Today's Blind Items - With A Classic Hollywood Item

#1 - Classic Hollywood. Same guy from yesterday who bought the coke for his son's birthday. So, anyway our guy who is more fully described last week was in rehab several times. One of his attempts at rehab took place out at Betty Ford. Prior to going to rehab he made arrangements for a helicopter to meet him in the desert with drugs. He would then use his exercise time to walk out into the desert, meet the helicopter and do his drugs. He would repeat this each day.

Back to the present, well almost present. The first name that pops in your head in the one below is probably the answer.

#2 - What NBA all-star had a really wonderful way with women even back in high school. I remember high school. Lots of innocence. Not so for our NBA star. Favorite activity? Well he would find some girl and sweet talk her until she wanted him. I mean this guy was already huge, and extremely popular. Our NBA player would take the lucky girl out to his car in the parking lot and force her to perform oral sex. Then, when he had finished in his porn star way if you know what I mean, he would literally force them out of the car just like that. Such a way with women.

Kobe? He's the douchebag, I would say.

Jamie's Girl said...

Peter Lawford died in 1984 and Betty Ford was founded in 1982, so it is probably him! He does cok, Rat Pack-Style!

Jamie's Girl said...

^^^^^OMG it should be COKE! Sorry Enty!

Christella M said...

So totally Kobe!

Alan said...

i know someone who went to high school w/kobe who said he'd always get face before the games from different girls. ent's line about the star already being huge and popular makes me wonder if it may be lebron though, as he had more fanfare early on.

adrian said...

Wow! #2 has better lines than Blaaaaake Incarcerated.

maggiemei said...

I googled Peter Lawford, and Betty Ford, and it seems he stayed there many times. Enough to kow his way around the system.

I think he have our 4th man!

Ariel said...

Kobe

Mooshki said...

#2, Gah. I remember reading a blog entry from a woman who hooked up with a guy in a bar, and he was so used to porn, and so inexperienced with real-life sex, that he couldn't figure out why on earth she didn't want him to cum on her face. The idea was just inconceivable to him. I think in the end she grabbed his balls and threatened to crush them if he did it. If only some of the girls had tried that on #2, he might have turned out to be less of a #2.

"Already huge" makes me think Shaq, but I don't know much about him.

littlemanwhatnow said...

al...my freind went to h.s with kobe too...and she said he was very popular and a total dick

Kristen S. said...

I've met guys who think all women just craaaaaave anal sex, because of their porn-watching. Some women like it, but I'm guessing most would prefer vaginal penetration any day.

Serena said...

When Kobe was arrested for rape he admitted to the cops he liked to cum on girls' faces. I think the Smoking Gun has the transcripts. So #2 sounds like Kobe.

bethany said...

#2 is LeBron, he was huge down in Akron where he is from.

DetroitRocker said...

List of actors that did rehab at Betty Ford per their website:

Tony Curtis
Gary Busey
Chevy Chase
Kelsy Grammer
Corey Haim
David Hasselhoff
Don Johnson
PETER LAWFORD
Robert Mitchum
Richard Pryor

If we are looking at old hollywood, I would look at Peter Lawford for #1.

Kara said...

Kobe - Because he is the first one you would think of. Especially with all the "force"s. Force her to perform, force her out of the car.

And he was recruited right out of highschool too.

califblondy said...

I'm very familiar with the Betty Ford vicinity desert so I can only hope our cokehead was walking around on a day like today when it's 115!

Cheryl said...

Here's a kinky Peter Lawford story. According to a book by his last wife, he would keep a vibrator strapped to his "little Peter" for hours at a time. He would walk around and drive like that.

Gossip Monger said...

yeah! tomorrow is reveal day!!!

Flora said...

Kobe took Brandy to his prom- or was it the other way around? He wasn't even in the NBA yet, still in high school, and got photographed with his (then) celebrity date which was in turn published in Kneepads AND Newsweek. Another bright moment in American Journalism.

I guess that would have been 1997 as I recall this because of the job I had at the time...

Glad for the Betty Ford reference since now we can finally nail down a timeframe for this "Classic Hollywood" blind. All this Peter Lawford business is beginning to sound pretty sound to me.

sandman said...

definately the spoiled self-absorbed manchild, kobe, he was born to privelege & money, his dad was nba & he was the golden child from very early on.
with the upbringing he had, there is no way he could have turned out any different. teachers, coaches, friends, family & girls really screwed this guy up.

jax said...

