Lainey - Two unfaithful wives

New from Lainey -

Two unfaithful wives

The First Wife is still trying to figure out if she wants to be one. She and her husband have been through a lot the last few years, on both sides. It was before the trouble though when she had an affair with a colleague -- still above the line, but with a smaller spotlight, both compared to First Wife and his own wife who's just as famous too, and should be just as acclaimed. The affair was intense, so intense that First Wife wanted to end her marriage and he was going to end his marriage but then her husband needed her in crisis. So she helped him recover, and as soon as he healed, she fell apart. By the time she got it together, her moment with her lover had passed. He happily reconnected with his own wife (though she has no idea) while First Wife is struggling with what would have been.
As for the Second Wife – everyone’s been speculating about her infidelity recently but they might be focusing on the wrong target. The right target isn’t a billionaire but he’s a pretty successful player too, albeit on a smaller screen. Their involvement led to an award for her, and a divorce for him. She was attracted to him because “he’s the hot geeky type like her husband”. Both insist that they never moved past suggestive texting and heavy flirting and never ended up consummating their attraction. Bullsh-t. There was at least one night and that’s why she’s so freaked out about the takedown that’s been coming to her. She’d be happy if they stayed on the current scene they’re on so long as she doesn’t get busted for this one.
PS. Everyone mentioned here is a major celebrity.

Top suspects:
First Wife: Catherine Zeta-Jones (with Bart Feundlich)
Second Wife: Gwyneth Paltrow  (with Brad Falchuk)

First wife is Catherine Zeta Jones and Second wife is Gwyneth.

Kristin said...

Who are the men?

Kristin said...

Vincent Cascell married to Monica Belluci. Met in the set of Oceans 13 prior to Michael Douglas' cancer announcement.

frequentlyinfrequent said...

I though Casell and Belucci announced their separation? That wouldn't exactly fit with the statement in the blind that he happily reconciled with his wife?

vonners gendry said...

Gwyneth paltrow and matthew Morrison?

First Wife = Cathrine Zeta-Jones
Second Wife = Gwyneth Paltrow
First Affair = Chris Martin + CZJ
Second Affair = Matthew Morrison + GOOP

But while Gwyneth and Matthew Morrison seem to fit, Lainey said that Second Wife's affair led to his divorce... I don't think Matthew has ever been married. But GOOP did win an award for Glee and he is on the small screen and is geek-cute.

Chris Martin and Cathrine Zeta-Jones seems strange too, since I can't find an instance of them working together... also isn't his type more Kate Bosworth?

Maybe Vincent and Monica has reconciled during that time.

Could always be Antonio Banderas and Griffith.

Not sure who on Glee has divorced. John Stamos and Rebecca Romijn but they divorced in 2005.

Worker Bee #2 said...

First Wife: Catherine Zeta-Jones
Man: Antonio Banderas
Man's Wife: Melanie Griffith (she's won a Golden Globe for Working Girl; love that movie!)

Second Wife: Gwyneth Paltrow
Man: Matthew Morrison (the "divorce" referenced was the divorce of his character Will on Glee from Terri; Gwyneth won an Emmy for her guest role on Glee).

This is my first time commenting. Love it!

Colleen said...

If CZJ is wife number 1, the 'above the line' clue indicates that the affair may have been with a director. She made a movie with Bart Freundlich just before MD announced his cancer. Bart is Julianne Moore's husband.

duffgrl said...

I just read this blind and immediately thought CZJ for wife#1 and Gwynneth for wife#2. Interesting guesses of Antonio Banderas & Bart Freundlich for CZJ....

Gwynneth won an emmy for "Glee" but Matthew Morrison not divorced-not sure about the guess that the divorce is referring to MM's character's divorce. I didn't read it that way but maybe.

duffgrl said...

Definitely makes more sense for #1 CZJ+ Bart Freundlich. Because Julianne Moore fits "should be just as acclaimed"!

Grace said...

First wife is definitely CZJ, and I like the Vincent Cassel guess for the guy! Re: Julianne Moore's husband - Julianne Moore is plenty acclaimed, certainly moreso than her husband or CZJ. Monica Belluci doesn't get as much attention in the US.

Second wife is obviously Gwyneth, and it shouldn't be too hard to figure out who the guy is because she hasn't won many awards lately, but... I'm not sure about Matthew Morrison. Maybe a producer? Although I wouldn't put it past Lainey to reference a character's divorce on their show, rather than one in real life, and I don't watch Glee to know how on point that might be.

Dana said...

First Wife - CZJ (plus Bart Freundlich)

Second Wife - GOOP (Matthew Morrison certainly seems to fit, except for the divorced reference...)

Cristina Georgina said...

