Blind Item #6

As key as she is to the success of this very hit cable show, this multiple Emmy nominee/winner has been threatened with replacement on the show because her drinking is out of control and she has blacked out from drinking on set several times. She is a very rare visitor to the blinds and never about her drinking.

Sarah Paulson : AHS

Dena said...

Clare Danes

derek harvey said...

Diane Kruger is ALWAYS in these blinds and never drinks. JLD is the star of the show so she is beyond "key". Segal could work.

msgirl said...

Not Diane, this is her first TV show.

Jennifer said...

@Tricia, Katie's husband is the showrunner/creator of SOA. He might find himself in the dog house.

DoctahRivenIsAHasBeen said...

Nvm no Emmy nominations

derek harvey said...

oooh I like the Sarah Paulson guess I saw he on Chelsea Lately and she was bragging about being a drunk I think. OT but anyone watch Chelsea Lately last night with Ethan Hawke? He looked WIRED on some serious drug.

NomNom83 said...

Edie Falco (but please not her, she's discussed her sobriety and struggle openly)

Jennifer said...

@VIP No, not Sarah!!!! I love her too much and want her and Pedro to have a beautiful baby!

Jennifer said...

Jessica Lange!

rajahcat said...

cable/premium cable?

Kirke is not key-not even sure Paulson is

imma go with Danes

rajahcat said...

well now Lange is key

v good guess there Jennifer

bellaluna said...

Oh, please don't be Lange! That show would suck without her!

If this season her last, prob wouldn't be threatening to replace her

Sherry said...

Wow Sad to hear either Jessica or Sarah if it's either. Get it together girl!

Jessi said...

@Simon, but maybe she had a contract for this season and they decided to not sign her for the new seasons bc of these issues. And...because she is Jessica Freakin Lange, they allowed her to bow out gracefully and not say that she was in fact fired.

sugarbread maker said...

soa is cancelled fwiw
sarah paulson i like

rajahcat said...

was SOA cancelled? I thought it was just coming to an end

and hard to image in AHS without Lange

Maisie said...

@VIPBlonde Yah, I could see it being Sarah. She was drunk on Studio 60 once.

Nancy said...

@VIPBlonde: I agree. I think this is Sarah
Modern Family is network, so it's not Julie Bowen
Katey Segal, I don't think so. Her husband has been public with his own recovery and I just don't think she would. SOA is sadly ignored by the Emmys.

Lurker Girl said...

SOA NOT cancelled..the story is done just how it was all planned to end 7 seasons was it from the beginning

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

I'm all over the Sarah Paulson guess.

Zach said...

Anna Chlumsky?
Not having the Paulson guess!

Mark said...

Will they replace her with Ted McGinley or Ashton Kutcher?

mooshki said...

Why wouldn't they just go ahead and replace Sarah on AHS? They change the cast every season, so I wouldn't say that she's "key to its success."

New Life and Attitude said...

Here to chime in with who it is not. It is not Katie S! First her husband is Kurt Sutter who writes and directs SOA so I highly doubt he replace her. And secondly this is the last season of SOA (I'm sooo sad) but it's not cancelled it's just how Kurt wrote it. Going out on top (at least with fans). It starts airing again next month so the filming is just about over. :(

No idea who this could be though.

Basil said...

Paulson is hardly key to the success of AHS. But Lange certainly is, but she has said she is leaving after this season and is going to retire altogether. I have seen a few interviews with Lange, and she usually seems hammered, but maybe she just is uncomfortable in interviews IDK. I think this is meant to be her.

Paulson admits to drinking on the job:

Tricia S said...

Coming back late in game here..but Paulson doesn't really fit for a show with a rotating cast, and she's been in these blinds with her bisexual life (ex to chrry jones)

I'm putting Joan Cusak/shameless/multiple Emmy noms...and pretty sue has NEVER been in this space before

Tricia S said...

I know it's premium cable..but not sure they on top of all that in entyville...

Tricia S said...

Plus..think there was a reveal RE: Sarah Paulson and...another actress on way to Emmys..they' were hammered during red carpet interview..remember thinking they were lovers though they kept saying she a bestie...anyhew...reveal stated it was her who got smashed on way to awards show..I think..so she has been here for her drinking.

rajahcat said...

and I feel like I need to speak on Katey S.

she is amazingly talented and the best thing about SOA hands down (with the hotness of Charlie H. being in the second slot)

Her character Gemma is such a layered character-and she just kills it

I hate that she has never gotten Emmy credit-hate it

Tricia S said...

@Raja..I assumed she did which is why I guessed her...definitely deserved

Tricia S said...

But too her credit she's been sober a looong time so I'm happy this isn't her and no slipping..She's a cool lady

Frosty said...

Jessica Lange

Tricia S said...

Lange won 2 Oscars...worth mentioning..as it would be.cited

Tricia S said...

In addition to her Emmys..she is multi award winning, not just multiple Emmy award-winning

Lola Heatherton said...

This is Jessica's last season with AHS. Don't the actors on the show have contracts for one year at a time. sometimes they're on one season,sometimes not. I hope it's not Sarah. I love her and she was robbed the Emmys for her season as Lana.

Omar Little said...

I'm glad she killed Tara. She was terrible.

Nothanksdarlin said...

Damn Omar, spoiler alert for those of us still catching up on Netflix.

BeckyMae said...

Jessica Lange was ALWAYS finishing up in this season of AHS, she announced it after she finished S2..

Claire Danes

Mary McDonnell from Major Crimes

DoctahRivenIsAHasBeen said...

Ok this is not a perfect guess. She has Oscar and Golden Globe nominations as well. Also while her character is key to the show (but realistically replaceable), I can't really say she's key to the show's success. Lastly, I don't know if here were any BIs on her during BSG. I'll stick with it but I'm not exactly expecting it to be her.
