Michael Richards who played Kramer on Seinfeld had a career ending tirade six years ago when we flipped out on an African-American audience member who was heckling him. Richards appeared with Jerry Seinfeld on an episode of Jerry's web series and discussed the incident. He admits to handling things that night horribly and says he should have just admitted to the heckler that he was right, he wasn’t funny. Richards has kept very quiet since that night and has been virtually shunned by Hollywood since then. This probably won’t change things too much, but having Jerry Seinfeld on your side, doesn’t hurt.
Lindsay Lohan made it in the news again yesterday, but its not because she is a good-deed-doer! She apparently got into an altercation concerning some pictures taken on a cell phone by a guy that actually works for Illinois Congressmen John Shimkus. She invited this guy and some other’s to party with her then apparently didn’t like the idea that he took pictures of their fun. He was arrested, but the charges were dropped when not enough evidence was found to hold the guy. Even though Lohan’s publicist said Lindsay suffered some injuries, but not bad enough to warrant a hospital visit.
