The fourth season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was kind of a treasure (aren’t they all?) in that Kyle Richards was spooked into not flaunting her husband’s real estate company or whatever product she was trying to hawk that hour due to ensuing witchcraft. No, not from a Camille Grammer dinner guest or her in-house medium. It was Carlton Gebbia, noted witch and…well…we’ll keep it at noted witch. She was fired after one season, but she’s now getting attention thanks to her Slytherin House antics.
TMZ reports a former Gebbia household nanny/housekeeper/etc. is now suing Carlton for basically being a real witch of a boss. The “housekeeper/nanny/chauffeur/grocery shopper/assistant” was hired by Carlton in 2011 and worked for six years up on Witch Mountain. No, really, don’t y’all remember what Carlton’s house looked like? It was as though she gave Elvira a blank check and said, “Design me the castle of your biggest nightmares!”
The employee – going by Jane Doe in the filing – says Carlton was always drunk and physically, verbally, and emotionally abused her over her tenure. Carlton would slap her and even attack her. She even says Carlton once tried to throw herself off the second story of her home. Jane Doe notes that she texted Carlton’s husband David Gebbia, who has filed for divorce, one time after Carlton broke the TV in the living room with a baseball bat (presumably because a Kyle By Alene Too commercial was on?). Jane tried to calm the Hermione Granger of Beverly Hills down, but she was having none of it and “became enraged, yelled at her and pushed her so hard, she fell against the door.” Oh dear! That kind of behavior gets you promoted from “Friend of the Housewives” to main cast if you’re still on the Bravo payroll, but Carlton was certainly not, so all she’s getting is this lawsuit and memories of popping up on a Lady Gaga video for a song on Artflop.
The nanny was given two weeks off and fired a month later. When reached for comment, Carlton’s rep (who I really just hope is the Long Island Medium in a disguise) said, “No comment,” which is really just witch talk for “I’m too busy crafting a hex to deal with your mortal questions.” AKA GUILTY! Or does it?
TMZ says Carlton is now slapping back to say nanny Jane Doe is just a Bitter Betty. Carlton claims she noticed jewelry of hers had disappeared and the nanny had access to it over the years. When Carlton asked the nanny to take a lie detector test, she didn’t show up to work for two weeks. The family eventually let her go. While Carlton says she never attacked the nanny, she did smash the TV as a “fun” thing with her kids. I guess this is the same kind of fun Kevin Spacey will have when he sees President Claire mopping the floor clean on the last season of House Of Cards.
