We were not aware that Maury Povich even had a talk show anymore, but then we’re not home during the day. And if we were, we’d be too bogged down with WOW podcast obsessions Oprah, Martha, and Tyra to bother with Maury. OK, so he has a show with a really fun website. But now a 28-year-old producer on his show, Bianca “Tape Girl” Nardi, is suing the show for $40 mil (10 for damages, 30 punitive), claiming the studio was “permeated with the use of alcohol, pornographic videos, and parties inviting open and notorious sexual activity.” And worse. And she doesn’t mean as daily topics for on-air discussion. (But probably that too.) One of her duties on the show, she says, was to tape the breasts of the female guests “in order to photograph them with large boobs,” whatever that means (doesn’t taping them make them smaller?) She also says, er, alleges that Maury had a long-running sexual affair with another producer, making for an ugly anti-female environment, and that she was forced to hike up her tits, go to bars and talk dirty to men, then secretly videotape them offering sex, all for segments that would air on the show. A mouthpiece for Maury says, er, alleges the accusations are without merit, but we think it sounds like the kind of behind-the-scenes machinations that make for good television. We’re gonna have to set the TiVo.
