Maid to Kim Kardashian: Clean Up Your Act!

Kim Kardashian is being sued by her former maid for $29,000. There's a big but, however, and it's not Kim's.

The maid -- Isabel Hernandez -- says in the lawsuit she worked for Kim when Kim was married to Damon Thomas. The maid claims Kim and Damon waited long periods before paying her lump sums. All was fine, until she got a mega check for $13,100 on March 25, 2006. It bounced like a rubber ball.

And there's even more stiffery: The maid claims she was supposed to pull in $7,800 a year but didn't get a penny in 2007 and 2008. She also wants $300 for 2009.

So what's Kim's defense you ask? Kim's lawyer, the effervescent Shawn Chapman Holley, says Kim divorced the dude in 2004 and moved out in February, 2003.

So what was the maid's first hint? We're guessin' the Apple Bottom Jeans disappeared from the chair in the bedroom.
