Lindsay’s SCRAM Bracelet Goes Off, Avoids Jail Again


Another Houdini like maneuver! It all started when a report that Lindsay Lohan‘s SCRAM bracelet had registered an alcohol report surfaced. Apparently the monitoring people got the report sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning, after Lindsay attended the MTV Movie Awards. Lindsay denied the report tweeting, “My scram wasn’t set off-Its physically impossible considering I’ve nothing for it to go off-All of these false resports are absolutely wrong.”

So what happened? SCRAM gets notified by a data download, and officials say it could either be a positive alcohol reading, a cut strap, or that L.L didn’t get home at the prescribed time. Either way , on Tuesday, L.A  Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel issued a bench warrant, claiming Lindz, was “in violation for conditions on bail” because the bracelet went off. Soon after, Lohan’s bondsman delivered the $20,000 bail – that’s 10% of the $200,000 bail –  preventing her from spending any immediate time behind bars. Lohan is now due in court on July 6.

Gary Coleman’s Final Wishes


There’s been a lot of dispute since Gary Coleman passed away. Specifically between his ex-wife Shannon Price and his parents about who’ll get his estate.  In the wake of all this upheaval, news about his final wishes have surfaced.

Price say’s that he wished to be cremated and that he wanted his ashes to be scattered around train tracks. She say’s he asked, “To spread some of them around some train tracks because trains were his hobby and he loved that very much. And I think that he would really appreciate that I did that for him.”

The couple reportedly used to feud over his train hobby. Jordan Prentince, a co-star on his last movie Midgets vs. Mascots said,  “He once bought her a train set as a gift. She was furious.”

Price also adds that she has a legal document stating that “he wanted me to have everything.” Elaborating further she said, “His financial problems have always been bad with people stealing from him. Gary hasn’t been able to take care of finances very well because no one taught him. [But] we survived through everything. I had some family help us. My family’s been very supportive [of us].” We think he should be cremated in peace without any more campaigning.

Jennifer Aniston Gets Raunchy For A New Role


Jennifer Aniston is getting kinky in her new movie Horrible Bosses (yay?). Forget romantic comedies…  this is a much edgier role in a script that’s of the comic-murder persuasion. She’s playing – get this – a sex-obsessed dentist who likes to get hardcore raunchy.

Her character will apparently admit she’s into kinky sex, compliment a dude on his ‘package’ and will be shown breaking a nail while getting herself off! They’ve also signed on some heavy hitters for the flick including Colin FarrellJamie Foxx and Jason Bateman. The Situation – Jennifer Aniston‘s #1 fan – will probably going to be first in line for a ticket. He just admitted he has the hots for her!

Prince Of Persia Star Gemma Arterton Marries


Some people are lucky enough to play princesses but also get fairy tale endings in real life. Actress Gemma Arterton has got with Daniel Craig and Jake Gyllenhaal on screen in the Bond film Quantum of Solace and Prince of Persia respectively. And she just married her Italian fiance Stefano Catelli in a dreamy little Spanish village called Zuheros in Andalucia.

She arrived at the hill-top wedding in a strapless, flowing cream gown, with a long veil, carrying a bouquet of trailing white roses. Sigh. And the newly-married couple drove off in a vintage open-top car. Double sigh.

Arterton had recently said, “It was absolutely instant. I remember going home the night after I met him and writing in my diary that I’d met the man I’m going to marry. I gave that diary entry to him for his birthday two weeks later. But it didn’t freak him out, because he was thinking the same thing. I just really want to spend the rest of my life with him. He’s an amazing man.”

The Bond girl is quite vociferous in general. She revealed how hurt she had been about criticism that she had put on weight saying, “I went to a designer the other day – who will remain nameless – and he said to me: ‘I’m amazed that you’re fitting into these sample sizes.” Her reply? “I’m a size eight to ten! I should be amazed that the largest you’re making these is a size six.” ‘Nuff said.

Charlie Sheen’s Plea Deal Goes Bust


Charlie Sheen was all set to plead guilty for assault on his wife Brooke Mueller and report to jail for 30 days. He even celebrated his plea deal with ex-wife Denise Richards!

Not so fast. The prosecutor, Arnold Mordkin,  has stated that the plea has “hit a snag” adding, “We need more time than is available for us to complete some of the finer points [of the plea deal].” Elaborating further, a source has said, “The prosecution discovered that Sheen does not qualify for work release because he is not a local resident. He does qualify for useful public service, which has stricter rules, which Sheen nixed.”

Sheen was supposed to volunteer at a local theater as part of the bargain. The source, who is apparently privy to what’s being talked about between both parties added, “It was a poker game for the last couple of hours.”

“Everyone felt it was better to postpone until [the details] can be worked out,” Sheen’s rep  has said. A new court date has been set for July 12 at 4 p.m.

As always, new details have surfaced about why the deal sank. TMZ revealed that  a woman who works in the Pitkin County Jail unraveled everything because she refused to honor the agreement, even though her own boss signed off on it. The Pitkin County Sheriff, the undersheriff, the lead prosecutor and the Pitkin County District Attorney Marty Beeson all signed on the agreement. But the woman who supervises the work release program at the jail said she had problems with the way it was structured and made it clear that she didn’t care if her boss was committed. She would not enforce it, and basically, would not let Charlie do what all of the parties agreed he could do to complete his 30-day sentence. That’s when Sheen’s attorney Yale Galanter, who brokered the deal, canned the whole thing.

All Christina Ricci Wants Is A Brazilian Booty Lift


Christina Ricci wants some more booty for her behind. You know… some more rwar! for her rear. She translated while preening at the Chrysalis 9th Annual Butterfly Ball,  “I’m desperately trying to convince my boyfriend to get me the Brazilian Booty Lift!”

