Blind Item #1 - Kindness

This A- list mostly television comic actress and infrequent big show host gave up her first class seat on an LA to NYC flight and sat back in coach so a woman with a lap child could enjoy the extra room. Our actress chatted in the back and took photos and even bought food for people.

Tina Fey or Amy Poehler?

auntliddy said...

Very refreshing. Good karma for her.

OneEyeCharlie said...

Heeeey Kristin. Good morning. Any fun plans for the weekend?

punningtons said...

Oooh I'm going with Amy

TalksTooMuch said...

Amy Poehler!!

Just Another HR Lady said...

Agree with @sandy, Tina or Amy. A+ makes me think Tina.

Cocoa said...

Lap child?

Violet said...

Well it's presumably Poehler or Fey - but as even I know both of them as being super famous, they must be A list rather than A-.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Heeey Charlie! I'll probably be brushing up on my pop culture bc I'm swinging and missing today.

You having your morning Sizzurp?

MISCH said...

Sweet

Renoblondee said...

Tina. Love her.

LottaColada said...

@Cocoa, I'm still wondering too

Cocoa said...

And chatting with the folks in the back and taking pictures/ buying food is exactly what Ellen did at the Oscars.

T. E. Cuz said...

ellen is a great guess and fits with the "big show" clue.

tina fey was the first name to come to my mind, though. either way, good karma for the actress.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Its the usual thing Violet, no matter how multi talented women in Hollywood are, if they can't open a hit movie, they're lesser then...any guy who can. No matter how one note their performances are..:-\

Cocoa said...

Is it like a lap dog, only more.... human?

Just Crazy said...

So a woman booked a ticket in First Class with a lap child? That doesn't happen very often.

punningtons said...

Any kid under two has to be strapped to your lap

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Cocoa, can we call kids "lap humans" now?

punningtons said...

It's like wrestling a seal for four hours

Jeannie said...

Flying with a child under the age of two is free as long as they are sitting in your lap.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Oh shoot, forgot to guess...
Its either Amy or Tina since each live on opposite coasts, I can see business and pleasure taking them cross country.
Ellen, hasn't been a comic actress in years and is based in L A where she tapes a show daily, can't see her jetting off easily.

TalksTooMuch said...

It is almost EXACTLY like wrestling a seal, punningtons, but with more poop. And noisier

Cocoa said...

Kristin, only if they're strapped to one's lap.

@punningtons Free seal wrestling!

jm said...

I love stories like this!

Jessica Larson said...

Lap child? LOL

NomNom83 said...

It's either Amy or Tina. I'll go with Amy since she has a show currently on the air (season finale last week but they're back in the Fall). If it was Tina, even with all the stuff she has in the works, I feel like there would be an indication in the blind that she doesn't have a current on-air show.

OneEyeCharlie said...

I am, Wigs! If I can scrounge up a wifebeater T and a flat brim cap, I might post a Francoesque selfie.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Just Crazy, the woman booked coach with her child and the star switched with her...
I'm surprised they let a small child into First Class. From my middle seat in coach, I thought they were more stringent.
I have many jealous fantasies about what goes on in First Class :-D

OneEyeCharlie said...

I'm picturing Steamy approaching the curtain like Oliver Twist going up to ask for more gruel.

Sherry said...

Charlie in the Franco post I had some ideas for a selfie.

They are actually called Laps when they do the count on the plane.

Amy Pohler. I think Tina has got to be A with all her Emmy's

Take your pick: Ellen, Tina or Amy.

Sabrina said...

Yup, Amy, Tina or Ellen, and I'm fine with any of them.

Seven of Eleven said...

Tina and/or Amy A-? Oh, chicken...

Cocoa said...

Thanks, Sherry! I should have thought of asking a former flight attendant. :)

M. Brown said...

Amy is more likely to chat and take pics with people. It could be Tina though. No way is it Ellen.

Rose said...

Ellen wouldn't be described as a comedic actress most likely because of her talk show.

Tina or Amy because of the GG. My guess is Tina.

Steampunk Jazz said...

@ Charlie, you be right :-D

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

I guess Amy b/c she's a mother and sympathetic to another mothers needs. (Unless Tina is a mom too, then I'll have to guess it was Betty White)

Lola Heatherton said...

Whoopi

PJ said...

Uhhh...What exactly is a "lap child"?! Lol. Seriously.

Boston Brand said...

Jane Lynch?

Scallywag said...

Uhhh...What exactly is a "lap child"?! Lol. Seriously.

It means you didn't buy them a seat. You can take a child up to age two onboard without purchasing their own seat.

scarletscout said...


I like BostonBrand's Guess- Jane Lynch FTW.

scarletscout said...


Whoopi HAAAAATES flying- I can't see her moving outa her seat for anybody or anything.

Poor Kate said...

Lemme tell you who it ISN'T: ELLEN.
