Lainey - The Other Woman Doesn't Work

New Lainey!

The Other Woman Doesn't Work

Not that she was destined to become the next Angelina Jolie – not even close – but since B List and reality stars are all the rage these days, who’s to say she would not have had a career revival as the matriarch for a new generation? Or a movie of the week once every few weeks?

The problem is her love life. She is in love with a man who has a wife. A man who comes from a legendary family. A man who is supposed to be a bastion of fidelity, with strong values and a wholesome image. This is not the man who should be carrying on an affair with an actress, hidden away in hotels, picked up on the sly by his security team, given a code name by his people. Her birthday is noted in his assistant’s organiser, it’s as official as it gets, only it’s also the best kept secret, and he intends to keep it that way which is why she’s only allowed to work sparingly. Which means guest appearances only and no long standing commitments, lest she reappear on the radar and invite a little curiosity, potentially blowing their cover.

She lives by his rules because she thinks what they have is real and forever but not surprisingly, he has his eye on someone else. Almost her doppelganger. Some say she will be replaced. Is cheating hereditary?


* Update July 18 - Lainey has eliminated Michael Douglas, Krista Allen, Martin Sheen, Tiger Woods, Tara Reid, Justine Bateman, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Minnie Driver, Ben Stiller, Warren Beatty, Jeff Bridges, Jamie Gertz, Nicolas Cage with Tiffani Thiessen, Robert Downey Jr, Dennis Quaid, Donald Trump, Darryl Hannah, Ron Howard, Heather Locklear, Emilio Estevez, Kevin Costner, Tim McGraw, Peter Fonda, Donny Osmond, Al Gore, Sienna Miller, Josie Bissett.

No thoughts at all yet?

My first thought on the guy - legendary family, bastion of fidelity, strong values,wholesome image, was Donny Osmond. But that doesnt fit with the is cheating hereditary bit. Thats more Kennedy!?

Anonymous said...

...and the girl - someone from 90210 -'matriarch for a new generation'. Jennie Garth or Gabrielle Carteris? Both were in Dancing with the stars.

House of Brat said...

It's a Republican!

Anonymous said...

That was my first thought - that the guy is a politician. Maybe Ah-nold?! He's married to a Kennedy (legendary family) but the way its worded it says HE COMES FROM a legendary family. I also don't get the hereditary comment, if it were him. Hmmm.....

I didn't have time to post my thoughts but thought of the Sheens. Charlie Sheen is a notorious cheater so I thought of someone in his family, Emilio Estevez or Charlie Sheen. Also was thinking one of the Baldwin brothers. I am on my way to check now to see what Lainey has said today (if anything).

blurry vice said...

Thinking about it again, I think that the man is not as famous as the woman. The poster above may be onto something with the politicians. Maybe. Or maybe some random business type.
The B-list reality star could be anyone. Possibly being the matriarch of a new generation, I am thinking someone older. It's not Jennie Garth or Gabrielle Carteris though, in my opinion.

Anonymous said...

...but wasnt there talk, with the new 90210 coming up, that one of the girls from the original could be playing a mother this time round? or certainly more of a matriarchal role - I looked up Jennie Garth, and read she is going in, in an occasional role as a counsellor.
Definitely the guy isnt an actor, more a politician, what with security teams around him. But I'm in the UK -I have no idea who your lesser known politicians are!

House of Brat said...

I don't think it's Ahnold, but I do think it's a Republican. Probably one who has father and mother who were in politics and has a lot of money that he's made on his own regardless how much of it he'd spend on higher ambitions. Donny Osmond is probably pretty close when you think about "wholesome."

Sara said...

I doubt that it's Jennie Garth. She has had her own show and that gives her a lot more attention than being a guest star. Plus she is married and has like 3 kids. I get the feeling the woman is single. I have no idea who the guy is. I thought of Tom Hanks first but I doubt it's him.

Anonymous said...

What about Jeb Bush?

Anonymous said...

Lori Loughlin from "Full House" was signed to be mom on new 90210, but I'm stuck as to the guy. I thought perhaps Martin Sheen but Lainey has eliminated him.

blurry vice said...

Let's move away from the 90210 castmembers as guesses. It's NOT Jennie Garth or Lori Loughlin.

BTW - Lainey has eliminated one of our guesses again. (My guess of Martin Sheen). She usually does!

House of Brat said...

Shannen Doherty!

Colts#1Filly said...

