I am sorry this post took so long, but I needed to make sure it did not reveal too much because it is so sensitive. There are always allegations flying back and forth about what some celebrity has given to another celebrity, i.e Hepatitis (see Pam Anderson from Tommy Lee), or an STD, etc., but it something altogether different when it is HIV. When it is HIV, almost no one wants to come forward as this posting will show.

I have a client ( B list - a few television shows, never top billed and some made for tv movies where she was top billed) -- who came to me when she wanted to file for divorce. For some reason, I rarely get the husbands who come to me, just generally the wives. Anyway, she came to me and she wanted to get a divorce because her husband had been cheating on her. It was not the first time, but she was just tired of all the lies and she felt he was not honest with her about anything from the time they began dating. Of course, this self-realization about truthfulness did not hit it her until after they were married. They had a pre-nup and it was airtight and so she was only going to get what the pre-nup allowed which was not much, but I figured we might be able to argue for a little more support or an additional piece of property and he might give in, just to have us go away and to keep the legal bills to a minimum.

She ( "W") thought his cheating was confined to just a fling here and there. There is no way to describe him without some sort of revelation so lets just call him a businessman. ("B") It turns out that B enjoyed swingers clubs, and other hedonistic pursuits as much as he could and was not really selective in either his partners or their gender. As these revelations came out, W went to her doctor because she had not been feeling well and was dealing with incredible levels of stress. While there she decided to get a full bloodwork done as well to find out if she had contracted anything. Well there is a saying when you are getting bloodwork done, that no news is good news. The trouble was she got lots of news and it was not pretty. She had not only contracted HIV from the soon to be ex, but found out she was pregnant as well by the soon to be ex.

At first B denied he was either the father of the child or the person who had infected W, but soon caved. He admitted he had known he was HIV positive, but did not tell W because he did not think he would ever give it to her because they had not had sex in so long. One night, they both got drunk at a party and when they got home had sex for the first time in almost a year and it was at that time W became pregnant and HIV positive.

In order to keep all of this out of the press, not only for his sake and for W's, there was a very large settlement that at least somewhat made up for the tragedy that he caused W. W continues to work although she is probably more of a C lister now because she would rather not be in the public eye as much and she thinks that just enjoying life is probably the best thing for her.

I know you have questions about the child and if W gave birth or had an abortion, but that is just going to have to remain a mystery.

Ellen Barkin/Ron Perlman?

Hmmmmm, this sounds like the hush hush marriage of John Cusack and his wife (the young woman from the TV show with Don Johnson) She was forced to have an abortion and Lord knows he is the biggest cheater around (and also quite the pig from what I hear).

Valerie Bertinelli

Valerie Bertinelli was top billed on the short-lived series 'American Cafe'. Good guess though.

Femme Cafe said...

HIV? oh my gosh... what amount of money would be enough to ease that kind of pain and betrayal?

Hmm good guess Valerie Bertinelli...

I hope the kid was born. There are ways to have healthy babies from HIV infected mothers... I believe if she didn't abort the baby he/she must be HIV negative by now....

poor woman

I think this person is in fact Pam Anderson. She just filed for divorce and claimed to miscarry a baby. I think more like abortion.

Anonymous said...

Helen Hunt is a good guess - - but she's been in films. I was thinking Bertanelli as well.

Anonymous said...

If it is Pam, is it plausible that she could have miscarried due to the HIV?

Also, didn't Kid Rock visit her on set after she lost the baby?

Valerie Bertanelli

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eddie_Van_Halen

Since the 2004 tour, Eddie Van Halen has mostly disappeared from the public eye, with the exception of occasional appearances such as the 14th annual Elton John Academy Awards

he tour also made clear that Van Halen had fallen into the trap of alcoholism once again, and he has been reported as performing in an alcoholic stupor by bassist Michael Anthony, despite being told not to touch alcohol or cigarettes by his doctor after his cancer trouble

He battled alcoholism, lost his mother to cancer, was treated himself twice for tongue/mouth cancer, had hip replacement surgery, and separated from Valerie Bertinelli

no Helen Hunt...didn't she win an Oscar but was for sure nominated? This John Cusack thing, however, has piqued my interest.

