You’ve gotta hand it to Mariah Carey for having the brass balls to bite the hand which one fed her. By that I mean, she’s talking shit about American Idol, a show on which she used to be a “judge”. And while what she’s saying is true, it’s sorta hilarious coming from someone who used to cash checks from the damn thing.
Here’s what she had to say during an interview with Australia’s KIIS-FM (via The Daily Mail):
“I’m sorry, I just think it’s… when I say it’s fake… I mean like you have to make up things to say about people. Half the time the performances are good, you’d just be like, ‘It was good” and you feel like ending it there: ‘You were really good.’”
She was also asked if she’d return for the final episode, since Idol has finally been cancelled. I’m sure you can imagine her answer.
“Hell no! Absolutely not, that was the worst experience of my life.”
It was the worst experience of mine, too, watching this queen lower herself to such bullshit. Why did you have to do it, Mariah? I know the money was good, but you had plenty. I’ll never understand.
Well, it’s happened: Lindsay Lohan is completely free and clear and off probation for the first time in EIGHT YEARS. That’s right! On Thursday, a judge bought the load of crap that Lindsay actually finished her 125 hours of community serviceduring a slapdash week at a daycare center in Brooklyn and signed off on her freedom.
Lilo’s lawyer,Shawn Holley, did the honors in court Thursday, getting the word from Hizzoner that Lindsay’s in the clear.
As we first reported, Lindsay did what we thought was impossible … completing 125 hours of community service in what looked like a probationary marathon … every day, 8 hours a day, for more than 2 weeks.
The stakes were high … if Lindsay didn’t get the job done, she was probably going to jail.
If you’re trying to do the math: Lohan’s probation stemmed from a 2012 reckless driving case where she lied to police, but she’s been on probation since her 2007 run-in with the law for drug possession and DUI that landed her in a Lynwood, Calif. jail for 84 minutes.
With these charges cleared, Lohan can go back to being famous for … you know, acting.
Well, except that it’s doubtful Lindsay will ever have a respectable acting career again. That ship sailed years back and she wasn’t on it, so… yeah. I’m sure she’ll stay in the news for all the trouble she gets in to in future. When she can’t book roles, she’ll get booked in jail. Mark my words.
I know people are still batshit over Mean Girls, even though it came out 9 years ago now, and I can vaguely see why. It was written by Tina Fey, Rachel McAdams is in it, pre-drug-addled Lindsay Lohan is in it, and yeah, it’s pretty hilarious and all that. I mean, I don’t know that it deserves the god-like status it’s given, but I can dig it. Which is why I think you’ll dig this deleted scene that was just released:
I can sorta see why they cut it, to be honest. Though I always welcome Amy “Cool Mom” Poehler in any form.
So, Katy Perry and John Mayer got back together a while ago, for some unknown reason, and it seems like things have been going well. I suppose I’m not all that surprised, since I have ~inside info~ that they only broke up the first time because Katy was working too much (i.e. going on tour) and John basically just wanted to chill in LA so they took a break. Anyhow, they recently went to Disney World, and as you can see in the photo above, they look absolutely thrilled about it.
They took the trip to Disneyland over Memorial Day weekend and apparently looked all super romantic while they were there. But here’s the real question I have for all you LA people: Do you guys just go to Disneyland nonstop just because it’s there, and what the hell? Because seriously, everyone I know who lives out there is CONSTANTLY going, like, with the regularity I go to the greenmarket.
Earlier this year, Bruce Jenner caused a fatal accidentwhile driving in Los Angeles that killed a 69-year-old woman and seriously injured five others. He’s never really taken responsibility for the whole thing, and the stepchildren of the woman who died (who was named Kimberley Howe, for reference) filed a wrongful death lawsuit against him – a lawsuit he wants dropped.
Bruce Jenner has filed court papers to throw out the wrongful death suit filed by the stepchildren of the woman killed in an accident in February on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, California.
In early May, Howe’s two stepchildren, William Howe, 57, and Dana Redmond, 60, filed the lawsuit alleging that the impact of Jenner’s SUV “propelled” her into the other lane.
Jenner, 65, responded to the family’s suit stating they lack standing to assert a wrongful death claim because they were “not financially dependent upon the decedent for the necessities of life.” Jenner claims their family connection to the victim does not give them the right to sue for wrongful death, according to court papers obtained by PEOPLE.
I’m sure some people will bitch and moan and claim that these people are probably after money because of who he is, but not only do I not believe that, but so what if they were? Jenner caused them to lose their stepmother and should pay up because it’s the least he could do.
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.
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.
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.
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.
