Today's Blind Items

#1 This aging B list actress on a hit again network drama has been drowning her recent sorrows in booze. Seems that she is getting her liquor delivered at a rate of about 3 liters of vodka a day. None of that good stuff for her either. Despite a very large salary, the actress is spending $50 a day on the liquor including delivery.

#2 Three people walking down a sidewalk. #1 is about ten steps in front of #2 and #3 is about one step behind #2. Now it seems as if #1 reached into his pocket to get his cell phone and as he did, he dislodged two $100 bills. Person #2 is an A list television actor on a hit medical drama. #2 reached down, picked up the $200 and put it in his pocket. #3 saw what he was doing and asked #2 if he was going to give the money back to #1. From the look on his face, it was obvious that our actor was going to keep the money. As #3 raised a fuss, our actor gave the money to #3 and walked away quickly. #3 then caught up to a very grateful #1 and returned the money without mentioning our actor.

1.) Teri Hatcher
2.) Patrick Dempsey for #2
Ent for #3

tania said...

I'm not sure about #1. Ent says she's on a 'hit again network drama'. Sounds like a show that had a dip in ratings and came back up. Unless he meant the actress is on a hit again, and the wording came out odd? In which case, yeah, I'd go for Hatcher.

#2 I'm beginning to get the distinct impression that Dempsey is a tool, so I vote for him!

wood1107 said...

Wow. Patrick Dempsey - petty thief? I've got nothing else for that one.

Maybe Teri Hatcher for #2.

wood1107 said...

Oops. I meant #1 = Teri Hatcher.

1. OMG, what that swill must be doing to that poor woman's skin, not to mention her insides. "Recent sorrows" sounds like we should know about the specific issue. Can't think what show it could be, though.

#2 -- I can't believe Hugh Laurie would do something that low (don't know why, just a vibe) but I also first thought of Dempsey (again, just the vibe.)

jax said...

John Stamos? Not Dempsey..he's not hat kind of guy sorry.

Cali Girl said...

#2 - Agree with ice angel and tania. Am totally getting the impression that McDreamy is a McTool. And with the recent kindness reveal about McSteamy, could imagine him being #3 and putting up a fuss about McTool pocketing the cash.

Erika said...

Actually, Lainiekazan, your pointing out of "recent sorrows" makes sense with the guess of Teri Hatcher. Didn't she just break up with that guy that Eva Longoria & hubby introduced her to?

Bebedog said...

Why does everyone think Patrick Dempsey is such a cad? Am I missing something here? Every time there is a blind about someone being a jerk or rude, he is mentioned. I don't get that vibe from him. I think he just doesn't play the whole hollywood kiss a$$ game like everyone else does. What am I missing about him that you all know?

Fabiola Thing said...

bebedog--It's come out recently that Dempsey is not the nice guy we all thought he was.

budford said...

Locklear for #1? She looks boozy.

GammaGirl said...

1. SCREAMS Teri Hatcher!She has a lot to be bummed out about lately.

2. I'm going with Dempsey too, Its very apparent that he's an ass in real life, but who was with him?

Majik said...

#1--Dunno who it is, but she's taking lessons from the Duff McKagan Exploding Pancreas School of Boozerie, that's fo' sho'.

#2--Is Scrubs still on? Is it still a hit? I really don't know (never watched) but isn't Zack Braff notoriously cheap and cowardly (...and creepy and dirty and ...)

If nobody talked about the actor in #2, then how'd you get it?

white lorelei said...

Candice Bergen for #1? But I don't know what recent sorrows there would be.

How can anyone guess the second one (which should have earned a "jackass" title, btw)? Is there a clue in the blind that I'm missing?

There's gotta be more to it than that ....

Tracee said...

White Lorelei, I thought Candace too! I get the booze hound feel from her.

#2 - only has clue for #2. why does nobody think it's that guy from House? Didn't he win an Emmy? My money's on him...have no clue about the others involved.

Tracee said...

Sorry laniekazan I didn't read the comments, you guessed Hugh too! Right on.

It doesn't say nobody talked about actor #2, it says it wasn't told to actor #1.

#3 then caught up to a very grateful #1 and returned the money without mentioning our actor. **********************************

with that said:

What an ass actor #2 is.

Esther said...

I vote Teri Hatcher as for the "on a hit again" network drama, could be in reference to Lois and Clark and then being on another hit show Desperate Housewives now.

