Last week, ARETHA FRANKLIN hit up a Johnny Rockets in the Niagara Falls area after a gig. And she almost engaged in FISTICUFFS with one of the employees. Here's what happened:
Aretha ordered a meal TO GO . . . but apparently, she was too hungry to wait, and once she got her food, she sat down at one of the tables inside to eat it. A server SCOLDED Aretha for doing that, telling her she wasn't allowed to eat takeout inside. Aretha says the worker was, quote, "very rude, unprofessional and nasty." She stormed out without finishing her meal. The owner of that Johnny Rockets says he's sorry, and called the worker a, quote, "new and very young employee." Apparently, the employee won't be fired, but was REMINDED about the "takeout policies." Aretha is moving on. She says, quote, "Over the years I have always enjoyed a burger and cherry Coke. This experience will not stop my enjoyment of burgers and cherry Cokes, and talking to the classy and friendly people at Johnny Rockets."
Last year, CHUBBY CHECKER, the man behind "The Twist", sued the makers of a mobile app called "The Chubby Checker," which claimed to estimate the size of a man's JUNK based on his shoe size. He was asking for $500 MILLION in damages. Now, Chubby has settled out of court. The terms haven't been disclosed, but the app hasn't been available for purchase since the lawsuit was filed.
It's probably a safe bet that Chubby didn't get anywhere NEAR $500 million . . . because the app only sold 84 downloads in the two years it was available, at 99-cents a pop. So in other words, this was an $83.16 operation.
Rihanna got a bit of unwanted attention this weekend in the form of a homeless man who stalked and threatened the "Diamonds" singer. The 53-year-old man, identified as Kevin McGlynn, reportedly turned up at Rih Rih's multi-million dollar apartment twice on July 8 and again on July 11 to deliver threatening letters, the New York Daily Newsreports. Cops found his name when he dropped his benefits card with his name and address on it. McGlynn has been arrrested on charges of stalking and harassment. According to the criminal complaint, McGlynn repeatedly called Rihanna a "bi**h" and threatened to "bum rush" her apartment. He also posted several letters to her California residence.
Also, The Bachelorette finale is tonight and Andy is down to just Nick and Josh. WHO ON EARTH WILL SHE CHOOSE?? Honestly, I don't care. I won't be watching. I will, however, be watching Running Wild with Bear Grylls. WHY, YOU ASK? Because it's the episode with ZAC EFFRON and he'll be shirtless, alot. Enough said. The End.
