Wally Kurth On Contract at Days, Leaving GH

One of the things that Carolyn Hinsey always said when she was a Soap Columnist was "treat fans like they're smart." Alot of soap execs should have listened to that advice, if they had we might still have All My Children, As The World Turns, One Life To Live,  and so many others. It also applies to gossip bloggers who talk about soaps. Daytime Confidential is the gold standard when it comes to treating their readers as the savvy fans they are. Take the article about Wally Kurth signing a contract with Days Of Our Lives.

Not once in the post do they mention Wally's status with General Hospital. They don't need to because as you'll notice their commenters already picked up on the fact that he can no longer appear on both shows as he has been doing for several years now. Why do I bring it up? Because I have always been fascinated by the fact that the remaining soaps are so hardcore about their actors not appearing on other shows. I mean imagine if Michelle Stafford could just momentarily on The Young and The Restless as Shelia, especially when Nina isn't in heavy story rotation. If the remaining shows worked together, they probably could increase ratings a lot.

Anyways Wally has signed on for Days and so come the fall that is where he will employed full time. From the DC article "I did some digging and learned the new brass at DAYS is so serious about penning stories for Justin and Adrienne Kiriakis (Judi Evans), they offered Kurth a contract." I wonder what tales they want to tell with Justin. 

One Last Pour: Say Goodbye To Cougar Town

Initially this post was going to have a video that I saw on Facebook. In the video characters from Family Guy, American Dad, The Big Bang Theory, and Cougar Town were pouring wine/alcohol into their respective cups. It all culminated with the tagline for Cougar Town's final season, "One Last Pour." However there was no embed code for the video, so we get the picture of Jules and Ellie hugging. 

It's hard to believe that 6 years ago the show started and has grown into a weekly routine for so many of us. It's hard to believe that after tonight, we will never have another all new episode with the cul de sac crew. Sure they could reboot it but that's not bloody likely nor I do I want them Hollywood types anywhere near my show. 

Whose joining me in crying into my wine tonight? I'm gonna go out and buy my very own Big Tippi and drown my sadness in alcohol, and probably some tears too. I'm gonna miss my bitchy Ellie the most, though there is something to be said for Jules' zany niceness. This is all too much for me to handle. Maybe I'll start drinking early. 

Which member of the cul de sac crew will you miss the most? 

Rob Kardashian Depressed and Suicidal

Family and friends are supposed to help you. love you, and lift you up when you're feeling down. The Kardashians are not your average family though, so therefore they want you to be blue especially if you are caught on camera. Really it all about the money and/or the notoriety with that family. Which is why I'm not surprised with how they are treating Rob recently.

There have been all sorts of rumors floating around about Rob, especially after he compared Kim to Amy in Gone Girl. Of course we all know that Kim is a famewhore whose sham marriage is about to erupt any minute now, what we didn't know is that she is just as cold hearted as her mother. See Kris Jenner scripts every moment of their lives, and she is doing the same thing with Rob's sadness. Blind Gossip reports that "He is very depressed and genuinely believes that certain family members would rather have him kill himself then tell anyone the truth about the family. He also believes that they have planned the story line as to how they will react when he does. He will look like the villain, and they will look like the sympathetic heroes (“We tried so hard to help him!”)" What's sadder than someone feeling this way about his family? The fact that he is probably right about how they will react if the worst happens. 

The possibility of Rob attempting/committing suicide is really high. According to BG "They may get their wish. He has already attempted to off himself at least once in the past couple of years." I hope that he gets the help that he needs and rids himself of the vultures that he is unfortunately related to. 

Reality Show to Replace Zayn Malik in One Direction

It's never easy to say I told you so. Ok so maybe it is but this is not a post for me to gloat that I was right on the money when I said that One Direction was going to replace that scandal ridden Zaun Malik. I mean how can they have a boy band with only four members? Did we learn nothing from 90 Degrees? I mean sure they had a few hits but now we're stuck with Nick Lachey being a celebrity and keeping his shirt on, and nobody wants that. 

