Lindsay Lohan Mocks Her Own Terrible Driving In Super Bowl Spot
Lindsay Lohan may have multiple DUIs on her record, but at least she's not above poking fun at them. And yesterday's Esurance Super Bowl commercial proved it.

In the ad, Lohan careens a car into the sidewalk in front of a school, nearly plowing into two small children.

"Your mom's a terrible driver," deadpans Kid #1.

"That's not my mom," replies Kid #2, after Lohan rolls down the window and tries to coerce the two children into the car.

But Lohan's kinda-sorta like his mom, as she's young-ish and with a lot of time on the road. Which is the gist of the ad- some insurance companies might...

Drunk Driver Slams Into Megan Fox And Brian Austin Green, Neithe
Yesterday was a scary night for "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" star Megan Fox and her husband Brian Austin Green (remember him from Beverly Hills, 90210?).

Luckily, no one was hurt- neither Fox nor hubbie Green, nor their children Noah and Bodhi, who were luckily not in the car at the time. The other driver wasn't hurt either, but he was swiftly a...
