I am vaguely aware that there is a young celebrity named Lindsay Lohan. Our dear Stacy is gloating over her break-up with her lesbian lover of two years, Samantha Ronson (whom the prudes at Us magazine called “Sam,” which strikes me as intentionally deceitful), in hopes that her next lover will be male — and to work in photos of lesbians in bikinis in accord with one of his rules for generating traffic — so I went on a little Google look-see.
I didn’t find any stories about Lohan now dating a man. But the Detroit Free Press had this:
Earlier this week, [singer and former member of Fleetwood Mac] Stevie Nicks had a strong reaction to the rumor that Lohan wants to buy the rights to her life story. “Over my dead body,” Nicks told the New York Times. “She needs to stop doing drugs and get a grip. Then maybe we’ll talk.” Nicks has been drug-free for 15 years, after 20 years of cocaine, alcohol and prescription drug addiction.
“[I made fun of Lohan last year but] now it seems like she’s in the throes of real trouble …. It feels like kicking her when she’s down. Believe it or not, I might kind of take her out for the time being. That’s a little hard to find the comedy in.”
Us noted that Lohan had given the magazine extended interviews by phone and e-mail on her break-up in which she was crying and “seemed agitated” and that sources had told them they feared Lohan is suicidal.
Kathy Griffin is the only celebrity I can think of who is not dead to me for voting for Obama.
When Margaret was dying in the fall of 2004 — it was about three months from her diagnosis as terminal until she died — we watched Kathy Griffin’s stand-up comedy show, “My Life on the D-List,” which became the basis for her Bravo reality show of the same name. Kathy Griffin made Margaret laugh out loud, as hard as she’d ever laughed in her life.
I will forgive Kathy Griffin for anything. I will love her forever and ever.
Plus, she does love her gays and lesbians.
But since Kathy Griffin is the celebrity other celebrities fear and flee in hopes of staying out of her act — like that will help — when Kathy Griffin says she’s laying off Lindsay Lohan and doesn’t want to kick the poor kid when she’s down, then really, everyone else should, too. Lohan is teetering on the brink even more than most of us do when our hearts are broken. Certainly Easter is the time of year to root for her, to stretch out a friendly hand and remind her that she can resurrect her life, get clean and sober, and come through this experience a better and wiser woman.
Bonus video — Kathy Griffin didn’t think Prop 8 was funny, either, and now I love her even more:
