Lindsay Lohan Sold All The Furniture Gifted To Her By Million Dollar Decorators

Last night was the season finale of Million Dollar Decorators and the big reveal of Lindsay Lohan's place that had to be shot before everything was finished and without the cooperation of Lindsay who had bailed on the producers and refused to do anything with them after they had furnished her home. It was so bad that the producers wanted their stuff back, but they have never dealt with a master thief like Lindsay. By the time they came looking for it, Lindsay had it all hidden away and if they ever want it back, they are going to have track down all the people that Lindsay has sold it off too. They gave Lindsay about $250K worth of stuff, but I bet she took way less than that just to get the cash.

That's embarrassing.

Million Dollar Dummies coming soon to a TV near you!

Lola said...

Not a bit of sympathy here. Not an iota.

Nessie said...

Why do people still want to work with her? If you are that stupid to ignore all the known stories about her and the way she operates, than I guess Bravo got what they deserved.......

dee123 said...

Shouldn't everyone by now know this bitch's tricks?

VIPblonde said...

Did anyone else watch the episode last night? When they did the reveal, I was thinking that it looked like they were decorating for a 12-year-old! The design looked very pre-teen, but if Lindsay is emotionally stuck in being a "tween," it explains a lot!

mell61 said...

How many bridges has she burnt now? And still she seems to expect that she has a career ahead of her... Girl needs to ditch the family, get some help, and see if there is a career she can resurrect (who knows, without the family and substances, maybe some talent may appear).

Silly Girl said...

It's their own fault, seriously. Anyone who voluntarily works with/for her is an idiot and if they get ripped off, that's on them. There is, obviously, no legal recourse since nothing seems to stick, nor make a difference in the courts. Why can't she just go away. Done.

Christopher Cruz said...

All I can say is, SUCKED IN!!!

LottaColada said...

How many more of these stories before people get it... she can not be trusted.

phoenix said...

I'm just waiting for someone to offer this family a reality show. I have a feeling it's eventually coming because it would be so easy. No need to stage any drama. Just let them be them while the cameras roll.. cut, print, done.

MadLyb said...

Typical addict behavior. :(

Wendi P said...

Not surprised at all. Once a crack head always a crack head.

Sarah said...

VIP Blonde- didn't she ask for a "princessy" room? Yuck. She's not that much younger than I am

Tuxedo Cat said...

I feel badly for them - they gave her a chance when she was starting to make a comeback and they got screwed.

J Sara said...

I don't feel bad for them at all - they picked her because it's easy ratings. Serves them right for choosing a known thief and liar as a subject. It's a shame they don't do this for war veterans or teachers. I can think of far far more deserving people than this trash

Barton Fink said...

I think they got their money's worth with this publicity stunt.

Sue in MO said...

Seriously, at what round table meeting did a bunch of editors say "Oh, let's choose Lindsay Lohan and throw $250,000 worth of merchandise at her" and think that was a good idea???

Obviously, you get what you throw money away on.

yodelay said...

There goes any chance for a Bravo reality show. Which is about the only hope she had to make money in any way besides whoring. Her whore gigs probably come with lots of coke though, so she probably likes that better anyway.

Amber said...

All I can think of now is Jared Leto in Requiem for a Dream, stealing his mom's TV over and over again to sell it for drugs. Oh, and "ass to ass".

renay83 said...

I guess I can see why they had her on. On paper she seems like a ratings draw because people are waiting for the train to wreck again but jesus her personality is boring as shit. Watching the scenes she was in was like watching paint dry.

curlyhairslacker said...

Nothing new to add, what the hell did they expect?

Topper Madison said...

Maybe I'm misunderstanding things here, but if they gave her the stuff, isn't it hers to sell?

J Sara said...

Ha whore gigs - thanks for the laugh :)

Margaret said...

I find it hard to believe there weren't lawyers involved, making sure that everything stayed as placed until the contractually obligated final reveal was shot. Isn't that standard business practice?

Silly Girl said...

A little OT, but I wonder what happened to the person who pitched LL as a feature. Do you think the ratings were that huge a draw that it served its purpose? Or was all the hype to draw attention to the show and it still flopped? Anyone know the outcome?

Frufra said...

Amber, can you gently explain "ass to ass"? Someone referenced it the other day (libby? - or was it you?) - I want to know, but not badly enough to read something potentially mindblowing on the interwebz.

Blondie! said...

Maybe they thought that the weight of the furniture wouldn't make it easy for her to hide? I mean, you can only lift so much

MISCH said...

Anyone who hires her or does business with her deserves what they get..

tookiesmum said...

Wow I'm really shocked. As shocked as I was finding out Octomom is back on welfare.

Turkish Taffy said...

Frufra: It's the sex scene from Requiem for a Dream. Easy to find on YouTube. More degrading than sexy. I could explain in a nutshell, but please don't anyone get offended. Two women, one dildo, wrong place.

timebob said...