It's Kellie Martin.

fuck the pre nup he gave her HIV!!
she should take the fucker for all his money. Just goes to show you cant trust anyone even your husband.

Anonymous said...

it can't be pam and kid rock, cause they did NOT have a pre-nup. According to this http://www.smh.com.au/news/people/forever-lasts-four-months/2006/11/28/1164476168281.html

What about Kathy Griffin? Her husband was an internet businessman, and I heard their divorce was not pleasant....

This is so horrible that I don't what to know who it is.
By "outing" the horrible husband, the (ex-)wife will be suffering even more!
Hasn't she suffered enough?

Anonymous said...

this is just sad and nauseating and kind of makes me want to cry. how terrible for this woman and possible child. to be betrayed like that by your husband, I can't even imagine. though i don't know who she is, my thoughts are with her.

Roseanne?

Definitely agree that this is about Eddie Van Halen and Valerie Bertinelli. Google "Eddie Van Halen HIV" and the you'll see that the rumors are out there... would certainly (and very sadly) explain his deathly, gaunt look that can't be from a cancer he says he's cured of.

good mentions all likely possiblities the actress who poped into my mind when reading this was GA

GA? Gillian Anderson?

John Cusack married Jodi Lyn O'Keefe

GA

She filed the paperwork per se? but there was a written settlement agreement.

Oops, I meant to write "pro se". The facts seem like a pretty good fit for Bertinelli, especially with the long separation.

Tracey Gold

Tracey Gold! That's a pretty good guess. Denise Richards? Tracey Gold is a good guess tho.

Gillian Anderson.

She just had a baby who spent three weeks in the hospital and she's not divorced from her husband, who has/had a reputation for swingers clubs and sleeping around. But, she says the baby is her new boyfriend's. A paternity test is rumored.

Anonymous said...

I don't think it's Gillian, because she and her estranged husband live in the UK, and it doesn't make sense that she would have a lawyer in CA handle the divorce, IMO.

Also, she had only been married to Julian Ozanne for 9 months at the time of separation, so the story about how they hadn't had sex in over a year doesn't quite make sense.

Anonymous said...

Ah, I apologize, GA and her husband had been married for 16 months, according to IMDB. Hmm...

Anonymous said...

Denise Richards isnt really a nobody anymore and there is no way in hell Richie Sambora would date her if she had HIV.

And Im hoping that Heather Locklear isnt stupid enough to be married to two horrible human beings - but she's prety big too.

Bertinelli and Van Halen were married for almost 20 years, could that follow the timeline? And now, Van Halen will only play music for porn movies - NO JOKE!!! I mean this might make alot of sense and whole lot of tv movies. If so, thats horrible!! Really, its horrible for anyone.

It is SO Christina Applegate! She hit it big in her teens on "Married, With Children" and now does the occasional movie ("Anchorman" and that piece of shit stewardess movie with Gwyneth). Not really a big star, though. She filed for divorce from Jonathon Schaech last year (the hot guy from "That Thing You Do"). And I know she lives in Malibu cuz I've seen her.

Anonymous said...

Shaech filed for divorce in December of 2005. He was represented by Laura Wasser, who also represents Ent's BFF Spears in her split from Federline.

Neal Raymond Hersh signed Applegate's response, available here: http://cdn.digitalcity.com/tmz_documents/060301_applegate.pdf.

Tori Spelling? How long was she married to her first husband?

Anonymous said...

Denise is pretty much C list now and doesn't this echo the rumors a few months ago when she thought CS might've exposed her to HIV and threatened to kill her, etc.

The Cusack thing does give me pause. I hope it's not the case.

Bullshit. Logs are kept of postings and so are IP addresses. No "lawyer", entertainment or otherwise is going to post such sensitive information about a client. It would be a "legal" suicide.

The fact that anyone even responded to this is laughable.

Someone's looking for hits on their site. What a sad way to do it.

i love this site have to point everyone to it.

Ent: I emailed a guess for this BI. It's totally off. :S

I remember a while ago, everyone was saying that this was Valerie Bertinelli. So sad. She still works on that TVLAND show Hot In Cleveland, but she's not as big as I guess she once was. Sadness...
