Well, that is it for this time around. I really hope you enjoyed the day a great deal. I know I have said it often recently but I am very grateful to each of you for all that you do everyday. I have the best readers. Every morning I write this blog I do it for all of you. I want to thank you again for making the past 2.5 years a joy and I look forward to continuing this for as long as you keep showing up to read and comment.
I want to thank all of you again for the wonderful donations. I have written many of you back to thank you individually and will keep doing so until I finish. Next week I will also be sending out the checks to the various charities you picked and will announce them next Friday. I also want to thank the readers who advertise on the site. I neglected to mention them last week and I feel bad about that.
Ticket Liquidators is a great place for tickets when an event is sold out or you need great seats. A To D List has been taking a break for the past few weeks but I understand they are going to start again soon. I encourage all of you to head over to the site and help out with the classifying of celebrities. I am jealous of Second City Style this week because they are in Chicago and Taste Of Chicago which is incredible. Plus, they definitely have one of the best fireworks celebrations in the country. Take a look at Second City's site for some great tips and deals on fashion. Travelatime is a wonderful place to look for your vacation needs. I know there are lots of sites out there, but if they have the same price, then help out a fellow reader. Dragon Search Marketing is a great company that can help your site or your product get seen all over the world. They have a great team of people over there and the President is a daily reader of the site.
I hope that all of you have had a great weekend so far. I hope it continues to be great and that everyone stays safe so I can see you back here on Monday morning. As for the next reveals, mark your calendar for New Years Day.

#1 - This A+ list Academy Award winner/nominee actress spent some two weeks ago at a Veteran's hospital. She did so quietly and without publicity. She spent time with every patient she could and when she left, she gave them all gift bags which included a $1000 gift certificate to Best Buy.
#2 This A+ list Academy Award winner/nominee actor also spent time with the troops at the same hospital. He didn't being gift bags but did stay for many hours and visited with everyone there and shared stories and listened and also didn't want any publicity for being there.

In two weeks this magazine I love to hate is going to have a cover reuniting the cast of a popular 80's-90's tweener comedy. Well, almost the entire cast. It seems that the bigger stars from the show would only agree to pose for the cover if two of the members of the cast were not involved. The magazine agreed.

#2 - Show
#3 & #4 - The two cast members excluded.

This is a great story. It is all the more so because the person involved didn't want any credit for what he did. A former MVP winning NFL player recently paid to have 70 underprivileged children and their families flown to Walt Disney World for a vacation. He picked up the entire cost for everything with no sponsor help and no publicity for himself.

#3 & #4 - Kindness - These two actors were once co-stars in television and at least one movie. One is now A list and only does movies, while the other has dropped from an A list movie star to a B- list will take anything actor. Anyway, the two were at a charity sports event recently and at the event was an auction where someone could win a round of golf with the pair. Well, instead of just one winner, they surprised the audience by inviting everyone who bid on the item to play golf with them. They paid for everyone to play, a party after and gave a $100,000 donation to the charity who had sponsored the original auction.

While shooting on the set of their latest movie, these two stars have a completely different way of interacting with their fans. Well, I should say one interacts with fans, and one pretends she cannot see or hear them. Our B+ list movie actor usually plays the fun guy and it seems that when he is filming it is the exact same way. He spends most of the time in between takes speaking with fans, taking pictures and talking the entire time. Our A+ list actress on the other hand spends her time in between takes as far away from the fans as possible and has absolutely nothing to do with them. She is very good at pretending not to hear them or see them.

This one kind of hurts because I like this person. She is a celebrity. Not an actress, but a C+/B- television host and former reality star. Anyway as a host of her program she has a few provisions that she needs followed at all times. No one can speak to her prior to 8am. Also, she needs a minimum of two hours for makeup. Either her boyfriend or a friend must be with her at all times. She only does one take of each stand up she does before the camera. One. No more than that ever. She is such a diva that most of the crew quits after working with her for just one episode.

