Today's Blind Items

It's rare that I ever hear something that will make me fall out of my chair. First of all, I generally am jammed into chairs and my body can't break free even if it wanted to. Second of all, I have heard everything so nothing really surprises me. Friday night that changed. I was having a pleasant dinner when the person next to me said, guess who is gay. Well, it would be easier to guess who isn't gay, but I said I didn't know. They then said the name of this married, foreign born, former A list female singer and sometime actress who will always have A list name recognition. I had never even heard a peep she was. A gay right supporter for sure, but gay? Absolutely 100%.

gloria estefan ?

Annie said...

Olivia Newton-John

J said...

celine dion?

shakey said...

Celine Dion isn't an actress. I could go with Olivia Newton-John.

Emobacca said...

Gloria was my immediate guess as well

chopchop said...

Is ON-J married though?

Patty said...

That MIA guy was her boyfriend, not husband. I saw that she is married now, though.

JW said...

I like the Olivia Newton John guess. She is married. I think she is more well known as an actress than Estefan - "A" list for singing and really well known for Grease. Just appeared in Glee.

nancer said...

estefan was my first thought because she is most definitely, 100% a lesbian. i know someone who was in her band for years.

Cheryl said...

The only rumors about Gloria Estefan have been about her husband having the music version of a casting couch, but never heard gay rumors about her. I know they met when she was a teenager and she was a virgin when they married. I'm going with Gloria on this. There have been gay rumors about Celine and ONJ isn't gay but it wouldn't make you fall out of your chair.

JW said...

Also, ONJ is very big on gay rights. Was grand marshall of a Pride parade a few years back.

Liz said...

Celine Dion?

Cheryl said...

Oh and Rosie O'Donnell had Gloria on as a co-host of her show once which was really weird. That doesn't make you gay but the show was strange in a what are they doing kind of way.

Shmooey said...

Celine Dion hasn't acted, or has she? That would surprise me.

Gloria Estefan would be mind blowing.

pnelope18 said...

I remember years ago, (I would say 20) there were rumors about Olivia Newton John's sexuality.

Ice Angel said...

When has Gloria acted?

Jamie's Girl said...

ONJ was supposedly gay years ago, in the 80's. So I wouldn't think much about that. I'm having to think of someone else.

Barbara Streisand is US Born. Celine Dion is still A++ and not an actress.

CZJ is not a singer by profession, although she did Chicago.

katie said...

cher???
she has done acting

Ellin said...

Cher was born in El Centro, CA... NOT Cher...

amazonblue said...

My first thought was Annie Lennox, but she's not currently married.

Ditto on questioning Gloria Estefan's acting credentials.

Olivia Newton John is fall off your chair worthy.

Ice Angel said...

ONJ is not married

I guess Gloria is a sometime actress according to Wikipedia. But was she ever A-list? In my book, yes, but A-list?

Gloria Estefans acting credits:
For love or country, The Arturo Sandovol story, 2000 TV,
Maria in Frasier, 1 episode 2000
Something about Dr Mary, voice TV 2000
Music of the heart, 1999
The hypnotic world of Paul McKenna 1 episode 1993
Club med 1985 TV

I think we have a possible winner

Booster Seat said...

Celine Dion has acted according to Wikipedia but I dunno how accurate their stuff is...

Filmography:

Touched by an Angel
The Nanny
All My Children
La fureur de CĂ©line
Des fleurs sur la neige

Don't count her out yet.

nancer said...

i think estefan was A list back in the day for sure.

i really didn't know this was news about her. her marriage is a friendship/business arrangement. the kids weren't conceived the old fashioned way.
she's gay----not that there's anything wrong with that.

ONJ would be bigger news to me.

Barton Fink said...

My doubts about Gloria Estafan are that she and her husband have been subjected to a lot of "Are they gay?" gossip for years and years, so I don't think anyone would be shocked if you told them that she had a girlfriend or two. I remember living in Miami Beach in the late 90s when Paulina Rubio got into a fistfight in a restaurant because she saw a woman that had been sleeping with her girlfriend. Her husband had to pull them apart, but they broke a table. I don't think Gloria would even be ashamed if she wanted a woman. Miami is just different -- no shame, no reason!

Lulu

*Miss_P* said...

Sheena Easton

maggiemei said...

How about Kylie Minogue?

JJ said...

What would be a real shocker is Bette Midler, who fits except for the foreign born part.

Jessica said...

There has got to be someone we are forgetting. Enty said he had never heard a peep about this person being gay before - that right there eliminates ONJ and Gloria both - there have been rumors of both.

I'm leaning towards Celine, that would truly be shocking.

Still trying to think of someone else though.

Jessica said...

Victoria Beckham? She admits she is not a good singer, but at the height of Spice Girl popularity... could she have been considered A-list? Would explain the comment that she "will always have A list name RECOGNITION". I just checked IMDB and she was on Ugly Betty and also had that reality show Beckhams coming to America and has a bunch of other bit parts on TV shows, and a part in Zoolander.

