Bonus Blind: Deceitful Little Diva!

New from Ted today...

ELIZABETH BANKS 24X36 COLOUR POSTER PRINTBonus Blind: Deceitful Little Diva!

Maribeth Bush (no relation to that other horrible famous clan) has made quite the name for herself playing the earnest, quasi-pretty girl next door. She's been in a couple of big-studio jobs that have helped make her a household name, but the majority of Bush's income—and kudos—comes from the more boutique kinda flicks. I mean, it's not like this babe gets paid millions or anything.
But man, is she ever acting like she's worth that amount of money!
So much so, that Maribeth's current little-studio-that-could, Pinnacle Pictures, has come to a conclusion:
They want to can the bitch!
"Everybody thinks it's the other stars here who are difficult," snipped a top Pinnacle source, "but oh how they're wrong. It's Maribeth and Maribeth alone. If people only knew!"
Pinnacle, which hasn't exactly shied away from using whatever leverage it has to keep its performers in line, is currently scrutinizing Bush's deal, looking for resources it has to shake some sense into the spoiled babe's big head.
"She thinks she's this huge star," bitched the Pinnacle pooper. "She thinks she's Jennifer Aniston She keeps asking for all this money!"
We're told Maribeth's on-the-set manners also match her unrealistic moolah demands, and that the slightly curvy woman is "impossible" to deal with.
Yikes. Maybe M-stuff should remember they are about two billion hungry, more humble and out-of-work actors who would die to change places with her ungrateful self, who, for the record, really should have her teeth fixed.
It Ain't: Jennifer Aniston, Anna Farris, Amanda Seyfried

Update 12/8/10 - Ted has eliminated Jennifer Aniston, Anna Farris, Amanda Seyfried, Anna Paquin, Anna Kendrick, the cast of Twilight, Elisabeth Moss, Evan Rachel Wood, Katie Holmes. Sharon Stone, Abbie Cornish, Mary Louise Parker, Toni Collette, Tyra Banks, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jane Krakowski, Amy Adams, Tea Leoni, January Jones, Jennifer Love Hewitt.

Top suspect: Elizabeth Banks

sienna miller or amber heard?

mo pie said...

Kristin Stewart? Pinnacle = Summit?

I don't know about her teeth, though.

blurry vice said...

No... Kristen Stewart is already a BV. She can't have a nickname. Amber Heard is not a household name. Sienna Miller, have to check the list but I think she is already a BV too. Also she is not really curvy.

I was thinking America Ferrara.

blurry vice said...

Hmph... America Ferrera not filming any movie right now acording to imdb. Plus her teeth look OK when she's not playing Betty.

blurry vice said...

Anna Paquin has that big space between her teeth. However, Ted would never trash talk her in any way, I don't think. He seems to worship the true blood cast.

So, criteria:

Messed up teeth
slightly curvy body
household name
has done a lot of smaller films

Leanne said...

Could it be Zooey Deschanel?

mo pie said...

Just checked the comments at Ted's, and the leading guess seems to be Anna Kendrick (I know her teeth are blindingly white and straight, but apparently she has an overbite?)

That does fit with Pinnacle = Summit, though. I'm sticking with that!

Rita, Montreal said...

Mo pie - you are absolutely right! It hit him while reading the blind Vice, following Friday's Truth, Lies & Ted, where Kendrick`s frame was blurred during one of her promotional tours, and Ted was calling her out on her Diva ways.

And Pinnacle would fit Summit, for they have been reputed to control and fire at will their actors in order to keep control (i.e. Rachel Lefebvre anyone?)

Watch Friday`s clip and let me know what you think!

Vero said...

Dakota Fanning has a seriously f'ed grill but I would hardly consider her "curvy," not even slightly so.

hordac said...

Agree on Anna Kendrick. His description of Pinnacle is Summit most definitely. Maybe this is her way of trying to get out of the Twilight franchise, so she can do other movies. She probably feels she's in hot demand after her success in Up in the Air. So she's asking for outrageous amounts to keep her on figuring what the hell, she'll continue on if they make it worth her while. But I see nothing really wrong with her teeth??
Also the TLT blurred image could have pointed to this blind.

cassandra said...

heres a list of movies produced/distributed by summit entertainment: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_films_released_by_Summit_Entertainment

also sienna miller hasnt been a blind yet, idk if i think she fits this blind that well though, but either way its about time he wrote her one!!

childeroland said...

Anna Kendrick. Pinnacle clearly equals Summit, and most of her income is probably from arty fair like 'Up in the Air' -- that can't be true of Stewart. Most of Miller's money probably came from G.I. Joe, and she doesn't really get a lot of kudos for her acting. Neither does Amber Heard, who's far too sexy to maintain a girl next door image.

hordac said...

You can bet a BV on Sienna Miller would have to do with sex, not diva-ness. Though she doesn't hide any of that, and this is why she probably has never been a blind. There is a picture of her beside "skank" in the dictionary.

mike said...

as others have noted,
i agree on the anna kendrick guess.

description clues:

"the slightly curvy woman"

"really should have her teeth fixed"

" has made quite the name for herself playing the earnest, quasi-pretty girl next door"

"She's been in a couple of big-studio jobs that have helped make her a household name, but the majority of Bush's income—comes from the more boutique kinda flicks"

"But man, is she ever acting like she's worth that amount of money!"

"So much so, that Maribeth's current little-studio-that-could, Pinnacle Pictures, has come to a conclusion:
They want to can the bitch!"

pinnacle pictures - summit synonym

Simplified clues

huge eg0
famous for playing earnest girl next door roles.
most income comes from small "boutique" films.
quasi-pretty
slightly curvy
gnarly teeth - either has bad teeth in real life or maybe fangs from a vampire franchise.


anna kendricks films -
camp - independent film - high school age
rocket science - independent "boutique" film - another girl next door role

big anna kendricks films -
twilight series, up in the air, scott pilgrim

Kate16 said...

