Today's Blind Items - A Night To Remember - A Tricia13 Blind

So I left with bated breath(🀞) awaiting the final moments of this Epic night. It is one of many ,but one of my fondest, merely because I genuinely like so many of the players and I know that readers would appreciate their presence in it.

That said-“The Night was just beginning “....

The person who stole the night’s attention has been guessed by many already ,and he was there with his then GF and a woman I came to realize was her sister (part of the doomed future events:(

She (GF/BC) was highly animated in a way people don’t generally arrive at naturally or through Vitamin B shots (if you know what I mean). The Host /Playwright I spoke of payed much attention to him(more than anyone else really),likely because as gay man he was under his spell like anyone with a pulse, but also because they were good friends/neighbors.As I stated , the man with the smile and the iconic family was  an impressive supporter of the arts , and did it on several Theatre Co. Boards-that said ; as I was watching them with what I thought(hoped) was casual indifference- he came over to the bar /kitchen and poured himself a scotch /soda...We chatted again ,without him realizing we already had before at the Valentines Day Benefit about 6 months prior at that theatre company well call the “Unclothed Cherubs”.

He was noticeably buzzed but not as surly as the night of the Benefit .

He was actually sociable(May be the party favors he and GF were partaking in)?

Again- charismatic- but almost tragically poetic somehow in his bemusement. It’s as if he had already seen too much and was impressed by too little. Growing up under the microscope he did, I can only imagine there would be no other way to be....

So A list Asshole Actor/Director offspring coming off the huge hit /iconic film comes over and they chat it up.... Mr. Smile leaves with an eye roll at me (directed at him) and so here we are. I graciously tell him that his film meant a lot too many and that his character was the winning one (I lied lol,)that was held by a friend of mine (TD) who  Enty gives a hard time too❤️.

He replied with no visceral care in the world and said “yeah- I get that a lot”.(I guess I wasn’t the only liar πŸ€₯).He was drinking a Coors Lite and smoking and just wreaked of social discomfort. Contrarily, his guest that night (TR)- actress from an acting family previously mentioned - was a delight. Humble, shy but very engaging and kind. We spoke of her son and and hippy dippy stuff and when I saw the film they were working on at that time I realized how much she was that character IRL.(Repeat.- one of my fave films ).

A brief appearance was made by CB. Dual threat actress who some call equine like in appearance and her actor hubby. Both hold iconic roles - her in TV to film , his solid film (classic-though he is an awesome stage performer)They too are involved with the “unclothed Cherubs” (her brothers as well). I spent time with either at a dinner one night and find her like able(he is very shy but sweet), but they didn’t stay long.... her ex was there ( bonus guess ).

So that brings me back to the fellow guest that intrigued me the most and maybe still does. Our conversation was different(he was not yet famous), and the relationship had a totally different trajectory,as it were.

Recent Yale Grad(but non boastful I had to dig), he was mysterious, guarded and inquisitive about me and my life,which is always refreshing lol. It was due likely to his pre fame but he is still,the same person upon last time we met.

The chemistry was strong and I gave my number out(not often occurrence) f

For example Actor #1 never got it (TV dude with GF)”WS” but he wasn’t my type anyway. Too actory. This guy though. (DR) with the piercing stare and tapestry boho hat did. Never went to the dinner he asked me to go to at his friends crash pad from a 718 area code , but I did much later after many run ins ,met him for sushi downtown ( close to where he spent years growing up with his mom)He had kids and was with a woman who is an AA nominee (foreign) and a great person by all accounts and so never took that Vespa ride as they say). Regrets,Yeah I have a few- but not when I see pix of him with his kids or her with them smiling:)

That said the closure of this star studded evening comes with a touch of the Every man/my “hometown” as it were. It’s actually a comical and light way to end it and was more surreal than the event itself somehow!

So still hanging was WS too coiffed TV actor (not my type ), RD, Smile and his GF, and even A list asshole actor director who was making his way out ... as he says his goodbyes to our lovely host - I see like 4 dudes I went to HS and grew up  with walk in!

To my dismay at the time(now I find it funny)my older sister had managed to alert them to the festivities (still no clue how she had a cell in the 19—‘s? But these were friends, family really we grew up with and weren’t far away from the spot . Distinguishing factor is they were wearing backward Yankee hats juxtaposition-ed against our BoHo beanies and beret...huh? I love a good laugh and these were  a couple :Friend (male) #1 says to TR”you were AWEsome in well “TR”(the film that connotes her initials); or my cuz asking asshole if “RW” (his previous  costar /directorial debut actress, was as hot in person....”? And if her boobs were real (head slam).

Smiles was bemused, his GF still fluttering about unaware of it all, and DR scratching his beret.

Best line of night came from our gracious host and Playwright “ Darling don’t you worry... It ain’t a party until you don’t know half the people at it!”

