Blind Item #1

One of the biggest foreign born female celebrities in the world is HIV+. Apparently she was diagnosed almost two decades ago and has been living with the disease since. She recently opened up to a group of people about living with it.

Not cool, bro
You won't out people, but this is OK? Way to draw the line

Whoever it is, good for her. There's a huge stigma, and if she can help dispell it, good on 'er. I have a friend that has been living with it for almost 20 years, some public backup would probably be welcome

Blondie! said...

I'm glad that she's doing okay, but until she comes forward, I don't think it's necessary to out her.

fancyscreenname said...

I have too much class to throw out random names of possible HIV infected starlets, seems wrong.

However...

I'm classless enough to click the NOTIFY ME button and read YOURS. ((Drums fingers on table))

Lady Heisenberg said...

Yes but people deserve a right to their privacy. We are talking HIV here. People also have a right to decide whether or not they want to become a champion for some issue. For example, if Bruce decides to come forward as a MTF, I will be delighted. If Bruce wants to be private about it, I'm sad about the missed opportunities this would afford, but I respect Bruce's privacy at this time. Bottom line: this person clearly hasn't come out as positive, and this is NOT Enty's right to post, nor ours to discuss. Nothing to see here, folks.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Did anyone see The Dallas Buyers' Club? Excellent movie about an ordinary working class guy who got HIV - via straight sex, if it matters - and really made the best of the bad hand he'd been dealt. He did everything he could to find new treatment methods, wouldn't toe the medical establishment line about 'what was best for him', and then shared his new approaches (for a fee) with other ordinary people who were also HIV positive. Can highly recommend it, also on Netflix. It's the kind of movie you don't have to see on a big screen.

OneEyeCharlie said...

@Nutty: GREAT movie. Not overall a big fan of Matthew M, but he nailed it in that movie.

Also, I found that book on the fashion industry very interesting. Thanks for the recommend.

Nutty_Flavor said...

@OneEyeCharlie Happy to be of service! :=)

TalksTooMuch said...

Yes, Lady H, but aren't you helping to perpetuate the myth that HIV is a more shameful disease than say, cancer? People don't typically get shooed away from guessing on those blinds. People with HIV can have got it in a myriad of ways, and talking about it in a rational way, as a terminal illness with harrowing treatment plans, can only help.

Having said all that, I have no guess as I find all the illness blinds sad. I just think it's worth looking at why HIV is looked at so differently.

Blondie! said...

@Nutty--that movie's on my list to watch.

@Charlie-what book?? I wanna know!

Blondie! said...

Oh, I watched a TV show last night that was about this topic, oddly enough.
There was a mystery series called Chandler & Co (Peter Capaldi, Barbara Flynn) in the 90s on BBC1.
One episide dealt with AIDS/HIV.
The storyline--a vicar's daughter goes to college. Sheds her old bf, her glasses and blossoms into a smart, lovely looking woman. Falls in love with someone else. Not sexually experienced. First lover/love gives her HIV. She goes public and disappears.
Vicar hires the private detective (Flynn) to find out where is daughter is--he tells the detective she's missing. In reality, he wants her to find out who gave her the disease.

TalksTooMuch said...

@Nutty, that was a great movie!

surfer said...

Bravo TTM. Everyone deserves privacy, especially medical privacy. If this person chooses to go public, yay for her. If not, people shouldn't speculate.

How is this seen as "outting" when she publicly told a group she was speaking to at an event???

unfortunately, I don't have a clue.

A+ celebrity entertainer, I'll have to think on this one..

Don't reveal this one, Enty. Please.

@katie, oh no there are no HIV+ actors in hollywood! Rock Hudson was the last one to get it.

Blondie! said...

@Charlie--oh, I've read it. It's fascinating!
To think that they make the goods in China, have them sent back to Italy, rip out the "Made in China" tag, then replace it with the "Made in Italy" tag, then price it in the thousands, boggles my mind.
Or that companies claim that items are hand cut and the materials are cut with a laser etc., Love that book.
I heard that Thomas has been working on a new book, can't wait to read that one!

Lady Heisenberg said...

I'm not disagreeing with you at all
TTM. If I were this person, I personally would chose to use the illness as a way to bridge and educate. However, I respect that other people may feel differently and that is their choice, not mine.

A dear friend of mine is working on his PhD at UCSF and his research is on HIV and how it is so unique simple because of the complex social dimensions and stigmas that it carries. While a lot of his work was on epidemiology in the sense of studying how the SF gay community perceives HIV disclosure, he just shared a really interesting finding. The white men he interviewed, many of them refused to sleep with men of color until they became +. When asked further, it's quite horrifying how their admissions of being more racially inclusive were linked with narratives of contamination. As in, I'm now dirty because I have HIV, so I'm more open to dating other races, because they're also dirty...It's all very interesting but very sad about how we still continue to stigmatize those with HIV

Jonathan Andrew Sheen said...

