Blind Item #1 - Easy

What former B list actress who had designs on being A list and is now on the mess list says she was bullied in school. The truth is that when she was in school, it was her the other kids used to run from because she was the biggest bully around. Don't do drugs kids because it makes your mind see things that were never there.

Hohan...

recently I read an article where she claimed to be bullied, so idk why this is even a blind.

You don't need drugs to see things that were never there. Most controlling or narcissistic people do the same thing sober.

Christina said...

I hate that bullying is the new buzz word, like bullying only started 5 years ago. I haven't met anyone who wasn't been bullied or treated badly by someone once in their life.

Unknown said...

Yeah, I saw this article too. That she was bullied because of being an actress and her "home situation." What a trainwreck.

I hate that everyone on the X Factor was bullied. OMG SOMEONE CALLED YOU FOUR EYES WAHHHHHH


Try receiving death threats because you're small and awkward.

Bluevelvet said...

I'm tired of famous people talking how bad they had in school and how everyone was just jealous of them. Lindsay your almost 30 grow up.

ButterKwup said...

All child stars think they got bullied when they went to 'regular' school. All it really means is the other kids didn't fall all over them and kiss their asses, which is what they're used to.

Roman Holiday said...

Oh people need to get over the bulling shit!!! If your in first grade and the 200lb kid is picking on you because your a pipsqeak then, yes you are being bullied!! otherwise grow a set of fucking balls and stand up for yourself - this country is turning into a bunch of pussyfooting asswipes!!!!

M said...

One of the people that bullied me in high school is now my best friend. And, the others are my friends on FB.

Get over it.

lzahart said...

I think the bullying thing is more complicated than the sorts of stuff LL is referring to here- and more pervasive in days where the bullying literally follows kids home via their various social media platforms. When there are kids killing themselves because all of the girls in their grade are posting what a slut or whore they are just because they don't like them, then that is something that does deserve attention.

However, being called names (I always got Pencil Legs or Skeletor or Giraffe) when you're a kid is something that has happened since the dawn of time and I think is actually character building and is not that big a deal. And personally looking back F all those people who called me that, it wasn't my fault I was really tall and skinny as a kid, and actually it's awesome as an adult, so seriously who cares?

So while I think certain types of bullying do need to be closely monitored, others... like this... get over it and don't use it as an excuse for your failures in life. But can you seriously expect anything but excuses from this one?? Bitch please.

I didn't realize Lohan went to school.

lol Sarah

AKM said...

I got a Demi Lovato vibe from this. Doesn't she have a HUGE anti-bullying platform now? I don't recall LL talking about bullying as much as Demi does.

hothotheat said...

Xtina was bullied pretty bad in school to the point where when she changed schools there was never any mention that she sang (apparently she was bullied for that reason). The family car had its tires slashed and other stuff. I believe it happens, don't think some people get over it and that doesn't make them wusses.

That said, Lohan is clearly using the current buzzword of the day to generate sympathy. She will never change and will never give up trying to get attention.

NernersHuman said...

I've heard that Demi Lovato cries bullying all the time but was a huge bully herself.

Jemtastic said...

Isn't this Demi Lovato?

kelly said...

Demi L. beat the crap out of somebody recently. Seriously -- what is the difference between her and Chris Brown?

MISCH said...

LINDSAY.......who else ? She has become the answer yo every question.

blink2487 said...

100% lindsay. I grew up a few towns over from her and heard she has been a diva bitch since her Parent Trap days.

M said...

I don't think it's Demi simply because he only said "actress."

Bluevelvet said...

Lindsay is ao desperate she is trying to take attention away from a high school girl. Next thing you know she will be talking about some other issue and making it about herself, she is like a real life Jena from 30 Rock.

Cornbread said...

There's such a big difference between being harassed and just going through your teenage years. Kids call each other names, get over it. Try being a ginger Floridian...do you know how many Casper the Ghost jokes stupid kids can make? But I'm not crying about it now. Like another poster said, it's character building. BFD.

Whiles this does reek of Lilo...would we really says she's B list? Seriously, Lifetime movies should automatically knock you to C.

PS said...

