Blind Item #4

This A list mostly movie actress was overheard talking to one of her friends about the husband of the actress. It turns out that he could not handle their recent baby and it has caused him to have a meltdown. He has moved out of their place and wants nothing to do with the child and is pretending the whole thing never happened.

Drew Barrymore?

MISCH said...

How awful...

Redd said...

whomever he may be, what a prince! sure hope it's not Drew, tho.

Basil said...

Hope this is just temperorary for the guy.

crila16 said...

Does Drew do TV? I thought she was an ALL movie actress, not mostly.

jennifer hansen said...

it says their most recent baby so to me that sounds like they have more than one kid, drew only has one kid

jennifer hansen said...

whatever maybe i'm just reading to much into it

Tuxedo Cat said...

That's really unusual behaviour for a man. I wonder if he has reason to believe it isn't his?

Vera L- said...

Ugh. Way to man up!

Sorry, is the baby healthy? I can see being overwhelmed by an unhealthy newborn...

Unknown said...

I hope it's not Anna Faris and Chris Pratt :|

hunter said...

doesn't say MOST recent baby, just says recent baby

PugsterMom said...

It just says recent baby. Not most recent baby.

Meanie Reese said...

It siys 'their recent baby', not most recent baby...who has had a baby recently?

It's sad but I sure wouldn't want this person around a child if he can't handle it.

Meanie Reese said...

Jinx Pugster! :)

phoenix said...

A List married actress and recent baby narrows the field a lot. Reese Witherspoon and Drew Barrymore are the only two possibilities I can find. The rest either aren't A List, aren't married, or this isn't their first child.

Very strange behavior. There must be more to this story?

Maybe the baby has colic and cries non stop? I remember my mother-in-law saying with their first child( who had a brain stem tumour over 50 YRS ago and died at age 2) used to scream non-stop(just like our second child did as well, lucky us)and her husband couldn't handle the screaming and had to get out of the house every time the baby screamed as his nerves couldn't take it, so maybe it's something like that?It IS very maddening!

Angela said...

You don't watch Maury at all in guessing.

Miss S. said...

What about Maggie Gyllenhal?

Colic can be a nightmare. There are few things that can scream like a baby, and after a few hours it can get to you. Hour after hour, day after day. When the baby sleeps you walk around it as if it's a bomb waiting to go off.

I can see how a celeb could freak out. With a colicky baby, it's totally not about you.

Its just U said...

Uma Thurman?

tealily said...

Maggie and Peter have a couple kids though, I think.

tealily said...

Plus, I love her (Maggie), but she's not A-list.

mybrothehero said...

When my son was born after previous multiple miscarriages, my exhusband, literally, lost his mind. I dealt with allresponsibilities with the baby and work and unfortunately fell deeper into the abyss, to the point serious physical abuse began occuring when I was pregnant, though it escalated after birth. That, combined with his schizophrenia (which I was never told about and that he did have, though non- symptomatic for many years) plus the abusiveness of his family, I was outta there with my 11 month old.

There is such thing and men having post partum depression what I believe is an area that needs seriously addressed. I have been in a custody battle over 4 years with 2 psychological evaluations but unfortunately the court doesnt take that into account despite the recommendations from 3 psychologists that he have supervised visistation. Since ex hubby's atty is assistant DA in my county, she's favored, so it's been an excruciating road, especially because you can nefer get that time back.

mybrothehero said...

My ex fell into an abyss, not me. Lol

Its just U said...

You have my respect and admiration. Been down a similar road (minus the Schizophrenia). Its hard but you gotta stay focused on the goal. Protect the child and do what's best. Play the long game.
Stay strong.

Count Jerkula said...

I wss numbed to the crying by years of blocking out yapping.

phoenix said...

Uma Thurman is a good guess, but she's not married.

Its just U said...

Except for the A list part I would guess Megan Fox and BAG. He seems like the type to get jealous of his own baby. A 'meltdown' would warrant attention.

Jazzy said...

