8Oh, So NOW People Magazine Decides to Make a Big Deal Over Lindsay Lohan’s Drinking

After I made a huge fuss last night about how People magazine reported Lindsay Lohan’s wagon-tumbling adventures without even batting an eyelash, the mainstream mag decided, today, that they probably oughtta make a fuss themselves.

In an article posted early this afternoon, People writers say:

Is Lindsay Lohan back to her hard-partying ways? The actress – who completed a stint in Cirque Lodge rehab last September – is raising eyebrows again after she was spotted on Saturday drinking Grey Goose and Red Bull cocktails at a party deejayed by pal Samantha Ronson. Lohan, 21, smoked cigarettes, chatted with friends and hit the dance floor at Hawaiian Tropic Zone in New York as Ronson spun tunes until 4 a.m.

Lohan’s rep was not immediately available for comment.

So, okay, that’s something, at least.

34Can We Please Talk About Lisa Loeb’s Glasses?


I’m really torn on this issue, and I want to hear opinions from you guys.

Lisa Loeb is wearing the same dorky glasses she wore at the beginning of her career.

On one hand, in a world where celebrities seem obsessed with constantly reinventing themselves, it’s kind of refreshing to see someone sticking to the same schtick for 15 years.

On the other hand, Jesus fucking Christ, is anyone else soooo sick of those glasses?

The rap superstar has officially called it quits with his fiancee, fashion designer Alexis Phifer.

Sources close to Kanye say that he was the one who broke it off, saying “I just don’t think it is going to work out anymore.” He even asked for his ring back! Ouch!

The pair have been dating on and off since 2002. They got engaged in the fall of 2006.

Kendra Wilkinson Playboy Olive Garden, Pictures, Photos


This is the coolest thing ever! And also kind of the weirdest thing ever.

Playboy has launched a nationwide search for the hottest women who work for my FAVORITE restaurant!!!! They’re going to do a “Girls of Olive Garden” pictorial!!!

Hugh Hefner and Kendra Wilkinson will handpick the winners.

Reps from Olive Garden say they have no involvement in this — they won’t encourage their servers to get naked, but they won’t fire them for it, either.

Man, at first I was like, “Olive Garden? Why Olive Garden?” And then I remembered that Kendra, just like me, truly appreciates the finer things in life, and Olive Garden is her favorite restaurant, too. Something tells me this was all Kendra’s idea. You’re such a rock star, Kendra!!!

When these pictures come out, I assure you they will be on this website, lawyers or not. I have never been so excited for a Playboy spread in my life!!!

18I ::Heart:: Danica Patrick

Danica Patrick Wins Indy Japan 300, Pictures, Photos

On Sunday, the 26-year-old hottie became the first woman to win an IndyCar race, taking home the big prize for the Indy Japan 300.

“It’s a long time coming. Finally,” she said. “It was a fuel strategy race, but my team called it perfectly for me. I knew I was on the same strategy as Helio [Castroneves] and when I passed him for the lead, I couldn’t believe it. This is fabulous.”

And Helio’s response?

“With five laps to go, I was saving fuel. When Danica passed me, I realized she was the leader. She did a great job, passed me fair and square and that shows you how competitive our series is.”

I love that she thanks her team almost immediately. I love that she uses the term “fabulous.” I love that she’s wearing cute earrings and bad-ass shades in this picture. I love that she’s not afraid to embrace her femininity while competing in a hugely male-dominated, male-oriented sport. She’s so kick-ass in so many ways. I hope she sees many more wins in the future.

23Prince William Lands Military Aircraft at Kate Middleton’s Home


You know, when you’re dating a Prince, you expect the royal treatment.

Kate Middleton got it this weekend, when Prince William landed a $16M military Chinook helicopter in her family’s lawn, sparking plenty of controversy in Britain. And last week, Wills flew brother Harry to their cousins bachelor party in a different Chinook. (The British media calls a bachelor party a “stag do,” and I’m totally going to use that in the future.)

Says a member of the British military: “At a time when the Armed Forces are short of money and there is a lack of kit in Afghanistan and Iraq this is a total waste of money. He uses a Chinook to land in his girlfriend’s garden then travels to a stag party in one. Where will it end?”

And, more importantly, what the hell is “kit”? I totally don’t speak British.

Says a different military force: “This is an absolute waste of training hours on the Chinook helicopter that the military are hard-pressed to afford. No other pilot at Prince William’s stage of training would be allowed anywhere near the left-hand seat of a Chinook. It’s like a learner driver being given the keys to a Formula One car just because his father owns the racing team.”

Eh, whatever. He’s a prince. If he wants to land a military aircraft on his girlfriend’s lawn, let him. It’s the closest thing we have these days to a knight on a white horse. I want to live my fairy tale through Kate Middleton, dammit!
