Today's Blind Items - The 90's Star

There I was last week. I was at one of my favorite hamburger places not named In-n-Out or Five Guys. This one actually has waiters to bring me my burgers. They also have hostesses. At first I thought she looked familiar. But honestly, I get that feeling every second here sometimes. You are always scanning the crowd and seeing if someone looks familiar. Someone you can write about or mention or take their photo. Despite me looking at hundreds of photos everyday I really suck at the game. I had a ten minute conversation with Amanda Seyfried two weeks ago at the grocery store about why avocados have to be mushy before they make proper guacamole and I had no idea who she was until we were about to walk away from each other. At that point, I didn't even bother to try and take a photo or let on that I recognized her or ask her why she is dating that creepy guy from Dexter. The only reason I did recognize her was someone came up to her who wanted an autograph. Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah. So, I am looking at this hostess without appearing to look too much and then finally I think I know who she is, but how does one ask that question? It can go badly. But, I did. I finally asked her and I was right and then comes the next question about how did someone who was on the cover of magazines and on a hit network television show and one of the most famous men in the world as her boyfriend go from all of that to working as a hostess at a burger joint. A good one though, don't get me wrong. She answered with the air of someone who has answered it all before although with her I think she had told her story in meetings rather than to the public. She said it all started with thinking that everything would last forever and that even when the show ended she thought she would get another in a second. It was why she had not bothered to save any of the almost $2M she earned from the show. She had bought a house but ended up refinancing it and losing it during the recession because she could not afford the payments when the interest rate went from the teaser rate. She had done a lot of coke when she had a hit show, but could not afford it when the show ended so she turned to cheaper drugs which took a long time to get off. What was once a drop dead gorgeous face has the hints of years of meth abuse. She still has that beauty under there because she got off it quick enough. For awhile her boyfriend stayed with her, but he got tired of the drugs and partying so she found other guys that did enjoy it and they would take care of her. They liked having sex with someone they watched on television and she kept telling herself it would be for just a little while until she got the next show. Well, her agent and manager dropped her. Her family would not speak to her anymore because she had borrowed and borrowed from them without ever paying anything back. Plus she stole from them too. Not a lot she says, but enough. Sober for a year now, this job is the first job she has had. Prior to that, while she was in recovery she found a guy who was good to her and paid for everything so she could get help and not have to worry about anything. As soon as she got her life straight, he fell off the wagon and is in jail now. So, she got a job. She says she likes it. She has this frantic activity about her which you can still see from the screen. She still has that smile when she wants to give you one. She says she is taking acting classes, but is not in any kind of hurry to get back in the industry. She says that it is one big trigger for her, but that she actually loves acting and just wanted to be in class and read lines and be someone else for a few hours a few nights each week. She says that no one recognizes her in class usually and that very few strangers do either. She knew I had recognized her by the look I gave her. That double take. She says that sometimes happens and that she tries to avoid the situation, but she had no place to go because she is at work. She says that on the street if stopped, she will try and make it as quick as possible and not answer anything. She says that she has paid everyone back now and that she can actually use her residual checks on her now and that she is happy with her quiet life and all the parties and covers and the world at her feet seems so long ago, when in fact it was really only about a decade or so ago that it all ended.

Good to see she got her life back. If you're reading this, honey, do what you love.

Alicia said...

And she said all this as she was seating you ...

Kelli said...

He got her whole life story in detail out of one conversation? Including her salary & sexual details? This one sounds fabricated.

DJane said...

Jennifer Aniston ftw

Linnea said...

Come on guys, you can solve this... I hope! Cause I'm out

DJane said...

Someone from Baywatch?

I like that Yasmeen Bleeth guess

Catherine said...

joanie from happy days orrrrrr yasmeen bleeth.

Princess said...

I think Gutted got it. Yasmeen was arrested for crack possession years ago.

rejectedcarebear said...

I dunno, I've had some lengthy convos with waiters/waitresses before so I can kind of see this happening. But if she is reading this, good for you girl!!

Vicki Cupper said...

According to the interwebs, Yasmine Bleeth was a housewife in Michigan in 2010.

The older sister from Full House comes to mind, for whatever reason. But it's probably because we heard all that stuff about the middle sister doing a bunch of meth.

Betty White

*karen* said...

@eris hilton, Candice Cameron Bure is married with three kids and still acts.

mamabot said...

Yasmeen Bleeth was on a soap before Baywatch, so it can't be her.

Wasn't there news recently about the sister on That 70s Show having drug issues? Maybe her issues are too fresh for her to be at the "life is turned around and amends have been made stage" of recovery.

yodelay said...

Yasmine bleeth. Had a super bad coke addiction & I could see the tragedy in that face getting methy.

Tigercat said...

