GivenÂ Lindsay Lohan‘s brand new reality show onÂ Oprah‘s OWN Network, I assumed she would be in the news for a brand new reason–you know, something other than ignoring court orders, ditching rehab and being arrested (sort of) for DUIs. The good news: I was right! The bad news: It wasn’t because of her recovery. Remember that sex list LiLo supposedly wrote for some “friends” who then sold it toÂ In Touch?Â Well, there were some more names unblurred, and people are freaking the eff out about them.
In last week’s LiLo ListGate Update (please let that stupid scandal name pick up somehow), we saw a range of famous names on her sex list, includingÂ Justin Timberlake,Â Colin Farrell,Â Evan Peters, Adam Levine,Â Zac Efron (whose reaction to his naming was excellent)Â and some others. Being the gracious gossip mag that it is,Â In TouchÂ has added a few more names to the “exposed” list:
In the new issue ofÂ In Touch …Â more shocking names from the list are revealed, includingÂ Orlando Bloom,Â Ryan Phillippe,Â Benicio Del ToroÂ andÂ topping the list:Â Ashton Kutcher. â€śLindsay loves being linked to good-looking, famous, successful men,â€ť a source close to the actress tellsÂ In Touch.
I’m sorry, does anybodyÂ not love being linked to attractive ambitious people? Regardless, considering most of these names were never revealed, I actually think the “being linked” observation is a stretch; if she loved being publicly attached to all these folks, wouldn’t she have made them public prior to now?
Anyway, the source claims it was “her personal conquest listâ€ť that she was using simply to “impress her friends” then tossed aside, raising my skepticism level a little higher. Wouldn’t a seasoned heavy-hitter in the league of tabloids know better than to do that?
Hey, if LiLo banged all these people, good for her. If I became famous, I would probably ask Ryan Phillippe out to Dave & Buster’s atÂ least four times a year. That said, I feel like this will wind up being one of those things where everyone gets all self-righteous, calls her a whore and tells her to “cut the bullshit” unironically for three months straight.
But hey, let’s be honest: is it really unexpected that celebrities are all hooking up each other? Yes, it sucks if those who were married opted to sleep with somebodyÂ while married (providing their relationship is monogamous, even), but that’s not really the responsibility of the single party.Â We’re not necessarily always fans of LiLo, but that doesn’t mean we want there to be some sort of angry backlash that smacks her in the face with a bunch of slut-shaming. Here’s hoping that doesn’t happen.
