Blind Item #5

This reality star is probably C list here in the States despite her being on a very hit reality show. In her own country she is closer to an A list celebrity. She has thrust herself in the news lately and has taken her obsession to a whole new level. She found a guy who she put the full court press on and is desperate to marry him because he has a title and her sworn enemy would have to address her by a title when they see each other. Which they will.

Sworn enemy. This is some serious shit. :)

Gayeld said...

Do people actually have "sworn enemies?"

Kara said...

So, I'm guessing that her sworn enemy is from a foreign country where titles are also recognized? Like maybe they are British?

Karen said...

I've tried to have a sworn enemy, but the other person will NOT pinky swear on it--and how could I trust her even if she did?

Maybe someone from The Saturdays? Is their reality show on E! a hit?

LeGrange said...

Shit! Just LOLed in the Office!

Schmucky Putz said...

How about the boobalicious Gail Simmons from Top Chef. Isn't she a Canuck?

Schmucky Putz said...

Psych. I just wanted to say, "Boobalicious."

kpist said...

Didn't that Mollie girl from the Saturdays date Prince Harry?

CraftyGirl said...

Cheryl Cole?

dragon said...

Shit just got Real.

VIPblonde said...

Hmm... Brits with sworn enemies

Katie Price and Victoria Beckham
Katie Price and Jodie Marsh

Maybe it's just Katie Price that has sworn enemies? But she just married a stripper, so can't be her. Oh, well. I've got nothing

Rain said...

Sworn enemy dichotomy right there.

Where's Shelly? said...

oh snap

Eloise said...

Katherine Jenkins

skimpymist said...

Sounds like cheryl cole or that opera singer that was linked to david beckham and was on dancing with the stars.

B. Profane said...

Sounds like someone in the UK. Titles mean almost nothing outside of the UK these days.

Hopefully it's not some sleazebag trying to get her claws into Lord Haden-Guest.

Unknown said...

I think this may be Katherine Jenkins the English opera singer who was on Dancing With the Stars and rumored to have had an affair with David Beckham. There was a report recently that Victoria B has banded Katherine from the list of celebrities who can get freebies from her label.

Good call, @Eloise! Just saw this:

Katherine Jenkins Dating Prince Hot Ginge's Friend

And as Unknown mentioned, Posh bans Jenkins Freebies

Empress of Socks said...

"Will have to call her by this title" or what? What will happen if she doesn't (not being snotty, it's a real question)

Maximus said...

It's me. And Prince Hot Ginge. And my sworn enemy are any of you trifling ladies getting in my way.

B. Profane said...

In posh social circles in the UK failing to address someone by their title is Not Done.

B. Profane said...

Also, because hereditary titles are almost never bestowed anymore, and a number of hereditary titles die out every year due to lack of legitimate heirs, the remaining hereditary peers become even more posh.

phoenix said...

Adam Bidwell is a rugby player and friend of Prince Harry, but I can't find anything about him having a royal title.

B. Profane said...

Understandable mistake, given that ruggers are the royalty of the sporting world.

Ruggers are royalty in the sporting world. Some buggers are royalty as well, darling. Sir Elton John, for instance.

Schmucky Putz said...

Kelly Osbourne and Lord Scott Disick for the win bizzitches!

O'Really said...

Well then, Maximus, IT IS ON! Harry is my hot Gingersnap! MINE!

Patricia said...

Someone from the Shahs of Sunset?

Andrew said...

Not Cheryl Cole. She's not a reality star she's a pop star. Even before her stint on XF she was a well known pop star.

Andrea said...

Katherine Jenkins will not thank you for calling her English, Unkown. She's as Welsh as they come.

JSierra said...

Potato chips are my sworn enemy, especially the dill and gator flavored Zappos staring at me from the pantry right now.

Kat Jenkins fits to a t though, nice work daners.

All about Eve said...

@Maximus, hahaha!!! You win!

B. Profane said...

There are such things as alligator-flavored potato chips?

Sherry said...

Oh JSierra..Loves them chips..Are they really Zappos? For some reason i nrever caught the closeness in name to the online shoe empire.

JSierra said...

Sherry yeahh buddy they are indeed Zappos, they sell them at H-E-B, Langsteins, and sometimes Whole Foods. I am not sure if you have any of those in your beautiful bay city but I highly recommend the Dill&Gator, Voodoo, and Crawfish flavors. You will probably hate me for that suggestion after you eat the entire bag, but they are just sooo good!

PotPourri said...

Kelly Osborne is engaged...

Alita said...

I'm not super 100%, but I'm pretty sure Katie Price has sworn at enemies! I think it was this chav chick with a wide hairband. Nice catch!

Alita said...

Somehow I totally found B Profane credible when pontificating on American military / political policy in the middle east. Rebuttal of the 'anthrax solution' amused in it's obvious correctness but withering style. However conversely the opinions on British class mores .. didn't work for me. We're going to have to re-shoot with a new actor, and some modified lines. Get the writers and social consultants in.

;)

B. Profane said...

Haaa? Yeah, I can't even work up a snarky laugh, that was so unfunny.

I've lived in the UK. My observation were completely accurate.

Munch said...

@B.Profane "In posh social circles in the UK failing to address someone by their title is Not Done" - I live in the UK and know some aristo types. In posh social circles it would be a bit of a faux pas to address someone by their title. The upper classes all know each other or are related to each other, so they wouldn't use formal titles. That would come across as a bit of a social-climber error. If you went to the right school and are part of the county set then you already know these things. I must point out that I am neither an aristo nor did I go to the 'right' school, I just know people who are.

I'd be hesitant at saying Jenkins is A list - she barely rates a side bar on the Daily Fail anymore. Her pathetic attempt to get in the news by claiming to not have had an affair with Beckham when nobody had ever mentioned anything of the sort smacks of desperation rather than A list.

Munch is nearer the mark than B. Profane here. Apart from written or printed formal uses [e.g. formal invitations, place cards, hatches, matches, and dispatches (printed notices announcing births, marriages, and deaths)], or on first mention in print journalism written for a readership who are likely to be unaware of the person's title, titles in recent years "go without saying".

In spoken contexts, the BBC is our guide here, Lord Bragg hosts "In Our Time" on Radio 4 and is generally addressed by his guests as "Melvyn". Some years ago, Sir Clement Freud and Sir Tim Rice were both panellists on "Just a Minute" and were introduced by Nicholas Parsons as "Clement Freud" and "Tim Rice" and were called thus or by their given names throughout. Simon Mayo and Mark Kermode recently interviewed Sir Ridley Scott about "Prometheus" with not a "Sir" to be heard.

As to the hereditary peers, those who have made a name for themselves by their own achievements often style themselves untitleld e.g. John Julius Norwich (2nd Viscount Norwich), Michael Ancram (13th Marquess of Lothian) et cetera.

In most informal social contexts, it is now gauche to mention titles. One is supposed to know them, of course, if only to be able to correctly address formal invitations. Talking of them aloud betrays the speaker's social insecurity and social inferiority; bad form, that.
