Today's Blind Items

This former boy bander has begging his former group to go out on tour again because he has no money. Some bad investments and spending a ridiculous amount on toys and gambling has left him with no money. He doesn't want to have to declare bankruptcy because then everyone will find out about who is biggest creditors are and they are not a good list.

Gary Jonas

Nick Carter!!! This guy's such a goon. Guess he wasn't smart enough to realize he could have just taped a sex session with paris and made a couple thou.

Kelly said...

I wanted to say Nick Carter, but it looks like he's been doing some charity work lately. It probably is one of those 'nSync guys.

shakey said...

What about that little pipsqueak from 'NSYNC who was constantly talking about a reunion being in the works even though it wasn't? Can't remember his name - JC Chavez? The judge on America's Best Dance Crew?

Pookie said...

pls don't let it be nick lachey. *admits to owning a 98° cd*

Tessa said...

I vote Chris Kirkpatrick of nsync. He had a failed clothing line and parties all the time. He also did that stupid Man Band and if that doesn't smell of desperation, I don't know what does.

shazzzba said...

DIDN'T NICK LACHEY GET A TON OF $$$$ WHEN HE AND JESSICA SPLIT ?

DNfromMN said...

gotta be Lance.

Backstreet Boys are already touring (or just finished touring recently).

lutefisk,

Totally agree. This has to be Gary! I love Gary. He was the real star of that group. They aren't the same without him! I mean, if Gary had been in their movie, I might have gone this weekend and seen it and it might have made more money. (lol)

And if it's not Gary, I'm going to guess Chris Kirkpatrick.

Quintessential Southerner said...

what is the BI suggesting about the creditors? they are not a good list?

jax said...

QS- maybe gambling debts,escorts or drug dealers? the mob?

no clue and the effed up grammar doesn't help.

anomélie said...

does Limp Bizkit count as a boy band?

Podbaydoor said...

If this was a British rag, I would have totally picked Robbie Williams; chasing UFOs and spoiled Beverly Hills girlfriends will cost ya.

Quintessential Southerner said...

that's what i was thinking jax too, but a bankruptcy only notes 'legal' debt? or so i assume...

A Pimp Named DaveR said...

I have to think Lance Bass for this one. Remember, he was supposed to fly to the ISS as a "space tourist" on a Russian Soyuz capsule, but his financial support disappeared. Yet the Russians got enough money to keep him in training.

Russian mob, maybe?

On the other hand, this was seven years ago, and I don't think the Russian mob is that patient.

Jungle007 said...

Wait, wait.....

There's a GARY Jonas???

Sweet Mother Of God.

audieh_1 said...

A J Mclean.

Cooper's Mom said...

Totally Lance on this one.

Ms. said...

One of the Bay City Rollers?

that's MISTER long time lurker to you said...

ahem..(in my best Whitney scream...)
Bobbbaayyy!

(Bobby Brown for those who are wondering....)

equinox said...

I agree with Bobby Brown

lutefisk said...

Princess, I have to agree with the Chris guess--now that they aren't making anymore new Fairly Odd Parents I see his career has dried up.

lutefisk said...

Gary Jonas was a character Alec Baldwin played when the Jonas Brothers were on SNL.

Jungle007 said...

Oh riiiiiiiight.... I saw that episode of SNL. I forgot his name was Gary in that skit. I was more focused on how BAD those kids act.

Disgraceful.

I never thought of Bobby B. Good guess!

Sporky said...

That tiny hammerhead shark, JC Chasez.

Andrea said...

I doubt it's JC. He's notoriously cheap. He doesn't buy big toys, not even cars. And he's been working steadily since nsync ended.

Lance has been talking about a reunion for the past 2 years now. He's also been trying to sell his house for about that long.

It could be one of many other boy bands, although I don't know why any of them would think they could make money from touring. It's not like 98 Degrees or O-Town has a ton of fans just waiting around with baited breath for a reunion.

Sweater said...

This is totally Lance

From an interview with JC Chasez:

PW: What about rumors of an 'N Sync reunion tour, Lance Bass has been talking that up majorly!
JC: No. We haven't discussed anything like that. I don't know. Honestly, I can't speak for him or as to why he would say that but I know nothing about one.

Sporky said...

Wow Sweater! Smell the investigative skills on you! Well it probably is Lance.

Or maybe....Ricky Martin? He WAS with Menudo all those years ago, and he's got 2 more mouths to feed now.

Jayme said...

