'Price is Right' Model Files Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Against Producers

by Chris Harnick, posted Sep 8th 2011 2:35PM
Lanisha Cole, Price is RightA former 'The Price is Right' model is suing the show's producers on charges of sexual harassment, false imprisonment and wrongful termination.

Lanisha Cole alleges producers Michael G. Richards and Adam Sandler -- not the actors -- created a hostile work environment starting in December 2009 after Richards stopped talking to Cole directly.

In the suit filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court, Cole claims Richards created personnel policies that were intended to deprive her of work, something the other models on the show were not forced to do. Cole's suit also says Sandler entered a female dressing room -- without permission -- while Cole was naked from the waist up and only wearing "a very sheer thong bikini underwear bottom" and berated her for failing to wear a microphone, something she says was not her fault.

Valencia will need at least one friend to drive home with after her big win on 'The Price Is Right' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS). Maybe even two, if she drove to the studio herself. Valencia won two cars, plus a few other items, during her game in the first part of the show and then later, her Showcase Showdown.

Playing 'Money Game,' Valencia picked the right numbers and won a two-door sedan. Then in the Showcase Showdown, she bid $21,500 on a package with a laptop computer, a virtual assistant, and a four-door sedan. Her opponent Maureen bid $34,000 on a package with iPod Touches, a trip to New York City, a party boat, and $4,000 in spending cash.

'The Price Is Right' salutes the military'The Price Is Right' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) saluted the military Thursday for the July 4 holiday weekend with a special episode.

Joshua's showcase was an off-road motorcycle, quad bike, a tailgater, and an SUV. Amber's was a trip on a private jet to Vegas, a Mustang convertible, and $2,500 in spending cash. Either would have been a nice haul, but both contestants underbid by a wide margin.

A great day at the wheel on 'The Price Is Right'Usually the big money on 'The Price Is Right' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) is won in the Showcase Showdown at the end of the show. Friday, it was in the spin of the big wheel, where two contestants in a row hit the "$1.00" mark, winning a thousand dollars each. Both almost missed seeing the wheel's final click while saying hello to their families.

Each contestant earned a second spin, which is where things got really interesting. On her second spin, Bailey got 95 cents, which seemed impossible to beat, until Kimberly took her turn and hit one dollar for the second consecutive spin. All host Drew Carey could do was yell, "Watch out! Watch out!"

That gave Kimberly a nice cash boost of $25,000 before she even got to the Showcase Showdown. She eventually lost that, but still took home a good haul...before taxes, anyway.

Tatia wins a big showcase on 'The Price Is Right'Often on 'The Price Is Right' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), there is a big showcase and a somewhat smaller showcase on the Showcase Showdown. Thursday, it was two big showcases, and neither contestant came within $9,000 of the actual values of their respective prize packages.

Tatia passed on a "Swimmer's Bliss" package, which included a swim spa, a trip to the Wisconsin Dells water park, and a sport boat. Drew made what seemed like a reasonable bid of $24,500. Tatia's package looked like the "big" one. It included four iPads, a Lincoln MKS SUV, trips to Zion National Park in Utah and Key West, Fla., and $3,000 in cash. Tatia bid $45,000.

In reality, the two showcases were roughly $3,000 apart. Drew's package was valued at $51,114, leaving him under by more than half of its value, which made host Drew Carey say "Wow." Tatia's package was valued at $54,413, leaving her $9,413, which wouldn't be good enough for the win most days. That brought Tatia to $57,412 in prizes for the day. As Carey said, "A good haul for one day's work. Not bad."

Edwin beats Donna on 'The Price Is Right'Edwin is going to need a lot of suntan lotion after Wednesday's 'Price Is Right' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS). He won big in the Showcase Showdown, picking up a garden cabana and shower, trip to the Turks and Caicos Islands, and a sailboat in addition to the two Honda Rebel motorcycles he had won playing Double Prices earlier in the show.

