Borgata Babes

A sexual harassment case lodged against Atlantic City's Borgata Hotel has been settled according to a report in Newsday.

The newspaper reports:

Renee Gaud, 38, a former Mays Landing resident who now lives in Canada, and Trisha Hart, 30, of Wenonah, had claimed the casino humiliated costumed waitresses _ known as "Borgata Babes" _ by imposing weight limits, encouraging breast augmentation surgery and emphasizing looks over job performance.

The women had claimed the weight-limit policy _ which threatened suspensions if female cocktail servers gained more than 7 percent of their body weight _ forced them off the job.

Gaud, who suffers from a thyroid condition she said made her weight fluctuate, gained weight but was refused a larger costume and took a leave of absence because of stress over an impending, casino-mandated weigh-in.

The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa cocktail servers are famous for their cut-down-to-there, pushed-out-to-here, taped-up-from-where costumes. There are more than 160 "Borgata Babes" and over 50 male counterparts.
