'Mean Girls' characters: Where are they now?

MEAN-GIRLS

This is worse than wearing sweatpants: Mean Girls isn’t getting a Tina Fey-penned sequel!

Despite some hopeful speculation from fans recently, Fey confirmed the news to Extra on Wednesday, saying, “We’re coming up next month on the 10-year anniversary of the original movie… We’re going to see if there’s any way to get everyone together, but not a movie, sadly. We’re all past high school age.” (Mean Girls 2, the 2011 TV movie sequel with a whole new group of girls, is best not mentioned.)

Like any good twenty-something, I love the movie, but the “no sequel” news is totally for the best. There’s no way people wouldn’t be disappointed by whatever they came up with, and now, fans can just continue to watch and love the original as the perfect high school satire that it is. For those that would like a little more, all hope isn’t lost: Fey is directing her energy towards a possible Mean Girls musical (which she told EW about last year in her EW Interview).

Since Fey has made it clear we aren’t going to get Regina and Gretchen’s High School Reunion, just for fun I went ahead and pictured where the whole fetch gang is now, 10 years post-high school. READ FULL STORY

Lindsay Lohan: Appetite for self-destruction

Oprah’s OWN drew solid ratings for the premiere of its Lindsay Lohan docuseries. Are we watching for the wrong reasons? This column originally appeared in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly.

The most honest words uttered in the debut of Lindsay, the new and deeply problematic docuseries about the troubled actress, came not from the maniacally self-absorbed Lohan or the show’s benefactor, Oprah Winfrey. Rather, they came from a fan on the street who was glibly effusive when asked to speak on behalf of the people. “I’m a big fan of Lindsay Lohan,” he said with a happy grin on his face, “both as an actress and as a media sensation.” Isn’t it entertaining when a young woman is so misguided and bent on destruction that she lands in rehab for a sixth time? As a culture we seem to value Lohan, and countless women before her, as little more than cheap spectacle, marveling at how far former good girls can fall from our manufactured pedestals.

The show was not without its odd voyeuristic pleasures. Show business has never looked so unglamorous as when Lohan’s smartly dressed assistant, whose former bosses range from Sean Astin to Prince, was tasked with packing up her floor-to-ceiling-stuffed hotel room. Earlier, Lohan’s storage unit of expensive junk was the size of an abandoned airplane hangar. I’m convinced that if this woman jettisoned 95 percent of her belongings and spent an anonymous year reading novels and going to meetings, she might just have a shot at enjoying her 30s. Instead she’s starring on a reality series whose viewers spent an inordinate amount of Twitter bandwidth snickering about the amount of side boob she exposed during the hour. READ FULL STORY

Lindsay Lohan teases possible 'Mean Girls' reunion on 'Tonight Show', has water war with Jimmy Fallon -- VIDEO

It’s the power of Oprah: This is the Lindsay Lohan people want to see.

The actress stopped by the Tonight Show last night to promote her upcoming reality show, which premieres on OWN this Sunday. Lohan charmingly giggled her way through a light discussion about being a selfie-taking pro, as well as her new life in New York.

But the big bombshell was Mean Girls-related. (That’s the very best kind of bombshell.) As anyone who’s been on the Internet recently is aware, the beloved high school comedy’s 10th anniversary is next month. And, according to Lohan, when she was backstage with Tina Fey before Fallon’s first Tonight Show, the two spoke about doing some kind of reunion. Viral-happy Fallon instantly volunteered to host the shindig on his show. So fetch.

Throwback Thursday: Aaron Carter still publicly pines for Hilary Duff

Long before the Great Aniston/Pitt/Jolie scandal of ’05 or the Less Great Stewart/Pattinson/Guy from Snow White and the Huntsman melee of ’12, Hollywood was home to the modern age’s most scintillating celebrity love triangle. It involved fresh-faced Disney stars Lindsay Lohan and Hilary Duff, both beautiful and talented and destined for great things… and, for whatever reason, both totally in love with Aaron Carter.

Aaron Carter! Sure, he could beat Shaq and throw the most slammin’ G-rated soirees this side of Mickey’s House of Mouse (“Then walked in/The girl I’m crushin’/And a kid spilled juice/On my Mom’s new cushion”), but it’s hard to believe that this little dweeb was truly charming enough to win over two of the biggest tween stars of the ’00s . He’s no Nick Carter, is what I’m saying.

Here’s the short version of what happened: In a 2006 interview, Aaron explained that he and Hilary started dating on his 13th birthday — which makes their anniversary December 7, 2000. (A day that will live in infamy!) What was their relationship like? “We kissed, and we hugged, and we’d hold hands, and go to the movies,” he said. “I was actually dating her for like a year and a half.” Enter a certain red-headed Parent Trapper: “Then I just got a little bored, so I went and I started getting to know Lindsay.” But Carter’s tangled web doesn’t end there: “And then I didn’t want to do that anymore, so I got back with Hilary. And then I ended up cheating on Hilary with her best friend.” READ FULL STORY

Robert De Niro, Lindsay Lohan, and more lose a bet to Jimmy Fallon -- VIDEO

Ten years ago, if Jimmy Fallon told you he was going to host the Tonight Show, you’d likely respond to the Saturday Night Live player, “Yeah. In your dreams. Enjoy the Taxi premiere!”

