It's apparently very hard for starlets to learn their lessons these days.
So before they make the same mistake thrice, we've taken the liberty of pointing out their most glaring flaws right here:
THAR SHE GOES: Just when we think she's in, they pull her back out! Lindsay Lohan's attorney earned her paycheck Friday, getting a judge to overturn ASAP the ruling that meant to stick Lindsay in the slammer for 30 days with nothing to do but watch her roots grow out while waiting for her Oct. 22 probation hearing. Instead, LiLo paid $300,000 and must stay out of bars, avoid drugs and the people who use them, and be willing to submit to a search at any time. All in the hope that she's not just going to be shipped back for another 30 days a month from now. Next stop, rehab?
SAYONARA: Japan decided it had no use for Paris Hilton if she was going to be that way and refused to stamp her passport, so the plea deal-accepting scenester scrapped plans to tour Asia in the name of fashion.
SHOCKER: Guess what?! Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler are the new judges on American Idol! Randy Jackson has prepared dawg collars for them and everything. Boy, we sure didn't see this one coming. Like, whoa.
SWEEPING THE CLEAVAGE AWAY: Elmo thinks she's pretty, but the overzealous children's programming police objected to Katy Perry's barely there hint of breast in the costume she wore for a "Hot n Cold" parody with the pitchy red Muppet. So while it's a hit on YouTube, it won't be brought to you by the W.M. Keck Foundation anytime soon. Unlike True Mud, which is being served straight up.
STRETCHED TOO THIN: Already suffering on a painful knee, David Hasselhoff was the first celeb booted from Dancing With the Stars. But oh how the viewers drank it up, giving the surprisingly promising Bristol Palin a bigger audience than her mom gets on Fox News. Meanwhile, we're hoping Jennifer Grey dances to a song from Dirty Dancing every week.

DE TO DE: Portia de Rossi is now Portia DeGeneres.
UNDER THE KNIFE: Bret Michaels will have surgery to repair the hole in his heart. Which sounds like a metaphor, but isn't.
UNREAL, HOUSEWIVES: Danielle Staub's ex-husband has a twisted sense of karmic justice. Maybe he's never watched one of those scary cartel-involving eps of Law & Order...Tamra Barney's estranged husband was busted after she called the cops on him...Teresa Giudice's hubby Joe jailed for driving infraction.
