Lindsay Lohan was briefly hospitalized in NYC, her rep says it was “asthma”

Gee, I wonder how she got an “infection”?

Lindsay Lohan had a brush with death!!! Except not really. Except not at all. TMZ claimed yesterday that Lindsay was “rushed to the emergency room” in New York on Sunday night. Why was that? Because the Emmys were going on and Lindsay thought she could pull focus? Well, the first excuse given to TMZ was that LL was suffering from a “bad lung infection” (as opposed to a “good lung infection”?) after dealing with “walking pneumonia” at the exact same time she was scheduled to work on Scary Movie 5 with Charlie Sheen. TMZ claimed that LL was taken to Mt. Sinai, where she was given antibiotics for the infection and then discharged.

Except Lindsay’s “rep” (STEVE HONIG?!) told People Mag and Us Weekly that the Cracken went to the hospital because of her asthma, and that she was “treated and released, and is doing fine.” Why are there two different crackie versions about Lindsay’s hospitalization? Is this like LL’s “illness” while she was working on Liz & Dick a few months ago, where the film’s producers sent doctors to her Marmont hotel room to check on her after she called in “sick”?

And here’s what Lindsay was up to over the weekend, just one day before her emergency hospitalization:

Lindsay Lohan partied in the rain in Central Park Saturday to catch DJ Steve Angello at Size Matters. The actress told us that even though she was recovering from pneumonia, she didn’t want to miss the al fresco event.

Lohan said, “I have been really sick with pneumonia but I have been working. I have been shooting ‘Scary Movie’ with Charlie Sheen. He was really great to work with and gave me some good advice about surviving in this business.”

Lohan, with a group of female friends, partied at the open-air bash in the Satsky & Gefter VIP room along with New York Ranger Aaron Voros, his former teammate Sean Avery and Pacha New York’s Eddie Dean. Lohan and her group fled as a storm blew in and the skies opened at about 10 p.m., but sources tell us she didn’t make it out in time and got soaked while many others stayed behind to happily dance in the downpour.

But on Sunday night, Lohan was rushed to the hospital still suffering from a bad lung infection.

She was taken to Mount Sinai, where she was treated with antibiotics and discharged. She told us last night, “I got sick again, but I am all right.”

I kind of think the first crackie story was better – once, in college, I had a flu that morphed into a really serious throat and lung infection, and it took me weeks of antibiotics to get over it. If LL had stuck with that story, she could have avoided work altogether! But she would have also had to avoid partying, and LL has been enjoying the party scene in NYC too much to let that happen. Thus, it was her asthma!

    Can I just tell you how much I love the fact that LL is taking advice from Charlie Sheen?

  2. Amelia says:

    I feel sorry for the cleaners who will have to de-Cracken everything she touched in that hospital.
    Time to crack out the industrial strength disinfectant, followed by extra-strength Cracken repellent (available at all good chains of cray-cray drugstores. Today only, get a free de-worming kit for your pet dragon when you buy a traffic cone size Cracktini).
    Oh God. This is what antibiotics do to me, people. I’m spreading the crazy today.

  3. daisydoodle says:

    here’s a thought, if you’re asthmatic, don’t smoke, unless you want to walk around with an oxygen canister at 60…doesn’t matter, live for today, Lindsay!

  4. andy says:

    Someone is trying to beat Keith Richards record.

  5. Charlotte says:

    poor Lindsay. That girl really works too hard. She’s a beautiful princess.

  6. dcypher1 says:

    Maybe if she didnt smoke so much crack she wouldnt get sick all the time. But we all know crack is her first priority.

  7. The Original Mia says:

    She’s been popping in & out of Atlanta. There was talk she was here on Saturday filming with Charlie. Now there’s a casting call for orchestra members. Weird.

    As far as the lung infection, my mind went to a gross place. Thanks, Kaiser. And before breakfast too! Until she puts down the cigs, she’s going to be suspectible to respiratory issues. Dummy!

  8. SleepyJane says:

    The use of “LL” should be strictly reserved for LL Cool J (sorry, my age is showing…let me tuck it back in real quick).

    She probably just needed an emergency painkiller fix.

  9. yellowshaba says:

    I totally believe lindsay went to the hospital because of her asthma….said no one ever

    • The Original Tiffany says:

      lifelong asthmatic here, with the drugs they have now there is no need to ever go to the hospital. I used to go quite a bit, 16 years and more ago. I haven’t wheezed in that long because of the new meds like advair, so I am calling BS.

