Lindsay Lohan ‘passed out from exhaustion’ after working ’85 hours in 4 days’

I’m glad CB covered the latest cracktastrophe from Lindsay Lohan, because I’m really over it at this point. I guess I should say that I’m in a constant state of “Jesus, what did she do NOW?” with Lindsay at this point. This is the second week (IN A ROW) in which Lindsay did something dumb on a Friday afternoon after most people were done for the day. Two Fridays ago, she totaled her (rented) Porsche on the PCH. This Friday she was so “exhausted” she was unresponsive for hours. Allegedly. Sort of.

CB initially thought that this Friday’s incident was proof that Lindsay was going even further downhill fast, and that the end was nigh. But as time passed, even CB realized that Lindsay is simply the same ol’ cracked-out mess that she always is, no better and no worse. I agree with some of the commenters claiming that the now-official version of what went down – Lindsay was initially “unresponsive” but the paramedics didn’t take her to the hospital and she’s totally fine – is the cover story for something more crackie. But for now, Lindsay herself is pushing the “exhaustion” story. She got on Twitter (I forgot she was on Twitter) and wrote this:

[Via Lindsay’s Twitter]

CB and I were trying to figure out if the “85 hours in 4 days” figure is some crack-math by Lindsay. What does “85 hours” include? Does it include the hours of downtime waiting to go on set? Does it include all of the hours of “preparation” (coke) to get into character? Did Lindsay really mean to write “85 lines in 4 days”? Ugh, whatever.

My real theory about this incident is that Lindsay really was “passed out”. I think she had been drinking and mixing medications and she unconscious, not asleep. And I think Lindsay is like that a lot of the time – mixing prescription meds with illegal drugs and alcohol to create a cracked-out cocktail that makes her barely lucid. But my theory doesn’t have an answer for “Why didn’t the paramedics just take her to the hospital?” I don’t know.

    LOL -you got me at crack-math. I was actually also doing some calcs on paper after I read a headline ;)

  2. StopItLuke says:

    This is so sad.. she’s a crazy egotistical crackie but I still can’t help wishing the best for her in her life… not that she ever lets those wishes come to fruition.
    I would say I hope that being unconscious like that would give her a wake up call but I doubt it, pimp momma Blowhan was probably on hand with a couple of aderol and a vodka to calm poor linnocents crack frazzled nerves… SMH.

  3. jules says:

    did Elizabeth Taylor smoke? i’mma thinkin’ NO. way to live the character, Lilo

  4. brin says:

    What I think is going on: Crackie is exhausted because she is actually filming TWO Lifetime movies…”Liz and Dick” and “A Cry for Help…The Lindsay Lohan Story”. Poor Crackie.

  5. Harper says:

    She works hard for the money
    So hard for it honey
    She works hard for the money
    So you better treat her right.

  6. tripmom says:

    I don’t understand something. Lindsay isn’t making this movie by herself. If she was working 85 hours in 4 days then weren’t the director, camera people, her co-stars, ect… also working 85 hours in 4 days? Why didn’t they all pass out from exhaustion, too?

  7. YT says:

    She has the right to refuse to go to the hospital.

    85 hours in four days leaves 2.75 hours off each day. The movie crew would work more hours than LL, so by her math they worked 24 hours a day for four days and received lots of double-time pay. None of the crew nor other actors passed out from exhaustion. LL uses BS math and lies.

    • sarahtonin says:

      Considering the crew would work many hours longer than the talent setting up etc, that means they must be working well over 24 hours per day?

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Yeah, I don’t think she’s aware that there are 96 hours in four days, which only leaves the rest of the crew (who are undoubtedly working longer and harder than she) 11 hours to get their myriad of tasks complete before and after her shoots.

        Stupid Cracken; always focuses on HERSELF and covering her flat, freckled arse.

      • sarahtonin says:

        She probably was awake for 4 days, it’s just that everyone else went home to sleep each night while she stayed up with friends and went through her ‘lines.’ Several grams worth of lines, in fact.

