I know I do not usually do links in the afternoon, but this one was too good to pass up. Ask Men magazine is reporting today that Nick Lachey is not getting married anytime soon. This was the first blog to tell you that and we told you on December 18th. I guess their source is not as good as mine. Either that or they just used my information and waited awhile so they would not get caught. That is the second time in a week this blog has been waiting for all the rest to catch up.

Now, with that being said, lets all get to what you really want to see.

If you are involved romantically with an actor or actress, you really should think 2,3,4, or even five times before letting them run off to some international movie set leaving you home alone. (I know what you are thinking/too easy) Well this actress has taken a shine to her new castmate. From the time filming started recently, they could not get enough of each other. She has been dating the same guy for awhile and this break from the mundane is exactly what she needed. At first she was going to treat it just as a fling. Not usually a tabloid victim means she can do what she wants and who she wants without much trouble. The problem is she has started to fall for her co-star and is maybe even PG(not like the movie). Her current boyfriend meanwhile is just waiting for his girlfriend to come home.

Hints are what you want so hints you will get. This is where we will start.

Adjectives will give you the advantage in these. Two you can see and one you cannot. If you call the event by two names rather than one, you will soon be having all the fun. To have more fun just rhyme the second name to find the missing adjective which will solve the Jackass part of the game.

Let us continue here.

These were supposed to be easy, but somehow you have gone astray. My latest Golden Globe date has a special chocolate relationship which should help put at least one in place. Sometimes a cat is a kitten, but they can still tear apart things if you let them.

You don't have a special relationship with chocolate, Hez? I thought for sure his GG date was you!

Sienna Miller just did the opening of a chocolate store. But I don't see her fitting any of these BI's

JeeezeLouise said...

UKGrrl, there are way more than 3 adjectives in the Jackass item. I have to go host a lunch but will be back to solve the riddles!!

I was thinking the chocolate could be a term for the color of skin of the boyfriend, instead of the actual food.

Anonymous said...

Ugh, I think the hints are even more confusing than the original blind items!

Just thinking out loud, so correct me if I'm way off-base, but Ent's "latest GG date" is Drew Barrymore?

"If that thing with Kate Hudson and I does not work out, then at least I have a back up plan. Drew Barrymore can be my date to the Golden Globes."

But what is the chocolate relationship?

Also, does third and biggest blind item refer to MV, and we are to assume that Ent has never uttered her name before on this blog (but that some commenters may have)?

What was the article on Kate Bosworth (not) eating at Tao a hint for (per Ent's previous blog entry?

Look for adjectives? Are you friggin kidding me? I knew I should have listened to the nuns in junior high.

12:04 I'm assuming the link was provided because it also included Orlando Blooms name. He was being guessed for some BI yesterday or the day before. He's too gay for my taste, so I can't be bothered caring.

lol @ Hez
My google-fu is non-existent!
Do u think its Halle Berry? Chocolate? Catwoman etc?? She's like 5ft nothing HEZ u cld take her!
That being said, would Ent be that obvious though? Judging from his 'adjective hints' he does like the cerebral gymnastics!
Halle Berry might also be pregnant....hmm...HELP!

did y'all see the recent picture of Sienna Miller promoting Godiva in Century City yesterday? Ent luvs blondes, ergo that must be the "latest Golden Globes date."

I'm a bit lost, too.

Adjectives... yelling and screaming. Maybe Kicking and Screaming.

it only solves the jackass part? does that mean someone correctly guessed the kindness part?

pj said...

N/m the kicking and screaming has already been guessed.

lizz said...

okay, here are the adjectives i've found in each of the jackass/kindness items. i may have missed some but i've verified they are all adjectives.

in jackass we have: obnoxious, poor, humorous, and good appears twice.

in kindness we have: lovely, fat, lucky, and incredible appears twice.

i'm really stuck on the hint about calling the event by 2 names. i wasn't aware that the awards show and the jackass/kindness had anything to do with each other so i'm totally confused there.

hez said...

Sorry, Lily, but kicking and screaming are both nouns (gerunds). Adjectives modify nouns, adverbs and other adjectives. So, words like "loud," "obnoxious" and "angry" would qualify.

I don't know if that counts as making the most of my English degree, but I'll take the validation it where I can get it.

lily said...

Hez, you're right re:adjectives. I must be tired.

Voice of Reason said...

I agree that he's looking for Drew Barrymore's special chocolate relationship. Can't find anything on a half-assed search except that she was once on a Pillsbury chocolate cookie commercial. Is there a rock star named that?

Also note use of "astray"--like "stray cat."

What were the guesses for the Kindness? What adjectives rhyme with that last name? (e.g. "furry")

Anonymous said...

For the record, yelling and screaming can also be adjectives when they modify nouns (the yelling man), but Ent was using them as nouns in his post, as hez pointed out.

Here is the list I came up with for the jackass part:

favorite
good
louder
obnoxious
good
poor
good
angry
half (and other numbers)
annoying
far
far
good

At first I thought that the "two we could see" referred to two adjectives that we'd already commented on, but now I am thinking that Ent is saying that two of the adjectives are visual qualities (like tall and short) and the third is not visual (like loud or smelly).

I think it's more like Ent tells us when no one has guessed, but I don't think he ever confirms if/when we guess them correctly.

Boy am I confused! Is this all one clue "These were supposed to be easy, but somehow you have gone astray. My latest Golden Globe date has a special chocolate relationship which should help put at least one in place. Sometimes a cat is a kitten, but they can still tear apart things if you let them." or does the second part have to do with the cat like rockstar BI from yesterday?

I agree with Anon. This is totally irritating and this blog doesn't sound like it's written by the original author at all.

Uhhhh, can I be the first to say that kicking and screaming are not adjectives EVER, even if you say "the kicking/screaming man"... nor are they nouns. Kicking and screaming are verbs. Period. End of discussion. I strongly suggest that anyone who has a degree in English but cannot identify a verb should ask their post-secondary educational institution for a refund... STAT.

you missed some adjectives in the Kindness

spambiscuits said...

ok, i am thinking the last clue is about MV, I think we need to search the blog for who ENT has never mentioned. I searched madonna and he has mentioned her, so thats her out. I guess the clue also relates to something thats happening today or has happened.

