Wegmans pulled Alec Baldwin commercials following airplane controversy

Alec Baldwin’s antics aboard an American Airlines flight have gotten him grounded as a spokesman for a New York-based supermarket chain. A spokeswoman for Wegmans Food Markets tells Rochester media outlets that the company pulled television ads featuring Baldwin after some customers complained about his behavior that resulted in his being booted from a Dec. 6 flight at Los Angeles International Airport. Baldwin was removed from the New York-bound plane for refusing to turn off his cell phone.

The TV spots were filmed for the 2010 holiday season. The commercials were supposed to run again for three weeks last month but were pulled a week early, after Baldwin’s airline dustup. Baldwin was hired for the ads after he mentioned that his mother, who lives in the Syracuse area, is a loyal Wegmans customer.

Kim Kardashian is suing a publicist who once worked for her and is now implying on television that the reality star’s marriage to Kris Humphries was a sham. “It was obvious it was staged,” Jonathan Jaxson told Fox’s Good Day L.A. on Friday, while promoting his tell-all book about the pursuit of fame. “For me, it was fake because Kim said previously that she … didn’t want to get married weeks prior to the wedding itself.”

Jaxson also claimed that he worked with Kardashian in orchestrating a phony engagement to NFL star Reggie Bush in 2007 by arranging photographers to catch her shopping for a ring. “We turned it around and made it a media spectacular,” Jaxson said. “Never were they engaged.
