Ellen DeGeneres is the latest celebrity to slam United Airlines. In case you somehow missed it, the airline has a PR nightmare on their hands after a passenger was forcibly and aggressively removed from an overbooked flight.
Jokes aside, Ellen says the solution is simple. "The biggest problem was the way United handled it. They had a computer pick a random person and just took them off the plane. That seems like a bad policy,” she explains. "Here’s a better policy: Don’t overbook your flight.”
Ellen goes on to connect United's latest flub to when they turned two girls away last month for wearing leggings. "United said yoga pants aren’t appropriate for flying, which is crazy because I’ve seen more yoga pants at airports than I’ve seen in yoga classes,” she points out. "I think United didn’t want people to wear yoga pants because there’s nothing to grab when you’re yanking someone to pull them out. There’s nothing to hold onto. I took it too far. I told the truth."
- It's worth noting, however, that in this case, the flight wasn't overbooked at all - airline reps simply gave that as the initial explanation of why they needed volunteers to give up their seats.

Any pregnant woman will tell you, sleeping is not easy. RadarOnline is claiming Amal Clooney, who has two buns in the oven, has reportedly kicked hubby George out of their bed because she's not getting any sleep.
“He snores like a monster, especially after a few tequilas," some kind of source claims. "While she’s up every hour virtually needing to use the bathroom.”
While a reliable insider tells Gossip Cop Amal hasn't kicked her hubby out bed, even if the story turned out to be true, there's no trouble in Clooney paradise.

Michael Buble’s wife has shared some happy news regarding their son Noah’s condition. While doing a press conference in Argentina for an upcoming movie, Luisana Lopilato opened up about how the three-year-old is doing following four months of chemotherapy.
"Thank God, my son is well,'' she said. "When things like those that happened to us occur, you take on life changes. It happened to us. Now I value life much more, the now and the today."
She also thanked the public for heir support, sharing, "I want them to know that they reached us and that it helped us a lot to come through this. It’s difficult for me to speak about this, it’s very recent and I’m still a bit sensitive about the subject."
She adds, "But the love is daily, when people stop me in the street. It’s wonderful to know that you’re accompanied in life and that people love you."
