Lindsay Lohan stands up Matt Lauer

Lindsay Lohan’s been open about what life is like under house arrest – giving an interview to Life & Style, filming commercials – but when Matt Lauer from “Today” showed up at her Venice Beach, California, home, Lohan clammed up.

The New York Post reports that Lauer flew to Los Angeles on Tuesday to interview the 24-year-old actress, who is now due back in court because she failed an alcohol test again.

According to the Post, once Lauer arrived at her home, Lohan wouldn’t come down out of her bedroom. An unnamed source told the paper, "They had been talking about it for a long time. But she refused to come down at the last minute. Matt was sitting in the chair on the first floor, waiting to do the interview with his crew all set up."

Although the Post cites an anonymous source claiming Lohan was to be paid for the interview, a rep for “Today” denies that there was any “licensing or payment agreement of any kind.” The “Today” spokesperson explains that "When [Lauer] arrived, she had a change of heart and wasn't prepared to talk for more than 15 minutes, as she had agreed, so the interview was canceled."

Lohan’s rep concurs, noting that he was the one to pull her out of it. "No money was involved, and I was the one who called [the interview] off."

Lauer did address the situation this morning on “Today,” telling viewers after a segment about Lohan’s impending return to court, “Some of you may have heard that I was with Lindsay on Tuesday afternoon at her home in Los Angeles. We were supposed to sit down for an interview to talk about her current situation and her plans for the future.”

At the last minute, Lauer continued, “Lindsay and her people did express concerns about the timing of the interview and it was canceled. I think we're learning more this morning about the reasons for their concern."

    People should just leave her alone & worry about their own problems which everyone has. To slander someone because they have a problem is pathetic because 100% of people writing on this have issues. She seems like a fine person who likes to drink (which as an adult she has every right to do) & since people follow her like a flea on a dog it seems like shes a bad person. Have someone follow you for 5 years and tell me there wont be one instance anywhere where you dont slip up. Exactally. Leave the poor girl alone, stop the media from being mental head cases about her and let the poor girl just live like a human not like some side show at the zoo.

      Did you really just imply that only black people are not racist? There, that is a racist statement, and you just helped remind us all that the general population is stupid. There are racist people of every race,religion, whatever. When someone like you makes a statement such as "Black people are not racist, it's every other race" you make black people look stupid to everyone else. It is very true. Don't be a spokesperson for a race unless you are a decent person k thanks.

    Lohan is a "has been" and the media needs to stop addressing her stupidity as it is only glorifying her ability to avoid some serious jail time. Personally, she needs more jail time, a good swift kick in the butt and to NOT be in the news anymore. Once people stop caring, which I am sure most have by now, then maybe she will just crawl back into the hole she came out of and disappear.

    John above says "I'm a doctor". I always get concerned when someone introduces themself by first stating "im a doctor". At least John acknowledges that view Alcoholism is widely held in the medical community, and particularly in the area of Psychiatry. In fact alcoholism is recognized as a disease and is in the DSM of psychatric diseases as is drug addiction. Certainly the medical and science evidence is supportive of physiologic changes, including neuroplastic changes in brain reward circuitry, that is consistent with biologic underpinnings of dependency. So in there is not only clinical evidence but also mechanistic evidence to support alcholism as a disease. So, John, "as a doctor", I find it highly unethical to not recognize alcholism as a disease and in violation of the oath you took.....Primum Non Nocere! Obviously this Lohan needs intervention, and in this case it is serious enough for legal intervention.

      Sorry Mike. But anyone with an actual knowledge of Medicine and Psychology would know that Alcoholism being a "disease" is very iffy. It doesn't meet any of the qualifications to actually be a "disease" but it is labeled so anyway. I used to do alot of drugs when I was younger, and during my trips in and out of rehab I was told that I had a disease and no matter what I did I would always need to work on a program to help remind myself not to do drugs. Years later I became an adult and realized all I have to do is not do drugs. It is not a disease, it is a joke of a weakness. Sorry, firsthand experienced meth "addict" here saying, drug and alcohol addiction is more of a brainwashing technique then a disease.

    Oh and to all the ignorant people who think alcoholism/drug addiction is a choice and not a disease please educate yourself. Do you think people really want to be like that? Dont speak about things you really know nothing about. And until your walk a mile in their shoes...you should just shut up.

