There was a time when Lindsay Lohan was a promising young actress who also happened to be a stunner, as well. Of course, there was also a time when I was voted the best speller in my 4th grade class. Point is, you can’t live in the past. Lindsay may be rapidly approaching sexed-out junkie has-been status, but she’s still maybe smart enough to realize this. Which is why she’s staking a claim to a reality TV show to chronicle her attempted comeback.
The kicker here is she’s turned to Britney Spears’ manager, Larry Rudolph, for help to get this thing going. Rudolph’s done some good work with Brit, but this may be a bit much, even for him. Both these chicks have a history of volatile behavior, but it’s all a matter of degrees. Britney’s a car bomb. Lindsay Lohan is Hiroshima.
