Thursday gossip roundup: Rihanna and Chris Brown back together?

Love in a hopeless place?

It doesn’t look like Demi Moore’s stay at a Utah treatment facility will come to an end anytime soon. “Demi is really doing well in rehab. She was about to hit rock bottom but now things are looking up for her,” a source tells Radar Online. “Demi has been doing so well in treatment but the people around her aren’t expecting she’ll get out yet, she has a lot of work to do still to be and stay healthy.”

Lindsay Lohan finally had a good day in court at her latest probation hearing. “Miss Lohan, you’re in the home stretch,” Judge Stephanie Saunter told the actress, according to TMZ. “The probation officer is pleased with your progress. You seem to be getting your life back on track, and that’s what we’ve all hoped for.” Lohan still has to return to court in a month for another checkup and complete 14 more hours of community service, but Judge Saunter did give her permission to leave the state of California for work, meaning Lohan is clear to host “Saturday Night Live” next week.

Bobby Brown is reportedly looking to write a tell-all memoir about his time with Whitney Houston — but it’s not the first time he’s had the idea, according to the Huffington Post. “Back in 2008, the interest in a book on Whitney Houston wasn’t that great. Whitney had fallen off the radar back then,” a source says. “But now, following her tragic death, the market has changed. Now is the time for a book that details an honest look into the life of Whitney.” Friends of the late singer aren’t surprised by Brown’s supposed interest: “This is a man who left his ex-wife’s funeral because he didn’t like his seats and went to a paying gig that night,” one pal says. “He didn’t get on stage that night because he needed to sing his greatest hits or because Whitney would have wanted him to entertain his fans, he did it to get a paycheck — the same reason he now wants to write a tell-all book.”

Reese Witherspoon
is up for the idea of having a baby with new husband Jim Toth, according to Hollyscoop. “I’d love that,” the Oscar-winner says. “I feel really good and I’m at a really good place in my life.” Witherspoon already has two children — 12-year-old Ava and 8-year-old Deacon — with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, and she admits another kid would mean more people to embarrass around the house. “The other day I was dancing around the house when they came in and literally stared at me like, ‘Oh my God, that’s so embarrassing,’” she says of her children. “But I didn’t stop. You can’t stop dancing.”

Jessica Simpson is having a baby girl, sources speculate — and her recent shopping trip to L.A.’s Bel Bambini boutique suggests they’re right. “Jessica and her mom [Tina Simpson] spent over an hour at the store,” an observer tells People magazine. “She took her time picking out the perfect baby items.” And those items all happened to be of the pink variety, the source adds.

Rihanna and Chris Brown seem determined to get back together — both professionally and personally —  and that reportedly has friends of both performers worried, according to TMZ. Sources tell the website that Rihanna is still head over heels for Chris and would’ve already gotten back together with him were it not for the media and fan objections. “You can’t hold back love,” a source says.
