A New York Times Magazine writer confirmed last night what rumors have suggested for days: that Tiger Woods is a patient at Gentle Path, a sex addiction program at Pine Grove, a private treatment center in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

Benoit Denizet-Lewis, who has written extensively about his sex addiction, including his own, confirmed on his personal blog Monday that Woods is at the clinic.

In his book America Anonymous: Eight Addicts in Search of a Life, he notes that Gentle Path  "is directed by Patrick Carnes, one of the world's leading experts.

The official website for Pine Grove says that the Gentle Path program is "for those suffering from sexual addiction, relationship addiction and sexual anorexia."

Denizet-Lewis speculates Woods may have begun sex rehab treatment elsewhere - such as the Meadows treatment center in Arizona, where he was allegedly spotted.

What does sex addiction treatment entail, exactly? The reporter explains that the usual regimen includes group therapy sessions as well as family and couples therapy.

Tiger's wife, Elin Woods, has not been spotted at the facility, but that may change as his treatment progresses, at least according to the author's own experience.

"If Tiger and his wife, Elin, are serious about repairing their marriage," he writes on his blog, "then she will be spending some time in Hattiesburg with Tiger."

Another typical requirement: patients must sign a "celibacy contract" - a promise "not to have sex with anyone, or to masturbate, while in treatment."

In his book, Denizet-Lewis writes of other typical sex-clinic practices, including "empathy letters" for unfaithful married men and "cost letters" for their wives:

"Men who had repeatedly cheated on their wives had to write 'empathy letters' to them, which would never be sent but were read in group therapy sessions and usually criticized for not being nearly empathetic enough," he recalls.

On a similar note, sex addicts' wives "wrote their own, painful 'cost letters' - detailing how the sexual addiction had affected them - that were read to their husbands for the first time in group by another group member."

We expect Elin's will be a mile long - you could spend hours on just Rachel Uchitel. In all seriousness, we hope Tiger finds what he's looking for in rehab. He's obviously a troubled guy, and if Elin wants to give him a chance, that's her choice.

Will sex addiction treatment help Tiger Woods?

Sorry, Glee fans, but Adam Lambert is not coming on board this Fox series.

But a couple of other major names are likely to guest star on the 2010 Golden Globe winner for Best Comedy.

Executive producer Brad Falchuk has confirmed that Jennifer Lopez is in negotiations to appear this season as a cafeteria worker. Echoed creator Ryan Murphy:

"Lopez wants to do the show, so I’m going to meet with her. In the past couple of months, a lot of people are coming out saying they love the show... But I don’t want to stunt-cast too much, because I think the [musical] numbers are already so extravagant.”

  • J. Lo Picture
  • NPH

Still, there's no way Glee could turn down this opportunity:

Neil Patrick Harris is rumored to to star in a May sweeps episode directed by good friend Joss Whedon. The How I Met Your Mother star might be the most universally beloved figure on television these days.

His presence on Glee will only ratchet up the popularity of a show that's already been renewed for a second season and whose creativity and uniqueness is unrivaled on the small screen.

As for J. Lo? As long as she continues to keep it real as Jenny from the Bronx block, we'll be happy.

Note to Tila Tequila:

This is how you mourn a loved one... sort of.

While that troubled reality star continues to Tweet, pimp out her record level and exploit the death of Casey Johnson in every conceivable way, Courtenay Semel has released an emotional video tribute to her ex-girlfriend.

Granted, the video aired on E! News and there's a good chance Semel was paid to make it. She also butchers the English language by saying Johnson was "literally" her other half, and makes a vow to never date anyone again that is unlikely to be kept.

But at least this is the only time Courtenay has spoken out about Casey. Do the words seem strong for someone whose hair Semel once set on fire? Yes. But, hey, who are we to judge?!?

Watch the tribute below.

Okay, you might say it's a little heavy on the airbrushing, but Janet Jackson still looks great on the new cover of Gotham magazine. We're big fans of Janet.

While a somewhat odd choice for the cover of the magazine's wedding issue (she is newly single after splitting with Jermaine Dupri), we have no complaints.

Janet has a new album out, and a new perspective on life. Following a tragic year for her family, who bid farewell to Michael, she's finally ready to move on.

We have no doubt that she will. Janet has always seemed remarkably normal and well-adjusted compared to most members of her famous family. You go girl ...

