Gossip round up: Our verdict on the week’s top fashion and entertainment stories
Lohan family drama First came news of a domestic squabble between Lindsay Lohan and her mother, Dina. Now,
TMZ has audio of Lindsay’s hysterical distress call to her father. “Dad, she’s on cocaine!” Lindsay says about her mom. (Not surprising, especially to anyone who has seen Dina’s now-infamous appearance on Dr. Phil.) Apparently, Lindsay loaned her mother $40,000 so that the family home wouldn’t be foreclosed on, and when she asked for it back they got into a physical altercation. And Michael Lohan, class act, must have recorded the call and sold it to TMZ.
Verdict: With parents like these, Lindsay never stood a chance. Single Tear.
Carine Roitfeld has been confirmed as the new global fashion director for
Harper’s Bazaar. The editrix, who launched her biannual magazine
CR Fashion Book last month, will collaborate with Harper’s editors from its 26 international editions. Verdict: Yay, Carine! Slow clap.
Hot (Old) Hollywood
A tell-all book about the life of Elizabeth Taylor is making some pretty shocking claims: namely, that she engaged in a threesome with JFK (!!!!) and had a steamy affair with Ronald Reagan. (Considering that Taylor was married seven times, I’m wondering where she found the time for all these trysts?) Authors Danforth Prince and Darwin Potter also detail her affairs with Tony Curtis, Frank Sinatra and Paul Newman. Verdict: Sounds steamy, but will is be as good as
Furious Love? (Best. Beach read. Ever.)
