Some gossip stories are too big to forget. We’re counting down the 20 biggest, baddest, and most ridiculous celeb scandals of the year. You’ll get a new one posted every day.
It was a rough year for our favorite firecrotch. She spent about half of it in and out of rehab, and hit rock bottom a few times through out 2007, like her coke-fueled car crash, for starters. But her worst moment of all came just weeks after being released from Promises treatment center in Malibu. After proudly flaunting an alcohol-sensing ankle bracelet around LA, Lohan hopped off the wagon at a party and went into a rage after her assistant abruptly quit. The actress stole a car belonging to the assistant’s boyfriend (with three guys already in it) and then chased down her former employee, who was driving in a different vehicle with her mother. The girl got so scared she called the cops on Linds, who tried to blame the spectacle on her innocent cohorts, claiming, “I wasn’t driving. The black kid was driving.”
We all know what happened next – cops found coke in her pants pocket, she got arrested, and Linds eventually hustled her ass to another rehab facility – where she stayed for months in an attempt to heal. So far she seems to be back on track – though her fake tan and cheesy hair are back, the booze seems to be gone for now. You go, LiLo!
Apparently celebrities have everything they could ever want – except birth control! British songstress Lily Allen is expecting a baby with her boyfriend of three months, 37-year old Ed Simon of the Chemical Brothers. The pregnancy appears to be a bit of a surprise for the 22-year old Allen, who was spotted smoking just a couple of weeks ago. Her rep confirmed the baby news, saying “I am pleased to confirm that Lily and Ed are expecting their first baby. The health of Lily and her child is their paramount concern. As the pregnancy is at such an early stage, the couple will be making no further comment, but they are obviously thrilled by the news.”
Really? All Lily’s been doing lately is talking about how she loves being newly skinny thanks to a new diet put in place to help her heart murmur. Looks like she can go back to pigging out now! The singer said in November that she’d be ready to retire at 25, because her current career, “doesn’t leave time for what’s important. Like having a family.” So she’s off by three years, but her early retirement plan sounds perfect! We look forward to her keeping us all updated on her pregnancy via some crazy MySpace blog posts.
Merry Christmas, America! Just when you thought you’d be stuck reading about what boring Brad Pitt is getting his kids for Christmas, Jamie-Lynn Spears goes and outdoes her crazy older sister. It’s the best present we’ve ever gotten! More news will surely come in today, but here’s the most recent word on Jamie-Lynn’s sitch:
- She revealed her pregnancy to her mom a week before Thanksgiving. She freaked for a week and was then supportive. Then, this week, she spilled the beans to OK! Magazine.
- The father is her 19-year old live-in boyfriend, Casey Aldridge.
- J-L is planning on raising her kid in Louisiana, “so it can have a normal family life.” Already she is wiser than her big sis.
- Nickelodeon – which is home to her show Zoey 101 – said, “We respect Jamie Lynn’s decision to take responsibility in this sensitive and personal situation. We know this is a very difficult time for her and her family, and our primary concern right now is for Jamie Lynn’s well being.”
- Mom Lynne’s upcoming Christian book on parenting is now on hold. Obviously.
- The best part of all is that BRITNEY DIDN’T KNOW ( and it’s all caught on tape)! It looks like Brit found out when the rest of the world did – last night. When the paps asked her about it while out shopping, she replied, “My sister’s not pregnant!” At least she will make an amazing crazy aunt.

K-Fed Gets His Way in Court

Mary Alice Stephenson, co-host of America’s Most Smartest Model, is a fashion industry insider whose smart looks and smart tongue control her show’s pretty people. The show’s over, folks, and V.J. won. Here’s what Mary Alice had to say about V.J.’s achievement, Andre’s attempt, and how the spoils go to the victor. Honi soit qui mal y pense!
After the jump, New York’s new man and the self-described “happiest man on the planet” talks about going to extremes to win her heart, how he feels about the other guys on the show and how his daughter feels about the new woman in his life.
Well, it was bound to happen. Unless Britney joins the army and goes to Iraq or runs for president, Amy has officially become the biggest celebrity mess of the year, with only thirteen days left in 2007. News is still breaking, but apparently the singer was arrested a couple hours ago in London for “perverting the course of justice.” This is the same charge brought up against her husband Blake, after he allegedly tried to bribe the witness in an assault case being brought against him with $400,000. Seeing as he’s like, a production assistant or something, it seems like Amy may be connected to that money somehow. Well, at least she can be close to her true love. She apparently is all ready to kill herself to if she can’t be with the guy, so I guess it all works out in the end. What a happy – albeit f*cked up – ending!
Remember when you were little and you made the horrible discovery that your parents had crushes on famous people? Surely my mom’s not the only one who bizarrely lusted after Neil Young, right? Well this is just as bad – America’s matriarch, Oprah Winfrey, is having relationship problems with her long term man Stedman. And the reason is her latest favorite thing: Barack Obama. The mono-monikered Stedman is jealous (um, so are we!) of O’s Obama-adoration, and the pair are allegedly seeking couple’s counseling with “a clergyman who has decades of experience dealing with deeply troubled long-term relationships.”
The source – who we think is Oprah’s sassy lil dog Sophie – alleged that “Oprah and Stedman’s relationship had been on very shaky ground for a long time,” and said that during a session, Oprah revealed that she no longer loved him. Maybe it’s time to call Dr. Phil? [MSNBC]
