Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Word on the Street

Is that Dina Lohan was asked to leave the after-party for the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 premiere because she was so completely trashed.

Like mother like daughter!

Meanwhile, Lindsay and SamRo stayed up until 4 am partying at an NYC gay bar. However, no reports of any incidents with Lindsay, so it’s possible she actually stayed sober that whole time. Samantha is her new drug!

Everything’s Coming Up Shia LaBeouf

You know, the only thing that sucks in Hollywood more than getting a DUI is getting a DUI during a slow news week. And, in that regard, Shia LaBeouf just hit the jackpot of suck. It’s been week after week after week of non-stories and baby births around here, and, with a genuine scandal to latch on to, it’s just gonna be all Shia all the time until something else happens (the Miley Cyrus cocaine video? Please please?). Although Shia himself has yet to issue a statement regarding Sunday’s incident, Mothers Against Drunk Driving has issued their own open request to Shia, asking that he voluntarily install ignition interlock devices on all his vehicles. Heh. Something tells me this isn’t going to happen.

An Open Request to Shia LaBeouf
from Mothers Against Drunk Driving

To protect the safety of his family and the citizens of his community, Mothers Against Drunk Driving calls on Shia LaBeouf to voluntarily install ignition interlock devices on all vehicles registered in his name, in addition to completing the official punishment/sanctions that may be levied in the event of his conviction for DUI.

An ignition interlock is a breath test device linked to a vehicle’s ignition system and is normally mandated to convicted drunk drivers as a condition of probation. We hope Mr. LaBeouf will voluntarily use the opportunity of his DUI arrest to educate his fans – and the country – about this life-saving device by installing the device on his vehicles.

Ignition interlocks are proven effective tool in the fight to eliminate drunk driving and save lives.

· Ignition interlocks reduce drunk driving offenses by an average of 65 percent.

· Ignition interlocks have the potential to save more than 4,000 lives now taken in repeat drunk driving crashes annually.

· A majority of American citizens (65 percent) support the use of ignition interlocks as a sanction for first-time convicted drunk drivers.

· A full 85 percent support ignition interlocks for repeat offenders.

States across the nation are turning to the alcohol ignition interlock to help prevent drunk driving tragedies. Just this year, four states – Washington, Nebraska, Alaska and Colorado – expanded the use of alcohol ignition interlocks to include all convicted drunk drivers. MADD lobbied the California state legislature this year to pass similar legislation and plans to make the expanded use of interlocks in California its top priority next year.

MADD believes the tools are now at hand to eliminate drunk driving from the United States. The Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving, launched in November 2006, has four elements: intensive, high-visibility law enforcement, full implementation of alcohol ignition interlocks for all convicted drunk drivers, development of advanced vehicle technologies to prevent drunk driving and grassroots support led by MADD and its 400+ affiliates, to make the elimination of drunk driving a reality.

Gossip Girl Bromance Still Going Strong

There have been reports for a long time that Gossip Girl co-stars (and roommates!) Ed Westwick and Chace Crawford are more than just friends, and now comes another report to throw on the fire:

“Gossip Girl” co-stars, roommates and friends Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick are still thisclose. The twosome showed up at a recent show by Brit popsters The Ting Tings, and a spy says “they were never more than a foot apart. It was freaky. If one moved two feet to the left, so did the other.” The duo also chose to ignore the hordes of flirty girls trying to get their attention, says our spy: “They were only interested in each other.”

You know, guy-on-guy hook-ups don’t normally do much for me, but I actually think I’d be interested in this sex tape. I think it might be way hot. Come to think of it, how come gay male sex tapes never leak? Everything we ever get is hetero or girl-on-girl. Why is that??? Did it happen before and I just missed it? I can’t think of a single one.

I Always Miss the Good Earthquakes!

I swear, in the five years I lived in LA, I always managed to be out of town during any earthquake. I’ve never been in an earthquake and I always wanted to! I know that’s weird, but it’s true.

So now that I’ve left LA and moved to Seattle mere months ago, LA gets the biggest quake it’s seen in a long time — a 5.8 on the Richter scale.

And I’m waaaaay bitter.

I am so weird.

Anyway, no reports of injuries or serious structural damage, thank goodness! Glad to hear everyone is okay! Sad to hear I missed the fun!

Kate & Wills: Still in Love!

Prince William has spent the last month fighting drug trafficking on on a Royal Navy warship, and is now ready for some R&R with the love of his life, Kate Middleton.

When Wills’ tour on the HMS Iron Duke concludes on Friday, he will fly to the Caribbean, to spend two weeks with Kate. This month represents the longest the two have been apart during their entire courtship, which began when they were in college.

During his stint on the HMS Iron Duke, Wills has proven quite the crimefighter.

The Prince, whose military title on board the ship is Sub lieutenant Wales, has had an active time in the last month.

In his first week he was involved in an operation to capture a speed boat containing £20 million worth of smuggled heroin.

And last week he helped spot another vessel suspected of drug-running while aboard a Lynx helicopter. When the boat failed to stop, marines opened fire on it, shooting out the engine.

He’s a prince AND a hero!

I’m so jealous of Kate.

Quotables

“I think I’ve been portrayed well on the show. But it’s based on Lauren’s life, so some of the things in my life, like my friends, aren’t on the show: my personal life with my true friends and my family, me going to acting classes, shooting a movie. They filmed a little, but they can’t air everything … I don’t feel like they show me on “The Hills” sticking up for myself. They edit that out. I’m generally happy with how I look when it comes out. In real life, though, I’m bubbly and fun and talkative and when you see me on the show I’m always sitting there and sad. But I’m fine with it because it’s not my show. I’m there because of Lauren.”

Audrina Patridge, being surprisingly reasonable, in a new interview with the LA Times.

I like that at least Audrina realizes and admits that she’s where she is because of Lauren Conrad. It makes me crazy when Heidi and Spencer talk shit about LC, and it’s like: Listen, assholes, you wouldn’t be able to cut the line at a bar in fucking Burbank if it weren’t for Lauren Conrad, let alone be hosting nights at Tao and launching clothing lines. Shut. The fuck. Up.

Is This Some Kind of Joke?

This is apparently the video for Ali Lohan’s new single, “All the Way Around.”

Uhhh … it’s just clips from Living Lohan. Like, clips that are in no way relevant to the song. I hope this is, like, the preliminary video that some high-school interns at E! threw together, and there’s a real video coming later. Because otherwise they’re just not trying. Are all the family’s resources re-focused on Lindsay now that it looks like she might not die soon? Ali had that brief window of her mother’s attention while her sister was in rehab for like two years straight, but now that Lindsay’s coming back, maybe everyone in the family is just forgetting about Ali. I’m having trouble thinking up any other explanation for this crapfest.