Just to be different - Lisa Nicole Carson?

Princess said...

After reading IMDB, it says Yasmine has been married for years, but no roles since 2003. These are tricky on IMDB because you don't know if they just haven't been updated and she's gotten divorced, or it's current, with no recent acting activity.
It also says she made $12,000 per episode of Baywatch, so doubt that was her $2 million.
Back to guessing...

Comma Chaser said...

I'm with @Eris Hilton, I think she may be thinking of Jodi Sweeten (sp?), which was my first thought while reading this.

I have lots of long convos with waitpersons all the time. Esp when I'm on the road. This is not entirely implausible. It's possible that the actress told the narrator these details over several lunches.

tara17 said...

Yasmine Bleeth seems a good guess, she dated Matthew Perry for a while. Sounds like she has her priorities in the right place.

BreeB714 said...

Jodie Sweeney. Full House

Jennifer H. said...

Yasmine was my first thought, but she wasn't on a bunch of covers; wasn't what this blind builds this woman up to have been. Also, as mentioned, she was married and in Michigan in 2010.

Hmmmmm

Princess said...

My new guess is Becky from Roseanne. Don't remember her real name, but saw a picture of her a year or so ago - she was being paid to read fortune telling cards at a party.

Seachica said...

I don't really want this one figured out, because I'd be afraid it would jeopardize her job. We always say that these stars that are in trouble should quit doing drugs, stop the sex for money, and get a real job. Well this person actually has. Kudos to her, and I don't want any blind item to put her recovery at risk.

OMAMA is BROKO said...

that chick from the 70's show....the sister.

hunter said...

Jodie Sweeney was never that beautiful. Yasmine was a knockout and had some bad drug problems. I'd guess her except for the 2010 Missouri thing someone else mentioned.

I hope you were at Umami!

dia papaya said...

I think this could be true. I can talk to anyone, anywhere, about anything. It's a gift I guess.

I have no idea who this could be, but good for her for getting her life together! Thumbs up lady!!!

kgirl said...

Bleeth is married.

*karen* said...

how did someone who was on the cover of magazines and on a hit network television show and one of the most famous men in the world as her boyfriend go from all of that

Who's the boyfriend?

Agent**It said...

I'm exhausted from reading this.

"a decade or so ago" - In Enty time, is that a 10- 15 year range?

dia papaya said...

Umami is delicious!!!

Jennifer H. said...

Was Yasmine on a hit show on a network? I can't remember if Baywatch was syndicated or not. She was on "One Life to Live" on ABC, but I don't think that could be called a hit and I doubt she got 2 million from that.

Seriously though, residuals from a hit show should be more than one would make pushing burgers.

Who would the world famous boyfriend be?

Basil said...

Whomever it is, I am glad they got their shite together, and also isn't to proud to work a service job. Good for her.

Danielle said...

here's a list of the boyfriends
Matt Perry, Luke Perry, Dave Charvet are all in there. Dunno if they're "most famous in the world" tho.
http://www.whosdatedwho.com/tpx_2457/yasmine-bleeth/

Tru Leigh said...

Yeah, who's the famous boo?

rhinovodka said...

This hurt my eyes to read. Please try to use paragraphs when posting the longer blinds(I am not trying to be the grammar police really). That said, this is rather vague, although the smile and famous boyfriend are clues.

The Fame Whore said...

I'll talk to anyone about anything. I'm curious about other people and their lives (maybe that's why I'm a writer). My mother used to say, "You'd talk to a rock if you thought it would answer you back."

I could see this conversation happening. I'll go with the Yasmin guess. I worked on Lambada back when I was acting with one of her boyfriends Ricky Paull Goldin. I don't know about now, but he was a really nice guy back then (1990).

Good for whoever it is that's put their life back on track!

Mhdz said...

Not convinced of this being Yasmeen. Something seems off. I don't have a guess though.

FS said...

Hamburger Hamlet. There's more than one in LA, so that could be it. The Counter is another one, but too many industry types go there so not a good place for a former actress to work 'incognito'.

So, what 90's shows are still on cable somewhere that she would get residual payments from? Drop dead gorgeous with a world famous boyfriend... If I had time, I would search Emmy award red carpet photos from the 90's, bet it would be obvious.

Also, I bet less than half of that info came from the conversation. Once Enty knew her name he could look up her info and fill in the clues for us.

spacecowboy78 said...

Some fits Yasmine, some doesn't. Baywatch was not a network, it was in syndication, and she was not a star from her turn on One Life to Live. None of her listed BF's also scream "famous men in the world."

Unknown said...

Yasmine was on Nash Bridges for a while, too. Weren't her worst drug years with Richard Grieco? Seem to remember a LOT of stories about sexual hijinks with that couple. although, I wouldn't call him super-famous.

