Every time that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Carlton Gebbia pops up in the news, it’s never for a good reason. Most people forgot about Carlton’s time as a cast member. She was only on the show for one season and she never even popped up for a cameo appearance after that. Nevertheless, these outrageous news stories always pop up as reminder of her existence.
This time the news is very dark and troubling. A former housekeeper of Carlton’s has thrown some pretty heavy accusations her way and a lawsuit.
According to TMZ, the housekeeper filed a lawsuit against Carlton after working in her home for six years. The housekeeper claimed that the former Real Housewife “was often under the influence of alcohol and repeated physically, verbally and emotionally abusing her, including slapping her.” Wow. If that is all accurate, it’s sad that the housekeeper stuck around for all of that.
What was the finally straw that broke the camel’s back? The housekeeper claims that Carlton attacked her. Supposedly Carlton smashed a TV with a baseball bat so the housekeeper texted Carlton’s (almost ex) husband David Gebbia. Then Carlton “became enraged, yelled at her and pushed her so hard, she fell against the door.” After that she was given two weeks off before she was fired the next month.
Aside from the attack, the housekeeper claims that Carlton attempted to hurt herself and she threw herself out of the second story of her house. As expected, Carlton’s rep had no comment in response to these accusations.
Update: Carlton tells TMZ her side of the story and claims the whole mess is retaliation for Carlton questioning the housekeeper over missing jewelry. Carlton says she didn’t even know about the housekeeper’s lawsuit until she saw the article on TMZ. You can read all about that part of the drama here.
