In less than 24 hours, barring any last minute brushes with the law, Lindsay Lohan will be off probation for the first time in four years. That means no more morgue duty, no more court-ordered therapy, and no more jail time. She's looking to get back to work and start fresh, but it her criminal record is already threatening to throw a wrench in the works.

She's slated to play Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime movie called Liz and Dick, but it's shooting in Toronto. Because of her DUIs and theft conviction, she's having trouble getting a Canadian work permit. Ruh roh. It looks like once she's officially clear tomorrow and after her lawyer jumps through all the necessary paperwork hoops, she'll probably get a permit in the end. Still, let us all remember, crime doesn't pay—especially if you're an actor who ever wants to work in Canada. [E!, TMZ]

We may still be grieving the loss of Amy Winehouse, but her estate has finally been settled. She had no will when she died last year, and it's been determined that all of the money will go to her parents. She was worth about $6.7 million when she died, and after taxes and debts are paid, her parents will get $4.66 million. Her father, Mitch, will be the administrator of her estate. Her ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, will get nothing, which makes a lot of sense, seeing as they were divorced when she died. [CBS News]

Rihanna would like you to know that she is not having a torrid love affair with Ashton Kutcher—or anyone else, for that matter. When a reporter boldly asked her at a press event if Kutcher was going to come visit her in London, she replied, "Wow, how disappointing was that question. I'm happy and I'm single, if that's what you're really asking." Duly noted. But seriously are you sleeping with him, RiRi? You would tell us if you were, riiiight? [E!]

Well, it's official. Today Peter Facinelli filed for divorce from Jennie Garth. The filing says they've been separated since January 1st, and it also says he is seeking joint custody of their three daughters. Shock of shocks, Garth has told People that she was not happy about getting a divorce: "I was very resistant. I didn't want it to happen. It took me some time to come to peace with it." Apparently things started to go bad when he was filming Twilight, and they had to spend so much time apart. But the question remains, does that mean he was spending his time in the arms of someone else, as the rumor mill has suggested? [TMZ, People]

  • Carson Daly made a very unfortunate and unnecessary comment today about gay people. Speaking about the pilot that freaked out yesterday on a JetBlue flight, Daly said, "Most of the people were on their way to some sort of security conference in Las Vegas ... it was like a bunch of dudes and well trained dudes ... thank god." He then went on, "With my luck, it would be like ... 'this is the flight going to [the gay pride parade] in San Francisco ... I mean, that would be my colleagues." He then did a lovely stereotypically "gay" voice and said, "Uh, we're headed down to Vegas for the floral convention." GET IT?! Gay people aren't brave or tough and wouldn't be able to handle anything scary. Ugh. He later apologized on Twitter: "This morning on my radio show I attempted to make fun of myself & offended others by mistake. I sincerely apologize." Whatever. Please keep "jokes" like these to yourself from now on. [TMZ]

    It's hard to believe that little Blue Ivy™ Carter is already 11 weeks old. It seems like just yesterday that angels descended from the heavens and harp music filled the streets. Anyway, Beyonce took her bundle of joy out for a walk in a fur sling, because obviously. Also, I just realized that now when I say Blue Ivy's name in my head, I hear it as though Maya Rudolph's Beyonce were saying it. Fun times. [Us]

    Does LeAnn Rimes have a baby bump? Sure doesn't look like it, but her husband Eddie Cibrian dodged a pregnancy question from a reporter. So therefore she is 110% with child. [E!]

    A little while ago we found out that Josh Lucas had secretly gotten married and was expecting a baby. Now we know his new wife's full name, Jessica Ciencin Henriquez, and we have a picture of them at their wedding. Obviously, they both look magnificent because it is against the laws of nature for famous people to look bad at their weddings. [People]

    Francophiles, it's your lucky day. Bradley Cooper is no longer dating Zoe Saldana and thus is now free to speak French to you all night long. [HuffPo]

    Oooohwhee. Mad Men fans, prepare to start hyperventilating. Series creator Matthew Weiner is set to direct his first movie, and it's going to star Owen Wilson (eh) and Zach Galafinakis (yay!). It's called You Are Here and will be about "a free-wheeling bachelor and as his bi-polar best friend who take a road trip after a family death." Wait, wasn't Zach already in a movie with a fairly similar premise with Robert Downey Jr.? Whatever, as long as the song "Zou Bisou Bisou" does not appear in this movie, sign us all up. [Reuters]

    For those who desire to boost their booty, Coco is handing out advice on how to get a butt like hers:

    There are also three muscles you have to work. The three muscles are the top of the butt, side of the butt, middle of the butt. So you will have to work all three heavily to get a booty. The problem is women think it's just the gluteus maximus, but no, there are the others that you have to focus on and put some weight on. I go to the gym and leg press 400 pounds, no joke.

    So, in other words, you have to work your ass off to get an ass like Coco's. [Buzzfeed Shift]

For awhile I wanted to bang Ryan Seacrest. Hot + good work ethic. But then I started listening to morning radio in LA and he is just so stupid sounding. So I started listening to Carson, because he is more entertaining. He is, however, very sexist and ignorant. I do think he could be enlightened though, and I wish someone would make him aware of how he sounds. I heard that this morning and was like "please please don't continue this" but he did anyway.

I like Megan. I find her infinitely more interesting and less annoying than the Natalie Portmans (who, let's be realistic, is who she is because she is insanely gorgeous) or Olivia Munns. There is something very honest about her.
