Today's Blind Items

I guess this guy is A list. I really dislike him though so if it were up to me I would make him B list. He definitely fits the A list definition. Probably calls himself an A lister. Film. Without looking him up on IMDB, I can't be sure, but I don't remember him doing anything for television. In that harsh light he would look horrible. Not that he is all that great looking now. Anyway, our married actor gets a few massages each week. Nothing scandalous or anything like that. He actually has someone who comes to his house and that's that.

Well, around the beginning of May his masseuse went on vacation. Our actor needed a massage and made some calls and the next thing you know our actor is getting massaged out in West Hollywood. Well, it turns out our actor was enjoying this massage quite a lot and the next thing you know our actor is getting orally serviced by his male massage therapist. Our actor pays for the massage, but doesn't leave a tip. Now, the question here is how does anyone know this happened? Well apparently the massage therapist films everyone who comes in for his safety. Well, I guess he was a little pissed about there not being a tip so the next thing you know he is having a party and shows the tape to all his guests. There hasn't been a copy made, but there have been three parties since and the rumor is spreading fast. The funny thing is our actor has no idea what could potentially be coming.

I don't know who it is but I'm dying to find out! Nontipping scum.

jax said...

massuese is an idoit looking to be charged with prostitution.

i so hope its Tommy,but that would be too perfect. he'd never let anyone film him ,knowingly anyway.

Kevin said...

"and that's why, you always leave a tip"

Anyone know the answer to this from he who will not be named

"Who punched out the guest of another patron in his "altered" state at one of the MuchMusic Video Awards after parties on Sunday????"

Saw that on AGC, not his site.

catherine said...

someone email me to explain the "he who will not be named" i must have missed something, el has mentioned it too

beyondseattle@gmail.com

Lucky777 said...

Matt and/or Ben immediately came to mind, mostly because of the opening lines.

Unknown said...

Ben Affleck sure is a busy guy.

jessi1974 said...

Hi guys! I've been a lurker for about 18 months now but I had to jump in on this one. Not sure if all the clues fit, but my first thought was Nick Cage.

MontanaMarriott said...

Mel Gibson?
Kevin Costner?

captivagrl said...

cage

svd said...

how about sly stallone?

jw12 said...

Mel is def. A list no question about it so can't be him.

MontanaMarriott said...

I like the Cage guess, hmmm I wonder if the masseuse is Asian?

captivagrl said...

the massage therapist is about to get a very large tip(settlement)!

Kevin said...

"someone email me to explain the "he who will not be named" i must have missed something, el has mentioned it too"

I posted that and the "he" is P#r#z.

The guy is definitely A list - Ent is just saying "I guess" he is because he dislikes him.

jannjeanettej said...

Back to yesterday's blind - in the post about Beckham today, Ent makes a comment about right-clicking on photos. If you right click on the photo of JLo (from yesterday, I think), it's titled aajl - as in "A list couple with A list name recognition." Usually the photos only have the celebrity's initials.

Just a thought...obviously I have way too much time on my hands.

janetagain said...

Arent there a bunch of blinds about travolta getting messages.

MontanaMarriott said...

yes and how he loves to "seduce" his masseuses, not sure if its him or Spacey that got banned from every spa/gym in WeHo for making the moves on the masseuses, anybody know?

lutefisk said...

Travolta did "Welcome" Back Kotter".

and dbf,
"_if they are not gay, then they are Ben Affleck_"

Reverend Ramona said...

My guess is Russell Crowe.

Jack Nicholson!

Unknown said...

Crowe lives in Australia and there hasn't been any news of him around WeHo.

Jack is not married.

Am LOVING the Nicholas Cage guess because he fits this blind very well.

Mother Campfire said...

Obviously we're not too interested in this blind.

So...someone, really, what the eff is going on with Kristen Johnston?? stapling gone awry? Meth?

Mia said...

I'm going benicio del toro...it's the lighting that got me, but not sure if he's married

Murphy Brown 2020 said...

Oooh. Russell Crowe is a good guess. He's a notorious dick, and he's indisputably A-list.

They can't ALL be Affleck, you guys!!

jw12 said...

Big Sur- Kirsten looks hideous

Ayesha said...

