Solve for Q

2(2)= Q7 x 2

Jake has change his ride. It's been a while seen we've seen him in his Prius.

He's now driving an Audi Q7. (See the Q7 or the back of the car)

"The 2010 Audi Q7 is a large luxury crossover SUV that seats seven passengers." (Now why would a single guy need seating for 7? Carpooling to work?) "With its powerful stance, fine build quality and confident performance, the 2010 Audi Q7 has everything you'd expect from a German-engineered large crossover SUV. A platform mate to its Volkswagen Touareg and Porsche Cayenne cousins, the Q7 is more than a foot longer, offering more space for shopping spoils as well as allowing a third-row seat." (must be for all those farmer's market finds and his shopping buggy)

"The Q7's saving graces include a well-crafted interior, relatively agile handling and a number of luxury features that make the Q7 ideal for daily family use and road trip vacations."

The Q7 is available in a choice of three engines: a 3.6-liter V6, a 4.2-liter V8, or a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6. 3.0-liter clean diesel V6 ("TDI"), introduced last year has much better fuel economy. But let's face it an SUV is not a environmentally minded as a Prius. Can you see Jake's concern over the safety issues with Toyotas at the moment, but there are other sedans. Why a luxury SUV with seating for 7?

And it is tops in safety. In crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, it scored five out of five stars in front- and side-impact testing. The Q7 also aced the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tests, scoring the top rating of "Good" in that agency's frontal-offset and side-impact tests.

Lot's of room, highest safety ratings. No sports car buyer is he? Sound more like a family car kind of guy.

But did you notice they also change color. One day he's driving a Black Audi Q7, and then a couple days later he's driving a gray one.

Now how does that happen?


Hmmmm Jake bought 2 of the same Toyotas a few years ago and now this with 2 Audis. Seems to be a pattern. Wonder why? Especially if there is only one driver at the house or is there two who drive at the G house? ; ) And all those sets of keys.

And why would a single guy need two family trucksters? Don't think it's for 4x4 driving, but maybe more like the 2 x 2 in his life.

Can't have post without a picture that grin from yesterday.
Think he read all the chatter out there about him going for slim sexy muscles? Or just thinking about the new position he just did, and going to try out later at home? (Exercise people Exercise!!)

That's awesome. A Baby Tile thread on Fanchitchat.

I get up at shortly after 4 in the mornings and I'm out the door @ 4:40. Then I come back and I allow myself about 20-30 min to play online before I've got to get ready for work. There's no way I could put together a BabyTile comment in that time.

I have pictures in my head (the babyfootprint, the stroller, the nanny in Paris, and the PoP Crew picture where I honestly believe that is BabyTile being held backwards by a woman in a hoodie. But yeah, you would have to search on IHJ because I sure don't have an idea where they're at on here.

I tell you what is telling and that is something that Special first pointed out but I was not paying attention.


(lol - I do that sometimes)


But if you look at OMG threads on Memorial Day weekend, and I think it was on Sunday, I'm not sure. But I was pointing out all the dates (from IHJ pictures) of Jake's Medical Office visits in, hmm...now I forget what year. 2009? 2008? Well, it'll say on the thread. But those visits follow a pattern. And Special knows these things alot better than I am but she knows how they fell into pattern with baby wellness checks. Because by this time, there should have been 2 BT's and so you had one who was already born but needed shots and then you would've had the fetus of BT2.

Sorry for the bad date reference. I'm at work and I'm on lunch so I can't think clearly. We have out of town visitors today and lots of company in our office. It's lunchtime and they had Mr. Goodcents brought in.

prairiegirl said...

And there are just some issues where I'm just not going to put alot into if I don't know you yet. This comes from being burned. I used to be too trusting on here when I first came but unfortunately people like Popcorn have rendered me rather bitter and non-trusting when it comes to newbies. It'll just take me awhile.

Okay, I brought my laptop with me so I could write. I think Pt. 1 of With the Lick of a Stamp will be going up soon. Not tonight because I just got an email that my cousin/aunt/uncle hit Wichita not too long ago and are headed full tilt for here. And I hear that my mom & Osceola Cheese aunt are going full throttle in the kitchen. I wonder if that means homemade tortillas?????

This is mom's baby brother & he is a favorite of all the siblings & very spoiled. lol.

Sooooo...it could mean homemade tortillas, if not tonight, then at some point this week.

There's going to be all kinds of mexicano action going in & out of my mom's house for the next several days. Someone's liable to call Immigration on us.


LOLLLLL!!! snicker

prairiegirl said...

Gosh, how ignorant of me.

Great, great post today, Special.

See, I noticed that either yesterday or the day before his keys had some kind of lime green on the keyring but then another day they didn't.


Great family vehicle. It looks like it's an armored vehicle on the set of Hogan's Heroes or something.

