I was not prepared to like Shallon Lester, the star of MTV‘s newest reality show, “Downtown Girls.” I mean, she’s on an MTV reality show, right?! These are the people who foisted Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt upon our unsuspecting souls. I prepared myself for MTV’s latest skinny blonde offering to the couch potato gods to be predictably detestable.

- Wow, this will be one interesting faculty meeting: an employee at Oakwood Elementary School in Virginia was placed on administrative leave last Thursday after it was discovered that 4-inch-tall plastic human fetus dolls were handed out to third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students. Apparently, the fetus dolls, which were not instruction materials meant for class, were handed out over the past few months and came attached with a “pro-life” message and information on the first 12 weeks of fetal growth. Oakwood’s principal has also been placed on leave while an investigation takes place. [HamptonRoads.com]
- Sarah Palin is still saying she might run for president. Or more specifically: “I’m not going to close any door that perhaps would open.” [Gawker]
Warning: this clip from a new ABC TV show called “What Would You Do?” is hard to watch, even though I know the “abusive boyfriend” and the “abused girlfriend” are only actors.
On four different occasions, “What Would You Do?” filmed diners at a restaurant watching two “couples” — one white, one black — sit down at a table when the “girlfriend” has obviously just been beat up. In both cases the “girlfriend,” who has cuts on her face and bruises on her arms, is terrified of her “boyfriend” and tells him to stop making a scene in public. Of course, he does not stop making a scene at all and only escalates his anger in front of all the other diners.
Party time’s over, Lindz! Days after Lindsay Lohan missed her court appearance while she
partied in Cannes replaced her lost passport, today she faced a Los Angeles Superior Court judge for a sentencing smackdown: a drinking ban, an alcohol bracelet and random weekly drug testing. Lohan also must attend all of her alcohol counseling sessions unless they interfere with a random drug test. All this and she’s not only out $100,000 for the bond posted for her arrest after missing last Thursday’s court appearance, but her creep-o father, Michael Lohan, attended today’s hearing (although he was mercifully not allowed to speak). Bummer, dude. At least her attorney says “they think they know” who “stole” her passport. So there’s some good news.
Lohan also took some out of her busy schedule to talk with Hollywood.tv about those her passport woes, partying rumors, her felonious father and those alleged coke photos. Her explanation: “I was just taking a picture with a fan!” Still, I feel kinda bad for Lindsay. Girlfriend looks hella stressed. [CNN] Keep reading »
Breaking news: Lady Gaga does not — repeat, DOES NOT — have a penis. After a night out at a Berlin sex party (where else?), U.K. journalist Caitlin Moran snuck a peek while Gaga peed through her fishnets (?!?!) at 3 a.m. in a VIP toilet and solved the mystery that even Oprah couldn’t put to death:
For the first year of her career, massive internet rumours claimed that Gaga was, in fact, a man — a rumour so strong that Oprah had to question her about it, when Gaga appeared on her show. Perhaps uniquely among all the journalists in the world, I can now factually confirm that Lady Gaga does not have a penis.
