Lindsay Lohan And Jay Leno

Jay Leno might get a ratings boost after Lindsay Lohan bailed on Barbara Walters for an interview with Jay, but all it really shows is that Jay will let you talk about anything you want and is the television version of Kneepads. What he should do if he really wants to show that he has some balls is ask Lindsay tough question after tough question for the entire time she stays on the show. Sure, she will be upset after it is over, but what kind of power does Lindsay Lohan have? Sure, if you are a peasant in some Middle Eastern country she can have one of her boyfriends throw them in prison, but they are not in Burbank. Jay can make it very clear to everyone else that he will still be their Larry King, but that Lindsay is a special case. It is not like all of the actors and actresses love Lindsay. Would you enjoy always having to watch your purse or wallet or clothes whenever she is invited to a party. Do you enjoy having to tell security to kick her out when she crashes your party? Ask her tough questions and the ratings will be way higher for much longer than the ten minute boost you will get for kissing her butt one night. That is of course assuming Lindsay shows up on November 20th.

I hope she keeps her boobies in check.

Fame whore will show up.

I'm sure people will watch. The same way they slow down if there's a crash on the side of the road.

Dee Lurker said...

I don't understand Enty on this. What "tough questions"? "how can you steal stupid shit from random rich people/companies?"?? I don't see the intrigue...

Amber said...

Wouldn't it be awesome if he started asking her about the PCH accident and all of her thefts, and she had a Dina meltdown on air and walked off the show?
Seriously do not understand why anyone walks on eggshells around her anymore.

Cathy said...

I'm sure that her people decided that Jay was the best route because his interviews are so incredibly scripted, so they knew there was no chance of her being asked a question she wasn't prepared to answer.

I remember back during the whole Conan fiasco, a celebrity (I think it was Hanks, but I don't remember) was ripping on Jay, talking about how pissed he gets if the guests don't follow the interview exactly as rehearsed. He said that if they talk about anything that didn't come up during rehearsals, they are not invited back on the show ever again.

As many jokes as he's made about her stealing, you'd think she wouldn't want to be on his show, but I guess publicity trumps everything else.

commandeered said...

I want her to come on Watch what happens live. I think Andy is pretty good about asking the questions no one wants to ask.

Did anyone see his interview with Rhianna?

Alicia said...

I'm still laughing about Jay Leno growing balls.. Entry he chopped his off looooong ago! You clearly think too highly of the schmuck

lc said...

Exactly my sentiments!
I would aslo like him to ask her about her total disregard of the Superstorm Sandy. Her tweeting that it was 'No big deal'
Not a big fan of either Leno or Lohan, but I might watch it on YouTube after it airs.

lc said...

Who is Andy??

Chilie said...

Lindsay has a big PR firm behind her now and if Jay goes after her (without their approval & knowledge), they, in turn, will retaliate by booking their other clients on every show except his.

That's what keeps interviewers in line. They don't give a hoot if a particular celebrity won't speak with them again. They care immensely if it means no access to dozens of celebs for a while until everyone kisses and makes up.

ButterKwup said...

Don't forget that he was the one who dared to ask Hugh Grant about the hooker arrest days after it happened. It's what put him on the map. I would be kind of surprised if he didn't at least needle her a bit.

Amber said...

@Chilie - how the hell did Lohan get a big PR firm to take her?? I wouldn't touch her with someone else's 10 ft pole.

Chilie said...

@ Butterkwup
Leno asked Hugh Grant those questions with his approval. This was part of the PR strategy to save his image & career after the hooker bust.

@ Amber
Money talks and she has to be paying them a healthy monthly retainer. Also, it's sort of a win-win for them; if she totally messes up, they can cut her loose and claim it is impossible to help her. If they succeed in boosting her image, keeping her out of jail, getting her more work, they can use it as a selling tool for other celebrities they are trying to snag as clients. As in, "See what we did for Lindsay? Imagine what we can do for you!" kind of thing.

Entwood, if you would read the comments on 'your' blog you would know that we told you this yesterday.

Happy Chocolatini said...

What PR firm would want her as a client?

fearofspam said...

What the hell is Kneepads? I keep seeing that mentioned and I think I'm the only one who doesn't know what it is.

car54 said...

No way Jay will ask her anything of substance--that's not his style at all. It will be a pre-planned short interview about the movie.

ButterKwup said...

Good point Chilie!

I hope he asks her how her plan for wining that Oscar is going.

Leno: "So, last time you were here you said next time you visited would be after you won your Oscar."
Lindsay: "Ummmm...yeah."
Leno: "Is that still the plan - to win the Oscar."
Lindsay: "Ummmm...yeah."
Leno: "When?"
Lindsay: "I said five years."
Leno: "Well you said that 2 years ago. What's different since then?"
Lindsay: "Um..the cops are out to get me."

donner said...

She's with a big firm who has also helped Mel Gibson and RDJ with their career overhaul. I was shocked anyone would want her either. How can she afford a firm right now? Whatever, I don't watch anything this bitch is on. And I won't. I've seen car wrecks. It's not pretty. Besides all the pertinent info will be on this site anyway...

Mango said...

PR firms aside (and Chilie, I'm astounded by your post!), Jay Leno is a total PUSSY and won't ask her anything controversial.

@ fearofspam - Kneepads refers to People Magazine

People magazine

AndyCane said...

Andy Cohen from Bravo. Watch What Happens Live is very entertaining

Bangagong said...

Also her lawyer's husband is the leader of Jay's house band

Small world

Sandy said...

Mel Gibson has had a career overhaul? Last I looked he was still a boozing douche running after young women. RDJ is different - he finally dried out, got himself together and basically conquered Hollywood again. Now THAT'S a success story which I believe has less to do with his PR firm and more to do with his management AND his own iron will.

I doubt this new PR film will be able to do much with Lohan. She crazy, she looks like hell and whatever talent she had as a kid appears to have deserted her.
