Lindsay Lohan really needs to get a job.

With all this free time on her hands, the celebrity clearly can't steer clear of trouble. Case in point #145? The one-time actress stands accused of swiping the formula of 11 herbs and spices used for her Sevin Nyne spray tan line.

Jennifer Sunday is suing the "workaholic" and entrepreneur Lorit Simon in federal court for breach of contract, theft of trade secrets, civil conspiracy, intentional interference with contractual relations and deceptive and unfair trade practices.

She wants some serious payback.

Sunday says she had a deal with Simon's company for a tan line but balked at Simon and Lindsay's request to buy the formula. Sunday says she was shocked to discover her "sunless secret" ingredients used in the $35 Lohan-branded Sevin Nyne.

"It was initially envisioned [Sunday] would manufacture the product and ship out the spray to Ms. Simon's company," plaintiff attorney Marcia Cohen tells E!.

"Now we see Ms. Lohan taking credit for having created Ms. Sunday's formula."

A copy of Michael Jackson's death certificate has been released. The cause of the superstar's death, which took place June 25 at age 50, says "deferred."

Jackson died of cardiac arrest two weeks ago. Official autopsy results were inconclusive, pending further toxicology screening that has not come back yet.

The death certificate says Forest Lawn Cemetery is a "temporary" disposition of his body. Michael's final burial spot is pending at an unknown location.

Michael Jackson was given a fitting farewell at a star-studded, poignant and sad memorial service yesterday at the Staples Center in downtown L.A.

A few other interesting facts from the doc:

  • Jackson's occupation is listed as "musician."
  • His type of business is "entertainment."
  • Years in occupation: 45 (!).
  • Race: Black.
  • The informant, or the person who gave the information for Michael Jackson's death certificate, is listed as La Toya Jackson, his sister.
  • The place of residence is not listed as the Holmby Hills home he was renting, rather, it's listed as his parents' home in Encino.

Michael Jackson celebrated his final Christmas with his three children - and Prince Michael Jackson I, 12, Paris Jackson, 11, and Blanket, 7, Us Weekly reports.

That was assumed even before they unearthed the photo below - but one new and interesting fact is that, apparently, Dr. Arnold Klein, was there as well.

Klein also brought Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher, a close friend, as a surprise guest for the kids to Jackson's $100,000-a-month Holmby Hills, Calif. home.

Fellow guest Stephen Price, another close friend of Arnold Klein, says that Jackson told Klein that Paris, Prince and Prince Michael II were fans of Star Wars.

Around 9 p.m. on Christmas Eve, "Michael brought the kids down in their pajamas and said, 'This is Princess Leia,'" Price recalls. "They were so excited! She did her famous speech for them - the 'Help me, Obi-Wan' speech."

Price says of Jackson's kids, "They are the greatest kids you'll ever meet."

Dr. Arnold Klein employed Paris and Prince's mother, Debbie Rowe, for 23 years at his dermatology office. He is rumored to be their biological father. Us Weekly has even stated this has fact. However, neither he nor other sources have confirmed it.

The South Carolina Republican Party voted to censure embattled Gov. Mark Sanford for disappearing from the state to visit a mistress in Argentina.

But the party did not call for his resignation, an indication that Sanford may be able to hold on to power for the remaining 18 months of his term.

We just hope his racy emails go into the state's official archives.

Party leaders were divided during a closed-door meeting, with 22 members voting to censure Sanford, 10 calling for his resignation, and nine for no action.

The censure resolution states that a "formal admonishment" is necessary and that "barring further revelations" it will be the "last word on the matter."

So basically, because Mark Sanford was shady but probably didn't break any laws, and received a timely media-distracting boost from Sarah Palin and Michael Jackson, he's totally in the clear! Woo hoo! That was a close one!

"Today has brought a large measure of resolution to a sad chapter in our state party's history," state party chairman Karen Floyd said in a statement. "Republicans came together to speak with a unified voice, and now is the time for healing."

A Mark Sanford spokesman told reporters that "the governor fully appreciates the party's position and intends to work diligently to earn back its trust."

Funny, he made the same statement last week, only inserting "wife" instead of "party." No word if Jenny Sanford intends on making him "resign" as husband.

The party's reprimand comes nearly two weeks after Sanford returned from a secretive trip to Argentina and admitted his affair with Maria Belen Chapur.

When two stars of this magnitude go head to head in a celebrity fashion clash, there is no telling who will emerge victorious. Until you vote on it, that is.

Rihanna hit the streets of N.Y.C. for a day of shopping in her J Brand "Zombie" jeans, while Jessica Alba flaunted her new locks in similarly ripped pants.

Who wore the look better, the singer and part-time tattoo artist or the hot mom and part-time actress? Tell us below in our little informal survey ...

"I just wanted to say ... ever since I was born, daddy has been the best father ... you could ever imagine. And I just wanted to say I love him ... so much."

With these words just moments ago, Michael Jackson's daughter Paris spoke at the end of his memorial service, providing its most touching moment and best quote.

Flanked by Michael Jackson's brothers and his sister Janet Jackson, 11-year-old Paris took the microphone, voice trembling, and bid farewell to her dad.

Here's the video of Paris Jackson's poignant goodbye ...

