Sometimes a famous face and a smile isn't enough to get you the special treatment you think you deserve. Just ask Raven-Symoné.
"The View" co-host recently found herself without a table at Sushi Roxx's grand opening in New York City, as it was fully booked. Her efforts to chat up "Orange Is The New Black" actress Samira Wiley, who actually had a reservation, failed and Raven was left out in the cold.
Confidenti@l explains how it all reportedly went down:
"'Samira was sitting at the bar not far from the entrance and Raven, who showed up with no reservation, saw her and tried to make friends with her group,' says our spy. 'Raven had been talking to the hostess, who had no table for her, so she tried to sit with Samira. Raven just couldn’t get a table.'
Our amused spywitness says that Raven tried for some time to 'befriend' Wiley, saying, 'We should all sit together,' before Wiley shut her down, gesturing to the hostess to seat Raven and her group elsewhere.
'When the reservationist tried to move things around to seat them next to each other, Samira shook her head and made a 'no' motion that was very clear to the hostess. Raven didn’t sit with her or get a table,' says our source. 'She left with her three friends without eating.'"
Next time, maybe call first and put in a reservation? Just a suggestion.
