Blind Vice: Condemning Celeb Is a Slut Himself!

New from Ted today...

Blind Vice: Condemning Celeb Is a Slut Himself!
Always OutnumberedDon't you just hate it when Hollywood stars start acting like their moralistic poop doesn't stink? You know, like the Midwestern evangelical-types hating on all things gay when they're having drugged-out sex themselves with masseurs and restroom johns?
How sad that Mooney Van Dangle, megasuccessful movie star, has now added his name to this sorryass roster of judgers who live in glass houses...
Mooney, who's been very adept at hiding his private life—which consists of randy things Seymour Plow-Me-More would be most impressed by—has recently been in the news for coldly condemning a few of his relatives, one in particular for her arguably skanky behavior. Well, if certain sex clubs' walls could talk!
Typically, in Hollywood/civilian battles past, the poor relation has been treated badly by the press because she's (a) not famous and (b) a woman. Never a good combo in quick-to-judge America. After all, Mooney is not only very wealthy, professionally celebrated and quite well-known, he's a man! So, he must be the one who's right in this battle of headlines, right?
Wrong.
Just put it this way: If the gullible readers gobbling up these supposedly lurid accusations (regarding the woman's activities) had any idea what her blood-related detractor was up to, they'd certainly see there's another side to this unfortunately morally played-out story.
Like, maybe those who live to expose, strut and display their family jewels—and get it on with guys in public places (jeez, what has Seymour started, already, a damn testosterone trend, or what?)—shouldn't be throwing sanctimonious stones?
Let's be clear, we don't have a problem with what either fighting side's up to here—we don't judge, whatever floats somebody's hoochy boat—that's up to them. But when one of the castigators starts acting like he doesn't know his way around the salacious sides of life, well, that's just what the Awful Truth is for.

And It Ain't: Kevin Costner, John Travolta, John Mayer



Top suspect: Laurence Fishburne

It's gotta be Laurence Fishburne and his daughter who's in porn, right?

keely said...

That's what I thought! Is his daughter considered a 'not famous'? hmmm... I guess she's famous now.

MM said...

I think she's considered not famous since she got into porn to make a name for herself.

hordac said...

100% agree this is Fishburne and daughter

Tara said...

Word, peeps.

pomme said...

like every one,Fishburne and his porn actress daughter!
i know on other blogs,they also named Christian Bale(because he had family trouble )but here the guy looks moralist , woman's behaviour/activity not very "classy" and Bale never talked about what happened or talked bad about his mum and his mum has a normal job!

Rita, Montreal said...

Don't think it is Fishburne, I don't know about you guys, but in my book Fishburne is not "megasuccessful movie star, very wealthy and professionally celebrated"... My only guess would be Mel Gibson that USED to fit the bill, what other chauvinistic mega-successful actors, loaded with money, maybe from the midwest, would more fit this picture?

Also, I think Fishburne has had some money woes a few years back...

pomme said...

@Rita: interesting guess!Gibson is "very" catholic,his ex-girlfriend is a gold finger

Rita, Montreal said...

Pomme - a few months ago I would've said Mel Gibson, now, I don't know who this fits, but Fishburne does not fit all that well, for he is not a supermegastar and rich... Another guess would be Tom Cruise for his Scientology preachings (they claim to treat you successfully for homosexuality), but that would really be a too-big a joke, and Tom is another BV.

Does anyone know who in the past 24 months in the business has demonstrated noted tendencies to the right, must be a superfamous actor, and very rich.O ne that comes to mind is Jon Voight... maybe. Any guesses?

jill said...

I would consider Laurence Fishburne to be super famous. He's been in a lot of movies!

C said...

Can't be Mel. Ted says the relative is blood-related. No good guesses to offer ... this is a tough one! I don't like the Lawrence Fishbourne guess. Seems way too easy.

Rita, Montreal said...

We should start linking the AIA to our guesses: if it is Fishburne, can someone tell me what he has in common with Costner, Travolta and Mayer?

All 3 are mostly BVs for hyper-sexual activities, Costner and Travolta go for the same sex undercover, but Mayer freaking Tweets about it.

Any movies in common?

Whitney said...

