Lindsay Lohan is like, so not a fan of rehab. She’s like Goldilocks with them, too. Except instead of worrying about porridge temperatures and bed sizes, her main concerns are which rehab facilities will let her use adderall and smoke cigarettes. And she’s determined to find one that’s just right. So far, she’s been able to go rehab hopping to heart’s content, because for whatever reason, the judge keeps allowing it. I guess anything to keep her off the streets.
From ABC News:
Lindsay Lohan has checked out of the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif., according to her lawyer, after beginning her court-mandated, three-month rehab stint at the facility last month.
“Lindsay is grateful for the treatment she received at the Betty Ford Center,” her lawyer, Shawn Holley, told ABC News in a prepared statement. “She has completed her course of treatment there and looks forward to continuing her treatment and building on the foundation established at Betty Ford.”
To complete her mandatory rehab sentence, Lohan has reportedly checked into another rehab facility in Malibu, Calif., a source told People magazine, that is “better suited for long-term care.”
Let me make a wild guess on the facility: Promises? I’d bet on it.
Yeah, this was not the original plan, but I guess if everyone’s okay with it, I have no reason not to be. Michael Lohan‘s probably not okay with it though, since he was rooting for her to go to Palm Springs.

Lindsay Lohan is doing really well in rehab, which is great but isn’t exactly a career boost. A career boost would be if she got a prime big budget movie role (for a change) in a huge film everyone would see. And Lohan thinks that film is Fifty Shades Of Grey. If any of this is at all true. I think we’ve been hearing rumors about this since April, and Lohan’s never confirmed nor denied this desire.
From Naughty But Nice Rob:
Lindsay Lohan is still completing her court-ordered rehab. But after she emerges from the 90-day program, Lindsay is planning a major comeback.
“She is going to clear house. She wants rid of all the bad influencs in her life and she plans to throw herself into work,” a friend of the actress tells Naughty But Nice Rob. “She has changed, she really has changed and wants to prove it.”
The actress, who famously said she would have an Oscar one day, just might. The project that Lindsay is now pursuing is the lead in ’Fifty Shades of Grey.’
“Lindsay needs a big high profile role. She needs to be part of a movie everyone wants to see and thinks ‘Fifty’ is a role she would be perfect for,” adds one friend. “She has read the book several times and knows this is a character that she can play. She wants to be part of something iconic, something that will live forever like Harry Potter or The Hunger Games. Now, she thinks she has found it.”
What is up with everyone wanting a piece of this movie? It’s basically porn, right? I’ve never read the book, but it’s poorly written porn, isn’t it? So how would the movie be anything but a disaster and why would Lohan think it would help her?
It seems like a character [Christian Grey] I could have a lot of fun with. I’ve heard really mixed responses about it, like, ‘Oh, it’s a cheesy Twilight wannabe… [but] I think it could be fun. I feel like it could be a really cool, fun role to work on. [But] As I understand, the rumors [for Christian] are some guy who’s on a TV show on USA [Matt Bomer], some model dudes, and Ryan Gosling.
At least he knows his place.

Lindsay Lohan is in rehab at The Betty Ford Center where she’s been working on healing and also being an unofficial spokesperson for a singing app, and probably snickering at Amanda Bynes‘ twitter feed. Class act father Michael Lohan is really proud of her and says she is doing “phenomenal” — yet he wants to move her to a different location. From The Daily Mail:
Its just enough is enough and I think she realises it. In everyone’s life there comes an epiphany and I guess it’s come upon her in some way shape or form. It’s time and I think she knows that.
She’s doing phenomenal, I mean awesome.
Okay…then why move her? Mr. Lohan says he wants her to go to Lukens Institute in Palm Springs, and he claims she does, too.
…There’s a lot of healing going on, this is only the beginning of the process and she has 60 more days. She did say at the beginning of the month that she wants to leave and go to Lukens, and as a matter of fact one or two other people want to go as well. So I’m going to go and I’m going to meet with [her lawyer] Shawn Holley this week and hopefully talk to the city attorney and get her transferred.
They [The Betty Ford Center] don’t get any trauma therapy here, they do no one-on-one whatsoever, they’re giving some of the people in here frigging medication, I mean Valium and other narcotic medication. You don’t do that in a rehab. I just don’t get it.
The hell is he talking about? Does he know they took away her adderall? I don’t think anyone is giving your daughter Valium, Mr. Lohan. This f-cking family. Why do I get the feeling that he wants her here because for whatever reason it’s more convenient for him?

Good to know that Lohan took some time out of her day to reflect on her journey and self improvement via twitter. Really, it wasn’t totally a bad thing. Here’s the tweet:
A little cheesy, but okay. But see that link there? And how it says “view app”? Here’s what you see when you click on that:
Like what the hell is this, Lohan? What is the connection here? With this app, you TOO can sing “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” while thinking about the opportunities you fucked up in your life? I DON’T GET IT.
Wait actually this app looks kind of cool. It seems it’s like mini karaoke you have with you at all times. Still, none of this makes sense to me. Does she know someone who created the app? Did she tweet it as a favor? Is someone paying her? I’m just trying to understand the connections here. I did some research because I don’t have a life, and found this from Business Insider from the month of April:
Alec Andronikov, 29, has started and sold two companies, and he may have another hit on his hands. That’s if Lindsay Lohan has it her way.
Since April 4, about 70,000 people have downloaded Just Sing It and 400,000 recordings have been made. The app owes much of its quick growth to actress Lindsay Lohan who came across the app and tweeted its praises [...] Andronikov says his team didn’t pay for the endorsement, but now that they know she’s likes the app, they’re working with her team to “make the most of her being a fan.” Lohan has now tweeted seven times about Just Sing It, asking her 6 million followers to join in.
Okay so apparently she’s not being paid, but this still seems very off. It’s gotta be a favor.
Isn’t rehab great?

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.
