There are three articles in particular that caused quite a stir this week. Our Editor-in-Chief Bonnie Fuller wrote a very compelling “Bonnie Says” post about our First Lady Michelle Obama and how she should have been by her husband, President Obama‘s side during his national BP speech!

Just yesterday Laurence Sunderland proudly announced there would be a reality show highlighting his 16-year-old daughter Abby’s sailing trip around the world, but after receiving tons of criticism and “balloon dad” comparisons, he conveniently announced the show is no longer happening. Eat your words much?
Backstage at the MTV Movie Awards June 6, Lindsay Lohan was loved by all. Forget that she skipped her May 20 court date to party in Cannes, forget her past DUI, forget that she’s currently wearing an alcohol monitoring device because she can’t be trusted not to booze. Lindsay was getting her life back on track and people loved it! But after making a big show of turning her life around, the 22-year-old actress’ SCRAM bracelet went off at a post-awards party, and Lindsay’s own lawyer had to admit she had been drinking. Given the evidence, are her peers over the drama or is she still scoring sympathy votes for being a hot mess?
The answers are a mixed bag.
The season finale of Glee was pretty epic. Quinn had her baby, Mr. Schuester told Ms. Pillsbury he loved her and Sue Sylvester continued to surprise us by showing some heart. What drama could possibly top season 1? Just you wait — series creator Ryan Murphy says you’re not going to know what hit you come September!

Two of the hottest vampires WE’VE ever seen braved the California sunshine for a cause yesterday — that cause being the season 3 premiere of HBO’s uber-hot series, True Blood. But is Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton) jealous the equally gorgeous Alexander Skarsgard (Eric Northman) is going to be making time with his on and off-screen sweetie, Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse), this season?

Girl, you are in some kind of trouble! Because her SCRAM bracelet went off Sunday night, a warrant was issued for Lindsay Lohan’s arrest but was recalled an hour later after she paid 10% ($20,000) of her $200,000 bail, TMZ reports.
After the hard-partying starlet’s court-ordered alcohol monitoring device went off during a night of partying at Hollywood’s new Las Palmas club post-MTV Movie Awards June 6, Judge Marsha Revel ordered that Lindsay’s lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, have a sit-down at an LA courthouse today, June 8, to discuss the SCRAM bracelet incident.
