You can’t be fired for being a woman — but you can be fired for being too hot.
A Manhattan judge has made that determination about a wrongful termination lawsuit brought by a beautiful blond massage therapist against her ex-employers — a chiropractor and his jealous, former Playboy Playmate wife.
Dilek Edwards, who is also a yoga teacher, sued her ex-boss, nude model Stephanie Adams, in 2013. Adams and husband, Charles Nicolai, co-own Wall Street Chiropractic and Wellness.
Dilek claimed that Adams, 45, a self-proclaimed lesbian married to a man, texted her in October 2013 warning “stay the F–K away from my husband and family!!!!!!” shortly after her boss admitted that his wife “might become jealous” of the limber, 32-year-old staffer because she’s “too cute.”
Edwards insists her relationship with the chiropractor was “strictly professional.”
Still, the day after the threatening text, Nicholai fired her.
Edwards argued in her suit that “firing a woman because of a gender-related aspect of her appearance is unlawful discrimination” because “attractiveness is directly tied to…gender.”
