Lohan Still Crazy as Ever
Two recent developments fell onto to current Lindsay Lohan situation in the past few days, and, as one would predict, they are not only ridiculous, but just point to how far she really has fallen in the past couple of years.
The young actress, or whatever she’s paid to do these days, started breaking back into the news after she stunned the Today Show, by canceling on Matt Lauer only a short while before the interview was set to begin. A steamed Lauer took to the stage and instead of holding back and making up an excuse for her, denounced Lohan saying that she had in fact simply stood him up and refused to appear on the show. Seems fair enough until it was revealed that Lohan’s representatives insisted that she be paid upwards of $100,000 just to appear on the show.
I know her story’s entertaining and all, mainly because we are all wondering how far she can fall, but that’s just ridiculous. I can’t imagine a show like the Today Show needing to pay that much to get any has-been celebrity on, much less one who continually flakes on everything she does, including her rehab plans (more on that in a bit). Plus, what kind of audience does she think the show even has? Do her representatives really think that people are pining to hear her speak about all the terrible things she’s done to herself and her family in the recent months? If so, she needs to get some people who are more connected to the pulse of entertainment.
On top of all of this, Lohan one-upped herself by failing a court-administered drug test while she’s on house arrest. As embarrassing as this would have been, she made matters worse by claiming that a favorite tea of her contains alcohol, and insists that she hasn’t taken a drink of wine, beer or liquor since being on house arrest. But we can take her word for it, right? I mean it’s not like she stole a necklace and lied about it, garnering her house arrest in the first place or anything.
Even as I’m writing this now, I’m sick of hearing all of these celebrities complain about their lives, and “how hard they have it.” Just like the NFL athletes looking to expand their already fat wallets, you people need to grow up and take a look around you. I’d love to see what would have happened to Lohan if she were simply some minimum-wage worker struggling to get by. You people need to take off your blinders and realize how hard real Americans work, or at least how much they have to pay for it when they make the exact same mistakes. Stop crying and whining, own up to what you’ve done and move on, this is just getting ridiculous.
