    Default Kari Wuhrer sues ABC for firing her from General Hospital after becoming pregnant

    Former US soap star KARI WUHRER is suing TV bosses at ABC claiming they sacked her from hit show GENERAL HOSPITAL after she told them she was pregnant.

    Wuhrer has filed suit in Los Angeles claiming her character, REESE MARSHALL, was "killed off" two weeks after the actress told producers when was expecting a child.

    In her suit, the actress claims ABC bosses have made other actresses choose between ending their pregnancies or losing their jobs and she names BOLD + THE BEAUTIFUL star LESLI KAY as another former General Hospital star who was dismissed after falling pregnant.

    Wuhrer's lawyer, MARTY SINGER, insists Kay will be a witness in his client's court battle.

    ABC bosses have hit back, insisting Wuhrer was fired because she didn't have "chemistry with her character's love interest."

    In her suit, the actress claims ABC bosses have made other actresses
    choose between ending their pregnancies or losing their jobs
    That's absurd. You force a woman to undergo a procedure like that
    rather than zoom in enough to hide their bellies?

    (Granted, their pregnancy will show in their face but their fans
    already know they're pregnant from reading those Soap Digest
    mags at the checkout.)

    Hunter Tylo was fired from Melrose Place in the late 90's because she became pregnant. There was a pretty nasty court battle, but the courts did find that Aaron Spelling had discriminated against her and awarded her 4.5 million dollars. So Kari's allegations might have some merit. However, the last time I checked General Hospital didn't have too many people prancing around in their bathing suits.

    I remembered when One Life to Live fired the actress that played Cassie Carpenter while she was out on maternity leave. Some of these writers are women too so you would think that they would understand. SHe might have some merit to her case. I liked Reese. I always wanted her to end up with Rick

    I haven't watched GH in years, so I don't know about her character... but if my bosses fired me because I was pregnant, I would sue, too. It is against the law to do that, and I hate people who are so egotistical that they think they are above the laws the rest of us commoners have to follow.

    I thought Tylo got like over 10 million when her suit was settled.

    I don't know about this.
    Genie Francis was pregnant every 12.5 months and they never fired her.

    I'm glad that they got rid of Reese and Carly. This new Carly I like, but the last one had the worse facial expressions I have ever seen. Kari got fired because she couldn't act plain and simple.

    I’m sure they would have contacted their lawyers before firing a pregnant woman. I think I’ll reserve judgment until I hear their side of the story

    Jeez, couldn't they have just written her pregnancy into the storyline? Maybe they weren't happy with her for some other reason and used the pregnancy as an excuse. Not that I'm an authority, as I haven't watched General Hospital since college days.
