Today's Blind Items

This former B list movie actress with A+ name recognition and now someone who seems to just show up for cameos from time to time has been so out of it since the birth of her recent child that she has only even held him a few times. Apparently our actress has been going through the stress of pretending she even wanted the child for the sake of helping her publicity challenged husband. Our actress has been on a crazy combination of drug cocktails and is so upset with her husband that she only speaks to him every week or so.

Don't let this be Selma Blair...

Lindsey said...

Never mind. She isn't married.

selenakyle said...

Poor kid. This sucks. Friggin' people and their awful reasons for procreating...gyahh!

parissucksliterally said...

That is awful

Another future screwed up person.

RenoBlondee said...

This is awful! That poor kid!

WastedTime said...

How about Kelly Preston?

Bnl1016 said...

I don't fully get what its saying. I mean I do, but its worded weird. Publicity challenged husband? I'm not sure what that means.

Jessica Alba? Alyssa Milano? Jennifer Connelly? Idk

I don't want to say Kate Hudson because we had a blind not too long ago about a preggo that drank and smoked her way through the pregnancy which we all agreed was her. The "effed up" preggo blinds can't ALL be about her I would think or else it would be old news.

I like Kelly Preston as a possibility too but don't you think he would have said something about it being an A list couple? Can you really downplay John Travolta that much?

selenakyle said...

And, are Scientos allowed to take meds?

Dana @ What the Frock? said...

I like the Kelly Preston guess.

Nutty_Flavor said...

But I wouldn't call Kelly Preston's name recogntion "A+". My mother wouldn't know who she is.

EmEyeKay said...

Isn't Jessica Alba married to a skeezy guy?

RocketQueen said...

Kelly Preston seems like the best guess so far...upset because her husband is becoming less discreet about his dalliances, perhaps?

Sadie said...

Kelly Preston came to mind...and that was before I read your responses here.

sussique said...

I wouldn't say Kelly Preston has A list name recognition and publicity challenged doesn't fit Travolta. But what a great guess.

Lohan said...

Rebecca Gayheart

Sis said...

"Publicity challenged husband", does that mean somebody who is unknown, trying to get known, or someone who has had bad or negative publicity or what?

Poor child, I know give the baby to me!

EmEyeKay said...

"publicity-challenged" - does that mean he gets none, or that the publicity he gets is bad?

Scientologists can't take anti-depressants and such.

EmEyeKay said...

@Sis - typing at the same time!

Susan said...

Gah. Hate this blind. I wouldn't call any of the peeps listed so far to have A-plus name rec. But, please feel free to try to sway me. I'm not one to knock guesses with nothing better to offer.

The peeps recently affiliated with baby making with A-plus name rec to me seem to be Posh (not an actress, obvi) and Beyonce (still with bun in the oven, allegedly).

I got nothing. And where is this blind about the smoker while preggers? Seeing pregnant ladies smoking just makes my blood boil. (It's my one judgy viewpoint as a mom. As Wendy Williams so rightly said, we all have them.)

MISCH said...

Kate Hudson getting pregnant was no accident, there were enough blind reveals about her wanting to get pregnant while she was with A-Rod...so she's out.
Whoever it is I feel for her...

Bnl1016 said...

@Susan - the blind is here http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2011/10/national-enquirer-blind-item_11.html

I also don't think of any of the people I mentioned as A list. That's why I just started tossing names of new moms out there.

@MISCH - and Kate's not married, which discounts her anyways. I forgot about that detail.

Susan said...

I wish this blind had a timeline. It's kind of driving me nuts.

Susan said...

I've been trying to justify Angelina. But there's no way she was ever B-list.

Jaime said...

"that she has only even held him a few times."

Who had a boy?

shopgirl said...

No idea who this is (the cameo clue is intriguing, though) but it sounds like she's suffering from postpartum depression. Very sad.

Susan said...

Penelope Cruz?

txtommom said...

Rachel Zoe

WBotW said...

Susan, I literally was just about to suggest Penelope Cruz. The baby is 10 months old, is a boy, and we all know about the rumours concerning Javier and Julia...

Seachica said...

Except Penelope Cruz does more than show up for cameos from time to time. She started in pirates of the Caribbean this year, and has two movies scheduled for 2012.

cdanluva said...

Lisa Bonet?

cdanluva said...

Allysa Milano?

Momster said...

Naomi Watts? I don't think she and Liev are married, tho', and her youngest is about 2 and 1/2 years old. But I could see her being mad at Liev for his dalliances.

Licia06 said...

I could see Jessica Alba having A+ name recognition & wasn't her husband supposedly caught cheating with Lindsay Lohan?

Licia06 said...

Oh I missed the part about it being a boy. Kate hudson had a boy but doesn't make cameos that I can think of. Kelly Preston fits the best.

BigMama said...

I like the Rebecca Gayhart guess

Me said...

aww, i feel bad for mommy. PPD is like a big black hole that sucks the life out of you. hope someone gets her some help. will be bad for everyone involved if they don't.

linnea said...

Rebecca Gayhart had her second baby? Then my money is on her.

I think this sounds like postpartum, too.

Mary Stewart-McGovern said...

It isn't Rebecca Gayheart. She has a daughter and is still pregnant with her 2nd child.

Cecilia00 said...

Wasn't Travolta essentially outed by Carrie Fischer right around the time he & Preston announced the pregnancy, along with heavy rumors he was leaving CoS? Could that be the "publicity-challenged" reference?

Sylvia said...

It could be Kelly Preston. Publicity Challenged Husband = Gay Rumors, Wanting out of COS???

Prairie Prima Donna said...

