Today's Blind Items

It is not quite up to the same level as Coke Mom, but I definitely think this mom is headed in that direction. The reason I say it isn't as bad as Coke Mom is because this divorced C+/B- movie and television actress who has had some very meaty roles doesn't actually use coke in front of her child as far as I know. I mean she might but her child is a little older than Coke Mom's child so would probably remember it. Our actress has always had a very solid career. If you saw her you would know her instantly even if you didn't know her name. The problem is that her coke use has got so out of hand that she missed three straight auditions for what would have been her biggest role to date. She would have been the lead in a popcorn flick but instead it went to someone else and so now our actress is stuck in a movie no one is going to see, playing essentially the same character she always plays.

Oh, and since you read this far, if you see a picture of Coke Mom lately she has the crazy eyes. Those big huge how the hell do pupils get that big kind of look. Oh, and forget trying to talk to her. She can't stand in one place for longer than about 30 seconds.

  1. I coke mom Jamie Pressley?

    I ask because peeing on the sidewalk could be signs of a bigger problem.

  2. I'm having a hard time with this one. But I think Jamie Pressley's child is too young.

  3. Coke mom could be Jamie Pressley

    This blind: Carla Gugino?

    ReplyDelete
  4. I think Jaime's talked about having eating problems previously, but she's already getting ready for husband number two, and I think Enty would have mentioned it.

    This blind - no idea. Too vague.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Enty said Coke Mom is married - Jaime Pressly is not. And getting older - JP is only 32.

    But I like how Enty always lets little clues on Coke Mom slip.

  6. Heather Locklear immediately came to mind, but I don't know...too old?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Heather does have big eyes sometimes, but I thought it was the bad plastic surgery.

    ReplyDelete
  8. This one seems impossible:
    Somewhat known yet unknown actress divorced with a kid who's appeared in TV and movies.
    Ummm, yeah.
    I thought of couple of actresses who were appropos but they don't have kids according to IMDB.
    My brain hurts.

  9. Isn't Coke Mom either Debra Messing or Angie Harmon (or wasn't Angie CM #2)?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Did Anne Heche get ruled out for coke mom? She's got freaky eyes sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  11. The "know her instantly" is one of the phrases that made me think of Locklear. Doesn't everybody know who she is regardless of generation? But she's never been a star in a film. She always plays the same character.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Well the only other person I have been thinking for awhile (Coke Mom) is Tori Spelling.

    ReplyDelete
  13. agreed, locklear. courtney cox is married and heche does not play the same role repeatedly. plus locklear has a movie coming out costarring billy ray cyrus. certainly no one will see that.

    ReplyDelete
  14. If the pupils were really huge, that would be more indicative of a central nervous system stimulant like Meth than a narcotic like coke.

    Just saying. Coke eyes are pinprick eyes.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Locklear. What an idiot.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Heather Locklear's daughter is 12. The kid is too old for her to be CM1. CM2 is a possibility, I guess.

    Thanks for being servicey Kara!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I thought of Kate Hudson but she's mostly done movies right? I'm stumped

    ReplyDelete
  18. cocaine can certainly dilate pupils, fact.

    is tori spelling in the running at all for cm2? i find it easy to beleive with her appearance manner and attitude. also the blindly self centered behaviour towards children, mother.

    just a thought.

    ReplyDelete
  19. My coke pupils were always huge. My Xanax pupils were tiny.

    Hey, I'm not as proud of the past as I am proud to be alive and well!

    I think Harmon fits in somewhere, and Tori has to. Just has to.

    ReplyDelete
  20. going with heather locklear. Great guess.

    ReplyDelete
  21. This one today seems like it could be Jamie Pressley; good guess y'all!

    ReplyDelete
  22. It's not Jamie pressely...she has an infant/toddler...which doesn't fit with the blind considering that it says the child is a little bit older.
    Place she doesn't play the same character all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  23. It says you would know her face even if you didn't know her name. How many people don't know Heather Locklear by name?

    ReplyDelete
  24. sherylinn fenn? the brunette of "twin peaks" who looked alike a young Elizabeth Taylor

    coke mom:mariska hargitay?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wish Enty would label all the coke mom clues for easy reference...