My first thought was Nikki Reed (Summit and curvy - no idea about her teeth), but when I came on here, Anna is a much better guess.

Tara said...

AK's teeth bugged me in Up in the Air. I agree with her as the top suspect. Being nominated for an Oscar might do that to some newer celebs. How quickly they forget where they came from!

Caz1310 said...

Agree with those who have noted the Pinnacle- Summit connection. Didn't think of Anna K - good call 'yall! Was originally thinking of Ashley.

Stephanie said...

Anna Kendrick. Great guess.

Stephanie said...

Caz, I was totally thinking of Miss Ashley Greene too!!!

Sara said...

Kirsten Dunst is the only female celeb I know with terrible teeth and she's been in indie flicks. Plus, Maribeth = Mary Jane from Spiderman, the pretty girl next door? She's also quasi-pretty... but I don't know if I'd call her curvy.

Anna's teeth look fine, but the teeth comment could be in relation to vampire fangs. Aside from the dental comment Anna fits too.

Elizabeth said...

I'm just going to throw this out there: Busy Phillips?

girltrav said...

Not sure if anyone mentioned this about Anna Kendrick, but her diva attitude is probably also due to her Oscar Nomination. Remember last year for Up in the Air?

Jessica said...

Totally Anna Kendrick. Pinnacle = Summit, all the AIA's have a name that starts with A, and I could totally see thsi girl getting big for her britches because of her recent acclaim.

duffgrl said...

My first thought was Maggie Gyllenhall...but after reading comments... it probably is someone from Twilight, Anna Kendrick or Ashley Greene.

Caz1310 said...

I've re-read Julie Bone Jumper - considering that it's pretty much consensus that Ashley is JBJ (I just realised the Bone-Jumper/Jackson Rathbone connection LOL) then this one can only be Anna...for all the reasons other bloggers have noted. Her teeth really annoy me too.

Tara said...

How did I not get that sooner, either Caz? Ha!

Brittany said...

Just to narrow it down a bit: Pinnacle is obviously Summit Entertainment and the BV sounds like the film in question is currently filming. (How can someone be fired from a movie if its already done? Hints why its not Amber Heard) These are Summits films that are filming and have female cast members that fit some of this BV:

The Darkest Hour
The Cold Light of Day
The Impossible

Brittany said...

And to throw my guess out there, its Olivia Thirlby. She was in Juno.

Vero said...

Dear Ted:
Does Anna Kendrick have her own Blind Vice?
—Meg

Dear Kendrick vs. Vice Archive:
I would say no.


Now what?

hordac said...

Whoa we have to start over! Pinnacle has GOT to be Summit though.

Rita, Montreal said...

Hordac - I know! If it isn`t Amanda Seyfried either, than who!!!

Another possibility would be Kristen Bell, but did Ted previously confirm that she is a blind vice? He only confirmed that her fiancé Dax Sheppard is.

And also she is a Top suspect for another blind...

Brittany said...

Amanda Seyfried is an AIA. Also when did Ted stop using "And it ain't" and just "It ain't"? Kinda defeats the acronym.

Nicole said...

Does it matter that the BB question asks if she has her own blind vice as opposed to blind item? Or are they interchangeable?

blurry vice said...

Not Anna Kendrick. She does not have a BV Ted says.

Tara said...

Square one again:( But this does help the case for Amanda Seyfried as Polly Luscious Locks, since they are kind of the same type of behavior.

tory said...

Amy Adams? Is she associated with Summit at all?

cassandra said...

from that wikipedia list: naomi watts, kate hudson, ginnifer goodwin and amber heard are all about to be in upcoming summit entertainment films. dakota fanning has actually been in a bunch of films for them which i didnt realize, maybe this is her?? she was in the twilights, the runaways, push

Brittany said...

Cassandra: What movie is Amber Heard about to star in for Summit? I looked at IMDB and wikipedia and the only thing I can find is a movie she's already finished.

I didn't think of the possibility of Dakota. She doesn't fit some of the clues but there are quite a few that she does.

cassandra said...

amber heard is filming drive angry right now with nic cage

cassandra said...

wait i just think i figured this out...so i noticed that in the blind the word impossible is like separated and in quotes and one of the movies summit is producing from that wiki list is called The Impossible with naomi watts. and she is also in that movie in november, Fair Game which was also produced or whatever by summit...
http://www.movieweb.com/news/NEzEFEVV52EhDB

and naomi watts teeth are a little off i guess...

cassandra said...

fair game is coming out this november...thats what i meant to write

Rita, Montreal said...

Great catch Cassandra!! Naomi Watts is Blonde, and had done a lot of small films, very few blockbusters (King Kong)

Would love to fin a link between the AIAs!

Brittany said...

Cassandra: Yeah that's the movie I was talking about. Drive Angry (stupid title) is the only movie I've heard of from Amber. But that's done and has premiered at some festivals right? A little too late to be fired from. I was only curious about Amber because on Ted's board everyone keeps saying this is her and I couldn't think of ways to make her fit.

I like the Naomi Watts guess. The BV does say a household name, and besides Dakota I haven't heard any guesses that fit that yet. I don't know if anyone read my comment above but I figured out the 3 Summit movies that are filming now or about to that have ladies to fit the BV, and The Impossible was one that I found.

HzyStar293 said...

I think it is Ginnifer Godwin, actually. She plays the "girl next door" in Big Love, and she has been in both indie movies as well as bigger pics.

She was in "He's Just Not that Into You" w/Jennifer Anniston, and is in "Big Love" with Amanda Seyfried. Not sure what the Anna Faris connection is.

hordac said...

