Today's Blind Items - She Has Tried

This B list actress on a hit show is the star of the show despite the number of people on it. She has made it her mission over the past few years to build up her name recognition and brand. She has slept with men and flirted with men and women and been to a million meetings. She has hired photographers to follow her around. She has tried the famous boyfriend route to the point where she was repulsed whenever he would touch her even though he is gay. Her current boyfriend has done her no favors and even though she likes him a lot, she feels like she needs to dump him and maybe try a more famous boyfriend or some kind of scandal. No matter what she does though she cannot get roles or clothing lines or perfume lines and she finds it maddening. Everyone gets them who is a star and she screams and rails and chain smokes and pops Adderall by the handful to stay skinny. She says that she has played the game and wants her reward, but it is not coming. She knows her show is crap even though it is a hit, and she knows it will end someday and she does not want to be like every other actress on the show she knows will be out of work and waiting tables as soon as their money runs out. She has told them that to their faces. No one doubts she has the drive to succeed, but no matter how hard she tries, nothing ever works out for her.

annalynn mccord? just because i never saw the show but i know her face by paps

SugarSpiceNothingNice said...

I want to fit this for Lea Michele, but I can't think of a famous boyfriend though.

ginaG said...

Lea Michele?

camembert said...

Jenna Maroney.

SugarSpiceNothingNice said...

Ugh no I'm all wrong. She did the ad for Candies clothing line.

*karen* said...

I'm thinking Annalynn McCord, too, but I don't know who she has dated.

Cathy said...

annaylynn mccord dated kellen lutz.

Lia said...

i second Annalynne McCord, and she dated Kellan Lutz for awhile and was always throwing their relationship in front of the paps

Lia said...

oh and them dating was at the height of Twilight fever so i guess he would count as famous

Laurel said...

I'd like to say Lea Michele but she didn't have a famous boyfriend until Cory Monteith. The previous boyfriend wasn't that famous other than in Broadway circles.

I believe Annalynne is dating the guy from Prison Break who played Lincoln Burrows, for the current boyfriend who isn't doing her any favors.

supapimp said...

They split.

rhinovodka said...

Jennifer Love Hewitt.

Just kidding, I don't have a clue.

The Black Cat said...

I liked Annalynne on Nip/Tip, she's Nicollete Sheridan 2.0 IMO.

Jolene Jolene said...

On what planet is that 90210 remake a hit show? No no no.

Annalynne McCord is not the start of Nip/Tuck.

Jolene Jolene said...

*star

Jolene Jolene said...

Was thinking Emily VanCamp.

Jolene Jolene said...

Or how about Ginnifer Goodwin? She dated Chris Klein (gay?) and now her costar from Once Upon A Time.

Cara said...

I thought of Lea Michele too, but I don't think the boyfriend thing fits. I wish it was her, though, she seems like such a biiiiitch.

LottaColada said...

That's what I thought too but apparently they got back together.

Amber said...

EVC is interesting, because weren't she and B Getty the popular guess for the blind sometime in the last 2 weeks about the actress hooking up with the actor who couldn't afford to have anyone find out about them, so they had to stop, but she's in love with him?

Mango said...

I'm looking at a list of top television shows.

Zooey
Someone from Modern Family
Anna Paquin
Snooki
Lea Michele

I don't know enough about the other shows to know who the lead actresses are and I REFUSE to consider Kaley Cuoco.

Rins said...

Awesome.

ReesesPeace said...

I have no clue, but what a soulless twat!

MCV2989 said...

it's lea michelle. the clues fit especially the bit about how "every other actress will be out of work" makes me think the cast is genre specific (ie. GLEE)

Amber said...

If it is Lea Michele, who I agree is a very convincing candidate here...GOD. Does she have even a single pleasant quality?!

Meg said...

Kat Dennings / Two Broke Girls?

Rachel said...

Lea is the new face of L'Oreal... doubt it's her.

Silly Girl said...

The chick from 90210. She thought she'd be huge because the first one made household names out of every single cast member. Her boyfriend was the Prison Break guy.
Sad for her. She's pretty, and an OK actress. Maybe with a good role, she'd have been better.

T. E. Cuz said...

not ginnifer goodwin, she does movies.

lea was in new years eve, and her co-star dianna agron was in a few films.

zooey has had film roles and endorsed siri.

the clue i think is interesting is that she is "the star of the show despite the number of people on it" --- what show has a big cast?

or is it one of the "two broke girls"?

Jolene Jolene said...

If it's Lea Michelle, who was the famous boyfriend who repulsed her even though he was gay? The current bf is Corey Monteith. They're still together, aren't they? I just saw an interview with her talking about him.

