Blind Items Revealed

June 28, 2014

This permanent A+ list mostly movie actor is being honored with a big award this fall, but wants to make sure that it does not turn into a roast. Just a tribute. The guy hates when people make fun of him and he has threatened to not show up if he hears it will be a roast.

Robert DeNiro (Friar's Club)

I'd certainly be too scare to make fun of him to his face.

Cleodacat said...

What a sourpuss, it's not like he's had a scandelous past.

Ray Nicolet said...

Oh Bobby, lighten up and some to the stoner party.

derek harvey said...

well he is an awesome actor and has the right to call the shots

JoElla said...

Hey everyone!

I am kinda bummed about this reveal. I don't want to think of DeNiro as no fun...

derek harvey said...

and he was HOT when he was younger

sandybrook said...

You talking to me? You talking to me!

NJ FireFighter said...

DeNiro, with no script in front of him, is inarticulate and almost wooden. It's amazing how he can "turn it on" when using someone else's words.

VIPblonde said...

Here you go, Derek! :)

derek harvey said...

@VIP loll--

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

I concur!!!

But Pacino melts my butter better. (Used to get them mixed up. Used to!)

FrenchGirl said...

It's totally idiot why accept to be honored at Friars Club if you don't want to be mocked

Ray Nicolet said...

hey now!

Lady Heisenberg said...

I liked Hollywood dime's blind about DeNiro better! Where you at girl? I hope DeNiro didn't ship you off to Belize for sharing that! ;)

LottaColada said...

@VIP, Whoa there! Something for the fellas too. ;-)

Eros said...

Love him!! And I totally understand. What fun is it sitting around watching and listening to others make fun of you. Id pass on that shit too.

figgy said...

I don't blame him, I am SHOCKED at how mean some of those roasts are!

meme deemed said...

In comparison to some others, his past has been "normal".

Except for his stupid involvement with the psycho-biatch Naomi Campbell

Brian said...

Hey, Bobby, if you frickin' retire already and stop pumping out absolute garbage, we won't roast you.

Deal?

Dolphy said...

No one makes fun of Bobby DeNiro.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

@NJFF. "Wooden" is interesting and good observation. As a female I chose to see him more as "quiet confidence" and / or "mysterious". Pfffft.

OT - my favorite steak place in the whole wide world is (was?) Arthur's. (Not in Hoboken but in _______(???)_. Near a train station. U know???
(Off to get coffee, then google)
I thought of asking Count, but I think he's So Jersey. I was thinking you were closer. IDK.

TalksTooMuch said...

Grudge Match deserves all the roasting it gets

Jessica Larson said...

Anyone can tell he has no sense of humor, but I don't know if I could sit through a roast.

NJ FireFighter said...

There were Arthur's steakhouses in Hoboken, New Brunswick and Morris Plains. The Emerson location was near a train station, not sure about the others.

EastCoaster said...

It's absolutely amazing. When interviewed, he's unable to disguise at all how uncomfortable he is. I wonder why he hasn't figured out yet how to fake it better.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

@Lotta - I own that shit on Blu-Ray. What? I'm a Bertolucci fan. Geez, you people.

olliebolliesnollie said...

Didn't he check Jay-Z once? Cause in that case I still like him.

LottaColada said...

@JBE- I wouldn't expect anything less from you. Nice blog BTW.

B. Profane said...

He's not wooden, he just doesn't like doing PR or dealing with the press. He's hosted SNL three times and they have satirized him, so he's not unwilling to be made fun of.

(He is wooden as an SNL host though. Legendarily terrible.)

One of my profs in grad school directed him in a play. Said he was quite nice and professional, just on the quiet side. He can be very demanding about getting notes from the director though, but everyone knows that about him.

Topper Madison said...

I concur on the "Just what do you think the Friar's Club is?" mentality. They're comedians! In exchange for being the butt of their jokes for an hour, they give you a prestigious award. And dinner.

Just don't show up, Bobby. Let someone with a sense of humor about themselves get the honor instead. What a baby.

Tina Mallette said...

Oh I think Bobby boy has the odd skeleton in his closet..

Bunni said...

What was H. Dime's blind? Bobby D. had a nice face, but those teeth.

@Sincerely,Your Friend - Pacino > DeNiro. Maybe not by a whole heck of a lot, but still. :-)

B. Profane said...

Pacino has been a scenery-chewer for the last couple of decades. He's lost most of his ability to underplay scenes. During the Godfather days they were comparable, but for quite a while it's been DeNiro better by leagues.

Tigercat said...

Bobby D is extremely shy.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Dime reported that DeNiro has a handful of young mistresses. He puts them all up in a string of nice apartments, I can't recall which area, but if I recall correctly, some swanky NYC neighborhood. BUT the main kick was that Bobby D has a type: the fuglier, the better.

Brian said...

@Lady H.

They are more appreciative...

B. Profane said...

No, DeNiro's type is well-known. He likes model-tall, pretty black women. He might have a string of jump-offs stashed around, but they'll be pretty and black.

WritergirlinLa said...

I have privileges at the Friar's Club. Trust me, it's a roast. If they were honoring him, then it would be at The Player's Club in NYC.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Thank you Lotta.

WriterGirl, From what I've observed, Robert enjoys a little ribbing as long as it's in the Billy Crystal/Robin Williams style but if you're talking actual Roast grilling, I have a feeling there could be some Max Cady shit going down.

StuffandNonsense said...

I love De Niro. But you'd think after being in Hollywood all this time etc that his hide would have toughened up a bit? Geez.

Friar's Club agreed = a roast. He'd better get his big boy panties on.

texas rose said...

The Friars club have two basic events- their comedy roasts and this honorary award. They are separate and distinct. He is being honored with the Friars Club Entertainment Icon award. Past honorees are Frank Sinantra, Cary Grant, Douglas Fairbanks, and apparently Tom Cruise. I'm sure they would like to give him a roast and not sure why he wouldn't want that honor also but he has accepted the Icon award. A Friars clud roast is not like the raunchy comedy central roasts.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

Morris Plains. THATS IT!! SIgh. We went often. Some people would wait out in tbe snow a table. We squeezed out way into the bar no matter what it took. $11.95 for huge tastey steak and potatoes roasted in tbe juices.
Well, if they're gone, I won't be Jonesin' for NJ.
But I will say Jersey is far more beautiful than people give credit. But then, we did have a service that plowed are driveway in tbe winters.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

I hear ya!!

PS. I've gotten to see Pacino out and about, doing Daddy duty n stuff. He comes up to my bewbs but I STILL WOULD!
I don't picture Bobby to be tooooo much taller than Al.
But who cares?

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

Hey Bobby, Not to worry, the king of roasting is no longer with us.
RIP Greg.

I think when you get to a certain age you're allowed to say no thank you!
