Blind Item from Twitter

Any guesses as to who is described in the clues below?

by Anonymousreply 11805/25/2020

[quote] Hey girl, I have a cousin in show business and is very famous in her own right and she rubs elbows with the best of them, is friends with a lot of A-listers, she herself lives in a beautiful mansion in Hidden Hills plus, is good friends with Kris... She attends all the award show, she has presented at the shows also and attends many parties and gatherings with the HW elite.... With that said, MM is the talk of tinsel town as a complete joke, none of them can stomach her and feel that only PH is within their caliber.... They all feel that PH is a royal celebrity but, they will not have anything to do with him now, like they had in the past because of MM!!! She told me, MM has been black listed within the industry, with all the studios, agents, PR firms other than the one she has now but, she is not represented by that firm but, only by one of the owners of that firm.... They say in HW, she will never be invited to any function in HW and no one wants to be associated with her nor H right now, as long as he is with her!!! So, that's the word from HW!!! I cannot say who my cousin is because she'll kill me!!! LOL... But, she has been in tons of movies, was just recently on a streaming sitcom with a few other extremely famous ladies... Enough said there... LOL... Buts, she hears all the gossip among the most famous stars and she's about my ages and extremely a very seasoned actress!!! Her Mother is my Mother's sister... and she has been in the industry since she was a young girl... It would blow your mind if I told you who she is but Like I said, she'd be pretty mad if I ousted her... So, that's the latest from LaLaLand!!

by Anonymousreply 805/15/2020

I have no idea if this is real or fake, but I can easily see a situation where people weigh up the positives vs the negatives of socialising with PH and MM in Hollywood.

One look at the video of how PH buttonholed Bob Iger and put him on the spot for a job and I'll bet a few A-listers thought "He better not do that to me if I ever meet him."

The other problem is that the vast majority of the public who are aware of MM and PH have strong opinions on them, mainly negative. Not good for any project in cash-strapped post-Coronavirus Hollywood. On the other hand, there'd be a lot of free publicity if she were to be involved..it's just if it's all negative, it could tank a budding project.

I'm sure someone will bite and offer her something, but I just don't think she'll be swimming in many offers, much less in many A-list offers.

by Anonymousreply 905/15/2020

I'm thinking the leaked footage of Harry pimping Meghan to Bob Iger really turned everyone off. You know they rehearsed the spiel it in the limo all the way to the event. It's obvious she put a gun to his head, too. The thirst of it all. So, so very cringe.

And in spite of how awkward that situation was, they gave her a shot with that elephant documentary....and she sucked. It's really bad.

So yeah. Don't touch the hot stove!

It looks weak and pathetic.

I'm more interested in who the cousin is. Not a lot to go on.

[quote] ... famous in her own right ... is friends with a lot of A-listers, she herself lives in a beautiful mansion in Hidden Hills plus, is [bold]good friends with Kris[/bold]...

She is a former child actor, now popular film actor who was in a recent streaming sit-comedy with some famous ladies. Also, she isn't beneath murder, but lives in Hidden Hills mansion (or large home) and is friends with "Kris." She has presented at award shows. "LaLaLand" probably was not an intentional clue (Emma Stone doesn't fit anyway). Any guesses?

What have been some notable streaming sit-coms as of late with famous women?

"Friends with Kris" means an older woman maybe?

I can completely believe that Hollywood's A-list are still interested in Harry, and feel he is "on their level" and that they might be curious to meet him and to show him off to their friends, but that her presence brings the whole thing down. It means that meeting Harry will likely be an exercise in him trying to get her work, and will be very cringe because of it, and she clearly doesn't know how to behave without drama. She's like a cringe bomb always waiting to go off.

This blind is probably fake (although I'm also interested in who the cousin might be) but the content is absolutely correct. No one would want to associate with these two anymore, I think it's clear that they're an embarrassment more than anything else and "siding" with them is effectively symbolically siding against the royal family and, hence, also the British people.

It's sad that OP has to tiptoe around the issue in his post and subject heading, because Muriel is hysterically deleting H&M threads.

