Lindsay Lohan's guts don't come cheap, because we found out she's spilling them to Oprah at a cost of around $2 million. Sources close to Lindsay tell us ... The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) has been negotiating with Lindsay for 4 months. The plan -- an 8-part docu-series about Lindsay's struggles, her career and her plans for the future -- but we're guessing it's mostly about her struggles.
It's a better deal for Lindsay than just taking her top off. For that ... Playboy paid her a measly $1 mil. Ironically ... Lindsay's latest rehab drama may have scored her more cash, because of the drama and interest created around almost going to jail, firing her lawyer, going to Betty Ford, bailing from Betty Ford ... and on and on. Sources tell us ... Lindsay actually signed the deal at Betty Ford. Lindsay got some perks from Oprah as well -- as in TWO fully-paid assistants and a stylist. Substance abuse can pay handsomely -- Who knew?
E! News says that "numerous amounts of alcohol" were found in the Vancouver hotel room where Cory Monteith died over the weekend. There were also other "substances", but there's no word yet what they were. Meanwhile, on the night before Cory's body was found, he visited at least two Vancouver clubs . . . the Roxy and the Queen's Republic. Authorities are trying to speed up toxicology -tests so Cory's cause of death can be announced in the next few days. Meanwhile, TMZ posted some of the last photos of Cory ever taken. He was at a Vancouver coffee house called The Shop with some friends. Sources say he had a few beers but never seemed drunk or out of control. This was on July 6th, a week before Cory's death.

Dave Matthews had a show in Hershey, Pennsylvania the other night, and he decided he would ride his bike to the arena. By himself, WITHOUT taking a cell phone. Of course he got a flat tire on the way, on a country road in the middle of nowhere. Lucky for him, a fan drove past him, on the way to the show AND she had a bike rack on the back of her car. So he threw his bike on the rack and jumped in the car.
Jenny McCarthy is joining "The View" as a permanent co-host this fall. Barbara Walters announced it yesterday. Jenny has been a guest co-host eight times, and she's been a regular guest another nine times. She'll start at the beginning of Season 17 on September 9th.
Before her talk show premiered yesterday, Kris Jenner posted a picture of herself holding a baby on Facebook along with the caption, quote, "Will you be watching today's first episode!?

Chris Brown's probation was revoked yesterday, and the end result COULD be a prison sentence of up to four years. Brown was placed on five years' probation after he beat up Rihanna back in 2009. But he was recently charged with hit and run and driving without a valid license, following a traffic incident in May. And just being charged with a crime is enough for a probation violation. Chris maintains his innocence. He says he did everything right after the accident. And in fact, sources say the woman whose car he hit doesn't even want him prosecuted.
Katy Perry has named her new perfume Killer Queen after the Queen song of the same name. Apparently, the song had a profound impact on her as a teenager. She says, quote, "Freddie Mercury painted the lyrics of this woman who I wanted to be. She seemed very powerful, and she captivated a room when she walked in. I named [it] Killer Queen after those lyrics. I feel like, after all this time, it was appropriate to use that name in association with something I did. I feel like I'm falling, finally, into that woman Freddie painted." So, uh, by the way that woman Freddie painted was a WHORE. Literally. In 1974, Freddie said, quote, "['Killer Queen'] is about a high-class call girl. I'm trying to say that classy people can be whores as well.
Hugh Jackman managed to upset locals at the sacred hot springs in Japan during a break in filming "The Wolverine" by failing to cover up his manhood. The Australian actor let it all hang out during his time at the hot springs and it took him the best part of an hour to realize the hand towel he had been given at the entrance was to cover his privates. "The place is separated male and female and they hand you a towel, a small washcloth and there are eight different types of tubs with heats of different temperatures,'' Jackman told WENN. "I'm getting so hot and I'm using the towel they gave me to dip into the cold water and put it on my head and I was getting very strange looks from everybody." We want to know who would get upset by that?
