One teen included on a special segment on teenage obesity on the Rachael Ray Show is taking producers and Rachael Ray to court for what she describes as incredibly degrading and physically harming treatment.Christina Pagliorolo weighs in at 260 lbs (117.9 kg). You can see her story, as included on the show, in the video below.
What you can’t see is the ridiculously brutal treatment she got from the trainer she got from producers: in court documents obtained by TMZ, she claims she was verbally abused, forced to hike in the mountains against her will, and put on a StairMaster when it was clear she could not keep up.
She fell from it and got yelled at again by the trainer. In the process, she also injured her legs, she claims.
Contacted for comment, a rep for the show tells TMZ that, “We haven't received this purported lawsuit but if it does materialize we will defend ourselves against it vigorously and fully expect to prevail.”
