Us WeeklyJennifer Aniston revealed she’s a card-carrying member of the Mile High Club on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show that aired on Wednesday, November 30.
During a game of “Never Have I Ever” with the host, the Friends star confessed to hooking up on an airplane — and then some.

Aniston, 48, hesitated briefly before lifting up her “I have” paddle when Ellen DeGeneres asked if she’d “joined the Mile High Club.”

“You with me on that one?” she asked the comedian, who admitted: “On that one, I’m with you.”
But it didn’t end there, as the pair hilariously took it a few steps further. “Never have I ever with the pilot?” asked DeGeneres.

“Oh, God,” Aniston replied, before holding up her “‘I have” paddle again — and keeping it up as the host continued, “And the co-pilot. And the flight attendant.”

Gives new meaning to “cockpit,” am I right?

This has never, ever appealed to me because planes are disgusting. And doing it with both the pilot and the co-pilot seems just a little dangerous. But maybe that’s the main reason they invented autopilot.

Of course, Jen has done OK for herself and it very well could have been a private jet, where this kind of thing is much easier, I’m guessing.

If this is your kind of thing, there are actually entire airlines just for people who want to have sex in the sky. I learn something new every day writing these posts.

— Former NFL running back Joe McKnight was shot and killed on Thursday in New Orleans during a road rage incident.

Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand said in a news conference McKnight was standing outside his car when he was fatally shot by Ronald Gasser.

“The only thing we know right now, everything else is conjecture, is that Mr. Gasser did in fact shoot Mr. McKnight,” Normand said, adding: “We will release additional details when we get through with the interviews.”

Normand said Gasser was in custody and was being questioned. A number of witnesses are also being questioned.

McKnight played three seasons for the Jets and one for the Chiefs. He played in the Canadian Football League this season.

He is the second ex-NFL player to die in New Orleans this year in a road rage incident. In April, former Saints player Will Smith was shot after an altercation with another driver.

McKnight’s former teams and teammates expressed their condolences on Twitter.

Thomas said his relationship with Jordan is “friendly.”

Indiana upset North Carolina, 76-67.
