Celebritology Weekend: LiLo all over the place
The three celeb-centric items we're watching this weekend...
1. What's going on with Lindsay Lohan? A better question might be what isn't going on with the tabloid magnet and sometimes working actress. Lohan's attorney confirmed Friday that Lindsay is cooperating in the investigation of a friend's $35,000 Rolex watch that disappeared from the "Mean Girls" star's home. But, said attorney Shawn Chapman Holley to E! News, Lohan is "is not a suspect." This less than a day after dad Michael showed up, cops and paparazzi in tow, at Lilo's Hollywood apartment to check on the welfare of 16-year-old sis, Ali, who has been bunking with big sis lately. Papa Lohan, no stranger to the tabloids himself, says he believes young Ali is in danger from Lindsay's bad influence. Lohan responded by tweeting: "The only one in need of police protection here is ME AND ALI from our pathological, lying ex-father!" And, that's not all: This week Lohan again missed a scheduled deposition in a 2007 car chase case. Her busy legal rep promises Lilo will show up May 4 to answer questions.
2. Bret Michaels hospitalized: The "Celebrity Apprentice" contestant and former Poison frontman is in critical condition, rushed to the hospital with an "excruciating headache." Docs diagnosed a subarachnoid hemorrhage, according to People.com. A diabetic, Michaels had recently told fans he was recovering well from an April 12 emergency appendectomy.
3. Restoring Stephen Baldwin: According to Web site RestoreStephenBaldwin.org, it isn't the fault of the youngest Baldwin (big brother is "30 Rock's" Alec) that he's bankrupt and can't land a legit acting gig. No, per a video and site FAQ, Baldwin is a modern-day Job who sacrificed his Hollywood standing in favor of his new-ish evangelical beliefs. Though the Web site -- which asks for donations for Baldwin -- went viral this week, Baldwin rep Dan Southern tells us donations (the default donation requested is a Job-referencing $4.21) remain "a trickle." But, he added, the money isn't the point. "It's really about people standing behind Stephen who believe he's an important spokesperson," he said. "So they're trying to help him fix his flat tire."
Buzziest Celebs of the Week: Based on our weekly poll of Celebritology readers, these are the three top celebs in the news for the week of April 18 - 24:
1. Larry King -- The CNN softball lobber and wife Shawn Southwick called a two-week hiatus on their divorce proceedings. Considering it's his second week atop this list, we apparently care. We really, really care.
2. Cameron Douglas -- Despite pleas from Hollywood royalty including grandpa Kirk and stepmom Catherine Zeta-Jones, a New York judge handed Michael Douglas's 31-year-old son a five-year prison term for selling cocaine and methamphetamine.
3. Christina Hendricks -- The va-va-voomy "Mad Men" co-star is named "best-looking woman in America" by Esquire and takes the opportunity to dump on Facebook as "an invasion of everyone's privacy."
Pop Culture Pick
Gabourey Sidibe is best known for earning an Oscar nomination for playing a beaten-down, often uncommunicative, impoverished teen in the movie "Precious." So, um, who better to host 90 minutes of live sketch comedy during tonight's episode of "Saturday Night Live"? Actually we think Sidibe, who is sunny, giggly and pretty amusing in real life, just might surprise us.
