Some mornings I start clicking around on the internet, the modern equivalent of thumbing through the newspaper, and something magical happens. Today, that article that made magic happen was from the UK paper the Mirror, with the headline "Lindsay Lohan to Convert to Judaism."

Lindsay, who is much more famous these days for her rocky relationship with DJ Samantha Ronson than for her acting or singing careers, has kept herself a tabloid fixture.Ronson was certainly not unknown before she started dating the starlet – she is the sister of musician Mark Ronson and fashion designer Charlotte Ronson. Her DJing fee has gone up significantly since hooking up with Lohan, and the couple makes extra money by combining their forces and having Lohan host a party Ronson is DJing.  

Now Lohan, who dabbled in Kabbalah back when red string bracelets were the accessory du jour for Hollywood’s younger set, is reportedly interested in converting to Judaism. She and Ronson were spotted attending services together at a synagogue in London last week, and Lohan has reportedly updated her Facebook status to "I’m converting." 

Will it be a race to the mikveh between Lindsay and Ivanka Trump (who is rumored to be converting in order to marry boyfriend Jared Kushner)? What about wild card Leonardo DiCaprio, who might have to convert in order to marry his girlfriend, Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli? Forget about Marquee or Nobu – synagogues might be the place to have the best celebrity sightings.
