Lindsay Lohan's Daytime Drama
Forget the drinking: No one stands up Matt Lauer!

Lindsay Lohan was back in court after failing an alcohol test, but day timers are clicking their tongues at LiLo for other reasons. It seems Matt Lauer flew to all the way to the West Coast to catch up with La Lohan on Tuesday and the diva left him hanging!
"Some of you may have heard that I was actually with Lindsay on Tuesday afternoon at her home in Los Angeles," Lauer said on "Today" June 23, 2011. "We were supposed to sit down for an interview to talk about her current situation and her plans for the future. At the last minute, Lindsay and her people did express concern about the timing of the interview and it was canceled. I think we're learning more this morning about the reasons for their concerns."
Lauer was referring to Lohan's most recent day in court, which came because she failed an alcohol test. While she ultimately was returned to house arrest, she was given a scolding (for whatever that's worth!) and told not to have any more parties.
"Don't give people reason to hate you. Don't do stupid things that fly in the spirit of the court's order," Judge Stephanie Sautner told Lohan. "You know I sentenced you to jail. You know I didn't sentence you to house arrest, and what do you do? You have barbecues at your house so your neighbors are writing letters about you."
While Lauer pointed to Lohan's current troubles as the probable reason for her cancelation, industry buzz is still offering various reasons, ranging from Lohan's demand for money to her refusal to do more than a 15-minute interview, so the rest of the NBC gossip shows could have their own fresh Lohan tidbits.
MSN TV is curious to see whether Lohan reschedules with Lauer, which depends as much on her interest as it does on whether Lauer is willing to make another trip West.
Eventually, people have to learn moderation to co-exist in a chemically dependant world. The faster one learns this the better for them. There are a few lucky who if they go cold-turkey can not nearly attain drug abuse, because their system rejects it. Drug use is like weight control. It takes discipline and moderation.
Dry alcoholics or 'reformed' drug users (typically more with dry alcoholics) reformed drug users typically go on prescription drugs that they were 'self-medicating' still cry of their woes of their alcoholic days, versus the ones that learn moderation..
Part of correction is that people need to explore their own deviances within an expected amount of privacy. To take away all boundaries of privacy which is a primal instinct is unhealthy. That is why the correctional system doesn't work as it operates today.
Being completely dry isn't always the answer, but learning moderation is. Functionality with enjoyed activities. The only aspect of corrections that works is course of time. To wish death to drug addicts is cruel and inhumane. To go completely dry is brutal and a shock to the system that feels like death warmed over.
Her neighbors are writing letters about her. We are becoming a policed-state nation. Give people who don't have position a way to pull someone down that does and here we have our own personal hell...
People really need to mind their own business and redefine cool pre-invasion of privacy era. Give people the space to develop their own character that fall within the restraints of non-offensives. Variety is the beauty of life. The spectrum breathes color back into a dim dismal bleak way of governing.
The media needs to completely forget about her. Once she loses all attention, drops off the radar, and can't get work, she will finally be punished - all brought on her self.
Hey Lindsay, better practice the phrase "Would you like fries with that?"
I would like to know why the Judge Stephanie Sautner sent her home. LeeLow..Laylo...LaLa...whateverLo, needs to be jailed for her own good at this point. She continues to thumb her nose at the courts and the law and the judges may spit fire and vinegar, but they let her go home. I know this has been said before, but if this had been some kid from the subburbs, Compton, East L.A. or anyone else that hadn't stared in Hollywood movie, they would have been jailed long ago. The courts need to pull their heads out of their backsides and treat this girl like the lowlife addict that she is and put her in a 8 x 10 cell for a few years.
I feel bad for the Today show and Matt because this was a big waste of their time and money. (But they should have known this). The state of California continues to waste money on this chick trying to teach her how to be responsible and not self destruct and it doesn't seem to do any good.
Example - having your friends over for drinks and a b-bque - bad choice while under home arrest - doing a professional interview while being sober - could have been good if that's actually what happened. But she keeps doing things that just blow up on her.
Matt - do yourself a favor, forget about her and stay in NYC
