Today's Blind Items

#1 - I just have to say that some of my favorite gossip are the items where we have someone who was all sweet and innocent and on a tween show and now they are just up for absolutely anything. When they can be a home wrecker to boot it is just that much better. We are going to have to go C list for all three of these people, but it is a really fun one. #1 is an actress who was the co-star of a huge tween show on a network. Makes it better than the tween shows on all the cable channels. Even though she was on the tween show and played a tween, the funny thing is she was already well out of her teens. Since then she has done a little of this and a little of that and got married. For #2 we have another actress. Foreign born. Parents are very famous dramatic actors. #2 really has not done a whole bunch, but then again she is really young. Legal, but young. #3 is an actor. Not much of an actor. More known for his body and his on/off celebrity girlfriend. I would describe the celebrity girlfriend but that just seems like too many people. Most of you would know who she is though. So, #1,#2, and #3 had themselves a little on set romance. Yes, all three are in the same film. Makes it easier. Started with #2 and #3, but then when #1 and #3 got involved he got all three of them together. #2 was not very good at keeping this discreet and so now #1 is in the middle of a divorce and #3 is on double secret probation for the 20th time with his celebrity girlfriend. #2 just got fake breasts.

After this one, I'm going to need a nap.

jagerlilly said...

Isn't Fox the only network that carries/carried tween shows? I can't think of any from the big 3...

Adventurous Kate said...

Enty, you got me. At 23, I'm too old for this.

Does anyone watch One Tree Hill or one of those shows?

Pinky said...

Wouldn't a tween show be something like the Suite Life of Zack and Cody? That's on ABC on Saturdays. And Ashley Tisdale was in it.

irishstayc2 said...

What about something liek 7th heaven? or was that more family show um.... Or sabrina the teenage witch , or the amanda bynes show w/ jennie garth? Those would be network tween shows for sure.

It seems like the tween show was on a while ago based on what he writes

Pinky said...

Okay, I'm going to say #1 is Selma Blair. She plain a teenager on "Zoe, Duncan, Jack & Jane" and then married Ahmet Zappa. Damn - I thought I had it with Driving Lesson and 18 year old Kelly Burnett, but she was born in the states. Rats.

jax said...

Boy meets world?

family Matters with Eddie winslow dating Karrin Superhead? no clue.

Melissa said...

The Suite Life of Zack and Cody is actually a cable show though. they just show it on network t.v. as part of a Saturday morning line up for kids

KKWS said...

Saved by the Bell is the biggest network tween show probably ever and the stars were in their twenties when they were playing teens. In this blind, only #2 is the young one.

Lucky777 said...

I was thinking Saved By The Bell...
Tiffany Amber Thiessen, Mario Lopez (more known for his body), and Elizabeth Berkely.
Sounds good, but don't know if they were in a film together...unless it was the Greg Louganis story

Lucky777 said...

KKWS said...

Only #1 was from the big tween show.

califblondy said...

Double secret probation?

That's hilarious.

Melissa said...

I thought Saved by the Bell, too but, all those girls were teens when it started. This is weird and should be easy. Someone who played a tween (age 10-13 or 14) on a show and was really twenty something??? there cannot be that many people who can do that...

jw12 said...

What about Gabrielle Cartis on 90210?

Kristen S. said...

Whatsherface from 90210 played a high school student when she was really in her mid 20's. THe one who played Andrea.

Kristen S. said...

jw beat me to it!

ktmonster said...

A tween show is one that targets kids 10-13, there can't be that many of them on network television, especially a few years ago...

Kristen S. said...

Gabrielle Carteris has 2 movies in post prod, but I don't recognize any of the other names.

Kristen S. said...

Not
Amanda Bynes - no movies in the pipeline, unless it was her, Zac Efron, and Nikki Blonsky on the set of Hairspray ha!

The clue that is evading us is with the young one with new boobs, her parents are famous. We find her, we find them all!

jw12 said...

Kirsten- the only name I recognize is Randy Spelling.

Unknown said...

The guy sounds like Jesse Metcalfe

lutefisk said...

Gabrielle Cartis was 19 when the show started so she was still a teens. And she would be close to 40 now--It has to be someone younger.

Clydica said...

