Four For Friday - And A Hint To Help You With Yesterday

I have always said I have the best readers who can figure out every blind item, no matter how obscure the clues. It is uncanny, but invariably someone usually gets it right. Now, granted I do not read all the guesses everyday, but because yesterday was a big head scratcher and had a lot of guesses, I wanted to see how many people got it right. As of about 7:30 this morning which is the last time I looked, no one had got it right and no one had even sniffed it. So here a couple of hints. The manuscript is circulating and has not been published. He was the star of the franchise.


Now on with your regularly scheduled programming.

#1 - This almost network show is all about drama. It seems though there is even more drama off the set and it involves a bunch of jealousies. The people on this show have been in this space before, many times. It seems though one of the reasons they keep turning up in this space is because of one of the actresses on the show. At this point she is probably the most well known. It was not always the case but she has made sure to toss her competition out of the way. Whether it is whispering to producers about the drug problems of another actress on the show, or making up stories about how a guest actress bad mouthed the writers so that guest actress is rarely seen anymore, our actress has used every trick she can, including sleeping with several of the producers to make sure she stays the star.

#2 - This A list couple recently married. They were co-stars and then became lovers. Our actor already had a significant other in his life, but he really wanted his co-star. So, he told his then girlfriend he would be working late, got a production assistant to let him into the actresses' trailer and was waiting there for her naked as the day he was born. Unfortunately she was not alone, as her assistant had come with her. The assistant saw what she saw and then went away. Apparently the rest of it worked though since the couple got together.

#3 & #4- He is not really coke dad, because he is not a dad, but this B-/C+ actor has made it very clear to his new celebrity/reality star? girlfriend who is a mom that he plans on continuing to party whether there is a child present or not. "Just keep the kid away from the coke, and there will not be a problem."

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz for 2?

Bnl1016 said...

Damn you beat me to it. That's my first instinct for #2 as well.

The others i'm not sure....

Mary Stewart-McGovern said...

1. Lea Michelle/Glee
2. Daniel Craig & Rachel Weisz
3. I have no clue but he sounds like a total d-bag

Dana @ What the Frock? said...

1. Mad Men/Janjo?
2. I agree about Daniel and Rachael
3. No idea

Patty said...

1. Blake Lively
2. Like the Craig/Weisz guesses
3. No clue

gossip said...

That first one has January Jones written all over it since Mad Men is considered an almost network TV show.

The Bitch Next Door said...

No contest.....GLEE's Leah Michelle for #1. But curious, there are straight producers on GLEE?? Whoda thunk it.

Sio said...

I'm with @Patty on the Blake Lively guess

bloodonthescreen said...

1. Lea Micbitch. I think Dianna Agron is believed to be the cokey one?

2. DC & RW were my first thought too.

3 & 4. still thinking...

Dana @ What the Frock? said...

Re: Lea Michele/Glee - isn't Fox a network, not an "almost network?"

RenoBlondee said...

Isn't Fox a network though?

Margaret said...

Could Tim Allen be the manuscript writer?

RenoBlondee said...

Ah Dana, ya beat me to it!

Also, any fresh guesses on yesterday's blind? This one is driving me nuts!

BigMama said...

Tim Allen wasn't engaged to anyone that is an actress.

What about Keifer?

Deep said...

Almost-network: I always think CW. I think its one of the chicks from 90210.

Ice Angel said...

#2 I thought first of Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer

#3&#4-OMG there are so many reality stars these days...I'll have to think of this, but they are both douchebags to have the child exposed to this.

Bnl1016 said...

Go back to yesterdays post for new guesses. I think someone got it.

Peter Weller - Robocop, then Dexter & 24

Was engaged but never married to Sela Ward currently on CSI.

MM said...

#2: Annalynne McCord from 90210

crila16 said...

Definitely not Blake for #1. She doesn't care about staying the star of Gossip Girl (and besides, she's not the only star anyway)...she wants to be a movie star. TV is so way yesterday for her. She had Leo and is now going after Ryan...she doesn't have time to care if someone is stealing her stupid tv show. I think it's Lea Michelle. It's all she has. She'll never be a movie star.

Ice Angel said...

OMG...I love the Peter Weller guess and would I looooove to read that book!!! He is one creeeeeeppppyyyyyy dude!!!!

Pookie said...

1-cw (the almost network...i don't think they've saturated suffient amounts of the market to be full-fledged network, have they? i forget what the percentage requirements are), blake, gossip girl (where IS michelle tratchenwhatever lately? written out?)

2-daniel craig/rachel w.

BigMama said...

I also thought about Macauley Caulkin....just to be different. He does alot of TV and Mila is very A-list right now

BigMama said...

ohhhh the Peter Weller guess is awesome!

RocketQueen said...

1. Someone on the CW. I thought of Blake also, but crila makes a good point. I vote for Trachtenberg if she's currently working. But I REALLY dont' think this is Lea Michele. Girl is way too much of a prude in real life and had a long-term boyfriend.

