Today's Blind Items - The Sex Show

This television show was not actually called The Sex Show, but it might as well have been. It seemed like the entire cast was having sex with each other at some point or the other. The show was a very big hit and spawned the careers of several actors and was also the place where some of the careers never get better. One of the actors who has gone on to bigger and better things is probably a nice solid B list actor. When he first arrived to the show he was a virgin. A 20 something year old virgin who quickly changed that with this much older foreign born actress. In fact, things were so hot and heavy between the actress and actor for a time there that she almost broke up with her boyfriend.


There was another actress on the show who has permanently kind of stalled her career. She thought she was the big thing but on the set everyone laughed at her and secretly loved the fact that her boyfriend at the time was having sex with just about all the actresses on the show. He would come to visit his girlfriend on the set and while she was shooting he would be in the trailer of some other actress and having sex. He would also use his girlfriend's trailer. He got caught by her all the time cheating but she never would leave him.

One of the lesser known actresses on the show was married at the time she was on the show. It is rumored that she got divorced because of things that happened on the show and that a child may or may not belong to the person she was married to at the time.

Another actress on the show who was supposed to hit the big time but has never quite got there was mocked by everyone on the show because she would always tell her co-stars she was waiting to get married to have sex with her boyfriend. She was not a virgin as one of the producers can attest to, but she tried to keep that fling a secret. Her boyfriend at the time was keeping a whole lot of things secret.

Dawson's creek?

FS said...

Hmmm, this blind is about a hit television show with male and female actors having sex. That narrows it down.



(if anyone gets this blind, my hat is off to you).

Vicki Cupper said...

Baywatch?

Del Riser said...

Pretty much any show with males and females.
The mind boggles with the possibilities.

Karen Labenz said...

That 70s Show?

JoElla said...

Party of five?

Ellen said...

I kept picturing saved by the bell when I read this, but I really have no idea.

MP said...

It's not That 70's Show?

MontanaMarriott said...

Enty we need more, like network, sitcom or drama, anything to help us solve this otherwise this could be any show in Hollywood.

Dana @ What the Frock? said...

I thought That 70's Show but I can't think of who the much older, foreign born actress would be. This is way too vague.

Sadie said...

First thing that came to my mind was Friends - but then the foreign born actress blew my guess all to hell.

AthleteKitty said...

70's show with Aston kutcher being the solid b list actor.

DianaofThemyscira said...

I think vagueness is the point.

caydian said...

90210

mialou said...

BH 90210 original

Bally said...

I thought it was That '70s Show, too, because Mila Kunis was born in the Ukraine, but I reread it and noticed the foreign-born actress is much older.

luvgossip said...

How about ER?

WW said...

It's totally That 70s Show. Two very good fits:

Solid B list actor who was dating a much older woman: Ashton. (I don't know who the actress was but that seems like an obvious clue). It didn't say the older actress was on the show.

Lesser known actress who was married when the show was on, is divorced now and has a child: Laura Prepon (of whatever her last name is)

Sparkwee said...

I think the O.C fits.

B list 20 something virgin - Ben Mackenzie.
Foreign born actress - Kelly Rowan
(I remember hearing rumours that they were secretly dating during production)

Actress with permanently stalled career - Mischa Barton.
Boyfriend - Cisco Adler? Or Brandon Davis?

Other actress who was supposed to be a big hit - Rachel Bilson
Boyfriend with secrets - Heydon Christianson

Lesser known actress divorced with child - Melinda Clarke

Cathy said...

By my count, there are four actresses and one actor mentioned here:
Actor: 20-something virgin when he started, now a solid B-lister
Actress 1: Older foreign-born actress
Actress 2: Has permanently stalled career
Actress 3: Lesser known, was married at the time of the show, has a child, now divored
Actress 4: Supposed to hit the big time but didn't, pretended she was a virgin

Vicki Cupper said...

O.C. sounds better than That 70's Shit. I mean Show.

