This is what happened in one of the broadcasts, when the cook told the camera to send the diva one of her favorite desserts, the creme Brülée, to her home. That public infidelity earned her a motherly challenge from the chauffeur who scolded her humorously, saying, “Don’t tell the public you’re sending me food because it looks awful”.
