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.

Well, they already let her go to a photoshoot in LA where I am sure the drugs and alcohol flowed freely, why not go to NYC? I hope they are drugtesting her when she returns from these one day trips. Didn't the Judge want her in rehab until after the first to avoid the temptations of the holidays.

Why don't they just hand her the bottle of alcohol on the way out the door? I don't really think it matters either way, though. Sad to say, but she'll probably relapse again. I hope not, but everyone can see it coming from a mile away. This stint in rehab is just delaying the inevitable. Her mother and father are poison. She's probably paranoid as hell, considering she can't trust her own parents not to sell her out. What a f*cked up life.

"We're told Lindsay is "completely committed" to her treatment."

Haven't we heard that line before - like 4 times - one for each time she failed sobriety at her other treatment centers. So why not go for a 5th failed attempt by letting her out too early and right back into the middle of temptation, with her crazy family, and craziest of all, Deniar Lohan?

ALL THOU , I TRUST LINDSAY TO GET HER ACT TOGETHER , I DOUBT THE JUDGE WILL OK THAT . OUT OF STATE , IS WAY OUT OF LINE AND I SUSPECT THAT AFTER HER DAY TRIP , THAT THEY TESTED HER FOR DRUGS . THE FAMILY CAN JUST COME TO CALIFORNIA, THAT JUST WONT FLY WITH THE JUDGE. SHE REALLY LOOKS GREAT. SHE IS NOT A PSYCHO PATH. IN ANY TREATMENT SITUATION , IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE DOCTORS OPINION ...YOUR CONSIDERED IN DENIAL. SO YOU EITHER GO ALONG WITH THE DOCTORS CRAP OR THEY KEEP YOU THERE LONGER . I THINK SHE REALLY GETS IT FRANKLY . I THINK THAT THEY FORCED HER TO MEET WITH HER FATHER WAS RIDICULOUS. YOU DO NOT REWARD BAD BEHAVIOR. THERE IS A SAYING IN SITUATION WERE DRUG REHAB IS THE GOAL " FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT " . THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE ON THESE SITES WHO DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW THESE PROGRAMS WORK. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE DOCTORS OPNION ,....YOUR CONSIDERED IN DENIAL.

@peter
Exactly she wants to complete the program because the Judge is forcing her so of course she will agree with all the doctors etc.

Why not give her the benefit of the doubt? It seems like she has complied with every part of the program so far, doesn't she have to return to the real world sometime? It's a little unrealistic to think she should stay at the BFC forever. It's probably better for her to ease back into her life and work while she has the support of the program there if she needs it.

Lindsay cannot lie anymore. Or she gets clean or she goes to jail.

It's not HER rules, it's not Betty Ford rules, it's the LAW.

Will see how stupid or intelligent she is. That's it.

The audacity to even ask for such a request is unbelievable.

Just cut her from the program. Betty Ford and the Judge both seem flaky, and wasting her money

Whoever said John Allen is helping Lindsay was right on. Before it seemed likely given that they are good friends. But after he had the first judge removed from the case and then the next one fell in line, and now New York, there is no doubt. Talk about her powerful friends! I do however agree with #24 about giving Lindsay the benefit of the doubt. It does appear she is taking things seriously now. So maybe her friend helping her is not such a bad thing. It does seem like she is back on track. I can only imagine what she is going through, let alone that it is in the public eye and photographed every second. So until she shows differently, I'm pulling for her.

Why would the Judge Let her Go to NY? This Rehab is suppose to be Instead - Of Jail.. Jail, they dont let you out for the Holidays or a Photo shoot.

She is such a CON ARTIST. She will say anything they want to hear (like her enabling mother is cooking the Turkey and she will go to bed at 10 p.m.) Never going to happen! The Betty Ford Clinic is only concerned about getting paid. She will FALL off the wagon while in N.Y.

What does John Allen do?


According to Hollyscoop she already has permission to be on the East Coast for the holidays.

"Meanwhile, Lindsay has been approved to leave Betty Ford to head to the East Coast to be with Dina and her siblings for the holidays. One person who will obviously be absent will be Michael Lohan. "
