Today's Blind Items - Real Life

The work she was getting was minimal. Yes, she was landing movies, but they were smaller parts and they were not high paying. People assumed she was rich because of her past fame that rocketed her to A list. That was more than a decade gone at that point and she needed to make money. She landed a movie where she played a stripper. She has always been candid about how she researched the role of stripping but she leaves out a lot. She leaves out the fact that while she was in these clubs, she started meeting men who remembered her glory days. One thing led to another and for the entire run of the film and for a couple years later, she had a group of a half dozen men she met doing research who slept with her for money and not only kept her afloat financially, but one of them died and left her several million dollars in his will. She used that money to finance trips to places other wealthy men might congregate who remembered her and managed to be in three other wills. She also used her connections to land one of the named icons in history who also got her accepted into certain circles after he was gone. She also got two paintings when he died which are worth several million dollars. Now, she has married, which she hadn't done before, but she knows the value of her current marriage and what she gets when he dies. She has already cut his children out of the royalty part or any publishing rights. All they get is some cash. She wants the legacy stuff.

sandybrook said...

+1 to Daryl Hannah and Dancing at the Blue Iguana and JFK Jr.

Tricia13 said...

Played a stripper in Dancing at the Blue Iguana..
Neil Young/His Kids for current situation

Troy Dyer said...

Gina Gershon?
My first thought was Liz Berkley, but I didn’t think it fit...

Brayson87 said...

DH always did seem like a whore.

Count Jerkula said...

When she got railed in Clan of the Cave Bear was the first time I ever saw humans doin doggy style. A true cinema innovator, and the foundation Emilia Clarke's success was built upon.

Brayson87 said...

Dancing at the Blue Iguana also had Jennifer Tilly and Sandra Oh, fun times.

In 2001, actress Daryl Hannah released a one-hour companion documentary, Strip Notes, based on her experience researching her role as a stripper in the film, which is included as an extra on the Dancing at the Blue Iguana DVD. Hannah stars along with Charlotte Ayanna, Elias Koteas, Jennifer Tilly, and Sandra Oh.

1986/87 I worked in a club on Sunset. Waited on Daryl Hannah and Jackson Browne. JB kept to himself, and DH seemed friendly and nice.

Aquagirl said...

She got into 4 wills plus dated JFK Jr.? She must have something amazing to offer.

Brayson87 said...

@Count, Kind of let down we never got that GoT a$$-to-a$$ scene.

Tricia13 said...

Omg Count

Tricia13 said...

That film ....lol I forgot about it.

gauloise said...

I used to think Jackie O was being kind of snobby, but I guess she had the right instinct on DH

Anonymous said...

Hah. I remember that movie. She was FUAD, but she had a look on her face like “um, do I let him?” Then he poked her and roared like a lion. I like the sign language he used when he wanted her to assume the position.

Blond Dahlia said...

She was never a list

Tricia13 said...

Also believed him dating an actress was truly a thorn in her side due to the whole JFK/Marilyn Monroe affair

Moose said...

But Hannah's family is loaded - her mother was married to Jerrold Wexler. I can't imagine she has ever hurt for money.

momo said...

I thought DH was heiress vis a vis Hannah Barbara...

Do Tell said...

Maybe because she was raised wealthy, Darryl doesn't know how to live under a certain level of net worth.

Moose said...

Dancing at the Blue Iguana was made a year after JFK Jr died.

MeliticusBee said...

On another note....
ANOTHER American tourist has died in the Dominican Republic.
for a total of 8 dead and abo0ut 65 sickened in DR alone.

Do Tell said...

How in the hell did she manage to cut Neil's kids out of his publishing rights? his relationship with his kids can't be that good if she was able to do that.

DavidHowesCREBroker said...

The Owner of the Adult Club on Sunset in Hollywood, also owns a couple of clubs in Las Vegas.
He once told me, through the years, he would be watching a TV show and he'd see one of his "Dancers" on the TV show.

In Hollywood, you got to earn money somehow while waiting for your big break!

=)

nancer said...

JFK jr. had a soft spot for her. he's the one she called after jackson browne beat the shit out of her, if i remember correctly. yeah, jackie O hated her guts.
i think she was A list at one time---'cocoon' time, for sure.

B626 said...

Ummm DH must of watched Rae Dawn Chong get violated in Quest for Fire to learn her craft. And Rae is the whole movie nakey except for a little paint.

Anonymous said...

Another blast from the past! RDC taught the cave people missionary style. Ron Perlman tried to rape everyone, male or female.

pegd said...

I would've called Darryl A list at her prime in the 80's. She had Splash, Roxanne and others. I thought she was considered the "it" girl for a short time until Meg Ryan took over.

@ Brayson87

Elias Koteas and Mary Rylance could be brothers

Aquagirl said...

@Chillax: Why would you refer to Darryl Hannah having Aspergers as a ‘fun fact’? I have a family member who has it, and there is nothing fun about it.

Spoiler alert: some of the stuff featured in the blind makes zero sense, especially when written by an "entertainment lawyer".

The publishing rights claim, for instance, is quite interesting. If you read the liner notes and the credits on many albums, you can see that writers set up new publishing companies when there are legal events that affect the royalties. Change of manager? If your manager got a share of your publishing rights, that means a new company. Band splitting up? Same. Marriage, divorce? Same. It's basically easier to set up new terms with a new company than to renegotiate the existing deals, which takes years (Shall I say a decade?).

Neil Young, as a solo artist or a member of CSNY, basically had three publishing companies for his own songs, Broken Arrow (the title from a Buffalo Springfield song), Silver Fiddle (from "See the Sky about to Rain") and Broken Fiddle (which had been used much less often). Then in 2014, around the divorce, he set up a fourth company, Storytone (which was the title of his new album, a very crappy one). Since then, every new song he's released has been published by Storytone Music. If Hannah gets a share of the publishing, that would be through Storytone, and his recent output hasn't been exactly the acme of Young's career.

But Hannah getting the share that Young's children were supposed to get, or the one granted to Pegi Young even after the divorce? Not a fat chance. That would involve the lawyers for Pegi Young, but also for the late actress Carrie Snodgress (who had a son with Young in the early seventies).

Also, something smells funny me in these Darryl Hannah stories. Two out of three children by Neil Young have severe developmental issues, including cerebral palsy. That's why he had set up the Bridge school, for children with special needs like his own ones. The person who writes these blinds basically knows VERY little about Young, as they didn't even mention this, which is common knowledge (unlike the publishing companies stuff) and should be the final nail in Hannah (and Young)'s coffin. Cutting your own children out of your will? That's a dick move. Cutting your special needs children out of your will? That's really a cunt move. If the writer doesn't mention this, it's because they don't know it. And if they don't know it, how are they supposed to be believed?

Vita said...

Aquagirl-- With respect to your family member, I didn't get anything perjorative from Chillax's comment...I think he (she? I dont know!) Was simply using it as "little known trivia," and that is, most likely , due to her "normal" highly public profile over decades.

Darryl did spend a number of years living in an authentic tepee and driving a van operated on used vegetable oil. It is hard to pair that modern environmental hippie image to a black widow, but the blinds about her and neil over the years have been sketchy, at best.

Two of his sons have special needs, I hope to God that she's not cheating them out of their inheritance.

Vita said...

DavidHowesCREBroker-- glad to see you posting again. I enjoy your Vegas and CRE perspective on things!

Robin said...

Maybe it's of no consequence but DH has a missing finger.

Robin said...

Not the whole finger. Just up to and I think not including the first knuckle.

AlleyKat said...

I always felt sad for EB...she showed a lot of early promise and then blew it with Showgirls. Saying that who knows why she took sue a low rent trashy role.

AlleyKat said...

Don't a couple of NY's kids have cerebral Palsy? The lowest of the low...robbing the disabled when your already rich!

hunter said...

What?!?! When did part of her finger go missing? Was it like a Lohan situation?

Thanks Count - thanks for taking me back, forgot ALL ABOUT THAT.

Sus said...

Another BS blind. Thank you, Angela. This site is a joke.

Guesser said...

@Angela,a lot of people cut disabled children out of wills. This is because 1 it is put in a trust to make sure medical needs are met.2 estate taxes would greatly reduce the inheritance,3, a disabled person is more easily taken advantage of. Also,you of course know Carrie Snodgrass had to take Neil to court to provide proper support for their son,his illness and Neil effectively ended her career. Having said that,some parts of this blind are not accurate regarding Hannah, but judging by Love/ Cobain, once Neil passes we can expect blinds for the next 25 years.

Angela said...

Young is definitely not a saint. For all his big talk about trust and friendship, he has a rather disappointing track record on keeping his word. And David Crosby himself has accused Daryl Hannah of being a gold digger.

That said, there's indeed something very weird about a 58-year-old "predator" (per Crosby) taking control of a 73-year-old musician. This isn't a May to December romance, it's mid-November to early December. They're both adults, and Neil Young has never been known for being pussywhipped. Their romance hasn't really affected his music. His track record has been quite spotty for 25 years, and her involvement with him hasn't resulted in her adding something else than some lousy artwork to an archival release. Brian Wilson's wife, for instance, the one that was portrayed by Elizabeth Banks in the biopic, may have forced him to tour despite a deteriorating health (physical and mental) in the last few years and to make questionable artistic choices. Neil Young hasn't changed styles or switched to more commercial releases because of Hannah.

So, once again, I'd put the source of this blind as "Himmmm", who tried at one point in his career to be a professional musician (and who failed epically in that regard). He tends to see the world in Spinal Tap terms, where behind every wrong decision by one of his musical heroes, there's a woman to blame. You had it with Kurt and Courtney, you had it with Chris and Vicky, and now it's Neil and Daryl.

Brayson87 said...

Jeez wet blanket, are you sticking up for Courtney Love now? Isn't this your day to be trumpeting how innocent OJ is since he was cleared in a court of law?

HouellebecqGurl said...

Darryl Hannah was def A list for a time in the 80s. She was an it girl, for sure.
Neil Young has ALWAYS been a POS, so IDC if DH rips him off.

PookieTwo said...

Umm, Darryl's stepfather was a billionaire from Chicago, it was this wealthy connection that led her to travel in the same circles as JFK Jr and eventually meet him. She'd have no need to fleece older men for money to make ends meet.

Courtney is definitely somebody I don't like, who doesn't deserve the attention she gets, but accusing her of murder is typical manbaby thinking. "There is this musician that I love, he's the BEST musician ever. I even have his poster in my dorm room. But, hey, he kills himself!!!! No, that can't be true. No, that's impossible. Even with his heroine addiction, his chronic back pain, his depression, which he wrote about in his diaries. No, I can't believe it. It must come from this witch, this evil woman he had married." If people can't see the deathwish that was right at the heart of the music created by Cobain, they're definitely idiots. But it's so easy to put all the things that are wrong in his life on the influence of a Jezabel.
Also, Courtney Love was a really good actress in The People vs. Larry Flynt and Man on the Moon. She's not as untalented as some claim.

By the way, Cobain's suicide note quoted a line by Neil Young. I don't think that Courtney Love knows Young's catalogue well enough to be able to forge such a suicide note.

Don't Mind Me... said...

Just because a step-parent is loaded doesn't mean that they're going to support the spouse's adult children in luxury.

Brayson87 said...

+1 Don't Mind, Stepfathers and stepdaughters don't always have the most healthy relationships.

Rosie riveter said...

Oh, it's not like it's ALS or MS. There's a few people I know with Asperger's that would be thrilled to announce their FUN FACT.

Mahogany1 said...

Demi Moore?

Unknown said...

Selma Hayek. Stripper in from Dusk till Dawn.

Aquagirl said...

@Rosie: Are you trying to be funny? Because you’re just being insulting and that’s really not okay.

Aquagirl said...

@Vita: Thanks for your comment, but talking about a person’s illness is in no way a ‘fun fact’. We had a recent blind here a few days ago & the topics of fibromyalgia and MS were discussed. It’s totally inappropriate to make fun of or doubt someone’s illness. I know that your mother was ill for many, many years. How would you feel if someone called that a ‘fun fact’?

Sd Auntie said...

all three have CP. one is nonverbal. not sure about the other two

Vita said...

Point made, Aquagirl, and apologies. Sorry for the further hurt.

Unknown said...

Thanks GOD, someone with a bit of intelligence on this site.

Rosie riveter said...

I was being, quite literally, literal.
And I'll hardly be shamed on this point.. please consider spending your energy elsewhere.
Like, perhaps ¡outrage! at all the other highly offensive things here?
This time tho, you've missed the mark, sis

Dumblesnore said...

This is who I thought of as well...

Count Jerkula said...

Brayson: i never got to witness an A2A in real life, but i did get to see 2 tweaker bims eat each others butts. That was nice.

Count Jerkula said...

Duh: "Ayla! uh UHH!"

Chillax said...

I meant it as a piece of trivia or nugget of useless information. Fun fact was a poor choice of words. 🤦🏼‍♀️

Vita said...

Chillax- I got ya, sorry for for the awkward defense...that's why I stay out of the usual kerfuffles!

If she is responsible for cutting his special needs kids out of anything then she is a cold hearted bitch. he is being an idiot, too.

TwoDots said...

Handy hint: if you think the site is a joke, then don’t read here. I’d assume you wouldn’t want to waste your time. 🤦🏼‍♀️

Substance D said...

So what's with Young's sperm making all these 'tards? Is it the cool 60's drug shit, maybe? Oh, there were consequences to being a fucking deadbeat hippie. Who knew?
Of course you don't want developmentally delayed adults to have a credit card, so a woman who knows what to do with money would be convenient. She's in her late fifties and in the end of opening credits/key cameo phase of her career, just before the last face lift shatters when she tries to smile.
NY's father was something like the Walter Winchell of Canada. These people are all different life forms. Not hoi polloi at all. They do as they please. They even have the fix in when called home to hell. It will be like minimum security "work farm/resort" for these shits.

AwkwardTurtle said...

I thought of Heather Graham who showed back up in the limelight to play a stripper in The Hangover. I don't think she is married though.

Jennacheryl said...

I think if 20 + years after you make a movie and people still remember you, that makes you permanent A

Blue Margarita said...

@Angela you're such a know it all kill joy, go play by yourself someplace else