    To a celebrity bad publicity is still publicity. Some stars will do anything to keep their name in the lime light. Her being a junkie/alcoholic isnt anything new. So that cant be the reason she cancelled. Matt Lauer is a noted journalist and I think she made a big mistake blowing him off. But then again the girl never did have any sense about her. Shes already a washed up has been. Shes gonna eventually screw herself out of Hollywood for good if she doesnt straighten up soon.

      I agree with the others. Alcoholism is NOT a disease, labeling it as such attempts to fool people into thinking it's something that is beyond your control and a way to get some sympathy. You CHOOSE to pick up a drink. NO ONE chooses to have cancer, etc. One is an avoidable bad habit/addiction, the other is an unforeseen tragedy.

      As a recovering drug addict, I can tell you that substance abuse is certainly a disease. Even after the physical withdrawal symptoms are gone, the addict's brain chemistry is forever changed. For those of us who are genetically predisposed to substance abuse and addiction, it is a struggle every day of our lives to stay sober. It's not something you can really understand if you haven't experienced it yourself.

      The co-morbity rate of anxiety, major depression and bipolar disorder is very high among addicts. Alcohol and drug abuse are often a way of self medicating. A lot more research is needed. The disease can be arrested but not with out extensive help. People do have to cooperate in the treatment.

      Alcholoism as definied by the American Medical Association

      The Definition of AlcoholismRobert M. Morse, MD; Daniel K. Flavin, MD
      [+] Author Affiliations

      the Joint Committee of the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence and the American Society of Addiction Medicine to Study the Definition and Criteria for the Diagnosis of Alcoholism
      AbstractTo establish a more precise use of the term alcoholism, a 23-member multidisciplinary committee of the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence and the American Society of Addiction Medicine conducted a 2-year study of the definition of alcoholism in the light of current concepts. The goals of the committee were to create by consensus a revised definition that is (1) scientifically valid, (2) clinically useful, and (3) understandable by the general public. Therefore, the committee agreed to define alcoholism as a primary, chronic disease with genetic, psychosocial, and environmental factors influencing its development and manifestations. The disease is often progressive and fatal. It is characterized by impaired control over drinking, preoccupation with the drug alcohol, use of alcohol despite adverse consequences, and distortions in thinking, most notably denial. Each of these symptoms may be continuous or periodic.

      From the CDC

      Dependency on alcohol, also known as alcohol addiction and alcoholism4, is a chronic disease. The signs and symptoms of alcohol dependence include—

      A strong craving for alcohol.
      Continued use despite repeated physical, psychological, or interpersonal problems.
      The inability to limit drinking.

      As the spouse of a recovering alcoholic, I can honestly tell you there is no cure for alcoholism. Its is a continuous day to day struggle. There are great days, good days, hard days, and days where you have to start over. I can't even begin to describe the experiences I've endured, but I know that I wouldn't have been able to if I didn't love her so much. Those of you who don't believe it is a disease clearly has no experience with it, and you really need to get a book and read before addressing the issue. You'd think there would be far less ignorant people on the internet, considering all the free information it can provide...

      I'm a doctor, but I have a few problems with calling alcholism a disease. Here are the relevant facts. First, some people do have a greater genetic predisposition to becoming addicted to alcohol and after years of drinking experience both altered brain structure and severe withdrawal symptoms when avoiding alcohol–there's no disagreement on these matters. Having said that, it is not universally accepted by the medical community that alcoholism is a disease, and some feel that applying the "disease" label may make alcoholics feel like controlling their addiction is out of their hands. It certainly shouldn't be interpreted in this way, as there are plenty of diseases in which patients are instructed to limit their intake of certain foods to keep their illness under control. My own feeling is that alcoholism does not follow the typical model of what we think a disease is and perhaps it is potentially confusing or even harmful to label it as such. To be fair, this is not the majority opinion within the medical community.

      Alcoholism is indeed a disease. Just because poor choices may have contributed to the disease like smoking leads to cancer, over eating to heart disese, or poor eating habits lead to diabetes does not make it less so. Once a person is addicted their brain is permanently rewired and they are on a slippery slope for life, hence the term relapse. Those of you who don't understand are so fortunate especially considering your ignorance.
