Today's Blind Items

This Oscar nominated actress and her new love interest, a B list actor on a hit network drama have been spending lots and lots of time together primarily at her place or a love nest he has in Venice Beach. Wanting to spend some serious time together they have been doing so outside the US. This doesn't sound like anything all that blind item worthy until you know that the actor is allegedly a happily married guy who plays that up whenever he gets the chance.

Interesting that Patrick Dempsey showed up in the photos as being in Paris. He would fit the B-list actor, but not sure on who the Oscar nominee would be?

K said...

erm, am I totally off kilter here, but has anyone seen Halle's baby daddy since the pregnancy was announced? I know, I know she won, so she was nominated, right?

Someone beat me down on this, please.

Or: Penelope, Charlize?

Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey? They spent a whole lot of time together filming that new Disney movie...

Jennifer said...

patrick Dempsey - i love the clues on the site. Thank you. Now answer lainey's butthole guy

Laura said...

OT - I can't understand how the same people get nominated year after year after year. Are they really that good each and every time, or is it only a "name" thing?

trashtalker said...

Ent's definition of an A list TV star is "someone who has had their own show or been the star of a television show for more than 5 years combined or 3 years on one show." I think that means that Patrick Dempsey would have to be referred to as A list, not B list. Right?

Brenda22 said...

I think it's Patrick. Why else would ENT say "speaking of crap"...he's known as a big family guy, I'd say he's B list, and he's in Paris (ie, outside of the Country). He also has a new movie coming out with Amy Adams (Oscar-nominated) actress. All the clues fit.

Twisted Sister said...

Laura, I think the studio's campaign every year and they do have their favorites. You KNOW that Harvey Weinstein LOVES Gwyneth Paltrow, for example. (Or something like that...)

Trashtalker, I wonder if EL doesn't consider him the star of the show? I know it's an ensemble show, so maybe he rates that differently?

JustinD said...

The "speaking of crap" comment was posted before the BI, it would have been more convincing if it was in tomorrow's picture roundup.

Esther said...

Didn't it come out that Patrick Dempsey is getting a divorce? If those reports were true, then the happily married part doesn't fit.

Trix said...

Im nominating Josh Holloway for the B list actor. He's super hot, but married, and will trot that out as a kind of "reminder" at times...yet it seems as if he's almost regretful that he was married once he hit it big with the show...

Elizabeth said...

I'll be so pissed if it's Hugh Laurie.

kellysirkus said...

how about instead of McDreamy, it's McSteamy.
He's married to Rebecca Gayheart, and the last photo of them she was grabbin ghis crotch, and he looked not so thrilled with it. They got married on their second date or something crazy like that, so he might be having 2nd thoughts. (plus, she's a bit of a crazy ano, and killed some kid with a car)

McDreamy just had twins, so that would be pretty low if he's steppin' out. BUT his wife does SEEM like a major b!tch.

trashtalker said...

I thought of Eric Dane, too, but he was just a Kindness here not too long ago (the guy with the phone troubles), so I'm hoping it's not him.

trashtalker said...

Just throwin' a few more names out there, in case it's not Patrick, although he definitely "plays up" the image of happy husband/father. Most of these actors seem like decent guys, so no offense to the innocent!

Adrian Pasdar (Heroes)
James Denton (Desperate Housewives)
Doug Savant (DH)
Kyle MacLachlan (DH)
Eric Close (Without a Trace)
David Boreanaz (Bones)*
Christopher Gorham (Ugly Betty)
Justin Chambers (Grey's Anatomy)
Rob Morrow (Numbers)*
Kyle Chandler (FNL)*

*would these shows be called "hits"?

trashtalker said...

Dang. I forgot Taye Diggs and Tim Daly of Private Practice, assuming that's a hit show.

Miss X said...

Definitely Patrick Dempsey.

Today's random photos sealed this one for me.

Dempsey could get killed off GA and the show probably wouldn't die. They got rid of Isaiah. My point is, Dempsey isn't the lead...it's def an ensemble show.

kellysirkus said...