I read this comment from BrainCandy on the E boards and I think they may be on to something. In parts it reads:

"...This has to be a political family because, let's face it, how many Hollywood families are famous for fidelity, strong values, and wholesome image--and it would probably have to be Canadian.

Justin Trudeau is from a legendary Canadian family, he supports lots of causes like the environment and education, his mom had an affair with Ted Kennedy, Justin is now running for office, but he's also hung out with celebrity types and he was even in a movie (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0846011/)"

The poster didn't have a guess on who the actress may be but their guess that it is about Justin Trudeau is really good, I think!

duffgrl said...

I don't know who the man is but I agree it's not Jennie Garth or Lori Loughlin who are married. I think it's someone who is single: someone at this guy's beck-and-call.

blurry vice said...

Probably the Canadian dude, since Lainey is all about Canadians. Snooze!

veronica said...

Lainey is all about the Canadians because Lainey IS Canadian!

House of Brat said...

I doubt it is the Canadian (Trudeau) because she probably wants to avoid politics if at all possible. If it were, people could easily attack her for fronting for one of the political parties there, right?

Since she can't vote in the US, it would be only a gossip issue for her. No one could accuse her of spreading rumors to benefit someone in Canadian politics.

Anonymous said...

Now she excluded Tiger Woods. Did he actually come from a legendary family? I'm having a hard time getting all 3 points (legendary family, descended from cheater(s), but has wholesome values/image himself) to line up in one person.

Justin Trudeau is about the best guess anyone has come up with so far.

simplysamantha said...

Okay, so knowing how Lainey does things on her site, when she posts a blind item, she tends to leave clues behind, so if excluding Tiger Woods was one, then what about someone in sports? A bigshot sports star would have an assistant, if they were a hot commodity, like Beckham, perhaps?

Colts#1Filly said...

It's interesting how Lainey is eliminating people. As I mentioned before, I was reading the E board on this blind item and Tiger Woods (along with Sheen and Douglas) were all guesses many people were going with (along with Trudeau). It's almost like she's eliminating based off what she "may" be reading on the boards - not necessarily clues to who the person is.

Ps. By the way, I love this blind item roundup site the best - go Sistas!

House of Brat said...

Gee, I just thought she had to deny Tiger Woods because she mentioned him yesterday in her intro, which caused the boards to go wild in speculation. The end result being an easy denial for her and no new clue for us.

Anonymous said...

I also think its a sports figure at least thats what I get with legendary it could be political but my guess is sports..Im hung up on the chick if who is old enough to be a matriach for a new generation and was once on the radar. This is hard and its driving me crazy LOL!

Anonymous said...

I'm also thinking the fella's a political figure or an athlete. Maybe Wayne Gretzky? Although I don't think there's been any infidelity in his family so that's probably a bad guess. Eli Manning? Some race car driver - there are some legendary families in that sport.

Lainey (if you're reading) please drop some more hints or tell us how close we are and of any similarities!!

Anonymous said...

I think it is a politician, but I don't think it's Trudeau. He's only been married for about 2 years. Not that that isn't enough time to cheat, but it's not enough time to have a long standing mistress, have her give up her career, and then think about replacing her.

Mel Gibson and Britney Spears?

I wonder if Lainey is providing another clue in the Its Always Something Else - for example, the talent that will be attending. Probably not though - she's probably just trying to create awareness for the event - but I thought I'd throw that out there as a possibility.

momfixit said...

This is really hard. But I was just reading Page Six today and read that Winona Ryder is cast as Dr. Spock's mother. Could it be her? Nothing much in the news about her lately.

momfixit said...

More thoughts - "...matriarch of a new generation..."; the current Star Trek cast being THE new generation??? Thus, Winona Ryder?

blurry vice said...

Wow, Winona Ryder fits with that clue. But what about the comments about being B-list/reality? Winona used to be a huge star back in the 90's. And, who is the other man?

momfixit said...

I have a feeling the man will be a mystery for a long time since they're being careful of exposing him via the media. I looked at pics of Winona at Getty Images and she's always unescorted. I think Lainey just mentioned B-listers and reality stars within the context of what the rage is nowadays, so her Star Trek stint is actually a good one for her since it's better. Also, I just saw Little Women on HBO - makes me think Lainey meant we're still reminded of her through her old movies (Dracula, etc) if they become "movie of the week." It fits, right? Now...who looks like her (doppelganger)?

