Lindsay Lohan already trying to crack-hustle her way out of Betty Ford, of course

Good lord, it’s going to be a LONG three months of crack shenanigans. Lindsay Lohan is firmly ensconced in the bosom of Betty Ford right now, although that doesn’t mean as much as you’d think. Her last trip to Betty Ford ended in bar-hopping, curfew-breaking and employee-assaulting, so I don’t have high (“high”) hopes for Lindsay’s current rehab stay. And it sounds like Lindsay doesn’t care about it either, judging from her interview with Piers Morgan. So is it any wonder that the Cracken is already trying to crack-hustle her way out?

Lindsay Lohan had an incident free weekend at the Betty Ford Center, but as has exclusively learned, she is already telling people that she wants to leave the treatment facility. The 26-year-old checked into the Palm Desert, Calif. center late on Thursday, May 2, just hours before the Los Angeles City Attorney planned to go to court to get a warrant for her arrest after a wild day of switching treatment centers.

This is Lohan’s second stay there — her sixth in rehab overall — but apparently she isn’t very happy with her situation.

“Lindsay is already begging to switch out of Betty Ford,” a source close to the troubled actress tells “She has been complaining to everyone that will listen that she doesn’t want to be there and that it isn’t the best place for her.”

LiLo was originally slated to attend Seafield in New York, and then pulled a switcheroo and spent only two minutes in the Morningside Recovery center in Newport Beach before firing her lawyer Mark Heller and re-hiring Shawn Holley , who brokered the deal for her to go the Betty Ford.

However, the center where she had a fight with staffer Dawn Holland in 2010 is not where Lindsay wants to spend the next 87 of her 90-day sentence.

“Lindsay says she wants to go to either a treatment center in Hawaii, Crossroad Centre in Antigua, or even Lukens Institute in Florida.”

According to the source, Lindsay has already asked her attorney to clear the rehab switch with the City Attorney.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. Would they honestly allow her to go to rehab in Hawaii?!!? How is that for “punishment”? Sometimes I wish I was a white crackhead with big boobs just so I could go to Hawaii for a rehab-vacation for three months. God, that would be amazing. Anyway, as for Lindsay’s poor lawyer Shawn Holley, who just got rehired last week, TMZ says Shawn only agreed to come back after Lindsay agreed to actually PAY Shawn all of the money LL owes Shawn from years of legal work:

Shawn Holley is no chump … she agreed to represent Lindsay Lohan again with one big string attached … that she gets the $150,000 that Lindsay owes her for prior work … TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with Lindsay’s team tell TMZ … when Lindsay was on the verge of being on the receiving end of an arrest warrant last week, they called Shawn and pleaded for help. We’re told Lindsay herself made multiple calls begging Shawn to come back.

Our sources say Shawn made it clear … business is business. She said she would rep Lindsay again ONLY with assurance the debt would be wiped clean, and quickly. Shawn demanded a specific payment schedule, earmarking money that Lindsay was slated to get.

What’s more … sources say Shawn got documentation earmarking certain paychecks Lindsay will be getting — paychecks that will now go to Shawn. In other words, Lindsay will never have access to that money so she can stiff her again. And sources say Shawn — whom Lindsay fired just a few months ago — nailed down how she would be paid for future services.

We’re told Lindsay happily agreed to Shawn’s financial demands … frankly she had no other choice. Let’s face it … Lindsay has an M.O.. The question — has Shawn outsmarted her this time? Holley could not be reached for comment.

[From TMZ]

Good for Shawn, I guess. I don’t know why Shawn has such a soft spot for LL, but I suspect LL thinks of Shawn as some kind of mother-substitute. Considering LL was raised by vagina-kicking, cracked-out wolves, it’s not surprising. Speaking of Mother Crackie, Dina gave an interview to E! News about Lindsay’s situation last week – you can read the full thing here. It’s full of delusion and crack lies like Dina claiming Lindsay “actually wanted to go” to rehab because “She is happy there, to get introspective and get back on the right track.” Dina also claims that Lindsay “has a different frame of mind this time. She realizes and she knows she needs help this time. She was like, ‘I’m sorry, Mommy.’ And I tell her, ‘Don’t say you are sorry. You just have to work on yourself and on getting well. Don’t beat yourself up.’” Of course. Why would Dina ever encourage Lindsay to take responsibility for anything?

    This bitch is crazy, for real!!

    I’m to the point that, clearly she will keep using and abusing. She doesn’t want to get clean, so she can self destruct all she wants. Just keep her out of the general public so she can’t hurt some innocent person.