@T. E. Cruz--This doesn't say TV only, just that she is on a hit show and the star. So this could be an actress on a show who also does movies.

dragon said...

Chris Klien in gay?since when.

SusanB said...

@Mango - Kaley Cuoco occurred to me too but she's got some stuff going on. I just saw her last week in some TV movie about the Drew Peterson case. I like her, I think she's got a future in case anything happens to BBT.

Sadie said...

I was thinking Ellen Pompeo - Greys Anyone?

NomNom83 said...

I don't know who this is, but I'm pretty sure it's not Lea Michele -- it doesn't say that the REAL reason none of these things have come to her is b/c she is such a horrible person to work with. Besides, I think she will always have Broadway opportunities.

crila16 said...

All I kept seeing was Annalyn McCord as I read the BV. She's desperate and is super duper skinny.

Maybe someone should tell her, the reason she's not making it big is because she's not that good of an actress, and even though she's cute...she's not beautiful and doesn't have that IT quality.

Sugar said...

Whoever "accidentally" flashes their giblets to the world is probably our answer.

Mitchellaneous said...

I don't know that Lea Michele would risk her voice by chain smoking. That part, and the fact that she has endorsements, makes her not fit for me.

T. E. Cuz said...

@jolene, you are correct. i was following the clue that said she could not get roles, as well as that nothing works out for her.

seems like if this individual could even score a small role in a cheesy/cheap film, she would be getting at least some traction. hence why i feel like she does not have any film roles.

Cassidy said...

As much as id hate this, what about Jennifer Morrison? She's definitely the star, she's had some boyfriends who are known (Jesse Spencer, Sebastian Stan)

"maddening" possible nod to the Mad Hatter? Aka Sebastian's character on het show.

DBZee said...

I don't think it's Kaley Cuoco - wasn't she the one liked for the blind about recently being pregnant and losing the baby? :( She's not super-skinny at all, her star boyfriend would be Johnny Galecki, who is definitely not gay.

Emily Van Camp scares me!

Robert said...

Am I an asshole for finding this situation oddly gratifying? I similarly enjoy Madonna's frustration at being unable to be taken seriously as a filmmaker even though she really really really wants to be.
Maybe I'm just jealous.

Stephanie said...

I could see this being AnnaLynn McCord, and I don't know her through anything other than gossip sites. My impression of her has always been that she's "normal girl" pretty with overinflated expectations, so that matches the blind, and that's not marketable so I can see why she wouldn't be landing promotion gigs or many roles. It's the same wall Ashley Greene keeps running into.

Dr_Holly_Goodhead said...

Jolene, I was thinking Ginnifer Goodwin on this too - the pieces fit - she is on a hit show even though it is crap, she has tried having a famous boyfriend, and no matter how many movies or shows she does she never quite makes it to A List...

Lisa (not original) said...

Overexposure is not Annalynn McCord's best strategy. It reeks of desperation.

SweetDee said...

Emily VanCamp and Kaley Cuoco are TWINS! You can only like one of them, the other is evil.

People need to stop making every blind about Lea Michele or AnnaLynne McCrackie.

I vote Ginnifer Goodwin. I've heard her name forever, seen her in a couple of things, but know nothing of her. Also, with her dating history that I just googled, she fits.

AKM said...

"I don't think it's Kaley Cuoco - wasn't she the one liked for the blind about recently being pregnant and losing the baby? :( She's not super-skinny at all, her star boyfriend would be Johnny Galecki, who is definitely not gay."

I thought Enty did a reveal about an actress who got drunk at a party and stunned everyone when she outed her ex-BF, and it was Kaley?

(FWIW, Galecki is on my List and he pings my gaydar not one iota, so I dunno.)

susan Deavitt said...

Zoey Deschenal

mrjack said...

AnnaLynn McCord doesn't smoke (according to an interview I read and I can't find one picture of her doing so except SmokeStiks - which aren't anything like cigarettes)

Lea M would never be stupid enough to smoke a single cigarette, let alone chain-smoke.

Ginnifer Goodwin smokes but I love her (have ever since Mona Lisa Smile) and don't wanna believe this is her.

Jennifer Morrison Maybe but she's not that skinny and she doesn't seem to give a toss about her appearance, she's more of a tomboy. This sounds like someone who wants to trade on their beauty.

What about Nina Dobrev? Hit show, smoker, famous bf although I don't know who she dated before.

susan Deavitt said...

Zoey Deschanel

story said...

Rachel Bilson. Gay boyfriend: Hayden Christensen. Hit show: Hart of Dixie. How she branded herself: she came out with a line of dishware this past year.

JSierra said...

