Dina Lohan Calls the Cops Over an Ice Cream Cake, and Other Hopeless EmbarrassmentsS

Stage mom extraordinaire Dina Lohan gets into a pissing match over high-fat freebies. Lindsay's alcohol-monitoring bracelet's alert a false alarm. David Spade bags improbable hottie Padma Lakshmi. TGIFriday gossip.

  • This story speaks volumes about the Lohan clan: Dina Lohan called the cops on a store clerk at Carvel icecream (the poor man's Dairy Queen) who tried to deny her a freebie. Apparently daughter Lindsay has a special "Carvel Black Card," which is a promotion Carvel did last year to try to get famous people to eat their clown-themed ice cream cakes. Obviously, none of them ever do, including Lindsay who gave the card to Dina, who used it so frequently that her local Long Island Carvel outlet tried to confiscate the card—only to have Dina call the cops on them for stealing her property. A confused policeman made the clerk give her card back, no word whether Dina had to pay for the cheap cake she was there to pick up. (Those things cost, what, $5?) Carvel issued a statement this morning saying "the Lohan family has been abusing the card": "This is an unfortunate situation where certain people feel entitled to use a celebrity's name for their own purposes." Actually, this is The Beverly Hillbillies meets reality television meets Long Island. [P6, CarvelIceCreamNewsroom, image from an unrelated court date via Splash]

  • In happier news, Lindsay's alcohol-use snafu was a false alarm, after all: A court-ordered urine sample taking hours after LiLo's booze-sniffing SCRAM went off showed her to be sober and clean. More evidence that SCRAM bracelets are medieval pieces of shit. [TMZ, E!]

  • Meanwhile, Jeremy's Palm Springs neighbor has a weird story about Jeremy begging for money or work washing cars. Hard times for Mr. London. [Radar]
