Kelly denies he got drunk on a plane and said “Do you know who I am?”
The Apprentice 2 had some fun on a Sunday trip from Seattle to Newark. According to Page Six, a non-anonymous woman named Jennifer Novak who was sitting in first class with Kelly says he began “knocking back Jack and Cokes before the plane got off the ground.” Then, when the flight attendants told him there was no more, he “went into the first-class pantry area and began opening and shutting cabinets and searching the carts and drawers, insisting that he ‘knew they had more’ and were hiding it from him.” Best of all, Kelly asked Novak, “Do you know who I am?” Apparently, she did, as she took her story to Page Six. Kelly, too, talks to the paper, saying he had “maybe three drinks … I guess this is something that you have to get used to when you’re in the public light.” He says Novak “was shushing everybody, telling everyone to be quiet. She asked the guy next to me to quiet down so her baby could sleep. He could have easily said, ‘Do you know who this is?’ I did not say that to her. I do not know what her agenda is, but that is not what occurred.”
