Debrahlee Lorenzana appeared on Discovery Health's 'Plastic Surgery'
UPI News Service, 06/10/2010
The New York woman suing Citigroup for allegedly firing her because her body distracted male colleagues appeared on a 2003 TV series about plastic surgery.
Debrahlee Lorenzana, 33, whose lawsuit claims Citi bosses fired her for being too attractive, appeared on Discovery Health Channel series "Plastic Surgery New York Style" in 2003 to receive a breast augmentation, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.
She said on the show she hoped the surgery would make her a "huge, double-D" with "very perky" breasts.
"I love plastic surgery," Lorenzana said on the show, which came after she received a tummy tuck, her first breast enhancement and liposuction. "I think it is the best thing that ever happened."
Lawyers for Lorenzana said her love of plastic surgery does not change the case against Citi.
"Does that mean it's open season on a woman because she had her hair done or her nose done?" lawyer William Sipser said.
"Whatever her assets are, they don't have a right to comment on them or objectify her," said Jack Tuckner, another lawyer with Lorenzana's team.
