TMZ reports that Lindsay, just two weeks after having her appendix removed (and boozing it up the next night) has checked herself into rehab.
In a statement issued through her rep, Leslie Sloane Zelnik, Lindsay says "I have made a proactive decision to take care of my personal health. I appreciate your well wishes and ask that you please respect my privacy at this time."
Understand that the "Please respect my privacy" line is really just Hollywood-speak for "please don't ever stop watching every single second of what I am doing."
We at Media Morgue applaud this latest publicity stunt and hope that Lindsay will clean herself up enough so that she can continue to give us so much great trainwreck news to cover. Now the only question is, how long will it last before she falls off the wagon? Probably about the time the press has grown tired of the sober Lindsay Lohan and she decides it's time to get back into the news cycle again.
How soon before this becomes a movie of the week?
