Michael Lohan opening women-only rehab; Amy Winehouse debuts fashion line

By Liz Kelly

Would you trust this man with your mental health? (AP)

Three celeb-centric stories on our radar this afternoon ...

1. Michael Lohan opening rehab for women?Lohan -- a former Wall Street trader and two-time jail inmate -- plans to open a rehab facility in Pasadena, Calif. "The rehab will treat only women, not men," Lohan told "I'm working on fine tuning the therapists and doctors but the financing is in place and it's going to be very religiously oriented." We can think of one woman who probably won't check in: daughter Lindsay, who is currently rehabbing at the Betty Ford Clinic. [Radar Online]

2. Amy Winehouse debuts fashion line: The erstwhile train wreck teamed up with the Fred Perry label to create a range of 17 items -- from dresses to the company's signature polo shirts. Winehouse also tells U.K. Glamour she's been drug-free for three years. "I literally woke up one day and was like, 'I don't want to do this any more,' " said Winehouse in the magazine.

3. Rumor Mill: Lady Gaga spends thousands on ghostbusters: Heck, it's October and Halloween's not too far off, so we'll go ahead and give this some space. The eccentric "Alejandro" singer Lady Gaga has reportedly spent thousands of dollars making sure she's protected from malevolent spirits while on the road. According to London's Evening Standard, Gaga has a team of paranormal investigators scope out her hotel rooms before she'll agree to enter and has also shelled more than $40,000 for electro magnetic field meters to detect ghosts. No word on whether the equipment is an effective fame monster deterrent. [London Evening Standard]

Bonus: Twitter exchange of the day [via Perez Hilton]:

iHeartMtnDEW: @frankiemuniz ur acting is just, awful. sorry but, it is.

frankiemuniz: @iHeartMtnDEW Yeah, but being retired with $40,000,000.00 at 19 has not been awful. Good luck moving out of your moms house before youre 35.

Lohan's rehab is almost creepy....ewwww..

Does Amy Winehouse's line include ripped fishnet hose, and torn skirts for that fallen-down-drunk look?

Gack! No wonder Lilo (or somebody) barred him from the Betty Ford facility.

"Fine tuning the doctors and therapists" Are they all women too? Is that what they're calling it now?

"almost creepy"?

It's so effin' creepy I will spend the next three weeks trying to figure out how to make a "Michael Lohan Women's Only Rehab" Hallowe'en costume.

Hmmm, let's see, religiously-oriented rehab clinic, established and run by a man, for women only. That's like cult-meets-Dr. Pimp, and it's clearly all about the money. That's not creepy so much as vile-skeevy. Memo to Michael Lohan: stay classy and stick with second-rate Hamptons nightclubs.

The Amy Winehouse fashion line had better include ballet slippers and hair ornaments, too.

How will Fred Perry make any money on this clothing line, I mean clients will exclusively wear the one pair of ballet flats and the white wife beater with a light dusting of powder for a period of not less than 2 years.
