Blind Vice: Bernie Screws Only Herself in the End!

New from Ted today -

TransformersBlind Vice: Bernie Screws Only Herself in the End!


It's the oldest story in Hollywood: sex for hire. But unlike some other Blind Vice candidates we've covered over the sleazy years, Bernadine Couch-Butt's Tinseltown rise didn't involve any sex that was contractually required. Bernie snagged her big, successful horny director man the old-fashioned way: wearing a nightie. Yep, a see-through job just happened to be what Bernadine was wearing when they first met, lucky for Bernie.
Because she's now well on her way to donning equally lusty outfits in...
A meaty role in Attack of the Mopey Mothballs, her lover's latest über-gizmoed-out mega hit!
Funny, though, nobody'll ever really remember Bernie, once Mothballs V, VI and VII come out, a fact Bernadine's blithely dismissing from her pretty little head. But Bernie and big director man are still going at it—on the set, on call, on the funny stuff, whenever and wherever! Who needs to think about things like a future when you're getting laid and you're famous all at the same time, right?
Well, Bernie sure should.
Nobody's getting hurt in this adults-only game; neither lover has a steady partner. But what's totally rich in this typical Hollywood story is how totally fried Bernie's going to get once she's tossed aside, as she will be.
We're only going by experience here when we say this. You see, every one of Bernie's legions of predecessors have not only been ruthlessly discarded by their horny hiring dude, but they've been tarnished and black-listed, as a result.
Only one of these women has survived the taint and gone on to make a name for herself.
Not great odds for our poor, gorgeous Ms. Couch-Butt.

And It Ain't: Ashley Greene, Blake Lively, Vanessa Hudgens

Update 8/16 - Ted says "No B.V. for the babe who survived this sleezy scheme".

* Top suspects: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (featuring Michael Bay and ?)

Hey everyone,
First, a non-bv comment, ROBERT PATTINSON is in Montreal, near by, swoon.
Now to serious stuff, when reading the bv, I thought of Rose McGowan, with that Rodriguez guy. Might be off. Submitted to Ted, will see if he answers back.

talia said...

the new transformers-babe and michael bay?

Rita, Montreal said...

To Talia: Michael Bay is reputed to be quite the cad with the ladies. But who would be the only one who had survived and thrived. Not Fox, she hasn't done anything of worthy since she got replaced.

roseyf said...

Yep, I think it's Rosie Huntington-Whiteley who replaced Megan Fox in Transformers 3. She was a Victoria's Secret model, and Michael Bay directed one of the VS commercials she was in, so that explains the nightie. And MB is known for sleeping through the women in his projects.

Megan's made a decent name for herself especially in male magazines, so she might be the "survivor". The only other notable females from his major movies are Kate Beckinsale from Pearl Harbor, Liv Tyler from Armageddon, and ScarJo from The Island. But those three were arguably big before those movies, so I'm stuck with Megan as the survivor.

Liz said...

Micheal Bay and the VS Model. His survivor is Anglina Jolie!!! He gave her her start in the business...shot a commerical if im not mistaken. She has definately made a BIG name for herself.

mike said...

rose mcgowan totally first came to mind here too.

wasn't she supposed to be doing the Barbarella remake with robert rodriguez?

Jacq said...

Hi, first time posting. It wouldn't be Rose McGowan. This blind references a recent hook up. Rose McGowan and Robert Rodriquez have been together since they made "Planet Terror" which was 3 or more years ago and they are considered a couple, so the comment "neither has a steady partner" wouldn't make sense since they are steady partners. Also, Robert's movies wound not be described as really "uber-gizmoed-out mega hits".

I agree that it sounds like Michael Bay and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Caz1310 said...

You guys are good - I wouldn't have thought of Rosie & Bay at all.. thinking about it though, she was crtainly an odd choice to replace MF. Good pick up on the nightie & Victorias Secret link LOL.

mike said...

girl you are so right.
the clues all seem to be fitting for MB and RHW.

"wearing a nightie. Yep, a see-through job just happened to be what Bernadine was wearing when they first met, lucky for Bernie."

thaaat victoria's secret commerical:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmNEG8IFd_Y


didnt really think meg fox got blacklisted though really.
think she picked the best out of her options, considering her trickery of talent.
jonah hex was a bomb, obvi.
her next film w mickey rourke sounds interesting enough though.

so who has been one of the MB taint surviors then?
i've been looking through his filmography and trying to figure that one out


and on a random note; can we talk about this?
clearly a MB taint lover.

ugh gross

mike said...

http://www.yesbutnobutyes.com/archives/2009/06/the_women_of_mi.html

any guesses?

Tara said...

I agree with Michael Bay and RHW, though sorry, I don't think she is worthy of her own BV. Good work, peeps. I have to say, Rita, I first thought of Robert Rodriguez as well.

Jacq said...

K

Jacq said...

Oops, sorry problems signing in. Still new.
Don't forget Megan Fox filmed those movies before her exit from Transformers 3. And when she left the movie her professional reputation took a beating.

Also, the blind doesn't reference that it was his leading ladies. It could be extra/bit parts or just wannabes that tried to jump start a career off a relationship with him but he killed their careers before anything happened for them. Sadly, this an all too common scenario in Hollywood.

Rita, Montreal said...

