Today's Blind Item

This is an interesting one. This actress is C list. Yes, she stars in her own television show which should make her at least a B lister, but she just does not get the publicity or really have that special name recognition. Her name is easy to remember though. Anyway, our actress has never really been in the public eye which has allowed her to date who she wants. Her preference? She-Males. Yep. The actress from a conservative town has the craziest fetish I have heard in a long time.

Piper Perabo?

flwrgurl said...

mary louise parker?

Patty said...

Oh, it's that actress on that show about that thing and she's from that town over there.

Could the clues be any more vague?

what do I type here? said...

SofĂ­a Vergara?
Anna Paquin?

RocketQueen said...

Actually, I like the Piper guess a lot...but is that show just starting this season?

Ida Blankenship said...

LOL. I agree, Patty.

Could this be Maria Bello? They're (unnecessarily) revamping Prime Suspect, and her name is somewhat memorable.

Jennifer said...

I was also thinking Piper. The show she is on is Covert Affairs on USA. I think it is at least in it's 3rd season.

von said...

Piper Perabo is a great guess and she's from Dallas, which could be considered conservative.

Ida Blankenship said...

Oooh. Dallas?

Cool. I'm down with the Piper guess!

Lola said...

Actually, Piper Perabo is NOT from Dallas, she is from a town in New Jersey called Toms River, which is just across the bridge from where they shoot "Jersey Shore." My hometown as well which is why I know. And this is NOT her - her taste is more toward the ladies, and it's been like that since high school.

Cecilia00 said...

Is everybody a consenting adult? If so, then more power to her.

Jamee said...

Hmm, interesting Lola. Covert Affairs just started Season 2. It's actually really good if anyone is looking for summer viewing besides reality garbage. But it's mostly because it reminds me of Alias, which is one of the best shows of all time.

Patty said...

Exactly. She's from that city in that state. You know...the one with a capital and their own flag ;)

linnea said...

So, not Piper then?

pandapig said...

Whitney Cummings FTW!

Mango said...

@ Dana - Piper Perabo is a great guess.

Unknown said...

Ooo, what do you think about Julianna Margulies?

Sylvia said...

Born:
Piper Lisa Perabo
October 31, 1976 in Dallas, Texas, USA

CB said...

Sorry Sylvia, but while Piper's bio might say Dallas she really is from New Jersey.

I also agree with Lola - Piper prefers the company of women.

friffy said...

Martha Plimpton?

white lorelei said...

Brooke Elliott, Drop Dead Diva. From Minnesota.

The Nightmare Child said...

I second the Whitney Cummings guess.

Cathy said...

I don't think it's Whitney... it sounds like the show this person stars in is already on... Whitney's show doesn't premiere until the fall.

Pelham123 said...

Piper was born in Dallas, Texas and raised in Toms River, NJ.

califblondy said...

Is she-male, tops or bottoms? Which part(s) are she and which are male?

Missjenny619 said...

Looks like a female, with male body parts 'down there'.

Could be Piper, if she is into the ladies than why not one with male equipment as well?

Just becuase people on here hint that she has lesbian tendencies, that does not rule out she-males.

Mooshki said...

Hey, Minnesota isn't conservative!

Mooshki said...

Only state that didn't go to Ronald Reagan in '80! :)

califblondy said...

Thanks MissJen, do they have boobs or a hairy man chest? Is the guy who had babies considered a she-male? I thought trannies were guys who dressed up like women, but still had all the original equipment. What is Alexis Arquette considered?

I honestly don't know. I've led a sheltered life....

maggiemei said...

Whoa. This thread is getting really uncomfortable. The use of the term "shemale" in the clue itself is extremely offensive, as is the term "tranny". Transgender people have to put up with a ton of crap from people all the time. Let's try to be a little kinder about this.

All that said, I would assume this would be a pre-op(bottom) MTF Trangender woman.

Holly GoSmitely said...

Hi. Maybe this will clarify what a she-male is- they are also called "chicks with d*cks". They look like a female and have bewbs but they also have the male equipment. It is totally the best of both worlds, like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, if you will.

selenakyle said...

Whoa, that IS a weird one! And I watch a lot of porn and I just cannot go down THAT path... sheesh!

selenakyle said...

My first thought was MLP too.

B. Profane said...

Huh. I have many dyke friends, some who sleep with guys occasionally. None have mentioned an attraction to anything in between. Chacun a son gout.

Barton Fink said...

Transgendered people who make money as sex workers tend to use the word "she-male," and it's a not unheard-of term to me in my fairly mainstream life as a gay man. The drag queens I used to work with used it extensively, generally as the object of fetishism by "straight" men, but apparently by this actress as well. For some people, the hermaphroditic image of a feminine or androgynous body with both breasts and a penis is exciting. The image has a long history in archetypal iconography, too, the Baphomet figures drawn by Eliphas Levi, for instance.

Barton Fink said...

@B.Profane, Isn't Chacun Shakira's butch sister? (Just kidding)

SeattleMarge said...

I think it's the woman on the show about the Witness Protection program. She's the star and her name is pretty plain like Mary Morrison or something.

SeattleMarge said...

Mary McCormack. She's from Plainfield, NJ

Lauren said...

Are any lead actresses on a tv series from Salt Lake City? That's the first city that came to mind for me.

