Cooke, 78, a retired judge, said she was as baffled as everyone else about the strange things Selma was reportedly saying as she flipped out, including, "He burns my private parts. He won't let me eat or drink. He beats me. He's going to kill me."

"That was the result of the wine and the Ativan she took," Cooke insisted. "It's not even a strong drug, a lot of people take it before they get on airplanes, its an anxiety killer."

Asked about the exes' relationship, Cooke said, "I think she works very hard on it, I don't think it comes easily. They both work hard on it, and they have a nice little boy, he looks like very pretty don't you think?" Blair insisted the child had been wearing headphones and sleeping during her meltdown.

Blair's full statement on the incident was issued to Vanity Fair and reads as follows: said: "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. My son was with his Dad asleep with his headphones on, so there is that saving grace. I take this very seriously, and I apologize to all of the passengers and crew that I disturbed and am thankful to all of the people who helped me in the aftermath. I am a flawed human being who makes mistakes and am filled with shame over this incident. I am truly very sorry."
