Blind Items Revealed

November 5, 2012

People often say that Moonlighting was the most dysfunctional show that ever aired. Not so. The show that was the most dysfunctional was this sitcom that featured actors that are now A listers. Each week was like a Fleetwood Mac reunion. Prior to the shooting of the first season, this now A list actor (#1) was having sex regularly with an actress (#2) who was an A list tweener and is now a struggling, yet very rich C list actress. When the filming started, the lead actress (#3) in the sitcom who has always been a solid B-/C+ list actress started sleeping with one of the male leads (#4). This continued until our A list actor broke it off with his tweener and started having sex with the lead actress. Our A lister then got back together with the tweener but still had sex with the lead actress until she found out about it and then went back to having sex with the guy she was with in the first place. This cycle repeated itself for several  months. When the show went on hiatus during the first season, our A lister went his own way and never even spoke to the lead actress. Then, on the first day back of filming he wanted to start right where they had left off. At that point though, another future A lister (#5) joined the show and our actress (#2) started a relationship with him that lasted almost all season. Well, this caused our first A lister all kinds of ego bruising and he and the second A lister would often come to blows trying to show who had the biggest peen. It was a mess. Meanwhile, another actress (#6) on the show was having sex with the actor from the first season (#4)  until A lister #1 decided that he wanted to have her. He wooed her for weeks until she broke it off with #4 only to try and get him back when #1 dumped her after having sex with her. Things only got more complicated when in the next seasons there was  recurring actress (#7) who was the object of affection between the two A listers but ended up going out with #4. She did sleep with #1 though which eventually caused a breakup between herself and #4. In the final season of the show, weeks would go by with no one speaking to each other and other weeks it seemed like everyone on the show was sleeping together and then the following week everyone would have switched.

Two Guys A Girl And A Pizza Place
#1 - Ryan Reynolds
#2 - Melissa Joan Hart
#3 - Traylor Howard
#4 - Richard Ruccolo
#5 - Nathan Fillion
#6 - Jillian Bach
#7 - Tiffani Thiessen

is Traylor a typo, or is that actually a real person?

Just Another HR Lady said...

They were all young, not surprised, sounds like high school. lol

MerryB said...

That's her real name boo

sandybrook said...

Yikes! I'm sure booze and drugs were consumed during most of this sluttiness too.

Just Another HR Lady said...

@Warecat Traylor Howard http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005025/

skipper said...

Hope they all had fun!

V said...

Skipper, it sounds like toward the end they weren't having fun :(

MerryB said...

And congrats FSP! You got it right!!

WareCat said...

Oooh! now i kno who she is.
got it!

FSP said...

Nailed it!

skipper said...

@V You're right but like Just Another HR Lady said they were young...!! really sounds like high school teen drama!

skimpymist said...

I used to love that show. Don't remember a single thing about the show now but I think I mainly watched it to see ryan reynolds and MJH.

Dolphy said...

I loved that show and mainly got pulled into it because of Richard Ruccolo.

Renoblondee said...

I can't place Richard Rucculo at all.

flwrgurl said...

this is hilarious!

Ellen said...

I've never heard of this show.... But what a fun reveal anyhow!

ms snarky said...

RyRy is such a DB. I just can't like him even a little.

Tina Mallette said...

Just one problem I see no reference to Melissa Joan Hart being in the show neither on the show's IMDB page or her IMDB page. Wrong tweener?

Cast photo, the guy who is RR or NF is RR

the brunette is Suzanne Cryer does not appear to be any relation to Jon Cryer

Tina Mallette said...

I never watched the show so I have no idea if Melissa Joan Hart was on it or did she have it erased from her IMDB page but I just can't see RR schtupping Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

Laura said...

I was thinking that Tina, I don't remember her on that show.

Tina Mallette said...

Ah however RR did the pilot movie with her, Sabrina the Teenage Witch in 1996.

sandybrook said...

Tina it doesn't say the tweener was on the show just screwing around with ryan for lotsa the show. As did every betch in the show.

Orvilla Bedinbacher said...

i have never heard of this show!

Laura said...

I see now it says "prior to shooting the first season......."

Tina Mallette said...

Okay now I see it fits the blind says RR and MJH were schtupping BEFORE THE FIRST SEASON of the show.

Eros said...

Std city. Yuck

Seven of Eleven said...

FSP with the Little Orphan Annie decoder ring FTW!

MJH and Ryan Reynolds probably knew each other from their days on Nickelodeon.

FSP said...

Be sure to drink your Ovaltine!

TalksTooMuch said...

I don't remember Melissa John Hart on the show but I loved it, mostly because of Nathan Filion. I thought Traylor was great on it too but that Ryan Reynolds was just a cocky, skinny geek so it was a huge surprise when he buffed up so much for Blade 8000 or whichever

clearly4you said...

