Blind Item #2

This B+ list television actress on one of the biggest television shows on television has a serious prescription drug problem. The good news is that she knows not to drink while taking them because she doesn't want to end up dead. The problem is she can't stop taking way too many of them. They have started to really age her and bloat her and she is rarely coherent after about 4pm everyday, but does not want to go to rehab because she is so scared of getting replaced on the show. She says it is the show that got her hooked because of the demanding schedule.

Someone from Mad Men, or the American Psyco...

Brooke said...

Show...American Psyco show...

SecondCityKid said...

Sarah Paulson?
Her face looks bloated...Beautiful woman, but her face looks terrible lately

sparklynan said...

You mean American Horror Story? Sarah has what looks like an overworked face with fillers and botox...but what do I know about prescription bloat?

MBk said...

: ( I hope it's not Sarah - I do think she's had too many fillers. She was awesome in Down With Love and I love her AHS character.

Barton Fink said...

The show made her do it. Clearly, not "working her program" and trying to stay clean. Addicts make the best excuses.

shazzer said...

Kaley Cuoco from Big Bang Theory? She's looked a little "off" this season. And it's possible this could be an issue that started when she broke her leg a year or so ago?

Jason said...

Is AHS really one of the biggest shows on television? I mean, I love it, but I didn't think it was THAT major.

I was thinking something more along the lines of Revolution or some other ensemble show with huge ratings. Walking Dead, maybe? Is anyone on that show B+?

FSP said...

Mariska Hargitay

tracynator said...

Second Sarah Paulson. She looks bloated lately but thought it could be injectables. But last show she looked old, though,too.

I had previously thought that as well, just fillers, botox...She's 36 - I mean, shes young. Her role became more prominent in American Horror Story: Asylum from her previous role in American Horror Story. Her face is visibly different, and hangs a bit. I like her, I hope I'm wrong. =)

nancer said...

i continue to realize how out of it i must be. sarah paulson is B+? i don't even know who she is. same with kaley cuoco.

Melinda9 said...

But is the AHS schedule demanding? The filming is probably done.

Renoblondee said...

I'm with you @nancer. Plus I don't think these shows are one of the biggest on TV at all. Wouldn't that be more like Modern Family or something?

Ian said...

American Horror Story is a serial, so it shoots rather quickly and is done. Go back to a network show...

Cee Kay said...

I don't know, although I don't really think it's Kaley. She just doesn't look much different to me. On a side note, though, I always smirk a little whenever someone comes forward and "admits" to prescription drug abuse. I mean, I believe it in this case because it is a blind and of course Rx drugs can be dangerous, but have you ever noticed how EVERYONE in Hwood goes to rehab for "prescription drug addiction" but NOBODY ever seems to take the illegal ones?

Rachel said...

anyone on glee? crazy scheduling

Redheat said...

My first thought was Kelly, Big Bang Theory just had a record breaking viewership, which would make them one of the biggest shows in TV right now. I hope it's not, but it fits.

madeinbrzil said...

I think both Kaley and Sara are great guesses.
Other big shows currently on are
-Person of interest
-Dacing with the stars (could totally see this one as demanding)
-two and a half men
-criminal minds
-blue bloods
-modern family

Dija Star said...

is "the good" news code for "The Good Wife?" I love Julianna Margulies, really hope its not her

Catherine said...

second @FSP Marishka all the way.

msgirl said...

Don't think it's Mariska - they wouldn't replace her, she's the star, they let her go for some time and she'd be welcome back with open arms.

Maddie said...

Kaley Couco was my first thought as well. Big Bang Theory is one of the top rated shows on TV.

My roommate and I were watching recently and actually talking about how she must've gained some weight and how it all went to her face. But drug bloat makes more sense.

Frufra said...

I'm mulling all these guesses over, and I don't think Kaley could be correct. There are pictures of her at last night's Lakers game in the press today. As in, after 4 pm. And Ent states in the BI that this actress is not coherent most days after 4 pm. The BI implies that this person goes home and crashes hard in the afternoons.

Maddie said...

Also, Big Bang has successfully brought on other female regulars with Mayim Bialik and the actress who plays Bernadette. It'd be easier to replace her since she's no longer the only female. Plus, if 2 1/2 Men can go on without Charlie Sheen, BBT can go on without Kaley.

I don't think it's Sarah Paulson. She doesn't look great, but her character is in some traumatizing situations and is supposed to look like crap.

SusanB said...

I thought of Kaley too, but I think she's too integral to the show to be easily replaced.

Terrier Pines said...

I would think Glee too, as it is so demanding. Asian chick #1 looks different this year, bloated does describe it.

Skippy Handlemann said...

Band Camp Girl from "How I Met Your Mother." Allison Hanigan.

xoApril said...

I don't think there are any shows currently on that are considered the "biggest" shows on television. I hear this and I think of Friends, Cheers, Seinfeld. I think it's a nod to The BIG Bang Theory. Guess is for Kaley. I noticed her appearance change lately.

Err said...

I second Kaley from Big Bang. She looks bloated in the face seriously this season. And I just don't like her. They need to replace her with someone who can actually act.

Yellow Brick Blog said...

I don't think it's Kaley, sitcoms don't have demanding schedules, it takes like 5 hours to shoot an episode. The only show I can think of with a known demanding schedule is glee, I don't know who would be considered B+ on that show though.

Twerp said...

What about someone from Glee? I haven't watched it lately, but I know it has a grueling schedule.

sparklynan said...

This would NEVER! be Alyson Hanigan!

I've always thought The Good Wife lady had way toooo much Botox too. There is no way Sarah Paulson is 36--she's got to be in her forties.

I"m liking Glee for the show, but who knows? Maybe one of those csi shows?

katie said...

