Gasp. Did Lindsay Lohan finally read the writing on the wall?
Sources say she is finally getting it through her air-filled head that one way or the next, she’ll end up behind bars following her grand theft arrest.
As a result, she is “seriously considering” taking the plea deal that would send her to jail, but for a relatively short stint if she can behave herself.
Judge Keith Schwartz has offered LiLo a deal for her alleged necklace heist.
Three months is the offer. That could be pared down to a measly 19 days because of good behavior, the non-violent nature of the crime andMore >
As of this writing, Miley Cyrus is getting slaughtered by Selena Gomez in her Grammy-based Fashion Face-Off. But the young singer/actress has something even more troubling with which to concern herself:
Her choice of role models.
Talking to Billy Bush and Access Hollywood guest correspondent Pauly D prior to last night’s ceremony, Miley said:
“I want to be Snooki, I love her. I’m obsessed, I follow her around,. She’s one of the only people I’ve asked for an autograph and a picture from because I love her and I’m inspired by her.”
Why, exactly, does Miley admire Snooki so?

In the 36 hours since the surprise announcement that MSNBC fired Keith Olbermann, his abrupt exit from a network he helped transform has raised questions.
Why fire a guy with such undisputed value to the network, a figure who – love him or hate him – became one of the best-known figures of the cable news era?
Insiders say no single event got him axed, but for all his eloquence, on-air presence and broadcasting skill, Olbermann was just too difficult to work with.
According to the Washington Post, Olbermann often clashed with his employers, condemning – often publicly – directives withMore >
Mean Girls is one of the best comedies of its generation.
The 2004 film catapulted Rachel McAdams to stardom, proved that Lindsay Lohan can actually be funny and jump-started the writing career of Tina Fey, who used the movie as a springboard to 30 Rock.
So it’s with a heavy heart that we post the following trailer for Mean Girls 2, a direct-to-video sequel that doesn’t feature any of the original’s leading ladies. Take a look now at the latest example of Hollywood being totally out of fresh ideas:
The 2010 Emmy Awards have drawn to a close and we have the winners in the order they appeared. Jimmy Fallon once again played host for the event and unlike some other shows (cough Oscars cough) the show ran in a decent amount of time, even if five different categories were included.
There’s a few surprises in the list and some very deserving wins. Here’s the full list:
Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series Eric Stonestreet, Modern Family
Writing for a Comedy Series Stephen Levitan and Christopher Lloyd, Modern Family

The cover for Sarah Palin’s newest book, America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag, has just been released by publisher HarperCollins.
The book is due out November 23, after the midterm elections and about a year after the release of her bestseller, Going Rogue: An American Life.
Expect the new book – and extensive book tour – to amplify the speculation over whether the ex-Alaska Governor will run for president in 2012.
It certainly would be interesting if she challenged Barack Obama.
Among the many, many things Palin ripped Obama about in the past was his writing two booksMore >
Let’s all get on our knees for Justin Bieber.
No, not for that reason.
But to bow down to this singer for reigning over YouTube with the most-watched video in that site’s history.

[HMG] – When Star Jones joined ABC’s ‘The View’ in 1997 her co-hosts were thrilled. Six years later she was effectively fired for abusing the show to promote her own wedding. And now Barbara Walters is right in her sights.
The 48-year old former host is writing an [apparently] fictional book called ‘The Lunch Club,’ which concerns the female hosts of a daytime talk-show who learn an ex-colleague, who left under a cloud and knows all their secrets is working again.
“I’ve met some fascinating people and been privy to many great stories and secrets,” Jones tells the Huff Post. “But while thisMore >

(HMG) – Most comic book fans know that Green Lantern is coming to the big screen soon, with Ryan Reynolds starring. But it’s now apparent Warner Bros. is committed to a full ensemble of DC characters similar to Marvel comics. With new Batman and Superman films in the writing stages and “Lantern” filming, Warner and DC Entertainment thought “Flash” was the next logical hero to tackle. Star DC writer Geoff Johns will take inspiration from his recent work with the Barry Allen incarnation of theMore >
(HMG) – As much as they were two peas in a pod in some ways, I could see the writing on the wall on this one. White Wolf and Running Bear are no more. TMZ got the scoop first that Heidi Montag has separated from husband Spencer Pratt. Not long ago Heidi had hired Malibu psychic Aiden Chase to replace Spencer Pratt as her business manger. It didn’t last long as she fired him two weeks later, but it was perhaps a cry for independence a week or so ago. Since then there were reports that Spencer was literally keeping Heidi on a short leash, only allowing her out three times in the pastMore >
