Lindsay Lohan To Extend Rehab Until Chelsea Handler Appearance

Lindsay Lohan wants to make sure she is well behaved until at least she leaves the country, so would like to extend her rehab a few more days until after she guest hosts Chelsea Handler's show next week. I think she is scared of what might happen if she is left alone for a weekend in LA with nothing to do but go out and party. I know, I know, she could just stay inside in her hotel room or go to AA meetings, but Lindsay is not like that. She would go out and probably would get in trouble by day 3 of going out every night. She thinks she will be better off staying in some kind of rehab until the show and then flying to Venice where she thinks she can stay on the straight and narrow because she knows no one and then go to NYC and everything will be great. Uh huh. She also chose to ignore the 74 negative reviews her movie got and only read the positive one from Variety. So, reality, is still not Lindsay's strong point.

Still, the fact that she is aware she would be better off there is a HUGE step in her case. I can't bash on that. Just hope she doesn't lose her shit once she gets to Venice.

My fav news about Lohan today is that she will have a casting rendez-vous for the next Affleck directed movie

Hannah, you said what I was going to say. It's a damn start! Sobriety is scary as hell! When you're used to NOT dealing with reality, it's almost as if you're a newborn: you have to learn how to cope. It's scary! I wish her the best, but I fear the worst with th *family* of hers.

Maybe this isn't just for show and shes actually trying. If she didn't hit rock bottom she came close and that's when a lot of junkies start to wake up and realize they f'ed up and need to change

auntliddy said...

I hope she stays well too, but hosting a show? Isnt that waaaaayyy above her pay grade?

Kels said...

I'm not so sure she's going to make it. Is she going to live with her mom? If so there's no point. I hope she gets the help she needs. Just like Amanda.

It's Chelsea Handler's show. That's below everyone's IQ.
I'm with everyone, it's a start. Good for her.

HannahBanana said...

It's ginna be a hard road, but maybe just maybe 90 days finally got her to see the light. Now if somebody could keep her parents away from her, she might have a chance...

Good for her! Sobriety is a hard road, glad to hear she is working to keep it.

Good for her (never thought I would say this). She is making positive changes and realising the pitfalls of her past.
You cannot be using and abusing your body for as long and as hard as she has without having to make big adjustments when trying to stay sober.
Every small change in the right direction is a good thing and should be applauded.
Small steps. They all count.

Get away from your parents Lilo! Run, Lindsay, run!

It's me said...

So she knows she needs more rehab and is doing just that? Good for her. Maybe there is still a little bit of hope for her.

+1 @ It's Just U. You said everything I wanted to say.

MISCH said...

Is she hiding from her mother ?

derek harvey said...

good for her and the movie did get pretty bad reviews but most critics said her performance was pretty decent. They did point out that the bad plastic surgery is distracting---hopefully that can be reversible...

Amy Sliger said...

Sounds like she finally has her head on straight. Good for her. I hope she does turn herself around.

Brittany said...

I hope that lindsay has had an awaking. Run from your parents girl. Change the way everyone sees you this year! Make this year the start of your new life, instead of it being the year everyone thinks you will die. Addiction is a horrible thing, and it's usually because there is sadness inside of a persons soul that they are trying to mask. Lets send positive vibes her way, at least she is trying.

JoElla said...

I wish her well. I really do. Hopefully she can be well.

Tina Mallette said...

I consider her asking to stay in rehab longer as a sign Lindsay finally gets what her problem is and what causes it.

She really should be checking into a Sober House next so she can make a slow transition ir I hope she hires a sober coach but haven't her greedy needy family got her signed up for a reality show?

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

She's looking really good in that balcony pic...hope she can make it stick.

Iceberg said...

An unusually smart choice for her, but if she's that afraid of a few day,s she is most definitely not ready to leave rehab.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

This is pretty much going to be Lindsay all next week.

Elissa said...

@Iceberg, I completely agree. It may appear to be a good sign that she realizes that those few days could be dangerous, but to me it looks like a red flag. She has a plan to keep her sober for those few days before the guest-hosting gig, but nothing in place for AFTER that?

I'd like to think that the full 90-day rehab stint may have made a difference, but I fear there is still hope for my 2013 Dead Pool list.

K. Madelyn said...

@Elissa: hope not, but the period just after leaving rehab can be deadly. They are detoxed from all the bad stuff, but still have that addictive brain that makes it so hard to turn down an opportunity. And too many of them just pick up at the amount where they left off. Hence the cases of fatal liquor poisoning, drug ODs, etc.

This is why sober coaches/houses were invented, I guess.
Weird if there's not a sober companion in her treatment plan; it would seem the obvious next step for someone like LL especially, who just can't stand being alone.

mistang said...

If it's true that her mom couldn't call or at lest contact was reduced, that could have made a huge difference. This could go big for Chelsea's show either way. The ratings to either see Lilo crash and burn and many moments to be made fun of for weeks OR she does okay and people start to root for her again. The show will get a pretty big boost in attention. And of course, so will Lindsay. A way to make an entrance.

Dingle Barry said...

That's a grown up decision for her, great news! You have to keep in mind that this is the first time she's experienced sobriety since a young teenager. Is she scared? Absolutely. Should she be? I'd be afraid if she wasn't. This is a positive step for her. I give her a lot of credit. Is she going to Europe to get away from her family? That's another smart move.

NaughtyNurse said...

And again...I am not liking this cynical new Enty. This is not the bacon loving fattie we all know and love. I agree with the others who say, "it's a good start!" I hope Lindsay Lohan is really trying to stay sober--if for no other reason than I am sick to death of reading gossip about her.

Maggie said...

At least she realizes she can't go to LA alone but the girl needs a coach or someone there to watch her 24/7 who won't enable her to go back to drugs or her old stealing ways, and if she goes to Europe with her mom I don't think she will stay sober.

L said...

I am with @NaughtyNurse - I have always kept mum about the theories and speculations about the enties... but the person writing this post is a bitter and sad excuse for a human being. for God sake - LiLo does one thing right after years and we still bash her?
not sure who is sadder.. LiLo or Jax.. ehm sorry I meant this Enty :P
