Today's Blind Items

#1 - This B/C list television actress who was one of the stars of a very long running hit show is on a new show now. She has made it very clear to producers that she is willing to do anything to stay on the show longer and is already dropping hints about how she is going to make sure she is the main focus of the show.

Another of my this is gold in another country items comes from Korea.

#2 - This 20 something actress who became famous for something before turning to acting has been in films and television shows, but she is about to become more known for her affair with the head of a major company in Korea. Seems the guy filmed one of their sessions and our guy's wife has a copy of the tape. Apparently the wife screened it for a few of her friends.

#1 for some reason Courtney Cox popped into my head

kellysirkus said...

oh, wait! I just had a better thought: Sarah Chalke wants to be the "Mother" on "How I Met Your Mother"

deity2 said...

#1- Maybe Kaley Cuoco (sp?) on Big Bang Theory, or Michelle Trachtenberg on G.G.

#2---no idea

lyz said...

I think the Sarah Chalke guess is right on!

SkittleKitty said...

She doesn't seem like she would be this way, but the first person who popped into my head was Kelly Rutherford (Melrose, now Gossip Girl).

Chatty said...

I like the Michelle Trachtenberg guess, but was she one of the "stars" on Buffy?

captivagrl said...

sarah chalke, and she was on 2 very long hit shows.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

I thought of Sarah Chalke instantly. Scrubs is most likely over next season (season 8), and they should have the filming wrapped by end of summer which totally frees her up for HIMYM in the fall (if it's not canceled).

Julia said...

Wouldn't the clue say "2 long-running hit shows" if it was Sarah Chalke?

sooperserial said...

I thought of Patricia Heaton instantly for #1. She seems like the type. She was on Raymond for years and now she's on that Fox show about Pittsburgh newscasters.

juju said...

patricia heaton for 1'

HthrHllywd said...

I agree with Julia.

I like the Michelle Trachtenberg guess because I understood her part coming in to GG to be temporary, and wanting to "stay longer" supports her in that respect.

She's also supposed to be the antagonist, just fresh out of rehab and blah blah so wouldn't it make sense for her to be a main focus if she's a big shit stirrer?

Eddie said...

I'm gonna change gears and say Julia Louis-Drefuss

CarolMR said...

I'm not sure about Patricia Heaton. She is one of the two stars of her new show, so she doesn't have to worry about staying on the show longer. And I think she is more A/B rather than B/C.

IndigoBlue said...

Juli Louis-Dreyfuss (sp?) is the star of her own show..she's Old Christine in "The New Adventures of Old Christine" and she's hilarious, btw

Unfortunately, I don't have a guess of my own right now. Brain dead today.

HthrHllywd said...

As for the 20 something Korean actress, Yoon Eun Hye got famous for being in a girl group called Baby VOX before she began acting. She replaced one of the other members of the group who had left because of a big scandal, and she was only fifteen, then she left the group four albums later after some crazy fan shot her in the eye with a squirt gun filled with soy sauce and vinegar haha...then she moved on to acting in popular sitcoms and movies.

Just a guess though as I'm in Colorado not Korea haha.

good one Kelly, i was thinking the same thing. if anyone watrches the show a lot they know that last week they dropped A LOT of hints that this was in fact the 'mother'and even in the week b4's episode about the St. Pats party.

i hope so, she was great opposite Ted.

takeme2espana said...

I thought of Julia-Louis Dreyfuss too, then remembered she is an heiress. She hardly needs to beg/hope for anything. If she wanted the show to keep on, she could afford to produce the show herself-

jax said...

indigo she came to mind as well but i dont think she'd have to do much to stay on her own show.
thinking its a guest spot to start..

junglekitten said...

#1 has to be Michelle Trachtenberg on Gossip Girl!! Y/Y???

J said...

I don't see myself as innocent at all but why is the first item supposed to be secret? Is it tawdry?

Twisted Sister said...

Takeme, I don't think her being richer than God has anything to do with her wanting to work, but I don't think it's her simply because I don't think she has the ego demanding the attention be on her.

IndigoBlue said...

Jax, I was responding to Eddie's guess of Julia...I was trying to say she wouldn't need to demand attention on her own show b/c she's already the star. I guess I wasn't very clear! lol ;)

Brenda22 said...

Lindsey Price?

She was on 90210 and now on Lipstick Jungle.

Laviolett said...

I hope it is Sarah Chalke. And as far as Old Christine--I LOOOOOVE that show.

kellysirkus said...

how funny would it be if they carried out the Ted/Sarah story by Britney's character becoming some crazy stalker. They wouldn't even have to ever show her, but she could be stalking Ted and it forces him to stay in touch with Sarah Chalke. Then they could have the stalker rushed off to Cedars in an ambulance in the middle of the night.

Ice Angel said...

I'm thinking the word "focus" is a clue, so I am thinking of a show that has to do with cameras, where I came up with Just Shoot Me.

Laura San Giocomo was one of the stars and is now on Saving Grace.

She played a hooker in Pretty Woman, so maybe not too much of a stretch?

Ice Angel said...

