Why don't Paris and Lindsay have drivers?
Hell, if I had their money, I'd be getting piggy-back rides around the house.

Why do these girls wanna drive themselves around? Especially when wasted?!

1. SERIOUSLY WTF.
I'm always trying to find drivers for my drunk arse. Can't these imbeciles afford at least a taxi w/ tinted windows?

5. I think that they are so impulsive...
that they do this stupid shit on whim. It's like 21 is the new 13.

They really don't think of consequences... 'cause, face it. Consequences for them are never the same as they would be for you or me.

7. I've been arrested
it's not something I ever want to do again.

How can you just get arrested in May, go into rehab, then come out and do it all over again? Maybe jail is fun when you're 18...

10. Evidently...
she's a bitch from hell.

Both times that she was arrested, it stemmed from someone walking away from her. First, it was that DJ with whom she's been romantically tied, and this time it was an assistant.

I guess she has a hard time accepting that people get fed up with her and want to sever ties with her.

She needs some serious psychological/psychiatric attention.

11. yeah she does
and I hope she gets it.

I've never seen any of her movies, but I saw her on Saturday Night Live, and I thought she was great - the first time. She was funny, cute - reminded me of a young Ann-Margaret.

Then she appeared a year later, and was an anorexic space-baby.

She has talent - I hope she's able to realize it.

12. Confession...
I kinda want to see her newest movie...

But I always wait for DVD releases of the movies that I don't want to see really badly--this one I'll wait to see.

21. I do impulsive stuff all of the time
like buying a new TiVo HD for $299, when I could really use that money for some new paint.

But, unlike them, I do think of the consequences. The bedroom stays contractor beige for another month, not a big deal in the grand scheme of things.

Driving under the influence is another thing entirely.

8. I've always wondered that myself.
Pay some guy a couple of hundred bucks to drive you around to the clubs, get as drunk as you want, and don't worry about getting behind the wheel.

To me, that's a no-brainer.

13. No shit....
If I had their kind of money, I would NEVER drive again. I'd have drivers available 24/7 to drive me to WTF-ever I wanted to go.

I hate driving.

If I had their cash I would probably never drive again.

15. Why can't we stop talking about
Edited on Tue Jul-24-07 09:03 PM by bigwillq
these two and get on with our lives?

:shrug: :eyes:

No offense to the OP but I am in the kind of mood towards these people (Paris, et al), I even called my local radio station when I was driving back to the office. The DJ kept going on and on about Lindsay and I called him and told him, there are 3,000+ troops dead in Iraq, a president that has no idea what is going on and has committed impeachable offense, rising energy prices and all everyone can talk about is that fucking ugly skank Lindsay or Paris. :mad:

somebody who is so constitutionally sensitive about such issues even click on the Lounge link?

19. To see what you had to say
You have the right to post this and I have the right to look at it and respond accordingly.

Good night. :)

22. of course you have the right
I never denied that.

But I do worry about the mental stability of those who would purposely click on a topic they know would offend them.

18. I'd like to apply
For the right salary I'm completely capable of getting highly intoxicated and driving through shrubbery, department stores, picnics, etc. while they relax in the back seat.

20. That's a cogent question - I have the answer!
Edited on Tue Jul-24-07 10:34 PM by smalll
You got it. Why in hell don't these girls have chauffeurs? Why don't they just ride in the back of limos (or stretch hummers) 24/7?

Here's the answer: it would cost a lot, even for them.

To start with, you'd have to make the man a "live in" chauffeur -- La Lohan's driver couldn't live in his own little house or apartment -- the paparazzi would just follow HIM out of his home to get to Lindsay. He would have to live in the Lohan Compound. And to be honest, I don't know how well an extra servant would fit there: I remember reading when Paris got out of jail for a few days that she would spend house arrest at her Beverly Hills "mansion" which was reported as 2,700 square feet! Think about that, you could fit more than TEN of Paris Hilton's "mansions" into John Edwards' house! Real estate is expensive out in Hollywood!

Secondly, given the late hours that celebutante clubbing entails, you would have to pay for two, not just one, on-site chauffeurs, to make sure that someone is always legally awake to take her wherever she wants to go.


The greatest expense, however, would come from the huge amounts you would have to pay your driver not to tip off the paparazzi as to La Lohan's location, and to keep mum about everything he sees: what dude did Lindsay have sex with last night in the back seat? How much coke did she ingest? Such stories would be worth tens of thousands; photos of such would be worth millions. Lindsay would have to pay through the nose for that. Christmas bonuses and all. And you would have to pay for the kind of loyalty that even the Queen doesn't get from her children's nannies. What about the discreet driver who finally moves on? Imagine the book he could write (or ghost-write, or source at least.)

Sure she should have the driver, but I blame her management, who HASN'T "enabled" her enough: she's making the millions: it's worth it to pay the big bucks to the absolutely-loyal, live-in chauffeurs she requires.

And since I'm on a Lohan-defending whimsy here, let me say this to the nay-sayers who tut-tut about her "destroying her life" and being on the road to death: take a look at that mug shot of her on Drudge. Go back and take a look at that pic of her from a couple of months ago passed out in her car the day after that earlier DWI: goddammit, she looks FAR more hot and healthy than 99.9% of the rest of us do on our best days: she's not on the verge of death, friends. And this is yet another reason we should appreciate Lindsay: just as we talk about the big three amongst Democratic candidates, Celebunation has its own big three: Paris, Britney and Lindsay. Sure, they're all hot girls. But I contend that only Lindsay is megastar-hot enough to deserve her megastar status. If Britney was a nobody like the rest of us and you saw her walking down the street, you'd think "meh" -- better than average, nothing special. If you saw unknown-Paris walking down the street, she might strike your eye, but her anorexic/chicken-leg issues, plus her less than classically beautiful face would dissuade you from delclaring undying love. Only Lindsay would strike us as superhot even as an unknown; only she lives up to the glamor hype.

She just needs a handler who can suck it up and budget for the undeniably expensive transportation personnel that Lindsay needs. They haven't been enabling her enough, is what I say!

24. Just one thing...
Neither Paris, Britney and Lindsay are all that hot. If Lindsay is "megastar" hot, I have some friends who should be worshiped as goddesses.
