Some things just never change. Lindsay Lohan was a no-show at LAX for her scheduled 1 PM flight to the nation’s capital for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
We know Lindsay was supposed to be on the flight, along with her lawyer, Shawn Holley. Shawn made the flight, as did another passenger named George Clooney, who will also be at the dinner.
As for why Lindsay missed the flight … we’re told she just couldn’t pull it together. She PLANS on taking a later flight.
There are reports Lindsay was out late last night — although we have not confirmed it.
Funny … we asked Shawn Holley who was a more difficult client — Lindsay or OJ Simpson (Shawn worked for Johnnie Cochran during the OJ trial). Her answer: “I have no difficult clients.”
“She just couldn’t pull it together.” Is that seriously the best excuse someone could come up with? The last time Lindsay missed an important flight, it was from Hawaii back to L.A. for a court date. The given reason? Someone stole her purse. That was at least feasible, wasn’t it? But “she just couldn’t pull it together” sounds more like an excuse I would have given in college. I’d be like “listen, I know I was late for this meeting, but there was this party last night and I had a few too many drinks and I ended up with my bra on my head and I fell asleep on the porch and I just couldn’t pull it together.” That, I think, is a lot more understandable than Lindsay’s “I know I missed out on this chance to go to this really important event with the president of the country, but I was smoking meth/getting trashed/banging Terry Richardson and I just couldn’t pull it together.”
In light of Lindsay’s probable absence at the White House tomorrow evening, let’s take a moment to review Greta Van Susteren’s sad reason for inviting her:
Greta Van Susteren from Fox News Channel could have invited anyone she wanted to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, but she chose Lindsay Lohan because she’s rooting for her.
Greta has been mum on her dinner guest, but she told Harvey (because she’s known him for 100 years), “I love comebacks, and I’d like her to succeed.”
Greta thinks Lindsay is on the rebound, “She’s got a new movie and I’m hoping things work out for her.”
We hope things work out for her too, Greta. But I just don’t know if it’s going to happen this weekend.
