MTV: Just about a month after Lindsay Lohan returned from India, where she was shooting a documentary for the BBC channel about the illegal trafficking of women and children, a trailer for it has appeared online. In it, the actress meets with locals to investigate the origins of human trafficking in the country that she shot during a week long trip to the country in December.
“The whole situation is heartbreaking because the parents aren’t necessarily in the wrong, the children are obviously not in the wrong,” she says in the video. “The traffickers are the ones in the wrong because they know what they’re doing and anyone who says they don’t know, I mean come on.”
Footage shows Lindsay sitting with a woman, presumably a trafficker based on the conversation, and asks her about the abuse. “Didn’t you hear from other traffickers that children were abused and some maybe some girls if they were attractive raped and prostituted and subjected to such horrible things?” she asks.
The woman responded with: “She’s saying at that time there was not so many of these such cases, but it’s now there are these cases of sexual abuse or violence and everything.”
There is no release date yet for the documentary, but her Lindsay’s mom, Dina, told People: “It was an amazing, life-changing experience for her. I’m so proud of Lindsay, that under all the scrutiny the tabloids put her under, she is a very strong, caring, talented girl who ignores all the negative, and continues to move forward in a positive direction. I am so proud of her.”
US Weekly: Sounds like Lindsay Lohanâs New Year has gotten off on the wrong foot.
While celebrating 2010 on the island of St. Barthâs, the 23 year-old star discovered that she was ripped off by her longtime best friend and sidekick Patrick âPootieâ Aufdenkamp.
A friend close to Lohan tells UsMagazine.com, âPatrick stole Lindsayâs sketches for her new 6126 clothing line.â WWD reported Dec. 30 that Lohanâs 6126 leggings line would be expanded to become a full clothing collection for fall 2010; her role as artistic advisor for fashion house Emanuel Ungaro, despite a rocky start, is also ongoing.
Lohan tells UsMagazine.com that Aufdenkamp has been her âbest friendâ since she was 16. He has frequently been photographed with the actress, and was present at many meetings related to her new fashion line.
âHe is now running off trying to do his own line,â a Lohan pal says incredulously, âAnd telling people heâs going to fashion market week in NYC on February 18 to debut his line.â
Adds the Lohan source, âItâs horrible. He was her best friend. He has always used her, and sheâs been warned to never trust him. Lindsay is a good friend and likes to see the good in people. She didnât want to believe how bad Patrickâs energy was, and how false his friendship has always been with her.â
Lohan herself spoke to UsMagazine.com exclusively about the sad incident. âI shouldâve known better,â she said, noting that the friendship with âPootieâ has ended. âBut new year for me and a new beginning! Health, happiness, success and love!â
As you celebrate Christmas, may you experience true love and hapiness. Christmas is the time to give and to share. Jesus is the reason for the season and he is the epitome of true love.
Merry Christmas from LindsayDaily.com staff!

IMDB: Lindsay Lohan jetted from Los Angeles to India on Monday night to shoot a hard-hitting new documentary about sex trafficking.
The troubled actress will spend a week in various areas of India shooting a low-key BBC investigation about the trafficking of women and children in the country.
A source tells Life & Style magazine, âLindsay is trying to better herself and get away from her party-girl image. She wants to be taken more seriously.â

People: Lindsay Lohan and John Mayer were both hanging out with Samantha Ronson, who was deejaying at New York nightspot Butter.
Mayer arrived first with his male posse in tow, and the singer scoped out the scene and stopped to flirt with female revelers.
He also greeted Ronson at his table, though she soon headed over to the deejay booth. Then Lohan arrived and started chatting up Mayer.
While Lohan was definitely there to see Ronson, according to an onlooker the two didnât really interact much, though they were at the same table all night. âYou could tell they were there together and both talking to John Mayer,â the onlooker says. âThey all stayed at the same time talking until past 3 a.m.”