After hosting many myself, I agree. Still I love him for saying it.

MDAnderson said...

MDAnderson said...

MontanaMarriott said...

Yale Grad-Liev Schrieber?

MDAnderson said...

MDAnderson said...

RD

MontanaMarriott said...

Is the playwright Kushner or Fierstein?

Brayson87 said...

Yay party time! :)

sandybrook said...

The Baldwins and Kim Basinger the first paragraph people.

Unknown said...

way too long-winded get to the point and get rid of the flowery language sheesh

Tierney said...

Is there a reason it's becoming more TDAN here lately? (relax, it's just a question)

Notagoodscreenname said...

Naked angels theatre company.

Unknown said...

Tricia13- long time lurker here- but that was just fun to read! Thank you!! I enjoy reading your blind guesses and even more so your blinds! ����

sandybrook said...

Asshole actor\ director is Ben Stiller

Jooles said...

This party sounds wonderful! Thank you Tricia13! I’d always heard JFKjr and Carolyn loved the booger sugar, so no surprise there. And I agree, the shade thrown to “My Little Pony” Parker is delicious.

MDAnderson said...

Craig Lucas

sandybrook said...

TD is Troy Dyer not the one on this site but from Reality Bites and he is Ethan Hawke..

MDAnderson said...

It’s JFK jr because tricia also mentions Carolyn sister who also died in the plane crash.

sandybrook said...

Yeah you're right MD they are the stealers of the party

MontanaMarriott said...

Is TR-Patrcia Arquette? With the movie being TRUE ROMANCE?

jonaldmcdonald said...

That writing could use some effort.

sandybrook said...

Yeah Montana its Patricia arquette she was part of the first blind.

BlissBoo said...

I love that movie True Romance!

How many Unknowns do we have here? One is an asshole and one is nice.

fnchrstphr said...

Tedious Days and Nights?

J F said...

Can I just interject here regarding the obvious elephant in the room that no one cares to address...

"I'll take 'Spell Check' for a $1000 Alex"

No offense, but basically unreadable... And I'm never a spelling nazi

Disillusioned Fan said...

It’s headache inducing.

David Howes said...

I think Tricia 13, my spouse and I would be fabulous at a party together.

The reason: my wife and I would often just watch the party participants and exchange humorous commentary about their interaction.

Yes, that's mean, but since we'd be off in a corner we could quietly exchange antidotes!

Oh, wait!

We still do that!

=)

Good read, Tricia 13.
I hope you have more.

David Howes said...

FYI: I worked on the SJP movie: 'Girls Just Want To Have Fun!'

Good times!

AListDiva said...

I'm surprised PA would withstand Stiller being such an asShole, but she has praised him all award season long! I agree Yale grad is definitely Liev. Not sure who the brother and sister were, did most people say they thought it was Joaquin and Summer in the last blind?

NorCal Norm said...

Thank you Tricia13 for a great blind. After reading many of these blinds I come to a very clear conclusion, growing up in a small town my life is so very different then a lot of you. While I find these parties interesting they are not my thing. I hope you continue to write many more in the future.

B626 said...

SJP and JFK jr had much publicized fling that lasted a hot minute, didn’t they??

malcam66 said...

I love True Romance. Saw it when it came out on Friday night and had to go again on Saturday. I pretty much never do that.

Great cast, great cameos, fun story. Don't fucking con-den-send me man. I'll fucking kill you man.

sandybrook said...

Yeah they did..forgot about that.

Vita said...

Hooray! I've been waiting for the rest of the story! Fun story, Tricia! That was quite a collection of guests -- late arriving friends included!😁

If the one guest was indeed RDJ, then SJP must have felt like she was on This Is Your Life bc brother (s) from theatre world, RDJ & JFKjr both previous relationships, and hubby Broderick all in the room!

Confident on Ben Stiller, Steven Weber and Patricia Arquette. Agreed that Flirting with Disaster is a forever favorite!

Yale grad Liev. Thought ed norton and salma hayek, but no kids.

Could someone clarify smiling actor? Is that Ethan Hawk from first part or different nickname for one of the initialed guy's on this page. This was the only bit where I got jumbled.

I enjoyed the story and the writing! The backward caps amongst the beanies and berets creates a very vivid picture of the whole scene! I'd love to see more of your and other posters' stories (along with reveals!). Thank you for taking the time to share!

bleacherbunny said...

Man, I wish we could have a deep dive on JFK Jr on the podcast. He was divine!

Bluestar said...

Can someone do a condensed version?

Jane Hanoi said...

Ugh another dancing boy type blind. much too long winded

Shaddup Mimsey said...

@JF I usually am a spelling nazi and nothing is really jumping out at me...

Rachel said...