MAC said...

Who did George Clooney date during his ER days?

Jennifer H. said...

Yeah, it doesn't really fit Yasmine. I don't think anyone's guessed it yet.

Jamie 2 said...

@Seachica: Well said, about the recovery thing. Whoever she is, she sounds like she needs and wants privacy.

However, I question most of the details in this entry.

Enty specifies she is a hostess, not a waitress. You might get to have lengthy conversation with a waitress if you dine somewhere frequently, but hostesses seat you and leave. A hostess who sat at the table and chatted to a guest for what would be a few hours would be out of a job.

And I somehow doubt that anyone who writes celeb gossip would not recognize Amanda Seyfried. She has a very unique face. There was a pic of her in the daily mail recently coming through an airport with no make up and her hair in pigtails, and she was instantly recognizable from the thumbnail pic.

Plus, would Amanda really spend ten minutes discussing avocados with a stranger?

LadyLagerfeld said...

I don't think it's Yasmine. I feel like she would be recognized often unlike the woman described.

coolranchdoritos said...

i'm trying to think of 90s actresses who don't work now and have great smiles. the fact that her smile was a part of it made me feel like that might be important.

off the bat i was thinking "show me that smile again" but don't think this is tracy gold. i looked up the actresses who played kate and julie too and they don't fit.

so basically i'm stumped but trying to think of nice smiles...

Beth said...

FFS, Enty, PARAGRAPH BREAKS!!!

Silly Girl said...

Really don't think it's Yasmine, not enough of the clues fit, not even if you twist them around a bit. BIG clue is the world famous boyfriend. Doesn't say he's an actor though, so it could be anyone. Sports, royalty, business tycoon, etc. Anyone. Dang, I want to know who this is though!

g.strathmore said...

It's tough to go through a major life failure and then have people ask you about it perpetually. I know from personal experience. Good job girl. Keep holding down the fort!

Allison said...

I'm mostly curious about which burger place you're talking about.

Thomas said...

to everyone guessing yasmin bleeth or jody sweetin types for this blind, i would imagine this was a somewhat minor character on a long running show. yasmin and jody would be too recognizable. i'm thinking someone along the line of kimmy gibbler. not literally, of course, but someone like that. or maybe a side-character on one of those weird/dumb also-ran tv sitcoms from the 90s, like the one with the little girl who was a robot, or something like that. 2 million bucks for a minor character on a long(ish?) running show sounds about right, to me. anyway, if this blind is true, i'm thinking it's not someone many of us would instantly recognize. and all of that having been said, this blind made me smile. i hope it's real. i'm glad for this woman, whoever she is, and i hope that she continues making the right choices and living a "real" life, mundane though it might be for her :)

commandeered said...

Now I'm really curious.
here are some popular shows on Network TV around the late 90s and are probably still syndicated.

3rd rock from the sun
home improvement
ally McBeal
Seinfeld
Frasier
Friends
Mad about you
Everyone Loves Raymond
ER
The Practice
The x-files
Chicago Hope
Law & Order
NYDP Blue

Beth said...

What about Lisa Nicole Carson (from Ally McBeal), though she apparently appeared on an ep of Harry's Law?

Good for whomever this is.

sbalb said...

I have no good guesses, but Yasmine (however you spell it) doesn't quite fit- her show wasn't network and she claims to have quit Hollywood altogether.
And while I believe that someone in this situation might spill her financial deets to a random customer who recognized her, I really doubt she'd go into her coke addiction and romantic problems, just because then they might end up on some website exactly like this one, with no guarantee that it'll be a blind.

lazyday603 said...

Good for her and I don't want to guess. It's almost a kindness blind except she's finally doing herself a kindness. Lindsay Lohan needs to get this girl as a life mentor.

crila16 said...

Can't be Yasmin, though great guess. She was done with Baywatch in 1997 and worked on other shows after that. She worked until 2003.

Cryscee said...

Here is a list of 90's TV shows:

List of 90s Shows

Unknown said...

Weird - I was wondering if it could be Staci Keanan from Step by Step & My Two Dads, looked her up and found out she's passed away. Very sad. I always thought she had a beautiful smile.

So, then, what about Crystal Bernard? She has kept a super low profile and there was a really dishy book about 10 years ago about Crystal and her boyfriend at the time (Rob Camilletti) and some hookers - You'll Never Make Love In This Town Again.

Also, didn't she date Rush Limbaugh?

Shit You Can't Buy said...

@Alicia; I was thinking the same thing. Someone you don't know starts talking to you, and you tell your complete lifestory, incl addictions and sexual encounters? SOrry, not buying that.

erika said...

not a clue. but good story!

Cryscee said...

