Marsha Revel, the Beverly Hills judge notoriously unmoved by Lindsay Lohan's nonsense and who threw her in jail last month, is stepping down from the case.

Revel recused herself Friday after the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office objected to meetings between the judge and defense attorneys in the case.

Prosecutor Danette Meyers raised the issue at a meeting between her, Revel and Lohan's defense attorney Shawn Chapman Holley, according to the L.A. Times.

Before prosecutors could file to request the change, Revel stepped aside, court spokesman Allan Parachini confirmed. Judge Elden Fox has taken her place.

The judge's contact with defense lawyers as well as others, such as the Morningside Recovery drug and alcohol treatment center, were the source of conflict.

It is unclear how or why this contact was inappropriate.

After Lohan's release from the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood, she was taken to the neuropsychiatric ward at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.

There, she will receive three months of rehab.

The change of judges marks the latest twist in a drama in which Revel had gone toe-to-toe with Lohan frequently and taken center stage along with the actress.

Last month, Revel dressed down the troubled star for repeatedly lying about her role in two drunken-driving related incidents within months of each other in 2007, and then failing to attend alcohol education classes as part of her probation.

"I'm not taking this as a joke," Lohan told the judge at the July 6 hearing before Revel. "I take responsibility for my actions. I've tried to do the best I can. It's been such a long haul, I don't want you to think that I don't respect you."

The whole fingernail display didn't help that argument.

Stephanie Pratt is somehow dating two dudes at the same time. Presumably they go out on the same date, like on The Bachelorette, but still. Play on, player!

A week after her bitter Twitter breakup with Josh Hansen, The Hills star is hedging her bets going forward by pursuing more than one fella interest at a time.

"I'm seeing two guys right now," she tells People, "it's actually way more fun than seeing one. I've never done something like this, but it's really quite lovely!"

The She-Pratt says it's all about keeping her options open.

"It's not really 'single' life, but I'm way too young for relationships," the 24-year-old said at Tuesday's Nylon + Express Denim Issue Party in W. Hollywood. "I've decided I want to keep things light, and I've realized that guys are children!"

Stephanie Pratt says guys are basically kids who need to be trained.

Well, sure, if your brother is Spencer Pratt, that's the obvious assumption. But the point of her new strategy is to educate, not aggravate, the opposite sex.

She says her two guys, who remain anonymous for now, can take a hint.

"It trains them to ask for dates a lot earlier in advance," Stephanie says. "That's the most amazing part is that I've realized they can actually be trained."

Ideally, of course, she wouldn't need to.

"My perfect man is someone that wants to read a book in Hawaii," the female Pratt says with a laugh. "I want someone that doesn't want to be in Hollywood. I want someone who has their own deal, and who thinks that what I do is 'weird.'"

What is it that she does exactly? Just saying. Anyone?

With no settlement or truce in sight in her battle with Mel Gibson, Oksana Grigorieva has added a top criminal and civil attorney to her legal team.

James Spertus, a former federal prosecutor and an experienced trial attorney who specializes in civil and criminal litigation, is on Team Oksana.

In Attack Mode!

She had met with civil rights campaigner Lisa Bloom as well as with Mark Lane, who wrote the famous JFK conspiracy book Rush to Judgment.

As she gears up for this protracted legal brawl, Spertus joins power lawyers Manley Freid and Marci Levine in the Russian musician's corner.

Oksana Grigorieva claims Mel Gibson exploded in rage January 6 at his Malibu mansion and punched her twice as she held their baby Lucia.

She is considering filing a possible civil complaint against Mel.

Mel and Oksana's relationship has been controversial from the start.

Gibson has accused his ex-girlfriend of trying to extort money from him after recording vile and abusive telephone conversations he made.

The Mel Gibson tapes were indeed vile and abusive ... verbally. As of right now, Mel Gibson has not been charged with any crime, however.

One of Grigorieva's new lawyer's immediate missions upon hiring, TMZ reports? Hiring experts who can sweep Oksana's home for bugs.

Sources say Oksana is worried Mel or the media has planted cameras or wiretapping devices and Spertus doesn't want to take chances.

Mel supposedly has his own PIs working the case.

The attorney is a nationally recognized expert on computers and other electronic gadgets, so he should have no problem with that task.

Britney Spears is booked for an appearance on Glee.

Might Justin Bieber follow in her (kinda trashy) footsteps?

In an interview with Access Hollywood this week, series creator Ryan Murphy was asked if he'd entertain the idea of Bieber on his Fox hit? The enthusiastic reply, according to TV Fanatic:

"I think he's so phenomenally talented and I think he's great. So, yes, if he was interested I would make that happen... the [cast sings] his stuff all day long. They sing 'Baby.'"

Pure Cuteness

In just its first season, Glee showcased big-name guest stars such as Kristin Chenoweth, Neil Patrick Harris, Idina Menzel and Molly Shannon. John Stamos and Carol Burnett have already signed on for season two appearances.

Do you think Bieber, who will make his TV debut on CSI this fall, is right for the show? Should he take Murphy up on the offer?

Montana Fishburne recently spoke of a passion for what she does.

What the 19-year-old daughter of Laurence Fishburne does is bone on camera, much to his chagrin. The Matrix star is none too pleased with her career path.

It may end up being a regular thing now, too.

It turns out the Chippy D sex tape was such a hit ... the company that released it just offered the young star a multi-picture deal for more of the goods.

Vivid Entertainment officially offered Montana Fishburne a multi-picture deal to cash in on the success ... though it's not clear how many flicks that entails.

Chippie D

Montana Fishburne has become an adult film sensation.

The company's president, Steven Hirsch, says that her adult video debut sold out nationally - more than 25,000 copies, with even more on back order.

