Blind Vice! Gay Star Gets Closeted Man's Attention!

New from Ted Wednesday August 10 -

Blind Vice!  Gay Star Gets Closeted Man's Attention!


We love Hildago Van Buren, the out star of many different talents. Not only can he hold his own, singing, dancing and acting, he can also hold his latest costar's penis—and does he!
Oh my, what the hell happened? Put the kiddie fans to bed and find out:
Recently Hildago signed up for a big production. You know, one of those shows with row upon row of deluxe dressing rooms. And it was inside one of these private star residences that Hildago got propositioned.
In itself, it's not so shocking. Van Buren's a super charming, ├╝ber-talented guy. No, the shocker here is who made the approach—somebody with hundreds of thousands of teeny-bopper fans, somebody who would probably not work again (at the same level to which he's become accustomed), if word got out he was rubbing his privates up against Van Buren behind closed doors!
Did Hildago bite? No, surprisingly. But he's also no fool:
Before Hildy decided to let his surprise suitor down, telling him he wasn't interested in a quickie, he did take the time to feel up the guy's goods.
How the hell often to you have the chance to check out the family jewels of one of the world's biggest stars?
Like, never!
(Van Buren remains impressed.)
And It Ain't: Ricky Martin, Elton John, Adam Lambert

Update August 24 - Ted has written a new Hildago BV, and has given a name to the star with teeny-bopper fans: Carson Ampi-Dickorous.  Please use the label below to link to the new BV.  In that post we have included full lists of who has been eliminated for both Hildago and Carson.


Top suspect:
Hildago - Neil Patrick Harris

This is juicy :-) First two names come to mind is Neil Patrick Harris and Justin Bieber! Maybe too obvious? Anything involving Biebers genitals is just...don't wanna go there (literally!)

Savannah said...

The last question in the bitch back Ted posted before posting this blind was:
"Dear Ted:
It's been so long since we've had a true update about my favorite Vicer, Nevis Divine, I'm afraid his devotion to his woman will keep us from ever getting a new installment in his Vice archive. Say it isn't so!
—H

Dear Divine Debate:
Even if he stays true to his girl, that doesn't necessarily mean he can't be Vicey in other ways. Just sayin'. I mean, this is Nevis Devine we're talkin' about."

Ted has hinted that the closeted guy already has a Blind Vice moniker. Why wouldn't he just include the closeted guy's moniker in this Vice? Here's my theory: The closeted guy is either underage (someone like Bieber) or he is someone who is already the top suspect for his moniker and it would become too obvious who he is or something. I think the closeted guy is Robert Pattinson (Nevis Devine.) If Ted wrote a blind about Nevis Devine hitting on a guy all of the Twilight freaks who are obsessed with Robert would have been up in arms and Ted wouldn't be able to write about how Robert (Nevis) and Kristen (Terrry Tush Trade) are bi but committed to each other. Plus, today Ted said the closeted guy is older than Taylor Lautner and Nick Jonas, so Robert fits.

Liz said...

When were NPH and Robert Pattinson "co-stars?"

LMS130 said...

Ted answered two of my BB questions about Hildago already and gave us some good clues...

He basically confirmed that the unnamed in-the-closet actor is someone who already has a moniker from a previous BV. So, Nevis, Parrish, Jackie Bouffant, etc are all up for grabs. He did eliminate Taylor Lautner and Joe Jonas and told us we are looking for someone slightly older. That elminates Bieber too for being too young. Rob Pattenson would work or I also thought of Orlando Bloom??

Also, today Ted revealed that there is a Glee connection to the vice and we all know that Neil Patrick Harris guest starred on Glee. I'm guessing that was as good as a reveal for Hildago Van Buren. We do also have to consider Cheyenne Jackson though, who also guest starred and is gay. Jonathon Groff and Chris Colfer are also gay and on glee, but if i remember correctly, don't they both have vices already?

LMS130 said...

Also, the "big production show with row upon row of deluxe dressing rooms" sounds like an awards show or Broadway. Might be easiest to see what awards shows he's attended and see who else was there that could fit. I know he hosted the Tony's recently and attended the Critic's Choice awards.

Cathy said...

LMS - I thought that since the question seemed to be asking if Hildago was on Glee and he said that the vice has a Glee connection, but not what we might expect, he could be saying that one of the players was on Glee, but not who we'd expect - the suitor, rather than Hildago himself?

Cathy said...

To clarify what I mean, your question asked about out-of-the-closet Glee stars, so I took his answer to mean that it might be an in-the-closet Glee star that participated. Since Hildago is out, that would make the Glee star the closeted suitor.

Rita said...

So Hildago Van Buren is an attractive multi-talented out-of-the-closet male star.

And Ted has already confirmed that the young heartthrob that visited Hildago may have already a moniker. Which really narrows down our search!

Still think it's Neil Patrick Harris, for I think he's irresistible, and would've resisted the advances of a younger man because 1 - he may be underaged, 1- NPH is married, and the faithful type.

I would think the description of the superstar fits Taylor Lautner to a T. He has been known to live his sexuality a bit more aggressively and freely; Remember when his people had to reign him in because he was being too obvious with his relationship with a Hollywood type out of the closet?

So my first bet would be Neil Patrick Harris for Hildago Van Buren, and the surprise young suitor would be Taylor Lautner.

But... the AIAs: they're all singers. Out of the closet: Frist one is a Spaniard, which would fit Hildago, the second is an English Sir, which would fit the Van (often an indication of upper-class gentry), and then the all-American Lambert... which doesn't fit with Buren.

For Buren is first off a city in the Netherlands, also there is a French Sculptor named Daniel Buren...

And Lambert is really a French name, very common here in French Canada... so could it be that our Hildago is from French descendants?

I will simplify and stick with NPH for the win.

Cathy said...

Rita - Ted eliminated Taylor and Joe Jonas yesterday afternoon and said it was someone older - which also eliminates Bieber.

LMS130 said...

Well said Rita! But don't forget Taylor has been eliminated along with Joe Jonas and by default Bieber for being too young.

I was just looking at the list of attendees at the Critic's Choice awards and I notice NPH and Elijah Wood were both there. Elijah a known closet-case, right? Maybe it's him??

Rita said...

Well, I just read your comments, and I guess Taylor Lautner is out. That to me would leave Zack Effron: because of the stage connection (which he did before and after High School Musical), as well as the musical connection. However you look at it, Ted's answers confirm that Hildago is Neil Patrick Harris.

The young super star could be Zack Effron? He certainly fits more the age bracket. Or one of the already monikered Jonas Brothers (I believe there are 2 with BVs already).

Cathy said...

LMS - I don't think there are any teeny-boppers obsesses wtih Elijah!

Rita said...

This is too funny LMS, we're typing at the same time!

About Elijah Wood, unfortunately I don't find he fits the description of the young Heartthrob with Hundreds of Thousands of fans... Maybe about 7 years ago with Lord of the Rings. But right now, I think he's not that popular, and about to hit mid-thirties...

Rita said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Rita said...

Cathy - Hilarious! we're all replying at the same time!

Help me out here younger ladies, didn't I hear Effron has New Orleans (French) connections?

hey, I didn't even notice that I was in the BBs today! Now let's hope Ted answers one of my Blind-vice questions this p.m.!

pomme said...

hugh jackman ?

Cathy said...

I think we really need to find out if the suitor's previous BV paints him as being gay, straight, or curious.

Cathy said...

Hugh isn't out, nor does he have teeny-popper fans, so he can't be Hildago or the suitor.

Ditte said...

Zac E fits the clues very well.

Savannah said...

It doesn't say that the closeted guy is young, just that he has lots of young fans. Also found it interesting that Ted says the guy has "hundreds of thousands of teeny bopper fans." If the guy is a big star, like someone from Twilight or Harry Potter, wouldn't he have MILLIONS of fans?

Also maybe we should narrow the suspects for the closeted guy down by BVs that Ted has said are closeted. Ted said that who made the proposition is shocking so maybe it's a guy Ted hadn't known for sure was closeted? What about Matthew Morrison? He's hunky, on Glee, older than Nick Jonas and Taylor Lautner, and there have been rumors about him being gay even though I think there was a blind vice about him and Olivia Munn. But there are also pictures on the internet of him kissing Anderson Cooper's boyfriend. Joe Jonas? Cory Monteith?

