Today's Blind Items - The Break She Got And Lost

This C+ list mostly television actress who has been in Academy Award winning films and is on a hit network show right now which is kind of similar to another network show had a touch of scandal in her past. She got a huge break in a very hit network show and then got into a huge fight with this B list mostly movie actress after they slept together. It was decided that for the best, our actress would leave the show and that she would be allowed to save face saying it was for something else. Karma caught up with the other actress in a very big way though. Since that time, our actress has not been involved with anyone and tries to stay to herself, although there are rumors that she and her co-star have been seeing each other off set too.

Madeleine Stow on Revenge?

Kristin said...

I should've taken the blue pill...

SkittleKitty said...

Madeleine Stowe fits some clues, but has been married to Brian Benben of that long-ago hit HBO show I can't remember forever.
ER cycled through a lot of actresses when it was on. I'm wondering if the current show is a spin off and that's why it's "kind of similar." NCIS LA or a CSI or ?

bekH said...

Ellen Barkin? *I have put no research into this guess

MontanaMarriott said...

Everyone I can think of is married, MS, Mary McDonnell. Still hunting though

SkittleKitty said...

It seems like a 'very hit network show' that stars/starred a 'B list mostly movie actress' would be much easier to find than this....

MontanaMarriott said...

GOT IT, I think, LUCY LIU, starred in CHICAGO, KILL BILL and has had several tv credits to her name and very single

mrknowitall said...

I think it's Erika Christensen

Cecilia00 said...

@Montana - Lucy is a great guess. But who is the other actress on a show that karma caught up with? Portia DeRossi was on Ally McBeal but what karma caught up with her??

SkittleKitty said...

I think Erika's a good guess, as is Lucy Liu, but what would be the huge break in a very hit network show either left/was forced off of?

Just Browsing said...

Sorry in advance for going OT, but Ted Casablanca tweeted that he would "be back" the middle of June. The non-compete agreement must be about to expire.

crila16 said...

Jennifer Esposito...Blue Bloods. Academy Award winning movie was Crash.

Have to do more research to see if she completely fits though.

Derek Harvey said...

kerri washingston---jango unchained

Cathy said...

@crila - but this actress has had another network hit since leaving the one that gave her the huge break.

GossipFan said...

Claire Danes? (Homeland, My So Called Life, Romeo and Juliet)

I'll admit I don't know if she's single though.

Ms. Good Intentions said...

@ Just Browsing...thanks for the update! I miss Ted. He was my first gossip site ever so I have a soft spot for him.

Lizzeh said...

She's married to Hugh dancy from hannibal

crila16 said...

Ok. Lucy Liu was in Chicago, which won an academy award. She got her break on Ally McBeal, and did leave the show. She was in Cashmere Mafia, Southland and is now in Elementary...I'm clueless as to who the other woman would be. I don't know. I'm confused.

Cathy said...

Homeland isn't a network show and My So Called Life was canceled; Claire Danes didn't leave it.

phoenix said...

@Just Browsing, great news. I've missed hearing about what all those wonderfully wacky nicknames I grew so fond of are up to.

Cathy said...

@crila - I didn't realize that Lucy Liu left Ally McBeal before it ended; the other woman could have been Portia.

In Elementary, there aren't really any other female regulars...

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Oh wait.. which actress had karma get up with her? The B lister or the C Lister?

Since it says 'the other actress'. Which one?

Jennifer Esposito could also be with the show with Charlie Sheen and the mayor (forgot the title). She left all of a sudden, no idea who the other actress would be, besides Heather Locklear, but she is not mostly movies, she is tv.

Renoblondee said...

Thanks @just browsing! Love me some Ted!
I feel like this blind should be easy, like we're missing the obvious. Hmmmm.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

*catch

Shit You Can't Buy said...

How I read it:

C lister was forced to leave after big fight. She stays to herself but there are rumors of her being with a co star.

B lister could stay on the show, but karma caught up with her eventually (show cancelled/drama in personal life/substance abuse issues??)

Derek Harvey said...

ITS KERI WASHINGTON---i love how people who dont post 24/7 get ignored-----not every blind is about white people (jokes)---but it fits the bill ----so colored this blind revealed

Cathy said...

