Sam Elliot's Wife Gets Restraining Order Against Daughter


I love when new people get involved in gossip and tabloids. Sam Elliot's wife has filed a restraining order against their daughter. Katherine says her daughter Cleo stabbed her during a fight last week. Their daughter also threatened to kill her. I'm guessing Cleo had finally just watched Stepford Wives in which her mom stars. Probably wanted her money back.

spoiled brat what is she still doing living at home sucking off mom & dad's bank account.

Go out get a job and grow up.

califblondy said...

And I always thought they were the one "normal" Hollywood family.

amoteafloat said...

Ditto what Starbuck said.

I thought the name Cleo was reserved for fake television psychics & dogs...I knew the cutest dog named Cleo when I lived in Venice. Oh honey.

Sylvia said...

I read last week this story. They also said that they have had problems with her since she was 12-13 (I believe).

jax said...

restraining order? how about attempted murder?

ms snarky said...

I don't understand why Katherine Ross, a well-respected actress in her own right, is referred to as "Sam Elliott's wife."

What is this, 1930? We get to use our own names now, Enty!

amoteafloat said...

Ms. Snarky makes an excellent point. Katherine WAS in a little flick called The Graduate, in addition to The Stepford Wives.

ellie said...

why is this headlined Sam Elliot's wife?? isn't Katherine Ross famous in her own right? Stepford Wives! Butch Cassidy! The Graduate!!

SkittleKitty said...

Yes, she's a good (former, it would seem) actress, but I wouldn't know the name Katherine Ross from Adam. (And I generally recognize many actors by name.)
I think "Sam Elliot's wife" is acceptable for this mention, with the details below (the Enty leaves off Ross).

ms snarky said...

Calling Katherine Ross "Sam Elliott's wife" really did tick me off. I don't think a woman has officially been her husband's property since the 1700's. And it was a pretty evil concept no matter when it ended.

Seriously, Enty! That was just wrong!

Patty said...

These two have been married forever! Good for them. Hope they can fix the problem with the kid.

ms snarky said...

@Skittle - you've never seen The Graduate? Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid? Stepford Wives was the least of her many roles.

Surely you can't demote Katherine Ross to the status of just being some old actor's wife. She's just as famous as he is/was.

Ice Angel said...

Glad I'm not the only one ticked off about Katherine Ross being called Sam Elliott's wife! Yikes! She is a HUGE star in her own right!

MISCH said...

Katherine Ross Was a very big star..and very beautiful...isn't Cleo an only child ?
This really sucks...

thisoldbroad said...

Califblondy,
This does happen to 'normal' families everywhere. I don't know what illness this young woman is suffering from, but I have a family member who's son battled schizophrenia & eventually killed himself. The outburst sounds frighteningly similar to us. Devastating for all the family.

Nu's Woman said...

Goes to show every family has its share of problems. Who knows what's the daughter's real problem?

Maja. With a J. said...

I wouldn't have known the name Katherine Ross. Sorry. I do recognize her though. Had no idea she's married to Sam Elliot. But I do love Sam Elliot!

Priscila said...

I don´t know this time Ent, it was a pretty serious thing, happened with people that are not attention seekers for you to crack a joke about it...

Well, Cleo is not only and only child but Katharine was in her forties when she had her. Maybe both spoiled her a lot, maybe the girl is just mentally sick, but it is still pretty sad that she had to get a restraining order against her only daughter at this time of her life...

Cindy said...

I don't know why anyone would call her an actress -- she was horrible. But that being said, she doesn't deserve to be stabbed by her kid. Surely Sam Elliot isn't the father? I love Sam too, but I can't see him letting a kid get that spoiled.

Simone said...

Sam sure has pretty hair. Do you think he uses hot rollers?

Jamie's Girl said...

He could have said Katharine Ross and Sam Eliott's Daughter, Cleo, and I would have been ok.

Katharine Ross was gorgeous to me in the 1970's with Butch Cassidy, Stepford Wives, etc.

brittiany said...

I think that she was referred to as Sam Elliot's wife because someone new is writing. Has been for at least a week not. Let me make it clear that I am NOT complaining. I'll take what I can get on CDAN. But the writing had been a girl I think. I very much thought so especially thought so on the post last week about the kid found with her moms pot. The past week writings have been to peppy to be enty.

Dianne said...

Sounds like mental illness to me. The daughter is too old for teenage acting out. Could well be schizophrenic or bipolar. Poor family.

Loved Katherine in The Graduate.

lisap515 said...

I wouldn't have known her by name either, but I have seen those movies. Now Sam...his voice alone...Sam I know. ;)

Jeannies Bottle said...

Yeah, it really ticked me on when I read here, and elsewhere that 'Sam Elliott's wife' had a problem with HER daughter.
Plus ca change, plus qui la meme!

Jeannies Bottle said...

obviously I meant ticked me OFF, not ON. In any event, I was TICKED.

Mooshki said...

I've also never heard of her. I'd have referred to her as his wife too. She may be an actress, but she's not exactly a celeb, is she?

amoteafloat said...

Mooshki, admittedly, I only know who she is because of The Graduate. I love that movie with all my heart, and she is STUNNING in it.

amoteafloat said...

Regardless, though: SHE was the one who was STABBED! She should have at least been named for that reason alone!

Paisley said...

Katherine Ross is a former Academy Award Nominee. I think it's pretty insulting to refer to her as Sam Elliot's wife twice with no reference to her own career.

It sounds like Katherine and Sam have had trouble with their daughter for many years. Sad.

