"She is crying and talking to wardens and keeping others awake."

PBS is always scrounging for cash...
I say they replace their semi-annual pledge drive phone bank guilt trip with a 24x7 feed of Lilo whining and sniveling behind bars. They should clear the money they need to buy Terry Gross a solid gold house in a couple hours.

"They said, Kid, what'd you get?' and I said, 'I got to keep my hair extensions and some Twizzlers,' and they said, 'No, Kid, what are you IN for?' and I said, 'Violatin' my probation,' and they all moved away from me on the Group W bench, there, until I said, 'for drinking and driving,' and they all came back, slapped me on the back and we had a grand old time, talkin' 'bout mother-rapin' and father-stabbin' and all kinds of mean, nasty things..."
- From the forthcoming "LiLo's Restaurant Massacree" album


"Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are secretly still together." Of course they are: the magic marker "L" and "R" that Heidi had on feet finally washed off in the shower and now she can't get her shoes on to leave, and what the hell is Spence gonna do - get a job at 7-11?

In HIMYM's upcoming season:

Barney bangs skanks.
Marshall and Lily get frisky.
Robin goes Nickelodeon.
And Ted's future wife is revealed to be the daughter of Carlton the Doorman.

Considering Peggy Lee wrote & sang the original Siamese cat song, Lady Gaga would be a natural successor.

So Kanye's on Twitter. Can we lobby for the return of "Twits"? Brain droppings are a terrible thing to waste, after all.

Bloated legal bureaucracy Grows by prosecuting Trivial Cases
--
At this rate half our citizens will spend time in prisons - or have to pay a lawyer to protect their rights from nonsensical or padded charges (They make $ either way). Its become big business and needs to be seen as such.

A public uproar recently occurred when it was discovered that several city bureaucrats in Bell, Cali have been paid over $500,000 a year in salary, and guaranteed almost as much in pension. [See http://PensionTsunami.com to see how self-serving bureaucrats have become].

P.S. Lohan's lawyer showed she had substantially satisfied her 3-year probation while staying Employed. Also, they won't remove deeply binded hair, false teeth or implants.

Hair extensions? What happened to the suicide watch? Let's hope they at least took her shoelaces and belt.

Lilo is supposed to be "in isolation." I wonder how the other inmates know what kind of treatment she is getting.

yellojkt,Obviously Casey Affleck needs to be considered as a potential candidate for President, and not Matt Damon as was recently suggested in this space. He already has the sex scandal part down.
re HIMYM, is Ted's future wife Carlton's daughter by Ann Romano (Bonnie Franklin)?

I would like to publicly apologize for misspelling George Clooney's gf's last name as the WRONG illegal chemical substance. But "Elizbetta Coke-sniffer" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

"Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are secretly still together" is really scary.

I am totally down with Lady Gaga as the Siamese Cat.

apropos of nothing, I can't stand the "Kitty Galore" title.

Didn't Ann Romano marry Schneider? I know that Valerie Bertinelli married me in my 8th grade fantasy life.

LiLo receiving preferential treatment should be under NOT News. We all knew that would happen. And I'm not at all surprised she is doing anything possible to get attention. That's her real addiction.

Model-turned-prostitute ... LOL.

Yes, Laura Linney is uber-cool. She's on the cover of last month's Prevention, too, with a great article about her. Definitely someone who seems to have her head on straight ... not easy in Hollyweird.

I didn't think Mountains of Madness would EVER get produced, figured it would be one of those "wouldn't it have been great if..." movies. But Cameron gets stuff done, and I could not be happier.

Now if only Gilliam can get Good Omens made.

Laura Linney... Definitely someone who seems to have her head on straight ... not easy in Hollyweird.

Maybe because she's a New Yorker?

hehehe -- probably. In the Hollyweird biz, I guess is what I meant. :o)

Posted by: Californian11 | July 29, 2010 1:07 PM | Report abuse

yellojkt, you are right about Schneider and Ann. Maybe it was by Julie Cooper and that's the REAL reason she had to disappear.

Posted by: reddragon1 | July 29, 2010 3:23 PM | Report abuse

Everyone gets their name in the paper claiming to know something about LiLo. This is Cali's strongest economic driver currently.

The legal system has created a huge alumni. Eventually people will realize how minor these petty offenses are - and how much $ the legal bureaucrats have made with their zero tolerance hype. Thats what ended McCarthyism in the 50's

Carlton The Doorman was secretly bonking Rhoda. Why else would he be hiding behind the door all the time?

Did Sarah Jessica Parker die?!?!

Does Byoolin prefer a pickle to riding a motorsickle?

And three people do it, three, can you imagine, three people walking into
the bar of Alice's Restaurant and ordering take-out. They may think it's an
organization. And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day,I said
fifty people a day walking into the bar of Alice's Restaurant and
ordering take- out. And friends they may think it's a franchise.
