With the biggest show on television, Game of Thrones, ending early next year, there is going to be a huge gap in the market for epic fantasy and although many have attempted to capture the Thrones market in recent years, an industry expert tells us that it will be a much easier task when the show is actually off the air. Well, one project is in the pre-production stage and has an advantage because they’re already got one of the Game of Thrones leads to star for a big, big payday. ‘It’s undignified of the actor,’ a source tells us. ‘It looks cheap and usually when an actor finishes a big run on a show or in a franchise, they don’t attempt to cash in on said brand by starring in a rip off.’ Apparently not our money-loving thespian. Peter Dinklage ("The Dwarf")

2. NAUGHTY GOSSIP 08/01
Which TV cable news host is terrified that naked pictures of him looking very excited are about to leak – showing that he might not be the biggest name in news! The male host is single and very sexy. He has a great body and works out, but the pictures show that he doesn’t have the biggest muscle where it matters most. He’s more embarrassed about how little the pictures show rather than the photos getting leaked. It doesn’t include his face so there is no way to 100% prove that it is him, but even so it is still very embarrassing!

This disgraced mogul/frequent sexual assaulter/lover of yoga has skewed the local market for escorts in the country where he is living/can't be extradited. The accused rapist is paying about ten times the normal fee for the services of the women which is angering all the regular customers in the country. With almost 40 years of sexual assaulting under his belt, it turns out he hires one or two women each day. Russell Simmons (Bali, Indonesian)

Another "celebrity robbery" this time featuring the directionally challenged rapper. All of these inside celebrity robberies and yet none have been solved. Remember when that reality family, excluding the one outside the country went through a string of inside jobs? Video cameras and security teams everywhere, but somehow no one has ever been captured. Please. In the case of the latter, they were inside jobs where the beneficiaries were thisclose to the victims. In the former, it is insurance fraud, but the companies won't do anything because they don't want to go after celebrities who will trash the companies on social media. They just write a check, cancel the policy and move on. French Montana/Kim Kardashian (Paris)

This recently engaged foreign born A-/B+ list mostly television actress was not even in the discussions/conversations/thought process of landing a role in a movie starring this A+ list mostly movie actor, let alone starring opposite him. Enter one engagement and a string of tabloid articles and the next thing you know, she lands the job. It is why she forced that engagement and not just a string of meaningless dates to be photographed by paps. She would go full on marriage if she thought it would get her a superhero franchise. I'm not sure what is in it for her significant other that will change his narrative.

Despite what his PR team has tried to do over the last decade, this former A/A- list mostly television actress who had an iconic role in an iconic show not named Friends, but on the same network, has not supported her ex or anything he has said going back to the first time he almost had his career crash and burn five or six years ago and had to cover his tracks. His PR people leaked a bunch of stories talking about how they are the best divorced couple ever but that is strictly a one sided thing. James Gunn/Jenna Fischer ("The Office")

In the latest edition of the world is a very small place. This freshly implanted A- list reality star from that southern reality show is someone who knows a lot about the rape this teen suffered at the hands of this radio host who is desperately trying to keep his pay cable gig too. Not only is she from the same small town, but when the radio host learned of during a press tour made a comment about the young women he had "been with" from that town and that our reality star should join the lineup.

This foreign born one named singer who is basically unknown outside her home country and probably hasn't even had a hit there since the 80's is in talks to be on this highly rated program in her country. We have it here too, including the celebrity version. The only sticking point is whether she will be allowed to use her time on the show to throw the A list mogul all of you know who she used to hook up with as recently as a few years ago under a bus. A big bus. All of those secrets right out in the open for a ratings bonanza. Sinitta ("Celebrity Big Brother")/Simon Cowell

This foreign born former A- list mostly movie actress has always got a lot of grief from me about her history. The actress, a Golden Globe nominee/winner, has been communicating with an ex. An ex that got her publicly branded. Apparently she was moved by something she read on a website last month and has been trying to arrange a visit to see the ex. She knows where he keeps some records about a period in his family's history. She thought nothing of it at the time she could have done something about it, simply because she didn't know. She says she has been unable to sleep and wants to do make amends. The records are not locked, but are simply kept in a library. She wants the world to be able to read for themselves exactly what happened.

They Helped Him: This celebrity was probably A- list at his peak. Even now, because of his name you would probably know him. He kind of has a thing which makes him a celebrity. Without that thing, no one would know who he was and we wouldn't be talking about his love of underage kids that he likes to molest and force himself on. The crazy thing is that he has had at least two celebrity girlfriends help him find his young victims. Both of them are complicit. The first was someone who had experience with a boyfriend who liked underage sex partners. He used her to help find victims because she knew who to call. As a former yachter who was also a celebrity in her own country, she knew who to call and with her A list boyfriend's money, the underage teens would appear like magic. Most of the time that is where her participation ended. Sometimes she would hold them down for the boyfriend
if the teens wanted to get away. For the most part though, the teens were hired and did as they were told. This relationship is what first attracted the subject of our blind to her. He heard rumors. The thing is though, he didn't have much money to spend and had always found them on the streets. He specialized in teen runaways. They knew him and he knew they had no one to turn to so he used them and exploited them and would give them $20 after he used them for days on end. Even he had his limits on how to access them though, so he turned to his second celebrity girlfriend. She had street cred and because females on the street knew her and felt like they could trust her, they would go home with her and she would take turns raping them with the subject of our blind. This went on for months and months and both of them loved finding teens that were younger and younger. The female celebrity had all the money though and was spending it like crazy so she decided to explore the life on her own and dumped the subject of our blind. On a side note, she is still doing the same thing with her current partner. If anything, she is even going younger than she was before. Since that time, he still prowls the streets but is getting a reputation in LA for what he does to the teens so he has had to go to different cities and the buzz is growing louder and louder to the point where police are starting to look into all of this and all of these celebrities will hopefully be going down soon.

MTO News just heard a very disturbing rumor - about a popular couple, that was recently married. We've been asked to keep the names anonymous by our snitch - who doesn't want to ruin a business venture that he's doing with the celeb couple. The couple - who have been seen on REALITY TV were married not too long ago. Here's what we were told: "[Husband] and [Wife] are complete drug addicts, on cocaine. A good friend was at their wedding, and they stopped the ceremony to do coke. The [officiant] was taken aback, he was like 'I've never seen anything like it before.' I'm telling you [Husband] got his wife hooked on drugs and d*ck. I feel so sorry for her. Hopefully he doesn't end up destroying her." Stevie J/Faith Evans

Several different sources have reached out to us all over the last few months and warned us about this comedy that hits theatres this month. ‘It has a lot of hype behind it,’ the source admits, ‘and that may translate to a good opening night, but it was an open secret on set that the movie was going to be a bomb.’ ‘[One of the stars] has pretty much given up on the whole thing,’ a separate source told us. ‘Don’t expect to see them going hard with promotion.’ ‘Nobody in the cast got along,’ our first source told us. ‘It was professional for the most part.’ I guess if you’re looking for a good time, you should go to another movie.

It wouldn't shock me at all to see this A list singer split with her celebrity husband prior to giving birth. They are under the impression that having more kids will somehow make their marriage better. Considering what they have been through and how much they still fight, this is just putting off the inevitable. I'm kind of shocked they spent nearly $100K to make this pregnancy happen to considering the likely divorce before birth. Carrie Underwood/Mike Fisher

I'm not sure if she even knows it, but this former A- list mostly television actress from a hit cable show that is now defunct has some photos out there she probably does not want distributed the way they are. Our actress, who has had trouble getting any work other than a bit part or two since the show went off the air is making money doing promo photos. In case you are new to the party, these are photos which are supposedly "random" and "pap like" where your favorite star who needs some money is photographed in a store holding a product looking as if they are about to purchase the product. Sometimes they are done in hotel rooms or apartments. This is one of those cases. Our actress was convinced to almost get naked for the product and went through different sexy looks. Apparently while she was mixing and matching and showing more than she thought, photos were being snapped which are now being looked at by a lot of people. No one is sure how they got out and the photographer at the shoot is not being blamed for it, but someone was snapping some pictures at the same time and there is very little left to the imagination.

Casting Call #1 - A Dancing Boy Blind Item: So, who wants to play the dancing boy - my teen likeness, I mean? He may not be reading this, but he's out there somewhere, and maybe you know him. Maybe he's your son, a nephew, or member of your local theater troupe. He will be blond, and blue-eyed, with few and probably no professional credits. He'll also be well qualified to join the better half of a secret global elite - it's Hollywood branch, more specifically - with training in martial arts, oratory, politics, table tennis (among other skills...okay kidding: training will be provided by celebrity experts, and footage included in the first dancing boy short). And, if it all works out, it's a role that could last for two or more decades (after which, beginning in the present day, I take over).

This A- list reality star is very firm in her beliefs. She does not believe in "half" anything even though that is how she grew up.

The Insider: This former child actor was A+ list. There was no doubt about it. It might have been for a fairly brief period in time back in the day but he was A+ list. Even though he never acts and doesn't seem to have any desire to really do so again on a regular basis, he is known by everyone. All of you know him. He has more secrets inside his head, then most. Not only was he the target of multiple sexual advances by industry executives, many members of his family shared the same fate. At the same time, an extended member of his family people forget about also has shared her stories to him about some of the sexual assaults she suffered through to land parts, especially the time she had to take several years off from acting after this former child actor turned A+ list mostly movie actor raped her for three days straight while they were starring together in a television show. She could barely walk and had almost a year of physical recovery from the beating she endured during the rape. Meanwhile, the actor is beloved today. The subject of our blind also knows where bodies are buried (but not the literal ones written about in this space within the past month) about many upper level moguls/A+ list director/singers/producers who all befriended someone who was very close to our subject. He knows about the recordings, both visual and audio. He knows what was done to whom and when because not only did our actor witness a great deal of it, he was also told a lot of it by the A++ list perpetrator/ringmaster of it. Our former actor is still close to the people who control a great deal of the knowledge/information and they are ready to talk too. This is going to be the biggest door opener/take down Hollywood thing that has ever happened.

I'm usually fairly good at tracking these things, but honestly, next time this former underage B- list celebrity turned reality star turned porn star turned celebrity wants to move on to a really expensive entertainment project, she should have a little money or a better plan. Every single step of the way through this project she had to have sex with the person she was needing the favor from because she didn't have enough funds. There must be a dozen people at this point and it looks like the project is going to be a complete bomb. If there is no one that is willing to actually put money behind a project, there is probably a good reason. What she got was a bunch of people doing the bare minimum while keeping the sex thing going as long as possible.

This married former B- list singer has been making news recently. It is because of that news that the people closest to her are also garnering attention.

It might be the answer to her frequent question of why she never has sex with her husband.

It is not so much the art purchases of this disgraced former power broker, but the location of all the purchases. Apparently the vast majority were bought in one country and with each purchase came the use of very young females who were courtesy of the network started by the former leader of the country and enjoyed by everyone who had the money or favors to bestow upon him. Hollywood of course is involved in the debauchery all courtesy of that A+ list mostly movie actor who bought his way into dual citizenship in case anything untoward happens back home in the States.

Reader Blind: In the long, twisted history of Hollywood hook-up stories, this is no doubt one of the strangest. The female part of this dalliance was at the time a young girl who starred in a highly rated hour long comedy/drama show with frequent guest stars. On the show, she played the daughter of the main character. She was definitely underage. The male part of this dalliance was a now deceased TV actor many decades older who was most famous for playing a self-important blowhard on a very popular sitcom the decade before. This was a role that won him multiple Emmys. He guested on the show a few times as a rival to the main character. The young actress grew smitten with the older actor and they had a brief relationship. She lost her virginity to him. The incongruous nature of their relationship seems ridiculous at first but she has dropped hints to it in Q&A sessions she has done as part of the one woman show she tours with. Love or lust is blind.

Reader Blind: In the years after this classic sitcom with a supernatural theme went off the air, the female main character, the actress who played her mother, and the actor who played the main character's husband for the second half of the series run all died of cancer. The actor who played the female main character's husband during the first half of the series was sick already with different ailments but got worse once he joined the show and eventually had to quit. Then there's the crew - many of them developed cancer and other serious illnesses. Too many to be a coincidence. The answer is a very obvious one - the quickly built house on a back lot that served as the main set for the series was filled with asbestos. Relatives of the crew members have over the years received some hush money payments in return for keeping quiet. Some might ask why didn't the very out there camp comedic actor and/or the authoritative British character actor get sick? Go back and watch the show. Their characters were re-occuring and they were not in every episode and therefore not required to be on set as much.
Classic sitcom: "Bewitched"
Female main character: Elizabeth Montgomery (colon cancer)

Reader Blind Item - Kindness: Aside from charitable endeavors, these two actors have two other things in common – 1.) They both played immediately recognizable characters on that very famous ensemble sitcom with the theme song everyone knows 2.) They both died in the same year.

