Four For Friday - The Tutor

Don't forget that every Saturday I reach into the cushions of my parent's couch and find a blind item to reveal that has never been revealed before. Could be from last year or three years ago. Also, make sure you follow me on Twitter (the birdie link is over there somewhere)---------> because I post blind items there that I don't do on here. Plus observations from my daily life.


So, as you may know, when you are a minor and on a film set or a television set, you still need to go to school. Well, to take care of that thorny issue, tutors are hired and pretend to work with the children until they can be called back to the set and work.

I wrote about one tutor way back in the day, but wanted to tell you about a guy who was a particularly vile guy. He died not too long ago and he took the virginity of about half a dozen celebrities you would know but all told he probably did the same thing to 50 or 60 teens. It might have been more. No one ever did or said anything about it. One time one actress complained and she was fired. Another time an actress told the tutor that she actually had lost her virginity to an actor on the show so the tutor made up some thing about the actor and had him fired. The tutor did not like to share. The tutor would eventually be accused of sexual assault or he would get some girl pregnant and he would move on to another studio or another employer. He never had any trouble getting hired.

#1 - One actress who was A list back in the day when the tutor slept with her and is now probably a B- with some big time tabloid relationships in her past once said the tutor slept with every teen under 16 on the cast of her show. To do that he must have been very busy because there were about 100 teens that walked through that show at some point.

#2 & #3- This actress who was B list at the time it happened and on a very hit network comedy show says the tutor is the reason so many of her relationships now are so messed up and that she started taking drugs to ease the pain. This actress had one more middling show after the first. The second was a spin off. As a point of reference she also said that after the tutor had sex with her, her co-star (A list at the time and now a reality C) and very famous user of women had sex with her too almost everyday even though he would sleep with different women at night.

#4 - More recently, the tutor made his way through several networks which cater to children. He found lots and lots of teens there. His most recent assault, because lets face it that is what they are, happened on the set of a very hit tween show. Like very very hit tween show which is still airing. The second lead female co-star had just turned 17 when she was assaulted by the guy. She complained to the head of the show who had been a television star himself and he fired the tutor. It turns out the tutor had sex with two of his former co-stars on a hit network show back in the day.

Wow. I need Dramamine after reading this.

Kelsey said...

So wow, this is pretty disgusting.

L said...

Gross! I hope he gets arrested and this doesn't get covered up to protect his former employers!

#4 would be iCarly, Jennette McCurdy, Dan Schneider as the show runner/former actor, Head of the Class as the show he used to be on with other teen girls.

Candice said...

Im thinkin the last one is Sam from iCarly but I dont know if shes 17 yet. Maybe the first is Degrassi?

LeeLeeMar said...

Candice said...

I guess she does have a real name, I called her Sam lol.

Jolene Jolene said...

Jerry Sandusky? Oh wait.

MISCH said...

Good thing he's dead or I might just get violent.

BigMama said...

I was thinking Lisa Bonnet for the second one but I don't know if she really fits.

love/hate said...

He's dead right? So put a few "allegedly"s in there and name the bastard. I hope those assaulted get help and speak out.

L said...

#2/3 makes me think of Erin Moran from Happy Days & Joanie Loves Chachi, Scott Baio being the former A-list now reality C...but that was 30 years ago. Could still be the same pervy perp, I suppose.

Princess said...

L said...
Gross! I hope he gets arrested
--------------------
See above the blinds - "He died not too long ago..."

Andy said...

Why do I suspect Jamie Lynn Spears is in this mix somewhere? because I don't believe for a minute Casey was the daddy.

Cathy said...

Good guess, L! I was thinking 2 and 3 could be from the Brady Bunch, but that didn't quite fit and was probably too long ago. I like your guess better!

Mamaroni said...

I second the Erin Moran since Scott Nail was the first user to come to mind. I'm really sad for Sam.

Please name this guy! What it's wrong with these studios?

Momster said...

Yeah, I'm thinking Erin Moran for #2.

