Grey Goose and beard

Yesterday, Ted discussed Austin Nichols and Sophia Bush -

Is Austin Lighting Sophia's Bush?

Even though we here at the A.T. may not understand the appeal of One Tree Hill, we found out that many of you are still eager to read about what this naughty cast is really up to when the cameras stop rolling.
Chad Michael Murray's unfortunate ex, Sophia Bush, showed up to the Sixth Annual Hollywood Style Awards last night with her other more-than-costar, Austin Nichols.
Uh, so is this now almost-official couple the hot new thing in Hollywood?
Hardly! The two are more on the Gyllenspoon track, if anything. I mean, should we get their new moniker ready? Bushnic?
Back to the do:
Sophia looked gorge in a sexy, black lace Max Azria dress and walked the carpet solo, dodging personal questions. However, once she got inside, she was quick to meet up with her "good friend" and costar Nichols, who just happened to be moonlighting as her date, we guess.
The two were not PDA-ish at all, but they were clearly there together. They chatted closely for a while before heading into the theater to watch the show, their goonish guard reps in tow everywhere they went, natch. Hands off the merchandise in every regard. Hello, isn't four a crowd?
Puppy-like Nichols followed Sophia around for most of the night, but when it was time to exit out the front, Sophia made a beeline for the door alone. A-L-O-N-E. Yeah, that makes a lotta sense: your first big outing as a brand-new couple, no coziness whatsoever, and separate exits. Sounds like a real burning love affair with those two already. They make Robsten look like friggin' Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart or somethin'.
Even though Bush referred to Nichols as her boyfriend to friends, Austin played coy when our own Party Girl asked him if they were dating.
"I'm not gonna say anything except that...I'm here to drink. We were talking before. We have a bunch of friends together—we work together," Austin said.
Looks like Nichols has taken a romance tip straight from BFF Jake Gyllenhaal's playbook: boring in public and saving the supposed spicy stuff for behind closed doors.
What, are you two studs too embarrassed to get frisky for all to see? Screw the proper Hollywood dating etiquette and do dumb, young-love stuff next time you're out with your significant other.
Sophia and Austin, we will be very disappointed if this coy stuff turns into coffee dates. Seriously, what's next, doubling up with Jake and Reese at Starbucks? Yeah, we're so sure that's about to happen.
(Big hints for Austin Nichols being Grey Goose.)

"Dear Ted:
After reading your article about Austin Nichols and Sophia Bush, I have to wonder what is up with those One Tree Hill ladies. Tell me, is Danneel Harris and Jensen Ackles' relationship comparable to Sophia and Austin's? And if so, would it be fair to say that Jared Padalecki is the Jake Gyllenhaal to Jensen's Austin?
—Curious

Dear Telenovela:
Whatever you're drinking, honey, I want some of that!"

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
I'm sure you won't stay single long (not that there is anything wrong with that if that's what you desire!). Please settle a bet. We've noticed that Austin Nichols has some stubble on his face. So tell us...would you say he has a "beard" or not?
—Karen

Dear Growing Pains:
Hard to say—I don't grow them."

The Spie said...

You really have to admire Curious/Telenovela. Going after four of Ted's most famous BV identities in one shot, and doing it in a creative way...Ted must have really strained at coming up with a comeback for that one. But the fact that he printed it is a big clue that Jared is Judas Jack-Off and Jensen is Dashed Dingle-Dream, in addition to the Toothy/Goose tip-offs.

blurry vice said...

Ha ha, a new reader of Ted's!

"Dear Ted:
You have a very clever, charming way about you. I'm new to your articles, so you may have addressed this: I read what you wrote other day about Austin Nichols and Sofia Bush. You made a lot of references to Jake Gyllenhaal throughout the article. Certain words and phrases made it seem like there is something going on between J.G and A.N. Have they ever been in a Blind Vice, possibly together?
—DDSunshine

Dear New and Virginal:
Whatever about my wording made you suspicious? Jake has not only been a B.V., he's a superstar, darling!"

pikespeak said...

I agree with you too, Spie.

It says SOOO much that he even printed that.

