UPTON MAY GO TO PROM WITH HIGH SCHOOLER
A high school senior who invited Kate Upton to be his prom date may get his wish. Earlier this week, Jake Davidson posted a video on YouTube asking the 20-year-old Sports Illustrated swimsuit model to be his date to the May 23rd event. “Kate, great moments are born from great opportunity,” he said. “And that is what you have here today. A chance to make a nice guy’s senior year the best ever.” After seeing the video, Kate tweeted to Jake, “You can call me Katie if you want to,” adding, “How could I turn down that video! I’ll check my schedule ;)” But it didn’t stop there. On Wednesday, Jake appeared on Today and was surprised when during his interview, hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb revealed that Upton was on the phone and wanted to talk to him. She called the video “hilarious” and “creative” and again reiterated that if her schedule was free she’d love to be his date.
LINDSAY DEAL IN JEOPARDY
It sounds like Lindsay Lohan’s plea deal from earlier this week may be in jeopardy. According to TMZ, the deal, in which Lindsay agreed to spend 90 days in a lockdown rehab facility in New York, may be yanked because New York doesn’t have any lockdown facilities. An official from the New York State agency that regulates rehab centers says lockdown rehab doesn’t exist in the Big Apple. In fact, TMZ called numerous rehabs and all of them said they do not force patients to stay. Law enforcement sources say the deal was offered only after Lindsay’s lawyer Mark Heller assured them such facilities existed. Prosecutors are said to be checking to see if Heller was lying and if that’s the case Lindsay may wind up in jail. Said one source, "The sentence was actually 90 days in custody, and lockdown rehab would satisfy that. If there's no such thing, then she'll go to jail for 90 days."
JON HAMM’S WARDROBE PROBLEM
The New York Daily News is reporting that Mad Men’s 60s style clothing has become a big problem for star Jon Hamm. Seems a network exec has been forced to ask Jon to wear underwear while shooting scenes because he’s so well-endowed it’s become an issue on set. “The pants are very tight and leave little to the imagination,” a source tells the paper. “Jon’s impressive anatomy is so distracting that they politely insisted on underwear.” This isn’t the first time Jon’s anatomy has proved to be a problem. An insider reports that during seasons one and two the network’s marketing team was forced to Photoshop promotional material in order to hide his package. Said the insider, “Everyone was concerned about too much Christina Hendricks boob, but it’s Jon that has the most to show. It’s a good problem to have.” Of course, anyone who’s trolled the internet has probably seen pics of Jon going commando walking the streets of New York. A rep for Hamm calls the story “ridiculous and not really funny at all.” The new season of Mad Men kicks off Sunday, April 7th.

"Khloe is my friend. She is like a sister. We have never and will never be sleeping together. Lamar is my homie and her husband and I wish people wouldn’t spread such false rumors."
