If there's a time for a correctional facility to release a high-profile inmate while attracting as little attention as possible, it's 1:35 a.m. on a Monday morning.

That's when Lindsay Lohan was let out of jail in Lynwood, Calif., today. In the end, the star served a whopping 13 of her 90-day sentence in a solitary cell.

She was taken to UCLA Medical Center to begin rehab treatment.

"She was released at 1:35 a.m.," L.A. Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said. "She has been sent directly to her next destination, a treatment center."

Lohan's sentence was cut drastically due to good behavior and the sheriff's policy of releasing non-violent offenders early because of major overcrowding.

She was not, however, allowed to delay rehab as she desired.

Say Wut

The troubled star was expecting to serve her court-ordered 90 days in rehab at Morningside Recovery in Orange County, but the judge changed her mind.

Judge Marsha Revel was concerned that drugs could be very easily passed on to the actress there, and therefore approved UCLA Medical Center instead.

Sources tell TMZ that in rehab, Lohan will be treated for addiction to methamphethamine and bipolar disorder, though her attorney has disputed this.

Lindsay Lohan takes Adderall, an amphetamine. While methamphetamine is different, a rehab facility might qualify it as the same drug or addiction type.

In any case, if she violates any rules during her treatment, the court could be notified and the judge could potentially throw her back in jail again.

She also faces a year of random drug testing. The 24-year-old actress must stay clean and sober until August 2011, when her probation term expires.

Can Lindsay stay clean?

Announcing his weekend wedding with little fanfare, former Dawson's Creek hunk James Van Der Beek broke the news to his fans via a brief Twitter post.

Of his bride, Kimberly Brook, he said: "The woman I love did me the honor of became my wife today. I look forward to earning her for the rest of my life."

"Best day of my life so far."

That's gotta be pretty rough to hear (and not just for the horrendous grammar) if you're Heather McComb, Van Der Beek's previous wife of six years.

The two finalized their divorce fairly recently, this March.

Kimberly Brook and James Van Der Beek are married!

Further details of his wedding to Kimberly remain scarce. But in June, the cute couple revealed that they are expecting their first child together later this year.

“We’re so excited to announce we are expecting a girl [this fall]," Brook said. "We are thinking and taking suggestions for names, but we have no idea."

Congratulations to the happy couple! Also marrying this weekend:

When two of the more annoying reality TV fixtures in recent years collide in a fashion face-off, you know it's going to be a style smackdown for the ages.

The Real Housewives of New York City drama queen Kelly Bensimon picked her A/X Armani Exchange romper for a movie premiere in (where else) NYC.

Meanwhile, The Bachelor star, now ex-fiancee of Jake Pavelka and all-around class act belted a printed one-piece for a pool party she hosted in Vegas.

Who rocked this fashion statement better? Vote below!

Kelly, Vienna

Which star's style do you like better?

“Thank God I jerk off left-handed or I’d have no social life this week.” - Scott Disick

To say Kourtney Kardashian's baby daddy is a loser would be an understatement, but it appears our fair heroine finally wised up to this truth last night.

Read on to see what the poor THG intern stuck watching his antics on reality TV thought of last night's installment on Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami:

Finally, it was the episode we’ve all been waiting for. The “Douche-pocalyse” (thank you How I Met Your Mother). Scott Disick done lost his marbles, ya’ll.

Okay so Kourtney wises up and realizes Scott’s back to his old tricks and drinking and partying too much. She and Kim chat about this while on their friend Loren’s yacht, which is gorgeous by the way. When they return home, they notice their apartment smells like weed and Kourtney confronts Scott.

Kourt, Scott and Mason: One sweet, happy family.

In his effed up state, he grabs Kourtney tightly by the wrist (none of this is filmed) and she slaps him across the face. She then runs out, grabs Kim and Mason and they head back to Loren’s for safety. Meanwhile, Scott is left to his own devices with only the producers and cameramen to supervise.

He punches the mirror, injuring his hand and is taken to the hospital

This is the realest I’ve seen this show get. 

There’s no way that was made up. Everyone knows Scott is crazy, but you can tell just by the filming that this wasn’t fake. The cameramen had to call the producers to decide how to deal with Scott. Kourtney and Kim were visibly scared, and it was altogether a very messed up situation. This is just so sad for Mason.

The next day, Scott apologizes profusely and ends up getting surgery on his hand. Kourtney decides that although she wants to be there for his surgery, she needs to do what’s best for her and Mason.

