Blind Vice: Double Devious Doings!

New from Ted today... kickin' it old school with two random Vices in one -


Blind Vice: Double Devious Doings!

Oh, what a tangled website we weave, when at first we practice to deceive. That's what one of those crusty writer guys said, right?
OK, maybe not exactly, but conniving, breasty Harriet Talons sure had that in mind when she backstabbed so many people on her current hit show, her own network's New York website is currently weighing whether or not to write a scathing exposĂ© on Harriet's behind-the-scenes shenanigans—they're that damn impressive.
Back in Hollywood, but equally as stealth—and to far more sexy results—would be an Oscar-nominated star's party behavior. Want to hear what Freddie Friction picked up along with his cocktail?
A date!
And it's weird on so many levels: Just like Harriet, who tells the world constantly (mostly in women's magazines) how down-to-earth and shy and humble she is, Jeremy's been busy spinning a similar ersatz media presence. For instance, he often talks about how "straight" he is. Like, a lot.
Isn't it fascinating how very unlike Crescent Cumquat and Topher Hairy-Tuchus—who often depend on extravagant online shenanigans to hook up with guys they fancy—Freddie is. He just asked a guy home at a recent N.Y. party! Right in front of everybody!
And even though the party dude who Freddie asked back to his place was completely shocked, he did manage to say yes, in case you were wondering.
Yeah, maybe it was kinda stupid for Freddie (who we hear is a tad on the old-fashioned side) to let this all go down in the open, but hey, makes more sense than Craigslist, huh? Less of a trail…
I think Freddie's gonna be a crafty one, just like Harriet. In fact, I'm sure of it!
AND IT AIN'T: Felicity Huffman and Chord Overstreet, Joan Rivers and Zac Efron, Betty White and Robert Pattinson

Please use the label below for the links to our previous Harriet Talons BVs, including a full list of who has been eliminated.

Top suspect for Harriet Talons:  Teri Hatcher
Top suspect for Freddie Friction: Jeremy Renner

Uh... Jeremy? Wasn´t it Freddie? Did the real first name slip?? Are we talking about Jeremy Renner?

luckylass said...

That is exactly what I thought!

Cee said...

ummmm im thinking JEREMY was a freudian slip lol...Jeremy Renner, no?

Mena said...

Oh of course it's Jeremy Renner. The clues fit him and Ted slipped up (albeit on purpose I suspect).

Felicitas said...

They've changed it! I´ve just re-checked the blind and they've changed "Jeremy" to "Freddie"

Mena said...

I doubt Harriet Talons is Lea Michele. I think Ted is giving us clues that Harriet Talons is older than Freddie by is AIAs.

sashie said...

Wow even without the slip-up, this one is pretty obvious! Being Oscar nominated narrows it down a ton, and the way he says

sashie said...

"gonna be a crafty one" makes it sound like he's an up-and-comer, just like Renner.

Gretchen said...

If this is mr. Renner, it's not surprising. Of course he's not "out" but it's damn well know. Which is sad for us ladies cos he's sweet, talented, and "old fashioned." :)

blurry vice said...

Wow, I'm surprised I was able to get it copied and pasted and on here before they changed it from Jeremy to Eddie. I'm keeping my version as it is.

Jeremy Renner I guess!

Angela said...

Ted said yesterday that Harriet Talons is a Golden Globe WINNER. That means that it is definitely NOT Lea Michele.

He also implied that it's someone who previously had a Blind Vice that was revealed.

I think it's got to be Teri Hatcher.

Angela said...

Also HARRIet Talons/TERI Hatcher, rhyme-ish. And HT/TH initials.

Effie said...

Freddie Friction is obviously Jeremy Renner.
Harriet Talons is obviously NOT Lea Michele.

Rita said...

Harriet Talons is breasty too... So can't be Teri Hatcher either... Or is she? can't remember if she is breasty.

And yeah @Blurry nice going! Caught the slip before the change, hihi.

How much do you want to bet that tomorrow they'll be a non-confirmation that Freddie Friction is not Jeremy Renner?

heather_p said...

I wouldn't consider Teri Hatcher that "breasty" but when she was a guest star on Seinfeld years ago, the whole episode was about her boobs. Her last line was "they're real and they're spectacular" so Ted could be remembering that.

PrincessTiff said...

It is impossible for Lea to be Harriet.