    Was going back through the random photos, and Marcia Cross' eyes look crazy. Don't know if she fits other clues, tho.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ok, Jamie PRessley's kid isn't even two. NOT HER! HARMON just had a baby 2 years ago too. Harmon is not a big name either. She's always been coke whored out. I'm thinking Messing who always plays the same character, could have really screwed up because she is somewhat relevant, And also Locklear. Terri Hatcher too, but she is still working on DH.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I think it is hilarious you guys keep guessing Harmon. I can't stand her and she is a terrible actress.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Angie Harmon has three little girls so I don't think it's her. Will coke mom ever be revealed? It's driving me nuts!

    ReplyDelete
  29. "you would know her instantly even if you didn't know her name"

    this is a big clue

    ReplyDelete
  30. On the Courtney train....I am going with Ms. Cool(above) and Courtney Cox Arquette FTW!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I think almost everyone who's been mentioned has a pretty recognizable name that everyone would know. Really, who wouldn't know Heather Locklear by name? No way this is her. We're looking for someone WAY less known, probably a secondary character in a LOT of movies, maybe someone who always plays the "best friend" or something like that.

    ReplyDelete
  32. char - exactly my thought

    ReplyDelete
  33. I thought I had a winner with Brooke Shields, star of "Clive Barkers Midnight Meat Train" (a very meaty role;) but she is still married?

    Leslie Bibb was also in that movie but wikipedia mentions neither divorce nor children.

    Ah, well it was a thought...

    ReplyDelete
  34. this is a TOTALLY off the wall y'all will roast me on a spit guess.

    Angelina Jolie. (i know i know....she's not unknown but doesn't enty sometimes disguise the clues a little?)

    enty has 3 pics of her below this blind item, and pointedly mentions it.

    but would jolie have to audition for roles?

    ReplyDelete
  35. I respectfully disagree with the coke mom 2 being just a sidekick. Another clue is that she's "had some very meaty roles." To me, that doesn't seem like the good ole' best friend.

    The C+,B- label combined with "know her instantly" seem like such a contradiction to me.

    I stand by my Heather Locklear guess, but am still trying to think of others. Her bug-eyed mugshot haunts my brain. She definitely looked coked out in that one. And I use this theory as a test: If I placed Heather Locklear's pic in front of my parents or in-laws, they would surely say they've seen her before like in Dynasty or on Melrose, but odds are they probably wouldn't know her name right off the bat. But I know everybody my age (30s) would know her.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Heather by thy name - JoeSez not her. Well known.

    What meaty roles has Heather had?

    Her problems are well too publicized (IMHO) for her (at 48 years old) to land a role as a Lead in a popcorn flick.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Going out on a limb... Catherine Keener? She has a 10 year old, and she's divorced. I have no idea if she would be C/B, and I haven't heard anything about her off-screen personality, so I could be way off base.

    ReplyDelete
  38. has anyone guessed jessica alba for the original coke mom..recent pictures of her-I don't know, but something seems very, very off.

    I guess I'll go with Locklear for this one. The clues are pretty vague.

    ReplyDelete
  39. People guess Jessica Alba for the original coke mom, but then it's pointed out that she matches exactly none of the clues. Her child is not old enough to imitate her snorting - when the first BI was published, Honor wasn't even walking. She wouldn't kill to be in the movies, Alba is basically exclusively movies now. Also? One of the coke mom clues is that her husband nearly left her - can anyone imagine Cash Warren walking away from Alba while she still earns money?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Coke Mom obviously isn't going to be walking a red carpet or giving interviews. If she's working she's no doubt cancelling interviews. Is there anyone other than Jessica Alba who is looking like crap lately? I could see Debra Messing on this one.

    I like Heather Locklear, but has she done movies? She's really a TV actress. A very solid career with "meaty roles" and someone that you would know even if you don't know their name. In a movie that no one will see?

    Still no clue.

  42. "you would know her instantly even if you didn't know her name"

    Cheers - theme song - "where everybody knows your name"

    maybe...Shelley Long?

