Miranda Lambert was ‘flipping plates’ according to 911 calls from the steakhouse

Academy of Country Music Awards 2017 - Arrivals

Last week, one of the weirdest and messiest gossip stories involved Miranda Lambert. The incident was described as Miranda, her mom, and a then-unidentified “male friend” getting into some kind of physical confrontation with an older couple. All of this went down at a Nashville steakhouse. And at some point, Miranda reportedly went over to the older couple’s table and dumped her salad on the wife. Trashy. I sort of believe that Miranda released the news of her surprise wedding to deflect from this trashy steakhouse story, just as I believe that the “male friend” who was dining with Miranda was probably her new husband, an NYPD police officer. Well, I’m not going to let this steakhouse beef die! Steakhouse employees called 911 about the altercation, and it’s amazing:

New details have emerged about Miranda Lambert‘s alleged restaurant dispute in Tennessee Sunday. In 911 calls obtained by TMZ and The Tennessean, a female employee at Nashville’s Stoney River Steakhouse restaurant can be heard telling a Metro dispatcher: “I have two guests about to get into a fistfight… Miranda Lambert….She just ran out the door, and got into it with another couple right here… I’m sorry my manager just said call 911,” the employee explained.

In a separate 911 call, a dispatcher can be heard asking what sparked the altercation.

“Something happened in the restaurant between these two gentlemen, and another gentleman walked up to her table and started cussing him out,” the employee told the dispatcher. “This is the third time they’ve gotten into it, and now Miranda is trying to hit people, and she’s flipping plates on them.”

In another call, a frantic employee pleaded with the 911 dispatcher for help.

“There’s an altercation between two guests, and it’s about to get physical,” the employee explained. “Our managers are trying to hold them back but we can’t.” The woman described the two people as a male in his 30s and a male in his 60s. According to a TMZ report released on Wednesday, Lambert was eating with her mother and a family friend when the fight broke out.

I think it’s probably likely that the whole thing was instigated between the men, which was what was initially claimed too – like, the men had words with each other in the men’s room, and everything spilled out into the main restaurant. That being said, it does not sound like Miranda was doing much to keep calm, or keep anyone else calm. As soon as her drama-alert pinged, Miranda threw herself into the situation and began tossing salads right and left. Toss salads first, ask questions later. I also think that if Miranda’s “male friend” was her new police officer husband that this story gets even shadier – if it was the new husband, he was clearly not “on duty” in Nashville. But I wonder if he tried to pull some sh-t with his badge or something.

    First of all: Steakhouse Beef is still making me cackle.

    Secondly: What happened to her that she feels so entitled to go out into the world and inflict so much hurt on others? Women who knowingly cheat with a married man have also insulted the partner. She didn’t break the vow, but she contributed to another person’s pain. She seems shameless about the hurt she inflicts, it is like a blood sport for her, bag ‘em and tag ‘em.

    • Steff says:

      I do not understand the fuss over this woman. Musically, personally, etc…

      • Nancy says:

        I just do quick drive bys through here these days….but I have to comment. This woman knowing full well that Blake Sheldon was married, pursued him and married him. Of course, he doesn’t get any glory either. I think she still pines over Blake and is jealous of Gwen, that is my hope for her karma. Now this is a little mean, but so is she. I have kids galore in my home so when I look at Miranda, why do I start humming I’m a Little Teapot! Haha. Short and stout. Just a song folks!

      • velourazure says:

        She’s messy.

    • Spicecake38 says:

      Miranda is so classless I just can’t even.
      Steakhouse beef🤣I had to re read that because I wasn’t sure I read it right,very funny!
      Nancy,hope you and your house full of children are healthy and happy,and staying warm in this miserable weather.
      This is the story that just keeps on giving-WHY would you get into an altercation when having dinner with your male acquaintance (husband)and your mom,I mean my husband/daughter/grandmother,would be mortified!Who does this,and to think it got so bad 911 had to be called…

    • CA Family Code says:

      Everyone Romaine calm…hmmm lettuce peas reflect on this romaince…of course we’re not root-ing for them and in fact many do not carrot all. Some think she needs her ass beet and I’m like “Oh kale no!” I’ve bean thinking she can’t leaf these married guys alone. Her modis operandi is not berry a-pealing. Miranda sees a married man and says “Olive you from my head tomatoes–I have so mushroom in my heart for you–we’d make a hellava pear.” Can’t wait for news of divorce to leek.

