Lindsay Lohan has seen the light at the end of the courtroom! At her latest probation hearing — hopefully her second to last — the starlet earned praise for her progress from a judge and got encouragement to keep up the good work in completing her community service requirements.

“Miss Lohan, you’re in the home stretch,” the Los Angeles judge proclaimed Wednesday. “Your probation officer is pleased. You seem to be getting your life back on track, and that’s what we all hoped for.”

The judge said she believes she has witnessed “positive change” in LiLo, who has put in the court’s required time commitments at therapy sessions and doing volunteer work at the morgue.

As long as she fulfills her remaining community service obligations by the time of her final scheduled probation hearing, the “Mean Girls” star will be on unsupervised probation by the end of next month.

“After March 29, all you have to do is obey all laws, stay out of trouble and move on with your life,” the judge enthused.

Granted, given the starlet’s track record, that might be a bit of a long shot. But Lindsay, you’ve come so far — please don’t mess this up now!

In Harmony?

Lea Michele and Cory Monteith are an onscreen couple on “Glee,” and now the singer-actor-dancer pair are allegedly dating in real life!

The multi-talented performers had a romantic Valentine’s Day meal together in Los Angeles, multiple onlookers told Life&Style.

“They were into each other all night,” one gawker relayed. “She was very happy, flirting and touching Cory a lot. He just stared at her with puppy-dog eyes.”

A crew member on the hit musical show confides, “Cory is totally into her.”

Lea, who split with long-term beau Theo Stockman in September, confided to British Glamour — while she was still in the relationship — that if she were to have a romance with “anybody” on set, it would have happened with Cory.

“The moment I met him, I thought, ‘This boy is very cute,’” Lea said.

“But he’s like my big brother,” she added — again, while she was still in a relationship. Perhaps it’s not such a familial kind of affection after all?

Swift Denial

Despite the rumors, Taylor Swift and Zac Efron made it clear to Ellen DeGeneres that they are definitely not dating. The “Lorax” co-stars get along great, but reject rumors they’re an item.

“We are not a couple,” the country singer declared. “He’s awesome. We are not a couple, though.”

“You hear people get together when they’re shooting movies, co-stars,” Taylor allowed. “But not, like, animated co-stars — you know what I’m saying? ‘Oh, my God, as we were recording our voice-overs on separate coasts, we really connected.’”

And their respective Valentine’s Day activities made it crystal clea they’re not a couple.

“I actually had a pathetic single girls party,” the “You Belong to Me” singer admitted. “That’s actually what it was called.”

“That’s so different than what single guys do,” Zac said, recalling that on V-Day he attended a film screening, “then cooked some dinner.”

OK, Zac, we get it — you’re dreamy. You don’t have to belabor the point by gratuitously mentioning that you cook.