Actor #1 was a noted comedic and serious actor who specialized in playing characters of a certain income level. He was equally famous for voicing a popular cartoon character. In his spare time, he served on a number of boards of philanthropic organizations. In particular, literacy became a passion of his and he worked on a number of projects to bring books to underprivileged inner city kids. He and his wife left all their money to charity as well.

Actor #2 was in primarily adventure movies prior to the sitcom role. His father was also an actor. He was active in raising funds for those afflicted with the disease that also killed him. Towards the ends of his life, he performed in children’s wards for the terminally ill dressed as the character from the sitcom. He did this even as he was very ill and dying.

Our favorite former tweener turned A- list singer/bad adult actress says that part of the deal when she landed her hugely successful franchise is she has to make herself available for hooking up with this almost permanent married A list comic actor.

This married former A list reality star from a show that is still spawning spinoffs says she is doing her part by hooking up with this married Congressional challenger so she can October surprise him and help out the incumbent who she supports. Add to that, she says she is also being paid by a super PAC more money than she has earned in all her tea selling/waist training other ripoff scams over the past five years. To me, it kind of seems she is taking the role that once belonged to this former A- list mostly television actress from a hit network show that aired back in the day. That show launched the career of multiple actors who continue to hover around that A-/B+ list range after two decades. One was even in an iconic show for several years ALL of you know. Kim Zolciak-Biermann ("Real Housewives of Atlanta") (waist trainer)

A New Ringmaster: He calls himself the ringmaster. He said it was because he used to organize a circus when he was working full-time. Not an actual circus, but definitely was juggling multiple performers and schedules and responsibilities. He did it well. There is no doubting that. He still calls himself the ringmaster now but says it is not just about juggling performers, but juggling who goes where and when and how can he get a piece. He also likes to make jokes about animals and whips which may have something to do with it too, but that is for a later day. The thing is, all of you know him. Every single last one of you reading this site. I would say a fair share of the in line checkout readers of weekly magazines probably know who he is or at least the people he was wrangling. He likes to pretend he is still in the closet but all of you know better. The weekly checkout readers? He made sure none of that reached those pages. He still has the power to keep that out of there, but not off the websites. We all know the real story. He is not hiding it from his family. Maybe he is hiding it from the people in his past who frowned upon gay people and said they were all going straight to hell. Maybe he thinks he still needs their favor. Maybe he does. Maybe they are his best customers. I have no doubts that those people from his past life before he became famous are his customers. They certainly sampled that former A list actor he used to keep around back in the day. How do you think he became A list? Our ringmaster was a collector back then. He kept them close and traded them for favors to help out his charges. The people that built his empire. The thing is though that empire was built on him offering up underage teen boys to power players. He took the risks and the powers that be delivered. They ended up delivering for the boys too because that was part of the deal. Our ringmaster liked that power. There was a time when he was too busy doing other things to collect. Oh sure, he would collect for himself but those were one night stands which often led to embarrassing situations and a lot of extortion. He was too trusting of his one night stands. After all, for years he had loyalty from his collection. He wanted something more like that not only for himself, but for others. There was always a demand, you just needed the right person and he was it. He still is it. He still has cache that others don't/ He drops a couple of names and possibilities for those young men and invites them to his place in LA or takes them in a private jet to Florida where they roll around in the sun and takes videos of them. He then offers them up. They don't get paid. Our ringmaster gets paid cash and the young men/teens get a chance at either working in the business or a chance at being kept by a successful man in business/entertainment. Of course our ringmaster samples all the products first for himself and is also known to make sure the boys report back to him any information he can use about their new benefactors. It is because of a boy he provided many years to a man that he made his greatest wealth and the wealth of one of his empire builders. They live off that deal. The deal that saw the 15 year old from a small town in a very large state become the plaything for a very very wealthy man. The man was so happy he made a sweetheart deal that made millions for the ringmaster and his charges and left the 15 year old a college dropout at 19 and dead on the streets by 22. Our ringmaster says it is the cost of doing business.

Reader Blind Item: Just after the turn of the century there was a movie. Based on a dramatic true story that proved to be the big break for many, now well known actors. It had a big cast of men, essential to the nature of the movie. Among this cast were a considerable number of young, relatively unknown, foreign born actors from a certain country. For many of them it was their first time on a big budget film, or their first time working with a big name director or, for some, their first time working away from their home country, and they were eager to please. Another actor on set was more well known, while not being A list by any stretch he had a secure career and was friends with the A+ list director among other influential people. He was also, even then, a massive sleaze, and didn’t discriminate by gender (although lately he is more well known for leaning towards women.) He saw a vulnerable group and set out to make some of their lives miserable on set. Bullying and sexually harassing whenever he got the chance. Eventually, as he became more of a bully and things got more physical, three of the actors stepped up and made a complaint to the director. The director met with them, and said that he would talk to the Sleaze but warned them not to make any formal complaints or they would never work again. The Sleaze was reprimanded but this only made him worse. He knew no one would say anything. The three actors have continued to act and have successful careers. One of them, more recently, had his career sabotaged by the most famous sleaze of all. But is back on track now with the lead in a TV show. The second keeps a low profile, and is kind of an introvert, but always has interesting projects on the go, mostly working on TV, theatre and Indie stuff. The third you all know from his turn in THAT franchise. And THAT OTHER franchise. The Director was caught in another pervert related quandary recently. That case was so high profile he couldn't cover it up and had to make big changes to his movie. The Sleaze got #MeTooed and will probably never work again. Karma’s a bitch.

Reader Blind Item - Kindness: Testimony of a young survivor of this horrific policy describes the day they were liberated. One of the officers involved, an extremely handsome man with an unflappable demeanor, led a team of men who were there to photographically document what had happened. He and his team were not from America. The officer personally helped the survivors and made sure many of them got the help they needed not to mention food and other supplies as well as transport to where they needed to go for those well enough to travel. He was the go to guy for helping all the victims who were kept in this location. He would receive a number of medals for his overall conduct and service during this huge conflict of the last century. A few years later, the survivor had immigrated to the home country of the officer and happened to go to a movie. The star was the officer. In the years that followed, the survivor followed the officer’s career as he went from teen heartthrob to mature adult making films that would be described as intellectual and arty and somewhat experimental. He was also known for not making any attempt to hide his sexuality, not out, no one was then, but not in the closet either, as well as his excellent fashion sense and the series of books he wrote later in life (some of which deal with his harrowing war experiences). He was not as big in the USA as his home country but was deeply respected. Towards the end of the officer’s life, the survivor was able to meet him and thank him for what he did. The officer as cool as ever said it was his duty as a human being. Dirk Bogarde (liberation of Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany)

Reader Blind Item - Kindness: This late actor was everywhere on TV in the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. The role he is most famous for is as a sidekick to the hero on this offbeat variation of a specific genre of action show that had an awful film reboot three decades later. He also did voice over work for cartoons and directed episodes of TV shows. He did a lot of charity in his spare time specifically for two causes. He was a major mover for the Boys Club and Girls Club devoting his time, money, and fundraising ability. He was even more involved with an institution that helped children afflicted with a certain condition that he was introduced to while researching a movie role. He started a celebrity sporting event for charity and a lot of the money raised went to the institution.

In the Shady Shadyopolis department, there is a bit of a problem. This time it's the individual who has been the numbers person for a few different organizations during their career. (We'll call this person BC, short for bean counter.) BC changes jobs every two to three years because that's basically how long it takes for the numbers to start looking funky to outsiders. Currently, BC is working for one organization involved in a celebrity situation, and also worked for one before that and one before that. One of the past organizations BC worked for was allegedly giving a very low percentage of the money it took in to it's actual cause. This was eventually noticed by the media and didn't look good to the outside world. One of BC's more recent gigs is also a clear conflict of interest with the current one, but no one seems to have noticed. Eventually maybe someone will, but by then BC will have moved on again and the money will have evaporated again too. Those involved don't mind, because that's how they roll too.

Mr. X: This is part 2 of the BI featuring the B-list singer/celeb spawn. I know this may shock you, but the majority of popular musicians who say they write their own songs don't. Enter the "song doctor" which is code for ghostwriter. The artist whom the ghostwriter is paid to churn out/tinker with songs for have little to no input in the writing process itself. Ghostwriters for a specific artist are usually put in a room with the producer of the album and let their creative juices flow. In the industry this is called a songwriter camp and it can usually last for hours. So where does our singer/celeb spawn fit into all this? Well, according to hearsay by one of my sources, she is one of the most highly paid "song doctor"s in the music biz. She has written or co-written many top 10 hits dating from the late '80s to present day. She has ghostwritten enough #1 songs to fill a greatest hits album. They are songs you will definitely know and artists you definitely know (including the usual suspects who frequently use ghostwriters: BK, TS, MC, JB, JT, LG, etc). So those reports of her being broke... yeah, they're not true. As for the other song doctors, that's for another BI.

A Dancing Boy Blind: Two storylines: one present, one past - and a bevy of very talented and in some cases famous actors. The past tense one, which takes place during a very pivotal year of my young life, happens at the height of all that - it's about the cast party for a certain movie I'm in. So, it's theme is celebration, basically, until - at its end - I learn of a last-minute addition to the script; all the creeps - to be played (as I said/hopefully) by Anthony Rapp, myself, Noah Ray (he's the director brought on for this one scene, a music video, in a sense), Chad Allen, and Taliesin Jaffe - are present. And of course it will be the secret world premiere of the young actor cast as my young likeness (as well as others...). The present tense one has to do with the death and dying of my mentor - the good twin/screenwriter - which (because the world is awful) takes place before the death of his brother. (I'll be playing the roles of both brothers in midlife - in forthcoming projects, including the first feature - but you can expect a very accomplished and award-winning veteran actor of stage and screen to appear as the elder twins in this one.) Following his death, I go to confront the other brother about what happened, only to find that he has dementia so far advanced he doesn't recognize me, or even himself. Worse: it's clear to me that he is being abused and neglected by the staff of the nursing home, and I'm forced to choose between the probably deserved rough justice, and undeserved compassion - stepping in on his behalf. Reluctantly, I choose the latter. So, not a feature-length stage play (that may be a musical version of the movie), but almost not super short either. Since the short is filmed mostly where I currently reside (until the end, when I'm patient-dumped in Hollywood [more about that: I then camp out on Bill and Jack's lawn, where I'm visited at my tent by Amanda Bynes; when we don't voluntarily leave {a please get off my lawn moment here} we're put, tent and all, on a flat bed truck and end up in the VIP section of the dump - a picnic with discarded food there follows]), it'll likely be put on a very old (by this state's standards) theater (where among others a certain icon of 19th century lit, whose books are among the most banned, used to perform). PS Oh, and I definitely see a certain female friend from college times directing/introducing this one... PPS Even the orchestra should feature some interesting people. One of them is likely to be this one musician, from the place I currently reside. I've known her sister as a friend and former co-worker since the aughts (we were both sexually harassed by the same person). They share a famous last name with their cousin, a certain local turned statewide politician (who is very probably going to win the big contest this fall; the sister I know is a climate scientist at Caltech).

