Today's Blind Items

#1 While it seems that everyday there are new accusations leveled at Britney Spears about her child raising skills, and the fact that Protective Services seems to live at her house, the reality is that she is not the only celebrity to have faced an investigation from Protective Services. This award winning television actress on a long running hit show was A list for several years and now she is doing the slow slide to B list and the inevitable Love Boat when it returns. Oh, yes it will return. Anyway, she and her husband have not always been the model parents. Seems that the grandparents have basically taken over all parenting because our actress and her husband would often forget to feed their infant, leave him/her for an hour or two while they went and ate lunch or dinner, and would never change the diaper leading to severe rashes. After two visits from CPS, the grandparents promised to take over the duties and are always with the baby except during photo ops when our actress makes the world believe she is a much better parent than reality.

My first thought was Cox Arquette.

EmilyR said...

Debra Messing

Kelly said...

my first guess was Cox as well

Janele said...

My first guess was Gwyneth

Janele said...

But I know she's not on a hit show - so I guess Cox

Leia said...

courtney is always seen with coco, i'm thinking it's a smaller star, more desperate. i mean, could you see courtney on a love boat show?

wood1107 said...

Yeah, I could. But has Cox won an award?

dee135 said...

I was immediately on the Cox-Arquette bandwagon but after a little digging I found that Cox's father has passed away, as well as Arquette's mother..both before Coco was born....so I'm assuming that this item is not about them...

Megan said...

courtney has only ever won tv guide awards - does that even count? i guess maybe.

Rebecca said...

not patricia heaton???

this is repugnant. What kind of narcisistic low life treats their children this way? I know plenty of sick sad people do this kind of crap, but I still find this to be absolutely horrible each time I read about it. So glad to hear that the grand parents were around and I SINCERELY hope this one gets revealed.

Bryn said...

Lisa Kudrow? Won an emmy in 97. Married with one child. Parents still living, I think.

George said...

I reeeeeally hope it is Patricia Heaton, but I think her kids are older. I guess it prob is Cox.

Miss X said...

If Cox's parents are deceased, it isn't her.

Patricia Heaton has 4 kids, all older.

It sounds like they only have one kid.

This person also doesn't have a nanny.

Why not Debra Messing?

fo real said...

holla,
I doubt Cox as she is NOT an award winner being shut out each award season.

Heaton no way she has like 4 sons? and they are a little older.

So maybe ... ya know it's to sad that it has kids involved hope it's fake.

Calla said...

It just says "the grandparents." How do you know it's the actresses' parents? It could be her in-laws.

Paul said...

Found this in Debra Messing IMDB and it made me laugh for some reason: Although her son Roman is not deaf, she has taught him a few words in sign language to make communication easier for him until he's more able to talk.

ashleybear said...

I'm going with Debra Messing. Everyone knows what a bitch she is, it fits very well, since you don't see her too often with her kid...

Mooshki said...

God, what I wouldn't give to have the Love Boat come back. Tastiest cheese ever.

Calla said...

How about Helen Hunt? She has a 3 year old.

Twisted Sister said...

Helen Hunt doesn't have a husband, though. I don't think it's any of the ones already mentioned. I think we're overlooking someone here.

Calla said...

Calista Flockhart? The "Oh yes, it will return" could refer to Harrison Ford's "Return of the Jedi"

yellow said...

Jennifer Gardner.
A-list with Alias and rapidly slipping into oblivion.
won both SAG & GG
Pimps out her baby to the paparazzi at every possible occasion, always suspected that the kid was being treated as a prop.

Shereen said...

Tori Spelling. Long running show = Beverly Hills 90210. Love Boat = creation of Aaron Spelling. And she has a reality show "he is a much better parent than reality."

Calla said...

Could "model parents" be a clue? Like maybe the actress started out as a model?

Calla said...

Jennifer Garner sounds like an excellent guess...but I would be shocked if that were the case!!

Calla said...

Tori Spelling is a great guess also....especially tying in all the clues!! Seems more plausible, too...fits right in with her man-stealing ho reputation. ;)

Fabiola Thing said...

