Lindsay Lohan has gone off the rails hardcore in recent months, even by her standards, but this fact is apparently not lost on her, according to a new TMZ report.
The 26-year-old actress legitimately thought she had turned over a new leaf this past March after she completed the terms of her sentence for stealing jewelry.
Somewhere along the line, though, the troubled star lost her way again, and is said to be inconsolable, repeatedly calling her lawyer Shawn Holley in tears.
In classic Lindsay fashion, she knows her life is out of control, but she's blaming it on others, saying she has again hooked up with a bad group of people.
She says "opportunists" have tried to provoke and take advantage of her, and is adamant that she does NOT have a problem with alcohol or drug abuse.
One could refute that all day and all night, but to her credit, Lindsay Lohan does say she should seek professional counseling and actually stick to it this time.
Not coincidentally, counseling is seen as the only possible way she can avoid jail time for her recent probation violation and bevy of new criminal charges.
Genuinely or not, Lindsay is telling friends her big problem is impulse control - not thinking before she acts - and thinks regular counseling would help with that.
That and she's surrounded by enablers. You buying it? A judge will hear her out one last time January 15, when she faces up to eight months in jail.
What do you think: Throw Lindsay Lohan in jail?
