Andy Cohen Stuck on Delta Flight to Nowhere:
“Watch What Happens Live” host Andy Cohen was one of many passengers who spent hours on a Delta flight to Paris but wound up getting a round-trip flight to New York.
About half way through the flight, and three-and-a-half hours after takeoff, someone broke the plane’s toilets and instead of continuing on to France, the pilot turned around and flew back to New York. The plane wound up landing in JFK 20 minutes later than it would have if they plane had continued on to Paris and arrived at its scheduled time. That meant passengers spent over seven hours on a plane to wind up back where they started.
Cohen documented the trip to nowhere on social media. “We were an hour outside of Europe, somebody pooped or put something down the toilet that didn't go, broke the toilets. Guess where we are? Back at JFK” he shared.
As for why the pilot didn’t just continue on to France, reports suggest it was because Delta had more staff to fix the toilets in the U.S. than in France or anywhere else they could have landed.

Thomas Markle Fashion Line Bogus:

Tom Arnold Doubles Down On Trump N-Word Tapes:
While President Trump has said that “Apprentice” producer Mark Burnett told him there were no tapes from the show with him saying the N-word, comedian Tom Arnold continues to insist they exist.
During a somewhat out there appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night, Arnold says he saw the tape through friends that worked on “The Apprentice,” describing it as a compilation of clips of Trump from the NBC reality program. And Arnold, who is searching for the tapes for his own Viceland show “The Hunt for the Trump Tapes,” insists there are more out there.
“If you could see one day of Donald Trump on that set, one full day, you’ll realize that’s what’s going on in the White House,” Arnold said. “He’s incompetent; he is racist. He sexually harasses people.”
Arnold also accused Burnett of protecting Trump by not releasing the tape, saying that the president is the producer’s “best friend.” If the tape does exist, it is owned by MGM, and Arnold adds that an MGM board member told him they were instructed not to discuss the alleged tape.

Gym opens early for Mark Wahlberg:
While most people would dread having to get up super early to workout, Mark Wahlberg isn’t one of them. In fact, getting his exercise in is so important, he even got a gym to open extra early just for him.
It seems the Equinox gym in Manhattan’s Columbus Circle opened at 4 am especially for the actor. “They opened an hour early. He arrived at 3:45 a.m. and was extremely gracious to the staff for coming in early,” a source tells the “New York post.” He was giving hugs and fist bumps all around.”
Of course, Mark had the gym all to himself for his daily workout, and left before anybody else arrived. He even shared video of his early morning session on his Instagram story, noting, “It’s 5:15 and it’s still dark out.”
