I’m fully convinced that Michael Lohan’s headline-making domestic violence arrest yesterday was copied straight out of Mel Gibson’s playbook. Of course, Mel’s famed blowouts were uniquely terrible because some of them were directed towards the teenage son of ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. Last month, Mel paid $100,000 to Oksana’s 14-year-old for the guarantee that he wouldn’t sue the once-respected actor for reportedly “terrorizing” him during altercations with his mother. That’s low, even for Mel Gibson. Additionally, his own toddler daughter with Grigorieva bore witness to a number of her father’s detonations.
It’s hard to top this sh**ty parenting, but surprise, surprise, more than a few celebs come come! After the jump, six more celebrities who I definitely wouldn’t want for a dad.
Remember Kim Granatell of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey“? She was that friend who was by Danielle Staub‘s side for the great weave-pulling incident of 2010. Well apparently, she has a new beau and it’s none other than Michael Lohan, dad of Lindsay. According to Kim, they have been dating since January. “I just got back from making out with Michael in Florida,” she told the New York Post. “He’s got a very big heart. He’s a great guy.”

Egads. Michael Lohan is in the news again and it isn’t for something cute like announcing he’s engaged to Jon Gosselin’s ex. Nope, Michael has been charged with three counts of domestic violence—inflicting corporal injury on a cohabitant, false imprisonment and preventing a report of victimization. “Mr. Lohan was arrested after we received a call around 9 p.m. regarding a domestic dispute,” an officer explained. “He was detained after he was spotted walking on the street near our station. He showed no signs of intoxication that I’m aware of and has been cooperative.” His bail has been set at $200,000. [People]
This is hardly Michael’s first run-in with the law. After the jump, a timeline. Keep reading »
We knew they were on something. We won’t get to see White House party crashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi on “The Real Housewives of DC” anymore but, apparently, the two are not ready to leave reality television behind. And so, they have signed on for the new season of “Celebrity Rehab” with Dr. Drew. Which leads us to the obvious question: What was their substance of choice?!?! Tell us, VH1, tell us.
According to reports, they will be joined on the show by actress/red carpet disaster Bai Ling, former Mets pitcher Dwight Gooden, and “Baywatch” actor Jeremy Jackson. Oh, and Michael Lohan. Keep reading »
