Blind Item #3

This C+ list mostly movie actress who used to be A list and still has A++ list name recognition skipped a charity event because the organizers wouldn't pay her. They were willing to fly her in for the event and pay for her hotel, but the actress wanted them to pay for an entourage of five, a private jet, hotel for three nights and pay her $50K. Everyone who did attend, did so for free and most didn't even ask for their flights to be paid.

Nobody could possibly want Logan at a charity event, right?

sandybrook said...

every 3 or 4 months this screwing over a charity blind gets recycled. :(

Violet said...

My guess was poor. Sandy's is way better although A++? I thought even Princess Di only warranted an A+ the other day.

aemish said...

Ya, I was gonna say.. didn't we just have this one?

Ratings are always subjective opinion of whatever Enty is working at the time.

Kno Won Uno said...

The ratings change sometimes. Call me crazy, but to me "charity" & "paycheck" are mutually exclusive. This is obviously why I don't have a job with a non-profit. Kno Won be crazy.

Violet said...

I really should give up talking about ratings. But my definition of A++ name recognition is that my mother would know who this person is.

Kno Won Uno said...

Did The List give an explanation of Name Recognition grading? I don't recall that part.
C+ List with A++ List Name Recognition?
Monica Lewinsky?

Jeannie said...

Sharon stone.. I just read about it somewhere.

sandybrook said...

Monic only faked swallowing she's no actress.

laura ramona said...

Julia Roberts

laura ramona said...

Ofc she is an actress. porn one one the CCTV of the security lol

Sherry said...

Who was the answer before? Lea Michelle something like that?

Indeed these do all seem the same except for the demands surrounding their attendance. And why were they willing to pay this person when others weren't asking. Oh hell, we've beat this horse already.

audrey said...

I was thinking Sharon Stone too.

Stu Rat said...

So someone didn't do a charity event because the charity wouldn't meet their demands.

Wooh. Scandalous.

Pam Anderson just filled in for SHaron Stone at an event that she didn't show up to do.

I read a book a few years ago about a guy who was a promoter slash fund raiser in Hollywood and in DC. He used to dream up galas to give someone famous a big award for being a fabulous humanitarian and then the bucks would flow into the coffers and there would be a big payoff for all the players. Sharin Stine was one if those he had as an honoree and she always demanded big $$ to show up to be awarded. Also every big name designer, jeweler and whoever makes that would go round would cough up expensive items to gift the honorees and presenters for them showing up and getting their 15 seconds on the red carpet. Then investors would spring for really big $ to hobnob with all the stars thinking it was going to the charity. I was shocked at first when I read what a scam most if those humanitarian awards parties are. And Sharon Stone was on of the worst.

lc said...

This is something KimK would pull but she is not an actress

AB said...

Sharin Stine = Sharon Stone

Renoblondee said...

That's a shame @AB. Totally can see that happening unfortunately.

Heather said...

@sandybrook thanks for the heads up so I can save my 'Brian' power for later :)

*waves to gatorgirl*

Try 3 or 4 weeks

Maria said...

AB: I know what you're talking about. I know people from the non profits and they tell me everybody knows celebs use the "humanitarian" label just for two different reason: because they want to be paid (i.e. Sharon Stone) or because they need good publicity (i.e. Sean Penn)

auntliddy said...

Diisheartening, but believabke. How else does stone make money? She doesnt work and shes crazy as a loon.

Nutty_Flavor said...

@AB, very interesting. Can you remember the title?

Jacq said...

Who would want HER at a charity event?? Is she the charity recipient?

__-__=__ said...

Sounds like a nice gig, if you can get it. Except for the DC part. That just reeks of skeeze.

There was an article yesterday that Sharon Stone was supposed to host the World Music Awards but backed out bc they wouldn't pay her in advance. Then they got Psmela Anderson to host but ended up canceling bc of lack of funds. Does that count as a charity event?

leemonada76 said...

My first thought too

bellaluna said...

Only from a certain number of her "benefactors." ;)

Seven of Eleven said...

Huh. Last time around, it was Nicole Kidman wanting $25k.

Hey, @Heather!

Amfar.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

I've always suspected some of the charities to be scams. Seems I recently read some wannabe rapper is starting a charity....it made me actually laugh out loud.

@AB: I'm not surprised. I took a course in non-profit management and we discussed these types of things. Fascinating class. You literally had to throw away any ideals that you had about fundraising and the wealthy and see things from a brand new (and to me, very upside down/inside out) perspective.
