Troubled star of Mean Girls (and some other movies, we guess) Lindsay Lohan was snapped leaving the DREAM Hotel in Manhattan yesterday, wielding the very same ultra-rare, ultra-expensive Blackberry that Beyonce has. Oh no she didn’t!
The phone is a special edition device designed by Porsche, but with the functionality of the Blackberry Bold 9900/9930. Sorry, guys: It’s infinitely more swag than the typical fare you can snag at your local Verizon store.
The phone favored by Ms. Lohan and Queen Bey costs a pretty penny for peasants like us: a Blackberry Bold P’9981 will run you $2,145. So, probably none for Gretchen Wieners bye.

If anyone needed confirmation that the nouveau-riche billionaires of the tech bubble might join actors and hoteliers as a the latest subset of rakish cads (“Have something to prove, ISO arm candy”), look no further than this rumor on Gawker.
“We heard a wild tale that Parker and Lohan had recently gotten coked up together; one version of the story even had Parker’s jealous fiancée battering down a door. Parker’s spokesman flatly denied the gossip. But Lohan was among the VIPs invited to enjoy bowls of caviar at Parker’s sumptuous rental castle after Coachella this year. And Parker’s spokesman didn’t deny that Lohan partied on all three nights of the Palm Desert soirée.”
We have no idea there’s truth to the rumor, but to support the gossip-mongering, Ryan Tate reports that “in addition to Lohan, Parker’s fiancée Alexandra and Lohan’s sister and brother, Ali and Michael, also made appearances at the party palace.”
Post-Social Network, Mr. Parker did his best to distance himself from Justin Timberlake’s celluloid depiction of a party-hardy modelizer.
