Lindsay Lohan, who is, giving her the benefit of the doubt, three months sober, is planning on hosting a New Year's blowout at the club LAX in Las Vegas. I think that when leaving rehab, Cirque probably didn't give Lindsay a brochure that said something like "hey if you get the chance to host a raucous drinking bash on the biggest drinking night of the year in the biggest drinking city in the world, you should do it."
What in the hell was she thinking? To cover for this obviously poor decision, "leaks" are starting to trickle in which says that Lindsay has to fulfill an earlier commitment she made in the summer to host her 21st birthday party at Pure. Pure Management owns both clubs. The "leaks" also say that Lindsay doesn't have enough money to pay them back the fee they advanced her and so is forced to do it.
Lindsay might have $10 in her bank account, but if she was serious about getting sober, she wouldn't do it. Do you honestly for one second believe that Lindsay couldn't make enough to pay off whatever fee it is? Do you think perhaps she could sign on to do endorse something for a nice quick buck that didn't involve drinking and partying in Vegas on NYE?
You don't think there aren't any companies in the entire world who wouldn't want Lindsay to do some commercials for them and would pay enough to get rid of the debt she owes Pure? If Lindsay can't get that deal then she needs to get rid of her agents NOW. This is the biggest bunch of crap ever.
You think Pure is going to sue her for breach of contract if she pays them back? If so, then she needs to fire her publicist. A good publicist would make it very clear to the public and Pure that forcing someone in recovery to honor a commitment to host a party at a bar doesn't make you look good at all especially when they returned the fee.
Lindsay is doing this because she wants to do it and it is disappointing to say the least.
