Someone’s Taking a Little Breather from Rehab

Pictures of Brigitte Nielsen and Boyfriend at Comedy Central Roast of Flava Flav

Okay, if we’re gonna be all over LiLo’s ass for breaking out of rehab every now and then, let’s note that Brigitte Nielsen checked into rehab, like, five minutes before this photo was taken. She stepped out to attend the Comedy Central Roast of Flava Flav with her husband, Mattia Dessi, and I am saddened to admit that I know exactly who this guy is because I watched both The Surreal Life and Flavor of Love and honestly if anyone wants to be my boyfriend the position is open and really needs to be filled because this morning I watched the entire hour-long “Best Of” episode of Girls Next Door and honestly people I can’t go on like this indefinitely.

Sigh.

Flav showed up with his mom, and Snoop Dogg was there too. And Jimmy Kimmel hosted but he gets no pictures on this blog because of that fucking bullshit he pulled with Emily Gould.

Look Who’s Helping!

Paris Hilton at Life Rolls on Benefit in Beverly Hills, Pictures Pics and Photos

Paris Hilton looks soooo happy to be attending the Life Rolls On benefit in Beverly Hills on Saturday. The foundation “exists to be a grassroots resource that provides hope and is an advocate on behalf of young people whose lives have been affected by spinal cord injury.” The “honorary co-chairpersons” for the event were Kelly Slater and Minnie Driver (and, if they were there, WireImage’s photogs missed them), and Molly Sims and Brooke Burns showed up as well.

But I suppose if I’m going to stand up for Lindsay Lohan, I should note that Paris hasn’t totally sucked this week. When she wasn’t too occupied lending her support to Taco Bell, she managed to support this SCI charity and some eco-friendly cars. So, okay, Paris. You get a gold star for this past week. We’ll see how you do in the coming week.

Perfect Couple

Kelly Ripa and Husband Mark Consuelos Host Opening of Art Exhibit

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are the most adorable couple ever. I’ve basically convinced myself that Kelly Ripa is my big sister and that my mother is going to approach me eventually and let me know about the child she put up for adoption when she was 16 who now happens to be Kelly Ripa. I idolize her. Like, you know how old people are about Kathie Lee? I’m like that with Kelly Ripa.

Anyway, she’s adorable and hilarious and gorgeous and famous and a mother and a wife and her life is perfect and she and her husband did some art gallery opening thing this weekend and one day I will have a perfect life just like her.

Looks Like Lindsay Won’t Have Any Movie Roles to Distract Her from Her Sobriety

Production of Lindsay Lohan Film Poor Things Cancelled, Lindsay’s Trip to Vegas Blamed

Well, Lindsay, I hope you’re loving sobriety, because it looks like you’ll have plenty of time to focus on it.

La Lohan’s next slated role, in the Shirley MacLaine-starring Poor Things, was supposed to begin filming when she got out of rehab. Production had been halted to give Ms. Lohan some time to get that whole addictive binge drinking thing under control, but it looks like they needn’t have bothered; production’s been shut down entirely.

According to a Page Six source, “Ms. Lohan’s antics in Las Vegas over the weekend have scared the bond companies and all of the funding has been pulled.”

Seriously? What antics? Look, I’m as harsh a Lohan critic as the next blogger, but there was a shocking dearth of antics in Las Vegas. She showed up at PURE. She posed with some Red Bull. She danced. She was being watched like a hawk out there, and there were no antics. If there were antics, they would have been written about right here on this blog, by yours truly. No such antics occurred.

A Lohan friend retorts that:

She had nothing to do with that movie shutting down. It was a mess to begin with. They randomly fired Channing Tatum for Giovanni Ribisi, and then financing fell through because producers spent money like water. It was only supposed to cost $4 million – Lindsay was being paid nothing for that role.

Lindsay is proving to everyone that she is – and will remain – sober by voluntarily wearing the ankle bracelet and taking drug tests. This is not about her work. It’s about her being able to live her life and go out with her friends without people writing nasty items about her.

I very rarely side with any quoted “friend” of Lindsay, but I agree here. It sounds like the production end is trying to blame Lohan for their own financial missteps. Lindsay’s made nothing but responsible decisions since her Memorial Day accident — she checked into rehab, and stayed for longer than the requisite 28 days required before the press will take it seriously, she’s voluntarily wearing an alcohol detection anklet, she turned herself into the police for her Memorial Day antics, and seems generally to be keeping herself out of trouble. I disagree with the assertion that she shouldn’t have been in Vegas — why does sobriety have to be about hiding out in your room between AA meetings? Why shouldn’t she be able to celebrate turning 21 in the same place everyone else does? If Lindsay had gotten fucked up in Vegas, you would have read about it. She didn’t. I think, if anything, she’s setting a positive example right now, and, for now, she’s got my support.
