Lainey: 9/4/08 - Anger Management

Anger Management

It's not just Russell Crowe who has anger issues...only he was stupid enough to beat down a dude who didn't have to survive in the business.

This ferocious lady who in these circles has always been known to be a difficult bitch keeps her attacks, with a few exceptions (like if you make the mistake of not getting out of her way quickly enough at the airport), restricted to those who have to work around her. Like PAs and caterers, makeup artists. Whichever minion catches her in a bad mood and depending on the crime, it could result in an open hand slap to the face, throwing coffee all over someone's pants, and most recently, when craft services wasn't up to her exacting standards, stalking up to an unsuspecting staffer, ripping the phone out of his ear, and screeching to the person on the other line: "you've been talking to a retard who can't do his job."

Apparently her episodes have been getting more and more violent, so much so that the director and producer on her current project have had to call in reinforcements: her husband is now travelling with her to calm her now legendary temper but also to look after the little one, who has been exposed on more than a few occasions to her viotriolic outbursts. So far...it's working. Everyone is relieved but also extra, extra cautious. Calm before the storm.

Not Madonna. She's on tour not on set around producers and directors. Maybe one of the desperate housewives?

I like the Courtney Cox guess. I know there was a Lainey BI about her a while back about her b*thcing to her limo driver toi shut up or something.

Lainey just said this is not about Courtney Cox...

sistah2 said...

"director and producer on her current project...." this could definitely still be Madonna. On tour, she has a director and a producer - her manager plays this role, among others. I just read her bro's book and he details this. Her tour is such a big production, she def. has staff, catering svc, etc. etc. and - biggest clue is "her husband is now travelling with her...." that is a huge clue that the group is traveling together, and the way Ted spelled "traveling" is the brit way ( two l's). The little one is David. I say its Madonna, hands down.

Ok, I just guessed Jessica Alba on the Banning Bottles blind but she kinda fits this one too...

Also, didn't she play a character names Storm in Fantastic Four (ie. "calm before the storm")?

Bjork? Remember she went ape sh*t on that one photog a few years ago

sistah2 said...

sorry this was Lainey not Ted. also, she tends to spell british anyway, so that clue can be dropped - also Guy was with her until 2 days ago - he just got to Toronto, she is still touring Europe. So he WAS with her, then Lainey ref. to the calm before the storm - ref to him leaving 2 days ago?

Debra Messing? Lainey made a comment that she was "over" her in a post.....

Boss Bunny said...

I was sure it was Debra Messing until I read "traveling with her," which sounded more like Madonna. Unless Debra travels for "The Starter Wife."

sistah2 said...

also, its well known that Madonna's kids are with her on the tour most of the time.

Its Kim Basinger!! Lainey revealed it today "PPS. Kim Basinger’s anger is not being managed, clearly."

Anonymous said...

Poor Ireland. Dumb name plus 2 parents with anger management problems.

DLL

Boss Bunny said...

Are you sure? Kim Basinger isn't marries, and Lainey mentions "husband."

Colts#1Filly said...

I think she is eliminating Kim as the person in this BI. Since the heading of this BI is Anger Management - she is saying that Kim is NOT managing her anger. At least that's how I read it.

Lainey just eliminated Debra Messing in today's post. I thought she was good for it, I guess Madonna has been the only logical choice so far that hasn't been eliminated.

Kim Basinger was eliminated yesterday.

Anonymous said...

Didn't the post say "Kim Basinger's anger is not being managed, clearly..." meaning this IS about her?

Colts#1Filly said...

It did say that but this BI is about someone who IS managing their anger. So, not Kim B.

Could it be Celine Dion?

Mico said...

Sarah Jessica Parker

Husband. 1 child. Screeches.

Anonymous said...

Started it thinking, Naomi Campbell right... the airport, storm modelling agency etc but she is not yet with child so i have no idea.

Any publicised airport incidents on these others?

Anonymous said...

i think it's sarah jessica parker as well. "little one" implies one child to me.

sistah2 said...

guys I am sooo convinced its Madonna

Colts#1Filly said...

I agree. I just don't ever remember hearing SJP referred to as "ferocious" or considered "a difficult bitch"....while Madonna certainly has! Altho I think the Celine Dion guess is an interesting one...esp considering she's Canadian as is Lainey.

Could this be Nicole Kidman?

How about Kelly Rutherford from Gossip Girl? In her divorce papers her husband says that she is voilent and implies that he spends most of the time looking after the child...

Well, Lainey has more or less revealed this to be Jessica Alba, The Bitch as she like to call her. This is what she had to say about her on Jan 6th:
"Didn’t take long.

Here’s the new Taupe grocery shopping with mom … in the organic food section. Of course photographers were invited to tag along. Because Jessica Alba is tight with her family and is now totally domesticated. She’s a young yummy mummy …so please go see her movies, please, please, please?

This way she’ll be able to continue abusing people on the set, honouring them with the gift of taking off her boots, yelling at assistants for their incompetence when a fan approaches for an autograph, letting her dog sh-t all over and making those who earn minimum wage clean up the mess…

Motherhood is wonderful. I believe it. But motherhood doesn’t cure a bitch. Not the Alba one."
