- The big Hollywood gossip this week, considered newsworthy enough even to rise above the post- Golden Globe babble about clothes and parties, is that actress Lindsay Lohan has checked herself into a rehab facility. As Erik Davis reported earlier this week, this means that shooting has been postponed on the film I Know Who Killed Me, in which she was set to play twin sisters. Details on the story abound in the media, from descriptions of Wonderland Center, the rehab facility, to quotes from Lohan's mom being all supportive. Once the news quieted down over her check-in, I figured we were in for a Lohan-news-free month, but celebrity news reporters are already monitoring her comings and goings, even if it's just to a doctor's office.