He Too - Old Hollywood: This beloved deceased permanent A list male star was one of the biggest predators in Hollywood. We'll call him Mr. R. Every female he worked with experienced some kind of predatory or inappropriate behavior from this person. Because of the times and his power in the industry, it was impossible back in those days to stop him. At least half a dozen actresses were alleged to have been assaulted, and there are probably more that did not share their experiences with anyone out of fear. His adoring fans had no idea. One young actress (we'll call her Ms. L) was subjected to repeated assault attempts from Mr. R. Our actress valiantly fought off Mr. R's advances on a film they made together and fortunately had family members on set who also helped shield her from being raped. Our actor was so enraged that he could not get Ms. L alone during the making of this movie that in retaliation he did everything he could to make her miserable during filming. Mr. R would kick her, pinch/slap her breasts while ridiculing her and would stomp on/smash her feet with his shoes in between and during takes. Eventually the nightmare of this movie ended, and Ms. L was finally able to get away from our actor, even though he issued parting threats that he'd find her someday and "finish the job". Ms. L shared her horrifying experiences with a friend, also an A-list Hollywood actress we will call Ms. C. Ms. C. also had a scary encounter with Mr. R (when she was a teenager) and was not surprised that the awful stories that had filtered out from crew about Mr. R's behavior on the movie were true. Years went by, and Ms. C. was invited to attend an extremely important event, and was told that Mr. R was also going to be invited too. Mr. R was pretty much retired from the business by then, and was slated to be one of the honored guests at this gathering. Ms. C had become an even more powerful celebrity in her own right by this time, so she immediately contacted the organizers with her concerns. She stated that if Mr. R was included in this event, she would publicly withdraw. When she was asked why she so vehemently opposed his attendance at this event, she stated in no uncertain terms that Mr. R had attempted to rape her as a teen and had assaulted other actresses he'd worked with. This resulted in Mr. R being dropped immediately from the event and from any future events--and caused the story to spread like wildfire through the industry rumor mill. Because of this, Mr. R figured out immediately what had taken place and was able to manipulate a mutual friend into giving him Ms. C's telephone number. He wasted no time making a threatening phone call to her about his dis-invite to the event. Ms. C was no shrinking violet and managed to record the call, turning the recording over to her lawyers right away. One of Ms. C's lawyers had an extremely tough reputation and immediately contacted Mr. R's lawyers with a cease and desist order, threatening to take the recording public. Since Ms. C was a such a mega-star by this time, there was no way that Mr. R was going to be able to explain this telephone threat if it was released to the public and he knew it. Ms. C's legal team made a deal to destroy the tape (and keep quiet about it) in exchange for a large payout from Mr. R.-- which of course was paid immediately. In spite of the gag order, Ms. C still discussed this saga with her close female friends, many of whom had been his targets. Word spread about the incident and is still discussed by old-timers in the business. And what about the settlement money? Ms. C. arranged to have those funds anonymously donated to help establish several of the very first rape crisis centers in North America.

Since this film is historical in nature, the producers have decided to pull the release date in hopes that their A list star can get his act together, get sober and actually do press for the movie.

The foreign born former A+ list tweener and his celebrity offspring girlfriend are basically just doing a version of cuckolding.

With her most recent actions in public and behind the scenes, this former A+ list singer has drawn even more attention to herself from authorities about what she knows about the celebrity death.

Don't Go Outside: I think over the past several weeks or so we are getting an idea that perhaps this A list singer (EX) is not as stable as one might have previously thought. There is no question about her A list status. When she is on her game, she is incredible. That being said, she does get distracted from time to time and the more she drinks, the more she gets distracted. The more she gets distracted about a certain topic, the more violent she is likely to become. She is not going to go over to your house and hit you or anything like that, but as this permanent A list singer (BA) can attest, you can find animal feces on your doorstep or a decapitated Barbie doll that is wearing clothing remarkably similar to an outfit BA wore in the past which EX hand sewed for the doll. There was one time EX caught her celebrity significant other cheating on her with a female singer who has had issues in the past with men who are attached. What did EX do? Splashed bright red paint (at least everyone hopes it was paint) all over every single pair of his underwear. EX then drove over the the condo where the singer was living at the time and using shoe polish wrote the word "Wh**e" on every window visible to the street. The crazy thing is that everything she accuses others of, she has done herself, but says she gets a pass because of what they put her through.

106. BETHENNY FRANKEL/MONEY MAGAZINE 08/08
Bethenny Frankel says the bank accounts of many Real Housewives stars aren’t quite as flush as they appear on TV. "They can’t afford the lives they’re living," Frankel, 47, tells Money for the magazine’s September issue. "And if the music stops, they’re going to get in some trouble." Frankel ensured that she would not find herself in that trouble when she signed her first contract to appear on The Real Housewives of New York City. Money reports that Frankel, who was paid $7,250 for her first season, would not agree to give Bravo profits from endeavors that she used Real Housewives to publicize. "Everybody else just had to try to play catch-up after they saw what I did," Frankel says. Frankel’s financial woes are now long behind her — she made $100 million by selling Skinnygirl in 2011 and can still use the brand name, according to Money — but she started her career in tougher circumstances. "Until my late thirties, everything was just an anxiety and a struggle," explains Frankel, who racked up $20,000 in credit card debt. "It’s like the way people feel when they eat something and they don’t feel good about it. … I’d be on the phone begging to get the [fees] reduced." She has a philosophy about debt: "You can’t put yourself in a position where, if the s–t hit the fan, you couldn’t pay all of your bills at one time," she says. "If the world came to an end, I would be able to pay for everything. I might not be left with much, but I can afford what I have." Frankel showed off her financial security when she took Architectural Digest on a tour of her glamorous, $4.2 million Manhattan loft in May. "I feel humbled," she said at the time. "It took my three days to feel like this is my apartment. Wow, I can’t believe I live here." In March, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Girardi said on The Wendy Williams Show that she spends $40,000 per month to facilitate her lifestyle. She said, "If you want to look good, it’s hair, it’s makeup, it’s wardrobe, and then those people that help facilitate that. They’re not cheap."

This long running north of the border teen dominated show has been filming in what seems like an out of the way place. It is the basis for what became a crackdown on an international child p*rn ring. Several of the tweens/teens on the show were filmed performing explicit sex scenes. Because the town is so small, the producers of the child p*rn needed more children. Enter this convicted child p*rn king who also happens to be a fugitive right now after agreeing to cooperate in a much larger ongoing investigation before fleeing the country. Through his contacts in the government in both countries, he arranged for children to be flown from his country to the north of the border country for filming. The children would stay three days and then be flown back to their home country or into the US where they would be sold. There have been several guilty pleas in this case, but the big names involved have been protected from prosecution because it would be "uncomfortable." Tell that to the kids.

The STD: They were making it work. They had made their relationship work for many years. They definitely had their ups and downs, but that was more to his wanting to be with men more than wanting to be with women. When they first began their relationship, he was probably an A- list mostly movie actor. I would listen to arguments he was A list because he was in some very big movies and was given a chance at headlining a decent sized movie. It bombed. His career bombed. Everyone knew he was more interested in partying and finding guys to hook up with than acting. He only liked the acting for the money it gave him to fund his partying ways. When he was A list, all of you knew him. He was a heartthrob. She used to be an A lister too. Television for her. Popular show. Later, she kind of bounced around before landing another show which was middling to say the least and only stayed on the air because there was nothing to replace it with. I also think it is because one of the supporting cast hooked up with a network executive in charge of the show. When she got pregnant (that is a whole other Maury type situation) they stopped seeing each other and the show fizzled. How did our two lovebirds get together considering how much he enjoys guys? His people thought he needed to escape the rumors about his sexuality. He is still in the closet. So, they had him go on a date with our actress. The thing is though, they clicked as friends. They could hang out and she wasn't all that interested in dating and never has been. More of an asexual person. She did want a baby though, so they did that and did it the natural way. It was maybe a year after the baby was born or a little longer, that our actress wanted another baby. So, they set about trying again. The thing is though he neglected to tell her that he had contracted a STD. He says STD. I say HIV. She found out when she got a call from someone who had a call from the Health Department who knew the two of them were trying to make a baby but the caller had also been having unprotected sex with our actor. Our actress was incensed and basically since that day has barred the actor from her life. Hayden Christensen/Rachel Bilson ("The O.C.") ("Hart of Dixie") (cast member: Jaime King)

A Dancing Boy Blind: Here's one about, in part, something I haven't discussed before: Sunday brunch, in college times, consisted of Challah French Toast, black coffee, and the children of celebrities, and assorted prep school throwaways nursing nosebleeds and hangovers from the night before. In this one case - later in those years - I was joined by two friends, both of whom would become journalists. Neither of them mentioned it, but sometimes you can feel the stares of others, even when they're at your back. "Why are they looking at us?" I asked, pretending to read the Times. "I don't think they're looking at us honey. I think they're looking at you." "How come?" "According to (one of the people at the table - the son of a disco-era R&B singer/bandleader known in particular for this one song about partying), there are pictures and video of you on the net - from when you were in San Francisco." "I guess we know what they're into," I said, audibly. "Some things you wish you hadn't seen," he replied. I turned to him, looking straight into his eyes, and said: "You chose to look at that stuff, unlike all those people who come to your house on campus, and find themselves greeted by your naked and erect self." And that was that. The first question people ask me, when they hear about this part of my past, is if I had known about the internet, would I have done it still. The answer, if it's my current self, is a resounding no. But, in truth, you'd be asking my adolescent self, who had a limited sense of consequences, and on the worst days - owing largely to the shame and self-loathing that comes with abuse - little expectation of making it past 30. His answer, I'm afraid, would still be yes. But hey: at least I didn't use my real name - which brings me to the second part of this blind. A few weeks back I got a phone call from one of my aforementioned friends. It seems this person's employer wants to be the publication that breaks the story of a major celebrity scandal (which you all now know about). In involves of course one of my friends and forthcoming players - who I had vowed years back to help lift up if I ever got back in the game - and something that began when he, like me, was fourteen. I told her exactly what he told me, which is that he hasn't decided if he's ready to speak with the press yet, but he's getting closer to that point. (I also said - and this is inside baseball stuff - that a certain reporter from a different news organization, known for this one law prof/blogger, would have to share the byline. I feel I owe him this.) "What about you?" she asked. "You want to do a story about my illustrious career as a teen porn star?" "No, not really," she said. And then, silence. "You still there?" she asked, finally. "Yes, and you know the answer. It isn't that I won't but I can't - not now anyhow." "Fair enough," she said, and proceeded to tell me this story. It's about someone you may or may not have ever heard of, but who in recent years was on the short list for a top job in his profession. What scuttled his bid? There is a picture, of course, just a google search away. But that wasn't the only one they found during the vetting process. There were numerous others, pictures and videos, from his late teens and early twenties - all apparently circulating on barely legal websites since the 1990s. And not even that was all. According to one his friends from back then, he often played the "son," "nephew," or "protege" of wealthy, closeted politicians, judges, and even in one case a country singer at parties in his home state - never using a pseudonym. It may not be a scandal in Hollywood, but it certainly would be there.

A Dancing Boy Blind: While I'm on the subject of the college, and not I guess a blind or anything, but who applied and was rejected back then? This one actress, known today probably more for her activism than her acting. She was the star - at least I'm sure as far as many of the men and boys in the audience were concerned - of this long running network sitcom back in the day. She is also known for her feuds, apparently driving this one actress to quit a certain later show, only to be replaced by another actress with whom she didn't get along. All that came up again late last year regarding a major celebrity scandal/divorce. You have to wonder just how bad her grades were. I mean, being who she was, you'd have to otherwise conclude that all she had to do was spell her name correctly on the application to get in.

