Aubrey O'Day

I Have Serious

Mental Health Issues

EXCLUSIVE

0625_aubry_oday_airplane
Aubrey O'Day is a certified headcase ... so says one of her doctors, who issued the reality star an official medical document which allows her to bring her dogs on to an airplane.

A rep for Virgin America airlines tells TMZ ... the "Celebrity Apprentice" star was cleared to bring her 2 pets into the 1st class section of a flight this week ... because they are registered as "Emotional Support Animals."

So how does one get emotional support animal clearance? Ya gotta have a doctor write a letter ... stating you have mental issues.

According to the Virgin America website, the airline requires the passenger to produce a letter from a licensed mental health professional which substantiates the guest's disability-related need for the animal to accompany them in the aircraft cabin.

V.A. claims the letter must state that the passenger "has a mental health-related disability" ... and that having the animal accompany the passenger is necessary for his or her mental health.

The nature of O'Day's mental health issue is unclear.  We called the starlet for comment.
 
O'Day tweeted pics of the dogs enjoying themselves on the flight to San Francisco ... and the V.A. rep tells us she was "incredibly sweet and polite" ... and nothing short of a "great guest."

So far, no word back.

She is going to burn through the last few cents she's got pretty quick if she keeps wasting it on first class seats for her damn dogs.

What happens if the dogs get gassy? You bought an expensive first class ticket, the next thing you know, you're at 30,000 feet smellin' dog farts for four hours.

Mental health issue? It sound like plain anxiety to me. Maybe it makes her feel less anxious to fly when she has her little dogs with her. She didnt cause a problem for anyone so who cares?

It was obvious on the Apprentice, and every picture of her posted, her eyes are begging you to look at her. She needs constant stroking for her inflated ego.

to pretend to have a disability so you can bring your dogs on planes IS GROSS AND DISRESPECTFUL.....but is about right for her. and her doctor should have license taken away

We all knew she was Mental....So I guess this means her dogs do not have to go in a carrier under the seat. Now everyone with a German Shepard, go out and have you doctor write you a letter say that you dog is a comfort to you, book a flight and see how well this goes over in any class on the plane.

Heres one.... Leave the freaking dogs, cats, etc AT HOME when you are traveling in a public confined space others folks paid for just like you did. I am not allergic. I just do not want to travel around anybody's pet period. Not an pet hater just considerate of others who don't love my pet as I do. If you don't want the pet to travel via crate, then travel in your own personal car, or leave them at home.

What do you do if a dog is humping your leg? If he's a pitbull, you'd better wait until he's finished.
