Lindsay Lohan -- Next Stop, New York City?

11/15/2010 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan has been given the green light by Betty Ford to venture around Southern California -- but we've learned Lindsay is going to try and extend that freedom ... all the way to the Big Apple.

Sources close to Lohan tell TMZ LiLo really wants to go home for the holidays, so she'll ask Betty Ford for the okay. If they give her permission, we're told Lindsay will try and spend Thanksgiving and Christmas with the family back in Long Island.

We're told Lindsay is "completely committed" to her treatment and if Betty Ford nixes her holiday plans ... she's ok with it.

So far, nothing's been decided.

Didn't Betty Ford learn anything from her stay at UCLA? SHE IS A SOCIOPATH! She will say whatever they want to hear and make them think she is obeying all the rules and fully committed, while the other half of her brain is saying "HAHAHAHHAHAHA FOOLS!"
What a joke.

Not a great idea, too far away and the judge made it clear why he wanted her in rehab until past the holiday seasons, which are big drinking temptations. Much better for her family to come visit, then she could make a day trip to be with everybody and be back at Betty Ford at night for testing.

Maybe the center has enough connections in New York to reliably set up a substitute monitoring program, but alcohol in particular clears within a few hours. I assume that travel outside the state or even the immediate jurisdiction requires permission of the court, though, not just the center.

This is absurd. Is anyone going to remind LL the judge ordered her to remain in BF or sober living affiliated with BF until January 3, 2011? That does NOT include photo shoots or flying to NY! It's clear she's acting her way through rehab. Let's hope BF isn't as stupid as UCLA was.

This is getting more and more absurd each day with her stretching the limits.

Didn't the judge Marsha Rebel make it clear that what was good for rehab didn't mean that she was complying with the terms of her probation? Didn't judge Elden Fox specifically say he wanted her in rehab til after the holidays for a reason? My God, this girl is a moron! She clearly doesn't give a damn about anything but the really really short term.

@JLS, I'm completely baffled by all of this. Can someone -maybe Harvey- explain how any, or all, of this is allowed to happen?
This really is beyond absurd. Maybe this is why people in Hollywood just continue to relapse and re-enter rehab facilities year in and year out.

At this rate they might as well discharge her.
Betty Ford is just taking her money. Cut her free

Exactly she is only commited because she is avoiding jail but she wants out.
It is just like all the previous rehabs all over again were she makes so much progress that the best thing to do is to let her out. This time i think she may actually stay sober at least until February 25th if she is facing 180 days with no early release.

dont let her go.she came back from LI last time and tested positive which would mean either dina or lilos sis is an enabler.bad bad move without someone from BF at her side at all times.dina and mikey are both known coke heads.

With the way her family travels all over the place with no money, why can't THEY go to CA to spend the holidays with her" There is NO need for her to go to NY other than to party!

@JLS
UCLA had no choice but to release her early it was a psychiatric hospital and she didn't need nor want to be there.
Unless she came to an epiphany during the 13 days in jail then how was that sentence going to work when she didn't fail any drug tests and the prescriptions were not a violation of probation.
Her team even leaked Morningside to TMZ beause they knew she wouldn't get an early release and probably violate probation again if they were specifically going to tougher on her.

@Inouno Nyx

The way Marsha Revel has treated this case since May has been a joke and her unprofessional behavior got her kicked off it in August.

You aren't supposed to mandate a time in rehab once the person completes the program then the best thing is to release them so that can continue to progress and work on their sobriety.

Who didn't see it playing out like this

She needs another crash and burn, somewhere else. That sounds like a solid plan for recovery---to start all over again!