This permanent A list mostly movie actor is the source of that world famous rumor which got spread by word of mouth and knocked our actor down to A- list. A for show wedding and marriage that made news everywhere didn't really stop those rumors. Our actor had no way to address the rumor without answering questions and discussing it more, so sought other ways. When the marriage to the superstar didn't work, he turned to someone else. No, not a woman, but someone he thought would really boost his image. It gave him a different image, but it never really brought him back to where he once was. His most recent ex says the actor blames the person he turned to. He says the person he turned to was more interested in finding young boys who were drawn to the person like a moth to a flame. He had a choice of literally thousands of boys and when our actor would want to see the person, he often had to wait days or weeks because the person just wanted to be with his "harem," he called it. Even when the person would travel the globe, there they would be, tagging along, a group of a half dozen boys for every week he was traveling. A three week trip? Twenty boys, a new one for each night. Our actor never said anything to anyone and just continued to make people believe the person was something else. It almost seems as if our actor embraced that kind of do anything attitude because that is when our actor became sort of a menace on set and in public and continues to do so up to today. It is also interesting that our actor no longer talks about the other person in such glowing terms. How could he? When the truth comes out, and it will, how will our actor look when it turns out he knew and said nothing.
Actor: Richard Gere
Rumor: went to an emergency room with a gerbil stuffed into his rectum, supposedly an extreme form of gay sex
Source of rumor: Sylvester Stallone

Marriage: Cindy Crawford
Person he turned to: Dalai Lama

Thora Birch (American Beauty) was on track to being one of the biggest actresses of her generation until rumours of her stage dad’s demanding behaviour got her on the blacklist. Well, it’s not spoken about nearly as much, but this hot teenage heartthrob was set to be a big star until one of his ridiculous parental figures got a little too demanding in negotiations and single-handedly lost the actor several lead roles, including a potential superhero movie. It probably didn’t help he also wasn’t the best actor. Taylor Lautner

His career might be in the toilet right now, but his fetish for only dating women who look exactly like the A+ list mostly movie actress who rejected him on a near weekly basis for almost two years continues. Our actor, who is also a comic is probably getting a second chance again very soon thanks to the streaming service that loves him has a new girlfriend. He even makes her wear her hair like the actress. I wonder if he calls her by the name of the actress. Aziz Ansari ("Master Of None")/Jennifer Lawrence

I'm guessing this is the end of the relationship between the A- list reality star and the pro athlete. Once again, while out of the country he has been hooking up with multiple women. One is a proper ex and one is one of the women he already cheated on the reality star with. Khloé Kardashian/Tristan Thompson (in Toronto teaching a basketball camp)

This back in the day A list mostly movie actress who crashed and burned when she tried to self medicate is on an entirely different kind of drugs these days. Unable to pay her bill to her drug dealer, she instead films herself with tween boys and girls and gives the product to the dealer who sells it to others. Apparently this has been going on for awhile but she managed to keep it super secret until some fellow party goers stole her stuff. Sean Young ("Blade Runner")

This A- list alliterate mostly television actor is sweating bullets rights now. After years and years of looking for a big break he got a huge one and is on a hit and making money hand over fist. He has already been told though if a case moves on to the next stage he will be suspended and most likely fired from his current gig and that his career will be over for quite some time. Meanwhile, a set of writers is working on a season that includes him and doesn't include him. Anthony Anderson ("Black-ish")

Dear former tweener actress who had to use her feet in ways we all don't want to know more about turned A list singer. It is all well and good that you are sticking to your timeline of when you did and did not start hooking up with the late night actor/addict. The problem you are facing is he was telling his friends that he was hooking up with you loooong before your time line suggests. So, while you are scurrying around in the dark tonight in that crash pad you think no one knows about, but we do while you do your umm, activities, maybe you get your stories straight.

Double Dose Of Don't Believe The Hype: Were you in the store last week and happen to see the whole Brad Pitt/Jennifer Aniston marriage thing in the tabloids. I told you it would happen. This stuff is on the same level of fakery because publicists see a way to make their clients look better.

#1 - This foreign born weight challenged/grouchy/heavy drinker/frequent cheater/Academy Award winner/nominee is being talked about to be hooking up with this foreign born permanent A list singer. First of all she is about twice the age of the women he dates. Second of all, she has no interest in him or anyone of his ilk right now. Not going to happen. Didn't happen. Both would say hell no. Russell Crowe/Celine Dion

#2 - This former A- list actor/Lothario who is working his way through a second generation of 18 and 19 year old women who were barely alive when he made his first run through the gene pool is being suggested as wanting to settle down with the rehabbing singer. Umm, no. His goal in life is to break the record of Wilt Chamberlain which would be tough if he was married. Wilmer Valderrama/Demi Lovato

There's Too Much Paranoia: A series of big events that have received a lot of positive media attention are rumored to be experiencing epic levels of drama behind the scenes. The most interesting story coming out of the events relates to one of the A list participants who we'll call Mr. C. Mr. C is a revered figure in his circles, but in real life is becoming more difficult with age- his public persona is much different than the private one, which has always been volatile. Anyway, Mr. C is a jerk and is now also getting super paranoid as he gets older. Because of his narcissism, he's convinced he will be targeted, especially after reading recent news about 3D printers and weapons. Because of these fears, Mr. C insisted on a last minute security clause at the event which resulted in upset people and disorder at the venue. The worst part was that because the demand was made on such short notice, there was no time to adequately communicate it to those attending which added to the chaos. The people associated with Mr. C are livid about this right now but don't dare cross him. Mr. C: Rahm Emanuel, mayor of Chicago ("Lollapalooza 2018")

Cuckadoodledoo: Speaking of big events, this same event was also attended by some other VIPs, including another A list figure, who contrary to Mr. C is well liked. We'll call him Mr. P - and his attendance at this event was not without it's own controversy. This was because of his significant other, who loves the public eye and social media in particular. Recently she posted something on SM praising some high profile friends who are also ardent supporters of a certain political figure. Friends and acquaintances of Mr. P saw this post and were absolutely horrified. Because of this, those involved in the event were hoping Mr. P would come solo, but no dice. She isn't about to miss another social media opportunity and Mr. P has zero control over her behavior anyway.

I don't understand people sometimes. Well, a lot of the time, but especially in this case. You have this former A list rapper who is going through financial hell and will probably end up losing her home. She could go on tour and easily make the money to support herself and keep her home. She won't though. Why? Because she is living a decade or so in the past and thinks she should be able to charge $75 a ticket and play nothing but 5,000 seat places and larger. If she would get in a van and play 1,000 seat places and charge $25 she could easily make a ton of money. Her ego won't let her though, so her financial situation will only get worse. Lil' Kim

This pay cable company really wants a spinoff of that ending soon hit show. So, they assigned four pilots to two executives, neither of whom have any idea about the franchise other than the episode or two they watched of the show. This is turning into a disaster and the executives spend more time taking shots at each other than they do anything actually substantive. So, for all of you hoping for something good and your fix after the show ends, you may be disappointed. HBO/"Game of Thrones"

His First Victim: He was one of the biggest celebrities on the planet (PR). He had created something the entire world was discussing. He was young and at the top of his game. If you think about it, and what happened in the next few years with girls and teens who looked remarkably similar, you see the pattern developing. They ran into each other at a party. The kind of party where PR was probably too old for but this B+ list actress fit right in. We will call her (VS). VS knew exactly who PR was and he promised her a role in his new movie if she wanted to hang out. So, they did. He forced her into all kinds of degrading sex acts and to make her want to do them found a doctor who prescribed a whole bunch of pills for her to take. PR also got her a very special medicine from a friend in the Amazon who he had met while scouting a film that would make him even more famous. That special medicine is what ultimately would kill VS. They were supposed to meet one night but PR had already found someone he liked more and who was younger. He didn't want VS talking about him, so he told her to meet him late one night after she hung out with friends. He told her to take some of the special medicine an hour before they were to meet. She did and ended up dead. A decade later a family member of VS found out about PR and confronted PR about the death of VS. PR agreed to meet the family member. Two hours after their meeting, the family member was dead.

Back in the day it would have been him doing too many drugs for her, but times have changed.

It was not that long ago that this former AD cobbled together $850K from a bunch of boosters to pay off a grad student. Why would a grad student get an $850K payout? Well, perhaps it had something to do with the affair she was having with the head coach of the team. A married head coach. A married A+ list head coach. When the wife of the coach discovered this, she went and had an affair of her own with a personal trainer before going all Angela Bassett minus the flames. She did throw all of the clothes of the coach on the front lawn. He tried to cover all of it up by faking a near death illness before writing a big check to his wife to stay married to him and quit his job for a fresh start which doesn't seem to be working out all that well for them. Apparently it is a good thing there are no drug tests for coaches too. At least back then, it would have been an issue.

Reader Blind Item: This writer/director who started out as a screenwriter first is probably not A list to most people which is a shame because he has written as well as directed some truly classic films. It’s a travesty of justice he has not won at least a screenwriting Oscar. Many years ago, when he was just starting out, he submitted a screenplay to this permanent A list director for a film he was planning about man making contact with another form of life. His screenplay was not used for the film which became a huge hit. The streaming service that is often written about on the site has approached the writer/director about editing his old screenplay and filming it for them. He is strongly considering it.

The Informant - A Birdie Blind Item: As it turns out, the veteran journalist was right: He didn't do it for the money. In fact, at the time, he didn't even know there would be a payout - albeit, in his case, secret. What disheartened him the most was to learn that politics work the same way the world over, including this one country. As in: the president or prime minister wants credit, regardless if he or she deserves it, and his or her subordinates are willing to go along - including in this one part of the state. What happened, exactly? He saw something and said something. It's ironic, given the current environment, that he and his family have finally been granted passage out of their native country, where they've been in danger. If they made a movie about what really happened, it might not win any awards, but at least it would be accurate.

A Dancing Boy Blind: Another one on the d/l, and you're just about the first to hear of it, but the very, very first dancing boy project is going to be a filmed (on location, ten minute) one act called (tentatively), "Truth or Dare: A Dancing Boy Production." (That play I mentioned in recent weeks is actually turning out to be feature length.) It opens in the present day, with two certain actors - a man and a woman (who will be playing my likeness's parents in the past tense, and themselves, basically, in the present) - arriving at my house from LA, a bulletproof briefcase handcuffed to one of them. In it contains a videotape, which we proceed to watch. Cut to...1990, and a party full of Hollywood kids. My young likeness, already half-drunk, is taken aside by my blackmailer (played by a certain young Canadian actor), and coerced into playing truth or dare (under threat of being outed - he'd stolen my high school journal, where I've recorded many of my secrets). The truth? What took place during the production of this movie I had starred in (dancing boy blind item #1). The dare? That, again - the dance (unbeknownst to me, my former agent is present, and he is the one really behind the blackmail - the idea is that he'll cut me a deal for violating the NDA, allowing him to have his way with me until I turn 18). But, two of my friends - who also happen to be members of this secret global elite, Hollywood branch - step in, and steal the tape. I don't remember any of this, of course, as I blacked out a short while later. But it's after seeing this tape, and what they did on my behalf, that I know I can trust them with my darkest secret - what happened in hospital, perpetrated by the five members of the industry satanic cult. (This is when/how it's first revealed, but not in this case dramatized.) The bad guys waste no time in making an attempt on my life - all of ours really - firebombing my home; we all barely escape, and most of my wordly possessions are lost. In the end, I have no choice now but to go forward with my story. As a wise man once said, in that first book about wasted youth, "you can't go back." PS Forgot to mention: the truth or dare game was being filmed by one of those present (hence the tape). Also, my former agent was not just present, but literally in the (bedroom) closet at the time, watching through a crack.

It’s the early 2000’s and a hot role for a black woman has just opened up. It comes with a big salary, guaranteed exposure and will almost definitely be a great launchpad for an acting career. ‘It was damn near war,’ a high-level source remembers. ‘Someone’s agent tried to bribe the producers. One actress even tried to sleep with the director. Another tried to intimidate the competition into withdrawing.’ This A list supermodel auditioned, campaigned and got rejected in the first round of interviews. She was bitter for months afterwards. Even blaming her agent. This A list actress, who is and was respected by the Oscars, seemed to be the favourite until this A list superstar emerged late in the process, pounced like a panther and got the role over her. People were not happy with how that went down. A real casing horror story. You’ll laugh when I tell you what the movie was.

Apparently producers forcibly kept her from going on stage though after her co-stars said they would walk off the stage if she went with them. Our actress handled it like a pro and will probably be garnering some real awards for her new hit almost television show.
Actress: Ronni Hawk (number of tweets she had past sent in support of both President Donald Trump and against gun control)
Show/co-stars: Diego Tinoco, Jason Genao, Sierra Capri and Brett Gray ("On My Block")
New hit: ("Stuck in the Middle ")

TEEN CHOICE AWARDS: This former network reality star turned singer is super young. Barely a teen. She was crying last night because some a-hole exec got mad she wasn't wearing a skirt or dress so he could get a hand between her legs. He literally told her this. To her face. Sky Katz (13) ("America’s Got Talent")

Red Meat - Teen Choice Awards: They were like pimps hoping they could catch the eye of this not even old enough to drive teenager and somehow bring her over to their lair. There was no such luck. She is the most in demand underage teenager sex object out there right now and not even the most famous person in her family. The most famous person in the family, also not old enough to drive has been sexually involved with an executive for almost two years and he basically makes sure she will get all the way to A list. He is easily three times her age, but even he didn't have the money for the other family member. The other family member is with someone younger, but still almost three times her age. He is also a billionaire and made it a priority that the media he controls and he controls one of the biggest media empires ever created, features her as often as possible in as few clothes as possible and in the most sexually suggestive ways possible. He has raped her multiple times even though both parties would say it is consensual. How can someone so young consent though? Any influence from elder family members has gone the way of the million (yes million) dollars deposited in their bank account each month and the on call private jets and personal chef all paid for by the billionaire. He is never giving up this trophy. Well, until she turns 18. It will be interesting to see if he somehow makes it all legal and look normal somehow when she turns 18. Maddie Ziegler (14)/Mackenzie Ziegler (15) ("Dance Moms")

You would never expect this A list diva, who is regarded as a living legend and an idol, to be HIV positive, but apparently a leaked memo from her agent eludes to the fact.

