TMZ has the court documents from the EEOC filing by Nicole Spence against Wendy Williams and WBLS.  I have highlighted the parts I find interesting. 

The Severe and Pervasive Sexual Harrassment

  1. Throughout Ms. Spence’ s employment, Kevin Hunter (Wendy’s husband) repeatedly propositioned her at work in the most crude and vulgar ways, telling her over and over that he wanted to “fuck” her.
  2. Kevin’s sexual propositions escalated into the obsessive, and, during the work day, he constantly told Ms. Spence of his desire to “fuck” her and that he had been dreaming about sleeping with her.
  3. Kevin made demeaning remarks to Ms. Spence, including that she needed “a real man in [her] life to mold [her] into the woman that [she] was supposed to be.”
  4. Kevin openly referred to Ms. Spence and other women in the workplace as “bitches.”
  5. Wendy even offered to take Ms. Spence shopping so she could dress “like a sexy bitch” as Kevin demanded.  In fact, Wendy’s lack of respect for proper workplace conduct is demonstrated by her own conduct in forcing a subordinate to have sex with her to keep his job.
  6. Kevin told Ms. Spence that she was not cute but in fact was “just Jamaican.”

Physical Threats and Acts of Violence

  1. Kevin has sought to enlist other employees, including Charlamagne, Wendy’s co-host.  He told Charlamagne to “get at her” to “get into that bitch’s head” to “fuck her” in order to “break her down physically and mentally” and to ensure she “did not forget where she came from.”  As well he told Charlamagne to “keep your foot on her throat.”
  2. Despite repeated acts of violence, WBLS not only did not take sufficient steps to prevent future acts of harrassment, but gave Kevin free reign over the studio.  At one point, he demanded that female interns, under the threat of termination, wear bathing suits in the workplace.
  3. A human resources representative admitted to personally hearing Kevin proposition Ms. Spence and warned her to watch for him.

Complaints and Unlawful Retaliation

  1. On February 20, 2008, Ms. Spence filed a written complaint with Human Resources.
  2. Immediately after, Ms. Spence’s desk was re-located away from the rest of the staff.
  3. Wendy refuses to work with, acknowledge or speak to Ms. Spence and rejects all the guests booked by her without explanation.
  4. In response to Ms. Spence’s continuing complaints, the VP and GM of WBLS instructed her to prepare a job description for her position.  After complying with the request, tasks have been systematically removed from her.

Miss NJ:  I really want not to believe this but it sounds way too real to be fake.  As someone who once called the EEOC, I know you don’t get to this place without taking a lot of abuse.  What all these black folks are thinking is beyond me, especially after the disgusting display the Knicks gave us.  You would think they would have sense enough to have dealt with this quietly and effectively.  Now all the dirty laundry is hanging out.  So who do you think Wendy forced to have sex with her?
