Blind Items Revealed

December 13, 2011

This one kind of blew me away because I did not know this actress was into charity. She is all movie all the time. B list, but I think it is more for her looks than any real acting talent. She stays extremely popular despite the fact she really does not make that many movies and seems to just stay in our eye by pap photos. Anyway, she read an article about homeless people and was fully prepared to go spend her Thanksgiving with her husband feeding homeless at the Los Angeles Mission. When she started exploring it more though she decided she wanted to give people more of a home feel for the holiday. So, she arranged to have 50 homeless families come to her place where she had set up a big tent and fed them all there and during the meal had televisions playing holiday movies and even made sure that each parent was given a gift they could give to their child on Christmas. Not too shabby.

How can she be all movie all the time when she started out on TV?

Rita said...

Good for her. Very well done Jessica! Hope Karma is around the corner.

Vicki Cupper said...

Good for her. That was a great thing to do.

Jaiden_S said...

IKR? She started off on Dark Angel. That's not all movies.

But good on her for that kindness.

bridget said...

Wow. You just gained my respect, MiserAlba.

MontanaMarriott said...

Wow who'd a thunk it is right, I hope Cash does right by her

nolachickee said...

Wow, I'm impressed. She seems to be ok, but that husband of hers seems shady. Doubt this was his idea.

Rachael said...

Amazing. Certainly makes up for the scowls she constantly as on her face.

MISCH said...

O.K. Enty, no reveal for 10/31 and no reveal for 12/12...I am not happy.

Lindsey said...

This is nice to hear. I like her but mostly for her good style. But all movies? Maybe now but not so much before.

Lindsey said...

@misch which ones were those?

Get a Life said...

Does it really matter who's idea it was or where she got her start. It's about following through on something really nice. Way to go Jessica!

surfer said...

I don't doubt she did something nice, but I find it hard to believe that she had 50 homeless people come to her house, even if it was in a tent. Seriously?

Mina said...

This brings tears to my eyes. You go, Jessica!!!

ABlake said...

I think she's probably always been pretty cool, just not into hollywood fakery so people assumed she was a snob.
This is an awesome reveal.

Chrissy Buns said...

Wow. Just wow. I am actually really happy this is her. I think she gets a bad rap for looking kind of scowly all the time, but this is awesome!

MadLyb said...

I piggy backed on this guess and am grateful to those of you who got this right. Sweet!

Del Riser said...

Really good to know that there are in fact some really nice folks in tinseltown.

Reese said...

I don't remember her being the popular guess for this, but well done, Jessica.

msgirl said...

Before this, I recently had started to like her and think she just wasn't into the Hollyqood game - she's with her kids a ton completely dressed down, not like she called the paps. Now I like her even more. Stay real, Jessica.

Every act of kindness counts.

Elizabeth said...

Great story. I don't think Jessica is much of an actress but she seems like a sweet girl.

heather_p said...

@Get a Life The reason people are talking about the TV thing is it makes it impossible to guess the subject of a blind when the basic facts aren't correct.

Great story though.

sunshine said...

who paid for it?

Cheryl said...

I've always felt that she got a bad rap. She's always seemed likable to me. Not a great actress, but likeable, which is more than I can say about a lot of them.

linnea said...

Wow, what a nice thing to do!

KathyVermont said...

Good for her, that was very kind of her, I like her!

Felicite said...

UGH!!! Now I like her... I never wanted to.

Lelaina Pierce said...

I love the kindness blinds. Go Alba.

EmEyeKay said...

@Felicite, same here. This reveal totally changed my image of her.

Mooshki said...

To quote Enty: (I also think maybe he's forgotten that Dark Angel ran as long as it did.)

"First, the clarification. When I say someone is all movies or all television, that does not discount them ever being in one or the other. Almost every actor in Hollywood has been in both especially early in their career. But, if someone did a two episode arc in a show ten years ago, it doesn't seem fair to say movies and some television because they really didn't so much. Someone say like John Lithgow who goes seamlessly between the two would be a television and movie actor. Another example would be someone like Meg Ryan. Yes, she did soaps way back in the day but I don't think it would be right to say this movie and sometime television actress. I hope this helps."

KittensRUs said...

Jessica has taken a beating by some of the various celeb gossip sites, and I've never gotten it. Met her years ago at an animal charity event and she was beyond charming. Seemed to be super sweet. I've always wondered if someone had it in for her, and that's why the bad press.

Tatyana said...

Blogger KittensRUs, Perez used to bash her because he considered her "betraying her Latino roots" for some reason or other (might have something with marrying Cash).

RocketQueen said...

Nice thing of her to do. However, it doesn't discount all her asshole behaviour. But it helps :)

The Adventures of... said...

I didn't expect that of her- but no doubt, that's a very kind and thoughtful gesture. Props.

And yeah, she did start out in TV...though that was a while ago! :)
