Today's Blind Items


A couple of things first. I have received many many e-mails about the blind item on another site which implies it is Tom and Katie. The picture above was Tom and Katie Saturday night in Washington DC. Plus, there are some other things wrong with the blind item if it were really Tom and Katie.

Now, as for yesterday's item, it will definitely be revealed on July 4th. So, you don't have to wait too long.

Now for today. Today is nothing juicy or earth shaking but it cracks me up so thought I would share it. I almost didn't because there have been a lot of stories recently about actors and their lifts, but this one is too good to pass up because it's so funny. This C list actor on a very good day, and realistically a D who used to be a B was on one of the most popular television comedies of all time. Not necessarily by numbers, but it was not the fault of the show. Since the show went of the air he has done a little of this and a little of that. The other night he went over to a friend's house. This friend, like many people makes people remove their shoes when they enter the house. She told our actor that he needed to take off his shoes. He threw a fit right there in the doorway and complained for a good five minutes before finally taking off his shoes and dropping about four inches in height. The laughs in the place weren't that loud. Well, not loud enough for a neighbor to hear anyway. No one would have even noticed if he hadn't thrown the fit. But because he did everyone was staring at him.

Jason Bateman?

MontanaMarriott said...

Well what's the TomKat blind Item?
I rather hear about that one this this one???
lol

No clue on this BI yet...

jagerlilly said...

MontanaMarriott - the TomKat BI is over on blindgossip.com

jagerlilly said...

Enty totally busted it though. It's not them.

Mooshki said...

"...it will definitely be revealed on July 4th."

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ !!!

jagerlilly said...

Hmmm...Bud Bundy for the lift blind?

Bodie said...

Jason Alexander from Seinfeld?

lutefisk said...

Oh, July 4th isn't too far off....

Miranda said...

I LOVE the reveal days! I sit at home and frantically refresh my screen every 15 minutes. Really, it's the most exciting web event of the year.

Yes, I AM this pathetic in real life too.

Bryn said...

jagerlilly - where does Ent "totally bust" the TomKat BI? He says there are some things wrong with the item if it IS about Tom & Katie, but he doesn't say what. Where does he say it's NOT them?

A Pimp Named DaveR said...

I'm guessing Jason Alexander.

jax said...

wilmer?

jw12 said...

Fez

Oryx said...

love the wilmer guess. jax, you clever girl.

Mooshki said...

"one of the most popular television comedies of all time. Not necessarily by numbers"

Take that, people who said Castle couldn't be the answer from yesterday! Sorry, couldn't help myself, I'm a bitch. :)

Jax, awesome guess.

Carrie S. said...

I really hope it's not someone from Arrested Development, though it kind of sounds like it could be. Maybe Tony Hale or David Cross?

jw12 said...

Miranda- I'm right there with you on reveal day!!

littlemanwhatnow said...

i was in an elevator with tony hale and he is tall

david cross is not tall but i hear he is really nice. maybe michael cera?

califblondy said...

I've been reading the Tom/Katie crap and while I wish like hell it was true, I just can't see her serving him with "contract dissolution" docs.

WBotW said...

In regards to the supposed TomKat blind... rather interesting that in this post Enty brings it up, casts doubt on whether or not it's them, and has that particular picture posted. I find this interesting due to this portion of the blind:
"You will still see them together, albeit much less frequently, and they will continue to be very civil towards each other. They will both have smiles plastered on their faces, but you will know that hers is really just a smirk, and he is absolutely seething inside over having lost control of the situation."

I still think it's TomKat.

Rocket Queen said...

Yeah, I agree with TomKat for this. The blind is so obvious and stated so boldly that the writer must be confident it will all be out in a little while. And it will be fun :)

Nature Girl said...

Oh I hope so much that the BlindGossip blind is in fact Tom & Katie.

I hope that she was initially star struck etc and got herself way in over her head before she realized what she had gotten herself into. And, by then, she had no real choice but to play by the rules. I hope THAT's why she's looked so miserable for the last few years. 'Cause she was cute and spunky before TC. Hard to imagine now...

As for Enty's short-man blind, I'd like to think its Wilmer.

K said...

Tony Danza?

And who else knew that Wilmer was the voice of Handy Manny? It blew my mind when I found that out.

Jungle007 said...

I'm with Jax. Wilmer Valderamma ftw. Can sooooo see him doing that :)

janele said...

Where is Cal Lightman (of Lie to Me) to analyze TomKat's facial expressions when we need him?!?

And in response to someone upthread who can't believe that Katie would file a dissolution of contract vs. dissolution of marriage (Enty I hope you explain this to us if the BI is true!): Don't forget that Katie's dad is a divorce lawyer, too. The other site alleges that Katie is using Nicole Kidman's lawyer, but that could be in case Katie's dad isn't well-versed in California divorce laws.

As for Enty's BI, I will guess Kelsey Grammer.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

I'd say Katie is smirking in that pic.

nancer said...

i think because of the description of the show---one of the funniest of all time but not good ratings---this can't be kelsey grammer. his show was very popular. sounds like a perfect description of 'arrested development' though.

