Blind Items Revealed- Kindness

October 21, 2013

A really simple blind but something that shows you what a difference one person can make. This actress is C list. Mostly television. Oh, if you have a kid under 15 then this actress is A list and the favorite part of their day. So, yes an A list tweener. She spends at least one day a week visiting kids in hospitals around the city and because she does it so often ends up spending hours and hours with patients she has come to know and she talks to them and texts them and e-mails them and tries to make their lives better. When they get out of the hospital she is till there for them and does everything she can in her spare time to help kids in the rest of the country and the world. I saw for myself one time how much kids love her when they see her and they all have seen hr countless times as she does good things with no seeking of publicity for it.

Deby Ryan

Who is Deby Ryan?

Meanie Rhysie said...

Seriously, Enterns? You couldn't be bothered to spell her name correctly?

Anyhoo, good on her!

And I believe we have found our book club post. See you back here at 6 pm mt, peeps

Kim Kardashian said...

There is no Deby Ryan. There's a Debby Ryan, though. Further proof you can't believe anything this guy says. Especially about Khlo Money

@Simon, if you don't know Debby Ryan, you don't have kids under 15. She starred on Disney's 'The Suite Life on Deck' and then on 'Jessie', where she plays a nanny to a multi-cultural group of kids.

I'm sure kids in the hospital would rather see her than all the Best Actor and Best Actress nominees combined. Mine sure would.

Probably does it undercover because when people find out stars do charity work, they shit on them for it, write articles about how they keep most of the money for themselves or set up tax shelters and churches and nonprofits to siphon the money. #LOSELOSE #AYNRAND

Kels said...

So cause Enty spelled her name wrong, yall cant acknowledge her good deeds? Ugh.

Discobitch said...

Haven't read any other comments but ot RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman

Renoblondee said...

Wonderful young lady. I don't know who she is, but I'm sure my two kids do. My teenager used to watch Suite Life and my young guy just confirmed he has watched Jessie.

it took forever said...

Yeah i heard he died

sandybrook said...

Its good that a young 'un can be so responsible and caring. A lot of that generation gives them a bad rap especially that Canadian douche and Miley

cheesey.burrito.whore said...

RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman...loved you in Pirate Radio and Flawless. THIS IS WHY CHEMICALS AND HEAVY DRUGS ARE BAD. I am just so shocked.

iknowpeople said...

@Disco, my friend who is high ranking NYPD says OD. Another friend knows his brother and sister and the sister had posted something funny on FB in last hour, so obviously was unaware. Very sad.

sandybrook said...

The NY Post reported the needle was still in his arm when they found him.

Damn autocorrect.
I love Debby Ryan. Jessie is one show I don't mind when my kids want to watch it endlessly. This reveal makes me like her even more.

NaughtyNurse said...

What a good girl! Not many 20 year olds from any walk of life spend their free time visiting sick kids in the hospital. You don't need to be a celebrity to put a smile on a kid's face. Good for her!

headrot said...

i dunno. this screams creepy hidden motives to me. maybe i'm just jaded and pessimistic.

Kels said...

Very pessimistic. Lighten up and think about how happy the kids must be!! You don't get paid to go to hospitals so I believe it's geniune. Give her her props!

Sean said...

Why have this one be blind? If true, this girl deserves the praise. And her target audience needs more role models.

Blake said...

Debby is a saint with a great rack I'd like to take a shot at. Glad to hear she's into charity and stuff.

Look at meeeeeeeeee said...

Same here

Kristin said...

@TTM I'm out this evening. Been sick all weekend. Dirty :(

Laura said...

I love Debby Ryan. She is a class act.

TalksTooMuch said...

Hope you feel better soon, Kristin. I tell you, it just does not feel like a wine-y anymore

Meg said...

Love what she does, but I have never heard of her. I have a 10 yr old and a 13 yr old, but they don't watch Disney. They're Nick kids.

Hammer_Girl said...

I've been target shooting all day. Is the book club postponed?

feraltart said...

Hammer, it is at 6pm your time on this reveal. Must look at time difference. Very excited I can participate as my work got ridiculous this morning due to a lying co-worker not bothering to come in on Saturday.

TalksTooMuch said...

Hey ladies! Who's here?

TalksTooMuch said...

How's it going, feral?? Did you like the book?

feraltart said...

Hello TTM, really enjoyed the book. The most thought provoking part for me was when the main character was talking with the reporter about racism. His describing how the African/American people had their culture ripped from them I felt mirrored the Australian Aboriginal experience. I do think that America is much further along in reconciling than Australia. I can understand hating the race that invaded your home, or stole you from yours, but I don't see much evidence that working from a basis of hate helps the culture that has been wronged. It is also hard to be hated when you know that you and your ancestors didn't directly perform the atrocities.
In many ways I think the African/American community has been able to produce outstanding people who have found powerful positions in society is they were freed and left to get on with it. The welfare state does not appear to have helped the Native Americans or the Australian Aborigines. I am in now way downplaying how there is still inequality for African/Americans, just that I think in years to come they may look at the Native Americans and realise they are much further along.

Meauxelle said...

I'm here!

feraltart said...

That would be no way above. Must proof read better.

