Former AMC Star Jennifer Bassey Kicked Off Delta Airlines For Being "A Risk To The Flight"!

Marian Colby is in trouble, yet again! But this time it’s the actress who portrayed her for years on All My Children, Jennifer Bassey.

News on Thursday out of TMZ has that after Bassey had boarded a Delta Airlines flight, and shortly before take off needed to use the lavatory, when she came out of the on-flight restroom, the flight attendant said to Bassey, “Aren’t you going to flush?” … and also berated her about washing her hands.

As the story continues per the report, Jennifer says she planned to use her own hand sanitizer.  Then, the flight attendant followed her back to her seat and hovered because Bassey’s laptop was open prior to takeoff.  Bassey then claims the attendant bumped her hand and said, “Don’t touch me, don’t you ever touch me.” Jennifer responded by mouthing, “Go F**k yourself.”

Next ensued a huddle of flight employees and attendants where it was decided the flight needed to head back to the gate, where police officers removed Bassey, but she was not arrested.

Apparently, the flight attendant said she was assaulted by Bassey, but the police found no evidence that the 72-year-old actress assaulted anyone on board the flight!  The upshot: Delta told TMZ they are looking into the incident, while Jennifer is hoping that this Delta employee loses her job and gets the ax!

What do you think about this story involving the ever-popular AMC fave, Jennifer Bassey? Comment below!

I met Jennifer Bassey several years ago, after a performance by David Canary (ex Adam/Stuart, AMC) in the musical Kismet in Beverly, MA. I was hoping to get an autograph and picture with David and had the bonus of meeting the very gracious Ms. Bassey as well. This was very off-the-cuff and Jennifer was incredibly friendly and nice. I find it hard to believe this entire scenario. Since when do flight attendants follow passengers around, telling them to flush and wash their hands? I’m sure there will be a revised account published soon.

Marion Colby slash Jennifer Bassey is nuts LOL. She is a diva and has a temper. Please Jennifer go to Dr. Phil, and air your dirty laundry LOL. Jennifer is a wonderful actress, but the lady has issues.

Even if you noticed someone did not flush or wash their hands, is this world shattering? How rude to try to embarrass someone by pointing out that they did not wash their hands. I’ve seen people neglect to wash their hands but I would never try to embarrass them by pointing it out, especially , loudly. It sounds reasonable that JB did not like the soap provided and carried her own hand sanitizer. She could certainly be given the benefit of the doubt. And the attendent screaming, “Don’t touch me. Don’t ever touch me.” That definitely sounds like an attempt… Read more »

I find it hard to believe this regal lady who graduated from The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London did not flush! I suppose she may have forgotten or thought it flushes automatically. I use my own hand sanitizer myself after I use public restrooms. Thousands of hands touch public sinks, soap dispensers, etc-gross! Honestly, I probably would’ve told the flight attendant to f*ck off as well by that point-airlines kick so many people off flights over any little thing these days-I wonder if anyone recorded it? I’d like to see how it really went down. Is that sad?

I recently used the lavatory on a plane and it took me much longer to figure out which button to press to flush than it took to do “my business”!
This whole thing sounds very odd…

I sorta kinda believe Jennifer…that she was harassed by the flight attendant…if the rest of the account is accurate. Why the F#@K does a flfght attendant have a right to ask those questions? And then tell her to go fuck herself?
IF that’s what went down, then that flight attendant NEEDS TO BE FIRED!!

A wonderful character actress and perhaps a character in “real life,” but Miss Bassey deserves much better…and an exciting new role! Bless her.

Honestly? I would have said a lot more than ‘f**k you’. Stewardesses do tend to have a superiority complex. This attendant deserved it, I’m sure of it.
A little kindness and respect gets one far and beyond…

Use the toilet before you get on the plane.

+1 … and flush the darn thing! Could be she was rushing because she was supposed to be seated and buckled up for take off, and that’s why the attendant was annoyed.

