When life hands you lemons, make lemonade. Or, if you’re the jewelry store that Lindsay Lohan stole from, squeeze every last drop of publicity you can from it. TMZ reports,
A rep for the Kamofie and Co. jewelry store announced, “We have decided to sell the diamond necklace through auction, and give the proceeds to charity.”
As for the specific charity — the rep states, “We invite the public to make suggestions as to the most appropriate charity to receive the benefit of the sale’s proceeds.”
According to the rep, the auction will not take place until AFTER the criminal case is resolved “by plea bargain, or trial or some other means.”
The necklace is currently being held as evidence by the L.A. County District Attorney.
I think the money should go back to the Lohan family. They’ve been through so much already. They all really need a change of scenery to give them a fresh start, to draw them together as a family. I suggest that the money be used to buy them one-way tickets to Libya. By way of the Maersk Alabama. They say that adversity can really draw people together.
