Today's Blind Items - Not Even The Same Person

Back in the day, this barely hanging on to B list by a thread mostly movie actress was not the same person she is today. Back then she wanted to be a huge star. She still does, but has given up realistic hope of it because of what has gone on in her life the past few years. When she was younger she was the drug queen of LA. She plays the high and mighty and pious role now, but back when she was at her peak professionally she was the go to person for party drugs and for being the party girl. Pot and coke were her two favorites. Coke introduced her to several of her more famous boyfriends. She couldn't get enough and they couldn't get enough of her. Don't get me wrong. She is a very good actress and at one point she had a guy many thought would never get married, down on one knee with a huge ring. She turned him down. Repeatedly. She was not interested in settling down. Only fun. She had it all the time and thought nothing of snorting line after line off men's or women's bodies. She would work all day and spend her money and others on drugs. Then one night, something bad happened and her advisers told her if she really wanted to continue on the path of being a star she needed to at least marry someone. Try to stop taking so many drugs and being the party girl everyone wants to take home. She managed to get married to a guy in a matter of months and followed the advice of her advisers, but had no idea about her now husband. She was told he was available and he was looking to get married for his own career and a match was made. One that would change both their lives forever.

Um that girl who married Jamie bell.

Come on peeps law and order this shit out

iheartgoss said...

Hmmmm...I don't think Heather Locklear because her most famous roles were TV... Otherwise I got nothing.

Unknown said...

Jessica Alba?

Amber said...

Katie Holmes.

Karen said...

Kelly Preston. Ex was George Clooney and John Travolta for the husband?

Except she was married before him. So not her, I guess.

Amber said...

Kidding.

s.breezy29 said...

Kelly Preston and John Travolta, guy that proposed George Clooney or Charlie Sheen?

VIPblonde said...

I know this is going back a bit, but what if this is Kelly Preston? John Travolta for the marriage, and Clooney for the guy who kept asking her to marry him? Anyone that gets shot in the arm by Charlie Sheen can't be squeaky clean

MontanaMarriott said...

I like the ominous ending, Enty tell us more. Wasn't Kelly Preston a Hollywood brat with her father being Robert Preston? This fits I think.

Cathy said...

Kelly Preston was my first guess too.

Renoblondee said...

Sounds like Kelly. She was a hottie back when.

Matt & Jess said...

Kelly Preston fits this perfectly

VIPblonde said...

Good job @Karen! You got there first!!

Just Another HR Lady said...

Sarah Jessica Parker? She has an impressive list of ex's, including John Kennedy Jr.

Karen said...

Hmm...now I'm thinking Charlie Sheen for the ex. George Clooney wasn't famous when he and Kelly were together and I doubt anyone speculated on whether he'd get married--a second time, for that matter. People forget about his marriage.

Advisors makes sense, too, given $cientology.

RaRaShhhhhhhh said...

Kelly Preston. Bad thing that happened Charlie Sheen shooting incident?

MontanaMarriott said...

Oh wow in looking at KP IMDB page there is no mention of Robert Preston being her dad. I could have sworn they were related.

Karen said...

From IMDB: "Although they never married, Charlie Sheen presented Kelly with a 2.5 karat pink diamond engagement ring when he proposed to her in 1989."

Unknown said...

I like @Dragon's guess. Evan Rachel Wood makes an insane amount of sense

tara17 said...

I was thinking Kelly Preston as well.

Gossip Marmalade said...

Kelly Preston for sure

Anothergrayhare said...

Kelly Preston fits perfectly. I didn't follow celebrity gossip when she was young so I don't remember if she was a party girl, but everthing else fits, especially getting shot by Charlie Sheen.

Karen said...

Umm....also from IMDB, remember that Kelly Preston had a son with her first husband? On her ex's page it says specifically that he and Kelly never had any children together.

Where's Kelly Preston's oldest son?!

cricket said...

Kelly Preston sounds perfect for this.

Glitter said...

Not the daughter of Robert Preston.

KellyLynn said...

I like the Kelly Preston guess.

