Dina Lohan has been arrested for driving under the influence! What would her daughter Lindsay say about this? Even more interesting, what would her ex-husband Michael Lohan say about this? Her blood alcohol level was said to be over twice the legal limit! TMZ has the scoop:
Lindsay Lohan’s 50-year-old mother was pulled over on the Northern State Parkway by New York State Police around 11 pm Thursday night … after she was allegedly going 77mph in a 55 in her white BMW.
During the stop, cops say she appeared intoxicated — and tested her blood alcohol level, which registered at .20 — more than twice the legal limit of .08. According to officials, “Lohan made an allegation that she was injured during the course of the arrest” … but when medical personnel responded to the scene and determined she was fine, Dina “recanted her claim.”
Lohan was hauled to a nearby station where she was booked on two counts of driving while intoxicated and one count of speeding. After posing for a squinty-eyed mug shot, Lohan he was released to a sober 3rd party. So far, no word on WHO picked up Lohan from the station. Lohan is due back in court later this month.
Can she try and blame THIS on someone else? Surely Lindsay got that from somewhere…
Rehabbed actress Lindsay Lohan decided to skip the premiere of her new movie The Canyons at the Venice Film Festival in Italy in a bid to focus solely on her “health and well-being” following her latest stint in rehab.
The Mean Girls actress had been expected to join her director Paul Schrader, screenwriter Brett Easton Ellis and co-star James Deen at Friday’s event to promote the erotic flick, but ended up citing personal reasons for not making the trip to Europe.
During a press conference before the screening, Schrader made it clear that questions about his leading lady’s personal issues were “off the table”, although he praised Lohan for her work and compared her to Marilyn Monroe. Ugh, yes this really happened.
Now Lohan, who completed a 90-day court-ordered stay at a treatment facility in Malibu, California early last month, has reached out to fans online to explain her absence from the Venice Film Festival for herself.
In a blog post titled About Venice, she wrote, “Along with the positive messages and words of support of The Canyons at VFF, I am sending my own to the cast, producers and the amazing Paul Schrader. I am so grateful for the extraordinary experience of being a part of this film. Unfortunately, I have to clear up these reports. I was never confirmed to attend. Of course, I would have enjoyed returning to that wonderful city and being a part of this amazing event, but my focus is on my health and well-being. Plain and simple, it is of the utmost importance.”
Lohan also included a postcard snap of the Italian city in the message, with the caption, “To Venice, with love… – L”.
The actress reportedly chose not to fly to Italy on the advice of Oprah Winfrey, who interviewed the star for a candid TV chat days after she was released from rehab to deal with alcohol and drug issues.
Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan is determined to stay clean and sober after her sixth rehab stint because she finally accepts she is addicted to booze and chaos after her most recent 90-day, court-ordered time at Betty Ford and Cliffside this summer.
The Mean Girls actress sat down for an interview with Oprah Winfrey just after she was released from a treatment facility in Malibu, California earlier this month, and the interview aired on Sunday night.
Lohan kicked off the hour-long special by recalling her past rehab stints and legal run-ins, and revealed her life started unraveling in 2007, when she was arrested twice. She told the talk show titan, “I got a second DUI within two months of leaving Promises… I didn’t take Promises seriously.”
She continued, “There are moments, at that age for me, I related on and off but I didn’t really acknowledge that there could be an issue… I’d just turned 21, I wanted to be able to have fun. I did the same thing again.”
She served treatment time at the strict Cirque Lodge clinic in Utah and then found herself behind bars for violating her probation in 2010, but it was only when she was ordered to return to rehab for 90 days earlier this year that she pledged to turn her life around once and for all.
Lohan said, “It’s always such a circus when I go to court; it’s just so humiliating… and I think I just hit a wall. I was just tired. When I spoke to Shawn [Holley] I just said, ‘I think the best option is for me to go to treatment and take these three months to really just take care of myself and find myself’. I don’t think in the past I’ve ever fully surrendered to the fact that I just need to shut up and listen. In this case I wasn’t fighting at all… I came into it just really willing and really craving more spirituality, really open and ready to get really honest.”
She also blamed her addiction issues on the chaos that was her home life. She said, “[Alcohol] in the past was the gateway to other things, for me… I tried cocaine with alcohol… It allowed me to drink more. I think that’s why I did it when I did it… I snorted it. I’ve never injected anything other than getting B12 shots. It went hand in hand with drinking.”
