Today's Blind Items - Then And Now

This former A list co-star of a long-running NBC drama from the 90s was always known for being sexy and classy. Recently she was at a trendy L.A. eatery shoveling down not one, not two, but three huge cheese and fixing-laden salads as though she were eating for two. She isn't. For her eating frenzy that day she wore baggy gray sweats and yellow sneakers. After eating and paying, the tired-looking actress got up unsteadily from her table and let out two huge burps. She then staggered to her Volvo station wagon before driving off, leaving witnesses stunned.

Kirstie Alley (sp?)

Drama... 90s... ER... One of the ladies from ER.

Lillian said...

heather locklear

MontanaMarriott said...

One of the ladies from Law and Order, Jill Hennesey?

sunnyside1213 said...

Sad.

FC said...

Melrose Place was on Fox, so not Heather Locklear.

MacVixen said...

Please not Jill Hennessey. I always loved her for some reason. I think someone from ER is a good guess. Julianna M. still looks pretty good. Maura T had breast cancer, right? Is there a different show that's a possibility?

kathrynnova said...

hee hee. i love it. but i have no idea.

Heather Lillywhite said...

If it had been a show from the 80's, I'd have guessed Cybil Shepherd...LOL

maggiemei said...

Sherry Stringfield from ER?

Ice Angel said...

She was an A-list star in the 90's. Let her be...she deserves it. At least she's eating salad! LOL!

Cecilia00 said...

maggiemei - Good guess. I was trying to figure out who it could be but couldn't come up with a name beyong Juliana Marguiles who is on a CBS drama currently, so I ruled her out.

rhinovirus said...

Melissa Leo was on Homicide Life on the Street.

bflogurl said...

Pamela Anderson- Baywatch

princessd said...

What about Kim Delaney - she was on NYPD Blue

M said...

"Sister's" was a big drama on NBC in the early 90's and ran for six seasons. Sela Ward was known for being sexy and classy (though, so was Swoozie Kurtz). Though Sela's character wasn't exactly 'classy' on the show, I can't tell if Enty is refering to the actress as being sexy and classy or the character she played.

I would think with a Volvo station wagon, she has kids, though maybe older?

Sean said...

Susan Dey, from LA Law?

B626 said...

Janine Turner from Northern Exposure

Bethany said...

Who cares? I think it's refreshing to hear about a female star who is actually EATING.

selenakyle said...

No idea.

***To all seasoned CDAN peeps:

This is OT, but where has Harriet Hellfire gone?

I asked about her one other time and don't recall any responses (I don't do any FB or other social media, sorry).

Just wondering b/c I don't recall seeing her comments in a long time and she was funny and smart.

Thanks!

selenakyle said...

Oh, and the sweats were probably her throwing-up clothes. (the Blind, not HH)

roxy said...

I can't wait for the reveal of this one.

travelin' sue ann said...

Kellie Martin from ER.

ms_goddess said...

I can't come up with anything that hasn't been said already, although I think maybe "tired-looking" may be a clue...

Selenakyle - Harriet Hellfire is still here, but posting under another name - "Maja. With a J." I think. I remember this being discussed previously. (Maybe answering your previous post after you had already checked out?)

*** said...

@ ms_goodness and Selenakyle

do you know anything about Molly or Ernestine? Or have I just not noticed them posting.

*** said...

p.s. and also "Lutefish/not a famous adrian"

brendalove@gmail.com said...

Eating disorder.

MadLyb said...

Sounds like something I'd do - except I'd burp behind my hand and giggle. (No, not really). I guess when an actress actually eats and has the balls to do it in public, it's news, or a delicious blind item. No pun intended, and none taken, I'm sure.

Liz said...

I also was thinking Sela Ward from Sisters. Is it possible the headline-Then and Now is a reference to her show Once and Again? Okay, I may be stretching it!

selenakyle said...

Ah, thanks, ms_goddess! Seen her plenty of times, then.

Hey HH! I am not stalking you!

