It’s possible we bloggers might have to find someone else to fill our column inches in the near future, as Page Six reports that Lindsay Lohan has begun attending AA meetings. This should come as a surprise to no one, as Lindsay’s former boyfriend, Harry Morton, is sober, and she was spotted wearing a 90-day sobriety chip at the Ivy, and, most recently, issued a statement on the death of Robert Altman littered with AA jargon.
According to Page Six, a “spy” reported seeing her yesterday at an early morning AA meeting near her apartment. As a gossip blogger, I love this, but as a person, I think this “spy” is a total asshole. Lindsay should have the opportunity to get sober anonymously, just like anyone else in a 12-step program, and it’s heartbreaking that she was betrayed by someone from a meeting. (Yeah, I know, that’s not stopping me from running this article). A Lohan friend confirmed: “She has attended several meetings and has hopefully decided to turn her life around – this time for good. She is out of control.”
I’m excited for Lindsay that all the Courtney Love chanting is paying off, and I truly hope she can manage to get herself clean and sober, and get her life back on track. We gossip bloggers don’t really need her anymore, now that we have Britney Spears on the scene.
