Blind Items Revealed #1 - Anniversary Month

February 1, 2018

The quotes are from the former A+ list tweener. I provided the descriptions.

"The network brass at this huge family of networks is complicit in allowing predators to continue to work for their company, many times after they are exposed. On my last series, I personally witnessed the producers and show runners fondle, kiss, hug, and even forced male actors to sit on their lap. One of the kids on the show was just 12 years old. What I saw shocked me to my core and honestly wouldn’t be surprised if my decision not to play the game had something to do with me being fired.

It was the most uncomfortable, unprofessional, sadistic, agenda-driven set I’ve ever worked on. And on top of that, the honchos in charge seemingly conditioned everyone on the set to become accustomed to this inappropriate behavior."

(One of the producers of the show, who is A+ list has already been exposed and has the full support of at least two female permanent A listers.)

"The other two are currently slated to begin another show at the network. I think it’s important for children, especially child actors to understand the dangers of the industry. And how parents can be easily manipulated and forced to allow their children to be put into adult situations. I was not a minor when I started working on this series. The show I did before that was a massive hit and there was nothing inappropriate ever that took place on set. I worked on that show during my early to mid teen years.

The last show, even though it was a hit was a different experience for me because it was the first time I openly witnessed grooming of young talent and physical contact between older men and young actors.

One of the first episodes of the show was directed by (former A- list mostly television actor from back in the day who had a hit network show and has been spoken about in this space before.) One day after filming I discovered him using drugs with two of my adult cast mates on the set. They made me promise to stay quiet. And it was definitely one of the worst experiences of my life.

I’m not seeking any attention. My goal is too simply do my part to help expose some of the darkness in the industry. The sad thing is there are so many honest, hard-working genuine people that work on sets. From hair and makeup and scenic/ special effects artists, gaffers, craft service, etc. that do just want to go to work and be home at night to spend some time with their kids. Then there are legitimate executives and predators who hide behind charity and live as though they are 18 years old and in High School, sexualizing underage talent at parties and even on set in plain view. The reason people are afraid to speak out is job security.

Getting a job in the entertainment business is a matter of relationships, connections, and getting hired based on who you know. No working professional wants to risk losing their source of income. Tutors who speak out on set are fired. The people who are responsible for looking out for the welfare of minors on set are very complicit in allowing the behavior to continue."

Disney/The Fosters/Barry Medina (producer)/Timothy Busfield (director) (I will leave it up to the former A+ list tweener to identify himself if he so chooses. He did also say, but I didn't include above because he didn't give their names is that two of the producers who also were complicit in the lap sitting and other behavior were being given their own show by the network. In addition, he said that any tutor or below the line person who speaks out is fired so they stay silent.

well, its the day the Bryan Singer article was supposed to come out.

and it didnt.

No one wants to lose their jobs by speaking out about the abuse of minors they see? WTF, it's not like they're going to get a firing squad for whistle blowing. They know, they're getting paid, they're complicit. Greed is greed, but messing with children is a whole other level.

Brayson87 said...

Kelly said...

Does the whistleblower law not apply to hollywood?

Hamid said...

When's the MeToo for victims of child abuse going to happen?

sandybrook said...

Only if you have decided to retire from the business because if you do it, you're done.

Mary Canuck said...

Jake T Austin, I think. Fred Savage directed one of the early Wizards of Waverly Place episodes.

@Hamid

good question, Hamid!

all the young boys Bryan Singer sodomized, drugged and left to die won't be having their metoo moment anymore now that Singer killed the Esquire article.

bohemian rhapsody is doing mindblowingly well at the box office people are starting to say THE MOVIE (not just Malek) and SINGER, should get oscar noms.

Im so sick and tired of this fucked up world. has anyone ever hired a hitman just to kill themselves? is that a thing? cause sign me the fuck up

It’s Benny Medina. The two a listers are Jlo and maybe Mariah. He was the inspiration for Fresh Prince of Bel Air and has had many allegations against him. Jlo has always protected him

Brayson87 said...

@notthis, Watch out, you could be reincarnated as a child actor :(

I've never heard of him and my kids are way too old for tween shows but would Jake Austin be considered former A+ tweener. He fits time period and I see on IMDb his character was replaced by Noah Centineo. Jake was also on Wizards of Waverly Place previously. I see some big names in the cast/crew of Fosters like Teri Polo, Amanda Leighton,Danny Nucci, Joanna Kerns (mom from Growing Pains) as a director. I hate to think they knew this sh!t was going on and did nothing. However weren't there BIs about Growing Pains set and its spinoff Just the 10 of Us? Appalling. If an adult knew and didn't say anything, screw the job. They're complicit in abuse if they didnt report it.

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner MDAnderson 👯

This is definitely Jake T. Austin. The writing style here seems to match some of his tweets.

It does but you can get fired anyway. Try to sue and they have high powered lawyers who will keep you fighting them in court until you go broke. Who ever has the money has the power.