    ReplyDelete
  43. How about Kirstie Alley? I thought of her for "meaty" (because she's fat!) and hadn't even thought of the Cheers connection.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Ha! And she's even got a 2009 film, "Aunt Rita"!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oooh, and she's got a 15-year-old daughter and 17-year-old son! Sorry for the multiple posts, but I NEVER get these, and I feel like I cured cancer or something right now.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Has Ashlee Simpson been ruled out as Coke Mom #1? I've always thought it was her, and she has recently appeared in a few pictures with huge pupils, looking very skinny and generally drugged out...

    For Coke Mom #2, I really like the Anne Heche guess. This is not just because she is bat-shit crazy, but I think she fits almost all of the clues we are given in this blind as well:

    1) She a is C+/B- movie and television actress who's landed some meaty roles in Donnie Brasco, Psycho, Ally McBeal, Men in Trees, and now Hung;

    2) She's divorced with a 7 year old son;

    3) She's got a totally recognizable face but not the most famous name, despite the fact that she's had a very solid career working steadily in the business for almost 20 years;

    4) According to IMDB, she stars in the new movie "Spread" with Ashton Kutcher, a film that I have never even heard of despite the fact that it's being released this weekend;

    5) Her character in "Spread" is a middle aged lawyer dating a younger womanizer, and she has played the jilted middle aged lover/wife many times before.

    It all adds up except for one potential discrepancy - it's implied that Coke Mom #2 only has one child but Anne Heche gave birth to a second son this spring. Do you think that would eliminate her?

    ReplyDelete
  47. I think Coke Mom #1 is an actress, not a singer, so that should rule out Ashleee.

    As for #2, how about Julianne Moore? "Meaty" made me think about Hannibal Lector.

    Everyone knows Heather Locklear's name.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I like the Kirstie Alley guess but I can't see her landing a lead in a popcorn flick at her age and weight. And it's not just that she's heavy, but she's lost her looks. Popcorn flick means summer blockbuster (action?) movie to me, they cast young and beautiful women for the lead roles.

    So it has to be someone who has had a solid C+/B- career in movie and tv, but she's still young and pretty enough to be the lead in a popcorn flick. But she's in another movie (out now? "no one is going to see" -- that's a big clue, no?) playing the same role as always.

    Wait a second... could Kirstie Alley have been up to play Julia Child in Julie & Julia?! Would they have wanted her before Meryl Streep?! That seems improbable, but intriguing...

    ReplyDelete
  49. I really like the Catherine Keener guess! She really fits these clues... meaty roles, physically recognizable even if you don't know her name, probably would have to audition for things outside of her normal fare, divorced, C+/B- fits, has older kid...

    ReplyDelete
  50. "meaty roles" "know her name" Kirstie Alley?

    ReplyDelete
  51. FYI: Cocaine is a CNS stimulant, not a narcotic, therefore it would dilate the pupils, not cause miosis

    ReplyDelete
  52. Nice job on the clues, Samtagious. Didn't Kirstie Alley have a pretty heavy coke addiction back in the day? But you would think the lead in a popcorn flick would mean a younger, thinner actress.

    I have no clue...

    ReplyDelete
  53. what about jenna elfman for coke mom 1?

    ReplyDelete
  54. Jaime Pressly's explanation for the alleged peeing incident...

    http://justjared.buzznet.com/2009/08/12/jaime-pressly-it-wasnt-pee/

    do we believe it?

    ReplyDelete
  55. I thought the original blind on Coke Mom said she had a young son. I don't believe its Jessica Alba (she has a movie career, though not necessarily a good one) and Catherine Keener seems too old for the description plus, she seems to like the career she's carved out.

    While she doesn't fit the profile (no child) I keep thinking that Coke Mom is someone like a Missi Pyle actress. She works a lot and when you see her in a movie or on television, you instantly go, "Oh, I know her!" but at the same time, can't actually recall her real name if pressed. I think the Coke Moms are someone like that, we know who they are when we see them in something, but they aren't the first ones to pop in our minds like the few who get named for everything it seems on these Blinds (Courtney, Debra, Angie, Jessica, et al).

  56. Ah .robert - you beat me to it, I was just thinking Denise Richards.

  57. Alright, alright, how about this: JENNY MCCARTHY.
