Word on the street is that Lindsay’s gotten rid of her #1 enabler: mom/manager Dina Lohan.
OK! magazine — which seems to have the monopoly on all things Lindsay these days — is reporting that the rehabbed starlet is cleaning up her life, starting close to home.
â€œLindsay fired Dina as her manager,â€ an insider revealed. â€œShe is livid about all this press her mom is doing on this NYC apartment that sheâ€™ll never even live in; Dina even gave Access Hollywood a tour of the apartment two nights ago … The two havenâ€™t even spoken in weeks except to fight.â€
As Lindsay struggled with addiction the past few years, her mom has always been on the front lines, denying that Lindsay has a problem. She’s also been rumored to have engaged in drug use with her daughter.
So who will represent Lindsay now?
Hopefully not her dad!
Oh, Lindsay, Lindsay, Lindsay!!!
We were soooooooooooooooo sick of Britney.
It’s all Lindsay all the time now!!!! Is everyone soooooooooo excited to see what Britney does to get the attention back on her? What will she think of this time???
Oh and Linds has a new boyfriend, who she met in rehab. He’s a 25-year-old snowboarder named Riley Giles. (With a name like Riley Giles, you pretty much have to be a snowboarder, right?)
Jump in to read the whole interview.
The full interview won’t be out until Thursday, but OK! has posted some of the quotes they got from Lindsay in their exclusive post-rehab interview.
“I’m going back [to LA] to shoot Dare to Love Me, but I plan on returning to Utah so I can stay focused and avoid other distractions,” she says. “Tempation is always there, but now I’ll avoid it the right way.”
And: “I hit rock bottom. Everything in my life came to a point where I had to make a decision.”
And lastly: “My talent is a gift and I’m going to use it.”
Okay, Linds. There it is, in black and white. You admit you have a problem. You say you’re going back to Utah after filming wraps. Now let’s see you follow through on that.
Director Brett Ratner, who’s currently making a film about Hugh Hefner’s life, when asked if he’d cast Lindsay Lohan: “She’s very talented; she’d be great a as a Playboy bunny, if she stayed sober.”
Brett and Lindsay dated briefly in 2006, when Lindsay was 20 and Brett was 37.
Director Brett Ratner, when asked what advice he’d give to Britney Spears: â€œI wouldn’t. I don’t want to be quoted about Britney.â€
Oh, silly Brett. Everyone has to get quoted about Britney this month. It’s a union requirement. Didn’t you get the memo? Or did someone forget to mail it in the vagina of an 18-year-old girl?
I love it when we get new shots of Lindsay at the Cirque Lodge (where Richie Sambora joined her this weekend) because I’m just so happy that she’s still at the Cirque Lodge. Maybe — just maybe — this girl is actually going to get her shit together for real.
And I’m in no rush to have her back out partying anymore. Between OJ and Britney, I’m plenty busy. And by the time Britney actually manages to take her mental health seriously and check into rehab for real, I’m confident Hayden Panettiere will be drunk and half-naked all around L.A. Ah, the circle of life.
I don’t know how I missed this, but I guess some kid who just got out of Lindsay’s rehab in Utah was supposedly banging her in there. But he denies it.
“That is against the rules,” he says. “She is my friend.”
Lindsay — whose reps say she will stay in the rehab for “the foreseeable future” — is “very focused on recovery right now,” he says.
Get healthy Lindsay!!!
And it seems like, now that Michael Lohan actually got to see the daughter he’s been fighting to see for so long, he might actually shut up for a little while.
It was a sad day for the manufacturers of Grey Goose, as the alcoholic father-daughter combo had an emotional reunion in the parking lot of Lindsay’s rehab. “The moment Lindsay saw Michael, she started running and jumped into her father’s arms,” says an eyewitness. “Her father hugged her and swung her around. Lindsay was so happy. It was very emotional.”
The two haven’t seen each other in nearly three years. Daddy spent two years in prison, and has fought to see his daughter ever since his release.
When asked for comment, Michael, who normally can’t shut the fuck up, said: “I can’t comment on my relationship with my daughter. But [the reunion] was amazing.”
Jesus Christ, maybe these people are finally approaching normalcy.
That would be bad for business.
Hopefully they’ll change their minds about sobriety and hit the Park City bar scene together! Now that’s father-daughter bonding!
Nah, I can’t even say that jokingly. I’m rooting for these two. I hope Lindsay gets healthy and gets whatever serenity she’s been searching for throughout these years, and hopefully a relationship with a sober father will help.
