Ah, the difficult life of an actress and her fashion styling friends. According to reports, Lindsay Lohan flew Nate Newell to L.A. for a week of partying last weekend - and it grew so out of control that Newell had to beg other friends for airfare home.

"Lindsay flew Nate out and said it would only be for a couple days," a source told the New York Post. "She flew him out, put him up, paid for everything, and they had the best time ... at first.

This is a tough one. Does the public believe universally despised Lindsay Lohan or complete unknown Harry Judd?

While the drummer for McFly claims he had a fling with the underweight acress, Lohan's rep is blasting the story as a publicity stunt. Judd had a cameo in the box office bomb, Just My Luck, and said Lindsay flirted with a few members of the band. They all went to a night club where she singled out 20-year-old Judd.

Rush Limbaugh, Clarence Thomas and other well-known conservatives owe Jack Bauer a debt of gratitude; not just for constantly saving the world, but for providing these bores with entertainment on a weekly basis.

At the Ronald Reagan International Trade Center, these gentlemen gave thanks for the hit FOX show, 24. The Heritage Foundation hosted a forum with a panel that featured homeland security experts, the co-creators of the show and three of the show's stars to purportedly. The topic at hand?

The barrage of Brangelina pictures and an endearing photo shoot involving little Kingston James McGregor Rossdale have left the eager American public pining for pics of the mysterious, still-unseen Suri Cruise.

The reason pictures of Suri have yet to be released could be because new parents Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are concerned about privacy -- but it could also simply be because no magazine coughed up enough cash.
