Blind Item #4

Talk about being on the down low. This is the first time I have heard about this almost A list movie and television actress who has always tried to stay out of the press and be squeaky clean do anything scandalous.   She has made her name lately in movies but when the world finds out about her fling with her very married television co-star, people are going to start talking about our actress in a way they have not before.

Zooey D. and one of the New Girl guys?

Erin B said...

Kerry Washington? I'm not sure about her rating but the use of "scandalous" made me think of her. That & she's making a name in movies in "Django."

Chicky said...

Jennifer Lawrence and Bill Engvall!!!! (Kidding - but what an image!)

Schmucky Putz said...

Band Camp Girl and Doogie Howser!

I second the Kerry Washington guess.

VIPblonde said...

Hmmm (looks through Mail)....

Lucy Liu is in the Mail. She's on Elementary with Jonny Lee Miller (Jolie's first husband, who is now remarried with kids)

Haven't hear anything about hanky panky, and don't know if Lucy would be considered A, but that's all I got!

ealt985 said...

Melissa McCarthy?

Reasons:
1. The success of Bridesmaids (and her subsequent Oscar nomination for it) could qualify her as almost A-list.
2. She is also on the TV show Mike and Molly (TV and film actress) and her co-star is married.
3. She herself is seemingly happily married with a kid, therefore she doesn't exactly scream scandalous.

Chicky said...

Nooooo! I hope it's not her - I love her

MadLyb said...

Ooo, I like the Lucy Liu guess, but I thought she was gay?

Trey said...

Sounds like the opposite of Lui, who made her name in movies and is now doing television.

The Kerry Washington guess is based on the blind using the word "scandalous"? I like it, though I'd be sad if Kerry had a negative scandal coming out. I like her too much. I hope she's having an affair with her female co-star though!

HaterBaby said...

Don't think it's Zooey. She made her name in movies in the early 2000s, if anything her movie star shine is gone now. Hasn't been in a feature in two years. Plus she's an A-list television actress. Definitely doesn't try to stay out of the press, constantly doing magazine covers and fishing for style pieces with every red carpet appearance.

Probably Kerry Washington. And of course "scandalous" points to that as well.

Kerry Washington

ash said...

ohh melissa mccarthy fits the best - i wouldnt say any of the rest of them have made their name recently in movies while still being on tv; they're all more famous for tv now. have zooey d or lucy liu even been in a movie recently? but melissa mccarthy had bridesmaids and now that identity thief movie with jason bateman. and her costar is married. that would be crazy tho! hope it isn't true :(

B626 said...

Yup Kerry Washington but which co-star? Columbus Short? Guillermo Díaz? Tony Goldwyn? Or maybe a married star during all this Django press tour. Christopher Waltz!

A RESIDENT said...

Michelle Williams

Trey said...

B626, it says her married television co-star. Goldwyn is a good guess, their chemistry is off the charts.

William Tibbetts said...

Clearly Betty White...

JSierra said...

Damn Erin ya beat me to it!

It's not really scandalous, but isn't Kerry known for being quite cunty in real life?

HaterBaby said...

By the way, how the hell would Enty know about this? I can't imagine either of them blabbing about this. And I sincerely doubt some production assistant is noting them going into the same trailer or something during lunch and gossiping about it to some "wills and probate lawyer" as NY Post described

Silly Girl said...

I was thinking more along the lines of Kelly Ripa (I KNOW she's a host, not an actress, but she's squeaky clean). Not sure any of the guesses are right. Kerry Washington is in a show called Scandalous, so those of us who don't know her don't know if it's far from the truth or not. So, sort of negates that for me.

Amber said...

Still think it's Jennifer Love Hewitt. She's movies and TV, and she's a goody-goody. We only ever hear about how she's so broken-hearted; it would be quite the scandal if she was a homewrecker.

Amber said...

Crap nevermind. It's LATELY in movies.

nova said...

Doesn't "being on the down low" imply this is a secret homosexual relationship?

RocketQueen said...

Hmm...Laura Dern? It says this person is currently on a television show and having an affair with a married co-star, people.

FlirtyChick74 said...

Down low
Scandalous
Married
Those all equal Kerry Washington to me.
I'm going to broaden the guesses and include women too. The First Lady on the show or one of those ladies in the firm could work too. I vaguely remember a few years back that some gossip site hinted at her being lesbian or bi. It quickly died down, of course.

shakey said...

HaterBaby - wasn't there a recent blind about a woman who was planning on doing something scandalous just to get some publicity going? I'm wondering if this is the same person.

Dagny said...

@RocketQueen, I was going in the opposite direction. It says that she's "lately made her name in movies", maybe she used to be on tv and is now having an affair with her former costar?

