Paris Having Hard Time Facing Jail

Paris Hilton may be putting on a brave face – she's spent the past week shopping and partying with friends – but a source tells PEOPLE the heiress is hugely distressed about her impending jail time. "Paris hasn't been eating at all and her parents and friends are beyond worried about her. She breaks down crying a lot because she just can't deal with the reality and the pressure of everything that is happening,” said the source.

Paris was sentenced to 45 days in jail for violating probation by driving with a suspended license, and a police rep recently said she will serve at least 23 days of that sentence. Paris had said in a statement shortly after her sentencing: "I am ready to face the consequences of violating probation," and that seems to be the case – she dropped her appeal less than two weeks later. But the fact is, "She's been having such a tough time with it all despite her going out with friends and going shopping. She just does that to keep her mind off things and to try and stay as normal as possible right now,” said the source.

Paris has until June 5 to turn herself in to the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif. A police spokesperson confirms that Paris will be placed in "special needs housing," a section of the jail reserved for high-profile prisoners. Until then, she's counting on her family to help get her through. "Her biggest support has been her family – her parents without a doubt. She talks to them a million times a day and they are doing everything they can to make sure that she comes out of this okay,” the source told PEOPLE. Some others, however, have not been as helpful. "As for her friends, that's been another spot of stress for Paris," the source says. "She really can't take how most people around her have scattered and distanced themselves."


Katie "Jordan" Price's Son Hurt Again!

Katie “Jordan” Price’s disabled son was in hospital last night after a horrific accident. Partially-sighted Harvey, 5, is thought to have fallen into a mirror and badly cut his face. The glamour model is due to give birth any day to her third child. Katie and husband, Peter Andre rushed him to hospital after the accident at their home in Ockley, Surrey.

His nanny Becky was also taken to hospital, then discharged, after injuring herself as she rushed to help Harvey. Doctors fear glass is embedded in the Harvey’s wound. Last night he is believed to have been moved from East Surrey Hospital in Redhill to a specialist ward at St George’s Hospital in Tooting, South West London. A patient at East Surrey said: “Jordan and Peter waited three hours for a scan. She looked very worried.”

Earlier this year Harvey, son of Jordan’s soccer star ex Dwight Yorke, scalded his legs badly when he turned on the hot taps in a bath. Jordan’s spokesman said last night: “She is in hospital with Harvey and is devastated. All she seems to do is spend time in hospital. It is unclear how long he will be there.” Earlier this month Peter left hospital after a three-week meningitis battle.


Short Bits

After three months of dating, Hollywood's most low-key couple is still going strong! Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal who met last summer on the set of Rendition, had a rendezvous following a May 25 visit to a doctor’s office in Culver City, California. After the appointment, the pair hopped into separate cars and headed to Reese’s house. “Jake put his hand out of the sunroof and was waving, “says an eyewitness. “They looked totally in love.” That’s the impression he’s giving pals: “Jake said he’s found someone who knows how to look out for both of them, and not just themselves,” a Jake source tells Us. “Reese is more attentive than anyone else he knows.”


Celine Dion takes the upcoming cover of Hello! Magazine with 6-year-old son Rene Charles Angelil. The top-selling Canadian chanteuse is preparing to leave Las Vegas at the end of this year when her five-year run at Caesar’s Palace comes to a close. Celine and her family will be relocating to a new home in Florida. “I love taking care of my home,” she says. “My child, my house; it really fulfills me. Before him, my vocal chords ruled my life. All I had was my voice, and I hung onto it.” And little Rene’s are on their way! “I’ll do little tours with little shows… and maybe have a second child,” she added. “My mother had me at 41; I’m sure I could do the same.”


Scores of American Idol alums turned out to partake in this year's season finale, but noticeably absent from the festivities was last year’s runner-up, Katharine McPhee. Although fellow Season 5 competitors Elliot Yamin, Kellie Pickler, Taylor Hicks and Chris Daughtry all returned for guest spots this season, McPhee was missing from the rundown – and it was not by choice. “Katharine called them herself, trying to get on the [finale],” a source close to the singer tells Us. “She’s really hurt.” McPhee's rep could not be reached, and Fox had no comment.

House Season Finale

Don't forget about the House season finale tonight on Fox at 9pm eastern. It looks like it could be the best episode yet. (Damn I am going to miss this show over the summer!)

Lindsay Lohan Enters Rehab Again!

Just days after being cited for driving under the influence, Lindsay Lohan has checked into rehab, a family source confirmed to PEOPLE. The source said that the recent developments have been hard on Lindsay's family, including mom Dina. "She's doing the best she can," says the source. As for Lindsay, the source says: "We are all praying for her." This is the second time this year that star has been in a treatment facility. Her first stay, at the Wonderland Center in West Hollywood, started on Jan. 17. She is not even 21 years old yet. At the time Lindsay issued a statement saying: "I have made a proactive decision to take care of my personal health."

