When last we heard from Boardwalk Empire actress Paz de la Huerta, she was turned away from a Golden Globes party for being too drunk to walk. Unfortunately, de la Huerta is in the news again for another drunken incident, but this one turned violent and she was arrested for assault as a result.
de la Huerta was reportedly partying at the Standard Hotel in New York City on Sunday when she and Samantha Swetra, star of MTV’s The City started to argue. Allegedly, Swetra remarked about de la Huerta’s level of intoxication after de la Huerta accidentally fell down and exposed herself, reports the Daily News. That prompted de la Huerta to throw a glass and punch Swetra in the face. The glass cut Swetra, and in a bizarre turn, she was tended to by Lindsay Lohan who was there hanging out with her. (Oh, Lindsay. Will you ever not be hanging out at bars, even after all you’ve been through?) Swetra filed charges against de la Huerta, who was arrested last night. de la Huerta certainly does love to party, as evidenced in our gallery below of some of her choicest “rough night” photos, unfortunately in this case, she just partied a little too hard.

Michael Lohan has been charged with “inflicting injury on a cohabitant,” a misdemeanor, following ex-girlfriend Kate Major’s accusations of domestic violence. His bail was set at $30,000, with an arraignment scheduled for May 23rd. While there was reportedly visible marking on her, Lohan has denied injuring Major, claiming she applied the bruises with make-up.
Despite his track record of violence towards women, Lohan was defiant after being released from the hospital yesterday (he complained of chest pains following his arrest). “I asked to press charges on her—Look, I’m the one who got cut, I’m the one that was bleeding!” he told Radar. “I’m going to press charges against Kate and I’m going to try to have her arrested before she leaves California…I have to see what’s missing and have her charged with robbery,” he said. I want to also have her charged with assault with a deadly weapon—she cut me with something—domestic assault and trespassing.” Major left LA by plane last night.

Chris Brown may have visited an art gallery and even shot some hoops between his backstage meltdown at Good Morning America and last night’s album premiere party at Webster Hall, but the Chris’ heated interview with Robin Roberts was still on his mind when he went on stage. “We’re gonna forget the media!” he shouted to cheers from the crowd. “I didn’t plan on performing when I came here, but f— it!” He later commented, “A lot of whack s—happened today,” and did a number with rapper Waka Flocka Flame, giving Chris another chance to show off his chest tattoos.
Despite Brown allegedly staring down a producer and almost throwing a chair through a window facing Times Square yesterday, Good Morning America apparently will not be pressing charges against the singer. In fact, GMA would like to have Chris Brown back on the show! “We extended the invitation to him,” said Roberts today, “and sure hope he takes us up on it because I’d sure love to have another chat with him.” Nice precedent, guys! Remind us to walk on the other side of the street, in case more celebrity guests decide to test the strength of ABC’s windows.
See video from Chris’ show after the jump.
Well, hello, Dr. Jekyll! Rather than hiding out after smashing a window in Times Square following his Good Morning America interview, Chris Brown simply put on another shirt, donned a pair of glasses and hit the streets of Manhattan with a girlfriend, visiting the restaurant Chin Chin and admiring art at the Opera Gallery. For some reason paparazzi were full of questions about his violent rampage, but the singer just smiled and signed CDs for fans. Maybe he heard E! Online’s claim that ABC doesn’t plan to file a complaint about his property destruction, and therefore Chris may not see jail time for violating probation. Besides, how could a fellow at the art gallery with glasses need more anger management classes? Pip pip!

Chris Brown wants so much for us to forget about his violent outburst against Rihanna that he’s willing to create another violent outburst to overshadow it. That’s some dedication. Brown flew off the handle this morning after an interview on Good Morning America with Robin Roberts after Roberts asked Brown more questions about Rihanna than Brown cared for, and ended up smashing a window at the television studio. Now, Roberts is claiming that she ran all Rihanna-related questions past Brown before she sat down with him. A representative from ABC News defended Roberts‘ line of questioning as well, saying in a statement “As always, we ask questions that are relevant and newsworthy, and that’s what we did in this interview with Mr. Brown.”
Brown, who is currently still on probation as a result of his 2009 altercation with Rihanna, might face charges and even jail time for violating his probation as a result of his behavior today. In an audiotape obtained by TMZ, an ABC staffer was recorded as saying she called police to check on the window Brown allegedly smashed with a chair during his rampage. “If he is still on probation and charged with a criminal offense,” criminal defense attorney Thomas Kenniff told Fox News, “the violation would spell jail time.” Guess we’ll wait and see if charges are pressed to find out what Brown’s fate is. So much for Brown being a model probationer, which is what a judge called him in November.

