Today's Blind Item

So, I changed my mind about a blind item. This celebutard has a world of positive publicity right now from every corner of the earth. Know the quickest way to lose it? By dating a married woman. Sure, the woman is a B- film actress but her ticket to A list will die quickly if this scandal hits. Do you know who she is? Maybe. But she has been, and is going to be in some of the biggest movies of the year. You would definitely recognize her face. Our celebutard has serious A+ name recognition right now. Oh, and she is considered a newlywed by any definition which makes this extra juicy, extra scandalous, and extra career threatening.

The only person I thought of was Scarlett Johannsen, but she is not a celebutard. Can't figure this one out. Help!

Grace said...

An affair would not ruin Scarlett's career, and at this point, I would consider her just below the cusp of a A list actress. Besides, ENT said "maybe" we would know who she is, but we would know her face.

This isn't Scarlett. It's an up-and-comer whose name we may not know but whose face we do.

Hm.......

trashtalker said...

Based on the clues, I think the actress could be Kathryn Hahn. She's married, she was in Step Brothers, and she's in Revolutionary Road (which just opened today).

candigirl21 said...

kate hudson?

Amy said...

is this two women? or is the celebutard a man?

fester said...

I think the celebutard is a man with international A+ name recognition right now, and the female he's having the affair with is much lesser known, and newly-wed.

wenpetarky said...

Robert Pattinson?

Dee said...

Fester, I also think that's what Ent means. Maybe K-Fed for the celebutard? I mean, how many male celebutards are there with A+ name recognition? He's getting all sorts of "Father of the Year" publicity lately (he was even on the cover of Kneepads with the kids). No idea on the actress, though.

wenpetarky said...

^^ think about it. he's got A+ name recognition right now.. ppl are going nuts for him around the world.. the way the blind is written, it doesn't seem like he's A+ name recognition all the time.. like its something new. riight? as for the girl.. hmm. i have no idea. i know he was recently linked to Camille Belle but she's not married.

Jennifer said...

LOL PLEASE LET THIS BE ROBERT PATTINSON, I WOULD SERIOUSLY PISS MY PANTS LAUGHING.

HeyThere said...

I can't wait until this is revealed next week.

Beth said...

As amusing as Pattinson would be, I think celebutard means that this person isn't really employed/employable.

I think the celebutard is famous for being famous. K-Fed seems like a goods guess -- and he is indeed on People this week. Brandon Davis is the only other male celebutard that I immediately thought of, and he is supposedly with Avril Lavigne, but she isn't an actress.

I'll go with K-Fed for the guy, but I have no clue about the actress.

kanonymous said...

Guys . . . reread the blind. The celebutard is a FEMALE.

carolyn said...

Hey, Kanonymous . . . You're wrong.

Ent has defined the term "celebutard" (more than once) to be the MALE version of "celubutante" (always a female)... So we're definitely talking about a GUY here.

K-Fed sounds like a pretty good guess to me.

Eve Montana said...

DJ AM?

emstee22 said...

what about Brody Jenner? He has that new show coming out, although i don't think he is A list name recognition by a long shot.

K-Fed seems like it would work except for that he has that new girlfriend? not that a girlfriend has stopped people before, but it just makes me think its not him.

any ideas for the woman?

according to this list (http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/film/article5089354.ece) i got

rachel nichols
helena bonham carter
zoe saldana
malin akerman


as potentials but besides that i really have no idea.

Catherine said...

ohhh i love the dj am guess, i think you got it...

Uber*nought said...

Well the continuation of the sentence about the "celebutard" suggests it is a woman she is involved with.

Our celebutard has serious A+ name recognition right now. Oh, and she is considered a newlywed by any definition which makes this extra juicy, extra scandalous, and extra career threatening.

pinkleburr said...

i'm sure the celebutard is a man, and all the 'she' references hint back to the actress.

i'll agree with the DJ AM guess, since only death or angelina style goodwill can bring such great pr for a celebutard. and ent hated him anyway which is probably why it was a compromise to post this.

zoe saldana was a great guess for the actress, since she's gonna be in avatar and star trek.

was ali larter married? or she still engaged?

malin akerman's gonna be in watchmen and she married last year.

i don't know. picturing these actresses with dj am doesn't make them unworkable to me because no one seems to care about them enough.

janele said...

Calum Best.

cajun cutie said...

Enty I hope this will be one of the reveals on New Years. This one has caught my attention.

*jen ~ Fifty-Cent Head said...

