Blind Item

This host of an A+ network reality show and producer and radio guy was at a club two weeks ago. At the club he started making out with some random woman he had been flirting with. Apparently most people were shocked not that he was cheating on his D list celebrity girlfriend, but that he was actually making out with a woman.

Obvious. Ryan Seacrest.

RocketQueen said...

I know a lot of people here complained about the pictures, Enty, but for what it's worth, *I* liked them. In case it's a voting issue :)

Oh, and Ryan Seacrest!

Carrie L. said...

Wow, don't need many brain cells for this one. Ryan.

I'm with you RocketQueen, I also miss the pics greatly...

Maja. With a J. said...

Haha, it's not even a blind, it's more like a somewhat nearsighted item...*L* Gaycrest FTW!

Jennifer said...

Way to disprove those gay rumors, Ryan. Make out with a woman in public. When was the last time Seacrest and Hough were seen in public together? I think before the Oscars.

mngddess said...

Talk about a thinly veiled blind....

I liked the photos, too - but not of any Lohans. Or Parasite Hilton. Or the Jersey Shore people.

caralw said...

Why is this a blind item? LOL.

Err said...

I just wanted to chyme in that I want the pictures back too! I just figured he has been too busy to post them.

silenttype said...

Howard Stern also fits, somewhat, or at least a little.

MizCaramel said...

I want the pics back too... I didn't realize there was an issue, I figured Enty was too busy to post them these days... I've resorted to KneePads to get my picture fix *hangs head in shame*.

RocketQueen said...

I think all the complaints about the photos finally got to him. Maybe if enough of us say we DO want them, he'll bring them back!

@mngoddess - to be fair, I complained about the Kardashian pics a lot, but I like the rest :)

Nosey Parker said...

ITA that it's Ryan Seacrest.

If it's not raining (April Fools Day) I'll be at The Today Show plaza holding a small Yosemite sign. I'm going to NY to see Elton John on Jimmy Fallon and Chris Rock on Broadway.

MizCaramel said...

Well then let me just start by saying "I want the photos back Enty" now I will go post on his facebook.

xoApril said...

Seacrest, out!

Sarah said...

I suck at guessing blind items (I go totally blank when I read them) - so when even *I* know who it is, you know it is an easy one!

Add me to the list of people who really miss the photos. I looked forward to them every day - & the funny comments made them even more fun!

signed years (& years) long reader, first time poster

nunaurbiz said...

I thought he was just too busy on the photos, too, not that there was some issue. Seems like he usually announces when there's some kind of change in the format, like with FFF

Catherine said...

Not to mention, the photos were clues to the blinds. Or at least they used to be.

califblondy said...

Have fun, Nosey. I've been on twice during the holidays and froze my butt off for a few seconds on the tube.

I'm turrbull at blinds, but I think I might finally know one! Woohoo. Poor Juliane Hough. It must suck to get a famous, career-boosting (and Gay) boyfriend only to lose him to another woman.

She should have stuck with DWTS.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

LOL! You might have well included a picture!

amazonblue said...

Pictures cost $$$ folks. I think Enty is channeling funds from photos to the radio show.

I miss them too.

califblondy said...

P.S. I want the pix back too.

bflogurl said...

I really miss the photos too.. so if you were one of the whinebags that complained... YOU SUCK!!!

Melanie said...

I miss the photos too, as well as Full Frontal Friday. Bring them both back Enty please!

Jessica said...

Apparently I missed the announcement? Anyone care to share? I assume there was one because of the people referencing complaints and people chimining in that they want them back.

SkittleKitty said...

Did people really complain about the photos? Booooo! I miss them too.

I might enjoy the radio show, but I don't have time to listen.... :(

mirandaLP said...

There was no annoucement about photos. Mooshkie just assumed that's why Enty stopped them. In all likelihood it's probably a money issue given that it's been over a year since he last renewed the licensing fees.

delilah said...

this blog is changing and unfortunately it doesnt look for the better.
what's happening enty!?!

p m said...

I want the pictures back!

RocketQueen said...

Mooshki isn't the only one that thinks that's what happened, mirandaLP.

