Today's Blind Items - 80's & 90's Vintage

So, for today I thought we would shoot back in time just a little. Not going to go back to Old Hollywood. We are just going back to those carefree days of the late 80's and early 90's. This A list female entertainer has had an amazing life. She has done just about everything possible in the entertainment world and is one of the most influential entertainers ever. Back in the day, our A lister had just gone through a very messy divorce. But, our actress had needs and loved, loved trolling the Lower East Side of Manhattan for Hispanic guys in her chauffeured driven limo. On one of her forays she found a 17 year old Hispanic guy and took him back to her place where she kept him for a few days until she grew tired of him. Well, it turns out that she gave this teenage boy the gift that keeps on giving. The Herp. Yep. Well, a few months later, our A lister was trolling the same neighborhood and people from the teenager's family recognized the car and before anyone could do anything all of his family pelted her car with trash from their garbage cans. Seems appropriate.

Madonna

Chatty said...

Totally, silenttype. After Sean Penn?

West End Girl said...

Madge and her clapped out vadge?

rtsew said...

Liz?

Craig said...

I had heard this story about Madonna years ago....

nichole said...

He says "our actress" though - would you use actress to describe Madonna? I know she's been in movies, but I wouldn't label her an actress. Otherwise I am on board with that guess.

Ice Angel said...

Whitney?

jax said...

the hispanic guys sealed the deal for me. Madonna likes her latinos.

quick! someone look up her Sex Book and see if we have any herp sightings!

jax said...

nichole- i thought that too until he wrote 'one of the most influential entertainers in the world'

Mooshki said...

Ugh.

Nichole, maybe he was using "actress" as a joke? :)

MontanaMarriott said...

This is an old BI about Madonna, but why Enty stated Actress is lost on me, unless he is tricking us into saying Cher.

nancer said...

maybe she was making a movie at the time? anyway, he calls her 'entertainer' twice so i'm still thinking madonna.

Karmen said...

Whitney Houston got divorced in 2007.

This seems too easy, but I'll go with Madonna.

17? Isn't that statutory rape? Wouldn't put it past her, though.

Lioness70 said...

Got to be Madonna. I'm terrible at these things, but if I get this one right, I'll be a happy gal.

Cheryl said...

Ah yes, the Lower East Side Latino phase, followed by the I like girls (but not really) phase and the professional athlete phase. Madonna all the way.

Karmen said...

Wait, nevermind. NY law states this: Four years in prison for Third-degree rape for anyone age 21 or older to have sexual intercourse with someone under age 17.

Regardless, ick.

Pookie said...

betty white? KIDDING.

i so want to jump on the madonna train, but the "actress" clue just doesn't fit her. hmm.

i think montana may be onto something...i go w/ cher.

LauraM said...

WOW...

I'd say Madonna, but Cher is a good guess too. Heck, I wouldn't doubt it, if they both did this and enty is summarizing it into one person, hehe

faithy said...

I was going to say Bette Midler or Cher.

Karmen said...

Cher got divorced in 1979 from Gregg Allman. Not her.

Madonna was Eva Peron and did a half-decent job with it.

Madonna FTW.

JoAnn said...

This one doesn't sound real to me. I don't know.

JoAnn said...

This one doesn't sound real to me. I don't know.

Karmen said...

Bette Midler has never been divorced.

Ice Angel said...

Shoot back in time....turn back time....I'm going with Cher...

Cheryl said...

Damn Karmen! Your wiki-fu is faster than mine.

This is oldish info as I've heard it before except for the herp part.

califblondy said...

Liza with a Z? She was the first one I thought of.

Sonia said...

Not sure why, but Elizabeth Taylor popped into my mind. She was divorced from John Warner in the 80's and that Larry something-or-other in the 90's. But I don't know if she lived on the East coast for any length of time.

Karmen said...

Liza Minnelli did get divorced in 1992, but I'm still going with Madonna for this one.

@ Cheryl - Haha, thanks. Wikifu. love it. I do wikipedia mostly everything, IMDb is my secret weapon for BIs.

Karmen said...

Elizabeth Taylor divorced John Warner in 1982. This BI takes place in late 80s - early 90s.

Dude, Elizabeth Taylor's had 8 husbands. That's serial polygamy, if I've ever seen it. Sheeeeeeee-it.

Taylor said...

Madge also gave birth by cesarean, which could be because of the herp.

jw12 said...

I have heard this before about Madonna. I think it was either from Dennis Rodman or Jose Canseco.

A Pimp Named DaveR said...

This is absolutely Madonna. I've heard the stories of her trolling the LES for Hispanic beefcake many times.

rtsew said...

