She only goes to rehab in order to hide from the cops when faced with possible jail time.
I can't believe I am defending her – but apparently the guy pretty much faked all of this and wasn't hurt at all and only caused a scene when he realized it was Lohan. He sprinted after her car to try to catch her (not sure you can do that with a fucked up knee…).
Thank you, donner, my first reaction too.First she moved back to NY to escape burglary troubles, now she hides in rehab after another h & r.
Typical crackie victim strategy.
Please, no TV for her! ENOUGH of her!
@goheels – it's an instant 15 seconds of fame to say you were around her when something 'happened'! Look how many people have reported 'fake' incidents that have made national headlines! She needs to just go away.
donner nailed it.
If she was to go to rehab it would be a vain attempt to show Judge Saunders that she knows her life is out of control. The only problem is that it'll be her 6th stint in rehab, which she only goes to when she's in legal trouble, which at this point even a blind, deaf a mute person wouldn't buy.
Psstt… I can do early 20s roles too… just saying.
I think what @goheels83 is most likely what happened. There's been other stories similar to this, even with Lohan, where people see her as a way to get noticed/money, and go for it.
@goheels I can definitely see how people could try to use her like that, and it's a shame if they do. That said, if it forces her to get help, I'm all for it. There is a part of me that roots for her, I'll admit it. She IS an adult and she definitely needs to take ownership of her issues, despite her horrendous upbringing. But there is also a part of her that was and still could be a good actress and a functional human being. I don't want to see her life wasted.
Seems like she doing everything she can to be the next to join the 27 club.
@goheels- everything I've seen that he actually went to the hospital and the scans showed torn tendons. When a person is in shock the brain will suppress pain which can allow someone to run 15 feet to a car. There would have been no reason for him to run towards he car if the car isn't come in contact with him. He was still on the hotel property, at which he's a chef, so he'd be covered under the hotel's insurance.
I hope she gets herself together but i dont have high hopes for that! She is a target but its her fault that she is a target!
@whocares & goheels – In addition to that, sometimes it doesn't take much to seriously injure someone. Especially in a knee/ankle/elbow/shoulder area – just an awkward tap when someone doesn't know it's coming can really mess you up.
TV is hard work there is no way Lindsay could keep up the pace it would interfere with her social life.She's do 3 or 4 days in rehab pronounce herself cured and go back to her old life.She's a lost cause.
She needs to go to a prison. Rehab has not and will not help her. And her enabling ass hot mess of a mother needs to never come near her again. I am not a fan of LL whatsoever, but looking at pictures of her from when she was still "normal" up to now is just shocking at how badly she's fucked herself up. She's out of options with the exception of being locked up. Just my opinion..
Rehab, prison, drug dens — she turns me into Mr Pessimist, and I don't have high hopes for her. Whatever is wrong with her, it's wrong at a deep structural level of her personality, and she would need intensive daily therapy for 12 months or more to begin making a dent in her self-destructive pattern.
@amber – You are absolutely right! I see it happen And he could have had a previous injury too and the giant car, ya know, made it worse.
@shauniebear – ITA!!!! Lock her up and get her away from her family and the general population. I tried so hard to watch the Dina show and had to turn it off. She is such an evasive C*** and has no respect for anyone else. I'm sure she taught Lindsay all her tricks. I'm a victim crap and all my problems are caused by other people. Grow up! I think a nice NY prison will do her some good.
@goheels – I understand what you're saying but there are many many cases of injuries in accidents that aren't obvious for the first 24 hours or so. Sometimes it can take up to a week for some to be come obvious – a person thinks "Oh, I'll give it a couple of days, I'm just sore" and then a week goes by and you realize it's not going away. Not saying that's true in this case, but it does happen.
Remember Carole's date Chandler Bing on Growing Pains got into a car accident and was fine but died later bc they didn't know he had internal bleeding? Poor Mike.
My thing is…it doesn't matter if the guy is hurt or not or is after money or not. Let the court sort that one out. The issue here is that she hit someone and she fled. She is not being set up. She broke the law. You do not flee the scene of an accident. The End.
Brenda, you're absolutely right.And was she drinking before she drove? She could have caused serious injury or death.
@ Brenda & goes – That is definitely right! From what I read, they're claiming backstage was an alcohol-free zone, and even Slash is saying she wasn't drinking. Therefore, the guy claiming she reeked of booze is lying. Here's the problem I find with that: that's assuming she didn't keep a bottle of alcohol in the car and slam it on the way over to Dream! If she slammed it in the car on the way over, she would most definitely reek of booze.
i can see her going to the leann rhymes version of rehab. a week of days at a spa and then do the talk show deal on "how you have shanged your evil ways". maybe when she's 30 (if she lives that long) she'll get a clue that she's an adult and needs to grow up.
She couldn't even handle the four days she was supposed to work on Ugly Betty. She should stick with what she's doing, working the infamous angle. It's all that's left for her.
Wow. What to say? Is there a point anymore? As far as I'm concerned she is no better than any common streetwalker hooking to support her drug habit, no different than the homeless person begging for money to eat who just goes and spends it on booze. Not that there aren't truly struggling, truly good people that are homeless that need real help. BUT, SHE is inwilling to help herself, she doesn't want anything different for herself, unwilling to take any responsibility , to be honest with herself. She's a lost cause. She will either A: Die from drug overdose/asphyxiation/car wreck. B: She will turn her life around and be just what we all know she can be. or C: Continue doing what she 's doing, fucking up then saying she's sorry and going to rehab, then driving around town drunk, getting in another hit and run, etc. etc. etc ad nauseum. If nothing else it makes for interesting blogging, celebrity gossip etc. Look at what's happened to Britney? She is actually psycho. Paris is a joke that only she isn't in on. Kim K, also a joke. Lindsay could turn it around and make something of herself, her name, the publics fascination of her. E really needs to do a reality show on her as enty said, and bring the whole lohan family along, it would be ratings gold.I'd love to see the delusion, the drinking, the drugs, it would be great to get all that delusion on tape and be able to catch them in some of their crack lies. Enty's entertainment friends can make this happen, the key to getting her there is free stuff and free blow. She'd do it for sure!
