Lindsay Lohan, you have a powerful ally rooting for you: Jill Zarin, star of Real Housewives of New York ,and author with her mom and sister of Secrets of a Jewish Mother!
Jill Zarin, who’s a mom herself to 17-year-old Allyson, is adamant that Lindsay Lohan should NOT have been jailed by Judge Elden Fox until her Oct. 22, parole violation hearing.
“You don’t NOT give bail to a drug addict. Lindsay didn’t hurt anyone else — she didn’t rob a bank or break into someone’s house — she didn’t hurt anyone but herself,” Jill pointed out exclusively to HollywoodLife.com. “I feel bad for Lindsay — she’s a drug addict, I’ve known drug addicts and all they can think about is their drugs.”
Jill believes Lindsay should focus on medical help, rather than staring at a cell wall.
“Lindsay needs a solid year in rehab to finally overcome her addiction. You need 12 months to break ties with your former friends and associates,” she said. “The best thing to happen to Lindsay is if a movie studio would tell her to go away for a year, get sober and promise her a terrific role, when she came back.”
Jill also suggested that Lindsay may have a genetic pre-disposition to drug addiction, since her father, Michael Lohan, had the same addiction. Plus, she hasn’t had the benefit of two parents working toegther to support her.
“Some parents can help and interfere better than others,” Jill explained. “If her parents weren’t divorced, weren’t fighting, and a united front, they could have had more influence.”
The way Jill sees it, Lindsay is suffering from a deadly disease and she deserves treatment…NOT jail time!
