Possibly this week!
On Friday Lindsay Lohan‘s mother Dina Lohan broke the news on The Today Show that L. Lo would likely be released from court-ordered rehab earlier than her 90 day sentence would require. On Saturday, the LA Times reported that it was possible that Lindsay would get sprung from rehab early and would serve out the rest of her 90 day sentence in an outpatient program. Today, TMZ reports that not only will Lindsay get released from rehab early but she might even get released this week!
Turns out Lindsay Lohan will indeed be getting out of the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Hospital … as early as this week, according to sources familiar with the situation. Our sources say Lindsay’s doctors have not written their final report, but they have already concluded her psychiatric problems are not nearly as severe as first thought. We’ve been told there were indications Lindsay was bipolar but that proved not to be the case. In addition, the doctors do not believe the drug dependency issues are as severe as first thought. As we reported, Lindsay had big issues with Adderall, but the docs don’t think it requires much more inpatient care. Bottom line … sources say it’s “very possible” Lindsay is getting out this week and will begin getting outpatient care. One obstacle — the judge must approve early release. We’re told once the doctors write their final report, Lindsay’s lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, can go back into court and ask the judge to spring her client from her 90-day rehab sentence. If the medical professionals think releasing her is a good idea, the judge will almost certainly go along with it.
Now that Judge Marsha Revel, the judge who sentenced Lindsay to 90 days in jail and 90 days in rehab, is NO LONGER the judge overseeing her case I’d bet very good money that the new judge will go along with the doctors’ recommendation and release her early back into the wild. I honestly thought that Lindsay stood a much great chance of success if she were forced to stay in medical care for 3 months but it sounds like that will not now happen. It seems very likely that L. Lo will soon be a free woman … which means she will, once again, be free to engage in the dangerous behavior that got her in trouble in the first place. I realize this sounds very pessimistic but nothing about Lindsay‘s life and the people she surrounds herself with (including her toxic parents) is at all conducive to a sober life. Such a shame … such a damn shame that this opportunity to really clean up her life is suddenly gone :(

Hila-rie say "I Do!" in SoCal
Last Thursday we learned from In Touch Weekly magazine that popstar/actress Hilary Duff was planning to marry her hockey-playing fiancee Mike Comrie in Santa Barbara, CA on Saturday evening … it turns out that they were 100% correct as Hila-rie actually did marry in SB on Saturday night! It’s official, y’all … Hilary and Mike got hitched!
Mike Comrie and Hilary Duff are now officially husband and wife. The actress, 22, and Canadian hockey player, 29, were married Saturday during an intimate ceremony in Santa Barbara, Calif. The couple exchanged vows at the Mediterranean Villa La Quinta around 8 p.m under an arch of flowers and in front of about 100 guests. “Mike held his arm around Hilary for most of the romantic, candlelit ceremony, and they both looked extremely happy,” says an eyewitness. The newlyweds spent their wedding night at the nearby historic San Ysidro Ranch … Comrie proposed during a Hawaiian getaway in February – a move that came as a pleasant surprise to both Duff and her family. “I’ve never met anyone who can say a bad word about him,” Duff gushed in March 2009. “He’s generous, caring and sunny. We just laugh our heads off.”
Yay!! This is fantastic news. It is CRAZY to me to think that little Lizzie Maguire is now a married woman but I am so happy that she has found the love of her life and is now happily hitched to him ;) After the jump, check out a couple of photos from Hilary and Mike’s wedding ceremony to get a taste of how the couple sealed the deal … More »

On Thursday we got our first look at Rihanna‘s newest tattoo … a French phrase she had inked onto her neck. Folks with en elementary knowledge of the French language noticed that Ri Ri‘s new tattoo seemed to be grammatically incorrect … so Rihanna decided to clarify and defend the spelling of her new tattoo:
Rihanna expected people would call her out on the content of her new rebelle fleur neck tattoo, OK Magazine says. Indeed, Gawker did just that, pointing out that in French, the adjective typically follows the noun. In a text message to her tattoo artist that was leaked to OK, the singer allegedly wrote, “rebelle fleur translates to rebel flower, NOT rebelious flower, its 2 nouns so in that case fleur does not HAVE to be first! Fyi, cuz they will ask.” (Rihanna, incidentally, is from Barbados, where the official language is English, with a local variation known as Bajan.) We have to say, despite RiRi’s explanation, and unfortunately having been trained in Spanish instead of French, we’re still confused — though an in-house Ministry source explains that rebelle can be either noun or adjective, plus technicalities aside, it’s a poetic expression, so the rules of grammar don’t always apply … if it were in fact Rihanna’s intention to proclaim that she’s both a rebel and a flower, perhaps a comma would have been in order? Maybe two tattoos? Or the words could have been stacked? We like to think we would’ve gone big and invoked the edgy slash: rebelle / fleur. Too bad we’re not rebels. Or, you know, flowers.
LOL. In the end, Rihanna get whatever the hell she wants tattooed on her body without having to explain or defend anything. Whether or not Rebelle Fleur is grammatically correct or not, she clearly likes the way it looks and sounds. While it’s true that some people do get misspelled tattoos on accident, I don’t believe this to be the case here. This seems more like a matter of poetic license rather than outright incorrect spelling/grammar. I say, let Rihanna be a rebel flower if she wants to!

