Did a flight attendant working on Oprah Winfrey’s private jet join the Mile High Club while the Queen of Talk Radio snoozed on sleeping pills?
A flight attendant on Oprah Winfrey’s private jet who was allegedly fired for having sex during a flight in June while the talk-show billionaire dozed on sleeping pills filed a federal lawsuit Friday denying the allegations.
The lawsuit filed by Corrine Gehrls, 39, alleges that flight attendant Myron Gooch and Kirby Bumpus, who is the daughter of Winfrey’s friend Gayle King and is Winfrey’s goddaughter, made the false and defamatory accusations to cause her to be fired.
Gehrls and chief pilot Terry Pansing, 57, one of four pilots employed by Winfrey, were fired a short time later for “inappropriate intimate behavior,” the suit said.
A spokesman for Harpo Inc., Winfrey’s production company, declined to comment. Pansing, who lives in Sugar Grove, declined to comment. Attorneys in the case and Gehrls did not return calls seeking comment.
We know better than to comment on any alleged inappropriate behavior.
But the thought of getting your groove on while Oprah Winfrey lies passed out in first class? And now everybody knows about it?
Well, that is the definition of funny.
And this gives me the opportunity to resurrect an old image.
