Blind Item #6

This almost television show is a big big hit. They already have a hypocrite in the lead role and no one really says anything. That show will come crashing down in a very big way if a certain woman comes forward on the record with her story. Apparently she was raped by the foreign born A- list actor on the show a dozen or so years ago. Many people know of her story in the industry but she has never gone on the record to the press. Her story is so well known and the rape so violent that several foreign sales agents refuse to do take part in any project involving the actor. If they don't help, it is much tougher to get financing for a movie or to sell the movie in foreign countries. Apparently the woman raped was well known to these sales agents and they all consider her a very close friend. It is one of the reasons his career has never progressed as far as other people close to him.

The Handmaid's Tale/Joseph Fiennes. Elisabeth moss as the hypocrite.

Dena said...

Wild guess...A Handmaid's Tale, Elizabeth Moss is the hypocrite, actor Joseph Fiennes (although A- seems kind of generous) his career not as good as his brother.

K said...

Joseph Fiennes/handmaid’s tale

Dena said...

High-five Melvin!

sandybrook said...

+1 to y'all

nancer said...

what was he doing 12 years ago? the woman is kept vague, but i wonder if it's someone we'd know.

Neil said...

A couple of rookie questions, if I may, from a newcomer to the site:

1. How do you guys know all this stuff? Are Tricia, sandybrook and others industry insiders? How can outsiders know about it without it being public knowledge?

2. Elisabeth Moss is the star and a producer of the show. Why on Earth would Fiennes get a role if the blind is true? He hasn't the star power to attract viewers, and there must be hundreds of other talented actors who could play the part.

Thank you!

plot said...

Dunno about your first question there.

Second, often these actors have great agents, who are attached to other actors as well. So if the show is courting the agent, so she/he will help cast his/her other actors in future on other shows, it is taking this alleged rapist as a part of a bigger deal with the agent and the agency.

Natasha21 said...

Don`t forget guys- Moss is a scientologist. They all stand behind Masterson. That can also make her the hypocrite who pretends to speak for women, while being a part of a vile cult.

IF it's Fiennes (and that seems likely) and IF we're talking about an actress on-set, the most likely film is 2005's "Man to Man" with Kristen Scott-Thomas.

Diogenes said...

Running with Scissors? Evan Rachel Wood?

sandybrook said...

I'm not a Hollywood insider Neil, just keeping up on the DM and other gossip pages. Although I did try to become a Hollywood insider once upon a time.

Rafael said...

Yeah...let´s call someone a rapist without any proof and then go watch the news. Idiots.

PV Siren said...

@Neil regarding question #1, many of these posters have been here for years, some insiders, some not. The ones who arent have learned from many past blinds over the years and the ones who are in the business add their views to solidify. I have been around for well over a decade but rarely comment as I see everything too late in the day and even though I grew up near Hollywood, I dont watch network tv much so a lot of times I have no idea who some people are.
I love this site and its’ intelligence provided by so many good detectives! Sandybrook, Tricia, etc. And the Count for breaking the ice hahaha
There are a few oldies missing, but I am pretty sure some of them are now using new names. Whatever, a good bunch for the most part.

Stormy Daniels AKA - Peggy Peterson (I'll even bring the Spanx/Spanks!) said...

I also am new here, since 'bout fall 2017 and am enamored by their research skills and information they bring forward. Most seem cautious to not just throw names out just for "air time." I've been on a few discussion boards where it becomes unpleasant/wanting to out posters at which I just leave at that point. But, so far, this is quite a cohesive group, with the few exceptions here and there of those wanting to out who "himmmm" is. Never has made any sense to me as to why. But, carry on!

PV Siren said...

While Heather is a great guess, the timing is a bit off, Kristen Scott Thomas fits better. I’m with Ddonna Tttarty on this one.
I really like both of them, very sad to imagine. These two know how to be private in a not so private industry. Unfortunately, so many good ones disappear from the spotlight due to circumstances like these that are well known to happen in the industry.

one_eyed_bob said...

Good timing on the blind, Joseph Fiennes is up for a SAG award tonight.

Annyoung Bluth said...

Would losing Joseph Fiennes really bring down the whole show? I don’t doubt this is it but I think we’re overstating his importance here.

rosie riveter said...

Idiots? hmm...๐Ÿค”
Coming from someone where that particular bar is set so fucking low is saying something ๐Ÿ˜‚

rosie riveter said...

Horrifying if true. Of course, as most of us who've been here a while know, these turn out to be accurate a good percentage of the time.
I wonder what the story is?

beebopcowboy said...