The teeth thing-Ginnifer Goodwin does have little teeny teeth if I remember correctly. I think Dakota's are not too perfect either. Don't know as I can't get the thought out of my mind that he was referencing vampires with that comment.

Rita, Montreal said...

Quite oddly, because of Ted's passed admiration for all things Dakota Fanning, and mostly very admiring of her work, I don't think he would put her in such a blind, more likely he thinks she is worth lots of money.

After the Anna Kendrick refute, this blind has me stumped. Hope we get more clues soon!

Tara said...

I need to clarify my above post, Amanda Seyfried is the current front runner for Polly Luscious Locks, who is being bitchy and demanding more money despite being a Hollywood newbie, which is what MB is doing, and why Ted would put AS as an AIA, I think.

Naomi Watts is older, pretty thin, and does have some street cred in H-wood with her Oscar nom PLUS a ton of critical recognition. She never hit the status of her BFF, per se, but I don't know if it would be so shocking for her to be acting like an entitled beyotch. I think someone who is a little green, maybe with little critical recognition would fit better. Anna was suitable because she was so new to Hollywood and Up in the Air just kinda fell in her lap. Dakota has braces currently, so that would be a redundant statement by Ted in reference to her teeth. Ginnifer is a good guess, but I don't know if she is a household name, despite Big Love and her supporting film roles.

For a minute I was thinking he may be bringing Lea Michele back to haunt us (espec after the new blurb on her today or yesterday), but she is not known for her roles in films, so that possibility quickly passed.

The Spie said...

Everyone's fixated on Pinnacle being Summit. But there's a much older name in play that everyone's forgotten about, one that would have more resonance for Ted: Paramount. Maybe we should look for candidates who have a movie that's going to be released through Paramount or one of Viacom's subsidiaries.

Jamee said...

I really thought this was Anna Kendrick ftw until Ted said she didn't have a BV. Boo. Back to the drawing board. I'm pretty certain this is obviously Summit because he said "Pinnacle hasn't exactly shied away from using whatever leverage it has to keep its performers in line." Ted says that, pretty much verbatim, about how Summit tries to control the Twilight kids/Rob/Kristen. As far as Naomi Watts, I'd consider her a pretty big movie star. She doesn't get as much press as Jen A., but I'd consider her pretty big. And the "I mean, it's not like this babe gets paid millions or anything. But man, is she ever acting like she's worth that amount of money!" doesn't really fit. I'd assume Naomi makes a couple million for the big films she's done. She's in that new Woody Allen, was in The International, King Kong, The Ring. It seems like it's someone with a less established career but who's gotten praise for a thing or two and it has gotten to her head...

cassandra said...

anna faris played naomi watts character from the ring in scary movie? only connection i could make between the AIAs and NW

AshleyG said...

I also was sure this was referring to Summit until Spie brought up Paramount, I dont think we should completely rule that out yet. The bad part about that is it just creates so many other possible suspects! Also I wanted to say I know a lot of people are trying hard to link the AIAs, but we have to remember sometimes Ted just throws out names with no links. I try not to put too much stock in the AIAs, but that can be bad, because I know sometimes I overlook possibilities. Good guessing so far everyone, hopefully we can get some more clues soon!

Nicole said...

Is Paramount a "little-studio-that-could"?

It sounds more like Summit to me.

Michelle said...

Spie: I was just coming over here to mention Paramount too!

But you're right, Nicole "little-studio-that-could" does call that into question. I do think it's worth it to look outside of Summit though.

The Spie said...

Considering how much Viacom downsized them a couple of years ago, Paramount can now qualify as a "little studio". Plus, they've got at least one low-budget boutique studio under the Paramount banner. Not necessarily the best answer, but justifiable.

The lesson here: do not assume that "Pinnacle" is Summit. Look elsewhere.

Caz1310 said...

Dagnabbit hot-diggety. Thought we had Anna K right on the money. Apart from Paramount what other studio's have a mountain/hill in either their name or logo? This one has me beat.

HzyStar293 said...

Actually, now that I think about it, I'm convinced it is Maggie Gylenhall. Not sure what movies she has coming up, but she definitely has the bitchy thing going on, as well as the funky teeth.

AshleyG said...

This isnt a very educated guess, but is there any way Amanda Bynes could fit this? She came out of "retirement" recently and I think she could fit the somewhat curvy (by HWood standards, not real life) and girl-next-door parts, but I dont know if she has anything to do with Summit or Paramount, or about her teeth...oh, and id say shes a household name, too. Sorry if this is a bad guess, just trying!

Clancy said...

Ellen Page springs to mind although her teeth are pretty fine. Saw one Google page that said they were stained and needed whitening but they looked okay to me. Just throwing it out there.

Clancy said...

By the way she looks like a right little upstart to me.

Rita, Montreal said...

Has anyone guessed Amber Heard. From Texas? Ted was bitching about her Diva attitude during Fashion week, when in presence of la Lopez and the other true divas, who were not acting out:

http://ca.eonline.com/uberblog/the_awful_truth/b200133_can_you_guess_fashion_week_diva.html

She is blond, First name starts with A...

Anyone made that guess or any connections already to Summit?

Leanne said...

I'm still sticking with Zooey Deschanel. She's been in a bunch of indie films and is always the quirky girl next door type.

Tara said...

Amber Heard was guessed by Cassandra at the top. It was said that she is a bit too sexy to portray the girl next door image, and Drive Angry is in post-prod, so there would be no firing possible. I am not very familiar with her, but she does seem bitchy, according to her hissy fit she had at the fashion show.

Leanne, does Zooey have messed up teeth?

Brittany said...

