Lindsay Lohan: secret celebrity hoarder


Lindsay Lohan will appear on The Insider tonight to have some kind of heart to heart with Niecy Nash. All that’s available of the upcoming interview is a brief clip in which Lindsay talks about keeping an emotional distance from her dad and having trouble organizing her stuff. They show Lindsay’s messy home and ask “is Lindsay a celebrity hoarder?” Her place is a wreck for sure, and a dramatic voice-over lets us know that it’s her living room, not a storage room, that is filled with clutter. She also has a whole room just for shoes, but at least they’re stored in clear boxes with photos. Lindsay says “I just need to get rid of stuff… that’s personal stuff that I need to work on.”

Niecy is also the host of the Style Network show “Clean House,” for which Lindsay is definitely a candidate. The way the show works is that Niecy and her gang will go into a messy home, convince people to sell off stuff they don’t need, and then match the proceeds from a yard sale to revamp about three rooms of the house. All of the work is done while the homeowners are away at a hotel and at the end they come back to be wowed by their gorgeously redecorated and organized space.

Niecy is the person who gives the candidates pep talks and helps them prepare for a new, cleaner phase of their lives. The show really doesn’t do much emotional work with participants as far as I can tell, though. All they do is talk to them a little, reorganize the home for them while they’re away and convince them to ditch the clutter. I get the feeling that the people on “Clean House” just mess up the place again after the crew leaves. Some of them are definite hoarders that probably aren’t going to change their ways in a weekend. It’s different from a show like “Mission: Organization” on HGTV that does a lot of emotional work with people and works with them to develop a system that they’ll use. (I love those organization shows and have learned so many tips!)

In Lindsay’s case I can see Niecy and her team lending a hand and cleaning up her home, only to have all the work ruined again when she throws her designer swag all over in a drugged haze. In order to have a clean home you have to keep it up and be motivated. A brief chat for a celebrity show isn’t going to help Lohan change her ways. When cops responded to a burglary call at her home last year, her place was so messy that they assumed it was ransacked. Is Niecy going to help Lindsay organize and is that why she’s on the show? I realize it’s the Insider, not Clean House, but I can see Lindsay reaching out to Niecy to help. If she gets some press out of it.

    this twat will do ANYTHING for attention. will she never go away? ever?

  2. Lady Nightshade says:

    Being messy because you are too high and too lazy to clean is not the same as being a hoarder.

  3. Praise St. Angie! says:

    I am floored at how many pairs of shoes she owns.

    I think she’s got addiction problems out the wazooo…alcohol, drugs, shopping, hoarding, etc…I think girl does everything to the extreme.

  4. Len says:

    I get so tired just looking at her. And these are her young years being wasted away. She’ll never have them back.

  5. Roma says:

    I love Mission: Organization! Lindsay just has no respect for herself or for her belongings… which breaks my heart, because she doesn’t deserve to have the designer clothing and shoes that she has. They deserve to go to a good home, like mine.

  6. Bodhi says:

    WHOA! That is INSANE! As if we needed more proof that LL is in serious need of therapy… My God that is a ton of, of, junk.

    Oh & I also love Mission Organization! Speaking of which… I still have boxes to unpack from moving in Spetember… boooo

  7. bella says:

    Linds looks demon possessed or drugged or both in that top photo.

  8. lucy2 says:

    I think she’s just a lazy slob who doesn’t care about anything but her next high, so that’s quite different than a true hoarder.

    I’ve watched many episodes of Clean House, and a good number of the people stay neater, but there have been a few who don’t. There have also been a few who had serious psychological problems and needed more help than that show could offer. Lindsay needs more help than all the shows on TV combined could offer.

    Just looking at the video it’s really sad to see how much free designer stuff that idiot has accumulated. The only thing she seems to care about are shoes, but I bet someone else organized all of that for her. I’d also like to know how she still affords a house.

    Leni, you said it best.

  10. snowball says:

    Is it entirely out of the realm of possibilities that LiLo is more than a little OCD?

