Today's Blind Items

This aging, but not old, former B list television actress from a very hit television show and sometime film actress from some very forgettable films is someone with B+ name recognition and a career that has had lots of stops and starts. One thing has been holding her back for years. She thought she found a way to solve the problem but it didn't work. She has always had an alcohol problem but now she has discovered a new best friend called meth. Her habit has got so bad that she cannot always wait for her dealer to come to her. Several times she has had to actually go out in her very conspicuous car and go make buys herself.

pamela anderson

Emobacca said...

Pam would be someone with A+ name recognition

Big City Girl said...

Shelly Long

Miranda said...

Why did Kirstie Alley spring to mind? Of course, if she was on the meth, she'd be way skinnier ...

palealebrew10 said...

kim cattrall? kristin davis?-she admitted to having had a drinking problem in the past.

just trying to think outside of the box.

Daaimah said...

Courtney Cox!

Big City Girl said...

Ok Shelly Long was just a first thought w/very forgettable films. Now I think it is Lisa Kudrow

Sarah said...

I really like the Kristin Davis guess. She has some forgettable films for sure.

KC said...

Kim Delaney

A Pimp Named DaveR said...

Second the Courtney Cox.

califblondy said...

kc, you got me with Kim. While I hope it isn't her, she sounds like a very good guess. Has she been in any forgettable movies though?

Stephen said...

The conspicuous car comment gives it away. It must be Lily Munster.

Ross said...

Heather Locklear.

Mooshki said...

Kim Cattrall was in Mannequin. No one could EVER call that unforgettable, LOL!

OT: My CDAN Secret Santa just sent me a whole box of Chicken in a Biskit! Best. Day. Ever.

Jamie's Girl said...

Y'all are listing some A List name recognitions, like Courtney Cox, and Heather Locklear. I would definitely think B List name recognition is more Kim Delaney, etc.

kris said...

LOL @ stephen....Lily Munster (shaking head...)

Big City Girl said...

Kim Delaney fits "b" list and she has had a known alcohol problem, but she is not a "former" b list tv actress who sometimes does forgettable films. She is still doing tv ("army wives"). Although her list of films (not many) are all forgettable.

SFG said...

Yeah the conspicuous car has to be a clue...but the only person I can think of is Angelyne. (LA known "celebrity" who drives around in her pink cadillac and has her own billboard, don't know what she actually DOES so I know it's not her)

JS said...

Jennifer Esposito is in the Random photos, and Spin City was a very hit show, but IMDB shows JE is in "Samantha Who" now, so don;t Know. Teri Polo was also in the random photos....

JS said...

anomélie said...

Angelyne drives a corvette.

Big City Girl said...

What very hit tv show was Angelyne in?
Teri Polo a def. no. no hit tv shows, and her films were certainly NOT FORGETTABLE--"Meet the Parents".

Cheryl said...

Courtney Cox's problem in the past was cocaine not alcohol. The clue here is very conspicuous car. I thought of Kristen Davis too, but there are lots of drunks in Hollywood. I just hope she's not drunk while driving around in the conspicuous car.

Sis said...

The car is a definate clue, so I am thinking who has a Rolls, or something else along that caliber??

littleoleme said...

Stephen HA!! That was gold.

Ernestine said...

A VERY hit show, to me, indicates something that's won a bunch of Emmys and ended up syndicated.

Candice Bergen? Naaah. Too classy. I like the Shelley Long guess, honestly.

amster said...

SJPeePee, First wives club, failure to launch but what she drive?

JJ said...

I'm not certain Locklear is A list. Maybe, but not a given.

So, I'm saying it's Heather. Her conspicuous car is the one she was pulled over in recently. We saw plenty pics of that car which would make it insane of her to take it out to buy drugs.

kanonymous said...

It can't be Lisa Kudrow, she was A-list, or at least while Friends was on. She's also busy with some internet show right now.

kanonymous said...

"Candice Bergen? Naaah. Too classy."

What does THAT mean???? Just because she acts a certain way when she's in public (which isn't that often) doesn't mean she doesn't do meth!

I don't think it's her either, though. She was A-list while her show was on at least.

kanonymous said...

It can't be Heather Locklear. While it's debateable whether she's A list or B list, she definitely has A list name recognition. Also, she's been on more than one hit television show and the blind item says this actress has only had one hit show.

When Locklear was arrested, they drug tested her and found no evidence of illegal drugs, so I find it hard to believe she's on meth, unless she just started it a few days ago. The blind item makes it sound like this actress has a big problem though, if she has to go out and get it herself.