  2. lucy2 says:

    Shawn’s actually pretty smart – guarantee a payment, and she knows Lindsay will continue to need her because she can’t stay out of trouble. Job security – at least until Lohan drops dead.

    If she wants to leave rehab, throw her in jail.

  3. Jennykins says:

    This girl never had a chance with the parents she does. Ffs who’s mom makes them sleep in their own vomit to teach them a lesson.

    • MrsB says:

      Yeah I doubt that ever happened. What she actually meant to say was that her and her mother both passed out in their own vomit.

    • emmie_a says:

      I know a lot of people who had horrible parents and tragic childhood experiences and turned out just fine. Lindsay had a chance. And people continually give her chances. She’s the one who is keeps f***ing up her life.

      • elceibeno08 says:

        Exactly. We are responsible for our own lives when we reach a certain age.

      • MrsB says:

        Another point to this is that crackie has 3 other siblings. None of whom have been arrested(I believe). At least from what I know they seem to lead fairly normal lives. Yes, her parents have been terrible examples, but I think it’s just an excuse she likes to use.

      • Samigirl says:

        My bio mom did meth when she was pregnant with me. She was a prostitute who made plans to prostitute myself AND my brother out when we became of age. We would go on her “dates” with her and were left to fend for ourselves when she was passed out in a drug haze. I would take my brother and BEG for food bc she wouldn’t feed us. We lived UNDERNEATH trailers in nasty trailer parks in Louisiana.

        My brother is a police officer with a beautiful wife and son.

        I work in accounting, married, 2 children, a nice home and life.

        Neither of us do drugs. We drink occasionally, but it’s definitely not a problem. We’ve definitely never been in rehab, nor have either of us been arrested.

        My point is, one can have a VERY shitty start in life, and still end up normal. She did this to herself. Her parents are both pieces of sh*t, but she is responsible for her OWN actions. Rather or not she chooses to take responsibility for them is her own decision.

      • aims says:

        Sam, you’re an amazing person. To live through that hell, and come out of it sane and normal. Good for you!

        I totally agree. There comes a point in our lives when we have to start making our own decisions, and choose our own path. That’s what being an adult is.

      • Isan says:


        Your story struck a cord with me, what a terrible way to start your life. I’m so glad to read that you and your brother are happy and doing well. Thank you for sharing and all the best!

      • karmasabiatch! says:


        Gosh, I don’t even know you and I’m really proud of you! Kudos for grabbing the good life offered you instead of the bad. People like LL are incapable of seeing ANY opportunities or good in life, because they’re so locked into playing the victim.

        Glad you have such a rewarding life, girlie. Sounds like you worked really hard for it and totally deserve it! *hugs*

      • doofus says:


        My MOST SINCERE admiration for you. Good for both you and your bro that you were able to overcome such a horrible beginning and make a good life for yourselves.

        Crackie, ARE YOU LISTENING?!

      • paranormalgirl says:

        I was raised by nuns in a children’s home – parents were killed when I was 3. I turned out just fine. My former sis-in-law (she used to post here) was raised in similar circumstances to Samigirl (prostitute drug addict mom) and she turned out great, too. You don’t HAVE to be the negative result of a negative situation. You can be the positive result of a negative situation.

      • rashers says:

        I dont think Lindsays situation is comparable to many. 1) abusive father who now exploits her 2) enabling mother who now exploits her 3) early fame, money and adulation before real character could form 4) terrible disease called addiction 5) daily media coverage, armies of paps which are addictive but damaging. 6) access to infinite amounts of cash through her millionaire “boyfriends” 7) friends who sell tabloid stories. 8) an industry that leaves even the most grounded women insecure and anxious.

        Yes she has blown many shots. Thats the pattern of addiction. I remember RDJs many legal troubles. It took years to get his ish straight! And he had alot more working for him ie parents who werent sabotaging him, no TMZ permanently on his tail, no internet ridicule etc.

        RDJ fans ; i’m not suggesting that she is as talented. Just that her failure to grab the chances she has had is just part of the pattern. Maybe her rock bottom will be in jail? Away from the circus that is her life out here.

      • littlestar says:

        Wow samigirl! You’re story is amazing, and so are you. You could definitely teach Lindsay a thing or two about life!

      • erika says:

        cheering you on Sammigirl!

        Lilo needs to cut the ‘I’m sorry Mommy’…and detach herself from the vodka infused nipple of dina lohan and take a cue from sammigirl!

