Awful Truth referred to US in a Bitch-Back!

Thanks sistah2 for catching the link ... in today's bitch-back, Ted linked to us when answering a letter about Browhilda Frown Free.  -


Dear Ted:
What's Browhilda Frown-Free been up to? Is she still professionally bearding?
—Martha in Chicago
Dear Vintaged Girl:
Desperately. Ain't really workin' for her, either. Hear that, gals?



 
Thanks Ted, we love ya!!!

thanks to reader Brittany for pointing it out to us. I never would have noticed that - I wonder if Ted has linked us before?
anyway see the broomhilda post for more info - this is an old one that just popped up today for no reason? dont think so.....

Brittany said...

Your welcome.

I'm thinking this was deliberate for the "Hear that, gals?" part. Pretty random though. I just clicked the lick because I never heard that name and was kinda confused when it brought me here. Well anyways, good for you ladies and your hard work.

Tara said...

That is awesome that you caught that! Oh, goodness, can we expect an influx of crazed Pattinson and Lautner fans infiltrating Parrish and Nevis' threads? Eek!

Caz1310 said...

Yee hah- congrats gals. Good spotting. I imagine Ted or his minions would check in on us from time to time, as we are largely dissecting his every word and his BV's are by far the most featured here. Considering that all of us here are switched on and contribute worthy interesting and entertaining things he would be in his best interests to see how we're perceiving him, what's getting us fired up and how close we are to accurately guessing the identities. E would also monitor the responses on their own site for the same reasons. Just a thought.

blurry vice said...

Thanks Brittany. I check the bitch backs but wouldnt have clicked on that link.

I think the eonline archives are so messed up that Ted has to link out of his site to get to his BVs. He linked to defamer for the old Harland Fuss a few weeks ago. I think the reason our BFF post was picked to link is bc we don't have a top supect or a photo up of anyone - it was never solved. Otherwise the E legal team wouldn't have let Ted get away with it.

Rita, Montreal said...

Bravo sisters. Proof that Ted pays attention. Maybe he could hire you guys to put in order his own archives? He has been promising an overview of all blinds with eliminated guesses for quite some time now.

Meredith said...

I was just wondering, would the "Desperately" answer point to any of the Desperate Housewives cast? I think that Eva is good for someone else, but it was just an errant thought there. Bear with me for not knowing the entire history of all the blinds. I'm trying to keep up, lol, but there are lots to shuffle through!

blurry vice said...

Good point, but Eva Longoria doesn't fit in age range. See that post for details.

hordac said...

how cool was this! I didn't click on the link so didn't realize till I got here. Nice shout out girls!

House of Brat said...

Maybe it's Diane Lane. Isn't she really a lesbian...

raccoonelephant said...

Haha I noticed that too, E! probably uses the site to keep track of what they have already said, since their site sucks. And BIE rocks!

raccoonelephant said...

by sucks, i mean hard to navigate with crappy search. BIE is easy to use!

sistah2 said...

I agree - I always found their site hard to navigate, every time they change it its not an improvement either

blurry vice said...

I know, I recently came across a bitch-back from the summer of 2009 and someone asked when the blind vice archive would be coming out. Ted said they were working on it. Meanwhile we have a lot of info here. We still have TONS of vintage BVs we have to put up, it's an ongoing effort which requires time. But come on, we are not getting paid. Can't the people at E online pay someone to get all of the old blind vices together? If I was in a paid position at E I would be able to devote time to it, and would get it done. Maybe they should hire me!

Brittany said...

Hey blurry how about a weekly vintage unsolved blind? You said there were a lot so if it were a weekly thing it would keep everyone active on this site a while. Plus everyone would be able to try and focus on solving one BV instead a bunch at one time. You could make it like a new site feature.

Michelle said...

blurry:

Who knows? Maybe someone at E! is reading this right now and you'll be contacted soon ;)They could certainly use you over there!!!

Caz1310 said...

Brittany that's a great idea.

blurry vice said...

Great idea Brittany! I don't have time to do that many at a time. In the past I have spent a day on the vintage ones and put like 5-6 up on one day. I covered a bunch of the ones I remember, ones people ask for, and ones that sound like they could be relevant to someone Ted has said is a BV etc. Problem is all 4 of us are BUSY with work/kids/issues.

So... yes maybe a weekly vintage would work out. On the weekends maybe? Will try to do at least one this weekend and make it a weekly thing! :)

The Spie said...