It seems pretty clear that Freddie is Jeremy Renner from the name-slip of Ted's. But, it does break my heart because I totally have a crush

Dr.DuckyDuck said...

One of the previous clues about HT was that she wasn't curvy. So how can someone be both breasty and noncurvy? By being Teri Hatcher, known for her breasts on Seinfeld and also known for being scary skinny on Desperate Housewives.

I'm with everyone else-- HT may not be Terri Hatcher, but she makes more sense than Lea Michelle.

Also, I feel like the "jeremy" typo was too much of an outing, and I thought Ted didn't out people. I love blind gossip, but when it's too obvious it makes me sad. Or bored.

FrenchGirl said...

Teri H isn't breasty in my opinion but i don't know because if harriet is Teri Hatcher,every one yet knows she's bitchy and a pain

Freddie=Jeremy Renner :he lives with his business associate (the guy who kept Renner's tiny dog when the dog is dead recently)

Michelle said...

Can we please take Lea Michele off as top suspect, she SO isn't

FrenchGirl said...

and the slip-up on Freddy ("Jeremy") is weird and nasty because the blind items are only rumors (sometimes true but also often totally or partly false)

Michelle said...

All we have to do is to get Ted to admit that Jeremy's a vicer now cause he said he wasn't back in december so it really narrows it down considering most of the BVs this year have been repeats or women

Rita said...

@heather_p, you are so right!!! I forgot about they're real and they're fabulous! Thank you for reminding me.
Sold on Terri being Harriett!

That Seinfeld episode is such a classic!!

"Breasty" + Golden Globe winner + previously revealed moniker has to be Teri Hatcher. Lea Michelle only fits the revealed BV clue.

Although it was bummer to have Jeremy Renner accidentally(?) outed, I was excited to finally see the rumored slip-up on this site. I didn't read the blind on the AT site until after the name had been changed.

Violet451 said...

Teri Hatcher for Harriet Talons! Still the description of the show seems off to me since it's ending, right? So why would anyone be worried about being killed off...? Still not getting that part.

As for breasty? YES, Teri Hatcher was absolutely known in the 90s for her boobs. "They're real and they're spectacular". They even had Elaine trying to feel her up in the sauna to test if they were real! That episode is a classic and a lot of people remember Teri for it.

I couldn't believe it when I saw the name Jeremy in the blind? WOW! Ted is really slipping!!

hordac said...

I vote for Teri Hatcher for HT. I just read somewhere that she was excluded from a cast gift to the DH crew. The article went on to say that Teri always kept herself separate from the rest of the cast, and Teri herself acknowledges difficulties between them over the years.

medusa said...

My issue with Teri Hatcher for this is that it was already announced that this was the last season of Desperate Housewives back in August 2011. So why would there be blinds in March or April 2012 that people wanted her fired, or that she was worried about job security? By mid April, the last episode was probably already finished, or probably close. This sounds a lot more like a show that is still going to be on next season (with or without Harriet Talons.)

BlahBlahBlah said...

when the first HT blind was written they were mid filming this series of DH. It was well publicised that at least one major character would die mid series...I think Ted is playing on this as if he said final series etc its would be obvious its one of the four housewives...the second blind was after the death of Mike and when they were still filming, hence Teds comment about job security - she still has her job as it wasnt her that was offed

Effie said...

I agree, it would've been too obvious if Ted had written that the show was in its final season.

Plus, there are only so many people who are on a prime time drama, and have won a Golden Globe, and have no curves LOL. It's Teri.

medusa said...

The last blind was in mid April. Just seems silly for her to care that much about being killed off, if they were only filming one or two more episodes. "Job security" for two episodes seems a little ridiculous - she'd still be on contract for the rest of them, so would get paid.

I'm not saying Ted would say directly it was the "final season" but I think it's a stretch to read any of the previous blinds and not think there was more riding on this actress's behavior than a handful of episodes.

KaDixonLaw said...

Okay, but how do you justify Ted's hint re: a previously revealed blind? Look at the List of Reveals--it's a very short one.

The only two applicable stars that I see are Teri Hatcher and Lea Michelle and there are far more reasons why this can't be Lea (e.g. not a Golden Globe winner).

Process of elimination... Teri Hatcher.

JoliBri said...

First time poster.

Could it be that it's not an individual globe? Glee has won 2 times so maybe that qualifies as a win for Michele?

Stacey said...

