Daily Blind Item — Growing Pressure

ba44537132b0b093d933f70c22e71424.jpg

I’m hearing constantly today about growing pressure from underlings in this company. Apparently the underlings are furious about the company ties to Saudi Arabia and want them severed or else.

It seems like the people in charge may have a full blown corporate revolt on their hands soon.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

What is our company?

Daily Blind Item — Get Me Written Off!

EricKuhn4457.jpg

What happens when you star in a big movie but you can’t take a lot of the projects you’re being offered because you’re signed up for a television show that you’re lukewarm on?

Well, you call your agent and demand that they get you off, of course!

That’s exactly what this fairly sudden A lister has done and their agent is working overtime to try and get them written off. Maybe a nice bribe of some cash in an envelope or a fancy trip will work.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our A Lister?

Daily Blind Item — No New Music For You

DSC_1134+copy

Don’t expect any new music from this A list singer in the future. She has no interest in recording a new album after her latest one tanked and failed to meet expectations.

“She blames the fans for not appreciating good music,” says the source, Cranky Catherine. “I kinda think it was more on the album sucking.”

I guess that it’s a mercy then.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our A list singer?

Daily Blind Item — Movie Brawlers

Fighting.jpg

Prepare for this to be big news.

I’m hearing of HUGE conflicts regarding this upcoming A list movie. Apparently there are so many agendas at play that the creatives involved are clashing over portrayals of characters and situations etc.

“It’s common for a biopic,” says a source, “but not to this level.”

Another source tells me that one A list talent involved is a big part of the difficulty, claiming that [name omitted] is attempting to create a whitewashed version of events because of their personal ties to one of the people depicted.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

What is our upcoming movie?

What are the agendas?
