    Default Entertainment Lawyer 11/13/06 (yes, very old)

    Crazy Days and Nights

    So, this next story is not going to be very specific but I think you will definitely get the idea..Another middle of the night call..this one was like at 2am ish...Former A lister from late 80's early 90's who was all over tv and movies..Since I have known her she has been using crack intermittently....got a call from her that morning because she had my # memorized..she would have called her publicist but could not remember his number..(thank goodness for small favors) It seems she had been with a "friend" she met at a bar and did not know his name or other details except he called himself "Andy" and they went to go score some crack because they both wanted to party and he was paying so she was all for that..So they end up in a neighborhood where (a) this car is out of place and the (b) people do not belong and therefore, after they have made their purchase the cops pull them over about 15 seconds later....now a little back story may be in order here..Our 80's A lister is on probation for possession and other various infractions stemming from her prolific drug abuse over the past 5-10 years and so she is looking at jail that night and quite likely for an additional three to six months or so as well for violating probation..Cops pull over the couple and "Andy" has the crack on him and it is his car..My client has nothing on her and for some reason which is unclear, neither cop asks her for identification or her name..I am guessing that each thought the other had because "Andy" was causing a bit of a disturbance and therefore she was not really on their mind..I can maybe see that happening...MAYBE..but then she stated that they looked through her purse to see if she was carrying and she was not (according to her)..This is where her story gets fishy cuz a cop is going to ask for i.d or see it in your purse while checking for drugs and so I am guessing she did a "favor" for one of the cops who either (a) recognized her or (b) just thought she was hot in that crack whore kind of way..you might say I have no reason to think she would offer a "favor" to the cops except she has not always paid her bills on time and more than once has offered me a "favor" to offset or pay her bill..I declined..but know she is not above that..

    So.."Andy's" car is towed, "Andy" is off to jail, and my client is on the side of the street where she has no reason to be and so what does she think to do first? call a friend? no...call a taxi? no..she decides she should call her publicist, but cannot find his number so calls me instead so I can give her the #..I ask her why she needs it at 2am ish and she explains..

    This situation just shows how messed up this town is and how desperate people are for publicity and to get their name back where it was and to be an A lister again..She is thinking to herself that she will get her name in the news and no doubt it would be and maybe her publicist can get her a nice little story in People about her trying to get her life straight after a stint in rehab..That is all possible..BUT in REALITY, what would have happened is there would have been a police investigation why she was let off and not arrested for violating probation..and the cops would have been in trouble and pissed..she would have ended up in jail for the violation of probation and everyone would know she uses crack and is not the innocent angel she once portrayed..the I am going to rehab for prescription drugs routine would not have worked..

    Also..if she had got hold of the Killer P(ublicist) her defense would have been a lot harder for me because god only knows what he would say to make her sound pathetic, inspirational, or whatever his mood came up with at the time..Now some of you may be saying to yourself..hey, but wouldn't a publicist (a) keep her out of the news in this situation (b) want to keep the client out of jail?....a good publicist would do that..99% of them however would do whatever it took to get pub for their client and for themselves....the pub is saying to themselves, I want to land another A lister for myself, and how will they know about me if I hush this one up..I cannot go tell everyone I hushed it up..so therefore I need to come up with a story that gets me and my client in the news..Everyone needs to know my name also...just one vicious circle baby..

    Oh..I got out of bed...went and picked her up..dropped her off at her place..declined the offer of a "favor" and told her she needed to go to rehab again without tipping off the press..as of Thursday she was still thinking of a way to work rehab to her advantage before going.....
    I was poking around on a site that debunks CDAN. I'm on the fence about it but after reading this very old one I get the feeling that possibly the site started with true blinds, ran out of real ones and then went to made-up ones.

    However this one just screamed Tawny Kitaen to me. I looked her up and she has worked a lot more than I remember.

    What's the site that debunks CDAN? I don't believe all of his stuff, but he does reveal about 160 blinds a year.

    No way this was ever Tawny because she was NEVER EVER A list in any decade. I always assumed this one was Tatum O'Neil (forever A list for winning an Oscar and a crack addict)

    I know this has been mentioned before, but doesn't it seem odd that he'd outright say that this is one of his clients? Wouldn't it be easy to trace back to his identity? Just seems a little too fishy to be true.

    When was Tawny ever A List? C at best even for Enty's standards.

    But Tatum was never "all over" tv was she? The only tv I ever knew her to be in was one episode in Sex and The City a few years ago.

    A simple search of IMDB has a list of her tv appearances during this time frame. Particularly 'Rescue Me' which was pretty big a few years ago.

    Oh maybe then, I forgot she did that Run Bambi Run made for tv movie back in the early 90s.

    Not sure if he's a fraud or not. No one does.

    This doesn't really fit Tatum though. It says an A lister from the late 80s early 90s, which is probably her least productive period. I know an Oscar should mean permanent A list, but for a long while there she was C at best, particularly during this period. I would describe her as an A lister from the 70s because that was her prime.

    I guess if we wanted to get really crafty, then we'd go back to those old BIs and try to connect if any of the subjects of these blinds have the same attorney.

    But I can just about promise you this guy isn't an attorney. Think about it logically: for 4+ years, the guy has been divulging private client information on the internet. The CA Bar or a celebrity would have gotten involved looooong ago to put the kibosh on that.

    And besides, what reason would a big-deal entertainment lawyer have for starting such a blog? There is NO conceivable reason that a major celeb attorney would risk losing multi-million dollar clients, and his entire career, over some stupid gossip site. There's NO way that even his ad revenues are up in the millions.

    He might be some other celeb-affiliated person, but he's for damn sure not an attorney.

    As a lawyer myself, I totally agree that there is no way this guy is a lawyer writing blind items about his clients as he purports to be doing in this particular one. It's difficult to imagine a more massive and career-ending ethical breach then posting info on a gossip site about a client who has retained you for your ability to provide confidential assistance. The fact that the name is missing doesn't change a thing.

    Also, the second he published something about a non-client he received from a blabbing colleague source as a result of that lawyer's atty-client relationship, his identity would be apparent in the legal community. It's simply implausible that he would derive his info in this manner.

    Certain of his posts do appear to be written by someone with some sort of legal background. My guess is that he either practiced briefly or worked in a law office of some sort at some point.
