All right, so it looks like Lindsay Lohan might be back to the point where her legal woes are almost behind her and she is hopefully staying as far away from drugs and alcohol as she possibly can, as evidenced by her latest probation hearing where Judge Stephanie Sautner praised LiLo for finally cleaning up her act (*knocks on wood*). TMZ reports:
Lindsay Lohan just got yet another rave review from Judge Stephanie Sautner during her probation progress report hearing this AM — as Sautner proudly announced, “You’re in the home stretch!” The judge was impressed — that for the 3rd time in a row, Lindsay completed her required community service and therapy sessions. Sautner gushed, “You seem to be getting your life back on track.”
Lindsay has ONE MORE progress hearing set for March 29th — by which date she must complete her final 14 days of community service at the L.A. County morgue, and 5 more therapy sessions. If she stays on track, Lindsay will be placed on informal probation, meaning all she has to do is obey all laws.
Look, we’ve hammered Lindsay for being unprofessional and irresponsible in the past, but ultimately, we’re not praying for her to fail. We want to see Lindsay back on her feet, because really, no one wants to actually see someone suffer. Did we call out her shit in the past? Of course, but there’s a difference between calling for someone’s failure, and watching someone act like a nutjob and go “hey, that’s kinda messed up”. If she’s actually serious about addressing her behavior and the reason behind it, good for her. That being said, we’re not going to coddle her if she screws up again. Lock that shit down, LiLo.