    • Courtney says:

      You’re right. My brother is a paramedic/firefighter in California and even if someone is on their death bed they can still refuse to go to the hospital. Of course she refused to go.. She didn’t want blood work done!!

    • Incredulous says:

      The crew has to get to and from the middle of a lake both ways uphill in the snow AND pay for the privilege.

      But they are lucky…

    • erika says:

      I believe there are union laws set up by SAG (Screen Actors Guild) and Actors Equity (theatre, etc,) that prevent directors/producers etc from making people work overtime and ludacris hours.

      Yes, movie sets often work odd hours because of artistic needs and budget costs, etc., but it’s against the law to force people to work nearly 24 hrs straight, much less 21, 22.

      I did a lot of professional musical theatre in my 20s and abided by the laws of Actors Equity. They made sure we had proper lunch/dinner breaks, 20 min breaks every 5 hours, and requirements to work a certain amount of hours per day regardless of a productions needs (directors would love it if we worked day and night, to complete technical runs, etc)

      so, a 22.5 work day? No way…a 22.5 work day given proper meal breaks and significant enough breaks for sleep/rest? sure…

      depends on how SHE wanted to spend those breaks

  8. samira677 says:

    I have a hard time believing that Lifetime has 20 work days. I don’t think movies have that type of schedule.

  9. bettyrose says:

    Does everyone on set have to sign an agreement not to call her out on her bs? To the media, I mean. Obviously the crew isn’t going to risk getting in her face and being assaulted.

  10. Enn says:

    I’ve never been in a situation where the EMTs showed up at my door (thank God) but you can refuse to go, right?

    • Mia 4S says:

      I don’t know California law but as for where I live, yes you can refuse as long as you are lucid and not a danger to yourself or others. Being groggy after a crack-feast wouldn’t count. You just have to sign release. I couldn’t care less about this TV movie but the exposé that will come out afterwards will be EPIC!

  11. Jack says:

    I think the 85 hours was the time spent on set, so she is basically inclding time spent in the penthouse at the Ritz.

  12. sarahtonin says:

    I’m sure it’s a typo and she means she worked 8.5 hours in 4 days, so now she needs a cracknap.

  13. kdlaf says:

    Woah, anyone else think this headline said “passed away”? I wonder what its going to take for the people around her to face reality and stop using her like a cash cow. Obviously she’s not living in reality and hasnt for some time. And yes, she acts like an entitled little brat, but imagine the people around her? All the yesmen, enablers, her mother, etc. It makes me less angry and more sad for her. Also, on a more superficial level, her looks are long gone, Hollywood is delusional if they think people are going to pay to see her ruined face on a big screen.

  14. Kasey says:

    Here’s MY question: What is it about her life that she hates so much? Lindsay’s drugging and drinking seems like coping/escapist behavior to me, but with/from what? While I agree that girlfriend needs to start taking responsibility for her life, I can’t help but point out that she behaves as if she’s been “trained” a certain way.

    IMO the first order of business is to identify what’s making her so miserable she that the only life she is choosing to live is dangerous, self-harming, self-debasing and barely lucid all the time. That is NOT normal. She is too young to be going down this road without serious provocation.

    A friend of mine had a theory that the last movie she did before she started down this slope required her to mentally be and get into some dark stuff to take on the character and that she never recovered or came back from that (was it Georgia Rule? I stopped watching her stuff after Herbie.). I’m not sure what happened in the movie my friend is referring to but I’m assuming sexual stuff and truthfully with what’s been revealed about Dina’s character and the stories I’ve heard of young boys and girls who get taken advantage of in Hollywood I wouldn’t be surprised if that movie caused Lindsay to face some demons that she can’t shake.

    Again she needs to move past whatever it is that is fueling this decline of hers but I think she needs real help in first identifying what she’s running away from and facing it in order to grow and mature and possibly start contributing to society. I DO so hope her story doesn’t end tragically and I haven’t yet lost all hope for her but it’s contingent on her getting help to figure out what she hates about her life so much and facing it so that she can move past this (what I think is) intentional wreckless behavior.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Georgia Rule was released in 2007; she started her descent into madness (drunkenness? druginess?) a good three years prior to that. (Actually, it might be closer to nine or ten now, as she’s almost 26, right?)

