Looks Like Lindsay Won’t Have Any Movie Roles to Distract Her from Her Sobriety

Production of Lindsay Lohan Film Poor Things Cancelled, Lindsay’s Trip to Vegas Blamed

Well, Lindsay, I hope you’re loving sobriety, because it looks like you’ll have plenty of time to focus on it.

La Lohan’s next slated role, in the Shirley MacLaine-starring Poor Things, was supposed to begin filming when she got out of rehab. Production had been halted to give Ms. Lohan some time to get that whole addictive binge drinking thing under control, but it looks like they needn’t have bothered; production’s been shut down entirely.

According to a Page Six source, “Ms. Lohan’s antics in Las Vegas over the weekend have scared the bond companies and all of the funding has been pulled.”

Seriously? What antics? Look, I’m as harsh a Lohan critic as the next blogger, but there was a shocking dearth of antics in Las Vegas. She showed up at PURE. She posed with some Red Bull. She danced. She was being watched like a hawk out there, and there were no antics. If there were antics, they would have been written about right here on this blog, by yours truly. No such antics occurred.

A Lohan friend retorts that:

She had nothing to do with that movie shutting down. It was a mess to begin with. They randomly fired Channing Tatum for Giovanni Ribisi, and then financing fell through because producers spent money like water. It was only supposed to cost $4 million – Lindsay was being paid nothing for that role.

Lindsay is proving to everyone that she is – and will remain – sober by voluntarily wearing the ankle bracelet and taking drug tests. This is not about her work. It’s about her being able to live her life and go out with her friends without people writing nasty items about her.

I very rarely side with any quoted “friend” of Lindsay, but I agree here. It sounds like the production end is trying to blame Lohan for their own financial missteps. Lindsay’s made nothing but responsible decisions since her Memorial Day accident — she checked into rehab, and stayed for longer than the requisite 28 days required before the press will take it seriously, she’s voluntarily wearing an alcohol detection anklet, she turned herself into the police for her Memorial Day antics, and seems generally to be keeping herself out of trouble. I disagree with the assertion that she shouldn’t have been in Vegas — why does sobriety have to be about hiding out in your room between AA meetings? Why shouldn’t she be able to celebrate turning 21 in the same place everyone else does? If Lindsay had gotten fucked up in Vegas, you would have read about it. She didn’t. I think, if anything, she’s setting a positive example right now, and, for now, she’s got my support.

Lohan Turns Herself in for That Whole Drunk Driving “Incident”

Lindsay Lohan Turns Herself in to Police for Memorial Day Weekend Drunk Driving DUI Charge

Less than a week out of rehab, Lindsay Lohan and her new alcohol-detecting ankle bracelet headed down to the Beverly Hills PD to surrender for her Memorial Day weekend DUI.

Accompanied by her attorney, the 21-year-old actress surrendered at the Beverly Hills Police Department Thursday afternoon to be fingerprinted and photographed, Officer Brian Ballieweg said.

Lohan’s blood-alcohol level at the time of the crash was above California’s 0.08 percent legal limit, Ballieweg said. He wouldn’t disclose how high it was. She is also faces a misdemeanor charge of hit and run, he said.

Lohan was released on her recognizance. A court date was scheduled for August 24.

While there have been rumors swirling about Lindsay finding ways to get high even with the bracelet, I have a feeling she’s staying sober. I mean, come on, you guys, she spent an entire weekend in Vegas and we didn’t hear once about her screaming at her assistant or throwing things at the waiter or calling Paris Hilton a cunt on camera. Something’s different this time around. Keep it up, Lindsay!

And August is going to be an exciting month, what with Nicole Richie’s new trial date and Lindsay’s trial!

Lindsay and Samantha Ronson: Together Again?

Samantha Ronson Leaving Les Deux Pictures, Pics, Photos

Lindsay Lohan and BFF/on-and-off lesbian lover Samantha Ronson are wasting no time in celebrating Lindsay’s release from rehab and SamRo’s new, even butcher, haircut. While World War III was kicking off over at Hyde, Lindsay and Samantha were both spotted at Les Deux (the photos are from last night). Lindsay later met up with friends at Mel’s Diner in WeHo. SamRo didn’t appear to make the trip.

