Stories involving Richard Marx and newish wife Daisy Fuentes tamping down violent airline passengers over the skies of Southeast Asia serves as a celebrity refresher that Richard Marx is still writing contagious jingle music and former MTV VJ Daisy Fuentes is still making a fortune selling her clothing lines at mass retailers. That part is harder to believe than the hero’s tale Daisy Fuentes live Tweeted from the skies about Marx restraining an out of control passenger on their flight from Hanoi to Seoul. Southwest still routes it through Kansas City.
According to Fuentes, the flight crew was completely ill trained and inept at restraining the abusive and wildly gesticulating passenger. Dude simply wanted Finding Nemo with the Korean subtitles. Is that too much to ask? That’s when Marx stepped in took matters into his own hands with a combo physical domination and live Tweeting.
On our flight from Hanoi to Seoul a guy sitting in the next row from us got crazy & started attacking the flight attendants & passengers. When he started pushing the female staff and pulling them by the hair [Richard Marx] was the first to help subdue him. This went on for FOUR hrs. I feel horrible for the abuse the staff had to endure but no one was prepared for this. They never fully got control of him. They didn’t know how to use the taser & they didn’t know how to secure the rope around him (he got loose from their rope restraints 3 times). I’ll be posting some of the video after our next flight.
The photo of Marx holding the restraining rope is all you need to know about modern airline travel. Also, the flight attendant holding the taser like she once saw Tom Cruise do in a movie. If you think a hundred pound waitress is saving you from a petite Asian dude in glasses experiencing a bad acid trip, let alone four guys determined to go see Allah right this very minute, you’re kidding yourself. You better pray an 80’s soft rock singer is on board. Christopher Cross may be the only thing standing between you and death in the South China Sea.
