lindsay lohanEarlier this week the rumor mill started churning when a recent picture of Lindsay Lohan‘s little sister, Ali Lohan, was released. The photo showed so much of a change in Ali’s appearance that there was  a lot of speculation if Ali had a little (or a lot) work done on her face. But being the good sister that she is, Lindsay is speaking out about these accusations and claims that Ali “has never” had any plastic surgery and since Lindsay has such a great track record herself, I’m fully confident in calling her a reliable source. Frankly, I’m just impressed that Lindsay’s even taking the time to come to her sister’s defense, but I suppose she could just be glad that the rumors aren’t all about her for once. Furthermore, an insider also states that “Ali just lost a lot of weight,” and the director for the modeling agency that represents Ali, Alexis Borges, suggests that the girl is simply “growing into her face and body.” And so the excuses begin… – E!

I’m fine.” Even so, an ambulance ended up showing up on the scene to assess the situation, but it looks like the TV host will live to dance another day. – US

Reports claim Nicole Richie and Jessica Simpson have been fighting on the set of their upcoming reality show Fashion Star, but Richie has decided to lay those feud rumors to rest. The fashionista spoke out about the situation on Ryan Seacrest‘s radio show yesterday, saying, “I’ll tell you right now that that couldn’t be further from the truth. I actually love and adore Jessica.” Nicole continues to gush over Jessica with compliments, stating, “Who she is is someone who’s very kind, very sweet and extremely smart and a great businesswoman and someone that I really respect … I actually couldn’t love someone or respect someone more.” Well at least she’s not going overboard. – People