House of Brat said...

Except Winona IS going to be in the next Star Trek movie. It sounds like this woman passed up the chance to be in something big.

momfixit said...

I just have too much time on my hands right now (I've got a minute left)...anyway, I was wrong about Winona not being escorted in events. She has been dating Blake Sennett, a musician, but it doesn't look that serious so Winona is still a possibility. Also, if I'm correct -Keira Knightley as her look-alike?

blurry vice said...

A lot of people over at fanchitchat are guessing Daphne Zuniga and Robert Kennedy Jr. for this, since they were runored in the past to have had a long running affair.

Daphne IS a brunette, as are most of the women Lainey has eliminated. And RFK Jr. fits with the description.

Who is the doppelganger then?

Rhynn*~ said...

I don't think she was ruling out Tiffani Thiessen today -- I think she was giving it away. She just said that Nic Cage wasn't the one stepping out with her...sometimes it's all in the wording, right? Just something to think about.

Anonymous said...

Rhynn - I think you are absolutely right. Lainey is very very clever with her wording and she doesn't make many mistakes. She did not eliminate either of them she just eliminated them as a couple. Leaving the astute reader to infer that one of them is involved.

Anonymous said...

Could it be Kurt Russell?
He comes from a legendary family.
Even though they aren't married, I've heard him refer to Goldie as his wife. He was a Disney kid which is a wholesome image.
Goldie is a matriarch. Kate is the spitting image of Goldie, so maybe thats a reference to Goldie not the other woman and Kate has had many hookups.

blurry vice said...

Lainey eliminated RDJ today - assuming Robert Downey Jr. I am taking the fact that she gave three initials "RDJ" as a big hint towards "RFK". I'm going with RFK/DZ.

blurry vice said...

BTW Tiffani Thiessen is happily married. Yes Lainey was questionable with her wording, but I am taking that as an elimination.

blurry vice said...

More on Daphne Zuniga - she was in the movie Spaceballs and does the animated voice for the TV series(ties with reference to new generation - space related). Also she was on Family Ties in the 80's (refernce to Justine Bateman). She is actively involved in environmental issues, as is RFK. She goes to the same environmental events that he goes to. On her website she has links to his book etc.
And RFK fits with the family, etc. and the "hereditary cheating" comment.

blurry vice said...

DZ also has had guest starring roles on One Tree Hill and Nip/Tuck, and she has done a few TV movies.

Anonymous said...

I'm curious as to why Shannon Dougherty hasn't been discussed (or ruled out by Lainey, I know I've emailed her about it). She was B List, plus had a reality show (dumping Shannon or something like that). No clue as to the man though, RFK Jr. is a great guess, I've even thought about the Bush's, Shannon is a republican supported and did campaigning if I'm not mistaken.

Anonymous said...

Zuniga is currently appearing in five episodes of the CW hit show One Tree Hill for the 5th season playing a glamorous and intimidating but manipulative business executive with a cruel streak, who is discovered to be her mom at the end of the episode aired on January 15, 2008 and now works with Brooke Davis (Sophia Bush).[citation needed]

From Wikipedia - playing a MOM!

Momfixit said...

Interesting! Who would be Daphne's doppelganger?

bc said...

Jennifer Goodwin as her doppelganger? Don't know if she has any connection whatsoever with RFK Jr., but they do have a similar look.

I am loving this site, btw. . .

blurry vice said...

Today I was thinking Kristin Davis, also her Melrose Place co-star. But probably not.

Anonymous said...

Shannen Doherty and Ron Howard (go back to 1982)- Howard from acting family, actor/director/producer like many of the "nots", vague hint in Lainey about Rome where Howard currently filiming Tom Hanks movie.

kellysirkus said...

Shannon Doherty and Ron Howard

that is just so many levels of ICK

blurry vice said...

Today Lainey said look for clues. Then she eliminated Darryl Hannah for this BI. DH dated JFK Jr. That is a clue that we are on the right path.

blurry vice said...

Ron Howard was eliminated today. I didn't think he fit at all, BTW, just pointing it out for those above who guessed him.

Anonymous said...

Aha! Was browsing another site and look what I found:"This American politician is sitting on a ticking time bomb. If his secret(s) get out he may as well kiss his chances for a November victory bye bye. He may have kissed his girlfriend goodbye several weeks ago, the questions remains he much longer she will remain silent. Hint: It’s NOT Bill Clinton."
John McCain is their answer

Rhynn*~ said...