It seems to me that a while back, there was a bind from Lainey Gossip, about Michael Bay: How he used this actress, than after abusing her (with her consent) with another man, so she could just have a look at a script, he dumped her because he wants none other than Blake Lively.

Everyone thought that the dumped desperate actress was J.Alba... Has Alba done anything with MB? That TV show maybe, Dark Angel or something?

House of Brat said...

ScarJo would probably be the one that survived. Wasn't The Island a Michael Bay film?

Rita, Montreal said...

To Mike: your link means that ScarJo is indeed the ultimate survior, all of the other women are still fighting very hard to stay relevant in the business. Nice find!

Tara said...

Megan Fox, despite her tarnished rep, is probably the one who has made a name for herself--good or bad. She is surely the one who survived. She did the 2 Transformers movies and is, despite the sitch with Bay, still desirable.

Jacq said...

I still think we're misinterpreting the part of blind about the legion of women and only one survived to make a name. It doesn't say that the women he slept with were necessarily the leads in his film, it just implies the current one is. And it never says that the actresses are A-list. To me this blind reads that he slept with wannabes that he cast in small and maybe big roles and then when he was done blacklisted them. The blind references legions of women.

MB hasn't done enough movies for his female leads to be considered "legions" and that's assuming he slept with all his leading women, which I doubt he did.

Also Scarjo had a name before making The Island. Kate beckinsdale is a known name and had success afterwards, click, van helsing, underworld series. Liv Tyler is a recognizable name and she's been apart of some big movies, LOTR, hulk, the strangers.

steph148 said...

Rita, Lainey's "casting couch" blind was about a married movie executive (widely believed to be Harvey Weinstein). Michael Bay isn't married, so that blind couldn't have been about him.

Tara said...

Jacq, Ted is so ambiguous sometimes, much of his BVs can be taken many ways, so depending on personal opinion or pov, anyone could read into or overanalyze anything. It may not say whether the girls were leads or extras in his film, but I was merely saying the most likely one to go on and make a name for herself in a film he directed (ie get popular/blow up fame wise) would probably be Fox. She had nothing notable on her resume prior to Transformers, other than a supporting role in a Lindsay Lohan movie. She and Bay had a seriously tumultuous falling out and the dirty laundry was publicly aired. In addition, it was rumored he was trying to blacklist her and make her undesirable to employ. It is known he tarnished her image and made her look stupid (though she does that on her own sometimes as well). No one really gives a hoot who Michael Bay has schtupped, it is the list of chicks he hit and quit that most would be interested in hearing about. Not that this part of the blind matters, anyway. Ted may be also hinting that MB is just an arse and there was much more to the MB/MF blowout than we all heard, but if MF has a BV of her own, he can't link it w/her BV name because it would make this one and MF's too obvs.

Jacq said...

Tara - you seem to think my last comment was directed towards you. It wasn't. It was a comment directed to everyone who has been speculating on who the one was that made a name for herself.

Yes, I know ted's (and most blinds for that matter) are ambigous. The point of my last comment was to remind everyone (myself included, hence the "we are") not to fall into the trap of assuming that his past encounters and the one who made a name for herself were necessairily his leading ladies.

However, no I don't think the one who went on to make a name for herself was Megan Fox. Ted says this guy's MO
is to as you put it "hit it and quit it" then blacklist. If that was the case then he would have dumped MF after the first movie and especially, after the second one when she pubically bad mouthed the movie and MB. And he certainly wouldn't have had her in the third one. I also think it is too early to tell where MF's career is going. She was only just
dumped/left T3 about 2 months ago. Her 2 non transformer movies were massive flops, her professional reputation is questionable and she isn't attached to
anything big. She's still riding off her transformer success.

Rita, Montreal said...

To Jacq - I quite agree that the survivor would not be MFox, I would rather think it's ScarJo. However, it would definitely explain why MFox would say such stupid things about a movie she is co-headlining, and a powerful director with quite the rep in Hollywood. Somehow, I don't think MFox is the kind of girl you dump, dump on, and get away with it.

However, MBay seems to be quite the ass on his own. Everyone who had worked with him agrees that he is cool yet demanding with the guys, but treats his leading ladies quite despicably.

The Spie said...

Jacq: Let me assure you, Tara wasn't taking what you said personally. We do tend to dissect guesses here more deeply than at other gossip sites. Personally, I think you're fitting in quite well here, and Tara is defending her guess in the standard manner here.

Finding out who the survivor is is the critical piece of information we have in cementing the identity of this blind. You're playing Tara's Devil's Advocate on Fox, and right now, I think you have the stronger case. It sounds like Ted is stating that the survivor has professional accomplishments that extend past her tenure with Bay. Fox is more known for her relationship with BAG than her work outside of Transformers.

That said, the obvious survivor is Kate Beckinsale. Look at her iMDB: before Pearl Harbor, she's doing mostly TV work and some very low-profile films. Afterward, she's movies-only, and some high-profile ones at that. She may not have cashed in as much as she could have after Underworld, but she's got nothing really shameful on her CV. She's definitely still B-List and relevant. Without Beckinsale, the case for this being RHW and MB weakens considerably.

childeroland said...

