Four For Friday - Quick And Dirty Edition

#1 - Know that show about teenagers in NY? Yes that one. Which one of the cuties on the show is going to be spending much of the time in between seasons in a little place we like to call rehab?

#2 - Famous author. Writes legal thrillers. Married. Having an affair with entertainment reporter who interviewed the author.

#3 - B list actress on hit network medical show. Holding out for a pay raise for next season even though on a contract. Reason? Owes too much money to her dealer. Will die if there is a strike by SAG.

#4 - This B list actor who has been on several HIT shows his cheating on his wife with a former co-star.

1) Wasn't this a blind not too long ago, and we decided it was Taylor Momsen because she was the only "tweener"?

2) James Patterson?

3) ER's not a hit anymore, right? So Maura Tierny (love her) isn't in consideration, right? enter ubiquitous Katherine Heigl guess. :)

4)umm. everyone?

1. Leighton
2. John Grisham
3. Katherine Heigl
4. too vague

Rachel said...

1. Gossip Girls--Blake?

2. John Grisham.

califblondy said...

John Grisham came to mind first for legal thriller author, but James Patterson is good too.

Emobacca said...

3- Jennifer Morrison of House. I saw her once on The Ashlee Simpson show and she was cracked out of her mind.

Ernestine said...

1. Blake is adorable. Not her. Please let it be that douchey Chace "With a C" Crawford.

2. I'm not a fan of his work, per se, but I just wanted to say that I've had some personal contact (not that kind!) with John Grisham through a former job, and I honestly don't think #2 is him. He's a genuinely, authentically nice guy with a relatively low-key life and a STUNNING wife who goes with him to basically every Charlottesville (that's where he lives) event. They seem close, and he doesn't seem like a cheater.

Who else writes legal thrillers? James Patterson? I read real books, sorry! :-)

3. I'm gonna go with Pompeo, because at least Heigl can SOMEhow get hired by movie directors. Why, I do not know.

4. No idea.

brum said...

James Patterson isnt a legal thriller author as such, more of a crime/detective one.

1. Someone from Gossip Girl
2. John Grisham came to mind straight away.
3. Thought Gray's but dont watch so dont know the names
4. No idea.

tracee said...

I thought Heigl was holding about re-signing. The tabs says cuz she thinks she can be a movies only actress, but she looks rough this season, but so did Ellen Pompeo.

#1-Someone from Gossip Girl, don't watch it.
#2-John Grisholm
#4-Matthew Fox

L00nyBin said...

don't believe #3 is Maura T b/c she's actually leaving ER by choice so no need to work on a contract.

I also agree w/ernestine when it comes to Heigl - she's just finished up being in two of top movies in the last few years and can get money elsehwere than from Grey's...saw Pompeo on a recent rerun of Punk'd and she seems like a royal bitch so let it be her...

as for an actor being on more than one hit tv show, i thought of stamos but he's not married anymore...so then it was duchovney for xfiles and now californication, but dont know whether that one counts...

here's a list of the current top shows...
http://www.tv.com/shows/topshows.html



now the Matthew Fox guess is great...

Amber said...

1 - Taylor Momsen

2 - John Grisham?

3 - Someone on Grey's.. don't watch it

4 - nooo idea

TomTyler said...

Chace Crawford for #1.

Pipistrella said...

1. Momsen
2. John Grisham
3. Katherine Heighl. She's a B list actress on a TV show.
4. Not a faintest idea

MrsRhododendronson said...

I've got to disagree on Grisham being a good guy -- he's an ass. Combine the worst stereotypical qualities of being a lawyer (sorry ENT) and being famous, and you've got Grisham.

Not that that makes him a cheater, necessarily, but I'd put money on it.

jax said...

Tracee wtf have you been?

1- Michelle Tratch
2- Grisham?
3- Ellen Pompeio
4- Fox with Neve Campbell? no clue.

beth said...

