“[Lindsay Lohan] absolutely lied. We were having an argument, it escalated. She just wanted to hurt me at that moment. You know, mothers [and] daughters, we fight. I hate cocaine. I don’t do cocaine. I’m so proud of her for telling the truth because it destroyed me. I mean, I cried for weeks. It just hurt me so bad and she knew how horrible that was, and she came clean and told the truth that she lied. I’m very proud of her for that, which is very difficult to have to do. There’s so much more to the story than the public sees, and it takes its toll on my children and myself, and we’re just trying to move forward.”
– Dina Lohan assured “Entertainment Tonight” that she hates cocaine and that when daughter Lindsay called her father in a panic last month, yelling that Dina was crazy because she’d just done coke, it was untrue. Michael Lohan called 911 and released audio of Lindsay’s call to him to TMZ. But thankfully, Lindsay has come clean about this big misunderstanding. Hurrah! Dina’s good name is restored!

“The texture felt so good that I decided to rub my head and boobs all over it. It was a tree I was humping.”
– Jenny MacCarthy confesses to a sexual encounter with a tree while high on ecstasy in her new book Bad Habits: Confessions of a Recovering Catholic. Well, I guess that explains what was going on with that girl who was caught on video humping a tree. Maybe if I did drugs I’d find a lot more possible sex partners of the inanimate variety. Actually … I think I’ll pass. [DListed]
Hey stoners, guess what? That’s right: in Washington and Colorado, marijuana is now completely legal for recreational use by legal adults (that means anyone over the age of 21). You jealous? I am, but I guess I’ll get over it. While we wait for the other 48 states to come around (or is it 49? Puerto Rico, are you there?), let’s celebrate this very small victory with a selection of eight classy, subtle products, from bougie candles to a soothing body cream, that are either made from or inspired by Cannabis sativa. And please, for the love of god, leave your Bob Marley shirt at home.
Fiona Apple is a real “Criminal” now: she was arrested for possession of hash in Texas and is currently being held in a local jail. According to TMZ, her tour bus was stopped at a border in Sierra Blanca and authorities found hash inside. Hash, for those of you who live a sheltered life, is a very potent form of canabis that gets you hiiiiiiiiigh as a kite and totally explains why she filmed that music video with an octopus on her head. Anyway, Fiona was busted at the same border stop where Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg have also been arrested for drug possession. What an illustrious group you have joined, Fiona. I eagerly await the angry songs this incident will inspire. [Pitchfork, TMZ] [Photo: Splash News]
We were totally shocked when we saw former “America’s Next Top Model” contest Jael Strauss — who’d appeared on Cycle 8 of the series — would be appearing on a “Dr. Phil” episode devoted to her drug abuse. Since appearing on the series six years ago, Jael’s life has taken a severely downward slide. She’s been addicted to meth, and her family begs her to get help during a harrowing Dr. Phil intervention. Jael hardly looks like the beautiful girl she was just six short years ago — with pockmarked skin and bleached blond locks, she appears much older and worn out than most other 28-year-olds.
We wish her the best and hope that Thursday’s episode of “Dr. Phil” gets her the help she needs. Jael is hardly the only reality TV star to slide into addiction — let’s review…
Cocaine could be the mysterious “something gigantic” being teased about the possible Prince Harry photos or videos that have yet to come out. Rats, I was hoping the “something gigantic” would be Hot Ginge’s royal scepter, not drugs. The New York Post reports an eyewitness reportedly saw guests in Prince Harry’s Las Vegas hotel suite snorting cocaine and that other people at the party were tripping on hallucinogenic mushrooms and “high on weed.” (No, not high on weed!) The source says the people in possession of the pictures/videos are skittish “they don’t want to be implicated for any illegal activities.” Which is a good concern to have. It should be noted that the Post claims Prince Harry was not seen using any drugs. Alas, even if “he didn’t inhale,” allegedly having having cocaine, shrooms, and the demon weed in his hotel room would look bad.
I’m still holding out that this is just an awful rumor and there are more naked pics on the way. [New York Post]
