Is This Woman Too Hot To Be a Banker?
The Village Voice ^ | June 1, 2010 | Elizabeth Dwoskin

Posted on 06/05/2010 7:14:48 PM PDT by Malone LaVeigh

Everything about Debrahlee Lorenzana is hot. Even her name sizzles. At five-foot-six and 125 pounds, with soft eyes and flawless bronze skin, she is J.Lo curves meets Jessica Simpson rack meets Audrey Hepburn elegance—a head-turning beauty. In many ways, the story of her life has been about getting attention from men—both the wanted and the unwanted kind. But when she got fired last summer from her job as a banker at a Citibank branch in Midtown—her bosses cited her work performance—she got even hotter. She sued Citigroup, claiming that she was fired solely because her bosses thought she was too hot.

"Men are kind of drawn to her," says Tanisha Ritter, a friend and former colleague who also works as a banker and praises Lorenzana's work habits. "I've seen men turn into complete idiots around her. But it's not her fault that they act this way, and it shouldn't be her problem."

Definitely ... Not Guilty!

This reminds me of the old remark “are you bragging or complaining?”

She seems to be making a lot of hay out of her “complaint”.

Yes, she is guilty. She needs to be a model, porn star, playmate centerfold or work for a advertising & marketing outfit as she is doing a pretty good job promoting herself.

She looks bad there compared to the dozen photos they took in business attire. In business attire she is smoking. I can see why they fired her because she would be so distracting.

I once worked with a bomb shell like that but even more so.

They had about a dozne photos like this in business attire and she was amazing. Nobody was going to get any work done with her around.

she is a gorgeous woman. I think, if her bosses are lying about her shoddy work ability, then they are worried about anyone and anything that might end them up in a lawsuit for sexual harassment. A gorgeous woman in sexy, tight, clothing might not be a chance they want to take.

I suspect it’s her behavior that’s the problem, not her looks.

Her current behavior of complaining about how distracting she is is a clue, and the poses in her publicity shots are also telling.

So will there be a leaked “private” video soon, or will there be a book first, “I’m So Hot I’m A Victim?”

What is sad to admit as a man? Admit that it would be hard to get work with her around?

I worked with something hotter than that and it was difficult. Not long after that it was “consumated” and made the work environment even harder. A lot of the male co-workers were jealous as h*ll too.

My grandma always told me to marry a woman with small hands.

I asked her why. She said it will make your d!ck look bigger.

Sounds like a lot easier way to make a buck than actually getting another job. Methinks the lady doth protest too much.

her figure looks average, weight wise for her age in today’s times I guess, does look a bit heavy hipped. but fellas project out 3-5 years....2 kids, no exercise, and I’ll bet her husband might be one of those guys walking 10-15 feet behind her at walmart or target on sat. morning givin’ it his best ‘she’s not with me’ look. you guys know what I’m talking about. now that view is from an old guy ‘skinny minny’ lover, (A. Hepburn!!), so my view might be all screwed up in today’s times. oh well...fire away!!!!
