Lohan vs Duff Part 5,329



Lindsay Lohan claims that she tried to end the
infamous feud between her and Hilary Duff, but, she says, she got hung
up on when she called.

“I called her last
week, and I was like, ‘Do you wanna hang out?’ And her sister hung up
the phone on me!” Lohan told the magazine Australian. “I don’t like

“OMG!!! Jassica No More??”



We’ve had to deal with a lot of high-profile celebrity breakups, but few have been as rough as the heart-wrenching demise of Laguna Beach’s
very own Jason and Jessica, also known as Jassica (or Jesson, whichever

It was a sad day of television when Jason and Jessica  of Laguna Beach parted ways but thank goodness TVgasm is here for us with a tissue…and some laughs…at their expense. Enjoy.[link]

thinks of herself as "fat little dorky kid." 
I was not aware that dorky fat kids were comfortable enough to showcase their stomach at every public event. Well, I just didn’t know that until TODAY. Thank you Gwen. Thank you for showing us the light. You are an inspiration to  dorky fat kids everywhere! Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go grab a dingdong because it’s obviously working wonders for you.

“Chick” by Nicky Hilton Fashion Show



I’m not a fashionista but I’m pretty sure that’s not a dress. I see where her knees start  and I see where that skirt ends and I’m thinking it’s more bedroom attire than clubbing wear. Shockingly, even with that being said the rest of Nicky‘s fashions look as if they will be hitting  K-mart this fall, a store I’m sure Nicky doesn’t even know exists.[link]
