Usually a good tip from a celebrity customer is something that would earn a server a round of applause from their manager. But in this case, that good celebrity tip got a waitress fired.
The Sun says that a 21-year-old server and aspiring actress named Viviana Ross was fired from her job at the Chiltern Firehouse in London after she hooked up with 40-year-old Orlando Bloom. After her shift on Friday night, Viviana bumped into Orlando – who she had been serving all week – outside the bar. He reportedly asked her to come up to his room for a drink. She said yes, and wouldn’t you know it, drinking turned into banging.
The next morning, Orlando left for an interview and Viviana stuck around in his room. The hotel’s general manager entered Orlando’s room and caught Viviana naked in his bed. They asked if she worked there, which she admitted she did. The manager left, and about an hour later Viviana received a text informing her she had been fired after two months of employment for “fraternizing with clients.”
The Sun’s source claims Viviana is “hurt,” especially since she fucked Orlando while she was off the clock. Not only did Viviana find herself without a job, she also didn’t have a way to contact Orlando. Orlando could have tried to reach her on social media, since she seems pretty active there.
But he didn’t have to. Sources tell Page Six that Orlando called up the Chiltern Firehouse and asked for former-employee Viviana’s phone number so he could apologize. The source goes on to say that Viviana doesn’t regret hooking up with Orlando. Anyone who has seen Orlando Bloom’s naked paddleboarding pics knows that’s the truth.
This is a good lesson for servers at the Chiltern Firehouse. Don’t sleep with clients or you will get fired. But in the event you do want to get fired, you now know the most-fun way to possibly go about burning that bridge.
