Blind Item #1 - Easy Easy

This former B list all movie actress who now would die to be B list and is happy just going from party to party and guy to guy in Europe was at an airport this past week and asked the airline how come she had not been given a first class upgrade. They said that she would have to pay for it. Our actress did the don't you know who I am routine and they said they had never heard of her and didn't recognize her. She pulled up her IMDb page and still no luck. She stormed off yelling and told them they would be hearing from her people.

Tara Reid? I don't know if she was B list.

Tara

Christopher Cruz said...

Tara FTW!!!

Pam anderson

Amber said...

I was thinking Tara, also. Though I think she guested on Scrubs for a few episodes, she's definitely primarily movie.

Sarah said...

Tara

Sarah said...

Baywatch, Home Improvement, DWTS, and whatever that reality show with Tommy was...Pam is primarily a tv girl.

Jamie 2 said...

Do B list actors expect free first-class upgrades?? Why would the airlines do that?

FlirtyChick74 said...

I didn't know airlines did that.

*karen* said...

Not that she's a good actress, but I always kind of liked Tara Reid in movies. I wish that she'd get her act together.

goes in circles said...

Not Pam. She's recognizable to most anyway.

Rosemary Young said...

If you pull up Tara Reid's IMDb page, there is a link for a fan-created list called ""'Celebrities' who are sometimes considered attractive/handsome, but are NOT (imho)." Wonder if Tara pointed that out, too. Fool.

Sherry said...

I would think you'd know Pamela Anderson so I'm going with Tara Reid. She's pretty obscure now. Wonder what "people" will be getting back with the airlines.

Jules_345 said...

I honestly don't think there are enough clues to guess this, it could fit so many but I love that it happened no matter who the actress is.

Mitzy Glitzy said...

I love when parasitic celebrities get shut down. Teachers, cops, military etc.. and fireman should be given automatic first class upgrades. Not some I used to be somebody but not really alcoholic asshole like a Tara Reid.

Del Riser said...

There's an old joke about a celebrity pulling the "don't you know who I am" thing on airline personnel, who announced over the loudspeaker at the gate..."Can anyone here help, this gentleman doesn't know who he is".

This should be the standard reply to these folks so well known that they think they *deserve* an upgrade but apparently can't pay for it.

Sherry said...

Del I was about to post that story too. It was floating about when I flew for UAL 20 years ago. It's hilarious and supposedly happened out of Denver at United. Probably an urban legend but funny all the same.

La Descarada said...

I figured Tara Reid for this. I can picture her standing there spazzing out, near twitching, drunk and or high, dirty hair, with a wonky eye getting all dramatic. Ho, please.

phoenix said...

Wouldn't it be fun if in response to a fading celeb outburst like that, the service person said something like "I read the tabloids and wouldn't name drop if I were you." ha

CGemini said...

Tara had a travel type show, didn't she?
Taradise...just looked it up

Del Riser said...

@Sherry, I heard it about that time frame also, and was told it was true.

If it's not it should be! Great comeback to an entitled feeling ass.

Mhdz said...

I don't have a guess, but damn that's hilarious.

Shay said...

The airline worker should've told Tara (or whoever this was) "Yeah, I know who you are, a broke bitch who can't afford a 1st class upgrade." Boom.

Diana G said...

Her "people" are probably those 2 blond guys that dress alike....I think they are reality stars someone in Europe. LOL!

PuggleWug said...

Remember when Tara was pretty, healthy, and a semi decent actress? What the hell happened?

HalleGoLightly said...

Would love to see someone pull the "Don't You Know Who I Am?-thing and have the person throw them a, "Yeah, you're a person, just like the rest of us." I'd vomit if I heard someone say that. Yeah, you were in a few shit movies...you're better than everyone! Ugh.

Mango said...

@ Rosemary - I saw that list and read this about Miranda Cosgrove: "She was discovered at a young age singing and dancing around a table in a restaurant...

OMG, can you imagine being another diner and having to put up with that??

PuggleWug said...

Mango, I hate when people think that shit is cute. I would have been biting my tongue to not say anything to her parents.

DBZee said...

Ugh, self-entitled fools make me gag. I worked at a Navy Exchange in So Cal for a time (my fiance was in the Navy) and this woman came in and tried to return a pair of $5 tennis shoes (the cheap kind that look like Keds). She'd bought them 6 months before and they were trashed. I refused, she started tantruming, and then my supervisor came over and had me do it - because the woman was an officer's wife. She smirked at me when I handed the $5 back.

Call me yndy... said...

I remember when that surfaced. Would've been at Stapleton back then, but it was stilled told at Apollo/Galileo HQ back in the day too... So it must be based on something that happened at UA.

T. E. Cuz said...

dbzee, i feel sorry for her poor husband...

cant.stand.entitled.people. :\

Unknown said...