Sick bastard.

Mamaroni said...

Supposed to say Baio...grrr auto correct

middnites said...

I was thinking #1 is Amanda Bynes, show being All That which has 10 seasons with a revolving cast, including Jamie Lynn Spears on a Later season.
Either that or Amanda Bynes is #2 Original show is All That, spin off The Amanda Show. I don't know a reality costar she had though

middnites said...

Ok Got it
#1: ?
#2: Amanda Bynes on All that for hit comedy, spin off show The Amanda Show, co-start on Amanda Show was
#3:Maureen Mccormick (Marsha Brady) who was on Celebrity Fit Club for her Reality Show
#4: iCarly Jeannette Mccormick, telling Dan Schneider from Head of class

discoflux said...

I hate this blind. He's essentially revealing these people being sexually assaulted and/or molested. Maybe someone should have opened their mouth when this piece of crap was alive.

Chris said...

I guess this is the type of stuff Corey Feldman was talking about.

Mamaroni said...

The only shows I can think of for #1 is the MMC or All That...but who

Jolene Jolene said...

I don't get why no one said anything either. Considering so much of working in Hollywood, from bit parts to production assistants, etc., is about who you know, HOW did these studios who hired him not know what he had done to children at previous companies/studios? He's just a tutor. I'm not saying it's ever okay for big producers/directors/studio heads/stars to molest children, but it seems like these things are covered up more often when the molester is someone in power. How much power does a tutor have? I don't get it.

Mamaroni said...

Ok so
1-Amanda Bynes
2-Erin Moran
3-Scott Baio
4-Jennette McCurdy

WE Need to be figuring out his name and all those involved in the coverups instead.

Nellie said...

He was just a tutor! Why didn't someone stop him / kill him?

And let's clear this up right now. It was rape. Not assault, not some lesser evil. Rape.

Ditte said...

Is it just me, or are the blinds especially nasty these days? I feel sick to my stomach.

SkittleKitty said...

For those saying "just name the guy", unless one of his victims is willing to put it on record somewhere, naming him would reveal his victims (and further victimize them).

He's disgusting, and fortunately, he's rotting in hell.

Now, if Enty knew a lot of this, say before the later incidents took place (and the guys death) and the guy kept on working, then we have a problem with Enty. I'm guessing this all came to light after the guy croaked (or, pretty please, was viciously and painfully killed).

Amartel said...

So we couldn't have heard about this BEFORE this asshole tutor died?
If not, why not?
If not, how is this situation any different than Penn State and the Catholic Church?
Seriously, think it over.

anita_mark said...

In addition to when this was known and why was nothing done, I find it weird that this guy was able to have actors fired. Like others said, he was just a tutor. If this was a producer or director or someone with money/power, I'd get it. I'd be still disgusted and horrified but I'd get it. But a tutor???

WUWT? said...

The head of the show in #4 knew what the guy was like from his own days on a show and hired him anyway? What's up with that?

("Oh, I guess he didn't change. I'll fire him then." Yeah, right.)

WUWT? said...

Five or six or ten or twenty of the girls should get together and ALL go public. No way to shame them into silence when they are all saying the same thing. It'll be like other cases--once a few come forward, a torrential downfall of accusations follow. Let it begin.

Erin said...

anita_mark, I was thinking the same thing. Tutors are important, but they don't seem like they should have that kind of power on a set. Maybe he had dirt on a lot of people so he kept his job. I'm glad someone finally stepped up & fired him. I can't believe how long it seems like it went on for. I agree with others that it mirrors the whole Penn State keep it quiet approach.

L said...

@EmEyeKay -- what comments from Himmmm? Where? I haven't heard anything about Dan Schneider, good or bad, but I know he's been making tweener shows forever.

crila16 said...

This is sick. I hope this man is burning in hell. Where were these children's parents??? When you're a minor, aren't the parents supposed to be on set?

#1...I don't think it's Amanda, because I can't think of any bigtime tabloid relationships in her past. Amanda said she also has retired from acting, so can she still be a B-?