Liz married Larry Fortensky in 1991 but divorced in 1996 according to Wiki. Back to the drawing board.

Maybe it is Liza. She divorced Mark Gero in 1992. Didn't her most recent ex claim she gave him the herp?

rtsew said...

David Gest was her last hubby. Maybe she sought out the latino boys because most of her husbands were gay? Didn't Judy Garland marry gay men as well? Beards par excellence.

shazzzba said...

REMEMBER MADONNA'S FIRST MOVIE...EVERYONE THOUGHT SHE WOULD HAVE A GREAT FILM CAREER ...I THINK THIS IS HER TOO...

procrastination101 said...

madonna cause she loves latino men and was married to sean penn in the late 80s.

Harriet Hellfire said...

I instantly thought of Barbara Streisand *LOL*

Cheryl said...

Madonna did win the Golden Globe for Evita. Wore the tight black Versace gown just a few weeks after giving birth to Lourdes. My sister is a HUGE Madonna fan from way back so I remember this crap.

WBotW said...

Definitely Madonna

bionic bunny! said...

i first thought either liz or liza. because the only thing madonna has EVER "influenced" me to do is either laugh or throw up.

also, statutory rape laws have evolved over the years. and a young man would NEVER have persued it back then.

Ayesha said...

Cher was my guess until I got to the "trolling the LES for young Latinos". That part is totally Madonna.

Although who's to say Cher doesn't like them, too?

Madonna moved two blocks away from me. Still haven't seen her...

califblondy said...

Ya, both Liza and Judy married gay guys. I think Liza's latest ex claimed to have caught herpes from her just to try and prove they really had sex. I'm still not buying it. Wasn't Judy's Father gay and Liza's father, Vincente was gay or bi?

What makes me think it's NOT Madonna is the way Ent has written almost glowingly about the herp-spreader. I mean it could very well be Madonna, but I think Enty would have been more snarky with the description.

Maybe he's already drunk today and just in a generous mood?

jw12 said...

ripped from a comment section:

From page 90 of The I Hate Madonna Handbook by Ilene Rosenzweig, published by St. Martin's Press, New York: According to several sources, Madonna often cruised Manhattan's Lower East Side in her limo, picking up young Latino men and having her way with them. Madonna intimate Erica Bell has described these joy rides by saying, "You could go down to Avenue D and find dozens of guys who'll tell you they were picked up by Madonna. And they'd be telling the truth." Bell remembered riding with Madonna and "picking up two or three at a time." Sometimes she'd be satisfied with just a kiss, "but if she really liked the kid, she'd just rip off his clothes and do whatever she wanted with him while we drove around New York." According to Mark Kamins, Madonna sometimes brought the destitute boys home to her luxurious apartment on the Upper West Side. "She ran a Puerto Rican stud farm up there," he said. Wasn't there any risk the boys would tell someone about the experiences after she had abandoned them? "These were just banji boys, downtown kids," Johnny Dynell, a close-hand observer, has said. "Madonna was smart. She knew nobody would believe them." ...

Barton Fink said...

According to one of those trash biographies that came out in the early nineties, Madonna used to drive around in New York City and pick up boys to fuck her. Then she would drop most of them off. And she went to Club Nine, where the "men measured up." But he could have gotten herpes from someone else -- a guy that would fuck Madonna would pretty much fuck anything, no?

Ms Cool said...

I'm surprised this is a blind. I'm terrible at these things and just needed the clues 80's, messy divorce, and Hispanic. Madonna.

nancer said...

liz taylor is not an 'entertainer.' all she's done is act and do charity shit. not her. give it up. it's madonna!

i'd also suggest madonna STILL 'picks up guys to fuck her.' look at that guy she's with now.

mngddess said...

Gimme an "M"....

OR

Gimmee a "C"...

helenaonwheels said...

Absolutely Madonna.

GoddessNow said...

This sounds like Madonna. I can't comment on the herpes because idk, however there are infamous tales pre and post fame)that are beyond scandal. If her husband assaulted her in numerous ways, tied her to a chair, while ranting for hours, and God know what, if this isn't considered a mess? What is? She is actually quoted as to always knowing she would have a Hispanic/Latino as the father of her child. IMO, I don't think Madonna has stopped trolling. She just trolls down differt streets. I recently saw a pic of her, Kayne and Amber Rose (Met Costume). I said to myself, "A picture paints a thousand words.."

Judi said...

And Cher has never been a NYC gal. madonna.

sunnyside1213 said...

Judi, I was going to say the same thing. This has to vadge.

Jenny S said...