      She’s been on the party circuit since she was 16 or 17, and she’s just kept on a-chugging down that track.

      I don’t think it’s “work” related; I think it’s entirely bad parenting and a miserable home-life when she was younger. And maybe the burden of being the sole wage-earner for a family of six at such a young age.

      • Jack says:

        I don’t think it was Georgia Rule. She got called out by the producer for partying way to hard, while claiming exhaustion (hmmm that sounds familiar). He claimed that she cost the production thousands of dollars.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Yes, I remember it well – I read it! :D That was officially the end of her transition from child actress to adult actress.

        Now the only other adult acting she’s doing will be in porn.

      • sarahtonin says:

        It was definitely Georgia Rule (see below). But if you recall she was out on “heat exhaustion” for Herbie as well. Nothing changes.

        Hollywood CA, 90046

        Dear Lindsay,

        Since the commencement of principal photography of Georgia Rule, you have frequently failed to arrive on time to the set. Today, you did not show for work (all day). I am now told you don’t plan to work tomorrow because you are “not feeling well.” You and your representatives have told us that your various late arrivals and absences from the set have been the result of illness; today we were told it was “heat exhaustion.” We are well aware that your ongoing all night heavy partying is the real reason for your so called “exhaustion.” We refuse to accept bogus excuses for your behavior.

        To date, your actions on Georgia Rule have been discourteous, irresponsible and unprofessional. You have acted like a spoiled child and in so doing have alienated many of your co-workers and endangered the quality of this picture. Moreover, your actions have resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage. We will not tolerate these actions any further.

        If you do not honor your production commitments, including your scheduled call time for tomorrow, and any call times thereafter, we will hold you personally accountable. This means that in addition to pursuing full monetary damages, we will take such other action as we deem necessary to preserve the integrity of the Georgia Rule Production as well as Morgan Creek’s financial interests. I urge you to take this letter seriously and conduct yourself professionally.

        Sincerely,

        James G. Robinson
        CEO, Morgan Creek Productions

      • skuddles says:

        bella, I totally remember the whole Georgia Rule fiasco… I was just so appalled to hear Lohan was pulling this crap on the set with Jane freakin’ Fonda! But you’re right, there were all sorts of rumblings and rumors about her out of hand partying well before GR. I’d say 10 years is about as long as the body can handle of non stop abuse before it starts to fall apart. I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more stories like this one down the road.

        Sarahtonin (love your nic!) thanks so much for posting that letter – I had forgotten how harsh it was. Talk about getting your ass shame-whipped and handed to you, and yet it didn’t seem to have even the tiniest effect on her. But good for them for trying to knock some sense into her…

      • Boromir's bytch says:

        Her current behavior is consistent with her behavior way way back when she was filming Herbie Reloaded. She was hospitalized for “exhaustion” during filming, she had a meltdown at the L.A. premiere when they didn’t include her song where she thought it belonged, the movie producers called her out for her selfish behavior and possible drug use, etc. She traveled to London only to no-show at the actual premiere and left her very ticked-off co-star Michael Keaton to explain her absence.

        This was quite a while before her troubles with Georgia Rules.

      • sarahtonin says:

        @skuddles, thanks :) I had the same reaction too when I re-read it. Anyone else would be mortified with embarrassment and would never do it again. Well anyone else would’ve appreciated the opportunity to work with Jane Fonda and wouldn’t do it in the first place.

    • bettyrose says:

      I’ve always thought that child stars start experimenting with “party” drugs because they can and they’re not necessarily discouraged from doing so (most of us at that age had no choice but to live by our parents’ rules, so some bad behavior was generally curbed early). Over time, recreational use becomes an addiction, which these kids have the income to support until it reaches the point of no return.

      Certainly, a dysfunctional family is also a contributing factor, but I don’t think the drug use necessarily starts with unhappiness.

