Lohan Film Axed after Vegas Voyage?

Lindsay Lohan's next film just got the final 86 -- and one crew member claims it's because the funding dried up after LiLo was spotted playing in Las Vegas.

According to Page Six, the set designer on "Poor Things," starring Shirley MacLaine, sent an email around saying that the plug had been pulled, and explained, "Apparently, Ms. Lohan's antics in Las Vegas over the weekend have scared the bond companies and all of the funding has been pulled."

It didn't seem to make any difference that Lohan wasn't boozing during her trip to Sin City. A friend of Lohan responds to the Post: "She had nothing to do with that movie shutting down. It was a mess to begin with ... producers spent money like water."

Silverman to Paris – My Bad for MTV Smackdown

Sarah Silverman, acid-tongued comedienne, says she actually feels "bad" about the vicious -- but funny -- jokes she made at Paris Hilton's expense the night she went to jail. You'll remember that Silverman made cracks about Hilton's jail time during the MTV Movie Awards, including one about prison bars and penises -- and TV cameras showed Paris visibly upset by the jabs. "I looked down and saw a man in her face with a camera ... I was there to be funny and I was, but that doesn't mean I can't feel bad about it."
