Lainey - The parent at the party with strangers

Another new Lainey riddle today!

The parent at the party with strangers

I’m trying to bank some goodwill with you so here’s the second blind in two days. You’ll understand tomorrow.
Motherhood hasn’t slowed her down. Not professionally and definitely not when she parties. I mean, some people can use recreationally and it doesn’t become a problem. Maybe that’s why she feels she can do it so openly. For her, she doesn’t act like it’s something she has to hide. Because she was recently hanging out in a hotel, with some friends and a few strangers, and she snorted a few lines, no paranoia, no worries about the fact that while these people certainly knew her, she definitely didn’t know them. This surprised me because she’s never been that girl who’s had drug culture association through her career. She’s not a fixture on the standard party circuit. She doesn’t roll with an LA crowd of club rats. But see? The Celebrity Ecosystem can still f-ck up your sh-t. Anyway, the kid is still small so we’ll give her the benefit of the doubt that she’s not breastfeeding anymore? That’s where it gets kinda sketchy.

Current top suspects: Penelope Cruz, Miranda Kerr, Sienna Miller, Scarlett Johannson

I have not seen anyone else's guess yet, and don't see any clues in here yet. But off the top of my head I thought of Kristen Bell for this. I know there are a lot of other celeb babies out there, though!

Amanda Buckles said...

ScarJo?

Kristin Wigs said...

ScarJo or Olivia Wilde. Kinda sounds like it may be the mother's first child. Also, the breast feeding mention is pointing to the fact that the woman has talked about it in the press. I know Wilde has, but no clue if Scarlet has.

I dig the Kristen Bell guess too.

LY said...

Mila Kunis has talked about it as well and she just had a baby. But I think the clue is in the beginning--not being slowed down professionally. Of all the guesses, I think ScarJo is the only one who Lainey has talked about being successful without using her baby as leverage.

January Jones!!!!!!

Sarah said...

Kristen Bell doesn't drink or do drugs apparently, so I don't think it's her. Scar Jo could be a good guess. Or, Blake Lively?

Thomas Fisher said...

Mila or Scarjo?
Don't think it's Olivia. She's just recently moved to a new house, and when she goes to concerts sometimes, Sudeikis is always with her.

And she is not a big fan of drugs either. Drug and adiction to is was an issue for many of her 1st husband's closest family members, but her husband was (and is) always clean. She said otherwise they wouldn't be married in the first place.

Seer said...

I was thinking Blake Lively too - she and Ryan were just seen traveling, hence the hotel

Amanda said...

Or Sienna (American Sniper, Foxcatcher = "motherhood hasn't slowed her down")

LP said...

It is Penelope Cruz.
1)She was randomly inserted into a post about Jared Leto on the same day that this blind item was posted.
2) She has publicly advocated for breastfeeding.

JJ said...

I was thinking definitely Blake Lively.

Dea said...

put me in for sienna miller as well. former party girl, busy this year, hints at motherhood, it all adds up.

Jamie said...

Miranda Kerr. The only female mentioned in today's post was her - if Lainey was going to mention any of the girls that DiCaprio was rumoured to have ever slept with, it didn't need to be er. Also, Lainey would have known that she was having surgery today and wouldn't be able to do a full days posting.

The blind said that it would make sense tomorrow, that's why.

Jamie said...

I was thinking ScarJo, but Sienna Miller is a good guess.

There's no way it's January Jones - her kid must be like 4 now. And Blake Lively barely has a career to slow down, motherhood or otherwise.

Jamie said...

Also no way it's Miranda Kerr. Her kid is way too old for breastfeeding to be a potential concern.

Helena Handbasket said...

It is Miranda Kerr. In her blind, she states that "you will understand tomorrow". In her header topic the next day, Lainey mentions Miranda Kerr and that she night have been banging (who Lainey always refers to as being in the rat-pack. In this blind she mentions "She doesn’t roll with an LA crowd of club rats". Also, Lainey clearly states in this blind that we are giving her the benefit of the doubt that she is NOT breastfeeding the child. Meaning, the kid is small but too big to be breastfeeding, we assume. Lainey never states that she IS breastfeeding.

LP said...

When Lainey says in her blind that "you will understand tomorrow" she is clearly referring to us understanding why she was building up good will with us (becuase of her arm surgery, which she revealved the following day). The reference to Miranda Kerr in the open yesterday was not completely random; Lainey was talking about Leo finding it necessary to issue a statement to deny rumors about hooking up with Rihanna, but not finding it necessary to deny rumors about that came out about him hooking up with Miranda Kerr when she was MARRIED. Besides, her kid is almost 5; most people don't need the benefit of the doubt about breastfeeding a child at that age - it is usually a given.

It is Penelope Cruz. Her child is a year and a half old, and she has publicy advocated for breastfeeding. Lainey also very randomly insterted Penelope Cruz into a post about Jared Leto and his hair on the same day as the blind riddle. It's her.

Ash said...

I'm going with Scarlett Johansson for this one. Lainey talks about her all the time and how motherhood hasn't slowed her down career wise. Scarlett jumped right back in there. I'm impressed, that's hard to do! That's why I thought of her right away. Scarlett has also talked about how she's breastfeeding (during her Barbara Walters interview in December). Plus her baby was just born in September, so she's only 6 months old, which means she's definitely young enough to be breastfeeding.

