Actress Rose Mcgowan has accepted the blame for the blaze that almost gutted her Los Angeles home, insisting her lack of kitchen savvy led to the 30 September (13) drama. Firefighters were called to the Planet Terror star's property after McGowan's pal Courtenay Semel reported the fire.
McGowan returned to her home on Monday night and took to Twitter.com to update fans and followers about the aftermath of the blaze, writing, "Back in the house. It smells like burnt metal and my eyes are burning. Grateful."
Spotted leaving the Chateau Marmont with Semel on Wednesday (02Oct13), McGowan told a TMZ.com cameraman she was "trying to be healthy and cook eggs".
Actress Rose Mcgowan came close to losing her home in a blaze on Monday night (30Sep13). Firefighters raced to the Planet Terror star's property in Los Angeles to battle the fire after McGowan's pal Courtenay Semel alerted emergency services to the crisis.
Taking to Twitter.com to share the drama with her fans, McGowan writes, "Well, my house almost burnt down tonight. Thanks courtenaysemel for calling the fire dept and saving my house."
She later returned to her home after firefighters left, and insisted she was grateful it was still standing. She added, "Back in the house. It smells like burnt metal and my eyes are burning. Grateful. Goodnight, moon."
The Yahoo! heiress was awakened by firemen banging down the door to her home on Saturday (12Jun10), reports TMZ.com.
Reports suggest a house guest had left a flat iron on a bed, causing the mattress to burst into flames.
The socialite, who has hit headlines for romancing TV star Tila Tequila and late Johnson & Johnson heiress Casey Johnson, suffered through the weekend with vomiting, laboured breathing and severe headaches.
She was admitted to hospital on Monday (14Jun10), where she received oxygen. She has since been released by doctors.
Speaking exclusively to HollyScoop.com, Semel insists that, contrary to reports, the fire was no accident.
She says, "I'm concerned for my safety because I think it was intentionally done. There's an ongoing investigation."
The pint-sized pin-up claims she has stepped up to be the surrogate mother for her brother and sister-in-law, and that she is in the first stages of pregnancy.
On her Twitter.com page, she writes, "BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: I am going to become a SURROGATE MOTHER for my brother & his Wife!!!
"That is my xmas present to them. I'm pregnant!!!! THIS WIILL CHANGE HIS LIFE & MINE FOREVER!"
The strange announcement comes just weeks after she confirmed she was engaged to Casey Johnson, the heiress to the Johnson & Johnson fortune, via an internet video just hours after the pair fell for each other.
Johnson's ex lover, Courtenay Semel, later claimed the engagement ring her former partner proposed with was a fake and the same one Johnson gave to her earlier this year (09).
The internet pin-up stunned fans by announcing her engagement to the Johnson & Johnson heiress via video posting website Ustream.com on Wednesday morning (09Dec09).
While kissing Johnson, she told fans, "We have an announcement... This is exclusive and going to be all over the news tomorrow, but because I love you guys so much, we are giving you the exclusive first - Tila army fans - tonight, my girlfriend has asked me to marry her!"
But Johnson's ex lover, Courtenay Semel, claims the diamond band is second hand - insisting Johnson gave her the same ring while they were dating earlier this year (09).
Semel tells RadarOnline.com, "I can confirm that the engagement ring given to Tequila by Johnson was not purchased for her. It has previously been worn by me, a statement I can back up with photographic evidence."
And Semel states Tequila is in for another shock - the "17-carat diamond ring" is a fake. She adds, "It is absolutely not real and Casey is well aware. I would not expect Tila to be able to differentiate a real diamond from a fake one. Her ring is as real as her engagement!"
The actress has blasted Michael Lohan for concerns he made public at a press conference and in a TV interview last week (ends15Oct09), and has threatened to file for a restraining order against her father - but that hasn't stopped him from speaking out.
His letter, published in the new issue of In Touch, begins with an apology for "the pain and inner turmoil that I am responsible for, for being away in prison or getting divorced from Mom."
Calling Lindsay "my blessed daughter," the born-again Christian adds, "I have held your vacant body in my arms, felt the tears fall down your face, and I tried every way to make you see what is happening to you.
"I have helped so many others 'successfully,' Linds, please, Honey, let me help you. Let me help you get your life back so that you can build it to where you once were."
Michael alleges his daughter is hooked on prescription drugs and needs help - claims Lindsay dismisses.
He concludes by writing, "God bless us all in this time of need. I hope and pray to hold 'my Lindsay' in my arms once again. Soon. Love Dad."
The publication has also obtained a letter written by Lohan's former pal Courtenay Semel, who underwent rehab earlier this year (09) to address her own substance abuse problems.
The socialite writes, "I look at you and I want to cry. I see myself in you six months ago."
Lindsay Lohan embarked on a secret lesbian affair with aspiring actress Courtenay Semel before meeting Samantha Ronson, it has been claimed.
Semel, the daughter of Yahoo! CEO Terry Semel, insists she was the Mean Girls star's first gay love.
She claims they kept their affair secret because of the actress' fear of coming out to the world.
She says, "Everyone thinks Samantha is Lindsay's first lesbian love but we were very passionate until her fear of being found out drove us apart."
She adds, "At the time she was terrified her career would be over if she revealed her sexual tendencies. But then Samantha came on to the scene and I was dropped."

Singer/model Tila Tequila has refused to return for a third Shot at Love on MTV--because she's found a mate.
The bisexual 26-year-old enjoyed romantic encounters with men and women in a bid to find a partner on two seasons of the hit reality show, but she won't be back for a third series.
Tequila tells In Touch magazine she's found real love with new girlfriend Courtenay Semel, and doesn't want to jeopardize her new relationship by cavorting with wannabe lovers on TV.
She says, "MTV asked me to do another season, but I don't want to do that right now. I'm going to do something else with my life. It's time to move on."
Tequila was "humiliated" at the end of her show's second season when Playboy model contestant Kristy Morgan dumped her during a highly-charged finale, but now she insists she's found true romance with Yahoo! CEO Terry Semel's daughter, a former party pal of Lindsay Lohan's.
