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:

I'm curious - how did people even know what dress it was to buy it out online so quickly?

Of course not! Reading the Top Ten list would require that she actually know how to read.

OMG first let me stop rolling on the floor with laughter at Jon Stewart and his Barry White smooth singer on sex should be against the law to be that d@ funny about politics hahahaha..Oprah got this one right, now onto the ditzy Hollywood starlets...

Lindsay reads the book called "GaGas guide to how to play the media and fame wh@@@s!" I agree that dress was slammin BUT she knew better than to wear it to court. She had an agenda which has worked up to this point. I would STILL be sitting in jail if I did some of the sh@ she has gotten away with. Oh Daddy Lohan ooops I mean Cyrus, as John Stossel would say "Give me a d@ break. NOW you have regrets when pimped daughter grows up and wants to do things HER WAY. Remember daddy once fam made the millions they didn't need you anymore...ask daddy Lohan hahahaha"

I want to see if Will and Jada's kids are next......

It is obvious she is sad and struggling. Anyone (not here) with an ounce of compassion would hope she can straighten her course before the ship wrecks.
She will need help in the future, how about letting her get it in peace ?

The "ship" and/or train wrecked awhile ago and has had the opportunity to help herself but apparently needs more help now, not in the future.

One finds peace with oneself, not through others.

Besides, anybody who wears a dress like that to court has a few screws loose.
