Gina J’s Dirty Laundry August 21st
One of the 1D boys gets engaged, Lindsay Lohan and Oprah get low ratings, and Kanye West is keeping it too real to become an American Idol Judge. All these stories and more in today’s Dirty Laundry…
Kanye West is about to be sued by the photographer he attacked at LAX last month and the lawyer he will face??? Gloria Allred!! She’s holding a press conference today.
And Kanye appears on Kris Jenner’s talk show this Friday. It’s the finale and then FOX will make the decision on whether to pick up the show for a full series… so she wants big ratings. What did she do?? Kanye showed the first photo of North West
Other reports are claiming that Kanye was offered the final spot on the American Idol judging panel but he turned it down because: “He didn’t want to go that mainstream. He didn’t want to lose any street cred. So he turned it down.” And rumors are that Sean Combs turned it down because Jennifer Lopez signed back on… and they used to date back in the day.
Lindsay Lohan’s exclusive sit-down with Oprah Winfrey averaged only 892,000 viewers!!! And was she lying about her cocaine use again?? First she said that she’s only done it 3 to 4 times and then she told Oprah is was between 10-15 times…well, a friend of hers that always partied with her said it’s more than that…the friend claims that Lindsay did cocaine at least 20 times during a party week a few months ago!
Simon Cowell made his first public confirmation that he’s having a baby and said “things are changing in my life right now, for the better.” He added, “I’m proud to be a dad.”
Authorities are suspicious of the cause of Lisa Robin Kelly’s death and both the L.A. County Coroner and the L.A. County Sheriff are conducting separate investigations. Looks like the L.A. County Coroner never got a call from the rehab facility where Kelly died until about 4 hours later! The doctor at the rehab said she died from an embolism but the coroner said there’s no way to know if someone died of an embolism without performing an autopsy.
More info came out about the suicide of Bachelor contestant Gia Allemand. She had a fight with her boyfriend hours before she killed herself, and he told her “I don’t love you anymore.” Gia was on the phone with her mother when she hung herself.
DMX was arrested in South Carolina last night after being pulled over by police. He was a passenger in the car and one of the cops recognized him. He had a warrant out for his arrest from a previous case. DMX claims it was a set up because the driver made a legal U-turn and shouldn’t have been pulled over.
David Cassidy was arrested for drunk driving in upstate NY early this morning. He now faces felony drunk driving because he had a prior DUI in Florida.
Ashton Kutcher is television’s highest paid prime-time actor, earning $750,000 per episode of CBS’s Two and a Half Men!!! But Judge Judy beats EVERYONE on TV with $47 million a year!
More than 500 David Hasselhoff signs where he’s advertising iced coffee have been stolen in several states. It got serious last night right here at a Cumberland Farms in Shelton, CT. A worker at the store tried to get the signs back and was struck and dragged by the SUV and landed on his head.
Dick Van Dyke, 87, is joking about his near death experience when he was dragged from his burning car the other day. He calls himself the barefoot prince of Malibu on Twitter and he posted a poem yesterday about the incident:
“I once drove a car that could fly
I had never driven so high
But, I recently found
Even back on the ground
U still can be left high and dry“
He also posted a photo of the burned car and said, “Used Jag for sale REAL CHEAP!!”
