Blind Items

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." "Oh, ok." 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.

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 2703/30/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 2803/30/2013

Keanu definitely seems addict and/or HIV. I loved him in that Diane Keaton film with Jack Nicholson (Something's Gotta Give).

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.

by Anonymousreply 3903/31/2013

'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.

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".

by Anonymousreply 5303/31/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 5403/31/2013

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.

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.

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.

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."
