This week on Lindsay, Lindsay Lohan continued to deal with family drama, struggle with her sobriety, and shockingly, exhibited no ounce of work ethic whatsoever.
Here’s what you need to know about this week’s Lindsay:
Dina Lohan is “writing” an autobiography
And Orange Oprah is so unabashedly open about having a ghostwriter that she’s basically the anti-Aviva Drescher. It’s almost a shame that all that the book will really have to offer is lame Parent Trap puns and a clearance-bin companion for Lynne Spears’ memoir.
Lindsay skips work to hibernate (again)
Thanks to her supreme generosity, Lindsay agrees to appear on the cover of Elle Indonesia‘s anniversary issue—“just for exposure.” But at 3pm on the day of the shoot—three hours after the noon call time—Lohan’s rep shows up alone, and suggests that the shoot be postponed to a later date because Lindsay needs to catch up on sleep.
“That bitch, Lindsay! I can’t do it tomorrow because I have other things on my schedule,” says fashion editor Anindita Saryuf, who flew two days to attend the shoot. “And she wants a comeback?”
Really great job of making people want to work with you again, LiLo!
Lindsay is working on a “covert” project
When the Elle Indonesia team asks Matt Harrell why it was so important for Lindsay to sleep in all day instead of showing up, he responds by saying that she was up late working on a “covert” project he couldn’t disclose any further details on. Um, does this covert project involve Jaegerbombs and lines of blow off a restroom toilet seat?
Don’t call it a comeback, girl. No, but like, seriously. Don’t.
Lindsay hates natural lighting
Photographer Eric Silverberg, tapped by Elle to shoot the ginger starlet, informs Lindsay that he only works with natural lighting. But after she insists on five wardrobe changes, there’s not enough natural light left—thus extending the shoot to three. whole. days. Thanks to the missed deadlines, designers begin asking for their clothes back and Lindsay has to pluck from her own wardrobe. (“If I could list all the shoots that I should get credit for as ‘co-stylist’ it would be a full novel,” she says).
Rather than apologizing, Lindsay blames Silverberg for making the shoot so difficult and advises him to work with artificial lighting in the future. Later, when privately asked about what it was like to work with the Mean Girls star, Silverberg straight up laughs into the camera.
Lindsay still has a thing for knives
Back in 2007, photos of Lohan and Vanessa Minnillo posing provocatively with knives hit the Web. But the backlash clearly didn’t resonate with the star: In this week’s episode, Lindsay steps behind the camera to film four of her friends playing a game of “Dare” (who needs “Truth,” right?) As an open bottle of tequila is passed around, one Einstein pierces another’s ear with a big knife. Did we mention this all happens at 7:20am on the day of Lindsay’s rescheduled Elle Indonesia shoot?
Is this the type of covert project she was talking about?
Lindsay’s road to recovery includes a detour to the club
Lindsay is offered $100,000 for a two-hour appearance at Foxwoods Casino’s Halloween party. Drinks are flowing, Dina’s booty is bouncing, and Lindsay continues to insist she can stay sober around drunk people because of how much she loves to dance and socialize. Of course she’s already admitted to relapsing and missing AA meetings.
How encouraging is it that the only member of Lindsay’s “sober crew” who gets camera time admits he “had a drink here and there” and is not “a model AA member”? Not very.
BONUS THING WE LEARNED THIS WEEK: Lindsay has a giant print of her second album cover framed in her living room
Perhaps to serve as a subtle reminder to viewers that they’ll get far more insight into the troubled star’s life by listening to that record than by watching this entire docu-series? #JusticeForALittleMorePersonal(Raw)
