Lainey Blind Item

A couple of years ago, I was the first to write about the celebrity IV diet – many of them would admit themselves to hospital under the care of a proper physician for 10 days, 2 weeks or so, eliminating food in favour of an IV drip chock full of essentials to keep one alive while starving.

Mainstream outlets only picked up on this last month.

Needless to say, the IV diet presents some major health issues. It’s also not that convenient. How many weeks on end can you disappear in a given year without arousing suspicion, to say nothing of the limitations on actually having a real life – who wants to spend weeks at a time away from home?

This is why she chose something, for her anyway, that was more … flexible. In more ways than one.

She was always super thin before baby. But after baby it’s been hard to lose the last 10. And to her credit, she did try hard. But nothing was working. And drastic measures had to be taken. Which is why she’s had one of those “lap band” things installed. Like gastric bypass (stomach stapling) only much less invasive.

But it’s typically for the morbidly obese. Not for an already slender women wanting to be more slender who is carrying around an extra few pounds.

Whatever. This is Hollywood. And this is a woman who needs to keep up.

So the weight came off. She’s stick thin again. And all’s good, right?

Well… the problem is that they’ve always wanted to add to their family. And it’s apparently recommended that the device be deflated or however they render it ineffective when a couple is trying to conceive. So he’s been like – ok, you’re done, you’re back to where you wanted to be so let’s get going!

But she’s too scared to stop the band thing, she’s addicted to the skinny, and her body over baby choice is now threatening her marriage.

I first thought of Gwynneth when I read this, but she has 2 kids.

kris said...

first of all, I am a long time reader and 1st time poster...

2 names came to my mind for this:

Jessica Alba
or
Katie Holmes

Although a lot of sites are saying:

Courntey Cox
or
Sarah Jessica Parker

Kay Xander said...

Xtina.

kris said...

BTW, Lanie said it is NOT

Gwyneth
or
Victoria Beckham

Desiree said...

Xtina? Is she skinny?

Did Debra Messing lose all her weight?

I think SJP is a great guess.

not a famous adrian said...

SJP is 43 & her son is about 5 now--I think if she wanted to add to her family, she would have done it a few years ago.
I think it is someone with a toddler.

nellyb said...

Doesn't SJP lose weight "allegedly" by "snorting it up". LOL.

kris said...

Lainey also said it's not Xtina...

kris said...

when did she say this???

"Lainey also said it's not Xtina..."

shazzzba said...

Courtney had a hard time getting pregnant ...I can't imagine this is her...they really wanted another baby..

joan said...

angelina, sillies.

Tug said...

Angelina.

Mooshki said...

Alba. Angelina just had the tummy tuck. She has no problem losing weight on her own.

kris said...

she said it yesterday in the Smutty Tingles:No lap band for her (IDLYITW)the link was for Xtina...

Mooshki said...

Crap, I didn't read the whole thing before posting. No way that a "body over baby choice" would EVER threaten Alba's marriage. But also means it ain't Angie. And no way it's Courtney Cox after her horrible infertility troubles.

Sylvia said...

How about Kelly from Regis & Kelly show?

kris said...

kris, thanks! I don't know that site, but I will check it out.

SFG said...

But I thought Xtina was on the verge of divorce anyway. Wasn't she the one making out with other dudes in front of her hubby? I was going to guess Deb Messing too, I always thought she'd looked a little healthier since she had the baby because she didn't lose all the baby weight. And she was known for how TEENY she was on Will & Grace.

Molly said...

debra messing doesn't look as stick thin as she did on w & g. i'm going with her, too.

kris said...

I had a thought for a second that it could be Nicole Richie, but it says "her body over baby choice is now threatening her marriage" and Nicole is not married. But that little 'clue' eliminates a ton of people. Plus it says "baby" not "babies" so that kicks out a few people.

jax said...

actually Katie would be a great guess. we all know that kid was born in december so when she went in the hospital months later to 'give birth' she prob got fitted with the lapband...

stiffkittens said...

Good call Jax! I want it to be her too, because i cant think of too many people that are married with only one kid (damn that mysterious twin epidemic!)

She also has been looking thin and tired lately (or shall i say, before the whole 'layered clothes, maybe she's pregnant again' drama/publicity stunt).

Molly said...

katie wasn't always super thin, so i don't think it's her stiffkittens.

Myrlin said...

Nicole Kidman? Married, 1 baby, known for being stick-thin.

Christina said...

Leah remini

kimi said...

Katie seems like a good guess because she also looks so sickly, malnourished and grey. I guess it depends on what you consider super thin versus anorexic.

Green Wave Gal said...

Jaimie Pressley?

cricket said...

I would say Kidman fits perfectly except for the husband wants another kid thing. Keith didn't want this one so I don't see him wanting another one.

