REESE & JIM'S WEDDING PLANS!

Reese Witherspoon, 34, is done with the dating game and now doesn't want to play the waiting game. Plans for her wedding to talent agent Jim Toth, 40, are moving quickly. "It will be a short engagement," says a source. "They're ready to start their life together." Adds an insider: The actress is planning a shopping trip with a few close girlfriends to pick out the perfect gown. "She wants to find something really sophisticated and spectacular." And she appears to be getting ready for her dress fittings with regular two-mile jogs and "very strenuous" 90-minute yoga classes. As for their longer-term goals, babies may be on the horizon. According to a source, they "have talked about having kids."

ROYAL WEDDING UPDATE

Kate Middleton has chosen her wedding gown designer. But "it's Miss Middleton's intention to keep the dress a secret for her bridegroom on their wedding day, as is every bride's prerogative," says a Palace spokesman. Still, was there a hint when her mother, Carole, 56, and sister Pippa, 27, were spotted browsing Bruce Oldfield's store in London's swanky Knightsbridge area? While the designer, a favorite of Princess Diana's, had no comment, Elizabeth Emanuel, who codesigned Diana's wedding gown, tells Scoop, "He'd be the perfect choice." Meanwhile the couple may ask guests to donate to charity in lieu of gifts-Prince Charles and Diana received more than 6,000 on their big day.

While Lindsay Lohan spends her post-rehab life lying low at home, Charlie Sheen has been living it up elsewhere. In her new rental townhouse in Venice, Calif., Lohan "seems happy and is doing well," says a source, although "she still doesn't like to be alone at night and has had people over to keep her company." Meanwhile, Sheen returned to Las Vegas for a second straight weekend, this time clowning around at the MGM Grand for Drew Carey's new GSN show Improv-A-Ganza. CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena on Jan. 14, "There is a high level of concern" about his personal life, but "he does his job extremely well."
