Blind Item #4

This former A+ list celebrity/sometime B- list actress is still A list in the mind of many but it is all based on her past and her legend. She has been a mess for sometime and because of that, quietly sold off most of the rights to almost everything she has ever done. She blew through all that money and now can only get money by performing which is always a very shaky proposition.

Sadly, I'm thinking Liza with a Z

T. E. Cuz said...

liza minelli? (did i spell that correctly?)

Cathy said...

Liza or Cher.

msgirl said...

Yep, Liza. Sad.

Sherry said...

Gotta be Liza or Cher as Cathy and others said.

MISCH said...

Cher is too smart and not into drugs...

MontanaMarriott said...

Cher is super rich thanks to Geffen who schooled her on making money through real estate.

Liza or Diana Ross

chickenrotini said...

Definitely Liza. Enty using the term "shaky" convinced me immediately.

AnnWithoutAnE said...

Diana Ross?

Peter said...

Cher has plenty of $.. owns like a $30mil mansion and at least two other homes in LA, also think she just sold a place for 7mil but maybe she is cash poor.. Think liza was great guess, although from recent pics, she did manage to find $ to freshen her face.

Katie Cunningham said...

Liza is former A-list? Sorry-no chance. The woman is hollywood royalty through and through. Enty is wonky with these ratings though.

Cathy said...

I think the description sounds like Liza, but the ratings sound like Cher. As Katie said, Liza was not A+. Probably Liza though.

Merlin D. Bear said...

Tough call, Ross is doing casino shows now, where Liza still does the occasional cameo.
And both are Legends, no doubt about that.
There hasn't been much press on Ross lately ...she's flying way under the pap radar - which is weird, given Ross' legendary Divaness.
But that's just my little old opinion.


JoElla said...

I don't know if Sharon Stone has 'rights' to anything, but this kinda sounds like her.

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

Actually I was going to say Diana Ross simply because I've seen her in the media so much lately because of this broadway thing and other gigs.

Cher is permanent A list. According to wiki, "Cher has won an Academy Award, a Grammy Award, an Emmy Award, three Golden Globe Awards, and the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival. Her other ventures have included fashion designing, writing books and managing the film production company Isis. Recognized as one of the best-selling music artists of all time, she has sold more than 100 million solo albums and over 40 million records as Sonny & Cher worldwide. She is the only artist to have a number-one single on a Billboard chart in each of the past six decades."

caralw said...

Also, I think Cher has her shit together. Liza, not so much. She keeps going after obviously gay men. I say Liza.

hothotheat said...

Liza is on Arrested Development (the new season).

SugarCoatedBitch said...

Lauryn Hill.
Sister Act was a hit.
Legend = she was with Rohan Marley for years - Bob's son.
Fugees - considered a huge hip hop act
Miseducation of Lauryn Hill considered a hip hop classic...and rightfully so
Shaky performances - her recent tours have been a mess. 2-3 hours late, doesn't perform hits and surly
And is flat broke because of not paying taxes.

Courtney Love?

Anna Nonymous said...

OH Liza with a Z.... Courtney hasn't been performing lately has she? But Liza on the other hand has had a few sloppy, sad shows in the last year.

When I worked for this very famous record label years ago, she (Liza) came one day for a meeting with our president. I was in a marketing meeting with the rest of the staff and left the conference room to go get something from my desk. I happened to walk through the glass door to the hallway as she was exiting. I kinda waited a few steps away from the door to allow her to go first, but she gave me this look like "oh they fetched me the door girl," so I just sort of waddled back to the door and opened it up. My President looked at me and smiled like "just go with it" and she gave her double cheek kisses to him and looked at me with disdain. I was waiting for him to introduce me and say I did Sales so she didn't think I was this "door opening reject," but instead let me look like I was expected moments before and it's my fault she didn't get to the elevator 30 seconds earlier. I gave him shit later as he often sexually harassed me in public and we had a "Mad Men" understanding. He pointed out how good my boobs looked and I smiled and teased that I could sue him. Anyways, Liza was pretentious, bug eyed and had on eyelashes Niki Minaj couldn't even sport. Oh, and she is always in black sparkles, day or night. Needless to say, we didn't sign her.

AKM said...

Gotta be Liza. Ain't no way that ANY blind about drugs would be about Cher. She abhors them.

Anothergrayhare said...

Didn't Liza do one of those "What becomes a legend most?" Blackgama mink ads? Embarrassed that I remember that. Boy am I getting old.

Mandy said...

Liza is an EGOT She’s won three Tony Awards, an Oscar for Cabaret, a Grammy Legend Award and an Emmy for Liza with a ‘Z’—A Concert for Television.. No way in hell is she former A list.

auntliddy said...

Poor liza. She's gonna go out the way she came in-high, happy and unreliable.

Halfmad said...

I got a Courtney Love vibe from this one, too. But does she still get Nirvana income?

Flora Goforth said...

What rights would Liza have to sign away. Did she write any of her material?

sandybrook said...

Liza.

nudibelle said...

love love the lauryn hill guess. Liza will forever be A list

J said...

Liza former A-List but these tweeners are A? Liza is permanent A-List, screw your list. If anyone is allowed to be a diva, it's her. She has the pedigree to back it up. Who DOESN'T have money problems in this economy?

Non-story.

Sherry said...

Great story Camel!

di butler said...

Love it! Sounds like a lot of my stories working around famous people. Or, as my friend that is still in the biz calls it, "shadow peons." Yup, that was me. A peon. :)

Anna said...

Liza isn't a songwriter who could sell off "rights" to her material. She's always made most of her money from performing and, I guess, album sales although studios and songwriters' estates get a big cut of those.

Idiot Watcher said...

Oh Lucille 2. She's down again! Time to head back to the Plumb Institute to work out that shakiness.

Carrie fisher

I just got an email today about a Diana Ross concert in San Francisco, so she must be going back on the road again to make some money. I think this sounds like her. Ross fits the B- actress better than Liza, since her film roles ("The Wiz," "Mahogany") were much more marginal than Liza's. Liza won an Oscar for "Cabaret" and was nominated for "The Sterile Cuckoo." Granted, it was back in the 70s but I just think Diana fits the description of "sometime B- actress" better than Liza.

Agent**It said...

Sugar, interesting !!

Popnursing said...

Carrie Fisher.

Hegg said...

I was thinking Courtney Love too.

Jon said...

Totally Lauren Hill.

Camille said...

LeAnn Rimes?
