Michael Lohan objects!
Lindsay Lohan‘s life just keeps getting more interesting … not only has she seemingly NOT ceased her partying ways despite being freshly released from rehab, not only has her estranged father moved all the way across the country so that he can live closer to Lindsay in order to try and infiltrate her life … but NOW she is learning that she has another sister, fathered by Michael Lohan as a result of a brief love affair in the early 90′s. Life & Style magazine has all the deets:
Just a week after Lindsay Lohan was released from jail, an unexpected family member is reaching out to help, claiming she is the stars long-last half sister! Life & Style has exclusively obtained the birth certificate of 15-yr-old Ashley Horn — and it names Linday’s father, Michael Lohan, as her dad. Ashley’s mother, Kristi –who had a brief affair with Michael in the early 1990’s while he was married to (but separated from) Dina–came forward with their story in 2008, but Michael denied that he was the father. “In December 2008 we had a court hearing that Michael was ordered to appear at for the DNA testing,” Kristi tells Life & Style. When Michael didn’t show (he says he was on probation and couldn’t travel), a judge ruled that his name could be added to the birth certificate. But Michael is still denying that he’s Ashley’s father, telling Life & Style, “I’d be glad to take a DNA test!” Kristi also claims that Michael owes a staggering $300,000 in back child support (a ruling his lawyers are contesting). Now, Lindsay Lohan’s not the only one ripping into Michael for not being there for his family. “I do not trust him, and I don’t want to be around him or part of his life,” Ashley tells Life & Style. “I could never call Michael Lohan ‘Dad.’ A dad is a person who is there for you and takes care of you.” Ashley says she wanted to reach out to Lindsay this summer when the star was in jail and rehab, but having no ties to the family made it impossible. “I wanted to help Lindsay in some way, but what was I supposed to do?” Ashley tells Life & Style. “I don’t even know how to contact her.”
In response to this story by L&S, Daddy Lohan is telling TMZ that Ashley is not his daughter … and he is willing to go to Maury Povich to prove that she is not:
Michael Lohan is trying to put an end to allegations he fathered an illegitimate daughter 15 years ago … and to clear his name, he’s turning to the expert in daddy DNA drama — Maury Povich. Sources tell TMZ … Lohan is currently talking to “Maury” producers about going on the show and taking a paternity test to prove he never impregnated Kristi Kaufmann … who claims she had an affair with Mike in the ’90s. Lohan tells TMZ Kaufmann has demanded child support in the past … and even changed the child’s birth certificate to bear Michael’s last name … which would make the kid Lindsay adjacent.
I mean, how much more trashy can all of this get? Wait a minute, don’t answer that … I’m afraid we may find out. If I were Ashley Horn, I’d want to keep news that Michael Lohan was my father a HUGE secret. UGH. Trust me, Ashley … you do NOT want to actually become a Lohan.
Romeo James Beckham celebrated his 8th birthday yesterday in SoCal and did so with a fun game of Laser Tag with his entire family! Les Beckhams, David and Victoria, funded the fete and invited a select group of Romeo‘s friends for a day of family fun … here are a few photos:
The Beckhams entered a futuristic world of lasers and mazes to celebrate their son Romeo’s eight birthday yesterday. Victoria and David took their family along to the Ultrazone amusement centre Los Angeles, with the likes of Heidi Klum and Seal bringing their brood along to join in the fun. However it is quite possible that Victoria, in her tottering high heels, might have decided to sit the game out. The venue boasts a 5,000 square feet multi-level arena. Players have to run around and laser each other to score points. Romeo’s brother Brooklyn, 11,and five-year-old Cruz were, of course, in on the action. Victoria, 35, was snapped outside the venue with the family, wearing a bright green dress. The front of the building was decked out with a masses of yellow balloons and guests could be seen milling around enjoying the spread laid on.
It turns out that Heidi Klum, Seal and their children were also in attendance at yesterday’s party … which sounds like it was a total blast! In birthdays past, Romeo has had karate parties, costume parties and pizza parties. I think a game of Laser Tag sounds like a lot of fun. Let’s send all our birthday lurve to the middle Beckham child … here’s hoping his 8th year will be his best yet!