This is so sad. :(

I read it like the husband wanted the baby to make himself more well known, and she went along with it to make him happy.

Ali Landry had a boy last month and wasn't she the sexy chip girl in the commercials?

Jolene Jolene said...

Publicity challenged to me means bad publicity. I think Kelly Preston fits perfectly AND she's in the photos today. And they had a baby boy. It might be a tiny stretch with A+ name recognition, but that only depends on who you're asking. I don't think A+ name rec necessarily means every single person on the planet knows who they are.

Susan said...

My issue with most of the guesses, including mine with Penelope Cruz, is that how do any of these ladies have A-plus name recognition?? A-plus name recognition is like Angelina, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Madonna, etc. Like everyone and their mother's mother knows who they are. Am I wrong on this, CDANers?? I hope we get more clues for this blind.

TrueBlue said...

Alicia Silverstone

Bnl1016 said...

@Susan - See I think the ladies you mentioned ARE A+ list.

A+ list just off name rec and not on actual work would include alot of the others mentioned here. For example, eventhough its not her, most people know who Kate Hudson is due to her mom. Or someone like Penelope may be A+ name rec because she dated Tom Cruise and he's an actual A+.

I know I sound like such a broken record, but its so hard to say what's A+ based off name rec because Enty (or whoever) is in LA. He's in the bubble. I don't know that there's a good grasp there of what may be A+ name rec to the rest of the world.

Anotheramy said...

It sounds like it was written for Kelly Preston except she is a practicing scientologist and cannot take anything except vitamins. It absolutely cant be her. No way no how.
Natalie Portman? Tia Mowry? Rachel Zoe?

Nerdista said...

I totally thought Kelly Preston.

Hendrix said...

Has to be Kelly Preston. Did you see how she looked in the photo? Important distinction about Scientologists: They are not entirely anti-drug (not like Christian Scientists.) They are anti-psychotropic drugs prescribed by psychiatrists to help deal with legitimate psychological/emotional/brain chemical imbalance issues like bi polar disorder, schizophrenia, and depression - particularly depression. This is a) because psychiatry dissed L Ron Hubbard back in the 50's and he never got over it and a big part of his religious doctrine is about getting revenge over the bastards and b) because depressed people are ideal Scientology candidates. They don't want them cured. They don't want alcoholics going to AA either. They want to take those big empty emotional/spiritual/chemical holes and fill them up with their own special blend of cult paranoia, cronyism & the Xenu doctrine. This is how they create obedient drones. Scientologists ideally don't take drugs...but there are some ex cult member accounts of drugs being used to control members. I think the church would frown on the drug/substance taking if it made the member less controllable, but would probably look the other way if it kept an unhappy high-value member in line.

cricket61 said...

Hmmmm, not convinced this is Kelly Preston, I don't think she has A+ name recognition. Also she is set to play Victoria Gotti in the new Gotti movie, which I don't see as a cameo. I hope whoever it is gets the help they need.

katie said...

The name recognition could apply to Mrs Travolta because of the People Magazine spreads about the death of their child and the ' miraculous' birth of the new son.
Very sad.

Squeezebox said...

You know, this could be Kelly Preston, if Enty uses the term "drugs" somewhat loosely. The Co$ requires its members to go through the infamous Purification Rundown at least once, and they also recommend it as a treatment for people under a lot of stress. It's not just promoted for treating addicts. The rundown includes a multivitamin cocktail and megadoses of mineral supplements, a chemical drink called CalMag and even drinking vegetable oils.

All of that is indeed a "crazy combination of drug cocktails" - not prescription drugs per se, but clearly viewed by the Church as having a medical, therapeutic effect, in other words, drugs.

Unknown said...

Katherine Heigl

P said...

Tori Spelling

Susan said...

Good point about Kelly Preston having A-plus name rec due to the loss of their son in the Bahamas. I so forgot about that.

Merissa said...

Victoria Beckham? She does rare cameos as herself...
Becks had loads of bad publicity for his wild boy ways...

sueli said...

Kelly Preston is my guess, too.

Monica said...

I was thinking Tori Spelling. Sad whoever it is.

Jennifer H. said...

I first thought of Kelly Preston since there had been some rumors about marriage problems revolving around her pregnancy. Those rumors don't fit the blind, though. The rumors were that she was hell bent on having another baby after Jet's death and John did NOT want one and that issue kind of estranged them. He isn't hurting publicity-wise, so there would be no reason for her to fake-like a pregnancy to help him. Kelly Preston as the answer makes no sense.

I can't think of anyone.

Thea said...

Tori Spelling.

Jewels said...

I'm firmly on the Tori Spelling train...

Bnl1016 said...

But is Tori Spelling really a B list movie actress? With all the TV (90210 plus her reality shows) and TV movies she's done? She's actually almost all TV if you look at her IMDB resume. That right there eliminates her for me.

SMS said...

Think it is Natalie Portman. She won an oscar so that would give her the a status. But she does a lot of small movies, so possibly a b list for her roles.

Daveb said...

I like the Preston guess. I note that the actress is a FORMER B list. She is now doing cameos it would mean that she is currently C or D list as an actress. Most of the other names cited (Alba, Hudson, Cruz are all still B list and staring in movies). The only real argument against Preston is that COS is anti-drug. However it is also anti-gay and that doesn't seem to stop one or two of their most prominant members (no pun intended).

anastaja said...

Nicole Kidman had a baby (named Faith) not too long ago, and she hasn't been in much of anything lately.

anastaja said...

Oh wait, missed the "him" part indicating it's a male baby. I like the Alyssa Milano guess.
