Which Athlete? There is an athlete out there who is a PERFECT comparison to Bonds. And this person IS in their respective HOF. (Not baseball) For most, I would say the "name" is as big if not bigger than Bonds in both sports and, I guess, pop culture. Like Bonds, this athlete set records which will more then likely never be broken. Like Bonds, this athlete was better than their competitors (the best on the planet) by a VERY significant margin. Like Bonds, this athlete was widely speculated to be using PEDs on absurd levels yet never failed a drug test and always maintained their innocence. Unlike Bonds, this athlete is considered a groundbreaking athlete. This athlete is revered and loved. And, as I said, in their respective HOF. Havent read any articles on the comparisons which are interesting and so similar. This athlete did this in our lifetime and on the biggest stage in the world. Who is it? (Note: not an obscure sport. One of the biggest sports on planet earth. "Real" sport, not pro wrestling. This sport is represented in the Olympic Games and has been for a very, very long time). Florence Griffith Joyner

Musings Of A Former A+ List Tweener: The quotes are from the former A+ list tweener. I provided the descriptions. "The network brass at this huge family of networks is complicit in allowing predators to continue to work for their company, many times after they are exposed. On my last series, I personally witnessed the producers and show runners fondle, kiss, hug, and even forced male actors to sit on their lap. One of the kids on the show was just 12 years old. What I saw shocked me to my core and honestly wouldnt be surprised if my decision not to play the game had something to do with me being fired. It was the most uncomfortable, unprofessional, sadistic, agenda-driven set Ive ever worked on. And on top of that, the honchos in charge seemingly conditioned everyone on the set to become accustomed to this inappropriate behavior." (One of the producers of the show, who is A+ list has already been exposed and has the full support of at least two female permanent A listers.) "The other two are currently slated to begin another show at the network. I think its important for children, especially child actors to understand the dangers of the industry. And how parents can be easily manipulated and forced to allow their children to be put into adult situations. I was not a minor when I started working on this series. The show I did before that was a massive hit and there was nothing inappropriate ever that took place on set. I worked on that show during my early to mid teen years. The last show, even though it was a hit was a different experience for me because it was the first time I openly witnessed grooming of young talent and physical contact between older men and young actors. One of the first episodes of the show was directed by (former A- list mostly television actor from back in the day who had a hit network show and has been spoken about in this space before.) One day after filming I discovered him using drugs with two of my adult cast mates on the set. They made me promise to stay quiet. And it was definitely one of the worst experiences of my life. Im not seeking any attention. My goal is too simply do my part to help expose some of the darkness in the industry. The sad thing is there are so many honest, hard-working genuine people that work on sets. From hair and makeup and scenic/ special effects artists, gaffers, craft service, etc. that do just want to go to work and be home at night to spend some time with their kids. Then there are legitimate executives and predators who hide behind charity and live as though they are 18 years old and in High School, sexualizing underage talent at parties and even on set in plain view. The reason people are afraid to speak out is job security. Getting a job in the entertainment business is a matter of relationships, connections, and getting hired based on who you know. No working professional wants to risk losing their source of income. Tutors who speak out on set are fired. The people who are responsible for looking out for the welfare of minors on set are very complicit in allowing the behavior to continue."

Truth. Will. Out - A Himmmm Blind: This will hardly be a blind to those who've been here for years. But when you've known the truth all this time, and are no longer bound by the promises you made due to their impending exposure and someone's approval? You can start to tell others. It's not the crime that gets you. It's the cover up. The night this actress (long time A lister) and her hubby (probably permanent A- lister just because of his television and movie history and name) got together with this other actor (permanent A- list mostly movie actor) was the epitome of tragic. Too much booze, too much drugs, too much bottled-up hostility. She was drunk and angry. She mocked him and threatened to cuckold him, including about something she caught him doing years before which caused their split. That alone would've destroyed his career and life. The fight was epic. The guest really did leave for bed, though he heard it all happen. As did the worker on board. The hubby was so drunk and angry, he really didn't remember it all. But according to his memories, and those of the long-silent guest, this is what happened: Just the two of them, yelling and shoving. She retreated indoors, he went after her. When she got back outside, she demanded to be taken home - already had her coat on. She said she would call her lawyer and he can stay behind. Since the house and money were hers, she'd get the kids too. She had it with him, his cheating, and his drinking and pouting. He wasn't going to let her go at all. He actually reached to grab her when she pulled away, slipped and fell. He could've saved her right there. That would've been easy and could've just been a spat. But he mocked her. She screamed, yelled, begged for help. He taunted her. The guest came to see what was happening and tried to help. The hubby told him she was just playing hysterics for attention - she could save herself he said. He escorted the guest back inside forcibly. She continued out there, cold, screaming - for several minutes. The worker had been yelling to her he'd help her. He banged on the hubby's door. He was told to go to bed and mind his damn business. The three men argued. Then they realized - she wasn't screaming anymore. Hubby panicked, and they all went out to try and find her. She'd given up and was already gone. They said it happened so fast. Maybe in drunk time, but in reality? It was over 20 minutes. These three drunk men, very drunk and high. Nothing they did worked. The guest demanded to call for help or be taken home. The hubby threatened him, said he was part of it too. The hubby sat outside for hours, drinking heavily, crying. The scared, weak and stoned worker finally took him inside when he passed out. When they awoke, they knew how deep of shit they were in. They tried to get their story straight. If one went down - they all would. The first call they placed was to wake up a legendary Hollywood attorney/fixer. He in turn called (permanent A+ list singer) who really was a friend to the actress. The hubby confessed all to him. It was the booze, the anger - he never thought she was in that much danger. He pleaded for mercy. That legendary singer/actor was angry, but he understood how it could happen. The cover-up began instantly. There were tons of leaks in their story. But anytime a discrepancy popped up? The powers that be were reminded they were elected officials and stop digging because it won't bring her back. You have no idea how powerful (the A+ list singer) and his legal and illegal pals were in those days. They even had the White House, not to mention City Hall. No local yokels were gonna make waves. Besides, the hubby was so destroyed. And he really was. He tried suicide many times. He confessed to her daughters, which nearly destroyed one of them. But they too realized that all this time later would not bring her back. But people knew the truth. They spoke. On the record. Even with varying degrees of murder or manslaughter, it's the cover up that'll get you. So no matter the final outcome of the case, even all this time, he doesn't have long to live naturally. But that cover up? A lot of them are still around. That one long-silent guest? Not so silent. He too is up in age and cleared his conscience. Thing is - he did it in 1985. Yep. It's been on record since then. Way past time for this to come out. It's tragic for those young ladies now, but...Truth. Will. Out. Always.

I Blame Him: This week it is all coming out about what a horrible sex predator this designer is, but I blame him for the downward spiral he put this iconic type figure on which caused her early death. Over the years, when I would speak to her about him, her first response was always he helped me so much. That was a rote answer she gave to anyone. Once she got to talking though, things were a little different. I think she always considered what he did as help, but the hoops he made her jump through were extensive. She probably slept with three or four dozen guys to help him land deals or get extensions on financing or a new line of credit or get a deal on advertising. She says there was always another reason for her to sleep with yet another guy. Not all of those experiences were pleasant. They treated her like a piece of meat because she was just there as part of a business transaction. I'm not trying to make this particular blind all that political, but a long time ago I wrote that this now A++ list celebrity paid for some of the financing of one of straight to video movies once she slept with him. Back when she first started with the designer, he wanted some kind of tax break and he offered her up to a then A++ list celebrity who was at the time the same status as the A++ lister above is now. For close to six or seven years after they started working, she would do this for the designer. When she would travel all over the world, there would always be what you saw on the red carpet, but what you wouldn't see is who was waiting in that country for her to have sex with for the designer. She started using drugs an abusing them and dealing with the pain and all of you know where it sent from there.

I wrote about this actress earlier this week I think. Maybe it was late last week. Probably permanently A list. She has been in some of the biggest movies of all time and has had a career lasting well over four decades. I wrote about her undying allegiance to the child molester because of what she knows and cant really go back on it. Apparently there was a huge conference late last year in a Midwestern state. Our actress was asked about all the Harvey stuff and said it had never happened to her and she had never seen that kind of thing, probably because she wasn't pretty enough. She also said she didn't believe it happened in Hollywood all that much and seemed offended that she was being asked those types of questions when she had told audience members they could ask anything they wanted. She thought they would all want to ask about the book she was promoting. Diane Keaton (Indiana Conference for Women)

Stood Around And Laughed: A few years back there was a movie made starring a group of women who were all probably equal status in the movie. There was also an A- list mostly movie actor involved. He got involved simply because he knew the director and knew the movie would be filled with teen actresses. The group of women were probably all A-/B+ list actresses who all of you know. They stood around and laughed while the teen actresses and walk ons were subjected to constant sexual harassment and groping by the actor and director. If the extra allowed it she would get a walk on role. If she had sex with one of them she would get a speaking part. The actor and the director were like kids in a candy store. The wife of the director was around but didn't say anything either because that is how she got her start and said it was just the way things were and if the extras and walk ons didn't want to do it, they could leave. A few of those extras are speaking out and really calling out the group of A-/B+ list actresses who didn't care because it wasn't happening to them and never said anything. They would encourage the actor and director by laughing and clapping when some random actress would have her top ripped off or groped from behind when she wasn't expecting it.

The Dancing Boy - There Is A Picture: From a long ago friend of The Dancing Boy who got in touch with him after reading the blind. I can confirm that I know the identity of the "dancing boy." He was a longtime childhood friend of mine, and I was the only one let in to visit him in the hospital back then. The studio people didn't really trust the parents, only his sister. She was one of those very Christian girls, selling no-sex-before-marriage in mega churches and on talk shows even before it was a thing. In fact, I think she pretty much helped to make it a thing. It was all bs of course, but he was afraid of her, and she kept him in line, which was what the producer and everyone wanted. You should've seen the letter she wrote him when he came out to her a couple years later. And because you know the world always seems to work in horrible and ironic ways, she went on to become known for her progressive activism. She founded a certain cause oriented mostly documentary film festival in the early 2000s annually visited by celebrities who want to up their profile on this issue (not LGBT or feminist, but people associated with it would be shocked by her past). It's funny too because he actually went to high school with one of the _____________ (acting family siblings), and was thinking of confiding in the brother about some of his experiences in the business. At that time, the show was still on, and few people outside of it knew of his new interest in religion. So, my friend was pretty shocked when talking to him at a school party, and he started going off about Satan and being born again, and everything. It was like his sister all over again. So, anyhow, I got in to see him in the hospital by pretending to be his sister. I was even able to smuggle in a point and shoot and take a picture so it wouldn't be forgotten. He looked so sad, bound to the bed, and groggy from whatever it was they were making him take. I'm actually a retired career Marine and I've seen some disturbing things, but this memory really left a mark on me. I've been keeping the negatives in a family safe deposit box since then, but a print of the picture is going to be made public in a documentary that I guess is going to be made alongside the movie. It's not all top secret or anything. I asked him. PS Apparently there's a longstanding rumor that the studio has security camera footage of him running off the set in an on or off site vault. My friend believes one or more of them kept it for sick reasons.

A Family Member Speaks: We need to go back in time about 18 months or so. You have an up and coming expert who has been getting tip after tip about a group of men who are involved in a child sex ring. Yes, the same ring that produces thousands and thousands of photos for sale on the dark web. Yes, the same people that took all the photos that Mark Salling had in his possession when he was arrested a day or two prior to 2016. There was a lot happening in 2016. It was a very big year. People on both sides of the aisle were throwing money everywhere to make problems disappear or appear. One of the things that happened when Salling got arrested, were the questions. Where does someone get 50,000 images of kids? Most of these 50,000 images and videos had not been seen in other arrests. These were not the ones you were scooping up off 4chan. Many of the 50,000 were recent. Very recent. One person, who along with her NGO, was asked by the FBI to see if they could help track down any of the victims or locations. This person started asking around. As they were asking around, they were also leaving detailed notes they were backing up every single day. Not just in one place either. They were leaving the USB drives everywhere. At one point, the investigation led to this B- list actress/entertainer who comes from an acting family. This actress had been with some men, including an actor who enjoys sleeping with men and women who bragged about the trove of kids they had access to for child porn. They named some names. Those names were not names known to the actress but she wanted to pass them along. So, she got in touch with the investigator who she had known for a long time and possibly could help with all of this. Within a month, the actress was dead. The actress was easy to kill. Her body was failing anyway. All she needed was a little push. Our investigator decided to go to the location where the people named by the actress were located. The investigator kept backing up information and even though was out of the country, sent it to various family members for them to back up on the USB drives the investigator had been using. Shortly after the investigator began seriously digging around and asking questions, she was killed. Fast forward a few months. This A list singer has been in touch with a woman who says that one of the last things the investigator wrote was related to the singer. This woman has no idea what half the stuff on the USB drive has to do with anything, but would the singer be interested. The woman is in the town where the investigator was living prior to her trip and death. Yes, the singer would be interested and is going to be in that town in a couple of weeks and they can get together. A few days before the singer arrives in town, he is killed.

A man, who by all accounts molested and raped hundreds of boys throughout his life and was eventually killed by his adopted teenage son who he had molested and raped for years. Our actor is foreign born and was killed just shy of his 70th birthday. Foreign born and a multiple Tony Award winner who was nominated multiple more times. One of his wins was for arguably one of the more famous musicals ever on Broadway. One of his nominations was for a musical that was great on Broadway and absolute crap when they made it into a movie. He was in both.

Arranged Couplings: This actress is someone all of you know. I can't give her usual identifier here because all of you would guess her in a second. I would venture to say almost everyone in the world knows who she is. Her position in life allows her a lot of freedom. She has many people working for her on a variety of different visas and passports. Many of those people have diplomatic passports even though they are not diplomats or really entitled to carry them. Instead, those who are holding them in her house are young female teens. Not super young, but 15-17 or so. There are about four of them and they come from a couple different countries.

Apparently this A-/B+ list mostly movie actress all of you know is getting bombarded by calls from several women who say that the A+ list actor ex of the actress owes them money for sexual services and promises.

This celebrity used to be A+ list and not for the right reasons. She is probably a B lister now, although if someone reminded you of her you would all remember her. Anyway, she really needs to do a better job of pretending her boyfriend is her boyfriend. I have written about how she is one of a few women in her position who charge a lot of money for sex. It is a very big fetish thing. He is basically her pimp/bodyguard. The reason he needs to do better is he must have a half dozen profiles on gay hookup sites. Casey Anthony/Patrick McKenna
Imagine being plucked from obscurity to be on a reality show. Suddenly, you need an entertainment attorney to handle your contracts. Back when this all first started, many members of ensemble casts would find out about an attorney from another cast member and that is why so many of them have the same attorney. This is a really bad idea, but they didnt seem to know that at the time. The only time you want the same attorney as someone else on the show is if you are bargaining as a group. A husband and wife for example. Yet many members of ensemble casts across franchises are still using the same attorney. The smart ones are not. Two rivals (Linda and Kate) have been sharing the same attorney for many years and are very competitive with each other when it comes to salaries. Linda has always assumed she was the highest paid. When she found out how much Kate was making, she threw a fit. The back and forth contract fights between these two has been going on for years. Both fought for a Most Favored Nation clause for years. Linda finally got it on the most recent season along with the highest pay PER EPISODE ever paid for this particular show (not the franchise). An MFN is a clause that means that no one else can make more than the MFN. Her MFN is a PER EPISODE deal. So she makes the most per episode of any other housewife on her show. If anyone else on her show gets a raise per episode above hers, they have to match it for Linda. She was very happy. Until she was not included on every episode. When Kate found out she was FURIOUS. So when Kate made her first appearance on the show for the season, she was very salty with Linda because it was the first time she had seen her since she heard the news. Her rude comments seemed on the surface to be random barbs from long ago, but her real issue with Linda was her MFN clause. You see, initially Kate and Linda were both offered part-time contracts for the season. The networks goal was to pit them against each other and make them duke it out for the one full-time slot on the following season. However, someone was fired and Linda got the full-time role back for the current season. Currently, Kate is slotted to replace someone who is very likely to be fired after this season. At least that is the current plan. Still, in the end, a third person, Karmen is making the most money overall if you count her other projects on the network that include multiple checks. Karmen is on every episode and that is most likely part of her contract. She does not use the same attorney as Linda and Kate do. Karmen also has a deal for first look talent for other pitches, specials and spin-offs that includes executive producer status. Meanwhile, Lindas rival Kate is making more than Linda in overall income because she has spinoff and gets production rights from that show which comes with another small check. The filming schedule of that show is being rearranged to allow for Kate to be available when the next season begins filming. Oh did I mention Kate hired another attorney to send cease and desist letters to Linda and a part-timer for slanderous comments? Because that happened. I believe another website got one as well. So of the three, Linda probably makes the least overall. She definitely does if you consider the network income of other members of Karmen and Kates households. And I dont think Linda realizes this. Can you identify Linda, Kate and Karmen?

Back in the day, this actress was in some of my favorite movies. Now, she actually is being recognized for her talents and has been picking up Emmy nominations/wins right and left. She put in jail an ex back when they split. The thing is, he begged her to not tell everything in her complaint and she agreed. There was a lot more than a beating or two. He constantly abused her and demeaned her and assaulted her. She stuck with it for far too long and wishes now she would have said it all back then because of the way he treated subsequent girlfriends. He bought their silence after the fact but if she had gone public they might not have had to go through what they suffered through. She says he would cheat and then come see her and tell her how good the other woman was in bed. This actor is probably A-/B+ list. That face you know, but never know his name. He has had his own show. She says he used to go visit the sets of rap videos and use his star power from a movie he starred in that had some black star power to talk to some of the background women. He would find a woman and pay her to have sex and yell racist things at her the whole time they were having sex. He would then come and tell our actress what he did and be so proud of it and make her feel bad for not being there for him like she should be.

The actress I consider to the best to ever be a primetime soap actress recently told me a story. She said her very first role many decades ago almost made her quit. It wasn't even really a role. It was more of a stand in thing for the female lead. A body double if you will. Well, it turns out the then 16 year old caught the eye of the then A+ list mostly movie actor who was starring in the lead role. He is still a permanent A lister and all of you know him. He cornered the actress multiple times and kissed her and groped her and a day where she had to wear a dress for a scene tried to do more. Our actress didn't work again for three years.

Also there and about a decade or more younger I think was this A list mostly movie actor who was still a teen or close to it. Anyway, they both struck out and missed with this entire group of women from Playboy. Who did the Playboy women want to be with? This goofy looking country singer who was a 30 year old overnight success and is still goofy looking but has lost all his hair too. He is so good when he gets a chance at acting roles.