RELATED: One Direction The New Menudo?

Anyways Simon Cowell is no dummy when it comes to what teen girls want. He is behind some of the most successful acts around and he knows that the girls want five guys so that her crush can change on a daily basis. Yes One Direction fans don't want to think about one of the OGs being replaced by somebody else but the truth of that matter is that sooner or later either the band gets new members or they break up altogether. Blind Gossip writes about the directioners "Although they will need a cool-down period to grieve over Zayn’s departure, fans are going to have to face the fact that Zayn will likely be replaced." Essentially they need to get the f**k over it and accept the fact that this is happening. 

RELATED: Was Zayn Malik Fired From One Direction

Of course since this is Simon Cowell we're talking about the replacement will be chosen via a reality show. You didn't really think that they were just going to plop someone in Zayn's place did you? BG informs those who didn't know, "Then there’s the money. There will be all those extra $$$ from airing another hit reality TV show. And new fans – younger fans – will join the 1D fandom if they feel like they have a role in selecting the new singer. More viewers = more new fans = more album sales = more concert ticket sales = more merchandise sales = more $$$ for everyone! Especially Simon." Simon Cowell like Taylor Swift is an evil genius.

GG Exposes: The Hating Of The Babs

She's a journalistic icon! She created The View! Celebs and pseudo-celebs clamor to be part of her most fascinating people lists! However there is very little love for Barbara Walters elsewhere.  I learned this the hard way when l did what was suppose to be an innocent storyabout how Babs had a nightmare that she was as hated as Rosie O'Donnell. When I checked GG on my phone I was astounded to find that there were already 15 comments posted on it, in just 5 minutes another 8 comments were added, none of them kind to Ms. Walters.

Part of it was the treatment Barbra gave to daytime icon Susan Lucci when she visited The View to promote her storyline on All My Children and her memoir. When the classy Susan was talking about being called into a meeting with the execs before news of the cancellations took place, Barbra glibly replied "We get worried when they call us into meetings too, just kidding" Not nice Barbra. A Gossiper who goes by Shadow said this "I do hate the old bat. Babs was snarky to Susan Lucci when she guested on The View. She had to blurt out about The Views Emmy noms rather than allow Susan to finish her thought. " If there's one thing you do not so it's treat our Susan with so much disrespect!!

Another source of unhappiness with viewers and Barbra comes in the form of her defending her boss Brian Frons. Apparently on quite a few occasions after what is dubbed "black Thursday" when AMC and One Life To Live were axed from the schedule, she defended her boss. Normally this would be admirable but it is common knowledge that Brian was not a soap fan and infact wanted ABC Daytime out of the soap business for a while. An anonymous gossiper said "She lied for the most hated man in television Brian Frons when she said that he was so upset at having to cancel the ABC soaps that he was in tears. In reality he couldn't care less. Ofcorse no one likes her."  Another Anonymous person wrote this "Despite this, I always respected and liked Barbara Walters UNTIL SHE LIED ON NATIONAL TELEVISION AND TOLD HER AUDIENCE THAT FRONS TEARED UP OVER THE CANCELLATION OF AMC AND OLTL. The moment I read that, I knew that BARBARA WALTERS HAD BECOME A SHILL for the MOST HATED MAN IN television - Brian Frons. Give me an effing break! " Yep Brian Frons destroyed the soaps and has ruined the reputation of Barbra Walters.

A lot of people, and I do mean a lot of people are also upset with Ms. Walters because she allows the discrimination of older viewers. One Gossiper replied "Listen up Barbara you need to start speaking up for all of us over the age of 49! We are not being counted in the viewership ratings." Yet another one added "Yes, I am very offended to know that just because I am 56 years old now, I do not count for the ratings! Huh - how old are you now? You shouldn't even be bringing in ratings then! Ridiculos!!!"

