Housekeeper: Poop-obsessed Broadway bigwig stiffed me on pay

A former housekeeper is suing her Broadway producer boss, claiming the exec paid her crap for meticulously cataloguing her treasured Wheaten Terrier Sandys eating, walking and pooping habits.

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike producer Barbara Manocherian required maid Maria Theresa Patel to adhere to exceedingly detailed and strict instructions for Sandy, who was lavished with around-the-clock attention, organic food and closely-monitored methods of being hand-fedKosher chicken, according to the Manhattan civil suit.

Patel and other staff members were required to detail the dates, precise times, and descriptions of Sandys feedings, walks, bowel movements, and other activities.

Manocherian, 60, whos won four Tony Awards, including one for Vanya in 2013, first hired Patel as a live-in nanny for her son in 1994. After helping raise the boy Patel doted on the familys pooch, boiling chicken for the terrier and hand-feeding the dog every three to four hours, the suit says.

Patel, 68, says in court papers that she accepted a low wage without overtime pay for her 15-hour daily work schedules because her boss promised to pay her full salary after she retired and claimed that she generously provided for her housekeeper in her will.

Despite decades of unflagging loyalty the Queens resident was canned from her $1,000-a-week job in August after her boss blamed her for bringing bed bugs into her Central Park West pad, according to court papers.

Manocherian maliciously spread these false and humiliating allegations about Patel as part of [her] scheme to turn Patel into a scapegoat to deflect the blame and humiliation that Manocherian was experiencing for having introduced bed bugs into the ultra-luxurious 135 Central Park West building, the suit says, adding that as a result of Manocherians malicious and untrue accusations . . . [Patels]opportunities to find further employment in domestic service are severely limited if not destroyed.

The suit seeks more than $7,000 for unpaid overtime wages plus damages for defamation and emotional distress.

Manocherian did not return calls for comment.

But, the excitement of the purchase started to fade asGindromade her way down the aisles.

"She said, 'Mom, my leg itches,'Gindororecalled. "I didn't think nothing of it - didn't pay no attention. I was like, 'whatever' and continued on about our way."

It was not until they made it to the register that the complaints got stronger from her daughter.

"And I looked down and she was covered in bites and I freaked out," she said.

Gindrosaid, she immediately went to customer service, telling them what happened and returning the pillow.

"So, he looked at her legs and he's like 'Oh my God' I said, 'So, here you go.' and he put it back on my card and that's all he really said,"Gindroexplained.

Walmart did issue a statement to ABC15 saying, "We take this seriously and want to thank Ms.Gindrofor bringing it to our attention. As soon as our managers found out, they called in a team to inspect the store."

Gindrosaid she does not want to blame Walmart, she just wants people to be aware of any items not in packaging.

"None of the things in the aisle were covered, so that means if it's on that who knows what else it could have been on,"Gindrosaid.
