Michael Lohan is a pretty terrible parent. Who the heck leaks a taped phone call of his daughter bawling hysterically for help just to "prove a point" ... in the press.

Someone about to get served with a cease and desist letter for secretly taping several of these phone conversations he had with her a year or so ago, that's who.

Lindsay Lohan's former assistant, Jenni Muro, plans to send Michael Lohan just that, and should he release more dirt, as he threatens, legal action could be next.

Muro, who quit as Lindsay's manager in February, told TMZ that Lindsay's mercenary dad "has violated the privacy of the daughter he uses as a cash register."

Team Lindsay, Team Michael or Team Father-Daughter Rehab?

In the tapes, Muro, who claims her own privacy was violated as well, talks about trying to save Lindsay's life, which as we all know by now is getting out of control.

In addition to being a d!ck move in general, she says Michael's release of the tape was disingenuous, as the version was heavily edited and taken out of context.

She says Michael's conduct was "way beyond low." Mmmyeah. That's an even bigger understatement than saying Britney Spears' live shows are lip-synched.

Carrie Prejean is a hypocritical idiot. That's as nicely as we can put it.

Remember how the deposed Miss California claimed those pesky nude photos from her modeling days weren't meant to topless, and "the wind" was responsible?

Well, in her new tell-all book, she also blames "society" for her actions.

An entire passage of the waste of oxygen's memoir is dedicated to sexuality, and how our society's values do not value it appropriately. Here are her sage words:

"Unfortunately, pornography has become mainstream. It rushes at us daily through big screens, portable screens; soft core porn is on mainstreamed TV cable stations, while hard core porn is just a mouse click away on the Internet."


"The envelope of what seems acceptable in our society seems to get pushed farther and farther as more and more people are exposed to this kind of material."

"The result is girls growing up in a culture where it is hard to have an innocent, healthy, normal view of themselves, how they should behave, how they should act, and how they should dress. Our bodies are temples of the Lord."

"We should earn respect and admiration for our hearts, not for showing skin to look sexy ... I have learned that your outer beauty can only get you so far in life."

That's all well and good, except for two points:

  1. She is famous for being in BEAUTY PAGEANTS.
  2. Go ahead and blame the good ol' U.S.A. for its lack of moral values, but society didn't produce the Carrie Prejean sex tape. That was a (graphic) solo job.

Having dominated headlines last week with her two-part Good Morning America and 20-20 interview detailing Chris Brown's brutal assault on her in detail and for the first time in her own words, Rihanna is ready to get back to the music.

To that end, she made a surprise cameo Sunday night at her mentor Jay-Z's concert at UCLA. We believe this is her first live performance since the Chris Brown assault, and while it's only one song, it doesn't look like she missed a beat.

Check out her performance with Jay-Z of "Run This Town" below ...

For more Rihanna live, follow the jump for a look at her performance of a new song, "Hard," at the very same venue. Not sure how we feel about this one ...

NFL legend Lawrence Taylor has a history of substance abuse, but there was no evidence of drugs or hookers playing a role in his Florida arrest last night.

Taylor, who recently competed on Dancing with the Stars and won two Super Bowls with the New York Giants, was merely nailed for leaving scene of an accident.

The original LT (talk to us when you play on Super Bowl Sunday, LaDainian Tomlinson) was brought to a local police station and was later released on $500 bond.

Cops say despite his bloodshot eyes in the mug shots below, Taylor, who has been clean for years, was totally coherent and officers didn't perform a sobriety test.

That doesn't explain why he allegedly hit another car, crashed into a guard rail, then drove several miles from the scene while his car was missing a tire, but hey.

LT Mug Shot

Lawrence Taylor demolished his car like he used to smash opposing quarterbacks to pieces... except that his devastating hits were actually legal on the football field.

Police found LT standing outside his car, which was missing a front tire ... which was found at the scene of the crash. That's as sloppy as O.J. Simpson leaving one glove covered in his dead ex-wife's blood at his house and the other at hers.

"He said he had been involved in a crash," Lt. James Durden of the Florida Highway Patrol said, adding he "thought he hit only a guard rail and not another car."

Fortunately, no one was hurt and no one else but Taylor involved in the crash. Taylor was also very cooperative when he was arrested. Small victories, right?

Kristin Cavallari is a very cute girl. One who can be painful to watch try to read cue cards and act out fake drama on The Hills, but nevertheless, a cute girl.

She's not afraid to show off, either. Wearing a short-sleeved, see-through lace shirt over her bra to a club this weekend, she left little to the imagination.

