After partying until 4 a.m., just a few hours before her plane was scheduled to leave Cannes, Lindsay Lohan hopped a flight home to Los Angeles, drinking wine on the flight Saturday night. She had Sunday to sober up and prepare to appear in court today for a hearing in her 2007 DUI case. Concerned friends tell TMZ that Lohan will not be able to comply with Judge Marsha Revel's expected bail conditions -- that Lohan stop drinking alcohol, wear a SCRAM bracelet that is able to detect alcohol in her system and submit to random drug testing. "She can't make it through a day without it. She's a mess," one friend said. Lohan was in drug and alcohol rehab twice in 2007, when she was 20. If Revel finds Lohan in violation of her probation in the 2007 DUI case, she could be sent to jail for 180 days, UsMagazine reports. One thing that will not be discussed in court is a photo unearthed by TMZ, reportedly taken while Lohan was in Cannes, sitting with a man and a woman next to a table on which two lines of powder are visible. A prosecutor says there's no way to tell what the powder is.
Also flying into Los Angeles was Sarah Ferguson, the ex-wife of Prince Andrew of England, who "looked red-eyed and stunned," left, after film of her agreeing to introduce Andrew to an undercover reporter posing as a businessman was aired. Ferguson shook hands with the man after he said he would give her $717,649, or 500,000 pounds sterling. Ferguson, a former Weight Watchers spokesman who has written several children's books, walked away with $40,000 in cash in a bag during a filmed meeting with the reporter. After the embarrassing video was aired, causing a firestorm in Britain, Ferguson offered to move out of the royal family's taxpayer-financed lodgings she occupies with her two daughters. Ferguson, who was seen nervously chewing at her fingernails, is in Los Angeles to accept an award for her work with disadvantaged children.
Rocker Bret Michaels overcame his many health issues to win this season's "Celebrity Apprentice" over his final competitor, Holly Robinson-Peete. Doctors were standing by on the New York City set as Michaels competed in the live finale of the ninth season despite suffering a brain hemorrhage on April 21, being hospitalized last week for a TIA, or mini-stroke, and gearing up for surgery to repair the newly discovered hole in his heart. All of the singer's health issues are complicated by the fact that he is a diabetic. In the final assignment, to create a new drink flavor for Snapple and come up with an advertising campaign, Michaels' "Trop-A-Rocka Blend" won over Robinson-Peete's "Compassionberry Tea." Michaels' $250,000 grand prize went to the American Diabetes Association. Robinson-Pete's charity, the HollyRod Foundation, is also receiving $250,000 to support people with autism -- her son is autistic.
Actor Michael Madsen, who played "Mr. Blond" in "Reservoir Dogs," went on a nine-day drinking binge in London and was hospitalized after trying three times to jump out of the ambulance that was taking him there. But a friend denies reports that the actor, who is the brother of Virginia Madsen, was suicidal. The situation was "nothing even close to suicide watch," the friend told TMZ, adding, "He would never do that." Upon his release from the hospital, Madsen left immediately for the United States. Back in 2008, Madsen was briefly held in a psych ward in Los Angeles.
The "Survivor" producer who was called a person of interest in the murder of his wife in Mexico on April 8 has returned to the United States. The attorney for Bruce Beresford-Redman, seen at left with wife Monica, told CNN Sunday that he has "returned to Los Angeles County to be with his children and to attend to family and personal matters." Lawyer Richard Hirsch said, "He has been informed that he has no legal obligation to remain in Mexico pending the investigation." Beresford-Redmond has not been charged, so his attorney says he intends to seek custody of his two children, Camila, 5, and Alec, 4, who are currently under the temporary guardianship of his parents. Police confiscated Beresford-Redman's passport on April 8 after the body of Monica Beresford-Redmond was discovered in a sewer near the Cancun resort where the couple was vacationing. Monica Beresford-Redman's family said, "For over a month, we have patiently waited for the Mexican authorities to take some action," the family said, calling her "an American citizen who was murdered over one month ago in Mexico and she deserves justice."