Fishburne seems like a good guess until you factor in that he hasn't said more than he was disappointed (she's the one who threw out all the quotes that were allegedly from him) and there aren't multiple relatives.

Ross Family Five said...

Rita, I had not heard this about Kevin Costner! Really??

As for this BV, I keep coming back to the Baldwins...Billy or Stephen (which ever is the religious "tee-totaller") ... but can't think of a female relative they've insulted? Just Alec with his own daughter, but I don't think anyone considers him to be uber moralistic?

Alejandra said...

I don't remember hearing anything about Kevin Costner and same sex lovers- I did hear about him and his happy ending massages

Tara said...

Fishburne was in the ridiculously successful Matrix trilogy, arguably one of the most successful film franchises ever. Together the movies made over a billion and a half dollars. Not to mention, he has been on CSI for the last 3 years, taking over for Grissom--earning a recent $14 mil contract for a two year stint. I'd say if he never wanted to work again, he would be just fine.

I know it seems too easy, but Ted does have a way of making things more obvious when the BVer deserves to be outed (ie for being mean or hypocritical). I would entertain a runner up, but so far, IMO no one else listed fits like Fishburne. The key is to see who else has a blood related female relative who has been in the tabloids for scandalous sexual behavior. I can't really think of anyone else right now.

remyfire said...

Immediately thought of Laurence Fishburne, he is also supposed to be super religious and he has publicly disowned his daughter. But then again I think its too easy to be them....

hordac said...

i don`t see anyone else fitting this BV so well as Fishburne and would argue that he is definitely megasuccesful and rich. i didn't check this out but i think he may have been nominated for an Oscar for What's Love Got to do With It,
the Tina Turner story.

Rita, Montreal said...

Fishburne does fit for most, but a. he's not very rich or a MEGA superstar (that would be Clooney, Pitt, etc), b. even if the Matrix made a lot of money, he didn't.

As for Ross - a Baldwin brother would've been a fabulous guess, except for Alec, all the other brothers are dirt poor and trying their luck with any reality show out there.

Alec would've been great as a guess, and would certainly fit more the blind, but he has worked on broadway, and you can't really work on broadway if you're a homophobe, I'm sure they are a lot of homophobes on the boards... but he would've been blacklisted. Plus, I do remember him speaking out against Prop.8

Now think about it, Fishburne has not really said much, except that he has disowned his daughter, and looking at all the info coming out, you would understand it is more about a father, ashamed of his daughter, who not only has been caught for hooking (and he has been paying her lawyers to deal with the situation) but his little girl who went behind his back and made porno movies because she wanted to get fame the Kardashian way.

Kim K. was filmed in the bedroom with her boyfriend, and agreed to "leak" the film, but Fishburne's daughter is as of right now making 2 pornos a month at least. That is leading her very far from the Kim K. path...

I keep thinking more of the Dick Cheney type. Who has that much superstar power in hollywood, has to be in acting first, not directing only... Could it be Mr. Gran Torino, Clint Eastwood? VERY conservative. Tom Hanks? But that man is goodness personified... Any other guesses?

sistah2 said...

gotta be L. Fishbourne. What other celeb has publicly dissed his female relative for bad behavior? so what if it seems obvious - Ted does that sometimes - this is such a specific BV!

Rita, Montreal said...

More like Jessica Tandy from Driving Miss Daisy?

Rita, Montreal said...

Please eras my last post, was meant for Peter Priss-Ass blind.

Just a said...

Since when is Augusta GA in the Midwest?? Or Brooklyn for that matter? Those are the places where Laurence Fishburne grew up. So scratch that guess.

If you don't think it's TC (which it very well could be)... then, a look at the top 10 A list-ers points decidedly to one mega star from the Midwest and that would be Brad Pitt... I'm not making a guess, just using deductive reasoning based on the clues. Did BP condemn a relative or two in the past year?

Tara said...

Who else in Hollywood within the last year has had a female relative who had a SEXUAL scandal that made tabloid news? That is great that Clooney, Pitt, and Cruise are all mega-stars and what not, but can any of you think of a blood relative of theirs that has been slaughtered by media outlets as slutty? That alone is the key to this blind, not whether so and so who is more famous than Fishburne fits better, but whether anyone else can even fit because of the relative's public scandal.

