The camera did not love Miss Lohan at yesterday’s Nylon Magazine party at Tenjeune in NYC, which she hosted. The typically camera-lovin’ Linds looks awful in almost all these shots. What on earth could distract Lindsay Lohan from posing on the red carpet? Perhaps she was grumpy because her current sorta-boyfriend, British model Callum Best, was there, as well as her rumored lesbian love, DJ Samantha Ronson. Awwwwwwwwkward.

Gary Marshall is a hack director. He’s cashed in on directing Pretty Woman for the last 17 years. Or maybe those fresh episodes of Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley he wrote back in the 70′s somehow guaranteed him a full career. And his new movie, Georgia Rule, is seriously screwed up – and it’s most likely due to the tone he took. They should have called it “Molestation Hilarity” because that’s the vibe he clearly was shooting for.
Here’s how Marshall framed the incident:
“Once somebody walks on my set, it’s my problem, but we can’t go chasing them, this film is low-budget. We can’t lose days. … Tough love is a part of this business â€“ she missed a day on the second week of shooting.”
On the surface this seems to be a fairly professional business interaction. Except for one tiny detail. It was only the second week of shooting. She couldn’t have missed multiple days or that would have been mentioned. And was she not available via cell phone to be scolded? Could he not have gone to her trailer the next day for clarification on what was up? The letter mentions she was “late” a few times too. How late? My guess is a few minutes or I’m sure they would have mentioned “hours.”
“Jim wrote the memo, and she came the next day and we were fine,” Marshall said.
What a jerk-off. I’m the last one to defend Lohan, and she legitimately missed a day of work, but the furor this caused was nothing more than a publicity stunt for a movie without an audience. Lindsay got sacrificed on the altar of some old fogey needing a hit movie. And now, by bringing this up again, you are trying another PR stunt. You leaked the letter and you’ve kept the hype going. You’ve made a mockery of your “art.” Most directors would say something to the effect of “Hey, the movie is great and I’m very protective of my actors so I don’t want to talk about it further. What happened is a private manner between colleagues.” But Gary couldn’t do that, could he?
Yes, Lindsay should tone down the partying and be at work on time, every time. But the true way to handle this was in person. And if it happened again, then you start with the escalation. The film was financed by goddamn Universal Pictures, I’m sure they were able to cover a day of extra shooting for Gary.
Egh. I hate you Marshall, and when your film makes $32 dollars at the box office I will laugh at you. I may even point my finger in a derisive manner.

This movie Georgia Rule comes out Friday and it’s very odd. It will make around $40 at the box office because the masses are still lining up to see Spidey but I thought I’d mention it anyway (as sort of a community service).
It’s sort of about molestation. Yet it tries to be funny most of the time. Exactly.
It is from the guy who directed Pretty Woman, where it was completely glossed over that Julia Roberts sold her body for money, so I guess I get the ambition. They thought they could get away with this strangeness.
But they didn’t. Lohan is sometimes good, sometimes bad, and her stardom is still way more based on her lady business than it his her skills.
Wonder how long that can last?
Oh, one more thing, despite how the picture looks Jane Fonda’s floating head isn’t a focal point of the film.

Sometimes it’s just fun to do a shitload of cocaine after you get out of rehab, you know?
News of the World got their grubby little hands on footage of La Lohan snorting cocaine with two friends in the bathroom of Teddy’s. The “friend” reported that Lindsay could rock 20 lines in a single night. Hey, if you respect nothing else about Lindsay Lohan, you gotta respect that. I mean, you know that’s some solid shit she’s doing, too. Twenty lines of Lohan coke could take down a small horse.
The video is from March 8, twenty days after Lohan was released from Wonderland rehab in Los Angeles.
Says the friend, “That night I saw her do more than 20 big lines of cocaine. She was still up doing drugs at 11am even though she had started about 8pm the night before.”
She continues, “I have lost count of the number of times I have watched as she stripped naked in front of everyone. Then she loves to check herself out in the mirror as she parades around with her boobs hanging out. One night we had gone back to her place and, as always, as soon as she walked through the door she stripped down to her thong, bent down and snorted cocaine off her coffee table and then off her toilet seat.”
Lindsay also bragged about sleeping with a who’s who of Hollywood nobodies, including James Blunt, Benicio del Toro (really? ew.), Jude Law, Calum Best, Joaquin Phoenix, Jared Leto and James Franco.
This friend also confirms that Lindsay’s famous water bottle is typically filled with vodka and soda.
“That’s why I’m showing this video,” she says. “So the world can know what Lindsay has been doing and she can’t lie about it to herself or anyone else.”
Awww. What a great friend. I, too, have found that some of the truest friendships in my life have been formed with the people who filmed me doing cocaine. They were consistently looking out for my best interests. You’re a lucky girl, Lindsay Lohan.

Our darling Brit did the third (and supposedly last) of her comeback mini-shows at the West Hollywood House of Blues last night. Even though the show was held well within the thirty-mile zone, the only high-profile celeb who made an appearance was Miss Lindsay Lohan, who was probably just there to collect on that eight-ball she sold her last week. But who knows — maybe they were going to an AA meeting together later. And of course by “an AA meeting” I mean “the Chateau Marmont. To do cocaine.” Britney’s set was 11 minutes long — her shortest yet — and the only words she spoke were “Thank you, L.A.”
Britney left the venue in her now-ubiquitous pink bra and a denim skirt, on which someone had penned her name and the word “evil.” The Evil B. I like the sound of that.
Man, it’s a slow news day. I’m just sticking around to find out if Paris Hilton’s going to jail. And I’m doing a lot of praying in between. Please, God?
