It’s not even about saving money at this point, it’s the entitlement and showing off your network. Rich people are truly pathological.

they did give her her own pass, and she asked for more passes for her sister's family which is what they said they usually don't do. they also still gave it to her, it just didn't work at the gate and the one exec she called didn't care.

Ginnifer Goodwin has talked about how she made it part of her contract for Once Upon A Time to get membership into that secret club thing at Disney. Not exactly the same thing as tickets, but she was just someone they wanted on a show at that point, not someone who had made them insane amounts of money for years upon years.

Was she the one that told the story? Did she think it'd make her look good and badass? Rich people are fucking wild, I hate them.

I see no issue with this... men would have done the same, if not more. We see these dudes throwing fits about MEMES right now, so in my opinion, it is what it is

unless you're white, you should be greedy because it's empowering. shonda being mad her high-level exec contact refused to get her an extra $154 ticket made her ditch her hundreds of million of dollars Disney deal for a 300 million dollars Netflix deal. an inspiration for us all.