AnonMom said...

I know, Handy Manny. Little boys LOOOOOOOOOOOVE that show. LOOOOOOOVE.

My initial guess was Sean Hayes, but I think Wilmer is a better guess.

nancer said...

oh, i also don't think grammer is C list 'on a good day.' but i don't think this is bateman either---he's definitely not C list.

Surly_Secretary said...

Janele, regarding: "Katie would file a dissolution of contract vs. dissolution of marriage" the other site said it was to avoid going to court because it would reflect badly on both of them. I choose to believe that other site that it IS Tom and Katie.

maggiemei said...

How about Dave Foley from Newsradio?

I hate to think he would be this douchey, but he is pretty short, and Newsradio was not the most watched show. But it is getting more popular now that it is out on DVD.

Someone please refute this, cause I love me some Kids in the Hall!

sunnyside1213 said...

The dissolution of a contract is its rescission by the parties themselves or by a court that nullifies its binding force and reinstates each party to his or her original position prior to the contract.

Rescission - The right of an individual involved within a contract to return to the identical state as before they entered into the agreement, due to courts not recognizing the contract as legally binding.

Lisa (original) said...

If the BI is the one from the Daily Mirror about some guy getting caught with his pants down, I'll be delighted if it's someone I've actually heard of :-)

SFG said...

Does anyone know anything about Blind Gossip? I've heard that they just 100% make up their stuff and there's not a bit of most items based in truth. I know the tabs, maybe Enty even, exaggerate but I don't think they totally make these blinds up. Anyone know?

Bryn said...

I'm on board with the Bud Bundy guess(David Faustino). He's short - is C-D, used to be B when Married With Children was hugely popular. MWC was actually groundbreaking in it's day. Has done little since the show went off the air. I'll buy it.

Derreck said...

why not Frankie Muniz?

Malcolm in the Middle was very popular but FOX loved to screw with its time and dropped that show all ove the place before they sent it to Hell on Friday.

Plus, he is a short dude.

Ms.Leigh said...

david spade? is he considered d list? what about seth green? tho i can't think of any comedies he's done besides robot chicken.

hmm...

Pookie said...

i'm w/ cindy and the jason bateman guess. he was my first thought too.

califblondy said...

Janele, it's not that I can't believed she filed for diss of contract versus diss of marriage, I just can't believe she had in her to stand up to him in any capacity. I still hope it's her no matter what. I also read where they may not be legally married, which would also explain the diss of contract. For anybody who hasn't read these blinds, they are over-the-top with Katie and Tom hints.

I saw the picture Enty posted above before I read the blinds and the first thing I thought was Tom looks scared through that fake smile. Katie is smirking and also seems to be standing taller than usual above him? Remember what Nicole told David Letterman right after her separation from Tom?

WBotW said...

I can wear heels now :D

Catherine said...

Def not Tony Hale. He's not only tall, he's way too nice to throw a shitfit in someone's house!

Cooper's Mom said...

I thought that Katie looked much more radiant in the pic above, alot more like her old self, she's towering over him and certainly looks to be smirking, for sure.

I sincerely hope it is her, but jsut to throw this out there - what if it is Jen Lopez & that skeleton she's married to?

thoughts?

shakey said...

Could that other BI be JLo and Skeletor?

This one - I have no clue.

Ent - thank you in advance for that juicy reveal!

Mooshki said...

Jason Bateman is a nice, solid B-lister all the way.

Miss X said...

Hmmm, so Enty doesn't think this is Tom and Katie? http://blindgossip.com/index.php/2009/05/12/she-has-finally-pulled-the-chip-out-of-her-head/#more-8355 It sounds like them, she's smirking in the pic.

As for this BI, definitely someone from AD. It was critically acclaimed but didn't get the ratings it should have gotten.

Cheryl said...

not david cross. he's all cargo shorts and sneakers--hard to pull off lifts when you're wearing shorts. also, not terribly vain.

Mooshki said...

Also, as far as I know, David Cross is still dating Enty's BFF, Amber Tamblyn. She'd kick his butt if he said anything mean about him. :)

bionic bunny! said...

speaking of blind items, a few months ago, i asked which commenters were actually using pictures of their own bunnies as thier avis. oddly i was ignored.
i had other reasons for asking at the time, now i have other reasons.

anybody have objections to fessing up to real vs. internet?
mine have always been my own. heaven knows, i have enough.

that was totally off track, but since i'm very confused about this blind, i figured, what the hell.

Jamie's Girl said...

I always think Matt Damon for the short dweebs. He's only 5'5", but swears he is like 5" 9.

SFG, I've never heard anything about Blind Gossip, but I've always found them suspicious myself. Some of the "original" blinds seem to be a reworded version of things I've read elsewhere, and others seem to be stuff that people have often speculated about or hoped for -- like this Tom/Katie one -- and you have to wonder if someone just thought "huh, this seems possible" and then wrote it out like it was a fact. So I second the question, does anyone know how trustworthy BlindGossip.com is? (They get a lot of the blinds from other sites, with credit, so it's still a good collection to read through -- it's the ones that say the "source" is BlindGossip that I wonder about.)

