Today's Blind Items - With A Classic Hollywood

Yes, all the classic Hollywood items will be revealed on Friday.

#1 - So, remember the guy from the foursome a few weeks back? He was #4 in case you want to go back and look. Anyway, he had several children and one year he was so incredibly messed up on drugs that he had not had time to get a birthday present for his son. So, what did he get him? No, not a hooker, he had already done that in a previous year. No, one time he wrapped up a couple of grams of coke in wrapping paper for his teenage son's birthday. Nice huh?

Back to the present

#2 - This hot C+ list and B name recognition television actor on a hit network drama is known more for his television roles than his films although he has been in some big ones. Well it turns out that when he was coming up and barely making ends meet he had a girlfriend who supported him through it all. Then he got his big break on this hit network drama and while he was signing the contract he was also dialing the phone and breaking up with his girlfriend.

Hookers & coke? Now that's quality parenting.

Jamie's Girl said...

#2 - for Skeevey people like this, I always think of that loser Lorenzo Lamas!

adrian said...

huh? We got my son a Wii & my daughter a bag of Free People & gladiater sandles. They haven't complained yet. Hope they weren't expecting something else.

myxnmingle said...

As much as I love him, I'm thinking Josh Duhamel for #2. He had a very long-term gf unil he signed onto Las Vegas, then he dumped her and started dating Fergie. Also, he has been in some films (Win a Date With Tad Hamilton, anyone?)

Flora said...

Hurray for reveals!

Lil said...

Is it Friday yet?!?!?

1. I think from the previous blind it was Peter Lawford.

2. I need to think about

Ashley said...

I was also thinking Josh Duhamel

Dead Kennedy said...

1. Bobby Brown.

2. Patrick whatzhisname on that lameo medical show that Heigl's on.

Lucky777 said...

a couple of grams??? that's it for a birthday????

sillyme said...

I'm thinking of Peter Lawford, too, but what was the date of the original blind?

sillyme said...

Dead Kennedy,
Patrick Dempsey had a long, abusive relationship with a woman over 20 yrs his senior before he was given his break. Maybe Enty's referring to him. He actually married the woman though (her name was something like Rocky), so it may not fit with the clues.

sdrew said...

What is so special about #2? People (even non-celebrities)do that all the time... he obviously was using the poor girl and never intended to stay with her anyway. A phony-baloney actor using somebody to get what they want? crazy.

Bryn said...

#1 - first to pop in my head - Ryan O'Neal, model parent. But I didn't see the original blind.

Flora said...

Peter Lawford is a damn good guess. I also noted that Christopher Lawford is a big 12-step supporter, possibly because of a wild childhood family life, perhaps?

I think Patrick Dempsey is bigger than C+, particularly since Grey's revitalized his long-time spavined movie career. I mean, I remember other films besides that damn teenage lawnmower movie with the Beatles song, but none really after 1990 until about two years ago.

Mooshki said...

sdrew, good point - isn't that how many men put themselves through med school?

Flora said...

Oooo...Ryan O'Neal is a good guess too. Tatum has said some crazy stuff about her brother...though does Ryan qualify as "Old Hollywood"? I mean, he's still working.

Flora said...

Sillyme- good memory! I totally remember Patrick Dempsey shacking up with an older woman in the 80s, particularly around "Loverboy" and "In the Mood" when all the interviews were like, "What's it like to be a hot young thing sexualized by all these older women?" and he was like, "Um, normal!" Dang, Dempsey, you had to do "Mobsters" and I swear that movie alone crippled the careers of everyone in it.

For #2 I was thinking David Caruso but his divorces don't quite match up with NYPD Blue or CSI: Miami. Back to the drawing board...

kellysirkus said...

I'm def. on the McDreamy boat for #2

I think "g/f" is code for crazy old wife


#1 - I guess we'll know soon enough
-- but honestly, I'm sure plenty of rich freak 'rents have given their kids drugs and booze along with hookers

Ice Angel said...

