It is very sad. If all of this is true she really needs help.

Oh boy....here we go again. I really didn't think she would do something so stupid during her probation period. Well I guess I was wrong. Jeez...so much for giving her the benefit of doubt. I'm convinced she fried every last brain cell in her head now. If I had been in her shoes I would have taken this last opportunity to change it all around - work my butt off and prove that I could be dependable and have a career as an actress. The girl blew it. She's toast now. No one will ever give her a chance now. Not after this. No way.

The thing is....a stint in jail is not going to change her behavior (although jail is appropriate punishment if she is found guilty). The girl needs some serious help. I guess she doesn't want it bad enough. Pretty messed up.

debbie: she doesn't need help. she's had help. didn't work cause she thinks her sh*t doesn't stink.

what she needs is to have her azz beat from the time she opens her eyes until she closes them.

@ 43 Becky

The last time she was jailed without bail for a suspected VoP that decision was overruled in a matter of hours.
Do some reading on the eight amendment to the U.S. constitution.

Lindsay says : I'm not guility cause I'm not"

yea, and your not guility when you stole a fur coat, drove drunk, takes drugs, chase
your assistant down the street 100 miles an hour, starts fights, lies to everyone about
everything, takes no responsibility, blames others, acts like privileged celebrity.

Well baby, your reputation and career are OVER. You have yourself to blame and you
do not deserve the support and affection of your fans. STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES

From Radar:

One source told RadarOnline.com that, at a separate hearing at a later date, the D.A. is going to be asking Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz to "put Lindsay in jail, for violating terms of her probation, for six months in county. This is a separate matter from now new felony case."

If Lindsay is eventually convicted of felony grand theft, she could receive up to 3-years in state prison, although the sentence would likely be shorter.

On the eve of her court appearance, Lindsay was photographed getting her hair done at the swanky Byron Tracey salon in Beverly Hills on Tuesday, leaving the salon with a movie set-ready blonde coif while clad in a cute floral dress and black cowboy boots.

----

Glad to hear VoP charges will be filed, hope they are an actual 6 months served and NOT concurrently.

Radar still mentions up to 3 years to be served for the felony. We shall see...

And finally...the nitbrain spent last night getting her hair done?!??? Like it's a walk on the red carpet?!???? Like she's freaking proud of her part in this?!???? She still doesn't get it, does she? God, this has to be one of the most clueless, in denial idiots EVER, right alongside Dina Denial.

A felonymisunderstanding. Wow, that's a new one. Kind of up there with "the glove don't fit," dontcha think?

Uh Lou, the glove didn't fit and OJ was acquitted. What was your point again? Apparently that argument wasn't as ridiculous to the jury as you think it was. /smirk

@Nicole... Post bail no jail (I just made that up).

Lohan, as long as she can make bail she doesn't got to jail.

Lindsay comes off more like a Gemini than a cancer, and I say that because I have a female friend whos a Gemini that could be her twin, her good twin that is. She dose have a very darkside to her though.
In the Batman comics Joker always tries to get the better of Batman by telling him things like hes they are a lot alike.
The difference is Batman has a choke hold over his darkside, and Joker embraces it, because he is insane.
Lindsay is no different, and she has embraced her evil twin.