'he was already huge'

shaq

OG Gossipmonger said...

um...betty ford is in eisenhower hospital....eisenhower hospital is a little far from the desert where a helicopter could park. i believe it's on bob hope drive?
i guess at the end of bob hope, by the casino, there is desert...buts thats pretty far to walk......

OG Gossipmonger said...

DUH, me! OLD hollywood. meaning rancho mirage was not quite as built up as it is now..... ohhkay

MEP said...

Ent wouldn't have mentioned the "such a way with women" and "force" repeatedly, plus his recruited straight out of high school popularity if it wasn't Kobe. Huge, I think, is referring to his star status . . . someone else mentioned his prom with Brandi.

OG Gossipmonger said...

i thought that was brandi's prom & kobe was already out of high school?

OG Gossipmonger said...

i'm wrong, it was his prom.

CB said...

Is Ryan O'Neal considered classic Hollywood?

califblondy said...

OG, I remember when there wasn't much of anything along the highway between Indio and Palm Springs! Now La Quinta, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Cathedral City, etc., all run together. LOL.

If I remember right Peter was experienced with helicopters. Wasn't there something that either he and/or Bobby helicoptered in the night MM died?

Emobacca said...

Number 2 is more likely Lebron since he was already a superstar in High School

OG Gossipmonger said...

where are you from califblondy? i was born in indio, but lived mostly in palm desert, rancho mirage & pinyon pines (up hwy 74, above palm desert)

yea its tough to explain to someone that the coachella valley is actually, PS, RM, PD, Indian wells, bermuda dunes, la quinta & then indio, when it just looks like & feels like one big town.

who is the guy who lives across from the eisenhower hospital? he created the tv guide or something, he was totally loaded.
i don't even know if he is still alive... he lives on a giant golf course type lot with a big pink wall surrounding his property...
i'll have to get ahold of my dad & ask him.....

OG Gossipmonger said...

ok, well my dad is not picking up his phone, but by using google earth, his house is on bob hope drive & frank sinatra....a giant lot, really rich guy, had something to do with the tv guide or inventing or both (lol)...
this is like my own private blind...only i dont even know the answer!!

OG Gossipmonger said...

but, also, using google earth shows what a dummy i am. eisenhower has still a BUNCH of desert surrounding it :):):):)

OG Gossipmonger said...

alright, i've solved it myself. Walter Annenburg!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walter_Annenberg

thats his giant lot on the corner of bob hope & frank sinatra.

SugarTwiiiins said...

#2 is totally Kobe. Yeah, LeBron was already famous in high school, but he doesn't have a bad reputation with women.

Kobe publicly admitted to choking that woman while he had sex with her. After paying her off in exchange for dropping the charges, he issued a public apology to the woman (who does that if they did nothing wrong?) and said he "could understand why she thought it was rape." He also famously bought his wife that huge ring after the rape thing blew over. He has a way with women.

RagDoll said...

#1 Lawford. And now I have a visual of the old goat wandering the desert with a strap-on tied to his business. Thanks guys, LOL

#2 I think it's Kobe, as well. He was very young when he started out. Carmelo Anthony and Lebron "King" James both had buzz for their playing in high school, but Kobe even DATED a high-school girl (Vanessa, whom he married) when he was an NBA player. So Ent.'s repetition of "High School" might be a clue. And Kobe was regarded as the 2nd. coming of Mike Jordan at the start of his career (I think LeBron is better than Kobe, though...)

Sylvia said...

Can't stand Shaq and Kobe both are so stuck up. Still remember when Shaq was bragging he did Cindy Crawford. Whether that was true or not thought he was an SOB for saying that instead of keeping it to himself as a gentleman.

Regarding Kobe how can his wife stand being touch by an asshole like him. Does money count that much that she would sell herself for money.

OG Gossipmonger said...

he also bought vanessa the world's only converted-to-automatic lamborghini murcielago (or however it's spelled)
that bitch....

yeahwhatever said...

#2 is most definitely Kobe. My cousin went to the same HS, Lower Merion. He was spoiled and infamous even then.

Flora said...

Getting off the Peter Lawford train momentarily to play devil's advocate and getting on the Robert Mitchum train now that I see from detroitrocker's list that he did time at Betty Ford.

