Blind Item #5

Usually when you hear a singer give some kind of crazy health excuse for not going on tour or performing a show it means rehab. Hey, I will be the first to admit this B+ list singer who is way more popular than she probably should be thanks to a family member likes her booze almost as much as me. A lot of the increase in her booze though has been the disastrous marriage she entered into not all that long ago. She probably knows if she goes, he will cheat. You can't really say that publicly, so you give a health excuse.

I Didn't know Solange was a big drinker. HI Big Kim!

mr. sserc said...

CNN just posted this "Solange reveals illness and cancels New Year's Eve show https://t.co/juvy0p0XrH"

Guesser said...

Solange maybe should be more famous. We already know she may have mental issues, I thought she was on drugs.

Normal: Ooooh eeeee! Sure do loves my Southern Booze, too! This brings to mind one of my stories. (Make her stop, lord, make her stop!)

Growin' up in the deep South, daddy owned a liquor distributorship. We were especially popular during WW2 when dad and his Army buddies came home. House was full of booze and the Andrews Sisters. That said, when I was in my teens I was curious about wine. Dad brought home a bottle of Mother Goldstein for me to try. It was ambrosia! Fast forward to the late 60s. I was having dinner with a Cultural Attache from a foreign country at a five star bistro in London. He ordered wine. I took one sip of it and gagged. I had never had real wine before. Mother Goldstein was super sweet Passover wine. He went on and on about how fab it was and all I could think was, "This poor, delusional man! This stuff is rot gut awful and he's pretending to like it." It took me many more glasses of plonk to understand that what I had been drinking back home was not wine, wine. I can see that night as clearly now as the night it happened. So glad my memory is relatively sharp at my age.

Anyone have a story about what their reaction was to the first glass of wine?

Kate said...

Ahhh Big Kim I already like you ... a booze blind brings you from the shadows!

just sayin' said...

Love your stories, Boo Hearne. I don't like "good" wine either.

Sd Auntie said...

Loved the wine in France and Spain..but California wine just gave me a big old headache...champagne is ok. I have been told it is the Sulfates. You have had the most interesting life Me. Boo!! I'm very envious.

Sd Auntie said...

MS.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

When I was in grad school, I horrified a French guy when I told him I put Sprite in my wine. He was horrified!

Plain wine is honestly the worst. I only truly like it when it's mulled at the ski resorts. And i pretend to like it when I need it to get giggly and escape reality. Who cares what a cultural attaché says anyway, Boo? They're all spies anyway. 🍷

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Eh. Vicks F44 probably tastes better than what some cultural attaché perceives to Ben "good" wine anyway.

just sayin' said...

Scandi - yes! and I love your stories, too, btw.

Don Kieballs said...

I drink Barefoot Moscato. It's about $7/bottle and fits my non-refined palate very nicely.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Rangk you! 💛 *Eats Scooby snack*

Scandi Sanskrit said...

You mean your "honest" palate. 🥂✨

Boo Hearne said...

Scandi: You are right on the money when you say they're all spies!!! He wasn't a 'spy' spy, but involved enough in something-or-other to get me in hot water down the line. Nothing serious. Just some questions from the Home Office! Didn't understand my relationship since it wasn't sexual. I told them the truth: I am poor as dirt and he takes me to dinner and the movies. We were both equally embarrassed. Don't regret it at all.

Big Kim said...

@Scandi cheers! 🍷
@Kate Hahah aww yiiis!

Big Kim said...

@tricia13 Hello! You’re my idol 🧡

Big Kim said...

Hiiiiii 🧡

Big Kim said...

Hi you sassy you 👋🧡

Big Kim said...

Howdy! Nice to be here 🧡

LizOz said...

I was thinking aslee... Jessica fits as the booze lover and I think we’ve heard more about her marriage being a disaster. I am also wholly partial to solange so I’d prefer this not to be her

LizOz said...

Hilarious Boo!! I am a total wine geek - and moscato and framboise got me here! An older friend introduced me, and considering my college booze diet of rum and coke and natty light, the rest was history..

PhyllisWhitweed said...

Maybe I'm wrong, and I know I'm biased, but it seems like no one will believe anyone has a health crisis unless it's cancer. I started to get sick years ago and it ended up disabling me (fibromyalgia and daily migraine plus other neuropathy and joints falling apart) and since I was a high-paid exec everyone said I was burnt out, had an eating disorder or needed rehab...none of which were true. It would seem that at least some of these stars are telling the truth,because no way does being famous save you from the statistics. Am I just projecting?

Froggy04 said...

Sometimes there's too much opinion in these blinds. If it is Solange, she has leagues of fan that love her and her innovations and couldn't care less about Beyoncé. She just toured with Earl Sweatshirt, Flying Lotus, and the Sun Ra Orchestra. If you've never heard of them I rest my case.

Pterodactyl said...

I love me some Boo stories!

BayAreaGirl said...

I miss wine. @Sd Auntie, California wines are actually low in sulfates because most wineries are moving toward organic protocols which produce less sulfate. What's giving you the headaches are the ridiculously high alcohol content that is in California wines--usually in the 18% range. European wines are around 13%. My husband used to mask his drinking problem by drinking tons of Napa or Sonoma wine because it was more socially acceptable than downing hard alcohol.

Gordon Scott said...

Hey, it's IKEA's Glogg for me. Because a drop of wine or anything alcoholic gives me a migraine.

LC said...

So she won't tour to go to rehab or to stay home so her husband won't cheat? Because technically if she goes to rehab, he will cheat.

just sayin' said...

I believe you, PhyllisWhitweed. Do you remember when Cher first talked about having Epstein-Barr? She went for months with zero energy then would be better for awhile, on and off. I think it started in the 70's and affected her ability to perform. People thought she was a malingerer. I have EB and the same set of symptoms as you. Fortunately it's starting to be taken seriously.

Tricia13 said...

You are kind ! But need to get out more 😂
Thank you 🙏🏻

Crazycatlady said...

More popular than she should be? I disagree Enty.. but maybe you didn’t listen to her new album.

just sayin' said...

Agreed 💛.

LizOz said...

Love me some solange! Losing you is one of my favorite recent videos

Tricia13 said...

Hey BayAreaGirl🤙I’ve wanted to reach out and say hello 👋🏻, and what a perfect moment: live your commentary and wine expertise... as it turns out. Anything under 14.5/14 I won’t drink really ;unless Rose). Higher the alcoholic content, lower the tannens etc and you are right - easy to mask under social acceptance/culture etc...
Hope your hubby ok🙏🏻Wine is good but people’s and relationships are far greater ❤️

I was wondering when you'd cover Bounce's sister Sponge.

News said...

it is shakira

lucy said...

I used to get to have sips of Riunite on Christmas as kid. I really really liked it lol. I do not drink wine as adult . riunite = gateway to whiskey

just sayin' said...

Thanks Lucy, I'll be singing "Ri-u-ni-te, on the rocks!" all day in my brain now.

Dannette said...

Sponge said she has "an autonomic disease." Autoimmune is so 2017.

monteverde said...

Bunch of peasants and philistines on this board....just kidding.

I love a glass of good wine wit the appropriate food pairing. A cheese board with a lovely Bordeaux and some crusty bread, a Merlot with a rare steak, a beautiful Barolo with a, Sancerre with seafood, Italian antipasto board....drool. Love love love.
