Word on the street is that Lindsay’s gotten rid of her #1 enabler: mom/manager Dina Lohan.
OK! magazine — which seems to have the monopoly on all things Lindsay these days — is reporting that the rehabbed starlet is cleaning up her life, starting close to home.
â€œLindsay fired Dina as her manager,â€ an insider revealed. â€œShe is livid about all this press her mom is doing on this NYC apartment that sheâ€™ll never even live in; Dina even gave Access Hollywood a tour of the apartment two nights ago … The two havenâ€™t even spoken in weeks except to fight.â€
As Lindsay struggled with addiction the past few years, her mom has always been on the front lines, denying that Lindsay has a problem. She’s also been rumored to have engaged in drug use with her daughter.
So who will represent Lindsay now?
Hopefully not her dad!
The material mom takes in Celia, an off-Broadway show, on Tuesday night in NYC.
What did Madge think of the show?
“It was okay,” she said. “Not quite pink enough. But thankfully, I come prepared for such a situation.”
It’s called “Keeping up with the Kardashians” and it premieres October 14 on E!
The series is, I suppose, about Kim and her less-attractive sisters. Yup, Kimmy totally swam on the right side of that gene pool.
The premiere party was held Tuesday night at the Pacific Design Center in LA.
Bruce Jenner was there, along with Kim’s BFF Brittny Gastineau, but Brody Jenner was conspicuously absent. In fact, it doesn’t look like he’s really a part of the show. Hmmm. I wonder why that is. I can’t believe a famewhore like Brody would voluntarily turn it down.
For the occasion, Kim decided to take a break from her typical hooker clothes. Instead, she dressed like a hooker … in the 1940s.
Thanks for keeping it fresh, Kimmy!
The show’s star agreed to serve 30 days for driving with a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit of .08 percent, as well as 18 days for violating his probation for a 2004 drunken driving case, according to court records.
The actor was not in the courtroom and his attorney, Blair Berk, entered the plea agreement. A second misdemeanor charge, driving under the influence, was dropped. The charges stemmed from a traffic stop in Los Angeles last month.
As part of the arrangement, Sutherland must also enroll in an 18-month alcohol-education class and attend weekly alcohol-therapy sessions for six months.
He’s doing like 45 days in jail for a fourth DUI?
While early releases have been granted to others, including celebrities, because of jail crowding and other concerns, Sutherland must serve all of his time, according to the plea agreement. The sheriff also was specifically ordered to not release Sutherland to electronic monitoring.
The 40-year-old actor will officially be sentenced Dec. 21, when he must begin serving the 18 days in the county jail. It also is the same day his show begins its winter production break.
Sutherland then will have until July 1, 2008, to serve the remaining 30 days in jail. He will be on probation for five years and faces fines and a driving suspension, according to court documents.
The actor’s plea arrangement ensures that production of “24″ will not be interrupted, Fox officials said in a statement.
“Kiefer made clear to us at the time of his arrest that his first concern was the welfare of those he worked with and that he intended to do whatever was necessary to prevent shutting down the show because of his situation,” the statement said.
“He told us that even if he had to sacrifice more time in custody in order to protect the show and the jobs of those who work with him, he would do so. From what occurred today, it is evident he is a man of his word,” it said.
Okay, it’s nice of him to not want the crew guys on 24 to lose their jobs, but what about the countless lives he puts at risk every time he drives drunk?
QUIT. DRINKING. KEIFER.
This is truly a 24-hour job.
I went to a screening for Elizabeth: The Golden Age this afternoon (which, by the way, co-stars Abbie Cornish, the Australian temptress with whom Ryan Phillippe cheated on Reese Witherspoon, and it pains me to know that movie critic after movie critic will review this film without even mentioning that very salient fact). Anyway, the film was incredible. I loved the first one, and this one was every bit as good. The dresses and hair were amazing. I’ve decided I’m going to be Queen Elizabeth for Halloween.
But that’s not the point.
The point is that, on Tuesday, a judge ordered Britney Spears to be booked for her August hit and run. You know, when she hit a parked car and the paparazzi got the whole thing on tape?
Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Rebecca Omens said the 25-year-old pop star must be fingerprinted and photographed before Oct. 25, when she is required to appear in court. Spears was charged last month with hit and run and driving without a valid license after she allegedly smashed her car into another in a parking lot in August.
Spears was not present for Tuesday’s arraignment. She was represented by attorney Michael Flanagan, who said his client “must go to any L.A. police station for fingerprints and mug shots.”