This time, reported that La-Lohan, as she was nicknamed in the press, has entered Promises treatment center in Malibu. The decision to enter a program comes in the wake of being cited for DUI after a car accident in Los Angeles. On Saturday morning around 5:30 a.m., Lindsay crashed her 2005 Mercedes SL-65 convertible into a curb and shrub on Sunset Boulevard. Lindsay, who had left the scene by the time police arrived, was hospitalized for minor injuries. Two passengers were not hurt. Police said in a press conference Saturday afternoon that they recovered a substance tentatively identified as "a usable amount of cocaine" in connection with the accident. However, authorities refused to specify where the drugs were found.

Rather than keep a low-profile after the accident, on Sunday Lindsay attended a Memorial Day pool party for 944 magazine at Hollywood's Roosevelt Hotel. Early the next morning, photo agency X17 snapped pictures of the Mean Girls star apparently asleep or passed out in the passenger seat of a friend's car. One source close to Lindsay told PEOPLE over the weekend that friends were hoping she would again seek treatment. "I think she'll have to do a real rehab this time, and not just a Hollywood rehab." The first time she went to rehab, Lindsay stayed at the facility for one month – but left during that time to continue filming her movie, I Know Who Killed Me, which is due out July 27. After ending her stint there, Lindsay told Allure magazine that she first went to the Wonderland center with a friend and found "a quiet room, all white, with parquet, and it was different! I just felt safe," she said. "I thought, 'I'm going to stay here tonight.' And I stayed there. For a month. It was great."

Heidi Klum spent some time with her kids: Leni, 3, Henry, 20 months, and Johan, 6 months, in New York City's Soho neighborhood over the weekend.

Angelina Jolie gave Brad Pitt the day off on Tuesday. Mr. Mom had been taking the kids to school everyday recently, but today was Angelina's turn. The Jolie-Pitt's are back in Prague for Angie to finish making her movie, Wanted. The family was in France for the Cannes Film Festival. Angelina took Pax, 3 1/2 and Zahara, 2, to their school in the American Embassy. I wonder if Zahara looks so tired from little sister, Shiloh's first birthday party this weekend?

Britney's Long Letter To Her Fans...

After all the news coverage she's received lately, Britney Spears is opening up to fans, writing on her Web site: "I just wanted to reach out to all of you and explain some of the things that I have been faced with recently." In a nearly 900-word message posted on her Web site, the singer, 25, addresses such topics as her stint in rehab, the pressures she's under, the realizations she's made over the last year, and the blessings of having children.
"Recently, I was sent to a very humbling place called rehab. I truly hit rock bottom," she writes. "Till this day I don't think that it was alcohol or depression. I was like a bad kid running around with ADD [attention deficit disorder]."

To cope, she says, "I had a manager from a long time ago come in and try to direct me and my life after I got my divorce. I was so overwhelmed I think that I was in a little shock too. I didn't know who to go to. I realized how much energy and love I had put into my past relationship when it was gone because I genuinely did not know what to do with myself, and it made me so sad. I confess, I was so lost. "This letter is to not place blame on anyone, although I do see the world with a completely different set of eyes now. Being in that vulnerable state and taken to dinners and parties with friends and finding out later you paid for everything was a huge learning lesson for me. I think the whole problem was letting too many people into my life," she writes.

"I am having to face a lot of things right now since I have children of my own. A lot of insecurities from when I was little are coming up again. It is like we are never good enough. "I know everyone thinks that I am playing the victim, but I am not and I hate what is going on right now so much. Maybe this is the reason for this letter ... to maybe allow people to look at me differently. It is like when you are a real woman and say what you feel and how you think things are supposed to be, that people just say you are a 'bitch.' "

Explaining her recent behavior, she says, "I think it is actually normal for a young girl to go out after a huge divorce. I think it was a bigger issue because I had not gone out in such a long time. I am 25 and I do still have a lot to learn, and I am going to make mistakes everyday, and I am sure every mistake I make will probably be on CNN or Good Morning America. I am only human people and I love you for still loving me." As for the backdrop of these musings, "I am sitting here at home and it is 6:25 and both of my sons are asleep," she says. "I am truly blessed to have them in my life. Everyday is so surreal. Life in general is so surreal and crazy."

In closing, she says, "I just hope this letter made some of you think a little bit more of me and where I am coming from. I just want the same things in life that you want ... and that is to be happy. It is just so weird because everyone has their own perception of me and how they think I really am. ? I guess we will never really understand or figure out life completely. That's God's job. I can't wait to meet him ... or her." She signs it, "Love, Britney."