2. Definitely Weisz/Craig. How much would we all have loved coming home to that, ladies??

3. How about Butler/Glanville for shits and giggles.

J. said...

1- Blake Lively. There was a blind that people thought was Michelle Trachtenberg about a guest star complaining about the writers and there was another blind suggesting Leighton Meester has a drug prob.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

I think it's Gossip Girl, CW has been referred to as "almost network" before. If not CW, it's Lea Michele and FOX.

AMC is definitely cable, and January Jones was barely on Mad Men last season... she has already peaked and is fading.

Ida Blankenship said...

1. There is no way in hell that January is the "star" of Mad Men -- and since she plays Don's ex-wife, I doubt her screen time will increase next season. Also, she may be a beeyotch, but I've never come across any stories about the cast not getting along. They seem to be nothing but professional.

I don't think it's Lea -- Fox is definitely a network. I'm going to go with Blake Lively. Yeah, she WANTS to be a movie star, but I'm sure that Gossip Girl paycheck is pretty decent.

2. Rachel and Daniel. And sure they're an attractive couple, but I always think it's bad juju or whatever to begin a relationship on the basis of infidelity. Personally, I don't think it'll last. Getting married during that passionate, honeymoon phase of a relationship seems boneheaded as hell to me!

3. I like the Butler/Glanville guess a lot.

nancer said...

january jones didn't exactly fade. they divorced and her role became much smaller.

i thought peter weller was HOT back in the day. i think that's a good guess---i like it.

FS said...

Pretty sure Enty includes Fox as a legitimate network now, its been around for almost 20 years and is only missing a few markets. CW is the almost network since it only exists because two networks (UPN and WB) combined to stay afloat. There have been a lot of Gossip Girl blinds here, so Blake Lively was my first guess.

No guess for the other two.

Suhyphen said...

Robocop wasn't a franchise.

Sean said...

"Robocop wasn't a franchise."

There were three of them. And a few tv series.

Although Weller bailed after the second movie.

Crystalrope said...

FOX, NBC, CBS and ABC are broadcast networks. The CW is also a broadcast network, but not as big as the Big Four so it could be considered "almost."

TNT, AMC, TBS, USA, etc. are all cable networks.

Ms Cool said...

I refuse to believe it is Daniel Craig because it creeps me out to think someone would be naked in someone else's trailer if they weren't yet dating.

Suhyphen said...

Ahhh thanks Sean! I scanned imdb briefly and it just listed Robocop and a couple of other films he was in that were nowhere near having sequels. Should have read the whole thing :)

Now I'm thinking action stars (Bruce Willis was close. Or is he A?)Then I Amigos (is Anne Heche doing tv now? She and Steve were engaged but I can't think of his tv stuff either) or Young Guns..

GAH this one is hard

Suhyphen said...

oops, "3" Amigos

Jaiden_S said...

I like the Macauley Culkin guess for the original blind.

canada girl said...

What about Chris O'Donnell for yesterday's blind? Didn't he star as Robin in the Batman series? He mainly does TV now I think... recognition mainly for the name too... I'm not sure who he would have dated though...

Mooshki said...

Daniel Craig & Rachel Weisz dated years ago, so if it is them, it wouldn't be that weird for him to wait for her naked.

Mark B said...

My first thought was Brangelina for 2, but I know nothing lol.

Jennifer H. said...

I liked the Culkin guess, but then realized he hasn't starred on any successful TV shows. (Or any?)

I had no idea Weller had been on any television shows, so while those shows are popular, they aren't huge.

Reese said...

My first thought was Blake Lively for #1, but now I think Lea Michelle is the better guess. Daniel and Rachel for #2. No idea about #3, but if the mother allows the child to be around this creep at all she should lose custody.

Stylista said...

For the blind yesterday, I was thinking of Scott Caan. He was in the Ocean's movies, and has had roles on Entourage and now stars in Hawaii Five-0. However, this morning it said that the actor was the star of the [movie] franchise, so now I don't know. :)

Katie said...

My first thought for #1 was Dexter - Julia Stiles/Jennifer Carpenter have certainly been in this space before.

lutefisk said...

Enty stated no one guessed correctly on the original post. That would rule out Peter Weller.

Bnl1016 said...

peter weller wasn't guessed in the original post. i mean he was, but it was after Enty posted the new clues, not prior to the 7:30 cut-off Enty gave.

i think everything fits for him, but i'm not 100% sold on it. i'm just saying he definitely wasn't discounted.

childeroland said...

1) 90210--Annalyne McCord vs. Shenae Grimes? Grimes was probably a little more well-known beforehand because of Degrassi, but McCrod is probably better known by now.

Though I'm not sure she is the show's star, and I can't guess who the guest actress is, so this might not fit. Seems to fit Gossip Girl more--Lively, Meester, with Trachtenberg as the guest star--but wasn't Lively always more well-known than Meester?

rachelberry said...

Lea Michele is propbabily only going to be on Glee for this season, why waste time and energy when she's already the protagonist?! Plus I can't think of guest actresses now rarely seen on Glee, aside from Gwyneth Paltrow! The show has a lot of main characters and very few recurring ones.
