Journeys of the Rich and Famous

Who says you can’t tour the world like the stars? OK, so you probably can’t rent out the whole hotel or shut down the city for a private event, but we all could use a little VIP treatment now and then. Follow the example set by celebrities — whether you can afford that $1,000-a-night suite or not.

Josh Duhamel
Don't let the brooding good looks fool you, but Josh Duhamel made our list. The actor refused to turn off his BlackBerry, and he was escorted off an airplane last December. No one's above airplane safety protocol, Mr. Duhamel.

Kevin Smith
Traveling with Kevin Smith? Be prepared to share elbow room or catch a different flight. The movie director was thrown off a Southwest Airlines plane even after he bought 2 seats -- policy requires larger passengers buy 2 seats. Kevin was on standby, boarded a plane that had an available seat, but the captain would eventually oust him off.

Dave Chapelle
Think before you make travel plans with Dave Chapelle. While flying on a private jet, the comedian grabbed the pilot's arms and asked how long the flight would be. The pilot made an emergency landing in Pittsburgh after Chapelle freaked the crew out. Dave's publicist said he just had to use the bathroom. Sorry, Dave, but if a trip to the restroom results in an emergency landing, you're probably doing it wrong.

Paris Hilton
Keep a safe distance from Paris Hilton. You never know what might show up in her "friend's" purse. The celeb was busted for cocaine possesion in Las Vegas last August. At the World Cup in South Africa, she was arrested after marijauna was found in a purse she claimed belonged to a friend. The charges for the latter case were dropped.

Charlie Sheen
It's best if you steer clear of Charlie Sheen altogether. He's already started the New Year off in the tabloids, taking Vodka shots with 'female companions' in Las Vegas. Charlie's latest scandal comes a few months after the actor flipped out in the New York Plaza Hotel, forcing his paid trickster to lock herself in the bathroom.

Lindsay Lohan
You really can't travel with Lindsay Lohan because she's usually spending time in bars, behind bars or in rehab. Since 2007, Lindsay has been busted for 2 DUIs. Don't count on her to keep her travel documents straight either. In May 2010, the celeb told a judge she missed her court date because someone stole her passport after a trip to Cannes. It wasn't because she was partying into the wee hours of the morning?