@Jax

I'm pretty sure drug dealers and the mob don't show up on the credit report. They tend to use a less legitimate method of recouping their losses.

Ms.Leigh said...

i doubt it's ricky since he's had a fairly successful solo career. if he needed money, he'd be better off touring alone.

it can't be the bsb or nkotb cuz they're already touring (thank GOD for nkotb! they're wonderful!)

nobody cares about 98 degrees. and new edition is still around i think, they just use a different name if i remember correctly. most of these groups have fairly popular solo artists from them.

that only leaves *nsync- justin is doing fine solo, jc has been working steadily, joey is sitting pretty from broadway and tv gigs.

that just leaves chris k and lance. and i know chris has party issues and reeks of desperation altho lance sending out rumors of a reunion reeks of desperation, too.

i call tie! yay, *nsync reunion!! :D LOL

Andrea said...

Ms.Leigh: If only they could ever in a million years convince Justin. I would so be there.

I don't think it's Chris though. He grew up extremely poor, he only owns one house, and he has a couple regular jobs in Orlando. I don't think he even has investments. He just sticks all his money in trusts for his sisters and lives off interest and royalties.

I am thinking that it is probably someone that has creditors against his public image. Lance is out as a gay man, so it's not like if his big creditors are porn that we'd be all "Oh how embarrassing" It's almost expected.

I also agree that it's got to be LEGAL creditors. What would embarrass a celebrity? I'm just thinking that it is someone who would be really embarrassed by their choices though I'm not sure who it could be. However, I think that if we knew who those creditors are we'd figure it out ...

Ed said...

It may not be lance because he did just do DWTS and probably wouldnt need the money though

However it could be 98 degrees (Im really trying to make this not Lance. Damn)

What about Westlife or Take that?

joo said...

Embarrassing legal creditors:

Casinos
Porn Companies
Plastic Surgeons

As to the answer, I'm not sure. I would've said Nick Carter, except for the fact that Backstreet Boys has been on tour recently.

Mia said...

My husband is a huge New Edition fan from back in the day (don't ask). Recently, like a few weeks ago, he told me he heard they were doing a reunion thing. I'm loving the Bobby guess.

xyz said...

Enty said "toys" so I am thinking sex toys. Let your imagination run wild with that one.

I go with Lance.

BlahFrickinBlah said...

It has to be Lance or Chris. You know both of them are praying to the Gods that Justin will agree to a reunion. The rest of the band would jump on it like a fat kid on a cupcake. I am leaning towards Chris though. He did that Man band shit and he also did that country music reality show. Both were epic fails. As sad as DWTS is it is better than the choices that Chris has made in the past couple of years.

cdn_photo_girl said...

Ed, Take That is touring in the UK--they released a cd late last year (same title as Britts Cd and 1 day apart) so it can't be them. I love the second coming of Take That (more than the first).

I am thinking Lance Bass

Andrea said...

What about someone from Color Me Badd? Boyz II Men? BBD? Jackson 5? Isn't one of the Jacksons always saying there's going to be a reunion any day now?

Ms.Leigh said...

i like your guesses andrea, but i think b2m is touring the state fair circuit (well, i saw a fairly recent photo that said that. wasn't it on here? anyone know?)

i do like the color me madd guess, too.

i'm just crossing my fingers that it's an nsync member. as much as i love them individually, maybe it'd turn justins cold, black heart and he'd change his mind about reuniting! hah

Andrea said...

Ms.Leigh, that's an excellent point! If we want Justin to come back, though, Lance isn't the way to go. He and Lance have been in an epic bitch fight since Lance's memoir came out.

JS said...

I was thinking NKOTB too and I don't know if the blind is worded to exclude them. There is a typo, I think, causing confusion. Is the first sentence "boy bander *was* begging -or- bander *has been* begging. If it is the first(*was*), then maybe it is one of the bands on tour now or with a tour planned already.

Princess said...

I know they aren't a boy band, but maybe this is Spinal Tap. They're in the photos today and they did just reunite! lol

S said...

The begging ... was it an obvious word choosing for 'Ain't to Proud to beg' ... not sure.

Jamie's Girl said...

Toys and gambling? Bottom line. If your Out-Money is less than your In-Money, you deserve it! I guess some big creditors are Las Vegas, and the gay-boy ranches.

bionic bunny! said...

i'm with ed, i hope it isn't lance. couldn't stand the boy band phenomena, but DD was a huge n'sync fan, and lance was my favorite.
still is, if i had to pick one.
