Rosie may have been here a long time ago, but asked on her blog whether she comes here about 5 yrs ago she said "never!" That makes sense to me, most of the comments would piss her off. She's like Whoopi and thinks celebrities are sacred, while they get ripped apart here. If she ever comes here, it's as an anonymous troll, probably angrily defending herself and other celebs.
R6 & 8, it's my understanding Josh was a marginally famous drag queen who also wrote a few books. He had a following here 5 or more years ago and has thankfully disappeared.
Everybody 'famous' here has moved on in short order because they've been cunted out. Either that or they don't identify.
R9 I take it you do not watch amazing race or the Beekman boys reality shows.
John Wesley Shipp actually responded to a thread that was devoted to him.
He confirmed this on his Facebook page
Thread at link below
Aung San Suu Kyi
R12, JWS only came here because he stumbled across a link on Google whilst Googling himself. He's not a regular.
I am sure he's come back for more.
Nobody with an actual life would ever come here! Datalounge is just for bitter chaps with waaaaay too much time on their hands who still use words like "frau" and "Oh, Mary" all the time.
R13 is correct. You bitches made house arrest a little less...boring.

LOL! All actors, in a nutshell
You guys don't have google alerts set up for yourselves?
Not being an insane narcissist myself: no, I don't, r20.
I'm convinced Craig Ferguson is here. I've read things, odd phrases or expressions I've never heard before, and then hours later the same things pop out of Ferguson's mouth.

Is that you kirker?
Joy Behar (or her writers) must read DL. I swear I've seen some of our obscure threads discussed as topics on her show. (She even discussed the M vs. G feud.)
[quote] Who are the famewhores on DL?
Fixed that for you.
Nikki Finke came by one night, and proved it was her by previewing something she was about to post.
I swear Brett Easton Ellis is on here. Sometimes late at night he'll be tweeting and there will simultaneously be posts in the film/Oscar threads that sound just like him. Sometimes I suspect he is the M troll.
I am somewhat famous, but would never tell you people who I am. One, you would never believe me, and two, it would be a waste of my time. I enjoy my anonymity on here. That is one of the best things about the internet. Being able to mingle with people without the usual sycophantic bullshit.
r 28, give up the dish... gossip please, who have you fucked that is somewhat equally as somewhat famous?
Jonathan Taylor Thomas
Hmmm you had sex with JTT? When?
Michael Musto used to post here occasionally. He probably still reads it to get a pulse on what people are gossiping about. Gossip is his job so I'm sure he's still reading DL regularly, and maybe posting anonymously sometimes, but I haven't seen him post with his name for many years.
I'm also sure Michelangelo Signorile reads it to get ideas for his radio show.
Well, I think we can narrow down our guesses @ R28 considerably just by considering only those "somewhat famous" people who would know how to use "sycophantic" in a sentence.
Let's play "What's My Line"
R28, are you male or female?
R28, what kind of career do you have? And if you're an entertainer, what medium do you typically work in?
At least John Wesley Shipp signed his name here.
Has anyone else done that?
Jake Gyllenhaal here, any questions boys?
Who are you, again?
There is an actress friend of mine who posts here sometimes, I won't say her name because there is a possibility she'll come across this thread and while she wouldn't mind me saying this, she wouldnt be happy with me outing her (which id never do anyway)
She started posting here to whittle down the time between takes, first came here by google alerting her name. (never told her about it previously because I didn't think she'd like the bitchiness and dark humor, but she really took to it)
Anyway, she's one of us, but not out publicly. That's as much as I'll say because I love her and respect our friendship.
Come back somewhat famous person! I was only joking.
Gyllenhaal, I want to be your sugar daddy. I don't want sex, I'm too old to besmirch your beautiful body, I just want to make you happy.
I am told I am doing that by leaving you alone, but....
Thomas Roberts posted here a couple of times five or six years ago.
Also, don't forget about D'Arcy, a.k.a. Jeannette Walls.
Oh wow, when did Jeannette post?
^ I think it was sometime in 2004 or 2005.
I will second the poster who thinks BEE is here. I wonder if he's ever gotten W&W.
r22, I'm surprised at Craig Ferguson - wouldn't it be more likely one of his writers is here? Or were you picking up on idiosyncratic things that would only come from Craig's mouth?
r22, I feel the same way. There are things, for example, I've laughed at on American Dad and Family Guy that were discussed on threads in DL (and more obscure references)
the radio folks at Sirius OutQ