Wow.. didn't know that Staci passed. That's a shocker. Very very sad.

Beth said...

Staci Keanan is not dead.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0443824/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Staci_Keanan

msgirl said...

I get into conversations all the time, because people can tell I just really enjoy listening. Also, I can never recognize stars, I've only realized who people are after wards, like the time Meryl Streep helped me up the entry stairs with groceries and bike to my loft in Soho. So that's all believable to me. People look very different without make up in person than the screen.

I was thinking Heather Locklear while reading this, even tho I know it's not.Someone like her?

SueRH said...

Hey, Desmond Harrington is a HOTTIE!!

Cecilia00 said...

Staci is not deadz. At least a google search I just did turned up no info on that.

Cryscee said...

@Beth- thanks! I was researching further and came across the website saying she was dead, and it said John Goodman is dead. Thought it might have been a hoax. Thanks for clearing it up.

SueRH said...

She's dead. Overdose. http://celebritynewsinc.weebly.com/actress-staci-keanan-passes-away-at-age-35.html

SilverOnyx said...

Omg way to scare me on staci keanan! She's alive!! Geez.

Random ass fact I just found out, the guy who played her rich weasely bf on step by step was the voice of Binx from Hocus Pocus....who knew that?!

That said, no guess on this blind, other than Shelley Long but that's a joke lol could not see that and she would for sure be recognized lol.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Lisa Robin Kelly (the sister on that 70's show) claims to be clean nowadays. The boyfriend that went to jail also fits; they had a fight and were both booked (only she first, he later on for false claims). She says he set her up so he could sue her for domestic abuse (he had self inflicted wounds, and when she said that to the cops the guy suddenly refused to cooperate with the police/judges). Charges were dropped eventually.
And she dated Ashton Kutcher (see the blind reveal on this site about that 70's show).

Cryscee said...

@SueRH - that's the website I found. I don't think it's accurate.

JW said...

Where are you seeing that staci keanan died? I'm not finding that on Wikipedia or IMDB

Just Another Girl said...

I don't get the people questioning the blind's authenticity. Either play along or don't, but whether or not he talked to a hostess for a while or Amanda Siegfried has the time to talk about avocados is irrelevant IMHO.

I liked the Alicia Goranson (original Becky) guess but it looks like she has some jobs lined up. I'm combing through 90's shows on IMDB and coming up blank.

Vicki Cupper said...

Yeah, something's hinky about that site. It's the ONLY site that says anything and TMZ has nothing.

Just_Me said...

I haven't either.. Wiki says Staci is married and 37 years old...

iknowpeople said...

Some of these clues fit Lara Flynn Boyle -- Hit Network Show (Twin Peaks and The Practice) and the world famous actor BF in Jack Nicholson, but she is supposedly still married.

Wasn't there a blind last year about a famous soap actress who lost her house...

Just_Me said...

Found a link for Staci Keanan about her staring in the title of: DEATH & CREMATION.... She's alive!

http://entertainment.gaeatimes.com/2010/05/15/staci-keanan-in-death-and-cremation-123936/

Ellin said...

How about Lara Flynn Boyle? She dated Jack Nicholson and wasn't she on "The Practice"??? That's my vote...

Michelle said...

Wiki says Staci is alive.

rejectedcarebear said...

I've been a cashier part time for the past 5 years and you would not believe the stuff strangers have told me. One lady confessed to me that she was cheating on her husband and then her husband tells me that he thinks his wife is cheating!! They're still married but she lives with her boyfriend but he's moved on too. Why do I know this? Cause I saw the lady at target and she had to fill me in on her life. People love/live to talk about themselves.

Cryscee said...

And Christine Lakin, who played the tomboy little sister on Step by Step, has a show on Youtube. Staci guested in an episode. It was just posted in July. Her cameo is about 3 minutes 12 seconds in.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlNDEEPjB6c&list=PL0D82116713A6559E&index=6&feature=plcp

Cecilia00 said...

What about Cassidy Rae of the show
Models inc.?

I remember her being somewhat religious but still...No work since 2001

Ellin said...

"one of the most famous men in the world as her boyfriend" HAS to be LFB...

Crystal said...

I doubt it being Lara Flynn Boyle because she is very recognizable.

Some people do over share. I love hearing other people stories!!

spacecowboy78 said...

Isn't Lara Flynn Boyle married to a Texas millionaire?

Losingthew8 said...

I was thinking someone from Models Inc or Melrose Place - the sister from 70's show doesn't fit because she didn't have an a-list boyfriend, and I think enty would have said that she'd been in the space before. Yasmine Bleeth - doesn't seem right. I could be wrong, but I think she'd get royalties from Baywatch - not that she couldn't blow (literally) through that - but something doesn't seem right about it.

