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

And, how do you know this? Do you know her personally?…..Or are you repeating second-hand information?

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

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 »

TONIGHT: All My Children’s Debbi Morgan and Darnell Williams Together Again on All-New Episode of ‘Our Kind of People’

The Fox drama, Our Kind of People (9 pm ET/8pm CT), will feature a reunion, of sorts, on tonight’s January 18th episode when Debbi Morgan (Ex-Angie, All My Children) once again shares screen-time with her former on-screen soap opera love, Darnell Williams (Ex-Jesse, All My Children).

While mum’s the word as to Williams role, we know that Debbi plays Angela’s Aunt Piggy on the series, and in last week’s installment, Piggy went to the police station to turn herself in for the murder of her ex-boyfriend years ago.  However, Darnell’s character could hold the key as to what really went down in the murder.

Debbi spoke to TV Line about acting again with Darnell: “We were shooting the scene when Darnell’s character walks through the door for the first time.  And it was the first time we see this character on the show, and I looked at him and shouted, ‘Jesse!’ The director had to yell cut and everyone fell out laughing. It was hilarious. I knew that wasn’t his name on Our Kind of People but I couldn’t help myself. We worked together for so many years as Angie and Jesse and that’s the first thing that came to my mind.”

Photo: FOX

For those who have not checked out Our Kind of People, it takes place in the aspirational world of Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard, a historical stronghold where the rich and powerful Black elite have come to play for over 50 years.

In story, strong-willed single mom Angela Vaughn (Ex-AMC star, Yaya Decosta) sets out to reclaim her family’s name and make an impact with her revolutionary hair care line that highlights the innate, natural beauty of Black women, but she soon discovers a dark secret about her own mother’s past that will turn her world upside-down and shake up this community forever. The show is a soapy, thrilling exploration of race and class in America and an unapologetic celebration of Black resilience and achievement.

The series is from writer and executive producer Karin Gist (Star, Grey’s Anatomy) and executive producer Lee Daniels (Empire, The United States Vs. Billie Holiday).

So, will you be watching Debbi and Darnell together on tonight’s Our Kind of People? Comment below.

Three-Time Daytime Emmy Winner, Cady McClain, Reveals She’s ‘Back On Set’ But On Which Show?

After her Instagram post earlier this week, fans of Cady McClain have been attempting to dissect her cryptic tease of a message. McClain, a three-time Daytime Emmy winner, shared the good news with fans that she is ‘back to work’, except she didn’t share which show or project she is working on … just yet!

In her post, McClain teased: “Back on set! Fun to be working again on such a terrific show! Can’t wait to be able to share the news with you all soon! Meantime, hoping you are all taking good care of yourselves. Sending hugs!! ”

Now, it could be Cady is working on a primetime show, not a daytime show, but we shall see.

She has previously appeared on The Young and the Restless and Days of our Lives of the four remaining daytime soaps.  On Y&R she played Kelly Andrews, and on DAYS, Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  And, as viewers of the NBC soap saw this week, Jennifer (in a short appearance by Melissa Reeves) returned to Salem with Jack (Matthew Ashford), only to tie-up loose ends over the holidays and exit the show.

Since DAYS still tapes months ahead, could McClain be returning there, or might she pop up on GH and B&B? The character of Kelly was killed-off of Y&R back in 2015.

Previously, Cady became soap-famous for her roles as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children and Rosanna Cabot on As the World Turns.

Share your thoughts on which show you hope Cady is working on, whether, primetime, daytime, or a streaming series, in the comment section below.
