1. This month marks the 9th anniversary for this gay couple. 9 years that this B list mostly television actor who is one of the very few actors to continue having a career after this hit network teen type show went off the air a few years back has hid his boyfriend. That is a long, long time.
2. This couple is a solid B list. I call them a couple but they split up shortly after a movie was filmed. Not a huge movie by any stretch, but it did feature an Academy Award nominee/winner or two. It starred an A list mostly movie actor. He has always kind of explored both sides of the fence when it comes to relationships, but does not generally hook up with men like this B list mostly movie actor who has a memorable name, but you would be hard pressed to identify all of his movies. They all kind of seem the same. His ex-wife has had a more varied career. Also B list, mostly in movies she has shown a greater range of characters. The wife was on the set and walked into the trailer of her husband and found her husband and the A list actor in full on sex mode. By the time the movie had wrapped, our actress had filed for divorce. Must have not been too big a shock though considering what happened later. I had to look up the movie because I never knew the A list actor had done anything remotely like this movie. Shows you how popular it was.
3. At a recent party, two guests were speaking about this almost A list mostly movie actor who has been in a couple of the biggest movie hits ever and has a very unusual name.
"I thought he was gay."
"No, not gay. Every once in a while he will go out with a woman and even have sex with her."
Well, usually sex with her. Lots of times he just will make her sit and watch him while he inserts things into his butt. He is big on pleasing himself like that."
4. This former B list mostly television actress who is foreign born and starred on one of the biggest network shows ever has not been as fortunate with her new love as she was with her former actor boyfriend. He enjoyed her golden showers.

1, Mario Lopez?
I'm trying to imagine why this man needs a woman around while he puts things up his butt.
"Let me see your lipstick. Ahhh. Got a hairbrush?"
r3, sexual acts do not define sexual orientation. Some men get off on pegging and they like women to participate or watch.
1. James van der Beek
Who is his boyfriend, R5?
Not JVB,r5. His other cast mates have been successful in their own right. I was thinking Zachary from saved by the bell.
[quote]1, Mario Lopez?
For Christ's sake, look up in the dictionary PUSSY HOUND and Lopez' picture will be there. plus it says mostly television actor and Lopez has only done television.
R7, you dismiss R5, and then name an actor from a show that also has other cast mates that have been successful in their own right, as well.
CDAN says #1 is Ben Mackenzie, makes sense.
Good call, R10. Can someone restate #2 in a clearer way?
Is # 3 Leo? He does have an unusual name.
1. Ben McKenzie
R11, here is my attempt to restate #2:
A B-list actor with a recognizable name from mostly forgettable movies stars in a major Hollywood production starring an A-list actor, presumable one of the 2 Academy Award winners/nominees that are in the film -- and the movie is an unusual flick for the A-list actor, whose known for different kinds of films. Anyway, the B-list actor's wife, also B-list, but with a more varied career, catches her husband and the A-list actor having sex when she walks into hubby's trailer. She promptly files for divorce.
ENTERTAINMENT LAWYER 03/03 **#2**
This former almost A list actor who now does mostly movies, but got all of his fame and chances at headlining movies from a television show is set to come out. He has always stayed in the closet because he was afraid it would harm his chances of getting leads in romantic comedies, but no one is hiring him anyway. You wouldn't think it by looking at him, but people who have seen his peen say it is the largest they have ever seen. One of his former co-stars who is now an almost A list movie actress once saw it and said she could not believe it was real and thought the prop guys had done some Boogie Nights magic.
R15, isn't that Topher Grace's dick you're talking about?
Yes, r15, there was already a thread about that BI and it was pretty much determined to be Topher Grace.
I can't imagine that Topher Grace would ever be described as almost A list, even when That 70's Show was at its most popular.
who is the boyfriend
I can't even understand #2.
