Tiger Woods reportedly entered rehab for sex addiction last week.

Numerous sources say he is receiving treatment at Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services in Hattiesburg, Miss., and that it's strictly a solo endeavor.

The golfer's wife, Elin Nordegren, has stayed away from the facility and not seen her husband since he was admitted, as speculation continues about their future.

No need for her to visit. The P.I. tailing him should report back.

Tiger also has no roommate, at his request, during his stay at the facility, which is considered to be one of the best sex addiction treatment centers in the U.S.

REHABBING SEX ADDICT: If recent reports are true, Tiger Woods is definitely the biggest star in the history of sex addiction rehab. You missed out, Dr. Drew.

Tiger has been linked to at least 11 women in one of the most shocking and sordid sex scandals of all time. Rumors of other, unrevealed mistresses are still surfacing.

His affair with Rachel Uchitel was exposed by the National Enquirer and led to a huge fight with Elin Woods, which led to the revelation of the golf great's secret life.

While he has not been seen publicly since Thanksgiving, Woods is said to be pulling out all the stops to save his marriage against all odds. Can it possibly be done?

Maybe. Elin is believed to be still on the fence. Despite being photographed sans wedding ring, she has made no statements about the future of their marriage.

Rumors of Woods entering rehab follow reports last month suggesting he would do just that in January as a step toward reconcilation with Elin. So stay tuned.

The commissioner in the Britney Spears conservatorship case has ordered the star to appear next week in person after she skipped out on Friday's appearance.

Commissioner Reva Goetz is livid about what happened two days ago, when Britney was due in court at 1:30 for a status hearing but declined to show up.

Spears' people didn't want her to show because Britney was getting her nails done and reading celebrity news magazines would be besieged by reporters.

Pretty Brit

On the plus side, Britney Spears was seen smiling for once!

No word on whether the real reason for Britney bailing was her hating her body, but she will be there next week for a hearing - or else. Or else what? Something!

Commissioner Goetz, unmoved by the star's no-show, said "The court was supposed to meet with Ms. Spears this afternoon and there was a misunderstanding. I'm going to continue the matter until next Friday at 1:30 and she will be here."

The conservatorship was extended in December, meaning her father, Jamie Spears, remains in control of Britney's personal, financial and medical affairs. For now.

Despite rumors that have swirled since the death of Brittany Murphy last month, both her husband, Simon Monjack, and her mother Sharon say she did not suffer from any mental illness, use drugs or have an eating disorder.

"Do you not think anybody would have picked up on this anorexic, mentally deranged person?" Simon Monjack says. "To suggest that is ludicrous."

Mr. & Mrs. Monjack

The pair have spent the last month sequestered in Murphy's Hollywood home since the actress died of cardiac arrest early Sunday, December 20.

Both say Murphy, who was just 32, had a heart condition that was diagnosed in her teens, for which she had been given appropriate medical care.

"We had it checked out every way you could imagine," says Monjack.

Murphy's mother says her daughter's naturally "bubbly" personality may have sparked rumors of substance use, when in reality she rarely partook.

"She never even drank. Maybe a glass of champagne at New Years," says Sharon. "But everyone used to say she was wasted, she was this, she was that. It was hard for everyone to imagine that somebody was so high on life."

Monjack said on Larry King Live that every morning when he wakes up, "it's like a rebirth. It's -- there's not enough time to -- your dreams, be they good or bad, when you wake up and I reach out to touch or hold my wife, she isn't there."

Murphy's mother found the actress unresponsive in the bathroom. She screamed for Monjack, who can be heard on the Brittany Murphy 911 call.

Monjack blames Hollywood for the actress' demise.

"You want to know what broke Brittany Murphy's heart?" he asks King, in response to allegations of her substance use. "Hollywood broke her heart."

With the drama of Rozlyn Papa and her "inappropriate" relationship with producer Ryan Callahan dying down, you knew The Bachelor had a new scandal brewing.

The bomb waiting to be dropped this week? Tenley Molzahn reveals to Jake Pavelka that she's pregnant! Well, maybe. Kind of reeks of a promo-only stunt to us.

Tenley, who works in admissions for the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Huntington Beach, Calif., confesses in a preview that she's knocked up.

The 25-year-old was previously married, and said last week, "I haven't dated anyone since my ex-husband," leaving us wondering who the father of her baby is.

Our guess? No one. Tenley Molzahn is punking Jake and two seconds after she drops the baby bomb, she'll proclaim "Ha, just kidding!" Take that to the bank.

PERFECT TENLEY: Pregnant or not, will she win The Bachelor's heart?

Interestingly, the sweet, beautiful Tenley is said to make the final two this season, along with Vienna Girardi, according to The Bachelor spoilers we've read.

That's just speculation, but our source has been right before.

Namely, we knew about the Molly-Melissa switcheroo by Jason Mesnick, Ed Swiderski winning The Bachelorette (and likely cheating on Jillian), and the Rozlyn scandal.

What do you think? Is Tenley Molzahn pregnant? Does she have good chemistry with The Bachelor, Jake Pavelka? Are you rooting for her this season? Comment!