Derek - people didn't respond because Kerry doesn't fit. She's way higher than C+ and she doesn't have a previous show that she was forced off of.

MM said...

How can Kerry Washington be C+ list if she's currently the star of a hit show? I'm guessing the actress in question is on a hit show right now, but is NOT the star.

msgirl said...

So far I like the Lucy guess best.

mynerva said...

Didn't Lisa Carson from Ally McBeal get into trouble for drugs? Could she be the other actress?

mynerva said...

Scrap that, she's not mostly movies

Snapdragon said...

@SkittleKitty -- "Dream On" was that show.

(As for guesses, I got nothin'.)

Derek Harvey said...

she is on a show called scandal---a copy cat show is called deception (which just got cancelled)----she was on boston legal and left before the series ended-----she has been in several acclaimed movies ---but never nominated for many awards considering her work---in terms of ranking who the heck knows how enty ranks people these days (he once ranked SEAN YOUNG as "about to become A list again"---and ranked Claire Danes as B list (who is A list)----and there has been lesbian rumors about Washington for years----

Derek Harvey said...

thats the best and most factual guess so far so deal with it

Tam-o said...

Long-time reader, first-time poster -- Howdy Y'all!

What about Jennifer Morrison? She was on "House", left, came back, then left again. She is now on "Once Upon a Time", which is like "Grimm". Now she is mostly movies, but minor characters. Co-star might be Olivia Wilde, who is now mostly movies.

Cathy said...

Kerry was on five episodes of Boston Legal - not exactly a huge break. And between Django and Scandal, there is no way she's C+.

Cathy said...

Wow, Derek - with an ego like that, you don't need our responses to stroke it.

River said...

Derek Harvey, saying things like "deal with it" is most likely the reason you're ignored.

skimpymist said...

@Derek Harvey you got zzzinged Lol. Stop trying to make Kerry fit cause she doesn't. Everyone knows she's Obama's mistress.

Aoife said...

My first guess was Elizabeth Shue now on CSI original flavor but I'm just throwing her name out there.

Luxie_poo said...

DEAL WITH IT YA'LL! I love the Lucy Lui guess. :-)

GuiltyPleasure33 said...

First time poster! Could this be an actress from LOST (title of post is "...AND LOST" and clue is "She got a huge break in a very hit network show"). So anyone who was on LOST that was in Academy Award winning films? Michelle Rodriguez (Ana Lucia) , Cynthia Watros (Libby) and Maggie Grace (Shannon) were killed off...

Sherry said...

Welcome Tam-o! I got nothing here but since Derek is so sure I don't wanna rock the boat.

CJ said...

I was all excited and proud of myself for figuring out Kerry Washington... but the comment about an actress being C+ and starring in a show does make sense.

Is Chloe Sevigny C+?

Derek Harvey said...

plus it says Oscar nominated FILMS (plural)not film. Lucy was only in Chicago. My troubled lesbian Keri (who I really like actually)was in King Of Scotland and Django---I agree she should rank higher that c+ but like I said sometimes entys rankings are messed and we all know that. So dont worry about my bruised ego cause it dont worry bout yours

Flora Goforth said...

@Derek Harvey so who was the other chick? Margo Martindale?

Cathy said...

@Derek - Lucy was also in Kung Fu Panda and Jerry Maguire. Plural enough for you?

Flora Goforth said...

NVM Derek I thought you were talking about 100 Center Street.

Derek Harvey said...

@Flora---i dont know---i just think its strange when people argue about who is right and completely dismiss another persons guess when 9/10 of the clues fit and the celeb ranking is the only shaky detail and celeb ranking is just a matter of opinion (and please spare me the opinions are like assholes saying---)what other show is like Elementary?

Derek Harvey said...

she was in Jerry Maguire for like 2 seconds and Kung Fu Panda is really grasping at straws (sometimes IMDB is not your friend)----give it up girl

River said...

BOW! BOW DOWN TO DEREK HARVEY!

libby said...

Lucy Liu.

Not ALL blinds are about non-Asians, whities!

Cathy said...