It's sad when a legend falls, and it seems as though Barbra has fallen, and fallen hard. Obviously there are comeback stories but how many times has that happened to an older person, especially someone who has so much going against them. Barbra Walters is no Betty White!

Beth Behr's Faux Pas

Have you seen the meme on Facebook that says,'Sometimes I worry I'm going to say Shut The F**k up out loud instead of in my head'? I love that one and usually share it on my page when it shows up, well one of our favorite 2 Broke Girls had that happen to her one day recently. While filming a scene one day, Beth Behr came down with a case of diarrhea of the mouth.

So let's get down to business shall we? Beth was doing a scene in front of a live audience when she messed up. That's when she couldn't help but say something we have all said about our various works at one point or another. CDAN reports that she "was performing a scene when she messed up in front of the audience. She then shouted that the whole thing was f**king retar*ed." Part of me wonders if Jennifer Coolidge was anywhere near this scene, you know cause Caroline and Sophie don't really like one another... It makes sense in my head. 

As you can imagine there was a dead silence. Maybe people thought that Beth would apologize or crack a joke about what she had said, they thought wrong. Enty Lawyer wrote "When she said it, the whole place just kind of stopped. The actress never realized why everyone stopped and just moved on with her retake." Yep apparently she didn't realize what she said and went about her life as if nothing out of the ordinary happened. Maybe in her mind it didn't, maybe she thought she said it in her head. 

JLo's Boy Toy Lie

So apparently today is the day for liars here at Generation Gossip. Sure it would be an uneventful day if all of the celebs just told the truth and nothing shocking happened, but come on two posts about out favorites lying to us in a row? It's almost enough to make me want a mimosa, ok so it doesn't take much to make me want one but still. So over the weekend it came out that Jennifer Lopez lied to us about breaking up with her gay boyfriend Casper Smart and dating her hunky costar Ryan Guzman.

You may or may not know but JLo was a producer on her latest movie, The Boy Next Door, so she wanted that pic to make it's money back in a hurry. What better way to promote a film about a boy obsessed with an older woman than to make the public think that the two actors involved are actually boinking one another?  Here's what Blind Gossip had to say about the matter "Lopez and Smart never broke up, and Lopez and Guzman’s relationship was manufactured just to sell their movie The Boy Next Door (which earned back its budget but only grossed $35M at the box." It's always about the money with Jenny from the Block isn't it? 

Why not just tell the truth about things? I mean Meryl Streep tells no lies and everyone loves her, according to Jared Leto she has to be nominated for an Oscar according to California state law. Yet most actress' just seem determined not go the same route as that class lady. Which results in Blind Gossip writing quotes like this "here’s today’s lesson: You should never believe a SINGLE WORD Jennifer Lopez or her team ever says about her relationships!" So sad. 

And just because it's Music Monday here's Jenny From The Block...

Lady Gaga and Perez Hilton's Feud Has Ended

When I lived in New York I would stroll through Central Park in hopes of not only finding the love of my life but also awesome scoop like this. All I got was dirty men wanting me to join in a threesome and Kelly Rutherford, what the hell am I going to do with that???  Anyways in my gut I knew that the feud with Perez Hilton and Lady Gaga was either a publicity stunt to begin with or had ended fairly quickly and wanted to be the first one to report it.

So CDAN beat me to the punch in reporting that the feud had ended, albeit in a blind item. So technically I'm making this a win for me. So over this weekend, Enty Lawyer wrote that Gaga and Perez's feud is way behind them and they just aren't letting the public in on it. He wrote that he doesn't know why they "are being slow on saying that they’re friends again." Probably a publicity thing. He also says that the video that Perez put up saying that he doesn't want to be friends with the Pop Diva again was a "lie, they’ve patched things up a while ago" OO the webs we weave when first we try to deceive gossip bloggers. 

