Blind Vice! Franchise Star's Late-Night Secret!

New from Ted today -

Blind Vice!  Franchise Star's Late-Night Secret!


Oh, the luxurious lifestyles of those rich and famous franchise stars!
They basically run Hollywood these days, what with their movies making gajillions of dollars at the box office and all that. But it's when they step out of that limelight that their perfect little facades fade away and their naughty little secrets come to light.
Like, say, Sammy Sniffles and a late night secret that's yet to be exposed...
Until now.
Sammy recently appeared in a mucho-hyped big screen flick, Three Cheers for the Underdog. One of those million dollar popcorn flicks that comes with action figures, legions of devoted fans and instant A-list credit.
And Sam does not disappoint when it comes to living the franchise lifestyle.
For one, S2 is into that whole fakey romance thing (complete with lovey-dovey paparazzi pics, natch), and, while that's one secret Sam would not want revealed, there's a nastier Vice that's starting to draw even more attention:
Cocaine! And loads of it!
Yep, like so many stars of yesteryear (or even yesterday), as soon as Sammy made it big in Tinseltown, the drugs started flowing. Now, Sam—discreetly, of course—will spend the whole night snorting lines of blow.
So when does the party end? Well, it doesn't, really.
Sammy does enough coke to stay awake through the wee hours of the morning, then heads directly from the party to whatever sort of work Sniffles has that day.
So far though, Sam hasn't slipped. But we're assuming it's only a matter of time.
AND IT AIN'T: Kristen Stewart, Josh Hutcherson, Chris Hemsworth

Eliminated as of 6/16/12: Kristen Stewart, Josh Hutcherson, Chris Hemsworth, Cobie Smulders, Andrew Garfield, Michael Fassbender, Scarelett Johansson, Anne Hathaway, Zoe Saldana, Rob Pattinson, (Tom Hiddleston "hardly... not a bad guess"),

blurry vice said...

Hmm, another gender neutral BV character. Someone from the Avengers?

Sara said...

Ahh finally a vice with some juice in it! I thought Ted had mellowed on us for a while!!

Liam Hemsworth maybe? PR pics with Miley?

Not much to go on yet - especially with it being non gender specific

BlahBlahBlah said...

Liam Hemsworth? AIA are brother and co star...box office francise - the hunger games and the expendables 2....girlfriend Miley Cyrus

Michelle said...

I don't see the Miley relaionship being "fake" but maybe it is.

Michelle said...

Some people on Ted's site are saying Chris Evans - chris can be boy or girl like Sammy, but does he have a papped relationship?

hw said...

What about Jennifer Lawrence? Three cheers for the underdog, screams hunger games to me. She has that relationship with Nicholas Hoult. Constantly compared to Kristen stewart. Just a thought.......

cornejos.2004 said...

I was thinking it is likely a female because he threw K Stew into the AIAs. Before that I assumed it was a male.

Mrs. Gonzalez said...

Jennifer Lawrence? Movie sounds like THG. AIAs are her costar, her costar's brother, and the lead in another famous teen franchise. Plus there are PDA shots of her and her bf all over the place.

Brooke said...

As soon as I read this one, I thought of Jennifer Lawrence, especially since he threw K.stew in there, plus, weren't there rumors of her hooking up with Josh? If your not happy at home...

Michelle said...

If this is Jennifer Lawrence she is a better actor than I thought

Blindfolded said...

By reading the comments, Jennifer Lawrence makes sense. Three Cheers for the Underdog- The Hunger Games trilogy. Her district is the underdog. Plays Katniss. To me Katniss= cat Sniffles= a cats name. Her character in Like Crazy is named Sam.

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
Sammy Sniffles has to be Cobie Smulders! Cobie is a boy and girl's name, just as Sammy is! She was in The Avengers! And she's just getting her franchise fame after appearing in How I Met Your Mother!
—Zab

Dear Sniffs-a-Lot:
Not too bad a guess, Z, but Cobie is not our partying franchise star. Sammy definitely took advantage of the attention from that big blockbuster flick, whereas the delightful Ms. Smulders flew a bit more under the radar.

Dear Ted:
Does Chris Evans have a Blind Vice?
—Leah

Dear Red, White and Blind:
Nope. But not for a lack of trying."

