Blind Item #10

This actress is probably A- list. All of you know her. Her company is tanking badly right now. Since the peak, it has dropped roughly 70% in value. People were just looking for a quick buck and treated it like a piggy bank.

Blake?

sandybrook said...

nah Blake lost hers years ago.

J said...

Someone selling shit to fools.

sandybrook said...

Drew Barrymore's cosmetic company?

Vita said...

Fabletics? Kate Hudson?

Zebra Seasoning said...

I'm going to go with Alba. Goop, sadly, is higher than A-.

Amartel said...

Goop hasn't had a hit movie in a long time so the A- is justified. Kind, even. She's all about her company now so I don't think it's her.

Heather said...

I'm with the fabletics guess. Typical PE backing, open a ton of stores, pull the equity out. bankruptcy in 5 years.

Unknown said...

Sandra Bollock.

Garner and her baby food

Sea Hag said...

Goop hasn't had a hit in years? She did just fine with Marvel. One part of a big ensemble, and not the biggest part, but definitely hit movies. I suspect that's about all she wants to work in films anymore - a little here, a little there.

BigSwingingRock said...

Sounds like the Honest Company. "HER company".

Brayson87 said...

Fabletics is still opening new stores.

What is the science behind The Goop Lab's claims?

Goop actually comes from what Harvey used to leave in her hair.

hunter said...

NOT Alba - that company is run by a shit ton of experienced and qualified executives.

Fabletics is a better guess, Goop is a vanity project and seems to make money.

Not sure when Fabletics "peaked" though, seems to me that never occurred

hunter said...

The "Honest Company" may sell some dubiously "honest" products but it is a ginormous financially stable company that makes a shit ton of products selling to the mass market.

I am in a similar industry and I have never heard them as anything other than legit.

Amartel said...

She's been in a hit or two recently but she didn't carry them. Ensemble pieces.
A- only because of that Oscar that she shouldn't have won but for nepotism.

Count Jerkula said...

Fabletics peaked when Hudson was in all those commercials. Totally jumped the shark when she was replaced with Lovato who they had to shoot from wonky angles with lame tricks like an arm over her gunt and the like. Also, it is a crap subscription service, designed to rope in rubes w/ forgotten rebills.

I totally don't get Alba. She was 'discovered' by James Cameron and co for DARK ANGEL and was a horrific actress. She was pretty to look at, unique exotic (such a mix you couldn't peg her) but she can't act her way out of a paper bag and yet kept getting roles off her looks. Ugh. Boring. Someone with a career and riches handed to them. At least with models, we applaud the bone structure and body in PICTURES. They are what they are. Alba was handed a tv and film career etc for looking like she looked when she had ZERO aptitude or talent for it. Ditto goes for having a 'vision' and brand you just smile big for and then real professionals do all the work and make you a further fortune.

Alba's company has had numerous lawsuits because its not nearly as ethical as it claims and had to recall products for mold and contamination

LL said...

Reese?

ZZZedMaster said...

Definitely not alba must be some white women.They suck at business then complain about unequal treatment as an excuse to cover up their failure

Unknown said...

You hate all women or solely white women?

Brayson87 said...

I thought ZZZ was female.

J said...

Gen-Z aka ZZZed is a racist. Only idea morning through night is skin color.

Do Not Lie said...

Brayson, you are WICKEDLY FUNNY! HW's goop and Paltrow's hair follicles combined to arrive at the most effective combination known to modern science!!!!!

Do Tell said...

Gwyneth sold her company sometime ago. I think she is a consultant for it now.

Unknown said...

how about Kristen bell and hello bello?

Jeweled Skye said...

What about BeyoncĂ© and her gratuitous box of clothing give aways…. better than - and more sought after - than the Oscar goodie bags. I've only heard of the giveaways... nobody purchasing it and its not showing up on anyone in paps pics.

Jeweled Skye said...

whoops, sorry, Bey is not an actress... am NOT considering voice work for Lion King.... maybe her lip syncing? lol

tinydancer61 said...

Kate Hudson and Fabletics. The whole concept was so shady. You barely hear anything about it anymore.

Sd Auntie said...

Fabletics was pieces of crap. Tore easily and not durable. Alba is man's idea of an actress. Not very talented but very pretty and had lots of sex appeal. Friends like Honest and Goop junk.

Post Cards From The Edge said...

sarah jessica parker and her shoe company?

Do Tell said...

Didn't ScarJo have a popcorn business over in France? What happened with that?

Vita said...

LL might have it with Reese and Draper James. The line "All of you know her" might have been a huge clue, lol! Anyway, it popped back into my head hours later while paying bills.

MoodyJBey said...

Wtf are you talking about? IvyPark is doing very well

Clark Green said...

Alba. Well she didn't own that big a slice to begin with. But the real exec's there bailed a while back. The VC firm is milking it until they can unload it. They definitely lost their early momentum. Even Target booted them to the curb.
