Lindsay Lohan’s Chaotic 24 Hours Includes Spitting, Hitting & Not Quitting The Booze
Lindsay Lohan has had quite a bout during the past 24 hours. After starting her Wednesday at MSG watching Justin Bieber and The Wanted, Lindsay ended her night in the slammer thanks to her altercation with a woman at Avenue nigh club in Chelsea. But what about the details in between?
“Lindsay was completely out of control. She was drinking way too much booze and was doing cocaine,” the insider revealed. The whole thing started when the girl in the club asked to take a picture with Lindsay. Lindsay said no and was really rude about it, so the girl just continued dancing with her friends.”
After that Lindsay all of a sudden went wild. According to the source, she was “kicking and screaming, cursing at the girl and then spit at her. The girl looked like she wanted to fight back at Lindsay, but was too startled by all the commotion to react.”
What makes it even better is that the woman Lindsay attacked is a psychic, who says she KNEW she was bound to meet Lindsay, she just didn’t for seek the altercation.
It’s all downhill for Lindsay once again, with her latest reviews of Liz & Dick receiving some of the worst reviews in her career. She’s hit the bottle again, this time back to her normal chugging of 2 liters of vodka a day.
God bless her heart..she’s a lost soul and needs some guidance. But at this point, who is take care of her? Her parents? That’s a lost cause. Her friends? They are more than likely just as bad as Lilo! Time for some Oprah!
Matt Lauer Will Be Fired… But When?
The long time Today show host Matt Lauer is one step closer to getting the pink slip! After months of low ratings, and employee firings, The Today Show is becoming frantic on what to do with their sinking ship of a morning show.
“News executive Alexandra Wallace has told NBC bosses she will have to replace Matt if the ratings continue to tank,” a show insider tells RadarOnline.com. Matt’s contract pays him $25 million-a-year, and he just signed an extension to that deal last year before the ratings started falling.
So when it Matt’s curtain call? If the ratings don’t improve by February, Lauer will more than likely be replaced after that.
“The replacement is likely to be Willie Geist. He has been wildly popular with viewers and the crew since he was named co-host of the third hour of the show.”