SAWFNEWS: Lindsay Lohanâs father has been accused of hunting out strippers who look like his famous daughter.
Despite Michael Lohanâs denials, Elliot Osher, a former owner of New Yorkâs most famous strip club Scores, insists the troubled dad made the bizarre request when he visited.
The weird request, which Osher did not give a date for, is part of a book he plans to write about many of the celeb visitors to the sexy hot spot.
âLindsay Lohanâs father once sat down and described the kind of dancer he was looking for,â Osher insisted.
âWe sent some girls over. Funny, they all seemed to look like Lindsay.
âWe ended up having to show him to the door.â
Michael Lohan admits getting into an âaltercationâ at Scores, but insisted: âNo girls danced for me.
âThe last thing Iâd want to see is a girl who looked like Lindsay. I donât even look at the magazines where sheâs done some risque photos.â
But Osher insisted: âMaybe he just doesnât remember.
Osher worked at Scores for 18 years, starting out as a bouncer.
Among the anecdotes in his planned book he claims Madonna stiffed the staff, Bill Gates left a $3,500 tip, Bernie Madoff âwanted a private roomâ and Russell Crowe âalmost got in a fight with an Irish waiterâ.
Fox News: Lindsay Lohan might want to think about getting a part time job that actually pays.
Sources tell Fox411 that while the starlet poured her time and effort into her work with fashion house Emmanuel Ungaro for Paris Fashion Week, Lohan, 23, has not been paid for her work.
âUngaro is not paying her at all to be a consultant for them,â a source close to Lohan told 411. âHer team is working to get Lindsay some form of payment from the fashion house, but right now they will only give her free clothes.â
And while the line was universally slammed by critics, the legendary fashion house seems to have made a savvy business decision in bringing Lohan on board for free.
âThe deal is perfect for them â they have nothing to lose, even though the clothes were not a big hit during Paris fashion week. Lindsay even paid for her flight and hotel in Paris,â the source said.
But to add insult to injury, friends also say that Lohan recently learned that Casablanca records has decided to terminate its professional relationship with her.
âCasablanca has suspended all further recording sessions of her album and put their working relationship with her on hold. Lindsay was committed to making music and has been working on it for 16 months. She is going to go what she can to keep her music career going.â
But Lohanâs troubles could become far worse if she doesnât find paying work soon, especially with her extravagant lifestyle taking all of her money and casting directors failing to take her seriously. Even worse, Lohan doesnât have trustworthy people in her corner and feels that even her own mother Dina is exploiting her.
âLindsay is not speaking to her mom and Dina is telling people Lindsay is so busy they donât have time to talk. Their problems got worse 6 months ago when she begged her mother not to do something with the Shoe Han idea. She was embarrassed and tried to convince Dina that would only hurt her while she tried to make a comeback. Her career is at a stop and she does not have enough money coming in [to support herself.
LATimes.com: A Beverly Hills judge today extended Lindsay Lohan’s probation for a year in connection with a 2007 drunk-driving case.
The judge made the decision to extend probation after learning that Lohan had not completed required treatment programs because she was filming a movie out of state. Lohan’s attorney said the filming is done and that she can finish the programs.
The court appearance stems from a 2007 incident in which she crashed her car on Sunset Boulevard in Beverly Hills and was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.
She eventually agreed to a plea bargain that called for probation, time in a treatment program and community service.

FOX News: In more Brit-related news, many have been questioning why on earth sheâs been hanging out with not-so-reformed rehabber Lindsay Lohan in recent times, but it may not entirely be her fault.
An insider says Britâs manager Larry Rudolph is now quietly working with Lindsay Lohan too, which is why the two troubled Tinseltowners have been spotted at the same place at the same time a lot lately. The source says Rudolph is helping Lohan with a potential reality show that will enscapulate her trials and tribulations as she gets “back on her feet” and actually becomes a working actress again.
A rep for Lohan did not respond for comment.
