Lindsay Lohan’s been hospitalized with the Chikungunya virus

lindsay lohan

It was only a few weeks ago when Lindsay Lohan‘s vacation was nearly ruined after she contracted a case of the mosquito-borne Chikungunya virus. She seemed to be soldiering on, not wanting to miss out on precious yachting time, but apparently it’s got the better of her again and she’s been so ill that she was forced to seek treatment at a London hospital.

Lindsay Lohan is in a London hospital with a rare, incurable virus she apparently picked up in Bora Bora … TMZ has learned.

We’re told Lindsay contracted Chikungunya, a virus transmitted by mosquito bites that causes fever, joint pain and fatigue.

Lindsay vacationed in Bora Bora over the holidays and then flew to L.A. to shoot an Esurance commercial … we believe for the Super Bowl.

Lindsay began complaining of the illness just before New Year’s. She then went back to London where she became so ill she couldn’t walk.

Lindsay is currently in King Edward VII’s Hospital … the same place the Queen gets treated. They’re keeping Lindsay because she has a high fever and the joint pain is unbearable. As for her prognosis … we’re told the joint pain could last for months.

Oh man, that’s not very fun. You really don’t have anything in life if you don’t have your health, and being in constant pain to the point that you can’t walk or do anything is so depressing and awful. No matter what you think of Lindsay Lohan, I don’t think anyone deserves to be ill/in pain (except maybe child molesters or some shit, but you get my point).

Hope you recover soon, LiLo.

Lindsay Lohan might be heading to Broadway

lindsay lohan

Lindsay Lohan recently completed a… well, not an entirely disastrous run in Speed-the-Plow in London’s West End, which must make her a professional theatre actress now, right? According to In Touch Weekly, that’s good enough for Oprah, who wants to put LiLo’s name in lights on Broadwayyyyyy!

An insider tells ‘In Touch,’ “Oprah bought the rights to several books that she wants to produce for the stage, and Lindsay is begging to be cast in one.”

“If that doesn’t work out, she’s hoping Oprah can get her an audition for something like ‘Cabaret,’” the insider adds, explaining that the talk show legend helped Lindsay land her role in ‘Speed-the-Plow’ in London this past fall. “Lindsay needs another helping hand.”

Since her docuseries on OWN, “Lindsay’s referred to Oprah as her fairy godmother,” says an insider.

Well, ain’t that nice? Considering the source, this is likely a load of bullhonkey, but can you imagine Lindsay Lohan on Broadway? Nooooo thank you. I’m trying to think of a book-turned-play she could even star in, and nothing’s coming to mind. Thankfully, I’m sure it’ll never come to fruition.

Lindsay Lohan has contracted the mosquito-borne Chikungunya virus

Lindsay Lohan has taken a break from her new straight-laced London life for a nice little holiday in French Polynesia. Things have been going great… except for the fact that she’s been really ill after contracting the mosquito-borne Chikungunya virus.

The virus isn’t deadly, but it can cause fever, joint pain, swelling, etc. There’s no known cure and it can be pretty debilitating until you start to recover, so it’s not a pleasant experience, in any case. But don’t worry too much about Lindsay – she’s determined not to let it get the better of her precious vacation time.


In any case, I love travel but this is like, my biggest fear – I totally have the shit luck that I’d go to some beautiful country and come back with intestinal parasites, bug-borne diseases and anything else that can happen to a human being. Hope LiLo recovers soon!

Lindsay Lohan is finally growing up in London

Lindsay Lohan

You know, I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Lindsay Lohan might finally be getting her act together. She relocated to London earlier this year to take part in David Mamet’s Speed-the-Plow (which was less than stellar, but A+ for effort) and now she’s just, you know, living life… AWAY from all the party animals that got her in trouble back in New York and Los Angeles. She loves her new life so much, in fact, that she’s vowed to never go back!

From The Guardian:

“In LA I didn’t know what to do apart from go out every night,” she says. “That’s when my friends were free. And I would go out and there would be all these cameras there and that’s when it became difficult.”

Lohan has lived in the capital for nine months now, has a lease for another year on her flat in the West End, and is currently planning to make it her permanent home. She can’t emphasise enough the liberation the move has given her. “I can go for a run here on my own,” she says. “I do every morning, early, and I think how my friends in New York would still be up partying at that time. I needed to grow up and London is a better place for me to do that than anywhere else.”

The defining moment of this shift, she says, came on a holiday she took to Greece in the summer. “It was,” she says, still thrilled at the idea, “the first time I have ever just been on a vacation by myself. I just wandered about on my own! I turned off my phone. It was so extraordinarily freeing for me. Like another life.” The world, which had for so long reflected back to her an ugly image of herself, was suddenly just “out there”.

“I won’t live in LA again, hell no,” she says. “My friends tell me shit when they come over I don’t want to hear. I don’t even know who got married and who got pregnant. You turn on the news in LA and it is all gossip about people. All the stuff that is going on in the world right now and this gossip is the news?” She laughs. “I love the BBC. I haven’t heard myself mentioned on TV since I have been here. That has been really weird for me, and great.”

