Saving Lindsay Lohan

This past week saw former child star turned beleaguered young adult Lindsay Lohan get sentenced to 90 days in jail for violating the terms of her probation.
 
This "train wreck," in which one embarassing moment or disaster has been followed by another, has been unfolding for years. In our opinion, what is remarkable is the apparent absence in Ms. Lohan's life (at least, recently -- as I perceive her former BFF Samantha Ronson to have been perhaps the sole beacon of maturity in her life) of anyone who actually cares about her.  It seems that her entourage have been her enablers.  These hangers-on have not been her protectors, but her parasites.
 
Lindsay Lohan may not need substance rehab.  She does need friend rehab.  This means she needs to evaluate, coldly and professionally, everyone around her -- literally, everyone, including her family.  She needs to determine who is a positive influence, and who is a negative influence.  Most of all, she needs to determine which of these hangers-on will be "there" for her if, in a hypothetical situation, she were to awaken one day without her looks, fame or money (all of which appear to be rapidly diminishing).  Then she has to cut bait.
 
If this means she will have no friends in the world after that process, she would be better off than she is right now.
 
What Lindsay Lohan needs is people around her who care about her and will give her candid, tough advice on a personal level.  Then, she needs to find the same type of people to handle and advise her professionally and legally.
