Ben Widdicombe Blind Item

Which messy tabloid favorite who thinks she's a rock-style icon (actually she just married shrewdly) is known for calling journalists in a pill-haze and ratting out her celebrity friends? She has some especially good stories about her famous pals The Shoplifter and also The Godmother Of Her Child.

This is obvs Courtney Love. The Shoplifter is Winona. Who's the Godmother? Gwyneth?

littlemanwhatnow -- they're talking about Kurt Cobain.

Apple said...

Courtney Love is a celebrity sycophant. She validates her life by collecting famous people. Her twiiter is a hodge podge of rattling off famous people.

I wonder if it is prompted by her bipolar disorder or the pills.

white lorelei said...

No, she's not married, but I think he's relating Cobain's icon status as the poster child for grunge as being the shrewd move insofar as it gave her some cachet as an icon herself.

Or something like that.

Sis said...

First one I thought was good ole Gwyneth herself, Winona and isn't Madonna a godmother to one of her kids? And isn't she also good friends with a few journalists but not the tabloid type as she likes to point out???

Catherine said...

How about Heather Locklear?

nancer said...

courtney love. i'd bet on it.

Miss said...

wow I got this one in the first sentence! woo hoo!

pomme said...

nice friend!! what a mediawhore!!!

Miss said...

oh I meant to say Courtney all the way.. I thought that was a given! Then again I am a NW kid brought up around the grunge scene.. these streets are filled with the ghosts of kurt and courtney tales...

Girl with a Curl said...

This may be out there, but I thought Nicole Ritchie, the Shoplifter friend as LiLo and the "godmother" as Paris.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Courtney. No ifs, ands, or buts.

littlemanwhatnow said...

kate hudson?

littlemanwhatnow said...

i firmly think it's C love.. i read just got married as in like right now... misread that...sorry

AnnMarie said...

Courtney. Aaaaand..."scene."

Mika said...

I love easy Blind items. Courtney love ftw

Mika said...

She recently spilled the beans about Pam Anderson's cash flow too. LoL too easy.

Kristen S. said...

I read the Blind as the person appears to have rock-n-roll caché on their own, but it was really just thier spouse that gave it to them.

I say Courtney Love. My first thought was Gwenyth, but she doesn't have ANY rock-n-roll caché at all, on her own, or attached to her spouse.

WBotW said...

Hate to break it to you guys but whatever else she maybe, C Love is absolutely a rock style icon. She was one of the originators of the kinderwhore look in addition to putting out one of the best albums of the 90s. Is she a mess? Yeah. But don't deny her one of the few claims to fame she actually deserves.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Except she stole the Kinderwhore look from the her ex-friends, the girls in Babes in Toyland, Kat Bjelland in particular.

Jillian S. said...

I first thought of Nicole Richie, but I guess C Love is most likely.

Jade, That Girl said...

haha @ AnnMarie.


...I am loving Widdicombe blinds---always so obvious! Yes!

jax said...

WBot, that was almost 20 years ago...what has she done besides rip babydoll dresses, not shower for 2 weeks and show off her cooch on stage?

oh ya, arrange to have her husband offed, squandered his estate and alinated her daughter....

Sorry if it weren't for her connection to Cobain, she'd be either dead or a distant memory of the 90s. That was only one decent album, rumoured to mostly written by Cobain himself.

wow, i really hate this murdering bitch. lol.

brendalove@gmail.com said...

Kurt Cobain wrote most of "Live Through This"....at least the music....as validated by the fact that she is unable to duplicate the feat.

ms snarky said...

it it weren't for Cobain, there would be no memory at all of CLove. She wouldn't have made even a smudge, let alone a mark. That said, I do love Doll Parts. Violet. sad that she claims to have written it but can't duplicate it.

ms snarky said...

@ brendalove
you beat me by seconds! hee.

Jamie's Girl said...

Nope, Courtney did marry Kurt Cobain, calculatedly, but shrewdly? I was thinking this was Gynneth, as we know she is a joke of a style icon, then Madonna and Winona. Honestly, if it was Courtney, he could have just posted it with Courtney's name.

Allison said...

I kind of see the Gwyneth guess, but she's not considered "messy." This totally fits with the Courtney Love guesses.

Majik said...

WBotW.....sorry, but no one would have even HEARD of the mess that is Courtney Love if she hadn't have stalked KC and basically bullied him into being with her. I wouldn't be at all surprised if she's the one that got him on the smack in the first place, and certainly wouldn't be surprised if she paid to have him killed. There, I said it.

Yes, the music was good...but "Live through This" sounds a helluva lot like Nevermind, stylistically speaking (Kurt even does backup vocals). Wonder why that would be? Hmmmm....

Yes, her look is definitely unique...but I wonder who she stole it from originally.

She's trash. Worse than that, she's nouveau riche trashe.

Majik said...

lol...I love how we all jumped all over CLove at the same time!

LauraM said...

C-Love

Katie said...

paris is not nicole richie's godmother, it's her little sister sophie

Caroline said...

Poor Kurt.

sunnyside1213 said...

Poor Francis.

Janepod said...

Totally C-Love. For those of you too young to remember, she was knocked up when Kurt married her. Tres shrewd.

shakey said...

WBotW - love that CD, too.

Did Billy Corrigan write Celebrity Skin and Malibu? I love those songs.

stiffkittens said...

Jax's comment FTW.

Murder does karma face so well, doesn't it C-Love?

star_grades said...

Sorry, but since when was Goopy known for calling journos in a pill haze?

Dijea said...

I though old Fish Sticks Paltrow immediately.
