Gualtier Maldé, positioned by the Met stage door after the Aprile Millo Andrea Chenier on April 14 (via comments at parterre.com):

Aprile came out in a big fur coat with ... a large birthday cake to distribute among the Aprile faithful. Aprile was asked if she was coming back next season and she replied "Oh yes, I'll be back, I just have to lose a few pounds...you know there is a sickness going on around here..." ... Her manager Ken Benson however would not confirm that Gelb demanded that Aprile lose weight.
