So there was some buzz lately that Linday Lohan was back on the positive track – showing up to her court ordered community service on time AND doing a good job, rehearsing with the cast of “Saturday Night Live” and hitting her marks, and just overall cleaning her act up. Well… until now, perhaps.
With less than two weeks to go until her probation ends, Lohan has been accused of a hit-and-run in Hollywood. Police have told the Associated Press that paparazzi surrounded Lohan’s car outside of a nightclub early Wednesday as she attempted to drive away. A man who works at the nearby Hookah Lounge says her car grazed his knee. Lohan then drove off; a police report wasn’t taken because the man wasn’t hurt, Los Angeles police Sgt. Mark Ro said. The sergeant said that he didn’t know who called police, but Lohan was gone when officers arrived. “We did not take a report for a hit-and-run,” Ro said. “We didn’t go looking for her.”
According to Lindsay? Nothing even happened.
The actress took to her Twitter account on Wednesday to deny any wrongdoing. “Scrape? This is all a complete lie,” she began. “I’ve been at community service. Last night, I attempted to wish a friend happy birthday, which I didn’t even get to do because I was freaked out by all the paparazzi. These false accusations are absurd.”
I dunno… sounds like we’re on Lindsay’s side with this one. But what do you think? Can she make a complete comeback? Let us know in the comment section below.

So ok, the worst kept secret is finally confirmed – Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is indeed pregnant.
The “Jersey Shore” star(?) announced her upcoming arrival on the cover of “Us Weekly” and, in the accompanying interview, revealed that she’s about fifteen weeks along with fiancé Jionni LaValle’s child. “I have different priorities now,” Polizzi told the magazine. “I don’t care what everybody else thinks. As long as I know I’m ready and he’s ready.” But, uh… is she ready? Anyway, Snooki said that she learned about her pregnancy right after New Years – even though her rep was denying rumors as recently as February first. Sneaky, sneaky.
Polizzi and LaValle have been dating for about a year and a half – and like any couple, they’ve had their ups and downs. About their long-distance courtship while Snooki was filming “Shore” in Italy, she said, “It sucked. From being with him six months every single day to not being with him, to being in another country and not talking to him, it was hard. It was legit like a long-distance relationship.” Which poses the question: What’s a non-legit long-distance relationship? Across town?
Anyway, it’s unclear if Snooki and Jionni will get hitched prior to the birth… or if they will at all. Polizzi’s rep wouldn’t comment on a potential wedding timeline, but back in January, Snooki did. “I was babies and marriage when I’m 26,” she said – at that point age 24. “I’m warning Jionni, two years. I’m just putting it out there, just letting him know.”
Wish she could have let us know about the baby sooner… we have to prepare. Cuz we're not ready for this.
Here’s the latest in the world of Britney! She’s just settled a lawsuit with her former bodyguard, a guy named Fernando Flores. Flores, a bodyguard who worked for Spears during her so-called “dark” period, said that the pop star is a wild, sex crazed maniac who flashed him… and more. Obviously, sources close to Spears say that the lawsuit is factless and that Flores is just trying to extort money.
Either way, Team Britney decided to end the lawsuit after going before a private mediator – versus facing a long court battle. The case is now officially closed.
So did Britney pay Flores any money? Looks like we’ll never know – no one is talking and no one will, since the terms of the settlement are completely confidential. Let’s just say this… if you happen to see Flores around town, crusing in a new Maserati or something, well…..
Also – will Spears be a judge on “X Factor?” Rumors have it that Simon Cowell has approached Spears to be a judge on the next season of the hit series. Granted, she’s not the only female name being tossed around to join the show (Avril Lavigne and Janet Jackson are two of the other strong rumors) but Cowell would not confirm who producers were talking to.
Cowell has played coy when asked about Spears, only saying, “Well, I’m fascinated by her. The fact that she’s still one of the most talked about – not just pop stars, but people – in the world today means that you’ve got this star power. This girl’s got resilience, and the fact that she’s survived this and she’s still hot, she’s still having hit records and she’s still controversial… there’s a reason for that.”
So yeah.. without saying that he’s pursuing Britney for the show, he pretty much said he’s pursuing Britney for the show. But what do you think? Would she bring valid industry clout to the series…or would she just be another Paul Abdul type, rambling on occasion and saying, well, some things that just don’t make any sense?
Stay tuned for the latest!

Actress Lindsay Lohan was in court again on Wednesday this week – earning praise from the judge!
Yep, that’s right. Judge Stephanie Sautner announced proudly to Lohan, “You’re in the home stretch!” Sautner was also impressed – for the third consecutive time – that Lindsay completed her therapy sessions and required community service. Now, is it right to be proud of someone when they complete something that’s REQUIRED by the court?! Sautner also proclaimed, “You seem to be getting your life back on track.”
Anyway, Lohan has one more progress hearing set for March 29. And by that date, she must have completed her final two weeks stint of community service at the LA County morgue, along with five more therapy sessions. And if she stays on track, she’ll be placed on “informal probation,” meaning that all she has to do is obey all laws. So… aren’t we ALL on “informal probation?”
Just a few hours after receiving her positive review from Judge Sautner, Lohan was back on the red carpet at an Oscars art event in Beverly Hills. We assume she was invited.
While her legal issues are almost over, what’s next for her career? Lohan is slated to host “Saturday Night Live” coming up in March, but can that jump start her back into getting film roles?
