I had no ideas about the rumors but it seems like I was one of the few. E! News fired longtime gossip columnist Ted Casablanca for unspecified reasons. Most seem to think it's because he accidentally/on purpose maybe outed Academy Award Nominee and Avengers, Mission Impossible and Hurt Locker star, Jeremy Renner. Others think E! is using this as an excuse to cut Ted and his high salary.
I have reposted Ted's Blind Item, the alleged outing is in the second paragraph where Jeremy is used instead of Freddie. Most of the comments on the various gossip sites also say that rumors really began flying on the set of MI 4 and connected Jeremy to Tom Cruise.
I don't think anyone should be outed until they are ready, unless they are harming the gay community. If Jeremy is gay, I hope he can come to peace with it and if not, then people should leave him alone.
Blind Vice: Double Devious Doings!
Oh, what a tangled website we weave, when at first we practice to deceive. That's what one of those crusty writer guys said, right?OK, maybe not exactly, but conniving, breasty Harriet Talons sure had that in mind when she backstabbed so many people on her current hit show, her own network's New York website is currently weighing whether or not to write a scathing exposé on Harriet's behind-the-scenes shenanigans—they're that damn impressive.Back in Hollywood, but equally as stealth—and to far more sexy results—would be an Oscar-nominated star's party behavior. Want to hear what Freddie Friction picked up along with his cocktail? A date!And it's weird on so many levels: Just like Harriet, who tells the world constantly (mostly in women's magazines) how down-to-earth and shy and humble she is, Jeremy's been busy spinning a similar ersatz media presence. For instance, he often talks about how "straight" he is. Like, a lot.Isn't it fascinating how very unlike Crescent Cumquat and Topher Hairy-Tuchus—who often depend on extravagant online shenanigans to hook up with guys they fancy—Freddie is. He just asked a guy home at a recent N.Y. party! Right in front of everybody!And even though the party dude who Freddie asked back to his place was completely shocked, he did manage to say yes, in case you were wondering.Yeah, maybe it was kinda stupid for Freddie (who we hear is a tad on the old-fashioned side) to let this all go down in the open, but hey, makes more sense than Craigslist, huh? Less of a trail…I think Freddie's gonna be a crafty one, just like Harriet. In fact, I'm sure of it!AND IT AIN'T: Felicity Huffman and Chord Overstreet, Joan Rivers and Zac Efron, Betty White and Robert Pattinson
