Today's Blind Items

It has been about six months give or a take a month or two that I had a blind which talked about a marriage that had ended almost as soon as it began. It involved a female lead from a hit network drama. So, I'm sure one of you mater sleuths will find the item. Anyway, I always was under the impression that they broke up because he is a loser, and she finally caught on to that fact. Well, he is a loser, but what he managed to do in the very short time they were together is burn through almost every dollar she has earned for the last three years and her earnings for the foreseeable future. Turns out that besides his horrendous business sense, that he is also a huge gambler and was signing marker after marker in Vegas based solely on his wife's income. Our actress has so little money right now that the only way she can afford to drive a car is because the dealer is giving her one for free for promotional purposes and her agent bought her another.

Robot said...

Yeah, Ellen for suresies.

palealebrew10 said...

Ellen, hands down.

Harriet Hellfire said...

Yeah, I think we all agreed that it was Ellen... *L*

Ice Angel said...

Sad. :(

Yup, sad. Golddigging happens no matter the gender or sexuality!

Lisa said...

Ha! I was going to guess that stuck up, squinty-eyed chick from Gray's Anatomy. Yay, I got one!

Leah said...

I think what's so sad is that EVERYONE could see that marrying that loser was a huge mistake, and yet, she was blind to it.

It's like watching a car accident in slow motion. Arg...

not a famous adrian said...

Wow! That sucks. She didn't know he gambled before? That seems like something you would realize about a person you are engaged to.

Teanna said...

When did she get divorced? There is no report of it anywhere.

Mika said...

Ellen's husband is odd looking.

calculator said...

But Ellen Pompeo is still married (just checked IMDB). Doesn't this blind make it pretty obvious that the relationship is over which would be divorce?

Dee said...

Definitely Ellen. Here's the original BI, which was revealed on the 4th of July:

Blind Item Reveals

May 1, 2008


#1 - That marriage didn't last long. You know the B+ list actress on the hit network drama who got married and said it would last forever. Heck, the fake marriage from the same show is going to last longer than this real one. How long do you have to stay married in order not to return wedding gifts?

Ellen Pompeo

WTF said...

Did I miss the David D reveals?

Anonymous said...

Wow, nice job ladies.

wtf: I don't think he did them yet.

I feel bad for Pompeo, she might not be the nicest person, but being the lead on a show and being the least successful/respected and now poorest person on there has to suck.

flavia said...

I don't get it. Ellen hasn't got divorced yet. She bought an adjoigning lot to expand the size of her garden. Six months ago she bought a guest house, kristin confirmed. Besides Ellen doesn't strike me as a person who would get married without a prenup or who would let "her husband" burn her savings without saying nothing.

nunaurbiz said...

Too bad the clues don't fit to the "One Tree Hill" exes, Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush. That was over pretty fast.

dvz said...

Well, thank god she at least has TWO cars to drive. Now I'll be able to sleep at night.

brendalove@gmail.com said...

Flavia, honey, some gals will allow anything to happen as long as they have a man.

brendalove@gmail.com said...

trogdor said...

Hahaha Dvz!

Ya, if you're broke, why do you need two cars?!

Is she B+ though? Besides her show, I've only seen her in Old School.

Ed said...

Ellen Pompeo, I was going through the blind reveals last night and reread that one. Such a shame

kimi said...

I remember they were on Punked and she was pissed because he was going to leave a flirty waitress a very large tip on accident. She looked mad because it probably was her own $$$. She seemed pretty whipped though.

The Hamilton Family said...

Why Ellen Pompeo and not Kate Walsh or Katherine Heigl?

bookstalker said...

Hamilton Family, because Kate Walsh would be the fake marriage referred to in that same blind and Katherine Heigl would beat the shit out of any man that pulled that crap on her.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

So I guess we can expect to start seeing Ellen doing some endorsements.

Kate Walsh *does* hawk for Cadillac, but I'm way more inclined to think that she's the subject of the fake marriage blind.

Little Blue Pill said...

teanna: When did she get divorced? There is no report of it anywhere.

calculator: Doesn't this blind make it pretty obvious that the relationship is over which would be divorce?

flavia: I don't get it. Ellen hasn't got divorced yet.

In case you don't know, it takes MONEY to get divorced. And it aint cheap.

Tea Lady said...

Ivery had a record for credit card fraud and postal theft before they ever got married. This one gets my vote. Sad...

shakey said...

I'm still waiting for the reveal about the actress who owes her dealer so much money she negotiated for a higher salary even though she didn't deserve one. I thought that one was Ellen, too.

