In case you don’t know who Lisa Falcone is, she’s the crazy wife of Philip Falcone who is a billionaire hedge fund person, and once pissed off the richies of the Hamptons by letting her horses shit all over the beach. Page Six is writing about her again, because she allegedly defended using the n-word by saying she’s allowed to since she’s friends with Alicia Keys. There goes Alicia Keys deleting the name “Crazy Billionaire Bitch” from her iPhone contacts.
The Falcones have been sued by their former personal chef Brian Villanueva for discrimination and violation of New York labor laws. According to the lawsuit, on July 13, Brian brought his girlfriend, who is black, to the Falcones’ Hamptons home to help him out at a party. Alicia and her husband, Swizz Beatz were also there. The next morning after the event, Lisa commented on how “articulate” the girlfriend was. Every black person on Earth knows that means: “Wow, why aren’t you what I consider “ghetto”?” Lisa said:
“Your girlfriend speaks very well. She seems educated. I would describe her as a chocolate-covered marshmallow.”
Brian was “visibly offended” but Lisa kept on for some ungodly reason:
“Do you use the word “n*gger” at home with your girlfriend?”
…Why… would he? The lawsuit says:
“Defendant Lisa Falcone noticed the shocked and offended expression on Plaintiff’s face, however, rather than apologize, she said defensively, “I’m Puerto Rican and grew up in Spanish Harlem so I can speak like that.”“
Brian asked Lisa to explain what she meant, and she decided to bring up Alicia and Swizz saying they were not as well-spoken:
“I meant she speaks really eloquently. Alicia [Keys] doesn’t speak that way. She didn’t have an education and was just discovered by Clive Davis when she was fifteen years old. Swizz [Beatz] definitely doesn’t speak that way either.”
Brian quit that day. He brought the Falcones two pizzas on the beach and told them he was leaving because of the racism, but Lisa once again brought up Alicia and Swizz:
“Rather than accepting Plaintiff’s resignation, Defendant Lisa Falcone asked Plaintiff not to resign and stated “talk to my black friends” (seemingly referring to Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz–both of whom were at the beach with the Falcones at that time), and emphasized “they will tell you that I am not racist.”“
Brian is suing for $4,230.76 in unpaid wages.
Apparently Philip told Brian he would only pay him if he and his girlfriend signed non-disclosure agreements. They did not. Reps for Alicia, Swizz did not comment, Philip declined comment and Lisa did not return Page Six’s messages.
So it seems like you can add “cheap” to the list of things that Lisa Falcone seems to be. Because all she had to do was pay Brian the $4,230, and she probably wouldn’t have been painted as a racist in Page Six. Not only is she probably down two “black friends,” but she’s probably down two famous friends too. Well, I guess she can always try to befriend Gina Rodriguez.
