Here we go again.
Arrested for slapping someone? Please.
Everyone knows Lohan’s real crime this week is her performance as Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime movie ‘Liz and Dick.’ Really, her acting — and the entire film — are shockingly bad.
Before you roll your eyes at the starlet’s latest brush with the law, consider this:
The Lohan nonsense is actually doing everyone a big favor.
Lindsay Lohan pays lawyers big bucks to constantly review her personal records. When’s the last time you looked at your own?
There are two important files you can track down right at your desk. No legal counsel necessary.
1. Driving history
2. Credit report
No, you probably never hit a person while behind the wheel (like Lindsay allegedly did in September), but we all have a few marks on our record. A couple speeding tickets, maybe expired tags or even unpaid parking violations.
Each state differs, but the DMV should allow you to go online and request your driving or vehicle record. Note: there may be a fee.
Here are the Web sites for a few states: Virginia, Maryland, New York, Florida, New Jersey and California. If I left you out, just google your state and then ‘DMV driving record.’ That should get you to the right place.
An added reason to check your driving history at least once: what if police mistakenly put someone else’s infractions on your record? It’s happened before.
Well, you get the idea. The years have taken their toll on the actress’ credit.
What’s up with yours? Have you looked at it lately?
The best way to check: obtain separate reports from all three credit agencies (Equifax, Experian and Transunion). It’s a little more effort than freecreditscore.com, but it will ensure your scores are accurate because they’re coming straight from the source.
See? An entire article on Lindsay Lohan that didn’t make you want to throw up.
That’s no easy task.
Did you see ‘Liz and Dick’ and actually sit through the entire thing? Or did you turn it off after 15 minutes?
