New details are emerging about Jodie Fisher, the woman who claimed she was sexually harassed by Hewlett-Packard’s now-ex-CEO Mark Hurd. Fisher has left the West Coast for a job with her mom’s company in New Jersey, having reached a settlement agreement for an undisclosed sum of money with Hurd before he stepped down. Now an employee of TeleSearch Staffing Solutions, Fisher gave up on her dream of becoming an actress last year after working for a spell as a freelance marketer for H-P, her mother Polly McDonald said. McDonald said her daughter had done the right thing, despite the bad press. A friend agreed: "She's not a gold digger… It takes a lot of courage to go through what you need to go through with something like that." Fisher had limited success in Hollywood, posing for Playboy in 1980 and starring in a 1992 erotic thriller called Intimate Obsession. She appeared on NBC’s reality TV show Age of Love two years ago at 46, and then got a small speaking role in a yet-to-be-distributed sequel to Easy Rider. Fisher divorced her artist husband in 2003 and has a 12-year-old son.
