***Exclusive*** Balthazar Getty Fired From Brothers And Sisters


Wow. Let's see. It is almost 1am here on the west coast Christmas morning. Just got done seeing Jennifer Aniston and the Arquettes chowing down at Mastro's. Poor Alyson Hannigan was also there but no one even noticed her except for me. I have always had a thing for Alyson and keep hoping she will leave her husband and run away to my basement with me. A man can dream can't he? Without dreams then we are just kind of stuck in whatever rut we fall into. Oh, and I am drunk in case you have not noticed.

But, I am not too drunk to know what I heard around town when I was sober and that is that Balthazar Getty has been fired from Brothers And Sisters. I don't know the reason. I don't know if it is because of Sienna or because he was sleeping with someone else on the show or if he just wandered the set looking for twinkies all day and not working. All I do know is his publicist says Balthazar has not been fired, and I of course say his happy ass was canned just in time for the holidays. Balthazar was let go. Dismissed. Given a pink slip. Shown the door. Do you know how hard it is to get fired from a job like this. He must have done something completely f**ked up like snorting mercury or something with Piven in the back room while they looked at porn videos of the daughter of the producers.

Wow. It won't be long before this dude is doing dinner theater in Arizona.

somehow Ent, you're writing skills improve a bit when you're drunk. ;)

And I find it innerestin' that J.M. wasn't in attendance with J.A. at that Mastro's dinner... Unless he was, and you just forgot to mention it? Who doesn't spend their first Xmas with their 'love'? Hmmmmmm? ;)

interesting all around

I thought he might have been the diva in the BI a few days ago. If it was him, I am not surprised.

Casual Observer said...

While hardly a good example of the Christmas spirit on my part, it is always nice when people get their comeuppance. It sounds like Sienna was just the first step on a personal downward spiral -- you have to do something pretty bad to get fired from a network TV show.

Sylvia said...

If he and Sienna haven't broken up yet maybe that will be next hehehe.

Merlin D. Bear said...

Maybe he's just so contagious that they don't want it spreading?
I mean it was Sienna after all.

gillian said...

HA!

Merry Xmas indeed ;-)

Just wanted to take a break from cooking to say Merry Christmas to all on the blog. I'm doing everything from scratch, including effing around with Bread dough. Highlights will be be cream of tomato soup, you'll never go back to Campbells, after making it. Another highlight will be Gluehwein which is a good way to go on Xmas.Lowlight will be the bread as I see the cat is on the counter licking the dough... Merry X to all..Chuck

PJ Nelson said...

Please! I want the Gluehwein receipe... haven't had a good glass of that since being in Germany :)
Merry Christmas to all...
Too bad for BG, he must have really stepped in it to get fired.

Melanie said...

If you are posting recipes, please post the cream of tomato soup, it's my favorite soup.

Merry Christmas everyone!

cinephan said...

He's still got plenty of grandaddy's money. He only works for something to do with his time.

gossip said...

Seems like Ausiello will have to finally break the BI he had done about a month or so ago.

Aniston and Cox do this xmas eve dinner every year at Mastro's so I think John spent it with his own family. Also, the best pecan pie in the world is at Mastro's for those who have never been. But back to BG, I'm having a hard time wrapping this around my head as well. I'm thinking it was similar to the Grey's drama that went down when they outed TR. Since Balthazar and Kevin both dated Sienna, I'm thinking it was "him or me" a while back and the rest of the cast was just as turned off too. Now, how will they deal with the departure of his character? Killed? Move? Divorce? I feel terrible for the actress who plays his wife. Will her career suffer too?

BlackseatDriver said...

Ok..back for few..so far the soup is grear and the Gleuhwein rurted out pertty weill too..I've only had a cup and a halpf and itis gudo..also hwnated to ssay that this guy is the reveal to the actor that walked around in shorts only and demeanded that he be shot from the toro up..Ithinks

Janelle said...

BlackseatDriver, lol!

Actually, Gluehwein does that to me, too, but I don't have the benefit of it right now

Mooshki said...

I LOVE DRUNK ENTY! Hell, I love any Enty, but what an extra special Christmas present to log on and see this post. Merry Karma Day, Balthazar!

Grace said...

We'll soon be hearing that he chose to leave the show, or it was written into the show all along. They'll cover it up.

However, Rosetta probably wants him to remain employed so that she can get as much money out of him as possible.

And Sienna will be running for the next boy toy before I can say goodb......

kathryn said...

The money BG makes from "B+S" is pocket change compared to his family money.

notachance said...

His character is 100% annoying anyway - GOOD RIDDANCE is what I say. His wife on the show adds nothing anyway so she won't be a loss either.

Wonder if they'll kill him off or try to recreate him?

jax said...

ya that's his family's money,not his.

Caroline said...

I read the line, "Jennifer Aniston and the Arquettes chowing down at Mastro's"

as

"Jennifer Aniston and the Arquette clown chowing down at Mastro's"

I had one beer at dinner, three hours ago!

Wil said...

OH!!! EL!!! You saw Alyson!! Is she just cute as hell preggo??? I bet she is!! Damn!! I description would have been wonderful!! A pic even better! If you see any good ones .. please post them in Randoms!!

Thanks!!

doug said...

he cant come here to arizona and do dinner theater.. last B lister to do that was Bob Crane and we all know what happened to him for straying.,

Mooshki said...

I'm in gossip overload - can't remember any of my sources, but I know I read that Balthazar was being an ASS to the other cast members, and they had started to hate his guts. Sally or Callista would easily have the pull to get him axed. If he's the Ausiello blind, I think they're going to have him move away with his wife rather than get killed off.

Yellow Rose said...

Just now reading this post-a little late, I know-& my comment is WAY OT:

I gotta respectfully disagree with the camel as to where the best pecan pie comes from. As a proud native Texan (the pecan is our State Nut), I gotta say the best pecan pie can be found at any Goode Company (Goode Co.) restaurant. They sell the most around the holidays (you gotta order in advance if you want to buy a whole one) & they ship them all over the world. I didn't believe the claim myself til I finally tried it. Damn it-now ya got me craving it! ;) (Also, no way can I afford Mastro's, so I'll stick w/ Goode Co. :D)
