Amanda Jenson, employed by PORTER in 2011, claims that when hired she was made to work 100 hours per week, with little to no breaks.
These hours included “13.5 hour shifts on Monday through Friday and 24 hour shifts (8 hours of which were unpaid) Saturday and Sunday,” according to lawsuit.
The suit also alleges that instead of watching the children, Jenson was responsible for cooking for the household staff, going to Costco and even “cleaning the floor if the family dog urinated, or defecated in the house.”
Jenson further claims the living quarters were “abysmal” and the bedroom door didn’t have a lock, according to the documents.
Jenson’s allegations follow claims made by another former nanny, Dawn Drago, who less than a month ago accused KIM PORTER of excessive smoking marijuana and leaving capsules of white powdery substances all around the house within reach of the twins.

Many celebrities, like KANDI BURRUSS and TAMI ROMAN, have gotten a little nip/tuck to smooth out their trouble spots, but how far would you go to banish your belly?
You’ve tried it all. Purchased an ab cruncher. Twisted into a pretzel for Pilates. Hired a personal trainer. Munched on pineapples like RIHANNA. Guzzled a lemon, cayenne pepper and maple syrup concoction like BEYONCE to get rid of that mushy midsection.
Whether those love handles are from your second child or your second chocolate cupcake, for most women, attempting to shed unwanted pounds is more of a mission impossible than a TOM CRUISE saga. These days, many ladies (celebrities and non-celebs) are opting for liposuction and tummy tucks (the faster and more costly option), over shredding their stomachs at Crunch Fitness.
“Growing up, I always had a six-pack, but after I had my daughter I got a little pooch in the abdomen area,” says Real Housewives of Atlanta star and businesswoman, KANDI BURRUSS. “You could see my abs, but I still had that [area] where my skin wasn’t as tight and stayed fatty. I always heard women say that I should get a tummy tuck…but I went [to a surgeon] and he said I didn’t have enough fat or skin, so he suggested I flatten it out with a just a little bit of lip….CLICK INSIDE TO READ MORE...
Last night a bevy of celebrities walked the swanky red carpet in style for the 2013 Met Gala Event held in NYC.
This year the annual event highlighted the Metropolitan Museums of Art’s spring exhibition, “PUNK: Choas to Couture,” and brought out a crowd of ‘rowdy’ dressed celebrities attempting to incorporate the ‘punk’ theme in their fashion choices for the evening.
BEYONCE, appointed honorary chair for this year’s fashion event, showed up this year in yet another Givenchy ensemble. Although her black and gold boots and gloves matched her dress, this year’s outfit choice no where matched the magic she created when turned heads and dropped jaws in her nude feather selection in 2012.
KIM KARDASHIAN also went for the all matching everything donning Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy, and proved to be even more unsuccessful than BEYONCE. In attendance were ALICIA KEYS and KERRY WASHINGTON who both had fun with the theme and punked out their hair with purple and red highlights.
However, it was SARAH JESSICA PARKER‘s killer Phillip Tracey mohawk headpiece, SOLANGE‘s Kenzo afro-punk take on the theme, and JENNIFER LOPEZ‘ skin tight animal skin dress that were knockout looks of the night.CLICK INSIDE TO SEE PHOTO GALLERY OF ALL THE CELEBRITY FASHIONS!!!
Last night’s Met Gala brought out celebrity fashion and a dose of celebrity emotion.
KANYE WEST accompanied his 7-month girlfriend KIM KARDASHIAN to the Met Gala, and when he took to the stage to perform, KANYE attempted to silence critics by singing KIM’s praises – literally.
WEST was captured on Vine singing to his soon-to-be baby mama, “Let nobody bring you down, you’re so awesome.”
The moment was felt by many, considering in the last few weeks KIM has been under the scrutiny for everything from her fashion choices, to rumors she and KANYE are experiencing relationship problems.
KIM took to Instagram to respond to her boyfriend adoration, and posted a picture of them at the Gala with the caption that read, “Baby you’re AWESOME.”CLICK INSIDE TO SEE MORE PICS OF KANYE AND KIM AT THE 2013 MET GALA!!!
While in London, BEYONCE found time during her non-stop tour schedule to sit down for an interview with Good Morning America.
The pop star discussed everything from the emotion that came with playing Queen Tara, in her newest animated film, “EPIC,” to how she dealt with the controversy surrounding her anniversary trip to Cuba a month ago.
BEYONCE got personal and mentioned her plans to one day give BLUE IVY another brother or sister. After being captured on tour with a what would appear to be a poke coming through her catsuit, a new baby may be sooner than we think.
The rapper posted a single tweet yesterday that read, “June Eighteen,” leaving people to wonder weather WEST was alluding to his baby mama KIM KARDASHIAN’s due date, or the date slated for his album release.
WEST was the first to announce KARDASHIAN’s pregnancy, so it’s highly likely that his latest tweet announces when he is expecting their unborn child to arrive.
However after NYC’s on-air radio personality PETER ROSENBERG claimed that the star’s record label had already held a listening party for his newest “dark” album, the tweet could also be the day his album drops.
The tweet is currently the only message present on his page, after he deleted all of his Twitter post history earlier this year.
We shall see.
The girl group which now consists of TIONNE ‘T-BOZ’ WATKINS and ROZONDA ‘CHILLI’ THOMAS, have confirmed they are working on new music.
After the untimely death of LISA ‘LEFT EYE’ LOPES, more than 10 years ago, the group has been on a hiatus, but are now ready to move forward.
“I’m nervous. Not because I don’t think [our fans] will like it. But more so just ’cause it’s been so long,” WATKINS admitted to Rolling Stone.
The two revealed that they have teamed up with artists DRAKE and NE-YO for songs on the new album.
“Everybody has been so responsive about working with us,” WATKINS says. “No-one has said no yet.”
THOMAS added that although they are set to perform at this year’s Mixtape Festival in America, fans can expect TLC to hold on their own tour in the near future, saying, “Trust me. It’s going to happen!”Photo Source: PR Photos
JANELLE MONAE is reminding us of the power of a message in music with the release of her video “Q.U.E.E.N.”
ERYKAH BADU, aka Badoula Oblongata, joins MONAE to prove once again when it comes to artistry and creativity she cannot be categorized.
Directed by SOLANGE‘s boyfriend Alan Ferguson, “Q.U.E.E.N,” totally gets MONAE’s “fandroids” excited about the release of her sophomore album, Electric Lady sometime later this year.
The Associated Press reports that KELLY allegedly died from a drug overdose when found unresponsive in his Atlanta home on Wednesday.
KELLY, referred to as “Mac Daddy,” was one half of the rap duo Kris Kross discovered by music mogul JERMAINE DUPRI in 1991, when he and CHRIS SMITH aka “Daddy Mac,” were only 13-years-old.
Known for their mature rapping skills, Kris Kross released their first single “Jump,” in 1992, and the song spent eight weeks on the Billboard Hot 100. It later helped their debut album Totally Krossed Out go multiplatinum.
Although they did not find much commercial success with their follow up albums, the group became iconic in hip hop fashion for wearing their clothes backwards, granted the opportunity to tour with pop star MICHAEL JACKSON, and appeared as guests on numerous TV programs.
