Can Jon Gosselin turn back time?

Hey America, Jon Gosselin may be despicable enough to exploit his kids on TV (and pass off the blame), but he can't be all bad, right? Especially if he's willing to own up to his idioacy in a new Funny or Die? video: Jon Gosselin Goes Back in Time from Jon Gosselin For those of you who can't watch at work, Gosselin -- to a soundtrack of Cher's "If I Could Turn Back Time" -- methodically sets about dismantling his current image to arrive back at the Jon of yesteryear: the pre-Vegas pool party, pre-Hailey Glassman, pre-rabbi Shmuley Boteach guy. He peels off the layers to arrive back at the pitiful polo shirt-wearing schlub who was continually picked at by shrewish wife Kate. He swears off the Ed Hardy, takes out his diamond-esque stud earrings, trades vodka for juice and deletes Michael Lohan's number from his cell. Here's the thing:...

Another day, another rat jumps off the USS Lindsay Lohan

As regular Celebritology reader LuvLinsey would certainly agree, it's been a rough year for Lindsay Lohan: She's been confused with Donatella Versace, her acting career is all but dead in the water, her relationship with Samantha Ronson seems to be pretty much over and her dad has made a cottage industry out of selling his estranged family's private phone conversations. And now Emmanuel Ungaro is jockeying to distance himself from Lohan's disastrous pasty-filled collection debut at October's Paris Fashion Week. The designer, who sold the Ungaro fashion house in 2005, said he had nothing to do with the deal that brought in Lohan's influence. One of Lohan's Ungaro-branded creations. (Maria Valentino for The Washington Post) "Lindsay Lohan's collaboration was a disaster," said Ungaro. "I am furious but I can't do anything about it." Ungaro told press at a film festival in Lisbon, Spain that the fashion house bearing his name...

Photo: Goldie Hawn, out to sea or out to lunch?

Goldie Hawn meditates with an unidentified companion. (AP) Okay, so remember when Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell did that awful "Overboard" movie in the '80s? No? Well have a look, because it was the first thing I thought of when I saw the above picture move across the wires this morning. According to the caption, Hawn's meditating in a boat in Varanasi, India. What could be going through her mind? Perhaps she seeks absolution for her long career of cheesefests like "Overboard" and "Private Benjamin?" Or perhaps she hungers for the inner knowledge that will lead her to a better Botox practitioner? Or could she be seeking a way to tactfully recommend her daughter stop dating dudes who decorate their bedrooms with paintings of themselves as centaurs? We may never know. But Goldie, namaste....

Monday List: Celebs Who Should Join Twitter

Amy Winehouse, an as-yet unfullfilled Twitter genius. (Getty Images) After spending far too much of my Sunday evening reading Tila Tequila's increasingly unhinged tweets and wondering if it would be unprofessional for me to offer her some kind of monetary reward to quit the service, I was ready to follow Miley Cyrus into swearing off the whole over-hyped service. I was, then, of course reminded of Twitter's better side by reading a few dispatches from Sarah Silverman and Tracy Morgan, who see the 140-character or less model as yet another vehicle for their genius. And by Lindsay Lohan, who just plain overshares. And oversharing, in her case, is a good thing. But although I didn't much agree with this list from Popeater -- of celebrities who should join Twitter -- it did get me to thinking: which bold-namers would I like to see sign up and start dazzling us...
