Today's Blind Items

Unbelievably shocking. It is just an affair. Those things happen everyday, but this one is mind blowing. Married. Child(ren). Academy Award Nominee/Winner. Actress. Permanently B list. Probably won't ever move up or down from that position. She is having an affair with one of her trainers. She has a couple. He comes to her place when her husband is not around. No hotels, no sneaking around. Only at her place. It has been going on for almost 9 months.

julia roberts, just b/c i don't like her and i think she'd really do something like this.

Quintessential Southerner said...

i'm such a pain, but why won't she ever move up or down from that position... apart of a legendary hollywood family?

btw, lol, no clue on the guess...

ea73 said...

Oh, Dame Judi Dench, you minx!
Ok, I'll really guess Catherine Zeta Jones for the same reasons Pookie gives above.

Mooshki said...

Julianne Moore?

Christine said...

This one is killing me!!!! Umm. .. mindblowing. . . who would I never think was having an affair? Julianne Moore? Frances McDormand? Holly Hunter? Mary Steenburgen? Melanie Griffith? Annette Bening?

pomme said...

catherine zeta jones? married,children ,nominated/winner and Blist!

AnonMom said...

Julianne Moore would be mindblowing, IMO. Julia Roberts, i could see that happening.

Miss X said...

So, how could you be B list if you won an Oscar? It must only be a nominee and only for a supporting role.

Goodgrief said...

Goopy Gwyneth!!

ms_wonderland said...

I thought Oscar winners were always A list? Perhaps she's a Best Supporting nominee?

Julia Roberts is A list and CZJ probably is as well. Is unbelivably shocking a verbal clue, because a Hollywood actress having an affair is ordinary?

palealebrew10 said...

I thought there was another blind itema while back where Julia was revealed to be cheating on Danny with another actor or something?

I'll go with Catherine ZJ

Anky said...

Geena Davis

Karmen said...

Julia Roberts is A list. She can open a movie by herself.

Miss X - Enty believes that awards have nothing to do with list rankings. It's all about how much $ you can pull at the box office with just your name. Hence why Julia Roberts is A list.

I like the CZJ guess, but would it really be that shocking if she were cheating on her carcass of a husband?

Rocket Queen said...

Does this mean nominated and winner?
I think Julia qualifies as A list, which is a damn shame because I would love this to be her.

Rocket Queen said...

Another thought - Enty saw fit to mention she has "a couple" trainers, and my first thought was that it can't be Goopy because she has that female trainer she's working with (and he featured the story about the videos they're making)...unless it's a hint she has another one?

Ice Angel said...

Julia Roberts is A list all day.

I would be shocked if this were someone like Julianne Moore or Frances McDormand-married to a Coen brother and starred in 6 of his movies. That would be shocking.

palealebrew10 said...

I'm scratching my CZJ guess b/c she's probably A list and it wouldn't really shock me at all. It doesn't mention husband's profession and I think the "other trainers" is a hint. Gwynnie ftw

captivagrl said...

Julianne Moore

captivagrl said...

or, Joan Cusack?

d said...

Interesting that he says "her place", instead of "their place". Maybe an actress that keeps a separate abode from her husband?

Or, how about this? It's shocking because it's a woman married to a woman. How about Portia De Rossi? She and Ellen are legally married.

Bottoms_Up said...

Not sure why, but the first name that popped into my head was Jennifer Connelly.

d said...

oh, shoot, Portia wasn't nominated for an Academy award. Maybe another female couple?

Ice Angel said...

He comes to her place when her husband is not around.

maggiemei said...

I like the CZJ guess, because of her notorious demands for her husband not to cheat. There is supposedly a no cheating clause written in the prenup.

So it would be ironic if she were the one to stray.

And she is B list- won't go down because of family connections, and won't go up cause women don't as they age.

And i think the couple trainers remark is a clue that she is very fit. And CZJ is very proud of her figure, and how hard she works for it.

NYC2008 said...

Pookie-I hate Julia Roberts & her loud laugh

Ice Angel said...

Julianne Moore starred in Nine Months. It's her and yes, shocking. She seems to have more class than that!

L1 said...

Meryl Streep would be shocking.

So would Helen Mirren.

Marisa said...

Gwyneth- Tracy Anderson can't be her only trainer. She's too high-maintenance and Tracy owns a business- she wouldn't have time to be available for Gwyneth 7 days/week.

AnnMarie said...

How about Melanie Griffith?
She was nominated for Working Girl.
May be B list because of her mom and her marriage.
Shocking because, Jesus, would YOU cheat on Antonion Banderas?
Especially when you getting him in the FIRST place was a miracle from Baby Jesus??

captivagrl said...

still thinking Joan Cusack...

c said...

