Remember last week when Rob Schneider went on the Tonight Show dressed as Lindsay Lohan?
Well Momma Lohan was none too pleased and fired off a statement: "We have a great respect for Jay Leno but we are disappointed in the path he chose to allow a guest to make light of a very serious situation concerning Lindsay," Dina told Access Hollywood's Billy Bush.
Now the celebrity bitch fight is in full effect. Rob Schneider told PEOPLE:
"When Mrs. Lohan stops partying with her child, then I'll have an ounce of respect for her."
"I don't care if her parents are both crummy – you cannot blame your parents anymore. She's not a kid. Lindsay, get it together, America will forgive you but you gotta do something positive with your life," Schneider adds. "I hope she does okay but at a certain point, there's so many bigger problems in the world than Lindsay Lohan. I hope she gets her head out of her nice, cute little rear end and finds a life for herself. She's very talented, and a special little actress but there are so many people out there who'd trade positions with her in a heartbeat and use it better than she is."
ABC News sent an e-mail to its employees last week, reminding them that they shouldn't be cruising adult Web sites on company time.
"Word got out that one of the summer interns had nude pictures online," laughed an insider over at ABC. "And everyone was trying to find them."
Someone else said the young woman may have posed for a Playboy college issue.
"There are about 70 interns who come through in the summer, so we're not quite sure who the girl is," said the source.

Defamer reports that at a screening of the Lindsay Lohan film I Know Who Killed Me, the audience erupted into laughter during a scene where Lindsay’s character gets hit in the face with a shovel-- a scene meant to be terrifying.
I'd feel badly for her, however, when you endanger innocent lives by driving a HUGE white GMC truck while drunk and high on cocaine... well, as far as I'm concerned, you're an IDIOT. No sympathy from me my friend.

For most people, two trips to rehab, a car accident and two incidences involving cocaine found in your property in less than a year would likely be rock bottom. Apparently for Lindsay Lohan, it isn't. After yesterday's DUI her lawyer fired off this statement:
"Addiction is a terrible and vicious disease. Since Lindsay transitioned to outpatient care, she has been monitored on a SCRAM bracelet and tested daily in order to support her sobriety. Throughout this period, I have received timely and accurate reports from the testing companies. Unfortunately, late yesterday I was informed that Lindsay had relapsed. The bracelet has now been removed. She is safe, out of custody and presently receiving medical care."
Now here's Lindsay's statement to Access Hollywood's Billy Bush:
"Yes. I am innocent... did not do drugs they're not mine. I was almost hit by my assistant Tarin's mom. I appreciate everyone giving me my privacy."
Would you like an extra side order of denial to go with your already extra-denialy denial casserole? It's only an additional 50 cents. Lindsay and her lawyer can't even get their stories straight. Lawyer says Lindsay is an addict. Lindsay says she doesn't do drugs and the drugs aren't hers. She was framed. The drugs weren't hers, she's innocent and now she's going to dedicate her life to finding the REAL owner of the drugs. And let me guess, a ghost entered her body and made her fail the field sobriety test. It was someone else's alcohol in your system too, right. It sucks that she was so coked up and drunk that she forgot about the coke in her pocket and failed to swallow it on the way to the police station. She even sucks at being a crackhead. Since she couldn't go on the Tonight Show they brought in the next best thing - Rob Schneider in drag as Lindsay Lohan.

Even though her kids were crying and screaming just inches away, Britney Spears took time to express her concern about the paparazzi this weekend. Using a shame-based technique, she invited them to begin a regimen of healthy diet and exercise. Britney said:
"Hey baby, when are you going to get on a diet? Have you ever tried weight watchers, you fat fuck. Why don't you run, you need to fuckin jog, you pussy. Yeah, run, run bitch."
The thing I don't understand here is that it looks like they pull into the parking lot of a "Beds Etc.," she gets out with a bodyguard, and stands there with her phone allowing them to take a few pictures. All the sudden, the papparazzi just leave. Ain't nuffin to see here, folks!
Lindsay Lohan was busted for DUI again after she was involved in some weird, late-night car chase with an Escalade. Police also found drugs on her...again. There are conflicting reports as to what the white powdery substance really is - opiates or cocaine. Judging by the mug shot pupils my money is on cocaine.
Lindsay had been wearing a non-court ordered alcohol monitoring bracelet which was obviously for attention because really, how is an alcohol monitoring anklet useful if it's not backed up by a court order? It’s missing the element of consequence. Completely. All she had to do was NOT drive. It’s that simple. Bitch belongs on VH1’s Rock of Love:

I used to love the song, The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get. REMEMBER?!?!? Probably not. Anyhow, Morrissey sang it like 25 years ago. Well, in an attempt to get his name in the tabloids, Morrissey decided to slam Madonna and her newly adopted son, David.
While performing at a PETA benefit show in Norfolk, Virginia, July 9, he dissed, “I wouldn’t be surprised if she made that African boy she adopted into and a coat and wore him for 15 minutes, then threw it away,” presumably blasting Madonna for hopping on the Angelina bandwagon by adopting 21-month old David Banda from Malawi last year.
“In an attempt to trash Madonna, he revealed himself,” a rep for the singer fired back to Usmagazine.com. “What kind of a person could even call up such imagery and words?”
Using the phrase, "that's gay" has become an American pastime. Apparently gay can mean both stupid and homosexual, and below, you'll see an example of how one wildly handsome, mildly talented actor, Matt Damon, uses the phrase himself. Please attempt to discern whether Matt means he's gay or stupid. or both...
Matt Damon's interview in the most recent issue of GQ contained this little nugget about what he and Ben Affleck did with their first big paycheck:
"We both bought Jeep Grand Cherokees. It was funny, because Ben and I, we both always wanted a Jeep Grand Cherokee for some reason. That was the car. We always talked about it but never could afford one. So when we suddenly had the money, we each instantly started trying to convince each other to get a different car. We’d say, ‘Hey, have you seen the Explorer? The Ford Explorer is really cool.’ Because we knew it would just be so gay to get the same car."
This story (and Matt Damon) is both gay stupid and gay homo. I guess this isn't the best example, but you get my point!
The Los Angeles County District Attorney will not charge Lindsay Lohan with a DUI today after her accident at 5:30am on May 27th, when she lost control of her Mercedes SL-65 and crashed into a curb in Beverly Hills. Lindsay, then 20 years old, was speeding and had nearly twice the legal amount of alcohol in her system. Tests later revealed that Lohan had used cocaine that night, according to Us Weekly. A police spokesman said a "usable amount" of cocaine was found at the scene, but not specifically on Lohan. She fled the scene of the accident and was tracked down at a local hospital receiving treatment for very minor injuries. Lindsay turned herself in yesterday afternoon around 3:00pm and was released in about one hour. She has yet to be charged with a crime, but TMZ says:
In an email to TMZ, the spokesperson for the DA told us to "Check back on Monday."
She went back yesterday and turned herself into police. She was fingerprinted and released on her own recognisance. Honest to God, what the fuck does that mean? No, Lindsay, it's coo! Just go ahead and nearly kill someone. Play it off by going to "rehab" for a few days. Come back and then head to court... where they'll tell you, "Hey, Lindsay. Listen girl, we know you're famous and your life is like REALLY hard. So, I'll tell you what. Enjoy your weekend, and come back on Monday! BTW, can I get your autograph for my little girl? She LOVED you in Parent Trap!"
It's cool. [source]

Before I go.... I found this on Towleroad and had to share.
"While there are certainly adult male synchronized swimming teams, there's little acceptance for males in the sport among school-age kids. That didn't top 16-year-old Kenyon Smith, who acknowledges he was teased for his interest in the sport, from doing his own thing with the Santa Clara Aquamaids as the team's only male synchronized swimmer.
This inspiring clip is from the PBS series The Pursuit of Excellence and features a look at Kenyon's journey."

