Oprah Winfrey has landed in a bit of hot water after her cable television network, OWN, got sued by a former executive.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, a former employee by the name of Carolyn Hommel sued OWN network, claiming she was subjected to sex and pregnancy discrimination while she worked there. Hommel was hired by OWN network in 2010 as a senior director of scheduling and acquisitions, but had to take a medical leave due to being pregnant. The company hired a temporary employee and then Hommel a month after she gave birth. She is now suing OWN for an undisclosed amount.

Oprah is no stranger to litigation. The talk show queen has been involved in lawsuits brought about by people ranging from former employees to beef producers who claimed she cost them $12 million after a show on mad cow disease.