      • Lindsay says:

        I’d imagine that is some of it. Genetics plays a part in addiction and she never really learned coping skills out of the public eye and for minor setbacks. Every failure she has had has been huge and public, which would be difficult for anyone but even harder if it is one of the first times you have been told the equivalent of no.

      • Samigirl says:

        Unfortunately the genetics thing really doesn’t sit well with me. My whole biological family has SOME sort of addiction- love, sex, drugs, alcohol. My brother and I don’t smoke, drink, do any type of drugs. I just feel like using genetics as kind of a blame for addiction problems is bs.

    • Djinn says:

      Despite the common myths the main reason people take drugs is because they’re fun. If you can’t afford your habit it becomes unfun pretty quickly or if it lands you in prison but the rich often never reach this point because they can afford their blow and to pay for an army of lawyers.

      I suspect that for Lindsay then fun still outweighs the bad.

  15. mia girl says:

    I’ve heard that one of the side-effects of “exhaustion” is you become really bad at simple math.

  16. bluhare says:

    She worked 85 lines? No wonder she passed out!!

  17. JB says:

    Yeah, 85 hours in 4 days is impossible. What an idiot.

  18. Boo says:

    There was allegedly a doctor sent by producers, too…in one of the 16 versions of the story.

    My theory is that they went to the hotel (that they paid for to keep her close so she didn’t have to drive anywhere) to roust her ass up for work, but they couldn’t wake her up. The producers sent a doctor who ordered them to call paramedics. (How many ambulances were dispatched for there to be SEVEN medics?). Doc got there before medics did, and they arrived and were able to wake her up enough to say no to the hospital. She does NOT want her blood tested under any circumstances. The doctor probably backed her up b/c he works for Lifetime and wants to avoid more scandal.

    • OhMyMy says:

      Sigh. When are the producers going to wake up and smell the crack and realize they need to have a 24/7 babysitter with her every minute? Someone like the girls coach in Porky’s maybe?

      Shrug…I dunno maybe she’s laying the groundwork to throw Lifetime and the producers under the bus when this crackmess turns out to be a major failure claiming they overworked her so she didn’t give her best performance. Who knows?

    • erika says:

      Question for everybody to answer:

      1.) Has there EVER been a time in your life where another paramedic, much less, another human being been UNABLE to wake you up?

      simple question…again, has there ever been a time in your life where more than ONE person was needed to wake you up from sleeping???

      • Izzy says:

        There was this one time… oh, wait, I had already been hospitalized because I was very sick. It’s never happened to me in a hotel room… or anywhere else without an actual medical reason. I’m guessing the speculation is correct, and she was cracked out.

  19. gloaming says:

    She’s never ‘worked’ a day in her miserable life.

    • OrangeBlohan says:

      Amen! She’d really be exhausted if she had to work at jobs that she’s actually qualified for, ie McDonald’s or digging ditches. I’m tired of this narcissistic waste of space. Why Lifetime would waste good money on hiring her is just beyond me, except they know this piece of junk is going to draw viewers, but not in a good way.

  20. Jenny says:

    There are only 96 hours total in four days, so what the hell kind of people are running this movie if she needs to work for 85 of those hours? If she had said 85 hours in a 7 day week, not a five day work week, it MIGHT, (and that is a mighty thin might) fly, but nope on this story. The production people need to correct this and fast or they look like total idiots.

    And yes, if you sign a release, the EMTs can treat and leave without taking you to the hospital.

  21. Stephanie says:

    I’m afraid we are on the countdown with this one.

  22. msimmonsva22 says:

    I think this is going to be a baaad movie, ready for someone else to do a Liz Taylor movie and give it the grace and class it deserves.

  23. lucy2 says:

    Ah, crack math. Hope someone else negotiates her “deals” with all those weird guys she’s been reportedly hanging around.

