This seems like a pretty insincere reason to give up eating meat, but we suppose if it benefits them both, then we don't see why not!
Sources at the Betty Ford Center are reporting that Lindsay Lohan, who is facing serious financial woes due to her current treatment for drug addiction at the rehab, is keen to take PETA up on it's offer to cover $50,000 of her payment if she becomes a vegetarian!
The insider confirms:
"Lindsay is seriously considering the offer from PETA. There is thoughtful consideration about PETA's very generous offer. Lindsay loves animals, and looks at it as a 'win-win' since being a vegetarian is a healthier lifestyle that she is striving for. Lindsay is making arrangements to make payments to the Betty Ford Center to pay for her bill. Betty Ford does work with patients who have financial problems and are unable to pay the bill in full. This is a very common practice of Betty Ford. Lindsay realizes that Betty Ford is giving her an opportunity and essentially taking a chance on her, given her past track record. She would love it if PETA would offer to pay her entire rehab bill. However, she isn't expecting that to happen, and is just grateful for the offer PETA has made. Lindsay seems to have really grown up a lot since her last appearance in court last Friday. Lindsay isn't expecting, nor does she want a free ride, which is a very good sign for her recovery. Lindsay is taking responsibility and seems to be working the 12 steps of AA."
We're pleased to hear that Lindsay is taking her treatment so seriously, and if she's sincere about a full lifestyle change, then we applaud her efforts.
She's already kicking the drug habit, so she might as well add meat to the list, as well!
