Now that Lindsay Lohan is undergoing a much-needed 30-day
vacation treatment process in one of them star-studded rehab joints on the west coast ( I wonder if each addict has their own personal masseuse?), everyone round these parts has been wondering whether La Lohan will remain attached to the flick Poor Things, even though production was supposed to begin this month. In a statement released by Poor Things producers Shirley MacLaine and Rob Hickman, it appears her role will be put on hold while the problem child gets this little publicity rehab stint out of the way.
The statement goes as follows: "In the spirit of helping Lindsay Lohan and her rehabilitation, we have been asked by Lindsay to comply with her wishes to continue working on Poor Things. We are trying to rearrange the shooting schedule to facilitate her working at the end of the shoot to coincide with the completion of her rehabilitation. We wish her love and the blending of mind, body and spirit." I think it's wonderful that she's getting support, but if Lindsay doesn't know or think she has a problem, and doesn't want or think she needs treatment (other than the fact that it will look good for her "image") then what's the point? See, I tend to think the only way to deal with this wild child is to yank this film right from her. Show her that she can't just do whatever the hell she wants without consequence. Actually, come to think of it, they should make her come live with me for a week; show her much life could really suck. "Oh, you're watching another bootlegged Wonder Years episode, Erik? Should I shoot myself now or wait until you heat up those four day-old Chinese food leftovers?"