It makes sense in my head, I promise.

MAC said...

Yes I was confused, because when I read down low I assumed the blind was about someone with the same sex, but the blind doesn't mention the sex of the co-star, so I'm not sure.

MAC said...

Oh and the line about "people are going to start talking about our actress in a way they have not before" may mean that she is not one that is typically viewed as sexy or in a sexual way.

eythorne said...

I like the Melissa McCarthy guess, I watched Jason Bateman on Jon Stewart last night and he was gushing and I mean GUSHING about her...

Gretchen Kocinsky said...

Ginnifer Goodwin and someone from Once Upon a Time?

B. Profane said...

Please, let this not be Tina Fey....

SkittleKitty said...

If Lucy Liu is straight, which I don't know, I wouldn't say she's 'lately in movies' (though she did get her start on TV--Ally McBeal).

Melissa McCarthy seems to fit best and that would be a big surprise.

All about Eve said...

@ealt985, I thought Melissa and her co star on TV couldn't stand each other? At least that was the rumor.

All about Eve said...

It says television co star, if it is Melissa it can't be with Jason Bateman.

I'm going with Kerry Washington.

B. Profane said...

Even for a numbered BI I don't think the CDAN writers would use the term "on the down low" loosely. This BI (if true) refers to a lesbian affair.

Jim Rockford said...

Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe.

Schmucky Putz said...

Band Camp Girl Alyson Hanigan and Cobie Smoulders. Hot!

B. Profane said...

Rashida Jones and Amy Poehler, if you backdate the BI to before Amy's divorce being announced.

Tori said...

@B.Profane - I like your guess! I can't get past "down low" and assume it's a heterosexual relationship. That term is ALWAYS used to describe closeted homosexuals & the last bit about her being talked about in a whole new light totally screams "pushed out of the closet."

Susan said...

Its not Kerry Washington-stayed at the Hassler in Rome when they were all there for press tour, opening. She wasn't near him, hanging w JFoxx (who had quite a bit to say at 1am re: Leo, Kate Winslet, etc.) And Tarantino. Also, her mother or some other older woman. Sam Jackson and other guy were w others.

crila16 said...

Who's Kerry Washington. Never heard of her. She's an almost A list movie and TV star?

I'm going with Zooey D. She's in movies and TV and is almost an A list.

Erin B said...

crila16 - I would say Kerry Washington is. She's pretty popular right now. She is the lead of a successful tv show called "Scandal" & is in "Django Unchained." She's been everywhere at the award shows & is featured a lot because of her fashion sense.

As others have pointed out, Zooey hasn't been making her name in movies lately. Her last lead role was in 2009 in "(500) Days of Summer." Hardly making her name currently.

rocketyank said...

Just want to day that Tony Goldwyn is insanely sexy and always has been.

B. Profane said...

Actually, I could see Amy Poehler, if she found out Arnett was cheating on her (much rumored), having a "I've had it with men!" phase and falling into the loving arms of Rashida Jones. I believe there have been rumors that Rashida is bi.

After what she said about Travolta it would be pretty scandalous if Rashida was having a secret lesbian affair.

Erin B said...

Melissa McCarthy is in the photos. Reveal or red herring?

Gabby said...

But Rashida isn't married, so it couldn't be her. They call each other "my wife" all the time, and I think they would be adorable together, but I don't think they're who this blind is referring to. It could refer to Amy Poehler and Adam Scott, however. I would LOVE them together, but Adam's wife is so wonderful I can't bring myself to root for Amy/Adam too hard...

Gabby said...

Oh, wait B. Profane I see where you're coming from - if this blind was before Sept 2012 this could be them! I don't know Enty's frame of reference for when something happens to when he publishes!

mannyv said...

"Down Low" used to be what you called black guys when they hooked up with other black guys.

So I'd guess that this one is staying in that vein and she slept with her female, married co-star.

brooklyngirl said...

I am on the Kerry Washington train, however I think she is having an affair with the president on scandal. There was a blind about this several months ago about steamy love scenes being real on a tv show, I think it is Kerry and Tony Goldwyn. He has been married since 87'. With all the "press" she has been getting about being the first black woman lead in a long time on a tv show, maybe enty is making a clue about her sleeping with someone of another race.

B. Profane said...

The subject of the BI is not specified to be in a relationship, so it could be Rashida.

My sense is that these numbered BI's come from sources outside the blog, so it's possible some details would be out of date. Plus some of the BI details are fudged, and I suspect that BI's about closeted stars are those most likely to be fudged since Enty does not (mostly) out people. Or it's just completely fake. Change the clue to read "...her once very married television co-star..." and Rashida and Amy fit this BI quite well.