Here's some even bigger news for you to digest. You know how everyone went crazy when Lady Gaga announced her engagement to Taylor Kinney? And how Perez felt the need to tell everybody that he didn't want to attend his 'former' friend's wedding? Well he was lying and he will actually be a part of the wedding. Enty writes that Perez told  "another lie, he’s going to be her best man!" Seriously who do they think they are fooling with the faux feud?

And because it's Music Monday here's Gaga's signature song 

Recipe: Jack and Coke Chicken

First and foremost I know it seems like I cook with a lot of alcohol, and that's because I do. Alcohol just makes everything taste better, don't believe me? Boil liver in some beer and tell me it doesn't taste 100% better. Anyways this is a recipe that I tried last night and it is so delicious that I felt that I needed to share it with you guys.


Chicken Breasts

Honey Jack Daniels





So this is such an easy recipe that I almost didn't even have to write it out for you guys but you know me, I'm a giver.

Basically put the butter in a frying pan, have the stove on high heat. Once the butter is sizzling put the raw chicken in the pan. Season to your tastes. Pour a little bit of Jack Daniels onto the raw chicken, followed by a splash of coke onto each piece of meat. Do this for both sides of the chicken.

Fry it up. During this time make a Jack and coke. Drink it. Then make another one and try to control yourself, Turn your oven on to 350 degrees. Place the chicken in a baking pan, and then pour the Jack and coke over the chicken again. This helps bring out the flavor that should have been sealed in with  putting the liquids on the raw chicken.

Let it bake for about 30 minutes and then serve and enjoy.

Blind: Billy's Out..Kinda

Generation Gossip

Remember Busy Billy Kids? The homophobe who was caught doing things with guys, well it seems our friend is hoping that he can trust his crew not reveal who he truly is, sadly he can't.

See more stories are trickling into me about him, this time the he is openly bi-sex and always has a boy on the side. Apparently the Superstar is quite the man between the sheets but he prefers the company of gentleman. Some of the people are starting to talk, including a female cohort who enjoyed him immensely at least once.

His penchant for younger guys though may be his undoing. Maybe it's his issues with his family, including a feud with baby bro or maybe he just needs more love but man-friend needs to stop going for the jailbait and start going for people who are closer to his own age.

Blind: Screwing Over Coworkers


Considering how long this show has been off the air it’s remarkable how much money this very large cast makes. They do well. Not spectacular, but considering almost all of them have done nothing since the show ended decades ago, that is pretty good. As time goes by, and opportunities start to slip, the cast likes to jump on all money making opportunities. That is fine if it is a solo thing, but more often than not, the person offering a job wants more than one of the cast. One of those is generally the star of this blind. She arguably had the most popular character on the show, but is in the top three as far as status since the show. That character though is what organizers want, so they give her a call. She loves the call and her only condition ever is that she be the only member of the cast to be there or they won’t get her. Recently she could have given a cast member a chance at a $250K payday. She told the producers that was a no go. She wanted to be the focus and they agreed. As recent as that was, there was something that happened in the past week where she managed to screw over the entire cast in one day. A big payday was in the offing. All the cast had to sign a contract and money would be flowing into their pockets. Our star though decided she wanted a better deal and is holding up the process until she gets triple what any other cast member receives. If she does not get her triple pay, then she won’t sign and no one will get paid. She loves doing that to her co-stars. She loves when they beg with her and plead with her and kiss her butt and buy her presents just to make sure she always signs. This time though, the remaining members of the cast are fighting back. It is a potentially big payday. Enough money to see them through several years and there will be a war if our star does not sign. They will throw every bit of dirt at her they can. The star doesn’t seem worried. As of a day or two ago, she was still holding out for triple. Always screwing them. One day at a time.

Blind: Will They Break Up Or Make Up?

Blind Gossip

You may be wondering what this singer’s fiancee is going to do. Well, we can give you a little insight as to what’s going on, although no decision was made as of yesterday.

