Dad: Lindsay Lohan wants rehab in Florida


Brace for it. Lindsay Lohan may be headed to the Sunshine State for her rehab. That is if she and her father Michael Lohan have their way.

The actress was sentenced to 90 days in a facility after pleading no contest to charges for lying to police about a car crash last June.

Her lawyer Mark Heller told L.A. Superior Court Judge James R. Dabney that Lohan had checked into a rehab, but prosecutors have not signed off on the facility, reports AP.

Michael told RadarOnline that Lohan was upset to learn she couldn’t smoke at Seafield Center in Westhampton Beach, N.Y.

Now it appears she has moved to the Morningside facility in Newport Beach, Calif., where she can puff away. The prosecution had argued that the Scary Movie 5 star had violated her plea deal by not enrolling in a pre-approved facility.

According to her father, where Lindsay would really like to lay her head is the more luxurious, celebrity oriented Lukens Institute in West Palm Beach. “She asked me if she could transfer to Lukens once she starts, and I told her of course she can,” dear old dad told the gossip site. “I will get it all settled for her.”

Reese’s secrets

Edgier roles may be in Reese Witherspoon’s future. A source told People magazine that the 37-year-old Oscar winner is not how she appears in sweet little movies like Legally Blonde. “With her, what happens in public and in private is very different,” the source dished. “She does like to drink.” And she’s met her match in husband Jim Toth, whom the source described as a “party animal.”

Not so spicy

Viva Forever? Not as it turns out. Producers announced the Spice Girls musical will close at London’s Piccadilly Theater June 29 after a disappointing six-month run. Produce r Judy Craymer said despite tweaks since the show opened in December, “we just can’t make it work.” Written by Absolutely Fabulous comedian Jennifer Saunders, the show is a modern-day tale of female friendship and mother-daughter bonds set to songs by the 1990s Girl Power icons.

Hey, sexy lady

Hey, Ashton Kutcher, you’ve got good taste. Girlfriend Mila Kunis is the sexiest woman in the world, according to FHM magazine. The Friends with Benefits star, 29, beat 99 other attractive females from around the world to top the poll, where she came in at No. 14 last year.