It is absolutely not Lea Michele. Not only is she the new face of Loreal, she also has tons and tons of Candies adverts out. She also does not smoke. Her voice is her money maker and she knows that.

Not sure how everyone flips their shit over the Tv/movie thing but totally disregards other parts of the blind. Like the part where it says this lady can't get any endorsement deals.

JSierra said...

Rachel Bilson endorses Shoe Mint, Sunglass Hut, and that ice cream.

Zooey endorses Pantene, Rimmel, and hello Apple. Not to mention all those cotton commercials.

Ginnifer has a really goofy looking Noxema endorsement.

Sunny said...

This is absolutely not Kaley Cuoco. She has been working regularly since she was a kid, and goes out of her way to stay out of trouble. She has no interest in being Lindsay 2.0, so she surrounds herself with her family, close friends and her beloved dogs. She just want to go to work and live a normal life. How do I know? We have a mutual friend in San Diego, and we bonded over our love for CdaN. Yup, she reads this site :)

Kathleen said...

My first thought was Annalynn McCord with Kellan Lutz as the gay boyfriend, but her show isn't a hit, is it?

katiedean said...

Definitely not Ginnifer Goodwin. She was on Big Love for 5 years, hug hit.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Olivia Munn? Tries to make the world believe she is a nerdy hot chick, wrote books about it etc. She speaks Japanese and talks about her partly Asian heritage all the time. She tries to be nerdy anime lovers wet dream, visiting Comicon etc etc.
Chris Pine for the gay ex, the one she send those nasty pics to ( do not look them up). Current bf is Joel Kinnaman,Swedish actor, not that famous/succesful right now.
She screwed directors to get parts; which was leaked to the media. She is playing a big fame game.

I know she is on Newsroom right now, but I have noooo clue if the show is succesful/has actors that will have to wait tables after it ends (aka; are they terrible actors who will never find a job again?). Also no idea if she is the star of the show...

Marco said...

Sofia Vergara. Seems to describe her personality, and my guess is a lot of her relationships have been under the radar b/c she just wasn't famous at the time. The kicker, her endorsements: not only is she doing Pepsi commercials, kind of beneath her, she's also designing a clothing line... for K-Mart soccer moms. Not exactly hip, expensive brands there; can see why she'd want more.

Fairmaiden327 said...

First one I thought of too.

annee said...

I have no idea and haven't read all the comments, but "Sofia Vergara" kept running through my head the whole time reading this one.

alabrava said...

Beth Behrs. 2 Broke girls is crap, and a hit, and she does have some actual real comedic chops, but the writing on that show is terrible.

plrtz glrb said...

I think the blonde one from glee, Dianna argon? Dated that Alex pettifer psycho. probably thinks she's hot shit.

Kloie said...

Not Ginnifer Goodwin. Chris Klein is not gay - at least he wasn't considered to be by his friend whom I met a few years back (when he was engaged to Katie Holmes).

Mooshki said...

90210 has been one of the biggest hits on the CW, although it is fading now.

Portland Foodie said...

I hope it's not her but Kerry Washington? Scandal in the blind might be hint?

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

Not Sofia Vergara. She does Cover Girl ads -- landing a major cosmetics deal is the holy grail, especially for someone who started as a model a decade or two ago.

Then again, perfume deals are slightly above a "just cosmetics" deal... on those ads you see the A-list: Brad Pitt, Natalie Portman, Keira Knightley, Penelope Cruz. So maybe Vergara could work. This blind read to me more like someone that doesn't stand out as much, but I could be way off.

uberbaldy said...

It can't be Kaley Cuoco, Zooey Deschnal, Kat Dennings, or Beth Behrs(sp?). The blind says, "star of the show despite the number of people on it" that would insinuate that the show was not meant to feature any single individual at it's conception. "The New Girl" and "2 Broke Girls" make Kat, Beth, and Zooey the star of the show by definition of the shows' premise and it's very title. Similarly, Kaley was always a key role in "TBBT" and, while she is definitely a more central role than others on the show, the star of that show would be Jim Parsons.

I'm thinking it's Lea. "Glee" begin as completely ensemble cast with no one any more of a feature then others but that has changed. Also, once the actor's character graduated they were supposed to be gone from the show since the show focused on this high school glee club. That has changed and Lea is still featured even through her character moved to NYC. Don't know about the other clues but the clues about the show, itself, seem to fit.

anderguy said...

I'd like to throw "2 Broke Girls" out there too, but a wilder guess: Jennifer Coolidge. While supporting, she is a "star" name of the show despite the number (2) of people on it, def. B-List.

I don't know anything about her dating life but she has been around for at least some 15 years. Who says the endorsements have to be big? Maybe like Sofia, she'd like to design something for K-Mart.
