When the news spread that Lindsay Lohan finally got a job modeling with designer Philipp Plein, I didn't believe she was serious. Don't get me wrong. I want her to make a Britney-style comeback as much as the next Mean Girls fan, but do I think she can? I'm not so sure.
The biggest red flag is that Lindsay is steering clear of what she's most known for, drug abuse and jail time aside. She's a great actress and yet she's content with modeling for a fashion collection. Hey ... I understand. Times are tough. She has to take what she can get, right? Jobs are hard to find and jobs are hard to keep. Which is exactly why she shouldn't be risking it all over again by breaking the number one employee rule of all time ...
Ross Gellar from Friends once said that you're not supposed to dip your pen in the company ink. I guess Lindsay missed that episode.
Rumors are swirling that our little LiLo has been getting cozy with Plein, also known as her boss and the designer who hired her for the shoot. According to reports, she has been kissing him in public and even spending the night at his hotel. Just when we thought she was getting on the right track, she's boarding right back on the crazy train.
The thing is, I really feel for Lindsay. I want people in the entertainment industry to take her seriously again. But, they sure as hell aren't going to by the way she's acting. And while Plein has claimed he's very pleased with Lindsay's work, what is he basing that on? How are we supposed to believe she's making an honest living when she and her boss are shacking up after hours?
So Lindsay Lohan is potentially sleeping with the first person to give her a job in years. Not cool, LiLo. I was rooting for you.
Do you think Lindsay could make a real comeback?
