Today's Blind Items - She Gave Up The Baby To Him

This actress has gone through periods of depression and has attempted suicide more than once. She used to be getting close to A list and then drops back. She can't handle the pressure. The fame. It all goes to her head and makes her have more episodes that even her medications can't always help. Our actress started off with a bang in her very first role and she tried to keep it together, but the next year after a stint on a very popular show, she tried to take her life. Everyone was coming up to her and talking to her and acting like they knew her or at least her characters. She said later that it felt like a million people were in her head all the time. She has never really discussed the suicide attempts. Since then she has gone through a year of working really hard and then hiding for a year. She has had some crazy relationships over the years that always have been intense and crazy and passionate and end with huge arguments and fights. The whole cycle usually is one or two months. Then she goes back into her world. Not that long ago she had a baby as a result of one of her wild romances. She tried to take care of the baby and still brings the baby out for photo ops or interviews she knows she is going to have, but for the most part she has given up custody to the celebrity dad. She could not handle the pressure. She tries and the dad is willing to let her have the baby as much as she wants now that our actress has someone to watch her everyday. She is in a long term relationship for the first time in a long time. When she was not with someone, she would go periods of days or sometimes weeks without returning phone calls or answering the phone or answering her door and no one knew if she was alive or the baby.

Bridget Moynahan? Tom Brady celeb dad?

evergrey said...

Anne Heche?

evergrey said...

Ohh,@ patty, that's a good guess!

lizjaxe said...

January Jones

Lauren said...

Halle Berry

Ashlea said...

Great guess Patty!

Beth said...

I like @Patty's guess.

It also makes the comments Gisele made about being a mother to the child more interesting.

RenoBlondee said...

Anne Heche is a good guess, she really fits with the case of the crazies. I thought she was still with the father of her youngest child though. Doesn't she have two, one from her ex that she left for this one?
Maybe she's split from her 2nd husband? Anyone know?

SkittleKitty said...

Like the Bridget guess with the exception of her role on Blue Bloods, which seems like it would be difficult for this woman to maintain. But it doesn't say she isn't working...

Lauren said...

I guess Halle has had relationships that last longer than a couple of months...so scratch that. Who is the famous father of January's baby? The rest of the clues seem to fit her though!

lizjaxe said...

@Patty Their kid is 4 or 5 now does it fit. This makes it seem like it was somewhat recent 1 maybe 2 years.

rejectedcarebear said...

This is could be a blind item about a friend of mine :( except being an actress or having a celeb baby daddy. No clue tho.

Amy in MI said...

Tom and Bridget were together for a while. Not a whirlwind romance

califblondy said...

This makes me sad. Depression is horrible.

TheEntrepreneursWife said...

But BM and TB were together for a long time -- not one or two months as the BI suggests.

Beth said...

Moynahan has been in a long-term relationship with McG since 2010, according to Wiki. That would be her first relationship since 2006, when she and Brady broke up.

ljsmed said...

Sad... Mental illness is a horrible thing to have to deal with.

SueRH said...

Very sad.

Jennifer H. said...

I don't know this Bridget lady from Eve. She was almost A-list at some point?

lizjaxe said...

TB and BM were together for 2 years not a short time like the BI suggests. She has said they didn't know she was even pregnant when they broke up found out 3 months after.

Beth said...

Actually, it doesn't say anything about the specific relationship that produced the child. It says that it was crazy and passionate and that her normal relationships last two months. They could be mutually exclusive in this case.

That said, it does read as if the child is quite young, but that could be Enty trying to throw us off.

Baka Neko said...

If it is JJ then I won't give her any trouble for her unsociable behavior.

Kari said...

JJ still has her baby though I think.

crila16 said...

*karen* said...

Bridget Moynihan's first role was nothing special. Before she dated Tom Brady, she dated another guy for three years, according to IMDB.

I also think that Enty shouldn't refer to the kid as a baby unless he or she is under 3. Her kid is turning 5 this month.

Anyway, doesn't mean that it isn't her, but I think that we should see if we can come up with someone else.

Jennifer H. said...

"Started off with a bang" sounds like a clue regarding her first role.

Jennifer H. said...