Leens said...

Hayden Christensen, Jake Gyllenhaal, Rob Pattinson for closeted heartthrob male star?

Cathy said...

I'm kinda liking Savannah's guess of Matthew Morrison...

Liz said...

I agree that Ted practically confirmed that Hidalgo is NPH - because he has a connection to Glee but isn't actually a cast member. I also agree the suitor has a BV name already - so we've narrowed it down to Zac Efron, Robert Pattinson or maybe Chace Crawford? Teeny Bopper makes me think Zac Efron. . .

Cathy said...

Liz - We don't know that the suitor's previous BV involves being gay.

Mich said...

Assuming Hidalgo is NPH and assuming this was at an awards show, I've been looking on IMDB for the lists of presenters and performer from this year's major awards shows where NPH was a presenter and there were also young male presenters. I think both parties had to at least present or perform to be hanging out in the dressing area.

My guesses are either Daniel Radcliffe at the Tony's or Justin Timberlake at the MTV Movie Awards. If JT is Jerry Rock Butt then Ted has hinted that he may swing both ways. I think Ted has mentioned that DRad is a fan of the ladies, but maybe that's why this was so surprising. Both are young heart-throbs older than Taylor Lautner with lots of young fans. I think we also need to remember that Ted states this mystery guy is "one of the biggest stars in the world". There aren't that many.

Rita said...

Again no pressure on the sisters. Please take your time.

But I've got to discuss the new Carmelita blind that Ted has posted today. yuuuck.

First off, this confirms that Carmelita is indeed Kim K. No hiding, manipulating, or whatever else. This truly is Kim Kardashian.

Second, he's bluntly hinting that Humphries is gay. That he only wants to marry Kim for her fame, and the money that might come his way because of it. Really? Because of course E! Network and the Kardashians have been pushing this wedding down our throats because of True Love? gag me with a spoon.

But fun still that Ted is sending his own message to Kim on his thoughts on Humphries.

Poor Humphries, imagine if he doesn't know yet, but his wedding will be crashed by a former gay lover... this would be interesting tv! Wonder if that's what E! is preparing for us.

Poor Humphries either way.

LMS130 said...

I thought of DanRad also at the Tony's, but he is on the list of people Ted as confirmed do not have a BV. So I think that contradicts the idea that teeny-bopper guy has a moniker.

I like the Zac Effron guess a lot!! He and NPH were both at the People's Choice awards back in January. Do you think that's too long ago? They were both winners so they would stuck around for the after-show interviews and possibly had a chance to interact.

http://m.thehollywoodgossip.com/2011/01/peoples-choice-awards-fashion-face-off-zac-efron-vs-neil-patrick/

Rita said...

LMS - I heard Effron was at the last MTV awards but was not photographed...

LMS130 said...

This could be pure coincidence, but I noticed something funny in this morning's BB. The Hildago question is the last one listed and directly under is a slideshow of upcoming movies, one of which features NPH! I've also noticed in the past that the slideshow usually has a correlation to someone in the BB. Sometimes they are mentioned by name, and sometimes indirectly through their BV nickname. (ie. mention of Strip-ya and then show a slideshow of JLo) I wonder if this is intentional?

btw, the movie was Harold & Kumar, but I don't see anyone in the cast that would fit for NPH's suitor.

KaDixonLaw said...

Someone asked about Zac Efron's connections to New Orleans earlier. I know he is currently filming a movie there and there have been several pictures of him in NOLA recently.

Savannah said...

Let's not forget that Hidalgo could be Cheyenne Jackson (handsome Broadway star who can sing and dance and also acts on 30 Rock and guest starred on Glee.) Or it could be an out actor who has no connection to Glee and it's just that the closeted guy has a connection to Glee. "Connection to Glee" could also point to a guy whose songs have been performed on Glee?

LMS130 said...

Savannah - good point about artists who's songs have been on Glee. Didn't think of that! Also, Ryan Murphy fits into the "connection to Glee" group. Although I doubt he can sing and dance.

For the record, i still think its NPH.

Leila said...

Leila said...

I think Ted is really trying to point us to NPH as Hildago. However, this could be a red herring...

I'm with those who've mentioned Cheyenne Jackson as a possibility. Also, what about John Barrowman who has publicly stated he wants a spot on Glee as one of Rachel's dads? I think he is just as good of a candidate!

sistah2 said...

I am more interested in the guy who is NOT out, who has thousands of teeny bopper fans. First to mind is Bieber. But, we are not supposed to be guessing that, are we? and why not? That is soooo unlike Ted. Methinks it may be cuz this guy's underage.

Gaylen said...

I'm such an American history buff that 'Van Buren' made me think of the 8th President. Probably no hint there.
I don't know if we can really consider mere attendees of an award show as a candidate for the "surprise suitor." Ted calls him Hildago's "latest costar" which doesn't sound like it's someone who just happened to show up. Though he also seems to contradict himself, saying the suitor is "one of the world's biggest stars" but only having "hundreds of thousands of fans." Wouldn't such a huge star have millions, as Savannah pointed out?
Frankly, I have to wonder how this story could get out. Did the suitor proposition him in front of a third party? Did Hildago tell someone? Did the suitor? Why would either of them? Ted doesn't mention if Hildago is attached, but did say the suitor would have a lot to lose if his sexuality became public. If Hildago is not NPH and isn't involved, he might be likely to brag about it.

Savannah said...

Gaylen, earlier I saw this comment on the E comment board: "Hildalgo Van Buren HAS to be Cheyenne Jackson. Martin Van Buren was the president for * * * Andrew JACKSON. And Hidalgo and Cheyenne are both names for counties in various states."

Will said...

This sounds like that British actor who is about to blow up - Luke Evans. He publicly came out in 2003 and is staring in a movie with Kellan Lutz and is gonna be in the Hobit movie - Evans is 32 and is known for his singing and dancing and got famous for a stage production he did there. Plus NPH is married with two kids - seems too much like a good guy to start crotch grabbing some celebrity - don't think sleazy is his style. Juss sayin'

blurry vice said...

I don't think it's NPH. I like the Zac Efron guess as the teeny bopper star. I think that star is someone who already has a BV because Ted did not give him a nickname... he probably already has one.

My thought was: Hildago = Daniel Radcliffe, and teeny bopper star = Justin Bieber.

I haven't caught up on the elims from the bitch backs yet. Will update soon...

blurry vice said...

Rita - that one is up!

sistah2 - I agree, that one is more joucy than Hildago. That is why I think this guy already has a BV name. If he didn't, he would have given him a new one for this BV. So I think Justin Bieber or Zac Efron, or Taylor Lautner.

rynthetyn said...

John Barrowman isn't famous enough to be "one of the world's biggest stars", even though he fits the description otherwise. Besides, he hasn't done anything lately that could be described as having lots of stars there is Comic Con, and that's not the sort of event that has rows and rows of dressing rooms.

We're sure Daniel Radcliffe doesn't have a moniker? If not for that detail, since he and NPH were both at the Tonys, that would fit.

Rita said...

Thanks Blurry, I copy-pasted! Juicy stuff lately, woohoo!

Rita said...

Sistah2 - It's what I though too. That's why I thought it was the Biebs at first (shower! Bleach!) or Taylor Lautner, who has proved that he likes older men, and is a bit more aggressive about his sexuality... until his people threaten him with absolute obscurity to reign him in.

But Ted had confirmed that the Heartthrob is older than Lautner and Bieber. And has hinted that he already has a BV.

Notice how Hildago is an out star, and clearly the heartthrob is afraid that word could get out. I think that one has already a moniker regarding his closeted sexuality.

Leila said...

rynthetyn- Ted is referring to the closeted suitor as "one of the world's biggest star", not Hidalgo himself; he just says he's super charming and talented... as for the young suitor- I could get behind the Zac Efron guess as he is older than Lautner. I agree with those that say this individual likely already has a moniker...

Gaylen said...

@ Savannah, that's a really interesting connection! Do we think it's one that Ted might make, maybe thinking his audience would never see the link?

