Today's Blind Items - Kindness

This celebrity is B- list. A list name recognition though. She has been controversial in the past with some of her statements but she is truly someone who gives a lot of her time for free to whoever wants it. Her big thing is literacy programs and she tries to go to schools every week and read to students. She goes to after school programs and reads to kids and then works on actually teaching them how to read. She is happy to do homework with 100 kids a day if it was needed. She loves helping kids and puts in about 15-20 hours every week doing it despite the fact that she already works 40-50 hours a week on her own projects. I'm guessing she is not reading her own books though.

I have no idea why I want to say Ann Coulter for this and I hate the chick but if it is her WOW.

Chelsea Handler

eris hilton said...

Jenny McCarthy?

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Jessica Alba? Got in a spot of trouble two years ago when she dissed the screenwriters of some of her lame movies.

Oh crap, she never wrote any books.

Sarah Silverman?

Merlin D. Bear said...

As scared as I am to say this, I applaud their efforts.

Snooki

Renoblondee said...

Jenny McCarthy

nichole said...

Katherine Heigl?

Amber said...

Like the Jenny McCarthy guess. Controversy being her theories on Autism. Also, JM is on the DM twice today. I think Chelsea Handler is on there, though, too.

B626 said...

Yup jenny mccarthy sounds about right

Christopher Cruz said...

Oooh, I love the Chelsea guess. I love her, so I hope it's true.

All about Eve said...

I think Jenny McCarthy sounds right

Mitchellaneous said...

Does Jenny McCarthy have 50 hours a week of her own projects?

Chelsea Handler is busy and has inappropriate books, but all this volunteering wouldn't leave much time for vodka..

greenmountaingal said...

I thought of Tori Spelling, but she's not known for any controversial statements.

I also thought of Madonna, but she's A list through and through.

moussemaker said...

Jenny McCarthy?

Mr.Cannon said...

What about Suzanne Somers? She's been faced with controversy with her comments on hormone therapy and cancer. A-List name recognition. Writes a million books about everything and anything.

The only thing that makes me think I'm wrong is that Enty calls her a celebrity and not an actress... but I don't remember the last time I saw her in anything?

iknow.itknow said...

I got it. Jamie Lee Curtis. author of several kids books, adoptive mom and very much a B-

Pink_Palace said...

Whoopi? Not sure of her books, but I can see her doing this or something similar.

ermagerd said...

But if Jamie Lee Curtis wrote kids books, wouldn't it be appropriate to read them to the kids? This blind suggests otherwise : )

Jessica said...

I like the Sarah Silverman guess. She has some app out that she is promoting, something to do with "let me babysit your kids".

A RESIDENT said...

Did Natalie maines ever write a book?

DBZee said...

I don't think it's Jenny McCarthy - she's been critical of public schools in the past, and most private schools don't have after-school literacy or homework programs that need volunteers.

Who is the young actress who writes YA novels?

Whoever it is - thank you!

News said...

has to be blossom, she writes many books that are very boring, guess she doesn't reed them

Alice Tate said...

I like Jenny McCarthy for this. I don't get why something like this is a blind though.

Agent**It said...

Lauren Conrad.

Worstcompanytoworkfor said...

Tori Spelling

rachel said...

I was thinking Duff or Conrad

Get a Life said...

I like the Chelsea Handler guess. Sounds like something she would want to keep on the down-low so it doesn't ruin her vodka image. lol I think if it were Duff or Conrad they would have it out in the press to promote themselves.

Frufra said...

I've got a gut feeling it's Silverman. Don't know why - finely honed gossip instincts, maybe?

anonymous said...

@frufra I know nada about Silverman and I thought her too because she is kinda known as controversial and has a book highly inappropriate for kids

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Patricia Heaton? She has been very controversial with her anti anticonception opinions, and eventhough I dislike her because of this, she can't be all that bad I believe.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Oh nevermind, Heaton never wrote books..

Basil said...

I have no clue who this is, but whomever it is is doing good work. Literacy is very important for kids.

Its just U said...

Katie Price A.K.A. Jordan.
She 'writes' loads of books that kids (or anybody else really) should never read.
As much as I can't stomach the woman it actually does sound like something she would do.

ms snarky said...

Jenny McCarthy, with the controversial statements being her statements on autism, and she's authored several books.

Good for her.

Teresa said...

I thought maybe Ashley Judd but I think her only authorship is an autobiography?

Jurmanji said...

Kirstie Alley. She opened a literacy center.

Basil said...

@It'sJust U, I actually thought of Katie Price for this too. She's "written" lot's of books, and with her kid being special needs, I could easily see her giving time to other kids as well. But no one over here really knows who she is. And as far as I know, she is still based in England.

nudibelle said...

the "im guessing shes not reading her own books" as she has no young aged children anymore maybe?

MadLyb said...

Jenny McCarthy.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

@nudibelle: think its more about her books being inappropiate for kids..

Jaiden_S said...

I think it's Lauren Conrad, too.

Illuminated Leaf said...

This definitely sounds like Sarah Silverman. She meets the controversial criteria, she is basically a comedian, not an actress who also has A recognition. Her books would NOT be appropriate to read to children. Got to be her.

MrWolf said...

This almost has to be Lauren Conrad or Jenny McCarthy for the authoring.

I don't think LC has A list name recognition or controversial statements, so I'm going Jenny Mac with her crazy autism theories.

Hmax17 said...

I instantly thought of Jane Fonda! Plenty of controversy in her past and everyone knows who she is despite not being in much lately. And she writes books!

Sherry said...

I can see Jenny McCarthy doing this. Controversial statements having to do with autism. I just can't believe Ann Coulter would do anything nice so that rules her out.

Squeezebox said...

The original Fergie - Sarah Ferguson, former Duchess of York (or Pork, as she was sometimes called). She wrote a few books starring Budgie the Helicopter.

Dolly Parton. She has a foundation that sends books to kids. Huge literacy initiative.

rashida jones

anderguy said...

I'm thinking this is about an author. I'll go with Jackie Collins, def. A-list name, at this point prob. more B-list reputation.

Also very unlikely she'd be reading her books to schoolchildren.

Kelsey said...

I immediately thought Chelsea Handler when I saw this.

Kate and Gemma said...

My first thought was Chelsea Handler, but after reading all of the comments,

..No, I still think it's Chelsea Handler.

L said...

I am on the Jordan train too..

ethorne said...

I don't think this is someone with their own children if they're spending 55-70 hours a week on work projects & tutoring.
