Let's Discuss: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - RHOBH

Carlton Gebbia’s Friends Aren’t Surprised By Her Housekeepers Lawsuit!

Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Carlton Gebbia is known for stirring up trouble with her witchy ways which is why her friends aren’t shocked that one of her former employees slapped her with a lawsuit back in December.

In the lawsuit, Carlton’s former housekeeper accuses her of physically, emotionally, and verbally abusing her; claiming that Carlton once pushed her so hard she fell against a door.

Carlton has denied all the claims against her.

However, an insider reveals to Life & Style that Carlton “instilled fear in many of her employees” so much so that “they referred to her as ‘the Wicked Witch of the West.'”

While the insider didn’t witness any physical abuse, they did observe the extreme expectations Carlton placed upon her staff.

Carlton “would ring a bell and expect housekeepers to run to her within less than a minute” and if they didn’t, “she would punish them like a child. It was only a matter of time before a member of her staff couldn’t take it anymore.”

Friends are hopeful that this lawsuit could change Carlton and make her see the error of her ways.

“Carlton’s friends hope this case will be an eye-opener,” admits the insider. “and she will change.”

Are we surprised? I’m not at all. Carlton always gave me some weird vibes and treated herself like she was some queen, which she most certainly is not. I have a suspicion that these accusations are partially true.

Do you think Carlton was abusive to her employees? Can Carlton change her ways?

    She looks demented ?

    • Rain

      She sure does ?

  • michers

    Like her it not I’m calling BS on this . Furthermore NO friend would ever speak out like this . I wouldn’t doubt it’s the ex employee being their own sources said

    • justanothermary

      I think what we refer to as “friends” differs greatly from what these women consider friends. Look at Ramona and Sonja, they claim they are great “friends” but the way they speak about each other in their talking heads would certainly make one wonder. Same with Kyle and LVP. The list goes on and on. Living in a place where everything sparkles seems to cloud one’s perceptions.

      • michers

        Yeah really lol!!!

        • Kirby

          Hiya michers ??

          • michers

            Hi friend 🙂

    • Rain

      She and Kelly need to go on a road trip together ?

  • Yoyo

    Think I’m done with this site, you simply rehash others work rather than doing your own. Get off your arses and start doing some networking, forging relationships with sources and investigating stories (I hear court papers can be bought y’know) instead of saying *this magazine said this, i agree* fs

    • michers

      With situations that are legal stories I prefer( respectfully) facts instead of unnamed fame chasers being called sources who are clearly full of poop. Then of course, she is judged from the show a few years back as if anyone knows her when she didn’t get a fair shot and Kyle made sure she didn’t before season even started. The end . LOL 🙂

      • Rain

        You make great points ?

        • michers

          Thanks sweets

    • justanothermary

      This site has been undergoing some changes and yes, I agree, the majority of the articles are mostly cut and paste, but it didn’t used to be like that and I have faith that they are working to get this blog up to the standards it used to adhere to.

  • ????????Ð??Ð????
    • Kirby

      No surprise at all ?

    I never cared for Carlton. For one she gave me weird vibes. Secondly, she was so offended by everything regarding her beliefs and religion. Yet, she had her house decorated in crosses and had that confessional as decoration in her home. So easily offended, yet she was very offensive on her own. As a Catholic, I found it super distasteful for her to have that confessional in her home. Who does that?

    • Rain

      Vita dahling ?? it was silly that she was so offended yet she NEVER actually attempted to educate anyone about her religion!

      • Vita40

        I agree! It was an excellent opportunity for her to spread knowledge about her beliefs. A missed opportunity.
        Rain, I didn’t get to go to SF for NYE. Right before I left to visit my family in Indiana for Christmas I came down with this damn flu going around. I’m still dealing with it as it has turned into bronchitus and a sinus infection. I was so bummed!!!! Was looking forward to all the yummy food. But I have your recommendations bookmarked on my Yelp account. Sooooo when I finally get up there I will be visiting those spots!

        • Rain

          Oh Vita!! I’m so sorry , that’s such a pain , I hope you’re feeling better now or at least on the way to recovery ! The flu this year has been brutal and the vaccine has only been 10 to 20 % successful! ?? best wishes to you sweetie ??

          Well I went to Tartine last weekend and had black seasame ice cream ( I KNOW!!!) which was absolutely divine !
          Feel better and come to SF soon ????

          • Vita40

            Yes, slowly recovering. Tuesday will mark the month long mark of this whole fiasco. I did get my flu shot and it was my first time ever. At 36, I’ve finally decided that I should start getting the flu shot, and look
            what happens lol. Oh my!!! Tartine was on my list as a daily stop lol. I can’t wait to try it. Black seasame ice cream sounds delicious!!!