I'm having a really hard time believing Matthew Morrison is the man Gwyneth's been boning. Can he really be considered a "major celebrity"? Even for a television actor, I would say he's no big deal.

Cristina Georgina said...

Also want to add that the First Wife blind is so hard to read, I can't even bother trying to figure out who it's about.

duffgrl said...

Grace: Not Vincent Cassel. If you read closely it says "should be" just as acclaimed-meaning that while Moore has won many awards, she hasn't won an oscar, but should have. CZJ is an oscar winner. Sorry, wouldn't call Cassel or Belucci a "major celebrity".

snickersmom said...

Must be Bart because Lainey is always referencing that she can't believe that Hilary Swank has 2 Oscars and Julianne Moore has none. What about one of the directors for Glee?

duffgrl said...

I think it is Matthew Morrison for #2even though(?) don't see it...it was rumored at the time. She was seen leaving his hotel @ 2am.

D Desouza said...

Definitely CZJ for wife #1. Lainey has always talked about how Julianne Moore deserves an Oscar & since CZJ actually has one it fits that she would reference that the other woman should be as acclaimed.
But ugh... Who is the tv guy with Gwyneth???? I don't think it's Matthew Morrison. He isn't a major celeb and he didn't get divorced.

D Desouza said...

Peter Facinelli was a guest star on Glee & infamously divorced Jenny Garth. Does this fit at all? I wouldn't call him major & I don't know if he's geeky....

Jennifer said...

Wife #2 is Goop. None of the Glee actors is divorced. Maybe one of the writers? The only married one of the 3 is Brad Falchuk. He does have the geeky look from what I can see. And Ryan Murphy is gay and I read somewhere that Ian Brennan is rumoured to be gay. The only problem
Is I can't find anything about him getting divorced...

qarth said...

I’m pretty convinced man #1 is Antonio Banderas. Bart Freundlich doesn’t fit for “Everyone mentioned here is a major celebrity” because I look at that name and think, “Bart who?” Antonia and Melanie are both huge names, Melanie “should be just as acclaimed” as CZJ.

Vincent Cassel doesn’t fit “He happily reconnected with his own wife” because he’s separating from Monica Bellucci. Also, they are well known, but hardly major celebrities on this side of the pond—sorry to be so NA-centric, but Lainey does live on this side. Never mind that CZJ and Cassel didn’t shoot any scenes together in Ocean’s 12 (that I recall), so what are the chances they even saw each other, let alone had time to develop an affair?

Mind you, the clue is “a colleague” but doesn’t say they actually worked together on a project. It could be that they met elsewhere. In which case, the field has just opened up, and man#1 could be almost anyone.

qarth said...

As for wife #2, we all can guess that. Man #2 is harder. Obviously on the downlow because I haven’t heard anything aside from Matthew Morrison (not divorced, not a successful player).

Successful—but geeky—player on the small screen who ended up getting divorced, but helped her get an award? And is a “major celebrity”?

No one is jumping to mind.

Grace said...

@quarth - Antonio Banderas??? Did you bump your head some time in 2005 and just wake up a minute ago? Because that's the last time they worked together. And you think Melanie Griffith should be just as acclaimed as CZJ? Or at all?

I'll give you that Bart Freundlich is not a major celebrity celebrity in his own right, but Vincent Cassell definitely is. Yes Lainey lives in NA, but she pays way more attention than most gossip columnists do to stars overseas, and she's definitely covered him and Monica Belluci in the past. He's been in loads of films in the US, including the Oceans movies and Black Swan, and everybody knows Monica Belluci.

@D Desouza - I don't watch Glee, but based on imdb, Peter Facinelli's and Gwyneth's episodes were years apart. And I don't think he or Jenny Garth qualify as major celebrities. I mean, I know he was in Twilight, but... who cares?

qarth said...

@Grace: Well, Legend of Zorro was 2005 and Ocean’s Twelve was in 2004. By your logic, Vincent Cassel makes worse sense than Banderas because that was a year earlier. Unless CZJ and Cassel made another movie together before 2010?

Not understanding your reasoning there.

Besides, who cares what I think? Melanie Griffith has been around a long time, and some people think CZJ is not that great an actor and didn’t deserve her Oscar. Relative.

reallytotally said...

I think if all the participants were huge superstar household names, Lainey would've used the word "star" or "A-lister". Therefore, I deduct that "major celebrity" can also mean someone of a lot smaller scale of fame, someone we gossip geeks are likely to know.

E.g. Glee actors can all be considered major celebrities by now, as all of us at least know their names :) Most behind-the-scenes types, however, wouldn't fit the bill of celebrity (maybe Ryan Murphy, but he's un-hetero). Some movie directors are celebrities, but not really the TV ones.