EV said...

Liam Hemsworth

Shit You Can't Buy said...

'For one, S2 is into that whole fakey romance thing (complete with lovey-dovey paparazzi pics, natch)'

Fakey, Dovey, Lovey.. That screams Miley for me.. And her nickname was Smiley, also the ...ey..

SO also on the Liam train :)

TLP said...

Liam was first thought, followed by Jennifer. Then Lenny Kravitz j/k lol...

pikespeak said...

I keep thinking Chris Evans.

Denise said...

Someone just posted Ted's response that Chris doesnt have a Blind Vice.

Unknown said...

I'm guessing Jennifer Lawrence for this one. It would explain why she always seems so spastic in interviews if she was a bit high all the time.

Also, the AIA's naming Kristen Stewart also make me think that Ted's giving clues about Kristen's blind vice monicker being Terry Tush Trade.

marc said...

I hate to say it but Jennifer Lawrence fits. DANG IT! Cant anyone be in that business and not turn into a total freak?!

marc said...

I hate to say it but Jennifer Lawrence fits. DANG IT! Cant anyone be in that business and not turn into a total freak?!

Dr.DuckyDuck said...

This absolutely has to be Emma Stone, the franchise being Spiderman. Because the movie is coming out soon, I've been seeing the trailer constantly, as well as pictures of she and Andrew Garfield together and for the past while I've been astounded with how TINY she looks!

For instance:
http://cdn01.cdn.justjaredjr.com/wp-content/uploads/headlines/2012/03/emma-stone-kids-choice-awards-2012.jpg

Savannah said...

Does anyone else think it's weird / random Ted chose to be ambiguous about the gender?

Denise said...

On Blind Gossip today in the comments under a similar blind re:coke , Ace said there is a significant clue in the blind that makes it impossible for Chris Evans to be SS.
What's that clue?

Sara said...

Reading the afternoon mail today I'm leaning towards Emma Stone with the question about the PDA with Andrew Garfield!

Michelle said...

Ted said this week that Emma was vice free - Not her

Kamil said...

Dear Ted:
Does Chris Evans have a Blind Vice?
—Leah

Dear Red, White and Blind:
Nope. But not for a lack of trying.


From the same article last Friday where he eliminated Cobie Smulders. It's way down at the bottom, and kinda easy to miss.

Shannon said...

Sadly, I think I'm going to jump on the Jennifer Lawrence bandwagon. I was leaning more toward Liam Hemsworth bc of Josh and Chris in the AIA's (I just put Kristen off to "another teen franchise" and the fact that she's a girl to throw us off the Liam trail), BUT... after reading Ted's comment about Scarlett Johansson, I have rethought my Liam guess. Someone asked if Sammie was Scarlett and he said "What about 'Three Cheers for the Underdog' screams Scarlett Johansson to you?"

The Hunger Games was already a popular guess for the "movie" here, but if you remember (those who saw it), Wes Bentley had a scene with Donald Sutherland where Wes says "Everyone loves and underdog" and Donald replies "I don't." And of course they are talking about Katniss.

Would Ted be this obvious? Not sure... but I think I'll say it's Jennifer now. Sad about it, though...

Mrs.Chris Evans said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Rita said...

I agree with Shannon, today's Mail confirms to me that this blind is someone from the Hunger Games Trilogy.

I am just glad it's not Josh, that kid looks grounded and sweet!

Add me to the Jennifer Lawrence guess.

Tru Leigh said...

Without a doubt, Chris Evans.

medusa said...

I was going to push back and say there aren't "Hunger Games" action figures, but of course I am wrong. (Plastic Peeta looks adorable, by the way.)

Michelle said...

I'm sad - but I now agree too that its looking like Jennifer Lawrence. Ted just confirmed Liam doesn't have a vice...

Denise said...

Please add Chris Evans to the eliminated list so people who don't read all the comments will stop guessing him.

Rita said...

Off subject.

Anyone went to Lainey's Smut soirée and gotten all the juicy blind-item reveals???

Some of you ladies were kind enough last year to share...

