While Lindsay Lohan’s tears flowed in the courtroom Tuesday, her attorney requested a two-week wait before the troubled actress begins serving her 90-day (or thereabout) jail sentence. The judge agreed, but friends now fear that giving Lohan what she asked for wasn’t exactly what she needed.
According to TMZ, those closest to Lohan worry that a final stretch of stress-filled free time could give the embattled actress a chance to fall off the wagon in a big way — an incident that would likely lead to even more jail time.
Evidently it’s that possibility of an extended sentence that causes the most concern for LiLo’s pals, who are unsure if the emotionally fragile star could handle the prospect of more hard time without harming herself.
Reality TV came between Grammer, wife
Although neither party has given an official reason for their split beyond the usual “irreconcilable differences,” Kelsey Grammer and wife Camille Donatacci seemed to have suffered from reality TV-related woes. According to PopEater, the pair couldn’t get beyond the differences that a deal with the Bravo network brought about.
“Camille misses her days in the spotlight as a Playboy model and dancer,” a Donatacci pal explained. “After marrying 'Frasier' in 1997, Camille gave up her career to become his wife. Now, she has the opportunity to break out on her own in a reality TV show and she isn't going to let it pass her by.”
The show in question is the next evolution of Bravo’s can’t-look-away female franchise “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” Donatacci is reported to be a cast member, but it’s a role that didn’t rate Grammer’s approval.
“He's one of the biggest TV stars in the world," another insider said. “It doesn't matter how much he loves his wife, Kelsey would never appear on a reality TV show. He is starring in a huge Broadway hit, and appearing on Bravo as a real house-husband was simply never going to happen.”
Grammer recently told readers of his members-only blog, "Camille and I had been discussing the possibility of a separation for some time ... She finally decided she should file. I respect her for this decision.”
Former ‘Bachelor’ contestants side with Vienna
Viewing Monday night’s ever so uncomfortable confrontation between “Bachelor” Jake Pavelka and his former fiancée, Vienna Girardi, was all it took for some former contestants to pick a side in the no-holds-barred breakup. So far the support falls overwhelmingly for Girardi.
“I think Vienna did a good job,” Elizabeth Kitt, who competed for Pavelka’s affections on the “Bachelor,” wrote in a Facebook post later published on Radar Online. “I think Jake seemed unsupportive of her, and put her down a lot. He seems very selfish, and my heart goes out to Vienna on this one.”
Kitt wasn’t the only “On the Wings of Love” alum to side against the main man, as Ashleigh Hunt joined Team Vienna, too.
“Jake the fake ... so nice to see his true colors. Xoxo @ViennaGirardi, you look great and way too good for him,” Hunt tweeted.
Even “Bachelorette” DeAnna Pappas had no problem bashing Pavelka and admitting to Us Weekly that she felt “really sorry for Vienna.” Her own made-for-TV ex felt much the same.
“I honestly can't believe ABC ran this special,” Jesse Csincsak confessed to Radar Online. “It made Jake, their investment, look like an arrogant idiot.”
At least Pavelka can take comfort in the neutral words of the finalist who lost her chance when the pilot picked Girardi.
“I wouldn't say whether it was his or her fault,” Tenley Molzahn told Zap2it. “It takes two to tango.”
Dish on the fly
Want to smell like an action star? Bruce Willis, in conjunction with LR Health & Beauty Systems, has just the thing — a high-end fragrance line for all those “Die Hard” types. And if eau de parfum doesn’t sound mucho macho enough for the body spray crowd, the COO of the German cosmetics company behind Willis’ self-named release assures fans that it is. “I personally feel that the new Bruce Willis fragrance is the manliest scent in the world,” Tilo Plöger declared in a quote published to United Networker. … After receiving a sound slamming from nearly every animal rights group around, Elle Macpherson has done a complete about-face on the subject of rhino horn treatments. The former supermodel boasted about the efficacy and even the taste of such illegal products in an interview with the Sunday Times, but has since responded to criticism by denying her earlier admission. She “never knowingly consumed or encouraged the use or consumption of any products which contain material derived from endangered species,” Macpherson said in what seemed like a PR rep-composed response to News.com.au. Furthermore, she regrets “any distress or offence that her banter with an interviewer might have caused.” … Joining such famed information-superhighway Luddites as Princeand Miley Cyrus, actress Cameron Diaz admits the World Wide Web just isn’t for her. “I don’t have time! I’m working! And I don’t like the Internet,” the “Knight and Day” star said when asked about her online habits during an interview with Harper’s Bazaar. “I find it really, really dangerous.” Really?
