Lainey - Mother Issues

New Lainey riddle today -

Mother Issues

She’s a mega-star who started young and seemed to not be affected by the child star curse. Seemed to be. But eventually, that sh-t will find you, even on a delay.
It’s the mother. Though the parents were previously thought to be harmless... the mother now appears to be going full Dina Lohan. The mother has been hitting her up for cash for a while now, the better part of a year. To support her own projects, resurrect her own failed dreams, and her new relationship -- so essentially she’s bankrolling her ma’s midlife crisis. The daughter can afford it, certainly, and if it was just the money, it wouldn’t be getting out, but now she’s being asked by her mother to leverage her own fame and influence for industry contacts and connections. Since she can’t get a meeting on her own, she’s been namechecking her daughter to get in the door, and when that doesn’t work, she’s been pressuring her daughter to step in on her behalf, jeopardising her daughter’s reputation. No matter how hot you are, you don’t want to be known as the girl with That Mother. It’s becoming a concern for the daughter’s management team, as they worry that her ma’s increasingly aggressive famewhoring will undo their own moves in advancing the young star’s career. As you can imagine, it’s a delicate, uncomfortable situation. She is loyal and protective to and of her family. But she cannot deny that her mother may be compromising her professionally and is torn about whether or not to indulge her mother’s demands or look out for herself instead. She’s stressed, and while that doesn’t excuse her mistakes, it does provide some insight about some of her behaviour.
By the way, her boyfriend has been very supportive through all of this, certainly her most reliable source of strength.

This is a spin-off from a small riddle in her shout-out section from yesterday, 3/12:

And for Veronique from your sister Justine -- Happy Birthday...with a blind? A young mega-star’s mother is turning into somewhat of a Dina Lohan, hitting her up not only for cash but for contacts. Mom has been begging her daughter to set up meetings for her -- industry connections to finance her upcoming projects. Her famous child is becoming increasingly uncomfortable with the struggle, especially since her management team has vehemently against it. Some of her handlers are worried mom’s issues might present challenges for her own career. 


Top suspect: Kristen Stewart

K Stew?

Chloe moretz

Chloe Moretz is not really a megastar, is she?

I think KStew too. Her mother got divorced fairly recently and has been trying her hand at directing. It would also explain the reference to the star's "mistakes" (ie public cheating)



jen said...

I thought of Kristen stewart. Her mom got to direct a movie solely due to her daughter's marketability. She also had Kristen do a small voice-over in the film so that she could technically be part of the credits. I don't see her mom gross like dina lohan at all, but I could see her depending too much on the stew behind the scenes professionally, and I think Lainey has mentikoned before that her parents just divorced and her mom has leaned on her too much. Poor Rob and his lady problems. lol

katie said...

Stewart for sure. Her mom is newly divorced and accompanied her and robert to Cannes in order to schmooze it up. It might explain all the hot mess affair issues kristen had last summer with that creepy daddy figure director.

Anna said...

K-Stew.

tinamarie said...

Definitely Kristen. That's the only person I thought of when I read this. To bad that parents do this to their kids.

golden lanai said...

Based on how Lainey's so anxious to lay all of issues with the grown daughter's personal and career choices at the mom's feet, I'm going Kristen Stewart too. Lainey loves her and this definitely reads as a justification for how badly Kristen's messed up her own career/reputation.

L said...

Dakota Fanning

smuthound said...

Definitely Kstew. She mentions that her BF has been very supportive and Lainey is basically ignoring all the breakup rumors. Explains alot....

jen said...

lainey's been pretty harsh on kristen lately actually. She liked her a lot at first, but got tired of her snottiness and awkwardness and then fell in love with emma stone and jennifer lawerence instead. I don't think she's trying to justify her eff-ups last year, there's been rumors of kristen's mom being a total backstage-mom for awhile now ever since she hyped her movie via kristen's popularity..

golden lanai said...

I disagree. Even in most of her Lawrence columns, she has to bring up Kristen and how her Oscar day is coming soon, and how people like Jen more than Kristen even though they're the same, acting like Jen and Kristen are bffs, etc. Anytime there's negative Kristen news, either Duana covers it or Lainey buries it in Smutty Tingles.

Cristina said...