I don't think this can be Paramount. They may have downsized a bit in the last few years, but no way are they the little studio that could. Some of the upcoming flicks are Transformers 3, Thor, MI:4, Captain America, etc. and those movies are just for next year. The list of movies coming out in 2012 so far are all guaranteed to be blockbusters too (Avengers, WWZ, Star Trek 2.) This is most likely Summit Entertainment, and Ted made it seem obvious because he knows most people are going to assume its a Twilight BV when it isn't. That way he can throw people off.

Rita, Montreal said...

Cassandra - am a bit late on the Amber Heard wagon, but any other insights you can add to this guess? don't know the girl much, hence the bell when I read about her attitude in fashion week. And Ted does still tend to link-up his vices to blolums posted within the same time-frame.

Any other links to Amber? I know she looks hot in her pictures, but I honestly don't know much about her movie roles, an what her teeth look like!

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
Is Anna Paquin Maribeth Bush? I honestly hope she's not, but she does seem cold in interviews and I don't see her spending time with other castmembers except her husband. If she's not M.B., has she ever been a Vice? If she is or isn't it won't really matter to me, because I love her rawness! Don't you?
—d

Dear Show Me the Money:
You have banked on the wrong gal, babe. But let me ask: If you don't care if A.P. is a Vice, then why're you asking? But just fyi, she's not Miss Bush. Anna is far chiller on set and genuinely seems to get along with the rest of the cast and crew."

Sara said...

I'm gonna throw my guess out there again: Kristen Dunst. She has the worst teeth in Hollywood, was the girl-next-door in Spiderman (huge blockbuster) and Maribeth = MaryJane, her character from Spiderman? Also fits the quasi-pretty requirement.

Tara said...

Kirsten is not a bad guess, Sara--I hate her teeth; however she was confirmed as a BV by Ted as of 9/09, so this new one can't be her.

crila16 said...

I'm going with Anna Kendrick. I saw another exposed BV about her attitude lately and how she thinks she's biggest star out there. She makes little money and has a huge Diva attitude. They say she is difficult to work with and that other A list celebs are shocked by her attitude.

Tara said...

Crila I liked her for this originally too, but Ted just said she does not have a BV name yesterday I think.

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
Is Anna Kendrick our "Deceitful Little Diva"?
–Sam

Dear Deceived:
Sorry babe, that's a no. Think older."

Kate16 said...

Well that nixes Amber Heard too since she's younger than Anna.
What about Vera Farmiga?

remyfire said...

A long shot, but what about Patricia Arquette? Whenever anyone says messed up teeth I think of her. Famous indie films (true romance), She is curvy as well, whereas Dunst etc are skinny. Also the family reference (the arquettes) and there is a mention of Jennfier Aniston - Courtney Cox is her sister in law. Ted says 'woman' not girl which indicates someone older. But I dont get where the pinical/summit reference would fit her....

Clancy said...

Alicia Silverstone? Sort of funny mouth at least.

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
Please tell me Maribeth Bush isn't another Twilight castmember. Pinnacle Pictures sounds an awful lot like Summit Films, and we all know how they keep a tight leash on the Twi kids.
—Lisa Marie

Dear Seeking Bush:
Just for you Lis—Maribeth Bush is not another Twilight castmember."

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
Any chance that our own Peggy Olsen, Elisabeth Moss, is Maribeth Bush? She's filming On the Road with at least one of your B.V.s who might be seen as more likely to stir things up. If E.M. is not the diva, has the real culprit done TV as well as films?
—Tortietude

Dear Mad Woman:
Sorry hon, E.M. is not Maribeth! That girl has had enough drama in her own life lately (thanks a lot, Scientology). She isn't creating any professionally."

Carrie said...

Hey girls, Long time reader first time guess. How about Toni Colette, Ted had made comments before about how she wasn't the nicest in person. She is doing that show with showtime, and did a lot of indy flicks?

LMS130 said...

Ted said today that the last name was a big hint. We already know it's not Sophia Bush because he said last week she's never been a BV. I'm thinking it might be Elizabeth Banks? She is currently signed on for Summit's "Man on a Ledge" and she played Laura Bush in the movie "W". Thoughts?

talia said...

i just saw a picture of rebecca hall (the town)... her teeth are crooked...

raccoonelephant said...

bush maybe means someone from australia?

Carrie said...

Sorry to say it again but Toni Colette is an Australian, she was in Muriel's Wedding.

Rita, Montreal said...

Carrie - could make sense, although she sounds too old for this vice, but here it goes anyways: for the AIAs links, her husband is musician David Galafassi and band member of her band Finish (or something like that... yeah, she fronts and they have an album out).

Bad teeth.
Australian.
Uncool to media peeps
The big studio jobs are mostly from movies with Hugh Grant.

But... She is so popular right now with United States of Tara, that I really don`t think that the studio wants to get rid of her... unless it`s about a new movie she is supposed to sign up for.

Mommie Dearest said...

This is from a BB from this past June:

Dear Ted:
Since you work in the Hollywood scene and get to meet famous people everyday, I was wondering if you have ever adored, loved or idolized someone but then, when you met them in person, changed your mind?
—Robsten 4 Eva

Dear Reality Check:
Idolize? Nah. But there have definitely been people whom I thought a lot less of after having bumped into them (Toni Collette, Jeremy Piven). There have also been people I liked a lot more after we've met (Tom Cruise, Sean Penn). You win some, you lose some, babe.

Mommie Dearest said...

Rita, Montreal said...

Mommie Dearest - I do remember that one as well! would make sense why Ted will BV her the first chance he gets. Not necessarily petty revenge, but hey, when you have the means to get back at a meannie, use it!

Jessica said...

Ted said yesterday there's a big hint in her last name...Bush???

LMS130 said...

I like the Toni Colette guess a lot now that we know Ted has a beef with her. Is she mostly an indie actress? She definitely has messed up teeth.