        YOU alone are responsible for the outcome of your live and you only have to apologize to YOURSELF LL for getting into crack mess after crack mess. Say “i’m sorry me, Cracken me, time to get my act together”

        but she won’t and here, I’m saying it, I’m GLAD she’ll never recover and eventually swirl down the drain like cheap dish soap…because i’ve HAD it w/ her.


      • Samigirl says:

        Thank you all for your kind words. No admiration necessary, I just wanted to be a good person, and I think I succeeded.

      • Haolebunny says:

        Samigirl- I have been reading your posts for the last couple of months and you sound like an amazing Mom. You are an example of how to make the most of a terrible situation.

      • Lulu.T.O. says:

        Wow, SamiGirl – I was so impacted by your story. No one knows why some kids are resilient in the face of abuse/neglect and others fall apart.

        I am proud of you, and your brother. Stories like yours give me hope for mankind. Thank you for sharing.

      • WendyNerd says:

        Samigirl, you are awesome. Have you considered writing a book? You could definitely help a lot of people with your story.

      • FLORC says:

        Sami holy hell!
        Thanks for sharing and happy to hear you and your brother came out safe, well adjusted, and healthy. I will give no excuses to Lindsey but everyone is different and approach their obstacles in different ways. We’re all unique. She only seemed to have bad people reinforcing bad behavior and gave into the easy route. Now she’s so far in she may have forgotten how to dig herself out.

    • lin234 says:

      I just wanted to say that I admire you and your brother for turning out so well despite your horrific childhoods. In fact, how did you manage to stay sane under those insane circumstances growing up?

      I’ve often noticed your posts about your kids and I’m sure you are such a great and loving mom to them- giving them a beautiful childhood that every kid deserves.

      You and your brother are amazing.

      • Samigirl says:

        Lin, this all happened before I was 10. I was lucky enough to *finally* get taken out of her care and given to a non blood related family member who would end up adopting me. He is the best dad in the world and I can never re-pay him for what he did.

        I loved my brother and I wanted to take care of him. His dad stepped up to the plate and ended up getting him out of the situation when he was 5 or so. We both got incredibly lucky and MANY blessings to help us out along the way. <3 Thank you for your kindness.

      • lady mary. says:

        @samigirl A big fat hug ,thanku for sharing ur personal life story with us , thats really brave on ur part ,and its nothing short of wonderful how strong and positive ur as a person ,and so is ur brother ,wish u all the happiness in future:)
        @paranormal ,kudos to u 2
        ,for being brave and strong despite everythin ,guys like u and samigirl , are truly inspirational unlike these worthless pile of batshit called”celebrities”

      • Mich says:

        @ Samigirl

        This made me cry. I’m so glad you ended up with such a wonderful Dad!!!

      • Kath says:

        Dads are awesome. We are constantly presented with crappy examples of the deadbeat/abusive/absent kind, but we forget that there are a lot of great dads out there (bio or otherwise).

      • lin234 says:

        @Samigirl- Just like everyone else, I want to give you a hug. Even if it’s only virtual. You really are an inspiration to me.

    • jwoolman says:

      Jennykins- That “mommy left me to sleep in my own vomit” couldn’t have happened unless mommy was also so drunk she was sleeping right next to her in her own vomit. At 17, Lindsay was on her own in LA, living at the Chateau. Mom actually went drinking with her when they were in the same place at the same time. And Lindsay said when she was 15 in an interview that she occasionally had alcohol even at that age. She was well known at age 16-17 and beyond for going into clubs even though underage. So the idea that innocent Lindsay had her first drink at 17 and that put her off it for years is complete fantasy.

  4. elceibeno08 says:

    The answer to Lindsey Lohan’s request to switch rehab facilities (again!) should be a big fat NO. And saying NO to the demanding bitchy Cracken should come from the Judge. Who does LL think she is? Either Betty Ford for 3 months or prison. No more concessions, no more considerate allowances for the great American crack monster.

  5. MellyBee says:

    Her face on the last photo! Spooky new cheekbones! Gah!

    • Apples says:

      I know gross. Hopefully, just makeup and shiny makeup to create an effect.

    • Rumorhasit says:

      When are celebrities going to get sick of these derpy looking suction cup lips?

      They look awful on every single one of them, who has paid for them to be enhanced in such a way. Do they not have mirrors in Hollywood?

      So ready for this trend to be over.

      As for LL it’s not even worth commenting on anymore.