Melanie Griffith?

zandra said...

This has to be Madonna. It's a perfect fit. Divorce from Sean Penn, her love of latin men, she fits the career parameters and that's the time frame when she was at the peak of her career, plus she was based out of NYC.

She's darling for not having protected sex. But it is a funny story that the family trashed her. They could have made some money had they sold her out to page six.

So does that mean that Sean Penn has the herp too? Guy? A cast of 1000's? Plague carrier.

monalisa999 said...

damn. someone beat me to it. it was madonna. i also saw a bio on her where one guy said he was in the hospital and she went into his room before heart surgery or something, and made him sign a contract. i'll have to look up the details, but i thought, jeez, people can't be better than that? what was she looking for, his sig in blood?

monalisa999 said...

God, i just realized knowing that make me vintage, too.

Val said...

The 'actress' label is a kindness, because she had done Shanghai Surprise in 1986 & it was pretty bad.

monalisa999 said...

oh, and you know what else? i also read that she used to eat out of dumpsters before she got a record deal...oh, and you know what else....? lol!

nunaurbiz said...

I'm not convinced it's Madonna. For one, I don't think her divorce was messy with Sean. Maybe the marriage was, but I remember the divorce being real swift.

DivaJulia said...

I heard YEARS ago about Madonna cruising Alphabet City in a limo for Latin boys...the herp wasn't mentioned back then but not at ALL surprising. Good Lord. After all those years of trolling, I'm surprised that's ALL she has. Bleh.

selenakyle said...

OMG OMG OMG I can only think of Madonna or Liza Minnelli.

chinacat said...

I am 500% convinced that it's Madonna. Icky.

Bad Fish said...

This is so a non-blind I'm surprised EL wrote it as such. He's been doing that a lot lately, like with the Travolta blind.

Eva said...

For some reason I was thinking country music.
I will just say it. Reba.

robert said...

Madge is too easy a pick but it feels so right.

I was in the boonies of Germany at a tiny Air Base with absolutely nothing else to do and we all walked out of the theater for the movie "Who's That Girl" because it sucked so bad.

We chose to play games on a Commodore 64 rather than finish the movie.

She did get the Dick Tracy movie around 1990 so she was higher end but it just seems too obvious. Would rather it was someone else for the effort.

Allie said...

Barbra Streisand, of course.


Hee, just kidding.

ahdaboom said...

he's mad? he got a free piece of ass and could have worn a condom.

Dharma said...

M also starred in "Desperately Seeking Susan" way back when..

flowers said...

I love this site why because I got a lot of information from this site

Needle said...

Great find jw12! :)

I think this is Madonna. She really has done everything in the entertainment industry, even if not well. Posed for Playboy. Singer. Songwriter. Set fashions (though stolen from everyone else at the time). Music producer with her own record company. Acting, especially during the late 80s and 90s when she tried desperately (no pun intended) to switch over to acting. Movie producer. Author of not only the Sex book but also childrens' books. She's won grammys, ama's, and apparently a golden globe (Thanks for the info Cheryl).

Madonna has had a *thing* for Latinos. Notoriously. And the herp and the divorce could both have been presents from Penn.

My take on "actress" was that she has to act at everything she does, because she's not very good at it.

If it's someone else, I'll admit defeat humbly. :)

nunaurbiz said...

Eva, Reba ain't no saint, but she ain't this BI. Her first husband, Charlie Battles, abused her physically, but they were divorced quickly in 1987, by which time she'd already taken up with her present husband, Narvel Blackstock. (And she was famous enough that her divorce was ended very quickly and bloodlessly. Not messy.) At the end of the 1980s, Reba was only known for being a country singer. Nobody ever thought she'e be an actress. Come to think of it, she's not really one now *meow*

lyz said...

Cher?

bflogurl said...

Madonna.

And in addition to her 23 acting credits on imbd, let's not forget her ongoing British accent role....

Larry said...

You all got this one wrong, in that period Madonna was still building her careet and was neither an A-lister yet or even married to get divorced. The one A-lister who was going through one of her typically messy divorces at that time and classed as an entertainer would be Liza Minelli. She also had a proclivity for young boys especially Latino youth. In the early 90's Liza who suffered many ailments was said to be suffering a sexual disease, but nothing more was published about the exact nature.

linnea said...

Larry, until I saw your comment I was absolutely convinced it was Madonna... but I was just a kid back then so I have no idea how big she was in the early 90´s.

bflogurl said...

Larry, Madonna and Sean Penn were married from 1985-1989....wtf are you talking about?? (Not to mention she was what most would call the height of here career at the time.....)
