Haha! Nice!

Lisa Rinna (Harry Hamlin's wife) catching some zzz's pre-take off Flt 33 JFK LAX this morning 5/20. Seat 8D.

Remarked to the FA that she was exhausted. Wasn't she on celeb apprentice? Could have been at the post season party wrap party last night. I guess the Donald wouldn't spring for F because there was availability as late as Saturday.

I think if Gary says he wants F you don't [email protected]$& with Gary. Even Trump knows that.

He's tougher than Lisa. But Lisa is definitely prettier than Gary.

No arguments there. Perhaps it also had to do with the fact that they could book Gary one of the center section seats thereby ensuring the safety of the other pax in the cabin? Is that where he was seated?

It's kind of sad to see these baseball heros getting old - Mays, Aaron, Banks - entering into their 80s! Hard to believe.

I as thinking that as well. I would rather have seen Willie Mays on the plane as an old man than have read about him in the obits.

Cheers.

Mike Ditka - ORD -

Mike Ditka getting the royal AA treatment with escort.

We talked in the AC elevator - he was on his way to visit his mother for Mothers day (it was a few weeks ago - finally had a moment to mention it). He was quite nice - well weathered.

Great minds....

Although the worst name to see in the obits is ones own.

I wasn't on his flight. But Checkov's seat in F is the best seat for a wild man like Garey. FAs can keep their eye on him and he won't disturb other pax.