    • jules says:

      I wonder why he’s marrying her. Could it be…money? This girl is trash and by the sounds of it, so is he. Here’s to weddings that last under a year.

  2. BigGirl says:

    Was the wedding announcement meant to distract because folks (significant others..baby momma) did not know ML and hubby were married? This is weird and definitely not newlywed behavior.

  3. Rapunzel says:

    Obviously if the husband was there, him being a Cop got them a pass, as most officers watch out for each other. This is just gross on so many levels. And juvenile.

  4. Lisa says:

    She is juvenile so of course she would escalate things instead of calming the situation down.

  5. minx says:

    I was hoping there would be follow up on the salad tossing.

  6. RBC says:

    Whenever I read about this incident and the words “ tossing salad” come up, I start to giggle. Can’t help it

    • boredblond says:

      ‘Tossing plates’ made me smile..now ‘throwing pies’ would’ve been so much more effective. I wonder what a perfect stranger could say in the restroom to provoke such ridiculous behavior?

      • Spicecake38 says:

        IKR,WHAT did someone totally random say (and in the men’s bathroom)to spark such behavior,I mean 🤣🤣🤣,why would you care,and if it’s that bad leave.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        It sounds like the older guy came to her table cussing 3 times? Salad throwing isn’t the answer of course, but come on boys! 60 year olds shouldn’t be going to random tables and shouting at people. Thank god they weren’t armed.

    • Sparkly says:

      I’m just as juvenile. ‘Tossing salads right and left. Toss salads first, ask questions later’ had me rolling. I hope that joke follows her around for life.

    • Nicegirl says:

      IKR? ‘Tossing salads left and right’ has got me cackling!! I can’t even 😆

  7. Carobell says:

    What I don’t understand is, doesn’t Miranda have girlfriends? Someone to say, hey, not a good look marrying a rando who just had a baby with someone else? And if she has no friends, she has to have management right? Is she so popular that her reputation can survive this?

    • minx says:

      I would be surprised if she had girlfriends. And I think she does what she wants and her management and PR get to clean up her messes. She just doesn’t care.

      • Gutterflower says:

        Who would trust her?!

      • K-Peace says:

        I remember about a year ago right around the time Miranda was getting publicity for wrecking Evan & Stacy Felker’s marriage, she posted a photo of herself in front of a mirror that she had written “I do this thing called whatever I want.” on with lipstick. I think that tells us exactly how she views life & tells us all we need to know about her. She’s an entitled narcissistic jackass.

        And the part of the Steakhouse Beef story that I’m most interested in is the part where it says Miranda is hitting people. So she’s a violent out-of-control whacko as well.

    • Valois says:

      Im willing to bet she‘s the type of woman who claims she doesn’t get along with other women because they‘re so bitchy and that’s why she only has guy friends.

    • Tanguerita says:

      Would you want to be girlfriends with this c–t?Miranda is a piece of trash that won’t wait till you are out of room before she jumps your boyfriend.

    • Millenial says:

      I think she does have girlfriends – I know she gets along pretty well with the other two Annies (Ashley Monroe and Angelena Pressley) and they both seem fairly sweet/normal so I don’t know. I don’t get it at all.

    • isabelle says:

      The way she disrespects other women, highly doubt she has real close girlfriends.

  8. Lightpurple says:

    Some NYPD Internal Affairs investigator is going to get a trip to Nashville out of all this.

  9. Simone says:

    Who is this person? I only ever see her on this site, and she is amazing lol. Utterly shameless trash. She has zero inhibitions. Imagine dumping your salad over someone’s head. Incredible.

