    Default Lindsay Lohan: Addict or Spoiled

    OK, usually I avoid anything relating to talent like Costco over a 3-day weekend but I have to admit to keeping one eye open in watching the ever developing trainwreck that is Young Hollywood. I'm beginning to wonder if I don't have a tumor on my schadenfreude gland.

    Though I can't really say I have anything against Lindsay, she is starting to remind me of Dana Plato on a bigger budget. On one hand I'll read how Mischa Barton was "hospitalized for a negative reaction to medicine" :yim_rolling_on_the_ and wonder is there a webcam I can subscribe to actually watch publicists like Leslie Sloane Zelnik pull excuses for her dysfunctional clients out of her ass? But on the other, I do know some people who have gone through Promises, where Lindsay/Britney/et al have checked in, even visited a friend while he was at the WLA facility and there were definitely similar signs and tales by the addicts there and some of the events of Lohan's life.

    Sure we all know there are ramifications for someone who's gone the entire new millennium without once hearing the word "no," but could she really have an addiction problem with this not being merely a rouse to pre-empt harsh jail time?

    I read a book recently that was kind of fun called "Charlie Big Potatoes" by Phil Robinson, which was about a young Brit rock critic having a meltdown and having to undergo therapy for substance abuse. Parts of it reminded me of scenes in "Permanent Midnight" by Jerry Stahl, a true story about a Hollywood TV writer's nightmares with both drugs and sobriety.

    It is funny the excuses the publicists make. There was another book, written by such a publicist and consisting of "fiction" based on his own experiences with concocting this stuff, that I reviewed on INTPC once, but I can't remember the name of it now.

    Protest! Why isn't "bitch" one of the options???

    All right. I'll settle for an "all of the above" answer, if you add my prior contribution.

    But that's my last offer.

    I don't know enough about this to make an opinion.

    Hahahah, "real job." Like they don't have real jobs! They make a hell of a lot more than you, and probably work longer, harder hours at times!