RJ said...

If she's married, my guess is Aylanis Morrisette (sorry 'bout the bad spelling). Born in Canada and has done some acting. No one would fall out of their chair to hear that Gloria E. is a lesbian. Morrisette's album was one of the biggest successes of her generation of singers so the former A-list, but with A-list recognition clue fits, too. She's also been outspoken in her support of gay rights.

Jessi said...

Cyndi Lauper?

Luxie_poo said...

Paulina Rubio is def gay or bi-sexual. I knew her girlfriend, she was a beautiful VJ for MTV Latino, Eglantina Zingg.

Sis Cesspool said...

I was thinking Kylie Minogue, too.

valerie said...

Kylie Minogue isn't married, so she's out. (no pun intended!). I like the Celine guess but she's not a sometime actress...Enty has said that a few guest appearances don't count.

valerie said...

Charo!

Nicole said...

I'm not sure how shocking it would be, but I like the Cyndi Lauper guess. She's acted (badly, IMO), and she was huge in the '80s. She's been married to the same guy forever, and she does that True Colors Tour (yearly, maybe? Not sure about that) for LGBT rights.

Jess said...

Gloria Stefan is a great guess! she was really big in the anglo industry and she's still big in the Latin community.

BA said...

Alanis Morrissete isn't married, I don't think.

ChasingHeaven said...

Alanis admitted on Howard Stern's show that she's been with women so I think that disqualifies her.

I guess I'm an idiot because I had always assumed Gloria was gay, I didn't even realize she was married. Wasn't she running around with Rosie O. in Miami on Kathy Griffin's show...?

Is Whitney foreign born?

califblondy said...

I believe Olivia got married quietly a while back.

Maybe some of you don't think it's shocking, but I'd be very surprised if it's Gloria.

blondegossip said...

Off topic, but B Murphy's brother made some scathing statements about Monjack's death--"2 of 3 people living in that house have died"; "the truth about what was going on in there will come out"; says B's mom went along with everything Monjack wanted, etc.

nancer said...

the guy who was in gloria's band said she thought it would hurt her with the latino community. that's why she's never come out. but he also said a lot of people know about it.

can't be alanis. she wouldn't care and would say so if she was gay.

Tenley said...

I have no idea but it can't be Olivia Newton John, I mean there weren't just peeps and rumours that she's gay I truly thought she had actually come out, I mean she did come out didn't she? That's how basically out she is/was/has been. Can't be her

mazemerizing said...

Showing my age, but I seem to recall a gazillion years ago Olivia Newton-John saying something about her bisexuality on the Johnny Carson show. Anybody else remember that? So, wouldn't be a surprise if she came out. I can't imagine if Cindy Lauper was gay that she wouldn't admit it since she is so pro gay rights. More likely it's Estefan, who would hide it from her Latino community and fans.

Jo said...

I really think it could be Posh.

Angela said...

How could anybody be surprised if it was Olivia Newton-John? She was a guest star on "Glee". On "Glee"!! You can count the straight guest stars on one hand...

Ms.Leigh said...

damn i wish jlo was foreign born!

if not her, then i'd have say posh. it's be amazing if her and becks were bearding for eachother.

gloria

Karyn said...

I think read somewhere that ONJ has an adopted daughter who is gay.

MCH said...

Woah....juicy!!!!

The Gloria guess is an interesting one!

parissucksliterally said...

hey JJ, Bette was born in Hawaii in the mid- 1940's, which was before it became a state. Technically, she IS foreign born!

I like your guess.

Karyn said...

c17 said...

Thalia?

She's A-list in the Latino community & is married to Tommy Mottola. Was also an actress.

Goodgrief said...

Julie Andrews, I know she doesn't sing much anymore because of her vocal cord issues.She can't hit those high notes anymore. So that could make her a former A-list singer. I always got a gay vibe from her.

AwkwardBird said...

could j-lo be the person?

Barton Fink said...

@Goodgrief, "The hills are alive, with the sound of ... lesbianism?" lol

Goodgrief said...

@awkwardbird, no it is not JLo because she is not foreign born. She was born in the bronx.

BA said...

Wasn't Bette Midler the popular guess for the Hollywood couple who advertised for a new maid to also be the 3rd in their relationship? Not that this would make her gay.

Basil said...

I like the Posh guess, and she fits every part except the "sometime actress". Bette Midler is also a good guess, but would she really give a shit if people thought she was gay enough to keep it this much of a secret?

GladysKravitz said...

I was guessing Bette Midler too--and then I looked her up and saw that she was born in Hawaii. Not to be a birther, Hawaii wasn't a state in 1945. So I agree with JJ and Parissucksliterally--I'm officially betting on Bette.

delcodave said...

I like the Julie Andrews guess. That's my vote

Henriette said...

