OUT OF REHAB
The actress ends her second stint in rehab—with her dad at her side—and prepares to return to L.A. to film another movie
Lindsay Lohan is out of rehab and heading back to work. Following a nearly two-month stay at Utah's Cirque Lodge treatment center, the 21-year-old actress checked out Oct. 5 with her father, Michael, nearby. "She's moving ahead with her life," Lohan's mother, Dina, tells Scoop. Lohan entered Cirque Lodge after her second DUI bust on July 24, which was 11 days after a six-week stint at Promises rehab. At some point she'll return to L.A. to complete a minimum 24 hours in jail as part of her plea deal and to begin filming Dare to Love Me on Oct. 15, according to a source. And despite reports claiming that Lohan is an insurance liability for film studios, the source says she is insured for this movie.
Until filming begins, Lohan will spend time in Utah. One habit she's not yet kicked? Nightclubs. Hours after leaving Cirque Lodge, an onlooker says Lindsay and three friends did show up at Salt Lake City's Hotel Bar & Nightclub, where Lohan downed a Socko energy drink and Fiji water, and smoked cigarettes. She's also spending time with Riley Giles, whom she met in rehab. The source insists this stint at rehab has changed her: "She's gotten rid of the people around her who were bad influences."
APARTMENT HUNT IN N.Y.C.
Get ready, Gotham: Jessica Simpson is on the prowl for a Manhattan pied-à-terre. "I'm looking at places because my record label is in New York, and I want to be close to that, and I'm singing again," Simpson told Scoop at the Operation Smile 25th Anniversary Gala in Beverly Hills on Oct. 5, shortly after she was spotted apartment hunting in TriBeCa, Greenwich Village and Chelsea. The 27-year-old actress, who viewed pricey condos, said of her intended move, "I'm looking forward to it!"
For years the world has wondered: How is Janet Jackson, 41, thin one day and not so thin the next? Now the wait is over. "I'm writing a book on my journey of weight loss and weight gain," Jackson, who dropped 60 lbs. last year, tells Scoop. In the still-untitled tome, she plans to share what she did "nutrition-wise to get down in size when I needed to." Is the singer, who's been dating music producer Jermaine Dupri for five years, slimming down to fit into a wedding dress? "I don't necessarily need the paper to validate the love that I have," says Jackson, who's now starring in the film Why Did I Get Married? "I've done it twice. The next time—if I do it—I really don't plan on divorcing." Plus, she adds, "I pray this doesn't bite me in the butt, but the third time is a charm."
Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn were briefly reunited on Oct. 6, when the exes were spotted talking closely and quietly for an hour at an L.A. party. "It looked a little awkward at first," an eyewitness observed. "But they started talking and ended up spending an hour alone in deep conversation." "It looked intimate," said a source.
Pam Anderson, who's in Las Vegas starring as Hans Klok's assistant in The Beauty of Magic, vanished in the 90 minutes between shows and re-appeared married to longtime friend and producer Rick Salomon. "It's a big day," Pam told the crowd at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. "Two shows and a wedding!" The newlyweds (she wore a white denim Valentino minidress) exchanged vows at the Mirage hotel in front of some 50 people, including Tobey Maguire and Lukas Haas. Between them it's three previous marriages—and two infamous sex tapes. Hers with former husband Tommy Lee, and his filmed with ex-girlfriend Paris Hilton.
Teri Hatcher may play a naughty nymph onscreen, but offscreen, the Desperate Housewives star admits she's a pretty prudish parent. "I am one of those [moms] who is disgruntled with the film industry," Hatcher, whose daughter Emerson Rose is 9 years old, told Scoop at a High School Musical event in L.A. on Oct. 5. "Every Friday, we think, 'Wouldn't it be great to go to [the movies]? But you go down there, and 13 of the 14 films are PG-13 or R. It's really difficult if you don't believe in super-speeding up your child's rearing." Hatcher's solution? Turn on the TV instead! "My daughter and I watch cooking shows all the time," she says, laughing. "Top Chef is one of our favorites!"
"My age dictates it. I need to be ready for more ... Not three but two would be nice."

Dancing With the Stars
What You Missed ...
Cheetah Girl Sabrina Bryan (right) has a DWTS alum rooting for her: High School Musical's Monique Coleman. Bryan "brings character and skill to the dance," says Coleman, who was in Monday night's audience. The HSM star, who competed in 2006, had no advice for Bryan. "She doesn't need it!"... After receiving high marks for her tango, Jane Seymour got high-fives from her 11-year-old twin sons during the break.... Maksim Chmerkovskiy thinks Mel B. is a bit spacey: "She has a lot on her plate. It's difficult to get her focused for more than 15 seconds. There is zero attention span."

THE DIANA CASE
The inquest into Princess Diana's final hours has offered new insight into the tragic 1997 death of the People's Princess and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed. Jurors in the inquest headed to Paris Oct. 8 to retrace the couple's final steps through the Ritz Hotel, as well as the tunnel where their car crashed. During his opening address Oct. 2-3, coroner Lord Justice Scott Baker revealed Diana was taking birth control pills and she had told her divorce lawyer she believed Queen Elizabeth would abdicate in favor of Charles. The inquest will last another six months, so expect more revelations....
William & Kate's
When Prince William and his sweetheart Kate Middleton left London's Boujis nightclub Oct. 5, the couple's car was allegedly aggressively chased by photographers. William later said he was "concerned by the threatening behavior of the paparazzi." A source says, "To come at the time of the inquest is awful. Hopefully they will now back off." The lovebirds have been spending an increasing amount of time together. Says a friend: "They have something very special."
The singer discovers that some things actually do get better with age
On her new CD, Songs of Mass Destruction, Lennox, a mother of two, sings about the state of the world. The soulful Scot sits down with PEOPLE's Oliver Jones to discuss life as an aging rock star.
You turn 53 in December. How do you feel?
Women are far more freaked out about their faces, their bodies, their knees and their breasts during their teenage years than in middle age. Of course you would love to be strong and supple and all of those things that perhaps you were, but we weren't that satisfied then.
Has your voice changed?
Something shifted a few years ago. I went on tour with Sting, and I was surprised to find it was stronger, more raw. It was like [it reached its] potential.
Your songs are constantly cited as great breakup music.
My music has been a reference point for a lot of [moments], whether it be divorce, bereavement. But it's really about life and change. Nothing on the planet lasts. But we all want to pretend that it's permanent. I think you have to just find a way to keep your sanity in all that. But I am not sure it helped anybody.
The Eurythmics were technological pioneers. Do you own a BlackBerry?
I have a love-hate relationship. I just had to get some computer lessons, otherwise I felt I couldn't be part of this great communication. But personally, I am a technophobe.
