Dina Lohan Spars With Matt Lauer During Tense Today Show Interview, Caught Out In Lies
In August, Lindsay Lohan‘s mother Dina Lohan erroneously insisted in an interview with The Today Show‘s Matt Lauer, that her famous daughter had only been in rehab twice.
Up to that point, Lindsay had been in treatment facilities four times since 2007 (it’s five now) — a fact that was apparently lost on Dina.
Lauer double checked his facts and confronted Dina in a second segment in which Dina said she didn’t count two of the stints in question because they were “not court-ordered.”
“When it’s court ordered, it’s not your judgment call — it’s the court’s,” Dina told Lauer. “So, she is back. She is doing wonderfully there. The judge was recused from the case. She was the one that ordered this last one … because of a legal situation, she may actually get out of rehab earlier at this time.”
NJ Housewives’ Teresa Screams Two Inches From Danielle’s Face: ‘B*tch, I’m Gonna Pin You Down!’
The Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s reunion show was quite memorable, as it featured one of three Jersey-related reality TV catfights on this very list.
In this instance, temperamental housewife Teresa Giudice threatened the provocative Danielle Staub after a season of acrimony and discord between the two.
“B****, I’m gonna pin you down! Do not break up my family!” Giudice said. “I f***ing hate you so much!”
Surprisingly, the women would kiss and make-up in the episode following the emotional exchange.
Catfight! Snooki & Angelina Brawl On Jersey Shore
Angelina Pivarnic and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi got into a knock-down, drag-out brawl on Jersey Shore after Snooki revealed she’d hooked up with a fella Angelina had a history with.
After an argument ensued over “sloppy seconds,” both Snooki and Pivarnic were out of words, as they wrestled on the floor.
Pivarnic later told a Detroit radio station her tension with Snooki was about cast member Vinny Guadagnino (who both “smushed” with, at different points in the show’s timeline).
Snooki “got mad at me for having sex with Vinny,” Pivarnick explained. “Meanwhile she was bringing guys home and he was bringing girls home. I had no idea that she actually like Vinny in that way, like, I had no idea and you know she never explained that to me, like hey don’t touch Vinny whatever.”
Letterman Rips Leno, Blames Him For Tonight Show Mess
David Letterman couldn’t resist jumping in the fray of The Tonight Show meltdown earlier this year, jumping on the words of his longtime arch-rival Jay Leno for his hostile takeback of The Tonight Show from Conan O’Brien.
After Leno gave a speech telling his audience not to blame O’Brien for the three-ring circus, Letterman unleashed a monologue incinerating the Machiavellian Leno for his deceptive ways.
“I said to myself, ‘No one is blaming Conan,’” Letterman said. “He further elucidated that who we should actually blame is Conan’s agents and managers … and then Jay pointed out that he himself has no agent or manager.
“So I’m begging you, ladies and gentlemen, please don’t blame Conan. I know a lot of you people think Conan pushed himself out of a job. He’s not that kind of guy. He would never do that to himself. In the thousands and thousands of words printed about this mess, who has blamed Conan? No one! No one has blamed Conan!”
David Letterman, Oprah & Jay Leno’s Lovefest In Super Bowl Ad
In a huge shocker, Oprah, Jay Leno and David Letterman teamed up for a Super Bowl commercial that left America surprised, as there was notable bad blood going different ways on the star-laden couch.
Letterman’s feud with Leno revolved around the 1992 fiasco involving the Tonight Show, while Oprah had longtime bad blood after Dave played a prank on her at a restaurant, telling a waiter Oprah would pick up his tab — of course, she didn’t know that.
“It was very friendly, very professional, totally cordial,” Late Show executive producer Rob Burnett said of the dynamic between Leno and Letterman. “You could tell these were two guys who have known each other for a long time.”