And how can we know for sure how much Fishburne has made off of the Matrix movies? And that he does not have some sort of royalty contract for DVD or ticket sales, keeping money rolling in on a regular basis? And $7 mil a year for two years, not counting his first year on CSI is nothing to scoff at! All it says is he is a megasuccessful movie star (A lead role in one of the most critically acclaimed and popular trilogies to hit theaters ever alone can bring that status--ahem, ROBSTEN) and that he is very wealthy, not that he is the richest celebrity ever. Wealthy could be him pulling in multi millions each year, not just how much money he commands for each film.

sistah2 said...

This BV does NOT say the star is from the Midwest! Read the 1st paragraph again. Before he introduces this new BV, Ted is simply comparing him to 'midwest evangelical types' that condemn others while having sleezy affairs. Ted is NOT saying the celeb here is from the midwest.
So, it could be LF, and it seems to be.

Rita, Montreal said...

This is getting quite heated. I love the fact that everyone has their own opinion, always based on personal experience and interpretation of Ted C.'s decorative syntax.

Personally, I would believe it more of Tom C. not Fishburne, in my book,and following the different gradings lately of stardom, Fishburne is B-list.

Let us hope that tomorrow's bitch-backs will bring more answers.

On this one Just a, I am with you. Not to worry though, some defend their opinions on this site a bit too strongly, and have in the long run developed some sort of friendship where they defend each other's points strongly, but all in all, everybody is decent, and the sisters make sure that strong opinion does not step into vulgar territory.

Rita, Montreal said...

Wait a minute, anybody remember that Mamas and Papas' daughter who revealed that she had been abused by her father during that reality show with Dr. Drew? And also got a book out detailing all the crap on how her father had raped her at 13, after he had injected her with heroine... What's her name???

I know the ex-mother in law spoke publicly against her... One of the Baldwin brothers is married to the stepsister... Boy, I need me a cup of joe! No memory whatsoever this morning.

Did Alex speak against her? Or any other male with relation to that very extended family had belittled her healing process and called her whore?

Anyone?

sistah2 said...

LOL the Baldwins always pop up as BV possibilities..however Ted says this relative is not famous, so that elims the Baldwins - they are all well known.
also, Mackenzie Phillips is famous, so she would not be the condemned female relative.

Rita, Montreal said...

eh ben,back to my coffee.

Tara said...

This site is designed for celebrity gossip debate, and debate or speculation is not always classified as casual conversation--that is what the E comment threads are for. Some people talk politics or sports. Just as those conversations can get heated, so can these, if you feel strongly about it. That is why opinion is so great, you don't have to share it, and you also don't have to give up on your stance just because another name gets thrown into the ring. I know that comment was directed at me once again, Rita, I apologize for not agreeing with you on every BV. I do however, think you have a large reperatoire of celebrity gossip knowledge, and consider your arguments just like all the others. If you think I am annoying, so be it, to me that means I am doing a good job playing devil's advocate. In this BV, your stance is the devil's advocate, because it is the minority opinion. That is, more people think it is Fishburne as opposed to someone else (with evidence).

Just as you think this cannot be Fishburne, I strongly believe that it is not George Clooney, Brad Pitt, or Tom Cruise. We can get into all the specifics, but number one, if you are a regluar here, you know that all three have been BVs long before this one came out, so it is not even worth considering. If you can give me some solid evidence that your suspect is "better" than mine, I have no problem giving credit where it is due. Even though this cannot be Cruise due to the fact that he has had a BV for years, if you could find tabloid evidence that one of his blood relatives (Suri, his mother or sister) has been posing nude or acting skanky combined with a denial by Ted that Cruise was a BV already prior to this blind coming out, I would give you props--big time.

What we have here is not a clique, it is mutual respect. There have been many times I have not agreed with the sisters, The Spie, or Caz for instance. But that makes the debate all the more interesting, don't you think? You did just say above that you love how everyone has their own take on this one, right?

Caz1310 said...

