Diana Ross, the legendary Supremes frontwoman, allegedly made a scene last Thursday at a Beverly Hills restaurant after refusing to wait to be seated.

According to the New York Post, upon arriving at Italian restaurant La Scala for lunch, Ross was told she would have to wait to be seated until her daughter arrived.

Ross reportedly refused, and walked to a booth and sat down.  Management informed the diva of their seating policy: Incomplete parties will not be seated unless a reservation has been made.  She was also told that if “she cut the line and sat before her daughter arrived, she would not be served.”

See what happened once Diana’s daughter arrived on The Grio.

    So instead of having Diana Ross singing your praises, they’d rather not have her as a customer at all? They say they love having her as a customer. I think they just lost one (well two, including her daughter).

      No they haven’t. She did something similar at the same restaurant in 2009… and she came back. It’s a great Italian restaurant in Beverly Hills, they have more famous and more wealthy clientele than Ms. Ross. I’m sure they are not worried about the press coverage… ever heard of “no press is bad press” They are full all the time and will continue to be.

        sorry, I meant to say “there is no such thing as bad press”

    The headline makes it sound like she was discriminated against. She was being a diva as usual. She needs to behave herself.

    • Only one side of the story has been told. Your be willing to condemn Miss Ross out of hand shows you have a judgement about her as a person before this incident. She should have been seated period.

        If it is policy that only complete parties are seated then she should follow policy like everyone else. Period. There are good reasons for this, such as when there is a reservation for 6 and only 4 show up. They can then seat you at a different (smaller) table and give the larger one to an actual group of 6. Whatever her side of the story was, if it is anything other than her having a medical condition that demanded that she should have been seated ahead of schedule, she’s in the wrong. Restaurants shouldn’t change policy just because you are famous and/or rich.
