Joan Rivers‘ maternal side must have kicked in after she and Lindsay Lohan engaged in a Twitter fight that occurred earlier this week. Rivers appeared on The Insider last night and pleaded with Lindsay to go to rehab, even offering to pay for it herself just so Lindsay could get help, apparently remorseful about making fun of the starlet’s troubles.
Rivers said “Lindsay, I am pleading with you. You’re beautiful, you’re smart, you’re talented. Go to rehab, you’re young…I will pay for your rehab!” and then took aim at Mama and Papa Lohan, saying “If I were Lindsay Lohan’s parents I’d be taking her into rehab…That girl is going to be dead in 10 years if somebody doesn’t take care of her.”
Lindsay isn’t taking Rivers up on her offer but she did check herself into a sober living facility called Pickford Lofts today as a warmup to her jail time, which she begins serving next week. Lindsay’s new lawyer, Robert Shapiro, founded the facility and plans to ask the judge to keep her there instead of serving jail time.