I would argue that Fox could be the survivor, given that she is still a name (for now) after having worked with Bay and can turn her fading career around with one hit film. ScarJo could also be the survivor but I think she had a fairly big name before The Island (she'd already done Lost in Translation) so I'm not sure how it'd be a surprise if Bay couldn't get her blacklisted.

Ananda said...

I think it may be Michael Bay and Katie Cassidy. They did "A Nightmare on Elm Street" together which also starred Kellan Lutz, who worked with Ashley Green on Twilight films. The film brought in $110 Million so it would be considered a blockbuster. If you go to thesaurus.com and look up each of the words in the fake movie "Attack of the Mopey Mothballs", you find similarities to "A Nightmare on Elm Street". That one is a stretch, I know.

Katie is currently working with Selena Gomez (Disney darling like AIA Vanessa Hudgens) and Leighton Meester (on Gossip Girl with Blake Lively) and she is also starring on Gossip Girl in Season 4 (another Blake Lively connection). And Michael Bay publicly dated Pamela Anderson, who would be a good candidate for someone who made a name for herself. Thoughts?

thomasonclan said...

Just an observation...Jennifer Garner was in Pearl Harbor w/ Michael Bay directing before she was anyone...she could be the survivor.

Tara said...

Jacq, Spie said it better than I could have for sure. I take none of that personally and I was merely stating my argument for MF. I completely agree that you are contributing worthy info to the boards, and do not take offense to an opposing stance;)

I have to say, just because Megan has not won awards or been in anything remotely critically acclaimed after Transformers, it does not mean she has not made a name for herself. After Transformers was when she hit the top spot on Maxim's Hot 100, and has since been in the top 5 the following 2 years. Her love life is constantly tracked and reported on and she is a paparazzi magnet. Is this a laughable way to make oneself a household name? Perhaps. But she follows too many predecessors who have done exactly the same to keep their name in the tabloids when they begin to disappear. Britney, Lindsay, the Kardashians, Paris Hilton--all have sought alternative ways to keep people talking and keep themselves relevant when they were starting to lose (or never had) their sparkle. I'm not saying she is worthy of the attention and fame, I am just saying people talk about and people are interested in her, and part of that is due to her role in Transformers and her Maxim/sexpot/next Angelina notoriety.

IMO, ScarJo is a no-go. She, like childeroland said, had already done Lost in Translation 3 years prior to the Island and also the Girl With the Pearl Earring, both Oscar nominated and critically acclaimed films. People were already talking about her and she was on her way up. She didn't need to do the deed with Bay, she was already Woody Allen's muse by the time she worked with Bay.

I would, however, like to explore the idea of Kate Beckinsale. I like Jennifer Garner as well, she started Alias right after/around the same time as Pearl Harbor. Those would be two more A/B list names, though Beckinsale is not on the same level as Garner in my opinion. I also will not accept that because she was married at the time, she would not do such a thing. Let's not forget she started up with Michael Vartan on Alias before she and her husband Scott Foley were officially separated. I feel like a celeb nerd for remembering that right now.

J said...

Ben Affleck and Blake Lively

Caz1310 said...

Golly I never though of Beckinsale until reading these posts. Her career has certainly gone downhill of late and she seems to have a lot going on (eating disorder). Megan Fox is finished as an actress - her last two movies have well and truly tanked and there's a lot of negative press out there. I'm still leaning towards Scarlett as the survivor.

Nas said...

James Cameron for sure, and the survivor is Kathryn Bigelow...

talia said...

there's only one action-franchise right now that's bv-worthy, with the third part in the making and the possibility of a number V,VI and VII coming... so it's got to be about michael bay. (no cameron or affleck...)
the legions of predecessors don't have to be the famous ones (garner, johansson,...). if you have a look at imdb and the films where he was "only" producing you find many women which you only can see on tv (guest starring)eg nightmare, friday, chainsaw... lots of meat to choose from...
so to find the survivor we need more clues or someone has to find old gossip concerning bay and those "famous" leading ladies while shooting the movies (beckingsale, johansson, garner or even jolie).

Rita, Montreal said...

Well, I'm in the Bitch Backs twice today, once under Rita (for Dina Lohan) and the second under Montreal, they have deleted my name and kept the city! I guess we have a definitive answer on it not being Rose McGowan. But Ted says that the survivor is NOT a BV: isn't Megan Fox one? Must be then ScarJo...
Here is the link: http://ca.eonline.com/uberblog/the_awful_truth/b195298_bitch-back_julia_roberts_eat_pray_over.html
I hope am not stepping on anyone`s toes when putting the link! Please remember, I am new to this blog.

The Spie said...

Rita: Personally, I think getting into Bitch-Back twice in one blolumn excuses a little horn-tooting. The Sisters will do the official response post.

The last time that Ted said that Fox wasn't a BV was December 18th of last year. I think that may have continued given his response to D in Bitch-Back today. I think I might do a full analysis of BVs from December 18th in here to see if any fit Fox. Off the top of my head, I'd say the answer is no. That means she's still in play as Survivor.

The last time Ted said that ScarJo wasn't a BV was August 20th of last year. That would require a formal analysis, but I don't think she's been a good candidate for anything since then.

He's never said anything either way about my candidate for Survivor, Beckinsale, or Garner. So all of our main candidates for Survivor are alive and well at this point.

Rita, Montreal said...