1. Not Taylor Momsen, she doesn't have a habit and is still pretty controlled by her parents. I think Ed Westwick is a good guess b/c in a recent interview he more or less admitted he was an alcoholic.

2. No idea.

3. It's not Katherine Heigl - she held out last year and actually wants off the show. Besides, she's pretty B+ list by now. I think ER would still count as a hit... but what about Olivia Wilde from House? Doubtful that it's someone whose been on a show a long time b/c they'd be making tons of money by now. Wilde would have signed a lower contract than she would get now that the House newbies are the focus of the show.

4. Matthew Fox lives in Hawaii to film lost -- seems unlikely one of his former co-stars also happens to live there. Who would that be anyway? Neve Campbell, Jennifer Love Hewitt and the actress who played his Kirsten were the only right-aged co-stars on that show... and it's definitely not the former two. Much more likely to be someone in LA who is around the scene.

Save the Assistants said...

I've heard rumors in the past about Matthew Fox and Julie Bowen, who played his character's wife in some 'Lost' flashbacks.

incognito said...

#3 It can't be Jennifer Morrison, she's barely on the show these days, it's not like she's going to get a pay raise for doing nothing.

Squealfox said...

#4 is Ted McGinley, cheating on his wife with Ed O'Neill

jw12 said...

Is Gloria Ruben still on ER?

ally said...

1. "Cutie" could either describe little J or Chase.

3. Jennifer Morrison she is so thin its amazing. On the show House even said that she probably isn't even menstruating anymore! Sad, bc that is one of my favorite shows.

4. The way I read it the actor might not even be on TV right now, so it is too vague for me.

lainiekazan said...

#2 -- Ent, is the author definitely a male, and/or are you sure his specialty is definitely law and not detective/espionage?

eileen said...

Yeah I was just going to say the wording of the blind sort of purposefully doesn't mention the author is a male which leads me to think it may be a female author.

littlemanwhatnow said...

When I seee HIT in caps, I think a mob show, like sopranos

Big Sur Expedition 2008! said...

#1 - I'm going with MT. She's always out and about. And she's in the Random Photos. I'd say Meester but she actually seems down to earth. I say this because she didn't kick Emily Rossum's ass with that whole Custome Gala snub. Bitch.

#2 - Grisham

#3 - will die is there is a strike...who is super skinny? or is that a threat from the dealer? Pompeo if its the former. That girl just needs to gain some freakin' weight already.

#4 - Hmmm Doogie? hee hee

Megan said...

what about dan brown?

april said...

Tracee! You're back! :-)

#1- Please let it be Chace Crawford!
#3 Ellen Pompeo suddenly looks like she's 50! Rough indeed!

april said...

AND Chace Crawford is in the Randoms!

april said...

..But so are Leighton Meester and Michelle Trachtenberg. Ok. One of those three.

Amber said...

I remember months back someone posted pictures they took of Momsen on their cellphone. They saw her on the subway in NY and she was supposedly wearing a super mini skirt, and was crossing and uncrossing her legs the whole time (yes, so people could see). lol I don't know whether I believe it or not, but you can't have control of your kids ALL the time.

selenakyle said...

OT--did anyone hear about Bill Murray separating from his wife, who accused him of being addicted to pot and booze?

Wonder if he would fit the "older actor/director growing weed mentoring younger actor cooking meth" Blind from this week...

surfer said...

Nice to see ya tracee! Miss your hilarious comments (beer boobies!).

#1 - obviously someone from GG, just not sure who. Too many to choose from.

#2 - Grisham.

#3 - Ellen Pompeo. As others mentioned, Heigl had her dispute last year and, she's healthy looking, which isn't usually the case when you have drug issues.

#4 - Love tracee's guess - Matthew Fox - I've heard stories before about him stepping out.

Mia said...

Matthew fox has been on 2 hit shows... since when does 2=several?

Other than Party of 5 and Lost he's only done a failed show (only 5 episodes) and movies.