Sienna took a bit of a hiatus after having her baby, and so did Penelope Cruz. I don't think Kristen Bell has been up to much (work wise) either recently. Kristen could still be breastfeeding, but the work stuff doesn't fit. Penelope + Sienna's babies will both be 2 years old this summer… you guys, that's a loonnnggg time to breastfeed! It's possible, but it's probably unlikely that they're breastfeeding toddlers.

I think Scarlett is the best guess right now.

Helena Handbasket said...

I must be missing the random comment about Peneplope Cruz in the Jared Leto posting about his hair. I have read it three times and I don't see her name in there. This is in reference to LP's comment. What am I missing?

LP said...

Helena: it is in the Jared Leto posting from March 3rd (same day as the blind riddle was posted); not the most recent post about his bleached hair. The post is entitled "Jordan Catalano is back for real". And the random reference said "He had good hair, sure. But not great hair. Not, like, Penelope Cruz hair."

Ash: I think the breastfeeding comment was mostly a tip. Regardless, while maybe not true for the average woman, 1 to 2 years old is within the realm of possibility for breastfeeding. And Lainey says she is giving her the benefit of the doubt that she is no longer breastfeeding, meaning that she probably is not. But regardless I doubt Lainey was sitting around doing the math and figuring out whether it was probable or not before she inserted the tip into her post. There was an US Weekly article a couple of years ago where Penelope called breastfeeding addictive and said she was going to nurse her daughter until 13 months.

blurry vice said...

@Ash- it is VERY common for 1 and 2 year olds to breastfeed actually. I believe the World Health Organization encourages breastfeeding until age 2. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends breastfeeding until at least 12 months, and encourages beyond that, as long as mother and child want to.
I do think this is a hint as to who the woman is. Someone who has spoken up about their breastfeeding. The child may be over age 1, and that is what Lainey means... that she is hoping that the breastfeeding is no longer going on, because that would be sketchy.
I like the Penelope Cruz guess due to her talking about breastfeeding in articles. I also could see this being Sienna Miller possibly too. I do not think it is ScarJo or Blake, personally.

blurry vice said...

LP - awesome points, going with Penelope Cruz as top suspect for now.

Kristin Wigs said...

Usually when lainey slyly points to a celeb, there's more of a link. Commenting on how nice Penelope Cruz's hair seemed much ado about nothing. Plus, she's been pretty low key in recent years.

blurry vice said...

Some other celebrities who have either spoken about breastfeeding or have been photographed breastfeeding: Gisele Bundchen, Mayim Bialik, Alicia Silverstone, Angelina Jolie, Gwen Stefani, Pink, Alanis Morrissette, Hilary Duff, Beyonce, Jennifer Garner, Salma Hayek, Tori Spelling, Kourtney Kardashian, I could go on and on.

Misch said...

I find it hard to believe it's Scarlett...does she even have female friends ? She prefers the company of men....wonder how her marriage is going...don't think it will last..

Helena Handbasket said...

ahh thanks LP! How could I have skipped over that? If you hop over to dlisted.com, Michael has a picture of ScarJo attached to this blind.

Drugs would be transmitted into breastmilk. So I read Lainey's BFing comment more as that she was giving the celeb the benefit of the doubt about not breastfeeding anymore because otherwise, the baby would get trace amounts of cocaine.

Jen said...

I agree that this sounds like Scarlett, someone with an edge, but who has stayed out of the partying... who cultivates a very, "i do my own thing and i don't give a fuck" kind of attitude.

Bibsea said...

I'm going with with ScarJo too. The way I read the blind, I really think Lainey has in mind somebody who’s given birth recently, a new mom for whom breastfeeding is still an option. If it had been Penelope, I think she would have used a different clue and not breastfeeding because this connection doesn’t work, not for me, anyway.

MD1979 said...

I can't see Penelope Cruz for this. She took a break after having her kid. She had nothing come out in 2014, and two movies in 2013 (which were probably filmed in 2012, pre-pregnancy or in early pregnancy).

Scarlett Johansson on the other hand had 3 movies out in 2013 and 3 movies out in 2014 and the next Avengers movie is in post-production. Her baby is still so young that one would assume she is still breastfeeding. So giving her the benefit of the doubt would be assuming that she has stopped breastfeeding, despite the baby being only a few months old. Also Lainey had that past blind about her being a b!tch to someone who gave her a compliment about her dress. She seems to fit well for this.

Nobody said...

Here's the reveal from Lainey March 25, it's Jeremy Renner's ex wife: "Pacheco is the (more) unfit parent because she left their child alone in order to go to a party, and there are also accusations of drug use"... "she’s a coke-snorting blackmailer". And a nice fresh baby girl, maybe one year old.

Further proof for ScarJo, looking slimmed down (she's always been petite, but this is dramatic---no typical curves) at the MTV Movie Awards: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-3036276/Scarlett-Johansson-shows-waistline-coral-jumpsuit-MTV-Movie-Awards.html

Wondering now if this was about Kate Hudson...

Jen said...

Rita... I agree. Seems a deliberate emphasis. also, the blind said it wasn't someone we would really associate that behaviour with. Jerremy Renner's ex seems too D list for Lainey to care.
