Let's Get This Party Started: Top Stories for Tuesday 06/27/06

6/27/2006 9:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan is such a tireless party girl that even her entourage can't keep up. The fiery flame-haired actress rocked New York so hard last week that a stylist she flew out from LA to accompany her had to bail and go back home.



Stylist Nate Newell was hired by Lohan to help her out as she promoted "A Prairie Home Companion" last week in Manhattan. But, according to this morning's Page Six, Newell found out that hanging with the 19-year-old Lohan in Gotham isn't child's play: She was spotted at Bungalow 8 every night, danced at PM, whooped it up at Marquee, and got into well-publicized spats with Paris Hilton and even P. Diddy at Butter and elsewhere -- and that was just at night.

It was all a bit much for Newell, who had to get cash from friends to buy a ticket home. Lohan was apparently none too happy about being ditched because after he left, according to Page Six, she text-messaged her friends, "[Newell] is dead to me," and is making him pay for his travel and lodging expenses.

All of which, of course, Lohan's very busy publicist Leslie Sloane Zelnick (who also reps Britney) says is bunk, telling the Post: "Please. Nate ... had a great time. He had to get back to Los Angeles for work. There was no drama whatsoever."

Rush Limbaugh Detained With Little Blue Pills

Right-wing radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh found himself in a slightly embarrassing situation Monday when he was held by authorities at the Palm Beach International Airport with a bottle of Viagra that didn't have his name on it.

Customs officials found a prescription bottle of the erectile dysfunction treatment in Limbaugh's luggage, but its label had two doctors' names on it rather than Rush's. According to Limbaugh's lawyer, Roy Black, the drugs were prescribed for Limbaugh but the bottle was "labeled as issued to the physician rather than Mr. Limbaugh for privacy purposes."

There was no word on Tuesday morning as to whether the latest incident, which could result in a second-degree misdemeanor, would affect a deal Limbaugh made last month with prosecutors to settle a case involving overlapping painkiller prescriptions.

No More Room on "View" for Star

We may not get to see Rosie and Star claw it out after all: Star Jones is planning to leave ABC's "The View," and according to Lloyd Grove, she's already signed a "lucrative deal" with another television outlet.

Former lawyer Star has already met with CBS, Court TV, and E! about a new destination, and since making her decision has been "on cloud nine ... She's been acting as though she doesn't have a care in the world. That's why she was so pleasant, even when Sandra Bernhard was trying to bait her for a confrontation on the show."

Speaking of confrontations, speculation has been rampant about what Jones would do when O'Donnell arrived on the set this September, after O'Donnell pricked her about her weight loss in the press, saying that her recent book was "like selling bulls -- to the point that it's sickening." Barbara Walters nor anyone else at "The View" had comment on the reports.



Naomi Sued Again by Another Servant -- Appears in Court Today

Naomi Campbell is being sued by yet another of her domestic help, just as she is appearing in Manhattan Criminal Court on charges of assaulting a maid.

A terse filing in state Supreme Court says that Gaby Gibson is accusing the supermodel of "personal injuries," "employment discrimination," "civil assault," "civil battery," and other complaints. No particular acts were mentioned, but Gibson has said in a published interview that Campbell was upset about her not being able to find a pair of jeans.

Which, of course, is what allegedly made her so upset that she bashed Ana Scolavino on the back of her head with a jewel encrusted Blackberry, the charge for which she is appearing in court this morning. Campbell faces up to seven years in prison and deportation if convicted. No comment was available from her lawyers.

Rowling says Harry Potter Could Die in Final Book

Younger children may want to turn away from this item: J.K. Rowling hinted yesterday on British TV that she may kill off Harry Potter in the last installment of the hugely successful series of books that have made her Britain's richest woman. "I have never been tempted to kill him off before the final because I've always planned seven books, and I want to finish on seven books," Rowling said. She says she finished the final chapter in "something like 1990," and, exercising somewhat questionable control over her own narrative, that two of the characters die "that I didn't intend to die."

But Rowling also said she didn't want any sequels written by others and so the seventh book will be the final one -- and as a result, young Harry might meet also his end. Regardless of what happens to Harry in the books, the fifth film based on the Rowling books -- "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" will arrive in US theaters in July 2007.

"Frasier"'s Terrier Passes Away

Moose, the constant canine sidekick to John Mahoney and Kelsey Grammer known as "Eddie," passed away last week, according to PEOPLE magazine.

The spunky Jack Russell terrier, who was 16-and-a-half years old and who we once had the privilege to spend a few minutes with at Universal Studios several years ago, died of old age. Though Moose had a starring role in the 2002 heartwarmer "My Dog Skip" with Frankie Muniz, he will be best remembered for his scene-stealing antics with the therapists and their grumpy dad on the long-running NBC sitcom "Frasier."

Who CARES if she kills him off. She WROTE him. I personally think it would be a fabulous end to the books. I've suspected it since the fourth book.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but...she wrote that last chapter of the final installment in the early 90's so I don't think it's fair to say she is doing it now that she made millions at our expense.

I think it is unreal that the harry potter stuff is so stretched out over so many years. It is unreal that this whole series is taking so many years. I have 4 boys and we have the books and all the movies but all the years between is just unreal and my kids are really getting sick of waiting and getting bored with it and really not into it as much as they use to be. I like harry potter don't get me wrong but it is just getting too drawn out and taking too many years. 2 stars

I don't think she'll be killing of Harry in the final book. She said two had to die in order for one to live. I think Harry will live, but Ron and Hermione will die. The hero is destined to be alone.

I mean really folks...it's fiction. Rowlings wrote the books and has a right to do whatever she chooses with the characters. I kinda think people get the line between reality and fantasy blurred. If Harry dies...WOW never saw that coming but....it's fantasy. Oh yeah and as far as protecting her intellectual property, she has a right to do that. If she wants to end the series of stories at seven books, it's her story and her decision. I enjoy the books, the characters etc...but it is after all fiction and not as important as say global warming.

Star, Linsay, Naomi et al get over yourselves.

RIP Moose.

View making a big mistake hiring Rosie, she can do a show by herself and doesn't need anyone else. Joy is already the comedian, show doesn't need another one. Rosie is too loud, has too many opinions and doesn't listen to anyone. I loved the view but don't know if I will continue to watch anymore.

She got exactly what she wanted.....all these people talking about it and she is getting plenty of free press!
Besides, it has to end someway. If you know the main character is going to live then where's the mystery? It's all just for publicity and book sales! That is after all, her job.

It takes time to write a book/make a movie, no matter what, so the waiting part doesn't bother me- it just makes it that much more exciting for when the book/movie comes out! And as for comment 6- I think a lot of non-12 year olds will care if Harry gets killed off! Including myself and I am nowhere near a 12 year old. People have come to love this character and if he gets killed off, it will be upsetting- no doubt about it. However, if Rowling does decide to kill him off, I am surely not going to protest, or boycott or not buy anything of hers blah blah blahhhh. Like Diane said, whatever she chooses to do- I will be a loyal fan always! Rowling is a brilliant writer, she knows what she's doing.
