Celebrities take note – if you want to get attention from the media, don’t plan anything on a Friday.
For the past two Fridays, Lindsay Lohan has managed to put herself right in the center of a media storm (well, even more so than usual).
Last Friday, she slammed her Porsche into a dump truck on the PCH, sparking endless speculation and conflicting reports as to who was actually behind the wheel/ who was at fault in the accident/ was there alcohol involved/ pink bag what?
And the Friday after that (today), paramedics were called to the Ritz Carlton hotel in Marina del Rey because Lindsay was napping very, very deeply.

Friday October 16 2009 – A judge extends Lindsay’s probation by a year and warns her she will face jail time if she skips her alcohol counseling meetings.
Friday September 17 2010 – This is the day Lindsay tweeted she failed another drug test: “Regrettably I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked I am prepared to appear before Judge Fox next week as a result.”
Friday September 24 2010 – Lindsay appears in court, has her probation revoked, is cuffed and taken into custody.
Friday April 22 2011 – Lindsay spends five hours in custody after being sentenced to 120 days in jail for violating her probation and theft. She is ordered to do 480 hours of community service.
Friday May 6 2011 – Lindsay starts community service at the Downtown Women’s Center in LA.
Honestly Lindsay, just stay home next Friday! It’s for the best.