Guy Ritchie and his Madonna-like girlfriend Jacqui Ainsley, who we got to meet back in April of this year, were spotted enjoying a bit of family fun with his sons Rocco John and David Banda in London, England this week. As you can see, Guy‘s boys seem to be very fond of Jacqui … who is lookin’ more and more like Madonna every day:
It is not uncommon to see Madonna, toy boy Jesus Luz and her children out together, getting in to their chauffeured cars or leaving the Kabbalah centre in New York. So there is a little the superstar can say about the images of Guy and his new girlfriend Jacqui Ainsley enjoying a family dinner with her children Rocco and David. Five-year-old David looks to have taken a shine to the pop queen’s 28-year-old replacement, and was seen clinging to her as they walked down the street. Once inside the restaurant, the little boy insisted on sitting on Jacqui’s lap throughout the meal. Dressed in an understated outfit of jeans, biker boots and an elegant Chanel handbag, Jacqui smiled as David wrapped his arms around her waist outside the restaurant. Ten-year-old Rocco looked equally charmed, laughing as he skateboarded in front of them, and a smiling Guy looked happy to see his young girlfriend bonding with his children. It seemed the ink had barely dried on her divorce papers from Guy Ritchie when Madonna was playing happy families with the 23-year-old, but even so, the images are bound to hurt the 52-year-old a little.
Nah, I doubt that Madge is feeling any pangs of pain over seeing these kinds of photos … after all, she was the one who moved on first and I’m certain she is not losing any sleep over Guy and his new lady. I’m actually not at all surprised to see Rocco and David look so enamored of Guy‘s new ladylove … after all, she looks almost exactly like their mother! I’m just happy to see that the kids all seem pretty well-adjusted following the break-up of their parent’s marriage. Whether they’re with their mother Madonna and Jesus Luz or with their father Guy Ritchie and Jacqui Ainsley, all of the kids seem really happy and secure … and that is all that matters.

Feel the Lurve
It’s been a couple of months since we last checked in with Buffyverse family Alyson Hannigan, Alexis Denisof and their beautiful babygirl Satyana but the fam ventured out here in SoCal this weekend to do a bit of shopping at the Brentwood Country Mart. As you can see in these adorable photos, Aly was heapin’ all kinds of love on her growing little girl Saty:
I cannot even believe how big Satyana is already … even if you compare these photos to the ones we saw in June she looks bigger. I love the little pigtails … she is an utter doll. I just love this family so much … I can’t wait to see the next batch of family photos :)

Last Friday we got to see a supercute photo of former Real Housewives of NYC star Bethenny Frankel with her beautiful baby girl Bryn Casey in their NYC apt. Today we get to see mother and child catchin’ some rays on the beach this week … naturally, cuteness ensues:
It’s only been three months since she gave birth to her daughter Bryn, but Bethenny Frankel has managed to shed every inch of her extra baby weight. The Real Housewives of New York star showed off her slim figure and perfectly flat stomach, as she hit a beach in New York state. Clad in a low cut turquoise bikini, the 39-year-old reality star looked happy and relaxed as she carried her three-month-old baby. Mother and daughter both wore hats to protect themselves from the sun. Frankel, who gave birth to Bryn five weeks early on May 8, puts her slim figure down to a low fat diet and an active lifestyle. ‘I’ve really been eating, just not like a crazy person,’ she told Life & Style magazine, adding that she sticks to small portions and works out to her Body by Bethenny yoga DVD. ‘Sometimes it’ll take me the whole day to get through it,’ she told the mag. ‘I do what I can when I can a couple of times a week’ … Fans of Frankel, who is married to real estate broker Jason Hoppy, will be sad to learn she will not be returning Real Housewives for the next season. Instead, she will continue with a second series of her own spin-off show after last year’s Bethenny Getting Married? was a ratings triumph.
Yes, sadly, Bethenny will not return for the next season of The Real Housewives of NYC but we can look forward to another season of her very own Bravo TV reality show. While the NYC Housewives will be going at it again in a jumbled mess of drama, Bethenny will be secluded from all that nonsense on her very own show … so, yeah, she wins. I don’t think I could ever get tired of seeing little baby Bryn … I’m so glad that we will get to see more of the little miss on a new season of Bethenny Getting Married? Isn’t she just the cutest little thing? Love her :D
Earlier today we got to see some fabulous photos of Britney Spears and her man Jason Trawick lookin’ all kinds of hot and sexy on a beach in Hawaii yesterday afternoon. Right now we get to see photos of Britney‘s sons Sean Preston and Jayden James enjoying their own corner of the beach in Santa Barbara, CA yesterday:
As I mentioned earlier, while Britwick were enjoying some alonetime in Hawaii yesterday the kiddies were in the care of Britney‘s parents Lynne and Jamie Spears. After the jump, check out a few more photos of Sean P. and JJ chillin’ with their proud grandparents in SB yesterday … More »
"I ... feel stronger than I ever have"
On Monday we learned that the marriage between Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren was officially over as the terms of their very public divorce was made final. As you may recall, we learned earlier this year just how horribly Woods treated his wife Nordegren by cheating on her so publicly (and with so many different women) and just a few months later, the couple are no longer married … Tiger is a lot poorer and Elin is a lot richer. Today for the first time since the Tiger Woods Cheating Scandal came to light, Elin Nordegren is telling her side of the story to People magazine. Here is our first look at Elin‘s People mag cover and some excerpts from her coverstory interview:
Her divorce is final and she’s ready to talk. Elin Nordegren breaks her nine-month silence in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE magazine. “I have been through the stages of disbelief and shock, to anger and ultimately grief over the loss of the family I so badly wanted for my children,” she says in the magazine’s latest issue, out just days after her split from Tiger Woods was made official. The 30-year-old mother of two, who is studying towards a college degree in psychology, says that despite her husband’s betrayal, “I also feel stronger than I ever have. I have confidence in my beliefs, my decisions and myself.” In 19 hours over four visits to her Windermere, Fla., rental home, Nordegren shared never-before-seen personal photographs and opened up to PEOPLE about the emotional roller coaster she’s been on, her life as a mother to Sam, 3, and Charlie, 19 months, and her hopes for the future. “My immediate plan is for the kids and me to continue to adjust to our new situation. I am going to keep taking classes, but my main focus is to try to give myself time to heal,” she says. She tells the magazine this was her first – and last – interview, as she intends to remain a private person.
