Blind Item #8

This former A list mostly television actress turned director was on vacation a few weeks ago and apparently a staff member at the hotel where our actress was staying asked our actress about the woman she was traveling with because the woman asked the front desk for a key to the room. Our actress went ballistic. All the staffer wanted to know was whether it was ok to give the woman a key, but our actress started screaming about how the hotel was discriminating against gay couples. The staffer didn't care about any of that, and would have asked the same question if it had been a guy asking because our actress was the only name on the room. Maybe our previously married actress thought she was going to get forced out into the open with her sexuality.

Penny Marshall

I'm struggling with the sense making today. If she's afraid of being outed, why would she scream at the staffer about discrimination against gay couples? Wouldn't that be outing herself right there?

Kno Won Uno said...

I'm confused. If I didn't think anyone knew I was gay, why would I immediately jump to discrimination against gay couples?
If I were stopped for oh...running a stop sign, I hope I wouldn't say "What body in whose trunk, officer? And how dare you ask me?!"
Since the entire thing seems nonsensical, I'll assume it's bullsh!t.

Could this be Jodie?

Bacon Ranch said...

Penny is the one who came to mind.
Rumors for years and she's probably super sensitive about keeping her privacy. Not enough to give someone a hotel key, though....huh.

Violet said...

Helen Hunt

Frosty said...

Penny Marshall

Bacon Ranch said...

The director part fits Sun but Jodie has never been married.

Kno Won Uno said...

And if you're THAT closeted, why not ask for two keys at check in? I think this is moronic.

Sunny said...

Betty Thomas

SometimesJenny said...

None of this makes sense. I call BS.

di butler said...

While I could buy Helen Hunt, she has been in two very long term relationships with dudes, one marriage, and a 10 yr old. Longoria likes the peen an awfully lot for straight up lesbian, so gotta go with Laverne DeFazio. She's one of the NYC Pride Parade Grand Marshalls this year. Just saw that at Towleroad, yesterday.

David Howes said...

...and while checking in, you can notify the front desk people the names of people you want to have a key -- even if they are NOT on the hotel registration! We did this for our kids while traveling.

Tricia Shaw said...

No I just saw an actress on Kelly &Michael who fits this..said she directed something recently and loves it..
Damn gonna drive me insane! I'll think of it

Tricia Shaw said...

Elizabeth moss maybe,,,,

Dingle Barry said...

Oprah...and you get an outing, and YOU get an outing...

Seven of Eleven said...

LOL @ Dingle!

Basil said...

I'll go with Penny Marshall, but at this stage, would she still be considered an actress?

Kathy K said...

Penny Marshall. Says former A-list actress turned director.

Betty Thomas has come out, I think.

trixa25 said...

Courtney Cox

sugarbread maker said...

kate walsh or marcia cross

JenSacks said...

Why does everyone guess Eva? Just curious.

hothotheat said...

Sarah Polley.

M. Brown said...

Is Amanda Bearse out? Was she ever A list?

FS said...

Jodie Foster is out, and either EW or E Online is just now reporting she got married over the weekend.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Love it, Dingle!

Sillygurl said...

+I

Wen said...

I thought Penny came out. Hmmmm...

Matthew said...

The only two actresses I associate from switching from acting to directing successfully are Polley and Lake Bell.

Polley wasn't A list TV but is divorced.

Maybe Bell was A during Boston Legal, but she is still married.

Sabrina said...

Penny Marshall is the only one who fits.

kpist said...

Definitely not Foster, she was movie, not tv

JHL said...

It's Helen Hunt, some pictures were posted of her on vacation last week. Since the birth of her child and the end of her TV show she has been less afraid of showing who she really is.

Dingle Barry said...

I can't wait for the day when sexual orientation is no longer a pearl clutching moment. I don't care about others sex lives, sure it clears things up at a mixer but then it's a "who the hell really gives a rats ass?" Not me and my family. Thank The Lord.

Princess Nobody said...

I like the Elisabeth Moss guess @ Tricia Shaw

Dingle Barry said...

That being said, Count has some amazing tales of conquest and fantasy.

Tricia Shaw said...

Thanks princess

LowKey said...

It's ALWAYS Eva. She's the female Ben Affleck.

Michael said...

I got to go with Penny Marshal as well. A list for Laverne in Shirley and now a pretty good director. Used to be married to Rob Reiner so I can see why she would prefer women

cowbulls said...

Penny but I don't understand how a woman that age wouldn't know the routine at hotels concerning who can get a key to a hotel room. I would like to think that if I asked for a key to Kate Beckinsale's room I would be refused.

S. Humphreys said...

I thought Penny was out to.

ldylkng said...

I say Courtney Cox too

Alvin said...

Helen Hunt
