Today's Blind Items

#1 This singer/fighter didn't let a date stand in the way of him hitting on any woman he saw at last night's CMA show. Did it in front of her, without her, and it all did no good. His bored looking date still went home with him at the end of the night.

#2 At a CMA after party, this award winning group had a drinking contest. Kind of boring huh? Maybe this fact will change your mind. When they were playing quarters, if someone got the quarter in the glass, the other members of the group had to do a line of coke. Kind of surprising considering they aren't the slimmest bunch of people.

Producer Blind Item

On his last film, this A list producer found parts for his drug dealer, his two girlfriends, and about five guys he owed money to. He made sure that as many of the extras as possible found the five guys attractive as well. The monetary incentive to find them attractive probably didn't hurt either. With all the time and money being spent on parties, drugs and extras, it is no wonder the movie went way over budget and bombed huge at the box office despite all the hype.

1) Kid Rock? He came with Gretchen Wilson, I thought.

2) Rascal Flatts? I can't see Sugarland being heavy in the stuff, but who knows.

Trix said...

Both my guesses, too, damn you beat me to it! RF has had rumors of shenanigans before.

1. Kid Rock
2. Rascal Fats
3. The producer of Evan Almighty

Moosefan said...

What about the Eagles, Brooks and Dunn, Montgomery Gentry, Big and Rich, Little Big Town...Was it a winner last night or did they already win?

donna said...

Ent, are you really calling kid rock a singer ... now, i like the rock .. but a singer he is not ..

no idea about the group .. but the eagles shouldnt be left out of contention ..

i was thinking the transformers producer ...

jindi said...

what a Nancy Reganism: John Belushi wasn't thin on coke, neither was drew barrymore when she was on blow or countless others (BRANDON DAVIS for pete's sake!).

Coke makes you thin if you don't drink like a fish while you're on it. Unfortunately cocaethelyne (new substance formed in the brain by coke + booze) is so much more powerful than coke alone that people tend to drink like fish when they're high (and even MORE when they're coming down since alcohol is a sedative).

coke alone = thin and sickly
coke and booze = normal or fat and sickly

sorry for the tangent.

DNfromMN said...

jindi, it was tangential, but it explains a lot. I wasn't aware of that! Thanks!

Dunno about #1, but agree w/ the Rascal Flatts for #2. They always pinged my gaydar, so I was hoping for a little man-o-man was gonna be in that one.

kimishoe said...

What about Rush Hour 3/Brett Ratner for #3? Isn't he supposed to be some bigtime slimey jerk? I don't recall the movie getting a lot of hype..I didn't even know it was in the making...But I did hear it bombed and was horrible.

Elizabeth said...

Jindi, I have to agree with the thin coke thing. Look at Chris Farley!

brendalove@gmail.com said...

I suppose there are people out there that only do coke occasionally. I just never heard of any.

Dijea said...

#1 Kid Rock
#2 My choice would be Big & Rich before Rascal Flatts, but that's just me.

#3 Joel Silver - the invasion bombed and he's definitely A-list. Total guess though.

Trix said...

Yup the big and coke thing= true.


Thats why John Goodman hasnt worked so much in the past few years: he couldnt get insured because he was on blow, and his drinking and physical stature was such that it was worrying people that he was going to have a heart attack...so he was doing cartoon voices and other voice work, stuff you dont need to be insured to do...now he's coming out of his secret rehab stint, saying it was for booze...yeah, booze...and COKE!

I knew those country singers weren't the goody two-shoes they try to come across as!

Sounds like a good after party to me.

Wait. Was that my outside voice?

Jolara said...

#1 is so obviously Kid Rock BUT he isn't "dating" Gretchen, they're just buds, so who cares if he was hitting on the other available women.
#2 I would hate to think it was Rascal Flatts, but I suppose a possiblity. The scary part is my (15 at the time) daughter was given an opportunity to tour with them for a week about a year ago. She is friends with their nephew. Thank goodness I said no!!! Anyways- But when it says "other members of the group, I don't think it's Big and Rich. I just hate to believe it could be Rascal Flatts. But the shoe seems to fit. :0(

b said...

why did i immediately think dixie chicks for #2 and no-one else did....

thought it would be most scandalous if it was them AND thught the weight comment was meant to be a convenient means of inserting a clue rather than a fact

Kristy said...

I like the Tarantino/Grindhouse guess for the director blind item, but Ratner seems a LOT more sleazy. I haven't seen either movie, but there would probably be more extras in Rush Hour 3 than in the Grindhouse films.

HautieTx said...

BI # 2

Ummm Dixie Chicks were there?

I am putting my bet on Rascal Flatts also. That lead singer seems to have an ongoing issue with having a "cold".

Barra said...

You are an idiot if you think #2 is the Dixie Chicks. Seriously.

thejuicyvee said...

I think #1 is keith urban. He is "fighting" addiction, and there was the picture earlier of him and nicole k and the caption mentioned her mastering the art of looking both interested and "bored" at the same time, or something along those lines...

jindi said...

note: ratner is a druggie, a sleaze and a fraud, but he is also a director and not a producer.

Sweater said...

You are an idiot if you think #2 is the Dixie Chicks. Seriously.

Um..why?
I could easily say you are an idiot if you think it's RF. They were there with their wives who hung with them all night at the after part(ies) there were at least 3 they attended.
They also were getting their pics taken all night because unlike your beloved DC, they actually won.

Eagles, maybe. Good to hear them back on the radio. Since the clue doesn't say if they won Wed night or have won in the past, it could be quite a few groups. Just because some people weren't nominated didn't mean they stayed home.

And yeah Kid Rock for 1. He's not dating Gretchen.