SilverOnyx said...

What about traci bingham? I think we're on the right track w yazmin bleeth. Traci dated mark walhberg and did a stint or two on celeb rehab. However cannot see that trick everrr working as a hostess.

ms snarky said...

what's happening with Natasha Lyonne these days? She dated that Edward Furlong dude who is nowhere now, but in the 90's was pretty famous.

Beth said...

@SueRH, I think that's a mistake. I'm guessing she did not die in Wigan, England.

it took forever said...

This is tough

Beth said...

@ms snarky, Natasha Lyonne is working again. She was on a couple eps of New Girl.

Cryscee said...

I thought Traci Bingham was on the Surreal House. Not Celeb Rehab.

Flo said...

I would also say Lisa Nicole Carson. Don't know if she dated anyone super famous, maybe George Clooney, cuz she was on ER. She hasn't been seen since the 90s. Apparantely she had loads of drug and mental health issues and trouble with her family. She was gorgeous, with a huge smile.

ms snarky said...

@Beth, thanks, I was too busy to look it up. Good for her, I like seeing people keeping it together.

zombiecrush said...

You guys are ALL missing two of her major shows-- 90210 (college years) and Saved By The Bell. I bet it's Yasmin...

stigs84 said...

I don't think anyone's gotten it yet. The magazine covers and famous boyfriend don't seem to fit the guesses. Yasmine's a great guess. She did one hit network show, but she's most known for Baywatch which was syndicated (altho it started on NBC but wasn't a hit at the time). Her story is fascinating. There's a lengthy interview online somewhere where she goes into detail about how bad her coke addiction was. On her last show, Titans, one of her Co-stars refused to do kissing scenes with her because she made his lips numb from all the coke. They also had a makeup person follow her around and clean up her nose bleeds. And then she got arrested, moved away from Hollywood and gave it all up.

Sarah said...

How odd, I googled Staci/y Keanan only last night. Don't think this is her.

Also don't think it's Traci Bingham. She was in UK Celebrity Big Brother a few years ago and seemed quite together.

As an aside, The Situation is in the current series of UK CBB. One of the other contestants has nicknamed him The Occasional Table.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Lara Flynn B. has acted here and there over the last decade. Just 10 years ago she was in Men In Black II. This isn't her.


Going to Toss out a few names: Monica Keena, Suzanne Cryer, Natalie Raitano, Dina Waters, Amy Jo Johnson?

SkittleKitty said...

Someone who dated a famous model (I looked up who dated Marcus Schenkenburg, but didn't see a woman I thought fit the bill...)?

Carolyn said...

I'm not sure anyone has it, but I will admit that when I think of Lisa Nicole Carson, the first thing I think of is her smile. Don't know if she had any famous boyfriends, though.

When I think of Yasmin, I think her eyes are more startling and noticeable than her smile.

Laura said...

Please, Becky from Roseanne would not be considered a magazine-cover type.

Someone beautiful with a great smile
Someone with magazine-cover looks
Someone who dated "one of the most famous men in the world"
Someone whose TV role ended a decade ago
Someone who was famous enough that you could possibly recognize

Andrea said...

Sherilynn Fenn? She's was stunning in her day but hasn't aged that well (think she was more of a pot head than a coke fiend though), dated famous guys, done magazine covers.

lizziejean said...

Could this be Danielle Fishel from Boy Meets World? She dated Devon Sawa, Lance Bass, and her co-star Ben Savage. She has admitted to problems with alcohol in the past. She was on the cover of Seventeen magazine when the show was at its peak.
I hope its not you Topanga!!

Terri said...

Danielle Fishel has/had a gossip show on a cable channel very recently..so not her.

Ice Angel said...

I liked the Lisa Nicole Carson guess but I think her issues were more mental illness than drugs and alcohol (well-they go hand in hand.)

But she didn't date anyone famous that I can think of or find with a quick google. (I did see a reference to Tupac, but don't think they ever dated.) I loved her and thought she was just so gorgeous! Also, she played on 2 big series at the same time-ER and Ally McBeal and this seems to refernce only one big series.

So I guess I'm stumped. Not sure who Sherlynn Fenn is.

Ice Angel said...

Oh wait...I know who Sherlynn Fenn is-gorgeous and played Liz Taylor (much better than Lohan!) She's been in and out of Hollywood and has stated that she really didn't get lots of parts because she doesn't play the Hollywood game-not a big party goer, flirt, etc..

Still stumped...but good blind

chopchop said...

I don't think it's odd at all that a hostess spilled her life story to a stranger. Especially if the restaurant was dead at the time. I talk to strangers all the time. To me, it's one of the fun things about going out. I'll talk to just about anyone at a bar or a table over in a restaurant ... I end up learning something new and having a laugh with people I've never met before. Guess I'm just a naive little Midwestern girl.