I still Elizabeth Banks is a possibility that we should explore. Bush is a nod to her role as Laura Bush in W. She's had small roles in big studio films/shows(Spiderman, Scrubs, 30 Rock) and is signed on for a new Summit movie. Maribeth is similar to Elizabeth. Not sure if her teeth are messed up though.

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
Why so little scoop about your newest members of the B.V. family, Meribeth Bush and Cass Stimulatia? Surely your fans must be as curious as I am to hear more! Can you drop a few hints, pretty please? Who is the more famous of the two? Who's older? Are they known for being film actors or TV?
—Lisa

Dear B.V. Devoted:
Not much more to say on Cass, super sad story, sorry. As for Meribeth, cannot believe no one's gotten this one. Bigass hint in her last name, girlfriends."

Jamee said...

I hate it, but I could also see this as Elizabeth Banks. She's done a lot of indy stuff (Wet Hot American Summer, Lovely Still, etc) but she's still pretty big but with only a couple big titles (40 Year Old Virgin, 30 Rock). I like her and I think she's hilarious, but I could see it!

LMS130 said...

innnnnteresting. Ted answered my BB question about Elizabeth Banks, but he left out the part where I asked if she's ever been a BV. That was originally the last part of my question. Did he leave this out because it would out her for Maribeth??

Dear Ted:
I love Elizabeth Banks on 30 Rock. Any chance she would take a TV role permanently? She and Alec Baldwin are hilarious together!
—Lisa Marie

Dear Bankable Babe:
Why not both—or at least a more regular role on the small screen to go along with her rising big-screen creds. Think this lady is one of the funniest in the Biz and definitely deserves better flicks than Zac and Miri Make a Porno.

Jessica said...

Elizabeth Banks fits a lot of the clues...quasi-pretty girl next door, a couple of big studio jobs, but mostly boutique flicks...plus, she kind of has that guy's girl appeal, so it would be kind of a shock if she was a diva.

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
This is my second attempt at Maribeth Bush—I'm not a quitter! Though HBO might wish that Evan Rachel Wood would stop trying to extinguish their bank accounts with her not-so-pretty persuasion...am I right? Or is it back to the bloody drawing board?
—TortieTude

Dear Behind The Bush:
Better go sharpen your fangs, 'cause Ev isn't our demanding diva. At least not this time."

blurry vice said...

This was right underneath the above latter -

"Dear Ted:
I love Elizabeth Banks on 30 Rock. Any chance she would take a TV role permanently? She and Alec Baldwin are hilarious together!

And often Ted gives clues in the same bitch backs where he posts questions about BVs!

I like the Elizabeth Banks guess, also, isn`t she from Texas? Bush country?

Clancy said...

LMS, Toni C does have bad teeth but Elizabeth has chiclet teeth which could do with some fixing too. They sort of come at you. Perhaps that's what he means. But Toni's are worse.

Georgia Barrett said...

my guess was going to be Abbie Cornish. she's Australian, kind of plain looking without major make-up, definitely CURVY, strange teeth.

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
You said that we really should have figured out who Maribeth Bush is by now, but I have to admit that I—and this is very unusual—don't really want to. You haven't really given me any reason to care. She is considered difficult on the set because she wants to be well paid to do her job? Say what? Just as an aside, does the producer who thinks so also say the same things about male actors when they try to negotiate for good salaries? Now, if Maribeth really is a diva, not to mention deceitful, I want deets! Come on, Ted, give me something juicy on her, and I'll give you my best guess! Deal?
—Agusta

Dear Pay Day:
Trust, babe, it's not that she wants to be paid well to do her job, it's that she thinks doing her job is worth so much more than it actually is. It's practically extortion what this big-egoed broad is doing to the studio. There's a way to go about getting cash—male or female—but M.B. is too damn classless to do it properly."

Rita, Montreal said...

Following Ted's answer today, it reminded me of the Oscar winner for supporting role, who had been rudely asking for cash in order to agree doing interviews, and started being very demanding and tacky in wanting gifts and money for any kind of work or appearances. Mo'nique.

Would she fit?

hordac said...

Hmm, interesting re Mo'Nique because Ted calls her "m-stuff" but I don't think she made a name for herself being the "quasi pretty girl next door", nor can she be considered "slightly" curvy, she's very curvy. Interesting tidbit about her wanting cash for interviews! I hadn't heard that, wow that's pretty bold!

Rita, Montreal said...

Yep, it was all over Access Hollywood, and other Hollywood shows, Ted as well wrote about it... I don't know though about the quasi pretty girl next door, but how would you categorize her beauty?

For the slightly curvy comment, a lot at that time was being discussed about obesity (Gabe sidebe) and Mo'nique is the one who went on tv to defend curvy women, when some stated that they weren't curvy but obese. Maybe we were looking at Ted's vice wrong? we always think about skinny girls being slightly curvy, but maybe he was talking about the opposite. Far fetched?

hordac said...

I think Mo'Nique is attractive in a more womanly mature way, IMHO this describes another type. But really, I don't have any better guesses LOL!

Tara said...

Bush is a common australian term used to describe rural areas. Being from the bush would be outskirts of the metropolitan areas.

I like Toni Collette for this, but I secretly wish it isn't her because Ted hates her so much. Meaning, when he does unleash the TC BV, it is much juicier than her just being a bitch.


What is interesting, is Ted mentioning Evan Rachel Wood as NOT being the subject of THIS BV, emphasis on THIS TIME. So will she fit in a diva-riffic BV from before? Like Polly Luscious or something?

Elise said...

