Four For Friday

#1 & 2- So this C list television actress with A list name recognition was supposed to star in an old family standby. Everyone was excited to have her on board and thought everything was great. Then at the filming of the promos for the show, our actress was a no-show. Apparently she was too tired to come in and film, but would try and come in a few days or perhaps they could just film out at her place. Whatever was more convenient for her. The producers, instead of putting up with crap and creating some kind of diva monster, cut her loose from the project right then and brought in an old nemesis instead who has been a perfect angel.

#3 - What former NY Yankees pitcher and still in the major leagues had an affair with a teammate's wife, and then later with that same teammate's girlfriend. (This has nothing to do in any way, shape, or form with Alex Rodriguez except who knows, maybe he slept with them both as well. I don't know.)

#4 - Apparently random acts of vandalism against her ex's stuff is the way this B- television and C list film actress is getting her revenge on the guy she dumped, but says she didn't. No, not Megan Fox. Think meaner and older. Not that old.

#1 Tori Spelling
#2 Shannen Doherty

in the new 90210

Sinead said...

#4 Rose McGowan.

SFG said...

#3 Roger Clemens??

CarolMR said...

"Perfect angel"? Something to do with CHARLIE'S ANGELS?

icywench said...

#3 - Clemens popped into my head immediately. Just another reason to hate the Yankees.

Marcy said...

Roger Clemens is NOT in the major leagues anymore.

Mooshki said...

#1 & 2: Tori Spelling & Shannen Doherty (who seems to have really grown up a lot!)

#3: I'm sure A-Rod did sleep with both of them.

Mooshki said...

Sinead - great guess for #4.

Ernestine said...

Yup. I totally agree with Tori and Shannen for #1. Is it wrong that I sort of want to watch the new 90210? But only because they're bringing back NAT and the PEACH PIT!

2). I hate all (male) professional athletes. I'm sorry, but I'm still roiling over the Michael Vick thing. Virginia Tech can suck a choad. Well, okay, I don't hate Laird Hamilton, most tennis players (and they're usually hot, so, hey, bonus!), the Barber brothers and the 3 or 4 others who aren't troglodytish, cheating, drug-taking, date-raping, murderous douchebags. So I don't give a shit about this one, because it simply doesn't surprise me.

3) That horrid cow Rose McGowan.

Ernestine said...

P.S. I'm sorry for my vehemence about #3, but I really am tired of dumbass men getting away with all sorts of immoral behavior simply because they can kick or throw an object better than the average person. Virginia Tech did nothing to curb the awful behavior of the Vick boys while they *cough, cough* "attended" their school, and look how they each turned out?

Okay. Just wanted to clarify in case some of you are, like, professional baseball players or are married to one or some shit. I don't hate ALL athletes. Just a lot of them.

Back to guessing, people!

A Pimp Named DaveR said...

#2 -- I think it's Randy Johnson. And this may be the reason why he and Jorge Posada hated each other....

I have no evidence to support this, though. Just a hunch.

Stephen said...

#3 - How about Andy Pettite? Maybe he slept with Debbie Clemens and Mindy McCready.

captivagrl said...

#4. nicollette sheridan

Keeper said...

Not Pettite. He's still a Yankee pitcher. I was thinking about Randy Johnson too.

selenakyle said...

Nasty--who would sleep with Ichabod Crane?

Denis said...

I don't know the answer to #3, but Randy Johnson? Seriously--who would sleep with that? Ewwww!

kris said...

love the tori/shannon guess..

Rose for 4????...OK...I'll go with it..

#3 - not a baseball fan - sorry...

Willow said...

1. & 2. Totally Tori and Shannen. I almost choked to death laughing when I heard Tori and Dean are promoting themselves as a "Hollywood Power Couple." Ya huh .. sure.

3. Luis Vizcaino .. but I am kinda pulling that outta my butt. I know he is married .. but like that ever stopped anyone from screwing around!