Damn ENT the clues are really getting crazy, we are going to have to enlist some puzzle people to help us gossip mongers!

Ok if the last one without a link is about MV/S then here is a list of everyone ENT has named in his blog: Britney, Paula Abdul, Mariah Carey, Baby Spice, Beyonce, Kylie Minogue, Ashlee Simpson, Jessica Simpson, Mel B., Paris Hilton, Whitney Houston, Lil' Kim, Hilary Duff, Christina Aguilera, Courtney love, Madonna, Gwen Stefani, Celine Dion, Nelly Furtado and Kelly Clarkson.... so I guess this narrows it down a bit.

...now if only I understood what the heck to do with these adjectives.

Also, I was thinking that J.Lo was someone constantly tossed around as a possibility, and I don't think she's been mentioned by Ent on this blog.

BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING. Is an excellent guess. Meaning that "Greek" rhymes with "the second name" of the "event" that we are calling by "two names". Confused? You won't be after next week's episode of Soap.

Corbett was also in a movie named "Lucky." You cannot see lucky, either.

John Corbett played "lucky" in something called "lucky"

Anonymous said...

Keira Knightley is the blind item. 2,3,4,five refers to Pirates sequels. Geoffrey Rush was in the move Shine and that word is thrown in. She's been dating some guy from Pride and Prejudice for a while.

cindie said...

Corbett is a good guess, but is he considered "almost an A lister"??

Anonymous said...

There is another adjective in the kindness portion not identified in the posts thus far, which is also 2 words - don't forget the clue that said "if you call the event by 2 names rather than just one, you'll soon be having all the fun)

That word is - overnight (she went from bit player to big star almost overnight)

overnight is an event as well as an adjective, so if we split it into over and night, maybe we'll be on the right track?

Don't know where to go from there, but this seems to be where the clue is directing us.

lizz said...

for the jackass, all of the adjectives are coming from the kindness paragraphs and not the jackass paragraphs although they seem to make sense. are they switched perhaps? or are we to just use all the adjectives from both to figure it out?

I actually looked it up before I posted to mkae sure, and it is an adjective as well as an adverb (overnight success is an example of it being an adjective)

cindie said...

dc, I don't think Madonna fits the bill...without looking back at the MV BI, I think the person was excited because she heard a song on the radio in early 2000. We all know Madge has been around WAY longer than that. It does seem like it could be JLO though.

dc said...

...but he has admitted to a ittle fudging on years to cover his a$$...

Anonymous said...

Two things: bmini already ruled out Madonna bc Ent has mentioned her in this blog (along with a list that I won't reproduce here, scroll up to see it) & Ent admitted in an earlier post that he fudged the dates with MV to throw us off the scent a bit.

dc said...

...duh, missed that, thanks bmini!

spambiscuits said...

dont people read the previous entries before they post? we have already said that madonna has been mentioned by ENT. it is not her.

But used as an adverb in the post--so I'm thinking it's not the clue. There was some movie that I had the misfortune of watching recently called overnight delivery. Reese Witherspoon had the misfortune of being in it. Sorry--irrelevent.

"Sometimes a cat is a kitten, but they can still tear apart things if you let them."

babyshambles = Pete Doherty

Plus, someone linked to an article yesterday saying that Pete Doherty has admitted to being a male prostitute in his former years. Am I the only one who read the article? No one commented about it after the link was provided, but it clearly gives a viable solution to this BI.

Soxy, that seems definitive to me, although I was pretty much convinced when Pete Doherty was brought up when the original post went up. (Did Ent not think that enough of us bought into Doherty being the blind item?)

voice of reason said...

At this point I don't give a damn WHO the bi's are--I just want to figure out what the hell is going on inside Ent'l's head that his clues make sense to him.

Pinky said...

We're all stuck on yesterday's bi, but no one seems to be guessing today's. Is that because it's too easy?

Mila Kunis (Home Alone clue for McCauley Caulkin) as she just got done shooting a film called Bootcamp that supposedly takes place in Fiji.

The rest of the clues, he might as well said "If a train is going due east at 75 miles per hour..."

Anonymous said...

Someone guessed Halle Berry and Keira Knightley for the first, but I haven't seen enough clues to be convinced one way or the other.

I think that Ent's parenthetical statement after "home alone" is to let us know that he is just using that phrase, and that we shouldn't read into it as a clue. He did something similar with "drop dead gorgeous" on his Feb 5th blind.

Anonymous said...

Well, everyone knows JLo doesn't know how to sing so that is not a big shocker. But EntL has never mentioned Norah Jones either and at the beginning he said that it would devestate the music industry if it ever got out. I know that she has won several awards. But I hardly believe the music industry would be devestated if everyone found out it was JLo. But Norah Jones? She would have several awards taken away!
-Lucky

cindie said...

I, for one, would not be devastated (sp?) if it was Norah Jones. I did see her a few years back opening for the Dave Matthews Band, and it didn't seem she was lip syncing...but then again, I wasn't paying attention (read: alcohol).

Pinky, not sure about Mila. I'm convinced that Five has something to do with it, or at least the numbers...2,3,4 or five. Why spell out five??? Other than that, I got nothin'. On any (all weeks) of them.

What I don't get is... why hide the good person's name. He would not be saying anything bad, on the contrary... so it is spreading good news about the person... I think of gossip being damning only when it is malicious or will be negative for it to be known. Why not be more forthcoming with clues about someone being very nice. I don't get it.

Four O'Clock said...

I'm ready to get on the JLo bandwagon for MV. Her "first ever concert was 2 shows in 2001, in Puerto Rico, filmed (edited and cut) for a DVD release"

There was a lot of stink about her not singing live before that DVD was released.