Doesn't sound like her.

lizjaxe said...

I guessed JJ and after re-reading the Blind i'm not sure it's her. It says "after a stint on a very popular show". She has been on Mad Men from the beginning correct? That wouldn't qualify a stint. Has she done other TV?

Fijigrrl said...

evangeline lilly? (haven't checked imdb yet but for some reason thought of her)

jw11 said...

sounds way worse than depression to me. Mental illness is horrible.

crila16 said...

Bridget was never in any way shape or form ever an A list. Not even close. She's lucky if she hits a C list on a good day.

...and FYI...Tom broke up with Bridget because she's a plain old raging manipulative biatch who wanted him to marry her. His family hated her and loved Giselle. I know this because my bro in law is very close friends with the Brady family and was even at the sister's wedding.

crila16 said...

Love the Evag Lilly guess. That sounds about right.

Amber said...

This reads like someone older, to me.

Cara said...

January Jones works too much, Halle's relationships tend to last longer than a couple of months, and as much as I hate Bridget Moynahan, I don't think she fits the timeline (and she's more a C-lister).

I feel like maybe figuring out what the popular TV show was is key to this one....

SilverOnyx said...

I was thinking Evangeline Lilly too but it doesn't seem the baby daddy is a celeb, unless she lied and it was that Dominic Monaghan guy.

Jennifer H. said...

Evangeline didn't do a "stint" on a show. She was on "Lost" from beginning to end. I don't think this is her, either.

Kelli said...

The pieces would fit for Bridget M. except for the fact that she was with Tom for 2 years. Her first big TV role was Sex in the City. Also, I remember meeting her in November 2006 at a fashion event, and she was with Michael Kors, Zac Posen & Jane Krakowski. Her show Six Degrees had just started and I told her how much I loved the show. What is so ironic is that I remember talking with her & thinking how depressed she seemed that night. My friend actually asked her for a picture with her and she barely smiled. You could tell she wasn't into it.

*karen* said...

Sounds like someone who was on a season or less of a show--kinda like how Tom Selleck played Monica's boyfriend on Friends. We need to think of popular shows where one of the main guys had a girlfriend for several episodes.

GP said...

"Our actress started off with a bang in her very first role and she tried to keep it together, but the next year after a stint on a very popular show, she tried to take her life. Everyone was coming up to her and talking to her and acting like they knew her or at least her characters."

Characters...plural, as in characters on the same "very popular show"? Sounds like a SNL actress to me...

Sadie said...

Whoever this is I feel for her. I was severely depressed in my younger years, whilst I was raising children and sometimes when I look back I wonder how exactly my children and I made it through.

dia papaya said...

This one gives me the sads. Mental illness is not a joke and needs proper care just like heart disease or diabetes. Hope this poor woman gets help and that her baby is somewhere safe while she gets the care she needs.

I have no idea who it could be.

annabella said...

it can't be evangaline lilly as she didn't have her baby with a celebrity. guesses have to fit all of the clues, not just a few.

it doesn't seem like jan. jones or halle either. halle is working and is at least A list if not A+. also, the child is still a baby, and halle's child is older than that.

All about Eve said...

That's an interesting guess but does she have a baby?

Fijigrrl said...

thanks for the tutorial

Beth said...

If this is Moynahan, think of all the shit she took from people who confuse TV and reality for keeping Carrie and Big apart.

B. Profane said...

"Characters...plural, as in characters on the same "very popular show"? Sounds like a SNL actress to me..."

Any working actress will be doing multiple characters. Besides, no SNL mommy is married to a celebrity except for Amy Poehler and she's seen with her kids all the time.

MissPixy said...

I'm sure it's probably not her, but what about Minnie Driver? She has a baby with someone who COULD be a celebrity (she won't reveal who he is), and she hit it pretty big with Circle of Friends. Also, she's been on Will and Grace...

jane3113 said...

"Started off with a bang in her first role." JJ first movie was about Handguns and shooting an intruder.

Maybe calling it a "stint" on a popular show is to make it less obvious? I don't watch Mad Men but do know that people have strong opinions about her character on the show. I bet lots of people say stupid things to her.

Amber said...

