Blind Item #1

This commercial shoot for a clothing brand was designed to be a reunion of a very popular television show from back in the day. Well, it is still on, just in a different way. Anyway, a few of the stars from the show filmed the commercials. Everything was great with everyone except the actress who has been in this space frequently. Everyone kept asking if she was on drugs because she was acting so crazy. The company said right there they are never going to work with her in the future.

Old Navy 90210
Have seen the commercials with Jason Priestly and the other lady (can't remember her name)

Jessi said...

Jenni Gartth, 90210 Old Navy!

crila16 said...

I'm thinking, Shannon Doherty.

Grey said...

Jenni Garth

EmEyeKay said...

Jenni is in the Old Navy commercials, so is the actor who played Brandon and the other actor who was kinda hot. I can't remember their names.

donner said...

Poor Jenni...I saw the commercial last night and she looked ok, if not a little twitchy...makes sense now...poor kid..

smashbash said...

Bam! You guys are good. I saw the old navy commercial last night and wondered what the deal was. "she's not new you guys" :)

Bogey said...

Umm how fine does JP look in this commercial?!? That man ages well...

Amber said...

Is there more than one? My mind blocks commercials, so the one with Priestly and Carteris is the only one (or only part) I've noticed.

jane3113 said...

Thought the same thing, Bogey. He is aging so well.

califblondy said...

Amber, I've seen two so far.

rejectedcarebear said...

Brandon and Dylan have aged very nicely and I love the 'new girl' one. I just saw the Jennie Garth one last night. Not as funny as new girl.

MrsTea said...

"Brenda" up to her same old huh?

Fijigrrl said...

maybe doherty as the actress they won't work with again?

Cara said...

I've only seen the "new girl" one too. I certianly wouldn't kick Jason Priestly out of bed for eating crackers, if you know what I mean (and I think you do).

VIPblonde said...

@jessi You got it! Shannen Doherty isn't in the spots, just Jenni Garth and Gabrielle Carteris. Which makes it Jenni

LadyLagerfeld said...

Jenny Garth in the Old Navy commerical with Luke Perry and Jason Priestly. I'm guessing if she was acting "crazy," it was due to hunger!

Renoblondee said...

I just saw the 1 with Jennie last night too.

g.strathmore said...

So is she on drugs or what? If so, is it a new thing or has she been a drug user for a while?

Bogey said...

I feel bad for Jenny (Jenni?) She is probably going through hell and back finding out about what a dbag her ex husband was while they were married.. Her only saving grace is hearing about the driving woes of Amanda Bynes....

Patty said...

Good for Old Navy.

Moonmaid said...

My take? Jason: adorable. Commercials: awful.

LadyLagerfeld said...

The real question is how Old Navy managed to avoid including Tori Spelling. She would never pass up the chance to be on television. I can only imagine Shannen was too busy with her numerous online degrees...

Jennifer H. said...

Is this even blind? Poor Jenni. I thought her face looked very different. I didn't recognize her at first.

LC said...

@ladylagerfeld. Hilarious!

Amber said...

Where are the pics of Jennie Garth looking like hell? I did a google image search and she looks great in what I saw.

lolaluvs2snack said...

Jennie was looking skinny as hell when I saw her. Someone close to her please give her a PB&J sandwich with a full fat glass of milk PLEASE...

Shallow Gal said...

I've only seen the one with Gabrielle and Brandon but this ad campaign immediately came to mind.

Jane said...

Definetly Jenni. She looked tweaked out the last 3 seconds or so. I rewinded several times like wtf is up with her

musesx9 said...

hm...not sure I see it, but here are the commercials...http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/08/902010-reunion-old-navy-commercials_n_1757383.html

lalaland923 said...

I have not seen the commercials but I would not be surprised if it was Jenni Garth. Shannon is known to be a B,but isn't Jenni known as an "American Sweetheart" of sorts? I would not be surprised if she was on drugs after seeing how thin she was (probably a combo of eating disorder and drugs) but come on Jenni!! Get your F'ing act together for your kids sake. yes, you were married to a douchey guy but at some point you have to accept help and try and move on.

Jen said...

LMAO LadyLagerfeld. Oh my god her commercials kill me.

Jennie looks so unhealthy. So sad. She's one of my faves and I hate to see her looking frail. She obviously hasn't eaten a thing since her separation. I wouldn't jump to conclusions and assume she's on the hard stuff. I have a friend who went through a difficult break up with a boyfriend of 20 years. She started taking diet pills, lost a ton of weight, but is a frazzled mess some days because of her diet. It happens to the best of us. Get well, Jennie.

BlahBlahBlah said...

Jason looks good here, he was looking so rough after his car accident, I haven't seen him in anything for a while but its great to see him looking so healthy.

