Lauren Conrad is going back to the beach.
LC, the author, designer, and beauty blogger who got her start on the MTV reality show "Laguna Beach," has plunked down $8.5 million for some luxe digs in her hometown, according to real estate website Zillow.
The 28-year-old and her fiancé of five months, law student William Tell, should have plenty of room in the residence. The 2,910-square-foot abode has three bedrooms, four bathrooms, and sits on almost half an acre. The newly remodeled house within a gated community features breathtaking views — just like the ones we saw on the opening credits for Conrad's "Hills" precursor — as well as wood floors, beamed ceilings, and easy access to the beach.
Not bad for a third home, eh? Conrad also owns a penthouse in Beverly Hills and a single-family home in the upscale L.A. neighborhood of Brentwood. Eat your heart out, Stephen Colletti!

Lindsay Lohan's comeback is looking less and less likely. The 27-year-old tabloid star has been to rehab six times and arrested almost as many since 2007. Oprah Winfrey seems to have offered her a lifeboat by airing a new, eight-part docu-series, "Lindsay," about the actress attempting to rebuild her life, on the OWN network that premieres Sunday, March 9. Though everyone love a good comeback story (see Britney Spears or Robert Downey Jr.), is it too late for even the Big O herself to change people's minds about Lindsay, or make them care about her at all? Here are eight things the once promising actress can do to win back her fans and make her star burn bright again: 1. Take a break from Dina: Lindsay's divorced parents, Dina and Michael Lohan, who have each had their own drunken driving arrests since their daughter's been famous, have not been the greatest influences on their daughter. Michael, the subject of Lindsay's song "Confessions of a Broken Heart (Father to Daughter)," has long struggled with addiction and in his relationship with Lindsay. However, he was reportedly the one who called the cops when Dina and Lindsay, who often party together, got into a heated argument in October 2012. (It surely wasn't the only row they've ever had!) The "Lindsay" preview shows the actress telling Michael, "You weren't good for me for a long time in my life." She should deliver that same message to her mother.

Then: Super hot "Vampire Diaries" actor and animal activist Ian Somerhalder flashed his fab abs and offered a kiss to one adorable, lucky dachshund in an undated, not-so-old pic that he shared on Facebook. "#TBT pocket pup!" he captioned it.
Now: The smoldering, 35-year-old actor is still trying to save the world's animal population, one creature at a time, through his animal rights-focused Ian Somerhalder Foundation. He was even honored by the Humane Society in 2012 for the attention that he's brought to animals, whether by rescuing dogs or taking his cat for long walks on the beach. So, no, this throwback doesn't look as old as many of the others out there, but we didn't think anyone would mind…

Actor Seth Rogen is a lazy, pot-smoking man-child. We can say that, because that's how he described himself while testifying before elected leaders in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday.
Though you might think the 31-year-old star of "This Is the End" and "Pineapple Express" was paying a visit to Capitol Hill to discuss the legalization of marijuana, he actually wanted to talk about his personal experience with Alzheimer's at a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing.
Rogen and his wife of two years, Lauren Miller, started Hilarity for Charity in 2011 to help educate Americans and raise money for Alzheimer's research after Miller's mother was diagnosed with the disease several years ago at the age of 55.

Whoever said there's no such thing as bad publicity never met Twitter. Or Instagram. Or Facebook. It takes less than 140 characters to share a thought with the world — whether or not it's been carefully contemplated (and usually it hasn't been). An eyebrow-raising quote from a years-old interview can easily resurface online and blow up anew. To put it simply: news travels fast. For brands that increasingly rely on Hollywood stars to serve as spokespeople, the situation is a tricky one. Consider the recent controversies of "Duck Dynasty's" Phil Robertson, who made offensive comments about race and homosexuality in an interview with GQ, or of LGBT advocate Macklemore, whose past attitudes on equality issues were questioned after the website Jezebel dug up (possibly sarcastic) tweets he wrote in 2009, before he hit the mainstream. Last year, Paula Deen demonstrated just how quickly a celebrity can be taken down after statements she gave during a deposition for a civil lawsuit brought by a former employee were published in the media, revealing that, among other things, the Southern cook had used the N-word and made racist jokes. In less than two weeks, Food Network, Sears, Kmart, Target, and Home Depot cut ties with the butter-loving chef.

Kimora and Russell Simmons are probably the friendliest exes you ever will meet.
The pair, who split in 2006 after eight years of marriage and share two daughters, are still so close that on Wednesday, it was Russell who decided to set the record straight regarding a rumor about his former wife. After several gossip sites reported that Kimora was dating the rapper birdman, Russell took to Twitter and announced she was married to banker Tim Leissner.
"All of us love @OfficialKimora but the fact is she is happily married," he tweeted. "Tim is has been family for a while now. #gossipcop…." He followed up with, "Oh. And.. Tim is not Russian. Lol."
This is the second marriage for Kimora, 38. After her split with Simmons, she was in a relationship with actor Djimon Hounsou for more than five years. They share a young son, 4-and-a-half-year-old Kenzo, but never tied the knot.

Are the chocolates and roses just not doing it for you this Valentine's Day? Then check out this swoon-worthy snapshot Kelly Clarkson has shared of her precious new puppy that's guaranteed to make your heart melt.
Everyone ....this is our new little puppy Wyatt. He can't replace my Joplin that passed away but he's pretty great! pic.twitter.com/MZil5muqrW
Just as sweet is the backstory: Clarkson brought home Joplin, a Labradoodle, in May 2011 and even called him her "soulmate" on Twitter. In November 2013, the 31-year-old revealed the sad news that she'd lost him. "My best friend died yesterday," she wrote on Twitter. "Joplin was special. He fought his whole life to survive & now he can rest. I loved him."
