Four For Friday - Celebrity Employers

#1 & 2 - This foreign born still A list model/reality star and her foreign born celebrity husband have lots of employees. The thing is they treat them all very, very well. Not a day goes by where they don't send someone on their staff a letter, card or e-mail which tells them how much they are appreciated. It's the little things.

#3 & 4 - At the opposite end of the spectrum is this couple which consists of a foreign born B list movie actress and her former A list movie actor husband. Not only do they regularly berate their employees and yell at them, but the actress loves to have what she calls cleaning days. Not cleaning one of their homes mind you, but cleaning out all of their employees. As in firing them all. Her other special thrill is firing someone right before they are scheduled to go on vacation.

sunnyside1213 said...

3 & 4 Cathrine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas.

nunaurbiz said...

I agree Heidi and Seal for #1-2

I'd guess Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas for #3-4

Ryan said...

Heidi and Seal 100%

Funny Girl said...

#1 is not even blind-- Heidi and Seal.

RocketQueen said...

Agree with Heidi/Seal and this makes me love them even more...and I didn't think that was possible.

I don't know about the second couple, but I honestly don't understand people who could even THINK of treating other people that way. It's disgusting and sociopathic.

annie said...

heidi and seal are #1 for sure... although my first thought was paulina poritzkova and rick ocasik from the cars.. not sure she's a-list though.

#2? douchebag 1 and douchbag 2.

Funny Girl said...

@sunnyside -- CZJ and Michael Douglas for #3 & 4 are great guesses.

pomme said...

i like Klum/Seal guess for #1&2 and Zeta Jones/Douglas guess for #3&4!

Majik said...

CZJ has an Oscar...doesn't that make her automatic A?

Not that I don't think that's a good guess....


I would clean toilets for Heidi and Seal.

Patty said...

Like the Heidi and Seal guess.

Isn't CZJ A-List with her Oscar for Chicago?

Patty said...

I don't think Rick Ocasic ever acted in movies, much less a former A-lister.

Ms Cool said...

I feel like CZJ and Michael Douglas will always be A-List because of their Academy Awards.

Looking forward to these to be revealed.

nancer said...

yay heidi and seal! love them both. shit, i'd love to WORK for them.

are you always A list if you've won an oscar? CZJ and MD sure fit the bill for 3 and 4.

A said...

I knew right away 1&2 were Heidi and Seal. Love them!

3&4...Douglas and CZJ excellent guess. Maybe she's B-list now because all she's doing is T-Mobile commercials.

Ellen said...

I agree with A...the T-Mobile commericals demote CZJ to B list :)

As for 1&2...totally agree with everyone else (Seal & Heidi). I would never expect a celebrity boss to be that appreciative. How cool is that?

trouble bubble said...

But is Seal a celebrity? I think he should be considered a singer in the first place.

mom said...

czj and md for 3 & 4 definitely.

angelina said...

Seal is a singer before he's a celebrity--I mean, that's what he was known for way before he hooked up with Heidi.

altar boy said...

3 & 4 is beyond hateful. how can a person be capable of having a loving relationship with anyone (spouse, children, close family) and then turn around and treat another human being like that. i hope that this story is greatly exaggerated. if not -- please, karma, take this couple down.

Ariel said...

I could not possibly love Heidi and Seal any more than I already do!!! How wonderful

1 & 2: My first thought was Heidi and Seal. They seem so happy together.

3 & 4: Catherine Zeta-Jones and the old man seem like a great guess.

selenakyle said...

#1 & #2 Heidi and Seal Samuel, for sure.

Haven't read # 3 & #4 yet...

Daniel Alex said...

Your not too bad yourself Ariel. Nice cookie!

Tara said...

Heidi and Seal are a great guess, but I would think he would be described as a singer. However, perhaps the blind was written that way so it wouldn't be totally obvious?

My first thought for 3 & 4 was CZJ and MD. I'm glad to see that others thought that, too! Whoever they are, they are complete DB's.

Kara said...

I agree with everyone else and feel really super smart for thinking of them BEFORE reading the comments!

white lorelei said...

Def CZJ and Michael Douglas for 3 and 4. Zeta Jones cannot open a movie. She dropped down to B list a long time ago. She does cell phone commercials for Pete's sake.

There are a lot of Oscar winners who were one shot wonders and therefore are not A-list. I'm just saying .... an Oscar doesn't keep you on the A list.

Jaiden_S said...

Great guesses! I think you guys nailed both of these.

