On Sunday night, the match-ups will be made and March Madness will officially begin. Sports headlines will be consumed by brackets, buzzer-beaters and basketball through early April.
It may not be America’s pastime - or have Madonna performing at halftime shows - but when the calendar flips to March, college basketball turns into a dramatic, pop culture spectacle.
For this week’s top five, it would be a shame on the eve of March Madness not to reflect on memorable basketball movies.These films, like the sport that they glorify, have entertained us with a very simple formula: a basket, a ball and a game filled with heartache and hope.
The new homeowners who snapped up the "Home Alone" house in Winnetka, Illinois, got quite a deal.
After going on the market last year with a list price of $2.4 million, CBS 2 reports that the home made famous in the 1990 film has been sold for $1.585 million.
The real estate agency involved hasn't released the identity of the new homeowner.
The blond worked well for her Marilyn Monroe-esque Playboy cover, but we do love that Lindsay Lohan's getting back to her ginger-tinged roots.
The 25-year-old was spotted in Beverly Hills Thursday with freshly tinted red locks. The shade isn't quite as deep as the red we grew accustomed to seeing on the actress in hits like "The Parent Trap" and "Mean Girls" - about the same color as LiLo's 'do in the photo below - but it's a reddish hue nonetheless.
Lohan's no stranger to experimenting with hair color, as we've seen her swap out her natural red for brown, black, blond, and then back again.
Is it a coincidence that Lohan has returned to the shade as she works hard to get her career back on track? Maybe.
In the meantime, the actress is relishing her "Saturday Night Live" ratings success. She tweeted Friday a remark from the Los Angeles Times, which reported that Lohan has had "the last laugh": "They insulted her looks. They made fun of her cue-card reading. But the haters can't say no one watched Lindsay Lohan on 'Saturday Night Live.'"
Britney Spears is one of the stars consistently mentioned whenever gossip about "The X Factor" begins to spread, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, Spears could be close to sealing a deal to judge.
Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid have said that they're likely going to add two women to the "X Factor's" judging panel, now that Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul are off the show.
Spears, along with Katy Perry, LeAnn Rimes and Janet Jackson, has been part of the circling rumors about who could potentially fill the empty spots since "The X Factor's" shake-up in January.
