madonna-unapologetic-bitch-rebel-heart.jpg

A famous ex lover of Madonna’s was reportedly shopping a book about their relationship and Madonna allegedly succeeded in shutting it down at the tenth hour with the help of connections in the publishing industry.

‘The book went into sordid detail about Madonna, as well as other famous partners of [name omitted] and it could have caused great embarrassment to Lady M.”

Madonna infamously detests others writing about her and recently slammed a popular screenplay called Blonde Ambition that Universal have snapped up.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is Madge’s bookworm ex?

Daily Blind Item — Accent Faker

IMG_1556-24wcfbq.jpg

This actress is one of the most famous in the world right now, but there are some from her past that find her a little hard to recognise.

‘She had an accent when we knew her,’ says one person. ‘She seems to have lost that with the fame.’

Someone else insists she went to speech therapy during her ascent to fame.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our actress who lost her accent?

Daily Blind Item — Feelers Out

She’s one of the most successful actresses of television and is considered by many executives to be “ratings gold” and yet this bona fide A list Actress can’t seem to find a regular gig lately, despite her people putting the feelers out.

Why?

‘Bad reputation,’ says one source. ‘Enough said.’

‘We love her, but we don’t love her that much,’ another spills. ‘We could make her good offers for good shows if she cleans her act up.’

It’s rare for anyone to make Chevy Chase look like a delight.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our difficult one?

Daily Blind Item — Not So Funny

The-UP-Comedy-Club-in-Chicago.jpg

This A list comedian, who is definitely in the top tier right now, might make a living making others laugh, but I highly doubt he’s in the mood for jokes right now.

A source tells me he and his non-famous wife are divorcing and they’re citing irreconcilable differences as the reason, but her affair is the actual truth.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our comic?
