Raquel Welchs Cleavage Sets off Alarms at Chicago’s O’hare Airport

Icon Actress Raquel Welch, in town this week to promote her new book,Raquel: Beyond the Cleavage, found herself in a bit of a squeeze with Transportation Security Administration agents at O’Hare.

She got no special treatment and officials questioned the actress in a glass office in full view of other passengers. Welch’s spokeswoman says the metal supports in the actress’s Dolce & Gabbana bustier set off the airport metal detectors, subjecting the 69-year-old Welch to a pat-down in front of other passengers.

No weapons found, Welch was allowed to board her return flight to Los Angeles.

“She probably isn’t going to fly in a bustier any more,” says Miss Welch’s spokesman of the incident.