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
How long has Sammy Sniffles been around Hollywood? Also I don't know what to think about Reese Witherspoon. She just seems kind of fake to me, like she always want to seem so perfect. What's her deal? Does have a Vice or make a cameo in a juicy one? I bet she has some role in Vicey behavior.
—H

Dear The Search for Sniffles:
Sniffles has been in H'Wood longer than you may think, but it's more recently that S.S. has shot to stardom. As for Reese? Babe's a Blind Vice superstar. We love the
seemingly sweet-as-pie gal, but let's just say Reese definitely has some Vicey skeletons hidden in her picture-perfect closet.

Dear Ted:
I'm gonna make this real quick: Is Andrew Garfield the cokehead Sammy Sniffles?
—Brainstorming…

Dear Keep Brainstorming…:
No, but Andrew's not a bad guess. Besides, dude could never date Vice-free Emma Stone if he had such an affinity for nose candy. Thank gawd, right? We're totally
Starfield obsessed.

Dear Ted:
Please tell me that Michael Fassbender is not Sammie Sniffles! I have had a crush on him for the longest, and if he does drugs, I'll be devastated!
—Leah

Dear Shameful Sniffles:
Rest assured, L, Fassie is not the elusive Sammie Sniffles. Actually, the two have very little in common. Next guess, please?

Dear Ted:
Going out on a limb, but is Sammie Sniffles Scarlett Johansson?
—D

Dear Are You Kidding:
What part of "Three Cheers for the Underdog" screams Scarlett Johansson?! Next guess, please.

Dear Ted:
Another guess for Sammie Sniffles, could it be Anne Hathaway in Batman? You said Sammie appeared in, but you technically didn't say the movie was released yet. If it
isn't Anne, could you clarify if it's premiered or not?!
—Z

Dear Batman Blind:
Not going to address your par-tick premiere question since I already said S.S. is in a franchise. But, I will say it's not Anne Hathaway. Anne's been an A-lister in the Biz for far too long to fit Sammie's description."

Viking Girl said...

I was just popping in to see if anyone had heard anything re: Laineys Smut Soiree, but I see Rita has got here first. Rita, if you hear anything, please post, my dear - thanks!

Rita said...

*Getting my torturing equipment out of the bag*

Spill Ladies! Or I will use my most dreaded silly jokes to make you tell all.

Jaye C said...

Ok, Ted's lastest comments confirm its not Jennifer Lawrence for me; she and Michael Fassbender has a fair amount in common (X-Men, Oscar nominations, etc).

Starting to think its more Liam to me... despite his engagement to Miley

FrenchGirl said...

but Liam H is with Miley since almost 3 years (even they broke some months in the half of 2010 year)

FrenchGirl said...

and Fassbender never was nominated by Oscar but i agree Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence have too much in common to fit

FrenchGirl said...

who is a party boy/girl with a boy/girlfriend and in a successful franchise movie?

EggHead said...

IT CAN'T BE LIAM. Ted said that Liam is vice free. And Jennifer Lawrence and Fassbender DON'T have much in common at all: she's a girl, he's a guy; age-wise they're from 2 different generations; he's been a well-known, established actor for awhile now whereas no one knew who Jennifer was until she was nominated for winters bone, and even then she didn't really blow up until hunger games, which was obviously very recent. Just because 2 people have been in a movie together doesn't mean they have tons in common with each other. And Ted said they have "very little" in common, which could easily mean "they've been in a movie together but that's about all they have in common." Because it is.

Based on what we know so far I'm definitely going with Jennifer Lawerence.

Caz1310 said...

I'm just glad it's not Fassy!!

keelyrae said...

Josh Duhamel?

Rita said...

Ted confirmed again this morning that Liam Hemsworth, and Daniel Radcliffe, are still vice free.

I'm still stuck on the Jennifer Lawrence guess. She seems to fit, especially with last week's mail on Scarlett Johansson.

NEWBIES: Welcome, and please check the often-updated "Our list of Blind Vice reveals etc" in the hot links section, before making your guess. The list helps you verify first if your top Blind Vice guess has been previously CONFIRMED to already have a moniker.

And as per Ted's rules, no blind vicer has EVER had more than one moniker. Thank you!

Trébuchet said...

^ came here just to say "it's not Liam"!

Still not sold on JL though.

Michelle said...

Rita - have you heard anything, dying to know what happened at SMUT

Rita said...

