What do you give to a recently released convict? In the case of Lindsay Lohan you can start with a dozen or so eggs. According to a report filed at the Nassau County Police Department and discovered by TMZ that’s exactly what happened when unidentified vandals approached her home on August 31st and threw eggs at her front door.
One week after that incident the train wreck of a stars mailbox was ripped out of the ground.
At this time authorities don’t know if the two cases are tied together in some way, but more important, who files a police report over an egging? The mailbox vandalism I understand, but seriously for an egging? She’d probably do the same thing for a bit of T.P.
Dina Lohan chimed in, stating that she didn’t know who did it, but really she probably just wanted to hear herself talk.

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino may be a household name among reality TV fans and sure he’s one of the highest paid reality TV stars of all time, with earnings expected to top $5 million by the end of 2010, but apparently his “The Situation” nickname mixed with his fame wasn’t enough for him to be granted a trademark on his popular name.
The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) rejected Mike’s request for “The Situation” name. According to TheSmokingGun.com Sorrentino hoped to trademark the name and then release a T-Shirt line.
According to USPTO, a trademark that was too similar to his own was issued to a Memphis-based clothing and shoe line in 2009.

Here’s the best rumor we’ve heard yet about Lady Gaga, apparently a woman is claiming that her late daughters soul has possessed Gaga, allowing her to take the music industry by storm. It turns out the woman’s daughter was also a musician.
Yana Morgana has asked for the right to release dozens of songs that Gaga recorded with her daughter before she committed suicide in 2008 at the age of 19. She says her daughter Liina Morgana inspired Gaga’s fashion sense and persona from her wigs, boots and even as PopEater puts it her “tortured persona.”
“Every other word she says is from Lina,” Morgana told the New York Post. “She talks about having a dark and tragic life, but she had everything she wanted in the world.”

The Smith family keeps pushing out pint-sized stars, this time it’s Willow Smith, the daughter of Will and Jada. Willow has a song called “Whip My Hair!” which is believed to be the first song off her upcoming freshman album debut.

I have a deep rooted hatred for the completely industry manufactured Ke$ha or as I like to call her “Lady BlahBlah” because she wants to be Lady Gaga but has no intelligent lyrics to match that want. Now a video which has surfaced from a 2001 high school band camp proves my point, she’s nothing but a made up industry wanker who changed her entire image to sell some albums.
Don’t get me wrong, some of her songs get stuck in my head, but really it’s like a bad hit of crack that I just can’t get over. Watch as she dances horribly and gets pretty much no attention…even from the geeky band boys. Read the rest of this entry »

Danielle Staub has added some of the craziest (bitchiest) moments we’ve seen on The Real Housewives of New Jersey but that will no longer be the case, with Bravo announcing on Monday that she will no longer be part of the shows lineup.

Bravo’s Senior Vice President of Original Programming and Development Andy Cohen said of her departure:

I’m placing this one firmly on the unverified rumors back burner, but it appears Katy Perry, the girl happy to sing about being a California gurl, may soon be a British citizen.
It’s no secret that Perry is set to marry British comedian Russell Brand next month and now insiders are saying she’ll become a British citizen to fully embrace her husbands country.
In the least, Perry will have to receive dual-citizenship so she can stay for extended periods in England with her hilarious hubby.

She said of Levi “He’s changed. Night and day, definitely,” adding “The guy I fell in love with was a hard-working Alaskan man that didn’t want to wear straight-legged jeans and get chased by Radar.” Read the rest of this entry »

The Admiral Twin, a landmark drive-in movie theater in Tulsa, Oklahoma was playing “The Last Exorcism” this week when the theater caught on fire and burned down.
The Tulsa Fire Department told the Tulsa World on Friday night that they were still unaware of how the fire first started. The theater has been showing movies since it opened in 1951.
TMZ thinks it was possessed by a demon or perhaps visited by Satan, which may explain why the only thing that appeared to stay in place was the sign for the movie about exorcisms.
