Lindsay Lohan on SNL

Lindsay Lohan poked fun at her troubled personal life when she hosted Saturday Night Live last weekend.

The Mean Girls actress - who has endured several stints in rehab and a string of legal problems in recent years - kicked off the show by referring to her stint under house arrest in the opening monologue. "Wait, so the alarm goes off if I leave the stage?" she joked.

Bridesmaids actress Kristen Wiig also mocked the guest host, giving her a hug that turned into a body search for illicit substances, quipping "she's clean" at the end.

Katherine Heigl on Entertainment Weekly cover

Although many people assumed (like I still do) that Katherine Heigl chose to leave Grey’s Anatomy for the big screen, the actress says that simply isn’t true.

In the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, Heigl claims that her early exit from the show - she cut her contract 18 months short - was prompted by the arrival of her adopted daughter, Naleigh. “I started a family and it changed everything for me,” Katherine stated. “It changed my desire to work full-time.”

Upcoming Heroes Death Not So Shocking

Kristen Dos Santos

While reporter Kristin Dos Santos has been the source of many a good TV spoilers, she posted a breaking story on E!‘s site regarding Heroes that wasn’t quite so… shocking.

On top of divulging the “spoiler” flat-out in the title, Santos confirms the fact that Adrian Pasdar has been offed on the NBC action-drama. Wait a second—hasn’t he already been dead as of last season? I doubt that anyone was counting on a hero to bring him back from the afterlife…

VIDEO: Dehydrated Survivor Contestant Collapses During Challenge


Even though he’s already seen a contestant medivaced out of the Australian Outback after falling into a fire (you can relive that moment after the jump), Survivor‘s said last night’s incident with Russell Swan frightened him. “It was the scariest moment I’ve ever had on this show…nineteen seasons I have never been more afraid in my life of how bad things were.”

During a reward challenge, Swan collapsed in the middle of the competition due to hydration. Although the severity of the problem was initially unclear (all of the survivors were blindfolded), Probst immediately paused the challenge once he recognized the situation. The challenge was later canceled altogether.

“For the next 45 minutes we monitored Russell’s vital signs. We gave him water from his canteen. We gave him oxygen. We propped him up and gave him time to try to relax and get calm,” Probst detailed for Entertainment Weekly. Although there are times contestants return to the game after a visit with medics, the 42-year-old attorney was never given a choice. An unexpected drop in blood pressure forced the producers to end Swan’s run for him.

Kiefer Sutherland on 24We should have known the show was troubled when they decided to bring Kim back

Even though the writers of were given extra time to craft a new season, production on the show will be halted for nearly three weeks starting September 15. (Filming will resume October 9.) The program’s executive producer told Entertainment Weekly this creative pause was needed to perfect the ending.

“We had a couple of scripts that we weren’t happy with. We just couldn’t get this direction to work, and we found another one that we liked better, so we wound up retooling it,” Howard Gordon stated.

While this news may be upsetting to impatient 24 fans - the show was already pushed back a year thanks to the writers’ strike - the delay will supposedly not affect the drama’s start date. Since eight episodes were already in the can before the last work stoppage, production was already ahead of schedule.

Day 7 of 24 will premiere sometime in January. Until then, a two-hour prequel will air on November 23.