Tiger Woods is in rehab for sex addiction in Mississippi.

Two different sources have seen the world's #1 golfer in the Hattiesburg area. E! News has him at the entrance to the airport there around 10 p.m. Monday.

"He didn't look happy or sad, just straight," a witness says, noting that Tiger Woods got into the driver's seat of an SUV parked curbside and then drove off.

That sighting coincides with a Radar Online report that says the beleaguered star is currently in Hattiesburg to receive treatment at sex addiction facility.

Tiger was seen at Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services. He checked in there this week to receive sex addiction treatment, sources claim.

If true, it would help repair his image, at least a little. Same with his Haiti relief pledge. Going completely off the radar hasn't helped quell Tiger gossip.

Tiger Woods is likely in rehab for sex addiction.

Two police cars pulled up to the clinic Friday afternoon and several officers went inside, showing no outward signs of a disturbance but of increased security.

The clinic is directed by Dr. Patrick Carnes, who pioneered treatment for sexually compulsive behavior, and is widely considered one of the best in the field.

Tiger Woods has not been seen in public since his infamous post-Thanksgiving car crash into a fire hydrant and tree exposed his dalliances with Rachel Uchitel.

That led to more than 10 women coming forward and admitting to sexual relationships with Tiger. His wife, Elin Woods, has not filed for divorce from him ... yet.

Whether she plans to is anyone's guess, although we reported in December that Tiger was planning a rehab stint after the holidays to help salvage his marriage.

Will sex rehab help Tiger?

Embattled, heat-packing NBA star Gilbert Arenas has entered a plea of guilty to one felony count of carrying an unlicensed firearm in the District of Columbia.

He has yet to be sentenced, and could still end up doing time for having the illegal gun. It is estimated that a low-end sentence would carry under six months.

Arenas' plea came after an investigation into a locker room standoff he had with teammate Javaris Crittenton in December and became a huge sports scandal.

The Washington Wizards player has to turn in his passport and is no longer allowed to possess any firearms. An investigation into Crittenton remains open.

During court proceedings this afternoon, new details of the now-infamous locker room standoff, which must be read to be believed, have also been revealed.

It all went down December 19, when Arenas and Crittenton became "involved in a verbal exchange after a card game," during which Arenas - who claims it was just a joke - and the teammate made "mutual threats to shoot one another."

Two days later, Arenas - who had four guns at the Verizon Center - "placed them on the chair of a teammate with a note stating, reportedly in jest, "PICK 1.'"

When Javaris Crittenton arrived, Arenas reportedly stated, "You said you were going to shoot me, so I thought you would like some firepower. Pick One."

Ken Wainstein, a lawyer for Arenas, said afterward that Gilbert "accepted full responsibility for his actions, acknowledged that those actions were wrong and against the law, and has apologized to all who have been affected by his conduct."

He is due back in court on March 26.

Arenas is prohibited, as are all NBA players, from bringing firearms into the arena, and the team could be looking to void his $111 million contract as a result.

This felony conviction definitely gives them more ammo. Pun intended.

When Audrina Patridge is calling you out for having too plastic surgery, you've got issues. Then again, Heidi Montag is probably just thrilled to be mentioned at all.

After all, The Hills star insists on calling herself a pop star and claims her debut album is on par with Michael Jackson's Thriller. Whatever keeps her in the news.

Audrina's take on Heidi Montag's plastic surgery is that it's her body and her choice, but at the same time, she herself wouldn't be tempted to go nearly that far.

"I haven't seen how she looks, so it's hard for me to comment on it, but these are her decisions, and as long as Heidi's happy, that's all that matters," Audzo said.

Very diplomatic.

Audrina Patridge has only mild criticism for her plastic pal.

Rumors that Audrina herself has fake boobs and has undergone other plastic surgery procedures in the past have circulated widely, but she's never confirmed it.

Heidi, on the other hand, seems to milk it for attention. Frightening.

Even while showing the 'Tag support, Audrina Patridge admits surprise at the number of procedures she had. Let's just say she's on par with MJ in something.

"I think it's a case of, 'To each their own,'" she said at Kari Feinstein's Style Lounge at Zune in Hollywood, "but 10 procedures in one day is a little much."

Supermodel Claudia Schiffer and her husband, director Matthew Vaughn, have just announced that they are expecting their third child together.

"We are delighted with the news and can't wait to add to our family," the 39-year-old said in a statement, adding that baby #3 is due this May.

Nadya Suleman and Children

The two - who wed in May 2002 - are already parents to two children, Caspar, 6, and Clementine, 5. The gender of their new sibling is unknown.

"I love being pregnant," she has said. "You can do whatever you want. You don't feel guilty, because I used to feel guilty about having a day off."

Matthew Vaughn and Claudia Schiffer are expecting!

"And, you know, something really strange happened to me. Before my pregnancies, I was someone who had to watch their weight," she adds.

"I had a personal trainer, I was working out, all the time, and I would never eat anything sweet. Anyway, I got pregnant and when I was breastfeeding it just came off. I can eat whatever I want. If I don't eat enough I will lose weight."

Good to know - and great news about the new arrival!
