Blind Item #5

This former B- list mostly television actress from a now defunct almost network hit was hired to an ad campaign. It was a very simple photoshoot but our actress was having a tough time coping. She hadn't used in about a day and was shaking and sweating and could not sit still long enough for even basic makeup. The whole thing was a mess from start to finish and they finally just put her in front of the camera and after 15 minutes the photographer said he had something he could work with because the actress was just a mess.

Is it just the show that's defunct or is the almost network gone, too?

Addiction is a mess, y'all.

Is this re that Rachel Bilson/Magnum ice cream commercial I've been seeing every three minutes on MLB network? I'm such a child that I giggle every time they say "Magnum".

Cary Gaul said...

Kristin, it's the show, and I'm pretty sure it's The CW, so probably AnnaLynne or someone like that.

Frufra said...

Although, the internet tells me she's on some Heart of Dixie show, so maybe I'm wrong. But I'm still highly annoyed and amused by that Magnum commercial.

clearly heroin for the drug.

@Frufra, it's such a corny commercial! They really could've picked a better name for their product too.

ALM thrives off hugs not drugs, y'all.

(Got ya back, boo)

True that, yo Seven

FSP said...

@Lotta- Blasphemist

Seven of Eleven said...

@TTM! I knew the signal would reach you. :b

Are you my fellow Helen Mirren fan? I saw THIS today and laughed out loud.

TalksTooMuch said...

Bwahaha!! That's awesome, Seven! I would so much rather watch Helen Mirren (whom I adore) twerk than Miley, true story

LottaColada said...

@FSP- I stand by my guess =P

Rachel Bilson.

Derek Harvey said...

Hart of Dixie is still on and Rachel is known for being a goody-goody (she claims to not even drink).

CharRicho said...

@Frufra, those Magnum commercials are YEARS old. They might be new in the US (not sure because I don't live in the US, I've never seen them in Canada), but I first saw them when I first moved to Australia and that was 6 years ago now.

Jonathan Andrew Sheen said...

If the Magnum commercial you're talking about is the one where she walks over the tops of cars in a traffic jam, so the driver of the refrigerator truck steals some of his cargo for her, that's at least one and I think more like two years old.

Jessica szchor

CharRicho said...

Was airing in Australia LONG before that. Might be new(ish) here. I've been back from Oz for 2.5 years, and I first saw it there. I think it's at least 5 years old there, if not more.

Frufra said...

Thanks, y'all. I stand corrected about the Rachel Bilson ad. I'd never seen it until the past few weeks, watching Spring Training games on MLB Network.

CharRicho said...

Jessica Szohr might be a good guess. She has definitely had or still has drug issues, and I GUESS she could be considered B- though I might put her more around C.

But is anyone really paying her to do an ad campaign? I know she's had at least a couple in the past but can't think of anything she's in at the moment.

Alexis Bledel :)

CharRicho said...

Lol another funny thing about the Magnum ads, I thought they were HILARIOUS when I first saw them because why would you call your ice cream bars Magnums, but no one in Australia seemed to get it or understand why I thought that was funny. I guess maybe they don't have Magnum condoms there?

I didn't know they were over in the US now, I'd never seen Magnum bars before Oz. They're quite popular there.


But, off topic, sorry, I don't really know who the blind is about but I suppose it could be just about any of the girls from any of those canceled teen CW shows.

Sherry said...

I've never seen these commercials. Now I'm gonna get stuck on Youtube watching cat videos, dammit!

Weren't we all saying this same exact thing about Jennie Garth in her Old Navy commercial? I can't remember if that was a reveal or just the consensus

Sunny said...

Oops - didn't see photo shoot. Never you mind

Milano was recently on a Project Runway spin-off and was terrible. She looked absolutely awful, sweaty all the time, her make-up just dripping. And she tried so hard to be clever but just came across as desperate and lame. I was embarrassed for her, just watching the show.

Lady Heisenberg said...

OMG I have to re-read this but has no one guessed Taylor Momsen?! TOTAL heroin addict. Sounds like her. Get some help Jennyboo

ktmonster said...

Something on WB or UPN (both now defunct and the CW)

Nikki Cox when she was on Unhappily Ever After on WB

ktmonster said...

Or Amanda Bynes when she was on What I Like About You (WB)

Looziana Magnolia said...

Mila Kunis is featured in Jack Daniels ads now. Or is she considered mostly movies now?

Brent Vassar said...

What a terrible drug addict, hey stupid, this photo shoot allows you more drugs. Please make sure you have enough to get through that, then get gutter high

Taylor Momsen

Lux said...

No Magnum condoms in Australia. Or Trojans. I could never understand why my American friends at uni would always laugh when they would see Magnum ice creams. In Oz we've only ever known them as the tastiest ice creams on the market. And CharRicho is right, those ads have been around for years. At least they're no longer using Liz Hurley as the spokesmodel, ugh.

Shenae Grimes has been a cokehead for almost a decade, this is absolutely her.