I love that it's becoming the Ben Affleck of ensemble show blinds.

EmEyeKay said...

I'm starting to think that these set trailers must all smell really funky.

Ever notice that That 70's Show is in the first ten guesses to practically every blind about a TV show? Followed closely by 90210 and Melrose Place.

The Mayor said...

I don't know why, but I immediately thought of The OC. Adam Brody and Kelly Rowan (Canadian born)? Mischa Barton and Cisco Adler for the trailer-fucker-inner? Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen for the "virgin"? Ugh, I shouldn't know so much about The OC.

Cathy said...

I really like the O.C. guess, but the Rachel Bilson part doesn't seem to fit, unless the boyfriend was Adam Brody, since they dated for the majority of the series. And I would think that Enty would have mentioned that the boyfriend was also on the show...

crila16 said...

Beverly Hills 90210 (1990 cast)?

Kristina said...

Twin Peaks

MacGog said...

Dawson's Creek?

Joshua Jackson was 20 when they started filming and I seem to remember something about his mother (casting agent) being unhappy with his choice of older woman.

Megan said...

Okay, no guesses yet but breaking this down. TV show i not on air. Large cast (though unspecified in size or turnover rate). Big hit leading to careers for some actors but... some never got better? Not sure what that means. Older actors on the show trying to revitalize their careers?

For the cast:

Big actor started in his 20's.
Older foreign born actress (30's? 40's? More?) who had a boyfriend.
Actress with boyfriend who has "stalled her career".
Lesser known actress, married, has at least one child, got divorced.
Actress where people had high hopes for some reason, had boyfriend.
Actress' boyfriend who had "secrets," possibly also someone famous who maybe came out of the closet later on?

Sooo... lots of actresses and only one actor to talk about. Lots of boyfriends and only one husband. Does this mean we're talking about a majority female cast made up of generally younger people?

Cathy said...

Also, Melinda Clarke can't be the divorced actress, since her only child was born in 2000 - much before The OC started.

Sparkwee said...

@Cathy That's true, but I think she started dating Heyden during the final season. So it might still fit?

MP said...

it doesn't say that foreign born actress was on the show..

Cathy said...

@Sparkwee - I don't remember anything about her claiming to be a virgin though in the three years she was dating Adam Brody before Hayden.

spacecowboy78 said...

What Cathy said. O.C. fits better than That 70's Show, which fits virtually nothing about this blind, but Rachel Bilson dated Adam Brody back then, before becoming the beard to Hayden Christensen.

eforest said...

Glee?

Sparkwee said...

@Cathy True again.

Linnea said...

Damn, the OC looked so good but you are right about Bilaon

Linnea said...

Bilson

caralw said...

I doubt Kutcher was a virgin when he started that 70s show. LOL.

mk said...

I feel like if it was Dawson's Creek there would have been a mention of an award nominated/ winning actress-- Michelle Williams. But maybe that would be too easy?

angel said...

The O.C. seems to fit best of the limited number of shows that were very big hits and spawned the careers of several actors. Perhaps Enty just confused the Rachel Bilson - Adam Brody - Hayden Christensen timeline a bit.

McSpanky said...

I was thinking Melrose Place while reading it. But maybe it just reads like a Melrose Place script.

trouble bubble said...

Wasn't Jennifer Love Hewlitt a "virgin" some time ago?

~Z~ said...

Uh, yes, I believe she was born one....

MadMarlin69 said...

I was so getting an ER vibe from this entry.

trouble bubble said...

LOL ^^^ I mean, I tried to remember which actresses were proud virgins, and only Katie Holmes and Jennifer came to my mind. Also I think I remember BI reveal about Jennifer not sleeping with her boyfriend, who was told she was a virgin, and f...ing around the set at the same time.

~Z~ said...

I thought that's what you meant! Glad you didn't take my attempt at humor the wrong way! ☻

Ingrid Superstar said...

