Today's Blind Items - The Courtesan

I am trying to think of someone less likely to be  courtesan, but am having trouble bringing anyone to mind. There was the former A- list network actress from a long running hit show about a northern state that was shocking. She also kept to very familiar circles and was seen as someone you needed in your corner or on your arm or in your bed if you wanted to succeed in politics.

The one I am talking about right now was once A list. A celebrity. She did reality once or twice and the results were pretty horrific. Plus, she was so horrific to other cast and crew that she was essentially barred from any sort of US television landscape. She is foreign born, and became famous worldwide for someone she married rather than anything she did on her own. She has had some attempts at television in her home country and other celebrity making endeavors, but much like here, no one wanted to work with her.

Over the past several years, she has been seen in private clubs and gambling rooms on the arm of much older men who are all very wealthy. She provides a service. She can be discreet and she made her fortune by servicing a much older man and making him feel special. She translated that into tens of millions of dollars. Right now, she is looking for the same type payoff, but she is having trouble getting men to divorce their current spouses. They are happy with paying our celebrity a retainer of the equivalent of $100K per year to make herself available whenever they need her. She has about a dozen men on the payroll and does what she wants and travels in the circles she wants and continues to treat those she considers beneath her like crap. Oh, before I forget, there was a judge she slept with for a month to get a favorable ruling for her in an important case.

Janine Turner?

/Northern Exposure

MDAnderson said...

Janine Turner for the first actress??

Tricia13 said...

Brigitte Nielsen #2v

Tricia13 said...

?

lucy fairyz said...

Pam anderson

MeMyselfandIandYou said...

Janine is not foreign born

MDAnderson said...

I like Brigitte for this

Tricia13 said...

Brigitte is though

MDAnderson said...

There are two people in the blind. The first isn’t foreign born

Tricia13 said...

👍her reality show efforts were so cringy

sandybrook said...

So if Enty called this the high-class whore, he would get his ass sued so he used a different, nicer word for it?
Probably Janine and Brigitte.

Jenn B. said...

Brigitte Nielsen

MDAnderson said...

Flashbacks of her kissing Flavor Flav🤢🤢🤢

Moose said...

But Nielsen is happily married with a 1 year old child. And she's 55. Are that many people paying that much money for an over-50 Sly Stallone reject?

RedVelvetBoots said...

Brigitte must be 60 yrs old. If true then damn girl! :)

gauloise said...

Nielson is either pregnant or just a had a baby. Also she was famous for acting, not marriage

J said...

I'll spend my money on something else thanks.

Notagoodscreenname said...

I'd say Kathryn Heigl for #2 but she's not foreign born.

Tricia13 said...

No. Nooooooooooooo!

Moose said...

I thought 2 could be Pamela Anderson, who is foreign born and done reality, but is her marriage to Tommy Lee more than her being on Baywatch as a reason she got on people's radar?

Is Janine Turner that connected politically? Last I saw, she was an active conservative screaming at Republicans who would not back Trump.

Tricia13 said...

Maybe 2) is Katie Price......

Rosie riveter said...

Lollll GROSS

sandybrook said...

Pam Anderson first got on people's radar by being Playmate of the Year and Hugh Hefner pushing her all the time. That led to everything else good that ever happened to her. Brigitte got on radar for marrying Stallone, that led to anything else she did afterwards.

Jerri Ryan of Star Trek Voyager. Born in Germany, an army brat.

Her ex-husband, Jack Ryan, was running for Senator in Illinois, but dropped out of the race when allegations in their divorce proceedings were made public (2004). Jack Ryan was into S&M and sex clubs- her, not so much.
She is however married, with two children.

gauloise said...

It says #2 got famous via marriage, not for anything she did professionally. It sounds more like a gold digger, someone like:

Rachel Hunter,
Ivana Trump
Heather Mills
Sarah Ferguson (had a reality show on OWN for 6 episodes)

MountainMama said...

I don't feel men are going to shell out that kind of cash for an old woman to keep on the side. This is not Brigitte. They might however pay that kind of cash for Pammy even though she is getting pretty long in the tooth as well. Sounds like Janine Turner for the first actress but I am not feeling Brigitte at all for this and am on the fence about Pam.

Moose said...

I was just going to say Heather Mills, @gauliose.

Guesser said...

We need to work backwards on this. What important case has been decided recently,that would involve this woman directly or indirectly? Who was an unpopular reality star in at least 2 countries? A wealthy late husband or lover that left her millions? Why is this hard?

Moose said...

Mills - famous for marrying McCartney. Did US reality (and was supposedly a bitch to everyone she worked with).She's 50, so a little younger than Brigitte.

E said...

Turner has a baby with Jerry Jones's son and was his girlfriend for many years if I remember correctly. No doubt she met many of the right people during this time, and unlike other women mentioned here, she doesn't project skank whore

E said...

Heather def has a leg up on any potential competition for geezer dollars

Jon said...

How is Brigitte dating older men? Is she digging up graves? Like a gold digging grave digger?

Also, she became known for Red Sonja and modeling, not marrying Stalone.

Moose said...

