New nanny claims Rob Lowe's wife a harasser

Tbdrobsheryllowe050208 Another nanny in the Rob Lowe sexual harassment stew has filed a cross complaint, this time against his wife Sheryl. TMZ says Laura Boyce is accusing Mrs. Lowe of being pretty vulgar during Boyce's employ, doing such family-friendly stuff as walking around the house naked, talking about Boyce's boyfriend's penis (as well as those of Lowes' children), talking about her sex life with Rob and making pretty racist statements that we choose not to repeat.

Boyce's complaint also claims wrongful termination, abuse of process, unpaid salary and labor code violations, the site says. We're still stuck on the part about her discussing her children's sex organs.

"Having struck out against Rob Lowe, (attorney) Gloria Allred now seeks to drag his wife and children into the fray. In response to a lawsuit against Laura Boyce by the Lowes, Allred filed a cross-complaint on behalf of Boyce, which contains false allegations, in an apparent attempt to divert the negative publicity which Allred's client, (Jessica) Gibson, has universally received," Lowe lawyer Larry Stein said.

"Although framed as a sexual harassment claim against both Sheryl and Rob Lowe, the cross-complaint alleges only words by Sheryl and never mentions any words or conduct by Rob whatsoever. The alleged statements by Sheryl are totally unrelated to, and do not provide any support for, Gibson's claim against Rob."

Still, it doesn't make us want to fill out any applications to work at Casa de Lowe any time soon.
