Today's Blind Items - She Is A Survivor

This actress is C+. To a certain group of people she is probably a B, but for most of the world, you would be hard pressed to identify what hit show she is in because even thought it is a hit, chances are you haven't watched it. Anyway, our actress has been through more than most. She was subject to some time with the same abuser who has managed to get his hands on other tween stars. The difference with this actress is that she knew how to handle herself. She told him no and when he said he could get her more roles she still said no. She could not stop him from groping her because he was bigger and stronger, but that was all he managed to get. Our actress has a lot of experience fending guys off because unlike most young actresses who primarily work with people their own age, our actress has always worked with lots of older actors and has been fending them off since a very early age. There have been times where she spent entire days hiding out in a locked dressing room because the 50 something co-star would come try and find her whenever he got drunk. This is not to say that she has not been persuaded. She will be the first to admit that she lost her virginity to a guy who would go to jail if anyone found out. She was a teen and he was in his late 30's. She is not much older than a teen now, but has always seemed to have been acting and making her own decisions. When you meet her she has a shell that is so hard and no one ever gets to crack it. Ever. Too much drama, too many fights. Never let them see who you really are she says. She has a boyfriend right now and a guy she sees on the side and they both think they know her and that she is crazy about them. Nope. She is with them because she feels like it is part of her job description. Great acting job, great boyfriend, and then someone on the side who cares for her, but she does not give much back. At least emotionally.

I was thinking Miranda Cosgrove the whole time, but IDK anything about her personal life. She stared on Drake and Josh (Schneider show) and is now iCarly. But I'd say she's an A in the tween world.

Miranda Cosgrove

Vicki Cupper said...

God damn, that's depressing.

Frufra said...

*starred*, not stared. I'm not insulting her acting skills, I swear!

Frufra said...

She's been in movies, too - School of Rock comes to mind, but IDK if there have been others.

Sarah said...

Shailene Woodley?

MontanaMarriott said...

I like MC and the 50 something actor could be the man that played her dad on Drake & Josh.

SilverOnyx said...

Eh I think she's a good guess but I'm not convinced. She's still only 19, so she's still a teen, and I can't find any info on a bf or where'd she would have a lot of adult costars. I don't have a better guess, but I'm gonna keep looking.

IDoTheRobot said...

Miranda Cosgrove was in School of Rock too.

Amber said...

I'm lost when it comes to Tweeners, unless they've had an exceptional amount of drama i.e. Miley, Demi, Selena

lazyday603 said...

I just hope Miranda Cosgrove keeps doing comedy. She has the best comic timing of any actress this side of Emma Stone.

EmEyeKay said...

Can someone check Dan Schneider on imdb and see who he's directed, someone in their 20s? I think Miranda is too young to be the subject of the blind.

Sarah said...

This doesn't sound like a tween star, this is worded to sound like a kid that worked on an adult show. Even with a few adults, I-Carly is a tween show.
This sounds more like a kid on a network drama or HBO, something with primarily adult actors.

IDoTheRobot said...

Victoria Justice or Elizabeth Gillies?

SilverOnyx said...

It also sounds like she was at one point subject to Dan schneider but isn't anymore. All references to that are in past tense. And I would agree they seemed more like a kid on an adult show with the rest of their experience. Im going thru his shows to try to find a match now.

Frufra said...

I'm off the MC guess - she's only 19 now. But FYI, I had Larry Miller pegged as the creepy oldster. She was in Keeping Up with the Steins with him in 2006.

Just Another Girl said...

Everything but the C+ rating and the TV show makes me think Scarlett Johansson.

IDoTheRobot said...

Dan Schneider also did What I Like About You and The Amanda Show. Could this be Amanda Bynes?

Amber said...

He also did All That, which also had Amanda Bynes IIRC. Wouldn't there be a comment about what a mess she is, or would that make it too obvious?

lazyday603 said...

OK I did the IMDB thing on Dan Schnieder. He was the fat friend from the movie "Better of Dead". And he's still pretty hefty:

http://www.imdb.com/media/rm1012836864/nm0773759

I'd sure like to see some independent confirmation that this guy is a child molester. That link to the web hacker group's threat against him boiled down to accusing him of dressing the stars of his shows too provocatively. Adults have been accusing teen girls of dressing too provocatively since the invention of the mini skirt 50 years ago. I guess I don't want this to be true about him because iCarly is an extremely funny television show. Like genius funny.

CarmeliteLady said...

I am on the Miranda Cosgrove train, she's on a hit tweener show that none of us watch. All the clues fit. Plus she has seemed very cool, mature, detached, self posessed and seems like she has great boundaries. I'd worry about her ability to get close to anyone when she grows up and wants a relationship. But def great qualities to have in the sick sick world of hollywood and children.

auntliddy said...

Mila kunis. Hard shell.

Frufra said...

I'm wavering now - reading Internet goss re. Larry Miller tells me he's a known drunk who suffered a drunken fall this spring and has been absent from his podcasts with Adam Carolla. Apparently, he's in rehab for the brain injury incurred.

Huh. Maybe Enty thinks MC is older than 19. Larry Miller was also in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang with RDJ in 2005 (love that movie, btw). Conspiracy theorists, assemble!!

