An eyewitness tells HollywoodLife.com that reports that Anthony Weiner’s wife ‘looked miserable’ at lunch with him on June 25 are incorrect!
Anthony Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin went for brunch at La Bottega in NYC on Saturday and initial reports said Huma looked “miserable” and Anthony seemed “tense”. However, we spoke to another witness that was at Chelsea’s Maritime Hotel restaurant at the same time as Anthony and Huma, and they told us a different story!
“Anthony and Huma were very pleasant to each other and everyone else at the restaurant. Yes, they were on their cell phones, texting occasionally, but for the most part they seemed like they were enjoying themselves,” our source reveals.
So why did one witness say she looked so down? “They left a bad tip, below 15%, and that upset their server and gave off a negative impression. My guess is that the story about his wife looking miserable came from an angry waiter.”
We chatted with someone who works at the restaurant who confirmed the couple came in to eat pizza, and left a poor tip. They agree that the duo seemed to be in good spirits.
