Stephen and Danny Baldwin try to save Lindsay Lohan

Daniel Baldwin

Lindsay Lohan isn’t going into rehab again – but she is going into a “therapeutic environment.” Which could mean any number of things. Two of the Baldwin brothers – Danny and Stephen – are organizing it, though it’s unclear exactly what this all means.

After a whirlwind weekend in the media spotlight in response to a warrant (which was later dropped) being issued for her arrest, Tarts has been told that Lindsay Lohan is seeking professional guidance to put her back on a positive path. According to an inside source close to the Lohan family, the troubled 22-year-old will temporarily be in a “therapeutic environment” organized by fellow actors, Stephen and Danny Baldwin.

“Lindsay is still able to go to work and meetings and do normal things,” said our insider. “But she wants to remove the negative influences in her life.”

Reformed rehabber himself Daniel Baldwin is devoting a great deal of time and energy into making sure the young starlet doesn’t fall back into her wild ways. “Lindsay’s doing great, her sobriety is the most important thing to her,” Baldwin told Tarts in an exclusive statement on Wednesday. “She is taking all the necessary measures and actions for her continued health.”

A rep for Lohan confirmed that she is not in rehabilitation but did not respond for any further comment. Lindsay’s father, Michael Lohan, declined to elaborate on his daughter’s immediate plans but said Lindsay is committed to improving her quality of life. “Lindsay will disclose where she is staying and what she is doing when she is ready,” he said, adding that he intends to come to Los Angeles this week to offer his daughter support and guidance.

This sounds like some version of a halfway house or sober living community. Daniel Baldwin was on “Celebrity Rehab,” and frankly he annoyed me. He was always acting like the savior, but it seemed like he was just doing it to get attention and praise. The fact that he’s rushing in to help Lohan – and chat about it in “exclusive statements,” makes me worry that this is more about fuelling his own ego than helping Lindsay. And I’m not even going to bother going into the obvious disaster that is Michael Lohan.

I’m glad Lindsay is doing something though. I wish it were a little more private. And I’m hoping that Daniel and Stephen Baldwin are just supporting her, not actually organizing the entire thing. There should be professionals behind it. Nonetheless, I’m glad she’s taking some kind of action.

    oh good god you know you’re in trouble when you turn to a Baldwin for help. Daniel, makes my skin crawl, I’m sure he’s just looking to get into Lindsey’s leggins.
    Have you heard the way they all talk to people, I don’t think a Baldwin would know a “therapeutic environment” if it crawled up their bum. I’m sure that is a family, much like La Lohan’s, where the dysfunction runs multiple generations deep

    “her sobriety is the most important thing to her”


    oohhh, my ribs.

    I agree. There should be professionals involved. Even though most people have given up on Lohan, I still hope she will reach her bottom and survive to get her life back together. Unlike Paris, The Blonde Coat Hanger Hilton, Lindsey has REAL talent. When she first moved to LA, most people probably knew it was mistake. Hopefully she will find a REAL SUPPORTIVE surrogate family that offers her genuine support; it is clear her family of orgin is incapable of giving this because they don’t know what it is either.
    When the rumors were flying around about Lohan and Sean Penn it made me sick that an older man would take advantage of her. Yes, she needs to learn a lot of lessons including good manners and she needs to drop her innate sense of entitlement; but Lohan is young and there is still some hope for her IF she can get away from the user cess pool that is Hollywood!

    Um shouldn’t they help themselves first or get help themselves?????????? Oh oh oh.. ok need to stop laughing…

  5. Ron says:

    yikes! Stephen Baldwin is going to take her to Jesus Camp for sure! This reminds me of that movie, “But I’m a Cheerleader” just subsititue “Celebrity” for Cheerleader.

  6. yadira says:

    She looks really pretty in that header pic. The Baldwins all look alike. Scummy and arrogant

  7. Feebee says:

    aaaaaannd Danny and Stevo are doing this because……. they are the talentess half of the Baldwin quartet and need the publicity of taking Hollywood’s currently most prolific screw up (for her age anyway) and “helping her”.

