Tina Fey

Her therapist takes Visa?

Lindsay Lohan has reportedly started therapy for her issues, as ordered by the court — and just in time, as the deadline for the troubled actress to start treatment is later this week, according to E! Online. During a court appearance last month, Lohan had told the judge she was trying to find the cash to pay for therapy. In response, the judge told Lohan’s lawyer that the actress “needs to find an individual therapist that takes a credit card.”

Welcome, Penelope Athena!

“30 Rock” star Tina Fey and husband Jeff Richmond welcomed their second daughter last week, her rep confirms to Us Weekly. Penelope Athena was born Aug. 10, joining her big sister, 5-year-old Alice. Fey wrote in her memoir, “Bossypants,” that she felt compelled to give Alice a sibling: “I thought that raising an only child would be the norm in Manhattan, but my daughter is the only child in her class without a sibling. Most kids have at least two,” she wrote. “Who will be my daughter’s family when my husband and I are dead from stress-induced cankers? She must have a sibling.”

Hilary Duff is pregnant

Hilary Duff and husband Mike Comrie are expecting their first baby, Duff, 23,  announced on her website yesterday. The post — which celebrated her one-year anniversary to the Pittsburgh Penguins player — exclaimed, “We also want to share the exciting news that…BABY MAKES THREE!!! We are extremely happy and ready to start this new chapter of our lives.” In a recent interview with Metro, the star said she wanted to wait to start a family.  “We’ve only been married a year, and he plays hockey so he’s away from September to April, and we don’t really get that much time together. So we’re looking to wait. I still want to work more,”?she told us. Looks like she changed her mind?
