Today's Blind Items

#1-This lead singer of a multi-platinum 80's band which was an MTV staple has been secretly in rehab for the past month. While there for his drinking, he is also required by a court to undergo anger management counseling as a result of domestic violence issues.

#2-This B list brunette actress who has been in exactly four movies this year hooked up with her married leading man, A-list co-star on one of the films. He's still married and living with his wife, but it didn't stop our happy couple from going house hunting over the weekend.

Wonders who will be the first to speed read the first BI and guess Richie Sambora...

Can't be Brett Michaels for #1.. he's not married and will be filming a reality show looking "Rock of Love with Bret Michaels" to meet his future girlfriend/wife... and Poison are touring since the end of may to promote their new CD...

Anonymous said...

Richie Sambora isn't lead singer.. he's lead guitar. And he's not married.. divorced from Heather Locklear...

Anonymous said...

BI doesn't say he has to be married - just referenced domestic issues. Could be from a recent marraige.

Domestic issue doesn't need to be married at all. Could just be a girlfriend.

Ok, America in Holland, I'll be the first to admit that I did the speed-read thing and thought, "How is this a blind item? We all know Richie is in rehab." Luckily I read it again... :)

Oh, and I have no guesses, but I will say that I have always thought Bret Michaels is a sexy beast.

What's going on with Nikki Sixx these days??

Hello kitty I believe I can answer your question:

Motley is currently in Europe and then Nikki is releasing his Heroin Diaries book I think in August? He is also working with Kellly Gray on their clothing line, Royal Underground.

I have been checking IMDB for someone B list, brown hair in four movies. The only one I found so far is Maria Menounos. She has only been in 4 actual movies--but I can't match her with a married male (A list) co star. Not easy.
Back to IMDB.

Cruelovin said...

I think that #1 MIGHT be Vince Neil. He was in rehab earlier this year, and if I remember correctly, he got arrested a couple of years ago for smacking a prostitute at the Moonlight Bunny Ranch? That may fit the anger managment/domestic violence?

Boy George?

Actually, I like the Simon le Bon Bon guess...

hello kitty said...

CRUELOVING -- see the comment about Nikki Sixx -- Crue are on tour, so not Vince.

Anonymous said...

There is a movie called Live! ??
I am too lazy to go back and see if we brought this up for the BI about the MTV awards after party. But, iam guessing the "live" girl getting hit on at the party must be in that movie.

Anonymous said...

#2-Another brunette with 4 movies: Natalie Portman

In the 4 movies, she stars with:
Jude Law (not married)
Eric Bana (married), not A-list
Dustin Hoffman(married), A-list, but old...
Jason Bateman (married), not A-List
Adrien Brody (not married)
Owen Wilson (not married)

Eva was a guess in this BI and she stars in the movie (she's the only big name). And she was at the movie awards.

kellysirkus said...

Since Ent made a point to call attention to Molly Sims' shirt, could it be Robert Plant? Although, I feel like they were a 70's band, not 80's, idk. Just jumped out at me that he is drawing big arrows to the shirt. Maybe he just means it's his shirt, and she "borrowed" it from him -- which would sort of point to her as a possibility for AP.
As to #2, the guess for Maria Menudo, I always heard that she had longterm "secret" relationship with the Exec Producer of Access Hollywood/ET.

Anonymous said...

Kelly,
I only see 2 movies this year for Maria on imdb.com.

I really like the Simon LaBon(sp?) guess for #1.

So, Tracee, do you think it might be her in the MTV after party BI that got hit on by the a list actor in a relationship? Or did u guys already figure that out because i haven't been back to that thread in awhile. You know, when ent said "liveish girl".

I know I am off subject i was just really stuck on that BI

mary mac said...

I'm going to go with Rosario Dawson and Nicholas Cage.

Anonymous said...

Anon 1:59,
I thought it was Eva then, but I have no clue. Everyone through out some good guesses: Ashley Tisdale, Jessica Alba, Heidi from the Hills. But I don't think we're ANY closer. Hopefully, Ent will reveal "IT" soon. LOL!

Anonymous said...

Ooh what about Eva Mendes and Nicolas Cage. Just saw Ghost Rider ad. He's a-list and married.

-Lucky

mary mac said...

Simon le Bon would be a real shocker. He is known to be a womanizer and a partier, but would be really surprised to hear he beat on Yasmine. They've been married a long time. I know he cheats on her, but they are a highly celebrated couple in England.

mary mac said...

Wow...Eva Mendes also a very good guess...

I think it's Nic Cage with either Eva or Rosario...but aren't Eva and Rosario pretty much the same person?

Anonymous said...

I forgot that Eva starred with Nic in Ghost Rider. Hmm..he's know to jump from woman to woman quickly. Go Lucky! Now i really think it's Eva.

Mary Mac, that's so wrong (eva/rosario)! But must be somewhat true because I busted a laugh! Here's what I found about Duran Duran that makes me think it's Simon. Thanks wikipedia.

Duran Duran have sold more than 60 million records.

Duran Duran will be a headline act for the Princess Diana memorial concert on 1 July 2007, and will take part in the massive Live Earth concerts on 7 July 2007. (maybe that's why it's secretive right now)

The MTV cable channel and the band were launched at about the same time, and each had a hand in propelling the other to greater heights.

Anon 1:04 had a list of 80's bands, but there are a few others that were multi-platinum staples - Def Leppard for one, the Police, Journey, Rush, AC/DC, YES, Asia, and so on. Ent doesn't give us any clues on what type of music, but MTV not only actually played music back in the 80's, but they actually had a wide variety of types! Am I dating myself?

Breaker said...

#1 who would we still care about today? I like Bon Jovi for this one.

#2 no clue..

Anonymous said...

You don't have to be married to the person for it to be domestic violence. He could've been living with his girlfriend (or partner, if he's gay) and beat the crap outta them. It's STILL domestic violence.

Anonymous said...

Oh dear, I hope it's not Simone Le Bon either. Although Duran Duran was in regular rotation on MTV for years and years. This item recently appeared in popbitch:

" Duran Duran's Roger Taylor has just celebrated his second wedding in the exclusive Jalousie Plantation, St Lucia. The rest of the band were there to see him take his vows. Guests in the hotel were annoyed to be confronted by a very loud Simon Le Bon shouting 'You can't take photos, they have an exclusive deal with OK magazine, they won't get the money if you take photos". But very much enjoyed the sight soon after of Yasmin Le Bon shouting at Simon "Why do you always have to get so drunk."

Could be harmless incident though.

Other thoughts: Bono (hey, he's got the weight of the 3rd world on his shoulders). I like the Vince Neil guess, he's always a possibility.

Anonymous said...

#1 is Eddie Van Halen. he is divorced, but has a girlfriend.

#2 - Wow. i can't think of anyone.

Jem said...

Not Sebastian, hes definately not in rehab. I drank with him in LA once though and he drinks like a beast.

Nikki isn't a singer. Could be Vince, I ran into him in Vegas a few months ago and he was so drunk he could barely talk. But I don't want to believe the domestic violence thing 'cause Motley Crue is my favourite band ever! lol. I'll go with Jon Bon Jovi?

Jem said...

Okay - not Vince if the Crue are on tour! I didn't even realise they were still on tour, its likethey never stop. oops. Thank goodness.

Jem said...

ah Eddie Van Halen makes sense too actually. I'll end comment spamming now. lol

Anonymous said...

Eddie Van Halen is not a lead singer.

Anonymous said...

I have to say negative for Brett Michaels. I live in Nashville an up until recently he spent a lot of time here. Gossip is that yes he loves the ladies, but they love him back because of the amount of money and attnetion he gives them:) No words on him being abusive whatsoever.
Won't be Jon Bon Jovi either, 10 because he just filmed an acoustic something or other for VH1 (or MTV) and also because his wife is a karate champ who could kick his ass easily.

Faerie said...

Are some of you still confused as to who AP is???

Anonymous said...

Agree Anon @3:12 PM

Dire Straits, Depeche Mode (though Dave Gahan is such an emo crybaby he would probably hit himself before he hit someone else, then write a song about it) ABC, Culture Club, Genesis... There are many who were staples back in the day.

SA

Anonymous said...

Can't be Simon LeBon. Duran Duran are playing a gig in NYC Sunday night for the fan club.

Besides....Simon has surely always been a drunk, but he's never been the violent type.

Anonymous said...

Actually Dave Gahan is a good guess.
Has anyone seen him recently?

Simon Le Bon has been seen out and about in London, and has done press interviews within the last month, so I don't think it is him, unless the dates have been fudged.

Anonymous said...

How about Mark Knopfler from Dire Straits?

MTV staple = Money For Nothing = lyrics "I want my MTV".

Can't be effed researching the whole 'multi platinum' thing.

Anonymous said...

Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode is not a bad guess. He had a wretched drug problem in the past & seems unstable. Plus there was a BI last year that could have been him- about a lead singer on tour who had relapsed.

Anonymous said...

Hmm, what's Peter Gabriel been up to?
Anyone else remember Power Station?

SA

Anonymous said...

oooh on the Gahan thing, sorry I threw him out. I did it just because he kept hitting the news in the early 90's. Not quite sure but I think he holds the record for top suicide attempts that failed and seemed staged each.and.every.time. That's why I mentioned I couldn't see him pulling a Sid and Nancy sort of deal, hurting someone else as he obviously fails at hurting himself. Who knows though.

Those of you who have followed him since and think it very well could be him, I bow to your expertise.
Hope whomever it is gets his life straight and doesn't use rehab as a paid vacation of sorts.

Jon Bon Jovi. It would definitely be secret; it would tarnish his halo. Ritchie might have gone in just to cover for him.

I am sure the first isn't Simon Le Bon.

Will the answers be posted somewhere. I want to know!

Anonymous said...

Ent does provide "reveals" now and then, but I doubt he'd do it re a rehab/addiction item.

Eva Mendes for #2. Actor is Nic Cage.

Anonymous said...

The singer is Stephen Tyler.

The actress is Liv Tyler with Adam Sandler.

Anonymous said...

I too sped read the number 1 item and thought Richie Sambora especially since I have heard that he is a mean drunk, also there was a blind item about domestic violence and alcohol with an actress and a rocker that I thought was them.

Anonymous said...

I remember Power Station. Robert Palmer was the lead singer. It's not him, since he's dead.
I don't think Peter Gabriel was in a band, was he?
Robert Smith of The Cure? (popular too late maybe, more like 90s?)
I still like Simon Le Bon as a guess.
David Lee Roth? (but who would really care)
Axl Rose? (again, who cares?)

NARC said...

HMMN, TWO LATINAS.

MUST BE THE SAME PERSON.

GOOD TO SEE MARY'S AS IGNORANT AS EVER.

Peter Gabriel was the founder/original lead singer of Genesis!!

NO! It cant be Dave Gahan, it just cant.

my first thought was axl rose. *shrug*

and Eva Mendes seems to be getting quite the reputation. I hope its not unfounded.

#1. Vince Neil
#2. Eva Mendes

my 1st thought was Axel 2 as i remeber a few years back hearing about his DV issues

Anonymous said...

It's not Simon LeBon. He's not in rehab...Has been out and about...in fact, they are doing a gig this weekend in NYC. Also, while he likes getting his drink on and flirting with the ladies...his wife, Yasmine, is no shrinking violet.

Anonymous said...

Hee hee hee- this is 1:04. I listed bands that had Platinum HAIRED members. I'm such an ass. I was in a work-rush yesterday. I missed that it was platinum records, not platinum hair. Gee, I was so confused!

Anonymous said...

The more I think about this, the more I think that it could be Joe Elliot.
I've been looking at MTV stats, and Def Leppard were undoubtedly an MTV staple throughout the 1980s, most definitely multi-platinum sales-wise and alcohol related problems have plagued the band throughout their career.

Kevin Spacey said...

David Lee Roth anyone?

hello kitty said...

Why is everyone guessing some white new wave or metal band? Why couldn't it be soul or rap?

Anonymous said...

I like the Stephen Tyler #1, Liv Tyler/Adam Sandler #2 guess. But -- what about Sting? They would certainly keep that quiet. And didn't they just go back on tour and really suck? Like the drummer said they sucked and he did too? Anybody else read that??

Anonymous said...

Liv Tyler is married too. Wouldn't the BI mention the b-lister is also married? I think she should be ruled out.

-Boo

Anonymous said...

FAERIE --

I still don't know who AP is...can you help us who are (still) out of the loop out? Thanks!

I was thinking it could be Tara Reid...

mary mac said...

Liv Tyler is not only married, she just had a kid and hasn't done 4 movies this year. Besides...no one as rich, famous and beautiful as Liv would have ANY interest in Adam. No offense, but the guy isn't exactly Valentino if you know what I mean...

I still think it's either Eva or Rosario and Nic Cage.

As far as the singer goes, I'm glad it's not Simon le BonBon. Also, one of my clients is close friends with Def Leppard and they are coming on tour. I doubt he's in rehab.

The Jon Bon Jovi guess would be unbelievable and someone would bust out that story huge. I don't see Jon's wife putting up with that crap.

It's got to be someone we would be surprised about, but I don't think it's someone still out really making a lot of records like Bon Jovi is. I think it's definitely an 80's band.

Anonymous said...

I like the Eva and Rosario guesses w/ Nic Cage. Note about Eva, she had her hands all over Gerard Butler at the MTV Awards last week. Might not be here. Then again, feh. When has that stopped anyone in H-wood?

Anonymous said...

Hmmm, now I'm thinking maybe Sammy Hagar (took over for DLR in Van Halen in 1985 and had major hits). He had to cancel some shows in May apparently due to illness.

See Me Repeat Me said...

I don't know if I like dismissing Simon Le Bon for the #1. His attitude problem is known far and wide amongst the fan massive and I think it would actually be a great benefit to him if he did go through anger management counseling, not to mention rehab for an alcohol problem we all know he has. Though Yasmin is definitely "no shrinking violet", who's to say she hasn't negotiated major things in exchange for not blabbing about any domestic issues they've had? And why can't "domestic issues" just be about having knock-down, drag-out blowsy fights? I'm sure Yasmin could definitely stick up for herself, so maybe this is one of those cases where the woman is no victim but in fact is doing fine, thank you very much.
