Today's Blind Items -- Kindness

Wow a kindness at Fashion Week. B list actress who does television most of the time. She might actually be C list but she has a fairly unique look and had one show which gives her staying power for a little longer. Plus one very memorable episode on a great show. Didn't actually happen at a show so I will save you the time of wading through all the actual shows. This was a party. Happened in the restroom. Our actress was standing at the sink with another woman and chatting with her. The woman said she was leaving on an international flight and was already running late. The woman left. A minute or two went by and as our actress was leaving she saw a purse on the sink. She knew from her chatting that it belonged to the woman she had been chatting with. She grabbed the purse and made her way back into the party. The place was packed and she couldn't see the woman. She remembered that the woman was leaving to go catch a plane and so went outside to look. All of the cabs were about a block away all lined up and she saw the woman about two people back from getting into a taxi. Our actress took off down the street. After about three steps one of her heels broke and she went tumbling down onto the pavement in her designer dress. She took off the other heel and went running down the street yelling the entire time. If this were a movie she would have only caught the woman at the airport or something, but the reality is that everyone waiting for a taxi looked up including the owner and she actually realized at that moment she had forgotten her purse and headed back to the actress. Our actress had a ripped dress, no shoes, and a scraped hand but delivered the purse to the woman. The woman was extremely grateful and said the flight could wait, and that she wanted to make sure our actress was ok. They took a cab back to the party where the woman made sure our actress got her hand looked at by someone and made sure she got back with her friends okay as well. The woman offered to pay for new heels or dress, but our actress declined.

Maybe Lucy Liu?

lyz said...

what is Lucy Liu's memorable moment on a great show? She does have a unique look...

Unicorn Jones said...

maybe when lucy liu was on that sex and the city episode?

YahMoBThere said...

No clue - but both women are wonderful.

Brenda22 said...

No offense but how is this a kindness? wouldnt' any decent person do this (chase down a person who left their purse if you know who it belongs to?). I think Hollywood is so full of selfish bitches that when someone does something like this its considered extraordinary.

Maja With a J said...

When Ling "lost control" on Ally McBeal.

I thought America Ferrera but I don't really watch Ugly Betty so I don't know if there were any specific memorable moments on her show...

Praetorian said...

Wasn't she in Ugly Betty too?

Praetorian said...

I mean Lucy Liu, of course :)

SkittleKitty said...

What about a woman who appeared on Seinfeld? Lots of memorable single appearances by women on that show.

Specifically, I was thinking of Brenda Strong, though I guess she's probably not B-list. (She does the voiceovers on Desperate Housewives--playing Mary Alice-- and was the woman who went out in public in NYC with just her bra on under her suit jacket on Seinfeld.)

Dijea said...

HMMM, Have no clue, but its nice to know that someone - and I mean anyone - in this day and age would do that. Most people wouldn't try that hard.

Do unto others !!!!

GammaGirl said...

I don't know why but Sophia Bush was the first name to pop into my head. Maybe it's because she has been at every show at fashion week?

She's B list, but I don't think "One Tree Hill" is that well known or considered great TV. She did do that ep on Nip/Tuck where she was hooking up with Matt's girlfriend...

She's been really nice every time I've met her, so I guess that's why I thought of her.

YahMoBThere said...

Brenda, I think both women went above and beyond.

Kait said...

Who is the blonde woman on Big Love that always dresses really weird at events??

That was the first person to pop in to my head but I can't for the life of me remember her name.

Anonymous said...

I could see this being Amy Adams, but she's not TV.

Anonymous said...

kait: chloe sevigny?

jax said...

Jane Leeves from Frasier..did the Master of His Domain episode on Seinfeld.

Pamela said...

I think Brenda Strong is a good guess. I know she still does the voice overs on Desperate... but you don't see her on it. And her Seinfeld episode (no bra) was pretty memorable.

Rare Avis said...

Jax, I think you are right.

Unknown said...

jenna fisher?

Rare Avis said...

Then again, I had no idea who the other B lister was whatsoever in the previous kindness.

I am going to a very chichi hotel bar for drinks tonight in LA. Hopefully, I will have a juicy BI for Twisted.
I was at the Warner Bros. lot for an event this morning.

Unknown said...

How about Kristen Johnston?

She does mostly tv and starred on "3rd Rock from the Sun."

She was also in a very memorable episode of Sex & The City - a socialite who slipped and fell out the window during a party...Could be her.

She also has an unusual look - very tall/large woman - really pretty though. Seems nice in real life too.

Pamela said...

Jenna Elfman?

kellygirl said...

sad, but I don't care

YahMoBThere said...

Rare, don't come home 'til ya have something for me...lol.

YahMoBThere said...

OFF TOPIC -

I can't believe some of the bullshit posted today and NO MENTION of the results of Heath Ledger's autopsy, which showed an accidental overdose of prescription drugs. Anyone interested can read the info here:

RandomRamblings said...

