A Los Angeles judge on Wednesday revoked LiLo's probation from her 2011 necklace theft case after the actor was charged with three misdemeanor counts stemming from a June reckless driving case.

THERE'S MORE reason than usual to keep politics off the Thanksgiving menu this year: Even if every member of your family is thankful for the re-election of President Obama, the spirit of the holiday doesn't extend to gloating, whatever MSNBC pundits believe. Grousing? Even less festive. Fox News will be there on Friday. So what's left on the table beyond football? Television. Everyone watches TV, or will be happy to talk - for hours - about why they don't. Here are a few other TV Talking Points: * "Liz & Dick.

If gossip prevailed, the ex-con might have begun traveling that lonely road back to jail Tuesday. It all began last week when LiLo's millionaire pal Sam Magid reported after an all-night bash at his Hollywood Hills manse that $100,000 worth of deluxe watches, sunglasses, and Tiffany flatware had been stolen.
