This is what Blind Items looks like once upon a time

They would get posted almost like a spread sheet. This was from July of 2003. “The A List” was ran by a woman who would share inside info on celeb gossip. This was a great site. Now it doesn’t exist but you can find some stuff saved to the internet, like the post I linked. The blinds are gone but this spread of the basics for each celeb is still fun to read.

I miss the days of OG Blind Items and celeb gossip.

Her post on Ben Affleck made me laugh because I remember there being rumors he was addicted to alcohol and hookers lol. And Britney has since pretty much confirmed her and Ben fucked. That came out recently.

The Christina Aguilera one is accurate about her being awful. I remember seeing her in Virgin Records in Times Square and she was a bitch. And then the Z100 morning people spoke about how terrible she was one time and it confirmed what I saw, a spoiled bratty bitch.

“Aguilera, Christina. "Rude, crude, selfish and disrespectful." "All around mean rotten little bitch." (Though I've heard at least one story of her being nice when she didn't have to be). Stuck-up snot. Possibly prefers women and three-ways. Cocaine addict. Has breast implants. Bad tipper. Racist; no longer dates white men. Keeps her weight down thanks to the over-use of laxatives. (Which matches the feces coming out of her mouth). Linked with Carson Daly (Christina, is this the best you can do?), Leonardo DiCaprio (boy, did that pairing turn the Skank Switch up to 11), Enrique Igelsias, and Justin Timberlake.”

I loved the old A list - it was always fun. Some of it was surprising but not too much. I was already on the Datalounge when the A-list was linked here, I think that's how I first saw it.

It's hard to say. I found "Is He She Gay" and "The Datalounge" and "The A-list" all around the same time-ish.

Not fake. Their names were Amnon Zippin (from Israel) and Christopher Hickey (from Massachusetts). They're both long dead, AIDS got them just like it got so many of us in those days. Amnon and Christopher used to hang out with Leonard. They also used to get me into Studio 54 when I was in town, back when Studio 54 was Studio 54.

It wasn't a fixture on vintage DL, but it would get linked and discussed often, especially when lamenting the loss of Blue Agave and their legendary gossip. I remember thinking how dated it felt even then. And while it is old, I think OP's "this is how the dinosaurs used to do it back in the days before smartphones" characterization is silly. Popbitch was also linked/discussed a lot then.

by Anonymousreply 27August 4, 2023 2:09 PM

R27 actually, OPs phrasing works because that was the early days of the internet. How did you feel it was dated? It was new back then. The internet as a whole was mostly new to the public. We’ve come a long way in just 20 years. So yea, it is the way we dinosaurs did it before smartphones and new age internet.

She was on point about a lot of people with the A List. Interesting to look at it again and to see the hits & misses.

>Trump, Donald. Focus of evil in the modern world. Embodies much that is wrong with America. Short-fingered vulgarian. Linked with TWANS.

>Campbell, Naomi. Unpleasant woman. Drug addict; has been hospitalized for overdoses at least once. Poster child for Assholes Of America (Models Division). Dim bulb. Is physically violent toward her staff. Linked to Eric Clapton, Adam Clayton, Robert De Niro, Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Fiennes, Quincy Jones, Val Kilmer, Eddie Murphy, Sean Penn, Sly Stallone, and Mike Tyson.

What's TWANS?

The occasional odd name pops up like William S. Cohen pops up (Who? Yeah, Clinton's Secretary of Defense) for a bizarre reason. "Anti-semite." Makes no sense. From his Wiki entry:

[QUOTE]Pursuant to his father's wishes, Cohen was raised Jewish, attended a synagogue,[6] and also attended Hebrew School in preparation for his bar mitzvah, but he decided not to follow through with his bar mitzvah when he was informed that he would have to convert formally to Judaism, and he began to practice Christianity.[7][8]

