Former All My Children actress Jennifer Bassey (Ex-Marian Colby) got her turn to tell her side of the story when she was taken off of a Delta Airlines flight earlier this week, after using the lavatory and mincing words with the flight attendant.  Bassey appeared on the series On the Record with Greta Van Susteren on the FOX News Channel on Friday.

Bassey told Van Susteren that she was on her way to Indianapolis to meet her boyfriend’s family when she got into a confrontation with a flight attendant over her decision not to wash her hands after using the lavatory.

She went on to tell Greta that the flight attendant repeatedly asked her, ‘You are not washing your hands?” Bassey then explained that she had Purell in her bag and chose not to use the airplane’s soap.  The story continued when Bassey said that her plane was in line waiting to take off when she took out her laptop.  Next, the flight attendant told her to put the computer away.

Jennifer also claimed during her segment on the plane incident, that she told the man seated next to her about the hand-washing confrontation, and then the flight attendant overheard her, and fired back at Bassey asking, “What did you say?”

Bassey claimed that the flight attendant then bumped into her arm and accused Bassey of touching her, and then admitted that she mouthed a swear word at the flight attendant, what followed was the actress being removed from the flight by police.

Watch Jennifer tell her story after the jump! Then, let us know what you thoughts of her side of the story as told to Greta Van Susteren

Jennifer is a diva, the woman needs to shut the hell up. She is very difficult and needs to go away

A memory for her for sure..
She was polite to muth the the fug you, I couldn’t have held it back lol

Agreed, su.
I am wondering if she was in first class. Sadly (and, a shame), passengers are treated differently, in first class. I have seen passengers in coach given the Nikki Newman-nose-in-air-look.
I must say, stewardesses are very rude sometimes….then again, so are passengers. We were not there.

For a trashy ex stripper … Nikki does that snooty nouveau rich thing so well. Lol. I hope Melody wins an Emmy next year!

Maybe it will give new attention in getting her a part, although I’m sure she was not aiming for this…I tend to believe her but I wish she kept it shorter and had a better conclusion, the “lawyer thing” is kinda cliche. And dare I say, altough I always liked her and I actually like her less- mannered sound here, when she smiles she has a Carol Channing vibe…maybe that’s the roll! Seriously, I do feel she was frazzled by it all and that’s not fair to Ms. Bassey.

I’m interested in hearing what the flight attendant has to say as there are definitely two sides to every story. Clearly, there are obnoxious flight attendants as well as obnoxious passengers…

Strange, very strange.

I kept thinking Bassey would make a good recast for Mary Williams, Paul’s meddling mother, on Y&R.

you are so Right! she would make an excellent addition to the Y&R family!…I’m sorry she had to go thru this..I surely hope delta looks into their employee further..& canns her ass!

Lol. People do not get tossed off of airplanes for good behaviour. According to American media…people don’t even get tossed off planes for having box cutters. Chick was probably whacked on meds and booze and got belligerent. Any publicity is good, I guess. Oh…to have the mind of an American.

No one could replace that whack job!! Lol. Carolyn Conwell played that role amazingly well and whoever wrote for her was brilliant!

Give me a break! Delta flight attendant over reacted and knew exactly what to say so that a customer (Jennifer B. ) would be “removed” based ONLY on flight attendant’s word. After that, the police confirmed that NOTHING threatening took place except an exchange of words. No charges. Nada. If Jennifer B. DID something wrong, she would NOT have been released immediately with NO charges. Abuse of “power” by the Delta flight attendant. Case closed. Good for Jennifer standing up for herself !

CeeCee

Absolutely, Mollie.
These attendants are Prima Donnas. They should keep in mind that we, the ‘ticket buyers’ keep their coffers full. Without us, they would not have jobs.

How would the attendant even know that she didn’t wash her hands? I keep the potty room door closed and locked until I’m completely finished.

Margie

Jennifer couldn’t figure out how to flush the toilet and had the door open. New boyfriend’s family now know what a jerk she is. Wash your hands, lady, and follow the rules about turning off devices.

Not that it’s any of the flight attendant’s business, but Jennifer should have washed her hands. I can’t believe she would go on national TV like this and so vehemently proclaim herself a non hand-washer! It’s like a Seinfeld episode (and she seems like a Seinfeld character in the interview).

I hope Auto-Tune the News gets a hold of that interview – it could be their next big hit!

Hi, Nick.
There are reasons why I would not use the airline’s soap. Some of it is very harsh to the skin. I actually carry my own soap. Another reason, everything in those lavatories houses bacteria. I don’t even touch the door handles…I use a tissue.
Just sayin’.

Nick D.
Guest
Nick D.

Fair points. Bottom line (no pun intended) is it’s not the flight attendant’s place to dictate these types of matters. There are certainly no FAA regulations mandating post-potty hand washing by paying passengers nor to flight attendants have any authority to police these matters.

