That’s the kind of day that really sucks.
According to reports, the 43-year-old actress was returning with her family from a holiday in Cancun when she mixed alcohol with a prescription drug.
One report said Blair was seen nursing a glass of wine before she began yelling alarming statement including: ”He burns my private parts. He won’t let me eat or drink,” and “He beats me. He’s going to kill me.”
Blair's four-year-old son Arthur Saint and ex-boyfriend, his father Jason Bleick, were also on board the flight, but happily were otherwise occupied when the alleged outburst occurred.
Today Selma apologised for her behaviour, throwing herself at the public's feet in a plea for mercy.
“I made a big mistake yesterday. After a lovely trip with my son and his Dad, I mixed alcohol with medication, and that caused me to black out and led me to say and do things that I deeply regret,” she told Vanity Fair.

"My son was with his Dad asleep with his headphones on, so there is that saving grace. I take this very seriously, and I apologise to all of the passengers and crew that I disturbed and am thankful to all of the people who helped me in the aftermath," she said.
But you know what, Selma? You don't need to apologise.
Sure, it might make sense for you to explain what the hell happened. Get in front of the wild speculation. That's just good sense. And good for your career too.
But apologise? You downed a few first class champagnes and then took a sleeping pill. It's crazy common. Not sensible. But crazy common.