We reported yesterday that the Chippy D tape netted her a mere $25,000. If so, she'd better ask for a raise next time. Possible title: CSI: Nether Region.

Laurence Fishburne's friends and attorney Yale Galanter offered to buy up every last copy of Montana's porn for $1 million - but by then it was too late.

The DVDs had already been sent out, and apparently there were more than a few eager customers. It's possible $1 million might have been low, given the interest in the tape - although with one address, they'd save on bulk shipping.

So much for those rumors.

Following the near-confirmation that Jennifer Lopez would join the American Idol judging table next season, a new report says this will not be the case after all.

J. Lo Live

Speaking to People, the insider blamed J. Lo's dive-like behavior for the dissolution of a deal, saying: “Her demands got out of hand. Fox just had enough.”

It's true that Lopez is the only person to have the number-one album and number-one movie in the same week. It's also true that was nine years ago and she's spent more of the remaining time searching for relevancy. Perhaps she should check her ego at the Idol door.

So, where does the show turn now?

Steven Tyler is still a strong possibility, and Kara DioGuardi has not been officially let go yet. We'd love to see Harry Connick Jr. included, but no way the table doesn't include at least one female.

Returning producer Nigel Lythgoe says he'd love to bring back Paula Abdul, but she's under contract with CBS. Are you disappointed by this news? Do you wanna see Tyler and Lopez on board?

Early in Season One of Jersey Shore, Angelina Pivarnick got fired from the boardwalk T-shirt shop, tossed her belongings in the trash and fled Seaside Heights.

None of the other cast members cared.

In fact, they were so apathetic about the "Kim Kardashian of Staten Island" that seeing her in South Beach during the Season 2 premiere led to double-takes.

People were far from pleased. Girls in particular.

"I just feel like she didn't fit into the family," Snooki (Nicole Polizzi) told MTV News. "When I saw her in the house, when I walked into Miami, I was like, 'What is this girl doing here? Why are you here? We could have brought [Deena] in.'"

There's no love lost between Snooki and Angelina.

That would be Deena Nicole Cortese, Snooki's BFF who joined the show for Season 3. The South Beach antics are considered Season 2, before the N.J. return.

"I'm different because I'm just a personable person," Deena, Ms. Class in a Glass, said. "I don't take things to heart. People can make fun of me 'til the day I die, and I will just take it in and be like, 'Yeah, you know what? Whatever.'"

Whatever indeed. But before Deena Nicole comes aboard, we're going to have to watch the crew run Angelina Pivarnick out, and it's not gonna be pretty.

"You're a f*%king white rat and you're f*%king pale and you're nasty" was one of our favorite Snooki quotes from the Season 2 premiere a few weeks back.

"Angelina, she just didn't fit in with anybody, she didn't really open up to anybody," Snook says. "I feel that's why nobody could really connect with her. We gave her a second chance. And she did what she did with it. You're going to have to see."

Less than 48 hours after the tragic Fantasia overdose, in which the former American Idol winner was rushed to a North Carolina hospital Monday night, the 911 call a friend placed to authorities has been released.

During the panicked conversation, an unidentified acquaintance says Fantasia is "slowly losing consciousness" after ingesting a bottle of aspirin.

The caller adds that Barrino has been placed in the shower to keep her awake and is breathing on her own. Listen for yourself:

A report from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department classified the incident as a "suicide attempt."

Yesterday, Fantasia's rep released a statement, saying Barrino "was totally overwhelmed with the lawsuit" brought on this week by Paula Cole and is "heartbroken and sorry for any pain she may have caused."

Sources now say Barrino is home and resting safely. We wish her a speedy recovery.

When California's controversial Prop 8 was overturned last week, many members of the Hollywood community took to the streets (and Twitter) in celebration.

No one was more thrilled to see the gay marriage ban lifted by an appellate judge than Lady Gaga, a longtime champion of gay and lesbian rights and issues.

On Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM morning show Wednesday, Gaga said she was elated, saying "Oh my gosh, I felt like it was a revolution, a gunshot went off."

"It was like setting everything into rotation, it was so exciting," the singer said. "For me, it was a moment that indicates it can happen in every state now."

"It has been important for so long, we've been fighting about it for so long," the rumored hermaphrodite continued. "I've been fighting for it for so long."

Gaga mentioned during the interview that she wrote a song called "Future Love" about the gay community's struggles to win the right to legally marry.

Hopefully, the judge's determination that Prop 8 was a violation of the Constitution's equal protection clause under the 14th Amendment stands for good.

We can at least say the following about this week's Kardashian tabloid coverage:

It doesn't only feature Kim in a bikini.

It does, however, focus on exaggerations and lies surrounding the world's least talented, most photographed family.

First, Life & Style quotes Kim and claims she has broken up with Miles Austin and is now SINGLE AGAIN.

Referring to the fifth season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the busty reality star tells the magazine: "I think this is the first time I've ever really been single filming the show. You'll see me single and having a good time."

There's just one problem with this supposed exclusive...

... Keeping Up with the Kardashians was filmed MONTHS ago. In the new trailer for it, we see a single Kim meeting and dating Austin. Nice try, though, Life & Style!

Us Weekly, meanwhile, breaks the news that Kourtney, Khloe and Kim are TORN APART due to Kourtney's relationship with Scott Disick. However, Kris Jenner, Scott's main critic, recently gave the loser a stamp of approval.

Still, a family insider claims "there have been knock-down, drag-out fights between the girls over Scott."

Look, tabloids of the world. These siblings waste enough of our time by pimping themselves out and sharing every nugget of their lives with the public. Must you really give them even more attention than they already have?
