Lindsay Lohan Is Not Blowin’ Up In Balloon Business

MIAMI (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Lindsay Lohan might be a tabloid diva, but she’s not blowing up in the balloon business.

That’s according to Miami-based balloon sculptress Irina Patterson, who says Lohan is the least requested celebrity at her ballooning balloon sculpting business.

Patterson says basketball star Shaquille O’Neal and Paris Hilton are the most popular requests followed by tennis ace Maria Sharapova.

She admits many people request rubber sculptures of their boyfriends and girlfriends before they pick the redheaded starlet.

Patterson says it’s easy to recreate Lohan into a balloon sculpture because “skinny people are easier to make and they take less time.”

However, a life-size Shaq can take up to four hours and more than 50 balloons and costs around $250.

Patterson shows off her balloon twisting skills at fundraisers and birthday parties and says she’s able “to fake it till she makes it” when someone requests a celebrity she doesn’t know.