I was gonna say Reese, but she's only done movies.

Jolene Jolene said...

Drew and Anna haven't done TV at all, have they? Or I guess Drew did that Grey Gardens TV movie. Does that count?

The only TV I know of for Reese is a few guest star appearances on Friends years ago and I think she was on that After Chelsea show once...I feel like that would be ALL movies all the time.

Felicia said...

It's always funny to me how people who seriously are considering become parents don't spend extended hours beforehand with babies, so as to nip these things in the bud.

Babies are not for everyone. Nor are they necessary on a planet with 7 billion people headed to 9 billion in a decade or two. Childfree people always get dirty looks and nasty comments but we took at the whole "spending $200,000 after taxes per child" thing and the "dealing with a nonstop shitting and screaming monster for at least two years, more if the kid is disabled, possibly for the rest of YOUR life if the kid is severely autistic" facts and said...

FUCK THAT. :)

JSierra said...

Felicia ITA, leave the baby making for those who are meant to raise children and there should be absolutely nothing wrong with no wanting to have a child. It's like racecar driving. Everyone wants to get on the track and go fast for a bit, but at the end of the day there were only certain people that were really born for it. Just because you weren't meant to be a driver doesn't mean that there is anything wrong with you, and that you shouldn't be able to sit on the sidelines and watch and lend your support.

Reese

KendraWM said...

My friends daughter had colic it was unbelievable, if we are out and she hears an infant cry her whole demeanor changes. We say she has PTSD from it.

KendraWM said...

And as my OB used to remind me, more marriages end in the 1st year of a new baby than any other time.

So yeah there are alot of people who can't handle a new baby.

SueRH said...

I'm with you, Felicia! :)

Silly Girl said...

This totally screamed Selma Blair to me. The blind could be up to a year or two old, even. I'm not sure if her (ex?) husband is still involved or what's going on, but I read it as someone like that. Drew, Reese, I really don't think it's them. With Reese, she already has kids, which he's been exposed to. Regardless of the fact they are not babies now, he knows the responsibility level required. Don't think it's him. Who has a 1-3 yr old where the husband/dad isn't around anymore?

Nellie said...

Megan actually said he was jealous of the baby

Nellie said...

Excellent analogy.

prolixe said...

@Felicia - there really is no limit to the amount of control people believe they should have over your reproductive system.

@mybrother - what a story! Best of luck to you in the battle!

Nellie said...

I honestly believe it's possible. My baby didbt have colic thank god- but there were stretches where he was just inconsolable.
I felt terrorized. I was scared of him in a way. The screaming was just so stressful and made me so upset and sad that he was hurting or sad

BrainyAngel said...

@mybrothehero, I wish your ex would fall into an abyss! Seriously, tho...sorry to hear all that. Custody battles w/ unstable people can turn completely surreal. My friend had a similar situation. Her ex didn't even particularly want custody...just wanted to be angry and spiteful to her and "punish" her for leaving. Took all her $$ to get out of that marriage and get custody. Bleech.

LC said...

doesnt BAG already have a kid with vanessa marcil? I feel like that could take him out of the running.

dragon said...

I dont think so. He is always seen with him and Megan foxx.

My 1st had horrible colic and was all around an awful baby. I had post-partum but didn't realize it,just chalked it up to being a new mom without much sleep. I had no plans of EVER getting pregnant again.I was miserable but loved my little one too. The mere thought put us both into a complete panic attack.

She was just so unhappy and demanding neither of us could imagine two! Yet,when she was 9 months I conceived baby#2. At first I was just floored,in denial. Then after a couple days when the preggy hormones started kicking in it was all, "oh well,I got this". Anxiety stopped,I was elated.

Poor hubby,not so much. He was a mess lol. The female body under hormonal control is weird lol.

Men do not hormonally bond with their infant. They have to learn to love it. To want to do so. Plenty don't but stick around because it is expected until they simply can't deal.

scratchy kitty said...

