Page Six- Just Asking

Which Hollywood actor has a penchant for porn stars whom he visits regularly with a guy friend? The actor then films his friend in the act...Which affable TV anchor regularly takes trips to Florida to be with his mistress while his wife knowingly sits at home?... Which TV star is so desperate to milk his image as a caring father that he tips off fotogs to catch him being a doting dad in public places-then hands the kid back to its mother once the snapper has his shot?

Oh that 3rd one has gotta be Charlie Sheen! Right? First two not sure but they are juicy.

I said...

@blurry: don't think #3 is Charlie Sheen at all. Denise is known for doing that, not Charlie. From what I hear, Charlie is much more honest in that respect (and in many others).

#1 Screams Charlie Sheen to me. Wasn't he all over the news recently regarding his Vegas porn fun?

#2 Matt Laur(sp?)?

I said...

Don't know why I think Alec Baldwin for #3. Maybe b/c he was caught on tape calling his kid a "little pig" and perhaps that would make him desperate to rehab his image as a caring father?

Hollywood is a double standard town. Women are more pressured to be doting parents, not men so if a man wants desperately to be seen as that...something must have happened...like the "little pig" incident. Also, Alec may quickly hand his daughter back to her mom b/c he now feel uncomfortable around her due to the "little pig" incident and the ensuing ramifications of not having seen her for a long time b/c of it...so basically lost touch with her.

Is Charlie Sheen ever seen with his kids? I know Denise and their girls were nearby for one of his more recent benders, but I don't think I've ever seen photos of him being a doting father.

I feel like these don't really have enough details to be easily figured out unless you heard the rumor elsewhere before. #1 could be anybody. The selection pool for #2 is a bit smaller, though. But other than the guy being a TV anchor, we just know he's married. Aren't they all married? #3 could be the most easily solved, at least for me: TV actor who is portrayed in the media as a loving father, likely no longer with the mother (since he "hands the kid back"). Actually, the phrase "hands the kid back" makes the kid sound pretty young. And since it just mentions one kid, I'm thinking it's either his only child or the only one he has with that woman. Which TV actors fit that description?

Kristen said...

Wow, right after I posted my last comment, I thought of an actor who fits that description: Matthew Settle from "Gossip Girl". His daughter Aven is almost two, and he and his wife split in February. I found quite a few pictures of him with his daughter, mostly without mom around. And he seems to talk about his daughter quite a bit, too. And last year, there were rumors of him and his costar Kelly Rutherford being an item, and she said that they're just friends who mostly talk about their kids. And he's a New York based actor, so it would be easy for the Post to get this info. They love to focus on the locals, if possible.

Katie said...

For some reason, I instantly thought of David Beckham for #3, but him and Victoria are still together, and they have numerous children. This one is hard, and like Kristen said, there's not a lot to go off of on the other ones.

Kristen said...

Plus, #3 has to be a TV actor, which David Beckham is not.

Katie said...

Oh so true. Can't believe I missed that part. I like the Alec Baldwin guess.

Tara said...

Not that I can't see Alec Baldwin being dicky like that, I think it's a dad with small children--hence "handing" it back to it's mom. And since it doesn't say they aren't together, I would like to suggest Mario Lopez (needs people to think he is a family dude cuz of his new show), or Jerry O'Connell.

Clancy said...

Jerry O'Connell has twins so it'd have to be 'kids' for it to be him, although that's really a semantic argument. Ethan Hawke sprang to mind - he's New York based and I can totally imagine him doing this. The only thing is he's known more for his film work even though he has done TV.

Sue said...

I thought number 3 was Eddie Cibriani, how many times do we get pix of him and Leanne with the kids around... Trying to rebuild some credibility / PR?
#1 Charlie Sheen seems way too obvious, its probably someone completely from left field.

Clancy said...

Maybe Mickey Rourke for #1; there's often a hooker hanging off his arm. As for his friend, could be anyone. Sounds like it's not someone of great import though.

Stacey said...

My first thoughts were:

1. Charlie Sheen
2. Matt Lauer
3. Mario Lopez

But Sheen is probably too obvious for #1. That one could be anyone, very vague.

Rita, Montreal said...

I'm with Stacey and I for numbers 1 and 2 (sorry, but tihi!)
For #2, Matt Lauer's wife had given up on leaving him everytime he has an affair. And now she simply doesn't give a damn anymore.
#3: would like to throw in David Arquette or sleazy Jon Gosselin. Cibrian still looks good. As for Lopez, think his girl is still too young, and doesn't go out much with the kid without its mother.

Kristen said...

"And since it doesn't say they aren't together"

It doesn't say that, no. But I think that it's more likely that the parents aren't together because "hands the kid back" seems like an odd phrase to use for the situation if they're both going home together.