When/where are the reveals? I'm new - sorry to sidetrack the comments here.

Elizabeth said...

Could the celebutard w/ A+ name recognition be Ashlee Simpson? The newlywed part fits and she's getting positive publicity from the baby... can't really see her dating a married woman though.

Taylor said...

Could it be Elizabeth Banks? She is in everything it seems. She was married in 2003, so I don't know if that's considered a newlywed.

sandman said...

another bi that doesn't make a bit of sense

Sis said...

Elizabeth Banks is an interesting guess...she just signed on as the new face for L'Oreal and she was terrific in Seabiscuit a few years back. For me she is one of those actresses who flies under the radar and is super talented so I hope this is not her.

Jamie's Girl said...

Enty didn't reread his BI, so that is why it reads awkward, which by the way, means Enty really wrote this one! hahah!

DJ AM may be one because of his death and people feeling for him. But I just can't think of anybody that we would be shocked about an affair. Except maybe a Kate Winslet.

fester said...

I think DJ AM may have put an end to much of the sympathy by suing the estates of the dead pilots.

As a sidebar: I can't think of any affair that would really be so scandalous as to end a career. Are people that easily shocked these days? Unless there's a twist besides the female being a newlywed.

The only guy I can think of getting good press lately internationally, is Guy Ritchie. He'd certainly come across less sympathetic if he was bonking a newlywed. But even though he's a crap director, I don't think that he fits the definition of celebutard.

Beth said...

Enty establishes that the actress is the married one, not the celebutard. The celebutard is going to lose his status by dating a married woman.

I find this BI really questionable. In this day and age, is any affair really THAT scandalous is Hollywood?

Amy Jelinek said...

Katherine Heigl??

Mealonesag said...

Stephanie March & Bobby FLAY!!!!

pomme said...

the very famous celebutard with good publicity could be hugh hefner( very famous,known for parties)!
the b- actress newlywed in some big movies of the year could be malin akerman (married since june 2007,plays in "the watchmen")!

City Councilman Doug said...

Male celebutard with A+ name recognition?

I'm going Michael Phelps.

A 'world of positive publicity from every corner of the earth'.

I say Phelps. But don't know who with.

Denis said...

Michael Phelps fits the clue perfectly, although didn't it just come out that he's dating some cocktail waitress from a strip club in Vegas? Seems like dating a newlywed would be a step up from that.

And as for the he/she thing, the celebutard is definitely male. The "she" definitely refers to the newlywed, which is plainly the married woman the celebutard is dating.

Lana said...

Fester: I re-read the item with Guy Richie in mind...I like it! I think it works, now to find out the female...

Angela said...

Celebutard = celebrity + debutante + retard. It can be male or female.

From what I understand of the B.I...

A A+ name recognition (right now) male celebutard who benefits from a ton of positive publicity has started dating a B- (going to A) list film actress who is newlywed. She has been and will be in some of the biggest movies of the year and we're supposed to recognize her face even if we don't

Sorry but I can't picture DJ AM here. This is the guy who fake-dated Mandy Moore. If he does such a thing for publicity purposes (without making a pass to the quite attractive Moore), this guy would curb his libido down with a married woman to stay in good light.

Michael Phelps isn't technically a celebutard. He's done some real stuff, which is different of just being famous.

The woman also cannot be Scarlett Johansson. You recognize her face but after staring for a long time at her bosom. Zoe Valdana isn't married.

I'm also curious about the actress who "has been, and is going to be in some of the biggest movies of the year". All the big movies have already opened for 2008, so these would be two different years.

If so... she could be Malin Akerman.

Married in June 2007.
Featured in The Heartbreak Kid (a semi-failure), 27 Dresses (a hit) and Watchmen (which can only turn out to be a big hit).
Another starring role in "Couples Retreat", a comedy written by Jon Favreau.

Angela said...

To pomme: I hadn't seen your message but we surely agree.

Hope said...

The way that I read this, it's about two women.

jw12 said...

I'm having a hard time reading this one.

Celebutard- is a newlywed with A+ recognition

Married B- flim actress on the cusp of A

Would Ellen DeGeneres be considered a celebutard?

jw12 said...

Celebutard doesn't always mean dude. Here's a blind from 11/21/2008.

