COPS CALLED OVER LINDSAY/DINA FIGHT!
Lindsay Lohan and her mother Dina got into a huge fight early yesterday morning that ended with cops being called to Dina’s Long Island home. TMZ claimed the argument started after the pair spent the night partying together in the Big Apple. Lindsay and Dina were in a limo headed back to Dina’s Merrick home when Lindsay called her father Michael claiming she was being kidnapped by her mother. She is also heard saying, “Dad, she’s on cocaine. She’s like touching her neck and s**t.” Dina and Lindsay’s argument was apparently over money. According to reports, Lindsay gave Dina $40,000 in order to save her mom’s home from foreclosure. But now Lindsay wants the money back. She reportedly told her dad, “She's saying disgusting things to me ... I'm dead to her now." Lindsay also told Michael, “She’s like the f**king devil right now” and said she had a gash on her leg from the incident. Michael’s 911 call described the incident as a case of domestic violence, claiming Lindsay was being held against her will by Dina and the driver. Cops took an incident report, but no arrests were made.

"I walked into Harrah's bar around five in the morning and saw Joe Giudice conversing with a young girl," said Rosie. "I know it wasn't Teresa. She looked more like a working girl, although I can't prove it." Rosie said she saw Joe rubbing the woman’s face and stroking her hair, before they eventually left together. Said Rosie, “Joe had his arm around the girl and as they walked off to grab a cab together I heard his friend say something like, 'Life is great.'"

JANET DENIES SHE HELD UP MICHAEL’S FUNERAL!
Janet Jackson is denying a story in Vanity Fair magazine that claimed she delayed her brother Michael’s funeral until she was reimbursed the $40,000 deposit she had laid out to secure his plot. "Ms. Jackson never delayed the funeral in any way," her lawyer Blair G. Brown wrote in the letter sent to the magazine. "In fact, she paid for the funeral and was reimbursed for some of those expenses by Michael Jackson's estate in the year after the services took place….To falsely accuse Ms. Jackson of holding up her brother's funeral over money is outrageous." Jackson is demanding Vanity Fair publish a retraction of the statements, which the singer’s team calls “false and defamatory.”
Q-Janet’s third studio album was her first record to top the Billboard 200, and had five singles peak in the top five on the Billboard Hot 100. What was it called? Control
WILDE DENIES SEX LIFE COMMENTS!
Olivia Wilde is denying she recently made some racy comments about her sex life. Vulture reported that Wilde explained the reason for the end of her marriage to Tao Ruspoli (they divorced in 2011) by saying, “I felt like my vagina died. Turned off. Lights out.” She also allegedly talked about her current relationship with Jason Sudeikis saying she is “blissfully, hopefully, wildly in love,” and that she and her beau of nine months, “have sex like Kenyan marathon runners.” But Wilde is now saying the comments were taken out of context. They were part of a self-penned monologue which she performed at a Glamour magazine event, and says Vulture assumed she was talking about the men in her life, even though she never named names. “The ‘These Girls’ monologues at Joe’s Pub were not meant for publication, and, in context, were a celebration of LOVE, girls, and honesty,” she wrote on Twitter. “Sneaky recorders are everywhere these days, but performance art doesn’t always translate accurately to tabloid interpretation.”
Q-In 2011, Wilde starred opposite Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford in what big screen western? Cowboys & Aliens

The 26-year-old grew up in a small village in Ireland, and recently moved to Los Angeles to study to be a beautician. “She’s very focused on making this work and will do anything she can to make sure she’s successful,” claims a source. “And dating Jim certainly can’t hurt her career. His status will certainly give her a leg up in the industry and open doors for her that could have been more difficult if she didn’t know him.”

Her husband seemed agitated by it,” a source told the paper. The annoyed hubby reportedly told Gere to “get the f*** out of here.” But Gere denies the Post’s version of the incident. “Reality is, he was at a table with his agents and their wives,” said his spokesperson. “On his way out, he stopped to say hi to the people at that table, and joked with the people briefly before leaving.”

Hopefully in the future we’ll get a chance to work together.” Internet rumors are also suggesting Clint’s anti-Obama speech at the RNC may have been an issue as well, since both Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z are huge supporters of President Obama.
