Today's Blind Items- This Mom Is Dangerous

There are stage moms and there are stage moms who will do anything to make sure their kids succeed. This mom falls into the latter group. This actress is still a few years under legal age but her mom has her working steadily. The actress is on a great network show that should win Emmys but has been snubbed so far. She was also on a hit show for the same network. Anyway, the actress in question had trouble getting roles because of some weight issues. No problem the mom told a casting director and now the actress is skin and bones because her mom has the kid on a bunch of drugs to make her skinny. It has terrible side effects on the actress but the mom thinks fame is more important than health. There is nothing wrong with the teen but the mom has her on a bunch of medications that are going to ruin this kid, especially when they stop working and they move on to even stronger drugs.

Bailee Madison (Trophy Wife, Once Upon a Time both on ABC)

That's so sad.

The new dina. Old dina sit down.

Is this a good place to admit my love of Kiernan Shipka? She's darling, not anorexic and so talented!

sandybrook said...

I think behind every child star is a stage mom or dad.

msgirl said...

Vera, even Suri loves her!

Seven of Eleven said...

LOL @ "Old dina sit down!"

@Vera L, I agree. Even Suri likes her!

What a horrible mother. It's no wonder so many kids are fed into the jaws of the Disney machine with parents like these.

VIPblonde said...

More proof

Vera L- said...

well, if Suri (my kid is exactly the same age as Suri) likes her, she must be OK.

Seven of Eleven said...

@VIP, she was in a commercial when she was two weeks old? Wow, mom.

Sarah said...

At two weeks I wasn't taking the children out of the house, really, much less allowing strangers to handle them. FOR MONEY!

Jason Blue Eyes said...

I was going to guess one of the Parenthood kids.

Sarah said...

Bailee makes sense, she's not overweight, but she has that round babyface that makes a child star and breaks a teen/adult actress.
Side eye Christina Ricci.

The Real Dragon said...

Bailee is a good actress

Violet said...

See also that one from modern family - forget her name right now but you can see body issues coming a mile off if she stays in 'showbiz' sadly. Horrible - what right minded parent would allow it?

Bruce Jenner said...

Not Kris Jenner!

JSierra said...

Suri worships Kiernan, she wants to skin her and wear her like last seasons Versace

Celeb Friend said...

Debbie Ryan ? IDK,I am guessing she is on Adderall or Ritalin,both are dangerous and only meant to be taken if you are ADD.

A sin,some parents want the fame more than the child actors do

Father Dowling said...

Has Trophy Wife even been eligible for an Emmys yet? That's the only reason I'd presume this isn't Bailee

Alex Tuttle said...

This is how Ariel Winters got emancipated.

Sherry said...

Alex, last I saw Ariel she wasn't skinny and looked like she was embracing all her womanly curves.

Some people just shouldn't breed.

B626 said...

Yes, spin her off her own show 'Sallys Effed up World'. Set in the early 70's.

M. Brown said...

Yes! Absolutely. Her face was so much fuller on Once upon a Time. Also her character was played by another actress in the pilot and then poof there's Bailee. I wonder if the mom did something ala Texas cheerleader style.

Alex Tuttle said...

yeah, once she got emancipated she was able to eat. All the court documents have how the mom wouldn't let Ariel eat and called her fat all the time, etc.

Please don't tell me you confused emancipated with emaciated.

Renoblondee said...

Am I the only one that finally saw the premiere ep of Trophy Wife and the teenage daughter was a different actress? than Bailee? I thought I was seeing things.

Meatros said...

This is just sad. I have young kids and couldn't imagine doing this sort of chit to them.

ObRay ArdashianKay said...

UceBay. You need to change your name. We are undercover now!
I am ObRay.

mngddess said...

@VIPBlonde - Read the article..For God's sake! How fat could she have been?

And I love how she's described as a "devoted" mother. Is that a new term for child abuse?

Tara said...

So sad. That girl is doing a great job on the show (which is also just fabulous) and she's a beautiful young woman who I'd never in any scenario describe as something other than thin.

Juce Brenner said...

Thanks for having my back! What's up with the haters from a gossip site?

Krystie Rachelle said...

Juce I missed you!

The Actress ("Stepforded" from another location) said...

Poor kid - this is terrible :-( There's something VERY wrong when normal, everyday, people can be up in arms about the final reveal of The Biggest Loser winner, only for one Hollywood insider to comment that if she was an actress she'd still be considered overweight.

I'm pleased Bella Thorne wasn't the guess here on this one ... because, although I think she looks amazing, I was a tad shocked when I saw her in the brown jumpsuit photo ... I'm sure she wasn't that thin in the last photo I saw of her. Won't take long for some asshole to comment that she could 'lose a few pounds' though.

No wonder a lot of Hollywood actresses are mean - they're hungry!

Honey Boo Boo; weight issues, under legal age, not caring about health; snubbed for Emmy's (obviously!)

KIDDIN'KIDDIN' ;)

Sick story though.. Scary how fame hungry ppl do anything for attention, even ruining their kids.

Einstein DeGeneres said...

FYI, It's "have ADD" not "are ADD". How did that even get started. Attention Deficit Disorder is something you're diagnosed with, not something you are. Like you're diagnosed with Diabetes but no one says, "I am Diabetes"

Wing-Ding Weisenheimer said...

Or "I am Diabeetus."

di butler said...

This is def Bailee Madison and Bella Thorne uses chemically derived diet aides. She's a future mess.