Elizabeth said...

For this BI, David Faustino from Married with Children? BlindGossip is a fun blog, and even though I have only been reading them a few months, their own BIs are good and usually pretty original. I've seen quite of few of them pan out to be real. As far as originality is concerned, BG had an item a few days ago about a short actor who didn't want to remove his shoes at the airport because of lifts. Enty ran a similar item today. Does that mean Enty is copying BG? No, I think it is more likely that after a while, all gossip starts to sound alike...

Elizabeth said...

Oh, and also, if it wasn't for BlindGossip, I would have never discovered Enty. So for that alone, it was worth it!

mulder said...

Matt LeBlanc. It's no secret David Faustino and David Spade are short.

Cheryl said...

Hey, the other Cheryl who posted is not me. Anyway, it's not David Faustino. I met him and he is TINY and does not wear lifts. He used to come in to a restaurant where I was the hostess. I'm 4'11" and he is about 5'2, maybe 5'3".

I'm on board the Wilmer train (and Handy Manny is a Spanglish ripoff of Bob the Builder.)

A Pimp Named DaveR said...

Just a bit of clarification -- prenups are contracts between the marrying parties. Therefore, if you, as a spouse, have a prenup that you want to unilaterally challenge in some way, you'd file a contract suit.

In the Katie-Tom case, if Katie were to file for divorce FIRST, then whatever prenup is in place would control (unless it's unconscionable). If you're trying to avoid the terms of the prenup, you'd file on the prenup. (The dissolution vs. recission issue is a technical one that's not really worth discussing.)

linnea said...

Bunny - I seem to have missed this whole discussion about avatar pics. Where did it originate?

Jill said...

Throwing another name out there - French Stewart, "3rd Rock from the Sun." Maybe he started wearing lifts to make his height a little closer to Kristen Johnston and John Lithgow, and then just stuck with them when the show ended?

Katie said...

I thought Cruise's salaried wives got ten-year contracts. How long have these two been together?

P.S. Bionic Bunny, your little avatar bunny is very cute!

Uncle Scoopy said...

Sounds like Henry Winkler

Karmen said...

Not Matt LeBlanc. Friends did well in numbers. Same thing with the Fonz. Happy Days did well in ratings, so I don't think this is Henry Winkler.

maggiemei - I don't think it's Dave Foley. News Radio wasn't "one of the most popular television comedies of all time". I think our kid in the hall is safe.

The description or the show fits Arrested Development perfectly, but Jason Bateman is definitely not D list. And I don't see that description fitting anyone else on that show. Maybe it's cause I love that show too much.

My money's on David Faustino from Married With Children, which was a very popular show but did absolutely horrible in ratings. He's only 5'3".
Bud Bundy ftw.


As for the BlindGossip BI, I wish it were TomKat, but who knows.

Mooshki said...

Linnea, someone stole one of Bunny's bunnies! I don't remember when it started.

Mooshki said...

Oh, and I don't think she'd have minded, but it was linked to some stalkerish weirdness. Be careful about your online identities, there are plenty of weirdos out there. :)

Grace said...

The blind item might be Jada Pinkett and Will Smith -- it has been talked about for years about "his special relationship with another high-profile man."

This is what Will Smith said in 2008:

"Our perspective is, you don't avoid what's natural and you're going to be attracted to people." he says.

"And if it came down to it, then one would say to the other: 'Look, I need to have sex with somebody. Now, I'm not going to if you don't approve of it'."

The 39-year-old star explains that the couple's open policy has been in place from day one of their 10-year marriage.

"In our marriage vows, we didn't say 'forsaking all others'. We said 'you will never hear I did something afterwards'. Because if that happens the relationship is destroyed."

Rocket Queen said...

Ted C seems to be giving the answers to this blind and the one about the guy seeing his sometimes-mistress at the correspondent's dinner today:

1st. Blind items come from people in the know or who think they're in the know. They might be from the water kid at a restaurant or the maid at a hotel or it can be from Sylvia who is the friend of the friend of someones hairdresser. (that's how I know JT is bi, very much loved his son and is completely incapacitated by his death. Only in my case its the friend of the masseuse.) They sometimes even come from other celebs. They're gossip and have been stretched, twisted and misquoted. Some of them are outright lies or a complete misunderstanding but, they're tons of fun!
2nd. The blind cant be about TC an KH unless it was written a year ago. They've been separated since about when she went to NYC without him. Another tid bit, TC isnt gay, he's bi. When he jumped the couch, he meant it. He thought he was so in love with Katie that she was all he would ever need. Once the honeymoon was over, he went back to his bi, selfish, attention whoring ways and she went her own ways.

Karmen said...

OK, so when I said Married with Children didn't get good ratings, that was just Wikipedia reporting the last three season. It was one of the longest sitcoms to ever run on Fox. Had to be good in the ratings if it lasted that long.

This description just screams someone from Arrested Development. I don't wanna guess, cause that'll just make me sad.

Emily said...

Jared Leto??
