Today's Blind Items - Down And Dirty

#1 - This former multiple late night talk show host has two children. One he acknowledges and one he doesn't because of their race.

#2- I guess this A-/B+ list mostly television actress got what she wanted by sleeping with that married almost network executive. More episodes of her show.

#3 - The pregnancy of this B list mostly television actress is going to be tough to hide, but she wants to start filming her middling hit show again so producers can't replace her. She is hoping they will write it in.

#4 - This married A+ list mostly movie actor was forced to abandon his car in the strip club parking lot he was visiting because of an oil leak in the streets. I would love to hear the explanation he gave his very conservative wife about why he took a cab home from a business meeting.

1. Conan has been on multiple networks... could it be him?

FSP said...

#3 - AnnaLynne McCord

Seven of Eleven said...

Does Leno have kids? He seems the type to ignore what he doesn't want.

#4 - an oil leak is an oil leak. He could say he pulled over at the nearest parking lot when the engine started smoking. And Tom Hanks would never.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Duh

Lady Heisenberg said...

2 could Whitney Cummings or Kat Dennings

derek harvey said...

I wish 2 was The Mindy Project cause I want it to be renewed. Zooey can suck a spikey one...

derek harvey said...

I think the Whitney show is a lost cause and 2 Broke Girls is a hit already I think?

Seven of Eleven said...

@LadyH, Kat Dennings! OK, totally OT, but I finished the audiobook version of "The Ocean at the End of the Lane". It was read by the author - the amazing Neil Gaiman - and at the very end, in the acknowledgements, he mentions Kat Dennings as one of the readers of his early manuscript. And then I saw THIS on Twitter!

@Lucas, your girl has good taste. :D

Tricia Shaw said...

#1 is George Lopez

The Real Dragon said...

Tom Hanks. Everyone is always mention Batfflek. im give you a break, Buddy.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

The Mindy Project actually beat New Girl in the ratings last week. I think it has crawled out of the middling area. and yeah, Zooey can suck it.

Kno Won Uno said...

#4 - seriously? If your car is having problems, you leave it in the closest place that doesn't have active traffic. Side of the road, parking lot. He shouldn't need a complicated explanation. My car was leaking oil, I had to take a cab, I'll pick it up tomorrow/have it towed/whatever. It's not even a thing, in my opinion.

Bacon Ranch said...

Hiding a pregnancy is done all the time. Think Elaine on Seinfeld, they just positioned her behind the couch or shot her from the neck up for scenes/heavy coat/sitting down with a pillow.
Who could it be that it's not easy to mask?

Tricia Shaw said...

Lopez
messing(the mysteries of Laura which is shooting)
Sarah hyland
Affleck

Tricia Shaw said...

Scratch hyland..she's Abc

Nope said...

I think #2 is supposed to be SMG but I don't buy it. At all.

SusanB said...

There was a big oil leak in LA last night from a broken 20 inch pipe - CNN said it was knee deep in some streets - Perhaps that's the oil leak referred to #4.

VIPblonde said...

@FSP At least the rating's right ;)

Jason Blue Eyes said...

#2 Rachel Bilson and her red poo.

Kitten Caboodle said...

The Mindy Project was renewed for a third season. Mindy was at the upfronts.

Flora Goforth said...

SusanB,

It happened right outside of a strip club.

Tara said...

I don't think the last one is Afflect - Garner doesn't seem "conservative" to me. She's done some steamy work like Alias and Elektra, has definitely worn some sexy clothes on red carpets, has been divorced once, and she and Ben are known Democrats. So if a wife not wanting a husband to go to strip clubs is "very conservative" then I'm very conservative too. Rita Wilson might be a more promising guess IMO.

Kno Won Uno said...

OK, so his car got stuck in an oil leak disaster-type sitch.
Yes, that requires an explanation.
If you get struck by lightning in a strip club, someone's bound to notice your location.
Or something.
How far am I from Friday?

Snapdragon said...

Whoever #1 is: you're a POS.

Jessi said...

1) Conan
2) SMG show was canceled. As far as Mindy, that would be shocking to me- goodness I hope not. I just recently read her book, highly recommend, it's hilarious! Anyway I'm going with the Zoey on this.
3) ??
4) Affleck! Dirty boy.

Virginia Squatch said...

I think that Conan has 2 kids with his wife, so thank god it's not him. Is Fallon the one that was apparently all butthurt that his wife used donor eggs for their kid? Is he racist?

#1 is Kilborn - hosted "Sports Center," "The Daily Show" and "The Late Late Show," and has one acknowledged son that he fathered in his 20's

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Arsenio is a major prick. When he starred in his brief sitcom for ABC in 1996, he wasn't used to memorizing lines so he would yell at the crew and writers because he had trouble remembering them. Memorizing a 1/2 hour script was a lot different than memorizing 5 minutes of jokes for a late night show and Arsenio just wasn't up to the task. His only mode of expression to writer's was, "Shut up and write me some fucking jokes." ABC cancelled his show in the spring of 1997. The crew was glad to not have to deal with him anymore.

Topper Madison said...

#4 Who's car is visible in that aerial TV footage?

hairydawg said...