I like the Julie Andrews guess. She is married to that pig Blake Edwards. Did he die? I think Bette Midler would be a stretch, because Hawaii was owned by the U.S. in 1945. It was akin to Puerto Rico back then. Bette Midler was a U.S. citizen akin to John McCain being born in the Panama Canal, which was U.S. owned.

libby said...

Guys, Julie Andrews is an Oscar-winning actress who sings, not a singer who "sometimes" acts.

Icecat said...

I'm heading for the Olivia Newton John train. I'm racking my head on where, but I could've sworn I read that she got married recently. I was shocked because of the whole husband disappearing bit, only to find out he is alive and in Mexico... Something is strange there... AND, has no one see the movie "Sordid Lives"?? She was awseome in it. If you haven't, it is a really funny movie and worth the watch!! (not that, that means she is gay, but a funny movie)

Here are some other guesses that this might be:

Nelly Furtado
Kate Bush
Sinead O'Connor

I do have so say that NONE of these guesses would make me fall off my chair...

Goodgrief said...

Here is an article from People on ONJ marriage.

http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20210466,00.html

Discobitch said...

Sinead O'Connor has been out for years so it cant be her!!

Dolly Parton fits apart from the foreign born part!!

Shirley Bassey? is she famous in the US? not too sure if she's still married

Icecat said...

If she did get "secretly Married" it could be:

SHAKIRA

Just sayin'... it's a really slow work morning for me :P

sunnyside1213 said...

I think you are a citizen if you are born in a US territory?

Someone Said said...

Now sure on her acting resume but what about Shania Twain?

Icecat said...

I was thinking Shania, but didn't her divorce go through already?

Dean said...

Charlotte Church

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

It's 5/25, is anyone else having trouble getting into Dlisted?

The Cocoanut Grove said...

Julie Andrews and her hubby Blake Edwards have had tons of gay rumours in the past.

MCH said...

@Little Miss Smoke & Mirrors
No, I was just on there a second ago...

Icecat said...

@Little Miss

Nope. I've been on and off all morning. Just checked now and it loaded right up...

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Thanks guys, my browser has choked on a couple different sites now. It's obviously something on my end.

sunnyside1213 said...

Julie Andrews would be a shocker to me.

bloodonthescreen said...

Bjork?

bloodonthescreen said...

I got tired of looking.

Henriette said...

Julie Andrews will always be A-list because of the Sound of Music. All the others would not be. I like the Shakira guess, but she does not fit the all the clues. Julie Andrews would be SHOCKING.

Anna said...

Cyndi Lauper was born in Brooklyn.

Levi Watson Azia said...

Alannis

Katja said...

I thought Julie Andrews and Carol Burnett where an open secret.

Katja said...

were, not where- sorry!

lollydarling said...

Yes, to chime in, there have been Julie Andrews and Carol Burnett rumours since the dawn of time (also Candice Bergen-connected stories too). This wouldn't be a shock to anyone in LGBT circles, surely?

Peggy said...

Yes, mazemerizing, ON-J did go on Johnny Carson's show years ago (it had to be years ago, of course) before Johnny married his third wife. ON-J was drunk as a skunk. She told Carson that one night with Carson's fiancee and ON-J would turn Carson's fiancee gay. Cut to commercial and no more ON-J. So, it ain't her. We all knew already.

Dana said...

Shania Twain? born in Canada?

Saz said...

Gloria is my guess. It sounds like it fits with her. Alanis wouldn't surprise anyone is she was bi. I'd be shocked if she wasn't bi. Whoever guessed Celine is crazy. She's all rainbows and butterflies in love with Renee. I also wouldn't call Julie Andrews a "sometimes" actress, given movies and stage theatre is all she's done lately.

d=listed guessed Charo

Willa said...

What about Kylie Minogue? She meets all the qualifications.

J said...

@Saz

How is any guess "crazy"? You don't know the answer unless you're Enty so how can you discredit anything? Snobby guessers are the worst.

How do YOU know if they're really in love or not?

The more-so this news would make one fall out of their chair per your theory.

kintups2005 said...

Not sure if this is about Shania Twain, but she is defo gay or bi. I know someone who she employed for a short time who said she was travelling with her gf.

Robert said...

Speaking of Julie Andrews, does anybody remember Victor/Victoria? Julie plays a woman impersonating a man impersonating a woman (a drag queen, actually) in the gay theaters of 1930's Paris. A case of life imitating art, or vice versa?

Icecat said...

I'm kind of liking the Charo guess!! She fits.

happy said...

I was thinking Shakira or Posh dont know why, but Celine Dion would be shocking as well but Shania Twain would make me fall out my chair.

Saz said...

@ J, Lainey blogs a lot about Celine. I'm going to guess that she has more insider knowledge about Canadian stars given her position in the media and connections. Sorry you seem to feel I'm "snobby" for disagreeing with you, though. :)