The $5 question is whether or not that's a good thing or not.

One of our favorite things about Lauren Conrad was that she never seemed desperate for attention. Her Hills replacement? Well, the outfit speaks for itself.

You tell us in the poll below: Is it sexy or just plain skanky?

Kristin Cavallari's outfit is totally ...

As we reported last week, Britney Spears brought the Circus tour down under, but has not received the welcome she expected ... or would have expected, if she had any clue where she was at the moment or what people were saying about her.

Fans have been complaining about the quality of her performance, even walking out of her concert in Perth, according to reports in the Australian media.

The cause? Disgruntled concertgoers apparently aren't thrilled what you would think would be the obvious realization that Britney Spears lip-syncs live.

That, and she gives "a lackluster performance overall," according to one paper, who went on to say that the sexy American songstress was just "boring."

Spears' promoter refuted claims of fans fleeing the Circus, telling The Australian newspaper "Britney is aware of all this and she's extremely upset by it."

We're just impressed she even knows she's in Australia.

Where the Heck Am I Right Now?

Britney Spears' Circus tour has met its share of Australian critics.

Also issuing a carefully-worded response were reps for the venue where the Perth show was held: "From [our] perspective, the event was a huge success."

Not sure how well that response will go over with one woman who told The Australian, "What a waste of $200. I could have got four pairs of shoes for that."

To which The Hollywood Gossip would reply: 1. That sucks, but 2. This is a surprise? Go see Britney Spears live if you want, but how do you expect better?

Spears' manager, Adam Leber, came to her defense, claiming that it was the work of just one Australian journalist that sparked this whole lip-synch debate.

"It's unfortunate that one journalist didn't enjoy the show," he said. "Fortunately the other 18,272 fans in attendance did." Well, 18,271. Shoe lady didn't.

Perhaps the best comment on the story came from none other than a certain douchebag also in Australia promoting his album, who posted on his Twitter:

"If you're shocked that Britney was lip-syncing at her concert and want your money back, life may continue to be hard for you." LOL. So true, John Mayer.

Blake Lively starred in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants films. She seems to have lost hers at some point during the sequel, according to the pics below!

The Gossip Girl star recently opened up to Marie Claire magazine about how fashion, acting, growing up in L.A. and ... did we mention there are hot photos?

Below are some excerpts and pictures from interview with Marie Claire ...

On Gossip Girl fashion: "Living in New York, I feel stronger and more like a woman than ever before. In high school, it was like, what power do I have - I have long blonde hair, you know? But working as hard as I do, I feel a sense of power and respect, too.

I’ve learned an incredible amount about fashion on Gossip Girl. For me, clothes are a personal expression, and my style is as ever-changing as I am: I’m at a point when I am growing, maturing, developing, going through new things."

On her Southern values: "I grew up in L.A., but I was the only one in my family born there. I have a tight-knit Southern family, so whenever I tell people I’m from L.A., they say, 'Yeah but you don’t count.' I guess it's because of the Southern values I was raised with, and the way I eat - the more sugary and cheesy and fried, the better.

On acting: "As a character, I get to be this wild, outgoing person that I’m so not. It comes from being the youngest of five. I was always observing my siblings and hearing stories about their lives that turned out to to be helpful as an actress."

On her early school daze: "When I was 3, my mom enrolled me in first grade. My older brother was supposed to start school, but he didn’t want to go alone, so my mom told them I was 6 since I was so tall. But after a few weeks, they said they had to put me in mentally disabled classes because I wasn’t up to pace with the rest of the kids They thought that I was slow because all I wanted to do was sleep while the other kids were doing their projects. [laughs].”

Just call her Marla Sokoloff the market! Eh, eh?

Sorry. The Practice star married Alec Puro, a drummer with the band Deadsy, at an evening ceremony in Beverly Hills on Sunday. Congratulations!

In front of a 100 guests, the 28-year-old bride and groom walked down the aisle in a strapless white gown with a black sash around her waist.

"Marla looked beyond stunning. She took a few deep breaths and briefly teared up before she entered. She seemed a bit nervous, but happy," reports an onlooker.

Marla Sokoloff is a married woman!

The reception featured guests mingling while enjoying champagne, fruit and puff pastries. Tables were adorned with candles and roses, and classical music played.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds spent a few moments alone in a cozy backroom with a fireplace. The reception included an Italian sit-down dinner and dancing.

The couple, who met at a party, were engaged in October, 2008.
