Gimme More! Lauren Conrad
"I'd gone upstairs, and I came out and I'm in a robe. All of the sudden I see all this s--t going on. I have a guest house where my assistant sometimes is, and I think, someone has broken out of prison and like escaped, because it's a chase scene. It's something out of Die Hard.
I get my baseball bat, which is what you always get in every film – I actually think Clive Owen said, 'Get a baseball bat' – and I called up my assistant, who I thought was in the guest house, and I said, 'Are you OK?' And she's like, 'Yes.' And I said, 'Look, if there's someone in the place, say the word stonehenge.' And she's like, 'What the f--k are you talking about? I'm in my apartment.' I go, 'You're not in the guesthouse?' 'No.' So I'm, like, 'Well, then, what the f--k is going on?' And I go out and I'm running around with a baseball bat in my robe. And it turns out it's Britney Spears' house is like, 300 yards from mine. So now I have to move."
My amazing realtor Becca sent me the info on Lauren Conrad's new home. It is described as such: Stunning renovation of a 1920’s character Spanish. Gated w/courtyard entry. 3 bedroom, 2.5 baths, den+private detached guesthouse w/bath. Refinished hardwood floors, custom kitchen w/Lagos Azul counters & high-end stainless steel appliances. Tastefully appointed baths w/Carrera marble. Original charm such as gorgeous wrought iron work, original moldings, antique light fixtures, & a beautiful den w/traditional Spanish floor tiles. Great outdoor space includes a sun-filled yard, pool & fireplace. Also renovated: electrical, HVAC, roof, foundation, pool. Asking price is $2,495,000. She's still in escrow and we'll see what she actually paid soon. So I guess Lo and Audrina will be sharing a bathroom unless one of them gets the guesthouse?

Yes, yes, yes!
Amy Winehouse, 24, has checked into a rehab facility today after an intervention that included her record label, management, family and doctors. They issued a statement that read, "[Amy] has come to understand that she requires specialist treatment to continue her ongoing recovery from drug addiction and prepare for her planned appearance at the Grammy Awards. She is nominated in an incredible six categories. Amy entered the facility by mutual agreement and continues to receive the full support of all concerned. Amy is the most talented and important musical artist of her generation and has made huge strides on her road to recovery. The label has always had the best interests of Amy at heart and has been guided by her family and doctors in the last few months as to the best direction to take. All concerned feel that Amy must put her health before all other considerations and will be by her side whenever and wherever they are needed."
This new push towards treatment came after UK paper The Sun obtained a video of her smoking crack last week.
I really hate reading all this stuff, but here's the latest in the Heath Ledger situation:
-His body is cleared for transport to Australia for burial.
-Production has been halted on his latest film and the picture is suspended indefinately.
-Michelle Williams and daughter Matilda Ledger are home in New York with her mother and her best friend, former Dawson's Creek co-star and godmother to Matilda, Busy Philipps.
-Mary Kate Olsen may have been dating Heath. The masseuse called Mary Kate from Heath's phone and MK sent her EMT bodyguard over immediately to try and assist. Her bodyguard reportedly told police that MK and Heath had a relationship.
-No illegal drugs were found in his home. He did have multiple prescriptions, including anti-anxiety and sleep aid medications.
