Mary-Kate Olsen was rushed to the ER with a kidney infection on Monday.

She’s recovering well and should be released in the next couple of days.

Don’t you get a kidney infection when you let a UTI go untreated? And don’t you usually get a UTI from too much unprotected sex? Or am I making this up? Commenters, weigh in!

It’s About Time: Red Hot Chili Peppers Sue Showtime Over “Californication”

Anthony Kiedis and Red Hot Chili Peppers Sue Showtime over Californication

I was wondering how long it would take for this to happen.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers have sued Showtime, whose series Californication has the same name as the band’s 1999 album.

The lawsuit alleges unfair competition, dilution of the value of the name and unjust enrichment, claiming the title is “inherently distinctive, famous … and immediately associated in the mind of the consumer” with the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

“Californication is the signature CD, video and song of the band’s career, and for some TV show to come along and steal our identity is not right,” the band’s lead singer, Anthony Kiedis, said in a statement.

The show features a character named “Dani California,” which is also the title of a Red Hot Chili Peppers song released in 2006, the lawsuit noted.

Look Who’s Helping!

Michael Lohan Feeds the Homeless

Michael Lohan helps feed the homeless to help kick off 2007 Thanksgiving Week in New York.

Why the hell were photographers there?

Fame. Whore.

Lindsay is in NYC, too, to spend time with her family for the holiday. She’s still staying out of the spotlight, though. Wish we could say the same about her father.

GASP! She’s NOT THAT INNOCENT! Britney’s Secret Sex Past!

OMG.

Can you guys believe it?

Britney Spears may have lied when she said, at age 16, that she was saving herself for marriage!

Us Weekly is reporting that Britney lost her virginity at age 14, to high-school sweetie Reg Jones, and that she and Justin Timberlake were banging from the start.

I’m shocked. Shocked and appalled.

At least now we can all sleep soundly, knowing that Britney today is exactly who she seems to be.
