Star Couplings: Madonna Pleads For Mercy, Chris Brown Has A New Girl

  • Madonna has plans to build a house in Malawi in the hopes of adopting Mercy. She’s opened up to the country’s Nation newspaper, blabbing about better health care, education, and a stable family environment. [Dlisted]
  • Lindsay Lohan had one out of control weekend following her breakup with Sam Ronson last week. She was spotted at a party drinking copious amounts of vodka until she was unable to form a sentence. But that didn’t stop LiLo from moving on to the next party just before 3 a.m. [Perez Hilton] Somebody needs to get Dr. Drew Pinsky over to Lindsay before she ends up like Britney Spears.
  • Nicole Richie has kicked Joel Madden out of his home office because she needs the space to be Harlow’s new “big girl” bedroom now that the couple is expecting a second child. [OK! Magazine]
  • Chris Brown has a new girlfriend, Erica Jackson. Well, not really new. She was reportedly his on-again, off-again jumpoff when he was dating Rihanna. And staying true to his idea of romance, Erica supposedly got a tattoo that matches one of Chris’s, which also happens to match one of Rihanna’s. [Media Takeout] Hopefully Erica carries some pepper spray because she might need it down the road.
  • The OctoMom could have a reality show deal by the end of next week, according to her lawyer. And her parents are seeking ways to make money off the babies. [Us Magazine]
  • Joshua Duggar, 21, and his wife Anna, 20, are expecting their first child. They say they’ll let God decide how many children they’ll have. [People] At least the Duggars know how to take care of their own without support from taxpayers.
