As if Lindsay Lohan didn’t have enough to work on during her stay in Utah’s Cirque Lodge, it looks like her publicity-loving, estranged dad Michael Lohan will soon visit the troubled star. Page Six reports that the Lohan clan, including mother Dina, have reached the decision together at the urging of LiLo’s brother, Michael.

“It's a part of the healing process," a source told Page Six. "Lindsay will see him later this week, but she will have counselors with her. It will not be alone." And given gab-Dad’s love of going straight to the media with all things Lindsay, they’ll need a gag order and pen, in addition to those counselors.

One man who won’t be visiting Linds in rehab, or anywhere else for that matter, is her former honey Calum Best, according to The Daily Mirror. It seems the hunky Brit finds the rehab and community service scene too much to handle.

“Calum is a hot-blooded male and he just feels it’s hard enough seeing Lindsay at the best of times, but he is never going to see her now,” a friend of the former model revealed to The Mirror.

Will they find catnip in Pete Doherty’s system?Turns out Pete Doherty's bad influence extends well beyond Kate Moss. Music Web site Spinner reports that a kitten in care of the Babyshambles frontman and intermittent Moss flame recently tested positive for copious amounts of cocaine. That’s right, animal lovers. Not only is Pete apparently too busy with his legal wranglings and disintegrating music career to responsibly get his cat Dinger (cockney for “syringe") spayed, he doesn't even have time to put his drugs away.

According to Spinner, Doherty’s negligence came to light when one of Dinger’s sickly offspring showed up in a vet’s office filled to the gills with the illegal narcotic. At least Pete, or someone in his entourage, sought medical care for the poor kitty. Still, Spinner reports, a British animal protective agency chose to seize the whole kitty family anyway.

Lance Bass: Oh no he didn’t!… disrespect New York City, that is. Or so the former NSyncer claims on his MySpace profile. Lance Bass, now playing Corny Collins in the Broadway musical “Hairspray,” had some harsh things to say about the Greatest City in the World in a recent New York Magazine interview. Like everyone who moves there, he had a tough time finding decent digs. “There’s a lot of pieces of crap here for a lot of money,” he said.

Well, nobody’s arguing that point … but Lance may have stepped over the line when he followed up with this caustic comment: “And I don’t think anyone here has any style. I was looking at fully furnished places and it was like, you can either have a bunch of floral prints or some dusty couch from the 1960s.”

If indeed Lance said that at all, which he now claims he didn’t. The Celebrity Truth Web site called attention to Lance’s objection on his My Space profile, which reads in part: “This dumb reporter just put words in my mouth and turned everything I said into a negative. I told her I love NY and I will probably be doing the bi-coastal thing now because I love it so much.”

New York Magazine stands by the story.

Dish on the flyTerrence Howard to the rescue! Mark Malkin (E!) reports that Howard showed his heroic side during a lunchtime interview with Margot Dougherty. When the writer started to choke, the 38-year-old actor used the Heimlich maneuver to save her.  Howard said he saw the move on “Mrs. Doubtfire,” “She saved Pierce Brosnan.”… Are Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony ready for a baby? JLo spoke to Grazia Magazine about their family ambitions. “I can’t wait to have a baby. I’m ready and so is Marc.”