Those things are irritating though when they are behind you in traffic. Alot of people like to get right up on you and intimidate with those grilles. Hopefully, Jakey is not one of those road intimidators. Plus, you can't see around them on the highway for squat, can't see around them when you back out from a parking spot.

But other than that, it looks like a fine vehicle.


LOLLL! Do not get me started on big ol' honkin' SUV's like this thing.

Jake must have got a big old check from Disney. Lets hope his association with them is over. What I hate most about those big old tanks is waiting in line for gas behind one. It takes for ever to full those things up. I cant imagine how much it costs. Sure is weird that Jake has two of them. A lot of athletes drive around in those big old things but I guess most of them would have families.
It sure would a safe drive getting back and forth from NC to NYC in one though. My bet is that Jake stays somewhere on the East coast when Austin is filming OTH. Isnt Jake finally gonna do some work in NYC. I wonder what is next on his agenda?

ted said...

Dear Ted:
You recently stated that Toothy was still beardless, but what about Grey Goose? Is he currently making the rounds with a beard?
—Mandy

Dear Crafty Query:
Yes.

Dear Ted:
Out of Grey Goose, Dashed Dingle-Dream and Barrington Bang-Me, who is the most famous, who is the cutest and who is the most chill?
—TB

Dear Three's Company:
Fame-wise, depends who'd you ask. Probably G2 right now. Otherwise, D3 is the cutest and BBM seems the most chill—though pretty close on all accounts.

Bitch Back

destiny said...

Slaps forhead. I completely forgot about the BT thread on FCC.

Special, now I'm sure there's a logical reason for why Jake drove a black model one day, and a gray one the next. He wouldn't buy two cars. He's a big star, the dealer probably brings him over a new car whenever he gets bored or wants to fool the paps. Oops, they found him anyway. ;)

Audi of DTLA said...

I'm going to make an educated guess and say this gray Audi is a loaner while the black one is in for service (note all the advertising on this gray one plus the absence of a California license plate). Jake has said he still cycles so SUVs are a nice bike transport vehicle.

destiny said...

Well, I know it's not the right number, but D3 makes me think of Donnie Darko. G2 makes me think of Good Girl, and then we have BBM.

Clarification said...

But let's face it an SUV is not a environmentally minded as a Prius..

Not so:

Audi Q7 2010

The biggest changes are under-hood with the "clean diesel" 3.0 liter V6, which is equipped with a system called Adblue, a urea injection system, and an "energy recuperation technology" which engages the alternator to generate electricity while coasting and braking and stores it in the battery to reduce the demand on the engine. The system helps push fuel economy all the way up to 26.4 MPG. Not too bad for a full-sized SUV. It's also clean enough to kill almost all nitrous oxide emissions and meet the Euro 6 emissions requirements through 2010

Audi incorporates the latest "green diesel" technology, and kudos to them. I think in Europe the fuel standards are higher than in the US? I'll have to check.

So while Jake may or may not have his reasons for buying an SUV, at least the environment and fuel economy hasn't taken a backseat. :)

Special K said...

Matching cars, twice. And people don't think they could have watching motorcycles/scooters?

That reminds me of Shemar Moore of Criminal Minds who was on a repeat of Ellen, and they were talking about him having a motorcycle accident. And he said the press said it was a motorcycle because sounded better, but he was hit while he was riding his bicycle. So I can see upgrading a scooter to a motorcycle not being too far fetched.

Cars, motorcycles, the only thing I think to really fear is the matching outfits that Austin picks out when they retire.

Jersey Tom said...

SK hope he does not sleep in those crazy socks he had on coming out of the gym. What a fashion statement that was.

God it is driving me crazy. How long can these two keep their secrets from the public? I got to think these two guys have more help than we know.

thinking of it said...

"How long can these two keep their secrets from the public? I got to think these two guys have more help than we know."

Maybe there is no secret at all and Teddy's fooling his readers.
Sorry not popular idea but realistic cause it's been 5 years now and Ted apart nobody'talking about it.

lurker said...

Matching cars, twice. And people don't think they could have watching motorcycles/scooters?

Matching with whom? Has Austin been spotted in one of these cars? 2:30PM is most likely right that one car is a loaner.

Clarification said...

This is a very environmentally minded car - low emissions are equally, if not more, important than fuel economy for lowering greenhouse gases and global warming. I think I read somewhere where the Jolie-Pitts have one too, and that Brad was involved with Audi in the development of the TDI engine? He's involved with Global Green as well. The more the better! :)

Star Magazine said...

Although Angelina and Brad drive a Range Rover and the family routinely flies private jets and helicopters, they seem to be trying to change their emissions-heavy ways, at least superficially. Pitt may have been influenced by his work with Global Green because when German carmaker Audi asked Brad if he wanted a car and driver for the L.A. premiere of Oceans 13 he asked for a hybrid. Audi does not yet make a hybrid, but Pitt's request is said to have influenced them to create a low-emissions vehicle.




[Brad Pitt] convinced German car company Audi to go green, according to a source! In June, for the LA premiere of… Ocean's Thirteen, Audi offered Brad a car and driver. He requested a hybrid SUV, but the luxury carmaker didn't have one. But now, thanks to Brad, they are making amends. The Audi Q7 V6 3.0 TDI, which features an ultralow-emissions diesel engine, will hit car lots in late 2008.

just saying said...

I love that he has "Lewis' head" on his shirt.

Special K said...

Thanks for more environmental info about the Q7. Can see Jake making that a part of the decision for getting it.

But there is no doubt Jake is driving a very family friendly car. And don't think there is a coincidence that it has the highest safety standards.

The Q7 comes standard with driver and front passenger seat-mounted side thorax airbags, head curtain airbags for all three seating rows, and it has a ultrasonic parking system (with an added rearview camera on Premium Plus and Prestige models) that alerts you if there are objects person etc in the path of the car that could be hit.

I'm sure that Jake sprung for additional rear side airbags for second-row occupants.

The car can also monitor blind spot areas at about 150 feet around the car at speeds over 19 miles per hour. It informs the driver of nearby vehicles using LED lights in the outside side mirror.

This is a super safety wagon on wheels. Perfect choice for a protective papa.

Clarification said...

Well it certainly was a factor in the Brangelina's case - they've got a need for 7 seats! :)

It's nice to see stars do this. A reminder to recycle and change your light bulbs to energy efficient ones, once a year on Earth Day isn't really enough.

Jersey Tom said...

Yeah we do have Ted. What an embarrassment it would be for E if Jake was not Toothy or there was no Toothy. I think E has checked things out. No way Ted goes with this this long if it werent true. He wouldnt want to ruin his reputation big time and he wouldnt do it to Jake.

turbulentmouse said...

Thanks for all the help on BT, after spending way too much of my day reading, clicking and looking at pics and videos I now firmly have my beliefs about it.

Also a whole new theory on the bearding from hell and a complete different perspective on Jake.

I really like this post a lot and yeah you could try to claim it's for bikes but I doubt you could put a bike in the back of that. Also, they make racks to go on the back of your car, you don't need a family friendly one for that.

I don't know a lot of people who buy cars that big unless there's an actual need for it. It's just not practical.

Hmmm said...

Well some people like them. Tom and Gisele have one too, supposedly.

If you guys wanted to boycott him because he's in the closet, if he starts driving a gas guzzler, I'm dropping him faster than a hot potato as well. :)

walk through the fire said...

turbulentmouse, I disagree. I just don't know about anybody who doesn't buy a big, spacey car if money is not a problem. Guys specially, but not only guys. Even where I am, which is a Third World country.

"What an embarrassment it would be for E if Jake was not Toothy or there was no Toothy. I think E has checked things out. No way Ted goes with this this long if it werent true. He wouldnt want to ruin his reputation big time and he wouldnt do it to Jake."

Maybe but Ted isn't a politician, he is a gossip columnist and can say everything he wants, specially behind blind vice, he ruins no reputation and nobody will sue him.
He has already said false things in the past and his old blind stories are quickly forgotten. Here it's different because of TT and GG have fans who frequently question him about the saga!
Look the blind vice supposedly about james franco : diseappered cause nobody cared enough!

wonder said...

"He wouldnt want to ruin his reputation big time and he wouldnt do it to Jake."

In what Ted would ruin Jake reputation in the case TT saga is a liar ? I mean, TT saga isn't insulting right?

Hmmm said...

I don't know about the babies Tile. In the beginning I thought there might be something to it - but as time goes on, IDK. It's true that guys like the SUVs, doesn't necessarily mean they've got a large brood to cart around, although of course it could. Safety features are very important with SUVs generally, especially the backing feature, with all the accidents that can occur with them.

turbulentmouse said...

Really walk through fire?

Maybe it's an area thing. I live in an urban area where most of our parking is parallel. Thus everyone has small cars until they need otherwise because it's easier to find parking spots plus the small size is easier to manipulate in our terrible, terrible traffic.

LA is also urban obvs but they have assistants and valet everywhere I guess, so it's probably different. What about some other young male movie stars? What types of cars do they drive? That's probably a better comparison.

What things has Ted said that are false? Is there proof they were false or are people just assuming they were because someone BI'd to be gay ended up married or something (because that never happens of course ;-) )?

walk through the fire said...

I know the two guys from Supernatural drive that kind of big cars. Both single until a couple of months ago. Only one has pets so...

Also, turbulentmouse, I'm waiting for you in the other forum. Yes, it's a small world. The top secret room is ready. :-)

c what ur up 2 said...

Walk through the fire

Supernatural's Jared and Jensen straight? Nice bait to throw out and see if anyone takes the bite.

turbulentmouse said...

walk through fire- too funny! I was wondering if anyone from that other site was here. :-)

enquirer said...

"What things has Ted said that are false? Is there proof they were false or are people just assuming they were because someone BI'd to be gay ended up married or something (because that never happens of course )?"