Why do people act as if celebs don't exist outside of the pics we see of them in magazines?
Maybe we don't see Debra Messing with her kid because she doesn't call the paps everytime she leaves the house with her baby.

ashley said...

Tori Spelling is a good guess but what about that celebuwhore Jordan from the UK isn't she A list there?

temats said...

Hmm on Tori Spelling, some of the clues fit, but 1) she has a nanny 2) there is no way Candy Spelling would be that helpful and 3) Dean's mother passed away and family lives in Canada.

Yes, that is too much to know about them, but I like their show, Inn Love - it is cute!

Calla said...

I just realized something...I'm not sure Tori Spelling has ever been considered "A list" ...

Hez said...

Still thinking this over, but I just had to say... Love Boat, Shmove Boat.

For me, it's Fantasy Island or bust.

(God, there's a phrase I can use in my everyday life if I ever heard one.)

Miss X said...

Can you think of parents that are photographed enjoying time without their kid? That might help clue us in.

And I don't think it's Jen G. She's still making movies and is doing a play right now.

K said...

I don't think it's Courtney Cox because of how long it took her to get pregnant and how long and hard she supposedly tried to get pregnant. That's just a guess, but I'd hope that if you try to get pregnant for as long they did, you'd appreciate the baby all the more. Also she's not exactly award winning.

I can't imagine it's Jennifer Garner since she's pictured with the baby what seems like all the time which is more than the photo ops seem to suggest.

My guess? I have no idea. Maybe Debra Messing? But I hope the grandparents take the baby and the woman forgets she has one. That idea doesn't seem so far fetched considering how she apparently treats the poor baby.

yellow said...

Jen G. spent the summer pimping out her kid while angling for a tv talk show around babies. As soon as that was a no go that kid, that was daily on the gossip blogs, nearly vanished from the face of the Earth.

What better sign that the movie/tv career is not doing well than going for the stage? That is a tell tale sign that you are not getting the offers you want.

Majik said...

What parents DON'T enjoy a little time without their kid?? I mean, really....we all need a break sometimes, don't we?

My guess is that someone has brought this story back from the future....it's Nicole Richie next year!!!

Majik said...

Sorry...comment directed toward that made by miss x--I'm in no way saying that the behaviour of this particular couple is okay...just wanted to clarify (I reread it and almost flamed m'self...lol).

jax said...

I was on 'board' with Tori until award winning...but she was on Love Boat as a tot.

Miss X said...

Majik, you are totally right. I didn't mean to imply parents should constantly be with their kids. To clarify my comment, I meant parents who are regularly photographed without the kid and don't seem to take him/her much of anywhere.

Now this might be crazy but what about SJP? Has she done much since SATC?

hannah said...

Yellow, Violet Affleck has not disappeared from the spotlight. A bunch of the blogs I read, mention her on a regular basis. I think that there have been too many candid photos of the Affleck/Garner fam out with their child for her to be used as a prop for a photo op.

Paul- as silly as you may find it, baby sign language it VERY common. Most of the parents I know (myself included) have taught our children basic signs to help them communicate their needs before they can talk.

Most of the people mentioned so far are not people I would consider "A list". Also notice how Ent didn't say her husband was famous an actor.

brendalove@gmail.com said...

How the hell can you forget to feed an infant? They scream until they are fed.

I'm trying to find a way I can blame Affleck for this.

jindi said...

^^ a HEROIN-addicted affleck and enabler Jennifer Dishwater would be too busy to feed their baby!

see how easy that was ;)

mulder said...

Affleck's parents live in Boston; Garner's in West Virginia. Doubt it's them.

Could be Tori, but she's not an award-winning actress. She's barely an actress.

How do you forget to feed a child unless you're drunk or stoned?

Gillian Anderson had a baby a year ago. Could be her.

Suzanne said...

How abut Leah Remini? She does schmoopy photo ops and is sliding down to B list. Did she ever win an award?

mulder said...

Nope. Not Gillian Anderson. She lives in London.

Not Sarah Jessica.

Not Mariska.

trashtalker said...

I thought of Leah Remini, but IMDb doesn't have any awards listed for her.

