These are the moments they talk about 25 minutes into any decent episode of True Hollywood Story. You know the ones I’m talking about. The catalyst, the one thing that eventually leads to a flurry of bad happenings; usually, it’s some form a horrific personal tragedy. I’m sure all other things that have happened to the Lohan family have been mere life hiccups compared to the indefinite revoking of Lindsay and Ali’s Carvel Ice Cream Black Card, which awarded them free frozen treat for 75 years.
In 20 years, when I’m watching the dynasty’s THS reboot (yes, Lindsay’s already had one) while bed-ridden on a Saturday afternoon, they’ll talk about how Lindsay was so crushed by the development — caused by her mom’s abuse of the card (so said the ice cream company in their press release) — she refused to make I Know Who Killed Me II and Ali refused to… do whatever she does; thus, beginning the family’s decent all kinds of turmoil.
The release from the company included this stinger:
“This is an unfortunate situation where certain people feel entitled to use a celebrity’s name for their own purposes.”
For the record, I’m with Carvel on this one, but I hope they realize they shouldn’t hand those out to just anyone. I’ll take mine now, please.