Back to guessing: Sherilynn Fenn is a good guess. What about Sheryl Lee, aka Laura Palmer herself?

chopchop said...

BTW: Sherilynn Fenn dated David Duchovny.

I had myself convinced this was Traylor Howard, until I saw she was on Monk. She dated Clooney in 2000.

KittensRUs said...

Whoever she is, good for her for getting a "normal" job and straightening herself out.

iknowpeople said...

I don't think its LFB, I was pounting out that two of the clues fit for her as two clues might fit for other candidates.

First met Lara when she was in high school and waited tables at Ann Sather, a restaurant in Chicago, along side Robin Tunney, the owner's niece (the owner is now a City Councilman).

She was changed by her time with Jack Nicholson, but I know this is not her.

g.strathmore said...

Who's the "creepy guy from Dexter" other than Dexter?

Glitter said...

Mischa Barton

Mandy Jones said...

What About Charisma Carpenter from Angel?

Terri said...

I'm going with Brooke Langdon. She was on Melrose, which is on syndication. She dated Clooney and after Melrose, she just did bit parts. Nothing noted after 2009, which would explain her working at the restaurant for a year.

And her current pics have that slightly vacant look in her eyes.

Lelaina Pierce said...

Oooh, the font is different on the post. ((whispers)) CONSPIRACY!!!!

Kate said...

I don't think anyone has "gotten it" because I don't think this is real.

Enty is getting too full of himself and adding too much detail to all of his (fictionalized) "blinds." As if some stranger would tell you her life story, her drug problems, her salary and her family drama while she LEADS YOU TO A TABLE IN A RESTAURANT.

Guys, I like reading these too, but you can't take something as fact just because some anonymous blogger says it's so.

Whoever this is, it is amazing that she got clean and is working hard toward a normal life! Too many times you hear of stars that go to rehab, buy go back to the exact same lifestyle as soon as they're out.
Isn't that one of the major parts of rehab, just learning how to live day to day?

Could she maybe be someone on this link?

I like the writer up there whose mom says, "you would talk to a rock". I am also a writer and often say I can make gum talk. I have been at the grocery, trying to get in and out, only to have the cashier tell me half her life story. I have had a number of people tell me more than I want to know. It's not unusual. Sometimes, people just need to unload.

MrWolf said...

The story about the blind may be false - The story about a starlet becoming a hostess, probably true. I'm assuming that he recognized her, confirmed it was her, and then confirmed the details later through supposition and other sources.

However Vanessa Lake (was a huge film noir star) ended up as a bartender in New York.

Most stars are not good with their money - Not just film stars but atheletes as well. Something like 80 to 90% of guys who play in the NFL end up broke. Sad truth.

Lisa Nicole Carson was rumored to have serious mental health problems like schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. She left Hollywood to be taken care of by her family

Sparkles81 said...

Definitely not Traci Bingham. Saw her about a month ago at a restaurant in Cambridge, MA. where she is from. Bartender said she is also a regular there. I don't think anyone else recognized her but between the hooker heels, ripped jeans, and Barbie doll hair and makeup, I knew immediately who she was. The woman could barely bother to order for herself let alone wait on someone else. Diva despite being at D-/F+ celeb status at this point.

lazyday603 said...

The woman killed by Phil Spector had been lead in films and was a hostess at House of Blues the night they met. If you've got to work, you have to take a job.

I like the Crystal Bernard guess. Never been married, according to Wiki acted in a couple of minor LA stage things in the early 2000's , dated Rush Limbaugh.

Not Staci Keanan!! She was attending Southwestern Law School just last year.

alabrava said...

Brooke Langdon used to date Jon Favreau as far as I know. Man she was so hot, that'd be a shame.

Mother Campfire said...

BULLSHIT. There is no fucking way that a hostess will tell you who she boned. NICE TRY.

Mango said...

I don't know who Staci Kenan is so I checked IMDB and--check this out-- "She first wanted to be a waitress."

@ Kate, maybe, just maybe it was 3am and Enty went to get a burger to soak up some of the booze in his stomach; it wasn't busy so the hostess sat down to chat with him. Or, more likely, sometime gave him the tip and he "added a little Enty" to spice up our reading pleasure.

I don't know who it is, but I'd love to see LiLo clean herself up and get a job hostessing at Waffle House. Skeleton shift. By the freeway.

Furiously Curious said...

Sherilynn fenn also dated Johnny depp. Staci keanan, while adorable, does not fit description of beauty and mag covers.

D. K. Kurtz said...

Honestly, you peoples. He can't have recognized her, asked her how she got there, got a short reply, and filled in the rest with already-known details (former flames, former drug use, finances)?

