Lainey Blind Item


It’s hard to stay up. Every time he’s gone up, he’s always come back down. It was thought that that was only because he was young. And now, with children and a devoted wife, he was supposed to be able to hold it together. So far, sure, but just barely.

There were signs before Christmas but during the holidays, he injured his back on a ski trip. This was not widely disclosed and kept out of the press. Painkillers were prescribed. The big movie was pushed back. Cocktails were consumed in combination at events. No one remembers he actually went to rehab several years ago. Still, so far, he’s functioning. And things are great with his wife. She really tries to take care of him but she’s not always with him. When he’s out on his own, it gets messy. There have been times lately where he’s been so drunk, he’s the dude passed out on the couch when everyone else has gone home. Either that or he’s the dude who’s all over the tall, attractive model type at the Oscar party that his wife decided to skip. Oh yeah, that happened. It keeps happening. They were talking nose to nose. He gave her the full charm. A “later on” was definitely implied, while everyone around him just shrugged. Because it’s not the first time and it’s not the last time and it’s the secret they’re all expected to keep. Not because he doesn’t love the mother of his children, because he does, he really, really does. But between the pills and the alcohol, he’s losing control of that side of himself that’s been held in check for too long.

RDJ

sandybrook said...

I think we decided on the other reveal this is Ben Affleck no?

Bacon Ranch said...

Whoa Karen, good call!

Who was at the Oscars without their wife?

timebob said...

I don't think it is RDJ only becuase his wife won't let him off his leash far enough to get into trouble again.

Sounds much more like Ben, he went to rehab for booze and gambling. Every time he gets really succesful he tends to blow things up in his personal life.

rajahcat said...

yep^^^

laura ramona said...

@Derek you are ruining my month. I still jump around in front of his pick in short green pants singing Heidi yolari hoho . Pls not RDJ . cause if he falls.. he falls pretty bad.

Bacon Ranch said...

No sandy, just because you decided on that doesn't make it so. Did MM's wife skip the parties? Bale?
Wondering what wife was there for the event and jettisoned before the afterglow.
I can see Bale's wife bolting, being pregnant and all.

plot said...

Ben was NOT at the Oscars or the parties. Jennifer was. So it's not them.

MISCH said...

Not sure it's Ben he's been working non stop

Simon said...

Everything fits for affleck except that Jennifer was with him at vanity fair party. Was there one after that where maybe she went home and he attended?

Simon said...

@plot, they skipped oscars but were at vanity fair after party, saw the pic!

Susan M said...

I tried to figure that out too Simon, but came up with nothing.

surfer said...

Um, plot - guess you missed the pics of Ben, with Jen, walking into the Vanity Fair party.

I think most of us assumed this was Ben. Too bad.

Anna Belle said...

I think this is someone who considers alcoholism a disease, meaning he has no control...RDJ has pissed off some addicts becuase he has stated that drinking & drugs is a choice, I doubtful he would take anything stronger than ecedrin at this point. Bale's wife was at the Oscars, she was sitting next to him. Could see this being Affleck, his ego gets out of control when he gets successful & he thinks he can handle it, meaning just 1 drink, 1 pilll, 1 hand of poker, etc...

CocoaBeachBunny said...

Yep

Susan M said...

Bacon Ranch- "Camilla Alves and actor Matthew McConaughey attend the Oscars Governors Ball at Hollywood & Highland Center"

sandybrook said...

@Bacon I called Matt Damon on the other thread everyone else thought it was Ben.

Karen said...

No one has forgotten that RDJ went to rehab, either.

Did Ben A. possibly go to another party after the Vanity Fair one without Jen?

Jonathan Andrew Sheen said...

For those concerned that this may be RDJ, please re-read the following sentence:

No one remembers he actually went to rehab several years ago.

You can now safely dismiss the possibility that this refers to Robert Downey, Jr.

Bacon Ranch said...

Anna it says was not at the after party. As in, wife attended the event but chose to not partake in the afterward parties.
That's why my guess is Bale.

Simon said...

@susanm-here's the link

Bacon Ranch said...

sandy, yeah...everyone always guesses Ben :/ if only Kevin Smith had such popularity to be called out so often on a gossip blog, ya know?

Renoblondee said...

Uh huh.

Susan M said...

"...he’s the dude who’s all over the tall, attractive model type at the Oscar party that his wife decided to skip."

I think it's possible that he attended a party with his wife and then also attended one without her, whomever it is about...

Susan M said...

