She may be clean and sober, but a recent report in News of the World claims Lindsay Lohan faces a new challenge — getting out of debt! After checking out of the Cirque Lodge, lil’ LiLo is so cash-poor from the high cost of drugs and rehabilitation, she’s staying in a guest house owned by executive producer and billionaire financier Tom Gores.
“Lindsay doesn't have much choice as she is totally broke,” a source told the newspaper. “The only reason she's coming back to L.A. is to earn some money fast. She still thinks nothing of blowing thousands of dollars on a single night of partying. And the amount she has wasted putting cocaine up her nose is disgusting. Even she has lost count.”
Not tallying the untold money spent on her alleged cocaine use, Lindsay’s other bills mounted quickly over the last year. NOTW states that one hotel stay alone ran over a million dollars once the high cost of keeping chauffeurs on standby and sipping Cristal were factored in. Another million reportedly went to clothes, plus 70Gs for hairstyles and “tanning” (otherwise known as LiLo’s orange glow), as well as hefty tabs for cars, parties and lawyers.
And last, there was the major expense for treatment. The three well-publicized rehab stays came with huge price tags, costing $30,000, $45,000 and $62,000 respectively. “Rehab does not come cheap and Lindsay has spent a fortune on it this year,” the source said. “Her first two stays there sadly proved a complete waste of money for her.” And shockingly, NOTW’s source added, “I can't see this time being any different.”
Sporty Spice noshes her way to bigger breastsUnlike some of her Spice Girl cohorts, Mel C doesn’t plan on breast augmentation surgery. But she isn’t leaving things up to nature, either. The Mumbai Mirror reports that Sporty Spice is bound for a bigger bosom by way of cookies — Japanese “F-Cup” cookies, to be exact.
The paper quoted an interview on BBC Radio in which Sporty Spice discussed her newfound multi-purpose snacks. “I’ll be a guinea pig for them, can you imagine if my boobs got bigger suddenly? That’d be great!”
The cookies are chock full of trans fats “which are sent directly to the breast area” and contain 50mg of the “breast-enhancing herb Pueraria Mirifica,” according to the manufacturer’s literature. The company claims full cup increase is possible with just two cookies a day. But when it comes to cookies, Mel C may be more likely to see her backside increase!
Dish on the flyAt this point, it would almost be easier to list the “It” guys “Umbrella” singer Rihanna hasn’t dated. Past rumors had her in the arms of Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Bow Wow, Shia LaBeouf, Chris Brown, Omarion and many others. Now, a story in OK! adds Josh Hartnett to the list. According to the magazine, the “30 Days of Night” star met up with Rihanna at New York’s Pink Elephant last week. “He walked in and made a beeline straight to her table,” a spy told OK! “Right away, they were dancing, drinking Dom Perignon and making out right at the table.” … Better strap on some Depends before attending a special screening of any film starring Michael Caine. ContactMusic reports that the thespian takes potty breaks personally. “He's at the back checking, and one of Michael's guides for how the movie's going is if anyone gets up to go to the loo — he doesn't like that,” said actor/director Kenneth Branagh. “You get to the point where you think he's gonna go to the bathroom and bring them back.”