They did talk it out. Actually, let’s take that back. They were physically in the same place, but it’s more like the management team members were talking. The guy and the girl themselves were barely speaking to each other! For most of the time, one was in one room and one was in the other room, with mediators running back and forth between the two.

She tired of him a long time ago, and this latest bad behavior is just another straw on the camel’s back. He made her look bad, and that just wasn’t part of the deal.

She wants to break up with him and maintain some dignity. Of course management wants them to stay together. However, they are depending on their powers of persuasion (and a cash incentive) to get her to do so.

So, it’s up to her at this point. She has agreed to make a decision within the next couple of days, so you can expect either a reconciliation photo op or a breakup announcement very soon.

We believe that there is a 90% chance she stays with him. Despite how mad she is, our girl certainly does love the publicity that comes from being engaged to a bigger celebrity. In other words, she wants to maintain her dignity… but publicity and cash may win out. Plus, she only needs to put up with him for another year or so.

However, even if she does decide to stay, we hope that fans weren’t actually expecting a wedding… because that is NEVER going to happen!

Blind: Limitless Bearding Possibilities

Blind Gossip

This actor recently broke up with his girlfriend. No surprise there. She was just the latest in a long line of fake “serious girlfriends.” And we are going to give you the scoop on exactly how it works!

“Serious girlfriends” are always models or actresses. They are set up by their respective publicists. If the first few dates go well and they both agree to continue, they go into contract. A minimum of one photo op per month. After the first year or so, their P.R. teams float the rumor that they are getting serious. “They are talking about getting engaged/having children/shopping for rings/looking to buy a house/going to move in together!” That’s the final flurry of publicity. Then, a few months later, they amicably break up.

There was one time that the contract was broken, but even that actress eventually came back around, and the “relationship” was resumed and completed.

This setup works so well that our actor has repeated it five times in the past ten years! Yes, there is a pattern there… and there is no limit to the number of times it will repeat in the future!

Blind: Actor Was Drunk and Trying To Pick Up Girls

Blind Gossip

There are lots of bigger and flashier clubs near his vacation spot, but this television guy chose a smaller, out-of-the-way bar because he thought no one would recognize him.

That didn’t happen. Not only was he spotted and photographed, but he tried to pick up on few girls during the course of the evening, too!

“We were having a bachelorette party and he went directly for the three prettiest girls in our group. He was kind of wobbly, but he would put his arms around them to keep himself steady. He was showing off his watch and telling them that he was really rich and kept saying ‘I could take care of you.’ We didn’t know if he meant that he thought he could take care of them for the evening, or if he was proposing something longer-term! He actually has kind of a high-pitched voice and was pretty gross, but he thought he was a real catch even though none of us would go home with him. Fortunately, he didn’t get too handsy. He was definitely drunk though. He was pounding down beers and stumbling all over the place!”

So much for sobriety!

Blind: New Vocabulary For Roommates

Blind Gossip

Uh oh! The publicists are maaaaad!

They don’t want me to call him my “roommate” anymore. It doesn’t matter that we actually are roommates, and have been for many years. They just don’t want me to call him that! :(

They also now want us to say that we were “childhood friends”, and that we are “like brothers”. That’s weird, because we grew up hundreds of miles apart! I don’t know about you, Diary, but I don’t think meeting someone in my twenties makes them a childhood friend, does it? Perhaps he was my imaginary childhood friend and I just forgot? But I don’t mind the part about us being brothers. Nobody minds if brothers share the same bath… or the same bed. ;)

They also want us to be very careful about the word “partners”, Diary. Don’t say “partners” anymore. Say “business partners”.

Whew! I don’t know about you, Diary, but all this wordplay is exhausting! Maybe I should just let his publicist do all the talking from now on. I mean, I want to please my boyfriend, but this is ridiculous! Wait a minute. Did I just say “boyfriend”? Oops! I’m probably not supposed to use that word to refer to my lover! Wait. I probably shouldn’t have said “lover” either. Dang, this is harder than I thought!

