Lindsay Lohan won't appear on Letterman; police remove gun from Frankie Muniz's home

By Liz Kelly

Update: According to our colleague Lisa de Moraes, Lindsay Lohan will not be reading the Top Ten List on Thursday's "Late Show with David Letterman." The starlet tweeted this message Tuesday night, after a release from the "Late Show" went out touting her supposed upcoming appearance:

I am NOT going to be doing David Letterman, I'm not sure how this happened, but I am sorry for the confusion...less than a minute ago via web

Last week, Letterman read the "Top 10 Signs That Lindsay Lohan Is Out of Control," including "Friends worry that her shoplifting is getting in the way of her drinking." [AP]

Police reportedly removed a gun from the home of "Malcolm in the Middle" star Frankie Muniz's home last Friday. Muniz was allegedly arguing with his girlfriend when he pulled out the weapon and held it against his own head, threatening suicide. A rep for Muniz denies a gun was involved. [Boston Herald]

A judge has granted Mickey Rooney a temporary restraining order against his stepson, who allegedly withheld food and medicine and meddled in the finances of the 90-year-old Hollywood legend. [AP]

More morning mix -- including a Playboy mansion outbreak -- after the jump...

The Playboy mansion -- or certain dank corners of it -- are under investigation by the Los Angeles Health Department after 170 guests and staffers have reportedly been diagnosed with legionellosis. Employees are reportedly being asked if they spent any time near the "water features" including the infamous Grotto. [The FABLife]

i know exactly how Fantasia feels - i skipped them because Biz Markie wasn't involved.

I would suspect that legionellosis is a diagnosis one would be relieved to hear after spending time in the Grotto.

It would have been a shame if Frankie Muniz's return to tv had been a ten-minute segment on E! called "Malcolm In The Middle, Brains On The Wall".

I keep waiting for a press release from the NRA that says, "If only Frankie Muniz's girlfriend had had her own gun, the situation could have been resolved quickly with no threat of harm to innocent bystanders."

Playboy's Unabashed Dictionary defines "legionellosis" as the last thing you'd expect to catch in the Grotto.

Internet opinion is mixed on Fantasia Barrino skipping the Grammys - half of it says she she was justified after being left out of the Aretha Franklin tribute, while the other half believed another singer should have joined the quintet of Christina Aguilera, Yolanda Adams, Jennifer Hudson, Florence Welch and Martina McBride: "JUSTIN BIEBER DESERVED IT GO DIE IN A HOLE. WHO THE HECK ARE YOU ANYWAY?"

After the Biebs invaded my beloved Glee for one of the worst episodes ever, I'm not that thrilled with Bieber either, Byoolin.

I think "ick nast" covers the whole concept of the Playboy Mansion.

I have this strange feeling that Lindsey's lawyer got hold of her and say "Are you NUTS???? Going on Letterman right now is not a good idea." Or else she found out that her probation does not permit her to leave CA and appearing on Letterman to make fun of the CA justice system does not qualify as "work."

That's odd; I keep waiting for the "guns bad, us good" crowd to finally develop enough intelligence to be able to connect the dots and understand that there are about 1,000 ways to die besides a gun.

Hey, I have an idea, let's get rid of all the bleach in the house - it's hazardous to us humans you know.

Wait, what about all those cars killing people; about three times as many as guns.

Let's shut down the airlines since people get killed in crashes all the time.

Cigarettes are a big no no. You want to save 1/2 a million people a year? Well then, let's outlaw those smokes.

Alcohol - ditto with the smokes comment.

What about all those fataszszsz I see walking around. Those folks are just looking for a heart attack. Let's make sure we save a few hundred thousand of them and tell them what they can and can not eat.

Get the point dunbazsaszszsazsz? Probably not.

Hey Bcamp55, you can also die of a hangnail contracted hile composing a message to post online.

"Get the point dunbazsaszszsazsz? Probably not."

It's hard to argue with such a well-thought-out point of view.

Especially when its advocate is likely to be packing.

Byoo', are you insinuating that Bcamp55 is a fudge packer?

Byoo, I'm offended on your behalf. There I was amused by your comment and some literalist has to come throw a big wet whiny blanket on it.