He didn't win because of his mastery of price guessing, though. Edwin bid $25,000 on his showcase, which turned out to be worth $38,316. Usually, a bid $13,316 under the retail price won't do it for you on 'The Price Is Right,' but benefited from an overzealous opponent.

Donna bid $35,500 on an Apple computer, a trip to New York, and a car, a package valued at $32,804. Although she was a lot closer, she went over so she lost. Edwin wound up with $49,613 in prizes. Sorry, Donna; thems the rules.

Kari and Drew Carey on 'The Price Is Right'Kari really needed a car, but she came up a little short Tuesday on 'The Price Is Right' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS). Kari nearly convulsed when her prize was unveiled and was hugging host Drew Carey and screaming, only 15 cents away from winning the car in Pocket Change, but came away a nickel short.

She'd soon make up for it, though, in the Showcase Showdown. Kimberly, her opponent, had a chance to win a surf board, an ATV and an SUV. Kari's showcase was a Whirlpool tub and vanity, spa vacations to Sedona and Switzerland, plus $3,000 cash.

Kimberly bid $28,000 on her showcase, and Kari bid $20,000 on hers. Kimberly's showcase was valued at $33,902, leaving her $5,902 under. Kari's was valued at $22,907, giving which put her just under $3,000, enough for the win and to make her scream directly into Carey's ear. Imagine if she'd won the car.

Contestant wins double showcases on 'The Price Is Right'Gloria passed on her first chance to win an outdoor dining set, a spa, and a trip to Puerto Rico on Tuesday's 'Price Is Right' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS). Instead, she chose a Showcase Showdown package including an Xbox with the WWE All-Stars game, an LCD HDTV, a trip to Summer Slam and a car. In the end, Gloria wound up with both packages.

It doesn't happen often, but if a contestant bids within $100 without going over, they win a "double showcase." Gloria's opponent Monica bid $13,000 on a showcase that wound up being valued at $34,801. "You missed it by that much," lamented host Drew Carey.

Gloria had much better luck. She bid $27,000 and her showcase was valued at $27,041, which means she'll be able to play her Xbox in her new spa. We're just hoping she doesn't drop the controller.

Grant's opponent, Grenz, was bidding on a showcase that included a watch, maid service, massage service, and a trip to London. Grant got the dirty showcase while Grenz got the clean one. Grant bid $21,000 on his showcase and Grenz bid $23,000.

A man and his new Cadillac on 'The Price Is Right'There is often a healthy difference between the price tags for the packages on the Showcase Showdowns on 'The Price Is Right' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS). Tuesday's edition saw a larger-than-usual difference in value between the dueling showcases, and also a big winner.

Joshua's showcase was Elvis themed, with an Elvis Caribbean cruise, a trip to see Cirque du Soleil's Elvis show in Las Vegas, and, of course, a Cadillac. He bid $42,000 on that. His opponent Stephanie's showcase included trips to see three Cirque du Soleil shows - 'Believe' in Las Vegas, 'Zarkana' in New York, and 'Corteo' in Spain - plus $3,000 in spending cash. She bid $28,000.

In the end, host Drew Carey, dressed in an Elvis scarf, revealed that Stephanie had overbid by more than $5,000, and Joshua underbid by $6,210. Joshua's showcase was worth more than double Stephanie's showcase. But then, everything with an Elvis theme seems to be a bit bigger.

Pamela and Drew Carey on 'The Price Is Right'If Pamela didn't have a garage before she came on 'The Price Is Right' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), she certainly needs one now. The contestant won her first round playing "One Away," earning her first car, a Honda Accord LXS. By the time she got to the Showcase Showdown, she had a good feel for the price of vehicles, and was able to make a close bid.

Pamela's showcase was a trip to New York, several watches, and a Ford Mustang (red, like the car she had won earlier). She was going up against a woman whose showcase consisted of a rope hammock, a barbecue island, and a Caribbean cruise for four.
