Friends say Lindsay Lohan wasn't prepared for the harsh criticism of her Lifetime movie "Liz & Dick." And instead of providing the career comeback the troubled star expected, her performance has left many wondering if she will ever be taken seriously as an actress again.
However, not everyone agrees. Her dad, Michael Lohan, thought his daughter's performance proved once again that she is right up there with Meryl Streep.

Two and a Half Men's Angus T. Jones Trashes Show, Calls CBS Comedy "Filth"
Two and a Half Men may be a comedy, but it sure courts its fair share of drama. A video of the sitcom's youngest star Angus T. Jones trashing the comedy surfaced online today, in which he calls the juggernaut CBS hit "filth." In the 15-minute religious testimonial for Forerunner Chronicles, which was posted to YouTube, Jones directly urges viewers not to tune in, saying, "If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching Two and a Half Men." CBS has yet to comment on Jones' remarks.

SHREDDED POLICE DOCUMENTS USED AS CONFETTI AT MACY'S THANKSGIVING PARADE?
A couple of college students at Macy's 2012 Thanksgiving Day Parade noticed something strange about some of the confetti floating around. Ethan Finklestein, a Tufts University freshman, said, "It landed on [a friend's] shoulder and it says 'SSN' and it's written like a social security number, and we're like, 'That's really bizarre.' Once they started picking up other pieces of confetti they noticed a pattern. Finklestein explained, "There are phone numbers, addresses, more social security numbers, license plate numbers and then we find all these incident reports from police... This is really shocking. [One of the shreds] says, 'At 4:30 A.M. a pipe bomb was thrown at a house in the Kings Grant' area." It appears that the original documents were shredded horizontally instead of vertically, allowing specific lines to be easily read. On Monday (November 26th) sources close to the investigation revealed that a Nassau County Police Department employee who was watching the parade near 65th street brought the shredded documents for him and his family and friends to use as confetti.