Hey, NY Post, Celebslam Doesn’t Have the Naked Pics of Lindsay and They’re Not Threatening to Publish Them

It’s weird when you’re up close and personal with a story and get to see how quickly it can get twisted.

On Friday, July 13, I got this email from Nick, the owner of Celebslam.com and generally a very cool guy:

Sorry about my second email in two days (you know I hardly ever send these out) but I may have something newsworthy…

I caught Lindsay Lohan on Gmail chat this morning (someone hooked me up with her email a few months ago NOT the one that everyone already knows about) where she made the surprise admission that someone may have stolen nude pictures of her taken by ex-fling Calum Best.

Took a screenshot of the conversation: http://www.celebslam.com/lindsays-lohan-cordial-chat

I didn’t run the story because I’m pretty sure Lindsay was pulling this shit out of her ass. I believe Nick had the conversation with Lindsay, but I think she was fucking with him. She knew Nick was a blogger, and she knew this shit would land her in the papers. She was still in rehab, so she was sober when this convo took place, and she’s too smart to hand a blogger this kind of info and then be “shocked” when the info hits the web. I think she’s full of shit.

Today, I read this in the NY post:

Just weeks after sultry shots of Lohan and Vanessa Minnillo goofing around with kitchen knives hit the Web, underground site celebslam.com claims it has its hands on nude photos of Lindsay – and the stalker-ish site is threatening to publish them.

In what Web site owner “Nick” claims to be a G-mail chat between himself and Lohan, the starlet supposedly wrote: “All I know is that someone broke into my computer and left a file on my desktop saying he got the pictures Cal took from me naked.”

Regarding the photos, Lohan’s rep, Leslie Sloane Zelnik, told Page Six, “Anything is possible. I know nothing about it, but her lawyers have been contacted.”

Okay, NY Post, that is sooo not what happened. Celebslam doesn’t have those pics. Celebslam doesn’t know where they are. They probably don’t exist at all. And how hard is it to go to the site, read the article, and get your story straight? The mainstream media is retarded.

Lindsay Does Las Vegas

Lindsay Lohan Partying at Pure in Las Vegas

So I think this means she’s officially out of rehab.

Lindsay Lohan, who is finally 21, popped her Vegas cherry this weekend (hey, it’s the last one she had left!) by hitting up PURE nightclub.

And you know what?

She looks great!

She looks healthy and happy and sexy and clothed and you know what else?

I don’t care what the other blogs are saying. I think the little bitch stayed sober.

Rock on, Linds.

Samantha Ronson Sues over Cocaine Allegations

Samantha Ronson Suing Perez Hilton and Sunset Photo Over Cocaine Allegations

DJ Samantha Ronson, known more lately for what her fingers are doing with Lindsay Lohan than what they’re doing with a turntable, has struck back against two gossip blogs with a $20 million libel suit.

Ronson, herself a budding celebrity deejay, is striking back at suggestions that cocaine found in Lohan’s car after an infamous fender-bender was actually hers.

Named as defendants were Jill Ishkanian, who runs the Sunset Photo and News Agency, and Mario Lavandeira, who blogs as Perez Hilton.

In June, Hilton repeated the cocaine claim that first appeared on CelebrityBabylon.com, a Web site operated by Sunset Photo.

That site claimed Ronson was “making a tidy profit on the side, shilling Lohan, 20, out to photographers eager to get her photo looking passed out and wasted.”

It continued: “If that wasn’t shocking enough, sources say that it was Ronson who was holding the cocaine later found in Lindsay’s car.”

First of all, everyone ran that story. Samantha’s suing Sunset Photo because, for lack of a better phrase, they started it, and because flat-out accusing someone of doing cocaine is an easy way to wind up on the losing end of a libel suit. (And, to clarify, every time the word “cocaine” is used on this blog, you should be aware that it’s our code word for “popsicle.” Inside joke. We know no one in Hollywood would ever use illegal narcotics. Winners don’t do drugs. But they do like popsicles.) She’s suing Perez to get back at him for all the mean shit he runs about Lindsay, because Lord knows after he settles this suit with X17 et al, he’s not going to have a cent to pay her with. She’s just trying to make his life miserable. Which is, you know, fine with me.
