13Blind Item: Which Actress Threw A Hissy Fit Over Not Winning An Oscar?

Well, this is embarrassing. According to this blind item, one of the ladies who was nominated for an award last night counted her eggs before they hatched, and then when none of her eggs actually hatched, she pulled that classic high school move of skipping off to the bathroom with your BFF to cry it out. What a Debbie Downer, huh?

From Blind Gossip:

It must be difficult sitting there in front of billions of people waiting for your name to be called. It must be even more difficult when it isn’t. This actress did a good job pretending to be happy for the winner of this award last night, but behind the scenes was a different story.

She was seen in a corner of the bathroom being consoled by a friend for her loss. While she was not wailing or screaming in a dramatic fashion, there were definitely some tears and some nose blowing going on. One of them was also saying, “It’s not fair… it’s not fair!” although we honestly don’t know if those words were uttered by the actress or the friend who was helping her. The good news is that she did manage to pull it together enough to attend more than one party during the evening… plus there’s always next year.

Who could it be?

A lot of people are guessing Viola Davis, who was nominated for Best Leading Actress for her role in The Help. Many people thought she was a shoo-in for the award, and many people were upset that she lost to Meryl Streep. Personally, I really, really don’t think it’s Viola. Granted, I don’t know that much about her, but from what I have seen, she seems way too classy and gracious to pull something like this.

Lots of people are also guessing that Rooney Mara could be the actress throwing the fit, and I like that guess much better. She was also nominated for Best Leading Actress, but from what I gathered, pretty much no one thought she would win. However, she does think she’s such a gift to the entertainment industry, and she often has the attitude that she’s too good for all of these horrid films these days, so I really wouldn’t be surprised if she sincerely thought she was going to win. Rooney’s my guess.

Still, other people are swearing it’s Michelle Williams, another Best Leading Actress contender, and other people are saying since the item on Blind Gossip was accompanied by a photo of nominees for Best Supporting Actress, it has to be one of those ladies, but I don’t know. Of course, Octavia Spencer won that award, with the other nominees being Melissa McCarthy, Berenice Bejo, Jessica Chastain, and Janet McTeer. Melissa definitely wouldn’t act like this, but I don’t really know anything else about the other ladies.

So there’s all the information. What do you guys think? No matter who it is, how embarrassing, right?

11Blind Item: What Singer/Songwriter is Switching Sides?

photo of blind item pictures photos pics
From Blind Gossip:

Which B/C list singer/musician who writes her own songs, recently came to the conclusion that because she has never really experienced a healthy relationship with a man, she might actually be gay? She’s always had really close women friends who she bonds well with, but her relationships with men always seem to go south and she’s never really felt she’s been in love before. She’s decided to explore this new part of herself and we’ll see if any new relationships pop up in the news.

Hm. B/C lister, huh? That’d definitely rule out Christina Aguilera, because as much as I don’t want to admit it, she’s still pretty much A-list despite her alcoholism and diva-like behavior. Plus, I don’t know of any women who’ve been close enough to her to appreciate who she is (ahem, Kelly Osbourne) as a long-term friend. That makes me think maybe someone like Demi Lovato, who’s never had good luck with ex-boyfriends (Jonas and Fez included). Plus, she’s rumored to be “good” friends with Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez, who are definitely hot little pieces that I could see Demi swooning over. Last, Demi does allegedly write her own songs – most of them, anyway – and she’s definitely kind of B-list, so there’s that, too.

A lot of the folks commenting over at BG say that it could possibly be Kelly Clarkson, but I don’t know about that. I mean, she’s a Republican for God’s sake. The community over there is split between her and Taylor Swift, but I just could not see Taylor Swift as a lesbian. No f-cking way. Could you imagine how disappointed her “all-American” parents would be? How many fans she’d probably lose? Taylor Swift, a lesbian? No way. Also, she’s got no close girlfriends that I’m aware of choosing to speak of.

Guesses?

4Blind Item: Demi Lovato Might Be in Rehab

A photo of Demi Lovato

A week or so ago, we had a blind item about a young starlet who is off her meds and back to drugs and booze and self-harming. As sad as it was, I think it was pretty obviously about Demi Lovato. Today, we have a brand new blind item for you guys to check out, and, well, it’s a whole lot more obvious.

From Blind Gossip:

Following a serious relapse last week, this award-winning performer was secretly admitted to a well-known rehab facility.

When word of her condition got out, her team – apparently caring more about PR than her recovery – pulled her out of the first facility, issued a denial that she was in rehab, waited a couple of hours, then put her into another facility. And that was just the beginning of their PR games.