But times have changed, and with Monday night’s debut for Fallon’s Tonight Show, it was time for the comedian to collect on a couple bets. “To my buddy who said I’d never host the Tonight Show — and you know who you are — you owe me a hundred bucks,” he declared during his monologue.

Cue Fallon’s buddies: Robert De Niro, Tina Fey, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lindsay Lohan, and many, many more. Watch below in EW’s late-night highlight video: READ FULL STORY

Lindsay Lohan hangs with fellow 'Mean Girls' alums: Sup, Kevin G?

The Mean Girls reunion continues! Last night, Lindsay Lohan was hanging out with Daniel Franzese and Rajiv Surendra — a.ka. Damian and Kevin G — according to her Instagram. Her caption on their group photos includes a hashtagged version of the forever great Mean Girls line “you can’t sit with us,” and also “#soquiche,” which must be what the kids are saying these days.

Franzese also posted the photo on his Instagram with a slew of relevant hashtags: “Whhhat!? North Shore Reunion continues!@lindsaylohan #RajivSurendra and @whatsupdanny #DamiansYearbooks#NorthShore10yrReunion #klangkarussell #DamnAfrica #ImissLizzyCaplan.” And yes, it has actually been 10 years since Mean Girls first changed our lives when it hit theaters in 2004.

Throwback Thursday: Lindsay Lohan covers 'Edge of Seventeen' and reminds us all of 2005

Just like the white winged dove sings a song just like she’s singing, so does Lindsay Lohan.

It’s easy to forget that once upon a time, Lindsay Lohan was not only an actress but also a singer — not only belting pop tunes in her family-friendly movies (“Ultimate” was really fun!), but also releasing two albums that gave us such songs as “Rumors” and the sob-fest “Confessions of A Broken Heart (Daughter to Father).” (Ugh. That video is still a knife through the heart.)

But often forgotten among those is a cover of the Stevie Nicks classic slow burner “Edge of Seventeen,” which Lohan recorded as part of her 2005 album A Little More Personal (Raw).  Happily, as of today, it’s forgotten no more! Lohan performed a karaoke version of the the song this week in New York City. TMZ  — which got the footage, naturally – reports the impromptu show was for a birthday party. (For New York Republican Party Finance Committee chairman Matthew Mellon, of all people.)

The video isn’t the best quality, but Lohan looks happy and sounds pretty good — which, given her history as the human embodiment of exhaustion,we’ll count as an entry in the ‘Win’ column. Is she testing the waters for a new album, perhaps? Or maybe we’ll be treated to a musical performance or two on Lohan’s upcoming OWN reality show, which premieres next month.

You go, Lindsay Lohan! Actress posts 'Mean Girls' reunion pic -- PHOTO


Four for you, Lindsay Lohan.

It’s exactly what you wanted, Internet. Mean Girls co-stars Lindsay Lohan and Daniel Franzese (DAMIAN!) met up for dinner this week, and Lohan posted the photographic evidence on Instagram, alongside the message “@whatsupdanny #soquiche #werknyc ❤.” Franzese regrammed the pic, alongside his own message: “Sexy #regram from @lindsaylohan a Classic NYC moment after an amazing dinner at #BodegaNegra You can’t sit with us!”

Franzese: Solid Mean Girls reference. Lohan: Stop trying to make quiche happen. It’s not going to happen.

Ready to feel old? It’s been nearly 10 years (!) since Mean Girls hit theaters and introduced you to two hours of quotes you’re still regularly using in conversation.

We just hope Damian finally got his pink shirt back.

'Life-Size' is getting a 'modern' update. Let's plan it!

Break out that 100-watt smile: Life-Size, the Lindsay Lohan/Tyra Banks-starring television movie, is getting a sequel. Wait, what?

Tyra Banks responded to a question about the reboot on Twitter over the weekend (rumors have been circulating since 2012), writing, “Tis true, Love” and then linking to a Digital Spy article in which she’s quoted as saying, “I have a meeting today to go over the script! I don’t think it’ll be out until probably 2015, but I’m guessing – it could be late 2014 or 2015. But it will be back – Life-Size will be back, better than ever…I’m under contract with Disney and I can’t talk about it at all, except that it’s coming. But it will be very different, very different. Very modern – a modern take.” (EW reached out to a rep for Disney, who didn’t return a request for comment.) READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Fallon and Lindsay Lohan ditch twerking for scrumping -- VIDEO

Looks like Jimmy and Lindsay are giving Miley a run for her money.

Making a surprise appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, America’s favorite red-head Lindsay Lohan joined Fallon on Thursday for a hilarious sketch on pop culture playing Stephanie Sullivan on a fake TeenNick show called “Ew!”

Sporting curly pigtails and a spiked fitted cap Lohan tapped into her inner teenybopper as Stephanie –catching up with her drool-braced-faced BFFLFR (that’s best friend forever for life for realsies) host Sara (that’s S-A-R-A, no h!) for a recap of their latest adventures.

After gushing over the One Direction: This Is Us movie and Harry Styles–making awkward kissy-faces, the two switched up the conversation to Miley’s new video, but when Stephanie was prompted by Sara to twerk, Stephanie was clearly was over it.

“Did you see the new Miley Cyrus video?” Sara asked. “We should do some twerking!”

“Ew! No, Twerking is so 2-0-1-3, said Stephanie. Nowadays it’s all about scrumping!”

So who do you think has the upper hand, Miley or Stephanie? Watch the two get down in the hilarious clip  below and decide: READ FULL STORY