Anyway, Diary, it’s time for me to go. I need to inventory all my old video tapes. Then I’m going to spend the rest of the day smearing my boyfriend’sroommate’s lover’s partner’s imaginary childhood friend’s soon-to-be-ex-wife. Busy, busy, busy!

Until next time, Dear Diary….

You may be asking yourself why a rich and famous actor and his wife would need/want/have a male roommate living in their house. Well, I’m certainly not here to help pay the rent or participate in that stupid job wheel on the refrigerator!

No, I am here because I am the actor’s BOYFRIEND! I am the person he loves. I am his partner in life. The marriage and the baby were just an arrangement to help him look straight. Unfortunately, he really picked the wrong person to partner with on this sham, and now it’s my job to help him get rid of her as soon as possible.

Well, I’ve got to go and leak a few more nasty anecdotes about her! Until next time, Dear Diary…

Blind: One Punch

Blind Gossip

An acclaimed actor. And an acclaimed director. A director with a huge ego, recently made even bigger, and his acclaimed friends are pricks too, so it’s not like there’s anyone around to check his behaviour… until he took it a step too far with someone who has some experience with knocking around douchebags on set.

So it’s been a long shoot. And this is a technically particular director. His exacting demands have made it so that production is taking a long, long time. He berates and belittles the crew, he’s impatient, and he’s often cruel, even unethical in his pursuit to get the “perfect shot”. With the hardware now, he feels even more justified in being as unkind as he wants to be, because in his mind, art is often not compatible with compassion. Compassion was the problem when one of his leads, due to a physical ailment, relied on wardrobe to come up with a solution that would alleviate some of his pain. It was a relief to the actor and, for the most part, it wasn’t a big deal aesthetically, until a long shot was required, at which point the director noticed that an adjustment had been made to help with the actor’s discomfort.

The director went ballistic. He got right up in the actor’s face. They start screaming at each other. They decide to take their argument somewhere private, where they continue to yell at each other. It’s LOUD. It’s ugly. It’s level 15 on intensity. The director won’t forgive, the actor won’t apologise. Everyone can hear. And then…


The actor exits. On his own.

The director?

Is found by the crew moments later. On the ground in his tent. One punch.

There is a well-known young female celebrity who is very upset about the Vogue “Brat Pack” photo spread! However, she is not mad because her ex is featured in the spread. She is mad because she wasn’t asked to be included!

It actually wasn’t a personal thing. It was a model-y thing. The magazine wanted very lean and lanky celebs who could pass for high-fashion models. That’s the reason our celebrity didn’t make the cut.

By the way, the sibling of one of the Brats did not make the cut for exactly the same reason!

Blind: Woe Is Me Tour Only For Work

Blind Gossip

This actress is, without a doubt, one of the messiest celebrities in Hollywood!

She recently tried to explain away her dr*g-and-aolcohol-fueled craziness by claiming that it was due to the loss of a former colleague.


First of all, she has had these same substance ab*se issues for at least ten years! Secondly, she was never even that close to her former colleague. They didn’t hang out out outside of official work or charity functions. There were no dinners or basketball games or vacations or day hikes.

So what is this “woe is me” tour really all about? Sure it’s a publicity ploy for her new movie. But it’s also about what is happening after the movie.


While her costars have six or seven projects in production and in development, do you know how many this actress has lined up for 2015 and 2016? Zero. Nada. No one wants to hire her because she is an uninsurable mess.

So, do you think her bid for sympathy will work… and result in work?

Blind: Cut Off The Arm To Save The Band

Blind Gossip

The pressure is too much! The schedule is too grueling! The fans are too mean!

The fact that this singer is gone is not shocking to us, and it should not be shocking to you. His unhealthy habits render him completely unable to handle any work or travel or publicity or stress in a rational and healthy way.

