Well, this comes as a surprise ... and yet not. Lindsay Lohan apparently will NOT take the plea deal the judge offered in her felony grand theft case.

The troubled star, who insists she is innocent and did not steal that $2,500 necklace, will proceed to trial and hope to remain free in the meantime.

Lindsay's case is now assigned to Judge Stephanie Sautner - considered "a tough but fair" judge - with a preliminary hearing is set for April 22.

Tight Dress on Lindsay

She faces both jail and prison as the case moves on. Here's why ...

If Judge Sautner thinks Lindsay Lohan violated probation, she could be jailed pending trial. Then, if Lindsay is convicted of grand theft, state prison beckons.

The fact that she could be thrown in jail for a probation violation before her grand theft trial made a plea bargain and three months in jail seem pretty light.

Still, it wasn't without its own set of risks. If she copped a plea, which she was considering seriously, she would have been placed on three years' probation.

LiLo? Staying clean for three years? ROFL. Might as well go b@lls out now.

In short, she's hoping the judge will NOT rule on the probation violation until a verdict is reached in the grand theft case, and that she'll be cleared there.

Smart move? You tell us: Should Lindsay have taken the plea deal?

We knew he loved fame, money, himself, and bloviating about everything under the sun. But who knew Donald Trump was a complete buffoon?

Swaggering onto The View today to promote The Celebrity Apprentice, Trump, who's pondering a White House run, also brought up a political issue.

One that landed him in hot water with Whoopi Goldberg.

Of President Obama, who he thinks he can beat, Trump asks: “Why doesn’t he show his birth certificate? I want him to show his birth certificate!”

“There’s something on that birth certificate that he doesn’t like,” said Trump, defying all intelligence (here's Obama's birth certificate, idiot).

He pointed to Elisabeth Hasselbeck and said, “Look, she’s smiling!” She was, perhaps because she anticipated Whoopi's reply, which was:

“Donald, I think that’s the biggest pile of dog mess I’ve heard in ages! It’s not because he’s black, is it?” Trump denied that it was, but ...

“Because I’ve never heard a white president being asked to show his birth certificate. That’s B.S.” said Goldberg vehemently, and truthfully.

Trump admitted that Obama "probably" is a citizen but insists he should prove it because "no one" remembers him from when he was a kid. Really.

What do you think? Is Obama a natural-born U.S. citizen?

Paz de la Huerta was involved in an altercation with Samantha Swetra Sunday night.

The Boardwalk Empire actress and The City star attended a party at The Standard Hotel, with sources telling TMZ the former started to hit on the latter's date. When Swetra remarked on how drunk de la Huerta appeared to be, she responded by throwing a drink and a fist into Samantha's face.

Insiders say shards of the glass became lodged in Swetra's leg, while Lindsay Lohan - yes, she was actually around for the incident - assisted Samantha and Paz was escorted out by security.

The actress was arrested last night. Swetra filed a police report this morning, but no charges have been filed yet.

Charged with involuntary manslaughter, Dr. Conrad Murray will likely argue that Michael Jackson killed himself with a lethal dose of Propofol.

Even if that were true (and it's a stretch), it still wouldn't get Murray off the hook. The treatment he gave MJ was suspect for myriad reasons.

To that end, Murray's lawyers just filed documents pointing fingers at none other than Dr. Arnold Klein - Jackson's longtime doctor and friend.

Murray claims that Klein addicted Jackson to Demerol and other powerful narcotics. It's part of his plan to establish Michael as a lost cause physically.

Murray's legal team claims Klein fueled MJ's addiction as recently as 2009 by giving him scores of Demerol injections in the months prior to his death.

He may have a point there. In the months before Jackson died, Dr. Arnold Klein gave Jackson 51 Demerol injections. But is it relevant to the case?

The docs claim it is for this reason: "Due to Mr. Klein's actions, Mr. Jackson became physiologically and psychologically dependent on Demerol."

Murray's team says Dr. Arnold Klein, who is also the rumored biological father of MJ's kids Paris and Prince, "is a relevant, highly material witness."

Dr. Conrad Murray ...

Will Ronnie Magro be allowed to film Jersey Shore's fourth season in Italy despite the pending litigation against him? His lawyer is trying to make it happen.

Joseph A. Raia told a judge that the reality star will submit an application for a pretrial intervention program in connection with a pending assault charge.

The charge is in connection with an 18-month-old incident in which Ron cold cocked Stephen Izzo with one punch after an exchange at a Seaside Heights.

Ronnie Shirtless

The incident was broadcast in an episode titled, fittingly, "One Shot." The court application would allow Ronnie to tape the show's fourth season in Italy.