      Except for this….her sugar daddy, the ignorant one who got mulling drugs…he’s got cash, but no celebrity. What’s the justice system going to do with him? Can or will he be able to make a travesty of the system as LL has, cause he’s rich? Eager to see, (and I hope the tabloids follow this so we get a comparison), and Californians deserve to know.

    • SydneySpy says:

      Phew, I just thought it was my tired, sore eyes playing tricks on me. Her cheeks look like headlights.

  6. Dhavynia says:

    OMG the last picture..what’s going on with her cheeks?

    I can’t believe this woman gets away with this sh*t. Talk about unfairness and a blow to the judicial system’s integrity

  7. Me Three says:

    It just makes me sad because in the beginning this girl actually had a good career ahead of her. It’s too bad she’s pretty much been used by anyone and everyone around her–most certainly her parents. They used her up and threw her out before she was even 20. I know she is now responsible for her own life, but I have to admit, there’s a small part of me that feels sorry for her.

    Maybe it’s because I just watched Parent Trap with my niece again…

    • Lia says:

      She was actually a pretty good young actor it’s sad to think where she might have gone if she had not gotten into drugs

    • littlestar says:

      I agree, that’s the thing that pisses me off the most about Lindsay. She could be set for life if she hadn’t turned to drugging and drinking. She could have actually owned her own home and had millions in the bank. She THREW AWAY OPPORTUNITIES most of us will never ever get. Threw it all away to become a prostitute basically. It’s so sad and frustrating.

  8. lovegossip says:

    Whatever happened to Dina’s house being foreclosed? Weren’t they served a few months ago?

  9. Cool Phosphorescent Shimmer says:

    Switching from one rehab place to another will give her more opportunities to screw off and to NOT actually do the stuff she is supposed to be doing in rehab. Travel days, intake days, introductions and orientations (presumably all with pharmaceutical help while she gets accustomed to the new situation)…instead of TREATMENT DAYS. She needs to actually build relationships with the same people who can then evaluate her progress…not be skipping around trying to put (another) one over on the system.

    Did you all see the bits on Lainey about her being paid to go to rehab…BY the rehab places themselves? Interesting theory.

  10. Lia says:

    No one can tell someone else what rock bottom is. It’s different for everyone. Hopefully she reaches hers before she kills herself. But her horrible family life and lack of enforcement by the courts is despicable. How many times can she violate parole without going to jail, especially since she clearly doesn’t take rehab seriously. Some of these judges should have their bank accounts audited for payoffs.

  11. JL says:

    Maybe the judge will outsmart her and let her change facilities all she wants to BUT restarting the “rehab” clock each time she enters a new place. Did 10 days at Betty Ford, NICE now do the whole 90 in Hawaii, did 5 days in Hawaii and 10 at Betty – nice now do all 90 at XX…..
    Now that would be justice!

  12. c'est la vie says:

    Hawaii? She really is a spoiled crack brat, isn’t she.

    It’s so pathetic, it’s almost sad. And what has she done to her face? She looks like a chipmunk.

  13. Georgina says:

    Only Lindsay Lohan is crack-delusional enough to try to turn her court-ordered rehab into a Hawaiian vacation. What do you bet she’ll get her way on this?

  14. LeeLoo says:

    Despite what anyone says, I think Shawn genuinely cares about Lilo and wants to help her. God knows why. But everyone deseveres a decent defense…even *cough* Lindsay Lohan.

    But in no way should this trick be allowed to hustle her way out of Betty Ford. Rehab isn’t Disneyland. Beside, it’s high time someone told her NO. I think telling her no would be a worse punishment than sending her to jail.

  15. Anne says:

    For the love of Pete, what has she done to her cheeks?

  16. Emily says:

    I’m white and have big boobs, but I know that wouldn’t be enough. I’d have to be a celebrity with dirt on someone very important and “friendships” with a bunch of skeezy oil billionaires :( .

  17. Rita says:

    Lindsay wants Shawn Holley for her attorney because she knows she can play her. Shawn is a smart lady but the relationship does neither of them any good. Lindsay is a player and only plays with those who give her what she wants, not what she needs.

    btw- Good luck to her previous NY attorney in collecting his fee and expenses.

  18. Isan says:

    What difference would it make at this point what rehab she attends? After reading the Pierce Morgan interview it’s obvious she is in severe denial and three months in any clinic won’t be enough for a real break through.

