Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': More rehab for Lindsay

The "Showbiz Tonight" team was up late last night and back up bright and early this morning getting the latest on whether or not Lindsay Lohan was headed back to jail.

Late last night, the emails and phone calls were flying as we tried to figure out if Lindsay left the Betty Ford clinic after a 24 day stay. This morning we confirmed she'd checked out of rehab and was headed to court to face off with the judge.

"Showbiz Tonight's" Kareen Wynter was live at the L.A. courthouse and said there was a feeding frenzy as photographers tripped over themselves when Lohan showed up 30 minutes early. In the end, though, the judge handed down an order for more rehab until January 3.

Delusions of grandeur on the D.C. 'Housewives' reunion

"The Real Housewives of D.C." was nothing if it wasn't a season full of craziness and awkward moments, and the reunion special was no different, giving us two hours of more awkward moments and crazy explanations.

Let's deal with part one of this craziness first. With a little help from Andy Cohen and some viewer comments, Stacie and Cat got into it over race and whether Cat is racist or just uncomfortable in unfamiliar situations.  Stacie pointed out that she’s not the one who brought up the word “racist.”

They also followed up on the story of Stacie trying to find her biological father. Going to the Nigerian embassy paid off. She did get in contact with him and she’s planning to go to Nigeria to meet him in person. She talked about how wonderful it was that he was excited to make a connection with her.

MTV's 'Skins' to premiere in January

MTV's 'Skins' to premiere in January

If the Parents Television Council thought that "Glee" photo shoot in GQ was racy, wait till they see the buzzed-about new trailer for MTV's upcoming teen series "Skins."

Based on a hit British series of the same name, the dramedy takes a gritty look at the lives of a group of nine teenage friends. The UK show – which featured "Slumdog Millionaire" star Dev Patel and "A Single Man" actor Nicholas Hoult – was packed with sex, drugs and nudity, and judging by the trailer that's hit the web, the MTV version will be equally edgy.

In the promo, one character is seen phoning up his female classmates – one of whom is in the bathtub – and urging them to help his 16-year-old pal lose his virginity. Elsewhere, characters are shown popping pills and partying in a warehouse.

'Glee's' Jane Lynch opens up on marriage

Unlike her character on “Glee,” Jane Lynch says she’s actually really mellow. But that didn’t keep the woman behind TV villain Sue Sylvester from donning a gold track jacket and gripping a megaphone on the November cover of More magazine.

In the mag, which will hit newsstands on October 28, Lynch dishes on her relationship with new wife Lara Embry. The pair wed on May 31.

“I shouldn’t say this, but I’d never dated anyone that I wanted to marry,” she said. “ I didn’t think it was going to be out there for me. But the minute we were married, I felt the difference: I felt like I am no longer alone.”

Mel Gibson out, Liam Neeson in for 'Hangover 2'

Mel Gibson in "The Hangover 2"? Not anymore, says director Todd Phillips.

Though the troubled 54-year-old actor had been confirmed to do a cameo as a Bangkok tattoo artist in the follow-up to the 2009 hit comedy, he has now been cut from the film.

“I thought Mel would have been great in the movie and I had the full backing of Jeff Robinov and his team," Phillips told CNN in a statement. "But I realize filmmaking is a collaborative effort, and this decision ultimately did not have the full support of my entire cast and crew.”
