Brandi Cochran, a former "Price is Right" model, was awarded a whopping $7.7 million in punitive damages after suing the show for discriminating against her while she was pregnant. In her lawsuit Brandi claimed she was the victim of vicious taunting, and was called names like "wide load."
Earlier in the week Brandi was awarded over $777,000 in damages, but was awarded punitive damages for intentional wrongdoing. The jury found that the show was guilty of multiple counts of wrongdoing, to the tune of over $7 million.
Mike Richards, an executive producer for the show, spoke about the lawsuit to TMZ, telling them that Wednesday was "a tough day for The Price Is Right and its staff." He also added that there is one model who went through two pregnancies on the show, and says "If we don't like pregnant models, we sure have a funny way of showing it."
