Is Lindsay Lohan treating rehab like a day spa? The actress has been regularly venturing outside the Wonderland treatment facility where she’s addressing undisclosed issues — and her sober cohabiters are peeved.
Fellow residents at the upscale center complained to Web site TMZ about La Linds receiving perks such as on-site visits from a masseuse and stylist, as well as frequent forays out of rehab.
Now, it’s one thing that LiLo has taken day trips to work on her "I Know Who Killed Me" film shoot — but she also left Wonderland to lunch with pals Wednesday, service her Mercedes on Thursday and shop at the Beverly Hills Dior store Sunday.
Her rep counters, "Lindsay is 100 percent not getting special treatment. … It’s not a lockdown facility. There is personal time. All these naysayers who keep blogging and speaking out ... they don’t know what she’s going through, they’re not there. They shouldn’t speak until they’ve gone through something like that."
Um, OK … but it sounds like the people who are there going through the same thing are the ones speaking out!

On a serious and sad note, Marcheline Bertrand, actress mother of Angelina Jolie, passed away Saturday afternoon at 56 after battling cancer for more than seven years. Angelina, partner Brad Pitt and brother James Haven were by her side at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center the day of her death, according to a statement released by Angelina’s rep.
Marcheline, a former model and film actress, raised her two young children solo following her divorce from Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight. Angelina, also an Academy Award winner, has said frequent childhood movie outings with her mother, and not her father’s career, inspired her to go into acting.
Heartfelt condolences go out to Marcheline’s family, who ask that instead of flowers, donations be sent to the Women’s Cancer Research Institute at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
Drama reportedly marred Alicia Keys’ 27th birthday party at NYC hot spot Bed when Kimora Lee Simmons went off on a partygoer. According to the New York Daily News, the designer and former model stunned the room by shouting "Get out of my face," followed by an unprintable name, at another woman.
A source told the paper, "Kimora said that the woman had thrown a drink at her. She didn’t look wet to me. But security grabbed the girl and ushered her out."
By way of explanation, Kimora’s adversary allegedly exclaimed, "She’s jealous of me!"
But there’s another side to the story. Kimora’s rep insisted to the Daily News that the Baby Phat diva was "accosted" by a "disrespectful fan," while another source said that the woman "constantly shows up at events where Kimora is expected. Frankly, it’s a little scary. Kimora is looking into getting a restraining order."
Watch Kimora talk about her Baby Phat fashion show at Radio City Music Hall, first ever at the venerable New York City landmark (below):
Is Hilary Duff as squeaky clean as she appears? A source told Us magazine’s Web site the 19-year-old showed up at a nightclub stumbling drunk and "acting pretty wild."
The site claims that Hilary made her entrance at L.A.’s Hyde after 11 p.m. with a posse that included big sis Haylie. She then barged into a bathroom with a male friend, according to theeyewitness, who describes the perky pop star as being "pretty drunk and staggering around the bathroom, bumping into people and shrieking [about] her gay male friend … [and how] it was OK for him to be there."
Throughout the night, Hilary and Haylie reportedly were "all over" their thirtysomething dates, with a flirtatious Hilary making herself comfortable on her man’s lap.
Could this really be true of the sweet, innocent girl from "Lizzie McGuire"? Say it ain’t so, Hil!
