Today's Blind Items - The A Listers

At the time they started dating she was A list. Mostly television actress on the biggest show on the air. He was a foreign born A list singer. He fell head over heels for her. Prior to meeting her, he had never touched any drugs and barely even drank because he said it affected his very unique voice. She was older than him by several years and he never wanted to disappoint her or risk losing her. To her, he was a play toy. To him, she was the love of his life. So, when she said you should do some coke with me, he did. When she said you should do more, he did. He did it to the point where he couldn't go longer than a few hours without using coke. It cost him multiple high profile, high paying television jobs. It also cost him the actress who got him involved in drugs in the first place. She had what she wanted. A couple of years of fun, some additional fame and a chance at doing some music too. He found a new actress girlfriend but all she did was try to keep him off coke while listening to him ramble on about how the A lister should come back and then the next day how the A lister killed him. He was prophetic and did die and he and his family blame the former A lister to this day for his death.

SD!! WTG!

I loved him

yepthatsme said...

Unconnected with the blind in question, but did anyone else catch the Fury Wilder fight? One of the best in recent memory and certainly the most dramatic moment when Fury got up after what seemed to be a sure shot knockout! My jaw hit the floor when he got up!

texasrose said...

Oh please with this crap about her turning him into a coke abuser!! He was an adult. People get addicted any number of ways and if he was going to be a coke head at that time in celeb world he was destined to be one. Plenty of coke to go around then. Doubt the gf had anything to do with it except that she was the one around at that time. What a nightmare - I get to bang Victoria Principal and she supplies the coke - most men's dream at that time.

Need a swiffer to get the dust off this blind.

cat said...

Not sure I believe he didn't use. She never tried to defend herself, until after he passed away. So that makes me wonder if, she didn't want to expose him, as lying or she was protecting herself.

Wow. Kicking it old school.

I love it. A good old fashioned blind that isn't about a Housewife, a rapper, or a Kartrashian.

*googles names people are guessing*

Guesser said...

Andy would have been doomed regardless. Every woman he dated was the love of his life. He was the same with Marie. Get he was married before,and had a child. Even if he wasn't famous,he had an addictive personality. It might just have taken longer.

Lonely Bastard said...

Who's the singer then?

Lonely Bastard said...

Never mind. Ed's first post arrived late to my phone 'cos of the emoji.

Lonely Bastard said...

SD not Ed. Fuck sake!

sandybrook said...

^^^^^😁😁^^^^

Guesser said...

@notthisagain,TheBeeGees baby brother, and the female star of Dallas,the biggest hit show ever at that time. If Enty were around there would be daily blinds.

Guesser said...

Last girlfriend Ti Babaloni,figure skater.

Megley said...

@Texas rose: it takes two to play. Yeah, maybe he'd've been a cokehead either way, or maybe not. I agree Enty melodramatizes the blinds, but GO had a bad rep before Dallas. Google Bernie Cornfeld.

notthisagain said...

wait...is this the member of the BeeGees that killed himself...? :(

Megley said...

Oh yeah--I used a double contraction. On purpose.

Marlin said...

This! Who was the new gf? Who tried to get him off it?

plot said...

@yepthatsme

I watched the highlights of the fight afterwards. DAMN is right! Fury didn't get up slowly either, he practically jumped up after being knocked out. He must be completely terrifying to his opponents, based on the way he glares at them alone, and that clumsy monster way he fights.

Bit of gossip I picked up reading about Fury this weekend -

When he beat Klitschko in Dusseldorf, Fury refused all fluids after arriving to the match until he went home to the UK. So he probably fought that match while completely dehydrated. His reasoning at the time is that the Ukrainians would try to spike his water so he would fail his drugs tests.

Tyson Fury is a very odd man. Totally against all my better judgement, I kind of like him. Yeah, I know about all the things he has said in interviews (omfG!) and his mental issues. For some reason, I can't help myself.

Marlin said...

I always hated her

Jax129 said...

Andy Gibb was my first big crush, I'm still upset by his senseless death

gauloise said...

Cocaine binges were one of the main reasons for Andy Gibb's marriage (which ended 3 years pre Victoria ) to fall apart. He was binging on coke before he ever even met VP.

This is just fan fiction.


LEANNE NORMAN said...

He failed a drugs test and blamed it on eating a full boar including all the innards.
I didn't like him before his homophobic comments but after I wouldn't piss on him if he was on fire.

Teachermom said...

Not this again- he wasn't a member of the Bee Gees. His older brothers made up the band the Bee Gees. He had a solo career. He was the "cute" one. One of my early crushes.

Troy Dyer said...

Blast from the past! I like it.
I’ll remember Andy Gibb from his guest stint on Punky Brewster, with the cringe worthy “thank heaven for little girls”

Unknown said...

Still can't believe he died at just 29 yrs old. What a voice. His debut album was fantastic.

plot said...

@LEANNE

I know, right! I should hate Tyson, despise him in fact. But I can't and I don't know why. Maybe it's his honesty about his mental issues? Or his unprotected love for his family? I don't FUCKING know, but I do like him.

Velvet Voice said...

