If you don't understand the importance of putting your best foot forward and looking your best at a court appearance it is you that doesn't get it, Lou.

Oh wait, that's right you do understand the importance of it. You just can't pass up a chance to pick on her that's all.

How classy of you!

I feel safer already! One less ethically bankrupt criminal mastermind to criple our honest merchants! The blight that holds Venice in its Satan's grip is finally starting to lift.

Yea this looks bad on Lindsey. But why didn't the store call her, e-mail her or to ask that the necklace be returned. If Lindsey is also a clipto then why haven't any of her mental health or rehab professionals discovered and treated her for this? She needs to get out of town, just like Ellen Degeneres did and advised Lindsey to do.

Rose5491 - I think that SCAR issue is just printed on all felony court docs. It's just information listed that MIGHT apply, not that it does apply.

Just read # 15. This girl, if she did write all that, is seriously immature. Has she not connected that her behavior is why she keeps going to court and/or jail? I wonder if some of her brain cells are fried. I hope she does a little time in jail. She needs to understand Mommy does not run her world, she does and it's her behind that will be in prison, not Mommy's.

Prison would be the best thing to happen to her. It might just finally make a light go on.

Can't we jsut ****can celebs who fall into patterns like this and find new ones? There are PLENTY of actresses out there who are more talented, MUCH more attractive and don't have issues with drugs, theft, etc.
-
We need to teach ALL celebs that if they want to maintain their celeb status - they can't be f'n douchbags like Lindsay!

The necklace was not lent to her. The store owner already made a statement that any loaned jewelry requires complex, lengthy paperwork to be signed by both parties. They don't ever just hand out jewelry on a verbal promise no matter the celebrity of the borrower or not. It is all done legally and in writing. Lindsay has nothing in writing to back up her claim that the necklace was lent to her. She must think everyone is stupid...she is the ignorant one.

I have a question. Does the felony case (stealing the necklace) go before a trial if she pleads not guilty? If so, how long does it take for a trial date to be set in California?

@116 LouA felonymisunderstanding. Wow, that's a new one. Kind of up there with "the glove don't fit," dontcha think?

Uh Lou, the glove didn't fit and OJ was acquitted. What was your point again? Apparently that argument wasn't as ridiculous to the jury as you think it was. /smirk

His excuse was laughable and even after he was aquitted, people still knew he was guilty. And, like Lindsay, he was arrogant. Arrogant enough to write a book, "If I Did It" which chronicled exactly how the murder was done. He hung himself with his arrogance because he ended up in prison for a looooooong time after his last robbery...because, like Lindsay, people wanted to see him pay for his crime.

So, just like, "the glove don't fit," was a joke, so is Nichole's claim of a felonymisunderstanding.

Unlike you, I don't have to insert a smirk to try to intimidate someone into thinking like I do. I believe that rational argument works much better than bullying tactics.

Lou just ignore puckertt, that is Nicoles other personality. See when Nicole feels bullied "puckett" comes out.

I had a run in with "puckett" the other day he is a real a**hole and gets off (really gets off if you know what i mean) by thinking he has intimidated someone on the TMZ message board.

Oh puckett the glove clearly fit OJ it was just a bit snug and the glove had NOTHING to do with OJ getting off. There were many factors including an alleged racist cop and holes in the prosecutions time line which provided reasonable doubt, since you can not find someone guilty without proof beyond a reasonable doubt that is why OJ got off.

You can keep your smirk to yourself :)
