There's been much speculation over whether LINDSAY LOHAN made up her miscarriage story for publicity and/or to gain sympathy. However, if Lindsay did make it up, she could be committing perjury. Lindsay is involved in a $5 million lawsuit over her clothing line 6126. She was given a reprieve from responding to the lawsuit while she was in rehab last year but, when she failed to respond after her release, Lindsay lost the case by default. Lindsay has now responded to the suit saying that she's been overwhelmed since leaving rehab and dealing with her sobriety and a miscarriage. Should it turn out that Lindsay lied in the legal documents under penalty of perjury, she could face jail time.

Crosby, Texas high school football player Mike Ramirez spent most of the season riding the bench, but it didn't stop him from getting a prom date with a cheerleader. No, it wasn't a cheerleader at his high school, but a Houston Texans cheerleader named Caitlyn. It began when Caitlyn followed him on a "Twitter following spree" and he sent her a message saying, "If I get 10,000 re-tweets will you go to prom with me...you will get asked in a cute way!" She said 'yes' and he got the required re-tweets. The two met on Saturday night at an upscale Latin American restaurant for dinner. Ramirez arrived with his mom and eight friends before Caitlyn showed up in a limo with six other Texans cheerleaders in uniform to support her. The press was there and when asked if there would be a second date, Michael indicated that he was hopeful for one. Michael can probably dream on about that as the day after the prom he was back working at McDonald's.

Some household projects should be left to professionals. Take it from Idaho's 48-year-old John Martin Novack, who tried to cure his sinus problem. By the time John's DIY project was over he was sobering up in a hospital and telling doctors how he stuck two straws up his nasal cavities and attempted to break his own nose by slamming a door on it. After threatening her with a gun, his sister called police, who arrived to find John barricaded in a room, on a bed, too drunk to get up. John said he was going to urinate on the officers, but defecated instead. No word on whether that was before or after he confessed to one deputy, that the medical procedure required him to drink for a week straight, which he did.