Agree with the other ladies. Harriet Talons HT is Teri Hatcher TH. She's a golden globe winner that doesn't get along with her cast. She's a brunette. She's neighbors with George Clooney and has always wanted to date him, per the first Harriet Talons blind. Google George Clooney Teri Hatcher neighbors.

Effie said...

"Dear Ted:
What do you make of the Desperate Housewives luggage-gate? Any recent Blind Vice activity from the ladies that you've caught wind of? Pretty please as the finale just aired? Thanks!
—C

Dear Wisteria Woes:
Short answers in the order you asked: Not surprised…at all. Yes, very recently."

Well this seals the deal for me.

Michelle said...

I agree BB today confirms it, but then I call this blind a total waste of time, b/c it is now old news the show is over. Who cares if she was killed off in the last couple episodes, this would have been a lot juicier if it came out a few years ago

Rita said...

Don't remember which, but Terri H. has signed a few weeks ago a new deal to appear on a show, for at least 4 episodes. Primetime show, have to look it up again.

medusa said...

As much as I think it's silly to write something that sounds like she's really worried about her future on the show (when the show is about over anyway), the George Clooney/neighbor link clinches it for me.

Heather said...

I am an everyday reader of Ted and of this site, but I have only posted a few times. I couldnt resist posting this!

From the mail on May 16th:

Dear Ted:
Can you clear a couple things up for me? There seems to be a belief that just because Lea Michele and Dianna Agron don't hang out as much that they are no longer friends, they may not be BFFs, but didn't you say they are friends? Also, how's Harriet Talons? Does she still have a job, or is her run on her series kaput? Love you much! And hurray for someone being sane (i.e. Obama for marriage equality)
—M

Dear Faberry Fallout:
Let's put it like this, M: Lea and Dianna's onscreen and behind-the-scenes relationships have had a sort of inverse relation. As Rachel and Quinn had you rooting for Faberry (and breaking websites in the process), their offscreen former BFF-ship has cooled. They're not catfighting, but they're certainly not braiding each other's hair either. As for Harriet, she hasn't been fired.

This makes me believe it is Terri even more! Ted's answer about her "not being fired" totally fits the puzzle because Ted didnt answer the part about if her series was over. Terri's character wasnt killed off, therefore not fired from the series. She was able to exit the series with her dignity like the other ladies. Harriot=Terri!

FrenchGirl said...

i believed Hatcher dated Clooney briefly in 2006 http://www.popsugar.com/Did-George-Break-Teris-Heart-5999

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
First time writing in and most likely the last (I'm much the observer type when it comes to this stuff. That said, I absolutely love the column and your snark)! Will you do me a favor and please tell me Lea Michele is not Harriet Talons? That said, has she gotten herself another moniker? Love to you and your pups! You've inspired my fiancé and I to adopt our next dog!
—Mumbles

Dear Don't Get It:
Darling, congrats on your humane decisions regarding the pooches (it really is the only way until this country stops euthanizing—a fancy word for killing—millions of helpless dogs and cats every year), but why is this also your last time writing in? Are we already fighting? No Lea clues until you tell me what's up!

Dear Ted:
I came across Bravo's Inside the Actor's Studio a few days ago and watched because James Lipton was interviewing the cast of Mad Men. The happy chatting came to a halt every time Christina Hendricks opened her mouth. Could she be Harriet Talons? If looks could kill…
—Weaver

Dear Mad Women:
Hardly. Harriet wishes she had Ms. Hendrick's body type—ya know, one that leaves men drooling and everyone talking. As far as cast relations go, Christina is a completely different story."

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
Question about Freddie Friction: Has he committed to starring in numerous franchises? Also, whenever I'm asked who I would love to have dinner with, dead or alive, I always say Andy Warhol, Michael Jackson, and you. Would you come? Love you much, Ted!
—Nic

Dear Dinner for Two:
In response to your BV question—Freddie's not quite the franchise king, but he does stick to a certain genre in his work. And as for dinner? Of course I would come, doll! I'm honored you would ask—thanks for the love!"

blurry vice said...

Well, we can have Teri Hatcher as top suspect. She has also been a revealed BV so she fits (only two women do really). But in the original Harriet BV I could have sworn Ted said that HArriet's show would have another season next year. And they have been done filming for a while.

blurry vice said...

I'm standing by the fact that we have both Lea Michele and Teri Hatcher as top suspects. They are really the only two that it can be, considering they have both been revealed BVs as Ted says and both on TV. However, Desperate Housewives is over and has been finished filming for some time now.

