Blind Item #3

B- list all television actress wannabe who thinks way too highly of herself - "Hi Mariah. I'm a huge fan of yours. I totally know what it's like to have fans come up you, but since we are both on television and both know how difficult fans can be and are in the same industry I thought it would be ok."

Mariah - "And who are you?"

Wannabe - "I'm __________________."

Mariah - "I don't know that name."

Wannabe - "I'm on ________________ (so so network show)"

Mariah - "I've never seen it. Is it on cable?"

Wannabe - "No, it's on ____. I used to be on ____________________."

Mariah - "I have obviously heard of that. Just not you. have a nice day."

The wannabe is now telling everyone how she and Mariah are great friends and share a special connection.

Haha oh, that Mariah. Diva to the core!

Rox (used to be Roxxx) said...

Love Mariah's response.

Christopher Cruz said...

They should get their nails done together and have slumber parties.

Gayeld said...

Then they could braid each other's hair. I'm giddy just thinking about it.

CanIGetaWutWut said...

Kristen Ritter from The B in blah blah?

Amber said...

The level of delusion is moving into Lohan territory. I was looking at the DM, but there are too many actresses who I have no idea what they do.

Derek Harvey said...

Lena Dunham

Lauren said...

I was thinking Lea Michele up until the end, when the wannabe says "I used to be on ____". Pretty sure Glee is Lea's first show.

jza1218 said...

I'm just going to take a wild guess with no basis:

Casey Wilson from Happy Endings (I've been reading how the cast is in love with themselves)

Used to be on Saturday Night Live (which Mariah would obviously know but have no idea who she was)

Poop Taster said...

it's obviously Darlene Cates. boom. done.

Katherine McPhee

GemTwist said...

I would love if it was Lena Dunham! She drives me maaaad.

LottaColada said...

Gahh I wanted to say Lea Michele but I can't make her fit!
Mariah and the diva 'tude just go hand in hand, LMAO. Whoever it is must've felt like an idiot.

Derek Harvey said...

oh didnt read the last line----

Anna Nonymous said...

Lea Michele ?

LottaColada said...

@anon- Omg I love that guess since she's been on American Idol and obviously has heard of the show. Katherine Mcphee FTW!

jza1218 said...

I like the McPhee guess. I'm switching to that

Karen said...

Mariah Carey has zero shits to give. Love it.

Amber said...

Okay. I like the McPhee guess. Same industry = singers. MC is currently on Am Idol, so if McPhee told her she USED to be on Am Idol, MC's response of, "I have obviously heard of that..." would make sense since she's a current host. I also get the feeling from McPhee that she's convinced she's way more important than she is.

judge, not host.

mmshukla008 said...

I also say Kat McPhee. cuz mariah would obviously recognize AI, but not an individual contestant. Love that!

DewieTheBear said...

I love Mariah's response. That is some full-on shade-sending I can get behind.

MISCH said...

Love Mimi...

SueRH said...

Bahahahahahahahaha! Love it!

noseygal48 said...

How can u not love to hate Mimi!!!

LottaColada said...

@noseygal- I prefer "hate to love" Mimi lol

ethorne said...

I just love Mariah! No hate involved.

Me said...

oh my. wonder if there is anyone that would get a "OMG, i LOVE YOU!" response from mariah?

late to the party, but until i saw her on idol this season, never believed she was a diva. everytime she uses her hand to toss her hair back its done in way thats like a "slap" in the face to the contestant.

Sherry said...

I have to say I think given this person called her out of the blue that Mariah was pretty darn nice. Who the hell was she anyway? And seriously what's the point of your call honey? Oh man I so would have done that myself and I'm not even a diva. Just get to the goddamn point..Click

I never said I wasn't a bitch though.

chopchop said...

If this is indeed Katherine McPhee, I really love this story!

katydid said...

Def Katherine McPhee I thought that two sentences in not many people have heard of Smash but everyones heard of American Idol.

yodelay said...

Oooooooo, Mariah!

I like the McPhee guess, only because I hate Smash.

Poop Taster said...

Chloe Morezits. er, Moretz. Yeah, she's a skank.

Seachica said...