She has never really "toured" although she scheduled a "mini tour" for 2006 that she not only cancelled, but had to pay the promoters for their expenses up to the point that she called it off in order to avoid being sued.

She doesn't sing when she appears on the chat shows, or the awards shows.

She's been in a lot of movies that she didn't even have a song of her own during the credits or as background music....singers always get a song on the soundtrack.

It would rock the world because of the number of CD's sold, and because people think of her as a singer that became an actress (even though her real start was as a dancer). There are several CD's, but there are a lot of repeated and remixed songs among them.

If there is a JLo mention tomorrow, I will know it's a lock!!

bmini said...

I don't think MV is JLO because she has never been on tour, and EN said specifically that MV went on tour.

Pinky said...

Okay, how about Paula Abdul for MV? There are pictures of her in USA Today (today) and I believe she's had gold records. Although calling her a 'singer' is a bit of a stretch ;)

Anonymous said...

I think Ent fudged on several things to protect his butt. And, I think one of the details was the touring mv did. I think it is Jlo for many reasons. Why do it in the first place? Because it makes financial sense for a talented beautiful woman in the movies who is crazy hot in all ways, who is getting promoted and talked about incessantly, and having done Selena and the success of that. The promoters wanted to cash in on the dynamic flow of this cash cow. Her vocals couldn't support it so they got somebody close enough to her voice that could hold a note and voila. The producers at the time said that they had to work on her vocals in the studio with software since they were so weak. But I think they were covering their asses because the voice was different enough that they had to excuse for it.

Since her successful releases she has been quiet for a couple of years. Now she has come out with another CD and her voice sounds different. They can excuse it by saying that it is in another language but the voice is so lovely and, since I speak spanish, I can compare it to the other CDs. I think she may have another session singer backing her because her voice aint good enough to sound like this latest. JMO

bmini said...

I also don't think it is JLo because she just released an album in Spanish, I think. The blind item says that with the last lump payment S received signaled the end of S' involvement, and thus, possibly/probably the end of MV. So I think we need to look at someone who hasn't released an album recently. If it is JLo then this will be her last album released. Someone said Shania Twain, whom hasn't been mentioned on this blog before by ENT and she hasn't done anything for a while.

bmini said...

pinky, El has mentioned Paula before so I don't think it is her.

Anonymous said...

I think the reference to 5 is significant too, in both items for the actress. Could it be Jennifer Love Hewitt (Party of Five)?

ms_wonderland said...

Today's first BI could be Michelle Williams and Ewan MacGregor, or Hugh Jackman. They are filming in Madrid (international movie set). She's been dating Heath Ledger 'for a while'. 'This break from the mundane' - the film is called The Tourist. Michelle doesn't appear in the tabs much. PG is confusing - is it a reference to her being a parent? I don't recall Heath and Michelle actually marrying, so they are still boyfriend and girlfriend.

Anonymous said...

MV could be JLo. Has anyone else mentioned that the lead vocal on her album/albums on the murder inc record label sound more like Ashanti than her. From what I remember, Ashanti was one of the Backing singers on the album, but, To me every song sounds like she's singing and JLo's the backing singer.
The music business is extremely corrupt and there could be more than one MV in the industry.

"This actress has not been in many things, but everyone will know her for 'all time' anyway. "

Anonymous said...

bmini gave two great reasons why mv can't be JLo: because JLo hasn't realy toured, and MV has, and also because JLo just released an album in Spanish, and MV, we might be led to believe, has kept a lower profile since the settlement.

I have a hard time believing it's Shania Twain just because she's performed live with folks like Willie Nelson and Allison Krauss/Union Station...but maybe that is part of the shock value, that everyone bought into MVs game.

Also, with Norah Jones' connection to Ravi Shankar, that would kind of be a shocker, to me at least.

If there is a blog that has been following this and has been approaching the guessing / elimination systematically (we, myself included, keep going over the same names here with no breakthroughs), please link!

Anonymous said...

Like I said before, it could be Jlo if Ent L was fudging on the detail of touring. And, her spanish album does not sound like her and neither does her old stuff sound like her...

The only other one I can think of is Anastasia. She is a blond babe who sounds quite black. It is very strange. She is huge across the seas and has toured hugely...

hez said...

Well, the "special chocolate relationship" is clearly Drew as Gertie in ET and her Reese's Pieces. For the life of me I can't figure out how to fit it into the lexical Jenga Ent has constructed for us today, but I am certain that part of the code is cracked. Now, whether the clue is in the candy's name or the movie's name, that I dunno.

Anonymous said...

Re: JLo as MV

I always considered JLo as a possibility, but what threw me off was that MV was in everywhere including commercials. I don't remember her in commercials. I believe the commercials clue is what heightened the argument for Jessica Simpson (which ENT later denied)

-Pgh

Anonymous said...

Commercials and advertisements could be of her perfumes and clothing lines.

Four O'Clock said...

Just to clarify...

JLo has done a few concerts. The two in PR were billed as a tour. She has never developed a show, loaded it on 5 semi trucks with 40 people and gone to 60 cities in 100 days, that is "really" touring.

The work that was done "for the tour" would certainly be more believeable in a 2 show, start-and stop-because-of-filming kind of concert situation.

Plus, you are assuming that she can't sing at all...which is unlikely. The new stuff may very well be her voice. Age, experience, confidence all mature a voice and a good engineer can polish it right up to sell. New CD's service her fanbase, who are going to buy what she puts out. She is not competing for attention with upstarts for shelf space, radio play, etc.

Anonymous said...

*squee* hez, you are a genius with the special chocolate relationship. I totally forgot about that, but seem to remember Yoda being in an M&Ms commercial ca. early 80s. Something to do with E.T. and/or Reese Witherspoon? Grabbing at straws here, but "This very smart actress finally got her big break and then the show was no more" now looks like "big break"=oscar or divorce and the show is over=divorce. But the rest of the item completely does not work. :(

how about Janet Jackson? Since the original dates were off it could be her... she has done more than 20 CDs. EL states the process was done over and over but could not state how many times over or it would give it away. Well, can it be J. Jackson? Everything else applies.