I’m actually very surprised that this interview even exists … not because I know how private a person Elin Nordegren is but because I was certain the terms of her divorce from Tiger Woods would insist that she never speak publicly about what went down between them. It does not surprise me in the least that Elin vows that this will be her first and last public interview about her failed marriage to the infidelitous Tiger Woods. After the jump, check out a couple photos of Elin with her kids Sam Alexis and Charlie Axel near their home in Orlando, FL and read a few more excerpts from her People magazine interview — including her take on what happened on that fateful Thanksgiving night when Tiger got into the car crash that brought all of his cheating to light … More »
Marijuana leaves, really?
Madonna‘s 13 year old daughter Lourdes Maria was spotted on the London set of the film W.E. (which is being directed by her mother) this week and she was spotted wearing a very interesting wrist band accessory:
Yes that is a marijuana leaf on Lola‘s Rastafarian wristband … and just because she is wearing it, does not mean that she is a smoker. Kids actually wear these sorts of things, procured at places like Hot Topic, because they look cool not because they are trying to advertise their love of marijuana. Still, it would be naive to think that a 13 year old kid — especially one as famous as Madonna‘s — would have no knowledge of recreational drug use. I tend to look on the more positive side of things and will assume that this wristband is just an innocent if inappropriate fashion accessory. Still, I doubt this sort of thing will be sold as part of the Material Girl accessories line. What do y’all think … is this innocent or something more?

On Saturday we saw a few photos of David and Victoria Beckham chillin’ at their summer beach house together in Santa Monica, CA. Today we get to see new photos from Les Beckhams‘s ongoing Summer share at the beach … here is Becks welcoming you in with open, er, arms:
Le sigh. How can you NOT want to see more when you’ve got Becks looking so … welcoming. After the jump, check out a few cute photos of the Beckham Bunch looking all lovey-dovey in Santa Monica yesterday … More »
Les Beckhams hang out with Les Ramsays
David Beckham rounded up his entire family — including wife Victoria Beckham and 3 sons Brooklyn Joseph, Romeo James and Cruz David — for a fun outing at Universal Studios here at Universal City yesterday afternoon. The Beckham bunch hung out all afternoon with celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay and his family … possibly because Becks was trying to hire his BFF to become his family’s new chef … word is, Becks is trying to save some money by downsizing his personal staff:
Victoria and David Beckham have slashed their workforce after the celebrity couple was warned they were wasting huge amounts of money on surplus staff. The former Spice Girl and her soccer superstar husband are estimated to be worth $172 million and have a string of homes around the world, including properties in England, Los Angeles, France and Dubai. Each of the houses is said to have an independent workforce, but the singer-turned-designer has decided to scale back on number of workers in the couple’s employment following a stern warning from an accountant. According to Britain’s The Sun, the couple has dismissed six gardeners from their French chateau, a long term cleaner at their estate in Hertfordshire, England and six chauffeurs. A source tells the publication, “This very no-nonsense accountant gave it to Vic straight and said, ‘You can afford to employ all of these people. But why the hell do you?’ ” “Once the accountant pointed out that level of staffing was not required Vic pushed the button. There has been a large downsize. David and Victoria are multi-millionaires but that doesn’t mean they have to waste money – and they were hemorrhaging it.”
HMMM … it sounds like Les Beckhams are actually being frugal for once … which sounds wise. As for these photos, I love them! Both David and Victoria spend as much of their free time with their children as possible and it’s entirely darling. We rarely see them hanging out with their friends and even when they do (like they did yesterday at Universal) they often like to bring their kiddies along. Cute!