Last weekend, Kent Couch settled down in his lawn chair with some snacks -- and a parachute. Attached to his lawn chair were 105 large helium balloons. This dude traveled 193 miles - in a LAWN CHAIR attached to balloons. ARE YOU LISTENING?!
By the way, Kent is a gas station owner. I'm not sure what, if anything, you can infer from that, but I figured you should know.
"When you're a little kid and you're holding a helium balloon, it has to cross your mind," Couch told the Bend Bulletin.

Jon Lovitz roughed up Andy Dick last weekend at a comedy club in California over the murder of their Saturday Night Live colleague, Phil Hartman.
Laugh Factory owner Jamie Masada, who witnessed the assault, said, "Jon picked Andy up by the head and smashed him into the bar four or five times, and blood started pouring out of his nose." Lovitz told Page Six, "All the comedians are glad I did it because this guy is a [bleep]hole." That's asshole. We can swear here on Celebrity Hijinx. Fuck what you heard!
Lovitz and Dick have been at war since a 1997 Christmas party at Hartman's house, five months before his troubled wife Brynn flipped out, fatally shooting Hartman, then killing herself. "Andy was doing cocaine, and he gave Brynn some after she had been sober for 10 years. Phil was furious about it - and then five months later he's dead," said Lovitz, adding that when he filled in on Hartman's "Newsradio" sitcom, "I told Andy, 'I wouldn't be here now if you hadn't given Brynn that cocaine.'

And, ladies... if you have a gay friend that's super totally hot, MOVE ON. He's not into you. Don't try to have sex with him. It ain't right. His boyfriend will get pissed and most likely cut your long-ass hair when you're sleeping. I'm just sayin.

A Chicago television reporter, Amy Jacobson, left her job after she was caught on video in a swimsuit at the home of a man whose wife is missing. Amy was assigned to the story. Scandal!
Jacobson's attorney, Kathleen Zellner, said she was concerned the media would distort the contents of the tape. "She wasn't fired. There was no drinking. No one was sitting in a hot tub. She wasn't anywhere near him (Craig Stebic)," Zellner said. "(Stebic's) sister invited her to drop by." Jacobson was assigned to cover the disappearance of Stebic's wife, Lisa, who still lived with her husband while the two went through a divorce. No one has been charged in the case, which has generated high interest here since the young mother of two disappeared April 30. Stebic's husband was the last person to see her, but police have said he is not a suspect in the disappearance. On the day she disappeared, Lisa Stebic had mailed off a petition seeking to remove her husband from the home. In the divorce case, she accused him of being "unnecessarily relentless, cruel, inconsiderate, domineering and verbally abusive." Jacobson, leaves behind a staff that includes Marion Brooks, who had to testify last year about her four-year relationship with former Atlanta Mayor Bill Campbell that began when she was an anchor in that city.
The moral of the story: stay away from house of a guy who has an "estranged" wife who happen to be "missing" especially when you're a good-looking reporter who is assigned to the story and especially especially if you're in a halter bikini top. Meanwhile, in related news-scandal news:
In Los Angeles, at Spanish-language Telemundo station KVEA-TV—newscaster Mirthala Salinas was only placed on a leave of absence from her duties earlier this month pending review after it was revealed she had been having an affair with Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who separated in June from his wife of 20 years. Salinas has covered the mayor, including the news of his separation.