CocoaBeachBunny said...

And here's a repeat of the link to Ben's injury: Whereas... "Ben Affleck has sustained an injury, and as a result Batman vs. Superman production has been pushed back six weeks. The crew was informed of that decision earlier this week, and told they’ll be on hiatus for about a month. Update: A second and third source tells me that Affleck injured his ribs, not his leg as previously reported. All three sources confirmed that the injury occurred during a skiing accident around Christmas time." - courtesy of "BatmanNews"

Bacon Ranch said...

Oh neat, JAS is here and no one even had to mention Emma Watson.
So nice for him to take the time out of MENSA meetings and set us straight.

Pervert.

sandybrook said...

Some of the guessers put up links to articles suggesting Ben fits most if not all the clues.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Nothing in this blind says t" this Christmas or recently" I stick by my Affleck guess.

Susan M said...

Oh no Simon, I was replying to you here when you said "Everything fits for Affleck except that Jennifer was with him at vanity fair party. Was there one after that where maybe she went home and he attended?" I also was trying to see if someone attended one party with their wife and then another without.

Simon said...

@cocoabeachbunny, hmmm, very interesting! Only other option is Ben went to a party after VF one and Jen went home...

Simon said...

@susanm , sorry misread! Got it

JAS is the Mensa-pervert-Emma Watson fan who taught me how to make clicky links. #Thanks

AsileM said...

Not RDJ! Every does remember his jail/prison stints. And usually fucks up pretty hard! Just to be different, but not too different, its Matt Damon!

crila16 said...

This is a no brainer. Ben Affleck.

Do you know how many oscar party's there are? He went to the Vanity Fair party with Jen, but when they went to other parties, she probably opted out. He's not going to hit on a girl at such a high profile event as Vanity Fair anyway. He did it once he was wasted at a different party.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Ben may have went to Madge's party after. No cameras allowed at that one. Plus his big fatman* movie got pushed back.

*typo and it stays. Mk

Tina Mallette said...

Well there are after after parties and after after after parties Oscar weekend. Did he hit the Madonna party where Charlize was sulking?

Tina Mallette said...

Great minds, Kristin LOL.

greasybitches1 said...

ben went to a diffrent party this is ben affleck but he was to vanity fair with jennifer garner ... this is ben next party without jen

chris jones said...

About a week ago Lainey teased that this blind was coming; note BA's eyes in these pics: http://www.laineygossip.com/Jennifer-Garner-joins-Ben-Affleck-at-Oscars-Vanity-Fair-party-after-presenting/29570

CocoaBeachBunny said...

Reporters attend Vanity Fair parties, so not private enough for screwing around on one's loving wife.

Lizzie du said...

This is MM the guy loves his booze and weed. He went to rehap years ago.

FlirtyChick74 said...

I thought he wasn't there

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Word, Tina!

The Blind Item site run by those 4 sisters keep good track of Lainey's blinds (and Ted C's, and NYP). Search by site, blind item nickname, celeb... Everything but anything CDAN related. They don't like our bacon-scented overlord.

Karen said...

@Lizzie du, possible, but Matthew M was also telling everyone that he and his wife weren't going to party very long at the after parties because he wanted to go home and put another baby in her. Doubt it's him.

Eros said...

Whoever this is, it's very very sad. Hope he gets straightened out for his sake and the sake of his fam.

Susan M said...

Dang Karen, that's kinda hot.

Anna Belle said...

Matt M's big issue is pot, he likes it alot, he stays up late listening to music smoking it...drink & pills & other stuff was never much of an issue for him...with kids he has cut down on the pot.....doesn't want them around it

Tina Mallette said...

And MM looks so very very fine during award season wow. Like he suddenly 20 years younger.

T. E. Cuz said...

most clues fit for ben and jen, excpet for the first sentence. it does seem that the writer is referring to this past christmas. were they skiing 3 months ago?

Sherry said...

I agree with other posters that people would remember RDJ's rehab stint.

Sounds like Ben.

nurysp said...

when lainey posted her oscars pics
she mentioned bens appearance and said " we will get back to this another time"

its ben

Melpomene25 said...

MM had me feeling all hot and bothered in True Detective once he got some weight back on. His sex scene was SEXAAAY!! K, off to a cold shower for me now

nurysp said...

MM is not in a big movie thats been pushed back

Count Jerkula said...

That sex scene was hot, Mel. Lift up the dress and have some fun bent over the dining room table. HOT!

SFW

Melpomene25 said...