1. Ben MacKenzie
2. Kenneth Branagh, Emma Thompson, Keanu Reeves (Much Ado About Nothing)
3. Orlando Bloom
r8 = Mario Lopez
4. Joan Collins and Warren Beatty
Good guesses r21
The Branagh story has been around for a while: [NationalEnquirer 2011] Which Oscar-winning actress caught her then-husband in the middle of a steamy gay encounter with his film’s young American co-star? The British couple separated soon after filming ended and divorced two years later. The couple has since remarried, but the young stud has never wed. Who are they? Kenneth and Emma, Keanu
Young copycat Kenneth was obviously hoping to emulate my dear husband in [italic]every[/italic] way.
Number one can't be JVB, Michelle Williams is by far the most successful person from that show.
I have a Keanu story. I had a friend who was an ex heroin addict back in 98-99. We met at an AA meeting in San Diego and became good friends. She had worked in Hollywood as a line producer and had a couple small, lame acting gigs. After we had been friends for awhile she told me that she used to date Keanu. This was I think after the Matrix but not at the height, I never saw matrix and don't care. Anyhow, she would tell me stories about how they would do smack together all the time, including using a turkey baster to put it up their asses. They broke up, blah, blah, she was hiking one day and fell, rushed to the hospital and he came to visit her and that was the last time she saw him. He started dating the girl who died after that. Anyhow, I had no reason to disbelieve her, she could tell I was not a huge fan (never saw Matrix, don't care, etc.) so I don't know why she'd throw his name around and not someone else's. That's my Keanu story.
Keanu definitely seems addict and/or HIV. I loved him in that Diane Keaton film with Jack Nicholson (Something's Gotta Give).
I don't why, but I get the impression R28 doesn't care about "The Matrix".
[quote]Ben has remained friends with fellow actors and one time O.C. co-stars Adam Brody and Paul Wesley. Ben adopted a rescue dog found by a friend in 2007, a brown and white pit bull named Oscar, after a character in The Odd Couple. McKenzie has dated various unidentified women, keeping very low-profile relationships.
So many people walking into their spouses' sex romps in the history of gossip art! Doesn't anyone ever use locks or hotel rooms?
"This month marks the 9th anniversary for this gay couple. 9 years that this B list mostly television actor who is one of the very few actors to continue having a career after this hit network teen type show went off the air a few years back has hid his boyfriend. That is a long, long time."
Obviously, both Mario Lopez and James Van Der Beek are incorrect answers, if only because their shows went off the air a lot more than "a few years back." Learn to read, people.
Also, while I wouldn't be very surprised to learn that Mario Lopez is gay (or bi), I kinda doubt, given his history, that he has been half of a gay couple for nine years.
I think the first is John Travolta.
Before he was mentioned as the answer to another BI I though Topher Grace was the answer to #1.
R35 - pretty much everyone from That 70's Show went onto other acting gigs. Topher actually seems the least successful.
#1 is old. It's Neil Patrick Harris before he came out. He was a teen star only to continue on his current show and is B list. Now he is out of the closet.
NPH and David have been together since 2004 - 9 years.
He hasn't hidden him all those years, R38.
'Doogie Howser' was not a "teen" show. He and his best friend/neighbor were the only teens in it and the show was about everything but the teen high school experience.
Moreover, NPH has been out since November 2006, and together with David Burtka for exactly 9 years. So, unless the BI is REALLY old (as in over 9 years old to eliminate Burtka from the equation) and NPH had a prior boyfriend with whom he spent over 9 years, the math simply doesn't add up.
Having tricked with Ben McKenzie, I'd say he's a decent guess for #1 (yes, I'm a man)
Tell us more! How was it? How did you guys hookup?
#3: Shia LaBeef
There have been very consistent rumors about Ben McKenzie's sexuality since the OC was on the air and he has never seemed to actually be linked with women. I have no problem believeing it.
Don't forget the Datalounge rumor about McKenzie hooking up with Falcon Studios porn star Kane O'Farrell while OC was still running.
[quote]yes, I'm a man
Yes, we know sweetie. No woman would ever say she "tricked" with someone.