Oprah can't do anything r2, and if she tries to rehabilitate these two she will only damage herself.

by Anonymousreply 3105/16/2020

The person who wrote this is practically illiterate. The actress sounds like it could be Reese. If the main clue is she’s friends with Kris, that muddies it a bit. Kris is “friends” with all sorts of people, like Dr. Phil’s wife and Joe Francis and Kathie Lee Gifford and Ryan Seacrest. Disgusting woman, but very smart.

This “blind” seems like it’s accurate information but presented in a fake way. If that makes sense. I can see that PH would be of interest but his wife is undesirable.

I was trying to think of another celebrity couple but cannot. Like, you’d invite the wife and hope the husband would stay home.

by Anonymousreply 3205/16/2020

We'll never know if it's real or not but I think you'd have to be blind not to see that overall, the status of the Harkles must be quite low in Hollywood.

It's not just that they're an embarrassment, it's also that she is seeking to take roles that the established actresses she is seeking to socialise with would otherwise get. They might be nice to her face, but behind the scenes they will talk shit about her if only to defend their turf. She won't ever be made truly welcome for that reason alone.

by Anonymousreply 3305/16/2020

Emma Stone could kinda fit. LaLaLand, child actor, has been on a streamed kinda comedy series with at least one famous actress recently, "Kris" could equal Kristen Stewart.

Or Dakota Fanning, who was recently in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

"Kris" could be another Kris, not Kris Jenner. The tricky bit is "was just recently on a streaming sitcom with a few other extremely famous ladies", although I can imagine the answer to that could be somewhat stretched.

by Anonymousreply 3405/16/2020

Which Twitter account is this from, OP? So we can estimate the age of the cousin...

by Anonymousreply 3505/16/2020

Loathe as I am ever to agree with anything R11, our resident KGT says, in this case I am forced to state that that BI has all the earmarks of bait sent in to a receptive audience. And I LIKE LSA (believe it or not, I read many of their other threads as well, with particular interest in the comments made on their "colourism" threads).

And, as an academic (ret'd), it interests me to see something crafted to look informal, loose, and off the cuff - when in fact, it's extreme looseness and off-the-cuffness speaks to how carefully it was crafted to look that way. It's like those threatening letters in crime thrillers made of letters cut out from newspapers.

No one who really had that close a connection in the business would send it, just as those stories talking about How Kate Feel About (fill in the blanks) are absurd because we all know that Kate can keep her mouth shut. That's how she got the job, and why she's keeping it, and why HM favours her so much.

It's clickbait.

I don't doubt that the experienced opportunists that litter the canyons of Hollywood recognise Meghan Markle for one of their own before they even shake hands, or that they are shrewd enough to gauge when someone's fifteen minutes are at the bottom of the hourglass - remember when Cumberbatch was the Internet Boyfriend and the hottest thing since talkies? He can't even open a first-run film now, and he is far more talented than Meghan Markle.

So, I call bullshit on this one.

When the Megstans refer to LSA on here they are referring to the "unpopular opinions" threads, which have got around page 4000 now. The unpopular opinions threads are what make the Megstans seethe and seethe.

I'm sure that Meghan has tried to get the 'Unpopular Opinions' threads taken down. It's one of the few places left where people are able to speak freely on the subject of the Harkles.

by Anonymousreply 4405/16/2020

R36, agree with all you wrote, 100%.

No one associated with A Listers, yet aren’t themselves, publicly leaks something where their “cousin” is exposed via a blind item, and potentially assumed to be the actress, even if the guess is wrong.

What people fail to understand is that Hollywood & their friends and relatives, keep their mouth shut. If someone is outed, it’s because they pissed someone powerful off, or because they did something so heinous, everyone abandons them in order to protect their careers and reputations.

Hollywood is a culture where people speak amongst themselves. Even entertainment reporters and writers, understand implicitly to keep their mouths shut.

If you find out something about someone through wide press coverage,, it’s intentional and NOT accidental, 9 times out of 10. You talk shit and hang someone’s dirty laundry out to dry through the tabloids? You’re out.

👆🏼 THIS 👆🏼 is how it works in LaLa-Land, which is why people like Harry Weinstein were not exposed earlier. And Harry Weinstein’s behavior is criminal, yet he was taken down not a minute sooner than when certain people decided that it was time.

