Selma Blair is thankfully okay after she had a freak out on a plane and had to be taken off on a stretcher. Selma was flying back from a Father’s Day weekend trip in Cancun with her ex-man and their 4-year-old son when she started crying and made disturbing accusations like, “He burns my private parts,” and, “He’s going to kill me.” Witnesses said that Selma was drinking red wine and took some pills. She was shuffled off to the hospital. She tells Vanity Fair today that she danced with danger by mixing pills with the sweet nectar. Selma had a bad trip on that plane and gave this explanation and apology:
“I made a big mistake yesterday. After a lovely trip with my son and his Dad, I mixed alcohol with medication, and that caused me to black out and led me to say and do things that I deeply regret. My son was with his Dad asleep with his headphones on, so there is that saving grace. I take this very seriously, and I apologize to all of the passengers and crew that I disturbed and am thankful to all of the people who helped me in the aftermath. I am a flawed human being who makes mistakes and am filled with shame over this incident. I am truly very sorry.”
I’m going to guess that Ambien (aka the exorcist pill) is to blame. Not too long ago, I posted one of my many incoherent and ridiculous posts, and someone e-mailed me to ask if I was in a red wine and Ambien-produced haze when I wrote it. I know, what do they take me for? It was a wine cooler and Nytol haze! Red wine and Ambien? Pfft. That’s way too high class for me.
