Still trudging along on the path to a reformed, healthy lifestyle, Lindsay Lohan is working on kicking yet another addiction: her cigs. The paparazzi have snapped plenty of pics of Lohan trolling around with Ariva (an anti-smoking product), but thus far the star has received no compensation for this endorsement. All that might be about to change.
According to gossip, Lindsay is currently in talks with the manufacturer to fully endorse the product. One source close to Lohan says she’s in New York this week just for these discussions (and her late-night vodka sessions are apparently unrelated).

Eva Mendes, the star of the abysmally-awful Ghost Rider, has decided to make use of her time off work to put some things in order. (Un)fortunately for her, no one has noticed her absence— she’s been seeking ‘substance abuse’ treatment for several weeks!
Her rep confirmed the news to TMZ:
“Eva has been working hard for the past year and made a positive decision to take some much-needed time off to proactively attend to some personal issues that, while not critical, she felt deserved some outside professional support. Out of respect for Eva’s privacy, we do not wish to discuss further details.”
Eva, 33, is currently holed up at the Cirque Lodge in Utah. (Two points to those who immediately remembered Lindsay Lohan’s stay in that same facility.) The actress can next be seen this fall in the remake of The Women.

The death of Heath Ledger last week seemed to bring out the worst in our fellow “journalists”.
After watching the TV coverage of Heath Ledger‘s passing, I couldn’t help but be reminded of Don Henley’s song, “Dirty Laundry”. For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, “Dirty Laundry” is Henley’s commentary on the decline of journalism and how the people who cover the news are really just failed actors and news coverage is all about finding the “dirtiest” story about someone and running with it whether it’s true or not. (Henley wrote the song fifteen years ago.) The lyrics that particularly came to mind in light of Ledger’s passing are:
“Dirty little secrets, dirty little lies
We got our dirty little fingers in everybody’s pie
Love to cut you down to size, we love dirty laundry”
The three “journalists” that appeared to be most guilty of this were:
Nancy Grace. On her show, Grace called on a number of “professionals” (i.e mental health “experts”) who prattled on about Ledger’s “alleged” state of mind at the time of his death and what the meaning of all those pills scattered around his body “probably” meant. I didn’t really pay too close attention to what they were saying until the term “bipolar disorder” came up. I then did what hopefully any sane, sensitive person would do. I changed the channel and put on QVC. (If I want to watch schlock, I’ll buy it from QVC.)
After the dissolution of his seven-year marriage, Ethan Hawke didn’t look far for his next hook-up. Now the actor, who has two children with ex-wife Uma Thurman, will be a dad once again. The new mom? His kids’ former nanny.
Hawke, 37, met Ryan Shawhughes, 28, when she was working for the still-married couple. (Although it was rumored an affair may have factored in his divorce, Shawhughes wasn’t the one in question.) The two later began dating after Ethan and Uma parted ways.
Mara Buxbaum, Hawke’s rep, confirmed the pregnancy news and went on to say the two were ‘thrilled’. No details on a due date or possible nuptials were announced.

Sean Young, the actress from 1982’s Blade Runner and 1987’s No Way Out, has admitted herself into rehab after embarrassing herself over the weekend. This incident came shortly after an Entertainment Weekly interview in which she declared she was a “comeback waiting to happen.” Uhhh, it looks like she might be waiting a little bit longer now.
During a ceremony for the Directors Guild of America awards, the drunken D-lister made a complete ass of herself and interrupted the proceedings with her obnoxious behavior. According to reports, she spoke rudely in French to Marion Cotillard and chose to sing a few bars while Kristin Chenoweth was performing. All that led to her climactic outburst during Julian Schnabel‘s (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) turn at the podium.
The director - who was a little slow getting started - was disrespectively urged by the lush to ‘get on with it’. After telling Young to “have another cocktail”, he attempted to go forward. Unfortunately, the frustrated Schnabel found it difficult to maintain his composure and later told Sean to go ahead and finish his speech. Upset that he was going to cut his time short, the audience yelled and encouraged him to stay. It was at this time the party crasher was kicked out of the hotel. (For a view of the interrupted speech, check out the video after the jump.)

Angelina Jolie must have finally inked a deal on who gets to report her pregnancy. And though the news has been all over TV and the Internet for weeks, the “scoop” is finally revealed: Yes, Brangelina is pregnant again. It’s on the cover of OK Magazine, so it has to be true, right?
The tabloids are all over the story, many claiming that she’s expecting twins instead of a single birth. Brad Pitt is said to be very excited and in charge of getting the nursery ready for the new addition. The couple’s first biological child, Shiloh, was born in May 2006.

Despite her stint in rehab late last year,
party girl Lindsay Lohan hasn’t been shy about visiting old friends. In less than a month, Linds has been seen partaking spirits in a public setting. At a New Year’s celebration in Italy, the naive girl was foolish enough to wrap her lips on a champagne bottle within distance of a video camera. After her ‘slip-up’ was splashed around the world, her lawyer came in quickly to clean up the mess:
“After being handed a champagne bottle while on a dance floor in Italy on New Year’s Eve and drinking from it, the good news is that Lindsay stopped herself, called her sponsor, and got herself back on track.”

Well rumor has it that two of the Kabbalah‘s most high-profile followers may have veered away from its teachings. No not dabblers Britney Spears and Paris Hilton - but rather Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher. Not only has their service attendance been spotty lately, but Kutcher was apparently seen without the telltale red bracelet. Why? No one seems to know. Maybe they just simply ran out of bleach for the whites?
