Today's Blind Items- Quick And Dirty

#1 - Some very important members of her family never wrote or called to offer condolences to this A list mostly movie actress.

#2- This permanent A+ list singer says her ex-husband took her virginity by raping her.

#3 - Old Hollywood- This former B+ list mostly movie actor once starred in one of the most famous movies of all-time was killed. A man was convicted of the crime, but according to the tabloid selling former lover of a deceased A list celebrity it was the A lister who killed the actor after he threatened to go public with their gay love affair if money was not forthcoming.

Scarlett Drawl said...

1) Kidman-her children w/Cruise
2) Carey?

MontanaMarriott said...

Sorry I meant REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE

Tricia S said...

Good one!

MontanaMarriott said...

2. Babs and Elliot Gould

Simon said...

celine dion

MontanaMarriott said...

3. A list celebrity Liberace and Tabloid seller Scott Thornton?

Tricia S said...

Was thinking Bob Crane for 3

Simon said...

i take it back. says ex husband not husband...

msgirl said...

Montana, yeah I got confused there about Mineo! What a great guess.

I immediately thought Kidman for 1 but couldn't think who didn't call her. Great guess about the kids.

sandybrook said...

Sal Mineo sounds
right after reading his wikipedia. He was one of the first actors to acknowledge he was gay and was murdered in an alley by a pizza delivery guy.

MontanaMarriott said...

OH wait
2. TINA TURNER and Ike EAT THE CAKE ANNA MAE Turner

Shelly Shell said...

1-Nichole & her adopted kids, never saw pics or heard of them being in AU.

2-Whoa, I think Mimi was too old when she met Tommy, I like the Babs & Gould guess, she married him when she was 21 in 1963.

3-I have to think about this onw.

Shelly Shell said...

Oh, Ike & Tina is a good guess.

Robert said...

Sal Mineo was openly gay before he was murdered. As for Bob Crane? Only if you think "The Wicked Dreams of Paula Schultz" counts as one of the most famous movies of all time....

MISCH said...

1- Julia Roberts
3- Sal Minio Rebel Without A Cause

Seven of Eleven said...

LadyH for the win with Mariah. That douchebag Tommy Mottola wrote that he was wrong to get involved with Mariah, but said he wasn't controlling and she asked him to marry her. Right, one of the most powerful men in the music industry, a 44 year old man, is helpless against the vanilla perfume wiles of a 19 yo backup singer.

Tricia S said...

@ robert I didn't finish sentence because it's clearly mineo...
Crane was mostly a TV which is why it didn't work...but now I have urge to seet this "wicked Dreams " movie

Janzy75 said...

#3 - It doesn't say the A-Lister was ever "out" so maybe Paul Newman and Sal Mineo? I read that biography of Paul and according to that the two had an affair.

Kno Won Uno said...

Pfft.
2) Loretta Lynne

Cheryl said...

Definitely Sal Mineo, but who is the deceased closeted A list actor. I've seen pictures of Sal Mineo at a drag party with Jack Lemmon, but cross-dressing was a popular semi-secret thing among certain groups of stars.

Kno Won Uno said...

(Except they're not divorced)
Pfft on me.

Dena said...

I think you're right!

Jade did said...

My immediate first thought.

Basil said...

1 Kidman

2 I think Tina wrote about this in her autobiography, but can't remember for sure.

3. Mineo, not sure who the a lister is, but I like the Liberace guess. It would not surprise me if he knew people who could do such a thing.

Lil P said...

#1 sounds like Kidman but isn't that family tight? They would have been at the funeral. How about Julia Roberts step sister - throwing shade at Eric and Emma maybe? Their excuse could have been well we didn't think you were that close when she was alive?

car54 said...

maybe the relatives who didn't contact Nicole were her Cruise kids.

cornflowerbluezz said...

I don't know if this helps with figuring out #3, but Nick Adams (RWAC, Picnic) ran in the same circles as James Dean & (I think) Sal Mineo. Adams was married w/kids, but he struggled with a lot of demons.

I'm NOT saying Nick Adams is an answer. Just use him as a clue to the high-powered actors he attached himself to.

Cheryl said...

Janzy75-Paul Newman is an interesting guess. I'm going to go even more macho and guess his rival Steve McQueen. There are nude modeling pix of him that look a bit suspicious and he would have even more to lose that Paul Newman if he were thought of as anything less than manly. It might explain their feud.

CoBe said...

Paul Newman and Sal Mineo worked together. Newman and James Dean were reportedly lovers, but who knows.

trainrides said...

@Lady I'm on board the Kidman and her adopted children with Cruise.

MontanaMarriott said...

Liberace was a Vegas staple. Vegas was run by the mob. I could see Liberace asking for help from his mob bosses who would have hired a hit man to make sure their number one attraction remained a box office success.

spacecowboy78 said...

I think an important distinction for # 3 is that the A lister is called a celebrity, not actor. Enty usually always makes this distinction. Liberace maybe, though again, he'd typically be called entertainer or singer. How 'bout Merv Griffin?

Renoblondee said...

Yep, Kidman for 1 and Mariah for 2. Didn't she even say she was a virgin till marriage?

Dexamyl said...

Both Liberace and Rock Hudson have tabloid selling exes. Hudson's died of lung cancer recently I think. Marc someone.

maxxy said...

I like Nicole for 1 and Tina for 2 guesses.

I'm having a hard time with the Sal Mineo guess though. Everything I've read about him seems to indicate he was an unassuming, likeable guy. I just can't imagine him turning into an extortionist blackmailer. His acting career was rebounding at the time of his death, and multiple prison guards stated they overheard the pizza delivery man admitting to the stabbing. It's also possible the tabloid selling former lover of that A list celebrity is making this up.

Sherry said...

#1- First thought was Julia Roberts but upon further reflection sounds like Kidman

#2- Mariah

#3- Sal Mineo is an excellent guess but again who was the "celebrity" that actually did it? I'm having a hard time translating that BTW..

Zach said...

Sal Mineo and Brando? But Brando was more open about his homosexual experiences...

KK said...

I read #2 as Perry. She used to be a good christian and Brand is a jerk

veee said...

So George Chakiris (spelling?) as the A lister?

Trilby said...

Steve McQueen is who I'm thinking, too. Very homphobic in public, bisexual in private.

Unknown said...

I think the Kidman relatives might be skeeved out because her father was named in a pedophile ring and family probably are not unhappy Father dearest died before humiliating the entire clan with a public trial.

Mimi. Sad.

Sal Mineo is a great guess. I wouldn't count on anything someone admits to in prison, being a killer is a cache and a warning that if you mess with someone they may kill you too. Not as winning an endorsement of guilt as I would like. Merv would fit for the person with the most to lose, and he did live with Eva Gabor who admitted at one point she was just his beard. Very well paid beard. Sal's neighborhood was nice and still is, so a random guy working delivering pizza's never really fit well into the why murder some random in a street crime while you were working. Wouldn't you rob the people you knew were going to have money, on the delivery route, if that's what you were really after? I can buy that but an extortion of some sorts gone wrong - not necessarily even blackmail per se, but give me... or I'll... can be even more frightening to people with secrets than asking for an actual amount of money. And apparently more deadly.

Humor Me said...

#3 - Sal Mineo with James Dean as the culprit. James was bi, but not ready to go public. Please don't ask where I read this -

Trilby said...

But otoh, tabloid-selling ex sure sounds like Thorsen, which makes it likely to be Liberace. But Thorsen got around, I was just reading yesterday about his tangential involvement in the background to the "Wonderland" Murders.

Trilby said...

Dean died almost 2 decades before Mineo was murdered.

alp102000 said...

I don't think #2 is Mimi. I know someone who knows someone who went to HS with her. Apparently, she was a total slut and was never in school.

I think #1 is Kidman (with her kids with Cruise not offering condolences), #2 is Ike and Tina, #3 Mineo/Liberace.

auntliddy said...

Train, that wld be so sad and disgraceful.

auntliddy said...

Holy shit, i did not know this about kidmans father!!! Google it; it very bad and sick and sadistic. ( think hunting naked drugged children). Holy shit again. Wow. If true of course.

FrenchGirl said...

1/Her adopted kids to Kidman
2/ mariah
3/

Tina Mallette said...

Thing is just because Dr. Kidman is dead doesn't mean that scandal is going away since he is just one of a ring of alleged pedophiles but one could see some of the high and mighty relatives might distance themselves or they have first hand knowledge perhaps they should be sharing with investigators.

Seven of Eleven said...

@auntliddy, I highly doubt it's true. If you read the original article, the person also claims to be "Barnett, a whistleblower on the mind-controlling Ninth Circle Satanic Cult operated by Nazis and the CIA" and says he "fled to Singapore to escape the pedophilia charges" when in fact his other daughter lives in Singapore and he was visiting his grandchildren on school holidays. Oh, and she's been the victim of mind control since she was three.

