Blind Items Revealed

August 2, 2013

Before I even get into the details, I want all of you to know this will be revealed. It deserves to be.It needs to be. It is a sad sad tale. An actress, she thought she was going to be huge. She thought she was going to be a big big movie star. Everyone told her she would be. Agents and managers. Boyfriends and producers. Everyone wanted to be her and with her and she was golden. She listened to their words instead of words that wiser people told her. I used to know this actress. She was amazing. She did have that it quality. The thing is so do a bunch of other people in this town and they are willing to work for it. Our actress wanted it handed to her. Diva does not begin to describe her. Well, one very bad decision and our actress went from a nice solid B who was shooting for an A to an actress who is living off some perceived fame she had a decade ago and trying to make a living acting, but not doing a very good job at it. Sure, she makes enough money for the SAG insurance to kick in at the highest level. Good thing too. Since her fall from grace, our actress has enjoyed the company of booze, drugs and some really bad choices when it comes to men.

Her sometime boyfriend also thought he was going to be an A lister. Everyone told him he would be and he believed them and had much the same tale as our actress. Our actor loved booze and drugs and loved throwing his weight around and loved throwing around women too. He loved nothing more than getting some coke and a woman and ordering her around for the night. It was inevitable that these two would hook up. Their drug crossed paths meeting several years ago. Both of them washed out. He was hanging on better than her. Guys can look rough. Women can't. Not in this business. her drug use was just getting to that tipping point where there was no return. Neither of them had a ton of money, but at the time she still had looks. Not movie looks, but really good looks for the rest of the world. Escorting. He would set it up. At first she went through an agency and would give him some money and the rest was for drugs. They got tired of sharing money with the agency though so he took over. He ended up keeping most of it and would beat her if he thought she was holding out on him. Pretty soon her drug face was not even good enough for escorting. She was not street walker material yet, but she was offering 15 minute specials which is almost there. He would be in the bathroom or outside the hotel room door while she was with guys and to get his cut. The dealer was never far behind. The amazing thing is she did keep getting some roles. She does work. She is just not getting the roles she thought she would get. What keeps her working is that she is a very good actress. When the acting money runs out though, she is turning tricks and earning a buck and our actor is never far behind, always looking for his cut and still beating her if he feels slighted by her.

Nailed it

TalksTooMuch said...

Oh.my.god nothing good can come of knowing this. I have never heard of her

bored soccer mom said...

Wow. I used to think she was pretty and then I remember she blew out her lips to look like Angie and she never looked the same.

Seven of Eleven said...

Nice one, @VIP! Damn, they were looking rough. So was that whole post. Yikes, Anna whatever your name was. Rach was in there, too - hey, Rach, hope you're doing OK.

Jon said...

Never heard of her.

Marty McFly said...

I remember her as being slutty on Dawson's Creek. But good actress? She sure proved that in Freddy vs. Jason!

Bizzle said...

Young people in the business have grown up and made the wrong decisions, or bad decisions, and haven't been good role models. To be someone that people look up to is important to me.

Anothergrayhare said...

No idea who she is.

JSierra said...

What the Fuck was going on in that post.

High five VIP!

sandybrook said...

She was an earlier version of Nikki Reed and ERW. She did Tv first and moved on to movies. She was pretty hot looking. Edward Furlong another one who totally fucked up a budding career

timebob said...

every girl knows in Hollywood if you blow your chance there are thousands of younger prettier versions of you just waiting to take your place

Violet said...

Shooting for an A? A quick look at Wiki seems to show a pretty sparse career even back on the day. A recurring guest spot in 2 seasons of DC does not a star make.

Harlow17 said...

That girl with the small role on dawsons creek was going to be A list?

Huh. Interesting old thread. Anyone remember why Cathy peaced outta here? She was fun.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Just read the comments on that post... :-\
Have to agree that the ratings are made up, if no one has said it recently. The entyties need to state that on the " facts " disclaimer cause there is no way Keens was close to B

TalksTooMuch said...

