    They weren't married though I realize that doesn't improve the situation much. It was a good interview.

    This is such a coincidence, because just last night I was browsing the Blind Items sub right from the very first page, and came across this blind item from aaaaages ago by Lainey that's supposed to be about Claire Danes and Billy Crudup.

    You remember her, don’t you? Clinging to love?

    Well I hear the situation hasn’t improved. She now believes the only way she’ll keep him is if she gives him a baby. And they’ve been trying their best with no results. Which is why she’s now visiting fertility specialists, popping vitamins, doing whatever it takes to improve her chances. But the longer it takes, the more frantic she is that he’ll leave her. Sick with worry, sick with insecurity, the girl is STRESSED out, which really can’t be helping things at all.
    Anyways, if you go to the next page of that thread, you'll come across a blind item from Ted C (who remembers him haha!!) that's supposed to be about Billy Crudup and Mary Louise Parker.

    Shall we hit the sheets for a little slurp-slurp ac-shun? 'Cuz that's the gooey game a busted-up couple has been playing for years.
    Ever since Jilted Jenny was ditched by her lov-ah, everyone has been marching out the pity parade. Well, maybe before we start throwing tissues her way, we should check out the big picture, eh? Turns out this sniffy sweetie isn't exactly all that innocent.

    Ya see, J.J. has played the sneaky suck-face (and more) game herself. Years back, she was busy bumpin' with a costar while her mate was out of town. Classy broad, huh? Needless to say, Jen was soon busted by her partner on her extracurricular boffin'. Huh. And to think years later such a similar sitch was played out once again, only this time she was left to nurse the broken heart.
    Karma sure can blow, don't you agree? Ms. Jilted sure the hell does.
    So anyways, I'm thinking this is how Claire justifies it in her head, having an affair with a man who left his pregnant long-time gf for her, cos Mary cheated on Billy some time in their relationship as well??? I'm not excusing Claire, just trying to explain her blase attitude towards it, cos I'm also taken aback by it. Reading this reminded me of that thread I read last night.

    And this is probably how Billy justified it in his head when deciding to leave Mary Louise Parker for Claire, because well... Mary cheated on him as well.

    And I don't know if this has been posted but when googling Mary Louise Parker, she's apparently going to release a memoir, which would make for good gossip.

    why are people still talking about this and asking her about this? what is she supposed to say? she was honest and said she went ahead with it regardless of knowing it was wrong. i'd much rather that than a bunch of faux guilt and self-flagellation.
    and besides, he's the one who chose to leave his pregnant wife but as usual, it's the other woman taking the hit.

    Claire really has a hard, manly face. Her nose is very masculine.

    And GOD said, thine face, it IS a marvel; not unliketh that of a MAN.

    Danes was asked about it because she was being interviewed by Howard Stern. He specializes in having people address stuff like that.

    Crudup committed the bigger offense, but Danes is pretty amusing when she casts it as some kind of growing experience and how she had to be strong. I wonder if Ryan O'Neal tells himself that, too?

    When Billy Crudrup gets a new thread for saying shit like this then I'll happily pile on him too.

    Funny but interviewers don't seem to ask him about it all that often... Weird, huh? Kinda like how Russell Crowe seems to avoid questions about how he homewrecked Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid's marriage and she was the one who got all the shit for it. I mean, it's almost like there's a sexist double standard or something...

    Stern will ask anyone about something like this. I remember he got Corbin Bernsen to admit that he cheated on his honeymoon. My guess is that Crudup has less guts than Danes does about being interviewed by Stern.

    Howard was just asking about periods in her life. I found it interesting to be honest. He would have asked Crudup if he would go on there but my guess is Howard has no desire to interview him. What has he done in the last 10 years?

    Ah yes, "I was in love" always justifies shit like this. Nothing about I made a mistake and I'm sorry. I don't give a shit about double standards they're both indefensible assholes.

    I may live under a rock but honestly I have no clue wtf either of them are even up to. I know Danes does that stupid Homeland show that I think there was a hilarious spoof of on SNL or MadTV but other than that, they're non people and they all sound like they suck.

    Like he busted Nick Cannon's chops on America's Got Talent regarding Cannon's breakup with Mariah Carey.
