December 12: Lindsay Lohan's continued legal problems
After legal problems stalled her career, 2012 was supposed to be a comeback year for Lindsay Lohan. She posed for Playboy, hosted "Saturday Night Live" and starred in the Lifetime movie "Liz & Dick." But the negative reviews she received for both the SNL gig and her Elizabeth Taylor portrayal were the least of her wories. By the end of the year, she had her probation from a highly-publicized 2011 jewelry theft case revoked due to to her alleged involvement in a car crash with a dump truck that left her Porsche totaled in June. A Jan. 15 hearing will determine whether the 26-year-old actress goes to jail. The year also saw her arrested in September for allegedly fleeing after hitting a man with her car in New York City, although the charge was later dropped, and again in late November for assault after allegedly punching a women in the face at a New York nightclub.