Spie - I am tooting my own horn! Am a fan of Ted's, so obviously is this site or they wouldn't concentrate on his BVs so much.
You know, I am with Jacq on this one, you have a lot of time to type long answers, but so few words in your introductory answers seem, personnally, harsh to new comers on this site. Have decided to be a part of this for the fun of sharing my guesses with others, other sites are less controled, and people go off on nothing and be rude. Personnally, you are getting there, if I am mistaken, sorry then, obviously, your straight to the point words are misleading.

Jacq said...

Hmmm, I thought I made a post but now I don't see it. If this posts twice, apologies.

I'm with Thomasonclan, I was wondering about Jennifer Garner too. However, with Rita's question today to Ted we discovered that the "survivor" is not a BV (at least yet). Is Jennifer Garner a BV or is she just associated through Ben Affleck, but no name herself?

Rita, Montreal said...

Jacq, I think Jen is an oldie but a goodie. Maybe some of the "oldies" from this site could confirm. JenGarner is a good guess though, but would you call her career a success compared to ScarJo, who as far as we know, is still not a BV. sorry to come back to her, but she has Tony, oscar nom (I think Girl w/Pearl earing)and others that I don't remember, compared to JenGarner's prize nodds. Would prefer her to Beckinsale, who from my point of view, got most of her career because of her husband. Thoughts?

Jacq said...

Hi Rita, the question isn't who's a bigger star/name (which I agree with you and think Scarjo is) but who slept with MB to get a movie role to further their career and then survived the "taint" of it. And I just don' see Scarjo sleeping with MB to get The Island. She had enough star power at that point to be cast on her credits.

I do think that Kate Beckinsdale and Jen Garner didn't have strong careers before Pearl Harbour and I could see either of them sleeping with MB for a role.

Kate has a thing for sleeping with her directors and I do remember that after Pearl Harbour there was some talk about how Kate had some issues in Hollywood and that's what prompted her to get the plastic surgery.

As for Jen Garner I could see her hooking up with MB. And the fact that she went to tv which would be outside of MB's sphere of influence would explain how she was able to move past the "taint". As she became a big enough tv star, she was able to get movie roles. But if she does have a BV moniker, I guess that would eliminate her.

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
When I read your Bernadine Couch-Butt's Vice, I immediately thought of Rose McGowan with her Robert Rodriguez dude. But he is a director, not a producer, or is he both? Anyway, could you tell me if I am close? Or maybe tell us if the only woman who succeeded in the business after being dumped by big-shot producer has a B.V. of her own?
—Montreal

Dear King of the Couch:
No B.V. for the babe who survived this sleezy scheme. Kind of surprising, no?"

Rita, Montreal said...

Quite right about Jen. For ScarJo, did you know that she had slept with Benicio Del Toro the night he had won an award for his supporting role for Traffic? That being said, she did know though how to keep her wild side quite. And her mother always managed her career closely, and kept an eye on her... oh là, Jen Garner would make much more sense than Magan Fox... I still can`t imagine Magan as the one who made it despite MB's attitude. She hasn`t done anything meaningful yet...
So is it Kate then? But if she hadn't married her Director, she wouldn't have gotten any of the other parts... What do u think?

Jacq said...

I think Scarjo knows how to keep her private life private. As for Kate, maybe that's how she got past the blackballing???

Rita, Montreal said...

To the Sisters,
I don't know if this is the space, but in the same Bitch Backs (Aug. 16th), Ted spoke about Terry Tush-Trade. The funny think? He sort of outed Kellan Lutz as bi-sexual! Check his answer.

Dear Ted:
Recently someone asked if you would ever "not" someone for a B.V. when they were, in fact, the answer to the B.V. You replied, "I would never". As a loyal A.T. reader, I believe you. But there are some doubters out there. Can you do me a solid and reiterate what you've already said...that Nikki Reed and Kellan Lutz are not Terry Tush-Trade?
—Sally

Dear Repeat Offender:
Why can't anyone seem to keep track of who's not a Vice these days? Too busy obsessing about Robsten I guess, huh? Here's a little bisexual cherry with yummy whipped cream on top: It ain't Nikki.

I still believe though that Terry is KSTEW.

Tara said...

Rita, if you are adressing me by saying I am rude (you didn't give a name), I think you are misinterpreting my posts. Jacq apologized in case I took offense to her saying we are all misunderstanding Ted's words, said it seemed I was offended by her post, I responded by letting her know I was not offended by what she said. If some of us have a person in mind for a BV, we will stick with that fave and give a good argument until we are proven wrong by Ted or someone gives a better argument or backing proof for another candidate. This really is all in fun, and if you take any of my opposing opinions personally, it is not meant that way. If someone is being rude on here, I am usually the one to speak up--and not in a mean way, just so we keep it fun and focused on what is important. I apologize if some of my banter does not translate well for you. As far as my sometimes wordy posts go, my chattiness translates on paper--what can I say?

PS the sisters may remove your last post here, they will say it is in the wrong thread (TTT is where you will see this) and probably tell you to leave the BB posting to them. You do get leniency as a newcomer. And welcome, enchante.

Rita, Montreal said...

To Tara - thank you and sorry too.
Staying with the spirit of defending tooth-and-nail my bv guesses:

I think all agree that the ass is Michael Bay, and after everyone's thoughts on MB, I really don't see who else could it be!

