While filming for the sixth season of Real Housewives of New Jersey is underway, former cast member Caroline Manzo's husband, Albert, is caught up in a legal battle.

According to New York Daily News, Albert is being sued by a waitress, Lanise Jackson, 36, who worked for them at The Brownstone House in Paterson, N.J., claiming that she experienced unfair pay as well as racial, sexual and ethnic discrimination.

She accuses Albert and his brother, Tommy, of calling her and her co-workers "spics" and other explicit and vulgar names.

Jackson worked for The Brownstone House from October 2011 to April 2012 as well as September to November 2013. When her lawyer, Mark Mulick was asked why should she subject herself to the conditions again, he said she had nowhere else to go and had a family to take care of.

In the court documents, Jackson points out an incident when Tommy yelled, "Are you blind? What are you, Chinese? Open your eyes."

She also said the environment of the business was unhealthy and filled with roaches. Aside from the discrimination and dangerous working conditions, Jackson alleges that it was not uncommon for her to work more than 40 hours a week. However, she was never paid time and a half for her overtime.

Albert maintains that Jackson is only suing him because of the popularity of Real Housewives of New Jersey.

"I've never spoken to any employee in that manner. This is the most insane thing I've ever dealt with...It's almost like she has nothing better to do. I can't wait for this to go to court. She'll be perjuring herself."