    It’s sad but I think this will continue for years and what ever the outcome of it, she lost out. The wisest thing to do I guess would be to quit Hollywood and go to school, then she might be able to provide for herself and have a life of her own.

  19. judyjudy says:

    Aloha Lindsay! I’m sure it will just be a matter of days before we see photos of you in Hawaii because we know you’ll get exactly what you ask for.

    Seriously, put her in jail. She’s insisting that she doesn’t do drugs so rehab isn’t going to ‘fix’ her.

  20. Sisi says:

    and now we know why the cracken went to brazil. it was a paycheck for shawn.

  21. Nev says:

    Hawaii…….sigh….one day.

  22. Sumodo1 says:

    Phenomenon or just my imagination: girls who do a lot of crack get “potato faces?” I have seen the bad teeth and bad skin, bloated faces, and recently a lot of misshapen cheeks and faces. Is this a thing or basically, were they just dumb, ugly girls? Hence, Crackie’s noggin looking so swollen?

  23. Quinn says:

    Number one, the plastic surgery fad de jour- cheek implants- needs to die a quick death. They look AWFUL on everyone. LORD, everyone’s bone structure is unique…throwing in random, huge cheekbones does NOT work for most people. GEESH.

    Second, can anyone doubt the mental and physical state of Lohan when they see her hands??? Dirty, grimy, nails to the quick and bloody cuticles. Man, those hands speak volumes.

  24. PortlandJan says:

    It must be Christmas in May: 2 Lohan posts, and a 3rd for Bieber. I’m in snark heaven!

  25. jojo says:

    i feel sorry for the hawaiians, but it will be nice to isolate her thousands of miles away from mainland USA. I just wish it would be guam, or some other place with no ‘perks’…

  26. RN says:

    “She was like, ‘I’m sorry, Mommy.’ ”

    Wouldn’t it be, “I’m sorry, Mummy”? You know, since she calls her mother “mum” and all….

  27. The Original Mia says:

    Delusional bitca. As if the DA is going to approve this. Still trying to grasp the concept that a legal entity would even go through the trouble of coddling a convicted felon with a drug problem.

  28. Shelly says:

    She fails to realize that this is court-ordered rehab – she’s not supposed to like it! That being said, this whole rehab thing is a joke. She is obviously not taking it seriously, doesn’t think she needs it, and it won’t work. Again. They may as well have just put her in jail.

  29. paranormalgirl says:

    Rehab will not work for Lindsay because she doesn’t believe she NEEDS rehab, nor does she want any change in her life. She needs help with the personality disorder that’s hiding under the crack shenanigans before she even realizes she HAS a problem with drugs and/or alcohol.

  30. littlestar says:

    She is seriously messed up in the head. As LeeLoo posted on the other Lindsay thread – she is a narcissist!!! Does she not realize that the only reason she is in rehab was so she would avoid jail time for a crime she committed?! How in the world does she think she can now just skip out on rehab because she thinks she doesn’t need it??? Okay, if you don’t need rehab, go straight to jail then.

    I am beyond disgusted with the California justice system.

  31. erika says:


    her manner of dressing KILLS me! wtf? would you really pose for a picture looking like THAT?

    she dresses herself while snorting crack off the closet hangers right?

    -are those friendship bracelets? w/ a black leather ‘ensemble’?

    - the red/white/blue 1960s love child indian bead necklace? love beads? really?

    -the mismatched gumball machine jewelry

    -are those burn marks? the little dot on her hand..? looks like a cigarette burn

    -chipped nailpolish…always…chipped

    and this outfit deserves a red carpet pose? really? I’m just saying that my pajama ensemble looks more pulled together than this..

  32. Mich says:

    Hawaii or Antigua? I think I just wee’ed myself laughing. Given her own statements that she ‘doesn’t have a problem’ and considers being sent to rehab (instead of prison) a ‘joke’, on what grounds could such a move be justified? Better treatment for addictions she doesn’t think she has?

    I feel so sorry for everyone at Betty Ford trying to get real help for themselves right now. Someone like Lindsay is toxic in these situations and can easily derail the progress of others.

  33. logan says:

    A Carnival Cruise or a Sandals vacation would be nice. I understand she wants to go to Florida or Hawaii. I didn’t know rehab and a summer at the beach could be combined.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      A Carnival Cruise like the ones we’ve seen in the news the last few months would be great for LL. My suggestion: let Lindsay board a cruise ship that hasn’t had any maintenance for awhile. Other people should get on the ship, too—so she won’t suspect this is a “special” cruise.

