When you hear the name "Lohan," what is the first word that pops into your head? Drama? Drugs? Attention-starved-examples-of-everything-that-is-wrong-with-celebrity?

For the patriarch of this troubled, irritating family, the answer is simply: integrity.

No, seriously, just read Michael Lohan's response to the rumor that Lindsay will be dropping her surname. He told The New York Daily News:

"I'm proud of the Lohan name. It's a name of integrity. We all had very successful jobs on Wall Street. My father was an unbelievable provider. My sisters are pillars of the community. There's not a blemish in my family outside of me.""

Worst. Dad. Ever.

Michael doesn't believe his daughter will actually take this step, as he's using the chatter to take on his ex-wife once again and to make the possibility all about him.

"From the time [Dina] came out to California, she's tried to put a wedge between Lindsay and me," Lohan tells the newspaper. "Every time she comes around, she tries to put a wedge, and it's only harmful to Lindsay and the children. This family needs therapy."

Hey, it's the first intelligent thing Michael Lohan has ever said! Perhaps if he doesn't go to jail for allegedly choking Kate Major, Michael can look into this.

Natalie Portman won an Oscar for role in Black Swan, but now the star's body double is claiming the actress was featured in the film far less than has been advertised.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Sarah Lane -  an American Ballet Theatre soloist who perfected many of the movie's complicated dance sequences - said: “Of the full body shots, I would say 5 percent are Natalie. All the other shots are me.”

Lane spoke out in response to comments a couple days earlier by Portman's fiance, choreographer Benjamin Millepied. He told the L.A. Times that "85 percent of that movie is Natalie.”

However, Lane says that only applies to shots which are "just her face with arms... that doesn’t show the actual dancing.”

Saying she's the victim of a "cover up," Lane adds that Black Swan producer Ari Handel told her to remain quiet about these facts, yet she's going on record now because "it is demeaning to the profession... I’ve been doing this for 22 years... Can you become a concert pianist in a year and a half, even if you’re a movie star?”

What else can audience members look forward to from this deranged individual?

  • The use of video.
  • Content related to Sheen's "manifesto," Scoleri says.
  • An appearance by goddesses Natalie Kenly and Rachel Oberlin, the latter of whom will be involved directly in some way, her rep confirms.

Concludes Scoleri: "He's one of the most creative people I've ever met in my life. If you want Charlie Sheen, you'll get vintage Sheen with this show. The guy's a media juggernaut. He's there to entertain."

Serena Williams has been deemed too sexy for television.

A few days after a link to the tennis star's new 2K Sports video game commercial was Tweeted, the company received enough backlash over the spot - which features a scantily-clad Serena taking on a scantily-clad model - to announce it would not air on TV.

"As part of the process for creating marketing campaigns to support our titles, we pursue a variety of creative avenues," 2K Sports wrote in a statement. "This video is not part of the title's final marketing campaign and its distribution was unauthorized."

But it was clearly meant to hit the airways, as Serena Tweeted last week to be on the lookout for "awesomely sexy video."

And, come on, 2K Sports, billboards of Rafael Nadal shirtless are all over Europe.

What do you think? Should the ad have been pulled?

Geraldine , the first woman to ever run for Vice President of the United States, passed away today. She was 75.

A family spokesperson confirms that Ferraro succombed to blood cancer at Massachusetts General Hospital around 10 a.m. In 1984, the three-term congresswoman from Queens joined Walter Mondale's Presidential ticket in an election against Ronald Reagon and George H.W. Bush.

The latter duo won 49 out of 50 states to retain the White House.

Soon after her passing, Mondale paid tribute to his former running mate, remember her "a remarkable woman and a dear human being" and adding:

"She was a pioneer in our country for justice for women and a more open society. She broke a lot of molds and it's a better country for what she did."

Sarah Palin, who followed in Ferraro's Vice Presidential footsteps in 2008, also released a statement on her Facebook page: "She broke one huge barrier and then went on to break many more. May her example of hard work and dedication to America continue to inspire all women."