#1 - Melissa Joan Hart - Sabrina the Teenage Witch. The show started in 1996 when she was already 20 years old. She's done a little bit of other stuff since then and she got married the year the show ended. ("Tween" could be a play on words - Teenage Witch)

catherine said...

i also get lost on these tween blinds because dont they target pre-high school kids, and since i am older then that and dont have kids, i just have no idea. Gabrielle was the only one i knew who played a significantly younger role then her age but she played a junior in hs which is a tween. got me.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

I'm way to old to figure this one out, but does anyone have any guesses for Lainey's riddle today?

Maja With a J said...

I thought gabrielle carteris too, wasn't see in her late 20's when she was on 90210?

Clydica said...

#3 - Mario Lopez?

Unknown said...

I was thinking Jesse Metcalf also for the guy and his girlfriend Nadine from Girls Aloud or whatever. He's currently filming a movie with Amber Tamblyn?

Anonymous said...

@ little miss smoke and mirrors:

There are some very good arguments for the "other woman" being Shannen Doherty on the Lainey Lurv group on Facebook. And people are guessing that the man is a politician, or someone not an actor.

ms_wonderland said...

#2 should be easy to get - the late teens daughter of foreign dramatic actors. I'm going through the Brit acting dynasties and got nothing.

ktmonster said...

ENT said that we would know the girlfriend, I don't know that many people recognize Nadine from Girls Aloud by herself...

PotPourri said...

Ok "Tween" show is not teenagers. So that is pretty much none of the shows anyone has listed. It would have to be Mickey Mouse Club, or something geared towards 9-12 year olds.

Unknown said...

I thought this may be Topenga from Boy Meets World, but I don't think she's ever been married.

PotPourri said...

The Suite Life guys are not C list, they are A, at least to the Tween world. These guys are all adults now, which also leaves the Suite Life people out.

Unknown said...

Winnie Cooper

PotPourri said...

Hillary Duff just got breast implants and is just now 20 years old. Her show would be Lizzie Maguire.

Mikael said...

wasn't punky brewster a tween show?

the.princess.leia said...

Jamie's Girl said...
Hillary Duff just got breast implants and is just now 20 years old. Her show would be Lizzie Maguire.

I don't think her parents are famous dramatic actors are they? Plus she's not foreign born.

Also, it only says #2 is foreign born, it doesn't specify that the parents are as well.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

@ sarah - Thank you!

amanda kay said...

can't be amber tamblyn- she isnt married.

i thought for a millisecond it could be tatyana ali from fresh prince with tyson beckford (they are filming together) but i dont think tatyana ali is married.

thats as close as ive come to an answer :(

Lucy said...

I think Melissa Joan Heart too.. :P

jw12 said...

it's not Blossom b/c she's not filming anything

ktmonster said...

Melissa Joan Hart and Mario Lopez were in Handcuffed for the Holidays together but there isn't a girl in the cast that fits #3...

Anonymous said...

kristin - re: jesse metcalfe/amber tamblyn. Amber is from an acting dynasty, but born in the states. Also Ent's close associate, so I doubt he'd spill on her.

Unknown said...

#1 screams Sabrina the tweenage witch to me. better than average tween show well known that mjh was in her twenties making it and she hasn't done much since.

Found a film (albeit a made for tv movie) that she's in with Mario Lopez - a popular guess for #3 called Holiday in Handcuffs.

No guess on # 2 yet

Anonymous said...

Alright, Wikipedia links for research.

All previously aired shows by Network

NBC
ABC
CBS
FOX
UPN
The WB

I couldn't find anything that matched the clues we have for #1. Good luck everyone. I'm internetless for the next few days.

ktmonster said...

Here are some other tween shows: Clueless, Boy Meets World, Step by Step, Family Matters, 8 Simple Rules, Full House, Growing Pains, Lizzie McGuire, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Sister Sister, Moesha, Two of a Kind, Doogie Howser, The Wonder Years, Blossom, What I like about you, Reba...

Melissa said...

We have to keep in mind that the tween show person was not the star of the show. She was a costar

lutefisk said...

Stacy Dash was 30-33 when Clueless was on the air. She played a 16 year old.

ktmonster said...

