Lindsay Lohan is off serving yet another sentence in a drug rehabilitation center while her parents continue to bicker about which party is really responsible for LiLo’s fall from grace. At least one Living Lohan alum appears to be doing alright at the moment — Ali Lohan. Not only is Lindsay’s sis staying out trouble, she’s thriving in the modeling world! How is that possible?
With a complete train wreck of a family, you’d expect that poor Ali Lohan would be headed down the same road as her sister. But instead of sitting in rehab for the millionth time, Ali is busy maintaining a surprisingly successful career as a model.
Ali Lohan says she owes her success to Lindsay — and not for the reason you might expect. Yes, Lindsay has been supportive of Ali’s modeling efforts, but what has been far more instructive is seeing the troubled celebrity publicly fall apart time after time. Having witnessed the awful side effects that can accompany fame, Ali wants to keep any notoriety she gains in check while using that power to accomplish something worthwhile. In an interview with WWD, the younger Lohan sister explained, “I want to do good things with my fame, or whatever it is. I want to help and do charity work.”
Of course, achieving such a positive image can be difficult when you’re living under the shadow of your sister. But Ali believes it is possible to be known for her own talents, as opposed to simply being a member of a famous family. “I would like to be known as my own person. I don’t need to ride on any coattails.”
Do you think Ali Lohan will be able to break her family’s current streak of
bad decisions bad luck? Leave a comment and let us know!