Char said...

Wow I got these before looking at the comments! Yay for Heidi and Seal, love them!

G said...

I thought Heidi and Seal too, but that celebrity husband threw me. He's definitely known as being a singer. But does that make him a "celebrity" as well. Hmmmm.

Michael Douglas and the Bitch really do fit this one. There is nothing to like about them. If he was as interested as raising children as screwing women he wouldn't have a son that sits in a prison cell indefinitely.

DivaJulia said...

Clearly, an Oscar doesn't an eternal A-List make. Tatum O'Neal, anyone?

Totally Heidi/Seal

And totally those two a-holes CZJ and MD. Nast.

Basil said...

I have no idea who number 3 is, but if I were her, I would be careful about the food being served to me by my staff.

Why would anyone treat people like that and make a game of it? That is beyond sadism.

fireflies said...

1&2 - My first thought was that it could be Paulina and Ric. But, Heidi and Seal fit as well.

3&4 - No clue, but I hope Enty reveals this in July, because I don't want to support people who have such disregard for others.

mngddess said...

Heidi and Seal for #1&2. Mainly because it fits so well and I don't think Enty would carefully hide a kindness.

As for #3&4, I would consider CZJ A-list. She has an Oscar and has been the star of movies. I think Enty is throwing us off the scent, as it were.

Selock said...

I am def on board with Heidi & Seal...this sounds like them! LOVE THEM.

And CZJ & Michael Douglas for the second pair. Laaaaaame.

PollyPureBred said...

#1 & 2 probably Heidi and Seal, but Ric and Paulina are A LIST to me! :)

Jamie's Girl said...

Heidi and Seal are both jerks.

Jamie's Girl said...

Heidi and Seal are both jerks.

Jamie's Girl said...

Heidi and Seal are both jerks.

Halfmad said...

I was thinking Posh and Becks for 1 and 2 -- doesn't really sound like them, and it would be a nice surprise. I know someone who happened to be staying somewhere that Heidi and Seal and entourage were staying, and she said that Seal came over and talked to them and their child and was super nice, so who knows.

PJ Nelson said...

Goodness, are CZJ and MD that bad? Just askin'... never read anything like that, that I can remember.

J said...

There are some stories going around in the German press right now about Heidi replacing her two judges on Germany's Next Top Model without informing them herself. Neither of the judges (one of them who had been a judge since season 1) have anything really nice to say about working with her, one of them has said a couple of harsh words actually (i.e., not having her cell phone number, about her not spending any time with the contestents unless the camera was there, ...) I can't find any English articles about this but you can find plenty of German ones if you want to look them up.

libby said...

J, I won't deny that I'm a Heidi-defender here, but she spoke a few years ago about why she does not spend time with contestants on her shows: She doesn't want her judgment clouded by personal feelings. She is very German, very serious and conscientious about her duties.

#1 is Heidi and not Paulina because it says "Still A list model/reality star." Paulina is no longer an A-list model (Legendary, but doesn't model anymore like Heidi), and she has been fired by Tyra Banks. Paulina is no longer 'still' either profession.

I believe that CZJ got the score of the century when that old man chased her down. He wanted to go on a date with her after seeing her in that Zorro movie. A lot of other men did, too, but MD was the richest. Gross.

If I were CZJ's assistant, I would put weight gain powder or lard in everything she ate or drank. Only 40 pounds, and CZJ would tilt more to the Delta Burke. Awesome!

cibele said...

That's weird. Years ago some guy from MTV Brazil interviewed Seal and said he was very rude and a big diva. Maybe he changed...

shakey said...

Maybe Heidi and Seal are different when it comes to people who are close to them. I once had a boss who constantly slammed his desk drawers and swore worse than a sailor. But with his family? Number 1 Dad and husband. When they called, everything was dropped, even interrupted meetings for them.

I imagine there aren't many B list actresses and former A-listers who have multiple homes (has to be more than 2 otherwise I don't think that would be part of the clue). I think CZJ and MD are pretty good guesses.

penelope said...

What about Iman and Bowie for 1 and 2? I don't know what their reputation is in the industry -- just a suggestion since some of you have some not so nice things to say about the front runners.

HautieTx said...

I recall a few years back that Barbara Walters said on The View.... that when CZJ and MD were married instead of gifts they made the request that their guest donate money.

Donate money to their new child's trust fund.

Seriously.

