"Stowers’s experience on Vanderpump Rules during Season 4 included sexual harassment and physical violence," the legal documents read. "When Stowers confided in a producer that she had developed feelings for Kent, production seemed gleeful to make the dynamic as awkward and uncomfortable as possible."

"For the cast trip to Hawaii, production arranged for Kent and Stowers to stay in a room with a single bed. Moreover, production pressured Kent and Stowers to ‘get intimate’ and "touch each other sensually on camera," she stated.

She alleged she received a call from an executive producer to "discourage her from involving the police or escalating the situation by speaking to the media." Stowers claimed the EP "downplayed" the alleged events' "significance" and "strongly implied" that speaking out would come with "severe career ramifications."

She also alleged that she was warned "she would be terminated if she could not find a way to 'get along' with Kent."

RadarOnline.com reached out to Kent's lawyer and Bravo for comment.

Stowers is suing for several things, including alleged discrimination, hostile work environment, wrongful termination, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and more. She's demanding unspecified damages.

Stowers' powerhouse lawyers, Mark Geragos and Bryan Freedman tell RadarOnline.com, “NBC and Evolution clearly believe that workplace safety rules, employment laws, and basic decency do not apply to those in reality TV. Vicious assaults, racist harassment, and impugning the service of veterans are apparently acceptable to NBC and Evolution for the sake of ratings. Faith did not know what kind of cesspool she had found herself in and reported this unlawful behavior to her superiors. In response, she was demoted to ‘volunteer’ and stripped of her already meager compensation.”
