Blind Item #2

This couple's fights are getting way worse. The C list mainly movie actress called her A list always movie actor although he got his start in television husband a word he hates. A word many people in the population hate. Most would cal it a slur. He had enough and slapped her right in the face so hard that she had to cancel an appearance on a show because of her swollen lip.

N word right, so who could that be?

libby said...

I thought it was 'fag' or 'faggot' for the slur. Adds a closet/beard element to the blind.

Who cancelled lately?

CamColty said...

Will and jada

JBM said...

Will and Jada

Karen D.C. said...

Or the F word. Is there an A-lister that fits who might be gay or gay-appearing?

SKOR said...

I'm wondering if "A list always movie actor although he got his start in television" is a guide to go by? Does "always movies" then mean "never did television"?
The slur could be the "F" word.

Vicki Cupper said...

Either N word or F word. Can't imagine anything else that "many people in the population hate".

Angela said...

I'm pretty sure that Sacha Baron Cohen isn't very happy to have tried the same thing as Robert Downey Jr in Tropic Thunder and stayed in blackface for a part.

Mal said...

Travolta & Preston... The "f" word.

portlandjewel said...

Maybe entward has discovered that "all movies" makes everyone a little confused.

LottaColada said...

I think people take the "always movies" too literal. It's hard to find actors who didn't start out with small roles on TV. Enty is probably being more specific since it always causes so much confusion in the comments.

Mal said...

Travolta & Preston... The "f" word.

Mari said...

Well there's the K word, the S word, the P word... I could go on forever, which is why This strikes me as a more difficult blind than it first appears!

Patty said...

If the N word, I would guess an interracial couple.

If the F word, someone with gay rumors attched to him.

Got nothing.

Regarding the labels...did anyone else see over the weekend that Ent clarified that he refers to Xtina as former A list singer?

Karen D.C. said...

Will and Jada or John and Kelly sound right to me.

Staple611 said...

I'd hoped (is that bad?) that it was Will and Jada, but I think "C list mainly movie actress" fits Kelly Preston way better than Jada.

*karen* said...

"Most would call it a slur." I think EVERYONE would call the N word a slur. I bet it was the F word.

I'll say Will and Jada.

Cathy said...

Definitely Preston and Travolta. Jada isn't mainly movies, since her biggest thing lately was Hawthorne.

Mal said...

Is Jada mainly movies? Isn't she the star of some nurse show?

Onyx Loathes Hydrangeas said...

Hmmm maybe the word was gypsy? It seems to be starting fights these days.

Lol, I'm thinking the will jada guess sounds good especially because we know he will slap a person.

Landy said...

I was at the AMPAS Governors Awards this past Saturday night and Will was there, but Jada was not...

Charles said...

That item needs some hyphens. First time through reading it I thought that the word was "husband".

*karen*, perfectly said! I wouldn't have even TYPED the n-word.

katsm0711 said...

I don't know... Have u guys ever seen Jada's biceps? She looks like a fighter to me with good reflexes and would have retaliated leaving some kind of mark on Will too.

kelly said...




I'm on the "F" train.

Crystal Mccormack said...

@*Karen*- The world SHOULD be how you say. Where everyone DOES think it's a "slur" word. But unfortunately, it's just not that way.
I used to get in fights regularly with my ex father in law who used the word regularly. I had to ban him from seeing my daughter because he refused to stop using the word in front of my small daughter.
People are sick. :(

*karen* said...

@Libby, I would never type it, either! It's like that whole Chevy Chase meltdown on the Community set. Instead of saying, "Are you going to have my character call [the black characters] the N-word now because he's becoming even more ridiculously racist?" (VERY loosely paraphrased) he went and used the actual word. WHY DO PEOPLE DO THIS?

j-co said...

Travolta isn't an all movie actor, he was on Welcome Back Kotter in the 70's.

*karen* said...

@Crystal, sorry about your Father in Law being like that. My older brother is a racist, but he knows that the N word is a slur. He uses it anyway and when I have kids he will have to make the same choice as your FIL--because he won't get to pass that on to my babies.

KAP said...

**WHY DO PEOPLE DO THIS? **

Because it is just a word. Until some crybaby starts whining that his feelings were hurt and all of a sudden everyone has to stop using a word because some people have decided they didn't like it. The victim mentality in this country makes me ill.

spacecowboy78 said...

@ J-co, the blind specifically states all movie now, but started off in TV. I do think it's Travolta and Preston. Jada Pinkett is C list, but she is not mainly movie, she just had the Hawthorne show on TNT.

EmEyeKay said...

Agree with @Vicki, but I'm guessing N.

Teenaged boys call each other the F word, but most of the population hates the N word.

Cecilia00 said...

Didn't Enty hint not so long ago that Preston was whining to Kirstie Alley a ton about Travola's cheating?

And she just waded through a ton of allegations recently.

I see this as Travolta/Preston.

I can see her snapping before Jada actually.

*karen* said...

@KAP, I agree with you in theory. But word meanings change over time and adapt to changes in the world around us. Words that weren't offensive become so and vice versa.

Just like one wouldn't yell "Fire!" in a crowded theater ("What? They're just WORDS"), I'd hope that people would refrain from using language to DELIBERATELY set people off.

There's a difference between being overly sensitive and appropriately sensitive. Maybe it's not my problem if someone gets upset over something I say, but I'm also not going to intentionally use language that could hurt them.

timebob said...

she must of called him a gypsy

Aoife said...

My first thought was the "F" word and first couple that came to mind was Will and Jada. Preston and Travolta isn't a bad guess either.

figgy said...

I doubt it's John Travolta and Kelly Preston. He doesn't seem like the violent type to me, at all. And I'm sure they've had their arrangement well in place from the start.