I don't know if any of these ladies were A list, but they've had their first babies fairly recently: Keri Russell (plenty of pics with her and the baby), Jenna Elfman, Kim Fields, Julie Bowen, Kellie Martin, Kelly Rutherford and Annabeth Gish. Also, Amanda Peet and Diane Farr, but I don't think they've been on a long-running show.

some anon trix said...

Lucy Lawless?

Cosmic said...

Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin

GammaGirl said...

This one is HARD! I think we have canceled out Courtney Cox and I don't think its Lisa Kudrow, her son was born in '98, this sounds like it occurred sometime in the past 5 years.

I think Debra Messing seems to be the best fit.

Susan said...

what about Anne Heche?

kellysirkus said...

oh, come on, NO ONE is going to say Brangelina?

Jon Voight was just seen leaving the Waldorf. Did anyone check if he smelled like Baby Wipes and Formula?

some anon trix said...

I don't think Angelina Jolie is a television actress on a long-running hit show?

mulder said...

Allison Janney doesn't seem the type.

Rachel Griffiths?

MandyPandy said...

mulder said...

The blind best fits Messing and/or Heaton.

We need an award-winning TV actress on a long-running show who has had a child.

Enty didn't say WHEN this happened.

Esq. said...

"Da plane! Da plane!" I remember it well, Hez, and agree that Fantasy Island always seemed slightly more...sophisticated than The Love Boat. On the other hand, who could resist Doc's charms, or not giggle at Gopher's antics? Julie's teeth always bugged me, though. I was a kid and that two hour block of t.v. was a given every week. OK, enough - Debra Messing seems to fit, unfortunately, because I've always liked her.

trashtalker said...

Oh, that Enty is sneaky. I did a search on this site and found the following caption from last May: "A mini-series on television is one step away from cruise ships, but Debra Messing still looks good. Eric will be the purser." Sounds like Debs is our winner. Or, in this case, loser.

Wow - I am surprised at the Cox-Arquette guesses. Really surprised. David was just such a nice gracious person that I can never imagine him, or Courtney, doing anything like that. I really think they are good, responsible people. I really do.

Kelly said...

that would be cool if it was Katie Holmes ( dawsons creek) but we dont have it that nice

sugaree said...

Jenna and Bodhi Elfman both were born in L.A., so there's a good chance that all their parents still live in the area. Jenna won a Golden Globe, and they are Scientologists, so they believe all that freaky "kids are just really short adults who can do anything a grown-up can do." In addition, they both appear to be really stupid.

wood1107 said...

I LOVE the Jenna and Bodhi Elfman guess! Great logic - I think we have a winner! Thanks, sugaree!

sugaree said...

Props must go to Trashtalker, who brought up her name.

EmilyR said...

__-__=__, me too. I love the Cox-Arquettes and will never think ill of them.

Sugaree, you might be on to something here. Debra Messing was my first guess, but Scients are very weird with kids (don't verbally comfort them when they cry, for one).

Sylvia said...

LOL@BrendaLove - I like your comment about blaming Affleck hahaha. Too funny lol. I don't like him either. He is such a wimp and badddd actor.

Sylvia said...

Well I went into IMDB to see if it would give some info on the new Love Boat. Didn't see anything.

Calla said...

Jenna Elfman's baby was born July 23, 2007, so he's not even three months old yet. Is that enough time for all this evidence to build up?

ashleybear said...

You never see debra messing...PERIOD. She's washed up now after will and grace and you always here what a bitch she is. People know that celebrities exist outside of pictures, give me an effing break.

Calla said...

How old is Debra Messing's baby? I'm too lazy to research it at the moment.

Also, could the "model parents" be a clue for her since she was a judge for Project Runway and she seems to always strive to be "model thin," is obviously really into fashion, etc.

Is there any way to apply the "oh yes it will return" to her as a clue?

Calla said...

Oh my god...I'd never seen this picture of Debra before...yuck.

hannah said...