Ashley Judd's Hubby Wins The 500

Racecar driver Dario Franchitti (also known as the husband of Ashley Judd) won the 91st edition of the Indy 500 on Sunday, in a rain-soaked race that had his celeb spouse cheering him on. "The ups and downs throughout the day – what can I say?" Franchitti said, according to the Indianapolis Star. "I'm in shock right now – it's been a rollercoaster month, and it was a rollercoaster day."

For Franchitti, 34, Judd's husband of nearly six years, the Indy win was one of his biggest ever, and it was the second win for his team in nearly three years. The race, cut short by the rain, was halted after 166 laps – or 415 of the race's 500 miles. The Scottish-born Franchitti jumped into the lead after the two drivers ahead of him were forced to make a pit stop.

"It was going to come down to a dogfight, and there's a lot of strong cars," he said, the Associated Press reports. "Whatever happened, if it came down to that dogfight, it was going to be hard, so I was hoping for the rain." As Franchitti made a victory lap of the 2.5-mile oval in the heavy rain, Judd, soaking wet in a summer dress, climbed the pit wall and dashed toward the victory celebration. "I can hardly believe it," Franchitti added of his win. "Who would have thought it?"

Lindsay Lohan In Car Accident Saturday

Lindsay Lohan was arrested and cited for driving under the influence in Los Angeles in the wee hours of Saturday morning, say police, who also found a substance tentatively identified as "a usable amount of cocaine" in connection with the accident. Lindsay was slightly injured when her 2005 Mercedes SL-65 convertible struck a curb and shrub on Sunset Boulevard. The car suffered "major damage," according to police. La-Lohan (as the press has nicknamed her) and two other people were in the vehicle when it crashed around 5:30 a.m., Lt. Mitch McCann, media relations officer for Beverly Hills police department, said during a press conference Saturday. The star was hospitalized for minor upper chest injuries. The passengers were not hurt.

Police learned of the accident when they received a 911 call at 5:30 a.m. There was also a witness on the scene, but police do not know if the same person called 911. By the time authorities responded, three minutes after the call, Lindsay, her companions and the car were gone from the scene. Lindsay was later located by police at the Century City Hospital. Her car was found at a nearby condo complex and towed at 6:30 a.m. Police won't say how they know that the actress was driving, but say they're "confident" that she was.

At the press conference McCann said: "A usable amount of an illegal narcotic tentatively identified as cocaine was recovered and booked." Police would not specify where the drugs were found. "She was charged with a misdemeanor," said McCann. "There is a potential for additional charges." The actress, who stars in the upcoming movie I Know Who Killed Me, was spotted out at the Hollywood hotspot Les Deux before the crash. She arrived around 11:15 p.m. with a group of friends, and was seen dancing and smoking. Lindsay checked into rehab in January, saying: "I have made a proactive decision to take care of my personal health." The month before that, her rep told PEOPLE the actress had been attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.

I'm going to have my fanny (vagina) done, too. I want to be a virgin again. That'll be a treat for Pete."

Rosie Goes Bye-Bye Early

I can finally think about watching The View again. Rosie is gone. Somebody up there likes me. As you can see I do not like Rosie and never have. (Even before she came out of the closet.) So I am trilled with her announcement today that she is leaving.

Rosie O'Donnell will not be coming back to The View, ABC announced Friday. "We had hoped that Rosie would be with us until the end of her contract three weeks from now, but Rosie has informed us that she would like an early leave," Brian Frons, president of ABC Daytime, said in a statement. "Therefore, we part ways, thank her for her tremendous contribution to The View and wish her well."

Barbara Walters, said in the statement: "I brought Rosie to the show. Rosie contributed to one of our most exciting and successful years at The View. I am most appreciative. Our close and affectionate relationship will not change."

O'Donnell said: "I'm extremely grateful. It's been an amazing year and I love all three women." The move follows several days of speculation that O'Donnell, who was scheduled to leave the show when her contract expires in June, would not come back to The View following Wednesday's on-air blow-up with Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

Is Holly Madison Expecting?

Is Holly Madison pregnant? Hugh Hefner was seen rubbing her belly at Hyde Lounge in LA. Instead of dressing in her typical tight and short garb, Holly was wearing a baby doll dress instead. Combine that with the fact that Hugh’s gal is just “dying to get pregnant” and we have ourselves another baby rumor to consider.“Hugh Hefner was spotted acting paternal as he tenderly patted girlfriend Holly Madison’s tummy at a May 15 party at L.A.’s Hyde Lounge. Forgoing her usual snug attire, Holly, 27, one of Hef’s three girlfriends, sported a baggy babby doll dress. Sources say no baby is on the way just yet, but don’t be surprised if the father of four becomes a dad again! “Holly’s just dying to get pregnant and marry Hef so he can be all hers,” one of her pal tells Star.