I'm a Tricia fan - not throwing shade - but I literally can't make sense of this story at ALL w/ so many this person, that person, (half of an aside, etc...

astra worthington said...

My husband and I do the same!

Tricia13 said...

Most welcome Vita!
Smiling guy was /is iconic gentleman I spoke of (We were some of the last to leave). As you know it was a continuation of Part 1 where they were introduced (Enty will probably put them together when he reveals them I’m pretty sure)...
Thanks to all above and below who appreciated it and it was fun indeed ...Cheers:)

Morning Lorri said...

Less is more sometimes, my head hurts. I can’t read this.

Mischief Girl said...

@Tricia, Loved this, thanks for writing it. I was super excited to get SJP and her hubsters. I'm not very good at guessing.

Keep sharing your stories! And I am one who greatly appreciates your guesses on other blinds, so I hope you let the haters just slide off your back.

Tricia13 said...

Bonus question was also guessed above. You guys are good,man.
Enty will reveal On Reveal Day , he’s said so I digress with a 🍾

texasrose said...

My hat's off to you Tricia. You and VIP Blond are the two top guessers here over the since I've been coming here and I can see why.

Amy said...

Yep

texasrose said...

'over the years I've been coming here'

Tricia13 said...

TY texasrose:) Happy we are still here together....

On Toward said...

So incredibly badly written. Can’t CDAN staff at least review it for typos and lousy spelling?

Freckles said...

Had JFK Jr on my flight when I was a flight attendant. He sat on the aisle and yes every woman stated at him. It seemed like he enjoyed it, he smiled and made eye contact unlike some wannabe passengers. He acted flirty, comfortable, like he had nothing to prove

tinydancer61 said...

Tricia I am so envious that you got to party and chit chat with my dream date, JFK, Jr! It was a sad day when they died in that plane and rumor has it that the Clintons needed him out of the way so Hil could run for that Senate seat that he was talking about running for. :-(

That’s another blind I reckon .... he had a broken ankle and should not have been flying (imo). He also felt fairly invincible I think or, at least from what I observed. That and -bored with life ennui) which is a strange combo. That said - very compelling guy.
He was dreamy for sure.

tinydancer61 said...

I wish I could push a "like" button for your comment! :-)

Troy Dyer said...

Am...Am I TD?!?!?!

Troy Dyer said...

🀐🀐🀐

Kimberlini said...

This was the most difficult to read blind ever!! It made me not even care about the guesses.

MichiganMama59 said...

I have no idea at all, but THANK YOU for using paragraphs.

Aoife said...

I enjoyed the read. Thanks Tricia 13.

Why is it that at NY parties back then some guys matching the backward hat wearing crew that showed up at the end literally show up towards the end.

718 area code could be the Boogie Down or Brooklyn/Queens. I'm going to guess it was Brooklyn because there was a scene there at that time. There's and old Law&Order original flavor that did a bit of an exposΓ© about it.

Iggy said...

That was harder to read and understand than a dancing boy blind

Cuddlebutt said...

I enjoyed this blind. Thank you!

Cat Owner said...

JFK Jr once rollerbladed past me on the UWS and it was like time stood still. I have never forgotten that moment! Also he was once in my local diner, which I guess he would frequent. (And I mean, as a New Yorker I was NOT easily star struck.)

Unknown said...

I can't make sense of this, but it seems to entail JFK, Jr., among others. I've seen a much, much more intriguing blind about him on another site...

SillyWhabbit said...

...

Mischief Girl said...

I am so intrigued by Carolyn Bessette Kennedy.

I believe Tricia's description of him--a sense of ennui, jaded, feeling invincible, he knows he's desired in some way by pretty much every person who meets him.

So what characteristics did Carolyn possess that John wanted to marry her? She must have had some extraordinary qualities.

kt said...

JFK Jr. was dedicated to theater arts as he acted
in high school and college drama clubs.

Ed Norton for the Yale Grad (with piercing eyes?)

JL said...

If you lived in Manhattan during that time frame this stuff was standard fare. Nowadays celebs live more-exalted, separate and protected lives. Someone has amazing recall, but in writing less is more.

Unknown said...

@mischief girl: she had the only quality that mattered: Jackie approved of her. Now do you understand his "ennui," "jaded wisdom" and sadness?

pusssykatt said...

LOVED IT!!!!!!

TruRes said...

Yes, the ex.

TruRes said...

Totally. A bit of a loose cannon, I'm guessing. Exciting to him.

TruRes said...

Hang on, who's the actor and actress with the cherubs?

Vita said...

TruRes...unclothed cherubs is Naked Angels theatre company...JFkjr was an Arts supporter and Matthew Broderick and SJP (as well as her brothers) have worked with them. I believe all were at the author of Prelude to Kiss's home for a benefit reading.
