Considering that Lindsay Lohan was a pretty prominent figure in Hollywood from an early age and Saoirse Ronan is really only coming into her own as an actress that we respect but don’t actually know all that well, it’s a bit of a stretch, but I don’t know this girl and I think she’s talented, so let’s give her the benefit of the doubt, shall we?
Showbiz is full of enablers and pushers who will basically get your ass into all kinds of trouble if you happen to be so inclined, vaguely suggestable or a minor with a parent who cares more about your money or your well-being, so it’s very lucky for Saoirse that she didn’t go down the same path as Lindsay.
From Time Out London (via DS):
“I could have ended up like Lindsay Lohan,” Ronan told Time Out London.
“You’re being offered all these different temptations… and everyone is either telling you how great you are or talking about you behind your back.”
She added: “Lindsay Lohan was the It girl from, like, 14. That’s a lot of pressure.
“If you don’t have your mam telling you, ‘Remember, you’re still my daughter’, you’re going to go off the rails.”
True, true. I feel that. On a side note, how good does Byzantium look? I’m down.

Lindsay Lohan can’t catch a break. They took her freedom and they took her Adderall, and now they want to take what little money she’s got left, too. You see, she’s being sued for $5 million by the company that released her line of leggings, who claim that her “drug-addled image” caused low sales. Uh, you do realise that you signed a deal with LINDSAY LOHAN, right? This wasn’t Taylor Swift’s legging line and Lindsay just showed up the day of the shoot. What the hell is wrong with people?
From E! Online:
An apparel manufacturer that partnered with Lohan’s leggings line 6126 is firing back at the actress’ 2013 lawsuit over a licensing dispute, claiming that the embattled star’s tarnished reputation severely hampered the company’s ability to suitably peddle her clothing line to buyers.
In a $5 million breach-of-contract counter claim filed against Lohan Friday in a California U.S. District Court and obtained by E! News, clothing company DNAM alleges that while the starlet’s leggings line initially enjoyed some success at department stores in 2010, buyers eventually began to pull back “because they did not want to be associated with Lohan’s drug addled image.”
The complaint states that in the spring of 2011, buyers canceled appointments and customers canceled orders, noting that “no one would touch the line.” Lohan, who was in rehab at the time, was unable to endorse the brand or provide feedback, the lawsuit alleges.
The company claims that Lohan’s legal troubles and her supposed drug and alcohol addictions devalued the brand, and it its seeking $5 million in damages.
I just… don’t get what’s wrong with people. Newsflash: If you enter a legal agreement to produce and sell Lindsay Lohan’s clothing, you’d better be prepared for people who don’t like Lindsay Lohan not to buy it and for sales to suffer because of it. It’s not like her popularity JUST took a nosedive (and in fact it’s not her popularity that’s waned, it’s her reputation/respectability), so these people need to STFU.

Lindsay Lohan is really not having a very good
month everything. And now we can add this mix of awkward and OMG and LOL to her pile of woes. Though I think it’s time to leave Lohan alone in the sense of, let’s not criticize her hair while she’s in rehab, I don’t disagree with the statement on this shirt, worn by Jonathan Bennett who played Aaron Samuels in Mean Girls. He was the one who was Regina George’s ex and then Lohan’s character liked him so all kinds of wacky hijinks ensued.
Anyway Mr. “Doesn’t Aaron Look Sexy With His Hair Pushed Back?” found this tee in a store in LA, took a pic, and posted it on Facebook. Then my guess is his publicist freaked out or Lohan fans got real mad, so he told Yahoo (via Zimbio),
I tried on the T-shirt ironically to point out the ridiculousness of the public and media obsession with her. I actually am really happy she’s in rehab and seems to be doing well. She was one of the most talented young actresses I have ever worked with. I just want her to get better. It makes me sad to think about that spark and that brightness that is inside her that’s been covered by her addictions. … I’m here for her. She’ll be back and she’s gonna be big. Just you watch.
LOL NICE SAVE NOT BUYING IT.

Lindsay Lohan is “safely ensconced” in rehab at long last. She’s been annoying the hell out of all of us with her rehab hopping but now that she’s in one, it may be time to leave her alone. She’s now getting criticized for how she handles withdrawal in a rehab center. From Radaronline:
The actress looks extremely haggard, her face is bloated, and it doesn’t look like she has brushed her hair in days. She looks very disheveled and has absolutely no energy since docs took away the Adderall.
I mean, come ON, she’s in rehab, she doesn’t have to look red carpet ready. And even if Lohan was abusing Adderall, withdrawal still sucks. For the record, she claims she legitimately needed it, telling Piers Morgan,
I have severe ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder). I can’t stand still. So I take Adderall (a prescription drug) for that, it calms me. I know people who take it to stay up, or girls who take it to supposedly stay slim because it kills your appetite. But I eat all the time. I just take it to stay calm. It works well for me.
I don’t know. I guess i’m just starting to feel like it’s time to let her be, at least until she tries to escape again.

Lohan’s really been pressing her luck in rehab switching. She’s finally at a place that a judge approved of, even though it wasn’t in her original plea bargain. But, as always, Lohan is ready to run. Her excuse this time is that The Betty Ford Center wants to take away her Adderall.
Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ … doctors at the rehab center evaluated Lindsay this week and decided she does NOT need her Addy pills, despite Lindsay’s claims she suffers from ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder).?
We’re told Betty Ford’s doctors almost NEVER give anyone over the age of 15 the powerful drug, because the docs believe there are plenty of substitute meds for ADHD that do the trick without the addictive qualities inherent in the drug. And, we’re told, the doctors are well aware many people — especially Hollywood types — misuse Adderall as a weight-control drug.
Here’s the immediate problem … Lindsay is telling her friends she CANNOT stay at Betty Ford and wants to be moved to another facility that is not hard-nosed about Adderall.
And this sets up yet another crisis, because it seems inconceivable Judge Jim Dabney and prosecutors would ignore the Betty Ford doctors and trump their diagnosis by letting Lindsay make a move.
Bitch just sit down with Brooke Mueller and get over it. If you actually needed Adderall there’s no way in hell they would take it from you. Not worth the liability. I’m guessing that your train of glory and luck has hit its last station, and you’re upset and ever-so-uncomfortable at rehab. She is BEGGING to be jailed. Why won’t anyone do it??
P.S. To everyone everywhere, STOP ABUSING ADDERALL. If you don’t need it, don’t use it. You make it harder for everyone else. THE END.

Charlie Sheen really knows how to bring people together. His ex wife, Brooke Mueller, was recently admitted to The Betty Ford Center. That happens to be where Lindsay Lohan is staying for her mandatory rehabbing. Coincidence?
Apparently Lohan’s already run into Mueller, and no, it wasn’t with her car. Good job, Lohan! You’re getting better already.
Lindsay Lohan could be getting support from someone who has done cocaine waaaay more than 4 or 5 times … ’cause Brooke Mueller’s in the house!
Sources familiar with cocaine tell TMZ … Brooke and Lindsay are currently staying in the hospital wing at The Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage. In fact we’re told they’ve already run into each other and exchanged pleasantries … not drugs.
I think the most amazing thing about all of this is that Charlie Sheen isn’t in there with him. How is Charlie Sheen not in jail or in rehab right now? How does he get through everything unscathed? And not just unscathed, but celebrated?
