Michael Lohan takes credit, David Letterman 'apologizes' to Lindsay Lohan [Poll]
We're not going to lie -- when the Ministry asked earlier who readers thought Lindsay Lohan's Letterman-booking "friend" might be, we did have our eyes on a favorite. And were we the betting type, Michael Lohan's yeah-I'm-the-friend admission Wednesday would've paid off.
It wouldn't have been a big jackpot, because given Michael Lohan's track record, the odds were around 3-2 or better that he had a hand in the confusion about whether Lindsay would deliver Thursday's Top 10 list on "Late Show With David Letterman."
Lindsay tweeted Tuesday night that she'd never agreed to a satellite appearance on the show; Michael told TMZ on Wednesday that he was the one who'd set up the deal, allegedly with his daughter's OK, but that her reps put the kibosh on it.
"Anything positive that I bring into her life ... [her people] try to nix it," Michael Lohan said.
One thing that dad did bring into Lilo's life, directly or indirectly, was an apology -- technically speaking -- from Letterman, who seized the opportunity to repeat his Top 10 list joke about her stealing a Grammy from last weekend's award show, and to keep his face absolutely deadpan as he said he hoped he hadn't embarrassed the Lohan family.
"I have no one to blame but myself," Letterman said, "and boy is my face red."
Watch the video and let us know what you think of Letterman's apology.