Scott Disick: The monster, devilish boyfriend from hell.

On the random flip side of this episode, Kim Kardashian is still upset about her breakup with Reggie. She brings it up out of nowhere and it’s not even well transitioned by the producers. She wants to find a mate who will accept her for who she is.

Don’t we all? Anyway, there’s nothing better to cheer a gal up then have a Maserati flown in directly for her!

By the way, it’s such an obvious ploy to keep having Jonathan Cheban pop up on this show. He’s Kim’s best friend, not Kourtney’s or Khloe’s. Clearly, this was a setup by E! to help plug their next reality show, The Spin Crowd.

But enough about him, Khloe is back next week and she comes with a very angry visitor. Oh snap, Scott is about to endure the wrath of Kris Jenner. Amen.

The cover for Sarah Palin’s newest book, America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag, has just been released by publisher HarperCollins.

The book is due out November 23, after the midterm elections and about a year after the release of her bestseller, Going Rogue: An American Life.

Expect the new book – and extensive book tour - to amplify the speculation over whether the ex-Alaska Governor will run for president in 2012.

It certainly would be interesting if she challenged Barack Obama.

Among the many, many things Palin ripped Obama about in the past was his writing two books and having very little to show for it legislatively.

Since the 2008 campaign, she resigned as governor to focus on her career ambitions, whatever those are, and apparently write a few herself.

Just saying.

New Sarah Palin Book Cover

Should Sarah Palin run for President in 2012?

It was no three-city extravaganza like T.I. and Tiny's wedding.

No diplomats and former heads of state were on hand like at the widely publicized nuptials of former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky.

Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre and Michael Buble

Still, it was perfect for Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz, who wed a private ceremony Saturday in a home on the Mediterranean Sea before family and friends.

The bride wore a Grecian-inspired Vera Wang dress and carried a bouquet of purple calla lilies. The groom was decked out in a Tom Ford tuxedo.

The couple's friend, Dr. Deepak Chopra, presided over the nuptials.

Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz have come so far.

"Wowwwwwwwww," Beatz (real name: Kasseem Dean) Twittered afterward. "It's a brand new day :) I feel like Nas and Diddy song :) love y’all and blessing!"

The couple, who are also expecting their first child together, have been together since fall 2008. They announced their engagement and baby news in May.

It's the first marriage for Keys and the couple's first child together.

While the newlyweds don't know the gender of their baby just yet, Beatz says it is just magical experience to be bringing a child into this world with Alicia.

"That baby is being born blessed parents," he recently said. "Alicia is definitely one of those great parents-to-be. She's super ready. Super glowing, happy."

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Jessica Simpson is getting a little desperate for attention these days if you ask us isn't afraid to show the world her love for new beau Eric Johnson.

The one-time singer and actress posted a shot of her smooching her latest squeeze (a Yale graduate AND former NFL player) on her Twitter page.

Large Jessica Simpson

"Romance 101... getting kissed by my Yalie... me not lookin' so smart... :)" she wrote. "but YUM!" Pretty much sums it all up right there ...

Jessica Simpson is in love - and wants the world to know!

It's good to see her happy, but should we be concerned?

Fueling rumors that Eric Johnson is just using her, rumors surfaced this weekend that he pulled out of the two-year business program at the University of Pennsylvania’s prestigious Wharton school to remain in L.A. with the star.

Even though they've only been together eight weeks, a source says: "He doesn’t want to move to Philadelphia and leave her so soon after they got together."

Plus, living with/sponging off Jessica Simpson has to beat an MBA in market value, are we right? It doesn't take a Yale degree to figure that out ...

Chelsea Clinton, who Americans first got to know nearly two decades ago as the young daughter of President Bill Clinton, is now a married woman.

The lucky man is longtime boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky.

Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre and Michael Buble

Wearing a dress by Vera Wang (a family friend who was present), the former First Daughter, 30, wed the investment banker, 32, in Rhinebeck, N.Y.

An interfaith ceremony for Chelsea, who is Methodist, and Marc, who is Jewish, was conducted by Rabbi James Ponet and the Rev. William Shillady.

Saturday's wedding was attended by 400 friends and family members, most notably Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton (wearing Oscar de la Renta).

The former President and current Secretary of State released a statement: "Today, we watched with great pride and overwhelming emotion as Chelsea and Marc wed in a beautiful ceremony at Astor Courts, surrounded by family and close friends."