Former U.S. figure skating champion Nicole Bobek has been charged with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in Hudson County, New Jersey.

Bobek, 31, won the women’s U.S. figure skating title in 1995. She was arrested last week in Florida as part of a raid on a major drug ring.

She was brought to New Jersey to appear in Central Judicial Processing Court via videolink Monday from the Hudson County Jail in Kearny, N.Y.

According to Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio, Nicole Bobek, who has homes in N.Y. and Florida, was involved in a northern New Jersey drug ring.

"She played a significant role in this operation," DeFazio told reporters.

Odds are Nicole Bobek isn't smiling like this in her jail cell.

DeFazio added that the crimes Nicole Bobek is accused of took place in New York and that 20 other people were arrested in connection to the drug ring.

"She was actively involved in the upper echelon of this ring," he added.

Bobek’s attorney, Sam DeLuca, entered a not guilty plea on behalf of the former figure skater, who is being held on $200,000 bail.

She faces up to 10 years in jail if she is convicted.

This story comes on the heels of another in which sports and criminal activity collide: Steve McNair and girlfriend Sahel Kazemi were found dead July 4.

Blake Lively is known for wearing ridiculously sexy outfits on the set of Gossip Girl, but the 21-year-old star doesn't do anything special to look good in them.

How much do you hate her right now, ladies?

"I do panic before I have to wear a really skimpy outfit, but I don't have enough willpower," she says of dieting in the August issue of UK Glamour Magazine.

"I had to do a scene in a bra and shorts for the first time in two years ... On the day of the shoot, I ate a pork burrito, chips and a coke. Afterwards, I thought, 'I probably shouldn't have done that.' But hey, whatever."

So maybe she doesn't eat right, but she exercises, right?

"I have never worked out, but I know you always feel better when you do," the blonde Burbank, Calif., native says, "so I'm planning on getting a trainer.”

Lively says despite all the cattiness that exists in Gossip Girl, on and off the set, she gets along very well with her costars: "We hang out after filming, and actually look forward to spending time together outside of work."

That includes her real-life leading man Penn Badgley, although she admits it wasn't always the case - she was unhappy when he was cast on the series at first.

"At first I was so upset that they hired him," she says.

"I actually poisoned the whole cast against him. But then they noticed that he was not a jerk and was actually a really nice, charming person. Almost immediately I realized that too, but it took me about a week to admit it."

Last night on The Bachelorette, Jillian Harris toured Spain trying to figure out which of her final four were in for the right reasons and the long haul.

In the end, the cutie finally made the decision Americans (and Canadians) have collectively been waiting for her to make for the past eight weeks.

But first, Jillian worried that Kiptyn Locke was too perfect and out of her league, whether Reid Rosenthal was ready to open up emotionally and start a life with her, or if she will ever come before Ed Swiderski's career. Valid concerns.

In Madrid, Kiptyn Locke revealed that “a proposal seems far off,” but the two sure had fun during a flamenco dance lesson and crashing a moped into a curb.

Smooth, it wasn't, but that was actually appealing for Kiptyn. In the end, Jillian declined to invite him to the Fantasy Suite, despite how much she likes him.

Way to play hard to get, Jill!

THE LAST THREE: Ed Swiderski, Kiptyn Locke and Reid Rosenthal.

Next stop? Seville, for a date with Reid Rosenthal. He was the only guy to fish for details about her other hometown dates, but Jill kept the heat on him, desperate to figure out what he’s feeling since Reid won't open up.

The most he could muster was how he is physically attracted to her and that she smells good, and he likes the direction things are headed. Fantasy Suite? Denied!

It was then Ed Swiderski's turn for a date in Sevilla. He detailed his decision to bolt The Bachelorette, only to come back in a move that wasn't staged whatsoever.

She was eating it up, despite feeling burned by that decision a few weeks back. Ed Swiderski even talked his way into the Suite to "catch up on lost time." OMG.

They'd still be sleeping in their clothes, however. Be strong, J.

Finally, it was Wes' turn ... to say feels comfortable around Spanish people because he had a #1 hit in Chihuahua, Mexico. Kudos to whoever wrote that line.

It only got worse from there. When Jillian asked if he'd move to Vancouver if he won, Wes Hayden awkwardly spilled a beer and changed the subject. So slick.

Jillian hoped things would be better during a fahn-cy dinner, but Wes Hayden pretty much admitted he came on The Bachelorette to help boost his music career.

Jillian Harris and Wes Hayden

Jillian's face says it all as Wes packs his bags.

He even unintentionally (or not) referred to Laurel Kagay as his girlfriend when Jilli grilled him for the 433rd time. Suffice it to say, the Fantasy Suite? No shot.

As the men waited at the rose ceremony, Wes showed his true colors one last time. After Kiptyn said "if it's me, keep it real guys," Wes responded, “If it’s me, know that I’ll be back home ... having lots of sex!” Crickets.

Wes Hayden then did get the boot, to the surprise of no one.

In the limo ride whisking him away, he downed a drink and gloated, “I’m the first guy ever to make the top four on The Bachelorette with a girlfriend” and said of the remaining fellas, “Them boys couldn’t so much as get a nibble in Texas.”

With Wes gone, who will win The Bachelorette?