Okay... got weird answers to a few from personal emails... (friends in BC)

Apparently, Scared Straight, Dimples IS Chace Crawford... WTF spelled out in capital could never describe enough the WTF was that about??? Acclaimed actor, Chace Crawford, my f-cking ass. Because please, let us remember her snark in her own blind "Producer after Producer"..

When she conceived: Uma Thurman (duh), but apparently there are high chances that the newborn would have some sort of physical/developmental health issues. Because there was A LOT OF HARD DRUGS.

Wife Confronts Colleague: Matt Lauer's ever suffering wife.

Her Kids Were Watching: Goopy. Freaked everyone on the set that day, with the kids being present for their mom getting half naked and heavily making out with another man than dad.

Biohazard: Paz de la Huerta. Who apparently HBO would NEVER ever work with. As you all know, HBO have a tendency to use their own pool of superb talent, and employ them over and over in many series. So too bad for Paz...

Hinted at threats from reps for Anne Hathaway. Guess that might have been Lainey's way of confirming that Anne is a blind (affair with Batman??)

Laughed a lot at John Travolta's expense. Boring soirée all in all, too many people, felt more like an after-work gathering between colleagues, so too pricey for simply having a drink and hanging around... Unable to talk to the CEO, i.e. Lainey.

There you go Ladies and Gents, that's all my torturing skills were able to get so far.


Will give more when get more. Hopefully soon!

Dr.DuckyDuck said...

Thanks so much Rita! I think those were mostly the popular guesses on here for each of those blinds, so hooray to us for being good at guessing! :)

Sasha said...

Did anyone else notice that there was no BV from Ted last week? I've been reading Ted for about two years and I've never seen that!

FrenchGirl said...

Dimples=Chace Crawford????? of course

Dominique Wong said...

Emma Stone?

Lila said...

^ Ted has skipped a BV a time or two that I recall.

Nice to know, again, that Lainey is so obvious about her blinds. No bait and switch. Now if only she would allow comments so that her readers could actually have a community around her site without flying to Vancouver for a costly party every year!

Rita said...

^She can't stand the criticism! Her excuse is dealing with Twihards and Brangeloonies. No matter the effective filters and moderators available. I guess this could mean also an additional expense.

Honestly, although I like her snark and at times quite different POV (Chinese triads come to mind), there are many times where I just want to yell "b!tch, are you pmssing?!"

Her picking on some,and being contrary with her "adopted" favorites, while lacing her decisions with woman power is quite undermining of her writing skills.

Krispyc said...

Seems it is Jennifer Lawrence for sure. Someone mentioned they suspected she had a blind vice and that would be devastating. Ted questioned how you could stop being her fan just because of a vice...

He never said she was vice free as he has in the past. Wonder why her romance is fake though. Hmm....

Ella Bee said...

Speaking of the SMUT Soiree, I found this summary of reveals on Lipstick Alley. I'm not really sure how much I trust the site gossip-wise, but it is an interesting addition to Rita's above reveals!

http://www.lipstickalley.com/f15/blinds-revealed-tea-spilled-blogger-lainey-gossip-smut-soiree-2012-a-403903/

Lila said...

Still on Lainey, that excuse is old. I know of no other blog that does this. I'm a digital engagement strategist professionally, and my guess is that, for as big as her website traffic is, it could be so much bigger if she empowered her readers by giving them a voice to share THEIR opinions. The control freak thing is lame.

nycgal212 said...

Can't be Jennifer Lawrence. Ted said today Sammy doesn't know Queen Djibouti, who is obviously Charlize Theron. But Charlize and Jennifer worked together on The Burning Plain. Can't be her. I think its Chris Pine.

CC said...

I'm almost positive this is Zoe Kravitz. Not only does my theory fit all the clues, I posted twice to E! and they keep removing my comment (no profanities I promise). Anyway the theory goes:
- She broke out in X-Men First Class, which is about mutants as underdogs
- Was in a hyped relationship with Fassbender, and now is constantly papped around with Penn Badgley
- She also models and sings, which perfectly fits the comment about "whatever work she has that day"
- She's young and hot and has a rockstar dad! I'd be surprised if she DIDN'T have a vice

Michelle said...

Ted also said today that Jennifer and nicholas were really serious and low key - I'm less inclined that he'd volunteer that she's low key if this was her vice

Blindfolded said...