If you analyse, Ted follows the a pattern. he likely has a thing for the "couple" of friends. Long time ago and during a while he insinuated Damon and affleck ,the most famous best friend of Holywood, were in reality a gay couple, now he comes with jared and jensen ( close in real life like in fiction) AND between "THE TT saga" with the same line : two friends who are lovers in reality!

for someone who has a objective view it's obvious.

Special K said...

One thing that people keep forgetting about Ted is that he is not an independent gossip columnist, he is a company man, that means that he has go through policies and procedures when he does post, unlike, Michael K, Jared, Perez who can throw up stuff whenever.

Ted has to go through legal before he posts anything to cover E! ass for libel issues. Even his BV items have to go pass legal. There is no way he would create Toothy and there 1) not be a Toothy or 2) lie about who Toothy is, legal wouldn't let that fly.

Since Ted has pretty much eliminated almost everyone in HW for Toothy and today says that Grey is bearding while Toothy is not as the moment again all the sign point to the same people it was since the beginning of the Toothy Tale. Jake and Austin.

Stubborn TB said...

turbulentmouse, I disagree. I just don't know about anybody who doesn't buy a big, spacey car if money is not a problem. Guys specially, but not only guys. Even where I am, which is a Third World country.

Really? All the guys I know are more about speed than size. I've heard a lot of "Whoa from 0 to 100 km/h in ... seconds! Whoa, it can drive up to ... km/h! If I had the money I'd buy this one." but can say I have never heard a guy say "Whoa, this can seat up to 7 people, if I had the money that would be my dream car!"
They end up buying the big family cars, but usually out of necessity when they start having kids.

But maybe that's a German thing since we have different speed limits here.
So let's say you're right: If Jake got it because that's what all the guys want, why did he get it only now? He's had the money to fly around visiting friends, surely he's had the money to rent a SUV?

Likewise, if Jake got the car so he could store his bike in it, why not get it earlier? He's been seen biking a whole lot more a good 3 years ago, but he's always had his other cars then. And as we've seen from pictures of him loading the bike into his old cars, he's never had a problem with them.

Hmmm said...

What Legal sometimes does is let ya know just how far you can go with it before you break the rules too. So there's no guarantee. He certainly could create a Toothy. If it turns out not to be true, people would get over it eventually. I wish we could find out once and for all, instead of endless speculations.

If there is a Toothy and he is a parent, you don't abandon your ideals and standards just because you've got kids. If anything it's even more important, things like ensuring they have a clean and safe world to live in. There are many safe cars - it's how you drive that's the important thing.

Enquirer said...

"Ted has to go through legal before he posts anything to cover E! ass for libel issues. Even his BV items have to go pass legal. There is no way he would create Toothy and there 1) not be a Toothy or 2) lie about who Toothy is, legal wouldn't let that fly."

Maybe but anyone who really want to make analyse effort would see there is a strange pattern between some of his BV and the concerned actors. it weird and the " to go pass legal" doesnt' really convinced me. He can say what he wants since he doesn't give proof.

walk through the fire said...

c what ur up 2, I don't think I'm as smart as you suspect. That wasn't meant to be a bait... All I can say is that I do have a thing for guys with a gay vibe at least.

And turbulentmouse, you can never do enough research. Plus, I really do love Jake. ;-)

just asking said...

"Really? All the guys I know are more about speed than size."

Like specialK said he brought 2 toyotas before, wasn't it already big cars?

can't see why anyone can see or understand this simple reality

IDK said...

He probably has a fair amount of leeway here - especially if there's noone being libeled because TT is a blind item. As long as it remains blind and a mystery, he can pretty much say whatever he wants to.

Special K said...

Legal will not let you make something up that is not true. Why because they represent the interest and the included the FINANCIAL interests of the company.

They don't care who Ted talks about. They care they don't get sued for what he says about them. Legal's job is not to protect Ted as much as is to protect E! and their parent company from being sued.

And why would he make up a BV that doesn't exist and only that one? Because we know that he has confirmed other BV's when they have been revealed after things happen in the subjects lives to reveal themselves.

Again you would make up only one BV and have the rest be real. And then keeping it and running it again and again with new information for 5 years. He doesn't even need Toothy anymore. Looking at the comments you know that he is getting so many more comments from Robsten than anything else lately.

IDK said...

They don't care who Ted talks about. They care they don't get sued for what he says about them. Legal's job is not to protect Ted as much as is to protect E! and their parent company from being sued.

Yes, of course. The very fact that TT is a blind item takes care of this in large part. Whether he'd make TT up entirely, I don't know - but he certainly could embellish on it. He's warned us himself not to take his word as the gospel on it, it's first and foremost entertainment.

enquirer said...

"They care they don't get sued for what he says about them. Legal's job is not to protect Ted as much as is to protect E! and their parent company from being sued."

please, who whould sue them? what actor would sue E because of Ted?