Money Talks: I saw that another A list actress thought she could sneak into this country and no one would notice. No, it is not Dubai or anywhere in the Middle East. It is honestly, right smack in the middle of nowhere and I'm guessing 99% of you, and I am right there with you, have never been to this country. I don't want you to think this is just about actresses either, but they go there for a different purpose. The actors who go there are few and far between, but male athletes get invited all the time. The men also don't seem to be as concerned with getting busted going, but they should be. One of the few actors I know who was invited was A+ list back in the day. Foreign born. He is still front and center on your almost television screens. He was invited a few years back and he was offered the chance to hunt a prisoner. Straight out of Running Man kind of thing. The actor didn't know if the offer was serious. He thought the offer must have been a joke and then while the offer was still in the air he was shown highlight videos of the hunt. Don't go to jail in this country. I think people already knew that, but this kind of takes it over the edge. The country gets its money from oil and acting as a middleman for drugs. They also are a hot bed of terrorism recruiting using some of their best athletes as messengers for the cause. Many of the actresses from the US who have gone, are supposedly these huge champions of human rights and immediately forget that when they see that seven or eight figure payment wired into their bank. There are not actresses solely from the US, but I'm not sure how much you care about some random A list actress from China or Korea. This foreign born A list mostly movie actress who is an Academy Award winner/nominee got paid $2M to have sex with the leader of the country. That seems like a lot, but this A list singer/actress got paid $10M. Granted, she had two nights with a different leader each night, but still, that is a lot of money. Our favorite former almost A- list mostly movie actress turned escort has spent a lot of time in country, but never with the leader. She is given as a reward to some of the athletes if they do well in a competition. She barely even gets five figures any longer. One of my favorite stories from this whole thing is that this foreign born female A+ list athlete who also models and much prefers women to men had a change of heart when she got into bed with the leader of the country. He said fine, but a week later a drug sample came back showing she was dirty. The scientists who had been helping her were told not to by the leader of a different country as payback for her actions. In the same sport, there was another A list female athlete who was invited back for a second time but she had a change of heart before flying out to the country. She kept the money they sent and they threatened to kill her child and also have her fail a drug test. Apparently that has now been settled. There was this then and current A+ list mostly movie actor who flew in to see some MMA fights. He left after a night because the leader kept trying to find a woman the closeted actor would be interested in and it was getting to the point where the actor was going to have to be with one of the women, and it is just an impossible thing for the actor so he bailed. I remember one time this at the time A list mostly movie actress went and she got really low six figures and she got busted doing it and the reason she was so upset was not so much getting busted, but because this permanent A list mostly movie actress who all of you know was also there and wasn't busted and hadn't done a movie in awhile and still got about $3M to be there.

When it comes to television programming, most networks schedule their best shows from Sunday night to Thursday night. Sunday nights are big because everyone is back home from their weekend activities and preparing for and dreading the upcoming work week. On Friday nights, most of the 18-49 year old age group coveted by advertisers goes out on the town either on dates or searching for a hookup. Friday night advertising is cheap and the networks dont make much. Thats why you will see lots of ads for made for TV products. That is why Friday night is called The Death Slot. Its where networks send shows that are not pulling good enough ratings to draw the more expensive ads. Those shows on the four major network stations get cancelled. The same thing often happens on cable networks. This is why when one network sent two series to Friday nights we all thought they were done. One show failed to get a million viewers after the first episode and ratings continue to drop. The spin-off shows are difficult to find because it never makes the top 25 list yet it keeps on getting renewed. However, the network is pleased with the ratings for both shows because you cant really compare Friday night ratings to other weekday nights where shows can enjoy the lead-in of more popular shows. So, the spin-off show has not only been renewed, the production schedule has been bumped up to begin at the end of this month. That is so the "star" of the show will be available to film the parent show next season. While I cant say with 100% accuracy that the star will be full-time on the parent show, the network is clearly arranging things to make that a possibility should they decide to go that route. The other show is not only being renewed, but they are getting a bigger budget to allow for more exciting trips and perhaps a raise in pay for the participants. Even more odd, development has begun on an additional franchise of the show in a west coast city. So if you enjoy your Friday night shows on this network, things are looking even better for you. What is the spin-off? What is the other show? And more importantly, when I give you these super easy blinds, its not just about figuring out the answer. Its about the news that the blind is giving you! What do you think about this news?

Look, we all know that none of the ensemble casts knew each other from Adam when the first season started shooting. However, relationships form when people work together. Especially when they work together year after year on a show that gives us at least a small window into their lives. Just like any other workplace, sometimes romantic relationships develop. More commonly friendships develop and occasionally people get together in between filming seasons. Its kind of like teaching. I had strong cliques at some schools I worked at and we would often go out every Friday after work. But when summer came, we rarely talked unless there was some major gossip going on and then the next fall, wed pick up where we left off. Its a lot like that with filming reality shows. After months of being tied down, people want to get the hell out of dodge and take vacations and hang out with their real friends. And then there are the drama queens. Many shows have that one person who starts screaming about how they are not sure they can endure another season with their cast mates. There are people who get fired and go on social media ragers against their on camera enemies for weeks or months after they have been let go. Then there is that one show. For a while there, a season or two ago, this show looked like it didnt have the ratings to return. At that time one female cast member single-handedly started a social media storm that sent rating through the roof just before the reunion. Websites everywhere were talking about the drama. Weve basically become immune to it at this point. That drama queen that saved the show has apparently given up her role as villain for the upcoming season and we will supposedly see a more mature and sophisticated woman when the show premieres. However, this is one of the show with male drama queens. Drama kings? This one is outraged that his newly hired fair maiden to play the role of his love interest is being maligned on social media. Heres the thing, back when I got the exclusive on Kenya Moores elopement, I was reporting other things that got a bit overshadowed. One of those things was this young lady. So this is not news. This information was being discussed from the inception of the relationship when I was sent exclusive photos. So it is very interesting to me why this male reality show participant is screaming from the mountain tops about it now, other than to drive up the ratings for the next season. The male reality show participant is doing more to advance the accusations than the party he claims to be so outraged about. Literally, no one would have known about the "bully" if he, and to some extent the young lady whose virtue is being questioned, would have just ignored it. Instead, he keeps giving ammunition anyone he can coerce into attacking this alleged "bully." At the same time he is accusing multiple cast members of befriending the "bully" and denouncing them publicly saying they were never friends. Thus the reason I covered the whole "friends" thing in the first paragraph. The male reality show participant is well aware of the nature of his own relationship. All the histrionics are for ratings. Which is why it is basically being ignored by most of us. Who is the male reality show participant? Who is the young damsel in distress? And most importantly, whats up with the name of this blind item? Perhaps there are other clues on this site if you can find them.

Male reality show participant: Thomas Ravenel
Drama queen: Kathryn Dennis
Damsel in distress: Ashley Jacobs

Top LITE-SKINNED NBA Player . . . Caught CHEATING On His Wife . . . With A Latina INSTA-THOT!! MediaTakeOut.com just got word that one of the NBAs hottest players is caught up in CHEATING DRAMA. The baller, who has the reputation of being a GOOD FAMILY MAN is about to get EXPOSED by a Mexican INSTA-THOTTIE who claims he was cheating on his wife with her. The THOTTIE approached several media news networks trying to sell her story along with PICS of her and the BALLER apparently on vacation together. When the news drops . . . Its gonna be BIG. We dont know why these high profile players think that they wont ever get caught. There are thotties out here seeking out opportunities like these for the sole purpose of outing them and making a name for themselves or just to get paid. Kobe Bryant suffered a huge scandal back in 2003 when he was charged with sexual assault of a 19-year-old hotel worker. Though he denied assaulting the teen, he did admit to having relations with her and was forced to publicly apologize to his wife. His accuser later refused to testify against him, and the case was dropped and settled for an undisclosed amount out of court. Lebron James was also caught cheating just months after marrying his longtime girlfriend after he was outed by an NBC producer who publicly announced via her social media that he had asked for a womans number in front of her, and the rumors of his extramarital activities continue to swirl. The ballplayer in question should really have known better. We just hope his error doesnt cost him his family and any of his endorsement deals! Stephen Curry ("Golden State Warriors")
WITHERSPOON ABUSE 02/06
Reese Witherspoon opened up to Oprah Winfrey about leaving an abusive relationship in her past. The actress, 41, said that making the decision to leave the relationship was the most important one she made to fulfill her destiny, after being prompted by Winfrey during a Super Soul Sunday talk. Witherspoon told Winfrey the abuse was "psychological, verbal"and there was a moment that made her decide to leave. "A line got drawn in the sand and it got crossed, and my brain just switched and I knew it was going to be very difficult but I just couldnt go any further," she said. Witherspoon continued, "But it was profound, and I was young. Really young. I couldnt ever be the person I am today I was a different person, too. It changed who I was on a cellular level, the fact that I stood up for myself." The actress, who was also joined by their Wrinkle in Time costar Mindy Kaling for the chat, said that making that decision is what allowed her to become more confident and sure of herself. "Leaving those situations [isnt] easy because its wrought with self-doubt, particularly if someone damages your self-esteem," Witherspoon said. "People say to me that knew me then, Youre a completely different person. I didnt have self-esteem, you know? And Im a different person now. Its part of why I can stand up and say, Yes, Im ambitious because someone tried to take that from me before." A Wrinkle in Time opens March 9. Mark Wahlberg
MCGOWN MOLESTED AT 15 02/06
Rose McGowan revealed details about an alleged molestation that happened to her at the age of 15 at the hands of a 'very famous director' while promoting her new memoir Brave and docuseries Citizen Rose. The actress and activist gave details about the alleged incident during a live interview with journalist Ronan Farrow at the 92Y in New York City last night - something she had initially mentioned to Farrow when he spoke to her for his New Yorker pieces. While she wouldn't name the "prominent" director, she did say he has "won Oscars" and "worked for my rapist [Weinstein]." "This man picked me up when I was 15 years old," McGowan detailed. "He took me home after he met me and he showed me a soft porn movie he had made for Showtime, under a different name. And then he had sex with me." After the alleged sexual abuse, she explained she was left in Silver Lake "standing on a street corner." It's something she didn't realise until recently. "In my mind, playing it back, I had been attracted to him, so I always filed it away as a sexual experience," she explained. Then she deferred to Farrow saying, "I dont have a normal trajectory, I dont know if you do either." Farrow replied, "I do not." Farrow helped McGowan come to the conclusion that her experience with this director wasn't right. "It was not until two weeks after your story broke our story, our worlds story that I was in bed and I started saying, Oh my god. I think thats molestation,'" she explained. In an off the record conversation with the son of Woody Allen, McGowan did reveal the director's name, however Farrow will let McGowan reveal his name when she's comfortable. While McGowan describes her encounter with the director as "molestation," it could likely be considered rape because of her age and the circumstances. McGowan accused Harvey Weinstein of raping her in 1997. Quentin Tarantino

He was probably an A list celebrity at his peak though because of his almost daily (well weekday) appearances on multiple television shows. One of those shows was basically a drunken mob of celebrities who would spend all day getting progressively more drunk while in front of the cameras playing a very easy game which required very little actual thought. A book could be written about everything behind the scenes. I am just focusing on one person right now. He would run into some parent with a tween boy at a grocery store and strike up a conversation and the whole point was to find out what school the boy went to. He then would start talking about getting the boy's class invited to the show for a field trip. The school would invariably say yes and then with the one teacher and a couple of parents star struck and also drinking, the actor would find some boy he found attractive and take him back to his dressing room where he might give him some booze or a pill and then molest the boy or have the boy touch him. This happened dozens of times and the show knew it was happening but didn't want to do anything about one of the main attractions of the show. Charles Nelson Reilly ("Match Game")

Mr. Hedge: This off-Broadway magic show just announced another extension to it's successful theatrical run. The show originally launched about a year ago, at a theater named for, and controlled by, the mogul you all know about. The show is produced by a beloved gay A-list mostly television actor /former child star, who dabbles in magic. Since the show's creation, a certain recently revealed serial child molester's company has been listed in the credits, also as having produced the show. The company was included in the press release announcing its extended theatrical run. Hours later, that company was mysteriously scrubbed from the very same news article. It's obvious the show's owners are trying to cover up the likely continued involvement of the serial child molester's company in the show. After all, his company is heavily involved with the design of the sets, sound, and visuals. When this serial child molester was first revealed a couple months ago, his company allegedly claimed he was "taking a leave of absence". The amount of time was unspecified. The total lack of specifics indicates the whole thing was a very likely thinly-veiled PR sham. The serial child molester's company was hoping they could continue to function with clients and on projects, despite being controlled by this despicable human being. It is also strange that this otherwise reputable and beloved A-list mostly television actor/former child star is doing business with these vile and disgusting people.

Account Number 37911133339: Over the weekend, the head of this company, who had never been seen in person at this particular location showed up in the middle of the night. He had called ahead and the highest ranking person still left at this business was told to be there for the meeting. He instructed that no one else be there. The urgency was dictated because of multiple deaths that happened a short time before involving two very key employees of this company. Those two employees were in charge of the account number mentioned in the title. That account number was established several years ago when the new owner bought out the original owner. It was an internal billing account, but the bills were never paid. They were never supposed to be paid. It was simply to keep track of a special group of clientele who are friends of the owner. The problem was that after the death of the two employees, one of the clientele showed up at the business with two very young women he said were his nieces and said he had a reservation. He used the name associated with that account. The problem is these clientele were always processed by the two dead employees. They were not always there in person but would arrange that all the formalities would be taken care of beforehand so whatever clientele were there could get on with their activities quickly. When this man showed up with his nieces who really looked nothing like each other or the man and were really young to be wearing what they were wearing, calls were made. Did anyone know about the reservation and then someone looked up the history of the name associated with the account and sent a group e-mail asking about the reservation and included the account number in the e-mail. The man and his nieces were not given a room because none of them had or were willing to produce identification or a method of payment. The man explained that no payment was ever required because it was handled through Mr. Weishaupt. No one at the company had ever heard of Mr. Weishaupt and another group e-mail was sent inquiring about Mr. Weishaupt. Only a few hours later, the call was made by the man who came in the middle of the night. Was it Mr. Weishaupt? I don't know. The person who told me all of this only caught a glimpse of the man as he left the next morning trailed by that highest ranking employee available at the company. The person who spoke to me is adamant that the previous owner didn't have a special account number. The employees had been trying to recall anyone they remembered who had used the account number or name when they checked in. One person several people agreed on because he had been there multiple times using the name was this A+ list mostly movie actor who lives most of the year overseas. He also likes to direct. He is also an Academy Award winner. The staff just assumed he liked his privacy and it was a fake name. It wasn't until now, they realized he was using the same name as the man with his nieces. Whenever the A+ lister came, he always came without his wife and would only stay a few hours. No one saw anyone who came with him, but it seemed like given the circumstances he was meeting someone who would come to see him. This A+ list mostly movie actress who is an Academy Award winner and is known all over the world used the name too. Someone remembered she stayed a week when she was in hiding and some of her employees would come by and have no idea they were supposed to use that name to see her or contact her. The staff said the name was used a lot, but mostly by men who had a woman or women with them. There was one man they remembered because he stuck out. He was an older white man and he would often come with young black men and also would only stay an hour or two. I think I know who that person is and have written about him before, but no one remembered exactly what he looked like and he wasn't using his real name so it is tough. There are rumors that the man behind it all has big time professional sports interests. One thing is certain. Any trace of that account number is gone from every system the staff can get into.

Mr. Hedge - The Lawsuit That Kept The Secrets Hidden: You all remember a couple years ago, when that former child actor filed lawsuits against the now-disgraced A-list director, and 3 of his friends. He was part of that film that you all know about, which was released for free online a few months ago. Those lawsuits ended with a public apology to at least 2 of the accused, and allegedly paying a low 7 figure settlement to them. There was never even a fight before the lawsuits were dismissed. One day they were there with a huge public splash, and seemingly the next, they were gone. What you dont know was the real plan behind this, and how well it all actually worked for the parties who orchestrated the whole thing. The former child actor was not lying. He believed what he told the public. His accusations look much more credible these days, given what we now know about the disgraced A-list director, and his recently exposed serial child molesting friend. Obviously, it would be very difficult to prove in court exactly who raped him 15 years earlier, given that he was being force-fed drugs and alcohol to the point of being barely conscious, if at all. The former child actor had previously taken his case to others, who turned the case down for those very reasons. Despite the case being very thin, the publicity surrounding the announcement was huge. The motivation for such a public announcement was the expectation of more recent underage sex victims, with more solid evidence of their rapes by these people - to notice the huge amount of press, and get legal representation. This succeeded beyond anyone's wildest dreams. At least 4 victims came forward. The public is not aware of this yet, but there is incontrovertible proof. The private settlements are rumored to have totaled over $10 million dollars combined. The A-list director and his legal team were quite happy, because it resulted in these even more disturbing accusations being settled privately, and never seeing the light of day. That lawsuit which you all heard about just a couple months ago, against the same A-list director, accusing him of underage rape - its the same game being played again. The one alleged to have taken place on a boat in the Pacific Northwest. Just a thin, old lawsuit with no witnesses, designed as public bait - in hopes of luring in more recent big money victims, with much more proof. This time, there was no press conference, just leaked news of the lawsuit instead. So, thankfully, this victim will not have to be publicly embarrassed if the case doesn't move forward. The former child actor was offered a mere $100k by the A-list director to keep his mouth shut forever, but turned it down. There is also incontrovertible proof of this.

