Blind Item #12

I give this new show a season at most with the cast as it is currently set. The A-/B+ list actress who ALL of you know doesn't know what she is getting into with this B+ list actress recently seen on a now defunct pay cable show. It is going to be a lot of drama. The A- list actress does not need drama. She does not need or want to be close to controversy. It is just not a good fit at all.

Yara Shahidi on Grown-ish with Francia Raisa?

nancer said...

well if it's someone ALL of us know it sure as hell can't be yara shahidi or francia raisa. LOL.

Gossipjunkie said...

You took the words right out my mouth nancer

bitchboy9000 said...

Only millennials I guess. Tara Shahidi is on Black-ish and Francia Raisa is the one who gave Selena Gomez her kidney.

bitchboy9000 said...

*Yara

SteveD said...

Grownish is already renewed for season 2. What pay cable show was Francia on?

jessorella said...

Aniston and her new show about morning news? Although IMDb cast doesn’t extend beyond her and Reese Witherspoon at the moment.

T. W. said...

I love that show! If it is 911, I guess Angela Bassett would be the A Lister, Connie Britton the B Lister. Connie would be on the way out because Angela is an executive producer.

+1 TW Bassett and Britton

What about Katherine Heigl in Suits?

Jennifer Garner as A- list actress that doesn't need controversy
Lena Dunham (defunct cable show)

new show is Camping just announced from HBO, Dunham/Konner behind it

"Jennifer Garner is returning to television in new half-hour comedy series Camping, which has been greenlighted by HBO with an eight-episode order. Based on the British series created by Julia Davis, the project hails from the Girls duo of creator/executive producer Lena Dunham and executive producer Jenni Konner. Production begins this spring in Los Angeles. Co-written by Dunham and Konner, who also showrun, Camping centers on Walt, whose 45th birthday was supposed to be a delightful weekend back to nature, at least according to his obsessively organized and aggressively controlling wife Kathryn (Garner). But when the camping trip gathers Kathryn’s meek sister, holier than thou ex-best friend and a free-spirited Tagalong in one place, it becomes a weekend of tested marriages and woman-on-woman crime that won’t soon be forgotten. Plus, bears."

Wow, what an original and fascinating concept! *throws Dunham/Konner off cliff*
HBO is stupid. Dunham and Konner are toxic. I wish wish WISH that tape of Dunham/Konner grossing out over interracial sex would get leaked. Dunham is a POS and shouldn't have a career.

sandybrook said...

Good fucking grief can't HBO do better than this with all their subscribers?

Millennials are the generation directly following Generation X. They range in age all the way up to their early/mid 30s and are not Generation Z, the kids born after 2000. I've never encountered such an oft misused term. Stop applying the term "millennials" to 12 and 13 year olds. We vote.

LooLooEasy said...

Totally Garner and the new Lena Dunham show. On the contrary, Enty, Garner loves attention any way that she can get it. This includes, I suppose, controversy. As long as she appears innocent and guilt-free, she's happy just to be talked about.

Great research beebopcowboy

Yes this show has garbage fire written all over it.

Brayson87 said...

Millennial women will do anything, but Gen X women are sassier.

beebopcowboy said...

@LooLooEasy

agree - she calls the paps so many days to follow her during her Mom Walks. the character description is perfect fit for her:

"Garner’s Kathryn Siddell-Bauers is an L.A. mom who is far less cheerful than her Lululemons imply. She controls the proceedings with an iron grip until she’s faced with a woman who undoes all her best-laid plans."

Garner is annoying, but she's not as horrific as Dunham/Konner are. an ugly duo inside (and esp out, yikes..), smh.

beebopcowboy said...

@Brayson87

source?

(besides the chip on your shoulder)

beebopcowboy said...

Im asking as a female millennial, for context.

April said...

I would be pissed Selena is drowning that kidney

bitchboy9000 said...

@cobblepot I am a millennial too...

Brayson87 said...

Personal experience, Millennial women are more spontaneous and open-minded, whereas Gen X are more challenging and sarcastically funny. I'm a fan of both.

Dal said...

Anna Lyn McCord and the Aerobics show

Nubian Princess said...

Preach!

Candle Crazy said...

Jennifer Garner & the Dunham HB0 show.

Todd Brink said...

@beebopcowboys the only thing missing from that description was "...and hilarity ensues"

Don Kieballs said...

Not Grownish. Friend is on show and it's a fun set. young social media stars enjoying a decent job. Younguns seem to like it.

Major G said...

I wanted to think 911 b/c Angie Bassett seems to stay FAAAAAAAR away from controversy, but Connie Britton's never been on pay cable. I'm on board w/ Jen & Lena

I was guilty of misusing that term, Cobblepot. But just because I originally considered myself a Gen Y-er (I still call myself that). And so when people began calling us "Millenials", I assumed they were talking about the generation AFTER us.

It starts at 1981. I romanticise Gen X a lot, though (because I grew up idolising celebrities—as in famous artists I bothered learning names of—who were Gen X, like the Spice Girls/European boybands, they even had a Pepsi commercial about it). I have a very hard time following celebrities who are Millenials because it feels like idolising people who you went to school with (but then again, I was bullied severely in my school years AND I attended an undergrad uni notorious for producing celebrities—so it feels so BLECH).

I like Thomas Hiddleston, though, but he's my cut-off and exception, so he gets special treatment. The other Millenial celebs can remain unnamed blind item subjects and I couldn't care less who they are.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

I think it's because Gen X women learned that they need to stand out in more creative ways than Millenials (who believe all they need to do is flash their butts on Instragram—and like get over yourselves, everyones got a butt, you're not special). Millenials are so grass-roots that way, taht it feels weird idolising any of them.

Gen X-ers knew they had to BE special. Millenials just assume they ARE special.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

I must be an old soul. I aspire to be that brand of sassy.

Generation Y is between x & millennials. Generation x is currently 39+

The Secret Life of an American Teenager, on the former ABCFamily.

bianca said...

Gen Y was eliminated by American sociologists a few years ago and divided between Gen X and the Millennials. I think the deciding factor was childhood exposure to technology--the folks born between 1976 and 1983, who were previously classified as Gen Y, were more likely to have had an "analog youth" while those born after were more likely to have had a "digital" one. I'm 40, so I was considered Gen Y as a teen, but I'm now Gen X. Therefore, the Millenial designation actually starts at 1983.

bianca said...

What do you call FX? CB starred in the 1st season of American Horror Story.

SteveD said...

"Pay cable" is HBO, Showtime, Starz or Cinemax. ABC Family and FX are basic cable, which in Enty-speak is a "channel" or "cable network".

Oh, wow. @Court B @bianca, sorry I misread. That's fascinating...

Eh, but I'd rather still be Gen Y (I even used to semi-lie that I was born in 1976 online so older people would talk to me). Millenials are gross Instahoes and I want no part of it. LOL. 😂😑😭

Monkey Do said...

Yeah well, I'm a 43 Gen Xer and just came home to a membership request from the AARP. FML

Connie was also on Nashville. Nashville moved from ABC to CMT or whatever it calls itself now. It is a basic cable network but when I read pay cable I think all cable. Cable tv is not free.