For the Survivor though, I am sticking with ScarJo. Unless MFox has NEVER been a BV, Ted's words indicate not necessarily acting success, but more of making 'a Name for herself'. Reviewing his last sentence, made me re-think MFox, 'cause boy, did she make a name for herself!

Tara said...

Ok, I get it, Fox is not a popular theory. Not 100% giving up on the idea. But--if I were to have a runner up, it would be Jen Garner right now. Here is a fun fact: Michael Bay and JJ Abrams (creator of Alias) worked together on Armageddon, as director and screenplay writer, respectively. What if Bay called in a favor to Abrams when he heard about upcoming Alias...around the same time Bay & Garner were shooting Pearl Harbor? The timeline matches up beautifully.

You know Ted can't stand JG, so if she does have a BV, he will not be coy about it for sure.

Tara said...

Rita, I appreciate your reply, and respect someone who sticks to their guns. I can't get behind ScarJo though:( My issue with it is simply that she had rising fame and notoriety before The Island. Girl w/Pearl Earring and Lost In Translation were 2-3 yrs prior, and are to date some of her best and most recognized work, and what shot her to fame. On the other hand, I had to look it up to remember what The Island was. She did have success with Woody Allen as his muse after The Island, however, though I have a hard time believing Woody is friendly with Michael Bay.

One thing we can all agree on, Michael Bay is a scummy manwhore who makes arguably terrible films. Action, check! Gadgets, check! Substance, not so much.

Rita, Montreal said...

Yep. Jen Garner, selon Ted, is a mastermind manipulator... Quite oddly, the female version of Michael Bay: dumped husband #1 to date sexy co-star Michael Vartan when he was on his way up. Dumped Vartan and tried to get him off Alias, and was very cruel to him, when she started fooling around with Ben Affleck for that movie they did together... What is the name, she was Electra, he was a blind superhero...
Anyways, she had a rep, way before Reese Witherspoon, of absolutely destroying her lovers' carriers after she is done with them. Hmm... Am rethinking the whole survivor blind.
But you are right: if it were Jen, Ted would've too happy to point us in the right direction.

Rita, Montreal said...

Has anyone wondered though what is the relation or link between Ms.Couch-butt and the AIAs listed? How random... unless he had made movies with all of them...

Caz1310 said...

What a good debate this is turning into. LOL I had forgotten Jen Garner's Alias past - yes she did do all of that Rita. Nice linkage between Bay & Abrams for the Alias link...being a fan of the show I loved Vartan (and he seemed really nice too). Does anyone recall why Ted hates her so much? The venom he has for her is almost as big as Lainey for Katherine Heigl!Watching this blog with interest..

Rita, Montreal said...

Hello Caz, Ted sometimes defends his blinds, like, hmmm, Toothy (trying to shut Reese's people up for example, b/c they have been trying to out Toothy, and spread vicious rumors about drug abuse, around her children nonetheless, etc.)

For our dear Jen Garner, at the hight of her popularity, she was becoming quite the manipulative bitch, being absolutely heinous to Ted's people and other media, then turning into freaking Snow White when cameras roll. Like Heigl, after a while, there is a cumulative effect. You are nasty to sooo many people, maids, chauffeurs, bloggers, paparazzi, that finally, nobody wants anything to do with you, and most of all, bloggers, journalists and paparazzi don't want to play your game anymore for pictures, and start getting their experience with you "out there".

This is the sad case of Jen Garner, Reese Witherspoon is very much on her way there (that is how all of sudden, an actor who seem very sweet during interviews, start getting a bad rep, not from one, but from many outlets).

Boy that was long. You can go to E! and search Jen G on Awful Truth, and of course, you will be able to connect the dots on this site with BVs revealed for both ladies (sarcastic). Tourlou.

Rita, Montreal said...

Caz - forgot to explain that Ted hates Jen, not only b/c of her vicious attitude, but also, because her felt very bad towards husband #1, and Michael Vartan, and knowing what goes on behind the scenes (i.e. his how he gets his BVs) he felt the need to defend, or go on the offense, as per last defense of Jake Gyllenhalllll (wow, lost control of that one, don't remember the spelling) so Toothy.

Tara said...

Pretty sure I remember, around the start of Alias/time of her divorce from Scott, that there was a big ol' blind (pretty sure it was Ted's too!) about two costars (at least one married) getting it on all the time between takes and getting caught in their dressing room. Shortly after Jen & Scott announced a separation. I looked for this earlier, but could not find it--its at least 5 years old! If this was them, and Ted knew how she kicked hubby to the curb, that probably was the start of his hatred for JG.

I would say, if I had to link the AIAs, at least Blake Lively has been rumored to have an inappropriate relationship with a director--may be a Lainey or NY Post blind? And Ashley Greene, as Ted has hinted, loves the limelight and would do anything to be famous.....so maybe she has?! Dunno about Vanexxa except she is a working beard--most likely for the fame.

Rita, Montreal said...

Tara - I'll try and find it... It's not on this site under JenGarner, it could be useful to look it up again, who knows, it might give us hints for this Blind.

As for the AIAs, they usually have a stronger link to the Blind. So, what do Ashley Greene, Blake Lively and Vanessa Hudgens have in common with Bernadine, i.e. Rosie Huntington-W?

