Today's Blind Items - They Walk Right In

Back in the day, this person was a big celebrity.  A foreign born singer. They even almost made the top 20 with several songs. Have you heard of them? Probably not just off the top of your head, but you have probably heard her story. She was raped and molested beginning from a very young age. Her parents enabled it and she was offered up to various much much older celebrities long before she was even in her mid teens. There was the one time she had sex with an entire A+ list band one night because the band paid her parents some money. She says it was only about $250, but her parents said it was enough.

This kind of thing is bound to make anyone messed up and she is no exception. The thing is though, she now drags teens the same age she was into the same kind of situation. She actually works with young teens. Specifically she works with young female teens from very strict religious families. Very strict religious families. They send their daughters to our former celebrity when the daughters have issues at home or school or look like they could be headed down a path of wickedness. I have always wanted to use that word in a sentence. This I think is the first time. Anyway, this former celebrity who was A list in her own country and a couple of others at one point spends time interviewing the young teens. They all come to her. They all have issues and our former celebrity identifies which ones would be willing to have sex with older men. Most of the older men are elders of various churches that participate in this program. Some are pastors of the various churches. We are not talking about huge numbers here. Maybe a dozen or so teens a year that are forced to go through "extra counseling," and the parents are so blinded by their trust and faith in these religious leaders that they bring their young daughters to the home or office where their daughters are going to get molested or raped. When there are pregnancies, they are aborted and the parents never told. It is just one messed up cycle of abuse.

That is disgusting. And she does this for a church?

Boldblonde said...

It states that the men are from various churches.

DonnaMarie said...

Joss Stone?

cheesegrater15 said...

Religion is the fucking worst.

filmfanb said...

For some reason Kylie was the first thing to come into my head.

DonnaMarie said...

She has several charities set-up like the ones described

nancer said...

he says we've probably heard her story? nope, i haven't.

sandybrook said...

Just because of her name--Shirley Manson foreign born singer in Garbage?

filmfanb said...

@Sandybrook I really like that answer. Foreign born. She fronted Garbage and given the blind mentions "them" Its obvious the women involved has been in a group. They were relatively worldwide but much more in the uk. She had a rough childhood from what Ive read before although never remember rape etc....She works a lot with charities too. Only other one I can think of is Annie Lennox

longtimereader said...

Joss'f***ing for tracks' stone sounds like a good guess. Stage parents and reality tv star. Didn't she have a stalker problem as well?

DonnaMarie said...

yep and Joss charged her 25yr old boyfriend of statutory rape when she was a teenager.

sandybrook said...

Thanks filmfan it's really just a complete shot in the dark.

GoogleSleuth said...

Just to be different, are there any foreign-born country stars out there that fit this blind? I don’t know much about country music, but if there’s any genre that would be associated with a religious fan base, it’s country.

Sign Name Below said...

The Blind specifically says that we have probably heard her story, which means it is out in the public. The guesses so far are not backed up by sources. A quick search on the internet, people.

filmfanb said...

Joss could work. Was in a band with Jagger called Superheavy....A+ could be Rolling Stones . Something about the wording "back in the day" though makes me thing of someone older.

prabath gunasekara said...

Sign Name Below said...

My gut says someone older, in the vein of Marianne Faithful

Sign Name Below said...

But it is not her

Brayson87 said...

Ugh. Foreign born, offered up to multiple celebrities from a young age. Sold to a band for $250.
So unless in London, family was probably a transplant to LA or New York. Way back in the day for $250 to even be an option unless her parents offered discounted rates to musicians.

sandybrook said...

Shithead get yourself and your fucking spam link off this board understand?


I'm changing my opinion from Shirley Manson to Siouxsie Sue, reading her Wikipedia she was molested when she was nine and seemed to have a very hard life as a youngster

filmfanb said...

Just had a look I think its Siouxsie Sue. Big enough in their day. Especially England. She was a big name too. She was abused. Just not sure what she has been up to these days. A+ band , still sticking to the stones.

EDIT:Sandybrook I love and hate you :P :P :P

plot said...

Off topic -

Anyone know how to report this prabath entity spamming the boards now?

Allegedly, I have him blocked. Not so, apparently, since he keeps showing up.

Ivy Moya said...

I'm going to look for a kitten chaser on the internet after reading this post. While I appreciate Enty exposing the heinous acts of these types of people, all I want to do is sharpen the ends of the nearest pitchfork, light a torch and find out where they live since apparently law enforcement can't or won't do its job.

sandybrook said...

Bwahaha filmfanb...

ZantiMissKnit said...

