Oprah Winfrey has a lot of money. What’s bad about that (for her), is that people know that she’s got a lot of money. Especially her ex-employees. One such ex is now suing the Queen of Daytime Talk for being illegally fired. Apparently, this employee, Corrinne Gehris, was fired after having sex in Oprah’s private jet. Two people witnessed it but Corrinne claims that it never happened. And several lie detector tests back up that statement. So, did she or didn’t she join the Mile High Club while on Oprah’s time? Hard to say. From The National Enquirer,
“Talk show titan sued by her private jet ex-flight attendant after being axed for sex with pilot in flight.
Corrine Gehris, in a lawsuit claims she was fired by Oprah’s company after allegations that she had sex with Chief Pilot Terry Pansing while Oprah and the other passengers were catching sone ZZZs on the Big O’s private jet.
Gehris’ lawsuit alleges that fellow flight attendant Myron Gooch and Kirby Bumpus, the daughter of Oprah BFF Gayle King, made the accusations that led to Gehris’ firing.
Despite both “lovers” passing rigorous lie detector testing which confirmed their innocence neither pilot or air server were rehired by Harpo, Oprah’s company.
Gehris charges that Oprah was well aware the accusations were “obviously false” as the plane was refueling on the ground when her stratospheric coitus was alleged and she wants more than $ 750,000 in damages from her accusers.
Oprah’s handlers have refused to comment to media queries.”
It’s pretty ballsy to sue Oprah Winfrey. She’s been sued so much, I’m sure she’s no stranger to the courtroom. But, maybe there’s something to base this case on. I mean, I know there are ways to cheat on lie detectors but to have two people pass them multiple times seems to point to the fact that they really are telling the truth. Although, they were already fired so, was it okay that Oprah didn’t rehire her? Hard to say. Maybe someone else had already filled the position. Maybe Oprah doesn’t fly by private jet anymore. Hardy-har-har.
I’m a big Oprah Winfrey fan and so, I’m usually one of the first to jump to her defense. But the fact that her reps aren’t talking makes me wonder if this might be true. Oprah has always cleared up her name whenever someone’s printed something false about her and it makes me wonder why she hasn’t this time. But, the fact that this ex-flight attendant is pointing to the fact that the plane was grounded at the time also makes me wonder about the employee’s story. I don’t think Oprah fired her for joining the Mile High Club. I think the issue is that she did it while she was at work. And last I checked, you could still have sex when you weren’t moving through the air at 550 miles per hour.
