Yesterday, Lindsay Lohan checked into the facility where (I think) she belongs: rehab. Lohan went to the Pickford Lofts, a sober-living house in Los Angeles. Pickford Lofts was founded by Robert Shapiro, a lawyer who defended O.J. Simpson in the ’90s and whose son died from an overdose in 2005. Apparently, Lindz is hoping the judge will reduce her jail sentence or toss the sentence entirely, provided she stays in rehab. She’s only been in rehab for 24 hours now and already she has received visits from her ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson, mom Dina and sister Ali, her assistant, and her alleged flame, Eilat Anschel. The assistant was toting a case of Sprite, toilet paper, and bags from Blick art supply.
Even if the judge says “no way, José” to Lindsay’s last-ditch attempt to avoid jail — hasn’t this girl been in rehab, like, three times already? — her stint at Pickford Lofts won’t be for naught. She definitely will need to sober up before she is required to check into the slammer on Tuesday. [People, New York Daily News] Keep reading »
You’re probably asking yourself: “How the hell is it possible to get high digitally?” Well, you know those ecstasy-hungry and internet-savvy teens are always looking for the next big high. And apparently, one only needs a set of headphones, an MP3 player, and an internet connection to experience “i-dosing,” which involves purchasing “digital drugs” from a dealer on a website.

Lindsay Lohan is heading to the slammer. But don’t worry about her career being ruined, she has bigger plans for when she gets out of the big house. Supposedly, she wants to open up her very own rehab facility for struggling starlets like herself. Proud mama Dina talked about her daughter’s aspirations to become a rehab mogul. “Lindsay actually wants to open up her own rehab center here and a couple across the country to help other kids and celebs so they don’t fall through the cracks in this town. She mentioned it to me a couple of days ago. She’s really growing up.” Moving. Very moving. [Celebitchy]
After the jump, some special perks we hope to see at The Lohan House, or whatever she decides to call it. Keep reading »
“If somebody’s gonna smoke a joint in their house and not do anybody else any harm, then perhaps there are other things our cops should be looking at to engage in and try to clean up some of the other problems that we have in society. Relatively speaking, it is a minimal problem.”
—Sarah Palin, appearing on the Fox Business Network. While she’s against legalizing marijuana, she also isn’t for busting folks for minor possession. Why am I now picturing her and Todd sharing a doobie at the end of the day? [Newser] Keep reading »
You guys aren’t going to believe this one. In addition to drinking themselves into oblivion and getting into fights with random strangers, the cast members of “Jersey Shore” allegedly also do drugs. Oh wait, that’s not unbelievable in the slightest. Still, a source has leaked to Radar that one cast member in particular has a cocaine problem, and went to great lengths to buy the stuff in Miami without being caught on camera. “Miami is obviously a big drug city and when this cast member want to score, it wasn’t hard,” said the source. “A lot of things were done in code. Other people knew about it but no one ratted out this person.” Annoyingly, the gossip site won’t either. “RadarOnline.com knows the identity of the star, but has chosen not to name the cast member,” the article reads. So who do we think it is? Here’s hoping it’s not our beloved Snooki. My money is on Pauly D—hey, the dude spends 90 percent of his time up all hours at clubs—or J-Woww—just because she’s so skinny. Who do you think it is? [Radar Online] Keep reading »
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 »
“Tonight, on ‘Sick, Sad World,’ nuns busted in a convent drug ring.” Yes, this actually happened in real life. For the past three years, the Italian police had been keeping their eye on a convent in North Italy which had a South American caretaker. Evidently, the caretaker had teamed up with the ‘Ndrangheta crime syndicate and was distributing drugs through the small church. ‘Pilgrims’ would come to the convent to pick up and drop off prayer books stuffed full of cocaine. Talk about a religious fix. Yesterday, the convent was raided and 33 people were arrested. It appears that the nuns actually had no idea what was going on, so we hope they’re set free soon!

Yesterday, “Pretty Wild” star Alexis Neiers was sentenced to 180 days in the clink for her participation in the bling ring, a group of Hollywood-area knuckleheads who robbed celebrities like Orlando Bloom and Rachel Bilson. Now it looks like any chance that her time in the slammer will appear on a second season of the E! show are dashed — the network is reportedly canceling the show, not because of Neiers’ prison sentence, but because new photos of her and pal Tess Taylor reportedly doing drugs have hit the internet. The gossip site The Dirty, which released photos of Taylor topless and smoking from a bong last week, has new photos online today (see all of them here), which allegedly show Neiers and Taylor smoking black tar heroin. Now, I’m not exactly an expert in what smoking heroin looks like from afar, but these pics don’t bode well for the young reality show stars. E! would be doing the right thing by canceling the show, freeing up Taylor and Neiers’ time to go to a little place called rehab. [The Dirty] Keep reading »
Getting photographed smoking out of a bong is dumb. But getting photographed smoking out of a bong while topless?
“Pretty Wild” reality star Tess Taylor — the one Alexis Neiers calls her “sister,” even though the two are just friends who are not biologically related — was snapped sans bra with a big ol’ bong and the pics were posted on a D-list gossip blog, TheDirty.com. Tess Taylor’s lawyer fired off a cease and desist letter to The Dirty’s editor, Nik Richie, claiming the nude photos were posted “illegally” and they violate her privacy. (At least Richie courteously Photoshopped little pink hearts over Taylor’s nips.)
Oh, poor Tess. But we’re sure you were just smoking tobacco out of that bong … right? [TMZ.com] Keep reading »
Police responded to a 911 “disturbance” call at porn star Jenna Jameson‘s home yesterday — and her boyfriend, UFC fighter Tito Ortiz, was led away in handcuffs for felony domestic violence. According to TMZ, police observed “visible injuries” on Jameson when they arrived at the couple’s Huntington Beach, California mansion yesterday morning at 9:52 a.m. Last night, Jameson told the gossip site TMZ that the couple argued on Monday morning because she “said something very hurtful to his ego.” She then alleged that Ortiz grabbed her and “threw me into the bathtub and tore two ligaments in my shoulder.”