Ella Bee said...

@Blurry I would have to agree, except Ted clarified on 5/10 in the Morning Mail that HT was a golden globe winner, whereas Lea is only a nominee. Other than that, totally fits. I didn't see this in any HT threads, so forgive me if I am double posting a clue you already posted.

Dear Ted:
A while back you stated that while Madeline Stowe was not Harriet Talons, they were both Golden Globes babes. Pretty please, can you clarify whether you meant nominated or winners? That makes a huge difference in my BV sleuthing.

Lots of love,
—Tara

Dear Love Ya Back:
Winners.

Rita said...

There is also the "breasty" part that doesn't fit Lea.

No matter how hard she works her angles, or how low her dresses are cut, girl has no breasts whatsoever.

sistah2 said...

Yes, I thought Lea could be eliminated based on the last two clues pointed out by Rita and Ella Bee...

brooke99infiniti said...

The Kanye AIA is throwing me, but when I think of Mark Wahlberg, Matt Mc, and Vin Diesel I automatically think Paul Walker, who is super buff. Anyone have a clue what he's been up to lately? Think back to when movies like Fear, Cruel Intention, Dazed and Confused ect. were making the rounds b/c Mark and Matt became popular around the same time so I'm thinking it is possible that it is someone else that became popular about that time and Paul Walker did. The only thing is that the Kanye thing is throwing me. Then again though, Vin Diesel also sort of fits maybe even better! However, Jude Law, who I adore by the way, is not at all what I would call beefy! He appears tall and lanky. Here's something else I thought I would throw out Mark W was a rapper turned actor and Kanye is a rapper, so could this be someone that raps and acts? I know that would not apply to Matt Mc. but there could be another connection to him. Any ideas? I wish we had more to go on, there are a lot of possibilities let's start throwing out all the super muscular guy celebs in their mid to late thirties up to mid fourties (this could be anyone over thirty really b/c thirty isn't that young in Hwood at the same time though 40-50 year olds still get parts and it's easier for older men than it is for older women, so the STILL comment doesn't help except to know that he's not super young and probably been in Hwood for awhile) and see who we come up with. BTW I'm not aware who all has already been a Blind so if I add a name of someone that it can't possibly be then feel free to correct me!

Guesses So far that could fit (some may be too young or another vice star IDK just names of muscular guys I'm throwing out):
Vin Diesel
Paul Walker
Shemar Moore
Daniel Craig
The Rock
Gerard Butler
Henry Cavill
Orlando Bloom
Nick Lachey
what about MCsteamy? Eric Dane
LL Cool J
Channing Tatum
Hugh Jackman
Kellan Lutz

brooke99infiniti said...

Oops sorry sisters posted the above in the wrong blind section and can't figure out how to delete it, feel free to delete the above for me if you want.

Cee said...

Dear Ted:
Is Harriet Talons' TV show still on the air or coming back for the 2012 fall season? I thought that was one of the reasons she would not be fired because she is a major player on the show. I am hoping it's not Stana Katic. My "guard cat" Antigone says hello!
—Jenny

Dear Talon-ented TV Vet:
All I'm saying is that Harriet should be far more worried about her future career than her current stint on the boob tube if you catch my drift. Oh, and it's not Stana Katic.

i think he cant come out and say the show is no longer on because it would be too obvious...

and as for Freddie he said he sticks to a certain genre...Jeremy Renner is ALWAYS in action movies...S.W.A.T, The Avengers, MI: Ghost Protocol...all action flicks!!!

EastCoasting said...

What about Madeline Stowe? (SPOILER ALERT) It seems that she may have met her end, while her show hasn't...

Michelle said...

Madeline Stowe was notted

Is Harriet Talons possibly Kate Walsh?
—Katen

Dear
While Private Practice may be losing some docs in truly dramatic fashion (though not as scandalous as its Grey's Anatomy peers, that's for sure), our dear Addison is not the booted baddie. Good guess, babe, you're on the right track.

Dear Ted:
I'm excited you'd accept my dinner invite! Yay! Has Harriet Talons ever spoken about meeting Toothy Tile in the press? Thanks!
—Nic

Dear Blabbermouth:
What a very specific question, Nic! I'm curious who you think each Vice moniker belongs to. But either way the answer is no. If Harriet and T2 have even met it was only for a second at some industry event."

shasta @ bloggingwithmittens said...