"Because we know that he has confirmed other BV's when they have been revealed after things happen in the subjects lives to reveal themselves"

What "hot" BV, I mean Gay BV did he confirm?


"He doesn't even need Toothy anymore."

You are right but exceptional thing it's the first time The main character of a BV has Fan sites.

show me said...

When has Ted confirmed the identity of any of his blind vices.
not saying he hasn't, but I have not seen them.

I know Ted has not identified any of his blind Vices who suggest the male actor is gay or bi.

turbulentmouse said...

I think pointing out that Robsten is the thing solely getting him page views right now is quite valid.

He could easily drop TT and just go gung ho with all Twilight all the time and his page views wouldn't drop a whole lot. The only people who'd question it would be people from this site and WFT, I don't think anyone else really cares about TT. Not right now anyway.

If he was just using it, he'd drop it for now and then bring it back up once he ran out of stuff other people cared about.

I'm in the minority that honestly believes that HW is about 80% gay or bi so if anything I'm surprised there aren't MORE BIs out there about gay shenanigans. I think when the BIs go away, it's because the relationship ended.

Stubborn TB said...

Ted has actually hinted at Jake being gay and in a fake relationship using his real name instead of Toothy a few times.
Same for Austin.
And he did the whole equating Lance/girlfriend and Matt/girlfriend to Jake/Austin.

And then there's the thing where he wrote a BI about another guy saying that the guy might just be challenging Toothy's throne and used a picture of Jake with the caption "Competition?" without mentioning Jakes name in the actual column.

His legal department would never let him do stuff like this if Ted couldn't back up what he's talking about.

turbulentmouse said...

The problem with the BIs that suggest the person is gay or bi is that very rarely is the item JUST about that. There's usually other details included that may not be revealed even if the actor comes out of the closet.

Like for example the Crescent one about trolling for guys on the internet and then contracting herpes. Even if Crescent came out of the closet, Ted couldn't reveal the BI because of the other details.

But without the details they'd all be boring and just be like oh, this guy is gay and that one and that one. Hey! We have one that likes the vag!and the penis. Oh and another gay! Everyone would stop caring pretty quickly.

Stubborn TB said...

When has Ted confirmed the identity of any of his blind vices.
not saying he hasn't, but I have not seen them.

I know Ted has not identified any of his blind Vices who suggest the male actor is gay or bi.


I don't really follow other BIs, but I seem to remember Ted confirming Lance Bass after he came out. Does anyone else remember that?

Hmmm said...

But he pulled it - and you could not directly link it to anything, and as you say, Jake wasn't mentioned by name. But who knows? I wish we'd find out. I tend to think it'll be milked for all it's worth tho.

Where's M chiming in "Ted must have something big to report if the trolls are all stirred up". The last time she said that, I had to chuckle when Ted's gossip reported about Jake and Kirsten! LOL

waiting said...

no Ted has not confirmed the identity of any person he claims to be gay or bi in his BI's.

"His legal department would never let him do stuff like this if Ted couldn't back up what he's talking about."

He doesn't need to back up what 's talking about, just see what he did before, not the firt time he said a actor is gay with hidden name or not, that makes buzz for a while and the time goes by , the next "hit" boy or "hit" girl push the old away. Ted quietly goes on with jake cause some have an interest but not as much as before.

Survey said...

I couldn't find anything more recent (marketing studies are often kept secret), but a government survey in 2000 found that:

The average SUV customer is male (63.7%), married (76.4%), aged 45 years, in a household with an income of $94,400, and at the head of the household (84%)

SUV Survey

Special K said...

Yes Ted as alluded to Jake and Austin together and being gay more than a few times since 2005.

And Ted pretty much outed them as close as ever in Oct 2007 when he talked about them doing the digital dance while walking in the Village.

Just a reminder this is a Jake and Austin blog, and the overwhelming majority people here believe that they are Toothy and Goose, although they may not believe in all other parts of the Toothy tale. So coming here and trying to convince people that JAke and Austin are not Toothy and Goose is not the place for you. There are places that discount them as Toothy and Goose and that may be the most enjoyable place for you to participate in.

Stubborn TB said...

What are you saying here?
That the legal department of a huge business is going with the "hope that it creates some buzz and the actor/actress doesn't mind us saying s/he's gay because it creates some buzz and won't sue us" method when deciding what their employes can or can't say?
Wow...

Mother Goose said...

This place is so far removed from reality at times it's a little jarring to the sensibilities anyway. Awareness of the events going on in the real world don't seem to exist here, only the mythological Toothy Tile, The Gray Goose and their burgeoning family.

enquirer said...

the conclusion of all : wathever team, jake has fanatic fans.

IDK said...

No, Ted doesn't have to back what he says up. And it's not because of E! Legal advice. Because actors are public figures, they don't have the same protections that ordinary citizens have with stories about them, and they rarely sue gossip mags. A few of them have. Ted would be advised on just how far he could go with a story.