As much as I like to watch him on screen, he does come across dickish in interviews, but he does not fit the blind clues. Sorry.

myxnmingle said...

#1 probably isn't Blake, Penn, Michelle or Ed. All have been photographed out and about recently, and I assume whomever it is would already be in rehab, since they are in between seasons now.

Ed said...

1. Chace Crawford

2. John Grisham

3. Someone from House?

4. Kyle McLaughlin (Desperate Housewives, Sex and The City)

gossip said...

The three medical shows (if we're assuming it's a tv drama and not a reality program with an actress as a host, etc) then network ones are:

1. House
2. Grey's Anatomy
3. E.R.
4. Scrubs

Since they said show I'm not ruling out Scrubs there either.

My actual guess would be either Sandra Oh on Grey's, Olivia Wilde (eh not really) or Jennifer Morrison from House. There's got to be a reason why her and Jesse split like they did so quickly after an engagement.

incognito said...

How could Jennifer Morrison ask for a pay raise for next season when she has one foot out the show? Is she a B list actress?

Kat. said...

#1. Michelle T from GG
#3. Jennifer Morrison, for sure.

Sweater said...

Grisham is too obvious, imo. Also, as has been said his wife is not only stunning, she's smart. Keeps him close last I heard.

You folks do know he's not the only legal thriller author, right? ;)

Scott Turow comes to mind, as does Tom Clancy, Brad Helzenger (pretty sure I spelled that wrong) and a guy topping lists at least once a year (last name something like Martini). Whenever I go on road trips I rent audio books, happen to prefer the legal thrillers (which is the only reason I know these names)

Re: question about male or female author, good point. Patricia Cornwell and Sue Grafton fit the bill as well.

for #1 I don't have any idea. I just really hope Michelle T is gone for good from that show. Agree it's most likely not Penn or Blake, since the only drug they seem to enjoy lately is one another. Whomever it is, I hope the rehab sticks.

yellow said...

From a caption on the random photos back in January 15, 2008.

"As bad as Ellen Pompeo looks I would say that marriage isn't agreeing with her. I wonder if she has any money left. ..."

I think we have a winner

emily said...

Don't think #3 is Pompeo. She's recently been looking a lot healthier, she's gained AT LEAST ten pounds in the last half of the season. I think the money issues were referring to the hubby.

#2 immediately thought JG. His name is synonymous with legal thrillers.

#4: Is Michel Vartan married? What about the guy from Dirty Sexy Money and Six Feet Under?

tracee said...

@Jax
Cured the work ebola with some heavy drinking and a good dose of gossip. Much better now.

Hi April! I've missed CDAN. :)

For #3 can I put this out there? I thought there were whispers her man was a drug dealer. Now, if that were halfway tru, wouldn't she get her drugs from him? And wouldn't he at LEAST give her a good discount? Just sayin.

Michelle said...

#1. I will say Chace Crawford, just because in the randoms he is deep throating a bottle. Not that that really means you have a drinking problem, but I needed a guess and don't watch that show.
#2.No clue. I read, but not a lot of legal thrillers.
#3. I will throw out a new one, just because. Chyler Leigh, not sure if she is B-list, but hey it's a guess.
#4. I immediatly thought of Kelsey Grammar for this one, all but one of his shows has been a huge hit.

Ernestine said...

Hey! I just remembered that blind Enty posted a few months back about the chick shooting up heroin in a club bathroom. I'd post to it, but I'm lazy and I know that most of you know exactly what I'm talking about. It was called something like "one jawdropping blind."

Anyway, I agree with Big Sur; I now absolutely believe that number one is Michelle Trachtenberg. She's got that Mischa Bartonesque drugged-up dead-eyed thing. Mmmm. Sexy.

I still maintain that number two is NOT Grisham, although I'm sure that having 34545 billion dollars has made him more of a choad than the average person.

Ummm. Totally Pompeo. I don't think it's Jennifer Morrison, although she does need to gain about ninety or so pounds.