4. Rose McGowan .. hell hath no fury like a pissed off Irishwoman with a broken heart .. self broken or not. Trust ...

littlemanwhatnow said...

rose is a horrible bitch....

maybe emily blunt?

*Miss_P* said...

Tina Fey? 'meaner' = Mean Girls?

*Miss_P* said...

oops - that was for #4

life is but a dream said...

I don't think 1 & 2 are Tori and Shannen. Firstly, because Tori was the only friend Shannen had on the set (Jennie Garth and Shannen were the biggest enemies). Secondly, Tori wasn't set to "star" in the new show... just guest.

shiny_special_one said...

Ooo, I really like the Rose McGowan guess for #4.

#1 & 2: I was totally on board with the Tori Spelling and Shannen Doherty guess...and then saw life is but a dream's post. Now I have no idea.

#3: What Ernestine said. In both posts.

BlahFrickinBlah said...

Yeah but didn't they make a big deal out of Tori coming back and then all of the sudden she was not available until later in the season?

No clue on the baseball.

Rose sounds like a good guess for 4

equinox said...

I'm not sure about Tori either. Only because (hides face in shame) I watch her reality show and it seems like her & Dean will do anything for a paycheck. Not in a bad way, just that she is kinda hard working.

RagDoll said...

#3 Pimp ND!! YES! I thought the exact same thing!


#1&2: Tori & Shannen.



#4 It's Lohan-ish behavior, but who is the guy? And who has she ever said "he broke up with me" about?

Moonmaid said...

LOL - Randy Johnson IS Ichabod Crane. But seriously would any woman ever sleep with him? That guy is creepy looking.

redgurl72 said...

#1 My first thought was Shannen and Alysa Milano, her nemisis from Charmed.
Could be that gig on My name is Earl.

Tori and Shannen were best friends back in the day. Not sure if that's still the case.

Eddie said...

#1/2 Shannen/Tori
#3 Randy "Big Unit" Johnson
#4 Rachel Bilson

jw12 said...

I think Posado hates Johnson b/c Johnson always shaked off what Posado called.


I was thinking Pavano but he's still a Yankee but he's been injured forever. I think he dated Alyssa Milano.

jw12 said...

oops, to many buts

amp said...

#1/2 Shannen Doherty/Jennie Garth

Princess said...

Agree with amp, I think it's Shannen and Jennie instead of Tori. It's more common knowledge that Shannen and Jennie hated each other and even got into a fist fight one time!

Jennie always acts like an angel but I think more people actually want to see Shannen return rather than Jennie. (At least I know that I do and any DListed reader knows that MK agrees!)

Also, they've already started the promos for 90210 and I've noticed that Lori Loughlin is in the promo, but no Jennie Garth!

Jamie's Girl said...

Jenny Garth was always an angel on the set. Heigl should take note. Anyway, #3 made me throw up in my mouth thinking of Randy Johnson and his soup strainer mo' on that nasty puss.

I say Rose too.

Katja said...

Wasn't Brittney Murphy ousted from that Disney movie? Tinker belle. I don't know how Mae Whitman could be her nemisis though. She has done alot of voiceover work though- maybe she got roles BM (ha ha) wanted.


(born June 9, 1988) is an American television, movie and voice actress. She is known for playing the titular role of Grace in State of Grace and for her featured appearance on the TV show Arrested Development, where she played the role of Ann Veal, George Michael Bluth's girlfriend. Her best known voice work at this point is as the voice of Katara in the animated television series Avatar: The Last Airbender and American Dragon: Jake Long as Rose/Huntsgirl. She also appeared as the President's daughter in the movie Independence Day. She will provide the voice of Disney's Tinker Bell character in the self-titled direct to DVD movie.

amp said...

The new 90210 site shows that Jennie Garth will play her old role Kelly Taylor as a guidance counselor.

hesaweiner said...

#2 Shawn Chacon or El Duque... Randy couldn't get that lucky ewww.

Or maybe he was a Yankees pitcher and still in the majors, not as a player..but as a coach?

rosie said...

