New Republic Working Hard to Get Its Calls Through to Iraq / Jossip:

"“Now that these questions have been raised, we’ve launched an inquiry.
We’re putting the full resources of the magazine to look into the story,” Mr.
Foer said. “It’s taking me a little bit longer than I wish it did. The author,
not to mention some of the participants in the anecdotes he described, are
active duty soldiers and they’re on 20-hour active combat missions sometimes,
and it’s very difficult for me to get them all on the phone to ask them the
questions that I’d like to ask.”"

The New Republic is responding to claims that a recent number of stories set in Iraq have been at least partially made up is responding with an investigation. The editor of course is in a sticky situation, if he doesn't look into the accuracy of the story, it looks like the magazine doesn't care. If the editor does find something, and reveals it, then it is going to be a critical hit on the image of the magazine. This is the same magazine that is still getting over the Stephen Glass scandal.

"First on TVNewser: Paula Zahn has resigned from CNN. Zahn hosted CNN's 8pm ET
program, Paula Zahn Now.
The departure comes just one day after Campbell Brown signed on with CNN. TVNewser joined a conference call around this time yesterday, in which CNN/U.S. president Jon Klein introduced Brown as his network's newest on-air hire. Klein promised an announcement about Brown's primetime program would be made 'over the next several days.'"

While there is no indication of what her plans are after this, I wish her the best in her career. I think that she has good skills as a journalist, and can land a position with another company.

Arrest Is No Set Back For Lohan’s Career

I’m Not Obsessed: Arrest Is No Set Back For Lohan’s Career

"“Bowline Entertainment is standing behind Lindsay. Lindsay is insured for the
movie as of now.”"

The arrest doesn't seem to bother the company that is behind her next film. The above was released to express support for Lohan, stating that she is still being planned for the movie. Of course if she gets time in the slammer, and it puts off the production a couple years, that could change.

"“I am sick over this. My children, my family, we are like prisoners in our
own home because paparazzi [are stalking us] outside [our] home. Lindsay is in a
safe place. And we are trying to strategically work out our next step. We are
doing everything in our power in support of Lindsay and I won’t give up — this
is my daughter and we love her. We are waiting for the press frenzy to die down
and leave her alone. And please respect our privacy.”"

Her mother speaks.... While this isn't a statement that she isn't in rehab, it also isn't a statement that she is. It doesn't sounds like she is though, I looked back at the source for the story that she was in rehab and it looks like it came from TMZ, which is a solid source, but this is a fast moving story and there are always mistakes when you are against the clock. I hope that she will get the help that she needs.

about how he and Dina need to put the past behind them to help their daughter
and that he is partly to blame for her downward spiral because of his past

"Sources connected to Lindsay tell TMZ both Lindsay, who was driving a
Denali, and the Escalade in front of her, driven by the mother of Lindsay's
former assistant, were both being chased in a 'unsafe and threatening' manner."

Sounds like Lohan's people are working to spin this story, even if this is true, which is doubtful, it doesn't explain the drinking and the drugs. If there were someone chasing both of them, wouldn't that be the first thing they would have told the police? Sounds like they went home and are trying to cook up a story to make Lindsay look better. After all, that is their job.

"In addition to staying away from Lindsay, the Parole Board ordered
Michael to keep his distance from Lindsay's lawyer, Blair Berk. We're told the
order was issued after Michael made 'repeated, unreciprocated contacts' with
Lindsay and Berk."

It looks like he won't be paying his dear child a visit in rehab.

Lohan's gran: 'We love LiLo' INF Daily:

"Everyone is worried about trainwreck Lindsay Lohan after she was busted on
drink and drugs charges in LA earlier today...and that includes her dear old
grandma. We caught up with Lindsay's nanna as she left the family home in Long
Island and she even had time to stop to say a few words about her troubled

This is the story of the week for sure. The video doesn't really get much, some reporter/photographer waiting at the bottom of Lohan's grandparents driveway to ask stupid questions like, are you worried about her. I still want to know where her mom is.

"Sources have confirmed to 'The Insider' that LINDSAY LOHAN is currently in
Los Angeles, but is not in rehab, despite reports to the contrary."

Well she should be in rehab, and if she is smart she is making plans for rehab. It is hard to know who is the better source here, we will have to wait it out. I will try and dig up a source for the claim she is in rehab.