How does Loki (Tom Hiddleston) sound for Sammy Sniffles? The name Loki is gender neutral, well for me it is.
From 6/1 post: They basically run Hollywood these days, what with their movies making GAJILLIONS of dollars at the box office and all that....Sammy recently appeared in a mucho-hyped big screen flick, Three Cheers for the Underdog. One of those million dollar popcorn flicks that comes with ACTION FIGURES, legions of devoted fans and instant A-list credit. 6/12 post HOt summer awards- which blockbuster is most mantastic : The movie only made a GAJILLION dollars and secured each of the guys an action figure—if they didn't have one already, that is—as well as spinoffs and sequels galore.

Blindfolded said...

'Sniffles has been in H'Wood longer than you may think, but it's more recently that S.S. has shot to stardom' Hiddleston has been around since 2001. 'Not too bad a guess, Z, but Cobie is not our partying franchise star. Sammy definitely took advantage of the attention from that big blockbuster flick' it's obvi someone from Avengers. Use to think it was JL but she does not look the part.

Divingirl said...

He didn't write again today, yet still has morning mail and such. What's up with Ted?

blurry vice said...

"Dear Ted:
You have great casting ideas for Fifty Shades of Grey! Also does Billy Bend-Over have any new projects? And is Sammy Sniffles Zoe Saldana?
—H

Dear Bending Over Backwards:
Billy has a few projects in the works, but you better ask another Q if you want me to be more specific! And no, Zoe Saldana is not Sammy Sniffles, but thanks for the love, H!

Dear Ted:
Is Sammy Sniffles from the Twilight Saga? Robert Pattinson looks like a man who never sleeps.
—Sutton

Dear Coked Out Cullen:
Sammy is not R.Pattz. And I'll throw you a bone: It ain't K.Stew either! But you could have figured that out, babe, because both of 'em are already in the Blind Vice
Superstars' Hall of Naughtiness— and neither his nor her moniker has been revealed.

Dear Ted:
I love your blog, it gives me so much to do when I have so much I actually need to do. However, SPCA boy Ben and I are curious: Sammy Sniffles is totally Tom Hiddleston, right? He's new to the franchise world and A-list world, is the underdog of Avengers, and there are tons of pics of him with his girlfriend.
—Goopiness

Dear Darksided:
Loki the underdog?! Hardly—not with that badass staff and army of killer aliens. But it's not a horrible guess…actually, it's not a bad guess at all.

Dear Ted:
I'm dying for some young Hollywood scoop. How old are Sammy Sniffles and Debbie Doobie? And are Priscilla Desert and Strawberry Snort'Em close? And what's up with
Darla Jones these days? I know, so many questions…
—Raja

Dear The Gangs All Here:
Hmm, I won't pinpoint specific ages, but Debbie has a few years on Sammy, if that helps. As for Strawberry, she and Priscilla definitely know each other but hardly run in the same circles—at least not in their private lives. And Darla? Well, she's sexier than ever, of course!

Dear Ted,
Love the idea of Ryan Kwanten for Finnick Odair, but isn't he a little too old? And on to Vices, does Sammy Sniffles know Queen Djibouti? And is Billy Bend-Over
delicious Mad Men star Jon Hamm?
—H

Dear Just a Number:
Ryan is only a few years older than Mr. Kitsch (who was a casting fave before he nixed it). Jennifer Lawrence is casted older than her character and that worked out fab; I think Mr. Kwanten's abs and acting chops could make us suspend our disbelief. As for your Vice Q's, no and no. Though Billy and Jon do have similarly handsome features."

blurry vice said...

Rita, thanks for the scoop. We were going to try and head up thisyear but didnt make it.

Sasha, yes and this week too.

Boredathome said...

Ted was specifically asked if Sammy was from the Twilight series but he only addressed two of them. Might Sammie be one of the others? Doesn't Nikki Reed get photographed a lot while clubbing and posing with her new American Idol hubby? Her reputation has always been a bit questionable anyway, hasn't it?