Marcia Gay Harden?

shazzzba said...

CZJ ...I DON'T THINK SHE'S A LIST...BUT IT WOULD BE FUNNY IF IT WAS HER, REMEMBER THE PRE-NUP...

Tax Lawyer said...

Am I misreading this? How can an "Academy Award Nominee/Winner" be "Permanently B list"?

Julia said...

I've only posted a few times because I'm still pretty new to this, but I don't get why Julianne Moore would be so shocking. Is she known to have a great marriage?
Was Jennifer Garner ever nominated, or was that an Emmy?

AnnMarie said...

Tax Lawyer, maybe he thinks they're past their prime for opening a movie...and it's been put out there that Enty uses opening-a-movie ability as the defining factor in A-, B- or C-list grading.

Julia said...

Susan Sarandon?

lutefisk said...

I agree that the mind blowing has to relate to someone that we would totally not expect--the CZJ guess is a good one, because of the concern about the old guy cheating on her.
Too bad we can't make Jennifer Garner
work, & tie in Affleck to it!

genesis said...

Idk why but I thought of Kate Winslet, she doesn't have tho does she? I hope I'm ridiculously wrong.

genesis said...

doesnt have trainers*

califblondy said...

Okay, going with first thought that popped into my head, Felicity Huffman. Wasn't she nominated for an Oscar for Transamerica? She and hubby seem so lovey-dovey, so it'd be shocking to me.

Tax Lawyer said...

On the theory that the actress's picture is in today's Random Photos, I'm going with Glenn Close, a five-time Academy Award nominee although never a winner, on the theory that it's "unbelievably shocking" because of her performance in Fatal Attraction. Although Rita Wilson would definitely take the "unbelievably shocking" prize, I think the Academy Award Nominee/Winner reference excludes her. (Doggone it, though, because that would definitely be shocking!!)

ihpguy said...

The End of the Affair: It is just an affair
Nine Months almost 9 months
Children of Men Child(ren)

Julianne Moore

Bettie said...

Ah, but Rita was nominated for an Academy Award as a Producer! Enty doesn't say she was nominated for acting. That would be shocking if it was her!

bookjacket said...

I'm with Ann Marie on the Melanie Griffith guess. Unlikely she'll ever make a huge hit but she's permanent B list--hollywood royalty by birth, multiple marriages, a few famous roles and her place in history as the very first celeb to hilariously over-inflate her lips.
Plus I like Ann Marie's rationale.

Grace said...

I too first thought of Julianne Moore. But the "shocking" aspect makes me think of someone we all assume is Mrs. Family and very moral.

Hmm...

palealebrew10 said...

I just can't really think of anyone I'd find this too shocking about. Julianne Moore is a good guess, it's just..would anyone really care enough to feel "shocked"? Just me?

nancer said...

melanie griffith would be pretty shocking just because they give off that 'perfect marriage' image. i'd consider her B list because she's mutilated her face and you hardly ever see her anymore but she'll always be around.

meryl streep is the ultimate A list, so is julia. i consider glen close A list too.

Em said...

Annette Bening. They have lots of kids together and everyone would expect her husband to cheat, instead of her.

Rocket Queen said...

ihp guy - you've convinced me. Good work.

Anotheramy said...

Julianne Moore, Melanie Griffith, Joan Cuzak, CZJ... No shock there. They're strong young-ish women who go after what they want. Meryl Streep is a possibility, as are any of the middle aged distinguished women. If I didn't think that Tom and Katie split ages ago, I would be shocked by her, shes so well controlled.

Tax Lawyer said...

Query: Why the parentheses in Child(ren)? I did a quick check and found Julianne Moore has only been married once (in 2003) and has two biological children attributable to that marriage. Melanie Griffith has three biological children, one from each of her three marriages. Glenn Close, who has also been married three times, has one biological child and three stepchildren. To the best that I can determine it, all of the these women's biological children are living. (Just for fun, I added Rita Wilson to the mix as well. One marriage to Tom Hanks in 1988 and two biological children.) It seems like Julianne and Rita would both have "Children" since both have more than one living biological child attributable to their marriages. I think Melanie (who has multiple children, but only one with current husband Antonio) and Glenn (who has only one biological child, but multiple children if you could the stepchildren) look more likely. Since Melanie is the only Academy Award winner, I'm now leaning a little more towards Melanie even though her picture's not in today's Random Photos.

Idiot Watcher said...

I think it's someone very pregnant. The shocking part is that the baby is the trainer's, not the husband's. That's the big deal about the "almost nine months" AND why he went with child(ren)...since there's not quite more than one child...yet. Who is VERY pregnant, like 8 or more months along?