@ blurry, the blind says Hildago is out. I don't think DanRad has ever made any public statement about his sexuality, besides mentioning his 'boring' nights in with his girlfriend now that he's grown out of his partying phase. He might fit for the suitor, but not the "out star."

Rita said...

Savannah and Gaylen, watch the spelling, it's not HidaLgo, it's HiLdago... Nothing Shakespearean about his name :)

Could it be that someone played Hilda on Broadway? Will do a search.

Tab said...

Just looping back to what LMS said earlier: there is a Glee connection to the Vice. Well, there are three male Glee stars who are firmly out: Chris Colfer, Cheyenne Jackson and Jonathan Groff. Now we know that Hidalgo is older than Joe Jonas, who is 21. Chris Colfer is out (same age as Joe) but Jonathan Groff is 26 and Cheyenne is 36. Of those two, Jonathan has the higher profile IMO. Might Hidaldo be Groff??

Rita said...

Tab - Ted said that HiLdago, not Hidalgo, has a connection to Glee, just not the one we think it is. Meaning it's none of the guys from Glee. Here it is:
Any Glee actors connected to the Hildago Van Buren story? There are quite a few out-of-the-closet stars on that show so I figure it's a good place to start!
—Lisa

Dear Hiding Hildago:
Very clever, Lisa! There is a Glee connection with this Vice, but, probably not exactly the way you're thinking. I'd tell you more, but I think I've already said too much!

So it is someone that has to do with Glee, maybe guest starred like NPH, but is not one of the regulars on the show.

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
Ted, you sneak! You gave a BV name to Hildago Van Buren, but he's not the most interesting part of that story! What about the teeny-bopper loved guy who propositioned him!? Please give him a name! Or at least give us a clue to his identity!
—Lisa

Dear Hildago Humper:
What makes you think this delish dude who is so quick to cop a feel on any (and every) hot fellah around him doesn't already have a monicker of his own?

Dear Ted:
Is Hildago Van Buren hunky Hugh Jackman? And is the person who propositioned him Taylor Launtner or maybe Joe Jonas?
—PupMan

Dear (Sorta) Far Off:
Not quite, P. Interesting guesses, sure, but Hildago is an out-and-proud gay man, whereas Hugh isn't. And as for the suitors, your guesses aren't terrible, but neither are they on the money. Think slightly older but just as swoon-worthy.

Dear Ted:
Any Glee actors connected to the Hildago Van Buren story? There are quite a few out-of-the-closet stars on that show so I figure it's a good place to start!

Dear Hiding Hildago:

blurry vice said...

Lance Bass and Zac Efron?

keetz4 said...

@gaylen..........Van Buren = president and Harris*son = president

Mich said...

So Efron and RPatz have been eliminated. And it sounds like someone who doesn't have a moniker yet. I'm going with my original D Rad guess

Rita said...

Blurry, hmmm... didn't Ted just out Hugh Jackman?

MZ said...

Hunter Parrish and Cheyenne Jackson.

Sasha said...

@Rita-- how did Ted out Hugh? I think I missed that!!

Was anyone else confused about the RPattz/edwin elim?? He said they arent making their vice debut but I thought the suitor was an established vicer?!

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
Was Zac Efron the closeted Hollywood hunk that propositioned Hildago Van Buren? Please don't tell me it was my favorite vampire Robert Pattinson. I don't think my Edward-loving heart could take it.
—KK

Dear Hairy Situation:
Oh puh-lease, Robert Pattinson is so not Mister Van Buren or his closeted suitor. And neither is Zacky. Both of these two dudes have been Vicing for way too long to have just made their debut appearance in the blolumn.
"

blurry vice said...

Rita - not really an outing but knida hinting at something we all know!

Rita said...

Blurry - You must admit though, A very strong hinting.

Bet ya Ted will have a denial soon in one of his BBs. Or something along Hugh's heterosexual exploits with his wife.

Maybe we should ask again about Mr. Jackman's BV, and if he had found a replacement for his 'office' partner.

Cyn said...

How about Ian Somerholder or Paul Wesley as the suitor?

Miss Faye said...

I think Neil Patrick Harris as Hildago and Radcliffe as the no-namer are the only ones that fit the clues so far.

Hildago Van Buren is an out and proud star of many different talents who recently "signed up for a big production"-- the kind with rows of "deluxe dressing rooms". Neil Patrick Harris is an out and proud star who acts, sings, and dances who recently hosted the Tony Awards.

The other character is a closeted star with hundreds of thousands of teeny-bopper fans who would probably not work again on the same level if he outed himself. Daniel Radclliffe is the star of Harry Potter series which is the highest grossing film series of all time and about half of Harry Potter fans are between the age of 5-17 according to scholastic.com. Radcliffe has stated on more than one occasion that he is not gay, but is gay-friendly (meaning he has numerous gay friends and is an active supporter of gay rights). First of all, the reason he keeps being asked about his sexuality doesn't make him gay, but it means several people out there do suspect he is. Also, Radcliffe is at the point in his career just having finished almost a decade of making only Harry Potter movies where he has the freedom to accept a variety of roles and do as he pleases for the most part. If he came out of the closet saying he's gay I think that would limit the roles he could take significantly. But otherwise right now, I'd say he has the world at his feet as far as his acting career is concerned.

Rita said...

Miss Faye - Although Dan Radcliffe is gay friendly, it has been discovered lately that he hides his relationships because he likes older women. Really, really older women. His current LIVE-IN girlfriend is believed to be near mid-forties, and Daniel is nothing near his mid-twenties.

That is why he keeps his private life, very private.

But he could also still be gay. Who knows!

rynthetyn said...

I don't think Daniel Radcliffe is gay, just British.

Rita said...

Well said ryn, they are a lot less macho then the rest, and also, if they happen to sleep with a man early on, it does not mean at all they are gay. Just very much in like or love with that person.

BlahBlahBlah said...

i like the Somerhalder guess. it has to be someone of that ilk whos fanbase relies on teenage girls

Juda1 said...

@Rita

"Well said ryn, they are a lot less macho then the rest"

Really? - Who's Batman? ... British Christian Bale ... Who's Superman? British Henry Cavill ... Who's Bond? British Daniel Craig ... Spiderman? British Andrew Garfield ... MadMax? ... British Tom Hardy

Clive Owen? Alex Pettyfer? Jason Statham? Andy Whitfield? Aaron Johnson? Dominic West? James McAvoy? Gerard Butler? Jim Sturgess? Jamie Bamber? Euan McGregor? And that's just a miniscule handful of actors ...

Just don't really get your analysis. I think the thing with British actors is thats so many of them are from incredibly posh backgrounds & politeness & manners is mistaken for not being alpha ... perhaps being really posh doesn't translate to those overseas. Maybe they are a lot less macho ... I mean, how can they compete with the manliness of Zac Efron, Taylor Lautner, Chace Crawford, Ryan Phillipe, Matthew Morrison, Shia, Ashton Kutcher, JT, Ryan Reynolds, Brad Cooper, Armie Hammer etc etc.. how the hell can Jason Statham or Jude Law compete with any of those macho dudes! [I'm being sarcastic!]

Rita said...

Juda - wow, you certainly are taking this beyond the light-fun way for solving a blind. A difference of opinion and perception. Which is normal.

I maintain that I think Daniel Radcliffe is straight, and could not fit the star with teeny-bopper fans.

However, I can get on the Somerhalder boat, always thought he likes both genders equally, without distinction. Just don't let Tara know, she goes crazy for Somerhalder's blue eyes!

e said...

Ryan Seacrest

Heather said...

Ok I am new to this but here is my guess. I have no idea who the open gay star is. But I think the closet gay star might be Chord Overstreet. In one of the Bitch Backs, Ted said that tho he didnt call the closeted star by a monkier, that star could already have one. Then in another Bitch Back, Ted said there was a Glee Connection. Well, what show is Chord on? He is definitely straight to the public, but he has a BV right?

Maybe I'm way off.

Cathy said...

So Ted seems to have confirmed this morning that the suitor's previous BV involves his fondness for men... I'm still liking the Effron guess, but if the Glee connection is to NPH, there are tons of options for the suitor. Maybe we could get Ted to give us an age cap?