Which still-young household-name star lost her virginity at 17 to another household-name star after he started dating that other household-name star whom he later married? But you won't see this hookup mentioned in anyone's "A&E Biography": In California, that's statutory rape.
My guess: Initially I thought maybe an Olsen, John Stamos and Rebecca Romijn. Upon further critical reading, it appears as if the underage hookup came before the wedding. John and Rebecca married in 1998 so the timing isn’t right. I’m still take Olsen as the virginity-losing star for 1000.
My guess: Fergie and Josh Duhamel? She’s said she’s super sexual and interested in girls during interviews.
Which celebrity appendage whose name is synonymous with "gay husband" spent time in an NYC hotel room last week with two gentleman friends?
My guess: Al Reynolds.
What do you get when you add the words gigantic + enormous? Ginormous, dumbass!
Merriam-Webster has decided to add the compounded word in the latest edition of the dictionary, along with Bollywood, sudoku and speed dating.
Of course, some smartypants-a-hole-linguistic-conservative (likely republican) professor named Allan Metcalf, a professor of English at MacMurray College in Jacksonville, Il, says that words like ginormous should not be included in the dictionary. "A new word that stands out and is ostentatious is going to sink like a lead balloon," he said. "It might enjoy a fringe existence." Much like his hair. Check this dude out!! haha
But Merriam-Webster traces ginormous back to 1948, when it appeared in a British dictionary of military slang. And in the past several years, its use has become, well, ginormous.

It was all fun and games at the Saint Louis Beyonce concert, until a pyrotechnic fell from the ceiling, injuring two people. The two fans were taken to a local hospital and treated with only minor injuries. After the concert, Beyonce made a quiet visit to the E.R. at Barnes-Jewish Hospital to visit the fans, both of whom were expected to make full recoveries.
The best part of the clip is that Beyonce doesn't even seem to flinch. That bitch is all work and no play. Someone's weave caught on fire, BUT THE SHOW MUST CONTINUE! It reminds me of a clip that circulated the a few years back when Destiny's Child was still together. Michelle - you remember, she was the skinny, skelator-looking one with the horrible voice - completely wiped out on stage, and Kelly and just kept like nothing even happened. They didn't even reach over to help the poor girl up, which is sad because Michelle hasn't eaten since the 4grade, and it was really hard for her to muster the strength to get up on her own.

Dino and I often scan crazy news stories to find the best "YOUR 15 MINUTES." While some stories are strange (like chinese acrobats who were being held as slaves), they just shouldn't be entertainment. Then there are stories that shouldn't be entertaining but are...like this one:
Police who chased a car for miles along a highway at speeds up to 100 mph said the driver was drunk, hardly a rarity in this resort town. But there was more: When they looked inside the flipped vehicle with guns drawn, they found an 11-year-old girl at the wheel. "You go up there thinking it's a felon you're dealing with," assistant police Chief Greg Duck said. The girl, who was slightly injured in the crash, is now charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, speeding, reckless endangerment and leaving the scene of an accident. Duck said she sideswiped another vehicle during the roughly 8-mile chase. The chase began around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday when a patrol officer near the Florida line saw the car speeding west along a beach highway, Duck said. When the officer flicked on his lights, the driver sped up. The girl rolled the car just inside the Gulf Shores city limit. Duck said the girl, whose name was not released because of her age, told police she was on her way to pick up her sister at a concert. Investigators found no alcohol in the car but believe the girl drank before getting behind the wheel of the car, which belongs to relatives. Duck declined to release the girl's blood alcohol level but said a blood test at the hospital showed it was higher than .02, the legal limit for minors. [source]
Damn girl!!! She is going to be a fun one when she gets to college. IF she gets to college. See parents, this is what happens when your young daughters idolize people like Paris Hilton.
Are you there God, it's me xine. Why...why couldn't this happen to me?
For months, Shira Barlow's cell phone was flooded with wrong-number calls and text messages, mostly between 2 and 4 a.m. on weekends. Told they had reached a college student, callers refused to believe it. "Baby girl, how are you?" one man purred in a foreign accent. "Why are you doing this?" a woman asked. "This is so rude." And there were several seemingly random references to "Paris." As in Paris Hilton.
Barlow's story began on Valentine's Day during a night out with friends. She was carrying her phone in a back pocket when it fell into a toilet. When she replaced it, her wireless company insisted on assigning the San Francisco native a new number with a 310 area code rather than 415. Barlow had been given a recycled phone number that used to be Hilton's. The practice stems from efforts to conserve phone numbers to minimize area-code splitting.
Just after Barlow got her new phone close to Hilton's February 17 birthday, a flurry of calls and texts arrived. "Oh my God," one caller said. "Where's the party?" Then came the day Hilton was sentenced to jail after violating probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case. Messages about parties were replaced by dozens expressing condolences. "People were scared for her," Barlow said. The phone traffic trailed off when Hilton entered jail last month. But when Hilton was released, a new crop of messages flooded in. "It's disgusting how they treated you in there, but once again you have showed the world that you can do anything," one wrote. Barlow said she has resisted the temptation to pose as Hilton to get into exclusive parties. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!? - You'd either have to be dumb, fat or REALLY REALLY into college to resist that!!! But she did message supporters "thanks so much," believing Hilton would appreciate it. Barlow plans to keep the number because she says it has been a greater source of amusement than a hassle. "It was really out of convenience," she added. "I didn't want to switch again." [source]

