The Word: More bad life choices for Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan

Well, if this doesn’t spell the end for Lindsay Lohan, I don’t know what does: Courtney Love, a woman once so wasted she was photographed having a stranger suck her bare nipple at a Wendy’s, is apparently Lindsay Lohan’s new sobriety coach.

Yes, in the new issue of Details, Love says she’s taken on the role “because nobody else will.”

Love says she is using her past to show Lohan that she is making a mistake by using drugs. “I went up to Lindsay’s room one time and there was a show on called ‘101 Celebrity Oops’ and I am like, every other one. You know — boobs out, legs everywhere, throwing s— at Madonna, you know, whatever,” Kurt Cobain’s widow told the magazine. “I’m like, ‘Lindsay, look! Drugs are bad!’”

Love, whose daughter recently filed a restraining order against her, claims she’s been clean since 2005.

Does anyone need to know how bad of an idea this is? Having Courtney Love as your sobriety coach makes about as much sense has having Chris Farley as your weight-loss guru.

A ‘neurotic’ Aniston can’t win

Oh, hey: In Touch Weekly is reporting that Jennifer Aniston, who makes her money by being ultra thin and beautiful, is concerned about gaining weight and not exercising enough. You don’t say!

Since the actress quit smoking in hopes of getting pregnant, she  “complains nonstop about how fat she is,” a source tells In Touch, which makes new beau Justin Theroux annoyed. “Justin really can’t believe how vain Jennifer is. He will want to go to a restaurant and Jen will say that the food’s too fattening or that she can’t stay up late because she’s getting up at 6 a.m. to go to a workout.” They continue: “It’s hard [for him] to deal with her neurotic side.”

I’d be neurotic too if the entire tabloid press were on high alert for photos of me looking a little bit chunkers so they can scream that I’m pregnant. Justin, let that lady wake up at 6 a.m. to go work out! She’s bringing home the bacon with those gams.
