Lindsay Lohan Leaves Rehab to Go Shopping with Dad
Lindsay Lohan has reunited with her estranged father. The troubled actress took a break from rehab to spend time shopping with her father Michael. The two were seen shopping together at a Palm Desert, California shopping center. Father and daughter spent most of their time perusing a jewelry store. According to Radar Online, “She appeared genuinely happy to be spending time with her father.” This is not the first time the troubled actress has left the Betty Ford Clinic to go shopping. Last week she visited a Forever 21 store and purchased $250 worth of loungewear. Lohan has completed about 5 weeks of rehab and has been ordered to stay at the Betty Ford Clinic until early in the New Year. [Radar Online]
The Queen of England is on Facebook
Your chance to “like” or “poke” the Queen of England has just arrived. Today the British monarch joined the social networking website Facebook. You won’t exactly be able to “friend” or message Queen Elizabeth II as she doesn’t have her own profile page. Rather she and Buckingham Palace have a fan page. The page will detail the queen’s daily schedule, as well as photos and videos of the queen doing queenly things. The British royal family has a history of utilizing technology to reach the masses. In 1997 they launched a website, in 2007 a YouTube video channel and last year they launched a Twitter feed. [NY Daily News]
Lily Allen Recovering From Blood-Poisoning Condition

Less than a week after suffering her second miscarriage, Lily Allen was rushed to a hospital in London late last week to be treated for a blood-poisoning condition. Allen is apparently being treated for septicaemia and is currently recovering from the potentially fatal condition. The feisty pop starlet "is responding well to treatment and her condition continues to improve," says her rep. The singer was hospitalized four days after a spokesman confirmed that she and boyfriend Sam Cooper had "lost their baby." Sounds like a rough week at the office for Ms. Allen. [LA Times]
Jerry Jones Just Saved a lot of Money on Food Per Diems
How bad do you have to be at your job for Jerry Jones to send you packing? Well, just ask Wade Phillips, because today he found out just how much suckitude is required to get fired in Dallas. Jerry Jones told ESPN "An in-season coaching change is not something I've done before, something I was reluctant to do as recently as last week. But I think what's best for the organization and the fans is a coaching change." Actually, a winning season would have probably been best, but firing the worst head coach in the NFL is almost as good. [ESPN]
Oregon is Really Committed to Being Ugly
Every week the Oregon Ducks parade around in a Nike designed ensemble that forces fans to wonder why their normal jerseys keep getting lost at the airport. Luckily, nobody will be paying attention to the clothes on their backs during basketball season, though, when the team steps on the hideous new hardwood the school has installed. Click below to witness the insanity. [Operation Sports]
