A mess on the loose...kind of....
Well...while most of us were sound to sleep in the wee hours of this morning--or in my case, up watching reruns of Roseanne because I took a massive nap late in the day yesterday--Lohan was getting released from jail. That's right, as suspected she only served 13 days of a 90 day sentence due to 'good behavior' and is now off to some rehab facility at UCLA Medical Center. Here's what's pissing me off about this not surprising act: First, she serves only 13 days of jail time for REPEATED violations that involve alcohol and drug abuse. She's been in trouble for drunk driving, for violating terms of probation, etc....then she only serves 13 days due to 'good behavior'. OF COURSE she's on 'good behavior' IN JAIL. She has nowhere to get drugs and no way to get all drunked up and go drive somewhere. Anywhere other than Hollywood, she'd be spending quite a bit more time in the clink for this. People are saying that she will make the next big 'comeback' like Britney Spears...first of all, I would call what Britney had, the inkling of a comeback....have you heard anything about her recently? Didn't think so. And maybe I'd believe that a smidge more if Lindsay had some glimmer of talent. I've yet to see that. I will put money down on a bet that in less than a year she's in trouble again. Anyway, I rant. Here's what People Magazine had to say, "She was released at 1:35 a.m.," Los Angeles Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said outside the jail. "She has been sent directly to her next destination, which is a treatment center. And she will now be under the supervision of the L.A. County probation department. This concludes her custody." Seriously you mess of a girl, get your shit together....the world is sick of hearing about you.