I like hints, but I wish they made a little more sense regarding which hint went with which BI.

I am on board with maybe the Kindness being Nia Vardalos....she really has not been in much, but everyone her one movie was hugely popular. Big, and fat are certainly adjectives you can see, and Greek you cannot.

MV had to have connections. It's either J-Lo, Shania, or Janet.

Anonymous said...

It has to be someone highly marketable, gorgeous, and worth the incredible risk they took.

Shania, hmmm, I don't know. Would Butt Lange do that? Something there does not add up. Besides many people have seen her in bars in early days without the 'studio pyrotechnics' and lip synching.

So that leaves Janet or Jlo. Incredible commercial marketability. Both on beauty, sex appeal and timing with the media.

Anonymous said...

OK- this is a bit of a long shot, but working off the suggestion that the adjectives EL is referring to are from My Big, Fat, Greek Wedding and if you call the event (a wedding) by two names rather than one (Wedding Singer) and rhyme the 2nd name (Singer) to find the missing adjective (Ringer) to solve the Jackass part of the game, could the Jackass be Johnny Knoxville himself?

I can't find the quote, but didn't EL say it was really obvious?

I think it's Janet. I listened to her most recent single and she is pro-tooled to death. J-Lo didn't really tour. Janet was also initially reluctant to go into the recording industry because she didn't feel she was a talented singer compared to her family.

I listened to Shania's 1st album (before Mutt) and her voice is the same.

Could be J-Lo, too. She didn't really tour, though.

Anonymous said...

Janet's latest CD has tanked so badly that it has got on several worst lists of the year. Can you imagine someone of her socalled calibre ending up as in the top five worst of the year? On her own without S she doesn't cut it.

Maybe she will go into retirement and release a lot fo the Best ofs for the next albums.

lily said...

The thing that doesn't strike a chord with me about it being Janet is that I have a hard time imagining her being so snotty to the real singer b/c of looks. Janet has had her struggles with weight.

That brings me back to J-Ho.

lily said...

On the other hand, "hundred of concerts all over the world" does NOT sound like J-Lo.

Has to be Janet.

anon 8:29, I really hope that Ent wouldn't have taken us through all those verbal acrobatics with all those silly adjectives, if the one word we needed, jackass, was in the original post (and I think that Johnny Knoxville did come up as a guess a few times). Ugh. I'm starting to picture Ent sitting smugly at his computer, smiling as he's hoarding all his secrets, and watching us suffer!

Anonymous said...

First time reading these things, but I think Mr. Ass might be Jack Black. He has 3 movies coming out in 07. If you call the event by two words: Jack Ass and then rhyme the second word: Jack Black...

Still don't know who Kindness is...

Ent: please remember that it's easier to work backwards than it is to work forwards. You might think you're giving us some fabulous clues, but you've not made it easier in the least. Give us a middle initial or something!

Janet Jackson was briefly mentioned on Friday, December 01, 2006 blog. That probably discounts her.

Now back to Shania. Hmm. The BV said that the Guy came to S with songs he'd written. Mutt Lange has written all of Shania's songs. She has toured extensively. Has not done anything lately. Moved out of the country to Switzerland for a couple of years. Her second album was majorly successful, even more than the first.

Anonymous said...

It is not JLO! She has not toured and she did'nt have this huge profile when her recording project started.

The tone of her singing voice is also so identical to her speaking voice in movies that they cant possibly have used another singer. More likely Pro Tools.

hez said...

;-) @ Dorothy. If only I could get a refund on a few of my past relationships... ("STAT" - bwahaha!)

OK, kids, I do think Big Fat Greek Wedding is absolutely correct, and if I read my clues properly, the two word way to say that event is "wedding day". As for what rhymes with that... I think that's about as far as I can run with that pass... anyone ready for the handoff?

PS: I have no further insight about the MV blind item other than to say it is NOT Leann Rimes. I've seen her live, and while she's not necessarily my cup of tea, she's got bona fide singing chops and the voice is 100% her own.

Now I'm gonna go have a "special relationship" with a beer.

Anonymous said...

wait, hez, don't go yet--when you saw My Big, Fat, Greek Wedding is absolutely correct, that's for Nia Vardalos for kindness, not John Corbett for jackass?

Ent said "To have more fun just rhyme the second NAME [not 'word'] to find the missing adjective which will solve the Jackass part of the game." Does that mean her last name, Vardalos??

Also, I thought that we found the "missing adjective" (greek) already? Unless the two we see and one we don't see rule applies to Jackass too...?

*bangs head against the wall*

Ent, you owe us big time. It's almost worse getting confusing clues then expecting none at all.

Anon 9:35 said guessed Jack Black for the Jackass BI, and I think that might be right...black is an adjective (the one adjective you "can't see" in the post) and it rhymes with the possible first name Jack...

...and EL types of "the wrath of Mr. Ass" also--Jack Black was in "King Kong"--the wrath of Kong is a pretty well-known way of describing the storyline in the King Kong movie(s).

I dunno--first time guesser here, but boy is this stuff addicting. I should be sleeping!

Anonymous said...

Adjectives will give you the advantage in these. Two you can see and one you cannot

(Black).

If you call the event by two names rather than one, you will soon be having all the fun.
(Wedding Day)

To have more fun just rhyme the second name to find the missing adjective which will solve the Jackass part of the game.

Gay? It has to be something that rhymes with Day , or is there another name for the event? He is talking about rhyming the name of the event not the second name of Jackass or the second bv of the nice lady.

I don't think it's Nia Vardalos. Her TV show was quickly cancelled and I heard a lot of stories of her being a supremely bitchy diva type on set. The crew kind of rejoiced when the show was cancelled, and the bloom quickly went off her rose. Doesn't fit to me.

Might be about the Jackass. However, I don't see it as John Corbett, though. He strikes me as way too mellow (he dates Bo Derek fercripesakes)to be popping off like that.

