Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt
‘WE’RE NOT SPLITTING UP!’
Although the traditional gift for one-year wedding anniversaries is paper, don’t expect Heidi Montag to deliver any to husband Spencer Pratt-divorce papers that is. Reports that Montag wants to move on with her acting career and has moved out of their Pacific Palisades home are untrue, the couple tell Scoop exclusively: “We’re not splitting up.” Despite drama galore, including her 10 plastic-surgery procedures and her own admission in the trailer for the sixth and final season of MTV’s The Hills that divorce was an option, Montag insists she was “being dramatic. I love Spencer with all my heart.” And he feels the same way: “I love my wife more now than I ever thought I could.” With the show that made them famous now entering its final season, the pair are excited to move on. That fact was made abundantly clear at a March 27 photo shoot with the Hills cast, where Montag showed up with a security team and refused to be in group shots with the rest of the cast. “I’m so happy [the show] is over,” she says. “This will be the first time people can truly see us for who we are.” The duo’s new focus? Montag has already been snapped filming Just Go with It with Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. “It’s time for me to hang up all the drama like fighting and divorce talk with Spencer and become the mogul I am.”

NEW YORK BACHELOR PAD
Putting the buff in design buff, Gerard Butler shows off his “masculine and raw” two-story loft in the May issue of Architectural Digest. The 3,300-sq.-ft. space in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood-with a home theater and numerous chandeliers-can handle crowds, but he prefers peace. “I use my apartment as somewhere to retreat and spend time on my own.” Sorry, ladies.
‘NEEDS HELP MORE THAN EVER’
After nearly a week of L.A. partying until 6 a.m., friends worry Lindsay Lohan, 23, is spiraling further out of control: “She needs help more than ever.” Although Lohan is still attending her court-ordered weekly alcohol education program, she has been seen falling and slurring at late-night parties. Mom Dina maintains her daughter is fine-and focused on fashion projects. “She’s busy with her 6126 clothing line and her new handbag line. And she booked a film.”
Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes
MOVING ON BUT NOT OUT
Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes are going their separate ways-but they’re still close. Literally. While the actress, 34, prepares to shoot HBO’s Mildred Pierce in N.Y.C. this month, Mendes, 44, will also be in town staying just one floor beneath the family’s apartment to be near their son Joe, 6, and her daughter Mia, 9, from Winslet’s previous marriage. Friends of Mendes’ scoff at allegations that his friendship with actress Rebecca Hall caused the split. And reports that Winslet is desperate to flee New York for England are unfounded, says a friend. “People are trying to drive more of a wedge between them.”
SHOULD ELIN GO TO THE MASTERS?
Tiger Woods, 34, announced last month that he’ll return to golf at the Masters in Augusta, Ga., April 8-but for now, don’t expect to see wife Elin, 30.

It wasn’t her birthday, but Katy Perry pulled out the stops for pal Perez Hilton, who partied with Justin Bieber and Liza Minnelli.
