Timmy the Tumor: Charlie Murphy in his Esquire Magazine Interview:From Esquire Magazine:I was sitting in this mogul's house. My brother was there, and they were having lunch. It was real nice, going down to the beach and everything. And then we see this woman walking on the beach. It's Diana Ross. I ran down there and got her. So now we're sitting in this room. Diana Ross is sitting with Eddie in the mogul's section. I'm with some common folk on the other side. We're talking, having fun. One guy happens to use thef word. And Diana Ross comes all the way across the room and says, "Excuse me, I don't know who you gentlemen are, but I don't tolerate any profanity in my vicinity." Now, we're not at Diana Ross's house. We're in another house. We don't work for her. That's what we're all thinking. And one guy goes, "fark you, Diana." She was stunned. Her face, it looked like pieces of it were falling off. No one was sorry. Because what sticks out in this story for me is: Why are people kissing Diana Ross's ass? Is she God? No. She sang on some records and did a good job! I give her her props. But that doesn't make you more of an adult than me. That doesn't give you any more rights than me. Being your fan is optional. If you forget that, because everybody's been blowing sunshine up your ass, you're putting yourself in the position to take a fall. That's the moral of the story. Always stay humble. It's the only way you can't get humiliated.
cryinoutloud: Timmy the Tumor: In other news, Aretha Franklin showed up to a restaurant she had reservations to, and got angry when they told her that she wasn't eligible for the all you can eat buffet.Isn't she dying of cancer? I hope she dies in the next 15 minutes, so you can feel bad.
theflatline: quickdraw: Timmy the Tumor: ExperianScaresCthulhu: They should have treated her like their auntie or grandmother, no matter how arrogant she was. Not act like doormats, no, but have some respect even if they are going to continue to use cuss words in her presence.wow, you really miss the pointWhich was - what exactly? That the writer who didnt understand basic manners is an asshole?Diana Ross has long been known to be a biatch of gigantic proportions. Like telling her staff they were not allowed to make eye contact with her and having them call her Lady Diana.As for as the curse word, well when you are hanging out with the Murphy brothers and their entourage, an f-bomb is the least of your worries.I am sure she used some choice words herself.The restaurant was the rules they have set, and were being considerate to everyone else.Diva can = biatch and it is nothing to be proud of here or aspire to.
