A  flight attendant on Oprah Winfey’s private jet filed a lawsuit on Friday against the media mogul for being wrongfully fired. 

In the suit, Corrine Gehrls, 39, claims that fellow flight attendants Myron Gooch and Kirby Bumpus (who is the daughter of Winfrey’s best friend Gayle King and is Winfrey’s god-daughter)  told Winfrey, Gehrls and chief pilot Terry Pansing, 57 engaged in sexual intercourse during a flight, while Winfrey and others were on board. The result of the accusation caused her to be fired.

After Gehrls and Pansing passed a polygraph to prove their defense, they were not rehired.

Gehrls is seeking more than $75,000 in damages from Gooch, Bumpus and Harpo Inc., Winfrey’s production company.

Sounds like someone is trying to stick Oprah for her paper. What do you think? Should she be rehired?
