'Too hot' ex Citibank worker now hires media-savvy feminist attorney

By Devaki

New York, June 15 (ANI): Debrahlee Lorenzana has hired media-savvy feminist lawyer Gloria Allred and a high-powered New York attorney to represent her in the case against Citbank - which fired her for 'being too hot'.

Allred's other high-profile clients include two Tiger Woods babes.

And she refused to say if Andrea Peyser's column inspired Lorenzana to dump the lawyer who brought her suit charging Citibank axed her for looking too sexy.

But Allred has claimed that her new client is a hero to all surgically enhanced bankers.

She "has been unfairly and viciously attacked in the media for having the courage to step forward and take a stand against blatant sex discrimination and retaliation," the New York Post quoted Allred as saying.

She griped that Lorenzana has been "ridiculed and attacked . . . by media pundits."

Lorenzana's new Big Apple-based lawyer, Mariann Meier Wang, said: "Obviously, Andrea Peyser's column was extremely unfair and inappropriate, precisely because this is a woman who suffered discrimination and very real retaliation."

The case for Lorenzana, 33, a single Queens mom, took a hit in the court of public opinion last week when footage emerged of her on a reality-TV show extolling plastic surgery.

But Allred said that if her client distracted male colleagues, they have no one to blame but themselves. (ANI)
