Lindsay Lohan Hits A Baby Stroller? Ways She Can Turn Her Image Around, Stat!

In her Vanity Fair cover story, Lindsay Lohan claimed that she is a changed woman. We want to believe her. But in the week since she’s been released from rehab—where she was sent after doing a stint in jail—there’s not a whole lot of evidence that points in that direction. On Saturday, she was back at her old haunt, the bar at the Chateau Marmont, which doesn’t seem like the best choice of venue. It also probably doesn’t help that in the movie “Machete,” which opens this week, she appears naked, has a threesome with her mother (egads), and goes to a drug den.

And today comes a new report. Lindsay allegedly tapped a baby carriage with her Maserati and kept going, even though there was a baby in the stroller at the time. Keep reading »

The Hammer That Can Save Your Life

Most people don’t expect to get into an car crash, but it helps to be prepared and have a plan in the event of a collision. The Life Hammer should be a part of the preparation. Not only can it safely shatter a car window, but it can also cut through a jammed seat belt with its razor-sharp blade. But even with these life-saving features, we hope you never have to actually use the Life Hammer.

Did A BJ Cause A Car Crash?

Australian tavern worker, Allyson White, was sitting in the passenger seat of a truck driven by an unnamed, unlicensed driver when it crashed in the hysterically named town of Humpty Doo. Now, the Australian media is reporting that White may have been partly responsible. Police are suspicious that she was giving the driver a BJ, distracting him enough to cause the crash. But White vehemently denies this. “It may have looked bad when police first arrived as my girls were hanging out all over the place. I also had a $5 note wedged between my boobs so they probably just assumed I was a sex worker or something and he’d already paid me,” she said, before showing a journalist the seat belt burn mark across her chest, which she suffered in the accident. “Fair enough he shouldn’t have been driving but I didn’t realize he was drunk and would never have got in the car if I did.” I think we’ve all learned an important lesson from this—no getting in cars with drunk dudes and no on-the-road hummers. We all remember a similar scene in “Parenthood,” no? [Northern Territory News] Keep reading »

What Happened Before Diane Schuler’s Wrong-Way Car Crash?

We are still reeling from the July 26 accident in New York, where a woman with a minivan full of kids drove the wrong way down the Taconic State Parkway for almost two miles before crashing into another car, killing herself and seven others, including her daughter and three nieces. Earlier this week, it was revealed that Diane Schuler was drunk, at about twice the legal blood-alcohol limit, and high on marijuana at the time of the accident. This incited outrage for obvious reasons—the cover of the New York Post for the day read, “How Could She?” But what has us so grimly fascinated with this case is that, aside from being horrific, it makes no sense. Diane Schuler’s husband, Daniel, claims his wife was not an alcoholic and only smoked weed occasionally. She was an executive at Cablevision and the ultimate responsible chick. So what happened?

The Daily Squeeze: Lost Rings, Monkey Porn, And Breast Cancer

  • This is a really sad story. A woman who was in a car accident was airlifted to a hospital and eventually died, survived by her husband, a four-year-old and a one-year-old.
