Blind Items Revealed

November 19, 2013

This former A list mostly movie actress who was once in the top three actresses on the planet and still has A list name recognition is lonely. It is not like she is old. She is aging but has so many fake parts that aging might be on hold forever. She has an A list mostly movie actor husband but he is the cause of what is going on in our actresses' life.

She tends to shop a lot. She is out shopping almost everyday. At this point no one is willing to hire her for the roles she wants. She thinks she is in her 30's and wants to be a sex symbol. She can't accept that she has become older and needs to play mothers and maybe even grandmothers to get roles. So, she shops and spends hours in stores and only buys enough to keep the sales people talking to her each time she goes in. She might spend $200-300 a day which seems like a lot but is probably less than she would spend on therapy and doesn't make a dent in the millions of dollars she has.

Her husband has not slept with her in ages and prefers women in their 20's who give him that extra bit of kink he has learned to crave. Our actress would probably be up for it because she definitely used to be up for anything but he doesn't even give her the chance any longer. He trots the wife out for red carpets and photo ops and when she is sober.

He says he is spending time away from her because she is not sober any longer. A very very close relative told me though that he is the reason she slipped and is back boozing and doing some drugs again. That she was trying to face being rejected by him and his insistence they not publicly split. She wanted to but he told her she would never get anyone ever again. The guy is a an a-hole and she just smiles and pretends to the world that everything is great while she sinks further and further into a pit of depression.

This will be revealed.

Melanie Griffith/Antonio Banderas

VIP got it.
Never blame others though. Alcoholism and depression are her issues - not his. In my non psychiatrist opinion

sugarbread maker said...

like duh!

VIPblonde said...

Nailed it :)

rll said...

Poor Mel

Habibti said...

She had plenty of issues even before she married him so I highly doubt the marriage was 'healthy' to start off with. She can be Alist again as she is still loved. She just needs the right role and stop pretending to be a dumb bimbo as she is a smart cookie.

VIPblonde said...

So, what's his kink? I'm just asking for a friend ;)

Me2 said...

I agree with VIP, Very unfair to blame others for addiction &depression. melanie needs to sit down with herself, spend time figuring out why she keeps finding these men. I remember reading last day or so her counter to antonio saying the family went to counseling etc during rehab to support her and her counter was that he was a good man but he (not an exact quote far from it) didn't do as much as he thought he did/wasn't enough/wasn't good enough.

she comes across as needy and having a bit of a victim complex. I'm sorry for the lady, and I've heard she's been thru alot but......its not antonios fault shes boozing & drugging again. Hope she pulls out of it

Krystie Rachelle said...

I'm with VIP, I was hoping that the kink would be what was revealed in this blind..

OneEyeCharlie said...

I believe he likes Puss in Boots.

Renoblondee said...

Sounds like they're both assholes.

Krystie Rachelle said...

^5 Charlie. Well played sir, well played.

Pattie said...

She has terrible taste in men, for heavan's sake she married Don Johnson twice.

And someone should tell Antonio that he has aged out of his Latin Boy Toy role too. He is going to have a hard time finding a long-term benefactress who is under 65!

Pip said...

She can't blame anyone for the drinking, but he is still a piece of shit. She is not a good actress. That could be one of the reasons why she isn't getting work.

kelli_girl said...

And to add insult to injury, she's got that HIDEOUS tattoo of his name on her arm!

Dingle Barry said...

Where is TTM to say, "Life's a bitch y'all"

Glad Mel got the strength up to kick his greasy assholio has been A+ list in name recognition only foreign born
selfishness to the curb.

JoElla said...

I have a feeling, she will bounce back really well from this.

Or at least I hope so.

hothotheat said...

I like her but her issues are her issues not his.

I need to know about the kink.....

N. Twinkie said...

I find it hard to believe that Banderas is A list.

Henriette said...

I think everyone guessed this one. Like I always said, Griffith was just screwed up from the get go. She had really no upbringing and has been used by men for YEARS. Don Johnson started messing with her when she was 14, and McKenzie Phillips talked about how she did threesomes with her when they were 16, so Griffith has always had problems.

I dunno Pip, I thought years ago she was actually well regarded as a talented comedic actress. she had 2 roles prior to working girl where she was a riot. her movies something wild and especially body double she could be really funny.

i read or heard somewhere that when she got involved with Don Johnson again that he started influencing her script choices, I always thought if she'd trusted her own choices that her career & life might've turned out different.

Meauxelle said...

