Lindsay Posts Bail, Will Avoid Arrest—If Not Jail Time

by

Sorry, TMZ—looks like you won’t get that “LiLo in cuffs” photo you’ve been crying for. Lindsay Lohan posted the $100,000 bail that will keep police from swarming upon her like locusts in blue upon her eventual arrival at LAX from Cannes. Already facing jail time for missing alcohol education classes, Lindsay risked arrest by skipping an important court date Thursday concerning her probation. Despite allegations that someone (possibly an agent of the nefarious Michael Lohan) stole Lindsay’s passport, the judge issued a bench warrant. Lindsay is expected to return to America later today.

Despite her freedom, we presumably won’t see much of Lindsay once she returns, as she’ll be forced to abstain from alcohol and wear an anklet. With photos of the starlet living it up in Cannes continuing to surface (and the French police denying Lindsay reported that missing passport), she could be in for a rude awakening when she finally steps into court. The scary thing is that Lindsay may not have even hit her low yet—she could still show up at Chateau Marmont this weekend, wearing her court-enforced alcohol monitor as an accessory.

Bret Michaels Suffers Another Stroke, Has Hole In His Heart

He just got out! Bret Michaels spent a harrowing couple of weeks in the hospital ICU when he suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage (bleeding at the base of his brain stem) on April 21.  Bret was released from hospital even though he was “still very sick,” but was on his way to making a full recovery. He was even planning to compete in the live Celebrity Apprentice finale on Sunday.

Unfortunately he’s now suffered a “warning stroke” that has him back in hospital. Tests have revealed that Bret also has a hole in his heart. His neurosurgeon, Dr Jospeh Zabramski has revealed that the news is “devastating…to Bret and his family.” He adds, “The good news is that it is operable and treatable and we think we may have diagnosed the problem that caused the…warning stroke; however we feel it is highly unlikely this is connected to the brain hemorrhage he suffered just a few weeks earlier. Once again, it is great that he quickly reacted to the severe numbness and got to the hospital immediately.”

Michaels attitude is still positive. Dr. Zabramski further states, “I realize Bret wants to make a full recovery so that he can be active with his family, attempt to attend the finale of Celebrity Apprentice and especially get back on the road to continue making music. Without a doubt he is very determined to get healthy and make a 100 percent recovery. Medically speaking it is a fantastic attitude both mentally and physically for him to have. However, Bret’s brain and body are not quite 100 percent yet, especially with the hole found in his heart.”

Stay tuned for more details. We have our fingers crossed for you Bret!

Naomi Campbell Has To Testify About Blood Diamonds

by (@missmuttoo)

SPL181350_010

This blood diamond business is not going away. We had written about Naomi Campbell refusing to testify at the former Liberian president Charles Taylor’s war crimes trial at The Hague. He had apparently, given her a massive uncut “blood diamond” in South Africa in 1997. This is when the supermodel and Mia Farrow were Nelson Mandela’s overnight guests.

Now, prosecutors for the trial have asked the judges to subpoena the hard-hitting Campbell to testify about those blood diamonds she allegedly received from Taylor. Their timing is just perfect too. Her billionaire BF Vlad Doronin, is throwing her a massive 40th birthday party at the Hotel du Cap which is going to be milling with plenty of celebrities from the Cannes Film Festival. Just try not to hit anyone, Naomi. We know you’re stressed!

Did you really think that Chuck Bass was going to go down in a dirty alley in Prague? The Gossip Girl finale lived up to it’s name and had us texting “WTF. XOXO” frantically. What the hell, dudes? Fortunately, news has surfaced so rest your pretty little heads. Ed Westwick aka Chuck Bass in not dead.

CW’s Upfront charted out a Bass bio and it turns out that he’s alive and well and has a new lease on life! And Chair isn’t done because Bass is going to up the ante on his efforts to get back a Paris-bound Blair! Swoon! No change on the Little J front. Taylor Momsen‘s still MIA for an ‘indefinite’ number of episodes!

Casting Couch: Top Ten Actresses That Could Replace Megan Fox In Transformers 3

by (@unclegrambo)

foxreplacements

Hey there, Michael Bay! Not sure that we’ve been properly introduced. Here at The FABLife, we’re big fans of the way you are able to subtly wrench powerful emotional performances out of your actors, and we’re surely not the first to tell you that your mise-en-scène would make Truffaut weep with jealousy. Just kidding, we mostly love you because there’s no one better in the business at blowing sh*t up.

And hey, we heard the news that you fired Megan Fox from Transformers 3. We applaud the decision; after all, you can’t let some scrawny, hammer-thumbed bimbette tarnish the directorial legacy that you’ve been building ever since you first stepped behind the lens as the director of Playboy Video Centerfold: Kerri Kendall! Gotta keep your eye on the prize, can’t let one bad apple ruin the bunch, we get it.

But since we’ve heard that you’ve already started filming the third installment of Transformers in Los Angeles, we figured you might need some help finding a new love interest for Shia LaBeouf. To that end, we have gone to the trouble of compiling a list of ten actresses who could replace that ungrateful harlot, Megan Fox, as well as the reasons you’ll want to talk to them. Hopefully this will save you some time and allow you to complete the film in time for its planned release date of July 4, 2012!

Ow! Justin Bieber Bumps His Head On Revolving Door

by

Still reeling from our post on Justin Bieber‘s kissing technique? This video of the Beeb bonking his head on a revolving door should satisfy those who want to believe he’s too innocent for making out outside a Wal-Mart (don’t let his boyishness confuse you…dude’s sixteen!). “I just walked into that door,” he confessed to the paps who caught his lil’ boo-boo. “My forehead hurts…I pushed and I thought it opened but obviously it didn’t, and I walked right into the window.” Thank goodness he had that helmet of a haircut or he might have really hurt himself. Enjoy the cuteness in the gallery below while you can, fans…once that voice drops there’s no telling what indignities lie ahead.

Naked Pictures Of David Boreanaz’s Alleged Mistress (Ed Note – Eww)

by

I suppose the internet is just doing its job by uncovering nude photos of David Boreanaz’s alleged mistress, Demi Delia (real name Gina Rodriguez), but, well, sometimes the internet doing its job is kinda gross.

Below, the NSFWey photos of Ms. Delia. Come to think of it, have we ever posted a thing about David Boreanaz’s actual career? Ionknow. He’s fine on Bones. Here are some boobs. For news purposes, not non-gross purposes:

This Nike Ad Might Actually Make America Watch The World Cup (No It Won’t)

by

First, watch. Then we discuss.

I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “This is very much like the Jim Belushi/Michael Caine vehicle Mr. Destiny from 1990 wherein Michael Caine plays an angel who visits Jim Belushi and allows him to relive his life as though he had hit the winning homerun in high school.” You are RIGHT, Friend. And I’ll tell you one thing, Jim Belushi didn’t end up living in a trailer with Wayne Rooney. He hit the homerun, married Rene Russo*and lived in a mansion house with a fancy car!

Booyah! USA! USA!
 

*This is my second reference to Rene Russo today.
