Report: A Fortune in Jewelry Swiped from Julianne Moore's Home

ABC/MATT BROWN(NEW YORK) -- Julianne Moore personally carried her shiny new Emmy award statuette in a paper bag to keep it safe on a recent flight, but a New York Post story claims the actress should have been equally protective of her bling at home.

Nearly $130,000 worth of jewelry was reportedly swiped from Moore's New York City apartment, the paper notes.  Ten missing items include a $33,000 platinum Cartier tennis bracelet, as well as four watches from the high-end retailer priced at nearly $80,000.

The Post reports workmen had easy access to the Oscar winner's West Village brownstone for nearly two months over the summer while renovations were underway.

Moore was in Toronto at the time the bling went missing.

Report: Lindsay Lohan a Suspect in Jewelry Theft

Jonathan Leibson/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Lindsay Lohan must be experiencing déjà vu.  The Mean Girls star, who's on informal probation in connection with a 2011 stolen necklace case, is considered a suspect in another jewelry theft, according to TMZ.com.

The website previously reported that Lohan was interviewed by police about a week ago after she attended a get-together and slept at a Hollywood Hills home whose owner claimed that expensive jewelry had been stolen from him. 

TMZ now says that Lohan and her assistant, Gavin Doyle, are suspects in the theft of $100,000 worth of watches and sunglasses from the home.

Los Angeles detectives reportedly reached out to the duo's lawyer in an effort to interview them, but were rebuffed.

TMZ further notes that the home owner, Sam Magid, is now telling authorities that nothing was stolen, but police believe they have witnesses who say Lohan and her assistant took jewelry.

Last year, Lohan pleaded no contest to misdemeanor grand theft after she was accused of stealing a necklace from a Venice, Calif., jewelry store.

Meanwhile, TMZ is also reporting that the Santa Monica Police Department suspects Lohan lied to them about the circumstances of her rear-ending a semi truck back in June. 

Lohan reportedly told officers she wasn't behind the wheel -- but the gossip site says cops are "convinced" she was.  If she is found to have been lying to cops, she could face a year in jail, TMZ reports.

Pregnant Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio Strips for Diamond Ad

Mark Sullivan/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- It turns out even when pregnant all a supermodel needs is a few well-placed jewels. In a new ad for the Vivaria jewelry line, Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio traded in push-up bras for diamonds.

Ambrosio, who is visibly pregnant with her second child, posed wearing little besides a few rings, bracelets and earrings from the Vivaria line. Shot by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the campaign is one of the few jobs Ambrosio has taken on while pregnant.

However, even a supermodel has to pay the bills and Ambrosio plans on hitting the catwalk again after her son is born.

“I already have jobs planned for afterwards, so hopefully will be back in shape,” she told British Vogue.

Ambrosio, who already has a daughter Anja, revealed last month on Facebook that she and her husband are expecting a boy, writing, “We really tried to keep it a surprise but we were too anxious! Soon, we will have a little boy to rock our world!!”

Report: Lindsay Lohan Expected to Get Probation in Theft Case

AL SEIB/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Lindsay Lohan will reportedly avoid jail time and is expected to receive probation when she pleads no contest to a misdemeanor theft charge on Wednesday.

Lohan is accused of stealing a necklace from a Venice, California jewelry store in January.

RadarOnline.com quotes sources as saying an attorney for the Mean Girls star met with a prosecutor and Judge Stephanie Sautner on Monday to discuss the case, and all parties agreed to keep Lohan out of jail.

The website quotes a source as saying, “Lindsay knows she dodged a major bullet.  She doesn’t like the fact she’ll be on probation for another year, but it beats being in state prison.”

Lohan is currently performing some 400 hours of community service for violating her probation for a pair of 2007 DUI convictions.  She was also sentenced to 120 days in jail for the violation, but is appealing that penalty.

RadarOnline reports that Judge Sautner is expected to allow Lohan to serve the 120 days at home if she wears an ankle bracelet to monitor her whereabouts, and will also allow her to work on movies during the day.

Paris Hilton Sued over Stolen Jewels

Marcel Thomas/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- "They're hot." That's the Paris Hilton-esque assessment from an insurance company now suing Hilton over more than $60,000 worth of once-stolen bling it says the socialite hasn't returned. The pricey items were lent to Hilton by jeweler Damiani back in 2007, but were swiped during a robbery at Hilton's home in 2008.

The police recovered the items after busting up a high-profile robbery ring in 2009. Cops gave the treasures back to Hilton, but Allianz Global insurers say Hilton never returned the items to Damiani. The lawsuit claims she's ignored the insurance company's requests to return the items.

Report: Lindsay Lohan Offered 60 to 90 Days in Jail

AL SEIB/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- The judge presiding over Lindsay Lohan's grand theft case has reportedly told the actress he would sentence her to 60 to 90 days in jail if she accepted a plea deal. Lohan's latest legal trouble stems from accusations she stole a necklace valued at $2,500 from a Venice, California jewelry store Jan. 22.

RadarOnline reports a source close to the situation says Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz has told the Mean Girls star she would serve the sentence in county jail.

Judge Schwartz told Lohan at a hearing last week that she has until March 23 to take a plea deal.  If she does, she would plead guilty or no contest to a grand theft charge at a March 25 hearing.

Lohan has previously indicated she will not accept a plea deal.  If she doesn't change her mind, a hearing will be held April 22, during which another judge will determine if there's enough evidence for the star to stand trial for allegedly stealing the pricey piece of jewelry.

The judge would also determine whether the alleged theft violated the terms of Lohan's probation in her 2007 DUI cases.  She could face up to three years in state prison if convicted.
