Lindsay Lohan: CBS confused when it said she would read Letterman's Top-10 list [updated with new video]
[Update]: Lindsay Lohan says she will not -- repeat not -- appear on David Letterman's CBS late night talk show Thursday to read his top-10 list, contrary to CBS's announcement.
"I am NOT going to be doing David Letterman, I'm not sure how this happened, but I am sorry for the confusion," La Lohan tweeted, hours after the network issued a news release touting her Thursday appearance on "Late Show With David Letterman" via satellite to read Dave's Top-10 list.
[Update to the Update]: Letterman's Worldwide Pants production company weighed in hours later:
"Lindsay Lohan will not be delivering a Top Ten list on Thursday's [show], 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."
Hours later, Lohan's father, Michael Lohan, announced, via TMZ, that he was that someone purporting to be a friend of Lindsay's. Which means there's a 50-50 chance it's true.
The topic of the list they had prepared for Lohan to read will, alas, forever remain one of those great mysteries of TV. We're guessing it would have something to do with her recent date in court, during which she was officially booked on charges of felony grand theft for allegedly walking off with a $2,500 necklace from a trendy Venice, Calif. jewelry store.
Of course, the big take-away from that court date was the Little White and Wildly Inappropriate Kimberly Ovitz-Designed Dress that Lohan wore for her court appearance -- she looked fab -- which immediately sold out online.
Letterman discussed the mix-up while taping Wednesday's show. Here's a look:
