Lainey - Cheap & Crafty 11/19

From laineygossip yesterday -
Cheap & Crafty
No shortage of classless behaviour in Hollywood, and above the maybe gaybe speculation and the drug drama, it’s these stories that are the most shocking: How can the privileged behave so poorly? Especially someone who sounds so elegant? Whose record has been spotless and golden? Then again, it’s always the ones you least expect. In her case however it’s become an M.O., a trail of cheapness wherever she goes. So you know when you stay at a hotel, if the soap and bath products happen to be on the higher end, it’s customary to ask for a few refills and take some home? This of course is standard behaviour for US…because we’re broke! But how about a busy, working actress, married to a busy working man, both with several projects on the go – does it then become less acceptable? Almost shameful? I think so yes. And still she does it wherever she goes – on junkets, on promotional tours, whenever she’s at a hotel, she orders up extras: extra shampoo, extra lotion, even extra bathrobes, taking EVERYTHING home… yes, even the bathrobes. The bathrobes that are washed then used again by every guest staying in that suite, she insists on bringing it all with her. Including the gifts too. She is also not shy with special requests. Lighting fixtures, humidifiers, strollers – kinda major items you’d think would be on loan, right? Wrong. She packs those up with her too. The woman leaves NOTHING behind. The question is: what does she do with it all? Would you believe she gives it to her staff? She saves the little soaps and gels and crafts them into small baskets and presents them to the nannies and the housekeepers as bonuses! Can you imagine? Can you imagine a Christmas gift basket full of hotel shampoos and conditioners? I mean How.F&cking.Tacky.

She says today that it is NOT Kate Winslet or Cate Blanchett. Hmmm... does that hint that it is another British Academy Award actress? Perhaps Helen Mirren or American-turned-Brit Gwyneth Paltrow? For some reason I am thinking Michelle Pfeiffer though. Leave your guess below!

* Top suspect: Rachel Weisz

This one is hard. so many could fit the profile. an actress, with at least one child, married to a busy working man. Assuming the husband is NOT an actor, we could narrow it. Gwynnie is a good guess. also, Julia Roberts. I will post more later - maybe Lainey will offer some hints.

I like Julia Roberts! I missed that part about having a child.

Lainey just eliminated Madonna and Julia R. I am thinking Gwynnie is our girl. Cant think of anyone else who would fit, especially with the hint of "elegant" "spotless and golden" - unless its more of a B level actress we just have not thought of.

Kaie Holmes? For some reason I thought I heard this before about the Cruises...

sistah2 said...

Good guess on Katie Holmes, could be. aomeone else guessed Jen Garner. could be. Not alot of good clues so far.
Happy Thanksgiving!
Did anyone else hear Kohls is open at 4am on Black Friday? thats nuts!!

sistah2 said...

ok, Gwynnie just eliminated. wow, i really thought it was her.. we are down to Katie H and Jen G. boring.

Blind Item Exposer said...

Totally Jennifer Garner then - good call. Could be Katie Holmes but we all know how she spends money very lavishly and does not seem to be cheap these days with anything in my opinion. JG!

sistah2 said...

OK, now the consensus is Catherine Zeta Jones. I am picturing her and Jennifer Garner on this one.

sistah2 said...

wow! Lainey just eliminated Jen G. so is it CZJ? at this point do we care?

sistah2 said...

CZJ eliminated. only guesses left are Jennifer connelly and marcia gay harden. boring. who cares.
I was going to say Keri Russell, but she won the golden globe, not the oscar..and Lainey is implying oscar winner..

I doubt its Rachel Weisz.

Lainey pretty much conf'd it's Rachel Weisz yesterday. In the "TIFF Blooms" post, in regards to Rachel, she stated, "I wonder if she regifts her clothes for Christmas?"

haha today she pretty much confirmed this one to be Rachel Weisz when talking about taking bath products from her London hotel. She says she wonders if Rachel Weisz would be proud.
