Blind Items Revealed

October 18, 2013

This former A list mostly movie actress who I still can't believe was ever A list made it seem like she was the kindest, most sensitive woman ever when she rushed to the side of her soon to be ex husband. She was only there long enough for a few photos and a story or two to be planted and then she was on her way when there was nothing more for her. If she could get a Kneepads cover she would rush back to his side though but I'm not sure she can convince him.

Ashley Judd/Dario Franchitti

Woohoo, I got this one. But it was super easy, lol.

Out of the park for @Reno!

I like her as an actor. Growing up with Wynona & Mama Judd couldn't have been too much fun.

In the words of the immortal Stephen King in The Stand, there is just something aboot her that is like biting on tinfoil.

I know that The Ya Ya Sisterhood movie was panned universally, but dammit I love love love that movie and her in it too!

How was she ever A list?
EVER?
Did she have a successful TV show? Launch a franchise?

She has never been A list.

Keep your nose out the sky, keep your heart to god, and keep your face to the raising sun. They're going to shame you as much as they can.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

She's the worst.

Sunny said...

I used to adore her, thinking she was the most beautiful and poised woman out there (Plus Someone Like You was a cute movie)

And thennnnnnnn I saw her on Oprah talking in all therapy-speak (Her truth. Her path. The talking stones) and she lost me. It's too bad. She's a bright woman but I don't think she knows how to do things in moderation

Sprink said...

She was A/list. She was in r a Hollywood golden child. Hard to believe now, but for a while, her sh*t didn't stink.

Im just sayin said...

Dario is truly a good guy. I got the privilege to hang out with him when he was in nascar and he was so nice and genuine I found it hard to believe he was with her after all I had heard about her. He's a lot better off without that sack of crazy hanging around.

Sprink said...

@Sunny, 'poised' is the perfect word for her. At the time she surfaced, there was no one really like her ( it seemed). She stood out, in a good way.

Sunny said...

OK - I don't know where I came up with talking stones. I believe there was something about Ashley and mute stones somewhere out there in celeb gossip world, but for the love of Pete I can't find it now.

Also, my favorite movie with her is Kiss The Girls. I've seen it a million times. HiYA!

Preach it Yeezy!

@sunny --the stones story I remember was a blind from Lainey.

Steampunk Jazz said...

The scariest part about these reveals are that early on, so many had that " something" that set them apart, other than talent... Education, poise, a center and then....BLAM! They just..fracture and start believing their hype and go into the void ...yeesh.

Pink_Palace said...

I just remember that before she was an actress, she was just Naomi's younger daughter, the baby Judd. Does anyone else remember that she was studying in England back in 1988, and was originally booked on the flight that was bombed over Lockerbie, Scotland? It was her first brush with fame and she was so happy to be alive...I was a young girl and was so impressed w/her - first time I ever thought the Judd's had relevance...such a shame that she is no longer humble and grateful, because that younger version had a lot of potential...

I remember when The Judds were big and I read an article about the non-famous daughter who was in college. She was supposed to be super smart. She was so sweet and pretty. I don't know what happened to her. Maybe that crazy Mama?

Meauxelle said...

I love that reference! I saw that we'll still be book-clubbing tomorrow, but I forgot WHICH book! I've been sick for a week and had a couple of snow days, so I reread several Greg Iles books. I'm looking forward to the discussion AND the booze!

TalksTooMuch said...

It's the first, Meuxelle, The Quiet Game! That's awesome, looks like we're all good to go! Hubs is picking up more wine as we speak

TalksTooMuch said...

And I'm glad you're feeling better!

Meauxelle said...

Thanks, TTM!

Crazy NEVER goes away...it just lays dormant until something triggers it.

JD said...

I read somewhere she has infertility issues, and that her breakup was at least in part caused by her inability to have a child. Her husband didn't want to adopt, and she has always said in interviews she was ambivalent about having children, when the truth was she wasn't sure she would ever be able to have one.

Cee Kay said...

Well, if it's true he wanted kids but refused to adopt, then he's as big an asshole as she is.

teresa crane said...

Just to clarify, when are we commenting on the book?My router went out last week and I had limited internet access so I may have missed the post. Sorry.

And I used to think Ashley Judd was amazing. Loved her. Now she just comes across as smug and uptight.

TalksTooMuch said...

Hey teresa,starting around 6 mt, posting on the slowest post, that's awesome you are in!

TalksTooMuch said...

And Reno, you can still join us, say if you have a ereader like a nook or Kindle or something! Or just come drink wine with us!

Rhody said...

That Judd family is cray cray.

Renoblondee said...

Thanks TTM! I'll try to chime in, that'd be great. I do have an e reader, yes. That would be 4 pm my time?

Calif et al- naomi is crazy as a loon. I read ashleys bio, and even discounting some as exaggeration, naomi was nuts and a lousy mother. Naomi was addicted to drama with nen, involved herself with crazies, had overt sexual behavior in front of girls. When she devided she wanted her and wynnona to be in show biz, she wld go with wyn to concerts, meet up with someone and be gone for 3 or 4 days!!! Ashley was 11 or 12!!! Then to pursue career, pawn ashley off on anyone available, often with no food or money. When Ashley became famous, naomi and wyn were hyper critical of everything she did , from her decorating to her party giving. The crazy, as so brilluantly stated by cdaner above, lies dormant and then blows. Look at wynnona for chrissakes!! 3 marriages, one to a child abuser, food addiction, shopping addiction and her teenage daughter is infected with the crazy too. I can only imagine how her son is gonna turn out. So Ashley come honestly by her craziness, and i blame the mother, a selfish, self centered drama queen.

I remember when this accident happened there was an item in either Page Six or the NY Daily News that AJ had rushed to Dario's side and pushed his girlfriend/fiancee out of the way. AJ was feeding the rumors they were getting back together.

As far as the kids go, I think AJ pushed the rumors that Dario wanted his own biological kids. If that were true, they could have gone through a surrogate with a donated egg and his sperm.
