I have to admit that when I first heard the story of Debrahlee Lorenzana I couldn't help but be a little curious.
For those who haven't been paying attention, Lorenzana is the woman who's apparently so sexy she was fired for it. She claims that she lost her job at Citibank in New York because her bosses considered her looks a distraction. They supposedly banned her from wearing certain kinds of clothing -- a lengthy list which, according to her, even included turtlenecks -- but eventually realized that nothing could suppress her overwhelming hotness. And so, for the sake of salvaging their marriages and, one would imagine, the self-esteem of the average, non-Olympian women working in the office -- they finally just had to can her outright.
This morning, Lorenzana made the rounds on the morning news shows, with her predictably insufferable lawyer in tow (she's now suing Citibank) and of course I had to tune in, since I hadn't yet gazed upon this temptress with my own eyes.
I'm glad I did -- because it was comedy bloody gold.
Yeah, she's very pretty. No doubt about it.
And then -- she opens her mouth.