If Meghan and Harry write a Royal Tell all that is filled with damaging, embarrassing and real, authentic, personal information about the royal family, rather than whimsical bullshit and fluff, they will definitely be side-eyed in tinsel-town. That’s why I’m not certain that their silly book will be of any revelatory value. It’s probably a fluff piece, in a book format.

One may be the child of one of the most famous women ever, but Princess Diana, they are not. Diana was an exception, and an anomaly, NOT the rule.

Meghan is not an A-Lister, nor has she ever claimed to be, and I’m certain she is aware of this. Not everyone gets to that tiny circle, up at the top. The fact that she got a long running cable series, is more than 98% of people who aspire to break into show business, get. She’s now in her late thirties, and she’s aware her career in tinsel town is pretty much done. That’s not because she is hated, that’s because that how things work for almost all female actresses in Hollywood, who aren’t seasoned, award winning actresses, like Judi Dench, Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, etc.

Hollywood’s “in circle” is TINY, you guys. And I say this for you Brits, who may not be well informed or aware of the culture in H-Town. It’s almost like a similar paradigm to the royal family, yet, as Meghan proved, harder to get into. You cannot get to the top, without being highly profitable in that tiny circle. If someone can create a profitable venue for Meghan to work in, they will. If they decide it won’t make them any money, they won’t. If they need a tax write off, they will throw stuff like voice overs her way. She’s likely to work on the influencer circle, which is NOT to be mistaken NOR EVER conflated with the A-List elite, who were able to consistently open films, win awards, and were either remarkably and genuinely talented at their craft, or weren’t, yet still proved to be highly profitable. Jennifer Aniston is a good example of this, and she is someone I like, as do many in Hollywood who can pull strings. So I’m not attempting to talk shit here. She knows, too. She’s aware she’s no Meryl. But she’s wealthy, liked, and reputable enough to produce content and partner up with Apple, or almost anyone she chooses.

So no, this Blind Item isn’t authentic, and MM MUST understand that if she hasn’t gotten a blockbuster by now, it’s over. Everyone there understands this too, so I don’t get where it is that so many people continue to push out this narrative that MM is under the delusion that she’s about to take off. Her peak was her wedding day. That’s it, it’s over, and she knows this because this is how agents speak to their clients, behind the scenes There are no mincing of words.

by Anonymousreply 4505/16/2020

If this is true then it's all the more important that they high tail it on back to the UK and resume a life that will afford them both the respect they want. Neither of them is going to get that in the US.

IMO, Harry's biggest mistake was not marrying Meghan Markle. It was marrying an American. The fact that she is an American celebrity with a fucked up family makes it all that much worse. She never had a chance here, and neither does Harry. It's only going to get worse for them.

by Anonymousreply 4605/16/2020

P.S., wanted to add the following: I am sometimes, incredibly thick headed and naive, yet not forever, usually, LOL!

And yeah. I’m starting to realize that this was all set up to get Harry out of the UK and the Firm. I obviously am not informed of any particulars or the intention, or the driving force behind it all, but whatever it is, the outcome was and is what Harry wanted. And maybe it really is as simple as him loving his family, but hating the lack of freedom because of who he is and is expected to be publicly. Perhaps he just wanted a more authentic life, without such restrictive conformity.

So yeah. Harry may not have masterminded this whole Megxit thingie, but this was HIS desire, not hers. For whatever known or unknown reasons, HE wanted out, and this is how he got it.

by Anonymousreply 4705/16/2020

R46, I don't think Markle was what could be described as an American celebrity when Harry met her. She played a secondary character among a very large number of actors in a relatively successful but low-key show. The way some people hype Meghan though, it's as though she was Kerry Washington. In the UK, people had never heard of her and I doubt Harry had heard of her before he met her.

by Anonymousreply 4805/16/2020

r46, MM was not a celebrity, so your analogy makes no sense, and also, the most successful Royal marry-in was American Grace Kelly (Until Kate, who I now think might outdo Princess Grace in terms of best marry-in).

You're entirely wrong. Harry's great mistake was in marrying Meghan Markle. And I have no doubt he'll pay for that mistake for the rest of his life.

by Anonymousreply 6005/16/2020

R60 - If you know people who would sell their firstborn to get Meghan and Harry, they're sure taking their time concocting deals to do so.

