Blind Item #3

This B- list mostly television actress is having to quietly walk away from her medical claim against a studio. She had been loud and brassy about it, but when she found out they were going to require a drug test and look at her medical history, she decided it was not that important after all.

The only actress I recall that was having issues with her health & her job is Jennifer Esposito & "Blue Bloods."

Hmmm...Jennifer Esposito got fired from Blue Bloods (was that the show?) for something medical, and Chenoweth got conked on the head while she was filming a guest spot on a show...

libby said...

Uh oh Erin. I think you got it.

libby said...

Oh, no...LOUD and BRASSY does sound like Chenoweth....maybe VIP got it.

Dasha said...

I can see this being either Jennifer Esposito or Kristen Chenowith. Both were really loud. Is Esposito B- list, though? I'd think she was C or D. I can also see Chenowith having substance problems. She seems to be looney.

libby said...

'Brassy' reminds me of both Broadway, and Chenoweth's hair color, sometimes.

MISCH said...

Sadly I think it's Jennifer Esposito

Kristen had a studio light fall on her head. She was hardly at fault. Bounced right back and kept on working she didn't blame the show or network. It was a windy day and it was just an accident.

Jennifer Esposito went on a PR campaign against CBS/Blue Bloods for firing her becuase she asked for a reduced work schedule due to her Celiac Disease.

CBS claimed it was a ploy to break her contract and get a raise and let her go.

They played hard ball with the cast of CSI who tried to call in sick Jorja Fox and George Estes, both got in line and went right back to work with their existing contracts.

Funny, haven't heard a peep out of Jennifer about it her dismissal for a long time.

Nicolette Sheridan ?

Sarah said...

Brass is a term used to refer to cops, so I'm betting Episito

mamabot said...

I am going to co-sign on CamColty's guess.

All about Eve said...

I think this is Espisito too

MadJ said...

I was also thinking nicolette

beth said...

Brassy is obviously a cop pun.

Rosie Perez was suing L&O:SVU over a neck injury, not sure if that ever got resolved.

GossipMonster said...

I think I read somewhere that she opened a gluten free bakery. Esposito that is. I think this is supposed to be her.

msgirl said...

Definitely Esposito. She made a huge stink, and then it all went away.

Martita L said...

Yeah, Jennifer Esposito seems most likely. Remember when she was married to Bradley Cooper for about 5 months back around 2007. What was up with that; does anyone know?

She seems to have a pretty tumultuous life.

violet said...

Sounds like Esposito. I really liked her on Blue Bloods - she was also great in that old Christina Applegate TV show - she played to BFF.
I'm also curious about her quickie marriage to B Coop - heard many versions (he cheated and he was abusive)

Sherry said...

Think it's Jennifer also but unless they have some magic bullet that shoots through HIPPA rules they cannot look into her medical history. They can request a drug test but they cannot make her take one. And neither can they deny her any compensation if it turns up positive. She needs a better lawyer.
Fuck those guys at Blue Bloods!

Esposito fo sho

kelley said...

I like Esposito and hope it's not her. And thanks for the hopeful news about her bakery. I hadn't heard that. Let's see if I can link to the NYPost story about it: Bakery story

cricket said...

I think it's Jennifer Espositio too. I liked her on the show she was much better than the one on there now.

Borg Queen said...

There is a new E show that had a section about Jennifer and her new bakery for those that are interested.

Except for the mostly television part, I read this as Kristin Chenowith all the way. Although her Broadway days are quite a long time ago so perhaps it fits. She's been all television since the West Wing.

Erik said...

I think this is Jennifer Esposito too, but wouldn't CBS had given her a drug test and checkup before hiring her in the first place?

texas rose said...

If studios made getting a drug test a condition of getting a role (exept where past history means no insurance) no one would get hired.

The BLS said...

I'm jumping on board this guess.

Jenn said...

Think it's that tiny Chenoworth.

"Remember when she was married to Bradley Cooper for about 5 months back around 2007. What was up with that; does anyone know?"

The people who want to believe B.Coop is gay will tell you she caught him in bed with a guy, but the more plausible explanation that has sort of been confirmed by things he's said (and Enty hinted at it, too), is that he gets nasty mean when he's drunk and he beat her, so she left. To give him credit, he said he stopped drinking when he realized how bad he was, and it seems like that's true.
