Lindsay Lohan didn't want to be a stiff during her first day at the morgue ...so she went in and washed soiled linens, scrubbed toilets and seemed to enjoy her time with the other volunteers ... sources tell TMZ.
We're told LiLo said she felt "terrible" about showing up late and being such a distraction on Thursday, so she went to bed early to avoid a repeat performance.
Lindsay, we're told, didn't act like a spoiled brat. Like so many of her friends, she got down on her hands and knees .... and cleaned floors. She even socialized with some of the other volunteers.
As for the whole burger and cupcake thing ... Lindsay told friends she wasn't trying to bribe anyone ... but the gesture was just another way to show the staff how sorry she was for being late the day before.

Mrs. America doesn't give it up for free ... even to bigshot TV producers ... and now the company behind the pageant is going after a network that aired the competition without paying up ... this according to a new lawsuit.
The Mrs. America pageant (it's like Miss America without the oral sex ... just KIDDING!) ... claims it had a deal with My Family TV to bank 50% of all ad revenue on the broadcast of the 2011 contest.
Mrs. America claims My Family TV had 60 days to pay up after the May 8th broadcast -- which featured Florence Henderson BTW -- but the network has flaked out in a big way.
Now, Mrs. America is demanding their money -- more than $50,000.
So far, no comment from My Family TV.

Mitchel Musso -- who starred alongside Miley Cyrus on "Hannah Montana" -- has been charged with 2 counts of drunk driving stemming from his arrest in Burbank, CA earlier this week ... and he could wind up behind bars.
Law enforcement sources tells TMZ ... the Burbank City Attorney has charged Musso with driving under the influence of alcohol and driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher -- both misdemeanors.
If convicted on both counts, 20-year-old Musso faces a maximum of 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
TMZ broke the story ... Musso was pulled over at 3:43 AM Sunday ... after he allegedly failed to slow down for cops who were directing traffic for an unrelated accident. Cops suspected he was hammered and placed him under arrest.
The actor is due back in court on Nov. 11.

The gun-toting family on A&E's new reality show "American Hoggers" are under fire from an animal rights group for the gruesome way the pigs are "tied up and shot" on the show ... TMZ has learned.
In case you haven't seen it -- "American Hoggers" follows Jerry "Hog Boss" Campbell ... and his family as they hunt and kill feral pigs ... armed with hunting dogs and guns. It's pretty graphic ... even for A&E.
The show just premiered this week -- and it didn't take long for PETA to take notice. In fact, the animal rights org. has just released a statement saying, "the Campbells' show promotes cruel animal-control measures and gross mistreatment of wildlife."
PETA claims it acknowledges that feral pigs can be problematic in parts of Texas, but the group says, "If property owners insist on lethal control, then feral hogs should be cage-trapped and afforded a quick, painless death."
We reached out to A&E for comment, and so far haven't received a response.
** WARNING -- the clip is very graphic **

Wearing his and hers shades, "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" widow Taylor Armstrong enjoyed a friendly lunch with "Most Eligible Dallas" hunk Matt Nordgren at Clementine Cafe in L.A. on Thursday.
While the Bravo stars have been rumored to be hooking up, Nordgren is adamant they are just "friends" ... and Armstrong just tweeted "I am NOT dating anyone from anywhere! Stop the rumors! I am trying to heal with my daughter."
Taylor's husband, Russell Armstrong, committed suicide in August.

Snooki's legal team just smoosh smoosh'd all over the website that published a false story about her -- that she was arrested in a marijuana mega-bust yesterday -- because the site has issued an embarrassing apology for the mix-up.
TMZ obtained a copy of the mea culpa -- sent to Snooki's reps earlier today -- in which the website admits, "It has come to our attention that the story we released regarding your alleged arrest yesterday was false."
The site continues, "Our actions were wrongful and reckless ... What we did was wrong. We are sorry we did it. We are sorry for the attention it brought you."
And the coup de grace -- "We would also like to inform you that upon your request we will no longer use nor refer to you, your name, your likeness, nor your image."
Boom. Snooki wins by knockout.

Ashton Kutcher posted a video online -- rambling on about the "state of honesty" and the "state of truth" in the media ... and even though he doesn't specifically reference the drama surrounding his marriage to Demi Moore ... it's pretty clear what he's talking about.

