    Injured Audience Member Sues 'Oprah Winfrey Show'

    A woman is suing The Oprah Winfrey Show after she allegedly suffered serious injuries during a stampede to locate prime seats at the taping of the talk show.
    Orit Greenberg claims she was pushed down a flight of stairs by other Oprah audience members as they rushed into Harpo Studios in Chicago, Illinois in December 2006.
    Greenberg, who filed her complaint in Cook County Circuit Court in Illinois on Wednesday, alleges she and an "excess number of patrons" assembled in a waiting room before the show, and were then told to enter the studio and sit "where they wanted."
    At that point, she claims Winfrey's fans "rushed the gate" to the studio. Greenberg accuses Winfrey's production company Harpo of failing to adequately control the crowd, reports website TMZ.com.
    After suffering "severe and permanent injuries" from the incident, Greenberg is seeking over $50,000 for medical care and other damages from Harpo and "The Oprah Winfrey Show."

    Well, they probably are treated like cattle while waiting for the show to start. But I hardly believe she has suffered severe and permanent injuries. Bitch please.

    Look, if Saint Oprah sat on her I'd say she had a case but this? I think not. Greedy cow.

    Well, I do think it's pretty stupid to just tell people to "sit where they want." Of course they're all gonna be rushing for the best seats.

    I guess being a studio audience member is pretty lucrative these days. If you don't get freebies, you can always sue for injuries.