And Rita - remember what I said last week about multiple potential I's re-incarnated...

Rita said...

Heather - I think the Glee connection was in regards to the Hildago blind, not necessarily the heartthrob who made the advances.

That is why am still sticking with Neil Patrick Harris, who has been on Glee very successfully a few times, or someone close to his profile: Broadway, singing, dancing, acting, big awards MC.

Cathy - I see too:) as long as it's polite and respectful, hey, we can all deal with a bit of difference of opinion.

Cathy said...

Rita - Ted didn't actually specify which of the players had a glee connection when he answered, through the question specifically asked about Hildago.

Cathy said...

Ok, I'm blind - didn't realize that he already eliminated Efron for the suitor...

KaDixonLaw said...

@Cathy and Rita: LOL! So, anyone who disagrees with regulars on this blog is like "I" reincarnated?

Does that sound as petty and close-minded when I say as it does when you guys repeatedly post it?

I remember the "I" fiasco and yes, his or her comments were over-generalized re: women and he/she was run out of here over 6 months ago as a result. In a similar fashion, the earlier comment re: English men was also grossly over-generalized. No big deal; it happens sometimes.

I just don't understand why we have to make snide comments about those who disagree with us. Come on, let's be different than the juveniles who post on the AT boards.

Cathy said...

I'm all for friendly debate and discussion, but sometimes people are a little too quick to attack or their comments are more mean-spirited than productive and I just think that crosses a line.

Rita said...

KaDixon - You and I have always been polite towards each other. Let's keep it that way. Disagreement is fine on the subject at hand, i.e. blind items. Personal attacks on disagreeing is not.

Bullying newbies for not checking this blog's history is not effective, it doesn't also promote its continuity, i.e. more hits. Common decency wins you always new Friends. True, I do lack patience with female bashing. A bit of girl power from time to time is good for the balance of things.

Would rather much discuss why Hildago was impressed with the little 'hand holding'. Has Ted ever discussed a heartthrob's impressive... Hand? I remember Skarsgard's blind being described more on the long, not the width (I remember going ewwwww when reading that one). Could it be that Skarsgard is involved?

Or anyone else remembering a blind item about a closeted gay man's... impressive 'hand'?

KaDixonLaw said...

@Rita - You're right. We have always been polite and I certainly hope that we can continue that and enjoy pleasant banter in the future. I enjoy the viewpoints that you and Cathy provide. I'm just not sure that you realized how the "I" references were coming across. I hate to see newbies afraid to speak their minds when they have a differing opinion. I remember the first time I posted a comment on here and it was intimidating because of the thoughtful and insightful caliber of the comments from the regulars.

Back on topic, you're right about the A.Skars size reference. The only blind I remember regarding... uh, girth... was King Schlong. I wonder, though, if the line, "Did Hildago bite," points to one of the vamps? That being said, Ian Somerhalder would definitely fit for the unnamed suitor. I'm also wondering if another one of the Twilight vamps might work. I was thinking about Kellan Lutz, but I'm not sure that he could be considered one of the biggest stars in the world. On the other hand, we have to consider the source and Ted is all about Twilight. Also, the fact that he isn't the biggest of the Twilight stars could be the reason behind Ted saying that this person only has hundreds of thousands of fans instead of millions.

Savannah said...

Anyone else find it interesting that 3 of the 4 guys Ted had Notted for the guy-with-teeny-bopper-fans are guys who have been "proven by a process of eliminations / dates" to be gay BVs (Robert = Nevis, Zak = Jackie Bouffant, Taylor = Parrish) which makes me think it's either Alexander Skarsgard or Ian Somerhalder.

@Sasha, I agree that this line is confusing "Both of these two dudes have been Vicing for way too long to have just made their debut appearance in the blolumn." So it's either a guy who DOESN'T have a Vice or a guy whose Vice was first written about fairly recently, debuted after Zac and Robert's.

Nettie said...

I'll go with the NPH/DanRad guess.

Hildago - name of a movie about Frank Hopkins and his horse, Hildago. Could be a reference to Dan play Equus. Character has a sexual fascination with horses.

"big production" "row upon row of deluxe dressing rooms"-Tonys

"hundreds of thousands of teeny-bopper fans"- Harry Potter fans

"probably not work again(at the same level to which he become accustomed)- Dan's character in H2S goes from a window washer to Chairman by the end of the play.

sistah2 said...

biggest hint here is Ted out and out saying 'hes one of the biggest stars in the world' THAT is one hell of a statement to narrow these guesses - I agree its probably Daniel R. and NPH

medusa said...

There seems to be some confusion over the combination of "one of the biggest stars in the world" and "hundreds of thousands of teeny bopper fans," but while films like the Twilight or Harry Potter series might have millions of overall fans, would it make sense that only hundreds of thousands are actual "teeny boppers"?

jes7o said...

Well, after today's BB....Hidalgo is definitely NPH. NPH and Jackman are friends and performed on the Tony's together...

For some reason, Dan Radcliffe is just not fitting for the seducer for me. Yes, he has a lot of fans, but I don't think most of them would care if he were gay or straight. He dated a much older woman and it wasn't that big of a deal.

I am leaning towards Justin Timberlake more and more....

Testing123 said...

It can't be Daniel Radcliffe. Ted said yesterday that DanRad doesn't have a vice:

"...And while he's certainly not as innocent as his big-screen alter ego, he isn't quite naughty enough to deserve a Vice."

So NPH and...?

Savannah said...

@Testing123, I don't think that comment Not's Daniel Radcliffe. Since he may be the guy in the Vice who didn't get a moniker it could still be him. Plus, even though Ted made that comment earlier on insinuating the unnamed guy already has a BV, his comment yesterday about how Rob and Zac have been vicing too long to have just made their appearance in the blolumn makes it sound like the guy doesn't have a moniker and that this was his first appearance in a BV.

The thing that wouldn't fit for Daniel Radcliffe: In the BV there is mention of Hidalgo checking out the guy's "jewels" and "remaining impressed." Daniel did full frontal nudity for Equus. There isn't much mystery about his "jewels" so if it's him why would Ted make that such a big part of the Vice?

Rita said...

@Savannah, I absolutely agree with your assessment of Daniel R.'s... package. Judging by scenes of Equus on the internet, his is not the kind to be in awe of. Although, must admit, he was very comfortable with nudity on stage, live.

It could be Alex Skarsgard for in his first blind his package was described... And he definitely is the one with 100 000 of fans, not millions.

And as Jes7o said, Ted has confirmed, not only yesterday, but a few times before as well, that Daniel R., as well as the rest of the HP cast, does not have a vice; and even Ted was very surprised about his admission in regards to alcohol abuse.

KaDixon - can't be King Schlong either... The teeny bopper thing: he has a much older and wider fan base. Female of all ages, as well as men. And oddly enough, I believe he would still get as much movie roles, or even more, if he were to ever come out. But he's not gay, just likes variety on his plate.

I think Hildago is pretty much solved by now. It is Neil Patrick Harris.

For the other star, we could ask Ted more insistently to confirm if he already has a blind vice or not.

My logical guess would be yes, for I don't think Ted would miss a chance of having a blind vice on a closeted, in his words: One of the world's biggest stars. My guess that big star already has a moniker. And is more into acting, then singing, because of the statement that 'he would probably not work again (at the same level to which he's become accustomed), if word got out'.

Rita said...

To Blurry - Again today, Ted has bluntly confirmed that Hugh Jackman has a vice, he said:
You are so close, as Hugh and Hildago are very good friends, just not the same person! And, baby, you bet Hugh's got a nice, juicy Vice in HIS CLOSET, wouldn't you like to know what it is!

LMS130 said...

Are you thinking it was a hint that Hugh could be the suitor? I don't know the nature of NPH and his friendship...could you see Hugh hitting on him? It would be somewhat of a stretch to say he has teeny-bopper fans, but I suppose the X-Men movies would count. He's pretty popular as Wolverine.

Rita said...

LMS - no, I meant that Ted has openly stated, if you follow the blind vices closely, that Hugh Jackman is gay. Twice now, he has answered in the past 7 days 2 questions about Hugh Jackman that confirm, again if you follow the BVs, is in the closet.