Anon @ 10:57 is right: the key seems to be that it's a rhyme with "wedding day" (or just "day"), not necessarily an actor in the movie.

Is he trying to say that Reese and Jake had sex? And Jake had sex with two other women, too? And Reese did girls? Head spinning!!!

Jake's B-day is December 19.

voice of reason (that last one was me too) said...

If you weren't going to eat the food Kate Bosworth and were not going to take it home, then why the big production? Not a lot to say in this comment, but the article has a hint so I could not let it slide.

The article is about Kate Bosworth and her new boyfriend James Rousseau.

His birthday is also December 19.

Is that the hint? I thought there were big Jake's gay rumors.

Voice of Reason said...

On the other hand, the "big production" mentioned in the article was her movie "Superman"--this is ridiculous. He never even said what the hint is for. I'll never get one of these right. :(

Voice of Reason said...

Ok--last word then i'm going to bed. I like the Jack Black guess b/c throughout he calls the man Mr. Ass. This would be the type of wordplay Ent'l would do for "fun". Name's "Jack", so calls him Mr. Ass--he would think that was so obvious. This works with the hint too (he says "name" rather than "word"--Jack's a name, and in his item, Ass is a name). The "event" is the posting of Jackass/Kindness. Jack Black was also in Dead Man Walking and Run Ronnie Run; Melvin Goes to Dinner; and something with the word "kind". I'm crossing that one off the list.

I still like Big Fat Greek Wedding for the Kindness. Wiki says this: "Vardalos, of Greek descent, had done many different works but gained almost overnight success." Another bio on Yahoo uses "overnight" as well. The word "overnight" looks familiar. "no matter where in the world she is" reference to greece? Looks like she's got other income than acting.

She's also a do-gooder: "Actress Nia Vardalos (“My Big Fat Greek Wedding”) taught eight girls from Roosevelt High School how to write a screenplay and then arranged to have the five-minute screenplay shorts performed with professional actors."

Ok. Good night.

Virgo74 said...

Shania for the blind item MV and S!!! Wow, I can see that totally, and she has not done anything at all.

the 'smart actress' one just dawned on me as jessica simpson...not sure what that has to do with drew barrymore...but the 'smart' being ironic...the 'big break' that ended the newlyweds-the new movie coming out 'blonde ambition'...too bad all of the guys she's been linked to don't have recent birthdays...

Anonymous said...

The hint is adjectives :
'2 you can see and one you cannot.' Two of the first adjectives to appear in the Kindness item are Big and Fat. An adjective you can't see? Black - an adjective that's not there and you can literally not see it. also And/or the word Greek.

So, for the Kindness item: Big and Fat, hmmm... how about My Big Fat Greek Wedding. "If you call the event by 2 names rather than one you will soon be having all the fun' Possibly this could be big wedding and fat wedding. Same meaning but two names rather than one. 'Rhyme the 2nd name and you will find the missing adjective that will solve the jackass part of the game'. Fat is the 2nd and it rhymes with Black.

now for the Jackass post. He calls the man Mr. Ass. Thus Mr Ass = Jack Ass. (as Voice of Reason said)
The hints says you should call the event (which could also be the posting of the blind item as someone said - named jackass- by 2 names not one i.e not just Mr Ass but also a second name, Jack. Then rhyme the 2nd name (Jack) and you've 'got the adjective which will solve the Jackass part of the game': (Jack rhymes with black). Jack Black. Jack Black was also in Dead Man Walking and Run Ronnie Run and Melvin Goes to Dinner says Voice of Reason. He has a new movie in postproduction (so probably coming out soon). Somewhat ironically it is called 'Be Kind Rewind'. The items also says "the wrath of Mr. Ass" Jack Black was in "King Kong"-the wrath of Kong is a well-known way of describing King Kong(as someone alreay mentioned).

Martina said...

Jack Black seems so obvious now. *bangs head on desk for not finding it out herself*

For the #2 hint:

My latest Golden Globe date has a special chocolate relationship which should help put at least one in place.

Johnny Depp was in "Chocolat" [a superb movie btw.], so that's the chocolate relationship with Keira Knightley IMO.

jack black is on tour in Australia with tenatious D just now. his first night playing was the 9th, and i would have imagined he left at least a few days before that.

RikkiTikkiTavi said...

For those suggesting Norah Jones as MV... First she is on BlueNote, probably the most legit label in the history of the industry, with an extremely low-key approach to marketing.

Also, she came out of the jazz studies program at University of North Texas, the best program in the entire country, and received several DownBeat magazine student awards when she was still in high school. As a musician, she is about as legit as it comes. If you were going to fake a pop star, you'd pick someone considerably more camera friendly, not a kinda thick, freckly girl that can't dance.

spambiscuits said...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VH1_Divas this could help with the MV story. By all accounts it was live and broadcast live, so i dont think that MV would be any of the singer who appeared on it. i was thinking MV was shania but i am just not so sure....

Pope-rah said...

I'm not convinced that the MV/S story is real (Sorry ENT LAW - very entertaining - so entertaining in fact, it got me to do the following:)
I went through Rolling Stones Artist List by each letter of the alphabet, just looking for some popstar that this could have applied to, in case there the story was older and we were maybe forgetting about someone).

Here's what I found:

If it's true, it has to be Britney and she found out about the blog and he had to deny her to us on the blog to protect himself.

If it's not Britney it has to be a fake Blind. There is no one else this could apply but her ... I've looked!

Rachel said...

ok well i'm just as confused as most and I don't know if i'm putting all the hints together right, as they're all blurring together now, but what if the kindness is Nia Vardalos (as said) and her second name 'Vardalos' (if i'm pronouncing it right) rhymes w/ 'host'? He's been talking about the GG a lot, what about who's hosting GG-Chris Rock- as the Jackass?
Chocolate a possible reference to his skin color;
I think he's very 'obnoxious', 'loud', 'annoying', he's a 'little' guy (..moving a 'little' slow),
he has had a 'flat' ('flat out') top,
was Rock 'poor'?,
he has all kinds of stuff coming out soon,
he always seems very 'angry' in demenour in his stand ups,
he's a comedian thus 'humorous' adj.
Just a thought...

spambiscuits said...

