Blind Item #1

This former A list bad actress focuses on her company now more than her acting. If she does try to make a new movie or television show in the future, she faces a possible ban by her union because of the way she is avoiding paying that union for some commercials her company is making.

Jessica Alba and her Honest company?

Unknown said...

Yup. She practically had her own branch on the Derek Jeter herpes tree.

Unknown said...

Didn't think she actually ran Honest Company.

Happy Eid @Geeljire

you'd think people would catch on to how shitty her products are and stop buying them, but nope.

Geeljire said...

Thank you!
I'm gonna continue to celebrate and let the deranged pro-pedophile sockpuppet army cook
It's also almost as if making themselves look deranged is by design!

"Honest"

I was given honest diapers and it they were honestly the worst diapers. They were like cardboard.

It's Trump genius. He has the Dems running on a pro-war, pro-pedophile, tax hikes and open borders platform.

By all means please continue to "Resist"!

Such a lame filler "non blind". Deadline, Variety & THR are all reporting this story.

Geeljire said...

You should have heard all the unhappy people in Manhattan when Trump and Kim Jong-Un said there's not going to be a nuclear war.
People were and are very upset there is not going to be a nuclear war.
It was surreal but not entirely unexpected!
Have a great day😎

OMG, SAG sent out an email about this very same thing last night to all it's members:


DO NOT WORK NOTICE: THE HONEST COMPANY
Please be advised that The Honest Company is shooting non-union commercials in the Los Angeles area this week, produced by non-signatory ad agency Mother. The union reached out to The Honest Company and Mother to sign these spots to the SAG-AFTRA Commercials Contract so that performers being hired to represent families would be entitled to fair wages and working conditions. To date, neither The Honest Company nor Mother have agreed to sign the Commercials Contract.

All SAG-AFTRA members are hereby instructed to withhold services for this production until further notice. Accepting employment or rendering services on any of these upcoming commercials may be considered a violation of Global Rule One. Violating this order may result in disciplinary action in accordance with the SAG-AFTRA Constitution.

So this isn't a blind, Enty is just on the SAG distribution list or was forwarded the email by someone that is.

And I have not worked in the entertainment industry in any capacity - so can someone enlighten me to whats wrong with not using union for her commercials? It doesn't say that she is under paying or mistreating the people hired for the commercials so did she sign a contract at some point stating that she would use the union??

Owlette said...

Honest products are shit anyway.

@Ophelia, unions are about restricting the supply of labor to keep prices high. (Just ask the American Medical Association, which tries to restrict the number of doctors to keep salaries high, or the American Bar Association, which does the same for lawyers.)

SAG-AFTRA doesn't want its skilled professionals to work for less than union wage, which I would imagine the people on the Honest shoot are doing. If everyone works for less than union wage, no one will bother to hire union.

@ophelia

Unions also help workers not be exploited, which in media is very necessary because a lot of people will work for free for these types of jobs to "build their portfolio/resume" Problem is, once the portfolio is built, you can't get work cause of all the people waiting to work for free, low paid or as interns.

Unions also make sure you work only a set number of hours a day (Movie shoots can run long) are given adequate food/beverages, get guaranteed coffee breaks, there are places to be warm or go to the bathroom on location shoots, etc.

SAG is a union, that is why they are concerned.

If she is using non union, she is definitely doing it for financial reasons, to save money. Everything about Honest is super shadey.

Ophelia said...

Nutty, thank you! I know that many tradesman or clinical personnel personally opt out of unions so I wasn't sure how they worked with the entertainment industry

Thot Crimes said...

SAG could suck my saggy balls if I had some.

Do Tell said...

What the fuck is with the doxing? Posting personal information is WHY the other format was better, you could report and ignore people.

Boo Hearne said...

Oh, No! Not HER again?! I thought she went back to New Mexico yesterday! Well, I was supposed to but was asked to do an interview on a NYC talk radio program. Stayed over for that.

When I read blinds like this, I wonder if anyone in El Lay read sites on-line that report on Earthquakes around the world. Flash! In the last week there have been over 50 major quakes in the Pacific Rim. One an 8.5! FYI-California is in the Pacific Rim. While the petty people are dwelling on shutting down a product line, Mother Nature is in Super PMS Mode and getting ready to shut down some s--- herself.

I pray the cameras are rolling at the various Kardashian Kompounds when The Big One happens! Talk about Bonus Shotz! Can you just imagine the looks on their faces? Well, with all the plastic surgery and Botox, you won't be able to tell, will you?

By the by, it was President Trump who deported the Nazi back to Germany today. Obama, whom I loved, sat on it for the entire 8 years of his presidency. Yes, he's 95, yes he's in a wheelchair, yes, they took him straight from the airport in Germany to a nursing home, but somewhere out there, many people whose families had given up hope, are celebrating. Never stop hoping the bad people will get caught. They always do!

Ophelia said...

Gaul, thank you as well for that explanation! This seems relevant to Kendall's latest backlash about criticizing the models that do 30+ fashion shows a season

SteveD said...

"If" she acts again? She's already in the upcoming Bad Boys spinoff TV show.

DooDooBrown said...

Good for her. Unions have outlasted their purpose. Now they're just shakedown organizations for funneling money to the DNC.

They're redundant, government regulations cover everything they were ever good for.

Hamid said...

Happy goat fucking festival!

Yesterday had some feel good news. In the morning, a muslim knifeman was shot dead when he tried to attack a police station in Spain. Best of all, he was killed by a female officer. No 72 virgins for him!

Then later in the day, four muslim terrorists, three teenagers and one aged 11 (such a wholesome ideology), were shot dead in Chechnya when they failed to carry out a planned attack.

That's five dead muslims, zero human fatalities. Delicious.

Add to that the million muslim terrorists being held in counter extremism camps in China, it's a good news bonanza!

Hamid said...

Muslims are such smart people. Why, just a few years ago, a muslim protesting in Pakistan against a film that mocked the death cult died when he inhaled fumes from the American flag he was burning.

Off topic, but jury just came back on Manafort. Deadlocked in several charges, but guilty in eight charges including tax fraud and hiding foreign bank accounts.

Brayson87 said...

Haha SAG is a f*cking joke, and I don't mean the couching kind.

Hortensia said...

Personal information should not be allowed to be posted on this site.

Please have some standards Enty people.

MDAnderson said...

I just realized what was in the post because I usually ignore his postings. This is not cool at all posting someone’s personal information and where they live. You have gone too far and it’s disgusting.

I'm only here for the snark. Pffft with Kindness Blinds. said...

alba stole that company from someone else. Guess she learned from the Kartrashians.

UNIONS ARE NOT REDUNDANT!! Geesh, how the hell do you think workers of today get what they do?! It's a constant fight with companies just to retain basics! Damn....you're ignorant if you think the gubment is gonna be sure to take care of you.
Asswipe!

hunter said...

Boo - I love you and I wish we could keep CDAN politics free.

I've started to wonder if some accounts exist for the sole purpose of getting people to fight.

Not Boo's account but some of the others. Just a thought - paid fight-starters to sow dissent amongst us people. I don't like it. :(

hunter said...

Yeah so HAMID'S COMMENTS are an example of what I mean.

How is that shit relevant to the blind? It isn't.

Hamid said...

You mean Osama bin Geeljire posting someone's home address and endlessly saying all Jews are paedophiles is relevant to the blind?

Put a sock on that puppet! :)