I mean, she sounds coherent, right? Sober? Her Instagram seems fairly self-absorbed, but that’s just celebrity. It’s notably lacking in the insanity department. I hate to get excited too early, but I actually have high hopes for her. Our last story on her was a month ago, the one before that was another month before. She’s staying out of the spotlight and I think it’s doing her a world of good. Get it, Lindsay!

Lindsay Lohan is being sued for $60 million for stealing an app idea

lindsay lohan michael lohan jr

I don’t think there’s a week that goes by when Lindsay Lohan isn’t in a spot of bother. This time around, she and her brother, Michael Lohan Jr., are being sued to the tune of $60 million for stealing an idea for a virtual closet app from a former business partner. Oh, dear.

From Page Six:

In court papers filed Thursday, Manhattan resident Fima Potik claims Michael Lohan Jr. — a summa cum laude grad of Ithaca College — and his famous sister stole his trade secrets and big-name advisors like Arianna Huffington from his online shopping company Spotted Friend to start a competing business.

After meeting Potik in 2013 the Lohan siblings, along with Michael’s roommate Christopher Roth, became equity members of Spotted Friend.

The Lohans and Roth signed a confidentiality agreement with Potik and he handed over a beta version of Spotted’s mobile app, the software, potential revenue streams and a list of advisors.

The “Mean Girls” actress agreed to be Spotted’s spokeswoman, and signed a contract giving Potik access to her physical closet, according to the suit. The app allows users to view celebrities’ and friends’ virtual closets—then purchase wardrobe items.

Things seem pretty normal so far, right? Except… not. Because a few months later, the Lohans launched a commerce website called Vigme that’s apparently a “virtual clone” of Spotted. Oh, dear.

“Vigme’s mobile application, as displayed on Vigme’s website, Facebook page and Twitter page, is nearly identical in design and layout to Spotted Friend’s mobile application,” the suit says.

“Specifically, Vigme’s mobile application implements social community features, including what appears to be a user’s personal ‘feed’ and a ‘trending’ function, all of which originated from and are present in Spotted Friend’s mobile application,” the suit says.

Potik, a Boston University grad, says “published reports indicate” that both Huffington and Deutsch are advising Vigme.

Unfortunately, shitty, shady stuff like this happens all the time. Especially considering this is the Lohan family we’re talking about, I 100% believe they are guilty of this. Michael seems like just as much of an asshole as his sister (and his father, for that matter), so…

Lindsay Lohan spent 14 days in solitary confinement (and loved it)

lindsay lohan

Lindsay Lohan went to prison for all of two weeks back in 2010, getting out early despite her 90-day sentence due to overcrowding in the California prison system. But before anyone thinks she was having a grand old time, living it up with her fellow high-brow criminal offenders, think again: Lindsay has revealed that she spent the whole time in solitary confinement… and actually kinda liked it.

From The Daily Mail:

The actress told Jonathan Ross on his chat show that her fourteen days in solitary confinement was was an extreme sentence for the charge she was put away on.

‘Solitary confinement is actually very different, you leave your cell for one hour a day and you don’t go outside,’ Lindsay, 28, explains during Saturday night’s episode.

‘I don’t think anyone knows that but the other girls in the other cells were in there for murder… They [the Prison Officers] said it was for “safety purposes”, I said, “what am I going to do?”

‘I made a mistake, I went to a club and then I drank and I drove home and that’s not the right thing to do but to put someone in that position, it was very scary, it was very jarring.’

‘The weirdest part for me was I finally had silence in my life,’ Lindsay recalled. ‘As terrified as I was and as scared as I was, I finally felt like I didn’t have to answer to anyone and I didn’t have to do anything for anyone. That was the weirdest part of it.’

When Jonathan asked if perhaps it was a good thing for her in that case, Lindsay said, ‘Two days would have been enough.’

Huh. Well, it’s a miracle that she’s stayed out of prison for the past 4 years, but I doubt it’s the last she’ll see of the inside of a cell, unfortunately. She looks well, though. I’m just skeptical to believe that she’s actually going to be able to hold it together for any amount of time, unfortunately.

No One Is Seeing Lindsay Lohan’s Play

Lindsay+Lohan

Lindsay Lohan has been starring in David Mamet’s Speed-the-Plow and it’s been something of a disaster. And now, not even Oprah can save her from her dismal ticket sales. From the Daily News:

Lohan’s much-hyped arrival across the pond to star in a production of David Mamet’s “Speed-the-Plow” garnered the show press and drew audiences in the beginning, but now tickets for the play are on deep discount, nearly half off, starting at a measly 15 British pounds, or $24 here.

“Save 50% on tickets to ‘Speed-the-Plow’ starring Lindsay Lohan. Top price seats were £59.50, now just £29.75, saving you 50% when you book by Saturday,” is plastered on the homepage for West End Wilma, London’s equivalent to New York’s discount TKTS.

Sorry, Lohan, but LOLLLLL. Only $24 for a ticket? That’s pretty bad. And you know what? She deserves it. I feel no remorse over saying that. Yeah, she tried to get her shit together, but when you’re consistently late for rehearsals and can’t keep it together on stage, you deserve poor reviews and a drop in sales. I was rooting for her at one point, but now, I’m so over it. I don’t feel badly for her at all. I’m going to give her this:

you tried so hard star

I gotta say, I’m morbidly curious, and for $24, if the show were in the US, I would totally go see it. Would you?