As for the superstar heartthrob, I think we need at least a confirmation if he already has a bv moniker or not. Jackman could be it, but I don't think he's one with teeny-bopper fans.

0dcd77c2-c822-11e0-bd88-000bcdcb5194 said...

taking a shot in dark here,, but what about shia lebouf for the closeted actor?? He's a pretty big star,, and a lot of the girls I know love him. Also his past blinds about getting into fights for people calling him gay?

Rita said...

People, take it to the Carmelita blind, it just heated-up!

Nettie said...

@Savannah: I think "checking out the family jewels" meant touching them, not seeing them.

Dr.DuckyDuck said...

Shia LeBouf said in an interview with Playboy that he's not very well-endowed, so I think he's off the table as the suitor.

If Hildago is really NPH, and the event is likely the Tonys, then shouldn't we be trying harder to figure out who else attended the Tonys? The best guesses I have based on the pictures of attendees are Jim Parsons (though I wouldn't necessarily describe his fans as "teeny boppers" and I'm not sure he would be considered closeted), Chris Rock (which is just confusing), and Daniel Radcliffe (which has been pretty hashed through).

Can this not be referring to the Tonys? NPH appears in the new Muppet movie, which can be considered to have a lot of trailers lined up due to all the cameos. Maybe it was someone else doing a cameo?

doaxaca said...

NPH is recently attached to the new Muppets movie which has a bunch of great A-LIST movie stars. One being the cutie Sterling Knight, from the So Random series on the Disney channel. He's a mini Zac Efron! Definitely my guess.

Rita said...

Ted confirmed today that Jake Gyllenhal is neither Hildago, nor the teen-heartthrob super star.

whitney said...

What about someone on the cast of What to Expect When Your Expecting? This is one of those casts full of A-list stars and includes Rodrigo Santoro (possible Hidalgo), Glee's Matthew Morrison (a hint of a Glee connection was given by Ted), and Chace Crawford (possible teeney-bopper celeb)?

Cathy said...

I agree that Hildago is most likely NPH, but I just can't get on board with the Daniel Radcliffe guess for the suitor. Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought all his fans love him for being Harry Potter, not because they want to jump his bones. While I don't think he's gay, if he were to come out, I don't think anyone would be especially shocked and given his preference for Broadway roles lately, I really don't think it would hurt his career.

Stephen said...

There is no doubt that Hildago Van Buren is none other than: Cheyenne Jackson!

Consider this: President Andrew Jackson's second term vice president was Martin VAN BUREN! I'm sure Hildago is some reference to Wyoming or cowboys and Indians, whatever. Hence, Cheyenne.

As to the closet case? I have no idea. But the out and talented actor/singer/dancer has to be Cheyenne Jackson.

Now, what projects is he currently working on?

Stephen said...

Ok, so I just checked Cheyenne Jackson's recent projects. It looks like Glee (he has done 3 episodes) is the most likely contender.

Therefore, I think the closeted actor must be: Cory Monteith, Matthew Morrison, Darren Criss, Overstreet, or that guy who plays Puck.

If I had to guess, I'm going with Darren Criss.

Although, I think there is an outside chance it's Monteith.

Nettie said...

@Stephen: It's not him. Cheyenne has 3 upcoming projects, but isn't working with anyone that can be considered "one of the world's biggest stars" that has "kiddie and teeny-bopper fans". As a matter of fact, the only names I recognized from his projects are Bill Pullman and Parker Posey.

Stephen said...

Nettie- what about the Glee connection? He was in 3 very recent episodes! You forgot to mention that in your response.

That fact would fit with ted's Glee related hints. Any of my above guesses for the closet case would be considered teeny-bopper idol status and world famous as a regular on Glee.

The Van Buren/jackson association is too strong to ignore. Cheyenne certainly fits the profile: broadway and television actor- great singer - great dancer, and nice guy.

He's doing another movie with Eric Mabius (whom I know is gay) but I think the Glee connection is much more likely.

Nettie said...

@Stephen: I doubt anyone on Glee could be considered one of the world's biggest stars. And I looked at the cast of The Green and there is no one on there that could be one of the world's biggest stars either.

And NPH also fits the Glee connection.

If you google Hildago, the movie about Frank Hopkins and his horse Hildago pops up. Daniel Radcliffe (who I think is the suitor) was in a play called Equus which in Latin means "horse".

As for the Jackson/Van Buren, you forgot to mention that Van Buren lost the election to a guy name William Henry HARRISon who appointed his friend DANIEL Webster as his Secretary of State. And Harrison's father Benjamin opposed the ratification of the Federal Constitution along with PATRICK Henry -- who is known for saying "Give me Liberty, or give me Death!"

LMS130 said...

I am on a roll with getting Ted to answer my BB questions about Hildago! Today is my 4th! Just a bit of bragging to start the morning ;) hehe.

So, he said my guess of Jesse Tyler Ferguson was fab, and didn't "not" him. Does that mean it IS him?? Not sure how to take his answer. JTF was at the Teen Choice awards, so any of those teeny-boppers could be his suitor. I know he also does Broadway, but I'm having trouble finding info about his current show.

In any case, Chase Crawford has been notted for the teeny-bopper closet case, and we are apparently looking for someone more famous than him.

LMS130 said...

Also, I've been asking Ted about Cheyenne Jackson and he hasn't answered any yet. I think he's a great guess.

Liz said...

It seemed like he revealed JTF as Hidalgo.

Stephen said...

I have a friend who used to produce the Teen Choice Awards. I don't think the 'row upon row of luxury star residences' is in their budget. That hint, in my humble opinion, is referring to the rows of bungalows for stars on several studio lots here in LA. So I really think Ted's glee allusions are apt.

Furthermore, this may sound a bit superficial, but it doesn't strike me as plausible that a seemingly straight young dude with hundreds of thousands of teeny bopper fans would throw themselves on Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

I think the fact that Ted has responded to 4 of your (@LMS) questions,including ones relating to JTF, but is completely silent when you ask about Cheyenne Jackson is further confirmation of the Jackson/Glee theory.

I think NPH is too obvious a guess. (@Nettie's quite historically inaccurate, but superbly entertaining, tea-leaf reading not withstanding.)

I'm quote convinced Hildago is Cheyenne Jackson and the surprise suitor is a glee cast member.

That's said, if it really is surprising, maybe it's not Darren Criss (although he he strikes my the most as the seducing type). I could see this as Matthew Morrison (who knows Cheyenne from his broadway days).

But maybe Cory Monteith is the least obvious but most likely possibility.

Thoughts?

LMS130 said...

I can get on board with Cheyenne Jackson as Hildago, but I just don't see the suitor also being from Glee. The impression that I got from the "Glee connection" comment was that either the actor or suitor is connected in a non-obvious way (guest star or other). If it were regular cast members it would be completely Glee-centric, and Ted usually makes those more obvious to capitalize on the Glee fans. Plus, most of the guys are either out of the closet or confirmed as straight (exception being Chord Overstreet). Just my opinion.

Cheyenne is also a regular on 30 Rock. I would imagine lots and lots of expensive trailers for all the actors on that show and they always have big guest stars too. I know they started shooting again for fall so maybe that's where we should look for Cheyenne.

Stephen said...

@LMS130 - I Like where you're going with this! I could definitely see a 30 Rock Connection.

I think, if we're safely going with Cheyenne (which I believe is a safe guess), then it will be a lot easier to narrow down the teeny-Bopper suitor.

Can anyone think of Anyone on 30 Rock that would fit the teeny- bopper profile?

It could also be a broadway show he recently worked on.... Or a charity event/concert.

Remember that the teeny-bopper aggressively pursued a hook-up, that takes a certain personality type. Someone aggressive with a lot of chutzpah.

Hmmm.....

LMS130 said...

For Cheyenne, the only 30 Rock closeted actors I could think of are James Franco (guest starred last season) and Alec Baldwin. Neither of them scream teeny-bopper favorite to me though.

Going back to the Jesse Tyler Ferguson clue today....still not sure if that was a reveal or what?? I noticed a tie in between "family jewels" and his show Modern Family.

