Yeah, you know Bret Michaels took the Celebrity Apprentice title. But what celeb news did you miss this weekend? Here's the scoop.

Julia Roberts hit Oprah today to chat about her new movie, Eat Pray Love (out August 13), growing older, and naturally, her kids. "My favorite thing is just watching them wake up and watching them realize the day come upon them," Roberts tells Oprah. "It's just ... fascinating to me." Can't wait? Here's a sneak peek.

Paula Abdul may or may not appear on the American Idol finale this season -- but she's all set to make her triumphant return to TV. She's signed on to produce and judge a new CBS talent competition called Got to Dance, based on the UK hit of the same name. The singer and reality star was a choreographer of the likes of Janet Jackson and Michael Jackson before launching her career straight up the music charts.

Facing further legal woes, Lindsay Lohan landed in LA after a weekend of partying at the Cannes Film Festival in the South of France, where she was promoting her turn as porn star Linda Lovelace in the drama Inferno. The troubled actress was due to appear at a hearing regarding her current probation -- through August 2011 -- but claimed she couldn't return to the United States in time because her passport was stolen. (Not because she wanted to live it up at Cannes.) She's set to appear at a rescheduled hearing this morning after paying $100,000 bail, and it's likely she'll be subjected to an alcohol monitoring bracelet and weekly drug tests as the renegotiated terms of her probation.

Well, that was quick. We may have lost Lost (but its hardy hunks are hardly forgotten), 24, Heroes, and the like, but we know we're gonna get more Glee. Show producers announced a third season pick-up for the Fox comedy at the network's media upfronts this weekend. "It's been a whirlwind year -- from shooting the pilot to performing at the White House to the concert tour that began last week -- and yet we all feel like we've just begun this amazing musical journey," producer Ryan Murphy told the press. "We think our Gleeks worldwide are going to love what we'll have in store for them in seasons two and three."