Dee said...

Lainey also eliminated Heidi Klum in today's Smutty Tingles. What about Rachel Weisz? She's looked super thin lately and has one child.

stiffkittens said...

Also Nicole seemed to have no time to worry about the extra few pounds - she was as flat as a board only 10 days after the birth.

Mooshki said...

Jaime Pressley was a beanpole again like two weeks after she popped, so I don't think she fits the blind.

LiTtLe BiTcH said...

Nooo... Think about it... Posh Spice..

parissucksliterally said...

Kidman would fit perfectly except she didn't gain ANY weight while pregnant. So, where would these "last 10 lbs." be?

No one can convince me she carried that baby.

kitty said...

Definitely Nicole Kidman. She's always been obsessed about being super thin. That "last 10 lbs" was totally in her mind.

...

Molly said...

Courtney Cox is in the random pics today. Could it be her?

MontanaMarriott said...

The IV diet is not a new thing, its is old as hell. It was first mentioned in Valley Of The Dolls.

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

molly ~ i don't think the random pics have anything to do with a Lainey blind but i could be wrong also. I'm not sure Enty gets the answer from Lainey before he post it on his site but correct me if I'm wrong please :)

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

dee ~ i like your guess for Rachel because she's not one of the usual suspects, but I don't think it's her as imo she would be considered an actor not a new celeb mom. therefore with that thought, anyone known for their acting may not be the right guess because of that statement.

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

re my last post...i do think that KatE Holmes could be it because she is as much an actor as a celeb...that's my thinking though

jax said...

Lainey and El are in no way affiliated so no use looking for hints on her blinds on this site.
She also does not reveal her answers to other bloggers and sometimes not at all!

Kidman doens't work for this,shes never been even chubby during that 'pregnancy' and was super skinny like the next fucking day.

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

right jax that's what i believed too for lainey clues outside of her site. a lot of times people look for clues here to her stuff and I thought it was best to clarify for everyone so no one wasted their effort.

thanks for the back up :)

Keva said...

Rachel Weisz is looking skinny lately, but she wasn't notably skinny before she had her kid. Plus, she's not married to Henry's father.

stiffkittens said...

parissucksliterally: Another dlister!

Maybe we need to think outside the box more - she hasnt specified what career or ranking the 'celeb' has. I always have a select dozen people that i automatically think a blind is about though, so im screwed...

PK said...

Don't know if anyone else noticed this as well, and wanted to point it out. Lainey said this about Courteney Cox today...


"But Courteney looks ghastly, non?

What’s the point of working your tits off at the gym and staying away from fries when your face precludes anyone from looking down anyway? Or maybe it’s a case of Karma Face. This belle is a beast. And now she’s showing it on the outside."


So do you think this means she's outing her as the Anger Management blind?? Would appreciate it if someone could help me figure that out. Thx!! As for this one, I have no idea. Would say Nicole Kidman, but I'm not convinced she was really pregnant so...

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

courtney cox is the bi for belle and the something...which is different then the anger mgt one. the belle one is a couple of yrs old. I personally believe that SJP is the answer to anger mgt and the lonely and doing coke (which that one has been confirmed).

my 2 cents (holy fuck...when did they remove the cent sign...am i that out of it...it's prolly been gone for 10 yrs and i'm just noticing it now. that's sad because i wanted to bring back the cent sign...i like drawing it hehehe)

Ernestine said...

PK -- GOOD CALL. I didn't catch that about CCA today, and I'm usually good at getting Lainey's subtleties. That Anger Management blind was fascinating. At first, I thought it was Messing, but I've heard that Courtney can be a royal bitch, too. I'll go with her for the Angry Lady one.

Has Lainey ruled out Alba yet? I mean, the girl is still a goddess (like or despise her, she is awfully beautiful), but it's also obvious that she's still carrying some pregnancy weight (I think she looks about a billion times better, tbh). But it's not as if I couldn't see Katie doing this, too. I'm sorry, but I think she has the weirdest body EVER. She's long, lanky, and chunky all at once. I'm not sure if Suri was the one to wreck Katie once and for all (I'm more likely to blame it one Tom), but she was FAR less physically awkward five or six years ago.

I know Xtina and Gwyneth aren't options anymore (though I never actually thought this was Gwyn, since Lainey fucking loves her ass so much). I think Xtina likes her post-pregnancy weight because now her fake tit-tays are even more ginormous. Remember how she was flaunting her jugs practically before Max's cord was cut?

I just cannot believe that every blind is about Nicole Kidman. She is so wretchedly boring to me; I can't imagine her doing anything this exciting. Oh, and I don't think she faked the damned baby, either.

audieh_1 said...

Maggie Gyllenhall.