    OCD isn’t just about cleaning, nor just about hoarding. It can also be about an inability to organize and decide what’s trash and what isn’t.

    I’m OCD and used to be a minor hoarder. My issue wasn’t with everything being filty and piled to the ceiling, it was about starting to clean (my method is always to clean room to room, dumping everything I don’t know where it belongs in the dining room to be sorted) and not having the focus to finish.

    LiLo may just be a coked out slob on a celebrity death watch, but there are such things as hoarders who have sorting and cleaning issues. It doesn’t mean one of her myriad issues can’t be OCD.

  11. meme says:

    i think it’s a PR stunt.

  12. poodiver says:

    god is she pathetic

  13. JoeComment says:

    I’ll go with the lazy & drugged out theory. I would be surprised if she baths on a daily basis.

    Choooooooo Chooooooooooo…CRASH!!!

    Train Wreck!

  14. buenavissta says:

    Lindsay Lohan, secret fame hoarder. Sounds like a bid to get some press. As someone said on HuffPost, that’s one syllable too many.

  15. Bodhi says:

    Another thing… When was this recorded? Her lips are so swollen she can barely talk & her hair is alot lighter than in recent pictures

  16. QB says:

    Lindsay is not a hoarder , she just downsized and now does not have the space to shove all of that shit. Look at her shoe closet is so organize and clean, the hoarders I have seen are not that organize or clean.

    The mess in her living room is probably dirty clothes , she probably use to be same before and a assitant or maid pick it up for her later but maybe now that she does not have people doing that she haves realize stuff do not magically dissapears and get clean.

  17. lucy2 says:

    Good point QB. She probably had maids or assistants doing everything for her for many years, and now probably can’t afford it, or is such a nightmare no one wants to work for her.

  18. TaylorB says:

    Lilo better be careful what she asks for, if Clean House comes over and sorts through all her stuff they might stumble over all that jewelry she “hoarded” as well.

  19. Carrie Thompson says:

    I think it’s a combo of laziness, drug haze, and a severe size downgrade- she could take care of some of her money woes by selling some of that stuff on etsy or ebay.
    I’ll bet money that she can’t afford a housekeeper anymore.

  20. snapdragon says:

    yikes – that top photo is going to give me nightmares! as for the hoarding i’m also going with the too tweaked, spoiled and lazy explanation.

  21. Viggo says:

    Is being a hoarder the worst of lindsay’s
    problems? As you’ve said there are emotional and substance abuse problems there, and the “hoarding” is just a bi-product. This looks like a feeble attempt at getting a paycheck and attention. This situation looks a lot less severe than other hoarding cases that have been presented on television.At least her things are organized in storage bins. My hope is that they get to the real root of all this… that being her drug addiction, but that’s just wishful thinking on my part.

  22. Ruby Red Lips says:

    I’m more concerned about the huge bags under her eyes that are visible even with all the make-up…I agree with poster above who said she will never get her early years back

    She obv has an addictive personality, but I agree that its the downsizing and the lack of maids which is why the place is such a mess

    Girl needs to stop shopping pronto!

  23. Tia C says:

    @ Roma: I’m with you! All her swag, clothes, shoes, etc. should be re-distributed to deserving souls like us, LOL!

  24. Camille says:

    Poor girl, she’s obviously very messed up and needs help. I’m glad that I am not her.

    One positive thing about these awful pictures of her- at least she seems to have given up that awful orange fake tan look which is why she looks so ghastly pale and drawn looking.

  25. MYOB says:

    All because she had nothing growing up.

  26. Courtney says:

    I am so jealous of the shoes. I would sacrifice my bedroom for that many shoes.

  27. MsTriste says:

    I’ve watched Niecy in plenty of Clean House episodes, and she does not suffer fools gladly. I think I’ll watch this, just to see how she is with LL. Thanks for the heads-up!

  28. Madisyn says:

    I’m with the others that said no money, no maid, no assistants, no clean rooms!

  29. la chica says:

    she is not a hoarder. she is a wasteful spending fool who doesn’t have a place large enough to hold the stuff she buys. hence Lohan House.