From his IMDB page, it looks like Mario Lopez hasn't done much acting in years. Pretty much just a few "Nip/Tuck" guest spots. So I'm not sure he'd be referred to as "TV actor" since that's not what he's really known for anymore. I would think that if it's him, he'd be referred to as a "TV personality", like Ryan Seacrest. Yeah, these are all semantics arguments, but many clues are found in the semantics.

Jamee said...

#1 NO idea, but Charlie Sheen is WAY WAY WAY too obvious, and technically, this would be non-news if it were him. No way.

#2 definitely Matt Lauer. It's a known secret that he screws around.

#3 Chris Noth? David Boreanaz? Eric Dane? (that would be sad!) Taye Diggs (also sad!) David Arquette is not a TV actor, so I'm going to scratch that, neither is Mario Lopez. I thought exactly what Tara did--it's probably someone with at least one small child that gets carried around. But it's not necessarily someone with ONLY one child, just one that's small enough to get "handed over."

duffgrl said...

I agree w/ Matt Lauer for #2 also. Not sure on the other 2 but #3 is so NOT Alec Baldwin! His daughter is, like, 16 or something so he wouldn't be "handing her off" to her mother...also, he is not "desperate to milk his image as a caring father"...his career is fine. I agree it's someone like Eddie Cibrian or even Matthew Settle as someone mentioned.

Caz1310 said...

My guesses:
1: Most men in Hollywood LOL (Charlie Sheen)
2: No idea of US news anchormen
3: Again, most dads in Hollywood! Jerry O'Connell? I think the "milk" comment is a clue - who has been in those US Milk promotion ads (was Rebecca in one with the twins)? I was going to say Mr Tori Spelling but he's hardly a TV star hee hee

duffgrl said...

So true on #1 and #3 Caz!!!! There is probably more than one right answer in both blinds...

Stacey said...

Well for #3, it actually says "tv star" which is more vague than tv actor. Lopez has a reality show, plus he hosts one of those entertainment shows.

He looked like he was mugging for the cameras in the pap shots I saw of him holding the baby with his gf. I only watched a few minutes of his show but he seems pretty self absorbed. He does have character issues. Remember how Ali Landry divorced him two weeks after they got married b/c she found out he was cheating.

Also I didn't get the impression from reading this that the guy was separated from the mother...I read it as if they were all out together as a family. Those are the reasons Mario came to mind but like others said, there are alot of other choices for this.

Kristen said...

Stacey, you're right. It does say "TV star". I thought it said "TV actor". So non-actors work for this, too. I'm with duffgrl. Even if the Post was thinking of specific people, there are probably many who fit these descriptions just as well.

Tara said...

Good read, Stacey! I still think Lopez could work, just look at his pics introducing the baby to the world in People! He looks dicky even holding the baby. He is sickening.

I also read the "hands the baby back to his mother" as, lets say, the dude arranged a pap outing where they went for a walk together, and he grabs the kid when he sees the paps, and hands it back to mommy when they are done.

Ooooh I am really excited about this--how about Wilmer Valderrama for number 1? He is Douchey McDoucherson.

shipperatheart said...

For #3 it pains me to guess: David Boreanaz. Boyfriend has had to do some repair works on his family man image after last year's scandal, has been often snapped with kidlets in tow the past year, and whenever he's holding up poor marriage-saving baby Bardot, he just...doesn't look entirely comfortable doing it. :-/

Tara said...

I don't hate that, Shipper. He is desperately in need of an image overhaul. I need to see these pictures. I still like Lopez first though, because he oozes desperation.

Rob said...

1. Zac Effron

Clancy said...

Interesting. It doesn't say female porn stars so it could be a male Hollywood actor visiting male porn stars with a guy friend.

mo said...

#3 Scott Disick?

Tara said...

Mo, I was just thinking that lastnight. He totally would want to seem like he cares when he could give a flying you know what! This is my new favorite guess, because I cannot stand him, he is so dicky and I can picture him being an ass like this. No one call me on my ADD here (I will own it myself), like everyone said, all of these could be so many different people. I am settling on the douchey Mr. Kardashian.

BROOKE said...

Wasn't Macauly Culkin just photographed with a porn star?? Could he be #1 b/c Charlie Sheen while I would easily believe it seems too easy.

Mickey said...

I think #3 has just been solved. Just read on usmagazine.com that Eddie Cibrian is sick of his "philandering sleezy" image. He has hired and image conculatant and The consultant told the newly-engaged star, 37, to be seen more with his and his ex Brandi Glanville's kids Mason, 7, and Jake, 3.

kadixonlaw said...

@Mickey... I was so excited after reading that article that I just rushed over to this site to post about it. I was thinking about this blind the entire time I was reading about his new image consultant. And, boy, does he need it! I doubt anyone will be fooled, though. ; )
