Blind Item #14- Kindness

The other day someone handed me a slip of paper and on that little note was the amount of money this B list mostly television actress on a fairly hit network show has raised doing charity. She has a very memorable name. She has raised on her own somewhere near $10M and got her fairly recent boyfriend to get his friends to contribute $10M to start a foundation. The thing is none of her charities are sexy and she is out there every single day trying to raise money for her causes and never asks for anything in return. She is someone people should be looking to as a role model if you want an actress to be your role model.

I cannot believe how many blinds there are now. Unreal.

Oh, you know me: I got nothing, but good on her!

Rashida Jones is always lovely like this.

Hi there, Meanie!

I've been away, what the heck is going on round here? I was waiting until the Great Winter Freakout of 2014 has passed before I posted again. Is it safe now, you think?

Meanie Rhysie, Enty #27 said...

Run, Sugar! Run for your very life! It's too late *sob* for me, but you still have a chance! Run!

Of course, it's safe. It's just a blog, silly one. :)

Sugar said...

Oh, okay, thanks. I was lurking but not posting on accounta all the crazy going round. And I don't mean the Kardashians.

Hi Sugar! I fear that things may not get back to whatever passes for normal til the spring thaw...

Is there such thing as a "sexy" charity? What the f*k does that mean?

This does sound like Rashida.

Princess Nobody said...

Rashida Jones is an awesome guess, Renoblondee. Big time charity usually begins with big time money and they are all about that Thriller money. Plus her career has been steadily great.

Sugar said...

'Sup LowKey aka Enty #58.7!!
I'll tread lightly till then, thanks for the heads up!

I'd assume that "sexy" charities refer to the typical Hollywood approved and admired charities. Such as any affiliation to Aids support, cancer, animal rescue, etc. This charitable celeb is probably doing something like (was it Claire Danes?) that helps families of wounded warriors with housing accomadations near Walter Reed hospital. Or homeless, women's shelters, food programs, heating assistance, and others. I'd assume because they don't directly impact the lives and collective conscious that makes up huge supporters in Tinseltown.
All of these charitable causes, and so many more, are worthy of supporting. They just may not translate well to annonce from a red carpet event. "I'm in this $10,000 dress to help support families that can't put food on their tables." Not good form. The term "sexy" is a well known marketing term.

I guess Rashida too but who's her new boyfriend?

Hey Sugar!

Sugar said...

Hiya Sherry! How ya been?

evie2345 said...

Good guess- she's great even if it's not her.

food banks and homeless shelters in my area have had considerable donations from musicians - in my little food bank we've had no love from anyone remotely famous, but we have had generous support from everyday people who give what they can afford to donate. Families show up on Saturdays with a bag of canned food and spend the afternoon packing hampers. I wish someone famous would notice far too many children who are fans need the basics including the need to eat, to live in safe affordable housing, to simply afford to go out with friends. It is pay the rent or feed the kids world.

Sherry said...

Amen RedR.
Good Sugar. Thanks for asking!

PS said...

Is Cheryl Hines in anything right now? This has to be someone with a money-connected boyfriend. Despite her pounding pavement to raise money, getting $10m from boyfriend's friends only happens when people are ├╝ber rich and/ or strongly connected to uber rich. and since this has role modeling involved, I am guessing it's not about oil money from Lindsay's regulars...

Why is this a blind, wouldnt "outing" a celebrity for doing something nice encourage others to do something nice? Sexy charity, clear plastic heels for out of work strippers?

@Meanie Rhysie, Enty #27
I was actually about to comment on the bs that is 14 BIs a day.
What the eff? There are not enough hours in a day for this many poorly written half truths!

A. C. said...

Sounds like it could be Sophia Vergarra with all the "sexy", "model", boyfriends friends of means. Think I misspelled her name.

Aoife said...

Charity is supposed to be done without fanfare. if someone is putting out a press release to make sure everyone knows they're on the side of the angels then I for one am always suspect.

The two people mentioned here are to be commended for the work they're doing. And they should remain anonymous.
