Blind Items Revealed

January 13, 2014

On Saturday night this A list celebrity spent a ton of money on his A list mostly movie actress wife. She begged and pleaded for him to buy it for her. She doesn't ever spend her own money on anything. He bought it and apparently expected some sex that night which might be understandable considering he spent almost $1M. He didn't get any sex and none the next morning and by the time the Globes occurred our celebrity was in a really bad mood and he was openly fighting with his wife in a very subtle classy kind of way. Apparently this is not the first thing he has bought her recently to try and make her happy and it was not his choice to move to LA and for two married people they hate was palpable.

Oh! Just 2 more for the win!

On her defense, it's considered poor form to pay debts with your vagina. Unless that's your line of work.

sandybrook said...

yeah the banksy got bought

Karen said...

Why would Chris Martin expect sex in return for a gift if they had been separated for a year?

Leekalicious said...

@TTM LOL! Poor form indeed.

One good sign that a woman's attentions are elsewhere (Mr. Zorn?) is when they don't want to have sex with you. I have no doubt Chris has had indiscretions in the past, though. A woman not paying her share, esp when she can well afford it is just cheap.

Goopy Reveals all day Y'all!! :)

Oh wait.

Don't care.

I think it is going way over 5 Sandy. Looks like every other post today will be a Goop reveal, then probably every post on Saturday. Fugazi Enty is probably kicking herself for burning that EEEEEEE Train one a couple weeks ago.

He wasn't attempting to buy sexual favors. He was making a last ditch effort to do something nice for his wife. He bought her something she obviously coveted, and he hoped she would show her appreciation with some sexual attention. Not an outlandish expectation, IMO. Now, did he do something that wrong that he felt the need to buy her an expensive gift? Maybe. But this isn't a hooker/john situation. Marriage is, by definition, a sexual relationship, and getting sex from your spouse is a reasonable expectation. Maybe if they put more effort into "consciously coupling" they wouldn't now be "consciously uncoupling."

Karen said...

@epiphany, it's not "doing something nice" when you expect something in return and then get pissed off when you don't. He was trading one thing for another.

In any case, I think this blind was made up. Everything about it implies that they were together and not separated (him trying to make her happy by buying things, him trying to make her happy by moving the family to LA). I find it more likely that she moved to LA as part of the separation, "made" him buy her the Banksy to make it look like they were still a couple until she wanted to announce the divorce, and that he was pissed off because he's sick of her shit and not because he expected sex.

@epiphany

That's pretty fucked in the head thinking.

BlondeB said...

I know this may come as a shock to some, but men tend to do ANYTHING to get sex, be it from a wife, girlfriend or a new acquittance.

My take was Goop was whining about wanting something she could have easily bought for herself. Now what are the chances part of the request had a little of, do this for me and I will show you my appreciation (again yes it does happen, women will use sex to get things) From earlier blinds she is supposed to be quite stingy in the area of intimacy.

So his expectation was not unreasonable. If you don't want you husband to think he may get a little something something if he goes above board in effort, then be prepared to get it yourself.

Now this doesn't mean that ANY woman or man is obligated for exchange of favors, but to deny it's part of the game of love, then you have mistaken or naive.

Sherry said...

Maybe he did expect sex. How many of us have had ex sex? Maybe he was hoping to stay together for the kids? Who can say.

epiphany said...

@flora goforth - Why, thankyou!

Orvilla Bedinbacher said...

If you are married, you should be boning. Seriously!

Count Jerkula said...

I'll take it a step further, Orvilla.

If yer living together, and dude payin all the bills, you should never say no to sexual activity, unless it will leave more than an overnight mark.

CharRicho said...

One one hand I agree that just because your husband buys you something nice, or does something nice for you, doesn't mean you have to sleep with him that night.

But you should have sex with your husband AT SOME POINT. And all the other blinds say that she wasn't. At all. Ever.

So of course he's probably hoping for sex with EVERYTHING he does at that point. He was probably at the point where like, I'll try anything, absolutely anything here.

