Nigella Lawson denied entry into U.S.

The U.S. has denied TV chef Nigella Lawson entry because of her drug use admissions. She went to Heathrow Airport in London to board a flight to Los Angeles, to appear as a judge on The Taste, and was denied boarding because the U.S. denied her entry.
Here's the news story in the U.K. Daily Mail newspaper:

      What's wrong with who? Which are the people you are referring to?

      1. re: Teague

        My conclusion on what's wrong is the fact that people like to jump to conclusions with no factual support.

      2. They probably could've just as likely banned her looking sickly emaciated in that photo.

        I feel for her.

        No joy in seeing others downtrodden. For whatever reason.

            I am not trying to infuse politics into this thread.

            I also have read that Sasha and Malia Obama are big Bieber fans. Makes sense, age wise at least. . . (don't ask me about my new kids on the block fan crush way back when please. . .)

              Yeah, I've had enough of the Biebs myself.

                Seems to be some Because We Can law. Russell Brand, Lily Allen and Amy Winehouse have all been fairly recently denied entry for drug use, but it seems more an inconvenience than anything.

                  Amy Winehouse died two yrs ago so I doubt that.

                    I did say "fairly recently". 2008.

                  2. re: ennuisans

                    We don't mind you not letting Russel and Lily in as long as you promise to keep Piers Morgan.

                2. Shocking. Did coke and pot in front of her kids! I won't say anything so this dosnt get edited but wow my opinion of her just changed alot.
