Lindsay Lohan Actually Finished Her Community Service

lindsay lohan

Well, I have to say, I really didn’t think Lindsay Lohan was going to make it (and frankly, I still think she probably hasn’t). She had over 100 hours of community service to complete in just over a week and somehow, she did it! I mean, she officially did it, and her lawyer’s ready to prove it at court tomorrow. After that happens, Lindsay’s officially a free woman.

From TMZ:

We just got word from the prosecutor, Chief Deputy Terry White, who confirmed Lindsay put in nearly 8 hours a day for several weeks without a break to get the job done.

Lindsay didn’t have any time to spare. Her lawyer, Shawn Holley, will be in court Thursday with proof that the 125 hours were completed.

So tomorrow marks a new chapter in Lindsay’s life … it will be the first time in nearly 7 years she’s off probation.

Raise you’re hand if you’re pretty sure this is complete and utter bullshit and you don’t for a single second believe that Lindsay Lohan actually did anywhere near 125 hours of community service in about 10 days. Yeah, I thought so.

Of course, celebs love bullshitting people, and she’s rich, white, and famous, so no doubt this’ll be signed off on and she’ll be on her way. Ah well, at least justice tried, even if it didn’t prevail.

Tracy Morgan Got A Massive Payout From Walmart

I’m sure we all remember that Tracy Morgan was in a serious car accident last year — an accident for which he blamed Walmart, since the driver of the semi that hit the car he was traveling in had worked too much overtime and fallen asleep at the wheel. He sued the corporation for a pretty big sum, but it looks like that lawsuit’s not going through, since Walmart paid him a hefty settlement outside of court to make the whole thing go away.

From TMZ:

Tracy’s attorney and Walmart’s attorneys announced the settlement, but said terms of the deal would remain under wraps. Whatever they paid, Tracy’s happy with it … saying, “Walmart did right by me and my family, and for my associates and their families.”

He added, “I am grateful that the case was resolved amicably.”

Walmart also settled with two of the other passengers, Ardie Fuqua and Jeffrey Millea, and settled with the family of James McNair, who died in the crash involving Tracy’s limousine van and the Walmart 18-wheeler.

The accident was a really serious one, one that Tracy had to recover from for months on end (and some reports have suggested that he’ll never be quite the same as he was before), but I guess that goes to show you if you’re a multi-billion dollar corporation and you cough up enough cash, you can make anything go away.

Melissa McCarthy Talks Clothes Plus Size Clothes Shopping

melissa mccarthy

I honestly had no idea that Melissa McCarthy was starting a plus size clothing line, but good for her! People love anything with a celebrity name branded on it, but Melissa’s actually pretty cool, and plus size girls totally need more cute clothing options since, you know they seem to be pretty few and far between, unless you wanna wear a dress that looks like a potato sack or tops that make you look like you’re a 75-year-old woman named Gladys.

So what’s inspired the line? Well, exactly what I just said. Here’s how she explained it to MORE magazine (via People):

“People don’t stop at size 12. I feel like there’s a big thing missing where you can’t dress to your mood above a certain number,” she says. “[Malls] segregate plus-size. It’s an odd thing that you can’t go shopping with your friends because your store is upstairs hidden by the tire section: ‘We’ll put you gals over there because we don’t want to see you and you probably don’t want to be seen.’ ”

At the moment, it seems as though the pressure to get some pounds off have hit Melissa, since she was photographed looking very noticeably thinner. I really hope she did it for herself rather than for Hollywood. Either way, she looks great, just as she always has!

Nicki Minaj & Meek Mill Aren’t Engaged, After All

nicki minaj meek mill

About a month ago, the Internet was going nuts because it seemed Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill had not only made their relationship official, but were ready to make it permanent and get engaged. Nicki had been dropping hints all over social media before posting a picture of what we all thought was an engagement ring. And she’s never spoken about it again, but she’s also never said she’s NOT engaged… but Meek Mill sure set the record straight.

