What a week it’s been. We came off of She Who Must Not Be Named and all other kinds of hot mess outfits at the VMAs and ended with Daniel Radcliffe doing this (above). A lot going on. Here are the best, worst, and WTF celebrity looks of the week — end of August.

Lindsay “300 Strikes And You’re Out” Lohan has been doing pretty well since she got out of rehab for the millionth time. She got paid $2 million for an interview with Oprah (that no one watched) as well as a “docuseries.” She hosted an episode of Chelsea Lately and shot a guest appearance on the TV show Eastbound & Down. She got good reviews — the only good reviews — for the crapfest known as The Canyons. There’s even rumors that she’ll host the season premiere of Saturday Night Live.
So I guess since everything’s coming up Lohan, Lohan’s striking while the iron is hot by trying to get Meryl Streep‘s attention. Lohan and Ms. Streep actually starred in a film together way back in 2006, A Prairie Home Companion. That’s 7 years ago in normal people time, fourteen in Lohan years. Yesterday Lohan posted their 2006 photoshoot for Entertainment Weekly on her Instagram with #tbt. TBT stands for “throwback Thursday.” The context makes sense but still, girl. Kinda desperate.
My favorite comment is “lol wut”.
Lindsay Lohan sat down with Oprah and told her she checked into rehab for the very first time because she used Ambien and it scared her (to which Oprah gave the most skeptical look ever and tried get more of an explanation and gave up) and also that she did cocaine “Ten to fifteen times” to which everyone torrenting this mess laughed mightily. I guess a lot of people at this point are fed up with Lohan, because the interview was one of Oprah’s lowest rated interviews, ever. Some stats from The Hollywood Reporter via The Superficial:
The one-hour OWN broadcast averaged 892,000 viewers to the 9 p.m. premiere telecast. The 10 p.m. encore averaged 504,000 viewers.
Now let’s compare that to
Winfrey’s Oprah’s Next Chapter sit-down with Whitney Houston’s family in March 2012 is still OWN’s most-watched effort for the network, drawing 3.5 million viewers. The first part of disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong’s January interview with Winfrey is close behind with a strong 3.2 million. Third is Rihanna’s interview with the talk show maven in August 2012, which averaged 2.5 million.
Let’s hope the “docu-series” they’re doing together gets better ratings. Or not, screw them.
Lindsay Lohan‘s big Oprah interview aired last night and the lies flowed like chocolate out of Wonka’s factory. My favorite part was when she said (via Gossip Cop) she’s done cocaine “10 to 15 times.”
Yes, that’s a lot closer to the truth than what she told Piers Morgan (“only 5 times.“) But come on now. Let’s do some basic math. Lindsay Lohan is 27. Let’s say she didn’t start doing drugs until she was 20, which is way generous. That means in 7 years she’s only done cocaine 15 times, tops? Maybe 15 times in 1 week. Come on, Lohan.
She also claimed that she “kind of wanted” to go to jail (Gossip Cop).
Lindsay Lohan must have been REALLY bored in rehab, because she threw an unofficial Lindsay Lohan film festival. Allegedly, she watched some of her films and brought in an audience. An unwilling one. From Earsucker:
During her 60 day stay at the Cliffside Rehab Center in Malibu, not only did Lindsay Lohan watch all of her own movies for entertainment, she made the other patients watch alongside her.
A source revealed, “There was more than once when Lindsay would rent or buy a movie on iTunes that she’d starred in. She basically forced me to watch that crappy movie ‘I Know Who Killed Me’ with her, the one where she plays a stripper.”
The source added, “She’s such an attention seeker that she didn’t think it was weird at all to watch her own movies. Everyone else thought it was really embarrassing of her to do that! But whatever. It was like she was trying to relive a time when she was actually a working actress.”
Oh. Now I feel sad. I picture her as Martin Landau as Bela Lugosi in Ed Wood in full vampire cape (or in her case, I guess she would be wearing her stripper outfit) watching her scenes over and over, saying her lines out loud in unison with the film, eyebrow cocked.
Lindsay Lohan, a fresh eight days out of rehab, was reported to have partied with rock band The Wanted all Wednesday night and didn’t leave until Thursday morning. I find this very interesting. Lohan and Max George, singer of the band, used to date, pretty much right up until her court-ordered rehab. And I have an entire Lohan is pregnant with George’s kid theory.
Here’s what Page Six reported on Lindsay’s late night antics.
Lindsay Lohan is back partying again just over a week after leaving rehab. The actress partied all night with the Wanted’s Max George in Los Angeles before being helped out of the bash by security at 7 a.m. yesterday.
[...] One source said: “The party went on all night long and was so loud that guests were complaining. Lindsay was there with Max George. The Wanted have been staying at the Mondrian for days, and Lindsay, who briefly dated Max a while back, was partying with the band. She and her sister Ali were spotted waiting in the hotel lobby for the band.
“There were so many complaints about the noise that hotel staff had to shut the party down and Lindsay had to be taken out of there by security at 7 a.m. She was with her sister, and people who saw Lindsay when she left the hotel said she looked a total mess. She looked so beat up.”
A rep for Lohan told us last night of that account, “I highly doubt this is true.” [LOL, you have ONE job, rep, ONE JOB!]
The troubled actress, who’s reportedly gone into rehab at least six times in as many years, has insisted that she’s remained sober since her latest stint in treatment.
A source close to the star said, “She is friends with Max and did visit him, but everything else is untrue. She did not drink, she was in bed by midnight, and she showed up on time for therapy this (Thursday) morning. She has a sober coach.”
A Lohan representative said, “Although Lindsay did visit her good friend Max, this is otherwise a completely false story.”
First of all, what the hell. She was just in NYC and wouldn’t go to the Canyons’ LA premiere because she was afraid she would be “tempted” by being in LA. But now, suddenly, for whatever reason, she just HAS to be with The Wanted on a Wednesday night?
My pregnancy rumors sense is tingling.
There’s a blind item out about someone being secretly pregnant and I would bet everything I own that it’s Lindsay Lohan. As with blind items, we may never find out the truth. Okay, maybe not everything I own, but half. I need to imagine no possessions. I wonder if I can.
This item, from Blind Gossip, is about a “young, multi-talented female star” (shh stop laughing, I still think it’s Lohan) who has never been “fat” but when she gains weight, in it’s in her face and neck. That checks out for Lohan.
They note she’s gained weight but only in her lower abdomen. Recent photos of Lohan in NYC show a little tummy, so check that too. (Yes, it could be a burrito, not a baby. I am familiar with burrito tummy.)
The blind says that, “No one will question why she is only drinking water.” Lohan just got out of rehab, so no one would question that. Check. For the last clue, the blind suggests she was sleeping with a musician “approximately three months ago.” In late May, Lohan and The Wanted singer Max George ended their fling, right before her three month stint in rehab. Check.
And one more thing: there was this seemingly ridiculous story about Lindsay Lohan really wanting a baby.
The full blind is under the cut. What do you think?
