1. Lindsay Lohan has come clean about her drug addiction for the first time, taking to her Twitter account for a lengthy confession after news broke that she’d failed her first court-ordered drug test since leaving rehab early. “Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test, and if I am asked, I am prepared to appear before Judge Fox next week as a result,” she posted. “Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn’t go away overnight. ... This was certainly a setback for me, but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I’m prepared to face the consequences.” Lohan could again face 30 days in jail for violating probation.
2. Paris Hilton has accepted a plea deal in connection with her arrest last month in Las Vegas for cocaine possession, according to E! News. Hilton pleaded guilty to misdemeanor drug possession and obstructing an officer, and she must complete a drug abuse program, pay a $2,000 fine and serve 200 hours of community service. “We fashioned a resolution which would give us complete control over her future,” District Attorney David Roger says. “If she does not toe the line and stay out of trouble, she will do one year in the Clark County Detention Center.”
3. Javiar Bardem has finally broken his silence about wife Penelope Cruz’s pregnancy. “It is true. I am very happy,” he said when pressed for a comment at a press conference for “Eat Pray Love” in Rome. “Don’t make me say anything else.” When pressed on the challenges of balancing work and family, the tight-lipped actor said, “It is a little too soon for me to be giving any advice. I don’t know yet. But I will find out soon.”
4. “Spartacus” star Andy Whitfield’s cancer has returned, putting his future with the series in jeopardy, according to Popcrunch. Whitfield was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma earlier this year, prompting producers to delay the show’s second season, but he made a quick recovery initially. “It’s with a deep sense of disappointment that I must step aside from such an exceptional project as ‘Spartacus,’” Whitfield says in a statement.
