Blind Item #1

This B list actress who can usually be found on television has an interesting tabloid past that makes all of you know her. Sure, her prime tabloid days were about a decade ago, but when you have a character in a movie based on you, then you know you are something else. Anyway, she was talking recently about something that happened to her in the #MeToo movement, but she has one thing wrong. She once tried to get a job by casting couching and the producer said no because he knew it would lead to trouble. Probably the only time he said no.

Amanda Bynes?

Katie Holmes? Break-up was close to a decade ago and everyone thinks that Netflix show is based on their relationship.

Florin said...

Which Netflix show is that?

The Woodman said...


Are "prime" and "something else" potential clues as to who?

jessorella said...

My mistake - not a Netflix show! It's called The Arrangement.

Kevin said...

"Can be found on television" is interesting...

Anne Heche is my guess.

Totally Anne Heche. Watched Bowfinger again last week. So funny.

T. W. said...

All I can think of are Alyssa Milano and Sheri Stoner. That is a stretch though. Disney used them as inspiration to draw animated characters.

agreed with @loopymommy, it's anne heche.

I think it's Anne. She recently just spoke up about Harvey ruining her film career, also.

Anne Heche, not sure on the movie, If These Walls Could Talk II maybe?

Holy God. I Googled it and now I cannot unsee it. The Little Mermaid was one of the "Charmed" witches and Belle is carrying a rifle going "GET OWF MAH LAWN": http://stylecaster.com/real-people-that-inspired-cartoon-characters/ 🙀🙀🙀

I thought Pocahontas rather looked like Naomi Campbell, tho?

TeaMe said...

Heather Graham's character in Bowfinger was based on Anne Heche.

On another note, shit like this undermines the #metoo movement and is fucked up

Boldblonde said...

The Arrangement is clearly based on Tom C.

timebob said...

Sadly we are getting to the point that I was hoping would not happen. Opportunistic actresses using the media and movement for their own career gains.

rosie riveter said...

Wow. It says a lot about her crazy for a producer to turn her down. That poor girl is probably indeed a ton of trouble

Heather L said...

+1 J.D. It's definitely Anne she just recently talked about the #MeToo and I remember all the crazy tabloid talk about her when I was younger when she was more erratic publicly.

Anne Heche is starring in The Brave. It airs during primetime on NBC.

@timebob That was my concern too. A lot of these men and women who were actually abused have been scared to come out because people wouldn't believe them, blacklist them, or try anything to ruin their career and discredit them. It's really disgusting how people are manipulating this movement for their own publicity and career gains when there are real victims out there who are still scared to speak out. People like Anne Heche are disgusting and should be outed publicly for lying.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

No, but also the thing is: if they DON'T speak up against it, then people just assume they at some point of their careers voluntarily hit the couch (which is probably true).

I guess the women who voluntarily couched should be allowed to take part in the movement (as long as they quit is, as I think by doing so they do other women a disservice by contributing to fostering an unfair/unsafe environment for women who want to compete for jobs like men).

CJ said...

LOL who's actually crazy enough that a producer would decline the offer?

Yes the answer must be Anne H.

Amy said...

But her prime tabloid days were right before 9/11, closer to 2 decades ago. (I just remember 9/11 wiping her alien-Ellen drama off the front pages for a few months.) She's never been close to as relevant since.

Anne Heche

Scandi Sanskrit--I agree re: "I guess the women who voluntarily couched should be allowed to take part in the movement (as long as they quit is, as I think by doing so they do other women a disservice by contributing to fostering an unfair/unsafe environment for women who want to compete for jobs like men).

If we exclude them it can't be a united movement. We need to allow them to start fresh and take up the cause. Kind of sick at the idea we need to throw everyone away unless they've been 100% clean in this cesspool; we need to give them a way to make it back.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Just as long advice they don't make shit up to draw attention to themselves (or call a "bad date" a #MeToo thing, like the person who bitched about Aziz Ansari's lack of red wine).

Like, if an actress voluntarily hit the couch, then they can come to a march/gathering/protest, but don't make false claims just so they can be the centre of attention.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

You know what kind of woman would win my respect now? If someone admitted they casting couched and acknowledged they contributed to creating an unsafe work environment for others and apologised to her fellow women.
