LiLo opts for a trial
The Lindsay Lohan legal drama continues: The actress (and we use that word lightly these days) has officially elected not to take a plea deal in her felony grand theft case. No, she'd rather waste California taxpayer dollars on a trial instead of on six months in jail. Ooh, maybe she'll get to do both! LiLo had to decide to accept the prosecution offer of six months or else have her case assigned to Judge Stephanie Sautner, who has a reputation for being tough, TMZ reports. Now Sautner will have to decide if Lohan violated probation for her DUI conviction if she's found guilty of stealing that $2,500 necklace from a Venice, Calif., jewelry store. Lindsay is charging she was set up so the jewelry store could cash in on her name.
Brown avoids charge after temper tantrum
It looks like Chris Brown didn't break his probation when he broke that window while throwing a temper tantrum in his dressing room after his Tuesday interview on Good Morning America. But that's only because ABC has decided not to press charges. Time to shout yeah three times, Breezy. TMZ reports the New York police won't be investigating the incident, which apparently left glass showering onto people on the street below the GMA studio, because there's no complaining victim.
Liberace biopic calls for celebrity smooch
We already know that Matt Damon will be playing Michael Douglas' gay lover in the upcoming biopic Liberace, but now they've both confirmed there will be a good bit of guy-on-guy snogging for the big screen. "It's scripted that there's more than one," Damon told E! Online. "I never thought I would get to kiss Michael Douglas." Damon also mentions that director Steven Soderbergh has declared Liberace will be his last movie. "I've had a lot of conversations with him about it and he is serious about it," Damon said.
