I know, she can barely move the Billboard needle, so how in the hell is she accomplishing feats of job termination? Well, it’s not in the way you’re probably thinking.
The Sun claims Rita Ora was on a Virgin Atlantic flight from London to Los Angeles, and apparently she was such a presence that the skies were VERY friendly that day. A flight attendant named Charlotte Whittingham served Rita on the flight and later gushed about it to her girlfriend. She said Rita was “flawless,” “gorgeous,” and was reminiscent of a “beautiful oil painting.” Charlotte, where were you during contract negotiation time when VH1 gave ol’ Rita the heave-ho in favor of the return of Tyra Banks for the next season of America’s Next Top Model?
It’s one thing to say that shit in private, but Charlotte’s gushing happened on Facebook. It’s brave to publicly admit you’re a Rita Ora fan, but it turns out it can also be incredibly stupid. Charlotte’s social media comments about her flawless, gorgeous passenger Rita Ora could be read everywhere, so Virgin bosses called her in. Sir Richard Branson apparently doesn’t want heavy-breathing stalker types working on his airplanes, and Charlotte was given a disciplinary notice for violating data protection laws and discussing VIP passengers. Funny, considering Rita was probably extremely flattered that someone was talking about her!
With her Rita lady boner deflated, Charlotte quit that trick. And she’s apparently v. distraught. Not only is Charlotte out of a job, a friend says Charlotte is suspicious that some other flight attendant had it out for her:
“She thinks it was a colleague that grassed her up – she’s deeply hurt. She doesn’t know why someone would go out of their way to ruin her life over a trivial little comment.”
Girl, this is the airline industry. Flight attendants are ready to jump out the escape chute, and take two beers with them on the way out! Hell, one on my flight the other day nearly shoved a bag of mini pretzels up my right nostril when I asked for the full can of Sprite instead of just a measly plastic cup. So of course they’re gonna get petty. But don’t fret Charlotte; Rita basically has a lock on every secondary reality show hosting gig here in the U.S. Fly across the pond (maybe on Delta this time) and have her hire you as an assistant for all your troubles! If not, Spirit Airlines is always hiring. It’s basically the Virgin Atlantic of the Rust Belt!
Here’s more of FGBOP (flawless, gorgeous, beautiful oil painting) Rita Ora performing at the Victorious Festival in Southsea, England over the weekend.
