Thank goodness, the crack investigative team at Entertainment Tonight and The Insider file an EXCLUSIVE report from 30,000 feet: O.J. Simpson's Flight from Las Vegas to Ft. Lauderdale! The HuffPo team received this missive late last night, keeping us apprised of OJ's every move while flying coach (coach! Sign a napkin and sell it, OJ!) and enjoying the view from seat 4D, "laughing and joking" with other passengers. His girlfriend sat in 4E and his lawyer sat in 4C, leaving us to wonder why these crack reporters didn't specify whether he was on the aisle — 'cause those middle seats SUCK, and can make a person verrrry annngggrry — but we're guessing that the absence of a seat F indicates that lawyer Yale Galanter was stuck sitting across the aisle beside some random. Ew.
Here are all the details — CREDITED TO ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT AND THE INSIDER AND ENCOURAGING YOU ALL TO TUNE-IN TO ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT AND THE INSIDER ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2007 — because you obviously care verey deeply about how much OJ's snack pack cost (and what was in it — oh, all right, we'll tell you! "Chips, salsa, fruit bar, chocolate bar, cheese and breadsticks") and what he had to drink ("coca-cola and ice water" — but how great if he'd ordered some OJ, right? "Hi, I'm OJ, can I please have some OJ?" "Hey! The Juice needs some juice!"). Wow. We love this exclusive report, it makes us feel so close to him. Enjoy!*
ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT and THE INSIDER OBTAIN EXCLUSIVE DETAILS FROM O.J'S FLIGHT HOME TO FLORIDA
O.J. SIMPSON and his girlfriend have landed in Florida and only ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT and THE INSIDER have the details of his four hour and 20 minute flight.
O.J. flew coach on US Airways Flight 888 from Las Vegas to Fort Lauderdale, FL, sitting in seat 4D while his girlfriend Christie Prody sat in 4E. Both the former football star and his girlfriend boarded early. O.J.'s attorney, Yale Galanter, sat in 4C and had to board with the rest of the passengers. Passengers were laughing and joking with O.J. as they boarded the flight.
O.J. purchased a $3 snack pack for himself (the pack included chips, salsa, fruit bar, chocolate bar, cheese and breadsticks) and a $5 chicken caesar sandwich for his girlfriend and paid for the meal with a $50 bill. O.J. drank coca-cola and ice water, while Christie drank a small $5 bottle of red wine.
Christie brought her small black miniature Pomeranian on board in a dog carrier.
While in flight, O.J. got a Louis Vuitton duffel bag out of the overhead compartment, watched 'Ocean's Thirteen' and dozed, while his girlfriend requested a blanket and rested her head on his shoulder.
The flight landed at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport at 11:50 PM.
