Excuse me, dahrlings, but...

Talk About A Faux Pass

I'm given to understand, dahrlings, that last night a confluence of forces that included 'bed', 'open jaw video camera' and 'Jean-Marc Eustache' were at play in an area no bigger than a hotel room. 

I don't make this stuff up, my little pillows. There's enough tattle in travel to fill the gaping maw of any self-respecting gossip and, you know me Pumpkins, I find no joy in embellishments,

To this already precarious situation we add Open Jaw dinkette #2 who has all the social graces of a bull shark.

She is positively giddy at the site of a man near a bed and, without any preamble, announces to the gentleman that lying down on it makes a fabulous photo op, don't you think?

Well… apparently, Monsieur Eustache was seen to turn an "indefinable bilious colour" and blurted: "The bed? Let's be serious, Nina." 

Ouch. Talk about a faux pass.

Did she let it go at that, dahrlings? The poor misguided creature then tried to 'explain'. "Oh, I just want to make Ivanna jealous with a picture of us sitting there. Just sitting. Ha!" 


Being the consummate professional, the CEO of Transat simply gets on with the interview.

I suppose in his position women (and I use the term lightly here) throwing themselves at him is part of a day's work. I just hope there are no nightmares. These memories can come back like a bad meal.

To all Transat employees, Open Jaw congratulates you on the occasion of your 30th anniversary. We sincerely apologize for the embarrassment. She's been grounded.

See the interview for yourselves, dahrlings.

Ivanna Gabbalot

Ivanna Gabbalot Columnist

Part legend, part myth, all woman: Ivanna Gabbalot is OJ’s gossip columnist and considers herself the industry’s conscience. Equally annoying to Open Jaw management and inflated egos in C-suites everywhere, Ivanna touches topics others fear to tackle.
