More trouble in store

Troubled star Lindsay Lohan seems to be sinking into deeper trouble, as her probation has been extended for an extra year in the drunk-driving case.
The Just My Luck star appeared for a hearing at Beverly Hills recently, where the judge slapped an extra year on Lohan’s existing three-year probation sentence.
Wearing a white sport-coat, black pants and her hair in a bun, Lohan walked into the courtroom holding her attorney’s hand for a progress review of her two driving under influence (DUI) cases.
The 23-year-old star was summoned as she had failed to notify the instructors of an alcohol education class, which she attends as part of her probation, that she would be leaving the country for work.
“I ordered you into court today because I wanted to speak to you directly. I don’t want to get any more notices again (that you might be in violation of probation), no warrants, where you are thumbing your nose at the court,” said judge Revel at the hearing.
 He also ordered Lohan to get prior court approval the next time she leaves Los Angeles for work, and warned that any failure to comply with the terms of her probation could lead to jail time.
Lohan’s only words in court were “yes” when asked if she understood all the proceedings.
 A progress review hearing was set for December 15. Lohan was sentenced to the probation term following her second DUI conviction in August 2007.

An affair to remember

The world’s longest running film Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaenge (DDLJ) turned 14 at Maratha Mandir theatre in Mumbai. A visit to the theatre is like stepping back in time. A balcony ticket costs Rs 22, a snack costs Rs 10 and popcorn still comes in little plastic packets. There is just one screen at Maratha Mandir and two ticket windows — balcony and stall. DDLJ has been running at the 11.30 am slot for the past 14 years. This just proves that DDLJ, the marvellous Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol starrer, will never be too old for the masses.

‘I'm a foodie’

Pop star Christina Aguilera is a self-confessed foodie, who exercises her body only because she wants to enjoy her favourite meals.
“I have felt the pressure to feel better. I work out and try to eat as well as I can. But that’s probably why I do work out, because I’m such a foodie. I love food,” said Aguilera.
 Taking her obsession with food to a next level, the Beautiful singer said that she wants to reduce her workload to be able to learn cooking once her son gets older and craves for home-cooked food.
“I don’t have the time to cook. My mom is a yummy cook and I love the idea of my son craving home-cooked food. When he gets older I will make time. I want to learn how to cook really yummy things,” said Aguilera.
The 28-year-old star is planning to change her hectic lifestyle to be able to spend more time at home preparing meals for her husband, music executive Jordan Bratman, and their 21-month-old son Max.