I'm sorry, but that masseuse is a dick. Any legit massage therapist would not suck off a client, videotape them without their consent, or retaliate for not being tipped. Basically the "masseuse" is a prostitute.

Yes, it's not nice to stiff someone, but something about this story makes me sympathize with the actor a little bit.

Unknown said...

I think we should make Affleck the answer to the gay ones too.

brendalove@gmail.com said...

Just say no to the evil that is Affleck.

lutefisk said...

We should just have an all- Affleck blog--we need to list every blind, & somehow make him fit. Anyone up to it?

lutefisk said...

I found this:

http://yellowpages.heraldextra.com/Affleck+Park--2C+Weber+County--2C+UT/Massage+Therapists.zq.html

massage therapists in Affleck, Utah. Could it mean anythingz?

jw12 said...

I saw Ben in a Lifetime movie w/ Patrick Duffy.

kill me now

captivagrl said...

hey, what's going on in here?

Unknown said...

Possibly the actor didn't solicit this, from the beginning of the story it sounds like he really wanted a massage. Didn't freak when the guy went down, and figured it was his tip...err, no puns intended, to let the guy do this. Shrug. I don't recall what the going rate for that tip should be.

Unknown said...

I dont blame the masseuse for video taping what goes on, and he probably has a sign or something that says that the premises are videotaped. The actor is lucky hes not bbheing blackmailed.

My guess is Matt Damon

lutefisk said...

Jw12--do tell!! Was either 1 getting/giving a massage?

Unknown said...

Im going to change my guess ot Hugh Jackman

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Sorry, but I gotta go with that switch-hitter, Ben Affleck.

Mic said...

Lynn & Alex (hollywoodragmag) have said its a well known fact in WeHo that travolta gets massages there.

lutefisk said...

But Travolta has done television & t.v. movies--who can forget "The Boy in the Plastic Bubble?"


even Affleck has done t.v.

Shelly said...

When I was a waitress and bartender I depended on tips for my income. My hourly income of $2.15/hour went towards my tax liability on the IRS required declaration of 15% of my sales (the restaurant I worked for was audited and was very strict with income reporting), usually leaving me with a "paycheck" of $0.00. Tips were the only money I brought home. People who earn upwards of $60/hour and still expect/feel entitled to a tip drive me crazy. This c@*ksucker (LOL) is a douche!

P.S. While I did get many tips that were more than 15%, I also got plenty that were below, but the average was indeed about 15% of my overall sales. Meanwhile, I had to tip out the support personnel such as busboys, barbacks, hostesses, etc. leaving me with about 10%. Imagine that you had to pay the custodian at your office out of your own pocket.

Sorry for the long rant! It's been many years since I've depended on tips to pay my bills, but stories like this one just get under my skin a bit.

On a side note, I'm probably pissed because I just went to the hairdresser where I tipped 20% on top of a $150 cut/color, but that's one person that I want to be happy when she sees me.

*girl said...

For sure it's Cage! EL clearly dislikes the man - just search "cage" and see for yourself. EL was delighted when he got to write about Cage's IRS issues. Plus he posts the most hiddeous pictures of Cage... hence the "In that harsh light he would look horrible. Not that he is all that great looking now."

That and the fact this totally seems like something Cage would do.

Murphy Brown 2020 said...

lwall7 -- Not quite sure what began this particular thread, but I hear you, loud and clear. I depended on other people's generousity to pay my own bills for waaaaay too long. Waiting tables is exhausting, somewhat thankless, and you don't really know how hard it is to serve people unless you've done it.

Celebrities and/or insanely rich people who don't tip well should be publicly exposed for the absolute wretched assholes they are. Isn't Avril a douche when it comes to this sort of thing? And I'll bet J-Lo never fucking tips.

Everyone should have a service position at least once in his or her life. I'm convinced that it makes you a more compassionate, patient, tolerant person. Because most human beings are horrid cheapskates.

And don't get me STARTED on how little money I made the weekend Billy Graham's fucking son came to give some big Jesus talk at a local arena. Christians don't tip worth a SHIT.

JJ said...

'In that harsh light he would look horrible. Not that he is all that great looking now.'