While not admitting guilt, the applicant (Ron-Ron) just has to stay out of trouble for a defined time period (at least a year) to avoid a criminal record.

Magro's next court date is June 6. It's unknown if his bid will be accepted, but hard to see him being denied the right to film abroad for a few weeks.

Follow the jump to see the fight ...

Some supporters claim he was ambushed Tuesday on Good Morning America, but the questions by Robin Roberts that preceded Chris Brown's meltdown were approved by the singer before the interview, according to reports.

Brown FLIPPED afterward, allegedly smashing a dressing room window.

Roberts insists GMA asked in advance of she could pose "a few questions" about Rihanna, and Chris approved. She adds, "I'm pulling for the guy." 

Contemplative Chris

As for the broken window, sources say no one in the studio saw Chris throw a chair into the window, but he was definitely in the dressing room at the time.

Staffers called the cops after Chris Brown's tirade, which ended with him storming out in a shirtless huff, to document the broken window in the aftermath.

Whatever took place, shards of glass went flying onto the street, which potentially constitutes two crimes - vandalism and assault (on the passersby below).

No word yet on how seriously police plan on taking this, but Chris, who's still on probation in the Rihanna battery case, could be on thin ice as a result.

The NYPD has yet to take action, and may not unless ABC wants to press charges and actively gets them involved. Either way, not great for Chris' image.

What do you think? Are you on Chris Brown's side?

NFL legend Lawrence Taylor was sentenced to six years probation today in his sexual misconduct case, avoiding jail time as part of a plea bargain.

Taylor, who appeared with his wife Lynette, admitted to having sex with an underage girl (she was 16) who had been prostituted to him last year.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

LT now must register as a sex offender. A New York court will hold a hearing April 12 to determine what sex offender registry level to assign him.

A stoic Lawrence Taylor faces the music today.

The victim, whose name has not been released, appeared in court and hoped to make a statement along with her famed attorney, Gloria Allred.

The judge did not allow a victim statement, however, because he said they are not permitted for misdemeanor convictions, which this one was.

Taylor was arrested last May and maintained that the girl, who was a runaway, told him she was 19. He admitted to paying her $300 for sex.

Looks like THG was correct in its theory that Michael Lohan's arrest for domestic violence last night stemmed from an incident with his ex, Kate Major.

It appears this violent confrontation got ugly really fast.

According to TMZ, citing what she told the cops, MiLo went to his apartment, which shared with Kate, last night. She hasn't lived there for a while.

Mike Lohan and Kate Major

Kate, who also dated Jon Gosselin, was briefly engaged to MiLo last year.

Kate dropped by to pick up some of her stuff, but Michael Lohan became upset that Kate was packing up for good, and quickly "went ballistic."

The two started arguing, and Kate turned her back on him, only to be grabbed and thrown across the room, striking the bedpost with her shoulder.

Kate Major claims Michael took a towel and began choking her, too.

Victoria Jackson is at it again - and no one who stands in the way of Jesus Christ is safe!

A couple days after slamming Glee for airing a kiss between two male students, the former Saturday Night Live star appeared on Showbiz Tonight yesterday and didn't shy away from her opinion.

Isn't it possible, after all, that such a storyline helps kids struggling in similar situations?

"It's not helping," says Jackson. "They should have a celibacy campaign and tell kids that 50 percent of teenagers now have this new STD from oral sex. That's what they should try to be doing instead of trying to make kids gay."

The so-called comedian says she is not homophobic... just confused.

"I just want to know why the liberals are pro-Muslim and pro-gay. Muslims kill gays. That's what's confusing to me. And the only thing I can come up with is the Muslims hate God and the gays hate His word."

If Chris Brown ever wants to be remembered for something besides beating Rihanna, flying into a rage because people ask him about it won't help.

We've tried to temper our criticism of the guy, given that it's been two years since the assault took place. But his own actions make it impossible here.

Upset by on-air questions about Rihanna on Good Morning America, Brown lost it behind the scenes, smashing a window and storming off shirtless.

Chris Brown on Good Morning America

Just a few hours ago, Chris performed and was interviewed by Robin Roberts live from the Times Square studio when she asked about the Rihanna incident.

Brown tried to redirect questions to focus on his new album, F.A.M.E., but Roberts continued to ask about Chris' legal issues stemming from the attack.

After the interview, Brown absolutely freaked, storming into his dressing room and screaming so loud, the people in hair and makeup called security.

Brown was so out of control, he smashed a window with a chair in his dressing room, shattering the glass. Some shards fell onto 43rd and Broadway.

By the time security rushed in, Brown ripped off his shirt and peaced out, blowing off a second performance he was supposed to do for ABC's website.