TMZ has been pushing for Lindsay Lohan to consider a plea deal; sure they’d love to cover her trial, but can they risk her being off the streets for over a year? According to the site, she may finally be listening to her enablers/advisers. Despite her professions of innocence (you can’t expect her to remember what jewelry she puts on when shopping, or to return stolen goods promptly), Lohan is “seriously considering” the prison term Judge Schwartz would demand of her. The official time frame is three months, but that’s less than three weeks in overcrowded-LA-jail time.
It won’t be long until all this conjecture is moot; LiLo’s lawyer has to accept or dismiss the plea by Wednesday, and they’ll be in court to make it official Friday. Considering the DA’s planning to bring up several earlier examples of Lindsay’s alleged kleptomania (“Lindsay has major entitlement issues, which have led her down this very dark road,” a prosecution source told Radar), it certainly sounds like Lindsay might accept a forced vacation after all. You can’t start your comeback until you go away!
Clark County’s Deputy D.A David Schubert is known to be pretty hardcore in court. When celebrities like Bruno Mars and Paris Hilton got busted for cocaine possession, Schubert was the one prosecuting them in Vegas. Mars and Hilton and the like are probably laughing their behinds off now, because Schubert was arrested for—wait for it— cocaine possession on Saturday night! That’s him in the glasses and the gray tie standing next to Mars in the photograph. Just screams “love to party,” doesn’t he?
Schubert’s already been released from the Clark County Detention Center, but he’s probably going to lay low for sometime, right? Seriously…how’s he going to send people to jail for coke now? But hey, in this town, guess you can’t turn your nose up at anyone (pun unintended).

Remember when TMZ said secret dirt in Lindsay Lohan’s probation report would “destroy” her if she doesn’t take a plea bargain? Well, if what we learned today is all that’s hiding in the vault, color us unimpressed. The site says the report has proof that she’s been drinking again—Kombucha tea, to be precise. You may recall the drama last year over whether Kombucha crosses the 0.5% alcohol content that defines whether a drink is alcoholic. The makers of LiLo’s preferred brand swears they keep it under the limit, but it’s possible a judge could look poorly on Lindsay chugging the stuff.
Then again, some think that Kombucha actually works to help alcoholics get over their addiction. We found that out in an post about Lindsay’s Kombucha craziness published last May, by…drum roll…TMZ. Can they really treat this like a smoking gun when they shot it over eight months ago? We almost hope there’s also something about a hobo-knifing in that report, because otherwise their hysteria is just embarrassing.

Another day, another terrifying stalker silently whizzing past Madonna‘s sleeping security guards on a zip line. An alleged stalker broke into Madonna’s London home this weekend. Perpetrator Grzegorz Matlok smashed a window to gain access to the home, and was apprehended and charged with burglary. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Madonna was at her grandmother’s funeral when it happened. Madge seriously needs to call ADT or release the hounds or something. Even posting a gigantic picture of her ripped biceps would deter most career criminals.
This certainly isn’t the first time Madge had her domicile threatened by someone who loves “Isla Bonita” more than any other human being has ever loved anything, ever. Back in September, a stalker spray-painted love notes outside Madonna’s home in New York; the next month, another scratched “Meet Me” with an ice pick in the side of Madonna’s house. Wow, hats off to Madge for even leaving her bedroom! Madonna’s security forces also reported that in 1996 a Madonna stalker was sentenced to 10 years for felony stalking, after he scaled the walls around her home in L.A. Hmmm, maybe Madge’s security forces should stop gossiping to the press and actually watch the surveillance video, rather than play Angry Birds all night. Oh, you know that’s what they’re doing. We’ve got ‘em pegged.