Without a doubt, it's Chloe Sevigny. She has a very unique look that is getting her work and she is always at Fashion Week.

Chatty Cricket said...

twist, there was a whole discussion about Heath in the comments of the daily mirror blind....

as for this BI, maybe Brooke Shields? She's super tall in real life and had a great part on Nip/Tuck, right? I could picture her doing this.

Unknown said...

Teri Hatcher?? She had a memorable episode on Seinfeld.

"they're real and they're fantastic!"

YahMoBThere said...

Chatty, thanks, I don't read comments for every post, so thanks for pointing that out.

I hope you don't think I was talking about the posters,though - I meant I can't believe EL didn't mention it.

J-Mo said...

random ramblings: Chloe Sevigny doesn't do television most of the time, I can't think of any tv shows she's even guested on. She's far better known for her movies.

Chatty Cricket said...

Oh no I knew what you meant! There was this whole sub-discussion about the ME's announcement, and the Family's statement, and PA-LENTY of opinions (of course)!

Thought you'd want to see it. ;)

Chatty Cricket said...

Didn't Chloe guest on Will & Grace with Edie Falco? Also, as a side note, can you believe the short list of actresses we've come up with who guested on Seinfeld?

I still say Brooke Shields.

YahMoBThere said...

Wheewww.... I don't always type what I mean, so I'm glad you got it.

I do want to see it. Thanks again!

Leisa said...

Teri Hatcher.... They're real and they're spectacular......

jlb said...

Totally off topic, but Kiki's apparently in rehab with Eva...via socialiteslife...
http://socialitelife.buzznet.com/

captivagrl said...

brit's out?

Chatty Cricket said...

Also off topic, but completely insane is that Britney is apparently out of UCLA Medical Center.

Huh?!

AnjieRox said...

I'm going to throw this one out there...how about Sara Rue from Less then Perfect??

Julie said...

i actually first thought Portia diRossi. idk

YahMoBThere said...

And I just read that Delta Burke is in a psychiatric ward.

Kory said...

You're right. I would have just stolen her money and threw her purse in the alley.

jax said...

"very memorable episode on a great show"

if you cant' remeber it ain't her.

im still going with Jane 'the virgin' leeves

takeme2espana said...

Someone/anyone...dish on Delta?!?

Eeyore said...

My thought was Chloe Sevigny, with the memorable moment being giving actual fellatio on the big screen to boyfriend Vincent Gallo in The Brown Bunny?

jax said...

kiki is in rehab too.

jagerlilly said...

How about the actress that shared the kiss with Ellen on her show when she came out of the closet? Can't remember her name though...

Unknown said...

Dr. Cuddy from House? She was memorable on Ally McBeal as a transvestite. At least that is always what I think of when I think of her but no idea on her name.

Rare Avis said...

Hey TS
FYI going to the same hotel where she is right now.
This is gonna be good...

Pinky said...

Jagerlilly - that was Laura Dern.

Rare - what hotel as who is? (I know you're talking to TS, but I'm a nosy broad)

pebbles said...

hey twisty & califblondy,

I just posted the blind from yesterday's Gatecrasher (RR's husband) under Enty's NY Daily News BI for today.

jax said...

why don't thoise scumbags leave her alone this is just sick.

Rare Avis said...

I am not leaving for a few hours. Am attending an event,will post if anything good relant to this.
If not I will keep BI for future.
xx

Rare Avis said...

The Pink Palace and I am posting on a site openly, no worries. Oh the Beverly Hills Hotel, known as the Pink Palace.

Elsbit said...

Amy Smart? There were pictures of her crying at fashion show as she walked.
Wasn't she a guest on Scrubs?

Rare Avis said...

Why are you coming? I will buy you a cosmo ;) Ent, I will get you a double black rocks twist. Heh..

Pinky said...

Shoot, I'd love to come for a cosmo, but there's a good chance my boss will be there tonight - although I don't think he knows there's an event. Yikes. Better let him know. And this means I owe YOU a cosmo, Rare. You're making me golden in the eyes of my boss ;)

Rare Avis said...

The event is a small one, no carpet, etc. And lucky you, I am a beer girl. Raincheck....

Pinky said...

mmmm...beer

Satine2002 said...

Dr. Cuddy's name is Lisa Edelstein but I don't think she really fits the description. She has a unique look and has been on a memorable episode on Seinfeld too (rizzoto girl) but that's about it.

Unknown said...

Ok, first time poster, long time reader!!! Love this site and you guys who post all the time totally crack me up!

This might be totally from left field, but what about Sarah Jessica Parker?

She is unique looking, her role on SATC has given her tons of staying power, and the memorable episode of the show could be the episode of SATC where she totally wipes out on a runway during fashion week. The actress here fell down DURING fashion week. I am a little thrown off by the B maybe C list though, because I would consider her solidly B-list. What do you think??

