#LindsayLohan Live TV? Troubled Star Turns Down ‘DWTS’ Offer Because She Can’t Show Up On Time

Lindsay Lohan Live Tv

Human train wreck Lindsay Lohan reportedly turned down a $550,000 offer from ABC’s "Dancing With the Stars." The reason? According to RadarOnline, the troubled starlet simply can’t commit to a schedule and can hardly be trusted to show up, so her team decided it’s best for her to skip live TV.

"Lindsay has been a mess on movie sets lately," a source told RadarOlnine. "She doesn’t show up on time, she keeps everyone waiting and so her team decided that there was no way that she could handle the pressure of a live show like ‘Dancing with the Stars.’”

Oh, LiLo…

The source went on to say, "Lindsay operates on her own schedule, and there would be no way that anyone could guarantee that she would be on time for rehearsals or the shows, and they’re live so it would be horrible if she didn’t show up!" Terrible, yes. Entertaining? Probably the reason ABC wanted the 26-year-old to begin with.

Had Lohan been able to manage some sort of schedule — two live shows a week and months of daily practices, in this case — the fat paycheck would’ve been ample help in covering her $234,000 debt to the IRS.

But that’s not the only reason LiLo should’ve sucked it up and said yes. Celebuzz listed the reasons why Lohan should have agreed to "DWTS" and they all make perfect sense. For one, the rigorous regimen would have sprung her into shape and gotten her on a healthier track. Also, Lindsay is practically uninsurable in the industry, but proving she’s changed on "DWTS" could help her turn it around.

Either way, we’ll soon get a decent dose of La LiLo when two of her movies come out: "The Canyons" (slated for later this year) and "Scary Movie 5" (to be unleashed onto the world in April).

‘Revenge’: #EmilyVanCamp #JoshuaBowman And More Play ‘F***, Marry, Kill’

slide_225387_1515861_free.jpg?1347544394000

With all its scandals, violence and backstabbing, "Revenge" certainly isn’t the tamest of shows.

And in "Elle" magazine’s behind-the-scenes video (above), Emily VanCamp and the rest of the cast keeps up the drama on set, playing a standard game of "F***, Marry, Kill."

For anyone who doesn’t know the rules, the premise is this: When given three options, who would you sleep with, who would you marry, and who would you kill?

"My screw is Amanda Clarke because she used to work in a strip club. Girl knows what she’s doing," Ashley Madekwe, who plays Ashley on the series, said.

"I’d marry Ashley," Christa B. Allen (Charlotte) said. Madekwe noted, "We’d be very happy together."

As for heroine Emily Thorne’s (Emily VanCamp) "screw"? "She’d probably have to screw Aiden, because she does that a lot anyway," Van Camp said.

"She’d probably kill Victoria, have sex with Ashley," said Jennifer Jason Leigh, who plays Emily’s mother Kara. "It could happen. On ‘Revenge,’ anything could happen."

"Revenge" airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. EST on ABC.

‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno’: Jessica Simpson Talks Pregnancy And Weight Gain

Jessica Simpson dropped by "The Tonight Show," where she admitted that this new pregnancy may have been part of God’s plan, but it wasn’t part of hers.

"I was extremely shocked," she said. "It was kind of like a one-night stand." Granted, it was a "one-night stand" with her fiance of two years, who was also backstage during the interview.

Speaking about the couple getting married, Simpson said that they’ve had two wedding dates already, but Eric keeps getting her pregnant and messing up those plans.

As for her weight, which has been a tabloid target for years now, Simpson said she’s determined to gain less weight this time around than she did with her first child. She admitted that she gained more than what doctors recommended then.

All of the attention around Simpson has helped her land a pilot deal with NBC. The new reality series will be inspired by Simpson’s own life, which has turned out to be both fascinating and entertaining over the years.

Tune in to "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" every weeknight at 11:35 p.m. EST on NBC.

And then there’s this: Responsible person Charlie Sheen is adding another nickname to his list, but this one won’t get bleeped out. It’s Grandpa. Yes, the troubled star’s oldest daughter, Cassandra, is with child.

Cassandra, 28, is Sheen’s child with high school girlfriend Paula Profit, according to MercuryNews.com. The former (and future?) "Two and a Half Men" actor, 47, iscurrently dating a 24-year-old porn star, which could be fun for the kid in a bouncy-house sort of way.

In the meantime you can catch Hollywood’s bad boy on his series "Anger Management," which was picked up for another 90 episodes, and in the upcoming "Scary Movie 5" and "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III."

#BritneySpears Fired From #XFactor ? Singer Reportedly Getting Boot

slide_228807_1022958_free.jpg

Britney Spears will be fired from "The X Factor" after only one season on the show, according to "Us Weekly." The report suggests producers aren’t happy with Spears’ performance during Season 2 of the Fox singing competition.

Spears joined Season 2 of "The X Factor," drawing a hefty paycheck of about $15 million. She and Demi Lovato replaced Season 1 judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.

"They paid all that for her to say ‘amazing’ and offer half-claps," a source told "Us Weekly."

Spears became known for her one-sentence critiques and faces she made on the series, so much so that the series complied a montage for the Season 2 finale.

In November, Spears told members of the press she’d be back for Season 3. "Yes, I definitely will," she said at the time.

"The X Factor" judge L.A. Reid will not return for Season 3, and Simon Cowell has not made any official announcements about next season’s judging panel.

Fox had no comment on the matter. A spokesperson for "The X Factor" told HuffPost TV the reports are merely speculation. "No one has discussed next years judging panel yet – any reports otherwise are complete speculation," the spokesperson said in an email statement.

#KatherineHeigl Receives An ‘Unsettling’ Pooper-Scooper Gift From #JayLeno On ‘The Tonight Show’

Katherine Heigl Considers The ‘Unsettling’ Gift Jay Leno Gave Her On ‘The Tonight Show’

Katherine Heigl has an affinity for and love of animals so strong that she helped found the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, which has a mission of helping stop the euthanization of animals. She went on "The Tonight Show" to talk about it, and brought collars for Jay Leno’s pets that she’d designed. Leno had a gift that he’d designed for Heigl as well.

His was a pooper-scooper, with a most disturbing design. Leno’s face was on the bottom of the scooper, so that his jaws opened with the "jaws" of the scooper.

"That is so, so twisted! It is so fantastic. Jay, I’m gonna send you a photo of me using this," Heigl said.

But while she may have found it "twisted" and "fantastic," The Hollywood Reporter thought it more "unsettling." How long before they’re available in the NBC gift store?
