PREACH IT! Introducing the Lindsay Lohan-Michael Lohan fallout pool!

Congratulations to Lindsay Lohan and her dad Michael: The two have reconciled after years of estrangement. It couldn’t have been easy for Lindsay to agree to see her dad, given her father’s fondness for parading in front of the press, moaning about his daughter’s waywardness.

Still, signs of a rapprochement have been in the air for a while. A few weeks before the two reunited in Rancho Mirage at the Betty Ford Center -- where Lohan is cooped up in rehab -- Michael issued a supposedly final note to the media. We won’t subject you to it here, but the gist was that Michael would no longer, you know, be parading in front of the press moaning about his daughter’s waywardness.

Lindsay, meanwhile, has allowed the thaw in relations as a part of her general recovery.

We sincerely hope that the recovery part sticks. But we can’t help but wonder how long the father-daughter reunion will last, given that Michael is as addicted to media attention as Lindsay is to -- well, we’ll leave that detail to her counselors.


So how long do you think the thaw will last? Let us know in the comments below. We’ll call it a pool. And the winner -- if there is one -- will get a shout out from the Ministry.
