Lindsay Lohan Moves Next Door to Ex
After a lengthy stint in rehab, Lindsay Lohan has moved into a new house in Venice, California only to discover her new home is right next door to her ex Samantha Ronson. The troubled actress says she had "no idea" her new pad was right next door to her former gal-pal. Lohan says she only discovered her new neighbor was Ronson when she ran into the celebrity DJ while unpacking her belongings. Ronson was also taken aback when she discovered Lohan was her new neighbor. Lohan is reportedly “open to moving” to keep the peace with her former lover, that is if she’s allowed to break the lease she just signed. [NY Daily News]
Science is a Step Closer to Finding a Cure for Baldness
Scientists have discovered the cause of male baldness, which may result in a cure for baldness being developed sooner rather than later. A team of researchers at the University of Pennsylvania believes that baldness is not simply a lack of hair, but a defect in the way the hair is created. Men who are bald are not actually hairless, they have hair it’s just so microscopic that it appears invisible. Researchers say the fault lies in the stem cell that creates the new hair. Dr George Cotsarelis, who led the research said, “This implies that there is a problem in the activation of stem cells converting progenitor cells in bald scalp. The fact that there are normal numbers of stem cells in bald scalp gives us hope for reactivating those stem cells.” Scientists are currently working on a topical cream that will jolt the defective stem cells back to their normal hair growing capabilities.

Toni Braxton recently filed for bankruptcy and this has forced the sexy singer to find new ways to make some extra spending money. Braxton took to her Twitter last night to consult her fans if she should strip down for a Playboy pictorial spread. She tweeted: “New Year, New opportunities. So I have been considering taking up Playboy’s offer to feature me on their cover this year. What you think?” YES! Being $50 million in debt sure does make celebrities do awesome things.

ESPN 3D Has Romantic Timing
Nothing says “Happy Valentine's Day" quite like a romantic night by ESPN’s brand new 3D channel. That’s why the Worldwide Leader in Sports/romance has decided to launch its newest channel on February 14th. “As we continue to expand the number of 3D events on the channel, it made sense operationally to transition ESPN 3D to a 24-7 network. We've been very pleased with the rate at which our affiliates have adopted ESPN 3D in its first year and we continue to look for new ways to serve fans, advertisers and affiliates with the best 3D sports content available," said the network's executive VP Sean Bratches. You had us at “24-7,” Sean. [TG Daily]
Kurt Warner and Brett Favre engage in Hilarious Old Man Fight
Everybody has an opinion on Brett Favre. Including Kurt Warner. The decorated quarterback recently said “I think he did [tarnish his legacy]. Not only this season, but the last few seasons, going back and forth [on retirement] and bouncing to a few different teams. I think about it, and I have to really think hard to think back to when he was a Green Bay Packer and when he played his best football and was in Super Bowls and when he became the Brett Favre we all know.” Damn, Kurt.