Some people don't see it, though.

sistah2 said...

who the hell is Jenson and Daneel? Are you kidding me?
anyway Ted's having soo much fun. Seems with his latest mailbag, he may have finally outed Toothy as Jake. So what happens now? Nothing.

The Spie said...

sistah: I need some clarification on your comment. I'm not sure if you're asking who Jensen Ackles and Danneel Harris are (as in you don't know who they are), or if you're asking, "Hey, who are these people?" (as in you're wondering about their importance). If it's the latter, oh, have I got a little world to introduce you to...

My friends and I stumbled upon a bar in the lower eastside 2 months ago that sorta stays open past 4 am. Anyhow, a few minutes after we arrived, Sophia and Austin rolled right in with 2 friends. We tried to take a pic but it would've been obvious since our table was right next to them. Anyhow, they are OBVIOUSLY A COUPLE BECAUSE they didnt seem to care that we were watching them make out for about 15 minuets straight. We got bored watching them and took off. They are really boring by the way. Haha.

sistah2 said...

spie, no offense but i dont know and dont care about Daneel/Janeel or whoever they are.
iheart, interesting story. I have always thought that Austin/Jake could just be bisexual and then who cares? I think one of them pissed Ted off so he's trying to embarrarass them.

blurry vice said...

sistah2 - Click on a label on the right of the page for "jensen ackles". He is one of the stars of "supernatural" which is a hit TV show. He and the his co-star on that show (jared padalecki) are rumored to be Dashed Dingle Dream and Judas Jack Off.

LOL said...

iheartstarlight,

your Austin and Sophia fiction sucks.

sistah2 said...

blurry, again no offense to whoever cares, but I guess i am too old to care to check labels for these people. I know Jared P. from gilmore girls which was a great show. How's he's known as Deaneel now, i dont know or care. again no offense.

The Spie said...

No, he's not Danneel. That's Jensen's beard, Danneel Harris. Just to get everyone straight:

Jake is Toothy Tile. His beard is Renee Witherspoon, aka Shafterella Shoshstein.

Austin is Grey Goose. His beard is Sophia Bush.

Jared Padalecki is Judas Jack-Off. He's had beards that have been drawing a great deal of anger from the J2 tinhat sector of Supernatural fans.

Jensen Ackles is Dashed Dingle-Dream. His beard is Austin's co-star Danneel Harris.

It's quite simple. Four closeted gay male actors, four actress beards.

The Spie said...

For some reason, I constantly mix up Renee Zellweger and Reese Witherspoon, and I have no idea why I do. Obviously, it's Reese I'm talking about in the previous post.

sistah2 said...

Poor Jared P. and Jensen. Little do they know, they really dont need to beard. They are sooo famous in their own minds. C list actors dont need beards, IMO. They must have high aspirations, tho, of becoming Alist. Good luck to them.

The Spie said...

sistah: Yeah, no doubt that Jared and Jensen are C-List. But, they star on a cult TV hit that a) is essentially keeping the CW afloat right now and b) has a fandom with a high proportion of young females, who might not take well to the news that their dreamboats are doing the nasty with each other (although given the heavy proportion of tinhats in this fandom, who are insisting that this is exactly what they're doing...). They're not necessarily bearding for the future, but they're definitely doing it for the present, whether under pressure from TPTB or not. They want to keep the Supernatural money train chugging along, and they're going to take the risk-averse path to do it.

sistah2 said...

point well taken

Anonymous said...

A while back (sorry, can't find it - it was a week or two ago) someone asked Ted in the BitchBack who was a great dad, and not a fake in Hollywood. He named Jake G. Is this not sort of pointing AWAY from JAke as Toothy?

sistah2 said...

Unless Ted is bringing back the legend of baby tile. He could be referring to Jake as toothy, if its true that Toothy has a kid (which I always thought was laughable)

Anonymous said...

true - but he also referred to reese's family, didn't even hint at baby tile. sorry, i can't find the reference - but it was a couple of weeks ago.

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
I know you're not a big One Tree Hill fan, but on this week's ep, Austin Nichols quoted the famous "I can't quit you!" line to another male character as a joke on a camping trip. I hope you find that as interesting as I do.
—MM

Dear Brokeback Nichols:
What's so interesting? I think I'm out on the joke."

