Today's Blind Items

#1 - This supposedly happy couple featuring a Twilight actress is only happy on one side of the equation. The actress in question has been sexting one of her ex boyfriends and making plans to see him.


#2 - Back not so very long ago this then A+ list television actor guest starred on the number one show at that time which was on the air for many years. The actor was and is married at the time. His role was as the boyfriend of one of the characters. Well, while filming his arc he quickly ended up hooking up with this other actress on the show who is an A list movie actress now. That relationship did not break up our actor's marriage but it broke up her long term relationship.

1: every one except Bella and her vampire
2:Michel Vartan and Jennifer Garner (just because)

MommaSaid said...

1. Nikki Reed

Patty said...

#1 - the one who just married an Idol contestent.

#2 - I want to say Friends for the show, but gawd, don't tell me Jen A is A-list movies. More like A-1 box office poison.

J said...

A+ TV star= Tom Selleck
Boyfriend of Monica on Friends
Hooked up with Jennifer Anistion, who broke up with Tate Donavan

Vicki Cupper said...

Nice one, J.

selenakyle said...

I second MommaSaid's Nikki Reed guess and J's scenario above.

Good guessing, peeps!

RenoBlondee said...

^Yep, me too!
But, I do hope it's not Nikki though since she's freshly married. That sucks. :( Maybe it's Ashley Greene?

Unknown said...

J - that was an amazingly fast guess - totally agree.

spacecowboy78 said...

Think J is definitely correct on both. Also think Ashley Greene doesn't have time for a relationship since she's banging her way through the whole film industry.

evergrey said...

Oooh, that's juicy @J! I like it

Del Riser said...

First thing I thought too J. Good one.

califblondy said...

Tom isn't married anymore?

Basil said...

You guys are fast. Good work.

Tempestuous Grape said...

Very very juicy, Juicy J! Love it.

Beth said...

J, I was going to say the same thing!

Great minds...

Sadie said...

This must be skeptical day for me but how does one get blinds like this? Like how do you know about one star texting another star. Are there maids, personal assistants and the link spilling the beans? And if so, wouldn't they surely be jeopardizing a prized income by doing so?

Also...How is Jen A considered an A Lister when all her shit flops?

mingreader said...

But if the BI about AJ and RP was true (noise complaints about loud sex during BD promotion in Europe) then it could be KStew with Oregano.

mingreader said...

Whoops, AG and RP.

renay83 said...

The timing does seem to fit for Anniston and Selleck but this one really bums me out. I lose all respect for women who sleep with married men - especially when there are children involved.

cdanluva said...

Hawkeye and Hot Lips?

Klinger and Hot Lips? (Although I don't think Klinger was considered A+ list)

J said...

yeah for sure! who would of thought that Magnum PI was partially responsible for unleashing branglina!!

BigMama said...

Love it J - totally agree

discoflux said...

Here's my first ever BI guess:

A+ list TV actor at the time: Harry Connick, Jr., married to Victoria's Secret model Jill Goodacre


A list movie actress: Minnie Driver (At least I think she's had some worthy roles that still keep her A list)though I'm not sure who she was dating

I know that I'm probably way off.

I don't know much, but I do know one thing for an absolute fact. It's definitely without a doubt NOT Tom Selleck. My friend was his driver for 7 years. Tom Selleck is 100% gay. He does not sleep with women at all.

Also, it doesn't specify whether the show was a comedy or a drama.

libby said...

crila16, I've heard exactly the same thing, from waiting on a Hollywood type (probably a bigwig agent--LOTS of $$$) here in Indianapolis. He was tipsy and whispering 'secrets' to his two table-mates. He thought I was not behind him when he whispered his 'biggie' about TS. When he realized I was there, he turned so red and was so flustered that I KNEW he at least believed it was true.
Tom is married, though. But you NEVER see his wife, as far as I know.

The Black Cat said...

Get out, Magnum PI plays on the other team?

uberbaldy said...

