Lindsay Lohan Is Serious About Rehab

Actress Lindsay Lohan reacts following her sentencing by Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel during a probation status hearing in Beverly Hills, California on July 6, 2010. Revel sentenced Lohan to 90 days in jail Tuesday after ruling she violated probation in a 2007 drug case by failing to attend court-ordered alcohol education classes.

Ha, like hell! She’s trying to avoid jailtime by checking into a “sober living house” in West Hollywood called Pickford Lofts. Dina Lohan, Samantha Ronson, and one of Lindsay’s rumored lovers, Eilat Anschel, were seen visting her at various times throughout the day. The Lofts’ website touts itself as a place which “strives to offer a safe haven so that those in all stages of recovery can develop skills that will aid them in their journey of sobriety.” It was founded by Los Angeles attorney Robert Shapiro, who is expected to testify on Lohan’s behalf before she turns herself in on the 20th.

I imagine Shapiro’s job is convince the judge that Lindsay will be better off in rehab than jail, which I think is partly true. If she won’t be offered any sort of counseling in jail, she should go to rehab first, since most programs include a theme of accepting personal responsibility for one’s actions. If you throw Lindsay into jail, she’s just going to be depressed and defensive and spend the whole time thinking about how she doesn’t deserve to be there. If she goes to rehab first – and if it’s in a boarding-house situation where she can’t leave – maybe she’ll actually understand why her drunken cracked-out ass should have been in lock-up three years ago. But on Lindsay’s part, this is the same type of move as finding God before you’re up for parole. It’s as calculating and superficial as all her proclamations, and if people are really concerned for her welfare, they’ll put her somewhere where she can be de-programmed from all the crap Michael and Dina did to her so that she can be a real person again.
