Lindsay Lohan Mentoring Underprivileged Teen Girls Is a Terrible Idea

Say What!? 7

Lindsay LohanGiven my entertainment-news druthers, I don't normally jump at the opportunity to write about an unconfirmed piece of celebrity gossip, but this particular unconfirmed piece of celebrity gossip is so deranged, I have to share it with you: Lindsay Lohan may soon be mentoring underprivileged teen girls.

Yes. Just ... roll that little nugget around in your brain a little. Lindsay Lohan as a mentor. To young teen girls. Because Lindsay has "overcome so much adversity." And has so much wisdom to share.

Say it with me: OH MY GOD.

Rumor has it that Lohan is currently in talks with Trinity Athletics, a gym in Johns Creek, Georgia where underprivileged girls can get scholarships to learn to tumble and cheer. Apparently the Atlanta Baby & I Foundation (a charity to which Lohan donated $50,000 in 2011) founder recently told Yahoo,

(I contacted Lindsay's team) about mentoring young girls at a nearby gym, where the owner has given a lot of her cheerleading hopefuls free grants to be able to cheer and follow their dreams, some even Olympic hopefuls. This is something that is still in the working stages, where Lindsay will be a possible mentor to these young girls for a day to uplift them and let them know she too has struggled and overcome so much adversity in life.

I ... uh ... wow. Look, I don't mean to be a total asshole, but exactly what adversity has Lindsay Lohan actually overcome? Because from where I stand, it sure looks like she's neck-deep in her own self-created problems, just like she's been for the last few years. For crying out loud, she's actually due in court on March 18 to face three charges, including lying to the police.

I mean, can you think of a more inappropriate person to be mentoring teen girls? I honestly can't. Okay, maybe Chris Brown. But Lindsay Lohan is a pretty close second.

Trinity Athletics owner Cori Davenport told Yahoo that it was by no means a done deal, although she certainly sounded open to the idea:

We have yet to make any arrangements with Ms. Lohan about mentoring our girls. We are very busy at the moment on focusing on our upcoming NCA Nationals and that is our only focus presently. I believe everyone deserves a second chance, and everyone makes mistakes. I applaud Ms. Lohan for wanting to make a difference in people's lives, especially young girls so they don't take the same road she has.

However, I'm guessing her organization got a flurry of dumbfounded/horrified responses from parents and press, because this is what's currently posted on their website:

Any news reports, gossip sites or message boards that are featuring a story that a specific celebrity will be coming to Trinity to "mentor" our athletes are reporting an untrue story. No arrangements of this type have been made. These reports are false and do not represent any plans or direction to do so in the future.

Well THANK GOD, Trinity. I think we can all agree that everyone does in fact make mistakes, but I'm pretty sure Lindsay Lohan's path to redemption shouldn't include sharing her hard-earned wisdom with teen girls quite yet.

What do you think about the idea of Lindsay Lohan mentoring underprivileged teen girls?

She hasn't "overcome adversity". She's made a string of terrible, irresponsible choices and has largely refused to accept responsibility for them. That's an insult to all the teen girls out there who have actual, REAL adversity to overcome. This strikes me as an absolutely ridiculous idea.

I think you have to overcome your problems first before you start mentoring people. Lilo is still hair deep in hers with no sign of slowing down anytime soon. So what could she mentor them on? She can't even handle her own problems, let alone tell anyone else how to deal with theirs unless dealing means lying, drinking and binging on drugs and smashing into people while drunk driving constantly.

From what I've read, her lawyer is trying to get this type of thing for her instead of jail time. Because nothing says "motivational speaker" like "I'm doing this to stay out of jail"

I cannot fucking stand this broad. She is awful. While I would never wish anyone dead, I'm honestly shocked she is still breathing. She makes horrific choices and never seems to ever really have to face any sort of consquence. My days of feeling sorry for her for having disgusting parents are over. Her choices are her own and she never owns them. From behavior, to drugs, to plastic surgery, to that horrid blond hair, to driving, that creature is losing at life and should be kept from away from young girl with an electrical fence. BAAAARRRRRFFFFFF. (steps off of soap box and stomps off)
