She was ecstatic to learn she got the gig.

Jennifer says the attorney who initially interviewed her accused her of “hiding” her pregnancy during the interview process. At the time of the interview, Jennifer was eight months pregnant, and her baby bump was showing.

The abrupt termination left her with no source of income.

She demanded an explanation. “[H]e told me because I was dishonest with not revealing I was pregnant within my first interview or my second interview,” she told CBS.