For 2nd wife's lover, Matthew Morrison would be the automatic assumption, as he kinda even looks like Chris Martin. However, he's not divorced. You could, at a stretch, interpret that their on-screen involvement led to his on-screen divorce, however it'd be a bizarre clue: why refer to fictional plot developments in a middle of a blind dealing with sorry consequences of real-life affair?

I'm with D Desouza in that Peter Facinelli fits the bill well. He's a celebrity after Twilight and Glee (=you got to be a celebrity of sorts to get into the gossip rags meant for the general public). He's divorced. He has starred in Glee, and although him and GOOP apparently weren't in the same episodes, I think the blind leaves room for interpration: "Their involvement led to an award for her, and a divorce for him." Could it mean their involvement with the show (in general) led to these two separate events, and not their affair/involvement together on-screen?

Is he a "hot geeky type" though?

reallytotally said...

With the 1st wife (for which CZJ makes lots of sense), the word "colleague" is troublesome: I'm with Qarth in that it doesn't have to be someone she worked with on a project, it could be a fellow actor in general.

And even if they did work together, it doesn't have to be a recent project: maybe the affair heated up later, e.g. after a bad batch in her/his marriage.

Just thinking, as nobody seems to fit that too well, especially when the missus must be a celebrity too...

If going with the earlier suggestions and basically the only applicable men from CZJ's working past:

Banderas+Griffith could work, except: "with a smaller spotlight, both compared to First Wife and his own wife who's just as famous too". I don't think Banderas is noticeably smaller scale than both CZJ and Griffith?

Cassel+Bellucci doesn't really fit: "He happily reconnected with his own wife (though she has no idea) while First Wife is struggling with what would have been." This to me implies that this is the status at the moment, and C+B announced their separation over the summer, and apparently it was a long time coming. And apparently they had an open marriage, so Bellucci probably would've known about the affair.

Freundlich+Moore, maybe - he's for sure lesser level fame than Moore/CZJ, but still "above the line" in films, being a director. Pretty well-known name, though "major" celebrity is bit of a stretch...

Luce said...

I'm all for Bart Freundlich and Julianne Moore/CZJ and Michael Douglas for #1.

Bart and CZJ worked together on The Rebound in 2009, which seems to fit the time frame of when they would have started the affair. First off, he's a 'colleague'.

Also, Bart fits the "above the line but smaller spotlight" description, noting in particular "both compared to First Wife and his own wife who's just as famous too". I'd say Cassel/Belluci or Banderas/Griffith kind of have equal billing to each other as stars. Vincent Cassel isn't way less famous than Monica Belluci.

#2 is def. Gwyneth but I don't know about Matthew Morrison. He seems to fit but really? GOOP wanted herself a piece of that dorkiness?

Dana said...

This is probably off, but Lainey called Tom Hiddleston a dork several times today and he and GOOP were in the Avengers together... The rest of it doesn't seem to fit though.

MD1979 said...

Definitely Gwyneth for Wife #2. The reference to the "right target isn't a billionaire" is a reference to her alleged cheating with billionaire Jeffrey Soffer, and the "takedown that's been coming to her" is a reference to the Vanity Fair article that came out in October which detailed her alleged cheating with Jeffrey Soffer. Also she was clearly "so freaked out" because she's been emailing all her celeb friends to boycott Vanity Fair.

Cristina Georgina said...

New blind on Lainey: Not a happy day. My guess is that Tapanga chick (cannot be bothered to look up her room real name). She seems like a diva.

Dana said...

For the new blind - Alexi Ashe who married Seth Meyers recently? Kate Bosworth, Megan Hilty (Smash), Christina Ricci, Kelly Clarkson and Rose McGowan have all gotten married recently.

laurencogstorey said...

@Dana I'm stumped on this one. I could see Lainey posting about Kate Bosworth before the others. Although, she did post about Seth Meyers' wedding weeks ago. I would hate for that monster to be Kelly Clarkson, lol!

Dana said...

Here's the write up she did already on Seth Meyers' bride & the wedding. Really makes me think it's her - especially since the blind says "Is too late to reconsider?" which sounds like a warning to the groom/hint that the groom might be the celebrity. http://www.laineygossip.com/Seth-Meyers-wedding-photos-in-VOGUE/28443

D Desouza said...

I immediately went to Seth Meyers wife on this one. Lainey kind of hinted at it when she reported on it, didn't she?
I'm still obsessed with the 2 wives though. Who did Gwyneth Paltrow have can affair with??? Lainey?????!!!!!

platox said...

Man, this really stumped me, but I think I got the bog names, but still stumped on the exact affairee, perhaps someone can help who knows more.