Does OK! Not Have Those Awesome Britney Spears Photos Everyone’s Been Talking About? / Jossip

Does OK! Not Have Those Awesome Britney Spears Photos Everyone’s Been Talking About? / Jossip:

"OK! has no Britney exclsuive [sic] photos and the interview’s bad…no real
revelations. Sarah Ivens is trying to make herself look good in front of her
bosses as her ass is on the line because sales are poor. Richard Desmond’s
pumping millions into it but news stand sales struggle to get above 400,000. No
one wants to advertise in the magazine. He’s losing patience with Ivens. She’s
planning her exit strategy by putting out stories about herself."

So all the talk about the pictures and the scene that Britney made while doing the photo shoot is likely not true. It looks like it was put out there by the editor of the rag because they had no good shots of Britney and the interview didn't turn out good. I can understand how the interview would fail, this is Britney Spears we are talking about, she doesn't have any secrets that she can share anymore.

Looks like the shame is going to be falling on the editor of OK instead of on Britney.

B's Poetry Pages: Allen Ginsberg:

"I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked,
dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix,
angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to thestarry dynamo in the machinery of night,
who poverty and tatters and hollow-eyed and high sat up smoking in the supernatural
darkness of cold-water fiats 'doating across the tops of cities contemplating jazz,
who bared their brains to Heaven under the El and saw Mohammedan angels staggering on tenement roofs illuminated, "

X17 XCLUSIVE - Paris on Lindsay: That Sucks! (X17 Online):

"At least we think that's what she said when we ran into the heiress outside of
a studio (recording? acting?) in North Hollywood this morning. At first, the
ex-con claimed not to have any knowledge of Lindsay's recent troubles (Do you
believe that? Yeah, we didn't either.), but when we explained the situation to
her, we thought we caught a barely audible 'sucks'! Maybe jail really has
changed Paris for the better!"

There really isn't much of a response from Paris in the video, but you can watch it.

"Update 1: Is the Betty Ford Clinic in Palm Springs Lohan’s newest rehab
destination? It’s 115 miles east of Los Angeles making it an ideal location to
escape the prying eyes of the paparazzi and keep her friends, hanger-ons, and
enablers at bay."

I am just going to declare that this is the Lindsay Lohan blog now...

You always hope that when someone goes into rehab that it creates the change in their life that they need. While Lohan has been in and out of rehab, she has fallen into the same traps over and over again. Betty Ford seems to have a better record than Promises, lets hope that it helps Lohan.

At this point with jail in her future, going to rehab is no doubt an attempt to escape the public spot light as it is to attempt healing. I honestly wish her well.

Dori's Story (X17 Online)

Dori's Story (X17 Online):

"Thanks to our commenter Ambrosia for identifying Lindsay Lohan's Sunday-night
companion as fallen socialite Dori Cooperman - as it turns out, Dori's got quite
a backstory of her own! According to the New York Post, apparently the Gothamite
(and onetime friend of infamous publicist Lizzie Grubman) found herself on the
outside of the Big Apple's social circle after attempting to cash a check
written to someone else without their consent. Cooperman subsequently entered
into a rehab facility in Arizona seeking help with alcohol and prescription
drugs - only to check out soon after to check into Promises, where she quickly
ingrained herself in Lindsay's new life! Unfortunately, this gave Dori a
front-row seat for Lindsay's epic return to tragic form which (hopefully!)
culminated last night. "

Did Dori have a bad influence on Lindsay that caused her to relapse. According to all reports Lohan had been doing well in her recovery. Could it have been her friendship with this lady that put her off track, it sounds like the trouble has started just in the last couple days.

X17 is promising a video from Paris talking about the arrest, I will link it when it posts.

Michael Lohan wants to help!? | INF Daily

Michael Lohan wants to help!? INF Daily:

"As if he hasn't done enough already, Michael Lohan now wants to step in to
save his daughter from her demons. Michael's attorneys exclusively told INF this
morning that he is 'deeply upset right now' at the news of LiLo's arrest for
felony drug possession and DUI last night. Recovering alcoholic Michael, who's
currently locked in a bitter Family Court battle with Lohan's mom, says he wants
to put their differences aside for the sake of Lindsay and the other kids.
Sounds like too little, too late to us."

This girl needs help from someone who cares about her, while he is saying these things now that the camera is on him, where has he been the last couple weeks. I don't trust anyone in the Lohan family (except Ali and Dakota), and I don't think that Lindsay should either.

New Bar Scene for Lohan? - TMZ.com

New Bar Scene for Lohan? - TMZ.com:

"Judges don't take kindly to arrestees whose crimes occur so close together --
so it's quite possible that the proverbial book will be thrown at her. In a
worst case scenario, Lilo could face SIX YEARS in jail!"

