Lindsay to Dad -- Why The Hell Are You Doing 'Rehab?'

3/2/2011 9:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan was "shocked and upset" to hear that her father signed up for "Celebrity Rehab" ... telling friends she's worried he'll embarrass the family.

Lindsay Lohan Michael Lohan

We're told Lohan is saying she's most upset that her dad, Michael Lohan, began taping the show without ever giving her a heads up.

Lohan is also adamant she will NEVER make an appearance on the show.

Lindsay also wants to know how much Michael is getting paid for the gig -- because she wants to make sure her dad kicks over some of the cash to Dina ... since "he should be paying his child support for Ali and Cody."

FYI -- "Celebrity Rehab" had been gunning for Lindsay to star on the show in the past ... but it never came to be.

I like DUIna, though. She's a blast! It's like watching Lucy Ricardo on acid. And cocaine. Lots of cocaine.

Actually, I find Lindsay interesting as a cultural phenomenon. She's a pretty girl with some success as a child star and some adult promise with no adult career acheivements of note.

What is facinating is that her Momager discovered and exploited a newly created niche in the new media. Tabloid internet. With a phone call, one could create the impression that your client was "doing something." Internet tabs with a voracious need for contents and hits obliged by putting this stuff up.

It's a living soap opera. Some folks like Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie and the Kardashians have managed to parlay that exposure into some sort of "brand." Made themselves commercial spokespersons for real products in the living soap opera.

Lindsay never successfully made this transition or produced a work or product that could support her presence in the soap opera. Instead, she became famous for her hijinks, bar hopping and brushes with the law.

In a world where attention = more attention and more hits, she got very famous and seems to believe that she's very special because of how her own press was promulgated. But she's unfortunately just being ground up in the tabloid mill and being served up every day till she's got nothing left to grind.

The process is, I think a cautionary tale. The fame isn't attached to anything solid in this case. In fact it's probably encouraged her to believe that it's OK for her to do things that are not OK to do and that the consequences are more fame.

A huge disconnect with reality and resulting in a very unattractive grasping for fame by her whole camp all the time being less and less qualified to do anything real and more and more of a spectacle.

I hope she gets it together and moves on with her life in a productive way.

Well said dreamon.

Unfortunately, there are many in today's world who are famous for being famous but not for having done anything real.

Paris Hilton and the whole Kardashian clan are prime examples.

Lindsay did at least do some real work as a child, but none as an adult. Now she is.. as you say... the same tabloid fodder that the rest of them are.

It's sad that the Internet, which is a wonderful tool, has also given us the "famous for nothing" types.....

Well, Rose. I think Hilton and the Kardashians have actually made themselves a new kind of entrepreneur. Lindsay has attempted that with her legging line, fashion designing, tanning products etc. but those business fell apart where Hilton and the Kardashians have managed and grown their businesses.

What happened to to the LL bussineses? They fell apart through neglect and hubris, IMHO. She's got zero cachet as a spokesperson (unlike them) and conversely no acting projects either. Just tabloid fodder with no purpose.

Interesting news coming out about the party LL was trying to get into. It's being reported that she was turned away after the gatekeepers checked with Madonna herself, who denied the entrance.
and that she LL went ballistic about it.

Case law sets the standard, whereas, the terms "equal protection under law" is established at the appellate level.... some say, "you will be treated like everyone else" so to say.


CASE LAW

"This section of the Penal Code makes it a crime for any

person 'by any false or fraudulent representation or

pretense' to 'defraud any other person',"

People v. Hiden, 102 Cal. App. 2d 655, 658 [228 P.2d 95].


COMMENT --- Again, the terms "FALSE or FRAUDULENT" and "PRETENSE", "to defraud any other person"...... and I do NOT see any signs of any INTENT to DEFRAUD.

Nikki,
there's an interview w/ Patrick last Jan (2010) where he basically says that LL lifted his designs for her company.

I think it was a Perez "exclusive", and Patrick ended the conversation by saying he (Patrick) couldn't let everything out yet.

That kind of thing (lack of originality) was said about her when she was in BF, about her new shoe line. So maybe she's not really good at designing stuff. I don't know what's up w/ Dina that Dina has a need (it seems) to make both LL and AL into the most multi-faceted talented people earth has ever seen
