Blind Item #13

Our favorite former tweener turned A- list singer/bad adult actress says that part of the deal when she landed her hugely successful franchise is she has to make herself available for hooking up with this almost permanent married A list comic actor. He usually comes calling four or five times a year.

Adam Sandler is disgusting. I would love to see karma come calling, but I doubt it ever will. However, maybe with all the blinds lately, it will?

Sara, Making It Work said...

@notthisagain
To be fair, the first Hotel Transylvania movie came out 6 years ago (way before #metoo) and Selena was still a teen when cast.

Amy said...

I didn't realise Adam Sandler had a reputation!

Shaddup Mimsey said...

Nor did I.

Requiring sexual favors for work is SEXUAL HARRASMENT whether or not the victim agreed to it. Call it casting couch if you want but its sexual harrasment.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Just in the past few months there have been two different blinds pointing at Sandler.

J said...

hothotheat, it's a whoring arrangement between adults.

And later, when she cries and says #metoo, she'll be full of shit.

...rinse, repeat, ad infinitum.

Cail Corishev said...

It's prostitution. That used to be considered wrong (for both parties), but in the modern morality for most people it's covered by "consenting adults."

Virginia Mayer said...

One person guesses Adam Sandler and now you all believe that Sandler has a reputation? Man, this is dangerous.

HeatherBee said...

Ah, the old quarterly expense reports ruse.

SarahElizabeth said...

Guys I don't want to believe that Adam is a scumbag. Can none of my favorites just be decent people???

Sal Salington said...

Sandler has no such reputation. Simply false.

Unknown said...

She’s more than willing to do what she has to do for this job therefore it isn’t sexual harassment. Nobody’s forcing her to do anything she literally has a CHOICE.

BBore said...

Having met Adam Sandler in a work environment I can say he is a real gentleman. He takes care of his friends giving them work when they need it. I don't think blind refers to him.

Liv said...

If it's a choice between having a job or not having a job, being promoted or not, it's sexual harassment.

This is classic harassment. Argue all you want, unknown. The definition is clear. And you are wrong.

J said...

lol @ Liv.

There are "jobs" and there are multimillion-dollar acting "careers."

For the most part, these don't overlap.

Cail Corishev said...

The only reputation I've heard for Sandler is that he makes cheap, cash-grab movies filled with product placement and toilet humor, and he and his buddies laugh all the way to the bank. As long as people voluntarily watch them, I can't blame him.

Carlina Colon said...

The "almost permanent" refers to the Actor A rating?

rosie riveter said...

In a just world Adam Sandler would be held accountable for all of the horrendous movies he's subjected people to. Atrocious, appalling, hideous.
I realize I'm being pretty nice today, since it's Friday and all.
On a Monday Id be way more critical.

dazzysima said...

There’s an interview Adam Sandler does on Graham Norton where he makes Claire Foy really uncomfortable which you can clearly tell by her body language. There’s certainly that air about him.

Alf Landon said...

If you read the SNL books this would not surprise you about Sandler

Amy said...

I may be very wrong but I don't get that vibe from him at all. I actually can imagine him being quite shy and awkward more then anything. Like I said I could be wrong.

Sara, Making It Work said...

@Virginia, you *do* know you're on a gossip site, right?

Sara, Making It Work said...

So many naysayers, and yet... nobody has any other guesses...

Sunspirit said...

No buying it about Sandler

Sharper Teeth said...

@dazzysima have you watched that clip, though? It didn't read that way to me, and she put out a statement that that wasn't the case.

Sharper Teeth said...

It came across as a little awkward because she went to put her hand on his, but he moved it before she could, so he put it back again so she could.

At least Selena is at the top of the former-tweener pryamid.

UniversalEnergy said...

She should just file a lawsuit against this person, have other jobs lined up or just do her music, and then do a press conference announcing it and expose the asshole. Her music is more successful than her movies, so she doesn't even need them. She's rich enought to never work is she doesn't want to. She can definitely still sell concert tickets.