Mills got reamed out by the judge in the McCartney divorce case for being less than candid, though she did get 50 Million in the divorce. But perhaps there were some other rulings in the case that went her way?

Guesser said...

Heather Mills is a good guess,but dicreet? That's a stretch. But I guess if the price is right,she could be. But no one in their right mind would marry her.

Nosey Parker said...

#1`- Janine Turner

#2 - Naomi Campbell

Kellikopter said...

She could've slept with the judge who awarded her the money in her divorce? I seem to recall the case going all the way to court, but I could be wrong.

Flashy Vic said...

What's the names of the Chinese bint who was milking Rupert Murdoch's curldled yellowing cream and did the dirty on him behind his withered crooked back. with Tony 'Satan's Bottom Bitch' Blair?


Boy, that's some rancid taste in cock.

Kellikopter said...

If that's the case, I'm surprised she makes that kind of money... You know, being a one-legged hooker and all. 😂

Nosey Parker said...

Not Naomi Campbell. Back to try again.

Huckleberry said...

Heather Mills seems like a good guess. And in regards to that Jeri Ryan guess, I have never wanted a disposable 100k so much in my life!

Whoever it is, what an empowered woman! Yay, feminism!

Notagoodscreenname said...

@Flashy Vic
That was Wendy Deng.

Rosie riveter said...

So... that's... Not actually feminism.

But please, go off

Tricia13 said...

Huckleberry were being sarcastic I think Rosie...

Tricia13 said...

Was*

C’est Vrai said...

“Someone you needed in your corner or on your arm to succeed in politics” none of these women fit this description.

gdaddy said...

Didn’t Mills open a restaurant in England and called it IHOP?

Vita said...

MDAnderson-- you mean Foofy!😂

Heather Mills is an interesting guess.
What about Elizabeth Canalis? I know she was married after Clooney, but its been a few years

MeliticusBee said...

@gauloise - just gotta say that Brigitte indeed "had a baby" but no f'ing way she was "pregnant" at 54 - she had a surrogate

in any case - I think the Heather Mills guess sounds good
isn't she the one who is missing a leg?
probably gets more money for kink

Janine Turner is best guess so far for #1
I think the key to that one is "familiar circles" - has been a republican for a long time, very vocal during several elections going back to Bush and before
if you weren't a republican you wouldn't think she was important...

Guesser said...

@C'est Vrai,Janine Turner is the first woman,she was both a beard for gay conservatives and a go to for fun times as well. The second woman does the same type of thing, but is foreign born and with a snobby reputation. Wendy Deng is an interesting guess,did she ever do reality?

gadfly said...

Janine Turner for first actress; had heard this story about her somewhere before. Only remember it because I was shocked!

C’est Vrai said...

Sorry guesser I don’t personally believe Jeanine aturner has some sort of special pull to crate or break politic careers when no one has heard of her or fro her in decades, I’m just not buying it.

Queen Bee said...

So I googled Janine Turner & she is 56! 1 year older than Brigitte! Not that it has to change anyone's guess, I'm just shocked.

piglet said...

Rachel Hunter was famous as a model before she married Rod Stewart.

Tricia13 said...

She’s still a beauty tho imho. I remember her on GH moons ago when she came on as Laura’s sister

nancer said...

wow, nobody wants to marry heather mills? SHOCKING!!!

HomeyRyder said...

+1 on Heather Mills. She had lawsuit brought by former publicist that judge threw out. Her former nanny also lost lawsuit against Heather. Widely reported as blowing through money, being disliked abroad and in US, Has vegan company now.

Tricia13 said...

Fun fact-she and Alec Baldwin we’re engaged back in the day. Talk about strange bedfellows. Must have been based on angry f***ing lol. She has said funny things about it.

BayAreaGirl said...

I think Flashy's guess of Wendi Deng really fits well. I wouldn't want to get on her bad side. She supposedly "dated" Putin for a hot minute...

BayAreaGirl said...

I recall that due to a quirk in NY family law, Wendi's daughters were supposed to be cut out of ownership of the family business, but Rupert & Wendi reached a settlement that would allow the girls to have in-kind ownership shares as their older siblings, but the girls wouldn't have voting power.

Notagoodscreenname said...

I don’t think Naomi Campbell ever married. #2 was supposed to be married

Lurking said...

Sherilyn Fenn from Twin Peaks.

HushHush said...

Canadian born Linda Evangelista, model. Age 54. I'm not seeing any reality TV, but she's known to be difficult.

In late June 2011, Evangelista filed court papers that revealed her son was fathered by billionaire Frenchman François-Henri Pinault, who by then was the husband of actress Salma Hayek. Settled out of court.

Meredith said...

I want to guess Paulina Porizkova, but I don't know what the lawsuit would be... Hmm

PurplePuffin said...

The first is Janine Turner. I remember photos of her with some politician(s) years ago. Can't remember who, but she is pretty vocal about politics and active in the Republican party, so I am going with her.

The second is a lot harder, but Heather Mills may fit. She has done reality TV in the US and UK and has a nasty reputation. Did she sleep with a judge to get her the $50 million divorce settlement from Paul McCartney? Hard to believe she needs to "work" and are one-legged escorts a thing now?

