Lindsay Lohan: Sex list was part of AA's fifth step

Lindsay Lohan has admitted that a leaked, handwritten list of people she'd had sex with — many of them famous — was part of her fifth step in AA when she was at the Betty Ford Center. 

The actress, whose docu-series on OWN wraps up this Sunday with back-to-back hourlong episodes, was playing a game of "Plead the Fifth" with Andy Cohen on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live." Having already used her one option to "plead the fifth" on on a previous question, she at first answered "I can neither confirm or deny" when he pressed her about the authenticity of the list. 

Then she changed her mind. 

"You know what, I'm going to get serious for a second ...," she said. "That was actually my fifth step in AA, at Betty Ford, and someone when I was moving, during the OWN show, must have taken a photo of it. So that's a really personal thing. And it's really unfortunate that that — because it just, I talk about this during the last episode ... so, 'to be continued.'"

That's...

Sick Miley Cyrus postpones more shows, and boy, that ticks her off

 

Miley Cyrus is starting to sound like an extremely impatient patient. 

Unfortunately, the light at the end of the tunnel might not show up anytime soon for the "Wrecking Ball" singer, who has been hospitalized since Tuesday after a "severe allergic reaction" to an antibiotic prescribed to fight a sinus infection.

With her Friday and Saturday shows in Nashville and Louisville postponed until August, she expressed her displeasure via social media, tweeting early Friday that she was "sick of waking up to needles." 

Her reaction to cephalexin, also known as Keflex, is expected to last five to 27 days, according to her rep, and comes in the middle of her ambitious "Bangerz" tour. She previously had to bail on a Tuesday show in Kansas City, Mo., and Wednesday gig in St. Louis, much to her fans' dismay

Cyrus let fans know along the way that she'd absolutely rather be performing for them than lying in bed, but Thursday saw her lashing out against persistent speculation regarding the "real"...

Idris Elba welcomes a baby son with girlfriend Naiyana Garth

 

Idris Elba and his girlfriend Naiyana Garth welcomed a baby boy on Thursday, the actor announced Friday on Twitter. 

"My Son Winston Elba was born yesterday..Truly Amazing :-)," he wrote, including a black-and-white picture of the new cutie's tiny hand wrapped around his dad's fingertip. 

The British actor, a 2012 Golden Globe winner for "Luther," went public about his relationship with makeup artist Garth last November, though they'd reportedly been dating for several months already. Rumors that Garth was pregnant emerged around the same time.

Winston's birth has to be a moving experience for Elba, 41, who in 2010 welcomed a child he thought was his son, only to find out after taking a paternity test that he wasn't the child's father. 

"The celebration of having a son — from a man's perspective, it's massive," he told GQ in its October issue, commenting on the 2010 events.

Ellen DeGeneres, Chelsea Handler puzzle over Buzzfeed quizzes

The inexplicable addiction to Buzzfeed quizzes and their curious results is baffling even to celebrities -- specifically Ellen DeGeneres and her Thursday guest Chelsea Handler. 

The time-sucking, nonscientific questionnaires enlist quiz-takers to choose from random groupings of items to determine nonessential personality traits. While they're pretty fun and wildly habit-forming, they've also polluted just about every social-media feed and even sparked the comedic ire of some of the first ladies of comedy. Yeah, there's also a quiz about them.

"How does it help you in life to find out what kind of pizza you are?" DeGeneres asked when she brought up the quizzes on her talk show in March. "'Oh, I'm a mushroom pizza. That's why I don't like sailing. That explains it!'"

Rosie O'Donnell drops 50 pounds, posts before-and-after pictures

Rosie O'Donnell has lost almost 50 pounds, she announced Thursday on Twitter, posting a before-and-after photo comparison showing how much progress she's made since last year's gastric-sleeve surgery. 

"Almost 50 lbs off - I can see it," she wrote, captioning the side-by-side shots. In the "after" shot, her face and neck are noticeably thinner.

Her significant weight loss was inspired by a brush with death. The former co-host of "The View" had suffered a life-threatening heart attack in August 2012 after helping an "enormous" woman get out of a car. 

"A few hours later my body hurt, I had an ache in my chest both my arms were sore, everything felt bruised," she wrote on her blog at the time. Though she felt clammy and threw up, she took aspirin and waited until the next day to see a cardiologist. An EKG then revealed a nearly completely blocked artery in her heart. 

"I almost died — and that's not an over-exaggeration," O'Donnell told People that October. "That's a fact."

Chelsea Clinton is pregnant, which means her mom, Hillary Rodham Clinton, is going to be a grandma! 

Of course, Chelsea's husband, Marc Mezvinsky, is going to be a first-time dad and her father, Bill, the former president, will don the "grandpa" title, but it was mother and daughter who were onstage together Thursday in New York City when the former first daughter made her announcement.

Tanee Short, who married the "Scandal" star in July 2005 and separated from him April 7, cited irreconcilable differences and requested full legal and physical custody of the couple's 2-year-old daughter, Ayala, the mag reported.

Valerie Harper not 'cancer free,' but 'cautiously optimistic'

Valerie Harper might not be "cancer free," as a headline screamed Wednesday, but she is "cautiously optimistic" and hopeful about her current health situation. 

The actress, 74, issued a statement clarifying a quote that had appeared in this week's Closer Weekly. Her "cancer free" comment was actually part of a larger anecdote specifically about the results of a full-body scan, she told the magazine, not about her terminal leptomeningeal carcinomatosis.

"I was relaying a story where my doctor had told me that in his 30-year practice, I was the only lepto patient he has seen without other cancers already present," Harper told Closer Weekly on Thursday. 

"I had just had my yearly full-body scan to determine if this sneaky cancer had migrated to other parts of my body," and the results were great. The disease had not spread.

"Right now, what I am is cautiously optimistic about my present condition and I have hope for the future," she said in a separate statementreleased Wednesday...

Tom Cruise dating Laura Prepon? Here's the rumor roundup

Despite reports to the contrary, reps for Tom Cruise and actress Laura Prepon have denied that their clients are dating. 

Cruise's rep shut down rumors by telling the Daily Mail that not only has Cruise, 51, not been dating the "Orange Is the New Black" actress, but the two have never even met.

And a rep for Prepon, 34, told Us Weekly on Thursday that reports linking the pair are "not true."

Gossip Cop also gave the rumor a zero on its "Real or Rumor" scale, citing a source close to the "Mission Impossible" actor saying "they are not dating."

However, reports insisting that the romance was still on have still been swirling online despite denials from both camps.

British mag Grazia first reported the alleged romance in the fall, indicating that the fellow Scientologists had been trying to keep it under wraps.

In November, the pair were reportedly spotted having dinner together at the Manor Hotel in Los Angeles and Cruise picked her up in a vintage car and...
