Today's Blind Items - Gone But Not Forgotten

If you think about someone like Victoria Justice and how she went from work to no work, it is more about bad luck and just making some wrong decisions. You do get the sense she will be back though. One person though, who will probably not be making any time of comeback is this former A-/B+ list mostly movie actress who has been acting since childhood. I'm sure all of you know her name even if you can't pick her out of a lineup. She has some big hits to her name. Anyway, in the last three or four years, she managed to have affairs with two or three of the top money people in Hollywood. The wives found out about this and the word was sent out to not hire her for anything. I know, I know, the husbands should be just as much to blame, and that is where we get into part two of this. All of that pillow talk about very bad guys in Hollywood and what they have done to women, she passed along to anyone who would get it out to the media. So, basically she is double cursed right now. The only work she gets is slightly better than diet tea and it is only because she has language skills and can do some modeling and commercial work out of the country.

Eliza Dushku? Is she getting any work?

sandybrook said...

Yeah she is.

Staci Keanan? She did some movies after Step by Step

Lucy said...

@sandybrook - I'm from Boston and so is Eliza. A few of my friends did some small-time videography and production work back in the day and had the chance to meet her when a local charity hired her for talent and my friends to do the producing. They said she was a super sweet gal and when they picked her up at her house, she was hungover from the night before but was making light of it and not a diva at all. I know she has a bad rap after the Rick Fox debacle, but insiders said she was awesome and a pleasure to work with.

Michelle Trachtenberg, maybe.
She had a lot of TV roles but did have several hit movies as a child. Supposedly was up for the lead in Twillight but didn't get it due to "scheduling conflicts".
Hasn't done much of note lately.
Speaks Russian.

Sara, Making It Work said...

She's a lawyer now.

plot said...

Victoria Justice seems to be working regularly. What is the point of the first part there?

Dushku still works.

cheesegrater15 said...

Michelle works. I swear I heard she's slept her way through her career.

sandybrook said...

Michelle Trachtenberg is a good one. She's barely working.

Lucy said...

@plot - I think Enty was trying to make the point that some, like Victoria, don't get parts due to external factors like bad role choices or bad management advising them incorrectly, whereas whomever this blind is about screwed the wrong men (wrong because they were married) and shot herself in the foot. Perhaps if she didn't do that, she'd still be working.

I checked both Eliza and Stacey on IMDB, and both have had roles right along, especially Eliza.

I think Sara could be on to something with Michelle Trachtenberg.

kfitz said...

what about jeanette mccurdy?

Tricia13 said...

Michelle is /was mostly TV
Thinking someone like Rosario Dawson(but she still works quite a bit

NateInSoCal said...

Michelle has really never had any good roles in the adult part of her career though.

gauloise said...

Dushku is on that show Bull based on Dr Phil

Trachtenberg is a regular (voice) on Robot Chicken, but she is known mostly for her TV work, not movies.

kfitz said...

eh nevermind. shes mostly tv.

Tricia13 said...

Is this meant to be Leelee Sobieski our fave dominanatrix?

sandybrook said...

I doubt that, didn't she quit the business because she didn't want to be hit on anymore by the pervs? I'm sure her dominatrix business is very lucrative

Sara, Making It Work said...

Maybe it was also was to get us thinking about someone roughly her age (not back in the day) &/or a Nickelodeon star, which is why I thought Michelle. But I could be wrong about that.

gauloise said...

Her husband quit the fashion biz at the same time she quit movies, seems they are just hanging with their kids enjoying being parents.

gauloise said...

Tara Reid started out as a child star.

Melvin The Reanimated said...

Hilary Duff? She does have that Younger show, but outside of that, hasn't done much beyond self-promotional stuff and voice over work for the past several years. she has, like, two movies on her CV since 2012

OriginalKK said...

Daveigh Chase?

Don Kieballs said...

The part about Victoria Justice is out of place. Maybe it's hinting a former co-star, or one of the other actresses who suffered through Dan Schizer?

DDonna Tarttty said...

No idea, but thinking the VJ reference must be a hint of some kind.

kfitz said...

@Don Kieballs thats why i was thinking miranda cosgrove or jeanette or someone like that.

Count Jerkula said...

If they would have enforced the rule they had on the books at the onset of Kap trying tonget released, this would have been a non issue

Melvin The Reanimated said...

okay, but who is like Victoria, Miranda, Jenneatte et al, that was mostly movie and A-/B+? Most of them were mostly TV. Ans they have to have had little work in the past four years.

Melvin The Reanimated said...

Well...Amanda Bynes fits...

kfitz said...

abigail beslin?

*2 Girls Gone Raw* said...

Minka Kelly

Pope of Hollywood said...

Whatever happened to Rachel Lee Cook?

Sara, Making It Work said...

I thought about her too. Does she speak any other languages?

pkelly491 said...

Hayden P?

Melvin The Reanimated said...

Bonnie Wright of the Harry Potter franchise has no released films on her imdb since 2015. Two are listed as in "post-production" but that's it.

gauloise said...


Hailee Steinfeld was the next big thing for a while, and her career has totally stalled out in the past few years, she has been just doing the pitch perfect franchise and a bunch of video shorts, although she has a completed movie coming out, nothing else in production

She also said on Twitter that she speaks spanish.

Melvin The Reanimated said...

@Gauloise...Steinfeld is in the Transformers spinoff Bumblebee. That's...sort of a big project.

Mika Boreem has a huge gap in her credits. Her last full length film was in 2012, only really did shorts and a segment of an anthology horror film since. Has one, seems to be low budget, film in post for 2018, but that's it.

Brayson87 said...

I don't see Hailee Steinfeld having affairs with "with two or three of the top money people in Hollywood," has anyone heard any different?

gauloise said...

@Melvin I dont watch transformers, I thought that bumblebee was a little indie project :)

Melvin The Reanimated said...

Oh! And another one I found: Evanna Lynch. Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter. No credits since 2015. Speaks French.

Molly Hale said...

What about Ashley Tisdale

kfitz said...

dont you bring luna lovegood into this.

kfitz said...

or vanessa hudgens? she hasnt really done much, and nothing that I would consider big.

Darkmyst said...

Hailee should have had her 2nd best actress nom for The Edge of Seventeen and she was Iin the last two Pitch movies. Plus she is in thew new transformers movie and has a successful singing career. Her career has not stalled.

Melvin The Reanimated said...

Tisdale and Hudgens still have credits to this day. Maybe not huge, but consistent. There are no gaps in their timelines. Not them.

T. W. said...

@Sandybrook

Stacey Keenan uses her birth name now & practices law.

Ervin Thompson said...

Who are these women you're talking about?

Kelly said...

Heather Graham

Charis said...

Hallmark Channe

Robin Suda said...

Neve Campbell

Jordyn said...

Nicola Peltz.

Has worked as a model. First big movie break was Deck the Halls with DeVito, Broderick and Chenoweth. Was in The Last Airbender (Nickelodeon link). Was in a Transformers movie.

Jordyn said...

Oh, and the "diet tea" comment is a reference to Snapple. Her father at one time owned Snapple and turned the company around before selling it to Cadbury-Schweppes.

bianca said...

She only did a couple of episodes the 1st season with the possibility of becoming recurring, but was not asked back for season 2.

Grisly Addams said...

If I always guess Blac Chyna I'll be right more than I'm wrong
