Dinner, Gossip and Burglary

So last night went out with one of my new found Grammy friends. Let’s call her AP. I really didn’t want to go, but ended up having a good time. I don’t know if it was because of the booze or just because it was nice to go out for the first time in a few weeks. She is followed by the pap when she puts herself in a position to be photographed, but it just goes to show you that when you want to be away from the cameras it is pretty easy unless you are worthy of people following you all the time. I was going to tell her about the blog but chickened out. We basically talked about what it is like for an actress to change not only the public perception of her but also the studios. Even though she is a solid B lister she is forced to audition for the roles she wants. If she wants to portray what she is known for than it is unnecessary, but otherwise she reads scripts sent to her and has to go audition just like everyone else. The only break she gets is that she gets to see most of the scripts being sent out and can always get an audition.

Her solution to the problem has been to try and do films on her own which she loves but does not really pay the bills. In fact it even can cost her money in the long run. If her movie does not do well, she does not get her money back. In addition, to do the movie that she may not get any money for precludes her from picking up other work for which she could have been paid.

As my drinking level increased I started pumping her for gossip. One thing she said was something that makes sense but that I had not really thought of before. It was basically two things. One I had heard before. This celebutante dated a singer after his break-up but it was all for show and publicity for her. He didn’t mind because he just wanted something easy and uncomplicated and they both got what they wanted. In addition, this same person had been allegedly hit on by someone associated with her family. AP didn’t know if the girl went through with it or not though. The only reason she had heard about it is because some former friends of AP always joke about it.

We talked about drugs for awhile and she had some interesting things to say. She said they are always around and available whenever any star wants them. For women they are usually free and guys are always willing to buy coke or whatever for a girl just like anyone else would buy a drink for a woman in a bar. They always want something in return. AP knows if someone is headed to rehab or should be headed to rehab if the star is actually having to buy their own drugs. It means they are using way more than they should be because as long as it is recreational, someone will always be willing to pay for the star. When it gets to be abuse, the star is on the hook for the cost and that is where the trouble starts.

I honestly don’t remember much beyond that, except that I asked her if she ever made a sex tape and she said yes. She said though that after filming, she looked at the guy and realized she was not going to marry him and not going to be with him long-term and knew that would be trouble. So, she grabbed the tape and jumped up and down on it, pulled the tape out, and then cut it up into a million pieces. Plenty of people have asked since, but she has always said no.

Three people came up and asked for her autograph and also wanted a photo. Of course I got to be the photo guy. Unfamiliar digital cameras and drinking do not always go well together, especially when the subjects of the photo REALLY want their shot of AP and them to be perfect. Well then you shouldn't have asked the drunk guy to take the photo. One of the people wanted AP to record a voice mail message, but AP didn't want to. I did though and made some wise ass remark about Mel Gibson. I think I offended the woman though because she looked at me like I had lost my mind.

I was too drunk to drive and so she drove me home and then I must have told her to keep the car and I would pick it up today. I know this, because at about 4am my phone rang. One of my favorite clients got arrested for burglary and when I went downstairs to get my car it was not there. Cabs are always fun at 4am, especially when you are caught in the middle of still being a little drunk and the hangover is just starting to take over your body. I had to arrange his bail which is not unusual. He just is not very good at what he does, and so is arrested about once a year. He is such a nice guy and could do so many things with his life, but as he has told me many times, this is his career. He never gets any serious jail time because he rarely makes it inside the building which he is trying to burglarize.

AP=Alyson Hannigan

The celebutant is Nicole Richie & the guy is Joel Madden

The client arrested for burglary is Jason Wahler.

Femme Cafe said...

Celebutante is Chestica Simpson and the singer is John Mayer

I had a good laugh about the burglary guy :LOL:

Anonymous said...

The celebutant could be Paris Hilton and Travis Barker

Femme Cafe said...

again I say Chestica, they are the ones that have been having all sorts of photo-ops to show their showmance....

Nicole and Joel have been in hiding most of the time not all over the place for photo-ops like chestica and Joel

Nah - not NR and JM but Mandy Moore and DJ

How is Mandy Moore a celebutante and DJ AM a singer?

what movies are chosen for Paris?? and the girl can never excape a camera.

i just done see ETL hanging out with her

Anonymous said...

if it was Paris, shame on you for letting her drive you and your car home after all her recent activies! :0

Anonymous said...

It is soo John and Jessica, Perez calls them Fugs and Jugs-I think that is freakin' hilarious!

Lauren said...

