Ex-model accuses 'Price Is Right' producer

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- A former show model has accused a producer on "The Price Is Right" of sexual and racial harassment.

Claudia Jordan, an African-American fired from the show about a year ago, filed a formal complaint accusing Phil Wayne of groping her and making offensive remarks.

"He touched me. He made comments," Jordan told Celebrity Justice. "I was the butt model, if I was bending over in the mirror to do my makeup, I mean, it's like open season."

Wayne no longer works for the "Price is Right."

Jordan was quick to say Bob Barker, the executive producer, did not bother her but considers him was just as responsible.

Barker and the show have been under legal attack for years by women who made a variety of allegations, from harassment to wrongful termination.