I have to agree with crila16. I don't buy it being Selleck at all. To begin with he is a tv and film actor and I feel that distinction is always made with these BI's. He may be well known for his Magnum days but he is also well known for his numerous films from the same time frame. Also the BI says, "then A+ list" and Selleck wasn't doing anything at that time on TV. I'd say with that in mind he would be a B+/A list and also it seems to lead us to believe this actor isn't so hot anymore and Selleck is in that new show Blue Bloods and garners attention for guest spots. Third, the BI says "Not so very long ago" Selleck's arc on Friends was in '96, 16 years ago! I'd consider that definitely a long time ago. Finally, Aniston broke up with Donovan in '98 2 years AFTER Selleck was on friends. Sure it could have led to things falling apart 2 years later but how likely is that?

crila16 said...

That's a funny story Libby.

@Black Cat...yes he does play for the other team, and I'm 100% positive. I was so upset when I found out, cause he's hot. My friend also said he's a really super sweet guy and was always very nice to her.

Earaik said...

Ashley Greene for the first
Noah Wiley and Jennifer Anniston, breaking up her and Tate Donovan.

uberbaldy said...

I like the Noah Wiley guess but same problem as Selleck in regards to Aniston and Donovan. Wyle was on Friends in '95 the same year Aniston and Donovan STARTED dating. No way he broke them up.

I have a guess but I'm not certain about it because I wouldn't consider the actor A+ at the time. I'm going with:
Jonathan Frakes hooking up with Katherine Heigl on Roswell which led to her break up with Jason Behr.

crila16 said...

Hank Azaria maybe, though don't know if he was ever A+? He played Phoebe's boyfriend. Paul Rudd would have been a good guess too, except he's more A movie, not TV, unless Enty meant to say movie.

SaintsFan said...

First of all, I'm going to cry my eyes out over Tom Selleck. Thanks a lot y'all! 2nd, I think Friends was way too long ago for this blind as it says "back not so very long ago".

BigMama said...

What about that show Gilmore Girls. Didn't the daughter on that show have a "well known" boyfriend? Time to Google

RenoBlondee said...

Dang! I never once got a gay vibe from Tom S, ever. That is crazy! Wow. I believe you guys though.

media_lush said...

no ones mentioned Bruce Willis on Friends.... he was jen's boyfriend = A+ from Moonlighting... but wouldn't call Courtney A movie

Mango said...

My answer to any Twilight blind is always going to be Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Those are the only actors I know from that franchise. Speaking of which, how many fucking Twilight movies are there? And how many more to film? I got it into my head that it was a trilogy, but apparently not.

@ J - I like the idea of Jennifer Aniston and Friends, but I've long heard that Tom Selleck is gay. Some other actors who guested on the show: Sean Penn, Bruce Willis, Ben Stiller, Charlie Sheen, Alec Baldwin, Danny DeVito (!!) and Jean-Claude Van Damme (TWICE the Van Damage!) I still watch Friends in syndication and I NEVER see the Brad Pitt episode. I wonder if Brad paid off someone?

Now, back to the blind, what does "The actor was and is married at the time" mean?

tealily said...

Why do we think this is Friends? I have to agree with uberbaldy, that was so long ago now. I'm thinking something more recent, let's see...

DixieTheNoble82 said...

Sometimes I like the comments better than the post itself. ;0]

I've got nothing for either. I liked the TS/JA guess until I read further. I def. wasn't able to picture them hooking up but thought it could have been possible..

uberbaldy said...

Oh I like the Gilmore girls guess but the only notable guest star on that show that could be considered A+ is Adam Brody who played the boyfriend of Alexis Bledel's characters best friend. Which could work with him hooking up with Alexis but neither of them fit the description.

zeldafitzgerald said...

tom selleck is gay?

Mooshki said...

Sadie, I think Libby just answered your question about where these stories come from. :) Actors are narcissists, so they brag about their exploits to friends and acquaintances, and eventually it leaks out.

Mooshki said...

American Idol has been the #1 show since 2003, so it can't be that recent. Leaving out other reality tv:

2002 CSI
2001 Friends
1994-98 ER & Seinfeld switching back & forth

Icecat said...