      Also, when you have a “lung infection” you don’t feel like partying in the rain.

      I smell the BS from here in DC.

      • Charlotte says:

        Having been in a seriously messed up, highly abusive relationship, I feel somewhat qualified to make the statement that reading the excuses from these people is like being in an abusive relationship. They feed us the most insulting, unbelievable twaddle and expect it to be lapped up, no questions asked. It makes me feel actually physically ill to think of the lifestyles these people lead, with no (or almost no) accountability for their actions, whilst other people work hard to scrape by. EURGH.

      • Izzy says:

        Here Tiff, have a cracktini. It’ll mask the BS smell.

        “Deja Moo: The feeling you’ve heard this bull before.”

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        MMM, Cracktinis in the afternoon. Just what I needed today!

        They added another season of weeds to netflix so I went to bed late. If it were not for the sea jasper cracktini, I might have had to be hospitalized for “exhaustion”.

        Ahhh, the life of delusion. I seriously hope she vacates NYC before I move there in March.

      • Hakura says:

        I can smell the BS, & I’m here in Baltimore.

        Lifelong asthmatic here too, & I agree with you. It’s complete BS. These days, even pharmacies will give you an emergency inhalter when you have an attack. Which is not only more convenient & faster, but doesn’t require another punch on her ‘pain in the ERs’ ass’ membership card.

    • daisydoodle says:

      hey guys, I’m right in the middle (btwn balto and dc) but what I’m worried about is I was down in atla this weekend, do you think I need a full body scan just in case I caught something?

  10. lin234 says:

    I’m more fascinated with her chin. In the movie still- chin is gone. Days or weeks later in orange dress- chin is back on. Then the chin is gone at Lady Gaga’s perfume launch.

    What the heck is she taking?

  11. Beatrice Sparkplug says:

    It’s confirmed: she’s a cockroach.

    • The Original Tiffany says:

      Shhh, she’s a CRACKROACH.

      I’m still perfecting my spaceship plans with the crack, booze and joorie. This has to be perfect the first time-I want her launched far enough out to not fall back from orbit.
      I’m never mixing radish juice and carrot juice ever again.
      I’m working on the P32 space modulator…

      Who knew looney tunes would be our answer?
      Original reference and classic tune of all time?

  12. says:

    ALL VICIOUS LIES!!! Crackie isn’t partying in NYC, she’s such a homebody!

    In that last picture her face almost looks normal.

  13. DEB says:

    Those cheek implants frighten me. And if her asthma is that bad, why the hell does she smoke enough to give herself yellow teeth and to necessitate plastic surgery at age 25? Scary.

  14. Chicagogurl17 says:

    I just want to strip her of the spray tan and bad extensions, get her a bra and scrub her face clean. ick.

  15. G says:

    Charlie Sheen is the next rung on the evolutionary scale for Lohan?

  16. lower-case deb says:

    neither asthma nor lung infection, methinks.

    just her double chin pressing on her windpipe, making it difficult for air to enter her lungs.

    but then again, double chin will have to droop some more with that failed attempt. LL bounces back.

    this girl is a highlander. take note amanda bynes. there. can. only. be. one.

  17. oxa says:

    TMZ has a piece up that says it was the stress of being arrested that caused the chest pain.
    So which one is it, Asthma, Walking Pneumonia,Stress of being arrested at 2am, exhaustion or needed an excuse for being late to set?

  18. snappyfish says:

    i don’t know what’s scarier: her coke-bloated face or her barbie extensions.

  19. lori says:

    Don’t they have a disclaimer on the crack pipe. May aggreviate asthma? The FDA needs to look into this!

  20. Lacie says:

    Maybe when ol’ Steve called the mags (from speed dial), he just pronounced “alcohol and oral sex overdosing” wrong?

    She’s suffering from alcohol and oral sex overdoses, and recovering in the hospital.

  21. Ruby Red Lips says:

    Too much crack, cigs and alcohol…. def not asthma *cough cough*!!

    Linnocent is def heading toward her final resting place at a rate of knotts – her body obviously can’t sustain her lifestyle.