As for the lame gazillionaire pocekting the $200, I vote Dempsy. What a lame.

Kim said...

If I am reading this correctly, only #2 is an actor?

K said...

I can more imagine Hugh Laurie being #3 in this scenario... and I hate to say it, McDreamy being #2

trashtalker said...

"hit again network drama" -- could that be CSI? It just clobbered Grey's. Last season, Grey's was kicking ass. So... Marg Helgenberger? (I hope not.) Or Jorja Fox? Describing her as "aging" might be pushing it, but she IS leaving the show, hence possible sorrows.

Angela said...

"A list television actor on a hit medical drama" means that either the actor has starred in networkd shows for more than three years (if it's the same show, it means it's in its fourth season) or has been a co-star for more than five years.

For example, Steve Carell is now A list, while Jenna Fischer would be a B lister.

"House" and "Grey's Anatomy" are both in their fourth season, which means it can only be the lead male actors for each.

kelsey said...

re: braff for person #2.. as creepy as I think he is, ent describes the show as a drama, not quite scrubs, don't you think? are we missing any "hit medical dramas" other than grey's and house? hmf, I don't even know if I'd consider dempsey a-list. sadly, I'm thinking hugh laurie for this one too.

mngddess said...

Everything I have read about Hugh Laurie relates that he is a pretty decent guy. He also works 14 hr days and, according to him, has no time to do anything else but eat dinner and learn his lines for the next day.

Really haven't read anything nice about Patrick Dempsey...

As for #1 - have you seen Teri Hatcher's face lately? Look at the photo posted yesterday. She looks pretty haggard...

Eternal said...

What about Maura Tierney for #1? She's definitely aging, ER is supposedly a hit again since John Stamos is on it, and her recent sorrows could be either her divorce from her gay husband or her married boyfriend Goran Visnjic's 2 new children (one adopted by his wife, one from a paternity suit). I could see her being a big drinker.

Customer said...

For #1, I think "hit again network" maybe means NBC. Remember when NBC was the lowest in the ratings for the first half of this decade. Now it has Heroes, the Office and Bionic Woman. What do you think?

captivagrl said...

#1 kim dalaney? army wives on lifetime is a hit, i don't know about recent sorrows though...?

pusssykatt said...

Kim Delaney lost custody of her children due to her drinking...and driving with them in the car.

JAlsup said...

I thought Sally Field for #1, but maybe she would be considered A list. I get a lush vibe from her, though. Especially in those Boniva commercials. She looked pretty shaky in one of the shots where she was cutting up vegetables. Ha.

kellysirkus said...

I'm with Budford on #1 - Heather locklear seems like a Cosmo girl to me.

Nosey Parker said...

The AGC Blind Items Page says the answer is Kim Delaney.

I didn't know she was on a show called Army Wives. I'm surprised that anyone would hire her. She should feel grateful to get a chance to rebuild her career. By the time she hits rock bottom and tries to get better the career opportunities will be long gone.

Dschingis said...

kim,

i too read it that only nr.2 is an actor. And they all did not know each other.

also i think that A list television actor on a hit medical drama, can be interpreted different than Angela suggested. I can be a recognized A list tv actor, but i can join the hit medical drama for the new season. that would be also a valid definition.

my guess is that its someone of the
Nip Tuck cast.

I am going for Kim Delaney.

The second blind item I have no clue. House and Greys are the only two drama medical shows (well, maybe ER) that I know of.

Calla said...

Is there any justification for thinking John Stamos would be a jerk? My brother in law met him and Rebecca Romijn and spent a fair bit of time with them (several hours, on a flight) & interacted w/them a lot and said they couldn't have been nicer.

SF said...

For #1, the actress must not be the typical skinny and slight female celebrity, because 3 liters would be a tremendous amount of alcohol to consume daily and still be functioning at all. I have a petite friend who used to drink a fifth of vodka a day and she was in really bad shape! Who told you how much she was buying and paying, Ent., the delivery man?! Get the girl some help!

Bebedog said...

Can anyone point me in the right direction here on Patrick Dempsey? Fabiola thing said that it came out that he wansn't as nice as we all thought, but what happened or what article talked about him? I just can't see him being so cocky and rude when he knows he is truly lucky to have had his second chance at success after the small amount of fame he had in his early career. Point me in the right direction here people! Thanks

Melissa said...

#1 totally locklear!
