This is quite theÂ juxtaposition: prior to heading off for her stint in jail, Lindsay Lohan had a week to finish a nude photoshoot for Playboy, much of which will be re-shoots of earlier photos. Turns out Playboy was unhappy with the first batch of pics which have already been shot and wants to start over.
They haven’t said specifically if there was anything wrong with the images, just that “Playboy executives wanted to go another direction with her shoot so they asked her to come back for a second time,â€ a source told RadarOnline.com.
Of course, this all adds up to more cash in Lindsay’s pocket – she’s reportedly getting $1 million to take it all off for Playboy. Maybe that will help soften the blow of her recent jail sentence: 30 days. In jail. No option for house arrest. This is herÂ fifth jail sentence since being arrested twice for drunken driving in 2007. Twenty-five-year-old Lindsay last served 35 days on house arrest on a four month jail sentence.
Lindsay Lohan has been ordered to seek private counseling and if she doesn’t, she could be headed back to jail. Lohan was back in court today for a progress hearing and the judge in her case was none too pleased about how the troubled starlet has been following court orders.
So far, Lindsay Lohan has completed only 33 hours of community service out of a court-ordered 480 hours. “She can’t be nickel and diming these hours,” Judge Stephanie Sautner told Lohan’s attorney. “I know there is a movie deal. I will not take into consideration — ‘sorry, I”m at the Gotti movie’ — I will not do it. She needs to complete the community service within the year.”
Judge Sautner also warned Lindsay Lohan that the probation department needs to be able to contact herÂ with a working phone numberÂ when they try to reach her.
Lohan’s worst problem, the judge said, is that she has failed to begin sessions with a private therapist. “She needs to get into counseling, and I am going to give her 21 days to get into counseling,” Sautner said. Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Holley, claimed his client was worried about the cost of private counseling and whether or not she would be covered by her insurance.
Judge Sautner was having none of it, however, and said Lohan “needs to find an individual therapist that takes a credit card.” If Lohan has not shown she has enrolled in a therapy program within 21 days, Sautner said she would revoke her probation. She also said Lohan must complete three more anti-shoplifting classes before she returns to court on October 19.
Lindsay Lohan‘s grand theft charge may be reduced to a misdemeanor, due to the fact that the necklace she allegedly stole may not be worth what the jeweler claims. Â The necklace in question was priced at $2,500, but quite a few jewelers have chimed in to say the necklace is only worth about $800.
If this turns out to be true, it’s good news for Lindsay, as grand theft charges are based solely on the actual value of the item. Â The cutoff level is $950, so as long as the necklace is valued under that threshold, Lindsay’s looking at a petty theft charge with a maximum of six months in countyâ€¦ and of course we know she’s never see the inside of a cell if that’s the case.
Lindsay Lohan has left rehab after only 23 days of treatment. The troubled starlet was originally sentenced to serve 90 days at the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, but doctors at the rehab clinic believed Lohan was ready for early release.
Actress Lindsay Lohan went immediately into rehab on August 2 after a two week stay in jail for violating her probation from a DUI case in 2007. An unidentified source told People magazine that Lohan was “out and doing really well.”
According to doctors at the rehab facility, they believe Lohan does not suffer from ADHD or bipolar disorder, as had been earlier reported. They also believe improperly prescribed ADHD drug Adderall may have been partially to blame for her erratic behavior.
Lohan will reportedly be continuing treatment with UCLA’s outpatient program. She will also be required by the judge in her case to undergo random drug testing and attend a 12-step program. The actress has previously spent time in rehab at the Wonderland Center, Promises Treatment Center and the Cirque Lodge Treatment Center. We can only hope this time around will be her last.
Lindsay Lohan‘s ankle bracelet may be embarrassing for the struggling starlet, but the alcohol monitoring device may just be the best thing for her. The SCRAMx bracelet will check Lohan’s body every 30 minutes for traces of alcohol. If Lindsay Lohan doesn’t keep away from the liquor, she could end up in jail. We can only hope Lohan will take this as an opportunity to get back on the path to being clean and sober for good.
Lindsay Lohan’s ankle bracelet is part of a deal to keep the actress out of jail after missing a mandatory court appearance because she was allegedly trapped in Europe after losing her passport. (Yeah, we still donâ€™t believe that one.)
Lohan has to wear the alcohol monitoring device at all times until at least her next court date on July 6th. She was also specifically ordered to refrain from drinking or doing drugs and will be forced to undergo random drug testing. Even under the threat of jail time, however, we wonder if Lohan can really keep herself from falling off the wagon yet again.
Although Lohan may protest that she’s doing just fine, it seems she is pretty much the only person in the world who thinks so. How many more reports of ridiculous behavior, accusations of criminal activity or photos of Lohan falling on her ass outside of nightclubs do we have to have before she realizes she has a serious problem?
Please Lindsay, get a clue and get the help you need. We don’t need to see any more young Hollywood stars landing themselves in an early grave.