Cruise, Tom. Oh, definitely not a Friend Of Dorothy. Why would you ever think such a thing? No, certainly not. And he definitely doesn't force his gay lovers to sign lengthy non-disclosure contracts before he gets involved with them; that's just a vile, untrue rumor started to bring shame on this quite emphatically heterosexual movie star. Certainly not someone who has and enjoys sex with lots of men. One would never hear Mr. Cruise described as "awkward and inarticulate" when speaking without a script, and certainly never hear him described as "vain, shallow, and pretentious." No, certainly not--the reverse is true of Mr. Cruise! $cientologist. Vain & arrogant. Never graduated from high school. Acted badly towards Nicole Kidman during their break-up, which was caused partially by his insistence on raising the kids $cientologist (she wanted them raised Catholic) and partially because of her pregnancy, which may have been his and may have been Ewan McGregor's. Broke up with Nicole via his representatives. (Cruise, you swine.) Linked with Patricia Arquette, Cher, Penelope Cruz, Rebecca De Mornay, Nelly Furtado, Anthony Hopkins, Nicole Kidman, Heather Locklear, Paul Newman, Lisa Marie Presley, and Mimi Rogers.

by Anonymousreply 35August 4, 2023 2:54 PM

There was a thread here a few years ago saying Hilary Duff is kinda racist and DLers rushed to defend her saying that isn’t true. Maybe it isn’t, but I giggled seeing that in 2003 the only gossip for Hilary Duff was that her mother was a raging racist bitch.

by Anonymousreply 36August 4, 2023 3:02 PM

She also had it right with Jodie Foster, stating she’s a closeted lesbian before she came out.

Foster, Jodie. Closeted L______. Reported to be very nice in person. Some experience with drugs in the past. Close "friendship" with homophobe Mel Gibson. Had major falling out with Michael Douglas. Linked with Gillian Anderson, Russell Crowe, Mel Gibson, Rob Lowe, and Kelly McGillis.

by Anonymousreply 37August 4, 2023 3:38 PM

Gellar, Sarah Michelle. Recovering anorexic. Prefers to go out with men less famous than she. Has grown too impressed with herself and acted the diva on the set of Scooby Doo. Has hair extension because of the damage all that dyeing has done to her hair. Just had her breasts done (or not, according to Liz Smith). Either "bitchy" and "imperious" or simply too take-charge and aggressive for fragile egos. I've received a couple of e-mails from store clerks and cashiers who said that SMG was "condescending" and "patronizing" to them. Linked with David Boreanaz (whose marriage she helped destroy), James Marsters (who she should dump Freddie Prinze Jr. for), Jerry O'Connell, Matthew Perry, and Freddie Prinze Jr (whose attraction, for SMG, is one of the great mysteries of our time).

Actually, the few people I know on that list are described very accurately. Makes me think the rest are probably, mostly true.

by Anonymousreply 39August 4, 2023 3:46 PM

The A-List was back before social media etc. the gossip pushed out was based on actual gossip from insiders mostly. It’s not like now where anyone can claim anything on social media and it spreads like wildfire. Back then it was usually people who actually had to work with or deal with stars in some aspect

R43- the origin is unclear. A-List was the first place I recall seeing that acronym (necronym?).

by Anonymousreply 44August 4, 2023 4:25 PM

This list dates back to about 1998 on the old alt.showbiz.gossip (ASG) newsgroup. You can look up the original posts on Google Groups if you search long enough.

"The Widow Anna Nicole Smith" was a running gag on ASG, as was censoring bisexual and lesbian and writing "FOD" instead of "Friend of Dorothy."

Most of the gossip is just educated guesses to blind items at the time. A lot of it is made up or just repeats old urban legends (i.e., the Clara Bow and the USC football team rumor from "Hollywood Babylon").

by Anonymousreply 45August 4, 2023 4:40 PM

A lot of it was emails received. R45 a lot of things I’ve read from A List are true, or came to be true (like Jodie Foster being a closet lesbian, Lance Bass being a gay bottom, etc) this was all before they came out. Most of the info shared on A-List were from emails she received. She even says some of it is from real insiders. And stuff that is her guesses she makes it clear with the wording.

by Anonymousreply 46August 4, 2023 4:49 PM

A lot of it is true but a lot of it is fake - especially the further back in age the celebrities get. A lot of the Errol Flynn stuff, for example, is nonsense.

Errol Flynn is known to have been terrible.

Parker, Sarah Jessica. Very superstitious. Her relationship with Matthew Broderick seems to have gone through some rocky periods but is more solid now; she reportedly threatened to get pregnant, at one point, if he didn't marry her. Has made many more enemies than friends on the set of Sex and the City. Has inverted nipples. Linked with Nicholas Cage, Robert Downey Jr, Michael J. Fox, John-John Kennedy, and Chris Penn.
