Despite voting for Barack Obama in 2008, Lindsay Lohan on Thursday threw her support behind Mitt Romney.
Attending the Mr. Pink Ginseng Drink Launch Party in Los Angeles, the embattled starlet told reporters including Fox411 Pop Tarts, "I think unemployment is very important for now, so as of now I think (my vote) is Mitt Romney" (photos courtesy Getty Images).
Rosie O'Donnell made an hysterically ironic comment about Lindsay Lohan on Tuesday's Today show.
While criticizing the Lifetime Network's decision to cast the embattled star as Elizabeth Taylor in an upcoming movie, the recently fired by Oprah Winfrey for terrible ratings comedienne actually said on national television, "The interest level in her has waned significantly" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Another teen “role model” down the drain – Miley Cyrus, aka, Disney’s “HannahMontana" recently admitted at her 19th birthday party that she smokes pot - a lot of pot. But instead of reporting this sad news to viewers, ABC, CBS and NBC have shrugged off the admission as if it's not at all news.
In a video released by The Daily, Cyrus took the microphone at her birthday party last week in Los Angeles and said, "You know you're a stoner when your friends make you a Bob Marley cake … You know you smoke way too much f***ing weed." This comes as no surprise to those who remember the video released last year of Cyrus smoking a bong claiming it was not weed and in fact the legal hallucinogen, salvia.
Have you noticed that with each passing year, Halloween has become less about kids wearing scary costumes to go trick-or-treating and more about women dressing up as French maids, prostitutes, and Playboy bunnies?
Although this concept was first brought to my attention when I took my daughter to see Lindsay Lohan in the hit film "Mean Girls" a number of years ago, the sexual imagery since has become more and more lurid.
Consider that this year, some of the outfits projected by CNBC.com to be in the most demand are sexy "Sesame Street" costumes (h/t Big Hollywood):
“Access Hollywood,” NBC’s nightly entertainment show, reports salacious celebrity gossip as “news.” It gets ratings and ad dollars for dishing about sex, drugs, violence, rehab and any other misbehavior by people in the public eye. But when it comes to the mother of the octuplets, well, Access Hollywood is suddenly above reporting that story.
Entertainment reporter Billy Bush told viewers on the February 24 broadcast that Access Hollywood would no longer report on the octo-mom Here is what Bush said in the last seconds of the show:
At the top of the 7:30AM half hour of Thursday’s CBS Early Show, co-host Maggie Rodriguez teased an upcoming segment on Hollywood celebrities coming out: " Ahead this morning, two young stars come out of the closet. We'll talk about whether Hollywood has changed its attitude towards gays." While that headline suggested controversy, in the later segment correspondent Michelle Gillen declared: "‘out’ is apparently ‘in’," and no voices of dissent from family values advocates were presented.
Gillen reported that: "With celebrities such as Ellen Degeneres and Grey's Anatomy's T.R. Knight openly out and TV shows with gay or lesbian characters proving popular in recent years, coming out won't necessarily kill a career...Some celebrities who stars were fading have gotten a career boost after going public about being gay." Gillen then quoted CBS News correspondent Itay Hod, who is gay, on the issue: "The landscape is changing. There's no question that even Hollywood is going a little more gay and a little more liberal when it comes to your sexuality...Well, a lot of it has to do with the fact that society's changing, you know? We're -- the new generation doesn't really care that much."
MSNBC's Tamron Hall [file photo] is a big "Us Weekly" fan. Even more disturbing: she believes that guilty pleasure is expiated by her reliance on the New York Times for her news.
Hall has been taking Mika Brzezinksi's place on this week's "Morning Joe." This morning's show opened with Joe Scarborough decrying the disparately lenient judicial treatment doled out to Nicole Richie and Lindsay Lohan. They have received slaps on the wrist, doing virtually no jail time for their drug-fueled escapades, whereas Paris Hilton spent over 20 days in the hoosegow.
When Joe asserted that Paris has been walking the straight and narrow since exiting the Big House, Tamron corrected the record.
Jim Pinkerton found a graphic way to express his displeasure over Fox News Watch's decision to devote a segment to Lindsay Lohan's latest run-in with the law. With a nod to MSNBC newsreader Mika Brzezinski, who as I chronicled here had torn up a Paris Hilton story in protest, Pinkerton ripped a page or two on tonight's show.
FOX NEWS WATCH PANELIST JIM PINKERTON: This speaks to formula, right?. We all know that Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Ritchie are fighting to get the Anna Nicole Smith slot for this year.
FOX NEWS WATCH HOST ERIC BURNS: Nicole Ritchie, who has just been sentenced herself.
PINKERTON: Exactly. I'm going to honor another formula [as he ceremoniously tears the story in two]. That would be Mika Brzezinski on MSNBC and Jack Cafferty on CNN, who refused to read their copy. It might have been a show, it might have been an act for the cameras, but I'm going to do the same thing and see what happens. Because I don't think this is really worth covering on our segment.
