Blind Item #10 - A Dancing Boy Blind

While I'm on the subject of the college, and not I guess a blind or anything, but who applied and was rejected back then? This one actress, known today probably more for her activism than her acting. She was the star - at least I'm sure as far as many of the men and boys in the audience were concerned - of this long running network sit com back in the day. She is also known for her feuds, apparently driving this one actress to quit a certain later show, only to be replaced by another actress with whom she didn't get along. All that came up again late last year regarding a major celebrity scandal/divorce.

You have to wonder just how bad her grades were. I mean, being who she was, you'd have to otherwise conclude that all she had to do was spell her name correctly on the application to get in.

Alyssa Milano / Who's the Boss?

gauloise said...

Activism of #MeToo, not sure about the feuds though

gauloise said...

Maybe Charmed, Shannon D leaving, replaced by Rose

Ophelia said...

you got it gaul! I immediately thought of Alyssa too

Guesser said...

@gauloise, yes, getting the difficult Shannon replaced by the impossible Rose.

Unknown said...

I thought Shannon D. too.

This is the first DB comments section in a long time where food isn't the main topic. That makes me sad.

Just Paige said...

I know this wasn’t the intention of the blind, but I feel sorry for Alyssa Milano. No childhood and now saying she had no acedemic skills / options. No wonder she checked herself into a mental hospital.

SteveD said...

This seems far too comprehensible to be a DB blind.

Lol @Orangesoda

Jon said...

Why so much Alyssa hate recently? Actually, this site in general has gotten very dark. Everyone seems so angry and bitter.

Neal M said...

When does her yachting career begin? Or did I miss that?



AkhaldanSolo said...

Oh DB we can tell Alyssa Milano is and always has been dumb as a rock. I cannot believe we take some of you as role models the way we do, but hey that's Hollywood MAGICK.

Which university, though?

If she genuinely wanted an education, there are open admission colleges.

Sara, Making It Work said...

"The college", meaning the one you went to?

CJ said...

Alyssa doesn't have a chance at yachting. Are you kidding me?

She's broke and there are tax liens on her wages supposedly but check out the candid shots of her nude on the beach...you don't pay 5 figs for a body like that, even if you were a really big fan of Who's the Boss.

It's a good thing that Hollywood exists (for now) because all these dumb, entitled people would be peppered around the US instead of concentrated in the Hills.

Hollywood delenda est, however, and because of the stupid #metoo witch hunt, it will be. The casting couch is what makes Hollywood work. Without the casting couch, you're going to lose talented producers and directors are all going to be completely sexless JJ Abrams clones.

There will be no mystery to Hollywood - it'll become even more bland and corporate than it already is.

Blech.

HeatherBee said...

@ CJ- in lieu of the casting couch, where are all these talented producers and directors gonna go? Target? Burger King?

Thanks for the heads up, heading to Bing as we speak.

Maybe I am confusing her with Jess Alba, but I thought she had her own company etc. and a partnership with the NFL...

What was the point of this?

SarahElizabeth said...

You know what really confuses me about Alyssa Milano? That Lifetime would think she is remotely fashionable enough to host any iteration of Project Runway. Has anyone watched her on that? She perpetually looks awful, and never wears anything that looks flattering. Like, they couldn't find someone like Molly Sims to host? At least someone who used to model and still looks halfway decent? Christie Brinkley? I just never got why they went with Alyssa.

Glitter said...

There was a blind somewhere a few years ago that talked about how clueless the hostess of a new show was. Other cast members were astounded at how little she knew. Most people guessed Alyssa Milano and Project Runway All Stars.

@SarahElizabeth

Thank-you!

The only thing I can imagine is Alyssa was dirt cheap (and we know Heidi is skinflint producer.) Her voice is the WORST! What drama coach taught her to talk that way? And her overblown opinion of her own expertise, OMG, horrible host!

Too many concern trolls like yourself too.

So many celebrities get into prestigious colleges. You have to wonder how many of them actually have the true qualifications.

plot said...

A future esteemed alumnus often paves the way for many, not just celebrities, for acceptance at the prestigious schools.

BkWurm1 said...

I was going for Tori Spelling and a bad pun in the last sentence.

I mean, if you squint, Alyssa Milano works but really, no one thought she was the star of Who's the Boss. And certainly, no one would blame her for not being able to work with Shannon D who is notorious for getting kicked off shows.

longtimereader said...

She is 'chenny'! from the classic 80's movie Commando and once dated fred durst. How that gives her the right to pontificate upon politics i don't know.

Unknown said...

Charmed was not a sticom.
