The other night I had a meltdown of monumental proportions. It may have been a personal best in fact. And I had it right here on twitter for your viewing pleasure. I saw all the discussion about it, apparently some of you needed to grab some popcorn and witness the trainwreck and tweet about it with your friends as much as I needed to just go ahead and get drunk and lose my shit. So, I’m glad I could be of service. I remind you all of this to bring you some news from another alcohol (and possibly drugs allegedly) fueled meltdown from my personal meltdown role model, Lindsey Lohan.
In case you have been leading a productive life all day and missed it. Lilo and her mother Dina were out until 4 a.m. in NYC doing some mother daughter bonding as they are want to do. When the duo
stumbled out of the club at closing time decided to call it an evening, there was a alcohol infused brawl because Dina wanted Lindsey to have her driver take her home to Long Island and Lindsey wanted Dina to cab it so she could go to her hotel room in the city. Continue reading
Lindsay Lohan at the A&E Up-Front Event last Wednesday promoting her upcoming Lifetime Movie Liz and Dick. She will be playing Liz.
I tuned into SNL last night for the first time in I don’t know how long to see how Lindsay Lohan would fair in her first acting slot since her tragic spiral into drugs and alcohol. Maybe I have finally gotten too old for SNL. It seemed to be so good when I was a kid who would stay up late to watch it against my parents wishes. Or it jumped the shark over a decade ago when I stopped caring that I would miss it by going out. Nevertheless, I gave it my best shot and despite not recognizing many people in the cast I hoped to be entertained.
You would think that with a week to learn lines, and as pumped up for the show as Lindsay was she would have known her stuff at least as well, if not better than the rest of the cast. Sadly, that was not the case. The opening monologue reminded me of the Disney movie, Cinderella when the mice and the birds scramble around trying to finish making Cinderella’s dress for the ball. It was like nothing was ready and we were watching Kenan Thompson, Kristen Wiig and Jimmy Fallon flit around her like Cinderella’s birds trying to make last minute adjustments. This made it all the more odd when the Real Housewives of Disney bit came on just afterwards. The RHOD skit was the best segment on the show with the SNL ladies doing a great job and Lindsay having the benefit of unlimited reshooting. The rest of the segments, or at least the ones I saw before nodding off, consisted of Lindsay stammering through her lines despite reading every word off cue cards. How is it possible that she managed not to memorize anything? Hasn’t she spent the last few years doing lines? Did any of y’all watch this sad attempt at a comeback? Was it just me or was it pretty awful?