File this under MALARKY.

Sherry said...

Trilby...Excellent catch. So Sal died in 1976. Who would be our suspects then? I think it would be a younger married man (although I still don't understand who did what..Someone help a girl here!!!)

Topper Madison said...

Oh for the love of Pete...Paul Newman was NOT a murderer. He was too busy making hundreds of millions of dollars for thousands of charities via salad dressing sales, racing cars, pranking Robert Redford, and building camps for sick kids.

AKM said...

#2 is not Tina Turner. She had her first child at the age of 18 with a saxophone player, and I don't think she'd even met Ike yet at that point. I have her book, so if I think of it, I'll check tonight. But I'm about 99% sure she was NOT a virgin when she met him.

ESIer said...

#2 is Mariah. Her sister admitted Mariah was a virgin when she married Tommy, and I read an interview Mariah gave where she said her honeymoon was horrible, and, in her words, "no one saw me running down the beach, crying." Also, her mom allowed her to travel to NYC a lot of the time and stay up all night working with musicians on her music, which is why she missed so much school.

AKM said...

From Wikipedia, which got the info from her book:

"Turner has two sons. Her first, Raymond Craig, was born in 1958 when Turner was eighteen. Craig was the child of Kings of Rhythm saxophonist Raymond Hill. Her second, Ronald, was born in October 1960. Ronald was Turner's only child with Ike Turner.

"The early relationship between Tina and Ike was friendly and "like siblings". In late 1958, Tina moved in Ike's home at East St. Louis. During that period, Ike began training Tina with her voice. Neither of them felt much attraction for the other with Tina thinking Ike was not the "ideal-looking man" while Ike dismissed Tina as "too skinny", with Tina stating Ike favored more curvaceous women. Ike was still married to Lorraine Taylor during this period. Late in 1959, Ike and Lorraine separated and shortly afterwards, Tina and Ike engaged in a sexual relationship, much to Tina's chagrin. Ike also felt guilt in the relationship, stating later that having sex with Tina "felt like I had screwed my sister or something". The couple married in Tijuana in 1962."

Even if their initial sexual relationship was "much to Tina's chagrin," that doesn't mean rape. (Guilt over Lorraine, more likely?) Ike DID rape her later after they were married, but I don't think she mentioned rape in the book regarding their early time together, and she was certainly not a virgin at that point because she'd already had a baby by his saxophone player.

Tina pretty much told it all, so if he took her virginity via rape, she would have said so.

Not Tina.

AKM said...

I think #2 is Mariah as well.

Hadn't heard that one, thanks Trilby. Off to google....

doodoolemonque said...

Trilby...don't tell me where you read that....

auntliddy said...

7-11--thanks for alternative info. Greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

I wouldn't believe a word Mariah Carey days; unless she says I'm a fat, drunk, crazy and soon to be vey vindictive SEE U NEXT TUESDAY.

(Sorry @Derek. But even U prob agree she'll say what ever makes her look good at the time- truth or prob not. )

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

pugluv said...

I know several people who went to HS with Maria and she was no virgin...reportedly dated a local mafia wanna be. Also did not get along with the black girls, would make fun of them.

Scott Thorson, Liberace's lover, has turned into a notorious mythomaniac. The guy is broke, a drug addict, and he has cancer. He claims now he was also Michael Jacksons's lover.
So, he's not the most solid source.
The film took his story, but tried to be more grounded in reality removing the traces of BS Thorson put in the book.

Sean said...

#2 is not Mariah. She used to turn tricks with her sister before snaring the big one.

[2] Mariah talking about Tommy Mottola? [1] There was some talk about Nicole Kidman's deceased father, may he rest in peace.

Old Hollywood blinds are really something. They would never have survived today.

theefamousperson said...

I f I'm not mistaken, #3 is a story arc of the craze-mazing novel American Tabloid. That book pretty much lays out the entire seedy underbelly of the late 50's and 60's. The trilogy continues through the 70's but I haven't made it past book 2 (The Cold Six Thousand) because it was so grotesque and horrifying, but really had me rapt. Anyway James Ellroy-- great master of genre fiction, as well as actual history detective. American Tabloid's def worth a read if you're into salacious celebrity gossip (which, I think we can agree, we all are:).

pumpywhiff said...

Sal Mineo/Dennis Hopper.

J-Mo said...

I'd say # is Kidman and her scientologist kids and the source of the story on her father is not credible at all btw. #2 is supposed to be Mariah.
