Lindsay Lohan crack- blackmailed Lifetime into paying her Marmont bill

On Sunday, we discussed the fact that Lindsay Lohan was back to being crackie at the Chateau Marmont, after a few months of being “banned” for not paying her $46,000 bill. Then on Monday, we heard that Lindsay was going to give some kind of extensive (ha!) interview to Barbara Walters next month, to promote Lifetime’s Liz & Dick. Well, put those two stories together and what do you get? A cracked-out breach of ethics and a massive cracktastrophe for Lifetime. According to The Daily, LL basically told Lifetime that she would not do any promotion for Liz & Dick if they didn’t pay her Marmont bill. So the bill was paid and LL agreed to the Walters interview. I wonder if Barbara minds being a pawn in a cracked-out blackmail/hustle?

Lindsay Lohan agreed to be interrogated by Barbara Walters to promote “Liz & Dick” because the film’s producers agreed to pay her overdue $46,000 bill at Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, Flash has learned.

Lohan was thrown out of her favorite hotel in August after living there for 47 days, and racking up such charges as $3,100 for the mini-bar, and $686 for cigarettes. The troubled actress claimed the producers of “Liz & Dick” were supposed to pay the bill.

With “Liz & Dick,” the story of Elizabeth Taylor’s tumultuous two marriages to Richard Burton, set to air on Lifetime on Nov. 25, the producers need Lohan to promote the made-for-TV movie.

“She had them over a barrel,” one source told Flash. “She demanded that the hotel bill be cleared up.” And it was. Lohan reappeared at Chateau last week in a low-cut, sequined mini-dress with a group of girlfriends for late-night tea and salads.

Her interview with Walters, yet to be taped, is scheduled to air Nov. 16 on “20/20,” and will delve into the dynamics of her dysfunctional family, including last Wednesday’s 4 a.m. phone call to her father, Michael Lohan, where she accused her mother, Dina, of using cocaine. Michael taped the conversation and either sold it, or leaked it for free, to TMZ. Lindsay later recanted the accusation.

Lindsay also made news recently by endorsing Mitt Romney for president. It turns out, she’s not even registered to vote.

[From The Daily]

Lindsay’s not even registered to vote? How shocking! I hope the GOP launches an extensive and hard-hitting investigation into this epic voter fraud! We need legislation to ensure that every (white, Republican!) crackhead is not denied the right to vote!

As for the other stuff, the crack hustle, the crack blackmail, the broke, busted ass that is Lindsay Lohan… I knew the “Lindsay paid her Marmont bill” story was too good to be true. Of course she doesn’t have $46,000 lying around to pay her own way. Of course she would threaten to pull her promotional work for the film. God, I wish Lifetime would have called her bluff – because that’s exactly what it was. Do you really think Lindsay would miss an opportunity to “promote” her big comeback role? Do you think wild horses could drag her away from the bank of cameras? Of course not. So let Lindsay throw her crackie hissy fits and let her sad little crack-hustling attempts wither on the vine.

    That’s the price of doing business with this Crackhead.

    • Eleonor says:

      you’re so right. They knew since the beginning she was a mess.

    • Dotty✿ says:

      Heres what i don’t get… they know how she is and what she’s about, yet they still offer roles and chances and pay her shitty bills at the Marmont. IF I owned the Marmont i would still keep the ban on her even after paying it. Its just going to happen again. She’s always involved in some type of rigamarole

      • Canda says:

        The ban was only until she paid her bill. The letter from the manager made it clear that she would be welcomed back when the bill was settled. She’s too much free publicity for the place for them to actually ban her for being a delusional crackie piece of shit.

      • Annie says:

        Well if the Marmont continues to extend her credit then they are really stupid. Hopefully the manager at least makes her pay up front- otherwise keep yor sob stories to yourself

    • phlyfiremama says:

      OMG!! Chateau Marmont got Crackmailed~ best freshly coined word EVER on this blog…;)

  2. Ailine says:

    Didn’t she just give her mom 40k? She couldn’t have paid her bill with that?