Enquirer said...

I said Ted can make stories about the stars of the moment,that catches people' interest for a while til the next.

Jake threathened to sue when someone revealed where he was intending to stay during the shooting of Nailed.
He also threathened to sue that DrunkenStepfather guy.
Both times the letters from his lawyer were out on the internet within days.

Again, no legal department is going to sign off on a story with "let's hope he's one of those that doesn't sue".

Enquirer said...

"Again, no legal department is going to sign off on a story with "let's hope he's one of those that doesn't sue".


It's completely different of the others affairs you quoted.

What jake would sue Ted?

jake woudn't in any case for severals reasons: TT saga isn't insulting, saying you're gay isn't insulting and above all, jake did BBM. after that he can't sue a gossip blog for gays rumours! it would be nonsense and a contradiction with what he said in interview.

Stubborn TB said...

In that case why do you bother if we say that Jake is in a relationship with Austin and they have kids?

Jake obviously doesn't think it's insulting.

Special K said...

Again if you don't think Jake and Austin are Toothy and Goose there are other places on the internet where you go and would find those who agree with you.

Special K said...

Why is it that inanimate objects that link Jake and Austin together create such trepidation and fear in some people?

Enquirer said...

"In that case why do you bother if we say that Jake is in a relationship with Austin and they have kids?"

That doesn't bother me. Jake and austin as a couple is hightly credible.

The kid ,not so much though. Not at all in fact.

Stubborn TB said...

But Jake doesn't mind Ted (and that implies those that follow his posts as well) saying that he has kids.

So again, why do you care?

Special K said...

Little Jake.

Wonder if his double jointedness comes in handy now with his Pilates or those tandem at-home Pilates? ; )

Enquirer said...

I am saying my opinion.

Pfft! said...

Again, no legal department is going to sign off on a story with "let's hope he's one of those that doesn't sue".

Of course they don't! Public figures have to prove malice in order to sue for slander or libel, and they usually cannot.

Pfft! said...

Jake threathened to sue when someone revealed where he was intending to stay during the shooting of Nailed.

That's because he could have had a stalker where he would be living. That isn't slander or libel. Don't quit your day job, Stubborn.

Trepidation and fear is a stretch, Special. It is the sheer inaneness of today's post that maybe some are shocked by. We don't even know that it is his car, and yet you've imagined an entire story to go along with it. And let's face it, I think not only do the trolls like to stir, the regulars do too.

Special K said...

Oh Jack you're back. Never really leave but just can't stay quiet.

M and M said...

Also, although Jake has quickly threatened to sue over the guy who revealed the address where he was staying during the filming of "Nailed", and Drukenstepfather when he made his restaurant allegations in Montreal, he interestingly never had his people threaten to sue over the Internet posts about "Jake Gyllenhaal is gay and he and his boyfriend are going to have a baby" headlines that splashed all across the Internet in late August, 2007. Hmmm. Wonder why?

M and M said...

Or, in early February, 2009:
Jake Revealed Again Yet No Lawsuit

OK said...

Because two of the scenarios you mention could have been dangerous, the rumors are only gossip. There's nothing to sue over the baby and husband rumors. You'd have to prove some kind of malicious intent in order to win a libel suit as a public figure, and if they are saying he's got kids and a family, where's the harm in it? It's just not worth it most of the time.

Revealing the private address of someone (cease & desist), and being approached in public and written about by someone who could be dangerous are different.

You've got to be kidding me about making that statement.


How about total falseness? What has Tom Cruise sued about? That guy gets his pants in a wad over similar stories with the rags.


Just like some commenters come on here and go on about how "outrageous" the stories about TT, GG and BT. How awful we are for talking about it. We're "spreading lies". We're throwing him "under the bus". We're "making things up". We're "delusional".

Wow, you would think this is an insane asylum or a big slammer of slander.


I can't believe you just opened yourself to that one.

prairiegirl said...

There's a great part in Prince of Persia towards the end of the movie when Dastan confronts his Uncle Nzam on these steps in front of a huge throng of citizens. Dastan tries to point out what Nzam has done that was wrong. And Nzam addresses the townspeople by ridiculing Dastan and trying to discredit him by saying he's "had too much sun" and is in essence, making things up and seeing things. He tries to get the townspeople to laugh at Dastan by trying to make him look foolish and, if you will, delusional.

I pointed this out to Special on the way out of the theatre. And what did that scene remind you of?

What better way to try and discredit someone when you have run out of valid arguments and are reaching for the last frontier to squash any chance for the truth to be heard? You try to discredit their state of mind. It's being done with Ted and it's done to OMG'ers who believe BT exists.

I say cool, go ahead.

prairiegirl said...

Maybe I'm going to bookmark today's post, eh? First one in, last one out. A party over-stayer.