I am agreeing with Pope Rah, i have been looking and looking for who it could be and i think its britney now too, and i agree with pope rah's explanation, i think ENT has gotten worried that its been discovered and Britney is worried too and he is backtracking. If you go on youtube and look for britney live on the disney club you will see her sing in a much deeper and different voice than she has now. I wouldnt mind seeing your explanation why you think its her Pope-rah

Rachel said...

for today's blind item, what if 'five' is for Party of Five and its Neve Campbell, instead of JLH? she's been overseas for lots of movies lately, though I can't find out who she's dating.

--Spambiscuits: I've thought before that Brit couldn't sing. I saw her live on SNL once and noticed that to sing certain notes, she had to position herself just right. I noticed because when I do my car or shower singing, etc, I sometimes have to do the same thing. (specifically, holding her neck in the back to reach lower notes) I couldn't believe a 'professional' would be doing the same thing a meager, not even 'amateur' person would need to do.

Pope-rah said...

I've seen Britney live in concerts with great close seats (with my daughter). It was the most OBVIOUS lip-synching event I've ever seen. Even my 8-yr old daughter (at the time) was completely disgusted because it was THAT OBVIOUS.

It has to be somebody big enought to "blow the music world up and shake it to its core..." - this person would have at least been mentioned in Rolling Stone once be it a review or something.

All other female noteables that I saw - either sound too much like the way the speak (like J. Lo - I'm sure she's a victim of overworking ProTunes, but not this) or can actually sing (I had thought of Mandy Moore - but I saw her live with Backstreet Boys plus she's not big enough as far as sales and tours)

Who else is there? Name somebody and I'll tell you why it's not them.

If this is a true blind item - then has to be Brit, but she saw about the double-autographed album and blew his lid off, threatened to sue, whatever and he came on here and said we were wrong to cover his ass! Wouldn't you if you were him?

Otherwise it must be just a made up story...albeit a good one.

spambiscuits said...

yup. the only ones who come close it just doesnt make sense that its them, theres janet jackson, shania twain and britney, i think those are the 3 that fit closest to the discription. also when ENT mentioned that MV was considering an interview to talk about personal problems etc, who else do we know who is that big with personal issues? I will only believe it if britney brings out something new. mind you, with all this talk about it they might just go back to S and offer her a load of money to do it for her again. think about it, britney even cancelled her tour, wouldnt you if you were just lip synching? you would just think it a waste of time.

i can say it's not shania. was backstage at a show one time in houston and she is def singing... lots of cardio in show she def got out of breath and you could hear that. so not lip synched at least what i saw.
all the rest i'm so lost on......

I'll never believe it's her. Still don't like her though.

Guess we'll never know....but the seed of doubt has been planted.

Shame on you.

Pope-rah said...

When some people sing live - you can just tell if it's really, really live or you know their lip-synching or you have a twinge of "something's a little off with that, but I can't tell for sure"

I think MV could pass lip-synching live if her audience was A. gullible (young) B. Or didn't care either way (parents who there for their kids and didn't care about the show) - i.e. Britney

on the beyonce... wondered if the timing of release date in 2000 worked for her first going solo? maybe that was when things changed. i'm prob tryin to make her fit bcs i too do not like her... she has been very rude to every dj i know. even when they are trying to help promote her she just acts like she's better than the whole world and def more beautiful than anyone else. she almost gotten one jock fired just bcs of a little backhanded comment about her make up.
anyway yeah prob want it to be her to bring her and her too proud fam down!

Pope-rah said...

RGirl - I'm witcha - don't like Beyonce either - but MV just isn't her. There's no way to make it make sense.

I also thought of maybe Avril Lavigne, but she also sounds the ways she sings when she speaks and I heard her sing live on TV once and she sucked - definitely didn't have any pre-recorded help.

me-a-mia said...

This would put the Milli Vanilli scandal and Ashlee Simpson SNL situation so far down the ladder it would be crazy.. Britney sang
Crazy. It just has to be her, when
you read the other reasons people

lily said...

I'm not convinced it's not Janet Jackson. Her sound is way more synthetic on the new album than in some of her previous albums. Without S, they had to pro-tool her to death. Her family has connections to be able to do something like what is described.

lily said...

Okay, if it's Brit, who is the middle man that EL recognized?

Also, Britney's voice is not that good. If they were going to hire someone, wouldn't they get someone who can sing?

ent lawyer said...

pope-rah-- it is always ok to diss me. I think strong opinions one way or the other make for the best conversations.

voice of reason said...

Yes, I would much prefer to think of Johnny Depp in that foursome than Jake Gyllenhaal. But he's got a June birthday.

I also thought that Drew (not Keira) was the latest GG date. [But someone please confirm that she was a prior lesbian bi--and then get her to invite me to the GG!] And I like the guess that someone came up with saying the "chocolate relationship" was Reese's Pieces.

I know there have been those rumors that Reese was with Jake that we all thought were a laugh and a half b/c we assume he's gay. Has she been linked to anyone else? If not, as I mentioned, Jake's B-day was 12/19.

To reiterate my earlier posts: The two possible "hints" I gleaned from the Bosworth anorexia article could be something to do with "Superman Returns" (he used the phrase "big production" in giving us the hint, and it was named in the article) or, though a bit more removed, the birthday connection with Kate's man James Rousseau and Jake Gyllenhaal. Again, December 19.

I reiterate b/c 1) I want to know if anyone even thinks this Reese thing is a possibility (she doesn't seem the type, he doesn't seem the type, but it best fits the hints he's dropped); and 2) because I haven't heard from anybody about what they think the Kate Bosworth article "hint" is.

