Blind Item Revealed

This B-list actress on an A-list show is acquiring a status as a homewrecker. People tell me they can count several relationships and marriages our B-list actress has ruined. She too easily finds herself in the fire and brimstone of passion, then the fire and brimstone of drama.

Who is our B-list actress?

What is the A-list show?

Carice van Houten

Blind Posting: 1st Febuary 2016

Her character was known for sleeping with a married on Game of Thrones, but it appears Carice van Houten is now a method actress — it’s just been announced that van Houten is expecting a child with boyfriend of four months, Guy Pearce.

Pearce and van Houten met on the set of Brimstone, which filmed in mid 2015, while Pearce was still married to wife of 18 years, Kate Mestitz, and van Houten was in a long-term relationship with Kees van Nieuwkerk. After filming was complete and an affair begun, Pearce announced his separation and a quick divorce followed, while van Houten quietly ended her relationship.

It’s not the first time Van Houten has found herself the victim of these accusations – in her native Holland, van Houten has a reputation for relationships with involved men.
