Celebrities — they’re just like us.
Not. Even. Close.
While watching reruns on television last night — yes, it’s that very sad time of year — I was treated to not one but two commercials that referenced Alec Baldwin’s infamous inflight meltdown.
You remember — he was playing Words with Friends after the plane door had closed and had a very heated exchange with the American flight attendants. Then a very heated Twitter tirade about same.
Then he closed his Twitter account.
Months later, his Twitter is open. He even made fun of the account on a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live. And now not only Capitol One has referenced the incident in their latest ad — starring Baldwin, of course — but also a commercial highlighting the inventors of…
Words with Friends.
Yep, stuff like that happens to me all the time when I have travel mishaps.
Not. Even. Close.

Turns out teeny tiny songstress Kristin Chenoweth and I have something in common.
It’s not our singing ability — which I’m sure was your first thought — and it’s certainly not our size. (I have shoes bigger than her.) And while it’s true we both love musical theatre, I’m talking more ‘guilty pleasures’ here.
Kristin and I are both fans of chain restaurants.
She waxed poetic for her love of ‘em on Conan last night — Olive Garden, Outback Steakhouse, Applebees. He called her a ‘cheap date.’ I call her a comrade in arms.
One of her favorites and mine?
Grilled cheese on Texas toast, tater tots, and a grape slush is my favorite meal at Sonic. But we don’t have Sonics in Manhattan. Apparently LA doesn’t have them, either. So Kristin and I both suffer their national ads. And dream.
See? Celebrities are just like us.