Well done, sir! iPad, table & little bit of wall all got a thorough spray of coffee....

sandybrook said...

I hope while she's been out shopping everyday she was out shopping for someone to take that Antonio tat off her arm. Its big and costly.

Renoblondee said...

That was Tatum O ' Neal.

Froggy England said...

This is really quite sad. It's terrible how people who once loved each other end up abusing the one they used to love. I also want to know,,,what's the kink?

Lovelyloie said...

I'm going to go watch Working Girl. I love that movie.

Me2 said...

She was nominated for an oscar for that role I think?

msgirl said...

One of the 3 biggest in the world? I don't think so.

MISCH said...

I feel sorry for her, she looks so old when the camera comes in close…her skin is fried, she's wrinkled…and I ask why ? The sun or drugs ?

Steven O said...

Exactly. At no time was Melanie G ever a top three actress in the world.

Froggy England said...

Working girl was huge, she would have been way up there at that point in terms if recognition,

JenSacks said...

I wish she hadn't gotten so much plastic surgery. She would have looked lovely if she'd let herself age naturally. Now there's no hope.

Jerry Seinfeld said...

Tippi looks better than Melanie.

Randa E said...

HE CANT CAUSE ANYTHING SHE DOESNT ALLOW TO HAPPEN.

nurysp said...

bad choice from the jump, mel

BAD choice
men like that are no good if your fragile to begin with

nancer said...

i don't agree she's a bad actress. i thought she was perfect in 'working girl', my favorite movie of hers. she did one with don johnson too where they'd lost a child and i thought she was good in that.

her relationship with this guy ruined her career. she's been trying to be young enough for him all these years and she can't pull it off anymore.

it's not his fault she's not sober though.

rajahcat said...

she needs a good talking to

you are Melanie Griffith for god's sake.......pull yourself together.

maybe she's just too nice (not hard enough on the inside) to survive celebhood........not enough mental toughness

I used to just love her-sad

Senor Salty said...

She gives me the willies when I see her. Between her baby girl voice, the smoking, drugs, drinking.. She's repulsive. Sure, he's an asshole, but I wouldn't sleep with her either. She drove Don Johnson away too.

Allison said...

She was so cool in John Waters' "Cecil B Demented"

Seven of Eleven said...

LOL @ Charlie!

I do not like her voice either. It bugs me to no end.

Puss in Boots, on the other hand, has a smoking voice.

Sad they didn't work out, but I guess this means we'll get a crap ton of reveals now.

IKR? The rest of it was so obviously her, but Julia, Sandra, Meg, Michelle, Cher, Goldie, Meryl, and Demi were all bigger than Melanie in her prime. She had a brief window and that was it.

Kels said...

Paradise is the movie, Elijah Wood and Thora Birch are in it.

Poor Teeny...(hope u guys have seen Now and Then, Melanie is pretty funny)

Lol captain Charlie

Holly Westwood said...

I heard a great story once about how stupid Antonio Banderas is. He was shooting a film with a shoot-out scene and the budget was so low they couldn't use real guns with fake bullets so instead they got these cheap fake guns.
The director told Antonio to pretend it was a real gun and that they would just add the firing sounds later during the editing.
And what did Antonio do? Every scene he pretended to shoot the gun while making "BANG BANG BANG" noises with his mouth LMAO. They could not get him to stop he didn't understand that yes they could edit the sound but they couldn't edit his face out mouthing BANG BANG BANG the whole time.

MadLyb said...

This news had me watching, "Working Girl" yesterday and I really enjoyed it. Sigourney Weaver is amazing in this, and Melanie Griffith's voice is really soothing. She's a good actress and good at honing the sympathetic character, even though some people don't think she is because of her voice.

Antonio may be aging, but he still has years of voice work ahead of him. I adored him about 20 years ago. Both he and Val Kilmer were major, major crushes. What happened? :(

trudi said...

If Melanie needs a relationship to stay sober could she think about staying sober for her children so they don't have to clean up after sloppy Mom ?

Just a thought.

auntliddy said...

I just have a soft spot for her ans wish her well. She may be stronger than she thinks. Plus, stella- her daughter- turns 18 soon. Mb she waited til she was this age to divorce for stellas sake.

Red said...

Melanie has ruined her looks with bad & excessive plastic surgery. Maybe she hoped it would makeher look young enough for Antonio? Sad either way.

If she was waiting to split until Stella was "old enough", that's another mistake. Teenagers know very well what's going on & watching the dysfunction does not help at all-actually does harm.

steph said...

