Ralph Lauren (he of the plush, lush Downton Abbey ads) woke up this morning to find that his niece, 41-year old Jennifer Lauren was arrested in Ireland when she blew up in an air rage incident on January 6 flying from Barcelona to NY.
Apparently, Lauren was found crying when it appeared that her seat back would not recline (OK, we can relate...but wait, there's more). When a flight attendant tried to help, Lauren screamed at her to "Get the F--K out of my face!" She also called the poor woman a "Fat, unhappy blonde (expletive)." We're betting the expletive was the C-word, because another F--K would be redundant.
Many more expletives followed, during which the high-end jewelry designer got so out of control the flight had to be diverted to Ireland. Once pried out of the aircraft and read her rights, Lauren said to the Irish law enforcement officials, "Can you say that in English, please?" (Is she emulating Lord Grantham here?).
Whereupon the good Irish proceeded to arraign Ms. Lauren in a pub because all of the available courthouses were filled.
Here's mud in your eye, Jennifer! Erin Go Bragh!