Katie Holmes?
-Played Jackie Kennedy, who belonged to a political dynasty/family like the Bush clan
-Has been in big studio movies (Batman) but praised for smaller indie roles
-Ted's sarcastic comment about being paid millions = she's being paid millions for bearding Tom, so absurd to demand studio $$
-Her ego, like that of her jerkoff "husband," is huge (not to mention inflated by CO$) but no one would first assume it to be her
-Pinnacle = Paramount
-She's filming a movie right now w/Adam Sandler so dealing with studio
-Slightly curvier than most in the biz
-Horrible teeth, usually smirks, doesn't smile with teeth, compare pictures of her veneers to her ground-down real (bulimia?) teeth
-AIA clues: starred w/Anna Paquin in the recent movie The Romantics; Elisabeth Moss is a fellow CO$ member

anita_mark said...

Elizabeth Banks is stunning with perfect teeth. I can't see this being her.

Rita, Montreal said...

Toni Colette is off the table people, Ted just confirmed in his BBs today that she was never a vice.

Basically, when he hinted that the answer was in the last name, Bush, we went too far, to the other side of the world to make a link. It must be closer to home, as in Texas, or maybe a little movie MB had done that has to do with Bush...

We should try and have him nix other guesses like Mo'nique, Amber Heard, Katie Holmes.

saralv23 said...

What about Julia Stiles? She has done a lot of indie-ish films but has also been in the Bourne Series... she has really bad teeth and literally has a "big head" and is slightly curvy, don't know much else about her though

saralv23 said...

Also re: Julia Stiles, from her wiki page

She returned to Saturday Night Live on May 5 appearing as then-President George W. Bush's daughter Jenna Bush in a skit that poked fun at the two first daughters being arrested for underage drinking.

Also haha, this is the last one i promise, Plum Pictures is producing Julias new movie..

Plum Pictures=Pinnacle Pictures

Lots of P's, hmmmmm

Caz1310 said...

What's Rose Byrne like as a person? Surname connection Rose/Bush??. Her teeth seem Ok - not aware of how high her profile is in the US for Ted to take notice. Sorry to be obvious but I may have missed this...has Sophia Bush been eliminated for this one?

katie said...

I think it is kirsten dunst. her teeth are always mocked. she's slightly curvy in the sense she is pretty busty for her slight frame, thus the "slightly." And there are rumors that she has been a bit of a diva when it came to being dealt with on the "On the Road" set. Apparently, she was not happy that Kristen Stewart was getting so much attention and she was getting so little and that since she was the first one cast, more attention and money should have been directed her way. She thinks it's still 2005 when she was more of an "it" girl. She is a household name due to Spiderman, but most of her work lays in indie cinema, ala the virgin suicides.

Rita, Montreal said...

I was in the BBs today with finally an answer:
Dear Ted:
Your Maribeth Bush has kept me thinking about actresses who are not so popular, but who have done great movies that the general public doesn't usually go see. If as you say, the hint is in the last name, do you mean Bush Country? As in Texas? Quite honestly, the only actress that comes to mind, rude enough to ask for money in an unprofessional manner, and who's latest role put her on the map for better offers, well...Mo'nique? Help us out here, Ted. Ms. Bush is too tough to figure out; we need more hints for our Blind Vice addiction!
—Rita

Dear Beating Around the Bush:
Way cold on that guess, R. Here's the deal: I think it's about time we out one of these nasty little divas, and Maribeth is the perfect gal. Keep an eye on Twitter for more deets.

aaah, anybody with a Twitter account, I don`t have one, so keep us posted: Ted said he would out Maribeth!

heather said...

I've been checking twitter off and on all day, no reveal yet that I've seen!

LMS130 said...

Hi, sorry to be a broken record, but I still feel like Ted's hints are pointing to Elizabeth Banks.

-Today he said MB looks like a younger Sharon Stone.
-Last week he answered my Elizabeth Banks question, right after answering one about MB and he removed the part where I asked if she's ever been in a blind vice! That seems like a clue right there.
-Bush is supposedly the biggest clue, and she played Laura Bush in the movie W.
-She is signed on for a Summit movie.
-Veneers are a bit too big for her mouth ala Hilary Duff teeth (that one is kind of a stretch, i admit)

Seems like a strong candidate if you ask me. Who knows though, Ted could have set her up as a decoy guess. In every blind, it seems like there's that second person who hasn't been 'notted' that fits the clues and leaves enough doubt that you can't be 100% sure about the top guess!

Rita, Montreal said...

Let`s hope he really does tweet about MB.

Dear Joey Potter-Head:
Nope, and if she did, it definitely wouldn't be either of the two you listed. Just because you're married to a Vicer doesn't mean that you've made it to the Blind Big Leagues yourself."

blurry vice said...

Dear Ted:
I haven't guessed in a while any of the B.V.s so I am going for Keanu Reeves as Judas Jack-Off and Sharon Stone as Maribeth Bush, because she showed everyone hers in the film Basic Instinct. Also, Elisabetta Canalis isn't as bad as you guys make her out to be. She's actually a nice person. She's popular in Italy for more than her calendars, too.
—Lily

Dear Roaming Free:
You may need to get your Vice radar checked, Lil, 'cause you're way off on both counts. Well, closer on M.B. (but think younger!). No hard feelings to Elisabetta here...lucky gal."

Georgia Barrett said...

What about Thora Birch? She's definitely curvy, has bad teeth, Bush/Birch = foliage names. She's doing Bonnie and Clyde which has been "in pre-production" with Cypress Moon Productions for awhile now. Everyone has said Hillary Duff has been a pain in the ass, right? Maybe Thora Birch has been a pain in the ass.

What about Hilary Duff? She's from Texas and so are the Bushes. She also has really big teeth. They used to be normal before she had them "fixed". She also had a chipped tooth on her wedding day.

Clancy said...

After reading this from Ted:

"Nope! Maribeth is much more lovable, diva and all. Abbie just doesn't give off the funny vibe that Bush does."

I'm thinking this could be Ginnifer Goodwin, as someone else suggested.