Almost network means The CW, so I'm going with Rachel Bilson for #2.

SusanB said...

Leno doesn't have any kids.

B Demp said...

#2 courtney cox

auntliddy said...

Tara- wilson is supp to be loudmouthed shrew. Hardly conservative.

auntliddy said...

I think one is def Arsenio. Ive seen him exhibit some racist behavior on his past talk show. I cld see him ignoring white kid. He's a big phoney drama queen.

Erin B said...

@Bob BobLaw - Good guess with Kilborn. He's a dick. I can believe he'd do that. It does say former so that rules out Conan & Fallon.

I'll go with Bilson for #2. Beards need sex too!

Wen said...

Arsenio for #1. He's a racist on the level of The Camel and Gayfish.

FrenchGirl said...

4/Ben Affleck and his vintage car

FrenchGirl said...

4/ Affleck has a vintage Chevelle http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2375435/Ben-Afflecks-vintage-car-breaks-stops-doughnuts-daughter-Violet.html

hairydawg said...

oil leak does sound like an older car. nice sleuthing FrenchGirl.

Angela said...

#2 is Kristin Kreuk for Beauty and the Beast. The ratings are terrible (0.70-0.90m), and everybody assumed that the show would be canceled. It was already a wonder that it got a second season. Now, it's getting a third.
Hart of Dixie is a little less puzzling, considering that it got the same poor ratings only when it was airing on a Friday night, and that a fourth season could reach the syndication threshold. As The CW and Warner Bros are part of the same group (The CW is a joint venture with CBS), there are reasons to do this.

Renoblondee said...

Zooey is a producer of her show. Not her.

fancyscreenname said...

Arsenio is friends with lots of Caucasians. I need proof that he's a racist asshole.

The people come on his show and discuss previous private moments with him.

Kat has left the building said...

Wow really? So that would explain why he hasn't worked in so long! I didn't buy his story that he took time off to be a dad or whatever he said.

Kat has left the building said...

"an oil leak in the streets"

I take that to refer to the giant oil spill in the streets of LA yesterday, I think it said Glendale? Not a car leaking oil.

airhead said...

Maybe she just tickled the monkey

Harry Knuckles said...

Maybe Affhole, because he's an asshole, but his "vintage car" is a fully restored Chev. Pretty much a new car.

Harry Knuckles said...

Talking about #4 and the oil leaky car. Don't bug me.

Vestal Surgeon said...

Write in a sudden weight gain ala JJ in madmen. Fat suit and upper body shots. Problem solved.

hairydawg said...

@ Harry. My 67 Mustang GT fastback was as nice as Ben's Chevelle but still fucked up a couple times a year. Just the nature of older cars.

Countess Eden said...

So what actor is close to Glendale?

@Angela you rock! Love someone with TV knowledge!!

Off to google. When I did that the other day, I got lost and found the end of the internet. It was a Truman Show moment.

FlirtyChick74 said...

@Bob +1

FlirtyChick74 said...

Thank you fancy

Harry Knuckles said...

dawg, I'm seriously envious of you having a '67 GT. The first muscle car I drove was also a '67 Mustang GT, a red convertible, black interior, 390 of course, with a 4 speed. My buddy was a salesman at the lot where it was for sale. Gave me a call, went over and we took it out for about half an hour. Boiling hot day so we of course dropped the top. What a blast. I was 19 and have been crazy for convertible muscle cars ever since, and especially Mustang GTs.

Sherry said...

I'm liking the Kilborn guess although I too first thought Arsenio.

So 'splain to me why all those good shows got cancelled and then they renew some B&B POS I have never heard of? Who was here yesterday that had mad programming skills?

How is a hit show "middling"?

I'm voting Tom Hanks for the A+ that got stuck in the LA oil spill.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

The oil leak was a facility next door that transports oil from one city to another. It was a GYZER here in SF Valley. All the strippers had to out ON their clothes and get out. Like 10 card got submerged. Hahaha. I saw one of the strippers (on news ) trying to get past it, um, if that's the cream of the crop I'd say the cream was ...souring.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

10 cars got submerged. Card was a typo.

My dream car! What color?

surfer said...

@Sincerely - I don't get what's so funny about an oil leak, and cars being damaged.

__-__=__ said...

Or Marie on Breaking Bad.

PookieTwo said...

#1 is Craig Kilborn who has a biracial son, who I thought he always acknowledged - ? Perhaps not.

#4 is someone caught up in the oil leak in Atwater Village, which happened next to a strip club. Bogus blind, but I'll go with Denzel for this one.

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

From that NBC link: "Oil shot 15 to 20 feet upward and onto a nearby business, The Gentlemen’s Club, coating the windows."

That's nothing. You should see what coats the inside of the place! :P

Jennifer said...

Actresses get pregnant all the time and have to hide it on the show, easy to do. This makes me think its someone in an action movie, or something that cant just shoot head shots and call it a day. MIddling hit show, B list actress....Katie Cassidy/Arrow?

CindyK said...

1. Bill Maher

Gypsytrill said...

1) David Letterman

di butler said...

Kilborn acknowledged the biracial kid before I think, also.

Cummings? Mindy?
