  • Nothing gets Anderson, CA KFC employees more turned on than kitchen sinks. Good thing they took provocative photos with the sinks so we can see how they celebrate.
  • A Huntington Beach alcohol and drug rehab facility has offered to take in Amy Winehouse and her Blake for free. They promise protection from the paparazzi and her own recording studio as well. Sounds like she'd be on board if they weren't so strict about drugs and alcohol.
  • We've been giving you a few options to eat on the cheap during these tough times, but here's another - Lobster! That's right, our date's favorite entree is said to be falling in price due to Canadians. Actually, Canadian processing plants that have shut down thus creating excess, blah, blah, just go out and buy one before the prices go back up.
  • A 15-year-old San Pedro High School girl looking for attention lied about the claim that two men tried to drag her into a truck. The teen said she was just upset with her mother. Why can't kids just swear and yell at their parents when they're upset like we learned on the Osbourne's?
  • Lindsay Lohan's girlfriend hired a lawyer to keep rumors out of the press? And then she sued him for sloppy work and abandoning her when she wouldn't pay an exorbitant bill? And he's counter suing to recover fees? At least she's doing a great job of keeping out of the press... hehe.
  • Twitter peeps, in addition to following LAist, why not follow Mayor Villaraigosa.
  • KB Toys joined the list of Linens N Things and Steve & Barry's in seeking Chapter 11 protection today. The children of the nation are devastated... not to mention their parents who work at KB.
  • A Sherman Oaks lawyer and his posse were arrested on suspicion of running a $1 million fraud ring today. Hamid Taghizadeh, 46, is said to be the mastermind charged with 86 felony counts, including filing false and fraudulent claims, receiving or offering compensation for referrals, insurance fraud, grand theft of personal property and failure to file income tax returns. Makes you think twice about taking a little cash from an insurance claim doesn't it...
