Blind Item #9 - 70's Hollywood

This still A list mostly television actress got the iconic role that made her A list by sleeping with the wife of a producer. The wife was convinced our actress was in love with her and the wife kept talking up the actress to her husband who finally cast our actress. The actress promptly dropped the wife and began a year long affair with the husband.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Jaclyn Smith? Or Victoria Principle? This is a great blind!

Lady Heisenberg said...

I read this as still alive today...

MontanaMarriott said...

LMAO @Reno
Yeah this is vague enough that it could be any of the Angels from Charlie's Angels or Lynda Carter from Wonder Woman. It really can be any TV actress from the 70's.

MM said...

Mary Tyler Moore (based on absolutely nothing.)

AlexF said...

My first instincts were Farrah Fawcett or Lynda Carter. Gonna go with Wonder Woman.

fancyscreenname said...

Juicy!

sandybrook said...

I wanted to say someone like Victoria Principal, Daisy Dukes., Linda Gray or Linda Evans but I do not think they are still A listers.

Lady Heisenberg said...

These two don't work as much the past couple years. Erin Gray, Jane Seymour, or Lynda Carter

Angelo Pappas said...

Susan Lucci

You wanted to say that, sandypoopsiebooboo, but your stepdad won't let you.

Sandy, will you marry me?

You know what they say...

Lindsay Whats-her-name from the Bionic Woman.

Suzyanne Guzicki said...

Angie Dickenson?

QueenAnne Guido said...

Bea Arthur FTW! Someone please link to the oil portrait.


MAUDE started out as a character on ALL IN THE FAMILY who would spin off to her own show.

Say it loud and proud.

Lol@Queen
You are thinking of Lindsay Wagner but I think Bionic Woman came in the 80s. Spinoff.

+1

Sandy...


We could make a beautiful team.



While you keep forging ahead in the comment section,







I'll cook and clean and take care of the baby.

Zach said...

Maybe Cloris?

Snapdragon said...

Bionic Woman is late 70s (1976-1978 to be exact). Is Lyndsey Wagner still considered A-list?

Kym Is A Messy Canopener said...

C'mon sandy! I need your approval!

Frosty said...

Comedy? Drama? Miniseries? Nominations?

I'd go with Farrah, overall. If the person is still living, Sally Field (Sybil) or Susan Blakely(Rich Man Poor Man)

D Brown said...

I'm focused on Aaron and Candy. During the 70's he produced a remarkable series of hits. Leaving out the series with limited actresses - such as Starsky & Hutch, SWAT etc) and some one season shows you're left with:

Mod Squad (Peggy Lipton)
The Rookies (Kate Jackson)
Family (Kristy McNichol, Meredith Baxter)
Charles Angels (Kate Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, Jacklyn Smith)
Hart to Hart (Stefanie Powers)

The problem is the definition of "still A list". Most of these ladies were once A list, probably A+, but currently (with the obvious exeption of Farrah) could be described as semi-retired.

I note that Kate Jackson sequed from one Spelling series (The Rookies) to another (Charlie's Angels). Given her internet reputation, for being difficult to work with, this seems unlikely unless she was a favorite.

anda marie said...

Farrah was my first thought.

scarletscout said...

Meredith Baxter; FAMILY; Produced by Aaron Spelling

JAC said...

Guys. It was Megan Draper, remember?

Leekalicious said...

Cybill Shepherd always seemed to have shenanigans of some sort going, but Moonlighting was produced in the 80s.

Clark Elliot said...

Sally Field had 2 Iconic TV roles, Gidget & The Flying Nun, and then went on to the feature film role 'Norma Rae' and won an Oscar. (Iconic?) She was my first thought, and still A-List TV & Film actress today.

Andrea said...

Kate Jackson was my first thought.

msgirl said...

This blind makes it sound like the hit was in the 70s, Sally Field was famous way before that.

Cee Kay said...

Oh, I see the lunatic's back out of the asylum. I'm outta here...

Basil said...

This really does sound like Farrah Fawcett, and I suppose you could say her death make her back into A???

NaughtyNurse said...

Sounded like Farrah, except for the "still A list" part. That would imply the person is still alive, kicking, and working. Heather Locklear is 10 years too young. Lynda Carter sounds good, but it breaks my heart to think of Wonder Woman on a casting couch.

Studio54 said...

Farrah. She was only on Charlie's Angels one year.

Jaiden_S said...

Since it says "still A list" I'll go with Kate Jackson over Farrah.

EvieShackles said...

Is Suzanne Somers still an A? She was Krissy Snow

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Jessica Lange, King Kong (1976)- she played the hot blonde who was kidnapped by the ape.
Silvana Mangano (wife)
Dino de Laurentiis (made ton of high profile films)

atm mostly TV (American Horror Story) previously mostly film.

For some reason I am convinced she is secretly bi/les, because of the rumors of her and Sarah Paulson, who has dated older women in the past.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Orrrr. It has to be specifically about a TV-show role (like most people guess here) and not a movie role, in that case I'll stfu xD

Tab said...

Hmm... looking over that list of Arron Spelling shows, Family caught my eye as both lead females (Kristy McNichol & Meredith Baxter) are currently out lesbians. Of the two I'd say Meredith has the higher profile these days due to both Family and Family Ties.

Squeezebox said...

Florence Henderson. Carol Brady was such a minx!

RowdyRodimus said...

I'd still give my right arm for a night with Lynda Carter. Sorry, Boo. That'll be my one "If I get the chance" choice. (But you're still #1 to me)

Not that many still A list tv actresses from a hit show in the 70s. Is Suzanne Summers still A list?

Sillygurl said...

Ooooo me likey

Frosty said...

The reason I think Sally Field is that, while she starred in comedic tv roles in the 60s, Sybil established her as a serious actress. At the time that was a difficult cross over to make, and the miniseries was an "event" dealing with mental illness and all. Ah, those pre-Lifetime days of yore

Chief2224 said...

I want so badly for this to be Lynda Carter

Sassafrass said...

I'm new here, do you know much about this entry person and their sources??? I've never seen so much dirt..

di butler said...

Farrah is FOREVER A list. Heather Locklear?

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Judith Light? Was Who's The Boss in the 70s?

sugarbread maker said...

heather was 80s though

Henriette said...

I thought Farah Faucett too, but she dropped out of Charlie's Angels after the first year, which is amazing that she is so tied with that show when Cheryl Ladd was on longer. I'm gonna go with Susan Saint James or Lynda Carter.

Jon said...

The blind says still A list. The only one mentioned who this still might apply to is Susan Lucci. Or perhaps Deidre Hall? Both still A list in their TV world.

Melissa of Grand Island said...

This was my guess! Look at her still working on Dallas, she's SO great on it!! I was waiting to type this..

Lulu said...

Joan Collins

Slim Peachy said...

I really doubt Lynda Carter. She's a staunch churchie and moralist. It's not Anderson either who is not a long-time a-lister.

Most likely Deidre Hall who has been a fiercely closeted lesbian and has been working the same job since the 70s on DOOL.

Renoblondee said...

Deidre Hall is a lesbian? Really?

Alditha said...

I'm going to go with Angie Dickinson.