      Let the ship go far enough out to be considered “stranded.” Then get the regular customers off the ship while Lindsay is passed out. Cut the power to the ship. The result will be a nice relaxing cruise for Lindsay, who will have to face herself without the distractions of the enabling that surrounds her in her daily life.

  34. Bess says:

    Michael Lohan gives all of his “exclusives” to RadarOnline. He has been pushing the Lukens Center in FL for Lindsay for a while.

  35. Andrea says:

    She prob gez away with it too…here options were.90 days in lockdown rehab or over 200.days in jail. And now it looks like theirs no rehabs for her that have the conditions and she just keeps skating by. I’d like to hear what the prosecution really thinks and find it interesting theres no statement from him about this at all.

  36. The Original G says:

    …..doesn’t want to stay at BF? She only employed two lawyers and countless private jets to get herself INTO rehab? If she went when Holley first arranged this, las Novemeber, she’d be long done by now.

    I think Milo’s just trying to make a few bucks off her while she’s away. Expect the “feud” with Dina to continue to keep them both solvent.

    Lindsay? I’m really losing interest. If she really wants out, she can walk out the door and do her 46 minute sentance anytime.

  37. bangarang says:

    Her cheekbone implants look like jigsaw from saw

  38. ladybert62 says:

    Are those GIGANTIC chipmunk cheeks new? I dont remember them from other pictures – they look gross.

    DO NOT let her control the rehab situation – she needs to be controlled and should NOT be allowed to change places.

    I just lost respect for Shawn Holley.

  39. Susie Q says:

    She should have gotten her story straight with her mom, mom says she knows she needs rehab and she says she doesn’t need it. What a joke.

  40. Lisa says:

    Even Stevie Nicks put in her full time at BF. Come on, Lohan.

  41. Thiajoka says:

    Not everyone is able to pull themselves up by their bootstraps. Not excusing LiLo, just making the point that abuse does cause damage to some and they shouldn’t be judged as losers because they are damaged.

    Actually, it causes damage to all. I honestly have to question people who claim they escaped scot-free from the damage of abuse, especially extreme abuse. Maybe they’ve lived fairly normal lives and not managed to be addicted or criminals, but something tells me they probably have some issues that they don’t realize they have although others around them likely do realize it.

    • paranormalgirl says:

      Some have managed to find themselves good therapists and worked through the issues they have. It can be done and it often is. I have seen people who lived through the most horrific abuse and come out on the other side as the most amazing people. Those were the people who WANTED to move past what happened. Then there are those who do not want to move on and those who simply cannot for whatever reason.

      • Thiajoka says:

        I absolutely agree–and I’m not referring to people who have sought help and got it. I’m referring to people who claim that they came through a difficult childhood unscathed and managed to live a wonderful, productive life without having to deal with the fallout from that which damaged them–I call bs on that because it DID damage them in some way and they are either in denial altogether or are hiding the damage due to some strange reason–fear of what other people will think, perhaps, or fear of facing themselves.

        To me those people are no different than someone who survived a natural disaster stating that if the other people had only been as determined, good, or strong as they are, then they wouldn’t have been damaged or died. Not that I know anyone who did say that after surviving a natural disaster, mind you–but it really surprises me when someone claims to have come from abuse and then publicly derides others who have as being simply losers because they didn’t come out the other side as strong as the braggarts are.

        And, yes, I’m one of the ones who didn’t come out as strong as some claim they have, even though I’ve managed to stay out of jail and away from addiction to drugs and booze (not ciggies, though), but I’ve definitely been damaged. And for that reason, knew better than to bring kids into this vicious circle. And try not to be as dismissive of others who have suffered abuse UNLESS they are claiming to be superhuman.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        No one comes out of life totally unscathed. It’s what we do with our damage that matters. I still have abandonment issues, even as a 40+ psychiatrist. It’s just something that is mine to deal with and I refuse to let it compromise my relationships. That I got through a divorce without ending up in a fetal position for the rest of my life is a wonder.

  42. Holden says:

    I actually feel awful for the regular people who are at Betty Ford trying to recover and now have to put up with this enormous distraction as well. Don’t worry about Hawaii or Antigua Lohan, you can go there for your next rehab assignment.

  43. G says:

    Oh really Dina? Did she really say “Mommy”?? I just can NOT with this woman.

  44. hannah says:

    How long until the IRS puts her sorry ass into prison ?

