Suit: I Was Fired for Being Too Sexy
Lauren Odes.   (ABC7)

It's today's buzziest, trashiest story, and we decided to share it with you, dear reader, so you wouldn't be totally out of the loop.

  • What: Manhattan 29-year-old Lauren Odes is suing her employer after claiming she was canned for being "too hot," reports ABC7.
  • Wait, haven't we heard this before? Yes. Different lady.

  • Who is her attorney? Do you even have to ask? Gloria Allred, of course.
  • The most ironic part: Her employer is Native Intimates, a wholesale lingerie seller.
  • So what was she wearing? Things like a short-sleeve purple dress. Odes says there was no dress code.
  • The ickiest line: "When my supervisor asked me to tape down my breasts, I asked my supervisor, are you kidding?" says Odes.
  • The weirdest fashion moment: She says that on her fifth day of work she donned a knee-length black dress and a shawl, which she expected her bosses to find appropriate. Instead she says they made her cover up—with a red bathrobe.
  • The funniest line: Odes on her employers, who are Orthodox Jews: "I do not feel an employer has the right to impose their religious beliefs on me when I'm working in a business that ... sells ... boy shorts for women that say 'hot' in the buttocks area."
