Lindsay Lohan is the picture of health & sobriety in NYC, except not so much

Here are some new photos of Lindsay Lohan out and about yesterday in NYC. She was seen in the company of a male friend (who looks more like a bodyguard/handler type), smoking a cig and playing with her phone. She looks healthy-ish. By that I mean, it’s nice to see her out and about in daylight hours and not falling down drunk at 3 am. I think it’s nice that she’s no longer keeping vampire hours. That being said, she’s still up to her old tricks. And yes, I mean “tricks” in the “oldest profession” way.

Lindsay Lohan is fiercely defending her decision to hang with a friend who has an even more checkered past with drugs than her, and actually thinks it’s a positive step for her recovery — problem is … she’s delusional.

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ … she doesn’t understand why her shopping trip with Vikram Chatwal would raise concerns she’s hanging with a bad crowd, and putting herself in danger of a relapse.

As we previously reported … Chatwal was busted for drug possession in April, but avoided jail by agreeing to 12 months of in-patient rehab. We’re told Lindsay thinks Vikram is good company because, like her, he’s been through several rehab stints … and is currently in recovery.

Here’s the flaw in that argument … multiple drug counselors — from reputable clinics — tell us Lindsay’s playing with fire by hanging with old friends connected to her partying ways.

Most counselors told us … it’s “not recommended” for recovering addicts to hang with another addict — especially if it’s been a short stretch since they got out of rehab.

Lindsay’s been out for 22 days, and while it’s unclear when Vikram was last in treatment …his drug bust was just 4 months ago. Not to mention, neither volunteered for rehab, but had to be forced by a judge.

As one counselor put it … “Why hang out with someone whose commitment to sobriety isn’t airtight.”

Ha, it’s funny that people are worried that Lindsay hanging around with Vikram is a bad thing because of DRUGS. While I have no doubt that Vikram still uses drugs (and Lohan too), this association is a disaster because he’s married and he pays for Lindsay’s “services”.

There’s some other minor Lohan stuff going around – have you looked at Lindsay’s website recently? It’s really sad. Lainey said that Lohan is trying to make it like Goop, but I think Lohan is aspiring to be Kim Kardashian at this point. That’s what the website looks like – a really budget, sad version of Kim’s Celebuzz blog.

Oh, and TMZ had another Lohan-positive story several days ago about how Lindsay so “impressed” Danny McBride while working on Eastbound & Down that now he’s going to develop an HBO show with Lindsay attached. Yeah. I’m sure that will happen. I’m sure that’s not another cracked-out pipe dream of Lindsay clinging to whatever legitimate actor she can find and riding the association for all it’s worth.

    But…but…she’s changed this time! She swears it, Oprah!
    If that guy got sentenced to 12 months in-patient…why is he out hanging around with her?

  2. Amelia says:

    She looks better, definitely.
    But that’s not really saying much considering what she was like pre-rehab stint number 100.
    Maybe this time?

  3. mischa says:

    I’m thinking her face looks a bit better. She’s lost the beauty she once had (obviously), but .. small steps, I guess. Her lips don’t look as ridiculous as they looked before she went away for three months.
    As for her sobriety – meh. Can’t say I care all that much at this point.

  4. OriginallyBlue says:

    Ya, I’m sure that won’t end badly if they hang out. Wasn’t she already seen hanging out with him last week for dinner or something?

  5. dorothy says:

    She needs a bodyguard? Why?

  6. sqs says:

    Her fingernails look grotty, yuck.

  7. Nashville Girl says:

    22 days without a major incident is like 5 years in Cracken time.

  8. Aud says:

    Picture of health with a cigarette hanging out of her mouth…yeah right!

  9. Jackson says:

    Is that her Sober Coach that I keep reading about? For a moment I thought it was Kiefer Sutherland and was ready to cry. Of topic, but has anyone else seen KS’s Cuervo commercials? They’re great! As for LL….uh, she looks like she’s still off of the Adderall so I guess that’s a positive thing?

  10. Frida_K says:

    Too-short shorts, puffy hands and filthy fingernails, smoky treat firmly clamped between trout lips?

    Need I say more?

  11. Laura says:

    She looks decent, and her fingernails look fine! I hold out hope, why? because apparently it springs eternal.

  12. houseofbeatrix says:

    She is wearing a bucket ton of full coverage makeup. Check her chin line. Hopefully,she is on her way to an audition. ..

  13. StormsMama says:

    The disgusting cigarette is NOT SEXY or mysterious girl.
    Just nastiness all around

  14. GeeMoney says:

    Her relapse is inevitable. Countdown… 3…2…1…

  15. Why says:

    Why complain..who else is gonna pay her costs?Mom?Dad??No Lndsy is working for them (getting them publicity good are bad)..She has no choice.

  16. Mayda says:

    there is NO WAY HBO would risk working with this mess on her own project. NO WAY.

  17. Crash says:

    As long as she’s a redhead, I assume she’s trying to maintain her sobriety. Anyone else notice that when she’s in party mode…at her worst…she bleaches her hair to that horrible white blonde shade? It’s like she has a split personality. If I see that white/blonde … she’s gone again!

    • shannon says:

      I totally have noticed it, maybe because I’m a natural redhead? When Lindsay DOES dye it red while she’s still high as a kite it’s never her true color. When she gets close to her natural color I tend to believe she’s doing better. When she’s living in the real world, she realizes she looks better without the plastic surgery and nasty bleached hair and they go away. They come right back as soon as she goes back to using. She may not be 100% sober now but based on the heavy contouring makeup I can tell she knows her chin area looks bad. The area with the chin implant she was so proud of and showed off all the time as a cracked-out mess.

