Blind Item #7

This permanent A list comedian/talk show host is doing anything to stay silent through all of the sex assault/harassment stories because the host knows what they are covering up and is afraid it will be exposed on their own staff and own history which will tarnish that A list brand in a hurry.

Ellen?

Steve Harvey?

I don't see Steve Harvey as this he is nowhere near permanent A list, not in his wildest dreams.

Ellen DEFINITELY is what one would consider close to permanent A list. and she has a 'brand' more or less w/her name being so well known.

I dont watch Ellen, but I don't recall her speaking out about it and I doubt she's mentioned it on her show. Maybe her kind funny friendly good person schtick would go down the toilet if it went out. Doesn't she hookup w/female PAs or something?

John Stewart?

Do Tell said...

Is Seinfeld's Comedians In Cars getting Coffee considered a talk show?

Is Jimmy Fallon considered permanent A list by virtue of hosting the Tonight Show?

i was going to say fallon, but no brand. since its no secret he is a drunkass and cheats on his woman, it wouldnt surprise me if there have been incidents with his staff interactions. especially while drinking.

i like ellen as a guess. since gender is unspecified, i think this is a woman. but what 'brand' does ellen have?

Do Tell said...

I think it is Jon Stewart..he was called out by a reporter about Luis CK and then tapdanced around it and downplayed it..this was before everything blew up. But then there was this, this week:

*Louis CK

fallon's represents universal studios' brand with the new ride "race through new york starring jimmy fallon".

*fallon

Conan? He has been making a joke out of perving on attractive women on his show for 25 years now.

jimmy fallon's dumbed-down his humor (not going after trump like everyone else) because of the universal studios ride that features him. he had so play it politically neutral so as not to offend park guests. he's like universal studios' jiminy cricket.

with his history of drinking and hittong on every woman who crosses his path, a scandal could mean universal has to take down or drastically change the ride (=beaucoup$$$). so i can see him sweating right now.

Stewart was on Stern today and they talked about the whole ordeal. His commentary and thought process on it all seemed reasonable to me...but I'm also a sucker.

Stewart. His writing room was notorious for not hiring women.

Do Tell said...

Stewart was/is good friends with Louis CK. I can't imagine him NOT being aware of Louis' reputation and the stories that were circulating when so many in the comedy world knew and so many "civilians" with no firsthand knowledge of that world had heard those stories at least 3 years ago or more.

This ain't Ellen. She is not that dumb.

John Doe said...

Who of the A-list comedian/talk show host lineup actually is a "brand"? Of the lot, Ellen seems to fit the blind the best. Unlike all the others she was A-list Hollywood sitcom star and stand up comedian for a long time before she began doing the talk show. She also has a 'brand' and she's often on the QVC channel hawking her junk.

She appears to me to be a pretty aggressive butch. I wouldn't be surprised if its her.

sandybrook said...

I'd say Letterman, but he already got caught, but perhaps there were more than we know about and people still working on Colbert's show that did it. The only current working permanent A list talk show host\comedian might be Drew Carey. Ellen is a comedienne technically but her too.

P-Dog said...

I believe the celebrity referenced is Jon Stewart. Given his history of being very defensive about bad behaviour within comedy circles this is unsurprising. He's defended a warm-up routine that mocked the handicap and had a public tiff with Wyatt Cynac. That said (and I want to caveat this by saying Enty deserves a ton of credit for outing sexual assault in Hollywood) I've observed a tendency to lump a wide variety of behaviour together in these blinds so it's unclear to me if the takeaway is that Stewart can be an asshole (he is!), that he's ignored sexual assault within the comedy fraternity, he's covered up sexual assault or that he's sexually assaulted women himself.

BayAreaGirl said...

@John Doe, makes a lot of sense. I thought about Ellen's life style brand too. I have also noticed Jon Stewart tends to defend other his colleagues' bad behavior. Yikes, and I thought the George Takei thing was sad...

Guesser said...

This has to be Ellen. Her silence is deafening, and while the others might have something to hide, she is a brand, many endorsements etc.

Krispyc said...

Ellen has a pet goods line, home decor, even some fashion (casual shoes).

cream soda said...

Ellen spoke up in support of Portia

Cail Corishev said...