How about Matthew Fox and that icky, high-pitched Lacey Chabert? Claudia grew up and bought herself some fake boobies!

Pipistrella said...

3. NOT Pompeo. I doubt she's short of money. Recently bought a guesthouse in LA. Plus like somebody has already mentioned she's been clearly gaining weight. People even speculated on her pregnancy a few weeks ago.

captivagrl said...

#4. mark harmon, SEVERAL hit shows: NCIS,Chicago Hope,The West Wing,St. Elsewhere, Moonlighting.......

vitriolic said...

#2 Tess Gerritson

Emobacca said...

Gossip, there relationship ended because Jesse Spencer is a closeted homosexual

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

#4: Is Michel Vartan married? What about the guy from Dirty Sexy Money and Six Feet Under?

Peter Krause isn't married.

Gossip, there relationship ended because Jesse Spencer is a closeted homosexual

Word.

rubicon said...

Michael Connolly for number two

gossip said...

Well that too emobacca, but couldn't it also cause Jennifer to lead down that path. Just saying..

HautieTx said...

#2

Doesn't Patricia Cornwell play for the home team? Plus I don't believe she is married.

But I do like the idea that this is a female author the BI is about...

#3

Is it possible that this is a actor on one of those annoying CSI shows?

#4

Love the guess of Mark Harmon. Maybe his "former co-star" is Kirstie Alley! hahahahaha!

Jamie's Girl said...

#3 is definitely one of those 3 chics from House. Anybody whose name is recognizable like the name Pompeo, Tierney or Heigl, is not B List. Heigl is Mormon, and most likely not doing drugs.

Jamie's Girl said...

Pompeo's husband was a drug dealer. That came out with the national enquirer. I still don't think it is her though.

SUE said...

The legal thriller author is STEVE Martini. But in rereading the careful way #2 is worded, I agree we're talking about girl on girl.

incognito said...

Olivia Wilde has just landed a role in House, no way she's going to get a pay raise.

Jennifer Morrison is barely on House, no way she's holding out for a pay raise for next season, producers would rather let her go.

So it can't be any chic from House.

Chris said...

1. Michelle T
2. ? Lisa Scottoline (sp?) writes legal thrillers
3. ??
4. I like the Matthew Fox guess

Mia said...

Once again, can someone name the SEVERAL HIT SHOWS Matthew Fox has been on?

I hate it when people don't read the blind.

gossip said...

Matthew Fox was on Party of Five and Lost - he was on some other shows but they're the ones that have lasted a particular amount of time.

Mia said...

Party of 5 & lost = 2 shows

2 does not equal several.

I thought it was him as well, so I checked imdb and he's only been in 2 HIT shows, so it has to be in someone else, as the blind says "several HIT shows"

for reference: several
adjective
1. (used with count nouns) of an indefinite number more than 2 or 3 but not many; "several letters came in the mail"; "several people were injured in the accident"

I bet it's someone like Jack Wagner and Heather Locklear

CarolMR said...

I hope #3 isn't Lisa Edelstein.

jw12 said...

I don't know if he's considered B but what about Dave Boreanaz for 4.

Angel
Buffy
Bones

incognito said...

Lisa Edelstein is the only one actress on House who could ask for a pay raise.

schneefloeckli said...

#1 Taylor Momsen
She is stick-thin. Her arms are scary and she had to cut her hair because it was looking disasterous. i thought it's "just" anorexia but it could also be drugs.

#2 Patricia Cornwell is gay, yes. I have no idea who it could be though. Grisham seems too obvious.

#3 Ellen Pompeo is the star of Grey's. The show has been on for four years which makes her definitely A-list.

#4 No clue. Could be anyone really.

gossip said...

True that Lisa E is the only one who could ask for a pay raise, but has she really changed that much in a year? She seems the same ol' self to me.

Plus I just realised something.. the BI for #3 says they're holding out for next season, etc.. now House and ER are already onto filming their next seasons..