HushHush said...

Anna Kornikova. Foreign born. 34, still hot. Seems like a gold digger. Was married to Sergei Federov. Was on the biggest Loser.

"I'm like a menu at an expensive restaurant, you can look at me, but you can't afford me."

Meredith said...

Anna was famous for tennis though, and isn't she still married to Enrique?

Brayson87 said...

Yeah not seeing any reality tv for Wendi Deng, not her for #2.

Brayson87 said...

Think of it this way if it's Mills, just how many one-legged escorts are there? You can't just get on the phone and order a one-legged escort, that's something special, a unique experience. ;)

Brayson87 said...

I am shocked by Janine Turner though. WTF was up with actresses in the early 90's with short hair, it was like code or something.

HushHush said...

Janine was cute in Cliffhanger. And Winona Ryder in everything in the 90's.

Meredith said...

You have to have a really good face for short hair... like Charlize Theron or Ashley Judd good.

Maybe that's what makes her an unlikely courtesan, Brayson.

Christina said...

Not Janine Turner -- she's born in the USA and lives on a cattle farm outside of Dallas. Got knocked up by the son of the owner of the Dallas Cowboys and had that kid. I think she's doing just fine via alimony and child support. She also had a 12 episode guest stint on Friday Night Lights in 2008-2009. Also, 50 episodes of her own show Strong Medicine (on Lifetime) 2000-2002. I heard she's not exactly nice but she's worked more than this blind is implying.

texasrose said...

Two parts to this blind Christina. Janine for the first part of blind. Hard to believe dozen rich guys put a one legged woman on $100,000 yearly retainer for sex??? Doubt if it is Mills for the second part.

Christina said...

Texasrose -- Oh, got it. Just re-read it.

My cousin had some dealings with Janine when she was at the height of her popularity. My cousin managed a chocolate store in Seattle. Janine called, ordered a bunch of boxes of chocolate to be sent here and there, and then at the end of the call, it became obvious that she expected all of this gratis. At which point my cousin explained it wasn't free. I think J ended the call at that point.

For part two, never underestimate the power of strange. :-) Could be Mills.

texasrose said...

@Christina - maybe she has skillz

Christina said...

@texasrose Yeah, I bet she does! Hahahaha... She can still bend over.

RobertaJoan said...

Ha! Good thing there is a waiting line in Hell!!

Rude but first class comedy! Gotta laugh, right?

Miss_proper said...

Janine lives around here. She has a daughter with Jerry Jones Jr., who's father owns the Dallas Cowboys. There is some pull there I am sure, but she is a very outspoken conservative speaker, so I just guess it would greatly depend on the thing you wanted to succeed in.... Also she was once engaged to Alec Baldwin... she dodged a bullet there!

Mingbot LaRue said...

#2 Rachel Hunter

MissDavie said...

#1 Janine Turner who made her bones and was somewhat politically powerful during the Bush years.
#2 I think Nosey Parker got it. Naomi Campbell fits. Bitch from Hell but discreet and trustworthy where it counts.

Wendy said...

She definitely could have had a baby if she froze her eggs when she was younger or used a donor egg. People seem to think not producing eggs anymore means your uterus doesn't work, not the case. It's why grandma's can carry their daughters babies. All you need is a fertilized egg.

rabbit said...

Wendy Murdock

rabbit said...

Wendy Deng or Wendy Murdock.

Don't know which is which.

TC said...

Most of these women are over 40 and well past their primes. No way is some old rich guy going spend that kind of money on them, when they can get hotter and younger women.

kbeveryday said...

#2 could be Padma Lakshmi who was married to Salman Rushdie which did make her famous worldwide. Born in India. She was nominated for Outstanding Reality Host for Top Chef. She could have made a fortune through her relationship with billionaire Teddy Fortsmann who set-up a trust for her daughter Krishna and possibly for her. She likely socialized with may wealthy people while she was with Forstmann and could easily circulate in the private club world. The court case could have been when Adam Dell came after her for custody of Krishna.

Any thoughts?

kbeveryday said...

Saw in the DM she could now be engaged to Adam Dell. Perhaps he ponied up and she can get off the courtesan circuit.

Sd Auntie said...

People are speculating that WD is a spy. JT was always on the arm of a politican in the 80's. Super popular and heartbroken when dumped by Baldwin for Kim Basinger. Wanna say with that love boat guy from Alaska.

wisperch said...

How is Janine Turner foreign born if she was born in Nebraska?

Nubian princess said...

I like this guess.

Kellikopter said...

She could also have simply gotten pregnant. It does happen. Not every woman has gone through menopause in their early 50s. My uncle's girlfriend is 53 and due in November.

Kellikopter said...

Just to clarify, they weren't trying to have a baby. In fact, even she thought she was too old to conceive. Surprise! Lol.

Unknown said...

Heather Mills makes sense. she serviced mccartney and got bajillions in the divorce.

Janine Turner played Demi Moore's sister on GH. Her character was named Laura. Just to clear that up...

Thot Crimes said...

You'd think one-legged hookers could charge a premium.

Lisa said...

I think Janine Turner and Padma Lakshmi are the answers. Way to go y'all!