#2....Erin from Happy Days

#3...Scott Baio

#4...I guess iCarly. Don't really know the cast members.

I'm glad this man is gone. Now he can't harm anyone else.

laura said...

I just checked "studio teachers" on IMBD for iCarly. Only three listed, and all in the industry 10 years and under it seems.

tgwtdt said...

This is just sick. I hope he's enjoying hell.

Himmmm said...

Go back and READ the comments by L - they are correct.

As for Dan S.?
You were right about probably messing up his game. He's a monster. The WORST predator alive. And if you wonder why nobody will confront or charge him? He's in charge of multiple HIT SHOWS for Nick which rakes in oceans of money. Tens of millions of dollars multiplied by many years and many shows (not to mention his merchandising royalties). So Viacom-Nick warn him to cool it - then pay for his damn lawyers.

What about the parents? No tweener parent who shoved their kid into the limelight from birth is going to cross him either, and risk career suicide and loss of revenue (and residuals and future career). No matter how bad it fucks up the kids. Especially if there's MULTIPLE kid actors in the family. And the kid's agents are complicit too. Just ask the Spears family. A LOT of settlements get paid out of Viacom's accounts.

As for the rest of the guesses - I wish I had time to read and think and ask others but I have to run. I do know the Joanie Loves Chachi and the Erin Moran thing were correct. Good guessing "L"...now, WHO was that big shot Tutor?? So well connected?

SaintsFan said...

I hope this is never revealed for the simple fact the blind is trying to get people to guess the victims, not the asshole who did it. Victims should remain anonymous.

A007Belle said...

What about saved by the bell for number 2/3? I thought of Mario Lopez as womanizer and c list reality star now... Plus, there were some spin-offs from that show (and I think it was on NBC)

crila16 said...

@Hmmmm...How do you know all this about Dan Schneider?

Sherry said...

For what it matters a friend of mine worked on the set of Roseanne as a tutor and she truly cared about the kids. It's their job to act almost as welfare officers so when a kid says he or she I'd too tired to work, regardless of how few hours they have worked, they make sure that child is pulled off the set. She would NOT let the execs bully her into making the kids work and I respected her tremendously for that.
We all know predators work where they have easy access to their prey and this is exactly what he did. Not sure how he had so much power to get the child fired unless as her supposed "advocate" told them she refused to work.

lzahart said...

Yay Himmmmmm! Your explanation makes perfect sense, sadly, in our current world. And based on your prior posts either you are the best liar ever or you have inside info that I will trust.

I think #1 has to be a show older than #2/#3 bc of the back in the day comment... so if #2/3 is Happy Days and Joanie Loves Chachi, what could #1 be?

Finally wrt Himmmm's comment, I wonder if any high-powered celebs or agents or producers, etc have any relatives who were on-set tutors-- maybe that's where the power comes from? Bc it is wierd that a tutor would have the power to get an actor fired.

Mamaroni said...

@A007Belle- I thought of him too, but the only spin off from sbtb with continuing cast members was the college years, and I don't think tiff (the only girl who was on) sounds like victim #2.

I do wish some victims could find some strength to come forward, but I can't say what I would do if I were in there shoes. This type of cover up activity needs to stop

FS said...

This blind makes me sick and angry. It makes me want to stop watching TV and movies and supporting this industry in any way. These were young girls, they were RAPED and many, many people looked the other way and not one single person called the police or protected these girls. For what, a few dollars?

I would love nothing more than to see a bunch of these girls get together and file a civil lawsuit against Dan Schneider for the recent shenanigans. Even if the lawsuit fails, his behavior will be brought into the public eye.

MAC said...

There was a blind years ago about a girl on a tween show that got pregnant by an adult (producer, maybe?) and had an abortion. Amanda Bynes was the popular guess for that...

EmEyeKay said...

Kari said...

I am sick to my stomach.

Dianne P said...

