Caterina Fired Because She Is Too Sexy
FANO, ITALY - A Catholic religion teacher claims her good looks have cost her a job at a primary school in central Italy.
Caterina Bonci, described in the local media as a sexy 38-year-old blonde who likes to wear miniskirts, was fired after 14 years spent teaching religion at a state-run school in Fano. Church officials say the fact that she is divorced makes her unsuitable for the job, as the dissolution of marriage contravenes the will of God. Bonci notes that her divorce dates back to 1995 and suspects other motives behind the sacking.
"I have always been attacked by my female colleagues and by the rest of the staff because of my beauty," Bonci was quoted as saying on Tuesday.
