Rachael Ray Show Sued

260 lb Teen Says

They Made Me Take a Hike!

EXCLUSIVE

0416-rachael-ray-gettyA very large teen claims the "Rachael Ray" show is more brutal than CrossFit, more grueling than P90X, more intense than "The Biggest Loser" -- and it all ended with humiliation and anxiety.

Christina Pagliarolo -- who weighed in at 260 lbs -- agreed to be part of a segment on overweight teens.  She claims in her lawsuit ... the trainer made her run like Forrest Gump, yelled and screamed at her, and made her hike in the mountains.

Worst of all, she says the trainer put her on a StairMaster and kept cranking up the speed until she fell off the machine ... and then he yelled at her for falling.

Christina says she was a mess after training ... suffering serious injuries including messed up legs.

Christina is suing for negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Wow ...    

If the girl is a "teen" her parents are the decision makers here and are behind them suing Rachel. Clearly, the parents do not make wise choices, otherwise their child would not be obese. JS.

This pig will probably have a heart attack before the case is heard.

I wouldnt go see her again if you offered me money... complaining about her busy schedule and no time... if it wasnt for us fans she would be nothing...wouldnt acknowledge the audience at all during the whole 2 hours taping...

Wooooow. I wasn't expecting her to be that big of a porker. If she skips a meal she will lose 10lbs right there.

Suck it up, fatso, and quit trying to make dime on someone else that DOESN'T stuff their stupid mouth with junk food 24/7! It's only going to get worse the longer you wait. Shame on the enabling parents, I'll bet they're tipping the scales at >300lb themselves.

I bet if her trainer hung a pie at the top of that stairmaster she would have set a frigging world record.

Wait a minute. if you weight 260... lbs, 5 feet height, what shall they do? Giving you a massage or hypnotic music? NO!
Only a drill sergeant can make you loosing weight by kicking your lazy butt as hard as possible 24h a day...they should have beaten her as well

Has the enormous idiot realised that the reason she is so fat is because she is eating too much for a human sized creature?

This girl needs to grow up and lose some weight. She is committed to a life of obesity.
