Today's Blind Items - The Movie That Got Her Hooked

This actress is probably C list. Name recognition is probably A list. She has had a long battle with drugs and booze and addiction. It can all be traced back to one particular movie. Our actress was just peaking. She had a television show and then she decided to take on the filming of a movie while she was also filming the television show. Her boyfriend at the time was an A list celebrity. Now he is probably a C list celebrity. He gave our actress her very first bump of coke and said it would help her get through the day. Yeah, it helped her get through that day but there were 40 more days of filming and she increased those bumps from one a day to 20 a day. Things got so bad, no one was sure that the movie would ever be finished. The tv show had a definite change from ones she filmed before getting hooked and those after. Her boyfriend at the time got her pregnant but blamed it on some other guy even though our actress was only seeing him. Our actress had a miscarriage and dumped the boyfriend soon after but then went on a crazy bender where she was with multiple guys and was just out of control.

Pam Anderson and Kid Rock?

Vicki Cupper said...

Did she film Barbed Wire while she was on Boobwatch?

Frufra said...

Re Pam: looks like she was still married to Tommy when she made Barb Wire, for what that's worth.

FSP said...

Pam and Bret Michaels

Stephanie McDonald said...

Could it be Lara Flynn Boyle. Maybe 'peaking' was a hint, bc of Twin Peaks. She was in a few movies, including Afterglow.

MontanaMarriott said...

This could be anybody from Amanda Bynes to Pam A.

Frufra said...

I thought of LFB, too. Who was she dating during Twin Peaks?

Karen said...

Isn't Pamela Anderson described as a celebrity now rather than an actress? She's more famous for being famous than for acting.

Frufra said...

Karen, I also think Pam stil has A name recognition, not just almost A.

OT, so sue me, but too good not to share:

Rachel Bilson

Frufra said...

If you check out the link, you'll see Richard Dean Anderson with a sweet blond mullet. You're welcome.

dragon said...

Amanda Bynes? idk

Darkmyst said...

I could see this being Amanda Bynes and Frankie Muniz (movie would be Big Fat Liar) but I'm not sure they ever actually dated.

camembert said...

If this is Lara Flynn Boyle, I would think that the TV show referenced would be Boston Legal or The Practice, not Twin Peaks. I can't recall any of her boyfriends except Jack Nicholson.

Fijigrrl said...

Amanda Bynes?

Jennifer H. said...

David Spade dated her. That has always seemed really weird to me.

Karen said...

@Jennifer H., David Spade also dated Heather Locklear. I don't get it. He looks like a rat.

Onyx Loathes Hydrangeas said...

I'm thinking Heather Locklear. Trying to make the rest fit. As far as I'm reading it doesn't look like the celeb bf was in the movie, so it could really be anyone.

Mikey said...

I was thinking Demi Moore, on General Hospital at the time they filmed St Elmos Fire. Joel Schumacher almost fired her because of the drugs. Wasn't she dating Emilio Estevez at the time?
I know I'm wrong, but she instantly popped into my head!

B626 said...

LFB did MM3 during The Practice
early 2000's
Ms Anderson did Barbwire mid
1990's.
Can't believe either of these gals waited that long to sample cocaine.
It's Hollywood!!

letsrunawayagain said...

What about Heather Graham? Was also in twin peaks and dating James Woods around the same time.

hilloochka said...

LFB dated kyle maclachlan in the Twin Peaks days. I hate to admit it, but it fits.
(and since Kyle was also in Lynch's Dune, this TOTALLY asks for dune/spice related jokes.)

ulalume said...

Mischa Barton filmed "The Oh in Ohio" while still on The O.C. & her character definitely changed. She ruined that show. I guess her boyfriend was either Brandon Davis or Cisco Adler.

Silly Girl said...

Love the MacGuyver link! I had NO IDEA he dated so many from hollywood! He certainly has a type though, doesn't he!?

HalleGoLightly said...

Helen Hunt. Hank Azaria. She got really thin after her movie career took off with "Twister." She and Hank didn't last much longer.

Count Jerkula said...

I'm in with ulalume on the Mischa Barton guess.

Sherry said...

I'm thinking Mischa Barton also.

Schmucky Putz said...

Janine Turner. She was on "Northern Exposure" when she did "Cliffhanger" with Sly Stallone.

Laura said...

I like the Misha guess!

Agent**It said...

Mackenzie Philips

Basil said...

From the reading I was thinking Mischa Barton. Glad to see others agree.

Agent**It said...

movie was American Graffiti and tv was One Day at a Time.

Andrea said...

My first thought was LFB, but then it often is.

Frufra said...

I like this guess, Agent. Especially since this BI kinda sounds like it was drawn from the pages of a tell-all. And I believe Mackenzie wrote one of those a while back. Anyone out there read her book?

Frufra said...

Well, sadly, American Graffiti was two years before One Day at a Time started.

All about Eve said...

I'm thinking this is Mischa too, fits perfectly.

Agent**It said...

Fru, so close:)

Pisces Girl said...

Mischa was the name that immediately popped into my head while reading.

Cecilia00 said...

I read Mackenzie's book. Her first time trying cocaine was at age 11 or 12, her and her brother stole it from their Dad's stash. She was using cocaine long before One Day At A Time

Frufra said...

Thanks, Cecilia. I thought her dad had a hand in Mackenzie's drug use, but thought maybe he just (!) smoked weed with her. Silly me.

Count Jerkula said...

Mackenzie and John used to do great interviews on Howard Stern's show, you know, way back when his show was interesting and funny. She told a story of how her pop used to own a pharmacy and he would order shitloads of pharmaceutical cocaine to trade with gangsters for smack. This was back before the Colombians figured out the smuggling game and cocaine was still a rich man's sport.

Jaiden_S said...

Mischa B is a great guess.

Cheryl said...

@Count-and that fits with the story in Keith Richards book about John Philips offering him some pharmaceutical grade cocaine and Keith giving him some pure heroin. He claims that JP got hooked on heroin faster than anyone he's ever known.

Margaux said...

I thought Mischa while reading it too - but none of her boyfriends have been A list anything so that is a little confusing.

The OC sucked when she was no longer on it.

Kloie said...

I think Hayden P. She dated Stephen Coletti from Laguna Beach (big at the time).

Count Jerkula said...

Yeah, Poppa John was really a horrid human being, absolute mess, but holy shit could he right a song. I also like the furry hats he wore in the early days.

Rez Fabulous said...

No guess but Kyle Maclaclans is from my town. Still boggles the mind

leemonada76 said...

Shannen Doherty - mallrats w jason london.

laura said...

Rose McGowan and Manson? Charmed being the show and possibly jawbreaker for the movie?