He wants to pretend he quit? Fine. Let him pretend he quit and that it was his decision. He actually got fired.

Why? Because this is a business, and a business decision had to be made. The band has to maintain a certain image to be successful, and that image definitely does not include what he has become. The dr*gs have taken over his life. He has gotten thinner and thinner, he can’t even pretend to be in a stable relationship, he can’t control his outbursts, he can’t do his job, he can’t pass a dr*g test, and he can’t get insurance. He had to go.

In 127 Hours, James Franco’s character had to cut off a significant part of his body to save his life. In this case, they had to cut out one significant part of the group to save the whole band.

Frankly, his band mates are relieved that he is gone. And you should be, too. He gets to live… and so does the band.

Blind: The New Menudo

Blind Gossip

We know that some of you are upset over changes in your favorite band. However, if you can stop crying for five minutes, you’ll want to know what’s next!
Management is now considering replacing exiting members of the band – one at a time – with younger and fresher faces and voices!

BG calls it “The Menudo Strategy”. For approximately twenty years, starting in the late 1970s, the management of a Latin boy band called Menudo constantly swapped out the boys as they got too old or tired or screwed up. All told, there were over THIRTY boys (including singer Ricky Martin) who were members Menudo at one time or another!

As our band is still very popular – and making LOTS of money – employing this strategy makes good business sense. There is absolutely no point in killing this cash cow and putting dozens of people out of work just because the original members got old or tired or screwed up!
It won’t be hard to find the first replacement. Already under consideration: two boys who star in different television shows, one young film actor, and two boys who are Broadway performers.

Do you think “The Menudo Strategy” is a good idea or bad idea for this band?

Blind: She Doesn't Like Pal's Wife

Blind Gossip

Anyone who accuses this actress of doing things just for the publicity probably doesn’t realize that she doesn’t even have a publicist. She has always simply done exactly what she wanted to do.

When she was younger, she used to do a lot of wild and destructive things, and she was unhappy a lot of the time. Now, she’s calmer and more constructive, and she is much happier. Not perfect, mind you, but genuinely happier. And she is still doing exactly what she wants to do.

There are four things about which she is genuinely passionate: her business, her charitable work, her husband, and her kids. She also has to take care of her health issues. That’s where she puts her time. That’s where she puts her energy. It’s a very full life.

There definitely isn’t any time or room for phony people who want to latch onto her to boost their own profile. She knows that this actor’s marriage is a sham. That’s why she didn’t go to his wedding… and that’s why she’s not going to let his phony new wife use her.

Blind: Singer Vents On Reddit

Blind Gossip via Reddit

I feel so whiny and ungrateful even writing this: I am a famous person. I sing and act for a living, make a huge amount of money and I’m in magazines and on TV every few days. It all began when I was 19 so it’s not something I’ve been doing my whole life and I’m still not used to it. I honestly don’t think I ever will be.

I grew up in a poor country. The only reason I didn’t grow up very poor were my mom’s awesome money skills. I’m an only child, so it was just mom, dad and I. They both worked shitty low paying jobs and if something unexpected came up that we’d need money for, they’d take additional jobs and work their butts off. At one point my mom had three jobs and dad had two. When my mom was 40 she even went to school again so she wouldn’t have to struggle forever. She graduated while working two jobs. I am beyond grateful for everything they did and love them more than anything.
I got into this thing kind of overnight. It’s something I dreamed of doing when I was a kid, but never really had faith anything would come out of it. When I got paid for the first time I calculated how much my parents would have to work for that kind of money and then sobbed like a lil bitch for 5 hours because I felt so guilty. I promised myself I’d do anything to make their lives easier. I bought them a house and 2 cars and send them on fancy vacations every once in a while. I tried to talk them into quitting their jobs so I can provide for them full time like they did for me for so many years, but they said no way. They were so humble about it I was ashamed for even suggesting it.

