Between working at the morgue and befriending Italian men, Lindsay Lohan has reportedly found time to begin penning her memoirs, which is part “Little Girl Lost” by Drew Barrymore and part inside look at being an “it” girl.
OK! Magazine reports that she’s sold on making the book happen, but money woes might be her motivation.
The mag says that Lohan, who’s widely reported to be cash poor after spending months at rehab, actually had to borrow $10,000 from pal Steve-O. Lohan’s rep denies this, but pals close to the Razzie-nominated starlet say Lohan is starting to worry. “She regrets all the cash she threw around the last couple years,” one friend told me. “She needs everything to fall into place and get her back on track, and fast.”
The Clintons are Planet Hollywood fans!Wondering where you might run into the Clintons after the Florida primary returns roll in on Tuesday? If they’re creatures of habit, the nearest Planet Hollywood might be a good bet.
A source from inside the Las Vegas Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino told me that Hillary and Bill both spent time there, where “crowds cheered them on.” Bill went so far as to “meet with the culinary team” of Planet Hollywood, too.
Precisely what the meeting was about is under wraps (recipe swap?), but the Clintons ended up passing on the institution’s casual fare and ordered up some sushi from Koi instead.
Stars support Tom Cruise
Adam Sandler, Dustin Hoffman and Ben Stiller are just a few of the celebs who spoke out in defense of their friend Tom Cruise in this week’s People magazine.
Outraged over the allegations in Andrew Morton’s unauthorized biography of Cruise, Sandler told the mag, “To see anyone's private life invaded and mocked like this is sickening. It’s especially gross when it happens to a guy like Cruise, who's a great dad, a great husband and a great friend.”
One person absent from the list of Cruise supporters is Jerry O’Connell, whose viral video in which he mock’s Cruise’s Scientology pitch is making the rounds. O’Connell’s spoof might be in good fun, but it’s probably safe to presume that O’Connell won’t be in contention for any roles in upcoming United Artists films.
Will ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ return?
Even though HBO hit “Curb Your Enthusiasm” is a largely unscripted comedy, Cheryl Hines, who plays creator and co-star Larry David’s wife on the show, said, “There’s a 50/50 chance that it (‘Curb’) will be back. I feel like Larry wants to.”
Hines has been busy at work producing one of the few original television offerings available during the strike, “Hollywood Residential,” which premiered on Starz Jan. 23. The show’s main character is an aspiring actor who gets a gig doing a celebrity home makeover show. The catch is that real celebrities are used on the show, and every episode ends in the celeb’s home makeover going disastrously wrong.
Among the real celebrities in the series is our favorite “Idol” judge, Paula Abdul. “She thought it would be funny to do,” Hines said. And what hijinks did the “American Idol” judge bring to the show? Hines was tight-lipped, but conceded, “Paula did a funny version of herself. They’re really there to make fun of themselves. People think they know who celebrities are, but really they don’t.”
“Headcase,” another new series by Starz starring Alexandra Wentworth, also premiered Jan. 23.
Weekend box office
When you consider the curiousity factor over seeing “Rambo” returns to theaters along with the sheer number of screens—3,100 to be exact—it seems impossible to imagine a Monday that doesn't have the Stalone flick winning the box office. Other films opening this weekend include “Meet the Spartans,” a spoof comedy, “Untraceable” with Diane Lane, and “Michael Clayton” re-enters wide release as well. Look to “Rambo” for the win.
