Readers at this site were the first to know that Lindsay Lohan was calling her wealthy friends from Betty Ford and begging them for money because she is, despite denials, broke. Looks like nobody wanted to invest in her future because now she’s begging the people at Betty Ford to give her the discount they give to “indigents.” That’s less than $10,000 for the full treatment. So far, no decision from the center. (Does that mean she’ll be washing dishes?)

    Lindsay this isn’t the 99 cents store of rehab, pay the amount or go to another place you can afford. The rest of us look at the price first and the treatment second.

    Lindsay can get rehab far cheaper if she goes to an every-person’s hospital, and does the inpatient thing.

    On the other hand, she can sell some clothes/jewelry/shoes and come up with the $28,000 or whatever it costs.

    I agree. I think we have less patience for her ‘poverty’, because we’ve seen her waste money and steal from others. Even Tori Spelling swallowed her pride to have yard sales.

    Getting her finances in order is part of her rehabilitation process. She was advised on how to accomplish this by e.g. removing her mother from the payroll. I don’t see this girl is making any progress really. She tries to cut corners by going cheap on those who can help and not doing anything with those she can save on. Lindsay is already failing…

    Betty Ford and all rehab centers are virtually worthless. Most celebs go right back into the habit after getting out. Linds needs to go into a loving home with a no-nonsense motherly type to love her, discipline her, teach her, dry her out, healthy food, long talks, etc. This grammy would do it for maybe about $3000 per month. It would have to be just the right person and if this failed, that’s it. finis.

    La-Lohan wants a volume discount. Makes sense to me.

    Indy, do you also breast-feed? Cause I might be interested.

    let her go to the county like everybody else who doesn’t have money; doesn’t she have health insurance?

    How about just not spending all your friggin money on drugs, alcohol, partying, cars, clothes, clothes, clothes, purses, shoes, shoes, purses, hair extensions, make-up, flying to Aspen, hotels, jewelry, oh…and drugs!

    I recall seeing this spoiled brat druggie on one of those celeb shows proudly showing off entire ROOMS full of racks and racks and piles and piles of expensive designer clothes and shoes and purses that she even admitted to not even having worn most of them.

    Anybody that stoopud with money has no business begging ANYBODY to cut them some slack on what they sell. That is a BUSINESS and the price is the price. Pay up or get the hell out!

    How about go home and sit amongst your piles of overpriced crap and go cold turkey like so many have before you (including me, back in the late 60’s). How do you do it? Simple.. you just never DO IT AGAIN. SAME WITH SMOKING CIGARETTES…just stop doing it! I quit in 1969 @ a pack and a half a day and never took another drag/puff…whatever. Same with drugs. I did it for my son, and never looked back. It has nothing to do with will power, and everything to do with common sense. Make a decision and DO IT. Stop expecting the world to bail you out when you waste riches most people never get a chance to even SEE in their lifetimes. No pity here!

    I put her in the same catagory with those losers Heidi and Spencer who are now saying they wasted something like 11 million! Someone should take them out back behind the woodshed and shoot them for being that stoopud! (Take Lindsey with ya).

    “Broke” my ass. I hope that before BF gets taken in by her “poor me act” they discover that design house ‘Sass & Bide’ recently confirmed that Lindsay bought $28,000.00 worth of dresses, shoes, bags & accessories via their online boutique and had it shipped to her home… while she was AT Betty Ford!

    Gee, Lindz… Maybe like, you could like return it all and you can like, afford a big ol’ chunk of your rehab bill?

    Nahhh…. it’s way funner the other way, huh.

  14. By strom

    She has much jew in her blood but not brain. BF prices are probably a rip but they should make her sign a legal note for what she owes and pay it with interest after she starts earning again….this is so simple its obvious its a scam.

  15. By Bettye Bluejay
    On November 5, 2010 at

    At $7/hr. Lindsay will be washing dishes full time for 2 years. If BF gives her the discount, they will be the biggest enablers of all time.

    TO: ANOTHER LOHAN: I’m busting. Not only are my tear ducts watering from laughing, but now my mammary glands feel strangely full of some white substance. Blimey !!!

    Seriously?? She bought $28K worth of stuff at Sass & Bide while AT Betty Ford? Are you kidding me? And she’s so broke she wants a discount? I hope they have someone reading your site.

  20. By Denise
    On November 5, 2010 at

    Who knows, maybe she’s eligible for “frequent flier” miles and rates a discount.

  21. By Reta
    On November 5, 2010 at

    Why does she even HAVE computer/internet access while in rehab? She should not have access to ANYTHING on the “outside” including PHONES! I know on “Celebrity Rehab” they take away their phones when they come in, and there are no computers they can access. It would be pretty stupid for ANY of these places to allow that kind of behavior, knowing these people have problems with excesses of self indulgence. What time does the Pity Party start?

    ^^^You watch a lot of reality tv. Not much of a life, huh? Anyhoo, didn’t you say that you have friends who like to use drugs, but that you, yourself like to be free of drugs “SOMETIMES”?

    Since you claim to only respect people or watch people on TV who have been decent ALL their lives. I thought that was hypocritical.

    I guess your friends’ dealers are all white and Harvard educated, and don’t make money off of the misery of others. What kind of friends do you have and you know that they use? We’ll get you the Nobel Prize!

    Keep living!