    Even though she is a despicable human being I really wish she’d wake up to this fact

  22. jwoolman says:

    That’s quite an odd case of asthma. Seems to pop up on demand when she needs some distraction from other troubles, and the list of meds allowed when she was being randomly tested for probation didn’t include any asthma control drugs or rescue inhaler meds… She used asthma as an excuse way back on Georgia Rule, didn’t she? They didn’t buy it then.

  23. MiMi says:

    Yes, asthma. Cuz asthmatics always smoke packs of cigs a day. In Crackie vernacular they’re inhalers. Same as a crack pipe. Tru fax.

  24. skuddles says:

    Oh, does she have a job coming up that she wants to dodge? Or did she just run out of narcotics? Sure they hospital px’d more than just antibiotics for poor, ailing Lilo.

  25. d says:

    Doctor shopping. It all sounds like the lies of an addict trying to cover up their addiction. That’s her pattern. She’s like a cockroach, just keeps on living the way she does, shrivelling up a little more each day, until her body gives out one day. I suppose Sheen makes it look like you can live a long life of debauchery, and no doubt he’s got the scoop on how to control an addiction to manageable levels (because that’s how he rolls & I seriously doubt he’s sober/clean), but cockroach longevity aside, my bet is Lindsey’s body will give out sometime before 40.

    • fabgrrl says:

      Well, I think Charlie Sheen started down the crack road later in life than Lindsay did. Charlie Sheen has loving, supportive, smart parents who kept him *somewhat* in line through his early adulthood. Lindsay Lohan has been a mess since her teens.

  26. Ludakristen says:

    Of course she’s hanging out with Sean Avery. OF COURSE.

  27. Byte Me says:

    Go on Lindsay, keep on making those smart life choices. I’ve got you in the deathpool for Feb. 2013.

  28. the original bellaluna says:

    I’ve HAD pneumonia. You don’t fly, film movies, or party (especially in the f*cking rain) when you have pneumonia.

    You lie there, trying not to vomit from the obnoxious doses of antibiotics they gave you, praying that you don’t cough up a lung and wondering why they don’t make a stronger codeine cough syrup.

    Or hoping someone just shoots you and puts you out of your misery.

    And (since my lungs were compromised due to the pneumonia) I ALSO have asthma. And every cold I get becomes bronchitis, or worse.

    She’s just got a wicked case of Full-of-Shit-itis.

    • The Original Tiffany says:

      Thank you! Been lucky enough to have it twice because of my real asthma plus some awesome bronchitis over the years. Partying in the rain? No, more like coughing up clots of lung all night.

      Another day, another bout of trouble, another string of delusion. She should really sell shots of it.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        OTiff – Yeah, I got it right in time for my 16th birthday, because I’d had mono for like five months and my body & immune system were so run-down. Mom was having me tested for drugs and every other thing in the known world, while I was begging to be left alone to die.

        LiBlow could sell shots of delusion, but I bet she’d do ‘em all herself and whoopsies! there goes her profit margin! :D

  29. taxi says:

    Maybe she invents excuses for ER visits so she can steal drugs there?

  30. Bess says:

    I wonder if White Oprah is taking care of her at home in Long Island with some good Lohan comfort food- Xanax soup and delusional dessert.

  31. Onyx XV says:

    Yeah, I’m with the other posters who also have asthma – there is no need to go to the ER for that anymore. Unless of course, you have an especially severe case of it – which I highly doubt she has, since she is able to smoke. What a dumb young b*tch – all the way around!

  32. Bengalcat2000 says:

    She is beyond ridiculous. I’ve had walking pneumonia, no health insurance & only so many paid sick days. Cracken has been arrested 6 or 7 times, is late for/misses work on a regular basis, yet continues to get hired & has prob made more money this year than I’ll see in 10 years. And she gets a PRIVATE PLANE to the set after claiming to be sick! Whatever empathy I had for her is gone. And all of her enablers need to be in jail.

  33. erika says:

    poor thang!

    my goodness, that walking pheuomania just haunted her during her ‘work’ on Scary Movie. why….she was so sick she could hardly get herself outta bed!! : (

    and she got better! : ) and she went Driving! Crashing! Leaving the scene! drinking! Clubbing!!!

    and then BOOM!…that damn pheoumania hits her again.

    God Bless Linds Darling

  34. dcypher1 says:

    Oh I just remembered antibiotics dont work if u drink alcohol or do drugs and smoke crack.
