I can’t even be bothered separating Lindsay and Amanda posts anymore, so just come in here and we’ll catch up with both of them, yeah?
Okay, let’s start with Lindsay today.
First up, here’s the first teaser trailer for Liz and Dick:
Don’t judge me, but I’m totally excited about this and will absolutely be watching it.
The always entertaining Dina Lohan has said that if she were to do it all again, she ‘might not’ have put LiLo into showbiz. Her choice of words in ‘might not’ make me giggle, because anyone with a braincell can figure out that she would absolutely do it all over again, because she has money and who cares how fucked up Lindsay is because of it? That being said, even if Lindsay wasn’t in showbusiness I don’t think she had a chance in hell of turning out okay with Michael and Dina as her parents, unfortunately. In fact, I think she would’ve ended up like Amber from Teen Mom.
Here are some of the other key quotes from Dina to the New York Daily News:
I was born into the business. My mother was an entertainer. It was natural. But yes, in the next life, I might not do it.
I’m certainly not making excuses for Lindsay’s behavior. But she’s a 26-year-old woman.
I don’t party with Lindsay. In the early years, I would go with her to clubs, because I wanted to see who the enablers were.
Let’s stop there, and look at this photo for a minute:
That’s from this time last year. Okay? Okay. Let’s move on.
I have questions about [Lindsay's assistant] Gavin. There have been numerous incidents with Lindsay where he has been present. It’s all very sketchy.
My 80-year-old mother was there, and she’s Italian-American, and to be able to have a glass of red wine there for her is normal for our family. Some people who want to quit drinking do it cold turkey and some do it gradually — you want to keep a balance. I don’t know what’s a right way or a wrong way. – On Dina’s decision to serve liquor at her 50th birthday party this year.
Providing us with a nice segue from Lindsay to Amanda, we have Goodyear, who have offered to provide both girls with free driving lessons via my favourite form of communication, the open letter. You can read both letters here.
Now, let’s get to Amanda, because she’s having a busy week, and honestly, the sooner I get this done the better, because I have to be up at 3am to catch a flight, and it’s 8pm now and I’ve got shit to do. For those of you interested, I’m in New Orleans at the moment, which is one of my favourite cities to far (although I think that about basically everywhere), and I’m flying to Albuquerque before heading to Santa Fe tomorrow. Also, in a completely unrelated sidenote, I decided today that if I was going to open up a knick knack shop in Albuquerque I would call it Albu-QUIRKY! But since I’m Australian and don’t particularly want to own a knick knack store, feel free to take that and use it as your own if you live there and are interested in that. My gift to you.
You like how I’m like ‘I’ve got shit to do!’ and then ramble on and on? Yeah. Okay, let’s actually get to Amanda now.
So the other day she was walking down the street and was being photographed, and she asked the man to delete a photo because ‘[she] needs to look beautiful,’ and when he didn’t she pinched him a whole lot. It’s totally bizarre, and you can watch it here. It’s definitely worth the time, it’s made it into my top 10 paparazzi videos of all time already.
Meanwhile, Amanda’s lawyer, agent and publicist have all ditched her over the past few weeks, according to TMZ. They say that all three said that they never had any problems with her until recently, saying that she’s become ‘extremely difficult’ and ‘uncontrollable.’
And, last but not least, she’s also been charged with two counts of driving on a suspended license, so LiLo, there you go, if she’s convicted she can face up to six months in jail for each offence.
What a great week for my favourite trainwrecks. I am loving life.