This married A list female singer has a very funny way of working. For example, when she is scheduled to shoot a music video she shows up at one time of day and one time of day only. If the director schedules a 7am shoot, that is great, but our singer is not going to show up until 11. No, not 11am. That would only be four hours late. Nope, our singer only shoots videos at 11pm. No one knows if it is her playing diva or because she can't get going until that time of night. No one wants to work on her videos anymore unless they are paid the very top rate available plus overtime due to all the down time and waiting and waiting. Because of the diva attitude, her videos cost an extra $25,000-30,000 a day to shoot than they would if she showed on time.

This Academy Award nominated/winner A+ list actor doesn't get much publicity for all of the good he does, and so I thought I would share one of the things about him which he did for no reason other than being a great guy. While shooting a film our actor was introduced to a young girl. The girl had wanted to meet our actor for a very long time. Because she was dying of leukemia, her parents had asked Make-A-Wish to make it happen. For whatever reason they had not. Well, someone on the set heard about this little girl and asked our actor if it would be ok for her to meet him. He said sure, and the girl came. At the time she visited him she had a few weeks to live. When he asked about her medical treatment he was told there really wasn't any money. Our actor paid for all her medical bills and three years later she is still alive and still in touch with our actor.

#1 - Some good news for this formerly B+ movie actress and now a C. It appears she is off the drugs and even her husband appears clean. The bad news is he can't get a job and so has been hired by the producers as her personal makeup artist for the movie she is filming right now. I can't believe she got another movie.
#4 - Kindness - This A list actress who used to be the highest paid actress in Hollywood donated her entire paycheck from a recent movie to four different charities. It was the largest donation any of the four charities had ever received.
#1 - Brittany Murphy
#4 - Sandra Bullock

This Academy Award winner/nominee A list movie actor is also a big music fan. Not so much of other music, but primarily of his own. He also has a huge ego. On a recent movie he was shooting he had it written into his contract that once a week a certain number of crew members had to show up in his hotel suite and listen to our actor play his guitar and the songs he was writing. Most of the songs were about himself and things he had accomplished in his life. Needless to say the crew hated him with a passion. Instead of going home to their families, once a week they had to go to a hotel suite for a few hours and listen to the bag of wind go on and on about great he was. In song.

I think when I reveal this one to you, you will gain a much deeper appreciation of what I am going through as I think of a good way to write this item and also trying to get all of the mental images out of my head. I literally just shivered. Anyway, what we have here is a marriage that didn't last long, but oh what a wedding it was. Everyone was there to see this couple getting married. The divorce was just as spectacular. The husband is a celebrity both in North America and in Europe. The wife is a permanent A list entertainer. She will always be A list. Anyway, contrary to everything you would think to be true, this couple did have sex on a fairly regular basis. In fact, the story goes they had sex every day and sometimes twice a day. The only catch to the whole thing was that the husband has OCD in a very serious way and he insisted that his wife remove the sheets from the bed after the deed and throw them away to never be used again. He wouldn't touch sheets either new or not and wouldn't allow anyone other than his wife to touch them or make the bed.

#1 & #2 - This intense B list movie and sometime television actor takes parenting very seriously. He knows the reputation of bars and clubs in Hollywood to serve underage celebrities. So, to make sure his B list actress daughter doesn't drink he calls ahead to wherever she is going and makes sure they know they will be in for a world of hurt if they serve her booze.
#3 - She might not always be the best role model as a mother, but this former B list movie actress with A list name recognition is extremely controlling when it comes to the location of her kids. Not only does she have GPS trackers on the cell phones of her kids, she also doesn't allow them to go out at night unless she or a parent is with them. She knows what kind of mistakes she made as a teenager and doesn't want her kids to make the same mistakes.

