Blind Items Revealed - Kindness

September 25, 2013

This B+ list actress has a credit list longer than most. Well over one hundred. Foreign born and on a hit cable show for the past several years. Always gorgeous. She is also one of my favorite people so this is probably a little biased. When one of her kids went to college this year the child told her mom about a student there who was working three jobs because the school had told the student there was a scholarship available but it turns out there wasn't. The student had some financial aid but not enough because the school is pricey. Our actress heard about it and is footing the entire college bill. Not just for the year but the whole four years.

JAS was playing the role of VIP that day apparently.

Jonathan Andrew Sheen said...

Shhh, sandybrook, I think that would offend her!

I've loved her since "Wild Hearts Can't be Broken"

msgirl said...

Love her! She was the only reason I occasionally caught Burn Notice when my husband watched.

sandybrook said...

Nah she loves it JAS.

Kristin said...

I guess I'm the only one who thought, "Gabrielle Anwar has a kid in COLLEGE?!" Then I quickly sped my brain backwards and realized that "Scent of a Woman" was really that long ago...

Megley said...

Anwar has three girls. Loved her as Fiona, but fell in love with her in Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead.

Caraface said...

Fi! Love her.

There is no better use for excess capital than funding somebody's education. Good for her.

Momster said...

That's fantastic of her. I have two kids in college right now--all the hidden fees and the books you pay for--outrageous. My oldest had a $250 book, at buyback time he was offered $2.

Sherry said...

Momster, the book issue is such a racket. It's sinful how much money they make off students (parents), change the books very little every few years just so they don't lose revenue on too many used books being out there. Assholes!

Gabriel Anwar..Lovely for helping.

I don't know who this lady is, but she's lovely for doing this.

I thought this may have been another good news Lisa Kudrow item, after the one revealed the other day ...

ninotchka said...

Nice lady, big lesbian.

Reese said...

She is hilarious in "Burn Notice". Would never have guessed this; lovely reveal.

PugsterMom said...

Love it! Love her!

Moxie Girl said...

I just got a new puppy and I named her Fiona after her character on Burn Notice. I love the actress, and I also thought the role was a great female role that she played really well.
