A former Barker Beauty featured on the The Price is Right — America’s longest-running television game show — has filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles accusing showbiz legend Bob Barker of running her out of a job after she became pregnant.
The suit filed by Shane Stirling contends Barker had a major role in getting her booted from the show shortly after she announced her pregnancy in 2006, TMZ.com said Sunday.
Stirling claims Barker insisted she not work while pregnant because of liability issues. The model returned to work briefly in 2008 but was again let go because the show was “going in another direction.”
“The host of the game show had always been very kind and generous to Stirling until he learned that she was pregnant,” the lawsuit reads.