G'day from Down Under. Woo hoo I get a mention in Tara's comment above...or at least I hope it's me LOL. What I love about this site is that we don't take offence or take things too far if we disagree, as others have noted. I didn't make the connection that this could be LF.. must have been hiding under a rock of late. It is useful to remember that Ted does give us sometimes shifty clues... I like it when fellow bloggers have different ideas. Keep it up 'yall.

Tara said...

Oh don't sell yourself short, Caz! There's only one you here:)

LF has not, that I know of, opened up to the media about his scandal, per se. All that has been reported is that he is very upset, her and her father have not spoken since the story broke, he is mad at her, and he views doing porn as negative. Condemning, by definition, simply means to express strong disapproval. I think based on what has leaked to the media, that counts.

Here is one of many stories:

Rita, Montreal said...

To Tara,

Speaking from my experience on this site, the amount of word flow could be off-putting, and I perceived it to be a tad agressive. For a while, I became again a lurker.

Seing that others came back and were again writing on this site, I told myself what the hell, maybe Tara is more open to other suggestions from some more than others.

However you take it Tara, you have to understand that the way I AM perceiving your defending your opinions a tad agressive, and so may others.

My little note was to encourage others to keep on coming to this site, and give their opinions, even if some seem a bit more into it and express more strongly their point of view, it is alright to take this site as a fun relief, hoping to share their guesses with people from all over.

No political statements, or religious beliefs. I take this site for what it states to be: a fun way at guessing Blind items.

Back to the blind, even tough Fishburne has possibilities, I think we should bring back the possibility, as I said before, someone of the CALIBER of G. Clooney, B. Pitt or T. Cruise. Being a fan of this site, I quite understand that those 3 were already BVs. But again, the translation of Ted`s description of Megasuperstar, VERY wealthy, professionnaly celebrated.
Any other guesses?

Kat said...

Hi all, first time commenter here. I don't really have a good guess, but I don't think this is Laurence Fishburne. If you read the beginning, Ted says Mooney has been "coldly condemning A FEW of his relatives, one in particular for her ARGUABLY skanky behavior." Later on, he again mentions Mooney's "supposedly lurid accusations."

To me, making porn is not "arguably skanky" or "supposedly lurid," it IS skanky and lurid! Also, to the best of my knowledge Laurence is not condemning multiple family members, just his porn-making daughter.

No, I think LF is a red herring. This seems like somebody more like...Bruce Willis, maybe? Rumor is sort-of famous now, but the other two daughters aren't particularly well known. I don't know of anything he's said, but I keep going back to "coldly condemning A FEW of his relatives."

Rita, Montreal said...

Kat - very interesting guess. Bruce W. is still considered a Megasuperstar, he is very rich, and has quite the extended family to pick on and judge... Wonder if he is already a BV. Maybe the Oldies could tell us.

Lately, I only heard that he has quite the demanding diva, whether on talkshows, movie sets or restaurants! Would be quite odd if let's say, he is judging Demi... Very interesting. Some superstars, even if they have been out of the spotlight for a while, they would always command attention, and superstar caliber treatment.

Tara said...

I may rub you the wrong way, but when you are debating, you argue a point. That is what I am doing, and I usually have researched my guesses prior so that they actually have some substance. You can still walk away and shake hands regardless of who comes out as the more believable guess. I don't feel I need to change my wording to sound less offensive to you, as sometimes I am bothered by your tone as well, but I have the sense to ignore it. If you could only keep to the task and do the same, we wouldn't be having this conversation. If you don't attack me or my style in a direct or passive way within your posts, I can respect you as well. What I won't do is change how I argue my point in an environment that is accepting of many different viewpoints, however weak or strong. I never would attack a member personally, berate them, or make them feel stupid. If I am keeping to the topic, there is nothing wrong with how I present an argument.

Moving on......

All three Willis girls are considerably well known, and I don't believe there has been any press openly discussing their sexual habits. I am not sure if Willis has a BV.....anyone?

Brittany said...

I'm only posting this here because its first...

Congrats Sisters on getting your site linked on Ted's BB. I wonder if he ever reads our comments....

sistah2 said...

Brittany where are we linked? I could not find it. thanks!

