Last night people were blowing up my phone to tell me that Justin Ross Lee and Rich Thomas were seen having drinks at Hillstone on Park Avenue South.
WHAT could these two possibly be talking about? JRL named Thomas the most hated man in nightlife, Noah Tepperberg tried to have JRL fired, JRL filed a police report when Thomas allegedly punched him at 1Oak and stole his camera and then JRL was said to have dropped the charges.
If he’s having drinks with Thomas, does that mean he’s been unbanned from Strategic Group properties? When I reached out to JRL for comment, he gave me this statement: “I’m unable to discuss any terms of an arrangement. Speak to my media representative. Oh, that’s me. Well, I’m still unable to comment.”
When asked if I could look forward to seeing him on the Hamptons Polo Field (where he’s been banned), he said, “Star Jones who?” I think we know what that means.
Note: A quick look at JRL’s facebook page revealed that he has removed “Bridgehampton Polo” from venues where he has lifetime bans.
I guess another nightlife beef bites the dust.
