Don't write LiLo off as look at Drew Barrymore for example. Drew's life was like LiLo's, going off the rails 'til she went into rehab. Now Drew has a successful career and is now happily married & raising her baby daughter.
Drew Barrymore was a teenager when she was off the rails and cleaned up her act by quitting drink and drugs. Lilo in her late twenties, a habitual drug/alcohol abuser, alleged kleptomaniac and pathological liar who is let off continually despite the chances she is given over and over. Big difference.
