The Lindsay Lohan rehab stay has begun after a last-minute flight from her court-ordered facility, another round of barely-legal rehab shopping, and an embarrassing pre-lockdown interview with Piers Morgan that makes her look completely clueless. For Lohan, denial is indeed just another river in Egypt.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, Lohan was supposed to check in for the 90-day lockdown on Thursday morning.
Instead, while her then-lawyer Mark Heller was making an idiot of himself by telling the judge that she was already checked in, she was being photographed in a shopping mall.
Whether Heller was then canned or just quit in disgust, Lohan’s once and future lawyer Shawn Holley was then quickly re-hired to spend a frantic night trying to get the order switched so that she could check into California’s Betty Ford Center facility without getting arrested for violating the judge’s order to report to Morningside Recovery.
Mere mortals aren’t normally entitled to tell the judge where they’re going, but hey. That’s Hollywood.
As a result of her several brushes with the law, including a theft charge and two impaired driving arrests, and her seeming inability to comply with a court order in order to complete her sentences, Lindsay Lohan will turn 27 in a rehab facility — and that’s assuming that they actually keep her locked down. Betty Ford is the same place where she famously got involved in a scuffle with a staffer.
After six previous stays in rehab — more than 250 days of intensive treatment — she told Piers Morgan that she isn’t a drinker. Instead, as a teen she would actually “pretend to be drunk. And it was more fun.”
She also claimed that she’s done cocaine only four or five times and that apparently the luckiest cops in America caught her the very first time she was ever in her life in possession of cocaine.
“Yes, I don’t like [cocaine.] It reminds me of my dad. I took it four times in a period from about the age of 20 to 23, and I got caught twice.”
And some reporters are calling this frank and refreshing? It’s ridiculous.
I get it, believe me. I understand that addiction eats your brain and that you say what the drug tells you to say so that you can get back to your regularly scheduled using.
And I get it that she can’t make herself out to be a rock star quality drug abuser while her misfortunate lawyer is struggling to keep her happy rear end out of jail.
But c’mon. Don’t wee-wee down my leg and tell me it’s raining.
With denial issues like that, the Betty Ford Center has a genuine challenge with the Lindsay Lohan rehab.
