Is Lindsay Lohan Getting Preferential Treatment In Jail?

These pictures (and video) show Dina and Ali Lohan going into the jail where Lindsay Lohan is currently incarcerated. Seem innocent enough, right? Not when you recall that inmates aren’t allowed to see visitors (outside of legal counsel) during the week. Oops.

E! News reports that Dina and Ali were inside for approximately an hour but they refused to speak to reporters, so we don’t know if they actually saw Lindsay or not. You have to wonder what they were doing there, then. Maybe they didn’t know and were trying to argue to see Lindsay?

Radar Online, however, reports they DID see Lindsay.

Tears were shed,” revealed a source, with knowledge of the family visit, as revealed.

“The visit was very emotional, but Lindsay’s spirits were lifted when she saw her mom and sister,” a source said about their first trip to the Lynwood jail. “Dina seemed relieved to see Lindsay and that she was staying strong.”

Radar Online also reports that apparently jail officials can allow visits ahead of scheduled times at their discretion.

I have to admit, though, that DOES seem unfair. I’m sure all the inmates would love to have visits from their family as soon as they arrive. This certainly wasn’t the wisest public image move.

Kate Major Says Michael Lohan Kicked Her In The Face And Threatened To Kill Her

WHAT? The Lohans cannot escape drama! Most of the time they’re the ones that are creating it!

More details came out from last night’s story! Kate Major is claiming that Michael Lohan called her a curse word, threatened to kill her and then kicked her in the face. Why you ask? Because she said she wanted to leave him. Did he really think THIS would make her change her mind about ending the relationship? My goodness.

My fiance Michael Lohan came home while I was sleeping in a sofa chair. He woke me up, yelling, ‘Why didn’t you pick up your cell phone, you stupid c**t.’”

Kate continues, “He then turned over the chair while I was still in it, tossing me to the floor. I crawled to the other side of the room to get away from him. He walked over to me, took his shoe off and kicked me in my face while I was still on the ground. He stood over me and said, ‘I’m going to go back to jail cause of you, cause I will kill you.’”

Kate says, “He said all of this to me cause he is afraid I’m going to leave him. I am very afraid of him.”

Do you believe her? This group is really into attention. The police were called and while Michael admits there was an argument he denies actually touching Kate.

Michael Lohan Accused Of Domestic Violence

Michael Lohan’s drama is never-ending. His fiancé, Kate Major, is claiming that right before Michael flew to L.A. for Lindsay’s hearing they got into a physical altercation. Kate filed a report with the Southampton police, claiming that Michael shoved her over a chair, hurting her shoulder. She also says that Michael kicked her in the face while she was on the ground!

TMZ contacted Michael and he said the two DID argue about their upcoming TV show, but claims he didn’t touch her and she’s making up the abuse story. TV show? Oy.

Who do you believe?

Sheriff Investigating Extortion Claims Against Oksana Grigorieva

I haven’t been posting every bit of drama between Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva because I would be typing something new every 10 minutes! I can barely keep track of all the new developments.

The latest news is that Mel has convinced the sheriff’s department to take a look at his claims that Oksana tried to extort money from him.

“I can confirm that the Sheriff’s Department is looking into extortion allegations that have been brought to our attention,” Los Angeles Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore tells E! News.

According to E!, the sheriff’s department decided to investigate after Mel and his lawyers met with them yesterday to present their side of the story. So far Mel hasn’t been charged in the alleged abuse of Oksana and their daughter.

Are you keeping updated on the Mel/Oksana saga? Are you just waiting around to see if they determine his guilt/innocence? I think everyone is waiting to hear if those tapes are legit.

No Visitors For Lindsay Lohan Until Saturday

Lindsay Lohan won’t be allowed visitors in prison until Saturday. That is… if she’s still behind bars at that point. {grumble grumble grumble}

The troubled actress began her “90 day prison sentence” yesterday and according to Lynwood’s Century Regional Detention Facility (CRDF) in California cannot receive guests until the weekend.

Criminal attorney Steve Cron said:

“CRDF has a visiting area where visitors are talking through a glass window through a telephone to inmates.

“It’s not intimate or warm and cuddly – but it’s easier for the Sheriff’s department not to have to put everyone through the same security process.”

It is being reported that Lindsay attempted to bring along a copy of Ernest Hemingway’s ‘The Old Man & The Sea’, but was denied. Wonder why you can’t bring books? You would think reading would be encouraged.

It is believed Lindsay will only serve 14 days of her 90 day jail sentence due to “prison overcrowding”. How does that make you feel?

Lindsay Lohan’s Mug Shot: Smirking? Likely To Only Serve 2 Weeks

Lindsay Lohan’s mug shot from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department was released online this afternoon and I’m just curious – do you think she’s smirking? It seems most of the celebrity gossip and news sites are calling it a smirk, but I’m not sure I see it?

So, let’s dish about this. Does it look like a cocky smirk? Do you think she’s amused by the ordeal? Or is the partial smile just an attempt to not have an awful-looking mug shot hit the web? It’s certainly better than her original one from back in 2007. ;) I didn’t realize until today that it was almost exactly 3 years ago that Lindsay got the DUI from which this probation violation stint in jail is stemming from. It was July 24th. Weird.

Updated to add: A spokesman says that Lindsay will likely only spend approximately 2 weeks in jail, instead of the earlier estimate of 23 days.

Department spokesman Steve Whitmore says Lohan is likely to be released on Aug. 1 or 2. The projected release date reflects all the credits Lohan is likely to receive.

Snooki Says ‘Jersey Shore’ Cast Can’t Blame Her For Being In Demand

In an interview with Steppin’ Out magazine, ‘Jersey Shore’ star Snooki says that in many ways she hasn’t changed at all since joining the show. She talks about which cast members she’s close to.

“Myself, Pauly, Vinny and Jenny [J-Woww], we’ve all stayed the same,” she says”We’re the closet friends in the house. I trust them with my life…It hasn’t gotten to our heads.”

But has she gotten a little bit egotistical? She talks about being in demand (along with The Situation):

“I know the others want the same opportunities that Mike and I get, but we don’t control those things,” “The media isn’t asking for the others so they can’t really be mad at me.”

“I can understand why the others might be jealous. They aren’t doing anything, but they should still be happy for me

That’s a little bit cold considering that J-Woww has her own clothing line and Ronnie & J-Woww are writing a book. I wouldn’t exactly say they “aren’t doing anything”.

Snooki also shared that she longs for the days before she became famous:

“I miss my old life,” she sighs. “I miss being able to be around my family and at home. I miss going out with my friends and going out to a bar. I can’t do that anymore. When I try to do that, I get attacked by the fans.”

Do you think there will be some tension over her comments? Maybe that’s what the show’s producers are hoping for. ;)