I don't know, I kind of don't believe it. So many former child/teen stars have opened up about things like drug abuse, eating disorders, etc. I have a hard time thinking that at least one of the victims wouldn't have spoken out about it or written about it in a tell-all.

Nosey said...

anyone have a guess on the Lainey blind?

She’s supposed to be the doting mother. Ask the people who help her with her kids. They certainly don’t agree.

First of all she’s never around. And when she’s present she’s distant, not only not involved, but almost irresponsible about it. One of her children may have developmental challenges. As such, diet can exacerbate the issue. Since she can only spend so much time with her children, and often slotted in like appointments in her schedule, she doesn’t bother observing the food requirements that can help with the child’s behaviour. Mom supplies junk food because it’s quick and dirty so that she can get out of there that much faster. When the kid acts out because of the sh-t he’s just consumed, she’s incapable of dealing with it and takes off anyway.

It’s left then to the staff to raise her family. How does she treat them? Nannies’ cell phones are confiscated at 8am and not returned until 10pm. There’s a trusting and kind working environment, non? Totally encourages loyalty.

As you expect, bosses like this always play favourites. Her favourite? Curiously enough, it’s the bodyguard. He’s been seen rubbing her feet. Of course that had nothing to do with the separation ...even though the foot massages have been happening for a while now.

It’s not Gwyneth Paltrow

msgirl said...

Between yesterday's blind and this one, I am so sad. And outraged that this isn't exposed so the abusers go to jail. Hollywood is just so sick that this gets swept under when so many know about it.

Unknown said...

#1 Melissa Gilbert from Little House on the Prairie seems to fit the blind.

L said...

@ Himmmm -- Thank you! Oh, it grosses me out to hear about guys like Dan Schneider being pervert criminals with a license to rape because of their worth to the studios. I know why it goes unreported -- besides the he said/she said aspect, the fact is that money talks and payoffs are huge, and once the kids are old enough to speak up, they can't violate the terms of the payoff deal and the statute of limitations has passed anyway. I don't want my kids anywhere near Hollywood.

I posted this before but I think it disappeared -- what about Shannen Doherty / 90210 for blind #1?

Unknown said...

The Lainey blind sounds like Sarah Palin.

crila16 said...

@Unknown. I actually thought about that too. Melissa Gilbert also had a very high profile, tabloid relationship with Rob Lowe and Bruce her husband (or ex husband). She's definitely was an A list, but I would say now she is a B-, cause if she were on a new TV show, her name would be a big draw (dancing with the stars). Also, it would be around the same time as Happy Days.

Mutiny said...

Nosey said...

@ unknownn, good guess!!! i was thinking heidi klum, she has a brood of kids, but i like sarah palin for this one

izz said...

If Enty wanted to write about this i would have preferred he did it as a post, getting people to guess the identities of rape victims is gross

Jolene Jolene said...

For the Lainey blind--Heidi Klum or JLo? Though Heidi is the first one that popped into my head, I have heard in the past how great her and Seal are/were to their help...JLo makes more sense to me.

flip said...

I am glad the truth behind the mystique of the industry is getting revealed. The more people can put faces with the numerous awful things that have to go on to 'get famous', the fewer people who will push their kids into it.

The tutor must have been a relative of someone in power that was able to influence talent hiring/firings. I wouldn't be surprised if the obit was in LA Times or Variety other trade mag.

It also reinforces my strong belief that none of the players that people feel 'must be so nice, I feel so badly for them when something goes wrong' are even half of what they present to the public. Cocaine to stay thin, multiple flings to satisfy ego, trading sex for parts, free swag when the pay scale is so distorted, treatment of those who assist them, etc. I am not sure many people who post who would want to be friends with any of them...

feraltart said...

Bring it into the light Enty. Anyone who was thinking of letting their children into the business hopefully is reconsidering or planning to be a force to protect their children.
Himmm, are there any people fit to work with children? I don't want to tar everyone in Hollywood with the same brush, or is that the best thing to do?

crila16 said...

