Lindsay Lohan Steps Out with Ali and Sam

Following morning promotional duties alongside her mother Dina, Ali Lohan met up with big sister Lindsay Lohan and her BFF Samantha Ronson for a romp around the Big Apple on Wednesday (May 28).

An eyewitness tells: “(Lindsay) was all smiles and even held her sister’s hand in the street as they tried to blend in with the regular NY’ers.”

The source adds: “Samantha at times tried to stay a bit separate from the group as they walked across Park Avenue and on the Upper East side on a sunny day in Manhattan.”

As for Samantha’s stand-offish ways, maybe LiLo’s people told the duo to cool things down after the recent rumors claiming that Lindsay has gotten engaged to Ronson, who’s openly gay.

Trying to quell the nuptials chatter, Lohan’s rep, Leslie Sloane, wrote in an e-mail: “This is gross. She is not a bad girl. Leave her alone.”


T.I.'s Reality Show ??

TV producers can make a show about anything!

According to new reports, T.I. is turning his legal drama into an eight-episode MTV reality show.

Cameras will follow the rapper through many of his 1,000 hours of community service leading up to his yearlong prison sentence.

Shooting starts this summer.

T.I. begins serving his sentence - on gun charges - in early 2009, and MTV will air the series shortly after that.

Hey, he needs money to pay off his legal bills.(LOL)

R. Kelly's Old Assistant Makes Positive IDs

A woman who worked for R. Kelly from 2000-2006 testified in court on Tuesday that he is indeed the man in the tape central to the child pornography case unfolding in Chicago.

She also revealed that the young girl who allegedly appears in a sex video with R. Kelly visited the R&B star's recording studio regularly, did her homework there and once brought an overnight bag.

The aide, who's now a music industry exec., said she thinks "so highly of Mr. Kelly and his family," but nonetheless made the damning IDs.

Under cross-examination by defense, the ex-assistant admitted she could not identify either of them the first time she saw the tape, "I was in shock. I wanted to be 100 percent sure."

A woman who was involved in a 3 some with R. Kelly and the young girl in the video is expected to testify today, Wednesday.

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt: Wedding Bells?

Sure they had a monumental breakup on “The Hills” awhile back and subsequently called off their wedding. But Heidi Montag is singing a different tune about Spencer Pratt these days.

The “No More” singer has come out to press, saying that she’s definitely on track to marry her longtime boyfriend, courtesy of a secret make-or-break getaway to Mexico.

She said, “I’m ready to marry Spencer. He’s my soulmate.” And apparently Spencer’s convinced as well. He told press, “Heidi read me Biblical passages like ‘Honor thy wife.”

As for any definite details regarding the where and the when, the peroxide pair haven’t revealed any plans. But with these two’s track record for publicity, you can be sure the world will know with plenty of time for press coverage.

Lauren Conrad’s Bonding Time with Lo

Dressed in a blue and white striped top with black leggings, Lauren Conrad was spotted out bright and early on Wednesday morning (May 28).

The reality starlet was keeping fit with Hills co-star pal Lauren Bosworth - as the duo chatted it up while walking the pooch around the neighborhood.

As previously reported by Gossip Girls, LC is coming off of a busy past few days in which she took part in a fashion photo shoot at Les Deux.

The 22-year-old Laguna Beach native is also said to be working on new designs for her classy clothing line, The Lauren Conrad Collection.

Shia LaBeouf: Juiced About Big Screen Success

His new movie “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” is tearing up the box office, and Shia LaBeouf is experiencing a new career high.

The “Constantine” actor was spotted stopping by Robeks Juice yesterday for an energy drink prior to a breakfast meeting at Paty’s restaurant in Los Angeles.

And he looked to be in a hurry as he dashed across the parking lot sporting a ball cap, white t-shirt, skinny jeans, and a pair of retro-looking Nike running shoes.

As a result of his role in “Indiana Jones” critics are drawing parallels and comparisons to Marlon Brando’s character in “The Wild One.” Shia told press, “Steven [Spielberg, director] wrote a little note on my script that said, `OK, now it’s time to transform yourself into Mutt! Signed, Steven,’ and then he gave me three movies to watch- ‘Blackboard Jungle,’ ‘Rebel Without a Cause’ and — wouldn’t you know it? — ‘The Wild One.’ As though I was supposed to go home and watch `The Wild One’ and go, `Oh yeah, I see how Marlon Brando did it!’”

Southern-Fried Jessica Simpson

Her last pop album “A Public Affair” barely cracked the Billboard Top 20 before quickly falling off the charts, but Jessica Simpson may have just the thing to regain her status as one of America’s most popular singers.

The “With You” songstress has released her first country music single called “Come On Over” from the forth coming album due out in stores this September.

As for why she decided to transition to a different genre, her father/manager Joe Simpson explained, “She’s a singer from top to bottom. And everything in the music business, especially pop music, has moved away from singers. And I think country is the only pure, storytelling kind of genre left.”

In a recent radio station poll, 6,600 people voted on the new song with 58% of the results being positive. Perhaps the former Newlywed is onto something!


Dina and Ali Lohan’s Persistent Promotion

Their new reality show “Living Lohan” debuted on the E! network this past Monday and Dina and Ali Lohan are hot on the promotional trail.

The mother-daughter team stopped by the CW studios earlier today to chat a bit about the new show. And both ladies were looking top-notch.