I remember from a period of time spent "repairing" old Life magazine issues that Robert Mitchum and two other guys had a big scandal in the 1940s for being busted for mary jane, reefer, the wacky tabbacky...with a young, bottle blonde wannabe starlet no less! (Google is your friend: Lila Leeds, sad, sad, story of a life; see also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/She_Shoulda_Said_No!
and
http://home.sprintmail.com/~sknolle/mitchum/ridpath.html)
He also had three kids, including two sons and smoked pot until the end of his life. The one way it doesn't work with Robert Mitchum is that he only had one wife (Dorothy- thanks IMDb!) who he married prior to becoming a "star", and (I think) coming out to Hollywood. So, the allusion to #4 in the original blind of "prior to #4's marriage" indicating only one marriage would work, except that RM was married prior to arriving in Hollywood probably doesn't.

Peter Lawford was married several times...but...his own mother claimed him to be homosexual, so that would fit with the OG #4 swinging both ways.

Schiesse! I am really enjoying the Old Hollywood blinds but gosh, they're hard!

itsnotabear said...

#2 the first name that came to mind was michael jordan. when he was with the wizards, he got caught cheating on his wife in a bowling alley in dc. a bowling alley.

Flora said...

..."now I have a visual of the old goat wandering the desert with a strap-on tied to his business."

And so do I, only of an actual old goat. It's quite the image. Thanks, Ragdoll! ;p

jax said...

wow 41 posts and gossipmonger is about 35 of them...lol.

RagDoll said...

flora: and now, so do I.... :D

OG Goss: WTF?! A Murcielago will go 90 mph in FIRST GEAR. She couldn't learn to shift into FIRST GEAR????

OG Gossipmonger said...

yea, sorry....but to be fair, i like to go by OG now, since SOMEONE is a name-monger.

wow, you went thru & counted how many posts were mine!? jax, how sweet!!!!!

OG Gossipmonger said...

ragdoll, i got that info off wikipedia, i probably should've mentioned that.

so this is post 37?!

at least ent knows i love him & check his site 150 times a day.

plot said...

Flora, Peter Lawford has a very *interesting* relationship with his mother. She wanted a girl, so she dressed Peter like a girl and treated him like a girl until grade school or something (this reminds me of how Liz Hurley dresses her son.)

There's lots of innuendo and bitterness b/t Lawford and his mum. Even for the nasty way she treated him (she acted like she hated him) he could never let go.

Flora said...

Flora said...

Whoa, plot, that makes the whole Lawford scenario muy interestante.

So, Lawford's mom might have only told the studio execs that her son was a homosexual to continue to "keep" him and control him in a really sick Mommy Dearest type of thing? (except, that is, for the fact that he probably did swing more than a hammock in the wind- did Mommy drive him to it?)

OG, I totally feel ya girl. I usually don't go more than two days without checking in on this site, and might go a week or more without posting anything, but with the promise of *REVEALS* so, so, so very close...I...just...can't...stay...away...

CDAN is my crack, and crackdom is gettin' it on and movin' uptown!

Jordon said...

#2 is LeBron. Kobe was not "huge" at all in high school, LeBron was being hyped as an NBA superstar since he was in 8th grade. Remember, Bron was the one who got a $90 million dollar deal from Nike as a SENIOR in high school.

kellysirkus said...

the reason #2 is who ever pops in your mind first:

because it's ALL of them!!!!!

cinnarose said...

Oh, I cannot wait until Friday. I will be vegging in front of my computer all day, awaiting the reveals.

valerie said...

kobe was *huge* in high school. He took pop superstar Brandy to his prom, and he was already projected to go straight to the NBA (at a time when high schoolers didn't make the jump to the NBA). He was a household name even back then.

All the clues point to Kobe for #2.

Visman said...

I think jax was pretty diplomatic og. You prattle on and on and on and on in just about every thread using them a your own personal chat room. I just skip past them usually but lately you do seem to be about every other post. It's all good, I figure you'll taper off eventually.

Katie said...

i agree, the way the item is worded it is totally about kobe. but i'm from the cleveland/akron area and had friends that went to hs with lebron and he was/is an ass. cheated on his gf ALL the time.

Carmen said...

Off thopic I know but did we ever get a complete list of what would be revealed on Friday? Do we know what time? I swear I'm more excited about this than my vacay next week. I'm so sad :)

Julie said...

