Today's Blind Items - He Wanted Their Boyfriends

This A list television actor who has been a flop whenever he has chosen to try and do movies has had some bad luck on tv lately but will always be an A because of his past multiple hits. Back in the day he liked the world to think he was a Playboy. He had women all over Los Angeles and would stop at nothing to wine them and dine them, although he admits it usually only took a whole bunch of coke and some shopping to make them want to date him. A huge ego did not leave them much room to emerge from his shadow and he preferred them to look trashy and cling to him for support like they were wanting a drink of water in the desert. The trashier and needier the better. Basically a Courtney Stodden type with a drug habit they could not afford without him. The thing is he never really had sex with these women. Oh sure, every once in awhile he would give them 30 seconds of sex, but his thing was meeting their exes and trying to hit on them. It turns out that trashy looking women with drug habits had ex-boyfriends who were also not averse to spending time with someone who could provide them access to drugs even if they are the same sex. Our actor stayed the longest with women who had exes who would go along with him. Trashy girlfriend in public, their ex-boyfriends at his place.

Kelsey Grammar? Twisted.

All about Eve said...

It does fit Kelsey Grammer

Topper Madison said...

Kelsey Grammer was never considered a playboy, though...

FSP said...

I like the KG guess, but what movie flops has he had?

supapimp said...

I knew it was fraiser after the first sentence.

ButterKwup said...

That's what I was thinking Topper. But other than that, it fits him to a tee.

Vera L- said...

Didn't he make "McHale's Navy" or something equally awful?

msgirl said...

Nope, never considered a playboy.

*karen* said...

Kelsey Grammar has a lot of kids for someone who rarely has sex with women.

Lurky Loo said...

Periscope Down. Can't remember any of his other movies

supapimp said...

KG frequents the playboy mansion.

spacecowboy78 said...

@ Karen - I was just typing that.

@ Lurky Loo, actually it was Down Periscope. It contained a fart scene that I found hilarious in high school.

Mama Abroad said...

The playboy bit I thought was a reference back to Enty's post today on Camille worrying he'd invite her old Playboy friends to their jointly owned home and then it wouldn't sell.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

KG is a good guess. I was reading this as Matthew Perry, but I totally see it being Kelsey Grammar.

*karen* said...

I was also reading it as Matthew Perry, but he doesn't quite fit, either (and he's on TV right now so he hasn't flopped again yet).

So, dated trashy Courtney Stodden type? Who has Tara Reid dated?

Sarah said...

Camille said they didn't have sex for a decade

Kraymond19 said...

Actually, young'uns... Kelsey Grammer WAS a playboy back in the day. Tons of coke busts, DUI's in very expensive cars & strippers on his arm. Not always starlets, but strippers. HOT MESS.

He makes sense to me for this one! Or HEF!

Anneliesse said...

Matthew Perry. If his new show is a flop, this is totally him.

A RESIDENT said...

David Caruso

Alicia said...

I'm on the Matthew perry train!

Basil said...

This must be Kelsey, but has he really had bad luck on TV lately? Isn't Boss doing fairly well?

mybrothehero said...

Chevy Chase?

NaNa LaLa said...

Kelsey Grammer. He just recently got bashed by Kendra whoever for taking his baby to the playboy mansion. He's a complete skeeve!

Jemtastic said...

@Kraymond19: your comment made me scream with laughter!

Just 'ewww' at the thought of Kelsey back in the day: strippers hanging off him while his mullet sticks to the nape of his neck due to the coke sweats.

Erin said...

Scott Baio, ftw.

tracynator said...

Camille Grammer had her two children via surrogate, don't forget. Allegedly she has IBS or something.

Char said...

Matthew Perry's new show is a modest hit, its the highest rated new comedy after The New Normal. So actually he's having some very good luck with TV at the moment so this isn't him.

ms snarky said...

I like the Kelsey guess, but there's always Drew Carey for dating strippers.

wasabibird said...

Totally Kelsey Grammer - there's a clue in this earlier CDAN post today: "Kelsey Grammer is out of a job but that is not going to stop him from living in a $16M house in Beverly Hills."

alabrava said...

Boss has done well critically but Starz canned it last week.

MadLyb said...

Kelsey Grammar was the only name that popped in my head. I think he was considered a playboy in his "Cheers" days.

SweetDee said...

The "bad luck on TV lately" probably refers to RHOBH. Super unlucky getting caught.

Staple611 said...

I actually read that as he considers himself a playboy, and not necessarily that the world agreed.

In any case, I was thinking Matt Perry (multiple hits didn't fit, though), but now I think Kelsey is a much better fit.

tara17 said...

Agree with KG. He chooses such trashy women, I figured he was overcompensating because he's not into women in the first place.

ana belle said...

I'm leaning more towards Drew Carey for this.

Connie151 said...

Kelsey is the asshole who recently took his infant daughter to a party at the Playboy Mansion. Plus, "Boss" just got the axe.

rejectedcarebear said...

Kelsey was in X3 which was a huge flop in my book.

Snapdragon said...