  3. marie says:

    this chick is beyond disgusting. Plus, as someone else stated (I forget) the only reason she’s voting for Romney is because Obama ignored her OR she’s hoping to be invited back to the Correspondents Dinner by Fox News-no one cares who she’s voting for. If I’m ever in the market for crack (which I won’t be) then I will take her advice..

    • jojo says:

      or romney is the only candidate that has agreed to give her a presidential pardon in the next fourth years for the next crack drama she decides to do…

    • Canda says:

      Speaking of disgusting, look at her hands! She has the hands of an old lady, especially her left hand in the 2nd picture. Her entire body is breaking down and waving white flags at every turn.

  4. CamColty says:

    Late night tea and salads ?! Ha !

  5. Boo says:

    How does she get away with this crap? Wasn’t she contractually bound to do PR (as part of her original salary) like every other actor is? It’s called breach of contract, Lifetime Asshole Lawyers, and the lawsuit would have garnered even more press for your low- budget, cracked-out, laughable cable movie!

    DO NOT WATCH THE MOVIE. If you do, the terrorist Lohan wins.

    • NerdMomma says:

      That was my first thought too- that she must have promo work written into her contract. But you are right, the lawsuit would have done way more for the movie than whatever boring interviews she gives about how much she’s changed and what a homebody she is now! Big fail there, Lifetime.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      MOVE THAT CONTRACT…I’M LINDSEY LOHAN!!!!

    • deehunny says:

      totally terrorism. to do the movie without promotion may cost lifetime more money (delay, legal fees, low ratings). probably cheaper to pay the extortionist

  6. bowers says:

    If Lifetime did this, they deserve all that happens to them. I doubt she’ll be called for another “movie” for them.

  7. Charlotte says:

    Steve Dina Honig Lohan is going to have to crack deny this now.

  8. the original bellaluna says:

    She’s lucky I don’t work for Lifetime, because I’d have told her to f*ck off and get bent!

    Honestly, I cannot fathom how the producers of SM5 were savvy enough to threaten to sue her Cracken-ass for breach of contract, but Lifetime is not.

    And since when has Lifetime EVER had “promotion” for one of their turdfest movies?

    p.s. – Since these last two debacles (L&D and SM5) NO ONE SHOULD EVER HIRE HER AGAIN!!!!!! Are you listening, stupid H-Wood dumbasses?

    • Charlotte says:

      And what happened to the woman who owned the trailer? Did Lifetime make that go away too?

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Legitimate question, Char. I NEVER heard another word out of that woman, after the initial story came out.

        So has she been *ahem* taken care of? And by whom? MiLo? Lifetime? Viki?

      • Madisyn says:

        After the woman’s story came out about her wrecked and vandalized trailer, we heard nada. I’m thinking as Lifetime was responsible, Lifetime paid the woman off and probably signed a confidentiality agreement to keep quiet. That still chaps my hide thinking about what this SLAG did to that trailer. . .

      • Veruca says:

        @Charlotte –

        She crackmailed her, too.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Thanks Mad! And hey, where ya been?

      • Charlotte says:

        Eurgh. She is repugnant. I am not seeing a single redeeming feature from any of these three. WO must have the best dirt to keep them all in the spotlight and out of jail. The rumours of underage sex tapes must be true.

      • Madisyn says:

        I’m floating around Belle. You know you can always find me on tmz. How you been?

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Mad – Crazy busy! I think I’ll join you on a raft for a float in the vat.

        I ordered Chinese for dinner, and as that bank commercial said “Mom’s closed.” ;)

    • Izzy says:

      Honestly, I needed a cracktini just to get through this sordid story. I am SO over this cracked-out, crackie mess of a crackhead.

  9. Mia 4S says:

    Not sure I buy this. She would have had promotion built into the contract she signed with Lifetime. If she backed out they could have sued her (and gotten as much, if not more, publicity). This would set a VERY dangerous precedent for Lifetime in dealing with actors. This feels a bit like trying to distract from the more likely places the money came from…*side eye*.

