Today's Blind Items- The Hate

If you have read the site for any length of time, you know my number one rule of show business is to never leave a hit. You just never know if the stars will shine down on you again so milk every last drop off that hit. If Grey's Anatomy is still on the air 20 years from now, Ellen Pompeo will still be there earning that check. Sometimes though, the situation becomes so difficult that you are left with no choice but to leave. This celebrity didn't want to leave the show. He follows the rule, but he had to leave because it was killing him to stay. He was not the first to leave but he will be missed more than the other who left. It is hard to come to work on a show, no matter how big it is if you are constantly being bullied and demeaned and treated like a second class citizen. If you do not suck up to the star of the show and literally call him the greatest the world has ever seen, then you will have a miserable time on the set. Being a bully is not something done for the cameras, it is a real life thing. Our celebrity said he was having trouble sleeping at night. He developed a nervous tic that would start when his tormentor's name was mentioned. Our celebrity was having panic attacks and just could not keep kissing the butt of someone he really disliked and who showed no respect to the accomplishments of our celebrity. Ultimately, our celebrity had to walk away and for once I think it was the right move to make.

Skip Bayless, First Take.
(mostly kidding)

Kno Won Uno said...

Jussie Smollett/Empire/Terrence Howard?

sandybrook said...

Shemar Moore?

Kno Won Uno said...

Morley Safer/60 Minutes/Steve Kroft?
I have no idea - and yes, I know Morley died.

Kno Won Uno said...

And Joe Mantegna?

sandybrook said...

I would think it would be Joe forcing him to go if its him.

MontanaMarriott said...

Michael Weatherly leaving NCIS?

Kno Won Uno said...

I guess I was thinking "not actor" since it says 'celebrity'. That could be sports or reality or talk show...IDK.
Prince Harry/The Throne/Prince William (Bully)

Rebecca said...

Something Dinozzio, from some sort of cop show?

sandybrook said...

Michael Weatherly also quit his show--so either him or Shemar?

Kno Won Uno said...

OT - Why the hell is Bethenny Frankel throwing Nicky Hilton's baby shower? WTaF?

sandybrook said...

Montana already said him up above

MontanaMarriott said...

I recall watching one of the few reality tv shows I watch RHOBH that BF and Kim, Kyle and Kathy were good friends for quite some time, so perhaps that's why?

Kno Won Uno said...

It seems so weird - out of left field. Maybe Paris is incapable. Or broke or contagious....

New Gossip Fan said...

Jesse Tyler Ferguson/Eric Stonestreet

Cdub said...

What about Chris Berman from ESPN?

AdGirl said...

Building on MM's reply - Bethanney used to drive Paris & Nicky to and from school every day when she was first starting out. That said, I'm positive the Hiltons were waiting for just the right event to play one of many cards they hold ...

Schully said...

Bethany was Kathy Hilton's PA for years.

Kno Won Uno said...

This combination was never on my radar - big chunk missing from my celeb knowledge.
(In case that wasn't obvious from my 'guesses') ;-)

Kno Won Uno said...

Oooh....this is good. Ferguson's "taking a break"

nancer said...

i don't watch 'modern family' anymore, but what other 2 people left?

Stephe96 said...

No idea. Michael Strahan?

CrashDiego said...

This and Screaming A Smith is really not a bad guess.

Kno Won Uno said...

I'd rather watch Stephen A than Tom Brady's personal sex doll.....my bad - I keep forgetting Brady shares Bayless with Romo - I'm sure they kicked Tebow out of the timeshare by now.
(I can't help it, I'm an Eagles fan)

Rc said...

I like this one +1

Meg said...

I like this guess.

Mmm said...

I like this too. Terrence Howard is a dbag

Mmm said...

Joe Mantegna and Mark Harmon are sweethearts

Jessica said...

Totally Michael Strahan- first two leaving Kathy Lee and Reege!!

Mmm said...

The bully is a male

Stephe96 said...

I retract my Michael Strahan guess. The bully is referred to as 'he'

Tricia13 said...

I keep referring to term celebrity and not actor, makes me think of The upcoming Apprentice(which shot but hasn't aired I believe) and the one and only --- Arnold S as the bully......the wording is tricky and unclear but I'll guess Boy George(huge accomplishments)/Aaarnold S.upcoming Apprentice season: maybe he left the show - won't know till it starts airing as its contractual.
Carson Krressly is also on, not sure of other guys who will appear.

anon said...

I thought JTFs show was just a summer run in time to go back to MM?

Weatherly left because he owns. production company and his pilot got picked up by another network, that and he said it wasn't the same once Coty left.

Gummibear said...

Michael Strahan
Geldon. Live
Jt Ferguson modern family
His husband on the show

Baby Trisha Harvey said...

Yaaaay mommy's back lololololololol

Bambibuubzitch said...

This sounds to me something like Food Network Star. Bobby Flay as the bully and Alton Brown as the victim?

AdGirl said...