  18. Shelly says:

    Lindsay looks pretty good here. She’s not spray tanned orange and she actually looks clean. I do wish she’d cut her hair just a little, but she looks so much better than she did several months ago.

  19. Barbara says:

    Yes, she looks like she has bathed. But she also looks to be losing weight pretty darn fast. Adderall perhaps??

  20. Meggin says:

    I’m going to find something nice to say about Lindsay and say that I love when she has her natural red hair. It suits her a thousand times better.

  21. Asdfg says:

    I think her new site/blog will be good for her. Every other celebrity has their own website so why can’t she?

    I like how it’s set up and it’s definitely more interesting than Kim Kardashian’s blog. Sorry, Kim is super fake and all her pictures look the same.

  22. LahdidahBaby says:

    She looks 1000x better than before rehab. The red hair is stunning, skin is clear, and her weight is much better. (but yah, the fingernail dirt is gross.)

    Question: why is she wearing a wedding band? (Not for its bling quotient, since it’s a plain, thin band.) Odd choice.

  23. UsedToBeLulu says:

    You know what? I believe she is still sober (for the time being) because the double chins are no where to be found, despite her being heavier now than when she went in. I say the double chins are our sign of when she starts drinking again (alcohol bloat). What say ye all?

  24. bluhare says:

    Why is she wearing a wedding ring?

  25. Claudia says:

    It looks like she’s been doing fine. I’m glad to hear it. I am hopeful she can commit to this.

  26. newtsgal says:

    Holy crap!
    Her lips will get across that road, way before she does….lmao!

  27. skuddles says:

    LOL… her “shopping trip” with Vikram. Is that what they call it now when a junkie ho hooks up with her drug dealer/john?

  28. Roxy says:

    She looks good. She’s smoking a cig, big f***ing deal!! Give the girl a break!!

  29. vketjo says:

    LOL…….Sorry those whom say she looks good with smooth skin …..that is photo shop sweetie look on your photo camera programming …My daughter uses it all the time…..Who to spot the difference look at the legs….and she thinned out the chin area also….and washed that weave she has. …..other then that she looks just like a street hooker in that hooker outfit ….

  30. vketjo says:

    I always thought that your chose of shoes make or break a outfit….and I just have to say she has horrendously bad taste in shoes……every time …Terrible shoes Ugly shoes disgusting shoes….and this look is not different…..clunky boots again….Gag !

  31. Bess says:

    Per LL’s instagram, she’s not going to Venice to do promotion for The Canyon’s.

    I never thought she’d turn down a free trip to Venice. LL’s had two good decisions regarding travel in a row.

    That Lindsay Lohan site… I went, saw “bio” section and decided to read how Lohan (or her team) will describe her career. It was worth it. Spoiler alert – no mention of arrests or rehabs or jails. Like that never happened. But whole “bio” is so hilarious. I’l quote some parts:
    “Without question, Lindsay Lohan is one of the most-loved and most-talked about Hollywood stars of our time. An actress, model, singer, and icon, Lindsay broke into the industry at an early age after being discovered for her distinct look and presence behind the camera”

    “Her starring roles have run the gamut of modern-day cinema. From family-friendly favorites and romantic comedies (‘Herbie: Fully Loaded,’ ‘Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen,’ and ‘Just My Luck’) to her critically acclaimed roles in more dramatic films (‘A Prairie Home Companion’, ‘Bobby,’ ‘Chapter 27,’ and ‘Georgia Rule’ ), Lindsay has proven her abilities as a top actress with range, versatility, and a commanding allure.”

    “In addition to an extensive acting portfolio, Lindsay has also released two popular recording albums: her platinum debut, ‘Speak,’ which featured her hit single ‘Rumors,’ and a darker, more introspective follow-up effort, ‘A Little More Personal.’ Easily a quadruple threat, Lindsay added designer to her resume in 2009, releasing a luxury line of leggings and fashion wear called 6126”.

    “The star has also graced the small screen multiple times, dishing her share of comedic punch for cameos in ‘Glee’ and ‘Ugly Betty’ and starring in TV films like ‘Labor Pains’ and more recently ‘Liz and Dick,’ in which Lindsay was chosen to play the coveted role of Elizabeth Taylor. In 2013, Lindsay returns to her first love as an actress with the premiere of the highly anticipated indie-drama, ‘The Canyons.”’

    “With every cadence and nuance in Lindsay’s career, her capacity to keep the public on its toes, guessing, and intrigued has been a key ingredient to her one-of-a-kind journey and fame. Poised for an epic return to the spotlight, undoubtedly all eyes will be locked on Lindsay.”

  33. Str8Shooter says:


    Two weeks, tops, she’ll be in trouble yet again. She needs to be locked up in jail if she’s ever going to get clean.

  34. Dannielle says:

    You know, if there was ever a person that might be the poster child for addiction being a disease, it would be the Cracken. I’ve wanted her to get better for so long. But it’s as if she can’t help herself. She will always implode. And that’s horrible, but it seems to be a testament to the crippling nature of addiction.

  35. 90291 says:

    Please for the love of god cover those tater thighs

  36. laura says:

    She looks great here, to be honest.

  37. marie dadario says:

    Lifes to short be happy..

  38. Axis2ClusterB says:

    Whatever her sober coach gets paid, it ISN’T ENOUGH.

  39. Rachel says:

    Just for fun, I clicked the link to Lindsay Lohan’s website – it is unintentionally HILARIOUS! Totally not real comments from real people, can tell handlers and employees are writing “Great job, Linds!” on her terrible turn in The Canyons, “We love and support you!” re: forced rehab causing non-attendance at movie premiere. Srsly, if you haven’t checked out her website please do, it is a RIOT! Oh, the humanity…
