Ah, first class – where you get actual champagne instead of a $10 glass of white wine and a straw to blow bubbles into. But this isn’t about how Lena Dunham is living the life, it’s about how Lena Dunham wasn’t feeling some hateful words that allegedly came out of the mouths of two American Airlines flight attendants, and how she publicly called them out for it.
On Wednesday, 23-year-old Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast Aly Raisman tweeted about a gymnasty (sorry I couldn’t help myself) experience she recently had while going through airport security. She says it happened while interacting with a woman TSA agent and a man TSA agent. The woman recognized she was thee Aly Raisman by her buff arms. The man, however, doubted that was true. He didn’t even need any proof, like photo ID or a box of Special K; he just assessed that her arms were too small and weak to execute moves like a roundoff into a back handspring. That really pissed Aly off.
Many weird and gross things have happened on airplanes and Kumail Nanjiani (aka Dinesh from Silicon Valley) recently experienced peak-airplane awkwardness. And he later tweeted about it.
“Don’t make any sudden movements pal, because I’m Right Here Waiting. Oooh, that was good. I should say that out loud.”
The latest round of celebrity air travel drama is brought to you by a very unlikely source: Richard Marx and Daisy Fuentes. What is it with Richard and Daisy popping up in the month of December for a totally random reason? Last December it was by getting married to each other. This year it’s because Richard helped to take down a crazy passenger on a flight from Vietnam to South Korea.
Judge Reinhold, a man who has played both a pretend judge and a cartoon judge on television because his name is “Judge“, will soon face a real judge. The “Who’s on first?“-style jokes practically write themselves.
Everything I’ve ever learned about flying while breastfeeding comes from two people: Alyssa Milano, who got mad at airport security at Heathrow in London for taking her breastmilk. And from the lady whose boobs were leaking while going through a pat-down in front of me on a midnight flight to Las Vegas and gave the TSA the best “deal with it” look. I know that flying and breastmilk are a combination that can sometimes end in drama, which is what happened to Emilie de Ravin.