Dina sported a dark tweed jacket overtop a blue blouse with a pair of black trousers and black heels, while her 14-year-old daughter Ali rocked a whispy white shirt underneath a black leather jacket with a pair of designer jeans and some super cute black-with-white tips shoes.

LiLo’s little sis recently told press that she hopes the show will help give the world a more accurate view of her showbiz family. “I want everyone to know that my mom is not a crazy freak who’s just trying to be famous and be in the spotlight. She’s not. She’s just helping her kids follow their dreams in life, just like any other mom would.”


Lindsay Lohan & Fam: Expensive Taste

It’s no secret that women absolutely love accessories. And when it comes to making a Lohan lady smile, nothing says ‘happiness’ like a designer handbag.

Lindsay, Dina, and Ali were all spotted on their way out of the swanky Peninsula Hotel in Manhattan yesterday. And one look at their high-priced purses revealed how expensive their tastes really are.

LiLo opted for the limited edition Dolce & Gabbana python skin bag- part of the D&G Summer 2008 collection. Only ten of them have been made thus far, hence the “Mean Girls” starlet’s desire for one.

She also made sure her feet were riding in the lap of luxury, sporting a pair of studded Christian Louboutin Mary Janes. But Lindsay was just the beginning of the fabulous Lohan line of apparel.

Younger sister Ali was also flossing some style, toting a Jimmy Choo Ramona Biker leather bag, which boasts a price tag of $1850. Not bad for a fourteen-year-old!

And, never to be left out, Dina Lohan had her own little piece of handbag heaven, carrying a Gucci horsebit bag as she rounded up her kids.

As for brother Cody, he didn’t seem to be caught up in the whole ordeal. He carried his Adidas jacket and marveled at his matriarch and two older siblings.

In what has been quite the lengthy process, Madonna has officially obtained permanent guardianship of son David Banda, who she adopted from Malawi.

“A judge in Malawi has given final approval to Madonna’s adoption of the 2-year-old boy she discovered in an orphanage in 2006,” the Associated Press reports
Banda’s biological father Yohane told Us magazine: “I am glad this is over now. I am happy for David. I gave Madonna 100% rights for my son. He is her son. It’s because of her benevolent nature that he assured me she will not cut ties with me.”

“We wish David and [his] mom, new dad, sister and brother would join us,” David’s biological father added. “We are now family

The former Spice Girl and her three-year-old were spotted having some mother-son bonding time at Pink Taco in Century City, California.
And Vic looked like a sexy momma in a casual black dress along with an uber-trendy Hermes Ostrich Birkin bag and a pair of matching pink platform heels.

Contrary to rumors, Mrs. Beckham says that she’s not trying to further her acting career by befriending Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. She told press, “I’m happy doing what I’m doing right now. I’m a terrible actress. Everyone thinks I’m only friends with Tom and Katie to be in a movie but it’s not true. I’ve turned down lots of roles.”

Ashley Tisdale and Jared Murillo: Lunch Date

PhotobucketThese days it seems like most Hollywood relationships are here one day, and gone the next. But Ashley Tisdale isn’t about to get thrown into that category.

The “High School Musical” hottie was spotted yesterday dispelling rumors that she and her boyfriend Jared Murillo had split up.

They were seen by the paparazzi grabbing lunch together at Paty’s Diner in Toluca Lake, California, looking very much in love.

And what’s not to love? Miss Tisdale looked absolutely yummy in a white longsleeved Victoria’s Secret shirt with a bum-hugging black and white striped skirt and a pair of strappy heels.


Ashlee Simpson to Take Wentz Family Name

Wearing a big smile on her face, Ashlee Simpson was spotted out for a bite to eat at Outback Steakhouse in Burbank, California on Tuesday afternoon (May 27).

The newly married “Outta My Head” singer is still beaming over her recent nuptials and honeymoon, also announcing to People magazine plans to officially take husband Pete Wentz’s name.

I think that that’s something that a woman should do when they’re marrying a man,” she tells. “It’s a tradition that I think is a great tradition.”

And to remove any possible confusion, the 23-year-old made it clear that “privately she’ll go by Ashlee Wentz and professionally she’ll be Ashlee Simpson-Wentz.”

Of his bride’s decision on whether or not to take on his family name, Pete said: “These decisions with Ashlee and her name are all completely up to Ashlee. I want her to do these kinds of things the way she wants to do them.”

And of being informed that Ashlee had indeed decided to become a Wentz, the Fall Out Boy rocker told: “Oh man, I was like upgrade me! You know what I’m saying? The Wentz family, our Christmas card just got upgraded! It feels insane. It feels unreal.”


Mariah Carey’s Day at the Ballpark

As previously reported by Gossip Girls, Mariah arrived at Narita International Airport on Sunday alongside her 27-year-old husband Nick Cannon.

Amy Winehouse is a Mess

While it’s definitely a good thing that Amy Winehouse has made the transition from late night partying to late night cleaning, it still remains to be seen if she’ll ever clean up her own act.

The troubled singer was spotted taking care of phase 2 of her spring cleaning tangent in the early hours of this morning. And she looked like a mess

With makeup caked on her face and some open cuts on her arms, the “Rehab” singer hauled trash out of her house, as well what appeared to be a broken vacuum.

Let’s just hope that she wasn’t throwing away any bras- from the looks of the safety-pinned undergarment that she was wearing, Amy needs all the help she can get in the underwear department
