Lindsay Lohan

HANDPICKED

By Victoria Gotti

4/8/2011 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan beat out Blake Lively AND Sienna Miller for her new role as Victoria Gotti -- and TMZ has learned ... Victoria herself made sure that happened.

Sources close to the production tell TMZ, producers were considering both Blake and Sienna for the role -- but John Gotti's famously blonde daughter wasn't having it, insisting Lindsay get the role instead ... and producers loved the idea.

Not all that surprising -- according to sources, Victoria is a good friend of the Lohan family ... and she often spends time with them on Long Island.

Meanwhile, Lindsay is currently in L.A. auditioning for "Superman" -- but we're told she already has a plane ticket back to NYC for April 12th ... to close the Gotti deal for good.

I love it! What I enjoy the most is that the(c)rock woke up early from his drunken stupor to bray blithely about a rumor that has proven to be false.

Love it. Pound sand, (c)rock.

What I'd rather see is him pounding rock. At a local prison.

Oh, wait! I forgot, he's already been there, done that, except I think that someone was pounding therock, instead of the other way around.

Here's a positive thought....Lindsay does the film and she and Dina get converted to the quasi-religion called Scientology. Lindsay goes all L Ron Hubbard on us and is "held" in the facility in Florida never to be seen again. Dina has a freak-out and she too disappears into the black hole. The rest of the family are spared deemed not "celebrity" enough to warrant Scientology intervention.

So, a friendship and a business relationship. At best, she’s being “kept” by him. At worst, she’s being paid for services rendered.

I doubt that Mama Dina would allow Lindsay to give away her "services" for free. Really, themare, not a lot of thought on that one.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, wonder why Lindsay would need to render "services" to this man if she were about to get a big paycheck from an upcoming film?

I am so glad for Lindsay as I would be glad for any human being getting good news that doesn't harm ANOTHER!!!

What I would like the HATERS in this comment section who have NOTHING better to do with their lives ~ That would be DREAMER, LORI,LOU, and your other names you use on here to spew your HATE!

WHAT HAS LINDSAY EVER DONE TO YOU?

ANSWER: NOTHING!

YOUR REASON: YOU DON'T HAVE A LIFE AND YA' DONT HAVE **** TO DO IN IT!!!

SUGGESTION: USE YOUR BUS PASS AND CATCH THE BUS TO THE LIBRARY AND CHECK OUT A BOOK, IT'S FREE!!!

WITH YOUR BROKE A$$!

how much did harvey pay for this story?

Posted at 6:52 AM on Apr 8, 2011 by HarlotO'Hara

Too damned much, but enough* for the coke to flow for Dina while Lindsay is away in prison (*along with the money Lindsay has earned from the "services" rendered to the hotelier.)

(Thank you, Vorlon, for the use of the wonderful phrase, "Dina (the coke must flow.)

normal person,

You can pound sand too. Another Lying Lindsay rumor shot to hell.

SUZA, can you forward this denied rumor on to the DA's Office? We can't have Lying Lindsay make a claim that she's appearing in this movie so as to vie for leverage in her sentencing.

Gotta keep it real, normal person.

Lindsay got handpicked because she is a Hooker for the mob.

G@dd@m, girl, DON'T ruin my illusions of the Mob! Nobody in the Godfather would have touched a hooker that looked like that. Come ON now! Mobsters have MONEY so Mobsters can have TASTE.

"Gotti is friends with the Lohan Family"

This explains everything. Lindsay gets by on nepotism and her previous childhood fame.

Lindsay Lohan has been cozying up to hotelier Vikram Chatwal. The starlet was spotted with the wealthy, soon-to-be bachelor at Top of the Standard on Tuesday night, spies tell us.

Chatwal — who is divorcing his actress wife, Priya Sachdev, whom he married in a 10-day, multicity wedding in 2006 — flew Lohan into the city on his private jet and has been putting her up in the penthouse of his Chatwal Hotel on West 44th Street.

______________________________________________

All of us non-millionaire haters must be dying of envy, as we fry the fries and watch the GREAT Lindsay Lohan make even more millions yet again with her incredible talents. NEVER has been being a paid escort paid so handsomely! So let us keep on hating as we fry those fries and die of envy, wishing that we, too, were high-priced call girls.

Some tidbits (as promised) from the emails I exchanged with the Probation Dept:

As frustrating as it no doubt is for you, just try to imagine how the probation officers feel when they see their work seemingly disappear as their “clients” continue to be processed through the court system.

If a probation officer finds that the person has violated his/her probation condition, then it is our responsibility to bring them back to court and face the judge. That’s why you see so many court appearances made by this individual.