Jesus, Derek. Have you spoken to someone about your rage and jealousy issues? Serious question...

Derek Harvey said...

----sorry if i was being a jerk--I can be stubborn as a mule lol @ Libby---but Lucy Liu is such a go to guess all the time for these things-----and River whats your guess then, huh? @Cathy if this is to be revealed I will donate 50 bucks (kinda broke these days) to a charity of your choice if I am wrong

Donkey123 said...

i have been Ted C free since E! launched him. As soon as Twilight started, it was unreadable. I don 't miss him at all.

Derek Harvey said...

Cathy what "rage and jealousy issues" sometimes dialog does not come across the way it seems over the net----your the one making accusations about my character when I never said anything derogatory or rage filled to anyone--I'll keep the 50 bucks and seek therapy---any suggestions of a good one Dr. Cathy?---

Cathy said...

Perhaps I misinterpreted your comments, Derek. It seemed a little odd to me that you guessed someone that no one else thought fit the clues, then complained that no one responded to your guess, and then basically said that every other guess was inferior to yours (and that we should "deal with it").

ldylkng said...

Tam-o, Jennifer was my first thought also! Although can't think of any Karma going on for Olivia.

The Know-It-All said...

Kerry Washington and Monica Potter. Just because I want to imagine it happening.

so_forsaken said...

I kind of like the Jennifer Morrison guess, haven't there been blinds before about sexy shenanigans going on on the OUAT set? I could be mistaken....that said, I LOVE Ted C. and cannot wait for his return to gossip! I think that alot of the Twilight/Hunger Games etc love was because E! wanted gossip that would attract a lot of hits.

Cathy said...

Jennifer Morrison wasn't in any Academy Award nominated movies, though...

libby said...

Thank you for your apology, Derek. I am impressed. Manners on the internet! Hooray!

(Sorry we disagree on this blind.)

125records said...

"what other show is like Elementary?" Could be "Sherlock" on PBS, if PBS counts as a network in Enty-speak.

Cathy said...

For the record, I don't think it's Lucy Liu, but I don't think that Kerry Washington fits any better.

Nellie said...

I think this is Kate from NCIS. She was killed off. The boss was Lauren holly at the time.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

@Guilty, I thought of Lost too, but the Oscar-stuff doesn't fit:( I even thought of the woman who played Kate, but she wasn't killed off. I thought of her as the other actress who got karma, as in personal issues (a lot!) in her case. Think she was in a mental facility as some point and there are lots of rumors about her being crazy.

But like I said, the killed off actresses don't fit :(:(

I gotta go with Lucy L and Portia DeRossi (sp?)
PD career has all but stalled and if it wasn't for Arrested Development she would have vanished into thin air years and years ago.

kpist said...

to Shit you can't buy, the show with Jennifer Esposito and Charlie Sheen was Spin City

Tae Scott said...

Lucy lui make sense but Jennifer Esposito is golden.

Ot lawd I hope Ted don't come back all his blinds were about closet ppl and twilight n!gga ain't nobody got time for that.

Im team enty because Ted blind were made in creativity writing class.

Bacon Ranch said...

Derek Harvey is making my day.

So far he/she/shim? has

-gone off on everyone right out of the gate for not liking it's guess.

-made it clear that NOT EVERYTHING IS ABOUT WHITE PEOPLE

-offered to donate to charity if the guess is wrong (It's wrong Derek)

-rescinded said offer.

Make fun of annawhateverhernameisthisweek and the circle would be complete.

Deal with it

Chelle said...

I thought of this too, but Enty did mention the word "Scandal" so I thought it would be too easy. She was also in Ray FYI

Bacon Ranch said...

..oh and I think this was a back in the day sort of thing. Maybe a 90's, early 2000's show. Almost like Geena Davis on West Wing or something. (Not her, but trying to think of what B movie actress was on a series)

Momster said...

Sasha Alexander left NCIS to marry Sophia Loren's son and raise 2 kids with him--don't think she left because of a lesbian affair. Don't think she's been in an award-winning movie, either.

I thought of the Sherlock/Elementary connection, too. But Liu should be rated higher than C+, right?

