As previously reported, Kate Moss is out of rehab. The superÂmodel checked out of an Arizona clinic where she has spent a month trying to kick drugs and booze.
"Kate is in excellent spirits and looking forward to getting back to work," a rep for her modeling agency said, adding that she most looked forward to being reunited with her 3-year-old daughter, Lila. Moss, who lost contracts with H&M, Burberry and Chanel after the London Mirror ran photos of the millionaire model "Hoovering" cocaine, has already landed assignments in L.A., Paris and New York, her reps said.
Among those pulling for her is ex-boyfriend Johnny Depp.
The actor is said to have given her the curious gift of a mirror.
It's not meant as a piece of drug paraphernalia, according to the London Sun. Rather, Depp, who's part Cherokee, is said to have given it as a shamanic device to help Moss "face herself without fear."
Paris Hilton was inseparable from Stavros Niarchos at Blender magazine's "Rock 'n' Roll Hollywood" bash in the Hollywood Hills the other night until Hilton decided to plant a good night kiss on 'NSYNC-er JC Chasez.
Paris didn't show the same affection towards ex-crony Nicole Richie, however. The heir-head bolted the party literally two minutes after Richie made her grand entrance. Richie spent most of the night chatting with Lindsay Lohan. Others there included a black-eyed Sergio Mora from "The Contender," Serena Williams and an unusually tranquil Mike Tyson.
George Clooney concedes he has "failed with women" but he's still searching for the love of his life.
The actor, 44, split from British TV presenter Lisa Snowdon earlier this year. He was then rumored to be dating Italian heiress Gianna Elvira Cantatore.
Clooney is now single again but he confesses he wants to find happiness like best pal Brad Pitt has with Angelina Jolie. He says, "I haven't lost hope. My friends Angelina Jolie and Brad are very much in love. Maybe it's time for me to find the woman of my life, too. "I realize I am the last person who can judge my tastes - I have failed badly with women."
Tom Cruise's ex Nicole Kidman found out her former hubby was going to be dad just like most of the rest of us ... on TV, reports Ananova.com.
Katie Holmes, Cruise's fiance, is pregnant with the couple's first baby. Kidman and Cruise divorced in 2001 after nearly ten years of marriage.
Kidman's friend told Grazia magazine: "Nic learned about Tom and Katie's baby the same way as everyone else - from the TV. "She went shopping immediately after hearing the news to try and take her mind off it, but that just made things worse. She says people pointed at her, and everyone was whispering as soon as she turned her back. She's taking it very hard."

Rambo is back in business. Sylvester Stallone will reprise his role as gun-toting John Rambo in the upcoming "Rambo IV," said Ben Nedivi of Millennium Films, which is producing the project with Emmett/Furla Films.
The 59-year-old Stallone also intends to bring boxer Rocky Balboa out of retirement. He will write and direct "Rocky Balboa," the sixth film in that franchise, with shooting set to begin next year.
Nedivi said the $50 million "Rambo IV" will recapture the rawness of "First Blood," which launched the franchise in 1982. Production is set to begin after "Rocky Balboa" wraps.
A new "Rambo" script hasn't yet been written, but the story calls for the reclusive Vietnam veteran to return to his vigilante ways when a young girl is kidnapped.

Friedman stars as Marian Halcombe, a role she created in the musical's London production, opposite Michael Ball's Count Fosco. The musical will officially open Nov. 17.
According to production notes, The Woman in White concerns "a dashing young man, employed as the art tutor to two devoted sisters, [who] is stranded at a remote railway cutting. Out of the darkness looms a woman, a mysterious figure dressed in white, desperate to share a chilling secret. He and the sisters soon find themselves trapped in a web of betrayal and greed, the victims of a seemingly flawless crime. Together they will need all their resourcefulness and courage to outwit a hugely charismatic and ingenious villain. As the compelling plot twists and turns, low villainy vies with high romance in a world where nothing is as it first appears and where it is impossible to know who to trust."
Rapper The Game has been arrested, accused of causing a scene at a mall and refusing to remove a Halloween mask.
"I got arrested for signing autographs," the 25-year-old rapper told WFMY-TV after he was released on $500 bail. "Signing a little girl's autograph got me arrested." But police said The Game, real name Jayceon Taylor, and a group of companions behaved disruptively and swearing Friday at Four Seasons Town Centre. He was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. At one point, police said, his companions were sprayed with pepper spray when they surrounded officers in a threatening manner.
Mall security officers said the rapper was wearing a full-face Halloween mask and cursing loudly, and refused to leave when asked. When police arrived, Taylor continued to act up and was arrested, a police statement said.
The Game said officers overreacted. "They thought I was Rodney King, man. It was a case of mistaken identity," he told WFMY. "It's unfair, man. Their behavior's unfair."
Broadway's golden duo of Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick set a record of $20 million in advance bookings for their return to Broadway as "The Odd Couple" but the opening night drew mixed reviews.
Reviews ranged from "sluggish" and "serviceable" to "hilarious." The New York Sun rated it "a handful of decent laughs from two stars staying firmly in their comfort zone" -- a comment echoed in many reviews.
The show was considered Broadway's hottest this year after the stars of the acclaimed Broadway musical "The Producers" signed on for Neil Simon's much-produced 1965 play, which was also a hit 1968 movie and a television series in the 1970s.
Ticket scalpers were getting $1,000 and more for seats and advance ticket sales were the highest-ever for a non-musical.

Janet Jackson has been exposed -- and this time, Justin Timberlake is nowhere to be seen.
A video clip showing Jackson sunbathing naked has been circulating on the Internet and was still playing on some Web sites Thursday. The 40-second paparazzi video was shot from bushes near the singer. Jackson's publicist didn't return a call Thursday from The Associated Press for comment.
Her lawyers were reportedly attempting to have the video taken off the Web. On one site, a freeze-frame was still up Thursday, but the video link had been taken down -- replaced with the message "removed because lawsuits aren't really my thing."
The exact source of the video and when it was shot was unclear. Photos taken at the same time popped up online last year.
--Thanks for the tip, Ren.
Britney Spears had some harsh advice for her hubby regarding his nascent singing career: Dont get your hopes up. Kevin Federline recently brought home some music hed recorded and he played it for Spears, according to the new issue of In Touch Weekly.

He seemed kind of out of it, a witness told the mag. Everyone was like, Go home to your family. Isnt it a bit soon to be out partying?
Actress Kim Cattrall is set to unveil a new TV special on human sexuality, to coincide with the release of her book Sexually Intelligent.