@Jessica - there was no announcement, but things seem to be pretty much back to normal except for the photos, and there were a LOT of complaints in the comments before they stopped, so that's what I think happened. No, I'm not sure, but if I were Enty and everyone were complaining and I was spending money on them, I might stop, too :(

Klondyke said...

you can count me in as someone who could do withOUT the pics. i come here for the blinds, and i wonder what's going on with the radio show. i did listen on podcast.

Wendy said...

I loved the photos too!

mirandaLP said...

Enty wasn't spending money on the photos, the photos were paid for using donated money from the readers, that's the whole point. It was over a year ago and it's likely the fees have to be renewed. That seems like the most likely reason to me. He's probably just trying to figure out a way to get the money together in the meantime, so just give it a bit of time. I'm sure he'll let everyone know what's happening soon.

Piper said...

I dont think this is Enty's site anymore. I am sure a girl is doing most of the writing now-s-days. Format is all different now so is the tone and style. Notice now the stories are all re-heated TMZ or Radar? Where is the days of old?

elaine said...

2006/2007 were the glory days of this blog. there was only one set of pics and it sufficed.

go back and read the 06 and 07 years.

thisoldbroad said...

I miss the pictures too.

Had the most interesting dream that there was a radio show also. Since no one has mentioned it, I feel like Pam did when realized she'd slept through a couple seasons of Dallas & Bobby's death. I was pretty excited about the radio show.

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

I miss the pictures, too... :-(

kelly said...

Put me down on the I Miss The Pics side :)

Jessica said...

Maybe someone could email Enty and ask him about the pictures instead of all the speculation?
From previously having a blog, I don't think many people realize the work involved unless you blog yourself. You start out all excited and enthusiastic, then you come to a point where you realize you have to do it every. single. day. over and over. The same shit. And you kind of start feeling like you need a break. Then if you do take a break, you don't want to come back. Maybe Enty is going through some "I need a break for a little while" stuff.
But anyway, someone just ask him about the pictures please!

Astrid said...

I vote for the pics too. :)

Char said...

One of my favorite parts of the blog, is not necessarily the pics, but the comments on the pics. I love Enty's wry humor. Bring back the pics! (please) :-)

eve said...

Jessica, I certainly do understand.

Dijea said...

I miss the old CDAN myself. Sigh, I know it's moving up but I like it better the old way.

BRING IT BACK RETRO, retro is in you know.

MizUndaStood said...

I miss the pictures too.

I looked forward to them every weekday. Loved the comments Enty wrote under them and the reader comments too. Cdan has the best reader comments :)

I started reading gossip blogs as a way to quit smoking (it worked, yay me) I followed a link here from Dlisted and was hooked by the pictures. That was in 2007. This blog was soooo different from all the others. I've noticed the writing style has changed lately too. Funny how we have all picked up on that.

I really hope Enty is ok. I find it odd that he hasn't mentioned anything about the changes or the lack of the radio show in the past two weeks other than to say he had a virus...then nothing...just the obvious ghost writer...@mr or ms ghost writer, is our Enty ok? Will he be back?

I don't care for the radio show. At this point in my life I don't have the time for it. I tried to listen the first week and I kept getting interrupted. I get to read the blog while I watch tv with the family, or from my phone when I am bringing my kids here, there, and everywhere. It's my calgon moment.

Oh, and I really miss FFF ;-)

kympossible said...

Did 2 radio shows cost $3000? If you ask people to give you money and promise something in return, you are a cheat and a liar when you don't follow through. Add to that the lack of any comment or reason for not delivering, and you are a snake as well. But please, continue to make excuses and kiss this loser's ass. It's like watching a documentary about brainwashed, religious cult members. I can't get enough!

KiKi said...

LOVE the pictures .... Enty, for the comlainers, they can just skip through them. You are the BEST; don't let any negative comments get to you.

parissucksliterally said...

Seacrest- did he throw up after?

I detest that man. i used to like him, but he is responsible for the Kardashian's fame. I am now convinced he is the Devil.

FS said...

the wadded up napkin on the desk next to my computer thinks this 'blind' is Ryan Seacrest.