Me said...

the term tranny is offensive? im sick of all the PC crap. it is what it is.

B. Profane said...

So you're guessing a Mormon TV headliner who's into she-males? That would qualify as one of the greatest BI's ever.

This one has lawsuit written all over it. I don't think we're getting a reveal from Enty.

Netta said...

<- kinda giggling over the "Reese's Peanut Butter Cup" analogy.

hikerhead said...

For what it is worth, my understanding of a very simplistic take on the terminology is transsexual refers to mtf or ftm who identify with the gender opposite of that they were born (if one accepts traditional views of gender). Transvestites are men who dress in women's clothing, but still identify as men (and, I suppose, although I have not heard of it, women who dress as men but identify as women). I understand shemale to refer to transsexuals.

No clue on the blind but it definitely works for me.

Kaley Cuoco - Big Bang Theory

childeroland said...

Perabo was great in Lost and Delirious.

Mooshki said...

Childeroland, I love that movie so much. That movie is why I can never get my hate on for Mischa Barton.

MarcoC said...

@Barton Fink: I'm a straight guy and I date mtf transsexuals, not some skinny guy in drag. Ts's like straight guys too. Never been attracted to men in slightest and certainly haven't had sex with them. We're attracted to their femininity and to the woman they know themselves to be. And gay men aren't attracted to transsexuals either. I used to work for gay owned and operated company. None of them hit on me because they knew I was straight and they said they weren't attracted to TS's. The men could be a raging femme queen in mannerisms or a body builder but they were still men with men's bodies. Calpernia Adams has a blog and youtube which discusses the same thing.

If she's happy who cares.

Kaye said...

I'm going with Margaret Cho - she did an interview this year with Marc Maron and said she likes to hook up with people who are transitioning from one sex to another. She's on Drop Dead Divas I think.

Pazitively Hot said...

Dana Delany

Name is easy to remember and she grew up in Stamford, CT - as conservative as a town could get.

Never been married and has a new show last season "body of proof"

I feel really confident about this one!

Brandi said...

@Renay - Kaley made a stink about a year ago about dating her Big Bang onscreen boyfriend while offscreen. He made her keep it secret the entire time. They even took other people to events where they knew they'd be papped - his idea of course. He allegedly didn't want their relationship to upstage the show. The subtext of the whole thing was that he's a skeevy, cheating dirtbag but that I know of she never flat out said that. Anywho, if David from Roseanne had boobies I think we'd have all noticed by now.

Crys said...

I dunno, but I am really itching for a reveal it been a while!

B. Profane said...

@Kaye -- I think you've got it nailed if she said that, but isn't she married?

Skankin' Pickle will have to reform and update their song about Cho.

Ramona said...

Margaret Cho is from San Francisco, not exactly known for being a conservative town.

dishtlk said...

Please tell me someone else thinks this is just lazy and ripped out the imagination of Tina Fey. Jane Krakowski's character on 30 Rock was dating a (least-offensive-term-here-so-i-dont-get-attacked) version of herself.... I'm shocked no one else has mentioned this!!

B. Profane said...

Forte plays a drag imitator of Jane K's character, but he's clearly portrayed as het. Not a match at all.

Forgot that Cho was from SF. But you know, west of 19th Ave the city can be surprisingly conservative.

dishtlk said...

I wasn't saying that's who it is, I was saying this is a bullshit blind.

Jennifer H. said...

Piper Perabo DOES have special name recognition. The actress in this blind does not.

I think one of the Marys mentioned could be a good guess. I know them when I see them, but their names, while easy, aren't very special.

B. Profane said...

@dishtlk -- I know what you were saying, but this BI is just the teeniest bit similar to the Forte/Jane K. plot arc on 30 Rock.

Pazitively Hot said...

why is everyone ignoring my Dana Delaney suggestion?

Mina said...

@ Maggiemei: Exactly!!! It is unbelievable what you have to read here sometimes.

farseer0514 said...

Definitely not Julianna! She's married with a kid, and she definitely has name recognition... especially in Emmy/TV circles. CBS wanted to work directly with her for the Good Wife.

Barton Fink said...

Just to see if I was wrong, I looked around and discovered that Wikipedia (that source of ultimate truth) has an article on the term She-male: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shemale -- pretty much points out that it's a term from sex work, etc., etc.

MarcoC, my sense from your post is that you are not paying prostitutes, so of course you wouldn't be in on this. Breast augmentation and a penis, plus hooking, equals a she-male. I don't know what's offensive about me pointing this out.

Me said...

"I'm a straight guy and I date mtf transsexuals" seriously? you are not straight. when you are a man and are sexually attracted to other men that makes you at either bi or gay. at least own it.

K said...

How about Callie Thorn who plays "Sheila" on Rescue me and now has her own show called Necessary Roughness???
She has an interesting name and in this weeks episode she has that "she male" actress as a guest star that was in Dirty Sexy Money. I think it's Alexis Arquette..

B. Profane said...

I used to have a couple of she-he hookers that lived next door. When I would see them out tricking, they were, ah, marketing themselves as women.

K said...

oops "Thorne".

K said...

oops again, The transexual woman who guest starred on Callie's show is Candice Cayne.

KSull said...

@Pazitively Hot - I like your suggestion a lot. Makes sense to me.
