Capping off Women’s History Month, the divas seemed to rule the restaurants this week. Bey brunched with Blue Ivy, Aretha and Chaka celebrated their birthdays, and media maven Tina Brown broke bread with Matt Lauer (possibly discussing a future in print, not broadcast journalism). Famous divorcées like Katie Holmes and Joan Collins crossed paths, and even Wonder Woman made an appearance. These and other independent women (not you, Amanda Bynes) are in this week’s roundup of celebritydining.