MissPixy - I was just going to guess Minnie Driver. However, if it's a celebrity dad, we'd almost have to know, because there would be a celebrity dad walking around with a baby no one knows he has.

lizjaxe said...

Minnie Driver has revealed who the father is. He was a writer on The Riches which she starred in.

dia papaya said...

I thought Minnie Driver did reveal the dad. I have to look it up.

mikey said...

I'm going with BM and think "Not that long ago she had a baby as a result of one of her wild romances." can apply to a 5 year old (not born that long ago) and TB was a wild romance! Google image BM and her son and there are only photos of them together when he was a baby/toddler, nothing more recent.

MissPixy said...

Ah ok! I'm a long time lurker, first time guesser, so now i've got my feet wet in the blind items game!

Princess said...

I don't know her history, but maybe Selma Blair? She's always seemed a bit moody and odd to me.

Brooke said...

It's not January Jones. She has more than a stint on Mad Men, she is a main character and the show is not over yet. She was filming Mad Men at the end of her pregnancy AND after the birth of her baby. There are stories about her breastfeeding her baby in between donning the "fat suit" she wore for all of season 5. This feels like someone who wasn't working for a long time after the birth of her baby. Plus, she never "brought her baby out" for photo ops or interviews. She always does group those along with the Mad Men cast, I don't think I've ever seen her do any alone.

dia papaya said...

lizjaxe beat me to it ;)

msgirl said...

I was thinking Brady and Bridget while reading this but some things don't fit.

Evangeline is filming The Hobbit.

lizjaxe said...

Selma Blair is doing Anger Mangement with Charlie Sheen.

Pookie said...

hmm. anne h. or halle?

anne:
'stint on a very popular show' = men in trees
'some crazy relationships' = ellen
'celebrity dad' = james tupper (men in trees)
-child is currently 3 yrs old


halle:
'stint on a very popular show' = knot's landing
'some crazy relationships' = all of them
'celebrity dad' = model dude whatshisname
-child is currently 4 yrs old

GP said...

"Besides, no SNL mommy is married to a celebrity except for Amy Poehler and she's seen with her kids all the time."

I thought maybe I was losing it, but I reread it twice and I see no mention of marriage. Custody arrangements also happen between unmarried folks.

lizjaxe said...

Halle has talked about her suicide attempts but think they were when she was a teenager.

Grey said...

Anne Heche fits best I think

KaySea said...

Definitely not Selma Blair - she's been with her baby daddy (Jason Bleick) for quite a few years and they seem to be a fairly happy, normal, down to earth family unit.

Sean said...

For those who guessed Tom Brady...

There is a pic of Giselle and both of Tom's sons taken today at Patriots training camp. No Bridget in sight.

Amber said...

Yeah, I like Anne Heche for this. Selma Blair is involved with childrens' charities and stuff, too. That seems like it would be an odd choice for someone who doesn't really want anything to do with their kid.

Sherry said...

Whoever it is she must live in hell. She sounds like she suffers from schizophrenia. I hope she finds some medication that helps her. Just too sad.

I do like the Minnie Driver guess because she seems to have had fits and starts in her career.

musesx9 said...

I am thinking someone else, not Bridget, not Selma, none of the guesses today...I feel like I should know who this is. I had my head thinking Ashlee Simpson, but it doesn't really fit. Someone like that maybe?

FSP said...

The father of Anne Heche's son is not a celebrity. Other than that most clues point to her. She's always been a bit of a loon.

hairlikebear said...

what about rachel dratch?

IDoTheRobot said...

Yea

ash said...

i think this is supposed to be bridget, though not everything fits 100%. started off with a bang could be coyote ugly - true it wasn't her very first role but it's the role that really launched her career. and her sex and the city stint did follow that. i think you could argue she was close to A-list in the early 2000s, when she was in some big movies and just after sex and the city.

Bad Secretary said...

This is so sad. Depression is a terrible, terrible thing.

Mrs.E said...

Rachel Dratch without a doubt:
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/03/26/amy-poehler-talks-to-rachel-dratch-about-her-memoir.html

Wrote her memoir after hitting "rock bottom"
Unexpected pregnancy at 44
BF moved closer to them after his birth to help out
Did 6 episodes on king of queens

So sad.

