Friday gossip roundup: Lindsay Lohan ‘fine’ after being found unconscious

Lindsay Lohan visits "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" at Rockefeller Center on March 1, 2012 in New York City.

Actress Lindsay Lohan was treated for exhaustion and dehydration by paramedics who rushed to her hotel room on Friday, but she is “fine,” her spokesman said. “Producers were concerned when she did not come out of her room and called paramedics as a precaution. Lindsay was examined and is fine, but did suffer some exhaustion and dehydration,” her spokesman Steve Honig said in a statement. “Lindsay was never taken to a hospital; reports to the contrary are false. She is resting now and is hoping to be back on set later this afternoon,” Honig said. Earlier, a local ABC news channel in Los Angeles reported that Lohan had been found unconscious and rushed to a hospital.

“American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest is considering a bid to buy Dick Clark Productions, the company founded by the late TV icon and Seacrest’s mentor, people with knowledge of the matter said. Ryan Seacrest Media is among the potential bidders who have requested information from Raine Group, which was retained by Dick Clark Productions to run a possible sale. A Seacrest spokeswoman had no comment.

Singer Nicole Scherzinger has been named as a judge on the British version of ratings juggernaut “The X Factor”, less than six months after being fired from the U.S. edition of the TV show. The 33-year-old American is replacing compatriot Kelly Rowland, and joins Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow and Tulisa Contostavlos, all of whom appeared last season. “I can’t wait to see what talent the UK has to offer and to help inspire and bring out the best in these artists,” the former Pussycat Dolls singer said on Friday on the official website of the hit show.

Thailand’s government has hit out at pop sensation Lady Gaga for a second time in as many weeks by filing a police complaint over the singer’s “offensive” use of its national flag during her sellout concert last month. The Culture Ministry said Gaga’s use of the flag, tied to the back of a motorcycle while dressed in provocative outfit, was “inappropriate” and disrespectful to its people, a ministry official told Reuters, requesting anonymity because she was not authorized to speak to the media. Lady Gaga performed before 50,000 fans in Bangkok on May 25 as part of a world tour that caused controversy in the Philippines and South Korea and prompted organizers to cancel her show in Indonesia after Islamic groups objected to her “vulgar” style.

Bristol Palin says she is just a “grounded, normal mom”, and is hoping her new reality TV show will prove it. “Life’s a Tripp”, which premieres on the Lifetime channel on Tuesday, June 19, is being promoted as an inside look at the life of “America’s most famous teen mom” in the face of intense media scrutiny. The show follows the eldest daughter of polarizing conservative politician Sarah Palin as she embarks on her latest adventure – a move from her Wasilla, Alaska hometown to a Los Angeles mansion owned by a family friend, and back again – along with her young son Tripp. “People are going to see the real Bristol in this show,” Palin, now 21, told the “Good Morning America” TV news and chat show. “I’m just a grounded, normal mom.”