Aw boo hoo! :-( The poor husband is overwhelmed by a baby? At least he and his dumb ass wife whos putting up with the husbands tantrum got to have a child! If either or both of them dont want it then give it to some one who does! And by the way not all "childfree" (hate that stupid term) are childless by choice. I wanted to have kids but couldnt thanks to a shitty thyroid and an autoimmune disease. Yet I get judged and yelled at and called a lesbo and a man hater and barren and selfish by breeders for something that is not my fault! So shut up with your whining Felicia--at least you had a "choice!"

scratchy kitty said...

Oh ok--men just dont bond hormonally. Ok, so its perfectly normal then for them to abandon their kids. Thanks for the Darwinian biology report.

deree said...

No it is not normal. It just takes more work for them to bond. It is crappy. Some can't handle it and do run. They shouldn't have had kids or needed to try harder. I'm not condoning it.

Silly Girl said...

@scratchy, wow. Glad you're commenting today. It would have been quiet, calm and overall a very friendly place today without you.

Wil said...

Just throwing this out here .. Drew is on TV .. she does "The Essentials" with Robert Osborne on TCM weekly. I hope it is not her.

So .. I instead am going to mark this down to one of EL's make believe blinds.

g.strathmore said...

I think men do bond hormonally with their babies if they actually spend time holding them. It's the oxytocin hormone, not estrogen.

Jeri said...

Drew's husband would probably have no idea what a infant/baby was like. Being around 9 - 12 yr olds (guessing ages-not sure) is nothing at all like caring for a baby.

Just throwing that out there.

auntliddy said...

My cousins husband was the same-difnt really care about kids, but fought hard fir custody. So he wld play all these games-" oh is it your day? Im taking the kids to the zoo". She used to plead and beg, but then she got smart. So one time when he was phlling this crap, she 'loh, thats wonderful hiu have plans with the children. Have a great time". Ten minutes he called back saying his plans were suddenly cancelled and kids available. Btw, he had primary custody,and he was an abusive bastard to them.

Jenn said...

I don't think kids are for everyone, but if you decide to have them you should be there for them, not just up and say, oh,no I changed my mind. There's no take backsies. What a sorry man.

Mango said...

If this was BAG it would be great for Megan Fox. Problem solved!

Has Drew been photographed with her new husband + child?

Pig Tracks said...

Tori Spelling?

Sherry said...

Never wanted children either and the Opster and I both agreed we'd adopt if we changed our minds. But not a baby. Parenting is not for the faint of heart or those with less than 120% commitment.
I think this is Meghan and BAG, although I initially thought Drew.

Melanie P. said...

Scratchy Kitty - I feel that you are in pain. I am so sorry that you are hurting. Since you dislike the "childfree" term, and that's okay - because you aren't child-FREE. Childfree folks like myself are those who are glad not to have kids, have no plans to have them, just don't want 'em. And that's okay - my fiance and I are CF (we found each other! Yay, we're like unicorns!).

Dear friend, you are child-LESS if you'd love to have them, and you are feeling pained about not having them. And that's okay to feel anger and frustration. All that to say, labels are for products, and not people. Just be you and try to find your joy. All the best!

Kathleen said...

Crils16 - Grey Gardens was television.

Anna Nonymous said...

It could be Drew for sure. Her husband has that closed minded, grumpy, egotistical, I'm so tough, and smart guy thing going on. I totally didn't think that they were a good match when I saw them together. She reminds me of myself, and he reminds me of my husband. It's so easy for nice,positive, kind women to fall for someone that's grumpy, unhappy, difficult. We think we can make them happy, and a lifetime of trying to do that doesn't sound bad at first.

tara17 said...

@mybrothehero, I admire your strength. I wish you all the peace and freedom soon to focus on your little one and what's important to you in your life.

Rez Fabulous said...

I never had birth to my son but he's my son. Yes it's not for everyone. I'm glad he was colic free. But there are times when it's difficult. But difficult so much that I would peace out. Probably not. I guess I can understand but that lil stinker needs me.
