Remember when Linds got all coked up, stole a car with some dudes in it and almost ran her assistant and her mom off the road? Well now that mom, Tracie Rice, is suing her ass, and the stuff she is claiming is kind of hilarious. We’re sure the ride was traumatic, but was it really bad enough to require medication? Aside from losing her job (say what?!) and therefore her $75,000 a year income, Lindsay’s rage has also cost her:
- $3500 on therapy ($175 per visit)
- $400 on a medical doctor
- $145 for a chiropractor visit
- $100 on “medicine” (er, you mean cocaine?)
But surely there are other things she could add on to make LiLo pay for them, right? How about:
- $300 worth of leggings (to look like the star she’s suing)
- $2000 on tanning sessions (see above)
- $350 on tabloid subscriptions (she’s gotta keep up with Lindsay’s whereabouts!)
Go for it Tracie!
Poor Britney, even when she’s posing with her kids – as seen above on the latest cover of Ok! Magazine – she looks like she’s in the middle of a meltdown. And now it seems like we’ll be seeing a new side to Britney – well, not that new. But newer! Brit’s paparazzi boyfriend (who she supposedly dumped recently after figuring out his scheme) has been shopping around pics of Britney kinda naked, and apparently some Aussie mag has snatched them up. Only problem? The photog was asking for $5 million, and in the end they took in about $57,000. Brit ain’t worth what she used to be!In addition, Brit’s fam has apparently been trying to get her into a mental institution to deal with her bipolar disorder, but she wasn’t havin’ none of it. Another problem? Her pal Sam Lufti allegedly was a major impediment in getting her some treatment. What are friends for, afterall!?
What perfect timing! Just as we were gearing up for a new season of American Idol comes this crazy tale of our precious Paula Abdul totally losing it in the airport. A traveling spy saw the whole thing and offered this glorious account: “She had an insane nervous breakdown that lasted 10 minutes. One minute she was hyperventilating and on the verge of passing out; the next she was yelling into her cell phone in this deep, rage-filled ?Poltergeist? voice. She kept screaming three names over and over ? Michael, Sidney and Leslie. Everyone was staring at her, but she didn?t care.?
We have a feeling Michael, Sidney and Leslie have grabbed their passports, some cash and their dignity and high-tailed it out of the country. Will Paula lose it on this season of American Idol? Did Sanjaya have the lamest hair ever? Only six more days till we find out! Below the jump we’ve got a few of our other favorite Paula moments for you to marvel at.

J. Lo Calls Baby a ?Bubble Gut?
Lopez assumed “everybody knew” about her pregnancy before she revealed it. True, but we didn’t care! [People]
K-Fed?s Police Order Against Britney
The LAPD slapped Brit with a restraining order on behalf of her ex, a customary practice when people get crazy. Um, can we have one too? [People]
Dr. Phil Pisses Off the Spears
They’re accusing the TV doc of violating their trust when he spoke out about his meeting with Brit. What a shock, we totally expected him to stay mum. [People]
Jennifer Love Hated Bikini Blow Up
The whole bathing suit pic fiasco hurt her feelings – but it helped her career, so it was all worth it, right? [Us]
You’ve got Dewey Cox tripping through all the rock ‘n’ roll eras, from the Elvis and Buddy Holly days to the Beatles and the Maharishi daze. You got Joy Division‘s Ian Curtis making some of the most gorgeous gloom ever concocted before offing himself. And you’ve got 18-20 versions of Bob Dylan bouncing around in Todd Haynes‘ I’m Not There. All sorts of music took over the screens last year. Romp through our flipbook and see if there’s a story you missed.
Slim Shady is now Sick Shady – the rapper landed himself in the hospital over Christmas with a serious case of pneumonia and a heart condition. Sources on the inside also report that Em’s weight has ballooned to over 200 pounds. His rep recently gave the official word: “Over the holidays, Marshall Mathers, aka Eminem, was under doctor’s care at a Detroit-area hospital for complications due to pneumonia. He has since been released and is doing well recovering at home.”
We’re glad to hear he’s healing and kinda hope maybe he’s got enough material to inspire an album. Eminem’s been in hiding for the past year or so, and told Hot 97 in September that his projects were “in limbo.” Let’s hope for a speedy recovery of both his health and his career. [MTV News.]
Katherine Heigl is so pretty and perfect and all that sweet stuff. She just got married to that kind of good-looking rocker dude and is now gushing about how pumped she is to have babies. But you know who doesn’t look so psyched? Her new husband. He looks like he’d rather be crammed into a hammock somewhere, strumming his guitar and guzzling a Corona as a couple of hot chicks swoon over his dark and stormy (and mascara-enhanced?) eyes. Katherine’s brought home an Emmy, snagged a raise on her hit show Grey’s Anatomy, and scored a hit movie (last summer’s Knocked Up) and now a serious chick flick in the past year. Her asking price per film has grown from $300,000 to a nice n’ easy $6 million! And you know she’s just waiting to get all ugly for some role and win an Oscar a la Charlize Theron – and score some sweet endorsement deals during her free time. All which leads us to believe that this cute couple isn’t gonna have time for baby-making, because they’ll be to busy breaking up after her star becomes too bright. Don’t believe me? Just ask Reese Witherspoon and Hilary Swank.
Check out more pics of Katherine and her hubby at the premiere of 27 Dresses below:

We spend a good 95% of our day thinking, reading, and yapping about Britney Spears. And every day it’s the same old crap (like last night: her car broke down, she hitched a ride with paparazzi, Brit rocked an almost nip-slip, slept at the Peninsula Hotel and looked generally trashy and insane) . Life with Britney is like that movie Groundhog Day, except her sh*t stopped being funny a long time ago and we still laugh at Bill Murray. So here is what we wish we could write – a day in the life of Britney that we could only dream of. Maybe someday even just a minute of it will come true.
7AM: Britney rises early and heads out for a jog wearing a supportive sports-bra, a tank top that covers her stomach, actual shorts and sneakers. Her short, natural hair is pulled back in a headband.
9AM: On the way home for her run, Brit stops by a local coffee shop for a small cup of green tea.
10AM: Britney takes a long, hot shower, washes her hair, scraps off her fake tan and scrubs her finger nails.
11AM: The starlet chews some Nicorette while cleaning out her entire closet, and donates her collection of skanky shirts, butt-revealing dresses and beat-up boots to charity.
12PM: Britney’s kids come over for a visit and she makes then a healthy meal, plays with them in the yard, and puts them down for a nap.
4PM: Mama Brit drives (below the speed limit) her reasonably-priced hybrid vehicle to the farmer’s market and picks up some vegetables and fish for dinner.
6PM: The family gathers for a meal made of actual food, followed by a G-rated movie together.
8PM: Britney goes to bed. Alone.
Nicole Kidman: Officially Knocked Up

Don’t take dating tips from Jessica Simpson. If her past track record isn’t enough (we miss you
Bam Nick and John!), let her latest sexy move be a lesson to you – she is currently on vacation with recent flame Tony Romo and her parents. HER PARENTS! How can they get busy when her mom and dad are sleeping right next door?! The couple, the Simpsons, and some pals are all staying together in a rented villa in Cabo San Lucas. At the airport, a source spotted Jess and Tony ?rubbing each others butts and laughing on the tarmac.” Kinky! Things got even crazier over at their vacation house. ?Tony couldn’t stop touching Jessica,? another spy (with really awesome long-distance vision) said, ?They were having a great time, with Jess? parents laughing and joking with Jess and Tony. Tony was affectionate to Jess and everyone seemed very relaxed.?
Yes, supervised sleepovers are always such stress relievers! It sounds like Jess needs to check her co-dependency baggage – and her rents – the next time she travels with her dude…if he even sticks around that long. [Us]