  24. Amelia says:

    I’m really struggling to decide whether or not I should feel sorry for this girl.
    On the one hand, I’ve never had first hand experience with addiction, but I know it’s not something you can just turn off, and she has the worst possible parents anyone could think of in this situation.
    She’s basically the family’s meal ticket, and during a time where she should be getting her shit in order she’s being encouraged to keep taking any and all work being offered to her.
    But she’s been given x amount of chances and she has squandered each and every one of them. The fu fingernail thing was what did it for me. Also (from reading the comments on here) she hit a baby stroller?! If that mother was me that bitch would have to be tube-fed for the rest of her goddamn life!

  25. dallasite40 says:

    When she “passes herself away” soon, there’ll be no one to blame but Sean Holley and Honing for covering up her mess. And the Judges for not letting her take her punishments in jail so that she would, at the very least, be protected from her life enablers. The fact that she has cost taxpayers in CA so much money yet that can’t pay for rehab or jail is beyond comprehension.

    Here in Texas, she would not have had the chance to continue to fuck up. Second violation and it’s jail time.

    Just my opinion. Nothing else.

    • Ducky La Rue says:

      @dallasite40, I hear what you’re saying, but I personally wouldn’t blame Sean Holley or Steve Honig – she makes those two work really hard for their money (although I can never figure out how she can afford to pay them). No one’s responsible for Lindsay’s life but Lindsay. Yeah, she’s got crappy parents, but so do a lot of people. You want to turn your life around, you turn your life around. She just doesn’t want to, that’s all.

      As for your comment about Texas (and her incarceration chances there), I think it’s brilliant! Any chance of landing her a guest spot on Dallas? ;-)

    • Michelle says:

      No kidding about the Texas thing. And depending on what city you are in, that would be a first violation and you go to jail. (Speaking as someone who has lived in Dallas, some suburbs, and some real podunk towns in the middle of nowhere. Oh, and someone who has had a lot of friends and family go to jail or prison in Texas.)

    • erika says:

      Literally every single human being involved in her life has ENABLED her!

      All the way from her parents, to friends, to entertainment industry folks to probation officers to JUDGES!

      It’s just not her lecherious parents or friends, official JUDGES of the court have enabled her!

      Judge Saunders…I know California has a jail shortage problem, but how about for ONCE you keep Lilo in the slammer for the judged time and send home misdemeanor thefts? some white collar criminals, some parking ticket fiasco’s?
      That would free up some jail space for Lilo.

      Ask yourselves, who would you rather have out there on the streets? A dude who broke into a mini mart and stole a few bottles of liquor of Lindsay Lohan, free, wild, running, boozing, drugging and access to a key and 4 deadly wheels???

  26. Mouse says:

    Would someone please explain the definition of moderation to this person and tell her to give it a good old college try?

  27. the original bellaluna says:

    IF she was in fact high for four days (or longer) due to filming, it’s called “hibernating” in druggie terms. It’s the “crash” following the bender.

    • sarahtonin says:

      That’s the way I read it. She spent 4 days up, without sleep, and thinking she was working really hard showing up to work, even though she was probably skatty and a mess and needed a cup full of concealer to hide the black eye circles. I bet she thought that she was being totally professional and responsible by showing up to set each day instead of crashing out. (No doubt she was pissed that no one congratulated her for that). Of course she had to take even more drugs to stay awake, LOTS of drugs after a couple of days. Eventually, she crashes, out cold, (by exhausting her pink bag of tricks or by taking a bottle of oxys), and probably would’ve stayed like that well into saturday except bitch has a job to go to.

      Btw, she probably was at least unconscious. I work in emerg services and although I don’t know the Californian response grid, I’d imagine that considering a truck has 2 officers, dispatching 7 paramedics means that when staff rang 911 they thought she wasn’t breathing. Bet it was coded as a cardiac arrest, the highest response. Here in Australia you’d get 4 paramedics for that, plus 3 fire officers in the city to help with resus until said paramedics arrived. No one sends 7 officers for a patient who only needs 2, one to drive the truck, the other to tend to the patient, unless they are critically ill. So unless they all self-responded to see a celeb (unlikely in L.A.), then they thought she was dead. Most often when we have cardiac or respiratory arrests that result in a patient refusing transport, it’s from an opiate overdose. They get given Narcan to reverse the effects of the heroin/morphine etc, wake up and don’t want to go to hospital. (Usually because now they are withdrawing, going cold turkey, and need to go get another fix). So read into that however you like.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Our paramedics (in my limited experience with them) ride in threes. If the Fire Department and paramedics are incorporated (together), then I’m pretty sure they roll out a fire rig as well as the paramedics (ax-down the door for the paramedics; offer support; etc…) at the same time, due to not knowing the exact nature of what they’re walking in on.

