Two ex waitresses at the Boom Boom Room are suing Andre Balazs's glitzy Standard Hotel, claiming that they were let go because of their body types. According to the suit, management began to give them negative performance reviews soon after the club re-opened last fall, which (the 5'4'') Faye Rex [pictured] and Stephanie Jaggers claim is because they aren't tall enough. The duo's attorney says "they were excellent employees who were terminated for one reason - their body type." The hotel has not yet issued a comment. But it is known that Kim Kardashian was also denied from the Boom Boom Room, so they may be displaying a pattern of negative behavior against short women.
