    It is likely prima donna.

    n.
    The leading woman soloist in an opera company.
    A temperamental, conceited person.
    [Italian : prima, feminine of primo, first + donna, lady.]

    You're very welcome. We are here to help you with any and all English problems. When someone other than a real prima donna is called a prima donna, it is a negative comment. It means that they are behaving like they are better than everybody else. :wink:
