For everyone who reads this blog because of the blind items, you are in for a treat this week. Yesterday I had brunch with one of my favorite old producers. A man who has been working in films basically since there were films to be made. He started in the business when he was 10 and now he is pushing 90. He is a great person and a great source, and he finally followed through on a story he's been teasing me with for a few years. It is a long blind item and I should have it done by Wednesday. If it doesn't make your jaw drop, then you are the most jaded person in the world. It definitely made my jaw drop. I had heard rumors, but even the rumors were not as good as reality.
After brunch I ran into another friend who told me something great as well, but I didn't believe him. He showed it to me, and now you are going to hear about that today.
But first, I need to clarify a blind item. (This was from August 17)
#1 In front of Yamashiro last night, this female singer who was wearing even less than in her music videos was doing everything but taking off the rest of her clothes in order to get a music producer to take her for a “ride” in his brand new red Bentley. Her approach consisted of much bending over (clearly showing what she was bringing to the party), using two fingers and her tongue to suck on a mint, and clearly explaining how important fresh breath was in her life. Her fellow female band member looked really uncomfortable and the producer ultimately turned down the offer. The two singers left in a very cheap rental car but not before they stiffed the valet. When the singer's was asked by her fellow band member why she wasn't tipping the valet, the singer was heard saying, “looking at my body should be tip enough.”
When I saw this happen, I mis-identified the singer wearing almost nothing. The singer wearing almost nothing looks a great deal like the assumed leader of the group, and from 30 feet away at night, I thought it was the assumed leader, but is in fact the person probably considered 2nd in the group heirarchy. Also, the producer is white, not black as has been guessed.
Now, here is the one for today.
About two years ago, this A list director known almost as much for the number of women he f**ks as for his directing, decided to keep an electronic journal/blackbook of the woman he had been with, wanted to be with and only heard about. It included their names, reputation, if they were good in bed, if they were bi, if they would have sex to get a role, anything and everything was included. One day he shared his journal with another A list director friend who also has a reputation and that director started adding all of his info as well and where the women overlapped, both reports were included. The two directors decided they wanted to be able to share their information with friends, other directors, and producers and so created an invitation only blog which now has several hundred entries and has been updated as recently as last week. It's like a wiki sex book but these two directors are the only ones who can edit the information or add anything. The only reports that are added are those of the 15 or so people who have access to the site and have had first hand knowledge of the women. No secondhand or rumors are allowed. No actors are allowed access to the site, and no married men either. If one of the 15 gets married or starts living with someone, the password is changed.
