A former New York City restaurant hostess who has worked in some of Manhattan’s trendiest eateries is sharing her candid thoughts on celebrities she has encountered.
Julia Carolan, 23, only just joined TikTok — but a video she posted two days ago has already been watched 6.1 million times, thanks to its fun celebrity gossip.
Julia said that while ‘working as a hostess in a fancy Manhattan restaurant,’ she came face-to-face with plenty of stars — and while Gigi and Bella Hadid were ‘so nice’, Kylie Jenner was a shockingly cheap tipper.
‘These two are literally so nice, I cannot say enough things about them. They’re super polite and friendly with staff, which unfortunately, is rare for celebrities,’ she said
Julia doesn’t specify which Manhattan restaurant she is referring to in the video, but while she attended college, she worked for 10 months as a hostess at one of TAO Group’s restaurants, which include TAO, LAVO, and Beauty & Essex, among quite a few other hot spots.
She followed that with another 10 months at Nobu Downtown.
In her celebrity-rating video — which she promises is the the first of several — she rated Gigi and Bella Hadid 10/10.
‘These two are literally so nice, I cannot say enough things about them. They’re super polite and friendly with staff, which, unfortunately, is rare for celebrities,’ she says.
Cameron Dallas, however, only rated 4/10 for being demanding and entitled.
‘I kind of had a bad experience with him. Him and his friend called after we were closed and insisted on a table — and kind of pulled a ‘do you know who I am’ moment,’ she says. ‘He was rude.’
Hailey Bieber scored even worse, rating just 3.5/10 based on multiple encounters.
‘This is gonna be controversial,’ Julia says. ‘I’ve met her a handful of times and every time she was not nice.
‘I really wanna like her, but I have to give her a 3.5 out of 10. Sorry,’ she says with a cringe.
‘She was fine but she tipped $20 on a $500 dinner bill. Do with that information what you will,’ Julia said
Worst of all, though, was ‘billionaire’ Kylie Jenner — who, despite reportedly raking in boatloads of cash, was a shockingly bad tipper.
‘She was fine but she tipped $20 on a $500 dinner bill. Do with that information what you will,’ Julia says, rating Kylie 2/10.
Julia, who has yet to post part two, likely encountered many more stars during her time as a hostess.
Nobu Downtown counts Beyonce, Rihanna, the Kardashians, and many more as fans, while TAO Group fans include Sofia Vergara, Katie Holmes, Naomi Campbell, also the Kardashians, and many more.
