Bachelorette Producer Fired For Sexually Harassing Craig Robinson

Former Bachelorette contestant Craig Robinson was allegedly sexually harassed by a married female producer of the show, and as such, was unceremoniously dispatched from the cast of ABC's Bachelor Pad this summer.

The producer was fired.

Robinson wooed Ali Fedotowsky on the sixth season of The Bachelorette, but claims he was wooed - hard core - by Karri-Leigh Mastrangelo.

The Bachelorette supervising producer was also leading efforts to pick the Bachelor Pad cast for the second season, and Craig was a contender.

Robinson, a 27-year-old lawyer from Philadelphia, Pa., initially tolerated Mastrangelo's advances but eventually accused her of sexual harassment.

"It was sort of like sexual harassment, but I realized if I rejected her, I'd probably ruin my chances to be on Bachelor Pad," Robinson told Star.

Hey, at least he's honest about it.

Robinson told Star that Mastrangelo initially called him to repeatedly discuss harmless matters concerning the Bachelor Pad selection process, but eventually she took their level of communication to "an alarming level."

"She kind of lost her mind. She sent me a lot of messages saying that she was in love with me and could see a future between us," he claims.

"She texted me several photos, a couple in really racy lingerie - pushing her boobs up - and one in a dominatrix outfit," Robinson said.

Robinson suggested he had little interest in the former producer, but admitted giving into her advances during one encounter in March:

"I came to LA to visit a friend and she called me. I ended up making out with her, but she wanted more. I wasn't going to do that."

According to Robinson, his Bachelor Pad casting went from "a done deal" to dead in the water after he rejected Mastrangelo's overture.

More significantly, Mastrangelo's marriage also reportedly fell apart when her husband became suspicious of her interactions with Craig.

Mastrangelo admitted she had an "inappropriate relationship" with Robinson and was "let go" from her job as a result. Pretty bad.