Stephen said...

@LMS130 - I just can't see anyone throwing themselves on JTF.

I can't believe how much thought I've put into this BV (lol), but the more I think about it (and since I'm running with the supposition that the out actor is Cheyenne Jackson), I think it has to be him and one of the glee cast members... Nothing in Ted's hints suggest to me that it had to be otherwise. In fact, it makes much more sense if it was the case.

Ergo, after thoughtful consideration of motivation and proximity/excuse for the event to occur as well as age appropriateness, I think that the gay suitor is one of 2 possibilities: Cory Monteith or Matthew Morrison.

At first I thought Darren Criss, but I think it would be hard for anyone to rebuff his advances (personal crush, I guess) and also they dont have any scenes together. Matthew, however, has lots of scenes with Jackson (who plays the nemesis). There would be ample reasons to go over lines together ;-). I also think Morrison would have the most confidence to try something with Cheyenne, who is 36.

There is the possibility that it's Cory Monteith, who strikes me as quietly gay. He's closer in age to Jackson than any of the other cast (besides Matthew Morrison) and, although he is very cute, he's just awkward enough to decline an offer to hook-up. Furthermore, considering his general size, I'm sure his endowment would leave a person "impressed".

My new top two guesses for the closeted suitor are: Cory Monteith and Matthew Morrison. I'm leaning toward Morrison.

Thoughts?

LMS130 said...

Well that settles that..Cheyenne Jackson has just been notted.

Dear Ted:
It seems like Neil Patrick Harris is the popular guess for Hildago Van Buren, but I think Hildago is someone less obvious. My official guess is Cheyenne Jackson. How'd I do?
—Lisa

Dear Center Stage:
Out and proud? Check. Glee connection? Check. Hildago van Buren? Nope! Sorry, doll. Close but no cigar on Chey.

Seems like this is NPH all the way.

KaDixonLaw said...

@LMS130... Congrats! You ARE on a roll, while I'm still trying to get my first question answered.

Anyway, the fact that Ted failed to discount or even address the fact that NPH is the popular guess could be in biggest indicator the popular guess is correct. NPH as Hildago, for the win!

Stephen said...

@LMS130 and @Nettie - Wow! I stand corrected and humbled. I was wrong.

So where does this bombshell news leave us?

Let's try going at this from a different angle... I'm going to come up with a plausible gay suitor scenario based on a closeted glee character and see if you guys can tear it to shreds....

Rita said...

KaDixon & LMS - which one of you is Lisa? congrats on your post in the BBs: it finally answered the Cheyenne guess, and sort of confirmed NPH, in non-confirming Ted way.

Although it is still up for debate if NPH is Hildago, it has confirmed already his connections to the blind: out & proud, check. Glee connection, check.

Well done ladies!

Stephen said...

Here's a question: how can the secret gay suitor be both 'one of the world's most famous stars' and yet only have some 'hundreds of thousands' of 'teeny-bopper' fans? Secondly, if said closeted gay star came out, how can Ted think that he wouldn't have a career after? Neil Patrick Harris' career did just fine.

This leads me to believe that the closeted secret gay is a character on Glee who is seen every episode, but perhaps is just emerging as a star. Said person doesn't have the traction or existing career to fall back on, and apparently doesn't have a huge fan base, and yet he is enormously famous by sheer association.

Therefore, I propose the following guess for the two in question:

Closet Gay = Harry Shum Jr.

Hildago Van Buren = B.D. Wong

Shum fits all the criterion established (i.e. Ultra famous nascent career) and Wong is a well known, openly gay, multi-talented star of screen an stage.

Now get this: they are currently "co-stars" in a film that is presently shooting (White Frog).

In addition to that, they play members of the same family in the movie (this might explain the "family-jewels" quip in the BV)

Thoughts!?!?

PS I just cannot link anyone that fits the description in the BV to NPH. (on the off chance it does involve NPH the only probable person, I think, is Kal Penn)

Stephen said...

Evidence of the BD Wong / Harry Shum Jr. Connection:

http://m.justjared.com/pl/2011/07/24/harry-shum-jr-white-frog-bd-wong/

Stephen said...

Another interesting tidbit:

BD Wong's ex long-term partner of 16 years has the last name Jackson.

Is it a stretch to suggest that in fact Van Buren is a reference to President Andrew Jackson's former partner (vice-president)?

Wong like Van Buren was partnered with a Jackson.

Nettie said...

@LMS130: Thanks for clearing that up.

NPH was only on one episode of Glee a year ago, so that pretty much eliminates anyone from Glee for being the suitor. The movie The Smurfs did not have any big name (male) stars other than Alan Cummings and Tim Gunn -- and they are openly gay.

The only person from the movie The Muppets that stand out is Sterling Knight, but I wouldn't exactly call him a one of the world's biggest stars considering the biggest thing he has done was 17 again and Sunny with a Chance/So Random. And filming for The Muppets started in Oct/Nov 2010 and was done in Jan 2011, so I wouldn't call The Muppets something NPH "recently signed up for". And since he was not one of the major stars (just a cameo), he was probably done sooner than January.

Looking at the musical Company, the only guy that I recognized was Steven Colbert and I doubt most of his fans are kiddie and teeny-boppers.

At the Tony Awards, the only guy that seems to fit as the suitor is still Daniel Radcliffe. He has "kiddie and teeny-bopper fans" he's "one of the world's biggest stars" and there are some clues that reference his shows Equus (the name Hildago) and H2S (never working again the say way he was accustomed).

@Stephen: The only problem with BD Wong as Hildago is the fact there is no Glee connection without adding the guy you think is the suitor. I think Hildago has a Glee connection without anyone involved.

Rita said...

Nettie - Still agree that Hildago is NPH. Better fits the description, better fit with the Ted hints, and rings more with the description of the blind as a whole.

As for the heartthrob with hundreds of thousands of teeny-bopper fans, it could anyone. However, I'm still leaning towards someone who already has a moniker.

It helps that a few got eliminated. Joe Jonas got eliminated, but what about his younger brother. You know the one who dated Me-Me Dallas?

Stephen said...

@Rita and @Nettie: Ted states that the closeted suitor has "hundred's of thousands" of teeny-bopper fans. If it was anyone really famous (i.e. DanRad) the number should be in the millions.... Certainly not the thousands.

I think that clue must mean that the suitor is very famous but doesn't have much of a fan base. If that's the case, then pretty much every guess that's been made should be eliminated, because every possible suitor mentioned has a fan base in the millions.

That thought process led to Harry Shum and BD Wong.

The suitor had to be world famous, but have a relatively small fan base. I felt that they also had to have a glee connection. That narrows the options considerably.

When you think about it, it makes a lot of sense. And besides, NPH is too obvious for Hildago.

(btw, I don't thin Hildago is a horse reference. The horse is named Hidalgo. I think Ted is trying to throw us off the trail. It's a red herring.)

Nettie said...

@Rita: He's too young. Ted said the suitor was slightly older than Taylor L (19) and Joe Jonas (21 when the BV was created). Nick is 18. Age wise, the only people who could fit as the suitor is still Daniel who is 22 years old (3 years older than Taylor, 23 days older than Joe) or Sterling Knight who is 22 as well. But Sterling isn't exactly one of the biggest world wide stars.

@Stephen: If Ted would have said millions of fans, he would have given it away -- especially since he already eliminated most of the Twilight guys and Zac Efron -- all who have millions of fans. Wouldn't it have been better to eliminate those with the hundreds of thousands of fans instead?

And since Ted said the suitor is slightly older than Taylor and Joe, Harry doesn't fit. He is 29 -- 10 years older than Taylor L and 7 years older than Joe. The age gap is too big.

Rita said...

Stephen - I don't find Shum and Wong are what is described in the blind 'one of the world's biggest stars'.

Heck, they're not even on my radar. And no worries, I keep on reminding people that it is HiLdago, not HidaLgo. I thinks the L mis-placement speaks of Broadway, some sort of female impersonator, not the Shakespearean kind (Shakespeare's HidaLgo).

Rita said...

Nettie - thanks for the reminder. The younger Jonas always looks more mature and together then the other one.