That immediately hit me as someone older perhaps with a skin problem. My first guess was Tommy Lee Jones. Is he a good guy?

Mel-Tang said...

Marc Anthony.
Wasn't he in a movie or two?
Nothing I remember for television.
And the light on him would be like dracula coming out of his coffin in the afternoon.
He also just suggested that Jennifer L. get a massage to calm down about the babies.

lutefisk said...

Skeletor won't fit--they live on Long Island, & we decided the other day they are broke. Besides, who would touch him??!!

Dead Angel said...

Matt Damon is filming right now, mostly in the mid west.

I have no idea why all the hate for Ben Affleck, I've met him a couple of times and he's one of the nicest people ever. He's a great guy. I am so confused by the harshness towards him - it's really not deserved.

I agree that Nick Cage, who can't act his way out of a bag, and got big breaks from his family connections, who is a horrible person. Just horrible. I could see his wife doing his son, and Nick driving up from NPB to cruise Weho for "massage". That man is truly ugly. Inside and out.

lutefisk said...

No one hates Ben--it is a running joke that for some reason his name is constantly guessed for every blind,
and in some peculiar way you can actually make him fit. Go search the archives--his name constantly pops up. There is no harshness involved at all. People just always seem to consider him.

Miss X said...

Ernestine, not ALL Christians are bad tippers. I tip at least 15%, usually 20 & encourage the rest of my party to do the same. I know it's something "we" are known for and I don't want to fit that stereotype.

For the blind, I like Nic Cage. He's not just unattractive, his voice makes my ears bleed. I can't stand to listen to the man.

Dijea said...

I would jump up and down if this hit the internet or the airwaves or ET Tonight. HAHAHAHAHA!

Tip your waiters, waitresses, bartenders and anyone else out there. To not is just trashy!

Dijea said...

Oh and maybe Affleck was working as the masseuse

Amber said...

Nic Cage with Affleck as the masseuse yes.

Who punched who at Much Music after party??

WebMama! said...

Nah, can't be Affleck, he is well known as a big tipper.

westward ho said...

"it's not nice to stiff someone"

BWAHAAAHAHA. i'm sorry, but in this context, that just struck me funny. *snort* okay, okay, okay. i'll leave before i say something like, "but obviously he GAVE the guy a tip." *snortsnort*

Geebz said...

Ernestine,

I'm a Christian and tip between 15 and 20 percent EVERY time. Your generalizations are slightly bothersome.

P.S.

Christians are judgmental.

The Dude Abides said...

There's no such thing as a male masseuse. The word is masseur. Anyway, my first thought was Cage. He's A-list because of his acting Oscar and his starring roles in some blockbusters.

Because of the misuse of the word, it's hard to say if the person who regularly massages him is male or female. This whole thing is still very funny.

Jerry said...

Not very funny to those of us who are massage therapists, which I've been for 17 years.

The "massage therapist" in question isn't a massage therapist at all since legit practitioners don't have sex with their clients. Also, since privacy is a big issue with us, the videotaping had to be surreptitious -- which means, if this blind is true and his name gets out, he'll be in another business before long. After he gets out of prison, I mean.

Amanda said...

Ha- I have been around Christians for 30+ years (including Christian school, university, seminary and many churches) and believe me they are crap tippers. The more fundamentalist, the worse the tipper.

PS- to the two Christians who said they were good tippers- tipping 15% is nothing to brag about. When I used to work at the Olive Garden (Jebus!) they were a nightmare. A table of four would order the soup salad and breadsticks (back then it was about $4.50 each) and run me ragged for an hour or two with at least 10 trips of refilling food and drinks. Then they'd leave about $2.50. Hmmm.

Everyone SHOULD work in a service job once- I think those of us who have done so all agree this is true.

Rant finished.

Anonymous said...

I'm voting Kevin Costner on this. He's well known for needing/being serviced by his masseuses.

A Pimp Named DaveR said...

