Lindsay Lohan is spending her 27th birthday today in rehab, which we imagine really sucks. So, while we know the actress made a truckload of terrible decisions to land herself in this court-ordered 90-day situation, we thought we’d give her a little birthday present: a list of 10 decisions she made that weren’t monumentally bad. Maybe then she can hold her head up a little higher, and remember these the next time her mom asks her to go out clubbing.
Let’s be real, shall we? Some of the Mean Girls actors have moved on to better things. Amanda Seyfried has literally blown up in the past six months (well, not literally), Rachel McAdams is firmly on the A-list and Tina Fey is now writing a Mean Girls musical with her musician husband Jeff Richmond, which is pretty much the pinnacle of human achievement. “I’m trying to develop it with my husband, who does all the music for 30 Rock and I think Paramount’s onboard,” Fey told E! at the SAG Awards. After gushing about her love of Mariah Carey, Tina added, “Maybe she can play Amy Poehler’s part in the musical.” Oh wow, Mariah singing “You Girls Keep Me Young” with a Chihuahua chewing up her bazooms would go perfectly with the show-stopping number “The Limit Does Not Exist” and the Unfriendly Black Hotties choir. (Yes, we’ve been writing this musical in our heads for the past eight years. What’s your point?)
Happy Spirit Day, everyone! If you’re not wearing purple today, you can still show your support for bullied victims and LGBT youth in all sorts of other ways (visit GLAAD.org for some ideas). We decided to mark this occasion with a look back at the meanest and cruelest bullies of pop culture who got their glorious comeuppance before our very eyes. From Heathers and Back to the Future to Pretty Little Liars and Glee, watching the likes of Heather and Biff get put in their place has made us feel much better about our own torturers. Maybe they even made a few real-life bullies think twice about what they were doing. We hope so!

A mere six years after its release, filmmakers are ready to ride the incredible critical and commercial success of the Tina Fey’s classic teen comedy Mean Girls…with a made-for-tv sequel. With no Tina. Originally slated for a straight-to-DVD release, all signs point to Mean Girls 2 being officially low-budget enough for Lindsay Lohan to actually star in it.
The movie, filmed with an all-new cast, will reportedly premiere on Disney-owned ABC Family, or so some glean from that fact that most of the new Plastics are aging Disney child stars like Wizards of Waverly Place’s Jennifer Stone and Nicole Anderson from Jonas L.A.. But really, why all the re-casting? Certainly Amanda Seyfried and Rachel McAdams might be hard-pressed to find time in their success-packed schedules to film it, but Lacey Chabert? Girlfriend is still probably wandering around the old Mean Girls set, rubbing an orange pleated mini-skirt against her face and whispering, “Remember when?.”
La Lohan also needs to get on this, stat. Not only will she be available (after 90 days in rehab) and looking for work, but she seriously needs to find some employment that doesn’t require showing underboob. Casting aside, at the rate it’s going, Mean Girls 2 will almost certainly make Labor Pains look like Breakfast At Tiffany’s.
