Lindsay Lohan is safely ensconced at the Betty Ford Center rehab facility in Rancho Mirage, CA … TMZ has learned.Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ … Lindsay checked in late Thursday night … barely dodging a looming arrest warrant.We…
Lindsay Lohan is on The Late Show tonight on CBS at 11:35p and David Letterman asked her if she is supposed to be in rehab right now. She then responded like a bitch to him and said “Do you not watch anything that goes on? May 2nd.” He then tried to get out of her why she is going there for three months and she dodged those questions. All he did get out of her was, “No, I think, to be honest, I’m the happiest when I’m working and the healthiest, and I think this an opportunity for me to, you know, focus on what I love in life. And I don’t think it’s a bad thing. I think it’s a blessing and not a curse.” So is that her way of saying she will be acting the whole time she is in there?
She should’ve known he was going to ask her about rehab, only the Jimmys wouldn’t have. Jay Leno and Letterman are not afraid (of the publicists) to ask the tough questions.
I’m glad CB covered the latest cracktastrophe from Lindsay Lohan, because I’m really over it at this point. I guess I should say that I’m in a constant state of “Jesus, what did she do NOW?” with Lindsay at this point. This is the second week (IN A ROW) in which Lindsay did something dumb on a Friday afternoon after most people were done for the day. Two Fridays ago, she totaled her (rented) Porsche on the PCH. This Friday she was so “exhausted” she was unresponsive for hours. Allegedly. Sort of.
CB initially thought that this Friday’s incident was proof that Lindsay was going even further downhill fast, and that the end was nigh. But as time passed, even CB realized that Lindsay is simply the same ol’ cracked-out mess that she always is, no better and no worse. I agree with some of the commenters claiming that the now-official version of what went down – Lindsay was initially “unresponsive” but the paramedics didn’t take her to the hospital and she’s totally fine – is the cover story for something more crackie. But for now, Lindsay herself is pushing the “exhaustion” story. She got on Twitter (I forgot she was on Twitter) and wrote this:
CB and I were trying to figure out if the “85 hours in 4 days” figure is some crack-math by Lindsay. What does “85 hours” include? Does it include the hours of downtime waiting to go on set? Does it include all of the hours of “preparation” (coke) to get into character? Did Lindsay really mean to write “85 lines in 4 days”? Ugh, whatever.
My real theory about this incident is that Lindsay really was “passed out”. I think she had been drinking and mixing medications and she unconscious, not asleep. And I think Lindsay is like that a lot of the time – mixing prescription meds with illegal drugs and alcohol to create a cracked-out cocktail that makes her barely lucid. But my theory doesn’t have an answer for “Why didn’t the paramedics just take her to the hospital?” I don’t know.

A day removed from ringing in her 25th birthday, Lindsay Lohan continued to enjoy her freedom from house arrest with a trip to the beach at Paradise Cove in Malibu on Sunday (July 3).
Joined by her brother, Michael Jr., and sister, Ali, the trio of siblings met up with a few friends as the “Mean Girls” star covered her face with a baseball cap while donning a cute little speckled black dress and a camera strapped around her neck.
As previously reported by GossipCenter, Miss Lohan spent the previous evening celebrating her 25th with a low-key affair at the popular seaside restaurant Geoffrey’s.
Commenting on his daughter’s decision to pass up on a more lavish affair, LiLo’s dad, Michael, told press, “She opted to stay in California instead of coming to New York because she has community service and wanted to concentrate on that. She’s doing really, really, really well.”

Lindsay Lohan is adamant she did NOT drink wine, beer or liquor during her stint on house arrest … insisting her dirty test was caused by a fermented tea that contains a TEEEENY amount of alcohol.
Lohan has been telling friends she’s been drinking her favorite kombucha tea again … the same tea that caused her probation officer to raise a red flag earlier this year because it contains alcohol. The company behind the drink claims the alcohol content is less than .05%.
Of course, the judge ruled that Lindsay is ALLOWED to consume alcohol during her house arrest sentence … so the dirty test didn’t matter anyway.
TMZ spoke with Lindsay about the situation … and she told us, “I am responsible, and I’m following the rules and obeying my judge and the Los Angeles judicial system.”
She adds, ” I’d like to do what I must to get my film career back and the respect of directors, actors, writers, studio heads, fans and so on.”
Lindsay turned herself over to authorities today and began serving out her 35-day house arrest sentence … but what does that actually mean for Lohan?
L.A. Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said today in a statement:
“She is now confined to the interior premises of her home at all times.”
Translation: No clubbing, shopping, dining out for at least two weeks.
Whitmore also explained Lohan was granted house arrest due to good behavior but also because of overcrowding at the jails and budgetary constraints. And her ankle bracelet will not be detecting drugs or alcohol. Whew!
If Lohan behaves herself and stays at home, her sentence could be reduced from 35 days to just 14. If police are alerted to any movement outside the luxurious Venice Beach pad, via her tracking device, the sentence could be extended or she may even be required to do real jail time.
Whitmore declined to say whether any exceptions would allow Lohan to leave her home, but she might be granted leave for nearby work-related appointments. The actress is gearing up to star as the wife of John Gotti, Jr. in a biopic of the infamous New York mob family, but shooting is set to start later this year so it isn’t expected to interfere with Lindsay’s time at home.
Lohan will still be required to perform 480 hours of community service, but the judge forbade the actress from doing so while under house arrest.
Have fun at home, Linds … hey, it's better than a jail cell!
Lindsay Lohan has gotten a restraining order against a man she Tweeted about in recent weeks. She spotted him outside her home, and in the order claims he has been harassing and stalking her for two years, but that his activity has escalated over the past month.
The temporary order against David Cocordan notes that Lohan says he has come to her home at least three times, followed her in public and sent her hundreds of text messages, including ones so sexually explicit that Lohan says in the filing:
“I am afraid that this text message shows that Mr. Cocordan intends to sexually assault me.”
LAPD’s Threat Management Department is assigned to the case. Suspicion is that Cocordan has mental issues and is schizophrenic. …
No word on how Cocordan obtained Lohan's phone number.

What’s a girl to do when she’s got a court hearing for grand theft, AND she’s already on probation? Obv.
Lindsay Lohan stopped by Byron & Tracy salon in LA to get a last minute ‘do before she faces grand theft charges in court around 1:30pm Wednesday, but who could blame her? There’s going to be so many darn photographers there capturing her every move, the girls gotta look good.
An X17 photographer who was on the scene when Lilo was getting primped Tuesday night tells us:
“Lindsay looked like she didn’t have a care in the world. Either she’s sure she’s going to get off tomorrow, and not go to jail, or she’s just a really good actress. I honestly think she knows she’s not going to go to jail.”
We have to agree, she knows she’s not gonna do hard time for this little mishap. The whole thing seems a bit odd to us anyway, and it’s fairly unlikely Lindsay will go back to jail ‘
