On Thursday night, Mariah "Sparkle" Carey showed up at Graydon Carter's Waverly Inn. But when the paparazzi magically materialized for her, the regulars turned vicious.
She sent her I guess boyfriend in 2-3 times to make sure table was ready (place was half-full so no need) and voila, three paparazzi appeared to snap about five hundred pics in the 20 secs it took for Mariah to walk from curb to restaurant. The best is she sent everyone in ahead of her, and then she stopped before the door, turned to paparazzi and gave them a hundred more pics; she looked really good, wearing a long purple sleeveless gown, she smiled and thanked the paparazzi, and her fellow diners (in garden seating in front). The only time she faltered was when one fellow diner said out loud "We love and support you Britney" to loud laughs. And to make it worse, when the sarcastic diner was told that she wasn't Britney he replied "Oh sorry, Lindsay, good luck with your demons."