Blurry: Sounds weird to say this, but instead of weekends, how about Monday noon, or perhaps Tuesday? That way, Friday afternoons and weekends are freed up for the latest BV, and we get a beginning-of-week pick-me-up. Traffic does tend to die here between Tuesday and Friday afternoon, and this could keep the flow going.

Rita, Montreal said...

Hello sisters,

I am features on the BBs today (Saturday), and Ted very clearly confirmed Dax Sheppard's vice. Here is the link: http://ca.eonline.com/uberblog/the_awful_truth/b201088_bitch-back_kristen_bell_dating_dud.html
Congrats again on your reference.

sistah2 said...

I read that but how does it confirm which BV he was?

The Spie said...

Yeah, there's nothing in Ted's remark that states which BV Shepard is, just that he is a BV, which Ted stated a number of months ago (check the master list). We need something to confirm that he's Harkness Hose, whereupon a number of other BVs would fall into place.

That being said, when I checked the master list to see if Shepard was already on there, I found that I'd lapsed in my responsibility in re one Alexander Skarsgard. So I did my thing in the Nelly Fang thread. Tl;dr: He's Nelly.

Rita, Montreal said...

To sistah2: I think this confirms Harkness Hose, If I remember correctly he was first features in Kate Hudson's blind. Princess Gold Zinger?

Rita, Montreal said...

The Spie _ I always thought Nelly Fang was that McQueen kid from Vampire Diaries: in one of his answers Ted talks about the Latino heritage, as well as Nelly being of some sort of Hollywood acting royalty. And didn't Ted not long ago state (or un-state..?) that Nelly has no fangs? Does that ring a bell? The McQueen kid was also spotted with his blond co-star early on this summer smooching it up for the cameras, right after the rumours had become stronger. Come to think of it, so has Skarsgard with his blonde chick as well. But if I can find the answer Ted gave regarding fangs, this might prove or disprove definitely A. Skargard.

sistah2 said...

anyway I still dont get how one could think Ted's letter of the other day reveals HH to be D. Shepherd. It just doesn't.

Rita, Montreal said...

Sistah2 - My original letter to Ted was much more detailed about Dax Sheppard's "prominent" vice. Although I don't remember the specifics, I had sent him my comment a few weeks ago, I do remember though writing about the "prominence and kink of D. Sheppard's sex habits" and how can a sweet-looking gal like K. Bell would fall for him: was expecting Ted to say something like Kristen has her vices too, and is not so sweet... Was surprised by answer.

Tara said...

Correct me if I am wrong, Kate Hudson was recently confirmed to not have a BV, right? Ted said her habits were pretty out in the open and there was no need. I believe that is documented in the PGZ thread.

The Spie said...

Rita: First of all, Princess Gold-Zinger ISN'T Kate Hudson. Ted stated a year and a half after PGZ that Hudson wasn't a BV. That's why we're confused over whether or not Shepard is Harkness Hose, and how we need confirmation of this.

Please read the AIAs for each blind and the Master List. You have a habit of recommending possibilities that have either been AIAed or confirmed as a BV before a particular blind, Rita, and, frankly, it's getting a bit annoying having to correct you, like we did with Bertha Rose. It's also dropping the signal-to-noise ratio tremendously, which makes our work at solving these much harder.

Second, I'm working, again, from pure logic and process of elimination when it comes to ASkars/Nelly. ASkars' blind has to be between two certain, verifiable dates, and the only one between those two dates that he fits well is Nelly Fang. You want to argue that he isn't? Then make a case for the two remote possibilities I left open in the Nelly thread.

Rita, Montreal said...

1- As a newbie, checked the Kate Hudson link, read the top, still said top guess KHudson for Princess Gold Zinger, and top guess for Harkness was Dax Sheppard: means Ted's answer yesterday in the BB is confirmation.

2 - As the sisters have started posting Vintage Blinds, we are bound to change our guesses based on new info that Ted, other blolums, and other media outlets have written lately. Every blind is a work in progress, we get more info, we see things differently.

3 - As an "oldie" to this site, you have often corrected newbies and reminded them of already opted top guesses. Getting tired of it? Well, that's dealing with new comers whether in the business world, in a group of friends, or family clan, you have to offer support and additional information of what was. No worries, if you are getting tired of it, someone else would do it, in lesser words. Or not. No biggie. We pick-up on the new posts, read through them and participate.

3 - You are working on resolving, I am suggesting on solutions that could be looked into. Like I said in my older post, and this as combination of conversational momentum in a forum, we share thoughts on subject, and some lead to solutions, some don't.

As I said, I thought Nelly was McQueen based on Ted's answers, and as stated, I am looking for links of what I remember reading in the BBs. Perfectly fine doing it, some reading my posts will remember something else that might lead to a resolution. I think what this forum is all about? right?

