It is officially on between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. For real this time.

Lindsay Lohan just dodged another legal bullet. After firing Shawn Holley, her longtime lawyer nevertheless showed up and entered a plea for her in court.

The beleaguered, bankrupt mom of 14 completed her first day of XXX shooting at a porn mansion in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley Thursday, and it went well!

Troubled star Lindsay Lohan was the instigator, aggressor and drink-tosser in her latest nightclub melee … according to a witness who is probably lying.