            • Rain

              There are a lot of dual infections this year of Flu AND a cold so many people are staying sick for weeks! I’m sorry again but I think you’re at the tail end of it ?????
              SF awaits you ?????

            • justanothermary

              So sorry you’re going through this. I have a compromised immune system due to chemo and steroid use (it was prescribed, FYI) so I really try to stay away from people when there is a bad flu like this one. However, it has been very very cold here this year so far and I’m hoping that the cold will kill off enough of the germs to let me get through the grocery store without picking something up.

        • ????????Ð??Ð????

          Get well soon Vita!!

          • Vita40

            Thank you!!!

      • ????????Ð??Ð????

        Happy Friday Fluffykins!!!??????
        Let’s get a jump on Caturday why don’t we? LOL

      I know Carlton is too weird and messed up for me! I remember she said in her talking head that people had sex in her confessional. I was very offended by that and I don’t get offended easy, I just let things slide off my shoulder but not the sex in the confessional

    • justanothermary

      Vita40 – completely OT I know, but I’m wondering if other Catholics are offended by the people in the Jersey franchise wearing Rosaries as adornment or having them hang from their rear-view mirrors. I went to Catholic school and was taught that wearing a Rosary in this fashion was vanity and that to use something so precious to the Church for adornment is highly offensive. We even wore our Saints medals under our shirts. It drives me crazy every time I see it and Joey has taken to wearing one all the time since the death of his mother. Surely there is something less offensive he could be doing to honor his mother. The Jersey clan can drop the “old-school Catholic” bit any time now.

    • Kirby

      She was weird and creepy and a bad casting decision

  • Rain

    I don’t doubt it . I’m sure many strange things were happening in that Wuthering Heights house of naked pool girls and Wicca !! I hope those children will grow up ok

    • ????????Ð??Ð????

      LOLOL, “strange things were happening in that Wuthering Heights house”!!! I hated that house, it was so cold and cavernous, not an inch of comfort from what I could see.

      • Rain

        With all kinds of strange naked girls in the pool ??? very kid inappropriate

        • ????????Ð??Ð????

          VERY

      • ~Medusa~

        I liked Carlton’s house:
        It’s creepy & it’s kooky, mysterious and spooky and altogether ooky, The Geb-bi-a Fam-i-ly!!! *snap, snap*
        Seriously, it was Gothic design with cathedral ceilings and a museum-like quality to it. I wouldn’t live there. But, I would stay there if it was a hotel along the Rhein River…

        • ????????Ð??Ð????

          Haha, that’s very true, I guess I didn’t like the owner and it clouded my vision. I loved The Addams Family and always wanted to be Wednesday, she was so damn cute!

          https://youtu.be/F3jnymeJof4

          • ~Medusa~

            Hehehehe…She was adorable. I can picture you being Wednesday.

      • Kirby

        I hated that house too bae

  • ~Medusa~

    I don’t doubt the claims made against Carlton. However, I wonder why her help didn’t simply quit? Why stay with an abusive employer?

    • September24

      Paycheck. It’s a necessity. If the help quits she forfeits a good reference which the next employer will need in order to consider her. Job hunting can get very sticky for those who don’t have a trust fund to fall back on.

      • ~Medusa~

        Hmmmm. Not to be flippant: being a housekeeper or water collector isn’t exactly impossible work to find with or without a reference. OR they can look for another type of job that doesn’t require previous experience.

    • Rain

      Good question ??

    • Vita40

      I’ll probably get insulted for speaking this truth. But, whatever. In LA, a lot of housekeepers unless you go thru an agency of some sort are undocumented immigrants or immigrants that don’t qualify for any other type of decent paying job. So imo, they put up with a lot to keep this type of job because they direly need it.

      • Rain

        I know that for a fact actually , you’re correct

      • ~Medusa~

        Oh, I see. Fair enough. I did not consider that. Thanks for the info.

        • Vita40

          I tried to word that carefully lol. Same goes for nannies. A lot of refferals are by word of mouth too. So I could totally see her employees working in fear.

          • ~Medusa~

            That’s awful for them. They are literally slaves.

      • ????????Ð??Ð????

        Exactly what I was thinking.

      • mystroxx

        how can an illegal sue an employer .they do not have rights if they are illegal.It has been insunated that the girl suing was more than a housekeeper nanny.

        • michers

          A lot of insinuations but nothing factual that I can see . Yet .

        • justanothermary

          Illegals certainly do have the rights afforded citizens while they are in our country.

          • mystroxx

            undocumented illegals after research I am afraid that they do not. I am talking about someone without a green card working.

  • September24

    The only fan Carlton had was Andy. And from all this he was way off base saying she didn’t get a fair shot.