I think it's Tori for sure (along with Shannen)for #1. Why else would Ent refer to it as "an old family standby"? It's because the show was her father Aaron's. The angel thing isn't referring to Jennie it's to let us know it's 901210 because Aaron Spelling also produced Charlie's Angels.

rosie said...

Just found this link to a recent article on how Tori pissed off Shannen by making fun of her on her "Notorious" show, so that explains the "nemesis" remark.

rosie said...

oops,here it is :)

classalpha said...

... I also thought of Britt and the new 'Tinkerbell' for #1&2. The only reason *it* wouldn't fit Her is because 'Tink' is a movie and not a "show"... unless "show" is just used for blind item "poetic license" and is not meant to be *specific*. I guess if Britt was supposed to promote 'Tink' by shooting television commercials/adverts for it but "flaked out"... then *it* would make "sense". And Britt was in that *transvestite flick 'Angels'* and also *used to Be *MY* So Very Innocent "Angel".

amp said...

Maybe this is a far stretch - back to Jennie Garth and the angel comment: Jennie was in TV shows Teen Angel and Teen Angel Returns (w/ Jason Priestly), as well as being the spokesperson for Angels Soft - Angels in Action a few years ago... today's my first time checking this site, so I have some catching up to do with processing the clues given - thx 4 ur patience!

RandomRamblings said...

1&2. Tori Spelling/Shannen Doherty
3. Could be any of the pitchers.
4. Rose McGowan

Gayla said...

I was looking at the wiki for 90210 (I know, but hey, even a broken clock is right two times a day) and it noted that Tori was confirmed on May 27 to be a part of the show but postponed her appearance until later in the season due to recently having a baby in June. Meanwhile, Shannen was just confirmed to be on the show last week, and her story is still in the 'initial concept stages. So I'm also thinking Tori/Shannen, and the 'perfect angel' line is an ironic reference to Shannen's reputation for being anything but. Honestly it just never ceases to amaze me that Shannen continues to get work considering how her difficult rep precedes her.

But considering that Tori DID just have a baby, maybe she genuinely didn't feel up to doing the promos because of being pregnant and/or fatigued and it's not as dramatic as it seems, it just left the producers in an inconvenient position and they had to scramble a bit. Maybe.

I'm not saying she is or isn't a diva, just pointing out that she actually had a plausible excuse for bailing on the promos now. To go along with what equinox said, I can see Tori wanting to stay home with her baby girl but also really, really, REALLY not wanting to lose this opportunity and trying to negotiate taping the promos at her house or a little later. And when that didn't work out negotiating a midseason appearance.

Ernestine said...

No offense, classalpha, but I have NO IDEA what you're trying to say. NO. IDEA. The asterisks are a little distracting.

Simple English in plain sentences, please.

Princess said...

Gayla, I just read that while Shannen and Tori were friends before, when Tori wrote her book she called Shannen "arrogant". Also, you made a great point about maybe the reason she wanted to shoot at home was because she had just had her baby.

So, I'm changing my vote from Jennie/Shannen to Tori/Shannen.

Still, I'm wondering why Jennie is not in the promos!

audieh_1 said...

For those who think Randy Johnson's looks come into play...the man is sitting on a fat wallet. There are a lot of women out there who would do him if they thought they could get a few $$$out of the deal.

Shannon and Tori haven't been friends since her first show whatever it was called.
#4, I'll go with Nicolette
Sheridan.

@ ernestine:
i'm sorry, i didn't read all the comments because i was cracking up too much (yes, somebody here may owe me a keyboard)! it's off topic, but i realized the other day that i still have my arm... i'm not fast or strong, but my aim is solid, that's what happens when you grow up with an older brother and a bit of a tomboy!!!
and yet i despise baseball, too! even nearing fifty, my brain sux, (what was this post about?) but don't knock my throwing arm! i'm sorry, guys, hahahahahaha!

Ernestine:

....and yeat, "classaplha" is STILL easier to understand that Ted C.

Ernestine said...

I don't care. At least Ted doesn't use fucking SCAREQUOTES.
