October 23, 2010 02:36:07 GMT


Lindsay Lohan got a stern warning from Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elden Fox but not a jail sentence. During a hearing at the Beverly Hills Courthouse on Friday, October 22, Lindsay was ordered to remain in rehab until January 3, 2011 and will also be a subject to random drug testing until her next court date on February 25, 2011, Los Angeles Times reported.

"I'm serious about that (date). You're staying there past the New Year, and there's a reason for that," judge Elden told Lindsay. "I'm not going to be manipulated. If you're serious about what you wrote in the letter, if you're serious about your sobriety... you will admit that you are an addict," Elden added, referring to Lindsay's handwritten letter she sent to the judge. Lindsay nodded her head.

October 23, 2010 02:33:12 GMT


Mel Gibson is out of "The Hangover 2", but it does not mean the movie will lose its A-lister cameo. Liam Neeson has been chosen to take over Gibson's role of a tattoo artist as he tells Daily Variety, "I just got a call to do a one day shoot on 'Hangover 2' as a tattooist in Thailand, and that's all I know about it."

Neeson's representative, Alan Nierob, has additionally affirmed his client's statement, saying that the actor has been locked up to appear in the upcoming sequel, TMZ reports. Nierob, who is apparently also a rep for Gibson, uses the momentum to quip Gibson firing and jokingly adds, "Pending clearance of cast and crew background check."

'Hellcats', 'Nikita' and 'One Tree Hill' Get Full Season

October 23, 2010 02:29:24 GMT


It's The CW's turn to reveal which of its Fall line-up survive the ax. Freshmen "Hellcats" and "Nikita" are handed the full season order along with veteran show "One Tree Hill". Awaiting decision are the rest of the shows like "Gossip Girl" and "90210" but one in particular enters the danger zone of not being renewed.

In its sophomore year, "Life Unexpected" is struggling with ever-changing rating. The show starring Shiri Appleby and Kerr Smith among others indeed had been given two additional scripts after an uptick a couple of weeks ago, but rating has since continued to slip. Moreover, CW has green lit several projects for potential midseason premiere such as dramedy titled "Danni Lowinski".