        Rolling out that kind of man-power means the city/county either has the money to burn (they don’t) or they were expecting to call the coroner.

      • sarahtonin says:

        Ok, then for most cases 3 officers would be plenty to adequately care for a patient, I’d think. 7 is excessive. I would assume that no city would intentionally waste resources so they must’ve thought they needed all that man power.

        It is possible, I guess, that if she was locked in her room they asked for the fire brigade to come to smash the door in to access her. That would explain the extra 4. Although considering she is staying in a hotel, phoning the front desk for the key might be a bit simpler.

        Still could’ve been an opiate overdose though. Maybe I’ll start calling her Smacken anyway.

  28. kells-bells says:

    Way to stay classy, Cracken.

  29. tru tru says:

    her shit never adds up, LOL

  30. Zelda says:

    I think we can all agree that making fun of her being an entitled asshole is fair.
    But can we stop making fun of her likely addictions? That shit’s just never funny.

  31. original lucy says:

    there is a story online that LiLo was seen coming out of the scientology center!

  32. pink giraffe says:

    It bothers me so much that she looks nothing like Elizabeth Taylor.

  33. Prim says:

    She sees her life as grandly tragic as Marilyn Monroe’s. She wants to live it out that way.

  34. e.non says:

    if she’s thinking this teevee movie is going to propel her to major motion picture status, she’s insane. as difficult as it is to get funding, her name associated with any movie is going to frighten money people away.

  35. really says:

    Deadline is reporting that 2 hairdressers on the crew “passed out from exhaustion and dehydration” from the multiple 18 hours days.

    Either they are lying to cover for Lohan (probable), or it’s true and the unions should shut down this crapfest.

    Also, what’s with the dehydration? Are there no liquids on set?

  36. Sarah says:

    Part of me wonders if she really wants to be part of the “27 Club” thinking that people will idolize her after her hypothetical death that “no one saw coming” and that she doesn’t realize the finality of what it all means if she OD’s etc.

    • janie says:

      Yeah, that’s what I’m thinking. She’s crafting what she thinks is a tragic downward spiral and doesn’t realize we’re all just waiting for her to die so we can stop hearing about her bullshit.

      I had a friend like that completely idolized Sylvia Plath and exaggerated her hopelessness, making clear her death wish until we all stopped trying to help her and gave up. Then she suddenly got better when she stopped getting attention.

      For a narcissist, dying isn’t fun without an audience.

  37. Michelle says:

    Ahahaha okay… I went and followed LiLo on Twitter, and then Twitter suggested that I might also want to follow a clinical psychologist. Brilliant!

  38. Molly says:

    Lindsay started going downhill after “Mean Girls.” Once that movie hit theaters and Lindsay was named the hot, new Hollywood IT girl, she (and her stupid a$$ mother) started partying like rock stars at the clubs and hanging around with Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, etc. That’s when her problems started. She was already causing problems on the set of Herbie, holding up filming because she was hospitalized for dehydration, exhaustion, bronchitis, and asthma.

    I don’t think Lindsay Lohan is using drugs to escape from reality/her problems. I think that she started using drugs recreationally while hanging out in the clubs with her friends and because her parents are such morons (who never actually disciplined her) her drug use got out of control. I don’t think Lindsay thinks her drug use/behavior is the problem. In her eyes, her only problem is everybody is jealous of her and are out to get her.

    Oops, posted in the wrong spot. This is a reply to Kasey’s post.

