It's Been A Bad Week For Hollywood "It" Girls
TMZ has learned that Lindsay Lohan became a grand theft victim at Heathrow Airport in London on Thursday. Scotland Yard tells TMZ a "theft of a bag at Heathrow Airport was reported to police by a 20-year-old woman." Sources say the contents of the missing bag total upwards of $1 million ... They continue to say "it is alleged that as the woman exited the Terminal One building, she noticed that an orange Hermes handbag was missing from her suitcase trolley." The bag, according to police, contained "a quantity of jewelry." Lindsay's rep, Leslie Sloane, confirms to TMZ the theft occurred and that Lindsay is extremely upset about the loss of personal belongings. "She is begging for the return of the items," Sloane says. "She doesn't care how she gets them back, she just wants her stuff back." The Hermes Birkin bag that was stolen also contained Lindsay's much needed asthma medication. Uh ... I wouldn't actually be surprised if her asthma stuff wasn't the only medication that was stashed in the stolen bag. So, while it takes denied entry into a club to make Paris Hilton cry, we now know that it takes the theft of about a million dollars' worth of jewelry and asthma medication to make Lindsay Lohan cry. Shoot ... don't get me wrong ... my ass would be wailing in the streets too if I had a million bucks worth of stuff stolen. [Source]
And yes ... it turns out that the photo of Lindsay Lohan baring her underwearless crotch that was supposedly a Photoshop fake is actually NOT a fake -- the photo of Lindsay with the pink undies is the fake. Click HERE for a full explanation and head over to Lime-Light.org to get another look at the original and real NSFW offending photograph(s).
THIS picture is the real picture.
THIS picture is the fake picture.
Poor L. Lo ... things really have gone from bad to worse.
Speaking of worse, here is the booking paperwork from Paris Hilton's DUI arrest:
The actual booking photo has still not been released but I'm confident that it will come soon. It took a couple of days for the Mel Gibson mug shot to get released ... so Paris' mug should be along any time now. [Source]
So far, this string of bad luck (or is it karmic restitution) has been limited to just Lindsay and Paris ... but who knows what travesties may await other Hollywood "It" Girls? What's next? Will Ashlee's new nose fall off? Will Mischa Barton be mistaken for Ashlee Simpson by a fan? Will Nicole Richie eat a bagel and keep it down? Or is all this karmic justice coming back to haunt just Paris and Lindsay? I can't wait to find out.
UPDATE: Things may start looking up for Lindsay, apparently London police have recovered the bag: Hollywood star Lindsay Lohan's stolen handbag has been recovered by police. The bag, said to have contained a million dollars (£530,000) worth of jewellery, was stolen as she left Heathrow Airport. It is thought the bag was found in a car park at Heathrow by a member of the public, who then contacted police. The expensive orange Hermes accessory was then handed in to officers at Heathrow police station. No-one has been arrested. "A member of the public contacted us to say they had found it and brought it in," a police spokeswoman said. "We have not yet established what, if anything, is missing." A police source said the bag contained "items", but it was unclear whether the valuable jewellery had been taken. Officers are expected to reunite Lohan with the bag later today. The actress reported the theft to police last night after noticing her handbag had disappeared from her luggage trolley as she left Heathrow's Terminal One. Her spokeswoman Leslie Sloane confirmed that Lohan's bag had contained £500k worth of jewellery. Well ... at least Lindsay can stop crying now ... unless something ends up missing from the bag ... like maybe a digital camera with scandalous pictures? At any rate ... at least the bag has been recovered ... so, Woot!
