Miss any of The Big Jim and Anna Show this morning? Here's what you missed... in Cliff Note form.
Honda of Westport 7:40 Couple’s Court: Sibling Week
We wrapped up sibling week with Scott and Amy. Scott called and accused Amy of being a bad parent because she gives her 12-year-old son ADHD medication. Scott insists that ADHD is a fake disease and it’s her lack of parenting skills that are corrupt. She needs to control him. She says that doctors say he needs medication and she isn’t doing anything wrong. Ultimately the audience agreed with Amy. If the doctors are suggesting it, then the child needs it and Scott has no right to criticize his sister.

Daily Dish With Celebrity News:
Anne Hathaway almost drowned in Hawaii when a riptide pulled her underwater. Luckily a nearby surfer heard her screams and saved her. She did cut her foot badly and her husband *sucked (well, that’s what the media outlets are saying) the toe to stop it from bleeding. (Really?) Of course paparazzi were on hand to document the whole event… Hmmm… Would have been nice if maybe THEY ACTUALLY HELPED. Check out all the pics HERE.
Justin Bieber is at it again. Last night his neighbor called the police to report that he was egging his house. The neighbor says that the Biebs threw about 20 eggs and caught him outside his house. This isn’t the first time there’s been an altercation with this neighbor. Watch explicit video of the altercation HERE.
Is Lindsay Lohan really difficult to work with? All the sources say yes, and now Oprah does too. She says she didn’t believe all the hype about how difficult she was but witnessed it herself. She refused to film on production days, fought with producers. Her “sober coach” was asked about her sobriety during the recording and they said “Um. You know”… Which I assume means it was not good. More about Oprah's feelings towards Lindsay HERE.
Three People Having a Worst Week Than You
