I love shopping in Mexico. You peso much less.

herbert arnold said...

the knowledge that my life is much more fulfilling than rich and famous celebrities who seem to value whats worthless.

sandybrook said...

MDJ wasn't himmmm after all.

Moose said...

What I've learned - you can talk Pride, and Obergefell, and Pete Buttigieg all you want, Hollywood (let alone the US) is still a long long way from being gay friendly.

Alf Landon said...

What I've learned, some people are still obsessed with their gayness when almost no one gives a damn. It is self loathing issue.

smiller2000 said...

I’ve learned about kneepads and all the other celebrity friendly publications, that basically only report what their publicists want you to believe, not the actual truth.

Unknown said...

Well I bought Dr. Mary's Monkey ( or whatever it's called) based off a blind and reader's comments......still haven't read it yet

momo said...

OH UNKNOWN read, finish and then follow up with LEE AND ME

Boldblonde said...

I've been reading this blog since the early days 2006/2007 and what I've learned is that, I'm glad I'm not a celebrity/famous. I also would never let my child be in the entertainment business.

@Boldblonde-SAME!

kirk said...

That Hollywood is extremely f*cked up

Brayson87 said...

That CDAN has the best readers and commenters :)

EponymousAnonymoud said...

Yachting.

Boldblonde said...

@Brayson87 you're so cute!

yepthatsme said...

YACHTING! Now whenever I see a celeb on a boat of any kind, I am immediately suspicious!

Do Tell said...

Being first is worth killing for.

Tricia13 said...

😂

Lady Muck said...

Yachting / Yacht Girls - I had no idea that this even existed. Mind blown and glad I'm not in that world where it's even a career option.

By the way what is kneepads?

Former CNN Anchor Candy Crowley said...

@do tell:

It's a grave concern of mine :)

Do Tell said...

Kneepads = People magazine, because they will do anything to get an exclusive with a celebrity.

Do Tell said...

LOL Candy!

Lady Muck said...

@Do Tell - OK I get it now - just too innocent a mind :)

VikingSong said...

I've learned that mentals and shut-ins believe anything they read online to be fact without any evidence even when posted anonymously.

Alma's Daughter said...

Just recently I learned Miley tried to rehash the beef between Nicki and Cardi on her latest music release and no one paid attention. Brought a smile to my face.

Unknown said...

@Momo, will do!

Do Tell said...

I've also learned that even the plainest and most unremarkable of so-called celebrities have their fair share of unbalanced stans who will go to the mat for people they will never even meet.

Rosie riveter said...

I've learned that, while it's an attractive lot, there's an alarming amount of group think.. and the desire to feel included (within this popularity contest) outweighs having the courage to stand up for what is RIGHT.
Basically, the (sad) world we live in. Just more attractive.

Jesse the Mind said...

There is a house in New Orleans...

Boldblonde said...

yesss the house!!! @Jesse

yepthatsme said...

Wait, the house is still there or was it burned down? Or is it like the house on the haunted hill, #nondestroyable?

Thorne said...

The house in New Orleans, and I do not care whether it's true. It's a great story.
And this was the first place I remember reading about Epstein way back in the day.

momo said...

There is a neighborhood. I lived in it. My son had an apt. which had a perfect view of the particle acceleratore that shouldn't have existed at the time. My daughter did a coup;le of years at the children's hospital that was adjacent. Cancer is big business and the illustrious Dr. Ochsner was very much behind it, so to speak.

TeeHee@U said...

+1 @VikingSong...But, I do think ENTY has some connections throughout the industry and definitely does their bidding at the expense of other entertainers that ENTY does not like/ his tipsters do not like for whatever personal reason. Meaning that I think ENTY can be pretty biased on certain people (coughEmiliaClarkecough). But...it is all about shits and giggles....and apparently.... anal sex on here.... :p

pinot grigio said...

That AJ Benza is a HUGE fan and if you read this AJ, I think you're my gossip soul mate...

Brayson87 said...

@Boldblonde, No you're cute! :)

V said...

Not just about the yachting but all the ways to spot the carefully hidden ads that someone is up for sale (138 Water, certain stuff on TMZ)... there's something about visual cues at fashion shows but I can't remember if I got that one here or elsewhere. It's all sick and fascinating.

shakey said...

I've learned that famous people are pretty f'd up; pretty much every male attached to the industry is a pedophile and if they're not, they're gay, or they're gay pedophiles; conspiracy theories abound for everything; reality and Youtube "stars" have become the new celebrity; people still care wayyyy too much about who posts first.

And I've finally learned to accept there's no going back to the format before, when Ent would write fun stories to read or bring up something that's happened in the news for discussion. Just blinds blinds blinds, some are from inside info but others seem to be made up from different articles across the internet. I prefer the inside info ones.

I've learned a lot of stuff fictional and non-fictional!

1. I am glad I left Hollywood behind. The 18 hour days, 6 days a week were a grind.
2. I think I figured who Hmmmm is.
(Not disclosing. So don't ask!)
PS: I'm good at keeping confidential information confidential. (C'Mon, I do that
everyday.)
3. I learned that if you have an endless Viagra hard on, dip your penis in ice water
to relieve your erection. (Why I remember that, I have no idea!)
(Maybe it's good to know in case of an emergency!)
4. I'm NOT the Oldest Reader (as I have claimed); and I am NOT the baldest.
(Probably, I'm the dumbest -- Since I have to read Tricia13's posts first to even
get a clue as to who is who!
5. Best wishes to all!

=)

Second this..gotta use the brain to parse through the fake and real blinds and even then they might be a little biased due to who enty doesn't like. AND a lot of people on here don't understand how autoimmune diseases work and it drives me insane.

BRAD PITT said...

I've learned that Amber Heard likes cock in her ass

Guest777 said...

I've learned that I'm not the only one 'awake'. Makes me feel better to know I'm not alone...

TheBPlot said...

Conspiracy theorists are alive and well. And there are lots of people with way too much time on their hands.

Large Marge said...

Have learned so much. YACHTING, Kneepads, MV, Hef's basement vault, old Hollywood dish, Himmmmm tales, that Dan Schneider is probs gonna fry in hell, so much. This site is my candy dish.

Mahogany1 said...

Recently the rum story.

Jim Corrigan said...

How much of a douche Don Henley is, and what the song from the 80s was really about.

MattDaddy said...

That I’m apparently a freak-mutant for never having cheated. And being crazy enough to think that not cheating is normal!

Sd Auntie said...

everyone yachts in Hollywood.

Katelyn said...

That I’m not alone in a lot of my daily struggles that I go through and it’s all right to open up and be honest.

Goliprice Clarpuff said...

That Arab men like to take dumps on yachters chests.

Drewholtaus said...

That there is no age limit on yachting...see marla maples etc

Sunshine Child said...

I'll never get over reading what really happened to Jo-Beth Williams from Poltergeist, its destroyed any films with kids in it for me

Sophia S said...

The term "Dubai porta potties"...LOL.

Sophia S said...

@Sunshine Child - I think you mean what really happened to Heather O'Rourke in Poltergeist? Jo-Beth was an adult/played the mom. Heather was the little girl/child actress.

Sunshine Child said...

@Sophia S - I do! Sorry I had quickly googled the Poltergiest to write down the name because all I could remember was CarrieAnn - if thats even correct! Thank you :)