I love the mcPhee guess. It makes sense of Mariah's comment about clearly having heard of the show. McPhee didn't win, so there's no reason why Mariah would know her

SashaJames2 said...

Got to love Mariah! She's a diva, but she's got the talent.

prolixe said...

Bazinga!

Every time I hear Smash, I think of the football player from Friday Night Lights. Loved him so much...

Ima Guillotine said...

Lena Dunham is on cable.

Meg said...

I don't know why, but I thought of Michelle Trachtenberg. Used to be on Buffy, most recently on Criminal Minds.

FrenchGirl said...

it's Lindsay Lohan's last dream !!!

FrenchGirl said...

not Nicki minaj

Lurky Loo said...

Was this a phone call or did the person walk over and start chatting Mariah up? This seems confusing. Granted the other person was presumptuous, but it wouldn't have hurt Mariah to be gracious. She is darned lucky to have a foothold back into the entertainment industry thinking back on her cray cray days.

curlyhairslacker said...

Ha! I hope it's McPhee. She's one that rubs me the wrong way. I just don't like her and there is no real good excuse for it!

crila16 said...

Yes. I think it's McPhee. She is an actress wannabe, she's in the same industry as Mariah, and with Mariah saying "I have Obviously heard of that show (American Idol)"...which is completely obvious because Mariah is on it.

elisacg said...

prolixe,
Haha Smash Williams. I LOVED Friday Night Lights. I was so sad when it was over. Very underrated show

noseygal48 said...

@lotta lol that's what I meant!!! I do love Mimi!!!

Kloie said...

The gossip I've heard about McPhee (from someone who knew her) is that she is a self-centered b**ch and bulimic (at least she was back then).

VIPblonde said...

I know CW isn't a real network, but I could totes see this being Annalynne McCord. Because you know nobody is watching new 90210, and I can see Mimi watching her some Nip Tuck!

Basil said...

Katherine McPhee, but she did (or does) movies no? Wasn't she in a shark movie not that long ago?

Diana G said...

Gotta love Mariah Carey! :-)

Mikey said...

Prolixe and elisacg YES! Friday Night Lights is such a great show. For those of you that haven't watched it because you think it's all about football, it's NOT. Give it a chance.

Steps off FNL soap box, slinks away...

car54 said...

I have really enjoyed Mariah so far on the AI auditions--fights and all. She is who she is and seems very comfortable in herself.

I would love if it was McPhee--she seems like someone who will always be right on the edge of being famous but not quite.

RocketQueen said...

Katherine McPhee.

All about Eve said...

I think it's McPhee too, fits perfectly.

Max Power said...

Hayden P sprung to mind.

I'm on Nashville. I used to be on Heroes etc

JSierra said...

Ohh it's like a madlib, I like this.

This is a stupid question, so bear with me. Cable refers to everything BUT the basic channels, correct? And Network is ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX? I have always been confused on these for some reason.

Renoblondee said...

McPhee does fit perfectly. I do not like her either. She's smug.

FlirtyChick74 said...

I've got to go to a meeting but I thought I'd pass this gem along: http://www.lipstickalley.com/f15/mariah-carey-queen-throwing-shade-455734. Every so often Lipstick Alley does a thing about her being the queen of throwing shade. Hilarious!!!

Mikey said...

I think everyone is right that it is Katherine McPhee, Mariah is in New York right now where Smash is filmed.

The Octocorn Network said...

What is with all the Lena Dunham hate?

prolixe said...

She's the Pioneer Woman of actors.

prolixe said...

@Flirty - the look on her face when she says, "I don't know her." Then she smiles.

Ouch!

Tuxedo Cat said...

If whoever it is had just stopped at "I'm a big fan of yours" she probably would have been all right....It was perhaps expecting instant intimacy since they are both in show business, that got on Mariah's nerves.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Naya Rivera?

Ivs said...

So guys, I think I actually have a guess this time!

As a lot of you have said, this is most DEFINITELY Katherine McPhee! I took the trouble to fill in the gaps for you, listen to this:


Hi Mariah. I'm a huge fan of yours. I totally know what it's like to have fans come up you, but since we are both on television and both know how difficult fans can be and are in the same industry I thought it would be ok.