What are all you "don't out her" complainers talking about???

I'll quote: She recently opened up to a group of people about living with it.

She is out, you numbskulls!

Blondie! said...

I was talking to someone who is working on getting his masters in Philosphy. He was telling me that he wants to concentrate his work on how music and pop songs are a reflection of the cultural zeitgeist.
So I asked him how he would be able to explain the dichotomy of the dance music of the 80s; where they songs were talking about sex whilst the culture at the time was grappling with the rising AIDS epidemic.
He told me that he hadn't gotten t that yet.

humble1 said...

But what if this person has been sexually active and passing it on? Don't people have a right to know?

Dexamyl said...

Considering the sex and drugs in Hollywood, I'm surprised we don't hear more about it.

I heard stories about RDJ years ago but he's still around, albeit somewhat worse for the wear.

Seabee said...

@Nutty - I thought Jared Leto made the movie. He was great and heartbreaking. Had no idea he had it in him. Been's goofing around with his silly band for so long - I forgot he was an actor.

Derek Harvey said...

Enty has outed Britney Spears for having it. But I don't understand why she is always talking about wanting more children?! That sounds dangerous for everyone involved.

Katie said...

There is less than .02% chance of a pregnant woman giving birth to hiv pos baby I they have been taking proper medication throughout pregnancy

Katie said...

That means nothing. The medicine is so advanced that most people look normal and live a very very long life. It's not a death sentence like it used to be.

Derek Harvey said...

@Katie--kk I really had no clue about that sorta thing. My friend has it and she wanted to get a nose job but the surgeon she preferred to do the procedure refused her...

Lady Heisenberg said...

All we know is she came out to a group of people. That could mean anything, like her family or close friends. I don't think that means a bunch of people on CDAN. I'm sorry you think I'm a numbskull but I just feel bad that this is even being speculated about.

Derek Harvey said...

@Lady---don't listen to him-he is notorious for being arrogant and name calling! The only time I wanna hear from him is when they bring back To Catch a Predator and he is finally busted trying to get little girls to dress up like Emma Watson in Harry Potter!

TalksTooMuch said...

I will say that the odds of Enty actually outing someone as gay or "outing" someone with HIV are slim and none. Indirectly, like Britney Spears.

Blondie! said...

@Lady--you're preaching to the choir here. I think that we're all with you on this.
Unless she goes public; sends out a press release, does a press conference, interview etc., she ought to be left alone.
For all we know this public event that Enty's talking about is that she just NOW told her family.
I do agree that if she goes public, she could help a lot of people. However, she might not as she might be terrified of Hollywood locking its doors in front of her.
Either way, until she's ready to announce it, we should respect her silence.

Kels said...

That's how the stigma goes away. I worked at a place where I did HIV/AIDS tests and it is just devastating when you see a positive, but I knew they were gonna be alright. I mean honestly, maybe it's because I know a lot about sex education, HIV isn't any different from herpes in terms of deadliness. It's like a pain you can't get rid of but you can live with it just fine. The stigmas need to stop!

sugarbread maker said...

moss or Minogue
there have to be dozens in hw who have hiv. anyone know any?
I thought Farrah fawcet actually had hiv and just said cancer??

Kels said...

See Katie's stats. It's not a death sentence and the chances of the kids having it are sooooo slim.

Count Jerkula said...

@Kels: I have heard of HIV being more like diabetes. Take your meds and you will live a long life. I have heard while on the meds, it will be undetectable that you have the bug. No clue if you can still pass it though.

Lady Heisenberg said...

TTM- Hope you're right, but it just felt whack to see this blind pop up first thing in the am

Kels- Good for you and thank you for your service! I'm in no way saying that whoever this is should not be open about their status, I'm saying if respect it even if they chose not to. I'm not going through what they are, only they can decide what is best for themselves. And yes, we have come so far lately in terms of treatments as well as PREP. I hope that minds start to follow suit quickly

Lady Heisenberg said...

And TTM, I'm not only against this post because it is regarding HIV, I would be equally against this post if the celebrity in question had cancer. Cancer is no different.

TalksTooMuch said...

I know, Lady H, but there definitely is a different tone when protesting HIV blinds. I'm just saying that the more it's talked about, the better informed everyone can be. I doubt very much there is ever a plan to out this person, unless someone outs themselves, at which point this would be revealed. Click bait

This just goes to show how much better the medical community has gotten in regards to helping people stay alive. My uncle died of aids related issues and if only they knew then what they know now he would still be here. Miss that guy badly.

