Lindsay Lohan: All I Had to Drink was TEA!!!!

6/24/2011 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan is adamant she did NOT drink wine, beer or liquor during her stint on house arrest ... insisting her dirty test was caused by a fermented tea that contains a TEEEENY amount of alcohol.

Lohan has been telling friends she's been drinking her favorite kombucha tea again ... the same tea that caused her probation officer to raise a red flag earlier this year because it contains alcohol. The company behind the drink claims the alcohol content is less than .05%.

Of course, the judge ruled that Lindsay is ALLOWED to consume alcohol during her house arrest sentence ... so the dirty test didn't matter anyway.

TMZ spoke with Lindsay about the situation ... and she told us, "I am responsible, and I'm following the rules and obeying my judge and the Los Angeles judicial system."

She adds, " I'd like to do what I must to get my film career back and the respect of directors, actors, writers, studio heads, fans and so on."

Oh and didn't she use the "Kombucha Defense" before?

You'd think that if you already had one embarrasing episode blamed on it, you'd avoid it like the plague? That's what a responsible intelligent person anxious to gain everyone's respect again would do......

Does she consult with Casey Anthony on these improbably excuses? Maybe she oughta hire Hosey Buy-az to represent her. At least he can keep a straight face when he lies.

Yeah, a career of tabloids, internet gambling sites and blown off interviews with legitimate interviewers like Lauer does reflect negatively on her level of professionalism.

She has made careless statements of sobriety that she will be hard pressed to back up. Unfortunately, Lindsay is a really sloppy drunk. She will go to clubs and she will drink and there will be pictures to do***ent it further driving down her credibility level.

Rather than run the "tea" spiel again, I think if she would have said that she legally had drinks rather than cook up more lies, she would have looked better but not by much.

What difference does it make if she`s allowed to drink? We already know she`s a liar.

Like the probation report says. She's hasn't changed and probably won't.

---------------
The DUIs were 4 years ago and with the exception on the necklace incident all of her infractions have related to that 2007 case due to the extremely harsh July 6th sentence.
Shawn even said it last night on the E! interview that no one gets rehab in those cir****tances(completed everything no failed drug tests etc) and Lindsay only went because the court ordered her to.

It's not that she drinks, Nicole. It's that she has elaborately and publicly weaved a net of lies about her sobriety and sincerity that are consistently found to be false?
Add her cashing in on these cir****tance with constant tabloid affiliation with police, courts, rehabs, lying etc and it severely damages her likability and credibility.

She looks very tired and sad.

Okay! Way to go Lindsay! Ordering you to court was a waste of time, energy and money. How much tax money did that cost?

"-- Elden Fox -- only required controlled substances testing from January 3 - February 25, 2011."
I guess this could be found somewhere in your file, but it was only discovered during that hearing?

"The Probation Department is pissed off because they tried to force Lindsay to take two tests in May but Lindsay's lawyer, Shawn Holley, refused to make Lindsay submit, claiming it wasn't part of her probation."
Turns out your lawyer was right, maybe because she has read what Elden Fox required?

For the record Lindsay, I am neither defending you nor your lifestyle. If you want to booze, bring on the bottles and let the alcohol flow.
The wasted time, energy and money is what bothers me most.

Kàt    

so the bottle doesn't state that it contais .05% alcohol? She has been in the 'state of affairs' long enought to know that even the smallest amount of alcohol, in any form will screw up a pee test.

Just the fact that she had a party while on house arrest should be sending warning signals to all of her fans. That doesn't scream "I want to stay sober" to anyone. People who seriously want to "rehab" themselves usually will wipe the slate clean. Meaning they will get rid of all of their druggie/alcoholic friends because they realise they are not real friends but people with problems themselves. They will usually seek out new hobbies/interests that are healthy and that do not revolve around a "party scene". Has Lindsay done any of these things? I don't feel she has, and that is why I cannot even begin to think this young woman is trying to turn her life around. She's doing what all alcoholic/drug abusers do. Lying!!
If she truly wants people to believe her then she has to knock off the partying and stop acting like a spiteful little child and follow the rules and act like an adult! This "teen rebellion" she seems stuck in is going to forever be her downfall!

She may have avoided jail, but that's the least of her problems. She's correct to be worried about studio heads thinking she's still on the sauce.

----

Studio heads don't care if your on the sauce. All they care is that your a functioning addict who can deliver the go


you are correct sir. and her marked past has shown time and time again. that she can not deliver anything.

georgia rule. cast despiced her. passing out drunk. puking all over.

ugly betty. once again showed uplate did bad job. cast hated her.

the list is long.

singing career caught lip synking

fashion line sucked the hind tit.

helping children over seas caught partying did not help anyone


pucket thank you not to mention court dates classes CS

directors see the long list of problems

she is ending her own career bit by bit

there ae at least a dozen actresses in Hollywood that are probably 24-30 who are more talented than she is and they don't come with all the baggage and risks associated with addictions or impulse control issues

and if she is truely an alcoholic, any amount of alchohol that she consumes counter productive and she apparently doesn't get that still