VIPblonde said...

@Karen I think you were right with Clooney. Sheen loves getting married; I can't remember him ever stating publicly anything negative about marriage. After Clooney's divorce in '93, he has always publicly stated he wouldn't get married again. Kelly's also the person that bought George his pig that he had for years!

SKOR said...

But Kelly Preston was previously married - in 1985, to Kevin Gage.
This blind sounds like her current marriage was her first.

Jessica said...

Kelly Preston does not fit at ALL with this: "Back then she wanted to be a huge star. She still does, but has given up realistic hope of it..."

SKOR said...

@Jessica: and "She managed to get married to a guy in a matter of months.."....Travolta and Preston were an item for 4 years before they got married.

saycheese said...

what's the deal with Kelly Preston's youngest son Benjamin? He doesn't look ANYTHING like John Travolta. It's obvious that Jett and Ella are John's but I have doubts about her 4th child

Smokey772 said...

just to show you how bad I am at these, I read this as Winona Ryder the whole time until the end.

Karen said...

@SKOR, Preston was with Charlie Sheen in 89-90. She married Travolta in 1991.

saycheese said...

@Skor, it says she was engaged to Charlie Sheen in 1990 and then married to Travolta in 1991. She had known Travolta longer, because they did a movie together in 1987, but they weren't dating

katydid said...

Karen,
Her first son lives with her parents in Hawaii. The rumour is he's disables and she doesn't acknowledge him publicly. If this is true she is a horrible person. This blind fits her to a "T"

VIPblonde said...

@SKOR Some of the online "timelines" are misleading. She met Travolta in 1987, but was just getting divorced then. She was shot by Charlie Sheen in 1990, then got engaged to Travolta January 1st, 1991

Karen said...

@katydid, I remember that. And I remembered reading that they had a son together on either IMDB or Wikipedia, but now all mentions of him have been erased. $cientologists got to the pages, I assume.

SKOR said...

@Karen @saycheese @VIPblonde: I stand corrected: I read it as began dating in 87, instead of just meeting.

Angela said...

Kelly Preston was involved with scientology at least as early as 1988:

http://www.truthaboutscientology.com/stats/by-name/k/kelly-preston.html

Scientology strongly condemns drugs, so it seems a little strange she would have been interested in the cult long before her supposed life-changing event that led her into marrying Travolta.

Otherwise, it fits quite well.

califblondy said...

I don't think she's related to Robert Preston, wasn't he Gay like her current spouse?

Sherry said...

You guys got it. Kelly Preston. Although I'd be surprised that she didn't know that Johnny was queer (cue 80's song).

Gayeld said...

@Karen. I believe that money changed hands with the ex-husband, as well, to make sure the change to his IMDb page stayed put.

I have some serious dislike for Kelly Preston because of the callous way she treats her "less than perfect" children. I lost my daughter, Reese, to birth defects, there is nothing I wouldn't have done or paid if there had been anything that could have been done for her. Kelly pretends one child doesn't exist and denied another lifesaving medication in the new of her quack religion. I have nothing but contempt for her.

Jennifer H. said...

Kelly doesn't fit this at all.

Gayeld said...

new = name.

*sigh* Nothing like bad proofreading to take the wind out of your diatribe.

Sherry said...

CAblondie: I just watched The Music Man and did an IMDB on Robert Preston. I thought he was as well but apparently wad married for a long time. Not like THAT means anything. Ive never read anything about him being closeted so if anyone knows correct me please.

msgirl said...

Once again I feel like we're getting stuck on one answer, ignoring things that don't fit, without reviewing other options.

Del Riser said...

@Gayeld,so sorry for your loss, and I agree, Kelly has lived a life of lies, lies, and damned lies!

car54 said...

Well the title fits Kelly Preston, she really doesn't bear much of a resemblance to the young actress she was.

I wonder if she is happy how things turned out.

Sarah said...

My thoughts exactly!

Jessica said...