Terrance said...

It would not be shocking if it was Rita Wilson. She and Tom were fooling around when he was with his first wife.

ms_goddess said...

I like Ice Angel's guess (Frances McDormand - married, child(ren), Oscar winner once, nominated for several others)

I see the tie-ins for Julianne Moore

All that being said, the first name that popped into my head was Diane Lane (nominated for an Oscar for playing an adulterous wife)

BTW - Tax Lawyer, Melanie Griffith is not an Oscar winner - she was nominated for Working Girl, but lost to Jodie Foster - good rationale though :-)

Mooshki said...

Enty uses "child(ren)" to keep from making the answer too easy. It means they either have one child, or more than one child.

kanonymous said...

Tax Lawyer, why are you making it a point to indicate that they are biological children. It just says they have "child(ren)." It really doesn't matter whether they are through biology or adoption.

kanonymous said...

"Ah, but Rita was nominated for an Academy Award as a Producer! Enty doesn't say she was nominated for acting. That would be shocking if it was her!"

Rita Wilson is not shocking. There has been all kinds of gossip about their marriage and affairs.

mygeorgie said...

Idiot Watcher: Awesome argument. I think you are right about the preggo angle!

Otherwise, I was thinking Sandra Bullock. She is a fan fav, has a rep for being devoted to hubby & not a typical Hollywood twat. The "Going on for almost 9 months" might coencide with Jesse's taping of Celebrity Apprentice?

Siren said...

Felicity Huffman. Both she and her husband, William H. Macy, are regular triathlon participants. She probably has a trainer for each sport in the triathlon.

AnnMarie said...

Idiot Watcher,
Fascinating possibility!!!!! Good thinking!

Diana said...

Gwyneth Paltrow,duh!

Tax Lawyer said...

Good point, kanonymous! In trying to think through Enty's use of "(ren)" I was simply trying to envision why the multiple appeared to be in question. I wondered, for example, whether this was because there was only one child attributable to the existing marriage (i.e., in the case of Melanie Griffith) but more children in the picture somehow? Or perhaps the actress only had one child herself, but had multiple children if stepchildren were considered (i.e., Glenn Close)? While the handful of actresses I happened to consider do not appear to have adopted children (hence my description of them as biological children), had they done so, I can assure that I most certainly would not have drawn a distinction between them and any biological children. Upon reflection, I think Mooshki may be right and that Enty did not intend the "(ren)" to be a clue at all, but rather it was simply a device to obfuscate the actress's identity a bit. Although, as Idiot Watcher points out, it is certainly intriguing when combined with the reference to nine months!

sara said...

I hate it, but the Felicity Huffman guess is pretty good.

Also I could definitely see CZJ having multiple trainers in Bermuda. She plays golf a lot - so golf pro. Could have tennis, swim, pilates, etc.

Jamie's Girl said...

CZJ is not B List, she is definitely A. She has won an Academy Award people, so lets move on. Plus, she would not be shocking, as who would fool around on Grandpa plasticsurgiscare?

I was thinking someone like Rita Wilson as she is permanently B List, so is Melanie Griffith.

ahdaboom said...

mira sorvino. she announced that she is expecting #3 about 6 weeks ago. already has a bump.

SDgirl said...

what about rita wilson?

Jamie's Girl said...

Also, Felicity Huffman is not shocking. Her husband is a loser pervert, and we expect her to dump him. Can't believe it would be Julianne Moore, but it appears to be from the clues. Also, I happen to love Melanie Griffith, but she would never be unfaithful to Antonio. I don't believe that in a million years.

Fuck Obama said...

I am very sorry to say this, particularly since the entire situation has fucked over a dear friend of mine, but the answer is Michelle Pffeifer.

Hope said...

I'd be a little surprised about some of the other actresses mentioned but the only unbelievably shocking actress would be Melanie Griffith. She's very very possessive of Antonio. People wonder why he's even still with her and from what I've heard, she's threatened to kill herself if he leaves and he doesn't want that responsibility. His name is even tatooed on her arm.

Jillian S. said...

Marlee Matlin

ahdaboom said...

michelle pffeifer hasn't won an academy award though.

kariodi said...

William H. Macy is a loser pervert? Wow. Michelle Pffeifer has been nominated for an Academy Award three times.

Cooper's Mom said...

I definietly think this one is Gwyneth! jsut has to be... sorry for the typos, am having a wee drink or two :)

linnea said...

yeah, why are you calling william h macy that? I like him!

*girl said...