Josh Duhamel has to be more than C+ list and I think he's actually more successful than people actually recognize his name. Plus Las Vegas is canceled.

How about someone from ER?

rowdyromanian said...

#2 - Jesse Metcalf

OG Gossipmonger said...

adrian - i'm intrigued, what is a bag of free people?! please don't tell me it's all the rage & everyone has one!! am i that far off the radar?

Flora said...

http://www.freepeople.com/

I *hope* that's what Adrian is talking about. Unless "Free People" is slang for "coke and hookers", lol! But then again, we're not talking about Pat O'Brien, are we?

ILoveWhiteTrash said...

For #2 I was thinking Chris Noth?

adrian said...

Free People--it's a store owned by urban outfitters & anthropologie--go on line--very nice embellished tanks, jeans, hoodies--beautiful stuff. If the girls aren't into juicy, then they fo for free people.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

The Patrick Dempsey guess doesn't add up. He was married to Rocky Parker until 1994, and he married his current wife in 1999. Grey's didn't start until 2005.

Josh D. on the other hand sounds about right.

adrian said...

no coke & hookers here--just nice clothes lol--when you buy in an actual free people store, as opposed to a department store that carries their line, they give you a gauze tote bag, not a paper shopping bag. They change the bagsdevery few months. Anyway, if you have teens, they LOVE free people. Very age appropriate & original looking. Definetly preferred over coke, but the coke is probably cheaper.

OG Gossipmonger said...

LOL thankyou adrian!!! i guess i AM that far off the radar, LOL

SugarTwiiiins said...

Patrick Dempsey has been married for quite a while, and I think he's above C list. I like the Duhamel guess.

adrian said...

OG, it depends where you live-- I was on the phone with a t-mobile rep in December, & she told me how she did all her holiday gift shopping at Wal-mart--she was in Tennessee, & said the girls love the clothes there. She asked me where I was shopping, & never heard of any of the stores I mentioned. I'm not sure where you are, but we have no lack of shopping in NY.

ej said...

the old blind was:

Four people involved in this. #1 and #2 were actors who made their fame in films, but both got their only real serious award nomination for television. Any movie lover will know who #2 is. #1, maybe not. #3 was an actress but gave it up when she married #1. Eventually she married #2 as well although the marriage to #2 was as a cover for #2 being gay. The twist to this story involves #4. #4 was an actor who also married into a really wild family. Everyone will know #4. #4 also tended to go both ways as well which must have made it fun when prior to #4's marriage, #1,#2,#3 and #4 used to periodically share one bed.

OG Gossipmonger said...

i live in las vegas (well, near, i have to commute there for work) & there seems to be no shortage of shopping here either.
it's just me, i'm a dork. LOL

Grace said...

#2: So many actors dump their wives or girlfriends once they've made it big. Harrison Ford is only one of many; Johnny Knoxville; George Clooney; Kiefer Sutherland; Jim Carey; yadda, yadda, yadda...

This happens all the time.

I always thought it was no accident that famous actors are attracted to others as famous as they are -- it's no mistake that you'll never see a Brad Pitt type marrying the local grocery store clerk.

delcodave said...

#1 - steve mcqueen

based on previous old blind, he was married to Ali McGraw.

Ali McGraw was married to Robert Evans who definitely has a backstory.

I dont know old hollywood. But I know I thought I read somewhere that Steve Mc. shared women with his teenage son. So, he was the first name that popped into my head.

kellysirkus said...

@ delcodave - that Rbt Evans backstory is a headspinner, huh?

wow

captivagrl said...

#1. ryan asshole o'neal

Flora said...

I'd have done McQueen and McQueen Jr. That's not weird, is it? Steve McQueen has been dead since I was a baby, but my god, I have the biggest "dead actor" crush on him.

Grace- That's what made Brooke Shields going for her tennis instructor so interesting!

Visman said...

Flora, are you refering to Andre Aggassi as a tennis instructor?

jw12 said...

Noooooo, I love Steve McQueen.

jw12 said...

flora- me too.