AshleyG said...

Just wanted to quickly add my congrats to the sisters for getting linked from Ted, that really is awesome! Now I have to say that im sorry Rita, but I also dont see how in any way your BB letter confirms Dax Sheperd (sp?) as HH. I know that Kate Hudson cant be PGZ, but even if she could I dont see the connection with your letter. Not being hostile at all, just trying to see if im missing something! Now im heading to check out TheSpies's work on Nelly Fang, it really is great the way you put everything together logically. Last thing, thanks sisters for using Brittany's idea on vintage bvs!

sistah2 said...

Again , hate to beat a dead horse here, but I realllly dont think Ted confirmed anything regarding Dax S in regards to the Harkness Hose BV.

Rita, Montreal said...

Ashley - Than which one do you think Dax Sheppard's BV is? Might help even more to solve it if it's another BV that was looked over. Ted did confirm that Dax was a BV, but not necessarily a bad one.

blurry vice said...

Hi everyone!

1- I don't think that letter tells us anything new either. we still think dax is a good fit for HH but no confirmation there

2 - kate hudson was never a bv. i updated the post to make that MORE clear. she was our original guess for PGZ but no longer is.

3 - spie good work on nelly/askars, i had pinpointed the dates in august but didn't have time for the "spie" timeline analysis... LOL.

4 - lastly - i put up a vintage... for now it is up on a sunday... i have some spare time on weekends so that is when I can most likely get one up. enjoy!

blurry vice said...

Moving on to another subject, not sure where to discuss this yet. But did anyone see this letter about kelsey grammer - maybe this couple is a bv? I don't know much about them but I know there are a few they could fit I am sure...



"Dear Ted:
Did Kelsey Grammer's recent divorce from his wife have anything to do with her joining the cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? I can't believe he was supportive, or happy, about this blatant act of fame whoring. She always did seem to want the spotlight, such as butting into interviews on the Emmy red carpet when she should have just been standing there with her mouth shut and a smile on her face. Her appearance on this reality show just seems like her last ditch effort to ride Kelsey's coattails into fame. Got any inside info?
—JR

Dear Real Househusbands:
I'm sure it didn't help, but that's definitely not the duo's only problem."

AshleyG said...

Rita - I do think that Dax is HH, I just dont think the letter confirms that at all, I think thats all anyone is saying, since you said that your letter to Ted confirms Dax as HH.

Caz1310 said...

Ooh a new celeb to discuss...I very vaguely recall an article of Grammer ages ago suggesting that his character on that show based in Seattle (oh hell I've forgotten its title LOL even though I watched it for years - Niles, Daphne, his dad, Eddie the dog!!!) isn't far from what he's like in reality (obnoxious, egotistical, arrogant) etc. Whilst none of these are BV's I also vaguely recall a problem with alcohol but have nothing to support this.

Tara said...

I wonder if Grammar and Donastacci (right?) co-starred in a BV. Any couple BVs that might fit?

I also firmly believe HH is Dax, and since he started dating Kristen Bell in late 2007, she very well could be PGZ. Since there is nothing crazy obnoxious about PGZ, Ted probably wouldn't have anything too harsh to say about her (other than the fact that she may be into the unconventional). Taking these thoughts to their proper threads now!

The Spie said...

Camille was pretty low-profile when she was married to Kelsey. Ted usually doesn't assign BV names to those types of people.

It really isn't clear whether or not Kelsey is a BV. If he is, I'd say it'd be an older blind, while Frazier was still on the air, and it'd more likely to have something to do with drugs than cheating, or maybe a combination of both. Remember that Ted said that Heath Ledger's blind was a combo of drugs and sex, so we'd probably be looking for a similar type for Kelsey.

And, Rita, you don't seem to realize that I'm approaching the solution to the Nelly blind from the other direction. The question you're trying to answer is, "Who is Nelly Fang?" The question that I've answered was "Which BV belongs to Alexander Skarsgard?" The answer to that question, shown through process of elimination and logic, is Nelly Fang. By answering my question, I've answered yours.

Bendiss said...

Where is the Master List? Is that a list of Ted's nicknames with the top suspects and the AIA's? I would love to see that. All I can find is the List of Ted's Reveals.

The Spie said...

Bendiss: That's what I call the Master List. It's a little shorter to type.

