Hayden Panettiere

Hayden Panettiere hit up the Critics' Choice Awards on Sunday night and she was absolutely glowing!!

The 26-year-old momma stopped along the red carpet to talk about her ongoing struggle with postpartum depression since welcoming her baby girl Kaya Evdokia in December 2014 with fiancé Wladimir Klitschko.

As for her first U.S. red carpet appearance since seeking treatment back in October, she told People the experience felt "so new:"

"It feels different for me because of things that I've gone through recently, over the last year. I've really gone, ‘You know what, I've been in this industry for so long, forget it!' I've been hiding myself. Just putting out the smiling face, showing people this, and allowing that veil to come down — it's like a weight off my shoulders. I'm 26 years old. I'm a mom. I don't need to be afraid of what people are going to think. I saw how much people rallied behind me when I was honest, and I didn't know that honesty could be such a gift."

The Heroes alum's decision to go public with her illness made all the difference:

"Honestly, when I said [I had PPD] the first time on Kelly and Michael I didn't plan on it. We talked about it for a second, but it was just like a conversation, and I was like, ‘Why should I be ashamed or hide when it costs so much?' It costs me so much to hide. It costs you so much to lie."

And now she's becoming the mother her daughter can look up to:

Lamar was moved to a private rehab facility!

This is a huge milestone for Lamar Odom!

Us Weekly just revealed that the 36-year-old was released from L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Wednesday, and will actually be continuing his care at a private rehab facility!

This is a big deal for the NBA baller, considering he's been in various hospitals ever since October, when he was first found unconscious at a legal Nevada brothel after an apparent drug overdose.

But now that the ailing athlete has made some significant progress in his recovery, he's out of the hospital and heading to rehab!

And it turns out that the sports star's estranged wife, Khloé Kardashian was actually the one who stealthily moved him to the private center that's not far from her own home.

Apparently, it was so secret that Lamar's family didn't even know that he was leaving Cedars-Sinai!

Regardless, we're really glad that the former basketball player has improved so much that he no longer needs to be hospitalized!

| Filed under: John StamosDrugsHoward SternRehabAlcoholAddictionFuller House

John comes clean about his addictions.

John Stamos is coming clean.

Opening up on Howard Stern's show Monday morning, the Grandfathered actor spoke about his "horrific DUI" and his recent stint in rehab.

While the actor previously shared it was a "turning point" for him, the 52-year-old continued to reveal he has a sense of being "even" now.

And he actually admitted the hardest part about rehab wasn't just kicking booze, but actually a sedative used to help patients with insomnia, Ambien!

The Fuller House star divulged:

"I was on you know, some medications for anti-depressants and that damn Ambien. I'm so happy to be off that… I don't take anything, but my memory was starting to get really f*cked up too from that. And that was the hardest thing to kick by the way. Booze and whatever, that happened, but the Ambien was tough."

Sounds like John has definitely overcome a lot in the past year.

Though it's interesting to note that the actor made no mention of GHB, the drug that was in his system at the time of his arrest for driving under the influence back in June.

Hopefully he's kicked that too.

Kate Major Is Legally Separating From Michael Lohan Because He Supposedly Sabotaged Her Rehab Treatment!

| Filed under: Legal MattersLove LineMichael LohanRehabBreakups

Does the drama ever end with these two?

We knew that Kate Major and Michael Lohan haven't been together for a while, but now the famous father's ex is making it official.

The 33-year-old has filed legal separation papers from Lindsay Lohan's dad, even though she says they actually separated October.

And the blonde is also claiming that her estranged husband has been trying to sabotage her recent rehab stay.

According to the court docs, the momma-of-two checked in to a treatment facility earlier this month, most likely because a judge ordered her to get help after her violent outburst on a Jetblue flight last month.

Since she's been in rehab, the Florida native alleges her ex has been calling nonstop in an attempt to get in touch, and get updates about her current condition.

And on Dec 2, Kate claims her baby daddy sent her a teddy bear with a cell phone inside, even though the facility doesn't allow mobile devices or outside calls.

She's hoping to get legal custody of their kids, joint physical custody, and spousal support. It'll be interesting to see if a judge grants those requests, considering both parents recently lost full custody of their children.

So sad.

This is truly tragic.

Kristin Cavallari's brother Michael was recently found dead in Utah, after he was missing for about two weeks. And now, sources are saying that the 30-year-old was hoping to make a big step in his battle with alcohol addiction and mental health issues.

The brother of the Laguna Beach alum was supposedly "really turning his life around" before he disappeared, and was even talking about going to rehab.

An insider revealed to People:

"Most recently, Mike felt he wasn't able to maintain sobriety alone and needed to go into a rehab facility. He told his mom this as soon as he was released from his detainment."

The confidante confessed that The Hills star's struggling sibling had been even working with his father, Dennis, in real estate development.

The source also added that Michael's family is in the process of planning his memorial service. But first, they need to figure out when Kristin's baby girl will be able to travel safely.

Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this terrible tragedy.

RHOBH's Kyle Richards Hopes Sister Kim Will Be 'Happy & Sober For The Rest Of Her Life'

| Filed under: RehabMental HealthFamilyKyle RichardsReality TVKim Richards

Kim and Kyle Richards

We hope so, too!

RHOBH star Kim Richards entered rehab for alcoholism eight months ago, and she seems to be on the right track according to her sister Kyle Richards — which has significantly helped repair their relationship!

Kyle opened up in this week's People mag, saying her sister is focused on the future:

"I spoke to Kim the other day and she was confident and strong. I was like, 'Yes! Let's keep you here.' There are no guarantees, but I'm excited and hopeful."

While Mauricio Umansky's wife admits they used to fight growing up, Kathy Hilton's sisters have recently bonded after being estranged for a year in light of Kim's condition.

Kyle admits being on the Bravo show taught her a lot about her sister's struggles with alcohol abuse:

"I used to be very angry with Kim about her issues. We had so many fights over the years. But seeing the show in season 1 opened my eyes a lot. People were like, 'Poor Kim,' and I was like, 'Wait, I thought we were the victims!' It made me realize, alcoholism is a disease and she can't help this. It taught me a lot."

When Kim was arrested back in April for public intoxication, Kyle says she was completely "in shock." But the 46-year-old says Kim has made tremendous strides but still will face many obstacles:

"There are no guarantees for someone who is an alcoholic. I'm always waiting for the end. 'When is this over? When can we put this away and start having fun?' But we can't ever do that. And that's something I've had to learn. I just hope Kim will be healthy, happy and sober for the rest of her life. She's got four amazing kids, she's an incredible mom and she has a lot to look forward to."

That's sisterly love right there!

Since Kim is returning to our TV screens, we're sure we will get to see a lot of her journey to recovery!
