Daily Blind Item — Delay the Bomb

expect-delay

What happens when you have a bad script that needs work and you’re under pressure to start filming already?

You delay and delay until you can’t delay anymore.

And that’s exactly what’s been happening, I’ve been told, with this upcoming movie that is anticipated by some and dreaded by others.

I guess development hell has a new member. I hope they have an extra bed and fiery martinis.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

What is our movie?

Daily Blind Item — Cannot Cope

635941288691995957-1761224894_stressed-woman-under-stress-1000x600

I guess the old routine of locking your bedroom door and screaming into a pillow doesn’t work for this stressed A list writer-producer anymore.

The A lister is on the top of their game and is considered to be one of the best in the industry, but with several successful television projects under their cap and a demand for more, they’re just struggling to cope.

‘[Name omitted] adored the job for so many years,’ a source confides, ‘but with kid[s], work feuds and mounting pressure, I think they’re falling out of love. [Name omitted] keeps joking that he understands why Dave Chapelle quit and ran away all those years ago.’

‘[Name omitted] needs to scale back,’ the source continues. ‘Everyone is telling them.’

The source didn’t use the word breakdown at any point, but that’s what I was getting.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our A lister?

Daily Blind Item — Divorce Talk

IMG_2462__1_1024x1024

This show host is known for talking, but don’t expect her to talk much about this.

Viewers have noticed that something seems up with the A lister and they should soon have the answer to their questions.

‘She is getting a divorce!’ a source says exclusively to me. ‘They’ve been trying to save their marriage for the last year, but it just isn’t working out and she’s ready to throw in the towel.’

Apparently some big money will be exchanging hands in the settlement.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our divorcing talk show host?

Daily Blind Item — Network Worries

rolling-stone-100-best-tv-shows-of-all-time-c76cdd0b-2e04-4769-84c1-0faab178ddbf

This network is one of the biggest in the world, but there’s worrying up top regarding the future of the company and their relevance to the public. Their biggest hit is ending / has ended and nothing else currently airing really comes close. It would be better if they had some potential worldwide successes on the upcoming slate, but insiders tell me that they’re not confident with any of the new shows.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

What is our network?