Not donate money for to a worthy non-profit. Or to a SPCA. Or maybe even a Children's Hospital fund to help the underprivileged.

But donate money to a trust fund of their own child. A child who should not need for a thing cause his own parents can afford to pay for his needs.

And the reason CZJ does those TV commercials, she is being paid an obscene amount of money to do them. I am sure that money, is HER MONEY. Not "our" money.

Maybe she is funding her own trust fund with it. hahaha!

Kaye said...

I agree with the Iman/David Bowie guess for 1 & 2

KateAna said...

I'm going to go with Heidi & Seal for #1&2!

I'll be basing my guess on a Heidi Klum interview with Redbook:

http://www.ivillage.com/heidi-klum-red-dress-interview/1-a-111044

She talks about Seal being romantic and how he does "the little things" - echoing the words used in the blind :)

North London Girl said...

Hi, long time lurker and loving loving love CDAN, anyhoo, although I am not sure who these blinds are (and feeling CZJ and MD for 3&4) just want to reply to Hautie Tx's comments, if I remember correctly, at their wedding, CZJ&MD asked for money to go to their son's trust fund so that when he came of age, he could choose a charity that the money could go to.

star_grades said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA DickInsideU, you are too funny. I don't know what your problem with Ent is, but it is beyond hilarious.

I like everyones guesses for these BI's.

figgy said...

Dick insideu is no doubt Charlie Sheen.

Bexy said...

For a second I thought Dick InsideU was Jon Gosselin but I doubt he can write as well as those posts indicate.

Haters suck.

mags said...

Heidi & Seal or David & Iman. Both couples seem like kind people. Enty posted a copy of a letter David Bowie wrote back to a fan last month from 1967.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1241563/David-Bowies-1967-letter-U-S-fan-unearthed.html


CZJ & MD for 3 & 4 wouldn't surprise me. At a charity event she made a whopping bid of $25 for a McCartney signature.

Looks like Charlie or Alec is playing on the computer again.

Lioness70 said...

DIU, how long did it take you to write that? Surely you had something else to do with your day...

Agree that 1 and 2 are Heidi and Seal and 3 and 4 are CZJ and Douglas. Let's hope the kids turn out OK after growing up in a household like that. Yikes.

Michelle said...

Hey Dick Insideu, you are most DEFINATELY a dick, too bad you lack the balls to use yourreal name.
As for the blind, I agree with Heidi and Seal for 1&2. Still not totally sold on CZJ and Micheal Douglas for 3&4.I don't have a better one, but I think there are more guesses coming.

Bev said...

I immediately thought Iman and David Bowie. That's where I'm keeping my guess.
The other two...no freaking idea.

chihuahuense said...

I hope its Heidi/Seal CZJ/old man

It would cement my opinions of them all

crila16 said...

It doesn't matter if you have an Oscar or not that determines whether you're A or B list. Sandra Bullock doesn't have an Oscar yet, and is considered A list...where Gwyneth Paltrow has dropped to a B. It's whether you can carry a movie on your own and if you're a box office draw (A list). a B list actress/actor is someone that can carry a movie, as long as there is another B list movie actress/actor starring along side with them. Someone like Catherine Zeta is a B list. Michael used to be an A list...but has definitely dropped.

linnea said...

awww, i missed the troll!

Harriet Hellfire said...

I always get the feeling that Dick Insideu writes these rants, and then jerks off to them. Don't know why.

sarah said...

i'm going to go with bowie and iman for 1 and 2.
no idea for 3 and 4.

Diane said...

I'm much more Iman/Bowie on this because I've heard nothing but great things about how Bowie treats his fans, and Iman seems like pure class. Though perhaps it is Heidi and Seal, who knows? But Ric Ocasek is disqualified because he was born here in the States and is as such not a "foreigner" unless this is framed from a non-American viewpoint.

I wouldn't be surprised if #s 3 and 4 are CZJ and Michael Douglas because Douglas comes from a family of sociopaths (the only decent one in the clan died recently) (his old man Kirk was pretty much the devil incarnate according to the mountain of stories against him), and CZJ seems like such a null that she would actually probably get off on doing bullshit like that. Eventually they'll get theirs, though; maybe their homes will fall into the sea or they'll be swindled BADLY by a Bernie Madoff type (who actually gets away with it) or something.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

Still nothing, huh? :(

Daveb said...

I know the rating system isn't transparent but I was under the impression that an Oscar didn't automatically make you A list but did ensure that you never fell below permanent B list.