Dancing Boy Blind Item: Just now I learned of one of my celebrity cousins, and it's kind of gross. (I mean, why can't I have a nice celebrity cousin like my friend Lou, whose is Ed Norton, or my friend Rosemary, whose is Sissy Spacek [okay Rip Torn too, who robbed a bank - didn't he? - or tried to, but I guess he was drunk or something...]). This is one of Hollywood's bad boys, born in Detroit, and over the years has been known at least as much for his addictions and troubles with anger management (including with his former girlfriend - the leader of a ring of sorts), as for his acting. He's also now been accused and sued for something worse (related to his alleged conduct on a set in 2003). His direct paternal ancestry, including the person I'm descended from, is Native-American.

Pro tip for this married A/A- list mostly television actor who stars in a hit network show. While out to dinner with your former co-star and want to keep your liaison secret from the public and your wife, perhaps don't make a huge scene at the restaurant when they make you wait two minutes for a table.

Dancing Boy Blind Item: So, a little more about that one act - the founding document of the dancing boy saga (and still on the d/l). As with the feature (stage play, in this case, I mean - the movie is separate), we'll likely be putting on a secret one night only show at this one theater. And, if you'd be interested - this will hopefully be in 2019 - we could do an exclusive live stream through CDAN. In it, and at the opening - in a monologue - I'll be introducing myself as the dancing boy (so, blind item revealed). The cast will be some of my players, including former child stars, and introducing new - mostly young and youngish - talent (dunno about all the particulars yet, except Henry, Christina and I in the present tense storyline [which takes place at "my" house - a retreat for this secret global elite] and Anthony Rapp [as my agent] hiding in the closet). Oh, also - the name? As I said, the tentative name was something like "Truth or Dare," but it may just turn out to be "The Dancing Boy: A Hollywood Story" (just like the feature, in others words, and what Wes Anderson did with "Bottle Rocket" - a short and feature with the same title).

She Killed Him: You know a death we don't talk about much is the death of this Academy Award winning/nominated B list actor who was killed by his celebrity girlfriend. Oh, sure, she was not charged, but those closest to him know she was poisoning him and gaslighting him to the point he had no idea what was going on and made a will naming her as the sole beneficiary. Previously his family members had been named. Our celebrity also took out millions of dollars of life insurance policies on him and raided his bank accounts. When she cleared out everything she could while he was living, she upped the dose of what she had been giving him and he died. Then she cashed in on everything and moved on to the next victim.

MTO News just learned of a very DISTURBING development - reportedly about a top female rapper. According to a radio station employee, they saw the rapper take 10 OXY PILLS in front of them. The radio station employee believes that the female rapper is an OPIOD ADDICT, and is a danger to herself. The insider explained, "She was in [the radio station] acting like a diva. But she was clearly on drugs. You can see her [eye pupils] wide open." Its sad to see her like that, because I'm such a big fan." The female rapper, who MTO News has chosen NOT to name for legal reasons, has recently become UNHINGED - and some say that she seems to be spiraling out of control. The radio station employee claims that she witnessed the rapper pop at least 10 OXY pills after the interview was over. The tipster explained, "She took like 10 oxy pills at once. I thought she was going to die. But it didn't even seem to effect her. She took them like she was taking vitamins. She probably has a high tolerance for the pills." But OXY pills are dangerous. The active drug inside the pills is an opioid - similar to heroin. The pills can be extremely addictive. And if too many are taken, it can lead to an overdose. Nicki Minaj

This complemented our other approach of using paparazzi and "fans" to approach him when he went out on the town in major cities including Los Angeles, Las Vegas and NYC. All of these strategies bolstered the designer’s image, leading to substantial coverage in TMZ, a doubling of his Twitter following, increased sales, and most importantly a lucrative deal with a major department store chain."Who AreThey?: From this website which offers crowds on demand. "A popular fashion designer hired Crowds on Demand to further his brand and enhance the celebrity stature of his products to justify price increases and increase sales. At a series of fashion shows and product expos, we provided attractive and well-dressed attendees to create buzz for the designer and to impress top decision makers. They wore his clothes and came up to him and praised his work. "A foreign government hired Crowds on Demand to help generate a positive reception for its newly elected leader during the UN General Assembly. The concern was ensuring that the leader was well received by a US audience and confident for his work at the UN. We created demonstrations of support with diverse crowds. We also used the media primarily local and national outlets to bring more attention to these demonstrations which led to a mostly positive portrayal. The crowds that we deployed drew in more supporters creating a strong presence for this leader at the UN and an improved perception of him by the American public."

Opening Monologue - The Dancing Boy: My name is (my stage name), but readers of Crazy Days and Nights blog will know me as the dancing boy. I was born (my given name) on (my date of birth) in (the location of my birth) – one day after and half a world apart from the coup d'etat in Afghanistan, an event which would upend the life of the man who later did the same to mine. He was a doctor - a former doctor to the Afghan royal family, in fact, dismissed over allegations he had abused one of their own - and the country's leading procurer of dancing boys. He traveled the countryside in a Land Rover falsely emblazoned with red crosses, vaccinating children and setting broken bones for free. His true purpose though was the recruitment of boys into the service of wealthy men, at home and abroad. He lured them with the promise of schooling, bought them from impoverished parents, and – if no one was around – just took them, the defiant ones at gun point, and in chains. Always, they ended up as household slaves, and unwitting entertainers, serially abused by the patriarch, prime minister, or permanent A list celebrity who had purchased them. On the date of my birth, at a checkpoint outside Kabul, agents of the new regime arrested the doctor on charges of treason. It was the first he had heard of the monarchy's fall. Then and there he vowed to go to Hollywood, recruiting – with the promise of fame and fortune, this time – a new generation of dancing boys. He would make good on that pledge, and I would become one of them – a dancing boy of Hollywood.

This drug loving CEO you ALL know by now is on his way out. The Board is slowly inching away from his recent statements. At first, they started leaking some of their differences with the CEO to some journalists, relatively minor publications. Last night, they picked the biggest of newspapers to leak massive differences, including a complaint that he is ignoring their advice. The Board has also retained separate legal counsel. They leaked that last night too. It has become apparent to the Board that the CEO's big recent statement was a complete lie. The Feds leaked their investigation to the big newspapers on purpose the day after the CEO made this big statement. This is basically unprecedented. In recent days, several former high-ranking Feds have gone on TV & accused the CEO of making a fraudulent statement – also unprecedented. The Board doesn't have much liability insurance either, and the details & potential liability of the CEO's recent actions are starting to sink in, and they are getting scared. Don't expect this CEO to be around much longer, a month or 2 at most. If he departs on friendly terms with the Board, the cover story will be - a leave of absence for exhaustion, which will eventually become permanent. If he refuses that, they will fire him. They really have no other choice - it is only a matter of time. Elon Musk ("Tesla")

The Investigator: He was there that night. No one knew that before. Oh sure, they knew he was in town, but not actually there there. It was a lead followed by the man simply known as The Investigator. Apparently he was hired by a life insurance company because of a policy taken out in the name of our deceased singer. That policy was for $15M. It was taken out about six months before the singer died. The beneficiary was someone very close to him. Apparently The Investigator discovered the singer was aware of the policy because he had a medical exam for it. Apparently, the singer thought the policy was just a $500K policy for covering short term expenses in the event of his death. The insurance company has not paid the claim yet. They have been dragging their feet, but the beneficiary, after complaining for several months, suddenly got quiet. Too many complaints was leading to lots of questions. The Investigator was a Secret Service agent back in the day who focused solely on financial crimes. He knows what he is doing. He has spoken to well over 50 people who were present that last day and night of life. The most important piece of evidence he discovered was also the most deadly. Earlier this Spring, he spent two hours talking to a former actress who is probably a B+ list celebrity now. She named a name of a person no one had thought to talk to before. That person was A list in their corner of what they did in the entertainment world and one of the best friends of the B+ lister. The Investigator found out that this person spoke with the deceased singer alone for nearly an hour at about 6pm. They had a history together and trusted each other because of some experiences they shared in the past. The B+ lister also told The Investigator that the hour long conversation was a prelude to a meeting that was going to take place at breakfast the next day. The singer never made it. The B+ lister said the A lister told several people he was supposed to meet the singer the next morning to discuss something very important. Nothing other than that. The B+ lister told several people she has spoken to The Investigator and that he was going to talk to the A lister about what was said. The meeting never happened. Instead, a day or two after the B+ list told people, the A lister was dead. Forced off the road and killed. What did he know? What was he going to meet the singer about? Someone knew there was going to be a meeting the next morning. That same someone knew he couldn't be allowed to meet with The Investigator.

Deceased singer: Chris Connelly (beneficiary Vicky Karayiannis)
B+ lister: Taylor Momsen (Taylor‘s band "The Pretty Reckless" longtime producer Kato Khandwala, calling him "our ringleader" and "our confidant")

The two organizers of the sacrifice are two of the very top officials of the organization that resembles that room name. They brought with them, a special guest. For one of the very few times ever, a woman was allowed inside the grounds. The foreign born escorts are actually ensconced in a secure area that is not within the camp itself. The only sex workers allowed on the grounds itself are the young men. The special guest is A+ list in every sense of the word. All of you know who she is. She has also engaged in some of the most bizarre sex acts with each of the two men mentioned earlier. She has traveled the world with these men, separately and together, engaging in sex acts while pretending to be compassionate. Brutalizing young girls and women to fulfill whatever sick desires they have, knowing they do so with impunity because they are above all laws in those places. They control the law. They control the news. They control it all. The power has gone to their head. The A+ lister has always felt a connection with the event because it is one originally established for artists and still pays lip service to that original mandate. She brought two tweens with her. One male and one female. She began by drawing blood from herself and spreading it over her body before spreading it on the tweens. The tweens were then pricked with a needle and some of their blood was drawn which was then marked on all those who wanted to participate. Those who were chosen to participate then were allowed to explore the tweens how they wanted while our A+ lister encouraged them and participated herself. When every man had finished what they had started, two large men came into the room who had not been there previously and took the tweens away. Most people assume they were set aflame in the annual ritual. Some people think they were given as trophies to a member who has been a long time supporter and has a fondness for young boys and girls. Angelina Jolie

This legendary comedian is no longer with us, but that doesn’t mean the gossip died with him. Although beloved by his fans and missed by his long term wife and children, this comedian has enough historical allegations of sexual assault and harassment to make Harvey Weinstein blush. All of them from young men. Thank God it isn’t Mel Brooks. Dom DeLuise; Don Rickles

This veteran of reality TV who also has acting experience is not meshing well with her current cast mates. Apparently, she’s difficult to work with and shows up to film high. Her cast mates don’t trust her or have much in common with her. She’s lucky there is that one cast member who is always willing to film with everyone. The perpetually stoned reality show participant needs to work on her people skills if she plans to stick around.

This former teen idol, who is attempting to find a place in Hollywood as a serious adult actress, likes to occasionally open up about her dating history, but her publicist keeps a tight leash on the interviews for one big reason. ‘She dated a lot of older guys when she was real young,’ says the source. ‘It’s totally normal to her, but it’s totally creepy to everyone else.’ I guess those revelations will be in the book one day.

According to a "source familiar with the investigation." the way the thing works is this company has employees who trade stolen auto parts for drugs from a cartel. We are not talking about a couple thousand bucks here, but millions and millions of dollars. It would not shock me at all if the CEO was involved. One of his personalities probably thinks of himself as a Pablo Escobar/El Chapo/Tony Montana (using a different instrument of war than a machine gun) type. It would all seem to be kind of a full circle thing if you think about it and how another CEO went down back in the day.