  10. dorothy says:

    Lifetime crawled into bed with this mess, they deserve what happened to them. She continues to prove why studios should not to work with her, just another nail in her professional coffin.

    • Eleonor says:

      Until she goes on to be a public mess, and get the world to talk about her, hiring her means hiring a lot of free publicity and attention.
      We have to wait until people don’t talk about her anymore.

  11. MrsBPitt says:

    OMG…I went to the movies this weekend to see Argo, and got there early…they were promoting Liz and Dick on the screen…WOW…does it look bad…and I don’t mean run-of-the-mill bad, I am talking, volcano erupting, hurricane blowing, tsunami drowning, bad…by the way Argo was great!

  12. Hautie says:

    Even with Lifetime paying off (if they were really the ones) her long over due bill. Marmont would not let her back in. Didn’t we just get told it required Lohan calling the owner and crying to him, to get the ban lifted.

    So maybe Lohan can visit the bar/restaurant now, but hotel management will not let her live there? Maybe that was the deal the owner struck with her.

    Because of all the sh*t she pulled this last time. That manager has every right to ban her. And the owner should stand behind his managers decisions.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      I agree. When one is in a supervisory (owner-y) position, one does well to remember that “the hired face” is looking out for him/her/them and their best interests.

      Allowing every sobbing crackhead back into the establishment would set a dangerous precedent. (12 years property management speaking here.)

      Of course, this IS The Chateau we’re talking about, and this is the SECOND time she’s been “banned” from there, so…

    • Kate (newer one) says:

      The letter from the Marmont specifically said they looked forward to welcoming her once the bill was settled, though. They were pretty specific, though it was admittedly emollient spin to accompany the “your arse is banned” message.

  13. Annie says:

    I can’t stand her!!! Worst actress out there. I’m happy she’s on flops only now, co-starring with porn stars instead of proper actors. Enjoy that while you can!!

  14. Gal says:

    I don’t think the Barbara interview will happen. Lindsay will have some excuse why it can’t happen or be afraid of the questions that might be asked.

    • Boo says:

      Agree. Potential excuses include:

      pneumonia (walking, stumbling, or falling down type)

      asthma

      other, unnamed “lung infection”

      stolen passport (I know it’s all domestic. Shhhh)

      stolen purse

      car accident

      stalker

      exhaustion

      dehydration

      constipation

      general bitchiness

      cactus fall

      private plane malfunction

      chin revolt

      • OrangeBlohan says:

        Dr. Phil has to be the blame somehow. yeah, that’s the ticket!! I mean just his presence made Dina appear to be all cracked out and drunk.

      • Boo says:

        Maybe it is a conspiracy waged by Dr. Phil’s little mustache and Barbara’s speech affectation. Both are jealous of Lindsay’s chins’ success and want their own ten minutes of fame.

      • Pamspam says:

        Cactus fall!!! Priceless! You made my morning.

      • Madisyn says:

        LMFAO “CHIN REVOLT” LOVES it Boobs!

    • Bess says:

      I think Barbara Walters will get her interview, but it will be a puff piece. The moment Barbara tries to ask a question that is the least bit probing, Blohan will regurgitate one of her standard dodge answers.

  15. daz says:

    slowlly morphing into a crackie GOLLUM

  16. lucy2 says:

    They should have said hell no, and then sued her for breach of contract if she didn’t promote.
    But I don’t feel sorry for Lifetime, they chose her, they’re stuck with her.

  17. Blue says:

    I can believe it, but there is still something fishy about this story. Why are they even doing promotion for this crap, especially this crap. It’s a LIFETIME movie, starring LINDSAY LOHAN. It’s not that serious. I would have told her ass to kick rocks and see her in court. There is definitely something missing from this story.

  18. Cathy says:

    They wanted her, they got her in all her cracken glory. I don’t feel sorry for lifetime at all. I won’t be watching the movie, I don’t want to waste those minutes of my life. Once those minutes are gone they’re gone. I’m not gonna waste them on watching the crackenmonster.