The problem: my job makes it impossible to maintain friendships, relationships or see my family more than 3-4 times a year. The guys either wanna date me because of the money/fame, or the pressure of being constantly followed by the paps/written about on the internet becomes too much and they bail.

My two absolute best friends live in another country so I don’t see them that much either. I flew them over two times while on tour so we could just hang, but they got freaked out by the paparazzi waiting in front of the hotel. Usually my only two choices are either to go out to do fun things while trying to hide, or just stay in the hotel. Hiding usually works for a while and even if someone recognizes me I don’t really mind, I’ll sign a few autographs, take photos with kids, thank them and that’s it.

It’s the paparazzi that I hate with the fire of a thousand suns. They’re rude, inconsiderate and pushy, and they scare away everyone I love. Example: I was in mcdonald’s with my male best friend, I was dressed very casual with no makeup and I thought no one recognized me; a few hours later our picture is on the internet saying I got a new boyfriend; of course his boyfriend got pissed. When I went to dinner with my female best friend, they wrote something like “lonelydorknerd has a fat best friend” like she’s my charity case, and used an unflattering picture of her from the restaurant. I feel so bad, that shit hurts, and especially if you’re not used to it (and very few people are). They’re both very normal people with normal jobs. He’s in academia (a psychiatrist) so he’s kinda used to the attention, even though it’s the different kind, but he knows how to handle it. She is a full time nanny tho, a small town girl next door, and as much as she was fascinated by the whole thing at first, she got sick of it quite fast and I’m scared she might get sick of me too. She is already avoiding to meet in public and nowadays I only ever see her on skype or at my house when I’m not on tour or filming (which is rarely).

I dated my ex for 4 years (we were in college together). We broke up for reasons (at the time) unknown when I started getting more famous. He just stopped talking to me and went completely no contact. I was crushed for 2 years after that because he never let me know what the hell happened. He did contact me eventually. He said he was really sorry, how he had been jealous of my success and felt inadequate, everything felt too much and he didn’t know how to handle it. He said he knew I’d never make him feel inadequate on purpose and I was the perfect girlfriend and didn’t deserve to be treated the way he treated me. In the meantime he got a good paying job and got his shit together, said I was the love of his life and we dated for a while again. After a few more months he proposed, I said no because I couldn’t get over him disappearing on me, even though he said he’d never do it again. I miss him and regret saying no, although I’m not sure if it’s just my general loneliness speaking or we really were “meant to be”. I don’t think I’ll ever find out because after I rejected him he went no contact again, and he’ll just text me for birthdays etc.

I also dated a few other guys in the meantime, both famous and non-famous, but it just didn’t work out, for reasons I already mentioned.

Apart from the paparazzi/tabloids/fucking perez problem, there’s also the obvious I-don’t-have-time-for-anything problem. If I’m not touring or filming, I’m recording, doing interviews or events. I honestly don’t have time to poop. I see my therapist once a week and go to the gym twice a week and those are the only 2 things I do that are not work related. Days off usually make me even more depressed because they’re usually in the middle of the week so there’s no time to fly out to see my family or friends or fly them over, and I just stay home alone, throw myself a pity party and contemplate how fucking lonely I am. Easter is coming up and there will be a huge family gathering at my parents’ and it makes me so depressed to think it will be another one I’ll miss. At this point I just wanna be like fuck everything and just go home and hug my mom. I can’t though, because I am filming on location in fucking Croatia and can’t just bail.

I have no idea how my colleagues from the industry do it. How they date, see their families or start their own families. My manager says it’s normal and I should just suck it up because “this level of fame won’t last forever” and I should make the best of it. I don’t know if I can, tho.
I don’t know what my question is. I just needed to talk to someone I don’t pay to listen to me, and my friends are probably sick of hearing me whining over skype. What should I do? How do I stop feeling this way? Do I just drop everything and become an accountant or whatever?
 No Guesses.... Do you have any advice for this person?
