Blind Items Revealed - Kindness

September 9, 2013

This B-/C+ list mostly television actress has been as high as a B when she was starring on that huge network television monster hit. Since then she has worked here and there and has been on a hit show but it was premium cable so not that many people watched. Anyway she used to travel extensively and with an ex, visited a town in Africa and met with some women there who said there was no school because they could not afford to pay for a teacher. Our actress has been paying the entire salaries for two teachers for five years now and also paid for a new school to be built and computers and internet. She has done it all herself and has not asked for any other help or contributions.

MISCH said...

I love her…..

Renoblondee said...

I love Lisa hard. And The Comeback was awesomer than awesome!

sandybrook said...

Yay Lisa!

nancer said...

i love her to death, and if you can, you must watch 'web therapy.' it's brilliant, original and hilarious.

RangersGirl said...

Awesome! No wonder she's the only person I liked from Friends.

msgirl said...

Never watched Friends, I thought it was kind of silly the one time I tried - granted I'm out of the demographic. Anyway she's the only one who has made an impression on me - Web Therapy is brilliant. It's hard not to believe Lisa is not that character. She seems very grounded and real.

Seven of Eleven said...

Aw, Phoebe!

texas rose said...

Did schwimmer die or something., Haven't heard anything from him in a few years.

SuSu said...

Love her and web therapy!

QueenAnne Guido said...

Love her. Hope her cat isn't so smelly.

Jessi said...

How was she only a B at the height of her fame On Friends? I would say all were A list at that time!

Just Another HR Lady said...

This is fabulous, go Lisa!

nora nader said...

Love her and her Web Therapy series on Showtime. She's hilarious!

Stepforded said...

I wonder if she's also the answer to a similar Blind, where a kid's parents could no longer afford tuition for their child - the one where the actress' child came home and told her the story about a kid in her class. Wouldn't surprise me.

We need a "like" button on this post!

Rhody said...

Web Therapy is hysterical. And if you go on youtube you can see the outtakes of the episode with Meryl Streep - those are the funniest clips ever!

Poni-Tayl said...

Mucho KUDOS to Kudrow!

feraltart said...

texas rose, Schwimmer directs a lot these days.

Simon said...

Love her. She was def A list though while on friends

fae girl said...

She was always my favo friend. Loved Phoebe & she's always seemed more 'normal' too now we know why. Niiiice one wish more ppl would do this stuff.

Alexa Rose said...

How kind of her.

MadLyb said...

She has the perfect career. She's recognizable, but not too famous, so she can keep it low-key, she has had steady work since at least "Mad About You", and she hasn't let fame go to her head. I love that she's the answer to this one. Good for her!

auntliddy said...

Love her and her ways. This is no bimbo .

Terri said...

Web Therapy is great, but I love her most for "Who Do You Think You Are". She's very friendly on twitter and I've had a few Twitter conversations with her!

Sherry said...

Aunt Licky, as I understand it Lisa apparently was the smartest of all the people on friends and a good deal of those in the industry without it being exaggerated or being advertised (hello Sharon Stone).

Sophie Helene said...

I also question the rate. She was definitely an A back then. She just did not relish in public life.

Himmmm said...

I just had to laugh...when reading this, it said:
"has been as high as a B...", which I thought meant: "has been as high as a Bitch...".
(sorry Entyopolis!)

NOTE TO SELF: read slowly when in transit!

Good girl, Lisa Kudrow. Always a class act and never badmouths others either. Even after working with Val Kilmer.

@Sherry: Who is "Aunt Licky"? And how do I meet this woman? Is the Count her "naughty nephew" or just a typo? ;-)

AKM said...

Exactly. I'd also like to know who the ex is. She's been married forever and has famously stated that she eas a virgin when she married.

Susan said...

Amazing.

Renoblondee said...

@AKM That came up here before. I think what we concluded was she actually said she wasn't a virgin, but that they married before they had sex. Is that right everyone?

PugsterMom said...

Bless her …

TaterOnTheCouch said...

Love these blinds and love her!

sandybrook said...

Hey himmmm!

Seachica said...

I remember Old Enty saying that the cast of Friends was permanent A list. Now Phoebe was only B list when the show was on air? Bs

TalksTooMuch said...

I love kindness reveals! Atta girl Pheebs

Henriette said...

She sure puts Jennifer Aniston to shame.

Tru Leigh said...

Wait. What Ex? She's still married to her one, and only, husband.

Cee Kay said...

I was just coming in to say that, Tru! They've been married since 1995, so when exactly was this trip to Africa?

evie2345 said...

Love her- super smart, talented, funny, and apparently a kind soul.

That cast was A+ list during the show's run.

CincyNat said...

She once dated Conan and they are still friends. Maybe they went together?

di butler said...

Holy shit!!! I cannot believe Enty called Lisa Kudrow a B Lister at the height of her fame! Somebody's delusional or under 30. When you are on two of the top television shows on the air in the 90s, and one of them is f'ing Friends and the other is Mad About You ? You are A list. Period.

di butler said...

I'm happy I guessed this wrong. Friends cast-A+ list tv, forever. Mad About You-A list at the time. Who wrote this??

mcmama said...

Aw, Phoebe gives me feels.

Aoife said...

I am now a fan of Lisa Kudrow.

Orvilla Bedinbacher said...

@Reno OMG, I am so glad someone loved the Comeback like I did. Valerie Cherish was just so damn funny. That show was brilliant. It's sad it didn't catch on.

Renoblondee said...

@Orvilla My husband and I thought it was hysterical! I'd love to watch it again!