TalksTooMuch said...

Hi Meauxelle!

Feral, I was really struck by how "old south" the book set the race relations is; I swear it could have been lifted directly from "The Help" with black people having a completely other side of town and never crossing over without comment or notice. I have to wonder, is it really like that still in Lousiana?

Meauxelle said...

Wow-very interesting comparison!

Meauxelle said...

I can't speak for Louisiana, but there are some areas in rural NC/SC that are still somewhat informally segregated.

feraltart said...

Hi TTM & Meauxelle,
I think TTM that there are pockets where towns and even cities are like that. We have towns in Australia where there are pubs that are for the Aborigines and pubs that are for the whites. The Aborigines want pubs for themselves, so it isn't a strictly white enforced segregation. Would be interested to hear from someone in the south.

TalksTooMuch said...

What did you think of the book, Meauxelle?

In Canada, we have aboriginals still living under the Indian Act, that was what set up the reserves and all the other provisions that have not been successful at all

feraltart said...

Can I say how much I hated his ex-girlfriend. Even with finding out what happened to her, I just thought it was really low how she let his dad be treated, and why couldn't he just let her go and get on with his life! I think a lot more men are like that than women, though I have a female friend whose boyfriend cheated on her with her best friend, they have been split for over 15 years, she still sees both of them socially, and is still hung up on him! I don't get it.

Meauxelle said...

I really liked it. Since I read like a speed reader on meth, a good LONG book gets extra points.

TalksTooMuch said...

I would agree that men are more likely to get caught up in the "one that got away" trope, but man, if it isn't kicking my own ass lately.

I have a tiny confession, only halfway done

TalksTooMuch said...

I tend to read really quickly also, had a hard time getting it in this last couple of weeks.

What did you think of Caitlin?

Meauxelle said...

Tiny confession MADE ME ROFL!! It looks a bit dead in here, should we postpone?

keeshlo said...

hi sorry so late everyone..i found the book a bit preachy but was interested to read something outside of my normal reading material

feraltart said...

TTM,
I think there must be a very close genetic make-up between your aboriginals and ours. The Australian Aboriginals have no tolerance for alcohol, and there are reserves where it is illegal for anyone to take alcohol in. They are genetically pre-disposed to alcohol addiction. Quite a few Aborigines were felled by the diseases that were brought with Captain Cook and his men. Over the years, there has been a policy of removing children from families to try and make them integrate into white society, as well as trying to 'breed' the black out. Where the African genes are very strong, the Australian Aborigine does die out genetically if they have children with people from other races. The other issue that is of great concern, but not handled very well due to the stolen generation, is that there is acknowledged that there is horrendous child sexual abuse that is perpetrated within the Aboriginal communities, mostly to the females, but when the government tried to do something a number of years ago they were called racists. The other thing is that the predominant community is not set up in a way that is cohesive with the Aboriginal culture. They do walk abouts and were nomadic. Aboriginal school children will often wander and don't get an education that allows them to succeed in the dominant white culture. Very complex issues to deal with.

TalksTooMuch said...

What do you guys think about postponing? I am okay with doing so, looks like more than half weren't able to make it. Superbowl! Ack. Is there anything going on next Sunday? Do you guys know?

You know, I know it's a totally different thing, but have been crazy bummed since the announcement of Philip Seymour Hoffman's death

feraltart said...

I am happy to postpone TTM. Just let me know what you want to do.

keeshlo said...

I too found it difficult to finish, didn't get into the characters. I had a hard time logging on to a computer at this super bowl party im at not to mention getting the stink eye!I've been wanting to get to know the cdan people better though so I wanted to at least check in!


TalksTooMuch said...

That sounds very much like the issues that were affecting Canadian aboriginals, residential schools and the horrific and widespread sexual abuse. A lot of problems with even having clean water on the reserves took a long time to be addressed.

Hey keeshlo! What kind of books do you normally read?

TalksTooMuch said...

LOL - ok keeshlo, I totally understand about the stink-eye. Do we want to reschedule for next Sunday? Take another run at it? Same time, same place?

feraltart said...

TTM, same bat-time, same bat-place. Go Seattle!

Meauxelle said...

You know, TTM, I've been really bummed about PSH all day, too. My best friend and I have been "together" for 15 years, and whenever we see movies, we announce "STAH" when we see someone new that has that certain something. Neither of us said it in the theater when we saw "Boogie Nights" because, well, we were watching for something else. But a couple of days later, we were talking about the movie with some other friends, and when one of them asked who that Scotty dude was, we BOTH said, "STAH!!"

And, for the past 5-6 years, people have been telling my bestie that he looks like PSH.

All that to say, honestly, my heart ain't in it tonight.

keeshlo said...

sounds good to me. just let me know during the week...always read but usually too late to comment. see ya next week! back to the party to be sociable

TalksTooMuch said...

You know, just even thinking about his voice, in Magnolia and Boogie Nights, just heartbreaking all around.

All right yous guys, so glad we got a couple few of us out tonight!

Same bat-time, same bat place! Hope your lying co-worker gets their due, feral!

KhloeK said...

Preach sis!

Renoblondee said...

I'll try to read book this week and join next week. Yay!