That was a trolling that Rach joined in on; that's why some people thought she was a troll for the longest time

Bacon Ranch said...

Hey has anyone ever noticed that James Cameron has a certain 'look' for his young male leads? Longish hair, pretty boy? (Thinking Furlong and Leo, here)
Not complaining, just wondering where his inspiration for that lies. Maybe the popular guy in HS he wasn't?

Violet said...

@steampunk sometimes I think I need to have snorted some happy powder to be able to follow some of the comment threads here, cos stone cold sober leaves me a bit in the dark to be honest.

Cary Gaul said...

What is a Monica Keena?

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

@Cary I think it's a hat? Remains unclear.

FC said...

Wow, I googled her and the first images that come up are of her and Edward looking exactly like described here. Scary!!

Sara said...

I remember her in that movie with Kirsten Dunst, Rachael Leigh Cook, et al. Hairy Bird? Anyway, cute actress. I always wondered what happened to her, she seemed more talented than flavor of the month, and now we know.

8=====D aka Lil Tool. KermitGosnellKnobJockey said...

According to wikipedia she was in Beavis and Butthead, she clearly deserves the rating.

Axel Carlisle said...

What caught my eye, strangely, is that the original blind was published on Eddie Furlong's birthday, August 2. I know this because we share the same birthday along with Peter O'Toole. I guess Enty published this on Eddie's birthday as subtle clue.

Theresa said...

Yikes...

Brenda L said...

he was so cute when he was young!

Steampunk Jazz said...

On the previous post there is a link to the pics VIP used to back her guess. Does anyone else think that Ed Furlong has the same nose Michael Jackson bought? I thought he looked just like him with a wider face as his skin was filthy greyw.

Olive said...

Such a sad story.
Edward Furlong is a dirtbag.

Number12 said...

I loved her in Man Of The House with Tommy Lee (This-Is-My-Happy-Face) Jones. At one time, I thought she had the most breathtaking eyes in all of Hollywood.

rajahcat said...

that is really long.......

same sad stories keep repeating for the child stars/young Hollywood..........

they get so caught up in it they can't see the reality of what they are getting into

Rigby said...

I didn't remember the name but then I looked up her IMDB page. She was the little sister in While you were Sleeping. But I remember her as Bonnie on Grey's Anatomy from one of the saddest story lines EVER. She was the girl who was impaled on the pole with another man in the train crash. The whole "if love were enough she would be here right now" episode.

Jessie said...

I looked her up on IMDb too! She was in The Hairy Bird - so good

Derek Harvey said...

She was also in the movie Strike with Gabby Hoffman and Kirsten Dunst. Up your Ziggy with a wah wah brush Furlong.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

@Derek is here! We were worried after those photos of you passed out on that casino floor :(

Derek Harvey said...

Kristin! Hey girl! Don't worry bout me I'm always good : )
Casino Floor?! I don't think so! How common. I don't even think I have ever been to Casino---I was however at the strip club last night ; )

MadLyb said...

Both of these people had such amazing potential. This is so sad!

FitzroyHipster said...

She also played the lead in a big screen Snow White adaptation with Sigourney Weaver circa late 90s/early 2000s....I was a big fan

Aoife said...

I've never heard of her until now but that pic of her in the Daily Mail makes me sad. You don't want to see anyone fall to that level.

Scallywag said...

IMDB says she is filming Manson Girls right now...playing Squeaky Fromme.

Anna Katherine Nonymous said...

That was a troll using a twisted version of my name. I always noticed that furlong has a slitted evil squint thing he does with his eyes that makes him look super dark sided.

witchingmetal said...

i like the scene in undeclared where she is dancing on the bar all slutty with her midriff showing. even if drugs and time have been harsh on her appearance, i would still pay a nominal amount of money to have sex with her if the opportunity presented itself

edward furlong was pretty good in terminator 2 and american history x, its a shame he went overboard with the drugs and wasn't able to reprise his roll as john connor. he sounds like a competent pimp at least.