(in my job I'm with strangers for months at a time so CDAN is my favorite friend/social outlet-replacement system)

@***, I though someone got huffy with Ernestine or vice-versa at one time, not sure. And I think Lutefisk might go between different names sometimes.

My brain is fried. No idea, basically. You all are far more helpful than I could ever be, that's for damn sure!

Gypsy said...

Someone ate three salads? With cheese??????? Oh. AND burped??? Hm. Must be a slow day for blinds.

Tigercat said...

sela ward is on csi:ny and she still looks great. so i'm not convinced it's her.

Anotheramy said...

Here is a list of Golden Globe nominees and winners. The show would have to be a hit in order for the co-star to be A list.

hunter said...

Just because she did this doesn't mean she looks bad underneath the sweats...chances are she will go home and throw it up.

What about that nasty girl from PROFILER...beautiful, drop dead gorgeous, but behind the scenes was a total witch to everyone she worked with...

The Help said...

Lara Flynn Boyle?

Brainy said...

Markie Post

RJ said...

Susan Dey has been public with her struggles with anorexia and bulemia, but LA Law was during the 80s, not the 90s. The biggest dramas on NBC during the 90s were ER and Sisters. I'd look to the stars of those shows. All that being said, what's the big deal about this? Eating three salads is a bit strange, but once I thought about it, I hit the salad bar at Jason's Deli pretty hard about once a month myself. It would seem to some that I'm eating a huge amount of food, even though it's not a huge number of calories. Also, that's my big meal that day. Dinner after a salad bar pigout is usually soup or sometimes cereal. This woman doesn't necessarily have a problem. I look tired sometimes, too. You know, when I'm tired.

Madeline said...

How or more importantly *why* is this a blind gossip item? And why should anyone care? Someone ate. Wow. Reading this blind and then seeing people ponder who it could be, whether they wore sweats to they could throw up, etc., disappoints me, really. And we wonder why people have weight issues.

lutefisk said...

Selenakyle, I am still here. I only use Lutefisk when I post, nothing else. I have had some personal problems taking up much of my time lately, so I have been reading, but not posting.

addaloria said...

Stockard Channing from ‘The West Wing’?

Monica said...

I agree, this shouldn't even be a blind. Wow, someone ate three salads and then burped.

The only thing that caught my interest when it said she's not eating for two. The only way someone would REALLY know that is if the woman is 50+, beyond fertility. So that may be a clue, that the woman is in her 50s or 60s.

selenakyle said...

Take care, Lutefisk, and be well! Glad lots of the older CDAN peeps are around. I've only been on since I think late '06 or whenever Enty Blinded about the older male movie star who called Enty late-night b/c he took too much Viagra...that Blind hooked me, whenever it was!). Funny, blinds like that back then seemed obvious that Enty is in fact an EntLawyer... I don't question it these days nor really care, but it made me just now ralize a definite difference in the subject matter of the Blinds.

Whatever, I am up wayyyy late bullshitting around on the dang internet instead of working...

Maidstone said...

Again - OT - I was wondering the same thing about Harriet Hellfire and why she changed her name. Loved that pseudonym. Harriet - why did you change your name?

And back on topic - I think it's Susan Dey for this blind item, too.

S said...

Angie Harmon. Law and Order. Totally.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

OT, but I kind of miss W.E.Dubois. Whenever I see that name post it makes me smile. I want to ask him/her if they are part of the "Talented Tenth"?

RocketQueen said...

Yeah, I don't get the big deal about this either, but for some reason, Sherry Stringfield occurred to me.

Jamie's Girl said...

Sherri Stringfield has weight struggles. But honestly, a salad, it is still a salad, people. Now if she ate 3 burgers, yes.

kathrynnova said...

did they mention what kind of cheese? more interested in that than the celebrity's identity.

goat cheese? feta cheese? gorgonzola? or was it just that crappy shredded monterey jack?

this is very important.

rdmtimp said...

@The Help - Lara Flynn Boyle wasn't on any NBC shows in the 90's (she was on Twin Peaks and The Practice, both of which were on ABC).
