Blind Items Revealed

April 3, 2013

This almost A list mostly television actor is back on television on a show. How long remains to be seen, but the other day he was telling a story about why he is such good friends with this former almost A list celebrity. It turns out one night he was going to commit suicide and she called him and stayed with him on the phone for 12 hours straight. He said that no one else has ever been so willing to help him and he credits her with saving his life.

Matthew Perry/Jennifer Capriati

Say it all the time, having a lot of money doesnt mean you are happy

Loopymommy got Perry, I got Capriati

How sweet. I do really hope he's on the right path now -- it's so hard to come back from feeling so lost that suicide seems like the only option.

Money has destroyed my relationship with my sons. They went wih their dad b/c he has money. I don't, so they ditched. Very had to get over it. And not one if my sons would ever spend more than 12 minutes let alone 12 hours in phone with me if I was suicidal(and I have been at times).

It's great she did that. She's got issues of her own, attempting suicide a few years ago herself.

Matthew Perry is an advocate for drug courts, which promote rehab instead of jail time for offenders. I believe Perry still fights his demons and addictions every day. Would love to see him do some work together with John Taylor (Duran Duran bass player) who is very willing to speak out about his own addiction and recovery in appropriate forums. Perry will be hosting for Piers Morgan on Monday, so it's one time I'll actually watch that show.

@FS, that's very interesting - I didn't know that. What a great way to make a negative into a positive.

@Serendipity, very sorry to hear about your sons.

Hopefully he can help her through the issues she has now. I remember seeing her at junior tournaments ( she was a year older than me and played up divisions). While I had the time of my life playing tennis, because my parents never pushed me or forced me to play, she was all business all the time. She didnt have a childhood. I played well enough to earn a tennis scholarship to college, but I would never have traded that for what she lived.

phoenix said...

Sorry to hear that Serendippity. Best wishes and hope your sons come to appreciate what matters more as they mature.

@serendipity- Our children can be our greatest joys and our biggest disappointments, can't they? All you can do right now is walk your own path the best way you know how. I do know your pain.

Thanks you guys. Such a nice bunch of people here. Hopefully time will improve it. I feel badly for Capriati, she was a mega talent and I think her dad/couch may have been really harsh as a parent. Hope she can sort through her issues. Always liked Perry and Capriati.

I like Chandler. I don't like his new show though. I tried to watch it once and it was just bad.
Same with Charlie Sheen and Anger management.
Both of those guys owe me money for my time. I charge 500 thousand an hour and accept paypal.
That was very sweet of her to do. That's a true friend.

2 people I couldn't care less about.

Thanks Cece. I will get through it, but it sucks really badly! I will love both my children always, even though we are very far apart.

just curious said...

Wasn't Perry the rumor of a dater rape charge back in college?

I do know that Jennifer dated porn star, Dale DaBone for a minute.

Bacon Ranch said...

Dale DaBone?
WHO thought that would be a good porn star name?

That's like going to a rave hosted by DJ Belly lint.

Serendippity do dah said...

Funny porn name!

Amy in MI said...

Capriati's dad was overbearing and your typical batshit crazy tennis dad. Her mom just went along with everything. He's up there with Jim Pierce ( Mary Pierre's dad), Damir Dokic ( worst one - Jelena Dokic dad) Bernard Tomics dad, Andrea Temisvari's dad, and current incarnations are Piotr Wozniacki and Yuri Sharapov ( although Maria cut him as a coach).

HudsonJoe said...

This is touching to hear in general; but especially because Jennifer has had so many issues of her own.

Bravura said...

Dude, you stole my rave name! I was gonna go with Star or Rainbow Sparkles but Dj Belly Lint had such promise.

Now if you excuse me, I have to go sob over my pony beads and UFO pants.

Charlotte. said...

@Serendipity, love and positivity to you! You'll always be their mother, no matter what.

Brenda L said...

Serendipity, they too will come to find out money isn't everything. I know you'll be there waiting for them when they realize the error of their ways.

Dingle Barry said...

How did you pull her out of your bag of tricks?

parissucksliterally said...

awww.....he could have called me. I would have saved him!

Renoblondee said...

Very sweet and kind!

AKM said...

"Wasn't Perry the rumor of a dater rape charge back in college?"

No. He didn't even go to college. He was going to go to USC but landed the Chaz part on "Second Chance."

As always, I love him. He is tied with Drew Carey as my ultimate celebrity boyfriend, period.

Samantha M. said...

I used to think that Dale DaBone looked like Jimmie Johnson. /OT

Anna Nonymous said...

I have a whole new respect for her and I will never forget this.