Anonymous said...

Damn, I hope it isn't Ellen and her guy. I thought they were so cute together!

Brainy said...

I wanna know who updated her "personal life" section of her wikipedia page.

Ashlae said...

It's Ellen! I must say I feel bad for her. Everyone knew he was a loser but love is blind. I actually like her.

ra2006 said...

can't be Ellen Pompeo.
Ellen only recently bought a second home in Hollywood. Kristin from E! mentioned it. plus she was seen out and about happy with Chris less than 2 months ago.

Plus she is still making mega bucks since Grey's is still running.

And if that is true then he would have moved out for sure. since her house is hers, but recent pictures, saw her done fixing the house into a great shape.

trogdor said...

2 months is a long time in which to go broke. Especially if you have a lifestyle that needs the money.

That's why I stay broke.

Don't ever have to worry about going broke.

gillian said...

I thought EP had been with that guy (aka hubby!) for some time before they got hitched? How can you NOT know your longtime bf is a loser? Seems odd..

From brendalove...

...some gals will allow anything to happen as long as they have a man.

Brenda, do you happen to know how I can get in touch with these gals?

Ashlae said...

I believe Ellen knew about his past. Hell everyone else knew he went to prison for selling drugs or something. I just think in this situation, Ellen was too in love to care. As I said Love Is Blind

Mooshki said...

trogdor - LOL!!!!

Jerry, trust me, you don't want one of them. They're usually whiny, demanding, manipulative and downright mean. It ain't worth it.

MoxieintheCity said...

It's definitely Kate Walsh. Pompeo and her husband had been together for years before getting hitched. The BI says they were together "a short time." Walsh met, got engaged and got married to her husband in under s a year. Plus she does those car commercials.

irishstayc2 said...

I have to go with Kate Walsh for this one....she's was with her man for a very short time - got married very quickly and does the Cadilac spots.

and I always thought the "fake" marriage enty talked about in the other blind referred to the fake TV marriage on the show... hmmmmm

SFG said...

Our actress has so little money right now that the only way she can afford to drive a car is because the dealer is giving her one for free for promotional purposes

That would make total sense for it being Kate Walsh. Ellen Pompeo just shot a campaign for NY & Company this summer and that's sure to be a bit of a lucrative deal. But Kate did the Cadillac spots a year or two ago. She DID get a huge payday for that but it was a buyout and Cadillac has said they will never pay that much money for a celeb again. The rates they pay their commercial actors went down faster than the economy under Bush. I think Kate Walsh is it.

SFG said...

Sorry, should've added, with how much Cadillac uses her spots they would want her to be seen driving a caddy. Same reason Ciroc vodka is pissed at Diddy; he hawks for them but is photographed in clubs drinking tequila. A lot of times when one becomes a spokesperson or the main focus of a high profile campaign there is some clause saying they can only eat/drink/drive the product they are hawking, or, conversely, they aren't allowed to eat/drink/drive the company's main competitor's products.

cat said...

Does anybody have the link to the fake marriage blind item?

Stephen said...

The original blind item with the reference to the fake marriage is reposted above at 2:49PM. I always thought that the fake marriage referred to George & Callie on Grey's. I like Kate Walsh for this more than EP.

identityless said...

Isn't Kate Walsh's husband (Alex Young?) a big exec/producer of some sort? not that he couldn't be a loser or waste her money even with his title...but I'm sure he's got plenty of his own to waste too....

Eh, someone tell me to shut up.

Ashlae said...

No identityless, I think you're right. He's a producer, I'm sure he has money to spend on his own. I have no clue what Ellen's husband does for a living but I know he used to be a drug dealer. This blind implies to me that this marriage isn't fake which Kate's is. So I'm still going with Ellen and it sounds like something Chris would do. Sometimes I wonder if Ellen was the answer to the blind about a TV lead actress and lost all her money, needed to get a second job as a drug dealer on the downlow.

gillian said...

I'm witht he Kate Walsh brigade. The 'short time' stress in the post, could be a sign, but also this impression of her man as some 'hollywood exec'- who advertises themselves as that? if you are a big exec, why do you have your wife's PR make constant reference to it in everything (even on damn log lines to pap pics!). And when's the last time you've seen them two, previously glued at the hip, papped together or attending some do and mugging insanely for the cameras? Oh Kate, why oh why did you agree to a joint bank account??

Jamie said...

It is not Kate Walsh. Kate has been seen all summer with her husband. Just yesterday at Bauer Griffin, there were pics of Kate and Alex returning from vaca celebrating their wedding anniversary. He was also at the PrP DVD launch party with her last night.