Brittany said...

When someone asks about 'Browhilda Frown-Free' its link is to this site.

girltrav said...

Not sure if anyone has mentioned this but all three of the AIA's are singers too. Kevin Costner had some cheezy band, JT has always sung and JM is obvious. Does that help?

sistah2 said...

thanks B. I will post this on the other thread, but I wonder if Ted posted this item on Broomhilda on the day that Penelope C (top guess for that one) annouced her pregnancy for any reason other than to drop a hint our way?

Tara said...

girltrav--that is an interesting catch:) I don't like holding too much stock in his AIAs, just because I think he loves to torture us, and sometimes they are clues but sometimes I think they just drive us mad. But that is quite interesting that all three sing on the side.......

C said...

Sorry if this is obvious, but no one has made the connection outright ... Bruce W. has some band, doesn't he?

And, while I would consider Rumor semi-well-known, I definitely don't think the other two daughters would be described as famous. This is an interesting guess, and since I don't like the LF guess, I'm intrigued ...

C said...

Sorry for the additional post, but it just occurred to me that I have seen pictures of the Willis girls dressed pretty slutty ... the little one got a bunch of flack for her ass hanging out of some shorts several months ago. Seems pretty petty to qualify for this BV, but you never know I guess?

mike said...

going against the obvious with this one.
don't think it's the fishburnes.

all the AIA point to someone with musical/singing abilities.


so perhaps an actor with a daughter, who either sings in a band or had a famous role for singing?

i.e.

kevin costner - band
JT - grease, hairspray
john mayer - singer with tv shows in development/comedy cameos

Rita, Montreal said...

Chill Tara, the comment was meant for others to feel comfortable and not to feel threatened. Keep on writing or defending however you choose, but practice what you preach: have the sense to ignore it, and let new comers relate.

Moving on to the debate at hand.

Mike and Girltrav: excellent catch, Bruce W. was also a singer and harmonica player, the blind might not relate to his daughters, but maybe to someone in his new bride's family, or directly to Demi Moore or Ashton.

Remember the uncomfortable photo Demi twittered of herself a week ago? Or the off-key dirty dancing at the Snoop Dog concert?

Fishburne might have connections or similarities with Costner or Travolta... But with John Mayer?

C said...

Once again, the blind makes it clear the relative is blood-related to whoever the blind is about. Thus, his new bride's family and Demi/Ashton would not work ... I'd say if it was Bruce, seems clear it would have to be about his daughter/s ...

Rita, Montreal said...

I never thought that a relative, had to always be a BLOOD relative.

Like a stepfather for example, is still a relative... No? Bleach-blond moment for me? or language barrier?

Rita, Montreal said...

C: wait, you are right, forgot about the last part of the blind. It does specify that it is BLOOD-RELATED. Sorry.

Wow, just don't see Bruce W. criticizing his daughters though, Demi will chew him up, and spit him out whole (is that how the saying goes?)

Tara said...

That still leaves us without evidence that he has spoken out against or the press has released any sort of story involving the two younger daughters that paints them in a negative and slutty light. So, if this were Willis, how would you explain that there are no such stories to back it up? That is the key to this, the famous relative shunned/spoke out against/was unhappy with the female blood relative who is not famous, and media outlets are portraying her as whoreish.

Tara said...

Since we have a few doubters, I thought I would seek out a backup for Mooney. Warren Beatty has a young daughter who is set to undergo a sex-change operation. Totally different type of sexual "scandal", but notable. In dissecting the BV, he does say "supposedly lurid", which causes a problem for some, since porn is not supposedly lurid, it just is. A sex change operation would be more debatable as far as scandal or condemnability is concerned. Just thought I would toss it in, to expand the horizons for pro-Fishburne-ers (myself included).

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1292924/Will-Warren-Beatty-accept-girl-boy.html

Tara said...

Last post in a row, swear. Here is an article with a pro-Beatty stance with this story:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/the-stir/warren-beatty-is-devastat_b_617693.html

sistah2 said...

Beatty is a good guess, but one having a sex change op wouldnt be called 'skanky' or 'lurid' by Ted. I think he's referring to someone who's daily 'activities' (his words) are scandalous. IMO not Beatty's daughter.

