Mr. X Blind Items #6

What recently deceased actor-comic and Oscar winner/nominee once had sex with an actress/comic whom he considered one of his closet friends early on [think early '70s] in both their careers? They decided to remain just that after that one night stand gone wrong.

FearN said...

That's what I was thinking as well.

Simon said...

@derek, i think you got it!

StewMcG said...

I thought the Robin/Gilda thing was pretty common knowledge? Then again, this is a Mr. X blind item...

derek harvey said...

what a dumb blind item day though---better get back to doing my eyebrows!

rosie riveter said...

Oh gross. Robin and JOAN?
I did NOT see that coming. Yucky

Tricia S said...

Joan rivers wasn't an actress coming up..she's done cameos later in her career

Tricia S said...

Exactly..but I don't think it's that common knowledge either..he spoke of it after she passed

Are Mr X and E's proofreader "closet friends"?

StewMcG said...

I don't think this is Joan. It says "early on in both their careers" and specifically references the early '70s. Joan's stand-up career was already in full swing. Plus she was married with a young child at that time. (Not saying she couldn't have been cheating but I imagine it would have been difficult.)

In addition, she wasn't really an actress at that point. (Check out her IMDB page. She had 6 credits at that time frame and all of them were "one time only" type credits.)

VIPblonde said...

Yeah, what's a closet friend?

Count Jerkula said...

Frosty said...

Williams and...Jane Curtain, just to be different

Leisa Wooten said...

You know what? Fuck you, Enty. Too soon.

Red said...

I'm fairly certain it's Robin Williams & Gilda Radner.

KMS from down under said...

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

KMS from down under said...

Or was it that they where both comedians that just kept making jokes killing any sexy time.

rosie riveter said...

Erp. WHOOPIE?? oh my, this is getting grosser and grosser

sandybrook said...

Robin and Jane Curtin.

Meghan said...

*fingers in ears* lalalalalalalalalalalala


TOO SOON, ENTY. I don't want any Robin Williams blinds yet!!

Lalalalalalalalalalalala

Count Jerkula said...

He was probably too coked up to get wood.

Jessica Larson said...

Robin & Whopi

witwritergirl said...

Me too!

fouxdafafa said...

Yes, it's gotta be Whoopi. She is an Oscar winner. Gilda and Joan have never been nominated.

figgy said...

Way too soon for RW blinds, Enty.

sugarbread maker said...

Joan is clearly the Michael Jackson there right? ?

sugarbread maker said...

Only the guy was the Oscar winner nominee.

Jonathan Andrew Sheen said...

For the "too soon" crowd, honestly, what's bad here? A guy had sex once with someone he liked, and both realized they didn't want to do that again. No harm, no foul, no nastiness or poor conduct. There's nothing here that reflects badly on him in any way.

How long after someone passes away are we supposed to think they've never had sex, and why?

Meghan said...

@Jonathan - mine was mostly tongue in cheek ;)

It feels wrong to dissect gossip over the dead, no matter who it is or what the topic. But that's just me.

Sherry said...

I don't think this is too soon. It's not damning in fact it paints him in a very sweet light. How many of us have had a one night stand and then avoided the other person out of embarrassment? They agreed it was one time only, let's not let it get in the way of being friends. I think that's very noble AND respectful.

And yes it could very well be Whoopi..I like Jane Curtain for it better though.

The day we stop talking about someone is the day they're truly dead.

PamMo said...

Robin and Roseanne.

Jay Tea said...

Just to be different... Robin Williams and Fran Drescher. They did a couple of movies together in the 80s, after all...

B. Profane said...

Radner lived in Toronto until she was hired for SNL in '75. If they hooked up it would have been later in the 70's.

Williams was at Julliard and then in SF getting started doing stand-up in the early 70's. This sounds like a woman who came out of the SF comedy scene.

Nora Dunn.

Penny Marshall.

Sugar, that's hilarious!
