So today, Lindsay Lohan has to go to court to explain how it wasn’t her complete lack of work ethic that got her kicked out of community service, but those super mean volunteers who were helping out a woman’s shelter. So Lindsay has decided to finally buckle down and focus on getting her life back on track. Or she’s just going to write a check to a charity and use that as goodwill to keep herself out of jail because you can, in fact, throw money at a problem until it goes away. Don’t believe me? Here’s the exact quote from a “source” that spoke to RadarOnline about Lindsay’s blatant goodwill grab:
“Lindsay was really keen to make a donation to the charity,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline. “Her main motivating factor was that she hoped to make children’s lives easier by way of their own mothers, as her own mom has done for her.”
“It’s kind of convenient timing,” the source says. “Just as she gets all this negative publicity and is getting ready to head back to court, she’s shown to have a good heart and a caring nature. I’m sure it can only help her case when she has to plead before the judge.”
So basically, Lindsay wants to raise these kids the way her mom raised her, which I’m just going to read as her showing up with $50,000 worth of gin. “Here kids, drink this until you forget you’re dead inside! Just be careful: eventually, you build up a resistance. But that’s where all this coke comes in!” If you’re going to go with great representations of motherhood, maybe aim higher than Dina Lohan. Hell, Joan Crawford was a better mother than Dina. Also, you know it’s bad when even the source you paid to tell everyone about your charitable donation can’t even pretend it’s not just a way to distract everyone from your court case and meth face.