I checked Stacy Dash, her IMDB says she's divorced

A Pimp Named DaveR said...

For some reason, and even though it doesn't perfectly fit, I think #2 is Eva Amurri.

She is (1) young, but legal (22), and (2) her "parents" (Tim Robbins & Susan Sarandon) are famous dramatic actors. The problem -- she's not technically "foreign-born", even though I think she spent a portion of her early years in Italy with her father, director Franco Amurri.

The movie in question could be "New York, I Love You", which stars everyone. Looking over the cast of that film, one could slot Rachel Bilson in as #1 and Hayden Christensen as #3. (The item doesn't say that #3's on/off girlfriend isn't #1!!!)

Just food for thought.

ktmonster said...

#1 would have to be older then say Rachel Bilson, the tween show was cancelled so she would have been in her mid 20's when it ended, I would imagine we are looking for someone in their 30's

the.princess.leia said...

Don't forget #2 is someone who recently got a boob job.

(Pimp Dave, I was also thinking of Eva, but I don't think it's her.)

WineGirl X said...

damn... and who got a boob job recently?

ktmonster said...

#2 sounds like someone who we would know her parents but not necessarily her since she hasn't been in anything of note, plus she may use a different last name.

Carte Blanche said...

I'm dizzy after reading that.
Ok..

1) Co-star of network Tween show. In late 20's early 30's? Now getting divorce.

2) Young foreign born daughter of dramatic actors, just got boob job.

3) Actor:Famous body & girlfriend.

Angela said...

Thanks God, Linda Cardellini isn't married. And "Freaks and Geeks" wasn't a huge show...

littlemanwhatnow said...

double secret probation is from animal house


what about 1 tree hill

tiffini thessen got a boob job

A Pimp Named DaveR said...

@Princess -- I just can't come up with any young female with "very famous dramatic actor" parents other than Eva. And "boob job" could mean a reduction....

I think the big problem with my theory is that Bilson played a teen, and not a tween, on "The O.C.", and she isn't married (that we know of).

ktmonster said...

one tree hill is still on, this indicates it was a show that used to be on. Plus none of the people on one tree hill played characters between 10-14

ktmonster said...

i can't even think of a tween show on network TV with middle schoolers...

A Pimp Named DaveR said...

@ myself -- unless "boob job" = "fake breasts"

/goes back to reading comprehension class....

ktmonster said...

i get the sense that the tween show was on sometime between 1995-2003

littlemanwhatnow said...

ryan reynolds was on that show 15 back in the day....he's known for his hot body and scarjo is his gf

littlemanwhatnow said...

ryan reynolds was on that show 15 back in the day....he's known for his hot body and scarjo is his gf

jw12 said...

littleman- I was just going thru what RR was working on and nothing seems to fit.

Is he C if he's working w/ Bullock and Roberts?

ktmonster said...

i also wonder if the fact that ENT doesn't say that #1 is married with children is telling...maybe we are looking for someone who is married but no kids for #1, that would eliminate MJH.

gossiphound said...

you know this is not even worhty of being on this site. Ent knows that we are not juveniles, and could care less about "tween" stars.

Unknown said...

List of American Children's Comedy Series:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:American_children%27s_comedy_series

lutefisk said...

OK--the post does not say comedy--how about Sarah Michelle Gellar/Buffy the Vampire Slayer--non-cable show, she was in her 20's at the time. married Freddie Prinze, Jr., & has done a few films this year. Just a guess.

jw12 said...

Neve Campbell is married and doing a movie w/ Joseph Fiennes.

Is Joe a C lister?

jw12 said...

I think we would have heard something if SMG and Freddie were getting a divorce.

Unknown said...

Rosario....was going to say the exact same thing.

#1 - Melissa Joan Hart from Sabrina The Teenage Witch (technically star, but her aunts were featured quite heavily. Salem, anyone? *cough*) - Married, played

#2 - No idea.

#3 - Mario Lopez (Actor, done stuff here and there. More famous for his body and his on/off relationship with Karina Smirnoff 'celebrity girlfriend').

All of the other women in the TV movie they did together are either too old or have worked too much to meet the clues in #2 except for perhaps Maureen Jones who only has a few gigs listed on IMDB but there is no bio info on her so no clue on age (although one of her roles in 2007 was as 'lingerie girl' so she cant be too old?)

