Lindsay Lohan admitted to Matt Lauer on Thursday that she was counting on her Saturday Night Live hosting gig to begin proving to the world (movie producers) that she’s a trustworthy, still-promising actress who’s ready and willing to work again. Seems like a tall order for a show whose original cast was basically high the entire time they were on air and which has put some episodes in the hands of such capable hands as Charles Barkley.
So, how did she do? It’s kind of hard to tell — it seems like the writers didn’t really put all their faith in LiLo, since in most skits, she was relegated to the sidelines or the straight-man role. Her opening monologue provided the most self-aware laughs: She thanked the show for trusting her as Kenan Thompson and Kristen Wiig checked her sobriety, an alarm went off when she stepped off the stage, and Jimmy Fallon let slip that Jon Hamm was on standby as backup host if she screwed up. She also got big laughs in the “Scared Straight” skit, simply by being her ex-con self. That skit was mostly just funny because everyone, including Lindsay, screwed up their lines and struggled not to crack up after she sang “Every kiss begins with rape” and Jason Sudeikis picked his wedgie. But mostly, Linds got just a line or two while the castmembers took center stage. She was decent as a psychic’s assistant, an illiterate radio show intern, the foxy leader of a gang of delinquent teen girls and Kristen Wiig’s would-be housesitter. But we would have loved to see her in a Digital Short or doing something on Weekend Update. She could have been a great guest on “What Up With That?”
But we don’t entirely blame SNL. If, as many suspect, this is Kristen Wiig’s last season on the show, we wholeheartedly support letting her dominate the entire hour and a half. If Lindsay really is on the up and up, she’ll have more opportunities like this soon. We just suggest she do a little more cue-card training before the next one. Anyway, what did you think?

Rachel Zoe and her husband Rodger Berman went shopping with Skyler in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Friday (March 2). The trio came out of the Salvatore Ferragamo store looking every inch the fashionable family.
In a recent interview in New York City – Zoe talked about how almost 1-year-old Skyler has changed the way she travels.
I have a baby now so I no longer can do anything on the plane instead of look after my son so there’s no more reading or sleeping on planes. Flying for me is a little different now.”
She also said, “Unwinding to me at this point is staying at home with my son and my husband.”
The celebrity stylist is surely sticking to her plans. She recently Tweeted to the Vice President of her brand: “Thank u @mandanadayani for my Hugh Grant box set “love actually” by the fire with @rbermanus is the perfect Friday night :)XoRZ”

Sandra Bullock Suing Watch Company
Posted by Adam
Saturday March 3, 2012
SANDRA Bullock is getting litigious.
The actress is suing a watch company for using her name to promote a diamond-encrusted white-band watch — and she alleges it is being advertised as the same gadget she wore in her Oscar-winning role in 2009 movie The Blind Side.
Sandra also claims her publicity rights have been infringed as a result, and she’s asking a California judge for financial compensation, as well as an injunction.
According to the suit, Sandra “will not voluntarily appear in print or other media for a company or product unless she carefully selects and believes in the company and product, and unless the compensation she receives is commensurate with the value of the exploitation of her name, image, identity, and persona.”
Sandra says her name has a substantial commercial value, and details her credits in the documents.
But she is not said to be asserting any claims on false advertising under the Lanham Act or trademark infringement, as some stars have done in similar cases in the past.
