Lindsay Lohan’s Lawyer Heads to Courthouse Over Her Club Fight: ‘It May Be That This Case Does Not Move Forward’ (VIDEO)

Lindsay Lohan's lawyer

Lindsay Lohan did not show up in a New York court Monday for the latest round of her assault case.

The actress was not required to appear, as the New York County’s District Attorney’s Office has yet to file criminal charges or an accusatory document in connection to her altercation at a NYC nightclub in November. Lohan’s lawyer, Mark Jay Heller, was on hand at the courthouse, where he said Lohan may not have to a face a judge in the case after all.

“It has been determined that the criminal prosecution of Lindsay Lohan is not ready to proceed at this time,” he told reporters after signing paperwork on Lohan’s behalf in a private room. “It may very well be that this case does not move forward. In fact, I predicted when I had Lindsay released from the precinct that she would be totally exonerated. It’s my opinion that this case will ultimately will be declined from prosecution, but it will be several weeks before the district attorney makes that decision.”

And Heller isn’t the only person who is holding out hope for Lohan. “Ironically, a psychic fortuneteller has predicted that the year 2013 will be an extremely lucky year for Lindsay Lohan,” he added. “With her spectacular talent and great looks, I believe that all she really needs is a little bit of luck.”

Though no criminal complaint has been drawn up, the district attorney’s investigation is still ongoing.

“My office has met and communicated extensively with the New York County’s District Attorney’s Office, and we have brought some very credible evidence and testimony to their attention,” Heller explained. “We have come forward with a witness who was able to share her personal assessment and witnessing of the event that caused the arrest.”

Lohan was charged on Nov. 29 with third-degree misdemeanor assault after allegedly punching Florida fortune-teller Tiffany Ava Mitchell at Avenue, a nightclub in NYC’s Chelsea neighborhood. Mitchell — who did not seek medical attention — has hired Hollywood-savvy lawyer Gloria Allred to represent her in the court case.

That same day, Lohan was charged with in connection to a June car crash on the Pacific Coast Highway. She faces three separate misdemeanors: giving false information to a police officer, obstructing or resisting a police officer in the performance of his duty, and reckless driving. Those criminal charges led judge Jane Godfrey to revoke the Liz & Dick star’s probation on Dec. 12.

Now the judge has set a hearing date for Jan. 15, when it will be decided if the embattled actress’ actions amount to a probation violation that warrants jail time. Lohan — who was on probation after pleading no contest in 2011 to charges of stealing a $2,500 necklace from an L.A.-area jeweler — faces up to 245 days behind bars, if the judge seeks maximum punishment.

Lohan’s bi-coastal legal woes are just the latest in her long-running rap sheet. Since 2005, she has been cited for car crashes, arrested for DUIs, sentences to rehabilitation stints, placed on probation, and thrown in the slammer seemingly countless times.

A looming court date in New York can’t stop Lindsay Lohan from her partying ways across the Atlantic.

The 26-year-old actress kicked off her weekend by partying into the wee hours of Saturday morning at the trendy Mandarin Oriental Hotel. According to the Daily Mail, the Liz & Dick star later headed to another club, where she partied with friends until 5 AM.

Lohan turned heads during her night out — but it wasn’t for her all-black outfit, which included knee-high platform boots.

While making her way to a nearby car, the star hid behind part of her coat, only to reveal what appears to be a bruised left arm, complete with purple and yellow marks.

Lohan is due stateside on Monday for a court appearance related to an alleged nightclub brawl from November. At the time, the Mean Girls actress was arrested and charged with third-degree misdemeanor assault after allegedly punching a fellow patron at Manhattan hot spot Avenue.

Lohan also has a probation hearing scheduled for Jan. 15 on the west coast, in relation to a separate case.

How do you think Lindsay Lohan will fare in 2013? Weigh in below.

10 New Year’s Resolutions for TV Networks

Admit it: As loyal a TV fan as you are, there were moments in 2012 where you felt like flinging a brick at your flatscreen in frustration. Favorite shows and actors went off the air or ended their seasons too soon, and networks tried to sell you shows and stars and movies you’d rather not watch.

Behind all these irritants were decisions by network and cable executives meant to draw viewers and improve ratings, but which often backfired and did the opposite.

If your favorite channels want to make amends and do better in the coming year, they should adopt Celebuzz’s list of 10 New Year’s Resolutions for TV Networks, which they can read in handy gallery form at the top of this article.

For instance, we all spent a lot of time in 2012 immersed in the backstage dramas among high-profile celebrity judges on talent competitions like NBC’s The Voice and Fox’s  The X-Factor and American Idol, and not enough time on the contestants. We’d like to see the TV networks resolve to put the focus back where it belongs, on the on-stage drama. On the other hand, we didn’t spend as much time as we’d like immersed in the scripted dramas we love on cable like AMC’s Walking Dead and Showtime’s Homeland. We’d like to see the programmers resolve to lengthen the too-brief seasons of those shows.