So if Ted through process of elimination has set the suitor's age at around 23-25 (is that fair?), and assuming that there's a higher chance that the suitor has already a BV moniker... How about the other douche from Twilight, you know KLutz guy. Am pretty sure he's packing. And he has been known to never miss an opportunity and show his face. On any carpet... How old is Ian Somerhalder again?

Tara said...

Love this @Rita, can't believe you remember my fondness for the dude:)

---->"However, I can get on the Somerhalder boat, always thought he likes both genders equally, without distinction. Just don't let Tara know, she goes crazy for Somerhalder's blue eyes!"

@LMS130 I kind of like the JTF theory, though it is hard to picture this being anyone but NPH.

How y'all doing? It's been a while....

Tara said...

Kellan works for the proposition-er, especially if you consider the Immortal movie that is coming out soon; also starring openly gay Luke Evans. Not saying Hildago is not NPH, but Luke could be a convenient possibility if considering Lutz as the suitor.

Nettie said...

@Rita: Ian is 32 so he's out. Kellan Lutz is 26 so he's also out. Plus I didn't see anything he and Neil attended at the same time.

@Tara:I cannot see JTF either. And the last time he was on stage was Summer 2010 and he has no upcoming films. Btw, the Luke and Kellan is a great guess (I was about to change my guess to them) but there is no Glee connection.

Stephen said...

@Nettie - I think, if Ted had meant millions if fans, he would have said millions. The fact that he kept the fan base under a million eliminates all of the suggestions I have seen.

Why does everyone assume that the answer has to be on "their radar" of maybe 2 dozens uber famous folks?

Secondly, @Nettie, why have you applied an age cap for the suitor? Ted, said think a "little"older.... There are no specific ages mentioned at all.

@everyone - I think you're barking up the wrong tree with household names.... Every guess I've heard mentioned (except for Harry Shum) have Millions of fans... Not thousands.

This is an important clue that shouldn't be ignored.

@Nettie - this clue applies an actual quantifiable cap on the star's popularity. Don't you think it's better to follow the clues and facts rather than what you hope the answer is?

Rita said...

Tara - Welcome back! Yeah, it's true I do tread carefully when discussing Ian S., I remember your deception at the possibility of being at least bi - But isn't everyone in Hollywood at least bi-sexual? Or was that tri-sexual? I tend to forget...

As for this one, must hit Ted for a definitive answer on the seducer. It definitely is creating guesses all over the board. Some of these people are absolutely new to me. But then again, I'm the one who thinks NPH is irresistible, therefore, he must get propositioned all the time. from both genders... I wouldn't mind the Barney love either!

LMS130 said...

Hey all! I'm Lisa in the BBs or sometimes LisaMarie. I don't know why Ted's been answering all my Qs about Hildago but i love it!

I am leaning 70% NPH, 30% JTF. I'm also thinking that the teeny-bopper comments could have to do with the fact that it happened at the Teen Choice awards.

JTF was at the Teen Choice awards with Ian Sommerholder which seems like a possible matchup. Also, there's rumors that Jason Derulo is gay, and he was a performer that night. So he would have a dressing room for sure. Maybe something there?

As for NPH at the Tonys, the only other person struck me was Matthew Broderck. Its been pretty reliably stated that he's gay, but not sure if it he would count for having teeny bopper fans.

I'll be without a computer all weekend so I'll catch up with you on Monday.

Miss Faye said...

Still think NPH is the top choice for Hildago unless something disproves it. And I don't think Ted was confirming it was Jesse Tyler Ferguson when he said the guess was "fab". I think he was just saying that it was a good guess because it fits many of the clues in the same way that Cheyenne Jackson was a fab guess. But still not the answer. Generally, when you get the answer correct Ted stays largely silent. Meaning he doesn't even acknowledge that person in your question. In this way, he draws even more attention to that person and people notice that no matter how hard you guess that person there's never a response.

Actually, I think an even better to confirm this is for all of us to ask if Hildago is Neil Patrick Harris. He is by far, the top guess here, on BG and on the E!Online forum. If Ted never responds to this guess, it's because it's definitely him.

Miss Faye said...

Also, note that whenever there's a popular guess that's wrong, Ted generally "Not's" them quickly most within the next few days because he wants to get rid of the idea that those other people are correct. Remember Awful Truth wants you to know the correct answer, especially when the gossip is really juicy. They just don't want to be sued.

Nettie said...

Here's something that might point to NPH being HVB:

There's a school called Van Buren Middle School located in Albuquerque, NM -- same place NPH was born.

@LMS130: Jason Derulo is too young.

Tara said...

Rita--I do have a hard time believing he is completely gay, but I would definitely entertain the bi-theory. I am a sucker for the brown hair/blue eyed dudes, what can I say? Matt Bomer too, though I have come to terms with the fact that he is gay;)

Rita said...

Great find Nettie! Ted has confirmed not long ago that a moniker is absolutely in relation to the star, not some random name.

Tara - never been on the Bomer train, sorry! But I do love the brown hair/blue eyes as well, only the classic ones: James Caviezel, Dylan McDermott... You know, those leave-you-breathless dudes that never really made it. Lately, I'm finding Sookie's Bihhhl quite sexy, too bad he's on the short side.

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
I'm enjoying the Hildago Van Buren Vice quite a bit—it reminds me of my favorite board game, Clue. So how's my detective work? I think it's Jesse Tyler

Ferguson, seduced by Chace Crawford, at the Teen Choice Awards! How did I do?
—Lisa

Dear Clued In:
Your detective work is good, Sherlock, but you have a bit more sniffing around to do. Jesse is a fab guess for Hildy himself, but you're a bit colder on his

horny (and "straight" pal). Think more famous.

Dear Ted:
You said Hildago Van Buren was shocked to learn that his suitor was interested in men. What I'd like to know is: Were you shocked? Was this so far under the

radar that even those of you in-the-know didn't see it coming? I'm wondering if this person earned a B.V. moniker for guy-lovin' behavior or if it was

something else in his Vicey past.
—Lisa

Dear Bang the Buren:
I was not shocked at all.

Dear Ted:
This is the first time I agree with you 100 percent. The Eric-Sookie and the Jessica-Hoyt hookups, I'm all for it. On a different note, regarding Hildago Van

Buren, a ludicrous, but funny thought occurred to me: What if Hildago was Arnold Schwarzenegger and the whole maid fiasco was part an elaborate cover-up to

hide the real reason why Maria is divorcing him: his homosexuality. He was quite the social climber, which sometimes goes hand-in-hand with salami climbing.
—L.L.

Dear Outside the Box:
That's a very, uh, interesting theory, L.L., but the Governator is not our latest Vicer. Thanks for the laugh though!

Dear Ted:
For some reason, the first person I thought of when I heard about Hildago Van Buren was Hugh Jackman, but I couldn't find any recent megaproductions that he

is starring in. Has he ever been a Blind Vice before? He's always seemed a bit Vicey to me.
—Kloie

Dear Onto Something:
You are so close, as Hugh and Hildago are very good friends, just not the same person! And, baby, you bet Hugh's got a nice, juicy Vice in his closet,

wouldn't you like to know what it is!

Dear Ted:
Just wondering if your joke about a restraining order from Jake Gyllenhaal was really a jab or a clue? Is Jakey one of the Blind Vicers? Perhaps the Blind

Vicer with Hildago Van Buren? Also, Cruella St. Shackles...Is it Fergie? I'm curious!

Dear Out of the Loop:
Where the heck have you been, T? Of course Jakey-poo is a Blind Vicer—he's in the friggin' Hall of Fame, too! But he is not Hildago or Hildy's hump-happy

friend. And Cruella is not Ferg, either, but better guess on that one. Tho, the thought of Cruella in any sort of Latex cat suit makes me want to barf.

Dear Ted:
It seems like Neil Patrick Harris is the popular guess for Hildago Van Buren, but I think Hildago is someone less obvious. My official guess is Cheyenne

Jackson. How'd I do?

Dear Center Stage:
Out and proud? Check. Glee connection? Check. Hildago van Buren? Nope! Sorry, doll. Close but no cigar on Chey."

