Safe? Air Marshal Too Busy Picking Up Owen Wilson to Protect Plane

By Debbie Schlussel

Federal Air Marshals are livid, and they’ve contacted me regarding this story that puts them in a bad light.  One of their own was busy–on the taxpayer dime–picking up Owen Wilson, instead of protecting the plane.  And it worked . . . for her.  Federal Air Marshal Jade Duell just had Owen Wilson’s baby.  Cha-ching!


Federal Air Marshal/Baby Mama Jade Duell Too Busy Having Fun w/ Owen Wilson to Keep Plane Safe

Owen met Jade Duell, a U.S. air marshal, while en route to film How Do You Know with Reese Witherspoon last year on a flight from L.A. to Washington, D.C.

Several Federal Air Marshals told me it’s against the rules to get celebrities’ phone numbers and try to pick up passengers . . . while they are supposed to be protecting the plane from Islamic terrorists.  Jade Duell wasn’t put in First Class, courtesy of the federal government, to find a famous boyfriend who can pay gargantuan child support and make her set for life.  She was in First Class to look for suspicious people trying to endanger the plane and use it as a weapon.

Said one Federal Air Marshal:

Screw being a Senior Federal Air Marshal …. I’m gonna find me a mooooovie star!

As the Air Marshals told me, male Federal Air Marshals would never get away with this.  They’d lose their jobs.  But Duell, a female and apparently Asian, is a “minority” on two counts.  And they believe she is getting special treatment, all while their reputations as vigilant security on flights is being dragged through the mud in entertainment media story after story about Duell having met Wilson in First Class while she was supposed to be protecting a plane. A Federal Air Marshal notes:

If this was one of us (a dude), we would be shown the door so fast it might cause a black hole due to appear.

And the Air Marshals have a point.  As you’ll recall, a few years ago, I wrote about a male Federal Air Marshal who was a fan of the ABC anti-male yenta hag-fest, “The View” (that should have been enough to take away his man-card . . . and his FAM badge).   He gave his name and real job identity to Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Joy Behar, even though he knew they are airhead blabbermouths who wouldn’t use discretion. That very day, Hasselbeck blabbed his name, cover story, seat location, and flight on national TV. After I wrote about it, that Air Marshal was investigated by his agency. For now, there’s nothing happening to Duell for her obvious indiscretion.

I have my doubts about the effectiveness of female Federal Air Marshals to begin with. They aren’t strong, and can’t hold down a terrorist.

And, now, we know they are just simply too busy trying to get in the pants of–and get a payday from–the movie star in seat 1B. Memo to Jade Duell and other female Federal Air Marshals: your job is to guard the plane, not Owen Wilson. Your job is to guard the cockpit, not Owen Wilson’s . . . well, you get the point.

We have enough reason to know we’re less safe in the skies than we were before 9/11. Now, we’ll have to worry about the Federal Air Marshal–if there is even one on the plane–and whether she’s looking for the suspicious eyes of evil-doers or too busy looking into the eyes of Owen Wilson.

I agree that it is a scary website, certainly – the message right after the one you mentioned, saying I guess we’ll know in a couple of months is another pretty good sign people knew what was up. I’m just glad some benevolent fans who really cared heard about it, and then warned Jade to stop posting so much personal information on Facebook. I think that site shows she needed to be more careful. If Owen values his privacy, and he does want to stay together with her, part of me wishes I could wave a magic wand so he would never know about any of that. It can’t be a good feeling to know that she was telling people so much (let alone the question of whether a FAM should have been posting those travel plans), and posting Blackberry messages between them, and that her friends were there encouraging all the attention on that site because they were excited about the situation and dropping hints to strangers about “in a couple of months.” It adds to the impression, accurate or not, that he was being scammed or manipulated. I would rather see him happy enjoying some peace of mind. (At least there’s been progress made in this relationship compared to previous ones. I remember in about November of 2007 he was with a model named Le Call, and a group of models who had worked with her posted a bunch of horrible attack messages at a gossip site called The Evil Beet. Then her family members posted trying to defend her, but in the process, they spilled a bunch of family secrets and tried to explain her behavior by saying she’s a very troubled girl because of what her family is like, and she’s beautiful so she can do those things. It was a prime example of how not to handle a relationship with a celebrity, and I genuinely felt bad for them both. At least the people who have defended Jade here didn’t spill any unfortunate family past. I just think it would really help if the family stops communication with the tabloids, as someone else above noted. Ironically, both Le and Jade were mentioned in the tabloid press as having keyed cars when they were angry with former lovers and friends; hopefully they don’t do that anymore. If Owen and Jade stay together I really do hope they will be happy.)

Bravo John Q!!

OMG!!!! Jealous much? How unenlightened, you people. Now THAT’S something to fear. Go Jade and congratulations to you both!! You are one of our best and we’re happy to have you. Many of you have opinions about something of which you are clueless. Anyone here know her? work with her? I thought not. She’d have anyone’s back. Y’all are about stabbing one in the back. Nice. Debbie……Jade is so far superior to you. Your lies are unattractive. People…..even the supposed FAM quotes stink of jealousy. The number of male FAMS, usually married, drooling and picking up celebrities or any willing female on a flight is staggering. So take the J factor out and and write your report about THAT! Thanks Jade, for keeping my family and friends safe when they travel. Let these people hope for a man to protect them on their flights. Maybe the guy in the third row with big muscles…..is he a FAM? Y’all will never know.

How embarrassing for you that you posted that right before the latest news about what a crazy, conniving, unfaithful hag and whore she is. Obviously she’s not a hero or keeping anyone “safe”. You are deluded. It’s obvious she has used and misused everyone she ever “loved”, and you’re in for a shock if you think you’re going to benefit or be included in her new lifestyle. She’s not worth defending. She will never be a FAM again anyway – she left the job a few months ago and she’s never looking back. So much for her having a higher calling to protect deranged citizens like you.

Looks like it’s all over for Jade and Owen!!

Well, Jade Golddigger got her payday and crazy ol’ Owen got to shell out the big bucks for the next eighteen years.

Have fun being a single mom, Jade!!

Reading back over this story some 8 months later,I was struck by the fact that with hind sight; oh what a great thing! that it was very clear that duell was very cleverly establishing a time line.Those tweets and face book started very close to ku time. Wilson may well have thought,wrongly as it happened that he was on to a pretty safe bet for keeping things quiet, due to her job.Its long been known that high profile he will be seen with la blondes privatly he prefers non caucasions as does his brother.What did surprise was that at no point did he make any attempt to defend her or in fact in numerous pr ops for his films even mention her by name. How very insulting.As far back as march NE was casting doubt on wether they would be
living together in the future! who ever really thought they did anyway.What is becoming very clear is this kid is just a commodity to both of them for Wilson as a pr tool to help boost and lenthen his flaging career, and to her as a very good little earner. This kid will be pimmped out to any locretive ad deal that comes along.
Wilson is well known to be mentally unstable ,whats duell’s
exuse for having a child that may inherit same. These two are
both without morals or princles.
