Matlin Called a "Diva"

Marlee Matlin is accused of acting like a "diva" at the World Deaf Expo this past week by a local paper. The Las Vegas Review-Journal says Matlin refused to have her photo taken with Bonita Leek who is with Miss Deaf International. Leek is quoted as saying Matlin "doesn't have the greatest reputation" in the deaf community. Later, Matlin tweeted, "Just had lovely talk with the CEO of Miss Deaf International. glad we cleared the air. And thanks to their hard working staff." Read the story here and see the tweet here.