The movies are what have flopped, not necessarily the TV shows he's in.

Probably KG.

Looziana Magnolia said...

Hasn't Matthew Perry been dating Lizzy Caplan for a few years now? Since 2006, I think.

Just never pictured him as a playboy/skanky girl type. I don't think this is him.

portlandjewel said...

Everything you guys are saying about Kelsey Grammer fits but wouldn't we all know by now if he was having sex with Camille's ex's? She hates him and that would be a hard secret to keep!

Topper Madison said...

Not Drew Carey. He's not gay. And he wasn't a coke fiend to my knowledge. I only ever saw him drinking and smoking cigars. I think his issues were more related to depression than to drug usage. Also, I remember him dating rather smart women way back when...nah. This ain't him.

sharon said...

JEREMY piven!

JW said...

I thought it was Chevy Chase and then deleted my comment when I realized that the Vacation movies were successes. However, now he is in pictures so I'm going to guess that again.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

I read this as Charlie Sheen, however, think his movies have been fairly succesful..
Would be hilarious though xD

MalibuBarbie said...

KG does seem to fit...but, I just can't imagine Camille letting something like that slide - she's not one for holding back...

Mary said...

I gotta go with Kelsey on this one. Years ago, pre-Camille, he was dating one of our company's "spokespersons" and she was about as trashy as they come. This is totally Frasier.

ButterKwup said...

If Kelsey had Camille sign some sort of Non-disclosure statement in exchange for a payout (ala Cruise) , this could be him. He has always given me the wiggins and I've never gotten the appeal.

BlindItemMe said...

i read this as david spade buuuut i suck at these. Kelsey is a way better guess

Mooshki said...

What Kraymond19 said. I still remember him hanging out and doing coke with tons of cheap women before he hooked up with Camille.

Cee Kay said...

@Basil "Boss" has been cancelled, and Kelsey's last couple of sitcoms never went anywhere either. Yep, this is definitely him.

Unknown said...

There was an episode of cribs I think and for some reason foo fighters were at Kelsey Grammer's house and he made out with the blonde guitarist on Camera- full tongue..and he had a shit eating grin and said OH MY..but swore he never had done that...

krk67 said...

Guitarist is Pat Smear. He's out and fabulous -- even if he did lock lips with gross Grammer.

mybrothehero said...

And "Community" (which I've never watched, despite loving Joel McHale) had a huge hubbaloo about him being a drama queen on set. I honestly think even if it was meant for someone else, it would still apply to him. A bank? A talk show?? I was pretty young when he was famous but that is a HUGE friggin' ego.

And I actually like Kelsey. Of course I know none of these people personally.

mybrothehero said...

And pair the recent drama queen actions with the fact my 4 y/o LOVES Ghostbusters and so I've also played the video for the Ghostbusters song that starred all the 80s people. Blast from the past!!

Soooo KG all the way on this one.

A-List TV (2 of the most popular/best reviewed shows of all time):

Cheers
Frasier

Movie flops (although they're obviously not all KG vehicles, he's just in some of them):

-I Don't Know How She Does It (2011)
-Swing Vote (2008)
-An American Carol (2008)
-X3 (2006) (Made its $210 mil production budget back domestically...not sure if that budget # includes press/marketing...also not sure how much more than budget a movie needs domestically to turn a profit...made double its budget back counting overseas, but not sure how much of the foreign $$ the studio makes)
-15 Minutes (2001)
-Down Periscope (1996)

Bad Luck On TV Lately (All high profile network KG vehicles):

-Boss (cancelled during/after 2nd season)
-Hank (cancelled during/after 1 season)
-Back To You (cancelled during/after 1 season)

He's had seventy bajillion marriages, all failed. He keeps leaving wives for younger women. There have been rumors about his dressing in drag and preferring men for years. He very well may've had nondisclosure agreements with all of his women. Yeah, the real housewife chick trashes him all the time, but she may be legally prevented from going too deep/dirty with the secrets. Think of all the "bent" celebs or celebs with skeletons in their closets. How much do you really hear about them? There have to be a million stories you never hear (these people live very large and think they can do whatever they want). Anytime a negative story comes out, they have their PR pitbulls like Marty Singer come out at the accuser and hit hard, cutting them off at the knees. Same goes for Enty with MV. He signed something, he can't reveal it outright.

Remember the blind item from a few months ago about a TV star sleeping with his producer. His male producer. Then KG was in the photos.

HalleGoLightly said...

As for wining/dining and coke, KG has had very public struggles with booze/coke sobriety in the past.

Oceana said...

It was canceled

Discobitch said...

Isn't KG producing a few shows? I always loved Medium

Why would kg hide being gay though with 3 of the dudes from frasier out of the closet?

Silly Girl said...

3 dudes from Frasier out of the closet?!?! WHO?!

figgy said...

@Silly Girl, both the actors who play Niles and the Dad are out of the closet as being gay.

Silly Girl said...

Didn't know about John Mahoney! Interesting.... Thanks, @figgy!

Hayley said...

His kids with Camille came from a surrogate, though...no sex involved.
