LILO and SAM making headlines again. Not only recently was their split the topic of many conversations, LILO is now going on a tour of gossip mags to tell her story.
In the newest issue of Us Weekly, Lindsay Lohan opens up about her heartbreaking split from Samantha Ronson, the "humiliating" weekend showdown with Ronson's family, and says that friends' fears she is suicidal are unfounded. "It's absolute hell," Lohan told Us on Monday in a far-ranging interview over several lengthy phone calls and emails where she was both agitated, crying and baffled by the turn of events.
Ronson broke it off with her girlfriend of nearly two years last Friday, and hired five security guards to keep Lohan out of an afterparty for her sister Charlotte at the Chateau Marmont. "The worst night of my life," Lohan -- who was staying directly one floor above the Ronsons with her mom Dina and sister Ali -- tells Us.
The next day, Ronson changed the locks on the Hollywood Hills home she shared with Lohan. On Monday, Ronson's mom and sister asked police about obtaining a restraining order against Lohan, Beverly Hills Sgt. Nutall confirms to Us. "I'm not a bad person and this is what happens," Lohan told Us through tears. "I was raised to treat people well, and I'm so tired of this drama."
Lohan says she's "so alone" without Ronson.
"Everyone's turned on me," says the actress. She tells the magazine that the night of the Chateau showdown, Nicole Richie walked by her and said "Uck," and Drea De Matteo said, "Come at me, bitch." "I'm a 22-year-old girl who's in love," she says. "I felt like I was in Mean Girls, but worse: Mean Girls was a movie."
Sources tell the magazine Ronson had repeatedly tried to break up with Lohan over the past month, but each time, "Lindsay threatens to kill herself -- she cares about her but wants out." Lohan laughs upon hearing that, saying she's okay.
"I'm just really hurt!" she says. "The whole situation is sick."
The third network better known as ABC also has a new television show which premieres tonight called THE UNUSUALS.
Imagine seeing the quirky and interesting side of New Yorks finest. It will be another interesting show, and I actually hope it has some future. Looking at the previews, it looks to be an interesting show.
Imagine opening your mail and being invited to a beautiful wedding on the peaceful and stunning Harpers Island. You can only arrive by ferry and the island sits miles away from the hustle and bustle of busy Seattle streets.
CBS Presents Harpers Island, which I assume is a spin off of the hit show Twin Peaks in essence making it an eerie yet intriguing show. I am kinda excited to watch this one and see how it lands. The show is set on Harpers Island which seven years prior was the scene of multiple murders.
Only 13 episodes in total, so you will have to watch them all to see the twist in the end.

PARKS AND RECREATION
I have mixed emotions about this show. I am a huge fan of Amy Poehler (previously on Saturday Night Live) and since I am formerly from the great Hoosier state of Indiana, I like the fact that finally a television show realized there is a state there. However, do we really need a television show about a Parks and Rec. department? Oh then again, I want a show about radio again, look at how well WKRP did.
Many of you know Ben McKenzie as Ryan Attwood on the show The OC. What a great show by the way, well he is the new star of a new show on NBC called Southland. Rookie cop Ben appears as the lead of the show and tries to make it somewhere in the South end of LA

"A LOT OF PEOPLE EAT IT. SOME EVEN LIKE IT, BUT NO ONE ADMITS IT OR BRAGS ABOUT IT".
Personally I like my spam fried and served on a wedge of cheese on a nice hoagie roll. Oh Irish Ham Sandwiches are the best and can be found in Cincinnati. But the thought posed here is that Spam is what people associate Lima with.
Northstar Brands is currently working on a project for the city of Lima that will help it identify itself and what they need to do to attract new residents, new business, etc. I personally am a huge supporter of the town doing this, its a step in the right direction.
A few of the results that came back explaining Lima:
TIDE: Well regarded and successful. Lima has a current presence and a vibrant history.
FORD: On hard times now but focused on making changes to improve quality and growth.
RODNEY DANGERFIELD: People often overlook the blue collar city for its ritzier neighbors such as Findlay and Fort Wayne.
BARACK OBAMA: Mostly white mixed with a bit of black with a seedy history and an uncertain future.
GEORGE BUSH: There has been no change and the city's reputation has declined.
The greatest assets in/about Lima:
1) HEALTH CARE FACILITIES
2) CIVIC CENTER
The reputation of Lima/Allen county to outsiders and residents:
1) CRIME RIDDEN/UNSAFE
2) DRUG RIDDEN
3) RETAIL HUB
Assets that make Lima a great place:
1) HARDWORKING WORK FORCE
2) HIGHER EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES
3) NATURAL RESOURCES
4) AFFORDABILITY TO LIVE AND PLAY HERE
Challeneges that face the city and county:
1) LACK OF COLLEGE GRADUATES IN THE WORKFORCE
2) REPUTATION AS A UNION TOWN
Tourism strengths that help the county:
1) VENUES FOR MEETINGS/EVENT PLANNERS
2) LOCATION ON INTERSTATE 75 AND LINCOLN HIGHWAY
Greatest weekenesses in tourism:
1) PERCEPTION AS A SMALL TOWN WITH NO AMENITIES
2) PERCEPTION OF BEING AN UNSAFE PLACE
Take it as you will, but this is what people think of the place. Lots of good and lots of bad. But as a citizen of Lima and Allen County, I hope we all work together to make this a great city to live, work and play for generations to come.
During season six, “American Idol” contestants received $30 a day for food, one time hopeful Leslie Hunt, told E! News last year. She said they also received $500 to spend on clothes.
“Once you’re in the top 12, you get a check for even more money if you’re eliminated,” she said. “If you’re within the top two, then you get a car. The higher up you are, the more money you get when you get eliminated. I think the winner received a six-figure amount.”
And while on tour, the “Idols” receive a stipend rumored to be between $1,000 and $5,000, msnbc.com previously reported.
O.J. Simpson is in prison in Nevada serving a 33 year sentence for felony charges stemming from a September, 2007 armed robbery of a sports collectible dealer in Nevada. OJ’s long-suffering girlfriend, Christine Prody, hasn’t wasted any time moving on with her life. Simpson only started serving his sentence in December of last year and Prody is already pregnant with another man’s baby.