I just had a thought -- what if the "hundreds of thousands of fans" refers to Facebook fans? I checked Daniel Radcliffe and he has about 300,000 and some which fits. Sure, his actual fan base may be much larger, but that's how many "fans" he has.

Michelle said...

I was really into the Cheyenne Jackson guess until Ted eliminated him but I like NPH too.

I am not really feeling the DanRad guess for the suitor. He seems a little too young based on what Ted said about Taylor Lautner and Joe Jonas but also, he just doesn't seem that calculated in his career choices...know what I mean? On stage nudity at such a young age? And have you seen or read Equus? It's some dark, weird stuff. And even his turn on Broadway and his being so involved in the gay community...I don't know, as I'm typing I'm reminded of James Franco who is also unconventional and seems like he wouldn't hide his sexuality so, who knows.... Still, DanRad, when compared to somebody more image conscious like say, Taylor Lautner doesn't strike me as someone who would hide being gay for the sake of his career. I sent Ted an email asking if the mystery suitor has a BV and if it is related to being in the closet or something unrelated. I also asked if Hildago has a man at home and that's why he didn't follow through with the mystery man. I'm hoping Ted might be inclined to give us some clues as to Hildago's family situation but He NEVER answers me so we'll see. :)

Wow, some punctuation would help..but hopefully you all understand what I am trying to say! :)

Big update today! Hildago's suitor has been given a moniker in today's BV article...Carson Ampi-Dickorous. Described as a sex-addict, possibly on the down slope of his career but recently re-entered fame game, trying to get into TV projects by any means necessary (namely casting couch) and has young fans. AIAs are 40s-50s.

This changes my whole thinking about who we are looking for. I think Carson is someone older who is associated with a kid/teen project in some way. Matthew Broderick and Peter Faccinelli come to mind. Or David Duchovny maybe since he's a known sex addict.

LMS130 said...

Hmmm...the next article posted was about Ryan Murphy. I had already been considering him for the producer Carson wanted to use and now I think it even more. Someone in the comments said John Stamos for Carson??? He got a boost from Glee/Ryan Murphy and is big on Broadway. Also has young fans from his Full House days. Interesting guess.

Vivi said...

David Duchovny has fans from the X-Files and is a sex addict but I don't think is him...

Maybe someone we don't know is a sex addict... This new blind made me think about someone who is trying a comeback maybe? Someone from an old famous tv show...

Rita said...

Well, it definitely isn't Daniel Radcliffe, that's for sure. After reading the new blind, am liking your guess LMS for Stamos. He sure fits with the AIAs' age profile.

As for David Duchovny, he still is on that show Californication - I think they are on their last season - so he hasn't been desperate for work in the past 5 years or so. Had also been nominated for an Emmy, and a Golden Globe for his role.

From the description of the new blind, it sounds as he's not married... Must confirm at least marital status with Ted.

LMS130 said...

Sorry for the multiple posts...I have one more thing to add in support of Ryan Murphy as the TV producer after reading this quote:

"One of the hottest guys in TV (who's largely responsible for Carson's recent re-entry into the fame game) is working on some new projects. And Mr. Ampi-Dickorous has made it very plain to his employer just how far he'd be willing to go for a chance at that new gig."


There's been a big buzz over RM's new show American Horror story. It's even linked in that article about RM. Sounds like this is the show in question and Carson wants a role on it (guest star I would assume since its already been cast). I've already mentioned John Stamos but also maybe Chord Overstreet? He got his start on Glee and is currently unemployed. He might be a better for teeny-bopper fans and the comment about keeping the level of fame hes grown accustomed too.

LMS130 said...

NPH and Chord Overstreet with both at the Grammys. Haven't found a link between HPH and John Stamos yet.

Fifth Year said...

Was just coming over here to say "what about John Stamos"? Same age as the AIAs and full-house connection is big. While I can see the appeal with the Chord Overstreet guess, "re-entry into the fame game" points to me at someone who has had a longer hiatus than a few months.

Also, John Stamos has built his persona on being a straight sex-symbol and I can definitely see how if he came out for the other team, this may affect his work (not that hes the only one...).

The only spanner is the lack of connection between NPH and Stamos...

Vivi said...

wow... I like the John Stamos guess...
Maybe that is why his marriage with Rebecca ended so suddenly... it was just fake!
and it fits my feeling of an old tv show...
Let me see if I can find something about a Stamos-Jackman friendship...

LMS130 said...

Oooh, i just found something verrrry interesting. If John Stamos is Carson, then that fulfills the Glee connection leaving Hildago to potentially be someone other than NPH. Check this out...

John Stamos was in the Hollywood Bowl performance of Hairspray, August 5-7. Lots of famous cast members including Corbin Bleu, Drew Carey, Nick Jonas, Michael McDonald, AND Harvey Fierstein. Harvey just happens to be Ted's ex-boyfriend!! Harvey is a Broadway vet and can definitely sing and he dances in Hairspray. What if John Stamos tried to seduce Harvey at the Hollywood Bowl and now is trying to seduce Ryan Murphy. Ted would surely know about it since he's got a connection to Harvey.

I know it's kinda out of left feild but I'm liking it.

Here's info about the Hollywood Bowl if you are curious. I never heard of it before this but it sounds like a bigl deal.

LMS-I love the Harvey guess because it would make sense with how familar Ted seems with Hildago. When I read the blind there is a sense that Ted got this info from Hildago himself.

I think John Stamos fits a lot but I'm wondering about the teeny bopper fan base...? Is that really where his biggest draw is? Most teeny boppers weren't even born during his squeaky clean years on Full House playing Uncle Jesse although, I suppose we could be talking about teeny boppers that watch Glee?? Glee has never shied away from the gay thing so it certainly would not hurt his chances of a job there...Just not sure about the John Stamos guess.

Miss Faye said...

John Stamos seems to make the most sense so far, especially since it has to be someone who recently "re-entered" into fame like Stamos apparently did with his appearance on Glee which also gives the Glee connection.

Again, Ted immediately gives another huge clue right after posting the BV by writing up an article on Ryan Murphy who is most likely the producer from the blind (I've noticed this pattern with Ted, anyone else? It's like he writes a BV and then immediately gives you the answer lol. Not complaining.)

Rita said...

LMS - But does Harvey fit the Hildago description? A bigger clue also is in one of the BB answers: When asked if Hugh Jackman is Hildago, Ted said that Hugh and Hildago are VERY GOOD friends. Would that prove or disprove that Harvey is Hildago? Is he friends with Jackman?

I thought Neil Patrick Harris is very good friends with Jackman. They have a ton of respect for each other, and have hosted together.

LMS130 said...

I don't know if Harvey is friends with Hugh. He's a staple in the Broadway scene so I imagine they at least know eachother. I'll have to look around and see if there's anything that makes it seem like they are more than aquaintences.

I reread the Hildago description and it doesn't indicate what he looks like or if he's considered hot. Harvey isn't the most attractive man (no offense) so I was looking to see if that would eliminate him. The comment saying he never has the chance to check out other men's packages makes me think maybe this type of stuff doesn't happen to him often? Someone like NPH might get hit on an awful lot.

@Miss Faye - I noticed that same pattern too! It's like Ted's personal way of outing someone to those of us that are paying attention. I love it!

Michele said...

First time poster here so be kind :)

I'm wondering if the Glee connection, but not the way we are thinking simply refers to Ryan Murphy and the new blind that Ted posted today. If Ryan Murphy is indeed the employer referred to in the Carson Ampi-Dickorous BV, isn't that enough for a Glee connection? Maybe neither Hildago nor Carson actually appeared on Glee -- they just deal with Ryan Murphy in another way.

It may just be that I am having a hard time picturing NPH, who is by all accounts a happily committed man, feeling another man's package. To me that would be cheating and I don't see someone who is committed, happily announcing their engagement, and a recent father, doing that. I know if my life partner told me he/she felt another person's goods, I would certainly be more than upset. Then again, this is Hollywood.

andiecandie said...

I do love the John Stamos guess mainly because I 100% agree he is gay (my aunt said he hit on one of he gay friends at a bar in Chicago once!) but if Ted is playing by his rules of only giving one name to each person John Stamos has been confirmed having a BV on 12/1/09 & again on 5/12/10.