Sherry, I'm so very, very sorry for your loss.

SyDy said...

"She recently opened up to a group of people about living with HIV." I'm really hoping that this was not at an AA (or similar) meeting, where there is an expectation of confidentiality.

Lee said...

People, being HIV positive IS a serious health problem. It's treatable. And saying, "Meh, it's like diabetes" is more than a bit naive. Even people who get the best possible care for diabetes often, over the long term, have some pretty bad side effects, or have regular health crises. Clearly, an HIV positive person who takes their meds and takes precautions and lives a healthy lifestyle can live a reasonably long and happy life, but it's not that easy. I worked a white-collar job in health care back in the 80s when HIV was a fast-track death sentence. I'm so happy every time I read about yet another advance in treatment. But please, it's still a very serious, life-changing illness.

Gabi said...

Kylie is mid-40's and dated Michael Hutchence for a while, he is very likely to be HIV positive :(

well enty did out it for Spears---Its not my responsibility to provide you with a link---can I get some back-up--anyone else remember this?

Seven of Eleven said...

Thing is, AIDS is considered a "sex disease", same as herpes, but even worse because it's a "gay sex" disease. Think about how sexuality is viewed in the US. A movie that shows some boobies gets an R rating, while a movie with multiple violent scenes - including decapitation - gets PG-13. How is violence better than boobies?

People are squeamish about things like this because it makes them think about squeamish things like sex and (GASP!) gay sex. Why do you think a third of the blinds on this site are about an actor being gay or an female celeb who makes out with women when she's drunk (ahem, Avril Lavigne reveal). It's just too clutch-my-pearls salacious to not use.

Gina Sz said...

Okay, I deleted my guess cuz I felt bad for putting it there. But think of an actress who was born in south Africa and had been raped

Katie said...

Yeah. I remember it but am very lazy. The first blind said that an a+ singer disclosed to a physician that she was hiv+. The next day, the blind said that the reason for the physical was an abortion.

The abortion blind was revealed as britney. So I guess technically enty can say that he never technically outed her hiv status.

skippy said...

Please never reveal this. People need their medical issues kept private.

skippy said...

I'm a RN. During the mid to late 80's I worked with a lot of patients who were HIV+ . No one except the medical staff were supposed to know about any medical condition. This was in a general medical or surgical ward. Their meals were always left outside of their rooms, & cleaners refused to enter the rooms. It was heartbreaking.
Don't tell us who this is please.

feraltart said...

I was a pathology technician for 10 years. I would like to go over some facts re: HIV.
HIV is a lipid based virus, meaning it is not very strong out of its host. If a bit of blood is dried up, the HIV virus is dead. The risk of infection is dose related, meaning the more infected substance you get in your bloodstream the more likely you are to contract HIV. The good news is if you are a health professional & can get the anti-viral drugs straight after a needle stick injury, your chances of contracting the virus are tiny. There was a very bad needle stick injury to a nurse in a local hospital about 15-20 years ago & she didn't contract the virus as she was given anti-viral drugs immediately. Compare this information with the Hepatitis virus, which is a very strong virus & can last for 3 days on surfaces (the cleaning of laboratory benches with alcohol did not destroy the Hepatitis virus). This also explains why babies can be born to HIV positive mothers and not be infected if the appropriate treatment is given to. mother and baby throughout and after the pregnancy.
The reason certain groups have a higher rate of HIV infection due to sexual intercourse is merely a result of tissue strength. The anal tissue is more prone to tearing which allows the easier transmission of the virus into the blood stream. The vaginal tissue, while stronger than anal tissue, is still prone to tearing and that is why there is greater male to female transmission of the HIV virus during sexual intercourse than vice versa.
With all the education that we in the developed world have, the only two groups that I would expect to see with high transmission rates are intravenous drug users and sex addicts (and unfortunately rape victims). However, we live in the real world where bigotry, shame & complacency are killing us. If everyone could be open about their sexuality, without fear of judgement, we wouldn't have the down low issue which introduces HIV back into a wider percentage of the population. If we were honest with ourselves & accepted that anyone can become infected, we might practice safe sex and monogamy and be close to eradicating HIV/AIDS in a few generations.
We also seem to have become more conservative, which means a brilliant song like Let's Talk About Sex isn't getting played. Saw the film clip the other day & was again blown away by how brilliant it was at educating and entertaining.
Finally, you have different strains of HIV, so just because you are positive, and someone else is positive, doesn't mean you can have unprotected sex. If you have different strains you can infect each other with the different strain. Hope this was informative.

Blondie! said...

@feraltart thank you so much for writing all of this out, thank you so much for explaining this to everyone.