Tara said...

Thx for your input Sistah. He is the only other super successful celeb that I can find right now who has a relative with some sort of "sexual" scandal in the news. I agree that he would not likely disrespect like that, being a member of the LGBT community, unless he was being dramatic or sarcastic. But it was another option with some tabloid evidence.

C said...

Ah, this one is so tough! I want to believe it might be Beatty, esp. after reading those articles you linked to, Tara. But it seems weird that, if it was them, Ted would repeatedly make clear that the relative is female ... he described her as a "woman" over and over. Just seems strange to me ... Since Ted is very accepting and even states that he doesn't have a problem w/ either sides behavior, I would think he would be more politically correct about how he labeled the daughter (son?) if it was the Beattys. Maybe I'm just being too picky, though. I just really want it to be someone other than LF, because I don't believe Ted would give us one so incredibly easy.

Tara said...

I thought about that too, C. He would likely refer to Kathlyn as "him", though it would give us more to work with, so he may not have been willing. I asked Ted today if MVD's tabloid story would be familiar to those who follow entertainment news (ie anyone who can google can find it). If so, then that significantly narrows our suspect list.

I agree that LF for MVD is almost too perfect, but I was thinking Ted was pissed at him for being a hypocrite, so he didn't care so much if readers could determine who it was from his clues.

Fun fact of the day: In researching Beatty, I discovered he and Shirley MacLaine were brother and sister! Who knew?!!

Rita, Montreal said...

Other possible megasuperstars: Sean Penn, Jack Nicholson (I think already mentioned), Robert DeNiro...

But Kevin Spacey would so fit this blind, those pictures of him on different gay sites pinching very young men's asses would put him comfortably in the lead - Please note, am not talking specifically about his homosexuality, but the fact that for most of his career he has hidden it, had beards, and only lately had dumped the pretense of a hetero relationship. He is known though to be a dirty old man in the community pursuing younger men. He does have sisters.

And let us not forget the crazy Nick Cage, although, very rich does not apply to him lately. And he does have problems with his wife-unit; wonder if he has any beef with the Coppola family... Thoughts? Anyone heard anything lately?

The Spie said...

Tara: You really didn't know about Beatty and Shirley? Wow. Next you'll be telling us that you're shocked and surprised that Olivia De Havilland and Joan Fontaine were sisters.

Tara said...

I guess I was hiding under a rock! Not really my generation, I guess, though I respect the talent and work of both.

mike said...

just throwing this name out there:

morgan freeman.


had that 'scandal' where he apparently married a family member

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/07/10/edena-hines-morgan-freema_n_229070.html


still not convinced this is fishburne, the AIA's do not help the fishburne argument. only timing.

it also does not exactly fit, but morgan freeman is know for his voice.

pomme said...

Fishburne and his porn actress/hooker daughter
Sometimes Ted C likes the obviousness(remember Sam "Doug Dry Me" Worthington:every one thought he was Dicaprio or Sam W)

Tara said...

Mike, I was thinking about Freeman and that whole debacle when I saw his divorce was finalized. And people do get the two confused (LF) but that scandal does not pertain to Freeman speaking out against a blood relative, just him being with someone he is related to. Is there something he said against her or other family members that you know of?

mike said...

tara - i agree. don't know any specifics regarding morgan freeman, just throwing another option out there.

here's specifically why i do not think this blind is about LF.

1.

"...has recently been in the news for coldly condemning a few of his relatives, one in particular for her arguably skanky behavior."

ted states that this person not only insulted one family member, rather a few relatives, specifically targeting one. as of now, it seems LF has only gone after his daughter.

2.

"If the gullible readers gobbling up these supposedly lurid accusations (regarding the woman's activities)"

doing porn is definitely not "supposedly lurid", it straight up is when it is a porn.
how could LF make accusations regarding his daughter, when a sex tape actually exists as proof?

Tara said...

I totally understand your argument. I just can't think of anyone else with proof staring us in the face as of now:(

Rita, Montreal said...

