November 22, 2012

For Brandi Cochran, the legal price this holiday season is most definitely right.

The Price is Right model first earned $777,000 in court this week, after winning a lawsuit she filed in 2010 because she alleged producers were mocking her pregnancy-based weight gain, referring to her as "wide load" and other cruel terms.
