Today's Blind Items

I don't know what happened yesterday. I hit the button publish, but did not even notice that it never did. So, today you get two, or three.


#1 - This just about A list movie actress who got her start on television has been developing a bit of an attitude over the past year. I think it is because she is really trying to stay off coke. Anyway, she was at a charity event the other night where she was getting paid and spent the entire night complaining about the temperature in the room; the food; the drinks; people wanting to meet her; the number of people she agreed to meet and who was keeping count; and the list just went on and on.

#2 - This actress is probably C or D list. She was on a hit television show in the sense it lasted for a good five years, but because of where it aired it was not a monster hit. She has had very little work since it went off the air but that is not stopping one of her boyfriends from trying to sell a sex tape of her enjoying not only the boyfriend but also several of his other friends. The problem is no one really cares about the actress.

#3 - This former child actress who started off so innocent before turning to the dark side of music and parental rebellion is back on heroin. I wonder if she will end up in the hospital for exhaustion again.

Elvira said...

Well, the last one is definitely Taylor Momsen -- though I would argue that she's still a child actress, which is really sad.

No idea for the other ones.

Susan said...

Could 1 be Blake Lively? I don't know what just about A-list means..

Patty O. said...

Has Taylor been in the hospital for "exhaustion"?

I was thinking maybe Demi Lovato, but I'm not sure it fits.

Carrie L. said...

You're right Elvira, #3 definitely Taylor. Very sad.

Elle said...

Could #2 be Jennifer Love Hewitt?

Squeezebox said...

One more BI for today:

This much-loved gossip blogger was featured today in an article about blind items. The blogger, whose BIs are regularly re-published on major social media sites, discussed his extensive network of Hollywood sources that he relies upon for approximately 75% of his blind items.

And the answer can be found here:

Elle said...

RE: My comment above, I'm rethinking the Jennifer Love Hewitt guess. She's probably above C or D list and she did some show about whispering I think.

Bnl1016 said...

yes #3 is obviously Momsen.

Seachica said...

#2's show was non-network, since the hit show wasn't a monster because of where it aired. So JLH would be out (and she is not C or D list). This is stretching it, but what about the girl who played the daughter on Monk?

#3 - My guess is Demi Lovato, but I hope it's Taylor Momsen. I would hate to see Demi relapsing.

Lori said...

Jennifer Aniston for number one. She said recently that she had been trying to quit smoking, which is why she had put on a little weight. I could see the same being said about cocaine and smoking being a, well, smokescreen. (Although that could be true as well.)

Astrid said...

Heigl for #1?

Susan said...

Ooooh, Lori. I like your Aniston guess. I just read in my In Style mag that she quit the ciggies.

Karmen said...

Squeezebox - Thanks for sharing the link to the interview!

RenoBlondee said...

Aniston for 1. She's trying to stay off coke for her dude.

Momsen was my first guess for 3.

Seachica said...

Emmy Clarke is the Monk actress. She has done almost nothing since the show went off the air 3 years ago. Monk ran 8 years on USA, but she was in it for five seasons.

Seachica said...

Add me to the Aniston train for #1. Which saddens me, because I am one of the few on here who like her.

RocketQueen said...

Like Aniston for #1. Lainey implies often that she and Handler LOVE the cocaine.

I don't think Momsen for #3...first I don't think she's ever been in the hospital for exhaustion, second she's very close with her mother - the two are together all the time. I'm going with Lovato.

Roya said...

@SeaChica what the hell? How could you wish this tragic thing on Taylor and not Demi...no "child star" should have to go through that.....thats sick.

lennabell said...

#1 is Mila Kunis...she was just at a charity event for St Jude and looked miserable.

izz said...

Minka Kelly for #2

__-__=__ said...

Thanks Squeezebox, that was a great read!

SusanB said...

@squeezebox - thanks for the link - interesting article!

Sherry said...

First thought was Momsen for #3 and I am on the Janiston train for #1.. Going with Seachica on #2 cuz I don't know who it could be.

Seachica said...