OMG...I just read it Hmmmm. I always thought Amanda Bynes was so well adjusted. I knew she had had some work done on her face (I think), but she always seemed like a good kid. I guess #1 is Amanda. SHe's in Room 23, so she's friends with Psycho Bitch lady.

Jolene Jolene said...

jetfuelgenius said...

I really should be working instead of doing this but... :)

I scoured imdb for Head of the Class, Saved by the Bell and iCarly, and Happy Days, and Little House on the Prairie for a set teacher who worked on more than one show....the only show that even lists an on set tutor credit is iCarly, and the only male was a guy who is only 39, way too young to have worked on any older shows.

I wonder if what someone already pointed out is true - a relative? Someone's brother/cousin etc. that the studios were trying to keep happy? Or the other alternative is someone in cahoots with a star or producer, and was something of a pimp/procurer...

Sometimes I really get stuck on one of these...I used to be a reporter so I guess it's in my blood... :)

Whoever this guy is though, I cannot imagine he is the only slimeball....I honestly think anyone who allows their children in show business is absolutely crazy....as I've said before...every famous person I've ever met or gotten to know had some weird issue (drugs, perversion, embezzling, drinking, just plain kooky, whatever....) and it's made me so glad to be a total nobody with a simple little life.

East Village Gypsy said...

Good job, L!

Himmmm, are there any decent normal people left in Hollywood? I am beginning to wonder

discoflux said...

Just got around to reading @Himmmm's comments yesterday and today.

First, good for you for taking care of business!

Second, it kills me to hear this type of thing being essentially an accepted evil in the industry. The sexual abuse I suffered as a child has had an ENORMOUS impact on my life. I can't imagine it being not only condoned, but encouraged, while being plied with drugs and alcohol.

Thankfully with love and support, I was able to keep my life on a relatively straight path, less a couple of episodes in my 20s where booze was my bestie.

Something should be said or done by someone but, the love of money is the root of all evil and nothing makes that more evident that this type of industry-wide behavior.

FrenchGirl said...

how can a tutor have so many powers??

FS said...

I agree, perhaps we should stop guessing the names of rape victims and just focus on hating this slime and everyone who let him get away with his crimes.

Himmmm, thanks again for stopping by. Sorry I missed you.

Seachica said...

If tma tutor fails a student, does that cause the child star to be fired? If so, that could give a tutor a helluva lot of power on set

Cousin said...

The Lainey Blind SCREAMS Kate Gosselin. I always thought one of the sextuplets looked developmentally challenged. Numerous stories of several of the kids being disruptive/having issues at school. Story recently about one of the kids going under the family bus to retrieve something while mom was behind the wheel. Also we here at CDAN are more than familiar with the rumors of Kate and her bodyguard dude.

It all just seems to fit.

surfer said...

Hmmmm - if you see this, I left you a note under yesterday's blind.

selenakyle said...

Yet we see Toddlers & Tiaras and Dance Moms on TV every week.

SICK AND DISGUSTING

Cousin said...

Also, this may be of interest:

http://studioteacherreportcard.com/

It has a LONG list of studio teachers registered in CA. I didn't have the time to peruse each of the male listings, but if some of you sleuths out there have the time (and motivation) maybe try cross-referencing the names listed on that site with known tutors from shows like iCarly and the likes and THEN see if any of those tutors recently died.

Ok, I'm out.

selenakyle said...

O M F GGG!

I just now read Himmmm's comments from yesterday.

All I can say is:

1) is Himmmm RDJ? If so, I am in love with your portrayal in the first Sherlock Holmes movie;

and

2) To quote Ida Blankenship from recently: HO.LEE.SHIT.BALLS.

lzahart said...

@selena right there w you didn't read yesterday's comments until now... wow... I think that if Himmmmm is not who you say they have a hell of a lot in common, like a crazy amount in common. It would be so awesome if it was, but I don't want Himmmm (or Herrrr) in trouble for this. And yes 2x on the IDA quote that stuff from yesterday was crazy and scary and very, very sad.

surfer said...