In somewhat happier news, Ben Affleck and his blushing bride Jennifer Garner were on hand for the LA premiere of Ben's new movie Hollywoodland last night ... here are a few pictures of the happy couple:
Ahhh ... don' they make a lovely sight. I'm sure the fact that they don't seem to like being that close to one another means nothing at all. I'm actually quite interested in seeing Hollywoodland. I am a huge Adrien Brody and Robin Tunney fan ... seeing the two of them in the film might make up for the fact that Ben Affleck is in the flick as well. At least Ben's character dies in the movie ... that's gotta be worth checking out ;) [Source]
Woo hoo! David Beckham and a not pregnant Victoria Beckham arrived in Venice, Italy this week to partake of the Venice Film Festival ... here are a few photos of a supercute Becks and a supersiliconed Posh out for a canal ride and then out for the festival:
I can't get over how cute Becks looks in that hat. I'd prolly make fun of anyone else who would dare wear it in public but it just works on Becksie poo. The man always looks F-A-B in a suit or tux and this is no exception. He really has a great sense of style. It's nice that he is always such an attention stealer, his beauty tends to draw the eye away from Victoria's frightening collar bones and bulbous boobs. [Source]
But see ... Becks doesn't have to be all dressed up to look good ... oh, no he doesn't ... check out these adorable pictures of David Beckham picking up his two sons Brooklyn and Romeo from school earlier this week (before he went to Venice) wearing a simple outfit from Abercrombie & Fitch:
I'm dying. Cute and simple ... I actually have those shorts and flip flops ... but I do not have the shirt (yet). Click HERE to get your very own David Beckham approved Abercrombie & Fitch t-shirt. It doesn't matter what he wears, David Beckham is one sexy mothereffer. [Source]
And speaking of sexy mothereffers ... here are pictures of Jake Gyllenhaal riding his bike thru the Hollywood Hills ... with his shirt unzipped:
Le sigh. [Source]
Here's another Le sigh of sorts, check out these pictures of Stephen Dorff chillin' on the beach, filling up his belly with beer as he hangs out with Rachel Stevens:
Yeah, I kinda omitted the Rachel Stevens from this set of pics ... you don't mind, do you? Some people tend to think that if I call someone "husky" or "beefy" that I'm saying they're "fat and ugly" ... nothing could be further from the truth. Stephen has got a pretty sizeable belly going on in these pics ... and I don't really mind one bit :) [Source]
Here are a couple pictures of Fergie on the red carpet at the Fashion Rocks concert here in NYC last night:
Fergie Ferg seems annoyed that Scarlett Johansson tried to outfug her at the LA premiere of The Black Dahlia earlier this week so Fuggy Ferg had to bring out the big guns. Point to Fergie, she now takes the lead. [Source]
Here is your first look at John Travolta dressed as Edna Turnblad for the Hairspray movie:
Lucky for him he didn't need to wear a fat suit. I gotta say, John makes a pretty heinous-looking woman. I realize that is the intent so ... kudos to him! [Source, Source]
So ... seriously ... Kristin Cavallari and DJ AM?
I was under the impression that Kristin had graduated from high school. Personally, as a Kristin fan, I really hope she's not going after Adam ... that would be a lame stunt that I would expect from someone like Kyndra or Cami from this season of Laguna Beach. Altho, I can see how KC might think she has to compete with the new, younger girls. Boo! [Source]
Brad Pitt is on the cover of Esquire magazine wearing frumpy and ill-fitting clothing ...
... and yet, he still looks sexxxy. Go figure. [Source]
And finally, Xtina Aguilera is looking ab fab on the cover and in the pages of the British magazine Glamour:
And she's looking almost equally fab (tho not as fab as in Glamour) on the cover of the Aussie version of Cosmopolitan magazine this month:
Thank god, no more red lipstick. Xtina, you look amazing like this ... keep it up! [Source]

We had fun ... we even ran into our good friend Danny who was randomly at the show under the guise that he was "working" when, in fact, he is a raging Teddy Geiger fan. What a doll.
I have to give a huge shout out to Pink reader Jill who I met at the show last night ... please give Rachel my best! XO
After the show, we went out for pizza and made a brief cameo at The Annex for Ultragrrrl's weekly party. It was so brief we were there and home before even Ultra got to the club.
Tonight, David's parents are coming into the city for his dad's 60th birthday so we'll be partying with them tonight. I hope y'all have a great weekend ... I am out!