@Roya - perhaps you missed the point of what I wrote. I'd rather it be nobody. However, that's not an option - It *has* to be someone, given that it's a blind item. I would just prefer that it be someone else rather than Demi Lovato, who I like. I'm not wishing this on Taylor Momsen, as much as I'm hoping it is NOT Demi Lovato. Taylor is the second best guess, so Taylor is the one I mentioned.

Bnl1016 said...

I guess I don't get Lovato as #3 because she wasn't a child actress turned singer. She always sang. She started on Barney and Camp Rock is what really gained her popularity.

Momsen was an actress other than a random song here/there until her teens when she joined The Pretty Reckless. Her music vs Demi's music is quite a contrast. Demi's music is not dark. The family thing I don't think will give us a clue. Demi's mom was constantly by her side when she was in rehab. They too are very close.

Taylor has admitted to using drugs and she def does. She's also been hospitalized. It could be either of them. But. Idk. I'll just leave it alone. My vote is Taylor.

MyMamasChild said...

Heigl for #1
Selena Gomez for #2

thejadedentrepreneur said...

#1 Kunis
#2 Your guess is as good as mine
#3 Momsen

3culprits said...

Does Aniston do the paid-charity-gig thing? I don't see it.

MyMamasChild said...

Heigl for #1
Selena Gomez for #2

Gary T. Burnaska said...

#3 I do not think it is Demi, I hope not. I want to see her pull through. She has the potential to be a HW legend of Liz Taylor levels. She will never replace her, no one can.
#3 I think like other said is Taylor Momsen.

crila16 said...

#1 - Aniston or Heigl (though not sure Heigl is A list...more like a B list)

#2 - Don't know, but haven't these actresses learned yet "Never make a sex tape with a boyfriend."

#3 - Demi Lovato or Taylor Momson

tealily said...

Rooney Mara #1?

Amy said...

I don't know why that redhead from Six Feet Under came to mind for number 2. Many of those actors and actresses went on but I don't even know her name (that's what I imagine a C or D list actress probably is), she's young, she should have lots of work.

Jasmine said...

"Enty receives a steady stream of angry email from publicists representing both the celebs the blind items were actually about as well as those who show up in the comments section as guesses."

^From the link Squeezebox sent (thank btw!)

WOW guys, how cool is it that celebs know/are seeing our guess on these comment sections?! That's pretty awesome to me for some reason~

Oh yeah, and Helen Keller could guess that 3rd BI. Taylor M. ftw

Elle said...

I don't care much for Heigl, but I don't think #1 is her...I'd think the baby at home would be impetus to quit the vices...I like J'aniston and M'unis as guesses though...

EmEyeKay said...

@squeezebox, thanks much for the link.

#3 - I can see why Taylor is a good guess but "started off so innocent"? Innocent has never been a word I'd use to describe her, even pre-Pretty Reckless. And do we count being a teenager as "child actress"? I also don't remember her being hospitalized.

I don't have a guess, and she's the popular one, but to me it doesn't fit.

Mila Kunis is a great guess for #1, I'm going to see if I can find photos of the event.

parissucksliterally said...

Momsen for #3. Definitely.

I do not want #1 to be Aniston or Mila Kunis. I like them both a lot.

MacVixen said...

I'd believe Mila before Jennifer A. don't most people scoff at the idea of Jennifer being an "A list movie actress"? Granted the blind says, "just about", but I'd think that's Mila Kunis whose star is on the rise versus Aniston who desperately wants to be A+ in movies but will likely never get there.

EmEyeKay said...

Just saw the photos - her god-awful dress was most likely the reason she was unhappy, ugh!

MacVixen said...

@EmEyeKay - Wasn't momsen's first role as CindyLou Who in Grinch? that's about as innocent as you can get...

Sadie said...

Thanks for sharing that article Squeezebox...really appreciated!

kltx said...

thanks squeezebox

Mooshki said...

Taylor Momsen was Cindy Lou Who in 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas,' and was definitely a child actress who started out "innocent." (Pre-Gossip Girl.) Don't you guys remember how weird her hospitalization was? How she was supposedly in LA to take a school exam, and had traveled across the country without a parent along? And this was when she was only 15.

onfortuneswheel said...

Mila Kunis, the event being the hospital gala. http://www.redcarpet-fashionawards.com/2012/01/09/mila-kunis-in-prabal-gurung-st-jude-childrens-research-hospitals-50th-anniversary-gala/

stephenk said...