From a list of 10 most famous Hollywood party girls:
7. Heather Graham

Heather Graham keeps a long list of men in her life and some women also if the lip-locking adventures with Drew are any indication. Heather has had numerous sex shots and videos taken that appear all over the internet.

Her list of different boyfriends includes Russell Crowe, Heath Ledger, Ed Burns, Pete Yorn, and James Woods.

She was also on WWHL last night, triggered Enty's memory?

NomNom83 said...

"Advisors"? "No idea about her now husband"? "A match was made"?

This has Co$ written all over it. Preston and Travolta.

Onyx Loathes Hydrangeas said...

@unknown and dragon, Evan Rachel Wood dated her current husband for a year before dating Manson and then eventually got back with him. She was a party girl, but she's not this blind item. I think everyone got it with Kelly.

sifichick said...

I initially read this as Shannon Doherity. At least until it got to the part where it said she was a good actress.

L'auteur said...

@Jessica But Heather Graham has never been married, and the person in the blind item is married (and continues to be married)...

Amy Scott said...

Kelly Preston, who has been typecast is pretty much every role she had back in the day as the "hot bitchy girl" is what I would refer to as a "one trick pony" not a "very good actress."

megan00m said...

Problem...kelly preston is THE worst actress...

laura said...

Catherine zeta jones?

Candyland said...

I don't think this is right, but directionally some merit. Someone like Ally Sheedy? She dated Alec Baldwin, Eric Stoltz, Richie Sambora before getting married in '92. In the process of getting divorce. But, no idea about night that something bad happened. I'm feeling Brat Pack on this one, but don't know who...

ljsmed said...

@Gayeld, agreed!

Cecilia00 said...

Preston. You don't get with Charlie Sheen unless you know how to roll.

lazyday603 said...

So Ashton Kutcher, Jennifer Aniston and Katherine Heigl are all bad actors on the Enty scale but Kelly Preston is a good actress? The "good actress" line disqualifies Kelly Preston. She's a pretty girl & looks impressive in love scenes, but is not much else. No screen presence with her shirt on.

So I second the Even Rachel Wood guess. She really is a good actress.

stupor duck said...

Robin givens

crila16 said...

Kelly Preston and John Travolta met on set filming the movie "The Experts" in 1989...and married 2 years later...though, she did get proposed to by Charlie in 1989 and lived with him in from 89 - 90 when she was shot in 90. Then she married John in September 91.

Anna Nonymous said...

Kelly Preston for sure, she had some weird gun incident with Sheen. So you know she had to be a coke and party animal!!!! Any stories from back in the day RDJ?

Beth said...

@ gayeld,

I'm sorry you lost your daughter. I completely agree Kelly is the lowest life form if she didn't try everything she could to help Jet. If she passed off a disabled first son to her family, he may very well be in a better situation than to be with her. Hopefully they are helping him to lead a full happy life.

It angers me more when it is someone who has the resources to take advantage of every resource available.

Virginia Squatch said...

Someone said Katie Holmes earlier... any way this could be her? JJ might have proposed a lot. Although I can't think of the one bad thing that happened to her.

Topper Madison said...

Keely Preston doesn't fit at all. Just how did Kelly Preston and John Travolta's marriage "change their lives forever?" It sounds to me that there was some scandal or tragedy soon after the marriage--not the terribly heart-breaking death of a son a decade and a half later. Who got married and then ended up being implicated in a murder or something?

D Brown said...

See Travolta and Preston in the random photos!

crila16 said...

This is definitely Travolta and Preston...and the other one is Heigel. Both their photos are posted.

Star said...

Kelly Preston is not her real name, dont feel like looking it up right now, but now you know. My first thought was Drew Barrymore but not sure if that all fits her.

Just Another Girl said...

It's definitely Kelly Preston. You don't hook up with Charlie Sheen and get "accidentally" shot by him and not be into the same sh*t he was/is.

@Topper the way it changed her life was being introduced to Scientology and now being stuck in the religion.

Topper Madison said...