@Jane if you watch the last shot she does seem twitchy

I feel for her, if she truly was that naive her whole world has been f*cked up. We can hope she has some sort of decent support system in her life but this is Hollywood...

jennifer hansen said...

US magazine is making a big deal that she's lost some weight recently it's ridiculous. when my mom was divorcing that dumbass ex-father of mine she lost a lot of weight it's called stress but US mag has idiots working there so they wouldn't know that

jennifer hansen said...

yeah... that'll put the weight back on

Unknown said...

Not sure this is even a blind item. It's definitely Jenny Garth.

Phillip Themholes said...

It sure sucks to be JG these days, innit? I hope she doesn't off herself. If I were her, I'd move to Taos and retire on the cheap. No paps there. No agents, either.

Patricia said...

What's the name of the Jennie Garth commercial? The other one is new girl but I can't find hers to watch?

annabella said...

haven't read the comments, so don't know if someone has done this already, but the url for the commercial is here:

Lizzie du said...

Thats funny cause its prob true, lol

Lizzie du said...

Normally i would say this is shannen, but ill go with jen poor thing she looks so thin and crazy. I hope she bounces back up . Its hard when u find out your perfect life is a lie .

GP said...

Why would you normally say that it's Shannen, if she wasnt' even in the commercial?!

urban chaos said...

So far there are three commercials, no Shannon present so my money is on JG.
They are why choose/newgirl/pantsed

lzahart said...

Just want to say that I LOVE these commercials for giving me a mini-Niner reunion. I have only seen the Brandon/Andrea one but am definitely going to watch the others w the URLs you guys have posted.

Agreed IDK how on Earth Donna didn't worm her way into this. Apparently Old Navy has pretty high standards btwn omitting her and bona-fide psycho Brenda, so good for them for also not wanting to work with Jennie if she did behave this way.

Jennie- take a deep breath, maybe a long vacation away from work and paps, and get it together girl! Stress takes weight off of me like you wouldn't believe too but you have to fight back! Drink Ensure if you have to (sometimes I do)! Your gorgeous children and dedicated fans of Kelly Taylor are behind you, you have mad support out there! I really don't think any of the Niner actors who didn't burn thru their money on drugs (see: Brenda) and were on the show for a while can probably live a comfortable life without ever working again thanks to residuals so I certainly hope it's not that she needed the $$. Plus Twilight alimony must pay well.

lzahart said...

Sorry for the double post but did anyone else think that the "New Girl" ad was also making fun of The Zooey a bit? The whole "she's not new!" thing I thought was a direct jab at The Zooey being marketed as this brand new thing when really she has been around for a while.

Me said...

i heard (on here i think) that there was an old navy ad w/ jennie and drandon & dylan. i had only seen the other one (brandon & andrea). i looked it up online and i immediately thought "why are the shots so obviously not done at the same time?" there are no scenes of the 3 of them together. i still liked it though. miss the old gang.....

Babylove said...

Sorry if this was already posted but I saw this yesterday: http://www.radaronline.com/photos/image/185858/2011/12/hot-photos-august-4-2012

Sherry said...

Jenni doesn't look all that thin to me. Too bad if this blind is about her. I would guess her world is crashing around her now that she's hearing all the shit about her ex and that's gotta mess you up without any drugs.

Sarah said...

Buahahahaha! I'm sure you're right.

cdd81 said...

I watched every season of BH 90210. Even at her thinnest, Jennie has never been this slim. In fact, I always loved that she had a lovely slender yet healthy body and never got super skinny like some of the other actresses of her generation. I hope she hasn't turned to drugs as she has 3 gorgeous daughters and PF is obviously an a-hole and a fool.

Does anyone else remember the blind about an actor in a big franchise who had always been faithful but within a couple weeks was screwing around on his actress wife? Everyone thought it was PF in Twilight. Wonder if that guess was off or he was just able to keep his cheating under wraps until after the divorce?

Also, as much as I like Jennie, I did watch her reality show and she's far from America's sweetheart. Shannen got the bad wrap on the show but several actresses on the show (Tiffani, Emma Caufield, Vanessa Marcil) have indicated Jennie was a bit of a "mean girl."

AmyL said...

First time poster. Aloha from Hawaii everyone. Love this site and all the comments. Years ago, my parents ran into Priestley. This was long after 90210, when no one gave a shit about him anymore. This was in Michigan, it wasn't a crowd scene and he wasn't being hassled. My parents are the sweetest, kindest people and were very respectful. They asked him if they could take a photo with him. He wouldn't do it - said he "couldn't." Fuck Jason Priestely - he can suck a dick. And, BTW, I thought he looked like hell in that commercial. That is all.
