It’s Monday and that means the weekend is over. It also means that we have a few things to catch up on. Normally we don’t like gossipy news but this stuff is more ridiculous than gossipy. This weekend, the star of Arthur, Russell Brand, went to jail and back, Blake Lively‘s become more popular than ever with her new movie The Town, and our favorite actress-turned-overexposed-celebrity admits to a failure.

Here’s the random fluff that went on over the weekend…

  • When we last checked, Russell Brand was busy filming the 1981 remake Arthur. Maybe he’s been playing the character too long because it seems that Arthur has rubbed off on the fellow star. MTV UK says Brand was arrested this weekend for lashing out at a photographer who tried to take a photo up the skirt of his bride-to-be pop-singer Katy Perry. Being the playboy that he is, Brand tweeted: “Thanks for all your sweet messages of support. After the tips I picked up in chokey I’m an infinitely more proficient criminal.” Well done Russell! Support your lady!
  • So The Town did well this weekend, and now one of its stars is the talk of the town herself, Blake Lively. Though Lively stars in a hit TV show on the CW, she’s only manage to be in a handful of movies. With The Town she proved she can act, next she’ll be opposite Ryan Reynolds in the Green Lantern, then she can prove she’s a movie star! Did Lively make an impression on you? Is she the next “it” girl even though she’s been around?
  • Ricki Lake, known for her role as Tracy Turnblad in the original Hairspray and later her talk show, lost her Malibu home this weekend in a fire says Reality TV World. Talk about real life drama! Thankfully she and her children got away unharmed.
  • And yes, the ultimate joke. If you’re not like most people, the you’re hoping Lindsay Lohan will get back from wherever it is she fell from and give us a damn good performance (because we all know she can). But before anyone director tries to save Lohan’s career, she might just be heading back to jail. TMZ first reported that Lohan had failed her most recent drug test, and now the actress has confirmed it via Twitter: “Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test if I am asked, I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next week as a result.” It seems like it’ll be some time before Lohan is wowing us on the big screen. Meanwhile, you can watch Machete, it’s good!