Elizabeth said...

I'm on the Travolta F train. Because it says "most" would call it a slur. The N world is universally considered a slur. I think Travolta is reaching the point where he just wants to come out because the position he is in now means he can't win either way, everyone knows too much. The more Preston tries to force him to pretend, the more resentful he could become.

mannyv said...

In Hollywood, that word might be "Republican"

Carmelean Karma said...

Didn't Preston cancel her appearance on the doctors? Didn't help though about the outing of the "Doctor" she was going to have on as a criminal. She's been forcing him to stay in this marriage with blackmail, and I could see him snapping and slapping her if she called him the f word. N word would be definitely a slur, not maybe. Travolta and Preston, two miserable beards bearding for each other.

Renoblondee said...

Travolta and Preston fit this blind perfectly.

Janet296 said...

Travolta, Hanks, and WIll Smith have all been on TV show. ENTY said A list always movies. It can't be them.

Kathleen said...

SKOR - my guess is that Enty grew tired of people endlessly debating whether or not "all movie actor/acress" means they have never in the history of their careers done movies and decided to spare everyone the speculation this time by just specifying. I'm still pretty sure that when he says "all movie," he means all movie now but not necessarily twenty years ago (like, for instance, george clooney or leo dicaprio, both all movie but had their starts in television a million years ago).

Darkmyst said...

@Janet

Enty said: "...A list always movie actor although he got his start in television..."

Unknown said...

@KAP

I think I want to hug you! One sane person in this thread ;)
Being from Europe, I find it so hard to believe how oppressed you guys are by political correctness. Chevy Chase said "THE FULL WORD" (OMG1 STOP THE PRESSES! or don't... because you're not supposed to type it :D ) and now it's such a big thing? I remember a few years ago the same happened to Tori Amos - a guy in an interview asked her if she knew what the name NWA stood for an she did;) Oh, all those self-righteous haters commenting on it, wow...

Having said that, I love reading this page and find you guys the nicest bunch on any gosspi site. You just need to chill a bit sometimes :)
Go tu youtube and check out Tim Minchin's "Prejudice" :) Love <3

Taracu said...

Why are people still harping about the "always movies" part even after Enty posted the disclaimer "GotTheir Start on TV"?!?!? Could be Travolta or Will.

Mal said...

Jada isn't mostly movie.

VeeBee said...

Didn't all the guesses start on TV, per the clue? Travolta was on Kotter, Will was on Fresh Prince and even Hanks was on Bosom Buddies. So if not N-word or F-word what about something more universal? Like "racist", "hypocrite" or "p*ssy"? Any of those might really piss someone off especially if the wife had been needling him constantly.

BlindItemMe said...

Ooh @mal I like that guess! Kelly dies fit for C list

Sarah said...

Isn't Jada also a musician?

Sweetie said...

Sascha Baron Cohen got started on TV in the Ali G show in the UK. Maybe Isla called him a rude religious slur after getting sick of all his in character foolery, she has said lately it wears her out..... But are they A and C list respectively? There are plenty of nasty words out there besides the obvious 2, unfortunately.

WBotW said...

@ KAP and Unknown
Agree with you both

JW said...

I thought the N word. It's not always considered to be a slur apparently; I hear it all the time in rap music and as a greeting between black men. Is there an interracial couple that fits?

Although I suppose it could be a black couple. She may have used it with a very nasty tone that left no doubt that it was being said in the bad way.

Sunny said...

@Carmelean Karma
I'm trying to keep track of you! Did you change your name again to Karma Chameleon, or is that just a coincidence?

littlejenny said...

I'm thinking the "K" word... there are so many powerful and successful Jewish men in Hollywood. K gets my vote! but as for who, I got nothin.

libby said...

I would say out loud what NWA stands for. I just wouldn't compose my own sentence using that word in full. The feeling it would give,coming from the whitest chick on the planet, would obscure my point.



I like what *karen* said (i usually do), it's more about being a nice person, and thinking before you speak. It's not some genderless PC commune of no sarcasm or something. geez.

Making fun of being nice IS totes hip, though, so have at me.

__-__=__ said...

Can't be Will and Jada. Look how short she is compared to him. And her arms are buff! A shot to the nutsack would be crippling!!

cricket said...

Kap,Unkown and WBotW I'm with the three of you. This PC crap has gotten so totally out of hand it's insane. There used to be a thing called freedom of speech in this country. People are so thin skinned these days. When I was in grade school and high school kids got bullied all the time with out killing themselves. Everytime a celeb said something in an interview they didn't have to issue an apology because someone got their feelings hurt. We have turned into a nation of whiny babies.

Paper trail said...

I don't say the word but it is just a word. I can buy a gun at Walmart and that is more threatening than any word.

Why do I get the feeling Kap and Cricket would be the first to go hot-boiling ballistic if called any sort of name, even a mild one? In my personal experience, the hot-headed people I know who go volcanic over any mild disagreement or disapproval are also the ones who rant about the "Political Correctness" issue.

Profetissan said...

You americans.. Buy guns at Wallmart. Sick. Glad I', european.

starstattoo said...

My suspicion, and it's really only that, is that if Enty were discussing Will Smith, there would be some mention of his music career, or at least a phraseology that would allow for music, maybe something like "this now all-movie actor who was first famous for something else" or the like.

signwithclass said...

To KAP and his/her supporters, please don't pass your naive opinions to young children. Some words, particularly the N word has ALWAYS been offensive, and anyone with the "get over it" mentality need a cultural diversity training, frankly. Words are indeed powerful. Where you been? Geez.

The Black Cat said...

I want to say CZJ & Michael Douglas but not sure if CZJ would be a C list? The slur could be something age related.
