    Oprah Winfrey and sexual discrimination are usually not mentioned in the same sentence, but Oprah’s OWN network has been hit with a sex discrimination lawsuit. Carolyn Hommel a former senior director of scheduling and acquisitions at Oprah’s OWN Network in 2010 claims she was fired after she became pregnant.

    In a suit, obtained by ABCNews.com, Hommel, who is seeking unspecified damages, claims that her superior at OWN, Michael Garner, gave her a “negative and untruthful performance” after she became pregnant, ruining her chances of promotion. But after she went on maternity leave in February 2012, not only was her job eliminated, but she was passed over for the vice president’s position, which instead went to the temporary employee.