  45. Stefanie says:

    I hate to say this, and I HOPE it doesn’t happen, but the only way this bitch will learn anything is when she kills someone.

  46. gg says:

    Lohan’s father is making everything far worse. From what he says, he’s the one who started the rebuke of the first rehab. So now she thinks Hawaii would be a better rehab for her. Right.

  47. ShaCur says:

    That piers morgan interview was absolute garbage. He played into all her delusions, didn’t ask any challenging questions, and I could practically see him nodding along to whatever ridiculous claim she made (doesn’t like to drink? Only did drugs 4 times in her life? Just has really bad luck???) There are SOOOOO many things a good journalist could use to refute her little fantasies – Well documented proof that she can’t argue. Well, she can try, but at least people reading the interview won’t be commenting on how she seems like such a sweet girl who can’t catch a break. True story, read some of the comments.

  48. grabbyhands says:

    I’m not really buying that she only came back because Lohan is now on a payment plan-her legitimate employment prospects aren’t looking any better than they were when she dumped her, so I don’t think Shawn believes she is suddenly going to get responsible and pay her. I think it’s more a case of someone missed the attention she got by being Lohan’s lawyer.

  49. e.non says:

    doesn’t the irs have first dibs on payments…

    sorry, but have lost total respect for holley for taking her back. it will be funny when lohan screws her again…

  50. ChocoChipDstryr says:

    Two thoughts:

    1) I’d rather be owed a load of money than accept the sweaty, coke stained bills that Lindsay will pay Shawn.

    2) I miss the pre-internet days when former child stars hit the skids and disappeared only to show up once or twice a year on ET or E! because of legal trouble (Todd Bridges, Dana Plato, Scott Schwartz -didn’t he do porn?). Now you can’t escape them.

  51. Norman says:

    Does Shawn Holley really expect to see a cent from Lindsay Lohan? Knowing that no one whats to hire for more than peanuts for films that will tank, her “priority” matter of spending, her IRS issues and her recent hiring and firing of a known dirty lawyer? Good luck with that one.

  52. Jaxx says:

    After the age of 18 parents cease to be a good excuse for bad decisions and bad behavior. At that age, any person can enter therapy of their own free will and get help for destructive behaviors. It is not easy to unlearn trauma and a poor beginning but it can be done and is done by people every single day.

    It is especially true when raising children. Just because your mother beat you is no excuse to pass it on. If it happens even once and you don’t get help then it is no longer your mother’s fault. It is yours. There is just no excuse for abusing your child. Ever.

  53. KellyinSeattle says:

    Samigirl: You are awesome!!
    Lindsay is a prime example of someone who has it all and throws it all away.

  54. Lulu.T.O. says:

    Hawaii? Antigua? What does she think this is, a freakin’ vacation?? I guess she is finding Palm Desert too hot for her. LOL. Too bad Lilo. You made this bed, now you get to fry in it.

  55. WendyNerd says:

    Call me crazy, but I was thinking about this, and this is what my course of action would be if I cared enough about her to “save” her and has the access/resources to do it:

    Lock her in a large bathroom, which would be cleaned beforehand, and have her chained to something so that she’d be a able to move around enough to use the shower, toilet, etc, but wouldn’t be able to escape. Have a camera on her the entire time, have a little dog flap on the door though which to give her food/water/fresh clothes. Have a bodyguard outside the door and watching her via the security cam so she doesn’t hurt herself. If she messes up the bathroom, I give her soap and water and she has to clean it up. If she wants new clothes, she has to wash her current clothes in the sink and then give the wet clean clothes back through the door to dry before she gets her new clothes. She has a little air mattress to sleep on, she is fed and kept healthy, but no luxuries to speak of. I give her regular “tough love” lectures where I remind her where she is in life, what “normal” really is, make her take a long look at herself, the things she’s done, explaining to her why her excuses are bullshit, and basically verbally beat her with the reality of what she is and what she has done to her life until I’m satisfied that she has come to realize she is a wasteful, malicious, entitled, prematurely aged, bratty, self-obsessed drunken has-been, that the world owes her nothing and she only has herself to blame. Then, once she has actually figured this out, daily sessions with a PROPER therapist. No contact with her mother, father, the internet, nothing. No contact with the outside world until not only has she faced facts and actually shows signs of real, honest-to-God improvement AND the press has lost interest in her completely. Then, after that, she can come out of the bathroom, get a REAL job, and be monitored for a good couple of years, and then we’ll see.