Izahart - sister! I was Toothpicks. I used to cry that I wasn't fuller. I have a very young sounding voice (I DO NOT Baby talk and LOATHE it). I even had a teacher tell me - in graduate school - my voice was too ... feminine! A WOMAN! If only I could swap or lower my voice and grow an ass and boobs naturally - I would. But, me, my young sound and skinny ankles have done just fine and would never agree we were bullied - just survived adolence. My point is, what these kids go through, who are really bullied - repeatedly, broadly, really devalued and quashed of any joy, it's so horrendous and cruel and unspeakable and I have no right to put the same word to my experience, nor would dare. Sure, kids were cruel to me, but on single occasions, here and there. I can't imagine what that's like, I can only imagine the breadth of my compassion and support for the unfair and inhumane treatment they suffer. The internet is the best and worst invention of our time. I wish there was more control, mostly self-control.

Ari said...

it isn't Lindsay, bitch is Z-List not B-List

Peter Choi said...

Someone who's on the verge of being an A list? I can think of only one and I'd rather not talk about it.

All about Eve said...

Lol!!! I was shocked too

All about Eve said...

It says FORMER B list not currently B list so this is Lohan. Demi has issues but she's not on the news every other day like LILO who's queen of the mess list I think

ms snarky said...

I'm so done with reading anything about this D list wannabe. LL's time is over. I say let's be done with her.

Brown Lori said...

christina went to high school somewhere in pennsylvania. i heard they called her the blowjob queen.

jp said...

I love how Michael K said that Hohan must've thought "Mean Girls" was her real life and therefore remembered being bullied.

That being said, I think Hohan and White Oprah double teamed to bully her classmates.

Wen said...

Sarah - She had to get her drugs somewhere.

Char said...

Demi Lovato has never been a B list actress and probably never will be. She's lucky to have to job she has and should probably try very hard to keep it.

This is Lindsay. She was probably B list for a brief moment in time, and definitely thought she was going to be A list.

Lioness70 said...

I thought Demi Lovato first, but y'all are right, it's Blohan.

I was bullied in grade school - have to admit, I was the class clown, and when I stopped, some kids decided to keep reminding me of what I had been.

Some gym teacher also made fun of me because I was a terrible athlete. Guy would get fired today, but in the 70s, it was "character building".

BFD. I lived through it. I'm here, aren't I? I have a nice life and great family. That's all that matters, not shit that happened 30 years ago.

Silly Girl said...

I love how Lindsay makes every 'issue' her own. According to her, she's lived quite the full, albeit pathetic, life.

Internet: Long hair is bad for you.
Lindsay: I had long hair when I was younger, that's why I get picked on by the media!

Internet: Tuesdays are the most productive day of the week.
Lindsay: I've had all Tuesdays taken away from me! They were divided among all these other successful actresses!

Internet: Drugs are good for you!
Lindsay: That's not what I heard! I heard they were bad for you, that's why I've never done drugs!!

HAHAHHAHHAHHA. I crack myself up.

Gabby said...

For all of you saying "BFD" to bullying, I think you're missing the point. Especially calling victims "pussyfooting asswipes" are you kidding me?! There's a big difference between some occasional name-calling and being TORTURED day in and day out by your peers. Most people are called names throughout their lives, but with the anonymity and accessibility of the internet, bullying has become much easier and more intense. Imagine if you were told to kill yourself on a daily basis, or rumors were spread around so much that every single person in your school talked shit about you and you had ZERO friends. It's much harder to weather the onslaught of attacks when you have no-one on your side. A bunch of you making the ridiculous comments brushing bullying aside seem to be older. Perhaps you don't realize that bullying has gotten MUCH worse since you've been in school but if you have children I'd watch out and maybe not be so easy to tell them to "suck it up." Encourage your children to share with you what's going on, because simply telling them they're imagining it, or overreacting, etc. is not going to make them want to tell you anything. And believe me, coming from someone who was bullied, kids don't tell their parents the full extent of their torture anyways.
PLEASE think about the consequences of your actions, because if you're posting such hateful things on a gossip website, I can't imagine how you must be treating people in real life.

AKM said...

Well-said, Gabby. VERY well-said.

hothotheat said...

Thank you Gabby, well said. I was thinking the same thing as I was reading some of the comments. Some people don't "get over it" and see suicide as the way out.