@selena (and others) - I'm afraid if we ID Hmmmm, he may be reluctant to come back (although that'a great guess, lol).

RenoBlondee said...

^^ Me too Selena and Iza
I am blown away right now. Fuck.

Sis Cesspool said...

I'm still laughing at Gwyneth Paltrow's appearance on The Chew today. When asked what she should would call her website if she didn't name it Goop, she responded with spoiledwhiterichgirl.com

At the :53 mark

http://beta.abc.go.com/shows/the-chew/videos/PL55125609/_m_VD55177706

selenakyle said...

I'm hearing y'all. Do NOT want to look a gift horse in the mouf...

Slightly OT:
Has anyone ever known/figured out whence the GOOP moniker anyway? (dunno cuz I'm not a fan...)

I figured it's her inits? Like maybe short for Gwyneth Olivia Octavia Paltrow or something?

Whatever, I must go fee my husband now.

Damn, my mind is blown.

selenakyle said...

Fuck. FEED.

Rose said...

Why do people think himmmm is RDJ?

selenakyle said...

Looking at D. Jenkins' photos online I'm convinced she's the older woman in those boat pix w/ Hayden.

Wow. I've not read goss like this evahhhhh.

MadLyb said...

I think this is unbelievable - but another part of me isn't surprised. Any institution run largely by the "Good 'ol boys" club - old white powerful men, is going to have sexual abuse of children. It's a power thing. When you can't find submissive women, you start looking for children. This is repulsive. I'd like to know where this creep is buried because I'd make a special trip just to spit on his grave.

Popcorn Sutton said...

I just want to say that I have had a crush on RDJ since I was twelve years old. That aside, this blind is disgusting, but unfortunately, not surprising.

Popcorn Sutton said...

Oh and I think the Lainey Blind is supposed to be Angie "Leg" Jolie.

selenakyle said...

@popcorn-- I also thought perhaps AJ for the Lainey Blind. I recall seeing various photos of the kids eating from bags of Doritos and Cheetos, etc. while out and about.
I know a ton of kids eat junk food snacks...but you'd think most celebs would not allow such.

Plus, the talk about Knox and/or Viv...

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

Himmmm: Is anyone in Hollywood a decent human being? (Besides you and your wife, that is.) I'm sure at least some of them have to be... *looks hopeful*

AFAIK, the majority of musicians I've met over the years have been basically good people--they have their quirks and flaws, as we all do, but at heart they know what's right and wrong, and try to live by the former. Some definitely have their issues, mind you; some of those have wised up w/age and sobriety, others not so much...but I don't think I've heard anything about any of them that comes close to what you've told us about the past couple of days. Or am I just too naive and wanting to believe the best of people?... *sigh*

Candice said...

I think the Lainey blind is Kate G. Id say AJ but shes not separated(is she?). Also whoever himmmm is he must have a big part of hollywood or he wouldnt know all of this but I dont want to guess. Revealing these things are SO important & I love Enty more for not deleting it. Especially after yesterdays comment. I have two daughters and they will have to kill me before I let them anywhere near this industry.

Sasha said...

Wow x1000000. I also just read yesterdays blind comments. The general public puts most stars on such high pedestals that it is shocking to know what truly happens behind closed doors. Consenting ADULTS can do whatever but if it involves children (and animals) expose it.

Anotheramy said...

My guess is y'all got this one. My guess for the Lainey blind is Kate G. My guess for Himmms identity is that hes not even close to RDJ but loves that you're all guessing that he is.
My guess is that Himmm is someone in Hwood who works behind the scenes. I am very please when anyone beats their demons and good luck to you in your new life.

Netta said...

I have to give mad props to Himmm for how he's turned his life around. That is not easy to do, no matter what your circumstances. The way he is grateful for today, admits he's not perfect -- well, his wife is very lucky.