Broadway: Hi there, folks. You won't know who I am, and that's okay. You're better off that way. But to introduce myself very briefly: I am a producer, mainly in the world of theater, but hoping to move increasingly into film and television. In this era of #MeToo, and Enty's exposure of general unpleasantness in the industry, I thought I'd share some tales from the dark side of Broadway, because if anyone thought we were immune, you don't know jack. This story, I'm privy to because I was a negotiator on this project at a later stage. In the words of Bette Davis, "Fasten your seatbelts; it's going to be a bumpy night." It all starts with two artists. In one corner, we have a fellow I will call H, a respectable family man and widower trying to support two kids with profound health conditions and his elderly mom. He has been a noted wunderkind in certain circles since the mid-to-late Seventies - you name a hat, he's probably worn it, which has been both a blessing and a curse for him for different reasons at different times. He is known to the entertainment industry at large as a workhorse at the level of a project machine and has enjoyed an illustrious professional career as a venerable veteran auteur (director, writer, producer, mainly for the stage). He has a reputation for being a "bad boy" which has landed him in hot water (at one point, his college tried to spuriously expel him in spite of sterling, exceptional academic history), but though I'm biased because I happen to like the guy, I'd argue that this comes from being persistent and argumentative, and if you were working for three decades and had amounted to Spielberg without the money, you'd be entitled to cause a little stir. He has never committed a crime of any kind ever in his life, and in this town, that's saying a lot. The only vice I've witnessed is a little pot and booze now and then. In the other, a guy I'll call K. K is a composer, lyricist, occasional performer, and director of an annual awards ceremony that only anyone on Broadway cares about, and not as any sort of "ace in the hole." The biggest musical he ever had, to which he made endless unnecessary revisions after freezing out his collaborator, was nominated for six Tony Awards in a very lean season a few decades back and won none of them; it could have been more successful if he had any idea how to properly exploit his work (the only serious coin it's ever made is in the high school/community market, and that coin is a very thin dime). K is also a temperamental psychopath with more demons than you can shake a stick at, among them a sex life that consists solely of barebacking with barely legal male escorts. Before they go out with him, they should demand a copy of his blood test; God only knows how many have been given an unwelcome surprise gift that no one would be delighted to receive or be stuck with for a lifetime. (At 20 looking 16, I once had K size me up like a Second Avenue hooker at a reading. It felt as though a snake had crawled over my foot.) During the late Eighties/early Nineties, H (unaware of K's proclivities at the time) and K teamed up to collaborate on an original show, and the combination of two rare talents turned out a terrific musical, a killer futuristic adaptation of a lesser-known Shakespeare play. (Of the two, H was arguably the mover-shaker/conceiver /problem-solver who brought the show into being. There's one more driven member in every team.) It was staged in workshop with a performer who went on to become a Tony winner/nominee (you guess which), and it got serious attention: to this day half the League wants it, and many argue seriously that it's a shoe-in for Best Musical if it ever hits Broadway. There's just one problem: K wanted (still wants) absolute control of the project, never mind that he'd be incompetent to exercise this control if he got it and that he's not entitled to it by any industry standard, and to that end he has consistently gotten in the way of getting everybody (including himself) paid. H has never requested such control from K, and is still by no means trying to divorce him from the project, if only because it's easier to work with a finished score than solicit a new one. At one point, H learned of K's proclivities, and combined with their increasingly poor business relationship, he understandably slowed his roll. Things broke down to a point that the only solution was to draw up an ironclad contract that both of them must sign off on all decisions related to the show. This didn't sit well with K, who then conveniently forgot he was part of a team. He suddenly started making deals on his own, going around town, with bravado, raising development money without H's consent, and using it to make demo recordings with Broadway stars, breaking union rules by paying his friends and not paying others, and sending out these recordings without H's permission. Anybody who's serious about this field knows that this behavior would get both of them disgraced and blacklisted, so naturally H rang K's phone off the hook, imploring him to cease and desist, that he would disgrace them, and finally pointing out that their contract wouldn't allow him to get away with this. Unfortunately, when K did pick up the phone, it wasn't to call H back; the call he placed was to the NYPD, lodging accusations of harassment (although when questioned, he said that he didn't feel physically threatened) and playing them a number of H's phone messages, which were mostly begging him to stop. This might have gone nowhere, but there were extenuating circumstances. At that time, about a year prior, in the same general area, a fight had broken out between two other known writers, about the same status in the industry as H and K, and one threatened the other; the threatened party went to the police, who did nothing, and one writer ended up killing the other, with the cops catching flack for not taking it seriously. So, when K called them and played them H's messages, the boys in blue weren't about to be caught slouching on the job again. H got locked up on misdemeanor charges, along with his aging mom who refused to leave his side. After 12 hours in lock-up with the seediest NY has to offer (terrifying, to say the least), they were let go, and the charges were ultimately thrown out, with Equity ordering K to destroy his illegal demos. (This wasn't even the last time it happened. By the time I came to the project, K had tried and failed to name his negotiator, a regional theater director who thought you could solve the world rights of a major property in a fifteen-minute conversation; H's side had wiped the floor with him. K appealed to a mutual friend of his and H's, the wife of a major former star of coming-of-age films, for help. She hooked him up with a so-so NY lawyer who tried to strap us with a contract outlining the same deal K wanted since day 1. When H wrote a single email to her husband hoping to explain his side of the situation, and possibly hook both of them - and their daughter - to play parts in the show, the star's beastly side came out, and he threatened in writing to falsely report H to the cops for harassment. Guess that's a general M.O. for K and his crew.) Needless to say, over 20 years since its inception, the project remains stalled because of K. What would you do?

This foreign born A-/B+ list actor is halfway to an EGOT. I think if he focused on television he could probably knock out the third pretty easily. Most of the time he shows himself on television though it is to do Shakespeare. Although our actor is foreign born, his #MeToo journey began here in the States when he was molested by one of his drama instructors. That same man is still running a theatre company and still likes to have productions featuring young men as often as possible. That instructor was released when the school found out about his behavior. He has also been released from other places for the same behavior, but yet, he still has a theatre company and says everything is a misunderstanding. Does that also include what went on in that Asian country known for attracting molesters.

The thing is though, the NFL player is still her boyfriend and on that side of the ocean too with her, so I am not sure how this is all going to play out. Sam Heughan/Mackenzie Mauzy (Jimmy Graham)

The Dancing Boy - The Long Shadow Of Abuse: What I didn't say in my previous email was that the near miss was preceded by years by an event that would shadow me for the rest of my childhood. I was young at the time, still going to a school where you have the same teacher all day. The man - a trusted friend of the family - was a network exec. (My father also worked in the business.) You wouldn't know his name, as with the exception of certain CEOs most of these men are fairly anonymous cogs who by virtue of hard work or connections have risen to high levels. They're not without influence though, or access. Fittingly, this man was once the Santa for that annual entertainment-linked LA holiday parade. It happened at a party hosted by the man and his wife. The adults were all out by the pool, wasted and joking, and the kids were indoors playing video games, and watching "Jaws" on the big screen tv. When the man came to get me - I was with the boys at the game console - I thought I had done something wrong. But he assured me it would be okay and held my hand as we went upstairs. I was taken into the master bedroom where I was told that you were supposed to shower after swimming and had I done that? I shook my head no. The man, who reeked of liquor, and also smelled like skunk (something I didn't understand at the time), took off my swim trunks, and his. After showing me a nudist magazine from the 70s (or so I surmised, from the hairstyles), he pulled me into the shower with him. And if there's anything we learned from that Division I school scandal a few years back, it's that there's probably no good reason for a grown man to be showering with a young boy. (Earlier, at one of these parties, I had fallen into the pool and nearly drowned - it was before I could swim. All the adults were either drunk or high, or otherwise not paying attention to the kids in their midst. I basically had to save myself.) Gifts and opportunities followed, mostly access (back stage passes to network shows and events, that kind of thing), and swag. The man, along I guess with other network people, also had a stake in a production company that produced medical/educational films and videos. My first role? The "drowning boy" in a film about pool safety. Of course, in it, the trouble is not negligent adults, but that I'm "mischievous" and manage to get into the pool area despite being told not to. Over multiple takes, I had to fall into the pool, only to be pulled out by my "dad," and "resuscitated." (One thing you learn, apart from that adults may have sinister intentions, is that wet clothes weigh a lot. A few more takes and I may have actually been the drowning boy.) Next, naturally, I played "abused boy," and had to share my story of being inappropriately touched by my swim coach (I'm an aspiring youth competitive swimmer in this one) to the hospital shrink after acting out at school and at home. These were followed by medical/educational "stardom." I got to play "tonsillectomy boy" and later "appendectomy boy." As it happened, my own medical emergency coincided with the filming of the former, and the shot of me being put under - the look of fear in my eyes - was really a shot of me being put under. (Apparently this was not considered unethical back in the day.) So, I don't know, a nod (or at least on the list) maybe for best performance in a medical/educational film? As with many other kids to whom stuff happened, there did come to be acting out. I was telling the truth in the last email that at the time of the events described I had never used drugs, and had maybe only had a baby sip or two of my dad's wine. I did get help, eventually, too, as I suggested, but it was not right away. It started with pot, of course, provided by a now industry union man and habitual social media virtue signaler (who also happens to be a serial philanderer and harasser of women, and who not to be outdone once exposed himself to me - I mention all this not because he's known but sometimes these are the kind of people who turn previously clean but vulnerable kids onto drugs). Acid and other hallucinogens followed, provided first by a classmate and son of a certain left coast dairy/ice cream fortune heiress. You should've seen the high school graduation party at the family pad in that beach town - straight out of a Bret Easton Ellis novel (yes Virginia they really do have a police department in Malibu), although he went to another school of the same type (we used to play them at sports) in the same topographical feature. The son is now a trustee of the school. (Analogously, I attended the same type of college as BEE but in a different state. He mentions the college unflatteringly in one of his novels - the friend goes there. A movie was made of it not starring the super hero actor.) Next came coke, speed, benzos, and more unusually heroin (I never liked the throwing up). It took an overdose of some very sketchy SF meth, and an intervention by the attending ER doc and male nurse (this all took place in the Bay Area) before I got clean. The worst part was having to tell my father - something you'll hear a lot from addicts (a friend of mine said the same thing when he was about to do his first stint in rehab). To this day, I suffer from chronic insomnia resulting from the drug abuse, and o/d. (If there was anything I was good at in childhood, it was sleep.) What was the other way I acted out? What is that line of work that 3/4 of teens (my shrink told me this) doing it were sexually abused as children? Yes, that, and on the San Francisco street that is or at least was associated with the sex-specific version of it. (I had run off to SF after a romance, my first, ended badly, and some of these issues were coming up; I was nineteen.) I have haunting memories of it all, from the "nice" middle aged man in the sweater vest - a doppelganger for my abuser - who tried to kidnap me, to the boy - no older than 14 and clearly out of his mind on meth - playing chicken with oncoming cars on a bmx bike. I was probably fortunate not to end up HIV+ (or with some other STI), in jail, or dead. So, all that. And: the itinerant backers of the feature project I mentioned, including a French born billionaire/head of a vc firm, want a proof of concept short for it. The flick, whose working title is "the Man from Mars," is slated to be shot later this year, and is a variation of some of the feature material. It's about a kid actor hired to do a tv docudrama for one of those pulpy but still feel good networks about boy hustlers in San Francisco. (In this sense, it's kind of a "reboot" of those 70s tv movies of the week, with the transitioning dad or girl turned streetwalker.) His character is picked up by a well meaning undercover cop who gives him a choice: the hospital/rehab or jail. The boy gets the help he needs, and the cop becomes his foster father. Only, late into shooting, the actor finds out about an additional scene - one not to be included in the airing. The cop, in this secret version, becomes a predator, and he becomes his kept boy. Fearing his imminent assault, the boy flees the set, only to find himself hitchhiking home on a street where young male hitchhikers aren't really doing that. His part becomes his life.

Burglary: You know that actor who recently was killed but made to look like a suicide? His place was recently broken into and that of a girlfriend. Yes, apparently someone was willing to be his girlfriend. She called police, but no one made the connection. No one even bothered to call the police for the break in at his old place because it had already been cleaned out by relatives. His girlfriend said nothing had been taken, but two of the screws for air vents had not been replaced. They were on the floor in the kitchen even though the screws went to air vents in her bedroom and living room. It looks like someone had installed recording equipment in both of the vents and had to retrieve them. It is assumed the same thing was done at his old place, but no one is sure that I spoke to. What is very interesting is that this A+ list television producer of shows all of you know did the same thing once to a former lover.

They used to be best friends who hung out all the time together. C and B had a falling out, but still would talk. Recently though, things became worse between them and C decided to go after B in a way she knew would make B vulnerable. She would call and text B from a variety of different phone numbers. Each of these messages was designed to make B think she was having hallucinations. It was always her reaction in these types of stressful situations. She had confided in C about them years ago. C knew from past experiences that B would be searching for answers online instead of talking to a therapist. C exploited that and hired a person who micro targeted B on Facebook. They were designed that probably only B would see the ads. They were designed to really push her over the edge. It was one thing to get random texts and calls, but this messaging was right there in front of her. B would have been in a state of panic almost 24 hours a day and would not have been sleeping at all. Paranoia would be setting in and then C pushed it over the edge. C is not a stable person. She has always had a big ego, but now she has become a megalomaniac. She craves attention and adoration. She demands it. This would show everyone who has the ultimate power.

Now I Believe: This A- list tween actress is just now really a tween. She has been acting for many years already and says she never believed the stories she heard about kids being molested on set. It had never happened to her. In the past year though, she said that since she has been working so long, her parents don't always stay on set any longer. Plus, she is getting older. Apparently that combination led to her being cornered in places alone with her bosses. They are writing her sexier scenes and making her perform the scenes in front of them. She says that not a day goes by where she is not touched or groped by her bosses and feels like it is a matter of time before things get worse.

There is an A- / B+ list actress you all know. She had a very public meltdown a short time ago. Lets call her G. G has always been out for only herself. G is known for ruthlessly and nefariously pursuing her ambitions. G began her career as a mostly-movie actress, with a series of small, low-paying roles. About a decade and a half ago, G scored her first good, steady work. G joined a popular, long-running almost network TV series as a main character, at about the halfway point in the series. As that TV series was winding down, G was looking for her next gig. She ran into an A list director at a film festival. Lets call him D. D was promoting a big film he directed, based on a novel. Lets call that film OT. OT had an ensemble cast, loaded with stars. OT had a special A+ guest director as well, with whom D has worked on many projects. Lets call him RD. RD has been in the news recently, and not in a good way. Ds wife produced OT, as well as many of his other films. At the time of this film festival, Ds wife of about a decade and a half was heavily pregnant with their 5th child, so she stayed home. G ended up on Ds lap during one of the parties at this film festival, while rubbing an ice cube all over her body. G and D left the party together. This all happened in front of many people. The tabloids quickly got word of G and D. Ds marriage ended pretty quickly. G got a starring role in the next film D directed. It was the 1st part of a double feature. Lets call this film T1. RD produced T1. G and D's relationship was not serious during the filming of T1 - more of a dalliance. After filming for T1 wrapped, the 2nd half of the double-feature was scheduled to film several months later. Lets call this film T2. T2 was set to be a much bigger film than T1. RD directed T2. D produced T2. D sent G to casting couch RD, for a role in T2. RD was also at that film festival, when D and G first got together. D even gave G instructions on what to wear and what to do for RD. G flew out to meet RD for the occasion. G got a supporting role in T2. G and D got more serious after T2 wrapped. About a year later, they got engaged. For a few years, G and D both tried to gloss over the fact that their relationship began when D was married to his then-pregnant wife. They were able to obtain some favorable press, claiming that their relationship began during the filming of T1, which was after D had already separated from his wife. D and G broke off their engagement after 2 years. That was probably a good idea. Recently, G decided to very publicly tell the truth about when her relationship began with D. She just leaves out the part about D being married to someone else at the time. In return, D called out G on some of her lies. G recently claimed that D sold T1 to that disgraced A list producer (whom G accused of raping her) out of pure spite. D pointed out that prior to shooting T1, the disgraced A list producers company had 1st look rights, and its parent company had already agreed to finance the film. G also recently claimed that D played mind games with her during the filming of T1. D and G got engaged about a year later, right after T2 wrapped - so D clearly got over whatever problems she is now claiming happened with the whole thing. D, G, and RD all stay quiet about the most important thing which happened on the set of T1. D assaulted a stunt man on camera. The footage was destroyed. D and RD got the stunt man to agree not to tell anyone about it. The entire double-feature was a financial disappointment at the box-office. At one time, D also pursued sisters related to his ex-wife. Ds now ex-wife does still produce some of his most recent films.

This is from an unpublished interview in 1990. The magazine, which is a monthly magazine, is known by all of you and fact checked the story.

One of the editors also said that at some point, the woman gave consent to the sex. Umm, she was barely a teenager. There was no consent. I will use R for reporter and S for subject. The father they are discussing was a B list mostly television actor. The ___________ in the interview is a permanent A+/A list mostly movie actor who was a long time family friend of the B lister. The subject killed herself about a year after this interview.
R - When did it first begin?
S - I was about 12. My dad came in my room sometime during the night. He was drunk and told me it was time for me to grow up. He then crawled into my bed and slid down my underwear and raped me.
R - Was that the only time?
S - From that point forward, whenever he would get drunk I knew he would be coming after me. I started spending the night away from home whenever I thought he might go out and start drinking. I started stealing sleeping pills from a stash of them I found in the medicine cabinet just to not be awake during the rapes. I then started taking them during the day just to numb the pain. I have been addicted to some kind of drug ever since.
R - You mentioned earlier that your dad would sometimes bring others with him. Would you clarify that?
S - Sometimes, but not often, my dad would bring over _________________. He was a big movie star even back then. My dad would bring me to one of the guest bedrooms and tell me to make his friend happy and that if I didn't, he would beat me. This started after I had started taking pills and most of the time I was a zombie, but knew there was no fighting it so would just do what he or any of the other friends dad brought over, wanted to do to me.
R - How many times did ____________ come over?
S - At least five or six times. One time my dad brought me to a film set to watch ___________ make ____________. I thought it was really fun to be there until my dad told me to go to ______________' trailer and wait for him. I knew what that meant. I hated going to any movie sets after that. My whole life has been one f**ked up mess because of what my dad did to me. Do you think I like doing what I do for a living? I hate it. Every single time I have sex the faces of these men show up everywhere. I hate my life and I hate living.

