….And that’s what drugs do to you folks. While his older brother Nick Carter has been preparing for the NKOTBSB Tour, Aaron Carter has left the former “House of Carters” and checked into rehab, according E! News. The decision to go to rehab was apparently his own choice, and not a court mandated decision of any sort. Better than joining “Celebrity Rehab” again. Carter’s manager, Johnny Wright, elaborated on this, telling E! the following:
“Several months ago Aaron came to me to help him return to music and to restart his career. He has been in Orlando working on a new album and perfecting his live show and his physical body. Aaron, understanding the challenges and hard work it would take to get himself back to the top, requested to take some time before we started to heal some emotional and spiritual issues he was dealing with. Therefore he has chosen to enter a facility where he feels he will get the guidance and cleansing he needs that will help him on the music journey he’s about to take. He asks that everyone keep him in their prayers and that they respect his privacy at this time.”
Just days before she’s expected to be released from the Betty Ford Center, Lindsay Lohan tweeted “Today is the first day of the rest of my life.” The 24 year old actress (who barely ever tweet) added, “‘The future depends on what we do in the present.’ – Mahatma Gandhi… One step at a time….”
The photo above is from a series of glam photos taken on August 10th by Australian fashion photographer Benn Jaye. When the shoot was over, RadarOnline reported that art director Albert Reed said Lohan announced to the crew, “this is for my comeback.” Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in rehab on October 22nd after she relapsed, and January 3rd mark the completion of the sentence. Her next court appearance will be on February 25th.
In celebration of AJWS‘s 25th anniversary, (American Jewish World Service), a bunch of celebrities got together and made a hilarious PSA for them. The actual organization had a great laugh at the Funny or Die video and even had this to say:
It rocks. So by all means, laugh your tuches off. Enjoy some of the most celebrated names in entertainment (including Ben Stiller, Sarah Silverman, Kiefer Sutherland, Susan Sarandon and, yes, Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog) roasting AJWS as we mark our 25th anniversary. We’re here to amuse.

As Patrick Stewart says, “Individuals can change the world. “ And as a Starfleet captain, he should know (even though he’s not Jewish.)
Hollywood certainly doesn’t have a shortage of crazy stage parents roaming the streets. While there are plenty of crappier parent SLASH managers than Dina Lohan and Joe Simpson out there, I’m picking on these two fools. For some reason, these two irritate me to no end. They’re definitely the poster twats for inappropriate parenting. So let’s take a closer look at their stellar child rearing skills in action, and declare a
winner loser in this competition.
One only needs to look at exhibit A (Lindsay Lohan) to determine, this woman’s tubes should’ve been tied the minute Lindsay was arrested. One of her biggest faux pas to date was driving her substance abusing daughter to a Hollywood bar days just days after Lindsay finished one of her stints at rehab. CLASSY.
An equally classy move was made recently, when she was caught shopping around a reality show and exclusive interview opportunities with her incarcerated daughter. Talk about an opportunistic beyotch. Just think, this doting mother is a mom of four children. EEKS. We might as well start a countdown for Ali Lohan and her siblings’ debut on TMZ.com.
MODERN FAMILY, SEASON 2, EPISODE 2
After last year’s airport hug between Cameron and Mitchell, fans started a campaign to see the gay couple kiss. Executive Producer, Steve Levitan, said there was no need for the controversy as they had already planned a future episode, revolving public displays of affection later on. True to his word, the long-awaited kiss finally aired last night. Not only was there a kiss, but there were two man-on-man kisses.
One of the storylines revolved around Mitchell’s inability to perform any PDA, even when he dated girls. His standoffishness can be attributed to his Dad never showing any physical attention towards him growing up. Under the pressure of the family, Jay gave his son a smooch on the lips. That action led Mitchell to give Cameron a peck on the lips as well for the first time in front of people.
Overall, I liked the way the producers handled it. It wasn’t a big over-the-top “Gone With The Wind” type of affair. In this day and age, seeing two men/women kiss on primetime shouldn’t be a big deal anymore. Congrats to the show for recognizing this. PS. Did you not laugh out loud, when Cameron flipped over the sofa and knocked down the chips off the table. Hilarballs.
Series Premiere Grade: B+
It seems as though all of these bad girls “happened” in the last several years. Going back to a time when none of young starlets were into wearing panties as they got out of their limo and into the club. A time when instead of their face on the cover of Vogue, it was the photo of their mugshot from their most recent arrest that made headline.
Britney Spears was one of them, but she made it through the Circus and came back on top. She risked losing her children forever and had the support of her family to get through it.
Paris Hilton clearly hasn’t learned her lesson and it’s not as if her parents can even conceptualize disciplining their little princess. Lindsay Lohan has drugged her career away and is on her last straw of hope in getting it back after she continues to clean her act up. And Taylor Momsen? I think she’ll eventually turn out worst out of the batch.
From the bars, to back behind bars, our favorite trainwreck was ordered back to jail today. No more tricks up Lindsay Lohan‘s sleeve, now that she’ll be locked up without bail until October 22nd. At that time, a formal probation hearing will take place. This morning, Judge Elden Fox revoked her probation at the hearing because Lohan had breached her probation and tested positive for drugs. The probation was in place as a result of her DUI conviction from back in 2007.
She has been pretty, mature in realizing she effed up again and must pay the price. When it was discovered she tested positive for drugs, she tweeted, “Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked,
I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next week as a result.” That did in fact happen at the Beverly Hills Courthouse, and she was handcuffed and taken away to jail this morning.
She needs to “suck the poison out of her life,” just as Cady Herron did, the character she played in Mean Girls.
Yesterday, was a big day for our two favorite twenty-something red-head actresses. Emma Stone‘s “Easy A” premiered and SNL announced that she would be hosting SNL on October 23rd. They also announced that Lindsay Lohan would be hosting on December 4th! That wasn’t the only Lindsay news yesterday. Reports surfaced that she had failed her drug test. If that was they case, she could face 30 days in jail. This morning, Lohan admitted that this was true, in a few heartfelt, honest…tweets:
“Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked, I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next wee as a result. Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn’t go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps. This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I’m prepared to face the consequences…I am a work in progress, just as anyone else. I am keeping my faith, and I am hopeful…Thank you all!!!”
