The Lohan Defense: Kombucha Tea & 7 Other Things You Should Avoid Before A Drug Test

Lindsay Lohan has evaded yet another probation violation for failing a routine alcohol test. Perhaps the judge believed Lindsay’s claims that Komboucha tea was the culprit for the false positive result. Komboucha is a fermented tea thought to detoxify the body and mind and though it contains less than 0.05 percent alcohol, some think it can sway the results of alcohol tests and make you look like a lush to your friends, family and potential employers.

We all know poppy seed bagels can effect drugs tests, but in addition to Komboucha, here are some new, perhaps surprising things that could possibly have you coming up dirty on drug or alcohol tests. Keep reading »

Cory Monteith Of “Glee” Had Addictions Of The Non-Slushie Kind

“I’m not Finn Hudson. I’m lucky on so many counts—I’m lucky to be alive. I had a serious [drug] problem. I did a stint [in rehab] but then went back to doing exactly what I left off doing. I stole a significant amount of money from a family member and I knew I was going to get caught, but I was so desperate I didn’t care. [Fessing up was] the first honorable, truthful thing that had come out of my mouth in years. I was done fighting myself. I finally said, ‘I’m gonna start looking at my life and figure out why I’m doing this.’”

Cory Monteith of “Glee” tells Parade Magazine that he was an out-of-control teenager who did lots of drugs and skipped school often. How interesting that now, at age 29, he plays one of the most goody-two-shoes characters on television. Does this make anyone else want Finn to fall off the deep end next season?

Amy Winehouse Bombs Belgrade

Watch Amy Winehouse’s comeback performance in front of 20,000 people in Belgrade. Watch Amy Winehouse, slur, stumble, scratch herself and try to remove her wig. Watch Amy Winehouse cancel her tour. Any questions (besides what’s she on)? So tragic. [The Fix] Keep reading »

Quickies: Kara DioGuardi Ate Six Pot Brownies At Once & Check Out Old Navy’s Gay Pride Tee Shirts!

  • Kara DioGuardi once ate six pot brownies at Paula Abdul’s house (brought by a friend of Paula’s, she claims!) and got so high she fell out of bed and had to be taken to the hospital, she told “Lopez Tonight.” Yikes.

Courtney Love Is A “Junkie Auntie Mame” For Actresses On Drugs

“I still can’t escape the stigma [of a drug addict] for some reason. Even people like Kelly Osbourne feel free to f**k with me. A few nights ago, when she appeared on ‘Fashion Police with Joan Rivers,’ the bitch called me a crackhead. … This is a girl whose life I have saved twice, once with C.P.R. and another time with C.P.R. and violence — by which I mean I had to poke her furiously in certain places to wake her up from her coma. …She’s been sober for how long? Less than a year? Good for her! But it wasn’t that long ago when Kim Stewart was screaming, ‘Courtney, what are we going to do? Kelly Osbourne is blue on the floor!’ Kelly wasn’t doing that well back then. For some reason, Kim Stewart also called me when Paris Hilton got pulled over for her last D.U.I. And Lindsay Lohan called me after she was arrested. The judge presiding over her case was the same judge who presided over mine. He was a very sweet man. I think he was an ex-alcoholic himself. I told Lindsay to just get it together and trust the judge, and Lindsay’s father called me for advice every day. I’m not even that friendly with these girls. What am I, a junkie Auntie Mame?”

—Oh. My. God. This Courtney Love interview on The Fix, Salon.com’s new blog about addiction and recovery, is EPIC. There’s about 16 more excerpts that are priceless, including lots of Hollywood gossip about the drugs she’s done with Winona Ryder, Sting, and Andy Dick. And she talks some crazy smack about Kim Gordon, whom she calls a “cocktease” who was obsessed with Kurt Cobain. Yikes. Worth a read, definitely. [The Fix]

More from Courtney about that Kim/Kelly incident after the jump. Keep reading »

Is A Hallucinogen Growing In Gwyneth Paltrow’s Garden?

Gwyneth Paltrow has to unwind sometime, right? Well, her blog post over at GOOP from yesterday has many people wondering if she uses a little herbal assistance in doing so. In yesterday’s post, she described the herbs and vegetables she’s planted in her garden for the summer and gave accompanying photos. In one of the images, she’s labeled a section of salvia. Now, she could be talking about a specific type of sage. Or she could be talking about salvia divinorum, the legal but mind-altering substance that lead Miley Cyrus to act all cray-cray in that video. I’m kind of hoping it’s the latter. Hey, maybe her “Glee” character Holy Holiday has rubbed off on her a bit. [GOOP, NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Quickies: Katie Holmes Isn’t A Drug Addict After All & Check Out Jon Hamm Looking Hawt!

  • Star magazine apologized to Katie Holmes for saying she uses drugs in a January issue with the headline “Katie Drug Shocker!” (The drugs Katie supposedly “uses”?

Next up, Star will apologize to every single female actress whose lunchtime burrito was proclaimed “a bun in the oven”! [TMZ, PopEater]

Natalie Portman Doesn’t Smoke Pot Now That She’s Old

“I smoked weed in college, but I haven’t smoked in years. I’m too old. I wish I was that cool, but I’m like an old lady now. I’m in bed by 10 p.m. I can’t do that anymore.”

Natalie Portman talks to EW about her new medieval stoner flick, “Your Highness.” I definitely understand her saying she no longer smokes pot because, well, she’s pregnant. But to use the “old lady” excuse? Man, I am so over women in their late-20s and early-30s talking about how they’re old. Please, we have many years ahead of us to knit and play gin rummy at the senior center. For now, can we just be happy being young? [Newser] Keep reading »
