Blind Item #1

Talk about not having a say in the naming of your child. This actress who is C list based on talent and A list based on name recognition has been told by her husband what they are naming the baby and he has already trademarked the baby's name even though she is not even halfway through her pregnancy. Apparently the husband has already even drawn up business plans and wants the actress to focus more on marketing products he thinks will be a fit between her and the baby. Does she have a say in this? Not really.

Megan Fox?

megan fox and bag

FSP said...

Hope that baby has normal thumbs.

Sparkwee said...

Is BAG smart enough to draw up a business plan?

What about Drew Barrymore and her new husband? He's more of a business man.

NapAssasin said...

Yes, because breeding is now a synonym for branding. I have children because I want to sell something. Fucking horrible. I hope people who think like this burn in hell. Assholes. And by the way BAG, you're first kids's name did so well as a BRAND- you and he are so well recognized....

MAC said...

Enty said Drew is A list.

AuntJess said...

All aboard the BAG train. Baby Mama = business for him. Just go ask Vanessa Marcil.

auntliddy said...

Totally werid way of looking at things.

Redheat said...

Megan Fox first name to come to mind.

Pookie said...

ita w/ Sparkwee. i highly doubt BAG is anywhere near being remotely astute enough to do this.

drew b., however...it could happen. her latest H/baby daddy's daddy is the former ceo at chanel. if anyone understands the importance of a brand, how to protect it and the marketing/ad/pr involved in actual branding, it's these people.

PunkinElf said...

Let's name the baby:
Baggette - U think he knows how to spell?
Maggot - School nickname
BagMeg - Lack of imagination.

MISCH said...

So they didn't want a baby they wanted a paycheck...

SueRH said...

I don't know, I don't really see Drew putting up with that.

Sparkwee said...

@Pookie that's exactly what I was thinking!

@Mac I know Enty says Drew is A list, and the blind states that the actress is A list (with name recognition) and C list based on talent. I think Drew fits.

I don't think Megan has A list name recognition, does she really?

AndrewBW said...

DoucheBAG.

ATLBrvMom said...

I'm going Megan and BAG. The "business plan" could simply be some rudimentary and/or stupid ideas he's written down. Drew seems less likely to be on board with this - but based on the info in blind it could really be either of them. Ugh.

hunter said...

Drew would never put up with that shit. Plus she doesn't need the money or the fame - she hasn't even announced her pregnancy!

I'm inboard with the Fox & BAG guess. They DO need the money and I can see Megan being much easier to control on this way. Drew would be all "bitch PLEASE!"

caralw said...

Drew is a highly successful producer as well as actress, with a sense of her own business acumen. I highly doubt it is her.

hunter said...

Drew wouldnt put up with that shit. Megan would.

Drew doesn't need the fame or the money, MegN and Brian do. Nuff said.

Lauren said...

Jumping on the Megan Fox and BAG train.

hunter said...

Oh damn, my comment posted twice, oh well.

Pookie said...

^it is precisely b/c it'd be so shocking--given the independent woman view we've had about her since she got clean--that it could very well be Drew. no one would ever expect it.

further, no way megan fox has a-list name recognition.

annabella said...

yes, this isn't drew. she is not c-list talent and as people have been saying, she is a very successful business woman. she's got multi millions. and, I agree, if she hasn't announced the pregnancy yet, then she wouldn't be on board w/this plan.

themagicspork said...

I like the BAG/Megan Fox guess...Drew Barrymore is not C list talent and she is definately more than halfway during her pregnancy. The sonogram photos surfaced in February and she has had a bump for awhile now...

HI said...

While I don't have children yet, this is exactly the opposite of how I see the naming of my future child going down. I'M GOING THROUGH 9 MONTHS OF PREGNANCY AND GOD KNOWS HOW MANY HOURS OF LABOR= I've earned all say on the name. Hey, feel free to throw out a suggestion, but just don't get your hopes up.

Sparkwee said...

It's not about needing the money or fame. Do you think Jay-Z and Beyonce needed the money for branding their baby and copywriting Blue Ivy?

I just think Drew and her husband are more likely because they both have more of a business sense than Megan and BAG.

xoApril said...

Must be Megan Fox - C list talent, A list name recognition. Drew has more talent no doubt.

Rose said...

I don't know about BAG, his first son doesn't have a name that can be capitalized on. I don't think MF is an A list name. Probably B list. Have they confirmed she is even pregnant?

Sherry said...

I think it's Drew also..

MAC said...

@ sparkwee I could see Drew being B list talent...

However, this is what Enty said about her years ago when discussing A list women.

Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore have a franchise, but it is not on their own. Drew however is so A list it isn't even funny and can't believe she is only the 8th highest paid actress. She needs a new agent

RJ said...

Definitely not Drew. She's a successful producer aside from her acting career. Also, I don't see her as the doormat type who would let a guy steamroll her like that.

I don't really see this for Megan Fox either just because her popularity isn't based on being maternal. Her entire appeal is based on being hot and sexy in that trailer trash way. I suspect most of her fan base will be turned off by her motherhood. What is going to promote anyway? Fake tattoos for infants? There are already diapers out there that look like denim and cover up more ass check than her shorts usually do. Seriously, what in the world is a good fit between Megan Fox and baby stuff that would be marketable? Of course, the world is full of tasteless teen moms who probably think Megan is way cool, so maybe BAG is on to something if this is them.

detown359 said...

Reese Witherspoon.

mannyv said...

Maybe they'll name the baby Bergamot. There aren't enough of those around.

Sparkwee said...

@Mac yes, I remember that post. But that was based on info from 2007. Star rankings go up and down. They don't stay the same year to year. (Unless you're Julia Roberts haha..)

And that list doesn't say anything about talent. I don't think it's so out there to say Enty thinks Drew is C list based on talent.

This blind says that the actress is A list based on name recognition.. Which Drew would be and I think that's what that post is about - Name recognition . Because it's all based on box office, and what movies they've been in and how much of a draw they are, etc. Not necessarily talent.

I'd really be interested in seeing an updated list from Enty.

princessd said...

Plus drew is more than half way through her pregnancy isnt she... i think shes like 7months.... on the bag/meg train.....

Sparkwee said...

Drew and Megan pregnancy rumours started in early March, so they're both probably due around the same time.

EmEyeKay said...

Drew doesn't fit. Megan fox has A list name recognition... but is BAG smart enough to do this?

Steppy said...

I don't think it's Drew. She's not C list talent. I think she's won a GG, Emmy nominated and several other noms.

Doc Girl said...

Katie Holmes

Blankverse said...

Reading all the comments I see this as Drew more than Megan. If new hubby is business guy he may see $$ in using the Barrymore name for god knows what he might want to sell. Agree with others that BAG just doesn't appear to have the brains for such an enterprise.

Sparkwee said...

@Doc Girl haha! I love it.

Kassandra said...

I like the Reese guess.

AKM said...

Is Reese's talent really considered C-list? And no way is Drew C-list for talent, either. Finally, as others have mentioned, I'm not sure that BAG is smart enough to do this.

I think it's gotta be someone else entirely whom we just haven't figured out yet...

Sparkwee said...

I honestly think Drew is a terrible actress, but she's bubbly, adorable and just all together charming.

I love her. I still see her movies, but she's not the best actress.

I think the C-list ranking for talent is accurate.

supapimp said...

Really sad if this is megan fox.

sifichick said...

No way is this Drew. Not after what she went through as a child.

I'm kind of liking the Reese guess. If not it's probably Megan & BAG. Who knows BAG might be smarter than we all think. Yeah I'm laughing at that one too but it could be true.

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

I really don't see this as being Drew--she's definitely more than C-list talentwise, and she's old enough and smart enough that I don't see her even going along with such a plan, much less allowing herself to be steamrollered into it. BAG & Megan are somewhat more likely, but I'm not utterly convinced it's them. As for Reese, I get the impression that she can be enough of a bitch that she'd be the one telling him how it was going to be.

Is it possible Katie's pregnant again? I can see TC being that cold-blooded, easily...

McSpanky said...

I agree with Sparkwee on Drew's talent. She's no Meryl Streep. Or Kate Winslet. Or Cate Blanchett. Or Naomi Watts. Not even Julia Roberts. Not even Katie Holmes. Not even Michelle Williams.

There are so many actresses with much less name recognition than Drew who have so much more talent.

As far as the smart businesswoman argument, pregnancy hormones do crap to the brain. I can see her totally going with Baby Daddy on this, especially if he was a Chanel marketing executive.

We'd like it to be Megan Fox. But it isn't.

Baby Barrymore luxury baby goods. Can't you see it?

Tru Leigh said...

Who's preggers right now?
Megan Fox
Drew Barrymore
Reese Witherspoon
Kate Middleton
Snooki

Basil said...

I wouldn't have thought it was Drew until I saw her wedding pictures on the cover of a magazine. How many times has Drew been married and she has never done something like that if I remember correctly. Now she needs money? Other than the C-list talent thing, Drew sadly does fit.

RenoBlondee said...

