Today's Blind Items - Part Two

What C list actress on a middling network comedy in a great time slot has a big problem with drugs. It isn't that she has overdosed or anything like that, but she is deeply in debt to her drug dealer who has been collecting payments lately by showing up on the set of her show and having alone time with our actress. Everyone on the set thinks the guy is her boyfriend so don't understand why she is so freaked out whenever he shows up.

hmmm someone on NBC's must see Thursday night line up or ABC's Comedy Wednesday night line up.

Middling? I hope its not the young actress on "The Middle"

PotPourri said...

I'll tell you what...if I was a producer on that show, he might show up in a ditch in the Canyon someplace. Wow, how terrible. She needs to reach out.

amazonblue said...

She's prostituting herself on the set? YIKES!!!

Karmen said...

Sweet, thanks for the extra blind, Enty!

Genesis said...

I thought of patricia heaton lol

butttt it's probably someone on Community. Not annie, the other one, britta. Or the older lady, forgot her name.

palealebrew10 said...

I'm thinking it's the blonde girl on Community who plays Britta. There's some glassiness that is going on with her eyes that really freaks me out.

Revali said...

Kaley Cuoco (sp?)
big bang theory

Ms Cool said...

What does middling mean in "middling network comedy?"

Amit! said...

I wouldn't really call Big Bang Theory a middling network comedy. It's doing pretty well for itself, isn't??? The word middling makes me think it's either Patricia Heaton or the daughter on the middle, but I like the Britta guess too. She does have that glassy eye thing going on.

Amit! said...

I just realized that three "???" makes me seem like I was being rude. I so, so didn't mean to come off that way.

L said...

Big Bang Theory is scoring higher in the ratings than 2 1/2 Men. It's the top rated show on Mondays.

Maybe someone on 3rd Rock? The sexy blonde 20-ish assistant?

Anonymous said...

Is Jane Krakowski C List? She looks like a drug user.

KellyLynn said...

I'm liking the Britta guess for this one.

Funny Girl said...

Britta seems as good a guess as any

Unknown said...

I immediately thought of Paricia Heaton of "The Middle" because of the 'middling' reference but that seems crazy - maybe the daughter on the show?

Karmen said...

Community is definitely a middling show in a great time slot (Thursdays at 8PM).

Britta, played by Gillian Jacobs, FTW. Nice job, genesis!

ballyhoo. said...

TWO blind items?!? i have no idea who any of these people are but it's still a pretty juicy one, so thanks enty!

jerryvet said...

How about Jenna Elfman? She's on CBS Mondays, and in the photos today.

Courtney said...

If it's Britta, I hope Joel McHale gets wind of this and uses his powers of awesome to kill this guy and get her help.

A Pimp Named DaveR said...

My first thought was Jane Krakowski.

As for the Community guesses: 8:00 isn't really a great timeslot. 9:00-9:30 is where the vast majority of your hits are, and "30 Rock" -- which has been getting middling ratings despite good critical acclaim -- has a hugely popular lead-in.

Barton Fink said...

@genesis, lol's!

Em said...

I thought of Busy Phillips on Cougartown (Middle age-sitcom), but I so hope it isn't her.

JW said...

I don't have a guess but I think middling might mean that it is sandwiched in between two comedies in a good time slot - so something on at 8:30 or 9 on Thursdays.

Bella said...

Ew.

Angela said...

Jane Krakowski is both an actress and a singer. I doubt somebody performing regularly on Broadway would have such a drug habit. Besides, they're shooting in New York, and the juicy stuff for EL always takes place in L.A.
The girl who plays Cerie, Katrina Bowden, is dating BJ Novak (Ryan on The Office) and I doubt anybody would mistake a drug dealer for "Little Man".

Gillian Jacobs is a great guess. "Community" is her first big part, which means little money before this. It isn't hard to suppose that she had a debt before or that she used her first pay, and some more, to order a large dose of crystal candy.

Mango said...

People can just sashay onto the set of a show?

@ Revali - Noooooo, I love Kaley Cuoco in TBBT (even though in publicity pics she is always braless and wearing a see-through shirt...)

@ jerryvet - Can't be Jenna Elfman; she belongs to the COS and their stormtroopers would prolly stomp the effen ASS of (and make disappear) anyone messing with one of their cash cows.

Revali said...

@mango - I knooooow, i so love her too... =)its just that every pic i see of her she looks half-wasted or sparked

IKnowTheSecret said...

Ummm... Rashida Jones in Parks and Recreation. Just a wild guess.

Sis said...

Oooh, I thought of Jenna Elfman too, her show is terrible and is in a great time slot, I have wondered the how and why concerning that show, her too, it is truly that bad.

TinselSass said...

Busy P is too grounded... and too aware of the tragic toll of drugs as she is godmother to Heath and Michelle's Mathilda.

She's also very cool.

Too bad whomever... get this person help people! Someone on that set knows... someone always knows!

Em said...

Good points Tinsel. Good to know because I love her!

Angela said...

RM: Rashida Jones is Quincy Jones' daughter. It would require a lot of drugs to have her in debt. Besides, she was reportedly dating Jon Favreau. Not the "Iron Man" Jon Favreau, the speechwriter for Obama.

Unknown said...

Jenna Elfman is pregnant in real life, too, so I doubt it's her (Enty would CERTAINLY have mentioned that we have what appears to be Coke Mom II on our hands.)

Sweetiebird said...

"Middling network" might mean in the middle alphabetically, so maybe a show on CBS?

Miss X said...

I think middling network means the network isn't doing so well. So not a CBS show, because aren't there comedies at the top? This makes me think NBC, whose comedies are struggling.

Jenna Elfman is married and pregnant in real life. And Patricia Heaton -- I know y'all love a hypocrite, but no way is this her.

So I'll go with a girl on Community. *sigh* I had such hopes for that show and find it unwatchable.

B626 said...

Ms. Heaton is also married but is that a big deal in H-Wood? She does look skinnier than the Raymond years

childeroland said...

I think middling network comedy just means a show doing so-so ratings in a great time slot. I don't follow sitcoms, but isn't 'The Middle' supposed to be doing really well? How about 'Modern Family'?

MCH said...

I was going to say Julie Bowen from Modern Family but I think she is married with kids. Wouldn't your co-workers know that info?

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Modern Family has a Golden Globe nomination after half a season. I think it's doing better than "middling." Julie Bowen has a spouse and 3 kids, she had twins earlier this year.

I'm on board with blonde chick on Community. It's the lead-in to The Office, thus rendering the time slot "great."

Domesmita said...

It's definitely Gillian Jacobs. No doubt, my friend works for a talent agency in LA and told me as much a few months ago. He didn't use her name, but mentioned a new show on NBC.

khush said...

well evry n z predctng no bdy thinks 2 ask the gal

sunnyside1213 said...

I think the "boyfriend" reference is really funny. Does she not have a boyfriend in real life?

Daveb said...

I was unfamiliar with Gillian Jacobs and looked her up on IMDB. I noticed she has four films completed or in post production. I doubt that she would have gotten that many roles if she had a bad drug problem. From the wording of the blind the actress seems to be in more trouble over debt than over drug usage.

GauchoGirl said...

I like Katrina Bowden from 30 Rock for this blind, but didn't realize she was dating BJ Novak until I read it in one of the comments above. I saw her two years ago at an event and she was easily 20 pounds heavier than her current weight. I'd like to credit her weight loss to exercise, but I don't think that's the case.