Daphnie V. said...

First time poster, long time reader...

I miss the pictures too...a lot!

And this is so obv. Ryan, lol

fairylights said...

I never, ever get these and even I can figure out it's Seacrest.

I miss the pictures too, I just figured that ENT was to busy to get to it.

Gabby said...

wow Enty thanks for the obvious one but could you reveal one a little juicier? We all know Seacrest is gay and Julianne is just hanging on him for publicity.

Nosey Parker said...

The White Irish Drinkers story (yesterday) sounded like Enty. I'm an optimist and hope it's a sign that the CDAN we all miss from 2006-2007 might come back again. I'd give up photos and be happy with less posts if Enty brought back his old story telling style.

Paisley said...

I miss the photos and don't believe it has anything to do with photo licensing since there are pictures on the other posts that would also fall under that category.

The overall quality of this blog has changed dramatically over the last two months. I don't know who is doing the writing, but it's not the same person as 2010. And that writer wasn't the same person from a few years ago.

mirandaLP said...

I think he was really expecting the radio show to take off, and that he'd make his (our) money back eventually.
And I agree kympossible, well said.

Keisha said...

I am pretty sure Seacrest himself wrote this blind!

joymichelle said...

EASIEST. BLIND. EVER.

Aly said...

Enty is not Enty.

I don't know who it is but someone is attempting to copy his style.

Remember shimmy? Nuff said.

Aly said...

Elizabeth Taylor died. You mean Enty didn't have a ton of good stories to tell. She and Burton tore up the world. Taylor going nuts for the enormously endowed Warner. She sold a diamond for his campaign. There must be a ton of dirt out there.

ms_goddess said...

Aly, the "Timmy/Shimmy" blind is the one that sucked me into the CDan community. I literally stayed up all night long to catch up on it. Thank goodness I was on vacation!

Oh, and I'm also one of those who doesn't usually guess the blinds correctly, but I was thinking of Gaycrest before I even finished reading!

Selock said...

Funny.

Barton Fink said...

As a gay man, let me say: Thank you God! Having Ryan Seacrest as an ostensible member of the tribe was painful and humiliating. Now that he's a macho straight man, I can feel happier about this universe.

Selock said...

NO! We don't want him on our team either (I say as a straight woman).

tina said...

I'd say the blog has been changing for about the last 6 months-to a year. I think he had someone filling in and helping him, and then just transferred it over to her full time 2-3 months ago. I think it is "Carly" and maybe he was trying to help her get the radio thing off the ground as well.

What REALLY annoys me though, is that he/she doesn't just say so. It could be as simple as:

"Wow! who knew the blog would take off like this? In order to keep up the pace, I'm going to bring in some advertisers and hire some writers to help out and keep posts, blinds and pics coming all day long. You guys have been great- thanks so much for the support through this growth!"

But instead, they think they are fooling us by throwing in the occasional "bacon" "basement" and "ex-wives" references. And serving up rehashed TMZ and Radar posts like a poster above said.

I miss the pictures, too. Please bring them back Enty!

MCH said...

@Nosey Parker - I'm jealous of your upcoming trip. Maybe I'll see you on Fallon.

I liked the photos. They were unique from other blogs (who tend to do Random links to pictures or articles; lots of clicking-> annoying).

ms snarky said...

I also miss the pics. But what really bothers me is the obvious fact that it's a completely different voice on the site. Meaner, and rehashing other sites. Nothing really original beyond some of the kindnesses. The meanness of the straight items is what is really surprising to me. I miss the old days! But, sadly, you can't turn back time.

I tried to listen to the radio show, but honestly, I was bored and quit after giving it a try for two shows. I was bummed, a little.

Fawn Neun said...

I'm the only one thinking Ricky Gervais, aren't I?

empyrios said...

Blog fail.

Jesse D said...

I miss the photos, too. They educated me on who's who. This was pretty much my sole gossip site. Now I have to go elsewhere. Blech.

Opulent1 said...

Ryan Seacrest...sooo obvious!

caralw said...