#2, 3 & 4 - So in this one we have a musician. B+ list group, but our musician definitely has A list name recognition. Our musician has an ex although that status seems to change daily. The ex fancies herself as an actress, but really she is just a celebutard with more luck than Heather Mills. Well, our musician has never really believed a word that comes out of his ex's mouth, especially concerning one of her ex's and she has several high profile ones. Well, the musician was supposed to be recording, but when it got canceled he decided to go surprise his ex at her lunch appointment with her agent. Umm, when he got to the spot though, all he found was his ex and her very, very famous ex lip locked in a back booth of the restaurant. Shouting match followed, but lucky for our musician, nothing else ensued.

Carmen said...

JW12-

I'm with you on this one. A gay affair WOULD cause scandal AND there's no mention that one is a man. Good work!

Tea Lady said...

Kathryn Hahn a good guess but I don't think it's her because Enty said she'd be in some of the biggest movies of the year and Revolutionary Road is the only one I'm seeing at IMDB. I've got a similar problem with it being Elizabeth Banks.

Z said...

how about portia de rossi as the newlywed? she is going to be in the arrested development movie next year

mngddess said...

Enty can at least tell us if someone on the list guessed it correctly....

And Happy New Year Ent!!!!! ('Cause I'm either too early or too late with my wishes.)

Hope said...

It's definitely about two women. "She is considered a newlywed by any definition" - "any definition" to me would refer to a gay marriage. Ellen DeGeneres could fit the celebutard, although I would consider her more of a celebrity.

Beth said...

I think this is poorly written.

Oh, and she is considered a newlywed by any definition which makes this extra juicy, extra scandalous, and extra career threatening.

This is about the actress. Enty never says that celebutard is married. The person would have been listed as "a married celebutard." The marriage itself -- as opposed to a detail about the marriage -- wouldn't have been an afterthought.

becki626 said...

Was Ben Affleck not in all the magazines lately with a stern look on his face in some African country?
That's global. Wasn't Scarlett Johansen costarring with Ben in "He's Just Not That Into You"? Wonder if they had any scenes together...

Shel said...

The actress is married. That's been established. About the other: "Our celebutard has serious A+ name recognition right now. Oh, and she is considered a newlywed by any definition which makes this extra juicy, extra scandalous, and extra career threatening."

Enty wouldn't say the actress is married, then turn around and be that coy about it. They're both women, and both attached in some way, shape or form. If one were a man, this wouldn't be that juicy, scandalous, or career threatening. This pairing is probably WAY out of left field, too. It sounds as though at least one of them has always come across as straight as an arrow...

ms_wonderland said...

Celebutard - Samantha Ronson. She's (def a female + female affair) internationally known and has kudos for 'rescuing' LiLo. SR would loose the positive publicity if she cheated and caused a LL meltdown.

Portia de Rossi is a good guess for the married B- actress. Her 'ticket to Alist' is Ellen,and that would be damaged by an affair.

I really wanted the celebutard to be Sarah Palin, but the only positive international publicity she got was howls of laughter.

mabel said...

I guess the irony of your slamming Sarah Palin on a psuedo celeb gossip site is appropriately lost on you.

Jamie's Girl said...

actually, the Portia De Rossi guess would be scandalous, as they are supposed to be in love and married to each other. I don't know who the celebutard would be. Brandon Davis always comes to mind. He doesn't give a shit about anybody.

Kimberley said...

so, i've been reading this site since about may 2008 and this is the first time i've posted! i've got a feeling that this celebutard may be a woman! at first i didn't, but what about Paris Hilton? she's got all kinds of good publicity lately from the 'robbery' it makes since that this would be a woman to make it more scandalous!

Mooshki said...

Welcome to the comment party, Kimberley! :)

g said...

Okay this is going to sound crazy but this is what I am thinking:

B- film actress:
Elizabeth Banks
Movies this year:
Meet Dave
Zack and Mini Make a Porn
Definitely Maybe
W
(she is also married)

Celebutard (assuming it's a newlywed woman):
Ellen Degeneres ( Also, she just signed the Cover Girl contract making her more A list globally)
or
Scarlett Johansson
(Ryan made Definitely Maybe with Elizabeth Banks.. maybe sparks flew when they met :)LOL)

Kimberley said...

thanks for the welcome! it took a while to get the guts to post! my bf is getting pretty tired of me talking about my opinions of the bi's!

Emmanuelle Chantel said...

Celebutard= Michael Phelps

Ent always distinguishes between celebrities (actors, singers, etc) so the man in question must be neither.

I have no idea who the married, female actress is.

Kiersten said...

Where do we see the reveals?

Ava Verhaal said...