Boredathome said...

dust said...

it can't be tom hiddleston: 1) he started early but mostly on brit shows, not hollywood; 2) he's single since at least they started promotion. people barely knew about his ex-gf actress. so there's no flauting fake romances; 3) ted said it's not such a horrible guess, not a bad guess at all. so the fact that he even used a superlative negative word ( though he 'not'-ed it), it means that the guess was still off. my #2 reason is still the strongest one why it can't be tom.

dust said...

another reason it can't be tom. ted says: "whatever sort of work Sniffles has that day"

tom is still doing Henry IV/V tv movies, which are important for uk being the host for the olympics. i don't think those count as just "whatever sort of work"...

Hez said...

So, I was at the Smut Soiree, and as I commented to the Lainey group on FB, I'm not sure the Chace Crawford reveal was actually for "Dimples"... clearly it doesn't fit, so let's not call that one solved yet, and here's why:

It's important to know that it was VERY noisy during the Q & A, and despite the mic, Lainey definitely couldn't hear what the questioner was asking her. *Most importantly,* the questioner never referred to the Blind by name ("Dimples & Drama"), she merely asked who the "All-American Boy" was. It was the other guests around the woman who were shouting "Dimples & Drama," but they weren't mic'd.

The questioner was unclear and not heard properly, and from where I sat, it didn't sound like Lainey actually knew which blind she was answering. [It sounded to me like "All-American Boy" is the one from one of the Casting Couch blinds, which had indeed been suspected to be Chace.]

It was confusing enough that I suggested to the Lainey FB group that someone at the upcoming Toronto Smut Soiree ask the same question again but using the proper name for the Blind this time. I still think Dimples is JGL.

Rita said...

Wow, thanks Hez, it makes so much more sense! Lainey had always had such disdain for Crawford, that it made really question her smutty-gossip integrity, when it was reported that she thought Crawford was an "Acclaimed Actor", as per the blind!

Do you remember any of the other reveals?

And did you find the soirée was worth the expense?

Thanks in advance!

Ms. Estella said...

RE: Lainey...

I think I saw a similar list on Oh No They Didn't! as the one posted above on Lipstick alley...

Just wanted to say thanks to Hez & Rita for the added insights. Also, Hez, what Lainey FB group is that?

Hez said...

It's a private group I applied to join called "Lainey Lurve" where gossip is discussed much as it is here. I should add that Lainey herself is not a part of it and is not on Facebook in any capacity.

Michelle said...

I'm really beginning to think Ted got in deep do-do ver the Jeremy slip, If you've noticed he hasn't answered many if any questions around Freddie and its like he's trying to imply sammy is an avenger and really Jeremy is the best fit of that group for this. Might be why he hasnt done a blind in a couple weeks now too.

Ella Bee said...

Ooh, good call Michelle. It has been quite a while since he wrote one and that makes total sense. You'd think some of that heat should fall on an editor/legal and not just Ted himself--you know it all has to go through them first before publishing.

On a related note, I have been craving BIs so bad I've been trolling GossipRocks and CDAN just for a little thrill;)

hordac said...

Thanks for the input on smut soiree! I was tempted to go to the Toronto one but didn't really have anyone to go with. I thought I would just be walking around not knowing what to do with myself, so I am glad I didn't go (or is it still in the future, can't remember the date). I am thinking of advertising on Laineygossip.com for my business in the fall so maybe I will be invited in that capacity? LOL, yeah probably not.

Ella Bee said...

@hordac, I believe it's next Monday or Tuesday. Drag a girlfriend and go on a mission for the sisters and this community, haha! I would, if I wasn't in Cali. Especially if what Hez says is true and she is holding back all the good dirt for the Toronto party.

Unknown said...

Another Friday with no BV. I'm also starting to suspect that Ted's had some major backlash after the Jeremy Renner incident. He's not really even responding to very many questions about old BV's anymore. It's all 50 Shades of Gray and Robsten all the time now.

EV said...

It sucks, no BV for 3 weeks in a row! Barely any Afternoon Mail lately either. The Morning Mail has been generic & nothing juicy either.

Angie said...

Dear Ted:
I'm dying for some young Hollywood scoop. How old are Sammy Sniffles and Debbie Doobie? And are Priscilla Desert and Strawberry Snort'Em close? And what's up with
Darla Jones these days? I know, so many questions…
—Raja

Dear The Gangs All Here:
Hmm, I won't pinpoint specific ages, but Debbie has a few years on Sammy, if that helps


So if Debbie Doobie is Demi Lovato, Sammy Sniffles must be really young since Demi is only 19. Is that right or did I interpret that answer incorrectly?

sashie said...