Anonymous said...

gray goose and toothy tile.

sistah2 said...

Anon ~Jake is not a dad to Reese's kids, so I dont get it. ITs a stretch to connect that one. IMO

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
Any chance one of the actors or actresses on One Tree Hill (the show so bad it's good) has a B.V.? Or perhaps one of them is now dating a famous Blind Vicer—say, Grey Goose?
—Jede

Dear Too Obvious:
Duh. One Tree Hill'ers have been the subjects of B.V.s. They're regular heathens over there!"

blurry vice said...

Austin confirmed as a BV

"Dear Ted:
Is Whore-Hey Hoeman, Anderson Cooper? Are Judas Jack-Off and Dashed Dingle-Dream, Jake Gyllenhaal and Austin Nichols? Thanks, and I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving.
—DDSunshine

Dear Guessing Game:
Wrong guesses, babe! But all of them have obviously been Vicers, you've just got the wrong pairings. Happy T-Day to you, too!"

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
I thought One Tree Hill was just a handy closet for storing beards and boyfriends whilst not in use. Are you telling us the star of one of your Blind Vices also lurks there? If so, is it someone we thought was just a bit player, or did Chad Michael Murray manage to keep one of his exploits out of the tabloids?
—Curious Kate

Dear Nice Try:
Hmmm, I feel like if I answer this question, it'll be giving too much away."

Umm he did answer it.... in the question a couple of questions above it.

sistah2 said...

Anderson Cooper was a BV? Sisters - or anyone= help me here!

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
How do you think Austin Nichols feels about Reese and Jake's reported breakup? Longtime lover of the column.
—Jessica

Dear Three's a Crowd:
Maybe he's just happy to have his bike buddy back?"



sistah2 - don't you know Coop is Furrowed Frank? Check the list on the side. Where have you been? LOL

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
I think we all know how Grey Goose feels about Toothy Tile's choice of beard, but what does Toothy think of Grey's? Is it strictly business between the three of them or are they friends?
–BPD

Dear Out of the Loop:
If Grey has a serious beard, she's not doing a very good job."


(??? I thought it was Sophia Bush.)

I emailed Ted and asked him to clarify his response to that letter above, about Grey Goose's beard not doing a good job. Esp after today's post about Austin and Sophia Bush getting cuddly at a GG after party.

"Dear Ted:
What in the world is going on over at the CW? Four hookups: Two dating couples in Sophia Bush/Austin Nichols and Ed Westwick/Jessica Szohr and two engaged couples in Jensen Ackles/Danneel Harris and Jared Padalecki/Genevieve Cortese. Seems a little coincidental. Is it possible they're all for real?
—Mel

Dear Mini List:
And don't forget Blake Lively and Penn Bagdley. Plus, there have been a lot more behind-the-scenes hookups than you'd know. Chalk it up to the CW casting horny kids? As well as something a little less impetuous, more designing, to be sure."

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
Are you certain all of these male movie stars are secretly gay? Couldn't they just be bisexual in that they enjoy sexual romps with men (or women) on occasion, meaning they are just plain cheaters? What woman would engage in a fake romance, even to further her career?
—Moon

Dear Valid Point:
Yeah, sure you could label some of these closeted studs as bisexual, technically. But for a lot of them, it's a stop on the way to gaytown."

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
What in the heck is up with Sophia Bush and Austin Nichols? I used to think she had taste and a bit of class, but that short red dress she wore at Fashion Week left almost nothing to the imagination and looked like it belonged in the red light district. And what is up with Austin Nichols? He not only looked a bit of a mess (was he hitting the tequila early?), he looked more like one of the girls on the fashion sidelines than a boyfriend.
—Sydney

Dear Bush Basher:
Call off the sting operation—Sophia has hardly been looking like a hooker lately. While the dress may have been mega-mini, she's a classy gal and compensated by covering up on top (that's practically chaste by Hollywood standards). As for Austin, well, I'm sure he enjoyed looking at all the pretty dresses."