I was going to call this a jackass post, but in reality it is just typical celebrity behavior and so although jackass-ish, probably not full on qualifying for it. You decide. This movie actress is B list for sure. All of you know who she is. Mainstream popcorn movie leads and art house leads as well. I would say our married mother has A list name recognition. Anyway, our actress bought a hat. Not some cheap Avril Lavigne looking trucker hat, but a hat which actually costs money. Serious money. I think we should all be shocked that she actually paid for the hat in the first place. Well, for three months straight she wore that hat everywhere she went. Then after three months she went to the store and told them she didn't like it and wanted a full refund of her money. This was even though it had makeup on it, had her hair plastered in it and was obviously well worn. Even though the designer of the hats would have loved her endorsement he told her to take a hike. Nice.
The designer is Santino Fonzarelli ( I know, I know)

This C list television/sometime film actress had one big hit on television and a nice steady paycheck from it for at least four or five years. Since then it has been hit or miss with television and movies with a more misses than hits. Anyway, this actress has a great story that she will share with anyone who will listen. It seems that on this hit show she had a female co-star who was not so much into guys if you know what I mean. However, it was more secret at that time then it is now. Anyway the co-star sat our C list actress down and without any kind of introduction or preamble or chit chat said, "You know I f**k bi**ches right?" Our C list actress who couldn't believe they were having this conversation, said "Oh yeah. Sure I knew," even though she really wasn't 100% sure at that time either. Our co-star then said, "Good. Just checking." She then got up and walked away and presumably to tell another person.

#3 - This former A list movie actor and now pretend singer and movie actor was playing at a recent golf tournament. Along the side of the fairways were multi-million dollar homes. In the driveway of one of these homes was a huge RV painted in a rather garish color. Our actor said the RV distracted him and he refused to play until it was move out of his eyesight.

This aging former list television actor hasn't been on anything big in years. Back in the day he went from a hit drama straight into a hit comedy. Now he spends most of his days yelling obscenities at his neighbors dog. His neighbor is a B list actor who was the lead on a semi hit comedy. Our former A list actor is married to a former beauty queen who was on a hit television comedy.

Now for today. Today is nothing juicy or earth shaking but it cracks me up so thought I would share it. I almost didn't because there have been a lot of stories recently about actors and their lifts, but this one is too good to pass up because it's so funny. This C list actor on a very good day, and realistically a D who used to be a B was on one of the most popular television comedies of all time. Not necessarily by numbers, but it was not the fault of the show. Since the show went of the air he has done a little of this and a little of that. The other night he went over to a friend's house. This friend, like many people makes people remove their shoes when they enter the house. She told our actor that he needed to take off his shoes. He threw a fit right there in the doorway and complained for a good five minutes before finally taking off his shoes and dropping about four inches in height. The laughs in the place weren't that loud. Well, not loud enough for a neighbor to hear anyway. No one would have even noticed if he hadn't thrown the fit. But because he did everyone was staring at him.

It is kind of like a Three For Monday. We have a B-/C+ television and film actress who is currently a female lead on this network drama. It's a new show. Popular though. Anyway, her male co-star is extremely popular on this site, but he is also probably a B-/C+ mostly television actor. Apparently our actress has been acting like a diva on the show and our actor called her out on it. This is an actual quote. " You are a f**king c**t. Who the hell do you think you are that you can treat people the way you do on set. The crew hates you the cast hates you and the producers hate you and this is no way to build any kind of career, so knock it off you f**king whore." Oh, and both of our actors are foreign born.

This is not something terribly dramatic, but I just felt like posting a kindness today. This C list actress/writer/producer on a very hit television comedy had noticed all of these photos of a missing cat on telephone poles and in windows. She didn't really think much about it, but a day or two after she first saw the pictures, she met a little girl who was standing with her mom on the corner and they were putting up more pictures. So, our actress to be kind asked about the cat, and found it that it had been the girl's cat and that she had literally had it from almost the day she was born and she was now 8. The mother and daughter recognized our actress and they took some photos with a cell phone camera and our actress signed an autograph on one of the cat posters. The cat had managed to get outside when the front door had been left open by the cable guy.
Anyway, about a week goes by and our actress called the family to see if they had found the cat and they had not and had given up hope. The next day, our actress stopped by their house along with two other members of the show and dropped off a brand new kitten to the little girl.