Also, I don't think it's Ent'l's style to make us go into contortions to make his hints fit. Usually they're somewhat difficult to figure out, but once you do, it all falls into place (the Jack Black one is a good example). He's working backwards, so he thinks of the person, wikis and imdbs him and uses clues from there. Once you figure out who it is and you do the same, it's totally obvs where the clues came from.

radiogirl said...

pope-rah
yeah def not avril...have had her on the air in studio several times. although not the brightest bulb to interview she sounded like herself singing less that 4 ft away.

okay here's why it may not be brit.. based on the 2000 timeline. why have S come in after 1 album had been released for sure... and timing of second i think means it was recorded prior to S coming on the scene too. here's why.

With the release of her debut album, "...Baby One More Time" in early 1999, Britney became an international success, selling 13 million copies of "Baby" and 9 million (as of July 2001) of her sophomore album, "Oops!...I Did It Again," released in May of 2000.

Pope-rah said...

Janet Jackson was the only other viable guess in my mind. But I ruled her out because she's been around since forever. I've never seen her live in concert, only on "live" on TV, and I alwasy found her "live" performances questionable at best. So I would say maybe to her first successfuly album came out 20 or more years ago...and she just released a new album...and I was under the impression that MV wasn't up to anything at the moment..

Anonymous said...

MV is Britney. Dates were fudged to make it less obvious.

Certainly explains why someone who is not a relative or a lover can give her such a 'free pass' when her behaviour, granted,magnified by media scrutiny, has been appalling. By any standards.

Except ENT's apparently.

Femme Cafe said...

Its not Shania, there are numerous tapes of her before she became successful, she used to sing in bars and shows etc...

Its not Janet Jackson either, she doesn't have a powerful voice and they use machinations to make her sound good but she has sang live many places and done accapella's on shows where she's actually singing so you know she can sing but she's not a great voice.

Its not Beyonce.... she's not great either but she can sing.

Its not Norah Jones.... gal can really sing.

Avril? I'm not sure about.

I thought Britney for the longest time but EntL insists he could never talk about his "friends" and he's mentioned Brit several times so that rules Britney out though she would have been my fav for this, she can not sing!

finaly on MV, its not that she can't sing completely though, I think she could swing it if she was singing "live" in a controlled atmosphere where she gets "help" on pitches she can't make by S's recording of the live singing.... so we can't just assume its someone who CAN NOT SING AT ALL. Coz for MV to have survived she has to carry a tune somehow but she's just not able to perform or sing for a CD to sell....

Many guessed Ashanti and Alicia Keys.... I doubt its Alicia... she sings live... Ashanti I would have thought but she was JLo's back up singer so maybe not.

I believe MV is JLO remember that crap she did when singing a spanish song with her husband on MTV? She might "sing" how she talks but maybe someone else - S - did it for her? I've seen JLO on Oprah singing, don't know if it was actually LIVE infront of oprah or supported by tape...... she did a "tour" in latin america that wasn't really a tour it came out on DVD.

The question becomes if its JLO, that means her husband knows this and they found someone else to sing for her on ther new spanish CD? or did she actually get training finally and is able to sing somewhat?

RikkiTikkiTavi said...

You guys are missing the mark with Britney. First point is that S was seeking counsel to collect payment that had been suspended by financial issues of the artist and their representation. Spears' net worth is above the $100M mark.

Think a bit more mature sounding voice... as S was quite established as a studio vocalist at the time this occurred. Second clue is that the artist has had an inconsistent financial history.

MV was not mentioned as not being up to anything at the moment... she was simply mentioned as being on her own from there on... and Janet Jackson sounds horrible on her latest album, unlike her previous efforts.

We'll see what Britney's new album sounds like. maybe it'll confirm things one way or another

It could be Jlo as her financial history could be sketchy depending on her investments. She had her fingers in so many pies, doing perfumes, clothing and what not that perhaps it made her immediate cash fund access small. Until the money came in from further sales on the inventory.

I don't think it is her on the latest CD. Have you seen the video? Gosh, her voice sounds lush, resonant. Can't be her unless she has had fantastic lessons. I saw a live show of hers recently and without S backing her up, she sounded awful.

MV might have been inconsistent moneywise but it was just never known publicly? We've all been led to believe Brit is worth 100 -150M but is she really? she never wrote the songs so all the money is from tours less Tax and less all other expenses how much is her net amount? She got money from her Pepci endorsments and her perfurme but that can't be that much either.

same questions for JLO. She made money after she became a bigger star and did her fashion line, perfumes and other endorsements.. all came after her CD's and fame...

Once again, I think some of you are wrong with your MV guesses. Ent would not burn his Britney bridge.

Plus, in the blind, MV comes off sounding like a royal beeyotch, and when have you ever heard Britney be anything other than "gosh, y'all"? I really don't think she goes all Miss Ross behind closed doors. Just doesn't fit.

But Brandy is quite a good guess, actually.

Voice of reason's post @ 9:46 AM has lots of good advice in it (esp the last para), but you guys are way off with "Chocolat". Drew is the source of the clue, and I really think it's nothing to do with Depp or Kiera.

177 comments and counting. And this wasn't even a Four for Friday!

^5s Ent!

One thing on the Drew association with chocolate - aren't reese's pieces peanut butter?

For MV - interesting that there is so much smoke about Brit-Brit's new album not going so well. Now that S is out of the picture, doesn't it make sense that there would be problems?

It would be huge if it was Brit. She was the number one selling artist in the world. The clues are there. Perhaps Ent became friends with her through this and the friendship provides a safety net for them both from the truth being found out. He has mentioned her in previous blogs so that does not match up.

The only ones not mentioned are Jlo and Shania Twain. Janet Jackson was mentioned once so very briefly and offhand that Ent may have missed that one. So, now my guess is one of these three.

My guess for the Kindness is Brit.

'Once again, I think some of you are wrong with your MV guesses. Ent would not burn his Britney bridge.'

