Lindsay Lohan spoofs legal troubles in 'SNL' promos

February 29, 2012 | 11:03 am

The promos are out for Lindsay Lohan's stint hosting "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, spoofing her activities in and out of Los Angeles County courtrooms over the last few years.

In one of the promotional videos released by NBC, Lohan banters with "SNL" cast member Kenan Thompson:

"It must be good to be back in the spotlight," Thompson says.

"Yeah, people are probably wondering what I’ve been up to," Lohan says.

"It’s unfortunate that people have been paying so little attention to you over the last few years."

"I know. If only magazines and websites would have documented my activities more closely."

"I would have liked to have known more about your personal life and what sorts of things you’ve been mixed up in."

"Definitely, I mean America could have used more information about me….and maybe even a picture or two."

Lohan is within weeks of completing her legal requirements for shoplifting and drunk driving convictions in Los Angeles and told the "Today" show in an interview to air this week: "I had to get that wakeup call."

A Los Angeles judge told her recently that her long-running legal troubles should be over by March 29.

"Miss Lohan, you're in the home stretch," Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner told Lohan this month. "You seem to be getting your life back on track."

Lohan told "Today" that despite her hard-partying reputation, she's "become more of a homebody. And I like that."

Asked if she can be trusted to resume her entertainment career, she added: "I think that that's gonna take -- I think that takes time. And I think that it's actions."