1- Jennifer Lawrence
2-don't know..
3-100% Taylor Momsen

Debutante said...

I think Lori hit it with J. Aniston for
#1. At least I hope so, only because I don't want it to be Mila Kunis, who fits the description too.
hmm...
#3 of course is Momsen.
#2 No idea. Wonder if I can look up non network shows that lasted 5 years. Nah, I'm too lazy for that.

Miss X said...

1. My 1st thought was Amanda Seyfried. She started on tv & I'd say she's A list (at least in the Rom Com world she can open a movie). I do like the Anniston guess as well.
2. What about Alexis Bledel from Gilmore Girls? That ran for 7 seasons on the WB & she has not done much since then.
3. Taylor does make the most sense for this blind. She was so cute & innocent in The Grinch.

KLM said...

I first thought of Aniston for 1 and Momsen for 3, but I'm not terribly convinced either of them actually fit entirely.

Thanks for the link, squeezebox. Good article...

brendalove@gmail.com said...

It's Taylor Momsen...there is an earlier blind item....about 2 or 3 years ago.

The Black Cat said...

Squeezebox THANKS!!!! for the link.

It is just something I enjoy doing.” Why does he enjoy it? “I just do.”

And I am very grateful that you do enjoy it so much Enty. It's a public service after all. LOL

JasonBlueEyes said...

For #2 I'm guessing Traylor Howard - She was that cute blond on Two Guys, A Girl And A Pizza Place for 5 years. She was on Monk for a few years too.

Or Vicki Lewis of Newsradio.

Amber Benson from Buffy?

Marla Sokoloff From The Practice?

Jessica said...

#3 says "back on heroin" - when did anyone ever suspect Taylor Momsen was on heroin previously, and not just a teenage angst/emo/attention-seeking phase? The way it's worded I would think there was a previous blind about it.
And when was Taylor ever hospitalized for exhaustion? The only thing I can find about Taylor is "Actress Taylor Momsen was hospitalized for a severe throat infection on October 19, 2008." - not exhaustion.
Think we're overlooking someone.

black college girl said...

I'm on the Mila train, though I do love her. I also remember her getting really thin for Black Swan though she didn't dance as much as Natalie (who didn't dance as much as the actual dancer, but whatevs)

uberbaldy said...

Traylor Howard could work since she was on Monk for 5 seasons and IMDB only has 1 thing listed for her after that.

Emmy Clark could fit too for similar reasons as Traylor.

Amber Benson I'd say is a No. She's done a lot of stuff since Buffy and the Blind says very little work.

Same with Marla Sokoloff. She was on The Practice for 7 years and has done several projects recently.

Alexis Bledel would also be a No. While Gilmore Girls was on a non-network saying it wasn't big doesn't fit since it was often critically acclaimed. Also she has done several projects, 11, in recent years. I wouldn't consider that "Not a lot". No offense Miss X. Granted I have a huge crush on her so I do and don't hope it's her. ha

I have no guesses myself but even for the "Monk" girls I'd say they are No's. The Blind says that the show was on for 5 years. Not that this person was on it for 5 years. I feel that distinction would be made. Also what about "Monster hit" I think Enty is referring to a show that lasted 5 years dealing with Monsters.

I want to say someone from "Are you afraid of the dark?" It aired on Nickelodeon, non-network, and was originally on for 5 years. It came back in 1999-2000 after an absence of 3 years but I wouldn't count those 2 seasons along with the first 5. They had different cast members except for 1 person from the first 5 seasons who came back. Also does anyone remember any of the cast from that show? I think Elisha Cuthbert was on it but other then that I can't name anyone off the top of my head. That's just my thought.

DixieTheNoble82 said...

@Squeezebox - Thanks for the link!

I was agreeing with the Aniston guesses for #1 until someone pointed out the 'A list movie actress' part. Now I think it's Mila. :(

#3 Definitely Taylor Momsen. She started as Cindy-Lou Who as others said, and I remember reading a few years ago about her being in the hospital for "exhaustion". Such a shame.

uberbaldy said...

