Page six blind items

1. Which married and straight entertainer has just reached a huge settlement with a secret male lover who threatened to tell the world about their sexual affair?

2. What top designer is rumored to start every morning with a stiff Bloody Mary that includes "just a whisper" of tomato juice? The daily morning drink leaves the designer wasted by noon.

Maybe Hugh Jackman for #1?

Gee 1 could be anybody. I was going to say Travolta but i'm sure that wouldn't be the first time hes had to do that.

by Anonymousreply 109/23/2013

I'll just note the the wording of #1 only identifies the gender of one of the parties. And it identifies the married entertainer as "straight." Only a female would be straight and have a male lover.

Slight-of-hand misdirection.

Ah true!

Well pfht that makes it even more difficult. Blinds aren't fun when there are absolutely no clues!

It does say entertainer so now its not even just actresses but also singers etc too ugh

"I'll just note the the wording of #1 only identifies the gender of one of the parties."

It's pretty clear that the "straight" is supposed to be ironic and that this is about a gay guy. If it was about a straight female they would just say "lover" not "male lover" - it would be implied that the lover is male since straight people always presume heterosexuality.

agree with R4, if it's an actress, they will write it like this "... with a secret lover who threatened to tell the world about HIS sexual affair with the starlet"

by Anonymousreply 509/23/2013

If the subject of #1 is a man, then obviously the adjective "straight" should be in quotation marks.

Or is Page Six that illiterate?

by Anonymousreply 609/23/2013

R6, it's not a question of illiteracy; there are self-deluded but (at least grammatically) literate people who believe that there are straight men who have sex with other men.

How the fuck is anyone suppose to guess that? Pointless.

Here's a tricky blind item: "this starlet has a taste for drugs." Ooooooh! Who could it be?

by Anonymousreply 1009/24/2013

#2 could be Rachel Zoe, if you consider her a top designer.

by Anonymousreply 1209/24/2013

Wouldn't be surprised if she were able to get wasted off of one Bloody Mary, she doesn't weigh much and is short

by Anonymousreply 1309/24/2013

They label number one as an entertainer and talk about a "huge" settlement. Singer, dancer, actor, closeted mo Hugh Jackman.

by Anonymousreply 1409/24/2013

Calvin Klein looks positively pickled. It could be him.

Or is it La Orangina, a.k.a. Michael Kors?

r10 nailed it. Blind items should be banned from now on Datalounge. So obnoxious and a relic of the closet.

by Anonymousreply 1609/24/2013

MUST. CONTROL. EVERYTHING. Y'ALL.

by Anonymousreply 1709/24/2013

R11, you deluded simpleton, men who have sex with other men are not straight, no matter what you try to tell yourself.

by Anonymousreply 1809/24/2013

Chupa Zoe is pregnant so probably not her.

What about Zac Posen - he seems l like he needs a good drink to take the edge off of his cuntiness.

Many blind items have nothing at all to do with anyone's sexuality. I fail to see how those are relics of the closet. Perhaps you need to broaden your perspective.

There was a woman who used to hang out in front of Zabar's, carrying on about how "Porn Degrades Women!" I tried to explain that women had nothing to do with any porn that might interest me. Arguably, porn degrades the reader/viewer, but assuming that it's one gender or the other is absurd. Similarly, assuming that all blind items are veiled because of misgivings about sexuality is preposterous.

1. Hugh Jackman

2. Vera Wang

Could 1 be Matt Damon about whom there was a rumor that he kept a boy on the side in Miami when he lived there?

by Anonymousreply 2209/24/2013

R18, you pompous twit, I never claimed that men who have sex with men are "straight". I referenced the Kinsey Scale. Sexuality isn't always either/or.

I'm not "trying to tell myself" anything. I believe in science. And I've been out in the world having sex. With other humans. No Kinsey 0s, obviously, but it's still very easy to validate the range of behavior.

Are you a Republican? That would certainly explain why you think that your personal opinion trumps scientific research.

by Anonymousreply 2309/25/2013

R23, your little rant might be more justifiable if you used the scale correctly.

The Kinsey Scale has nothing to do with the concept of straightness as identity. It's behavior oriented, which is why sexologists today say it is incomplete and not useful to this discussion.

No one doubts that there are some men who mostly have sex with men have sex with men occasionally. The question of how to classify those men or how they identify is a different discussion.

As for science, you using your sex life to "validate" a premise is exactly what Kinsey did and why a lot of his "science" is considered tainted and flawed.

Do a little research yourself.