Toothy Tile, natch. You were expecting Gussy 'n' Fussy, perhaps? Like, who cares about those ersatz het jokers anymore? (Not too many folks, I assure ya.) Nah, it’s all about Toothy Tile—and when the hell this gorgeous scaredy-puss is gonna disclose his sexual pref, already—and Bulbous knows this fagola factoid. So much so, he’s been mouthing off at chic Hell-Ay events about just how Toothy isn’t foolin’ anybody. Well, I beg to differ. Had I been at this one par-tick fancy-schmancy soiree, I would have gladly explained to B.S. that half of Bush’s “Mare-kuh” thinks T.T. is as heterosexual as our current prez. Wait, Bush is straight, isn’t he? Don’t answer that, actually, do not want to go there…
Back to B.S., who’s clearly dying for Toothy’s sexuality to come to the surface so the media will ease off his dubious dame-doin' existence. Uh, word to the unwise wower: Boyfriend, you just keep on gettin’ higher 'n' higher at those swell dos you go to. You’ll be outing Toothy long before anybody like moi would ever dream of doing so. It ain't: Sean Penn, Colin Ferrell or Will Smith.
Um...Matthew McConneenaheay. I obviously don't know how to spell his last name. :) Owen Wilson. Luke Wilson. Oh, and Toothy Tile is Jake Gylleehaaaaal. God, these last names. Why can't every famous person have a name like Will Smith so I don't have to be google searching all the time?