Absolutely Count! MM knows what he's doing ;)

LowKey said...

@Derek, DUH!

LowKey said...

Agreed, JAS.
RDJ is practically the poster boy for rehab.

Jeri said...

I always thought the RDJ guesses were a joke. Someone guesses him for almost every blind, even if it in no way fits.

I always disregard the RDJ guesses along with Betty White & other guesses some people think are so "funny ha-ha cute" for every blind.

crila16 said...

Who said anything about pics or cameras being taken during the Vanity Fair party? People have eyes...and people talk. It's high profile and closely watched party.

Definitely Affleck. The batman/superman movie got pushed back another year. Also, the hint Lainey gave a week ago. Makes sense.

Derek Harvey said...

FYI--- and I acknowledge this may be hard for some of you to understand---but the majority of the world does not spend their spare time on gossip blogs etc. and with Downey being clean for so many years many people are not aware of his past troubles or have completely forgot. I was quite young when he was a mess and I barely remember it. I am aware of it now obviously from being a regular here. No Need to cop an attitude about it.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

The cameras at Vanity Fair thing was about Ben and Jen being photographed together at that party. Madge doesn't allow photogs so people were just pointing out that he could have went to that party without her. That's all.

D, who are you yelling at?

Jaiden_S said...

This one is Affleck. There's a Jan 2014 article about the skiing accident and he went to an after party without Jen later one. It's him.

Derek Harvey said...

@K haha not a yell just a harsher tone than usual--and definitely NOT you : )
Can't wait to watch HW of Atlanta tonight- They go to Mexico!

Hasta Luego Senorita

LowKey said...

Uhhh, Derek, I thought you were making the obligatory "RDJ is the answer for everything" reply, hence my standard "DUH" in response.
I meant no offence.
Peace?

Derek Harvey said...

LK--yeah yeah of course! Didnt intend to sound harsh. I was addressing everyone about RDJ and that not everyone remembers him going to rehab. I was half-joking as well about the guess---but hey ya never know...

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

D, Phaedra is on fire this episode and Andy Soze just needs to give Peter a peach to hold in the opening bc he is the shadiest of them all.

Jeri said...

I remember RDJs problems - they were EPIC. That is why I have so much respect for the guy turning his life & fortune around. Very intelligent fella.

It's not impossible that he'd slip, but I hope very unlikely & that is how I take it when he is in the guesses over & over. Maybe they think if they repeat it over & over they will get lucky & he'll slip. Sure hope not.

Derek Harvey said...

@K---remember when Nene called Peter out for being a "little bitch" and "acting like a queen"?! lol --The Mouth from the South strikes again!

Hegg said...

Vince Vaughn.

bellaluna said...

Affleck, Damon, or Wahlberg (Mark).

susan carter said...

It probably is Ben Affleck. He is obviously unhappy with that spectacle wearing mob that he calls a family.

Henriette said...

This is Ben Affleck. He went to Vadge's party solo.

amanda_jf said...

I don't know if Toby Macguire was at any parties, but it reminds me of him. He went to rehab for alcohol abuse apparently.

yesandno said...

Disagree with Derek, EVERYONE remembers RDJ as a wreck. How could you not, he is the poster bad boy for drugs and alcohol. His career is nothing but dips and comebacks. This is someone who went to rehab on a low profile while RDJ is completely open about his rehab stints and that adds to his charm. This blind is about someone who is not open about their struggle with addiction. Also there is no way RDJ would take painkillers as an addict. Not RDJ.

Ellenshn said...

this one is supposed to be Ben if I remember correctly Lainey said last week she would soon reveal why Ben looked so stoned at Oscar afterparty. Also Ben allegedly broke his ribs during Chirstmas Holiday, postponed the filming of Batman Vs Superman. Plus Lainey had been making up her Ben Affleck/Jennifer Garner saga for years. You'll know if you follow her blog for a while. I don't know if she is just one crazy fan girl who put her fantasy on her gossip blog rather than AO3 or there actually are some people pay her to write. But I don't consider this one a blind riddle. This one is only fan fiction.

beth said...

Ben Affleck was definitely injured this past December while skiing and B v S was pushed back a month as a result. So CLEARLY this blind is trying to be about Ben Affleck. Whether it's true or not, I'm not sure... He's really been working non-stop, so I have a hard time believing he's slipping back into substance abuse in a major way...

Fashionably Mode said...

this is someone whose wife does not look like a model, hence the he does for the tall model type. Jen Garner fits the description.
