Blind Item #9

This B+ list mostly movie actress is scared of being cut off so her dad thinks she has a boyfriend. She even spends the night with him in the same bed when visiting the family. Even her sister doesn't know the real truth because the sister would love to cash in double the inheritance.

Who wld be so mean to their sister? Bad karma!

trainrides said...

This sounds like a romcom plot. Debra Messing's The Wedding Date minus the inheritance and if the boyfriend is an escort.

Nobody in my life has been as evil to me as my sister

So the B lister is gay pretending to be straight to please daddy?

mrjack said...

Dammit VIP! The one time I thought I had it and was going to be first! My guess too. The Mara sisters were at the premiere of Her.

mrjack said...

That was probably in the DM as well which was how Enty got the idea but I refuse to check that right-wing rag on principle.

tamilea said...

Yup,that Mara football money.

Zelda Zonk said...

I thought Rooney had an affair with Daniel Craig

mrjack said...

@Zelda - I read (I think it was a Lainey blind) that she was sleeping with the director of TGWTDT and they were super creepy obsessed with each other. I suppose this blind could be about Kate Mara. She has a boyfriend, Max Minghella (whom I know nothing about).

MontanaMarriott said...

Had no idea the Mara's came from money. Where is their money from?

Meatros said...

Their grandfathers (or something like that) own two football teams. I thought that there were a chit-ton of offspring though, so any inheritance would be a small one.

Max Minghella has been in a ton of movies. He's a very good actor. Art School Confidential, The Social Network, Elvis and Anabelle, 10 Years. His dad was the late British director Anthony Minghella. His older sister is head of production at Sony.

Art Rooney was the founder/owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Wellington Mara was the owner of the New York Giants. I believe their mother is a Rooney and their father is obviously a Mara. NFL franchise values are approaching the 1 billion dollar mark these days.

mrjack said...

@Lazyday - Thanks.

If anyone cares, this is the blind I was talking about which is popularly believed to be about Rooney Mara and David Fincher. I don't know if anyone else follows Lainey but she may even have revealed this at one of her Smut Soirées.

sandybrook said...

How dare any of you question VIP! Could Kate black mail her sister, they barely speak to each other right now.

Iceberg said...

Could be Kate Mara? Or is she not mostly movie because of AHS?

sandybrook said...

she can have the 2:30 blind on Friday but Im taking it on Mon-Thurs, :)

mrjack said...

I think Kate is mostly TV. She's a regular on House of Cards and she's done loads of TV. I remember her as the gay cheerleader girlfriend on Nip/Tuck.

NomNom83 said...

Obviously someone who comes from bigger money than acting money.

Not Rooney or Kate Mara, though. They are only two of four siblings. If one of them got kicked out of the will, the other would only receive an additional 8% (going from getting a 25% share to 33%). This blind would assume that all the money is coming from one source who controls all funds, whereas the Mara family is wealthy on both their mother's and father's side (so all grandparents and parents would have to cut off for it to really be a threat).

Besides, I would find it highly irregular for the Mara kids to not already have trusts already set up for them. You and me and every other plebe gets whatever scraps are left over when Peepaw kicks the bucket, but in families like this one, that is locked down and secured at birth. So unless Daddy was looking down at his precious new baby and told his lawyers to set aside X million for her -- unless she turns out to be a lesbo, natch -- I find this one hard to believe for Kate or Rooney.

Neither Rashida Jones (Quincy Jones) nor Julia Louis Dreyfus (heir to $3 billion, give or take a billion) fit the clues.

Of course, Enty could just be shit at math and hyping up the drama all for a "Guess who's gay?!" blind. Woulnd't be the first time.

mrjack said...

@NomNom83 - Julia Louis Dreyfus is famous for SNL, Seinfeld, The New Adventures of Old Christine and now Veep. Definitely mostly TV. Enty probably made this up but I think it's supposed to be about Rooney M. How would he know what bed this person sleeps in? Were his "spies" hiding under the bed? I though rich people kept their shit tight. Can't imagine someone was just gabbing about this situation.

HolidayinCambodia said...

The Mara family owns the New York football Giants, which is worth over a billion dollars.

And I fucking hate the Giants. Go Eagles!

IAMALEX said...

don't you think either of the mara sister's have their own money at this point? not them

Marybel said...

What about the Mamet sisters?

B. Profane said...

Dreyfus isn't in line to get anywhere near her father's whole share of the Dreyfus fortune. She may well inherit less than a billion.

As to the Mamet's, to quote Sherwood Anderson, "You can make a killing as a playwright, but you can't make a living." There just isn't that much money in writing scripts for off-Broadway plays and indie films. David Mamet's comfortable but hardly wealthy.

di butler said...

Yeah, this is written as the Maras, not the Mamets. The Maras money is in the billions, and while not poor, @B Profane, Mamet has a net worth of approx 20 mil, so not a lot for an acclaimed director and a celebrated playwright.

bellaluna said...

I'll take Kate Mara over Rooney any day! She was also in Shooter with Mark Wahlberg and at least 5 other big names, and she was great in Transiberian!

Monica said...

Ashley Judd!

bellaluna said...

Kate, that is.

Gayeld said...

@Sarah. True facts.
