Lindsay Lohan needs money, is suing

Lindsay Lohan was most recently fired from her fake position as artistic director at Ungaro. Suffice to say, she needs money. What better way to get it than from a frivolous lawsuit?

Lindsay is suing E-Trade for that talking baby commercial that debuted during the Super Bowl which features a boyfriend stealing milkaholic baby named Lindsay. She’s asking for $100 million for pain and suffering.

The commercial depicts a baby apologizing to his baby girlfriend about not calling the night before. The girlfriend asks, “and that milkaholic Lindsay wasn’t over?” Then baby Lindsay pops into frame to say, “Milk-a-what?”

Lohan’s lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, alleges Lindsay has single-name recognition like Oprah or Madonna and that E-trade is profiting off a parody of her life. “They used the name Lindsay,” Ovadia said. “They’re using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn’t they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody’s talking about it and saying it’s Lindsay Lohan.” Ovadia wants an injunction to stop the spots from running.

The people who produced the ad said they “just used a popular baby name that happened to be the name of someone on the account team.”

Ovadia argues that E-Trade violated Lindsay’s rights and used her “name and characterization” in business without paying or getting approval.

Bwahaha. Lindsay must be real hard-up for cash and high if she thinks she has single-name recognition. This is the dumbest lawsuit ever. You could open up a book of baby names and Lindsay would be the first thing you’d see. Lindsay was the 380th most popular baby name in 2008 according to the Social Security Administration. That may seem low, but that doesn’t even factor in alternate spellings like Lindsey or Lindsi or however the hell people spell it to be unique.

Only Lindsay would try something as stupid as this. When she loses, she’ll probably find a drunk chick named Lindsay stumbling out of a club at 4 AM high on coke and having just choked down a penis in a bathroom stall and slap her with a lawsuit alleging she’s parodying her life without paying royalties.

Legally, I think, Lindsey (with an ‘e’) is typically the girls name spelling and Lindsay (with an ‘a’) is the boy’s. I’m sure that the Lindsey in the E*Trade advert was intended to poke fun, but Lohan needs to get a life. And no, she doesn’t have single name recognition – perhaps in her own mind – but no where else. Get over yourself, Lindsay.

HAHAHAHAHA The lawsuit is as baseless as her career. BUT, we all know what can happen in that cesspool called the Los Angeles County Courthouse. Smithsonian wouldn’t take it…tie OJ’s suit over Lady Justice’s eyes at the LACC. The tools in the LA jury pool will love to give Bimbo Lohan and her parasite attorneys plenty of money they don’t deserve.
