Celebrities on the plane

I see celebrities all the time on the airplane. In fact, on my last flight one of the Real Housewives of New York City (the one who is not exactly a housewife) slept all the way from New York to Los Angeles. The first thing I noticed was the cutest eye mask I’ve ever seen. It practically covered her entire face. When she woke up and came to the back galley for a glass of water, I couldn’t help but notice that even though she looks good on television, she’s even prettier in real life. Not normally the case when it comes to celebrities.

On the same flight an actress from The Shield, one of my husband’s favorite television shows, decided the best time to put on her gold, tall, high heel boots was not on decent into Los Angeles, not as we were taxiing to the gate, and not as all 200 passengers unbuckled their seat belts, stood up, grabbed their bags out of the overhead bin, and slowly but surely exited the aircraft. Oh no, she didn’t stick her feet inside those boots and zip them up until every single passenger on board the airplane had departed. Because flight attendants can’t leave until all passengers have deplaned, eight of us just stood there holding onto our own bags quietly waiting for those high heel boots to walk.

I’ve already written about Lindsay Lohan throwing a fit over a denied first class seat, Bret Michael’s wonderful manners aboard my mother’s flight, Ivana Trump calling two adorable kids barbarians, so you better believe I’ve got stories! Here’s your chance to figure out which celebrity goes with the story…

  2. i had miss frankel on my flt to somewhere in the carribbean and i guess she was having a bad day because she was stuck in a middle seat in economy. and there happened to be a really complicated seat dup and people moving to sit with their family but when i cleared it all up, i was able to offer miss frankel a choice of window or aisle seats and she had no clue what to do. she was freaking out and kept telling me to tell her where to sit and i was like okay, you have a choice…window or aisle…but both certainley better than middle. i told her if she’d like to sleep, she should take the window. no thanks or anything. everyone thought she was nuts. she did have her eye mask with her. and she is cute in person even without makeup–and tiny. but she is a bit odd. slept the whole way and only had a bottle of water with her for the entire 3.5 hour flight. maybe she was hungry n had low blood sugar!