Also, the blind doesn't say she's not involved in a television series right now, just that her big hit show was in the past.

califblondy said...

Instead of Rolls or Corvette, what about an itty bitty hybrid? Has Pam or Courtney gone green?

Norah said...

calista flockhart
or would she be a list?

Lori said...

Lara Flynn Boyle? What does she drive?

Dijea said...

The first thought that went thru my mind was Christina Applegate.

london18 said...

definitely sarah michelle gellar!

aging, but not old...VERY HIT (cult) television show...Buffy....and some super forgettable films, plus a stalled career.

she's looking thinner than normal and more haggard than ever lately too...

BlahFrickinBlah said...

SMG has Cruel Intentions and I know what you did last summer on her resume. Two big films.

I like the Pam Anderson guess. She looks like rewarmed shit these days.

debra said...

Sadly I think it may be Kristin Davis--she showed up at a premiere recently in a BMW Hydrogen 7 — the world’s first hydrogen-powered car for everyday use. She has also been public about her problems with alcohol...

JJ said...

Good points kanonymous. You turned me.

If it were Kristin Davis would it say Cable instead of Television? She was on Melrose Place but, I think SATC is more of a hit.

Besides, did she have plenty of stops and starts? I think she just kinda stopped.

debra said...

JJ--I would think that TV includes cable (HBO)...also as someone else pointed out, I agree that the VERY conspicuous car is really the clue and I think "the world’s first hydrogen-powered car" would be very conspicuous...

Kiradris said...

Is Alyssa Milano B list? What about her?

swede in edinburgh said...

Maybe Michelle Rodrieguez (Lost and the forgettable Fast and the Furious) She had the DUI, so shes had an alcohol past, now perhaps the hard stuff?
Hmmm, what does she drive?

sauvage said...

Teri Hatcher. The VW-bus?

nennycakes said...

I say Julia Louis-Dreyfus? Maybe? She has had forgettable films - "North", anyone? What does she drive?

Gabba Gabba said...

Jennifer Aniston.

Cat said...

soo teri hatcher. yes, and she drives a green old timey VW bus.

newsgrrl said...

I'm liking the Teri Hatcher guess...

Laura said...

sandra oh

CC said...

Thank you SAuvage, i'da been shocked to get to the end of this list of guesses without a single Teri Hatcher guess! I'm somewhat shocked it took that long!

Dan said...

I can't believe there is a website on what stars drive...

Are some websites designed just for help with blind items??

Harriet Hellfire said...

I have been thinking about this one all evening but I really do not have a clue.

Kay Xander said...

Nicolette Sheridan.

Ellen said...

What about Tiffany Amber-Thiessen? I don't know what kind of car she drives, but she has been in some forgettable movies and I would consider her B-list name recognition.

Ellen said...

Beth said...

Teri Hatcher

Locklear, Anderson, Cox and Aniston have all been A list at some point -- either career-wise or in terms of name recognition.

Kudrow, who I think is a very reasonable guess, was never as famous as the other two, but I would still ultimately call her A list.

I like the Alyssa Milano guess, but the car sold me on Hatcher. It would totally explain her disgustingly thin figure and her absolutely wonky face. She needed all that work to attempt to cover up the ravages of drug abuse and time.

The Writer said...

It can't be Teri Hatcher; it says former B-list television actress. She's still on DH, and most would consider her B-list overall, but A-list for TV. I also have a hard time believing she has ever had a drinking problem.

deadeye said...

Shannon Doherty? Charmed and 90210, Keeps getting fired, DUI arrests, and some god-awful films.

dreadpiratecuervo said...

Gotta be Shannon! Love her though. Crazy bitch.

amster said...

How bout Debra Messing

svd said...

julia louis dreyfuss


although the kristin davis guess makes sense too, unfortunately.

Stephanie said...

what about debra messing??

Suzanne said...

Debra Messing makes the most sense to me.

She had a hit TV show, Will and Grace and she was in a couple forgettable movies. Her career has stalled more than once and now she's back on TV in a B-List TV show.

Plus, she's looking super skinny these days.

berlin_inside said...

Pam anderson-meth shows on the face and she looks horrible

Catherine said...

Also, Pam Anderson recently auctioned her Dodge Viper for PETA....a rather distinctive car. I think she's the one.

Get a Life said...

The Sex in the City Movie was a big hit this year and would not be called forgettable. Sorry, this one is not Kristin Davis.

Pam did have a dodge viper with custom racing stripes on it - that is a pretty conspicuous car.

