Michael Lohan Is To Blame For Lindsay Lohan Letterman Fiasco


Yesterday the big news in the afternoon was that Lindsay was going to be on Letterman tomorrow night doing a Top Ten list. The list would have presumably made fun of her recent bouts with the law. It would have been good for her and to put her into a more positive light. Everyone loves self deprecating humor. Well, today CBS had to retract their earlier announcement because Lindsay pulled out. Well, kind of pulled out She says she never agreed to do it. Letterman;s people said they had spoken with someone close to Lindsay about the booking but would not reveal who it was.

Turns out it was Michael Lohan. He told the world it was his idea and that he coordinated between Letterman and Lindsay and even went so far as to arrange with Lindsay transportation to a studio in LA where she would have performed the bit.

Everything was going great until Lindsay's people found out about it and shut it down. Why would they shut it down? It isn't like Lindsay is making national guest appearances on any other shows. Idiots.

Maybe Letterman's crack sucks.

Bizarre

I think the Lindsay's whole "team" is as big a mess as she is.

Cecilia00 said...

She should have done it.

She desperately needs to be seen in a positive light. She needs media exposure that is not her latest court or addiction drama.

Other than legal issues on what they would've had her say, which her attorney could have handled efficiently, I don't see the problem.

Big mistake.

She already has trouble getting gigs.This is yet another reason for people to say "She's unreliable, don't book her."

timebob said...

Enty as a lawyer you should know that anything she does publicly can be used against her in court.

Her people were right to shut it down. It could have a negative effect if it goes to a jury trial and can be put in a light that she is again thumbing her nose at the law.

RocketQueen said...

Well all I know is that it isn't Lindsay's fault. It's never her fault.

nunaurbiz said...

Yes, I'm in agreement that Loco-Lo's lawyers shot this down. That and the fact she probably can't leave the state until the "alleged" jewelry theft is settled.

Mooshki said...

Sorry, I'm Team Lindsay on this one. If she let Michael manipulate her into this, he'd just continue to try to take further advantage of her. If you take the good, you have to take the bad, and she needs him to stay the hell out of her life. (If only she would do the same with her witch mother.)

MCH said...

@Mooshki - Now I'm singing the Facts of Life theme song. :)

Yeah, she probably should have done it but if the bit contradicted with her statement of innocence, I'm sure her lawyer probably advised against it. Or maybe she thought it would make her seem like she's not taking the charges seriously? (Which I'm sure she isn't).

I would have stayed up late to see that.

ITA, timebomb.

Mango said...

Who are "Lindsay's people"? Sounds cryptic and ominous. Are they like the Illuminati-lite?

bluebonnetmom said...

She needs to lay low and keep her mouth shut until this latest case is settled.

JW said...

I'm with Lindsay on this one. Michael is not her manager - where does he get off booking her for something without her consent? What's next - the newest Piggly Wiggly opening?
I feel sorry for Lindsay, she is about as screwed up as a person can get and her parents are reason number one. I hope to h*ll that girl is able to get her life straightened out eventually.

Ms.Leigh said...

I never thought I'd see the day I'd say something like this (marks calendar), but I agree with Lindsay on this one.

We can only speculate that this would have been taking positively by the public for her when most people already can't stand her. But in reality it would have pissed the judge off. As it stands now, she has a decent change of fighting these charges and I don't blame her for not wanting to compromise that.

Has anyone else seen this masterpiece: http://blindgossip.com/?p=26088

Sandy, Sandy, Sandy.

Mooshki said...

LOL, MCH.

RQ, that is really depressing. :( A lot of people said there was no way she didn't know what was going on with him, but I didn't want to believe it.

MCH said...

@Bitter Queen - I remember hearing rumors about the racist sex wear & poop sex too. I REALLY hope that blind is false.

k8schroen said...

Considering her father (and mother) take every advantage humanly possible, I hate to say I agree with Lindsay on this one. He has no right to speak on her behalf.

RocketQueen said...

Careful Bitter Queen - there are a few people on CDaN that will cut a bitch for suggesting we pay any attention to BlindGossip blinds ;) I'm not one of them though, and it's pretty pretty awful if it's true.

Bitter Queen said...

@ Rocket Queen: And there are some here who believe Sandy is Mother Teresa, so I get their ire, too! I can take it, though.

RocketQueen said...

Ha! True enough!

Lady Chatterly said...

Bitter Queen, I can't attest to how accurate BlindGossip is, but I have always thought Sandra Bullock what Jesse was all about.

Lady Chatterly said...

...knew what jesse was all about.

Mooshki said...

I know Blind Gossip isn't always accurate, but we are talking about "gossip" here. By definition, it shouldn't be taken as gospel, whether it be BG, Lainey, or even Enty. I know Enty tries to get as much confirmation as he can for his blinds, but unless there's video, or multiple witnesses, how can you ever be 100% sure what really happened?

rebellious, contrary and nice said...

That's interesting BG, considering I am in the same camp. How in the name of all that's holy, you don't know about JJ having Nazi gear in his work office? SMH. Something in the milk just ain't clean.

selenakyle said...

..gives a FUCK ????????????

Sorry, I am beYOND being over the LiLo shit.

Done. Over it.

(but I love CDAN more and more every day, Enty! No hard feelings! :) :) :)

Mango said...

Re the Sandy OT blind: Why why WHY does anyone with anything to lose make a sex tape? And a sex tape with scat??

Sandy seems smarter than that but if she was in love, maybe she thought the tape would never be made public. But if she was soooo in love, why wouldn't see forgive him, do the united front thing and move on? If she knew full well already what a a fucking douche Jesse was I don't get why she left him. The public has a short memory and would probably have bought a "We've made mistakes but we love each other and are working on our marriage" line of bullshit.

Paisley said...

@Mango

I think she left to keep the baby. I don't believe the adoption was finalized when this was going on. If I was the birth mother, the attorney for the birth mother or the adoptive agency, I'd be pretty freaked out to have Jesse anywhere near that baby.

Ellyn said...

I agree with Lindsay on this one. If she made fun of herself on Letterman, it would have seemed like she wasn't taking these theft charges or her legal situation seriously.

One this is all resolved, she can start making guest appearences again.

KLM said...

What are you guys talking about??? I'm totally confused but I want to know!!!

Janice-Marie: Smith said...

They shut it down because ML is not her manager! She would be an idiot to do it, and since she didn't ... she's smarter than then most people think!

Mango said...

@ KLM - are you referring to the LiLo story or the Sandra Bullock OT? If the latter, see the first post Bitter Queen made ^^^

Amanda said...

OT but does anyone know what Hasselhoff is filming? He's in my town & was at the mall selling girl scout cookies.

sussique said...

Remember when she did the Funny or Die video? That was genius. She should do the top ten. If this true that Michael Lohan did this? Too weird.

I think it's one thing to do whatever in the privacy of your own bedroom with your significant other BUT it's another thing to find out he does this regularly with any whore and hooker he can find. It doesn't surprise me that she wouldn't know. Liars and manipulators are very good at what they do. Don't think it can't happen to you. Trust no one!
