Yesterday we learned that Lindsay Lohan had checked herself in to an in-patient rehab facility outside of the LA city limits but today we get to see a photo (that CLEARLY wasn’t a staged photo op) of Lindsay enjoying her last moments of freedom before she packed up her bags and made her way to rehab. RadarOnline managed to get their hands on a photo of L. Lo that features the troubled starlet reading a self-help book written by Matthew Edlund titled The Power of Rest: Why Sleep Alone Is Not Enough. A 30-Day Plan to Reset Your Body which, I’m assuming, is meant to show the world that Lindsay is ready to rehabilitate her life:
Lindsay Lohan spent her last night of freedom before rehab reading a self-help book — and only RadarOnline.com has the exclusive photos of the troubled starlet from inside her West Hollywood apartment. Wearing a loose fitting black sleeveless dress with matching sunglasses, LiLo was snapped on her balcony at dusk reading The Power of Rest, written by Dr. Matthew Edlund. It’s the latest statement from Lohan who is attempting to undergo an image makeover, before a critical October 22 court hearing that could end with her sent back to jail for 30 days for flunking a drug test … According to our source, Lohan is “tired of being the party girl” and turned to the self-help book for guidance to deal with a “terrible” and disrupted sleeping pattern. “Lindsay hopes to use this book to help restructure her sleeping patterns so she can function better,” said the insider. “She has been shooting films into the wee hours of the morning since she was 11 or 12 years old and then sleeping in trailers while on the set … She was recommended the book by both a doctor and a friend and hopes it will guide her in the right direction.”
My guess is that the implied message of this CLEARLY not-staged photo is to show the world that Lindsay’s problems lie in her inability to sleep properly and not in her rampant and uncontrollable substance abuse? I mean … yeah. To be honest, the mere sight of Lindsay holding a book is a bit comical to me … especially the sight of her holding a book opened perfectly in the center while she reads standing up, leaning against a balcony railing … with her sunglasses on. I mean, that’s how I read books, don’t you? I suspect the real truth about this photo lies in how much it cost for her to pose for the snapshot. I understand Lindsay has been selling staged photos to the paparazzi in order to make some extra money. I’m not sure how much she got for this photo but I hope not a lot … for a CLEARLY not-staged photo, it’s not very good.
