Uh-oh. Maybe we should have been more suspicious of that Star magazine report about Lindsay Lohan being on the straight and narrow. She was reportedly keeping a low profile during her NYC trip last week, but a source told Us magazine that Saturday night, the recently rehabbed starlet actually partied until the wee hours at a club called the Boom Boom Room.
“It looked like she didn’t want to be noticed,” an observer at the club said.
“It’s the same old cycle of lying and denials,” an insider said. “She’s telling everyone she didn’t go out. We’re like, ‘Lindsay, people saw you there!’”
Though LiLo has spoken about learning her lesson from jail and treatment, “everything that she went through seems not to have changed her a bit,” the insider said. “It’s sad.”
Sigh. We were so eager to believe Lindsay had really turned a corner, and now we don’t know what to think. Should we assume the talk of her reconnecting with Sam Ronson is bogus too?
Who’s the woman helping heal Liam Neeson’s heart, a year and a half after Natasha Richardson’s death? The actor, who lost his beloved wife in a freak skiing accident in April 2009, is now dating British PR exec Freya St. John, who’s a mom of two.
And even her ex has nice things to say about her. “She’s a wonderful person and a fantastic mother,” her former husband told People magazine. “She takes life seriously in a free-spirited kind of way.”
Though the romance is said to be in its very early stages, with the “A-Team” star making his two sons a top priority, “they make a very nice couple,” her ex said.
We’re glad to hear Liam is taking baby steps toward a relationship — and we hope he finds happiness again.
Gunn Fires Off
Tim Gunn pulls no punches when it comes to offering his opinions on “Project Runway” — and in real life, he’s even more blunt. Case in point: Eschewing the usual so-and-so-is-simply-a-delight pleasantries most Hollywood types lavish on their co-stars, the fashion guru bluntly calls Taylor Momsen a “brat” and “pathetic.”
After filming an episode of the couture-centric show “Gossip Girl,” Tim told E! News, “What a diva! She was pathetic, she couldn’t remember her lines, and she didn’t even have that many. I thought to myself, ‘Why are we all being held hostage by this brat?’”
Constantly on her BlackBerry, “she annoyed the entire crew,” Tim said.
Were he a regular cast member, the style guru said, he would take her aside and say, “‘You know, young lady, there are hundreds of thousands of girls who are just as attractive and even smarter than you. Why are you acting like this show is a huge burden on you?’ She was on her phone during every break. I wanted to tell her, ‘If you weren’t on your BlackBerry, you can retain this stuff.’”
Props to Tim for calling it like he sees it! (You can tell he’s not an actor.)
