She sent out another one of her crazy-ass drunk/high/whatever emails. From Page Six:
LINDSAY Lohan is preparing to clean up her image and go to war with the media with the help of a high-powered friend – former Vice President Al Gore.
“Al Gore will help me. He came up to me last night and said he would be very happy to have a conversation with me,” Lohan wrote last week in a rambling, semi-literate e-mail to her friends and lawyers.
In the bizarre message read by Page Six, Lohan burbled, “If he is willing to help me, let’s find out. Hilary [sic] Clinton, Bill Clinton, and Evan Metroplis [sic], and John Daur who works with them would be willing, if we just ask. If we just ASK.”
Lohan was apparently inspired to send out the e-mail by a Page Six item on her “mean girls diva fit” at a GQ magazine party in L.A. Referring to a supermarket tabloid report claiming she had overdosed on drugs, she wrote, “Let’s sue the tabloids for saying the things they say. Defamation of character.”
Invoking what she puzzlingly calls the “way of the future-Howard Hughes,” her desire is to “release a politically/morally correct, fully adequite [sic] letter to the press.”
Lohan says she wants to state her opinions on “how our society should be educated for the better of our country. Our people . . . because I have such an impact on our younger generations, as well as generations older than me. Which we all know and can obviously see.”
Lohan then mentions taking a mystery person she refers to as “LR” to court for “what she’s done to me.
“It’s my life. I want to live it. People cannot lie and think that it is okay to continue on having done so. I have had many ups and downs, as do we all. But to make false accusations to one girl is unjust in my opinion. I am willing to do anything I need to get my life the way it should be.”
Lohan said she wanted to “hold a press conference” and “will do anything necessary to do so.” She said she is at “such a young and tender age in a woman’s life. It’s enough already, I’ve had enough and I am going to be the one to make a change.”
Lohan’s representative, Leslie Sloane Zelnik, had no comment.
Perez thinks the “LR” refers to Lindsay Ratowski, LiLo’s former assistant. They did not part on good terms. I believe Ratowski is now Jessica Biel’s assistant, and Lohan threw some sort of fit a couple of weeks ago when she ran into Ratowski with Biel at a party (that may be the GQ item in question).
Poor Leslie Sloane Zelnick. I’m sure it really sucks to get out of bed on days like this.
Update: Defamer has the full text of the email.
During an interview on KIIS FM this morning with Ryan Seacrest, Dina Lohan — Lindsay’s mom — was asked if Lindsay was, in fact, attending AA meetings. Dina replied, “That is true.” She says a lot of the people Lindsay spends time with are in the program, and that “it’s positive.”
Lindsay may be attending meetings, but it’s hard to believe she’s staying sober, because we’re still hearing stories about her drunken, diva-ish behavior each day, like this morning’s most recent one out of Page Six. Lindsay reportedly went on a rampage against her former assistant at a GQ party, screaming, “If she stays, I’m outta here! I can’t look at that girl! I can’t believe you would allow an assistant in here – she doesn’t belong in here!” Perhaps Lindsay realized she was in over her head, because she called ex-boyfriend Harry Morton, who promptly came to retrieve her.
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.
Okay, I’ll bite, an explanation for why good ol’ Linday is care free when it comes to her naughty bits. Quoth the LL:
“I don’t want to put myself in the position where I’m in a monogamous relationship right now. I’m not dating just one person. Sex and the City changed everything for me because those girls would sleep with so many people.”
Huh. I guess we can all be glad for entertainment’s sake that she didn’t watch Jeopardy growing up.
Still, I look at that photo and remember fondly the days when I found fire bottom to be super foxy. I want those days back. I want my innocence back.
