For weeks the rumors were buzzing but finally, it was made official: Lindsay Lohan had cancelled her 21st birthday party at Los Angeles nightclub hotspot PURE. To say the least, the cancellation was very unlike Lindsay, infamous for her incessant partying and underage drinking which all lead to her drunken hit-and-run. While I am happy to see that the wild starlet attempted to take her recovery seriously, I can’t help but speculate the sincerity in her decision. Could this have been yet another media stunt for the headline-hungry Lohan?
Lohan’s rep released a statement explaining that in exchange for canceling the hyped party (that she was already paid for, with a signed contract), Lindsay agreed to make an appearance at the nightclub PURE in the future. In turn, PURE, issued a statement wishing Lindsay well on her road to recovery. But it seems like PURE is part of the problem. Clearly, these nightclubs advocate underage drinking by allowing Lindsay to frequent their hotspots. It’s just unfortunate that the clubs themselves aren’t receiving any of the blame.
Now Lindsay is legal and appears to be taking her sobriety seriously. While in an outpatient facility, Lindsay stayed true to her word and had a sober day at the beach for her 21st birthday, opting for Smartwater instead of vodka and Redbull.
Now that Lindsay has entered into her second stage of rehab, I hope her progress is as good as the tabloids are making it out to be. It is reported that she is recognizing the harm she did in the past and has started to write letters to friends apologizing for her pre-rehab antics. Now, if we can only find a way to keep Lindsay's mother, Dina, out of the clubs Lindsay might have a fighting chance at sobriety.