  39. Sisi says:

    This chick really doesn’t have a natural cycle of asleep and awake anymore, does she. It’s completely destroyed. I think it’s all regulated by drugs now, and obviously badly regulated.

  40. Lisa says:

    The unfortunate thing about this is that nobody wants to fire her. Who would want to be deemed responsible for setting her off if she OD’ed?

    Rational people would know that it was a long time coming, but the media would demonize the director. Then there would be months of conspiracy theories: “Was there a curse on set?” “Is Liz’s ghost getting her revenge?” This whole thing is a mess, whether she’s dead or alive.

    Truth Time I haven’t read a single word of this article or the responses yet, but I just read that Rodney King is dead. Wow. He was 47 and found at the bottom of a swimming pool. I heard a interview with him less than a month ago on CBC Radio and it was really interesting, lots of talk about his various experiences with the carceral system before and after THAT night, the acquittal (still remember my family’s reaction to that, which was pretty much ‘I KNEW it/come on/where’s the asprin?’ Lather, rinse, repeat, sulk) the shocking, but not at all surprising riots that followed, the Reginald Denny attack and the almost unrestrained glee that it produced in racists who just needed an excuse, then got one, and then decided to adopt him as some kind of patron saint of their ‘Ya see?’ cause.

    I wonder how King died.

    I also remember wanting to spit nails when your friendly neighbourhood news outlets drew parallel between L.A. and the Katrina aftermath (why won’t they just sit there and die or be murdered like a good little subsection of the human race)? So that friction abides…

    Now, I just roll my eyes when someone brings up the ‘post-racial’ fallacy. Who even thought that up, the fecund minds that brought us the Unicorn Rump Parliament?

    Anyway, time to reflect, huh?

    This will be an excellent excuse for why she did a shit job acting in this mess….I was worked too hard, couldn’t keep my eyes open to read the script…woo is me !

  43. skeptical says:

    Blohan thinks everything she does should be considered “working”. Her wanting to go to Cannes is for “work”. Remember when she said that rehab is like a vacation?
    Reality. Blohan’s is not like our’s.

  44. carly says:

    I want to pull for her but she makes it so hard, she is filming a lifetime movie, not a real Hollywood movie, how come someone like Kristen Stewart or Emma Stone, work for hours, sometimes have to do interviews all day, and then get on planes to do more work, and they never have these types of stories, I mean Kristen was doing 16-17 hrs a day six days a week for Breaking dawn, terrible climate, traveling back and forth, and not one story like this has come out.

    get your shi&* together girl

    • KardASSian Butt says:

      And Kristen has been at this since she was a kid – like LiLo but she seems pretty normal – perhaps a bit stuck up but I think in her case that IS normal. She made it through the child to adult barrier.

    • Boo says:

      I’m not a huge fan of Kristen’s, but I saw some kind of “Making Of” thing about the first Twilight movie, and it showed them doing these scenes where they had to wear all these wetsuits under their clothes to stay warm, filming in these horrific, freezing cold and wet conditions on that remote beach in N. Washington state…and no news ever came from that set about anyone needing any emergency medical care for exhaustion, dehydration, frostbite…nothing. The Liz and Dick set looks pretty tame to me…yachts and hotels, right there with lots of water and places to sit down and rest or nap.

  45. KardASSian Butt says:

    Before Team LiLo and TMZ pulled the plug Zap2it reported that someone confiscated LiLo’s vodka filled water bottle and KABC reported she was taken to the hospital.

    Suddenly, TMZ posted their insider version and it was all gone.

    I believe KABC.

  46. erika says:

    I flipped through the channels last night and Lilo’s Saturday Night Live episode was on…

    I was thinking, 3 strikes you’re out.

    She BOMBED on…

    1.) Her Glee spot
    2.) Her Saturday Night Live hosting gig
    3.) apparently this Lifetime Network movie

    and let’s not forget she couldn’t even catch a flight to get out to DC for the Whitehouse Correspondents Dinner.