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

Wasn't Miranda also on Himmm's list of the good guys?

Frufra said...

@DontRain - JUST coming back to add that tidbit!!

*karen* said...

@DontRain and @Frufra, you guys beat me to it!

djphob said...

I don't know WHY but I keep thinking Kat Dennings. I suck at guessing and probably wrong. Go ahead, tear it apart!

I also got the impression she was not a "tween star" like Miley or something but was a star when she was a tween. Which is... Not really Kat Dennings. But she was on Less Than Perfect. Guy she lost it to could be John Corbett while filming Raise Your Voice. But he was in his forties. Ooh, or Paul Rudd in 40 Year Old Virgin. Teehee. I don't know. Don't mind me...

SilverOnyx said...

Google a picture of Jamie Lynn Spears kid... The most recent ones.

djphob said...

Wouldn't Miranda Cosgrove be an A to a "certain group of people", though?

Zachsmommy01 said...

What about Erin Sanders? She plays Camille on Big Time Rush, was Quinn on Zoey 101 (a Dan Schneider show), was in Young and the Restless and had a recurring role on Carnivale on HBO. She's 22.

I really think Miranda Cosgrove would be considered A list not B among the tweens.

chopchop said...

Miranda is way bigger than B/C list.

Cryscee said...

Yeah, Miranda is A to the teens for sure.

Just Another Girl said...

How about Larisa Oleynik? She started out on The Secret World of Alex Mack and Boy Meets World. She was recently cast on Pretty Little Liars which could be why Enty said you probably haven't seen it.

Sarah said...

The above guess might be a good one. My teen loves that Pretty Little Liars shit.
I do think it's not Miranda, she's too well known. Kat Dennings may be a good one, too, she was never pegged as a "CHILD ACTOR" the way some are.

Cryscee said...

I think the Erin Sanders guess is a good one. The Y & R would tie in with working with older people.

RenoBlondee said...

Ha, I just came on to say also that Miranda is DEFINETLY A list, so not her. I too remember Himmmm putting her on that list.
As for a guess I got nothin'.

SilverOnyx said...

Okay that's obviously not definitive, however it sure doesn't look like her or Casey Aldridge and that was the rumor. There's just way too much rumors about him for his hands to be clean. Plus if you just look at videos he posts while on set , his relationship with those children is completely unprofessional.

Sunny said...

@Frufa
You called???
Just kidding! Taking my kids out and I never comment if I'm reading the site on my phone. Had to get one last one in :)

@Zachsmommy01
Great research, Lady!! :)

SilverOnyx said...

Larissa is a good guess. She was in ten things I hate about you as well. Plus seriously who didn't love Alex Mack back in the day?

Cathy said...

Larisa Oleynik is 32 - not exactly "not much older than a teen now." And this actress is currently on a show that most people don't watch, so her upcoming stint on PLL doesn't fit and plenty of people watch her on Mad Men.

EmEyeKay said...

Thanks to the peeps looking up Dan on imdb. He's our guy, we just gotta find the girl, and I'm on my way out the door.

"She is not much older than a teen now, but has always seemed to have been acting and making her own decisions." Mid-twenties? Early?

beguessin said...

Hit shows "none of us" would watch - BBC, syfy, abcfamily?

SilverOnyx said...

Haha changing it to Erin sanders, good job!

Frufra said...

@Sunny - have fun with the kiddos! Are you wearing the cape :-)?

Have a lovely Monday!

Crazy Cady said...

At first I thought MC, but she is way bigger than B/C, as anyone with a girl of a certain age in the home knows. Plus, she is singer and actress. I have always gotten the feeling she is a tough girl. In the interest of keeping an eye on what my daughter likes, I have read several articles that talk about her mom always being with her on tapings and tours and when she is not working she is doing normal going to school and having sleepover things...very down-to-earth.

They have taped the last show, which will air in November, and I hope she gets on something else with great writers because she is one of the best kid actresses I have seen. All of the other kids on the show are good too. Believe me, I have seen every episode more than five times each. ;)

MontanaMarriott said...

Hmmm after reading Erin Zanders impressive resume, the kid has worked with a who's who of adult celebrities, so I am prone to switch my guess to her. If we want to use Y&R as the show I would say the 50 year old she ran from could be Eric Braeden. Great guess BTW

Melinda9 said...

Kaley Cuoco?

ButterKwup said...

Except Eric Braeden aka Victor Newman is easily 112 years old...

Mamaroni said...

Victor would never! Jack Abbott might

kelgela said...

Brenda Song? idk

dia papaya said...

I was thinking Kaley Cuoco. I have no idea. I never watched any DS shows and have no patience to research all the tween stars.

kelgela said...

Ohhhh Emily Osmend or however you spell her name.

She was on Hannah Montana and has been on a couple of other shows not on Disney although I can't remember them.

Kewi said...

Jennette McCurdy just turned 20 in June and has been acting since she was 8

revell48 said...

demi lavato

she dated wilmar valdaramma? he dated every tween

she on xfactor-popular but no one watch

skimpymist said...

