December 1, 2011: Lindsay Lohan Gets Courtney Love as her Sober Coach! (I think I need a drink)
No, it's not April Fools Day.
Lindsay has been following court orders since she was released, and troubled star Courtney Love said she's helping Lohan stay off drugs! Wow!
Of course, Courtney has a habit of making things up or exaggerating a bit, so we don't know for sure if we can take her claim of being Lindsay Lohan's new sober coach that seriously.
Although, in an earlier article, the 47 year old rock star claimed that Lindsay's drug problems are worse than her own:
"She's further down the line than I was" in her issues and says she's Lohan's sobriety coach, "because nobody else will."
A magazine spoke to Courtney Love (who claims she's been sober since 2005) for an article titled, "High Sobriety," which looks at the wealthy among us, who once prided themselves as serious partiers and boasted about their often reckless behavior, now see kicking bad habits as a rite of passage for everyone from "Hollywood players to New York power brokers," and (of course) Courtney Love counts herself as one of them.
Courtney Love gives the magazine an example of some of her coaching techniques she says she's used with Lohan:
"I went up to Lindsay's room one time and there was a show on called '101 Celebrity Oops' and I am like every other one, you know -- boobs out, legs everywhere, throwing sh*t at Madonna, you know whatever. I'm like 'Lindsay, look! Drugs are bad!"
You'd think Lohan's constant legal problems and repeated trips to drug rehab programs would teach her that drugs are bad, but maybe guidance from Courtney is just what the doctor ordered.
Love and Lohan apparently do have a relationship of sorts. Earlier this year, Love told the website The Fix about the time Lohan reached out to her:
"Lindsay Lohan called me after she was arrested. The judge presiding over her case was the same judge who presided over mine. He was a very sweet man. I think he was an ex-alcoholic himself.
I told Lindsay to just get it together and trust the judge, and Lindsay's father called me for advice every day. I'm not even friendly with Lohan and Kelly Osbourne. What I am I, junkie Auntie Mame?"
Love said she wouldn’t have done as many drugs if not for Kurt Cobain. “Before I met Kurt, I was more or less clean,” she told reporters earlier this year.
Perhaps since then, the two have grown closer, but it seems like a case of the blind leading the blind.
No word on whether Lohan has accepted Love’s well-intentioned advances.
