Entertainment behind the scenes
You can feel things coming to a close on So You Think You Can Dance, as season 6 heads into it’s finale next Tuesday.
On Wednesday’s results show there were a couple of odd moments worth noting before getting down to who made it through: A shout out to DJ Samantha Ronson (perhaps best known for her relationship with Lindsay Lohan) for her remix work this week and a performance by the popular South Korean girl group the Wonder Girls (do they sing any other songs aside from “Nobody”?). After last week’s showstopping performance by the Legion of Extraordinary Dancers, the filler on Wednesday did not seem to generate quite as much enthusiasm — though the tension of the second last week of competition perhaps kept things more subdued.
Among the male competitors, contemporary dancer Jakob Carr and krumper Russell Ferguson were safe. “You are such an inspiration to so many dancers out there,” judge Mary Murphy told Russell.
It was an emotional Legacy Perez who said goodbye in his first appearance in the bottom. Ryan Di Lello’s spectacular cha cha, along with his heart-felt (and okay, romantic) plea to vote for his wife, likely bolstered his support.
Now that actress Lindsay Lohan and celebrity DJ Samantha Ronson are broken up, the “Mean Girls” star seems to be talking more candidly about her relationship with Ronson than when the two women were going out.
In an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday, the 22-year-old Lohan told the chat show host that she and Ronson are still friends, even though after their breakup early this month members of Ronson’s family inquired about obtaining a restraining order against the actress. Lohan told DeGeneres that she did not know the breakup was coming.
The “Mean Girls” actress was barred from a Ronson family party on Friday, and a locksmith was seen at Ronson’s home, where Lohan had resided in recent months, E! said.
E! Online Tuesday offered parts of an interview with Lindsay Lohan in which the young actress sounds off on recent stories in the celebrity media that have her out of money, out of work and out of a relationship with Samantha Ronson.
She complains: “If people would just leave my personal life alone — because it’s really not that interesting— then I could land a great role, but all the sicko fans and the noise is so distracting.”
The new year is only a few days old, but already 2009 is full of celebrity couples news.
Craig Ferguson, the host of “The Late Late Show” on U.S. network CBS, got married over the holidays. But celebrity watchers didn’t know about it until he announced on his show early Tuesday morning that he married art dealer Megan Wallace-Cunningham. The Scottish-born Ferguson showed off pictures of himself in a kilt at the wedding, which is his third marriage.

For months now, Lindsay Lohan has been out in public with gal pal DJ Samantha Ronson, and speculation has swirled around whether the pair are involved in a love affair. Along the way, Lohan has made vague statements about the nature of their relationship that many celebrity watchers have taken as confirmation the two are more than just friends.
The most recent entry into the Lohan/Ronson guessing game is an interview Lohan gave to Harper’s Bazaar magazine in which The “Mean Girls” star was still guarded about their relationship. Below is an excerpt from the interview in which she discusses the topic:
“…’I think it’s pretty obvious who I’m seeing,” Lindsay admits after much, much prodding. “I think it’s no shock to anyone that it’s been going on for quite some time. … She’s a wonderful person and I love her very much.”
We’ve been reading with a lot of amusement the headlines that “confirm” Lohan and gal pal Ronson are an item. Lohan was being interviewed on the syndicated radio program “Loveline” Monday night when the DJ asked the “Mean Girls” actress: “You guys, you and Samantha, have been going out for how long now?” Lindsay laughed, and Stryker continued: ”Like, two years, one year, five months, two months?
After pop star Pink’s rant last week against Sarah Palin, Lindsay Lohan declares she can no longer keep biting her tongue when it comes to the most talked-about woman in American politics.
“Is our country so divided that the Republicans best hope is a narrow minded, media obsessed homophobe? “, asks Lohan, 22, in her MySpace blog.
Figuring that out is like putting together a jigsaw puzzle of picture clues, hearsay, and the occasional cryptic comment from the “Mean Girls” actress herself.
Lindsay Lohan’s paternal grandfather has died, which appears to have brought the actress and her father closer together after a public spat, according to reports on a few celebrity web sites on Friday.
Michael Lohan, the actress’ father, told the cable network E!that his father, Richard Lohan, died of cancer on Thursday.
