Lindsay Lohan Is Suing E*Trade For Basing Whore-Baby On Her Life

So, okay. A new E*Trade commercial has that day-trading baby two-timing a couple of girl babies. The one who is supposed to be his girlfriend (weird?) wants to know where he was last night, and doesn't buy that he got busy "diversifying [his] portfolio." She suggests he was banging "that milk-a-holic Lindsay." Said milk-a-holic, who sort of has red hair, then pops on the screen all indignantly. And Lindsay Lohan is claiming this is supposed to be her, and wants the spots pulled and $100 million.

Lohan's lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, said the actress has the same single-name recognition as Oprah or Madonna. "Many celebrities are known by one name only, and E-Trade is using that knowledge to profit," Ovadia said. "They used the name Lindsay," Ovadia said. "They're using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn't they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody's talking about it and saying it's Lindsay Lohan." Ovadia wants an injunction to force the spot off the air, and the Lindsay camp wants every last copy of the commercial.

On the one hand, sounds like someone's being a little paranoid. On the other? Yeah, it's definitely supposed to be her. And she does need the money.
