Queen Latifah ♥ sobriety

Here's something you don't hear every day - a celebrity host who cares about the welfare of her guests enough to send them home in cabs if they fail a breathalyzer test at the end of the night.

According to the National Enquirer (I know, I know - but they have become somewhat of a reliable source as of late), Queen Latifah made guests at her 39th birthday party prove they were sober before leaving the bash. Those who blew over the limit were sent home in a cab.

Guests included the off-again Samantha Ronson and Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and her latest boytoy Doug Reinhardt, Kim Kardashian and Vivica A. Fox. I wonder which of them went home in a cab? Hmmmm...

Cele|bitchy points out that Queen Latifah lost her brother, an off-duty police officer, in a motorcycle accident in 1992. The bike he was riding was a gift from her; she now wears the key to it on a chain around her neck. Latifah was in an accident of her own while vacationing on the Virgin Islands, when she lost control of the scooter she was driving. She was mostly unharmed, though it must have given her the scare of a lifetime. From the sounds of it, these two incidents play a part in her desire to ensure her guests arrive alive.

Good looking out!