Brenda22 said...

I also think the guy is Jesse Metcalf. He's the person I thought of when I read the blind. Ent says most of us would know who she is when talking about the girlfriend ( and not most PEOPLE). Most people on this blog would know Nadine from Girls Aloud.
Plus, I think Amber is not involved in the triangle but she's good friends with ENT, maybe she gave him the dirt.

lutefisk said...

If we heard something about any of the involved parties, it wouldn't be a blind item amy longer!

jw12 said...

Well..Loaded has

1.Nicole Eggert-Charles in Charge


3.Jesse Metcalf

jw12 said...

Adrian- true but SMG had the lead in Buffy not a co-star.

lutefisk said...

I know--I wasn't a tween during that time period, & I am just trying to find anything close that might make sense!

jw12 said...

me too buddy!!!

jw12 said...

imdb has Nicole Eggert listed as separated

what about Sarah Michelle Gellar--was 20 when she started Buffy and her movie "career" since has been pretty damn C-list worthy. She's also been married and rumored to be getting a divorce.

Miss X said...

JWL2, I like your Neve Campbell guess. She was 21 when she started Party of Five, though I'm not sure that was a tween show.

I had no idea Neve was married...I thought she was dating John Cusack.

I'm going to take a closer look at SMG and Nicole Eggert (for #1)

Miss X said...

Okay, if it's SMG, who are #2 and #3?

Not Nic Eggert..she was 15 when she started on Charles in Charge

AlishaK said...

I'm not sure a tween show HAS to involve kids 10-14, as some have guessed, but be directed at them.

SMG might be a good guess, but I'm not sure Buffy really suits as a show. Party of Five might have been a better fit, or some of the older sitcoms that have come up.

#2 seems to be the key, but will be hard to find.

Murphy Brown 2020 said...

I cannot muddle through this verbal labyrinth, but I just wanted to say that my favorite part is the very last sentence. THAT really nails it down for us, Ent. Thanks!

The Dude Abides said...

No way that SMG is C-list. I agree that if we can find out who the parents are for #2, then we can guess the rest. It's not any of the Neeson/Redgrave/Richardson/Nero clan, as there aren't any kids in their late teens at the moment. Not any kids of Sinead Cusack/Jeremy Irons, they only have sons. Ugh...drawing a blank.

merrick said...

double secret probation is a reference from animal house .. wonder if there is a clue in there some where ..?

Blah R. Squeaks said...

doug neidermyer from animal house

the actor who played him is named mark metcalf.

coincidence?

nuclear said...

and mark metcalf played the master on buffy during season 1...

Tania said...

Not SMG - Allyson Hannigan?

Melissa said...

I have searched high and low and gone through every movie coming out this year and last year. I have searched all tween shows on network stations for the past 15 years and i have searched every daughter I can find who is foriegn and whose parents are famous actors. This blind does not fit into any of it. the only way this blind is possible is if there is a little white lie in any part of it. Or the time frame is totally jacked up.

sara said...

I think just #1 was on a tween show. Don't see where it says #2 and #3 were, as well.

I like Eva Amurri for #2.

Melissa said...

Yes. Just number one was. #2 is an actress born out of the states to famous parents. They are all in a movie together. But, there is no movie that has actors that fit these 3 descriptions unless it comes out next year or came out before 2007

amanda kay said...

i am starting to think he just makes this stuff up just to stir up drama.

Unknown said...

I agree; only #1 was on a tween show. The #2 foreign-born youngin' is on the movie everyone is filming together. #3 does sounds like Mario Lopez.

We only need to find the tween actress who is now grown up and getting a divorce -- or officially separated.

Unknown said...

Sounds too old for #2 but:

Lauren Lee Smith (born June 19, 1980) is a Canadian actress.

Smith was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The stepdaughter of a documentary filmmaker, Lauren traveled around the world with her family.

In 2008, Lauren starred in the film Pathology from the creators of Crank. The film also stars Milo Ventimiglia from the TV show Heroes and Alyssa Milano from Who's the Boss?

A Pimp Named DaveR said...