Sarah Chalke is a good guess, but because she was on Scrubs, not Roseanne. She was only on Roseanne for about a minute, so I really don't think Ent would be referenceing that show.

Anyway...I'm sticking with Laura as my guess...

jax said...

oops sorry indigo!

story said...

I think #1 is Kristin Bell. Veronica Mars had a good following. I can definitely see her wanting to stay on Heroes. It is a great show.

Gayla said...

"I don't see myself as innocent at all but why is the first item supposed to be secret? Is it tawdry?"

j, I might be reading too much into it but the line about "willing to do anything to stay on the show longer" implies that, well, she's willing to do ANYTHING. That could mean a lot of things.

The Baby VOX guess for #2 is interesting, b/c there was another blind item some time ago about guy in a rock band who impregnated a girl in an overseas girl group. I think it was heavily guessed and/or confirmed that the pregnant girl was the first one who left Baby VOX.

I don't know the first thing about Baby VOX but it would make sense that the group be tied to both these blinds because of the continuity - Ent being directly or indirectly connected to the group somehow, so he would have multiple blinds about them. It just seems to fit.

Majik said...

Def Michelle Trachenberg or howeryouspellerlassname...the last couple of seasons of Buffy were devoted to Dawn being "the Key" and the various results therein, she's definitely B/C list (anyone see those Ice skating movies she made? Anyone?), and I've seen her interviews--she thinks she's da shit, and she's ambitious.

I don't think Sarah Chalke qualifies as B/C because of both Roseanne and Scrubs--I'd go solid B, with the hit show.

RagDoll said...

#1 could be any actress...and what she says she'll do isn't mentioned, so it could be something as ho-hum as accepting scale pay

As much as I whine about the A/B/C/D list thing....I woulda loved it if Ent. said where on the list #2 falls, because without that "qualifier" #2 could could be anyone. I mean, heck, #2 could even be Paris Hilton, who was "famous for something" (a porn)and she's been in films and TV shows.

captivagrl said...

ice angel - sarah was on roseanne 5 years. she's credited with 69 episodes.

Hotseat said...

#1 dana delaney from china beach/now desperate housewives

frou frou said...

uh yeah, no. sarah chalke was not on roseanne for that long. that was the other becky, the FIRST becky.

pusssykatt said...

What about Alyssa Milano and "What About Earl?" I don't watch the show, but saw a commercial that she's going to be on.

farygica said...

Actually, frou frou, captivagrl is correct. Check your facts before you scold. IMDB credits Chalke with some 69 shows and 5 years. The original Becky is credited with 146 shows.

childeroland said...

#2 - Shi Qu? She was a soft core porn star before going mainstream.

childeroland said...

I mean Shu Qi

Pimmy said...

It's unclear to me if with "on a new show now" Ent means the show is new, or it is new for the actress (as in this season), or is simply new as in not the old show.

Like the Alyssa Milano and Trachtenberg guesses, but it also could be Alyson Hannigan on How I Met Your Mother if Ent doesn't mean a literally new show or new this season for the actress... her role's steadily increasing.

Garden Keeper said...

For number 1: "Very long running hit show", key word being "very". A new show. A "B/C actress". And the answers are:

"Law and Order"
"Women's Murder Club"
"Angie Harmon"

::: bows slightly and exits :::

redgurl72 said...

Not buying the Angie Harmon guess.
She is the star of that show. Sounds more like someone who is doing a guest spot and wants to stay around.

AM said...

Hi everyone,

1)Jane Krakowski
2)?

murr said...

I'm going to go ahead and toss in another name for #2. I'm guessing Eugene, because she was really really famous for being in the girl group, S.E.S. before she turned to acting. She seems like a really passionate person, so I can imagine her getting caught in something she didn't mean to be caught in.

jafan2008 said...

#1 Calista Flockhart?

Visman said...

Clooney for both 1 and 2.


Geez Ent, these aren't even challenging anymore.

yellow said...

Actually Angie Harmon makes a lot of sense:
-the show was already canceled for good, than brought back for a couple of episodes this season but is not confirmed for next season.
- News also say that the new episodes are being retooled to be more Angie centered.

Angie it is.

CarolMR said...

I think the "Women's Murder Club" is already centered on Angie Harmon. I don't think it could be any more Angie-centric. Just my opinion, though.

unicorn jones said...

I like the michelle trachenberg guess for #1. but wasn't she the main guess for the girl who's new secret bf got her shooting up in the bathroom?

on a side note,
jc's response that the gay rumors w/ chace crawford are laughable, is laughable

you aint foolin nobody mista gay-cee

#1 Michelle Trachtenberg on Gossip Girls

Mike said...

farygica, the IMDB is incorrect if it states Sarah Chalke appeared on 5 seasons of Roseanne. The original Becky left the series early in Season 5, and Chalke did not appear as Becky until the 9th episode of the 6th season. The original returned for most of Season 8, but Chalke did make a few appearances (a couple of which were gags), and then played the role full time for the 9th and final season.

So it's more accurate to say she played the role for "most of 3 later seasons, with occasional appearances in a fourth." She was never a star on that show, though