Not beards... most women in hollywood in public relationships are beards... Victoria's Secret? Modeling? Not Michael Bay b/c of Vanessa... or have we missed something...

Tara said...

Ted probably knows that all three have given up the goods for roles on their shows/movies. You go--find that blind! My eyes hurt from all the sleuthing today.

Rita, Montreal said...

Unfortunately, Ted`s Blinds do not go further than 2008. Will ease my eyes with a bit of True Blood playing... right now. Wonder if Sookeh, and Beeehl have been blinds. Have to find Jen Garner`s blind.

Sisters, have you ever had any doubts about a BV being linked JenG.?

thomasonclan said...

at least 2 of the AIA's have this in common...both vanessa & ashley has nude pics come out from some old modelling days...not sure about blake...but the lingerie / nude comments could be the link between the AIA's & the vic secret model doing trans 3??

Rita, Montreal said...

To Tara - toot-toot, tooding my horn again this morning, for I am on Bitch-Backs again (re: Jake G's new movie trailer...)

This morning, I thought of something regarding this blind. Like Jen Garner, Blake is on a hit tv show, like Jen, Vanessa was on hit movie with sequences (re: Electra), and finally, like JenG, Ashley Green is all about being buff, and doing buff mags... that is how Jen in the beginning of her career with Alias found her niche...
What do you think?

Tara said...

Under Blake Lively on this site, there is a Lainey blind about an actress that had been used and discarded by Harvey Weinstein (suspect). The best guess for the actress was Gretchen Mol, but he had his sights on a new actress he wanted to "help" segue into film, and that was suspected to be Blake Lively. I really think all these AIA girls have just done something horrible to get famous. Ashley and Vanessa both had the nude pic leaks and Blake may have this Harvey situation. He's Gross. Guess most of these power players are.

Here's an article about Harvey Weinstein throwing the party for The Private Lives of Pippa Lee....which Blake Lively happens to be in.

And here she is wearing Harvey's wife's clothing line.

Rita, Montreal said...

So Harvey finally got her? Is that how she got her role next Ben Affleck?

If that indeed happened, how absolutely gross of her to wear the wife's clothes. Then again, maybe the wifey is part of it.

In regards to the blind though, still can't find a convincing link of all 3 AIA to Michael Bay and Bernadine. Maybe we got stock on the wrong movie?

Other sequels filming right now, or movie with potential sequels?

Tara said...

The AIAs don't have to be connected to Bay or BCB. They sometimes are a red herring or have been embroiled in similar scandals. IMO, of course. He knows they drive us nuts and at times they are dead ends. Ted can be pretty cheeky!

Brittany said...

I also think this is a T3 blind. Ted says no one is going to remember this girl when the next movie comes out which really makes me think that Rosie chick. She'll probably be pretty forgettable in T3.

Rita are you the 'poofing panties' chick from Ted's BBs.

Rita, Montreal said...

Yes, yes. And my panties do go poof at the sight of Toothy!

Got to admit, Ted is spoiling me this week. I've been on the BB's 3 times in 2 days!

We have to ask him for more clues on this Blind. The Blake Lively does not connect with the others. The girl never posed for playboy, and her parents, who are in the business, taught her VERY well how to control her image.

Up until last winter, Blake had always said that she would never pose nude, and all of a sudden, a few months ago, there is talk of her posing for Playboy. Heck, I would buy it: would want to know if those are real for sure!

The Spie said...

Getting back to the topic, I'm still pushing Beckinsale for Survivor. She's got a track record of sleeping around for jobs, after all, and you can't deny that her success came completely after Pearl Harbor. Her professional success level is still higher than it was pre-Bay, regardless of what's happened. To put it Enty-style, she was C- List at best before Pearl Harbor, got up to A- circa Underworld, and is now B to B-. That points to her being Survivor; her career didn't go down any lavatories under well after her Close Encounter of the Bay Kind, and the blind clearly states that Director attempts to go for the blacklist pretty quickly.

I don't think Survivor is Garner because of Ted's white-hot hatred for her. If Survivor is Garner, I don't think Ted's going to leave a blank statement out there without making any digs. I know I harp a lot about what's missing in a Ted blind, but he has a consistent style, and not taking a shot at Garner, even in a BV...I don't see him having that kind of restraint in this case.

Now, I may be off and Survivor is Garner (and let's face it, Survivor is the only thing uncertain about this blind right now, which is why we're spending so much time guessing that). I acknowledge that Garner's a great candidate. My argument is that she doesn't fit the style in which she's presented. Beckinsale does, and she has the MO of sleeping with the boss to get roles.

Sorry about that; just laying out my case in a clearer fashion.

Rita, Montreal said...

To Spie - I didn't know Beckinsale slept around, but then again, I think they all do.

I do agree for Garner though. If this blink came out 3 years ago, I would've said that she was a success, but as of 2010, not so much. 1 poorly done movie a year, and rumors of a marriage always at the brink of breaking...

I will stick to my ScarJo for the survivor, she is more A list.

Hopefully, we'll get more hints to the blind soon.

Tara said...

I totally get where you are coming from on this Spie, she does scream more desperate and willing to go there, my main prob is just how Beckinsale has never wowed me to where, even if she was in a blockbuster, I am able to consider her near A list. I would agree with B status, and maybe A recognition at one point. Though Ted doesn't say one way or the other, so it very well could be Garner or Beckinsale. Ted does hate JG so much, so he probably would make it more clear if it were her.

