Ben Widdicombe Blind Item

Which well-known NYC style scribe messed up a TV pilot when he tried to perk up for the camera by doing a line of cocaine? Turns out the baggie of leftover party drugs in his sock drawer was ketamine, which had the opposite effect.

uuuuummmm...Tim Gunn? i don't know much about stlye stuff...maybe the 'what not to wear guy' who's name escapes me(but i know it will pop into my head as soon as i push 'publish comment'

Does Tim Gunn or that other guy write fashion articles/books? I think it's probably an NYC fashion journalist or something along those lines, not a t.v personality

Mrs.M5 said...

yeah, see, that's why i get lost. i'm a SAHM of 4 little kids in Washington state...not always up on the New York fashion scene...hahaha...now if there was a blind item about Dora the Explorer, i would be ALL over it!

BITE YOUR TONGUE!!! My beloved Tim Gunn would NEVER do such a thing! :)

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

Tim Gunn's "stick up ass" syndrome wouldn't allow that kind of tom foolery, I don't believe.

Mrs.M5 said...

yeah, i don't really think he would do such a thing, either

FYI Mrs.M5-you were thinking of Clinton Kelly ;)

wouldn't the equal amount of ketamine do more than make you a little drowsy???
not really that familiar with it, but heard it's damn powerful stuff.

Mrs.M5 said...

oooo, thanks Yellow Rose, i appreciate that, it would have driven me crazy...i guess i could have googled it! hahah

@bionicbunny!

If it was one line of ketamine? It would make you drunk-stumbly for about 40 minutes, then it would wear off, no big deal. More than one line of ketamine, well, you'd be disassociating from reality ... but still, 40-60 minutes tops.

Not that I speak from experience ... drugs are bad, kids! :)

My guess: Simon Doonan. Loooove his dishy books!

What about Carson Kressley? Found this on Wiki:

"In September 2008, Kressley shot a pilot for his own daytime talk show on Lifetime."

Maybe? Is he based in NYC?

The Special K diet!

Jill said...

And to answer my own question, according to Wiki, Carson does live in NYC.

Never watched any of his shows; does he seem like the cokey type?

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

Yes he sure does.

BinkyM said...

Carson is a good guess, but what does he write?

Hell nah, my man TG wouldn't do this crap. Carson maybe.

Carson is also a horse person - Ketamine is commonly used as a horse tranquelizer...

ALTalley?

Judi,
That was my 1st thought.

Majik said...

Dunno who it is, but his tripping out on Special K is on video somewhere and I WANNA SEE IT!!!!

I still love him and would lick his toilet clean for the chance to lick him.