I get the impression that this person already had a singing career as a young teenager.

Chase said...

Siouxsie Sue sure fits this description but the A list band would most likely be The Sex Pistols , not the Stones. SS was a Pistols groupie BITD.

Krab said...

Doesn't have to be English. From the Caribbean? In the Caribbean, $250 goes a lot further than in the UK.

Newbomb said...

When he says Top 20 which charts is he referring too? Siouxsie had top 10 UK hits but only 1 song close to top 20 in the US charts.

BelaMac said...

Gloria Trevi just to be different. Mexican singer who now lives in Texas. Was once arrested for corrupting minors.

Siouxsie Sioux, not 'Sue'.

But I don't think it's her because of the religion aspect to the story.

Krab said...

It's not Siouxsie Sioux. I'm a fan of hers and I've never heard that she was sold by her parents, etc.

Rafael said...

The so called religious people are EVIL and NUTS. Run away from all them.

sandybrook said...

Fuck spelchek I just saw that, I had Sioux 😣

Charles Fromage said...

Blind says "They Walk Right In".

"Walk Right In" was an international hit (a cover they did), by the Rooftop Singers.

The group's original female vocalist died in 1982, but her replacement was a Mindy Stuart.

I can't find anything about her. She'd be old now, but could still be alive.

A LOT of other groups (at least a dozen) have covered the song more recently. Maybe the female vocalist in of those?

Krab said...

Also considering Shirley Manson just called out stupid Morrissey for defending Kevin Spacey and Weinberg, I severely doubt this is her.

Sal Salington said...

Walk Right In has been used here and there for church related outreach, which sort of makes sense. I don't see anything with a celeb involved though.

Makeupbylizz said...

I hope not Siouxsie Sioux! She spends most of her time now talking about her cats. And Cities in Dust is about Pompei...so a volcano, not pedos.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Shirley Manson's career is still very much active, and this blind sounds more like someone who is no longer in the business.

We have heard her story, but might not know her. That to me says she was maybe immortalized (in song or otherwise) by someone else. Maybe with the name changed.
OR it was a woman who performed under a stage name And now lives more anonymously. Maybe her singing career was a side gig and she is known for other things.
Like was suggested, perhaps a Marianne Faithfull type muse.

jessorella said...

Helen Shapiro was huge in the 60s. Her first hit was at age 14, called Don’t Treat Me Like a Child (hmmm) and she was suppprted on tour by the Veatles of all people (A listers without question). She fizzled out of popularity with a few years and did some other stuff. Her Wiki entry links to her website which is full-on religious outreach. One of her B sides is called “I Walked Right In”. I can’t find any info relating to abuse, though.

jessorella said...

Beatles, obviously (damn my phone).

Drumstixx said...

After reading this I immediately thought Samantha Fox. I remember reading her mom sent photos of her in lingerie to a paper when she was 16, in which she soon posed topless for the publication. Did I mention she was 16! She is also a born again Christian. I can't find anything about her being molested though so I might be off track.

Sara, Making It Work said...

I think this is Mandy Smith. In a relationship with Bill Wyman at 13, and later married him, was a pop singer, now heavily involved with the Catholic church.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandy_Smith
Although Helen Shapiro sounds good too, I'll look into that.

AngryLiberalKTS. said...

I hate organized religion, and the people who fall for it.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Samantha Fox had top 10 hits, so not her, although she definitely fits for the "gross stage mom" category.

T. W. said...

Walk Right In was released in 1930 and has been covered by multiple artists. None of the artists struck me.

https://secondhandsongs.com/work/31938/versions

I have a feeling this is one of those blinds we should have been able to guess in hindsight.

Carolyn said...

Helen Shapiro is a really great guess. The only hitch is that I didn't see any stories of childhood abuse, although she was certainly thrust into stardom at a very young age, and we all know how that goes.

But she's certainly very religious now; she became a Jew for Jesus and is very active in that world, apparently.

MsIzz said...

Pretty sure it's Mandy Smith. Definitely don't think it's Shirley Manson since she's an atheist with no current ties to any church.

SDaly said...

Probably not Helen Reddy.

ZantiMissKnit said...

I don't think this is Mandy Smith, based on this: "They even almost made the top 20 with several songs."

Clarisse McClellan said...

Joss Stone.

Guessed it just a few lines into the blind. Big CELEBRITY (reality tv), then adds she was a singer. You haven't heard of any of her songs, but know her story.

Joss is currently traveling with other young women now, and doing some kind of charity work.

Definitely NOT Shirley Manson. She is still solid A and actively working and huge supporter of women's rights.

