By SAMUEL MAULL, Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK - A producer for TV talk-show host Maury Povich filed a $100 million sex harassment lawsuit against him and other members of his staff Monday, claiming they barraged her with sexual remarks and made her watch porno movies and expose her body.

Bianca Nardi, 28, of Fort Lee, N.J., says in court papers that the sexually charged atmosphere among the show's production staff was fostered by the "intimate and sexual relationship between defendants Maurice Richard Povich and Donna Benner Ingber."

Court papers also say Nardi had an unfairly heavy workload because she did tasks that were supposed to be done by Ingber, who often refused to do her own work — without penalty — because of her relationship with Povich.

Povich is married to the veteran television news anchor Connie Chung.

Gary Rosen, spokesman for the show, flatly denied the allegations, as did a spokeswoman for NBC Universal.

"We are aware of the allegations of harassment made by Ms. Nardi. We have done a complete and thorough investigation of her allegations of harassment and we are satisfied that there is no merit to them," Rosen said. "We stand behind our experienced and dedicated staff, fully."

"We do not believe that Ms. Nardi was a victim of unlawful sexual harassment and intend to defend this lawsuit vigorously," NBC spokeswoman Rebecca Marks said.

The suit contains a list of sordid allegations.

Ingber, who is also named as a defendant, "many times in an intoxicated condition, telephoned (Nardi's) residence at all hours of the late evening to discuss her personal relations with defendant Povich (and other men whom she was secretly seeing)" and to ask Nardi what staffers were saying about the relationship, court papers say.

Nardi says she went to work for the show in June 2000 and was promoted twice. She worked there until this month, when she took a temporary medical leave, said her lawyer Bruce Baron.

Through the nearly six years of her employment, Nardi's court papers say, Paul Faulhaber, executive producer of "The Maury Povich Show," ordered her to wear short skirts, low-cut blouses and push-up bras. Faulhaber is also a defendant in the suit.

Court papers say Faulhaber directed her to wear concealed cameras and microphones for undercover assignments "such as going to bars to secretly videotape married men agreeing to have sex with her."

Nardi complains in court papers that these activities were outside her job description but she was forced to comply for fear of being fired. Her lawsuit says that when she complained, Faulhaber retaliated by making her do other demeaning jobs.

Court papers say Faulhaber forced Nardi "to run a gauntlet of sexually abusive and intimidating conduct," including posing in sexually explicit positions, exposing her breasts and watching porn with Faulhaber.

Baron said Monday that Nardi has been in psychiatric treatment because of the harassment. He also said she gained 40 to 50 pounds because of the workplace stress.

Besides, Povich, Ingber and Faulhaber, the lawsuit names NBC Universal Television and Povich's production company, Mopo, as defendants.

The lawsuit asks at least $100 million in compensatory and punitive damages.
 
did you paint eyebrows on Batmans face in your avvy?

She was only a victim of the lawful kind. :D

IT SHOWS UP FINE FOR ME.........AND I DIDN'T REALIZE IT WAS 'TRIPOD', BECAUSE I JUST DID A QUICK GOOGLE. :o
 
She is just another woman who doesn't want to work and is taking the easy way out. I mean come on now how can they make her watch porno's and expose her body parts? She has legs she could walk away.
 
She needed a job where she could actually support herself, rather than cleaning toilets or making french fries and frosties? When you're very concerned about how you'll support yourself/pay your bills, it becomes much harder to walk away and easier to put up with things you shouldn't have to.

Sounds like she got the job out of college (she's 28 and been there for 6 years) so it would appear it's the only 'real' job she had. She may have been concerned that she wouldn't be able to get a new job if they fired her because they could also give her a bad recommendation and she really didn't have another place to get one.
 
Illegal immigrants--what are we gonna do without em?
 
I don't buy that.

Even if it were true she doesnt deserve 100 million dollars
 
I'm not saying she does deserve that much, or necessarily any as I don't know the merits of the case, much less the evidence.

I'm just explaining how it could happen and someone wouldn't walk away.

I worked at a place where the boss was downright abusive (even going so far as throwing things at people). I left, because I could, but there were people who had been working for him - taking that abuse - for years because they were scared they wouldn't be able to get a new job.
 
Where the hell is the picture? The picture alone can tell me if she deserves the money or not.

Good points, Daisy.

BUT THAT'S AS BAD AS A WOMAN STAYING IN AN ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP, BECAUSE SHE'S AFRAID OF BEING ALONE, OR WHATEVER. IF YOU ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE A VICTIM, THEN YOU PRETTY MUCH DESERVE WHATEVER HAPPENS TO YOU.
 
Wow, you inconsiderate twip. So if a woman stays with an alcoholic, drug addict, because she believes in her heart he can change, she deserves to be beaten? :down People like you is the reason why there is such thing as abusive relationships.

And you type that crap in all capitalz too, WTF?
 
does anyone here watch Maury? it seems obvious that she was one of the "decoys" that they usually try to set guests up with in order to catch them in the act of cheating. has she ever seen an episode?

I DIDN'T MENTION ALCOHOLICS OR DRUG ADDICTS, YOU JACKASS. BUT YES, IF A WOMAN CONTINUES TO TAKE BEATINGS, BECAUSE SHE "BELIEVES HE CAN CHANGE", THEN SHE DESERVES TO BE BEATEN. :rolleyes:

BTW......JUST GO AHEAD AND PUT ME ON IGNORE, BECAUSE THE "ALL CAPS" THING IS PERMANENT. :o
 
Maury Povich was naked with someone. Just let that concept settle in. Airsick bags are located in the seat pocket in front of you.