[quote]No woman would ever say she "tricked" with someone.
I had a roommate in the '70s, OTOH...
She just wanted to be one of the boys.
No way can #2 be Ken/Emma/Keanu. None of us would be hard-pressed to name his movies. The Matrix, anyone?
I think the blind means that we would be hard pressed to name any of Kenneth's movies.
[quote]That is a long, long time.
Something tells me this is a clue...
R50 Linda Ronstadt?
[quote]I think the blind means that we would be hard pressed to name any of Kenneth's movies.
Thou whoreson, senseless villain!
It's kind of ironic how Emma (if true) dumped Kenneth for being closeted and creeping around when she won an Emmy for superbly playing a closeted (in many ways) actress on "Ellen".
I don't believe this is Kenneth/Emma/Keanu. The timing isn't right. According to Wiki, K&E were divorced in 95. Much Ado... was released in 93, so that's not the quick divorce cited in the BI. Frankenstein was released in 94, and that's where Kenneth hooked up with Helena BC, which seems the real cause of divorce.
Ben McKenzie is a perfect fit for #1. Van Der Beek isn't because ALL of his co-stars have not only achieved much greater success than him, but also married high-profile fellow actors: Tom Cruise, Diane Kruger and, of course, Heath Ledger.
I'm not buying Branagh/Thompson/Keanu for #2. Why on earth would Emma get back together with him after catching him having sex with a guy? Also, I've never bought the Keanu-is-gay rumors, for reasons like R28's. Being extremely private about your sex life doesn't necessarily mean a celebrity is gay, plus people seem to forget that Keanu was in a LTR with a woman who died in a car wreck while pregnant with his child.
Emma filed for divorce in 1993 and then it took two years to settle in 1995. Have you met my charming protege, Tom Hiddleston?
I'm available Kenny, call me.
Kenny's got no upper lip, whatsoever. Dealbreaker in my book.
Emma ended up with the absolutely gorgeous Greg Wise. I'd say she has nothing to complain about.
Who the hell is Ben MacKenzie? I never heard of him and he's a B lister?
The Branagh thing fits except for the absurdity of writing it as a blind item a full DECADE after it occurred.
R59 He is the kid on the OC that looks like Russell Crowe. Though I think he is about 5'4".
A decade? Try two! But it's done in a sort of you wouldn't guess what really happened then as opposed to the official story" kind of way
For what it's worth, I like to share these BIs on Facebook along with the DL's most popular guesses; I shared #1 and the fact that DL was saying it was Ben McKenzie; a friend responded with "You're right; a friend of mine knew him in college." My friend works in DC with the Navy; McKenzie majored in Foreign Affairs and Economics at the Univ of Virginia.
IMDb lists his height at 5'9".
R64 5'9" is the official height of every short guy online.
Regarding #3: Keanu Reeves has been in some of the biggest hits of all times, has a very unusual name, has slid off the A-list, and is as sexually ambiguous as they come.
And we have a DL story saying he likes to put heroin turkey basters up his ass.
When Keanu was hot, I would totally watch him stick things up his butt and pleasure himself.
Which golden boy news anchor who the network is grooming for this big seat on the evening night is so frightened that it will be discovered that his a gay that he has started to date women? Scared that Anderson Cooper talk show was cancelled after he came out and his CNN show ratings are dropping fast, the tortured guy has decided he will stay in the closet for ever.
Seems like ABC or CBS since Brian Wms is solid for many years.
Number 1 is probably Ben Schenkkan. I hope he finds happiness and can come out completely.
R69, Seth Meyers from SNL, obviously.
And as for Kenneth, Emma, Keanu, I agree. Decades later doesn't really feel like breaking news.
Anderson Cooper has a ratings problem because he's working on shows that are out of his element. He great on hard hitting news but he's terrible at fluff. I have no idea why he can't see that.
Jeff Glor is the gay anchor being groomed for the evening news.