However, Blake Lively did just work with Ben Affleck in The Town or whatever its called. He was even the director of this movie. That could be a Garner connection. It could also be just a Bay connection with Ben having a history with Bay on both Pearl Harbor and Armageddon.

One thing I am fairly certain of, however, is that respectfully, the survivor can't be ScarJo. I can't say enough how two of her most noted performances were significantly prior to working with Bay. Said with love, Rita:)

Now can we get some of this heat over in the Princess Gold Zinger thread? I'm trying to breathe new life to that currently.

LMS130 said...

Hi, this is a little OT, but what's Ted's beef with Garner? I always suspected she wasn't as wholesome as she wants to appear, but never heard any dirt on her (other than her divorce from Foley). Care to share?

Tara said...

Hi! He has said she is really nasty to the media. She is uncooperative and when the cameras stop rolling or shooting, the claws and fangs come out. And her having that family/america's sweetheart image probably just fuels his hatred because he has seen the other side of her.

The Spie said...

Rita: If you don't believe Tara, please believe me. ScarJo got an Oscar nomination three years...repeat, three years...before she worked with Bay. She had two hit critically-acclaimed films before working with Bay. She was considered no worse than B+ List before The Island. She does not owe one bit of her success to Michael Bay. She's not Survivor.

steph148 said...

Minor quibble: ScarJo has never been nominated for an Oscar, but she has been nominated for four Golden Globes (three of which came before The Island was released).

Of course, this doesn't detract from the argument that she was an established actress before working with Bay and thus unlikely to be the Survivor.

Tara said...

For myself and probably Spie as well, I can clarify that I mean Oscar nominated films, not personal oscar noms. GWaPE and LiT were both Oscar nommed. Sorry for the confusion.

Kudos on the Golden Globe point as well, that adds to the argument against her. She just didn't need to go there.

blurry vice said...

We need more clues here than what we have.

rita - the terry tush trade comment is under one of the TTT posts. If you dont see the discussion under one TTT post, check one of the other ones.

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
Please help! I am stuck on Bernadine Couch-Butt, her pig of a director and the ultimate survivor. For the life of me, what do any of these three people have to do with Blake Lively! Please give us a hint, your Blind Vices are addicting, and at times vice-inducing. In a very good way.
—Rita

Dear Blaking It to the Top:
Great hair, all around? Or, you know, Bernie and "The Ultimate Survivor" are both young and way hot in Hollywood, with a sometimes sexy reputation, a lot like Miss Lively."

Tara said...

Garner and Beckinsale do not qualify for "Young Hollywood" anymore. Boo. Bring in the replacement nominees (not ScarJo though).

jellybean1231 said...

This could be Michael Bay but the woman in it would not be Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. She is dating Jason Statham and Ted said that both people involved are single. Back to the drawing board...

Tara said...

Just because they are getting down doesn't mean they are together. I doubt if Bay is that much of a pig, he can choose one woman. Probably more likely to have a buffet to choose from whenever he likes. Therefore, what they do aside from when they are together would be their own biz.

I just ran across this........
Michael Bay directed a Victoria's Secret commercial that debuted at their annual lingerie show! This must be where they met. The show is around Christmas, and this was 2009. So he meets her, shoots the commercial, promises her all sorts of crap, hits that, then puts her in T3 when Fox starts mouthing off. She cannot stop kissing his arse due to what he will do to her, regardless of whether she is in love with Statham or it is just all in fun.

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
Here in the U.K., the Daily Mail is reporting that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham are moving in together! Does that make them steady partners in your book? What do you think of this pairing? My rescue dog Jet is very curious to know! Surely neither could be a B.V. either, could they? Jason seems so, well, nice, funny and normal!
—K

Dear Pow! Bang! Splat!
Well, we all know how reliable the Daily Mail can be, but I do hear the two are très into each other. Why wouldn't they be? He's a huge action star; she's becoming the newest gratuitously hot chick in a Michael Bay flick. Perfect match, no? But c'mon, babe, don't you know by now that just because a couple is happy (or seemingly so), they can still make time for Vicey goodness?"

blurry vice said...

Rememer - the AIAs are not always hints. Ted has said that. There is not always a link there. Don't over analyze.

So - top suspects in my opinion -

Rose Huntington-Whitely
Michael Bay
ScarJo

Tara said...

Blurry, with all due respect, why do you think the survivor is ScarJo? I am just curious to know what draws you to her when much of her initial success came prior to when the supposed encounter(s) would have occurred. I understand her sexuality and forwardness might influence reasoning. I genuinely want to know, because, as you can see in my posts above, I am staunchly against her as Survivor currently, and I would like to get some insight to see if I am overlooking something with her!

OwlFace said...

I really like Rose McGowan for this one!

blurry vice said...

Tara - good points. I did not read thoroughly before.

Tara said...

