Blind Item #10

This actor was A list back in the day. Mostly television. One hit network show to his credit. His name now has become a joke and his family even more so. Apparently he abandoned a child after a one night stand with the mom. No child support and no communication. Just a one time lump sum payment to the mom to go away. Now the kid is back and she says the mom from the one night stand was our actor's married co-star who divorced shortly after the baby was delivered. This is not Old Hollywood. Just big hair time period Hollywood.

Johnson or Hasselhoff

No real clue. Before my time, I think.

PowerhouseMe said...

Jesus Christ, this is exactly why I wait until evening to check comments. What?

Sugar said...

But Hasselhoff had 2 hit show! Night Rider and Boobwatch. Don't you forget about Night Rider, Kristin!

texas rose said...

Hasselhof?

Merlin D. Bear said...

The plot from "Soapdish" ?

Debbie Taylor said...

'Big hair time' - the 80's time period?

Kristin said...

"Shazboot!" - @TTM

I have no idea what a Night Rider is. Is it porn?

Sugar said...

Not that I'm insulted, but did you just call me TTM? Shazbot!
Kit was the real star of the show

Erin said...

Alan Thicke and....

texas rose said...

Sugar - maybe enty is being sneaky- Baywatch was only on network 1 year and then canceled due to poor ratings (not a hit), it then went into syndication and caught on worldwide but not on network tv.

Lorenzo Lamas

Candyland said...

Knight rider starred Hasselhoff and his talking car, Kit. They were crime fighters. Yes, I watched it. Sue me!

Sugar said...

Shit! Shazbot! Just now realized it's Knight Rider! Not Night Rider!!!

Kara said...

Oooohhhh I like the Lorenzo Lamas guess. Just because his "family" is embarrassing. I'm not sure he's that much of a joke though. And the problem with Hasselhoff is, that while he might be a joke, has anyone from his FAMILY embarrassed themselves?

Kristin said...

@Sugar Shaz-Boot. Bc TTM is Canadia- never mind.

@Texas rose knows The Baywatch. :)

sandybrook said...

Shazbot Sugar!

TalksTooMuch said...

I'm confused...but Knight Rider was the shite! Just hearing the theme song I would get SO excited! Wait, I get it!

Queenie said...

Hulk Hogan for Superstars of Wrestling (or whatever it was called)

sandybrook said...

If this is Lorenzo Lamas the co-star would be an actress named Ana Alicia who played his wife. She is married for about 20 years and has a son.

Renoblondee said...

Yep. @Debbie

Karen said...

Can't be Ana Alicia; the actress in the blind got divorced shortly after the baby was born. She's never been divorced.

Snapdragon said...

KITT, man--Knight Industries Two Thousand--not Kit. :)

texas rose said...

Seems like there is enough clues here so we should be able to detective this shit out damn it.

Sugar said...

Shazbot, Snappy! I can't get anything right today in this blind!!!

KITT is the SHITT

Sugar said...

Where is our lead detective, Dragon???

Unknown said...

I liked the Alan Thicke guess since his son (family) is rather embarassing, but the only married co-star that I can think of was Joanna Kerns, and she appears to have divorced her first husband a year before 'Growing Pains' started.....

Kristin said...

What about David Cassidy/Susan Dey?

She had a kid during the show, divorced a couple years after.

Seven of Eleven said...

There was some big hair back in the Growing Pains days.

texas rose said...

Unknown - I saw that too. If Hasselhof can't figure out costar but maybe not him. Been trying to look at A list tv stars from 70s and 80s and try to find someone with embarrassing family (could be kids, siblings) who is a joke themselves. Haven't been able to find a good fit.

Karen said...

@Kristin, it was more like four years later so I wouldn't count that. Otherwise I liked your guess!

texas rose said...

Tough part of blind is clue that family is bigger joke/embarrassment than the former A star.(but should really make it easy to guess once you hit on form A list tv actor with one network hit from 70s or 80s)

Montanagirl said...

Jack Wagner. His hit show being the soap he was on forever. General hospital I think. Remember not too long ago he " found out" he had a daughter and it was in all the papers. She went to a concert of his. I think this happened while heather locklear and him were hooking up.

rhinovodka said...

guessing this was from the 80's since that was the era of big hair. Alf is my guess.

warmislandsun said...

Don Johnson. Dakota and Melanie are both jokes.

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

Here's a list of shows by date. I went through the 80's, late 70s and early 90s, couldn't think of anyone that fit, with regards to family that's an embarrassment. Maybe one of you guys luck.

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

^ Maybe one of you guys will have better luck. D'oh!

8=====D - KermitGosnellKnobJockey said...

Thicke's dad?

8=====D - KermitGosnellKnobJockey said...

F word. Already said and debunked.

NomNom83 said...

Thinking it's a Dynasty/Falcon Crest/Knot's Landing/Dallas kind of show. No time to do the research. I leave it to you fine people.

texas rose said...

warmislandsun - good guess but none of his female costars on Miami vice had kids.

Kara said...

I like Don Johnson. He's been on some shows like Eastbound and Down, but before that all he was ever really known for was Miami Vice. But that was one really famous show. And if you throw in Melanie as family???? Plus, there was a recent blind about him being a skeevy dick.

It sure does seem like the Hoff but I don't know that his family is a joke.

Maybe David Cassidy - he's a mess and his mom's oversharing is a joke.

The clues should make this one easy peasy but it isn't.

Gypsytrill said...

Bill Cosby?

COULD BE AN INTER RACIAL HOOK UP? BEING THE DIVORCE HAPPENED SHORTLY AFTER THE BABY WAS DELIVERED, IT COULD HAVE BEEN A BLACK KID TO A WHITE ACTRESS?

TalksTooMuch said...

I DON'T KNOW BARLEYE AND HACKGNAR, MAYBE? INTERESTING...

Jacq said...

It isn't written in English. I think.

BaronessOrczy said...

Nash Bridges managed to stay on the air for awhile.

Jaiden_S said...

I like the Lorenzo Lamas guess.

Renoblondee said...

OMG @TTM THAT MADE ME LOL HARD!

Kimba said...

DITTO FUNNY TTM.

TalksTooMuch said...

LOL sorry, couldn't resist

Low Key said...

WHY IS EVERYBODY SHOUTING!?!??!

Dexamyl said...

Lamas sounds right to me. His dad, Fernando, was a long- running SNL joke and his son fucked his stepmother, Lorenzo's then-wife.

Melissa said...

Lorenzo Lamas and Kristian Alfonso.

Aoife said...

Dexamyl please explain. Lorenzo Lamas is Fernando Lamas son with Arlene Dahl. Just need clarification on who did what to who. Thanks.

Unknown said...

Melissa, it would totally fit except IMDB says Kristian Alfonso's child born in 1990 is a boy. The blind makes it sound like child is a girl.

Andrea said...

Wayne Rogers with Melinda Naud as the mum.