NO NO NO!!!
not Kyle Chandler or Tim Daly!!!

I absolutely LOVE them both!

I could see Taye Diggs though. An old Blind about a actor married to a "singer" was lunching with a g/f date and ducked out when people noticed them. Everyone guessed him. But IDT you can call PP a hit just yet. Even though it def has potential.

Sweater said...

Don't think it's Dane..that would be a little too tempting (if you ask me) to mention his wife's history.

And whomever spoke of Gayheart as if she killed that little boy on purpose..I can't imagine what she has to live with.
Honestly.

Shame on you.

It's one thing to not like a pretty and thin beautiful actreess, but from every single thing I read about it it was an accident that resulted on her bad judgement and him running into a busy street.
He's not at fault, don't get me wrong, but perhaps she also should not be burned at the stake.

Twisted Sister said...

KELLY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Count me in on the Tim Daly love. Have you ever seen "The Outsider"?

HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mia said...

reading through that list- those were some great roles for women.

WhiteOprah said...

I was friends with Patrick Dempsey's live-in girlfriend of 3 years when she came home one day and found him in bed with his hairdresser (his current wife). This was back when he was desperate & couldn't even get arrested in this town. Imagine what he's like now that he's on a hit show....

Kim said...

I'm disappointed. Not one of you guys said Chris Meloni. Isn't he the automatic go-to when "guy" "married" and "hit network drama" are all in the same sentence?

Not that I think it's him, but I kept scrolling on down expecting to see him as a guess. ;)

schneefloeckli said...

FNL, Numb3rs and Private Practice are definitely not hit shows. Private Practice is on its 5th episode, so you can't really tell. Plus the critics are really bad.

Numb3rs is a good show but def. not a hit show, smae goes for Bones, I guess.

And Friday Night Lights' fans are afraid it may be cancelled this year because the ratings seem to be pretty poor.

I'm all for Dempsey on this one because he was featured in today's photos. He's sort of the male lead of Grey's Anatomy though... *shrugs*

ehinckle02 said...

I totally agree with you Sweater.. well said:)

lifeintheburghlane said...

sweater & ehinckle not to be rude but you are idiots. the car in front of gayheart stop and waved the 8 yr old boy to cross the street. gayheart, in a hurry to get to the tanning/hair salon, went around the car and KILLED the boy. "f" her!!! i feel deeply for his family!!!

Twisted Sister said...

Sweater, this is not the first time you've chastised someone for being a bad person and talking about celebs. This is a fucking gossip site, dear. If you're above gossip, maybe this isn't a good place for you.

And seriously, the account I read has her passing stopped cars and driving WAY too fast. She was reckless. Don't make her out to be an innocent victim of circumstances because that's bullshit.

Christine said...

I'm with Sweater on this one. She's not a murderer...it was a terrible accident. Whether she was inattentive to the road at that moment or not, she will have to carry that on her conscience forever.

Twisted Sister said...

Christine, where does Kelly say she was a murderer? She wrote, "(plus, she's a bit of a crazy ano, and killed some kid with a car)".

Please don't put words in her mouth.

Twisted Sister said...

And making a deliberate decision to 1) speed and 2) go around stopped cars is not being inattentive, it's being reckless.

trashtalker said...

I didn't mention Chris Meloni OR Matthew Fox because I'd say they're both A list by Ent's definition. (I know Lost is an ensemble, but surely Matthew is one of the main stars.)

Don't get me wrong: I'm feeling Patrick for this one. He cheated on his first wife, too. I just figured he'd have been labeled as A list. A lot of people thought that the 10/2 blind about the "A list TV actor on a hit medical drama" stealing $100 bills off the street was him.

sarah said...

Dempsey and Adams. How many more clues does anyone need? His wife just had twins, too, so he's headed to a special place in hell...

kellysirkus said...

ENT - give us some hot photos of Tim Daly and Kyle Chandler STAT. I can think of nothing else now!

Twisted - thanks, sister!

Patrick Dempsey assfucking Tom Cruise