Looking up the "AYAOTD" cast I'd guess Jodie Resther. She hasn't done much since, maybe 1 project a year, and most of the stuff since has been V/O work.

nunaurbiz said...

Thanks, squeezebox!

Bnl1016 said...

Taylor Momsen has been hospitalized more than once. You guys are just going of what was publicized well. And not every hospitalization is. Especially someone like her who isn't as big as a Selena or a Demi.

Yes, as Brendalove said there was a previous blind about her herion use and she herself has admitted to it. She was quoted as saying she's done some crazy stuff as far as sex and drugs go that even adults don't experience and it really fucks you up.

Demi was messed up. Depressed. Cutting. Eating disorder. Drinking and doing drugs. But her drug of choice was cocaine. Heroin was never really an accusation other than that stupid sticker on her phone. And even then, no one accused her of actually doing it. Just that it was dumb.

Mooshki said...

"Amber Benson from Buffy?"

Bite your tongue! Amber is a badass! No way in hell she'd be this dumb.

EmEyeKay said...

I didn't know about the Cindy Lou thing! I saw that movie,had no idea who she was.

I really think #1 is Mila, in the photos I saw of the event it looks like she's gained a little weight. Could have been the dress.

b said...

Well, playing a little 'connect the dots' would point to Mila being the answer for #1, even though I wouldn't have guessed her otherwise.
Just read the other day about how when Emma Stone was with Keiran Culkin they did lots of cocaine. It mentioned how much the Culkins (notice the plural) LOVE blow. And who was dating a Culkin for years??

b said...

Just found where i read it.... Mooshki posted it on the CDAN facebook page, it was originally posted on ONTD

JasonBlueEyes said...

#Mooshki - Okay, Okay - I take it back. LoL.

Truthfully I just threw out names of actresses I loved at one point and wonder why they're not getting more work. Hey Casting agents - these women are awesome and are awesome to look at. please put them in more projects.

Lori said...

momsen has been hospitalized several times for exhaustion...

JJ said...

For #3 how about someone from the cast of Girlfriends? Tho all four main actresses have worked since the show ended, but given it was one of my favorite shows I like to think it's blind worthy.

brakewater said...

#2 = Charisma Carpenter from Angel. Was on for 5 years. Was originally known as a "monster of the week" show. It was on WB/UPN.

Since then, she posed in Playboy, had a minor stint on Veronica Mars and recently had 2 scenes in the Expendables. Maybe a made-for-tv movie on Lifetime.

It's perfect, in my book.

Sarah said...

For something different, how about Amanda Seyfried for #1? She's close to A list, with some leading roles but not really getting blockbuster roles yet. Lots of rumors about attitude whenever she has to do press events.
I know she did tv, she had a role on Veronica Mars.
Also, she was listed as an attendee for the St. Jude Gala, but I haven't seen photos of her. Mila is known to be down to earth, everyone at that military ball just loved her. I can imagine Mila partying, but I don't see her being a jerk about sick kids.

Mooshki said...

Jason, Amber has been doing a lot of work in independent films over the years - not just acting, but writing, directing, producing. She is amazing.

Charisma has been working fairly regularly. She's done medium-length stints on a number of shows. (She's on The Lying Game now.) She was also married for 6 years and has a kid, so I can't imagine this is her.

Why are you people hating on my Buffyverse?! ;)

Mooshki said...

(On the other hand, please feel free to guess Michelle Trachtenberg for any and all of the nastiest blinds. Frikkin' Dawn.)

Nerdista said...

I'm thinking it's Britney for 3. She was not so "innocent" and then dyed her hair black for "Radar" and then had to get her dad listed as her guardian. But I never guessed her for heroin!

CourtneyN said...

Last one is Britney. Not that "innocent". In hospital for exhaustion. Actress on Mickey Mouse Club.

CourtneyN said...

Britney is def on heroin. Erratic behavior, pretty radical weight gain, looking like she's nodding out (benzo use). My bet is she's been on methadone or suboxone to stay off it and has relapsed.

Nellie said...

What about one of those girls from one tree hill? The one who left a few years ago for number 2?

Nellie said...

As for the Britney guess for number 3, wasn't there a story about her being on Methadone not because of heroin use but to treat a psychological disorder?

