The myth of the Ivy

Photographers know that anyone desperate for attention pays a lunchtime trip to the Ivy restaurant. The paparazzi line up outside the white picket fence for hours trying to snap a picture of someone leaving. 
But here's the catch...when was the last time you saw a photo of someone leaving the Ivy in the magazines? 
Unless the rag is doing a round-up on celebs at the Ivy, the answer is September 10, 2003, when JLo and Ben Affleck dined together after canceling their wedding. JLo left in a bright green dress -- and tears in her eyes. Ah, there was a story behind that photo op. 
Other than that, I say the paps are wasting their time hanging out at the Ivy, the question is, when will they figure that out?
