Today's Blind Items - One Week

This actress was a toddler when she was signed to a one year contract on this daytime powerhouse. She barely lasted a week. Because there were other young siblings in the family, the mother of our toddler spent most of the day chasing them around the set which left her daughter alone and unprotected. For five days she was subject to molesting and groping by this long time A list daytime actor. He pretended he was taking care of her, but all he did was abuse her. The mom confronted producers after seeing bruises on the toddler in places that do not normally bruise. The producers then confronted the actor who denied it. The thing is though, there were always rumors about him with a set of twins that had previously played the same character as our toddler. The mom took her toddler that day and had a lawyer draft a letter. The network paid out slightly over $1M to keep it all quiet. The thing is though, the actor was left on the show to finish out that contract. They didn't have the balls to fire him. The character the toddler played is still going strong. Our toddler actress never worked again.

General Hospital ? Rick Springfield?

J said...

See? Take the money and to hell with any other victims.

sandybrook said...

General Hospital Jack Wagner? And one of Felicia's kids on the show? Don't watch it anymoor and don't know who's there and who's not.

MDAnderson said...

Tony Geary???

sandybrook said...

The little girls who played baby Maxie?

Squee said...

Stephanie Johnson on Days of Our Lives, played briefly by Shayna Rose after being played by twins Amanda & Jessica Gunnarson.

sandybrook said...

Stephanie isn't on the show anymore, comes back very occasionally, special family occasions

Brayson87 said...

So you're saying single mothers aren't able to adequately supervise child actors?

MontanaMarriott said...

The Young and The Restless? Caitlyn Taylor play Colleen Carlton in 1993. Every other person was a twin or triplet who played that role.

Guesser said...

Maxie is the character that is still on the show. So guess the likely actor,on GH, about twenty years ago,not on now but finished his storyline. It is ridiculous to guess the name of a toddler abuse victim,especially when she isn't even in the business. Twenty years ago,no one would have believed the accusation,so why judge by today's standard?

MontanaMarriott said...

Lauren Summer Harvey played Noah Newman in 1997 the role was previously played by twins and the character is still on the show.

I guessed Jack Wagner with Maxie @Guesser.

Humor Me said...

I want/ demand a reveal on this one.
I love soaps - grew up on them. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that pedophilia would be a problem on the set of a soap.

Guesser said...

@sandybrook,yes you did! But everyone else is trying to guess a toddler! Was Rick on the show then? They come and go so often I cannot remember.

Sara, Making It Work said...

It only says the actor finished his contract but doesn't say what became of him after, or if he's still alive.
I think this means he could either be dead or not currently working.

J said...

If indeed no one would have believed the accusation, it's unlikely a million dollars would have been paid.

Guesser said...

Rick left BY in 1983,came back 2005. So the large gap makes him unlikely. A lot of women I know are happy to know this. Although he lived with Linda Blair when she was 15, and he was about 26.

sandybrook said...

I think Rick left long before Frisco came on but Rick came back from time to time @guesser

Sara, Making It Work said...

Also, soap contracts tend to be 2 years. They are regularly renegotiated. They let the actor finish and didn't renew, so that means he left while the girl's character as still a child.

So that should help narrow it down.

MeliticusBee said...

@Montana
Colleen Carlton is dead and Noah Newman is male
I dont think this is YR
I like the Jack Wagner guess but not sure why

Trapped said...

Whoever he is he really needs help and if no one says anything, is horrible and disgusting..
They all need to lose useage of their Penis, it's darn right disgusting.
I don't know how they can live with themselves, hurting innocent children
I understand why it's called Hollyweird

Ted Baxter said...

James Franco

hothotheat said...

Woildn't Rick Springfield be described as singer-actor?

I like the Tony Geary guess. He seems like a creep and not kust because he raped Laura.

Sara, Making It Work said...

I also doubt this is Y&R (or B&B). The Bell family seems to run a clean ship. Their daughter was acting since she was a child, so I think they would keep the pervs out.

According to some other blinds, Days of Our Lives was supposed to be the worst, pedo-wise.

TVAnnie said...

Am I the only one who calls Rise by Herb Alpert "Luke and Laura's Rape Song"?

Sd Auntie said...

Tony Geary is gay.

Sd Auntie said...

Why would u base your like of a person on a role he played? You should have seen Billy Clyde Tuggle on AMC. Its called acting. Not real life. Uggh

Unknown said...

Bob Saget?

You're shocked? Cowards will never change. Unfortunately

Nichole Lafayette said...

Jack Wagner and Heather Locklear were engaged. And we know about her Charlie Sheen rumors...

Cee Kay said...

@Sd Auntie And IRL, Matthew Cowles was married to Christine Baranski! Oh, I loved me some Billy Clyde. He was awful. *L*

Bill Philly said...

Dorothy Michaels and Edward Kimberley.

5551423 said...

why is nobody guessing bob saget? remember that simulated sex act he performed on a baby doll?

Hamid said...

What sort of mother would take money and walk away? She should have pressed charges and also issued a civil lawsuit to destroy his life and career.

Tropicana said...

+1

Boots said...

and the rumor about Charlie and Heather together (and her daughter) this was not a reveal but purely speculation for one of Enty's blinds.

Sd Auntie said...

@cee kay. YES, he was awesome and his character was EVIL. RIP MC!

BRAD PITT said...


when i was going to school the principal was physically abusive

to this day he has never answered for what he did

Moe said...

No! I do too, always have. That song is forever linked in my mind with that scene.

Moe said...

I had the exact same thought too...

Viking Song said...

No, Brayson, that isn't what he was saying at all.

But to address the utter bullshit you posted - the majority of mothers aren't single. The majority of mothers who are single are single because of domestic violence or controlling/abusive behaviour, or because the father was an alcoholic/drug addict or simply because the mother was dumped for another woman or man (in the case of women who were used by gay men). Funny how you misogynists never slag off single fathers if one parent families are such an issue? I wonder why that is, eh? It's also amusing that misogynists think they're qualified to lecture mothers about childcare when none of you do any actual parenting. I've yet to meet a man who's eyes don't glaze over when asked even the simplest question about their so-called "parenting" (mum looks after the kids, Dad gets the credit).

What's even more curious is that you offered no comment about the male actor abusing a toddler.

Thot Crimes said...

@Viking - People don't slag off single fathers because obviously they are better parents.

annie roo said...

There is not enough money in the world to shut me up if my children had been interfered with.

Natah said...

This appears to be about Full house.

CF98 said...

Why do people think this is about Full House or Bob Saget? The BI said daytime powerhouse(which means its a soap opera) and twins tend to play the child characters on soaps when they are babies/small children due to labor laws. This could be anyone.