    • Dee says:

      Right?! No idea who she is or what she does other than she shows up on this site looking like the actress from Good Place and humping random married men all the time. What a joke of a person! I’m going to bet a Steakhouse Beef Salad that she’s a Trump-land fav.

      • brutalethyl says:

        Trump voter here and nope, can’t stand this one. I hope she gets charged with assault and the internal affairs people at her new hubby’s job come after him. Then with luck, they’ll all go to civil court and Miranda can pay out an assload of money to the people she assaulted.

  10. AnnaKist says:

    ‘’Steakhouse beef’… 😂😂

    Okay, the only celebrity gossip I ever got is on this site, so I’m not familiar with a lot of US celebs. Is this the ex-wife of Gwen Stefani’s fella? Behaving like this, in public or at yours or anyone else’s home, is just plain C.O.M.M.O.N. What is wrong with, not just her, but the lot of them? Whether Mystry Man was her cop or not, could he not have apologised and led this banshee away, and averted all this drama? It doesn’t matter how rich or famous you are, pet, carrying on like this just makes you look trashy, not tough, not assertive, just really, really bad. And to be so disrespectful to the restaurant staff and other diners… well, it really tells you all you need to know about her character. Is she a tRumpster?

    • Christin says:

      Yes, her ex-husband (which was several flings ago) now dates Gwen. He allegedly left his first wife for this one, so karma came back to him when their marriage imploded.

      • AnnaKist says:

        Ah, thanks for the confirmation, Christin. She gets about, hey… wondering how long this marriage will take to implode, because I doubt it will fizzle out. She seems like a proper bïtch.

      • Christin says:

        My guess is six to eight months, with official confirmation much later. Unless they have a public brawl, because full-on implosion does seem the only way she rolls.

  11. Christin says:

    If she acts this way in public, imagine what it’s like in private. A random comment about phone use should ever have escalated like this.

    I would not be surprised if she posed in a wedding dress this past week to have another story for distraction. The timeline of the baby, this alleged late January wedding and the “lettuce fight” incident is very strange.

    • Megan says:

      The person who made the comment escalated the situation by going over to Miranda’s table and cussing them out. I would have a big issue with a stranger yelling eff words at my mom while she was eating her lunch.

      • Yup, Me says:

        I agree, Miranda does seem like a hot mess of a person but if some old man came over to my table and was swearing at my mother (or me or my son or my husband or my friend), he’d get a lot more than a salad hurled at him.

      • Christin says:

        Have any eyewitnesses confirmed that scenario, or was this possibly a little PR “addition” after the initial story?

        I guess the other patrons received a show with dinner that evening. It had to be stressful for the staff to be in the middle of a childish argument among these adults.

      • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

        I know, right Yup? Shred the cheap lettuce, hurl a filet mignon like a hockey puck.

  12. Alexandria says:

    She must have been in the middle of a high steaks negotiation and decided not to beet around the bush. In a (medium) rare public move, she chose to give the other party a proper dressing down for not meating her halfway. Then she proceeded to leaf even though she knew the press would be grilling her for more details.

  13. Chef Grace says:

    She done got her herself a cop for backup.
    She is invincible now.
    Let the next course tossing begin.

    • DIRTNAP says:

      Yep, @CHEF GRACE, I think the fact that he is a cop is part of why she sealed the deal with this one (If, in fact, they really did get legally married and it’s not just a PR coupling to deflect from SaladGate). She previously tried to seduce Eric Church from his wife and, when that proved unsuccessful, she married Blake Shelton and used their combined clout to try and shut down Eric’s career prospects. Think of how much bad behavior she can get away with married to a cop. She uses men for publicity, narcissistic supply, revenge and protection. This one will be no different.

    • BeanieBean says:

      A not very good cop if he’s going to lose his cool when a stranger comments on his cell phone usage (I think that was the original problem).

