David Letterman 'apologizes' to Lindsay Lohan

For once the joke was on David Letterman —  the talk-show host has admitted he was "duped" into thinking that Lindsay Lohan had agreed to appear on the "Late Show."

As Marquee previously reported, Lohan recently denied the "Late Show's" claims that she was set to deliver the Top Ten list tonight, tweeting, "I'm not sure how this happened, but I am sorry for the confusion."

Now Letterman is clearing the air on how it all went down.

The debacle began last week, following an episode in which he devoted his entire Top Ten list to Lohan and poked fun at the troubled star.

"The next day I get a call and it's a guy and he says, 'Lindsay thought the joke was hilarious.' Now you know Lindsay is gonna stand trial for stealing stuff," Letterman explained last night. "So the guy says, 'Lindsay thought that joke was hilarious, she wants to be on your show,' and I said, 'Great, great!' "

Letterman told the show's publicist to spread the word immediately.

"It goes around the world," he said. "People are just, 'are you kidding me? This is gonna be fantastic, this is gonna be like the Super Bowl'... And then Lindsay Lohan says, 'Oh, you know none of that's happening.' ...It turns out we were duped. And I have no one to blame but myself, and boy is my face red."

Ultimately, Letterman joked, "I need to apologize to the Lindsay Lohan family. I hope I didn't embarrass you, Lindsay, or your family."

    She didn't steal any thing the store neglected to ask her to payfor it. If I gave you a tank of gas, and didn't ask you to pay for it, and you left, and I called the cops is that fair?You and I know the clerk thought he was gona take it out in trade, and when his boss found out about it he yelled theft. Lindsay wouldn't hurt a fly.

Even our "JUSTICE SYSTEM" provides her a great "INJUSTICE". It serves no one to force an individual into rehab. She has clearly and loudly shown repeatedly that it is not on her agenda. Big waste of her time and tax payer dollars. Big waste of a life. Will we ever learn? How sad.

    That's what i love about this racist red neck country... never miss a chance to kick a person when they are down.. Can't even think beyond the blind angry rage inside that attacks anything moving to make themselves feel a little better about the miserable no life they live... The media has turned lohan into a magnet for this rage and all you robots can do is puke bile on command when the media jerks your chain... never realizing that it's the function of the media to keep you in a state of rage so you'll vote for fat pentagon contractors and support the rage and death machine..

    I love lindsay lohan! Why? Because she slams it in your face what incredible hypocrites and vile people americans are.. which you can see if you just look at what is posted here.. Showing your true colors to the world! So much for the christian values I imagine a lot of them subscribe to.. no rational thought here.. just the rabid mad dog bark of the pathetically sick!

      I agree with "Dave" on his comment...never was and same deal with Leno....they were both slotted at times on Carson and they were both lame in their comedy. The funny part is that most and I still laugh why they are still on the air after many years and never did nothing notible than stand up their to say what the comedy writers say. Robin Williams would of been the premier comedian host from that era and did go on carson and made many successful movies, ones of comedy and Leno/Letterman are just lame.

    We are giving this so much attention because the American people don't know how to deal with what is happening to them and we need distractions to remain sane. While the governments in the Middle East are being toppled one by one by a growing grass roots movement towards democracy, the people of the United States are sitting by while our wealth is sucked away from us. This isn't a Democrat or Republican issue. It's not secularism vs. religion. It's a human issue and we are asleep at the wheel. I am afraid for my children. I am highly educated and I have travelled the world, worked in China and was even a USAF officer but I just don't know what to do. I have $10 in my pocket. Where is our hero? Where is our movement? Can anyone tell me how I can be that hero because I don't even feel like I have a voice anymore in this soup of misinformation?

    What I find really saddening is the amount of people with a criminal history who can not find jobs because of their past, but the entertainment Industry seems to be immune. Why do past criminals keep on getting gigs and have people talk about them? Should be the same everywhere, it should be much harder for criminal actors/artists to find jobs instead of always giving them a second, third, fourth chance...

