The latest news on today's hottest celebrities ...

DEMI MOORE: Demi Moore has checked out of the Cirque Lodge treatment facility in Utah, a source close to the film actress told E! News.

The "Margin Call" and "Ghost" star went to the rehab center after a brief hospitalization following a seizure-like episode she suffered at a party Jan. 23.

E! News said Moore sought treatment for drug addiction and an eating disorder but has since left the facility and is now on vacation at an undisclosed location.

"She's in no rush to get back to LA," the insider said. "She's on total lock-down and only talking to a small group of people."

The 49-year-old "About Last Night" and "St. Elmo's Fire" actress is the mother of three grown daughters with her ex-husband, film star Bruce Willis. Her marriage to actor Ashton Kutcher recently ended.

MARIA SHRIVER: Broadcast journalist Maria Shriver and film star Arnold Schwarzenegger have no plans to reconcile, a source close to the former couple told

The pair "are not reconciling and not in counseling," an insider told the celebrity news Web site Thursday, shooting down media reports stating the former governor and first lady of California are giving their marriage another shot.

"They will continue to be seen together because of their family, but they are not reconciling," the unidentified source said, referring to the couple's four children.

Shriver filed for divorce last summer after 25 years of marriage, following Schwarzenegger's admission he fathered a child during an extramarital affair with a member of the family's household staff more than a decade ago.

BRISTOL PALIN: U.S. cable network Lifetime says it plans to air a series following Bristol Palin's life as a single mom raising a toddler in her native Alaska.

Palin, 21, is the daughter of 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. She is an author and a former contestant on "Dancing with the Stars," and is also is the mother of a 3-year-old son named Tripp.

The New York Post said "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp" will offer a "never-before-granted" look at Palin's life as a young mom.

Lifetime ordered 10 half-hour episodes of the show, which is to premiere this year, the Post said.

"From the first moment she was thrust into the public eye, Bristol and her son have been the subjects of a huge amount of curiosity and misunderstanding," Rob Sharenow, Lifetime's executive vice president of programming, said in a statement. "This show will reveal the real Bristol Palin and her journey as a daughter, a mother and a young woman making her way in the world."

JESSICA LANGE: "American Horror Story" co-creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed Jessica Lange will return for Season 2 of FX's edgy haunted-house drama.

Lange earned Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards for her portrayal of Constance Langdon in the series.

Murphy told the actress will play a new character in the show's sophomore season, which is to begin production in late July for a mid-October debut.

The writer-producer has said each season of the show will feature a new setting and cast.

"We have designed the second season of 'American Horror Story' completely around her character," Murphy told the Web site.

"Last year, Jessica came in with Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott. This will really be the Jessica Lange show, so I'm very excited about it. We are designing this amazing new opposite of the Constance character for her. She and I have spoken about different things. She has a lot of ideas, and has a lot of input into her character. She told me some things she has always wanted to play as an actress. She's a great collaborator and a great friend."
