Arianna Huffington Refuses To Turn Off Her Blackberry On Airplane, Gets Into Fight With Passenger!

Filed under: Media Minute

huffington post founder gets into airplane dramz

Maybe this is why all the birds are dying…

On a recent United Express flight from Washington Dulles to New York, Arianna Huffington reportedly refused to turn off her BlackBerry.

53-year-old passenger Ellis Belodoff didn't appreciate Miss Huffington's divatude, and he reportedly confronted her and said the following:

"Hey, lady! Don't you speak English?"

Looks like the tables turned though, because the passenger broke the rules himself by getting out of his seat against flight crew instructions, and Port Authority Police of NY and NJ were alerted when the plane landed.

Here's what Port Authority spokeswoman Jen Friedberg had to say about it:

"The crew did alert our police when it looked like there was a fight brewing, but by the time they landed our police just spoke to them."

Apparently nobody got into trouble, but the two trouble-making passengers were given "a talking-to." LOLs.

Josh Duhamel Says "It Gets Better"

Filed under: Gay Gay GayJosh Duhamel


Check out the video (above) of Josh Duhamel speaking out against bullying during an interview at a Trevor Project benefit.

Duhamel's been a source of drama lately with his inappropriate airplane-related behavior, so he was probs happy to get an opportunity to "change the subject."

We appreciate him taking the time out to speak up about this important topic, but admittedly out of all the videos we've seen, we wouldn't say this is the most heartfelt one out there.

As far as Duhamel's comments about blackberry dramz on the airplane are concerned…we just hope he's learned his lesson and he'll behave better on airplanes and in general in the future!

Josh Duhamel Refuses To Turn Off BlackBerry During Flight, Is Escorted Off The Plane By The Fuzz!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooJosh Duhamel

josh duhamel kicked off plane after refusing to turn off blackberry

This is just despicable! What on EARTH was he thinking?

Josh Duhamel caused a massive flight delay yesterday when he had to be escorted off the plane by authorities - all because he REFUSED to turn off his BlackBerry before take-off!

WTF?!

According to passengers on the flight - from New York to Kentucky - a flight attendant asked the actor to turn off his phone three separate times. Duhamel responded by allegedly "taunting the attendant," was "very rude," and upon being asked a third time, he laughed at her!

At this point, the plane was already on the runway, and the infuriated - and rightfully so - attendant had the plane turn back to the gate, so two officers could escort him off - further delaying the already late flight!

Unbelievable! Honestly, who do people think that they are?!

Such disrespect! And over a SAFETY PRECAUTION! Just disgusting!

We also have to give the flight attendant some credit for keeping her cool! If that were us, we would have totally gone Steven Slater on his ass!

Shame on him!

Chezza And X Factor Amps Up Security After Death Threats!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooCheryl ColeX FactorReality TV

cheryl-tweedy-and-x-factor-producers-increase-security-after-receiving-death-threats-from-angry-gamu-nhengu-fans

We don't blame her! People get super crazy about this shiz sometime!

Cheryl Tweedy is reportedly so freaked out about by the death threats she's received from bitter X Factor fans - who are upset that she didn't let contestant Gamu Nhengu move forward in the competition - that she's hired security to keep an eye on her home!

And apparently, the X Factor producers are as equally concerned, and have also amped up the precautionary measures at Wembley studios, where the reality competition is filmed!

A source explains:

"She's taking these threats seriously and is increasing her already good security. Producers don't want any risk. Everyone's quite nervous and wants the live shows to go without a hitch."

Threats have reportedly gone out against Chezza via Blackberry messenger and a Facebook group. Authorities are currently investigating the source of the fuckery.

Disgusting!

It's a COMPETITION, folks!

Absolutely deplorable that people would find it acceptable to threaten someone's life over something so foolish!

Keep your chin up, bb! We're sure this whole mess must be very frightening for you, but everything is going to be fine!

The Biebs Keeping Up With Kim Kardashian

Filed under: Kim KardashianJustin Bieber

jbiebskime.jpg

The Biebs truly is living the dream…of ever 16 year old kid in the country.

After doing their aptly-themed The Graduate shoot for Elle, Justin Bieber and Kim Kardashian have become good friends, as well as Blackberry buddies.

Here’s Bieber on his new BBM buddy:

"I have her on [BlackBerry Messenger] and we, like, talk all the time."

And more from Bieber, reminding us of his pubescent state:

"Beyond just being, like, extremely hot, she's actually, you know, a really nice person."

It's sweet that they're keeping up with each other so well…we just hope they're also keeping up with their statutory rape law knowledge.

How liberal are you being with those BBM smiley faces, Kim?

Credit Cards Are Out, Smartphones Are In!

Filed under: Etc.

Discover and Barclays Bank are teaming up with AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile in a "super-secret alliance," which will give their customers access to a new technology that will allow them to buy stuff off of their iPhone, BlackBerry, and other smartphones.

Consumers will be able to "wave and pay," without needing to swipe their credit card.

With Discover currently the fourth biggest credit card company, behind Visa, MasterCard, and American Express, the company is hoping to take "dead aim" at their competitors by offering the new technology.

In fact, shares for Visa and MasterCard have already dropped since the news was leaked.

According to insiders, "this is a game changer."

Watch the clip (above) and see how this new "contactless" swipe works. Pretty neat!