Miss Jackson moves on. We can't wait to follow.

No, Mischa Barton's career hasn't fallen far enough that she is forced to walk the streets for money just to make ends meet. She's just doing it for Law & Order: SVU.

Dressed in character as a prostitute on the set in New York City yesterday, the young star plays a street worker who turns to Det. Benson (Mariska Hargitay) for help.

Perhaps she thinks Benson has connections with the fashion police. Girl needs to give them a call STAT! This isn't too different than she dressed on The Beautiful Life.

No wonder she's been looking for work ...

Britney Spears cannot sign record deals, buying homes, or probably even date someone without the consent of her father, conservator Jamie Spears.

That doesn't mean she can't find ways around the chains that legally bind her. When it comes to a recent shoe purchase, she was a credit card ninja.

The pop star has actually been using her bodyguard's credit card to buy stuff that doesn't fit into her conservatorship budget. Britney 1, Jamie 0!

Whoaaaa

WHOA! Underestimate Britney Spears' guile at your peril.

Britney hit up the Steve Madden store in the Valley over the weekend and bought two pairs of boots, paying for them with a credit card ... in a bodyguard's name.

The store employees gave Britney a hard time over the card ... because she signed her own name on the dotted line. Sigh. That will get you in trouble every time.

Spears ultimately convinced the clerk the person named on the card is an employee of hers and she was entitled to use it. Wonder if this will come up in court.

FUN FACT: Britney's personal credit card budget? $1,500 a week.

It's true. Chris Pine and Olivia Munn have officially split. For those who knew the hot couple was even together, this is some surprising and probably sad news.

They kept things private while dating this fall, the Star Trek star and the actress/model ended their romance. He was previously linked to Audrina Patridge.

The two kept their distance at the NY Times Style Magazine's Golden Globes cocktail party on Friday at the Chateau Marmont penthouse in West Hollywood.

A source later confirmed they've split up.

The two appeared cozy just a couple of weeks ago, when they were spotted at The Woods in L.A., sipping cocktails and giggling together in the dimly-lit bar.

But alas, Chris Pine is no longer seeing Olivia Munn nude.

Nick Jonas has a new band.

Does he also have an old girlfriend?

In the video below, Selena Gomez is spotted getting off a tour bus with Nick in Chicago. Sources also say she was in attendance at his concert in Detroit over the weekend.

Rumors of a Jonas/Gomez relationship began to surface in the summer of 2008. Nick never really shot them down, though there was never an official break-up. Think this video means there's been an official reconciliation?

During he and his band's tour, Nick has covered songs by Michael Jackson and Taylor Swift?

Why nothing by Gomez? Perhaps he was trying to throw fans off the scent of this rekindled romance. Sound off with your thoughts on this possible pairing right now.

As Conan O'Brien supporters gathered for rallies in New York and Los Angeles yesterday, Jay Leno took to the air to finally tell his side of the late-night controversy at NBC.

Based on everything Leno said, two things are clear:

  1. Everyone that runs the network should be fired immediately.
  2. Leno isn't remotely funny or creative.

In the clip below, he simply lays out everything that's happened over the last few years between he and O'Brien. It's simple, it's professional (he refers to Conan as a "gentlemen" and "good guy") and it's nowhere near as witty as the statement released by Conan last week.

Leno also claims the situation might be resolved today. We'll keep readers apprised if it is.

** UPDATE: Source confirm that O'Brien is to officially lose The Tonight Show. In exchange, he'll receive $32.5 million from NBC, and his staff will also receive severance.

In exchange for this deal, Conan may not host another show until September.

With rumors flying around her personal life (might she actually get engaged soon?), Miley Cyrus got back to work this week.

Her and the Hannah Montana crew began shooting the show's final season yesterday.

Disney Channel reps, meanwhile, have confirmed the dates for this season's two-part cliffhanger, appropriately titled "Miley Says Goodbye?" The installments will air on March 7 and March 14.

As Hannah Montana

Said Disney's chief creative executive Gary Marsh in a statement:

"This fourth season is an expression of Miley Cyrus' personal commitment to ensuring that 'Hannah' will live forever in the hearts and minds of kids everywhere."

Will you miss Hannah Montana when it goes off the air?
