(Newser) – Those Price is Right models always look good—and one former model claims show producers were so invested in keeping it that way, they emotionally abused her during her pregnancies. Brandi Cochran (also known as Brandi Sherwood, according to Game Show Kingdom) is suing the show, claiming the stress she suffered led to a miscarriage. In documents obtained by TMZ, she alleges, among other things, one producer called her “wide load.”

Cochran didn’t disclose her first pregnancy, in 2007, due to fears she’d be fired—but when she miscarried, she says a producer told her, “It’s nature’s way of getting rid of a bad baby.” During her second pregnancy, a producer allegedly looked upset when he found out she was expecting twins, and another used the “wide load” comment. After suffering complications and going on disability, Cochran claims she was pushed out of her job on Feb. 23.
