It’s Prime Time To Pay Up

A Los Angeles jury awarded actress Hunter Tylo nearly $5 million Monday after she was fired from her role as seductress Taylor McBride on TV’s “Melrose Place” because she got pregnant. The 34-year-old actress contended in her breach-of-contract and pregnancy discrimination lawsuit that one of the producers of the steamy show said: “Why doesn’t she just go out and get an abortion? Then she can work.” The Superior Court jury ordered Spelling Entertainment Group and Spelling Television Inc. to pay $4 million for emotional distress and $894,601 for economic loss. Tylo pronounced the verdict a victory “for every woman, for every child that’s not born.”
