Lindsay Lohan Intervention

Michael Lohan Asked

Dr. Drew for Help

Michael Lohan
recruited rehab mastermind Dr. Drew for his massive Lindsay intervention last week, TMZ has learned -- but Dr. Drew declined, believing he would accidentally sabotage the entire operation.

Michael tells TMZ, he had been planning the Lindsay intervention for months ... and a couple weeks ago, he approached Dr. Drew to spearhead the mission.

But Michael tells us, Dr. Drew declined because he thought Lindsay would freak if she saw that he was involved -- defeating the entire purpose of the intervention.

According to Michael, Dr. Drew believed Lindsay needed someone with a lower profile ... someone less intimidating ... so Drew referred Michael to another intervention specialist.

Michael says he ultimately settled on someone else entirely -- someone with a connection to Lindsay's lawyer Dave Feldman -- but as we first reported, the intervention was a miserable failure ... and the cops were called.

Jane Velez Mitchell will be debating an addiction specialist on her HLN show tonight. That's very soon on the East Coast. Whoever wants to hear Michael make his case, here is your chance.

It's too bad the producers on SM5 didn't bust her flat ass for LIFTING 15 grand worth of clothes so she could be charged with a felony. But it's come to the point that people are just glad to get Lohan out of their hair for good, that it's worth the loss. Maybe she felt it was another "misunderstanding" and these people like famous A listers like herself to wear their clothes in public like the stolen necklace. This grown woman and known criminal with her poor poor childhood is a damn wreck. It's too bad that at this point nobody has the balls to do anything about her. She's only been off formal probation since May and it's been a complete disaster. Is there any type of military style rehab out there that can give her some disipline like marching, getting up at 0 500 hours, no smoking, no thefts...like a rehab camp military style.

Pain makes you stronger. Tears make you braver. Heartbreak makes you wiser. And Tequila makes you not remember any of that sh!t!

I have learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is easy and fun as hell.

Damn the comments on the ROL story about her stealing a rack of clothes worth 15 grand from the set of SM5 are great. I know it's been said on here but it's worth checking out.
