Lindsay Lohan’s father, Michael, is just so intensely earnest these days, that I find myself wondering if he’s still the same old nut job we know and love to hate, or if he genuinely has found Jesus and is as obsessed with being a good father as he’s trying to make us all believe. Now, he’s planning on visiting with Lindsay during an outpatient therapy session, after having had met up with his previously estranged daughter during a two-day visit at the Cirque Lodge treatment facility in Sundance, Utah. For his next visit, he’ll be taking Linds to an undisclosed part of the state for their five-day visit, according to the New York Daily News:
“They believe Michael’s the best person for Lindsay to be with now,” one insider said.
“Not only is he her dad – someone with her best interests at heart – but he’s also someone who successfully turned his own life around after battling substance abuse.”
I certainly hope, for Lindsay’s sake, that he’s actually being genuine about wanting to help her out and isn’t simply trying to get the dog-and-pony-show that has been her life until now back on track to making her parents some money again. Which reminds me, remember when all those child stars from the 80s started divorcing their parents? Did our current starlets learn nothing from their predecessors? Seriously, it’s like basic Hollywood History 101. I don’t expect them to know superfluous information like when the country was founded, but at least they should keep track of stuff that actually pertains to them. Like the two Coreys.