That said, Enty: Cops usually know you're lying when you go on and on and on about every minor detail. Something wrong with "What former 90s TV star is now a hostess at a burgerama?"

Heidi said...

Binx plays McGee in NCIS.

Its just U said...

Who was the girl who played Hillary on Fresh Prince of Bel Air? She was stunning with a great smile and was big in the 90's. She would definitely have made money from that show. At any time that show is being broadcast somewhere in the world. I have no idea who she dated.

Tru Leigh said...

According to AGC Blind Items, this is Lisa Nicole Carson.

But according to this site, she suffers from mental health issues (exasperated by drug use):

http://www.clutchmagonline.com/2009/08/what-happened-to-lisa-nicole-carson/

So it's either not her, or she may be yanking Enty's chain a little.

Heidi Montag

Chismosa Street said...

Sherilyn Fenn dated Prince. She bragged about it like a fangirl who got lucky on her blog. I don't think thus is her though.

Brown Lori said...

all of his blinds sound fabricated. he uses words to up the shock factor. he makes it seem like everything is so sleazy and about sex and drugs. i was wondering that too, how did she share all of this info just like that? strange....

Brown Lori said...

oh and at least she is waitressing instead of being a callgirl like so many of them seem to do...

Ingrid Superstar said...

I don't care if it's fake, I just love talking about actresses that faded into obscurity. Brooke Langton - I haven't heard that name in AGES.

MrWolf (2:35PM) - It's Veronica Lake. One of my faves from the 40's. Is bartender better or worse than call girl, which is what Louise Brooks became for a spell.

Ah Hollywood, so sordid...

Even though this blind will never be revealed, I'm going to guess Alexondra Lee who was on Party Of Five but hasn't done much in the 2000's. Just cause - a random guess. Maybe Farrah Forke who I really liked on Wings but also hasn't done much. These are not correct guesses but hopefully they will clutter your mind with obscure 90's actresses.

g.strathmore said...

You guys, don't you think a big clue is that Enty says she is "dating that creepy guy from Dexter?" Who are the creepy guys from Dexter and who are they dating now?

lilypad said...

Lisa Turtle aka Lark Voorhies. Saved by the bell, dated Martin Lawrence.

Linnea said...

@g.strathmore - Amanda is the one dating the creepy guy from Dexter.

Basil said...

Let's take the names out of it and look at this on face value. If you were a big star who blew all her money away on drugs and bad boyfriends, would you still stay in Hollywood working as a service personel in a place in LA that the chances are pretty good you will be recognized? Well, I wouldn't. I would either go back home where family is, or at least another distant town where no one would know you.

This woman is apparantly working at a place where while not high, is a good chance for her to meet some people, or old friends, or even strangers whom she might think has connections. As someone mentioned up thread, Lana Clarkson (I think that's her last name) was hostessing at a bar on the night Phil Spector took her home and murdered her.

I think if you are still willing to stick around in Hollywood after your salad days, working in a resteraunt, you aren't doing it just so you can pay the rent. You are hoping to MEET someone to get you back into getting acting work again.

yodelay said...

Forget about the blind, I'm just glad Staci Keanan isn't dead!

CarolMR said...

If it's Lisa Nicole Carson, who was her world-famous boyfriend?

B. Profane said...

It's funny that when a BI is posted clearly written in the voice of ur-Enty, so many nobodies come out of the woodwork to slam it and Enty as fake. It's almost as if they know that the real deal is holding forth and want to bash his credibility for their own reasons.

Why attack this BI and its author so vehemently? It's a fairly tame bit of dish. The circumstances are actually quite believable. The only stretch is that a has-been star would be waiting tables at a joint within Enty's usual Beverly/Holly/WeHo/Santa Monica ambit. But maybe this favorite slider joint is down in Venice. I could see that.

SashaJames2 said...

Sadly I think she's dead. She apparently took a lot of pills and was discovered by her partner.

Erin said...

Amanda's dating Quinn from "Dexter." I think he's dirty hot more than creepy, but maybe it's just me.

Mattyo said...

Terry Farrell. She was in Becker, dated Mickey Rourke and hasn't done anything for about 10 years.

AKM said...

I agree with Kate, Brown Lori, et al. I know, I know...I'm no fun.

Staci Keenan is NOT dead, guys. That link had to be about someone else in England with the same name. And no way in hell is Patrick Duffy going to talk about her soaking up rays of sunshine from "[him] and Suzanne Somers." Come on.

AKM said...

I'm sorry...soaking up "the knowledge." Whatever.

elle said...