I'm a total yuppie. I admit it. I bought health insurance for my puppy and I don't care if it sounds ridiculous. In fact, once I overcame my limited personal feelings of ridiculousness, I began reading over the policy only to uncover more ridiculousness. In the part about excluded conditions, a few of them struck me as particularly humorous:No puppy nosejobs
No puppy braces
And when the puppy freaks out because she can't fix her crooked nose and teeth, you better come up with another way to deal with it because they aren't paying for that either.
Luckily Celebrity Hijinx mascot, Lucia, is picture perfect
I thought today was going to be a produtive blog day for me considering I started off my morning with a conversation in which I psychoanalyzed Dino's nipples. Alas, it didn't work out that well. So, I'm going to cover a few random things in one nice, little blog entry:
1. My laptop died. This is my second laptop death this year leaving me only with a desktop at home and a desktop at work - both of which are not blog-friendly. This time my Dell laptop kicked it. I received the blue screen of death (pictured below). If anyone knows how to help me, it would be much appreciated. A magical incentive is that once the laptop is fixed, I will post more often.2. Some genius at the Diet Pepsi factory innovated Diet Pepsi Max - Invigorating Cola like a month ago. I swear it just made it to the Diet Pepsi shelf at my grocery store yesterday. Trust me, I'm like a hawk. Anyway, it has twice the caffeine of regular Diet Pepsi. It also includes ginseng so I'm now able to categorize my out-of-control Diet Pepsi addiction as "healthy,"right? Really, in my world this is Nobel Peace Prize-worthy. Or at least a runner-up on American Inventor. Go buy it. Stop wasting your money on Red Bull. This will give you wings for about 50 cents and it doesn't taste like medicine. 3. Last but not least, Nicole Richie is still carrying stuff in front of her stomach while neither publicly confirming or denying a pregnancy. This leads me to believe she's knocked up. Rumor has it the baby will be named Publicity.....I mean Felicity.
Talk about career suicide. Isaiah Washington went on the Larry King Live show to discuss his recent dismissal from the ABC show, Grey's Anatomy. Now, Larry King has no shame; he had Paris Hilton on like a week ago, and he's no stranger to bullshit news stories, but Isaiah, NO ONE GIVES A SHIT ANYMORE.
Here's how this shit went down:
Isaiah blamed costar Patrick Dempsey's repeated tardiness to the Grey's Anatomy set for the blow-up that resulted in Isaiah having to use the word faggot. Hmph.
Isaiah said he regretted not confronting Dempsey the first time he was late, so the second time, he felt he had to play hardball. But Dempsey wanted to delay the scene more to wait for Ellen Pompeo, who plays Grey, before shooting began.
"I said I don't need Ellen, I can act," Isaiah told Larry King. "And that was the moment that sent it into a different zone."
"He became unhinged, sprayed spittle in my face," Isaiah said. "I'm asking him why is he screaming at me. ... He just becomes irate."
I said several bad words," he recalled, quoting himself as telling Dempsey: "There's no way you're going to treat me like the B-word, the P-word or the F-word."
Let me fill in the blanks: "There's no way you're going to treat me like the BITCH, the PUSSY or the FAGGOT."
I can't hate the dude too much, I mean, those are a few of my favorite words too. But honestly, enough already. Find a new job dude. Game over. I guess I should thank my lucky stars I haven't lost my job too. Bitch is the second most used word in my vocabulary, second only to suck-it.

Houses in Hell-Ay, just as domiciles round the world sometimes can be, are often used as backgrounds for movie and TV film projects as well as photo shoots. In fact, there are companies that specifically farm out T-town’s more posh houses for whatever media project comes a-callin’—and I’m not talkin’ porno shoots (that’s a diff number ya call, trust). These housing minders like to think they’re discreet (usually they are) finaglers of design and commerce, sort of architectural matchmakers, if you will. Very snitty and highbrow, exclusive, that sorta thang.
Which is why Butt-Burning Bruce, media and film legend of sorts, called one particular firm like the ones mentioned above. B3 hasn’t exactly been working that much as of late (so, no, all you hard-working detectives, it ain’t Monsieur Willis, I’ll say that much right now). Mr. Bee, uh, needed some loot—fast. What better way to score some major quickie moolah than to rent out his supercool lovelorn pad perched so magnificently in the City of Fallen Heartthrobs, right? So, he did. And now he regrets doing so.
See, when the film company that subsequently came in to take advantage of B.B.B.’s hipper-than-slick streamlined job, what just about everybody involved on the project got instead was what B. left in the oversize master b-room. And, no, I don’t mean he simply forgot to flush. Butt-Burning failed to remove a fancy jewelry box from a polished bathroom counter. Not that fabulous gems and baubles could have been stolen, not at all. Carats of far greater value (i.e., kinkiness) were inside: sex toys, to be exact. Guess they’d been placed on the counter for washing, one supposes. And sure as you can smell a whole lotta strawberry-flavored lube right about now, B3 had an entire assortment of dildos, whips and ticklers in the wooden container. Used. All of it. Gross me out with an industrial-size bottle of 409, already! Hey, Bruce, don’t you know you’re supposed to put that crap in the dishwasher, boyfriend? Gosh, straight guys never know how to get really debauched efficiently, do they? (By the by, B-boy, those playthings for your partner—or you?) It aint: Harrison Ford, Hoff, Cuba Gooding or Bruce Willis. It could be: Tom Cruise but I doubt he needs the money. Um...it has to be someone who was once hunky but now kinda a nobody - like Mickey Rourke...but then again why would we care?
