Daily Blind Item — Acting Activist

 

youth_activism_header_3-2.jpg

Apparently this iconic A list television actress has spoken with her agent about possibly taking a few years off from acting and just focusing on being a full time activist.

She has a lot of charm and seems dedicated to her causes, but her agent is advising her against the drastic move right now.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our acting activist?

Daily Blind Item — Scary Pitch

 

Rant-in-progress-e1488995992738.png

You only get a limited amount of time for a pitch, so you have to make it count and sell whatever you need to sell in a concise and successful manner. That’s a lesson we all know, right?

Evidently not. This A list celebrity had a pitch with a television network recently and instead of selling her show, she went on a mad rant against the executives and Hollywood, and only left after security was called.

Welp. That didn’t work. I guess she wants to live life on the blacklist with Charlie Sheen.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our angry ranter?

Daily Blind Item — Keep That Hidden

affair-782956.jpg

You might consider this popular couple A list and I wouldn’t blame you. They’re adored by their fans and occasionally set social media on fire with their relationship, but something that they’re worked very hard to keep from public knowledge is their shady beginnings.

“They were both in relationships when they first started bumping uglies,” source “Gay Gregory” says. “It would probably cause a lot of shit on social people if their stans found that little fun fact out. Whoopsie!”

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our couple?

Daily Blind Item — Stop the Leaks!

040308-N-0000P-002

We’re hearing that there might be trouble in paradise at this big time network / streaming service.

Apparently the producers of this A list show are furious with the network, blaming them for recent leaks and even outright accusing them of staging the leaks to force the producers into making decisions.

‘They pretend to be handsoff,’ whispers someone on the producer side,’ but they’ll try to pressure you into fulfilling their agenda through media contacts.’

A source on the network side tells us that the producers are just being paranoid and leaks such as this happen with every big show.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Which is the A list show we’re talking about?
