Blind Items 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.

I love these "CDAN/ Enties HATERS SDSTFU" moments where the Entie's BI is revealed as truth.

msgirl said...

The Enty hate for her is so strong it's hard to know what the truth is.

EllenPo said...

Not buying it

Sugar said...

Today's CDaN is brought to you by Keri Russell. . .

Meanie Rhysie said...

Someone, please, tell me the "big mistake" isn't about that stupid haircut fuss so many years ago?

She always got on my nerves. I'm in the minority on that, I think. lol

People that love to be famous are obvious. They call the paparazzi when they go for a coffee, they are on every talk show, they show up on web sites all the time. KR never does. I think Enty's just got it in for her

saycheese said...

So who's the guy? what actor on the show is 10 years younger?

jodi benton said...

her husband is beloved? the public doesn't even know who he is.

this is probably a case of enty trying to fit someone that is in the new into an old blind item

sandybrook said...

Well at least s/he isn't slamming Kelly Clarkson today. POOR KERI (who is so very.)

Violet said...

I'm always amazed when people say it was the haircut that almost ruined her career. I'd have thought if you were good enough such frippancies wouldn't matter. But then I remember Jennifer Grey and her nose.....

skimpymist said...

Oohh I remember SMG and freddie were popular guesses along with kerri.

LottaColada said...

I've never been a big fan, meh.

sandybrook said...

Rhysie the curls made Keri extremely popular and she stood out. Cutting them off changed her appearance drastically and she lost her popularity and her show. Personally I thought the curls made her look beautiful and fit her face and the new haircut made her look terrible.

elan said...

It's get Keri Russell day today. I can hear Kelly Clarkson's sigh of relief from here.

Meanie Rhysie said...

LOL @elan No kidding!

Hair grows. I never understood that...hair grows back-well, for most of us! It just seems like a silly reason to lose popularity. I could see if she's jacked up her face with plastic surgery. Hell, she could'a worn wigs til it grew out. lol

Sugar said...

different!

Grey said...

This blind doesn't make sense. Whos the guy? Keri is 37 and there is no one on the Americans (main or recurring) who is in their mid to late 20s.

Karen said...

Reading the comments from the original blind are interesting. Keri Russell was a popular guess, but it still comes back to the bit about people loving her husband. Shane Deary? Who?

@jodi benton, I think you're right that the Enties are just throwing Keri Russell in as a reveal. Six months from now when someone else announces a separation, it'll be re-revealed with a new name.

Dandy said...

I love her. She definitely has not been a fame whore and I hope she does well.

sandybrook said...

I imdb'ed the show and cant really find an actor to fit the age difference

AKM said...

Who the hell is her husband?! I can't even name him, so how "loved" is he really?!

Taking this, along with everything here, with a grain of salt...

auntliddy said...

OOOO, I hope its the actor who plays her husband on the Americans! They have hot chemistry together. Didnt know she loves being famous tho.

FrenchGirl said...

1/ Russel is pretty low-key
2/what is the huge mistake? please not to cut her hair?!
3/ who is her husband yet? the uber-loved but totally unknown Shane Deary!?? (so logic)
4/ who is the 10 younger younger co-star? because no co-star fits!Rhys has the same age

of course ! (roll eyes)

dishy said...

I live in Brooklyn near Keri Russell and have run into her numerous times. She is the sweetest person - we now say "hello" and I even complimented her on "The Americans" and she seemed very interested in what I thought. I don't know what she did to Enty - ridiculous!

elan said...

The blind just says the actor is someone she met on the set of her latest show. Since no actor on the show seems to match up age wise with the blind (10 years younger than Keri), perhaps he temporarily worked making a guest appearance or two or was just visiting.

Kassandra said...

Everything fits but "The dilemma is that people actually love her husband."

Her husband isn't known or loved. But that could be a cod-piece to avert attention.

This BI better fits SMG, not Keri.

elan said...

dishy, with rare exception, The Enties clearly have a lot of animosity towards celebs in general.

Vera L- said...

Maybe her family loves her husband?

Vera L- said...

Or, work with me, his name is Deary. which is affectionate. ergo "loves"

yeah, I'm reaching.

Lydia Bennett said...

I'm thinking that when he says "everyone loves her husband," he's referring to family and friends, not the public.

Karen said...

@Lydia Bennett, but wouldn't you assume that a person's family and friends love him unless it's noted that they DON'T?

elan said...

To clear up the who is her husband question, from Wiki: Russell and Shane Deary, a carpenter she met through mutual friends, married on February 14, 2007.

Since this blog is about show business, I take the "people actually love her husband" statement to refer to industry people he's met through Keri and become friendly with.

I totally thought this one was Claire Danes.

shopgirl said...

I'll go back into my cupboard after this but what Day was this person I've never heard of A-list?

crila16 said...

Is this like Kerri Russell bashing week or something? All her BV's are being revealed.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Rumor has it the reason Keri cut her hair in 1999 was that she demanded a huge raise for the second season of Felicity. It was a Friday when they said no, because let's face it, her show wasn't exactly as big a hit as Friends. When she showed up to work on Monday, her hair was gone. There was major freakout all to way up to the head of Warner Bros. television.

AppleThief4Elliot said...

It seems to me that Enty(s) get a bit of gossip, and make a blind out of each detail. We wind up with four meh reveals, sometimes all on the same day like today.
Because mo pageviews, mo better, I guess.

torie grant said...

All these Keri apologists no one knows what goes on behind closed doors. We all have our public face as well as a private one. And no one knows what truly goes on in a relationship. Look at Nigella everyone thought she had a happy home. How wrong were we?!

schneefloeckli said...

The haircut was written into the show. It wasn't her idea and it's even on camera: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAN8CYF5esE

B. Profane said...

The guy who played Amador on The Americans was portrayed as being significantly younger than Russell's character, even though the actor is the same age as her. So that may be who this Enty is referencing, and the "scandalous" aspect might be that the guy is black, not that he's actually younger than her.

That being said, this BI seems bogus because The Americans is a niche show on a second-tier cable network and will never be a big hit. Even Russell has to know that. I like it but the target audience for 80's-era spy-spy melodrama is very small.

BTW, the portrayal of espionage tradecraft on the show is quite accurate.

Hegg said...

Most of us guessed her. The whole hair incident.
I've been watching The Americans and while it is a neat concept, I find her to be the weakest part of the show. I don't buy her in that role at all and I don't see the chemistry with her onscreen children.

keetz4 said...

I know very little about Russell but I remember how when she first revealed her relationship with her husband, people commented on how likeable he is. Just looking at him you get a good vibe.

Cee Kay said...

You know, considering how many people in Hollywood will sell out their "friends" and family for a buck or a snort or a moment in the spotlight, you'd think that if a girl found a good guy who treated her well and kept his mouth shut she'd be happy just to keep him and settle down.

Anna Katherine Nonymous said...

jo said...

schneefloeckli - no they HAD to write it into the show BECAUSE she already did it.

PJJ said...

Yep. This "reveal" is bullshit.

Tea Lady said...

Huff post reported a couple of days ago that she & hubby split, so not thinking the reveal was BS....