    Look there are people who live their lives through other peoples miseries which is what is the ratings bonanza they all fight for (and are the results of). The people that follow this crap are not likely to watch any of the great shows that get get cancelled because the majority of the TV veiwers are watching this kinda junk. Until this past election where the young people said ENOUGH and put Obama in office where most of the usuals would be apathetic and vote for Bush for a 3rd term . Point is this is a stupid country with stupid people as the majority. Just ask around who watches FOX NEWS and ask them what kind of education did you get? These are the people that don't let facts get in the way. They just want a story they can follow. As in SIMPLE for simple the minded DUH!!!!

    We already know how dimwitted and unreliable she is. I don't doubt it was a stupid joke on her part. She should have gone on to show she can stand up to the heat. It ususally goes away once people realize it doesn't bother the person. Does she think it only happens to her? Has she never poked fun at anyone? It was funny. Letterman is a nice guy to apologize even though I feel the sarcasim and his thought of the adsurdity of it all.

      Yes, she is a human being – why then are we treating her as a godess? She can act – we ALL have skills and I haven't figured out why acting puts her ahead of us. She is an American and human – let her have all the same rights (w/out the perks) we do which includes, if found guilty of stealing or driving impaired, she must pay the penalty. What gives her the 'Get out of jail free' card just because she is much luckier than I am financially? And WHAT made Paris Hilton famous other than being born to a VERY rich family?

    Lohan is tha Paris Hilton of the new decade. Famous only because she's famous. What novelty. I guess a lot of people relate to this kind of person in the early 20's 'party all the time', 'live off your parent's plastic', 'can't get a job', 'in and out of rehab', 'good for nothing', 'I want to live in la la land forever' generation.

      False Lohan has been in acting since she was a child... That is why she is famous... Don't confuse Lohan for Paris Hilton who is the one that is actually famous because of her family name.

      Lindsay doesn't live off her parent's plastic. She's the one with the money. I think sometimes they try to live off her! She's been in many movies, so she does work. I'm not a Lindsay fan, and do agree that she needs to really get her head together before it's to late, but it can't be said that she doesn't work or that she lives off her parents.

      Ok Lohan defenders, sorry but what has she done lately....Sorry, but she has turned into Hilton. She is an unemployed druggie. She git dropped like a hot potato from her last movie because no one wants to work with her.... because she is unpredictable....do you know what you have to do in Hollywood to be too unpredictable??? Look at Robert Downey, Jr and Charlie Sheen. Come on, she is a MESS.

      HOW can he embarrass her and her family? She's already an embarrassment to herself and her family.

      Actually the joke is on Letterman. He makes fun of her but he would totally kiss her ass to get her on the show. I don't know if this was planned but if it was it was a brilliant joke. I am going to be on your show and then sike no I'm not. Then he apologized to everyone including her. The irony is everyone talking about how messed up she is and everyone can't wait to find out about her or get her on their show. It's Hollywood. Hopefully if she doesn't end up like John Bellushi she will "recover" from her problems and win an Oscar. Then she will be the strong talented woman who "overcame" her demons to have success. Though she does have problems it is funny how the media makes up the dramas in the first place.

      For the same reason shows like American Idol and other reality shows are popular. For the same reason some has an accident on the freeway and everyone has to slow down and hold everyone else's lives. Because American's enjoy watching other's misfortune and are addicted to knowing what everyone else is doing.

      I find it hilarious to read peoples thoughts on someone elses life. Seriously if you made that much money and were around that many drugs who wouldnt have fun with it. People are not as old fashion as they once were. Knowledge about drugs are all over the net so the old fake ads that would tell you your brain is just like this egg on drugs are funny instead of informative. Shes a cute girl with a lucky break in life. How she is living it is up to her. If you dont like the way she acts or how she lives her life then stop watching her movies/shows and stop clicking on these links to read about her then comment on how much she sucks. Granted the media is constantly up her ass. If she J walks I promise you it will be on CNN's front page. Im sure she doesnt mind to much. Any publicity is good publicity.

      War on Drugs – What's wrong with that? Or should it be "Free drugs for everyone!"