I agree no way it's Drew. Why would she put up with that after all she's been through?
I like the Megan Fox guess.

Cake said...

If we have learned one thing from these blinds, it is that smart & talented women can choose controlling mates. She had a horrible upbringing, she may be trying to make it work with her baby daddy. Plus she is probably a C-list talent as an actress. She is an A, if you count everything else like producing etc.

Elizabeth said...

Tori Spelling

Tru Leigh said...

Add:
Gisele Bundchen
Anna Paquin
Uma Thurman
One of the Kardashian's
Bettany Frankel (rumored)
Sarah Michelle Gellar
Sienna Miller
Anna Faris
Carson Daly's wife
Alyson Hannigan
Giuliana Rancic
Elsa Pataky / Chris Helsmworth

(I really need to get to work now.)

angel said...

I actually like the Reese guess too. Her husband is a talent agent, so this type of plan is right up his business alley.

RenoBlondee said...

Reese won an Oscar. I don't think that's considered C list talent.

superello said...

Tori Spelling

lolaluvs2snack said...

I'm guessing Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari just to be different.

Rickatoo said...

Gisele is not an actress

AKM said...

"Reese won an Oscar. I don't think that's considered C list talent."

Totally agree, RenoBlondee.

Sunny said...

Great guess, @superello!!

car54 said...

Tori already makes money off marketing her kids and what they like and do and wear--she has Little Mavens--the kids clothing line and she has a new arts and crafts line she's doing and a new TLC craft show--that i'm sure she'll work the family in to and I don't think Dean is smart enough to think up branding---that's her area. But the C-list fits for sure.

MadLyb said...

This is crazy! What have we become?

tara17 said...

No way any of the following can remotely be considered a C in talent:

Drew Barrymore
Anna Paquin
Sarah Michelle Gellar
Anna Faris
Alyson Hannigan
Reese Witherspoon

Some are expertly skilled at their craft and even their worst acting events would score at least a B. Imo of course.

Me said...

only mom signs the irth certificate (in CA), so good luck to dad.

angel said...

Megan Fox and BAG showed up in the daily photos. I'm sold.

Sis said...

Tori is a great guess, but does she have A list name recognition?

And would the public care about any business plans if it was to sell products etc? So, I think it has to be somebody big.

love/hate said...

To those that think BAG ain't no planner, this was leaked from one of his business meetings.

Ingrid Superstar said...

The unwashed, brain dead masses love Megan Fox. They think she's a stunning natural beauty.

nightowl said...

What about Vanessa "Lemonjello" Lachey?

Jennifer H. said...

Oh, I don't know, several people here don't like her at all.

;-)

Angela said...

My first thought was Uma Thurman, but she's more talented than C-list.

I'm going with Megan Fox.

Mooshki said...

Come on. Drew or Reese as C list talent? Seriously? They're not brilliant actors, but they're a hell of a lot better than that.

The word you guys are looking for is "cunning," not "smart." Have you met the upper management of most companies? Not really the brain trust. But they're weasels who are willing to sink low to make a buck. BAG is definitely capable of this. Heck, look at Slade from the Real Housewives franchise. He's a moron, but he knows how to work what he's got.

Maria said...

I just don't see Drew doing this to her kid. Her mom would take her as a kid to Studio 54 to get in. Given their damaged relationship, I doubt Drew would do anything remotely similar to her own child.

My guess is Megan Fox.

kelgela said...

It would be funny if it was Miley/Liam if Miley was pregnant.

She's a C-list actress with A-list recognition in my book.
Although I do not see Liam being able to do this.
And isn't it that Enty fudges up a bit of the blind as to not get sued or something? They're about to be married.

astrogirl said...

I am in agreeance with Mcspanky I can picture the Chanel windows lit up with baby stuff. And Drew smiling down on everyone from above. She is Hollywood royalty so the branding with Chanel is perfect.

B. Profane said...

"only mom signs the birth certificate (in CA), so good luck to dad."

In CA if the couple is married the husband is immediately presumed to be the legal father of any issue, his name goes on the birth certificate, has full legal custody, etc. I don't know how disputes over birth names are handled--although I'm sure it's an issue quite often--but the dad has as much say as as the mom.

Cosette said...

megan fox. that's not even a blind.

lutefisk said...

Megan Fox. She is the only one that really doesn't have much of a career at this point and could use the money.

L said...

what detown359 said...

Reese Witherspoon.

Dead Angel said...

What does BAG do? Who isn't getting plum high paying movie parts? What couple would be motivated to do this for money to keep their lifestyle in tact? Bagen.