I heard some WILD stories about her, she also drove crazy ANTHONY PERKINS when he was young ...

Teachermom said...

Andy Gibb's daughter did an interview a couple years ago and said he was taking drugs back when he was married to her mom. Here is an excerpt:
Peta’s mother and Andy married here in Australia. It was around this time that things were really taking off for his brothers in America, and it was not long before Andy got the call to come over and join them. So, it was with excitement about things to come, the newlyweds packed up life over here and headed to the USA.

“They were there for about a year when mum became pregnant with me, by then cracks were already showing in their relationship. My father was caught in the fame and parties and, of course the drugs. He couldn’t escape it,” says Peta.

“I think, basically mum gave him the ultimatum to get straight or she was leaving. He didn’t, so she did and it was messy. There were lawyers involved and it was all over the press, it was a hard time for our whole family.”

Tierney said...

I don't know why I remember this, but Joan Rivers used to slam Victoria Principal incessantly about Andy Gibb. "Puff-puff, Victoria", she'd say, and she mimicked an uppercrust older woman flicking a long-handled cigarette. I never liked Rivers, but she portrayed it exactly as Enty says - an older woman with a temporary boy-toy.

yepthatsme said...

@Plot, I was hoping Fury would lose so we could get Anthony Joshua vs Wilder fight. But on a personal level you have to respect anyone making their way up from the rock bottom. He was saying all sorts of things, his weight ballooned 400 pounds and his career was almost over. Fast forward 2 years and he has dropped 150 pounds and almost defeated Wilder while keeping his mouth shut and letting his actions speak louder than words! Now i just hope Joshua decides to fight him, and it will be the biggest heavyweight fight in years!

Sd Auntie said...

Thanks SB!!! Loved Andy. His songs remind me of 8th and 9th grade. And lived him on that dance show. So sad...

VP used aG for more publicity. She dumped him and he never recovered. He probably was trying to stay on the straight and narrow.

Amartel said...

Aw, Andy! Such a waste.
Originally was thinking this was Valerie and Eddie but roles reversed.

Unknown said...

Is Victoria the reincarnation of Joan Rivers? http://countingdigits.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/69353-victoria-principal.jpg

plot said...

@yep

That is probably it - my US obsession with underdogs and being surprised by unlikely results.

Anthony Joshua is gorgeous. I'll keep an eye out for him.

Confession, I can't watch whole fights. It gives me anxiety. That's why I watch highlights the next day. Something about watching people being hurt I can't handle (this happens sometimes in US Football, too, the injuries destroy me. UFC? forgetaboutit. ) Only after knowing that none of the players were badly hurt in a fight can I watch a match. Then, it can be one of the most interesting sports around, especially with good commentary.

Thomas Fisher said...

LEANNE NORMAN Share a few stories about her please.

Gator said...

It was always said that she dumped him because of the drugs. I never heard of her being that involved with them.

Do Tell said...

It's very sad what happened to Andy Gibb, and I feel very, very sad for Barry Gibb, who has outlived his three siblings. That has to be one of the loneliest feelings in the world.

mercyprosperity said...



He was only 29.
Andy had a pre existing heart condition.

If you don't know his work, look up "Flowing Rivers". Great album.

kelli grrrl said...

Andy Gibb was my first “real” concert. Saw him the summer before 6th grade. The month before the concert, we’d put on his album (literally, a vinyl album) and practice screaming. The song “Shadow Dancing” got the loudest screams. I have no idea how my parents & neighbors could stand it.

FA said...

She was one of Bernie Cornfield's girls back in the day. Some say she was one of his high-priced hookers.

lutefisk said...

FA, my mother had said the same thing. She also said she was a lot older than she claimed.

Seabee666 said...

Everyone with money who tried coke would be addicted. I would if I wasn't a broke college kid when I tried it a few times.

Sd Auntie said...

I tried it and broke out in hives. And had chest pain no thanks

sugar of lead said...

Andy Gibb did not have a preexisting heart condition. He had a heart damaged by cocaine use.

annie roo said...

Ah that explains Victorias nose, seriously rebuilt.

trixie comments said...

@Teachermom - interview is a bit suspect as the BeeGees had a huge string of hits decades before their baby brother was married. To say things were “taking off” implies they were absolute beginners.

Lassie said...

Victoria Principal supposedly seduced Anthony Perkins ("Psycho") when he was 40 F'ing years old, being gay gay gay all his life. Big affair he had with Tab Hunter and other in the closet celebrity men, google it. Dang, she must have been good because he went on to marry Marisa Berenson's sister, Barry, and father children!

Notyomommatoday said...

I LOVED Andy Gibb.. Read so much about him recently because I heard his song on the radio the other day. He was a dreamer, a hopeless romantic. Very naïve too. I watched the video of him meeting Victoria Principal for the first time on a talk show. He was so young..and smitten.. I think he would've done anything for her. The Brothers have said online over and over that they don't blame her for his death, but I always felt there was some underlying tension in their statements. Such a shame, he was so young and talented. She was and has always been a douchebag in my opinion. Even in "Dallas."