    She has to be demoralized, and not in any sort of sexualized way. She’s probably doing all kind sof sick prostitution stuff, but even with that, she’s the center of attention anyways. Same thing with her legal problems. She needs to be demoralized in a way that teaches her she’s not the center of the Universe, no one needs her, and she’s not entitled to any sort of gratification or special attention. Because she’s a narcissist and that is the root of it all. She thinks that everyone should be doing things for her, that she knows everything and that the only reason she has problems is because the world refuses to handle her AWESOMENESS. She needs to be deprived of attention, luxury, and any sort of resource that would enable her. Just cut off and demoralized for a while until she finally comes to terms with everything.

    Maybe I’m crazy, but I think that’s the only thing that would work. Basically, prison, but I’ve given up hope that she’ll ever actually spend more than a few hours there. Someone needs to create prison for her.

      damn smart idea. would it work on ho lo? maybe….just maybe. she’s that F-ed up

    • Polk8dot says:

      You realize that most people completely agree with your proposed course of action, right? The problem is not that nobody knows what to do with her – the problem is the insanely lax laws that put the offender, their needs and ‘feelings’ first.
      The way our society is structured, this has ZERO chance of ever coming to pass. She would have to be institutionalized by court order, against her will and under curatorship. Put in a padded cell at a psych hospital, and kept there until THE WORLD forgot about her. Maybe then she’d have half a chance, although I doubt it. She has a Narcissistic, Malignant Personality, with Delussions of Grandeur, Entitlement issues and total inability to think about the results of her own actions and take corrective measures. She would most likely spend all that solitary time BLAMING THE WORLD for all it has done to her. There is NO hope for this crack-addled hooka’ because there is no responsibility for her own actions.

      The only other way for us to be free of her, and her having a chance to rebound, is if she were arrested in some Third World or Asian hell-hole like Thailand or Malaysia, WITH A LOAD OF DRUGS ON HER. A decade in their prison (or a lifetime, depending on how much disrespect a judge would tolerate) would MAYBE make a dent in her psyche of entitlement. Again though, unlikely because she needs to have some basic human responses for that, and by now all she has is a Superiority and Malicious Persecution Complex.

  56. CharmingFrock says:

    Too bad we cannot count on the jail to keep her for more than a few hours, since she doesn’t need rehab, Lindsey should go straight to jail.

  57. Marybel says:

    This girl is so beyond reality in her fantasy world. The rules do not apply to her. I want to see her locked up and told NO repeatedly until she breaks down and understands that she is no better or different than any other human. She has no regard for anyone other than herself. No one is helping her. Shawn Holley just wants the money and the free advertising.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      I have to agree about the word “No” being said to her, for apparently the first time in her life.

      Why shouldn’t she go on acting out & being a 3-year-old? There are never any consequences.

      And my apologies to 3-year-olds, on second thought. All of the 3-year-olds I have known behave much better than Lindsay.

  58. EscapedConvent says:

    Didn’t Lindsay fancy herself the spiritual reincarnation of Elizabeth Taylor? (She was *so* Elizabeth for awhile there.)

    Someone ought to bring her up to speed on Elizabeth Taylor’s history at the Betty Ford Center.

  59. Sonia says:

    Aren’t there rehabs in places she would hate? Say…Alaska in the dead of winter? Siberia? Kazakstahn?

  60. Kristin says:

    So with crackhead finally in a rehab center, I only have one question: Does she have to pay for an extra room to house her double chin?

    • Polk8dot says:

      Yep. And it is right next door to the other extra one in which she stores all her LV trunks she lugged with her. Because girl needs to be able to have 3 changes of wardrobe per day, dont’t you know? Who ever heard of washing stuff?Especially in rehab, where she’d be required to do it herself?
      I think that explains her obsession with shopping – she was never taught that there are these wonderous machines on this planet, which will take your dirty clothing and wash it into cleanliness.
      Guess it is the same thing as her not knowing about soap and showers. The decades of dirt, grime, STDs and other ‘foreign’ substances on her body repulse me on just a thought. How can anyone stand her company? She must physically stink. And if she ever touched my skin I’d need to bathe in bleach for a month to remove the deadly stuff she’s become the host for.

  61. Banskygirl says:

    I get so confused !!!! She gets out of jail cause of rehab yet tries to get out what was given to her ? I don’t understand how she can reject what was essentially what she agreed to because jail was so bad.
    I feel like she has no right to complain . And if she does she should get what was originally intended for her , jail.

  62. snorky says:

    why does anybody care about this common looking chick?