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
Hello from India! Absolutely love your column. Is Sophia Bush as sweet as she appears or is there a lot of high-school Brooke in her? Also what's with her dating only One Tree Hill men? Thanks.
—Tanya

Dear Shady Sophia:
The very sexy Sophia is a sweetheart, for sure, but she's as completely innocent as she appears to be—for example, her very questionable taste in men à la her newest relaysh with Austin Nichols. She'll learn soon enough."

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
Don't you think it's funny that longtime friends and One Tree Hill costars Austin Nichols and Sophia Bush are upping their showmance and staging photo ops with PDAs right as the show is in decline and at risk of being cancelled? I thought Austin would have learned from his good friend Jake Gyllenhaal that being part of a fauxmance doesn't exactly translate into career opportunities. They should focus on the quality of work and not being a joke in sugary photo ops. Are the CW and the producers of the show pushing them to do these tacky publicity tricks, or is it their own initiative for personal promo reasons?
—Natalie

Dear Too Sweet:
Whether Austin and Sophia's people urged them to up their exposure or not, the duo knows a little PDA can go a long way. Especially with the show on the chopping board; A.N. and S.B. need to stay in the limelight for post-Tree acting opportunities."

"Dear Ted:
The latest One Tree Hill plot regarding gay leading actors and the difficulties they face if exposed seems to be an interesting storyline given the sexcapades of the OTH cast. Would you say life is imitating art for one of the actors? Perhaps they had some influence on the writers?
—Chloe

Dear Art Meets Reality:
OTH has been on the air for so many years it's not surprising the writers would need to look at their cast—or other Hollywood stars—to get some material to write about! But did it actually work?"

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
Now that we all know that Austin Nichols has a Blind Vice (and you said it's very juicy), I was wondering if Sophia Bush knows anything about it? And if she doesn't know then I feel bad for her 'cause she needs a real man, the girl is beautiful.
—Mike

Dear in the Know:
Sophia is definitely aware of Austin's Vices. There's really no hiding this one—and she's cool with it too, which makes her perfect for him (at least for now)."

"Dear Ted:
Why did Sophia Bush say that she's been dating Austin Nichols for four years? She forgot that she had two long-term boyfriends during that time, actors Jon Foster and James Lafferty, and that this statement contradicts what she said about Austin in the past. Don't you think it's interesting that she created this particular dating timeline and that she strategically chose E! to talk about it?
—Reggie

Dear Coincidences:
Hey, you're sayin' it, not me! But yes, the timeline is more than fishy."

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
Sophia Bush did an interview with E! recently where she talked a little about her relationship with Austin Nichols. What several people are conveniently glossing over is that Sophia clearly mentioned that she and Austin have been "on and off" since she left her cheating ex-husband. There are fan pictures of Sophia and Austin from 2006, then 2008 when her relationship with Jon Foster ended and then the third time wasn't until Austin joined One Tree Hill. They started dating in 2009 after Sophia and James Lafferty broke up. I've always gotten the feeling that you're not a fan of Sophia and Austin's relationship, but you're the only one who can set things straight. Some people have completely misinterpreted what Sophia said and have put words in her mouth while jumping to false conclusions. Can you please set people straight?

Dear Twist My Mouth:
"Convenient" just like their relaysh, huh—no matter how long they've been supposedly dating?"

You recently stated that Toothy was still beardless, but what about Grey Goose? Is he currently making the rounds with a beard?

Dear Crafty Query:
Yes."

"Dear Ted:
Is Grey Goose's beard a new lady in his life, or are they more on-again, off-again?

Dear Beauty and the Beard:
They're pals, which is the best kind of beard. So nice of her to help her gay BFF, don't you think?"

"Dear Ted:
I think it's great that Sophia Bush and Austin Nichols are trying to help out with the oil spill, but I feel like most of their motivation for wanting to help is just to get publicity for themselves. I guess it doesn't matter what their motivation is as long as they're helping, but they should take a lesson from Ian Somerhalder, who you can tell just wants to help and doesn't care about getting attention for it.
—J

Dear Bushwhacked:
What's to distinguish Somerhalder as genuine and Sophia and Austin as publicity-craving? Why can't both be both?"

