  • Lindsay Lohan Completes Community Service in the Nick of Time

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 19 hrs ago

    One day before Lindsay Lohan's community service deadline, the 28-year-old has apparently finished her work. This was the final term of her sentence stemming from her reckless driving case in 2012.

    At a court hearing in Los Angeles on May 7, the Mean Girls actress still had 115 hours of community service to complete. Superior Court Judge Mark Young told Lindsay there would be consequences, possibly jail, if she missed the deadline, which was tomorrow. He ordered her to redo the full 125 hours she claimed she was working on while in London (remember when she tried to count performing in Speed-the-Plow ?).

    Per the Associated Press, Santa Monica Chief Deputy City Attorney Terry White said he does not have any concerns about the work Lohan did New York. "It looks like she's completed her hours," he said.

    Assuming the judge accepts this community service, this will be the first time Lindsay has been off probation since 2007. Hard to believe!

  • Bruce Jenner Responds to Wrongful Death Lawsuit

    Bruce Jenner has responded to the wrongful death lawsuit stemming the fatal crash he was in earlier this year.

    In February, the Olympic champion was involved in a four-car pileup in Malibu that left one driver, 69-year-old Kimberly Howe, dead. Howe's two adult stepchildren, 57-year-old William Howe and 60-year-old Dana Redmond, sued Jenner, alleging the impact of Bruce's SUV "propelled" Kimberly into another lane, where her car was struck by oncoming traffic and she was killed.

    According to papers obtained by E! News, Jenner calls the accident a "terrible tragedy," but believes the plaintiffs are "financially independent and successful… living and working and residing out-of-state for decades, who do not and cannot allege that they are financially dependent upon their stepmother for the necessities of life."

    The 30-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is definitely living the single life right now. Although Khloé and on-again, off-again boyfriend French Montana were still hanging out earlier this month, a source tells Yahoo that the two aren't currently together.

    "They are just friends," says one insider. "For now, at least."

    In fact, Khloé was spotted out with Rick Fox last week. The E! reality star dined with the former NBA player, 45, Thursday night at Casa Vega, a Kardashian favorite.

    "It looked to be a fun date," one restaurant-goer told Us Weekly. "She seemed happy."

    Maybe we could get another season of Khloé & Lamar after all.

  • Jim Bob Duggar Once Said Incest Should Be a Capital Crime

    Nearly a week after 19 Kids and Counting star Josh Duggar admitted to molesting five girls 12 years ago — some of whom were his sisters — old comments are coming back to haunt the famous family.

    Gawker found an old quote from patriarch Jim Bob Duggar in which he stated, "R ape and incest represent heinous crimes and as such, should be treated as capital crimes. " He said this during his 2002 campaign for U.S. Senate, the same year he became aware of Josh's behavior.

    Jim Bob and Michelle, who did not immediately go to the police when they found out about Josh's incidents years ago, released a statement in support of their 27-year-old son just last week.

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 5 days ago

    The network issued the following statement on Friday: "Effective immediately, TLC has pulled all episodes of 19 Kids and Counting currently from the air.  We are deeply saddened and troubled by this heartbreaking situation, and our thoughts and prayers are with the family and victims at this difficult time."

    TLC wouldn't comment on Thursday after a police report surfaced of Duggar's past indiscretions, but instead ran a marathon of the show, which prominently featured Josh. Naturally, that sparked outrage from viewers and non-viewers alike.

    According to TMZ, the fate of the show is "uncertain" and sources involved say no long-term decision has been made. However, cameras have been rolling this week. One day before Josh's past was uncovered, he tweeted out a picture while filming.

    The awareness campaign, which started in Britain in 1988 to raise money for poverty-stricken children in the U.K. and Africa, arrived in the U.S. today with the same important purpose. Dozens of stars joined forces with NBC and participated in a three-hour telecast Thursday night in an effort to raise funds for children living in poverty here at home and abroad.

    The show featured segments that told moving stories of children in need, as well as funny skits starring some of Hollywood's biggest celebs letting loose for a good cause.

    In the words of host Seth Meyers, "We make you laugh, then we make you cry, then we make you open your wallet."

    Here are three of our favorite bits:

    The funds raised during the Red Nose Day campaign will be given to a variety of nonprofit organizations, including the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the Children's Health Fund, Feeding America, the National Council of La Raza, and the United Way. To learn more or donate, click here.

  • Flavor Flav Arrested, Charged With Never-Ending List of Offenses

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 6 days ago

    Flavor Flav was arrested in Las Vegas early Thursday morning for… well, a lot of things.

    Nevada Highway Patrol public information officer Chelsea Stuenkel told The Insider With Yahoo that they pulled the 56-year-old entertainer over in his 2005 black BMW over for going 73 mph in a 45 mph zone. He was arrested on six charges.

    The misdemeanors are suspicion of driving under the influence, speeding, possessing less than an ounce of marijuana, having an open container of alcohol, false registration, and driving with a suspended license. The total bail for Flav — whose real name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr. — was $7,000.

    This isn't the first time the rapper and television personality has had a run-in with cops on the road.

    Last year, the Public Enemy hype man was pulled over for speeding on his way to his mother's funeral in New York. When police ran his license, they found out it had been suspended 16 times.

    An attorney for Flavor Flav said she would get back with a comment when the AP informed her of her client's arrest.

  • Josh Duggar Responds to Child Molestation Allegations

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 6 days ago

    A stunning and very alarming report has emerged involving the Duggar family.

    According to a recently uncovered police report, Josh Duggar, one of the many stars of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting , allegedly molested five girls — some of whom, were reportedly his sisters — starting in 2002. He was around 14 at the time.

    Josh, 27, issued a statement to People in response to the allegations: "Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life."

    Josh has resigned as Executive Director of the Family Research Council.

    So what triggered this investigation in 2006 if the Duggars never came forward? Oprah, actually.