Ann Romney, queen of google alerts being mailed to her BlackBerry.
The poster said [italic]somewhat famous.[/italic] It's probably just Rafalca.
Some of the old timers, now dead, were regulars in 2002-2005.
Why would ANYONE on DL be a sycophant to Ann Romney? To get a job at one of her husband's companies only to be fired months later? I mean, really.
[quote]I will second the poster who thinks BEE is here. I wonder if he's ever gotten W&W.
That would require him to have some wit or wisdom, so, not likely.
r56, care to name names?
I always suspected that Whoopi comes here.
r28 If you are RDJ, please answer why SJP likes to be with gay men?
I think Paul Theroux has been here and may check threads and posts regularly. I read one post on a thread about England and it sounded remarkably like the writing in his travel books. I also think Angus T. Jones at least read the threads about himself a few weeks ago when he was trying to discourage people from watching the show that made him rich at the tender age of 10 (I think he's 19 or 20 now). Someone mentioned Jimmy Carter reading and posting here but I would tend to doubt it--he's too much of a Christian to do that but I may be wrong. I definitely wonder if Obama or Biden or anyone in the government reads the stuff that is posted here and may even post something himself.
[quote]I think Paul Theroux has been here and may check threads and posts regularly.
Oh, that's my fault -- I quoted him in here and he followed from a google search.
our very own James Franco!
I used to love this place, back when it was interesting.
And when my career was flourishing.
A clue, especially for people like Paul Theroux, is a well thought out post, well written, with no misspellings and good grammar. Given the vast majority of poorly written posts here, it is sometimes easy to tell if someone "famous" has dropped by.
Actually, we can change this to which people steal their material from DL - I can think of two: Andy Towle and that Boy Culture dude.
Anyone Really famous or what???
Anne Hathaway MUST post here ... otherwise why would we have so many threads about her? She's obviously just trying to keep her name out there as much as possible.
you will NEVER know!
R61, how can you possibly not already know all about faghags like Sarah Jessica Parker? Haven't you been friends with many of them ever since elementary school? It would be a dull world, especially for us bisexuals, if it wasn't filled with beautiful faghags. But there will never be another like Elizabeth Taylor. She was married to, had affairs with, and friendships with so many homosexual and bisexual men that nobody could possibly name them all. But there are so many others---Liza Minelli, Eartha Kitt, Natalie Wood, Joanne Carson, Joanne Woodward, Cher Bono, etc.
Big Fat Queer
A writer for the Simpsons used to come here, but I hesitate to mention it.
Sarah Jessica Parker: I think that it's hard to deny that there is this wonderful search, this endeavor, for love. There's an emotional ingredient that when I talk to people in the gay community -- the clothing is fun, it's the cherry on the sundae, it's the souffle -- but I really think it's this ability to articulate emotion, embarrassing and candid and intimate and a humorous way of observing our emotional journeys that a lot of my gay friends really, really love. And I think they're really comfortable saying that and I think it's taken maybe the straight community a little bit longer. At the luggage carrier they [straight men] used to say [under their breath], "I love your show." Or, "My girlfriend or my wife forces me [to watch]." They seem to volunteer more freely that occasionally they even watch it on their own
Does Grace Coddington post here? Princess von Furstenberg-Diller?
Josh Kilmer-Purcell is a regular poster here as he admitted in his first book.
