Taylor headed to the BIG SCREEN. Remember all the talk earlier this month when Taylor Swift was photographed hanging out with hunky Australian actor Brenton Thwaites at the Toronto Film Festival? We can't say that Taylor and Brenton are dating, but we can confirm they'll be working together. Taylor has signed on to join the cast of The Giver, according to Page Six. Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges and yes, Brenton, are already attached to the project with True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard in talks to join, too.
Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett's car accident in the spring was more serious than originally reported. E! News says Kendra suffered a "minor stroke" during the head-on collision. Doctors made the discovery through CT scans just days after the incident. But the former Playboy model is said to have recovered. A source says, "They told her to take it easy and chill out for a couple of weeks, but she is fine. There is nothing to worry about."
LINDSAY LOHAN is working on a reality show for OPRAH WINFREY'S OWN channel . . . but it sounds like she was up to her old tricks. Until Oprah brought the hammer down. At the beginning of the project, Lindsay was being difficult . . . no-showing, being a diva and that kind of thing. So Oprah went to see her at her mom DINA'S house on Long Island, and she got a bunch of excuses. But Oprah wasn't having it. She told Lindsay to shape up or she could kiss her $2 MILLION paycheck goodbye. That was about a month ago, and things have been running smoothly ever since.