I have to agree that the radio show was boring and a waste of time. Granted, I only made it through the first 15 minutes of the first one. I couldn't be bothered to continue wasting my time.

I think more attention should be paid to the blog as opposed to the radio show. Perhaps Enty et al (and yes, it does seem like he's not alone in this endeavor) should re-evaluate their priorities. I got sucked in by MV and also Timmy/Shimmy. Those were the days.

caralw said...

And while I'm at it, how hard would it be to make it so you didn't have to type www in front of the URL. Not hard at all. ;-)

*girl said...

I was so obsessed with MV. I also got tickets through Enty to see a show... I do miss old Enty.

I will not read Perez but I do recall when everyone started realizing he had ghost writers and backlashed. I don't want the same thing to happen to this site.

Look at Celebitchy as an example - it's clear who is writing each post. Maybe bring in a team of like minded bloggers?

Jennifer said...

Bring back the pics!

Syd said...

I never complained, but I always skipped the pics. Kinda glad they are gone.

Big-Assed Sal said...

carli does not interest me, and i hope that she is not writing this blog. isn't she some failed actress?

Big-Assed Sal said...

i can tolerate one set of photos, but not three.

caralw said...

I don't understand why he would eliminate photos because of complaints? It's not that hard to skip them. I'm guessing there's more to it.

crila16 said...

I never thought of Ryan as gay or straight. I always thought he was A-sexual. I also read a BV a while back that was basically revealed that it was Ryan and he was not interested in sex with men or women.

Piper said...

Syd, and the others who didn't like the photos..... There was a reason for them that many might not have realized. Enty would semi reveal blinds or hints in the snide remarks attached to the photos (or even just squeezing in a photo unbeknown of the blind her/himself, just to set up your subconscious). You'd just have to pay attention and read the words rather then just scroll past them. They were a treat if you knew how to enjoy them.

Anna said...

I miss the photos too. Talk about the perfect thing to get you through that 2:00 feeling at work!! *sigh*

Tempestuous Grape said...

@Tina - I think you hit it right on the nose.

KLM said...

ITA with @Tina, too... It's like just come out and say it already. I am really sick of the writing lately and barely visit this blog anymore. It used to be funny and snarky and have awesome blinds (MV and coke mom being some of my favs). I hate the bacon references these days - you aren't fooling anyone. I feel like most CDAN readers are pretty witty and intelligent.

Sylvia said...

LOL@Barton F.

mirandaLP said...

He DID NOT get rid of the photos because of complaints guys, that's just Mooshkie et al trying to shift the blame back to the readers. He either can't afford them / doesn't have time I bet.

Barton Fink said...

@Selock, You made me realize how cruel and heartless my joy was. Maybe Ryan Seacrest is asexual and playing for no one's teams -- that would be a win-win sitch!

blankprincess said...

mirandaLP:

First, I would like to ask you to try to get the spelling of Mooshki's name correct (you messed it up in both of your comments) so that you have a chance of being taken seriously by the other readers here. Or are you perhaps deliberately misspelling it to display your obvious disdain for her? I'm not saying that you *are* doing it on purpose, but I certainly wouldn't put passive-aggressive behavior like that past many of the folks who currently comment on this blog.

Second, if Mooshki posited a theory about why the pictures have gone by the wayside, how is that any different from what you have done? You two may not agree on why the pictures are gone, but you both have presented logical arguments and you should both be respected for stating your *opinions* on the matter. The truth is that we readers do not have--and likely never will have--the real explanation, so why bother speculating? ESPECIALLY when your speculation occurs in the very same breath that you shoot down someone else's speculation...

I just don't get it.

anita_mark said...

I don't miss the pictures. I always wished they would be on a separate page and you had the option of seeing them. They took a long time to load on my work computer, take up data if I look at it on my phone (when wifi isn't enabled), etc. One set would be ok but three or four?

I don't mind the quality of writing. I've been coming here off and on for a few years and I've noticed now things are spelled right/proofread, etc. Most of the time.

I had to leave Celebitchy and find a new permanent gossip home. That site has turned into "Actress Name - OMG she's such a bitch, let's hate her" posts.
