Tag: Russell SimmonsView All Tags
Maybe it's because she's usually flying out of LAX, maybe it's because she's just lucky, but HotelChatter editrix Juliana Shallcross sees a lot of celebs on planes. Sunday, it was Liz Phair sitting business select on Southwest; today, she bumped into Russell Simmons.
The hip-hop icon and Juliana were both trying to get to New Orleans when a radar problem kept their Delta flight from taking off. Once the crippled jet made it back to the gate, it was straight to the El Cholo Cantina in Terminal 5 for Simmons while Juliana went to scour the nearby restaurants for grub.
Delta got the avionics fixed in about two hours, which should've given notoriously germaphobic Russell enough time to grab a bottle of hand sanitizer: While the radar is good to go, Delta didn't have time to fix the busted sinks in the plane's lavs.