Ugh, I know! It's so frustrating. Between him and Lainey, there haven't been any BV's lately. I widower what's going on. Anybody think the RDJ/Hmmm thing has something to do with this?

Lyn said...

No, I never thought RDJ was the anonymous blogger- I mean, "Hmmm" gave a generic landline number that anyone with google could access as proof! Plus Ted never really adressed that, so why would he get any heat? I think the Renner BV situation is much more likely.

As far as Sammi Sniffles is concerned, Tom's not doing the paprazzi- romance thing- who from the Avengers is? Could it be another franchise?

Michelle said...

Sooo In Lainey's John Travolta post, where she openly says he's gay, she has a small blind about another actor who she loves, but basically won't out because of how he is handling the situation versus JT. Sounds like Hugh Jackman to me, she always posts how much she loves him.

Rita said...

Michelle, I was just about to post the same exact thing!!!!

It sounded like Hugh Jackman as well. Everyone knows about it, the only difference with John, besides no official media announcement about his sexuality, is the steady boyfriend.

Unlike John, who not only likes a LOT of diversity, but is rather also quite predatory about his "courtship" of men in service. Snort.

Hez said...

Rita et. al.,

So I'm told via some Lainey FB group members who were present that she revealed "Dimples & Drama" at her Toronto SMUT Soiree tonight to be JGL and Michael Pitt, which totally fits now in my mind on both counts. In that light, the Chace Crawford response she seemed to give at the Vancouver party that struck me as a terrible fit really only makes sense for the reasons I outlined earlier upthread. And I'm so glad someone helped out by re-framing the question! Way to go, teamwork!

Rita said...

@Hez,

Thank you! I think confirmations would be showing up on different blogs by now. And JGL makes so much more sense as Dimples!

...And JGL and Michael Pitt... I would have liked to see pictures of that! Michael is one dirty-dirty hot boy ;)

EggHead said...

Sooo idk if anyone else has noticed this or not...but E! just completely redid their iPhone app, which is the only way I access E online-I never actually get on the computer to check it. And when they revamped it, THEY COMPLETELY REMOVED TED'S COLUMN. Now idk if this is just something with the app, and his column is still easily accessed on the regular computer. I moved recently and don't have my Internet hooked up in my new apartment yet, so I can't check. But if not, and his column is removed from the actual website as well, it would definitely lead me to believe that Ted did indeed get in some shit over the Jeremy Renner slipup. With the sudden lack of new blinds from him, and then the complete disappearance of his column (if it's actually missing from the regular site), I just can't think of any other explanation!! What do y'all think?!?

Kimstyle said...

@egghead

the column is still on my comp, but I AM wondering WHAT'S going on with the vices?!

It's been 1 month today since the last BV

Probably more strange, Ted just hasn't mentioned it?!?!?
Like, if it was a slow month and he couldn't come up with a vice, you'd think he'd give an off hand mention.

Miss Faye said...

Maybe Ted got fired.

HeSaidSheSaid;) said...

LIAm, JEnnifer, EMma make a pic

Rita said...

@Miss Faye

My thoughts as well. I've written Ted, and usually, not to toot my own horn, but most of the time I get an answer, as well as being included in the Mail.

Nothing in the past 2 weeks. Sent also to Ted's Twitter regarding rumors of E! letting him go.

Nothing.

They will have to explain soon enough. And I think it was Michelle who has pointed out first that "Ted" hasn't posted since his SNAFU with the Jeremy Renner blind.

Something is definetly up, besides the whole no vices, he hasnt done alot of other columns, like morning and weekend mail. Maybe if he did get fired, they might be bringing in a new gossip guru. Can they still call it Ted's column if he's no longer working there?

yup methinks he has been suspended or fired, and if he did get fired, then I would think they could keep Awful truth as thats E's trademark, but take of his name and pic. Like Mark Malkin's "The Awful Truth ".
And As Rita pointed out, I mentioned it all started after the Jeremy slip. I think it is because of that.