Ent wasnt hanging out with Paris, he was just telling a story that his dinner date told him. and i totally thought it was Travis Barker and Paris, but Travis is the drummer for Blink 182??? not the singer

Anonymous said...

have john and jessica made it back to LA?? werent they photogaphed yesterday, so if the dinner was last night, they would have had to have made it back


also, her ormance with mayer is still going on..the girl from dinner made it sound past tense

Lauren said...

And I think the dinner date was with a comedian.

Anonymous said...

I do not mean this to be offensive. That said are some of you speed reading or just not very retentive readers. He said he had dinner with a B-list actress that he met at the Grammys. They (ETL and B-list) gossiped about:

A celebutante dated a singer after his break-up but it was all for show and publicity for her. He didn’t mind because he just wanted something easy and uncomplicated and they both got what they wanted. In addition, this same person had been allegedly hit on by someone associated with her family. AP didn’t know if the girl went through with it or not though.

HE DID NOT GO OUT TO DINNER WITH A CELEBUTANTE OR A SINGER.

thank you Excellent reader in KC. i was starting to get worried about the comments :)

Nicole Ritchie and Joel Madden and the family member who hit on her is his brother Benji.....hows that for my very first attempt at this???

Can anyone recall the parties that EL went to on Grammy night? Was one of them Clive Davis?

Anonymous said...

Someone associated with HER family hit on him (the singer)

Dorothy said...

I want to know why the burglary guy is ELs favorite client. Because he's arrested about once a year? Because he's a nice guy? Because he makes a living burglarizing places that he never actually enters?

On a side note, Phish would have one of their own take a picture when someone would ask to get photographed. Whomever took the pic would snap with everyone missing their head... or the band member cut out of the pic.

Anonymous said...

I say AP is Jessica Alba or Jessica Beil both are b list and both are more known for their bodies than their acting.

Nick Lachey for the singer when he briefly dated Kim Kardashwhatever her last name is.

Not sure who the client who got arrested is...

Dorothy said...

12:23 - was that meant as a question? Personally, I'd like it if the member of her family was male and was hitting on the male singer.

Anonymous said...

To answer a question asked earlier, John Mayer and J. Love Hewitt broke up.

Anonymous said...

John Mayer and Jennifer Love Hewett broke up YEARS ago.

brendalove@gmail.com said...

I have absolutely no reason for saying this, but for some reason when I read about the burglary guy I thought 'Jason Mewes'

Anonymous said...

It is past tense so I guess fugs and jugs doesn't work.

Anonymous said...

im new here but i just have a quick guess. could the guy that (maybe) dated someone associated with the girl's family be nick lachey and cacee cobb (jessica's old assistant)? i remember them being seen together a few times.

publicityiscandy said...

dunno who AP is, but the celebutante was Kim Kardashian and the singer off a break-up was Nick Lachey. she has a gazillion sisters.

also. jessica biel and jessica alba are constantly followed, especially biel in light of her real/fake/already over Reynold's baby, so there is no way that they are AP.

bungling burgler cold actually be anyone - ENT doesn't tell us if he's an actor, signer, mime or reality "star" - just that he's a nice guy and a crappy thief.

seriously, what happened to all the people who used to at least put out decent guesses? some of you are just vomiting names from US Weekly, it's kind of pathetic.

publicityiscandy said...

sorry for all the typos, indignant speed typing...

Anonymous said...

As I read this I thought of Sandy Bullock (produces movies) and she played Annie Porter in Speed, hence the nickname "AP"

Anonymous said...

Is AP - Pamela Anderson? or Jen Love Hewitt (I can see her driving and taking ETL out).

celebutante dated a singer after his break-up - Paris/Nick Carter

Ashley Simpson - Ryan Cabrerra
Papa Joe hit on him? or Jessica..

who knows .. this is always too hard to figure out..

Lauren said...

It could def be Kim K and Nick L. I think thats a good guess.

I dont think that AP is either Beil or Alba, or Sandra Bullock- i cant see her knowing anything about any celebutard... seems to mature for that.

I think AP is Heather Graham. AP could stand for Austin Powers. She is typecast and prob needs to change her image with the industry, and i looked on IMDB and was in some Film Festival movies- she could have invested some money. They are small films and seem like they would make it hard to pay the bills.... and I saw her on Sex and the City and she seems really nice. She also isnt worthy of being followed all the time, but is sometimes in the gossip rags...I just sold myself on Heather Graham... any takers???

Anonymous said...

So WireImage has pictures of a Nylon party and a GQ/Heineken Light party last night in LA, but of the two, the GQ/Heine one def fits the bill for what AP was being texted about. Lots of "who the hell?"dudes interspersed with B- and C- and D-list hot chicks.

I like Kim Kardashian and Nick Lachey for celebutante. And maybe O.J.hit on her!!! (Her father was his lawyer...)