Sd Auntie said...

For regular working folks, its harrassment. For Hollywood, it just another working day and everyone does it. Hopefully some day it will change but I doubt it.

DDonna Tarttty said...

Adam Sandler is an aggressive swordsman who enjoys the power Hollywood has granted him and abuses it often. Many innocent maidens have fallen before his villainous rapier, and all evidence suggests the media platform that pays him so well encourages that behavior amongst all their employees.

K said...

J it doesn’t matter whether u agree or not it’s the law

HMR said...

I've met Adam Sandler numerous times and he has always been a completely decent down to earth guy. I don't believe this is him.

Danilo müller said...

Selena Gomez has always been a mess. But anyway it's still hard to understand how all these celebrities can relate to each other.

J said...

K, without debating the veracity of your claim -- partial at best -- the law is not the truth.


Karma said...

Adam Sandler, Chris Rock & their nerdy ilk would NEVER see the light of nah nah if they weren't celebrities. Desperate, old, unfunny, unrelevant nerds SHOULD get rejected. Wisen up young actress/comic girls! WRITE THOSE INCIDENTS IN DATED JOURNALS, TELL OTHERS, KEEP TEXTS, CA5TING CALL DESRCIPTIONS & TAPE THOSE ENCOUNTERS. Their crime will outweigh any infringement of their privacey. Sue-sue,sue & CRIMINALLY PRROSECUTE TOO! It must be hand in hand!

J said...

Right Karma! But gals, be sure to get the parts you fuck for first. Wouldn't want those going to the most talented. Let your #metoo claims ripen for a decade or two.

MaybeMelrose said...

I worked in Hollywood, but not in the entertainment industry, for most of my 20’s. I worked with Adam many times during those years. This was during his Happy Gilmore/Billy Madison years. He was always polite, considerate, and respectful. I just do not believe this blind is about him.

Aquagirl said...

According to the blind, it was ‘part of the deal’. Sounds like she agreed to it up front. I don’t consider that sexual harassment.

And before you call me a victim blamer, I was sexually
harassed on a daily basis at a former job every single day, by 2 different men for 9 months. The worst thing was that I often had to travel with them (either one or both), and they constantly tried to get me into their hotel rooms. I would respond with ‘why?!’ Usually they’d say they had a great bottle of champagne or some other BS. One of the guys was my boss’s boss, & could’ve easily fired me, but I didn’t care. Turns out that was the culture of the company. Everyone, including my female boss & the female head of HR were sleeping with the top guys in the company. I went to the HR person to complain, & she didn’t take me seriously. So I quit, on the spot. Just walked away, which was a huge thing in terms of my career, my reputation, and my source of income.

I am a supporter of #me-too, but when I hear stories like this, where (Selena?) is agreeing upfront to sleep with someone, or when I hear about someone like Asia Argento who says she was raped but then willingly slept with HW for 5 years....c’mon....are you fucking kidding me?

And for those of you who may say that I know nothing about Hollywood, one of my best friends was an actress who, at the start of her career, was working on a project with Bill Cosby. He grabbed her ass, and she got right in his face & told him to get his fucking hand off her ass or she’d walk off set & never come back. He did.

Both of us, despite our different careers, really NEEDED the job & the money at that point in our respective lives. Not WANTED, but NEEDED. Yet we were both still willing to walk away. Is it fair? No, it is absolutely not, but I cannot see any reason (except greed for money and fame) to let a situation get to the point (like going to someone’s hotel room) where a man can easily rape you. I moved to NY on my own when I was 17, so I clearly have not led a sheltered life, but I do know my own self worth.

People such as Sarah are peasants with pitchforks and torches, who'd burn an innocent man's house down and then lynch him, based on 'gossip' and 'rumours'.

Or Hortensia who called somebody a pedophile because he wore 'hats only a pedo would wear'.

Very very dangerous people.

Jack said...

This is Bill Murray. Been his modi operandi through the years and with Selena in particular.

DDonna Tarttty said...

Bill Murray not married.