Presenting Mr. and Mrs. Marc Mezvinsky!

"We could not have asked for a more perfect day to celebrate the beginning of their life together, and we are so happy to welcome Marc into our family."

"On behalf of the newlyweds, we want to give special thanks to the people of Rhinebeck for welcoming us and to everyone for their well-wishes on this special day."

The guest list did not include Oprah Winfrey or President Obama, who joked on The View about his snub, but did feature Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen, Madeleine Albright, and a handful of congressmen and other prominent Democrats.

Rhinebeck, a beautiful, small town in upstate N.Y., was swarmed all week by paparazzi and national media trying to catch a glimpse of the festivities.

Everybody understandably wanted to see how the teenager who grew up in the White House blossomed into a blushing bride - and with good reason.

Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky live in New York City and have dated since 2005, although they have been friends since they were teenagers.

They seem so happy together, as are we for them. Congratulations to the couple! Click to enlarge more Chelsea Clinton wedding photos below!

It looks like the second engagement of Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston is off, but that the rumor of him knocking up his ex-girlfriend is not the reason.

His flirting with another ex-girlfriend is!

Bristol, 19, called off engagement #2 to Levi, 20, last week following a huge fight over one of his ex-girlfriends - and we don't mean Lanesia Garcia.

Garcia was outed as Levi's possible second baby mama this week, but new reports say that the Playgirl model is not the father of her unborn child.

Luckily for our boy, he wasn't the one among the "three potential fathers" to have impregnated Lanesia during the probable week of conception.

But Bristol Palin still has beef with him - and Briana Plum.

  • Bristol Photograph
  • Levi Johnston Playgirl Picture

Levi Johnston apparently got naked a lot in between his two engagements to Bristol Palin, and we're not even talking about his Playgirl photo shoot for once.

"Lanesia and Levi have dated off and on over the past few years but he's not the father of that baby," says a source to E! Online. "Lanesia's other ex-boyfriend is the father. She's not the reason that [Bristol and Levi] broke it off."

That would be Levi's other ex, Briana: "There was an interview with her and Bristol wasn't happy about things she said. There was also some picture on Facebook of him and Briana and Bristol just said, ‘Let's hold off on the engagement.'"

Neither Palin nor Johnston have confirmed this, but the parents of 19-month-old Tripp just got engaged again a few weeks ago, landing them on the cover of Us Weekly amid rumors of shopping a reality show featuring their young family.

Guess even a huge paycheck can't keep some fake relationships intact.

Can Bristol and Levi still make it work?

Ever since the first reports of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt splitting up, Hills fans understandably assumed wondered if it was another big PR hoax.

Looks like it isn't.

Almost two months after the plastic princess went to court seeking legal separation from the puppet master, the reality star has filed for divorce.

Heidi Montag cites the usual "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the pair's split in a divorce petition filed in Santa Monica, Calif., Court.

"Heidi has amended her petition for separation and has filed a petition for dissolution of marriage from Spencer Pratt," attorney Jodeane Farrell said. The couple has agreed they would like their divorce to be finalized in a timely manner."

Hopefully Spencer Pratt finds comfort in his beloved crystals.

Adding that terms will be hashed out in an out of court settlement, Farrell said "both parties are amicable with each other and finalizing the divorce."

The couple staged a sham wedding in Cabo in 2008, then tied the knot for real in April 2009 at a church in Pasadena, Calif., appearing happy.

Things went downhill fast, however.

Heidi Montag underwent 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day, fired Spencer as her manager, released terrible music, accused The Hills creator Adam DiVello of sexual harassment and became estranged from her family and so on.

For his part, Spencer Pratt has grown increasingly eccentric, and even admitted to being a fame whore and choosing his "career" over his wife.

Heidi Montag then and now. Enough said.

He echoed that sentiment yesterday to People.

"I love Heidi but our marriage was a show – it was part of The Hills world," Pratt said after the divorce filing. "That world is on a sound stage."

Referring to himself in the third-person, he adds: "It's clear that reality TV-fame-loving Spencer Pratt does not fit with my ex-wife Heidi Montag's ambitions for a motion picture actor/pop star career and being a single sex symbol for the world."

"Some say if you can't handle the heat get out of the kitchen, Well, Heidi couldn't handle King Spencer's fame so she got out of the marriage."

Right. So basically, his stardom is just too enormous. Makes sense.
