Michael Lohan Planning a Lindsay Intervention

Michael Lohan, Lindsay’s dad, is reportedly planning an intervention in a last ditch effort to help his troubled daughter. The pair have a somewhat strained relationship over the years and Lindsay currently refuses to communicate with him. Michael told, “Since I found out what a horrible way Lindsay is in, and after finding out how drastic it has become, I immediately contacted the necessary people in Lindsay's circle, including her attorney as well as an attorney of my own. It is nobody's business when or how it will happen. Hopefully Lindsay, her attorney and the 'people' who influence her, will be on board. If not, the process will continue without them. I promise that!" Michael apparently planned for the intervention to occur this past weekend. However it had to be postponed due to Easter and difficulties with people’s schedules. [X17 Online]

Jesse James Leaves/Reenters Rehab

Jesse James recently went into rehab for sex addiction in a last bid effort to save his marriage to Sandra Bullock. After a week in a facility in Arizona, the West Coast Chopper owner checked himself out. According to Radar Online, the reality television star left the 45-day program after his estranged wife refused to take his phone call, which was part of a group therapy session. After a few days AWOL from rehab, James is back. Radar is reporting that today James has checked himself back into the facility. [Radar Online]

This is just straight up horrible. Madonna has been named the U.K'.s most played artist of the decade by the music licensing body PPL.  The chart, compiled for BBC Radio 2, was based on plays on television, radio, and in public places such as shops, pubs, and clubs between 2000 and 2009. Ironically enough, The Beatles came in at number two. This might be the saddest thing that I have ever typed. [Telegraph]

Tonight's NCAA Championship is a Lot Like David vs. Goliath (If Goliath was a Massive Prick that Nobody Liked)

College basketball takes center stage tonight when the Butler Bulldogs take on the heavily-favored Duke Blue Devils in a game that will ultimately decide whether or not good can defeat evil. Will Butler show the world that people from Indiana can ultimately be successful? Will Duke further show the world that their deal with Satan is stronger than ever? Is Coach K going to ever admit he shaved points in the United States-Angola Olympic game? Lots of storylines in Indianapolis tonight… But the big question is will Butler be able to cover the spread?
