The McGowan/Baio Twitter War is Hysterical

D-listers Rose McGowan and Scott Baio are going ballistic on one another via Twitter.   It all started a few weeks ago when McGowan posted a tweet expressing her exhaustion writing "It's a tough week for having a soul" following the Republican convention in Cleveland.  Baio pounced on her with a unproportionately scathing rebuttal. screenshot-twitter.com 2016-08-02 02-51-08D-listers Rose McGowan and Scott Baio are going ballistic on one another via Twitter.   It all started a few weeks ago when McGowan posted a tweet expressing her exhaustion writing "It's a tough week for having a soul" following the Republican convention in Cleveland.  Baio pounced on her with a unproportionately scathing rebuttal. This was harsh, but that doesn't mean McGowan can't give it as good as she gets.  Initially it seemed all McGowan replied was that "I can't get into a twitter fight with you, it hurts my soul".  But when Page Six picked up the story, Baio mad...

I am always amazed when artists find a completely new and genuinely interesting way to capture life.  Even more impressive when it's done in a way that is commercially appealing, which this is quickly proving to be.

Lindsay Lohan Yacht Drinking

I swear I would never normally want a full week of Lohan "news" to be a regular part of my life, but I thought I might as well put a period at the end of this sentence. From the looks of todays pictures, it would seem Lindsay is NOT pregnant. Even the Lohan would take to hiding her alcoholism if she were pregnant. I feel certain about that. At least waiting till night fall.  But assuming she's not drinking for two, I say let the girl frolic on her boat and enjoy her time in the sun. Till something more interesting happens, we're off you case, Li. screenshot-pagesix.com 2016-07-29 13-20-05I swear I would never normally want a full week of Lohan "news" to be a regular part of my life, but I thought I might as well put a period at the end of this sentence.

So Is Lohan Pregnant or Not?

If there's one thing you can count on when it comes to Lindsay Lohan news, it's that Lohan news is not to be counted on. Is she pregnant? Who knows.  But skeezball father of the decade, Michael Lohan, says his daughter is indeed pregnant. The less than reliable source told the Daily Mail that ex fiance Egor needs to get his act together (Pot and kettle?) because pregnant Lindsay is going through a hard time. Meanwhile Lilo cooled her heels,  hanging out on a yacht with Israeli socialite, Hofit Golan. The two dressed in Golden Girls style beach robes while milling around the mini ship.  At one point Lohan is seen smoking, which would be quite concerning if she were actually pregnant.

Possible Simpsons Movie Sequel?

Simpson's screenwriter and producer Al Jean revealed at San Diego Comic-Con a possible follow up to the 2007 movie.  He explained: 'We talk about it, but if we do it, we only want to do it if it's going to be really good.

'We would never do it just to cash in, so if it comes out, it's because we believe in it.'  Jean guessed the chances of a sequel were at 50%, but the fact that they threw it out there has plenty of fans asking "WHY????" - (ok, I was that fan).
