Sources tell us Lindsay got a day pass for good behavior. We're told she'll get a little shuteye in her own bed, grab a few things, and then head back to the sober living facility tonight.

Oh, who gives a flippin' care about this chick? I wish she'd just go away. I highly doubt there are 17 people in this entire country that cares to see her in ANY film. Good riddance.

Well done Lindsay. In the sober house if patients are doing well, they are allowed a pass or overnight pass, mainly for good behavior or work purposes, Lindsay is obviously doing great.

Best of luck Lindsay

She HAD to go back to the Empire... she ran dangerously low on Lindsay Lohan-brand cigarettes and she can't trust anyone to access her vault. These priceless cigarettes are manufactured by some 4th-world country she owns, and hand produced exclusively for her... and Ali. Dina only smokes some Peruvian product.

A quick stop to pick up Clam Ronson, then it's off to a 2-step meeting at the Chateau M.

As for her apparent dental pain? well, there's always Dilaudid for that.

I would agree about the tabloid obession.

I disagree with the "nobody cares" argument.

People "care" in a sense that they are bored and curious and Lindsay's life is basically equal to that of a reality television show, only without the cameras (most of the times). Plenty of people watch Jersey Shore or Real Housewifes of this or that. Most who watch those shows will never admit it to their friends, out of fear of public ridicule. People are fascinated, if only for the potential trainwreck quality that exists. It's like a closet obsession and/or a guilty pleasure.

TMZ, RadarOnline, and X17 Online are not stupid. They give the people what they want. The people want it, even if they refuse to admit that they want it.

But we've reached a point as a society where we are essentially stalking this woman through the tabloids. It's a new form of stalking. Tabloid stalking.

Then everyone rushes to judge and over-analyze everything. People are making too much of deal about whatever is happened to Lindsah in sober living/rehab. It's a behavioral modification program. They are trying to help her deal with real life issues. She goes out, encounters various real life situations, and then she returns to her therapists and she talks about her experiences. Betty Ford does this with everyone.

Denial is half the battle in the world of addiction recovery anyway. It was the denial that was getting her into trouble more then anything. Since she's obviously not in denial anymore, I don't think there's much danger in her relapsing again. Betty Ford has seen enough to know that there is no more denial. All the published reports basically say the same thing.

Exactly for some reason Lindsay is followed.
Until February 25th when if she fails a drug or even an alcohol test she gets 180 days in jail she won't get any privacy and all her actions and behavior will be placed under heavy scrutinity.

@ Nicole you wrote: "She just needs to make it until that date and then put this behind her."

Do you honestly think Feb 25th is the end of LL's troubles? Are you that naive? I mean, come on .... you make it seem like the judge and her legal problems are the reason she is an addict. Those are only the consquences .... Feb. 25th is the beginning of Lindsay true test or if she did rehab for herself or the criminal justice system. Time will tell. We will all give her the benefit of the doubt.

However, 30 days in Betty Ford and then sober living till court is no indication that anything worked. Espeically if she is still dragging on those smokes. Smoking is a much more addictive drug than anything she went to rehab for.

@ OooooNooo!
Miss Lovato has a psychosomatic disorder, at the age of 18 found the ability to check her SELF in to a treatment center. Miss Lovato should get a lot more respect for trying to be a good person. She will be able to give girls like her, a person to look too for strength to get better themselves.
Miss Lohan, had to be THROWN in to treatment several times over many years. That shows the different between the two. Now if Miss Lohan would do something (like I don’t know start ACTING) to better herself by herself then “good for her”. Until then….

I know this is a day pass, but doesn't it all seem rather quick?
Wonder if she'll be out early; due to exemplary progress?

It is sober living till Jan 3rd then outpatient with the people that were mentioned in the probation report and that will take up 5-10 hours max a week until Feb 25th.
No i don't think Feb 25th is the end of her troubles but at least she won't face incarceration if she relapses and the whole world won't be informed if she does. Also she won't be stuck in LA and will get her freedom and life back

Any one of us would not be allowed to leave.

Oh man! No chaperone? After such a short time? Not good. You don't wave a magic wand and the addiction is gone, for heaven sake. This is just what they did at UCLA in their ineffective Rehab and look what happened a couple of days later. Sounds like she's being set up to Fail (again). She should have at least had to have a chaperone like when she had Sam Ronson for 24/7 for a year. Of course that didn't work either, she still drank and used. She needs Time in rehab, away from her sick way of life. I'll give her a month if she stays out and is allowed to prowl around on her own. She's an addict.