The problem for Meghan and Harry is that they've got the kind of fame that is based on nothing but a connection to the British Royal Family, a connection that they have so inconveniently severed. What they have left may be enough to get them their 15 minutes, but so far the evidence for durable stardom is weak. She couldn't even drive traffic to the ELEPHANT documentary - she didn't even get good reviews for a voicevoer.

Get them for what? Product endorsements? Names on the Advisory Boards on the letterhead of prestigious foundations and a promise to show up at the Annual Fundraising Gala?

What, really, are they offering in real terms to anyone who "gets" them?

No one will answer the question.

I can understand selling your firstborn for a chance to get Bill Gates as an investor in your new project, or to get Brad Pitt and George Clooney to do a vaudeville act for you fundraiser, or, frankly, to get William and Kate, or Charles and Camilla, at your black-tie fundraiser.

But that frump and her pathetic dimwitted sixth in line (and who knows for how long) dimwit who can't even put his HRH on the invitation?!

I still think, despite the straight talk she must have been given: Meghan IS trying to get A-list acting jobs. Otherwise we wouldn’t be hearing about it. The rumors come from some PR office that’s doing what it’s paid to do.

"Like if I sat down with Brad Pitt and his agent or manager they would want to know who ELSE I represent."

I find this very difficult to believe. First, Brad Pitt and his agent or manager would probably already know some of the people you allegedly represent, which is why they went to you in the first place. They would most likely have a recommendation or contact, I doubt they would just look you up in the Hollywood PR listings.

Secondly, other than the people they know you already represent, I doubt they'd be so discreet as to ask you at a first meeting who else you represent and, quite frankly, if you divulged such personal information about other A-list or even C-list stars, they would definitely decide not to proceed with you.

Sure they're made up r31, but as you say MM is "a disaster in the making", so the content of the blind isn't that off.

I actually think that often there is an element of truth to blinds and that a lot of the surrounding bs is scrambled info to cover up the source or because only half a story is known and the gossips want to put something out there in order to illicit a reaction that could reveal more info.

I can well believe H&M are being treated like poison. I can imagine there will, at some point, be a chat show sit-down, but they have alienated so many and their relations with the BRF are so bad, it will be difficult for anyone in Hollywood to be their "friend". And they're quite obviously a fucked-up mess that is going to implode at some point, nobody wants to be connected with that.

R70, you can have the most expensive and wonderful PR, but sometimes it doesn’t matter or make a difference. There are fawning stories about the Sussexes in People Magazine. The “news” of their food delivery to shut-ins was effectively spread all over the internet and even on CNN. The morning shows praise their surprise appearance on a zoom call. The PR firm is doing their job.

Does this campaign raise the price of their stock? Does it make them seem glamorous or relatable? Do I want to see more of them? NO.

r69 it was a fucking example. You are right someone at Brad's level would probably not even show up for a meeting, the Agent or Manager would hire the PR people or in most cases just use the unit PR if it is a movie.

In larger firms - you are just assigned clients - the A list folks are usually handled by the big-name reps...but a lot of times, Agents and or managers will sit down with their clients and meet with PR firms - a lot of clients are just referred. Word of mouth, reputation, etc.

by Anonymousreply 7605/17/2020

R69, can you PLEASE, for the love of God, stop being such a USELESS CUNT?

You KNOW NOTHING about Hollywood and PR firms in Hollywood. The person who wrote the thing about Brad Pitt, probably means when Brad was starting his career. And yes, actors ask shit like that or say that they know the PR firm represents so and so, because it’s called CHIT CHAT & SMALL TALK. It’s what people do, before getting down to business.

Now, I may have expressed that I believe Harry was the one who exceedingly wanted out of the Firm, however, that doesn’t mean I’m expressing that I dislike him or Meghan. I do NOT dislike them. I love that they had the balls to GTFO of there.

Now, that being said, my assessment of Meghan’s career opportunities are not a personal dig on her. Don’t mistake it as such. I am simply explaining how things work in this town. You, nor I, know NOTHING about whether or not she doesn’t “listen”. You treat her like she’s a 5 year old, who needs to give deference to the adults in the room.

Meghan is not a child. She is an ADULT, and she and her ADULT husband, can do whatever the fuck they want. Neither were born into existence to do your bidding, nor make you happy and pleased with your life. And neither were any of these fucking people, from the Queen, on down the line.

