Blind Items Revealed #25

February 23, 2017

Back in the day this actress was A+ list. She accomplished all of this while being in her teens. Yes, it was that period of time where the biggest movie stars in the world all seemed to be in their teens or early 20’s. All of you know her. Every single last one of you. For years and years there is no way she would have let herself do television. She was far too good for that. Then, when you run out of money and your fame only gets you so many gigs, you start to change your mind. Always brutal to work with, she actually was sort of humble in that long running cable show where she starred for a number of seasons. After the success of that show though, she became difficult again and very demanding. If she was not going to be in the main cast, she wanted a lot of money to be a guest or a recurring. Her demands could be quite extensive too. So, along came this show. An almost network show that really wanted her to be part of the main cast or so they said. She heard from people behind the scenes that they wanted her name and a few others to try and get some people to watch but more importantly try and get it to season 2 and season 3. Meanwhile, her old cable network was calling with a new show where she actually would be the lead. How to get out of the almost network show where they were lying about her status until she signed and get on the show she really wanted? Our actress started listing out a whole slew of demands for the almost network show. Page after page. Revision after revision. She also wanted to be listed fairly high in the credits and wanted the fact she was going to be in it advertised. Here was her reasoning. What if her new show bombed? She wanted to be able to come back to the almost network show and them be backed into a corner and not able to swap her out with some other actress. It is quite the genius move.

She's a recurring character on Riverdale
She doesn't have that kind of pull
I dunno what her other show was

Salaam said...

The other show is Raising Expectations, which is quite good.

NASTY NAILED IT

Riverdale sucks, it's just Dawson's Creek with the Archies.

Mark said...

The idea that Riverdale was playing her is interesting; they seem to have done alright by the rest of their former teen idols. By the time she showed up they played it as stunt casting.

Dee said...

I really don't get why she was so sought after beyond the eighties. I get the It Girl thing but she's a fucking terrible actress. All she does is stunned mullet face. Constantly.

I'm a child of the 80's, still love her.

Seriously, it's not even THAT good. The comics are *way* better.

When you wrote "there's no way she would do television," I knew immediately who it would be.
