Lainey - She pays for friends

Sorry for the delay.  There was a new Lainey riddle June 17 -

She pays for friends

Since this is coming off a Taylor Swift post, let me clarify off the top now: this is not about Taylor Swift. Or anyone who hangs out with Taylor Swift – at least not yet. You need to go more down market.
At the beginning of her career, this one did have friends. They’d room together, audition together. And then, one by one, all the friends slowly, carefully stepped away from the crazy. And the sabotage. Once, before a meeting, she told a friend of hers that she was happy for her that she was reading for a part, because it meant that the producers were looking for someone “plain” and that she totally deserved that opportunity to shine. You remember the gossip urban legend about Gwyneth Paltrow seeing the script for Shakespeare In Love on Winona Ryder’s coffee table? Well, this is real life. This one would obsessively stay on top of all the jobs her friends were up for and ride along too. Then, if the opportunity came up, she’d backstab the friends’ skills, talent, commitment, even on occasions when she wasn’t even right for the role. For her, it was unthinkable that anyone else make it before she did. When she did finally make it, although she wasn’t the first choice for her now-hit show, the paranoia about what she’d done to others took over. She accused them of talking sh-t about her and demanded to see their emails. She’d invite them to parties but then piss on them in the bathroom for using her to get face time with industry executives. She’s spread rumours about the prettiest of her friends – they were on drugs, they were unclean – to make sure that they’d never overshadow her. So it’s no surprise that there are none left. The only constant in her life is her partner who she keeps from everyone else because she doesn’t want them moving in on her territory.
But lately she’s been noticing that the gossip media focuses on friendships – not just Taylor Swift but Gwyneth and Reese and Jennifer Aniston and the family that Kanye West married into …everyone in Hollywood has their own club. She wants to be part of a club. No one wants her to be in their club. She had to buy her club. She’s paid 3 or 4 women, none of them with her level of recognition, to start hanging out with her. So when you see her at dinner, surrounded by women as she’s leaving the restaurant? If they show up on Instagram and Twitter? Those people are literally employees. Until of course they become too popular.

Top suspect:Kaley Cuoco

I'm going with Kaley Cuoco.

Dana said...

Kaley Cuoco was my first guess too but the comment about the partner being her only constant doesn't seem to fit...

Penny Lane said...

What a sad woman this is...

MommyWriter said...

Lea Michele?

Bootsie said...

Emma Roberts

This article posted on Daily Mail right before Lainey's BI. I would go with the Kaley Uoco guess. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-3121283/Kaley-Cuoco-seen-laughing-friends-girls-night-out.html

Can we talk about the Ben Affleck blinds Lainey put in the break up announcement? I am wondering if the affair she is alluding to is with Gal Gadot, Wonder Woman, which would topple the DC house of cards that includes a joker (Ben is shooting Suicide Squad).

Andrew said...

Kaley Cuoco's big break was over 10 years ago on 8 Simple Rules. Not Big Bang. This blind makes it sound like her current gig is when she finally made it. Doesn't work for Kaley in my opinion.

Hi,

There's a new blind today, 'His Biggest Problem'.

Every Other Generation said...

Jessica Alba

I know it doesn't fit with the clues, but the first person I thought of was katherine heigl!

LisaLuck said...

Throwing out some names since we don't have a strong lead yet. I wish Lainey would give a clue!

Lea Michele, Dianna Agron, Lucy Hale, Ashley Benson, Nina Doberov, Hilary Duff.

Has she ruled anyone out?

Jean - Librarian said...

LeAnn Rhimes? If you can count her reality show as a hit show.

Ride along too hints at Cuoco though because of the Kevin Hart film Wedding Einger that she just did...

MD1979 said...

January Jones?

Sarah said...

I like Kaley Cuoco for this. An instagram FULL of fun with friends photos. Heigl on the other hand doesn't bother. It's a lot of hear, a bit of her family and one particular friend, and sometimes, colleagues.

Dana said...

There was a similar blind buried in the Smutty Shout Outs on Friday

Lainey's post ...March 9, 2016. "Alicia Post Oscar". AT the end of paragraph 1, she comments "This is a CLUE!". Is that post meant to connect us to this blind?

Ken & Jordan Lukens said...

Yesterday's (April 4, 2014) smutty shout-outs had a photo captioned, "Oh look Kaley Cuoco got a squad".

Ken & Jordan Lukens said...

Oops! Smutty social media!

EG said...

Definitely not Kaley Cuoco. Like someone said before, her big break was 8 Simple Rules. And her group of friends have been the same and been around forever. I can't remember their names but it's--Mel ( a non-famous person), hailey duff, lacey something-the one from Mean Girls, one of the blonde girls from the bachelorette, and two wives of tennis players (and others, I'm sure, but just naming the common ones)
