Could it be that Lindsay Lohan's trip to rehab was inspired by Brandon "Greasy Bear" Davis, the oily heir who dubbed her "Firecrotch" in an infamous rant caught by TMZ?
Greasy Bear, reports PerezHilton.com, was "instrumental" in getting Lohan to check into the Wonderland treatment center in Laurel Canyon. Wonderland is run by the same people behind the Promises facility in Malibu, which is where G-Bear went for his own stint in rehab after the "Firecrotch" incident.
Meanwhile, Dina Lohan, in an interview with Star magazine, has some oddly denial-like words to describe her daughter's situation: "She's 20 and she's solid, and she's doing what she needs to do. I don't know that many people who are that secure. It's all about her, and getting back on track. She's fine -- she's amazingly fine." Oh, really?
Britney Too Toxic for Euro Ball
A hoity-toity Austrian ball has axed Britney from its guest list -- and they're saying it's because Paris Hilton's going to be there. And everyone knows the two hard-partying starlets simply can't be in the same room together at the same time anymore, even though they were famously "allied" just weeks ago.
According to MSNBC, Paris is the "guest" of industrialist Richard Lugner and his wife Christina at their luxe Vienna Opera Ball; the lodging heiress is supposedly getting $1 million to show up. Says Lugner, "[Paris] is a very good advertisement for the Opera Ball." And his wife sniffily explains why Britney can't be there: "They unfortunately do not get along anymore."
Hef Wants a Baby at 80
Hugh Hefner says he just might plant the seed for another child at the ripe young age of 80. The octogenarian gallant tells Rush & Molloy that he and current love interest Holly Madison are talking about having a kid together. "I wouldn't say that there's a plan, but there has certainly been a conversation," says Hef, who already has four children from two previous marriages, including a daughter (Christie) who is more than twice the age of his current girlfriend. As Rush and Molloy put it, he may be robbing the cradle, but he could be filling it, too, if Holly gets her wish. (Cringe.)
