“I just left an AA meeting,” she told People magazine. “I haven’t had a drink in seven days. Or anything.”
“I’ve been going to AA for a year by the way,” she added. “I’m not even legal to, so why would I? I don’t drink when I go to clubs. [Ed: Yeah, right] I drink with my friends at home, but there’s no need to. I feel better not drinking. It’s more fun. I have Red Bull.”
When asked why she was attending meetings, Lindsay said “I was like, `I don’t want to be written about at these clubs with these people. I work, I act, I have a living. That’s what I do every day. I work every single day.”
I’m actually not going to be snarky about this, because we bitch and moan about what drunken assholes these celebs are all the time, so now that one of them is taking steps to address the underlying issues, I’m not going to bitch and moan about it. Rock on, Linds, and keep coming back.
* For the record, I’ve decided that the “eyewitness” who saw Lohan in an AA meeting in Los Angeles was probably her publicist, trying to rehab her reputation. If Page Six ran a story every time they got a report that an A- or B-list celeb showed up at an AA meeting, they wouldn’t have column space to print anything else. And I don’t think they’re such huge assholes that they’d take it upon themselves to sacrifice her anonymity. The U.S. media is typically pretty responsible about that sort of thing.

After almost days of searching, the paparazzi catch Nicole Richie and Joel Madden together. Take that, Hilary Duff. Now you’re left all alone with your hyper-successful, talent-driven career and your consistently positive media image. They sure showed you. [X17]

Lindsay, you made it too easy for me this week. I really thought I would go outside the box and find some D list celebrity to make fun of but then I saw this. Nobody should wear a jumpsuit unless they are fixing your toilet. I don’t care if this jumpsuit cost $2,500. Linsday has been looking really bloated these days and wearing a shapeless jumpsuit really doesn’t help to quell the rumors that she is plumping up. I miss Linsday when she had red hair and wore jeans and t-shirts. No matter how hard she tries, she is no fashionista.

From our friends at GoFugYourself….this is too wonderful for words. Someone actually grammatically corrects Lindsay’s incoherent email about Al Gore and Aliens or whatever. I love how she thinks that she is famous enough that politicians will really care that people badmouth her in the press. I hope she knows that all of her “bad publicity” is the only reason why she is famous. It isn’t for her stellar acting chops. Honestly hon, since “Mean Girls” it has just been downhill.

Step up! Be a man! If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.
Lindsay Lohan needs you to join her cause. She is definitely against something, and she is definitely willing to fight for it, and she definitely NEEDS AND WANTS YOUR HELP. The exact nature of this cause is inconclusive right now, but who cares? Al Gore and the Clinton Administration have already lent it their full support. Come on board!
