Partying star Lindsay Lohan upset the folks at “Live with Regis & Kelly” by pulling out of the show at the last minute yesterday, says an insider.
Lohan had attended the glitzy “King Kong” premiere in Manhattan Monday night and was also spotted enjoying herself at an after-party, but her handlers called the popular chat show the next morning, saying Lohan wouldn’t show up as scheduled because she had “food poisoning.”
The cancellation came after the show had started, too late to book another suitable guest and the show producers were “most unhappy” with Lohan, says a source. “Canceling that late is very bad form,” says an insider from another show, who was unsympathetic to the “food poisoning” explanation. “Right,” sniffs the source. “Even if that’s true, when you’re booked on a morning talk show, you are very careful about what you eat and drink the night before.”
“I can confirm only that she was booked on the show and she did cancel,” a spokeswoman for the show told The Scoop. “For anything other than that you’ll have to go through her publicist.” Lohan’s rep, however didn’t respond to requests for comment.

Now that Naomi Watts has officially achieved stardom, she wants to slow down and become a mother. “I've got friends who are full-time mums and just seeing how great their children are because they are devoting their lives to being a good mum, I really commend that,” the “King Kong” actress told The Australian. “I think [acting] will be something that always interests me, but certainly not as much. I certainly feel like I'm on the wind down. When I say that I don't mean I'm giving up. I mean one movie a year or every couple of years. There are a lot of other things I'd like to do.” ...
