Sharon Stone's former nanny is suing the actress, claiming the actress repeatedly went on a tear against Filipinos, calling them stupid people.

Erlinda Elemen claims in her lawsuit ... Sharon would not cut her a break, berating her for her religion, even forbidding her from reading the Bible in her own room in Sharon's house.

Elemen, a Filipino woman, claims Sharon ordered her NOT to speak to the kids because she did not want them "to talk like you."

Elemen also claims Sharon bagged on Filipino food.

The former nanny claims Sharon tried to take back the overtime she was paid. Elemen says after she challenged Sharon on the OT, Stone repeatedly verbally attacked her for 3 weeks in front of guests, staff and others, and then fired her in February, 2011.

Sharon's attorney tells TMZ, "This is an absurd lawsuit that has been filed by a disgruntled ex-employee who is obviously looking to get money and way she can."

I would be more surprised if a lawyer came out and said yes my client did it. It is almost as riddiculous as a journalist asking a person that is being prosecuted for a crime and asking them if they are guilty.

Guess everyone is sensitive these days - always looking for the almighty dollar from the celebrities. Why didn't the maid leave at the first indication of disrespect. Know why? Simple $$$$$$$ It is her own fault for taking it. Hope she does not win a dime and is fined for wasting the Court's money - or I should say taxpayers money.

Don't call Ghostbusters, call Gloria Allred. Never mind, GA will read this story and call you. If she's not too busy chasing another ambulance.

There are stupid people all over this planet, including myself. BUT, we're also smart in ways our judges are not.
My hero, Will Rogers once said: "We are all ignorant, except in different things."
Ms. Stone may have one of the highest IQ's in show business, but it doesn't mean she is wise!

I thought liberals were not racist. The Filipinos and Latinos that are in the USA are here because they're poor. The USA is the country of opportunities. The wealthy and famous Filipinos and Latinos stay in their beautiful countries.

Casting stones at "liberal" Hollywood is ignorance at play. Conservatives make up most of the behind-the-scenes employees. And, if the stone-throwing (no pun intended) posters knew half as much of conservative actors/studio workers, etc., they would stop injecting politics into their posts.

it's a good thing her maid never poisoned her and her sons. it's a stupid thing to call your maid anything low when they are the ones sacrificing their life to help better your life on a daily basis.

Why don't these people seek out another job and then quit and report the abuse? They simply enjoy the good life until they're fired and then scream racism etc. after. Sounds like sour grapes to me and she shouldn't get a dime.