He isnt burning any bridges, we are just saying that looking at the clues it looks like its her, and if it isnt her its Janet, Shania or Jlo. Unless we have it totally wrong. Ent wont confirm or deny anything, the only people he has denied it is is Britney and Jessica simpson. there may be others.

another clue is that he said there was going to be an interview about issues in MV's life. who is a major star and having problems?

does anyone have yesterdays clue thats now gone? maybe there was an anagram or someting in there and he didnt want us to work it out.

The biggest of all was a clue. Brit was the biggest of all, even on the Phorbes list and in the music world. At her height there was no one bigger, she even topped Madonna in sales worldwide.

Then there was Whitney with her 'biggest love of all' song. But he has mentioned Whitney Houston in the blogs three times.

Then there is Celine Dion with her song for Titanic which is the greatest selling movie of all time. But Ent has mentioned her too.

Heck I don't know. Jlo has not toured unless you count the made for DVD concerts. Would that count?

hey about the BI the other day about the actor cheating... its mel gibson!!! i just read a thing on perez hilton about it...

"What sobriety-challenged, adulterous action star was having "a very intimate meal" with a woman that was not his wife at Cafe del Rey in Marina del Rey this week? He may be a hater, but he sure loves this one brunette a lot. Seems like the fires aren't the only things burning in Malibu!"

i just keep thinking it has to be a newer artist than say janet, celine, jewel, sara mc, shania...
someone more like michelle branch or pink timeline.

the older ones have been around and if S didn't come into picture till after they'd released several albums then wouldn't that be pretty obvious something changed?

so i feel like it has to be a newer artist whose first album wld have come out then.
but have no real guess ;),

The one who really changed was Janet Jackson- from her first couple of CDs. She was not impressive, then bang... she came on the scene with power. Ent said he fudged on the years so you can't go by the timeline he set at the beginning. Janet fits all the other clues.

Brandy has never been mentioned in the blogs.

Ok... a bit more of a clue on MV... look for someone with consistency in producers (same or same 'family') - track to track, album to album.

Different producers are going to get the artist in the studio all the time to work. Impossible that so many producers could be in on something like this. Easy way to disqualify many of the names on the list of singers that have been floating around is to run through the producers they have worked with (btw - another good clue is label consistency vs. changes).

This leads into the second point... think big, but not huge. A huge success will have producers coming after them to want to cash in. A big success would have chased a producer (either themselves or setup by label/management) and could have possibly been made big by a single good producer, but have been prevented from becoming huge for the very same reason.

As for Britney being MV: I'm a Swede in Stockholm (northern Europe, y'all) and Britney recorded most of her first two albums here in a small studio called "Cheiron".

Now, Sweden and Stockholm is a small community and Cheiron used a big crew of producers for projects like Spears. If she had not sung herself, it would most definitely have been rumored about and we would have heard it here. No doubt.

Also, Brit Brit was in a relationship with Justin Timberlake who actually has some musical talent and composes great harmonies for his solo tracks with Timbaland. He would no doubt have noticed this instantly, so I don't think Britney would have dared.

Shania is the only one I can think of who had the same producer over and over... her husband.

Others have heard her sing, but well? Maybe she can carry a tune but needed more brilliance in her vocals to take her to the next step.

The same could be said of Jlo. Or Janet?

******************
Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis? they are brothers I believe and always always work together. They've also been Janet Jackson's producers for the longest time all the way to the latest album. She still does sound the smae in ther new album too though more RnB than the pop she used to do.

that being said, I've been to Janet's concerts, I've seen her sing accapella(sp?) and sing live just with a guiter.... I've also seen her on shows sing with no accompanyments and ok. Not a strong or pleasant voice but ok enough to sell
example:
here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ShW5bHEISS0

Here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eX7HDSeMVe0

Here she is live on Oprah:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBoh54KS7XQ

she's been around much too long and done too many tours to be MV.

Good point, we should check that could be a good clue... to find out who MV is....

that said if this BI was Janet the it would rock the music world coz she's been there for ever.

It's not Britney.

Have you guys seen any episodes of her show Chaotic? She sings constantly on it (yes, she's one of those annoying people who walks around singing to herself all the time), and her voice sounds exactly the same as it does on her recordings.

My two cents.

Its Jlo or Shania. Has to be.

RikkiTikkiTavi said...

Even colder with Shania. She started out with in Nashville Mercury, who she remained with, even though her first album wasn't so great. Mutt produced starting on the second album (sold 12M). She didn't start touring until the third album, and only toured a second time for UP!. Though Mutt did all production, tracks were recorded all over the place - LA, NYC, Stockholm, Berlin, London, Zurich, Aukland, Mumbai... An impossible feat for a ringer to make it to the studio.

Another point of disqualification... Mutt has an extremely consistent income, is a very careful spender, and was extremely successful prior to producing Shania (and has produced several multi-plat singles for other artists since her).

MV's initial success was epic, but there was a desire for change, though coverage has been low, her career may yet be on the firm.

rikkitikkitavi said...

Jennifer Lopez (I can't say J.Lo with a straight face, it sounds like a brand of cheap fruit juice)... cold. Janet... even colder.

First Janet. She comes from one of the most talented families in entertainment history, and is quite a talented and versatile (proven triple-threat) performer. She was performing on national television as young as 10 years old. It is odd that someone could even suggest her, for a long list of reasons.

Lopez is, again, another triple-threat (though far less threatening), and music was the last area she established herself in. She was basically made by Mottola. There would have NEVER been possibility of pulling one over on Mottola, again, for a long list of reasons.

The official story of MV's discovery is that she was pretty much delivered to the label, almost overnight.

i am beginning to think that MV just cant be true, or if it is its not someone as mega famous as we are all thinking.... i just want to know who it is !!!!!

"MV's initial success was epic, but there was a desire for change, though coverage has been low, her career may yet be on the firm. "

rikkitikkitavi, where does this statement come from? I went through the original MV post and couldn't find it, too lazy to search through the updates.

If I'm applying this correctly, this statement refers to Mandy Moore.

Her original label was 'Epic' who dropped her and now she is with 'The Firm' part of EMI.

Is she MV?