I would like to see a reveal like this for the original Melrose Place. I bet that's even messier.

Tara said...

So, wait, Melissa and Nathan dated? And then RyRy slept with Kelly Kapowski? This is like the reveal I've been waiting for for a while. This is juicy as hell.

crila16 said...

OMG!!! My head hurts after reading that. The drama.

tara17 said...

My main reaction was MJH and Nathan Fillion dated for a year?!!

TalksTooMuch said...

@tara17: I know, right? Talk about differents. Plus, who knew MJH was such a get?

caralw said...

I meant Nathan Fillion. How is an A lister? Never heard of the dude. That means little, no doubt, but he's no household name which means he's not an a lister.

Angela said...

@caralw
Your house is apparently not a Castle.
Fillion has been the lead on a hit network show for four or five seasons. That makes him A list for TV.

Freya said...

I remember this show and the person I remember is Ry-Ry.

Lola said...

@caralw...

Firefly? Castle? Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog? Percy Jackson? He has headlined a show with a rabid cult following and a very big major network hit. That, and he is rumored to be Joss Whedon's pick to play Antman.

A lister. (even if you haven't heard of him)

TalksTooMuch said...

Oh yes, can't forget Firefly, my parents make me watch that every.single.time I visit.

caralw said...

Working actor, I guess. That doesn't equal household name. He is not one.

Little Broken Bird said...

So glad I saw he reveal and not the blind, jeez complicated lol

westwingwolf said...

Ironically, Suzanne Cryer's character Ashley hooks up with both Berg (Ryan's) and Pete (Richard's) and yet she is no where on this list.

Sherry said...

carlw: I'm with you. I had zero idea who Nathan Fillion was either

Jon said...

I don't believe for a moment that Nathan Fillion is straight.

feraltart said...

I think Enty made a typo in the original blind & Nathan ended up sleeping with actress #3 for a year.

Iceberg said...

Please, please, please let Fillion have slept with Traylor instead of Sabrina. One is hot, the other is gross.

Fillion is A-list for tv by Enty's old definition. If you're the lead actor on a good-sized show that's been on for a certain number of years, you get A-list for TV, regardless of general name recognition.

Cee Kay said...

1) I hate that Ryan Reynolds is such a tool.

2) Nathan Fillion is a whole lot more than just a "working actor". Stop being so stubborn. Fine, you've never seen or heard of ANYTHING he's ever done. Maybe you're the problem.

3) Yeah, I'm having trouble with the idea of NF being straight too.

MerryB said...

Antman?! Hopefully not.

sifichick said...

I'm having a very hard time seeing MJH & NF being together. I know she'll bang anything that moves but I just don't see him doing her.

NF will always be straight... At least in my fantasies. That man is sex on a stick & by all accounts seems to be one of the rare nice guys in HWood.

Also just because NF isn't A list in your mind doesn't mean he isn't A list. He's been in 2 very hit shows. Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Castle. Then there's that little show that people are so fervently attached to that even 10 years later people are still banging on about bringing it back. (Yes I'm one of them. Browncoat forever!) It was a little show called Firefly.

M. Brown said...

In her book MJH writes about a "make out session" with RR on the set of the Sabrina movie. She had a bf at the time. It came across more as a one time thing than this blind describes.

VIPblonde said...

Fillion butt

MelOncholy Baby said...

Thank you, VIP, for all that you do!! :D

NF...I'm so old and decrepit, I remember him banging Dorian Lord on "One Life to Live."

sandybrook said...

Yeah Vickie's son which made him family and she married him (Dorian the first cougar 55-60 y/o., shithead about 21.) :)

MelOncholy Baby said...

Get it, Dorian! ;)

Angie said...

Captain Mal, the finest butt in the 'verse!

I adore you, AnnaLynne.

TalksTooMuch said...

Thank you VIP!

Della said...

This rating system is screwed up. I have only heard of 1/2 of these people. I looked at the imdb page for all and don't remember any of the others.

1, 2, and 7 are the only ones I have heard of.

Sandy said...

And yet it was SUCH a crap show! Wow.

Rach Around said...

Middle name "Trash"?

Nutty_Flavor said...

Agree with the comments about Fillon not being A-list. If cult fame was the same as actual fame, Captain Beefheart, Frank Zappa and Mamie van Doren would be the greatest artists of the 20th century.

Traylor Howard went to the Elizabeth Olesen School of Visible Nose Jobs. Class president Ashlee Simpson. Homecoming Queen Tyra Banks.

di butler said...

Congrats to you and the others who broke it down, only missing the name of the Tweener. Nailed.

Henriette said...

Fillon is not A list. A LOT of people do not know who is or can place him. More people know David Duchovny (sp) than him.

NaughtyNurse said...

I liked that show...guess the actors did, too!

Mary Anne said...

I totally forgot about this show, but I remember it being ABC's answer to Friends.