I agree w/ @PVSiren. Kirsten Scott Thomas is VERY beloved internationally as an actress. she's been in countless international co-productions and is fluent in several languages.

'this almost television show is a big big hit' = Handmaids Tale, Netflix
'hypocrite in the lead role & no one really says anything' = Elisabeth Moss, $cio
'foreign born A- list actor on the show' = Joseph Fiennes

This also is interesting thing that just popped into my head......The English Patient (1996) won Best Picture in 1997..KST was nominated...costar was Ralph Fiennes, whose brother obv is Joseph Fiennes....next year's Best Picture was Shakespeare in Love (1997) w/his bro Joseph Fiennes as Shakespeare. That time window though is 20 years ago, but it definitely could have been a prelude, so to speak.

I doubt KST would ever talk about it if she hasn't already. :(

Guesser said...

@rafael,this blind makes it clear that it was well known in the industry, much like Weinstein. Notice the quick guesses. Considering your previous comments, we take it as a compliment.๐Ÿ˜‰

pwal said...

I almost think it's Reese Witherspoon, Little Big Lies is the show and Skarsgaard as the rapist in question. Just because of the big, big clue.

Don Kieballs said...

pwal - almost television would be a Netflix/Hulu show.

Sal Salington said...

Yeah, "almost television" is Enty code for one of the big online-only studios. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon.

Which narrows the list of shows way down, and "big big hit" narrows it down to less than a handful of shows.

From there we go to "hypocrite in the lead" and we have Elizabeth Moss, who has directly been called out for hypocrisy in the last couple of weeks.

After that, it's a safe inference that if the actor playing the character known for rape on a strong feminist show was in fact guilty of rape in real life, and further more that fact had been well known ahead of time, then it would be very very bad for the show.

So that's how people arrived at the answer they did, true or not.

Don Kieballs said...

Sal - Very well summed up.
I think some are getting stuck trying to figure out who Joseph Fiennes, raped by linking to a show they were both on a dozen or so years ago. But I don't think it was necessarily an actress who worked with him.

Me said...

I wasn't aware Voldemort had a brother

Daryn Quinn said...

Dame Kristin Scott Thomas to use her full title, and yes she is very well loved over here in the UK mainly due to Four Weddings more than anything.

DDonna Tarttty said...

Though I think it's Kristin Scott Thomas, I really hope it's not. She has such class, grace and elegance, an old school movie star presence. She was my favorite actress for many years. Loved her so much in "The Horse Whisperer," which is a vastly under-rated film for grownups.

Don Kieballs said...

Who actually cast Joseph in Handmaid's Tale? There are a few connections between producers/casting agents, but I don't feel like digging deep enough to figure out who gets him the most work or what movies did better here than in foreign countries? Sales agents could be producers/distributors who wouldn't work with any project Joseph F was involved in.

Blame on the ADD, This Cardi B/Offset mess is getting messier. I kind of liked her, for what she is (not as a great rapper), but defending her cheating, 2 baby mama's while they were dating, possible ex but not officially, by saying no one educated[sic] them on what words are homophobic or derogatory[sic] is beyond ridiculous.

Mag said...

@AustinP - It's JOSEPH, not Ralph, FGS! With an accusation like this, it's best not to confuse the brothers with each other :P

T. W. said...

I think some people here have first or second hand knowledge, but some of us are old enough to remember the initial rumors these blinds are based on.

A person named VIP Blonde used to post here. She(?) would be correct nearly 100% of the time. VIP advised seeing whose photo made The Daily Mail and CDAN's Random Photos for answers. Some article outed Kaley Cuoco as a fan of blind items and people kept asking VIP Blonde is she was Kaley Cuoco.

As for me personally, a lot of these blind items are stories that have been around for ages. The blind about the woman who helped her boyfriend molest and rape her daughter is not a new story. That rumor about Charlie Sheen and Heather Locklear has been around for ages.

If you have read the book Hollywood Babylon or seen the show Hollywood Babylon or seen the show Hard Copy then a lot of these blinds are easy to guess. The National Enquirer and other American tabloids used to spill the tea back in the day. Their new owner is a friend of Donald Trump's. I remember reading articles about Whitney's drug use years before her infamous interview with Diane Sawyer. I still have a copy of an article about Mariah Carey sitting on Da Brat's lap and flirting (Da Brat is female).

Don Kieballs said...