@melissa -- I can't see anyone fitting #2 other than Eva Amurri, and I'm guessing the "foreign born" part is just a mistake.

If #2 is Eva, and the film is "ILYNY", then the only "tween show" actress I see is Bilson, except she isn't married. #3 could be Orlando Bloom; he fits the description.

So close, yet so far on this one....

the.princess.leia said...

MyPimpDave, I'm still trying to go with you on the whole Eva thing, but here's the problem I have with it.

1. Has she recently had a boob job? (Seriously, I don't know.)

2. She's 23, so I'd say that's more than "just legal". I'm thinking the just legal is more along the lines of 18-19.

I SO want to agree with you, I just can't right now. :(

A Pimp Named DaveR said...

I find it hard to believe that Eva would need fake boobs with those genes running in her blood.... but there have been a number of pix of her looking busty recently. I'll be honest -- nothing I've seen of her gives me the impression that she's had work done.

I just can't even think of someone who could be described as the child of two "very famous dramatic actors". The only other two famous dramatic actors who are married and in the right age range to have a young but legal daughter that I can think of are Liam Neeson and Natasha Richardson -- but their kids are a lot younger. (And I think they're both boys.)

#2 is the key here. Find the famous parents, you find the daughter. Find the daughter, and everything else falls into place....

I'm gonna go do some IMDb hunting. So close....

Kim's World said...

elizabeth berkley and some girl named briana evigan are in a movie and briana parents are actors...

I just spent 2 hours looking up everyone from Danielle Fischel to Tatyana Ali to the chick who played Kimmy freaking Gibler and I got NOTHIN! This famous parents/foreign born person sucks!

curious_cailyn said...

OK... I don't have time to look into the possibilities for #2 and #3, but I have a tantalizing prospect for #1... Meredith Monroe.

She played the chirpy/"innocent"/somewhat annoying "Andie McPfee" on DAWSON'S CREEK. Now, if there was ever a "hugely successful" tween-ish network (non-cable) show - 'The Creek' is IT. ...Plus, Meredith was born in Dec. 1969, so she was 28 years old in 1998 when she started playing 14-yr-old freshman "Andie"(!)... Meredith is also MARRIED, and doesn't have any children.

As for recent films, she's in "Wake" (now in post-production) with a bunch of co-stars that I, unfortuately, don't have the TIME to "investigate" at the moment. (Work can be SUCH a distraction!) ... Oh yeah - and she also filmed some movie called "bgFATldy" that's supposed to come out this week.

So if anyone has the time/inclination to look into Meredith's co-stars, please DO!!

Miss X said...

Curious Cailyn, I'm with you on this. It's been bothering me & suddenly Meredith Monroe came to me today as the answer for #1. If only I could figure out #2 and #3.

I wonder if it must be a movie or could be a tv show?

Three sisters said...

Curious Catilyn, I looked up Meredith Monroe, and the next two movies shes in, "Wake" and "BgFATldy" don't star any well known male actors with hot bodies and celebrity girlfriends.....or none that I recognize.

Three sisters said...

Three sisters said...

And it says all three are in the same film, not TV show.

And pimp named daver is totally right, Eva Amurri's boobs are 100% real.

curious_cailyn said...

Hey miss X and starburst -- Thanks for not leaving me hangin' here all by myself. :) ... After my last post (almost 2 wks ago?), I wasted even MORE time trying to find some "MM" connection - with zero luck... Meredith is a perfect "#1", but unless she was involved in some mystery movie (i.e., not listed on IMDB), I don't see how it can be her. (On the bright side, I guess that's good news for her husband!?) ;-)

I really really hope Ent includes this one in his "reveals" - or at least tosses us a bone (a few decent HINTS!) At this point, I can't help but wonder if one of the clues is "off" somehow... I find it really odd that NO ONE can come up with an actress who is:

1) The daughter of "famous dramatic actors"
2) Very young/ barely legal
3) Foreign-born
4) Newly "augmented" :)
5) Has a slim resume, but recently appeared in a film with a former co-star of a "huge" network tween show...and an actor known for his bod & celeb girlfriend.

Seriously! If her parents really ARE that "famous," she just shouldn't be that hard to find!! (Stamping my foot!) :0