I don't have an opinion on this one, but in terms of brands: Ellen has a brand of slot machines with her face on them, believe it or not. I happened to hear that in discussions of the Las Vegas shooting. Not sure this kind of news would hurt that kind of brand, though.

Lane Crawford said...

This is Ellen. I recall old blinds about how surprised we would all be about her pimping ways behind the scenes. Rendevous in hotels with 20 somethings, cheating, crass comments etc. Her brand is huge: clothing, housewears..etc. She would stand to lose alot if accusations and old stories started bubbling up.

auntliddy said...

No. Decent human.

Glitter said...

The blind was written to keep from saying "her" or "she". I think it's Ellen.

just sayin' said...


ok, i'm converted to the ellen guess. the gender-neutral pronouns are the giveaway, and ED by ellen is not just on qvc, it's on high-end store websites, too.

the blind says that "the host knows what they are covering up and is afraid it will be exposed on their own staff and own history". this means it's not just her behavior but a culture of sexual stuff within her staff, apart from her, too.

Glue said...

My first thought is Fallon because I thought it said "night" talk show, but it didn't specify day or night and from what I hear/read, etc Ellen portrays one character on her show but is actually a completely different character in real life (character as in personality).

Guesser said...

@Lane Crawford,the slot machine thing came up because she got exclusive interviews with people connected to the Las Vegas shooting,a lot of news shows got the interviews cancelled because of the connection. Ellen is known to be not so nice, she may have a few skeletons left.

ForSure said...

Ellen Degeneres sells eyeglass frames now too, Costco carries them. I'm on board with her instead of Fallon.

Belinha Mcdermid said...

Jon Stewart. A good friend used to work with Olivia Munn when she was just an intern, she slept with Stewart during her time in the Daily Show and she isn't an unique situation.

Sue T. said...

It's not Jon Stewart if, as was mentioned above, he went on the Howard Stern show to talk about this! The blind says the host "is doing anything to stay silent." Going on an incredibly popular show is not staying silent.

Itttt said...

It doesn’t have to be THEIR brand but rather an A list brand that they are associated with/took over.

So it could be Jimmy Fallon (presuming he’s permanent A list, which I don’t see him as) with the A list brand being The Tonight Show (Universal Studios tram ride not so much)...but based on his status I say hell no.

Ellen is a better fit given the recent double standard lechery she displayed ogling Katy Perry’s body, she is permanent A list and the brand is herself - Ellen/the Ellen Show. Other A brand could also be Finding Nemo/Finding Dory/Pixar.

Jon Stewart also works with the brand being the Daily Show.

murphy nelson said...

No way is Fallon PERMANENT A list though.

The tiptoeing around gender gives it away...if it was a man, they could have used "he" and there would be a good dozen men that would have fit the blind, but only one woman, hence the lack of gender pronouns.

sjgmoney said...

Do some homework on Ellen and this blind is very easy. Could always ask Anne Heche how she was treated, that makes a good read.

AngryLiberalKTS. said...

I always have trouble with permanent A list. My standards must be too high I guess. Permanent A list comedians/hosts in my world are dead lol. If any of those host's retired tomorrow I don't think they stay A list or relevant. Now Carson?, Letterman, Larry King?. Yep permanent A list.

AngryLiberalKTS. said...

We know Carson will stay silent thru this, maybe an older show or a show Host still making money off of show.

AngryLiberalKTS. said...

Sounds like Tonight Show or SNL

AKA said...

I think maybe it is Letterman and would tarnish the Late Show brand?

Alicia D. said...

Those questions are discussed before hand.. Jon knew that question was coming.
He's getting alot of flack for his answer but if you heard a rumor about your friend and they said it was a lie, wouldn't you believe them? In every situation, Louie was alone w. these women. He obvi went to lengths to keep it hidden.

Maude Labowski said...

Watch it be BOTH Ellen and JStew...
Which would be super-depressing, but with the year we are having nothing suprises me anymore...

KZmi34 said...

Conan O'Brien? He has a brand.

Raspy said...

Who didn't Olivie Munn sleep with

Guesser said...

@Raspy,Aaron Rogers?

luckythewondercat said...

Ellen has a brand. I see her face all over Petsmart for pet food or some kind of pet products.

Kiki Jones said...

Definitely Fallon.

Freestar said...

Agree. It was conspicuous as fuck.