This is a family. Just like any other family out there, they are all probably imbued with complex and even highly dysfunctional family dynamics. Diana exposes all of this to be true, as did Andrew, and his predilection for CHILDREN. Teenaged girls are children by all legal definitions, which is one of the reasons Epstein was arrested by monsters who he knew for most of his life, because they were probably into children too.

And by the way, I can personally guarantee you, that had this pandemic had not intersected with the pandemic we are currently living through, Meghan and Harry would have been, or were already invited to, more A-List events than we can count. Don’t kid yourself. They are most definitely on every one who is any one’s guest lists.

If Meghan really wanted people to like her she could try being humble and develop the ability to laugh at herself. Getting that company to change their advertising when she was young must have really gone to her head because it's hard to understand her excessive self-regard. It's not like she has discovered the cure for cancer or anything really important.

by Anonymousreply 8105/17/2020

R79, are you that weirdo writer, Emily Giffin, or whatever that unhinged sow’s name is? The one obsessed with the royal family and writes books for unhappy, directionless fraus??? You know, the one who posted some insta-story between herself & that unhinged dude who is under the illusion that he’s actually a comic, and almost 100% sucked someone’s dick to get picked up by HBO? You know the sow I speak of; yes? She lives in Atlanta and refers to herself as an “Anglophile”, & has an hideous looking husband, who looks like he, himself, is angry and deeply closeted??? She’s the one who’s insta-story talked shit about Meghan’s Archie video with that talentless twerp who calls himself a comedian. And their shared interests make sense, since she calls herself an “author”, so delusional thinking is obviously one of many things they probably share in common.

Are you this unhappy, unhinged sow? Because you certainly “type” like her.

Listen, bitch: I am not the unhinged one here. I barely keep up with the royals and their bullshit, yet I go to bar for Harry and Meghan, because I am under the impression, that cunts like you, who tear down a family for sport, do so because you think women like ME, biracial, educated, smart, and semi-attractive (I don’t claim to be a centerfold, but that’s not aspirational to me), do so, for the explicit reason of disliking the fact that your demographic is not represented in the choices made by British Royals, such as Harry, and that pisses you off to no end.

Perhaps you are a Brit who is in the Firm or tangentially connected? Well, then, perhaps you are miffed that your demographic is losing relevancy, and you’re not ready to scoot over, and make room for younger, prettier women?

Whatever your motives may be, for consistently persecuting a woman you have no desire to even befriend, because according to all of you Klan Karens, she’s an abject failure in all she attempts, understand the following:

You and your group of likeminded “friends” are seen as dangerous, unhinged stalkers. Bullies, who like the true cowards they are, sit behind a computer screen, bloviating among yourselves, about your shared perceptions regarding the lifestyle choices of strangers. And I take issue with that because this is what has been done to the LBGT community in which you participate with and peripherally, by commentary on this forum.

Who people choose to date, marry, fuck, procreate with or adopt with, is NONE of your fucking business. And if you come HERE to slander two people simply because they became a couple and got married, started a family, and moved to the states, then I suspect that when you’re not online, you are the type of person who is easily persuaded into talking shit and spewing bigotry against the LGBTs as well.

You are a fucking bigot, and a racist. No question. Because there is ABSOLUTELY NO OTHER SENSICAL EXPLANATION, as to why people like YOU, spend hours persecuting people whom you do not personally know. And your deep denial about your deeply entrenched and non self recognized or self identified biases, which fuel your pathological pursuit in this specific pass time, doesn’t magically make your motives invisible or unclear to those who observe you and your lot.

If I think you’re a bigot and a racist, as well as unhappy and unhinged as fuck, it is because there just isn’t any other possibility when all of this is out under a microscope by people who cannot glean justifications for this behavior.

So yes, bitch. I do not think highly of you, and this is the case, because YOU have put yourself out there to be judged by people who looked at every other possibility, before REASONABLY concluding that this is behavior is pretty damned similar to the behavior displayed by abominable persons, called bigots and racists, because what you do, is IDENTICAL to what bigots and racists, also do!!!

You have a few choices: Lie to yourself some more, or change.

We know she feeds a lot of the "friends of Meghan said..." stories to the media herself, perhaps she's been trying out a few early ideas here first to see how they'll fly and this weekend frustration at the fact no one really cares about herany more except for her few remaining crazed stans just got the better of her.