Ted created The Awful Truth while at Premiere magazine. I bet (hope) he protected his ownership rights in his contract w/ E!.

It is almost laughable that there has been no explanation @ his absence....one column a day, no blinds, b!touchbacks or videos. After this BV slip is worked out, Ted should have his own gossip/reality show, maybe on Bravo. He has a lot of fans, before and after E!.

In the meantime, someone has some 'splaining to do.

LeftWingLock said...

Looks like you all were right...Ted's farewell column is up this morning. =(

EV said...

Sad that Ted is leaving E. I hope he continues & starts his own independent gossip blog.

We all started to feel something was up the past few weeks & when E redesigned their entire mobile app and The Awful Truth was not on there, things looks bad.

Rita said...

F-ck!!!

Well, my heart is broken.

Savannah said...

I can't believe the Awful Truth is over!!!! How are we going to live without BVs to guess on???

I do hope he starts his own site. What do you guys think will happen with the BV monikers??? Will E! just discontinue the Awful Truth or hire someone new to write it? And if they hire someone new will that person still refer to Ted's BV monikers? If Ted starts a new site will he use his BV monikers? I imagine there could be a clause in his contract or whatever that won't allow him to use content owned by The Awful Truth / E!.

In light of this it also makes sense that Ted gave some major clues in the past few weeks that made it obvious that Mila is Portia Vajazzle, Hayden Christensen is JJO, etc

EV said...

In today's Goodbye column, Ted said to follow him on Twitter. This reminded me about how Ted had changed his Twitter handle from The Awful Truth to Ted Casablanca. So maybe leaving E was a long time coming. The Twitter name change may have been much more significant than we ever thought.

That is kind of a terse goodbye! I'll miss the B.V.s. :/

The funny thing is, The Accidentally Revealed One didn't seem to fit the description of Freddie at all...

NyxDeluxe said...

hi!
been here before, under another name... :) wouldn't it be a nice idea, to write a goodbye letter to ted? from you sisters? an open letter on this site from all of us with a big thank you?
greetings

Word! said...

I want to believe that this Freddie situation proves how spot on the vices are, but because Ted and Lainey seem to differ greatly on a few of them, re: sexualities and whatnot, does this slip up even prove anything for sure?

I mentioned the Oprah thing to someone and they were about ready to kill me over it, haha!

Rita said...

@Word!

People are stupid like that. They don't understand that someone being gay, their favorite star being gay, is neither a crime nor an insult.

Furthermore, they simply do not grasp that their exact homophobic and bigot reaction, is the reason why many a star, including their "adored" one, stays in the closet.


@Nyx

I'm quite sure the sisters will be putting his "Thank You" letter up sometime soon, and we can leave our goodbyes and good wishes in the comment section.

That being said...


@to all,

Ted has brought the Awful Truth from Premiere. It is his ownership. As @EV had stated, Ted had changed his Twitter handle a few weeks back (I believe before the Jeremy debacle -?), so his move was not a surprise, at least for him.

And let's face it, he does seem a bit frustrated at times, especially with all things promotional-obligations towards the trashy Kardashian Klan.

He has ownership of the AT, he asked us to follow him on Twitter, so I am quite hopeful that this probably means that he already has another job lined-up.

We'll hear from him soon enough, depending on his end-of-contract agreement with E!

The question remains: Who has ownership of the BV monikers? E! or the AT?

As for revealing some, about a year ago Ted had said no way, not even after his death... But he sure has been easily leading us towards solving a few lately!

So... Fingers crossed. Hope Ted will keep the AT huffing, puffing, and gossiping for years to come.

Cheers!

blurry vice said...

I'm so sad too. Hopefully we can still read his viewpoints elsewhere, not just Twitter but a blog or column. Crazy that this was his last BV, Sammy Sniffles. Ugh. Yes and good point about chaning his twitter name. This must have been going on for a while longer than I thought. The past few weeks were so slow but this must have been longer than that. :(

EggHead said...

@MonkeyFace-OMG I loooooove the idea of Ted on bravo!!! I unashamedly love bravo and am obsessed with the housewives as well as Andy, if Ted was added to the mix I would just die!!! Can you imagine him as a guest on watch what happens live?!? I am obsessed now and may start campaigning LOL.

Tom hardy?
