Lindsay Lohan has had a hell of a week. First, her dad Michael Lohan tried to stage an intervention, and asked that Lindsay’s estate be placed under conservatorship. And just days later, Lohan got her panties in a bunch over the presidential debate. Linz, who has previously said she would vote for Romney, watched the debate on pins and needles. Check out her anxiety-filled and delusional tweets above!
Jess is out sick today, so I’ve collected links for Today’s Lady News. I’ve used a quote from each piece as a brief summary (rather than interpreting myself) and you can click further to read more if it interests you. We’ll be back to your regularly scheduled Lady News tomorrow!
- “[During the debates] KitchenAid took to its official Twitter page to try and make light of the President mentioning his grandma, Madelyn Lee Payne Dunham, and tweeted the following: “Obamas gma even knew it was going 2 b bad! ‘She died 3 days b4 he became president’.” [Madame Noire]

Still feeling the Rocky Mountain High from the first Presidential debate? We sure are. Others will fact check — we can’t — we’re dumb. Think of us as “fun checkers.” Isn’t that adorbz? Anyway, here are the five flat-out dumbest moments of the night with our ribbing for your pleasure:

While addressing a church crowd in Greenville, S.C., the potential first First Man suggested that he “kind of liked to see Barack and Hillary fight.” Whoa there tiger!

Now that kind of smack down action would put the “raise” in fund-raising! So let’s fill up a kiddie pool and call it the next Democratic Debate. Bill Clinton still knows what the American people want! [The Huffington Post] Keep reading »
