Lindsay Lohan Finds Herself In The Hot Seat On ‘Letterman’
Lindsay Lohan (in a dress that may or may not make it back to its rightful home in one piece), appeared last night on The Late Show With David Letterman, her first televised interview since November 2012 (scroll down for video).
Letterman, bless his heart, asked Lohan what many an interviewer has been instructed not to ask, diverting our attention away from Scary Movie 5 and her guest spot on Charlie Sheen’s Anger Management.
“Now, aren’t you supposed to be in rehab now?” Letterman asked.
“Do you not watch anything that goes on? …May 2nd,” Snarkalufugus retorted.
“How long will you be in rehab?” Letterman pressed on, clearly amused by this entire circus act.
“Three months,” Lohan answered.
Letterman continued the charade, because that’s what you do when Lindsay Lohan is sitting across from you.
“How many times have you been in rehab?”
1, 2, 7…who’s counting?
Ah, we’ve hit a nerve.
“’We didn’t discuss this in the pre-interview,’ I’m just saying to everyone,” Lohan said with awkward laugh.
“No, I think, to be honest, I’m the happiest when I’m working and the healthiest, and I think this an opportunity for me to, you know, focus on what I love in life,” Lohan answered candidly. “And I don’t think it’s a bad thing. I think it’s a blessing…and not a curse.”
“Now, do you have addiction problems?” Letterman asked with feigned seriousness (or genuine? I can’t tell).
“Now you sound like Dr. Phil,” Lohan answered, her eyes a sort of Mckayla’s-not-impressed.
“Yeah, I’m sorry. Is it, like, alcohol? Do you drink too much?”
“We’ve discussed this in the past,” Lohan told him.
We’re losing her. Quick, Letterman. Do something!
“Did we really?” Letterman pondered. “When did we discuss – now I’m the one who’s having the blackouts…I oughta be at rehab. For the love of God, what is wrong with me?”
Laughs all around. Everybody gets a trip to rehab!
