ANNOUNCED
On June 20, CBS announced Dan Rather is leaving the network. The former anchor, 74, stepped down from The CBS Evening News last year, months after his controversial report on President Bush's National Guard service was revealed to have been based on suspect documents. "He's truly a 'reporter's reporter,'" said the network. "His legacy cannot be replicated." ... Jay-Z has called for a boycott of Cristal champagne, a favorite among hip-hoppers, after the company's managing director, Frédéric Rouzaud, suggested he'd rather not have their business. "What can we do?" the Cristal chief told The Economist. "We can't forbid people from buying it."

IN TREATMENT
Rolling Stones guitarist Ron Wood checked into a London rehabilitation clinic for treatment of alcohol abuse. Wood, 59, has long battled drinking problems, having completed a rehab stint last year.

Oil heir Brandon Davis, the ex-boyfriend of The O.C. star Mischa Barton, recently went into a Malibu rehab facility. Davis's rep had no comment.

UPDATE
Kate Moss can sleep a little easier these days. Authorities announced June 15 that the supermodel wouldn't be charged in relation to photos published last year of her allegedly snorting cocaine (PEOPLE, Oct. 10, 2005). Moss, 32, was cleared due to insufficient evidence. Said prosecutor Rene Barclay to the AP: "In the absence of any forensic evidence, or direct eyewitness evidence about the substance in question, its precise nature could not be established." ... A Martinez, Calif., jury convicted Susan Polk, the housewife accused of killing her psychotherapist husband in 2002, of second-degree murder June 16. The case attracted wide media interest because Polk, 48, had been treated by Felix, 70, while still a teenager and then married him a decade later (PEOPLE, March 13, 2006).

GREY'S MATRIMONY
The direct approach worked for musician Josh Kelley last spring when he met Grey's Anatomy's Katherine Heigl on the set of his video for "Only You." "At the end of the shoot, I said, 'You're gonna eat with us, and you can't say no,'" said Kelley, 26. He made another offer she couldn't refuse when he recently proposed. (No wedding date has been set.) Still, it's Kelley's subtler side that helped win Heigl, 27. When he wrote "Katie's Song" for her, "it was one of the most thrilling things," she said. "It makes me really like him bad."