First and only thought was Cage. I don't think some of the other choices (e.g. Costner) are dumb enough to allow this to happen. Cage is.

i am a princess, yes i am said...

janetagain: I think you are pretty clever and I too look for things like that as well because most people tend to label things in a way to give themselves clues about what goes to what, just for the sake of keeping things straight. especially if you've got many different things to keep straight and you can't be obvious (ie: blind items) about what belongs with one another.

it may be a co-winkie-dink (LAMO, haven't used that word since 3rd grade and never have spelled it) but I tend to lean towards the theory that most "coincidences" aren't really "coincidences".

as for the BI, it seems to me that this "A lister" is naive and/or clueless as to how "celebrity life/Hollywood" works, or is new to the business, b/c one who has been in the buisness for a while would know that everything gets out/found out eventually. Someone will talk, it just takes time, and the last sentence "The funny thing is our actor has no idea what could potentially be coming" implies that they don't know that.

whew ~ sorry so long ~ that took A LOT out of me

jw12 said...

I came across this yesterday and found it funny. It's people that work at starbucks and what celebrities order. Towards the middle it becomes a tipping war.

http://starbucksgossip.typepad.com/_/2007/04/its_time_to_ask.html

On a personal note...

I was doing my 30 block walk home one day and popped in to get a ice coffee from starbucks. I normally tip but that day I didn't. The cashier told me that there was a tip jar. I was furious so I sent an email to starbucks. They called me the next day to apologize and sent me a gift card.

jw12 said...

pimp-Costner has been busted before

thurbers said...

Well Liam Neeson is A list, not particularly Hollywood, supposedly hung, and not all that good looking as he ages...and he is the random photos.

mooshki said...

Adrian, I think Ent needs to add a FAQ to the site and you can write the Affleck entry - you nailed the "Affleck Effect." :)

Re:tipping, you all should visit bitterwaitress.com It's one of my go-to sites for when I'm bored at work (if Ent hasn't updated, of course). There are some great tipping stories in the forums. I've never been a waitress, but some of my friends have. You can tell so much about a person by how they tip. (I'm a 20%-er, unless the service is extraordinary, then I go up. Only once did I tip 10%, and the waiter was absolutely horrible.)

Unknown said...

I'm sick of seeing the same names guessed for every blind:

here are some big male names that are hardly ever guessed for blinds, can we start throwing them in the mix:

Will Farrell
Jack Black
Tom Hanks
Ben Stiller
Adam Sandler
Harrison Ford
Samuel Jackson
Eddie Murphy
Johnny Depp
Jackie Chan
Orlando Bloom
Jim Carrey
Mike Myers
Christian Bale
Chris Noth
Jean Claude Van Damme
Seth Rogen
Tobey Maguire
Morgan Freeman
Al Pacino
Daniel Craig
Sean Connery
Rob Schneider
Gerard Butler
Vin Diesel
Jason Statham
Viggo Mortenson
Woody Harrelson
Ted Danson

etc
etc

lutefisk said...

Mooshki--"Affleck Effect" I love it.
It can be like 6 degrees of Ben Affleck...
& Rufusjonz--you should add Kevin Bacon--nobody ever guesses him.
He has a long-term career, long-term marriage, involved in acting/music, married to a star in her own rights that does movies/t.v. He has a famous sibling, she is from a famous yet tragic family...and he is known as a good guy
Surly we can fit them in somewhere.
Has Ben ever given him a massage? That is what I really need to know!

jw12 said...

moosh-omg-the David Lee Roth one is hilarious.

mooshki said...

rufusjonz, most of those have actually been guessed, just not as often as Affleck. :) In fact, a few of them have been the best guess for very big blinds. Ent doesn't even bother making the Eddie Murphy items blind anymore. If you're curious about any of those guys, go to Google, and put this in the search box:

site:crazydaysandnights.net celebrity name

ms snarky said...

I was going to guess Matthew McConoughey (spelling, whatever), but then I re-read the post and the married part. But seriously, am I the only one who gets a gay vibe from that guy? I'm a chick, and I just don't see the hetero oozing from him.

lutefisk said...

Ms--Matthew M. totally strikes be as a team player.

ms snarky said...

ha - which team?

Unknown said...

Thanks for such a good blog! Fascinating and insightful indeed! Thank you so much for sharing it to the public. I also wanna share this hair extensions that we have. This would surely be of great help to you.
