The blind items are below, but first another link which I am going to make permanent because it is so good and I know everyone who reads this site, will love this article. Nerve. com has compiled the 40 Best Celebrity Rumors ever. What could be better than that? From The Saved By the Bell cast dying in a car wreck to Oprah being gay and Anna Wintour pining away for Bob Marley. I had forgotten so many of these and now they are all back. Peter Smith did an incredible job of compiling all these rumors. Enjoy.
I did add labels to all the previous posts which makes navigating through everything slightly easier. I am working on adding links but it is time consuming so it will take a few days. A special thank you goes out to Captain Disco for the HTML code to make it possible.
For this afternoon we are moving away from the beautiful LA to the just as lovely, although MUCH colder NYC for some blind items.

So imagine if you will a 4-story walk up (for those of you not familiar with the term, think a building with 3 apartments and you have to "walk up" to get to the upper floors) in NYC that is in need of a little repair but that has become the home of celebrities within the three units in the building.
One of the neighbors is a celebrity couple with a new baby. The wife has a brother who is an actor who is friends with a bicyclist who is friends with an actor who loves hanging out shirtless.
Seriously, you should have that part by now.
So anyway, a new celebrity moves into the building. An A-lister as both a producer and actress. This new neighbor wants everyone to call her "Chris." NEVER call her by her real name. There is no such person who lives in the building. The new neighbor is just a normal person named "Chris." Look past the fact that most normal people do not have an assistant living with them 24 hours a day constantly reminding people that only "Chris" lives there. I guess you could look past the fact that the actress sits on her front steps outside typing away on her laptop, smoking, chatting with passerby, but is just "Chris" when she goes back inside.

Actual situation and conversation–

There is a play date with a neighbor and the celebrity couple who live on the 4th floor. Neighbor has a huge stroller and does not want to carry it up four flights of stairs. Knock on door of the first floor apartment of our reclusive celebrity.

Assistant answers the door -

"Excuse me, is there anyway I can leave this stroller down here in the foyer. As you can see it is heavy and I am already carrying this 2 year old. So would you ask _______ if it is ok?"

The assistant replies, "there is no one who lives here by that name. Chris is the person who lives here and would have to make that decision. You will have to ask Chris."

"May I please ask her then?" asked the woman carrying the now screaming 2 year old.

"Chris is not here right now, and I do not know when she will be back."

With that the door slams shut, and our neighbor left the stroller downstairs anyway. Good for her.

I was going to save this second one tomorrow, but I am feeling festive, even though I know you are going to spend all day reading the Top 40. I am too, so don't worry.

What married female pop star keeps coming back to her same basic hairstyle, look, and appearance because when she changes it, her husband wanders off to find a transsexual who has that look?

but who is "chris"? some psycho im sure.

meme said...

Jake G?

Lily said...

Yep, Maggie for sure.

RebeccainNYC said...

I am totally absolutley positive it is Parker Posey!!!!!!!! I saw an article recently about her moving into a new bldg with her child (?) and other celebrities with children who werent friends but now sometimes meet on the stoop.....

Anonymous said...

carey Hart for #2?

lily said...

I think "Chris" is Drew Barrymore. She is an a-list actress and producer and lives part time in Manhatten.

ladyoblada said...

The last one sounds like Christina Aguilera.

drew barrymore doesn't live in a walk up! it's parker posey I heard the same thing.....

Anonymous said...

Maggie G for the 1st blind item... her bro Jake is friends with Matthew McConaughey and he's always shirtless....
"chris" part of the story I've heard it before from laineygossip.com can't remember the actresses name.....

the pop star with wondering husband I think is Madonna.

allisa said...

Yeah you have to think someone on the same $ level as maggie and peter.......

lily said...

Pink for #2?

lily said...

Parker Posey is not a producer, much less an a list producer.

Anonymous said...

definately Pink: Carey Hart is her hubbie

Anonymous said...

The couple is absoloutley maggie and peter (he refers to her actor brother jake who hangs out with Lance Armstrong and Matthew McConnaughey). But who is the crazy neighbor? My first instinct was Penny Marshall but I dont think she lives in NYC....hmmmm.........

Anonymous said...

I think the celebrity couple is Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard. The celebrity named "Chris" is definitely Jodie Foster. She's always pictured outside a NYC apartment smoking, typing on a laptop, and talking on her cellphone.