Lady Heisenberg said...

So sorry for your loss, Sherry. It is so unfortunate that patients get victimized first by the illness and then by misinformed and cruel people. Stay strong

Lady Heisenberg said...

The chances of transmission change depending on the viral load of the infected partner. A partner that is negative can further reduce the likelihood of becoming infected by using PREP drugs as another prophylactic measure

Leekalicious said...

@feraltart

So very well said...

BeckyMae said...

Nice one @feraltart! I have many friends living with HIV, some for over 25 years and one who was one of the first ever diagnosed here in. Australia. It is not. A death sentence anymore due to the revolution in drugs, however I would not compare it diabetes either.
Anyone who wants to know more about the amazing, brave and hard won fight for the right drugs should watched the doco "How we survived a plague" about ACT UP. Simply stunning that humans can rally together and force the US government to speed up drug testing to help HIV sufferers. Without ACT UP it might still be a death sentence.

Derek Harvey said...

As a gay man I have ALWAYS been petrified of AIDS/HIV I am damn lucky I dont have it---but know a few people that do. I don't know much about it besides dont sleep around and if you do ALWAYS wear rubber---and dont use dirty needles etc. I completely agree with @Lady it is so stigmatized cause trash like *it took forever* consider it a gay disease.

Derek Harvey said...

Like here is a story. I have a few about people I know that have it. The first time I ever met someone that told me they had HIV was at this lesbian bar in Toronto called Tangos. This guy kept tapping me on the shoulder and being annoying etc. I thought he was just a creep---but then I had to use the washroom and I ran into him---he was BLIND because he was sick from that horrible disease. I had no idea-------------I thought he was just weird--but I became friends with him (he taped me on the shoulder cause he said he could hear my kind voice FTR) and a few years later I attended his funeral. My friend I was discussing had a hook-up with a guy that had it and was stupid enough not to consider using a condom.. A straight chick---very beautiful and never slept around. The guy was HOT so he could not possibly be sick. She worked with the guy and heard whispers behind her back about "does she know--?!" cause the guy with HIV worked there longer and let everyone in the free world know but her! After a co-worker was kind enough to chime her in about the scenerio-2 days later it was on the Toronto news station and in every newspaper that the guy slept with so many women and never told them! I was watching the news and knew everything and I just burst into tears for my friend.

@Derek, *I* was the one who said "gay disease", and I used quotes to emphasize the ridiculousness of the concept. It took forever was making a similar jab about how no one in Hollywood has had AIDS since Rock Hudson. It's not saying HIV/AIDS is solely a gay disease, it's pointing out that that is what scandalous gossip rags imply - if you're HIV+, it's because you're either gay or a slut.

2 non spoiler thoughts on True Detective:

1) The casting director picks some fine trim to go nude.

2) I think for the interrogation scenes, they just give Matt a doobie and bullet points. I think Rust is only a tiny bit farther out there than he is.

lutefisk said...

I thought this was going to be a nice thread to educate people.

Anyway, a few years ago I had some surgery done and a resident stuck himself with one of the used needles. The next day my surgeon asked if I was willing to be tested for HIV because the resident was terrified. They were taking so much blood from me anyway so it didn't really matter. I felt so bad for the poor guy. I couldn't imagine what was going through his head, and also thinking about people who wouldn't allow themselves to be tested in that situation.

di butler said...

Thank you @feral tart.

This is a gossip blog, not the morality police. I had friends I lost in the 80s-early 90s. I think they'd be shocked at how little we discuss this.

Dallas Buyers Club is great. Matty Mc & Leto both should win Oscars.

This doesn't say actor. I'm guessing Kate Moss as well.

PotPourri said...

Lesbians don't give other Lesbians HIV, so it is a heavily related male disease. It goes male/male, male/female, but not female/female.

Also, it is a HORRIFIC death sentence if you don't take care of yourself. You can't drink, drug or do anything that jacks with your immune system. You catch the flu and HIV can rise. It's an immune virus disorder. Please don't think it is benign just because it responds to treatment. It still kills, it's just not an automatic death sentence anymore.

By the way, knew someone who did the Dallas Buyer's Club thing too. That's def a true depiction of what happened.

Setting up a blind and revealing/outing someone are 2 completely different things. It's always so amusing how commentors pick and choose what they want to get up on their high horse about.

My first thought was Kylie, but Kate Moss is a possible too.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

my first thought was Gloria Estefan. I don't know why... she fits A+ for her musical past and her age would also fit.
She sings andproduces, did movies, wrote books and owns an hotel. Would fit 'celebrity' : she is not just a singer.

Andrea said...

Could be someone older like Olivia Newton-John.
