To the shock of … well, OK, nobody, Lindsay Lohan has entered rehab. The actress announced in a statement, "I have made a proactive decision to take care of my personal health. I appreciate your well wishes and ask that you please respect my privacy at this time."
According to People, LiLo is currently on hiatus from filming her role as a stripper in "I Know Who Killed Me" due to health reasons — she’s still recovering from an appendectomy — though she was apparently well enough to go out clubbing the night following the surgery. While her rep is mum on where Lindsay’s staying, Us Weekly reports that she’s at Hollywood’s Wonderland Center.
It’s good to see this talented, troubled star step up, acknowledge her problem and take steps to fix it. Good luck, Linds!
Watch Lindsay Lohan’s video, "First," below:
If you predicted that Kevin Federline ’s career trajectory would culminate with the words "Do you want fries with that?" give yourself a gold star. Britney Spears’ ex-husband is poking fun at his freeloading image with a new TV commercial that depicts him living a downsized post-Brit life — as a fast-food employee.
In the upcoming spot for Nationwide Insurance, as in life, K-Fed fantasizes about being a hip-hop star.
The insurance company has established a rep for amusing ads featuring D-list stars. When his spot debuts during the Super Bowl, Kevin will join the ranks of such luminaries as Fabio and MC Hammer.
"It’s just a good opportunity to poke fun at myself and let everyone know I’m not taking myself too seriously. I’m having a good time," the FedEx explained on set. "I saw some of their old commercials and to me, it is hilariously tasteful."
We think it’s hilarious, too … but Kevin, we’re laughing at you, not with you.
More delicious dish keeps emerging from the night of the Golden Globes, when stars celebrated in a big way — and some got a little carried away. Recently jilted Cameron Diaz ’ reportedly lost her cool at an after-party when she saw ex Justin Timberlake chatting up starlet Jessica Biel — and ended up in a screaming match with the "SexyBack" singer.
J.T. and Jessica were chatting at a late-night bash he hosted at the Beverly Wilshire hotel when, onlookers say, green-eyed monster Cam cut in. She and Justin headed to a (not-so-private) side room, where the "Holiday" star railed at her former man for a good 40 minutes, according to bystanders.
As one source astutely observed to the New York Post, "If that’s how she wants to get him back, it won’t work. She’s desperate."
Hey, Cam, if you’re that hard up for a man, we hear Kevin Federline is in the market for a new sugar mama.
One last tantalizing Globes tidbit: A couple of long-estranged A-listers finally broke the ice during the awards ceremony. Us Weekly reports that Brad Pitt stepped out onto a balcony for a smoke and was approached by Courteney Cox — best friend of his ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston.
Now, Courteney and Brad hadn’t spoken since he left Jen for Angelina Jolie, but their reunion wasanything but frosty. Brad greeted the "Friends" star with "Hello, sweetheart. It is so great to see you," and swept her into an embrace, according to the magazine’s Web site. The Hollywood parents then caught up by swapping stories about their tots.
But one person wasn’t included in the love fest. Angelina reportedly stood awkwardly apart from the amicable pair, and barely ventured a greeting to Courteney before marching her man off. Talk about a short leash!