Turkish Taffy said...

When I was in college, my name and the word "ugly" were painted on the wall between the elevators on the floor of my dormitory. I was on scholarship at a private school, and had glasses and an overbite. First thing I saw every morning, usually in the company of my classmates.

Thanks for telling me to suck it up, y'all. Wish you had been there with me to offer that sterling advice.

Turkish Taffy said...

not "on the floor". On MY floor of THE dormitory.

Call me yndy... said...

Thank you Gabby! Couldn't have said it better.

The "I survived it, so you should suck it up too" rationale is why young doctors work sleep deprived, insane hours, why priests can't marry (that one is fun, look it up, it wasn't originally a requirement), and why hazing is perpetuated in fraternities, sororities, and 'secret' societies.

If you had survived a murder attempt or being raped would you tell others to suck it up because 'it could've been worse?' I suppose there are some who do. But they're part of the problem, not part of the solution.

AKM said...

Wow, TT. It would be nice to think that by age 18 or older, college folks wouldn't be acting like cruel ten-year-olds, wouldn't it? I am so sorry that that happened to you. I was intensely bullied -- and suicidal -- as a child and a preteen -- and yes, suicidal as a child and a preteen -- but thankfully all of that ended by high school.

For the most part, sadly. Based on events and convos on this site today, it's clear that adults need to remember to have composure and compassion as well. Myself included, I'll even admit.

Sis Cesspool said...

@ Maximus: It's not a blind. It's a way to get you to click.

Who ever writes this shit probably saw that article and manufactured a fake blind based on that article.

So, let's say I see an article over on the Daily Mail about Actress X doing blah blah. They then manufacture a blind using that information. How can no one see this?

Let the hate begin!

tyson said...

Have you guys not noticed lately that a lot of the "blind" items on here are articles from other tabloids from the same or previous day that use the names of the subjects? My guess is that the author/authors of this site will use them in the future as "reveals".

Between that and the crashing this site causes and the intrusive ads, this site is going downhill fast

lzahart said...

@PS I think we may be further bizarrely related one of the things I got mocked about was how low and gravelly my voice is... a teacher once told me I should be a phone sex operator. No lie.

@Gabby/@TT I hope you didn't misconstrue what either I or PS were trying to say which is that there is a massive difference btwn name calling that kids will always do no matter what and the kind of almost institutionalized bullying that drives people to suicide, especially in the age of the internet. TT I am so sorry for what happened to you, I don't know if I would have been strong enough to deal with that in my college years (or now even frankly if someone wrote that on the floor of my office today it would be pretty tough). There is a WORLD of difference btwn that and the occaisional name called.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

I this blind said 'singer' I would have guesses Leann Rimes. Bitch constantly whines about being bullied but doesn't understand the concept of it I believe. Besides, she is the biggest bully herself.

Lioness70 said...

Sorry, I honestly didn't mean to come off as flip about this issue.

I didn't have anyone in my corner except the "weird kids". Luckily, I had a loving, supportive home to go home to.

I had a rough go of it in school, but not anywhere near some of these other stories. The persistent bullies weren't relentless. I also developed a very sharp tongue, so after a few rounds with me, most of them gave up.

Besides the Internet, I wonder what changed between 30 years ago and now to make kids that much more cruel.

I'm really sorry for what some of you were put through.

Selock said...

<3 you, Ed Rendell!

Kimmi said...

Freshmen year of college I knew a couple kids who went to high school with Lohan. She was a queen bee and a huge bitch (according to them).

zombiecrush said...

EVERYONE WAS BULLIED. EVEN THE BULLIES. PERIOD.

But it's good that something is finally being done about this shit in a systemic way, since social media has made it absolutely out of control.

zombiecrush said...

After reading the comments, some of you need to get some sensitivity training. Some bullies are extreme and I've experienced it as well. But TT... that is heartbreaking. I wish you didn't have to go through that and I wish that there was more "awareness" in our time of growing up. That is just... horrid. Those people will get their karma, if they haven't already. hugs.

Lelaina Pierce said...

Doesn't every celebrity claim to have been a nerd and/or been bullied at some point? I always figure it's so they can have their "But look at me now!" moment(s).