Now of course we aren't in the relationship and don't know what happened to drive them so far apart that they weren't doing it, so maybe it was his fault in the first place and she couldn't get over it. Or maybe she's just a cold bitch and he shouldn't have married her. I really don't know.

But I do now that when my hubby and I haven't done it for awhile because I've been super stressed out (working full time and being in super stressful classes at school will do that occassionally) I can tell that he starts being EXTRA nice to me, and looking at me a little more expectantly when we go to bed. And that on the times where I role over and go to sleep anyway, even though I know what he wants, he definitely looks very disappointed. He's not being unreasonable to want to have sex with his wife on occassion. Now my husband might not be petty enough to get angry and start a fight about it, but I've never made him wait two years either (or anywhere near that!).

nurysp said...

give him some butt!

Orvilla Bedinbacher said...

Hahaha @Count @Kristin @Derek Love you guys!

Orvilla Bedinbacher said...

@nurysp that makes me think of that song 'Doin the butt! Oh sexy sexy. Ain't nothing wrong if you wanna do the butt all night long'

Seven of Eleven said...

I, too, believe it's made up. Goop begging for something?

LottaColada said...

He tried you guys. He tried.

urban chaos said...

Think about it, if you're separated but perhaps going to see if you can pull your marriage together with a last ditch effort- say six months of dating..counselling or what have you and your spouse is stringing it along to end it on their terms and not having sexy times you become a sulky, angry edgey version of yourself.

It would be frustrating as heck to be repeatedly rebuked at every turn and I don't blame Chris for acting out. Juvenile, yes but understandable.

Alita said...

I'm pretty sure that, for Goop, it was a 'conscious coupling.'

She was conscious that he was a rock star, conscious that it would play well in the press, conscious that she could do a thought provoking move to England ... very conscious.

Tina Mallette said...

I think even some affection or appreciation might have helped but she is one of those people who are never satisfied and never happy - seen these kind of people all my life and you don't want them as friends let alone spouses.

You see spouses who bend over backwards to accomodate their spouse, men and women, and it is all wasted effort even if you give them exactly what they ask for.

For GOOP it was all about impressing the elite crowd and one upmanship and maybe even punishing Martin for various perceived slights meanwhile she can brag see my husband will do anything I ask because I am just that wonderful

Malibu Borebee said...

In Jan '14 they'd already been separated for years. It was 'conscious PR coupling' at that event. Goop publicly manipulated Chris into buying her the Banksy right before their 'official' split. That's what pissed him off.

gr8p said...

Right, for the last FUCKING TIME: women are NOT whores! You are NOT entitled to sex because you spend money! Misogynistic piece of shit!

MadLyb said...

I'm a feminist (in other words, I believe women are human beings, just like most men are), but if you get married, wouldn't it follow that you would sort of be sexually available to your partner more than if you weren't married. You shouldn't have to bribe your committed "other" just to have the sexy times.

MCraw said...

Longtime lurker coming out of hiding:

Marriage is a contract. For sex. You publicly and spiritually claim the right to have sex with your partner any time you want and you are expected to perform your sexual duty anytime they want. There doesn't *have* to be a gift, but if there is, it just makes the contractual exchange even nicer. None of this whore or bribing business. But it IS naive and selfish to think that a husband should not feel entitled to the kitty when you've made the kitty part of the contract. Especially when he spent 1M to make the kitty happy outside of those contract terms. Thems be the breaks, folks. You might not agree, but that's marriage for ya.

FitzroyHipster said...

MadLyb, as a woman, I would also not expect to ask my soon-to-be-ex husband for a $1M painting that I could afford myself.

Em Dahling said...

When you get married sex is part of the deal but it doesn't have to happen every single time your partner asks. They should be considerate of your physical and mental mood and back off if you're not feeling it. There should be a give and take, if you are feeling fine but are not in the mood you could let your partner know that they need to help you get in the mood. Again, give and take and consideration for each other.

Alita said...

I'm going to assume you're trolling for hate, @MCraw. But you should go back to lurking, for sure.

Henriette said...

This blind kind of contradicts the other ones though. If this happened last January, Martin saw the writing on the wall and should have been way gone by then. Why buy anything and why expect sex from fishstick?