They tried to knock the rehab story out of the headlines by planting a story about a breakup, but media outlets continued to carry the rehab story. They promised a staged photo op to prove that she was fine, but failed to deliver her because the rehab facility wouldn’t let her leave in the middle of detox. They said that she was just hanging out at home, but when friends stopped by to see her, they were told that she had suddenly gone to visit a relative on the other side of the country. They tried to fake her participation in a live online interview, but fans cried foul when they noticed that dormant Twitter accounts were being used for the questions and that the answers sounded canned and phony.

Sadly, these PR lies are just a continuation of a year of lies about her living a healthy, sober life following her last rehab. In reality, she is an out-of-control party monster. And, we are sad to report, her problems are even worse this time around: alcohol, self-harming, and lots of drugs, including cocaine and heroin.

There are lots of lies because there’s lots of money and projects and products and endorsements and magazine covers at stake. If the fans aren’t properly fooled into thinking she is a sweet, healthy girl, nobody gets paid! So they keep pretending that everything is fine (it’s not), that she is healthy (she’s not), and that they are so proud of her sobriety (Shut up, Mom). They need to keep her fans believing all of these lies order to keep the money rolling in.

Although we do know her new location, we will not disclose it. We want her to stay in rehab. Yes, even though her fans want to believe that nothing is wrong, she is definitely back in rehab. And anything you hear to the contrary is a crock of shit.

Uh, ok. First of all, the story on Blind Gossip is titled “Broken Girl is Back in Rehab.” Demi Lovato’s latest album is titled Unbroken. After the first batch of rumors of Demi heading to rehab, her rep denied it. The blind item mentions a planted story about a breakup, and I’m sure we all remember the tragic parting of Demi and Wilmer Valderrama. The blind item talks about a faked online interview, and if you check out Demi’s Twitter, she definitely has one of those. And then, of course, there’s the talk of the image of a “sweet, healthy girl,” and that certainly fits Demi. Did I miss anything?

What do you guys think? Is Demi Lovato back in rehab or what?

5Blind Items: Girls on the Edge and Meddling Moms

Oh the utter madness of it all. From Blind Gossip:

She’s off her meds, and it’s not good. She has returned to the very behavior that got her into so much trouble in the first place, including the dr*gs and the alcohol and the self-harming.

It’s almost surreal to hear her spout absolute bullsh*t about being healthy and happy and sober when she is exactly the opposite. In fact, just a week ago she was out at some madhouse of a bar, dr*nk off her ass, doing multiple shots and snorting c*ke in the bathroom.

Let’s cut to the chase, and get more direct: Look, we know that you and your friends are reading this. It is absolute madness for you to think that this will end well. You are a beautiful and talented girl, but you ARE going to lose your fans and your career and probably your life if you keep this up.

Remember how upset one of your siblings was when someone picked on them? Do you realize how much more emotionally destroyed they would be if you actually died? You should think about that, because that is exactly where you are heading right now. We don’t care if you lie to people about what your problems are. We don’t care if you pretend that you are going on vacation. Just get yourself back into rehab (or treatment, if it makes you feel better to call it that), and get well. Now.

OK, this one’s just got to be Demi Lovato, right? There’s not many starlets that have gone ass-up in the past year or so that have done the entire rehab/pushing sobriety thing as much as Demi Lovato has, so I think this one’s a no-brainer. But the part about “making fun of a sibling”? Would they be referring to this sibling, Dallas Lovato? Because dude. I’d make fun of her too. Oh, wait. That’s right.

And another:

This hunky A-lister’s mom was the REAL reason he dumped his multitalented but larger-than-life former girlfriend. The studly mama’s boy, who recently started dating a well-respected actress, received a thumbs-up on his new gal from mommy dearest.

My immediate guess would be …

1Blind Items: Revealed!

Every now and then in the comments of a delightful little blind item, one of you will say “but what’s the point? We don’t even know who this is about!” And that’s fair: it can be frustrating to read some little piece of gossip that’s so intriguing but to not even know who you’re reading about. But you guys, sometimes those blind items get revealed. Sometimes we find out the answer. And this is one of those times.

Let’s get started by talking about a blind item that you’ve heard about here. Do you remember the one about a singer who turned into a “hot disheveled mess” who drinks way too much and keeps a baby monitor on her at all times so that her bodyguard can hear if she starts to die? Yeah, that one is Christina Aguilera. Nailed it.

You want to read more, don’t you?