She gives off a funny vibe to me. Look at her role in He's Just Not That Into You and also Big Love - she's dramatic in a goofy way.

Plus she epitomises the "earnest, quasi-pretty girl next door" in her roles and, as has also been said, she quite literally IS the girl next door in Big Love.

1) " ... shake some sense into the spoiled babe's BIG head."

She has a big round head.

2) " ... she has been in both indie movies as well as bigger pics" Thank you, HzyStar293.

3) " ... ginnifer goodwin ... is about to be in upcoming summit entertainment films" You got it Cassandra.

4) "The teeth thing-Ginnifer Goodwin does have little teeny teeth if I remember correctly." Yes, you do hordac. Well, in one pic they were a bit ... something. (Okay, that one's a bit of a stretch).

5) She's petite and curvy.

6) She was in Ramona and Beezus, a Summit film, which was released this year (July).

7) 'Household name' could be a play on words and relate to her being stuck in the house most times in 'Big Love'. (Could be classified as another stretch I admit.)

8) Ted says her last name is a hint - she's from Tennessee and George Bush is from Texas, both southern.

9) Ted made Jennifer Aniston bold in this blind and Ginnifer starred with her in He's Just Not That Into You.

How do you like them apples?

Jamee said...

In the BB today, Ted says she's blonder than ML Parker and Tori Collette. And the other day he said she was funny.

I'm still sticking with Elizabeth Banks! Not one thing has told me otherwise...

Jamee said...

raccoonelephant said...

Dear Ted:
Is Maribeth Bush either Mary-Louise Parker or Toni Collette?
—Glorytroll


"We're keeping our M.B. secret—for a while. Sorry, babes! But Mar isn't Ms. Parker or Toni. Think blonder, prettier."

hordac said...

I think Ginnifer is out, was never blonde.

hordac said...

that narrows it down - blonder prettier, hmmm, are we getting an Elizabeth Banks vibe then? I don`t know about it, I think there is nothing wrong with her teeth. Im thinking more and more though, that the bad teeth angle has to do with fangs, therefore someone who plays vamp.

hordac said...

sorry for double post

kristin said...

long time reader, first time poster!

Ok those are all good guesses, however Ted has said that Rachel Ray and Rachel Zoe are "good guesses" which makes me think she either has the first name of Rachel or she is a TV personality and NOT an actress ...

kristin said...

ok never mind after re-reading the original blind, she is an actress, so blonde, maybe named Rachel, and curvy and possibly in a summit picture... or paramount

blurry vice said...

Right below and on top of each other today - MB Blake Lively?

"maribeth
Dear Ted;
We all know that Blake Lively is Anna Wintour's It girl, but it occurred to me while looking at this album that Dianna Agron really deserves more fashion love. She often out dresses and out wears Lea Michele at the same events.
—D

Dear Who Wore It Best:
You're right, D! Dianna wows at every event she attends. But can't all these dressed-to-kill dolls coexist in couture heaven peacefully? Really, I think Di knows she's gorge, she's just not the type of girl who really cares whether she's given props for her red-carpet strut. Blake, on the other hand, is all about being Wintour's It girl, as you say—especially now that she and her beau/costar Penn Badgley have headed for splitsville hell.

Dear Ted:
Is Maribeth Bush either Mary-Louise Parker or Toni Collette?
—Glorytroll


Dear Hide It Under a Bushel, No!
Here's the beef with Bush: I was dead set on offering her up but—this'll give you an idea of why it's hard to reveal Vices, too—the source who 'fessed all on old Mari worries he or she will get in some serious trouble if word gets back to her. And since she gives up goss on other Vices that you'd die without (trust), we're keeping our M.B. secret—for a while. Sorry, babes! But Mar isn't Ms. Parker or Toni. Think blonder, prettier."

Here is a photo in which Blake Lively's teeth look crooked -


http://www.acephotos.org/c13443542/blake-lively-photo.html


- plus she is slightly curvy (skinny but with big boobs). I could see this being her with all of the fuss being made over her in the fashion world right now.

blurry vice said...

Clancy - LMAO - your argument for Ginnifer Goodwin is "she has a big round head"? Seriously? I'm not even going to get into the other points' ridiculousness. But saying a celeb has a round head so she therefore is this BV? Hilarious. BTW her big round head is not blonde so therefore can not be MB.

blurry vice said...

Clancy said...

Geez, settle down blurry vice, all that laughing's going to get people talking.

The big head thing wasn't said in isolation, despite what you thought of the other reasons, and Ted emphasised the word BIG; is it so crazy to think physically? It wasn't as if I'm the first.

"What about Julia Stiles? She has done a lot of indie-ish films but has also been in the Bourne Series... she has really bad teeth and literally has a "big head" and is slightly curvy, don't know much else about her though"

Weird.

Jamee said...

I don't think the first paragraph here matches up with Blake Lively.

When has Blake played "earnest"?

Or the "quasi-pretty girl next door"? Serena van der Woodsen does not a "girl next door" make. Blake is also pretty damn hot, not "quasi" pretty.

Yes, she's done a couple smaller, indy projects, but "the majority of her income" obviously comes from GG. And I'll bet you any money that her paycheck from GG alone is in the millions (plural).

The only things that I can think that match are blond and her teeth. Blake's teeth are ick.

Just playing devil's advocate here...

Jamee said...

Oh, and I'm still on the Elizabeth Banks train.

Not only did Ted mention her in a BB for maybe the first time ever right after the MB vice was out, but she fits the clues (see my thoughts on those above). And the clues that have come out recently, blond and funny, also match.

blurry vice said...

Warning ... after googling for those blake lively images and clciking on a few my computer got hit with a virus last night. Something popped up that an anti-virus needed to be scanned and I stupidly clicked on it. I am just getting back online now, am ok now. But fyi I don't know which site or which image but just be careful on what you click on.