B. Profane said...

"I thought maybe I was losing it, but I reread it twice and I see no mention of marriage."

Sorry, my mistake. The two unmarried SNL mommies are Maya Rudolph and, as someone else mentioned, Rachel Dratch. Maya, of course, has three kidlets with the three-first-names guy, not one. Rachel's baby daddy isn't famous.

B. Profane said...

Totally not Dratch. No suicide attempt. No history of crazy relationships. She's had sole custody of her tot since the day he/she was born. I can go on....

B. Profane said...

And Dratch isn't in a LTR and hasn't been...although one hopes that maybe her and her baby daddy might end up together. The guy is totally un-famous, though, so this can't be Dratch.

http://www.slate.com/articles/double_x/doublex/2012/04/is_rachel_dratch_too_ugly_for_hollywood_.html?wpisrc=twitter_socialflow

"stint" on second city
Her memoir mentions that her relationships were so bad that she though one was a cannabol.

B. Profane said...

Sigh. Second City isn't a "role," and she didn't start out with a bang on SNL. Give it up, it's not Dratch. She wasn't happy about getting passed over/betrayed for the lead in 30 Rock, but she has not been a reclusive wreck since she left SNL. The clues totally don't fit her.

DueDiligence said...

Sounds like Heche. She won a Daytime Emmy in her first role in Another World ("started off with a bang"). Going "back to her world" could be a clue.

She was then on 1 episode of Murphy Brown at its apex. 2 years later did 1 episode of Young Indiana Jones.

She basically lost custody of her first child Homer to her first husband, but he's not really a celebrity, he's a cameraman named Coley Lafoon. His celeb status may be made up to throw us off a little.

The rest of the details are pretty much public knowledge.

chigirl said...

I definitely think this is Anne Heche. She is from Chicago and her family has spoken about her mental illness.

BitterBlondin said...

But Anne Heche has two sons. Wouldn't that have been mentioned?

ash said...

also no way was rachel dratch ever close to A-list

diatribes and dish said...

Her baby daddy isn't a celebrity, though. That said, I have no guesses.

Rolf said...

Reading this BI I'm thinking Mena Suvari. Am I wrong?

Slim said...

@crila 16. Thank you! I have always told people that BM trapped TB into pregnancy. She wanted to get married and he wanted OUT. Not only because he met Gis. If this is her, I will be nicer about hating on her, but I have no tolerance for women who use pregnancy/babies as pawns to try and own the father.

ash said...

aw reading those articles about rachel dratch made me kinda sad. are she and her son's father still together? she is so talented and you do get the feeling that if she were more attractive her career/life would have been so different - look at amy poehler or tina fey vs her. kind of sucks bc male comedians certainly don't have to be attractive in order to be successful. i hope she's happy and doing well.

samantha said...

Are we reading the same blind? Bridget Moynihan doesn't fit. Her "very first role" was a minor blip that didn't bring her any fame. She had two or three more roles before Coyote Ugly. Even if Enty is fudging a bit and meant her very first FILM role, were that role and her role in SAtC REALLY big enough, important enough, that people would act like they knew her/the characters?

Moynahan does NOT have a pattern of working a year and not working a year. Especially recently--she's been on a television show for two years now. She does NOT have a pattern of relationships that last one or two months--if anything, she's a serial monogomist.

She also comes from a super-tight family who would not let their grandchild/nephew be in harm's way like that. And do you honestly think Tom Brady would let weeks go by without finding out how his infant child was, as implied by the last line of the blind? If that were the case, he would have had someone out there and full custody, pronto.

mialou said...

I can't help but think "started off with a bang" is important. What actress was killed off in her first role?

mialou said...

Anne Heche was on Another World for several years, not a one off. I don't think this is her.

deree said...

Anne Heche played twins on "Another World". Marley and Vickie. Looking back I seem to recall one of the twins being in trouble for a shooting. I was really young when my mom watched this but it rings a bell. It would go with the blind well. Soap opera characters get a lot of fans who have a hard time telling reality and the show plot apart.

Shallow Gal said...