  14. KP says:

    I’m wondering if it wasn’t a comment about Miranda’s dating record that was made. I bet people in Nashville are up on her dating streak and it wouldn’t surprise me if some old dude made a comment about it. Which I mean we can all see the record is… not great, but it’s not cool for people to publicly comment about so I can see how that could trigger a fight.

  17. bobafelty says:

    Her husband is as trashy as she is, so this crazy couple just might make it! Apparently Miranda’s new husband was engaged up until July 2018, when his then-fiance (not Miranda, a different woman) discovered he had knocked up his side piece. His child was just born in November 2018. Now it’s February 2019 and he’s married to Miranda.

    • Lisa says:

      His ex fiance is lucky to be out of that mess with no ties to any of these dreadful people again.

    • wha1ever says:

      Yikes..so this guy has had a separate fiance, baby momma, and wife in space of 7 months! Trashy indeed.

    • isabelle says:

      Of course he was engaged with a kid, that is Miranda’s type. She takes pride in still other women husbands and she knows exactly the dumbas*es to go after.

    • Mindy_dopple says:

      This!!! Someone made a reference to Practical Magic on another one of these posts but it’s a perfect quote. “One day she’ll find a man that’ll go through her”

      He’s just as awful as she is, he cheated on his fiancé long enough to knock his side piece up. Poor girl probably thought she got him for good because they’re a “family” now and then boom Miranda comes on the scene and this douchebag takes the VERY EASY bait. They deserve each other and I can’t wait to see this unfolds.

  18. Kayla says:

    Does anyone else think this “fight in the men’s room” was a proposition that one party took offense to/went wrong?

    • leela says:

      That would be more salacious and good for gossip but it was already mentioned that it started out with the older guy commenting about “young people and their phones”. I’d hazard a guess that the younger man (whether this is Miranda’s husband or not, is not confirmed) is on his phone (and not looking anywhere else) and bumped into the elderly guy when they were in the men’s room (or on their way to, this part is not clear). Hence, the older guy’s comment. Younger guy, instead of apologizing probably got into the older guy’s face and they had words.

  19. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Trash is as trash does. Miranda is a hot mess. And she clearly likes men who are just as messy and dysfunctional as she is because she’s addicted to drama. I honestly can see why Blake wanted to get the hell away from her. And I don’t even like Blake. He’s a dumb good old boy. But even he had the good sense to get away from her.

  20. Jennifer says:

    “Toss salads first, ask questions later.” 💀💀💀

  21. CheckThatPrivilege says:

    Lambert has the same smug facial expression as Fox “news” idiot Tomi Lahren.

  22. Enn says:

    I just want to know how the new husband is going to spend time with her, because all of the patrol cops I know don’t have flexible schedules.

    • Jamie says:

      He’s probably going to quit his job and sponge off of her, trying to make his modeling career happen.

    • minx says:

      She’ll pay him to accompany her as some kind of bodyguard/security dude. Soon she’lll get tired of having him at such close proximity and that will be the beginning of the end.

    • Sigh... says:

      He’s going to have all of the time in the world — FOR HER, but what about his NEWBORN?


  23. Jaded says:

    This has karma writ large all over it. Believe me, in my 66 years I’ve seen and been involved in some clearly karmic debts being paid off and it isn’t pretty for the perpetrators of these kinds of offenses. What goes around comes around and we ALL reap what we sow, good or bad.

  24. MA says:

    Imagine if this had been some black rappers, or imagine if this had been Cardi B

  25. adastraperaspera says:

    Nashville music royalty get everything covered up here, so these 911 calls that name her are really something else!

  26. JRenee says:

    Met in November, married in January…wow

  27. ojulia123 says:

    Miranda is the epitome of grace and elegance.

  28. Christine says:

    She looks inbred.

  29. Littlefishmom says:

    What is the big deal about this chick? She’s so trashy. What is her “talent” exactly because she seems to have none. She is a train wreck.

  30. DS9 says:

    She is, actually

  31. Liz version 700 says:

    She is crazy talented. Very gifted as a songwriter. But she is crazy crazy too