What about Julianne Phillips? From Sisters with Sela Ward and George Clooney. She was gorgeous and on magazine covers and with Bruce Springsteen (though they were married, not dating.). She left the show a year early and, aside from the final episode of Sisters, never appeared on tv or movies again.

AKM said...

elle, I like that guess. Bruce-as-BF-not-husband could just be to through people off-track. (Assuming that this BI is even true. I remain a skeptic about many many things on this site. But anyway.)

Wait, though...wouldn't she have gotten/gets a very VERY good settlement from Bruce that even a raging coke problem wouldn't blow through, pun intended?

Mary said...

How about Krista Allen? Dated George Clooney, was on Baywatch and used to be married to Mams Taylor, who I believe did some time for something. Not sure all the clues fit, but it's all I have.

AKM said...

I now officially like the Julianne Phillips guess. Apparently Bruce gave her 20 million. Given that they divorced in 1989, that's 23 or so years of partying. One could clearly go through that at a rate of less than a million a year.

She was also first a model and Wiki states, "Phillips has not acted in either television or film roles since 1997. She resides in Los Angeles. According to a USA Today profile in 2006, Phillips had spent time in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and El Salvador. Though she relished the anonymity of leading a life outside of the public eye, she was reading scripts for television pilots and had maintained friendships with several of her Sisters costars."

Unknown said...

I am friends with Dina's (used to be Spybey, now Waters) sister-in-law, brother and nephew. This is definitely not her. She is married to a movie producer named Mark Waters and has at least one kid, maybe two. It is kinda cool to see someone mention her name, though, because she was never all that famous. She does have a wonderful, loving family, though. :-)

Presto said...

Debbe Dunning? ;p

elle said...

I'm back to second guess myself on the Julianne Phillips guess. I hadn't thought about all that money she would have received from the Boss. Also, she's now 52. I lived in LA and I'm thinking a hostess at a trendy burger place like The Counter or Umami Burger would be some hot young thing with Divatude rather than a 50 year old formerly hot woman. Even Hamburger Hamlet was more of a wannabe actor in their 20's type of staff. I'm stumped. Who on 90's TV seemed frantic but also gorgeous and was in her early 20's?

Hendrix said...

First off, I believe the conversation and level of detail, as I often have conversations like this with strangers. I love getting strangers to tell me their life stories. They help me make the characters I write even richer. And people can be incredibly illuminating to talk to.

Second, I like the Crystal Bernard guess. She was gorgeous, did have a lot of magazine covers, and had WINGS which still appears in syndication here and there (and remember, residuals also include payment for someone's work when it's licensed overseas.) Working as a hostess in LA instead of leaving town...well, she may not want to go back to work soon at all, but has taken the job for another reason. .There is a thing some people are advised to do early in their recovery which is to get a "sober job". It's a job that will pay the bills, help you make your financial amends (sounds like this lady has done that - good for her!), and most important, remind you of humility - that you are just an ordinary human in the world of ordinary humans, and no job is "beneath" you. In sobriety we learn how to make ourselves "right sized" in life. Someone who has been a celebrity would do well to have the simple "sober job" experience. The sober job is not necessarily supposed to last forever, but it's a stepping stone to dignity in the early period of sobriety, when you're rebuilding everything your drugs/drinking has torn down.

Whoever she is, I wish her good luck. It takes courage to do what she did, but she's clearly handled all the changes in her life with dignity.

AKM said...

elle, I'm still on board with Julianne. Like I said, one could easily blow through less than a million a year, living it up and Hoovering it up her nose. Plus, she's done NOTHING for YEARS. I think it's a great guess.

stigs84 said...

Haha I, too, love discussing actresses who dropped off the face of the earth and disappeared

stigs84 said...

She's currently on The LA Complex, the lowest rated show on right now. However, it's also one of the best shows out there but no one knows it exists. You should all watch it. It's a drama that exposes what Hollywood's really all about

Volvican said...

It can't be Carson. Enty says that at first he wasn't sure it was her. Between carson's looks and her puppies, there would be no mistaking her. I liked the 70s show girl guess.

Count Jerkula said...

Crystal Bernard, YUM! I'm going to refrain from Googling her to see a recent pic, because I don't want to ruin the masturbatory memories of my youth. I'm gonna check IMDB for Ann Jillian, just so I don't have to see a recent pick when I figure out the name of that show they were on.

I'ma go left field here and throw out Whitley from A Different World. That was 90's, right? I'm sure she was on magazine covers, and I don't think it would take much rock or ice to make her hard to recognize. I think I read a fucked up Blind about her on Diary of a Street King.

Presto said...

I really like that Julianne Phillips guess. We may have a winner!

Although Crystal Bernard does have a great smile and fits some of the other clues, Rush Limbaugh is definitely not "world famous". (What the hell did she see in that guy!?)