I'm sad that so many are pulling for her failure.
Speaking of LeAnn, she's been MIA lately, that's a good thing right?! RIGHT?!?!
Why is Slash getting involved?
LL needs to go to prison. Amanda needs to go to prison. Look at RDJ- he learned his lesson. They break the law over and over again- jail time is the only solution. It'll only be a matter of time before one of them kills someone.
Considering the fact she hit a BABY last year and nothing happened to her. And also when she got into that accident on set and pulled the switcheroo with her assistant they found water bottles filled with alcohol in car, I believe she was just Lindsay being Lindsay. Although I do believe there are a lot of opportunists out there, I do not believe Lindsay ever.
Regardless, at the end of the day she wasn't arrested for hitting this guy. She was arrested for fleeing the scene of a possible accident. That's not debatable. She checked her car (which is evidence that she knew the came in contact with something. People do transomly check their car for damage) and then without a word she walked into a club where she stayed for 30 minutes before returning.
Lindsay Lohan's situation is sad, sad, sad. After seeing her 'mother' on Dr. Phil, and her dad on tv whenever he gets the chance, I feel so bad for Lindsay because there is NO ONE who is going to help her, the way Britney's parents did for Brit. Lindsay will self destruct and I cannot understand why people take such pleasure in that.
THANK YOU, Jeannies. I so agree. Can't we pull for her? Why are we so set at wanting her to join the 27 Club?
I don't want her to join the 27 club, I just think she is a selfish asshole.
The reason she gets cast is because she brings free publicity even more so than any of the names Enty mentioned. I also think these people think they can help her and don't realize what a nightmare she is until she leaves a mess in her wake.
Any old punks here remember Stiv Bators of the Dead Boys? He was hit by a taxicab in Paris in 1990, went to the hospital but left after waiting for a while (assuming he was uninjured, apparently) and died in his sleep the same night from a concussion.
My question still is…why is she driving in NYC?? How many blocks did she drive???
Robert: I remember that, although I thought it was internal bleeding that got him. That scenario happens far more often than we realize, which is why it's a good idea to go ahead and go to the hospital to be checked out after an accident, even if you think you're just fine.
rejectedcarebear: I don't know what Amanda thinks or has to say about her problems, but I have serious doubts that jail would do for LiLo what it did for RDJ–for starters, he knew he had a problem and admitted it to the judge, but as far as she's concerned, it's everyone else who has the problem, because she's just fine (and we all know where she got THAT from…). Also, he hadn't totally burned all his bridges and so still had people who liked him and wanted to see him do well, and made the effort to do his job well even at the height of his problems, whereas we all know how seriously she takes working, and her willingness to steal anything that isn't nailed down, or destroy anything that is. Finally, I don't see her being willing to take roles in smaller movies and work her way back up the Hollywood food chain the way he did, because as far as she's concerned she's a big star and doesn't need to put forth any kind of effort.
It's possible that jail time (which she's certainly earned by now; I don't recall that he ever endangered nearly as many people as she has, never mind robbing them blind at any opportunity) would straighten her out, but I'm pessimistic–it would get her off the streets before she kills someone, but until she's willing and able to accept her own complicity in her wretched situation, I don't see her getting any better, and if she does end up dying as a result, I can only pray that she doesn't take any innocent people with her.
Someone said people are pulling for her failure. No, if you or I behaved like this we would not get work AND would be in jail. She needs jail, or she is going to end up dead. Or a hooker.
Love the actresses that begin with an A….
I'm cynical enough to believe that Lilo's reps put out the BS claim that the guy wasn't hurt. I agree with the bottom line – she hit someone and didn't even bother to stop or find out if he was okay. Most human beings with souls would be horrified if they hit someone with their car, and would make sure he/she was okay, then apologize at the very least.
When she's found DEAD lets see how many people crawl up to spew some kind words
I will never understand why the hell cops never give this idiot a breathalyzer
MadLyb -AND she stopped to check the car!
1) donner is right – she only goes to rehab for show, for the judge
2) it doesn't matter if the victim is faking or not, it's a crime to leave the scene of the accident like she did
3) she's on probation, and she's supposed to obey all laws or she could have probation revoked and do some serious time. *crosses fingers*
4) two previous LiLo judges just recently got reprimanded, so maybe the judge this time will be more strict? (hope, hope, hope)
I agree that she is a selfish asshole. She is an adult and is responsible for her foolish actions. But I think we can all agree that there were some real talents lost (ones FAR more talented than LL) in the 27 Club. I, for one, would like to see her straighten up and fly right and actually make something of herself besides being just another number on that sad list.
Sorry, but in my opinion LL doesn't deserve rehab. Prison is the only thing that might save her life. Her career will never be resuscitated.However, I really don't much care if she is found dead at some point in the near future; she'd have brought in on herself. She's had enough chances. There are truly innocent people dying every day who deserve our attention and kind wishes. Lohan is not one of them.
That photo! Hahahahahaha