Velobwoy said...

She was a contemporary of the Pistols, not a young teen

joshg g said...

Doesn't the singer have to be part of a band, enty says them several times?

Krab said...

I don't know Joss Stone's story. I've heard of her of course but she doesn't seem to have been molested. I still think we haven't gotten this.

MeliticusBee said...

Old article from daily mail seems to confirm Mandy Smith.
Talks about mentoring catholic girls.
www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1265407/Former-wildchild-Mandy-Smith-finds-religion-swaps-clubbing-communion.html
She fits because being a singer wasn’t her path to fame, group “almost” had some top 20s...in various countries. She was famous for being teen lover of Wyman and it was BIG news.

Seems like this is a country act.

Temi said...

Its mandy smith;

Unknown said...

Catholic Mandy would account for the low numbers of girls. She'd get more business if she specialized in boys, the hideous hag (whoever she is, of course.)

pillsberry said...

I don't think it's Joss Stone either. Too young, her music is known somewhat and she has had some success. However, I haven't seen anything supporting Mandy Smith or Helen Shapiro being abused to the degree of this blind. Perhaps I just haven't found it yet.

Picklet said...

Actually, it was her father who sent in the pictures. #throwsup

delete account said...

How about Gloria Trevi? There was a big scandal about her and her manager abusing girls about a decade ago.

Krab said...

I hate to say it, but the Gloria Trevi thing was more like 20 years ago. Given that she actually went to jail over it, would religious people send her their daughters? Sounds crazy.

Angela said...

My guess is Brazilian singer/TV host Xuxa.

AppleThief4Elliot said...

Like the Stone guess. In no world is this plausibly Annie Lennox.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Good. Because I like Garbage and who the fuck would defend Kevin Spacey.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Do non-American country singers even exist?

Mag said...

@fuilmfanb - Do you actually know anything about Annie Lennox, or do you just guess the first foreign born singer who comes to your mind and is involved with a charity???

Throwing a few things out there:
1) Sixties Brit singer Sandie Shaw now runs a "show business psychiatric practice."
2) Petula Clarke got into the business VERY YOUNG, and her father had wanted to be an actor. Read: Probably pushy parents.
3) I don't think Marianne Faithful is off the table. Although I can't find anything about sexual abuse, she did have that incident with the drug bust and Mick Jagger.

Lovein It! 😂😂

Pot/Meet kettle
🖕

rosie riveter said...

Omg NOPE! not Helen Reddy, it can't be because I love her. She's more of a soul-progression believer not organized religion.

Picklet said...

Clarification please: is the first paragraph stating that the abused girl was later the lead singer of a band that nearly had top 20 hits?

Nikko Pikko said...

I highly doubt it's Siouxsie or Shirley as they are both the kind of women who would nut punch dudes for taking advantage of girls. I have heard rumors that Shirley did some escort work back in the day. Shirleys dad is also a scientist or something that worked on the cloned sheep DOlly. Siouxsies dad either left her family or died while she was young.

I want to DP Siouxsie

Jojo said...

Karina yapor was raped by the "Andrade clan" which was a very music group which included Gloria Trevi who was accused of sex trafficking and later found not guilty by a Brazilian court. Trevi now is very catholic posting about church on twitter and her husband is a Scientologist, so connections to different churches fits.

mistang said...

Don't talk about my Shirley! lol
I agree that she would probably kick some guy's ass if she thought they were inappropriate with a girl.

LizOz said...

Oh this would make me so sad!

Freestar said...

Yes, so far I'd say Sam Fox is thr best guess. Whose sstor do wewall knok who had almost top 20 hits?

lucy said...

lol @scandi!

jessorella said...

Yeah, I can't find anything anywhere about rumours/scandal/abuse relating to Helen Shapiro. Some of the clues do seem to fit her but not the abuse, and that's clearly a big one.

PG Tips said...

Re: Mandy Smith. At first I thought no. The blind mentioned her parents, however her mum was a single parent and she was never an A list singer, but the blind doesn;t say that, only that she had a few singles, which she did. Mandy's mum did not seem to parent her that well as she was out drinking and dancing as a teen, she also sanctioned Mandy's relationship with Bill and she herself ended up dating Bill's son. I never knew that Mandy went with other celebrities, also - but that may have been excluded from her story. Mandy had a couple of chart singles after she became known for her relationship with Bill. It also fits with the church work she does. But then, the Joss guess sounds likely, also. And "Walk Right In" points to Shapiro. So, I am stumped.

roxy said...

Non-American country singers: Keith Urban and Shania Twain come to mind.