@Just Another Girl But how did it change BOTH their lives? I'm usually wrong on these things, but I don't see her as even being "B list by a thread." C- or D is more like it. The only things hinting at Kelly Preston IMO is that everyone is assuming the guy who wouldn't get married is Clooney, and that the bad thing that happened was the Sheen shooting--which when it happened only strengthened her popularity--not weakened it. (Charlie was completely blamed in the press at the time, and she was totally the victim.) If anything, they could/should/would have spun that "accident" into a sympathy press blitz for her, rather than tell her to...get married?? That's rather warped advice to give to someone who was just shot by their fiance. And there's a million other things that could be considered "bad things"--car accidents, overdoses, arrests, etc., that a marriage would take the unwanted attention away from.

I see the random photos, but I still have my doubts on this one.

kelly said...

Kelly Preston was terrific in Jerry Maguire.

I Don't like the way she's lived her life, but I just wanted to stand up a bit for her talent.

kelly said...

Plus, come on, she's named Kelly.
That's a plus.
:-)

iheartgoss said...

Soooo sorry @Gayeld! That is heartbreaking.

Tae Scott said...

Preston, it say "now" husband. Evan Rachel wood is too young for "back in the day". Heather graham isn't married. Noting Scientology is life altering plus Charlie shoot at Kelly.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

I don't think this is ERW. If it's true, Manson would be the guy who would never get married, but he was married at the time already (to Dita von Teese). I am thinking Enty means a true womanizer (Charlie Sheen for example).
Also Wood knew Jamie Bell for a very long time, she was with him before she got with Manson, after that ended she got back with him. So she does know him very good.

Also. this blind says it changed their lives forever: Wood was very well known before her marriage and Jamie Bell still isn't that famous (sorry Billy Elliot fans :P). Or Enty means the baby they are having.

I like the Kelly Preston and SJP guesses, but don't think SJP is a good actress (s1 of SatC she was somewhat okay, s6 she was hurting my eyes and common sense). I don't know about Preston's talent, so giving her the benefit of the doubt and say it is her.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

So, Kelly Preston, life changing experience: Charlie Sheen shot her (and was the one who proposed). Her handlers were like 'GIrllll you in trouble, you might die'. So she changed her game; married a closeted gay man. The 'would change their lives forever' could mean that Travolta's gay rumors got a bit more silent (until last year xD) and that she got more exposure out of it. Or it could be about their dead son. Or joining Scientology.

it took forever said...

I think this is Sarah Jessica Parker, the guy who she made propose Jon jon kennedy, changed her life forever she OD

Stephanie McDonald said...

What about Annette Benning? Could the guy no expected to marry be the man she ended up marrying? If so, maybe it's Annette and Warren Beatty.

Aoife said...

Kelly Preston was born Kelly Kamalelehua Smith. Her father died and she was adopted by her mother's new husband whose surname is Palzis.

VeeBee said...

Kelly was already a Scientologist when she was paired up with Travolta. The Co$ ran into a shit-ton of trouble in the 80s and 90s due to multiple lawsuits and media coverage. The church has always known abut Travolta's sexuality; it's how they have kept in the fold all these years. He was already drifting away and then in 1991 Time magazine did a huge expose on Co$. It was a fiasco for them. No one wanted to be affiliated with it. John would have bolted if not for his fear of being outed. And the church needed him to maintain his celebrity status. So in a win-win agreement Kelly and John were paired up. What's interesting is that Miscavige has allegedly been quite vocal about calling John a f***ot and talking really badly about him.

If you're having any Kelly Preston doubts.

Scallywag said...

Kelly Preston is a stage name.

Robert Preston was married almost 50 years. He was gay for pay - in Victor, Victoria.

There's been conjecture over the years that Kelly was Clooney's one who got away and she's why he won't get married again. Who knows.

SJP was supposedly RDJ's crutch; I don't think she was a big druggie herself.

KS said...

What about Kidman and cruise? Didn't she Marty him fairly quickly after meeting him? Did she have any famous boyfriends prior?

di butler said...

Back when he dated KPres, Sheen was most definitely not the marrying type. So, that fits.

Harmie said...

Ditto!