Just for another option: Is Max Minghella A List? about a dozen or so years ago he was working on The Social Network, which I'm sure had a lot of actresses not even involved handing around after work - there were a lot of hot male starts in that film.

Mag said...

I think Enty would have mentioned "actress" if the victim was one. This can be any woman connected to the industry - an agent, a producer, an assistant, someone from a distributing company, even a director. Either that, or Enty wants to hide the victim's identity this one time for a change.

Shamrox said...

@Neil I'm a longtime lurker (since 2007 minus the format change years). The more comments you read, the more obvious it becomes who has the inside scoop.

Honestly, I don't want to know the identities of any insiders, and I get a little miffed (protective even?) when others try to out them.

I come here for the blinds, but I'd be lost without the commenters! I agree with PV Siren about some of the old-timers posting under new names.

A little shout out to some of my fav CDANers (in no order):

You all keep me stunned, laughing, and impressed!

Don Kieballs said...

Mag - another good point. the victim could be anyone, a crew member, agent's intern, family member of another actor.
Being so well known and loved by the "sales agents" makes me think she's someone who would be heavily involved with the distribution companies

Go Jags! (only because I loved them when they first started)

Overbrook71 said...

Everybody in the industry knows the story, but they keep hiring him anyway.
Most of these actors and actresses are fungible anyway - it's really bizarre why they keep hiring creeps.

Missy Bigbritches said...

@Shamrox - I'm with you!

I thought VIPBlonde was understood to be Annalynne McCord??

High Heels said...

Neil: I've been a reader and very rarely a commentator for about a decade. You'll learn to read the clues the more you read blinds. The perpetrators are often already well known on this site. I'm sure you'll get the hang of it!

Love all the info from the insiders, wish I could participate! I meet a lot of celebrities through work and was a regular in vip-rooms when I was younger, but unfortunately those celebrities would be known only in my country!

Neil said...

Thank you to all for your answers! Wish I'd known about this site sooner...I learned of it when the Weinstein news broke.

I shudder to think about how much money is spent, and where it is spent, to keep some of these things out of the public realm.

Anyway, glad to be a (small) part of the community. Thank you all again.

Boldblonde said...

He did a couple of movies in ‘05.

TwoDots said...

I adore KST, and I really hope this isn’t her, but the clues seem to fit sadly. I hope he gets his due karma.

And I see Derek Harvey is still reading ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ

Guesser said...

@Mag,I think you are right,or it could be someone we know,it is not necessarily an actress,I think maybe they will be careful not to reward him,at least.

Shamrox said...

@Missy Bigbritches

I thought VIPBlonde was understood to be Annalynne McCord??

*covering my eyes* Lalalala, I'm not reading this.

I loved reading VIPBlonde's posts. But she was simply VIPBlonde to me.

However.... it is 2018. She's ten years older. Maybe she's a BOLDBlonde now!

@BoldBlonde..... Just Kidding!!!

sandybrook said...

Missy a lot of people did think VIP was ALM, after all she was her avatar and once upon a time ALM was a bff of the OGEnty. However, she finally admitted she wasn't ALM on a day where the trolls told us how many names they posted under. Long story too complicated to tell.

T. W. said...

I don't know. I do not think it is cool to out them. Yes, some just come for the gossip. However some come to out the slime balls without jeopardizing themselves and their careers. I say let them post in anonymity.

T. W. said...

If i remember right, VIP Blonde had a lot of knowledge about old Hollywood. If she was ALM there is no way she got this knowledge first hand. Kaley Cuoco has been in the business since childhood, who knows what she has seen or heard?
For all we know VIP Blonde is a man.

sandybrook said...

No VIP is a woman.
Before Kaley got married the first time, she was a reader here, and had her picture posted in the readers pics at least twice. But Enty warned her almost everyday that the guy she was marrying was a fraud and she needed to get rid of him. Obviously Kaley didn't want to hear any of that and I think she went to other bloggers defending herself against people who were putting down her tennis playing fiance. So I'm pretty certain she's not reading here anymore and I can't say for sure if she ever posted on this board under an alias, but she wasn't VIP if she did.

Snootches said...

Yup.

Snootches said...

VIP must still be here! I refuse to believe he/she left for good several years ago. Come out come out wherever you are! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Halfmad said...

If it's Fiennes, honestly I think he is totally replaceable.

Boldblonde said...

Got it!

Sara, Making It Work said...

