New from Lainey 3/29/11: Even B List needs a beard

New from Lainey

Even B-List needs a beard

It’s not just the super elite actors, the film stars, who need to beard and pretend. Even the lower ranking ones do too. Calling him B List might be a little generous, but he has had his share of magazine covers, is the face of a few shows, and is surprisingly entrepreneurial, with successful projects across several other platforms, all banking on looks and virility. While I can’t personally see it, his appeal is strong enough that it has overcome his reputation as a chronic philanderer whose wife left him because he couldn’t stay faithful. It was always assumed that he was cheating with women. And in a way, given his sex symbol image, that may have worked for him.

But what if the cheating was with men? One night in New York, he was on the receiving end of a very enthusiastic blow job from a very enthusiastic young giver who was clearly not his baby mother because his baby mother is, obviously, not a boy. The baby mother very likely knows though. After all, it wouldn’t be an arrangement that she’d be unfamiliar with, given where they met. Still, dude, if you’re keeping that kind of secret, and you hit up a bar to get blown, you may want to tip the staff a little better than you do. Because they are talking. And it’s not like people haven’t been wondering this about you for a long, long time anyway.

Update Lainey has eliminated -

Top suspect - Mario Lopez

Mario Lopez?

sistah2 said...

Lainey's given alot of specific clues on this one. Wife left him due to cheating, has a baby mama, B list, on mag covers, successful in more than one area of entertainment. She mentions 'face of many shows' - this implies tv, maybe stage?
My only guess at this point is Ryan Phillipe who fits well, except he does not do tv.

kristen said...

NYCGirl, you are so right! I think it's Mario Lopez too. His really short marriage to Ali Landry dissolved over rumored infidelity & he met his baby mama on Broadway while he was doing "A Chorus Line". Totally fits.

Stacey said...

Mario Lopez was my first thought reading this as well.

Almost BList - check

Face of a few shows - check

Sex symbol image yet not Lainey's type - check

Magazine Covers - Check

Wife left due to chronic philandering - check

Baby mama - check

gay rumors - check

This guy is super shady. When he married Ali Landry, she called it quits after two weeks because she found out there was cheating at the bachelor party. She must have found out something pretty bad. Wonder if he was cheating with a dude.

Also he meets this girl Courtney Mazza while doing the Broadway show of A Chorus Line, and all of a sudden she's his baby mama and he's making a reality show out of it. They don't seem like a genuine couple to me - his body language does not seem very into her.

Ryan Philippe is another good guess but Lainey has always seemed pretty clear that he cheats with women. Plus has he ever done tv?

NYCGirl, Kristen & Stacey, I'm on the Mario train as well. He's been on a few TV shows, on Dancing with the Stars for a few seasons, he does a lot of hosting (I think he's hosted a bunch of Miss Americas or the like)and yes, he's performed on Broadway. That's where he met his baby mama, a fellow performer -- and performing in a Broadway musical is a good environment for men who love men, which is what Lainey means by "considering where they met".
Definitely fits for all the different venues he's in.

I'm pretty sure I've seen his face on magazine covers. His marriage (to a commentator on a Miss Teen USA pageant) was annulled after two weeks because of his infidelities. Evidently he was cheating on her the whole time they were together. Yuck.

BTW, on another site, a couple of months ago, there was a blind about an entertainer who basically holds his new baby for the cameras, then passes the infant back to the nanny as soon as the film crew disappears. Most of the comments were that our Mario was "father of the year" on that one. too. Double yuck.

If it's him, he's quite the piece of work.

Mario Lopez is my guess...

Brainspin said...

Did some digging and Lainey refers to Mario Lopez as barely a D list actor - link below. My guess, courtesy of a gal I know, is Matt LeBlanc. Based on my research he appears to fit all the criteria. The Mario Lopez link is:

Leanne said...

Totally Mario! I was thinking that while reading the first few lines (Lainey was more obvious than usual) and the rest of her post just confirmed it. Beyond the points raised above, Lainey's made numerous comments over the years about her not finding him attractive despite his constant trying...ie: smutty tingle links to him posing shirtless on a beach with captions to the effect of "and people find this sexy?"

In addition to the hosting duties you guys mentioned...he also did America's Best Dance Crew and is a host on Extra...if you wiki him, he's credited with tons of random, short lived hosting gigs. He also makes $ off fitness endorsements and supplements.

Dr.DuckyDuck said...

I am super impressed with the quick guess of Mario Lopez. When I read this, I could not for the life of me picture someone that would fit (though I'm never very good at guessing blinds that are not completely obvious).

