Tuning In to TV
Lohan tapes segment for ‘Tonight Show’
The actress says she is still set to play John Gotti Jr.’s wife, Kim, in the upcoming “Gotti: Three Generations” despite her legal woes. On Friday, she was sentenced to 120 days in jail and 480 hours of community service for violating probation by allegedly swiping a necklace from a Venice, Calif., jewelry shop.
She said she thought the sentence was “shocking” and it left her “kind of numb,” according to the Associated Press.
She reportedly received a standing ovation from the studio audience.
‘Glee’ gets big welcome in Big Apple
Talk about a cool class trip.
The cast of “Glee” is in New York City this week to film its season two finale, and Mayor Michael Bloomberg welcomed the stars of the Fox show with a news conference outside the Gershwin Theater, one of its filming locations, the Associated Press reports.
“Mayors don’t get a lot of time to watch television, so I don’t know much about this season’s plot, but actually it would be great to see what happens with Finn and Rachel,” joked Mr. Bloomberg, referring to two of the show’s characters who are in an on-again, off-again romantic relationship.
In the final episode of the season, the students will go to New York for a national glee club competition. The show is to film all week in the city at landmarks such as Central Park and Lincoln Center.
“We’ve been filming ‘Glee’ in Los Angeles for two years. We’ve never met the mayor there,” said one of the show’s executive producers, Dante Di Loreto.
The “Glee” season finale will air at 9 p.m. May 24.
