Lindsay Lohan

Jail Scares the Crap Out of Me ... So I Chose Rehab

EXCLUSIVE

0318_lindsay_lohan_tmz

It's not a promising sign ... but we've learned Lindsay Lohan did NOT accept the plea deal of 90 days in lockdown rehab because she wants to beat substance abuse -- she chose it because it beats jail.

We broke the story ... prosecutors have offered Lindsay the 90-day lockdown rehab deal for weeks, but she consistently rejected it. Her change of heart came at the last minute -- 30,000 feet in the air as she belatedly flew to L.A. for her trial.

Lindsay is telling friends she actually likes the rehab option, because it will allow her to focus on herself without any distractions.

Here's the problem. Lindsay is still saying -- ADAMANTLY -- she does NOT have a substance abuse problem. People in the rehab world say ... it's virtually impossible for anyone in rehab to get better if they don't admit having a problem.

Lindsay has been down this route before, but the rehab experience has never stuck.

Why would a narcissist like Lindsay have any trouble focusing on herself? She hardly needs lockdown rehab for that -- I'm sure she already spends plenty of time looking at her sorry self in a mirror...

So, this should mean that we are now granted 90 days without hearing anything about Blohan, and hopefully won't hear anything about her ever again!!

If jail scares her and rehab doesn't, then she needs to go to jail to straighten out.

She's done this to herself. The rest of us who are stressing over our studies and trying for a fabulous future really feel like she has let the sisterhood down.
She is NOT a celebrity when she is in the news for criminal activity only. The court giving her the option of rehab or punishment is beyond all reasoning. These judges can't be star struck. They probably just don't want to pay any more money for her demanding ways whilst in jail. (ie) "this jail library doesn't have the book I want, you need to order it" Or "Why doesn't the jail telly have the tv stations I need" But this is not a celebrity getting celebrity justice. She is a common and seems quite proud of it. Honey Boo should be giving this woman some guidance. It would be a start to her recovery.

She's an Idiot. She laughs at the Justice system. Her A$$ should be in Jail. If she were male or of a different color, she would have been there Long Ago.