Brings her hubby Souleye along as well
On Wednesday we learned the very happy news that singer/songwriter Alanis Morissette and hubby Mario Souleye Treadway are pregnant with their first child! On Thursday, we got our first look at Alanis and her just emerging baby bump. Today we get to see a few more photos of the happy couple out and about in SoCal taking their little bump out for a family stroll:
I don’t think I’ll ever tire of seeing Alanis look so happy. I am beyond thrilled that she is going to be a mom and I’m so happy that she found a man to share her happiness with. They are going to make the cutest babies … cuz I’m certain Alanis will not stop at just one little baby. The parents-to-be also got in a bit of parenting practice on their little stroll this week. Check out a cute pic of Alanis, Souleye and bump after the jump … More »
"I think Dina needs the rehab for her denial"
Yesterday we learned that Dina Lohan, fame hungry mother of the currently rehabbing Lindsay Lohan, gave a pretty horrendous interview on The Today Show where she was asked to talk about her daughter’s troubles with the law and with substance abuse and she, instead, used the platform to blame everybody BUT Lindsay for her woes. In response, Lindsay‘s equally fame hungry estranged father (and ex-husband to Dina) Michael Lohan is speaking out to counter Dina‘s comments on the Today Show. I hate to admit it but I actually agree with the man for once:
“I think Dina needs the rehab for her denial, lies and other ‘things’. It was one lie after another. Dina was never a Rockette and her mother was NEVER on a soap or radio (show me where) … my son is NOT doing a movie Dina is producing. Linds needs Family therapy with Dina and me. Something that has been recommended by professionals for years but Dina won’t. It’s all about money and controlling Lindsay and my kids to Dina when she has failed miserably and it should be about our childrens well being. Dina and I caused this and WE need to fix it (AS PARENTS). It’s sad that Dina would continue on this course at the risk our children and God she does try to stop me from seeing then. I do and have seen them recently, but I might have to bring her back to court and even CPS, as I have court ordered visitation and Dina neglects our other minor children. Dina needs the rehab. And maybe jail would “suit” her. The only thing Dina got right in the interview is, “NOTHING HAS CHANGED”. To that I agree. As long as Dina is in denial, if Lindsay comes out on ANY prescription drugs, if Dina AND Lindsay associate themselves with any of the same people and if WE don’t get family therapy. MY Bet is, this was only a band aid.”
As much as I loathe Michael Lohan and pretty much everything he stands for, I have to say that I wholeheartedly agree with a couple of Michael‘s comments here. Yes, absolutely, both he and Dina “caused” Lindsay‘s initial troubles and yes, they need to do everything they can to fix it. I also agree that Dina might benefit from rehab herself … tho, I too would LOVE to see her thrown in jail for being a bad parent … that is very unlikely to happen. It pains me to think that Lindsay may get out of her court-ordered 90 day rehab stint early because she will just be released back into the toxic and dangerous environment that is another cause of her problems. After the jump, find out just how soon Lindsay may get released and under what circumstances … More »

It’s been a few weeks since we’ve checked in on the Michigan set of the upcoming sequel film Scream 4 … when last we saw photos from the set, we got to check out an official photo, shared by director Wes Craven, of the ghostface killer filming a scene for the movie. Today we get to see a few photos from recent production where scenes were being filmed inside one of the houses on set … and as you can see in the last photo, it looks like the ghostface killer is doing his biz in the scene:
The cast and crew of “Scream 4″ are still busy shooting the film and more sneak peeks have been obtained from the set. Banana Doc has posted a lot of fresh set pictures, capturing the filming of Emma Roberts and Hayden Panettiere’s scene in a house in Ann Arbor. During the night filming, Panettiere was spotted answering a phone in the second-floor room of the house. Later, standing on the same spot like her co-star did, Roberts was seen staring at something or someone outside from the upper window … Emma Roberts is cast in “Scream 4″ to play Jill, one of the film’s primary heroines. Meanwhile, Hayden Panettiere will be seen as a nerdy film geek Kirby who is a best friend of Jill. Original cast members reprising their roles in the upcoming film include Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette.
There is one more photo to share … but because it may be a bit spoilery, I thought it would be best to keep it behind the cut. After the jump, check out another photo from the Scream 4 set … More »

