Lindsay, you’ve got to kidding! An airport shopping spree cost you a trip to the Vienna Opera Ball!
Lindsay Lohan was supposed to accompany Austrian billionaire Richard Lugner, 77, to the annual Vienna Opera Ball (he has taken a big-name celeb every year, including Pamela Anderson, Paris Hilton and Sophia Loren) but it turns out Lindsay’s shopping addiction has cut the party short, E! Online reports. A recent shopping spree maxed out her credit card, and she couldn’t afford the $22,000 fee the airline was charging her for holding the flight.
Earlier this month, Richard blabbed to the media about Lindsay’s crazy demands for the event: All alcohol was to be kept out of Lindsay’s site, and she even requested that the date of the ball be moved to accomodate her. Sorry, Lindsay, but the ball has happened the Thursday before Ash Wednesday every year since 1936.
Lindsay, we just don’t get it. You were going to be paid $150,000 for this event — don’t you think you should have taken it a little more seriously? You may be gossip gold, but your days as a Hollywood starlet are fading (if not completely extinguished.) It’s time to straighten up and take some responsibility.
In your absence, Richard will be taking Dieter Bohlen, a big-time male celebrity in Germany. You hear that, Lindsay? You were essentially replaced with a poor-man’s David Hasselhoff. Happy now?
