A bright spot for Lindsay Lohan: She will not face a probation violation for leaving another treatment facility after a few minutes, a prosecutor said Friday. La Lohan is safely tucked away at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif. The Liz & Dick starlet is required to spend 90 days in rehab as part of a plea deal in a misdemeanor case filed after a June car accident. She has also re-hired longtime attorney Shawn Holley. There have to be a lot of zeroes on that woman’s paycheck. Lohan is no stranger to Betty Ford: While serving a different mandatory rehab sentence in 2010, the actress got into an altercation with a rehab worker there.

Case closed

A lawyer for Reese Witherspoon says the actress has pleaded no contest to a disorderly conduct charge resulting from a heated confrontation with a state trooper in Atlanta. Municipal Court of Atlanta Deputy Solicitor Ronda Graham said in a statement Friday that Witherspoon entered the plea and paid a $100 fine, resolving the case. But that doesn’t mean the embarrassing episode is over by any stretch. The actress’ drunken, diva-ish tirade was caught on tape for all to see. Lying to a police officer and saying you’re pregnant because you have to wee? Tsk, tsk.

Solving the case

The mystery of Atlanta rapper Chris Kelly’s sudden death is slowly being solved. Fulton County Police spokeswoman Cpl. Kay Lester told E! News that investigators were looking into reports that drugs were involved. A toxicology report is pending.

Hot mess

Let’s hope Charlie Sheen’s twin boys come out OK with all the tumult in their little lives. The 4-year-olds were removed from his ex-wife Brooke Mueller’s home by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, Radar Online reported. Drug use is suspected. Max and Bob will go stay with Sheen’s other ex wife Denise Richards and their half sisters. Mueller, originally from Palm Beach, has been to rehab close to 20 times. Her antics were witnessed on her friend Paris Hilton’s reality show, The World According to Paris.
