Lindsay Lohan is going back to her home away from the Chateau Marmont, an L.A. courtroom, tomorrow, to show the judge that she completed all 240 hours of her community service. The prosector Terry White has been going over the hours that LiLo supposedly completed through a London-based organization called Community Service Volunteers and he squinted his eyes over her trying to pass off meet-and-greets with audience members after Speed-The-Plow as community service. LiLo also tried to say that letting “disadvantaged youth” follow her around should count as a service to the community. LiLo has a point. If those kids were told, “Whatever she did, do the opposite and you’ll be fine,” after following her around, then that truly is community service. Now TMZ is saying that LiLo has brought Esurance into her schemes.
TMZ says that last Friday, LiLo got Esurance, the company she did a Super Bowl commercial for, to donate $10,000 to Community Service Volunteers. LiLo supposedly convinced the higher-ups at Esurance to donate to CSV by saying that she likes what the organization has done to help poor children. Esurance dropped the donation in CSV’s hands last Saturday. The prosecutor could ask CSV for more details about LiLo’s community service hours, so that $10k donation could look like a bribe to the eyes of the judge. But LiLo’s long-suffering attorney Shawn Holley says that TMZ has really sunk to the bottom of the sewer (Say hi to White Oprah while you’re there, TMZ!) for even insinuating that the donation was anything but a charitable act on St. LiLo’s part:
“TMZ has stooped to a new low. To take Lindsay’s positive efforts in supporting CSV and turn them into something negative simply to sell a story is offensive. Lindsay has been involved in helping to raise funds for this wonderful organization since she started her community service there and she has continued her work as a volunteer, even though her community service was completed weeks ago.”
You know, I kind of believe LiLo (not really). Not because I think she’s a charitable soul who cares about poor children, but because I’d like to think she’s a better schemer than that. Why bribe the middle man when she can go directly to the source (aka the prosecutor). She could easily get Terry White to okay her community service hours by threatening physical harm on him by getting White Oprah to send him nudes.
And here’s LiLo at LAX a couple of weeks ago.
