Who: Lindsay Lohan
Fail: Lindsay Lohan did 5 hours in jail of what was supposed to be a 30 day sentence for violating her probation. However, she did a short bid because of prison overcrowding. This is like her 10th time in jail for 20 minutes, which is a win for her since nothing seems to stick. The California Corrections System fails for not handling their facilities properly. Get it together and give a Hollywood actress the same type of punishment that the average Jane would get!
Redemption: If Lindsay Lohan or any Hollywood actress actually serves the maximum sentence.
Who: Kim Kardashian
Fail: Pictures of Kim Kardashian on her soon-to-be ex-husband's doorstep in Minnesota surfaced earlier in the week and word was that the couple had been talking with the minister who married them in consideration of a possible reconciliation. Sounds nice but not only did Kardashian take a commercial flight, which screams photo op, but the paps mysteriously found their way to Minnesota--of all places--coincidentally when all this was happening. Riiiiight...
Redemption: The Kardashians need a media fast.
Who: Penn State Student Protestors
Fail: Some people are slaves to sports. We've seen folks punch holes into the wall, deny sex, dump deep buckets of icy water on coaches and now defend immorality all due to sports. After hearing about Joe Paterno's firing, Penn State stans went ham defending a man who defended an incessant child molester. The reaction was uproarious and ridiculous with students causing a scene outside their school steps... most not even caring about the Paterno's ousting but just following their undergraduate sheperds in on-campus shenanigans. The point? Absolutely nothing.
Redemption: An obligatory float at next year's Pride parade.
Who: Lil Kim
Fail: The former Queen Bee continues to tarnish a legacy that Biggie helped create (RIP). Lil Kim refuses to let her ongoing beef with Nicki Minaj die down. Feeling like she was disrespected by the Barbz' verse on Birdman's "Y.U. Mad," Lil Kim fired back with a couple lackluster rebuttals on a new freestyle. “This Lil’ Kim clone/ Ooh I can’t do it/ Seen this bitch on the awards/ Ooh she look stupid.”
Redemption: Only Diddy can save her at this point
Who: Ashton Kutcher
Fail: Dude, where's my newspaper? Ashton Kutcher came under fire this week after he sent out a tweet defending PennState football coach Joe Paterno, who was fired this week for failing to report sexual abuse he witnessed between his assistant coach Mike McQueary and a young student.
Redemption: It's Dark and Hell Is Hot.
Who: Herman Cain
Fail: Once known for his work as CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas and board member for a slew of major companies, including Nabisco, Godfather's Pizza and Whirlpool, Cain is currently one of the most controversial Republican presidential nominees. The 65-year-old has recently been slapped with allegations of sexual misconduct. According to the latest claims, Cain reportedly placed his hand up an employees skirt while CEO of the National Restaurant Association.
Redemption: Depends on what side you stand on … Bill Clinton may even give him a high-five.