Gwyneth Paltrow

Will Smith
Jada Pinkett Smith
(Someone from Hawthorne perhaps?Marc Anthony? Or)

platox said...

Oh, and my guess is "Rose McGowan" on the Happy Day Blind. Not exactly a big celeb, I know, but "Rose" and all that talk of flowers kinda works, meh.

blurry vice said...

Updating top suspects: Catherine Zeta-Jones, Gwyneth Paltrow. Bart Freundlich seems to fit... although is he a "major celebrity"?? Not really a known name. As for Matthew Morrison... he didn't get divorced did he? I am thinking he fits although hasn't had a divorce. ???

kit said...

Gwyneth Paltrow and John Stamos both guest starred in a glee episode called "sexy". He was married to Emma and they got divorced in the show. He was huge in the 90's so I don't know if she considers him a major celebrity now.

platox said...

You guys see all the Faith Hill/Tim McGraw Gwyneth Paltrow affair innuendo she posted today? Perhaps a tad literal to be called innuendo though, hmmm...

Leila Nea said...

Matthew Morrison is gay not bi, so it can't be him.

Mars said...

So Lainey just confirmed this Vice. I'm still confused on who the guy on Glee is though. Here's the excerpt:
"As for whether or not G really is an, ahem, unfaithful wife, well, there’s more than one. But then again, you would have known this already if you’ve been reading, especially since October. That said, Kevin Yorn isn’t the one I was thinking of, and if that’s the case, it would mean there are multiples, although they might have some music in common. Definitely not a day of glee in the Paltrow-Martin household. And definitely not a sentence I’d normally use unless it was to make it obvious."

Brooke said...

Okay, so who from Glee has gotten a divorce? Anybody?

reallytotally said...

So I interpreted that one of Kevin Yorn's/his firm's clients has a music connection with the Glee persona in question..? I tried googling their clients, and altough didn't come up with a full list (can anyone access imdb pro?), I did spot Scarlett Johansson. There might be other options too, but I know she's definitely made music.

I then tried cross-referencing her with Matthew Morrison and John Stamos (I also googled "Peter Facinelli" and "music", but nothing came up immediately). And lo and behold - an album called "Unexpected Dreams: Songs From the Stars" turned up, featuring songs by both Johansson and Stamos.

Could it be John Stamos then?

di butler said...

Tim, Faith, Goop, Chris.

Morrison isn't the only fling for The Goopster. ��

Brandy said...

Today in the story about the GOOP conscious uncoupling Lainey says that G keeps her lawyers and showrunners undercover and only has public relationship with men who give her status. I don't know the showrunners from Glee, but I do believe this was a big hint to this blind.

Mich said...

Today from Lainey:

"The side pieces she keeps hidden. Lawyers and showrunners are not out in the open"

So Brad Fulchuk??

Also, is she hinting that Kate Hudson is interested in him as well?

"How long will it be before Kate Hudson sets her next target though? And how will that upset the fragile peace between Hollywood pedigreed blondes?"

Brandy said...

I'm not sure what she is hinting at with Kate Hudson, maybe that she goes for rockers and her relationship is rumored to be on the rocks? Lainey is obviously confirming that Chris has had an affair with Alexa Chung and that he fell in love with her.

I think Brad Falchuck is the best guess from Glee, I don't know anything about him but it just about has to be him.

blurry vice said...

I don't know anything about Brad Fulchuk. But this discussion definitely needs to be brought to light again.

blurry vice said...

Lainey yesterday about Gwyneth --

"This comes a few weeks after it was reported on a secret app that she’d been having an affair with entertainment lawyer Kevin Yorn. But then again, if you were blinded and riddled, you probably would have figured that out in October …only that was about someone else. "

platox said...

Whoah, just googled Glee's "Brad Falchuk" and, boy oh boy, he sure fits the description, cute nerdy type, very cute actually. It's gotta be him from this blind!

Sara Balmer said...

Also googled Brad Falchuk and weirdly none of his online bios refer to ex wife/wife they mention the two kids but nothing of the children's mother - strange no?

I think his ex wife (Suzanne!?) was part of glee production too - I'm sure she was an Emmy winner for the program although googling seems to draw a blank now!

I guess then you could argue with the success of glee both the falchuks are major celebrities .

I must say it is totally creepy how she has vanished off the face of the web like she's been erased ...

Jennifer said...

I called it in October! From Lainey today: 'PEOPLE' apparently goes ahead and names the men she allegedly carried on with - Kevin Yorn, Jeffrey Soffer, and, ahem, Glee prducer Brad Falchuk.'

blurry vice said...

Lainey reveal Brad Falchuk

Raincoast Confidential said...

Lainey confirmed it's GOOP and CZJ at an event I attended last week.