Watching Raising Hope last night, Martha Plimton's face looks fuller. She's still teeny tiny as far as her body though.

Cornbread said...

Wasn't there a rumor about Kaley using cocaine to drop some weight a few years back, and she ended up getting hooked? Maybe it was a Ted C. blind...I can't remember, I don't watch BBT but I know people love that show.

NOT Mariska...she still looks great, aging the way you'd expect. And I thought her contract was up in 2013 anyway? Both her and Meloni had done interviews a few years ago about their future retirements from SVU; his last year, hers two years after that.

OT...I loved Meloni on True Blood, and I wish he'd gotten more screen time.

nothistime said...

Meredith Grey.

Meredith Grey.

jax said...

Shazzer got it.

Kaley's face is totally different. My bff and I texted each other during the season premier "her face!!"

chopchop said...

Can we talk about how totally awesome American Horror Story is this season?? The cast is simply amazing. I don't think I could pick a favorite ... I'm loving the evolution of Zachary Quinto's character (trying to avoid spoiling for anyone not caught up) and I think Evan Peters is fantastic. And Lily Rabe! She's so over-the-top awesome.

Cornbread said...

chopchop, Quinto is my FAVE this season. That was a twist I didn't see coming. He's so creepy, but at the same time I'm so sympathetic towards him. Way to play with my emotions, AHS.

shazzer said...

Thanks Jax! Woo! I got one :)

SecondCityKid said...

Quinto is amazing. My best friend was commenting how he had the crappiest part in American Horror Story, and how Asylum is really utilizing his acting skills. I know he is of a different persuasion but, is it sick I find him so damn attractive? Swoon ;)

Char said...

Alyson Hannigan looks heavier in the episodes currently airing on HIMYM because she had JUST had a baby when they shot those. If you look at her in pap pictures from recent weeks she is back to looking like her normal skinny self. I don't think this is her, she's generally known as being one of the "normal" ones in Hollywood.

Twinkle Toes said...

Kaley falling asleep on set:

She looks a lot different than when she was on a few years prior:

Silly Girl said...

Big Bang Theory chick, Kaley whatever. Totally her. No question.

HalleGoLightly said...

If it's Kaley, maybe she's numbing the pain of not finding much outside of the show. Obviously she's done very well by the show. But trying to step out of that and meeting a brick wall must be painful.

She was the popular guess for a blind about a douche director who was going to screw her...make her jump through hoops for a role...make her lose weight...yet would still never consider her because she wasn't hot enough (Bay, probably...maybe Ratner).

Pugz Addams said...

Neil Patrick Harris for the win!

Kiki K said...

Claire danes

Claire danes

Lucas said...

What about that Pauley chick from NCIS? That show is a big hit and I just read she has a really high Q score which would make her B, right? Although until I saw her on The Talk yesterday I had no idea who she is.

dragon said...

i got with pugz lol

Shit You Can't Buy said...

For some reason I read this as Jessica Lange. Something about her seems off. I so hope it isn't her:O

Shit You Can't Buy said...

@Lucas: I don't think it is Pauley Perette. She looks like she is in her twenties and she is in her fourties :O (yeah i was shocked too). Also don't think they would replace her, she is like the main point of recognition for the show, like Barney is for How I Met Your Mother, etc etc

nessa said...

That's what i'm thinkin too. I'm the only person i know that watches AHS

Elissa said...

I think Kaley Cuoco is a great guess! She's definitely been looking "thicker", and the broken leg would have necessitated some sort of prescription pain medication.
The blind says just that this actress is "scared" that she'll be replaced, not that the show would actually do that. The Big Bang Theory was built on the Penny character and her interactions with the four geeks, she's too integral to the show to replace; I hope she gets the help she needs.

anon said...

AHS is not one of the BIGGEST shows on TV!

Swanky said...

Claire Danes is pregnant that's why her face might look bloated.

astrogirl said...

Elissa, Charlie Sheen thought he was irreplaceable, same boss, look what happened to him.

Discobitch said...

Betty White






Sorry had to be done xD

Dolly72 said...

I second the Ellen Pompeo guess. Her face looks haggard and puffy, and I have never understood why she was considered beautiful?? But, she def looks a lot rougher than she did a couple years ago.

Elissa said...

@astrogirl, true, but it's not really the same thing, is it? Surely Chuck Lorre would have vastly different feelings toward someone that became addicted to the pain medication prescribed for a pretty bad injury than he had for someone constantly making the news for his addictions, violence, hookers, and bad-mouthing the boss, right?

Then again, nothing can be assumed when it comes to Hollyweird.

fouxdafafa said...

I agree with FSP that it's Mariska Hargitay. I think she's been looking a little puffy in the face and in the body (NOT that there's anything wrong with that. She's still hot as hell to me).

I would say Law and Order:SVU is one of the biggest shows on tv, even if not the most popular at the moment. Plus, I know she's had health problems in the past.

Sarah Paulson just looks ragged since they are making her look like that for her character's situation on AHS. She looks fine in the flashback scenes with make-up on and pretty outfits.

astrogirl said...

Elissa you would hope so, they are very different. I can't help but be sceptical, women always seem to get 'shortchanged' when it comes to what is fair and what is reality.

Silly Girl said...

Mariska is leaving next season, it's not her. She's not afraid to be replaced.

misspeg86 said...

Funny you guys mention Kaley. Her name didn't pop up for me straight away but it makes sense. She was on DM with Ashton at a bball game and they mentioned Ashton was having a beer but Kaley didn't have anything to drink. Actually says it in the article. I hope it isn't her though. I like her!

Jules said...

Kaley Cuoco. She looks like hell here, and the story also mentions her "hit show", Big Bang Theory.