No one has mentioned the Sutherlands yet -- Keifer and Donald (father). Possible??

Rhynn*~ said...

Found this article regarding Kiefer and Donald and, specifically, this quote regarding Donald:

"Donald had himself walked out of the family home a decade earlier to pursue an affair with Jane Fonda."

For the link to the article, click on my name.

I watched Fools Gold last night and thought -- how did he slip under the radar?? Just something to think about -- I wouldn't close the books on this one just yet.

Rhynn*~ said...

Nevermind...Kiefer isn't even married. Oh well!

Anonymous said...

I could buy RFK as the answer to this one, except is he really a "bastion of fidelity, with strong values and a wholesome image"?

House of Brat said...

RFK Jr was charged with a heroin possession 25 years ago. Why would he qualify for a "wholesome image?" Besides, he's on his second marriage. He married his second wife IMMEDIATELY after divorcing his first, which means they started seeing each other BEFORE he was divorced.

Anonymous said...

The Kennedys are not bastions of fidelity. They're bastions of INfidelity!

Anonymous said...

Lainey just eliminated Josie Bissett from Melrose - sounds like she's confirming its Daphne Zuniga!

Anonymous said...

John Edwards and Rielle Hunter - Hunter's IMBD credits include the movie "Billy Bob and Them" which goes to Laniey's opening comment "not that she was desined to be the next Angelina". Enquirer just broke the story.

blurry vice said...

Hmmm, but we've known about John Edwards' girlfriend for along time. Could be them. But what about the hints about the man's family? That cheating is hereditary, but from upstanding family etc.

Colts#1Filly said...

Ok, I'm confused. Today, under Smutty Tingles, Lainey says, "The other woman becomes the baby mother (Dlisted)"

It's about Gael Garcia Bernal and his BF, Dolores Fonzi. I find her wording odd - is it a clue?

Unless....could she be referring to the new rumors that John Edwards is the mother of Rielle Hunter's son?

Maybe it's just a coincidence.

Colts#1Filly said...

Ha! I meant FATHER. Hee!

Alyssa Milano? The Matriarch could be in relation to the Charmed series (always female witches, and I think they sometimes referred to a matriarch), and recently Lainey asked whether "Samantha Micelli had a job" in reference to pics of A.M. and now with the mixup on the Emmy carpet she also noted Milano should "shake up her career".
The guy, no idea. She always dated sports stars (starlets), no?

Don't sports family legends, but I agree with above, Kennedy does not conjure up images of fidelity. At all. Anywhere in their track record.

AJ reference, perhaps the tattoos? They both were child stars to some extent, she admits to collecting pets to compensate for not having kids, not sure.

Anonymous said...

that should say "don't KNOW sports family legends". ahem.

Anonymous said...

The Justine Bateman reference made me further suspect Daphne Zuniga, because I've always thought there is some resemblance.

But it could be a hint to Alyssa Milano as well, both playing teen daughters on 80s sitcoms.

Anonymous said...

Did Lainey give a clue to this one today?

In Smutty Tingles...

Anyone else see it?

Anonymous said...

Are you talking about the Angie - other one reference? I think it was just because Angelina is the real Angie, so Angie Hartman has to be "the other one".

I saw an IMAX Grand Canyon movie last night with RFK Jr. in it talking about water conservation. Every time he talked, all I think about was this riddle.

Here's what NYDN mentioned today about RFK considering a run for senate:

"Bobby did give serious thought to the Senate during a recent trip to Bhutan with wife Mary. When he returned, he consulted with his uncle, Sen. Ted Kennedy, his siblings, and with Caroline. But on Dec. 2, he announced in The New York Times that he’d decided that, if Gov. Paterson appointed him to the Senate, the campaign for reelection in 2010 would mean he’d rarely see his family.

Friends say there were other considerations. “Bobby knew the Republicans would bring up his heroin bust and who knows what else,” says one source. “He could handle it, but he didn’t want to subject his kids to it.”"

- hmmm, what else could be dug up? Daphne Zuniga affair maybe?

blurry vice said...

How about the Mary Kennedy suicide? I wonder if RFK Jr is still having an affair with Daphne Zuniga? I didn't realize that Mary hung herself in May. Now I keep seeing stories about her body being moved by Robert and her family not approving. Interesting. Daphne is still staying out of the spotlight and hasn't been working (that I know of).
