Did Jay Ellis Just Low-Key Drag Paris Hilton For Being A "Monster" To Him Back In The Day?
"This woman would come in and was just an absolute monster. A monster."
Imagine meeting Insecure's Jay Ellis. You'd be nothing but sweet and swooned, right? I MEAN:
Well, turns out there's a ~certain~ starlet in Hollywood who wasn't exactly the nicest to Jay when they met back in the day...
In a recent GQ article, Jay opened up about his pre-fame days when he sold women's shoes and revealed his worst customer was a celebrity starlet who sounds an awful like, well...
Who was your worst customer?
A celebrity. A starlet. Who did a lot of reality TV. Who is not as popular as she was, but is still popular. She’s an heir to a family fortune. Her last name is the name of the company.
A starlet? Who did a lot of reality TV? Who is not as popular as she was, but is still popular? She’s an heir to a family fortune? Her last name is the name of the company? Hmm...
So what did this "starlet" do? Well, apparently she was an "absolute monster" to the entire staff whenever she'd come in:
This woman would come in and was just an absolute monster. A monster. To every single one of us who were in there, every single time. She would just throw shoes on the floor, and then you had to put shoes on her.
But Jay did mention there were benefits to having her as a customer:
I will say this: She would order, like, ten or twelve shoes at a time, so it was a great commission check, but the amount of work you had to go through to get that...you might as well have just given your soul to the devil. It would’ve been an easier exchange. You’d know what you were getting up front.
