Today's Blind Items

Let's stick with the A-List. This married Academy Award winning actress recently went into Bloomingdale's at The Beverly Center Mall. No big deal right? Well, she went to the men's section. No big deal right? Well she grabbed a package of tighty whities and a men's t-shirt, went into the changing room and came out with the empty packages. She paid for her purchase with cash and walked out.

Got to be Julia Roberts. She looks like she would wear men's underwear. And being pregnant? It's probably way more comfy...

LC said...

^ good guess with the Julia Roberts.

I don't think Faye Dunaway is married.

BEthee said...

HILARY Swank first came to mind.

amy said...

mookie said...

that's gross!

wearing underwear w/o washing it first?

ewwwwwwwwwwwww.

Stacy said...

I'm going with some older ladies, Meryl Streep or Helen Mirren.

Hmm, let's see it could be:

Nicole Kidman
Gwyneth Paltrow
Julia Roberts
Susan Sarandon

All are married. I'm not carzy about this BI b/c I don't see the scandal in this for being BI. But I'm torn between Gwyneth and Julia.
TB

Bethee said...

oops, i dont know why i thought she married her agent. she is out.

Anonymous said...

Gwyneth Paltrow

betsnup said...

Hmm...why can't I remember when Julia Roberts won an Academy Award? And, of course, the obvious question of: why am I too lazy to look it up myself? :)

Anonymous said...

Julia won for her role in Erin Brokavich (sp?)

betsnup said...

Thanks, anon 12:50 - I actually just went and searched to find that out. I probably couldn't remember because I've never seen the movie...

And I have no clue who this is...I'm not really feeling JR for the answer though.

plotterist said...

It was one of those wasted Oscars - when has Julia done anything that deserved an award?


I love gossip like this - the details of celeb life where they think they are absolutely normal, but they're still freaks inside the Hwood bubble.

Anyone here been pregnant before? How would those tightie whities fit during the huge months?

Anonymous said...

This so generic w/ no clues and totally non BI material. Really who cares? Now had it been an actor walking out wearing women's undies......

Twisted Sister said...

Why are the most interesting blind items the ones copied from other sites?

Surely someone in the business can do better than this???!!!

louella said...

ruh roh, twisted sister, I hope you haven't unleashed those Laboutin wearing experts with the naysaying.

This has got to be the stupidist blind item I've read in a long time. Can't believe I wasted my time on reading it.

louella said...

There are great daily blinds at the 3 AM mirror site called Wicked Whispers. Click on more if today's date doesn't come up.

Anonymous said...

Anon 12:45, the scandal is that there's some A List bitch out there who wears underwear without washing it first. That IS disgusting, as someone mentioned already.

Anonymous said...

There was an SNL years ago that Nicole Kidman hosted (when still married to Tom Cruise) and she imitated the Risky Business dance Cruise did in a similiat outfit mentioned in the blind item. Could be her.

louella said...

The Great Unwashed Underwear Scandal!!! Oscar winning actress possibly has butt rash from wearing new, chemically treated but UNWASHED skivvies!!! Updates at 11.

Anonymous said...

As a pregnant woman, I can attest to the discomfort of regular women's underwear. I'm voting for Julia. And I don't blame her one bit.

Anonymous said...

Julia is pregnant; maybe she finds men's briefs more comfortable -- some pregnant women perspire heavily, so the t-shirt may come in handy, or maybe it helps to corral "the twins."

Anonymous said...

Julia said she likes wearing men's underpants on Oprah b4.

Twisted Sister said...

Louella, not to worry. If we come across any, we'll give them all wedgies!

Nicole Kidman is more than 5 ft 10 tall. It gives you more choice browsing the men's section to find something matching your size, especially when you're kinda flat-chested.

bionic bunny! said...

i can see a pregnant woman doing this.. starting the day in too small underwear. think about it, though.
men's underwear and t-shirts come in packages.
women's stuff hangs on racks or sits around on tables where who knows has been pawing through them. i don't have a good guess as to WHO, but the WHY makes a lot of since. chemically treated beats
germically treated, ANY day.
i'll have to remember that.

plotterist said...

Julia it is then! She admits to liking men's undies, and we have the testimony of a pregnant woman that regular women's unders are uncomfortable as hell.

I bet men's whities aren't very tight, enabling a man to claim he wears 34s as the waistline expands.

Anonymous said...

Not Nicole Kidman because she's in Australia shooting her new Baz Luhrman epic. She's been over there for about a month already and it's something like an 8 month shoot.

Gwyneth is too much of an uptight beyotch to do something like this.

Julia on the other hand is Ms. Natural. And preggo. I can totally see this being her. Even though she's been in Texas shooting a movie for a bit. Maybe she flew back here on weekends.

If it wasn't for the "married" part my first guess would have been Diane Keaton.

Anonymous said...

Sandra Bullock has admitted to liking men's underwear as well. She's also married. I'd go with either Julia or Sandra.

fo real said...

Thanks EL!

I enjoyed that bI.

no clue

Anonymous said...

I love men's boxer briefs- so comfy.....though now I just wear boy-cut panties......

Anonymous said...

judi dench?

Anonymous said...

Has Sandra won an award?

Anonymous said...

I would guess Julia. A pregnant friend of mine had trouble with her bladder while pregnant, especially when she would get sick. I would imagine that Julia could have a weak bladder after having twins already+she's pregnant. The baby could be putting pressure on her bladder. Homegirl might have needed a change of underpants and was without. It's not unusual when your pregnant.

Anonymous said...

meryl streep?

Anonymous said...

sounds like Julia R. Sorry EL but this BI is so lame.

Anonymous said...

Joanne Woodward.

Geez, people. It could be anyone!!

Anonymous said...

couldn't care less. all girls have worn their man's (clean) undies the day after a roll in the hay at said boyfriend's house. totally not a big deal. most guys think we look adorably hot, in fact. yeah, it's kinda odd that she bought them at a store, but chances are she was preggo, and chances are the mens undies section was more inviting than all the lacy thongs in the lingerie dept. who cares... not us. try again, please. 4 for friday better be good (kidding, no pressure)
lexi

(oh enty, half the girls on this thread want to wear your clean undies the next day)

amy said...

plotterist, it also depends on where they place the waistband!

plotterist said...

Amy, I've taken up the habit of rubbing my BF's Buddha Belly for good luck. It hangs conspicuously over his size 34s. He is not amused, but still buys 34s.

Mooshki said...

I don't know about the undies, but men's underwear t-shirts are very soft and comfy. I love 'em. Maybe I'll have to give the tighty-whities a try.

Anonymous said...

I agree with the Meryl Streep guess as well!

F.

Anonymous said...

Julia - easy answer. She's admitted in the past to liking men's underwear and she's prego and the underwear are more comfy.

Also for the posters who guessed Sandra B. or Susan S. Sandra B. has never won an Oscar and Susan S. is not married. She & Tim Robbins are happily unmarried.

Julia makes the most sense to me,
and...big deal,if she needed to
have big comfy undies to fit
around that baby temporarily,who
can blame her?