Michelle Pfeiffer can open a movie. I'm going to call her A-list, or at least that she was A-list at some time.

kanonymous said...

Sandra Bullock has never been nominated for an oscar and she has no children. So I highly doubt this is her.

kanonymous said...

*girl,

It doesn't matter if she was A-list at some time. Enty doesn't say that the actress was never A-list, just that she is now permanently B-list.

merrick said...

Demi Moore Willis Kutcher .. would be shocking cause she robbed the cradle when she married asshton

kanonymous said...

kanonymous said...

It's not Demi. She does not have children with Ashton.

kanonymous said...

This CANNOT be Gwyneth. The blind says it's shocking. There have been reports of Gwyneth and her husband breaking up for a year. There have even been reports of her having affairs even just a few months ago. Come on, use some common sense. Must be the "wee drink or two."

merrick said...

But she does have children and Ashton is their step dad, as they are always saying

Jungle007 said...

kanonymous, it never said anything about the kids belonging to her husband. Clearly says: Married. Child(ren). That could mean from a past marriage too.

Permanantly B list does mean she has always been B list. "Permanent" kinda cinches it. If she used to be A list, Enty would have said "once was A list, now stuck at B", or something along those lines.

Really, make a guess yourself if you care so much instead of just trying to justify why everyone else is wrong (in a rude fucking way to boot)

Anyways I'm gonna guess Kidman, just cuz I don't think I noticed anyone else nominate her. kanon? Care to tell me I'm wrong and why???
:D

Workshy said...

Kate Winslet. Child = her son with Sam Mendes. "(ren)" refers to her daughter with her ex. Easy peasy. She spends a lot of time in interviews harping on about never working out and only uses Pilates videos, etc. Surely to throw us off the scent of the personal trainer thing?

Cathy said...

what about Jennifer Garner

ihpguy said...

I immediately thought of Felicity Huffmann. However,why would ENTY describe her as permanently B-list. I think not. Inside info, I have a spy on the street where they live. Bill and Flicka each have their own trainers. They sometimes run together; all four of them, dontcha know?

ihpguy said...

Jennifer Garner has never been nominated for an Academy Award, let alone win one. The closest I think one would ever come to her is if she takes Ben Affleck's(there you all go) and does something unspeakable with it...

It's just me! said...

Why has no one guessed Angela Bassett?

Leah said...

Michelle Pffeifer has an adopted daughter from before she was married, and a son with her husband.
I would find her shocking.
Any other proof?


Jaime's Girl-
I must have missed something with Bill Macy?
What's behind your hate-on?

shakey said...

"Bill and Flicka" - love you, ihp guy! You had me with Julianne Moore, then Idiot Watcher comes along and makes a valid point - but who's pregnant right now? Michelle Pfeiffer - wasn't there some sort of "scandal" years ago about her husband not accompanying her on red carpets, or something to that effect? That wouldn't suprise me. She could be having an affair, but it doesn't strike me as this blind. Kate Winslet is A or A+.

Demi Moore - shocking because she's constantly on twitter twittering about how much she loves her husband, and even has the user name of mrskutcher.

So, I'll go with either Julianne or Demi.

J said...

Kate Winslet is so A-list, its not even funny

mazemerizing said...

I think Enty should keep this on the side of his site instead of that meth photo of Ben Affleck.

http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/search/label/A-D%20list

It's Enty's A list, not ours. I'm not sure Michelle Pfeiffer was ever able to really "open" a film, so that's why he may call her B List and it would be a big surprise if she cheated on her husband, so I'm going with her. Although I'd love it to be Julia Roberts, but she will probably always be A list. Darn it. Also Felicity Huffman would be a big surprise, but I love her husband, so I hope not.

Kristen S. said...

I gotta go with one of Christine's names. I would be BOWLED OVER if Frances McDormand was having an affair.

Impertinent Vixen said...

Maybe "shocking" is a clue and not what our reaction might be. In addition to the "9 months" and "end of the affair" clues, Julianne Moore played Electra in the movie assassins. Long shot, I guess, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

The other names mentioned, Julia Roberts, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, Catherine Zeta Jones, are all super A list.

Michelle Pfeiffer is also a good guess, as is Annette Benning.

sassafrass said...

Julianne Moore. the affair and 9 months stick out big time.

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

haven'r read the guesses yet but Gweneth Paltrow?

Champaggles said...

I'm on the Rita Wilson bandwagon for his one. Or Speilberg's wife. Can't think of her name. Both husbands may be A-list but their wifes not so much.

They would be beyond shocking.

Goodgrief said...