Not that this is entirely relevant, but I thought the blind about the guy who held his kid for photo opps was revealed to be Eddie Cibrian, though I might be wrong.

twitch said...

What did Lainey mean about the baby mama being familiar with "this kind of thing"? Does this mean that she has been a beard before? Or just that a lot of actors on Broadway have beards?

I wouldn't have thought a Broadway actor would need a beard, since so many people assume all of them are gay anyway!

HKCCRCLC said...

@twitch, I think she means there are a lot of gays doing their thing, as it were, on Broadway, which is where they meant.

HKCCRCLC said...

Oops...met.

Kirby said...

B-List Closet Case = Mario Lopez

My first thought was Mario Lopez too!

Rita said...

Am on the Lopez train as well. He does fit a whole lot!

Still, same as Lainey, don't find attractive in the least, and don't understand the fuss made about him.

Kelly said...

That's what I'm talking about! BIE has the BEST blind guessers out there, hands down!!!

I'm on board with the Mario Lopez guess as well.

jjonefiftypb said...

Did anyone think about Ryan Phillipe? Reese Witherspoon was a beard for Jake Gyllenhall. I'm not sure that Ryan is an A list actor but I thought I'd throw it out there.

Stephanie said...

Is Mario Lopez REALLY B list though??? Everything else does fit, but I just can't reconcile him as a B.

Brainspin said...

I'm with Stephanie. Everything else definitely points to Lopez but Lainey has referred to him as D list at best.

kristen said...

totally agree that B list is extremely generous for Mario Lopez, but Lainey says that herself in her reluctant admittance that he kind of seems to be everywhere. her D list comment was from awhile ago (2008, i think?), and i think Lopez's profile has jumped up since then - the baby has a lot to do with that boost, no? (has anyone actually seen his reality show with his baby mama & baby? i suddenly have so much curiosity!)

Testing123 said...

I have a really hard time believing Lainey would refer to Mario Lopez as B list. He's a D list, tops. This has got to be someone else.

Okay, read the blind.

"Calling him B List might be a little generous, but he has had his share of magazine covers, is the face of a few shows, and is surprisingly entrepreneurial, with successful projects across several other platforms, all banking on looks and virility."

She's saying he's not B-list RIGHT THERE, but is calling him that because he has all this stuff on his resume. Again, your opinion is moot with Lainey. She writes the blinds as she sees them. It's not like a poll or anything

Jamee said...

Oh sorry, kristen just said all that. Either way, I'm in agreement with everything she said!

Rita said...

Everything really fits ML, even when Lainey states that B-list is too generous.

As for the tramping, remember when he was sleeping around with all the starlets? Spending 24 hours in Vegas with Britney right after she left K-Fed and was heading to a meltdown, then Lindsay... He was in gossip mags back then quite often.

Also, it is common knowledget that he treated on his first wife the day they were married. She asked for annulment 18 days later. She used to be the Cheetos girl in the commercials.

Pixel Counter said...

Easy on the caps Jamee, we're all just trying to solve the same riddle. I'm not convinced that its Mario.

blurry vice said...

Mario agreed! I was thinking John Stamos actually... ha! But Mario fits best.

blurry vice said...

LOL... when adding the Mario Lopez Amazon image... he has a cookbook and a workout video? HIlarious! I guess those were his successful side jobs? LOL

Ashlee said...

Blurry, in Lainey's liveblog today, someone guessed John Stamos and Lainey said "No, but good guess." Someone also guessed Rob Lowe and she said it wasn't him either. I'm with team Mario on this one.

talia said...

so maybe he, eva and tony parker used to have some threesomes... since the tabloids always questioned his role in her marriage...?!?

Jamee said...

Seriously Pixel Counter? It's called emphasis. Did I offend you? You're not convinced that it's Mario. I'm convinced it is. What's your point?

And people wonder why so many people leave this board lately! LIGHTEN UP. Oh oops, sorry about the caps lock...

Rita said...

Talia: or maybe Mario and Tony were really getting it on, and Eva was bearding for both!! that is so hilarious. Don't know how they complicate their lives so much.

But looking into Mario's «empire» I am surprised to learn that he had done so well for himself in the body-building business. It does seem to highlight what Lainey was saying about his other endeavors.

pikespeak said...

Mario FTW.

He's had rumors for years.

When there's smoke, there's fire.

Sonia said...

I don't want to sound like a know it all, but I know for an almost fact that Mario Lopez is gay.

candace12 said...