"CLOSETED AMERICAN FILM ACTOR" 02/12
First of all, I would just like to say that being closeted is the hardest part of being in the spotlight, especially when one is famous for their 'looks'. I am an American film actor and I have been pretty much inside of the fragile wardrobe for some time now... I wasn't 'gay' or 'into men' persay throughout my whole career or life for that matter. Only did I realize a few years ago that my attraction towards men grew and grew over a period of time and from friendly grazes did it turn into something more with malice. I've only ever had relations of the romantic sort with men possibly once or twice in my whole life (and its been just as exhilarating with women) and was one of those regretful 'one night only' incidents I could never ever speak of again. Away from that, I am of American descent and an actor and more than anything, I love my job with a passion, so much so that even up until now, I still don't have the heart to come out despite being one of the few 'straight' activists for the community. The public as far as I'm aware of has made zero rumors of my sexuality, seeing as how I've been caught dating quite a lot of women in the span of only a decade. This (I'm not even sure at this point if I should be thankful that the media doesn't take notice of this) dating 'spree' of mine if you must is really genuine and I do feel attraction to women; quite a lot. With that being said, I never went publicly about my supposed 'bisexuality'. And yes, I do believe I am bisexual (I've only come to realize it around the mid-2000's if I recall correctly) and am completely proud of it. But being proud does not equate committing what is arguably 'career suicide'. I never felt like I needed role models in terms of sexuality since I felt extremely comfortable in my own skin and felt zero self-hate with this feeling growing up (my family has been extremely supportive and having siblings who were gay helped), its just that I can't tell the world about this and risk my life's work be ruined. I have starred in a lot of action movies that have been recently on trend with what teenagers love to watch and that further amplifies my guilt. Being a closeted man with a fanbase comprised of women of all ages (possibly due to the fact that I am also a leading man in many romantic comedy's) and teenagers of both sexes, I feel like it is a responsibility to be an inspiration for these kids to be free and be who they want to be especially since I play a character in my most well-known movies that portrays everything an American man should be. But in Hollywood, you just can't pretend like everything will be fine and dandy the moment you come out and start to promote the community to the society. I'd risk losing half of my fanbase and the movies that I'd be offered to if I came out. My manager who is also one of my best buds has always supported me in my personal decisions but has constantly warned me that if I do attempt to come out, sadly, I should do it when my career starts to dwindle and right now my career is at its peak and according to my team, right now (coming out) my 'profile' would be extremely boosted but I would most probably lose about 10+ film offers with massive paychecks and big names to boot. Right now, I am dating a charming and hilarious woman, and I am very much in love with her (and yes, she knows and is fully accepting of it). However, I still can't come to terms with the fact that I can't tell the world of my true identity and its been hurting my relationship with her over the past few months. I'd consider myself someone you would never suspect to have an attraction to men since I grew up in a very sports-oriented family. That being said I do love theater and grew up into it with my sisters and brother, which was a place that really opened my mind even as a child. In my almost two decades-long career I have yet to come across a rumor about my sexuality and for some time it fueled my desire to support the community since it only came off as me being 'open-minded and extremely likable'. The only people who know are my team, my bestfriends and my family. I just truly hope that one of these days, I still get to do what I love with the same amount of effort and support from my fans despite not being able to tell them the truth of who I am. I love all of you and please please despite not being honest with all of you, please love yourself and be who you are. Chris Evans
Beyoncé taught us in Obsessed that you do not touch her child, and according to Tiffany Haddish, she wants you to keep your hands off her man as well. In a NSFW clip for TV One's Uncensored, the comedian with an affinity for Groupon and a way with words spilled the Lemonade on how she and the great and powerful Bey met. It seems at the after party following a Jay-Z concert, Queen B was quick to claim her territory. "I was talking to Jay-Z for a little bit, and there was another actress that was there who was also talking to Jay-Z," Haddish said, withholding the actress' name. "(She) touched Jay-Zs chest, and Beyoncé came walking up like, '(Expletive).' But, she didnt say that." Haddish explained that Beyoncé's vibe conveyed her intentions. "Her demeanor, her body from the way she walked up on them was like, 'Get your hand off my mans chest,'" the Girls Trip actress said. "Then, she started talking to that actress and some other stuff happened, but I ain't gonna say nothin yet, but it's gonna be in these streets." Sanaa Lathan

This married former reality star who should have gone to jail and not just Hollywood jail had to be bailed out again recently by the pastor at his church and his family when a 15 year old at the church said she had been having sex with him on a regular basis. Considering she is 15, it is rape rather than sex, but she was worried about her parents finding out so spoke to the pastor about it. I don't think her parents know yet. The only reason anyone knows anything is she told someone at school so it is only a matter of time before it gets back to her parents. My guess is they will get a big check and disown their daughter, because in their minds (guessing by which church they belong to) that it is her fault. Josh Duggar

Direct This: I think it is possible that I may have found a director who is even worse than the Oscar winning A+ list director that has been in this space frequently or even Woody Allen. The director of which I am speaking is an Oscar winner, but not for what you might think. It is shocking actually he does not have more Oscar wins. I do hope this is in some small part due to his raping and abusing women throughout his career. Although the number of actresses he abused is in the dozens, I am going to focus on just a few of his more notorious crimes. He raped three tweens during a casting process and gave the role to the tween he said was the one who was the best in bed. He later ordered her to sleep with the much much older foreign born co-star on the movie who would go on to have an A list career. That co-star injured her severely and production had to be stopped for a week to allow her to recover. The director kept her around for a couple of years under the guise of getting her more roles, but the real reason was he could send her out to find other tweens and early teens to bring back to his place where he would get them drunk or slip them drugs and then rape them. He often filmed these rapes and would film the actress with the other tween and teen females. In the movie for which he is most famous he had friends of one of his children come to the set with the child. All of the friends were probably no older than 7 or 8. He molested a dozen of them at least during the filming of the movie and filmed many of them. When he died there were hundreds of hours of footage which was some of the most extreme versions of child porn anywhere.

Something Rotten: The widow and a family member think that they have the undying support of their lackeys. The lackeys are given orders and then run with them like deranged robots.

Warmer Waters - Mr. Hedge: This former child actor was A-list at his peak. The introduction to this story is well-known to many. His more recent dealings have not yet been exposed. Our former child actor was still in his late teens when he quit acting. He was already friends with that A-list director. The A-list director introduced our former child actor to a serial child molester. The newfound friends became partners in a shady business, which served as a thinly-veiled front for a pedophile ring. He fled the country with the his 2 partners, and had a very close brush with the law in a foreign country. Our child actor was arrested, but not charged - for all the child porn the police found in the residence which was shared by the 3 partners. For the past few years, our former child actor has been spending a great deal of time in an economically distressed Caribbean destination. The legal age of consent in that destination happens to be 2 years younger than his native California. Recently, this destination was devastated by a natural disaster. Very recently, our former child actor has bought himself some favorable press. He claims to bring new wealth and charity to this island from his recent business dealings. This favorable press makes no mention of his shady past dealings. He is trying to remake his public image. This will not succeed. For one thing, our former child actor has secretly been in touch with many of the same bad people from his past for many years, via a secret social media group. He has also been involved in many shady dealings in his recent business ventures. He was close to a major fraud scheme a couple years ago, which caused a company to collapse, as well as a mysterious suicide.