Totally wrong but I'm going to guess friends with Courney Cox as the actress who thought she was "the big thing". She tried to do movies but the best role she could get was the forgettable love interest plot in Ace Ventura. The virgin was David Schwimmer but I'm talking out of my ass because for some reason Schwimmer was a hottie magnet in the 90's.

DueDiligence said...

Man I'm old. My first thought was The Partridge Family.

Vita19 said...

Charmed:
Foreign Born - Rose McGowan
20 something actor - Drew Fuller
Had child during shows run - Holly Marie Combs
Relationship broke up with rumors of affairs with Co-stars - Brian Krause & Julian McMahon

Sparkwee said...

@Vita19 Charmed crossed my mind as well, but I don't think it was considered "a very big hit" and it didn't spawn several careers. Most of the actors were already known at the time.

thecooler said...

Six Feet Under

trixibelle said...

It has to be Dawson's Creek. Katie Holmes made a huge deal about saying she was staying a virgin until marriage (lol) while dating Chris Klein.

Vita19 said...

@Sparkwee - I think the show being a big hit, does not necessary mean it was a big hit on our networks. The show could be a big hit worldwide.

Sunshine13 said...

I immediately though The OC as well, but I thought Adam Brody for the 20-something virgin.

Also, it says the actress, "would always tell her co-stars she was waiting to get married to have sex with her boyfriend." So she never claimed to be a virgin, according to this. And she certainly didn't hold a press conference about it! So that could definitely fit Rachel, especially with Adam as the boyfriend, who is keeping the secret of sleeping with Kelly.

That's my guess!

I'm not sure who the married actress would be though. At first I though Olivia Wilde (lesser known at the time of the show), but she doesn't have any kids, right? But it doesn't say the child was hers...maybe her husband got a co-star pregnant? Ok, i'm reaching now!

bg said...

nip tuck

Presto said...

I think it's "THE" Oc simply because he named this blind "THE" Sex Show instead of just Sex Show ;p

PamMo said...

Gossip Girl?

I thought there was a blind item about the actress having a child whose father might not have been her husband, and the consensus was Kelly Rutherford.

Just for fun, I'll match up Penn Badgeley (20 yo virgin, possibly solid B actor - Easy A) and Elizabeth Hurley (foreign born actress).

I guess that would make Blake Lively the oft-cuckolded actress.

I dunno.

crila16 said...

I like Sparkwee's guess, except I think Adam Brody is the B list.

B List Actor – Adam Brody

Actress 1: Older foreign-born actress – Kelly Rowan (Canadian)

Actress 2: Has permanently stalled career – Misha Barton

Actress 3: Lesser known, was married at the time of the show, has a child, now divorced – Melinda Clarke

Actress 4: Supposed to hit the big time but didn't, pretended she was a virgin – Rachel Bilson. Wasn't she also dating Adam Brody or something during the show?

Jennifer H. said...

This is so vague, I find I don't care.

Sparkwee said...

@crila16 The only reason I said Ben Mckenzie and not Adam Brody was that I remember that sometime during the run of The O.C there were paparazzi pictures of Kelly Rowan and Ben that surfaced. They were on a secret vacation or something... They were undercover on a beach. But of course I can't find those pictures anywhere right now. But I do remember seeing them at the time and it was weird. It was near the end of the show I think.. Like 2006 or 2007.

Syko said...

I can't even read this because there's a stupid ass ad for Comcast up there covering half the first paragraph and it won't close. Bah.

@ Syko

Me too (me neither)! You can't "X" out of the damn thing?? I refresh the page, yet it blocks the top paragraph every time. Lame-o!

HalleGoLightly said...

& in my case it's an LL Bean ad.

I can subscribe now and win a trip to LA, but I can't read the top of the clues...

I hate the ads!!!!!! Why, Enty, why??

surfer said...

If you install Adblock Plus (works with Firefox), you'll never see another ad. I intalled it ages ago, and I never see any ads - here or elsewhere. It really does work.

surfer said...