From The Fader:

Most recently, his relationship with Nicki Minaj has been the subject of rigorous speculation, with various outlets reporting that a ring he bought her in Miami was an engagement ring. It wasn’t. “It’s definitely real,” he says of their relationship, “but it ain’t really time to get married yet. We’re still learning each other, feeling each other out.” Not that it matters: the story has been printed. Meek’s grandmother has been calling him about that one (“Whatever she sees on TV, she believes,” he says), and other celebrities, most notably Drake, have started congratulating them publicly, lending credence to the idea.

Right, so basically it was a bullshit stunt to drum up press? Come on, Nicki – you don’t need to stoop that low. What was the point of that?

Jonathan Rhys Meyers Is Sorry For Drinking Vodka In The Street

jonathan rhys meyers

The last we’d heard from Jonathan Rhys Meyers, he was heading back to rehab (and this was in 2009!) for trouble with alcoholism. Since then, all has been quiet when it came to news of him… until last week, when he was pictured walking the streets of London looking fucked up (to say the least) and drinking vodka straight out of the bottle. Uh oh!

However, he broke his silence yesterday on the photos, apologizing via his fiancee Mara Lane’s Instagram page for his relapse and promising to work on getting better:

Here’s the full text of his apology:

Mara and I are thankful for your support and kindness during this time. I apologize for having a minor relapse and hope that people don’t think too badly of me. I stopped drinking immediately and it is no reflection on Damascus Cover as I was not meant to attend Cannes this year and I apologize to fans and colleagues. I am on the mend and thank well wishers and sorry for my disheveled appearance as I was on my way home from a friends and had not changed I feel I made a mistake and feel quite embarrassed but this was just a blip in my recovery otherwise I’m living a healthy life.
Love and blessings.
#Rebel #Angel

She looks miserable and really hurt. It can’t be easy to see someone you love in a state like he was in in those photos, so I hope he works some shit out, and soon.

Kylie Jenner Would Do A TED Talk on Chemtrails, Apparently

kylie jenner

I know this headline probably seemed like a joke, but I promise it’s real. Here’s the scoop: Kylie Jenner‘s Twitter seemed like it had been hacked on Monday when a strange photo was posted. The strangeness lay in the fact that the words in the photo were horribly misspelled, and the topic was not something you’d typically associate with anyone from the Kardashian/Jenner family: chemtrails.

If you’re not sure what chemtrails are, it’s basically a conspiracy theatre in which people think planes are depositing biological weapons in the skies and they’re killing all the bees. It’s nuts as shit, but Kylie is a believer, as you can tell:

WHO IS RESPONCIBLE? That’s what we all want to know.

Fans were all like, “??????” and one sarcastically even suggested that Kylie should do a TED talk on chemtrails, since she feels so passionately. Never one to pick up what the world is putting down, Kylie revealed that she’d love to do just that – and also clarified that she didn’t write the words on the photo she posted, because she actually knows how to spell.

Yikes. What is going ON here?!

B.B. King’s Daughters Believe He Was Poisoned By Assistants

bb king

We didn’t report on B.B. King‘s death earlier this month, but needless to say, the loss of the legendary blues musician at 89 years old was incredibly sad. But now it might be even sadder than we initially thought, because while 89 is a completely reasonable age for someone to pass from natural causes, King’s daughters don’t believe that’s what happened at all, In fact, they believe their father was poisoned by his close aides.

From BBC News:

Karen Williams and Patty King said the musician was given “foreign substances to induce his premature death” by his business manager Laverne Toney.

Lawyers for King’s estate said the claims are unfounded and disrespectful.

Nevada’s Clark County Coroner said it would investigate with the Las Vegas Police Department’s homicide division.

“At this point, we don’t have evidence that these allegations of foul play will be substantiated,” Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg said.

“However, we are taking them very seriously and will be conducting a thorough investigation.

“We are co-ordinating our investigative efforts with the homicide division of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. I expect the investigation will take a minimum of six to eight weeks.”

However a statement from the Las Vegas Police Department said: “Until such time as the Clark County Coroner determines Mr King’s death to be from other than natural causes, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is not moving forward with any investigation.”

One of the assistants – who just so happens to be the executor of B.B.’s will – calls these claims “ridiculous”, but his family insists that these aides had sequestered B.B. from them in the later years of his life.

It’s so sad, either way, but if indeed there was something criminal here, these people need to be brought to justice.