The Eternal Order Of Elvis Presley Pallbearers - A Himmmm Blind: We four Himmmms (and our occasional cronies) have all decided to take turns with sharing one special story from each of us. One person will write them all up for you, but each person takes a crack at their best memory (that they legally can share anyway). Since I'm the "scribe" of the class, I go first. It was easy to choose, as one great night shines above others for me. A legendary Hollywood night for me, and the others who lived through it. Yes, it's totally real and most of those involved are still alive. I normally apologize for the length of the blinds, but in this case it may be pointless. If you think this blind is long you should've experienced that night. After nearly 22 years (!), I can still recall every word spoken, every smell, sound, bodily fluid and hairstyle. I blame PTSD, but probably it is because it turned out to be a night that cemented lifelong friendships, business partnerships, and even love. It's a very personal story.
I'm sorry if it is a departure from the normal blinds of scandal, evil abusers, or cheating/drugs/whatever. Although it does have celebs in it, this is not some major mystery to CSI-out. It's just about sharing a story that is very special and very crazy. Real life usually is. I'm sure you may have survived crazier nights than this, but probably not with such an amazing group of people. Some who were legends then, and others who have become legends since. So, for you my friends here at Crazy Days and Nights I share my memory of my crazy night.
Let's set our DeLorean time machine back to the mid-90s. This was a time when the internet was young, social media and reality television didn't exist, AOL, Netscape, and Microsoft were kings, and a cell phone was for talking. YouTube, iPods, and Google didn't even exist; and Yahoo! and Miramax did. Boys still wanted to play football for Penn State; and college MBA students wanted to work at Bear Stearns. Neither Viagra nor the Dept. of Homeland Security had been rolled out; the Twin Towers stood tall; and MTV showed music videos.
In the sweet days of late 1996, there was a bar/pub place on Sunset then called The Cat and Fiddle Pub. It was a English-style pub with a large outdoor patio area and they had the best alcoholic Ale and warm cider that would knock you flat-drunk-da-fark-out. This bar was a Mecca for many British ex-pats in Hollywood, and especially with musicians. It was no shock to sit down and see Robert Plant at the next table when he was in town. The "young" hipsters in those days like Drew Barrymore, Winona Ryder, Johnny Depp, etc. were often there too. Best thing was that it wasn't on the radar of tourists, paparazzi, or leeches. It was a familial haunt for celebs dating back to The Who and Rolling Stones but open enough to just be a place to meet and hang out. It has since moved across town, but at the time it was on Sunset Blvd. here in Hollywood. My friends and I usually would go swing-dancing at the Derby, or drinking at the Dresden room. But sometimes you just need to relax and take it easy.
I had received a call from a crazy friend of mine, a legendary British rocker (singer from legendary band) who wanted to go have some fun that night. We will call him LC. I'd been spending lots of time working with friends in movies and music, even trying to prod LC back into new life making music again. Meanwhile, he'd occasionally make himself home at my house. I was living in the artsy BoHo-chic area of L.A. called Silver Lake; in a big Old Hollywood Mediterranean-style mansion built in the 1920's for some dead silent screen star up a hill. We'd installed a top-rate recording studio and film screening room inside the old house, so it attracted lots of musical friends from the neighborhood. Down the street lived Flea, Jerry Cantrell, Kirsten Dunst, and many others. Best of all it had a clear view of the Griffith Park Observatory and the best view in Hollywood.
This particular night I had been down at Paramount Studios helping a friend with a project, and watching crews refill the parking with the huge blue sky backdrop to shoot a movie about a boat in the ocean. I needed to unwind. But hanging out with LC was never relaxing, because he was sort of ADHD you could say. He said he'd talked to another pal who wanted to have a drink that night. This other guy was more legendary than LC, but possibly less known in this period unless you were a folkie, hipster, or alcoholic. This older guy (Rock and Roll Hall of Famer/Oscar nominee/winner) we will call RW. I was all for it, so we planned to meet at the Pub around dark. (Our rule was first there saves the table/seats, and last to leave pays the tab).
Whenever LC says he wants to go out, you cancelled your plans for the next day and put your attorney on speed dial after pre-authorizing bail money. His idea of pub crawls could take you to another country if not careful. Seriously, we wound up in Tijuana once. Ever see a "Tijuana Donkey Show"? Uggh. Just don't. Anyway, LC was also the world's worst driver, and had a habit of losing his cars. Yes, "losing" his cars. Forgetting where he parked them, and waiting til a towing company called for him to get it out of impound. In L.A. that's crazier than anything. But that's LC, in his lovable hyper-lost puppy dog way. So he said he'd drive over to the Pub to meet us, and I knew it would be a crazy night. I just never knew I'd end this night by falling in love.
Another friend of mine had stopped by my house and I invited him to join us for drinks too. This guy (A list director with more than a handful of Oscar nominations/wins) was a young filmmaker who had directed some small/indie things but not yet had his big break. We'll call him DK. At this time he was working hard on putting together a movie that would become his first big hit, and become a legendary film that kicked off his incredible career. I'd helped him edit a short film previously, and we'd have these nights where we'd spend hours and hours creating the story for this one project that he obsessed over. A very dedicated filmmaker. At the time we were going out drinking he couldn't even get into a club or elite restaurant by himself. He was kind of a shy "Hollywood Kid" like I was, growing up inside the entertainment biz, so we had much in common.
DK and I met up and arrived at Cat and Fiddle and found RW already there, sitting by himself and drinking. No LC yet. I wasn't that close to RW but he knew of my family and knew any friend of LC was cool. So RW was very gracious, and welcoming and had already secured our table. I introduced DK, who was awestruck by RW. We made small talk until a woman walked outside to our patio table. This lady was middle-aged and breathlessly gorgeous. The kind of beauty that takes your breath. It didn't take but a moment for me to recognize her and WOW! I was stunned. It was (back in the day all around A- list actress/singer/celebrity). We will call her BN, and in the years since her peak of pop-music singing fame she had gotten even hotter. Plus, she still had that amazing voice. RW introduced us, and said she got bored with her date and was going to join us for drinks my pleasure.
As we all four got to know each other better, I realized not only was I in the midst of two true legends but two of the most legendary voices (whether talking or singing) to ever exist! The patio there at the pub was starting to get more crowded, and a few people were giving that "Hey, isn't that ?" look over at our table. Both DK and I noticed a table next to ours full of lovely young women who were looking over and whispering to themselves. We pretended not to care, but one short-haired brunette young lady was just too pretty not to notice. It took a gruff laugh from RW to break my stare.
When RW spoke, you pretty much gave him your undivided attention. Not just because his voice and presence commanded it, but because everything he said seemed like some powerful nugget of truth from a wise man's lips. Him asking for a cigarette held the same gravity as reading the Ten Commandments. It truly did seem like most of what he said ended up in lyrics for a song. However, other things were just the most bizarre non-sequiturs relating to absolutely nothing that you could ever imagine. Timing was not exactly his strong suit either. When BN asked if we all thought maybe there was "a cure for cancer somewhere but was being held back for money reasons?" We all sort of pondered it a moment.
He just nodded his head, and replied: "Never get caught in bed with a dead woman or a live boy". Apparently thinking his contribution to the conversation made ANY sense whatsoever. DK was trying to suppress his laughter and frequently spewed cider on the patio. Otherwise I tried to keep a stone face with RW. We all did, except for BN. It was not in her nature to ever patronize, coddle, or go with a flow. As we'd all stare at each other quizzically, saying "mmm-hmmm", not wanting to offend our Jaegermeister Yoda, BN said: "That makes no fu#k%ng sense at ALL. What the f*#k does that have to do with cancer?" And RW, being RW just shrugged. "I don't know, and I didn't say it did". BN rolled her eyes and went to the bar for more drinks. Lots more drinks for us all. A whole lot.
Still no sign of LC after we'd been there a good 2 hours. I told RW that he's probably been outside for two hours trying to park his car. RW nodded, but BN called B.S. She swore that even a kid could figure out how to drive and park in L.A., since (she claimed) the streets were lined out in a grid pattern to help bimbo actresses get from audition to audition. Cute. She wound up betting with me. If LC said he'd been struggling to park? She buys the next round. Otherwise? My treat.
Finally, not long after, our lost sheep comes slinking through the growing crowd. Completely undetected by the throngs of hipsters, young executives, and kids. In fact, if you'd put one of his hits on the sound system I doubt half the crowd could sing along. To say he was at somewhat of a loose end was mild, and I often got calls from his terrific wife asking if I knew his location. He even called this period, his "wilderness years". From the looks of his hair and beard he meant it as a fashion description.
LC rolls in, looking like he was hiding from a bookie, ducking under his jacket collar. I stood to give him a welcome, and he plopped right down in my chair. (No that's okay, go ahead and sit there, I wanted a new chair anyway). LC didn't do these things to be rude or egotistical it was just him. Like the thought never crossed his mind that I may want to sit back down, in my chair. After saying "hey" all around, he explained his anxiety thus: "Do you have ANY fu#k%ng idea how hard it is to park the curbs in this fu#k%ng town? I been out there like an hour like trying to park a lorry in a Mini's stall". We all burst out laughing. I won the bet, and BN grudgingly bought the next round.
When I got up to search for a chair, the only one I saw was sort of near a table that held the pretty brunette I'd been staring at. Along with her pals, an extra female, and what looked like a grunge refugee from Seattle. All their attention was turned away, so I figured I'd get that pesky chair away from their area for them. Didn't want anyone to trip. As I was pushing the chair in between DK and LC (who was yammering on about the dammed parallel parking), BN says: "Hey buddy you're busted." Huh? She said my "girlfriend" the stunning brunette I'd been eye-stalking was trying to figure who stole her chair as all her pals were pointing fingers. Right. At. Me. Oh shit. "Dude, she's sooo hot", said DK. I decided to be honorable, and return the chair.
Before I could even pull it from our table, she was there in front of me. Those warm hazel-brown eyes shooting daggers, steam exhaling from her ears. Horns starting to sprout from her head. "Excuse me, f#%khead that's my chair. Which you know, because you've been staring at me for half-hour. I know it's America but even American guys must have some modicum of decency here."
I froze, tried to stutter out an apology. BN snorted loudly. LC says: "Holy hell man, she totally owned you." RW (being himself), says: "Yep, and that's the problem with technology these days." (which, of course, made no sense whatsoever). I was offering my apologies and excuses and for the first time, the beautiful brunette noticed my assorted lunatic friends. She looked to my side and said: "Are you wait you're HO-LEE-S-H-I--Z! Are you?". Recognizing LC, she gasped, covered her mouth and stared straight at him. I said "here's the chair" and she took her other hand (without ever taking her eyes off LC), and gently pushed my arm downwards toward the chair. I sat. She sat on my leg. All without looking away from LC, or even blinking.
"Oh heavens, I'm so sorry. Where are my manners. I'm (foreign born A- list mostly movie actress)" who we will call QT.
"I'm (LC)", he said.
"Yes, I know. I'm a huge fan. I'm so sorry, I didn't mean to be rude to your friend, of course you can have my chair for your friend". The always on-point RW then says, "Hey doll, you may not notice but you're actually sitting ON his friend." BN says: "Yeah but I don't think he's complaining."
At which she apologized profusely, and continued sitting on me. From my leg, to my lap.
LC asked her about her accent, and she explained her home in England, and that in fact a relative of hers (A- list mostly television actor in his own country) knew LC and his former band mates. Stunned, LC couldn't get over the coincidence. We all went around the table, introducing ourselves. Our new guest QT remembered BN from the 80s, had no clue who or what RW was, and ignored both me and the quietly shy DK at first. But the longer we sat together (literally) the more we talked. When I spoke French to BN about QT's attractiveness, and BN who is American but speaks French replied, it was then that I learned QT was totally fluent in French. She lived in Paris recently, and was shocked at my comment to BN. This wasn't my best night for impressing a beautiful young lady.
Turns out that QT and I did get along rather well. She told me her life story, about her parents (famous acting couple in her home country), and that she was also an actress. She'd recently done a couple of prestigious-type movies in her home country, and had been trying to break in to Hollywood. Just this month she'd wrapped both a film back home, and another costume movie for television back there. She was in town now staying with pals, and had auditions for a few films one she hoped would break her through in America. I told her about me, and my nutty friends and nuttier family. We had much in common, and she'd attended a very impressive college recently and studied abroad.
Best of all, it felt like we'd known each forever. I was glad she was sitting and drinking with us. Actually, sitting ON me. In fact, she'd decided to hang out with us when her pals all headed to a club down the Strip. She said her gal pal fixed her up with some preppie douchebag type guy who looks like a date rapist. She'd rather hang with us. After some discussion, BN suggested that we should also head down there. They were having some 80's night thing there, and she also had pals going. She also knew the owners, so we could go hang in the VIP area if we wanted. Sounded great. I paid the huge bar tab, and LC said he'd meet us there. I figured with him and cars? We'd see him next week if ever. RW volunteered to drive. He said that as the oldest alcoholic, he probably had a higher tolerance, thus able to drive his car safer than the rest of us. Why not? It was only the other end of the Sunset Strip anyway.
We all ambled out to the sidewalk, and there sat the ugliest pile of crap clunker car I'd ever seen. Ev-er. This was RW's car. He called it the "death wagon", and it certainly smelled like it. It was like some junkyard mechanic on LSD welded four clunkers together. Made the Blues Bros. car look like a Bugatti. But not wanting to insult a legend, we gave in (and sort of side-eyed each other). Climbing into RW'S car- this battleship-sized 1960s-era behemoth (which got about 4 mpg and had the original tires still on it), we piled in like condemned prisoners. Myself, QT and DK in back and BN and Commodore RW up front driving. Even the radio seemed sad to be in this car, as it belched out classic songs on FM to barely hide the noise of the skipping motor. DK looked over at me, grinning like a kid, and said "this is so cool!". QT just looked at me in disbelief: "Sure, riding in the Manson Family Truckster". (Catching the National Lampoon's Vacation joke cemented my love for this lady). The radio played Men At Work's "Down Under", and we debated the Aussie term "chunder" as it applies to puking, and how being a "chunder-cat" sounds cooler than "yelling for a Buick". Down the Strip we cruised.
Alas the club came into sight. This neon-draped venue with an outside Jumbotron had formerly been the legendary Gazzarri's rock club. Former home of many 60's-era rock groups and dancers, it was where Van Halen and many hair metal bands called home. Now, it was The BILLBOARD LIVE and was a hot, hip, new place to be and was packed with lots of club kids and young celebs of the moment. Crowds snaked down the sidewalk, and paparazzi were out on the curbs looking for celebs. RW parked the Tank of Doom behind the block, facing down the cross street. He said "Never know when you gotta make a break for it". Uhhh, okay, thanks for the insight Confucius.
Thankfully, BN had called ahead from the Pub, and a manager met us and escorted us through the crowd past the velvet rope. Lots of confused young clubbers on the concrete. We could go downstairs to the secret VIP den if we wanted, but I suggested hanging in there a while. Have a few drinks, and enjoy the fun. That place was packed. Some of QT's friends from earlier were just waiting to get in, and had lobbed some confused shouts at her as we blew by them. Now they were inside too. QT pointed and showed me this one big douchebag guy who had been bugging her. It was the date she was supposed to have been on at that moment. He looked like a Fraternity snob from Animal House and a born date-rapist. Popped Izod collar and all, with a sport coat (even if it was a retro 80s night this was still the 90s!). I told QT it was fine, that he'd never get near her much less spike her drink and roofie her.
The first person I saw inside was an old friend of mine, another up-and-coming Director (A list director great at action movies). Back East our families were close, and I'd known him forever. He'd not yet hit the big time but would soon. We chatted and I introduced him to QT, and he confirmed my instincts as a quality choice for a date. He returned to his group and we made our way through the throbbing club full of music, lights, and sweaty drunk people. The manager led us to a reserved table close to the bar, and everyone was having fun. At the table next to us was an odd group of foreign-looking people who seemed to be sitting very close together and taking turns leaning over their table. Then whipping their heads backwards. Maybe they had sinus problems? Yeah, that's the ticket.
BN introduced us to several other 80's era stars, and the whole vibe of the place was great. After a drink, QT and I went to dance. I discovered a secret sweet spot high on the nape of her neck, and she really enjoyed the massage I was giving her. Her skin tasted like sweet peaches. It was all good until Mr. Roofie and one of QT's friends came over to us, playing 20 questions. QT said she was fine, having fun, and would see her pal later that night. The Roofie douchebag guy didn't seem to like that, and being drunk, started talking trash. To both of us. QT and I just ignored him, and made our way back to the table.
Waiting there was our lost friend LC, who miraculously made it and even made it inside and found us! He'd ordered several hyper drinks for us all, including flaming drinks. We drink this FLAMING alcoholic soft drink with a Whiskey shot dropped into it. Ugggh. They make one and it is great. But then LC orders them for everyone. QT drinks hers and turns green. You could see the puke bubble up her throat, but she held it down. LC starts drinking his second one and while on fire from nowhere Mr. Roofie Douchebag drunkenly barrels into us, knocking QT into me, and LC's flaming drink goes EVERYWHERE.
I leap up and SAIL over the table onto Mr. Roofie, punching his adam's apple and then his nose, repeatedly. The other flaming drinks spill and spread. I hardly notice his coat is literally flaming on FIRE in the middle of a BRAWL. Three of Mr. Roofie's no-neck pals have jumped in, pulling me off him, as LC throws punches at them. QT jumps up and VOMITS LOUD AND HARD all over me and the now-bloody/gasping Douchebag. I turn back to QT, and she's sick but she's okay. LC is beating some big guy's fist to death with his face. DK jumps in to help him. People fighting, pushing, and Security coming. As this typhoon of chaos swirls around, I catch a glimpse of RW. He's sitting there, calm as a meditating Buddhist, sipping his drink and looking at the action.The fire spread from Mr. Roofie's coat, down his pants, as someone pushes that hyper-pituitary Goliath towards RW. So RW politely extinguishes the blaze. By pouring an entire pitcher of beer on him. Instead of thanking him, the guy swings at RW which is caught in mid-air by the back of LC's head. BN and DK both are trying to help QT. Another body flies past me, sailing onto another table and POOF! a cloud of white powder blasts up into the air from that table. Apparently it wasn't powdered sugar for their sinus problems, because the group at THAT table got super pissed and started gang-punching the drunk who'd blasted their cocaine everywhere.
I feel someone smacking my back it's BN because I'd also caught on fire. I swear I saw BN throw a bare-knuckle punch straight into a guy's face. The entire fight blows up into a ruckus, which blows up into a bar-brawl, which blows up into a total riot inside a packed nightclub on the Sunset Strip after midnight. Security comes barreling in with fire extinguishers. People trying to run away outside, as others push their way sneaking inside. People yelling, fighting, throwing drinks and THUMPING 1980's Duran Duran reverberating. Total third-world epic chaos. Dogs and cats living together in sin, I mean total mayhem.
RW points to an emergency exit, and makes a quick departure amidst the carnage. The music is still BLARING. We follow RW and shuffle out of the emergency side-door fire exit which triggers fire alarms. RW hoofs it down the sidewalk to grab the car. QT is on the sidewalk, puking and retching all over my shoes and everything else. In between heaves and coughs, she's yelling "HOLD MY HAIR! I'm PUKING IN MY BLOODY HAIR". I do. BN comes busting out the door saying "we gotta get the hell out, now. Cops are coming and those frat boys are blaming us for this." She pauses only long enough to say, "What's wrong with you? Can't you see she's sick? Hold her HAIR!", and rolls her eyes at me.
Like a deranged Batman scene, RW comes roaring down the side-street, and halts the clunker right at us. "GET IN KIDS!". Just as we're throwing open doors and piling in, DK and LC explode out of the side door, laughing, falling, and yelling drunk. Both covered in white stuff (either from extinguishers or the cocaine explosion next to us). Somehow, LC had ripped off Mr. Roofie's popped collar. He actually had the guy's shirt collar in his hand, laughing. "GET IN" we all yell. They do, and with a belch of smoke from the exhaust, RW'S death wagon car skips, lurches, and knocks its way out into the street. Hitting the horn and sailing through traffic nearly sideways until we're clear.
I look back and see Fire Trucks and Police cars all racing to the front of the Billboard Live club. Holy hell. People running across Sunset like a bomb went off. Then I look over at QT - this beautiful brunette British goddess, with her short, mussed hair, streaked makeup, alcohol, and various bodily fluids around her mouth (and on me). She focuses her heavy leaden eyes at me and says: "I'm soooo sorry. You're such a gentleman and I chundered on my gentleman. Can I have some gum? I got a bit of yak breath."
Always prepared for any crisis, (like a deranged den mother from hell) BN opens her bag, whips out a travel bottle of mouthwash. "Drink up sweetie" she says. I see DK with his head now in BN's enticing lap, grinning, and LC is riding shotgun with our brave pilot RW roaring us down Sunset through traffic. He yanked the wheel hard, shooting us down a cross street, and then down another street to avoid the Sunset crush. All of us escaping the melee at the club (which actually made the news the next day about a group of unidentified ravers starting a fire and brawl. It honestly was on KTLA).
QT gave me the mouthwash, which I drank. Bad idea. This all-forsaken car had a very nasty smell inside. Like any good diplomat, LC belted out: "Tha hell IS that bloody smell man??". LC kept swearing it was sewage, but RW said it was probably from dead bodies. RW swore he only paid $100 for it, because a pal bought it from a funeral home. It wasn't a hearse but was used for "other" transport. BN and I looked at each other, eyes wide. DK, who was cramped in between us, asked RW if he'd ever checked the trunk?
"Nah man. Don't really dig what may be back there", he quipped. And kept on driving.
I asked, out of courtesy, "Do you care if I smoke in here?". LC said, "Care? Dear God man! PLEASE SMOKE! Smoke, fart, or do SOME-THING to get that fu#%in' rank stench outta here!".
QT and I lit our cigarettes, and I couldn't take my eyes off of her. Just staring. Maybe it was the alcohol, or the elation of the crazy night. But I couldn't stop staring, until I caught DK's gaze too. He shot me a smile and a nod. He knew it too. Saw the same thing in her. Probably thought the same thoughts too as in, this young lady is going to be a massive star one day. Not just her looks, or her smile. She had a glow. An aura. A charisma that I doubt even a movie camera would capture. She was transcendentally incandescent. Didn't matter how well she even acted, she had "presence". I'd spent my whole life growing up around glamorous old era movie stars, from Liz Taylor, Ava Gardner, to Natalie Wood. I'd known them all and even have a photo of me as a kid in the lap of Greta Garbo. I know what that presence is, and means. Even sloppy drunk. DK knew it too. If justice exists? She'll be an Ava Gardner, or a Liz Taylor. A throwback to glamorous actress of the old days. The world will notice her. If not? I'm in the wrong business.
Out of the front seat, came an very loud eruption of that unmistakable voice:
"We need us a name man!", said RW.
We all kind of looked around at each other, but had long since given up hope of making sense of anything he asked. "Like the Hell's Angels?", was DK'S reply.
"Nah man, nah. Like there was the Rat Pack, and the Hippies, and them Yuppies shit, we need US a name! You know like Jarmusch and those guys got that Lee Marvin club." He was referring to director Jim Jarmusch whose resemblance to the actor Lee Marvin spawned a group of pals called "Sons of Lee Marvin". Where Hollywood actors and musicians resembling the famed icon all get together and I don't know. Sit around and look alike maybe? But hey, the RW wants what the RW wants.
But he did have a point. We wanted something we could us to identify ourselves. A name with dignity, class, and honor to fully reflect the success and brilliance of our combined existences. (Yes, we were drunk). Then LC chimed in, "Hey? How about the Knights of the Diarrhea wagon??".
QT exploded with laughter, and mouthwash all over me. Better than her vomit. Like a shower of peppermint. Probably the best that car had smelled since it was new. DK said, "Classy name." RW, without considering the insult of his car, continued on. "How about something with Elvis? Because, you know, he was the King right? But he had to fight too."
Then DK suggested "Elvis' Pallbearers". LC brought it all home for us: "I know I got's it! Got's it here THE Eternal Order of Elvis' Presley Pallbearers." A long hush fell over the car. Only the whop-whop of the tires, low hum of the FM radio and one of QT's occasional hiccups echoed through the interior.
"Perfect! Man, that's PURRR-FUCT!!", said RW. Oddly enough, everyone agreed. And thusly, a true Hollywood legacy was born. We decided then to meet back every year, no matter what, to reunite and live out our adventures. Without flaming alcohol this time. RW asked about if we would have to be a dues-paying membership club, like the Friar's Club or something, or if we'd have uniforms or a secret handshake. We agreed not to, since we were all likely too drunk to remember a handshake. "Good", he said. "'Cause I've already paid my dues, man." Which may have been the most relevant, lucid, and meaningful thing he'd said all night long.
We finally made it back to our cars near the Cat & Fiddle on Sunset, but I was in no shape to drive. QT asked if I could run her back to her pal's place later maybe? Uh, sure. BN told RW he was obligated to take her for early breakfast. House of Pies, baby! So I asked RW to point the death wagon towards Silver Lake and please, drive us home.
Do you remember in the Hangover movies, the scene of the morning after? Or Sixteen Candles when Farmer Ted wakes up with the prom queen in the parking lot? All those scenes of half-drunk, fully wasted, exhausted, dirty survivors of a party war straggling onwards? Well, that is what we were at that moment. Not one of us untouched, or not reeking of some awful foul substance. We were all either burned, wet, bloody, dirty, and very tired. Even Queen BN didn't escape with her crown un-tilted and those sexy fishnets un-ripped. Yet we survived. There, in that car, hardly speaking a word. The chug-a-bang-thud of the death car and the feeble droning of the radio is all we heard. Minus ringing of the ears and QT's eternal hiccups. Cruising towards an epic walk of shame, slouching towards the curse of twilight waiting in our immediate future.
Just about that time I didn't think this bizarre night could get more bizarre, a true Twilight Zone moment occurred. Call it Synchronicity, coincidence, or the mighty hand of God playing around with us it was some very odd stuff. Just as we'd all settled inside the "death wagon" LC turned up the radio. Amazingly enough, the radio still worked, picking up that classic FM station. More amazingly, a song had just started playing. A song written by RW, which had become a huge hit for another singer (permanent A+ list foreign born singer). The song was in the first verse. BN said: "Whoa isn't that your song?". RW said, "Well, it used to be. Guess it's his though. He did it good and I made enough to buy this luxury automobile." (He wasn't joking he really did write it, and it was a huge hit for the singer. No clue how much he earned in royalties but I hope it was more than $100.).
Without any prompting, or planning, RW began singing. Talk about a private concert! Then BN joined in. Then LC pipes in too. It was only then that it dawned on me the true epic-ness of these three legendary singers and now all three singing this big song of RW's which, even drunk, was incredible! Even DK begins to come in on the next verse. QT looks at me, eyes WIDE OPEN at me like "oh God is this really happening?". I just grinned, nodded, and even she started to hum and sing it too. Then, when the epic chorus hit we ALL were singing it, loudly. VERY LOUDLY.
All chiming in, cruising down the eastern ends of Sunset Blvd., at 3am together. An earth-shattering, life-defining moment that shall live in my personal history eternally. (Or until my dementia hits. Either/or). With that final rousing chugging beat kicking in we did too. All of us yelling, singing, laughing and making bark at the moon noises. THIS is what the true Hollywood dream is all about. Vomit, clunker cars, and surviving flaming epic party fights! By the song's end, we were all laughing, coughing, and having a great time. All the burns, puke, fights, and everything else were forgotten. Well, mostly anyway.
We'd made it back down Sunset and over to Silver Lake. Not really sure if RW's tank-mobile would make it up the hill, and it dragged the ground going uphill. A cloud of smoke trailing us that could've put L.A. on a next-level smog alert all by itself. Heading up Micheltorena, passing the old houses, I directed our driver where to go. Coming to the driveway, he didn't want to go up to the house. We said our goodbye at the curb, and LC got out with us. BN tried to invite LC back with them to eat and to get their cars. He declined. She then said: "Yeah but do 'ya think maybe they wanna be alone? Huh?". LC just stared at us, and back at her. Like somebody just asked him to do long division or calculus. "Look at the size of that f*#kin' house man! You think they'd hear me? Besides it's like my home too."
He was right. He stayed there. A LOT. I wanted to claim him on my taxes by now. I came around to the driver's side window, and RW stuck out a hand. We didn't really say much, just a wink, nod, and a big scary grin. "Thanks old man it was a blast. Thanks for everything." He shook my hand, and said: "You bet. It was for me too. I think it was one for the books, Kiddo. Best time I've remembered in years. Via con Dios!" Coming from that legend, there's hardly a compliment to compare. And...he called me Kiddo!
I stepped away, as he rolled up the glass. No electric windows. Hahahaha. Love it. After hugs and goodbyes, and a pledge to reunite next year I led the way with QT and LC following up the drive. Up to the old Mediterranean-style house that was popular with movie folks in the 1920's, I led QT on a little tour around the outside and the pool. LC helped himself to my fridge, and was nice enough to play the answering machine. I still don't know why he did that all the time as if anyone assumed him to be there. Maybe he expected a psychic to know he was crashing there? But we all loved him, and our casa was his casa. Mostly, anyway. After many, many, many hints that it was getting late or early he agreed and asked if I was going to lock the door or if I wanted him to do it before going to sleep. Uhh, sure LC, you're always welcome. Anytime. He went down the hallway to one of the guest rooms, and retired for the night I think. "Elvis has left the building", he shouted loud enough for people at Graceland to hear.
I took QT on an extended tour of the old house, and she talked about her plans, dreams, and what she hoped the future held for her. She was now more sober than was I, and after a bird bath wash-up in the bathroom, was radiant. She told me she'd been dating another actor back home, but kinda on-again/off-again. I didn't mind that it was now off-again. I was less occupied with what the future held for her and more occupied with holding her in my future. When we arrived to the master bedroom, she wouldn't let me turn on the lights. I told her I had a CD she'd enjoy hearing, and flipped on the stereo and took her out to the balcony. Said she wanted to see the city glow.
A mix CD I'd played the day before came on, as Jane's Addiction "Three Days" began. The balcony doors wide open, and the linen shears over double French doors did little to conceal the gorgeous view across Los Angeles. Maybe only the Chateau Marmont has a better view. She was speechless. The Hollywood sign, Observatory, all of Hollywood all lit up with the haze of the night sky reflecting it back. She stood there on the balcony, and it was possibly the most beautiful view I'd ever seen. Not the city, or the lights but her. In the reflected glow of the city. "I can't get over this. This view. This night. Your friends you. This place, it's all so so so...perfect."
She turned, neither of us said a word. A long very long kiss.
The music played and she asked with a soft whisper, "What about your friends? What about Elvis?"
"Elvis is dead. He won't mind."
We resumed that kiss. The balcony doors stayed open.
Several hours later she arose from the bed, wrapping the thin gauzy sheet around her. She lit a cigarette, and appeared to almost float out to the balcony. Dragging the sheet beneath her. The song "Fade Into You" by dream-pop band Mazzy Star was playing. That song, with Hope Sandoval's breathy vocals it was perfect timing with what was in front of my eyes. A song and a vision that's forever seared in my mind. Unforgettable moments. Just perfect.
I sat propped up on the edge of the bed for the longest time just staring at her figure on the balcony, the linen barely shrouding her tan figure. The pink light of the sun was threatening to peek up over the opposite side of the house, just enough for a faint purple glow bouncing off the hazy sky. The lights still all bright below, all reflecting off her flawless face. She looked like she'd just walked out of a makeup trailer, even her messed short hair looked stylish. That warm California wind blew across her face, her hair, the linen shears, and the sheet all gently dancing in the breeze. Her back, neck, and shoulders all exposed to me as she held the sheet to her chest. Smoking, staring...totally blissed.
"I never want to leave", she said.
I walked behind her, wrapping my arms around her and joining her stare. "Then don't", I replied. She asked if I had thought about anything beyond this minute. I told her all that I knew was that I wanted to feel like this minute forever. She smiled, and agreed. But we both knew it would never be more than this. Reality. Commitments elsewhere. Plans, futures, and responsibilities. But then and there, everything in the world was perfect. If I'd died at that moment? Life would've been well spent. Especially after a night like that. I asked her if she wanted breakfast and I nuzzled into the nape of her neck. She was perfect. She still tasted like peaches.
She laughed and simply said three words: "No. Just lunch."
We didn't leave that bedroom or balcony for nearly six hours. Even then it was only for the shower. She cleansed my second-degree burns on my back. I made sure to gently wash all the alcohol off her body. Pore by flawless pore. It was a very long shower that probably caused the L.A. drought of 1996.
When we finally did leave the house it was around 1pm, and I promised to take QT to the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel for her first "Hollywood lunch". I knew the staff there well, and she'd never been. She reminded me my car was still at the Pub, or maybe towed. Damn I was turning into LC. We took my other car but before we got out of and down the driveway to the street, LC came roaring in. He parked at the end of the drive, half on the curb and half on the street. I rolled my window down and invited him to join us for lunch. He declined, saying he'd left after we'd gone upstairs and been out drinking with another pal (back in the day A+ list mostly movie actor who is probably A- list now) and other friends until sunrise but finally retrieved his own car. An epic hangover. I told him to make himself at home, and I'd return one of these days. He smiled, wished QT well telling her to look him up back in England. He said "You two crazy kids invite me to the wedding okay?", and with a laugh he stumbled up the driveway to the house.
As much as I wanted us to spend every moment together, I knew we couldn't. So after lunch, QT and I went our separate ways. We had one last kiss goodbye, fittingly just off Sunset Blvd., when I took her back to her friend's place. We each had obligations that were unbreakable, and we both felt a long, hard tug at our hearts as we parted. "One for the record books, Kiddo". She said to me, laughing in her impersonation of RW. "Always, kiddo", was my reply. She went back to her friends, to her auditions, and then returned back to England and her life there.
It was a few months after her return home that she called me out of the blue. I could tell she'd been crying, and she finally told me the news. Turns out something from our night together was going to bind us together forever. But a physically dangerous problem arose. It was not to be. I offered to fly over, or fly her here but she didn't want that. I respected her enough to not push anything. We talked for hours and hours, and I truly felt more love for her than ever before. But some things work out, and others don't. Time marches on, and we made our own private vows that night to each other and she bravely went on with her life, relations, and dreams. A strong woman whom I will forever love, admire, respect, and protect.
I went on with my life too, and about a year later had a "reunion" of sorts of the group of friends from that night. Our gang reunited at Cat & Fiddle Pub one night, and had another great night. Sadly, QT didn't make the return trip. She was still in England, still with her on-again really nice boyfriend. Her career was gaining full steam, and in a few years she'd be expecting her first child with her boyfriend. I was happy for them both. Although I missed her horribly, I knew we had our own lives. When we see one another in times since, we always smile and often share a hug. No matter the miles, years, or anything else between us I'll never forget that night, and the image of her on that balcony. Some things remain truly magical. She always calls me "kiddo" in a low, gruff voice and I call her the same.
The night of our reunion at the Pub would be the last time our group of friends all got together in one place. Time marched on from then until now, and people went different ways. Even the Cat & Fiddle Pub moved. Although still around, they were forced from home on Sunset and now are at a new place off Melrose down the corner from the Paramount lot. I still pop in on occasion for a warm cider, but things have changed. I sip my warm, non-alcoholic cider. Things have indeed changed. My buddy, friend, brother, and favorite loony named LC died not long after from a health problem he never knew he had. A hard funeral to get through, and I love his widow and family as if my own. It's not like he's dead, because I still expect to hear him staggering up the driveway any given morning asking if I'd seen his car.
Good old RW made the epic album of his career shortly after our adventures, and made it into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Lord knows, he deserves it. The eternal lovely Queen BN made it back to performing, re-igniting her band and her incredible singing (all while marrying an entertainment lawyer and having kids!). My upstart shy buddy DK really hit the big time. He soon made the defining big movie of his career, which shot him to the instant A+ list where he's been ever since as one of the greatest living directors (and that rare good guy in Hollywood). Happily married to a great woman and they've got a hundred kids.
Yes, my QT - the brunette goddess who stole my heart and body that night? She also got her big break in America and proved me, and DK, and LC, and everyone correct who predicted her success. She became a franchise star, hailed as one of the most beautiful women alive, and married a different guy in the biz although that one didn't work out exactly either. She's spread her wings doing art films and indies and is a true evergreen. A talented actress and a talented human being. A lady in every respect. Of course things change over the years, but if one day when our paths cross and we've had the right amount to drink, hear the right song, and live through a bar brawl? Who knows? Maybe she'll chunder upon me once again. One never knows down which path or aisle such things may lead.
I'm sharing all of this with you not only to share (with you my friends) the events of a crazy night. But also because that silly drunken promise we all made that fateful night to remain as a group...well, it may yet come true in a special way. The events of that night (plus a few others) may be made into a small little indie film in the near future. With all the participants from that night on board, except for one (R.I.P.). It won't be a summer blockbuster or a franchise mega-hit. There's no superheroes (except for RW's car), and probably won't make a blip in the awards. But it'll share with the world the crazed, chaotic, and eternal moments that bonded a group of friends together in a crazy night in Hollywood.
It may even be called: "The Eternal Order of Elvis Presley Pallbearers".