This of course is the worst that could happen. It is true that judges don't favor those who have priors, and very recent priors. I doubt she will get the six years, but even if she gets half the time, three years it could spell her end. It would not only brand her in as trouble, but three years away from the media is three years for another star to develop and for the industry to forget about her.

I don't enjoy saying this, but this honestly could be the end of her career.

unbelievably ugly!

In an exclusive statement to TMZ, OK! Editor-in-Chief
Sarah Ivens said, 'OK! Magazine spent a heartbreaking day with Britney Spears
and witnessed first-hand an emotional cry for help that will leave you shocked
and sad. This week, on newsstands Friday, the truth will be told.'"

"'Addiction is a terrible and vicious disease. Since Lindsay transitioned to
outpatient care, she has been monitored on a SCRAM bracelet and tested daily in
order to support her sobriety. Throughout this period, I have received timely
and accurate reports from the testing companies. Unfortunately, late yesterday I
was informed that Lindsay had relapsed. The bracelet has now been removed. She
is safe, out of custody and presently receiving medical care.'"

Must I ask again where here mother is? I think the saddest part of all is that her lawyer is the only person there for her right now.

"'I want to withdraw everything -- court wise -- sit down with Dina as

this on her own ... when we were together, none of this was happening.'"

While this may be what Lohan needs in her life right now, some how I find myself thinking that it may be too little too late for the young star. Lohan can get through this, but I don't know if she will have much of a career left when she does.

X17 XCLUSIVE - Lindsay Offered X17 Photos For Cash! (X17 Online)

X17 XCLUSIVE - Lindsay Offered X17 Photos For Cash! (X17 Online):

"In recent days, Lindsay has been desperate for cash ... the 21 year-old
had offered to 'sell' photos to X17 to the tune of $30,000! Linds had been
calling and texting numerous members of Team X17 over the past week, trying to
organize a way to get some money and she's been in touch with other pap agencies
as well. "

It would appear that someone was attempting to keep the young Lohan from having money. It can only be assumed that they knew what she would spend it on if she got it.

We Just Gotta Esc (X17 Online)

We Just Gotta Esc (X17 Online):

"While reviewing our most recent footage of Lindsay before DUIGate, we noticed
the La Lohan climbing into a black Escalade on Sunday night as she left LAX -
awfully odd, considering that her most recent legal misadventure apparently
started with the starlet chasing down a black Escalade in a white Denali! (We
believe the Escalade is hers.) Santa Monica PD spokesperson, Lt. Alex Padilla,
has reported that the mother of Lindsay's assistant, Jenni Muro (who is said to
have quit her job just hours earlier) was the one who placed the call from
inside the SUV alleging that the actress was in hot pursuit. Jenni isn't the
only person to have left Lindsay's employ recently, X17 can reveal that
Lindsay's loyal bodyguard, Jaz, was fired just days before! "

I would be willing to bet that her assistant got wind of the lifestyle that Lohan was living and didn't want any part of it. If those drugs had been found in her assistants car, it would have gotten her assistant in legal trouble as well. The same might be said of the body guard as well, fired for knowing too much. If her assistants mom was on the way to the police station to turn Lohan in and Lohan was attempting to stop her, she failed.

following her arrest in Santa Monica for drunk driving and cocaine possession.
The actress, 21, was nabbed after cops spotted her SUV chasing another vehicle
at high speed. After Lohan failed a field sobriety test, she was transported to

BREAKING: Lindsay Lohan Busted For Second DUI!

A Socialite's Life: BREAKING: Lindsay Lohan Busted For Second DUI!

"Lindsay Lohan was arrested for drunk driving in Santa Monica early this morning
-- her second bust in less than three months.
According to the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept., 21-year-old Lohan was nailed around 2:15 AM near Pico Boulevard and Main Street early Tuesday morning.
Just last week, Lohan was quietly booked by Beverly Hills PD for an alleged Memorial Day weekend DUI crash. She was due back in court on August 24 to face charges of driving with a blood alcohol level greater than .08 and misdemeanor hit and run. "

Lindsay sweetie, just when we all thought you were doing so much better. This is really bad for her, the charges she is looking at are a DUI, cocaine possession, transporting a narcotic into a custodial facility and driving on a suspended license. She is going to do time for this.

It is really sad in a way, I thought that she had turned her life around. This could be the end of Lindsay Lohan, she doesn't have the luxury of Paris Hilton to be able to survive without working on movies, and it is going to be hard to get a job after this. We will see how the dust settles, but she will be doing time almost for sure.
