There were rumors for a time that once Lindsay Lohan was out of rehab, she'd make a transition back into Hollywood the way most celebs who've faced their demons have - through reality television.
A lot shows were tossed around, but one that we've just learned was under serious consideration was Donald Trump'sCelebrity Apprentice. Upon announcing the upcoming celebs this season, Trump was asked to confirm or deny that Lindsay was in the running for this latest season. The Donald admitted:
"[The Lohans] approached me, and we did talk about it. It's just not the right time. Lindsay has to straighten herself out first. And I know Dina, she's a really lovely woman. I don't think she gets very much credit — she's tried. I know Michael a little bit. It could happen in the future, but right now we need to see Lindsay get straightened out."
A sensible argument, Trumpster. The last thing you want on your show is an unstable personality who's a risk of flying off the handle at any moment and making an embarrassment out of your empire.
By the way, exactly who's idea was it to hire Gary Busey this season?
As the sun rose over the dusty plains of Rancho Mirage, Lindsay Lohan was awoken this morning by the sound of birds chirping and her Blackberry blowing up like Hiroshima. As she scrolled through her messages in her morning haze, she was thrilled to see so many well wishes from "friends" in regards to today's crucial probation hearing.
One person who didn't bother to call was Judge Elden Fox, as we hear he is preparing to read Linds the riot act when she steps foot in his courtroom. Many had speculated that her time in rehab might have soften the judge up and that he might consider giving her a lighter sentence for her crimes. (Right now, she faces as little as 30 days in jail for failing her drug test or a full year should the judge revoke her probation entirely.)
But that just ain't so. Sources suggest that the Probation Dept. is putting the pressure on Judge Fox to make an example out of LiLo and recommends he give her some form of jail time. They're looking for her to get the 30 day sentence, but Judge Fox gets the final call.
Things aren't looking good for you, girl. We hope her people are preparing her for the worst.
Sir Elton John shared some of his advice for Lindsay Lohan, who is currently watching Mean Girls in the movie room at the Betty Ford Clinic, while on the red carpet to his AIDS Foundation fundraiser in Manhattan.
One thing really resonates with us and we hope it does for her to. Elton says: Ditch the fam!
And we agree!