The Old Hollywood Con Has A New Name: It is said that history doesnt repeat, but it often rhymes. In over 100 years of Hollywood history, once every couple decades some person, or company, has been able to swindle enough cash from investors to even attempt this brazen scheme. Almost every major studio has attempted some form of this scheme, on a smaller scale, at one time or another in its history. The most recent example is back in the early 90's, when Sony paid through the nose for Columbia and TriStar Pictures. Sony lost billions of dollars in the following years. Each and every single time, the scheme has ended in miserable financial failure for the investors who were left holding the bag at the very end. Many decades ago, RKO drove itself into receivership, and Warner Brothers almost went bust. The scheme goes like this: Buy up as much talent in town, as quickly as possible, and itll all pay off later. Doesnt matter how much you have to pay. Trust us, the financials will work out very nicely in the future. Because we will simply chase everyone else out of the game. Just give us a lot of money, so we can make sure that everyone else will go bust - before we do. It will only take us a few short years to make that happen. Then, well be the only option in town. We will control everything. We will be able to squeeze the amount of money paid for talent back down, while charging our customers a ton of money. We will be the last man standing, rolling in dough. In recent years, an almost TV-network has made that age-old scheme the centerpiece of their corporate strategy. This almost-TV network will pay at least twice what anyone else will for original content, whether you are selling a TV series, film or even a stand-up comedy special. The modern version of this scheme is enabled by a very unique form of accounting hocus-pocus, used by the almost-TV network. This accounting magic allows the company to claim that it is generating a "profit". The reality is that this company burned through about $2 billion of cash last year, and will burn through another $3-4 billion in 2018. This almost-TV network simply depreciates the value of all these films and shows over a far longer period of time than everyone else ever has. The company claims that their definition is legit, because the content is in their own "library". This almost-TV network is the 1st to deliver its content in a unique way, using relatively new technology they were the first company to do it this way on a large scale. This means the Feds presently have no basis to challenge the almost TV-network on its suspect accounting, because the new "definition" has not been proven wrong. Only the ultimate financial collapse of the company will do that. In the meantime, the accountants and auditors go along for the ride and happily collect their fees, as they always do. The almost-TV network tells its stockholders that it can taper down this spending spigot in the future, to generate actual cash. This is an obvious lie, in 2 ways. If the almost-TV network ever cut spending and new content, many subscribers would drop them like a hot potato. Second, the company is making many big public commitments to spend money like drunken sailors, for several years into the future. The huge deal they made this week that is just to the head guy alone. It doesnt count a penny towards what it will cost to make his shows. This almost-TV network also doubled down on a sequel for a very expensive recent film. They literally doubled the bidding price for the original, which was a disaster. Lets call these Films A1 and A2. A1 isnt still worth most of its massive production cost, which is the value the almost-TV network uses for its accounting - just because A1 is part of their "library". Everyone knows A1 is worth pennies on the dollar. The company claimed that millions of people watched A1. Maybe, but A1 was so bad that many of them probably turned it off part-way through. Most of those who watched the whole thing thought it was a lousy film - and wont bother to watch A2. Recently, the almost-TV network just bailed out a struggling once-major studio, and bought their awful film for big money. Lets call this Film #1. Film #1 would have completely flopped at the box office, as the reviews were about as terrible as they can possibly get. Critics have called Film #1 a total mess. Film #1 is the 3rd film in a sci-fi series, but it is missing the main actors and director from the successful original film. Very recently, the almost-TV network bought yet another film, which a major film studio had put on the shelf - rather than bother losing even more money releasing it in theaters. This film stars the lead A-List actress from the original in Film #1s series. Lets call this film #2. Stockholders in the almost-TV network are flying high right now. In the next couple of years, they will see these heady gains evaporate. This almost TV-network has a rapidly growing mountain of debt, which is getting much more expensive to finance.

Hiding In Her Closet: It is not that long ago that this singer was A+ list. The songs from his band were everywhere. They seemingly came out of nowhere to blanket our airwaves. It was long enough ago that MTV still showed some videos and numerous from the group were in full rotation. The singer always pretended to be pious and religiously pure whatever that means. It was about that time, long before I started the site that I ran into a friend I had not seen in ages. Just randomly we started talking where she went to college and something clicked and I said something to the extent of the singer went to school there. She said yes and then said she had a story to tell. Something you have to know about this college at that time when she and the singer attended. Female students being allowed to wear pants was earth shattering. It was still frowned upon. Hair had to be long. No public displays of affection. If you can imagine a college where the Duggar family would feel comfortable, this was it. There was a big scandal at the school involving the singer. Apparently there was a party off campus. Booze was there and of course consumption of that was not allowed at the school. Our singer got one of the female students drunk and raped her. He picked her because he knew she wouldn't report it. Daughter of a preacher. Drinking. Premarital sex. All of that would equal getting expelled and disowned from her family. A month later the singer raped another student after getting her drunk. The same reasons again, she said nothing. Even though the women didn't report him, they did share the information between each other. Just prior to Christmas break that year, the singer showed up at a party late. He found a student who was drunk and grabbed her and dragged her into a bedroom. She started fighting him and he ripped her clothes off and tried to rape her. She screamed and people came in and pulled the singer from her. He didn't care. He knew she wouldn't report him. He was wrong. It turns out she wasn't a student. She went to a different school. She lived in the town though and her father owned the bank that held many loans the school had taken out. She told her parents who told officials. Apparently they tried to victim shame for all of about 30 seconds before the dad said his bank would call in every loan the school owed and send out a letter to all of the clients of the bank explaining exactly why they were doing so. Many of the clients of the bank were donors to the school and did business with the school. School officials went looking for him and found him in the closet of his girlfriend. Yes, he also had a girlfriend. She was expelled because she was naked and he was naked.

He Tried And Failed - Mr. Hedge: As a young actor, he played a supporting role in a small-budget horror film, about 4 decades ago. Lets call this person C, and the film Film #1. Film #1 was financially very successful for its time. It became a cult-classic, and launched the career of its director, who we will call F. F became A+ list for the rest of his long career. Several years later, C became a director himself, while in his early 30s. The 1st film C directed for American audiences was a low-budget teen comedy. Lets call this film SB. During SB, C attempted to molest one of the young actors. Thankfully, the young actor was able to escape his attempts. Unfortunately, this was because the young actor had been abused before. The horrible experience scarred him enough to vigorously fight off Cs attempts. C was good friends with a couple of serial child molesters. One of them finally went to jail about a decade and a half ago. A short time later, C won his first major award as a director. Although C was only about 50 at that time, he suddenly retired from the business. It probably had something to do with his past. It is highly unlikely that this unsuccessful molestation attempt was Cs only misdeed. If anyone knows anything more about C, you know who to contact.

Pedophile Connections - Mr. Hedge: Just under 4 decades ago, this pedophile photographer was convicted of interstate transportation of obscene materials. At the time of his conviction, such records could not be easily accessed, especially when the conviction occurred in another state - and the punishment was disgustingly light. Lets call him D. D remained based in an East Coast state his entire life. D became a professional photographer, and broke into the business as the official event photographer for many youth diving and baseball competitions. D wanted to get involved in Hollywood. Initially, D became a prominent and active member of early internet Teen Fan Idol communities that fetishized young male actors. D somehow became good friends with another pedophile, who lived on the opposite coast, and had many more connections in Hollywood. Lets call that pedophile NS. You ALL know NS. He was convicted of raping one of his clients for years. A celebrity you all know has accused NS of raping his now-deceased friend. NS worked a great deal with a certain child actor awards show. Lets call that Show #1. Through his friendship with NS, D at one time became the official photographer for Show #1. D also created websites for many young Hollywood actors. A little over a decade ago, a mother accused D of taking an inappropriate picture of her son while at another awards show. Lets call that Show #2. Through the vigilance of many parents, D was banned from Show #2, and the parents kept pressing the issue to the other shows. Several months later, while at home, D doused his video cassettes and DVDs in gasoline, and lit them on fire. The fire began to consume the house. While the fire raged, D turned his gun on himself, and committed suicide. Nobody knows for sure how crimes D may have committed against children during his life.

Guess The Athlete: There is another athlete out there whom is similar to one of the athletes discussed a while back. "Real" sport. Fairly popular sport worldwide. Very popular popular sport in certain parts of the world. Big money sport. Big money athlete. This athlete is currently the best at their sport, has been for sometime and it isnt particularly close. This athlete is active and just getting better. This is a big money athlete. And of course extremely big money athletes play by the rules, right? This athlete strived for big things at a young age with moderate success. Enter pro-hormones. Available over the counter in their country at the time, these pro-hormones have been banned by every athletic organization for some time. These are the supplements that can turn an athlete into the type of athlete that makes the people with the stopwatches and notebooks drool at the potential. A big money athlete. This athlete quickly rose up the ranks, went professional and started to get in the public eye. Professional sports have drug tests. Very, strict drug tests. Many people at this point were concerned. And a solution was agreed upon. This athletes continued success was good for EVERYONE. Luckily there were no whispers of any wrong doing. This athlete is revered by all and has a sterling reputation. Since the athlete had experimented with pro-hormones at such a young age, their endocrine system was severely compromised. The corrective measure for this was to allow a series of specialist to "prescribe" (legally) anything they felt necessary to keep this athlete going. Hormones, research chemicals.. anything. SERMS, SARMS, IGF.. you name it. Since these items are "prescribed" by medical professionals due to an endocrine imbalance (or, "undetermined illness") it was agreed upon that this athlete could legally use them without any threat of recourse from the governing athletic organization. Its in the best interest of everyone, including the governing athletic organization, to keep this athletes sterling reputation in tact for the future. The problem is, as great as this athlete is in their respective sport, they arent yet a household name. And the pressure is on to change that. You need an athlete to be marketable to the masses and the need to turn big money athlete into a money making machine was on. So, another plan was agreed upon between two athletic organizations and a fairly interesting move was made. This move raised more than a few eyebrows at the randomness of it. Most people disagreed with this plan or opposed it all together. Not our big money athlete.. this move is going to give them all of the exposure they need on an international stage to become the one of the most marketable and beloved athletes on earth... and the people behind the scenes counting their money wholeheartedly approve.

First Kills: This serial killer has admitted to almost a handful of killings. They were pretty famous at the time they happened. The thing is though, those are not the only kills he is responsible for. There are at least two more. One of the kills was of someone who had a number one best selling book and the subject of a very highly rated made for television movie. The serial killer made it look like an accident, did a crappy job if it, but still got away with it. His second kill was of a relative who molested the serial killer. Everyone assumed the serial killer was responsible, but no one could admit it. Recently, the serial killer has been telling his story to a couple of inmates who have been sharing it to others and now new charges could be brought against the serial killer.

Better Hurry Up - Mr. Hedge: This always-thirsty foreign born A list model has a checkered relationship history. Her husband is the CEO of a company you all know. Her husband recently raised some much-needed dough, by selling some of the stock he owns. Since their wedding, this was the first sale her husband has made to get more liquidity. Almost all of this CEOs eye-popping wealth is on paper. That will mostly evaporate. If he wants to ensure a lifetime of wedded bliss, he had better keep selling, and quickly. The IPO of his company was almost a year ago. The company was and is valued in an outrageous fashion, at far higher levels than peers. Despite this, it has done almost nothing but disappoint its investors, again and again. His company is not really much of a business at all. It does nothing but burn through lots of cash pretty quickly. For every $2 in sales they generate, they burn through over $1 in cash. At present rates, they have about 2 years of cash left. There is a great deal of competition from larger players already, and his customers really hate the recent changes he made.

MAIL/SISTER OF DARKNESS 02/20
Smoke billows from a herb burner filling the Spirit Room with an eerie haze. A woman stands over Hollywood actress Megan Duffy chanting and shaking a rattle carved with a head inspired by shamanic art, as her client lies motionless on a narrow bed. The tension in the air is thick as the 'healer' places an ornate dagger on Duffy's wrist and, breathing deep, rapid breathes, summons 'higher beings' from the spirit world, asking them to rid her body of evil demons. The woman carrying out the 'working' is Rachel Stavis - the world's only non-denominational Exorcist. And in a television first DailyMailTV was invited to witness Stavis carry out a real-life Hollywood exorcism. We watched as Stavis worked on actress Duffy - best known for starring alongside Elijah Wood in 2012 horror movie Maniac - ridding her of an evil 'entity' that she believes has attached itself to her. Stavis says Duffy has a 'Clive', the name she gives to low-level, low energy entities or demons that have caused the actress to feel negative and down in the dumps of late. Stavis, dubbed the Sister of Darkness, has gone public with her extraordinary gift with the release of her new book: Sister of Darkness The Chronicles of a Modern Exorcist. The horror screenwriter and novelist has secretly been an exorcist to the stars for years, helping Hollywood's elite to get rid of their demons. She has cleansed thousands of tormented people from Hollywood moguls, actors and actresses to stay-at-home moms and politicians. Stavis, 39, has never advertised her services and works pro bono, first starting her hobby by helping 'possessed' friends and family in her spare time. But word soon spread around Hollywood about her unusual gift and now she has a waiting list of mostly high profile clients all desperate to be cleansed. 'My clients range all over the place, but I do see a lot of people you'd think of as famous,' she says. 'I see heads of studios, rock icons, Oscar winners, politicians, I see all kinds of people, I also see the girl next door and this grandma and regular people who are suffering as well.' Most people's knowledge of the subject comes from watching hit 1973 supernatural horror film The Exorcist. And Stavis says the movie, which sees a teenage girl possessed by a mysterious entity, isn't far from the truth. 'With The Exorcist, there's definite truth and the book is so amazing and it's one of my favorite books of all time,' she admits.

Horror: I recently had a chance to talk to someone I have been wanting to speak with for sometime. The subject is painful for her. She says it is still raw. Her husband was an actor. Foreign born. She says it was something he always wanted to do, but from day one, he never had a chance to succeed on his own terms. She says that his spirit was taken from him on his very first movie and within a few years he took his own life. She blames two people in particular. She blames an A+ list director who is an Academy Award winner/nominee. The director, who did not direct that particular movie told all the young men on the set they were going to have sex with men and women and if they didn't want to, they would be fired. Almost all of the actors and actresses on the film were fresh faces or still very new to the business. I know one A- list mostly movie actress who was not even close to legal when she filmed the movie and she told me the director of the movie raped her every day of the filming. She had no control. She was brand new and wanted to be an actress. She was passed around to all the producers and she knows there are movies of her having sex because there were always cameras around. The director of the movie was having sex with every teen he could find and almost none of them were legal. The other person our wife holds responsible for the death is another person working on the film who forced drugs on to our actor because he was not being cooperative enough when it came to sex. The actor started abusing drugs afterwards and would often retreat into a shell for weeks on end. Whenever a reporter would ask about the movie it would trigger all the horrors from the movie. As a result, when our actor would have to do press for a movie he would start using a lot of drugs each time just to be able to cope with the questions he knew were coming.