But speaking of Lohan getting back on the straight and narrow, it sounds like that is a dream still far from the realm of reality. Lilo was spotted in a NYC restaurant late night last Thursday looking like a hot mess, literally.
“She looked filthy and disgusting, barely recognizable,” said an eyewitness.
The 22-year-old later returned to her hood in Los Angeles in the wee hours of Sunday to discover her home had again been broken into and several pieces of valuable jewelry as well as watches had been stolen, marking her second home burglary in three months.
“She is upset and feels violated,” a Lohan pal said.
Lindsay Lohan pulled a Robert Pattinson in New York yesterday. She was nearly run down in Manhattan traffic!
In her case, she was almost hit by a bicyclist as she attempted to maneuver around the paparazzi.
In Robâs close encounter with New York City traffic, he was brushed by a cab as he was trying to flee a horde of pursuing fans. Fortunately, both were unhurt.Lohan was out and about shopping in the afternoon and was spotted later that evening having dinner.
All and all, pop culture anthropologists gleaned a mother lode of new observations. That should keep speculation cooking about the 23-year-old actress, at least until her next blow up with on-gain, off-again girlfriend Samantha Ronson.
Lohan looked a little rattled by the close brush with traffic disaster, but it didnât sway her from dodging into high-end boutique INA, to shop with abandon while the paparazzi idled outside.
When she pulled out plastic to pay the bill on a pile of new clothes, observers immediately took notice. Hey, maybe she really isnât hurting for money.
Much has been made of rumors that Lindsay is desperate for work after being turned down for a teen-aged film role. Producers think she is âtoo jadedâ for the part. The movie, based on the novel âUndiscovered Gyrl,â is about a teen blogger, who over-reveals about her sexual coming-of-age.
The bookâs author Allison Burnett told OK magazine she passed on the actress because of Lindsayâs troubled image. How about because sheâs just too old for the role?
Then there were the lips. Is Lindsay plumping? One blogger swore her lips were fatter. Was it just the lighting, or has she been seeing a plastic surgeon in search of fake lips to go with her fake tan?
Lindsay was also spied eating a piece of pizza! Who says sheâs anorexic? Although, some reports say she still looks ghastly thin.
Which could be a good thing: New York Fashion Week is on the horizon and Lindsay may just be trying to look the part like last year.
And her reed-thin body definitely helped her side-step that bicycle.
Access Hollywood: Lindsay Lohan stepped out for dinner with on-again/off-again girlfriend Samantha Ronson at Dan Tanaâs restaurant in Los Angeles on Thursday night, but according to eyewitnesses, it wasnât a romantic gathering.
âShe was visibly pretty upset, just wiping her tears a lot,â an onlooker told Access Hollywood of Lindsayâs behavior.
The two women arrived at the restaurant a little after 10 PM and fellow diners in the packed eatery saw the newly blonde actress wiping back her tears not long after the couple sat down.
While Lindsay was tearful, Samantha reportedly paid little attention to the starlet.
âSam would rarely look up,â the witness said. âShe just kept texting.â
At one point, Lindsay attempted to get Samanthaâs attention.
âShe hit her hands against the table and yelled, âWhat!â really loud,â the source said.
Despite the emotional scene, Lindsay caught attention for another reason too.
âShe looked really beautiful,â the witness added.
All News Web: Pop singer Pink, not one to shy away from controversy has walked into another storm by claiming that Christina Aguilera eyes out women and told her once herself that she wouldnât mind a fling with troubled celebrity Lindsay Lohan.

LIndsay Lohan has shrugged off the remark but some say has left the door open: âShe knows where I Iiveâ she is reported to have âjokedâ.
Friends of Christina Aguilera have laughed off the comment: âIt is absurd, the very heterosexual Christina is involved in a relationship with a man and is currently concentrating on being a mother: I couldnât think of anything less of interest to herâ One friend noted.