***whoops - I *installed* it.

astrogirl said...

Thanks surfer will give it a go. What about when I use my iPad, is there a safari fix too?

LOL!

Humble thanks lovely interweb yodas.

Unknown said...

I don't think The OC fits. There's no way Ben McKenzie was a virgin when the show started. And Adam Brody doesn't fit either - he's not even close to a solid B. Mischa's boyfriends during the show were Brandon Davis and Cisco Adler. I somehow doubt people would be lining up to have sex with them. Melinda Clarke's child was born years before the show started. I'm not sure that she's divorced either. Rachel Bilson and Adam Brody lived together, so I'm not sure that she'd be claiming that she was a virgin. I mean, the descriptions of their acting lives make sense for The OC, but the details don't fit. Maybe Enty is heavily embellishing.

Mango said...

I don't think Ashton can be considered a solid anything, let alone a solid B actor.

E Gee Be said...

Angel, you are a real doll for that tip, thank you!

colin r said...

Dawsons Creek does fit though!

I think.

Reasons:

"very big hit and spawned the careers of several actors"
Michelle Williams, Katie Holmes, Joshua Jackson, James van der Beek, Busy Phillips, Michael Pitt

a nice solid B actor: Joshua Jackson, Fringe, Mighty Ducks

"When he first arrived to the show he was a virgin. A 20 something year old virgin who quickly changed that with this much older foreign born actress"

In season 1, Pacey has an affair with his much older teacher; for many episodes. ANd they had some steamy scenes together.

Also: "In 1989, Josh starred in the critically acclaimed movie, "Crooked Hearts" with Marg Helgenberger. It is in "Crooked Hearts" where he had his first screen kiss with Helgenberger, "It kind of ruined me for women my own age," Josh explains. All this at the tender age of 11.

Also, he could have been a virgin, because: "It was during this time (s1 of DC) that Josh sparked up a romance with his co-star, Katie Holmes. The two dated for eight months, and even after their relationship ended, both refer each other as their first love"

"actress on the show who has permanently kind of stalled her career"

Katie's career has been dead for years now. She also fits as the actress whose boyfriend cheated on her (Chris Klein)

lesser known divorced actress with a baby- thought Busy Phillips, but shes not divorced...could bethe actress who played Joeys sister, Bessie?

Monica Keener (Abby) as the actress who slept with a the producer, and was meant to make it big, but didn't:

from imdb: Requested that her character Abby Morgan be written out of "Dawson's Creek" (1998) as her boyfriend at the time was living in New York and she didn't like being in Wilmington, North Carolina, where the show filmed.

Okay, so what do you guys think? I know this ones vague, but any good reason it isn't DC?

Secret Things said...

Collin R has won the Big over-stuffed teddy today- Congrats- as 2 "other" shows with over 7 year "Runs..." came a very,very close second.
Just to make it.... cute-
From the same set, one of the "up and coming stars" met this dashing at the time A+ list action star who had a wife that enjoyed being tied and blindfolded then left for hours as this macho man met this oh so cute thing and took her home to her first over 40 "Menage a.." She was so horrified by the incident she tried to avoid the couple every and anywhere- All the while this Smug A+ would then make a very public "Oh my...How ARE you..." and corner her, arms around her fatherly, and to her sad discomfort he would shoutto all that she was the Apple of his eye

mungo said...

Rachel Bilson lost her virginity at 14. According to... her!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkHSfGhZuEw

lostathome said...

Sounds like ER to me almost. Noah Wyle could have been the virgin, but other than that I have no idea on the others

Zelda Zonk Garde said...

Kelly Rutherford from GG sticks out to me with the divorced woman with a child, that was a pretty nasty divorce, and a few of the stars have branched out to music and movies. Talor Momsen could have been the "virgin". I would have laughed if she told me that too

uptown4cozzmo said...

The Patridge family ha ha ha hahee hee hee hee lol that was funny!!
