Last year, Michael Lohan admitted that he cheated on Dina back in the '90s and fathered a love child. Now she's an 18-year-old named Ashley Horn . . . and she recently had $25,000 worth of plastic surgery to look like her half-sister Lindsay. She says, quote, "My goal was to look like Lindsay in her good days, when she was around 18, 19 years old. "I've gotten rhinoplasty, a bit of refinement underneath my cheeks and jawline, some fat injected into my chin, and some fat injected into my upper cheeks. I'm hotter than Lindsay! I have no problem saying that." But she adds, quote, "I don't drink, do drugs or party. I like being a responsible person. I'm not Lindsay. I wasn't raised in that family."
Speaking of, Lindsay Lohan will get to keep her huge paycheck from Oprah Winfrey but only after an intense showdown between O and LiLo. Lindsay was a disaster at the beginning of the project -- at times just being a no-show -- which doesn't work in Oprah's world. We're told Oprah went to Dina's house on Long Island for a showdown with Lindsay. She told Lindsay either clean up her act or the project is over and Lindsay would not get her $2 million paycheck. Our sources say Lindsay had a bunch of excuses ... she was spending time trying to find an apartment in NYC, she had other projects she was trying to finish, there were "miscommunications" between her people and the folks at OWN, yada yada. Oprah made the ultimatum clear and Lindsay got the message. We're told Lindsay is now cooperating and things have been running okay for nearly a month, but Oprah is still watching Lindsay like a hawk.
Call him Bill Nye, the healing guy. Following a torn ligament from falling mid-routine on Monday night's Dancing with the Stars, the Science Guy, 57, is "in good spirits and is really hoping he can continue to compete," a source tells PEOPLE. Nye, a fan favorite on the ABC show, "stepped on the cuff of these fancy slacks and I went down," he told PEOPLE after the tumble earlier this week. "We'll do R.I.C.E. – we'll do rest, ice, compression, elevation [and] see where we get." The injury sent him to the hospital. "Bill Nye was injured during his performance last night and is currently seeking medical attention," the show said in a statement. "We will continue to keep you posted on his progress.” The former TV host, who claimed the first big injury of the season, did not have to go through the doctor visit alone. He posted an Instagram photo on Tuesday with dance partner Tyne Stecklein by his side, with her hand on his wrapped knee.
Blake Shelton is trying to start a new tradition on "Live With Kelly and Michael". But he's the only one doing it, so we'll see how long it lasts. Whenever he comes to the show, he takes gum out of his mouth and sticks it under a chair. He was a guest on the show back in March, and he stuck his gum under his chair because he forgot he was chewing it when he came out. Yesterday he came back and it was still there, so he put another piece next to it.
Elton John was on "Ellen" yesterday, and Ellen asked him if he was planning to get married to David Furnish, now that same-sex marriage is legal in Britain. He's been in a civil partnership with Furnish for eight years, but he says he'll absolutely get married now, because he's fought for that right for a long time and he didn't expect they would get it so soon.
The "New York Post" says that Richard Gere and actress Carey Lowell are getting divorced after 11 years of marriage. They haven't been photographed together since last year, and a so-called "source" says they've been, quote, "spending time apart for quite some time." He's 64, she's 52, and they have a 13-year-old son with the unfortunate name Homer James Jigme Gere.
This sounds like a record that'll be broken by tomorrow afternoon . . . but yesterday in Times Square, 358 people set a world record for "Most People Twerking Simultaneously." And the highlight was a twerker named Joan Wind, who's 73 years old. When you can, check out the video. Joan wasn't actually planning to twerk yesterday. She was doing some shopping at Macy's when she saw the crowd. But that doesn't mean she's an amateur by any means. She says she saw someone twerking two or three years ago . . . and was pretty happy with the results when she tried doing it in front of a mirror.
Jimmy Fallon did another one of his covers with The Roots on classroom instruments last night. This time it was the "Sesame Street" theme, and the puppets from the show were there to sing along. Even Elmo, who has apparently rehabbed his image since last year.
Sorry, ladies—Joseph Gordon-Levitt is off the market. During his first-ever interview with SiriusXM's Howard Stern Show, the Don Jon star revealed he's been seeing someone special. "I have a girlfriend but I tend not to really like to talk about it in public," the 32-year-old actor said. "She is not in show business." He declined to say how long they've been together. Gordon-Levitt repeatedly refused to identify his girlfriend, though he did reveal that they met through "mutual friends." Asked if he's in love, he replied, "Oh, jeez, man! Come on! This is getting private." Clearly uncomfortable discussing his love life, Gordon-Levitt explained why he's been keeping his romance on the DL. "I get up in movies and I play other people, so when the audience is watching me in movies, I don't want them thinking about me and who I'm dating, and blah blah blah," he said. "I want them to see the character, the story that I'm telling." In fact, Gordon-Levitt said he appreciates that his ladylove doesn't want to be in the spotlight. "The girl that I'm with, she really doesn't want to be a part of it," the actor said. "You can imagine not wanting to have that kind of scrutiny."
