Lindsay Lohan, Washed Up at 21?

I know what you're thinking: What is Lindsay Lohan up to these days?

Since emerging from three months of treatment at Utah's Cirque Lodge rehab center in October, La Lohan -- formerly a stalwart of the Morning Mix -- has been relatively quiet. She's hardly reached Melissa Joan Hart status yet , but with Perez Hilton registering more name recognition than LL, she's dancing dangerously close to full-blown yesterday's news territory.

We last checked in with Lohan over the holidays when the one-time singer/actress and current [TBD] made a minor ripple by sipping champagne and kissing her way around Capri by way of welcoming the new year. But when stacked up against the hospitalization of Britney Spears and, like, the return of late night TV, LL's latest exploits just seemed dull somehow.

This week, the New York Daily News published sightings of Lohan out partying with Paris Hilton ex Stavros Niarchos and reality show star Brody Jenner and "going berserk" on paps trying to snap pictures of her. Said one unnamed "friend" to the Daily News, "Lindsay is learning how to work through her addictions and, once in a while, she chooses to have a cocktail." Meanwhile, recent Lohan roommate and rumored "sugar mama" Courtenay Semel apparently moved out, leaving LL to muddle through her reportedly dire financial straits alone.

Yes, but aside from clubbing and shopping, does Lohan have anything going on?

Though the goal of rehab and recovery will ideally keep a troubled starlet out of the spotlight, Lohan hasn't exactly been making headlines professionally, either. Her last film, "I Know Who Killed Me," received nine Razzie nominations.

A quick trip over to reveals that LL has two projects listed as "in production." The first -- "Poor Things," co-starring Shirley MacLaine -- was rumored to have been scuttled after Lohan's second DUI arrest in July, but seems to be back on the table. The second -- "Dare to Love Me" -- had Lohan learning to tango last fall in preparation for her role as the love interest of a dancer. But earlier this month, the film's producer said production had been delayed indefinitely. Another project rumored to be in development is tentatively titled "Hippy," the story of "a cross-country road trip for a group of friends takes a turn for the worse when one of them drops acid." Ooh, let's guess which one!