So Ted gave a big hint in the BBs today, saying "think pink" for a "couch" casting that turned into an Oscar win. Ted's clue would likely mean Gwyneth Paltrow (could she be the survivor?) for Shakespeare in Love, making the dude Harvey Weinstein. The film with several sequels would be Scream 4 or maybe Halloween III. Blake Lively would be an AIA because it is rumored they are sleeping together as well, due to her wearing Marchesa for everything and landing that big "Next Big Thing" fashion cover. Now the only thing throwing me off is that Weinstein is married to Georgina Chapman (Marchesa designer), and this BV says no one would be hurt because neither has a steady partner. Now maybe their relationship is a business one, since he is rumored to screw anything that moves. In that case, no one would get hurt.

Is this a viable option or am I reading into his hint? It seemed clear as day, I just can't work out all the details yet. Anyone wanna hop on the train for a minute?

roseyf said...

Tara, I do think the Think Pink casting couch is Gwyneth, but I don't think it's related to this one. Unfortunately, casting couches are way more common in Hwood than just one director. I think the fact that Blake Lively is AIA'd steers us away from Harvey Weinstein, and Rosie/Michael Bay just fit this one too well.

Tara said...

Thanks Rosey. Just seems unnecessary for him to point to Goopy unless he were giving a big hint to an existing blind. I agree it's a hard sell, but it is worthy of consideration:) I appreciate your input!

hordac said...

I have to say this was a very interesting tidbit thrown out by Ted today. But agree that Gwynnie, who must be the casting couch Oscar winner, is not Bernadine.

Jamee said...

Harvey Weinstein is a producer and studio head, not a director. So he isn't the director in the Couch-Butt blind, and obviously neither is Gwynneth the Survivor. Besides that, he also doesn't really do shoot em ups/action, like said director in this blind.

The blind about Harvey Weinstein is from a Lainey blind called "Casting Couch." Go to the Lainey link on this site and find it. There's a long convo about how that is very obviously Weinstein/Georgina Chapman (wife, Marchesa designer), Gretchen Mol, and the top guess for the current "It Girl" is Blake Lively. THAT is the link to Blake Lively as an AIA for this blind. It's widely rumored that Weinstein did the exact same thing with Gwynneth, hence the "think pink" for her Oscar gown hint in the BB today.

It's pretty certain that this Couch-Butt blind is Michael Bay and Rosie, especially that BB response from Ted about her that someone posted before. If she's dating Jason Stathom, it doesn't mean they're serious or together, and she's obviously been sleeping with MB long before he came around if it started when MB was directing the Victoria's Secret commercial. As for the Survivor, I cannot more adamantly disagree with this being ScarJo. I remember when The Island came out and I just thought, why is this serious and newly respected actress doing this horrible action shit?? I thought it was a step down for her. I really don't think this is her. Yes, she's probably the most successful one who has worked with him, but there is no way that every single actress to have ever worked with Bay has slept with him for a part. He's done a lot of big-budget films with a lot of stars. I can't think of who the Survivor might be here. I guess maybe Kate Beckinsale, but I would not call her successful, then or now. I can't even remember what she's done lately besides that Underworld crap. But I guess that's a step up from whatever she was doing before him, and I wouldn't put it past her. But the Jen Garner/JJ Abrams connections are also decent, but I agree that Ted would not pass up a nice dig at JGarn! I need more info!

Tara said...

Hordac I may have been confusing; I meant to question gwyn as the survivor.

I know MB is in the bag for this and I am on board with that given my history on the thread; just got a little thrown w/the bb clue today and thought it was worth a ponder. We can consider this close to solved....just need to name the survivor!! And I'd like to know if Ted has a Goopy blind for her ladder climbing antics.

The Spie said...

Tara: According to the Master List, yeah, Goopy's a BV, but it was a "long time ago". Confirmed on December 3rd of last year. Maybe Blurry will pull out something from the archives that she's a candidate for. Or maybe the casting couch mention might be a hint.

As for Survivor, Ted's totally got me confused on that one. The whole Young Hollywood mention nuked my best two candidates, Beckinsale and Garner, and I don't feel like trolling through Michael Bay's iMDB entry to find other potential candidates. I have a rather weak stomach.

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
No names of course, but to your knowledge, have any "casting couch" castings resulted in a Best Actress Oscar win? (Or, to be fair, Best Actor?) I still have a hard time thinking of the most famous and respected actresses out there participate, but as you always say, it is Hollywood.
—Justine

Dear Bingo:
Yes, and a very famous one directly resulted several years ago. Think pink."


Gwyneth Paltrow? But she was already a BV in the past and the survivor doesn't have one. This was yesterday, and I am in a hurry, sorry if this is already discussed

Caz1310 said...

Hee hee wouldn't it be funny if Goopy Gwyn was a casting couch BV considering her high n mighty ways. Mr Paltrow has cheated on her before with Natalie Imbruglia too. That pink dress was absolutely horrid. Still doesn't explain the mystery of how on earth she won an Oscar that year - the couch may have got her the role but surely one can't win an Oscar that way. Don't think the blind was suggesting this...just a comment.

Ted just said that Megan Fox has no BVs and Rosie has one. So, this is pretty much confirmed.

directingtips said...

"Top suspects: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (featuring Michael Bay and ?)" - are you even serious? you mean you don't know who survived???!! this is just as obvious as what Mothballs stand for. SCARLETT JOHANSSON. in The Island. Great movie btw. I think maybe for once Bay did not focus as much on ffffing his lead but on making his movie. that one is one of my favourites (hate the fact Michael Bay had anything to do with it though - such a jerk)
