So apparently David Letterman announced that Lindsay Lohan was going to be on his show the other night after an “acquaintance” of Lindsay called the show trying to book her. It turns out, Lindsay never had any intention of going on the show, Letterman got pissed off, and Michael Lohan claimed that he was trying to get his daughter on the show until her handlers stepped in.
“Lindsay Lohan will not be delivering a Top Ten list on Thursday’s LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN, as had been previously announced. We made a mistake. Someone purporting to be a friend of Lindsay’s reached out to the show yesterday, allegedly on her behalf, and booked her to appear. Clearly, this person was not authorized to make commitments on her behalf. We wish Lindsay well, and look forward to having her on the show in the future.” SOURCE
I’m torn on this one: On one hand, Michael would lie to Letterman to get his daughter on the show. On the other hand, he’d also tell the press that LiLo was really four babies in a trench coat if he thought it would get him on the front page of TMZ. “What? Oh, yeah, just a bunch of babies in a trench coat. They grow up so fast, don’t they. *Unzips fly* All right, Levin, get to work.”