I thought for sure this was Beyonce until the mention of a boyfriend

jen said...

golden lanai-Lainey does NOT equate them, has mentioned how much more smartly JL has played the fame game, and that she's an acting phenom while in contrast thinking that KS has her moments, but is rightly criticized for not being able to lose herself in roles like JL can. And lainey's hardly the only person to lump them together a lot, KS was yesterday's it girl, while JL is today's it girl in terms of movie franchises and it statuses. Lainey likes her but at some point she said KS just tires her out with all her angst and "nell" ticks and fidgetyness that she's never outgrown.

Sarah said...

Lainey's been up KStew's ass for a couple years now. Kristen's such a pill that even Lainey can't defend her at times, but if Kristen was any other star, Lainey would tear her apart regularly. Just look at how much she hates on Rooney Mara, who is basically the more talented, slightly less annoying KStew.

Andrew said...

Kristen. Definitely.

I think when Lainey meets someone in a press junket and their pleasant/friendly she defends them a lot. She liked Kristen when she met her. It also explains how up Jake G's ass she is.

I miss Ted. Even if some of them were questionable they were at least interesting.

TorontoLouise said...

I thought maybe it was Hayden Panetierre. Her mom looks and acts like Dina Lohan, has had tons of plastic surgery and is always trying to dress like a teenager. In the past, Lainey has blogged about Hayden becoming a future Lindsay Lohan because of her mother. Hayden's mom got divorced last year and is a soap opera actor. Not sure about the boyfriend thing though. Hayden just reconnected with a former boyfriend (an MMA guy) but she was dating someone else for a year.

Regarding the Kstew guesses:

BlindGossip has been hinting that Robsten haven't been on the best of terms with their relationship contract coming to an end. Would Rob really be the supportive boyfriend in this blind?

marimake said...

I think it's Kristen Stewart. this interview with mommy dearest was published today, andsome answers are very telling.

Lainey would never call Hayden a megastar. Or suggest that she hasn't shown signs of the child star curse. She knows Hayden was a mess as a teenager.

And whatever's up with Robsten, Lainey has said over and over that they're together and their relationship is solid, so the supportive boyfriend matches HER version of events, even if it might not be the truth.

From Lainey today in Smutty Tingles:

Mother of a child star -- it’s always the same, isn’t it? (The Superficial)

It's regarding Selena Gomez. Possible hint?

Lyn said...

I think KStew as well...off topic, new blind today! Im thinking Jason Segel/ Michelle Williams for that one

http://www.laineygossip.com/Doing-it-to-get-her-back-Blind-Riddle/26311

Wurst said...

The new one is definitely Josh Brolin/Diane Lane. Lainey refers to Fassbender in the blind, right after she posts this article, connecting the two:

SamanthazBlog said...

New one is definitely Michelle Williams and Jason Segel (Russell Brand being the "recovery" friend). No one was sad when DL/JB broke up... in fact, I was pretty happy for her.

blurry vice said...

Wurst - interesting hint regarding Selena Gomez. Let's keep that in mind. For now I posted Kristen Stewart as our top suspect. But I do think the Selena blurb may come back into discussion.

blurry vice said...

Wurst - no, we weren't sad about Diane Lane... he was an abuser. Plus she had no past relationship with an abuser that I know of.


I did post the new riddle, and I do think it's Jason Segel and Michelle WIlliams.

Confirmed Kristen Stewart: http://www.laineygossip.com/Kristen-Stewart-is-friends-with-Lindsay-Lohan/26389

"Her latest target is apparently Kristen Stewart who isn't unfamiliar with being hit up for cash money these days."

Aww I thought I was so quick on updating this reveal! Haha so yeh, it's Kristen Stewart.

From Lainey the other day, in an article about Kristen and Rob - hinting about her family pressures:

"Those close to Pattinson tell me that there are some sh-tty influences in her life and that she has poor judgment when it comes to her family and friends. She’s had some family pressures. And she was a child star. Though she may not have f-cked up as spectacularly as some of her child star peers, it doesn’t change the fact that she’s been working steadily for years. Some say she’s “exhausted”, “tapped out”, and is just ready to kick it and have some fun for a while. Live the kind “college” life that she missed while she was on set so much. Lindsay Lohan said the same thing. Her college years have eaten up almost an entire decade. Stewart is much less destructive but Team Pattinson claims that he’s been frustrated with her lack of motivation. Her talent is what he has always loved most, what he’s always been attracted to, and he sees her as the best of her generation, and supposedly considers it a turnoff that she doesn’t seem to be using it. That’s his side."
