Blind Item #4

What do you do if you are a married executive who got busted having sex with your nanny and now your nanny is threatening to sue you for sexual harassment? You get her a role that has turned her from a nobody that absolutely no one had ever heard of to a solid B lister on a hit show almost overnight.

Arnold isn't an executive is he? And what's her name isn't quite photogenic enough.....

Beth Byers

who is Beth Byers?

Beth Behrs trivia from Imdb.com:
A classically trained singer.

Played competitive soccer and traveled all over the East Coast in tournaments for 9 years.

She is a graduate of the UCLA School of Film and Television.

Former nanny.

Maddie said...

onboard with the Beth Behrs/2 Broke Girls guess. Her IMDB mentions that she was a former nanny and she barely had any roles before getting a starring role.

Agree with Beth Behrs guess. She was the first to pop in my mind while reading the blind.

KellyLynn said...

I agree with the Beth Behrs guess.

Maximus said...

Unpopular opinion coming: We chicks have enough of a problem with men taking legitimate acts of rape/sexual harassment seriously. Whenever I hear a story like this, it enrages me. ENRAGES ME. Decisions you make with your vagina are not to be justified by saying "sexual harassment"!

Kari said...

I agree with the Beth Behrs guess.

phoenix said...

Man, I can't believe how good some of you are. I struggle with 2 famous people. Forget about it when an unknown executive is thrown into the mix, lol

LottaColada said...

@chaparra- haha I love the subtle drop on the nanny tidbit.

It really worked out for the executive that his show turned out to be a hit. Kat Dennings boobs rule.

Laura said...

Beth Behrs played competitive soccer? My opinion of her just went up exponentially!

LottaColada said...

I just remembered that 2 Broke Girls is a product of Michael Patrick King.... Isn't he gay?

Agent**It said...

Show creators...Michael Patrick King and comedienne Whitney Cumming.

Amber said...

@Maximus - in this instance (and a lot of others) I agree with you. Same applies to girls who cry rape, because they cheated on their BF/husband and they think it'll get them out of trouble. Makes it a lot harder for the women who really are victims of these things. The same applies to men, because I'm sure there are far many more cases than are publicized or talked about out of pride.

Sherry said...

Agreed with AMBER and Maximus.

noseygal48 said...

I think it's Beth too. I suck at these but she was the first face to pop up in my head.

Onyx Loathes Hydrangeas said...

I was just wondering the other day where the hell she came from wiki'd her found the nanny thing and was like hmm bet there's more to that story. Thanks enty.

MaeMae said...

I like the Beth Behrs guess but it's definitely not Michael Patrick King who got her on the show. Perhaps its was some other exec who works within CBS and pulled some strings though.

figgy said...

I agree that this sucks to minimize true harrassment this way.

But she turned it into a role? With my luck, if I ever tried something like this, the guy would just have me whacked or something.

All about Eve said...

I also agree with Maximus and Amber.

I think the British nanny/actress on Californication last season may be based on this, yes?

dragon said...

I get excited when I read Kat Dennings Boobs. The only reason I comment

Agent**It said...

Amber,Maximus ditto.

Diane said...

Did a quick Google search on Beth Behrs ... we have a winner & a ho!

Beth Behrs dishes about playing soccer, being a nanny and her splurge with her 1st 2 Broke Girls paycheck. 2 Broke Girls premieres next Monday at 9/8c on ...

Silly Girl said...

This Beth chick is a great guess! It's a breakout role for her, but not her first role. Good guessing, everyone!

This is what happens when guys can't keep it in their pants at work. It's a dangerous game. Companies, even govt, pays out all day long on stuff like this. Most times the guy's career is unscathed.

ljsmed said...

Not unpopular with me at all, I think it's an excellent point! I totally agree.

Jilly said...

Just for fun, do you think Beth Behrs was Julie Chen's nanny???

Me said...

i don't think this is the same thing. there is so much sleeping w/ people to get parts, this is just a sightly different route. and it doesn't say she blackmailed him. maybe she was heartbroken and he felt bad and did it as a good bye gift. hollywood is full of people who won't deny themselves sexually.

LottaColada said...

Lol @dragon you should have Kat in your avi

Lucas said...

Kat Dennings' boobs are a national treasure.

Pookie said...

i'd hate this to be beth behrs...i like her. comes across very sweet and genuine in person. drop dead gorgeous too. and isn't she also classically trained vocally? i'd be so bummed if she pulled a stunt like this.

and add me to the list of kat danning boob admirers, i'm mostly just jealous. and they're natural too, right?

HA!
Plus 1 to Kat Denning's boobs. God Bless America, and all our glorious nation's glorious natural cans.

Sarah said...

I'll third this. Want to have equal rights, equal pay, respect? Don't use your p to get ahead!

lazyday603 said...

If Kat Dennings and Hayley Atwell ever made a film together they would have to bring back Cinemascope. The normal screen wouldn't be big enough to fit all 4 boobs.

Mango said...

I've seen 2 Broke Girls (and most episodes make me cringe -- the supporting cast is HORRIBLE) and Beth Behrs is REALLY GOOD!

While everyone was raving about Kat Dennings, who kept smirking at her own jokes in season one, Beth Behrs held up her end admirably; she's a great comedic actress.

I don't think this is about her.

Count Jerkula said...

I wouldn't even know who Kat Dennings was if it wasn't for that cell phone hacker posting pics of her juggs. I'm not a tit guy, but give her 2 thumbs up for luscious, natural fun bags.

B. Profane said...

Hopefully this is just another opportunistic fake BI, because Behrs really is the best fit for it. But c'mon, UCLA Film School grad, ass like that, she doesn't need to resort to the casting couch to get her break. No, fake BI.

That being said, the poor girl--and the rest of a quite good cast--is stuck on perhaps the most horrorshow of sitcoms ever. The writing on that show is unbelievably bad. I can't help but cue up an episode now and then--for the obvious reason(s)--but the writing is so revolting I almost can't stomach it.

Cee Kay said...

Gotta agree with Profane. 2 Broke Girls is really horrible, which gives me the sads cuz Garrett Morris is on it!

B. Profane said...

The worst of it is watching Garrett deliver those stunningly bad lines--and trying to make the best of them. If the show-runners had an ounce of sense they'd put Garrett in charge of the writing. He is an experienced, talented playwright! Likely not as sharp a writer as he used to be, but light-years better than the hacks they have now.
