Lindsay Lohan is playing the numbers game again with her new self-tanning lotion.
After debuting her 6126 leggings line, Lohan is preparing to unveil her new self-tanner, called Sevin Nyne. (Maybe she should stick to numbers.) The name is inspired by Lohan's favorite numbers, according to New York magazine.

Tween queen Miley Cyrus has written songs about her broken heart, but in her new autobiography she writes about an actual heart affliction.
Cyrus has a condition called tachycardia, which causes her heart rate to speed up. "The type of tachycardia I have isn't dangerous," she writes in her new book, Miles to Go. "It won't hurt me, but it does bother me. There is never a time onstage when I'm not thinking about my heart."
The book also ...
Tyra Banks, America's Next Top Model
Tyra Banks has kept the Top Model momentum going, with last week's ratings up 11 percent over those of the previous season premiere. And according to the show's host, the 12th cycle is as — you guessed it — fierce as they come.
TVGuide.com: How does this season differ from past seasons?
Tyra Banks: Well, we are back in NYC for Cycle 12, and this season is fiercer than ever — seriously! The girls are actually put up in an apartment on the Upper East Side — which is so Gossip Girl! We have a really strong and unique mix of girls. There's also some very special celeb appearances ...
With all the fuss about Heath Ledger's Oscar-winning role as the Joker in The Dark Knight, it's easy to forget that the masterful performance wasn't his last. But the joke may be on fans who want to see the final frames of Ledger's career.
Ledger died on Jan. 22, 2008, in the middle of shooting Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, a fantasy about a travelling theater troupe. Ledger starred as a con man named Tony. Rather than let Ledger's death end the production, Gilliam completed the film using Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell to play different incarnations of the character. But even after all that, the film still has some obstacles to overcome before it can hit the big screen.
Parnassus, a $30 million production, has yet...
Sean Diddy Combs, Rihanna, Chris Brown
Sean "Diddy" Combs said he merely acted as a concerned friend and provided support when he offered his Miami home for Chris Brown and Rihanna to reunite a few weeks after Brown was accused of attacking his superstar girlfriend.
"If I can be there as a friend during hard times, then I'm gonna be there as a friend, but I don't know the exact particulars," the rap mogul said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday. "I'm not gonna do this or do that. It's a dark time for them and I was there ...
Julianna Margulies and George Clooney
George Clooney is notorious for on-set pranks, but he let his costars off easy during his return visit to ER's County General.
"There were none," Julianna Margulies told Us. "We shot everything in two days. We had no time. He was on a film schedule. I was coming from New York, and I had a baby to get back to, so there was no time for pranks."
Even without the jokes, Margulies, who played Clooney's love interest from 1994 to 2000, said she was happy to be back ...
Melrose Place fans are divided over the casting of Ashlee Simpson-Wentz in the show's upcoming CW reboot, but those who are angry have one person to blame: Bronx Mowgli.
The singer-actress took the gig to remain close to her three-month-old son, according to People. "She wanted something stable so she could be close to her baby," a friend of Simpson-Wentz said. "She was specifically looking for something in television as her next step, that filmed in Los Angeles, so she wouldn't have to be away from Bronx."
So is Ashlee giving up music for good?
Glenn Kessler, Damages
Damages fans have been slowly putting together the pieces of Ellen's hostage-at-gunpoint flash-forward all season, and when the final piece falls into place, big changes are coming.
"There's gonna be some major, major upheaval in Patty's life, and Ellen has some coming in her life as well," cocreator Glenn Kessler says. "The ground is going to shift considerably. Many of the things we've proposed throughout the season certainly do get knotted up, and these women end the season on very different ground than they started."
But Kessler doesn't get to just write the twists and turns heading Ellen's way — he literally plays a role in them as FBI Special Agent L.J. Werner. Along with his partner Agent Randall Harrison (Mario Van Peebles), Werner has been working Ellen as an informant against her boss. But Patty may not be the only one with secrets to uncover.
For weeks, we've seen ...
Paget Brewster, Criminal Minds
This week on CBS' Criminal Minds (Wednesdays at 9 pm/ET), Paget Brewster steps front and center when a rogue priest conjures up demons from Prentiss' past. Brewster gave us a preview of the episode, as well as mooned over upcoming guest star Alex O'Loughlin.
TVGuide.com: I hear we're getting a healthy helping of Prentiss this week.
Paget Brewster: Oh my god, it was exhausting! [Laughs] When you're on an ensemble show and you're messing around with everybody every day and you're not in every scene, and then all of a sudden you're in every scene, it's rough. I would not want to be Hugh Laurie.
TVGuide.com: The episode is titled "Demonology" and it says, "Prentiss has a personal connection to one of the victims in a series of deaths with religious overtones." Man, you can almost hear the thunderclap in the background.
Brewster: Basically we discover that a priest is performing exorcisms ...
