Bosses on TV host Rachael Ray's show are facing legal action from a former employee who claims he was forced out of his job because he suffered from an eating disorder.

Aaron Ferguson--who suffers from anorexia--has filed papers at Manhattan's Supreme Court accusing bosses on Ray's self-titled show of exhibiting "hostile behavior" and making "vile" comments about him.

Ferguson started working for the CBS production company in July 2007 and claims he was forced to quit because of his supervisors' behavior.

His lawyer, William H. Kaiser, says, "The things that were said in front of my client were hurtful, and once they knew he had a problem with it they should have stopped."

Three employees of Rachael Ray have been named in the suit, although the star herself is not stated as a defendant.