Would anyone honestly consider Jenna Elfman "A List" though?? I think she's 'C List" at best. I think the Debra Messing guess seems the most plausible. Her son is around 3 now I think, so there is plenty of time for CPS to show up. People like this make me sick. I can't stand that babies are the new accessories for celebrities. I do wish that Ent was going to reveal the person to us...

What about Mariska Hargitay? She won an Emmy, and she has a son who is about 16 months old.

Calla said...

Here's an interesting blind item on Debra.

I know I'm getting off-track here, but I figure not too many people are reading this anymore since it's yesterday's blind. ;)

Nancy said...

how about jamie pressley from my name is earl. she was out alot ater the baby was born...

Nancy said...

sorry,i forgot the particulars of this blind. jamie is hardly a list and my name is earl isn't long running. please ignore.

Miss X said...

Jamie Pressley is a good guess, too. Except she's not A-list, is she? B at best.

I just can't believe it would be Melissa Joan Hart. Was she ever A-list?

It seems to point to Debra Messing.

wood1107 said...

Not to beat a dead horse, but I never stopped to think about the "A down to C-list" part of this blind. And yeah, Jenna Elfman's baby is still very young (you know, as opposed to those old babies). Now I'm on Team Messing, unless conviced otherwise.

trashtalker said...

I doubt it's Mariska. She's still on a popular show — and getting paid a lot of money for it. She's not on "the slow slide to B list."

Heche?

http://www.tmz.com/2007/10/10/britney-and-anne-heche-sharing-child-evaluators/

I hope this blind is revealed.

Grace said...

Anne Heche's husband won custody of the children.

However... there are only about five to six photos of Messing's son on Google Images, and all are promo pics with Messing in the photos.

With Hargitay, there are few more, but some seem spontaneous, as in, whoops, you caught me with the baby and stroller.

Any thoughts?

jpruitt said...

IMD mentions will and grace in the same sentance with love boat

jpruitt said...

or love boat could be a hint for the actress to have been on a ABC show

Kaiden said...

denise richards??
was she even on a tv show?

Calla said...

What is the definition of "promo pics" ... are all of these promo pics? Some could be spontaneous, I think (??)

Anon Y said...

When I first read this, I immediately thought of Brooke Shields. She was on a TV show (4 seasons of Suddenly, Susan) and is award-winning (if you count Peoples Choice Awards).

I'm prepared for the flogging... just thought I'd share my first instinct.

Katie said...

SJP - Sex and the city?

sugaree said...

This item strongly implies that the couple has only one child, and that the child is still young enough to be called a baby, and also that the actress is famous for her TV work. Brooke Shields has two kids and became famous for modeling/movies. Sarah Jessica Parker's son was born in 2002.

As far as Jenna Elfman goes, yeah, she's C-list, but when Dharma and Greg, Ed TV, and that movie with Richard Dreyfus came out, she was everywhere. She was supposed to be the next big thing, so I'd say she definitely got her taste of A-list. Her baby is young, but with the level of neglect charged here, it wouldn't take long for a horrified nanny, housekeeper, or p.a. called CPS. I mean, I'd call if I knew someone was
leaving their newborn alone in the house while they went out for dinner.
For this blind item to fit, we need to find a family where at least one of the grandparents is not dead (like Mariska H.'s parents), not estranged (like Brooke Shield's mother), and lives in the same area as the family. Anyone know the whereabouts of Debra Messing's or Daniel Zelman's parents? Or the family of Peter Hermann (Mr. Mariska)?

Virgo74 said...

Wow!!!! This one is awful!!!

All the pain to give birth to a baby, the choices that are out there to prevent pregnancy if you are not ready, and this ass leaves an innocent baby alone pissy wet to go and eat?????

How come charges have not been brought against the parents?

Debra Messing does fit the bill.

Mariska I am not too sure about.

staygold said...

debra messing. for sure. everything fits. a-list tv star for several years. emmy and sag award under her belt. slipping into b list oblivian. her husband is a nobody. love boat was an abc show, and messing started her career on an abc show called "prey." she has one baby. she lives in new york where she was born, so there's a possibility her parents live there also. all sounds right to me. i like the elfman guesses too, but messing takes it for me.