Bridget is a great guess. I was just looking at a photo of The Brady family earlier and noticing how his boy with Bridget was there with him and Giselle and they were all looking like a neat and tidy little family. Though he wouldn't qualify as a baby..but other stuff fits here.

Amber Hogan said...

Doesn't the phrase about getting see the baby since there is always someone there to watch HER, mean the child is female?? Or is it meaning the mom?

Jilly said...

Just throwing it out there as another single hollywood mom, Jaime Pressly! I don't think it is Bridget because too many clues don't fit... Although the clues don't work perfect for Jaime either, she does seem to have crazier relationships.

B. Profane said...

"[Dratch] is so talented and you do get the feeling that if she were more attractive her career/life would have been so different - look at amy poehler or tina fey vs her."

The ironic thing is that back when they had a two-woman show together, Dratch was consider the pretty one. There's a clip of them doing PR for the show on the 'net: Rachel looks cute and and girly,and Tina looks like a bitter, Greek pixie-dyke.

I saw Dratch on Ferguson's show pitching her book recently and she seems much happier. She also seems to have gotten a good stylist because, though she's as curvy as ever, she looked hot.

B. Profane said...

Seems like Pressley's problem is just being a big ol' white trash drunk. I've got a few cousins like that.

surfer said...

When I first started reading the blind, I immediately thought of Samaire Armstrong - but I don't think she has a baby.

Although she's been working steadily for a long time, we (okay, me) first became familiar with her on the OC, which she left abruptly. Same thing happened when she was on Dirty Sexy Money. I remember hearing she had serious issues, although I can't remember if they were mental health or drugs. But again, I don't think she has a baby.

I also find it hard to believe this could be Bridget Moynihan, as she's been working pretty steadily.

SashaJames2 said...

Don't know if it fits Bridget, but just had to share my encounter with her. Years ago when I lived in Vancouver, I was a supervisor at a hotel she was staying at, and I happened to answer a call from her as everyone disappeared when her name came up on the caller id. She screamed and yelled at me becos she didn't like the colour of the bed covers. Called me names as well. After I got off the phone I checked her profile as we created profiles for repeat guests and celebrities, and in there was written that she needed to be treated with great caution and care cos she was just a horrible and nasty guest. Worked in that hotel for 2.5 years and never experienced a guest as nasty as she was. So was happy when Tom dumped her. Sorry for the long spiel.

News said...

Sharon Stone, the father has the custody, always thought it was weird.


Also some other actress recently I read something similar but can't remember right now.

OMAMA is BROKO said...

@SashaJames2- First off, I thank you for sharing your story.

Second, I don't know about you, but I can't ever see myself becoming so "high Profile" that I would EVER bitch about the color of the sheets, especially at a hotel.

Sounds a bit like my Carol Alt experience. She'd come into a restaurant on Greenwich ave that I used to hostess at, and no one, and I mean NO ONE would ever want her in their section (she was very high on herself, and so far from being the most high profile celeb to come into the eatery, but that didn't phase her). Once, it was her birthday, and her hubby wanted us all to sing happy b-day, as we usually did for every customer...however, only myself and one other waiter who I was kinda seeing at the time came forth to sing. Everyone else disappeared.....and when you tips are involved and ppl STILL disappear, you know you're unliked.

//I still don't know if I'd go with the Moynihan guess for this blind though. I sounds a bit more like the Dratch guess. Her eyes always look so sad.

B. Profane said...

Stone adopted a couple more kids, plus she hasn't done any TV since her early years. And she was definitely A-list at the height of her career.

Rick Wrinklebottom said...

Neither Dratch or Moynahan Have ever even been close to A-list, and Halle is Actively fighting for custody of her kid, so it doesn't seem like she'd be giving up the baby to her ex so easily...

Heche is nuts & was close to A-list in the late 90's, so even if everything's not a 100% certain fit, she's probably the best guess so far.

PugsterMom said...

Rachel is in a very stable relationship with her baby daddy and is even talking about another child

kevio89 said...

