Soap star Brian slips up

American soap actor Brian Presley is the latest celebrity to be felled by the powers of social media. When married man Presley sat next to model Melissa Stetton on a flight on Wednesday he began to hit on her, according to Stetton. Unbeknownst to Presley, a distinctly unimpressed Stetton decided to live tweet his fairly pathetic chat-up routine to her thousands of followers. Via his boasting, the actor provided enough details about his career that Stetten’s followers were able to Google him, find him on IMDB, and provide Stetten with details about his life, including the fact that he’s a devoted family man (at least in news interviews). The actor also allegedly drank “three Heinekens” on the domestic red-eye flight out of Los Angeles, despite having told Christianity Today in April that he attends “weekly AA meetings with a group of awesome, godly men from my church,” pointed out The Daily Mail. By the time that red-eye flight landed, Presley’s humiliating misdeeds had already gone viral.

Presley’s outing ” is an amazing example of the new Little Brother world that we live in, in which encounters that we think are private can become public unexpectedly and dramatically,” said Forbes.

“Tip for modern adulterers: If you’re planning to cheat on your wife of 10 years by awkwardly hitting on the model seated next to you on your flight out of Los Angeles, make sure she isn’t live-tweeting the entire miserable experience to her 13,000 followers,” said the ohno-polio Tumblr blog.

What love rat Brian allegedly said

Here’s Stetton’s live-tweet report of the cringe encounter:
‘No thanks, Brian, the actor sitting next to me on this flight talking about his role with Kurt Russell and his spiritual beliefs’
‘Brian is now talking about how he is an artist and believes everything happens for a reason, like how we’re brought together on this flight’
‘Apparently Brian is a straightforward guy from Oklahoma who booked a McDonalds commercial when he was 19 and then God took over from there’
‘Brian hates closed minded people but loves artists in the industry, and just called this one-sided conversation a “collabo” between us’
‘Oh wow, Brian grew up on a ranch with uber conservative parents but his stance on gay marriage is ZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzz….’
‘Brian just said “like us sitting here right now, talking about where we’re from, it’s like divine interception.” right, interception’
‘Brian asked what I do for a living. I said model. He said “oh I love meeting other artists like myself”
‘Brian just finished working on a movie with Matthew McConaughey who inspired his “craft” immensely being a small town boy like himself’
‘Yes, this is BRIAN! RT @Pat_Healy: @MelissaStetten Is this him by any chance?’
‘He said he was engaged for 6 months but broke it off! RT @Pat_Healy: @MelissaStetten Ask him how his wife Erin and son Jackson are’
‘Brian likes going back home to Oklahoma to inspire the less fortunate to become “artists” like himself’
‘Brian just took his Heineken in a plastic cup into the bathroom. Will report back shortly’
‘Holy s***, Brian came out of the bathroom WITHOUT his wedding ring on. Watch out Virgin America, you’ve got a real charmer on board.’
‘Brian is back, he just ordered the chicken salad sandwich’
‘Brian’s been looking for the headphone jack for 10 minutes’
‘Brian asked if I saw Book of Mormon. I said yes. He said he wanted to get into theater when he was a rodeo boy back in ‘Homa (oklahoma)’
‘Brian said he was engaged to another actress but it didn’t work out because they didn’t “mesh well” together’
‘Holy s**t. He’s had 3 heinekens and is wasted. Sober? Hardly. RT @PlaidMcPlatypus: did you say he was drinking beer?’
‘Did I just ruin Brian Presley’s life via twitter?’
‘Who opens the windows on a redeye flight? Brian does. F***ing Brian’