I discovered Steve on AMC when I was prego w/ my son.

selenakyle said...

Summa y'all are downright funny today! Thanks for the laffs, it's been a tough day.

Yeah...slack ass couldn't even come up with an 8-ball, whoever the hell he is.

Rosario said...

I think #2 is Justin Chambers - doesn't mention his current situation so its slightly vague.

shoeaddict said...

I've been reading here for about a month and I love it. I've never commented but I wanted to ask (shyly), how do we know who is A, B, C, D list? What qualities does an A list actor have- sells movie tickets? Stars in box office hits? is in the rags a lot?

Thanks!

Ed said...

Im really thinking Josh Duhamel. Is probably him for #2

OG Gossipmonger said...

LOL i had to share my new avatar with everyone

OG Gossipmonger said...

& if you click to make it big, no i did not add the text commentary about the mancrush, i just think the picture is funny!

adrian said...

That's even funnier than Ben & Cartman. I will keep mine for a bit longer, but then look for something fun. Damn, I wished I picked a good name!

adrian said...

I am sure you are not a dork-- I am just good at sniffing out every store/sale out there. No one likes to shop with me anymore, because they end up spending money they weren't planning to. Did you go on line?

OG Gossipmonger said...

you can still change your name, we will just have to put out some kind of National Bulletin so everyone knows it's still you! lol
ADRIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hahah betcha don't get THAT enough!!!!!!!!!!

& also, spending money that is not meant to be spent is one of my most popular pasttimes! not favorite, or even liked, but definitely popular! i did look online, that stuff is so cute, like californian hippie.
only, they have to stop dressing their models in britney boots!!!!! LOL

OG Gossipmonger said...

LOL check out this pic of sienna miller crying after shopping

http://img.perezhilton.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/fp_1349102_barm_miller_sienna_10_063008__oPt.jpg

its sooo depressing to be so rich & slutty!!!!!! waaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh

BlahFrickinBlah said...

I'm on the Peter Lawford-Duhamel train.

Can't be Justin Chambers...he's been married for a long time and has a billion kids with the chick.

adrian said...

Do you know EVERY person who says "Yo, Adrian" ALWAYS asks if I ever heard that before. In high school I worked in a supermarket, & the stock boys used to get on the loud speakers at night when all the customers were gone, & that's how I would be paged!
It's very nice to see all these cute little H.S. girls going to school in their little free people dresses. They look so pretty & carefree.
But, to get back to the blind, there is an issue in suburbia with kids going to Brooklyn for cheap heroin, & stealing their parents pain killers. And of course there is always pot floating around. So to hear some celeb giving their kids drugs is just so unbelievable--like Melanie Griffith
lighting her daughter's cigarettes for her. That is just so wrong.

adrian said...

and dirty looking. Even Fred Segal can't help her.

OG Gossipmonger said...

have you heard of cheesing?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheese_%28recreational_drug%29
& no (HAHAHAHA) not like in the south park episode.

yea, i got off the blind again...but i don't have any guesses anyway, lol

OG Gossipmonger said...

k later, my hard rocking amigo!!!!! i'm off work, yay!!!!!

jw12 said...

gossipmonger, i mean og, LOVE the avatar

brendalove@gmail.com said...

A couple of grams? What a deadbeat dad! Couldn't even get him an eight-ball.

I don't know if anyone remembers but if you see a picture of Josh Duhamel's old gf/wife, whatever she was, she was really really pretty.

RagDoll said...

brendalove:
maybe it was a starter kit? You don't want the kid ending up with one bored-out hole instead of 2 distinctly defined nostrils before he's old enough to even belly up to the bar, do ya? Responsible parenting, dammit, that's what that was! That said, I'm coming late to the party on the Lawford tip...


#2 And the Duhamel tip. Yeah, his former girlfriend was absolutely lovely. Hopefully, she did better for herself. What am I thinking? He's a douche, of COURSE she did. better

budford said...

I hope Evans is in there somewhere.

Flora said...

