Lindsay Lohan Not Delivering ‘Letterman’ Top 10 Because Booking Was Fake (Or Was It?)

By Aly Semigran

Even on relatively low-key days, the saga of Lindsay Lohan only gets weirder. As soon as the excitement began to build that the troubled actress (who is currently out on $40,000 bail from her felony grand theft charges) would be appearing on “The Late Show With David Letterman” to deliver the Top Ten List, it was just as quickly taken away.

The “Mean Girls” star, who was supposed to appear on Thursday (February 17) night’s episode of the show (other guests scheduled to for that evening include fellow controversial celebrity party girl Paris Hilton), wrote on her Twitter page late on Tuesday (February 15), “I am NOT going to be doing David Letterman, I’m not sure how this happened, but I am sorry for the confusion.”

As it turns out, LiLo wasn’t pulling her followers legs. On Wednesday morning (February 16), CBS/Worldwide Pants (Letterman’s production company) released a statement which read, “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.”

Apparently, the booking was made by none other than Lohan’s dad Michael. He claims that Lindsay knew about the booking and gave her approval before the call was made. Like many things surrounding Lohan, it raises a ton of questions. Who contacted Worldwide Pants to tell them they had been duped? If Lindsay was never aware of the booking, what did Michael Lohan hope to accomplish? And if Lindsay did know about it, why did she back out? Oh, unknowable universe, we need answers!

Because we feel like we’ve been robbed of some quality late night television in the form of Lohan’s Top Ten, here’s a couple of Top Ten lists we would have loved to see the actress deliver on the show.
