Debrahlee Lorenzana, who claimed she was fired by a New York City Citibank branch for being too good-looking, has beefed up her legal team.

Lorenzana has hired Gloria Allred, a high-powered feminist lawyer who also represents alleged Tiger Woods mistress Rachel Uchitel, RadarOnline reports. In a statement, Allred told RadarOnline that Lorenzana "has been unfairly and viciously attacked in the media for having the courage to step forward and take a stand against blatant sex discrimination and retaliation."

Last week, according to the New York Post, Lorenzana, 33, returned to her job at a New York City JPMorgan office. Her return, reports the New York Daily News , "came days after her [former] lawyer claimed Chase was threatening to fire her for speaking out against Citi."

Lorenzana has certainly not been shy about making media appearances. She appeared on the "Today Show" -- and in this slideshow by the Village Voice, which was the first media outlet to report on Lorenzana's case.

In a 2003 Discovery Channel program, Lorenzana -- when she was 26 -- detailed her second breast surgery, and even said she wanted to look like a "Playboy Playmate." "I love plastic surgery," Lorenzana said. Watch a clip a of the program here. (WARNING: graphic images.)
