Blind Items Almost Revealed

January 28, 2013

This actress is a solid B lister. After years of being an almost A and years being a C and close to being forgotten, she has pretty much solidified herself in the B range. Back in the day when she was A list she made a huge mistake and it nearly cost her a career. It took a long time for her to bounce back from that mistake and she thinks about it all the time. She loves being famous. She loves it more than anything and she knows that she needs to act to be famous. She does not want it to go away again. On the set of her latest show she met a guy and one thing led to another and our married actress has pretty much given up on her marriage and loves being with this actor who is not as well known as her, but is ten years younger and she thinks she is in love. The dilemma is that people actually love her husband. Throw in the fact she has a child or two or three and she sees herself being blasted by everyone for having an affair and her career in the toilet again. She wants to see if her show is a hit before making a decision about whether to take everything public. She has done subtle things like stopped wearing her ring and getting her own place, but her husband is such a nice guy that he just focuses on the child(ren) and lets her do what she wants to do. He won't blab or sell a story. He will just keep raising their kid(s) like he always has.

SMG and Freddie Prinze

Interesting guess, Cheryl. What is her connection to Kate B?

texas rose said...

Keri Russell, SMG, and Claire Danes were popular guesses on first blind. At least clue is not Tenuous connection to Kevin Bacon.

MeanieReese said...

Oh, come on, knock it off with the ALMOST reveals.

Topper Madison said...

I read it as the Felicity chick, just because of the haircut scandal and I heard she was in some new show. I don't know if she fits any of the other clues.

steph said...

The problem I have with these "Almost Reveals" and "Tenuous Connections to X" is that in my mind, the X is the person in the blind.

If Enty is trying to get around legal loopholes, he may have created other ones.

Years down the line it will still be firmly in my mind that the subject of this blind is Kate Beckinsale, even though it isn't.

texas rose said...

Meanie- clever ploy to recycle blinds and get twice the traffic. Not a fan either.

NaughtyNurse said...

Yes! It's Keri Russell!! I couldn't figure out what big mistake Sarah had made that put her career in the crapper. Keri had that hideous, "Pat-from-SNL" haircut!!

Unknown said...

If it's Keri Russell, connection to Kate Beckinsale would be Scott Speedman, who starred in both Felicity & Underworld.

debbie said...

Clare Danes was in Brokedown Palace with Kate B

debbie said...

Which is more than just a tenuous connection, technically

texas rose said...

Unknown - that does sound just tenuous enough +1.

NaughtyNurse said...

Scott Speedman is the connection between Keri and Kate. He was Keri's man in Felicity (and in real life for a while, I think), and he co-starred in Underworld with Kate.

Unknown said...

Dear fake Enties,

please stop these almost reveal things. there is no need to recycle stuff if you don´t have new one.

sure it´s a strain to come up whith up to 10 blinds a day, but hey, just reveal a C-Z+++ reality star blind that no one cares about anyway.

let it be easy reading.

thank you

:-)

NaughtyNurse said...

Oh, sorry, Unknown! I didn't see your Scott Speedman post!

Lucas said...

Isn't a "tenuous connection" kinda like playing Six Degrees? You could solve every blind on the site with "Tenuous connection to Kevin Bacon".

timebob said...

Claire had an affair with Billy Crudup while he left a very pregnant Mary Louise Parker for Claire.

Claire's career did take a hit. But bounced back with Homeland.

But we all know Claire cheats already.

Simon said...

The almost reveals are becoming common and really annoying...

Violet said...

I'm in the uk and have no idea who Keri Russell is - so I just googled her and she sure fits the blind apart from the fact that her husband is a carpenter so presumably an unknown - so why would the general public love him ? Or is there something about him that I don't know?

Kassandra said...

It can't be Keri Russell...there is no one on the Americans that is "not as well known as her" (i.e. he's been in some things and has at least face recognition) and 10 years younger.

On the other hand, SMG is in "The Crazy Ones," and her co-star James Wolk had a major character arc on Mad Men last season. he is roughly 10 years younger.

I don't know what SMG's tenuous connection is to KB, though. i'm sure there's a website out there that would tell us...

hothotheat said...

Can't be Claire, her show isn't new and is clearly a hit.

I think this is Felicity.

hothotheat said...

^Keri Russell...

Unknown said...

No worries, NaughtyNurse, we are on the same wavelength! I didn't know they might have dated. He is hot!

Kassandra said...

Hah! www.oracleofbacon.org does allow you to put in two actors to see their "tenuous connections."

Here is the one for SMG to Kate Beckinsale: (don't know how to make it clicky) http://tinyurl.com/mrhmwue

They are connected through Kevin
Durand who made a movie with both KB and SMG.

Cheryl S said...

Naughty Nurse, I'm not sure what the connection to Kate B is, but I came up with a blank, thinking of anyone else.

childeroland said...

Doesn't almost everyone on Earth have a tenuous connection with Kevin Bacon?

The Real Dragon said...

OMG I love 6 degrees of separation.

I down with Keri Russell

gypsygirl said...

She was in cruel intentions with ryan philippe who was in.54 i think with kate beckinsale(orbwas she in.last days of disco...?)

lostathome said...

If its Claire, why cheat on Hugh Dancy??? Dumb.

Cee Kay said...

If it's SMG, what mistake almost cost her her career?

Jennabean said...

Hey entry maybe it wouldn't be so disappointing if you called them hints instead of almost reveals?? That said love this site on weekends most suck

Bangagong said...

I don't think it's Keri Russell either. Just as Kassandra said, there isn't anyone who fits in the cast of The Americans that would fit the clues for the new lover. In fact nearly everyone on that show is older than Keri.

bellaluna said...

Count me in as one of those irked with the whole "partial reveal." Either reveal it or leave it a blind.

That being said, I do kinda like the Scott Speedman guess, but has anyone thought of Jennifer Garner? She & Ben have 3 kids.

Hegg said...

We already knew this was Keri Russell before . Just do the full reveal.

bellaluna said...

Also, I like the SMG guess: she was the answer to a blind not too long ago about being a big fat meanie pants on Buffy, but I don't think FPJ is 10 years her junior.

Jake Snikies said...

Almost Reveals = having to read these long ass blinds all over again with no answer. STOP! I have have other stuff I'd like to do.

Also, didn't Amber Heard supposedly go on a rant about how incredibly dumb Liam Hemsworth was, when he tried to talk to her on the "Paranoia" set.

Jake Snikies said...

People don't "LOVE" Shane Deary" ( Keri's husband ) or "Hugh Dancy ( Claire's husband ). Probably not them.

professionelle said...

What about Katherine Heigl? Big career mistake was leaving Grey's Anatomy, has a new show starting soon and her husband is a singer with a strong fan base?

Sandy said...

SMG, James Wolk, Freddie Prinze Jr.

Wonder what the big mistake was? SMG did fool around with David Boreanaz on Buffy and he was married at the time (she wasn't). I doubt that it would have cost her career though.

Whomever said...

People do love Hugh Dancy, especially Hannibal fans. No one knows who Keri's husband is, and there's no one younger than her on her show to be having an affair with.

I can't think of an actor on homeland who is 10 years younger than Claire danes though, that she'd be hooking up with.

Sf said...

The Kerri Russel connection to Kate Beckinsale would be Scott Speedman in Underworld. :)