@Frufra ass to ass is when two women or men are doggy style back to back (ass to ass) with a dildo between them fucking it.

A few years ago, Darren Aronofsky
called into Howard Stern to promote Black Swan. Howard asked Darren how he convinced Jennifer Connely to do the 'ass to ass' scene at the end of the movie.

He said he had to sell it as great art and how brave on actress she was to take on something like that. It was basically getting an Oscar winning actress to do porn. It was brilliant.

Requiem for a Dream is such a great movie and the soundtrack is haunting.

Amber said...

@Frufra - it was probably me, though I can't say for sure. I'm going to try to find a delicate way to explain this...Jennifer Connelly's character gets hooked on drugs, and gets desperate. A pimp offers her money so she can score IF she participates in a sex show for a bunch of Suits. She and another girl operate a sex apparatus together, positioned rear-to-rear, while the men throw wads of cash at them.

Amber said...

Welp...or there's timebob's explanation! LOL

Michelle said...

Hasn't she exhausted her 9 lives? This trick keeps landing on her feet regardless of how far she falls or what stink she emits. Wish the media would stop feeding her ego...she doesn't deserve this level of attention or opportunities.

donner said...

I would have to assume by now that all her notorious behavior is well known in the Hollywood scene? All the jewelry, clothing, home thefts that.shes been accused of? So if a company chooses to do business with her, aren't they aware of what they are getting into? I mean if WE know what an asshole she is, and we aren't even in her world, how can people in Hollywood be clueless to it? I have no sympathy for anyone who chooses to do business with her or her family. Caveat emptor......

timebob said...

lol @amber yeah um, I wasn't very delicate about it...*shrugs*

Amy said...

Simple: They just send her a 1099 categorizing the furniture as income, and a copy of course to the IRS.

maggs said...

I don't wish this on her but I think she will end up dead soon if she doesn't get into rehab. Very sad, I think with her Satan Mother Dina & father, add in growing up Hollywood child actress she never really had a chance. Seems like they (her and Dina) are hitting desperation mode for money now.

VIPblonde said...

@Timebob Wait, wha??? Never seen the movie. Are you saying it's not simulated?

White lilly said...

Well, if people got to watch it BECAUSE of her, then mission accomplished!
I cannot believe they didn't know that's what they would get by working with her...

VIPblonde said...

@Sarah You're right! The bedroom was bad, but for me the downstairs living room was worse. It looked like it was waiting for someone to throw a tea party (and not the adult kind)!!

camembert said...

The IRS will have a field day with this one. You have to report gifts over a certain amount as income. Betcha the producers have receipts, and like Amy said, they should issue a 1099.

Do not screw with the IRS.

Feed Watcher said...

I actually watch this show, and they played off the whole Lindsey-blow off issue as a function of her "car accident". You know, the one where she was driving but tried to blame it on her assistant?

Kathryn Ireland, the designer, had to pretend that Lindsey couldn't be there due to the accident and her "filming schedule".

But the big news last night was Lindsey appearing braless on the show to shop for wood flooring. Last night on Watch What Happens Live they showed clips of this and took a special poll about whether she should wear a bra or not.

BTW, they're real, and they're spectacular.

auntliddy said...

So she is becoming an accomplished scam artist. Perhaps thats her bew career. She starting to remind me of sante kimes!

Jazzy said...

Yes, my thoughts exactly. Very juvenile.

Jazzy said...

I love that movie, but the thought of that scene and Jared's arm at the end give me the willies. That movie is the most accurate depiction of addiction I've ever seen.

MsPink Kitty said...

What a lowlife dope fiend! that is what crack heads and meth heads do. When and if they ever get their hands on anything of value, they sell it. Geeze!

She turns 27 this year right? Let the count down begin. Or, will she be a lifer at this nonsense.

Sunny said...

@amber and timebob
Heavens to Betsy! I love the compare and contrast of your two answers
The more you know *star shooting through a rainbow, or sumpin like that*

yodelay said...

@Amber, "ass-to-ass" is what I always think of when I hear about Lohan's "dates." That and that haunting smile Jennifer's character has when she scores her bag of dope.

The music to that movie just kills me too. Really, its such a powerful movie.

Nope said...

Every article about LL for the past few years could have the same headline, "Crazy Drug Addict Acts Like Crazy Drug Addict".

CrazyCatLady said...

Didn't Dina have a show a few years ago? I'm sure it was a trainwreck.

__-__=__ said...

All the Selby books are like that. Check out Last Exit to Brooklyn - they made a movie of this one. The Room freaked me out pretty bad too. It's all the stuff of nightmares.

Amber said...