Rashida has a kind of goody-goody rep, stays out of the tabs and did make that comment about Travolta.

B. Profane said...

Rashida is also half-black, which fits the "down low" clue very well.

B. Profane said...

(See, I always knew that Linc and Julie were secretly hooking up, and Rashida is their lovechild.)

MAC said...

I'm a sucker though and keep trying to hold true all the tidbits of fact that I have learned about this site through the years. Early in the days it was expressed that Enty knew Rashida Jones and that he doesn't write about his "friends". ie: Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, America Ferrara, Amber Tamblyn, etc... Although, I have to admit that the site has changed a bit with all the extra blinds, so who knows anymore.

erica s said...

How about SJP? Famous for TV, but lately movies.

B. Profane said...

MAC, I don't remember Rashida being on Enty's friends list but I'll take your word for it. However:

--This is a numbered BI and I don't think ur-Enty writes these or even reviews them.

--He may know that she's planning to come out anyway.

jgirl828 said...

PLEASE let it be Claire Danes and Damien Lewis. They have amazing on-screen chemistry!

B. Profane said...

As to Kerry Washington, none of her leading female co-stars are married according to their IMDB profiles.

smash said...

Rashida is hot. Amy and her together would be sexzZy. :)

B. Profane said...

As pretty as she is, at first I couldn't figure out why Rashida seemed extra appealing to me. And then I remembered that the first shows I could remember watching as a little kid were The Mod Squad and Room 222. So Peggy Lipton was the first "pretty TV lady" imprinted on my youthful mind (her and Karen Valentine, I suppose). Rashida looks like a mocha-tinted version of her mom.

Gabby said...

@ B Profane - a few months ago I was reading back to posts from 2007 and Enty used to comment about Rashida like "she should really call me back so we can hang out again," etc. I haven't seen any posts alluding to their friendship in a long time, but they definitely used to be friends.

PookieTwo said...

According to wikipedia Tony Goldwyn has been married since '89.

bigcountry. said...

selena gomez.

dragon said...

How did I miss this thread LESBO. Love it

I dont know who it is But I better not be Kerry Washington.

Tay Diggs he on the down low? kidding

Megan Good?. She seems like a chick to go down

BeeBeeOh said...

down low---

Kerry washington was in Keenan Ivory Wayans film LOW DOWN DIRTY SHAME.

CantHelpBeingCandid said...

Kerry Washington was not in LOW DOWN dIRTY SHAME. Jada Pinkett was - these 2 women look nothing alike.

dragon said...

MEGAN GOOD?

NaughtyNurse said...

Helen Hunt with her ex costar, Paul Reiser from one of the best sitcoms ever: Mad About You.

MAC said...

In fact I remember speculation in the comments that Rashida was one of Entys ex wives. I think there was a post or a blind where he mentioned marrying a good friend on a whim in Vegas (wife 3 I think) and it was a mistake but they were still friends.

jen said...

god I hope not, jake Johnson's wife seems cool.

JSierra said...

Jen Jake Johnson's wife? You just broke my heart. I hope this is a typo :(

Molly said...

Diaz is gay and has a long term partner. Probably not him.

Molly said...

Diaz is gay and has a long term partner. Probably not him.

Tatyana said...

@Gretchen Kocinsky said...
"Ginnifer Goodwin and someone from Once Upon a Time?"

She has already broken the marriage of her onscreen lover, why would an affair with yet another married costar make ppl look at her in a new light?

B. Profane said...

I highly doubt that Rashida is one of Enty's ex's (keeping in mind that personal details like that he claims are probably fake to some degree). However, Rashida was engaged to Mark Ronson at one point and it would not surprise me at all if Enty was friends with Ronson.

B. Profane said...

Probably this is another fake BI intended to be Kerry Washington.

PiscesFemme said...

I too think it's intended to be Kerry Washington. 1. 'Down Low'- Kerry was in the movie "She Hate Me" in which she played a lesbian. 2. Squeaky clean image- Kerry just received an NAACP award for her philanthropy work and her work with the Obama campaign. 3. Not doing anything scandalous- Well, she is on the show 'Scandal'. 4. Very married co-star- Tony Goldwyn has been married for 20 years or more.
She's definitely dated outside her race on more than one occasion, so this wouldn't surprise a lot of people. However, a lot of people speak very highly of her, so if this turned out to be true, people wouldn't be so easy to forgive her I think.

B. Profane said...

Except that it's definitely intended to be deciphered as a black actress having a lesbian fling with her TV co-star. That's the clear implication of including the term "down low." So clearly intended to be read as Kerry Washington, although my guess of Rashida Jones was also plausible.

Posting a fake BI about either of them, frankly, seems pretty damn sleazy.
