Now, we know how touchy hotels can get over their celebrity guests and their privacy. Once, we were interviewing the Chef Concierge at Waldorf-Astoria, and when we asked which celebrities he'd gotten to meet, he became so tight-lipped, we thought our interview was practically over.
But something about this Aniston incident sounds a little fishy to us. After all, as TMZ reports, Siegler never actually said anything defamatory about Aniston—he only confirmed what the guests had already seen:
"Terry says the guests asked if he had seen Aniston, and he replied yes, telling them Aniston is 'very sweet and much more petite than I thought.'
It's part of his job to engage guests and be friendly -- claiming, 'They brought [Jennifer] up first ... Was I supposed to deny it?'"
As of now, no legal action has been taken, though Siegler is "unsure" whether he'll sue Four Seasons for wrongful termination. In the meantime, Aniston has managed to nearly ruin the life of a poor, unsuspecting hotel employee just by being a guest at his hotel. If that isn't some sort of commentary on today's over-hyped media-driven celebrity culture, we don't know what is.
