Dana Gordon, a stand-in actress on "Who's the Boss?" filed a $5 million suit Monday against its star, Tony Danza, claiming she was fired for breaking off a relationship with Danza's brother, Matty. Gordon, 23, said in the Los Angeles Superior Court suit that Matty Danza--a frequent visitor to the show's set--harassed and physically abused her after she stopped dating him in December, 1986.

Also named in the suit: producers John Anderson, Martin Cohan and Blake Hunter and Embassy Communications.
