from pr-inside:
Hollywood actress KIRSTEN DUNST has become the latest star to reportedly check into rehab - joining the same Utah medical facility as EVA MENDES.
According to U.S. magazine Star, the 25-year-old was admitted to Cirque Lodge after a week of wild partying at last month's (Jan08) Sundance Film Festival.
The facility is also the same centre where Lindsay Lohan spent last summer (07) for substance abuse problems.
A source tells Star, "She (Dunst) desperately needed help. She seemed to be intoxicated when she checked in because she was acting really erratic. She was extremely emotional, constantly breaking down in tears.
"She not in a good place right now, but thankfully, she's getting the help she needs." Dunst recently dismissed rumours she was on the verge of a breakdown after reports surfaced of her alleged "erratic" behaviour at Sundance, with sources claiming her "odd" antics left friends apologising to other partygoers. But representatives for the Spider-Man star denied the reports insisting, "Kirsten is fine."

That makes two this week that we have heard of....

TMZ has learned "Designing Women" star Delta Burke checked herself into a psychiatric hospital last week for depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder and "hoarding."

We truly hope poor Delta comes out... well... put together again.

Now Dear Kirsten... who in Hollywood is next...

Funny thing is... sweet Kirsten checks in ... bless her heart.. and Britney, poor thing, checks out...

The following statement was released to CNN's Anderson Cooper by Jamie and Lynne Spears, Britney's parents:

Britney Spears

from TMZ:
"As parents of an adult child in the throws (sic) of a mental health crisis, we were extremely disappointed this morning to learn that over the recommendation of her treating psychiatrist, our daughter Britney was released from the hospital that could best care for her and keep her safe. We are deeply concerned about our daughter's safety and vulnerability and we believe her life is presently at risk. There are conservatorship orders in place created to protect our daughter that are being blatantly disregarded. We ask only that the court's orders be enforced so that a tragedy may be averted."

What a rehab, psyched out month.. and we are only half way through... maybe it has something to do with the writers strike? Is this what happens when actors do not have any writers to give them character?...hmmm...

Coco Scene! Heath Ledger.. Cause of Death.. Toxicology Reports In
The NYC medical examiner has finished the toxicology report following the death of Heath Ledger, and has just ruled that the actor's death was caused by "acute intoxication by the combined effects of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam, and doxylamine."

The NYPD found five medications in Ledger's apartment after his death, including anti-anxiety medications alprazolam (Xanax), diazepam (Valium) and Lorazepam (Ativan). The sleeping medication zopiclone (Lunesta) and the sedative temazepam (Restoril) -- which is used by people with "debilitating insomnia" -- were also found. Doxylamine is an antihistamine used in the short-term treatment of insomnia. "We have concluded that the manner of death is accident, resulting from the abuse of prescription medications." said the medical examiner.

Poor Heath.. our thoughts of course with his family... especially sweet little Matilda. Finally, there is an answer...

Coco Scene! Rehab/psyche ward round up and a few more tidbits...

So, Britney is back at the hospital again... this time confined to the Psyche ward. Any surprise that it looks like a complete break down? At least this time it looks as if her parents are finally stepping up and taking charge. Daddy has the reins on her money and care... after all dear Brit clearly had no control even when she was in charge...

Her parents are not exactly June and Ward Cleaver... but ... they are finally doing something... poor Brit...

from Eonline:
Grey's Anatomy
star Justin Chambers voluntarily checked himself into UCLA Medical Center earlier this week to be treated for severe exhaustion, the actor's rep confirmed.

The 37-year-old father of five went to the hospital "to get help with a pre-existing sleeping disorder," his rep said. "He asks that the press respect his privacy and that of his family at this time."

Chambers entered the hospital Monday and left Wednesday, missing UCLA's newest patient, Britney Spears by just a few hours.

But while that latter case is a whole other story, Chambers apparently was feeling flush enough to spend time with his buddies upon his release, according to a source who saw Dr. Alex Karev at trendy Los Feliz bistro La Poubelle later that evening.

"He was there around midnight, drinking with a couple of friends. He looked upset, but not in a breakdown type of way," the witness told E! News, adding that the former model is a fixture on the hipster scene in that neighborhood, but usually with his wife, Keisha, and kids in tow.

"They are the cutest family," E! was told. "He seems like a decent guy."

We are of course wishing him best of luck. 5 kids... a break down might be understandable!

LOS ANGELES (AFP) — Hollywood actress Eva Mendes has entered a rehabilitation center to tackle substance-abuse problems, celebrity magazine People reported on its website Friday.

The 33-year-old star of "Hitch" and "We Own the Night," has been undergoing treatment at Utah's Cirque Lodge center for several weeks, the report said.

"Eva has been working hard for the past year and made a positive decision to take some much-needed time off to proactively attend to some personal issues that, while not critical, she felt deserved some outside professional support," a representative for Mendes told People. "Out of respect for Eva's privacy, we do not wish to discuss further details."