However, to be safe I’d still probably avoid shaking hands with Jennifer were I to cross paths with her – maybe a fist bump.

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

@Nick …Oh, I agree, don’t get me wrong. The attendant had no right…until she speaks out…we only have one side.
I do not shake hands with anyone;…., period!!!!! And, I never, ever touch my face….germs are everywhere…especially the fingernails.
I am just not comfortable about people passing judgment, especially when they are not there.
Not only that, Nick, but, Jennifer is a woman of a certain age….some respect is in order.
My parents’ edict has always been part of my upbringing…respect one’s elders.

Thank you, Ann!! Did the flight attendant have a peephole she glances through into the restroom? This is all kinds of creepy!!

Many folks don’t touch public toilets & public sinks. Millions of germs!! I don’t blame her 1 bit for bringing her own, diva or not!

I know, that’s exactly whay I was thinking. Is she spying on all the travelers?? What makes her the hand washing police?!

She looks nuts in that photo. Probably a Diva!

CeeCee

OMG. LOL . I guess Jennifer was diagnosed, as nuts, just by a photo. Seriously?
The woman was let go immediately by the police. Can’t be that crazy…or the men-in-white would have ‘retrieved’ her.

Nick D.
Guest
Nick D.

There are many degrees of crazy. Men in white only come for the extreme cases. I think Jennifer’s definitely on the spectrum somewhere (based on that interview) but most likely “crazy in a good way” as they say.

CeeCee

Sorry, Nick. I suppose my sarcasms did not jive.
‘The men in white’ is a figure of speech, if you will. It was not meant literally…..LOL

Oh, my gosh, 4ever. I typed ‘Good one’, but instead auto correct took over, and came up with ‘Google’…..LOL.

It is not the flight attendant’s business if she wants to wash her hands or not.. it sounds like the flight attendant had a bug up her butt.

Why didn’t she take her hand sanitizer into the loo with her? Did she touch stuff on the plane before using her sanitizer? I would say yes, which is gross.

I don’t understand how the flight attendant knew she had not washed her hands. I don’t know if I would have said anything, but it is nasty not to wash one’s hands after using the toilet. I would have taken the sanitizer in with me.

From what I’ve heard, I have to side with the flight attendant on this one.

Did they have relations in the bathroom or something? How the heck does the f/a know she didn’t wash her hands??

I am a flight attendant and I must say we do know when passengers don’t wash their hands. We can hear the water run! Moms out there know exactly what I mean! When your children use the bathroom and don’t wash their hands, you know! The problem with you using the bathroom and not washing your hands as a passenger is this, you contaminate the aircraft and most importantly me! The contamination occurs when I am serving you your drink, you like to touch or cup my hands when retrieving the drink!! This is totally unacceptable!! Also, you like to… Read more »

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.

AMC Alum Sarah Michelle Gellar Reflecting on Her Time on Soaps: “Anything I Can Do to Continue the Legacy I’m Very Proud Of”

Daytime fans knew of Sarah Michelle Gellar her way before her Buffy the Vampire Slayer days, when she stepped on to the small screen as Erica’s (Susan Lucci) troubled daughter Kendall Hart on ABC’s All My Children. 

Gellar played the role from 1993 to 1995, and made a brief return in 2011 as the show came to its conclusion on ABC. Additionally, Sarah won a Daytime Emmy for her performance in the Outstanding Younger Actress category in 1995.

Sarah has partnered with Lysol for their brand’s Disinfecting Wipes “Buy One, Donate One” program. where now through September 26, whenever a pack of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes is purchased, another pack will automatically be donated to an under-resourced school through the Kids In Need Foundation.

The program is aimed to help curb the spread of illness-causing germs in schools this back-to-school season, a total of up to 16 million packs of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes will be donated to Title I schools across the country.

The program is the latest component of Lysol’s HERE for Healthy Schools initiative. Started in 2019 with the mission to help curb the spread of preventable illness and to help kids miss less school so they are able to learn, grow and thrive, HERE for Healthy Schools has provided educational materials for students and Lysol disinfecting supplies for educators and administrators to more than 49,000 schools across the country. This year, HERE for Healthy Schools is focused on helping to protect children, educators and parents as they make their big return to in-person learning in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking with TV Insider on the partnership, Gellar recalled her time on the soaps and how it changed her career and outlook, noting: “it was the training ground for the rest of my career.”

She went on to say: “I made incredible friends at that time and I learned incredible work habits, and soap operas are an intense amount of work, and I’m incredibly grateful for that time and the people that I met.  We live in a world now where my kids don’t even really know what a soap opera is, so anything I can do to continue the legacy I’m very proud of.”

So, do you remember Sarah’s time on AMC? What do you think of her thoughts on her time on the soaps? Comment below.
