Highway harridan - Rajeev Masand
I found this week's blind item by Rajeev Masand quite funny ;-). Read on!
It’s true what they say about treating your staff well. This popular talk show hostess and former actress reportedly got a taste of her own medicine recently while heading back to her home in south Mumbai from an event in the suburbs. Famously moody, and notorious for her ‘high maintenance’ behaviour, especially with her staff, the chat show hostess was being accompanied by her sister and a male journalist friend in her car, when the vehicle broke down while on the Bandra-Worli Sea Link.
Even as her distraught chauffeur tinkered around with the engine to fix the problem, the lady in question allegedly lost her temper and began bellowing at the by-now-harrowed driver. Then she is believed to have got into an argument with her sister. And in the midst of barking at each other, the two ladies also kept yelling at the driver, who was simply too nervous to get the car working again under such pressure. Exasperated, he’s believed to have handed over the keys to his boss and quit his job on the spot. The car and the three passengers remained stranded on the Sea Link.
Dumbstruck at his betrayal, and feeling helpless about being trapped in a place where help is hard to come by, the chat show hostess apparently screamed imprecations at the driver even as he walked off calmly. And within minutes, unable to take any more of their bickering, their male friend is believed to have hopped out of the car, abandoning both ladies, who looked on in disbelief. He reportedly made a long trek to the end of the Sea Link and took a taxi home, but not before pointing another taxi in their direction to give the ladies a ride back home.
