LINDSAY LOHAN was supposed to check into rehab yesterday . . . but we ended the evening not knowing if she did. This whole thing has been a debacle from the get-go. Lindsay was originally going to do her 90-day stint at a facility in New York. But at the last minute she opted for Morningside Recovery Center in Newport Beach, California. TMZ says it's because the other place wouldn't allow her to smoke. Anyway . . . Lindsay arrived in California yesterday morning, and her attorney went to court and said she was, quote, "ensconced in the bosom" of Morningside. The funny thing is, she WASN'T. At the time her attorney was in court claiming she was already in rehab, Lindsay was spotted at a Fry's Electronics store in Fountain Valley.  She DID show up at Morningside later, but she didn't stay. She walked in and walked right back out. A source says, quote, "She told people there that she didn't need rehab. And then she left. Everyone was stunned." Then a source claimed that Lindsay was on her way to LAX to catch a flight back to New York. Of course it could be that she decided to go to the New York clinic she'd chosen initially. During the court hearing yesterday morning, Lindsay's attorney actually had to fight to get the judge to allow her to stay at Morningside, because it's NOT the place that had originally been agreed on. Prosecutors were JACKED that Lindsay changed facilities at the last minute. They never even had a chance to check Morningside out or approve it. And there are actually concerns about several supposed violations at Morningside. According to one report, they don't even have a license to provide in-patient care because of a death that occurred at the facility. Morningside denies that. The judge was going to let Lindsay stay there at least until prosecutors checked the place out. But maybe . . . just MAYBE . . . Lindsay decided to avoid the hassle and go back to the place everyone was already cool with. If Lindsay did NOT check into rehab yesterday that's a violation of her probation. And yet somehow, that's okay. According to TMZ, Lindsay was given until DAWN THIS MORNING to check into Morningside. That means roughly 6:00 A.M. Pacific Time.
 
After just two days on Match.com, MARTHA STEWART says she's already had A THOUSAND responses. She adds that three of them had potential . . . but she passed one of them along to her makeup artist, because he was only 34.
 
Dash cam video from REESE WITHERSPOON'S arrest last month in Atlanta hit the web yesterday, and it's pretty awesome. Reese drops some classic lines such as, "I'm a U.S. citizen. I am allowed to stand on American ground and ask any question I want to ask." . . . and "I'm obstructing your justice? Really? I'm being anti-American? Wow . . . interesting." Meanwhile . . . Reese entered a plea of no contest for disorderly conduct yesterday. All she has to do is pay a $213 fine. Jim pleaded guilty to DUI, and he'll get 40 hours of community service. He also has to attend an alcohol education program and he gets 12 months of probation.