I had a former Ms. Usa pull the don't you know who I am routine on me. She was looking for free tickets to an event for charity I was doing PR for. I responded "I'm sorry I don't know who you are but I am sure you make enough money to purchase a ticket, the charity does not make any money if we give them away." She got very pissed on the phone and said she would bring priceless press to the event and that was worth a four free tickets (what she was asking for). She told me in no uncertain terms she was good friends with my boss and she would have me fired. My boss came in my office (his was in the next office) and said who was that? I told him and what has transpired..he smiled and said..never heard of her..LOL.

Elle said...

I've seen an airline do this. Flying back from London once, I was in line with Juliette Lewis and her band (who I guess had played at some festival). She was just standing in line like a regular person, no diva behavior. She sat next to me in coach on the plane, across the aisle and the airline rep came up and said 'MIss Lewis, we have found a seat for you in first class, please come with us' but she just stretched out, said 'Nah, I'm all good here', put her eye mask on and went to sleep. Always thought she rocked after that.

Shay said...

@ Elle, you just made me love Juliette Lewis with that story.

libby said...

Elle---That is exactly how I want Juliette Lewis to be. Thanks for the anecdote.
I truly hope the rumor of her getting over Xenu is true!

Shay said...

Eek...Juliette was/is a scientologist?

MC said...

I once pretended not to know who a celebrity was just to irk his skanky, gold-digging girlfriend who was expecting special treatment.

BitterBlondin said...

Either Tara or Pammy... Lol!

whocaresnow12 said...

I was on a flight back from Seattle and Kate Bosworth and her then model boyfriend sat in coach. There was an empty row behind us in first class and she wasn't upgraded.

Diana G said...

@DBZee - I'm am Officer's wife and I would never think of acting like that...I have seen other Officer's wives act like they were A list celebrities. This is the reason I stopped going to spouse get-togethers - too much drama. But, of course there are a lot of awesome down-to-earth ones, like me! Lol!

Diana G said...

* I am an *
Geez....I need to grammar/spell check' ;-)

Diana G said...

Yup - that's them! LMAO!!!

Elizabeth said...

Uh, when you've reached the point you are showing strangers your IMDB page, you've lost your dignity.

bellaluna said...

DBz - I'm an Officer's daughter, and that shit would NOT fly in our home! My Mom told my Dad's men DON'T CALL ME MA'AM. (We had over my Dad's men on the regular for holidays, when they weren't able to go home, and it was always such a joy to me. The mind of a child, I guess.) I had a good family.

And when I could drive, I was always MORTIFIED by the men at the Base entrance saluting me, due to the Officer's stickers. It was just SO EMBARASSING.

DBZee said...

Right? It was pretty unbelievable. There was a small group of officer's wives on the base who acted like they were royalty. Fortunately, they were a pretty small group.

My stepdad was Air Force, then Air Force Reserve - all of his men were very, very nice. My mom said some of the wives could be snobby but it was like the school PTA - there are just "those women."

Bella, I can totally see the mortification. Your parents sound like really awesome people! :)

bellaluna said...

Elle, I so see that in Juliette. And it makes me kinda love her. (Have you seen "Catch and Release?" That just seems like SUCH the role for her! The whole "quirky-weird" thing. And she was GREAT in that Rollerball [or whatever it was called] with Drew.)

She's a second-gen (at LEAST) Xenu folk, so I REALLY hope she makes it out okay.

And may I just add that Giovanni Ribisi now creeps me out on whole other levels, and look at his particular choice/genre of movie roles because...YIKES. I mean, he does "creepy f*cked up weird like nobodies' business, but MAN. DAMN.

bellaluna said...

DBZee - My parents WERE awesome. But there were SOME wives (OMG, the whole "Big Hair for Jesus" and "Mary Kay wives" simply TERRIFIED me, because it was a SIN to be out without wearing lipstick and having your hair did!) who were just SO wrapped up in being Officers' Wives.

And here was my paralegal Mom, volunteering at the Social/Legal Services Center on base, shopping for the Food Pantry (and dragging my surly childish ass along for the ride to the Commissary, which TRUST ME...SUCKED HARD, at the time, because I was an ungrateful little snot. It - the Commissary - flooded. Annually. On the regular. 'Til they built a new one.) so she could HELP THESE WOMEN whose husbands were Over-Seas be fed and have diapers and formula and stuff.

It was a whole "sense of responsibility" thing in our house.

(And I will say that I pulled the "I may be an Enlisted Man's wife, but I am an OFFICER'S daughter, and you WILL treat me accordingly" on a CO or two. And once they realised that my Dad was signing their paychecks, everything went smooth!) *smug grin*

Surfercutie said...

I don't think this is Tara. She's a lot nicer in person.

Tell us more. Please....