I think this fits Bridget. The stint on a popular show would be Sex and the City. And she has worked kind of on and off over the years. Her breakout role was probably Coyote Ugly but she has also been in I-Robot. If this is her this is so sad. I feel for her but she has been in a long term relationship with McG so he could be helping her through her demons. And it makes sense Gisele and Tom always have their son with them. I rarely see Bridget with him. So sad :(
I love her.

Me said...

i like the sharon stone guess. she's talked about how depressed she was after her divorce, not getting out of bed, etc.

Sunny said...

I think this is Anne Heche too. My God, this woman has been through hell. Sibling who committed suicide, molested by her father, father dying in his 40's from Aids.

Her "characters" - The twins on Another World

"Felt like a million people were in her head" - After Anne had her breakdown when the relationship with Ellen ended, it seemed like she had a psychotic break. Claiming to be an alien named Celestia etc

"She goes back into her world" - again, claiming to be an alien named Celestia

A pregnancy as a "result of one of her wild romances" - Anne broke up with Coley because of her affair with "celebrity" James Tupper. Co-star of Men in Trees

"She has had some crazy relationships over the Years" - At least publicly, she has only had one lesbian relationship. That was with Ellen DeGeneres

I don't know if she's still with James Tupper, but Coley seemed to be raising their son Homer under the assumption it was difficult to care for him while she was filiming Men in Trees in Canada. A lot of unknowns to her current situation, but she has been through quite a bit in her lifetime so I feel it would explain a lot of her mental health issues now.

car54 said...

Didn't Anne Heche fight for custody when she divorced?

And we see January Jones with her little boy every week in the photos. If her secret baby daddy had custody how would that work? She is out and about (at least in the photos) with her child a lot.

Jessi said...

Dia~ I got my placement! Here a percent little guy about 11 months old. He's been here for about a week. He is not available for adoption just yet but it looks like it will go that way. Lots of meetings and evaluations right now but that should calm down. Thought you might want to know!

Anna said...

How about Tea Leone and David Duchovny? (I can't spell). If you look at the item on David, Enty muses why David has custody of their kids.

NaughtyNurse said...

Somebody from Big Bang Theory?

Newborn said...

@Mrs. E

What's funny is that in the article posted about Rachel Dratch, she mentions Minnie Driver:

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/03/26/amy-poehler-talks-to-rachel-dratch-about-her-memoir.html
"Rachel: That’s so funny, ‘cause after all my no-work lamenting in the book, right when the book comes out, I get a pilot. It’s written by Kari Lizer who wrote The New Adventures of Old Christine. We just shot it the other night in L.A. and it’s with Minnie Driver and Andrea Anders and I think it’s really funny so, we’ll see."

dia papaya said...

@sunny - I think you're right. Anne has always been a bit unstable. Didn't know about the dad and sibling though. Thanks for breaking it down.

NaughtyNurse said...

Anna is right, I think. I just saw that blind about Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny! Didn't realized that he has full custody of his kids with Tea Leoni. Sad.

Fairmaiden327 said...

halle

KittyKitty said...

That's what I was thinking. The blond from big bang theory .. But she was never A list.

D. K. Kurtz said...

I got all the way down here without anyone guessing Katherine Heigl. Awesome. She's mine.

Phillipe Reynauldo said...

What about Shannyn Sossamon?

The movie being A Knight's Tale, and the show being Law and Order:SVU.

jaariel said...

Halle hates GA too much to ever give him Nahla.

I HATE depression & mental illness with a passion. It's a bitch and so is Minnie Driver. I CAN'T with her.

PugsterMom said...

Katherine seems thrilled with motherhood and has just adopted her 2nd child. Definitely not her.

CincyNat said...

Not Rachel Dratch! She is a lovely, normal person and her book is great. After reading it I felt like she is the most normal celeb in the world.

ardleighstreet said...

Rachel Lee Cook.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

I was almost gonna saw Rose McGowan, until the baby part came along. She has/had issues, crazy relationships (Mr Manson anyone?/stolen Robert Rodriguez from his wife). First big role was Scream, she was killed off, then did Charmed and is really screwing up her face now.
Bridget Mon-something is a good guess. Sad..

Shit You Can't Buy said...

*say

SaraLa said...

Shannyn Sossamon was also in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang hence the "started off with a bang" comment. First time writing on this!
SF