    Good grief, do you think Daddy Spears might be interested in expanding his conservator stable?

  8. Orangejulius says:

    I can’t believe I actually watched ‘Celebrity Rehab’, but I’d have to concur that Daniel Baldwin didn’t come off too well. His dashing off to his wife after making a pass at one of his fellow rehab patients didn’t help matters.

  9. JLO FROM DA BLOCK says:

    leave lindsay alone already

  10. OXA says:

    Is this a joke?

  11. Chiara says:

    I’d agree with you on the need for professionals.

    These two clowns have what to offer? One has been through rehab 9 times, and the other has a Bible in hand.

    Neither can offer a medical/therapeutic approach.

  12. anon says:

    3 of long island’s finest…

  13. Claire says:

    Is this a joke – absolutely…this is her idiot father again…and since when is fox news pop tarts known for it’s authenticity….The Judge has stated Lindsay is complying with all aspects of her probation – she doesn’t need any help from her father or his wild ass friends!!

  14. Codzilla says:

    anon: Indeed, lol.

  15. McDooks says:

    Oh, boy- a trio of has-beens trying to be relevant. If their motives are pure, best of luck because the Baldwins are a bunch of idiots. If their motives are just to ride her pathetic coattails then they are obviously more hard up than her washed up ass.

  16. Rougelatete says:

    Michael Lohan is a tool. I bet he doesn’t even have a clue where Linds is but he’s speaking out his as$ about her proposed rehab plans just so he can…..wait for it, folks…..remain in the spotlight.

    We care if gays have kids but we don’t care if this attention-whore does? Our society is f***cked.

  17. Elanenergy says:

    He annoyed me on Celebrity Rehab because it appears that he has an untreated sex addiction—just what Lindsey needs. aarg

  18. Yae says:

    Wouldnt all our lives be grand if everytime we screwed up, and our “environment” got bad we could get a team of experts, counselors, and massage therapists who rushed into battle to make it all go away? Well she has a Baldwin tick on her foot. He’ll drop when he’s full of blood and she’ll hardly notice. It’s Hollywood.

  19. Michele says:

    Trash, trash, and more trash. All of ’em.

  20. Aspen says:

    Being a Christian doesn’t automatically make you a nutbag with nothing to offer. Neither does being a religious person of any other persuasion.

    What bothers me about the scenario is the exploitative nature of it.

    Until she goes into rehab with cameras, statements, and D-listers “helping” her…it’s all just another act in the play. There’s nothing helpful going on in all this.

    But seriously…Stephen Baldwin isn’t trash because he’s a faithful follower of his religion. I’m so sick of that crap. Whatever his personality and character flaws, they have nothing to do with his enthusiastic Christian bent.

    There ARE people who use the Christian faith as a weapon…but most people don’t. Most people use their Christianity in productive ways, and that can be said for pretty much every religion.

  21. Aspen says:

    without cameras, statements, etc.–not with.

    Sorry about that.

  22. SixxKitty says:

    The blind leading the blind…

  23. GimmeABreak says:

    @Ggirl: Lindsay has real talent? Since WHEN?

  24. Jazz says:

    That’s like Dracula being in charge of a blood bank.

  25. boomchakaboom says:

    I thought Warren Beatty was going to save her. What happened there? Was it too low-key and real for the dramatized Lilo?

    This is just ick.

  26. cheekemunkey says:

    Rehab. Ha! Talk about delusional!

    Speaking of delusional, DListed posted an advert that LiLo did which should gain her instant access to any rehab facility… Great actress! NOT.

  27. the original kate says:

    i’m sure the baldwins are interested in “helping” lindsay. with a sex tape.

  28. Ross says:

    Stephen is walking the walk of his belief system, unlike other who just stand by and point the finger. Lohan comes from a Christian background and I assure you, she will see the error of her ways and return to her Father’s open arms…I declare in the name of Jesus ! Amen