Just wanted to say that I thought Melanie was fine in Hawaii Five-0 this year as Danny's mom. So I guess she can accept "mom" roles?

Procrastibator said...

Allison : I LOVE John waters.

Gypsytrill said...

I have zero sympathy for this woman. She was born with a silver spoon, a true child of Hollywood royalty. She took up with Don Johnson when she was barely out of diapers, she has had several relationships which produced children. She is whiny and not very bright. She is NOT a good actress but she has had numerous chances her entire life, and has blown them all. For an attractive woman with tons of money and solid show-business connections, she is a basket case and it is all her own fault.

Studio54 said...

@gypsytrill - Absolutely right Gypseytrill. She's always been men crazy, chose men over her career, broke up a marriage to get Antonio, gave up her career to watch over him that he was not cheating on her, and this is her reward. Too bad. She's a bimbo to boot. She should have left this creep years ago, but her ego is just as big as his, and she wanted to look they they were happily married, and she had no career to fall back on.

The Enquirer said...

Unfortunately she goes for the strong bad boy types and those guys are jerks. She needs to adjust her priorities and she'll find the nice guy she deserves. Hopefully she finds someone age appropriate and doesn't go all desperate and start paying some young guy to be her date. Please Melanie. Don't go that route.

cowbulls said...

No way was she a top 3 at any point.

Lula Surber said...

I think Antonio has a much stronger movie catalog than Melanie (Team Banderas - sorry but I love a lot of his movies). Consider the very first American movie Antonio did was Mambo Kings. He didn't speak English at the time and somebody bullshitted the director - or whoever hired him - that he could. He learned his entire speaking role phonetically. I don't think there's a snowball's chance in hell that Melanie could have EVER done that. Let's don't forget he also sang his own parts in Mambo Kings (the soundtrack is awesome) and he also did his own vocals in Desperado. The dude can sing and act in TWO languages. Also consider that if he was a giant American douche, he would be calling the friggin paps every time he stepped out on Melanie to make sure he was featured on E! And TMZ and Entertainment tonight on a daily basis (I'm looking at you Reese Witherspoon). I'm sure they're going to be dogging them both now but I'd say they've both kept it pretty low key for several years. I commend them both for that. She needs to pack up her pity party and quit blaming everyone else for her problems. Quite fucking with her face and get serious about acting. Get on with your life. This isn't your first divorce, it's not like you haven't been here before girl SNAP OUT OF IT!

Sprink said...

@MadLyb, interesting summary. I agree about her soothing qualities.

She's totally underrated (I think because her personal life gets in the way for audiences), but for my money she has the same vulnerability that's so rare and has made Julia Roberts such a star.

Griffith had it in spades, even more so than Roberts, but--for whatever reasons--blew it.

And if anyone thinks that "vulnerability" isn't good acting, it is. Many of the greats can't do it, no matter how hard they try.

Sprink said...

@Kels, I liked Now and Then. Even though it did ask me to believe that Gaby Hoffman grows up to look like Demi Moore.

Missyrocks53 said...

Puzzled by top 3 comment as, yes, she was big after Working Girl, but that's it. Also, while it's sad for her, how you get em is how you lose em. Didn't he cheat on first wife with her? What goes around...

sugarbread maker said...

@sprink if you look at early early demi photos with her first husband she had a Huge Nose. Not far off from gaby Hoffman. Fred Moore a musician. Google

Unknown said...

asshole

Sprink said...

@sugarbread Maybe I can see it here, but most of her early pictures seem to look pretty much the same as now, even the Freddy era.

Mostly what she and Gaby had in common was hair colour.

And for the record, I think Gaby Hoffman is lovely. Not a traditional beauty, but very compelling. Despite the hairy armpits. :-D

kit said...

Before English, he was SMOKING HOT. His movies with Pedro Almodovar are awesome.

Matador
Law of Desire
Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down
Women on the Verge of Nervous Breakdown

After English, he was just hot. ;)

I'd still. In a minute.

Sorry Melanie - that was never gonna work out for you in the long haul. Karma and personal issues don't mix. :/

Henriette said...

I will always remember Banderis for Vadge going after him in Truth or Dare.

Sprink said...

And missing, Henriette. And missing.

Actually, I loved it when she realised he wasn't going for it and she did the classic girl thing of "Well, he wasn't *that* hot after all." It was one of the few funny things I've seen her do.