Wow. I haven't been here long, so I didn't know the rumor.
What is super weird is several years ago (probably after watching creepy ass Running With Scissors), I had a very vivid dream where Joseph Feinnes was trying to force himself on me. (I very rarely have that type of dream, let alone with specific people). Ralph ended up rescuing me, LOL.
Before that, I'd thought Joseph was dangerous-sexy, but ever since the dream, he's completely skeeved me out. I don't think I've watched anything with him since then.
So weird.

Jojo said...

I like BIG LITTLE LIES for the show.
Hypocrite could Reese who came forward in the METOO movement, but of course didn't name her rapist. Because most of these actresses don't want to face the fact that they sold their dignity in return of $ & fame.

It's an ALMOST SHOW, bcuz it was just a mini series which covered the book in 7 episodes. However because it was a BIG BIG HIT with a ton of awards, they will be ruining it by somehow coming up with a season 2.
Alexander Skarsgรฅrd is foreign but he's already been killed off, so not sure how big of an impact he will have on future episodes. Unless we are thinking flashbacks.
James Tupper was also foreign born (Dartmouth, Canada) the show 12 years ago in which he raped an actress could be NBCs REVENGE.
Actress that could fw is
Madeleine Stowe

Scandi Sanskrit said...

I can't wait for Enty to post another blind about a certain actor because I want to see if one of the 3 (if not all) of the 3 new suspicious commenters (who BTW changed their behaviour/tune after Enty posted those 2 blind items about the troll farms, and later even taking to "each other" to validate each other/sock-puppeting) will post vested interest-filled comments.

Unless this very comment will have them changing their mind(s). Oh well. We'll just have to wait and see...

DDonna Tarttty said...

Yes @ScandiSanskrit....as the tide of awareness turns, the trolls and shills are getting easier and easier to spot, not just here but all over the interwebz....their magician's tricks are no longer such effective slight of hand....it's easy to see the fake mutual admiration societies and sock puppet agreements....the lies have become too big and too obvious, the denials and misdirection too clumsy....hey, trolls, your pedophile masters are losing their grip...why don't you change sides? It's never too late to save your soul....until you're dead.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Tricia said she's "intuitive" once, though. Which I find fascinating!

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Whoever this is, I hope they get justice before she dies (like have everything made public).

And also, major kudos to the people who blackballed the rapist. This is 50% a kindness blind! I don't see that often here, so thumbs up to them for properly supporting her too!

Nat said...

Totally agree on the above names..I love when they comment.. it keeps this #mumthug entertained n in the know... they re so good... I'm more of a background person then comment but just had to say ty too.. xx

Nat said...

But sounds oh so juicccccy

We solved the Church's Investment

You know, the absolutely impossible story that a religious organization funded a bioweapon?

Court documents strongly indicate:

The Mormon Church worked with South Africa during the apartheid to fund an ebola-like virus to target black people

Read the most recent comments. Enty has lead us to discover a horrible truth.

Dont just brush this off as impossible. Open your mind and heart.

We need to confront societal darkness

Rachel said...

I totally agree with you 100%. I rarely comment but have followed this site forever, too.

Lisa said...

Anyway, I love that the SAG awards didn’t reward Elisabeth Moss and her hypocrisy. It was so refreshing to see her lose.

lefthandscissors said...

IDK if it's KST. She's worked A LOT with Joseph's brother (Ralph) since 2005 and I would hope she would have had a word. She doesn't strike me as the type to take that kind of shit.. but IDK. *shrug*

totaji said...

Does anyone know what happened? Is it old enough to be old Hollywood status?

Melwyn said...

Hi
I happened to notice that well known Mormon Brandon Flowers and the Killers partying in the Caribbean and playing for the likes of Branson, saint Bono of Africa, McCartney, guy o’seary etc around new year. I think Sean penn too or he was on a nearby island maybe? Strange company for teetotal Mormons? Maybe you know more.

jessorella said...

Evan Rachel Wood? They starred together in Running with Scissors (2006). She has spoken publicly of her rape by someone in the industry. She has spoken candidly of her recovery but has said she is not strong enough yet to name her attacker - whom she describes as a "very powerful, very rich, very entitled, very narcissistic white man".

Brayson87 said...

They cast a villain to play a villain, I don't think the world will be shocked.

longtimereader said...

Vip blonde is still on the 'breakaway' gossip site that was created a few years back when CDAN changed/had new owners. The killers are friends with bono,toured with U2 and are on the same label. Brandon has had drug rumours for years.

Lyla said...

I wonder if Reese is unable to name her attacker too. Perhaps he/she works in the industry

Shana said...

Don't think it's KST either, since she worked with Ralph so often and Enty didn't specify 'actress'
