'American Idol' hopeful Devyn Rush loses diner job
One American Idol contestant is betting it all on her trip to Hollywood: Devyn Rush has reportedly been canned from her job at a New York restaurant after heading out west to pursue her singing dream. Why is this news? It's a waitressing job in the Big Apple -- rumor has it there are more of them.
TMZ says the management at Ellen's Stardust Diner in NYC told Devyn she was being "let go" because her run on the Fox show came during their busy season. Her job as a singing waitress couldn't be left unfilled, so they opened the spot for hiring. Why is that even news?
Of course, the diner's rep (they have a rep?) told the site the issue is in "limbo" and they haven't decided what to do just yet. That means they're waiting to see if she gets bounced right away, or hangs on long enough to warrant keeping her on as a staff oddity to draw crowds for a couple weeks.