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
So I'm thinking. Sometimes you need to Blind a Vice for legal reasons. But do you think that in a lot of cases the perp just wouldn't care? Or sometimes is it just fun to watch us go mad trying to guess?
—CasaFan

Dear Getting Tricky:
Oh, they'd care all right. It would—sadly—be career-altering stuff if any of the Vices got revealed. But I do get a good chuckle when people guess the really hard ones. Not much gets past you guys."

The Spie said...

Uh, folks, before we get too far, we missed something: Ted said in July that Kelsey Grammer wasn't a BV. So let's push the abort button on the speculation.

Michelle said...

Hi Spie, I am also trying to approach some of these BVs the same way. Of course, I am still very much a novice at this...but if you have a moment to check my comments under Charmaine Chuck up, I'd be interested in your (and anyone else's) thoughts.

The Spie said...

Oh, Ted...now I've got to go figure out which BV Ian Somerhalder is. No on 11/03/09, yes today...well, not married, so that helps.

Michelle said...

Spie: Can you tell me where your new comments on Nelly Fang are? I checked under the comments on the Nelly Fang blind..Am I missing something? I have a feeling I am long past the statute of limitations for how long I can plead stupidity....but is there somewhere else I should be looking for it?

Thanks!!

Michelle

The Spie said...

Michelle: Nelly Fang's gone to two pages of comments. Click on the text at the top of the thread page that says "Newest", and it'll load up the latest comments.

Tara said...

Somerhalder, yes. I am so on that train. Thanks for the reminder on Grammer. Ian is much more interesting. Ted loves him, so I doubt it is violent or womanizing.

blurry vice said...

YES Spie if you could do a timeline for Ian Somerhalder also, now that we have thse dates... that would be great. Nov 2009 Ted said he would be one soon. Now he is. I think we would be able to narrow it down pretty well and have a good chance at getting that one spot on once we narrow it down.

Also - wanted to let everyone know as far as vintage blinds - we also DO plan on doing some vintage Laineys also. I had started doing some vintage Laineys on here a long time ago and didn't get to continue with that. Coming soon!

The Spie said...

Blurry: Already done in the Buella Band/Kelly Guten-Shoes/Drew Smoulder 'n' Such thread, since that's the BV he's in. Pretty easy one given those dates. If Ted had said two months earlier that he hadn't been a BV, it would have been a lot harder.

Rita, Montreal said...

Need to share this with people who appreciate the bbs. I am on it 3 TIMES this morning. wow. thanks Ted!

The Spie said...

Rita: I got in today as well (my first time, actually). I took a nice flyer and it paid off. I think we now know who Pepper Harthman is.

Rita, Montreal said...

Congrats Spie. I don`t know if that was 'our' Tara as well who was also on the BBs, it seems that she had won a TrueBlood gift! Very cool of Ted.

Tara said...

Woot woot--that was me:) I guess today was a BIE BB day!! We dominated!

Rita, Montreal said...

Congrats. What did the gift bag include?

Tara said...

$300 Hallmark gift card, slippers, and 2 recordable storybooks. Those will be good for gifts or to give to my boys for Christmas:)

blurry vice said...

Tara - awesome!

Spie - nice work on the Ian SOmerhalder BV!

Also, to everyone - I added a section on the "list of ted's bv reveals" post. It's the poeple who have been proven to be a BV according to the timeline which they were said to NOT be a BV and then confirmed as one. I have Taylor LAutner, Rob Pattinson, Ian Somerhalder, and ASkars on that list. I know we were working on one other one recently and I forget what it is. Don't have time right now, kids climbing on me. In short, if anyone can add to the people who have been "timeline proven" then let me know. Thanks Spie and the others that have done those.

hordac said...

Congrats Tara! I was hoping it was you!

The Spie said...

Blurry: Add Zac Efron to that list. When I did the elimination, the only candidates left were Jackie Bouffant and Parrish Maguire. Since I proved Lautner was Parrish, that proves Zefron is Jackie.

The Spie said...

And, oh, yeah, uh...do I dare bring up the whole Viggo Mortensen situation? Either he's Chet Chick-Muncher, or Ted made a mistake in September 2009 by saying he wasn't a BV. Maybe a note along with that one?

blurry vice said...

Thanks Spie, I remembered Zac Efron after that. And yes Viggo.

Viking Girl said...

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but here goes:
I wrote to Ted C and whilst he answered one part of my letter, he flat out avoided/ignored one of my questions. ( It was a straight ''has so and so ever been a bind vice?'' ).

I really enjoy trying to solve the BVs on this site - I am a fan of The Spie school of elimination/logic - but getting any clues out of Mr C requires a totally different kind of discipline. Have any of you who managed to get a useful response from Ted got any advice as to how to ask questions, or how not to?
