John Rich booted off plane for being too drunk

Country singer John Rich had an Eastside Cannery gig Dec. 3 to give the cowboys in town what they want. Apparently what he wanted was a few pops. Reports online say Rich was booted off a Southwest Airlines flight Dec. 4 for being too drunk to fly. It was a 10:50 a.m. jaunt. Save a horse, ride a cocktail.

Among the 44,000 runners of the Las Vegas Rock ’n’ Roll Marathon Dec. 4 was Kate Gosselin. She finished in just fewer than five hours. Friends apparently must have told her that Jon Gosselin would be chasing her up and down the Strip.