I absolutely love you for taking the time to write an article about what Sophia Bush and Austin Nichols have been doing regarding the Gulf Coast disaster. They've helped bring a lot of attention to the huge mess down there. I have family who live in New Orleans and there is a lot of devastation down there. Every time some sort of a disaster happens, people all over the Internet are always whining and complaining about how Hollywood should be helping and doing something instead of driving around in expensive cars and living in their big houses. Yet the second an actor or actress steps up to help, you have these same people complaining about how they're doing it solely for the wrong reason, which isn't always the case.
—Veracity

Dear Oozin' Compliments:
Thanks, V! Soph and Austin are doing great work, and it pains me to see folks thinking that they're doing it only for the publicity. Everything a celeb does is public, but that doesn't mean that that's all it was meant to be."

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
How's a girl supposed to know who is bi, gay or otherwise when it seems like even the ones long suspected of same-sex shenanigans are shacking up and having babies? One of your old timer Blind Vices just announced a baby on the way and I was sure he was gay and used to be with a famous beard. I mean at this point I wouldn't be surprised if Grey Goose and his beard announced a marriage and a kid on the way, and now you're saying the oh-so-gay Parrish Maguire (nice name by the way) is doubting his gayness! Please! Seriously!
—Marissa

Dear Miss Mariss:
That's the problem with assumptions about my Vices—you never quite really know who they are, do ya? And unless they out themselves, that Hollywood-encompassing Venn diagram of gay and nay isn't gonna happen. To quote the greatest pop star of our time (Adam Lambert), Whaddya want from me!?"

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
How often on-the-set affairs happen? I am not just talking about movie sets, but on TV network sets. Those stars have to get pretty close on those long hours, and if the show is long-running, they can be bonded together ("in secret") for years. Are they as crazy and scandalous as they seem, or are sets just as normal and boring (not to mention disappointing) as people say? If they do happen, how are they not more out in the open?
—Leila

Dear Set Snoop:
Define affair. Sure, costars canoodle (and more) between takes—sometimes the muy caliente chemistry just carries over. But what's far more interesting are the costars who want you to think they're getting it on when the director yells "cut!" But don't be fooled, they so aren't."

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
Are all the male actors who beard self-centered, moneygrubbing, greedy fame whores, or are there some who beard who sincerely believe they are doing it for the "greater good"? For instance, to protect a relationship or something they stand for that would be totally eclipsed by "scandal" if they were to come out? Not that they're right, but they sincerely believe that to be true.
—Bunny

Dear Funny Bunny:
Suppose the latter can be true, but it isn't usually; greedy fame whores might be a bit harsh. Think scared actors who care more about their career than furthering the greater good. Sometimes a person wants both their career and their love life to thrive, and in order to do that, they think they have to beard. Just ask Grey Goose."

"Dear Ted:
After all the recent love/hate back and forth concerning Ed Westwick and Jessica Szohr, it seems obvious that their relationship is now all about publicity. But was it always like this? Do you think they really hate each other and only pretend for the press? Or are they still together and secretly giggling about all the breakup and fight rumors? Frankly, it is getting quite annoying and is not making me want to read about either of them any more.
—Sam

Dear All Gossiped Out:
Wait, you're implying that CW stars fake relationships for the media attention when they create drama, drama, drama? No! But to be serious, sure there was a spark at one point."

Dear Trouble in CW:
The two definitely make a hot pairing, but the miles could be an issue—distance doesn't always make the heart grow founder. But then again, Sophia Bush and Chad Michael Murray got hot and heavy on and off the same set, and still called it quits. Let's just hope the Ackles-Harris marriage doesn't experience the CW love curse. Soph still hasn't been informed about the CW love bug, hate to break it!"

—Gabby wants to know

Dear Hottie Alert:
My, what devious taste you have. Austin is a total doll, and he isn't bad to look at, either—as you obviously noticed. Considering Austin's besties with Jake Gyllenhaal, clearly he's got a little sneak to him. Then again, those two haven't been Laker buddies or biking pals in a while. Maybe they've both more been concentrating on what it takes to be a real-deal moneyed superstar? Jake's generous with his tips, after all."
