Lindsay -- Work Can Be Hazardous to Her Health

10/23/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's management team is already lining up projects for the actress as soon as she steps out of rehab in 2011 ... but LiLo's closest friends are concerned that rushing her back into the spotlight could be a dangerous move.

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ, Lohan's team has been devouring movie scripts, furiously setting up meetings, and organizing fashion projects, all in anticipation of LiLo's release from rehab -- January 3, 2011.

But one friend tells us the people who still care about LiLo's well-being feel that she "shouldn’t be working the first week. She shouldn’t be working the first couple months. She needs to be attending daily meetings to stay on track for sobriety." Another adds, “Lindsay needs to focus on herself for some time."

As we previously reported, LiLo has recently expressed concern about her career and her crumbling fashion line. But according to her probation officer, Lindsay also acknowledged that her "lifestyle" is filled with temptation.

Fortunately, Lindsay will have a couple of months to think about her next move.

Get a female sponsor Lindsay and LISTEN to her. You can be a major star IF you get clean and sober. And above all stay that way. Do that and the money problems will disappear. Do it for Lindsay - she deserves it!

"...has been devouring movie scripts..." That is the funniest thing I've read on here in a long time.
Almost sounds like you posted this, or someone told this to you, to make movie execs think she's somehow in demand, so THEY will send movie scripts. You know damn well she doesn't have any movie scripts to "devour". She was scrapping the bottom of the barrel for the last two years, taking anything thrown at her, and that was nothing, except playing a porn star with a company so small, they haven't even secured funding for the movie yet.
Every time they say they will "wait" for Lindsay, I have to laugh. They are GLAD to wait because they don't even have the money to film.

Anyway, whoever wrote/said she had movie scripts to devour is funny!

Let's face it being a narcotics addict is part of the job of being a famous actress.

I suppose it is possible she can have a doctor inject her lips as it is needed there at rehab, but doesn't seem that it would happen? What does she do, have somebody punch her mouth every time she goes to court? Lord!

I think she *should* return to work, but she should choose a project that involves a lot of healthy, positive people that don't party hard and can be a good influence on her.

Seeing how other people can be successful and happy without drugs and drama would do her a lot of good, and if it works out it can help her reputation and career.

@Jade evergreen you're losing your cool now. Your comments lack all coherence now as well.

I was re-reading that report and am amazed at how UCLA has handled her ( or rather: not handled her) . At one point in the report it says a bloke at UCLA says she "admits being addicted " and she "feels powerless " . Yet they let her go and at exactly the time when her self esteem takes a plunge ( when you realize you're addicted and admit it to yourself your self esteem hits rock-bottom ) ?? What were they thinking then? They practically told her to relapse by releasing her at that critical moment.

BFC has to rebuild her self esteem now and it's doubtful they can manage that before January . Folks thinking she thinks she's "above the law "or "best actress "or whatever don't know stages an addict goes through. She DID think she was the best and above all other folks ,but that was before realizing she was addicted. You live in a make-believe world when addicted .

You lie to everyone when addicted -including yourself- and you put up a "brave face ".When someone tells you you have a substance problem ,you think he/she is "full of it " and you convince yourself you have it under control. In that report it is very clear she is no longer at that stage of denial. At least to herself - and some therapists- she pretty much admitted she's addicted. And that's exactly the time when your self-esteem hits rock-bottom. How can any professional think it's cool to release her at that time?

Dumas really is a dumas! If she were in jail she wouldn't be working either. She has to PAY for her mistakes. What do you not get about that. You're right about one thing though. She's an adult. She needs to take responsbility for herself. If she can't afford not working, she should have chose working over sticking coke up her nose. It was her choice...as she is an adult.

To the person who said she's in outpatient rehab. She is in inpatient rehab and will be for the next 70 days. I'm hoping the judge continues her probation until August 2011, but my guess is she'll mess up between her release from rehab and her court date. He's giving her time to hang herself.

@ Jade,

Before you go on a tirade, please proofread your comments. If you are going to bash someone, please don't make yourself look stupid in the process. You also aren't very familiar with addiction, because if you were, you wouldn't be so heartless and cruel. Yes, she messed up. She didn't care about anyone but herself. But that is exactly what happens when people are addicts. They lose control and the addiction takes over. A person needs to hit rock bottom and admit they need help in order for rehab or treatment to work.

Crawl back under your rock. God I hope you never have to deal with an addiction or someone you love that has one. You're cruel and heartless.

She needs to go to a halfway house immediately after rehab, for at least 9 months, so she knows how to leave in the outside world.

If I were Lindsay, I would be SAVING her money like crazy. You never know what can happen to your career in Hollywood. I would put at least $200,000 into some safe investments that get good returns.

Lindsay could call it her "college money". She might really need it later on in life to go to college and study for a different career. If her Hollywood career takes off bigtime again that's gravy. She'll still have that money. It will help her sleep well at night just knowing she has it. She needs some solid financial SECURITY. Stability. Peace of mind. She seems like a nervous wreck enough as it is.

Lindsay still needs a UNTOUCHABLE "nest egg". It might even be a good idea to buy some well researched real estate that can't be sold quickly ... so she won't be tempted to spend it.
