Lainey: 7/18/08

Commitment Crisis?

They were supposed to have kicked their bad habit together. A partnership in blow became a commitment effort to get clean. And for a while they were successful.


But he was the weaker one. And he’s been using again for a while.

The problem, one of many obviously, is that when he’s cranked, he’s also very aggressive. Some say he’s mixing his powder with some muscle juice and the coke/steroid combination brings out the roughneck which has presented many challenges for his publicist.

Fortunately his publicist is almost as clever as Jessica Biel's. Was able to turn spin a recent skirmish into an heroic rescue. The truth is, he was so jacked up on the good stuff he had to take it out on someone else’s head.

As for his wife...well she has a boyfriend. His name is Jesus. With her new devoutness has come an almost unbearable sanctimony, not to mention intolerance – for his lifestyle, for his binges – so much so that they are finding it increasingly difficult to be together, though like the Beckhams, they are a brand too.

One big happy family...fraud!

Comment below!!

* Update 7/29 - Lainey has eliminated: Gwen Stefani & Gavin Rossdale, Jennifer Lopez & Marc Anthony, Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith, Kevin Bacon & Kyra Sedgwick, Sean Penn & Robin Wright Penn, Katie & Peter, Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin, Johnny Depp & Vanessa Paradis, Tobey Maguire & Jen Mayer.

* Our top guess: Faith Hill & Tim McGraw *

First thought was J Brolin. He just got in a well-publiczied brawl a week ago...but he and D Lane are not a "brand" like the Beckhams. I'll have to check around on this one. anyone?

Tim McGraw & Faith Hill.

Tim McGraw did "rescue" a female fan at a concert in Auburn, WA on June 26.

Good call by house of brat.

YES just read the Tim McGraw guess on another site. Makes sense, they are a "brand" - what a shame. They seemed like normal people to me. pathetic.
this BI solved - boring. need more scandal!

Do Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have a drug using past?

sistah2 said...

acc to some posters, a rumor circulated that she used coke to lose weight after the kids birth. also, some snarky bloggers have remarked on his "coke bloat" in the past. so, if true, this could fit them. again, I wish its was not them. any other ideas?

Faith and Tim M fit. Or maybe Will and Jada?

What about Courtney and David Arquette?

What about John Travolta and Kelly Preston?

Kit said...

John Travolta & Kelly Preston, as well as Will Smith and Jada Pinkett are both too involved in Scientology right now to make it either of them I think.

Faith and Tim seem to fit, for now. but I'm also trying to see if this would be something that Lainey uncovered at any event she covered.

This is definitely the same couple Lainey referred to in her blind item "Truly Committed" over a year ago. Link here: http://www.laineygossip.com/Truly_Committed.aspx

I remember the general consensus then was that it was Faith and Tim (although shocking to believe, IMO).

I also thought it might be Josh Brolin and Dianne Lane but Sistah2 is right, they aren't really a brand.

Found another article touting Tim's "keeping the peace" spin: http://www.cmt.com/news/country-music/1590256/tim-mcgraw-says-he-was-just-keeping-the-peace.jhtml

I remember first reading about how he got into an altercation with a fan and ejected them but the latest articles definitely seem to be spinning it that he was a hero of some sort.

sistah2 said...

J travolta / W Smith have not had a recent altercation that I have heard of. That 's the best clue - I guess it has to be T McGraw.
Idiot.

blurry vice said...

Yep definitely them. That's a shame because they have kids.

Faith & Tim.
Lainey confirmed this today by saying that all Faith needs is "the Lord".

Anonymous said...

Check it out! Lainey just confirmed that this was Faith Hill!!!! "She has Jesus" etc.

Diana said...

Yup, saw that too!

yea I was just about to comment that Lainey pretty much confirmed faith and tim for this one today!

Faith Hill already has one divorce in her past, but she kept her First Husbands name. She was married to Daniel Hill for 7 years. She was engaged to Scott Hendricks when she met McGraw. She even had time for a roll in the hay with the Married with Children Alan Jackson. So I am sure she can weather this divorce. She is so rich, she surely wont have to do without, and will soon continue her pattern of getting another man QUICK.
