Blind Item #3

This Academy Award winning actress doesn't work much any longer but at least one of her kids does. Our actress will always be a B and will probably always have A list name recognition. It was really awkward when she went into one of her regular stores and was told she had a bunch of clothes on hold and did she want to pick them up. It turns out they weren't for the actress but for her husband's mistress. She had used the husband's name to hold them and the cashier assumed they must belong to our actress so told her about them.

Hello, Melanie!

Cleodacat said...

Rita? As in Tom Hanks with son Colin?

rajahcat said...

Melanie G. for the win

BeckyMae said...

Totes Melanie Griffith

Stepforded said...

Gosh, how awful ...

I thought there were measures in stores to stop this sort of thing from happening - especially at the high-end retailers.

I worked as a PA to a man in Hollywood in the '90s and was told under no circumstances was I to mention to the wife who had called the husband. And on a regular basis it was her friends that called him. It was awful!

auntliddy said...

sad and disheartening for the wife whoever she is.

Unknown said...

I had thought Goldie Hawn because I couldn't remember if Melanie griffith had a daughter ... then thought of Dakota.

Alice Tate said...

Melanie isn't an Oscar winner.

Stepforded said...

I hope it's not Meryl Streep ... daughters go by the surname Gummer

BeckyMae said...

You're right Alice,but she has been nominated which is why I was confusmented....(typo is deliberate psycho trolls)

rajahcat said...

well that is right she was only nominated

rethink!

Stepforded said...

Ugh ... ignore ... Meryl is still actively working.

I wondered about Reese, but Ava isn't acting (got her mixed up with Heather Locklear's Ava, who is acting).

Sprink said...

Goldie crossed my mind as well but they're not married. Might as well be.

Sherry said...

I thought of Debbie Reynolds is she married?

sugarbread maker said...

Annette benning?

InsomniaMama said...

To be different. Susan sarandon?

Kimba said...

Susan is not married, I thought her too for a second.

Eros said...

Goldie hawn fits this. She has my vote.

Anna Belle said...

Leaning towards Melanie-god if she had just laid of the cosmetic surgery-though it's gotta be hard getting older when you used to be the hot starlet & now her daughter is getting the hype

demandah said...

Vanessa Redgrave?

epiphany said...

I'm not a prude, and I definitely no saint, but I cannot fathom these people...they treat their marriages like a piece of clothing they put on or remove as it suits them. How do you stand in front of your friends, parents, the deity you worship, and swear life-long fidelity to another person, then unzip/spread your legs for anybody that looks at you twice? If your marriage is that miserable, leave. Cheaters don't just hurt their spouse, they shame themselves.

Derek Harvey said...

Goldie is not married

Nutty_Flavor said...

I wonder if Enty made the same mistake that some of us did, thinking Melanie had won the Oscar for 'Working Girl' instead of just being nominated. She did win the Golden Globe for that role.

Seven of Eleven said...

Tom Hanks would never cheat on Rita. She's got brass hands on every set of balls in Hollywood and she's not afraid to squeeze.

I like Melanie for it but as has been pointed out, she was only nominated (she did win a GG). If CZJ's kids were acting, she might fit.

InsomniaMama said...

Thats right. Her and tim Robbins have been together for so long I keep forgetting theyre not married

Meanie Rhysie, Enty #27 said...

@InsomniaMama, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins broke up some time ago. :(

Krystie Rachelle said...

Olympia Dukakis

jm said...

Rita has never been nominated for an Oscar.

Sprink said...

I thought briefly of Kate Capshaw then realised she has--rightly--never been nominated. For anything, probably.

Sprink said...

Playing detective I actually went through Bests and Supportings. The only ones that even fit in terms of having acting children were Maggie Smith (Toby Stephens, and doesn't work because Maggie's rather spectacularly acting in Downton); Sissy Spacek (but Schuyler Fisk doesn't seem to have an acting credit past 2011)...

So we're left with Goldie (who is not married) and Melanie (who didn't win the Oscar).

Either Enty got the facts wrong or deliberately changed details, 'cause the widdle bitty disclaimer says that sometimes happens.

Ps--I charge 500 a day plus expenses for my PI work.

Sprink said...

@Stepforded.. You might have noticed Meryl is still working...a LOT! :)

Topper Madison said...

I am leaning towards Shirley Jones.

Krystie Rachelle said...

Olympia Dukakis's daughter is an actress and she hasn't worked since 2011.

Just Another Girl said...

And Rita is not Colin's mom.

Basil said...

The offspring doesn't necessarily need to be an actor. The BI says working, so maybe something else? Is Mia Farrow married?

bellaluna said...

Ask my husband. I just found out last night that he had an 11 month long affair. :(

Princess Nobody said...

Bellaluna, so sorry to hear that. Are you okay?

Kimba said...

@Bellaluna, with Princess on concern, hope you're staying strong and deciding what's best for you -

demandah said...

Vanessa Redgrave won best supporting actress oscar for Julia. Her daughter Jolie Richardson is currently in Vampire Academy along with 2 other 2014 film credits. Just sayin'...

Kelly Whaley said...

I thought this too. But it says "husband" Goldie & Kurt Russell aren't married.

demandah said...

Joley

__-__=__ said...

Furthermore they are cheating on their children. Sad situation.

demandah said...

Joely!!! Jeez.

LowKey said...

Awww, Bellaluna {{{hugs}}} be strong girl.

CocoaBeachBunny said...

Ugh, Bellaluna, beautiful moon, that's rotten. :(

di butler said...

This has got Melanie "Working Girl" Griffith written all over it. Somebody that worked w her years ago told me she was in a pretty bad way, even then. ☹

Aoife said...

I like the Annette Bening guess. I'm surprised someone working in a high end place would make such a mistake.

bellaluna said...

Thank you. No, I'm really not. I'm alternating between rage, pain, and numbness. Right now, I hate him.