Anonymous said...

Could AP be Amy Smart? She is the type who would get lots of scripts but have to audition for roles, plus she is not much in the public eye, so getting a pics of her might be rare.

Anonymous said...

I am going to stick with my origional Nick Lachey quess too...

Anonymous said...

Lauren--I think Heather Graham is a good guess for AP--but didn't we hear that she has some jagoff boyfriend who was belittling her at Sundance? Maybe they broke up? The other people being guessed are married (Sandra Bullock)or hooked up (JL Hewitt.) I know EL didn't say he was dating her,but I think it would probably be somebody unattached....

Is it just me or the blind items becoming more vague.... Am I the only one noticing subtle changes on this blog? Please mote: I dont have any conspiracy theories ala new writer etc...

anon KC!

God love you!!

Can you come EVERYDAY and explain the BI's? I would apreciate it immensely. Thanks

(unless this is the person I gave the link to on ONTD... if so ... YAY for you again)

Anonymous said...

This may be a stretch...Tara Reid was at Clive Davis' party, and she has been working on changing her image. I don't know if she would be considered b-list, but she might not have to audition for roles like "American Pie". She also travels in the same crowd as the celebutards and would have the inside scoop on that, which I think was talking about Nick and Kim K. I'll bet that the person associated with her family who hit on her was O.J.

Invisible said...

nick/paris thing was ANYTHING but uncomplicated... remember the abuse accusations and jealous BS...

so ill vote nick/kim




AP= ok

im good with the jason wahler guy cuz he is such a LOSER

as for the party people... ill say EVERYONE with a penis in hollywood... *smirk*

imcshe said...

Now THIS is the kind of stuff I like from this blog! The personalized stories are fascinating, and makes EL seem more real than other blogs.

No guesses from me though; I'm never any good at that :)

Anonymous said...

Bobby K. didn't practice criminal law. He was part of OJ's team of attys.
AP doesn't know if the girl went through with it... If this is about Kim & OJ, aside from the obvious hurl factor, I seriously doubt she would have gone through with it. Her dad was convinced of OJ's guilt once he heard the DNA evidence, and ended the friendship once the trial was over. Just a bit of background and not to rehash old news. Also, Kim, as we know, didn't destroy her sex tape.
ALL that said, I have no clue who this BI's talking about.
Juju

Anonymous said...

Juju, there are a few different things going on here. The person EL had dinner with is the 1st one and she is the one who had a sex tape which she destroyed. Kim K is the guess we all have for the 2nd part of the story. The part where the celebutaunt was involved with someone who just broke up with someone else, Nick Lachey...

Sorry, I just wanted to clear it up for you..

it could be someone (AP) telling ENT about nick lachey and kim k and the person in her family that hit on him was her step-brother, brody jenner. her mother married bruce jenner who is brody's father.

Anonymous said...

sorry about the brody jenner remark. it definitely said girl.

Jem said...

I like the idea that AP is Heather Graham. Hasn't she been mentioned before as being friends with EL? I think

Anonymous said...

He met AP at the grammy's, so it is probably someone without a date. Or a date that was uninterested in her.

Anonymous said...

was heather g at the grammy's?

i heart brendalove!
jason mewes...TOO funny! somehow i don't see him even up to planning a burglary, much less instigating one. i can, however see him needing bailing out occasionally!
hah!

Mia said...

jason mewes and kevin smith have both been very upfront about mewes's troubled past, and have been open that he's only been allowed to be a part of the smith family still because he's been clean for quite some time. smith has a blog on his fan based site and jason's story of addiction and their relationship/friendship since adolescence is actually quite remarkable... If anyone would be called at 4am to bail mewes out of jail, I bet it would be smith and not their ent lawyer. good guess tho.

I doubt AP is Amanda Peet as she just gave birth. And I agree with everyone that people should start to learn how to read. It's very annoying to scroll down this far just to read the same [false] guesses over and over again.

Anonymous said...

anon 3:01, Good guess, he mentions Tara Reid more than once in his Grammy blog and how he talked to her and she was actually very nice. Maybe AP IS American Pie?? The only other one he mentions is Scarlett. He says solid B lister, is Tara considered that?

jeeze and hez are probably not guessing since they are now the blog authors... n'est ce pas?

Ent is friends with Lauren Graham, not Heather.

But this is a NEW friend--he's been friends with Lauren for awhile.

AP is Amanda Peet. She is friendly with Matthew Perry, who is friendly with Lauren Graham...both of whom we already know are friendly with ENT.

AP did have a baby some time ago, but that doesn't mean she can't leave the house or have a drink.