She added, “And I grew up in a very chaotic home and there were moments of everything just being wonderful and perfect, and then things being so uncontrollable and chaotic. It’s something that people go through and unfortunately I have waited too long to face it even though I’ve been going to see a therapist for years and years.”
Is she finally serious? We will just have to wait and see, won’t we?
During her 60 day stay at the Cliffside Rehab Center in Malibu, not only did Lindsay Lohan watch all of her own movies for entertainment, she made the other patients watch alongside her.
A source revealed, “There was more than once when Lindsay would rent or buy a movie on iTunes that she’d starred in. She basically forced me to watch that crappy movie ‘I Know Who Killed Me’ with her, the one where she plays a stripper.”
The source added, “She’s such an attention seeker that she didn’t think it was weird at all to watch her own movies. Everyone else thought it was really embarrassing of her to do that! But whatever. It was like she was trying to relive a time when she was actually a working actress.”
We can understand the need to watch Mean Girls because that was actually a decent movie. Perhaps she’s missing all of the acting talent that she used to have. It’s hidden in one of those movies somewhere, we’re sure of it.
It sounds to us like she spent most of her rehab time either watching her own flicks or online shopping. She had racked up a $5,000 per day shopping habit all on some NYC guy’s dime. Did they even treat her in rehab or was it like a vacation for rich people?
It looks like Lindsay Lohan has effectively replaced one addiction with another. She checked in for treatment in rehab for a drug addiction and now that she’s out, she’s completely addicted to something else. But, there is good news… This addiction won’t come close to killing her — unless it’s financially. Lohan is now said to be addicted to shopping for things on the internet.
While in treatment, she spent a lot of time browsing various shopping websites and purchasing insane amounts of merchandise. Her online spending got so bad that she even spent as much as $5,000 per day!
A source said, “Lindsay would shop online ALL day. It was like an addiction. She would drop $5,000 a day no problem. Mostly on clothes.”
The spy went on to say, “The patients and the staff were so annoyed by all of the boxes being delivered to her. Eventually the clinic ran out of room to house all her purchases and told her she couldn’t order any other items. It was crazy! Lindsay bragged about some super rich guy in New York City that let her use his credit card.”
The source added, “We never asked who he was or why he would do that, but she didn’t seem to have a hesitation about using his money for whatever she wanted.”
Could it have been Vikram Chatwal or some other unsuspecting rich guy?
Lindsay Lohan has sat down with talk show titan Oprah Winfrey for her first post-rehab interview. Sneak peeks of the interview are leaking online which show the troubled actress quite possibly finally taking responsibility for her actions.
Prior to her release from rehab at the Cliffside Center in Malibu, Lohan was instructed to make a list of friends. Some of those friends were said to be a bad influence on her, so she was supposed to part ways with the negative influences in her life. As you may already know, Lindsay has said no to that and will continue being friends with whomever she likes.
Now, in her interview with Oprah, Lohan has admitted to being her own worst enemy. Us Magazine reports:
In a sneak peek clip from the much anticipated sit-down, Winfrey drills Lohan with questions such as, “Do you think you can turn it around? . . . What is it you’re addicted to?”
Wearing a conservative orange dress and serious expression on her face, Lohan tells the media mogul, “I’m my own worst enemy, and I know that.”
We have to admit, we are curious to hear her answers to some of these questions. She was reportedly paid millions for this interview for Oprah’s Next Chapter, so we’re wondering if she’s going to be straight up honest with O. What do you think? More importantly, what do you think Lohan is addicted to? Will she tell Winfrey the honest truth? Or will it all be fluff generated to get ratings for her docuseries on the rehabbed actress?
File this one under: That didn’t take long!
After only being out of rehab at the Cliffside Rehab center in Malibu for merely a week, it appears that Lindsay Lohan really couldn’t stay away from the partying scene at all. Reportedly, the rehabbed actress was partying it up with her good friends The Wanted in Los Angeles. And here we were thinking that Lohan wanted to get away from the bright lights of the big city so that she wouldn’t relapse.
Lohan was said to be in attendance at The Wanted’s show in Costa Mesa on Wednesday night. She was happily posing for photographs with Max George — and she was rumored to have dated him, even though he denied it.
After the show, Lohan and George continued to party it up at the Mondrian West Hollywood hotel in Los Angeles. The party caused numerous noise complaints by other guests at the hotel before it was shut down.
Lohan’s rep is already shooting down the partying gossip, saying in a statement, “I highly doubt this is true. Although Lindsay did visit her good friend Max.”
So which is it? Is it true that she partied it up with Max George or not?