Dita Von Teese and Scarlett J.

Craig said...

Phelps is a great guess and the only person on the planet right now with A+ name recognition all over the place...plus he broke up a few weeks ago with that stripper he took home for Thanksgiving!

carolyn said...

Well, Enty is nothing if not INCONSISTENT! (But that's part of why we like the dude, isn't it? Imperfection is very lovable...) So Ent has called a female a "celebutard" once or twice, but a quick search shows that he uses the term to refer to a MALE about 96% of the time.

Ashamed as I am to admit it, I've been around since CDAN's EARLY days (Nov. 2006, so my memory goes back a ways... and I KNEW that he'd defined Celebutard as MALE at least once! I just found this in the Sept. 14, 2007 "Blind Item Reveals":

#2 This celebutard (the male version of celebutante)
with the prolific sperm has been trying to hide his relationship with this C/D list actress because her former boyfriend, a B list film star with A list name recognition has threatened to kick the crap out of the celebutard if he sees him with his ex. The c'tard acts tough but is scared out of his mind... A: Kevin Federline / Nicole Narain Colin Farrell.

As poorly written as it is, I really think we're wasting our time looking for 2 females for this BI.

pomme said...

To ava verhaal,it would be the dream of all men :dita vonteese and scarlett johnanson together!

Karmen said...

I'm a little bit late in the game to be jumping in on this one, but I am absolutely obsessed with BIs, so I thought I had to say something.

I just recently got interested in celebrity gossip, so I rarely can guess straight off the bat who blind items are, but I know who they're not.

Although I thought Portia as the B- film actress was a good choice, because of the "she is considered a newlywed by any definition" comment. However, this description doesn't apply to her: "she has been, and is going to be in some of the biggest movies of the year"

She hasn't been in any big movies recently, and she's only rumored for the Arrested Development movie on IMDb. It's not Portia, based on that clue. Besides, she's more known for her TV roles as opposed to film.

As for the celebutard, Michael Phelps lost A LOT of positive publicity when he was caught drunk driving in 2004 after the Athens Olympics. Granted, he became a god after the Bejing Olympics and undoubtedly has A+ positive name recognition throughout the world. However, dating a married woman is pale in comparison to jeopardizing people's lives while getting behind the wheel while drunk. If he can rebound from that incident with the law, his reputation can definitely survive dating a married woman.

Lori said...

I read this thinking the celebutard was Nicole Richie. She's been getting great publicity since having Harlow, and doing a lot of charity work. However I don't think she has a career that could be threatened or that anything she could do would be considered scandalous.

canadachick said...

just throwing it out there ....rachel nichols...she's starring in : G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra (2009) Star Trek (2009)
For Sale by Owner (2008)
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 (2008) .... Julia

was married in July 08....

Celebutard is DJ AM...
see here : http://justjared.buzznet.com/2008/12/24/dj-am-new-girlfriend/

looks like her ????

Stephen said...

Is there anyone who was recently named as a UN Goodwill Amb? That would definitely get you positive pub in every corner of the earth. It seems that I recall someone from a few weeks ago but I can't remember what I read.

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

OOOHHH Dita Von Teese and Scarlett J. would make a HOT couple and I am straight up hetero, but no bother, I think they would be so hot together and I would watch that ;)

Lisa said...

I'll bet a donut that for all the fuss this has caused, both parties are people we've ever heard of.

Idiot Watcher said...

As much as it pains me to admit she might be famous enough for a BI, much less someone on track to hit the A list, it probably is Rachel Nichols. Incidentally, I went to high school with her and she is mentally unstable and a complete tool, but that's for another item. She is, I gather, married to Scott Stuber, so an affair could ruin her career, in that he could see to it that she never works again. Not that her lack of talent won't do that anyway. And there is that picture of her holding hands with DJ AM, who fits the celebutard description perfectly. He really must be a 'tard of some variety to go down that path.

City Councilman Doug said...

Oooh. I had no idea about Phelps and Athens. Good little nugget there.

And Dita with Scarlett would make me hurl. Surely Miss von Teese has better taste than that low rent heifer?

Eline Constantine said...

Robert Pattison and Malin Akerman?

Anonymous said...

Idiot Watcher - I totally agree. No idea who the tard is but the other one has got to be Rachel Nichols. I know her as well and your description is spot on. A terrible, terrible person and actress. Good for Scott! Finally smartened up.

Anonymous said...

By the way, that is not her with DJ AM.
