David Gest forced a VH1 assistant to stick her head in the oven, according to a legal filing by VH1. (If I had to work for Gest, I don't think anyone would have to force me to stick my head in an oven, but I digress...) Gest also had VH1 fly his personal hairstylist in from LA and demanded that the hairstylist be housed near his UES apartment at a cost of $60,000, then refused to appear on camera when he felt that he "was not looking his personal best."