As for this blind -- I hold the parents every bit as responsible as this disgusting POS and they should ALL fry. How a parent can consciously put their child in the path of such harm is beyond my comprehension. For what? Money? Fame? Seriously? You sacrificed innocent children for money?

I keep thinking of those poor kids with NO ONE in their corner and I'm sick to my soul. No wonder so many of them grew up to be so fucked up. How do you get over knowing your own parents...Jezuz,I have to stop there. I cannot comprehend this. I just can't.

Ida Blankenship said...

Uh, all I can say is that I hope Enty reveals this one eventually, and that I'm glad I just waited for you all to come up with some guesses. I have no fucking clue. Gross, regardless.

Regarding the Lainey blind: she doesn't waste her time on reality people. She's never posted ANYTHING about a Kardashian, for instance. Abd the Gosselins are soooooo 2008. There is NO WAY she would write anything about Kate. Sorry.

And Angelina hasn't faced a separation lately. I think our best candidates are Heidi, Nicole Richie, or J-Lo.

Ida Blankenship said...

That's supposed to be "and," not "abd." I was out drinking. Time for bed. :-/

Daphnie said...

I am sure, just like yesterday's blind, that the details have been change to protect liability. (Thanks Himmmmmm)

That being said, this douche bag was probably not a tutor. That is probably one of the changed details.

Dangerous D said...

Could it be Chuck Yerger? You may remember him from the "phone a friend" lifeline used by Lance Bass on Celebrity Millionaire a loooong time ago.

This guy was an on-set tutor for Disney and Nickelodeon for several years, and has an extensive roster of famous former students.

http://www.cyberspacers.com/exclusive/08030001.html

http://www.cyberspacers.com/exclusive/08030002.html

Could find an obit on him though. :/

Mutiny said...

Netta, I got your book from Amazon, good read. Are you going to publish any more or did I miss it?

Ditte said...

I see Himmmm's comment as an indirect confirmation Britney was abused growing up in the industry. I always got that Vibe from her. No wonder she has been mentally unstable.

Netta said...

Thanks, Mutiny! I'm so happy you enjoyed it.

"Athena's Chains" and "Athena's Release" are both scheduled to release this year. Right now I'm up to my eyeballs in editing Other People's Work, so juggling time is an challenge. But yes, I plan to have the trilogy completed this year if it kills me :)

Thanks again! That made my week.

Melody Clark said...

Any powerful, extremely lucrative industry will be seized in some respects by powerful psychopaths. Washington, DC has a power pedophile network, too, and has for years. Unfortunately, until recently, they've been too powerful to confront.

I think it's fairly easy to guess who Himmmm may be from stuff he's said in the past, but I'd like to suggest we NOT solve that particular blind item. The information he relates is too important. He definitely places himself in some jeopardy by imparting it.

Anotheramy said...

Based on Idas assertion that Lainey doesnt bother with reality starts (WTG Lainey!) I move my vote to JLO as Ive heard good things about Heidi and Seals parenting.

Sunnyhorse said...

Wasn't Jamie Lynn Spears rumored to have been pregnant by a Nickelodeon exec? Was it, perhaps, Dan Schneider?

Mutiny said...

Netta, you're welcome. I really enjoyed it and this is the first time I have 'me't an author of a book I have read.

Mutiny said...

I wish this guy could be exposed and the people who allowed it to happen are forced to pay for therapy and damages to these children.

The industry will recover if something like this gets blown up in the media. Look at Penn State.

Maybe I just don't get it when these parents sit back and do nothing because they don't want to lose their meal ticket, but I do know that as a survivor of a sexual assault it changes the way you see yourself and the world around you.

Also, if anyone had ever tried anything like that with my girls, I would have brought down a ring of hellfire, call the cops, the media, a lawyer...whatever...and I would not shut up until the dude is put away.

I would probably be arrested for stalking the dude because I would be outside of dude's with a sign calling him out on his behavior. I could give a fck what the monetary cost is...because money cannot give you back your childhood. And every child deserves that.

