Blind Items Revealed

August 1, 2008

#1 - This sister singing duo from a foreign country were performing a show in Los Angeles one time and as usual it was completely sold out. Not a huge place, and as a result there were lots of people who were sent away without getting in. Well, there was a group of about ten girls who were not going to go anywhere and they decided they would at least sit outside the place in the hopes they could hear a few notes at least. Well somehow that news made it to the two wingers and they decided to take the entire group of girls and brought them backstage and let them watch the entire show from the the side of the stage. After the show they posed for photos, signed autographs and gave away practically anything that was giveable.

#2 - This former A list television actor on a very huge super sized hit network comedy and now someone who is trying to find some other identity other than that character either in television or film makes sure that he gives blood every two months like clockwork. He has been doing this now for almost ten years all with no fanfare or attention.

#3 - Wow this actress is the epitome of a B/C lister. Everyone knows her because she has had some great roles on some great television shows and some films. Everytime she gets her own series, it doesn't do so well, but she is incredibly well liked. Right now she is filming a remake/sequel to one of my favorite films of all time from the 70's. I'm cheesy that way. Anyway, when she is in LA, she volunteers at an after school program which helps kids with their homework and to give them adult guidance they may not get at home. When she is filming in a different city, she calls around and tries to do the same thing at other schools on a temporary basis.

#4 - Is this actor A list? Interesting question. He was an A list action film star and then kept giving it all away. Now he is probably still considered A list by definition, but probably more a B. Well in the past several years, this actor has without any publicity given away about $250,000 to various SPCA charities and other pet organizations. Turns out the guy everyone always thinks is a jerk is actually a pretty nice guy.

#1 -The Veronicas
#2-Matt LeBlanc
#3-Carla Gugino
#4-Vin Diesel

icywench said...

These kindness reveals are making me all warm and fuzzy! Or is it the champagne? Doesn't matter because it's nice to know that there are some celebrities that aren't complete asses.

ms snarky said...

I know. I always want to find a reason to like Matt, but I never can quite get there. good for him. I wonder what his blood type is?

Mexi said...

Just another reason for me to love vin

Ms. said...

Anyone who gives $$ to animal charities is A1 in my book.

cajun cutie said...

Vin Diesel that is great. Look at him in a different light now. He is not A list anymore. More like B+ now.

farmgirl said...

I love Carla.
I still think I can't like Vin Diesel. Sorry.
And that pic of Affleck on the right is skeeving me out.

ms snarky said...

I'm liking the Veronicas. talk about making fans for life.

Magenta said...

I kind of guessed that #4 was Vin Diesel from the first sentence. It's sweet of all of them.

ms snarky said...

off topic - TMZ was implying that the Ben/Jen pup is about to pop

Damned Fallacy said...

I absolutely love seeing kindnesses revealed! I always adored Carla Gugino - go Mama Cortez!

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Great ones!

heather said...

so i guess ben aflaaaaack is not the answer for every blind? darn....that was my new year's wish. and yes, that picture is totally skeeving everyone out (except ben)

Margaret said...

I wouldn't have gotten Vin D. in a million years. Good one.

cajun cutie said...

That photo of Ben looks like Luke Perry in his 90210 heyday.

Geebz said...

Yay Vin D. I never thought he was a jerk. I honestly see kindness in his eyes. What a sweet heart.

Ben looks like he should be on that hcwdb site. (HotChicksWithD-Bags)

wineaux said...

geebz - that site is priceless! luvz it.

Idiot Watcher said...

How much do I love Vin now? That is seriously the best thing I've heard in a while. Go him. Big kisses.

BlahFrickinBlah said...

so sweet. <3

Mooshki said...

Awww, how sweet! I love the kindnesses so much!

Ms. Fullwood said...

I have always loved Matt..and now I love Vin!

abigail7881 said...

Is that Ben on the right underneath where it says "email"? If it is, it does not look like him. Maybe a much younger him...

Anonymous said...

Glad we're getting the kindnesses revealed. I love Matt, Carla and Vin.

selenakyle said...

Good for all of them!

I love the jackass & kindness reveals so I can either support or snub the subjests' various projects.

Have always liked Vin.

mabel said...

I don't understand the Vin Diesel hate. He was really good in Boiler Room and he always seems like such a nice guy. So glad this blind proves it.

Jasmine said...

spca? what a sweetie! i love when people give to animals like that. and matt giving blood is a huge deal. only 5% of people give blood and that supplies the rest of us when we need it, that is putting you money where your mouth is so to speak. i adore them now.

pomme said...

whaou! great people! i love them now!

trashtalker said...

I guessed Vin! Whee!

Simone said...

These are all wonderful acts of kindness, and like Matt LeBlanc, I believe in donating blood too. But I'm really impressed with Vin's contributions to the SPCA. We have to care about animals too.

nicole said...

Vin Diesel didn't just do that out of the goodness of his heart. A few years before his donations were made, his dog (Rottweiler?) attacked someone, leaving permanent damage.
