Blind Items Revealed #2

January 26, 2018

My favorite walking blind item/B list television actress is the only person I know who complains about getting more publicity than she has in years, outside of her courtroom appearances. Maybe she should pay the people she wants to help her and she wouldn't have to deal with these first world issues she considers so important.

Taryn Manning/Stylist had her wear a $200 dress to the Grammy Awards

People liked her outfit. Dumb junkie whore.

I think I should start a company that "edits" celeb social media post in between the time they hit post and the time it actually posts online. I would read each post to help them avoid being problematic.

Like telling Taryn maybe don't post about how she wouldn't have minded being exploited as white trash, as long as she was in on it, too. Which is problematic seeing as she first complained about being exploited as white trash by not being advised of the normal people dress.

I can understand her being embarrassed at wearing a bargain dress when everyone else around her was wearing ridiculously overpriced dresses, but a) she is Taryn Manning, not Katy, Taylor or Beyonce and b) a savvy, *smart* celebrity would spin it to their own advantage, like when Sharon Stone wore a Gap turtleneck to the Oscars and everyone loved it

It was a nice dress, leave it at that.

@Don
I assume they mostly post between lines.

She should have embraced it and marketed herself as purposely wearing a dress that is elegant and affordable to most people who aren’t millionaires, like Sharon Stone did with the Gap t-shirt she wore to the Oscars several years ago.

Boldblonde said...

Wrong PR move. She should have owned up to wearing a dress that's not super expensive, yet looks just as good as the others on the red carpet.

Her stylist should have been upfront with her, and considering it was a bargain dress, it should have been tailored for her.

nancer said...

she's a wreck and she handled this badly but i could see her point. shit, she could have worn that dress as a 'regular person' and since she's an actress at the fancy awards thing, she wanted a beautiful, expensive dress. i get that.

however, it was a nice dress and i think her beef should have been with her stylist and that's it. no need to make it public, go on and on about it and make herself look like the bad guy. she obviously doesn't get that.

Don Kieballs said...

If she had stuck with one opinion on it, she would have been ok.
I was given a cheap dress instead of couture because I'm seen as white trash is a legitimate complaint, particularly with her explanation of her younger life.
Turning it around and saying she would have been happy to exploit the white trash stereotype/persona, if only she had the been part of the decision, makes her out to be willing to do the exact thing she was complaining about being done to her AND others.

A $200 dress in no way makes one "white trash"... I have over a million in net worth and I won't spend more than $200 on a ball gown. I don't consider myself overly frugal either. You can get a nice dress for $200

SteveD said...

What a trainwreck this girl is. She made quite a pair with the actor who played her boyfriend on Sons of Anarchy. That dude killed an old woman and was dead a few months later, so that makes Taryn the winner of the two.

Truthseeker said...

Her responses were tasteless. She obviously loved the dress when she tried it on and dressed in it and went on the red carpet, She looked as good as she can look, I liked it more than most dresses we have seen this awards season. She complained that they had to return the dress after, now that, was a bit off, its 200 bucks, wear it, keep it.

Don Kieballs said...

The dress doesn't make her white trash. Her saying she is white trash and that they exploited her being white trash, and following up with she would have played along with the white trash thing had she known, was the reason I said white trash.

$200 is a lot for many people to spend on a dress, rich or poor. But a $200 off the rack dress next to couture designs is very different.

I work as a translation editor (well lately I've been doing more translating, but I'm just saying—this is a brilliant, legit business idea).

It's better than working at a troll farm (or worst:
hiring one to do your dirty work while your "main account" only says kind things and you look good to the people you suck up to). People are using social media in all sorts of twisted ways these days. It's becoming the new normal. When a total nobody like me has trolls especially assigned to terrorise me for calling somebody out, you have to wonder how desperate people are.

Do any other commenters here also get terrorised but stay silent? What percentage are the commenters on this blog even legit when one user (me) has TWO tailing me for calling one celebrity out ONCE. How many do users who guess (frequently AND correctly) have? This is crazy.

Man I run a parody Twitter account where I play my own PR and praise my own work. How are people being dead-serious doing that IRL?

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Oh, but wait Don: The social media editor idea sounds better-suited for a department within a PR company. Not sure it could stand on its own.

I paid $188 for a dress last year for my sister's wedding and I am still pissed. I waited till last minute and bought it out of complete desperation. still pissed at myself for that and still have tag in drawer mocking me. cute dress. like this 👗 but deep navy/purple. Vince Camuto(?) size 4. worn once. make offer

KittensRUs said...

@wantsapphires - Truth. Plus you can get almost anything you want that's been worn a few times on ebay. I like Prada but only a moron would pay for it new.

Oh boy this is getting GOOD

Exactly! Every once in a while a celeb wears something that anyone in America could afford just for the publicity. I still can’t wrap my head around Taryn’s rant about her dress because I thought it was very nice. I only saw a still photo but it was one of my favorites.