Instead, the job may go to Shania Twain
After hearing last month that Jennifer Lopez was close to signing on as one of the judges on the Fox reality TV series American Idol, we learned earlier this week that Fox decided to pass on bringing J. Lo on as an AI judge reportedly because her diva demands got too out of control. In the wake of all the talk of Jennifer‘s “firing” from a job she never really had in the first place, J. Lo posted an image on her official Twitter profile that seems to suggest that she is not at all upset that she won’t be judging American Idol … apparently because she is too bizzy deciding with of her numerous diamonds to wear:
Along with this photo, J. Lo tweeted Hmmm… what should I wear today? which, IMHO, suggests to her numerous Twitter followers that she’s got more important things to do than worry about judging one of the most popular TV shows in America right now. To that I say, Yeah right. But, I guess we won’t have to keep ourselves up at night worrying about J. Lo and her bank account. La Diva Latina is swimming in diamonds, there is no need to worry about her at all.
In any event, now that Jennifer Lopez is deffo out … TMZ is reporting that Fox has an ace replacement idea up their sleeve … and her name is Shania Twain. Read more, after the jump … More »
Judge Walker lifts the stay on his ruling
Last week Federal Judge Vaughn R. Walker ruled that California Proposition 8, which made same-sex marriage illegal in the State, is unconstitutional which makes same-sex marriage legal in the State once again. After his ruling, Judge Walker issued a stay of his ruling in order to hear pro and con arguments to determine if same-sex marriages should resume in California while the case moves forward in appeals. Today, Judge Walker has made a ruling to lift the stay on his initial federal decision … which means that same-sex couples will be allowed to remarry in California starting on August 18, when his initial ruling goes into legal effect.
Once again, California is among the States here in the US that offers all of its citizens marriage equality. Let freedom reign!!!

The troubled Broadway musical has been pushed back again
First we heard the strange but true news that Spider-Man was being adapted for the Broadway musical stage then we heard that the show was put on hold due to technical complications and lack of funding … then we heard that the show was being canceled before we heard that show composer Bono of U2 decided to fund the production so that it could move forward … THEN we heard that the show, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark would FINALLY be opening in November (instead of February of this year). But today we learn that the show has been pushed back again … to December … but the good news (?) is that it is still set to open. The LA Times did a piece on the show and brings us our first look at one of the sets for this troubled yet still alive Spider-Man musical:
Is this for real? After delays and numerous rumors of shutdowns and financial problems, Broadway’s new “Spider-Man” musical has announced a new official opening date in December. The production, directed by Julie Taymor and featuring music by Bono and the Edge, will begin preview performances at the newly renamed Foxwoods Theatre (formerly the Hilton Theatre) on Nov. 14 and will open on Dec. 21. “Spider-Man” was originally supposed to open in February, but the escalating cost of the musical — which is said to be the most expensive ever on Broadway — caused the production to be pushed back. Tickets for “Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark” are set to go on sale to the general public in September, but no specific date was given. Organizers also announced new cast members for the blockbuster production. Tony nominee Jennifer Damiano will play the role of Mary Jane Watson, taking over from Evan Rachel Wood, and Patrick Page will play the Green Goblin, a role that was previously going to be played by Alan Cumming. Damiano received a Tony nomination last year for her supporting role in the musical “Next to Normal.” Reeve Carney is still on board to play the lead role of Peter Parker. The cast is scheduled to begin full rehearsals on Aug. 16.
The set above is of the stage-version of the Oscorp Laboratory … which looks kinda cool, I guess. Thru all of this back and forth over whether or not the show was going to open or not, I’ve still not been able to wrap my head around a musical based on the Spider-Man mythos. As much as I would love for it to be a huge hit (and it very well could be, with Julie Tamor at the helm), I fear it will fail as a silly production that cost way too much to produce. There are some amazing Broadway shows that were forced to close early due to financial difficulties that cost far less to produce than Spider-Man. I honestly have a hard time believing early ticket sales will be able to justify the show’s survival … BUT, all that being said, I absolutely want to see this show and will eat my words HAPPILY if Turn Off the Dark turns out to be a hit. But, just to be safe, I hope to be able to see the show while it is still in previews. I deffo want to see Spider-Man come to life on the musical stage. And I really want it to be good. HMMMM.
