December 8, 2006 was indeed a busy day for Lindsey. It was reported by the National Enquirer that Linds engages in the practice of cutting! Let’s hope this is/was not true!
This photo was seemingly their only bit of evidence along with testimony by an unnamed source who claimed that Linds, despondent over the state of her failing career, was seen cutting herself with a butter knife in a hotel room! In the same article, the NE quoted another unnamed source as saying that he “watched Lindsay Lohan snort cocaine and pop OxyContin – then wash it all down with vodka.” Who hasn’t been there? There’s more: “I’ve spent many booze and drug-fuelled nights with Lindsay, and I’m only coming forward now because I want to save her life…At the rate she’s going, Lindsay is headed for an early grave…I’ve known Lindsay for the past two years, and she absolutely loves to get wasted. She makes Courtney Love look like a girl scout.” Courtney Love? Piling it on a little thick, aren’t we?
Meanwhile, and in the most bizarre bit of Lohan then-news, it was revealed that Lindsay claimed to have been contacted by Vice President Al Gore who was interested in helping her clean up her tarnished image. In a leaked email written by Linds, she claimed: “Al Gore will help me. He came up to me and said he would be very happy to have a conversation with me.” It gets better: “Hilary (sic) Clinton, Bill Clinton…would be willing, if we just ask. If we just ASK.” This email only got more odd from there. She claimed she was interested in getting politicians to assist her in her plan to “release a politically/morally correct, fully adequite [sic] letter to the press,” as a means of assisting her in spreading her views on “how our society should be educated for the better of our country. Our people. Because I have such an impact on our younger generations, as well as generations older than me. Which we all know and can obviously see.”
Of course, none of this was true. A spokesman for the Oscar winner smothered these flames immediately: “I can confirm for you that Mr. Gore has only met Ms. Lohan once, very briefly, at the GQ Men of the Year dinner last week. There were hundreds of other guests.”
Here she is photographed exactly two years ago today.