Read the rest of the list yourself and decide whether those changes would be enough to create a better year of TV viewing for you, or whether you have additional resolutions you’d like to suggest, in the comments below.

2012 Year in Review: Top 10 Celebrity Newsmakers (PHOTOS)

This past year you’ve been bombarded by emails, overwhelmed with Twitter posts, and called-out in Facebook comments for your stance on Miley’s new ‘do.

You just managed to finish digging through the hefty pile of holiday news alerts only to find that Rihanna and Chris Brown are back together — again.

But you love it. Because a 24/7 news cycle makes the world go ‘round. And none of it would be possible without these celebrity newsmakers.

While many stars graced our headlines this year, it took a special few to flat-out take up real estate.

Kristen Stewart, for one, caused social media networks to implode when she cheated on her oh-so-dreamy Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. She proceeded to cause an even bigger stir after reuniting with R.Patz, dressed in an I don’t give a you-know-what attitude only the biggest of newsmakers knows how to flaunt.

Then there was Kate Middleton, who caused a frenzy of royal proportions when topless photos surfaced of the future queen. Luckily for the Duchess, word of a fetal heir was enough to stifle the outrage and ignite baby fever.

And who could forget Lindsay Lohan? In one year, the troubled starlet was arrested, hit someone with her car, starred in Liz & Dick, and became indebted to the IRS.

It sounds like these guys are ready to ring in 2013.

Without further adieu, we give you the top 10 celebrity newsmakers of 2012—in no particular order.

Lindsay Lohan Opens Up Her ‘Safe’ House to Bravo’s ‘Million Dollar Decorators’ (VIDEO)

We know you’ve just been chomping at the bit for more Lindsay Lohan after that tour de force performance on Lifetime’s Liz & Dick.

The actress opened up her Hollywood Hills home on Bravo’s big budget design show Million Dollar Decorators, which airs Lohan’s episode on New Years Day Tuesday at 10 PM.

“I’ve kind of gone through phases,” the 26-year-old tells designer Kathryn Ireland about moving to the secluded spot in The Hills.

“I think I needed to move to Venice to be kind of out of West Hollywood. I want to be by the beach and the water,” she explains. “And it’s too far, first of all, and it wasn’t safe. My house was on the street. So, this is like a home that I want to make my own.”

Ireland, whose celebrity clients include Steve Martin, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and David Mamet, starts with a $250 million dollar budget to achieve a French cottage-style home for Lohan.

“I think this house is a fresh start for Lindsay,” Ireland, whose sons have a bit of a laugh over Lohan’s legal troubles, says. “I think my designs for her, I really have to bear that in mind: make her feel secure and also really ground her.”

Watch the first five minutes of Lohan’s Million Dollar Decorators episode below.

‘Showbiz Tonight’ and Celebuzz Countdown The Top 5 Buzzmakers of the Year (VIDEO)

As 2012 comes to an end, Showbiz Tonight’s AJ Hammer looks back at the top 5 buzzmakers of the year, exclusively for Celebuzz.

#5– Taylor Swift – The country/pop singer returned to musical chart dominance with her hit “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” And, her chief songwriting inspiration – relationships – kept her in the tabloids all year, especially her summer flings with Connor Kennedy and One Direction’s Harry Styles.

#4 – Madonna vs Lady Gaga – The feud between the two divas reached a fever pitch this year as Gaga was continually accused of being a Madonna copycat. Madonna called Gaga’s music ‘reductive’ while Gaga not-so-subtly criticized Madonna on stage.

#3 – Nicki Minaj – She made headlines for becoming a judge on American Idol, but it was her feud with fellow Idol judge, Mariah Carey, that had everyone buzzing this year. Nicki claimed Mariah didn’t want another female judge on the show and Mariah alleged that Nicki threatened to shoot her. It’s going to be an interesting season, the show premieres on FOX on Jan. 16.

#2 – Lindsay Lohan – 2012 marked the return of Lindsay Lohan as an actress, at least on the small screen. She landed the role, and later bombed it, as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s Liz & Dick, but her biggest feat of the year was being charged with four crimes on two coasts on the same day.

#1 – Rihanna & Chris Brown – The couple reunited three years after Chris put Rihanna in the hospital after a nasty argument. Despite being criticized by everyone around the world, the two flaunted their rekindled romance in 2012.

Tune in to Showbiz Tonight Mon. – Thurs. at 11pm ET/PT on HLN. And be sure to check back every week for AJ Hammer’s countdown of the top 5 buzzmakers right here on Celebuzz.