Unknown said...

chloe sevigny is on a tv show right now, for whomever said she doesn't do tv...

kellygirl said...

Lisa Edelstein, in real life, is major butchy dyke. Her BF is Jorja Fox (from CSI) Lisa was in some lesbian band and is a big activist. She is not the Fashion Week type, trust. She looks fem on House, but she's not into fashion.

kellygirl said...

Hey Rare, while you're at the Pinky, could you do me a favor and throw a drink in the face of the Stalkarazzi? no, that's a waste of good booze. just push them down the stairs.

Maria Shriver is there, and she ran into Britney and was repulsed at the behavior of the Paps. Hope she makes it her new cause to get some laws on the books here. TMZ needs to be hung out for public flogging

story said...

Christina Applegate?

what is eight past six? said...

@ shelby:

"I am a little thrown off by the B maybe C list though, because I would consider her solidly B-list. What do you think??"

I see where you are coming from, but SJP has not really done much work (acting) since SATC ended. There was Failure to Launch but it didn't do much if I recall correctly, and I can't even remember if that came out before or after SATC ended. I'm not counting the SATC movie in this b/c it has not been released yet.

So assuming it is her, I think in this case Ent is saying that technically she should probably be called C list (under his system anyway), as acting has cooled off for her, but b/c she was so beloved in that role, she still has some B list clout to her name. For example, she still has some good endorsements as well as her perfume and clothing and/or shoe line (can't remember which), and the fact that she can still get endorsements and pull in product sales without having done anything else speaks to how much people still recognize and like her.

It's also worth pointing out that the lack of roles after SATC has probably not been for lack of opportunity. I am sure she could have landed any number of tv pilots and probably some movie roles too (even if Failure to Launch...failed to launch) if she really wanted to. I think this break was 100% her choice and that's cool.

A long-winded way just to say I agree with your guess. Also, while I have never watched a full episode of SATC (just never could get into it) I vaguely recall her trying to chase down a taxi in the show intro? If I am making that up please let me know but that image is kind of rolling around in my head right now. I do remember there was one rather memorable episode where she found herself being held at gunpoint in an alley and the guy stole her Manolo's. "Our actress had...no shoes..." I'm sure SATC had several memorable episodes to its fans of course. As a non fan I have to say that scene would be the one I'd remember of what I've seen of the show.

Another clue, I think, is that he mentioned she went tumbling "in her designer dress." I know it's fashion week but wouldn't that go without saying anyway? These are celebs we are talking about. It looks like another reference to SATC's designer-lover mentality IMO.

/long-winded

Unknown said...

Gayla:
Wow! Thanks... that clears up my confusion on the B/C list business. I guess that would make sense. I don't remember her doing anything but the Family Stone and Failure to Launch in the years since SATC ended... except those endorsements.

I don't remember her chasing a cab in the opening credits, but I think there's an episode where Charlotte (Kristin Davis) chases a cab and then falls down. I definitely remember when Carrie got her Manolos stolen. That would also be memorable for sure. Thanks for agreeing with my first guess! lol

white lorelei said...

OK, how about Jamie Gertz? I think she has a unique look, a lot of people know who she is but never really seem to know what she's IN, she had that series "still standing" that's still in syndication, and she was in the "spare a square" episode ("The Stall") on Seinfeld.

lyz said...

I like the SJP guess. I think Gayla has reasoned it out really well.

Satine2002 said...

@ kellysirkus:
Lisa Edelstein is completely into fashion! Just type her name in any photo agency, you're going to find her in a lot of fashion shows! Plus, I believe she was in the fashion week last year.
And I believe she is not butchy dyke as you say, she has had a lot of boyfriends... And being open minded as she seems to be, she doesn't seem the type that would have beards...

sauvage said...

Dearest gayla,

I agree with Sarah Jessica Parker being a good guess. But the taxi thing in the intro of "SATC" went down a little different. She's not chasing a taxi, she's just spilled over with water by a bus running by which gets her to look at the bus and realise there's a giant picture of herself on its wall. The passing taxi is just part of the background.

what is eight past six? said...

Ah, that's it sauvage. Thanks for clearing that up.

Unknown said...

wondered about Lisa Kudrow...

Unknown said...

Aren't all the people with perfumes A-list though?

you don't see the mario lopez's out there hawking their scent because you have to be a certain status of appeal/fame to be branded thusly, so I'm thinking that having a successful perfume is a confirmation of your A-list status, therefore SJP-Alist

Unknown said...

I thought of Persia White ("Girlfriends")

bramar1205 said...

I think the Brooke Shields guess is an excellent one; she is who I immediately thought of. She was in that memorable Super Bowl episode of Friends where she was stalking Joey that lead to her getting her own show. I also think she is really tall which could be what is meant by a unique look.