I thought Maggie and Peter bought a place in Brooklyn (Like Michelle and Heath)

Neighbors in Jodie Foster's West Village building say the actress is unfriendly and they miss the apartment's former occupant, Ricki Lake. Foster apparently turns her back to neighbors rather than just saying " hello."

lily said...

According to Wikipedia, Maggie resides in Manhatten:

Gyllenhaal has been in a relationship with actor Peter Sarsgaard since 2002. They announced their engagement in April 2006.[10] They have a daughter, Ramona, born on October 3, 2006, and reside in Manhattan[1].

Christina or Madonna

Jodie Foster is a good guess!!!!

Gwen Stefani has had the same look for ages as well.

Isn't Jodie Foster's real name Alicia Christian Foster? The Chris would make sense.

Anonymous said...

Jodie doesn't live in NY. She has a place there, but lives in L.A.


It's Maggie and Saarsgard of course, and I am PRAYING the second item isn't Gwen

dorienne said...

From IMDB:

"Biography for
Parker Posey

Birth name
Parker Christian Posey".

Also, from Wikipedia:

"Posey was born in Baltimore, Maryland into a Catholic family. Her parents were Christopher and Lynda Posey; she has a twin brother, Christopher."

Hmmm, so her middle name is "Christian", so calling herself "Chis" seems pretty likely. But anyone else find it creepy that she's using the same name as her twin brother?!?

:::shudder:::

Reminds me of Parker's film "The House of Yes", in which she was obsessed with her brother (Played by Josh Hamilton)and was sleeping with him as well.

First post! Much love to EL...keep up the good work, I lurve ya lots!

GGA said...

I am late todayand it's already established the obvious: Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard with Jakey hanging with Lance the bicyclist and Matt the shirtless. My first thought for the crazy neighbor was Jodie Foster, but she lives with an assistant? I thought that she lived with her gf of 12 years Cydney Bernard. Jodie is definately A-list and a producer.

The second one would explain why some of these bimbos never evolve like Christina and that awful red lipstick or Gwen and the plat hair.

cindie said...

Jodie Foster is a great guess!According to Wikipedia, Jodie's given name is Alicia Christian Foster. We know that she's an actor, and she's also a director (Little Man Tate is the only one I can think of right now). As for living in NYC, I'm not sure. Parker Posey is not a director that I know of, and I wouldn't consider her an A-List actor.

Anonymous said...

according to IMDB, parker posey has no producing credits to her name. i don't think it's her.

on the other hand, jodie foster has her own production company (egg pictures). she's been living in NYC while filming "the brave one". and a couple months ago, wasn't there was a pic of her flipping off a photog, whilst sitting on her front stoop?

it's either jodie or someone else who hasn't been guessed yet.

ladyoblada said...

Now that I think of it, the second one is TOTALLY Gwen Stefani. She hasn't changed her look since the dawn of time and it's well known in underground circles in the UK that Gavin Rossdale swings both ways. A simple Google search will attest to this.

cris said...

Ent L sometimes has very fluid A-D list catagorizations. so that is open to interpretation. He also sometimes makes mistakes unintetionally: stating 'never been married' for example when the celeb actually has been. little stuff like that, so i think posey, although not a producer, could still be it.

Anonymous said...

Really? Gavin Swings???? details please!!!! Is she considered pop? yeah i guess so after 10 years doing SKA though....kinda lame

Anonymous said...

Gwen hasn't changed her hair color in ages, but she changes the style all the time. I don't think it's her.

Jodie Foster is a good guess. I don't think it could be Parker Posey baed on the producer part.

Drew is living with Fabrizio also, so I don't know rules her out.

Looks like Maggie and Sarsgaard were almost evicted and will be moving to Brooklyn.

The second one is most definitely Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale. If you've ever read Boy George's autobiography, Take It Like A Man, he talks about meeting Gavin in the early 80s and how he is bisexual. Apparently he hit on George back in the day and had a long relationship with Georgie's transsexual pal (and wanna be pop star) Marilyn.

Anonymous said...

Maggie isn't getting evicted. The judge overruled the landlord, but supposedly she's moving to brooklyn anyway.

