Rachel Zoe pregnant?; George Michael heads to rehab

Three celeb-centric stories on our radar this afternoon ... Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe attends the Louis Vuitton Ready-to-Wear A/W 2009 fashion show. (Getty Images) 1. She may weigh all of 85 pounds, but according to Us Weekly, that hasn't stopped super-skinny stylist to the stars Rachel Zoe from getting pregnant. Zoe and metrosexual saint of a husband, Rodger Berman, are reportedly telling friends that Zoe can't travel, and she was spotted sipping "water with lemon" at a recent event. Which, of course, must mean she's pregnant. I'll believe it when she's actually spotted eating food. [Us Weekly] 2. George Michael is headed to rehab just days after his release from prison for -- and I quote -- "crashing into a London branch of Snappy Snaps in his car, having been smoking cannabis." The former Wham frontman, who has had a string of run-ins with the law on both sides of...

Lisa Rinna's casting couch close call; Keith Richards gave drug advice to Amy Winehouse

Updated at 4 p.m. ET. Three celeb-centric stories on our radar this afternoon... 1. Lisa Rinna's new book, "Starlit," includes a fictionalization of what Rinna described to PopEater's Rob Shuter as a casting couch nightmare based on her own experience as a young actress. "I lost a role on a BIG TV series because I wouldn't bend over a chair in a producer's office for 'just a quickie,'" Rinna says in the interview. "'Just pull your panties down and bend over and the role is yours,' he said to me." Years later when Rinna bumped into the same producer on a red carpet she reportedly told him, "I know everyone in this town and if you ever do what you did to me again to anyone else I will tell everyone your dirty secret." Gwyneth Paltrow also recently spoke out about her own close encounter with a casting couch offer....

Larry Hagman wins CitiGroup payday; Bristol Palin's video debut

Three celeb-centric stories on our radar this afternoon... Larry Hagman throws fake dollars during a photocall at June's Monte Carlo television festival in Monaco. (Reuters) 1. Larry Hagman's CitiGroup payday: Larry Hagman, who those of us born before 1975 may remember as the diabolical J.R. Ewing from TV's "Dallas," today won a massive payday from Citigroup Inc. In 2009, Hagman accused the company of "a breach of fiduciary duty and breach of contract, fraud by misrepresentation and omission, failure to supervise and violation of federal and state law." A federal panel agreed and awarded the actor "$10 million in punitive damages that Citi must pay to charities selected by Hagman, $1.1 million in compensatory damages and nearly $440,000 in legal fees," according to Reuters. [MSNBC] 2. Bristol Palin's video debut: In addition to clogging her way around a ballroom on "Dancing With the Stars," Bristol Palin -- daughter of erstwhile...

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

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 RadarOnline.com. "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]...

Courtney Love quits Twitter (again); Wyclef Jean enters academia

Courtney Love. (Getty Images) Three celeb-centric stories on our radar this afternoon... 1. Courtney Love breaks up with Twitter (again): Around noon Eastern time today, Courtney Love posted this succinct tweet: "I'm off twitter, that photo was meant for a boy friend." So apparently the naked-ish photos that Love uploaded last week -- the NSFW ones in which she reclines on a chair wearing only a pair of panties -- were a mistake. They've since been removed. Surprisingly, these equally unappetizing pix were apparently not mistakes. Now we wait and see: can the compulsive Tweeter really stay away this time? Love previously quit Twitter in October 2009 and May of this year. [@CourtneyLoveUK] Two more stories after the jump......
