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!

Three words……fly Jet Blue !

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 to embarrass someone. I would like to hear from other passengers. OTOH, why should they care about people making fools of themselves.

Marion Colby–still full of piss and vinegar, I see!

She’d make a fine Dina Abbot???

Yes she would be a terrific Dina Abbott Mergeron.

Perfect, jimh.

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…

What a bunch of balony! The flight attendant was ticked off at sone thing and over reacted.

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.

Where is sweet ol’ Stuart Chandler when you need him???

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?

Where depends! Maybe this actress will get a commercial advertising depends!

Misspelled “where”. Meant to type “Wear”. Oops. There goes my joke!

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 seem plausible. I wonder though, if all the Dust ever settles between ABC-TV and Prospect Park, will anything be done with the characters of Pine Valley and Landview?

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.

Mark Consuelos Celebrates One-Year Anniversary as Co-Host of ‘Live’ Alongside Kelly Ripa

Today, April 17th marks a full-year since Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo, All My Children) took over the co-hosting duties of ‘Live” alongside his wife, and longtime co-host, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley, All My Children).

Consuelos replaced Ryan Seacrest who are six seasons decided to be back on the west coast full-time. For Consuelos, now having the opportunity to work off of Ripa as co-hosts has been something of adjustment for him, but viewers have been eating it up.

Live with Kelly and Mark has remained the No. 1 entertainment talk show on television over the past year, growing 3% in average total viewers to 2.23M per episode.  It is also the most-watched daytime talk show in the last year in key demos of women 18-49 and women 25-54. All of this, since the real-life marrieds teamed-up.

Speaking with Deadline, Kelly Ripa shared why the two are gelling on-screen, “I do think that there is something very possibly relatable about our relationship. We have disagreements like a normal couple, and we’re not afraid to let them unfold on the air and in front of America, and I think people find a lot of themselves in that.”

Mark weighed in how he has progressed as a host, and what he could improve at, sharing, “I’d like to get better at my interviewing skills. I’d like to get better at reading a teleprompter…I think I’m getting better at throwing to commercial. The other day in the middle of the show as we go to commercial, my sign off was ‘See you guys around.’ I mean, the show wasn’t over. The most obvious thing to say would be, ‘We’ll be back right after this.’ But I just said, ‘See you around.’ So we went to commercial and one of the producers (goes) ‘What was that?’ I don’t know… So for the next few sign offs, as a joke, I’d say ‘See you around.’ We got a kick out of it.”

Meanwhile, Kelly has given huge props to Mark, “I find Mark utterly compelling, really interesting, super funny, and he’s bold in a way like nobody else. He says what’s on his mind. If he’s thinking it, he says it.  I’ve done this a long time and oftentimes people will adjust their natural personalities to pander to what they think the audience wants to hear, and Mark will tell people what he thinks, and he doesn’t care if it’s not a popular opinion. It gives him an edginess that I think is really missing in the landscape today. Everybody’s so afraid to say anything, and Mark is unafraid to say exactly what he’s thinking.”

In a statement, Debra O’Connell, President News Group and Networks, Disney Entertainment shared, We could not be more thrilled with how Mark has seamlessly joined the show family as permanent co-host. His undeniable charisma and his and Kelly’s natural chemistry are evident as they deliver the laughs and smiles to our viewers each morning. We are incredibly proud of how Live has continued to evolve and that the audience is responding so enthusiastically.”

So, do you think Mark Consuelos is the best co-host his wife Kelly Ripa has ever had on ‘Live’? How would you say he is doing as co-host after one full year on the job? Comment below.
