Bon Jovi's number two, Richie Sambora, returned to rehab on Monday -- this time at the Cirque Lodge in Utah -- the same rehab facility where Lindsay Lohan is currently receiving treatment.
This is the second time this year Sambora's been to rehab. This past June, after the traumatic break-up of his marriage to Heather Locklear and his split from girlfriend Denise Richards, Sambora spent a week at the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles.
At the time, he told NBC's Matt Lauer that he decided to go the rehab route because, "I was just drinking too much, and I needed to get my life together."
The 48-year-old Bon Jovi guitarist has a private room at Cirque, reports Star.
George Clooney and his girlfriend, Sarah Larson, were injured Friday when the motorcycle they were riding was clipped by a car in New Jersey, according to several media reports.
Fortunately, the Hollywood hunk and his new companion - who were both wearing helmets - managed to escape the accident with only broken bones and road rash.
Clooney suffered a broken rib while Larson, 28, broke her foot, the actor’s rep, Stan Rosenfield said. Both were treated at Palisades Medical Center in North Bergen, N.J., and released.
"He’s doing fine," Rosenfield said of his client, who just last week was in Boston to present the Boston Film Festival’s lifetime achievement award to mega-producer Jerry Weintraub. "He has a broken rib. It’s very painful and it’ll take a long time to heal."
According to police, the 46-year-old “Ocean’s 11” star was driving his Harley-Davidson north on Boulevard East in Weehawken, N.J., at 3:30 p.m. when he collided with a 1999 Mazda Millenia.
Clooney, who’s been in the Big Apple to film his dark comedy “Burn After Reading,” told cops he was driving in the right lane when the other driver, identified as Albert Sciancaledore, 27, sped up to try and pass him before making a right turn, Weehawken police Sgt. Sean Kelly told press.
However, Sciancaledore insists it was the silver-screen star who was passing on the right - illegal in New Jersey - as he attempted to make a right turn in his Mazda on the two-lane road.
"It’s a he-said, she-said right now, but you can’t pass on the right in Weehawken or anywhere in Jersey," Kelly said.
The crash remains under investigation.
Salma Hayek and her businessman fiancé, François Henri Pinault, are the parents of a baby girl, Valentina Paloma Pinault.
“Mother and daughter are doing well,” Hayek’s publicist Cari Ross, said in a statement. No further details were released.
A source told PEOPLE that the 41-year-old Mexican-born actress entered the hospital on Thursday and that Pinault was present.
The daughter is the first child for Hayek. Pinault, 45, has two children from a previous marriage which ended in divorce in 2004.
Milla Jovovich was flocked by Las Vegas showgirls as she showed off her bump in a stretch silk jersey dress by her clothing company, Mango. Jovovich, who is expecting a daughter in November, was out promoting her new movie, Resident evil: Extinction.
How does she compare pregnancy with doing all the physical stunts in her movie? “I thought making action films was challenging, but this puts all of that in second place! I mean it’s hard, man. Women are amazing!” she tells OK! magazine.
Jovovich, 31, is enjoying the entire experience of being pregnant. “I think it’s so incredible to feel my baby moving. Just the whole feeling of being pregnant. I’ve discovered what it is to be a real woman, that’s for sure.”
Milla has reportedly gained 70 pounds during her pregnancy. What about losing the baby weight? “I’m definitely not going to take it too quickly. I don’t want to do anything that’s dangerous for me or my baby.”
Check out Milla’s fashions at Mango.com. They do not have a “maternity” line, but they do have fashions that would fit a pregnant body, like the Dress FCC Gaara.

The National Ledger reported Britney wanted a "seven-figure" deal to strip for the iconic magazine, but Hefner was only willing to part with $US400,000.
Five years ago, at the height of her chart success, Britney was offered $2 million to star in Playboy.
A source told the Ledger that photos of Britney without underwear on taken by paparazzi, and her woeful performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, had lowered her asking price.
"Britney is truly delusional if she thinks anyone is going to pay giant bucks to see her nude," the source said.
"She's already bared too much flesh for free while out partying for that to happen.
"There was a time when Hef might have been willing to pony up, but that time has long passed."

Mariah Carey has been speaking out about the “bleak diets” that have helped her achieve the svelte new look she sported at Thursday's VH1 Save the Music gala in New York.
"My secret is bleak diets," the singer told reporters at the event. "I still feel like I have a way to go."
But the naturally curvy singer is insistent that she’s not striving for the super-skinny look.
She added: "I don't feel like you have to be a size zero. We should all just embrace who we are physically. I'm not supposed to be a stick figure girl. It's just not me."
Last year, the singer confessed that her "bleak" diet consisted of "basically soups and fish prepared really blandly."

It’s getting to be that time of year… leaves falling…hot cocoa…big cozy sweaters… firemen bursting into your apartment to put out the fire in your fireplace. That’s right, Renee Zellweger had her perfect night in ruined by some of New York City’s bravest.
Apparently some of the “Bridget Jones’ Diary” actress’ neighbors were worried when they smelled smoke. So they did the natural thing, and called the FDNY.
A source told press, "A truckload of fire-fighters arrived at Renee’s apartment. They came and put out the contained fire in her fireplace. It seemed very unnecessary, but maybe because it is so early in the season, the neighbor was concerned."
Here are the girls - Kristin Davis, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kim Cattrall - on the set of Sex and the City: The Movie.

Lindsay Lohan is responsible for breaking up a British heiress' marriage - after the actress slept with her husband in rehab, according to reports.
The 21-year-old star was linked with musician and father of two Tony Allen, 40, earlier this month, following a spell in the Cirque Lodge rehab facility in Utah this summer.
Despite claims from Allen the pair are "just friends", Allen's wife Stephanie is claimed to have thrown him out of the couple's family home in Savannah, Georgia.
A source tells British newspaper the Daily Mirror: "She has had it. They tried forever to have kids. She went through IVF (in vitro fertilisation) three times and suffered two miscarriages, and when they finally got two beautiful babies, he hooks up in rehab with a girl half his age."
The source adds, "He is trying to live out this rock star fantasy at 40. All Stephanie wanted was for him to be a good husband and father."
