2008/2007: This Week In Gossip

[Gallery not found]

Let’s head down memory lane, because looking backwards is comfortable and not as painful as wondering how I’m going to pay my taxes this year.

If we just look back one year, we can see how far our little Britney Spears has come on the road to recovery. On Wednesday, January 2nd 2008, Britney Spears was told to give her kids back to Kevin Federline. She didn’t. Instead, she locked herself in the bathroom, where medical personnel had to come get her and forcibly remove her from her own home.

You might remember this because it was on CNN. They interrupted coverage. I think I was getting a haircut at the time…

Also this week in 2008, Lindsay Lohan was in trouble for sipping some champagne on New Year’s Eve in Italy.

In comparison, one of these girls has their act together thanks to their father, and the other one just learned how to drink in secret and give really good head to the same sex.

A year before that, in the first week of January 2007, Todd declared “Lindsay Lohan Will Be Dead Soon” because she was calling in “sick” during her new and exciting film: I Know Who Killed Me, which I had thankfully forgotten about until I wrote that sentence.

She was looking kind of hot when she was all brunette, though:

Also in 2007, Donald Trump and Rosie O’Donnell were at each other’s throats and Ashlee Simpson lost her top at the beach.

Why couldn’t this week have been that exciting and nipple-ful?
