Blind Item #19 - Oscars

This B+ list dual threat actress almost got into a fight with another actress over who was going to mark a milestone on the red carpet. Our B+ lister said she took a lesser pay raise for a new movie just to have the honor. She ended up with the prize so to speak.

I have no idea what this means so I'll just say Taraji P Henson being possibly snide to Seacrest?

Ernie McCracken said...

What means this? Me no speak Hollywood.

Do Tell said...

Taraji (as per TMZ) is now saying she supports Ryan Seacrest and her remarks were misinterpreted.

yepthatsme said...

@Sandybrook, your guess only works if you are saying Ryan Secrest is actually an actress? LOL!

sandybrook said...

No I'm saying she fought with the other actress to be first to get to him to say it. Not that I understand this BI at all.

Marlin said...

@sandybrook maybe it was a fight over who would make a remark to him. I thought she was being snide too, but read a few accounts where people thought she was being supportive. I don’t believe these particular accusations but I will go with snide.

Still don't get the obviously gay male harassing women angle.

hothotheat said...

Harassment is about power, not sex. Plus, Ryan pretends to be straight. What better way to make people think you're straight than sexually harassing someone of the opposite sex.

Gay men can be harassers for any number of reasons. Seacrest thinks he is deep in the closet, so he may think that helps the narrative. Other options are that gay men feel that women find them harmless (not true).

sandybrook said...

@Marlin when I first saw it I didn't think she was throwing shade at all, until just about every website I read it on said she was. I thought E! was being extremely careful of who got to speak to him and had him on 30 second delay to make sure nothing they didn't want on the air made it on the air.

I took her remarks to Ryan as "good people always win" & then gave him a pat on the shoulder.Meaning the both of them are "good".I may be naive but I really don't understand all the Ryan bashing.I believe him & never was a AI fan.

RestingConfusedFace said...

If Seacrest is a harasser, fuck him, but if he's not, am I the only one who thinks this may be the best possible time for him to come out? . . . "I've been falsely accused! I'm actually gay! I've never touched a vagina in my life!" He'd get all the sympathy. Ok well maybe Julianne Hough wouldn't appreciate it . . .

Alexandria said...

And again almost. Still hoping for some fight at oscars, lol.

Gator said...

Everyone knows Seacrest is gay, and the investigation turned up nothing. At this point, it's her word against his.

Dead Girl said...

I must be the only one on here who has been touch by a gay man?

mercyprosperity said...

Same old business. 1. Humiliate the celebrity (accusations; a song sung out of tune; legal hassle; etc.) 2. Reward them a few months later, with a new show, contract, whatever they ask.
It keeps the public guessing.

M said...

There is a witness plus she told others at the time.

T. W. said...

I think Seacrest is guilty of something. It may not be harrassment against women but he has something to hide and it ain't being gay or bi.

Roger Moore said...

Is Taraji a "duel threat?" No? Nobody's named the second actress. Barking up the wrong tree altogether here.

Peggy Ham said...

Mary j Blige for the dual threat who took less money. no clue on the other actress.

Kimberly Davis said...

Harassment and rape are about POWER...not sex.

people are idiots if they think gay men dont harrass women. it has NOTHING to do with sexuality.

also, a LOT of gay men are misogynists and like f'king with/being grabby with women. there's a built in misogyny in a lot of them NOT ALL OF COURSE JESUS

Watch the video. She chucked him under the chin.

Kno Won Uno said...

Well, that can’t possibly be because it’s been insufficiently clarified over & over in these very pages for the past week to ten days🙄.
Sea-lioning?

Kno Won Uno said...

Yep!

MissDe said...

I'm not some taraji obsessed person, but in all seriousness if this is her, how is she a B when he he gives A's to people who have barely done shit and or are in the media just for gossip not even work. Based on the half witts hhe calls A, taraji is more deserving

FancyFel said...

Seems like something between viola davis and Octavia spencer. Although I would think viola Davis is considered A list rating. But I'm not sure what the milestone would be. Something about first AA actrsss to do yadda, yadda, yadda. Viola is doing a new movie with Lupita.

gauloise said...

gay men can harrass women, especially verbally, by saying vicious, catty things about a woman's weight, body, making sexual innuendos, calling women slags, etc, that a straight guy would never say or even think. I work in fashion, and witness this all the time first hand.

jerks are jerks, regardless of gender or sexual orientation, and awful people will do what they have to to have power and make others uncomfortable .

Hi! I'm a 1st time commenter, who can't figure out how to make a cool screen name. I wanted to share a story about a gay man I worked with who got in hot water for sexually harrassing a female co-worker.

He was hilarious and very flamboyant. It was the cosmetics industry, so things were pretty casual when it came to "professional" interactions between all of us. This gentleman told filthy jokes. They bordered on the cringeworthy at times. For those of us who really liked him, we just chalked it up to him trying to shock people. We had a female co-worker in her early 20s, who was from a small town and was an evangelical christian. She had asked him not to tell the jokes around her, but he not only persisted, it seemed to add fuel to his obscene humor. She ended up making a formal sexual harrassment complaint to our company.

He was floored by her allegations because he was gay. He even had to go to some training and was suspended for a time. Of course, this was the early '90s and from then on we just hissed at her when she came around us because we loved our male co-worker. Now 20 yrs later, I realize his jokes were way over the line for someone like her to handle and he had just dismissed her as being a prude when she had asked him to stop telling dirty stories in her presence. All he had to do was wait til she wasn't around to tell the jokes, but he got off on offending her. I suspect because she had called one of his best friends (also gay) "a vessel of evil".
