Charlie Sheen Tells Lindsay Lohan: Rehab Sucks

Charlie Sheen spoke with E! on the red carpet of the ‘Scary Movie 5’ premiere the other night, where his late arriving (as usual) co-star Lindsay Lohan was the topic of conversation. The troubled starlet is preparing for her court-mandated rehab stint, which she has to begin by May 2nd.

Asked about what he thought about her latest visit to a facility that will try to help Lohan’s addictions, Sheen, who has had plenty of experience himself with the experience, told Ken Baker, “It’s not my journey, you know. I don’t believe in rehab. I believe in detox, not rehab. But she’ll be all right.”

Offering advice for LiLo during her stay, Sheen suggested, “Bring a book, ’cause those places suck.”

Lindsay Lohan And Grant Bowler Discuss Lifetime Movie ‘Liz & Dick’

Lindsay Lohan talks about how she can relate to Elizabeth Taylor. Lohan is starring as the actress opposite Grant Bowler (as Richard Burton) in the Lifetime movie 'Liz & Dick'

Lifetime has released a trailer and actor commentary for the network’s upcoming original movie ‘Liz & Dick’, premiering November 25th. The Lloyd Kramer directed film stars Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor and Grant Bowler as Richard Burton, chronicling the headline grabbing couple’s relationship.

“‘Liz & Dick’ is about the tumultuous lifelong love affair of Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor,” Bowler says in the behind the scenes clip. “It was the start of the exploitation of celebrity. Lindsay is excellent to work with. She’s pretty much Elizabeth Taylor, reincarnated. Burton went to town on spoiling Elizabeth. They allowed each other to be enormous and big and larger than life. He was so taken with her.”

“The film arcs over their entire lives,” Lohan said of the film, “at how they had to go through life living in the public eye, and how that can tear people apart. I’m a huge Elizabeth Taylor fan. I relate to her on a lot of levels, living in the public eye and dealing with the stress of what other people say, whether it’s true or not. I personally understand Liz because you’re living your life for everyone to see, and people are growing with you. You get to a point where become numb to it, and you just live your live the way you feel you need to live it. I love diamonds, and (Elizabeth) appreciated them and it made her happy. No matter what happened, they always came back to each other. Richard was her one true love.”

Lindsay Lohan Gets Another Chance To Be On Time For Morgue Duty

Lindsay Lohan court close-up

Lindsay Lohan was late and turned away from her first day of community service at the Los Angeles County morgue on Thursday after showing up late, but the singer/actress will get a second chance to appear on time later today. “Lindsay arrived at the morgue approximately 20 minutes late and will be returning for orientation tomorrow,” her publicist Steven Honig said. “Her lateness was due to a combination of not knowing what entrance to go through and confusion caused by the media waiting for her arrival. Lindsay spoke with the supervisors at the morgue. They showed her how to get in, and everything is all cleared up.”

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner ruled Wednesday that LiLo had to post $100,000 bail for her probation revocation and that she would have to perform two eight hour days at the morgue two times a week until her probation revocation hearing on November 2nd.

Lindsay Lohan Taken Into Custody After Probation Revoked

Lindsay Lohan in court

Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner revoked Lindsay Lohan’s probation at a hearing earlier today. The actress and singer was taken into custody on $100,000 bail after Sautner ruled that she was in violation of her probation by booted from a community service assignment. Lohan had been slow to serve any of the 360 hour probation she was ordered to serve at the Downtown Women’s Center shelter, calling the experience at the center “not fulfilling” in a probation progress report.

“Her probation would have been over last year, had she done what was expected of her,” Sautner said. The judge added that should Lohan make bail and want to “mitigate” her potential punishment before a hearing on November 2nd, she would be advised to work no less than two eight-hour shifts a week at the morgue toward the 120 morgue hours that were also part of her probation requirements.

Michael Lohan Reaction To Lindsay’s House Arrest Party

June 28, 2011 – Lindsay Lohan has attracted more controversy while serving a house arrest sentence. The singer and actress had parties at her home during house arrest, but a judge rules she was only guilty of poor judgment. TV Guide’s “Hollywood 411” talks to Lindsay’s father Michael Lohan about his daughter’s most recent headlines.

“I’m not saying she should be in jail, but I’m saying the court should have said you can’t drink or use drugs,” Michael said about his daughter’s house arrest rules. “The only way she’s gonna get her life right, is if she stays away from all alcohol and all drugs.” Michael added that “our relationship is fine, but as you can see I’m still her dad, I’m not going to be her friend about this. I just want things to get back on track for Lindsay, for her life, but also for my family. There can’t be any dissension in the ranks between Dina and I. We both have to be on the same page. If it wasn’t for our falling out, none of this would have happened with Lindsay to begin with.”

The video at YouTube has since been removed.