The 30-year old actress was convinced, after watching an informercial for the DVD workout series, that the killer combination of dance, lunges, plyometrics and more would pack in more junk in her trunk. She continued saying, “I was like, ‘Don’t you want me to have that ass?’ They are just Brazilian butts!”

Ricci’s shaping up for her Broadway debut this September, and the rest of her’s looking more than fine, as photographs from the Ball reveal. She thanks the treadmill for maintaining her bodacious bod. She revealed, “I do a lot of walking on my treadmill because I injured myself once jogging. Now I just walk on an incline….I really try to do something physically active every day.” Work it!

Ludacris Will Sing His Old Songs No Matter What


The organizers were trying to keep things tight at the Hot 97 Summer Jams concert at the New Meadowlands Stadium. They had a master plan to keep the show running on time. If any performer went over their allotted time limit… they’d simply turn off their microphones. Gucci Mane and Funk Master Flex both got switched off, and had to leave the stage. But Ludacris wasn’t having any of it.

They switched off his mic, but Luda kept on rapping regardless. A fan who was at the concert said, “He kept rapping a cappella when they cut off his juice. Finally, they decided to turn it back on. There really wasn’t any other choice, because he wasn’t getting off the stage.” Better luck next time mic-cutter peeps.

Sandra And Ryan Reunite To Make More Movies, Money Together


Sandra Bullock has signed on to star in her first feature film after the whole mess with her marriage to Jesse James. And apparently, Sandy’s new movie Most Wanted has her teaming up with her Proposal co-star Ryan Reynolds. They’re just keeping it in the family – the flick’s written by another Proposal team player, Pete Chiarelli.

The story sounds like quite the caper. Bullock plays a criminal suspect who is forced to go on the run with her FBI agent escort (Reynolds) when they’re ambushed on their way to the courthouse. Looks like Sandy changed her mind about quitting acting. We’d definitely give any movie she’s in a watch, especially if it has Yummy Reynolds in it too.

Shocker! Naomi Campbell In Court Mess Again


Naomi Campbell‘s track record doesn’t really hold her in good standing. She’s accused of ‘channeling her rage’, to put it politely, on to anyone who dares cross her. This includes Naomi’s two assistants and a housekeeperthe paps, her driver, and television reporters.  Throw in some dubious biz involving Naomi and a blood diamond and we’ve got it almost covered. Because with the supermodel, the hits keep coming.

This latest brouhaha doesn’t deal with Campbell beating down on someone. It’s to do with her other alter ego – that are-you-kidding-me diva. The one that has her in all those crazy feuds with models. The ego that rivals the size of that blood diamond that’s getting her into trouble. Miz Naomi refused to walk up a set of stairs, hence she canned an appearance that was necessary to promote her perfume line. In a filed affidavit, her former agent Carole White said the supermodel swanned out of a televised awards show in Australia after finding out the elevator was broken and she’d have to walk up two flights of steps. White stated, “Her failure to show was not only embarrassing, but caused friction with [the] Wella [perfume] people in Australia.”

It get’s worse…White’s co-director at the Moodform Mission, Chris Owen, said Campbell was a nightmare traveling companion on the promo- tour. Not only was she constantly late for meetings, but she once tried to attack him with a bottle. BTW, Moodform is that company that’s suing Campbell for backing out of their 12-year-old perfume deal.

But if Naomi’s going down, she’s going down swinging. In court documents Campbell has said that she treated White like “a surrogate mother,” and that she’d sign whatever White put in front of her without reading it. Apparently that’s how she got stuck with a deal that she didn’t have information about. So now, she’s counter-suing, saying that Moodform got money it wasn’t entitled to, and that White concealed her role in the company. Her spokeswoman has said, “Ms. Campbell is shocked and outraged by the false allegations made by her former agent and cohorts . . . who have made a fortune off of her.”

White’s lawyer, Daniel Bright,  has asked the judge to throw the case out. In response, he’s written, “The human element that brings the parties before the court is clear: greed, ingratitude and a grotesque sense of entitlement on the part of Campbell that, in her mind, justifies her doing anything she wants to do, including stealing her business partners’ money and then lying about what happened.” However this goes down, we’re going to tell Naomi what we always tell her… don’t hit anybody.

Miley Cyrus Gets Super Raunchy Again

Miley Cyrus can’t seem to keep it even somewhat age appropriate. We’re not expecting PG-13, but seriously, if you simulate a make-out sesh with a (female) back-up dancer, people will get their panties in a twist. For Round 2 Miley’s panties were in full view.  The Artist Formerly Known as Hannah Montana was in London doing publicity for her forthcoming album Can’t be Tamed. One of her promo pit-stops was at super-famours nightclub G-A-Y, where everyone from Donna Summer to Kylie Minogue have performed.

In pure Miley style, her performance took the raunch up a notch. G-A-Y has always been notable for that; everyone who performs there can push the envelope – but they’re not bloomin’ 17. Miss Miley pranced onto stage in a tacky Union Jack top and proceeded to strip down to a teeny black dress which was cut-out from the torso and the top of her thighs. Cue flashing underwear! The cherry on top, again? She grabbed one of her writhing on-stage cohorts, pushed her backwards and leaned in for what totally appeared to be a kiss.

Now Miley denied her first kiss earlier this week blogging, “During my performance I supposedly “KISSED A GIRL” and this is the newest thing to cause controversy.I promise you I did not kiss her and it is ridiculous that two entertainers cant even rock out with each other without the media making it some type of story.” Followed by the ubiquitous, “I really hope my fans are not disappointed in me because the truth is I did nothing wrong.”

What’s explanation part deux going to be, Miles?