I agree with berlin_inside - meth shows on the face and she does look like death lately.

About Shane Lear said...

Definitely Heather Locklear

PeepStone said...

London 18 - I completely agree. Might explain why she's distanced herself from Buffy as well. If she's going down the tube, she can't do action stuff much anymore. Oh sad! It's got to be Sarah Michelle Gellar. :(

Tea Lady said...

If you're the B list actress on a very hit tv show then I'm thinking you aren't the star, and I don't think a Mercedes Benz 4-series would be "very conspicuous" would it? So I have to nix on SMG even though her films have totally been forgettable.

Yesterday Heather Locklear got a "midemeanor driving under the influence, citing prescription drugs" & ruled out alcohol. I'm leaning in her direction on this one. Yeah, I know meth isn't a Rx but I figure the police in Montecito aren't going to say she was on meth even if she was....

Tea Lady said...

But Heather did “T.J. Hooker,” “Dynasty,” “Melrose Place” and “Spin City” so I guess maybe she doesn't quite fit this one... back to the drawing board...

Get a Life said...

Plus, what films has Heather been in? I thought she was TV only.

flikflik today said...

Sean Young!

About Shane Lear said...

I still think it's Heather Locklear. I think the films the blind item was referring to might be made-for-tv kind of films, plus all the starts & stops make sense since every few years she lands a new tv gig. And don't forget, she was pulled over recently while under the influence and it's rumored that she was in rehab last summer, too.

not on my dollar said...

Okay for those of you who are saying it's Julia Louis Dreyfuss that's just pure blasphemy. She's one of my favorites.

(Putting hands over ears, lalalalalala.)



I just couldn't handle it if it was true.

not on my dollar said...

I like Lily from the Munsters for this one. LOL! That's just priceless.

Molly said...

jld looks waaaay too healthy for it to be her.

and lmao@stephen w. the lily munster guess....

The elusive Robert Denby said...

Plus, what films has Heather been in? I thought she was TV only.

Most recently "The Perfect Man" and "Looney Tunes: Back in Action" - both forgettable, methinks.

What about Roseanne Barr? Even if you agree with her political views, it's hard not to think "meth addict" when you read her blog.

kanonymous said...

"And don't forget, she was pulled over recently while under the influence and it's rumored that she was in rehab last summer, too."

Again, Heather Locklear DID NOT HAVE ILLEGAL DRUGS IN HER SYSTEM when she got pulled over. Meth IS an illegal drug. Locklear had prescription drugs ONLY in her system. Meth is NOT a prescription drug. And she even had prescriptions for the drugs in her system, which is why she got charged with driving under the influence, but not illegal drug use.

Also, she was in rehab for depression, not drugs or alcohol.

kanonymous said...

"And don't forget, she was pulled over recently while under the influence and it's rumored that she was in rehab last summer, too."

Again, let me clarify: Heather Locklear DID NOT HAVE ILLEGAL DRUGS IN HER SYSTEM when she was pulled over. Meth IS an illegal drug. She had prescription drugs ONLY in her system. Meth is NOT a prescription drug. She even had prescriptions for the drugs in her system, which is why she only got charged with driving under the influence and not illegal drug use.

Also, she was in rehab for depression, not drugs or alcohol.

Since when is Sarah Michelle Gellar an "aging but not old" actress???? She's 31!

And Michelle Rodriguez is only 30!

I would say this actress is at least in her 40's, if not 50's.

Ema said...

for the people who said debra messing, she's currently on the starter wife on USA, so it can't be her.

Ellen said...

The more I think about this, the more I think it's Pamela Anderson. She has been jumping from job to job (remember her stint as a magician's assistant???) and she has looked really horrible lately.

SJ said...

What about Jenna Elfman?

kathryn said...

Lara Flynn Boyle, she looks like death lately, she was on the Practice which was a pretty popular show, she did Men in Black II, pretty big movie. Her career has definitely had its ebbs and flows. That's my vote.

Beautevil said...

What about Rose McGowan?
Forgettable films, Charmed is the hit television show.
She looks like a trainwreck lately, and has always had some sort of problems..
Don't know about the car part though, she has been in a car accident lately.. (but don't think that relates to the car reference though:S)

Amy said...

My first guess was and is SMG. Enty always refers to her booze issues and she was def. poised to be bigger after Buffy.

A few crap films later (Grudge 2, that one where she's a porn star, etc.) and a few recent pics where she looks like a middle-aged call girl tell me it's her.

Anna said...

FORMER B list television actress. Struggled with alcohol ....now METH?

It's Shannon Doherty.