Michelle said...

Coming in to join Team Elizabeth Banks. I was liking that guess the first time I saw it weeks ago and never got a chance to comment on it. I think Blake Lively sounds good except for him saying Maribeth has a funny vibe. To me, that is point to EB again. She is known primarily for comedy. I admit, I don't know a whole lot about Blake Lively. So disappointed that Ted decided not to out her after all. What a tease!!!

Michelle said...

Oh, also do want to add--I completely agree with the person who thinks EB is gorgeous. I do too. Still think it's her. :)

Suzanne said...

Following two thoughts here, sorry....

Lainey actually wrote a blurb about Banks being a diva last year at Cannes. How she didn't seem interested or happy to see "lowly staffers," but put on smiles and ran her fingers through the hair of a "sycophant."

Also, Banks doesn't like her own teeth, so could that be what Ted is alluding to??

Hmmm....

saralv23 said...

Even though my Julia Stiles guess is not getting much thought, I still think it's a decent guess.. I don't always think the answer is the most popular person at the moment. A lot of the clues really fit for her.

Although I think the Elizabeth Banks guess is decent, her teeth are far from messed up.

Kelly said...

Maribeth - Elizabeth, Bush - Banks. Remember he said at some point the name gives it away? Maribeth Bush rings a lot like Elizabeth Banks....

Michelle said...

Hi Kelly-also, as a previous commenter mentioned awhile back, she played Laura Bush in the movie "W".

LMS130 said...

In today's BB, Ted answers a question about her and Lloyd Boy-Toyed (Alec Baldwin) working together. He confirms that they have and that its an excellent clue.

What do you think? Can we close the books on this one and make Elizabeth Banks the official top suspect?

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
I'm enjoying the Six Degrees of Maribeth Bush game. How about Lloyd Boy-Toyed—any chance he has worked with Maribeth?
—Leslie

Dear Bushels of Fun:
Yes, they have worked together. Excellent clue request."

Jamee said...

Well well well, if Alec is LBT, then yes I think MB is EB.

And even if LBT isn't Alec and he's one of the other "top suspects" here (Jeff Bridges), they worked together too. I don't think LBT is JB, but if he was...

blurry vice said...

Well, Lloyd is most likely Alec BAldwon but also might be John Cusack.

What about Michelle WIlliams for MB? Today Ted said she was a BV.

Jamee said...

Rita, Montreal said...

Hey Savannah,
Your answer made sense for a little while, but then, on the same site, I saw this:

http://www.deadline.com/2010/11/kyra-sedgwick-on-ledge/

Elizabeth is filming right now Man on a Ledge, wich is more current with the bv's blind.

For your link on Heigle, she was «dropped» from the movie way before the movie started filming last March...

Also, Heigle is definitely curvy. As for Banks, she is slightly curvy.
What do you think? Should we hit Ted to eliminate Heigle?

Courtney said...

It's definitely not Tina Fey because Ted said Maribeth is blonde. I don't think it's Julia Stiles because she's on Dexter right now and she's playing a kidnapping victim and looking pretty skinny. If Katherine Heigl can be eliminated then I would say it's definitely Elizabeth Banks, although I'm almost positive that it's her already. The name Maribeth Bush also helps confirm it (as Ted said it would). Ted also keeps posting the 30 Rock questions for a reason. He wants everyone to guess who it is.

titeju said...

In the bitch-back today, ted tagged the article with a "Rachel McAdams" tag. So I wonder what you guys think about this possibity for maribeth bush since no other blind vices mentioned in the BB sounds like her ?

I know she's filming On the Road right now, but I'm not sure which studio is releasing it. She is sometimes blonde, sometimes light brown, and I know she has a pretty big gap in her front teeth.

Just my two cents.

A good question would be to ask Ted if in addition to Maribeth's work in boutique films, she's ever forayed into the adult film industry. That would allow him to give a cheeky response, in reference to the movie "Zack and Miri Make a Porno" that Elizabeth Banks did with Seth Rogen.

Since Eva Longoria was inducted last round, we thought it was only fair to put her soon-to-be ex-hubby in there also. Sometimes it takes two to vice.

As for Liz Banks, her Vice ain't nothing new in Hollywood (and certainly wouldn't make you think that differently of her), but she seems to be a fan favorite. As for Lopez, that one might be slightly more stunning. A lot more stunning, actually."

for Elizabeth Banks' B.V., I always thought that was an easy one as well—her moniker is almost the same as her name. Right?

Dear Easy Shmeasy:
Wish I could too. I'm beyond over Coco. So let's just move on to Liz: I guess the names have some similarities, but they're not that close. It's not like

their initials match up or anything."

"Dear Ted:
I was going through the Blind Vice archives and ran across and oldie but a goodie. What's going on with Maribeth Bush? Is she still climbing the Hollywood Ladder and stepping over everyone to get to the top! Thanks!
—Cindy

Dear Money Talks:
Puh-lease, Cindy. When you've got ovaries on ya like Maribeth does (trust, she is not afraid to tell those studio folk what's what) you don't have to climb that ladder very long. The 'tude-tastic Ms. Bush is at the top of her game."

Guys. don't assume it's Summit. Pinnacle = Paramount. Remember the snow-covered mountaintop logo? :)

Dear Ted:
My gut is telling me that Siren Pictures of the recent Blake Barbina Blind Vice is the same studio as Pinnacle Pictures of the Maribeth Bush Blind. How's my

gut doing?

Dear Trust Your Gut:
Both of those picture houses have a lot in common…including certain ways of handling stars who bite the hands that feeds them. But while Blake bent to the

will of Siren Pictures, Maribeth ended up scoring the giant paycheck she wanted. Sometimes being an H.B.I.C. pays…literally."