I am on BBs for the 2nd time today, and surprise, Ted finally answered my question about LF, he posted my email letter instead of my name, but always glad to get some answers!
Dear Ted:
What do you think of the situation between Laurence Fishburne and his daughter? He seems to want to help her, even though embarrassed by her actions, but is coming up cold hearted. After watching a documentary on porn valley, I shudder at the thought of any of my siblings ending up working there. What are your thoughts on this situation?
—C

Dear Tough One:
Of course, he's embarrassed. And what do we do when we're embarrassed? Usually say the wrong thing.

Does this confirm? Or negate? sheesh, still not clear.

sistah2 said...

I think this is Ted confirming LF as this BV.

Rita, Montreal said...

I think so too. Tara was right.

Either that, or Ted is misleading us.

But it is best to be fair, and officially name Laurence Fishburne as Mooney Van Dangle. We always base our guesses on his answers. And to me, his last answer disproves all other guesses. What do you think sister?

Tara said...

I appreciate that statement Rita, but to be fair MM was first to post Fishburne. Good call, MM!

Rita, Montreal said...

True Tara, cheers to MM. Wonder if something is pushing Ted's buttons lately, I feel like he is revealing a lot more than usual...

I would say NOT a reveal.. but a hint yes.

Caz1310 said...

Of late there doesn't seem to be many comments on Ted's BV's of late on the E site...are others experiencing this as well? Is Ted (or E) highly editing/deleting comments that don't fit the angle they're after or is there another plausible reason I'm not guessing? There is more info actually in the Bitch Backs! I don't waste my time on the message boards so can't comment on those. There's certainly been a shift in attitude of late - as has been commented on here in various threads.

The Spie said...

Caz: Too many factors to take into consideration to give one good answer. It could be something as simple as spam on the message board, or things that can be perceived as spam (with an overzealous E! employee with his or her finger on the Delete button). There could be something to the rumors of stuff behind the scenes that's leading to Ted's imminent departure from E!. Or it could be as simple as the fact that it's September and the younger crowd is busy at school, and/or more workplaces are firewalling E! Online. Like I said, it could be lots of reasons, ranging from the innocuous to the conspiratorial.

Brittany said...

The Spie: Where are other rumors that Ted is getting fired besides a blind by GB? You are seriously the only person I hear talk about rumorS of Ted's future at E! being in Jeopardy. Is there a link or something? Or are you just in the know?

sistah2 said...

who/what is GB?

Can you settle a bet between me and my friends, please? Would Mooney Van Dangle's familial scandal be something entertainment news followers would be familiar with or is this something that has not been picked up by many mainstream gossip outlets?
—Practice What You Preach

Dear Dangling the Goods:
Everyone whose behavior Mooney's been bitchin' about is pretty common knowledge. It's just Van Dangle's naughty, naughty biz that's kept on the DL. But for how long?"

C said...

Does Ted's post today on Annette Benning do anything for the Warren Beatty guess? Still don't think it's LF, I just can't!

The Spie said...

Brittany: The GB blind, plus a few things here and there that have come up. Nothing substantiated, but where there's smoke, there's often fire. Either that, or Michael K just lit up again.

Tara said...

C--that one got me too! What's up with that? Either he is deflecting attention from LF as Mooney or Beatty could still be a contender. I never thought the guess would even go anywhere, but there Ted goes. Now we should see if we can find any evidence to support Beatty as MVD, like his treatment towards other children and relatives besides Kathlyn (transgender). Then there will be little question of MVD's identity.

Tara said...

Nothing pro-Beatty to report, C:( I do like him still as the sleeper no one saw coming though! So far, all I can find is more to support Fishburne as Mooney. He has a son, Langston, who is a professional dancer, and is supposedly gay. If previously he has spoken out against/word has gotten out that he does not approve of his son's lifestyle or career choices, then perhaps that is what initially fueled Ted's need to expose Mooney--the icing on the cake was Montana's venture. Being a homophobe and then a hypocritical closet gay/bi would definitely send Ted over the edge, making this blind more transparent for us. Anyone know if they have a relationship to speak of?

In Ted's "What's bugging the Beattys" posted on Sept. 20th, he fully encourages Annette Bening to keep on trucking no matter what personal problems her family is going through.