A Dancing Boy Blind: Dunno if I'll actually end up using any of what I sent you yesterday - at least not in the first project, and more specifically not as monologue - but I thought this would be fun to share (just wrote it today). It concerns the person who will be introducing me a the beginning of the one act and its adaptation. (The secret kid brother part is a reference to the fact that in this secret global elite, you're assigned family members - Henry and Christina will not only play my teen likeness's parents in the back in the day storyline, but also his secret parents today.) Top secret for now, but here it is: Good evening. As you may know, my name is **** ********, and I'm a former child actor turned adult actor of mostly tv, including two long-running series on the theme of law and order. What you may not know is that I'm also a member of a secret global elite, or rather its better half - in the Hollywood branch. Recently, our unit was activated for the first time in thirty years, to protect the life of one of its members – the young star of a certain movie, back in the day, that was abused on set, and off, and the project ultimately shelved. Against the wishes of our patron, Genstar Capital Chief Jean-Pierre Conte, as well as all common sense, he'd been telling his story at the Hollywood gossip blog, Crazy Days and Nights. This quickly aroused the interest of our enemies, including his abusers, who would like to silence him for good. That's why we're here in (the place I live now), working as janitors at the local tv station. Let me introduce you to my colleagues, and team mates. One is a former child actor turned adult actor and comic, known best for his scene-stealing role in a 1980s sit com. In it he played opposite his foreign-born mentor, with whom he was often at odds. Next is a former child actor turned adult musician, known most for his appearance in a music video from the same decade. In it, he plays himself at the time – a skateboarder. Which brings me to the dancing boy himself – the cause of all our troubles. I could introduce him by his stage name, half of which he shares with me, but because he's such a pain the backside I'll introduce him by his hated secret codename, Bunny. Everyone, meet my secret kid brother, ***, and his fellow dancing boys. (Enter us three...) The idea is that I'm due a ten minute break at my job (remember: I've been under cover as a marginally employed/homeless person for years, at the behest of our patron/master) and I use it to tell this story.

My guess is this B+ list mostly movie actress who was last seen in that long running car based franchise is going to quit her latest project. The producers had a bunch of no's from actresses when they described the nude and sex scenes to take place in the movie. So, they stopped talking about it and the next thing you know they get an actress signed who would have ZERO interest in anything like that.

Reader Blind Item: In this day and age of full transparency, there is one operation the CIA ran that has still not been revealed. It wasn’t so much to accomplish a mission but to test out a theory on popularity and celebrity. Many years ago, a plan was hatched to see if a celebrity could be created, that is an intelligence operative become a celebrity and then the long term plan was to sue this person to mould public opinion the way that the intelligence agencies wish. As a test, a young military intelligence agent took a new name and identity even changing his country of origin. He had the look and they made the connections and soon he was in films achieving leading man status. His rise was quick as was his almost complete disappearance five or six years later going from Hollywood films to the occasional TV show appearance and straight to video movies coupled with years of no activity at all. This was due to changing priorities at the CIA as well as the feeling they had proved their point so he was given a huge pension and allowed to pursue acting when he felt like it but without the supercharged backing. He was so into the role that he didn’t say a word about it to any of his partners (one of whom was a very famous female sex symbol to a certain generation) before his death. It’s ironic because one of his leading man roles in his heyday was in this film where identity was a theme.

The Sequel: Why didn't he make it? One simple reason. He put his foot down and said he would call a press conference to tell the world what the producers were doing with the kids they were auditioning for no reason because the script didn't actually call for any kids to be in the movie. Oh, sure, they invented a couple background walk on type roles for the kids to appear in to make sure the parents were assuaged. Yeah, sorry you didn't know where your son was all day, but hey, good news he gets to be in the movie now. This actor, who has never probably eclipsed B+ list was portrayed as a troublemaker for spreading the truth. He was effectively blacklisted by any and all people who were friends with the producers which was 75% of Hollywood. There was a group though who were not friends and they have kept the actor at least earning enough to make a living. I can't even watch the film any longer because of what I know what was happening on the set. The actor said the multiple bedrooms used in scenes in the movie would often smell of cigars and booze because that is often where the producers would take the boys after their "tour" of the set. Our actor also says that every other actor on that film set knew what was going on but they valued their careers more than the horrors taking place. Only one other person on set was willing to sacrifice their career and this foreign born actress did. When she walked out, she basically didn't work again for almost two decades.

I have several drafts of this blind in my drafts file. I’m not sure how to say it because I’ve heard of actual experiences regarding this situation in connection with others. There is a city that has a "doctor" it is unclear if he is really a doctor or is falsely prescribing medication that provides more than one person on a reality show with the date rape drug. One of the people had his own allegations already without the use of drugs. The other person seen on the show has allegedly gone out with another male friend (EDITED not connected to the show, actually the person was connected to the show but not on it. And is no longer connected to the show.) where allegedly the date rape drug was use on two people. In one situation a female went to the hospital and allegedly tested positive for the drug after waking up with a person not seen on the show. Her friend declined to leave with the person on the show and felt very ill the next day despite having only two drinks. The story I am being given is that there is someone in this city actively providing the date rape drug to at least two men who were on the show last season whenever they ask. J.D.

Reader Blind Item: These two actors (one deceased, one living but very old) were paired together in two different TV shows in two different decades. They were very good friends and one of their favorite pastimes was picking up girls. Their approach went something like this – The still living actor, who is known for his ability with accents and voices, would approach a group of ladies in a nightclub and take on the role of a ringmaster at a circus, often slipping into a German accent. He would introduce the deceased actor, rumored to be among the most well-endowed in Hollywood, who would unzip his pants and lay his manhood on the table. This approach often worked and the two actors had sex with many ladies this way.

Reader Blind Item: This athlete reached the top of his sport several decades ago. He was in the top five in his sport a number of other years. Since his retirement, he is still involved in his sport in different roles. He is gay and deeply closeted although there have always been rumors. His family is from a conservative area and he does not want to hurt them as they were very supportive and helpful to his career when he was growing up. Awhile back, he was stopped by a cop while cruising a public restroom in this very large city where a prestigious event in his sport occurs annually. He quickly entered a sham marriage in case this story went public which it didn’t. Trouble is last month he was caught again and this time there was written documentation from the police officer in the form of a citation. What will the retired athlete do this time?

You know what has not been discussed the past few days? How this foreign born convicted child molester/child porn producer managed to run around the world basically unimpeded. Even after he was brought in by the feds to supposedly help them out, there he was, gone again in an instant. That former head of an agency had a whole lot to do with it. Don't ever kid yourself that a child pornographer wouldn't be allowed to run free if someone high up decided it would be in the best interests of the higher up. Drug runners are allowed to go free. Killers are allowed to go free. You think someone molesting kids and filming them having sex mattered to this agency head? Was the higher up given money or information to let the child molester run free? I don't know, but the hundreds, if not thousands of kids abused in that network need answers.

Truth is she doesn’t know as she slept with many older men at a very young age which was the practice of the group this relation led. 2.) Coming home one day to discover, her second husband, a B-/C+ actor, sexually molesting one of her sons. She still triumphed over this and various health conditions and made great timeless music.

I think after recapping these shows and listening to my trusted sources, I’m pretty good at determining which storylines are real and which are fake. Today I got a lot of tea from my favorite source and while it is all interesting and will be meted out in time, I was shocked by something my source probably thought would be a minor detail. There is a couple on a reality show who seems to constantly be at odds over their marriage. I totally bought it hook, line and sinker and I think y’all did too! It’s fake news. It’s unclear why exactly they are doing it, I don’t think their cast mates even know it is fake. I suppose it is for more airtime (because, drama) but perhaps they think it is somehow good for business? Ashley and Michael Darby ("Real Housewives of Potomac")

This long-running reality show with a female ensemble cast has gone through many changes in cast members and in the friendships between the women. One frequently seen guest who has had a significant pay upgrade this season is trying to earn her keep by causing a division between two long time friends on the show. The recurring guest is no stranger to the franchise and in an attempt to get in tight with the queen bee, she is in her ear about another cast mate who has been on again, off again with her friendship toward the queen bee. The recurring guest has told the queen bee that her sometimey friend is just riding her coattails to be relevant. While that is probably true, the recurring guest is doing the exact same thing. It’s too bad the queen bee doesn’t see that and actually came for her sometimey friend about riding her coattails. Hopefully the make up session will follow soon.

Dancing Boy Blind Item: Here's a further, top secret sneak preview for the first thing, "The Dancing Boy of Hollywood: A True Story:" I've gone missing, skipped sessions with my shrink, and an appointment for blood work. I haven't answered calls or texts in weeks, including from our patron, Mr. Conte himself. He's concerned that I might have relapsed - again. Henry and Christina are sent to find me, which they do - at this secret retreat in the woods. I'm surprised to hear that I'm missing, and a little mad they think I'm using again. (I'm forced to pee in a cup in front of them, as the last time I was afforded privacy for this purpose, I had bought and passed along a clean sample. Sadly, it did not - of course - match my dna.) They're also there to make a delivery. It's a videotape - not for my eyes, but the vault. I ask: celebrity sex tape? Nearly, Henry says, on both counts, but I'm sure you don't remember it. I guess it must be out takes from my barely legal porno career. It's earlier than that, Christina says. They've been authorized to make a deal: I tell them, under oath, where I've been, and they'll be allowed to show me the tape. I agree. The story cuts to a party in Malibu, June 1991. Henry and Christina discover I've been using - heroin, in this case - and stage an intervention. (It all started in the hospital, a few months before, when I was being treated for injuries from a certain secret mission. I hadn't planned to continue using, but then was told me what happened: our other injured team mate - with whom I was close - didn't make it. It's all about survivor's guilt.) They go to call my parents, and a certain celebrity psychiatrist - who I'd been seeing - but do so from a pay phone, just to play it safe. They flush my drugs before leaving. Already jonesing (it could be hard to find a pay phone in Malibu), my 17 year old likeness is visited by several of my peers. One of them, my leading frenemy (to be played by you know who) - he's the one who stole my journal - has a bag of dope, but I'll only be allowed a hit if I agree to play truth or dare. The truth, of course, is what happened to me on set (during the making of this movie). The dare, of course, is to reenact it. Cut back to the secret retreat. I confess where I'd been: at the death bed of a certain doctor, in LA - the man behind the dancing boys of Hollywood. I believed, naively, that I'd been summoned to hear an apology. It was nothing of the sort. He had, instead, a proposal. He wanted to leave me his empire, built on sex and drug trafficking, and worth billions. But it meant going to the dark side. I decline, returning to my life as a homeless undercover reporter, having just seen the face of evil. (His empire goes to my nemesis - a former member of our secret team, who sold us out on our first mission, leading to this one kid's death - and we'll be taking up more about him in the first film-only short, "Down and Out (in this place I currently live): A Dancing Boy Investigation." And I reveal my biggest secret: what happened, in hospital, at the hands of five members of an industry satanic cult. Back to Malibu, where my former agent literally comes out of the closet, and catches me in a vulnerable position. I've violated the nda, but he's prepared to make me a deal: I get to continue using, but he'll be allowed to have his way with me until I turn 18. At the last minute, my allies swoop in, rescuing me and snatching the tape. Back, again to the present day, where we narrow escape being burned or blown up by the bad guys - they're already aware that I've talked. Fortunately, there's a mirror site due north, where we go for the night. We'll be safe there, for now.

We’re going back a couple of years for this, but the show is still on the air. It’s probably one of the high profile shows around and you would think that would be a dream gig for any television director, but more and more agents are sharing that directing isn’t actually on the cards if you get hired. ‘The stars pretty much direct themselves,’ says the source. ‘They choose how a scene plays out and the tone.

Reader Blind Item - Kindness: This deceased foreign actor starred in a short lived but iconic cult TV show that was highly influential. He also starred several times on this very famous detective show where he played different adversaries of the protagonist. He did act in movies as well sometimes as the villain. The village not in America where he shot his iconic show (and also an episode of an earlier TV show he starred in) was helped by him throughout his life. He worked to get them used as the location for other TV shows and films and financially helped individual families of this rural location. An annual convention for the iconic TV show used to be held there which was also a boost for the local economy. This was also arranged by the star.

Actor: Patrick McGoohan
Iconic cult TV show: "The Prisoner"
Famous detective show: "Columbo"
Earlier TV show: "Danger Man"
"The Village": Portmeirion, Gwynedd, North Wales

Reader Blind Item - Kindness: This occurred on the set of a science fiction themed TV show decades ago. The show only lasted a couple of seasons but did become a cult show in syndication and was briefly rebooted a few decades later. The lead actor , who is still alive, was tall and handsome and should have probably been a bigger success than he was. Most of the other TV series he was in didn’t make it past the first season. His two other greatest successes were in soap operas both daytime and night and in several appearances in an important role on this much more successful sci-fi show that took a cue from his original cult show. He also starred in both cinematic and TV movies primarily in supporting roles. This particular day on the set there was a chase scene being shot in an outdoor market which was covered by a tent. It was supposed to be midday so the tent was full of extras. A fire broke out during the shoot and quickly spread via the tent. The lead actor ran through the fire and tore a hole so all the people could escape. He himself did not leave until everyone else was already out. His jacket caught fire but he took it off quickly and he was not burned. This is mentioned briefly in a documentary about the series.
Actor: Roy Thinnes
Science fiction themed TV show: "The Invaders"
Soap operas: "General Hospital"; "One Life To Live"; "Falcon Crest"; "Hotel"
More successful sci-fi show: "The X-Files"

The Dealer: This A list mostly movie actor who all of you know has a drug problem. It is probably going to get worse. His dealer got arrested so he reached out to these back in the day A listers who don't act any longer. They put him in touch with their dealer. That dealer takes very special care of them because they have been going to him for almost 15 years. The problem is that he doesn't really care about any of his other customers and has been responsible for the death of at least four celebrities and countless others.

