Five People That Had A Worse Weekend Than You: Connecting

5 People That Had A Worse Weekend Than You

Ugh. That’s really all I can say right now. I just watched the season finale of New Girl and while I don’t want to give away any spoilers, let’s just say I am 100% teary right now and wondering if I will ever find love. But at least my weekend was better than these people’s.

Ruby Rose

No one likes having to wait at restaurants. Hell, I’ve got the numbers of like 50 restaurants saved in my phone so I can call ahead to put my name on the list. But if you’re OITNB star Ruby Rose, you definitely don’t like to wait – and you throw food when you don’t get what you want.

Rose was in New Orleans for a DJ gig Friday night when she popped into the Rebellion Bar and Urban Kitchen without a rezzie. Owner Seung Hong recognized her and got her a table within 15 minutes, and that’s when it went bad.

There are two versions of the story: Huang said that it took 40 minutes for the apps to arrive followed by the entrees 10 minutes later. The waiter offered a round of drinks to make up for the delay, but that was too long for Rose and she flipped her shit, throwing fries at the waiter. Rose’s version also ends with the fry toss, but her version says that she waited for 90 minutes with no food, and that the waiter mocked her for being sober after she turned down the round of drinks, leading her to toss her potatoes.

Whichever version is closer to the truth, is throwing French fries the solution? Wasting perfectly good fried deliciousness should never be the answer. Fries are for eating, not throwing. [via The Hollywood Gossip]

This Lady

I pretty much can’t find my way out of a paper bag without my GPS. I blindly follow that lovely lady’s voice wherever she tells me to go. But hopefully if Nellie, as I’ve named her, told me to drive into a lake, I’d like to think that I would have the presence of mind to ignore her, unlike this Canadian woman.

The unidentified woman was driving on Thursday, following her GPS through some fog, which led her down a boat ramp and right into a lake.

Luckily for the driver, she was able to roll down the window and escape the car with no injuries and just a little bit of embarrassment. [via Mashable]

Foxy Brown

If you don’t know who Brown is, the artist also known as Inga DeCarlo Fung Marchand is a rapper with some late 90s hits who has been arrested for assaulting for hotel workers, hitting a neighbor with a blackberry, and attacking two manicurists, among other things. But last week, it was Brown that was the victim of a crime.

Brooklyn’s Don Diva flew to LAX last week to perform in Palm Springs, but when she went to claim her Gucci suitcase, it was MIA. Not only was the pricey suitcase gone, but its expensive contents were missing as well, including “Birkin bags, diamond jewelry and 8 pairs of high-end shoes.”

Despite the heist, the show still went on. No word on why she needed 8 pairs of high-end shoes for one performance, but given that I pack five pairs for a weekend away, who am I to judge? [via TMZ]

These Kids Going To Prom

On the way to my senior prom, the limo broke down. Given that it was a prom season, our replacement limo was from 1982 and smelled of cigar smoke and old beer, but we eventually got to the big dance.

A group of teens from Natick, MA had a similar experience on Friday. On their way to the prom their limo driver, Yasir Sati, noticed smoke coming out of the dashboard. He immediately pulled over and had the kids get out of the car, which was almost immediately engulfed in flames.

Despite the flames, everyone managed to escape the car safely, and the group made it to the prom unscathed after another group headed the dance in a trolley picked them up. No word on how they got to the afterparty. [via CBSBoston]

Jose Bautista

In case you were off the internet yesterday, here’s the punch that made the Rangers/Blue Jays look more like a boxing match:

If you don’t know the back story, a feud between the two teams has been simmering since Bautista flipped his bat after a three-run homer during last year’s AL Division Series. This time, the fracas came after Bautista, pissed about getting hit by an eighth-inning pitch from Matt Bush, slid hard into Rangers’ second baseman Rougned Odor (which may be the most amazing name ever), leading to a fistfight after Odor shoved him.

Joey Bats, in his typical cocky manner, commented after the fight, which resulted in six of the game’s eight ejections.

Not easy to be that arrogant after A.) getting clocked in the face and B.) your team lost the game. [via New York Daily News]