Reese said...

I'm in with those who believe Katherine Ross deserves some credit on her own; she did have a busy career back in the day. Sad to see she's not aging very well. I had no idea she is married to Sam Elliott, and apparently has been for some time; very far out of the loop am I on such matters.

Cleo sounds like a pain and a half; cut her out of the will now.

RocketQueen said...

Actually, if she had Cleo in her 40s, that would mean she's near or over 60 right now, and I'd say she looks damn good!

Maja. With a J. said...

As far as whether enty writes the blog or not; listening to the radio show has convinced me that he does. The posts are definitely his "voice".

Paisley said...

Ross was born January 29, 1940, so she's 71 now. Don't know when that picture was taken.

amoteafloat said...

@Maja -- I agree. He might not be the most eloquent writer, but his speaking voice is EXACTLY like his written voice, and that's impossible to replicate.

RocketQueen said...

Thanks Paisley! That looks like it might be a poster for Battle: Los Angeles in the back, which means this is recent. I hope I look like that when I'M 71!

amoteafloat said...

@Paisley -- SEVENTY-ONE???????????????!!! Dude, the picture in this post isn't *that* old, so she must have at least been in her sixties when it was taken.

JEEEEBUS, direct me to Katherine's clandestine Fountain of Youth!! Either that, or she's got forty virgins chained in her basement waiting to be desanguinated. She, Cathy Deneuve, and Sophia Loren have GOT to tell me their secrets.

Merlin D. Bear said...

For what it's worth, Katherine Ross *was* an actress back in the day and working relatively full time (not an easy thing for any actor to pull off). This however was 30+ years ago.
At about this time, Sam Elliot's career began to take off - and I imagine about this time she decided "meh" on Hollywood and took her money, invested wisely and sat back to do just what she wanted.
And if you don't stay in front of the cameras, the world will forget you - apparently explaining why she provokes the reaction she does.
Regardless, a restraining order is a little lax where physical assault has happened.

Simone said...

Leah Remini needs to take note. This will be her in 20 years.

sunnyside1213 said...

Well, at least they didn't call her Kathrine Hepburn's niece.

amoteafloat said...

@sunnyside -- dude. Is she?! That's some cool trivia.

pomme said...

David Fincher (Katharine Ross' HUGE fan :he even mentioned her in several movies'commentaries) is choking! Sam Elliot's wife

The Black Cat said...

I always used to get Katharine Ross and Ali McGraw mixed up - I'm sure some of you have never heard of Ali McGraw either ;)
She looks fabulous at 70!

amoteafloat said...

OMG. Ali McGraw is gorgeous, too! She and Katherine must rent out that incognito Fountain of Youth.

Stephen said...

Actually, Katherine Hepburn's niece is Katharine Houghton who starred with her in Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. Back in those days Ross and Houghton were interchangeable although Katherine Ross had the bigger career of the two. And yes, she deserves to be referred to by name. 30 years ago Sam Elliot would have been referred to as Katherine Ross' husband. And if it was the original EL he would have known that.

Barton Fink said...

I loved the original Stepford Wives movie. I loved the book, too.

The Black Cat said...

Yeah, love Ira Levin books.

Phillip said...

Katherine Ross is my husbands celebrity crush. She's the perfect woman in his eyes...from Butch Cassidy.

Mango said...

I'm more pissed off that Ross got stabbed than I am at the wife comment, and I know who she is. But back to the stabbing; she's 71 for crissakes! She shouldn't have to live in fear of her daughter. She needs to cut off her daughter pronto.

Girly said...

I don't think violence against women is a matter to take lightly or joke about.

you lost me as a reader!

bye!

ardleigh said...

Sam Elliot's wife is a bit of a slap to a lady with her Hollywood chops.

You scared me for a minute because, when I first saw words Sam Elloit, wife, and restraining order the next words I thought would be HIM. I thought NOoooooo not Sam.
Worded that way it was a bit scary for a second. DON'T make me think bad things about the Golden Voice and SHAME ON YOU for treating her like a second class citizen. A man who loves women like you do (all your wives) should be more enlightened.

lutefisk said...

I am one of those people who didn't know Katherine Ross and Sam Elliot were married. I wondered what happened to her. She was huge in the late 60's early 70's, then fell out of the public eye. I am so sorry that this is how she is back in the press. I wish the three of them a peaceful future. She was STUNNING in her movies.

PS said...

Enty,

A woman was stabbed and her life seriously threatened, and you make a joke about it being the fault of what you consider a mediocre professional blip on the part of the victim? How disgusting a person are you trying to be here? There is nothing funny about a woman - a MOTHER - being stabbed and threatened by her own daughter. NOTHING. That is horrific and tragic and irreparable. This poor woman is seeking legal help, and you belittle her? Make a mockery of this? And, then you continue your shameful mysogyny (or is it misanthropy?) by not even giving her the courtesy of a name; to you, she's merely the wife of someone with fame. She is a person, Enty, and she has a name. The fact that she is very accomplished in her own right only makes you look like an even bigger jerk. Shame on you. What a revolting, inhumane, mean-spirited post about a real tragedy.

RocketQueen said...

I think everyone just needs to simmer down a bit....I agree that it was a bit insensitive on Enty's part to refer to her as "Sam Elliot's wife", but the link that he provides is titled just that, and I'm guessing that's where he got it from. And anyone who reads this blog regularly knows Enty is NOT mean-spirited. Just my two cents.

EatMyDirtyAsshole said...

I love Katherine Ross. Fuck ehr daughter.