Cirque Lodge was in the headlines last year after actress Lindsay Lohan checked into the facility following dual arrests for drink-driving.

We are starting to see a pattern .... issues... media attention... Bless dear Eva's heart...

LATEST: Eighties teen hearthrobs NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK are reportedly recording a new album in secret.
Singer Danny Woods recently attempted to shoot down increasing rumours the boyband is planning to reunite, insisting there had been "no discussion" of a comeback.
But a track was uploaded onto the group's newly-active official website last week (ends1Feb08) - and sources tell the New York Post the five-piece have almost completed work on a new LP, with the help of legendary music mogul Irving Azoff.
An insider tells the newspaper, "They've been going to a studio in Orlando and recording the album. It's just about done." NKOTB - Woods, Jonathan Knight, Donnie Wahlberg, Joey McIntyre and Jordan Knight - sold over 50 million albums before splitting in 1994.

We must admit... Joey is a doll... first the Spice Girls... now the New Kids on The Block! What will Dancing with the Stars bring on next???!
PARIS HILTON is set for a racy new TV role as a member of the cast of lesbian series THE L WORD.
The socialite-turned-actress has revealed she's in talks to guest on the acclaimed U.S. cable tv show - and her spot may lead to a more regular part.
Hilton admits she's thrilled about the prospect of appearing on the programme but she has no idea whether she'll have to play gay or bare all in the steamy series.
She tells, "It's true. I have no idea what kind of character I'll be playing, but it's a good show."

This really shows us the effect jail time has had on dear Paris...oh well.. it makes for interesting tv.

Coco Scene! Katherine McPhee Married!

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Feb. 3 (UPI) -- Pop singer Katharine McPhee has married her producer boyfriend, Nick Cokas, in Beverly Hills, Calif., People magazine reported.

The "American Idol" star's representative confirmed to People that the 23-year-old singer had married her 42-year-old boyfriend Saturday at the Beverly Hills Presbyterian Church.

McPhee, who was the runner-up on the fifth season of the hit Fox reality series, told People her wedding was the perfect occasion.

"(Nick) is the love of my life," McPhee said. "This is a once in a lifetime occasion and everything is just perfect."

The couple met in 2005 while working on a Los Angeles theater production of "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir." They went from being just friends to becoming romantically involved -- and became engaged last year after Cokas proposed with a custom-designed engagement ring, People said.

This is all kinds of strange... makes us think of Mariah Carey's first marriage to Tommy Mottola...Mariah was 24 and Tommy was 43...

Coco Scene! Posh ends The Spice Girls tour to pursue Fashion

Victoria Beckham

LATEST: VICTORIA BECKHAM has been blamed for the cancellation of the last leg of the SPICE GIRLS' reunion tour - because the singer has decided to retire from the music industry.
The British pop star was apprehensive about embarking on the comeback tour and only agreed to it so her young sons Brooklyn, eight, Romeo, five, and Cruz, two, could see her onstage.
She says, "I was very nervous about going back into the Spice Girls because I didn't want to send out a confused message. The reason I decided to do the tour was to show my kids that mummy was a pop star once." And she admits the reason why she is quitting the band after their final show in Toronto, Canada later this month (Feb08) is to pursue her career as a fashion designer.
Beckham adds, "I've been thinking about this for a long time. I'm not in the music industry any more. I'm in the fashion industry. I'm putting together a team of people now so it will be my main project when I finish this tour in a month." The fashion icon insists she has no regrets about her time in the Spice Girls or reuniting with her bandmates for the world tour, but she'll always "cringe" at her pop star looks and some of the outfits she had to wear.
She explains, "I like to think it was all good at the time. But I'll look at the pictures and think, 'My God, look at all that bloody make-up!' or 'Look at that hair!' So I'll cringe a little bit.
"I realise that made me who I am now. I'm proud of that." The group announced on Friday (01Feb08) that shows in China, Australia and Argentina would be scrapped.

Well ... Posh Spice has always been a show stopper. As far as the fashion designer career path.. Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise's protegee.. oops we meant wife.. has certainly benefitted from Victoria's advice... but ... perhaps Posh needs to focus on being on Mr. Blackwell's best dressed list rather than his worst dressed list.

Coco Scene! Sarah Jessica Parker Produces New Reality Show
SEX AND THE CITY star SARAH JESSICA PARKER is set to lend her name to an upcoming reality TV competition for aspiring artists.

Pretty Matches, the actress' production firm, has teamed up with the producers behind hit U.S. reality programmes Top Chef and Project Runway for a series that will see 12 visual artists tackle different disciplines - such as sculpting and painting - for the chance to win a gallery show, cash prize and a sponsored tour around the U.S.
The as-yet-untitled series will feature a panel of the world's top art critics, who will rate the contestants' work.

Just what we needed...another reality show... I guess while the writers are out picketing... we have to watch something. Seems a little too New York to pique our interests...

At least it isn't another story about how Britney is totally losing her mind ... in public.
