Lindsay Lohan‘s latest sentence calls for her to enter a 90-day rehab program by mid-May, but why the delay? According to Radar Online, it’s because the troubled actress didn’t want to miss a good concert. “Lindsay was adamant that she not be forced to go to rehab until after the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in the Palm Springs area on successive weekends in April,” a source says. “Lindsay loves going to the musical festival, and she’s determined to go this year. She didn’t want a little thing like rehab to get in her way of attending. Linds refused to sign off on any deal that would have prevented her from going to Coachella, period. Yes, it’s that important to her, for some strange reason.”

James Franco insists he and Anne Hathaway have made peace with each other after their disastrous Oscars hosting gig two years ago. “Anne and I made up, by the way. Let’s just get that on the record,” Franco told Howard Stern during an interview. “It was a really hard time after the Oscars. She wasn’t mad at me, I don’t think. She didn’t say she was mad at me for what happened. The critics were so nasty.” The “Spring Breakers” star also addressed a rumor that he’d turned down an offer to sleep with Lindsay Lohan. “I don’t want to, like, brag about it. I don’t know how that got out,” Franco said. “She was having issues even then, so you feel weird. Honestly, she was a friend. I’ve met a lot of people that are troubled, and sometimes you don’t want to do that.”

Miley Cyrus and fiancé Liam Hemsworth are reunited after his four-week visit to his native Australia, and all the speculation about their relationship status “has caused a lot of stress” for them, according to E! News. “There are some serious problems going on, but seeing them together, they do genuinely love each other and they really do want to work it out,” a source says. “His trip to Australia was a way for them to figure out what they wanted to do and have time to think for themselves.”

A recent TMZ report suggested there might be a happy ending for Dennis Quaid and wife Kimberly, saying that the pair were reconciling despite Dennis filing for divorce in November. But not so fast: “It’s not true,” the actor’s rep tells E! News. “They are divorcing.” Kimberly was the first to file for divorce back in March 2012, but she canceled the filing two months later as the couple tried patching things up with an anniversary trip to Bora Bora. The reconciliation didn’t last long, though, as they separated in October, a month before Dennis’ filing.

How many women exactly has 86-year-old Playboy founder Hugh Hefner bedded over the years? “How could I possibly know? Over a thousand, I’m sure,” Hefner tells Esquire magazine. “There were chunks of my life when I was married, and when I was married I never cheated. But I made up for it when I wasn’t married. You have to keep your hand in.” For those keeping track at home, as of December Hefner is once again married, this time to 26-year-old Playmate Crystal Harris.