Gwen is a great guess. Gwen's overall style or "look" has very much been perfected over the years. She changes things up, but it's always within some limits that are so totally her. And certain things are always there, like red lipstick and the rest of her makeup. And isn't it funny that back when her and Gavin were broken up back in like 1999, 2000 is when she had her pink hair. In fact, I once remember reading an interview with her when she said that she dyed it because thye broke up.

spressogrl said...

anonymous at 2:34...
I remember that too. She said that actually several times in interviews etc. She changed her whole look because of that breakup, and then went back again. Come to think of it, it does look rather transvestite like doesnt it?
As for the 1st,I am going to go with Jodie Foster. My dad has always said what a witch she is. He has seen her a few times and said she was not nice, and in fact a bit bitchy. The whole description fits her pretty darn well I think.

spressogrl said...

oops I had the time wrong..I was addressing anon at 2:36 :)

I'm going with Jodie

buzzcock said...

Def Gwen Stefani. Rossdale is famously bi with a real prediliction for female-looking men, although he denies it. I cant believe people thought it could be Madonna- have you ever seen Guy Ritchie interviewed? He's as straight as a man can be FFS! There's one reason their marriage will fail- and that's Madonna being a total control Kaballocks freak.
Anyway, Rossdale and Stefani were on/off/on/off for years, a main reason being he didn't want to have children. Their marriage was his acquiescence; "we won't have kids, but we'll get married". So how come they had a baby? She found out about his 'secret' 16 year old child with London-slag Pearl Lowe and thus had his balls.... To complicate the matter, Rossdale was the child's godfather- I mean, for christ's sake idiots! Anyway, google "Gavin Rossdale Pearl Lowe" for the full story. In the meantime, where does a relationship go after the woman effectively forces the man to have a child he doesnt want when she uses guilt as leverage? Hmmn, will she turn him back to his "I was in Constantine with Keanu Reeves and we got on really well" ways???

So, perhaps I should start a blog. My position on the periphery of general London stardom combined with my entire lack of ethics and with the need of my services remaining paramount in my continued employment, I can provide names and details and pretty much get away with it until forced to open a new blog. What do you think ENT?

GGA said...

What's disgusting is that you think that someone like Gwen is a strong woman, but yet her husband is dictating her look.

we want buzz said...

Buzz: definately start a blog!!!! I def think what you wrote this one blog is 100 times more interesting, honest, and well written than anything ENT has written so far! Go for it and give us the addy! good luck!

publicityiscandy said...

i love all these guesses. i just wonder, is Chris herself nasty, or is it the people she's surrounding herself with? wouldn't it be something if she was sitting home alone waiting for neighbors to stop by with brownies and welcome her to the 'hood and wondering where everyone was?

Pinky said...

Have a friend who was a v-jay in London who swears Rossdale was bi.

GGA said...

Hmmn, will she turn him back to his "I was in Constantine with Keanu Reeves and we got on really well" ways???


-- I would love to have this further explained. I am aware of Jennifer and the stillborn baby, but are you implying that Keanu is also bi?

Anonymous said...

Yep, I concur. Definitely Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale. (Thought I'd be first on that one!)

I'm still going with Drew Barrymore for "Chris".

rebecca said...

Jennifer and the stillborn baby????

Anonymous said...

Keanu had a girlfriend named Jennifer Syme. She got pregnant. I heard that he didn't want the baby, but stayed with her anyway. He wanted her to have an abortion. In month 8, labor was induced and the baby was stillborn. Jennifer went into a depression and never recovered. They broke up. Jennifer flipped her SUV on the 101. So Keanu lost his ex-gf and a baby.

Buzzcock named Keanu because like Gavin, he didn't want a child, but I was wondering if he was bi like Gavin too. My friends say that he's not gay, but a huge meth head.

i was thinking cortney cox and maybe xtina for #2?

meme said...

buzz - interesting. Maybe you two can combine blogs?

I have heard that about Gavin before as well -- a long time ago.

I don't doubt it about Keanu either. He's a strange dude.

"This modest motel, conveniently located in West Hollywood, enjoys visits from more than just budget conscious tourists. One day a very famous actor, who is frequently mentioned on this website, walked up to the check in desk. This hot guy has an off-beat personality that really appeals to his legions of female fans. On that day he was with a male companion, described as "a goodlooking well groomed mature man with grey hair." The actor paid for the room with his charge card and the two guys disappeared into the room. The clerk was surprised to see them leave after an hour. What were they up to? Drugs? Sex? Keanu Reeves; Joaquin Phoenix"

Rebecca said...

hanks anon for the Keanu/Jennifer story, I didn't know but am going to look up past stories now. What a tragedy!