I totally agree with your attention to "celebrity" vs. "actor" @Trisha (welcome back, btw! I've missed seeing your name :)
I don't really watch much reality/competition TV, but my first thought was Dancing w the "Stars". Or someone from Project Runway(?) Or maybe a cooking show (Top Chef??) Either way, I think the deliberate naming of "celeb" is key...

Greer said...

Master Chef lost a judge who hasn't been replaced. The new season started this week with only 2 judges and a rotating collection of guest judges.

Wendy said...

I don't know, the blind makes it seem like it's someone who has been on multiple seasons of a show....or maybe not lol

btw, welcome back!

Gypsy Trill said...

This is totes Michael Weatherly from NCIS. The stress even contributed to his recent DWI.

Tricia13 said...

Thx @wendy:)

mastik8 said...

Kunal Nayyar.

MW said...

Sorry,, but lot of actors have a production co. He got his couple years ago. He did mentioned Cote's name but I don't think he said he departure was something different.
This blind items screams his name.
Michael Wearherly.

MsVicki said...

Yay! So glad to see you're back????

Dani said...

Great guess. I'm gonna jump on this band wagon

LAprGuy said...

Masterchef makes total sense. Graham Elliott/just left show, Gordon Ramsay/bully, Joe Bastianich/not as popular.

Vivs said...

Definitely Michael Weatherly. He left after being mistreated in a show he dedicated his life. In the last two seasons he hasn't been given any decent storyline and at some point he and his co star who is also executive producer Mark Harmon couldn't even speak, they were in the same room and both were communicating to each other through their assistants. Think about it, have you seen profound significant scenes between the two of them in the last couple of years? Mark Harmon in weel known as someone who believes is better than anyone, who can do and undo things in NCIS with his sole word and who's Napoleonic ego clouds her mind constantly.

CelticLove said...

Michael Weatherly, but can't see him having panic attacks or getting a tic whenever Mark's name is mentioned. But maybe. Mark's character Gibbs was also a bully to DiNozzo, more than any of other characters.

back again said...

Hey there Tricia ! welcome back & from what i've read on here there was a pretty wonderful 'reason' why you were gone...very happy for you if that be so! : )

back again said...

i immediately thought Michael Weatherly...I asked on here just last week why the hell he was leaving a surefire paycheck

back again said...

i didn't know about Jesse Ferguson but he must be exhausted with his Broadway show 8 times a week...he should take a break when it closes in July.

Cinabun said...

+2

LaraSilvaxx said...

Michael Weatherly is being bullied by Mark Harmon? And where exactly did Michael say he's got panic attacks and a tic because of Harmon? Can you actually give real proof of the things you stated? I highly doubt that. Did you think if you repeat the lies from the fans of Cote de Pablo, Ziva and Tiva that it would give you more clicks? You're just spreading more lies about a man who hasn't done anything wrong. And then you mentioned how Harmon forced Bellisario out of the show. Did you know that Bellisario didn't treat the cast that well? Did you know that Harmon fought for everyone on the set who couldn't deal with 20h per day schedule, no real scripts in time to even learn their lines? Go and keep spreading lies and bullshit about Mark Harmon. It only makes you look poor and desperate for attention from a group of people who were truly and openly threatening the life and wellbeing of Michael Weatherly's family on social Networks. But yes, Mark Harmon is the big bad bully *sarcasm*

Malibuborebee said...

Oooh, @Kno, that's good. I was trying to think of a YUGE douchebag and there he is, Mr. BabyWipes.

Malibuborebee said...

FWIW Joe Mantegna's a sweetheart. I can't see him on either end of this blind.

He'd walk if someone was fucking with him but he wouldn't have a bunch of sleepless nights over it, he'd just leave.

Malibuborebee said...

Me too - I'm useless at Housewife and most other reality show blinds.

You're right about Paris, what would she know about baby showers? She's never thrown one and probably hasn't attended many either. I'm pretty sure the only parties she's interested in are parties for Paris.

Malibuborebee said...

When he's not "on" doing his shouty chef thing for the cameras, Gordon Ramsay is a total pussycat. Joe Bastianich not only forced them into the position of having to let a stripper win a season, he's just a nasty piece of work all around.

I thought Joe left - forced out due to the stripper debacle noted above.

Malibuborebee said...

Um... I don't quite understand all that, @Lara, but if you'd ever care to elaborate I'd be fascinated to know more.

The only thing I ever heard about Harmon was that he had a long-term mistress who lived fairly close to where he and his wife live. Nothing mean or ugly about him at all and he was discreet with the mistress. His sister's another story - she's a piece of work and a cokehead.

Studio54 said...

Whoever it was was smart to leave. I agree with Enty's rule, except in a situation like this.

Wooley Huey said...

Random ppl are guessing Michael Weatherly. Sure seems to me that the subject actual spoke to Enty and provided this info directly. Also, do you know Mark Harmon personally? Have you worked intimately with him on set for several years? How is it that this can't be true if you haven't? Also this site doesn't provide any other guesses. It says Michael Weatherly and Mark Harmon. Go to June 2nd. http://www.agcwebpages.com/BLINDITEMS/2016/JUNE.html