@yodelay - LOL I often think of that re: Lohan, as well. Clearly. ;)

@CrazyCatLady - I know there was a show following Ali and her attempt at a music career. Dina WANTED a talk show, but don't know if she had her own of any kind.

Sherry said...

Yeah, it occured to me too that if they GAVE her the furniture then it was hers to do whatever with. Did they really think she was going to keep the decorations as they did them? And as Amy first mentioned a 1099 would more than make up for any humiliation they might feel for being stiffed by Linds...Where can I find out who the production company is and make that very suggestion?

The best part? She'd be on the hook for the 1/4 mil amount and she only sold it for an eightball of coke.

whocaresnow12 said...

I'm confused why Bravo hasn't filed a breech of contract suit and a police report of theft. I understand that she moved out the furniture when she found out they were coming to repossess everything, including the floor. The agreement was that Bravo would only comp the $250k bill if she made all required appreancrs for filming. She's gone back on the contract and essentially stole the furniture. She owes them $250k and should be sued.

whocaresnow12 said...

They had one. Nobody watched

Shanabntz said...

Perhaps this was a case of giving someone a "fiftieth" chance. She seems to have the sympathies of many people but it looks like it may be starting to sink in that this girl not going to change. So sad as to what this girl has become.

Susan said...

If selling off $250,000 worth of furniture isn't a sign you're a junkie looking to get a fix, I don't know what it.

Damn you guys, for haunting me with this "ass to ass/drug" imagery. I'm trying to eat lunch. Can't a girl just get a chuckle out of Bravo and Lindsay Lohan's stupidity without wanting to barf?

And with all the things I've read about Requiem for Dream, I will NEVER watch it. I'm sure it is a masterful film, but I just can't handle all of this drug stuff. (Yes. I'm a lightweight. Sorry!)

Mooshki said...

VIPBlonde, I'm sure it was simulated. Soft core porn, not hard core porn.

lazyday603 said...

She really needs to pay royalties to the creators of the series "Shameless". She is the Gallagher family rolled into one person.

stigs84 said...

@amber hahahaha that is too funny that you picture her doing "ass to ass", I just googled it to see what it is...

This weekend I was telling my friend about Lindsay & her mom possibly doing sexual things together for money on NYE & my friend was like "I doubt her & her mom would have actual sex together, but I can def see them sharing a dildo and bumping butts"

We spent all day Sunday making jokes about her & her mother "bumping butts" haha

Silly Girl said...

@Amy, that's brilliant, 1099 her ass! Not to be confused with ass to ass....

Seachica said...

Once again, CDAN teaches me that I'm much more innocent than I think.

Thanks everyone. Now I'll be picturing LiLo and the White Oprah bumping asses all day.

katydid said...

Completely agree I said those exact words to my hubby he said it looked liked a doll house! When she got the text from Lindsay saying she was on a stretcher I laughed out loud! That designer was duped.

Sandy said...

Bravo and the design companies lost no money on this, and Lohan knows it, so she has played another mark with impunity. Does make the network, the producers and the designers looks like idiots, though.

Mango said...

Wow, Lindsay is such a fuck up that she couldn't get her shit together enough to make a handful of appearances for the decorator show. It's like she gets off on breaking the rules. Like they don't apply to her.

I saw the commercial for what I guess what the second or final episode of Million Dollar Decorators and the British woman decorator was saying something like, "Lindsay was in an accident and all I can think of is, I must get to her!!! *sob*"

Whose decorator gets so emotionally involved that they must rush off when their client is in a fender bender? I doubt Dina was as shook up as the decorator lady was, lol.

Jeannine @ Small and Chic said...

It stuck me as so pathetic that she sent a text asking Kathryn to come to the hospital?

No friends? No significant others? You ask your decorator to come? Oh wait, the decorator has a TV crew following her around. Now I get it.

Frufra said...

Thanks all, you broke it to me gently. Seachica, who knew, right???

nudibelle said...

wait wait wait! the bitch stole and sold the furniture!!!!!???!!!!!!!

smh lmfaoooooo
shes on another level here

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

That's right, White Oprah and Ali did have a reality show, but I didn't know it was about Ali trying to start a music career.

You know, Lindsay's 2005-ish CD went platinum, seems like a lifetime ago. If either one of them sold a CD now, it would probably come with a virus that steals your credit card information and sends it straight to Lindsay! Allegedly.

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

I just watched the episode. It's pretty bad when the longest scene with Lindsay in it is waiting for the designer to arrive at the shop where they have a meeting!

Also, I'm not seeing all that much there. Either the pieces were $10k each, they did rooms they didn't show, or much of that $250k refers to designer fees and installation of floors and curtains.

Mala Propism said...

Still waiting to see how she gets out of the jail sentence for tax evasion. Apparently, she has never heard about Wesley Snipes. You can slip out of LA jail time if you're a celeb, but it's not as easy when it's the IRS and Federal pen.
