Lindsay Lohan's

Excuse for Stiffing Hotel

Lindsay Lohan
may say the producers of "Liz and Dick" promised to pay her enormous bill at the Chateau Marmont hotel ... but it's simply not true -- TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story, Lindsay racked up a hotel bill approaching $47,000 but stiffed the Chateau Marmont. As a result, Lindsay was banned from the hotel property.

Lindsay now says she thought her "Liz and Dick" producers would pay the bill, but sources very familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... the production NEVER promised to foot the bill. 

Sources connected to Lindsay tell us ... producers did give Lindsay a one-time only, $5,000 advance against her salary in late May so she could move into the hotel, but that was it. There was never even an insinuation the production company would pay her hotel bill.

Lindsay has said ... if the production company doesn't pay the bill, she will.

Stay tuned.

Oh, so Lindsay is leaving for Paris next week to make Gaga's video. That must be the shoot schedule that Delmar was talking about that would keep Douchette from NY fashion week.
`
Hope Gaga pays La Douche $46,350.04 for her appearance.
`
Love how Douche is drinking in the open again. Sucking down vodka and sodas at 4 am. I wonder if Sam Magid knows what she is up to?

I think at this point, we should be wondering why is there this deluge of bag press in TMZ on the lovely Lohan.
.
I think that like many people in the entertainment business, Lohan got favorable treatment from TMZ in return for favors - what's known as "payment in kind". It didn't have to me money or sexual favors, it could be just about anything that has tangible value to both parties. In Lohans case, I would imagine that money would be a prime tangible though. BTW, this is the kind of stuff that is done every day in the entertainment business, and TMZ is simply following a long tradition of PR azz kissing.
.
Well, I think it's obvious that Lohan did not keep up her end of the bargain. When you think about it, what could Lohan possibly have at this point that would outweigh TMZ posting these stories? These are GOLD to TMZ, much more valuable than some stupid story about Lohan going to Target and some surf shop to buy her brother surfing "gear" and electronics, or going to the beach covered up in towells and wraps so you can't see her pasty, lumpy, bumpy body.
.
Lohan has pretty much burned her bridges in LA for a while - don't forget, Hollywood has a short memory and if she becomes a valuable commodity again, she can give it another try. I doubt that will happen, because she has let herself go physically, let's face it, she really looks like shyte, and morally - well, at this point I don't believe she has any moral compass, the drugs and booze have pretty much killed all of that.
.
So where next? Well, New York is a big town - she can spend time busting through lines into parties, sneaking into openings, that kind of crap. She can always use her leggings business (is that bankrupt yet?) to get into fashion shows and then force her way to the front. She can do all the things that got her the "persona non grata" tag she so richly deserves.
.
And of course she can grift her way through Europe.
.
And that folks will be the sad, diminishing life of Lindsay Lohan. I can't really say she doesn't deserve it. Looking at her parents though, it's obvious she never stood a chance.

Lohan loves her flavored socks, once again she puts her foot in her mouth. She knows she's dead to rights wrong. Caught again. Knew about the bill since july 8 so why not pay the bill and work it out with Lifetime, oh, that right there was nothing to work out it's her bill. She intensionnaly stiffed on.


This is better than jail. Her getting banned is beyond humiliating and embarressing. She's already a bigtime Hollywood outcast. She so delusional trying to look like and thinks she some big A-List hollywood hot shot she just continues to make a complete fool of herself.


Lohan always knows what she's doing when she's doing it. This playing dumb and the 'I thought' BS never works.

She is so delusional that it is comical. If she spent a solid 6 months in lockup she might change
I truly believe that she will not have a happy ending to her life

Get ready, New York. Lindsay Lohan is moving to Tribeca. A source confirmed exclusively to Confidenti@l that LiLo is leaving her troubles in Los Angeles behind and settling down in New York City, where she’ll room with her assistant/sometimes best friend Gavin Doyle.
While the move won’t likely happen until after Fashion Week in September, Lohan is already settling back into the Manhattan party circuit. On Tuesday she was spotted with former Yankees Pat Kelly and Shane Spencer at Dorrian’s, the upper East Side bastion of prep school kids, downing vodka-and-sodas and even jumping on the mic for some karaoke.
Her song choice? “You & I” by Lady Gaga, the Lohan admirer who handpicked the troubled starlet to star in a new music video. Sources say Lohan will jet to Paris early next week for the shoot.
After belting out a few tunes, including some Billy Joel, the crew sped downtown to Electric Room and claimed the coveted center booth for some late-night debauchery. Lohan says she was there celebrating the Los Angeles district attorney’s Tuesday decision to drop charges connecting her to a burglary in the Hollywood Hills.
If the Lohan camp was aware of Wednesday’s news that she owes $46,000 to the Chateau Marmont, or her subsequent ban from the property, they didn’t seem to care. It’s possible the eviction from her L.A. crash pad at the famed Hollywood hotel led to Lindsay’s decision to head back East.
Later, Lohan chatted to us about her role in “The Canyons.” The film had just wrapped, and she says the results were “fantastic.” Around 4 a.m., her entourage suggested a move to Le Baron, but Lohan said she wanted to go home. Sources tell us she’s holed up at the Bowery Hotel.
When reached for comment, Lindsay’s rep said, “I think right now people should focus on the presidential race and the future of our country.”

If they gave her the money in advance for the hotel bill, she cannot pull the switcharoo and say they said they'd pay after. What a ungrateful little witch. If she doesn't want to play by the rules, nobody should hire her.

I call BS. A production company isn't going to pay for a hotel in the same town where you live.

Can we get a scorecard on how many times she's been to rehab, and how much she paid each time for those dry-out sessions? What fascinates me is that she really doesn't care. She can't drive. She doesn't pay her taxes. It's all her assistant's fault. She carjacked someone once because she was arguing with somebody. (Remember? She invaded someone's truck and said "don't touch me, I'll sue you".) Now she's moving to NYC (see: NY Daily News column today)? Honey, the work (giggle) is in California. They're currently filming something in Jackson Heights, Queens, because they are setting up now, but I think their cast is complete. Maybe next time. Stay out in California. This way when Mama Lohan wants to have an intervention or a hug therapy session or take you shopping to make you all better, she can leave that house she keeps renovating and dormering up and come out west and see you. (Lindsay, neighborhood stores sell cigarettes cheaper than your skank er, I mean um, swank hotel. I know YOU don't want to pay for anything because let's face it, you're the new Marilyn Monroe, 1 movie and counting, but save SOMEBODY some money, won't you?)