Seriously, Mo? Have you even traveled to Europe, Hawaii, Asia? Such flights are from 7 to 24 hours. I know…I’ve traveled to these places. What is one to do? Wear Depends?

I am going to go a little off-topic here. She was excellent as Marian Colby on ALL MY CHILDREN. Frankly, there is no doubt in my mind that AMC should have NEVER been cancelled. I wasn’t crazy about the on-line version by Prospect Park, but I thought it would find it’s footing and do well. Now, I watch DOOL and no offense but to me it’s not up to par with ABC’s All My Children. For a long time, I have been hoping to see a new inception of All My Children come to surface….alas, at this time it doesn’t… Read more »

I don’t like Delta. I have experienced inept service and don’t fly with them anymore.

Way to go Jennifer. I would’ve told her to “f” off as well.
What nerve that lady has. I always use my own sanitizer.
What a silly thing for an airline to have to turn the plane around.
F off stewardness. She should be on suspension if not fired.

Kelly Ripa Talks On Her New Memoir ‘Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories’

Talk show host and All My Children alum, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) is opening up about her life and times in her highly-anticipated memoir available now, Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories.

Ripa chatted exclusively with PEOPLE who got some of intel and dish on what’s included in the book.

Kelly told PEOPLE, when she landed the gig as the new co-host of Live with Regis and Kelly, with the late Regis Philbin back in 2001, she felt like she was “getting shot out of a cannon.”  Ripa was also appearing on All My Children at the same time.

She tells the story of when her agent called with the offer, Ripa was told: “They want you to know who your boss is. It was very ominous, and it did not feel good.”  Her agent also said the show didn’t want her, “bringing an entourage.” She brought two people. “I came with hair and makeup,” Kelly says. “It was not an unusual thing for people on a television show to show up with.”

She added that Regis greeted her with executive producer, Michael Gelman, saying: “Uh-oh, Gelman, it’s got an entourage.” It?!  Kelly expressed that she “felt horrible.  He was probably trying to be funny, but at the same time it felt like a pile-on.”

As for Philbin’s attitude at the time, Kelly shared, “I understand that probably he didn’t want a co-host, but the network wanted me to be the co-host and I didn’t think I should pass up that opportunity. I don’t think it was fair to him. But it was also not fair to me.”

The actress-talk show host-producer also talked on her marriage to Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo), whom she met while both were on All My Children, sharing that they were, “too young to get married! On paper it should not have worked and when it didn’t work, we really worked at it. We fought for our marriage when it would have been easier to quit and throw in the towel.”

According to the book publisher, HarperCollins:  “In ‘Live Wire’, her first book, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. Whether recounting how she and Mark (Consuelos) really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.”

So, will you be ordering your copy of Kelly’s memoir? Let us know in the comment section below.

Eva LaRue’s Stalker Sentenced to 40 Months in Prison

In a harrowing situation spanning 12 years, a man who threatened former All My Children, Santa Barbara, and Y&R favorite, Eva LaRue (ex-Maria, ex- Margot, ex-Celeste) and her daughter, Kaya was sentenced to 40 months in prison.

James David Rogers, 58, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge John A. Kronstadt for over a decade of threatening letters and phone calls about torture, rape and death to LaRue and her daughter.

Rogers had pleaded guilty in April to two counts of mailing threatening communications, one count of threats by interstate communications and two counts of stalking.  According to court documents, all of this began in March 2007 until Rogers eventually was arrested in November 2019.  At the beginning of his stalking spree, LaRue’s daughter, Kaya was only five-years-old.

According to Deadline, Eva gave a “tearful victim impact statement, telling the judge in L.A. federal court that she has undergone therapy since the harassment began in order to deal with feelings of fear and paranoia.”  She added, “We didn’t know if he would show up on our doorstep. We will think about him for a lifetime. The fear is with me forever.”

The judge has ordered Rogers to self surrender on October 12th to begin his sentence at a federal prison in Ohio.

Eva won a Daytime Emmy back in 2020 for her guest star turn on The Young and the Restless, and is best-known to primetime viewers for her role in CSI: Miami.