First off I think it has to be someone we care enough about to be shocked. Maybe someone who is always saying what a wonderful marriage they have. Also if the 9 month clue means they might be pregnant then the person has to be young enough. Meryl Streep, Michelle Pfeiffer and Melanie Griffith are all over 50. Julianne Moore is 48, but since she had the movie 9 months it could still be her. I just don't know if anyone cares about her enough anymore to be shocked. I think Julia Roberts would be shocking, but she is def A-list.

Craig said...

I thought of Gwynnie, only because she has trainers coming and going from her house seemingly 24-7 and her hubby is always on the road....

bookjacket said...

Regular readers know Enty is fascinated with the Banderas clan and the Melanie/Don Johnson offspring, so it stands to reason he's more interested in her than most of you are, and be more likely to be shocked if shes cheating on Antonio. Also maybe nine mos is simply how long shes been cheating.

kanonymous said...

Does Speilberg's wife have an oscar/nomination?

kanonymous said...

Why do you guys keep guessing Demi Moore? Considering that she does NOT have children with her husband and has NEVER been nominated for an oscar?

IT'S NOT DEMI MOORE!!!!!!!

J. Noble Daggett said...

Jennifer Connelly won the Oscar for A Beautiful Mind ("mind-blowing") and is either hyper-fit or has an eating problem. Is married and at least one child.

kanonymous said...

"Anyways I'm gonna guess Kidman, just cuz I don't think I noticed anyone else nominate her. kanon? Care to tell me I'm wrong and why???"

Yes. Kidman is A List and has been for a long time.

Also, I suggest you look up the word "permanent" in the dictionary. It means now and forever, not now, forever, and before.

Mr. Brightside said...

Are you gonna reveal this one? I don't think so. Not if it's so shocking.

kanonymous said...

"Really, make a guess yourself if you care so much instead of just trying to justify why everyone else is wrong"

I'm trying to eliminate people. That makes it easier to guess the correct answer to the blind.

Rocket Queen said...

kanon - you are seriously being a jerk.
It doesn't say anywhere that the child(ren) are the husband and wife's together. You are making an assumption and yelling at someone for it.

kanonymous said...

"It doesn't say anywhere that the child(ren) are the husband and wife's together. You are making an assumption and yelling at someone for it."

I'm not yelling at anyone. I may have made an unfair assumption, which I welcome anyone to challenge/correct me on (as you have), but that doesn't make me a jerk. And I haven't resorted to name calling.

kanonymous said...

Here are some women that ahve not been brought up yet, all of whom have children and an academy award/nomination:
Kathleen Quinlan, Rachel Griffiths (who is pregnant), Emma Thompson (Not sure if she's A- or B-list), Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Sigourney Weaver, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Amy Madigan, Christine Lahti, Lena Olin, Alfre Woodard

ihpguy said...

Julianne and husband Bart Freundlich have been together twelve years and have two child(ren)together. Live in NYC and never hear a thing about them, living under the radar. As opposed the SJP and Matthew for instance. I don't think she has ever been considered A-list. Even with her Oscar noms. However, because of the Oscar noms and other awards, she probably will always be at the B-level. I just cannot see her clawing and grabbing at straws to keep from dropping below that b-level. She is just to good of a body of work. A Sally Kirkland she aint.

Is, was and forever moore(sic) Flicka B-list? Get real people. Stage definite yes, TV lucky for the DH role, film work sporadic, helloooo??

ihpguy said...

KANON -You so crazy...
Quinlan, Baptiste, Griffiths, Mastrantonio, Olin are B-list in what galaxy. What are you smokin?

Anonymous said...

katie holmes

kanonymous said...

Do you think they're A-list? C-list?

ms snarky said...

re Tom Hanks -

if the Tom Hanks cheating rumors are true, why would it be shocking for this blind to be Rita? But, alas, it cannot be. I don't think Rita has ever been close enough to an Oscar to even sniff its feet. (tom's noms/wins don't count.)

Allison said...

I first thought Tom Hanks' wife Rita Wilson for some reason. The academy award winner could be reffering to him. And I can't really think of anything she has been in besides those Lifetime channel type movies.

star_grades said...

Idiot Watcher - That was my first thought when I read the blind too. I think that's why is so shocking.

Although, if that's not the way it's meant to be read then I nominate Kidman. I think she is permanent B-List, plus she would have different trainers for all the places she lives throughout the year. Nashville, LA, Australia etc.

sauvage said...

I'm saying Cate Blanchett, because nobody has guessed her so far. Now THAT would be shocking, don't you think?

DivineJoy said...

Cate B, good guess.

Starr said...

Re: Jennifer Connelly - "A Beautiful Mind" (mind blowing) and "Little Children" (Child(ren)).
