Lindsay Lohan

Judge Tells Shawn

'You Saved Her!'

5/6/2013 10:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan was saved from almost certain arrest by the lawyer she once stiffed and fired ... this according to the judge.

TMZ has learned ... Shawn Holley snuck into court this morning, along with prosecutors, where the judge formally 86'd attorney Mark Heller from the case and announced Holley would be Lindsay's new lawyer.

Judge Jim Dabney told Shawn, "You snatched her from the precipice."   Translation:  The judge was about to issue an arrest warrant because Lindsay was a rehab no-show but Shawn stepped in and saved the day.

Holley told the judge Lindsay was safely ensconced at Betty Ford.  Prosecutors voiced concern that the rehab joint only offers 30-day programs, which would mean Lindsay would repeat the same program 3 times to fulfill her 90-day sentence.  But Holley said there were longer programs that would not be repetitive.

The judge seemed fine with Betty Ford and said there's no need for another hearing unless prosecutors have a problem with the facility.   Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... prosecutors are currently investigating Betty Ford to determine if the facility is suitable.

A big issue is whether Lindsay will be able to leave and/or sneak out of the facility. You'll recall during her 2010 stay at Betty Ford she left the facility several times.  That's because she was staying in the residential part of the facility.  Sources tell us Lindsay will stay in the hospital section for her entire stay so leaving won't be an option -- at least that's the plan.

Obama's America, where everyone is equal ....only some people are more equal than others. The "Ugly American" term is truly being redefined.

She should be in JAIL!
The reason Lohan refused to go to Morningside was because they had promised to PAY HER $30K in order to seek treatment there but hadn’t come up with the cash money yet. That's why she never went in & left.
She went back to Betty Ford because they allowed her to stay for FREE! How ridiculous is that?
So, in other words, she was playing rehab roulette to make a payday! OUTRAGEOUS! The judge should have thrown her in jail over Heller's bad plea deal.
No matter. She'll NEVER make it the 90 days w/o trying to sneak out.

If anyone was serious about saving her, then they would have arrested her and put her in jail and then forced her into detox rehab! But no one in this group cares enough to show her some seriously tough love. Too many people saying yes to her.

Hospital section too funny is that a rubber room should be. Lohan will still be a nightmare. She already wants to leave. What a surprise.

Lohan should be kissing Holley feet. Lohan used Heller and get what she wanted. Yeah, she's a real skumbag.

I'm having a vision.

I see Lindsay one year from today, speaking in front of a group of people.

She's explaining that she didn't appreciate her chances at reahbilitation, and she really didn't mean to push the red button as she was servicing the Iatola of Iran.

Then she showed side boob, started crying and wailed that it isn't her fault.....that NOTHING is her fault.

Her middle finger has تذهب اللعنة جملا on it which is an Arabic insult to camels.

That's it.....I'm exhausted. Must nap.....

Guys, nothing is going to change the fact she's nasty drunk, druggie, patholoical lier and god knows a thief.

She's burned her bridges. A no talent major liability.

What with her picking and choosing rehabs, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if it took her 2-3 years to complete the 90 day sentence.

This is what this is probably all about. Find another rehab and released from BF until another rehab can be found. And let's not forget any continuances that will inevitably come up.

This clown is just too transparengt.

Here we go again! This dumb-bitch just thinks that all she has to do is call on Shawn Holley and all be well. Shawn will get her out of legal woes, time after time after time after time! At some point the JUDICIAL system needs to STEP up and stop this insane madness! Just because it is screw-up Lohan, does not give her a free pass in the CA or any other judicial system. She is a LAW-BREAKING, COCAINE, ALCOHOLIC, DRUG ADDICTED 25 year old, now 6 years in the CA legal system. ENOUGH! Will any of the JUDGES that gets appointed to Lohans case next just do the right thing and place her in jail where she belongs. She is a threat to the community she lives in and does not know how to abide by the rules and laws of the community she lives in. ! The judicial system is chocking with cases much more serious than hers and they need to just close it out once and for all and throw her in jail where she belongs. That is the only thing she responds to ... JAIL! Again I reiterate day for day, credit for time already served, no early release. No more probation, no more THREATS of jail, just do it!

Great. So the person who's major skillset seems to be getting someone with a major problem off of having to pay for it legally is back to make sure LiLo doesn't even get a hand slapped.
Her first order of business? Changing the "lockdown rehab" venue to a place LiLo's already been to at least once. Where she also got into an altercation over her sneaking out.
That's just great.
And to the judge in the case, I offer a hearty round of applause for letting this drugged-up little twit twist what's left of the respecatablitiy of the California State Justice System and getting it and common sense tossed right out the window.

The Krusty the Klown Story: Booze, Drugs, Guns, Lies, Blackmail and Laughter


Krusty the Clown was in the Betty Ford Center saying that after 5 years of taking booze and pills and the only things he had to show for it are 4 Emmys and a Peabody award.

It is unknown how real the do***entary is. It could be a fictional "do***entary" as it doesn't seem that realistic and wasn't shown on Channel 6 like most Krusty shows are.,_Drugs,_Guns,_Lies,_Blackmail_and_Laughter

Michael Lohan On Lindsay Lohan Doing Cocaine Only 4 Or 5 Times: “LOL”

Posted on May 6th, 2013 at 12:35 pm


Lindsay Lohan’s dad, Michael Lohan, is reacting to Lindsay’s tell-all interview with Piers Morgan simply saying: “LOL.”

The newly-rehabbed star told the CNN host, “Everyone thinks I’ve done it [cocaine] so many times. But I’ve only done it maybe four or five times in my life. I don’t like it. It reminds me of my dad. I took it four times in a period from about the age of 20 to 23, and I got caught twice.”

In the explosive interview, Lindsay also says she’s never taken heroin or LSD, but she’s tried pot and she liked ecstasy. She admits she takes Adderall “all the time” for ADD and Trazodone if she can’t sleep. Lindsay also insists that she’s given up drinking alcohol, “so it wasn’t a problem for me. I didn’t miss it. It felt good.”

After Michael was blasted in the interview by his famous daughter, he told RumorFix, “I don’t hold it against Lindsay at all.”

But he called her out on not coming clean on her drug and alcohol problems:
“Lindsay only used cocaine four or five times? She doesn’t drink much? She caught me cheating? Really. LOL,” he tells us.

“All I’ll say about Lindsay statements about her own drug use is the first step in getting better is admitting it to yourself and being honest . Lindsay doesn’t have to tell the public what her problems or addictions are. Lindsay knows and God knows and that’s all that matters,” he adds.