The wording insinuates that she is heading for divorce, and if she is nominated for an Oscar, she will have to go through certain uncomfortable interviews that would have to cover same sex families, and I quote "had she dealt with that".

Although a sex-change does not fit in skanky behavior, wonder if the Beatty's daughter/son has been rebelling with too much partying, sex and drugs. If that is so, this would totally fit.

For Warren Beatty was the biggest skank Hollywood had ever seen. Threesomes and orgies were pretty regular, so were hard drugs. This was more prominently reported in European mags when he was dating Isabelle Adjani.

Tara said...

I agree that what may not be common knowledge, IE the girl's sex or drug related activity, could be what Ted is reffering to as skanky, but something C said did stick with me. I don't know if even mockingly Ted could allow himself to refer to Kathlyn as a "she" knowing that she is living her life in college as a man named Stephen and will soon undergo a sex change op. I looked into the idea that this could refer to either of his other daughters.....but they are 13 and 10. I really like the idea of this being Beatty, but it needs way more meat to sit well with me currently. Fishburne is really blatant, but right now I am thinking Ted was calling out his hypocrisy, so he didn't care. What his article with the Beattys did do for me was make me wonder if not MVD, then who could Beatty be?

Rita, Montreal said...

Has Ted ever confirmed that Beatty has been a blind?

The only difference for me between LF and WB, is that WB is more of a megasuperstar and very rich.

If Ted is right, something is bound to get out. He always puts out a maybe story, than a few days later the story is confirmed. Whether pregnancy rumours or splits, Dude has a knack for getting information out without looking cruel.

Annette is promoting in Europe, something is bound to leak. BTW, have not heard or read a peep out LF lately. Last news was the fact that he is blaming his ex-wife. Wait, that kind of confirms him again!

C said...

Must stop obsessing over this ... I'm getting stressed out! I've decided Ted's favorite hobby is now to f*ck with the BVE girls and their regulars. My official party line remains with the Warren Beatty guess. And kudos to you for all the WB info, Tara ... we should all be private investigators together or something. lol ;)

C said...

OK, it's been minutes since my last post, obviously I'm not going to stop obsessing ... the below Chicago Sun-Times article and a few others renew my suspicion that MVD is Beatty. Apparently he's pissed that Annette paid for the daughter's surgery? I'm totally emailing Ted for a clue.

Tara said...

C I totally agree, he is sitting back, evil laughing as he pulls our opinions one way then the other! I can't choose. I like them both. Drats! Beatty is pretty good at keeping himself out of the tabs, unlike LF, despite his manwhore past. We need clues. We can't use academy recognition, because both have won oscars. Maybe we could get confirmation or denial of Beatty as a BV for now, because I don't think he will answer if we ask that for LF at this time, he is the obvious choice for MVD, and it is too new.

Rita, Montreal said...

Tara - is that you in the BBs this morning (right after my JenAniston suggestion) for Ian Somerhalder? too bad he got nixed for Nelly (or hasn't he yet) for this would fit perfectly the "no sexy biz with his co-stars".

hordac said...

Yes Tara, was wondering if you were the one to win the swag for the True Blood tweet! I'm totally jels (Tedspeak)!

Tara said...

Thanks! That was me, guys! I am totally excited, but they want me to tweet them my address--I tried to DM them on Twitter but I can't cuz they dont follow me. I am stoked about the $300 Hallmark gift card--Christmas presents, or cards for the next couple years.

Ian was elim'd for Nelly. Regardless of his BV, he can do no wrong in my book:)

Brittany said...

Tara: Don't worry Ian is either Drew Smolder-n-such or Kelly Gluten-shoes. Nothing too bad, just the BV about costars getting high with their director.

Tara said...

I cannot see him as anything other than Smoulder; that is his look in all pics.

Caz1310 said...

congrats Tara - saw it too!!! Ted made a reference to Denis Quaid having family probs in BB today but I couldn't find any info - does anyone know anything about it?

Brittany said...

Caz: Ted was referring to Randy Quaid's (Dennis' bother) recent troubles with the law. This blind involves a female relative so I don't think it could be him.
