… if my mom was best known for trying to censor anything she could get her hands on!
Al Gore III, son of former Presidential candidate and environmentalist (and ManBearPig hunter) Al Gore, was arrested early this morning for doing 100 MPH with a boatload of drugs in his car, including pot (which we know he’s a big fan of after his December 2003 arrest for marijuana possession), Valium, Vicodin, Xanax, and the ADD drug Adderall.
Hey, at least he was driving a Prius!
Pete Doherty never fails to disappoint. While we may have a bargain-basement version of a judge annoyance in Paris Hilton, Pete has made a career out of annoying judges, ignoring terms of probation, and just about anything else he thought he could get away with.
In today’s UK courtroom festivities, good old Pete didn’t disappoint. He showed up so late for his hearing that the judge called his lawyer into court TWICE to explain why his client wasn’t showing up, and finally issued a warrant for his arrest without bail right before Pete wandered in.
My guess is that he wanted to alter his state a little bit before having to face the big scary judge. He evidently decided at that point he was best off just pleading guilty, which he did… guilty of possession of crack, heroin, pot, and ketamine, as well as driving while being Pete Doherty under the influence.
The judge pointed out that him driving a car is pretty much the same as letting a crazy person with a rocket launcher out on the streets, but deferred sentencing until August providing Doherty enter a treatment program by July 16.
Judge? We’ve seen this before. Send his sorry ass to jail. He is NEVER going to clean up. Sheesh. Even Robert Downey, Jr. managed to get straight. There is NO hope for this guy.
I skipped Paris Hilton’s interview last night with Larry King, mainly because I am so damn bored of her I could scream and I was otherwise occupied listening to my new Kelly Clarkson and White Stripes albums to bother getting up and turning on the TV.
Good thing too, or I’d have likely peed myself laughing when she told Larry THREE TIMES that no, she hasn’t done drugs when asked. Of course, that just means she’s stupid (from the drugs??) because WE’VE ALL SEEN PICTURES AND VIDEOS YOU STUPID WHORE.
TSG was kind enough to provide various video excerpts, in case anyone was still confused.
First, I see a headline that someone has screenshots of a video of Callum Best doing lines off a hooker. So, I assume that someone has screenshots of him doing coke off Lindsay Lohan, but NO! Dlisted assures us that it’s not Lindsay, but ANOTHER person who is actually a hooker (doesn’t just play one in the tabloids).
There’s just a really classy group of people hanging around in Hollywood right now, isn’t there? No word on whether this was before or after the alleged break-up. Or, you know, whether it might have been part of a “Good Luck in Rehab, Linds” party.
Do you ever wonder if Hollywood exists in a separate reality from the rest of us?
TMZ has a report that Mischa Barton was rushed to the ER, and is currently hospitalized due to “drinking alcohol while on antibiotics.” Please note those should be HUGE air quotes. A REALLY quick check online notes that it’s really an urban legend that you can’t drink alcohol when on antibiotics. Note to TMZ and dumbass publicists: it’s helpful to fact-check before running with a BS story.
Perez Hilton is carrying a different version of events that I’m buying way more easily: Barton, who has been spotted more than once smoking a big ole fattie when driving, was so wasted on ’shrooms that she thought she was dying.
Since she’s still in the hospital for an alleged reaction that doesn’t actually exist, I’m going with a score of Perez: 1, TMZ: 0. And I’m disappointed that publicists think everyone is that stupid they can’t do a simple Google search.
Also, the more I think about it? The more I’m thinking ’shrooms would explain most of her questionable fashion choices. Like the diaper.
After ramming her car into, um a curb? A light post? Oh wait… a tree! Lindsay Lohan was FINALLY busted and charged with DUI. Various reports say that she was cited for driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, and that cocaine may have been found in her trashed Mercedes.
Splash has video of her walking away from the accident, so the “cited and released for treatment” thing is pretty much another example of the power of celebrity; you tell me any regular Joe who was getting busted for DUI would be allowed to walk away for “treatment.”
I think it’s a sad commentary that these celebs generally don’t get busted until they run into something. You know she’s done it 100x before. And she’s not even legal for over a month.
Any hope she’ll go to jail? $10 says by tomorrow we get a little ditty penned by Leslie Sloane Zelnick that she’s in rehab and the press should “respect her privacy.”
HOW did I miss this? My beloved drug-pickled loser Pete Doherty was arrested again! I seriously need to add him to my dead pool because there is no way this man is going to live much longer. He’s been in rehab countless times, and has a freaking IMPLANT to keep him off drugs, and he still finds a way around it.
I seriously have no idea what Kate Moss sees in this mess. I can only assume that when he pulls himself together, he gives the best oral sex EVER because I can’t determine a single redeeming quality he has. He may have been attractive at some point in the long-forgotten past, but now he looks pretty much like any drunk homeless person you can see on a doorstep.
I wonder what happens if they find another implant to try to clean him up? Will he start smoking Drano or something? I once met two guys much like Pete. I went over to their apartment with my boyfriend and these two had a whole collection of pipes they were scraping the resin off to get high. These two would smoke toothpaste, and were the first people I ever knew who thought huffing was a career choice. It’s hard to believe that someone as messed up as those two losers could be famous and dating a supermodel.
Tom Sizemore was an actor who probably could have been pretty successful if, you know, he hadn’t hooked up with THE Hollywood Madam, Heidi Fleiss, and his ultimate best friend, drugs.
So rather than have a successful acting career, he’s had a VERY successful tabloid career, being arrested for beating up on Heidi Fleiss and generally acting like a guest on Jerry Springer’s show.
Coming one step closer to completeing his downward spiral to a broke, homeless death, Sizemore was busted in front of a Sheraton Four Points in Bakersfield, California for possession of meth. This, of course, happened after he and a buddy caused a ruckus in the lobby when they couldn’t get a room. I’m not sure whether the hotel didn’t have any vacancies or the hotel folks just recognized a messed up freak.
All he needs now is a trailer and a sister to bang to hit the Springer trifecta.
The NY Daily News posted a thinly veiled blind item that can only be referring to Lindsay Lohan:
Which hard-partying starlet, we hear, will soon be seeking a new publicity rep? The drug and alcohol gossip was one thing, but she hates those pesky lesbian rumors that keep turning up in print.
So Britney wants to fire her manager. Paris fires and then rehires her publicist, and now Lindsay is looking for a new lackey?
Girls, let me explain this in terms even you three could understand. Your PUBLICISTS and MANAGERS are responsible for your careers and publicizing said careers. Wait… too complicated. The people that work for you are supposed to get you jobs and talk to the press about your jobs and the cool things you do. The people that work for you can’t do much about the fact that you apparently have fewer brain cells than your average $2.00 whore, flash your anatomy like the same $2.00 whore, and then get caught doing things like driving drunk, snorting coke, or smoking a big fatty at a concert attended by thousands of people with camera phones. Even poor people have camera phones.

Okay, bear with me here. Ordinarily, I look at the stories on News of the World and just ignore them. They are well known for making up stories and generally you can’t trust anything they have to say.
However, when a story hits News of the World that includes a story about Lindsay Lohan hoovering up 20 lines of coke in an 8-hour period, I’m pretty skeptical, because unless she’s hiding a John Belushi tapeworm inside her, she oughta be dead. However, NotW ALSO included some sketchy photos that do make it look like Linds was at least helping a friend do some lines. Couple that with the Page Six reports this week that SOMEONE had a cell phone video of Lindsay that wasn’t all that nicey-nice, and you’ve got yourself a possible true story.