  23. By Reta
    On November 5, 2010 at

    WHAT THE HOLY HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT??? I don’t DO drugs and haven’t since I went cold turkey on my OWN in 1969. WHAT an ass! You must be brain dead! And NO, I have no friends who use any type of drugs, maybe something for arthritis over the counter. And NO I don’t watch a lot of reality TV, but do see bits and pieces from time to time, as most people have. What is YOUR excuse for being on a “gossip site” as if YOU’RE any better than me for watching reality TV! I DARE you to find ONE QUOTE of mine where I said ANY OF THE ABOVE you fucking moron dumbass.
    Your second paragraph also makes absolutely NO SENSE AT ALL. Exactly WHAT do you mean by “Decent”? YOU sound like the judgemental one here. I don’t make it a point to go around determining who is “decent” or not.
    You are sounding all the more like “strom” again…I can SMELL the duncity leaking from my keyboard!

    Who are these people who are tracking the movements of regular posters. I have a general idea about what Indy or Reta said a month or so ago, but I could not go back and find a comment one of them posted ages ago, nor would I want to spend my time.

    Reta, someone pulled that crap on me, and it was a pretty lame attempt to show me up.

    These people are either employees of Janet or her Webmaster, or real losers with absolutely nothing better to do, and maybe some serious mental issues.

  25. By Reta
    On November 5, 2010 at

    Sebastian, I believe it is the latter. I have been TRYING to tell you about the crazy people here, but you keep defending Gerard for some reason. I think this one however is strom. I’ve hit too close to home with him so he’s out for revenge. There have been several postings lately aimed at me under different monikers but all having the same “flavor”. I’m not easily fooled, and can smell those racist bastards many states away. This is only a bad sleight of hand trick done in full view of the cameras with the lights on.

  26. By strom
    On November 6, 2010 at

    Nope, people are now using my name for truly off the wall posts. I could care less about other posters or tracking them as it was put. Must be some real loonies out there.

    Whether Lindsay can afford treatment at The Betty Ford Center is not as valuable a question of why her personal business is being exposed to the general public while she is in treatment.It seems to me that the reality of her being in rehabilition should go under the radar of complete privacy, just as well as her medical and financial records as an inpatient. I’m just saying!!

  28. By Reta's Rainbow
    On November 6, 2010 at

    Reta said Oct 7:

    “I think this is going to make me stop watching her show, no matter HOW many cool comedians are on it! And I don’t give a shit if he’s black and she’s white, it’s not ABOUT that. [It’s about having been a decent person ALL your life…]”

    You go beserk when you get a taste of your own meds.

    Damn, so you are approx in your fucking sixties, and life has succumbed to this? Shit. You must be in the fucking early stages of dementia.

  30. By SebastianCanada

    Reta, if what you suggest is true there are only two possibilities I can think of:

    1) the captain is someone who works for Janet and is messing around, either with or without the knowledge of his superiors and employer.

    2) the captain is some twisted nut job who thinks he is playing wonderful head-games.

    Either would be too pathetic, and of no concern to me. All that this crap is doing is creating white noise. When the noise gets too loud, or regular posters stop making comments, I will just stop visiting this site.

    I have seen this sort of thing happen before. It is basically cyber-bullying, though I think using the term “bullying” is giving the act and the perpetrators way too much significance. I think it is more a case of typing practice between masturbation sessions.

    You’re right again Sebastian. And the quote referred to attributed to me is true and was about the “artist” “Fitty Cent” When I was talking about him not having been a “decent” person all his life due to the fact he had been a gang-banger and indeed had even been shot 9 times himself. Making a name off crime and rapping about the illegal things you have done as a thug all your formative life, and now he sits back and crows about his riches, showing off his diamonds and bragging about his past. No, I WOULDN’T call him, or ANY of the so-called “Rappers” “decent” people, would you? Decent people don’t shoot at unarmed people, don’t kill over dope, don’t run around with many guns on them, and pants down under their asses, and cheap looking hideous “jewelry’ and knocking up as many dumb “baby-mamas” as they can like they’re in a race to make the most baby mamas.

    As for me, no, my brain is perfectly fine, and I am younger than your guess, altho that’s none of your business. You know, ageism is just as nasty as racism. There is no reason whatsoever to assume that because someone reaches a certain age their brain cells nessessarily leap off the cliffs. My own grandmother lived to 97 and was sharp as a tack to the end, with a great memory, even able to tell great jokes.
    Try not to be such a colossal asshole in life and you may get farther and even find yourself smiling once in a while. If you can quit jacking off long enough that is.

    I admire people who got rich the old fashioned way…through hard work and actual talent. Lindsay got handed a glamorous life she didn’t deserve then threw it away on drugs and cheap sex and now I’m supposed to feel sorry for her? Eff her, there are poor people all over America who never had half the chances she did and I feel sorry for them not her. She can eat shit as far as I’m concerned.

  33. By SebastianCanada
    On November 7, 2010 at

    Boo Hoo, right!

    Lohan is one of the worst examples of someone rich and famous being oblivious to what is happening in the real world, but there are many more who, in little ways, demonstrate their total insensitivity to the suffering that exists in America right now. If I have to here Whoopi Goldberg or BaBa WaWa take up another five minutes on The View defending one of their rich and famous and brain-dead friends, I will have a stroke!

    I always wondered what the “indigent” rate was at Betty Ford. $10,000 out of pocket for indigent. There’s no rehab for regular folks……they just recover at home…oh, and those pesky meetings that are free. What a concept. Lindsey and her team of gutter trash should check into it.

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?


    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
