Well, this week we congregate at Sur, my restaurant in West Hollywood. It is customary to have a food tasting with friends to try out different choices every couple of months. I reassured Brandi that one of my waitresses Scheana would not be serving, as they had an uncomfortable encounter awhile back.
Scheana had an affair, unbeknownst to me, with Brandi's ex husband. . .complicated, but eventually you will see how that comes to fruition. I had a problem with one of my servers, Stassi, who has worked for me for a few years now. The customer in question was somebody I trust implicitly. I had heard from him and two witnesses what had gone down. So, when I discovered Stassi was drinking at the party, I had no interest in her side of the story, simple as that. Stassi continues to work for me, and is best friends with my daughter, so I make constant allowances for her. However I have many people who have worked for me for years. I always listen and support them, but generally the customer is nearly always right. . .It's the way I run my business.
