Blind Item #9

This long time actress who used to be A+ list in television, and starred in some great movies too is suffering from Alzheimers and a planned tribute for her had to be canceled because she is just not well enough to attend.

Mary Tyler Moore?

Hope not

Princess Nobody said...

Candice Bergen

Simon said...

Dick van dyke said she is not well at all....

sandybrook said...

I'm agreeing with Princess Nobody because you never see Candice at all in public or hear from her.

Tricia S said...

Sadly she has diabetes and has been sick a looong time..but don't think it's her

sandybrook said...

Mary T has dibilitating illnesses but she has been seen in public occasionally.

Anne Meara...Ben's mom

Zach said...

So sad about Mary.

sandybrook said...

Yes Carol is still alive.

Jennifer said...

Simon, I think the NE actually gets legitimate tips and then they get "test tips" (like when celebrities tell people something to see if it makes it into the tabloids).

One source could be reliable and giving accurate info and then a celebrity gives them a test tip that turns out to be false and that's all that people remember are the times NE got it wrong.

Simon said...

@jennifer, good to know! I remember they got the John Edwards affair correctly when other media wouldn't touch it

Jennifer said...

I know this is suppose to be serious but I had to laugh at Jennifer Aniston! Maybe that's why she has such horrible taste in guys, she can remember how awfully douchetastic the last dude was and gets a new version of him.
Vince Vaughan - plays a good d-bag, probably because he gets practice in real life
John Mayer - DoucheMaster extraordinaire!
Justin Theroux - Hipster douche (that's the only way to explain his bromance with Uncle Terry)

Cybil Shepard?

figgy said...

Mary Tyler Moore sprang to mind immediately. So sad. :-(

Tina Mallette said...

But was Mary Tyler Moore even in any great movies? Or was that when she was very young?

Jennifer said...

Simon, they got the John Edwards affair; they were going to break Bristol Palin's pregnancy so the campaign confirmed it before NE could; Tiger and his many mistresses; etc...they've actually gotten a lot of scoops but they also get a lot wrong. That's why I think they get test tips.

Candice Bergen is set to do a Broadway play with Carol Burnett and a few others.

Simon said...

MTM was in a movie with Elvis, ordinary people which is an oscar winner, thoroughly modern Millie, etc

cebii said...

MTM was in some great movies way back when - Ordinary People and Just Between Friends come to mind. I guess that ages me.

Tricia S said...

She was amazing in Flirting with Disaester....amazing(she andGeorge Segal)

msgirl said...

Yes MTM has done terrific work in terrific movies. Whoever this is, so so sad.

Jessi said...

What is Angela Lansbury up to? She's been in some big movies! Mary Poppins, Bedknobs and Broomsticks. Whomever it is, sad.

Topper Madison said...

Carol Burnett is very much alive and kicking and accepting awards all over the country.

Cheryl said...

Candice Bergen had a stroke a few years ago but says that she has recovered. I think this blind is MTM though.

Princess Nobody said...

I think @MontanaMarriott got it with Angie Dickinson. Her sister had Alzheimer's too.

Sherry said...

I sadly agree that it's MTM as well.

MinPinGirl said...

Angela Lansbury

auntliddy said...

I think its MTM too. Police frequently called to her house because shes so unreasonable and argues with her husband. She also falls alot, which is a sign things are not well. Shes pretty used up, poor thing.

Sara said...

MTM was nominated for an Oscar for Ordinary People (which won best picture that year -1981?) !

Zoe Cialite said...

Kris Jenner. Because no mom in her right mind would be doing what she's doing to her kids.

mw843 said...

Angela Lansbury is doing "Blithe Spirit" on stage in London.

sugarbread maker said...

All that weed and tequila will kill the memory. How many times did she take Mayer back?? See she forgets.

sugarbread maker said...

Blithe Danners secret? ?

Malibu Borebee said...

Thank you, @mw, Angela Lansbury is doing very well.

It has to be someone beloved enough to warrant a tribute. MTM.

saltygirl said...

I like this guess. And the whole Dan Quail/Murphy Brown hubbub has been coming up again. Maybe some sort of (any) candidate event.

Angie Dickinson

Dame Judy Dench? She got her start in TV before movies
