Blind Item #7

This very smart A list runway model not named Karlie Kloss says that this A list singer who doesn't usually sing in English tried to sexually assault her several years ago when she was first starting out. I will have to check the timeline, but I think he was still married then too.

Marc Anthony?

Don Kieballs said...

Cindy Crawford - I only guessed because I assumed the not Karlie Kloss may be a hint at an alliteration. Although Karlie is very smart, so maybe enty was being nice and eliminating her.

Marc Anthony for the singer

T. W. said...

@Don Kieballs yes, Cindy was bright enough to earn a chemical engineering scholarship. Wonder why she turned it down ;)

Doug said...

Cindy Crawford was just starting out "several" years ago?

SteveD said...

Christy Turlington was often called the "smart supermodel" but that would also be straining the definition of "several" years.

FancyFel said...

Probably more likely the Cindy's daughter Kaia.

Tuesdi said...

What about Lily Cole for the model? She is known to be extremely smart. I googled it and she came up as #1 with KK in at #2.

Lily Cole attended Cambridge.

I raised my kids in Cindy’s hometown. She was all set to go to Northwestern until she was approached by a modeling scout. Besides talking to her fam, she asked her two favorite high school teachers what she should do. (Those two teachers taughtmy kids and they were beloved for all the right reasons.) Next thing, she left N’western

Cameron Russell has one of the most viewed TED talks and she attended Columbia.

Cindy Crawford and Falco!

Some of the dumbest people i ever met went to oxbridge. It's like harvard, full of rich legacy brats.

Gotta be Cindy. She was always mentioned as being a valedictorian in the magazines back in the day. So some creeper assaulted her when she was married to Richard Gere?

cheesegrater15 said...

Oh, wait. Read it wrong. He was married, not her.

Doug said...

@longtimereader, David Graeber once told Charlie Rose that at Yale, where Graeber had taught for a while, there were two groups of students: one group consisted of highly intelligent, motivated, ambitious people who did extremely well in school, and the other consisted of students who were "kinda dumb", as he put it, who didn't do very well. Typically, less than ten years after graduating, the members of the first group were working for the members of the second group.

About elite colleges: I tried to read I Am Charlotte Simmons by Tom Wolfe, but bailed out halfway through because it was too depressing. Then I sought out online opinions, assuming people would say he exaggerated. They said if anything he downplayed it. I already had a poor opinion of academia, but it turned out it could go lower.

Julio Iglesias

@Cail Corishev - Tom Wolfe is one of my favorite writers, and IACS is a good read - though the subject matter and conclusion is depressing. The school is supposed to be based on Duke and UNC Chapel Hill, but it could be any elite / powerhouse college's sports program.

T. W. said...

@Deborah Frueh Thank you! Perhaps Cindy intended to model for a short time & then go to school. Perhaps she needed time away from school for a myriad of reasons. On one hand she made the best decision but on the other she may have been the one to find the cure for HIV/AIDS. I choose to believe she made the best decision.

T. W. said...

@Doug - so true. This happens at all universities, not just the elite ones.

Anne T. said...

Off subject but as I was reading this 8 just got an alert that Scot5 Baio has second pedo accuser.

Ernie McCracken said...

@Anne T. - I saw that! It was Alexander Polinsky who played Adam on Charles in Charge. Wonder if Baio's wife will be helping with another video rebuttal ...

That’s what I always thought, too

nancer said...

why are you saying it's cindy?

she's way too old for this blind. nothing in the description fits her.

Immediately I knew the A list singer who doesn't sing in English is......Puerto Rican/New Yorker MARC ANTHONY.

J.Lo's ex husband Marc Anthony.

Then I googled "models with college degrees" and found out that Victoria Secret runway model who is definitely A List.....happens to be Puerto Rican......JOAN SMALLS

Joan is ever pictured next to Karlie in this "smart models" article in Vogue magazine. So they are considered on the same level of intelligence.

You probably don't recognize Joan's name, but you will likely recognize her face. She is absolutely A list model and one of the few with a college degree. She is a peer of Karlie Kloss.

She and Marc Anthony are both Puerto Ricans in the limelight. Wouldn't be surprised if their paths crossed. As for him assaulting her, I wouldn't be surprised. In an interview with JLo right before their divorce, the interviewer noted he walks around the house with a beer can permanently attached to his hand. He comes across like an alcoholic womanizer. All of his ex's are Latina models, actresses, or pageant queens.

SteveD said...

"You're killin' me, Smalls!" - Marc Anthony probably.

Bees in the Trap said...

JLo & Marc Anthony got divorced in 2014.

In 2013, Joan Smalls was ranked by Forbes as #8 "World's Highest Paid Models"

She was "starting out' in 2010. So if it's him, he attempted to assault her right in the middle-ish of his marriage to JLo. She walked Victoria Secret runway from 2011-2016. By 2014, she was on the cover of Elle magazine entitled "Return of the Supermodels." So if it's him, he did this right in the middle of his marriage to JLo. Again, not surprised, because JLo alluded that he was abusive.

Kno Won Uno said...

To keep the timeline plausible, Cindy Crawford & Julio Iglasias.
If it even is Cindy Crawford.

Kno Won Uno said...

Nope. Julio wasn’t married when Crawford’s career launched.
Then again, Enty doesn’t firmly state he was married.
Iglesias was divorced in 1979.

Brayson87 said...

Think it's someone more recent than Crawford.

Jean Grey said...

Luis Fonsi or Marc Anthony

one_eyed_bob said...

"sexually assault" these days means anything from offering to buy a woman a drink to rape, so the blind is vague

There are some things you can really only do when you're young, and you can always go back for a degree.

The first guy who was my direct boss at my first job was a Harvard grad and he's legit smart, though (good at critical thinking, knew if I mistranslated something as an interpreter even when he didn't speak the language just by auditory pattern-recognition, etc—I have so much respect in him).

That being said, I wouldn't trust someone from the country I currently live in (a developing country in Asia) if they attended an Ivy League school because it makes me think affirmative action (don't ask me how I know how applicants exploit this).

Scandi Sanskrit said...

*Respect FOR him (my English sucks, I'm an idiot)

Jennacheryl said...

Question? I am reading this on my cellphone so I may have missed something but does the blind state that the model went to an ivy league college? I just had a few thoughts of some models who've been around for a few years but not college educated.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Nope. Just a sub-topic within comments about Oxbridge/Ivy's unrelated to the BI itself.

MissDe said...

Cindy and Christy T been around too long. Even allesandra wouldn't fall in the "several years" category. She's been huge since I was in my late teens and through my 20s. She's an OG VS Angel. Maybe Smalls? Funny it's hard to think of anyone smart lol
