Blind Item #2 - Reader Blind Item

This blind is about the biggest story in London that was never reported.

In the 90s I worked in a restaurant that was located on the 15th floor of building off Oxford Street in London.  It had great views of the city with wall to wall windows.  Half the building was a hotel and the other floors were occupied by the BBC.  Due to the location of these offices we often served big and minor celebs in the restaurant.  I once made John Cleese and Michael Palin laugh (it doesn’t get much better than that).  I also once snapped at ‘Chelle and Sharon from Eastenders because they dared to try and order a drink when I was frazzled and having a minor panic attack.  I shared a lift with Ewan McGregor (unfortunately he didn’t hit on me) and put up with a grumpy ‘ol Dell boy!

This blind though doesn’t evolve from the mouths of celebs, but from the mouths of BBC news editors and journalists who were having a posh lunch and chat as an end of year celebration.    There were about 15 of them and of course about 90% men.   I’m Australian and one of them asked me in a deliberately condescending tone, “So, which part of the antipodes are you from?”.  Yes, they were those kind of fellows. 

As lunch was served and wine topped up, the conversation turned to deciding what was the biggest story that they had never reported.  As the conversation continued, I made sure to stay close to the table and eavesdrop.  Wouldn’t you?  They tossed around a few ideas and then they all decided on one story that they all knew about, but never reported or even whispered in the press. 

According to the journos and editors one of the most famous marriages in history ended because the fiery wife actually walked in on her A list husband in bed with one of his male friends.  So why was this never reported?  .  They all really liked the  A list man who was sprung playing sword fights with his able seaman.  (they were quite indifferent about the wife, who has never really been accepted in the upper echelons of British society).  They respected him too much personally to reveal the truth. 

Are you surprised?

Simon said...

Groan. Another reader blind.

BossyPants said...

This is a repeat!

Eejms said...

Not just another reader blind but a repeat reader blind.

Old blind recycled ... Fergie and Andrew

Enty is just mixing shit up is all. The only original blinds on here are from Himmmm, all else is mostly lifted straight from the DM or just random gossip one of the Ents has heard when out for dinner or attending an award show. I haven't seen a post from Himmmm in a while, I was really expecting them to go after Snyder bigly, but that fat fuck seems to be a protected species, not a murmur since he was dumped by Nick. No Weinstein, or Ratner, the odd allusion to Singer but not much. Instead endless nonsense about D-list rappers and baby mommas and who's fucking who. That's all very enjoyable but this site got big from the fearlessness of the posts, that seems to have come to an end. Has Ent had his balls cut off? Sure looks like it.

Recycled. Maybe they didn't have their British Buggery story of the week yet:)

The DM is all about the royal wedding today, so not much new material available for Enty, I suppose.

Guesser said...

Rerun! Enty is secretly at the wedding,but doesn't want to admit it.

Krab said...

It's reruns season already.

Unknown said...

+1 I'll give him credit it's not another fucking rapper or reality TV blind, but just digging around the trash for old crap is lazy AF

Do Tell said...

This was posted here before. I think the answer was Prince Andrew.

Unknown said...

Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon & Antony Armstrong-Jones, 1st Earl of Snowdon

Cold in Ct said...

Fergie and Prince Andrew

DDonna Tarttty said...

Rerun? Has that ever happened before? Definitely feels like CDAN's been compromised, whether from internal or external sources. We all know why, and what caused it.

Getting close to June. Don Henley sweating it out? Or having a good laugh?

I knew I wasn't crazy.

TownChica said...

I don't remember repeats ever happening before. Are you sick enty???

Thia said...

I knew I wasn't crazy either. Ents, you ok???

delete account said...

That's a repeat blind, entry.

Unknown said...

Oh, thank god it's not me, I knew I'd read this one before, lol. I guess this is what we get now, since the OCD twatwaffles from 4chan drove off Hmmmmm with their stalking. Shame. This place was fun, for a while, now it's all repeats and rappers nobody cares about acting like rappers and "reality" stars acting like the pigs they are. It's dreck. Glad i was around for the truly great posts from Hmmmm, while they lasted.

Boldblonde said...

Old blind. Prince Andrew.

Sd Auntie said...

Thought this was a reveal. Lol

Thia said...

I tweeted Enty. I've done that a few times and have gotten a response.

NancyFromNebraska said...

Something something - Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew.

Amy said...

Obviously rerun this blind because of the wedding and the connection to the wedding with Prince Andrew and 'fiery' red head Fergie. No, Enty isn't sick, just maybe he thought you'd get what he was doing....basically making the blind very obvious.

Unknown said...

SIR RICHARD BURTON and ELIZABETH TAYLOR.

Rinse and Repeat.

Manuél Bun said...

Repeat reader blinds aka CDAN herpes

prixie said...

Enty has run out of materials that they need to rerun a reader blind?

Jennacheryl said...

Is this a rerun because the ex fiery redhead was at the wedding today? Which is it though? Is Prince A homosexual or pedophile? In most cases there isn't a cross over of people. Minus Spacey obviously.

JL said...

Total repeat. I thought this was going to be the reveal.

T. W. said...

Maybe Enty repeated this blind to tell us something is amiss with Prince Harry & Meghan Markle but he can't say what. Not yet.

Mo said...

Probably not it,but I remember hearing about someone walking in on David Bowie and Mick Jagger. I think Jagger might’ve been married to that model Jerry Hall? I was told Iman walked in on them though.

Bubbles said...

Mo, the story you're referencing is David Bowie's ex Angie telling the story of walking in on him with Mick Jagger. This was the 70's.

DIA said...

Kenneth Branagh/ Emma Thompson/ Keanu Reeves

Thia said...

@DIA A - +1 on the Kenneth and Emma guess.