Fun night tonight. Lots of yak and laughs. No tortillas but homemade chocolate cake. Tomorrow night, I go to see my Curley boy. I can't wait to see him. I will be watching him over the July 4 holiday.

Well, it's late & I need to do some other things before I turn in. You know, I was noticing on yesterday's post pictures, the babyfat on ol' Jakey. Lookit his cheeks. Pretty cute.

prairiegirl said...

I meant book-end. Not bookmark.


lol. I'm tired.

M and M said...

In fact, not only does Jake not sue for defamation of character and intent to do him harm and injure him in terms of his chosen occupation and marketability, but his reaction to the boyfriend/baby rumors is so tepid, it's done through a 3rd party mechanism where "a few pals" allegedly talk about how "incensed" he is. Gee, I know that's how any straight actor would react if someone falsified a story about them having a baby with a same sex friend. Of course, if the accusation wasn't malicious and, in fact, just the plain old wholesome truth, maybe the only viable recourse would be to try to fake a bit of outrage through some anonymous buds, and hope that the general public might interpret the muffled response as a denial:

9/17/07 - The National Enquirer September 17, 2007 said...

JAKE GYLLENHAAL HITS THE ROOF OVER LATEST GAY RUMOR

Baby claim last straw for ‘Brokeback’ star

“Brokeback Mountain” star Jake Gyllenhaal is fuming over Internet rumors that he’s gay and having a child with his male lover! The hunky screen star – who played Heath Ledger’s homosexual lover in the controversial Oscar-winning film – says he had enough with the anonymous Web site jabs that he’s more than just buddies with actor Austin Nichols.

“Jake’s been a good sport over gay rumors – up till now,” a source close to the 26-year-old star told The ENQUIRER. He even went as far as spoofing himself when he hosted “Saturday Night Live.” He mugged for a crowd of “gay cowboys” planted in the audience and also did a dead-on impression of Jennifer Holliday singing “And I Am Telling You” dressed in drag! Jake – who’s dated “Spider-Man” beauty Kirsten Dunst and Natalie Portman of “Star Wars” – has always been the first to laugh at the Hollywood gay buzz because he’s straight, the source said. But he stopped laughing when an Aug. 28 story on the celebrity Web site Jossip carried the headline: “Jake Gyllenhaal is gay and having a baby!” That report was picked up from an obscure Web site called I Don’t Like You In That Way.com – which linked him to Nichols, star of the HBO series “John from Cincinnati.” The site quoted an unnamed “former Hollywood publicist” claiming: “Jake Gyllenhaal is planning to come out some time by the end of next month…He and his boyfriend of several years, rumored to be actor Austin Nichols, are expecting a baby in September.” The site ran a photo of longtime pals Jake and Austin sitting together and laughing at a basketball game. “Jake has been dating this guy for years, even before he broke up with Kirsten Dunst,” according to the IDontLikeYouInThatWay.com report.
“Kirsten found out about his bf and confronted him at Chateau Marmont. The confrontation was loud and they broke up right there. News of their breakup followed a few days later. “Jake and his bf are currently expecting a baby through a surrogate. They used a company based in Westwood, Calif. The baby is due in September.”
The story – which pals swear is pure fiction – incensed Jake.
“There were all kinds of rumors that Jake was gay after ‘Brokeback Mountain.’ Apparently, some people don’t realize that he was just acting,” another pal told The ENQUIRER."

Dear Ted:
Out of Grey Goose, Dashed Dingle-Dream and Barrington Bang-Me, who is the most famous, who is the cutest and who is the most chill?
—TB

Dear Three's Company:
Fame-wise, depends who'd you ask. Probably G2 right now. Otherwise, D3 is the cutest and BBM seems the most chill—though pretty close on all accounts.


Destiny - Well, I know it's not the right number, but D3 makes me think of Donnie Darko. G2 makes me think of Good Girl, and then we have BBM.


I think you almost got it, Destiny. What other "D" is irrevocably associated with Jake? That's right: Dunst.

Dunst. Donnie. Darko. (D3)

m said...

Late to the party again as I had a very busy day at work. I see Ted essentially confirmed Austin is Grey Goose by saying yes he is bearding. It was so refreshing to see a simple answer from Ted. Yes. Not his typical way of dealing with things. I think he wanted to make his message totally clear. No clever wordsmithing this time. I am also curious that no one here took ownership of the question. I have not been to WFT2 yet today but if someone there asked I think it would have been noted here. It must have been a believer in Austin/sophia asking in hopes of a no answer but it backfired on them.

Re Ted and Toothy, Baby Tile etc., I don't have time to search it now, but just this week or in the last few days anyway, Ted made a statement that his blind vices are all true. And I have no doubt E attorney's clear everything. Ted's been around a long time. He has a reputation to maintain and pushing a story that is fake would ruin it. He has just as much interest in being sure of what he writes as the corp he works for, if not more.

m said...

I forgot to add great post today. Detective work at its finest. Another piece of the puzzle drops into place.