I have a problem understanding the parents who look the other way because of the $$$$. Then again if my husband and I had cared about money we wouldn't have worked in public schools or a police department. So, I probably will never be able to understand it.

This man was a vile piece of human refuse. I hope he burns in hell as we type.

Does anybody remember the scene in Bruno where he asks the mother of the toddler if she'd be willing to submit the toddler to liposuction and she says yes? It's not even funny...

Wonder who was tutoring during the Diffrent Strokes, Facts of Life years.

My head is exploding again! enty and @himmmm please out this guy...please! If he's dead it doesn't matter, these girls and women will get help AND hopefully stop future child stars from being abused, because you know it's still happening with another "tutor" somewhere.

The makes so much sense now - all those poor child actresses who went crazy on the drugs and ruined their "careers" like Shannen Doherty, Brittney Spears, that girl from Full House, that girl from Charles in Charge (I just suspect these peeps). I would start the drugs too if I was being raped by my "tutor" and no one cared, not my parents, not my fellow actors, not the studio...

Maybe the victims couldn't come forward due to payoff gag order? Well that payoff couldn't have been big enough. I'd want a weekly check forever!

It's time to be an Avenger and out this perv!

My guess for Lainey blind - JLo

I know this is an old post now, but I just want to give kudos to Himmmm for speaking out here. Others may not think the same, but I believe that we come into this life with certain things we want to accomplish and I think you must be an old and wise soul to have chosen the very rough road you have. Not many would have that kind of strength. Blessings to you and yours.

I also want to thank Himmmm for having the courage to post. I am so glad you were able to overcome your issues and get out of the hell you were in. I am so happy to hear that you have a great support system now - you are so blessed to have Herrrr in your life. God bless and take care. **hugs**

Xtra credit assignments:
Why does Mel Gibson scream about"The Jews" but is silent on the Room 23 scene?
Does Room 23 explain the career of no-talent hunks like Channing Tatum?
Did Britney fake insanity to get out of a bad management contract?
Are the Scientologists & Room 23 folks allies or enemies?
Does Room 23 prove the existence of & supply the entertainment to Bohemian Grove?

@vega

I hope you see this or.

I really loved the way you sated your comments, it was beautiful. Where you raised this way, or come by this way of thinking through some "religious-type" or other philisophical teachings? I ask, because I would really like more insight to this and would love to know where to find it. I really needed to see this comment. Thank you.

@Dangerous D....
I know this is like a few weeks late but I did a bit of research...And the other people listed on the cyberspace, one is Tony Lucca who is a former MMCer...So that makes it seem like #1 would be the 90s version of MMC...

I think they were molested on purpose to be more attractive and sexually open on the shows. Prudes or real virgins in a show would make it look different. I really believe is on purpose. Tutor of a Hollywood kind, what a coincidence it happens only in movie/TV sets ;)

Is it Bob Hope?

Ok, maybe this is not directly related to this Blind Item, however it could be along the same lines...
Does anyone know anything about a person in the industry named Jack Tice?
Jack has worked as a studio teacher/welfare worker and a fire advisor/officer on a few films, including:

Loaded Weapon 1 (studio teacher)
Back to the Future Part III (studio teacher)
Dead Poets Society (studio teacher)
License to Drive (studio teacher)
The Lost Boys (welfare worker)
Summer Camp Nightmare (studio teacher)
The Goonies (teacher - as Jack A. Tice)

Now that's a lot of time spent with Corey Feldman and a bit of Haim time, as well as a Corman film full of young boys that no one's ever seen or heard from again.

Interestingly, Jack A. Tice was also (somewhat famously) involved in the 1983 Twilight Zone Movie, where he may have even played a pivotal role in saving Landis/Spielberg's backsides... however he is not listed amongst the cast on IMDB?
Anyone know what other shows and films he might have been involved with (Chuck Norris film in the Philippines?)

I've been spending some time researching this and without going into great detail... I'm wondering if he might be a potential Haim/Feldman abusers?

is the "Tutor" Dan Schneider?
