We're told the "Ghost Rider" star is at the famous Cirque Lodge, near Sundance. The Lodge, which treated Lindsay Lohan and other stars, is one of the most respected treatment facilities in the country.

Eva has been at Cirque for several weeks.

Her rep tells 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."

I wonder what she needs help for? She seems like such a healthy person, and you never see pictures of her partying or doing anything crazy or acting abnormal in any way. So weird.

THAT'S PROBABLY WHY HER MOUTH IS "TWISTED" LIKE BOBBY BROWN'S MOUTH.

You think the paparazzi was the same 50 years ago Nancy ? How well do you think Lana Turner or Marilyn Monroe would hold up under the scutiny of what Brittany Spears has to go thru ?

Unfortunately, addiction is a disease and it affects everyone from celebrities to ceo's and everyone in between.
There is one techinque that is very successful in treating addiction and that is by attending 12 step meetings.
For those out there who are interested, there's a 12 step meeting on the radio and on the web. Check it out by going to
www.12stepmeeting.com You'll learn a lot. Good luck to everyone~

I could be something as simple as Vicodin or Xanax. Prescription drugs creep up on people and they can become addicted. They said it wasn't "critical" so maybe she just found herself using more of "whatever" she's using than she wanted to, and the facility is a break for her. She can get away from the Hollyweird lifestyle or her fast paced schedule in order to recoup a little. Smart move on her part if that's the case.

Having worked with Celebs, I can tell you that their PR's plan these sort of things. All you need is a good scandal and the offers come pouring in. Calvin Klein is just the first. By tonight her story will be splattered all over the web, TV, and since the whole thing is faked, it's easy for them to come out of rehab. All of this is to get more people using drugs, getting drunk, and your favorite star is making it in rehab. Some actually are junkies like Whitney & Bobby or Britney Spears. Even for kids, as much as their stars are posing half nude photos, the more little 10-17 year olds are doing it too. Take Miley Cyrus' underwear shots that hit the web this week...though it's funny TMZ never reported that. Real deal, as long as people give them attention, the more Hollywood passes off it's bad habits on you. Example use of swear words in shows and movies, nudity in pg films, and kids posing risky shots on the web. Yeah it's been done, but it's cause as much as people complain, nobody does anything about it, so my props to them. For instance Vanessa Hudgens career is booming, Jamie Lynn is more famous than ever, as well as Miley Cyrus for her pics. Nobody will, or can do anything about it, except deal with it cause nobody's able to stop it.