What is never discussed is why this restaurant went out of business. It might have something to do with the hundreds of thousands of dollars this family embezzled from this A list rock star. The very first day on the project, they embezzled $100K by saying the architect was charging $110K when he was only charging $10K. They were the masters of the fake invoice.

Much like most award shows (not ones that use accountants), just because you are overseas doesn't mean your award shows aren't fixed. The vast majority are and tell the winners in advance so they will show up which delivers higher ratings which puts more money into the executives of the award shows. Some are just more blatant about it than others. So, the former boy bander knew he was going to win which is why he made a point to be at the show. Harry Styles ("The BRITS")

Dirty Old Man: This celebrity is old. Back in Old Hollywood days he was A list both as an actor and singer. Dozens of songs on the Billboard charts. At that point in time everyone knew he was just as bad as Jerry Lee Lewis when it came to having sex with tweens and early teen girls. He just didn't usually marry them and wasn't related to them. If you were in the fan club of our celebrity and were young and cute you were going to get invited to meet him when he was in town. You were also going to get kissed and groped and fondled whether you liked it or not while posing for photos. If you didn't pull away, you were going to see him later that night and be forced to have sex. Like most things in Hollywood, times changed and he slowly dropped down the list. Then, he had a very lucky resurgence which made him a star again for a year or two. Now, this resurgence was three decades ago, but all of you know of the resurgence or at least why he was popular again. That iconic movie of which he was a part. He had a whole new group of fans who were tweens and teens again. Granted, he was not as famous as he once was, but he still did the same things he did decades earlier. This time, some of the tweens and teens spoke up, but nothing was done to him. Fast forward to the present day and he still does the same things he has always done at least when it comes to the kissing and groping tweens and teens but now he gets a pass because everyone says he is old and that he doesn't really mean to be that way. Yes, he does. He always has. If anyone called him out on this, there would probably be hundreds, if not thousands of his former fan club members and other people from the street who would all tell similar stories.

A Night At The Circus - A Himmmm Blind: (Part 2 of a 4 part series of Himmmms sharing their crazy nights. This is the second "M" and has been written as told to the group's writer who typed it all up for you. It's long so the TL/DR short attention span crowd can bookmark it and read it when you want. WARNING: Some NSFW adult language & events).
I'd been a good guy all my life. Truly. The dorky kid, kind of bookish and keeping to myself. I knew right from wrong, and was raised in a large family with a great dad who always steered me away from crazies and creeps. That's unusual growing up in Hollywood, at studios, and there is where I met a lifelong good friend who is the idiot who roped me into sharing this story on this amazingly addictive blog you call CDAN. He and I have a lot in common including bad car experiences and others' bodily fluids, and have shared many insane nights together. He wasn't with me on the one I'm about to share, but I still blame him for it. In fact, I blame him for everything crazy in my life. I still can't figure why I need crazy people around me all the time.
I'm going to start this story at the end. That's how I remembered the entire event all in reverse.
I awoke on the floor, staring straight up at the ceiling. The morning sunlight painted the room. Two faces were staring down at me, and I could barely move. My head felt like a steamroller was parked on it, and some wild animal used me mouth as a port-a-potty. I raised up and was covered in stains, and something smelled tragic. Yes, it was me. The two people hovering over me had a look on their face like they'd just seen a car hit by a train. Total disappointment. Shock, confusion, and disgust. I meant me. That's how I felt. Where was I? Who was I? What happened?
Slowly, the two people became familiar. Family members, two of my judgmental siblings and uggh. What a headache. I was in my sister's house, or maybe it was hell. No, because if I'd died and gone to hell there's be good music and strippers I'm positive of it. Worse than hell, I was at this Leave It To Beaver house here in the suburbs of Hollywood.
"It was nice of that strange girl to bring you home Mister Big Shot Hollywood. Good thing dad's not here or mom either or you'd be in the drunk tank young man. Or at Cedars. Are you on drugs? I thought you were in your writing cycle, hiding away somewhere. You were out with that crazy guy again weren't you? Hope it was worth it, whatever it was. Who WAS that gorgeous girl who woke us up at 4am and dragged you in here? Get up and get a shower because you're stinking up the house."
Nobody loves you like family.
How and why was I here? Why did I feel so off-kilter, and WHAT was that SMELL on me? Is that blood dried on my pants? Is it mine? Oww my hand really hurts damn, that's glass and dried blood in my hand. Oh no. No. Oh hell. NOW I remember. It's all coming back now. I remember Darth Vader. A crazy killer guy. Naked blonde goddess. What the Oh, Dear God. No good deed goes unpunished. Amen to that.
It began with a call from a beautiful young lady who was best friends with my current girlfriend. We'd been dating a while and my lady (#1 - flash in the pan A list singer who defined that heroin chic look of her time) was enjoying her musical success. She was sweet, but a little fruity young and mental like me. I too had found success in the movies and was unprepared for the explosion of life that came with it. I was too young. After all the craziness of that first big movie, I'd decided to hole up and write my next movie. It was a horrible time in my personal life, with a sick parent and feeling like I was going insane. So my girlfriend's friend, we'll refer to her as Saffron she wanted to drag me out of my pit of despair to give me a break.
"Be social, come out with me. Just a few hours it'll energize you and you can go back into your hole and write some more." Sounded good. My girlfriend put her up to it. Gee, thanks. Saffron wasn't a famous celebrity, but she worked for (#2 - follicly challenged A list mostly movie actor who has a franchise and is an Oscar winner/nominee) as an assistant. She was super brainy, graduated from London School of Economics, and she was related to the fallen Shah of Iran. A stunning brunette, tall and tan, and could probably kick my butt. She also modeled, and looked like a svelte image of Princess Jasmine. Saffron was raised in many of the same prep schools as I was, and though American she had a dignified royal sensibility about her. As well as a wild streak fifty miles wide.
Of all damn things, she wanted to take me to a movie premiere. But she pleaded, and since it was at my favorite theater, I agreed. It promised to at least be interesting, not my usual type of film or my crowd. I forced myself to get ready, and picked up Saffron in my new convertible. We drove over to Sunset to the legendary theater where I was shocked there was anybody even there for this premiere. People knew my name but not my face so we were safe from paparazzi and publicists.
We snaked our way up the red carpet to the legendary Cinerama dome. This rotund cinema on Sunset is a landmark, and even though this movie should've premiered on Cinemax they gave it the big screen treatment. It was dog sh!t. A real turd of a film. It starred (#3 - permanent A list daytime talk show host). About 180 degrees opposite what I liked or was used to in my own films, but hey it takes all kinds. It was a fun movie, and pretty wild. Funny enough? It had a lot of talent in it. The Director (#4) was a real sweet guy, very talented, and taking any gig he could to build to his career. He did some great music videos. Sadly, this movie nearly ended him in Hollywood.
The big star of the movie was another warm, sincere, and intelligent man totally the polar opposite of his persona. The movie had several in the cast who were destined for great things, including (#5 - former B/B- list actress who probably none of you will get), (#6 - A-/B+ list mostly television actress who has had two shows make it past the 100 episode mark), and (#7 - B/B- list mostly television actress who did have a recurring role in last year's big pay cable hit). It also starred a young tough guy (#8 - B list mostly television actor who will never shake a character name he played) who became a close pal of mine and who later had a role in an iconic film (#9 - one of the better superhero movies). It also had one that was there simply as a personal favor to a pal of the Producer. That producer had lots of pals, and I'd known him years before and he was quite a showman. The lady he cast, (#10 - it was her second to last movie) was a favor to her current man (#11 - permanent A++ list mostly movie actor). The producer behind it, had certainly had bigger hits (#12 - Starred Julia Roberts) and (#13 - Starred a sexual predator who made a sequel) and his commercial instincts were sharp. Sadly? They were dull on this one. Hey, it happens to us all in the industry.
The real, undisputed, breakout star of the movie was (#14 - A- list mostly television actress currently on a network hit). Let's call her Blondie. She was very sexy, very short, and very fit. She was just hitting the stride of her private life although her professional arc wouldn't peak for a few years until she landed (#15 - a show that didn't quite make it to 100 episodes). Although years later she'd go on to win a big award, at this point she'd mostly done some television, some modeling, and an erotic thriller (#16 - kind of surprising the names that starred in the first two) that put her face on the map. Well, honestly, not so much her face. Her body? Certainly. She was very in-shape, and her derriere looked like a bubble carved from granite. Least you think I'm objectifying, you should know this actress was very proud of her physique. She was no dummy, and knew it was literally her money maker, which she was happy to shake. Or show. Anytime she wanted. I doubt anyone complained, and combined with a great sense of humor, cursing like a sailor (and drinking like one too) made her fun to hang around. Tough lady. Hot too.
This movie wasn't winning any awards to be sure, but people enjoyed it. So at the after-premiere party everyone was in a happy mood. At the old Hollywood Palladium, it was a great place for a party. Strangely, the man starring in it was about the only one not partying. He spent most of the evening on a cell phone in the lobby. Probably cursing out his agent or seeing if Dr. Kevorkian was available. The actresses from the film were dancing, singing, and kicked off the party with many, many shots of alcohol. As did Blondie. It was evident that no man nor woman could compete. Until Saffron stepped up. They began doing Goldschlager bombs and tequila shots while the music blasted, people dance, and the party raged on. In fact the party may have lasted longer than the film's run in theaters.
Striking up a fast friendship due to commonalities in their lives, Blondie and Saffron were laughing, talking, and conspiring. Meeting me, Blondie said she wanted to talk to me about helping her career to survive this dumpster fire of a movie. But first - she needed my help in escaping her date. A guy she'd dated on and off who had become a possessive stalker, and she wanted to ditch him. Would Saffron and I help her? Uhhh, okay, I guess. So when he stepped out to smoke the two ladies jumped in back of my convertible. Both of them in the backseat. I told them to slide low in the seats (my convertible top was down), and we'll sneak out quietly. It was almost 1am.
We began to pull onto Sunset when Blondie yelled out at full volume: HOLY SH&T! HE'S BEHIND US!. Indeed he was, almost inches off our bumper. She yells that "he'll kill us all!". Adding, "He works with Steven Seagal and they're both crazy." She also said he had a pistol and would kill all three of us, because he was a total nut bag. Not the best time to be told the hot actress you just absconded with is the imagined "property" of a Steven Seagal acolyte/assistant/probable hitman.
I ducked and weaved through Hollywood traffic, trying to either draw a cop's attention to us or lose him. I knew we'd never make it back to my house so I started brainstorming. Saffron said we could get to a studio lot and he'd never follow us in. Paramount is closest she's digging through her purse for a pass. Amazing plan, and that's why even drunk she was smarter than me. Looking in the mirror, I could see Blondie turned facing the car behind us, with her rump sticking up over the headrest. Then I - and all of L.A. - could hear Blondie yelling: "F%#K YOU PSYCHO MOTHERF%#KER! YOU CAN'T TOUCH ME NOW YOU PU$&Y! I'M WITH A REAL MAN NOW AND WE'RE GONNA F%#K ALL NIGHT BABY!! WHOO-HOO!!!". Then she gives him the finger. Because, ya know drunken crazed actresses.
We're soooo gonna die.
I wonder if the DGA will honor me with a headstone? I could almost read it know: Here lies the short career of a promising young filmmaker. Snuffed out in the prime of his career by a jealous psycho steroid slayer. All to save the life of a big-mouth blonde with a motor-driven ass. RIP young filmmaker, walk with the angels.
Saffron is almost heaving from hysterical laughter, and I'm scared sh!+less. I'm darting through traffic and turning against the lights, anything to outrun him. We go sailing down Gower, nearly swiping a car, and blasting down the road. Just then Blondie yells "WE LOST HIM! HELL YAY-UH!!". Saffron says, "Oh hell, I think we did!". Between their laughing and dancing in the backseat, I was about to have a stroke.
Saffron said to still head for the Paramount Lot, and just as we took the turn onto Melrose approaching the gates I hear "NO F%#KING WAY???". There was Mr. Psychokiller approaching the other direction. Melrose, this time of night, was pretty empty and he could see us too. He pulled sideways facing wrong-way traffic, to parallel the curb near the gate entrance. He could cut us off, or shoot me when I used the drive-on pass at the gate entrance.
If my mind had been thinking logically instead of about fear, adrenaline, and clouded with sexy-actress influence then I'd have pulled in and had a gate guard help us. Or driven to a police station. But I was far too distracted for anything logical. Back then I had passes for several movie studio lots, as I had friends there and several were trying to get me to sign a deal with their different studios. So I knew we had options.
Saffron shouts "FOX!!! Go to FOX! To FOX! To FOX!" twenty times in a row. Like Rain Man on crack. "Fox!!! To Fox! To FOXXX!".
Blondie drunkenly bellows out: "To Fox! Release the HOUNDS! On the HUNT! Let the games BEGIN!", and making a trumpet blast sound. Both of the delinquents in the backseat explode in laughter, drunkenly singing. Like it was the funniest thing in history. Me? Not so much. Saffron reaches up over the seat and cranks the radio volume full blast on KROQ fm. They played one song to death, constantly: Harvey Danger's Flagpole Sitta. But it's a great song to drive to, so it was perfect when Blondie yelled: "Go !!!".
I did a bootleg turn and spun the car in the road. Saffron flies back, landing on Blondie. I go tear-assing down through Hollywood to hit Olympic Blvd., as we'd hit bumps in the road wide open. No cops in sight. Every time Blondie start singing at top volume we'd hit a bump and the two ladies in the backseat went airborne. I was more worried about the nutjob. Thankfully, I'd out-run him again. It seemed. This was a brand-new Mustang GT convertible and it would haul ass. I'd made a Luke Duke-worthy turn at the cloverleaf onto Ave. of The Stars, and had clear sailing. Blew the intersection onto Pico and was home free.
I could see our turn coming in sight. Approaching the FOX main gate we see you got it Steven Seagal Jr.'s car high-balling right up our ass end like a train behind us. I could never figure how the hell this guy could find us so easy. Did he have a lo-jack up Blondie's ass? I slide it in through the FOX gates and screech to a halt. Not a soul around. Sh&t. I got my drive-on pass out, and put it into the card reader (no ez-pass scanners in those days). The gates C-R-E-E-P open very, very S-L-O-W-L-Y. Like a team of elderly hamsters were pulling it or something. The killer screeches his brakes and leaves black marks and smoke as he overshoots the turn in driveway. Then he backs up. Come on, come on, HURRY DAMN GATE!!
That's when I heard it: "BAM! BAM-BAM!".
I looked back and saw Mr. Psycho holding a revolver. He was shooting at us. From the street, still inside his car. HOLY SH%T!! Thankfully he missed, but it was loud as hell and scared me to death. I punched it through the entry and the gates began to creep closed behind us. We managed to make it inside, just as the psycho pulled up to the closing gate. I didn't think to ask Blondie if he was an employee who may also have a pass. Thank you eight-pound baby Jesus he did not have one. We weaved through construction zones and spots on the lot until we got close to the stages.
Wanting to put buildings and space between us and the gate, I wheeled into one of the open employee lots, killed the motor, and just sat there. I was trying to let my heart slow; while my ears rang from all the racket. Mostly of the blonde variety from behind my head through the entire escape from witch mountain event. Looking over out in the distance around the big building, I could still see that guy's car sitting just outside the gates. Still running. Waiting for us to leave. Minutes, hours, days years. However long it would take, he'd be there. Persistent bastard. Waiting to shoot us. Let's find a phone and call the cops.
From behind me, a blonde cackle: "That was AWE-SOME! Like, seriously. I wasn't shittin' you guys he'd really killed us all. He was shooting at us! He said he used to be a cop. But ya know? We're here. Let's go do something fun". No, let's not.
"Come on stud! You got two hotties here with 'ya. Let's go sneak on a set and do somethin' freaky. Wanna?"
Hell no. But Saffron agrees. I don't. I just want peace, quiet, safety, and a time machine to un-do this night. And possibly a platoon of Marines to escort us home. But Blondie had other plans. "Lookie, lookie what I got guys. Am I just the bomb or what? Ohh damn. I gotta piss somethin' ferocious baby dolls. Yow! Like now. Let's go make a mud puddle!".
With that, my two companions drunkenly claw their way out of my backseat, with liquor bottles in hand. TWO liquor bottles. Full sized. Both ladies still dressed to the hilt, stiletto heels, and stumbling on shaking ankles. So I the now-anointed sole responsible adult in the group, followed. This was a new role for me actually, and I've not been accused of being a responsible adult before that time, nor since.
We wobbled and waddled our way, until I admonished the ladies to please keep the noise down. It was very late (or early) and the security guys here had to have heard the shots. They would throw us off the lot. Which would put us back out there on the road as chum to feed to Mr. 5150. So the girls decided the best way to calm me was with lots of physical contact. With one on the left, and one on the right, they used me as both a walking cane and plot of their jokes. In between swigs of booze, which was obviously affecting their agility, they'd kiss and tease me.
"Uhhh, not that I mind really, but you know I have a girlfriend. In fact she's your best friend."
Saffron giggled, and said it was fine. They "share everything" she assured me. Besides, it would be great inspiration for me to write another great movie. "Don't be such a total pussy" said Blondie. So somewhere between rationalization and inebriation I did what any young hetero man would do in this situation. I turned into a dog, and decided to go for it. Like Clark Griswold in a swimming pool, I lost all morals and decency. But holy hell they were gorgeous. Life's short. Go for it. That's my creedo. Thus, with two drunk and horny actresses, maybe it wouldn't be such a bad night. I thought that right up until Blondie announced to us that she's gonna pee. I looked around. Okay, but let me see I told her there weren't any bathrooms.
Hold this. She hands me her bottle.
Blondie hikes up her black designer dress. Then SQUAT.
Right there. Right smack dab in front of Darth Vader & Luke. She hiked up her dress, adjusted her undies, copped a squat and peed. RIGHT THERE! In the middle of the asphalt, there on the lot, facing a gigantic building-sized wall mural painting of Darth & Luke from Star Wars amidst their epic light saber battle. An iconic painting, of an iconic scene. Now it was background dressing for a drunken actress doing cop-a-squat as she let it flow. Good Lord. Blondie asks about Vader's dick. What color was it? Did light come out of it? Was it an evil penis? Could he give you an orgasm using the force? And on, and on, and on she asked. As she squatted laughing, watching the mural.
Speaking of watching, I didn't have the foresight or warning to consider there where probably a dozen cameras that could see this event transpire (which obviously hadn't registered to me but doubtful girls would've cared. Actually, Blondie probably would've liked the exhibitionism of it all). Meanwhile, I gotta go really bad too, so I turned towards a building and the flower bed and lost 20 rounds of fluid weight in seconds. Only then, did I raise my gaze to indeed see a security camera pointed right at me from the building's side. Not good.
After completion, I turned back around to hear the ladies both cackling again and Blondie cursing a blue streak. While squatting, Blondie peed on her dress. Not a little, but the entire back of her dress was soaked in the puddle. Ten gallons of urine. Wet, she drunkenly peeled it off and slung it over at me until I heard...THWAP!
I felt the sting of a flimsy wet dress plaster itself to my head, face, and shoulders. There I stood, covered in a black designer gown, dripping with rapidly-cooling human urine. Gross. My cohorts roared with laughter. I peeled it off, wringing it out, and trying to wipe off the liquid which covered what little dignity I had left. Not happy. Just as I was about to leave the women to fend for themselves against a murderous psycho outside the gates I turned to see them both. They were snuggled up to each other, standing right there in the dark lot.
All I heard, in a low, almost beckoning pair of voices, was: "Sorry will you forgive us?".
I didn't have to answer. No words could escape. All I could do was stare. Standing there in only her thong and bra. The blonde goddess body wrapping itself around the other dark-haired tanned body. Blondie did her little pout, and looked exactly like she did in that erotic movie. Wow. Saffron began a slow, gentle chuckle at me in my dumbstruck state. Blondie says in a low voice that she really is sorry, but drinking liquor makes her crazy crazy horny. Then she turns to Saffron and plants a drunken kiss on her I'm stunned to total paralysis. They start making out in a major way, hands everywhere. So hot. (I realize now I should've started this story out with: "Dear Penthouse this never happens to guys like me but "). This was really happening.
Lost in my daze, over the girls' shoulders in the back of the lot, I see tiny bright lights coming from way off. All I could think after the chase from hell earlier, was "OH SH!T! PSYCHO KILLER!". I step up and grab the ladies, and pull them as we start to run off towards a big construction dumpster to hide behind. The Fox lot was always under construction for years. So I'm pulling a confused Saffron under her arm, trying to get the bottle from her, as she tries not to drop the glass; and a nearly-nude confused Blondie is being dragged by Saffron's other hand. All while Blondie is running in only her skimpies and very tall stiletto heels (which still only made her five feet tall). She's cursing, yanking her hands free, and trying to reach down and unstrap her heels while running. Very drunkenly. I tell them that I think security is coming for us in a golf buggy. Saffron's got her heels and booze bottle already in her hands saying: "They're coming!".
And as sure as you're born Blondie falls. HARD. Splat, onto the asphalt, her head hitting as the topples over in a pile of tanned alcoholism.
Blondie's fall knocks Saffron down with her, and SMASH goes the glass bottle. Everywhere. They both lay there splayed out in a heap of tangled, half-nude bodies, limbs, and hair with broken glass, booze, and other detritus every which way. How they never got cut by the glass I don't know. We never made it to the dumpster. Seeing the lights getting closer, I turn, bend down, and try to pull them both away from the glass and booze. I got them clear about two feet away, when Saffron yanks me, and I too come crashing down on top of them both in the pile. Thankfully, again, away from the glass though the booze has run down the asphalt to begin marinating Blondie's hair. We wound up in a pile right there in front of the building (Darth Vader-adjacent), sprawled out on the asphalt like a carton of broken eggs. I was then able to bounce right up. Blondie was out cold. Saffron was groggy and now her dress was torn from falling on her heels previously in her hands. Saffron yells: "Sh*T!". At top volume. Blondie starts to mumble, and I'm one leg up and one down leaning over both trying to rouse them before this security golf cart arrives.
Too late. Do you remember that scene in the movie "Stripes"? When the MPs catch Ramis straddling Bill Murray at night while escaping? And the jeep lights make it appear very awkward? Yeah. That was this. Exactly like us at this moment, except I was on top. Of two nearly naked actresses.
One drunk, the other semi-conscious with a bleeding abrasion on her forehead. In a pond of booze, and broken glass. (And I still was damp and stinking of pee).
This wasn't gonna end well. The security buggy comes to a halt headlights blinding us. The first guard was Mean Joe Greene-sized-huge and all I heard was "Wha tha fahh?". Guard 2 (obviously too militant for Army Rangers) had his stun gun in one hand, and mace in the other. Pointed right at me as they slowly approached. Saffron, rubbing her head, groggily saying "Now my dress is ripped too! Thanks". Probably not the best words to utter in this moment. Blondie was just moaning in pain, a red nasty scuff on her forehead..half-awake and mostly bare-assed naked. With me fully dressed, mostly sober, and realizing the headlines tomorrow would read: Two heroic guards rescue actresses from bladder bandit, with me being charged with attempted rape, assault and contributing to public urination or something.
"Guys, this isn't what it looks like honestly, we all just fell down. Funny thing is "
Then they lunged. At me. Scooping me up, away from the girls, and over. I went down like a bag of rocks. Right on top of the pile of glass and booze. Oww.
Saffron was oblivious to the whole live drama of a Cops episode two feet from her, only smacking Blondie around and trying to wake her. It worked. She came to, focused, and started cursing out the guards. Saffron steps over and pushes one guard off me. The bigger guard is grinding me into the asphalt and glass. The other guard lunges for Saffron, who even drunk does a roundhouse kick to his chest and levels him. The big guard yanks me up in time for G.I. Joe to pull out his mace and let it go. All towards the other guard and me. Nice aim.
So I'm heaving, coughing, retching and spitting. Eyes dripping, my hands cut and bleeding with glass shrapnel. The big guard says: "Hold the hell on here! What's going on?". He too is coughing, wiping his eyes. Saffron attempts to explain, as Blondie staggers to her feet. Falling and trying again. I'm just there in a pile. Saffron explains, and tells the guards who I am and about the psycho. Mostly, they're more focused on Blondie, half nude, stumbling to life. After the guards realized who we all were they apologized to me, and began to call Paramedics, which Saffron and I begged them not to do. Saffron yanks Blondie quickly, to prove she was fine. Big scrape on her forehead notwithstanding, she did still look rather glamorous. And clothes-free. Which the Guards both continued to notice.
ISIS could've been "looting the Food King" and they'd never have noticed anything else. Then the full force of Saffron's violent yank of Blondie caught up with Blondie's equilibrium. Saffron hands her the urine-towel dress, which she carefully uses to wipe up her bloody head before throwing it again, right across my head. Uggh, really? Now I've got more of this actresses bodily fluids and DNA on me than I have of my own. But I too use it to wipe the crud from my face, blood from my hands, and hair.
The Guards finally gave us a ride back out to my car, and after serious side-eye from telling them about the crazy boyfriend chase they checked that all was clear outside the gates. It was. They said they heard no gunshots and asked if I was dreaming it? Great. I honestly may have surrendered to the psycho killer at that point. I just had enough. After a round of the Guards determining I was sober enough to drive (not a high standard for them I guess) and not a predator, they let us all go. I was gonna ask for the security tapes, but figured they earned it and didn't wanna push my luck. Because by that point? I'd had very little by way of luck.
I'd like to brag by stating that we all went back to my place, shared a shower and Jacuzzi and freaky circus-sex til sun-up but it wasn't to be. We poured into my convertible and the CD player began to play the most famous song of my girlfriend. ACK! I'm being haunted! I pushed eject, and slung the damned CD out of the car. I felt bad enough. I remember that we eased off the lot, and the psycho was gone. Then we slowly drove until we took Blondie to her condo, and Saffron was sober enough to drive. I climbed into my backseat, and it was the last thing I recalled. I surrendered and passed out. No good deed
Saffron knew where my sister's house was so she drove me there and took a cab home (she later said). Apparently leaving me in the walkway of the hall to my sister's house. Which is where I awoke when we began this story. I was just glad everyone lived. Mostly myself. But after cleaning up, getting rid of the gross smells contaminating my body burning my clothes I began to reflect on the night. I knew enough that I didn't cheat on my girlfriend, and felt relieved. That's the total sad truth. I retreated to my home and resumed writing my most personal film. I copped to everything and confessed the night to my girlfriend. She laughed, and said Saffron told her everything. She was only sad she missed it. We broke up not long after, and I found the love of my life. My ex and I still remain friends to this day.
Saffron got married not long afterwards, is now an amazingly hot mom, and possibly the coolest lady in the Brentwood Minivan Mafia carpool nowadays. We never got a do-over of that night, but I've seen Blondie several times since then over the years. She too settled down and married (even to an attorney so that should tell you she's got real issues). She also had a few kids, and by now has a few ex-husbands too I think, but probably still has a wild streak wider than Saffron's. I know that in the past few years every time I see Blondie, whether around town or at an industry event? It's always with a fond thought. Always with a shy smile, a look of "sorry", and a nod of the head.
All from me, that is.
When SHE sees ME? She cackles laughing, slaps my butt, and makes mocking
"snarling" gestures at me (as if she smells the bodily fluids which never
washed off). I just shake my head, remind her that both Darth Vader and I
have seen her cop-a-squat, and that she nearly raped me, got me killed, and
arrested - all at once. She always laughs, like it's a normal weekend for
her. Thinking back on her life? It may be. All in all, just surviving that
night was worth it and having a story to remember it by. No matter
who owns that Fox studio lot or what Disney does with it? I know a certain
patch of asphalt right there on that lot will always be mine. I still have
the scars to prove it.