Mariah - "And who are you?"

Wannabe - "I'm Katherine McPhee."

Mariah - "I don't know that name."

Wannabe - "I'm on Smash.

Mariah - "I've never seen it. Is it on cable?"

Wannabe - "No, it's on NBC. I used to be on American Idol"

Mariah - "I have obviously heard of that. Just not you. have a nice day."


So sure of this and also so excited to finally have a good guess haha. Yay!

Dramamonkey said...

This is totally my guess too.

I hate-watch Smash every week.

Dramamonkey said...

This is totally my guess too.

I hate-watch Smash every week.

Pisces Girl said...

Yup McPhee, tv actress wannabe

Lola said...

@J...

Network = ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX

Almost network = The CW

Cable = everything else

(I think, but would not swear, that enty has said "premium cable" or some such to refer to HBO, Cinemax, etc.)

JSierra said...

Thanks Lola, idk why I have such an issue remembering that.

Tori said...

First time commenting, and I totally agree with the McPhee guess. Off-topic, but I don't know how many of you have seen this video. It's comedic gold & shows just how self-involved Mariah is during an AI judge "sound off" segment. She refuses to face Seacrest so the camera catches her "good side" at all times.

B said...

Why do I love Mimi so? I really like her on Idol, too. Wish they would get rid of Minaj. Ugh...can't STAND her. I actually like Kat and Smash but she does seem like the best guess.

Mango said...

I saw this hilarious clip yesterday. I thought someone posted it here but maybe not. In it, Mimi subtly disses Jlo.

Mariah disses JLo

The look on Mariah's face at the end is priceless and says it all!



Unknown said...

I would guess Kat McPhee because don't they shoot Smash in Nyc so she could run into Mimi. Mimi must have known who she was because she really is sweet to her fans. She was taking her down a peg.

Cee Kay said...

What a bitch.

ulalume said...

Damn, I thought I finally got one and there's already a million guesses for her: Katherine McPhee

Raspy said...

I don't see what the so called "wanna-be" did that was so wrong, and why people think Mariah is so cute for her response. You'd all hate to work with a b*tch like this, who thinks she's better than everyone just because she was blessed with a nice unique singing voice. She didn't have anything to do with that, she was simply born with it, and she worked to market it, like we all work to market ourselves. Doesn't give us the right to act fancy. I don't get all the Mariah love, I really don't. A sh*tty attitude is a sh*tty attitude, no matter how nice the voice is behind it.
Admittedly, if the "wanna be" is making it sound like they're buds, well, that is lame.

auntliddy said...

Prolly mariah talking to herself in mirrior, lol. She a mess. Big old sloppy body hanging out all over the place. *shudder*

nudibelle said...

the QUEEN of shade

CanadianMiss said...

Oooh. Katherine Mcfee
"obviously"
love it!

gee-gee said...

Nobody does this better than Mariah. Throwing shade til it's pitch black outside.

Margaux said...

Hahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahaha

Krissie said...

The wannabe is delusional and Mariah is rude. Team no one.

Onyx Loathes Hydrangeas said...

@mango, Im late on the thread but I freaking LOVE that clip. Mariah is so freaking awesome. Biggest diva ever and I love her.

Cap said...

What about Nene Leakes? She is on The New Normal (which Mariah could easily not have heard of), but could then have referenced Glee and/or The Real Housewives of Atlanta (both of which Mariah would definitely have heard of). I love Nene, but could easily see her running away with the idea of being friends with Mariah.

FlirtyChick74 said...

@prolixe: oh, I know. It's so high school but it still makes me laugh. That chick is the worst liar ever. Hahaha.

OT: I read that she actually did have a brief relationship with Em before she dated Nick. He wasn't being delusional. Childish, yes, but not wrong. I'm thinking she was embarrassed and kept denying it.

Here's the link: LSA Spin-Off Thread: Tea On Eminem

Look for all posts in that link by incogneato. Apparently this person used to work for Em.

Gabby said...

Katharine McPhee is a great guess, but Smash is no "so-so network show." That POS is a huge, gnarly, suck-fest.
