Michael Lohan plans to open faith-based rehab

He may not have been able to keep his own daughter out of trouble, but Lindsay Lohan's dad Michael Lohan is hoping to help others by opening a faith-based rehab facility in L.A.

"I know this is what God wants me to do first and foremost," 50-year-old Lohan, who has also battled drugs and alcohol, tells Us Weekly. "After seeing what my daughter, myself, and other people I know have been through, it has led me to realize this is my calling and purpose in life."

The center will not have doctors or conduct medical treatments but will instead be a spiritual retreat, focusing on mind, body and soul, and including activities such as yoga and kickboxing.

'Jersey Shore' comes to blows

Remember the days when “Real World” cast members were immediately escorted off set if they laid a hand on one of their housemates? Or, at the very least, the crew would intervene and help break up the fight.

Well, those days are over.

Last night’s episode opened as Snooki embarked on her quest to find the perfect bed to cuddle in - it was basically "Goldilocks" meets “Jersey Shore.” After testing out all the guys’ beds, she finally settled on Vinny’s, which was just right. One thing led to another and…well, we think you can figure out what happened next.

Emma Watson: 'Potter' isn't selling sex

In an interview with Empire magazine, the three stars of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” – Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, who play Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, respectively – opened up about filming, friendships and finally finishing 10 years of hard work. (Oh, and that highly-anticipated kiss scene.)

“Deathly Hollows,” Watson explained to the U.K. publication, is a far cry from the first six movies in the series. First, it’s split into two parts and took 18 months to shoot. Second, it’s much more emotional.

“The emotional stuff is much harder,” Watson told Empire. “These last two films have been on a completely different level in terms of what they’ve demanded from me physically and emotionally.”

Olsen twins' little sister has budding film career

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen may have said bye-bye to the big screen, but their baby sister is just getting started.

Twenty-one-year-old Elizabeth Olsen has landed a starring role opposite English hunk Hugh Dancy in the upcoming indie drama "Martha Marcy May Marlene." She'll play a young woman who goes to live with her big sister and her husband (Dancy) after escaping a cult, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

While the 24-year-old former "Full House" stars continue to focus on their careers as successful clothing designers, Elizabeth - whose earliest acting gig was the 1994 Olsen twins TV flick "How the West Was Fun" - has been busy racking up movie roles.

Besides "Martha Marcy May Marlene," she recently filmed the comedy "Peace, Love & Misunderstanding" alongside an impressive cast that includes Jane Fonda, Catherine Keener, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Chace Crawford.

Jerry Lewis: I'd smack Lindsay Lohan in the mouth

She survived 13 days of jail and 23 days in rehab, but can Lindsay Lohan handle Jerry Lewis?

The 84-year-old comic legend says he has no sympathy for the troubled starlet, and has threatened to haul off and hit her if they ever crossed paths.

"I'd smack her in the mouth if I saw her," Lewis said in a tirade taped by Inside Edition. "I would smack her in the mouth and be arrested for abusing a woman!"

Martha Stewart wants to be the next Larry King

Can Martha Stewart fill Larry King's suspenders as a great TV interviewer? She sure thinks so.

The domestic diva, who conducts a series of heart-to-hearts on the September 19 Hallmark Channel prime-time special "Martha Stewart Presents," revealed that she has designs on becoming a renowned television talker.

"My favorite interviewers are Larry King, 76, and Barbara Walters, 80 - both of whom are kind of retiring," said Stewart, 69. "Who's going to take their place as the serious, great interviewer? I'm throwing my name in there, because I love to talk to people."
