Four For Friday - Turned Out

This actress was still a couple years from being legal when she moved out of her home. She was probably a B-/C+ list mostly television actress at her peak. She regularly appeared on a long running network hit. When she began to get noticed by people on the streets, one man took a very big interest. He was well over a decade older than her but started wining her and dining her and the next thing you know she was moving out of her house and moving in with him. She would go to work during the day and at night she would have to have sex with as many as five or six guys a night, all of whom wanted to have sex with the underage actress who they saw on television every week. Her "boyfriend" was charging each man at least $1000 and they would just cycle in and out all night. This went on for months and months. The "boyfriend" was making nearly $100K a month just off the actress and he wanted more. He convinced her to find other actresses she would meet on auditions and soon enough she was joined by a rotating cast of mid teen actresses, one of whom would become a regular in several Disney shows. As for our actress? She was killed by a competitor of her "boyfriend" who wanted her for his own business.

Tara from Judging Amy?

sandybrook said...

Full name Tara Correa McMullen

nicksauntie said...

@sandybrook that fits perfectly!

Melvin The Reanimated said...

Yeah, +1-ing that.

Geeljire said...

Abolish Disney.

atoukzug said...

The "boyfriend" should send in a resume. He sounds like Producer material.

Melvin The Reanimated said...

Erin Sanders for the Disney? Was on Zoey 101, as was Tara, and later of Big Time Rush AND was in an episode of judging Amy, so maybe they crossed paths.

sandybrook said...

Demi Lovato somewhat fits for the other girl who was in several Disney shows starting at around the same time.

SteveD said...

Blaned on gang involvement which I suppose is true but not the full story.

Her mom was a casting agent and she had a guest spot on Zoey 101. Hmmm.

Melvin The Reanimated said...

@SteveD, I immediately began looking at the Zoey 101 cast for that. Victoria Justice was on it, but as I said above Erin Sanders, who would have been underage at the time of Zoey 101, was also on Judging Amy, which Correa regulared on.

Alos, wasn't Amy Brenneman the thought to be subject of a blind just a week or two ago, for molesting the young actress on Judging Amy?

sandybrook said...

Yes she was..I'm pretty sure it's Tara too.

M said...

Not Disney shows

roque said...

Zoey 101 and Big Time Rush are Nick not Disney.

Brayson87 said...

+1 Sandy on Tara Correa-McMullen. The Purge is seeming like a better idea all the time, there is no limit to what some adults will do to children.

Sara, Making It Work said...

ALWAYS thought Tara's death was suspicious.

Sara, Making It Work said...

The other girl could be Amy Bruckner, who was in the movie Rebound with Tara, and on some Disney stuff.

awful, horrifying

Randyman said...

From WIKIPEDIA fits perfectly

Correa-McMullen's only film role was in the 2005 film Rebound, when her mother, who was working for a casting company at the time, recommended her daughter for the role. Correa-McMullen had no acting experience prior to landing the role.[2] She later won a part as a recurring character on the CBS TV series Judging Amy as a young gang member, and she appeared in several episodes during the series' sixth season. Correa-McMullen also had a small role on one episode of Zoey 101.[3]
Murder

In early 2005, 16-year-old Correa-McMullen moved into her own apartment in Inglewood, California and began dating a gang member ten years her senior. On the evening of October 21, 2005, she was shot to death by gang member Damien Watts.[4] At the time of her death, Correa-McMullen was outside her apartment complex, and was trying to run inside for safety. Two other people were also shot in the incident, but survived.[5] She is interred at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles.[6]

Why don't they leave the first night the creepy boyfriend tries to pimp them out? Better yet call the police.

Sara, Making It Work said...

So, these blinds... are they a precursor to a big Judging Amy takedown? Part of the Les Moonves/ CBS thing that's supposedly coming?

Sunspirit said...

Debby Ryan for the Disney actress

SteveD said...

Melvin, there was. Amy and her husband run some program where they mentor young actors. He is a director and has some questionable associations in his past.

T. W. said...

@Sara, Making it work - good question. There was a blind a few days ago about a girl being molested by a female star on set & I think the star's husband/bf joined in. We couldn't figure out if it was a real life or an on screen husband/bf. Some people guessed Amy Brenneman for thst one.

shakey said...

Went to look up Tara and found another young actress who died of an overdose - Skye McCole Bartusiak. She was the youngest daughter in The Patriot. She doesn't seem to have any Disney shows in her credits (I only looked at Wikipedia), but she was probably put through the system like so many others.

Debra Morey said...

At the time, it was said she refused to leave the gang life to do a follow up episode. I didn’t know her mom was a casting director, thought she was an inner city kid. This is disgusting.

Annski said...

100% agree. It's a cesspit of unimaginable proportions.

Orgonite Rocks said...

How do you allow yourself to get pimped out? Not blaming her, just wondering what process a pimp puts someone through to get to that point. Yikes :(

SteveD said...

Pimps use all kinds of manipulation. They may start off as a boyfriend and ask her to do a favor for a "friend" and then another and the girl doesn't realize it's for money until she's used to that treatment. Sometimes day one they gang rape her and tell her she's damaged goods and nobody else will want her now.

One of the stories on Tara's death says she was trying to save him from the gang life. Maybe a PR cover story, or maybe he used that on her. If she earns him enough money he can leave the gang life or something.

Orgonite Rocks said...

That sucks. Either these girls are put through crazy head trips or they are assalted or both. No wonder these people look for very young targets.
Damnit :(

Southern Man said...

Is it just me (a newbie here) or are the blinds rapidly getting darker and sicker?

Sara, Making It Work said...

Omg @Shakey

When I suggested the Judging Amy answer the other day, I didn't even dig through guest stars to see if anything looked suspicious.
Sky McCole Bartusiak was the same age as the girl from the other blind. I bet she was pulled into that mess. 😔 She was also in Don't Say A Word with Brittany Murphy. The director Gary Fleder is highly suspect, Natasha Lyonne accused him of raping her. She didn't name names but it is obvious.
Man, the web is thick.

Anyway, I don't think it's her, I suggested Amy Bruckner above, but good find!

Sara, Making It Work said...

Someday maybe all these kids will get justice.

trufflepig said...

It's dependence. Some women/girls will do ANYTHING for the man they 'love'.

Allowing yourself to be pimped out is just a step-up from staying with a man who cheats, treats you like trash, lies to your face, abuses you.

It's frightening how many women have a problem with dependence. Think of all the mothers that look the other way when their partner (sexually) abuses their children. There are even mothers that sexually abuse their own children because they're told so by a man.

BlissBoo said...

Dead at SIXTEEN! It's unimaginable. That poor girl. The hell she must have gone through.

From Wikipedia:

Tara Correa-McMullen
Born Shalvah McMullen
May 24, 1989
Westminster, Vermont
Died October 21, 2005 (aged 16)
Inglewood, California

I never watched that show so I had no idea that this happen. So sorry little girl, I wish you could have had someone protecting you. I cannot wait until more people in HollyHell BURN DOWN!!

DDonna Tarttty said...

And "Rebound" was a Disney movie, starring Martin Lawrence, who has had some very public breakdowns...what has this man seen, done and know?

Urban Rosebud said...

DDonna- exactly. What have some of these guys seen & been subjected to? Hurt people hurt people..

Cran Grape said...

I was thinking Amy to. She worked on 2 other Disney shows and rebound is the only connection that I see Tara has with a female actress from Disney.