Actor reaching out: Johnny Depp
A listers who don’t act anymore: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
#1 - Academy Award winning actor: Philip Seymour Hoffman (Manhattan apartment)

Wrong Direction: Everyone is assuming that this recent Fourth Estater (the profession of journalism) was killed because of something being looked into. It was more about something given up. Other than the one killed, there was a victim. That victim has periodically hit up the mogul for cash over the years because it was the mogul that first began abusing the boy when he was really just a boy. With him was the person who mentored the disgraced director. Together they would give the boy a few bucks over the years to keep him quiet. That boy, now a man told the mogul he was going down and was bragging about what happened. The mogul decided to show what would happen if the man kept talking. Ever since it did happen, the man has gone radio silent. It looks for now like the mogul got what he wanted.

Dancing Boy Blind Item: Here - finally - is what happens in the very first dancing boy project, the live and adapted one act, "The Dancing Boy of Hollywood: A True Story:" It all takes place at my high school graduation party, in Malibu - June, 1991. After being injured several months earlier on my team's first mission (this is the secret global elite stuff, Hollywood branch), I'd been given painkillers in hospital. I might have stopped taking them, except that I was told - finally - that my close friend and team mate had died of his own injuries (survivor's guilt, and all). By now, I'm a full blown addict, and the story opens with two of my friends - Henry and Christina (their young likeness's, I mean) - staging an intervention. After I agree to it, they go off to find a pay phone to call Dr. Drew (the pay phone part just to play it safe, although as it turns out it could be hard to find a pay phone in Malibu). Then, in comes my frenemy (to be played by a certain young Canadian actor), with a bribe: he'll shoot me up one last time if I agree to play truth or dare. Already jonesing, I take the deal, revealing what happened on the set of a certain movie, and after that being forced to perform a dance. My former abuser(s) show up, promising not to pursue legal action (for violating the nda) if I go with them (where I'd be abused until I turn 18). My frenemy, in a moment of conscience, offers himself up instead, and he goes off with them. I nod off, and wake up to find my friends, parents, and Drew. The game, the dance - all of it - seemed only to be a bad dream (it wasn't).

My guess is she will win an Oscar for acting this year.

I'm not sure how he exactly plans to make this happen, but this former A list mostly television actor who had a network hit back in the day is on a hit almost television show. He thinks he can use his online army of fans to spread rumors about the female lead and get her kicked off the show, which would allow him to be the focus. Considering the name of the show, I don't think he has a chance. He has always been such a tool.

The Tapes: Everyone knows they exist. That is not a secret. Well, I mean, it is a secret to most people but not the participants or those close to them. This is not a hidden camera thing. The battle over these tapes has been going on for just about two decades. What do the tapes contain? Lots of sex and a whole lot of coke. For the first few years after the recordings were made, this A list politician tried to acquire them from his best friend who also happened to make the recordings. The best friend made the recordings of himself and his ex-girlfriend who now was the girlfriend of the politician. The girlfriend wanted them so the politician tried to get them. He was probably going to get them until the new girlfriend of the best friend intervened. She said they might come in handy down the road. She was certainly prescient. They are worth millions now to the right buyer. There is a new person in this world though who has no idea the recordings exist and it would be a major bomb dropping if they got out. For the first time in a long time, the original group is talking about them again and trying to make a deal. My guess is there will be no deal. Way too valuable.

The offspring would get crushed by the rejection and subsequent trashing the actress would do on social media. Paris Jackson

Birdie Blind Item: Here's one from back in the day: We now know who won't be attending this convention of sorts, which is a kind of live, multi-day shout show. This story concerns however someone who will be attending. It takes place back in the day, at the height of his fame - owing entirely to this one character he played. You'll know him by what he wore. One day, at a glass and china shop in the valley, the clerk made the mistake of making eye contact with him - you were never to do that. He flew into a rage, shattering vases, hurling crystal angels against the wall, and finally overturning a life-sized glass carousel horse. The flying glass injured staff and customers alike; several of them, including a mother and her young son, had to be hospitalized. The network, of course, made the bad press and charges go away. Apparently, it wasn't the first or last time.

Dancing Boy Blind Item: This one just today from my shrink, who as a young man - then a lifeguard - made a cameo in a major work of non-fiction. You see: there had been a murder on the beach, and he was subsequently visited by a man in white (who was writing this book). It's theme? A road trip of sorts, which was not without controversy - including even of the legal kind. The book itself was not without controversy, with some believing it was more like "non-fiction." The thing is, my shrink spent years talking with other people featured in or interviewed for the book, and always came back with the same answer: the accounts were, much like his, all true. Also: while the mission of the journey - to unite east and west - failed, I would many years later attend the birthday party of the icon they didn't meet (yes, that was me).

Bits And Pieces
#1 - This A- list actress who all of you know and has a LOT going on in her life right now has her PR team going full effect in tabloid commenting systems defending the actress and trashing the most recent public ex of the former significant other of the actress. Jennifer Garner/Ben Affleck/Lindsay Shookus

#2 - At a huge charity concert held in the past few weeks there was some big drama. Great folks all the way around, fun times back stage. What is interesting is there was a lot of chatter backstage about another iconic band whose members were invited to join in on stage with the band too. One member of that band is a total a-hole and was making diva-like demands, so it didn't happen. Too bad because it would have been cool. What is more pathetic is that these guys could have used the boost since most of them have had a lot of money woes, including tax problems and have a concert coming up that they can't give away tickets to... some of these idiots just can't get out of the way of their own egos.
#3 - There is drama about a statue for the deceased rocker. There is currently a conflict between a couple of the charities involved, the widow and a local government. Apparently the widow wants the city to pony up $$ to find a permanent place for the statue and to maintain it. The latest gossip is that the government does not want to get involved in another public facing effort that involves money (i.e. a statue) that will bring any criticism upon them. It wasn't like the rocker necessarily expressed adoration for this city, but he also did what he was told, at least for a while. Chris Cornell/Vicky Karayiannis/Seattle's Museum of Pop Culture

The alleged suicide happened in a far away overseas country, which has been in the news very recently for other reasons. The victim had exposed an elite pedophile ring comprised of that nation's former political rulers. The official story of suicide is being questioned by many, including the family. The deceased had no history of mental illness or depression. Those in the deceased's former line of work tend not to use a gun belonging to someone else to commit suicide. The body was found with a gunshot to the back of the head, outside the victim's home, near a bush. They didn't even try very hard to cover this one up. That was probably the point, to send a message. The people responsible were next in line to be exposed. They don't want anybody else attempting to figure out who the deceased was about to expose next.

Victim: Mark Minnies
County: South Africa
Elite pedophile ring: explosive book, "The Lost Boys Of Bird Island" - co-authored with former journalist Chris Stey exposing apartheid ministers Magnus Malan, John Wiley, a third unnamed minister and businessman Dave Allen's paedophile ring

Dancing Boy Blind Item: By which, I mean, who exactly - the one I have in mind for the part? He's a former child actor turned reporter then lawyer of this one kind (which is ironic, given his most high profile role) turned reporter again. Back in the day, he played the young likeness of an actor who recently lost his agent. For allegations of misconduct? Nope. For his words/views - especially on this one platform. The movie, in the director's preferred form, is considered a classic - one of the better flicks of its genre. The domestically released version is a mess, and was a critical and box office failure. When I first saw it, way back when, I was really taken by the performances, including by the young actors who played the leads as teens. He in particular - and I mean this in the best possible way - has the eyes of the devil.

You want some gossip from the strangest places? OK, so this former A- list syndicated actress who was an A+ list celebrity at one point stopped seeing this celebrity because she feared for her life and was tired of the hassle. So, he started hooking up with another woman. The problem is that woman, who is a civilian, is married and is now pregnant. Apparently she was in on the plan. If she can give birth to the baby, he then can stay where he is forever because of the laws of the country. Pamela Anderson/Julian Assange (Ecuador)

Several months ago, a certain a-hole serial rapist finally got fired from a series on an almost-TV network. You would think that by now, everyone involved can just move on with their lives, right? Except this a-hole is a prominent member of a cult you all know. Losing his job meant a lot less money for the cult. The cult keeps stalking his accusers, even now. The cult wants to deter any more of these situations from happening in the future. Surveillance cars with expired license plates outside houses for days, tapping of communications, and direct threats - sometimes face to face out of the blue. When the victims report the stalking to the police, it never seems to go anywhere. Why? Because the cult spreads a lot of money around the local police department just for this purpose.

Thanks to its passionate fan base, the television adaption of The Witcher is one of the hottest properties on Netflix’s slate and the streaming service hopes the show will not only succeed HBO’s Game of Thrones as the leading epic fantasy on the air, but also beat off stiff competition from Amazon’s Lord of the Rings and HBO’s very own Game of Thrones prequel(s). It’s starting to all feel very real because we’re told exclusively that the lead role (Geralt) has been offered to an actor. We’re fully expecting a very divided response from the passionate fan base when it’s announced. I can’t say much more, but I will say it’s a super choice. PS: The rest of the cast is mostly unknowns.

Teen Lust: This A- list mostly television actor struck gold with a long running network series. Since then, he has not had much luck. Apparently his behavior led to the cancellation of a show because the producers were tired of dealing with him. In his most recent series, it was canceled because he was head over heels for an actress who decidedly did not feel the same way. Our actor wouldn't stop pursuing the actress. She complained and actually quit the show before it was canceled just to avoid him. That led to the actor stalking her and showing up unannounced in front of her home and even telling her parents he could help her land other jobs. He would have gifts delivered to her house everyday. When the parents of the actress complained to the producers, they gave a warning to the actor but the actor kept right on doing it. The show was not doing that great, but it made the decision so much easier for the network to avoid any future liability on their part.

We all know that this handsome middle-aged actor favours models that are well over half his age and some that are of questionable legality. What’s unique about that in Hollywood? Nothing unfortunately. Our actor, however, has made committed show business suicide and made enemies around town for muscling in on other middle-aged actors’ model girlfriends that are half their age. ‘He stole [famous director]’s regular squeeze,’ one source tells me. ‘He kept hitting on the sidepiece of [famous actor],’ another says. ‘Despite her informing him that she was involved.’ It might explain why he’s been called out on his practices before.

It was one of the most contentious TV breakups in recent memory, so it stands to reason that the inevitable rebound will be equally as divisive. But rumor has it that an unnamed drama series is finally giving the remaining half of the aforementioned fizzled-but-popular romance a brand-new love interest. By all accounts, the incoming character, casting for which is now underway, is going to be a major addition to the ensemble (the words "series" and "regular" have been tossed around). It also sounds like this newcomer will fill a need that his/her predecessor could not, thus helping pave the way for a romantic connection. What else can we divulge about this would-be, could-be courtship? Hmm…. The relationship would be interracial, possibly stymied by the new character’s own, recent breakup, and… I’ve probably said too much! Alex Danvers ("Supergirl")

A Premier League football club has denied that one of its star players has been caught on camera having a foursome with three women after the video went viral on social media. The explicit one-minute clip became a social media hit after fans shared it on Whatsapp, claiming it showed the top footballer - who is described as being 'a household name' - in action. But the player's club have denied it is him in the footage. The footballer whose name is being linked to the video cannot be named for legal reasons. None of the women in the leaked sex tape are his wife. But a source told The Daily Star: 'It will only take a couple of idiots who have seen the footage to start singing about it and a terrace chant could take hold.' It is not the first sex tape scandal to hit a Premier League player. In 2015 a number of Leicester City's budding stars were filmed taking part in a vile orgy in which a local girl was racially abused in Bangkok. And in 2016 a former Aston Villa player issued a grovelling public apology after a sex tape featuring him in a trio with a team-mate and an unidentified woman went viral. Antonio Luna and friend Sergi Enrich were quickly identified by fans after the X-rated video ended up on social media.

