Greg Giraldo tributes keep coming; Lindsay Lohan at Betty Ford Clinic
Three celeb-centric stories on our radar this afternoon...
1. Tributes for Greg Giraldo, who died Wednesday as the result of an accidental overdose, continue to flood the Web. He remains a trending topic on Twitter, and comics, including Denis Leary, Daniel Tosh and Aziz Ansari have added their tweets to the memorials. Jon Stewart's "Daily Show" was able to scramble yesterday afternoon to include a nice bit of eulogizing from Stewart, and the usual show-ending "Moment of Zen" was replaced with a "Moment of Greg":

2. Lindsay Lohan is rehabbing at the celeb-friendly Betty Ford Clinic, according to TMZ.com. Here's hoping the fifth time is the charm. Meanwhile, father Michael -- who yesterday berated ex-wife Dina for attempting to establish a conservatorship over Lilo -- is himself working to establish a conservatorship. "Dina and [manager Lou Taylor] have their hands in it, not their hearts," said Lohan. Meanwhile, another Lohan -- brother Daniel -- is perhaps speaking the most sense we've heard from a Lohan since Dina proclaimed herself "White Oprah." "People she was surrounded by," said Daniel in an interview with People, "enablers, leeches, whatever you'd like to call it -- made things very difficult." [TMZ, E! Online, People]
3. Paris Hilton boyfriend Cy Waits apparently ran over the foot of an overeager paparazzo Wednesday night. The couple left the scene of the accident because, according to Waits, he didn't realize he'd hit someone until a friend texted him with the news. So he returned and was either cited or slapped with a citizen's arrest by the injured pap. [TMZ]
Bonus: "Mad Men's" Vincent Kartheiser parties down with Minnesotans. This is SO something Pete Campbell would not do.
