The US Samantha Brick?

LOOKS like the US has got its very own Samantha Brick.

Lauren Odes, 29, is suing the New York City lingerie company where she used to work. The buxom peroxide blonde claims she was fired for being ‘”too hot”.

According to Odes, her bosses at Native Intimates – which is owned by Orthodox Jews – told her to wear baggy clothes, made her cover herself in an unbecoming bathrobe and suggested she tape down her breasts.

Odes, a New Jersey-native, made the claims at a press conference on Monday, flanked by her celebrity attorney, Gloria Allred.  “She was simply fired for being attractive and for not conforming to the religious strictures imposed by top management”, Ms Allred said.

Allred is known as a feminist lawyer and describes herself as a “fearless advocate for justice and equality”. Her clients have included a transgender beauty queen, a former reporter for the Houston Chronicle and a woman who accused former Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain of sexual harassment.

In a strange twist, Allred was sued this week by Okorie Okorocha , the lawyer who filed a sexual battery lawsuit against John Travolta on behalf of two male massage therapists and then dismissed it. Allred then took up their case and Okorocha is accusing her of poaching his clients.
