This just in from Gawker.com: Minka Kelly, the former Friday Night Lights star who is engaged to Yankee player Derek Jeter, is currently in the air, en route from JFK to LAX. Evidently, the Minkster freaked out because she was not allowed to hold her dog on her lap during take off. She went so far as to...wait for it...wait for it...call Derek Jeter and ask him to talk to the flight crew. Another passenger on the flight tipped off Gawker. He wrote, "on Delta flight 2863...Minka Kelly caused such a f**king scene about her dog not being able to be on seat w/her that the pilot had to come out before we even left the gate. She called boyfriend Derek Jeter [for] him to try to rationalize with the seven flight attendants it took to calm her down. crying. tears. etc." Wow. I don't know about you, but I am horrified. I mean, what kind of world are we living in if a hot chick and a Yankee player can't get FAA regulations reversed? I mean, it's not like he plays for the Red Sox. Jeez.