The blind isn’t that outrageous, so I think it’s partly true. And it makes sense. We’ve been saying this forever: without their royal cachet, they lose “value”. They can’t do anything for anybody, now.

And enough little things have escaped that you’d have to be wary of her. She’s messy and vindictive. She’ll plant stories in the press. Remember that thing with the Beckhams? She uses and discards people. She likes to sue people. She can’t be fuckered to write a thank-you note.

Clearly this concept escapes R82.

Who global celebrities marry, fuck, breed, or adopt with is front-page news. It's like saying that Liz Taylor lifting Eddie Fisher and then Richard Burton from their respective spouses is nobody else's business.

(Although most of you infants are probably too young to remember how THOSE stories dominated the headline!).

Just because you hire a PR firm does not mean they govern your life. Big-name clients keep firms to promote them when they need it (moving coming out, oscar season etc..) or to bury stuff they don't want out. Mid-level stars - B list - pay for getting their name out there - monthly status reports on how many articles or pitches you did on their behalf, etc, photoshoots, paid gigs, etc. People who have high-level clients I will say on average work less because their clients only do so much press because they don't have to.

I'd have to think that the Harkles are still a big "get" - I mean, Hollywood people willingly speak to Kanye, so they clearly don't have high standards (or good taste) & H&M are still something of a novelty act. Now a year or 6 months from now when the new car smell wears off & we are still grappling with the COVID economy, there may not be so much good will - particularly if they declare war on the press in the same way they did in the UK or start some other drama that rubs people the wrong way.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle given a decade to pay for Frogmore at £18,000 every month

Greg Hurst

Monday May 18 2020, 12.01am BST, The Times

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are repaying the costs of renovations to Frogmore Cottage in instalments that may take more than a decade, it emerged yesterday.

The couple agreed to meet the bill for refurbishing the grade II listed property near Windsor Castle, intended as their marital home, as part of the deal struck with senior members of the royal family and Buckingham Palace officials in January.

Royal accounts published last year showed that £2.4 million was spent on renovating the house, paid for from the sovereign grant. The total cost is likely to be higher because the figure does not include work that was started in the next financial year.

Harry and Meghan paid an additional sum for fittings and fixtures of their choice beyond a budget allocated by royal officials.

Originally the couple appeared to assume that they could continue to use Frogmore Cottage, which was a wedding gift from the Queen, rent-free despite their wish to become “financially independent”. In their statement in January announcing their wish to “carve out a new progressive role”, they said they wanted to “balance their time” between the United Kingdom and north America to support the Queen, despite stepping back as senior royals.

Under the negotiations that followed the couple were obliged to pay rent for the cottage, which remains their British base, and “to repay sovereign grant expenditure for the refurbishment”. The arrangements for doing so were not disclosed.

The Mail on Sunday reported that the Sussexes, who have relocated to a rented home in California, last month began paying £18,000 monthly in enhanced rent for Frogmore Cottage, which includes a contribution towards the renovation costs above a commercial rent. Based on that rate, repayment of the £2.4 million capital sum alone would take 11 years, without allowing for interest or rent.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman would not comment on the arrangement but confirmed that it was always intended that the Sussexes would repay the cost of building works to the house.

The Prince of Wales is understood to have previously financed Harry’s official duties from revenue from his Duchy of Cornwall estate and investments.

Both Harry and Meghan, a former actress, have private wealth. Their former status as senior members of the royal family prevented them from carrying out commercial activities but it remains to be seen how the couple use their newfound freedom to earn an independent income.

Frogmore Cottage, set in Home Park close to Windsor Castle, was previously divided into five staff cottages and was in a state of disrepair when it was given to the couple to be restored as a single family home.

Harry and Meghan moved in only in April last year shortly before the birth of their son, Archie. Among the cottage’s historical features is graffiti on a glass window pane in the front porch where, in the days when it was used as a royal guest cottage, a tsar of Russia is said to have scratched his name with a diamond ring.

Blind item is silly, but it isnt hard to believe that the hostesses of the most covered parties in her age group, Goop or Reese or maybe Jennifer Aniston are a bunch of mean girls who will not be upstaged by MM.