Alan, where are you from? Kobe lived somewhat near here...and he took Brandy to the prom lol

Julie said...

uhh i didn't read the comments that said that he took Brandy to the prom. My friend was at that prom taking pictures lol

The Dude Abides said...

As a huge Laker fan and sometime defender of Kobe, this is undoubtedly him. The ironic thing is that if this blind item is true, then he got charged in the Colorado case for what was likely consensual sex, while he's gotten off scot-free all those other times for borderline coercive sex.

Gayla said...

My first three guesses were Kobe, Lebron, and Michael Jordan, in that order. I eliminated Michael because of this - "Back to the present, well almost present." Michael was in high school in the 80's, not quite old 'Hollywood' but not almost present either. Kobe and Lebron's high school years are much closer to the almost present criteria.

Also, because this blind refers to dirt during the guy's high school days, rather than his college days.
I'm slightly projecting here but I think if it were a basketball player who had attended college we would not be reading a blind about his high school escapades. The college stories would be the more well-known and heavily circulated tales.

As pointed out, there was HUGE national hype around both Kobe (the original high-school-recruited player) and Lebron; I doubt the fervor over other players was greater than a regional level, limited to his home town and the college he was going to attend.

Between Kobe and Lebron I'd say Kobe, since the answer is supposed to be pretty obvious and Kobe is definitely an obvious waste of space.
And og, you can trust wiki this time. The thing about Kobe getting his wife an automatic Lamborghini was reported in a few entertainment news outlets, if I recall correctly. I know I remember seeing it on one of VH1's Fabulous Life Of... episodes.

#1 seems pretty settled so I have nothing to add to that, except damn that was a serious drug problem.

Gayla said...

"The ironic thing is that if this blind item is true, then he got charged in the Colorado case for what was likely consensual sex, while he's gotten off scot-free all those other times for borderline coercive sex."

So true. My suspicion about the CO case is that it started out consensual and then he wanted to do something that she didn't (anal), and that is where the 'rape' came in. But how do you argue that in court, exactly? "Well, yes, I had intercourse with him. I certainly agreed to have sex with him...but I didn't agree to the butt! That's the rape part!"

Technically it is rape but realistically so many people would have written her off as getting 'what she deserved' for being a dirty homewrecking whore in the first place. She already caught hell as it was. Imagine what she would have gotten if she'd come out with that argument. Though if he'd been in AL the girl could have brought sodomy charges against him.

I am getting a weird case of deja vu because I feel like I've said almost that exact thing here before. Hmmm.

Cute Little Redhead said...

So OG Gossipmonger posts a lot! I mean, so what? She has a lot to say or a lot of ideas and she's putting them out there.

I think it's rude to call her out and make her feel bad about it. Is there some rule about how many posts are acceptable?

Some people who frequent this site are not very gracious. It's like this little club and if you aren't in the magic circle....you can't speak.

That's why I usually just read and don't post. I just wanted to give a little solidarity to OG. OG..I liked your posts, btw.

Ayesha said...

gayla: I agree with your theory about the Kobe incident. I think that's exactly what happened. However, if he forced her to do anal when she said she didn't want to, that IS rape.

Just because you consent to have sex with someone doesn't mean you give them permission to do anything they want to you.

boobsu said...

To be honest and not trying to pick a fight, but when Twist posted on here, Jax, you posted quite frequently as well.

kane said...

#1 -- Don't have a clue

# 2 -- Yao Ming?

littleoleme said...

Cute Little Red Head - Couldn't agree with you more. Lord knows I've been called out for having the nerve to comment or for having a different opinion than others.
You nailed it when you said some people run this place like it's their own private club. Just ignore them and enjoy the site

boobsu - good point!

og - type away!

liveunderarock said...

Twisted Sister definitely holds the unbreakable record of most (confused) comments per post. ;)

It is all good to finally see people other than myself defend the ones bullied by the middle-aged mean girls club. There is strength in numbers.
OG, Cute Little Redhead, and littleoleme, post away ! :)

Cute Little Redhead said...

To liveunderarock (such a cute name)
THANK YOU. It feels good to know I am not alone.

Flora said...

Word, Ayesha, word. That's one example of how f***ed up our culture is concerning the definitions of rape. I could relate a parallel story from my own life but I'll spare everyone the inconsequential deets.

Instead, happy de facto "Friday" Americans- three day weekend (!!!) and happy Big Reveal day to everyone wherever they may live! Can't bloody wait!!!!!!

califblondy said...