As for the blind item posted by MEME, that totally sounds like Juaquin. he's very odd, and have you ever heard of him having a girlfriend?

You guys rock, commenting and reading your comments on the blog is so fun! Later!

cindie said...

Meme, I went to the site you linked. The names after the blind items...are they "the answers" or just guesses? Any idea?

cindie said...

Rebecca, I know that Joaquin dated Liv Tyler, but that's all I can think of at the moment.

Another point to make this a bit weirder if it's Jodie Foster. Pete and Jodie did a movie together called Flightplan, so wouldn't he know her as Jodie?

Jake G and his sister Maggie G

Virgo74 said...

I am soo surprised at Gavin and Gwen!! It seems like the ones that come across strong and confident are the most insecure. For real. How weird of a set up!!!!

Anonymous said...

For #2 I´d still consider Pink, too ... she always goes back to that totally manly look ...

rebecca said...

yeah but the Gwen/Gavin saga has so many of the elements. Many people have said in the past he was bi, and not just bi, but into transexuals! AND Gwen has never changed her look except when they were broken up when she died her hair pink. Considering she is so fashion forward and into redeveloping her style as well as her music, it id kind of strange she rarely changes her look at all!

Anonymous said...

It wouldn't surprise me if it's Gwen and Gavin. I think she's completely insecure... I think that is why she's constantly putting herself in front of the cameras.

LaTia said...

"Another point to make this a bit weirder if it's Jodie Foster. Pete and Jodie did a movie together called Flightplan, so wouldn't he know her as Jodie?"

Well, the blind item did say that the good neighbor called out the bad neigbor's real name and the assistant said no one by that name lives here, only "Chris". So, maybe the neighbors do know who "Chris" really is. Also are we sure about Maggie and Peter? The Blind item said that the good neighbor was carrying a 2 yr old... how many kids does Maggie have and how old?

Anonymous said...

About Jodie's "Egg Pictures" production company, I believe she sut it down a few years ago to spent time with her kids.

creepy husband could definatly LTC, and she does always go back to the same look

Anonymous said...

I think that there are 3 apartments in this building. The first couple is def maggie and peter and from what I understand there's another couple in the building with a 2 yr old (not maggie and peter). Correct me if I'm wrong....

voice of reason said...

Just to point out--the two year old belongs to "a neighbor" not necessarily a resident of the same building. So this bizarre roleplaying thing goes beyond residents of the building to (presumably) strangers to "Chris" making it weirder, to say the least. It also sounds like there are celebs in all 3 units. COULD be Maggie & Peter, and Parker in another unit, and then "Chris" downstairs.

(Please don't be Jodie, she's supposed to be a role model!)

ms thang said...

Maggie Gyllenhal and Peter Sarsgaard are efinately the celebrity couple with the new baby. Jake hangs with Lance (the bicyclist) who hangs with Shirtless Matthew McConaughey. Their neighbor could be Christina Ricci (who is also a producer) and uses "Chris" as a nickname. It could be Jodie too.

As for the pop star/transexual, I think it's Gaven and Gwen. Gwen never changes her hair color...she's always platinum blonde.

Voice of Reason said...

I don't think it can be any person of whose real name "Chris" is an easy derivative--it wouldn't be that weird for Christina Ricci to insist on being Chris rather than Christina. The snafu has to include someone saying the celebrity's name (e.g. "Jodie" (please no!)) and being corrected with "the person you have to talk to is Chris". The only way this interaction makes sense is if Chris is taken to be a complete alter-ego, and not merely a nickname.

My bestfriend's uncle was friends with Keanu before he was a known actor and my my... that man's bi! The uncle, Keanu and Keanu's boyfriend would all hang out together. I wouldnt be surprised if he still is today. He never really got into a serious relationship or got married after his girlfriend died (at least thats what I think), did he?

Liz said...

i am totally late commenting here, but i think that for #2, ENT gave a HUGE hint when he said "back to her same basic hairstyle...". isn't christina's latest album called back to basics?

Anonymous said...

I totally think that Christina is the one he is referring to. If you notice she's been partying a lot in the news latley- maybe she's upset her hubby prefers wee-wees.
