An Open Letter to Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan
Dear Lindsay,

Well? What's next? The world is waiting. Remember that little rehab stint and the comeback that typically comes after it?

Everyone is rooting for you. We loved you in The Parent Trap - those freckles! The accent! Twins! We loved Mean Girls and the adorable-turned-bitchy Cady that you played. Everyone liked the Lindsay with boobs and red hair, and we really couldn't get enough. We couldn't wait to see what grown-up movie you would do next...

Then came A Prairie Home Companion, Just My Luck, Bobby, Chapter 27, Georgia Rule, and I Know Who Killed Me. To break...

Movie Review: 'I Know Who Killed Me' Might Have Been A Guilty Pleasure, Now It's Just Sad

July 27th, 2007 10:33pm EDT
I Know Who Killed Me
Until very recently, the prospect of ''I Know Who Killed Me'' might have seemed utterly tantalizing. Perpetual train wreck Lindsay Lohan plays a stripper, and famously suffered bruises all over her body when she got all Method-y and actually trained for the role on a pole. It might have been fun, if only in a late-night, laugh-out-loud kind of way.

Now, after yet another arrest and further evidence of a worsening substance abuse problem, it just seems sad - a sad waste of talent, a sad lack of judgment, a sad course for a promising career.

But the film itself, which wasn't screene...

Lindsay's new movie I Know Who Killed Me hits theaters today, but that's not what all the recent Li-Lo talk has been about this week. Apparently the young star has fallen off the wagon again and gotten herself into more trouble.

Early Tuesday morning Lindsay was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving and possession of cocaine. She had recently finished a rehab stint at the Promises rehab center, the same place Britney Spears spent her rehab time. And if it's any indica...
