A warrant was issued for Lindsay Lohan's arrest this afternoon. The actress-turned-basket-case is currently in France, but once she sets foot on American soil, she'll be dragged off to the big house. The charges? Allegedly violating her probation.
What is the matter with this girl?! I loved her in "The Parent Trap," "Mean Girls" and "Freaky Friday." Unlike so many actresses, Lindsay actually has talent, and she's thrown it all away. It's really sad.

John Travolta (age 56) and his wife, Kelly Preston (age 47), are expecting! The couple announced yesterday that Kelly is pregnant with her third child. What exciting news! I hope they are blessed with a happy and healthy baby. The Travoltas lost their 16-year-old son, Jett, who died of a seizure last year. Earlier this week, the family's two dogs were accidentally killed at an airport. After enduring so much tragedy, these people really deserve to be happy. Congrats to them!

Apparently Oprah Winfrey coordinated this big "Twilight" themed contest recently. A local family (from Naperville, IL) received the grand prize: Robert Pattinson showed up on their doorstep.
I'm not a huge Oprah fan, but when I first heard about this story, I thought it was pretty cool. (I mean, imagine if George Clooney showed up on my doorstep...I'd be in heaven!) However, check out the fine print: Edward Cullen only stuck around for 10 minutes! Isn't that kind of lame? He already traveled out of his way to get to freakin' Naperville...would it have killed him to stay for a whole hour? Apparently so!
Maybe I'm being ridiculous, but I don't think so.

Reason #456,971 why I don't like Jessica Simpson: poor dental hygiene. During a recent interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Simpson acknowledged that she only brushes her teeth two or three times per week.
I repeat: she only brushes her teeth THREE TIMES A WEEK!
And the reason behind the madness?
"I don't like them to feel too slippery," Jessica said.
I have news for you, Jessica. There are certain things in this life that just aren't optional for women. Shaving your legs, wearing deodorant and brushing your teeth are a few of them. I know you are the poster child for dumb blondes, but I really shouldn't have to tell you this.

How's this for a shocker? Sandra Bullock has finally broken her silence. Not only has she filed for divorce from her cheating scum-bag husband, Jesse James, but she also revealed that she recently adopted a baby boy from New Orleans! Wow. Not only am I amazed that Sandy managed to keep this secret for so long, but I'm very happy she has something wonderful in her life to help ease all the pain Jesse has caused her.

Inspired by a blog post by one of my favorite authors and Chicago celebs, Jen Lancaster, I want to know who you'd invite you your very own fantasy celebrity dinner party! Celebs can be living or dead. Here is my dream list:
- George Clooney (for obvious reasons)
- Peter Jennings (he was so brilliant and would have a lot to contribute to any conversation)
- Bill Clinton (because he's Bubba!)
- David Letterman (because he's hilarious)
- Madonna (I's seat her between Clinton and Letterman)
- Betty White (because she is the perfect person to add to this crazy crew!)

I hope this is just a rumor, but USWeekly is reporting that Elizabeth Taylor is engaged to marry a music manager. Liz is 78 now and is pretty much confined to a wheelchair. Also, she appeared on an awards show a few years back and seemed pretty out of it, which was very sad to see. This manager dude is only 49 years old and represents Janet Jackson. Hmm...I'm sorry, but I smell a rat! What do you think?

You all know by now that I cannot stand Kate OR Jon Gosselin, and lately I hate Kate even more because she is making a complete mockery of "Dancing with the Stars." However, Jon's latest lawsuit has me completely up in arms. Does he actually think he can sue his ex-wife for being a single, working mother? Kate's craptastic performance on "DWTS" aside, does being on the show really constitute her as an absentee mother? Also, when Kate announced she was doing the show, Jon congratulated her via his public Twitter account and said thathe supported her and was cheering her on! What the heck changed all that?!

Nicollette Sheridan, who left the hit ABC show "Desperate Housewives" in early 2009, has filed a lawsuit alleging that she was wrongfully terminated from the series after complaining about the show's creator, Marc Cherry. In her lawsuit, Sheridan claims that Cherry created a hostile working environment and was verbally and physically abusive to her and other people who worked on the show. She even claims that Cherry hit her in the head back in 2008. Now Sheridan is seeking $20 million in damages.