I agree with media_lush. Bruce Willis guest starred on Friends. He was my first thought!

fairylights said...

Forget the blinds, the info that Tom Selleck is definitely gay is much more interesting. I never, ever picked up a ping from him, dang!

Basil said...

I thought Tom Selleck quietly came out of the closet when he did In and Out with Kevin Kline? You know, it's a real shame that people are reacting like this, as if it is some sort of big deal or a big secret. Sounds like he is obviously out in Hollywood, and I don't recall him ever making anti-gay statements to give himself protective colouring. And despite his sex symbol status in the 80's, I don't recall him being touted as a ladies man, so I can't see why this is shocking news.

Anotheramy said...

No guesses but what actresses are A list movie now? Maybe back track.

I never once got a gay vibe from Tom Selleck but, he did have the gay porn mustache going. Anyone ever read "the Cat Who" books? I think the author had TS in mind when she wrote them.

Char said...

If we really are talking about tv shows that were number 1, within the last 10 years or so... it HAS to be Friends or CSI.

And since I wouldn't consider any of the actresses from CSI to be anywhere above B-list, and even then, ONLY in TV, definitely not movies... it HAS to be Jennifer Aniston. The only other possibility is that Enty is unaware of which shows are actually #1. Or perhaps he's only counting scripted shows (as the number 1 show since 2005 has been American Idol).

However, Friends was only #1 from 2001-2002... long after Jen and Tate Donovan had already broken up, and she was already with Brad Pitt. So... I can't explain this blind. There's no way to make it work.

FluffyElmo said...

What about Grey's Anatomy with Heigl as the A lister? Grey's was at least number one drama at some point during her run I think.

GladysKravitz said...

I've always thought that Tom Selleck could have been the fifth member of the Village People. THat's all.

uberbaldy said...

@Mooshki and @Char It doesn't HAVE to be friends. The blind clearly says the A+ actor was a guest star who PLAYED a boyfriend on the show. That immediately eliminates American Idol since they don't have roles on that show. It's a scripted show that was #1. How about non-network shows such as The Soprano's or The Wire? Both have been off the air for at least 4 years and both were big hits.

lzahart said...

I don't think its correct to say Friends was only #1 for a year. It was the top-rated comedy on TV for most if not all of its run.

That being said I'm trying to figure out who it could be on Friends if not Selleck or Rudd (I don't think the timing works there and he isn't A list TV). I have always thought there was something up btwn JA and P. Rudd though... lucky bitch if its true. So maybe it isn't Friends at all, it can't really be Seinfeld bc there was only one real principal actress on the show. I don't watch CSI so can't say. Err....

lzahart said...

oooh @uberbaldy you have invoked the name of The Wire and I love you for that but I don't think anyone on the Wire is A list at the point nor do I think at the time of airing The Wire was ever very highly rated. It almost got yanked after S3 because of rating among other things. So if this is the Wire... I'm going to guess Omar & Kima :) but I'm guessing its not, at all. The Sopranos however... didn't Edie Falco get divorced while it was on the air or shortly after?

Monty said...

Maybe he is bisexual and not gay. Aren't many people fluid with their sexuality? Perhaps what is more important to him is the Relationship, he seems pretty monogamous to me.

None of it matters to me though because
Tom Selleck's hot hot hotness won't quit!

Monty said...

I just bypassed the blind this post is actually about because I never get them right.

1: the one that just got married with the main vampire guy

2: people from a long running show that was cancelled or ended recently...
Scrubs
ER
Lost
Ugly Betty?

or one that has dropped in ratings more recently:
Grey's Anatomy

yeah I give up

J said...

Errr... I don't know team. Is there any STRAIGHT actors in Hollywood?

Everytime I read the blind's Enty SOMEONE IS ALWAYS LABELLED AS GAY.
So I sorta question the validity of the gay comments.

I am not thinking the Friends vibe at all.

This feels a little more Desperate Housewives, Dexter, The Sorpano's to me.