I know everyone is keen on Teri Hatcher for Harriet Talons but I'm willing to believe it's actually Mary-Louise Parker. Lots of details fit, and the next season of Weeds is just about to air, though the cliffhanger from last season makes it seem like her character might have been killed.

Steph79 said...

Okay, think about this for FF. The AIA have a lot to do with who it is, as well. There is literally zero connection between those 3 guys and Jeremy Renner. Also, Jeremy Renner doesn't talk about being straight all the time. He said it once, in one interview. It just happened to blow up all over the place. Honestly, I think the wrong name is really leading everyone down a path that makes no sense.

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
So, The Avengers has me seriously crushing hard on Jeremy Renner. Just curious, does he have a Blind Vice? My ginormous Labradoodles send their love.
—Love, S

Dear Hawkeye on the Prize:
But of course! Though he's been involved in his Vice long before he ever took on his superhero duties. Give your giant babies some kisses from me!"

EggHead said...

@steph79-actually the AIAs don't necessarily have anything at all to do with the subject of the blind. I remember reading a question to Ted, back when the Mails were still Bitch Backs, that basically asked whether the AIAs were clues to the identity of the vicer. And Ted said it depends, sometimes they are, and sometimes they are completely unrelated. So you can't really base a guess on the AIAs, because of this. AIAs are far from a deciding factor in guessing a BVs identity, sometimes they can be helpful, but just as often they can just throw you off track, because you can sit there all day trying to connect them to someone who fits the clues when in reality they're basically red herrings, with nothing at all to do with the subject of the vice.

PrincessTiff said...

I have asked Ted on at least 5 different occasions if the girls from Pretty Little Liars have any vices. He ignored me all the times, except today, he printed my question and Ashley Benson and Chord Overstreet dating. He answered that part and ignored my inquiry about vices. To me, that seems like someone from PLL has a vice but I have no idea who or what vice. I'm wondering if Harriet Talons could be on PLL? (And yes, I've just admitted to all of you MY vice--I love Pretty Little Liars!)

Steph79 said...

So, did Ted get fired over this? That's what's being said over on E!Online.

Michelle said...

We'll never know for sure, but I'm guessing yes.

PrincessTiff said...

I wouldn't surprise me if that's why he's leaving, but I feel like if he is being sued, TMZ would pick up the story.

blurry vice said...

Seems like it, timing wise.

Lee said...

HA, Jeremy Renner is uh Toothy I thought, or maybe not now? Yeah I know Jake still fits the bill but uh...it's far from being closed and no i don't think i'm in denial either.
-Lee

blurry vice said...

Ted's tweet today -

"hearing some silly stuff out there: @JeremyRenner and @TomCruise had nothing to do w/ my decision to leave E! It was mine alone "

blurry vice said...

Lee - No, you need to read our archives on Toothy Tile. Toothy was A-list back in 2005. Jeremy Renner was not even on the scene then.

lucent said...

He might be bisexual then because I read a different blind item in the Philippines when he was shooting the Bourne Legacy there (http://www.fashionpulis.com/2012/08/just-engaging-in-some-recreation.html)

News today that Jeremy Renner will be a Dad!

http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-moms/news/jeremy-renner-is-going-to-be-a-dad-ex-girlfriend-is-pregnant-2013161

http://www.laineygossip.com/Jeremy-Renner-baby-father-to-pregnant-ex-girlfriend/25706

Us Weekly had the exclusive (read: PR-assisted story)and Lainey knew it was coming because she foreshadowed it in her intro and had a bit of her own intel to add to her own story just an hour later.

A few revelations for me!

1) More confirmation that Lainey is thick with someone at US Weekly, one of the most celeb-sanctioned rags out there. There have been several times in the past year that Lainey either blinded a scoop that was revealed by US soon after or had a foreshadow of a store about to break on US. Sad. If I wanted US Weekly's PR-written stories I'd just read US!


2) Jeremy is still gay! His PR thinks that this way of coming out with the story of his baby will help solidify his rep as straight while at the same time explain the baby that he's going to be toting around LA soon. See, that mother is going to vanish. Poof. Not in the parenting picture. Why? Because she's just a surrogate. Jeremy is not going to the Ricky Martin route (look! I adopted!). Or the Toothy Tile route (keeping it hidden). And his way is probably the best way for someone who wants to stay in the closet!
