Since announcing that James Corden was banned from NYC hot spots Balthazar, we were expecting the other shoe to fall off. Owners Keith McNally not just call Late evening organizes a “little man’s instinct” out of nowhere – exile based on many very specific incidents in which Corden is cruel to employees.

However, this time, Becky was just a passerby “going down the street to have a good time with his girlfriend. That street must be Hillhurst because she passed it Little Dom’s, a great little Italian restaurant in the El Lay area, Los Feliz.

“I overheard the busker telling James Corden that Little Dom’s is currently closed.”

“James Corden” yelling in this bus boy, “So much good for me, mate, so much good for me!”
Interestingly, she says that she and her friend have been shouting the phrase diva-tastic to each other ever since! See her full story (below):