Another Chapter - Mr. Hedge: Very recently, this almost-television network released an original, big budget film. In recent years, the director had a couple big box office successes in the same genre. Hollywood directors say 1 or 2 things about this almost-television network. Either the company bought their film when nobody else would, or gave them the kind of money and freedom that nobody else would. This very recent film falls into the latter category. The almost-television network paid very, very dearly for the services of this director. The director called this very recent film a "spiritual sequel" to his 1st film. The 1st film was critically acclaimed, and turned a small profit on a limited budget. Almost everyone who has seen this very recent film seems to agree on one thing: that its terrible. Basically, nobody understood the movie. It stars a B+ list actor/writer who recently separated from his permanent A list wife. It also stars an A- list, foreign-born mostly television actor who always seems to save his best work for one channel. You all know the drill by now. The almost television network will tell its investors that another terrible film was a success. The company will carry the value of the film on its books, for much more than the film is worth, for many years. The almost-television network is burning cash at an extremely alarming rate. Later this year, they are due to borrow even more money. My prediction is that this will cost them very dearly.

One And Done: This foreign born director probably reached A- list in his career. He also did many other things in media, including writing for newspapers and magazines, but is probably best known for directing. He liked to present one face in public, but when making movies, is probably in the top 5 most evil directors when it came to working with women. It has been said that he would only agree to take on a movie if there was a rape scene, preferably more than one. The rape scenes were as graphic and as violent as he could get past censors. What he couldn't get past censors was even worse. He is remembered for one franchise in particular where the rapes were generally gang rapes. The actresses who filmed them never worked again. The scenes often involved beatings and knives and the director encouraged the actors to make everything as realistic as possible. Instead of multiple takes of a scene he would try and do it all in one scene which would often last 30-45 minutes of which he would use 2 or 3 minutes. The actresses were generally cast based on their willingness to sleep with the director where he would tell them how bad they were in bed and degrading them as much as possible. In the second film in the famous franchise he yelled at the actors raping the woman for not being violent enough and personally went up to the actress and punched her in the face saying something to the effect of that is how it's done. The lead actor in all these movies never said anything. He had his own kink involving teen Asian girls so was not going to say anything about rape scenes, especially since he was not one of the rapists and really never had feelings one way or the other for most of his female co-stars including his long time wife.

The Wrong Guy: This is about a murder. A very high profile Hollywood murder. Even though, the wrong guy has, up to this day, been the wrong guy attached to the killing, he was an awful human being. A rapist, child molester, drug dealer, woman beating a-hole. Still though, a guy got away with the murder and then was murdered himself later in life when he was going to spill the secret in a plea deal. The murder I'm talking about has been discussed in every possible media format since almost the day it happened up to the present day. From almost the very beginning of the case, the people in charge of running it knew exactly who the killer was. The problem is that one of the investigators was closeted. At that time, there were very very few, if any openly gay detectives and if he came out or word got out he was gay, he would be fired or forced to quit. The problem he faced was he was having a sexual relationship with a male employee of the killer so the killer had a lot of leverage. A lot. The detective's partner was able to be swayed by an employer of one of the deceased. That employer offered him his choice of woman from a group of about 20 women for an entire year and introduced them all to him at a party thrown at the employer's house. Done and done. It was no problem to blame it on a different person because that different person wasn't around to dispute it. Fast forward a decade or so. Our killer, who had multiple killings in his past, was facing serious jail time. He was also facing financial ruin. He knew if he was going to get out of jail or have a much shorter sentence he was going to have to trade something really good. How about a pair of detectives and the A+ lister who had offered up the woman. Word got to the detectives about it and the next thing you know, some guards at the jail killed the killer and tried to make it look like a suicide. They didn't do a good job, but no one was all that interested in looking too hard at it.

This A+ list mostly movie actress hired a couple of people to threaten a reporter in a very vile way when the reporter wrote something critical of the actress.

Apparently this sham of a relationship between a foreign born A list (action movies only) mostly movie actor and the foreign born B+ list model/wannabe actress is on very thin ice. It was only a life event that kept the sham thing going and there is still a LOT of uncertainty about that whole thing. Jason Statham/Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (birth of a son)

Metal, Misery & War - Mr. Hedge: There is a certain type of metal which is critical to many modern conveniences. Your cell phones battery contains some of this metal. This metal has recently become semi-precious. The price more than doubled in the last year alone. The supply of this metal is quite limited. Over ½ of the entire worlds annual supply is mined in one single African country. This country, and a couple of its immediate neighbors, are simply the only places on Earth with large supplies of this metal. Engineers see no technological design around the widespread use of this metal, at least for a couple decades into the future. This African country is ruled by a brutal dictator, who is the son of a now-deceased former dictator. Child labor is openly used to mine this metal. The people of this country live in some of the worst poverty in the entire world, and thats saying a lot. Why? As is typically the case, most of the windfall from mining this metal simply lines the pockets of the dictator, and the vast network of cronies keeping him in power. The dictators grip on power has recently loosened, if ever so slightly. While the massive theft and corruption represent ample justifications for his ouster, there are other forces at work. Recently, well-armed rebel groups have popped up in multiple corners of the country. They are financially backed in a not-so-stealth manner by large corporations in the Far East concentrated in 1 very large country, which also need a great deal of this metal. They are hoping to install a new regime, which would favor their interests. Ironically, this sort of arrangement is exactly how the dictators father got his start, and eventually took over the country, about 2 decades ago albeit with different corporate backers. The primary cause of this metals soaring cost last year - a certain type of automobile manufacturing requires a massive amount of this metal, relatively speaking. This is also yet another reason for which an A list CEO will not deliver on the many promises he has made to investors.

Guess The Athlete: As of a couple days ago when I last checked, no one had correctly guessed the last Guess The Athlete. Guess the athlete time again. New athlete. New sport. There are many different versions of this sport. It is in the Olympics. It is also a professional sport. Many top professionals are household names on a global scale. Our athlete, however is not a household name. Our athlete only very briefly felt the need to compete professionally. What makes our athlete unique is their level of domination in their sport and their assumed level of drug use. Our athlete is one of the most dominating athletes within their respective sport in human history. Even the best of the best athletes lose a handful of times in their career. Not our athlete. At their peak, our athlete did not lose a competition for over 10 years. Think about that for a minute. Our athlete was so far ahead of everyone else it was almost laughable. Here is where things get interesting. Drug use in athletics is a constantly evolving cat and mouse game. Typically the top athletes in the world are quite a few steps ahead of the athletic organizations. They can use what they please and have absolutely nothing to worry about as far as being caught. Eventually, though, they get exposed. Their tactics get exposed. And large groups of athletes go down. (Much the case with Lance Armstrong) Our athlete has never failed a drug test despite being tested frequently and randomly. Our athlete never played "games" when being asked to provide a sample. Every time a new technique is discovered, our athletes samples are tested and pass. Our athlete is now retired. Recently a new technique for drug use was discovered. Most athletes and trainers dont know this yet. Many athletes will be exposed. Many big names will go down. Much like every prior technique before, the athlete we are discussing today was recently investigated for this. Their old samples were pulled and tested. And, much like every technique and drug that has been exposed since this athlete retired, the athlete tested clean. Never has a sport been so dominated by an athlete. And never has an athlete so dominated a sport in this way. Our athlete today did it without cheating and without drugs. Aleksandr Karelin (Greco-Roman wrestler undefeated from 1988-2000, only wrestled professionally once)
In her speech at ELLE's Women in Hollywood event on Monday night, Jennifer Lawrence shared some of the "degrading and humiliating" experiences she has had in Hollywood. After acknowledging that hearing about the sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein had been "harrowing," Lawrence recounted a story about the producers of an unnamed film, who asked her to lose weight. "One girl before me had already been fired for not losing enough weight fast enough," the actress said. "And, during this time, a female producer had me do a nude lineup with about five women who were much, much thinner than me. And we all stood side-by-side with only paste-ons covering our privates. After that degrading and humiliating lineup, the female producer told me I should use the naked photos of myself as inspiration for my diet." Lawrence is known for speaking her mind, yet she says that didn't make a difference on this specific occasion. "I asked to speak to a producer about the unrealistic diet regime and he responded by telling me he didn't know why everyone thought I was so fat, he thought I was perfectly 'fuckable.' The actress recalled that she felt "trapped" due to her relative lack of power: "I couldn't have gotten a producer or a director or a studio head fired. I let myself be treated a certain way because I felt like I had to for my career. I was young and walking that fine line of sticking up for myself without being called difficult, which they did call me, but I believe the word they used was "nightmare." "I didn't want to be a whistleblower. I didn't want these embarrassing stories talked about in a magazine. I just wanted a career," Lawrence said. But after she was cast in the Hunger Games films, things changedbecause she had become "a movie star," who had "the power to say no." "I worked out every day because Katniss is strong, but I would be damned if I was going to represent the ideal that someone who looks skeletal is a positive body image. I was not going to have young girls skipping dinner because they wanted to look like Katniss." The actress expressed her support of the commission proposed by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, adding that, "in a dream world, everyone is treated with the exact same level of respect. But, until we reach that goal, I will lend my ear. I will lend my voice to any boy, girl, man, or woman who does not feel like they can protect themselves." Given her own knowledge of the trials young women can go through in the film industry, she offered solidarity to others in a similar position: "I want you to know we're here for you. We're all here for each other. Together, now, we will stop this kind of behavior from happening. We will stop normalizing these horrific situations. We will change this narrative and make a difference for all of those individuals pursuing their dreams." "X-Men First Class" (producers Lauren Schuler Donner and Bryan Singer)
