Lindsay Lohan a Suspect in Assault Case at Rehab [Blame The Parents?]

I’m not the fan of celebrity news that some folks are, but I admit to having an above average interest in the train-wreck that is Lindsay Lohan. She went to rehab, which is usually a good thing. But according to People.com, Lohan is now a suspect in an assault case.

At what point do you do some kind of major league intervention? Or lock up her parents? Michael Lohan will probably be on any talk show who will have him, talking about his daughter. And Dina. Is she any better? Didn’t she try to turn Lindsay’s younger sister into a star, despite the fact that things were going less than well for her older daughter?

It can’t be JUST the pressures of celebrityhood that turns someone into a kook. Look at Mel Gibson. No, really. Look at him. He’s holding a beaver.

In August it was reported that Mel Gibson’s father thinks the Pope is gay. And then there’s that whole “the Holocaust didn’t happen” thing. We can safely imagine that Mel probably grew up hearing that kind of stuff all the time. (We weren’t there, hence the “probably.”)

Having crazy parents has to be a contributing factor when an adult turns out nutty. Right?

Lindsay Lohan Meets With Father Michael At Rehab

I’m not sure why I’m obsessed with Lindsay Lohan and her father Michael. Admittedly, Lindsay’s ongoing downward spiral is more intriguing than some, in part because it seems to be a true never-ending story. It’s not a train-wreck, because, well, when you wreck a train, that’s it. It stops moving. Lindsay Lohan’s life keeps getting more and more tumultuous.

At the moment, Michael Lohan’s little daughter is in court-ordered rehab. Michael, according to published reports, visited her there. She hadn’t seen him in seven months, they say.

An unnamed eyewitness (spywitness?) described the tender scene thusly:

“Lindsay met him at Betty Ford and the pair spent hours together… it was not a fleeting encounter, this appeared well-planned in advance. It was an emotional reunion… there were hugs, kisses and even a few tears when Michael and Lindsay first saw each other.”

Big Daddy Michael Lohan said in a statement that he has “pledged not to comment about anything relating to my daughter.” He then went on to talk about his daughter, saying, “However, what I will say is that I am an incredibly proud father tonight. My daughter is progressing extraordinarily well.”

At least he said something nice. Right?

Celebrity Parents That Seem Normal

Celebrity parents, celebrity kids paper dolls

And now, for your viewing pleasure, here are two sets of celebrity parents that seem normal.

First up: Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and husband Pete Wentz, hanging by the water with little Bronx Mowgli. I’ve written before that Bronx is a rough name for a kid to have, but at least the Simpson-Wentzes seem to be normal parents. See photos at the Daily Mail.

Next we have Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale. She has an incredible career in music and fashion, and he used to be in a band called Bush that was sort of popular. (Rossdale and Bush are putting out a new album this year called Everything Always Now; you can download the first single here. Maybe it’ll be as big as ‘Hollaback Girl’. Trivia tidbit: according to the web site for No Doubt, the band Gwen Stefani started her career in, they used to open for Bush.) The headline is sort of odd: Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale leave their sons at home to celebrate eighth wedding anniversary. Should they bring the kids along? Stefani is gorgeous, and 40, which isn’t old but that’s older than I thought she was. I guess I think of rock stars as being young, but ‘Tragic Kingdom‘ came out in 1995, which was (gulp) 15 years ago. Again, pics of the happy family are at the Daily Mail web site.

Celebrity parents that seem normal are not, of course, a common occurrence. Or maybe parenting skills have an inverse relationship with a desire to seek the spotlight. Tough to say. Somebody study that, will you please?

Pictures of Jaimee Grubbs

Jaimee Grubbs

Here are some pictures of Jaimee Grubbs. Who is Jaimee Grubbs? She may have had an affair with Tiger Woods. Did Jaimee Grubbs, or Jamie Grubbs as some are calling her, have an affair with Tiger Woods? Can we type Jamie Grubbs and Tiger Woods affair often enough? Perhaps we already have.

Apparently Jaimee Grubbs, or Jamie Grubbs, or Jaime Grubbs, or Jamie Grubb, or whatever, once appeared on a VH1 reality show called Tool Academy. I think it wasn’t about tools. Well, not the kind of tools one buys at Home Depot. Maybe the kind of tools who shop at Home Depot. (Thank you! Tip your waitresses!)

It should be pointed out that we have no knowledge of any affair between Jaime Grubbs and Tiger Woods. We do have a link to pictures of Jaimee Grubbs at VH1.com. And we have pictures here. Look! She’s cute.
