Everyone has already heard about the busy schedule Lindsay Lohan keeps at Utah’s Cirque Lodge. But what does Lindsay do to fill the rehab gaps between chores, exercises and therapy? According to a recent story in the Daily Mirror, LiLo’s used some of that downtime to get cozy with Dead Stays Alive frontman Tony Allen.
Rumor has it that Lindsay and the married rocker hooked up after bonding over their mutual addictions and creative careers. The Mirror reports that things took off from there. It’s even alleged that the pair had sex in a bathroom at the rehab facility.
A friend of Tony’s wife, British heiress Stephanie Allen, spoke to the Mirror about her pal’s devastation. “She's has had it, period. They tried forever to have kids. She went through IVF three times and suffered two miscarriages, and when they finally got two beautiful babies, he hooks up in rehab with a girl half his age. All Stephanie wanted was for him to be a good husband and father.”
For his part, Tony, who has since left the Cirque, denies the claims. “We're great friends. We share a common affliction, and we just talk about life sometimes.” But the Daily Mirror also cites reports of Tony bragging to friends at a bar about the relationship. “C'mon, it's Lindsay Lohan. Hell, yes! Wouldn't you?”
Lauren Conrad was ready to ditch ‘The Hills’Could “The Hills” even exist without Lauren Conrad? Viewers almost had a chance to find out. LC revealed to Seventeen how she nearly left the reality world behind.
“I actually came dangerously close to not doing season three, because I really didn't want to do the show with Heidi and Spencer. I'm not who they are. I don't stage my own publicity. I just kind of live my life and do my job, and I don't want to be grouped with them.”
In the Seventeen story she explained how the powers that be at MTV told her that they couldn’t tailor the cast to her wishes. LC said the network informed her that “Heidi and Spencer were always a part of the show, and they can't all of a sudden make main characters disappear.”
Obviously Lauren decided to stick it out for at least one more season, despite her concerns. So now she says the show goes on, and “the producers keep letting Heidi and Spencer think there's some hope (that we'll make up).”
Is ‘Hero’ Hayden out for blood?
Michael Ausiello of TV Guide revealed some stunning news about “Heroes” star Hayden Panettiere. Apparently the normally goody-good actress threw a hissy fit just before the Emmys. Hayden spied an US Weekly staffer on the red carpet and “threatened to kill” her! It took some redirection by Hayden’s publicist and a “Not on the red carpet!” warning to set things right. Ausiello claims the brouhaha was all due to a recent story in US Weekly about the starlet’s split from “Laguna Beach” hottie Stephen Colletti.
Dish on the fly
Paris Hilton is feeling charitable; at least that’s what ContactMusic is reporting. “I have, like, a million clothes and more than 500 pairs of shoes, so I'm going to give a bunch of them to orphanages and children's hospitals. I never wear something twice.” So tall, super-skinny, big-footed kids-in-need take heed, there could be some unfortunate fashion picks in your future. … Rumors had Rose McGowan as a possible pick for the leading lady in the upcoming “Speed Racer” flick, so why did the gig go to Christina Ricci? The NY Daily News claims it was due to Rose’s plastic surgery. Their insider said, “The studio felt like she was hard to recognize and worried that by the time the movie hit theaters, fans might not know who she was.”