Neil's previous boyfriend was Max Van Essen - Broadway actor recently seen as Magaldi in Evita, and son of the former NYC fire chief (who was on the news a lot after 9/11).
I love Jeff Glor, R74. Is his wedding ring from his marriage to another boy?
Jeff Glor is married to a woman and has a kid. I have seen them walking with their stroller in the neighborhood.
That's what I thought. Though I could see him in "gay." Where do you live, R77, the W. 70s?
R69 is David Muir.
The News Anchor from that blind item is DL fave David Muir!
David Tyler Moore makes muir sense, R79.
5 pages and not a single guess for #4 ?
Whomever guessed Seth Myers as being groomed for a big seat on night time TV is right on the money.
He is the news anchor on SNL and the big seat he's being groomed for is that currently being occupied by Jimmy Fallon.
I have no idea whether the triangle alluded to is Keanu, Em and Ken or not. What I do KNOW is that the two men were sexually involved(it wasn't love) on the set and on "off day" motorcycle jaunts through Italy during the shoot. I don't know whether Em was clueless to her husband's crush at the time, but hell, who would't have done Keanu then??? I sure would have played in the trailer.
I don't think Seth Meyers is gay.
Meyers is a pussy hound, or so I've heard.
Meyers and Andy Samberg were a down-low item for a long time while they were both on SNL. Samberg has gotten married after he left the show, and Seth suddenly has a girlfriend.... just sayin'
You may be correct about Meyers, but I became a bit suspicious when he mentioned "his girlfriend" in so many interviews during this last 10 days.
It reminded me of Jonathan Rhys-Whatever.
As a woman flight attendant with pretty damn good 'dar, I have gotten some subtle pings during his career, but I concede they were hardly loud pings.
Ben Schenkman's straight.
How do you put smack up your ass with a turkey baster? i mean a turkey baster is pretty big, compared to a needle...i'm sorry but i'm not familiar with drugs.
Well, i read Geffen's auto bio many years ago and he said that one of his bfs (at that time) looked a lot like Keanu, that's why everyone thought he was dating Keanu.
I wonder if he's clean now.
Ben's parents are wonderful, unpretentious people. His dad is a hero for liberal causes down here in Texas. His mom is beautiful and charming. Ben is lucky to have them and his brothers and such a great family. If he is gay I am sure they are - and have always been - very supportive. If he is gay and decides to come out his family will be behind him 100%.
So, is Ben McKenzie's boyfriend in the business? Do you think he'll ever come out? I never watched "The O.C.," but I did see "Junebug" (where I thought he was marvelous, much better than the overrated Amy Adams) and the first season of "Southland."
I never picked up a ping from Myers until I saw him on Watch What Happens Live where he was very clearly if not gay then gay-ish.
Pam Anderson for the peeing actress
I hope David Muir is not being groomed to take over for Diane Sawyer. He's too much of a lightweight. And he mimics Brian Williams posture and delivery. Plus his nasal voice makes me want to give him a tissue.
david muir is ok, nothing special. i always thought that other guy, can't remember his name but he was injured while on assignment in Iraq (head injury), took time off etc, was gonna take over from Diane Sawyer. I used to call him dracula coz of his eyes. He's barely on nowadays...
r95, Bob Woodruff not only had head injuries, but brain injury as well (from which he's recovered fairly well after some serious expression and word memory problems in the late 2000's).
What with all his struggle (and considerable loss of his looks) I DID NOT know he was a contender... but he's most definitely as straight as they come.
Dermot Mulroney-Catherine Keener for the couple in #2, with RDJ as the A list actor on the set of Zodiac.
How would it be unusual for RDJ to have appeared in a movie like Zodiac?
What is the attribution for these blind items? Where is the link to their original source(s)?
Seems to me they're just made up by some DL poster without any confirmation they are real blind items from a reputable source. ESPECIALLY the David Muir one.
So let's have some links to where these came from, OK OP and friend?