I hope it's not her. I love her and so badly want her to thrive. The "innocent" wording really does make it seem like her though.

Mooshki said...

Britney is under way too close supervision for this to be her.

Bnl1016 said...

Britney also was not a child actress. The Mickey Mouse club was more of a variety show. She's no more a child actress than Christina.

Sarah said...

I hate to say it, but Selena may not be a bad guess for #3. I hope it's wrong.
There are several google hits for "Selena Gomez goes to the dark side" including one that says to the dark side of music. One is referencing a very adult look she wore to the VMAs and most are referencing Spring Breakers, a movie she's signed on for with very adult content (for her image, anyway).
It's well known that she's been hospitalized for exhaustion. She's one of the few Disney girls that can still write her own ticket so I really hope she is clean.

jjbear75 said...

1. Mila Kunis is a good guess. She looks like she is putting on weight. . .
2. Mischa Barton? The OC had 4 seasons that spanned 5 years.
3. Obv. Taylor M. Child Actress turned to the dark side of music. Demi Lovato still does pop. Not exactly dark side.

DixieTheNoble82 said...

I agree with the comments about Mila looking like she had put on some weight. There was a photo of her recently where I thought her face looked much fuller than in the recent past.

Makes me think that #1 is her even more. Boo!

MrPresident said...

10 Mila Kunis

CrazyCatLady said...

#3 isn't Britney. She's out of it for sure but not from heroin. IMO she's bi-polar and is being kept heavily medicated. If you track her past erratic behavior its a typical manic episode of someone who hasn't been treated. And the drugs can make you lose/gain weight. Its very hard to find the right drug cocktail and sometimes it has ti be changed every couple of years. Trust me. I know firsthand.

westward ho said...

wow. not one guess for lindsay for #3? or is she just off-limits as a topic here?

Sarah said...

There are a few guesses for Rooney as #1. I'm gonna point out the unlikelihood that she'd accept money to attend a charity function as she comes from an extreme wealthy family.

Sarah said...

@Westward Ho....
Lilo might be a good guess to be back on drugs but that would mean she had ever been off them

westward ho said...

@sarah: point. although she DOES seem the sort who'd make a big deal about "really getting clean this time, i swear!" and then noisily falling off right afterwards. or maybe i just assumed she had to get (relatively) clean while on probation, because of drug-testing?

Mooshki said...

Westward Ho, I don't think LiLo ever "turned to the dark side of music." She also didn't have drug testing as part of her probation. (Don't ask me why not.)

Sarah said...

I'm going to guess Page Hurd for #2. She was on Everyone Hates Chris which was on the CW for 5 seasons. She has had press for running wild, but only by a couple of African American media outlets. The last line that no one cares about the actress could be that she's not recognizable to most or a reference to the show's title. She was dating a sleazy older r&b singer, she was 19 and he was late twenties I think, he had leaked nude photos last year. The type to take advantage of younger girls

Marcha said...

Evan Rachel Wood for #3

Halfmad said...

Whoever said Charisma Carpenter for 2: Um, I know quite a few people who I'm sure would be QUITE interested if she was in a sex tape! Carry on...

Ice Angel said...

#1-Mila Kunis-she was probably using coke to lose all that weight for Black Swan

#2-I have absolutely no idea-not enough clues IMO-poor stupid little girl

#3-Taylor Momsen-no doubt in my mind

OMAMA is BROKO said...

whomever said Jlove Hewitt (sp?) for #2 great guess!!!

I came for the commenters guesses and hit gold.

I also think the "coke" ref for #1 would mean Lovato. But hey, at least she's still "working it." It works of you work it! ;)

ecua said...

Jennifer Love Hewitt headlined a successful show, so no way she's #2.
I'm guessing someone from the Disney Channel or Nickelodeon or something like that. How about that girl sidekick from That's So Raven. Annalese VanderPol (IMDB'd it.)

Kiani said...

#3 - Ashlee Simpson

julieb said...

My first thought for #1 was Michelle Williams, though she may be more than "just about A list." She has been at event after event as part of her Oscar campaign, and she started out on television on Dawson's Creek.

Garfield Jones said...

Definitely not Jodie Resther.