He’s one of most iconic actors and his personal life has often received a lot of media attention, but there’s a huge detail often omitted by the press and it would be perfect for the #MeToo movement. ‘It was wrong,’ says a source exclusively to me. ‘The people around him should taken care of him and they didn’t, and that’s how a monster crept in.’ I cannot get the source to expand further, but they continue to hint that our actor was sexually abused by an father figure in the industry when he was coming up.

One night at a very boozy dinner the kinky housewife announced that she dressed up as a clown and also a toy solider to keep her man sexually happy. She confessed that he likes to be naked watching her march around to the ‘nutcracker’ ballet music dressed up in red pants and wearing a tall black hat.

Dancing Boy Blind Item: Here's another update about that first thing: "The Dancing Boy of Hollywood: A True Story." It's back to being a multi-part, or rather multi-period/setting story, set in part in the present day, and in part (now) in the recent past as well as back in the day. Also: parts of it (past, I mean) will be projected rather than performed. When I first thought of doing it that way - having the story of my high school graduation party be shown as a tape rather than performed live - I was kind of like: is that even a thing? So, research...Most assuredly there is "digital theatre," although what a stupid term and it sounds like your average pretentious mfa in theater class project (nuns chanting on film or something while small child dismembers a doll with a kitchen knife onstage). But then I'm like wait no this is docudrama - epic theater, it turns out (if I had bothered to actually take a theater history class, I'd have known this). And going back to the 20s, with the works of German-born producer Erwin Piscator in particular, the use of other media, and especially projections, was commonplace. So the 1991 story as well as what happened at the death bed of this doctor (which I secretly filmed), at least, will appear as projected films.

After that event, the singer/musician changed everything he hadn't changed over to the new wife. Neil Young married Daryl Hannah

The number one lesson in Hollywood is to never walk away from a hit show. I have said this from almost day one of the site. Well, this talented actor who stars on a hit cable show is doing just that. He thinks he is going to be a huge movie star and doesn't need the television thing. He is walking away which is going to shut the whole show down for good. That upcoming movie of his will be big, but he will never be A+ list. Rami Malek ("Mr. Robot") (Freddie Mercury/"Bohemian Rhapsody")

Why yes, that was the beard for this foreign born permanent A+ list athlete coming out of an actor's suite at that big film festival. Apparently she has had a crush on him a long time and took the chance to hook up with him after meeting at a party. The actor, a foreign born A+ list mostly movie actor has a significant other who was probably only expecting him to cheat with his frequent former co-star.

The Videos: This former A- list mostly television actor who all of you know has had some issues with the #MeToo movement. He has always been skeezy and I don't think anyone was shocked when women came forward with some stories about him or just his general a-hole behavior on almost every set he has worked on his adult life. He is one of those guys who likes acting for two reasons. Money and because he thinks it makes every woman want to have sex with him. Because of the issues he had last year, he installed a state of the art video system in his home. Every room, including bathrooms, is wired for sound and video. Apparently he has a dozen installed in his bedroom alone. Every single angle in every corner of the house is covered. He does this, he says for proof if anyone ever accuses him of assault or harassment. I'm not sure what he does when he leaves the house to protect himself, but the thing is, at home he says they are just for protection. A way for him to prove what happened. Umm, then why are you showing people the recordings? Do the women know you are showing them having sex? Why did you give the password to a few of your friends so they could watch live when you let them know a woman is coming over? Jeremy Piven

We’ve spoken about how brutal the industry can be to actors that are losing their hair before, but this is one of the craziest stories I’ve ever been told and it comes from a good source at a major studio. Apparently this A list actor, who plays a superhero, has been warned that if he doesn’t do anything about his dying hair situation, then he’ll be forced to wear a wig and not just on set either. I guess it’ll be interesting to see what happens with his hair follicles.

Pretty interesting thoughts from this B+ list celebrity offspring who claims that A- list singer/bad actress will never get over the offspring's boyfriend. Umm, she might want to rethink that statement. The A- lister has changed her phone number three times in the past five or six months because the offspring's boyfriend won't leave the A- lister alone.

There is a battle going on that is much more vocal than it used to be about charging this former A list dual threat actor with murder. It used to be 90/10 for no, but now it is closer to 50/50 in the DA's office. Apparently the only thing really holding back any charge is the case will be really expensive to prosecute and it is really difficult to weed out the credible statements and facts from people and the conspiracy stuff. Robert Wagner (Natalie Wood drowning)

A Dancing Boy Blind: Another day, another random d/l discovery: my other first year college roommate - known at the time for setting the next door kid's bed and belongings and nearly the building on fire (no, not very original, or especially funny); the first one was the one who introduced me to the cellist, and subsequently died of an o/d. It appears he married a Muslim woman and converted to Islam. Wonder what he'll think of the dancing boy saga... Cellist blind item

No Happily Ever After - Kind Of Old Hollywood: This is not super Old Hollywood. If it involves television, than maybe it just back back in the day rather than Old Hollywood. She was definitely popular through her tween and teen years but those were also the years that she blamed for ruing the rest of her life and every relationship she had. It also left her childless. She got her big break when she was 11 or 12. Right in the tween sweet spot. She came in as a replacement on one of the biggest daytime shows in television. It was a television show which the studio used more for pleasing investors than any real money from advertisers on the show. For two years, our actress was passed around to older men as a way to get them to invest in the bigger company which was going through a financial squeeze because of a very very very big investment. At that time, it had yet to pay off like it has today. She was just one of the dozen or so that were passed around. The main star was the only one who was not passed around because she was the personal play toy of the man everyone called by one name. He made sure through her good and bad years that she worked as much as she wanted and he provided her six figure checks twice a year to help her live her best life. Anyway, back to the subject of her blind. One of the men brutally raped and beat her because he said she wasn't trying her best. Umm, she was 13 maybe at that time and he was probably 50. He beat her so badly that she was fired from the show and suffered damage to her body that wouldn't ever allow her to have kids. Fast forward a few years. She was probably 15 at that time and was on another hit show. This time there were no men passing her around. She loved being on the show. It was also at that time she got introduced to a permanent A+++ lister. He always liked his girlfriends young. He must have been in his mid to late 20's and was at that point an A lister. He saw her on the show and the next thing you know they were together. They split though when he found out she had been raped. He considered her damaged goods. He also started talking about it to other industry friends and within a couple years when her run on the show ended, she couldn't get any more work and she never really acted again.

She’s one of the biggest actresses on the face of the planet, a huge favorite of men and women alike, and has always had a firm non-nudity clause in her contract, but our GL sources tell me that not only does she test the nudity waters in an upcoming flick, but she’s also now open to the idea. I guess that very subtle breast work (not a boob job) is paying off. This could be big news in the tabloids. Emma Stone

As I wrote here several months ago, one of the reasons this A+ list mostly movie actor took a role in an ensemble movie was for the chance to hook up with this foreign born A/A- list mostly movie actress who is an Academy Award winner/nominee.

In the latest installment of the seemingly never-ending saga of a certain singer's family, the situation is becoming laughable. One family member's social media gibberish is the usual, but allegedly this person is now blabbing to conspiracy theorists too. One of the conspiracy theorists allegedly leaked information to another, who then passed it to another, which resulted in public claims being made that have not been substantiated. Oops. The sad part is that these people don't care if information is inaccurate, as long as it continues to substantiate their version of things. Chris Cornell was the main financial backer for a documentary "The Silent Children", about child sex trafficking. After he died, the project was cancelled. Chester Bennington was going to appear in the documentary. His band Linkin Park was going to contribute music.

Left out of the explanation of this former actress turned A list singer about her now boyfriend is that their first kiss happened right after he hung up the phone with his girlfriend at the time. Kind of changes the whole tenor of the story when you hear it that way. He has said it that way which is how it came out. He bragged to his friends about how it happened.

This foreign born vowel loving singer/rapper who sounds a lot like another singer/rapper has come to the realization that she has burned far too many bridges at this point to succeed in her chosen career. She has also burned too many bridges to succeed in other ways she used to earn a great deal of money.

Everyone just laughed nervously and nodded a lot while dealing with this permanent A+ list singer from a singing family at an event. She was so far out of it, no one had any idea what she was saying. She was in her own world and then back in the present and was making horribly off color jokes and comments to people which was really making people uncomfortable.

Unholy Hatred: Back in the day, the music biz was a lot different than it is now. Rock bands could start in someone's garage or basement and with some luck and talent, get famous overnight. Unscrupulous managers and record labels often roped these hungry musicians into fine print contracts which made promises of money and gave lots of perks. The perks were often women, drugs, and the trappings of fame. What many of the bands didn't realize was that they were actually paying for this excess, to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars in debt to managers and record companies. Only a few really savvy musicians didn't fall into that trap, and today's blind is about one of them. Our musician was a child prodigy and extremely talented in his genre. We'll call him Mr. R. He joined forces with another legendary musician and formed a band that was critically acclaimed in their time, but may not be so much on the radar of younger people now. Mr. R was not only a creative force in this band, but was also the brains behind their finances. Mr. R's grandfather was a shrewd immigrant store owner who taught Mr. R accounting and bookkeeping when he was young. Mr. R would often visit his grandfather's store and sit with him as he went over his ledger books, while his grandfather taught him the basics of running a business. Turns out that not only was Mr. R musically gifted, but he also had a photographic memory for numbers. This was indeed a valuable skill and even landed Mr. R a part time bank teller job as a teenager in his town, which was unheard of at the time. Mr. R's bandmates were also a dynamic individuals as well. The most noteable of them I'll call Mr. J. Mr. J also came from a hardscrabble immigrant background and had been trying to make it in the music business for years when he met and joined forces with Mr. R. Together they knew they had a genius combination of talent and would be a huge success in the rock n' roll world. Not only was Mr. R a gifted musician, he was also ahead of his time in terms of marketing and branding. Mr. R also understood that merchandising was also going to be an important part of the business, which netted the band a lot of money in the future. In addition, he designed an innovative business plan for the band while keeping a tight fist on the band's finances. The band did indeed become very successful and was also critically praised for some of their work. The problem is that over time, Mr. J became insanely jealous and resentful of Mr. R's talents and financial savvy. Mr. J complained to anyone who would listen that Mr. R was exerting too much control over the band's business and financial matters. The sad part is that thanks to our musician, Mr. J was very wealthy and had been for the most part protected from predatory managers and contracts due to Mr. R's shrewd business practices. What had also helped was that Mr. R had met an infamous billionaire who gave him a lot of valuable financial advice that he was able to implement in managing the band's finances. This did not matter to Mr. J though, because he was too blinded by his own ego, too many drugs and just greed in general to appreciate the work that Mr. R had done. This irrational jealousy towards Mr. R eventually boiled over in an extreme way when Mr. J physically attacked him and almost killed him while they were on tour. It was at this point that Mr. R decided to leave the band, which he did and never looked back. The band continued on in various incarnations, doing well for a number of years more. What isn't widely known is that Mr. R's savvy business acumen also protected his financial interests AFTER he left the band as well. Mr. J was livid when he realized that not only were Mr. R's interests totally protected in their financials, but they were also irrevocable. This meant that Mr. J could not cut Mr. R out of any future profits from his past work with the band. Of course Mr. J spent innumerable hours with lawyers and accountants trying to find loopholes which could be used to eliminate Mr. R's piece of the revenue stream from his past work, but it could not be done. The financials were brilliantly structured, similarly to an irrevocable Trust - the infamous billionaire's advice had clearly been put to good use. All the band members shared equal parts of the money, and if one of them died, then a portion of their money would go to their surviving relatives and the other portion would revert back to the surviving band members. Once all the band members were dead, then the money would go into a Trust-like entity which would pay out monies to surviving descendants in perpetuity. This was ironclad and Mr. J was enraged that it could not be changed to steal monies from Mr. R that he was legitimately entitled to. Mr. J harbored his extreme hatred of Mr. R for years about this, even though Mr. R's savvy business dealings helped make Mr. J a millionaire many times over. When there was a later phase in Mr. J's career in which he was extremely successful both commercially and critically, he was unable to enjoy that fully due to his rage. This is because Mr. R had contributed several of the ideas for the project many years before, and had carefully documented them. And because of that, Mr. J's lawyers had no choice but to write Mr. R a big fat check. The sad part is that not too long after, Mr. R was found violently murdered in his home. The murder has never been solved, and since Mr. R never married or had children, his piece of the band's earnings finally reverted back to the band and Mr. J.