Kate's husband is the president of production at 20th Century Fox. He is worth millions and doesnt need her money.

Kate has been shooting her own TV show the whole summer. Did a guest star thing on GA. Shot a movie with Paul Bettany and Dennis Quaid.In USAToday article, Cadillac themselves said she is doing more Cadillac ads for them.

Brenda said...

Do you people know anything about Ellen Pompeo at all? First she and her husband has been out together in New York right before she went back to work papz pictures to prove it. She owns many cars she has a vintage Benz and a Rover. She has 2 houses she makes 250K a WEEK.

trogdor said...

250k? a week?!

Dang.

If I made 250 K a week, I would spend 500K a week.

God bless America!

whoami said...

Kate's husband makes more than her, def Ellen Pompeo, expect the divorce announcement around November sweeps...

bionic bunny! said...

i have no guesses, but i think it's pretty easy to hide a big gambling habit, as it is with any other habit for a while.
and once married, hubby has access to wifey's funds.
it doesn't say HE'S broke.
and a marriage can be over with out divorce being filed, much less finalized. my first one was over LONG before i got the guts to go to a lawyer.

and the hollywood lifestyle is very expensive. hell, everything in california is, especially in the last couple of years.

sophie said...

wait...when was it decided that kate's mairage was a fake? did someone come come out and speak the truth. it's just i saw her on a tv interview last night and they asked her about her mairage and she was like yeah but not totally gushing about it
it does sond more like ellen though

Jamie's Girl said...

OK, first off the marriage that was over before it began IS Ellen Pompeo. It has already been revealed by Enty, so let's not rewrite history. Then he references back to this same item, that the husband has blown all the money, it has to be Ellen Pompeo. Her husband is a punk.

It is not Kate Walsh. Her husband is LOADED! Walsh met Young, a production co-president at 20th Century Fox, in February and they were engaged three months later. How broke is a Co-president of 20th Century Fox? Not really. Kate scored big time.

Jamie said...

Word "Jamie's Girl"

It has already been revealed as being Ellen Pompeo. I don't really believe in blind items, but Ellen's husband is a convicted felon who has spent time in prison for drug dealing and credit card theft/fraud. He is a known con-man, who has a history of it. Which screams LOSER!

Kate Walsh's husband is loaded! He is number 2/3 in line at 20th Century. He is over the whole production of 20th Century and was in a very posh Hollywood magazine as "One of the Most Powerful Men in Hollywood". He does not need Kate's money at all.

Kate and Alex are always seen driving three cars: Kate's Range Rover, Alex's porsche, and both their Prius. They were also pictured in June taking a private flight from LA to San Fran. HELLO Loaded!

Like I said Kate and Alex have been pictured all summer long. Going grocery shopping, out-to-eat, at the Mad Men premiere, at a charity for Animal Rescue (where Kate was quoted in Us Weekly about starting a family with Alex), at a music concert (just last wk), yesterday at LAX airport from vaca celebrating their wedding anniversary (which there was a super cute pic of Kate hugging Alex from behind while they waited for their luggage), and last night at the DVD launch for PrP, etc....

I would be more than happy to bombard this site with tons of Kate and Alex pics from this summer and all the super cute pics of them. I would be more than happy to provide the links.

Jerry said...

Jerry, trust me, you don't want one of them. They're usually whiny, demanding, manipulative and downright mean. It ain't worth it.

That's actually a major improvement over my previous bad choices.

Prudence said...

OMG. Thank you Ent for this blind.

For a couple of years I've been trying to show my friends that they haven't meet someone really stupid until they have met a Pompeo fan, bur they have always refuse to take my word for, or read the official GA boards. Something I did 2007 looking for spoilers,I am ashamed to confess.

Still, now I can direct them here. It's shorter, and as illustrative.I haven't laughed this much since the Dempeo days.

Dempeo was when they wanted Dempsey to leave is wife and kids to shack up with Pompeo, and even got hold of his home phone number and took turns in harassing his wife, and boasting about it online.

ms snarky said...

re Ellen Pompeo - here's a Defamer sighting item from August 22. So is this marriage over?

"Then, a few minutes later, ELLEN POMPEO (that's Meredith Grey to you) walked by hand-in-hand with her hubby. Super skinny and wearing gross, skin tight white jeans, white shirt with trashy sky high black heels. They were in a rush which made her look like she walks funny because she clearly couldn't handle those heels. We decided she was dressed like a Staten Island prostitute."
