Apparently there is something long enough to keep Diana Ross from getting to lunch…
…and it’s the wait.
Mz. Ross met her match with La Scala in Beverly Hills, and she did not come out of the battle looking like the bigger person.
The Supremes superstar threw a hissy fit after being denied an immediate table since the rest of her dining party hadn’t arrived. She made it there before her daughter, so Diana was left waiting, but gurlfriend wasn’t putting up with that for long!
The original diva went into the restaurant anyway and sat in a corner…like any mature adult.
In her defense, did they know she was THE Diana Ross?!
Whether they did or not, La Scala didn’t back down as the restaurant manager spoke with her about their seating policy and how she still wasn’t going to be served until she waited and was properly seated.
But she never was served because once her daughter arrived they both left to apparently dine elsewhere.
While she was busy chowing down, the owner of La Scala, Gigi Leon, released a statement letting Diana know she is welcomed back but will still have to wait like the rest of us non-fierce people. Gigi commented:
“I'm sorry that Miss Ross had a problem with that and she feels that the rules didn't apply to her. Our policy is that we don't sit incomplete parties. If people jump the line, our policy is we don't serve them, and she was told that. We treat everyone the same whether you're famous or not. We love having her as a customer. We'd be happy to have her back.”
A place that doesn’t care who you are??
A rare gem in El Lay!