There is nothing in this blind that makes me believe this is miranda cosgrove cause didn't she secretly date drake bell for a while.

cdanluva said...

Kirstin Dunst. It doesn't say she is still a teen.

lazyday603 said...

So Pippa Middleton is in the random photos today. This must be her.

Cryscee said...

Kaley Cuoco is on Big Bang Theory. That's pretty well-known hit show. So I would say people have watched it which contradicts the blind.

lazyday603 said...

Ashley Benson for the win? She's in the pictures today.

Bluevelvet said...

What about the girl from Modern Family? She has a new boyfriend and staged photos. She also works mainly with adults on a hit show.

Dizzel said...

Yikes! I Googled. There is a frightening resemblance between child & pedo-possible-Dad!
:(:(:(

Cryscee said...

@lazyday - I agree. As I posted over there, she was on Days of Our Lives for 3 years.

selenakyle said...

Whoever it is, she is also ANA/MIA...guaranteed.

Which makes me think Cosgrove.

If I had kids, no way in HADES would I let them into the meat grinder known as Entertainment.

trouble bubble said...

I think it is the other girl from iCarly, who plays Sam. Jeanette McCurdy, if I'm not mistaken. She is not the main character, so definately B in the tween world. She had been in the business since 8. She is 20 since June, barely out of the teens

Selock said...

Michelle Trachtenberg?

HalleGoLightly said...

Quick note,

I hate when people write the contemplative, "Hmmm" in their posts. When I'm scrolling through, it always looks like either a post by Himmmm or someone responding to a post by Himmmm. FWIW.

lazyday603 said...

OK somebody put the Spears kid picture up next to the father's & they both have a cross eyed thing going & their mouths are identical:

Casey's Kid

Dan Schnieder is so fat every baby looks a little like him. Just like they all look like Winston Churchill.

gr8p said...

Damn, life can make you hard can't it? This Blind Item depressed me a bit.I have no idea who this is but she sounds like a real ice queen. Understandably so..

Jenn719 said...

I think Ashley Benson is a really good guess. She's 22. She was on Zoey 101, but looks like for only 1 episode and a "video". Most of Dan Schneider's people go from one show of his to the next. She was on Days of our Lives for 3 years when she was in her early to mid-teens, which would have put her with manily older actors. The only reason I know her name is because my daughter got me hooked on Pretty Little Liars back in June. She's in the random phots with a comment about her looking "uncomfortable". I also saw a picture of her last week out with Taylor Lautner.

iknowpeople said...

I'm with Ashley Benson guesses. John Aniston, who also was on Days of Our Lives, is too old to qualify for the 50 something guy. Males who were regulars on the show whose age match up and were on the show when she was include Peter Reckell, Drake Hogestyn. Either of them known for a drinking problem?

Kinsey Holley said...

Just echoing all the folks who said MC is very A list and that iCarly is a brilliant show. I watch it even when my kid's not around - Phineas and Ferb is the other kids' show I do that for.

And I like to know about the teen stars my Diva's into - I'm comfortable with watching MC. Loved that she never liked Hannah, love that she taped a poster of Justin Bieber to her punching bad. (Selena's dead to her now. Good thing Waverly Place is over.)

And um - I watch SyFy. All the time.

Suzanne said...

How about Allison Scagliotti? She was Josh's smart-mouthed off and on GF on Drake and Josh. She's now on Warehouse 13 (def a hit on SyFy) and seems like a tough cookie.

Anna said...

The age isn't right for this BV, but the description of a talented child actress who grows up on a set of adults and learns to become hard-as-nails sounds a lot like Evan Rachel Wood.

Margaux said...

Ashley Benson I think. Lots of older people on Days of Our Lives - she was on that show for a few years. She's really pretty, I'm glad she's been able to fend most of the sleazy ones off. She's stronger than a lot of her peers it would seem.

lostathome said...

Benson is a good guess. I was thinking Shenae Grimes could fit, bc Degrassi had a big following ("to a certain group"), but 90210 is hardly a hit. And I'm sure Dan Schneider isn't the only perv out there..

Kristin Hastings said...

Hayden Panettiere? Boyfriends are always much older. Acting since very young on Guiding Light, I think. Surrounded by adults all the time on that show. Was on Heroes which survived maybe 2 or 3 years. Tough exterior even though she's tiny.

Popnursing said...

I also read this as early-mid 20's. I like the Evan Rachel Wood or Mila Kunis -type guesses. Not at all on board with Miranda Cosgrove.

Swaysway1 said...

Emma Roberts?

happyfrancis said...

Alexis Bledel

aln said...

Kat Denning?

lostathome said...

Oh, if you want to go the Schneider route, though, how about Jessica Sozher? She was in the pics yesterday, and she made guest appearances on a couple shows he has written. Though now that I think kf if, she isn't really b list, probably not even to gossipgirl lovers.

Melinda9 said...

@ Cryscee - I just threw Kaley Cuoco's name out there because she's on a hit show but not an A and has been on other shows. Also the wording of the BI - 'for most of the world, you would be hard pressed to identify...' - could mean people outside the US would not recognize her. But you're right, everyone probably watches that show.
