Lindsay Lohan is everywhere! (Well, everywhere except jail, but that’s another story …)
Brett Ratner’s apology for a gay slur he says heÂ inadvertentlyÂ and un-thoughtfully made in passing is eclipsing the fact that he also revealed before sleeping with Lindsay Lohan he made her get an STD test. We’re not knocking his desire to stay informed and healthy but this clearly would be a bigger deal if he wasn’t also trying to madeÂ amendsÂ for his previous comment, saying:Â “It was a dumb way of expressing myself. Everyone who knows me knows that I donâ€™t have a prejudiced bone in my body. But as a storyteller I should have been much more thoughtful about the power of language and my choice of words.”
Should he also have thought of the power of his language before revealing to Howard Stern: “Iâ€™m a hypochondriac. Before I go all the way, I send the girl to the doctor and check them for everything. My doctor has a test to tell if youâ€™re going to catch something in the future even.”
Perhaps based on both these comments, a campaign has been started to remove him from his role of producing the Oscars. Is all publicity truly good publicity?
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.
Celebrities have a way toÂ squirrelingÂ their way out of jail time and it’s hard to believe Lindsay Lohan will be any exception. Lohan was sentenced to 30 days in jail for violating her probation by notÂ attendingÂ therapy sessions required by the court. Additionally she managed to get kicked out of the Downtown Women’s Center. Yep, it seems like jail is the next logical move.
The judge ruled that all of Lohan’s remaining community service must be served at the L.A. County Morgue – if she doesn’t complete the rest of her probation according the judge’s stipulation, she’ll be sentenced to an additional 270 days in jail. This judge is NOT messing around! She also made it clear that her 30 days in jail will be served – imagine this – IN JAIL. Not under house arrest.
The judge also had a few cautionary words for Lindsay, suggesting she stop tweeting her experiences. Sounds like LiLo needs to keep her head down, power through the 30 days, and emerge on the other side. Can she do it?
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.
Life can be really difficult when you’re doing hard time, as Lindsay Lohan showed this weekend. Â After serving several days in house arrest, Lindsay decided she’d had enough of captivity and escaped – to her rooftop garden, which is well within her allowed perimeter.
Lindsay hung out in the sun, relaxed on a lounger, and generally enjoyed the sunny day. Â She’s expected to have to endure at least a month more of this grueling routine, which also includes such horrifying activities as watching movies, sleeping until noon every day, and hanging out on the internet. Â With such cruel punishment, hopefully she’ll have learned her lesson now and will stay out of trouble in the future.
Lindsay Lohan is going to have such a terribly tough time during her house arrest. We feel so badly for her! She will be forced to paint, read scripts, lounge around at her pool and possibly even make more arty short films where she pouts in a bikini. The horror!
Yes, Lindsay Lohan’s imprisonment sounds like most people’s wet dream. Perhaps her punishment might be more effective if she was put under house arrest in a city housing project? Or possibly on a farm in rural somewhere without TV, cellphone signal or the Internet? Well, she will probably miss her new short film by Richard Phillips playing at the Gagosian Gallery in New York City from June 1st to 5th. How sad to miss your own film debut! Or is it? You can decide that one for yourself…
No, instead, Linday Lohan has stocked up on canvases, accoring to TMZ.com,Â so she can paint while she’s under house lockup and reportedly has a whole stack of scripts to go through.
Linday is pretty sure she’ll be released from house arrest before her July 2nd birthday, but until then she’ll be enjoying her sentence at her own personal spa vacation spot — her multi-million dollar home.
The man who has been obsessed with Lindsay Lohan has stepped up his pursuit of her another notch, probably because she’s been in the news so often and he can’t get his mind off her, and frankly Lindsay is a little freaked out. Â Lindsay told her Twitter followers that the man has been threatening via text message to kill her, and that he’s been showing up on her property unannounced and uninvited.
This has been going on for four years, but recently the man has intensified his quest for Lindsay, sending her bizarre presents and bombarding her phone with text messages. Â Lindsay has appealed to the police for help, and hopefully this creep will be kept away.