A rep for the Lohan family just issued a statement, appearing to take issue with TMZ's story that Dina Lohan is pitching a book around town, but he's not really taking issue at all ... because what we're saying is the truth.
The rep says:
-- "Dina has not written a book yet and has not signed with a publisher."
That statement is true. She has written a prologue -- which we have seen -- and she is trying to shop it around to literary agents.
-- "If and when that happens, her book would certainly show the utmost compassion for her children."
Maybe that's true ... that is if she changes the prologue which she is using to sell the book ... because in the prologue she exposes her daughter's drug and alcohol problems.
-- "Right now her focus is on the well-being of her family."
You be the judge of that one.

Famed political activist Cornel West -- a frequent guest on "Real Time with Bill Maher" -- was arrested in NYC this morning for disorderly conduct ... TMZ has learned.
Cops tell TMZ ... West and approximately 30 others were arrested for blocking the entrance to a police station in Harlem during a protest.
According to RT.com, West and company were demonstrating against the New York Police Department’s continuing "Stop and Frisk" policy, claiming NYPD officers should NOT be able to search protesters without due cause.

Lindsay Lohan says she is the mystery buyer who ordered 36 gourmet cupcakes and burgers to the L.A. County Morgue today ... insisting the gesture was simply to say, "I'm sorry."
Lohan's rep tells TMZ, "Lindsay asked her assistant to pick up lunches from the In-And-Out in Huntington Park around 10:30 a.m. Around 11:00 a.m., her assistant returned with the lunches and brought them into the administrative trailer and set the food on a table for the volunteers to eat on their break."
The rep added, "Reports that Lindsay had lunches brought in for the other volunteers are completely accurate despite any claims to the contrary."
"Additionally, Lindsay ordered cupcakes for the staff and volunteers. When they were delivered, morgue supervisors would not let them into the building."
"It is unfortunate that Lindsay's well-intentioned actions were not taken in the spirit in which she intended; to say she was sorry for yesterday's misunderstanding."
Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter told TMZ ... he turned away the cupcake delivery guy because the move is simply, "unacceptable" ... adding, "We're not here to accept food."
Winter also tells us, no burgers were distributed to the staff.

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are NOT on the verge of a split ... not even close ... despite several screaming magazine covers and websites SWEARING they're headed for divorce.
In fact, TMZ has learned the newest story making the rounds -- about Kris supposedly getting booted out of their NYC pad -- is just another steaming pile of BS.
Multiple sources who are extremely close to the couple tell us they were simply getting some boxes together for the newlyweds' big move back to L.A. ... together.
The couple had been living out of NYC's swagtastic Gansevoort Hotel for a couple months while Kim shot her new reality show "Kim and Kourtney Take New York" -- and yesterday, it was finally time to move out.
As for Kris' lack of wedding ring -- we're told the guy just isn't a fan of jewelry.

TMZ Live is thrown into utter chaos over Lindsay Lohan, cupcakes and the In-N-Out mystery. Did Lindsay lie about buying the desserts? Did she have someone sneak burgers into the morgue? How can a place with a bunch of dead people have this much excitement?
Plus, Harvey and Brian's harsh words over Dina's plan to sell Lindsay out in her memoirs.

Dr. Conrad Murray made a pretty shocking statement last night, leaving a restaurant in Santa Monica. He said, "I would like to pray for the prosecutor, his associates, and his expert witness."
Sadly, the photog didn't ask why Murray was praying for them ... whether it's because he prays for everyone, be they friend or foe -- or whether he's praying because he believes they are portraying him unfairly/unethically before the jury.

The L.A. County Coroner just turned away a dude who was delivering 36 fancy cupcakes to Lindsay Lohan and 35 of her closest friends at the morgue.
We found out about it and called Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter to inquire, and he said, "WHAT!" -- and then went to the front door and turned the delivery guy away (see video below).
Winter told TMZ, "It's unacceptable. We're not here to accept food," adding there are not 36 people in Lindsay's program, so some of the cupcakes were apparently earmarked for the Coroner's staff.
We found out the order was placed this morning at the fancy, Magnolia Bakery by someone Lindsay knows.
The bakery owner would not tell TMZ whether the order was placed at Lindsay's behest, but Winter told TMZ he spoke with Lindsay and she said she had nothing to do with the order.
