Charlie Sheen just gave LINDSAY LOHAN a check for $100,000 to help pay down her IRS debt. She owes $233,904 in unpaid back taxes, so this knocks out about half. Charlie and Lindsay became friends when they were filming cameos in "Scary Movie 5" a few months ago. It's not clear if this is a loan or a gift.
We've gotten past the point of sighing over RIHANNA taking back CHRIS BROWN. But at least we can still be upset over Chris Brown dragging the good name of BART SIMPSON through the mud.

Recently, JUSTIN BIEBER met the Prime Minister of Canada to accept some medal. And for whatever reason, he thought it would be appropriate to wear a ridiculous pair of Dennis the Menace-style OVERALLS. He later laughed about it on Twitter. In fairness he did say he was rehearsing for a show...

This year's Black Friday saw its usual nationwide string of idiocy and violence. A man in Massachusetts went home with the 51-inch TV he'd just bought at a K-Mart . . . but WITHOUT his girlfriend's two-year-old son. Shoppers were robbed in South Carolina, Michigan, and Maryland.