  19. Jennika says:

    Duh! lol She’s still going to screw up again between now and when the movie comes on. And she probably won’t even do publicity for this movie

  20. CAM says:

    Why would they want her to promote the film? This girl can’t even promote that stupid drink right. You’re holding it wrong Lindsay!! it just looks like she brought her own drink on the red carpet lol

    but seriously. I was the head of that drink company and had pay her thousands to be there and show that damn drink for a photo-op i’d be really pissed she’s holding it wrong and not showing the brand name.

  21. Rex says:

    Too bad she is not holding the drink where you can actually read the label!

  22. G says:

    Obviously, the producers hope and have always hoped to cash in on her train wreck status. It was always intended to be a campy farce of a project.

    No matter what Blohan does, they get their “show.”

  23. sillyone says:

    She is 50 shades of gross, her looks, her personality, her family, anything that she is involved with or touches is a disaster. She is just a horrible nasty human being (if she can even be called human).

    I for one will not be watching Lick and Diz so you CBers will have to give me commentary.

  24. jwoolman says:

    If this is true, Lifetime is pretty stupid. There is no guarantee that Lohan will do the promotion as promised- and if she does, there’s a big chance it will be counterproductive. Good luck getting the money back from her if she blows off Barbara Walters. That old Austrian guy who was stood up by La Lohan a year or so ago, after advancing her about 280K for accompanying him to the annual opera house ball, was still waiting for his money the last I heard.

    LL also has pretty much blown her chances of getting work in any more Lifetime movies. Considering how few her opportunities are – not a smart move.

    It also proves that she’s really broke. That kind of money should have been pocket change for her if she’s really been pulling in the amounts she’s been claiming. She should have been able to whip out a credit card and fix the problem right away.

    • littlestar says:

      I had completely forgotten about her bailing on that European dude!

      Why isn’t he demanding his money back? I just don’t get it – why do people keep letting her get away with basically stealing money? And where’s the tax man already? *sigh*

    • Lady D says:

      Don’t forget blowing off Ellen to do Playboy press. She got her money for the shoot, (probably sold the leaked pics) and never looked back. Think Ellen will have her on again?

  25. Boo says:

    Yep, Linz really screwed herself out of more opportunities at Lifetime. And she was on the fast track to becoming the next Meredith Baxter Birney, too! :D

  26. Bess says:

    It amazes me how the Cracken is able to manipulate Lifetime & the producers of SM5.

    Remember how the Cracken defied the producers and drove herself to the set, even though they provided her with a driver?

    I don’t believe that Lifetime would not have included media promotion as part of the Cracken’s contract. How is she able to force them to pay her Chateau bill??

    As for SM5, in any other industry the Cracken would be blackballed for being insubordinate. In the entertainment biz, Blohan gets rewarded for refusing to show up on set with a private jet.

  27. Annie says:

    She can’t even do something as simple as promoting a soda right – she looks so awkward and forced. I have no idea why anyone would want their product associated with this shipwreck.

    • Annie says:

      So true. People hire this idiot and then bitch about her behavior- hard to believe the stupidity .
      Annie- we have the same name,different person- maybe I’ll change mine to Annie2?

      • Annie says:

        Sorry, there seems to be several Annies and Anne’s on this board! I’m gonna have to change mine to something more creative.

  28. Zigggy says:

    I KNEW she wouldn’t be registered to vote!

  29. Madisyn says:

    I wish Lifetime would have told her to stick that $46,000 dollar bill right up her flat, freckled ass. I would have told her, FINE, you don’t want to promote YOUR own movie for YOUR ‘comeback’, so be it. Why do these people give in to her grifts, threats of blackmail?

    • Bess says:

      Lifetime have been promoting this tv movie like it’s “Gone With The Wind” or “Citizen Cain” since the moment Blohn signed on as Liz. They’ve also decided to put up with her diva antics. Remember the car crash, the paramedics, tantrums and visit from the unions???

      At this point, they should have stood their ground refused to pay her bill.

