I wonder if Pat O'Brien was there

Seems the "Access Hollywood" smarm machine has competition as TV's sleaziest host.

A producer of 'The Maury Povich Show' has sued the talk show host, claiming that the workplace was "permeated with the use of alcohol, pornographic videos and parties inviting open and notorious sexual activity."

In the complaint, filed Monday in the Supreme Court of New York, Bianca Nardi claims that Povich had "a long time, intimate and sexual relationship" with a member of the staff. She claims the alleged relationship "created a hostile workplace that was sexually abusive to woman (sic)."

Nardi claims she was forced to expose her breasts and have them photographed on the show. She also claims she was directed to "tape the chests of female guests... in order to photograph them with large 'boobs'."

This reminds me of a story I heard from a former Los Angeles TV anchor who worked alongside Povich's wife, Connie Chung. When she told the native Tennessean he should lose his accent, the anchor retorted: "And you should get something done about those eyes!"
