Today's Blind Items - Blackballed

A mutual friend said we should meet. To clear the air. An actress wanted to tell her side of the stories I had been hearing about her from others. She says she is not a pain to work with and that for the past year she has purposely not asked for anything on any set from anyone, yet the stories continue. She knows why. She blames it on a producer. A producer who has been featured on this site from almost the very beginning. Our actress says that even though she was the star of the show, it was in name only. When she landed the part, the producer never mentioned anything about sleeping with her. According to her it wasn't necessary because he had a handful of actresses on other shows who were keeping him busy. All but one of them were underage. She suspected that because she was legal for almost the entire run of the show that he just was not that into her. At some point he did try and sleep with her and she turned him down. That rejection cost her a bunch of scene reductions. The next time she turned him down her personal appearance offers begin to dry up and she was even in fewer scenes. Meanwhile, the producer found someone else to sleep with who was also legal but loved to roleplay super young. She was getting the good lines and scenes. She was being offered crossover opportunities and new shows were being developed for her. The producer also started pitting the cast against our actress. If you wanted your career to succeed you took the side of the producer. If you wanted it to fail, you took her side. The producer started spreading lies about our actress. He did so regularly. When the show finally ended there was no one out there who was willing to hire her because of all the stories the producer had been spreading. So, when she did get work and asked for anything or was a few minutes late from lunch or whatever, the stories would start again and getting work even harder. The only work she really can get at this point are product endorsement deals and doing work for companies. No one wants to hire her for acting. No one wants her for pretty much anything. She says that even though her career has gone into the tank because she wouldn't sleep with the producer, she doesn't regret her decision. She points to another actress of a show he produced. That actress slept with the producer and his friends and it didn't help her career at all. She is hoping that people will start to pressure the producer to let up on the comments and that other producers will give her a chance. She just wants to work.

Kathryn Heigl? She has been working hard to say she is not difficult and I think her real only income has been from endorsements. I know she tried another show that didn't go well (maybe where she worked hard to not ask for anything?)

Dude, there exist some magical thing called "period", you should use them. Seeing this block of letters is not extremely attractive.

I agree with the other commenters in both Jeanette and the jailing of dan s.

shakey said...

Yeah, this smells like him. Why doesn't anyone do anything about him?

just sayin\' said...

she came to mind for me too as enty recently said he likes her now.

Anne said...

How sad.

seabee said...

Kathryn Heigl trashed "Gray's Anatomy" and "Knocked Up" and their producers/directors. She is black balled for her mouth as well as her diva attitudes. Can't be her.

Bend3r said...

Does Victoria Justice have a 'difficult' reputation?

Bend3r said...

Is Shonda Rhimes lesbian? Because most of her diva stories are from Grey's Anatomy and she kick her out of the show.

Hot Cola said...

She should contact that actress from another blind last month, the one who is "brilliant, one of the smartest actresses on t.v. and recorded every instanse of sexsual harassment almost from day one."
She should ask her how to do it and set a trap for the producer.
Zero mercy for him

Anon said...

Beautiful girl, horrible actress. That's why she can't get hired.

Jim Summers said...

Justice never slept with him, all of the clues fit Ariana Grande who is also known for acting like a little girl to turn men on, halfway thru the run of Victorious Grande's singing began to be showcased by Schneider at the expense of Justice.

LimoMan said...

For the other actress it didn't help: I know it is not McCurdy. She had her own shenanigans going on that did not involve Schneider, maybe he got jealous and it contributed to her getting fired from Sam & Cat. Right up until she was 18 (around Season-4 iCarly) her momma was on set watching her like a hawk and she had no freedom to do anything naughty. Then momma McCurdy got sick and had to stop coming to the show. Right then newly freed Jennette cut loose with that script writer, and others, she wasn't picky about older guys who gave her attention. But Schneider wasn't one of them, she dodged that bullet.

pk491 said...

This is pretty clearly Victoria Justice and Dan Schneider. Ariana Grande as the girl who likes to roleplay young.

Lisa said...

The "rumors" about this man have been around for years, my questions are why isn't something being done about it and why is he continued to be around teens/young ladies? And why the hell do parents allow their children to even try out and take the part for any show this animal is producing. I mean is fame and fortune worth messing up your child's life?????????

pk491 said...

He's got Madisyn Shipman and Cree Cicchino now on Game Shakers. It's a never ending cycle.

ImIm said...

It's Miranda Cosgrove probably. After Icarly, her career is almost dead. I'm curious what "slept with the producer and his friends" means. Did she was passed around at Dan Schneider's VIP parties too? Poor girl if true. Seriously, what's up with Hollywood. It's so wrong.

D Brown said...

The fact that someone was subject to sexual harassment does not preclude them from also being difficult. The fact that the actress here apparently had issues working on subsequent jobs suggests that possibility. As well as the fact that most of the actresses named here are all been subject to repeat bad behavior blinds set outside of the studio (i.e. interacting with fans). The predator producer should definitely be jailed, for a long time, but the actress might find that professional behavior (i.e. not showing up late) is more likely to get her hired for new projects.

Anon said...

I have no sympathy for VJ when she was overheard telling an up and coming 16 year old, "You're gonna have to get on your knees like the rest of us!" Why don't you spend some of your money on acting lessons, instead of fake followers and paps?

Deathsong said...

Sorry, I really do not want to come off as mean (because I do like Victoria), but this sounds like damage control. (If true) That is because;

1) The person who suppossed to roleplay very young did NOT got the best lines, scenes or anything. She was treated as the third wheel and all. The fourth season was the worst. The only time that was treated right was AFTER she got REALLY famous when her first album went 2x platinum. Nice try, though.

2) Pit against the rest of the cast? Bullshit...big time. Since when has she ever took REALLY the time to be with everyone? They are not just as close.

3) not slept with him? Huh? Was not there another blinds who did indicated that she actually did that?

4) product endorsement deals and doing work for companies? Uh? What about Eye Candy, Rocky Horror picture Show and some other movies?

5) "Our actress says that even though she was the star of the show, it was in name only."Excuse me? She has ALWAYS been the main focus of the show. Her character WAS the eptihom of a Mary Sue.

6) Vic was the one who always have had the most roles DURING and AFTER Victorious ended.

7) Victorious was GIVEN to her! nuff said.

8) This completely contradicts the most blinds here. Do not you think that ENTY (who claims to be in the know) would not have known that it comes from DAN? If you know what I mean.

Miranda's live acting career isn't so much dead as "purposely ended". She made fuck you level money with iCarly and the Despicable Me/Minions franchise.