Let's all have a group hug as we IMpatiently await the big reveals tomorrow.

Even though I'll be out of town, you can bet I will stop whatever I'm doing to check this site.

liveunderarock said...

"THANK YOU. It feels good to know I am not alone."

cute little redhead, I should be saying that to you ! I have felt like Whoopi Goldberg on the view for months. ;) It has been good to see the turn around that has been occurring the last few weeks. It has always amazed me that the ones bullied the worst in the past were the ones most deperate to turn around and join their club. I can't believe Enty is pleased to have a few keeping down the hits & comments on his blog.


@shoe addict, if you are reading this, I attempted to answer your question on A-list that you asked on the Tuesday blind.

Have a great fourth, everyone !

OG Gossipmonger said...

GROUP HUG!! i love this site, everyone. i do like to use it as my own personal chatroom & i'm sorry if some of you have to scroll past my "35" messages.
some posts i get excited about & others i don't even post on at all. you are also forgetting someone stole my name & is still currently using it. it's why i reverted to "OG"

i love you all, even the haters, but especially the accepters :):)

Flora said...

Hug.
:)

Just found this when searching for a Kobe/Brandy prom photo, evidently I missed it when it was published 4 years ago- re: Kobe, Brandy, and Kobe's wife's big ring-

http://entertainment.myway.com/celebgossip/star/id/03_30_2004.html

I can't believe that years after the fact, Brandy was talkin' shit about Kobe's wife! Ha!

OG Gossipmonger said...

LOL flora! that is funny!

that's what jax & visman are doing, protecting their turf by flipping me off with their 4-carat CDAN championship rings!!!!

well, i'm going to get one too!!!
if i was really that big pain in the ass to ENT or any of you for that matter, he would ban me like lessucknoforprez or whatever his name was. :):)

Cute Little Redhead said...

littleoleme, you too! Thanks for the support. I didn't mean to leave you out!

BTW....I know we all LOVE this site! Omg...I check this like 7 or 8 times a day for new stuff.
I totally think there is room for all of us, and maybe no more room for snark?

califblondy said...

and maybe no more room for snark?


Hey, this place would be nothing without its snark. LOL.

Now for more important things, who thinks Madonna is doing A-Rod??

parisss said...

I'm from the Cleve/Akron area- and I knew a couple people who went to HS with Mr. Lebron. I'm not going to say that he is a saint, he makes his mistakes- but I did hear a few things that would lead me to believe (and hope) this isn't him. I have been told that he is fairly respectful of women. I am not saying he wouldn't/didn't cheat (although I honestly haven't heard that he did)- but I have heard that he is actually very nice. So I'm going with Kobe on this.

Cute Little Redhead said...

I totally think that Madonna COULD be doing A-Rod.

Does anyone else think he's kind of creepy....kind of a sleezy guy?
Maybe it's his eyes. I just always get this shivver when I look at him.

Is is bad of me to be GLAD that his alleged estranged wife Cindy might be getting hot and heavy with Lenny Kravitz? You know, the old "what's good for the goose is good for the gander"?

I think Lenny is really hot and kind of yummy.

Flora said...

Off topic: evidence was that Mike Tyson put up $50,000 to kill” two men.
http://sports.yahoo.com/box/news?slug=ap-tyson-gangtrial&prov=ap&type=lgns

Too bad it's too recent/he's not a classic singer-actor for him to be our cop killer.

OG Gossipmonger said...

cute little redhead, i totally think a-rod is creepy, & i think it's his eyes too. or the fact that he did it with mariah carey!!!

woah, flora, that's crazy!!! mike tyson is so out of his mind, hahahaha

adrian said...

Can I join the post away club & get a group hug? When I started posting, I got slammed by a few, but Twisted (I miss her) stuck up for me, & I will do the same. Until Enty is the one that tells us to stfu,
Some people are more opinionated than others, & some have more to share. So?

Cute Little Redhead said...

Adrian....absolutely! Big hugs to you! I think all the differences is what makes a place like this so interesting.

I love paging through the comments to see how everyone thinks.

adrian said...

Aw, thanks cute little redhead. Now I feel all warm & toasty.

Judi said...

Family friends accompanied Mrs. A-Rod to stay at Kravitz's. She's not alone with him. However, I do think Guy's appearance in NYC was to give the appearance of saving both marriages. LK is a vicious abuser, and all athletes are whores.
