Lindsay Lohan promotes upcoming rehab on David Letterman’s show

Lindsay Lohan promotes upcoming rehab

Lindsay Lohan Chapter 336

Lindsay Lohan appeared on David Letterman’s late night show last night.  Why the troubled young woman would appear anywhere in public is a question I cannot answer.  She has nothing to promote, with the exception of her appearance in “Scary Movie 5”, and her recent court appearance and upcoming rehab are the only things going on In her life.

It was a scheduled appearance, and she even showed up on time, unlike her court dates.

It didn’t take Letterman long to bring out his sarcastic side.  He rehashed some old jokes while she listened and tried to remain cool.

Then he went off of the prepared questions Ms. Lohan had been given prior to her appearance.

“Aren’t you supposed to be in rehab?” he asked, but Lohan held her ground. “Do you not watch anything that goes on? May 2,” she responded, adding that she’ll be in for a three-month stint. As for how many times she’s been, the actress just leaves it at “several.”

Letterman continued to press her for information about her rehab.  She told him she was on his show to promote “Scary Movie 5”.

“I thought you were going to be nice!” she said, looking over his list of topics, pausing on the question of why she’s always in trouble.

“I don’t know, I couldn’t answer that,” Lohan said. “I’m a target, I’ve always been. … I take full responsibility for it, and it wasn’t funny, and I was being immature, and I was going through a phase and I had a lot of family stuff going on and things in life, and you grow up and you mature. And I’ve said that a million times, and I know that, but what else am I supposed to say when it’s a process of life? I’m not trying to deny anything or any situation that I’ve been in.”

Her attempts to make light of the topic obviously failed as she was seen tearing up towards the end of the interview.

“We never thought we’d see you again, honestly, because of the jokes and stuff,” Letterman told her. “But you have enough spine, enough sense of yourself, enough poise to come out here and talk to me.”

This is not the first child-star-turned-adult with problems that I have seen, and, thanks to Justin Bieber, I’m sure it won’t be the last.  But reading and watching Ms. Lohan over the last half-a-dozen years or so, makes me wonder if she takes all of this seriously.

Annette Funicello is rolling over in her grave.