ClaireFrasier said...

No guess, BUT:


How many people checked their keyboard after this post?


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

I sure did! I had to stop & look at it twice! just to check to make sure I didn't miss it! LOLOL

PK said...

Thanks for the help princess! And as for Alba, I remember reading somewhere a while back where she talks about the fat gene in her family. Like almost everyone she's related to has a weight problem. So I can see this being her. And you know Cash is just in it for the $$$. So of course he wants to pull a Federline. You know her ass is a total bitch too so ya, alright, my 2 cents right there haha

Allison said...

What about Keri Russell? She looked awfully thin after she had her baby - I think the baby's name is River? Her collarbones have been jutting out terribly. I don't remember her being quite so thin before the baby. Plus - I haven't seen her in a while.

miss anyone? :)

pj said...

Not sure about who this would be... but I have 2¢.
I have a Mac :)

Bxrlvr said...

And since the BI says she's married, that eliminates Halle, Angelina, Jessica, Jamie Lynn, and Minnie.

Miriam said...

Question, well, my two cents(not a MAC), would the ladies that delivered this last summer already be up to trying for another? I mean, they needed this device installed and it needed to work, which it appears that it did but, isn't it too soon for these ladies to be the suspects? I would think more like a few years ago.

Miriam said...

Jamie's Girl said...

I don't really see anyone who comes to mind that really needs the last 10 pounds. Catherine Zeta Jones is by far fat, but she is about a size 6, which means you are a cow (I'm an elephant by this standard).

Also, to me, this woman would have had a baby in 2007, not 2008, since someone wants to add to the family.

Miss X said...

Allison, I like the Keri Russell guess.

When was Katie known for being super thin?

No1uNo said...

Am I the only non-maternal b*tch who think it's horrible to ask someone who's been struggling (and doing crazy things like the lap-band deal, yikes!) to get their body back the way it was before the baby to have another one JUST when she's finally succeeded in losing the weight? I mean, at least wait a year so she can enjoy it! Or maybe he did, I can't quite tell from the blind, but that's what struck me. I hope he at least waited until she finished breast feeding and could have caffeine and alcohol again! I know, I'm a heartless shrew.

I'd like the Debra Messing guess, because it's been a while since her first baby so the husband wouldn't be unreasonable to be thinking about another, but I thought we already knew they were getting divorced? So the marriage would already be beyond "threatened" -- or did I just imagine I read the were divorcing.

ms snarky said...

when I read it, this blind just screamed Courteney Cox to me. The baby's old enough where the hubby would be getting pissed about another pregnancy happening before it's too late, and Court is super thin, before baby and after. I don't think this could be someone whose baby is less than 2 - 3 years old.

i am a princess, my only thought was that if enty had the scoop about who it was he might post a photo in the random pics, but i guess if he had the scoop he would have posted it as a blind himself. so you're right and nevuh mind.

Kiradris said...

I don't see how it couldn't be Katie Holmes. Before Suri, she always had a very thin, model-type body (Some people don't remember this, but back in the Dawson's Creek days, she was considered the hot one, and Michelle Williams was the weird duck-looking one. It wasn't until Brokeback Mountain and Heath Ledger legitimized Williams that people like her better than Katie). After Suri, she was noticeably heavier. Also, Tom Cruise supposedly was dissapointed that Suri was a girl, and wanted to try for a biological boy. And to boot, Katie has been walking around looking extremely sickly, ashen, etc.

Amy said...

As weird as he is, I don't think Tom is a bastard. Furthermore, I don't think he would be cool with Katie ever getting a lapband. I mean, he thinks the cure for psychosis is vitamins and exercise, so why would he sit back while she did that to lose 10 freakin' pounds?

ms snarky said...

just to play devil's advocate (but full disclosure I'm not a tom cruise fan!)

The blind didn't say that the husband here was okay with the lap band, just that he went along with it, and now he wants it gone. and another baby. Katie has shown that she has a little bit of independence left in her - the Bway show, which I'm sure he didn't really want her to do. I still think Courteney for this. But Katie's a possibility.

shakey said...

I find it a little disconcerting that people find Katie Holmes as not being super thin. To me, Keira Knightly anorexia-like thinness is sickly; Katie is super thin - never chunky.

Molly said...

shakey, i can't speak for everyone else, but when i made that statement i said she hasn't always been super thin, which is what the blind says. before tc, she always looked healthy to me, but not super thin.

Starburst said...

Hahah, I don't know how this would be Katie Holmes, I can't see Tom Cruise begging her for another child after Suri, especially since he'd have to have sex with her again, and hes probably done with having sex with women, if you catch my drift ;)

Miriam said...

Interesting article on the state of the Cox-Arquette marriage over baby.