      • Madisyn says:

        I couldn’t agree more Bess. Imagine what this one lousy, IDIOTIC movie has cost them? The tantrums on set, the driver, her od’ing in her hotel room causing more delays, the trailer payoff for 100,000, this 46,000 bill, her salary. Not to mention Larry Thompson committing career suicide for hiring her in the first place. Honestly, this BITCH!

      • Lady D says:

        I forgot about the union investigation into the work hours on set because of her, her… what was it that time? That was the time she didn’t want to get up to go to work and the studio sent a limo, right? She wouldn’t answer the door or something?

      • Bess says:

        Lady D,

        The union investigation happened after Crackie passed out in her hotel room and gave the excuse that she had worked “80+ hours in 4 days” via twitter.

  30. Riana says:

    Oh I fully believe shed blow off promotion for Lifetime if they didn’t pay the bill. Come on…it’s Lindsey Lohan, God only knows why but this girl still gets magazine covers and interviews. She could easily gush to a camera if she wanted anytime. The fact Lifetime NEEDED her sent off the lightbulb in her head that clicks on whenever there’s an opportunity to manipulate and use someone.

    Thus she wrangled her bill away and will likely give a catastrophe of an interview to Walters anyway.

    • Madisyn says:

      Thats if she bothers to show up. This SLAG has a history of pulling no-shows, (Ellen, anyone? The Austrian who someone mentioned earlier. . .) especially when having been paid up front. I suspect a convenient ‘asthma’ attack coming right around the time for this interview . . .

      • Bess says:

        Very true… The same thing happened when some magazine paid for her + her hangers on to fly to Miami and put her up in a South Beach hotel. The loser never got around to doing the interview that was part of the magazine’s deal. The reporter ended up giving a report on the time she spend hanging around in Crackie’s orbit and it was not pretty.

  31. hillbillyinthecorner says:

    I truly believe this is just another Lohan Inc bullshyt spin to keep her in the media spotlight…..
    Promoting the film would have been writtn in the contract also back why filming Lohan Inc made a big spin out of Barbara Walters visit to the set as a prelude to a set down interview with Lindsay about the comparsions for her child acting career and Liz (which their are None) other then both being child actors…anyway ,,,the interview part did not take place becasuse of Lindsay”hectic schdule” at the time …soo this interview is just Lifetime pinning her down to the contract she signed….and Lohan Inc covering who actually paid the bill which I think the exlover/owner wrote off himself …
    So I am callling Bullshyt on Lohan Inc again…which is a daily thing…

  32. G says:

    I think it’s entirely possible that she’s leveraged some scuttlebut against the producers to get her bill paid.

    Even the stunt casting is going to dry up very soon. I predict she bails on the interview anyway and Walters goes with already shot film and a recap of her past history as troubled starlet.

  33. HappyJoyJoy says:

    Her face is the shape of the moon.

  34. sam1925 says:

    I don’t believe this story. Mostly because of all of the antics before, during, and after filming Lifetime probably regrets casting her. Besides Lindsay loves the attention. I doubt she would hold out not doing interviews.

  35. KittyDuke says:

    STRAIGHT GRIFTER

  36. elina says:

    OMFG her FACE!She looks so awful!

  37. BestFest says:

    Her hair/extensions…atrocious!!

  38. Sugar says:

    I know this is a made for TV movie but does Lindsay? I still expect her to conjure up some kind of “red carpet” preview for her to show up at. Like a special showing on a big screen TV in the bar @ her home the CM.

  39. ViloDeMenus says:

    It’s funny that someone who has paid lots of good money to make herself as unphotogenic as possible is still being hired to work in a visual medium, film. Hilarious! I remember just a couple of years ago, she wasn’t invited to a film opening, the other stars wouldn’t attend if she was there for the premiere, and she was banned. Of course her people made her sick again, the all purpose go to LIE for her, but still you are so hated you don’t even get to go to your films premiere. Lifetime is stupid to be premiering a dumb tv show and she should be embarrassed to even attend that hot mess.

    As for the Marmont, they know what she is, and what they are, they need cash just as much as she does. Bottom feeding old school hollywood-style
