When I think of Waffle House, I think of breakfast. I don't think of sex tapes and blackmail and secret affairs.
But, I guess I wasn't aiming high enough, because Waffle House seems to
have so much more to offer. In what's turning into a pretty weird and
vicious game of he-said/she-said, the Waffle House CEO accused of sexually harassing his housekeeper for a decade says she's crying wolf. However, he may have been caught on tape. D'oh.
Lawyers for the woman, who alleges that Waffle House CEO Joe Rogers Jr. sexually harassed her and forced her to perform sex acts
to keep her job for nearly a decade, turned over DVDs she made in
secret. Meanwhile, Rogers is calming that the woman tried to extort
millions from him and is crying blackmail and claiming everything was consensual. Whaaaaat? Pass the maple syrup, please. Looks like things are just getting started.
the allegations surfaced last week, it painted a pretty sleazy picture
of the Waffle House exec. The woman says she kept the job (and dealt
with his advances) because she was a single mother and had to take care of her son. Now that he's got a college scholarship, she could speak up. My heart went out to the woman.
Rogers is claiming she said yes all along and that she and her lawyers sent a threatening blackmail letter,
which certainly complicates the picture. But ... but why would she turn
over sex tapes to the courts, tapes that are being kept private for
now, if they didn't support her claims? That doesn't really
make sense. Why would you turn over tapes that would ruin your case
against someone who, if guilty, abused his authority and his power in
such a disgusting way?
You wouldn't. Would you? I'm also so curious to know what's in this
letter Rogers claims he was sent that he's calling "extortion."
I know we're all innocent until proven guilty, but this story totally
skeeves me out. Shudder. But I kind of can't wait to see what happens
Do you think the sex tapes will prove that Waffle House CEO Joe Rogers Jr. is guilty or innocent?
What do you make of all the sex scandals in the news recently?