And I thought WAshington has been the subject of several blinds involving her costar Tony Goldwyn.

beth said...

Derek -- My problems with the Kerri Washington guess: (1) What show is like Scandal? You say Deception, but that was actually a knock off of Revenge (the producers said as much) and it isn't like Scandal at all beyond both having Black female leads. (2) What show was her "big break" that she was booted off of? She was in 5 episodes halfway through the second season of Boston Legal. It was a supporting role arc, not in any way (a) a big break or (b) intended to be a permanent part of the show. (3) Who would the other actress be if it were Boston Legal? That show didn't have any mostly movie females leads AT ALL (forget rankings).

Also, I don't know if Lucy Liu is the correct answer, but Elementary is like Sherlock.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Didn't Lucy leave Ally McBeal to film Charlie's Angels? She did fight With Bill Murray a lot on that movie so the fighting part sounds a little like her.

brooklyngirl said...

The only person I think fits is Lucy, but I am not sure who the other actress would be..sometimes the ratings are off. I agree C+ seems low for her, I would think more B level.

Cathy said...

Not saying it's her (I don't have all the pieces), but how about Taraji P. Henson? She is in Person of Interest now, left Boston Legal before it ended and was in Benjamin Button.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

@kpist: Aaaaaah thank you!! I couldn't come up with the name, was too lazy to google xDDDD

Sian said...

Staying with Revenge... how about the English actres on it that played the Graysons PA - she isn't back next season

April Love said...

Ginnifer Goodwin. formerly on BIG Love with Chloe. The shows Grimm and Once Upon a Time. Also she was in Walk The Line, Oscar nominated.

bekH said...

@April FTW!!!

JohnR said...

April FTW except there are no rumors that she and her costar have been seeing each other off set too because they're openly seeing each other off set.

short le chic said...

The Know-it-all LOL!! I feel you:)

short le chic said...

@ Libby, I agree. Very classy, apologizing.

short le chic said...

I want it to be Kerry W because between her and Tony Goldwyn I don't know who I wanna do more. On the other hand I'd rip my own clothes off for Taraji. Girl is fiiiiiiiiiine!!!

Divingirl said...

Yea! I miss Ted

So Real said...

Taraji P. Henson for the C+
Kerry Washington for the B lister with rumors of co star affair.
*wishful thinking*
Porsha and Lucy sound more likely but "scandal" has been used in many Kerry Washington related blinds so I can see why the B list would fit Kerry......just can't place the C+ to go with it as Kerry allegedly likes her girls a lot lighter than Taraji.

PJJ said...

Kerry Washington is almost A list, if not already.The end.

Tae Scott said...

Okay Lucy fit all the clues she been in several Oscar nominated movies but who the B-list actress because Portia is a tv star and I looked at the ally Mcbeal cast women they all tv stars. Taraji make sense she been in hustle and flow and Benjamin button and she was on Boston legal for a little and so was Kerry Washington (5 episodes ill be it) Kerry is defiantly B-list mostly movie but what karma hit Kerry unless it she had to leave the show as well. Jennifer Goodwin don't have Oscar nominated movies. Ellen Barkins don't either and isn't a B-list movie actress. Claire is A-list. Esposito only did crash. @derek Harvey Kerry isn't a mostly tv actress tho. She could be the b-list actress tho.

kenba said...

Kristin Kreuk in Beauty and the Beast (with the other similar show being Teen Wolf)?

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Ginnifir wasn't kicked off Big Love, she stayed till the end, so that doesn't fit this blind.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

*Ginnifer

Shit You Can't Buy said...

What about Melissa leo? Was in All My Children as a breakthrough, now on Treme (HBO). 21 Grams as the oscar movie.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Or Amber Tamblyn; was in 2 Oscar Movies, first fame from General Hospital. Now on House MD.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Another actress took over Amber's role in GH.

Anna said...

I think Jennifer Morrison and Olivia Wilde fits the BI. BTW, I don't know a lot about JMo but she was in a movie that won the Oscar for make up (lousy I know, but still an Oscar).
And about Olivia Wilde, it wouldn't be surprising if she was seeing Maria Bello (costar in her new movie)