    Who in their RIGHT mind would EVER offer her another job??? WHO? (and if someone does they’ll surely be labed an idiot in Hollywood entertainment leaders)

    I’d say her only way to bring in income would be to do straight, old fashioned porn. seriously…

  47. Courtney says:

    it’s possible to work 85 hours in 4days it’s an average of 21 1/4 hours and anybody thats ever done a movie will tell you it’s not easy. Adults don’t have time limits on how much they can work per day only children do. those of you wishing death on Lindsey Lohan are out of line she maybe an addict but that was pre destined by family history and being forced into the industry at a young age

    • Soxfan says:

      I agree-wishing death on someone is not cool. I think people’s frustration with LL is that she has never taken ANY responsibility for anything. She lies, denies and deflects, along with her minions, who just happen to be her biggest enablers as well. There have been numerous people over the years who have offered her help, she has had numerous opportunities for work, though my guess is that after this past year, those will soon be gone except for really bad porn and, quite simply, she is an ungrateful and narcissistic wench. When she takes responsibility and admits that she has royally f’ed up for the past 10 years, then, it might be time for some compassion. Until then, STFD and STFU, LL.

  48. LucyOriginal says:

    I always avoid her threads, but seriously…this is getting beyond sad. I wish she could recover, but I am afraid she will never recover because she doesn’t take responsibility for anything at all.

    The worse thing is if regular people like us had behaved like her, we would never ever had the number of chances she’s been given.

    She should stay out of spotlight, go back to school and start another career (if she is lucky enough to be alive and given an opportunity int he real world).

  49. carly says:

    Im not wishing her to die, I just wish she would take responsability for her actions and change her life, she needs a better team around her, people that care about her as a person and not just a comodity.

    The long hours are not an excuse, there are tons of actresses around her age that work hard hours, have tons of pressure on their shoulders, but they’re responsable and professionals and do their jobs without a problem, this girl keeps wasting her life and opportunities given to her, is sad to see

  50. Kate says:

    I think at this point she is just a walking, talking id. There’s no self-awareness to be had, no thoughts about long-term consequences.

    And I don’t buy the two crew members coming down with exhaustion unless they were partying with LL.

  51. Lurkeelee says:

    I fear Lindsay will be the next Amy Winehouse or Whitney Houston and I really hope not. I hope she eventually gets the help she needs. As for this film, I am actually looking forward to it. I like the pics of her as Liz and Linds is not a bad actress either.

  52. logan says:

    Lindsay Lowhan just needs to shut her pie hole. She is the equivalent to Charmin, an a** wipe. She has been given more than her share of chances and help. Her excuses and lies get more and more…..stupid. Has Lifetime come forward and said that she worked 85 hours in 4 days? That is almost 22 hours a day. Come on Ms. Lowhan, try and spin it a different way tomorrow please. We just are not buying that one.

  53. Lucky Charm says:

    Maybe she was trying to add 8+5 hours in 4 days. Or she meant 8.5 hours in 4 days? And I wonder just what chemicals those hairdressers were being exposed to that they were allegedly suffering side effects from, lol!

  54. Thea says:

    I worked in addiction and recovery for several years, and when doing groups with patients alot would say they were bored, so they drank, did drugs, etc. Many were drowning things from their past, sexual and physical abuse, crappy parents, some even had total familes that were enablers. Many different reasons for the addiction, but where there is one addiction, there will be another. Alot of patients had dual diagnoses, i.e. Bipolar, depression. I think in Lindsay’s case, too much too soon, she never had a childhood, pressures as a wage earner for a crappy family and deep down she knows her career is done. She is just not willing to face it, hence the need to hide it in drugs. It is sad, but she is only one to change and unfortunately it will take her death I am afraid.

  55. skuddles says:

    Off topic… can anyone tell me how to get a cool little avatar image like some of you have next to your names?

  56. B says:

    Why is everyone even trying to rationalize/calculate the “crack math?” It’s a non-issue & blatantly obvious issue. She’s f-d up. Sad but true, nothing to spend energy on trying to figure out or prove her wrong. ‘Tis what it ’tis.