Outta here said...

Gosh Darnit, this place has turned into the Prairiegirl site again.
Oh no, here comes M. Hope she has some juicy Ted tidbits about Toothy and Gray Goose quench everyones thirst.

Enquirer said...

"How about total falseness? What has Tom Cruise sued about? That guy gets his pants in a wad over similar stories with the rags."

you can't compare Tom cruise with other! the guy is sick, manipulated by a secte and surely homophobe. He is a freak

other don't react that much to the gay rumour or like M said , in a tepid way cause It's funnier than hurting no? You have to handle that in a cool way to avoid hurting some of fan base and because it's the smarter way! Love between two men is great.

I am saying it can be true but the lack of reaction don't prove it's true IMO

m said...

Ted's latest post about Toothy & Grey Goose confirms that he reads this blog. He must have seen my post yesterday, as he dropped a little clue in his latest post to show that he knows we are here.

You keep forgetting that matching cars for Jake and Austin is just your speculation and wishful thinking.

You forgot Jake and Adam, that there was tweet that Jake was at Ladies' Night at Voyeur at the same time. So which is it?

Of course love between two men is great. That is not the point at all. I don't think you quite got what I was saying, though. M & M probably said it better, backed it up better and made it as clear as day. Re-read her comment @ 12:27.

I'm sorry but there is no argument against this one.

Here's a tip. People who don't agree with your opinion, or post info you don't like, have nothing to hide and aren't automatically trolls.

It was a game of cat and mouse tonight as I was everywhere Jake was last night. We spotted him at “Nobu” restaurant last night and let him drive off without flashing him with the camera since he was already in the car. Then, I went to get gas in the car and he was there! I snuck up behind him with the camera just to mess with him and him and Adam Levine (Who was with him) started laughing. I explained to him that not all paps are rude and some (like myself) are nice and respectful. We shook hands and I let him go a second time without being shot. Then I headed to “Las Palmas” nightclub to laugh over the story when all of a sudden Jake shows up there! He sees me from the car and I see him. He gets out and runs towards me and says ” I thought you weren’t going to shoot me”? I replied, ” You ran towards and right in front of me!” I let you go twice tonight Jake…The third time goes up for sale for the magazines.

LLOOOLLL!!11one111! snicker. You kill me sometimes prairiegirl...how lame your platitudes are.

Special K said...

Didn't call you a troll. And if you notice there was a paragraph break between the two thoughts. You read into my question the way you want to read into it, and that is not always tone that it is inferred.

Thanks for the other link.

And before we start up again about Jake and Adam starting something, let's all remember that they have been friends since kindergarten.

Interestingly in the small world of it all, the band listed a shout out to Claire (Austin's old gf) a few years ago.

Pfft said...

I think that Jake could have been "given" these cars to drive for company advertising. I don't know why he would need two SUV's - how many kids is he supposed to have, a dozen? It just keeps growing. Plus, it looks like he's out every night. Latest in the tweets and twitters.

We have two Prius' and both were recalled - our 2006 for floor mats which was somewhat minor, they had to cut the accelerator pedal in case it were to get stuck in the floor mat. Our 2010 for the so-called braking problem. It was a software update to the braking system. We've never had a problem driving either one; it's precautionary in a lot of cases.
Most Prius owners still adore them for their fuel economy and low emissions despite the problems, and remain loyal. Toyota is not unique in this - the safety and recall records of a lot of auto companies are surprising. Ford and *gasp* and even Audi have had this same issue with the sticking accerator leading to "sudden acceleration". And a lot of "enterprising" people have filed false claims with Toyota.

PG, the false statement isn't enough, sometimes it's just not worth it unless the rumors hurt the person in some way. Lots of false statements swirl around famous people and they don't sue for every little thing. DSF actually named Jake in his crazy-sounding posts and approached him in public, accused him of hitting a woman. By name. Ted is protected by having TT as a blind item. Simple. Tabloids are well-known for their ability to get around the legal issues by clever wording or using a reliable, unnamed source.

But who knows? I wish it would all come to light.

MPG said...

People remain loyal because the performance of these cars has far exceeded expectations. For example, both of our Prius' get 50+ miles to the gallon, plus practically zero emissions. Our 2010 gets about 53 mpg. That means we can drive 500 miles and still have gas in the car.

When it's time to buy a new car, I'll get another one. The super gas mileage is great, but the really important thing is the ultra low emmissions that don't contribute more to greehouse gases, that's what's most important to me. I only wish other companies would come out with a car like this. It's great! :)

Ha! said...

So how are we spinning this today? Jake out with notorious horndog Adam Levine. Let me just pop some corn.

Why are some so bitter? said...

Those who come here to constantly criticise every post that Special makes remind me of the looney talking heads on Fox who twist every move that Obama makes in order to advance their own hateful agenda.

Pfft said...

I always praise Special's posts to the highest, never have criticized any of them. This one was a bit silly.
