Mary Murphy

I'm NOT a Nympho But ...

My Manager Screwed Me

EXCLUSIVE

0522_mary_murphy_article
Mary Murphy is convinced ... her former manager is now accusing her of being a coke-head and a nympho because she fired him and sued him for allegedly stealing $60,000 from her ... sources with knowledge of the situation tell TMZ.

As we reported, Michael Sanchez sued Murphy Monday for commissions, and in the lawsuit he alleged a panoply of misdeeds on Murphy's part, including claims that she was wasted on the set of "So You Think You Can Dance," snorted cocaine, slept with a producer and illegally coached contestants.

But sources connected with Murphy tell us ... they believe Sanchez is trying to embarrass Murphy on the eve of the show's Thursday premiere because she has sued him for double-dealing her over a show she was in -- "Burn the Floor."

According to the suit, filed in December, Murphy says Sanchez secretly went to producers of the play and told them not to pay Murphy directly, but rather to put the $60,000 in his account and then he would take care of her. Murphy says Sanchez didn't give her a penny.

Murphy's lawsuit has been put on hold because Sanchez has filed for bankruptcy. She's listed as a creditor.

Sanchez' lawyer tells TMZ ... Mary filed her lawsuit right in the midst of negotiating a settlement between the two of them, adding, "Our lawsuit speaks for itself ... We are confident Mary's weak attempt to get out front with a frivolous, error-filled action will have no impact on our fact-based lawsuit."

She's ugly & annoying. And yes, she was VERY CLEARLY often wasted on set for SYTYCD.

And by the way , why isn't TMZ reporting on Loser Lohan's latest f**k up?
-
She is 'demanding' to have a say in who plays Richard Burton in that 'Liz & Dick' movie - and demanding they pay for her to go to London (i.e. She wants a free European vacation) to try and find the right actor.
-
“Lindsay is being an absolute nightmare about who should play Burton. She believes Matthew Settle is too old to play the role, and she wants a major A-list star to be her co-star. However, her salary for the role took up a major portion of the budget, and the Burton gig will likely only pay $200k, max. The producers don’t need to get Lindsay’s approval of who will play Richard Burton, but they want to keep her happy.”
-
If it was REALLY about getting the right actor - she'd drop her own salary (the producers should do that for her!)
-
What a loser! She claims she's changed - and then is a nightmare for the producers. They should be smart and DROP HER NOW!

This loud mouthed, plastic attention whore must have jumped on many a casting couch to be able to get a gig on a tv show to begin with. No surprise here.

Other than judging this dance show, can someone tell me what else she has done? I've never heard of her until recently.

After the things he said, if she does not sue him for libel, she she validates his claims since the only reason not to sue is that the truth is the defense to such a case.

I knew he was lying from the start. No one wih any morals would make those sorts of allegations against a former client. He's a loser on his way down.

All I know of this person is from a few little snippets on The Soup and based on that small sampling, I'd say cocaine is quite plausible and not even a remotely surprising accusation.
