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.

I still can't believe that this peice of trash is still getting away with all these things. Someone in the real world would have already been in jail. Someone needs to look into recalling these judge's that keep giving slaps on the wrist to this low life!

She's young, she's talented (when she wants to be),....COULD have the world on a string, but chooses to keep f@@@ing up. What's wrong with this picture? Been a spported and fan for years, but damn Lindsay,you keep screwing yourself, and those azzzwipes who keep enabling you,...they will help destroy. you. Alot of blame I put on those so called parents of yours,...photo op oppotunists,......you have had sooo many chances with your career, and the only people who will hire you,are the ones who think you can help their partings,....they could give a damn about Lindsay the person. There are a lot of us posters, who work the daily grind, day in and day out,....same s@@@ e-v-e-r-y day,....would crawl ove glass to get the career opportunities you have been given,...several times. WTF is wrong with you,...who aren't you gettin' it? Lock down facility,....really? Like the last one, where you snuck out 'and' got caught, and you had that altercation with an employee?....Sounds like 'same s@@@ different day'. Sooner orlater you will have to choose,....life or death,....which do you choose,....be a grown-up.

Its funny how all the same trolls gather here when there is a Lindsay story. Nikki, Regina, zephr, sam, seamus, janet. All you catty b i t c h e s who obviously have no lives meet here to bash someone none of you have ever met. And when someone doesn't agree with one of you, you all gang up on him or her. When in reality, its your little gang of LOSERS!

So now that we all know what scares the hell out of her, why did we give her an option? Maybe jail is what she needs. Its not like she would be in GP, she would be in high power and kept alone in a cell. i think what scares her is not being able to smoke, watch TV, go outside and the food. If sending her to jail would finally straighten her out that is actually where they should have sent her!!!

@VIN. I predict she won't even make it to rehab given she has until May 2nd to get her a.s.s. into an approved lockdown facility. She will wait until the very last minute and then scramble to find one. A day late and a dollar(or should I say a couple million short). You would think that it would be hard to find a lockdown facility that's willing to take a lawsuit happy certifiable nutjob that revels in physically assaulting their staff. But I bet there will plenty begging for a "crack" at Crackie. Imagine if one of these rehab places actually "cured" her addictions and mental illnesses-they would be feted as miracle workers and they would be the new " McDonalds" of rehabs with over 80 billion served. LOL. If only...That's why I didn't mind this deal of a lockdown-she is locked up like jail and during the meantime when she fvcks up(because she will) she will be kicked to to jail anyway. If the last 6 yrs are any indication of how far she's fallen and continues to fall without the least bit of insight as to why, she will fail at this endeavor of redemption as well.

So same old thing--Lindsay doesn't have a problem. This 90 day stay is going to be extremely expensive--and since she continues to believe there's no problem, it seems like a waste. But then, so is her life.