Ragdoll- you totally just reminded me of Danniella Westbrook with the "bored out hole" comment:
http://img.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2007/04_03/DanniellaMOS0605_450x520.jpg

I can't get enough of that picture. It's like driving by a horrific car accident every time I look at it.

Flora said...

Here's another, just so I can see if my avatar displays properly.

Jamie's Girl said...

#2 is not Patrick. Patrick Dempsey was married and had a child when he got the call for Grey's so it's not him.

BTW, I sure do think that Classic Hollywood is Peter Lawford and Christopher Lawford. Although Peter died, I think, before Peter made it out of his teens.

trashtalker said...

Good Lord, that nose photo is awful. Schools should show that to kids to scare the bejeezus out of them.

I don't think #2 is Josh. He and his former fiancee called off the wedding right before it was supposed to happen in May 2004. Las Vegas started in September 2003.

I don't have any good suggestions, though, despite pondering it for way too long. I can only contribute this list of top dramas: Desperate Housewives, NCIS, House, Criminal Minds, CSI, CSI: Miami, CSI: NY, Grey’s Anatomy, Cold Case, Brothers & Sisters, Without a Trace, Law & Order: SVU, Heroes and Private Practice

Manda said...

Both are ben affleck!!

Heh sorry had to be done;)

sully said...

You people need to leave the ghost of SMcQ alone and turn you focus toward Marlon Brando

Merlin D. Bear said...

Hey, Enty -
Since you're promising to reveal all the "Old Hollywood" BI's, does this mean you're going to do a reveal on the covered up death of the starlet too?
(For those who don't remember it, you'll have to search for it yourselves, I can't remember the tag that was used)

ally said...

I really think that 2 is Josh Dumal as I remember reading years ago that he dumped his very long time girlfriend, or even possibly fiance as soon as he hit it big.

i am a princess, yes i am said...

Oh my holy Fu*k, that picture scared the sh!t out of me. I'm going to tell my kid's DARE officer about using this.

I just want to ask that girl one question...Does IT hurt?!?

Starburst said...

Wow, I really like the Josh Duhamel guess. In January 2004, Duhamel was engaged to his girlfriend of several years, fashion model Kristy Pierce, although they broke off their engagement soon after.

2004 was the year that he started Las Vegas and he starred in "Win a Date with Todd Hamilton." Plus, now hes in Transformers and Transformers 2.

But I'm a little confused. He was on soaps from 1999 to 2003, how is that considered making ends meet? He won a Daytime Emmy for Christs sake!

Cheryl said...

Crhistopher Lawford was 29 when his father died so it could be Peter Lawford. I read Christopher's book and he had some crazy stories about things he had experienced as a child. Peter Lawford's mother dressed him (Peter) as a girl until he was 11 and he spent many years abusing drugs and alcohol. He was dissed by Frank Sinatra for failing to get him favors from JFK. Anyway, it could definitely be him.

nunaurbiz said...

No. 2: William Petersen of "CSI." Yup, he fits the bill. (pun intended)

DetroitRocker said...

In the book Kennedy's Secrets it tells all about Chris Lawford running away from his mom's home and he and a friend hitchhiking to CA to live with his then divorced father. He tells about sharing drugs and women with his father. In one of the books I read about the Kennedy's, I thought it did say that Peter gave Chris drugs for a birthday present.

I can't see Marlon Brando as being the best of father figures either.

Hi Shoe Addict !
Welcome to the asylum from another shoe addict. ;) Ent has his own definitions of the lists. All I remember is if you have won an Oscar you are always A-list or almost always. Whether or not someone can open a film on their own has something to do with it as well as how much they make per film. For television it has to do with the number of seasons they had starred in a hit series or something like that. There are at least two posts regarding A-list. You can do a search through the older posts. I am sorry I can't be more helpful and don't have it bookmarked to give you a link.
Some of the others can be much more helpful than I. If you don't find the posts ask again when dnfrommn is online or e-mail Ent. They are both good guys.
